    This is outrageous!

    I studied in business-related program at SUNY Binghamton some time ago. Back then, the students from the "less rigorous" departments, as we politely called them, would stage "die-ins" in front of our building because "capitalism kills". We used to stand inside where it was nice and warm sipping coffee and laughing at them through the big windows.

    Another death in Broome county Jail

    Stop annoying Fred, he's still a Port Dickinson police officer and this post is a hate crime! You'll end up spending a night in Broome County jail. Followed by an eternity of nothing.

    Another death in Broome county Jail

    It's a misdemeanor that comes with a record. That "wrist slap" is going to be struck down as unconstitutional, as well. The words chosen in the legislation have already been struck down as unconstitutionally vague in other statutes the past. In any case, nearly all first responders are good people doing a difficult job with integrity, but all are just human and some are untrustworthy and vindictive, just like everybody else. We have existing laws against harassment, assault, resisting arrest, and disobeying lawful orders that are more than adequate to address situations that need to be addressed. What's going to happen in real life is that bad cops are going to use it to fabricate reasons to arrest people who correctly object to their actions, just like bad officers continued to misrepresent about the law for years to make false arrests for recording them. Fred himself is the main cheerleader here and his ties to sketchy police unions, many of which he pulled strings with to get them to endorse Battisti, are a problem. The police unions' legislative agenda is, and always been, to maximize public employment at maximum expense with minimum accountability, both to the public and to local government. It's just more "War on Police" fantasy publicity stunting to scare the public at what is actually the safest time for American LEOs in modern history. Bear in mind that we live in a community where the police chief's own family has committed multiple serious crimes and where he and his wife took an active role in using their badges to prevent people from getting justice, where our own sheriff purportedly let his family loot the evidence locker, and where two sheriff's deputies - one of whom was Fred - were accused of driving to the scene of an accident, threatening a domestic violence victim, and tampering with evidence, including bringing the drunk driver home to give him more beer to make it impossible for state police to determine his BAC. None of these people have faced consequences as it is, and their inevitable abuses of this poorly-conceived idea will only make people more frightened of speaking up. As much as I disagree with their choice to disrupt the parade, it's no coincidence that this proposal was announced right after people were arrested for publicly protesting what goes on in the jail. The real "war" here is against us as taxpayers.

    ...and now it seems a wildly unconstitutional bill made it out of committee in the county legislature to make it an arrestable offense if a first responder decides you are annoying, so the threshold for being in that jail is liable to be basically "nothing". http://gobroomecounty.com/sites/default/files/dept/legis/November Proposed Resolutions REVISED.pdf To say these people are union pawns is an understatement.

    Battisti: “Akshar cost me the election”

    Thank you. In my opinion, he was trying to smear Garzo's sanity because he was afraid Garzo was going to blow the lid off what Battisti was doing with client funds and he wanted to undermine Garzo's credibility ahead of it. As I've said, serial gaslighter.

    Battisti: “Akshar cost me the election”

    That's what Fred gets for getting mixed up with Paul. Everyone else is always the bad guy when things go south. Garzo must have really had to swallow his pride to support him after the way Paul acted when he left the firm.

    2019 DA's race: the winners and losers

    Said it before, but Paul and his wife are gaslighters extraordinaire. They lie so convincingly that people are questioning their memory of events before they'll accept that it was a con. Everything is turned around so that they are victims. Case in point: Who do you think told George that? Paul has told people he went to school with George (although for all I know he was lying about that, too). I'm sure George thought he could trust Paul not to just use him and send him off to embarrass himself reciting fake numbers Paul pulled out of his ass. If George asks him WTF happened, Paul will never return his call and then claim he didn't get the message. Maybe he'll even pretend to call Cindy and yell at her, but there will be nobody on the other end of the call. If George pushes, Paul will tell people it was George's fault for misunderstanding him.

    2019 DA's race: the winners and losers

    Let's not forget that while Battisti and Bergman were chewing the scenery about Korchak filing a mistaken indictment and catching the error before it did any harm (I believe Bergman very dramatically claimed he'd 'never heard of anything like this happening anywhere in America' or something similar), Jackson had just made the news for blowing up the conviction of a child sex predator by taking the case all the way through a costly trial without actually remembering to file the charge he was taking her to trial on. https://wbng.com/news/top-stories/2019/02/21/appeals-court-throws-out-former-dance-teachers-sex-abuse-indictment/ That was already her second trial, because Mollen's office had lost the first conviction on appeal, in part because they'd managed to charge the woman under a law that didn't actually exist at the time she was accused of committing it. Another victimized family put through the wringer due to the baffling incompetence of the Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight.

    Election Night Thread

    Over five points in Dickinson, where SUNY Broome is. LOL. I said it from the beginning, the better people know Battisti the more likely it is they reject him. The hornet's nest over the Stantz investigation really just gave voice to what the city already thought of him. He is the only person who is not an elected official that I've had multiple people randomly start telling me how much they hate his guts, like they were boiling over inside and just had to get it out.

    It's exactly what I'd expect from people affiliated with the class of losers who are so useless and dysfunctional in the private sector that they get into public service for the money.

    2019 DA's race: the winners and losers

    Mirella's had an active lawsuit against CVAC for some years now. The gist of it was that when Mirella publicly endorsed Cornwell against Mollen, she believes that Christine began publicly slandering her on Mollen's behalf based on confidential information which CVAC had gotten in the course of providing her help as a crime victim. She contacted CVAC and asked them to fire Christine, and supposedly CVAC instead went to Cornwell and pressured him to keep her quiet. The case was recently dismissed by summary judgment - there's no evidence CVAC knew what Christine was doing until Mirella called, regardless of what Christine actually did or did not do - and Ron Benjamin is appealing. Say what you will about Ron Benjamin, but he must be making a mint representing all these people who have beefs with the Battistis. There's no shortage of them.

    So wait, they basically killed an Eagle Scout over a traffic offense? Jesus Christ, Harder.

    The Hunting of Dan Livingston

    We can respectfully agree to disagree about this, Jack, but while I think Sophia is a fine lady and I wish her the absolute best of luck, your choice of words was interesting. If you don't "wish nor need to hear" about the pledge of allegiance issue it might be worth reflecting on the motives behind publicizing it. Fair play, he handed them the gun, but they took the shot because they can't say he was wrong on the issue. We have an adversarial system in court for a reason - to find facts - and it's good and proper for the parties to serve that purpose in city council, too. Papastrat used to play himself up as a fiscal hawk and make Matt Ryan sit down and defend the individual line items on spending proposals. Now that David is in office? To say that oversight has broken down is an understatement. The sewage treatment plant is a very serious and very local crumbling infrastructure issue. My prediction - and I hope I'm wrong, but I'll bet you a beer I'm not - is that when the city finally unveils the truth of how bad this is going to be for us as ratepayers, David is going to bury it like he accidentally strangled it in a strip club, and local media is going to stand next to him holding the flashlight while he digs. Good to see you posting again.
