Parents Can Come Out Kicking and Punching Now. You Don’t Have to be Afraid Anymore!
If They Retaliate, Sue Them and Take Their Jobs!

The New York State Anti-Bullying Law, the Dignity for All Students Act (DASA), Went Into Full Effect on July 1, 2012.
The Law Now Makes Teachers, Principals, Administrators, School Districts Responsible and Liable for Acts of Bullying that Take Place on School Property or in the Context of School Activities. Now, In Addition to their Civil Liabilities for the Welfare of School Children, the Law Makes the Schools Co-Liable for Bullying of Students on Students,  or Teachers, TA’s, or Coaches on Students. But It’s Up to YOU, It’s YOUR Responsibility as Parents, to be Proactive and Public in Protecting Your Children!

Make the School District Accountable
It’s the Law Now!

We just received another request from a concerned RCS parent with a child or children in the RCS schools who writes [names redacted to protect the individual’s identity and to ensure confidentiality]:


The Parent’s Plea:

“Hello Im another concerned parent of RCS children …I was hoping you assist me. Simply what I am Looking for is…What lawyer is representing the [redacted] family in their suit against the RCS district? I ask since I am in the process of seeking my own legal advice for bullying. If you don’t know or feel uncomfortable disclosing that information hopefully you can suggest an attorney who isn’t so-called “corrupted”.
“Also would you be able to direct me to any other possible resources out there that may be able to help me?
“I have followed the “chain of command” regarding the bullying since October 2011, teacher- guidance – principal – superintendent – CSE – teacher- principal -superintendent &  recently a email to the board (no replies to the email).
“Simply put .. I’m at a large brick wall of a dead end- and need direction, to insure the safety of my child.”


Our Response:

Your original message was forwarded to us by one of our contributors whom you contacted with your request but did not have the information you needed. We hope we can offer you some help in this response.

No child deserves to be hurt socially, emotionally or psychologically, least of all in our schools!

First of all, any concerned parent would be well advised to seek out other concerned parents and to join together to seek representation as a group. First of all, a group has more backbone to pursue such a campaign, there’s “power in numbers.” Secondly, in a group, you can all share your experiences and establish a pattern of abuse and indifference by the administration, essential probative items for a good case. Thirdly, in a group you can share not only stories but also expenses. Getting individual representation might be difficult but if a group of you approach an attorney, s/he’ll have a better feel for the situation and can put together a better strategy. Fourthly, the District would be more intimidated and more prone to settle if confronted by a group of parents represented by an attorney who is ready to kick ass.

One of the problems you parents who contact us have is that you say you want to protect your children but are willing only to go half way. You want to do what you’ve been doing for years–not only you but so many others–creeping around in the shadows, trying to stay invisible, yet saying you want to stop the bullying or solve the problems. But you’ve got to stand up and come out into the light to do that.

You parents are not going to get anything done by skulking around in the shadows, not wanting your names mentioned, not wanting to tell your stories to the public, wanting to assert your rights but wanting also for someone else to carry the load for you. Sorry, that doesn’t work.

Individually, your lovely school district is going to eat you up one-by-one when you come with your complaint. You think your tax dollars are going to the children in your schools, do you? Just wait until you have an issue with the school district, that same school district who is always telling the voters, “We’re here for the kids.” But not your kids. You may have already experienced how concerned they are for the kids: did you get any response to your complaints or inquiries about the incidents you are talking about? Probably not. The RCS CSD turns into an entirely different animal when it comes to having to deal with a problem, especially when it might make them look bad. And it’s an ugly beast when it comes to responding to a complaint about a child’s welfare in the schools; that really makes them look bad. Don’t you think you should be telling the world about that?

It’s usually very unlikely that the District will respond to e-mails, they’re too dangerous. But what I do and always suggest first and foremost is that you document everything in writing in a notebook or some other way as soon as possible after an event or incident or contact. That’s very important when it comes to evidence and any hearings or court appearances. If it’s written down as soon as possible after it happens it’s 1000x better than plain old memory. Second, put all your requests into letter form, clearly stating the problem (no emotions, just the facts, please), times, dates, names, and what you want answered. Always include a reasonable request for something to be done that will make you happy or satisfy you. Then mail it to the school principal, the RCS CSD superintendent, and to the president of the board of education. Send the copy to the RCS CSD superintendent by certified mail, return receipt requested. Then you have proof you made the inquiry, proof they received it, and then proof they didn’t bother to respond.

As for sharing information about someone else’s representation or case, I’m afraid I”m not in the position to to do that. But what I would suggest is that you call the individual or drop by that individual’s home, they’re very welcoming and helpful, and talk to them about your needs and concerns. Talking directly to persons with similar problems is immensely helpful and healing. It’s worked well with many types of problems.

If you still want to go at it alone, I would suggest you contact the New York State Bar Association Lawyer Referral and Information Service at 1 (800) 342-3661 lr@nysba.org, or Department for Children, Youth and Families Programs & Services at the Child Protective Services (CPS) Hotline: 1 (800) 342-3720, tell them what you need, a ask for a recommendation for assistance in moving forward with your case.

I’d also suggest that you get out of that Democrat cesspool of political party machinery and give Pete Lopez, your NYS Assemblyman for the 127nd Assembly District (but running for the newly formed 102nd district that includes Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk, New Baltimore are part of his district), tell him about the problems you’re having, about the response you’re getting from the District, ask for his help. Tell him this bullying problem is big here and obviously big everywhere if the legislatures of a large number of states have actually passed laws like the the Dignity for All Students Act (DASA),  New York’s “Dignity Act“! That’s why he’s there. Besides, if you hadn’t already heard, it’s an election year and the candidates will be chomping at the bit for sensitive issues to toy with.” In fact, call everyone who’s running and not part of the local political machine (that would exclude Tom Dolan who has done NOTHING with regard to helping parents with the bullying problem–he’s part of the political gang that’s part of the problem!). And you haven’t heard a peep out of the Delucas, the Bartletts, the Whalens, Engels, Revilles, Latters, Misuracas, Leput-Hommels or any of the other Coeymanazi bunch about the bullying problem. Of course not! They’re part of the system and you don’t buck your own system. And besides, they’re all out doing something ultra-important: collecting bottles. Do you get it? If it’s easy and gets them brownie points they’ll do it; if it involves getting their hands dirty and being prophets, Forget it! Just give them glory and they’ll love you for it but don’t expect much in return.

So, what I’d recommend first of all is to find like-minded allies, especially parents whose children were bullied in the past and may have graduated or left the RCS school district. They may be very willing to step out with you. Then, contact parents with children still in the RCS school district and get together, explaining how important it is to join up and step out. You’ll get nothing done if you and others like you keep hiding. You’ll never be able to say that you actually did sometihing to protect your children and some day they might actually ask you, “Why didn’t you, mom, dad? What will you answer?

Of course I will respect your request to keep our conversations private but I would also ask you to please continue to keep us updated on what you are doing and how it’s working for you. It helps us to help others in your situation or in similar situations to know how our advice is working for them.

Good luck!

Teacher- and Coach-on-Student Bully

Keep in mind the types of bullying that go on in our schools includes student-on-student, teacher-on-student, coach-on-student (sometimes even teacher-on-teacher, and student-on-teacher, believe it or not)! We can talk about various types of bullying that often appear simultaneously:

  • Physical: pushing, kicking, assault with objects, etc. It occurs more frequently in primary than in secondary. But don’t be led astray by this generalization, as student’s get older, physical abuse becomes more covert, more calculated, more dangerous and symptomatic of bigger problems ahead! Research shows that bully teachers and coaches have a history of being bullied. There’s also evidence of a bullied-connection withviolent, sociopathic behavior in adults.
  • Verbal abuse and name-calling, slurs in public, highlighting physical defects, etc.. It is the most common and can leave very deep scars. Words do harm and harm deeply.  Teachers be especially aware of this in yourselves.
  • Psychological: undermine the individual’s self-esteem and foster their sense of fear. The psychological harm is really a common feature of any bullying but it is a standalone form of bullying, too.
  • Social: attempts to isolate the members of other groups, or to exclude certain persons or classmate as members of a group. Scarring. Can produce problems further down the road in the young adult and the mature adult (true for all of the bullying types!).

So, In Summary, Our Advice Is:

  • You need to be parents to your children. That’s more than just providing them with a cellphone, junk food, and a ride to the mall! You need to be a positive role model, a source of nurture and protection. Not a friend, a parent!
  • Have open, honest dialogue with your children about the reality of bullying and that there is a law against it.
  • Encourage your children to bring their concerns to you immediately, not to wait, not to be afraid.
  • Get names of other children who have been bullied (your own children will probably be the best sources for this information, believe it or not). Kids see and hear a lot at the school and that makes them great sources of information. Contact the parents of other children who have been bullied or abused in your district. Get together to form an action committee. There’s power in numbers and the more people you have with similar experiences, the more credible your own case. This will become very important later at hearings or in court!
  • Document all incidents, conversations, contacts, etc. in a written record with dates, times, incendent description, names of those involved, names of those contacted, outcome (always with dates and times!).
  • Confront principals, administrators, superintendent, board of education immediately with your concerns. Don’t wait! They’ll use that against you! And do it in writing(not by e-mail), and what you expect to be done to fix the situation. The best way is a copy of the letter of notice or inquiry to each of the levels (principal, administrators, superintendent, BoE) with the copy to the superintent by certified mail, return receipt requested. Remember: Stick to the facts, admit nothing, don’t get emotional, assume you are always the victim! Don’t let them use anything against you later! Don’t believe any promises! Get it in writing!
  • Follow up on each of your inquiries or complaints by telephone call (note date, time, who spoken to, and substance of the call), and then with a written confirmation of the follow-up and brief details of the conversation. Send a copy to the other party and to the superintendent.
  • If you still don’t get a response. Contact the local police, make a complaint. Send a copy of the complaint to the Albany County District Attorney’s Office referring to the Dignity for All Students Act (DASA), send a copy to your Assemblyman and to your state Senator. Do this by regular mail, not by e-mail. You can follow up or confirm by e-mail and attach a scanned copy of the hard copy letter or complaint.
  • Contact the  New York State Bar Association Lawyer Referral and Information Service at 1 (800) 342-3661 lr@nysba.org for a referral to an attorney specializing in lawsuits against school districts, even specializing in cases under the Dignity for All Students Act (DASA). Under the law you are entitled to an initial free consultation with an attorney. If s/she decides to take the case, get him or her to provide you with a written letter of representation that states the approximate cost of the case in fees etc. and the approximate length of time s/he expects the case to take to resolution. Do not ask for promises that you will win; that’s unreasonable.
  • From that point on, let the attorney do his/her magic, but follow-up regularly, never trust or think that they’re on top of it, they’re probably not and will likely need some high-voltage prodding to get them to move their asses. Stay out of the way but stay informed!
  • Be  active! Be very active! It’s your children at risk, not theirs. Your children will thank you some day…or curse you if you’don’t act now!

Not on my lawn and
DEFINITELY NOT ON MY KIDS!

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.]

Times Union Only Gets Worse…And Worse…And Worse

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

The Times Union is Continuing Its
Disgraceful Abuse of the Public Trust and Misrepresenting Facts.

And a small loudmouthed minority of you go around bitching about the blogger this and the blogger that, and the blog! So far, my dear friends and neighbors, this is the only place you have been able to read the facts, the truth, and what’s more, everything you read is supported by verifiable sources! So what’s your beef, people? Too much truth and not enough misinformation?

When????

Well, if That’s Your Problem, You’ll be Pleased to Know that the Smalbany Times Useless is Continuing to Make the Ravena Coeymans Selkirk community the laughing stock of the entire depressed and provincial Capital District.  You really need to ask youself, citizens, residents of Ravena, Coeymans and Selkirk why is it that the Times Union is picking on you and your community as if there’s not enough to find in the New York state governor’s mansion, the State Legislature, in other school districts across the region. Why is the Times Union so obsessed with Ravena, Coeymans, Selkirk? Is that all the news there is in the Capital Region?

Time To Tell the Rag
ENOUGH!!!

 When is the School Superintendent going to protest the lambasting and scandalizing of her district? When is the Times Union finally going to get some ethics, some decent reporting skills, some integrity, some balls and go after the real problems in the Capital District, in the State Legistlature, in the Albany County District Attorney’s Office!!!

When are YOU going to finally take a stand?

It’s Obvious: The Albany Times Union Is
Bullying US, the Average Citizen!
Where are its real interests?

Have you ever wondered that the Times Union hasn’t reported a thing on the real corruption in our community? The Coeymans Police Department, the Coeymanazis who pushed the 2012-2013 school budget, the teachers and teachers union who staged the performances, for lack of a better description, by students in and around the voting area, the double-dipping, the fact that when all of the craziness was going on it was the teachers, the teachers spouses, and the teachers union who had the majority on the RCS school board! Doesn’t anyone hear that? Read it again! Now do you understand?

Those blind prostitutes at the Times Union, instead of praising the RCS CDS school board for making courageous decisions once the citizen/resident side got the majority, crucify the board members who were duly elected by this community.

Instead of praising the board of education members who voted to give Matt Miller his walking papers, that’s the teacher who pulls $88 grand out of the district in salary, who works a reduced teaching load so that he can take care of union business at taxpayer expense–no state department allows an employee to do union business on state time and pays that employee–but the RCS central school district does. And then, when the sitting citizen/resident side of the board under the presidency of John Vadney gives the parasite the boot, and refuses to renew Matt Miller’s position as “energy manager” and refuses to pay him an additional $10 grand on top of the $88 grand he receives in salary, the Albany Times Union sides with the crooks, and blasts the RCS board of education.

The Delucas are posting all over the place on social media that poor Matt “the Mutt” was a victim, that it was not good sense, not right, but personal and a political move, when the RCS board of education opted to save this district $10 by not renewing a useless position that was being misused by the district crooks to reward an insider, Matt Miller, president of the RCS CSD teachers association. How corrupt is that?

Who in hell does the Times Union think it is telling this district how to run its affairs. It’s this district that will solve its own problems and it doesn’t need the Smalbany Times Usless’ help to do it.

Don’t you wonder who’s behind all of this crapola? Who it is that’s perverting the facts, and what’s in it for them to make this community look like a gaggle of inbred woodchucks basking on a dung heap of a community? Someone must have an “in” and is getting special service from the Times Useless to have them mess up the facts so criminally, and conspicuously  avoid reporting on the real problems.

But the gnawing question is: How can a well-established regional newspaper be so stupid? You’d expect that sort of unprofessional behavior and indifference to the truth to be something you’d see in a small-town, mom-and-pop rag that would foster local feuds and biases. But to have a Hearst Corporation company act so imbecilic and so irresponsibly? They all need to be given their walking papers!

Now some giant dork of an editor at the Times Union gets on the bandwagon–but we have noted that she or he didn’t identify him or herself in the article, there’s no by-line– and is insulting the whole damned RCS community in a Sunday editorial.

Haven’t You Noticed Anything Yet?

And hasn’t anyone asked the question why John Vadney is getting all the attention in this fraudulent aggravated harrasment frame-up? Wasn’t Dirty-Hands Jerry’s good friend Josephine O’Connor the source of all the lunacy in the first place? Wasn’t it Josephine O’Connor’s father, Joseph “Joe” Tracey who accosted a local business woman and threatened her and her family?  Wasn’t it Joe Tracey who got himself arrested by the Bethlehem Police? Did you ever ask why it had to be the Bethlehem police? Wasn’t it Joe Tracey who got slammed with a protective order to keep John Vadney’s family from harm? Wasn’t it Joe Tracey who admits in a sworn deposition that the morning after getting slammed by a Town of Bethlehem judge with an order of protection to stay away from John Vadney’s home that Joe Tracey actually violates the protection order, drives to Vadney’s home, sees the police there, and then takes off? Did you every ask how Joe Tracey or was it Deluca, as a favor to his  dear little pet Josephine O’Connor, who took Joe Tracey’s complaint and sent the Coeymanazis to arrest John Vadney–in violation of Judge Jordan’s order of protection! No police in the civilized world would have actually arrested anyone on such idiotic grounds, but the Coeymanazis did. And you didn’t ask why? And you didn’t ask who gave the orders?

There are obviously very good explanations for all of this: What good would it have done the Coeymanazis to take the businesswoman’s complaint and arrest Joe Tracey for his misconduct. Answer, in case you need help with it : NONE. But did you ask why the Coeymanazis responded so immediately and so totally to Joe Tracey’s fraudulent complaint? It was all a conspiracy, a set up to get rid of citizen/resident board members and to keep the teachers majority. Once the they got rid of the citizen/residents–look how many times and how they’ve consistently tried to get board members to resign! It was almost a regular occurrence! They have cooked up so many scandals and half-truths to get public backing and they, the Coeymanazis, still failed.

But if you can frame, set up a prominent leader on the board of education, that, my friends would be a real blow to everyone.  And so, in their insane logic, they keep repeating the same idiotic mantra and the Times Useless keeps printing it like a good tabloid should, hoping that somehow, if you hear it enough, you’ll believe it. Don’t let that happen! For your own good! For your own self-respect! For your own survival!

Coeymanazi Message to You

Then the vote YES! bunch got the 2012-12 school budget approved by the board of education by the teachers majority at the time, saddled the community property owners with an additional 6.8% tax levy, pulled at everyone’s heart strings with the shroud of “it’s for the kids,” did everything that the RCS community is now being investigated for, and now they and the Times Useless are trying to shift the public’s attention to everyone but the guilty ones! Are you RCS citizens/residents totally missing all of this?

The Coeymanazis and the Delucas cry, “Get rid of Vadney, the  Lukens, the Robbins, the Krzykowskis, the Sylvesters (yeah, they have already been attacking Judy Sylvester!) on the board!” Who do they suggest to take their places…some select Coeymanazies? Is that why are they are attacking Judy Sylvester, because she voted her good conscience on the board of education president and vice president, because she voted her good conscience on getting rid of Matt Miller and saving the community $10 grand! She’s on the blacklist now because she didn’t vote the Deluca way! Are you still missing the connections?

More than $41 is an awful big temptaion for those already in the school system and receiving the benefits of the school budget and the contracts that may come out of it. And you think that those standing to benefit directly or indirectly for their favors and support are going to let a bunch of normal citizens make decisions that may prevent the graft, corruption and thievery that’s been going on in this district for years…the swimming pool was just the start.

The teachers and Deluca wanted James Latter to be president of the BoE; that failed. Then they tried to get him in as vice-president, that failed, too! James Latter was their only choice! But we all know James Latters history of misconduct, just read this blog and our article James Latter: Why Is He Still On the Board of Education? What do you think, we make this stuff up? It used to be reported in the News Herald but now that’s a Coeymanazi rag, too. Just ask around. Ask some parents about Latter’s misconduct! But James Latter was the Coeymanazi choice because he plays the Coeymanazi game.

It’s really nutz. I just read on one of the social media sites one of our own residents, R.J. D’Esposito, big idiotic grin on his fat face, posting a link to the latest Times Useless smear of the RCS community! This is the same R.J. D’Esposito that Dirty Hands Jerry keeps in tow. Why would D’Esposito relish in passing such garbage on, and drawing more attention to that despicable RAG that it ever deserves. That’s like shitting where you eat…maybe he does. We’ve been  told that  the FaceBook bandits on “RCS Friends and More,” apparently run by the Coeymanazis led by Cathy Deluca, whose favorite phrase is: “Just ignore him,”  allow R.J. D’Esposito to post the TU links (is that little grinning weasel working for the TU, we wonder?), but on reader tried to get equal time for this blog as an alternate viewpoint and the “RCS Friends” keep on removing it.  Deluca and her minions apparently would rather publish the anti-RCS blather from the Times Useless than the truth and true facts. There’s your community leader Cathy Deluca, for you. Well, with “RCS Friends” like D’Esposito and Deluca, we certainly don’t need any enemies!

We just heard (July 16, evening) that Michelle Waldenmaier Koeppel, one of the administrators on RCS Friends & More (FaceBook) has gone on a deleting rampage and has deleted all of the “political” comment on the site. Her reasoning is because the site is only for “getting together and sharing good times.” Of course, we know the real reason for the tyranical purge, don’t we? Now the majority of posts are by Guess who? None other than Cathy Deluca!

Lord Jeezis! When are you people going to wake up and smell the burning toast? How much of a smoke alarm do you people need to start pumping water on your burning community? How much longer are you going to lie down, roll over, get kicked, and thank the abusers for the abuse?

When are you finally going to tell that rag, the Times Useless, to go play someplace else? When are you finally gooing to stand up for what’s clearly, conspicuously, obviously right, and decisively clean your house of the Coeymanzies!

Get smart and stop believing all of the shite you’re beeing spoon fed! This is really getting embarrassing and really frustrating to stand on the sidelines and watch you people get creamed!

You Need to Make Some Choices!

Seems There’s A Lot of Misinformation Going On, Thanks to the Albany Times Union (The Smalbany Times Useless) and Other Rumor and Gossip Mongers

Let Go of His Ear, Biatch!

 So We’d Like To Set The Record Straight On A Couple Of Facts:

FALSE: The constantly repeated allegation RCS central school district board of education president harrassed or threatened anyone at all is absolutely FALSE. But it is TRUE that the local press, especially the Smalbany Times Useless rag  and the Coeymanazis are perverting the facts and willfully misinforming the public!

TRUE: The RCS central school district board of education president was set up and framed by special interests, to be specific, the Coeymanazis, in an effort to keep their majority on the board and keep control of the $41+ million dollars of the school budget. And it is TRUE that their attempt failed miserably.

FALSE: It is not true that the May 15 RCS central school district voting on the 2012-13 school budget of more than $41 million dollars was lawful. It is TRUE that it  burdened RCS property owners with an additional 6.8% increase in tax, and it was in many respects unlawful.

TRUE: The RCS central school district is being investigated for voting irregularities, possible voting fraud, and has been lambasted in an audit for its deficient financial practices.

TRUE: All of the previous corrupt and conspiratorial practices uncovered by this blog and in official investigations occurred while the Coeymanazis were in control of the board and the teachers clique and the teachers union, under Matt “the Mutt” Miller, pushed special interests.

TRUE: The citizens and residents of the RCS central school district now have control of the board, and the special interest groups, the teachers and teachers union no longer have a majority.

TRUE: John M. Vadney was reelected to be president and Mike Robbins was elected to be vice-president  of the RCS central school district board of education. Neither Vadney nor Robbins has anything to gain by being on the board; in other words, they are there in virtue of good will and community spirit. This is not true of the teachers clique (Engel, Latter, Reville, Whalen), who stand to benefit from their board activities. John M. Vadney (president) and Mike Robbins (vice-president) received the RCS Central School District Board of Education vote of confidence!

TRUE: Josephine O’Connor engaged in conflict of interest and benefits directly from her vote to give her husband, an RCS teacher, tenure. She should have abstained from that vote. She also engaged in conflict of interest by voting in favor of the adoption of the 2012-12 school budget from which she stands to benefit directly.

TRUE: Josephine O’Connor’s father, Joseph Edward Tracey, harrassed and threatened a local business woman and her family; Tracey then harrassed the school board president. Tracey was arrested and an order of protection granted against him. Tracey was used by his daughter Josephine O’Connor in a conspiracy to discredit the school board president in a failed effort to force his resignation. If this is true, O’Connor and Tracey are guilty of perjury and conspiracy, and aggravated harrassment. They and the Coeymans Police Department and the Town of Coeymans can be charged with violation of the school board president’s civil rights! The possible result: civil rights lawsuits and big cash awards! The community pays for the indifference and corruption of the Town and the Police!

TRUE: It is true fact that Josephine Tracey-O’Connor’s father, Joseph Edward Tracey, was arrested by the Bethlehem police, it was not because the board of education president, John M. Vadney, demanded that he be arrested, it was because Tracey was disorderly with the police when the Bethlehem police called to talk to him about Vadney’s complaint and about his behavior; if Tracey didn’t act like a jerk he would probably never have been arrested! Only when Tracey became disorderly did the Bethlehem police say “Enough!” and arrested him. It was only then that at Vadney’s request, Judge Jordan, Bethlehem town justice, granted the Order of Protection against Tracey, ordering him to stay clear of the Vadney family. The Order of Protection was granted by Judge Jordan because Tracey was a danger and a threat! Not only did Tracey violate that order through the retaliation by and through the Coeymans Police, but in a sworn deposition, Tracey admits to going to Vadney’s home on the next morning, but seeing the police there, did not stop. Tracey admits in his own deposition that he willfully was violating the judge’s order! Please note that it was not the Coeymanazi police who arrested Tracey but the Bethlehem police, and it was not a Coeymans town justice who imposed the protective order but a Town of Bethlehem justice!

TRUE: The Town of Coeymans supervises and manages the Coeymans Police Department. The Town of Coeymans Supervisor, Stephen Flach,  has stated that the Town of Coeymans has no policy or procedure for investigting citizen complaints against the Coeymans Police. The Coeymans Police Department claims to have a policy / procedure but does not enforce it. The Town and the Police are indifferent to citizens’ rights!

TRUE: Officer Kerry Thompson, a part-time employee of the Coeymans Police Department and an employee of the Albany County Sheriff Department, refused to take a local woman’s complaint against Joseph Edward Tracey, father of former board of education vice-president Josephine Tracey-O’Connor, in clear violation of the Coeymans Police Department’s alleged policy and procedure for investigation of citizen complaints. The policy clearly states that employees of the Coeymans PD must take all complaints or face discipline. Thompson was never disciplined according to the “policy.” The Town and the Police are indifferent to citizens’ rights!

TRUE: Matt Miller, a teacher at the RCS high school, recieves a full teacher salary but has a reduced teaching load (2 periods only), so that he can do teachers union work as president of the RCS teachers association. In other words, he is paid to do union work representing the special interests of the teachers, on teaching time and with taxpayer money. Until recently, during that same time, Miller was receiving an additional $10,000 in compensation for acting as the RCS energy manager: he told people to turn the lights off!

TRUE: On July 10, 2012, the newly installed RCS school board took its first decisive step in removing waste and corruption: the board voted to revoke the position of RCS energy manager. This means that Matt Miller will no longer be in that position and will no longer collect the additional $10,000 he was receiving as double-dipper-in-chief. The teachers clique on the RCS board of education fought wildly to keep their little darling pet Matt Miller in the position but reason prevailed and the citizen/resident members on the board voted to remove him (this does not mean that the position was eliminated). The citizen / resident members of the board stood for what was right and in the spirit of one resident’s words: “We don’t need a position” that pays someone an additional $10,000, “to tell people to turn off the lights!”

TRUE: The local media, especially the Albany Times Union (Smalbany Times Useless), a division of union-busting Hearst Corporation, has consistently misinformed the public and this community about the facts, and has failed in its civic duty to provide fair, objective, and unbiased reporting on local issues.

TRUE: The Coeymanazi gang was conspicuously absent from the May 10, 2012, RCS board of education meeting. There can be only one reason for this silence–they’re on the run and are busy hatching another plot, another conspiracy for the ruination of any collaboration or cooperation in this community. Be on guard for new misinformation by the Deluca-Bartlett-Latter-O’Connor-Hommel-Engel-McTigue-D’Esposito-Roman (TU)-Coeymanazi gang! Let this blog know what you find out and we can put a stop to the corruption and conspiracies before they even hatch! It’s up to the good citizen /residents of this community to clean house!

TRUE: A contributor to this blog has reported that s/he has received what can be interpreted as a death threat: “I swear when you turn up dead I will know who killed you. Me.” This threat is under investigation and we can identify the source. The information will be turned over to the New York State Police and to the FBI for investigation and prosecution. Stay tuned for an update!

There are many more instances but these should be enough to convince you that the truth is out there but it’s not getting to you.

Thank You! For Your Interest, Mr Soares!

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

As You All Probably Know, We Track Visits and Readers to Get An Idea Of Who Is Visiting and Reading this Blog and Where They’re Coming  From. Some Government Computers Identify Who Is Visiting or At Least the Office.

Mr Soares!

 

P. David Soares
Albany County District Attorney

Over the Past Several Weeks We Have Noted Occasional Traffic from the FBI, the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), Various BOCES Sites, Frequent Traffic from the Department of Education, NYS Department of Technology, and Interestingly, From the Albany County District Attorney’s Office, from Mr P. David Soares’ Very Own Offices.

Because we’re so very flattered by the frequent visits and their sheer numbers (4-6 a day!), we decided to acknowledge Mr Soares’ keen interest in this blog by sending him a personal e-mail:

Dear Mr Soares:
 
According to our site tracking statistics and data, your office has been showing some considerable interest over the past several weeks in our Smalbany blog. We note several visits from your offices almost every day (except weekends). Is it you, Mr Soares, or a staffer who is such a regular visitor to the blog site? Mrs Darlington, perhaps? But from work?
 
There is an open letter to you and several other County figures on the blog. That is the primary place you should be monitoring. There are other articles that you should be VERY interested in surveying simply because (1) they discuss your office internally, (2) they discuss persons who should be of interest to your office officially in terms of investigation and prosecution, (3) they discuss activities and conduct that should be of interest officially in terms of investigation and prosecution.
 
One would hope that your office’s frequent visits to the blog are the visible signs of your office’s doing its job and not simply checking to see if your office has been implicated or criticized for dereliction of duty, obligation, and responsibility.
 
Once again, Thank you! for your conspicuous interest in the blog. We hope you are finding what you want and are enjoying your visits.
 
We’re monitoring, too. We won’t forget it’s an election year.
 
The Editor

P.s. Mrs Darlington: Please don’t conceal this letter of gratitude and let it get through to Mr Soares. We’re sure he’ll understand and in turn, will be very grateful to you for your ‘attentiveness.’

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.

Psycho Set-up: Watch Out Mr Lukkens!

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

We’ve Seen the Videos But We Get Delayed Reports on What Actually Goes On That the Camera Misses. Maybe It’s Missing Too Much!

Crazy Like A Cat!

 We’ve commented on Josephine O’Connor’s uncanny nerve to keep the entire board of education on tether hooks and her arrogance to show up at the 11th hour on April 17th, just in time to give a heart-wrenching performance–and performance it was–only to cast the deciding vote to get the 2012-13 inflated school budget on the ballot and to saddle property-owners with an additional 6.8% on their tax levy. And what an amateurish performance it was!

We also reported on Josephine O’Connor’s idiotic “He called me fat!” dance at the high school, after the May 15th budget voting. That, too, was something only Josephine O’Connor heard in her head…seems no one else in the group or in the immediate area managed to hear anyone calling her fat (except for the voices in her head).

We then reported and Josephine O’Connor’s conspiracy with her father–and highly likely under the guidance and direction of others, because she’s too dumb to have set it all up herself–to get her father Joseph Edward “Joe” Tracey to threaten a local woman business owner and her family. She didn’t care that it got her lackey father arrested on misdemeanor aggravated harassment. But her father certainly left no doubt that they’re related when he requested a call from board of education president John Vadney, and proceeded to threaten Vadney on the speaker phone, which got Tracey arrested and allowed Vadney to get an order of protection against Tracey.

But not enough! Thanks to Josephine O’Connor’s conspiracies, and even after a Bethlehem town judge issues and serves the order of protection on Tracey personally, Josephine O’Cononr’s father, Joe Tracey ignores the judge’s order and manages to get the local Coeymanazis, Coeymans police officers Kerry Thompson (also working at the Albany County Sheriff’s department) and D. Crosier, in violation of Judge Jordan’s order of protection, to continue O’Connor’s and Tracey’s aggravated harassment and to unlawfully arrest the board of education president. Nice going Thompson and Crosier–accessories to violation of a lawful order of protection.

Cops with Dirty Hands

Not only did Thompson and Crosier aid and abet O’Connor’s conspiracy and Joe Tracey’s continuing harassment in blatant violation of an order of protection but they also denied Mr Vadney his due process rights and made an unlawful arrest, while ignoring a lawful order of protection. If the conspiracy, harassment, retaliation, intimidation, violation of due process rights and unlawful arrest were not enough, they further caused Mr Vadney and his entire family extraordinary psychological stress and placed them under duress, and defamed Mr Vadney. Not even a week after her shameful conduct, Josephine O’Connor–looking like she has had much better days, as we’re sure she must have–was forced to look on as RCS board of education president John Vadney was honored by the RCS Central School District for his achievements on the board and his selfless pursuit of excellence and continuing training: Superintendant Smith presented John Vadney with the Board Achievement Award, which is an award given by the New York State School Boards Association in recognition of training and continually expanding government knowledge and skills.

Mr Vadney’s son, upon entering the RCS High School building the Monday following the retaliation and harassment, denial of due process, and unlawful arrest was savagely attacked, NO! ambushed by another student, who struck the young man in the head and left lacerations on his neck and back! Josephine O’Connor’s conspiracies, her father, Joe Tracy’s participation, and Coeymanazi cops Kerry Thompson and D. Crosier now became the proxiate cause to endangering a minor and instigating a bully attack–a hate crime and assault and battery!

At the very same board of education meeting at which Mr Vadney was honored, the video of the meeting shows Josephine O’Connor sitting off at some distance from the Superintendant Elizabeth Smith and the president of the board Mr John Vadney, like some naughty child with a grimace, toying with a plastic water bottle, and allegedly kicking the table throughout the entire meeting. There’s something very disturbing about that sort of disturbed behavior in a scary person who claims to want to be a teacher! Not on this planet, honey!

Make the Move, Josephine!

But, it seems the set ups never cease. We have reports that Josephine O’Connor asked Mr Jeff Lukkens, one of the very persons her clique has been after and defamining, to ‘accompany her to the ladies room’ because she allegedly felt unsafe. (That’s understandable noting that the meeting was taking place in the RCS High School!) And, Mr Lukkens, being the nice guy that he is–damned fool, too–accompanies her. And who do they meet on the way? Our little friend, Jerry Deluca. Now what’s he lurking around for. Mr Lukkens tells Deluca to accompany O’Connor back. Wise move, Lukkens.

Why didn’t O’Connor ask her husband, who was at the meeting, to accompany her? Or someone from her own clique? Well, to an observer of all of this, it’s obvious: What was she going to do? Set up Lukkens, too? Claim he tried something along the way to the ladies room…or worse? Why would a grown woman feel so insecure? There’s something very strange going on in that head!

Our advice: Stay away from her or you’ll find yourself up against the wall with Deluca or one of his Coeymanazis cuffing you.

Why’s Deluca and the rest of the Coeymanazi gang now courting the people they were only weeks ago trying to lynch? Why? Because they’re losing ground and face. That’s why. The Rat Pack is trying to make nice but don’t trust them for a minute. They gotta go and yesterday! Send them back to the septic leach field where they came from, and fast!

More than $41 million dollars may become available and the Coeymanazis and the teachers association don’t want anyone in the way when it comes to spending it. Why do you think they’re trying to get everyone on the other side of the aisle to resign? Why do you think they’re trying every trick in the book to get the others off the board, even by setting them up, hoping that if they’re arrested or something, they’ll have to resign. That’s the strategy. But now that it’s not working, they’re putting on their make nice faces but now no one trusts them! So, Cathy Deluca, don’t waste your time we have your number. Jerry Deluca, don’t waste your time, either, we’ve had your number for a long time. Your train is heading for the cliff…hang on!

Any whining parents who voted YES! on the budget don’t waste anyone’s time. You made your bed now sleep in it. And when you roll over, ask Jerry or Cathy Deluca, or Donna Hommel, or the Bartletts, or any of the Coeymanzis why anything’s happening that you don’t quite like and didn’t expect to happen when you voted YES! While your at it, contact rcs.confidential@gmail.com and let those concerned citizens know what you’re bitching about and what the Coeymanazis respond! $41 million is one hell of a big pile of bottles and now Cathy Deluca wants you to collect more bottles. When will you people ever wake up.

Sorry Now?
You should have gotten off
the Deluca Express!

P.s. Jeff Lukkens: If you value your freedom and your good name, tell Josephine O’Connor to start wearing Depends or to get her hubby to get her to the ladies room. Do yourself a big favor!

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.

Atheist Teachers, Criminal Athletic Association, Neonazi Students

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

Atheist Teachers, Criminal Athletic Association, Neonazi Students…Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School Has It ALL!

Bully Assault & Battery at
RCS High School

With the New York State Dignity Act, an important anti-bullying law going into effect this month, it is baffling, especially in view of Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk schools’ very poor record in curtailing and preventing school bullying –teacher-on-student, teacher-on-teacher, and student-on-student bullying– how it is possible that a particularly brutal attack could happen in the RCS high school only last week!

Here’s what happened and what was caught on video:

A male ninth-grade student is attempting to pass through a door. Another male student appears to be making way for the first student to pass but then jumps the first student from behind. The attacker brutally hits the first student in the head and then claws his neck, leaving numerous lacerations and fingernail marks on the first student’s neck.

The first student was able to free himself from the attacker’s grip but not without injuries.

The entire incident was caught on video tape. The parents of the injured student demanded that the New York State Police be called; the Coeymans Police responded but were allegedly sent away by the school principal, who was instructed by the parents to allow only the State Police to investigate.

Because of fears of retaliation against the injured student that were expected on the basis of previous bullying incidents at the high school, several of which were directly attributed to the instigation of teachers having made imprudent and inappropriate remarks relating to a student, the parent of the injured student had earlier called the school to advise administration and teachers to be vigilant that day. A lot of good that precaution did!

We have previously reported on the bullying problems at the RCS high school, the reports of a teacher, Matt Miller, proclaiming himself to students to be an atheist when not reciting the “one nation under God” part of the pledge of allegiance (see  “One Nation Under God”…Maybe not.)  (Miller is president of the RCS teachers association/union), two teachers at least are known to have made inappropriate remarks about students or student’s family members which led directly to bullying incidents (see Stop the Presses…EXTRA! Bully Gangs at RCS and  Real Bullying at School is By the Teachers), school administration has either been slow to respond or totally non-responsive to incidents, including even a gun on school grounds (see Gun at School & Budget Vote Irregularities…Did you see… ), and the attacker in the most recent incident, a 15-year-old minor and resident of the Ravena community, Oakbrook Manor, is a self-proclaimed neo-nazi!

Because the attacker is a minor, the New York State Police have allegedly informed the parents of the injured student that no charges can be made against the attacking student! This was clearly a premeditated violent assault and battery on another student without provocation whatsoever! What’s this shite about not being able to charge the attacker? That’s utter nonsense! Charge the juvenile criminal and do it now or expect to see more bold attacks…and more lawsuits, including criminal charges against administrators and teachers! (On top of everything else, the RCS district is plagued with a corrupt and tainted police department and a serious retaliation problem. See Corrupt Coeymans Police Effectiveness Compromised!!!, Can You Explain This, Jerry?, This Is Your Town, Coeymans! Do you like it?).

Teachers are mandated reporters of such violence under the Dignity Act but at RCS they’re involved with the bullying! Many of the teachers don’t have the brains or the training to know the difference between opening their mouths and letting crap fly out and keeping their manure chutes shut!

And Brian Bailey, principal of the RCS high school, allegedly responds that he “Will take care of it [?]” (RCS has a record of non-response (see Schools, Superintendent:  No Response to Allegations of Bullying…)  Idiots! Brian Bailey is barely able to cross the street unassisted (see INCREDIBLE!!!)…what in hell is he going to do about this violent assault and battery on a student on school grounds? A neo-nazi, no less! Bailey can’t even be relied on to implement emergency security procedures when there’s a gun on school grounds! Who cares WHY the gun’s there! It’s there! You ask WHY? after you implement the security procedures, you DORK!

If school violence is not enough for your tax dollars, RCS residents and taxpayers, we also have our greedy little friend Matt Miller double-dipping and getting a stipend on top of his teacher salary (see A Fable of a Swimming Pool and Acquatic Sports and other Horror Stories). We have a RCS Athletic Association that’s come under fire for alleged criminal activity like misrepresenting itself as a non-profit, failing to file the required tax disclosures, illegally misusing Association funds for political purposes (see Sports Scandal Quiz: RCS Sports Association? and James Latter). There’s also the sociopath wanabe teacher, Josephine O’Connor, who does a “He called me fat!” dance for voters (see Josephine O’Connor: A Role Model of Maturity and Mental Stability…NOT!) and then gets a village idiot, her estranged father, Joseph “Joe” Tracey,  to harass and intimidate and then to file a false charge against the president of the Board of Education, getting the innocent man arrested! (see This Is Your Town, Coeymans! Criminals Gone Wild, Part II) And then we have the reall perp and pervs, over and above Josephine O’Connor, who go unscathed despite egregious violations of confidentiality in violation of the federal FERPA law, like James Latter  (see James Latter: Why Is He Still On the Board of Education?).

The Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District Recently Put to The Vote and Approved a $41,729,185 budget for the 2012-13 school year. While the proposed budget allegedly reduces spending by $708,681, or 1.7 percent compared with the current school year it increased the tax levy on property owning residents by an additional 6.8 percent! The final total was 1797 Yes votes to 1602 No votes (53 percent to 47 percent). The very close, almost a tie, provides a clear clue as to the sharp division in the community regarding this highly charged and controversial issue, not to mention the brutality and nastiness of the Yes! supporters in the campaigning leading to this vote. A large number of voting irregularities are currently under investigation by various authorities. (See More Irregularities in the Voting?, Gun at School & Budget Vote Irregularities…Did you see…,, Secret Meetings on Budget at Public School?)

Your Tax Dollars Working For You and Your Children!

Bullies are Pussies!
