Threats of School Shooting at RCS High School!!!


As of March 29, 2018, we’re still waiting for the RCS District Superintendent Brian Bailey, RCS High School Principal Lisa Partierne, Coeymans Acting Police Chief Daniel Contento, Coeymans Supervisor Phil Crandall and others (see the list below) — anyone with real facts — to comment, provide a public statement, or provide the facts about the incident. No one seems to want to come out and make a statement on this important public safety, school safety issue. Why is that?

[Editor’s Note: The RCS Central School District issued a bland statement on the incident some three days after the incident, boilerplate, of course. The statement may be difficult to find because the main subject in the title is not “student safety” but “Dr Bailey”, narcissist! Read the say-nothing statement, CYA statement at “Message from Dr. Bailey – safe schools” last accessed on March 29, 2018) See our note about SNN at the end of this article.]


The Craziness Just Doesn’t Stop in Ravena-Coeymans!

What is RCS, Coeymans PD waiting for?

On Friday, March 23, 2018, three RCS high school  students were reported to be “joking” about coming into the highschool and shooting it up.


In our article “Drive-by Shooting Arrives in RCS” we were the first to break the story about the botched up investigation of a local drive-by shooting. Coeymans Police allowed the case to go cold; no real investigation, no suspects, no arrests, no prosecution. Criminals went free. Sheriff’s Department and State Police wouldn’t touch it without Coeymans Police requesting assistance. Request was never made.

If you recall, a high-school student at RCS high school was suspendid for wearing a T-shirt depicting a weapon (National Guard), and in another incident the school was locked down and a student arrested for having a rifle in his car trunk. Just recently students at Albany High School were terrorized and evacuated, and several students arrested for a school shooting incident. Why isn’t the RCS Central School District and the Coeymans Police Department reading the writing on the wall.


Three RCS highschool students Chandler L., Dylan A., and Cameran R. were apprehended and taken into the RCS high school principal’s, Lisa Patierne’s  office and suspended for five (5) days for allegedly “joking” about shooting up the high school.Five days should be just about enough time for them to plan their extracurricular criminal activities, obtain weapons and ammunition, and execute their plan for “shooting up” the high school.

RCS Central School District Superintendent Brian Bailey, RCS high school principal, Lisa Patierne, deputy principal, Joe Slichko, and Coeymans Police Department School Resource Officer, Schwebke and his boss, Coeymans Police Chief (acting) Daniel W. Contento have some questions to answer.

With the recent waves of gun violence in our schools, such “joking” must be taken to be real threats and the individuals not only taken into custody but subjected to intense psychological evaluation, surveillance and monitoring, and other controls. BUT NOT IN THE RCS CENTRAL SCHOOL DISTRICT!!!

RCS is not the inner city, it’s not Albany Arbor Hill or Newark, NJ. And with a more than $43 million dollar budget — about 75% of which goes to salaries for personnel —, what are the teachers teaching these kids? What are the parents doing about teaching these kids correct behavior, morality, good judgment? How is it with the media coverage of the slaughter, murder, mayhem, trauma and suffering caused by students to students, to parents, to whole communities in recent shooting, that the RCS community doesn’t take “joking” about such incidents more seriously? Behind every joke is a real situation!

And with the recent scandal revolving around law enforcement misconduct and the international attention it got: Did anyone at any of the schools discuss the reasons why the conduct of two Coeymans Police personnel was reprehensible, scandalous, and outrageous? Is there anything, any room in the RCS curricula for discussions of morality, ethics, etc. or about the systemic social and political failure in the United States today that puts us at the top of the list for school shootings and other social disgraces?

Our guess is that none of this gets any discussion in the RCS Central School District and, furthermore, that most RCS parents don’t bother to discuss such things with their offspring. Judging from the response to the Coeymans Police misconduct on just one site — The Care2 Petition, which received more than 87,000 signatures (more than 10,000 in New York State alone), and the embarrassing attendance at the March 22, 2018, Coeymans Town Board meeting, at which less than 20 people showed up, three of which traveled from as far away as Queensbury to make a public statement at that meeting. That alone shows how uninterested locals are in their community. It’s a stinking shame, an embarrassment! Then you wonder why we live in such a, well, cesspool, with equally shitty elected officials, and pretty third-world services, if any? Pardon our language but there are no other words to accurately describe the situation — and you know it’s true!

We all know that our legal system will hold a host giving a party accountable for damage and injuries caused by a guest leaving the party drunk, and while under the influence, getting involved in an accident.  We say hold the teachers, the administrators, the school board members, the police department school resource officers responsible for injuries and deaths occurring on school property. PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE; the taxpayers are already being sucked dry paying for these parasites and getting nothing in return. PERSONAL LIABILITY will get these dumbasses thinking about taking their responsibilities seriously.

In the RCS Central School District, school officials and law enforcement don’t take such “joking” = “threats” too seriously. After all, the teachters, administrators, and RCS school board members are all too busy padding their pockets, planning their retirements, or budgeting school tax dollars to benefit their cronies. The Coeymans Police are too busy running over raccoons in shopping mall parking lots.

You should have a lot of questions. You should be demanding answers. Our questions are:

  • How are the three students’ parents being handled in this case?
  • Do the parents of these three students have guns, ammunition in their homes? How are they secured? Have they been seized by law enforcement during the investigation or the pending investigation?
  • Were the parents of RCS high school and middle school students informed of this threat?
  • Were students in the RCS Middle School and RCS High School, two schools on the same location, informed of the threats in a professional manner? Were they informed about ways to detect such threats and a procedure to follow? Were they educated as to what to do in such an situation? 
  • What actions, other than administrative suspension, were undertaken to investigate these students and the possibility that their “joking” was not real “threats”?
  • The RCS high school and middle school are in the jurisdiction of the Coeymans “Raccoon Killer” Police Department, what actions or plan of action do the Coeymans Police have for such threats?
  • Are these three students under supervision or surveillance?
  • What action did the RCS Central School District Superintendent, , and the RCS Central School Board of Education taken in this case?

There are some really serious questions that have to be answered in cases like this. Contact local officials to get the answers before you hear the sirens and learn about the local school shootings because nothing was done in cases like Chandler L, Dylan A. and Cameran R.

Note: Superintendent Bailey uses a techy acronym “SNN” in his so-called message. For those of you not privy to Bailey’s cryptic lingo, here’s what SNN is: School News Notifier (SNN) is an opt-in e-news service designed to help keep parents and the community more in touch with what is happening at schools via e-mail and/or text message. With SNN, administrators have the power to send updates and reminders about school activities, information about school closings and delays, and notices and other news. Parents and residents can sign up to receive e-mail messages from any of the schools and/or the district. Subscribers can choose to receive any or all of the alerts listed and can unsubscribe at any time. Subscribers must provide personal information but that information will not be shared with outside organizations. Question: What about the many computer illiterate adults, parents and non-parents, or those who do not own computers in the RCS Central School District. How does the rest of the community find out about what’s going on. That is, when our public servants ignore our requests for information?

Hidden Costs of the RCS Bottle Blitz

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

RCS Bottle Blitz
Ill-Conceived, Ignorant, and Destructive!

RAVENA-COEYMANS-SELKIRK — Kathy DeLuca and Lorraine Misuraca (left to right) next to the countless bottles donated last Thursday at the RCS High School cafeteria. Photo by Tom Tucker (Source: News Herald 138/22, July 19, 2012)

When asked several times on the RCS Friends and More Facebook site, Cathy Deluca refused to respond to the question, “How much money did the Bottle Blitz make?” Her response was, “Just ignore him.” Apparently it’s a big secret (like so much else surrounding her activities. See our article, Asskissers: No Answers, Just Censorship.). She wasn’t asked what the cost of the RCS Bottle Blitz might be. So we’re providing an estimate of the devastating cost of Deluca’s RCS Bottle Blitz.

In a recent CNN report Soft drinks: Public enemy No.1 in obesity fight? (CNN Fri April 27, 2012) Caleb Helleman writes:”Meanwhile, about 1 in 4 Americans gets at least 200 calories a day from sugary drinks. These numbers, along with work like Stanhope’s, gives ammunition to doctors and public health officials who say soda should be treated as public health enemy No. 1.”

Of course, CocaCola, the world’s largest soft-drink manufacturer takes a different view, saying: “There is no scientific evidence that connects sugary beverages to obesity,” says Katie Bayne, Coca-Cola’s president of sparkling beverages in North America, in an exclusive interview.” While Samantha Levine, spokesperson for New York mayor Bloomberg, says “Coke’s numbers have more fizz than fact. “The fact remains,” she says, “sugary beverages are a key driver of the obesity crisis that is killing 5,800 New Yorkers and costing the city $4 billion annually.”

According to an article published in the New York Times, “Soda: A Sin We Sip Instead of Smoke?” (Mark Bittman, February 13, 2012): “The problem is that at roughly 50 gallons per person per year, our consumption of soda, not to mention other sugar-sweetened beverages, is far from moderate, and appears to be an important factor in the rise in childhood obesity.

Fat in a Can!

This increase is at least partly responsible for a rise in what can no longer be called “adult onset” diabetes — because more and more children are now developing it.” The article continues, “Last week, the Obama administration announced a plan to ban candy and sweetened beverages from schools. A campaign against childhood obesity will be led by the first lady, Michelle Obama. And a growing number of public health advocates are pushing for even more aggressive actions, urging that soda be treated like tobacco: with taxes, warning labels and a massive public health marketing campaign, all to discourage consumption.”

Agendas like the RCS Bottle Blitz are in direct contravention and opposition to the White House, especially First Lady Michelle Obama’s focused campaign on health and nutrition, the National Institutes of Health, and public health efforts to stem the epidemic of obesity and related  health problems, and alcohol related morbidity and mortality, especially in young persons!

What about beer cans and bottles? Alcohol consumption can affect the individual, family, community in many ways, ranging from relatively minor consequences to incapacitation and even death, and the consumption doesn’t have to be extreme nor does it have to be “alcoholism.” The disease potentially affects everything in a person’s life, as the consequences of drinking snowball into bigger and bigger problems. There is a definite sense of progression with the effects that alcoholism has on an individual. Over the long run, things always get worse….never better.

Brewing for Trouble!
Potential Corpses in a Can!

To get some idea of the cost of alcohol abuse, the National Institutes of Health NIH released a report “Economic Costs of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Estimated at $246 Billion in The United States,”  which states that: “The new study reports that alcohol abuse and alcoholism generated about 60 percent of the estimated costs ($148 billion), while drug abuse and dependence accounted for the remaining 40 percent ($98 billion).” Here’s the real sock-it-to-me: Those figures were for 1998! Imagine what they in today’s figures! (Here’s a hint: The update calculations indicate that costs of alcohol abuse grew from $148 billion in 1992 to $185 billion in 1998, approximately a 25 percent increase, for an average annual increase of 3.8 percent. Source: Economic Costs of Alcohol and Drug Abuse (2002))

Alcohol abuse produces its evil effects mentally, physically, socially, spiritually. The overall cost to our society from alcoholism:

1) Lost time and money
2) Lost lives
3) Broken homes and families
4) Lost productivity (missed days of work, lost jobs, etc.)
5) Litigation and criminal costs

And don’t you wonder: How many of those cans and bottles were drained by underage kids? How much dangerous sex occurred after downing a couple of brews? How many jumped behind the wheel to drive?

About 5000 teenagers die every year due to alcohol use. In 2008, 11,773 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, accounting for nearly one-third (32%) of all traffic-related deaths in the United States. (Source: SADD Underage Drinking).

Teens who are drinking are more likely to have unprotected sex, which can lead to potentially fatal sexually transmitted diseases, as well as unwanted pregnancies. (For more information on teenager alcohol related deaths see Teen Alcohol Abuse).

Headlines like the San Francisco Chronicle’s “Teenage Drinking a U.S. Epidemic” [2/26/02] and the New York Post’s “Boozed-Up Teens In Dangerous Liaisons,” [2/7/02] shout along with the advocates’ PR campaigns, often including hyped-up quotes from people like the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA)’s head Joe Califano, such as “Alcohol is the fatal attraction for many teens.”

So, for those of you who come up with the stock response, “personal,” “political,” “private vendetta,” or some similar stupidity to anything that anyone says against the idiotic and poorly planned projects some misguided adults in this community come up with to raise money for the district’s children, we’d like to point out that national and well-established statistics point to the fact that soft drinks and alcohol are time bombs.

This raises the question, then, of the appropriateness and the ethics of collecting empty containers that once contained the dangerous substances to raise money for programs for children! Here’s the logic: To get empty cans and bottles, the cans and bottles first have to be purchased. They then have to be transported. Then their contents are consumed by adults or by minors. Once they’re in the body, they work their evil magic: obesity, diabetes, drunkenness, death, etc.

BUT:

All those pretty cans and bottles are given positive value by the program organizers, especially in the children’s innocent eyes, because those emptied containers are associated with field trips, fun,  friends! You are, in fact, positively reinforcing a misinformed positive image for the causes of major public health problems!

In other words, the RCS Bottle Blitz is sending the WRONG MESSAGE! It’s providing negative education and working against all public health efforts to curb soft-drink and alcohol consumption based on solid scientific evidence! It’s teaching those innocent vulnerable minds that soft drinks and alcohol are good, and they should be purchased and consumed, because the empty containers make happy things happen. What are you people thinking!!!!

What are you morons thinking?

In the July 19th News Herald, a newspaper that provides information and, Yes! education, features a large color photograph of Ms Cathy Deluca, the “inspired” organizer of the RCS Bottle Blitz, together with Lorraine Misuraca (not to be confused with Jenafer “Jena”Misuraca, who has served as the VP on  one of the RCS school PTO’s. Jena had to shut down the PBC PTO’s FaceBook page because of the arguing), posing stupidly self-satisfied in front of what are described as “47 bags of bottles and cans and 74 cases.” You don’t need a magnifying glass to make out the beer labels and the soda cans. And the title reads, “Bottle Blitz is huge success.” Not for your children’s health, not for the mortality statistics, not for the public’s health. But maybe for the misguided public image of a couple of ignorant residents and the bottom line of the beer brewers and the soda manufacturers, the manufacturers of corn syrups, and retailers.

The RCS Bottle Blitz is irresponsible and misleading in many ways and does not represent good education nor the interests of the children it’s publicized to benefit!

Now, our scathing question is not what was going on in the editor’s pinhead, nor what Cathy Deluca was thinking (that’s scary in itself), but where are the educators, the teachers in all of this. Shouldn’t those highly paid, highly educated, highly paid morons have come out with some facts and figures, some options, some alternatives? Oh! Excuse me! They have the summer off, don’t they.

You Are Accidents
Looking for A Place to Happen!
The Editor

Challenge: Ms Cathy Deluca, Lorraine Misuraca, Superintendent Elizabeth Smith, Melanie Lekocevic we and our readers would like to hear your response to this article. Please send us your comments. Warning: And, given the atmosphere in the RCS school district, please don’t point a finger at the RCS board of education for not having stepped up to prevent this ill-conceived fiasco. You know as well as we do that if any BoE member, other than the teacher’s clique (by the way, where was Whalen, Engel, the teachers when this was being proposed? Teddy Reville, James Latter?)  lifted so much as a finger to point out the risks of the Bottle Blitz, he or she would have been lynched by the Coeymanazis. So don’t try to pull that one on us, Deluca and friends.

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. It’s very important to us that we don’t fall into the same category as those whom this blog is intended to expose. Thank you very much in advance for your cooperation and assistance!
 

Hubby Opens His Fat Mouth…She Has to Apologize!

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

One of Our readers Who has Requested Anonymity has Provided Us with a Copy of an Exchange Ignited by Jerry Deluca’s Poor Choice of Words On One of Those Secret Club-Members-Only FaceBook-type Social Media Sites…And Jerry’s Backup, Cathy Deluca, Had to Come Up Real Quick with a Humble Apology.

Dirty-Hand Jerry Steps in it Again
Wotz That Smell, Jerry?

Of course, we don’t have access to the RCS Friends and More* site’s contents, and we’d probably be banned if the administrators knew we were reading it, too, but we do have some people who are keeping an eye out for the community and who sometimes send us some tidbits of interest. We thought you’d like to hear what your neighbors are talking about…

As we predicted, the Coeymanazis and their ringleaders are taking some well-earned flack. The Delucas are finding out that the community is sick and tired of their nastiness and their constant bellyaching, and the community is starting to talk back!

It seems Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca was not at all pleased with the re-election of John M. Vadney to be president of the RCS board of education, a real vote of confidence by the RCS community and the board itself, and was just as unhappy when Mike Robbins was elected to be vice-president. (It should be noted that a member of the teachers clique and Deluca pet, James Latter, a guy with a really unsavory history, was nominated to be president, LOST, and then was nominated to be vice-president, and LOST again! And you wonder why we baptized the Deluca gang The Losers Club“?)

Deluca left the meeting fuming when his pet, Matt “the Mutt” Miller got the boot! So what does Dirty-Hands Jerry do? He tries to smear the newest member, Judy Sylvester! Well, no-one was going to put up with that!

Read the comments and then read Deluca’s apology! (Editor’s Note: We’ve changed the names of the commentors to prevent retaliation by the Coeymanazis.)

“Dirty Hands Jerry” DeLuca may not have had his usual Coeymanazi backup at the July 10th board of education meeting but that didn’t keep him from sowing the sour grapes through a local gossip page on the Internet. Old “Dirty-Hands Jerry” writes:

I went to the Board meeting tonight in the hopes that The candidate who said she was an independent voice would use this opportunity to start to move RCS fowward. It was clear tonight that Mrs. Sylvester is totally alligned with the faction that continues to Bully and bring this district down. Fisrt she voted to relect Mr. Vadney as President and then voted to elect Mr. Robbins as VP. The coup de grace though came when she voted to oust Matt Miller from his post as director of energy conservation. The gang has it in for Matt and will do whatever it takes to punish him. Matt has saved the district a lot of money, but because they do not like that he stands up to their bullying they are trying to punish him. Our community is clearly a good community and good school district, we deserve real leadership. Do the right thing Judy.

Nice goin’, Jerry!
Can you get the other one in, too?

Matt Miller: Pet Weasel

Judy Sylvester did the right thing, Jerry! Of course, it wasn’t anything you would have done…it was the right thing, and Ms Sylvester has the full support of the community, too! But we really have to hand it to you, Dirty-Hands, in that remarkably small space you managed to bad-mouth just about everyone on the citizens/residents side of the board; 3 out of 5! It was no surprise, of course, that you spared the teachers clique and your pet weasel, Matt “the Mutt” Miller.  How do you manage? Well, you’ve had a lot of practice, haven’t you.

R.J. D’Esposito: The Fly on the Wall.

Well,  according to another of our sources, “Dirty Hands Jerry” was at the board meeting earlier in the evening when voting for officers was taking place and he stormed out when he heard the results. Neither Dirty-Hands Jerry or his partner Cathy Long-Deluca were  at regular meeting but their fly-on-the wall R.J. D’Esposito was sucking up everything. We’ll believe their sincerity and change of heart when their lackey whore journalist at the TU prints apologies to BoE!

R.J. D’Esposito

Little  Deluca pet R.J. D’Esposito appears to need a life! Or does he actually have one but spends it texting on the RCS Friends and More FaceBook site, that is, when he’s not heeling to Jerry Deluca or doing the almost-but-not-quite-famous RJ-staredown at the BoE meetings? Does he take off the dog collar when Jerry lets him out?

Whatever! This little muskrat has earned himself a real place among the girls on the gossip sites…not many of the local guys can make that claim to fame, RJ. Lucky you! Keep it up, muskrat… (Betcha like gladiator movies, too. Doncha?)

We get a real feel for the anti-Deluca sentiments and the growing support for the board of education from the community in some of the comments made by residents in response to Deluca’s usual whining and hate-mongering:

TA writes:

This kind of small-mindedness is maddening! Holding people accountable is now bullying?? What ‘gang’ are you referencing?? [redacted personal information] Who are the members?? Aren’t you some sort of detective?? Throwing around the words….gang?? So, because Judy voted along the same lines of some board members that you obviously don’t like, she is now a member of a GANG???? She no longer has an independent voice??? Oh my goodness, with thinking like that…what are you doing dealing with our community members and police force??? WOW…..

TA responds  to a Deluca/Miller supporter, Melissa Ashby:

 I didn’t see where Mr. DeLuca stated anything at all about his children. I did see where (see above!) he attempts to characterize Judy Sylvester as being “aligned with” and “a member of the gang” that is attempting to bully our district. All because she voted YES or NO and other board members voted the same YES or NO. Mr. Miller may be a stand up guy but that doesn’t mean the RCS district needs to pay someone $10,000 a year in addition to their salary to be the Energy Manager. The majority of the Board voted to end that. It’s about time some tough decisions are made in this district. We are one of a few of the only schools IN THE NATION to have relatively no cuts in these economic times.

TA continues:

Oh…and what is the “right thing” you are asking Judy to do, Mr. DeLuca? Vote how you would vote?? That really gives her an independent voice, doesn’t it?

TA and then responds to Melissa Ashby (a member of the Deluca camp?):

And yes, [Melissa], I do have a child. He’s grown now, a smart, independent young man, college grad and member of the United States Navy. I’m a very proud mom!

BRAVO! TA and congratulations on having parented a fine young American!

Another commentor, SP, then  joins the conversation:

A[redacted], you’re so right! Not one thing was about the kids…..only about the board and Matt Miller….[Editor’s Note: We apologize. The continuation of this response was cut off in the copy we received.]

SP continues: As for time even I don`t get on her mobile when I am out. This is the last thing I think of doing! LOL
 
CPE writes:

ENOUGH, all of you. Enough is enough. I was not brought up in this school district and I do not know all of you as well as the rest of you obviously do, however I have to agree with the individual who stated that the RCS School District is the laughing stock of the capital district, and I might add that it may be the rest of the state. When I receive newspaper clippings from my home town some 150 miles away from here telling all of those people there that RCS didn’t receive extra grant money because we don’t have the right senators or congressman representing us then the problem is much greater than the minor squabbles that are going on here. You are all beginning to sound like and act, (from the stories I am hearing) like high school girls merely gossiping amongst themselves. Do we need change, I don’t know. What I do know is that if we have thugs on the school board who are trying to manipulate and bully the other members to vote the way they want, then shame on them, and shame on the other members who don’t have the backbone to stand up for themselves. If people have to go then get rid of them, if we need to bring in an independant investigator to look into this supposed voter fraud then do it. I’m sure that nobody on the board would have a problem with that, what with all of them being the upstanding honest citizens that they are supposed to be.  Start there with your witch hunt, and see who voices the loudest opposition and you just might find out who the rotten apple really is.

 MS writes:

I’m sorry but did I hear correctly, that there was more votes than signatures in the registration books? The $64,000 question, how many votes difference? One? Five? Two hundred? How many? Way bigger news than who failed to overthrow the current administration of the BOE. Now THAT warrants an investigation by the authorities, and I KNOW that the LOCAL authorities will recuse themselves from any possible criminal investigation of voter fraud….. RIG. As far as the re-election of officers goes, lets clarify the job duties and titles of the board of Education members. They are representatives that are elected by the residents of the said district, Sorry, that are preferably alive, are supposed to fiscally mindful of the tax dollars collected in the said district and see that those collected tax dollars are spent in a manner that is the most responsible for the Education of the children in the district. This does not mean that the board members are to be “bullied” by the administrators, teachers union, past and present teachers/residents, employees of the district or family members of ANY school district past or present employees.
Please stop with the wrapping of the shroud of “its for the children” why everyone should continuue to vote for cost gouging budgets when people are just trying to buy food “for the chidren

TA replies:

I think it was 48 but I’m not definite on that. And yes, it would be nice if the Board was allowed to operate without a few certain members of our community creating chaos all the time. We have recently had news of our Town and Village Of… [Editor’s Note: We apologize. The continuation of this response was cut off in the copy we received.]
 
SP voices his opinion of the Delucas:

The disgrace is you and your wife [referring to the Deluca pair] that want to control the school from the cheap seats. The taxpayers voted her [referring to Judy Sylvester] in, not you and your wife [Editor’s Note: OUCH!]………the school is in trouble, or we would not qualify for over 300,000 dollars for the middle school…….don`t you think you should get in behind the board and not try to add discord in the school district….Is this the way you act as a detective? If it is God help us!

Cathy DeLuca responds:

Everyone (even a police investigator) is free to express thier opinion and’exchange ideas on this page. It’s very sad that you seem to think we are having such a negative effect on the school district. Aside from expressing an opinion, I’m curious to know what you think we are doing to “control from the cheap seats”. I believe it is important to listen to constructive criticism as long as it’s done respectfully. I am NOT trying to provoke you in any way.

TA reponds:

I agree, [name redacted]. It appears that Mr. DeLuca thinks that Judy doesn’t have an independent voice. Why? Because she voted Yes or No at a Board meeting whereby the likes of Mr. Vadney (gasp!), Mr. Robbins (oh dear!), etc voted the same Yes or No. Anyone who knows Judy knows that she is no shrinking violet. She didn’t run for the Board to join a team. She very definitely has her own thoughts and voice. Perhaps this should be YOUR wake-up call, Mr. DeLuca. Could it possibly be that it made sense to her to vote that way?? Apparently, according to you, that couldn’t be possible. RIDICULOUS!! What next!!??

SP:

Mrs. DeLuca that was not opinion it was a statement….by a policeman that his salary is payed for by tax payers…….

Cathy DeLuca responds to the outrage expressed by a number of subscribers to the FaceBook posting by her dear hubby, Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca and [falsely] humbly writes:

Hello Everyone, First of all I want to thank Ashley Anne Irwin, Karen Countryman and Elsie Proper Croteau for making me re-evaluate my own words and actions on this page. Ashley is correct, a long time friend of mine, Mr. Daniel Gonyea, is the creator of this page and it was intented to be a positive thing for our school and community. Dan gave me the privilage to be an administrator on the page and I have not held true to his original intention, however I WILL from here on out respect and honor his original intention. My apologies Dan. Jerry and I have discussed the current situation at great length and have agreed that neither of us will engage in negative banter any longer. Therefore, I am taking down Jerrys comment from last night. Ladies you are correct, thank you.
Unfortunately, I believe the use of social media has become a double edged sword. Although, we are able to more freely exchange ideas and opinions, we all have a tendency to choose our words with less caution than if we were speaking to someone face to face.

Yeah, Cathy, “social media has become a double-edged sword” and you and chubby chubby-chaser  hubby just cut your own throats with it! Sure, it’s tough controlling yourself when you’ve always felt you could hide behind members-only groups and say what you liked…when, really, have you ever speak to anyone respectfully, much less face-to-face? It’s tough when no one wants to talk to you anymore or when they cross the street to avoid you. And worse still, when dear hubby can’t keep his fat mouth shut, you have to come up with a groveling apology! Nice work, Jerry! Your home life must be getting real cozy about now! Now where’d you put that pet rat?

Nobody’s Listening, Deluca!

The Community Opportunity for Dialogue

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

The Inaugural Session of the Board of Education on July 10th Was An Encouraging Sign that Common Sense and the Common Good Will Take the Lead

It Usually Takes Someone To Set the Fire

Another note that was struck was that the board of education has an important role to play as a committee of role models, and so its members each have the role as educators. This is a very important point to bear in mind and one that, if each of the board members keeps that educator role in focus and is guided by it, may generate some very promising results. You can actually set the example of a model community, of exemplary coöperation, of dialogue, even of productivity. Try it!

A word to the RCS community, too: Stop the bitching and whining! Perhaps once, just once some of you could approach the commentors’ podium and present an olive branch instead of a battle-axe! Perhaps instead of a steady stream of “I’m disappointed” or “You board members…” or any of the other now clichéed and ungrateful–Yes! ungrateful –and childish whining that has characterized the public comment segments, you could just get up and say “Thank you! You’re doing your best and we appreciate the time and effort you are putting into your mandates!”  Instead, most of you have simply been casting gasoline on a brush fire and then complain that all you’re getting is smoke. First of all you elected the board members to represent you and they are trying to do so. Second, they are doing it pro bono, for no pay, because they have a sincere interest in the community. Most of them can never hope to derive any benefit whatsoever from the time and work they put in. (As most readers will know, I hold a very different opinion of the motivations of the teachers and teachers’ spouses on the board.) And then they have to take your crap besides. Stop it! And try being grateful!

Cockroach or Coeymanazi?

For once in a very great while, the nay-sayers and ne’re-do-gooders were not present at the meeting in their force. It was a peaceful meeting without the Coeymanazis (though I would not deny even the Coeymanazis the privilege of attending, on condition they can manage to act like civilized adults instead of syphilized cockroaches), and in most respects it proceeded fairly orderly. There were the few exceptions but they’re in the minority now.

The citizen/resident side of the aisle, if you’ll allow me to differentiate the sides in that way, continues to be sincere, respectful, and courteous. Wouldn’t it be great if the sneering contrary teachers clique would do the same? Their performance complete with the usual downtalk, accusations, insults and arrogance is or should be a thing of the past. It’s time now Mr Engel, Mr Latter, Mr Reville, Ms Whalen to stop the lockstepping, to stop the arrogant know-it-all downtalking, to put aside the accusations, and start collaborating, cooperating and consensus building. (Also, if you think someone should resign, do it yourself!)  You don’t have a majority anymore and it’s unlikely, given the people you’ve been hanging out with and with whom you’ve formed your failing alliances, that you ever will again have the upper hand. So, little darlings, little pets, start being nicer if you expect to get anything done.

All eyes, especially ours, are watching very closely and we don’t miss much. Make nice and do good for your own goods and for the good of the community. (And put away the matches, please!)

Cooperate, Collaborate, Communicate!

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!

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.
