More Coeymans Police Misconduct: We Want Answers!

Private Citizens Can Tell You It’s None of Your Business
But…
When You’re an Elected Official, Public Employee, a Public Servant You Have an Obligation to Answer to the Public, Especially When It’s a Question of Misconduct, Double Standards, or Hypocrisy.

Many People Thinking of QuestionsWe have recently received some very disturbing reports from citizens and residents that require a response from our elected officials, our public employees, and our public servants. We believe firmly in the priciple that if you are innocent and have the opportunity to defend yourself, you must do so; otherwise your silence can reasonably be understood to be an admission of guilt.

So, we are asking our public servants, the Coeymans town supervisor, Stephen Flach, and the members of the town board of the town of Coeymans,Thomas Boehm, Thomas Dolan, Peter Masti, and Dawn Rogers;  the chief of police of the Coeymans town police department, Gregory Darlington; the mayor of Ravena, John Bruno, and the members of the Ravena village council, Martin Case, William Bailey, Nancy Warner, and Rocco Persico, and the village and town justices Harold “Hal” Warner, Phillip Crandall, and George Dardiani, to come forward and publicly admit or deny the allegations brought by residents, taxpayers, and citizens regarding outrageous misconduct in the execution of your duties and obligations to the residents and citizens of this Ravena-Coeymans community.

Let’s be very clear about this: You Do Not Have the Option of Silence, unless you invoke the 5th Amendment to avoid criminal prosecution. That’s your Constitutional right. You may have denied us our rights but we are greater than you; we acknolwedge your rights and we respect and honor the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Darlington

For Coeymans Police Chief Gregory Darlington and Coeymans Police Lieutenant Kerry Thompson, and Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple: Coeymans police department employee, Kerry Thompson, also an employee of the Albany Sheriff’s Department, administrative assistant to Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington: We have received a report and video evidence that your son defaced and destroyed political campaign signes, to wit: the political campaign signs at least of candidate George LaMountain. We understand that no action, no report, no arrest, no charges have been brought agains your son for his crime. True or False?

question 1For Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach and town board members Thomas Boehm, Thomas Dolan, Peter Masti, and Dawn Rogers, and Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington: Chief Darlington has an infant seat in the back of his Coeymans police  department issued official police vehicle;  Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington allegedly takes that vehicle when he goes on vacations etc. Is the intended use of the official vehical? Darlington receives a salary of $91,000/year plus benefits. Coeymans taxpayers pay for the car, its fuel, its maintenance.  Is the intended use of the official vehical? In fact, Darlington had pictures posted on Facebook while on vacation of his family in the police vehicle. Well, is this true or false, Mr Darlington?

Editors Note: We believe the vehicle is provide for official use. If the supervisor and board members agree, then Mr Darlington is guilty of misuse of public property, should resign, and reimburse the town of Coeymans for his misuse of the official vehicle.
  
question 6For Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach and town board members Thomas Boehm, Thomas Dolan, Peter Masti, and Dawn Rogers, and Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington:  Coeymans police chief Darlington’s wife is a secretary in Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares office.  Our reader states that s/heI has sent letters to the Town Board as well as Soares office reporting on questionable, illicit, and unlawful incidents  going on in Coeymans under Darlington’s watch, and nothing at all has come of it.  Mr Darlington, supervisor Flach, town board members Boehm, Dolan, Masti Rogers: Is there a conflict of interest here? What is your response?

And what about the fact that not only does Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington have a mole in the Albany County District Attorney’s office (Darlinton’s wife), his administrative assistant, Kerry Thompson, an employee in the Albany County Sheriff’s Department, is married to Darlington’s sister, and works closely with Darlington in the Coeymans police department. Are boundaries being violated? Are there conflicts of interest here? Mr Darlington, supervisor Flach, town board members Boehm, Dolan, Masti Rogers: Is there a conflict of interest here? What is your response?

questions 1For Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach and town board members Thomas Boehm, Thomas Dolan, Peter Masti, and Dawn Rogers, and Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington: We’ve been waiting to read about Kerry Thompson’s son……(sons)…..I and have been wondering why his other son, Tyler Thompson, a teenager who is now  been hired to work in the Coeymans police department as a police dispatcher, and who drives like a f’n maniac was not charged with anything, not even a defective equipment ticket, when he obviously was driving at excessive speed on Rt. 143 on the corner at Aquetuck Road, could not make the corner, took out the at least one mailbox, AND hit another vehicle. Allegedly no tickets were issued., no report filed, no investigation launched, no charges brought. We need to know why? Perhaps you can answer this question, Mr Kerry Thompson: Why did your kid get away with this when we get stopped for not signalling a turn and slapped with a ticket? We want to know Why?!?

For Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach and town board members Thomas Boehm, Thomas Dolan, Peter Masti, and Dawn Rogers, and Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington: Did you know that Coeymans police chief Darlington is the officer that broke up the party that Coeymans police lieutenant Kerry Thompson’s son was at and no one was arrested – nothing even is listed on the police blotter about it.   It was decided that all information regarding this incident is to be “swept under the rug” at the closed door executive meeting with the PD at Tuesday night’s Coeymans’ town board meeting. We want to know why that happened.
 
question 6For Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach and town board members Thomas Boehm, Thomas Dolan, Peter Masti, and Dawn Rogers, and Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington, and for RCS CSD superintendant schools Allen R. McCartney, and the RCS board of education: Danielle Crosier (Coeymans PT police officer) was given hiring preference by listing an address in the town  of Coeymans when she does not actually live there.  Crosier also has not done the training to be an SRO and isn’t eligible to even attend the training until she has been employed full-time for a year, and she is just now getting hired full time. This means that she is actually unqualified to be a police security office in the schools and is essentially a liability to the RCS school district and to the town of Coeymans if something happens and she doesn’t have training to properly deal with it. The unconfirmed rumor is alos that  she is Kerry Thompson’s GIRLFRIEND. So, elected officials and public employees, what’s the story? Is this true or false?
 
For Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach and town board members Thomas Boehm, Thomas Dolan, Peter Masti, and Dawn Rogers, and Coeymans police chief Gregory DarlingtonRyan Johnson is supposedly undercover with the DEA yet he sits at Coeymans PD everyday socializing and also goes out in uniformed patrol and takes overtime shifts, which should be a violation of his contract with the DEA. Why is he getting paid to work for the DEA but hangs out at Coeymans PD with Chief Darlington all day not doing much drug enforcement work (he is also still listed as a FT officer with Coeymans).  So what do we have here, another case of double-dipping?

question people signsFor Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach and town board members Thomas Boehm, Thomas Dolan, Peter Masti, and Dawn Rogers, and Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington, and Coeymans town justice Phillip CrandallThis blog recently reported an allegedly illegal search of a resident’s home, arrest of the resident and his partner, illegal interrogation of a minor on school premises, and multiple felony and misdemeanor charges being brought on the basis of a facially unconstitutional search warrant in violation of the 4th Amendment to the United States Constitution issued by town justice Phillip Crandall. We obtained the documents and posted them on this blog. So, gentlemen and ladies, what’s the story? Do we file a Notice of Claim and bring a lawsuit against the town of Coeymans for violation of civil rights or do we have it all wrong? Just tell us the documents we published are fake and that will be the end of it. We’re waiting.

Editor’s Note: And while you’re at it, investigate Coeymans rogue cop Ryan Johnson’s sworn statement (Phil, you state in the search warrant he provided a written statement that you relied on.). Does it specifically state what he expected to find (but didn’t) and the facts upon which his expectation was based (such as the statements of known drug addicts!). We really do want to know.
 
For Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach and town board members Thomas Boehm, Thomas Dolan, Peter Masti, and Dawn Rogers, and Coeymans police chief Gregory DarlingtonAlso  Jason Albert (a FT officer) spends an awful lot of time at the “Getty”(now Citgo) or in the Coeymans police department office all day not doing any police work . This is a very poor use of taxpayer dollars.   The joke around town is that the “Getty” mart  is the new Coeymans PD Substation. How does the town of Coeymans and the Coeymans police chief justify this in the face of recently hiring three new police trainees? How many police offices does a small town need anyway? That’s assuming they are doing what they’re supposed to be doing!

For RCS CSD superintendent Allen R. McCartney and RCS middle school principal Pam Black, and the members of the RCS board of education: Last week at the RCS middle school a reader’s grandson, who is in 7th grade was beat up by 2 students, who got him on the ground and were holding him down and choking him. This all happened during recess right outside of principal Pam Black’s office window. and not one of the teacher aides (Teacher’s aide? That’s a huge joke where the RCS CSD is concerned). who were assigned that recess saw these 2 students on top of the reader’s grandson beating/choking him and didn’t help him! It wasn’t until the reader’s grandson’s friend got scared and had to run into the building and tell the principal that his friend was outside at recess and being beat/choked by 2 other students. The reader told his/her daughter to file a complaint/lawsuit against the school district but she said the principal said that if these 2 abusive students get into any more trouble she’s going to automatically press charges on them!  We can’t understand what in the hell is going on at the RCS middle school that a child can be beaten/choked by 2 other students, especially when we have the assurances of the RCS CSD superintendent Allen R. McCartney that the provisions of the New York State Dignity Act (NYS Anti-bullying law) are being enforced in the RCS CSD schools. Why are we paying an incompetent principal, Pam Black, and inattentive teacher aids to supervise kids on recess and still having our kids attacked, traumatized and abused. Can you explain this situation superintendent McCartney?

question 5Finally, this one is for Ravena mayor John Bruno and the members of the village of Ravena village council members Martin Case, William Bailey, Nancy Warner and Rocco Persico :  Some time ago, on Camille Drive, Coeymans town code enforcement officer and a local attorney, allegedly  Michael Biscone, developed the Camille Drive properties and buried a natural waterway. Since then, there have been numerous instance sof flooding and sewer/sewerage problems on or near 9W and in the village of Ravena. The DEC has been levying fines galore but you haven’t been talking much about them. Now your digging up streets in the village without explanation. We’d like to know what the fines are and how much the village of Ravena has been paying to the DEC in fines. We’d like to know the details of the problem. We’d like to know how you all got away with buring creeks for your own profit and while causing these problems the taxpayers of this community have to pay the bill! Can you tell us that, mayor Bruno? How about you, village council members Martin Case, William Bailey, Nancy Warner, and Rocco Persico? Got any truthful answers?

Our next articles will be asking very serious questions about what’s going on in the town of New Baltimore, and another will address the conspiracy in Ravena-Coeymans against the Ravena-Coeymans Teen and Youth Activities Center. Stay Tuned! It’s going to get really scary (Susan O’Rorke, Diane Jordan, Christopher Norris, Janet Angelis, and others had better take cover!)

Ravena-Coeymans Police State + Ignorant Town Justice = Treason!

We believe that this situation in the Town of Coeymans is so serious, we feel it is tantamount to Treason!

Recent events centering on the activities of the Coeymans Police and the issuance of crazy search warrants by at least one Coeymans town justice, Phillip Crandall, at the request of a very problematic local rogue Coeymans police officer, Ryan Johnson, who apparently lied his way into a local family’s home on an allegedly unlawful search warrant; the fact that a local youth was brutally apprehended by that same Ryan Johnson and the youth was prosecuted and spent 45 days in Albany County Jail for being in possession of his own prescription meds. A pattern of indifference and abuse in the Ravena-Coeymans community, civil rights violations, all have gotten this blog’s attention, and worse still, this Editor’s hackles up. This community needs some very serious fixing. (Click on this link for our latest report: Police State in Ravena-Coeymans? You’re kidding. Right?)

Article III Section 3 of the Constitution of the United States reads:

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in … in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.

TREASON When Police And Judges Conspire to Steal Our Constitutional Rights And Violate Our Laws

TREASON
When Police And Judges Conspire to Steal Our Constitutional Rights
And Violate Our Laws

Police and Judges, our Elected Officials take a solemn oat of office to defend the United States Constitution and to Uphold the Laws of the United States. It’s the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the Amendments to the Constitution that Grant Americans and even Foreigners on American Soil the Rights of Our Cherished American Democracy. But when the police and law enforcement, judges, and our elected officials, whether they are in Washington, D.C., or in Ravena or Coeymans, New York, abuse citizens, ignore their rights, and scoff the laws and the Constitution, that spells
T-R-E-A-S-O-N.
It spells D-O-M-E-S-T-I-C  T-E-R-R-0-R-I-S-M. When law enforcement and judges, and elected officials ignore the laws of this state and country and remain ignorant of the Constitution they subvert the American system of democracy on American soil; they are by definition, T-E-R-R-O-R-I-S-T-S. Anyone who supports or aids them or does nothing to prevent their activities is an accessory aiding and abetting D-O-M-E-S-T-I-C  T-E-R-R-0-R-I-S-M. Makes good sense, doesn’t it?

Village of Ravena Traitors

We have reported on multiple violations of civil rights by Ravena mayor John Bruno and Ravena trustee Nancy Warner, aided and abetted by Ravena council members Martin “Marty” Case, a teacher, Rocco Persico, a school psychologist, and William “Bill” Bailey, a dunce. Numerous Notices of Claim have recently been filed against the Ravena mob for their violations of civil rights guaranteed by the Consititution of the United States. Ravena mayor John Bruno and his associates on the Ravena village council, Case, Persico, Bailey and Warner are traitors!

Town of Coeymans Traitors

We have reported on multiple violations of civil rights by the Coeymans town board members Thomas “Tom” Boehm, Thomas “Tom” Dolan, Dawn Rogers, and Peter Masti. Numerous Notices of Claim have recently been filed against the Town of Coeymans town board for their violations of civil rights guaranteed by the Consititution of the United States. The Coeymans town board members, because they have been indifferent to the injustice and multiple violations of civil rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States and to uphold their solemn oath to serve the people of this community are traitors!

The Judges of the Town Court of Coeymans and the Coeymans Police Department

The judges of the Town Court of Coeymans, George Dardiani and Phillip Crandall, having taken solemn oaths of office but remaining ignorant of the Constitution of the United States and the laws they have promised to faithfully interpret, but being ignorant, misinterpret those laws, are pawns in the hands of corrupt and self-serving law enforcement officers on the Coeymans Police Department, who, in violation of every principle of laws and order, violate their oaths of office and intimidate, retaliate, offend and abuse the community they have pledged to serve and to protect. The judges of the Town Court of Coeymans, George Dardiani and Phillip Crandall, have aided and abetted the unlawful and unconstitutional misconduct of the Coeymans Police Department and so have violated the very principles they have promised to faithfully protect. The judges of the Town Court of Coeymans, because they have remained ignorant and indifferent to the corruption of our laws and their currying favor with the Coeymans Police Department are traitors, because they undermine and erode the citizen’s faith and trust in the American judicial system. (To see the notorious unlawful search warrant issued by Coeymans town justice Phillip Crandall, for rogue Coeymans cop, Ryan Johnson, click on this link: Unlawful Search Warrant.)

The law enforcement officers of the Coeymans Police Department by actively persecuting residents and citizens, by abusing civil rights of residents and citizens, by selectively and preferentially enforcing laws and favoring their kin and associates, have treacherously violated their oaths of office and have made a mockery of law enforcement. They have themselves cast a blind eye to the unlawful conduct of their fellow officers and hav condoned abuse of residents and citizens. They have protected and preferentially treated their family and friends who have broken laws. They have proactively persecuted citizens by perverting the law and its procedures. They have knowingly closed their eyes and ears to the complaints of citizens. They have violated our civil rights with impunity and indifference. They are, in short, traitors, because they undermine the very substance of the freedoms guaranteed by the United States Constitution and its Amendments.

No Cuomo or Obama Police State for Our Community!

No Cuomo or Obama Police State for Our Community!

Because these public officials, public servants, public employees are engaging in conduct that serves the purposes of foreign terrorists, and because by their unlawful and unconstitutional misconduct erode the faith of the Americans in this community of Ravena-Coeymans, they subvert the good intentions and designs of the Founding Fathers in drafting the Constitution and Bill of Rights, both of which were drafted to protect the rights and freedoms of the American people. Our rights and freedoms. When a group subverts the highest law in the land it injures the United States and insults its people; such groups when on American soil are called Domestic Terrorists.

This blog has faithfully reported numerous instances of violations and offences by local elected officials, such as Ravena mayor John Bruno, Ravena council woman Nancy Warner; by elected officials on the Coeymans town board such as Thomas Boehm. Thomas Dolan, Dawn Rogers, and Peter Masti; by members of the New Baltimore town board Susan O’Rorke and Christopher Norris and their protegés; by the judges on the village and town courts of Ravena and Coeymans, Harold Warner, George Dardiani, and Phillip Crandall, and  by law enforcement officers on the Coeymans town police force, by the Coeymans police chief, Gregory Darlington, Coeymans police officers Gerald Deluca, Ryan Johnson, Kerry Thompson, and others, whose silence is as damaging as the others’ public misconduct.

Almost everyone in the Ravena-Coeymans community has been affected by the treason of these scandalous men and women who have filled minds with fear and anxiety rather than with the promise of justice, fairness, and security.

Elected officials who do not do their jobs, judges who remain ignorant and aid and abet rogue law enforcement and issue writs that violate laws and civil rights, and police officers who by their condunct make a mockery of law enforcement must no longer be tolerated. They must go the route of all traitors and terrorists.

I PUBLICLY ACCUSE THE INDIVIDUALS ABOVE OF TREASON AND DOMESTIC TERRORISM.

I PUBLICLY CALL UPON THIS COMMUNITY TO EXERCISE THEIR RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES GRANTED BY THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES, THE BILL OF RIGHTS, THE LAWS OF THIS STATE, AND THE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES TO DEMAND THE REMOVAL OF THE TRAITORS AND DOMESTIC TERRORISTS FROM OUR VILLAGE HALL, TOWN HALL, OUR COURTS AND OUR POLICE DEPARTMENT!

I PUBLICLY CALL UPON THE CITIZENS OF THE VILLAGE OF RAVENA, THE TOWN OF NEW BALTIMORE, AND THE TOWN OF COEYMANS TO RAISE THEIR VOICES AGAINST THE BAD GOVERNMENT AND MALTREATMENT WE ARE RECEIVING FROM OUR PUBLIC OFFICIALS, PUBLIC SERVANTS AND PUBLIC EMPLOYEES, AND TO DEMAND THAT IF THEY CAN’T SERVE AS PROMISED TO RESIGN OR GET THROWN OUT.

treason-hang

Figuratively speaking, of course!

Ravena Laws Unconstitutional! Violation of Protected First Amendment Rights AGAIN!

Our Advice: Wear a Wire. Protect yourself when you talk to the Ravenazis or the Coeymanazis, when you enter their dens, when they approach you. New York State is a “one-party state” which means that if you are a party to a conversation you can tape the conversation without having to tell anyone. They’re crazy-paranoid now that they know we know they can be taped. If they behave themselves—which is highly unlikely—they have nothing to fear; if they don’t behave—which is very likely—you’ve got evidence and they have a problem. Ask mayor John Bruno and Cathy Deluca…they know!

Part One of a Multipart Exposé

All About Ravena, the Coeymans Police Department, Un-American Activities, Rights Violations, and Criminality Right Under Your Noses!

The Village of Ravena is Probably One of the Most Corrupt and Criminal Organizations Existing in The United States!

Mayor John "Black Mamba" Bruno and His Hand-Picked Hatchet-Heads Nancy Warner, Martin Case, Rocco Persico, William Bailey, Annette Demitraszek Burn the Constitution Daily

Mayor John “Black Mamba” Bruno and His Hand-Picked Hatchet-Heads
Nancy Warner, Martin Case, Rocco Persico, William Bailey, Annette Demitraszek
Burn the Constitution Daily

Or the Village of Ravena is the Perfect Example of What Can Go Horribly Wrong in a Community and its Government!

Mayor John “Black Mamba”*  Bruno of the village of Ravena, New York, a small backwater ghetto suppressed by a gang of leftovers of the once flourishing Albany Democrat Machine is the godfather of a bunch of hooligan hatchet-heads who make up his royal court: village council members Nancy Warner, William “Bill” BaileyMartin “Marty” Case, and Rocco Persico, and hand-picked appointee village clerk, Annette Demitraszek. The Ravena village board members call themselves erroenously “trustees” but they can be trusted only to screw local residents and taxpayers, to discriminate against anyone who disagrees with them, to richly reward anyone as crooked as they are (example: the Ravena Health and Fitness Club a.k.a. Cathy Deluca’s playpen).

* As the legend goes, Bruno, once a shiff supervisor at the local cement plant, got his nickname back when he was sleeping on the job at the cement plant and due to his negligence, he burnt up one of the kilns. His coworkers have since called him the “Black Mamba.” At the cement plant he was also known for his unfair practices when it came to promoting his favorites over the qualified. Nothing has changed.

We are uncovering just how criminal and un-American Bruno and his hatchet-heads really are. We recently published an exposé on how Bruno, the village of Ravena village board, and local shyster Michael Biscone, one of the most unethical and sleezy lawyers in the area, attempted to suppress residents’ First Amendment rights of free speech and expression when they wanted to censor the right to speak at public meetings. If you missed that article you can read it at (Click the links!):  Business as Usual in Ravena: Violation of Constitutional Rights! (read our article also on how the Coeymans Police Department suppresses freedom of speech at Coeymans Police Suppress Freedom of Speech!).

Village of Ravena Makes Misleading Application to the Albany County Civil Service Department to Get Cathy Deluca Non-Competitive Civil Service Job Title as Fitness Center Director

We’ve also published a number of articles on this blog about how Ravena’s mummy mayor John Bruno and girlfriend “trustee” Nancy Warner teamed up with Cathy Deluca, the wife of Coeymans police investigator and local thug, Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” Deluca, to illegally spend $40,000 of taxpayer money to buy used fitness equipment, then to create the Ravena Health and Fitness Center (Rats-nest Heap and Fatness Clinic) behind everyone’s back. Then they tried to create a non-competitive civil service position for Cathy Deluca, who has no real qualifications and who’s getting $30,000 of taxpayer money out of the $105,000+ of taxpayer money allocated to fund the RHFC for 2013-2014. By the way, mayor Bruno, Nancy Warner and Cathy Deluca got caught red-handed in their lies to the Albany County Civil Service Department when a local resident obtained their application. Michael Cummings, another local democrat tool and director of the Albany County Civil Service Department had some explaining to do when we caught him with his pants down around his ankles after he approved the application that was incomplete! Ravena had to submit a number of justifications but didn’t and Cummings approved the application anyway! They probably thought they’d never get caught. But we caught them and the cat hit the fan in Albany. We’re still keeping tabs on that little sneaky operation and we’ll continue to report on the local and Albany County Civil Service corruption. Stay tuned!

Cathy Deluca Abuses Local Resident and Tells Him He’s Not Welcome and Gets the Village of Ravena Sued for Her Violation of the Resident’s Protected Constitutional Rights!

Then there’s the happening at the Ravena Health and Fitness Center when a local resident visited the place for a tour and was accosted and abused by Cathy Deluca, who then told him he had to leave, “You’re not welcome here.”  That was a brilliant example of a big mistake and total ignorance by Cathy Deluca and her keepers because it violated a number of constitutionally protected rights and got the village of Ravena and Deluca slaped with a $1,000,000 claim and now they’re facing a lawsuit. Nice going, Cathy.

Cathy Deluca and Accomplice Claude A. Wheeles, a Fitness Center Employee, Lie to Police…Get Criminal Complaint Filed Against them and Another Notice of Claim and Pending Lawsuite against the Village of Ravena!

But that wasn’t enought for Cathy Deluca, greedy tub that she is. Cathy Deluca then made a complaint with the Coeymans Police that the resident “harassed” her—a bare-faced lie—and then told the investigating officer, Jason Albert, that the resident had insulted a patron at the RHFC and that was the reason the resident was thrown out—another bare-faced lie. Based on Cathy Deluca’s lies and the support of one of her employees, Claude A. Wheeles, the Coeymans Police investigated and found nothing. How do we know all of what Deluca and Wheeles told the Coeymans Police was a pack of lies? The whole thing was recorded! Absolutely brilliant! Absolutely delicious! And we have copies of the recordings (both the events during the resident’s visit and Deluca’s performance and Officer Jason Alberts interview of the resident at the Coeymans Police station, where Officer Albert confirms Deluca’s lies.) What a surprise when the resident filed criminal charges against Deluca and Wheels for falsely reporting an incident and conspiracy to commit that crime, both misdemeanors. What a surprise when the village of Ravena’s attorney deposed the resident only to find out that (1) Deluca had lied, (2) that there was a recording of the actual incident, (2) that criminal complaint was filed against Deluca and Wheeles for their lies, (3) that a second Notice of Claim and lawsuit were pending against the village of Ravena, Cathy Deluca, and Claude Wheeles (including also the members of the village of Ravena board) based on Deluca’s and Wheeles’ criminal acts.

Citizen to Mayor John Bruno: Shut up! Or get out!

Ravena mayor John Bruno and hatchet-woman Nancy Warner sat in on the deposition/hearing at which the resident was questioned by the village’s attorney. Mayor Bruno was making wierd noises and being a general jerk and the resident allegedly told him to stop his stupidity or get out. After that, Bruno behaved himself.

Is Mayor Bruno Senile or Just Goofy? The Goofy Godfather

Is Mayor Bruno Senile or Just Goofy?
The Goofy Godfather

This just in: We have a copy of the actual transcript of the 50h hearing. Here’s what the complainant told mayor Bruno:

Complainant (to Bruno): Do you find this funny, Mr Mayor? If you do, please leave. I don’t want you snickering over there. You’ve been doing it several times already. This is not funny.

Attorney: I lost my train of thought.

Complainant (to attorney): I would like to object to Mr Bruno’s snickering and strange little noises that he’s emitting over there.

Attorney: That’s noted on the record.

Complainant: Thank you.

That’s how Ravena’s mayor John Bruno behaves in a legal proceeding, like a two-year old. Is he that senile already?

Ravena Village Clerk Annette Demitraszek Attempts to Avoid Producing Documents in Response to Demands under the New York State Freedom of Information Law and Gets Hit with a Notice of Claim and Possible Lawsuit.

You may have  believed that the village clerk is elected like the town clerk is. But she’s not. She’s appointed by mummy mayor John Bruno. She’s another tool of the un-American, criminal  regime on Mountain Road that calls itself the village of Ravena government. For several months Annette Demitraszek has been receiving demands for documents from residents trying to make sense of the craziness that goes on in the village offices and Demitraszek, apparently under mayor Bruno’s boney thumb and with Nancy Warner breathing down her back, plays the game and does her best to hide what she can and refuse to produce what she can. Well that worked fine for many years UNTIL NOW.

Demitraszek and her keepers had managed for a while to get the executive director of the Committee on Open Government, Robert Freeman, another democrat machine hack in Albany, to listen to their misinformation and then to use Freeman’s words to refuse to respond to F.O.I.L. demands. But when residents demand clarification or an explanation of the silly excuses…DEAD SILENCE. Now Demitraszek, mayor Bruno, the Ravena village board, have been served with a Notice of Claim charging them with obstruction and violation of the provisions of the New York State Freedom of Information Laws. That’s going to be another lawsuit.

The village of Ravena has plenty to hide but those days are gone; now the village of Ravena has to explain their criminality and their un-American activities.


Stay tuned for:

Part Two: Ravena’s Laws Are Unconstitutional—No Loitering? How the village of Ravena, the Coeymans Police Department, and a Jerky-Boy District Attorney, P. David Soares cooperate to violate your rights!

Part Three: The Coeymans Police Department—Scoff-laws in Uniform. How Indifference and Bias Denies You Your Constitutional Rights. (This is a must-read for Coeymans police chief Gregory “DoDo-Cop” Darlington, Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” BoBo-Cop-Deluca, and Officers Jason “what investigation” Albert, Ryan “Psychocop” Johnson, Kerry “it’s hearsay” Thompson)

Part Four: Suing the Town of Coeymans Coeymans Police Department for Obstruction of Justice and Misuse of Public Office. How Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington is going to lose his job and his crooked cops may find themselves doing jail time. So you want to make misdemeanors and felonies disappear, Mr Tom Dolan (Ask Tommy about his son’s escapades and where the charges went) and Dawn Rogers (Ask Dawn about her daughter’s friend the bottle and where the alleged DUI charges went). You might want to ask about how evidence is safeguarded in the Coeymans Police Department or their recipe for hitting parents through their kids. Or you might want to ask how to frame a resident or how to screw up a drug raid for a thimble full of marijuana while the real druggies are in the Ravena offices or the Coeymans PD evidence room (just speculating on this one). Of course, the Coeymans Police would rather hassle a bunch of kids congregating on a public gazebo than go after real criminals like Scott Lenden and his helpers (theft, possession of stolen goods, criminal tresspass). But then Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca was investigator on that case and didn’t move his fat arse on it for six months until the victims called in the Albany County Sheriff’s team. Or how about arresting a kid for possessing his own prescription drugs and having him jailed for 45 days…on the information provided by a known, convicted druggie? An what about the recent botched up drug raids? Any comment, chief Darlington or admin assistant Kerry Thompson? And what happend to the investigations of Cathy Deluca and Claude Wheeles on falsely reporting an incident—one that never happened but Deluca and Wheeles collaborated and lied about it—maybe Officer Jason Albert, chief Gregory Darlington, or maybe Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca can provide some answers. How does evidence leak out, Mr Deluca, Mr Darlington, Officer Albert?

Part Five: Going after the Ravena Coeymans Selkirk Central School District Board of Education, a Turncoat Superintendent of Schools, and the Teachers Union Lackeys Voted to the RCS Board of Education. How’d that all happen? We’ve got some information and facts that are going to knock your socks off and have some people soiling their undies. The real facts behind what cooking on the BoE and what a suicidal, ignorant school district has done to itself by handing over $40 million to crooks!


Anyone who questions what we write can just ask his or her questions at a public village or town meeting. Mayor John Bruno and the Ravena village trustees Nancy Warner, Bill Bailey, Marty Case, Rocco Persico,or Supervisor Stephen Flach and the town board members Tom Dolan, Dawn Rogers, Peter Masti,  Tom Boehm, or Coeymans Police Department chief Gregory Darlington will be more than pleased to put up a smoke screen and tell you the lies you’d like to hear. Try it. Let us know how you make out.

New Baltimore: Coeymans’ Evil Twin to the South

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this page NOW or get your parent to supervise your visit!


Special thanks to fingers-superglued-to-the-keyboard Joan Ross of New Baltimore for her special efforts in distributing this blog to her friends in New Baltimore and the Town Hall. We can always rely on old Jealous Joan and Bitter-balless Bob to do our work for us.


What Can We Even Start To Say About A Town that Sports All of 14 Mediocre Businesses and 2 Dying Churches, No Schools, A Deadbeat Town Board, A Moron Town Court, A Couple Of Rabid Pseudo-Sophisticates, Plenty of Real Estate For Sale, One of the Highest Tax Rates in the State, No Services…Google Anywhere Else and You’ll Get Hundreds of Hits.
Google New Baltimore and Get…Nothin’?

I only hope we're reading this right!

I only hope we’re reading this right!

Why would that be, you might well ask?!?

Another question we might well ask is: Why is it that small towns like Coeymans and New Baltimore have attained legendary status as hotbeds of injustice, conspiracy, corruption, inefficiency, and downright nastiness?

Well, back to our subject: The entire town of New Baltimore is about as big as Ravena, NY, in terms of population, and it’s just as corrupt. For example, the Town of New Baltimore has an area of a total 43.1 sq mi and a population (2010) of about 3,370 souls, well, most of them have souls. Compare this with Coeymans, New York, covering a total area of 53.1 sq mi and a population of 7,418 (2010). Both towns are losing population as more people move out looking for a better life.

The Town of New Baltimore consists of several small populated areas, mostly clusters of homes, including Deans Mill, Grapeville, Hannacroix, Medway, New Baltimore Hamlet (on the Hudson River),  Otter Hook, Paradise Hill, Roberts Hill. West Coxsackie is also located in the Town of New Baltimore.

Town in General. The region was part of the Mahican homeland, and was settled around 1700 and was included in early Dutch and English patents. New Baltimore was formed as a town in 1811 from the Town of Coxsackie. In the 200 years not much has been happening if we judge by population growth: in 1900, the town population was 1,536; in 2010 it was 3300 people.

Town Government or the New Baltimore Circus: Puts new meaning into the old dog-and-pony act. Main witch-on-a-stick is supervisor Susan K. O’Rorke (we won’t even mention what people are doing with the “K“) is the main clown. Once a Republican stronghold in its heyday, in the past several decades it has experienced decline, while the town has been run down by the Democrat inner circle over the past several decades, making its own rules and shoehorning its candidates into key positions. Much of this was due to the poor leadership in the Republican party and the party’s tendency to play fair against unscrupulous local democrats. The Republican party is starting to get smart, however, and is learning to fight fire with fire. But I’ve already said too much about politics on an apolitical blog. Where the former supervisor David Louis (wife of Town of New Baltimore Dem = DINO chairman, Diane Louis)  was a bit of a wet mop, the present supervisor is a haridan and not well-respected even by her own board. Not a good administrator, power-crazy, and generally a control freak, ensuring nothing positive gets done.

Like Coeymans, New Baltimore Justice is Badly Broken!

Like Coeymans, New Baltimore Justice is Badly Broken!

Town Justice or All the Justice You Can Buy or Let’s Make a Deal. New Baltimore disbanded its town constabulary years ago and, until recently, was served by the Greene County Sheriff’s Department and the New York State Police, who did a fine job. With the inauguration of a very competent and ethical Greene County Sheriff, Sheriff Greg Seeley, the department collaborated with the Town of New Baltimore and some forward-thinking board members (now extinct) to install a satellite station at the New Baltimore town hall. Sheriff Seeley’s deputies have been doing a great job.

Unlike the situation in Coeymans, NY, with its corrupt police department and town court, the problem in New Baltimore is only (only?) the corrupt New Baltimore town court. It’s not so much corrupt, really, as just incompetent and ignorant. We’ve written quite a bit about town and village courts and, like the moronic village court of Ravena under Harold “Hal” Warner, and the idiotic Coeymans town court under in-justices Phillip Crandall and George Dardiani, the New Baltimore town court fits the bill with a poster-boy of ignorant town justices Joseph Farrell and his crony, Lee Davis, both tools of the Democrat machine in New Baltimore.

The Clowns are In Town!Actually in Town Hall.

The Clowns are In Town!
Actually in Town Hall.

Town Politics the International Unemployed Clowns Association Meets Regularly in the New Baltimore Town Hall. The clowns’  new name: the New Baltimore Town Board [of Clowns]. Again, lousy with Dems, the board is generally dysfunctional and lorded over by the witch-on-a-stick mentioned above, town super-biatch Susan O’Rourke. Over the years most residents, as in Coeymans, have become so disgusted with the games the town has been playing for years that the majority avoid the meetings, making them a convenient playground for the Democrat club and its members. That’s really too bad and people need to get involved and take back their town.

Church. Broken and Split.

Church. Broken and Split.

Town Churches. 1 and one-half and dying. The town claims to have two churches: one in the boonies and one of the new-fangled feel good congregations. The single church in the hamlet/national historic district lasted more than 175 years before a woman pastor was assigned who, contrary to every rule in the book, immediately started making changes and spending money. It wasn’t long before she drove out most of the generations-old congregation and depleted the handsome financial portfolio. Recently you had to drive by to see a “Save Your Church” sign out front. You had to snigger a bit because it wasn’t our church any more. So, like the town hall, the old church has suffered under the ravaging control of a woman pastor with a feminist agenda, whose wild spending makes Michelle Obama look like a black austerity measure.

That brings us to the subject of schools. New Baltimore can’t afford its own schools so it buses the students either to Coxsackie or to the scandal-ridden Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk schools. It’s scandalous what’s being done to taxpayers in New Baltimore. As if it weren’t enough being raped with some of the highest taxes in the state just to live in 18th century conditions, a large part of the town has to pay RCS central school district school tax to a district that has one of the highest per student costs in the state ($21,000 per student) and one of the lowest regional graduation rates (in the mid-70%), compared with almost any regional school.

[Editor’s note: While the RCS school district has in the past been made the whipping boy of the local rag media, this blog has done much to draw public attention to the culprits, largely the teachers union, New York State United Teachers or NYSUT, and a group of Coeymanazis in the Ravena-Coeymans area. The attention has largely silenced the evil-doers and has allowed the non-teacher faction on the RCS CSD school board to clean things up and get some real work done. Under the leadership of Dr Alan McCartney the district started to turn around but in recent weeks, McCarntney’s luster has begun to fade. Is he just tired or have the Coeymanazi forces gotten to him? He’s either losing steam or pulling back.]

 

A lethal combination of high costs and low graduation rates!

A lethal combination of high costs and low graduation rates!

Town Services. The Town services run into the negative. Yes, the roads are paved, somewhat. But the New Baltimore Thruway Department is a bunch of woodchucks brandishing shovels and following a truck with some asphalt. All they seem to be able to do is throw a shovel or two in a pothole, watch it steam for a spell, while leaning on their shovels, and when the excitement over the steaming asphalt abates, they move on to fill another pothole and watch it, etc. This goes on until a corpse would get bored watching! Well, the problem is that they’re all on salaries paid by New Baltimore residents and they’re wasting time, money, equipment, and supplies–and don’t seem to give a damn. Once it rains and a couple of cars roll over the “patches” the pothole’s back and the ritual repeats, and repeats, and repeats…

bad-waterWe have a public sewer system but no drinking water. One of the previous administrations about five years ago spent a bundle on a project to bring municipal water to the Hamlet, where most of the wells were contaminated by the old septic tanks. Well, the battle that was waged by a handful of amoral lunatics who were, in fact, newcomers to the town, and who had nothing better to do, ran the town into its own cesspool of hate and fratricide in opposition to the water project. The Ross-Luckacovic coalition and its band of what Joan Ross affectionately called Newbaltimorons, nearly destroyed the community and the repercussions can still be felt in the hamlet. John Luckacovic, one of the hate mongers, moved to Columbia county with his partner, Eleanor Oldham. Bob “Robby” Ross and Joan Ross still reside in the hamlet where they still spew their venom. Idle hands do the devil’s work, it seems.

But that’s not the end of the water fantasies that seem to occupy the empty spaces between Democrat ears in New Baltimore. While Joan Ross and Bitter Bob and their loose-canon ally, John Luckacovic, managed to nearly destroy the community with their misinformation, lies, and backstabbing, the Democrats in the Town hall had wet-dreams about a huge recreational water park in the town, new NYS thruway construction, etc. etc. But hamlet residents would be allowed (thanks to the Rosses and Luckacovic team) to go dry. But, again, fantasies and idiot’s dreams are doomed to dry up…just like the New Baltimore Reformed Church’s patrimony, portfolio, and congregation, and just as the Town of New Baltimore is doing as we write. Drying up.

Refresh Yourself With New Baltimore WaterSmall Government at Work for You

Refresh Yourself With New Baltimore Water
Small Government at Work for You

The anti-water campaign was a travesty of free speech but a banquet of misinformation and backstabbing. Unconfirmed reports say that John Lucakcovic is close to the Coeymans gang, most notably Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” Deluca and his Coeymanazis. If that’s true, Joan and Bob Ross wouldn’t be able to resist getting involved.  We may never know the truth because they don’t have the cojones to do their mischief in daylight and work by ambush and darkness: typical of the rodents they are.

Overall, the town is dying thanks to high taxes, no real businesses, and general apathy. This paves the road for vultures from downstate to take advantage of cheap property values and an indifference to local culture to come in and destroy almost 300 years of history. The people moving in and displacing the locals who can no longer afford the area are nasty, asocial, and controlling. What’s worse, they find it easy to cajole the local politicos and have their way.

Carpetbaggers are in town!

Carpetbaggers are in town!

Here’s an example: In the National Historic District, through some corrupt finagling, a downstater bought up several homesteads on the river, demolished the historic buildings, and erected what can be best described as a chicken coop on steroids, an absolute eyesore. But, somehow they got the permit to put it up and desecrate the historic district. Small town greed and big town money at work, it seems.

To the man (and woman) all of the damage that has been done to New Baltimore has been done by outsiders coming in, whether you consider town hall, the murderous water campaign in the hamlet (Ross and Luckacovic), the indifference to the local historical culture and architecture, etc. The ME First! people have come and walked all over the local people. What’s next, oil derricks in the hamlet, Ms O’Rourke? I wouldn’t put it past her, really.

We can, of course, thank the carrion-eaters in the area, like Tracey Burton, real estate monger, of the real estate office Victoria Real Estate, who is the ambulance chaser of local properties. Burton has the morals of Stalin and is about as loyal as Benedict Arnold. But she’s somehow gotten her foot in the New Baltimore door (one shudder’s to think how she did that…orally or anally or…). She’s one to be wary of (from personal experience) she’ll make it yours and you’ll have to make it shine while she collects her ill-gotten commission and leaves you to figure out what went wrong. (Sellers be very wary. She’ll get you dragged into court for her stories and then wish you, “Good luck!“).  She’s typical, though.

Town Businesses. 14 Nothing worth noting.  Most business tends to skip over New Baltimore to settle in business-friendly Coxsackie, the next town south of New Baltimore, and one that’s showing considerable promise.

Conclusion

brokenAs we develop our research and our collaborators canvas, sort and send in new information, we hope to provide residents, taxpayers, and investigating authorities with little-known facts about what is going on in New Baltimore.

We expect that the information and the facts as they are checked and verified will provide the same material for investigation as our first year of operation has done in the case of the village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans.

Because we have made such headway in garnering the trust and confidence of our friends and neighbors in Coeymans, and the word has gone out to surrounding communities, our work has been made significantly easier in the case of New Baltimore, because New Baltimore residents have been watching our successes in Coeymans.

New Baltimore Democrats: You need to consider the alternatives. You have a bunch of losers in the New Baltimore town hall and you need to get some winners in there. Winners like the people who made New Baltimore a thriving, welcoming, friendly community; not an exclusive club and the town hall their clubhouse! Even the churches are suffering in the present climate of hypocrisy!

 

Exposé: The Lost Felonies

For Some Time Now We’ve Spared Coeymans Town Justice Phillip A. Crandall, Sr. Because He Seemed to be Less Corrupt or Ignorant than the likes of George Dardiani or Harold “Hal” Warner and his Tribe. Looks Like We May Have Been Mistaken.

When Ignorant Judges are Intimidated by Fast-Talking Lawyers: Criminals Go Free!

When Ignorant Judges are Intimidated by Fast-Talking Lawyers: Criminals Go Free!

Please don’t misunderstand! I’m not soft on real criminals or crime. But I am in favor of a well-informed, fair, sensitive and compassionate, trustworthy and independent judiciary. I feel that if there’s solid evidence of a crime committed with real malice aforethought then it deserves severe treatment. If there’s no crime or no solid evidence, let it go and move on. But when judges are unabashedly corrupt, ignorant, unethical, and have become tools of political agendas and sleezebag lawyers or bobo cops, intimidating the innocent and punishing simple mistakes as crimes, then I go for the throat.

We’ve reported on the dire state of justice in New York State and the problems with the town and village court system where the all the education a judge needs is a high-school diploma, knows nothing about law, and might even be the local electrician or dog-catcher. That’s the situation in town and justice courts in New York State. It’s the situation right here in our own communities, especially in Ravena-Coeymans and in New Baltimore. The judges are ignorant, the don’t know the law, are barely literate, and pee themselves when they have to face a lawyer. (We published Justice in Name Only: Town and Village Courts in which we report on the terrible state of the town and village courts.)

Hiding His Intelligent Look
(and doing quite well)
Ravena Village Justice
Harold “Hal” Warner

But in Ravena-Coeymans we have too many cases of the “disappearing felony” going on. And in other cases we have the Coeymanazis and their Coeymanazi judges using law enforcement and the town and village courts to harrass, to intimidate, to retaliate. The corruption is rampant and the criminals benefit. For example, we have the Coeyman’s cops arresting and charging local juveniles with misdemeanors and felonies while the cops refuse to investigate residents’ complaints of harassment. At the same time, they’re using their police powers to retaliate and intimidate and harass, and the courts delay justice or refuse it outright. (See our article, There’s a F*&$%@% Elephant in the Room!!!)

Read our articles Albany DA Soares Continues Retaliation, Persecution , David Soares Has Lost All Dignity, Coeymans P.D. – Soares – Albany District Attorney – Times Union Affair,  Albany County DA Has Perfected Stupidity (Opinion) to learn more about Albany D.A. P. David Soares.

Albany D.A. Soares

Albany D.A. Soares

We can see the corruption at work in Ravena-Coeymans almost on a daily basis but that’s just the lowest level of this cancer. The real festering sore is in Albany, in the Albany District Attorney’s Office. The District Attorney picks and chooses the cases he wants to prosecute. He then assigns one of his staff monkeys the case and it’s prosecuted in the courts. So, when you have a balless wonder like Pudenda David Soares in the DA office, he’s a tool used by the local politicos and the local political machine to reward or to punish, you have a really seriously corrupt system working on the community. The political godfathers get you elected but you have to play the game and do what you’re told. So we have the situation in Ravena-Coeymans where the already dysfunctional town and village court system is at its worst, we have either mindless cowards or Coeymanazis on the bench, the tool in the DA office in Albany, Soares, ensures that local machines get what they want. (For a more tongue-in-cheek report on the incest that’s going on read our article, Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca–Coeymans’ Own Bobo-Cop).

WTF Waddaya Doin' Philly? Are you some kinda Schmuck?

WTF!!!
Waddaya Doin’ Philly?
Are you some kinda Schmuck?

So back to coeymans town justice Philip A. Crandal, Sr. We reported on a local case where a local business had to go to the New York State police and Albany County Sheriff to force the Coeymans P.D. to investigate major theft and vandalism. That was late in 2011.  After six months of getting nowhere with the Coeymans P.D. who had assigned Coeymanazi-in-Chief Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca (a.k.a. Bo-Bo-Cop) to investigate, and nothing happening, the NYS Police and the Albany County Sheriff were called in by the business and then the shite hit the fan. You should have been there to see Darlington and Deluca peeing themselves. Well, almost immediately, Scott Linden, the perp, was apprehended and charged. That was in mid-2012.

The Coeymans Taxpayer

The Coeymans Taxpayer

We’ve received unconfirmed reports that the perp, Scott Linden, appeared before Coeymans town justice Phillip A. Crandall Sr., who pretty much turned the perp loose with a slap on the paw. Now, local business owners, based on that typical example, you can expect that any criminal can trespass on your property, damage your inventory, and make off with a vehicle, and if Bobo-cop Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca is in charge of the investigation, it won’t get investigated. If the Coeymans cops under the Coeymanzi leadership of chief Dodo-cop Darlington are in charge of going after the perp, the perp can look forward to walking the streets unimpaired. And finally, when Bobo Cop is forced to investigate and the Coeymans cops are forced to arrest, the Coeymans courts will turn him loose anyway. That must be how the Coeymans machine gets its voter support. The Albany D.A. David Soares is in charge of prosecuting these criminals but if he’d rather do a plea bargain at the expense of the law-abiding residents, he’d sooner let the perp loose on the community rather than prosecute. That way Soares can get a piece of the action. So, who’s still wondering about the business friendliness of good ol’ Coeymans? Add to that toxic mix the perp who hires local shyster Michael J. Biscone who will do his magic at town court to make the felonies go away…for a hefty price, of course. All for the good and in the best interests of law-abiding Coeymans residents and taxpayers. Now doesn’t that make you fell all warm and fuzzy…and safe? NOT!

Actually, in our article published on August 24, 2012, Dardiani and Biscone Subject to Discipline! we called for disciplining both Coeymans town justice George Dardiani and shyster Michael Biscone (representing perp Scott Lendin). At that time we reported that Biscone should have been held in contempt of court by Dardiani, when Biscone told the judge, Dardiani, that he wasn’t going to bring in his client! Why? Because Biscone said the Coeymans police had screwed up the paperwork! Click this  link to the article and read about the three-ring circus we call Coeymans!

Oye! Oye! Circus is in session!

We now have an unconfirmed report that Phillip A. Crandall, a Coeymans town justice, has joined the ranks of the corrupt, he’s earned his stripes as a confirmed Coeymans Clown, and as a blemish in the New York State Unified Court System. Why? You might well ask.

Coeymanazi Building Inspector Conrad: Good fences make good neighbors! More Laws Better…

Local News Is Fast Becoming Scarce  If Not Ultra-Commonplace. A Sure Sign that The Times Useless and Its Step-cousin, the Ravena News Herald are Scandal-Starved.

boys on fenceJudging from the front page of the Ravena News Herald and from the items–they’re not stories, actually, nor are they professional journalism, by the way–the local-bulletin-board-wannabe-newspaper is fast becoming advertisements in disguise  while continuing as a local propaganda rag. (Example: “Free” kempo karate demos at library for children; parents will pay after the kids get a taste. Can’t a library just be a library anymore?) Just look at the latest edition of the Ravena News Herald to see what we mean.

In a front-page piece on the “Scouts”  meeting in the Roman Catholic Church of St Patrick in Ravena, we read that

“…dozens of community members gathered at St. Patrick’s Church in Ravena to witness the Cub and Boy Scouts of Troop 1067 reaffirm their commitment to reverence, “to be reverent toward God, faithful in his [Ed. note: God’s?] religious duties and to respect the beliefs of others” in accordance with the law of the Scout put forth by the Boy Scouts of America.”

That bit of scurrilous reporting which, if you read the news outside of Ravena-Coeymans, is the epitome of misinformation and hypocrisy, given the BSA’s refusal to stop being a pillar of discrimination, exclusion and hate, where even the federal government has long ago legislated against such practices. I think it’s the part about to “respect the beliefs of others,” that got my attention. But more on that some other time.

But the most glaring first-page gaffe is the caption under the large photo on the first page. (Can you find it?) More about this later on.

This was followed by a rather lengthy “prayer” read by Brian Searles, BSA troop master, which runs more than 144 words and takes up 2/3 of the first page text. That “prayer” runs along the lines of the Prayer of St Francis of Assisi that starts, “Lord, make me an instrument of your peace…”

“Dear Lord, bless all those everywhere who contribute to shape the hearts, minds and bodies of young people. Let us remember what they have taught and apply it daily.”

I have some serious questions as to the “what they have been taught,” and if the scout leader is referring to the explicit policy of discrimination and hate espoused, defended, and ipso factotaught” by the Boy Scouts of America espouse with regard to certain groups. Searles continues:

“When facing deceit and dishonesty, let us be trustworthy. If we see hypocrisy and faithlessness, let us be loyal. Where disregard for others and where materialism prevails, let us be helpful. In an atmosphere of ill manner, let us be courteous. Where some measure manliness in brutality and crudeness, let us be kind. Though law-breaking and rule-scoffing are common, let us be obedient. While others grumble and grouch, let us be cheerful. In an environment blighted by waste and extravagance, let us be thrifty. When confronted with danger and temptation, let us be brave. As we see filth and pollution everywhere, let us be clean. While witnessing impiety and irreligion, let us remember to be reverent. In short, in a world that has for generation after generation lamented the lack of good examples, let us Scouts stand out, grow up and be real adults.”

Clumsy as Mr Searles plagiarized prayer might be, his complaints are quite clear–we all know what he’s talking about, don’t we?

Actually, had Mr Searles simply read the Prayer of St Francis, maybe someone in the group would have more completely appreciated the intended prayerfulness of the moment and would have actually attempted to live the admonitions promoted by the holy example of the saint, and centuries later distilled shortly before the First World War into the now popular and familiar verses. (To read and download a copy of the Franciscan Peace Prayer I’ve prepared, click this link: The Story Behind the Peace Prayer of St Francis )

It’s rather ironic, too, that these lofty confessions of what our society and community have come to represent: “deceit and dishonesty,” hypocrisy and faithlessness,” “disregard for others,” “materialism,” “ill manner” ( must admit, I’m at a loss to really understand what that is supposed to mean), “manliness in brutality and crudeness,” “law-breaking and rule-scoffing,” where our neighbors “grumble and grouch,” and in a culture that confronts us daily with “danger and temptation,” where we find “filth and pollution everywhere,” and in our very churches we witness “impiety and irreligion” (irreligion is an interesting word meaning hostility towards religion. I don’t think that’s the problem though.), “lack of good examples.” In a word, doesn’t this sound like the routine in this community, in the local schools, in the entire Smalbany  region? The entire country–with few exceptions? And let’s ask ourselves how long the Scouts have been in the RCS district? And where do they go and what do they do if they graduate from our schools, move on from the scouts?

We also read in that same issue of the Ravena News Herald that–like Ravena-Coeymans–there’s no news in New Baltimore. We say this because on page 4 (it’s interesting to note that in the News Herald, page 2 reports on “Around the Town” news from Albany, Vorheesville, Rotterdam (?!?), under the heading “New Baltimore,” we read that the ailing, lonely, only church left in New Baltimore is hosting a food and fellowship luncheon. We then turn to page 9 of that same issue and read an exact duplicate of the article. Nice editing. But my point is this: Has New Baltimore descended, deteriorated to such an extent that there’s nothing better to report than to repeat an announcement of a church luncheon?!?

RCS residents pay a buck to read that sort of amateurish, poorly written, unnewsworthy stuff

So we finally come to the stuff of our title, “Coeymanazi Building Inspector Conrad: Good fences make good neighbors?” How does that fit in with the Ravena News Herald and its misshapen and moronic reporting? Read on…

R. Frost (1874-1963)Probably Turning in his Grave!

R. Frost (1874-1963)
Probably Turning in his Grave!

In a misinformative and pitifully distorted version of both American literature and reality, idiot reporter Bryan Rowzee, in the front-age item, “Coeymans. Keeping Coeymans on the map,” Rowzee starts off his item with a quote from Robert Frost’s memorable poem, Mending Wall. But in true News Herald Fashion, Rowzee misinterprets and so falsifies to his readers the meaning of the poem, and does so by taking one familiar line out of the context of the whole poem, similar to what’s done business as usual in the RCS community.

For starters, the poem is a lament of fences, how walls and fences are something that are unnatural:

Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
And spills the upper boulders in the sun;
And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.

And throughout the poem Frost questions the necessity for fences and even characterizes the neighbor who builds the fence (in the poem a stone wall) as being

…like an old-stone savage armed.
He moves in darkness

In fact, Mr Rowzee, Frost’s poem has nothing good to say about walls or fences; in fact, the entire poem is a statement against walls and fences! Mr, Frost, describes his neighbor likening him to a menacing caveman as he puts a rock into the wall, and repeats, “Good fences makes good neighbors.” So, either Mr Rowzee is trying to be cute and is using the Frost quote in total ignorance of what the poem actually says or, Mr Rowzee is being sneaky and using the quote to ridicule Larry Conrad in the article. Difficult to say unless you read the item in the News Herald, and until you reach the paragraph

“Conrad said the town loves growth and wants growth but needs growth that follows the laws created to help the whole community. He said he hopes that this business and others will benefit from clearer zoning maps and believes this may lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.”

Mr Conrad has a motley history of contradictions and obstruction; he’s not much different from any other small-minded, small-town, power-drunk petty official. Of course, Mr Conrad loves walls and fences, they’re unnatural and intended to isolate and obstruct. He’s been building unethical walls in the Coeymans community  for years and has gotten very good at it.

Moreover, there’s nothing small-minded, small-town, power-drunk petty officials like more than passing laws that make them appear more powerful and make their jobs more secure, while at the same time make everyone else’s lives more complicated, and unpleasant, increase the already insufferable red tape and corruption in the area, and offer more opportunities for the small-minded, small-town, power-drunk petty official to do “favors” for special people.

Like so many in the Ravena-Coeymans élite, Conrad talks out of both sides of his face

two-facedYes, Mr Larry Conrad, Coeymans Building Inspector, does come to us with a long history and a mighty load of dirty laundry in his baggage. The are some very unsavory legends about the connections between Larry Conrad and Bobo-cop Gerald “Jerry Dirty-Hands” Deluca, the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (Deluca claims to be a consultant with the DEC. Consulting on what?), and a tract of land on Route 9w, a certain family of lawyers in Ravena (did I say “Biscone“?  Oops!), and an alleged shady deal made to bamboozle an elderly couple out of their property for a song. Greed was the motivation, of course. And the lawyer (did I say “Biscone” again?  Oops!), made it all seem legal. But when the deal collapsed and the property was sold to a local family for a fair price, the retaliation began! And who was at the center of the “legal” harassment and retaliation? Why do you need to ask? Mr Larry Conrad.

Like so many in the Ravena-Coeymans élite, George Dardiani (violates the Code of Judicial Ethics), Ravena mayor John Bruno (plays loosey-goosey with public money), Cathy Deluca (runs a close second to her double-talking husband and has a teflon surface with her supporters), Michael Biscone, (is he village attorney or does he just bill the village? Whatever he is, he’s great at covering some apparent real conflicts of interest. We’ll FOIL his invoices for services and the payment vouchers from the village very soon!) and the list could go on and on,  Conrad talks out of both sides of his face, but as a made Coeymanazi, he’s loyal to the godfathers and to his protectors.

So you can really understand, given Conrad’s associations, history, cronies, and the mob he hangs out with, we take a very close look at statements like “the town … wants growth but needs growth that follows the laws created to help the whole community. He said he hopes that this business and others will benefit from clearer zoning maps and believes this may lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.”

Conrad apparently believes that more laws controlling what residents and neighbors do and “help the community,” and that more laws “will lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.” Which side of his mouth is this coming from, I ask?

Mr Conrad, the only way that misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and village/town officials can be lessened is not by creating more laws but by streamlining the administration. This may very well entail eliminating the village of Ravena and consolidating it with the hamlet of Coeymans under one single administration, an administration that will first of all put an end to the corruption and coercion that has hallmarked the Ravena-Coeymans system of oppression for decades! It will involve elimination of the money pit and den of thugs we popularly call the Coeymans Police Department and purging the crooks and dumbos calling themselves law enforcement! Replacing the Coeymans Police Department with a professionally trained corps of law enforcement like the Albany County Sheriff’s team would be the wisest move ever for this community.

Before you create new laws or bring in new systems, Mr Conrad, there’s a hell of a lot of healing that has to be done to “lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.” 

The Ravena-Coeymans community has been hemorrhaging small businesses while being poisoned by the large corporations and oppressed by the special-interests in and around Albany that are feeding and fostering the small-minded, small-town, power-drunk petty officials who all believe they have their positions for life and can hand them over to their designated heirs.  And the Conrad-Biscone-Deluca-Bruno-Persico cliques have all but silenced the democratic process in the town of Coeymans. Clean out village and town hall completely and maybe the fresher air in the town of Coeymans will attract business-health conscious entrepreneurs. To date all that the village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans have attracted are corpse flies feeding on the dead and dying local economy. What businesses are left standing after the Conrad Crew and the Coeymanazis have finished are disillutioned, angry, and suspicious of anything that comes out of the village and town halls!

Larry Conrad hasn’t a clue what he’s talking about! Before you create new laws or bring in new systems, Mr Conrad, there’s a hell of a lot of healing that has to be done to “lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.” The TRUST and CONFIDENCE in local government has to be re-established after decades of a local corrupt machine of self-interests and special interests have made this entire community into a community of paranoid recluses! Thank the  Brunos, the Biscones, the Delucas, the Warners, the Darlingtons, the Teresis, the Neris, the Rotellos, the Persicos, and Yes! the Conrads of the area, and their Coeymanazi minions.

Rather than Building Fences or Proselytizing that “Good Fences Make Good Neighbors” or that Laws Lessen Misunderstanding and Heal Strained Relationships, the News Herald and the Scouts Should be Proactively Tearing Down Fences and Building Community in spite of the Hypocrites, Whether Religious, Social, or Political Hypocrites!

The Moment of Truth is NOW!Make Positive Changes Now. Tweak Later.

The Moment of Truth is NOW!
Make Positive Changes Now. Tweak Later.

So back to page 1 of the Ravena News Herald. We can start by not asking God to do what we ourselves are very capable of doing ourselves if we simply follow the ethical principles taught by the Gospels and especially the Beatitudes (Sermon on the Mount). If you’ve forgotten what they are, find a Bible and read them again, if you ever have read them. The entire law condenses down to, “Love God totally and love your neighbor as you love yourself!”

Careful How You "Pray"!

Careful How You “Pray”!

Misusing prayer to make a political appeal to empty hearts is a sacrilege and involving God in that conspiracy is blasphemy! In the precincts of a Roman Catholic sacred space used for secular purposes, the prayer should either not have been done or the real experts in screwing up prayer should have been invited to invoke the petition to the divine: either the pastor of the Roman Catholic Church of St Patrick or the bishop’s minion, the deacon at St Patrick’s. At least the screwed up prayer would have been screwed up professionally. But to have such a “prayer” come from the lips of a representative of an organization that conspicuously and publicly discriminates and offends the dignity of members of the community is an affront to fair play and justice.

But certainly, the merit that can be taken from the so-called prayer is the enumeration of the darkness that the speaker finds in the community, society, and the world. But just publicly displaying awareness of those evils, evils that are right outside our doors, is not enough. Solutions are needed but no solutions are offered. That doesn’t work for me at all.

The newspapers at one time played an important educational role–they now churn out chum, crap!

The public media have lost all sense of dignity and continue to fail in their obligations to the people of our communities. Where the public media, the newspapers, played an important role of sharing good information while playing fair, and demanding quality in the information they send out to the public–yes, the newspapers at one time played an important educational role–they now churn out chum, crap! The conspicuous cover photo accompanying the article, “Scouts reaffirm their faith in God in annual service,” regrettably demonstrates this point. In the caption we read: “Weblos of Pack 1067 illustrate the deadline sin of gluttony in a skit at the Scouts Own Service on Sunday.” What is a “deadline sin”? Doesn’t the editor know gluttony (actually intemperance in moral theological terms)  is a “deadly sin“? Shame on you!

Poor editing, poor attention to detail, poor reporting: No news in New Baltimore. Church luncheon announced instead and in two places. Shame on you News Herald and New Baltimore!

But giving Rowzee the benefit of doubt, maybe he was doing both tongue-in-cheek.

And again, the glaring ignorance of Mr Bryan Rowzee and his pitiful misrepresentation of a renowned American poet laureate’s poem, Mending Wall, reveals the deplorable level of teaching the humanities, even important American literature. Rowzee’s gaffe reveals two things at least: the carelessness and indifference of the print media in terms of accuracy and reliability of facts, even well-established facts, and the failure of our education system in teaching our American literary heritage to such an abominable degree that an allegedly “qualified” journalist (a term used very loosely, indeed, in this discussion), one whose prose is made public as if it were credible, doesn’t have an inkling of understanding of what he’s writing about. If Mr Rowzee knew anything of what he was writing about he would have used the line from the Robert Frost poem correctly, and Rowzee would certainly have known better than to have printed the Conrad quote. But giving Rowzee the benefit of doubt, maybe he was doing both tongue-in-cheek. We can only guess!

Mad Dog Cop Loose!

Mad-Dog Coeymans Cop Ryan Johnson Has Been Spotted Prowling the Streets of Cow-eymans Looking for Fresh Blood, Flesh, YOU!

Rumors were that someone had Jimmy-Hoffa’ed Johnson and he was in a building foundation somewhere, or that the was receiving treatment at some psychiatric facility at an undisclosed location, or that he was in jail, playing bottom to Big Bubba. Actually, none of those rumors were true. But he’s back on the street fresh and ready to continue his routine of harrassment, intimidation, coercion, and retaliation on behalf of his Coeymanazi handlers, BoBo-Cop Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca, DumboCop Gregory Darlington, Sheister-in-chief Michael T. Biscone, Kerry “The Tool” Thompson, and the unnamed unholy minions in Coeymans.

So gather your children, lock up your daughters, send your sons away, and bury your dead! No one’s safe again, anymore!
