There’s a F*&$%@% Elephant in the Room!!!

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

When we started this blog it was never intended to focus on the backwater communities of Ravena and Coeymans, much less be dominated by the corruption and evil in those two neighboring communities. A story about a local business person who was being scandalized because of some obscure political leaning and because he was appealing his tax assessments is actually what drew our attention to Ravena-Coeymans. It became quickly apparent to us that the place is a nest of fear, anxiety, and hypocrisy and so we titled our first article “Coeymans, New York: A Nest of Hypocrisy”

In addition, there are some very credible indicators that Coeymans town officials, including one particular judge and members of the Coeymans police department may be actively and knowlingly obstructing justice, a very serious federal crime.

Coeymans’ Response to Its Taxpayers

The feedback we got on that first article was tremendous and, looking back more than 54,000 readers later, we’ve covered an awful lot of territory but have come to only one conclusion, and it’s the same one we drew right at the start: The hypocrisy and corruption is so obviously on the surface and so conspicuous, it’s like the elephant in the room. When we first announced to everyone in the Ravena-Coeymans community, “There’s an elephant in the room!” The response was like, “Elephant? What elephant? Oh, that’s not an elephant, it’s an elephant!” And so it went on and on. The hypocrisy, corruption, and evil was so visible, so conspicuous no one wanted to see it or admit it was there. But we persisted because it called to mind that ancient story about the six blind men and the elephant, which was later put into a poem, “The Blind Men and the Elephant” by John Godfrey Saxe (1816-1887).  (Click here to read or download Blind Men and the Elephant-Poem.)

The final stanza goes like this:


And so these men of Indostan
Disputed loud and long,
Each in his own opinion
Exceeding stiff and strong,
Though each was partly in the right,
And all were in the wrong!


Now, I’m very much a realist and pragmatic and generally stick to the verifiable facts, having spent my entire professional life basically writing, critiquing and being critiqued in one fashion or another. So I know when I see an elephant.

This is an Elephant

So, speaking of elephants in the room, let’s take a very brief look at a very big elephant in a very small courtroom…actually there were two elephants in the Coeymans courtroom this past week, and everyone managed to ignore them. Perhaps our decription of the problem was too complicated for modest intellects so we decided to simplify it for some of our local readers.

Elephant No. 1. The People vs. John Vadney.
For those of you who somehow managed not to have been following this here is the case in a nutshell. There are plenty of details on this blog, too. A former (Thank God! she’s former!) member of the RCS CSD board of education, Josephine O’Connor, claimed that the sitting board of education president called her “fat” while waiting for the results of the 2012 voting on May 15th. O’Connor allegedly did what we call the ‘fat-lady dance’ and as she describes it on FaceBook, she ran up and down the school hall in the presence of voters, shouting “He called me fat!” Witnesses to the exchange all deny that Mr Vadney called O’Connor “fat” or anything similar at all. Several weeks later, O’Connor’s father, Joseph Edward Tracey, appears at a local business and proceeds to threaten the female owner and her family. He demands Mr Vadney’s phone number and the woman gives it to him. Tracey later places a call to Vadney, who puts it on speaker, and Tracey launches into a tirade of profanity, obscenities, and threats. Mr Vadney, fearing for his family’s safety, notifies the police, who contact Tracey, and Tracey gets abusive with the police. The Bethlehem police arrest Tracey and he is arraigned before a Bethlehem town justice. Mr Vadney requests an order of protection ordering Tracey to stay away from Vadney and his family, and the judge grants it. Tracey violates the order the very next day (admitting this fact in a sworn statement!) but has the Coeymans police arrest Mr Vadney claiming that Mr Vadney allegedly called him (Tracey) names.

Mr Vadney’s son was brutally attacked when he entered the high school the very Monday following the arrests. Nothing was done, no charges pressed. Everything was quiet, business as usual.

Mr Vadney had to take his entire family to an undisclosed location for their security thoughout the entire summer. That’s not an elephant, that’s plain bullshit! No one should have to leave his home to feel secure!

Although there is abundant evidence against Tracey, there is no evidence against Mr Vadney, but Mr Vadney has been harassed by the press, by opponents, and by the Coeymans court. The basic question is this: Why is Mr Vadney continuing to be harassed when there is clearly no evidence and no case against him? (This question is one that the incumbent DA P. David Soares should be answering, but he’s too busy dipping his pen in company ink and getting himself censured by the Appellate Court).

When the business woman attempted to file a report about Tracey’s abuse, the Coeymans police officer refused to take the complaint. The incident is currently the subject of a Formal Complaint and Claim against the town of Coeymans and the Coeymans Police.

That’s elephant No. 1 (actually it’s a whole herd of elephants but we’ll keep it simple for now).

Elephant No. 2 – The People vs. Scott Lendin
The second elephant in the room interestingly is the polar opposite of the first elephant! This time it’s a case of trying to get the Coeymans police department to enforce the law rather than having the law perversely applied. In other words, the Coeymans police in conjunction with the Coeymanazis around the Coeymans justice court are actually obstructing justice (that’s a federal crime under where I come from; see US Code – Chapter 73: Obstruction of justice.) by employing conspicuous retaliation (delaying) tactics. And they thought they’d get away with it, sillies that they are!

Obstruction of justice is a serious federal offense where someone tries to impede or interfere with the operation of the justice process. Anyone, even a police investigator or officer, a judge or other public official can be guilty of this crime. This can include actions that impede or prevent the criminal process during the investigation stage or during the prosecution stage. There are many different ways that someone can be charged with obstructing justice such as:

  • Attempting to influence a judge, court employee or a jury member
  • Threatening, harassing, coercing, assaulting, blackmailing, retaliating against or taking other actions against someone for participating in a criminal investigation or prosecution
  • Lying to law enforcement officials about important information such as knowingly altering, concealing, or destroying evidence or potential evidence
  • Otherwise obstructing or impairing the operation of state or federal laws, obstructing or impairing a criminal investigation.

The law takes a particularly dim view of public officials (elected officials, judges, public employees, police officers and employees) who obstructing the justice system, because society holds such people to a higher standard of conduct. Where an obstruction of justice charge might be sketchy, most prosecutors also make use of statutes protecting the citizen’s civil rights; so there are provisions that can be used in prosecuting for civil rights violations, too. Even a mediocre attorney would have a picnic here in Coeymans, and probably will…a qualified civil rights lawyer will make a killing!

Are you listening, Darlington, Dardiani, Deluca, Biscone, David Soares, Coeymans town board members!

In December 2011–YES! December 2011–a certain Scott Lendin allegedly trespassed on the claimant’s property and damaged a number of automobiles, and stole a motor vehicle. In total there are likely two grand theft felonies and one trespass charge that was made in December 2011 with the Coeymans police. The alleged crimes were committed in December 2011, when the report was filed by the victim, but Mr Lendin has not even been arraigned yet!

In fact, the Coeymans police managed to delay, a form of retaliation, the investigation, which was assigned to Guess who? Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, who sat on it for more than six months. Finally, totally frustrated, the business owners contacted the NYS Police and the Albany County Sheriff’s Department for help. The Sheriff’s department responded and within a day the investigation was underway and Dirty-Hands Jerry was removed from the case and the case was assigned to another investigator. They’re still sitting on it.

Now, most recently, Mr Lendin was supposed to have been arraigned on Thursday, August 23, 2012, before Coeymans town justice George Dardiani, the same George Dardiani who is being investigated for ethics violations by the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct, who lost a pissing contest against Michael T. Biscone, now representing Scott Lendin, and couldn’t manage to get Biscone to bring Lendin in to be arraigned, and also appears to be unwilling to sign the warrants to allow the police to bring Lendin in to be arraigned.

Don’t mess with Grandma!

Admittedly, when you put a school cafeteria manager in judge’s robes that’s exactly what you get, a cafeteria manager in judge’s robes. But that’s the problem with the town and village justice system and has been for more than half a century: you put an ignoramus on the bench and he’s scared shitless to do anything more that jail drunks, harass old ladies (a Coeymans speciality, I hear), pork their clerks (I presume only the female ones), and pee blood when facing an attorney. And who suffers? You get one guess.

Biscone tells Dardiani he’s not brining in Scott Lendin to be arraigned because the Coeymans police screwed up the paperwork. According the the Coeymans police, nothing’s wrong with the paperwork, Biscone is just being an “asshole.” (After some 8 months don’t you figure the Coeymans police would have noticed if something were wrong with the paperwork? Wouldn’t you think Dirty-Hands Jerry would have noticed in the more than 6 months he was supposedly “investigating” the crime? He didn’t.) So, here you have it: The Coeymans police ignore a crime until forced by the County Sheriff to move their asses, then they further delay the investigation. Obviously, there was an initial arrest and a report, otherwise Lendin would not be called in to be arraigned.

One question we might also ask is where is Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington when all of this is going on? Isn’t he being paid more than $91,000 a year in taxpayer money to ensure that things get done and done on time in the Coeymans P.D.? We also have it firsthand that the Coeymans town board oversees the Coeymans police department. O.K. Coeymans town board, do some overseeing! Why’s this happening? Tom Dolan is the Coeymans town board liaison to the Coeymans police department. Let’s ask the wannabe state senator (NEVER!), Tom Dolan, why this is happening? (Just imagine how effective he’d be in the state senate! NOT!)

Why Dardiani is delaying the show is a very big question mark. Actually, Dardiani is putting himself in yet another difficult situation because he’s again violating judicial ethics. Admittedly, he’s probably intimidated by Biscone, because he (Dardiani) has no formal legal training and very little if any training by the state when he was elected (although the town and village justices should attend annual continuing education seminars). So he’s probably afraid to sign the warrants. Is that so, justice Dardiani, are you scared?

That’s the second elephant and the little elephants, the big questions that follow that elephant are:

  1. Once the crime was reported and Lendin arrested…if he was even arrested when the crime was reported…why wasn’t he arraigned then?
  2. Why was the case laying around on Deluca’s desk for more than 6 months?
    Why was it necessary to have to get the Sheriff’s department on it before Coeymans police would move?
  3. Once it got moving again, why wasn’t Lendin arraigned as required by the law?
  4. Why wasn’t Scott Lendin in court for arraignment on Thursday, August 23, 2012?
  5. When Biscone refused to bring Lendin in, why didn’t Dardiani immediately issue a bench warrant ordering the police to bring him in to be arraigned?
  6. But who, in fact, is lying? Either Biscone is likely lying about the paperwork or the Coeymans police are lying and incompetent for having screwed up the paperwork and then, worse still,  lying about it. (Our money is on that fat-ass Michael Biscone.)
  7. And if Biscone is lying and the paperwork is in order, why haven’t the police proceeded to bring Lendin in. If they need a warrant signed by dumb-ass Dardiani, why don’t they have it in hand?

So we’ve made a full circle, though you may not have noticed, because our attention was first drawn to Ravena-Coeymans when we read about the local businessperson who was being crucified for having a different political ideology and for appealing his taxes. Now, the questions I have for all of our esteemed readers and those who can’t read but love the pictures:

Question for Discussion No. 1: Why are we paying taxes to support a police department who is indifferent to crime, enforces the law selectively and discriminatorily, is known far and wide to be retaliatory, who delay investigations for months, etc.? Why, I ask you, are we paying taxes to support a bunch of incompetent, unlawful, corrupt thugs who intimidate and dominate the good cops on the force? The bottom line is this: We are getting screwed by the criminals and screwed by the very law enforcement personnel we are paying to enforce the laws! Why pay taxes for that?

Got nutz?

Question for Discussion No. 2: Why are we paying taxes to support a town and village court system that the entire world, including the New York State Unified Court System, admits is ignorant, corrupt, and a waste of money? Why are we paying for judges who don’t know the law, or who are afraid to interpret it, or who pee themselves when they see a lawyer? Who runs the courtroom? Do we really need to pay for judges and court staff if all they do is collect traffic fines? Can’t our tax dollars pay for a balls-transplant so that we can get some justice? We are getting screwed by the criminals, screwed by the taxpayer-paid police, and screwed by the taxpayer-paid judges, and further screwed by the taxpayer-paid court staff! Why pay taxes to get screwed?

Question for Discussion No. 3: How dare any one of you out there criticize anyone for questioning the justice of how our tax dollars are being spent? How dare any one of you criticize another citizen for having the balls to say “NO! I’ve had enough! I’m sick of being screwed!” Knowing what you know you should be rallying behind that citizen with pitchforks, baseball bats, coat hangers, dildos, anything to support him! Or do you perversely enjoy the screw-job you’re getting for your tax dollars?

Question for Discussion No. 4: When in hell are you people going to do something about all of this? Like at least starting a letter-writing campaign, an e-mail campaign, filing Formal Complaints, attending town board and village council meetings and demanding accountability? And then, to add insult to injury, Why? Good people, do you even entertain the idea of allowing someone like company-man Tom Dolan to even consider running for a senate seat?!?!

Hasn’t this blog exposed enough of the corruption, incestuous relations, the evil web of illicit influence that extends from the heart of your village and town (your local officials and their spouses complicating everything from school budgets to court operations) to the very chambers of the NYS supreme court (Joe Teresi, town attorney Greg Teresi’s dear old dad)?

Or is this community populated by blind sheeple goosing an elephant and calling it…a dead ladybug!

There’s a F***ing Elephant in the Room!
Admit it! See it!

Dardiani and Biscone Subject to Discipline!

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

An Asinine Idiotic Attorney and an Ignorant Judge with No Balls Make for A Silly Soap Opera! But That’s What Was Presented to the Public by the Dardiani-Biscone Comedy Team, the Stars of the Coeymans Town Court.

Coeymans Town Court is One!

Take it for what it’s worth but I have a very profound respect for the law, ethics, morality. I am personally offended when I see a cheap shyster making a mockery of jurisprudence, the court, police work and all for the shyster’s ego and personal gain. That’s what I saw in Dardiani’s court with the performance of star-clown Michael J. Biscone in his perverse defense of alleged felon Scott Lendin, whom he refused to produce for arraignment on Thursday on two counts of felony grand theft and one of trespassing. Not only did shyster  Biscone show unabashed contempt for the court, playing on the presiding judge’s ignorance and inability to assert himself, but he offended the notion of law enforcement by publicly–and inaccurately–proclaiming that the Coeymans police department had screwed up the paperwork. Biscone showed extreme disrespect for the court by telling, YES! telling the judge he was not going to bring his client in to be arraigned. Any other judge would have placed Biscone in contempt of court with a hefty fine but Coeymans town justice George Dardiani just grinned stupidly and attempted to appease Biscone.

If that were a private meeting or a meeting in chambers it would have been bad enough but it all transpired in public, in front of dozens of spectators in open court. What effect did the whole circus performance have on the public? Well, it would be reasonable to assume that anyone witnessing the monkeys at play felt it was a mockery of jurisprudence. I, for one, was embarassed by it all and felt that most of the unwashed in the courtroom probably lost all respect for the court. Bully Biscone merely proved the general opinon that he’s a jerk and that the court is a plaything, a sham, and he could do what he pleased and get away with it. After all, he’s a Biscone.

Well, Dardiani, you balless wonder, and Mikey Biscone: Here’s where the buck is going to stop! Dardiani, you’re done making a mockery of the justice system. Biscone, you’re on your way to disciplinary hearings, shyster that you are! The investigation will probably include your unethical conflicts of interest, too. The community is getting a wake-up call and you’re both on notice.

Based on What We Were Able to Observe in Coeymans Town Justice George Dardiani’s Court on Thursday, We Have Grounds for and Will File Another Formal Written Complaint Demanding that the State Unified Court System Discipline Dardiani for Failing to Maintain Order in His Courtroom and for Eroding the Public’s Confidence in the Judical System. Bad news for Georgy, because this may mean the Commission will remove him from the bench and prohibit him from ever running again. Are you listening, kitty-litter reporter Dayelin Roman of the Smalbany Times Useless?

Dardiani’s Reaction to Biscone
He Became a Sucking Eyeball Freak!

 Old John J. Biscone, mouldering in his grave, must have been turning restlessly at about 10:20 on Thursday, August 23, 2012, when sonny boy Michael Biscone was making an ass of himself, George Dardiani, and the justice system. Poor old dead daddy! Is that really your legacy to the community, John J.? Is Michael J. and John T. all there is (Well, isn’t it enough? The place is lousy with Biscone shysters!)  Not quite what you were hoping for, is it? But it’s the Biscone Legacy.

Michael J. Biscone, the Biscone Legacy
John J. Biscone’s Gift to You = One Big Turd and One Little Turd

So, in Addition, We are Preparing a Formal Written Complaint Against Michael J. [Jerky-Boy] Biscone for Submission to the New York State Supreme Court Appellate Division, 3rd Department Demanding the Biscone be Censured and Disciplined for His Unprofessional and Contemptuous Conduct in Dardiani’s Court and for his Unethical Conflicts of Interest he Operates in RCS which We and an Entire Community Witness Regularly (Probably Why the Coeymans Town Board Meetings and the Ravena Village Council Meetings are Not Recorded and Archived).

They’re All Cousins!
Now do you see what’s going on?
(We’re working on a bigger relationships chart.)

And yes, we are aware that Michael T. Biscone’s former partner, Joseph C Rotello, is employed as a clerk (exec assistant)  in the Appellate Division 3rd Department division of the court system. And yes, we will ensure that the complaint points out this fact and that the investigation precludes Joe Rotello from interfering, intervening, or otherwise influencing the investigative process or the outcome. Sorry, Mikey, but Joe Rotello won’t be able to help you out on this one. And don’t forget that hidden little tick, Greg Teresi, his father is the notorious censured state judge Joseph Teresi, the one censored for anti-pro se bias. Not to mention, of course, town justice Harold “Hal” Warren’s wife who is a Biscone and a member of the Ravena town counsel.  And there’s the Darlington connection with Soares DA’s office, the best little whorehouse in Albany,  in Albany where his wife is a secretary. So, you see, in this widow’s web of incestuous relationships unless you’re paying someone off, or in bed with them, you don’t have a snowflake’s chance in hell for justice in Ravena-Coeymans!

(Bud don’t despair yet. There’s still justice Phillip Crandall and retired justice, now justice clerk Kevin Reilly who may be the only two clean people in the entire putrid system!)

Biscone Screwed You Guys Good

All that having been noted, we’d like to know what the Coeymans police department thinks of the ass-kicking they received at the hands of fat-ass Michael J. Biscone? Seems Biscone thinks you guys can’t even properly fill out an investigation form or an information. Fat-Ass Biscone seems to think you’re all a bunch of morons and belong in the same league as the ignorant mousey Coeymans town justices. How do you all feel about that? Did you really screw up the paperwork like Mike Biscone claims you did? Did you all play into Biscone’s dirty little game plan? What do you think about all of this? And where was your chief, Darlington, when all of this was happening…out again? What the hell is this town paying him for, anyway? He’s totally ineffective, useless! Was he taking his wife to the doctor’s again? Did you check under his desk…or was he under Dirty-Hands Jerry’s desk (Move over, Dayelin Roman, you gotta share!)?

Dardiani should have immediately held shyster Michael J. Biscone in contempt, remanded him to overnight custody, issued an immediate bench warrant and ordered alleged felon Scott Lendin arrested and brought in for arraignment. In addition, were I Dardiani, I would have made a formal written complaint to the NYS Committee on Professional Standards demanding that Biscone be disciplined. But then I’m different from Dardiani; I have a set of working man-apples.

Everyone present that day will be named as witnesses. We’ll submit the entire sign-in sheet with our papers. We’ll also demand the digital recordings of the proceedings as part of our filing.

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!

Just A Theory….And A Caution…

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

Most Theories Are Based on Real Factual Observations and then The Conclusions Drawn are Applied to the General Situation. We Have a Theory …

Getting to the core of the corruption…

The whole process is like peeling an onion. As we remove each successive layer we’re getting to the core. But as we approach the core the air gets thicker and thicker while those at the center of the RCS corruption try to ward off the onslaught of questions, investigations, audits; you can actually smell their anxiety. And if you’ve ever peeled an onion, you know that the longer you’re at it, the nastier it gets.

Well, that’s what the situation is like in our exposé of the RCS multilayered corruption. As we expose, government agencies are monitoring and preparing. When the time is right, they’ll raid the place and clean up the bodies themselves.

But picture this: The power brokers at the core of the onion, the worms who have been eating way at the core of the community, won’t let themselves be taken alive. We all know that. But they have their lackies who will have to carry the bag for them.

Betrayal’s around the corner!

Imagine this scenario: You’ve been playing the game for 25-30 years, faithfully not asking questions, taking your orders, thinking you’re back is protected and you’ll be able to retire soon and enjoy the fruits of your criminal loyalty. You’ve kept your political friends and their families out of jail and their records clean. You’ve provided a safe haven for the thugs and the bullies. In a couple of years you’d be able to retire and get out of the cesspool you’ve been wading in for decades. But wait, here come the investigations, the audits, the indictments and you’re on the list for complicency, accessoriship, conspiracy, racketeering, public corruption. You’re likely to face a felony conviction…there goes your pension, buddy! Now what?

Our advice to you, GD: Clean up your act, cooperate, throw them in before they throw you to the sharks. You may not be the sharpest tack in the box but you’ll be one of the first to go downriver. You know they’ll do it.

In the meantime, we’ll continue sifting through the evidence, listening to the reports, watching. As the multimillion dollar complaints and lawsuits start rolling in somebody’s gonna snap, and when he or she does….

You Know They’ll Cut Your Throat!

One Step Forward, Two Steps Backward: Kerry Thompson gets $30+/hour!

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

Complaints, Lawsuits, Fear of the Coeymanazi Coeymans Police Department…Overspending, Wild Spending Habits, A Major Chunk of the Town Budget–Now the Coeymans Police Department “Promotes” Albany CountySheriff’s Department Employee and Part-Time Coeymans Cop Kerry Thompson to Lieutenant and the Coeymans Town Board Approves Thompson’s Hourly Rate at More Than $30/Hour!

Grab the Money and Run!
More Spending for Less Service

According to our recent poll 64% of persons responded would like to see the Coeymans police department eliminated; 59% of persons responding said they would support a referendum to eliminate the Coeymans police department. 46% said that they were concerned by the coziness between the Albany County and the Coeymans police department. 38% of responders reported that their rights were violated by either the Coeymans police department or a Coeymans police officer, and were unsatisfied with the reponse of the Coeymans police department.

These are pretty damning figures from a fairly well-educated, intelligent group of people who read this blog, and take the time to participate in our polls. Such a large percentage wo want to see the Coeymans police department eliminated and who would support a referendum to eliminate it is a good reason to continue reviewing the department and whether it is justified. A very concerning rate of persons responding to the poll report that they feel their rights were violated by the Coeymans police department or by a Coeymans police officer.

So, this raises a very appropriate question after the July 23, 2012, Coeymans town board meeting at which Flach, Dolan, Boehme, and Masti unanimously approved Albany County Sheriff department employee and part-time Coeymans police officer Kerry Thompson to be a less-than-full-time lieutenant in the Coeymans police department at an hourly rate of more than $30.00/hour! More than $30.00 an hour for what the Coeymans town board described as largely “administrative.”

Is this town absolutely nutz?

Has the town board completely lost it’s mind or are they 100% owned by the Coeymanazis, Dolan, and Albany County! Are you, dear readers, citizens, and residents going to believe that Gregory Darlington, with his more than $91,000 annual salary and the some 18 other full- and part-time employees, including one Coeymans police officer, Contento (“contento” is Italian for “happy”, “pleased with yourself” Wouldn’t you be?), who pulled more than $84,000 in salary in 2011, are so overworked that they need to put a lieutenant on the staff (he’s already there but they’re pulling a fast one to “promote” him) for more than $30/hour. How many Coeymans residents are making that kind of money on one or two jobs?

And an administrative position, to add salt to our wounds?!?! What kind of favor, reward is this, now? A very special Thank You! to Kerr Thompson for his fine service to this community as a part-timer? Or is it because he’s married to chief Gregory Darlingtons’s sister? Did you miss that little tidbit when we published it some time ago?

When is this insane spending and rewarding, this favoritism at taxpayer expense going to finally stop???

This is an absolute disgrace considering the general attitude of the community regarding the Coeymans police, their antics, and their spending habits! And Cathy Deluca, wife of Coeymans police department employee, Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” Deluca is sending residents out collecting empty cans and bottles to send school children on field trips because, ‘There’s no money in the school budget for that.”  Does anyone smell something funny going on around here?

Go on! Give them some more!
And Keep Collecting Those Bottles…It’s for the kids!

Was the recent award of more than $18,000 from Albany County DA David Soares a prelude to this ridiculous action taken by the Coeymans town board? Are any of you aware that Thompson works full-time for the Albany County Sheriff’s Department; How does he expect to do two jobs at the same time?  (This multiple job syndrome appears to be a unique situation in the RCS community: Matt Miller had three jobs at the same time: teacher, teachers union president/union rep, and energy manager, until his little criminal career was ended by the RCS board of education. Look at Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca’s multiple jobs! Deluca claims to have at least 5 jobs, and still manages to collect a salary from the Coeymans police department as a police investigator with no qualifications! And now we have Kerry Thompson who is going to come on to do “administrative work” (Wait a minute! Isn’t that Darlington’s job? He’s getting $91,000 to do it!) and Coeymans is going to be paying him $30/hour (between $30-45,000 a year, part-time! That’s more than most RCS residents take home, my friends!)) This town is apparently  rolling is spare change and nobody knows it! Keep collecting those bottles and cans!

We can see Thomas E. Dolan screwing the community like that–he’s in it with Darlington and his gang of Coeymanazis— but it’s beyond us that Peter Masti went along with the gift-giving frenzy, even that Stephen Flach went along with it. Scandalous! Disgraceful!

Our Advice: The Coeymans Police Department Needs a State Audit VERY VERY Badly!

The Comptroller or the NYS Office of the Attorney General Needs to Take a Good Long Look at the Town of Coeymans Finances and especially the Financial (Mis)Management and Accounting Abuses/Practices of the Coeymans Police Department, Including its Staffing Practices!

Will someone please WAKE UP!!! That’s YOUR $$$ They’re Burning!!!

It’s Time to Hit the Button!

Albany County DA David Soares: Censured Blowhard

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

Soares’ Reputation Doesn’t Do Much Soaring, According To The Media.

In Fact, It Soars Like A Turd In A Thunderstorm!

The Montana Flying Turd Bird Lands
In the Albany DA’s Office

Soares is running for re-election this year. His opponent, fellow Democrat Lee Kindlon, said in a statement this censure is “the tip of an iceberg of recklessness, mismanagement, and bad judgment that will end up costing Albany County taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars.”

Our Little Friend Albany County DA P. David Soares Appears To Have A Pretty Soiled Record When It Comes To His Professional And Private Misconduct. Here Are Just A Few Of The Tidbits Among The Many We Discovered.

Soares Mugshot

The public really needs to be aware of some of the incompetence and misconduct that our chief law enforcement officer in the county has to own up to while the hypocrite is prosecuting others.

Soares’ recently was censured by the courts for his inappropriate remarks about a judge and had to make a groveling apology.  An appeals court says in 2010 Soares made “reckless and misleading” comments about Albany County Judge Stephen Herrick. After Judge Herrick assigned a special prosecutor to Soares’ investigation of steroid distribution in Albany County, Soares issued a press release saying the judge created a “dangerous loophole” for defendants.
Now, a state appeals court says Soares’ comments went too far. Soares said he accepts the court’s decision–That’s damned decent of Soares, isn’t it?– but is looking forward. Forward to What? Hopefully not re-election in Albany county!

This was the third timeSoares has been reprimanded for making statements on pending cases. Censure is a form of public discipline meted out by the courts to punish attorneys,  and this most recent one follows two earlier disciplinary actions that reprimanded  Soares for making “improper and prejudicial public statements regarding pending criminal matters,” the appeals court noted. Soares just can’t keep his fat mouth shut, it seems.

Soares is running for re-election this year. His opponent, fellow Democrat Lee Kindlon, said in a statement this censure is “the tip of an iceberg of recklessness, mismanagement, and bad judgment that will end up costing Albany County taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars.” (Source: News 10 report http://www.news10.com/story/18619027/judicial-censure-for-albany-county-da-david-soares. There’s a video of Soares eating crow on the site. See also “A state appeals court has censured Albany County District Attorney David Soares for making “reckless and misleading” remarks about an Albany judge who assigned his office’s high-profile steroids case to a special prosecutor in 2010” in Appeals panel censures David Soares, saying remarks about judge “reckless” by Robert Gavin (Friday, May 25, 2012) http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/Court-disciplines-DA-3582767.php#ixzz20zhGeDrp)

Saratoga Politics writes “Mr. Kindlon is an impressive fellow. Lee Kindlon is the son of the prominent Albany defense lawyer Terence L. Kindlon as well as a Marine and Iraq war veteran, Kindlon is running against the baggage laden Albany County District Attorney David Soares in a Democratic primary.  (Read Lee Kindlon’s bio at http://www.kindlon.com/lkindlon.html, read position on issues at http://www.leekindlon.com/)

Lee Kindlon
Ex-Marine & Historian

Soares has more enemies than I do, including New York’s immensely popular Governor Andrew Cuomo.

According to Saratoga Politics, “During the Occupy Albany movement, Cuomo had repeatedly requested publicly that the 11 p.m. curfews in both Lafayette Park and Academy Park be enforced. Soares stanchly refused, infuriating not only the governor but many politicians from all over the state. Well known radio host…Fred Dicker went on to blast Soares almost daily.”

Soares has also been criticized for his bizarre prosecution of defendants from Florida for selling steroids to residents of Albany County through the mail. A case that is widely viewed as nothing but a self-serving publicity stunt by Soares.

Soares’ doesn’t seem to acknowledge any boundaries and can’t keep it in his pants even at work: Soares also has acknowledged a longstanding intimate relationship with a junior female staffer whose siblings have been prosecuted on multiple occasions by his office.

And now we have his relationship with NXIVM and Keith Ranier’s favorite gun moll and femme fatale Kristen Keeffe. Now Kindlon is calling on the Attorney General to investigate NXIVM’s (see Secrets of NXIVM) and Kristen Keeffe’s role in trying to set up Joe O’Hara. (The documents are available on the Saratoga Politics site. Visit the Saratoga Politics site for the complete story at http://saratogaindecline.blogspot.com/2012/02/well-i-drove-on-down-to-albany-today-to.html)  This is the story of professional misconduct and mishandling of sealed court documents (see Saratoga Politics at http://saratogaindecline.blogspot.com/2012/02/well-lee-kindlon-followed-his-right.html). And this is the Albany County DA? Come on, this dog’s gotta go and fast!

Get this! Soares’ piece of fluff went on leave of absence and then turns up with a new job (no doubt thanks to her boyfriend in the DA’s office, the DA himself). Soares’s girlfriend lands new county job. The Times Union reports that the staffer who David Soares is boinking gets transfered out of his office in wake of controversy and lands a new county job. (Read the story by Jordan Carleo-Evangelist and Robert Gavin at http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/DA-s-girlfriend-lands-new-county-job-3574940.php#ixzz20zgyjKNS)

In a Times Union report, “Fired DA’s aide gets job back: Albany County official will get back pay after ruling citing jurisdictional issue,” by Robert Gavin appearing on June 1, 2012, we learn that a former top aide to Albany County District Attorney David Soares who was fired in the wake of a scathing county audit has his old job back, a state appeals court announced Thursday.

“In over 130 petty cash audits during the past 121/2 years,” the audit stated, “our office has never encountered the problems with basic bookkeeping, accounting and petty cash account management that the director of administration for the office of the district attorney presents.”

Now that’s comforting. Here the Albany County DA is passing out checks all over the place, including to the Coeymans Police (we all know how that happened, don’t we?), and he’s got auditors crawling all over him and his staff for accounting irregularities! Nice going. Look’s like we have a case of the fox keeping the chickens; this is the guy who’s supposed to be prosecuting the crooks but Guess what! The biggest crook might be the prosecutor himself!

Now the connections are more than obvious and maybe we should demand a state independent audit of the Coeymans Police Department’s handling of cash, especially petty cash. Do you seriously think that they’d come off squeaky clean? If you do, I still have that bridge to sell you!

What’s worse, is that a major player in the RCS crime drama is Thomas E. Dolan, none other than the same Thomas E. Dolan who is the Town of Coeymans Town Board Liaison to the Coeymans Police who have so many cozy connections with our incredible Albany County DA’s office, and who recently received more than $18 grand in a gift check from Soares! Dolan is running for state legislative office–what that means is that the RCS mafia will then have a complete circuit from their next in Ravena-Coeymans to the New York state legislature! That’s gotta be stopped and stopped now! Can you imagine the corruption, intimidation, coercion, retaliation that would materialize when the Coeymanazis have a mole in the state legislature!?! That needs to be investigated and like YESTERDAY!

Are you listening Mr Lee Kindlon?

The secretary with whom DA David Soares has a romantic relationship has transferred out of the district attorney’s office and has been given a new post as a legal secretary in the county’s Department of Human Resources, according to county spokeswoman Mary Rozak, spokesperson for the county, who adds that Stacey Quackenbush’s (Soares’ piece of fluff) new post is a civil service job (does that mean she has to take a testicle…I mean a test?) and pays $37,108.

Caught with his pants down (no pun intended) Soares first insisted this whole situation was no big deal and not really anybody’s business, calling the revelation of the relationship by Albany Citizen One, “clearly a political effort to malign my reputation for the simple reason that my record as Albany County district attorney is one that I am proud of.” Yeah, you’re the county’s chief law enforcement officer, an elected public figure, in charge of prosecuting citizens, held to a higher standard, and your sleezy misconduct is none of our business? Maybe that’s how it works off the coast of Africa, in your native Cape Verde islands, but we have different standards here, Mr Soares! It is our business how you behave, Hypocrite!

Finally, Soares acknowledges his sordid  relationship with the staffer, calls revelation ‘political effort to malign my reputation’ and claims that politics are the reason a report surfaced that he has been romantically involved with an office staffer. But he doesn’t deny the unethical sexual a relationship, and is so arrogant and brazen he says it’s no one’s business. According to Mr Soares, “This issue is a personal issue,” Soares said in a statement on Saturday. “It is not newsworthy and certainly not appropriate for public debate or discussion.” (See the entire piece at http://blog.timesunion.com/localpolitics/10559/soares-acknowledges-relationship-with-staffer-calls-revelation-political-effort-to-malign-my-reputation/). You don’t need any help “maligning your reputation,” Mr Soares, you’re doing just fine on your own. Keep it up (again, no pun intended)!

Speaking of Africa, the African American community in Albany has lost all respect for their once darling David Soares; he received a thrashing at the African American community recently when he defended the Albany Police shooting of a Black teenager, Nah-Cream Moore.

Even African Americans
Are Skeptical of Him

In a report by Bryan Fitzgerald, “Skeptical crowd grills DA: Soares fields questions in police shooting of teen; few like answers,” in the March 30, 2012, Times Union, Soares defended the results of a grand jury review into the police shooting of Nah-Cream Moore, and he faced an often jeering combative crowd — with some people storming out of the South End meeting on that Thursday night. (Read the full report at http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/Skeptical-crowd-grills-DA-3445948.php#ixzz20zjldLI1). Soares got a good ass-kicking from his own people! Is the African American community finally seeing through this self-interested politico?

There’s tons of adverse information on our darling (Oh! Did I almost write Darlington, our own Coeymanazi police chief’s wife, Leah Darlington is Soares’secretary and a familiar name in Ravena-Coeymans, Louis Neri, a former partner of John T. Biscone, is a defender in Soares’ office, and Ravena village justice Harold Warner’s daughter is also employed by Soares’ office; get’s cozier by the minute, doesn’t it?) just try visiting “Three Count Indictment of David Soares”  (http://soarestruthandtips.typepad.com/soarestruth/2012/01/index.html) or “The Goods on David Soares” http://soarestruthandtips.typepad.com/soarestruth/2012/04/the-goods-on-david-soares.html) or even “The Observation Deck-A blog of opinions on local, state and national issues” (Times Union) Category: David Soares (http://blog.timesunion.com/opinion/category/david-soares/)

Here’s another apetizing tidbit on our wonderful DA: “Albany County DA Let Pedophile Cult Borrow His Subpoena Power” by Max Paige-Vieux (March 7, 2012) Paige-Vieux writes, “…the Albany Times Union series on NXIVM—Keith Raniere’s self-empowerment “technology” company—will totally move your eyebrows. Your effing eyebrows will never be the same again. It’s got everything: money, power, Joe Bruno, multilevel-marketing scams, gross kid touching, the heirs to the Seagrams family fortune, Ayn Rand novels, dumb language borrowed from Scientology, lawsuits, the 1980’s arcade game Vanguard, everything.” And continues, “The big political fallout from the story is going to rest squarely on Albany DA David Soares, who is up for reelection soon and whose opponent in the race, Lee Kindlon, is already using the Times Union series as a cudgel against him. The gist is that Soares allowed one of Raniere’s top NXIVM lieutenants, Kristin Keeffe, to use the resources of the district attorney’s office to build a case against a NXIVM whistleblower, Joseph O’Hara. Keeffe (whose name I am spelling correctly, believe it or not) then spent several weeks allegedly abusing the grand jury process, drafting subpoenas, preparing exhibits and then secreting some of this juicy material to NXVIM’s lawyers.” (See the rest at http://newyorkjournal.org/2012/03/albany-county-da-let-pedophile-cult-borrow-his-subpoena-power/)

That’s not all. Capital Tonight reports, “Albany Co. DA Soares Responds to Criticism. The Albany County District Attorney’s office plays a unique role in monitoring state lawmakers. But right now, it’s the current DA who is under fire from his primary opponent over the case against Personal Growth Company NXIVM. District Attorney David Soares says he stands by his handling of that case and the rest of his record. (http://capitaltonightny.ynn.com/2012/02/albany-co-da-soares-responds-to-criticism/).

That’s all just a sampling from the mainstream media. There is some pretty scary stuff out there about Soares but it’s a bit too crazy–we’re not saying it’s untrue, just crazy–and we don’t have the space here to reproduce it. Take our word for it, the guy’s a sleeze and an animal! Just the kind of guy you want supervising law enforcement…and you wonder why we’re stuck with Coeymanazis? Re-elect David Soares and watch it get worse!

Gotcha, Soares!
Get Yer Hands…Pants…Up!

The Editor

Editor’s Apology: We’d like to apologize for referring to so many reports that appear in the Times Union newspaper (a.k.a. Albany Times Useless). This does not mean that we are endorsing that corrupt rag but it does have some great stuff on Albany County DA, and we haven’t been able to find any false facts in those articles, which appear to be supported by other, independent sources.  Not part of an apology, but you may also want to visit the blog, “Soares Spot” that publishes only information on David Soares in sordid detail  (http://soarestruthandtips.typepad.com/soarestruth/2012/02/index.html).

The blogger recently put out a poll about the Coeymans Police Department and asked whether you are for or against the dissolution of the police department based on the various complaints of police brutality, ineptness, unprofessionalism, lack of training, and violation of civil rights and abuse of citizens and residents.  And the blogger now sarcastically refers to them as the Coeymanazis, and giving some individuals personnel nicknames such as “Dirty Hands.”
 
I grew up in a township with county police only; no village or town police, only county and state police. Perhaps that is why 2 million people moved out of NY. A lot of southern states provide services such as fire, police, paramedics on a county level so people see the benefits and they feel the benefits in their wallets. How? You ask–they pay less taxes! 
 
I find it personally very difficult to write about this, since I have family and friends who carry badges and who range from small town police officers to federal investigators.  For example, I have a cousin who is now retired from the PDNY and also from the FDNY.  Yes, one person, two hats, so there are people out there who experience an event like 9/11 with a whole different meaning, and we can’t fathom what they are thinking when they have lost hundreds of comrades and friends. It’s a different level of experiencing the world, yet they manage to act responsibly and compassionately, respectfully.

But back to the nitty-gritty: I want to take a down-to-earth non-personal dollar-and-cents approach to the idea of dissolving the Coeymans police department.  In the past Mayor John Bruno perhaps said it best when he questioned: “What do I see for my tax dollars?”  And then, a few years later, the village of Ravena dissolved their police department.  Now as a community we financially have to look at what we’re getting for our tax dollars, and ask that and similar questions.  Do we really see our state tax dollars at work when we have an elite force like the New York State Police using their sophisticated and advanced training doing nothing other than handing out  thruway traffic violations?  Do we see our county tax dollars at work via the Albany County Sheriff department, or even through the County District Attorney’s office? You’re probably thinking to yourself, “NO!” But you’re paying for all of it…at least 4 times for the same services. Smart, eh? Why don’t you do that for a quart of milk, a shirt, a car? Because it’s stupid!
 
In extremely hard financial times where people are losing their homes to back taxes or simply because they don’t have a job or have one that pays crappola! Imagine losing your home for a few hundred dollars and then our taxes going up and up and up. This might be a good time to ask that burning question: “Did you see all the For Sale signs go up  after the shool budget vote?”  Do we want to keep or disolve our Coeymans Police Department based on financial cost versus the benefits versus the same services by the New York State Police or the Albany County Sheriff’s department, who would provide the same services but from local satellite offices (just like the New York State Police and the Greene County Sheriff has done in neighboring New Baltimore).
 
For more than 20 years I have looked at the annual budget of the town of coeymans. And I have seen the spending go up and up.  Some frustrating by unfunded mandates.  So let me break down what I estimate the entire cost of running the police department is today.  Out of a reported $5 million town budget, approximately $750,000 for police salaries alone. (Compare that with more than $41 million for the RCS central school district budget! The school budget is more than 8 times that of the entire Town of Coeymans!) At the time of this writing, I am still waiting for the Town of Coeymans to respond to a F.O.I.L. (Freedom of Information Law) request for the W-2s of Coeymans Police department personnel.  I was told it would take another two weeks.  So I can only guestimate at the dispatch salaries which could be as much as $450,000 including secretarial salaries, etc. [Editor’s Note: According to SeeThrough NY, the 19 employees at the Coeymans Police Department total a crushing $650,000 in salaries) Then you have the cost of the vehicles, the cost of maintaining the vehicles that run 24/7 (tires, tune ups, oil change, etc.), not to mention the gas and the mileage covering the township in the rural and farm areas.  Then there is the maintenance for radio equipment, ongoing training, retirement fund, health benefits, and routine court and law suits.  That adds up to $2.2 to $2.4 million dollars.  I stand corrected by a $100,000 or so since I am still waiting for actual receipts.  The point is this: About half of the town budget, at least, is going to support the Coeymans Police Department. Are we that crime-ridden, are we that much of a gang of hoodlums that we need to spend that much on law enforcement? Can we afford to maintain a police department for a mere 8,000 people?  Perhaps we should look into turning over the operations to the Albany County Sheriff’s Department or the New York State Police or both and invite them to use our present law enforcement installations and offices. 
 
And that’s what the Blogger is asking in the police poll, that’s the poll question: Would you support a referendum to eliminate the Coeymans Police Department? Would you support the ballot to turn over law enforcement to the professionals of the Albany County Sheriff’s Department and the New York State Police? Do you want to disolve it and turn it over or not??? For me I have a handful of honest issues. 

Always Professional & Constantly Training

One of the top of my list is that we train officers and then they go off to other police departments/agencies; Coeymans is simply not a major career goal. If the officer is good and has a future, after he or she gets some experience, they go elsewhere.  And we are constantly doing the training.  And this is where minor to major civil rights violations have occurred; because the Coeymans Police are either rejects from other departments or are in their training training phase, we are sued for their lack of training.  And police training is continuous. I has to be! This situation not only expensive, it’s frustrating because we can’t retain the good, civic-minded, competent, intelligent police officers.   And now the facts indicate that that even our elected officials have neglected the requirement for a policy and procedures on who reports to whom, and how citizens’ complaints, yours and mine, are handled.  The patrol man answers to the sargeant, who answers to the police chief, the chief answers to the elected officials in this case the Town Supervisor and the town board. But according to information received from the Town of Coeymans, no one seems to know anything concrete about who reports to whom and what the chain-of-command might be. The result: chaos! And lawsuits! And civil rights violations! And miscarriages of justice! You name it Coeymans has it!
 
Another issue is that we have reports that the Coeymans Police Department selectively takes complaints, that is, police department employees tend to decide whether or not you’re going to get law enforcement services when you ask for them.  And that to me is totally unprofessional and biased–it’s also unlawful. If this happens to you then you must request assistance from the New York State Police or the Albany County Sheriff’s Office (although one Sheriff’s department employee who is also a part-time Coeymans Police Officer–and married to chief Darlington’s sister, recently refused to take a harassment complaint from a local woman). And then, please file a complaint with the FBI!

If somebody came by and asked me to sign a petition to dissolve the Coeymans Police Department, I sadly admit, there would be no compelling reason not to sign it, and I would sign it.  I would rather deal with the New York State Police or the Albany County Sheriff’s Department.  It would be unlikely that we would experience the personal bias or “get even” mentality based on gossip that 90% of the time results in retaliation, intimidation, and coercion by the local police. 

Let’s Talk
Dollars & Cents

But more realistically to me I would be opting for a more efficient and productive use of my county and state tax dollars and looking at a potential savings of at least $2 million of our town tax dollars that could be better spent promoting small businesses, to development of our beautiful parks and our waterfront, to restoration of some of the beautiful historical sites in our midst. The $2 million dollars saved could be used to nurture pride in our town, and when you’re proud of your town, you’ll have a measurable increase in your own self-esteem, self-respect, and love for your neighbor. So when you look at it in dollars and cents, it makes sense very good sense to dissolve the Coeymans Police Department.  Not because one guy has “Dirty Hands,” or another guy harasses little old ladies, or because we personally have experienced civil rights violations or even profiling of one sort or another, or even if the Smalbany Blogger rightly or wrongly calls the Coeymans Police the Coeymansnazis. We also have to take a good hard look at the abuses and violations, real ones and potential ones, that come with the confusion and indifference we see in the Coeymans administration and the Coeymans Police Department. One example it the rubber-stamp approval of the Coeymans Police Department’s request for an increase in petty cash from $300 to $1000! There’s no way that $1000 can be considered “petty cash,” at least not according to all the accounting books I’ve read!

But, seriously, I think we should all provide our input on the poll because I’m curious about what the results of the poll would be, aren’t you?
 
These unfunded mandates are going to continue to go up and up and I doubt very much gasoline prices are going to go down.  So as a community we have to discuss this and if we do dissolve our inefficient, expensive Coeymans Police Department, then we must also make efforts to assist those persons who are left jobless with job placement elsewhere, perhaps somewhere in the community where they can really earn their keep. But to continue running the Coeymans Police Department we have to find justification in funding it, too.
 
We’re all in this mess together, so you have to really give some thought to “What’s your solution to a growing finaical burden?”

Editor’s Epilog

Thank you, Mr Polyak, for a well-reasoned and well-written commentary on the present state of affairs of law enforcement in the Town of Coeymans. Your presentation is motivating and stimulates thought about the status quo and ignorance of the facts. Continuing the present situation is  like the reasoning of stopping your watch to save time, or complaining about fuel oil consumption and your fuel bill while still using the 75-year old converted coal boiler and not biting the bullet to install a fuel-efficient heating system. We’re all guilty at one time or another! But we need to make some  sensible decisions real soon or at least discuss alternatives in a constructive and sensible manner. Mr Polyak has provided us with a good start.
