Coeymans Police Suppress Freedom of Speech!

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

Please participate in the Coeymans Police Poll at Poll.

Coeymans Police Officer Ryan Johnson: If you do not cease and desist immediately from your malicious mischief and vandalism in violation of our First Amendment civil rights, we will file a federal complaint against you, the Coeymans Police Department, the Coeymans town board, and David Soares.
You’ve been served with notice

Coeymans Police Are Running Around Frantically
Silencing Free Speech!

Freedom Of Speech, Of The Press, Of Association, Of Assembly And Petition
This Set Of Guarantees, Protected By The First Amendment, Comprises What We Refer To As Freedom Of Expression. The Supreme Court Has Written That This Freedom Is “The Matrix, The Indispensable Condition Of Nearly Every Other Form Of Freedom.” Without It, Other Fundamental Rights, Like Even The Right To Vote, Would Wither And Die.

So, how would you feel about police officers cruising through the community with a roll of duct tape, stopping people on the street and taping their mouths shut; other officers stuffing up citizens’ ears with earplugs to prevent them from hearing certain messages. You can bet they’re not the messages that the police or the local administration want you to hear! That’s what’s happening in Ravena and Coeymans, New York…

Get your filthy hand off!!

Well, citizens, residents, that’s what’s happening in the Town of Coeymans: Censorship without due process is being unlawfully enforced by at least one Coeymans police officer, Ryan Johnson, in violation of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution!

Yes, it’s Ryan Johnson [again!] who is cruising through town, stopping at local businesses, and removing public information postings that he doesn’t seem to like. Included among those postings is a poll page showing a cartoon of Johnson doing what he allegedly does best: abusing citizens. The second is one that has little or nothing to do with Johnson, roving rogue cop, and is an announcement of a defense fund planned for a public servant who has been unlawfully harassed by the Coeymanazis and which would also be used to support families prosecuting for bullying under the Child Dignity Act!

HOW DARE YOU RYAN JOHNSON! WHO APPOINTED YOU CUSTODIAN OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT IN COEYMANS?!? WHO EMPOWERED YOU, RYAN JOHNSON, TO ACT AS CHIEF CENSOR OF FREE SPEECH IN COEYMANS?!?

Coeymanazi Motto
They’re all for free speech…their own!

(Speech Bubbles: “I’m all for free speech…unless I find it personally offensive.”
Double click any image to see a larger view.)

This is yet another instance of the Coeymans police depriving local residents and citizens of their civil rights. Now, our question is, AGAIN:

Where are you, FBI?
That’s just a cry for help. But aren’t you guys supposed to be investigating occurrences of violations of civil rights?
Public corruption and abuse?

We know where the FBI is and so should YOU:
200 McCarty Avenue
Albany, NY 12209
Phone: (518) 465-7551
Fax: (518) 431-7463
Special Agent in Charge
Clifford C. Holly
Assistant Special Agents in Charge
– Richard J. Licht
– Kathryn Peterson

This is really very serious crime being committed by Guess who? Law enforcement! But Ryan Johnson is just a tool, a mindless zombie who the lead Coeymanazies are  using to suppress residents and citizens.

They’re Poisoning The Community!

Lead Coeymanazis, like all enemies of the Constitution, need henchmen, and so Gregory Darlington, Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, Tom Dolan (who is trying to get himself elected to the New York State Senate! Don’t let that happen!), and the Godfathers heirs (horndogs John T. and Michael Biscone, his majesty king…oops, I meant mayor John Bruno) have thugs like Ryan Johnson do their dirty work for them…or Dirty-Hands Deluca can step in when they need a baggy suit. Our shit-head Albany County District Attorney, David Soares (who is also seeking re-election in November! Don’t let that happen, either!) turns a blind eye to all of this–ever wonder why? Just check our our previous posts showing how tainted, compromised, corrupt, incestuous the connections are in Albany County! It’s there in black and white…it’s there in black and white because its out of the reach of the Coeymanazis!

 Ladies and Gentlemen, Residents, Citizens…All of you soon to be reduced to deaf and dumb zombies! We all know that to kill a snake, any low-life, you have to cut off the head! Yes, you have to go after the Ryan Johnsons, the monkies, the tools–but remember, you’ll have to pay his legal bills if you do, the Coeymanazi-owned-and-operated town administration will defend him–but you have to cut off the heads of the monster, and those heads are: Gregory Darlington, Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, Tom Dolan (who is trying to get himself elected to the New York State Senate!), and the Godfathers heirs (horndogs John T. and Michael Biscone, his majesty king…oops, I meant mayor John Bruno; looks like Greg Teresi took the easy–and smart–way out of the vipers nest, he resigned!)

Just to be clear on this issue: NO police officer has any right whatsoever to remove any public posting that is not in clear violation of current law! That is an abuse of your civil rights to express yourself and to be heard. It is a crime against the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States. It must NOT be tolerated!

His Spawn
Are Alive and Well
In Coeymans!

Coeymans Police Officer Ryan Johnson is Out of Order
Both Johnson AND his Coeymanazi Handlers/Bosses Must be Prosecuted!

Protect your constitutional rights! Print out a copy of this article and hand it to a friend, a relative, a co-worker! They’ll thank you for it!

Please participate in the Coeymans Police Poll at Poll.

Be Pissed!
Be Really Pissed!

No News Like Old Smear: Times Union Responds

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

True to Form and to its Questionable Ethics and Pulp-Fiction  Journalism, The Times Union (Hearst Corporation) of Albany, New York, Is Scraping for a Story to Save Face and, Apparently, to Curry Favor with Its Local Minions.

 All they have is STRAWMEN and straw! And don’t think for a minute that the Times Useless or any of the Scoundrels Feeding it the Sleeze and Smear Have this Community’s Interests at Heart; Hell No! They’re Feeling the Crunch of this Blog and their Only Possible Way Out is to Smear…And Do Something Cowards Do Best: Grasp at Straws!

We haven’t seen the Times Useless smear yet but we’ve heard about it. But we already published the same material several weeks ago; maybe the Times Useless can’t read. But Don’t Be Mistaken! They’re Not Dealing With Some Poor Bastid Who Can’t Fight Back or Won’t. If It’s War You Want…Bring It On! We’ve Got the Ammunition and the Troops! They’re on the RUN and like all rats, get real nasty when cornered!

But as the I Ching teaches, ‘always leave the enemy a retreat route.’ Here’s how: You Coeymanazis and members of the Deluca Losers Club can behave–and save– yourselves by finally acting like adult socialized and civilized human beings, something most of you in the opposition may not be very good at but if you give it a try, it just might work.

Ethics! What ethics?
The Teresi Legacy

In the meantime, we’ll be publishing the Geneology of Corruption that is the history of Ravena-Coeymans and stretches into the power centers of the Albany County administrations and even into the New York state court system, even the New York state Supreme Court. The players cover the entire alphabet from B-Biscone to W-Warner, and everything in between! 25 years of corruption and finagling and a New York State Supreme Court judge, who rose from village attorney to new heights while milking the locals for everything, and now his son is doing the same! We’ve acquired a stack of incriminating documents that we’ll soon be publishing: “Of Incest and Banjos!”

 

Times Union: You’ve Been Scooped! DumbAsses!

Stay Tuned!

HOW EMBARASSING! RCS Losers Club Clique Still Doesn’t Get It!

We’ll also have a commentary on the June 5th Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Board of Education Meeting that Was a Free-for-All!

Backstabbing and Cutthroating at Its Best.

Residents Voting for A Budget that Can’t Deliver the Cake!
Waddaya Gonna Do Now, Coeymanazis?
You got your Yes! Vote…Now Deliver!

Bet You’d Like a Facial!

Residents Really Pissed and Demanding that the “Cliques” Grow Up!

The Mother of Times Union Media Bullying.
They’ll report on anything but the real news!

Know What It Feels Like to Be BLED to DEATH?

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog now.

We have just acquired a copy of the so-called Supplemental Memorandum of Agreement between the Teachers Union a.k.a. the RCS Teachers Association and the RCS CSD and what we see in that document, submitted by the teachers union, is absolutely SCANDALOUS!

The Teachers Will Suck You Dry

If you vote YES! on the 2012-13 School Budget You’ll Know What it Feels Like to Be BLED TO DEATH!

Once you read this you will have to agree that the only way you can vote is NO! on the 2012-13 School Budget…and you’ll also have to agree that the teachers on the RCS Board of Education have to go!

You’ll Know Why When You Read This!

It’s all in the Supplemental Memorandum of Agreement offered by the teachers union and Matt Miller (remember him? the atheist teacher, also president of the RCS teachers union) and friends on April 17th, 2012. Before you misunderstand the document, it is a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) NOT a “contract,” and the terms of the agreement go into effect ONLY if the 2012-13 RCS School Budget is passed. So you must vote NO! to avoid being bled to death.

The teachers offer “a partial” = temporary “wage freeze” but subject to some pretty one-sided conditions (of course, the actual conditions were never made public for you to know!):

  1. According to the MOA, the Board must submit “a tax levy of 8.6%…or 6.8% based on efficiency measures that DO NOT NEGATIVELY IMPACT THE ASSOCIATION.” (#1 of the MOA). In other words, the teachers agree that you, the voters, can pay the 6.8%…everyone else can drop dead but the teachers association cannot be touched. Nice, right?
  2. The teachers’ 2010-2013 negotiated contract will be extended for two years, to 2015, with a 2.5% pay increase in each year of the extension. (#2 of the MOA).Wait a minute, this means the teachers get a raise when everyone else is cutting back! Now that’s a real sacrifice, voters!
  3. The teachers who initially do not receive the 2.5% per year pay increase will start to receive the 2.5% pay increase on February 1 [2013]  (#3 of the MOA).So, even those teachers who don’t initially get the pay increase get the pay increase on February 1st. Nice deal for the teachers! Pay me now, pay me later–win-win for the teachers! Do you like that, voters?
  4. On July 1, 2012, all members of the teachers union would still receive all increases in the 2010-13 contract. Another win-win for the teachers.
  5. There would be NO losses of full or part-time positions for teachers union members (#5 of the MOA). In other words, ALL teaching jobs would be safe, cuts would have to come from somewhere else but not from teachers! That’s really a sacrifice…ALL teachers’ jobs are safe, get raises, to hell with you, voter!
  6. Any savings from the Supplemental Agreement would be used only to offset tax levy but NOT to increase reserve funds or for any other purpose (#6 of the MOA). Only the teachers benefit, in other words.
  7. Number 7 of the MOA really gets us sick: “three sick days can be converted to personal days…above and beyond” (adding time off to the already generous time off without excuse)! Nice! Teachers get more paid  time off for themselves!

    What You’ll Be Screaming If the School Budget Passes

But the Teacher is Your Friend!

The key to stopping this ridiculous arrangement is to vote NO! on May 15th. If the budget is defeated these self-serving, shameless teachers’ demands will NOT go into effect! There is NO sacrifice of any kind in this Agreement, it’s a LOAN agreement and you, the voters, will have to pay for it plus interest!

 That’s the TRUTH behind your wonderful teachers! They are out for themselves and this proves it and you have to thank Matt Miller, David Dykeman, and Bridget Engelhardt of the RCS teachers association for cutting your throats, and the traitor teachers, teachers’ spouses and retired teachers (Engel, Whalen, O’Connor, Traver) on the Board of Education for pushing this monstrous deal through.

Loaded Dice:
Teachers Win=You Lose

If you vote NO! the teachers lose nothing and will continue according to the negotiated contract for 2010-2013.

We are including a scanned copy of the Supplemental Memorandum of Agreement for your reading “pleasure,” and so that you can see for yourself that everything we report on this issue is true and factual. Just click here to read the actual document: RCS CSD -Supplemental Memorandum of Agreement.

VOTE NO!
On May 15th

By the way, did you know that Howard ENGEL, a candidate for re-election to the RCS CSD Board of Education is a teacher married to a teacher, and is head of the teachers union at Averill Park? Did you know that candidate for election to the RCS CSD Board of Education Edward “Teddy” Reville is married to Engel’s sister? Sunilda Swan is also a former teacher. A. Whalen is a retired Teacher. Sitting board member James Latter’s wife is a math teacher at the RCS middle school. Particularly disturbing is the Board of Education meeting of November 1 at which residents call for the immediate resignation of sitting Board member Latter for breach of confidentiality and endangerment of a student, RCS Sports Association misuse of funds, questions regarding the RCS Sports Association’s non-profit status and 990 tax returns (non filed). O’Connor is a teacher. An you still don’t think the teachers are running the RCS BoE? In the name of fair play, get the teachers off the Board of Education!

Readers Corner: A Readers’ Contribution…

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog now.

A Reader Writes…

Mr Laszlo Polyak of Ravena submitted this article:

I guess I will be the advocate for the children, and RCS  High School seniors, who have commented on this blog and try to present it in a  way that both sides can understand.  First off, I have a business teaching degree so I have my bias too.  Second, there are good teachers all around not just greedy ones. [Editor’s Note: While I am still adamant that the seniors who commented in the way they commented were uncivil and inappropriate, I would be the last to overgeneralize and condemn an entire group, teachers or students.]

Let’s start from some carved in stone facts that are beyond the control of this community.  Two million people have moved out of NY in the last 10 years.  Locally this means there are 2,000 fewer people in our school district.  Fewer students means fewer teachers needed.  Example – sixty kids in third grade in any district. – six third- grade teachers.  Obviously at least of 3 teachers have to go.  That is beyond our control. There’s also the loss of two million dollars so there is even less money to support the situation. Less money from government sources (state and federal). Thank you! Governor Cuomo! The state legislators and the governor of the Empire State don’t seem to give a damn whether your schools sink or float! They just push it on to local governments and pass the ole buck! [Editor’s Note: Mr Polyak makes some good points here.]

The recent concert at the high school the principal said it best — everyone will be receiving some information and facts at home.  I really urge you all to read it carefully.  Do your homework and make a reasonable, informed decision when you vote.

If you want one fine example of a truly great teacher, you have Mr Wamsley.  As a music teacher he has done an excellent job with the kids in band and drama.  He entertains us with high school plays that are Broadway  quality.   He has been here only a few years.  There was talk when budget cuts were needed to let him go. The public stood up and backed him. [Editor’s Note: Music and language/literature are foundations of our culture. I would agree with Mr Polyak that a gifted teacher in the humanities is a must in any school.]

Perhaps I can explain some of the issues this way.  There are residents on fixed incomes  such as social security and retirement pensions.  Perhaps your grandma or grandpa.  They have not received an increase in their check for two years straight.  And yet their taxes have gone up and up and up.  Of course, they want the best education for their grandchildren, great grandchildren and children [But do they have to forego medicine or nutritious food to make that possible? There’s a moral dilemma here. The ed.].  But they are down to eating cat food.  How do you expect them to afford a 6.8% increase? Some of them, simply frustrated, are a portion of the two million who have left New York state. 

Take a walk down Main Street.  Again you’ll see fewer people there, fewer businesses than you did last year: this means less of a tax base and more of a burden on those still here.  Then we have three big industries.  plastics, railroad and the cement company.  The reason why we have this short fall is because they went to court and got their property values dropped 10 yrs ago and will do it again. [Editor’s Note: Excellent point! They’re paying almost no tax and yet you jump up and down with glee when they make a pitiable gift or donation! See thru the smokescreen!]  And they can afford to go to court.  Or just close their doors and move out.

Have you forgotten that we are in a depression, and I will call it that. We are in a depression its over the place.  I wrote a letter to the blogger questioning their motives about the kids blogs. I told the blogger that these are children/young adults. And they are trying to express their opinions.  In a week some people will go and vote Yes! and some will vote No!  And we will cross that bridge when we get there.  But we need to remind ourselves that it is OK to be conservative, it is OK to be liberal.  And we need to express ourselves without bitterness, frustration and hatred. The young people tried but sadly, their teachers were laughing and not explain to them the truth  The kids don’t lose  we do!  [Editor’s Note: I disagree. The young people were cheated of a very valuable lesson and experience; the teachers lost nothing. The community lost something, too!]  Are we name calling just because we have different viewpoints? Are we the children or the adults, the educators?  Every community has at least two viewpoints, and they can co-exist in harmony.  A healthy community might have hundreds of viewpoints and solutions, too, but can pull it all together and get the job done .

Perhaps when you write to the blogger, you should show some examples of solutions for the current situations and problems that we face. [Editor’s Note: Great advice, Mr Polyak!]  As I showed my leg brace for my cerebral palsy at the RCS board of Ed meeting, I did not bother to show my ID showing that I was a walker or I had to walk over a mile each way to my junior high and high schools.  I even attempted to link and show different school districts for comparisons and email sites too. There were NYS dept of Ed individuals who were present and willing to assist us to find solutions.  Some of them even came down and sat in the audience and took notes but to their disappointment.  If they have to take control it wont be the kids who will be hurt; it will be half the teachers and the Administrator. They noted that no one really placed the kids first.  And some of those followers of the blog are the Dept of Ed officials, as it is part of their job to monitor the situation.

I also set out examples of the YMCA taking over the pool.  It doesn’t matter whether the teacher’s contracts were handed in weeks before or 5 minutes before.  The teachers’ unions are not as powerful as you think they are, and they give nothing back. Some good teachers are struggling to make ends meet, too, and are not greedy at all!  They answer to a much more powerful organization, the NYSED who certify and license them; they can’t teach if their license is revoked. And NYSED answers to “us, the People”.  They are just sitting back, waiting to see what the district votes . You haven’t read about Rhode Island, where the state fired all their teachers.  And then a few months later all the teachers begged for their jobs back at 80% of what they had.

We are in depression; deal with it  people! Don’t believe me, please go on the internet and check.  There are people who have worked in the RCS school district for 10, 15, 20 years who are not teachers.  And they still make under $20,000 per year. [Editor’s Note: In the RCS central school district the teachers average out at about $63,000, up to over $70,000. You don’t want to know what Superintendant Elizabeth Smith is pulling out of the district!]  Some of them would have a better life living on welfare!

Again If anyone wants I will personally bring them to the Dept of Ed  personal so they can hear it straight from NYSED If its a No! votes them teachers and staff are gone and the kids still have sports and music. If it’s a Yes! vote the Dept of Ed  brings in its auditor line by line and the waste goes! This is what the Governor wants to see happen across the state because he does not want to see another 2 million residents leave the state!  The kids will not lose they will have music and sports at the bad or not so good teachers’expense! [Editor’s Note: Thank you! Mr Polyak! That’s a very important point you’ve just driven home. I hope the readers pick up on it. Teachers beware!]

On of the main  issues here is the inequity of employment.  Where and how we are going to fund programs.  And avoid another 2,000 people moving out of our community or a major company from shutting down or moving out.  So what is your solution?  I will always be out in the open. All are always welcome to knock on my door to discuss any issue and I will present them with the government records so they can draw their own conclusions.

Just stop dragging the kids in the middle they enough problems growing and finding their own identity; they don’t need to be made pawns in the battles waged by the adults!

Editor’s Comment: Thank you Mr Lazlo Polyak for a very reasonable and balanced article. We may not have agreed with everything you write but we do appreciate the time and effort you put into this. We are pleased to publish it with minor edits. Note: Mr Polyak is solely responsible for the content of his article; we have not checked the facts but are assured that Mr Polyak has done so.

Our position is and remains that the residents of the RCS Central School District should vote NO! on the budget and all other issues on the ballot on May 15, 2012.

Vote NO! on May 15th
