Court Update: Joe Tracey Appears in Court

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

Alone, Abandoned, Pitiful!

Abandoned Like An Old Truck Carcass

Josephine O’Connor’s father, Joseph “Joe” Tracey, appeared today in Bethlehem Town Court, before the same judge who arraigned Tracey on May 25, 2012, Judge Mark S. Jordan, Bethlehem Town Justice, and the same judge who imposed the Order of Protection on Tracey, ordering him to stay away from John Vadney and Vadney’s family, and that same court order that Tracey had the Coeymans Police violate, and which Tracey himself violated the very next day.

Say what you will, but it does cut a pitiful picture to have sat with a small contingent of supporters of John Vadney, and to have had to see the scapegoat lumber up to the bench with just his lawyer as support. Even his own daughter, Josephine Tracey-O’Connor, didn’t have the decency to show up to be at her father’s side, the very man who got sucked into defending her idiotic ego. There he was, a hulk of a man looking pretty ragged even in a suit, a big guy, but his sheer size makes his whole story incredible. No Coeymanazies, no daughter, just the scapegoat. It really tugged at the heart strings, even if you are disgusted by the things he’s done and the company he keeps, there was something noble in what he thought he was doing, something even parental. I had to try very hard to keep justice in mind when pastoral compassion was threatening to get the upper hand.

Keeping this relatively short, Tracey’s attorney–you have to wonder who’s paying for her! Do you think Josephine is helping out with the bill? Or the Coeymanazies? Better check the Coeymans Police petty cash, it might come up short this month! Well, Tracey’s attorney stated her own version of the facts, which were naturally very strange, especially so, since Judge Jordan is familiar with the facts of June 25th. Didn’t do much for Tracey, though.

Judge Jordan, listened patiently, asked a couple of questions, and agreed to postpone Tracey’s trial. Judge Jordan also extended the Order of Protection until at least September 18, 2012.

Thank you Judge Jordan!

[Editor’s Note: It was refreshing to observe the Jordan court move through the cases with efficiency, respect, and compassion. Jordan greeted each party with respect, explained to each one appearing before him what the charges meant. Judge Jordan has finesse and people skills. I personally was impressed.]

Harassment Primer: NY Law Is Unconstitutional

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

Disclaimer: While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this publication, it is not intended to provide legal advice as individual situations will differ and should be discussed with an expert and/or an attorney. For specific technical or legal advice on the information provided and related topics, please contact an attorney.

New York criminal law attorney Scott J. Limmer writes “In most prosecutions for aggravated harassment, there are hidden agendas and the charges stem from exaggerations or overblown accounts of what actually happened.”

First Amendment Scholar David L. Hudson Jr. describes a case in which  a man who left profane telephone messages with an assistant district attorney in Nassau County, N.Y.,  and has had his aggravated harassment charges dismissed by a New York court. The judge reasoned that the law was unconstitutional on First Amendment grounds.

Judge Valerie Alexander of the District Court of New York, 1st District, NassauCounty, agreed in her July 25 decision People v. Louis. “A criminal prohibition on communicating in an annoying or alarming way is facially unconstitutional,” she wrote.

“The vagueness and overbreadth of this statute is readily apparent,” she said. “It cries out to be reworked, and sharply limited, to those areas where speech should be circumscribed.” Judge  Alexander said the law was not written with nearly enough precision to accord with basic free-speech principles.

Scott J. Kreppein, a constitutional rights attorney, provides additional insight into the controversial New York law on harassment, and writes: “The laws criminalizing “offenses to public order,” (i.e. the “disturbing the peace” family of crimes such as harassment and loitering), need to be carefully drafted to avoid constitutional issues.  Frequently, the phrase “for no legitimate purpose” is added to these statutes, letting the courts define what constitutes a “legitimate purpose,” so that constitutional issues can be avoided. See People v. Shack, 86 N.Y.2d 529 (1995).

Essentially, as phrased, the law criminalizes being intentionally annoying or causing alarm, for any purpose. In fact, this could describe any other emergency communication or warning, such as reporting a fire or telling someone they need to go to the hospital right away; it could describe almost any argument over the telephone; or it could describe someone engaging in parody or “joking”  that is protected by the First Amendment.

In 2003, the Court of Appeals found this statute unconstitutional. People v. Mangano, 100 N.Y.2d 569, 571 (2003).

In 2008, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York found the current version of the New York harassment law unconstitutional, and found that the City of New York could be civilly liable for enforcing it.   The matter was settled prior to another written decision being issued. Vives v. City of New York, 524 F.3d 346, 357-358 (2d Cir. 2008).

So what exactly is this monster, aggravated harassment? Aggravated harassment in the second degree, a Class A misdemeanor, occurs when a person intentionally acts to harass, threaten, annoy or alarm another person, using a telephone, telegraph, the mail or any form of written communication, including electronic means. Simply making a call, even if no conversation takes place, can constitute aggravated harassment in the second degree. That’s how vague the law is!

Under the laws in the state of New York, you can be charged with harassment for engaging in a course of conduct or committing acts that place a person in reasonable fear of physical injury. This can include intentionally and repeatedly following someone in a public place, and is known as harassment in the first degree. If the harassment escalates, you may find yourself charged with harassment in the second degree, as set forth in Section 240.26 of the New York criminal code.

Generally, a person is guilty of harassment (NY PL 240.30) if and when that person intends to “harass, annoy, threaten or alarm” another individual. Further, this person must then:

  • s/he communicates with the targeted individual by just about any form of communication including, mail, email or telephone in a manner that is likely to annoy or harm that person
  • Or, with the same intent to “harass, annoy, threaten or alarm” an individual, you (2) make a telephone call to that person (regardless of whether you actually have a conversation) without a legitimate purpose for that communication.

You may have noticed that I highlighted a number of key words in the above. So the whole process involves intent to harass, annoy, threaten or alarm, then makes some sort of communication to that person, and that communication is likely to annoy or harm that person, and/or there is no legitimate purpose for the communication.

Even one of the half-witted Coeymans police officers would or should have been able to figure out that there was no harassment in Vadney’s case, even if we don’t consider the blatant violation of the lawful protective order against any further harassment of Vadney or his family directly by Joe Tracey or indirectly by misusing the Coeymans Police.

So, Vadney, having returned Tracey’s call or responded to Joe Tracey’s request for a call-back pretty much eliminates any suspicion that Vadney  intended to harass, threaten, annoy or alarm Tracey, and Vadney would have had to have placed that call for that specific purpose. But that’s not true. Vadney was responding to Tracey’s request to call him! It would be really hard to believe that the Mr Vadney we know would have made any call to intentionally harass Tracey, or anyone else for that matter. But how does returning someone’s call get turned into harassment? Vadney had no idea why he was calling Tracey, except for the fact that Tracey asked Vadney to call him! Sound like a set-up to you?

Joe Tracey doesn’t have the brains to have set this up himself; neither does Josephine O’Connor. So, we ask you, Who do you think might have been involved in the set-up, given the role Dirty-Hands Jerry has been playing in the displays at board of education meetings, Josephine O’Connor’s little performance after the voting with her “He called me fat!” exhibition, the FaceBook publications by O’Connor, Josephine O’Connor’s father’s (Joe Tracey) visit to the business, where he caused a disturbance and made threats, the refusal of the Coeymans Police to take the woman’s complaint, the appearance of two Coeymans police officer’s at Vadney’s home the day after Tracey’s arrest by the Bethlehem police and after the issue of the order of protection by judge Jordan?

In most cases, most instances where the police respond to a complaint of harassment a simple warning to stop and to avoid contact with the other party is sufficient. This raises the question of why the Coeymans police arrested Vadney in the first place, unless there was something else, something more sinister going on in this abuse of police power. Maybe we should ask GeraldDirty-Hands Deluca” about the abuse of police power, the unlawful arrest, and the other irregularites that are conspicuous in this case.

We’d like to know what you think is going on here? What’s your take on this terrible development? Please leave your comment below (if you don’t want your comment published please indicate that it is confidential).

(Editor’s note: Joseph Edward Tracey was arrested by the Bethlehem police because he allegedly as mouthing off to them and became abusive; because of Tracey’s misconduct it was sufficiently obvious that he was nutty enough for a judge to immediately issue and serve Tracey with a protective order to stay away from Vadney. The Coeymans police ignored that order. In addition, the local business woman who Tracey threatened and whose family he threatened, attempted to file a report and a complaint with the Coeymans police but they refused to take the complaint. The very officer who refused to take the womans’s complaint against Tracey was one of the arresting officers who arrested Vadney, Coeymans police officer Kerry Thompson. Is something starting to stink here? Smell anything rotten yet?)

An Open Letter to the Albany County Sheriff and the Albany County DA

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

An Open Letter of Concern and Demand for Investigation

TO:

Mr Daniel P. McCoy
Albany County Executive
112 State Street, Room 200
Albany, NY 12207
Mr Craig D. Apple Sr.
Albany County Sheriff
Albany County Sheriff’s Office
16 Eagle Street
Albany, NY 12207
Mr P. David Soares
Albany County District Attorney
County Judicial Center
6 Lodge Street
Albany, NY 12207

Gentlemen:

It is sometimes remarkable that situations and circumstances that most of us clearly acknowledge as common-knowledge, because of their persistence and perfidiousness, and other situations and circumstances are assumed to be conspicuously demanding of the attention of our elected public officials, assuming that they are even minimally conscious, lucid, and interested.

We naturally do not expect any serious and intelligent human being to rely in major part, much less wholly, on the reporting in the local rags, the Times Union, and other media, such as the local news comedy hours, but we do expect that one of the most effective means of public discourse, the Internet, cannot possibly have failed to capture your attention–especially in view of the fact that we have placed the publications directly under your noses– at least in matters concerning your region of responsibility and your particular and specific offices and operations.

Sadly, we find either that you are ignorant of what is going on right under your noses, or even more sadly, you are uninterested. In either case, please accept this letter as a public wake-up call.

This blog has closely scrutinized the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk central school district and the situation in the town of Coeymans, both in your jurisdictions of Albany County, New York. What this blog, its writers, and its contributors have revealed is scandalous, criminal, and in desperate need of investigation and prosecution. We shall not misuse valuable space in this letter to rehash what has been discussed extensively and in detail in the numerous postings on this blog but we will cite two disturbing situations that require investigation within the purview of the Office of the District Attorney and of the Albany County Sheriff, two eminently important offices on which a great many residents, citizens, and visitors in Albany County depend for their safety and security, physical, psychological, and spiritual.

On the example of the town of Coeymans, this blog has reported numerous instances of apparent corruption in the Coeymans Police Department, managed by one Gerald Darlington. The Coeymans Police Department enjoys an unenviable reputation, and has had the reputation for many years of inefficiency, corruption, retaliation, and conflicts of interest. Nothing has changed but it has become unimaginably worse; it is the duty and obligation of the hierarchy in law enforcement and the executive, under which law enforcement falls in terms of governance, to investigate, audit, correct, and if required, to prosecute in these situations.

But how can the citizens of Coeymans or anywhere else expect or even hope for this necessary clean-up to be in any way successful if the very executive and law enforcement offices, whose mandate it is to investigate and to prosecute, are themselves compromised and tainted?

As mentioned above, the Coeymans Police Department is managed by a so-called chief, Gregory Darlington. The executive law enforcement office in the county, the office of the District Attorney P. David Soares, employs at least two very close relatives of Mr Darlington: Darlington’s wife is secretary to DA P. David Soares, and Darlington’s daughter is a prosecutor in Mr Soares’ office. This begs the question, Mr Soares, of how you can possibly maintain any level of security and confidentiality in your office and, should the occasion arise, how you can ensure that any complaints arriving in your office will receive impartial attention and, if necessary, investigation, when two close relatives of one of the very individuals you are being asked to investigate are in key positions in your office? Such an incredible situation does nothing to inspire confidence in the ethical operations of the Albany County District Attorney’s Office.

Some time ago, during the very vitriolic and savage school budget campaigns that ravaged this community, which continue with vendettas being satisfied and retaliation by those who cannot accept the nature of the community and get on with business, we made clear recommendations, having identified the nepotism, the conflicts of interest, and the corruption rampant in the Coeymans Police Department, that residents who do not feel safe calling the Coeymans Police for assistance, should instead call the Albany County Sheriff or the New York State Police. We published a Complaints Contact Sheet to assist those anxious residents. This lack of confidence in the Coeymans Police Department is longstanding, as is the common-knowledge practice of retaliation and coercion practiced by the Coeymans police officers against residents.

Since our recommendation, we have received disturbing reports from several residents that having called the Albany County Sheriff for assistance, they found that the Albany County Sheriff personnel, instead of responding directly, forwarded to the call without the residents’ knowledge to the Coeymans police, who appeared at the rather surprised residents’ homes and, in one instance, at the RCS High School. Why would the Albany County Sheriff’s department personnel refuse to respond? We may have the answer to this question (see below).

A further disturbing incident occurred last week when a local business owner, a woman, attempted file an harassment complaint with the Coeymans Police Department, and the officer on duty there, one Kerry Thompson, refused to take the complaint. Officer Thompson is married to Gregory Darlington’s sister, and Kerry Thompson is also a law enforcement employee of the Albany County Sheriff. The same questions put to Mr Soares are here put to Mr Apple, Albany County Sheriff: Given this situation in which the Albany County Sheriff is a recourse for residents and citizens fearful of the local Coeymans police, and given the situation that the Albany County Sheriff is necessarily involved in confidential investigations that have been taken out of the hands of the Coeymans Police Department for reasons of retaliation by the Coeymans Police Department, how can the Albany County Sheriff, Mr Apple, ensure that those investigations are secure and confidential and that the interests and privacy of the citizen resident are safeguarded, when you have on your staff an individual, Kerry Thompson, who is so closely associated not only with the Coeymans Police Department as an employee of that department, but also is married to the sister of the Coeymans police chief, Gregory Darlington. How, Mr Apple, can you ensure any security and confidentiality at all under these circumstances? How, Mr Apple, is it that you can reconcile the obvious ethical discrepancies between Kerry Thompson’s employment with the Albany County Sheriff’s department and his intimate association with the corrupt and tainted Coeymans Police Department?

Moreover, we have on this blog reported on the multiple conflicts of interest and have alleged other misconduct of one of the employees on the Coeymans Police Department, one Gerald Deluca. Deluca is intimately involved with a number of individuals and activities in the county and in the community that, under normal circumstances, would raise serious ethical if not legal questions, and would likely lead to at least ethical, if not criminal criminal, investigation of the myriad conflicts of interest. Deluca is employed by a number of special interest and lobbying entities including but not limited to the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, Automotive Recyclers Association of New York (ARANY), the Main Street Small Business Coalition (MSSBC), Deluca Public Affairs, all of which serve to compromise any appearance of impartiality and objectivity in Deluca’s police investigative work at the Coeymans police department. We wonder very seriously how this has for so long, sirs, successfully escaped your attentions, and whether that circumstance was intentional or accidental? We now bring these matters to your attention by way of this blog.

We would like to mention also Deluca’s inappropriate associations with highly politically charged groups in the RCS community and his retaliative conduct in delaying important criminal investigations, one of which after six (6) months delay, had to be turned over by the resident to the County Sheriff’s department, intimidation of political opponents, failure to investigate criminal campaign sign investigations, undue influence and conspiracy with one close friend and board of education associate, Josephine O’Connor, and the conspiratorial arrest and abuse of due process of the RCS board of education president (with the collaboration of Kerry Thompson acting as a Coeymans police officer)!

Naturally, a properly conducted investigation of these circumstance is likely to uncover much, much more by way of impropriety and criminality, not the least in terms of multiple conflicts of interest, corruption, breaches of due process, abuse of police power, and much more in the Coeymans administration. We would expect that a complete audit of law enforcement records and activities, as well as interviewing of those residents and citizens who have served the town of Coeymans, the Coeymans Police Department, and the Coeymans courts with complaints would further serve the purposes of a good faith investigation of the widespread misconduct and corruption in both town governance and in law enforcement in this community. We would also expect that the backgrounds of the current employees of the Coeymans Police Department be carefully scrutinized for prior conduct and convictions that would make them unfit or at least undesirable for law enforcement work.

So, Mr County Executive, Mr District Attorney, and Mr County Sheriff, we hereby serve notice upon you all of our well-founded concern for security and confidentiality in your departments, of our concern for the ability of your offices to operate impartially and objectively, of our concern that your offices are, by virtue of the inappropriate and unethical degrees of relationship between key members of your staff and key persons of interest in the Coeymans Police Department and others in the administration and governance of the town of Coeymans, and demand that you appropriately audit, investigate, and if necessary to prosecute.

We urge, No! we demand that you respond affirmatively to our call for investigations and audit of the Coeymans law enforcement machine, and for correction of these scandalous circumstances of grave concern, and for the prosecution of any criminal conduct found.

For and on behalf of concerned citizen residents,

The Editor

This Is Your Town, Coeymans! Criminals Gone Wild, Part II

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

 I Recently Started A Discussion in  a Chaplains Discussion Group on Forgiveness and Reconciliation, and I’ve Just Reviewed Some of the Discussion From the Participants. So, Forgive Me But I’m Waxing Pastoral, Theological, So-to-Speak.

Criminals Gone Wild, Part II

I’m Sitting Here at My Desk, Thinking About Coeymans, the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk District and Wondering: Does the Place Make the People Evil, Or Do the People Make the Place Evil?

Does the Place Make the People Evil, Or Do the People Make the Place Evil?” That’s the question that is preoccupying me this evening as I read through some legal papers and police reports relating to a recent incident in Coeymans. I also wondered while reading how a country that wants to make same-sex marriages legal and liberalize immigration laws can be so hateful towards its neighbors? There’s something schizoid about the whole thing; it’s really sicko!

It seems the television and local press media have been spoon fed some blood so they’re in a feeding frenzy this evening, as only the media can do, whole facts, half facts, they don’t give a damned. As long as they can beat the others to the punch!

But the question that still comes up, even after I ponder the question of: “Why are they going after the good citizen and not the crooked, corrupt cops? Why are they not going after the deranged, depraved drug addled Neanderthal who actually menaced a lone woman, vomiting profanity and threats to harm her entire family?”

But then that haunting question resurfaces: “Is it the Place that Makes the People Evil, or the People that Make the Place Evil?

On about Thursday, May 24, 2012, Mr Joseph E. TRACEY, the father of RCS board of education member Josephine O’Connor, entered a local business premises and launched into a tirade of obscenities, profanities and threats on the lone woman in the office, who happened to be a local busness woman and the sister of the sitting RCS board of education president. Here we have what is tantamount to Fat Bastard accosting Tinkerbell! That’s a real match, isn’t it?

Do You Recognize This Man?

Well, luckily, the lady’s brother (not John Vadney but another brother) was watching and called on her cell phone to ensure everything was all right and later physically appeared to make certain TRACEY was behaving (he was not); by that time, it appears, the lady had things under control, but TRACEY continued his attacks, now in the presence of not two but three witnesses!

The reason for TRACEY’s appearance was that the BoE president, Mr John Vadney,  allegedly called his daughter, Josephine O’Connor fat.” We reported on the incident on this blog and, it appears, the BoE president did no such thing and there are at least four, FOUR witnesses to testify to that fact. Nevertheless, TRACEY was convinced that someone called his adult married daughter, for quite a number of years estranged from TRACEY and not on friendly terms with him, “fat”  but now all of a sudden he’s being protective (?). Fact is, TRACEY was set up to be a tool and was being used to set up BoE president…something TRACEY doesn’t have the smarts to do alone, having allegedly fried his brain years ago, and only recently on legal prescription meds. Mr Joseph Edward Tracey was being used as a pawn in the depraved games his daughter and her depraved pervert friends are playing; get control of the RCS board of education and its authorities. It’s all about divvying up the $41 million they deceptively got voters to accept in the 2012-13 RCS CSD school budget. The Teachers association/union wants control of all that and without the majority on the Board of Education, they’ll never have full control. So, it’s obvious, with the help of Gerald “Jerry” Deluca on the Coeymans Police Department and his bully cops–Deluca is very good friends with Josephine O’Connor–they could make a frame-up look legit but only with a Dumbo, a fall guy. Enter Joseph Edward TRACEY. After all, TRACEY has a “reputation,” a big mouth, and a brain that makes a chicken’s look like Einstein’s, and is expendible. Right, Josephine?

TRACEY BEEN BAD!
TRACEY BEEN HAD!

So TRACEY makes his appearance, does his thing, and leaves promising to call the board president, which, as we see, he does on Friday, May 25, 2012. (It should be noted here for completeness that the woman initially accosted by TRACEY feared for her own safety and that of her family and attempted to file a complaint with Officer Thompson of the Coeymans Police, but Coeymans Officer Kerry Thompson, also a Lieutenant with the Albany County Sheriff and married to Darlington’s Sister refused to take the complaint!  Wonder why?)

On informatin and belief TRACEY called the president of the board at his home on Friday evening, May 25, 2012, and left a voicemail message at about 4:30 p.m.; Mr Vadney returned TRACEY’s call that evening at about 8:30 p.m.  TRACEY again alleged that Mr Vadney called his daughter “fat,” which Mr Vadney denied. TRACEY again  launched into a tirade of profanity and obscenities, threatening to harm Mr Vadney. Mr Vadney terminated the call and immediately reported the incident to the Bethlehem police. The Bethlehem police contacted TRACEY, located him at his home, arrested him, transported him to the station. The honorable Jordon, Bethlehem town justice, arraigned TRACEY on misdemeanor aggravated harassment, and ordered him to appear in court at a later date. Judge Jordon also issued an order of protection in favor of Mr Vadney, prohibiting Tracey from contacting Mr Vadney.

Were the Coeymans Police actually violating the Order of Protection issued by Judge Jordon? We think YES! They were actually acting after the Judge issued the Order of Protection and on the express behalf of Joe TRACEY to continue TRACEY’s intimidation and threats when Joe TRACEY was prohibited from contacting Mr Vadney! Joe TRACEY was arrested and arrested for good cause; he couldn’t accept that and made good his threats against Mr Vadney, this time with the help of the Coeymanazis, the Coeymans Police, who ignored the Judge’s order and continued to harass and intimidate Mr Vadney, even sham arresting him! Of course the general public and the media missed the finer points of this criminal activity but you now know! Fancy that! The Coeymans Police doing something illegal…AGAIN!

Apparently, after TRACEY’s arrest, TRACEY filed a complaint with Coeymans police alleging that Mr Vadney threatend TRACEY with bodily harm, and that he stated “I know where you live” and “You’d better watch out.” TRACEY states that he was “alarmed” by these threats. Our question, naturally is: TRACEY, if you were so alarmed by these alleged words, Why didn’t you report them immediately or when you were arrested? There’s no mention of that in the police reports. Why did you wait til the next day, after you had been arrested and an order of protection issued against you?

Well, at about 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 26, 2012, the Coeymans police arrive at the home of sitting RCS board of education president, John Vadney, and arrest him on the charge of Guess what? Aggravated harrassment.

Now, who’s our little sock-puppet, Officer Crosier?

But reading the Coeymans police report, we note that it is not Joseph Edward TRACEY who is complainant, but Officer D.M. Crosier shield No. 128, of the Coeymans Police Department. Our first impression is that this Crosier character is either ignorant or totally incompetent ,or more probably still, just a sockpuppet following orders. (S)he was not present when the alleged threats were made, was (s)he? Neither is the complaint/report signed by TRACEY. Nor is there a jurat or sworn deposition by TRACEY in support of the complaint–at least not in the report we have. Mr Vadney was not mirandized upon his arrest and he was not arraigned before a judge at the time of being charged. All of these irregularities–did we expect different in Coeymans–are glaring in terms of law enforcement! What does this spell out for us:

RETALIATION! PERJURY! CONSPIRACY! SET-UP! DUH! NO-BRAINER, PEOPLE!

This entire series of events perfectly illustrates what we have been reporting and saying all along! The players are all the same:  The Coeymans Police Department (representing Gerald “Jerry” Deluca and the Coeymanazis), Josephine O’Connor and dear ole demented Dad  (representing the teachers union members on the RCS board of education), and the residents and people of the RCS community and central school district (represented by Mr John Vadney).

As for the circumstances at large in the RCS community and in the schools in the RCS central school district, all you have to do is page through this blog to get a good idea of what that’s all about. I won’t waste space here repeating it all.

When interpreting the facts, we look at the events, the circumstances, the individuals involved. Here we have the image of Josephine O’Connor, an adult married woman, calling herself inaccurately a teacher (making her a liar), alleging that the president of the RCS board of education called her “fat,” and, in the presence of voters waiting to hear the results of the presumably  fraudulent budget vote, in her own words published on FaceBook, Josephine O’Connor writes:

“In that hot hallway full of people waiting for election results, I raised my voice and said “hey everyone: Member of the Board X just said I look like I put on weight, anyone else want to chime in?” I yelled the insult up and down the hallway.” (See our article: Josephine O’Connor: A Role Model of Maturity and Mental Stability…NOT!)

And then, not to let the matter rest, and to use it to the max for her depraved and lunatic purposes, she enlists her burnt-out father as her Dumbo! and sets out with the collusion of the Coeymans Police (Deluca, her “good friend”) to frame Mr Vadney! This woman claims to be a teacher; is that the sort of person you want in your school?

Our advice: Get over it Josephine! Get some counseling, some therapy! But stay away from the children!!!! You’re really BAD news!

Then we have that poor bastid Joseph Edward TRACEY, who fathered our lunatic wannabe teacher, Josephine O’Connor, who on information and belief has quite a history of his own, which explains much of his behavior, and who, for whatever reason, gets sucked into this undercurrent by his newly re-found Josephine–and gets his ass arrested for his idiotic behavior and then, stupidly, perjurs himself in retaliation!

As for the corrupt and tainted thugs at the Coeymans Police Department, they are beyond any criticism we could unleash on them here. They are thugs, bullies, Coeymanazis; what can you expect with the leaders they have and the types of recruits they bring in: rejects. Unfortunately, the good apples in the barrel have to carry the stench of their rotten colleagues. 

Mr John Vadney
Gold Star Rated

As for Mr Vadney: He was elected on his merits. He’s a hard-working family man, he and his wife have two beautiful children and have provided wonderfully for them. His children are smart, talented, respectful, handsome. He is honest, honorable, and respectful. Godfearing, moral, ethical  and good. Having observed him many times in the videotapes of the RCS board of education meetings, he is always professional, cheerful, and respectful. Mr Vadney and his family are hospitable and generous; their home and table are open to all. It’s a family tradition.  Mr Vadney is a good listener and mediator; he treats everyone with respect. Mr Vadney has worked long and hard for the RCS central school district and has made many personal sacrifices for the sake of the district, its students and residents. It’s an abomnation what the sicko’s in this community have done to them! There’s a special p;lace in hell for those asocial perverts and they’ll reap the rewards of their evildoings none to soon! A curse be upon them and those who support them! Amen!  The man described by the LIARS Joseph Edward TRACEY and his estranged, strange adult daughter, Josephine O’CONNOR is a fiction, a fabrication of their sick minds. Those who know Mr Vadney and work with him can confirm the observation that he is good, honorable, and a victim of the perverts; you can judge for yourself: Watch the tapes, they’re available on the RCS board of education website.

One final word on the media: This blog, to its credit, deals in facts. We could have commented on these events sooner but we waited until we had all of the reports and could quote facts. Unfortunately, that is not the case for Channel 6 News and Channel 10 News; they hadn’t even seen the police reports and were hounding Mr Vadney and his neighbors. Channel 6 News and Channel 10 News had the opportunity to establish credibility but BLEW IT! Their editors have to answer for that; hopefully their shareholders and their advertisers will take those faux pas and the ignorance in consideration. Don’t be mistaken, we’ll make sure they know about it! Sorry stupids…you made your beds, now sleeep in them!

Is this Dayelin Roman?

Of course, the Times Useless and the sleeze reporter Dayelin Roman were on the phone trying to scrape up some of the pooled blood before it could even clot! Dayelin Roman, star pornographic reporter! Makes you wonder who’s doing what for her, she’s so hot on destroying the decent people in Coeymans and ignores the crooks and criminals! What’s up, Day’, you and Jerry gettin’ kinda “close?”  Who’s leaking information to you from  Coeymans (that’s an old problem, common knowledge that someone in the Coeymans P.D. leaks information)? Or do you suck up anything put in front of you?

But credit where credit is due: At least Channel 13, I’m told, was reasonably balanced in its reporting and at least gave both sides of the story. Earlier today, WNYT Channel 13 spent more than 51 minutes on this blog. Eric Hoppel was notified of the problems in Coeymans some time ago. Do you think WNYT or Hoppel will get to the bottom of the real problems in Coeymans, like Deluca and the Coeymanazis? Time will tell.

People of Ravena, Coeymans, Selkirk! How can you have the stomach to let this go on any longer?

Enough said on that subject. The Law and Justice will have the last word! But that question is still bothering me:

“Is it the Place that Makes the People Evil, or Is it the People that Make the Place Evil?

The Editor

A Couple of Afterthoughts…

“It’s for the kids!”

Remember that slogan abused by the Yes! people during the budget battle. Wielded so many times by teachers and teacher minions to tug at your heart strings and to get you to give them their money?  Well, apparently Josephine O’Connor and Joe TRACEY “did it all for the kids.” Was it for the kids that Mr Vadney’s children had to hear Joe TRACEY’s filth coming over the speaker phone? Was it for the kids that Mr Vadney’s children had to witness their innocent father arrested and carted off like the Coemanazi criminals instigating the fraud? Was it for the kids that they now have to face their schoolmates and bear the stigma of what Josephine O’Connor, Joe TRACEY, and the Coeymanazis conjured up? Yeah! It’s for the the kids…and I just saw a pig (I won’t mention any names) fly by my window!We can only speculate why this evil has been done…

But here are some ideas:

  • The Coeymanazis are lashing out wildly at anything or anyone that is associated, in reality or only in their small minds, with this blog. They think they know who the blogger is and will do anything to “punish” her/him or anyone associated with him/her. They seem to see her/him everywhere (see our article Matt Miller: “I Seen The BLOGGER!!!!” — his grammar, not ours!). And have even used the school children to do their dirty work (see Schools, Superintendent:  No Response to Allegations of Bullying… and Stop the Presses…EXTRA! Bully Gangs at RCS).
  • The word is that some members of the RCS board of education were going to vote to deny RCS teachers association/union president Matt Miller (the self-professed atheist teacher) the $10K he’s receiving on top of his teacher salary (he has a reduced teaching load of 2 periods a day so that he can do his union finagling at the school, and then they pay him an additional stipend of $10K to act as energy watchdog at the school!). Is it worth $10K to frame an innocent person? You betcha it is in Coeymans. The solution: Do anything to prevent the vote! Create a distraction…ANYTHING!
  • It could be revenge for the fact that so many residents in the RCS central school district saw and reported numerous irregularities leading up to and in the May 15 budget voting and the election of board of education members. Revenge for the fact that the teacher’s lost their majority on the board so some non-supporters had to go! They had already tried before and failed. It looks like they really go desperate.
  • And then there’s Josephine O’Connor. She appears to have anger and self-esteem issues that probably go way back in her personal history. A lot of trauma there. Maybe it was one of the many voices in her head that called her fat and she tried to pin reality on it by lashing out at someone in the crowd, maybe a father figure? Maybe the father figure represented in the president of the RCS board of education? It really makes no difference which voice it was she heard. What does matter is that she’s held on to the thought for so long and has actually kept the rage in her until she could vent it. Now that in itself is nutz! Josephine O’Connor has some serious psychological issues, it seems, and she’s not someone I’d want around my kids…in school or anywhere!

 Well, those are the facts; obviously nothing seems to change in the Coeymans freak show.

Special Notice: We make every effort to be truthful, complete, fair, and balanced on this blog; therefore, if you see anything that you know to be false or incorrect, or if you have additional information to clarify any issue, please let us know by e-mailing your information or by leaving a comment.

This Is Your Town, Coeymans! Do you like it?

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

Sometimes You Just Need To Sit Down and Write Things Out to Get a Real Feel for What’s Going On Around You. We Did And Here’s What We Came Up With…

Coeymans at Work

For about two months now we’ve been reporting on what’s going on right under your noses. It’s all stuff that you are not hearing about in the newspapers, the News Herald, the Daily Mail, the Times Union, who should be reporting and investigating this scandalous situation. We’ve encouraged you to complain, to fight back, to call the New York State Education Department, the FBI, the County Sheriff, and others. To stand up, speak out, fight back, take back your town, and peace of mind. Well, here are some thoughts and facts for you to chew on and to think about:

FACTS AND NOTES

See our accompanying letter,  An Open Letter to the Albany County Sheriff and the Albany County DA.

  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca is employed by the Town of Coeymans in the Coeymans Police Department
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca works very intimately with Gregory Darlington (“manager” of the Coeymans Police Department)
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca involved with Yes! side in budget debates (see our article, Secret Meetings on Budget at Public School?)
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca involved with teachers side on BoE
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca has conspicuous influence with Coeymans Police Department and with its members
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca is a former member of the RCS board of education and served as president for a time. After the scandal of his adulterous affair with his now partner Cathy (Long) Deluca, he was not re-elected and his partner, Cathy (Long) Deluca, lost her bid for relection. The Deluca legacy to the RCS central school district was the money-pit swimming pool (which was slipped in on the residents in the budget after failing to pass several times; a Deluca sneak job).
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca and the other loser candidates (most of his public following is made up of people who ran for office but lost) making up his entourage has been on a merciless campaign of misinformation and abuse of the present non-teacher supporters on the RCS board of education. Delucal heads the so-called Coemanazis [the Losers Club].
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca is a so-called police investigator and investigates local requests for law enforcement assistance (which raises many questions, considering he receives a check from the State of New York, and has quite a number of other jobs, some raising questions of conflict of interest and worse. See below for more details. And see our article on this blog,  Can You Explain This, Jerry?) There is apparently considerable evidence for Deluca’s involvement in criminal retaliation and coercion. (The Albany County Sheriff’s Department finall got involved and kicked some Coeymans ass; the investigation is now underway. Lost again, Jerry!)
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca directly involved in retaliation and coercion, but has not yet been charged!
  • Gregory Darlington (“manager” of the Coeymans Police Department) apparently works for Gerald “Jerry” Deluca, which may explain why the rogue Jerry Deluca and his accomplices has free hand in Coeymans.
  • Gregory Darlington, before he was hired to the Coeymans Police Department, was a garbage collector! He’s still collecting garbage and putting it in police uniforms. Most of the derelicts and refuse that was thrown off the Coeymans P.D. by former chief Scott Giroux, including on information and belief, Gerald “Jerry” Deluca and others, were hired back by Darlington!
  • Ryan Johnson, another rogue at the Coeymans Police Department, was previously in the military and deployed to the Mid East. He never adapted to civilian law enforcement and still thinks he’s in the military. Heavy handed, abusive. But on information and belief he was charged at least 4 times for perjury. Has this man ever undergone psychological evaluation for fitness to be in law enforcement, we wonder? Could he have been adversely affected by his military experiences?
  • Officer Kerry Thompson of the Coeymans Police Department is married to Darlington’s sister; this is the same Officer Thompson who, in retaliation, refused to take a woman’s harassment complaint against Joseph Edward Tracey, father of Deluca’s close friend and board of education member, Josephine O’Connor! Thompson is also with the Albany County Sheriff’s Department. Cozy, eh?
  • Gregory Teresi, a lawyer who is serving as both Village of Ravena and Town of Coeymans attorney, is the son of the notoriously infamous Joseph Teresi (NYS Supreme Court, Albany County). Read more about good ol’ dad’s escapades at Teresi: Part I. Fear the worst: Like father, like son! A dynasty of corruption!
  • The Coeymans town justice, George Dardiani, violated just about every section of the New York State Rules of Judicial Conduct, and broadcasted his bias and prejudice by publically displaying his political support for the Yes! side in the 2012-13 budget battle by displaying a Vote Yes! (ít’s for the kids) sign on his front lawn!  A complaint has been filed.
  • Between the activities of Gerald “Jerry” Deluca and Gregory Darlington (“manager” of the Coeymans Police Department) in the budget controversy and the attempts to remove board of education members tainted and compromised Coeymans Police Department, and the public announcement of bias and prejudice by a judge on the Coeymans town court (George Dardiani), there cannot be any reasonable expectation whatsoever of justice in the town of Coeymans (no convicting any No! sign vandals or anyone involved in criminal activity against anyone openly opposing the budget or the teachers union can continue their criminal activities in Coeymans with no fear of apprehension!)
  • Because of the collaboration and conspiracy between members of the Coeymans Police Department and the Ravena village and Coeymans town court, and the seeding of the Coeymans Police Department with known criminals and delinquents (McKenna, Johnson) protecting them on the Coeymans Police Department who, because of the favors and protection and support they are receiving from key members in the Coeymans Police Department, and the support received from the Ravena village and Coeymans town court, are key instruments in the campaign of retaliation and coercion by the Coeymans Police Department and abetted by the Ravena village and the Coeymans town court. (See our article on this blog, Corrupt Coeymans Police Effectiveness Compromised!!!)
  • The Coeymans Town Court with it’s tainted and corrupt justice George Dardiani (former cafeteria manager, completely ga-ga about the Rules of Judicial Conduct), and the tainted and corrupt Ravena village court with its jugdge Harold Warner (ex-cop, still-cop-at-heart so-called judge, TAINTED & COMPROMISED); Crandell, a Town of Coeymans town justice is still under scrutiny and had better behave for now, unless something comes up to show he’s in bed with the rest! (In fact, George Dardiani did not recuse himself from the Krzykowski actions, despite the fact that Dardiani was in bed with Deluca and Co. The fact that Dardiani issued a bench arrest warrant for a local resident but the resident was never served with the summons in the first place! (Despite repeated requests by the resident, the Coeymans court was unable to come up with the original summons! Isn’t that odd?) Odd that this should be a controversial board of education member and a local businessperson, who was cited by the DEC! That is “odd,” isn’t it, Jerry? You want to tell us something, Jerry?)
  • Deluca is closely involved with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the DEC, activities and has been working with them (How? He has no background in environment! He’s supposed to be working as a police investigator since about 1982!) and lists himself as “executive director” of a special interest automotive scrap organization called ARANYAutomotive Recyclers of New York–(Now, how did he qualify for that one?). He’s also running Deluca Public Affairs (no not his usual affairs) and an entity called the Main Street Small Business Corporation. Do you wonder why local business people are experiencing so many problems with the DEC, and why local scrapyard operators and others are having problems with the DEC? Shouldn’t we ask Gerald “Jerry” Deluca about his relationships with the DEC and ARANY why there are so many problems? (O.K., Jerry, we’re asking now!) (See our article on this blog, Can You Explain This, Jerry?)
  • Complaints about Coeymans Police Department likely to be handled by AlbanyCountyD.A. David Soares’ office…but Darlington’s wife works there…Gregory Darlington’s wife works forAlbany County D.A. as secretary to Soares!
  • If that isn’t enough for you try this on for size: Coeymans town justice Harold Warner’s daughter also works in Soares’ office! Remember Hal Warner, the ex-cop playing at town justice–and if you think teachers stick together like shite to a show, you don’t don’t know how tight cops are…or how close they are to the DA’s office! Does it get any more incestuous?!?
  • Albany County D.A. David Soares’ office is compromised and tainted by conflict of interest between the best interests of the public and gatekeeper Mrs Darlington; what does that mean when disciplining Gerald “Jerry” Deluca, Gregory Darlington, and the Coeymans P.D.
  • Investigations of criminal activity in Coeymans by Coeymans Police Department compromised by the fact of political involvements of Gerald “Jerry” Deluca, Gregory Darlington (“manager” of the Coeymans Police Department) (e.g. harassment and intimidation of local business owners, harassment and intimidations of board of education members and their families, retaliation and coercion, non-investigation of sign vandalism to No! vote signs)
  • Investigations of criminal activity in Coeymans by Coeymans Police Department compromised by the fact of Gerald “Jerry” Deluca’s involvement with teachers and support of Yes! group…(e.g. arrest of BoE president connected with father of BoE member falsely claiming an abusive phone call; Coeymans police “chief” Darlington can’t seem to get the incident report together. Imagine that!)
  • Gerald “Jerry” Deluca’s and Coeyman’s P.D. involvement in retaliation against BoE members and others to coerce silence or collaboration (e.g. violation of the provisions of the Americans With Disabilities Act-ADA,  arrest of BoE president; various delaying tactics in police investigations; harassment and intimidation of residents (numerous complaints of police misconduct; we have at least four (4) formal complaints in our possession!))
  • Questionable integrity of Coeymans Police Department members (e.g. Johnson, Gerald “Jerry” Deluca, Gregory Darlington (“manager” of the Coeymans Police Department), Laviano, and others). Are they faithfully and impartially serving and protecting YOU?
  • Attempts by Gerald “Jerry” and Cathy (Long) Deluca, David and Amy Bartlett, Donna Leput Hommel, Josephine O’connor, James Latter, and others to unsuccessfully remove RCS board of education members leads to secret meetings and attempts to “discipline or remove” board members. (Search our blog for articles on any of these perps and read about their mischiefmaking!) (See our articles on this blog, Can You Explain This, Jerry?, James Latter: Why Is He Still On the Board of Education?, We Asked…You Responded: Thank You!, Josephine O’Connor: A Role Model of Maturity and Mental Stability…NOT!)
  • Loss of majority of teachers’ supporters on RCS CSD board of education continues with heightened clear and palpable increase in clandestine retaliation and coercion methods to achieve same purpose of removing non-teacher supporters from the RCS board of education by other methods: conspiracy and retaliation (the most conspicuous and underhanded conspiracy was to use Joe TRACEY (father of board of education member Josephine O’Connor) to falsely accuse the BoE president of misconduct, resulting in the BoE president’s arrest, and then the retaliatory tactics of the Coeymans Police Department in refusing to promptly provide a copy of the police report on the arrest)
  • The Coeymans Police Department is clearly conspiring with certain elements of the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk district, including certain members of the current board of education, unsuccessful bidders for seats on the board of education, elements supporting certain controversial and political agendas in the district, most notably the 2012-13 RCS school budget in support of certain special interest groups, notably the teachers association, and teacher-related members of the BoE
  • The Coeymans Police Department is retaliating against family members of the feared blogger in the idiotic hope that reports such as this one will stop and the blogger will disappear (Sorry, Jerry, it’s not going to happen!)
  • And not the least of the corrupt and unlawful practices in the RCS district, do we really have to remind any of you of the gross and scandalous irregularities in the recent voting? If we do, please visit our article More Irregularities in the Voting? The RCS Central School District was served with papers on May 29th demaning an investigation; we’re waiting to see where the NYSED is going to go with all of this!

Time to Start Writing–Right NOW!

So, now that you have some facts to fill in any blanks, don’t you think it’s time to start using the Complaints Contact Sheet we provided (you can view or download the sheef from the blog article, Retaliation Is A CRIME! Let’s Go After the Criminals!)? Start sending letters, e-mails, complaint forms, demands to everyone and anyone on or off the list! Get those criminal bastids out of government, investicated, in jail where they belong. They’re crooks and criminals and shouldn’t be in your back yard. (Don’t bother calling the local Coeymans police, though, they’re the criminals!)

It’s time to do YOUR part in cleaning up RCS!

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!

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.
