Threats of School Shooting at RCS High School!!!


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

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


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

What is RCS, Coeymans PD waiting for?

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


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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CONTACT! DEMAND ANSWERS!

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

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.

Our Readers Write that:

darlington

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!)

We regret any confusion …

We Have Received Some Comments That Indicate To Us That There Is Some Confusion Regarding The Operator Of The RC Teen Activity Center And A Very Popular Teacher At The RCS Middle School.

appreciation

While we have made it very clear that we are not bashing anyone and that we are simply asking important questions relating to the RC Teen Activity Center, some of our readers have risen to the occasion to defend their “Mr Fisher.” I was very curt and blunt with one commenter who seemed to have been confused and vigorously defended her “Mr Fisher.” I now understand her confusion and I’d like to conditionally apologize for the rough treatment s/he received at my hands.

To be clear: Mr Michael Fisher is the operator of the RC Teen Activity Center in Ravena. Mr William Fisher is a teacher at the RCS Middle School. On this blog we are discussing only the RC Teen Activity Center and Mr Michael Fisher not the RCS Middle School and Mr William Fisher.

dropped the ballMr William Fisher is a very popular and loved teacher at the RCS Middle School and we have that on very reliable authority: some of his students and several parents. So, Mr William Fisher we would like to congratulate you on a very special reputation you have obviously earned at the RCS Middle School. While there may have been some confusion in the names, what ultimately came out in all of this is your fine reputation! So we conditionally apologize to you for any anxiety we may have caused to you!

We do want to emphasize, too, that there is no reason whatsoever to believe that Mr Michael Fisher of the RC Teen Activity Center is not attempting to do good for the community. We support all that is good in this community. Our points made on this blog critique only a number of concerns and inconsistencies that we have noted in the leadership and organization of the RC Teen Activity Center. The leadership and organization is not the product of a single person but is the result of many interrelated factors and interactions of a number of people and agencies. We do not want to make the impression that we are singling out Mr Michael Fisher as an individual nor do we want to distract from his basic intentions.

As always, we want to continue our policy of truth and correctness and we intend always to publicize and own up to any misunderstandings we may inadvertently have caused. That policy is what makes us credible and reliable.

We thank you for your trust and confidence, and your loyalty!
