Retaliation is a Crime: Part II

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

If you haven’t read Part I, Please go to Part I.

Retaliation Is A Crime! You Need to Run the Criminals Out of the Community! Only Then Will You Be Able To Walk the Streets, Drive Your Car, Speak Your Mind, Send Your Children to School with Peace of Mind! Get Rid of Retaliation in Coeymans and Live Your Lives In Peace! Learn What Retaliation Is and Complain!

Fight Back…NOW!

When you think “retaliation” you must think of it in terms of how the law defines it. If you don’t use that standard definition, anyone you speak to or complain to won’t know whether you are talking about what the law protects you against. That’s the way it works. If you use the right terms and understand what they mean, you gain credibility; if you don’t, well, the criminals will rule.

So, when you talk or write about, or when you file a claim against a public official or department about retaliation, here is a good definition to work by:

 A definition: Retaliation is defined and prohibited by a number of laws and is illegal, it is a crime. We are provinding a good working best definitions of retaliations as itis expressed in most lawas against retaliation and coercion:

(a) No private or public entity shall discriminate against any individual because that individual has opposed any act or practice made unlawful by the Constitution of the United States, state or federal law, local law or custom , or because that individual made a charge, testified, assisted, or participated in any manner in an investigation, proceeding, or hearing under the United States Constitution or any of its Amendments, the Bill of Rights, state or federal law, local law or custom or any part thereof.

(b) No private or public entity shall coerce, intimidate, threaten, or interfere with any individual in the exercise or enjoyment of, or on account of his or her having exercised or enjoyed, or on account of his or her having aided or encouraged any other individual in the exercise or enjoyment of, any right granted or protected by the the  United States Constitution or any of its Amendments, the Bill of Rights,, state or federal law, local law or custom.

(c) Illustrations of conduct prohibited by the laws against retaliation or coersion include, but are not limited to:

(1) Coercing an individual to deny or limit the benefits, services, or advantages to which he or she is entitled as a resident or citizen;
(2) Threatening, intimidating, or interfering with an individual who is seeking to obtain or use the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, or accommodations of a public accommodation;
(3) Intimidating or threatening any person because that person is assisting or encouraging an individual or group entitled to claim the rights granted or protected by the the  United States Constitution or any of its Amendments, the Bill of Rights, federal or local laws, custom to exercise those rights; or
(4) Retaliating against any person because that person has participated in any investigation or action to enforce civil or constitutional, natural  or human rights.

The dictionary definition of retaliation is misleading: “retaliation, n. -Syn. vengeance, reprisal, punishment; see revenge,” and that’s why it’s so important for you to use the legal definitions of retaliation and to provide details and facts that show that the misconduct is a violation of the legal definition of retaliation or coercion.

Retaliation happens against students by teachers, against parents through their children, government through police or other agencies against citizens, landlords against tenants, employers against employee. Because people live in fear of retaliation and ignorance of the law protecting them, no one really knows how widespread retaliation and coercion is in communities, or how often it occurs; but the people experiencing it know it exists and how it affects them. You, reader, may be one of them so pay attention. You don’t have to put up with it anymore!

 Yet, wherever parents or citizens gather and whenever they talk among themselves, the topic of retaliation receives lively attention.

Anyone who advocates for children  or for justice and fairness in the community or for freedom of speech or freedom of association as guaranteed under the United States Constitution can become the target of retaliation. (Individuals across the country are winning million-dollar lawsuits against schools, teachers, government, police for illegal retaliation and coercion.)

Retaliation or coercion is the act of using official power or authority or resources to illegally “punish” residents. The causes of retaliation are no mystery and there are two key ingredients: power and accountability – too much power and not enough accountabilty.

The mechanism that seems to trigger retaliation is effective advocacy. Retaliation occurs in an environment where officials view any opinions differing from their own or any questioning of their power as an unwanted imposition or as a way to develop an alternative power base or community action. When school officials or public servants translate their responsibilities and duties to citizens, residents, children and families into unquestioned, absolute decision making power over them. The profile of such officials can take two forms: openly hostile or smoothly deceptive, the latter preferring passive aggressive resistance.

Hostile officials on the other hand use their position as an instrument of power to openly intimidate and even punish citizens, students, parents, even groups. (Without what is called due process, this is a violation of the provisions of the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights!)

Most people never encounter retaliation because they are “sheeple,” people who unquestioningly and stupidly accept anything they get fed. Those who do experience retaliation and coercion however, are usually strong advocates for citizens’ rights, the betterment of the community (advocates for cleaning up politics, change), special disadvantaged or marginalized people without power such as the poor, the elderly, children. Regardless, retaliation does occur and the fear of retaliation inhibits many citizens. This gives school and government officials and the police wide latitude to become dictators, tyrants, to do what they damned well please.

Patterns of retaliation can be classified into three levels. Level I, the most frequent, is low-level passive activity, with the goal of delaying the process. Level II is more overt; the goal is to scare parents. Level III is the form of open hostility and the goal is to punish you. Level III retaliation is rare, but costly, dramatic, and damaging. After you read the descriptions below, you’ll probably have no doubts that you have been the victim of retaliation and coercion!

Level I – Delay. The goal at this level of retaliation is to reduce your effectiveness as citizens, residents, or as parents effectiveness by passive resistance, such as the introduction of delays and obstacles in the many processes involved in responding to problems or to complaints. There are numerous ways officials can achieve this result. One is simply playing dumb. This allows officials to effectively ignore the law and your rights under the law. Another is “forgetting” to do things. An official may repeatedly forget to follow-up on a commitment, such as getting back to parents with further information, or fail to schedule further meetings without several reminders. Being “away from the phone,” so often that parents give up on some important issue is also effective. Yet another technique is overly technical interpretations of laws and regulations. Level I does not appear hostile, but it can be extremely effective.

 Level II – Fear. Level II retaliation is not hidden. At this stage officials may appear to be openly frustrated and hostile. They will state that they won’t for example, allow you to have records or observe a process, or a class, or won’t permit certain kinds of activities. The list of “can’t do’s” is quite long. Most of it however, is bluff.

Level II retaliation is based on putting up a tough front in an effort to scare citizens or parents and reduce their advocacy. It is is all based on their expectation that you are ignorant of your rights and of the law. While it can be very effective, you can break through this barrier by learning more about the laws and regulations and simply insisting on compliance. Once past the obstacles, you will usually find that resistance is eliminated, because you will probably know more than they do (this is especially true when faced with ignorant village and town justices!).

Level III – Punishment. At this level, retaliation can get ugly, with officials or police openly threatening and actively trying to punish you. In this war-like situation, officials and police have a variety of weapons to choose from. One is the fair hearing (due process hearing) process. Government, and schools, too, (because YOU give them the money by accepting their budget!) have vast financial resources to transform hearings into major trial-like proceedings. Since there is no accountability to taxpayers for the large sums spent in such legal adventures, officials have free rein to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars (HamiltonCounty TN v. Zachary Deal is a case, where the school district spent at least 2.8 million dollars on attorneys’ fees to fight parents of a child with autism), and you have no say in it! You gave them a budget!

Aiding and abetting this practice is a network of attorneys who specialize in fighting citizens and parents. These attorneys are organized into a professional group which holds national conferences and training programs at the local level. School and government officials are invited to attend these conferences where they are tutored in the finer points of “aggressive action,” in the form of strategies to be used before a due process meeting or at the pre-hearing conference of a due process or fair hearing. There have been recent reports of a menacing new form of retaliation involving the fabrication of child abuse charges against the target parent. Such allegations can trigger an investigation by Child Protective Services which has police-like powers. Pending the outcome of their investigation, they may choose to remove children from the home. Level III is so serious that most people need an attorney to protect themselves.

Therefore, it’s extremely important to nip retaliation and coercion in the bud; to tell government, police, and schools they have their power and authority because YOU allow it…YOU give it to them and YOU can take it back.

But as you can see in the patterns of retaliation and coercion, the longer you let it go, the more difficult it is to get rid of. It’s like any disease: you neglect it and it’s going to kill you!

 Only YOU can put a stop to retaliation in the community. The Coeymans Police Department, certain members of the RCS CSD Board of Education, certain members of the RCS teachers association, and the village idiots that they recruit to do their dirty work are all agents of retaliation and coercion. Those people are interested in hanging on to their criminal power and will retaliate and coerce to keep that power. You know who they are and it’s time you stand up, speak up, and fight back. We’re providing you with the information and the tools to do just that! Fight Back! Take back your freedoms, your peace of mind, your lives!

Stop Being Pushed Around!

Here are some useful links:

And Remember….

A strong community represents the residents in the trenches and not the interests of the people in power”.

An administration that allows its members to be disrespected, is an administration that no longer deserves the respect of its residents.

When our educational leaders ignore input from the community, the programs they push are destined to fail.

The Coeymans Rule: “When Truth Fails, Just Lie!”

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

“When the Spirit of Truth comes, he will guide you into all the Truth” John 16:12-15

It Seems That When the Personal Attacks and Self-Esteem Problems of a RCS Central School District Board of Education Member, Josephine O’Connor, Don’t Gain Any Ground–And She’s Shown to Be A Liar–She Enlists Her Father and the Corrupt Coeymans Police to Defend Her Dishonor!

The Fat Bastard Will Be Named Soon!

It’s a Psychological Fact That When People See A Picture or Read a Text, They See What They Want to See or Read What they Want to Understand. Imagine What Can Happen When A Sociopath or An Illiterate Foul-mouthed Oaf Enter the Equation! Then Add the Compromised, Corrupt Coeymans Police and It Really Gets Ugly!

But one fact is abundantly clear:

Another one? Can you afford it, Coeymans?

If there was an arrest made without probable cause and, given the circumstances that point indisputably toward an agenda of wanton retaliation, and if law enforcement acted imprudently on the merest allegation of an already known perp, and on that flimsiest of evidence failed to make due inquiry as to probable cause and failed to exercise the least damaging but effective power to prevent a crime or disturbance, there will be law suits and there will be prosecution. Don’t be mistaken! There had better been solid evidence on which to proceed, and a known loose cannon and  liar’s word is NOT, at least not in this country (yet), probable cause; at least as of this evening we still have a principle of due process.

The Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk System
Is this the American Way?

We’ve already reported on the Coeymanazis and the compromised and corrupt Coeymans Police Department (see our article Corrupt Coeymans Police Effectiveness Compromised!!!). And we’ve also reported on the underhanded, scandalous practice in the High School of teachers enlisting students to bully other students in retaliation (see our articles  Schools, Superintendent:  No Response to Allegations of Bullying… and Stop the Presses…EXTRA! Bully Gangs at RCS). We’ve reported on James Latter’s misconduct and his involvement in the RCS Athletic Association’s allegedly fraudulent activities (see  James Latter: Why Is He Still On the Board of Education?). And we’ve reported on Gerald “Jerry” Deluca’s conflicts of interest in his so-called “public affairs” and political influence business while an employee of the scandalous Coeymans Police Department (see Can You Explain This, Jerry?). Do you really need to be reminded of some of the irregularities before, during, and after the 2012-13 school budget vote? (If you do, please see our article, More Irregularities in the Voting?).

Wisdom & Justice

The phenomenon of the BLOGGER…that disembodied VOICE in the heads of the Coeymanazis…has become an obsession, the monkey on thier backs driving them absolutely nutters! So like any good gang of psychopaths, they lash out at the harpies, the black flies that are driving them to distraction…but they’re fighting a spirit: the Spirit of Truth! The Spirit of Fairness! The Spirit of Justice! And they want to destroy it in any way possible.

Which brings us full circle to the most recent events of what sick minds can do:

We recently published an article, at Josephine O’Connor’s explicit invitation, reproducing and commenting on her antics at the RCS High School (see Josephine O’Connor: A Role Model of Maturity and Mental Stability…NOT!). It appears that Ms O’Connor not only has self-esteem problems and hearing problems, she has problems with the truth, and she seems also to have problems with her eyesight and her reading. But those are mild compared to the problems O’Connor’s most recent antics are causing!

First of all, we hear, one of O’Connor’s relatives, allegedly her father [pending verification of name], from whom O’Connor allegedly was “estranged” for a number of years, appeared at a local business and put on a disorderly display of foul-mouthed, local low-life misconduct that was excused for what it was, considering the source, but the fat fool couldn’t let it rest and accept his good luck. No! He then called the home of another RCS board of education member and launch an avalanche of obscenities and threats which, in fact, later got him arrested later that evening.

Did he stop there? No! Of course not! Far be it from him to have learned that civilized behavior is rewarded, he had to retaliate in the only way a true low-life could: He made a false allegation, with no proof or substantiation whatsoever, and filed a false instrument to have the person he originally verbally abused arrested! (Now what’s that saying about the apple not falling far from the tree? Can you help us out here, Josephine O’Connor?)

It’s A Bad Habit but It’s Yours!

This is an example of the desperation of sick small-town minds, the minds we have to deal with on a daily basis in this area, but especially in that den of Coeymanazis in the double-wide and their friends.

As it turns out, O’Connor will be leaving the RCS board of education in a couple of weeks and has been trying to do some damage–as if she hasn’t done enough already–and where her underhanded coup-d’état to have a board member removed was thwarted, and she was shown to be a liar in her “He called me fat!” idiot performance at the RCS High School, she’s apparently bound and determined to hurt someone before she leaves, and she apparently doesn’t care who it is! She’s even enlisted her father as a willing, albeit a somewhat addled henchman! Now, is this O’Connor charactr the kind of person you want teaching your children? She claims to be a teacher! (We exposed the misrepresentation the “Since I’m a teacher…” statement! She is not teaching anywhere; she is not a teacher.)

It seems that certain of the RCS board of education members are not above treachery to accomplish their evil, and are not above taking advantage of the corruption of the Coeymanazis in the Coeymans Police Department, either.

You have the facts, some of you provided those facts to us, we published them. What are you doing about it? James Latter, Gerald Deluca, Matt Miller (self-proclaimed atheist teacher at the RCS High School and president of the teachers union), Josephine O’Connor, the Pieter B. Coeymans PTO members (RJ DEsposito, Marlene McTigue, Sarah Berchtold Engel, Donna Leput Hommel) who ban parents from their official PTO site, allegedly retaliate against children, and advocate a policy of punishing Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk businesses who don’t support their political agendas (see our report We Asked…You Responded: Thank You!),

How is it that you can’t get the Coeymans Police to investigate a real crime where there is real evidence and real damage but they will respond to a fabricated charge where are no witnesses and no proof,  a he-said-he-said situation, and no probable cause! Why? It’s called retaliation, my friends! Random shots in the dark. They gotta hurt someone, anyone, and they don’t care whom! Sound familiar?

Stay tuned for Part II of this report…we’ll publish details but we need first to obtain the documents.

P.s. If anyone has any information on who owns the Coeymans Police Department, we would like to know that information. The Coeymans Town Administration simply answers “It’s part of the town corporation.”  Some residents don’t believe it’s a town department and may have been sold to a private company…that’s simply a rumor but wouldn’t you think that the Town of Coeymans would know?  And be prepared to answer with a simple Yes or No? Maybe if enough residents ask the question, they might remember Who Owns the Coeymans Police Department?

Trailer Trash In A Double-Wide

Somehow It Seems Appropriate That the Coeymans Town Administration and Police Department Should be Housed in What Appears to Be A Converted Cargo Container or An Oversized Double-Wide Trailer

Town Of Coeymans
Town Hall

It’s also not surprising that search as I may, I just can’t find a photo or an image of the Coeymans Town Trailer? Can it be that it’s such a gem of the Hudson Valley, such an Objet d’Art that they need to keep it a secret?

Or is it, more accurately, because it’s such a den of corruption and iniquity that only those poor bastards unfortunate enough to have to appear there and be humiliated by the ignorant but arrogant town justices, an ex-cop and a former cafeteria manager, or abused by the hirelings of Coeyman’s police department chief Gregory Darlington and his troupe of  sadist pervert investigators and Albany PD rejects (McKenna and Johnson, included). I’d go for this latter option.

Moreover, it’s really unfair to even use the term “trailer trash” when discussing the town hall thugs. Trash they are but it’s doing a terrible injustice to those poor persons whom the elite disparagingly call “trailer trash.” There’s plenty of so-call “trailer trash” who would put the community élite to abject shame in terms of morality, virtues, values, and ethics. So, understand that I am using the term “trailer trash” in it’s most literal form, not in the manner that the hypocrites might use it to disparage persons less fortunate than themselves.

Now That I Have Your Undivided Attention…

That may at first blush sound pretty uncharitable and it probably is if you don’t think about it. But that’s the problem: You simply don’t THINK about things; more accurately, you don’t REFLECT on things, and you really ought to.

It’s only natural… that when someone comes and stirs up the scum in your pool you’re going to get pissed because the scum is stirred up, not because you were negligent and didn’t do what was necessary, the work, to keep it clean. Same thing for your community.

It’s only natural…that when you find that someone is pointing out your fat ass, and mentioning that it means trouble for your overall health that you become indignant at being called “fat,” and curse the person for the insult. But you know you’re fat and you know you eat unhealthfully and you know you don’t exercise enough but still, he called you “fat.” Same thing for your community, you know what’s wrong but you decide to live with it, deny it, work around it, and then you’re pissed because someone tells you something’s wrong and that you can fix it…if you care to.

It’s only natural… that you should all rise up and complain: “All teachers aren’t greedy!” Or “All teachers aren’t bullies, there are some very good ones.” You cry this out but you don’t also take into consideration that teachers, police, doctors, judges, men and women elected to public office are all in a special position in society; they want special respect but in return society holds them to a higher standard. Either they tow the mark or they go.

You want to wear crown? Well…

These privileged statuses also want to do their own dirty laundry, take care of their own. And so, when it becomes public that there are bad apples in the barrel, it becomes the task of the good apples to clean up the bad ones…or they can be included in the bad bushel, too. You want to wear the crown and wield the authority, enjoy the perks, do the dirty work guys and gals; clean up your litter boxes.

Find’em and Fix’em

It’s only natural….that because it was YOU who elected them to their privileged statuses that you will get pissed and want to kill the messenger when it becomes obvious that you or those to whom you have delegated your decision-making authority have put jerks in those power positions. But rather than kill the messenger, why don’t you bite the bullet and lay down the rules for the perps and pervs; you put them where they are and you can kick them out. Why do you let yourselves be silenced by those at the head table? Remind them that they are public servants, not tyrants!

Caught cookie-handed!

So you’ve been caught with your hand in the cookie jar?  It’s really humiliating for the crook to be found out and actually be called a crook. And it’s those types that get the angriest and the most vindictive when found out. Rather than ask forgiveness, seek reconciliation and change their ways (turn around), they retaliate. Same thing in the community: You call the crook a crook and he lashes out at everyone within reach. Low self-esteem is a very volatile condition and that’s what makes bullies, student bullies, street bullies, teacher bullies, cop bullies. But if the community were to have done its duty and if the community were to be a moral example and conduct its business ethically, Guess what!? Most of these uncomfortable situations could and would have been avoided.

Morality is a question of character; ethics is a question of what you do. If you are a liar or a cheat, that is immoral, it is a question of character: your character is who you are. Character doesn’t happen overnight, my friends, it starts as behavior that becomes habit that becomes character, the person. It is your character that governs what you do, when you do it, and why you do it. So, if your character that of a liar or a cheat, your ethics is that of lying and cheating. Your character is you; your ‘you’ doesn’t change unless you truly do something about it.

We can only hope that more Laszlo Polyaks, more Donna Pasquinis, more Ann Marie Vadneys, more Jerry Bogardis, more Pam Powells come forward and speak out like those citizen residents do on a consistent basis. Only then will this community be able to rid itself of the tyrany of the Jerry Delucas, the Gregory Darlingtons, the Donna Hommels, the McTigues, the Matt Millers, the Bartletts, the James Latters, the Josephine O’Connors. Only when the community spirited among you become the role models can you take back control of your lives, property, children; the fearful and anxious majority in this community must shake off the fear and anxiety and return to controlling your lives and your destinies.

Please don’t misunderstand what I am teaching here. I’m not calling for lynch mobs, for banning, exiling, or ostracizing anyone but what I am preaching is that some really tough love might be in order for you to forgive, not forget, and to reconcile or not to reconcile with those individuals who have blackened and darkened this community and kept you silent all these years. It’s time to call out the bullies and to discipline them; its time for fair play, justice and fairness. It’s time to put them outside the community and allow them back into the community only after their moral and ethical lesions have been cleansed and are no longer a threat of infection to the rest of us.

It’s time to teach–not just talk about–the lost values of honesty, integrity, charity, simplicity, respect, humility, and generosity, teach those values to the children you all claim to love and cherish; why then do you expose them to indoctrination, propaganda, and indecent role models? They’re your flesh and blood; you have to fill them with morality, good ethics, and love. Smiles covering fear and anxiety just won’t work; nor will convincing them that sacrifice is a bad thing. Teach them good judgment not simply judgment.

Do A Family Virtue Pick!

Listening and watching the videos of public meetings you hear trembling voices, high-pitched tension, you see downcast eyes, suspicious, defensive  body language. People these are not the signs of a happy hobbit community; these are signs you’d expect to see in a concentration camp! Look at yourselves!

When self-interest and self-preservation lock horns and complacency becomes the only coping strategy, there’s no compelling religious, spiritual, civic alternative–community evaporates and each one of you becomes an island with only the delusion of freedom in community.

We are going to give the RCS Central School District a bit of  a respite for the time being; we are going to give the community the opportunity to step up to the plate and to help itself, to file their complaints with the New York State Education Department, the Office of the Attorney General, and other authorities,  and give those authorities some time to show their colors and to do their jobs,  investigate, audit, discipline. There are fish to fry in the town hall and in the police department; we’ll busy ourselves with them in the next several weeks. Stay tuned!

Gee! Was it something I said?

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

 The Times Union, Including Its Blogs, Continues to be the Scatological Source in the Capital Region. It’s now the home to about 15-20 Sadomasochists Who Banter and Batter Each Other in About 105 Lunatic Comments.

And You Do, Times Union!

The majority of the Times Useless RCS School Budget blog appear to be schizophrenics, each part of their schizoid brains using a different pseudonum and talking to the other part; they’re literally talking to the voices in their heads. And what’s even more hilarious is that these same looney toons have assumed oxymoronic names like “Sanity,” “Positivity,” and “RCSLady.” It’s a really popular blog (NOT!)and they have all of about 100 comments since May 2nd!  Being a care-provider by nature and training, I tried to engage them in conversation but the Times Useless blog moderator keeps deleting my comments. Was it something I said? Should I feel hurt about this? Here’s my most recent comment that, like the others (see my article: Times Union Doesn’t Like My Comments…) it disappeared while in moderation:

Let’s do some math. OK? There are about 12-15 commentors on this [the Times Useless] blog; some of you with multiple handles to make the impression that there are more of you. We’ve seen it all before; that lunatic Joan Ross in New Baltimore has found a new sandbox to litter in, and that psycho-delinquent-lurker comment-troll Tim Houghtaling (he’s still ignoring the warnings) does the same thing on the Smalbany blog. The Smalbany blog has almost 21,000 readers in about 1-1/2 months. We’d say that that’s not all that paltry for a blog of very local intererst, wouldn’t you? And the comments are all very positive; sure there are a few negatives but this blog seems to have the monopoly on bellyaching and negativity. Mostly because it’s all unsubstantiated gossip and rumor, something that would be unconditionally disallowed on the Smalbany blog. Most of you would have been banned long ago because you don’t make any sense! All speculation, accusation, rumor-mongering. At least most of the Smalbany blog people use their own names!

When you can’t handle abstracts and you are confused by the concepts, the ignorant automatically attack the person–ad hominem is what it’s called–it’s the lowest form of debate, and that’s what’s going on here. You’re not functioning with intellect, your flooding each other with infantile emotions. Grow up! Grow a pair! Wake up or shut up! Deal with the facts; offer some documentation, cite some sources (besides your lunatic pen pals). If you’re so worried about who the blogger is and are so concerned about his/her using his/her real name, don’t you think it a bit incredible that you all are doing exactly what you complain the blogger is doing: you’re all hiding behind fake names! Why is that, we wonder? You call the blogger a “coward” but what does that make you?

Furthermore, if you think you have such strong arguments, why don’t you just make a good argument in a comment for the Smalbany blog…not a rant…an intelligent comment. Try using your real name and let some of the 20000+ readers take a stab at it. That’s a challenge, everyone, go for it!

If you don’t have the URL for the blog, here it is: Smalbany.

Write a sensible, cogent, factual comment and handle the feedback. That’s something new for you! Use your real name, for once, and show the blogger that you can put your “principles” where your mouths are. Try it and we’ll hope it becomes habit.

My bet is that you’ll avoid the challenge–especially because the blog is restricted to adults and warns students and minors to leave immediately. I suspect many of you are the RCS students who have been banned from the blog.

Peace!

P.s. The Smalbany blog is really quite well done and well written. Several of the local television anchors have commented positively about it. It counts among its visitors the NYSED, the Albany County DA’s office, the FBI, BOCES, many local residents, and a growing number of international visitors. It’s putting RCS on the map! Isn’t that great, people!

Peace!

We did manage to go to the Times Useless archives and find a group photo of the Times Useless blog commentors. You may recognize one or two of them from the RCS teachers association or the general area.

Times Useless Commentors.
Do you recognize any of them?

Well, there is a positive side to this: At least those crazies have  found a place where they can really feel at home, and the Times Useless has a readership of its own. We can be grateful they’re not here!

James Latter: Why Is He Still On the Board of Education?

If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

In March ’12, A Gang of Coeymanazis Ganged Up on A Sitting Board of Education Member and Demanded His Resignation Because He Was Contesting His Tax Assessments and Because of His Political Leanings. He Was Libeled in the Times Useless, Too!

But nearer and dearer to all hearts, closer to home, we have Mr James Latter and citizen’s demand for his resignation and investigations into his involvement with the shadowy RCS Athletic Association.
Why haven’t they started the investigation?
Why hasn’t Latter resigned?!?!
Why’s Latter still on the RCS Board of Education?!?!

Residents Speak Out!

Citizens Demanded An Investigation.
Where is it?

How Quickly We Forget…Yet in November 2011, a Parent Stood Before the Board and Recited How James Latter, a Sitting RCS CSD Boardmember Had Flagrantly Violated Confidentiality by Distributing a Confidential Communication, Endangering the Parent’s Children. She also reported how James Latter verbally abused a special ed student in front of other students. Her Outrage Was Shared By Several Other Residents who Also Addressed the Board and the Superintendant, Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith, Demanding an Investigation and Latter’s Resignation. No Investigation. Latter’s Still There!

That’s not all! In that same November 1, 2012  RCS CSD Board of Education meeting, other residents took the podium to ask why the RCS Athletic Association could not substantiate its status as a non-profit organization, why the RCS Athletic Association has not filed the required IRS 990 Form disclosures, why the RCS Athletic  Association has been the subject of allegations of misuse of Association funds by Latter to support partisan political activities! Latter is the RCS Athletic Association treasurer and stepson of RCS Sportsman’s Association president, Jeff Stambaugh! Oh those connections! His wife is a teacher and so he’s also part of the notorious teacher’s clique on th RCS board of education!

It’s On the Public Record!

At the November 1, RCS CSD Board of Education meeting, Pam Powell (an RCS parent) states, while qualifying herself as not being related to any board member or any  individuals associated with any organization involved here:

“I am here to make the public aware of some recent activity regarding board member, Mr James Latter…I drafted an e-mail to the board members and to Ms Smith ONLY, and Within 29 minutes of sending the e-mail, I received an e-mail from Bob Doren, subsequently followed by an e-mail from Ron Reese, then from coach Ron Vanderzee…Mr Latter took it upon himself to forward my personal confidential e-mail to all coaches JV and Varsity football as well as to Mr Reese and Mr Bailey. Mr Latter added a title of “FYI.” Mr Latter broke the very same protocol he has consistently preached that others need to follow, and has quickly called for investigations of others he has accused of doing the same. Protocoll and Board of Education rules need to be followed. Mr Later, maybe you should start to practice what you preach!

The speaker continues:

“Because of your breach of protocol last Friday I received a text message from my son at 11:26 a.m. asking me, “What did you do now!” This was exactly 2 hours and 11 miniutes after I sent my first e-mail. How my child…became aware of that situation lies directly in your hands…Mr Latter, FYI is not a “concerned title” My conclusion: Hidden agenda? I asked Mr Latter to resign. He refused…Mr Latter said he had asked others about my children…My husband and I would like to know, Mr Latter, what gives you the right to ask questions about our children? You’re not their teacher, principal, coach or any other person in their school who would have anything to do with their education or sports.”

At a the last board of education meeting,

“It was stated that a certain board member told a special ed child to stop acting like a f—ing retard. I am here to state that that member is Mr Latter! My child is a witness to this event. I wonder if you’re going to deny it now. Will you, call my well-rounded and very respectful child a liar? As I should have asked last year, when it happened, I will not ask now but demand that you resign! As a board member you are to act as a whole and have no inherent powers this doesn’t change when certain organizations are involved [Editor’s Note: Latter is an officer, whether secretary or treasurer, it’s unclear, of the RCS Athletics Association, which should also be investigated! See below.] Again: Practice what you preach!

“In closing, I believe that an investigation should be in order here. The fact is Mr Latter forwarded a confidential e-mail which placed myself and my children at risk of being harassed and treated differently, not to mention speaking to a child on school property in such a manner and in front of other children, one of them being my own child. For the sake of the children and the parents, Mr Latter, one way or the other, you need not to be a board member any longer. I now implore the board to demand he resign.”

James Latter’s Policy

James Latter is still on the RCS CSD board of education. No investigation was done despite these serious concerns. Why is that? Another instance of the teachers’ special interests (latter’s wife is an RCS teacher!) being cultivated on the board. Demand an investigation and boot Latter off the Board; He’s corrupt!

Another speaker, Mr John Allen, took to the podium like a fish to water, very eloquently and very articulately:

“What disturbs me as a citizen and I’d like to know is when an individual contacts the board or the school…, that information should be held in confidence and investigated through appropriate channels; not communicated with the various people that are involved in the sporting events or the other activities until the board itself or the school administration has had an opportunity to investigate and to appropriately respond. I’m more concerned after learning that Mr Latter is associated with members of the auxiliary that supports the various sporting events when that auxiliary has used its not-for-profit funding to actually fund “public education campaigns” and I’m being generous here, during times of election which, as I understand is, under IRS not-for-profit law, is expressly prohibited for a not-for-profit charitable organization to actually use its not-for-profit funding to fund such activities in an election campaign. And to take out a full-page add and other things against certain board members or even supporting other members is contrary to public policy in terms of not-for-profit status. The fact that you’re directly associated, I undertand, relatives are involved in that [Editor’s Note: Latter’s stepfather, Mr Jeff Stambaugh is president of the RCS Sportsman Association.]

Mr Allen continues,

“As I’ve looked at the not-for-profit status I can’t find any registration with the Attorney General’s office, which is required for not-for-profit status for that organization, I can also find no 990s, the tax filings for the last couple of years for that organization which are also required by not-for-profit charter. So I would ask that the board investigate this sports organization. Let’s look and ensure that it’s operating legally, that it’s filled its appropriate 990 returns; those are publicly available online and if they’re not it means that they haven’t been recently filed, and that we look at information specifically about the use of those funds as related to school operations and particularly on board election election returns. I think that’s very disturbing. And so, in light of this new revelation where you’re sharing confidential emails, I think that members of the public have a right to expect that communications to the board are held in confidence until the board as a whole decides to act on them or until the administration takes appropriate action…but certainly children should not be put in jeopardy because of personal or other agendas. And so, like others here,  Mr Latter, I would call for your resignation. I find this totally inappropriate and highly questionable, given the other activities that I’ve outlined.”

It seeems the only confidentiality James Latter respects is the secrecy of the RCS Athletic Association’s finances!

Still no investigation of Latter or of the RCS Athletics Association and its secret operations and finances. When can we expect this investigation, Ms Superintendent Elizabeth Smith, RCS CSD Board of Education. James Latter & Co., so quick to demand resignations of others but when it comes to a teacher-connection, sweep it under the carpet, right? NO! We demand an investigation. NOW!

Ms Donna Pasquini, who we all know shoots straight from the hip with deadly accuracy:

 “I have nothing against the Sports Association..both of my children played sports and I enjoyed it. Honesty, integrity…whatever you want to put forward as standards for the board also includes all these clubs and all the extra activity that goes on in school, and honesty goes a long way. Let’s be honest, let’t tell the whole truth. that if there’s something wrong within, there’s something wrong within. Let’s fix it! And I’m hoping that this board will understand that any protocol that stands for you as board members stands for every one of you…for every organization in the school, every teacher, every principal in the school. Nobody is above the law!

We Agree, Mr Latter, Come Clean; What’s with the Finances and Your Involvement?

At that same meeting, Mary Partidge-Brown says: “This meeting has been kind of a rollercoaster…like so many of these meetings…rehashing the old business and the old frustrations coming up…and trying to get back to the business of education.”

Well, RCS CSD Board of Education, Ms Superintendent Elizabeth Smith: It’s now May 2012, a new school budget has been passed, but old business is still plaguing the RCS community. Where’s the investigation!!!!

Mr George Babcock, another voice of the community:

 “…Mr Latter, maybe now you won’t be so quick to ask for someone’s resignation without a full communication with all your boardmembers, as you ask for of fellow boardmembers. The Sports Association has no reason not to come forward and reveal their finances, if they are aboveboard…And Mr Vanderzee*, Shame on you! If something is unsafe, I shouldn’t be turned on because kids won’t have french fries, YOU! as a coach should know What if? [Editor’s Note: Mr Babcock is referring to the unsafe electrical conditions and fryolator operated in the  (see article:  Fryer-gate heats up: Latter, Traver call for investigation (Daily Mail, October 13, 2011) , and
Sports concession stand closed, igniting controversy (News Herald, September 29,2011) )

*Ed. Note: DumbAss Vanderzee previously took to podium to state that he saw nothing “Political” in the RCS Athletic Association’s flyers and ads reading “Support Your School Budget.” Get these illiterate senile DumbAsses out of the schools! Pleeeeeezzzzz!!!!

 DYes, Mr Babcock, you’re right. If the RCS Sports Association and with James Latter as their treasurer, can produce the defense that at least three residents demanded back in November, they’ll be “aboveboard.” But that’s unlikely.

AND THE TAKEAWAY MESSAGE IS…

But guess what? They can’t play fair because they’re just as corrupt as just about every other organization in Coeymans from the Coeymans Police Department right down to the RCS Athletics Association.

To answer Ms Partridge Brown’s question: the old business and frustrations keep appearing because they are never resolved!

And guess what, the word is: O’Connor (outgoing member), Traver (outgoing member), and others in the teachers association clique are now secretly trying to oust a sitting BoE memberthe teachers on the board lost their majority in the last election and the only way they can keep their majority is to try to get another member removed. Those rats never give it a rest!

Demand this investigation but first get Latter off the Board of Education! He’s a hypocrite and it looks like he’s involved in illegal operations in the RCS Athletic Association!

The next RCS CSD Board of Education Meeting is on May 22nd; Go there, demand James Latter’s resignation! Demand an investigation into the finances and operation of the RCS Athletic Association! Get corruption out of the schools!

The entire November 1, 2011 Board of Education meeting can be viewed at Nov 1/11 BoE. The Latter accusations were also covered in the local press. In the News Herald article (see  After accusing BOE president of protocol breach, Latter accused of the same (News Herald, November 10, 2011)) it seems many Board of Education members called for fact-finding, an investigation, but it seems the ball was dropped again! Of course those close to Latter were of the opinion that the board should get on with business as usual. That’s the problem, isn’t it?  Business as usual! That’s been the problem for decades in the RCS community!

At the next RCS Board of Education  Meeting on May 22nd STAND UP and:

CONTACT! RCS CSD Superintendant Elizabeth Smith at:

RCS CSD District Office
15 Mountain Rd.
Ravena, NY 12143
Phone: 518.756.5200
e-mail: ersmith@rcscsd.org

And the entire RCS CSD Board of Education at
e-mail: BoardMembers@rcscsd.org

and demand an investigation and a public report by the Board of Education and the Superintendant.

For the Sake of Decency and Respect…

For the Sake of Decency and Respect for the Professionals Who, Because of the Misconduct and Egregious Conduct of the Few, Might Feel They Are Included in the Parade of Scoundrels…

We Know Who You Are!
Thank You!

In the heat of the battle and in the distraction of the attacks we sometimes overgeneralize and innocent bystanders and the good get hurt. Collateral damage, if it occurs, is always regrettable.

But, once identified, we have a moral duty and ethical obligation to try to mend the hurt caused to the innocent.

In the past several days we have made some pretty serious accusations against members of  the Coeymans Police Department and mentioned several members of the Department whose names and derelictions have been published. But it’s very important to explicitly state and to publish also that the misconduct and ignorance of the three or four bad apples should not and must not reflect on the whole Department; that would simply be wrong!

To Be Clear: Our remarks on this blog are directed at named individuals for specific misconduct or bad practices and ONLY at those specific  individuals.

There are some very fine law enforcement professionals on the Coeymans law enforcement team and they deserve our complete support and respect. We, I, the Editor, expecially want to aknowledge the Coeymans police officers who are truly good and professional public servants and distinguish them from the rotten apples.

We know who you are and have every respect for you; you have our support and our anger and frustration is not directed at you.

We apologize if we made you feel you were included with the derelicts!

The Truth is:
Most of You Are American Heroes
