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.

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?

Our Zombification & Now Even God Comes in 29 Designer Flavors!

 We Are Being Dumbed Down and Turned into A Nation of Zombies.

The Zombies are Eating Our Tax Dollars!

The y’re Turning Us Into Zombies
And We’re Eating Each Other!

Technology, the Promoters of the Technology, the Lobbies and Unions Shoving Technology Down Our Throats, the Public Officials Who are Slaves to the Unions and Lobbies, and our Already Zombified Teachers and Administrators are Hell-bent to Zombify our Entire Culture!

Just Shoot Us! Why Doncha!?!

You’re Boring Us to Death!
Just Shoot Us! Why Doncha!?!

I was going to continue the reports on the RC Teen Activity Center and on the Unending Persecution of the RCS CSD BoE President by the Hypocrite Albany DA P.[udenda] David Soares, until I Experienced the Most Recent RCS school board public meeting on January 7, 2012. I simply had to comment on it!

The point is, however, that the specific RCS situation is not unique; in fact, it’s as common as…well, the metaphors I could offer may not be very pleasant so I’ll stop while I still have your attention. The problem is endemic, and I hope to convince you that it is as serious as I expect it is.

PowerPoint Masturbation. I reviewed the RCS Central School District board of education meeting of January 7th, and I was initially amazed that it was so…quiet. Fact is: It was barely attended by the public. Then came the reason: Another one of those idiotic digital slide show presentations where the presenter self-pleasures him or herself by vomiting onto a wall or screen a mass of numbers, charts and graphs that no one but the presenter understands. Only a death squad of mercenaries could kill the audience quicker! Is that the plan? Kill attendance by presenting idiotic garbage? Is that the purpose of the public sessions of the board of education meetings? Well, it does show one thing: If these presenters, who are teachers and administrators in the schools, are that self-absorbed and mentally zombified that they don’t give a damn how intensely boring they are and how disrespectful they are of their audience, what on earth are they doing in the classrooms? Is this an indicator of how they communicate information in the classroom, too? Then, of course, I started to think…

zombies ahead run

Education is all about communication. If teachers and administrators are not capable of communicating appropriately with their audience, what in hell are we spending all this money on paying teachers extreme salaries? If, from what we see and hear in these PowerPoint slide presentations by teachers and administrators is: What in hell are we spending all of the “professional development” money on for teachers? (Please don’t tell me, “It’s in their contract.”) The PowerPoint presentations are much too long, too many slides, too poorly designed, too poorly presented, not presented in a language the audience can fully understand, and present too much information for anyone of normal intelligence to digest! The time, effort, money would be better spent on a simple one-page executive summary, and an essential facts sheet followed with a Q/A session.

Dr Alan McCartney did an excellent job by jumping in and summarizing a very confused and muttered presentation point by clearly distilling the facts: “When she says [the increase in] online testing, the state has essentially told us that Within two years they expect that all state tests will be taken online at the same time by every student in the state.” Bingo. Stop the convoluted explanations and miscommunications, cross-referencing and pointing to other people. You’re supposed to be informing everyone!

But the fact remains: So much money being spent on technology, updates, new computers, etc. doesn’t do very much to improve socialization, reading, writing, development of self. Those are the problems that are being created by over-technologization of our schools and digitizing our learning environments. Out-of-control and excessive dependence on technology is a key factor in zombification.

(See our P.s. at the end of this article!)

Zombification of America. Imagine all of those futuristic low-budget films where masses of human beings are mindlessly gazing at Fearless Leader, who appears demonically proselytizing on a huge flat-screen. Imagine all of those low-budget walking-dead films depicting zombified undead human beings walking around aimlessly, mindlessly trying to find a brain to eat (apparently they’re brain-starved, the product of our education system). Imagine all of the newsreel, archival, and documentary images of the Nazi era, of Stalin’s Russia, of the China of the cultural revolution, and the propaganda machine that deprived whole populations of freedom of thought, speech, movement, and controlled every atom of information served to the public. Have you ever thought about how all of that was accomplished? Have you ever thought about the underlying message these films of protest, of warning they are sending?

Are these your kids>

Are these your kids

Isolation of Children. In all of the totalitarian regimes, the family unit was a prime target. First you isolate parents from children, and then you get all the children in one place and brainwash them. Sound familiar? Here, let me help you to understand. In the Nazi, Stalinist, China during the cultural revolution, the family was always made sacrosanct because the propagandists knew at the time that it was central and a core value to the population. But what they then proceded to do is to gradually dissolve the traditional family to form a new-age type of family. Breeders would produce perfect offspring, who would be herded into education camps, and who then would become a generation of perfect zombies, and the cycle would continue. Are you getting it now? Maybe not? Let’s move on, then.

This isolation of children, young people from parents and the traditional family unit then went on to isolate families and children from the ethics and morality sources, the spiritual and faith communities, the churches and congregations. Once the sensitivity to the value of spirituality, faith and religion was erased in the family and in the youth, new gods, idols, could be set up to fill the void created by killing God. Once ethics and morality was taken out of the hands of the faith and spiritual communities, the now ethically and moraly sterile parents and youth could be filled with a popular, government, corporate morality and ethics.

zombie girlNow those newly indoctrinated, brainwashed young adults become teachers. Without the traditional family to instill a sense of culture and identity, and without the faith communities to inspire ethics and morality, the education system, the schools and liberal colleges and universities now disseminate faddish, dumbed-down learning at economically hobbling prices. The basic thought here is: control the spirit and the mind through zombified education, the spirit through corporate ethics and morality, and vertical and horizontal movement by shackling the population with the propaganda that the ultimate goal is a college education even if you end up with a lifetime of debt and no job.

The control logic is ingenious. Don’t you think? No, you don’t think. That’s the fundamental problem!

Undead - The Zombie Teacher

Mr Undead
The Zombie Teacher

Here’s an example: The other day I was having a breakfast meeting with a contributor. The waitress, always ready to add her two cents, starts bitching about what her daughter is [not] learning in middle school. Seems she’s falling behind and the mother hasn’t a clue how to help her. “She just doesn’t get the math they’re teaching! It’s all dashes and dots and numbers. I just don’t get it. I don’t understand what it is!” ISOLATION OF THE PARENT FROM THE CHILD’S EDUCATION! The government sets up systems that eliminate parental participation in their childrens’ education (except to pay dearly for it). If the parent doesn’t get it and can’t help the child, the parent loses esteem in the child’s eyes (“Gee, mom, you’re a dumbass!”), the child feels helpless and vulnerable, has low self-esteem (“I’m stupid.”), the modern morality, ethics, and economics force the single mother to work long hours to support the child (“Gee, mom, you’re never around when I need you!”), the father’s probably a victim of the legal system and in jail for peeing in public or desperation drinking (think alcoholism in soviet Russia), and the child has a no-parent family unit (Our law enforcement dunces and idiot judges at work reinforcing the zombification process!).

eat more brainsEnter the A.S.A.P. programs and the Teen  Activity Centers of the world! Parents are already technically isolated from their children and the ethical and moral foundations have been eroded to such an extent that any sense of guilt is radically lessened, so now parents, in the squeeze by the financial environment and the corporate brainwashing that they MUST HAVE, MUST RUSH OUT and GET, MUST GIVE, now make the excuse that to make ends meet, they both, mother and father, must have jobs.

(No one seems to catch on that they’re being satanically manipulated by the corporations, the educators, the service providers. Nope! They’re zombies now, they don’t have to think. No brain left, you see! That’s why the movie zombies have to eat brains…they have to replace their own brain they sacrificed to the government, unions and corporations!). But now we have “After School Activities Programs” and Community Teen Centers, Youth Centers, etc. that gather the young people together, away from home, family, parents, and become the surrogate home, family, parents to the children. All they are are Nazi, Stalinist, revolutionary Chinese youth camps, and they have the same effect: Separate the children from the home, family, parents; gather them into one place; make them feel good and liked there; replace the home, family, parents with a new home, family, and new “parents.” Get it yet? Sure, you rationalize the whole thing and think you “need to work to make ends meet,” that “you need to give the kids the latest brain-dissolving handheld toys,” that you need “to rush out and buy that product,” that everyone in the family “needs their own vehicle” (so that they can rush out and leave the home, family, parents and get to the youth or teen center, indoctrination camp.). No guilt anymore! Everyone has his or her addiction. Everyone’s a zombie.

Nobody needs to care. Everyone needs an assault weapon (to finish off all the other zombies). Do your hear the evil Lord [In]Sidious sniggering in the confusion of your life, now?

FEAR IS ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL MOTIVATORS, CONTROLS, WEAPONS!

Zombification of Education. Well, I started out talking about PowerPoint masturbation and presenter self-pleasuring. I raised the question if what we are seeing, the total alienation of the audience by the presenter, total unawareness of the audience, is that what’s happening in the classrooms? I then provided you, dear readers, with a tour of what I see is going on right under unseeing eyes: the zombification of the people. Yes, we are so blind that we sheeple along to the drumbeat of the propagandists, our richly lobby-bribed elected officials, the corporations, and a federal government too big to care and money-making-bailout-sponges the propagandists tell us are too big to fail. But what we are really missing, so tragically missing is the true tragedy right here, in our own communities, right in your own home: the zombification of the family! We used to hear that “education starts in the home, formation in the churches, training in the schools.” Where has all that wisdom gone? We are becoming a nation of digitized, electronic junkies. We are becoming a society of ethically cleansed, amoral, brainless, starving zombies. Why? Because it’s so easy. That’s why.

But we like easy. But when you actually think about it it’s catastrophic! Take, for example, electronic communications. Before the birth of the transistor radio way back in the 1960’s, people sat home and listened to the radio together; with the transistor radio, the migration genes were facilitated, and you could listen on your own, while on the move! Then came the computer and e-mail and online searches. No more sitting down and writing a nice card or going to the library, seeing friends, socializing, browsing the stacks. Now you could sit in a dark cubicle or in a corner of your bedroom and get it all! But even then you still had to go out, face the world, shop, negotiate, pay bills.

No more, my little zombies! Just isolate yourself in your dark little corner and Bingo! It’s all done…digitally. Eating out in a restaurant or a diner used to be a social ritual. Forget about that, too! Just look around you: couples sitting at the same table, each one looking blankly down at their lap. It used to be that when you saw something like that you yelled: “Hands on the table!” No more, my little zombies! All the self-pleasuring now is done…digitally!

So the universities came up with another rain-making, revenue generating, cost-saving strategy: online degrees. No more physical interpersonal social learning experiences. Just sit in your dusty, smelly, infested corner and “earn a degree.” It’s that simple, simpletons!

Worse still, our educators and the boards of education are caving to an idiotic decree, now law, that mandates that our schools go digital! Now if this isn’t a conspiracy by the information technology lobbies, the computer and software lobbies, I must have come down with the last shower!

Freud, Piaget, Ainsworth, Watson, Bandura, Kohlberg and others all have theories of human development, of stages of human moral and character evelopment and all of them take into consideration the importance of human physical interaction.

One Instructor, One Lesson for All

One Instructor, One Lesson for All

Almost every mainstream magazine and journal has recently published articles on the importance of human contact in healthy human development and the consequences of “isolation.” The studies and research on which these articles are based is done by scholars and academics, scientists. Why is it all lost on our educators? The Answer: Unions and Lobbies! MONEY. And our federal and state education pundits are all in the union and lobby pockets! That’s why the New York State Education Department has told schools to start planning for the flatscreen teacher–all of education will be cleansed of the personal role model in the classroom, the adored teacher (what’s left of any real role models in the classroom). One standardized model will present one standardized presentation over fiberoptic delivery or satellite hookup. All zombies will get one standardized program of instruction. All little zombies will be uniform in their thinking. All parent zombies will be eliminated from the picture (until tax time comes). The entire world will be ZOMBIFIED!

Which Way Is God?!?

Which Way Is God?!?

Nowadays Even God Comes in 29 Different Flavors. Religion and faith, too, has been zombified by the media and by the courts. People are spiritually lost, impoverished. They know there’s something more than the new idols of cars, money, handhelds, digital friends. The human spirit feels drawn to something else! And the free market economy, atheist capitalism is right there to meet the need! My question is :  Why? if so many people are searching that someone doesn’t get the message that they’re not finding what they need. Just driving around the area we see more different churches than Heinz has soups! What is it that all these churches are attempting to answer but don’t seem to be doing? An interesting fact is that Episcopalians are defecting to Roman Catholicism; Roman Catholics, fundamentalists, Evangelicals, and others are flocking to the Eastern Orthodox Church! The reasons? Here are just a couple of the reasons given in the literature:

  • the reductionism, barreness, and minimalism in most faddish, modern faith communities
  • a search for a sense of mystery and majesty in worship
  • a search for a joyful and confident, credible celebration of the gospel liturgy
  • a commitment to the role of tradition as a supplement/complement to the Bible as a source for theology
  • an experience of a well-defined sense of identity in faith tradition rooted in a historical consciousness of the early church
  • a heritage of Christian perseverance tested by modern challenges, even persecutions.

The Powers had to Make God Politically Incorrect in our Schools and Public Institutions.

Why? Because a belief in God and freedom to speak about God could possibly remind us that we have the freedom,  the chutzpah (Hebrew: audacity) to Argue with God. In fact, this  would create a dangerous situation in which the citizen could challenge the Powers. Hell, if Abraham and Job could argue with God, why shouldn’t we challenge the Powers?

One possible explanation is that the general zombification we are witnessing is expressing itself in confusion and derailment relating to spirituality and the search for Ultimate Truth, a search for our own identity. The causes of the general zombification include those discussed above. The solutions don’t need to be discovered, they’re already under our noses, we need only to see and acknowledge them.

More Child Abuse: “Get out and push the bus!”

A Bus Breaks Down on the NYS Thruway on Thursday and Students are Told to “Get Out And Push The Bus”
You heard me right:
ON THE NYS THRUWAY!!!

[ UPDATE: Unofficial Information Received Today (Oct. 6, 2012) Reports that the Offending Busdriver Has Been Suspended. There is no news yet on the busdrivers involved in the abandonment of the other two students. We should expect that the two busdrivers involved in the abandonment will be suspended, and that Dawn Hunter, transportation dispatcher, be disciplined.
RCS Parents Should Demand Nothing Less!]

School Bus Rear-Ended
What if kids were pushing it?

All we can say is that busdriver made a very, very bad decision! When we put someone in charge of a vehicle and fill that vehicle up with school children, can’t we reasonably expect that that busdriver gets some screening, some training, is trained with some knowledge of emergency procedures? Well, obviously, this busdriver didn’t have the brains to know what to do and when. But to have students get out of the bus and push it off the NYS Thruway is really an extreme example of idiocy and abuse to the max!

Wouldn’t it have been smarter to get the kids to safety on the grass, out of harm’s way, put on the flashers, screw the traffic?!? Wouldn’t a normally functioning mind in such a position of responsibility prioritize what needed to be done? Let’s see: FIRST GET THE KIDS TO SAFETY! NEXT: Everything else…. But it didn’t happen that way. Why?

THIS is WHY!!!

How is it possible that not only were the kids not moved to a safe area they were actually told to get out of the bus and to push the bus! I’m at a loss for words!

One parent wants an explanation and writes to the Superintendent, Elizabeth R. Smith, Brian Bailey, principal of the high school, and the the RCS board of education:

My son [name redacted] was bused from BOCES this afternoon, when his bus broke down on the NYS Thruway he was asked to push the bus out of the road along with several other students before the police arrived. I feel as though this is a huge safety concern. Is this legal? What is being done about this? When I go to work I have to feel that RCS is protecting my son. I do not feel that right now.”

“A little over two weeks ago my son was left to walk home down Route 9W because of the confusion with the buses. When will this stop?”

[Name Withheld by Request]

What are the other parents doing about this, I wonder? Will the Coeymanazis have something to say when the board of education starts chopping heads? Where are all the loudmouths in the RCS central school district now or ever when it comes right down to disciplining school personnel who are pervs or perps or just plain stupid?

Parents!
If You Don’t Stand Up NOW and Shout,
You’re Just As NEGLIGENT!

We’ve reported in one single week the facts that a bus aide abuses a special needs child and nothing’s done about it. A child is left behind, refused bus transportation home because of an obscure policy that hadn’t even gone into effect yet. And another child who is left abandoned when he gets confused as to which bus to board, and ends up walking home on Route 9W!

THIS or WORSE

The challenge: O.K. Brian Bailey, Jennifer Houck , Elizabeth R. Smith, Whalen, Edward “Teddy” Reville, Howard “Bray” Engel, James Latter, Deluca (Cathy and Dirty-Hands Jerry), Traver, Donna Leput-Hommel (maybe you can shed a tear or two about this at the next BoE meeting?), Josephinie O’Connor (forget about your weight, maybe your father can visit the busdriver and make a false claim), R.J. D’Esposito, Misuraca, Tom Dolan, Gary Vanderzee, and the rest of you loudmouths, “It’s for the kids!” chanters, anything to say? What now, loudmouths? Maybe you can discuss the real problems on your FaceBook garbage dumps?

What are we paying these idiots for?
To kill our kids?

Isn’t it time you parents stepped up to the plate and stopped gold plating turds and admit that someone in the school system, a principal, a superintendent, a director of transportation, a busdriver SOMEONE has to be held accountable.

Isn’t it time you parents and taxpayers came to your senses and realize that it’s the Coeymanazi’s lie that makes you believe that the Board of Education has any power to discipline without an outcry from the public! YOU have to start doing something before YOUR reps on the BoE can do anything.

Isn’t it time that you learn the difference between TRUTH and lies! As long as you get your information from FaceBook sites like RCS Friends and More or the Cathy’s Coeymanazi Clucks Club, or from the tabloid rags you read, you’re DOOMED to continue to be their stoogies! Wake up, people!

 Or are you waiting to be called by the police to come and identify a body? Your choice, parents!

Drugs Kill? So Does Stupidity!

Retaliation is a Crime: Part II

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

If you haven’t read Part I, Please go to Part I.

Retaliation Is A Crime! You Need to Run the Criminals Out of the Community! Only Then Will You Be Able To Walk the Streets, Drive Your Car, Speak Your Mind, Send Your Children to School with Peace of Mind! Get Rid of Retaliation in Coeymans and Live Your Lives In Peace! Learn What Retaliation Is and Complain!

Fight Back…NOW!

When you think “retaliation” you must think of it in terms of how the law defines it. If you don’t use that standard definition, anyone you speak to or complain to won’t know whether you are talking about what the law protects you against. That’s the way it works. If you use the right terms and understand what they mean, you gain credibility; if you don’t, well, the criminals will rule.

So, when you talk or write about, or when you file a claim against a public official or department about retaliation, here is a good definition to work by:

 A definition: Retaliation is defined and prohibited by a number of laws and is illegal, it is a crime. We are provinding a good working best definitions of retaliations as itis expressed in most lawas against retaliation and coercion:

(a) No private or public entity shall discriminate against any individual because that individual has opposed any act or practice made unlawful by the Constitution of the United States, state or federal law, local law or custom , or because that individual made a charge, testified, assisted, or participated in any manner in an investigation, proceeding, or hearing under the United States Constitution or any of its Amendments, the Bill of Rights, state or federal law, local law or custom or any part thereof.

(b) No private or public entity shall coerce, intimidate, threaten, or interfere with any individual in the exercise or enjoyment of, or on account of his or her having exercised or enjoyed, or on account of his or her having aided or encouraged any other individual in the exercise or enjoyment of, any right granted or protected by the the  United States Constitution or any of its Amendments, the Bill of Rights,, state or federal law, local law or custom.

(c) Illustrations of conduct prohibited by the laws against retaliation or coersion include, but are not limited to:

(1) Coercing an individual to deny or limit the benefits, services, or advantages to which he or she is entitled as a resident or citizen;
(2) Threatening, intimidating, or interfering with an individual who is seeking to obtain or use the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, or accommodations of a public accommodation;
(3) Intimidating or threatening any person because that person is assisting or encouraging an individual or group entitled to claim the rights granted or protected by the the  United States Constitution or any of its Amendments, the Bill of Rights, federal or local laws, custom to exercise those rights; or
(4) Retaliating against any person because that person has participated in any investigation or action to enforce civil or constitutional, natural  or human rights.

The dictionary definition of retaliation is misleading: “retaliation, n. -Syn. vengeance, reprisal, punishment; see revenge,” and that’s why it’s so important for you to use the legal definitions of retaliation and to provide details and facts that show that the misconduct is a violation of the legal definition of retaliation or coercion.

Retaliation happens against students by teachers, against parents through their children, government through police or other agencies against citizens, landlords against tenants, employers against employee. Because people live in fear of retaliation and ignorance of the law protecting them, no one really knows how widespread retaliation and coercion is in communities, or how often it occurs; but the people experiencing it know it exists and how it affects them. You, reader, may be one of them so pay attention. You don’t have to put up with it anymore!

 Yet, wherever parents or citizens gather and whenever they talk among themselves, the topic of retaliation receives lively attention.

Anyone who advocates for children  or for justice and fairness in the community or for freedom of speech or freedom of association as guaranteed under the United States Constitution can become the target of retaliation. (Individuals across the country are winning million-dollar lawsuits against schools, teachers, government, police for illegal retaliation and coercion.)

Retaliation or coercion is the act of using official power or authority or resources to illegally “punish” residents. The causes of retaliation are no mystery and there are two key ingredients: power and accountability – too much power and not enough accountabilty.

The mechanism that seems to trigger retaliation is effective advocacy. Retaliation occurs in an environment where officials view any opinions differing from their own or any questioning of their power as an unwanted imposition or as a way to develop an alternative power base or community action. When school officials or public servants translate their responsibilities and duties to citizens, residents, children and families into unquestioned, absolute decision making power over them. The profile of such officials can take two forms: openly hostile or smoothly deceptive, the latter preferring passive aggressive resistance.

Hostile officials on the other hand use their position as an instrument of power to openly intimidate and even punish citizens, students, parents, even groups. (Without what is called due process, this is a violation of the provisions of the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights!)

Most people never encounter retaliation because they are “sheeple,” people who unquestioningly and stupidly accept anything they get fed. Those who do experience retaliation and coercion however, are usually strong advocates for citizens’ rights, the betterment of the community (advocates for cleaning up politics, change), special disadvantaged or marginalized people without power such as the poor, the elderly, children. Regardless, retaliation does occur and the fear of retaliation inhibits many citizens. This gives school and government officials and the police wide latitude to become dictators, tyrants, to do what they damned well please.

Patterns of retaliation can be classified into three levels. Level I, the most frequent, is low-level passive activity, with the goal of delaying the process. Level II is more overt; the goal is to scare parents. Level III is the form of open hostility and the goal is to punish you. Level III retaliation is rare, but costly, dramatic, and damaging. After you read the descriptions below, you’ll probably have no doubts that you have been the victim of retaliation and coercion!

Level I – Delay. The goal at this level of retaliation is to reduce your effectiveness as citizens, residents, or as parents effectiveness by passive resistance, such as the introduction of delays and obstacles in the many processes involved in responding to problems or to complaints. There are numerous ways officials can achieve this result. One is simply playing dumb. This allows officials to effectively ignore the law and your rights under the law. Another is “forgetting” to do things. An official may repeatedly forget to follow-up on a commitment, such as getting back to parents with further information, or fail to schedule further meetings without several reminders. Being “away from the phone,” so often that parents give up on some important issue is also effective. Yet another technique is overly technical interpretations of laws and regulations. Level I does not appear hostile, but it can be extremely effective.

 Level II – Fear. Level II retaliation is not hidden. At this stage officials may appear to be openly frustrated and hostile. They will state that they won’t for example, allow you to have records or observe a process, or a class, or won’t permit certain kinds of activities. The list of “can’t do’s” is quite long. Most of it however, is bluff.

Level II retaliation is based on putting up a tough front in an effort to scare citizens or parents and reduce their advocacy. It is is all based on their expectation that you are ignorant of your rights and of the law. While it can be very effective, you can break through this barrier by learning more about the laws and regulations and simply insisting on compliance. Once past the obstacles, you will usually find that resistance is eliminated, because you will probably know more than they do (this is especially true when faced with ignorant village and town justices!).

Level III – Punishment. At this level, retaliation can get ugly, with officials or police openly threatening and actively trying to punish you. In this war-like situation, officials and police have a variety of weapons to choose from. One is the fair hearing (due process hearing) process. Government, and schools, too, (because YOU give them the money by accepting their budget!) have vast financial resources to transform hearings into major trial-like proceedings. Since there is no accountability to taxpayers for the large sums spent in such legal adventures, officials have free rein to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars (HamiltonCounty TN v. Zachary Deal is a case, where the school district spent at least 2.8 million dollars on attorneys’ fees to fight parents of a child with autism), and you have no say in it! You gave them a budget!

Aiding and abetting this practice is a network of attorneys who specialize in fighting citizens and parents. These attorneys are organized into a professional group which holds national conferences and training programs at the local level. School and government officials are invited to attend these conferences where they are tutored in the finer points of “aggressive action,” in the form of strategies to be used before a due process meeting or at the pre-hearing conference of a due process or fair hearing. There have been recent reports of a menacing new form of retaliation involving the fabrication of child abuse charges against the target parent. Such allegations can trigger an investigation by Child Protective Services which has police-like powers. Pending the outcome of their investigation, they may choose to remove children from the home. Level III is so serious that most people need an attorney to protect themselves.

Therefore, it’s extremely important to nip retaliation and coercion in the bud; to tell government, police, and schools they have their power and authority because YOU allow it…YOU give it to them and YOU can take it back.

But as you can see in the patterns of retaliation and coercion, the longer you let it go, the more difficult it is to get rid of. It’s like any disease: you neglect it and it’s going to kill you!

 Only YOU can put a stop to retaliation in the community. The Coeymans Police Department, certain members of the RCS CSD Board of Education, certain members of the RCS teachers association, and the village idiots that they recruit to do their dirty work are all agents of retaliation and coercion. Those people are interested in hanging on to their criminal power and will retaliate and coerce to keep that power. You know who they are and it’s time you stand up, speak up, and fight back. We’re providing you with the information and the tools to do just that! Fight Back! Take back your freedoms, your peace of mind, your lives!

Stop Being Pushed Around!

Here are some useful links:

And Remember….

A strong community represents the residents in the trenches and not the interests of the people in power”.

An administration that allows its members to be disrespected, is an administration that no longer deserves the respect of its residents.

When our educational leaders ignore input from the community, the programs they push are destined to fail.

Trailer Trash In A Double-Wide

Somehow It Seems Appropriate That the Coeymans Town Administration and Police Department Should be Housed in What Appears to Be A Converted Cargo Container or An Oversized Double-Wide Trailer

Town Of Coeymans
Town Hall

It’s also not surprising that search as I may, I just can’t find a photo or an image of the Coeymans Town Trailer? Can it be that it’s such a gem of the Hudson Valley, such an Objet d’Art that they need to keep it a secret?

Or is it, more accurately, because it’s such a den of corruption and iniquity that only those poor bastards unfortunate enough to have to appear there and be humiliated by the ignorant but arrogant town justices, an ex-cop and a former cafeteria manager, or abused by the hirelings of Coeyman’s police department chief Gregory Darlington and his troupe of  sadist pervert investigators and Albany PD rejects (McKenna and Johnson, included). I’d go for this latter option.

Moreover, it’s really unfair to even use the term “trailer trash” when discussing the town hall thugs. Trash they are but it’s doing a terrible injustice to those poor persons whom the elite disparagingly call “trailer trash.” There’s plenty of so-call “trailer trash” who would put the community élite to abject shame in terms of morality, virtues, values, and ethics. So, understand that I am using the term “trailer trash” in it’s most literal form, not in the manner that the hypocrites might use it to disparage persons less fortunate than themselves.

Now That I Have Your Undivided Attention…

That may at first blush sound pretty uncharitable and it probably is if you don’t think about it. But that’s the problem: You simply don’t THINK about things; more accurately, you don’t REFLECT on things, and you really ought to.

It’s only natural… that when someone comes and stirs up the scum in your pool you’re going to get pissed because the scum is stirred up, not because you were negligent and didn’t do what was necessary, the work, to keep it clean. Same thing for your community.

It’s only natural…that when you find that someone is pointing out your fat ass, and mentioning that it means trouble for your overall health that you become indignant at being called “fat,” and curse the person for the insult. But you know you’re fat and you know you eat unhealthfully and you know you don’t exercise enough but still, he called you “fat.” Same thing for your community, you know what’s wrong but you decide to live with it, deny it, work around it, and then you’re pissed because someone tells you something’s wrong and that you can fix it…if you care to.

It’s only natural… that you should all rise up and complain: “All teachers aren’t greedy!” Or “All teachers aren’t bullies, there are some very good ones.” You cry this out but you don’t also take into consideration that teachers, police, doctors, judges, men and women elected to public office are all in a special position in society; they want special respect but in return society holds them to a higher standard. Either they tow the mark or they go.

You want to wear crown? Well…

These privileged statuses also want to do their own dirty laundry, take care of their own. And so, when it becomes public that there are bad apples in the barrel, it becomes the task of the good apples to clean up the bad ones…or they can be included in the bad bushel, too. You want to wear the crown and wield the authority, enjoy the perks, do the dirty work guys and gals; clean up your litter boxes.

Find’em and Fix’em

It’s only natural….that because it was YOU who elected them to their privileged statuses that you will get pissed and want to kill the messenger when it becomes obvious that you or those to whom you have delegated your decision-making authority have put jerks in those power positions. But rather than kill the messenger, why don’t you bite the bullet and lay down the rules for the perps and pervs; you put them where they are and you can kick them out. Why do you let yourselves be silenced by those at the head table? Remind them that they are public servants, not tyrants!

Caught cookie-handed!

So you’ve been caught with your hand in the cookie jar?  It’s really humiliating for the crook to be found out and actually be called a crook. And it’s those types that get the angriest and the most vindictive when found out. Rather than ask forgiveness, seek reconciliation and change their ways (turn around), they retaliate. Same thing in the community: You call the crook a crook and he lashes out at everyone within reach. Low self-esteem is a very volatile condition and that’s what makes bullies, student bullies, street bullies, teacher bullies, cop bullies. But if the community were to have done its duty and if the community were to be a moral example and conduct its business ethically, Guess what!? Most of these uncomfortable situations could and would have been avoided.

Morality is a question of character; ethics is a question of what you do. If you are a liar or a cheat, that is immoral, it is a question of character: your character is who you are. Character doesn’t happen overnight, my friends, it starts as behavior that becomes habit that becomes character, the person. It is your character that governs what you do, when you do it, and why you do it. So, if your character that of a liar or a cheat, your ethics is that of lying and cheating. Your character is you; your ‘you’ doesn’t change unless you truly do something about it.

We can only hope that more Laszlo Polyaks, more Donna Pasquinis, more Ann Marie Vadneys, more Jerry Bogardis, more Pam Powells come forward and speak out like those citizen residents do on a consistent basis. Only then will this community be able to rid itself of the tyrany of the Jerry Delucas, the Gregory Darlingtons, the Donna Hommels, the McTigues, the Matt Millers, the Bartletts, the James Latters, the Josephine O’Connors. Only when the community spirited among you become the role models can you take back control of your lives, property, children; the fearful and anxious majority in this community must shake off the fear and anxiety and return to controlling your lives and your destinies.

Please don’t misunderstand what I am teaching here. I’m not calling for lynch mobs, for banning, exiling, or ostracizing anyone but what I am preaching is that some really tough love might be in order for you to forgive, not forget, and to reconcile or not to reconcile with those individuals who have blackened and darkened this community and kept you silent all these years. It’s time to call out the bullies and to discipline them; its time for fair play, justice and fairness. It’s time to put them outside the community and allow them back into the community only after their moral and ethical lesions have been cleansed and are no longer a threat of infection to the rest of us.

It’s time to teach–not just talk about–the lost values of honesty, integrity, charity, simplicity, respect, humility, and generosity, teach those values to the children you all claim to love and cherish; why then do you expose them to indoctrination, propaganda, and indecent role models? They’re your flesh and blood; you have to fill them with morality, good ethics, and love. Smiles covering fear and anxiety just won’t work; nor will convincing them that sacrifice is a bad thing. Teach them good judgment not simply judgment.

Do A Family Virtue Pick!

Listening and watching the videos of public meetings you hear trembling voices, high-pitched tension, you see downcast eyes, suspicious, defensive  body language. People these are not the signs of a happy hobbit community; these are signs you’d expect to see in a concentration camp! Look at yourselves!

When self-interest and self-preservation lock horns and complacency becomes the only coping strategy, there’s no compelling religious, spiritual, civic alternative–community evaporates and each one of you becomes an island with only the delusion of freedom in community.

We are going to give the RCS Central School District a bit of  a respite for the time being; we are going to give the community the opportunity to step up to the plate and to help itself, to file their complaints with the New York State Education Department, the Office of the Attorney General, and other authorities,  and give those authorities some time to show their colors and to do their jobs,  investigate, audit, discipline. There are fish to fry in the town hall and in the police department; we’ll busy ourselves with them in the next several weeks. Stay tuned!

James Latter: Why Is He Still On the Board of Education?

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

In March ’12, A Gang of Coeymanazis Ganged Up on A Sitting Board of Education Member and Demanded His Resignation Because He Was Contesting His Tax Assessments and Because of His Political Leanings. He Was Libeled in the Times Useless, Too!

But nearer and dearer to all hearts, closer to home, we have Mr James Latter and citizen’s demand for his resignation and investigations into his involvement with the shadowy RCS Athletic Association.
Why haven’t they started the investigation?
Why hasn’t Latter resigned?!?!
Why’s Latter still on the RCS Board of Education?!?!

Residents Speak Out!

Citizens Demanded An Investigation.
Where is it?

How Quickly We Forget…Yet in November 2011, a Parent Stood Before the Board and Recited How James Latter, a Sitting RCS CSD Boardmember Had Flagrantly Violated Confidentiality by Distributing a Confidential Communication, Endangering the Parent’s Children. She also reported how James Latter verbally abused a special ed student in front of other students. Her Outrage Was Shared By Several Other Residents who Also Addressed the Board and the Superintendant, Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith, Demanding an Investigation and Latter’s Resignation. No Investigation. Latter’s Still There!

That’s not all! In that same November 1, 2012  RCS CSD Board of Education meeting, other residents took the podium to ask why the RCS Athletic Association could not substantiate its status as a non-profit organization, why the RCS Athletic Association has not filed the required IRS 990 Form disclosures, why the RCS Athletic  Association has been the subject of allegations of misuse of Association funds by Latter to support partisan political activities! Latter is the RCS Athletic Association treasurer and stepson of RCS Sportsman’s Association president, Jeff Stambaugh! Oh those connections! His wife is a teacher and so he’s also part of the notorious teacher’s clique on th RCS board of education!

It’s On the Public Record!

At the November 1, RCS CSD Board of Education meeting, Pam Powell (an RCS parent) states, while qualifying herself as not being related to any board member or any  individuals associated with any organization involved here:

“I am here to make the public aware of some recent activity regarding board member, Mr James Latter…I drafted an e-mail to the board members and to Ms Smith ONLY, and Within 29 minutes of sending the e-mail, I received an e-mail from Bob Doren, subsequently followed by an e-mail from Ron Reese, then from coach Ron Vanderzee…Mr Latter took it upon himself to forward my personal confidential e-mail to all coaches JV and Varsity football as well as to Mr Reese and Mr Bailey. Mr Latter added a title of “FYI.” Mr Latter broke the very same protocol he has consistently preached that others need to follow, and has quickly called for investigations of others he has accused of doing the same. Protocoll and Board of Education rules need to be followed. Mr Later, maybe you should start to practice what you preach!

The speaker continues:

“Because of your breach of protocol last Friday I received a text message from my son at 11:26 a.m. asking me, “What did you do now!” This was exactly 2 hours and 11 miniutes after I sent my first e-mail. How my child…became aware of that situation lies directly in your hands…Mr Latter, FYI is not a “concerned title” My conclusion: Hidden agenda? I asked Mr Latter to resign. He refused…Mr Latter said he had asked others about my children…My husband and I would like to know, Mr Latter, what gives you the right to ask questions about our children? You’re not their teacher, principal, coach or any other person in their school who would have anything to do with their education or sports.”

At a the last board of education meeting,

“It was stated that a certain board member told a special ed child to stop acting like a f—ing retard. I am here to state that that member is Mr Latter! My child is a witness to this event. I wonder if you’re going to deny it now. Will you, call my well-rounded and very respectful child a liar? As I should have asked last year, when it happened, I will not ask now but demand that you resign! As a board member you are to act as a whole and have no inherent powers this doesn’t change when certain organizations are involved [Editor’s Note: Latter is an officer, whether secretary or treasurer, it’s unclear, of the RCS Athletics Association, which should also be investigated! See below.] Again: Practice what you preach!

“In closing, I believe that an investigation should be in order here. The fact is Mr Latter forwarded a confidential e-mail which placed myself and my children at risk of being harassed and treated differently, not to mention speaking to a child on school property in such a manner and in front of other children, one of them being my own child. For the sake of the children and the parents, Mr Latter, one way or the other, you need not to be a board member any longer. I now implore the board to demand he resign.”

James Latter’s Policy

James Latter is still on the RCS CSD board of education. No investigation was done despite these serious concerns. Why is that? Another instance of the teachers’ special interests (latter’s wife is an RCS teacher!) being cultivated on the board. Demand an investigation and boot Latter off the Board; He’s corrupt!

Another speaker, Mr John Allen, took to the podium like a fish to water, very eloquently and very articulately:

“What disturbs me as a citizen and I’d like to know is when an individual contacts the board or the school…, that information should be held in confidence and investigated through appropriate channels; not communicated with the various people that are involved in the sporting events or the other activities until the board itself or the school administration has had an opportunity to investigate and to appropriately respond. I’m more concerned after learning that Mr Latter is associated with members of the auxiliary that supports the various sporting events when that auxiliary has used its not-for-profit funding to actually fund “public education campaigns” and I’m being generous here, during times of election which, as I understand is, under IRS not-for-profit law, is expressly prohibited for a not-for-profit charitable organization to actually use its not-for-profit funding to fund such activities in an election campaign. And to take out a full-page add and other things against certain board members or even supporting other members is contrary to public policy in terms of not-for-profit status. The fact that you’re directly associated, I undertand, relatives are involved in that [Editor’s Note: Latter’s stepfather, Mr Jeff Stambaugh is president of the RCS Sportsman Association.]

Mr Allen continues,

“As I’ve looked at the not-for-profit status I can’t find any registration with the Attorney General’s office, which is required for not-for-profit status for that organization, I can also find no 990s, the tax filings for the last couple of years for that organization which are also required by not-for-profit charter. So I would ask that the board investigate this sports organization. Let’s look and ensure that it’s operating legally, that it’s filled its appropriate 990 returns; those are publicly available online and if they’re not it means that they haven’t been recently filed, and that we look at information specifically about the use of those funds as related to school operations and particularly on board election election returns. I think that’s very disturbing. And so, in light of this new revelation where you’re sharing confidential emails, I think that members of the public have a right to expect that communications to the board are held in confidence until the board as a whole decides to act on them or until the administration takes appropriate action…but certainly children should not be put in jeopardy because of personal or other agendas. And so, like others here,  Mr Latter, I would call for your resignation. I find this totally inappropriate and highly questionable, given the other activities that I’ve outlined.”

It seeems the only confidentiality James Latter respects is the secrecy of the RCS Athletic Association’s finances!

Still no investigation of Latter or of the RCS Athletics Association and its secret operations and finances. When can we expect this investigation, Ms Superintendent Elizabeth Smith, RCS CSD Board of Education. James Latter & Co., so quick to demand resignations of others but when it comes to a teacher-connection, sweep it under the carpet, right? NO! We demand an investigation. NOW!

Ms Donna Pasquini, who we all know shoots straight from the hip with deadly accuracy:

 “I have nothing against the Sports Association..both of my children played sports and I enjoyed it. Honesty, integrity…whatever you want to put forward as standards for the board also includes all these clubs and all the extra activity that goes on in school, and honesty goes a long way. Let’s be honest, let’t tell the whole truth. that if there’s something wrong within, there’s something wrong within. Let’s fix it! And I’m hoping that this board will understand that any protocol that stands for you as board members stands for every one of you…for every organization in the school, every teacher, every principal in the school. Nobody is above the law!

We Agree, Mr Latter, Come Clean; What’s with the Finances and Your Involvement?

At that same meeting, Mary Partidge-Brown says: “This meeting has been kind of a rollercoaster…like so many of these meetings…rehashing the old business and the old frustrations coming up…and trying to get back to the business of education.”

Well, RCS CSD Board of Education, Ms Superintendent Elizabeth Smith: It’s now May 2012, a new school budget has been passed, but old business is still plaguing the RCS community. Where’s the investigation!!!!

Mr George Babcock, another voice of the community:

 “…Mr Latter, maybe now you won’t be so quick to ask for someone’s resignation without a full communication with all your boardmembers, as you ask for of fellow boardmembers. The Sports Association has no reason not to come forward and reveal their finances, if they are aboveboard…And Mr Vanderzee*, Shame on you! If something is unsafe, I shouldn’t be turned on because kids won’t have french fries, YOU! as a coach should know What if? [Editor’s Note: Mr Babcock is referring to the unsafe electrical conditions and fryolator operated in the  (see article:  Fryer-gate heats up: Latter, Traver call for investigation (Daily Mail, October 13, 2011) , and
Sports concession stand closed, igniting controversy (News Herald, September 29,2011) )

*Ed. Note: DumbAss Vanderzee previously took to podium to state that he saw nothing “Political” in the RCS Athletic Association’s flyers and ads reading “Support Your School Budget.” Get these illiterate senile DumbAsses out of the schools! Pleeeeeezzzzz!!!!

 DYes, Mr Babcock, you’re right. If the RCS Sports Association and with James Latter as their treasurer, can produce the defense that at least three residents demanded back in November, they’ll be “aboveboard.” But that’s unlikely.

AND THE TAKEAWAY MESSAGE IS…

But guess what? They can’t play fair because they’re just as corrupt as just about every other organization in Coeymans from the Coeymans Police Department right down to the RCS Athletics Association.

To answer Ms Partridge Brown’s question: the old business and frustrations keep appearing because they are never resolved!

And guess what, the word is: O’Connor (outgoing member), Traver (outgoing member), and others in the teachers association clique are now secretly trying to oust a sitting BoE memberthe teachers on the board lost their majority in the last election and the only way they can keep their majority is to try to get another member removed. Those rats never give it a rest!

Demand this investigation but first get Latter off the Board of Education! He’s a hypocrite and it looks like he’s involved in illegal operations in the RCS Athletic Association!

The next RCS CSD Board of Education Meeting is on May 22nd; Go there, demand James Latter’s resignation! Demand an investigation into the finances and operation of the RCS Athletic Association! Get corruption out of the schools!

The entire November 1, 2011 Board of Education meeting can be viewed at Nov 1/11 BoE. The Latter accusations were also covered in the local press. In the News Herald article (see  After accusing BOE president of protocol breach, Latter accused of the same (News Herald, November 10, 2011)) it seems many Board of Education members called for fact-finding, an investigation, but it seems the ball was dropped again! Of course those close to Latter were of the opinion that the board should get on with business as usual. That’s the problem, isn’t it?  Business as usual! That’s been the problem for decades in the RCS community!

At the next RCS Board of Education  Meeting on May 22nd STAND UP and:

CONTACT! RCS CSD Superintendant Elizabeth Smith at:

RCS CSD District Office
15 Mountain Rd.
Ravena, NY 12143
Phone: 518.756.5200
e-mail: ersmith@rcscsd.org

And the entire RCS CSD Board of Education at
e-mail: BoardMembers@rcscsd.org

and demand an investigation and a public report by the Board of Education and the Superintendant.

Josephine O’Connor: A Role Model of Maturity and Mental Stability…NOT!

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

This Post Published By So-called School “Teacher” Josephine O’Connor Is A Testimony To The Addled And Confused State Of Some Of The RCS CSD Teachers To Whom School Children Are Exposed On A Daily Basis.

THIS is FAT, Josephine! So Shut Up, Already!

This so-called “teacher’s” idea of a “teachable moment” is protesting her lack of self-esteem, her “weight problem” and “yelling the insult up and down” a “hot hallway full of people waiting for election results.” This is a real RCS role model at work!

If this is representative of the mental coherence and level of self-esteem of even one teacher in the cohort at RCS it is pitiful This post is being published only because Ms O’Connor actually invited it’s publication! [Editor’s Note: We avoided fixing any of the grammar or editing any of the content so that the reader can appreciate the contradictions, the confusion, the perverse irrationality of the post. We’d also ask you to note below those who are responding and to compare the names on the list of Pieter B. Coeymanazis on the PTO who feel that bullying children and local businesses are also “teaching moments.”]

Before you read O’Connor’s post and our comments, we would like to inform you that we have received information that Ms O’Connor is not entirely truthful in her posting; she is not a teacher in the RCS CSD or anywhere else (In her posting she states “Since I am a teacher…Where do you teach, Josephine?!?!)! In fact, she is not a teacher but the RCS BoE board member who arrived late (“Not in attendance at the start of the meeting… O’Connor, it turned out, would later make the meeting and turn the tide on a crucial vote….Just before nine p.m., board member Josephine O’Connor arrived and apologized for not being in attendance for the bulk of the meeting due to other obligations and asked that the board go into executive session so she could be brought up to speed on what had occurred.” See this link Daily Mail, April 26, 2012. O’Connor had the unenviable reputation for being absent or late for BoE meetings.) with some display to break the tie vote on the most recent exhorbitant RCS CSD 2012-13 school budget; furthermore, Ms O’Connor, as a sitting board member voted to give her husband, a teacher in the RCS district, tenure–an act that is somewhat questionable, ethically speaking, since her vote to give her husband tenure was tainted by personal gain and vested, conflicted  interest; ethically, she should have abstained from that vote O’Connor didn’t run in May 2012; apparently she was satisfied with the damage she had already done, and she got her husband tenure so why stay?

Now let’s move on to Ms O’Connor’s posting…we comment in green:

“I am so proud of everyone that worked so hard on the budget. You made a huge difference in people’s lives. [Editor’s Note: Yeah! Can’t wait to see the difference it makes!]

“On another note…

“I want to talk about what was said to me tonight while waiting for the results. A fellow board member asked me why I hadn’t called him back on the telephone. Frankly, after being verbally abused and berated at a board meeting, I don’t feel comfortable calling him. I only want to talk to him with others present because of how I have been treated in the past month. [Editor’s Note: Do you have the date of that BoE meeting? We’d like to review it in order to confirm your statements. You’ve lied already once in this posting.]

“So I replied that I wouldn’t be calling him, that emailing would suffice. [Editor’s Note: Now that’s mature; and real leadership behavior. It’s called avoidance and is a type of denial behavior; very common in the RCS district. Probably why nothing constructive gets done.]
He looked at me and said “it looks like you’ve put on some weight” and turned away.  [Editor’s Note: Any witnesses to the actual statement? That would lend some credibility to this report.] Now, if you think I’m posting this because the specific insult bothered me, you’d be wrong. [Editor’s Note: Really? Well that’s not what we get from the rest of your rant below.] Instead of being reduced to tears or standing shamefully [Editor’s Note: We hope you don’t teach English!]  in the corner, which is what I gather he expected me to do, I did something that I have never done before. [Editor’s Note: As an adult, we would hope not but you do something even more childish, immature, and absolutely SILLY!]

“In that hot hallway full of people waiting for election results, I raised my voice and said “hey everyone: Member of the Board X just said I look like I put on weight, anyone else want to chime in?” I yelled the insult up and down the hallway. I invited anyone who wanted to agree with his judgement of me to jump right in. Simply calling the insult on the carpet gave me a sense of liberation that was amazing. I did it because what was said to me shows what a kind of person that HE is, not me. [Editor’s Note: No, Ms O’Connor, you just made a DumbAss out of yourself, an histrionic spectacle, which is why this post was sent to us: You made yourself laughable with your clownlike display!]

“Since I’m a teacher, I just had to write this; it’s a teachable moment. [Editor’s Note: OMIGOD! She claims to be  an RCS teacher doing this! Am I really surprised? And this is what RCS calls a “teachable moment.” Puhleez! More like a lunatic moment!]

“To even think that I would be embarrassed by being called fat in 2012 is the joke here. [Editor’s Note: But you obviously did, on fair assessment of what you’re writing in this post!] I thought: “that’s all ya got?” My weight? I would laugh if it weren’t such a tragic commentary on the nature of misogyny, which is alive and well I might add. [Editor’s Note: But what about your own self-esteem problem? Even if there were “mysogyny,” wouldn’t a competent, mature adult, a teacher no less, come up with a better public statement than “yell[ing] the insult up and down the hallway”? Most of us would agree that there are more adult ways of expressing one’s self.]

“That’s right, a fellow board member couldn’t think of anything intelligent to say so he insulted my physical appearance. That’s all he had to try and hurt me with. [Editor’s Note: We don’t know you but are you overweight? Is that your own body image? It seems you have an unhealthy fixation on your physical appearance as representing your self or your essence to the detriment of any other qualities. is that so? Sounds like a really big problem, Josephine. How will you manage in a high school with all those slim divas around you?]

“To all of the little girls, young women, middle-aged women, old women who have been verbally pummeled and made to feel less-than for any reason: try yelling the insults from the rooftops. [Editor’s Note: No. Please don’t try that. It’s likely to get you arrested and comitted for psychiatric observation. Have more dignity and you’ll be taken more seriously. And Ms Josephine O’Connor, please don’t teach that sort of behavior to students, they have enough problems finding positive role models as it is!] Because those words have nothing to do with you and everything to do with the awful, twisted, weak-minded and hateful person spewing them. [Editor’s Note: Well, Josephine, that’s not the message you shared in this post! You seem to have thought it had a lot to do with YOU, and the fact you’re sharing it seems to reinforce that observation.] I hope that you find sense of exhilaration that comes from knowing that only your own opinion of yourself counts.” [Editor’s Note: That’s exactly the problem with society today: teachers encourage students not to live, work, and associate as members of community but to isolate themselves as being self-important. The very basics of ethics is missing in that statement! Josephine O’Connor, you are an endangerment to the youth of this community! You obviously never took an ethics course!]

Ms O’Connor concludes her post with the words, “Feel free to pass this along.” We have done that. Thank you, Josephine!

Of course, the usual Coeymanazis chimed in with their usual bovine mooing of chagrin and disgust: Cathy [Long] DeLuca (of all people! and with her history!), Sarah Berchtold Engel, and a couple of others commented, though not on the substance of the post from what we could read. But if you know any of the main commenters named above, you’d wonder why they would want to direct attention to themselves! Especially when weight is the subject!

This is no joke; Josephine O’Connor is a not a real-life teacher (she lied in her posting), but she really did post the message on FaceBook, on an account called “Save the Arts at RCS.”

Read a companion article on another crown dingleberry of the RCS CSD, Matt Miller, self-proclaimed atheist teacher and president of the teachers association (just a nice way of saying teachers union!) at Matt Miller: “I Seen The BLOGGER!!!!”
