in Is It Feeding Time or is Court in Session?

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

Sometimes You Neet to Just Drop In to See How Things Really Operate…That’s What We Did on Thursday Morning, While Coeymans Court Was In Session. Looked More Like Feeding Time at the Local Pig Farm than a Courtroom.

All Rise! Court is in Session!

But before we get started, we’d like to say that residents of the town of Coeymans, home of the Coeymanazis, or even anyone driving through the town of Coeymans, should know three important words and their definitions:

  • Railroad: to steamroll, to to condemn a person in a hasty manner by means of false charges or insufficient evidence: The prisoner insisted he had been railroaded.
  • Retaliation: to take retributory action, especially by returning some injury.
  • Duplicity: treachery, double-dealing, revenge.

And did you know that the Coeymans police department is the only department in the country that gets to use banjo music as its siren alarm? Click here to listen to the Coeymanazi sirens.

Hear Banjos?
It’s the Coeymans Police!

Well, That’s What We Did on Thursday, August 23, 2012: We happened to be driving by the the double-wide that serves as the Coeymans town hall (the Coeymanazi lair), Coeymans police department (the enforcement arm of the Coeymanazis), and Coeymans town court (the administrative arm of the Coeymanazis). It was really worth the visit to see the local justice-under-investigation, George Dardiani,  perched up there, acting as if he were actually honorable, clean.

Tthe only one with any brains or cojones, or decency in that court seems to be retired justice Kevin Reilly,  who doesn’t take any backtalk from any scheister like Biscone! That grinning fool Dardiani wouldn’t qualify to be Reilly’s law clerk let alone preside in a criminal proceedings! Bravo! Retired Justice Kevin Reilly!).

Now Playing in Coeymans!

While watching the carnival sideshow called a court, a couple of recent events came to mind:

P. [Pervert] David Soares
Albany County D.A.

Why is it that the trumped up case against the president of the board of education is being dragged out so long? Either there’s a case or there’s no case! Either there’s evidence or there’s no evidence! It should be obvious even to the primitive provincial mind of the incumbent pervert David Soares that there’s no case and that he’s wasting taxpayer money pushing the issue. Coeymans is certainly not in the political or the financial position to be able to afford a drawn out trial, and it appears that in the interest of justice and fairness the BoE president is going to call everyone out into the public’s eye and make real asses of them, from the Albany County District Pervert Soares, to the lunatic “he called me fat” sociopath Josephine Tracey-O’Connor, to her psycho bully father Joseph Edward Tracey, to the unethical Coeymans town justice George Dardiani, who has to recuse himself from the case because of his breach of ethics and the fact that his wife is a school nurse in the RCS district.

Why is it that the psycho-bully Joe Tracey has disappeared from the radar now that the damage is being done? Why is it the psycho-bully Joe Tracey’s case is being heard in the Town of Bethlehem, where locals are unlikely to be able to follow it? Answer: The Coeymanazis take care of their own, even their junkyard dogs.

This is not Josephine O’Connor.

Sociopath Josephine Tracey-O’Connor is a good friend of Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” Deluca, the so-called police investigator with all the right connections who runs the Coeymans police department. Dirty-Hands Jerry is Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington’s keeper, Darlington’s wife, L. Darlington, is David Soare’s Secretary. Town justice George Dardiani is currently under investigation by the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct for multiple violations of the State Judicial Law and the Code of Judicial Ethics. It’s a mystery that he’s still on the bench in the first place! It seems everyone on the Coeymanazi side has read the script and are acting their parts in this drama.

How about you citizens and residents out there? Are you ready to foot the bill for a drawn out trial with all the bells and whistles. I’ll bet the Times Useless is just drooling over the opportunity to make asses of everyone in the RCS district…again. How’s it feel to be the clowns of the Capital District and the victims of putrid prostitute journalists like Dayelin Roman and her kind? Does it make you feel good all over?

Is This How You Want To Be Known?
The RCS Clowns?

Back to Coeymans: Here’s another question for you: How is it that a felony malicious mischief and grand theft case has been on Gregory Darlington’s desk since December 2011 and nothing’s been done? It was first assigned to Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca but for months Dirty-Hands Jerry sat on it and did nothing–this is a form of retaliation, the delaying tactic–until the frustrated businessowners called in the State Police and the Albany County Sheriff. The Sheriff’s people jumped on Darlington to get his ass moving on the case. So Darlington reassigns the case to another investigator who…has been sitting on it.  You’re paying Darlington more than $91,000 a year to take orders from his subordinate Dirty-Hands Jerry (who makes about $29,000 a year as police investigator) and Dirty-Hands Jerry is getting his orders from a Bruno, Biscone, Persico, or Albano…they’re all intermarried and in some sort of incestuous relationshipAnd they all want a chunk of YOUR money, lives, and self-respect…and you’re handing it to them!!!!!

Update on the felony case before Coeymans town justice George Dardiani: The criminal defendant didn’t show up in court today and so his attorney, Michael Biscone–Yeah, the same Biscone, younger brother of John T. Biscone, and the godfather the late John J. Biscone–when told his client was going to be brought in, tells the judge–that’s the respect Biscone has for the law and for the court–that he’s not bringing his client in. That’s Biscone telling the JUDGE what’s going to be done in this town. Anyone hear about contempt of court? How about you, judge George Dardiani, do you have the balls to hold Michael Biscone and his client in contempt of court? Go on, Dardiani, show us your balls!

Judge George Dardiani’s Balls
He’s got three: a blue one, a pink one, and a white one.

This sounds like another complaint for the State Commission on Judicial Conduct and one for the Appellate Division, Committee on Professional Standards, the  New York State agency responsible for disciplining corrupt attorneys  like Michael Biscone,  doesn’t it? Did I say “corrupt attorney,” Mikey? Isn’t there a conflict of interest of sorts where you are working as village counsel and practicing at the same time before the village and town courts? Seems to me there’s a section in both the judicial code of ethics and in the ethics code for attorneys but I’ll have to check. It does seem reasonable to assume you’re playing both sides of the fence, though. Not that town justice Dardiani would know anything about the codes of ethics. And you wouldn’t even know how to spell the word, would you Mikey? By the way, did you sell the Village of Ravena your dirt yet?

Why is it that when a couple of mischief-makers spray a tag [Editor’s Note: “tagging” is when graffiti artists spray paint their initials on a wall.] on Michael Biscone’s garage door this past week, the entire Coeymans police department is activated and combing the neighborhood for the perps? But when anyone else needs them to do any law enforcement, they have to call in the Sheriff’s department or the State boys? Hint: Your name has to end in a vowel like BrunO, BisconE, PersicO, AlbanO, NerI or you have to be on their list.  but local business owners can’t even get a complaint investigated! Are you following all of this?

And we all know about part-time Coeymans police officer Kerry Thompson being promoted to be Gregory Darlington’s administrative assistant at more than $30 an hour. This is the same Kerry Thompson who, after our psycho-bully Joseph Tracey, Josephine O’Connor’s father, threatened a local business owner and her family, refused to take her complaint! Well, that’s turned into another potential  multimillion dollar lawsuit against the Coeymans police department. Formal Written Complaints and Notice of Claim have already been served on the illustrious but idiotic corps of Coeymanazis. Are you ready to pull out your wallets to support the morons in the town of Coeymans boys club?

Tommy DUH!-lan

And in the midst of all of this the one and only (thank God for that) Thomas E. Dolan, of fill-out-the-absentee-ballot fame, the wonderful director of the Choices program in Ravena, helping all of the poor and disadvantaged in our town, is the Coeymans town board liason to the Coeymans police department. But when asked if the police department had a policy or procedure for handling citizen’s complaints, he didn’t know. Fancy that! But now he’s running for the newly formed NYS senate seat for the 46th district (We’ve written articles on this on this blog. Just search for Dolan. Or Google Tom Dolan and you’ll get our articles, too!). But guess what his campaign slogan is: “No Fracking” Now that’s a really important local concern, isn’t it? Now look at Dolan’s work as a Coeymans town board member and ask yourself this question: “What can I hope he’ll do if I make him a senator?”  Sorry, I didn’t mean to make you vomit.

So, RCS citizens and residents, we have the RCS Bottle Blitz run by none other than Cathy Long Deluca, wife of Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca, who has yet to account for the take from the first so-called Bottle Blitz, and is using the RCS high-school cafeteria as her collection point. Has Bottle Blitz Cathy submitted any paperwork for using the cafeteria? Who is endorsing Deluca’s activity? Is it an official RCS CSD program? Is she paying for the use of the cafeteria (insurance, cleaning, utilities)?  If not, WHY NOT?

And then there’s the RCS Sports Association. I won’t waste any more time now on them. Just read the many articles on this blog to find out what a criminal bunch that is. And guess who’s behind it all. Most of the names end in a vowel. Get it?

And the teachers clique on the board of education, A. Whalen, Howard “Bray” Engel, James Latter, Edward “Teddy” Reville, all want to give it away. They’ve voted as a block to oppose any of the BoE president’s efforts to demand accountability, to clean up the waste, to clean up the administration. They’ve crucified any board member who pushes for accountability and responsibility in spending taxpayer money. Luckily the newly elected board has placed the teachers clique in the minorty and this is killing them and their backers because they’ve lost control of the more than $41 million school budget they thought they had in their pockets, that they pulled every trick in the book to get on the ballot and voted in.  Their response and that of the Coeymanazies: frame the board of education president. Remember the three keywords we mentioned at the top of this article.

And you fell for it, RCS residents and citizens. Now fix your clown makeup, your eyeliner is running with your tears!

Isn’t it odd that with all the criminals running this town the one person not on the take, not in someone’s pocket, the only one really who’s not getting some payment or benefit from his work and dedication, an elected official who is unpaid and working for the benefit of the RCS central school district, is being dragged through the mud by the rats in the pack. Aren’t you ashamed you’re not doing something about it, RCS residents, citizens, neighbors?

Shame on you, RCS!
For Letting All of This Happen!

Tom Dolan for State Senator? Are you serious?!?

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

Talk About Arrogance and Very Big [Bald] Heads! Tom Dolan Must Have Trouble Getting Into His Garage With A Head That Big! But We Think He’s Biting Off A Lot More Than His Mealy Mouth Can Chew.

Keep This Wisdom In Mind, Tommy-Boy!
Get Real! If You Can’t Walk in Coeymans
You Can’t Run for Senate!

We have an idea: Why don’t we all just sign a bunch of blank ballots and hand them to the party bosses. That will take care of citizens having to make choices.

Oh! And speaking of Choices, Tom. We’ve heard there may be  a bit of conflict of interest and vote manipulation going on. Isn’t Choices supposed to assist the marginalized and the underserved? Not to take advantage of them in the tradition of the Albany County Democratic machine. We’ve also heard that you, Tom Dolan, know a lot about getting the vote from the marginalized and underserved, that you  know all about filling out absentee ballots, don’t you, Tom? You’ve done it before and got your fingers burnt. Right?

So now the proverbial shit has hit the fan. According to the Daily Mail:

“As a town councilman in Coeymans, Dolan said that local lawmakers “get immediate feedback from people, which makes you think twice about the laws you pass. You see an immediate effect on people’s lives. It’s not so theoretical.”

“Dolan said that is a lesson he would take with him to the State Senate.

“Describing himself, Dolan said he is “deliberate. I look at all sides of an issue.” He also said he is “approachable. I listen. I am willing to take in new information.”

Can you believe this Dolan character? Does he think we’ve all come down with the last shower? Does he really think he can continue peeing down our legs and telling us it’s just ice water? No way! Tommy boy!

Well, in this series of articles we’re going to expose how Thomas E. Dolan has practiced what he preaches. It ain’t pretty.

Maybe instead of the campaign gimme-yer-vote trash-talk Tommy Dolan can answer just a couple of questions that need a local perspective, a good understanding of local conditions to give a convincing answer. No high-brow bullshit, just plain language explanations why things are the way they are right in his own back yard, and why he hasn’t stepped out to fix them as Coeymans town board member? Here are just a few items for rat-boy to gnaw on:

The Coeymans Police Department. Are we, the citizens and residents of this community, of the new District 46, to believe that you, Thomas E. Dolan, are not politics as usual, when, in a time when everyone is scraping and struggling, you vote to give the Coeymanazis in the Coeymans P.D., $1000 of taxpayer money as petty cash? Aren’t you aware what petty cash is? It’s a maximum of about $100 for small items, small expenses. They already had $300 in petty cash. Is that how you’re going to handle finances and economies in the state Senate?

When you voted to hand the Coeymans police $1000 to play with, did you also hand them a procedure for accountability? We don’t think you did, did you? No. Just hand them $1000 for petty cash and ask no questions. Is that how you’re going to get accountability in state office? Is that your idea of accountability for the public’s money? That really sucks, Tom. It’s really irresponsible and we don’t need another someone that irresponsible in the legislature.

Kerry Thompson. Kerry Thompson has a full-time position with the Albany County Sheriff’s Department. Kerry Thompson works part-time as a Coeymans police officer. Kerry Tompson is married to Coeymans’police chief Gregory Darlington’s sister. You, Tom Dolan, are the Coeymans town board liaison person to the Coeymans police department. The Coeymans pays Darlington more than $91,000 a year plus benefits to fill the administrative position of police chief. You, Tom Dolan, voted on July 23rd to make Kerry Thompson a lieutenant in the Coeymans P.D., an administrative position and assistant to Gregory Darlington, and to pay Thompson more than $31 an hour for less-than-part-time employment (Thompson’s not going to give up his Sheriff’s department job so it had to be part-time in Coeymans). If that is the way you are going to represent financial responsibility in the state Senate, forget it, Tommy! Your record of corruption in Coeymans is enough for us!

Now that you’re padding your friends’ wallets with wages 4x the minimum wage in this state, what have you done for the struggling families in the RCS community? Got any jobs for them? What about the unemployed in the RCS community, got any $30/hour jobs for them?

Still on the subject of the Coeymans Police Department. When asked recently about the town of Coeymans policy and procedure for processing citizens’ complaints against employees of the Coeymans P.D., you stated explicitly that you didn’t think one existed. Well, one does exist, and we foiled it and what a surprise. Not only does one exist, and not only is it not enforced, it is going to subject the Coeymans P.D. to lawsuits and prosecution because it’s a mess! Even your little goon Kerry Thompson, you know, the one you just voted to be Darlingtons administrative assistant at more than $30 an hour, violated it and he’s the one you’ve made the 2nd in command at the Coeymans P.D. Is that an example of how you stay informed? Is that an example of how you’re going to look out for the citizens and residents of the new District 46? So far, your record sucks, Tom!

Well, if your performance as Coeymans town board liaison to the Coeymans P.D. is anything we can go on, it looks pretty bad, Tom. Is that how you’re going to stay on top of important issues affecting your community, your consitutents? Is that how you stay informed, Tom? If you can’t stay informed in the town of Coeymans how in hell do you expect to do it in the state senate?

Now, back to the community, you’ve been involved in the RCS community for how long? What exactly have you done? Have you actually walked down Main Street in Ravena lately? Noticed anything bizarre about how quiet it is? That’s because most of the businesses are closed. You’re talking about infrastructure, Mr Dolan! So let’s talk about infrastructure. We’ve already given two very good examples of how you manage financial crises and the public’s interests. What have you done, really, to keep the businesses in the village and town? Have you supported the business organizations like the GREATER COEYMANS RAVENA COMMUNITY BUSINESS GROUP? What exactly have you done as a sitting member of the Coeymans town board to promote local businesses? You’ve played a lot of political games, we know, but what exactly have you done to benefit the business infrastructure in the town of Coeymans? Let us help you with the answer, Tom: NOTHING!

You and your kind serve yourselves. You and your connections have done nothing to serve the community and everything to help your political cronies.

We can also see through the crude tactic of trying to ride your dark horse into the state senate on the coattails of an emotional issue like hydrofracking. Yes, we read the item in the News Herald rag and we’re not as stupid as you’d like to think we are. So you “host” a picnic and feed a bunch of freeloaders…the way to their vote is through their stomachs, is that what you think, Tom. Not through their heads, through their stomachs. Like a bunch of dogs, right Tom? Well, the truth is, we don’t need to vote for Tom Dolan to get the issue on the ballot. Let’s just separate the two, for a moment. If you’re really interested in banning hydrofracking for the public good, you don’t need to pin it to your campaign. Just do it because it’s right. Let’s keep the two separate and honest. You’re playing a political game, Tom, and the RCS community, the 46th district won’t like becoming your pawns, your tools. You have a record, a pattern, and that’s what’s going to do your talking for you, and it’s what’s going to keep you out of the state senate, too!

We’re assembling a list of your sordid connections throughout the county and we’ll be publishing them in future articles covering your misguided attempt at spreading your putrid corruption.

This article will be continued. Please stay tuned, it gets better.

You stink, Tom Dolan!
You’ve Been Outed!

We Didn’t Know…We Asked…We STILL Don’t Know!!!

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

This RCS District and Community Plays or Appears to Have Been Playing Pretty Loosey-Goosey With Money Raised…What’s Worse, When Questions Are Asked of Those In A Position To Answer…We Are Ignored!

“Ignore” is the Beginning of Ignorance

Why is this, we have to ask? Why is it that Mr James Latter, a sitting member of the RCS board of education,  having been asked a number of times about the not-for-profit status of the RCS Athletic/Sports Association, about its accountability and reporting on its revenues and outlays, on its federal tax filings and disclosures. Latter, despite having been an officer in the association, ignored the questions and continues to ignore the questions. (That’s nothing new, Latter never actually responded to the allegations of his violation of student-parent confidentialities; he certainly didn’t resign at that time as was demanded by several residents. He’s still taking up space on the board of education.) This seems to be commonplace in the previous Coeymanazi-run regime: just ignore the questions. (Cathy Deluca, now almost three weeks after the famous RCS Bottle Blitz has still not disclosed how much money was taken in!)

Now comes the revelation that the “old” RCS Sports Association has been disbanded,  and a “new” RCS Sports Association has been started. But, again, no one seems to know who it is and no one in the office of the Superintendent of Schools can provide any answers regarding its operating status, its registrations, its tax status, its officers, etc. But the “new” Association is allegedly operating an Indian  football camp, the camp is contacting parents (apparently using a list kept by school administration), parents are allegedly sending in checks for $75 to cover participation, the camp is allegedly on school property, and the Superintendent of Schools, Ms Elizabeth Smith, has no answers. No one even knows who the “new” RCS Sports Association is! Much less even regarding the “new” Association’s insurance status!!! How can this be?!?

The School District and Organizations
Must Be Held Accountable!

We think it is imperative that the School District, the Board of Education, the “old” Sports Association and the “new” Sports Association, as well as residents and parents be well aware that just because the “old” association has been dissolved and a “new” association is taking its place does not make the old association’s  duties and obligations vaporize. The “old” association still has some serious taxation, organization and accounting questions to answe,r and to produce its closing and final balance sheet, just as any organization accepting and soliciting money from the public and using public facilities on the pretense of being non-partisan and non-profit. The question that still remains to be answered is, “What did you do with the money?” And Mr James Latter can be very helpful in getting that and other questions answered. He hasn’t yet but maybe if a Notice of Claim or a lawsuit is filed, he’ll be more willing to spill his guts. What do you think, Jimmie?

Until those questions are satisfactorily and completely answered, no “new” RCS Sports Association or Athletics Association should be allowed to operate in any way whatsoever in the RCS school district, in the RCS schools, or on RCS school properties! Citizens, residents, taxpayers, parents have the absolute right to know what the “old” RCS Sports or Athletic Association was doing and how, and needs the oft repeated but still unanswered questions answered. NOW! Mr James Latter knows about these things and so do the organizers of the “new” RCS Sports Association and the RCS CSD board of education, the RCS CSD Superintendent of Schools, the RCS CSD attorney and business manager have the duty, obligation, responsibility to summon those “old” crooks and the “new” organizers to answer all questions about their organizations. NOW!

The RCS Superintendent of Schools Elizabeth Smith’s responses to residents’ questions about the “new” RCS Sports Association were far from satisfactory. Answers like, “I expect that…”  or “I don’t know…” are simply unacceptable. Why don’t you know, Ms Smith? Isn’t it your job or the district business manager’s job to know or for the school administrator to know? Or is this sports association game going to be played by the same loosey-goosey rules as the last one, and then the hocuspokus will happen: those responsible go South (as in South to Florida…rumor is that the Delucas are planning a trip down that way).

Going South, Jerry?

One point is crystal clear: NO organization should be operating on school property, NO organization should be appropriating the school district’s name or moniker, NO organization should be directly marketing to parents or residents as if it were acting for or on behalf of the district, and NO organization should be soliciting funds or contributions as if it were doing so for or on behalf of the district, a district school, students, or a school organization UNLESS it has produced all certifications, registrations, documents, etc. as to its organization, its officers, its tax status, its finances, etc. for examination by the entire board of education, and unless it is subjected to the approval of the board of education, who will then accept the application on behalf of the district. Of course, the Superintendent of Schools, the RCS school district attorney, the district business manager would all be called to provide their opinions and recommendations before the board of education would vote on the organization.

It is apalling that to date, no one in the RCS district offices can give any straight answers. Moreover, it is embarassing that the residents’ elected representatives, the RCS board of education, has been unceremoneously sidelined and by-passed while the “old” regime and the “old” association did as they pleased, and then when they were called out, disappeared.

The non-teachers, citizen-resdient members of the new Board of Education summed up the future route to be followed: As BoE member Mr Lukens pointed out: “With regard to groups using taxpayers’ property; school grounds which are owned by the taxpayers and they [the taxpayers], I believe, they do have the right to know. And I believe we should make a strong effort, before we allow any group to use taxpayer property–it is our duty–to make sure that they have a certificate of insurance that the public can see on our website, and have all the appropriate paperwork in order just like all of us have to do if we want to do business.” And as the BoE president, Mr Vadney concluded, “Paperwork must be in order just like anyone doing business. I totally agree with you; we went through this last year. Before anyone comes on district property all paperwork should be in the district’s hand, must be checked out and verified before they are allowed on the property. If this is not happening, then we must do it. We must secure our liability. It’s for everyone, no matter who it is.”

Mr James Latter: Come clean! Produce the closing financial report and statement on the “old” RCS Sports Association. Whoever–we don’t know yet for certain who they are–probably the same group as before but different names–the “new” RCS Sports Association is, they must appear before the RCS board of education, introduce themselve, produce their registrations, certifications, filings, approvals, etc. BEFORE they start operating football camps, concessions, or anything else in this school district! Superintendent of Schools, Ms Elizabeth Smith, get your paperwork in order and ensure that all necessary and required paperwork is on file, verified, and confirmed by the RCS CDS District offices, AND approved by the RCS CDS Board of Education.

Still outstanding is a response on a decade of overpayment of school employees due to inadequate checks and balances, and the fact that no one ever come forward to admit they were receiving more than they should have received! Crooks! This came out in a recent scathing audit report of the district. No one’s sure if or how the money can be recouped! By the way, that was playing loosey-goosey with your money, dear readers. Still no answers.

Of course, the teachers’ clique represented by Whalen, Reville, and Engel opposed any accountability of the RCS Sports Association. Was that a surprise? BTW, the Coeymanazi contingent was conspicuously absent from the meeting. Have they gone underground? Matt Miller seems to have dropped of the face of the earth, too! (Maybe Matt “the Mutt” Miller is stocking shelves at Shop’n Save, trying to make up the $10 grand he lost when his cushy and illicit “energy manager” position was not renewed. No more double-dipping, Mattie!)  R.J. D’Esposito must have had a gladiator movie to watch or was he quilting that nite? Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca and Bottle-Blitz Cathy may have absconded with the bottle and can money to Florida. Who knows? Who cares? Lorraine Misuraca (Lorraine Misuraca should not be confused with Jenafer “Jena” Misuraca, VP of the PBC PTO for some 5 years) might be organizing a shadow PTO or even a “new” RCS Sports Association. (Will Lorraine M. ever pose again with Cathy Deluca, we wonder?) What do you think?

Do Whalen, Reville, Engel, Latter really think it’s in the public’s best interest, for the good of the public, “for the kids,” to refuse to make those organizations doing business on RCS school property accountable, answerable for their activities? Is that how Whalen, Reville, Engel, Latter and the teachers clique represent the public’s interests and students’ interests on the board of education! We’re not surprised that James Latter wants to keep things quiet. But Whalen, Reville, Engel and their arguments and what they were saying on July 24 certainly sounded like they wanted to continue the loosey-goosey rules and not ask questions. They’re very loyal to their Coeymanazi handlers, as we know well.

P.s. Jerry Deluca, perhaps you can answer this question: Is it a misdemeanor or a felony for a police department employee to retrieve personal information on citizens using police computers and dbases if it’s done for personal agendas and not for an official investigation? Also, isn’t it the law that felons lose their state pensions? Cathy Deluca: It may be unlawful for you to use an email that misleads recipients to think that you are representing police business (like cathy@policeaffairs.xxx, for example).  Just asking.

Is that your final answer?
Regis wants to know.

Poll: The Coeymans Police Department…Or Not?

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

Most Citizens/Residents Are Very Tolerant of Police Tactics Either Because They Have Some Reason To Believe They Can Get Some Special Consideration or, More Likely, Because They Feel Intimidated and Fear Reprisals, Retaliation.

Have You Been Abused, Brutalized by the Coeymanazis?
Do you really feel safe and protected?

This Poll Explores Your Feelings on the Coeymans Police Department And How You Feel About Filing a Complaint About Police Misconduct in Your Community.

Got Petty Cash?

Highlights from the June 26th Coeymans Town Board Meeting: The Coeymans Police Department says that $300 petty cash is not enough. They want more. How much more? Try $1000 “petty” cash! The Board approves the request. Are they completely out of order or What? That puts new meaning on the words “petty cash!” Petty cash is supposed to be a small amount of discretionary funds in the form of cash used for expenditures where it is not sensible to make any disbursement by cheque, because of the inconvenience and costs of writing, signing and then cashing the cheque. Well, that certainly solves the paper trail problem, doesn’t it? (According to most sources $100 is sufficient for most small businesses…but then maybe the Coeymans Police Department is moving up and is now big business, Coeymanazis Inc.!)

To Serve (Ourselves)
&
Protect (Our Godfather)

And did you know that the Coeymans Police Department has the authority now to impound any vehicle at their discretion (not that they know what the word “discretion” means)?!? And they’ve raised the per day impound lot charge, too!

Please Participate in the Poll Below and Leave A Comment or A Confidential Message at RCS Confidential.

But before you go to the poll questionnaire, we thought you’d enjoy this little  this cartoon scenario:

Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca , Josephine O’Coonor, and David Soares are out on the town and sitting at the bar at Yanni’s chewing the chitlins, and Harold Warner crooning in a corner! Then police chief Greg Darlington saunters in with his wife, Mrs Darlington (Soares’ secretary) and Nancy Warner, while Hal Warner’s court clerk sachés in and takes a seat at the end of the bar, from where she can keep an eye on her ex-squeeze, village justice Hal. You don’t get the connection yet? It’s coming. John “Junior” Biscone pops his head out from the kitchen where he’s doing pasta with John Bruno. Michael Biscone’s washing dishes as his brother, Junior, adds a couple of dirty pans to Michael’s pile. Greg Teresi slinks in with dad Joe Teresi, who does a karaoki number from the Supremes, and then they find a corner table where they hold royal court, right under a picture of their Godfather, John J. Biscone! Some ARANY and DEC thugs are having some heads down discussions with Josephine Dority (Biscone), who is trying to sell them a bridge, when a couple of NYS assemblymen start dancing the “Deluca Fat Lady Dance,” later joined by Soares and Mrs Darlington. Ryan Johnson and Kerry Thompson are checking IDs and harassing guests at the door, collecting cover charges. Deluca has Peter McKenna cuff a RCS business person to a table leg so he’s immobilized, but McKenna later denies he did it. You still don’t get the connections? Be patient. Donna Leput-Hommel, R.J. D’Esposito, Melanie Lekocevic, Dayelin Roman, Scott Waldman, Sarah Engel, are all lighted up by their iPhones (the source of their “brilliance”), busily texting on FaceBook, while off to the side we see Betsy Smith, Brian Bailey, and Matt Miller being served with summons and complaints. Through the window we see a group of RCS residents huddled together, raising their tin cups for a couple of coins to get something to eat, while Cathy Long Deluca suggests they go out and collect bottles and Supervisor Stephen Flach passes them, looking the other way, hurrying to join Soares, Deluca, and the ‘in-crowd,’ as they sit down to a sumptuous pasta-and-sausage-feast with chief cookers Biscone and Bruno, who toss some garlic bread over to Johnson and Thompson, who greedily gobble it. Fr James Kane (RC Church of St Patrick) blesses the meal and gives a short sermon on adultery and hypocrisy…and how to make it work for you. George Dardiani is the head waiter tonite serving cooked justice from the steam table, as he eyes Joe Tracey lumbering from table to table obediently collecting the “tips” for the “servers”, while saving the scraps for himself. As he makes his way to the ladies room “Dirty-Hands Jerry” (Wait a minute! Did he just slip some of that tip into his pocket? It’s OK. Tracey will be blamed.) DHJ gives Joe Tracey a kick, and Johnson and Thompson chuckle gleefully. The Blogger is sitting in an out-of-the way booth with a couple of collaborators, taking notes, as the scandalous predators nervously look around, hoping to identify him or her.

Jerry Deluca

 Dirty-Hands Jerry, Greg Darlington, and David Soares leave the bar arm-in-arm, while David Soares tucks a check into Darlington’s pocket, while Dirty-Hands Jerry winks appreciatingly to the NYS assemblymen, who are still doing the Deluca “Fat-Lady Dance” on the dancefloor with Josephine O’Connor and Joe Tracey.

 The present situation in Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk has become a democrat political machine over the past 30-50 years. It’s time for a change and the best change may be to switch to a grassroots party that represents the community and not national party lack of principles.

Here’s the Poll:

David Soares

Remember in November: This man, P. David Soares, Albany County District Attorney, MUST GO! Replace David Soares!!! Soares has allowed his office to be misused, tainted, and compromised and has failed in his duty to properly and diligently prosecute corruption and misconduct in your police department His record of selective prosecution and his visually challenged (his ethnicity and background may be a major stumbling block to his vision) view of law and order are troubling. (Did you know that Soares was born in Brava, Cape Verde, an island off the coast of West Africa?) His connections with Albany Law School already make him a prime suspect for being a member of the Albany boys club (Albany Law School is a legend as a prep school for the boys club) with its love and history of corruption and dishonesty. Does it surprise you that Albany would be only a bigger Coeymans with people like Soares in the office that oversees law enforcement in the county?

Another One Who Needs to be Voted OUT!

Tom Dolan
NOT for Senator

Where has a 2:1 Democrat-to-Republican ratio gotten this community so far? Right into the hands of the Coeymanazis like Gerald “Dirty-Hands” Deluca, the Biscones, the Brunos, the Teresis, the Rotellos, the Darlingtons (He’s just a toy; his name doesn’t end in a vowel). Time for change? You betcha! But this time it’s gotta be change for the better!

But which is the real Tom Dolan?


And
Tom Dolan is NOT the solution; he’s part of the bigger problem in RCS! It’ll be sheer disaster if you put him in the NYS senate!

Thank you for participating in the Coeyman’s Police poll. We also hope you enjoyed our little cartoon scenario, too. Let’s get together and clean up the community!

Thank You!

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

A Fable of a Swimming Pool and Acquatic Sports and other Horror Stories

The Legend is That a Former President of the RCS Board of Education and his Cronies had to Slip it to the RCS Residents to Get the Pool (Hidden) in the Budget.

The original propaganda:

The Myth: "For the Kids"

The real future (?):

The Reality: what the kids are going to be paying for (you are already)! The pool and the money will dry up!

Double-dipping? No, not in the pool this time. But read on… I may be losing it but I always thought that you could do only one job at a time and get paid for that job.

Are you OK with this, too? He is!

Well, it appears that RCS teachers may be nominated for a Nobel prize in ingenuity: They’ve figured out how to do at least two jobs at the same time and get paid for BOTH–also known as “double-dipping”! Seems that an annual salary of about $70+K just isn’t enough (plus summers off!), so one prominent teachers association official has a second job, apparently done at the same time and the same place as his teaching job (he teaches only two periods a day so he can take care of “association business”?), and while he does his teachers association finagling. He gets an additional $10+K for the “second job,” which is also at the same school during the same time he’s being a “teacher.” I sure hope he’s not teaching morality or ethics! How’s that work, I wonder?  Nice racket RCS taxpayers. Less teaching load, same money, second job done at the same time, an extra 10K?  Not bad! Question: Who’s his supervisor on job 1 and who on job 2? Any answers? Let’s get the real story and publish some figures!

 Abuse? (Control yourself, now. We’re talking about verbal abuse.)

Is this alright?

Now back at the pool, another character is hard at work…Has anyone investigated? A while back, an angry parent, a neighbor, in fact, shared with me the ordeal that the children were enduring at the hands of a “swimming coach,” that was so outrageous she was contemplating legal action. She allegedly brought the complaint to the middle school where her daughter was on the swim team and was apparently being verbally abused (Note! verbally! Here’s a site on Verbal Abuse.) by the coach/instructor. The neighbor’s daughter was not the only one to experience the technique of the coach, others had, too. Isn’t that a form of bullying?  Information is that same teacher is still there and nothing much has changed. Why not?

Helmet concussion in school sports? Is this a test? There have been numerous cases of long-term damage to the brain in school and professional sports due to even apparently minor impact to the head, even when wearing a helmet. This has ushered in a number of research studies and mandates for safer helmet design. (See the Boston University Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy.) There’s a good article on the subject regarding highschool sports by Jonah Leher, The Fragile Teenage Brain: An in-depth look at concussions in high school football, in Grantland (January 12, 2012)  (click here for a pdf copy Jonah Lehrer-Fragile Teenage Brain). So, parents, what do you think about a bunch of teacher/coaches bouncing footballs off your kid’s helmet at practice? Isn’t that a form of bullying, too? Think they might have gotten a few knocks on the field? Or are they just stupid by birth? Ask the kids about this. Any Answers?

Addendum: Now tell me we’re not timely. On April 12 WMHT aired a Health Link segement with Benita Zahn and guests on the topic of–Guess what? TBI, traumatic brain injury in school athletes. Details at Traumatic Brain Injury

Think about this: You are electing teachers or retired teachers to the Board of Education; their friends and buddies, also teachers, at the school want this and that, and $$more money$$. The Teachers Association brings the requests to the BoE and the former and still teachers give them what they want. If it’s proposal against a teacher or the interests of the Teachers Association, they simply stonewall. Government as usual, do you think? That’s a question: Do YOU think? Do you put the fox in the henhouse to make sure the fox doesn’t have a party where the main course is…chicken? Apparently, YOU do! Solution: Keep the teachers and the Teachers Association in the school where they belong; put parents and business people on the Board of Education. Teachers and Teachers Association still have the opportunity to address the board in public session. Fair enough, isn’t it?

One thought keeps popping up in my mind: How is it that this is going on in such a small place, and everyone seems to know about it but nobody is coming forward–at least not out in the open–with it. Why are we getting this stuff in confidential conversations? Where is the news media? Where are the parents? Where are the watchdogs?

Maybe the Times Useless and its pulp fiction writers and the Daily Mail should be going after sharks instead of minnows, after the habitual perps and pervs and not just after some poor bastard who disputes his taxes. Waddaya think?

If you find this blog informative and useful, send a link to a friend. You’ll be doing everyone concerned a public service! Really!

Sports Scandal Quiz: RCS Sports Association?

Scandal, Not Cuts, Threatens to Wreck RCS Sports

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT IT JUST COULDN’T GET WORSE—IT DOES!

Whenever the perps want to jerk your heart strings they talk about “our children,” or “doing right for the children.” Well, according to some accounts it seems that all the concern for the kids is actually a smoke screen and the kids are just the pawns in something much more sinister that is going on, and apparently has been going on for quite some time now. You’ll be surprised to find out who’s involved–but then, maybe not. We’re working on something now but are waiting for some confirming facts. It’s enough to get your blood boiling, so stay tuned for the real story about the real players in the RCS Sports Association.

What we’ll be looking at why there’s no transparency in the RCS Sports Association organization, including the reasons for:

No bylaws, statutes, organizational constitution: So far ZERO records produced /published disclosures.

No election of officers and names: So far ZERO records produced /published disclosures.

No records/Minutes of Meetings: So far ZERO records produced /published disclosures.

No Financial Records/Disclosure: So far ZERO records produced /published disclosures.

Question: Since it appears that the RCS Sports Association is not registered in Albany County as a non-profit organization, have they filed any financial disclosures or tax returns?

Registration as Non-Profit Organization: So far ZERO records produced /published disclosures disclosures.

UPDATE: According to NCCS National Center for Charitable Statistics the RCS Sports Association does not appear to be a registered non-profit organization in Albany county.

Records of Taxation/Financial Reporting: So far ZERO records produced /published disclosures.

Question: Does the RCS Sports Association pay its taxes? Have they filed any returns–ever?

Do you know who these people are? What they’re doing? How they’re doing it? To whom they are reporting or are responsible? What they do with the money? Who’s doing it?  Does the Director know? Does DA P. David Soares know? (Well, does he, Mrs Darlington?)  Does the IRS know? Does the FBI know? Do YOU know? Why is the Daily Mail  so quiet on all of this? (We do know the News Herald has been faithful and diligent in keeping tabs, thanks to Hilary Hawke (Email Hilary!). Maybe it’s time for a new editor at the Daily Mail? One who doesn’t have certain connections and friendships that might appear to compromise objective journalism? Right, Melanie Lekocevic? (Ask Melanie!)) It’s New Baltimore tax dollars at stake here, too! So Greene county is also affected.

We suppose it would be reasonable to expect boardmember William McFerran (employed with NYS Health Dept, Health Prog Admin 2, $88K yr (Source: SeeThroughNY)), who–according to his Board of Education candidate’s statement– has served as treasurer of the RCS Sports Association for at least the past three years, to be able to respond to some of the above questions.  So what’s up, Bill? Why all the cloak-and-dagger?

Ever ask that question?

To be continued…

Other irons in the fire:

We’re also looking at how someone making less than $30K a year before taxes can afford to own several properties in Ravena-Coeymans. We can’t mention any names yet but were getting the facts.

Divorce and marriage records are public record information. But do you think we can find any on a couple of the RCS morality squad? If they’re Catholic, they’d also need an annulment–not very likely, though, under the circumstances. (But in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany, anything’s possible! Ask Fr James Kane (Church of St Patrick, Ravena).)  So we’re continuing our research and we’ll report back on this blog.

We’ve also heard that Ms Cathleen “Cathy” Deluca uses an e-mail cathy@policeaffairs for certain apparently unofficial correspondence. Is she on the police force now? Has she been hired as a “police investigator,” too? Is this true, Cathy? (Yeah! The “police affairs” didn’t get past us, either ;))

If you do, now’s the time to let us know! Send a comment below.

NOTE: If you don’t want your comment published, please indicate Confidential or For Your Eyes Only in the first line. We will respect your request (unless, of course,  you’re one of the perps/pervs)!

We may be needing these.

 Spread the word, send a link to this blog! Protect yourself and your loved ones!
