Police Chief Buturla Running on Empty

05Apr10

Buturla's Conscience

Despite having denied to his own officer’s that he did not request that his old friends in the Connecticut State Police help him persecute officers under his command, the evidence that John Buturla did exactly that is overwhelming and documented below.

Complete Complaint and Documentation

It is bad enough that Chief Buturla wasted the resources of the Connecticut State Police Western District Major Crime Unit (honest to goodness, major crime?), but he did so with the clear purpose of persecuting an officer who was not only injured in the line of duty, but forced to retire by Linda and Joe Loschiavo. The only word that can be used to describe the treatment of Officer O’Meara is “disgusting”.

Beyond relentlessly persecuting Officer O’Meara, Captain McNeil and Lieutenant Soto, Chief Buturla will use any tool at his disposal including internal investigations of officers for the most minor violations of “policies” (we think he makes them up to suit the event).

Does anyone still wonder why police department morale is at such an abysmal level?

It is well past the time that this martinet of a police chief be asked to leave.

    Is there any chance (please Dear God, let there be a chance) that this can be considered “conduct unbecoming an officer”????

    I have seen an advertisement for Doug O’Meara Lawn Service in the Star.
    If it is the same man as the former officer who applied for police disability
    pension, it could raise questions?

    I am neither accusing nor defending anyone.
    I am raising an issue.
    I do not want to deprive anyone of a livelihood.
    I do not agree with the treatment by Winterbottom and Burturlas towards
    officer O’Meara.
    I have my own issues related to Mirons / Burturlas.

    Weisel’s story about Justin LoSchiavo plainted a pretty clear picture
    about political connections of:
    > Justin’s Father as D/C;
    > Justin’s Mother as H. R.
    > Mayor Miron as highly knowledgeable of Justin’s condition.

    Why is the CT. POST not raising issues about the ROLES of the TOWN
    ATTORNEY and the POLICE CHIEF?
    1 – TOWN ATTORNEY is sole interpreter of Town Charter and LAW
    2 – POLICE CHIEF is the ranking police official and expert on violations

    Rex,

    “I believe was the campaign slogan was RESTORE THE PRIDE”

    Really? I thought it was “Anyone but Miron!”

    Apparently when politicians are in office, it is up to normal people to explain the difference between right and wrong to them very clearly and very often.

    For example, Buturla is still Police Chief and McNeil and Soto are still suspended without pay.

    Cavanaugh is still Fire Chief no matter how many lies he tells.

    Donna Best is still EMS Administrator no matter how many volunteers she turns away or punishes.

    Rich Buturla and Berchem Moses & Devlin are still billing the Town.

    None of this seems to be sinking in to anyone who is supposed to be running this Town.

    It is absolutely the same man who served the citizens of Stratford for so long. While he can no longer chase felons and subdue them for us (which is how he was injured) he can certainly sit behind the wheel of a truck and ride a lawn mower.

    Perhaps you are not familiar with the latest lawn mowing technology?

    And in case you forgot, he was forced to retire at a 50% disability pension unlike most former town employees.

    If you want the finest lawn mowing available from an honest and hardworking former cop, then I suggest to call

    Doug O’Meara Lawn Service today!

    You forgot to mention the public works director and our ACTING finance director. I agree with you on the others, thus my point on another post of having all of these “big fish” to fry and they go after one little fish with all their time and assets as all of the big fish further drain our tax dollars. Not that I am defending the little fish, but it seems to lack a sense of priorities.

    While these big fish cashed their big checks (over the one quarter of a year that our new Mayor has been in office) McNeal and Soto struggled to feed their families. After all that has been in the press concerning the Miron Administration and its highly questionable financial and personnel practices I would have expected MUCH more action by now. Mr. Harkins and Councilmembers if you are reading, the time for action is passing quickly. We are still waiting for you to cut the cord from the Miron Administration and RESTORE THE PRIDE. I would start by asking for the resignations of the four Miron appointed heads of the police and fire departments, as they seem to be the most politically inspired. It shouldn’t hurt to ask, and if that doesn’t work, build a case with the mountain of evidence that is out there and FIRE THEM. Everyone knows that it needs to be done, and for the benefit of us taxpayers, it needs to be done quickly.

  8. 8 1george1

    If the objective is to chase out Miron’s people and put in your people,
    how are you different than Miron?

    I forgot – Miron’s people have no redeeming qualities.
    You people are Saints or Red Devils of maximum capability.

    It is not that I disagree with the assessment of some of Mironistas.
    I do disagree with some other assessments.
    Why would I want to replace one group of Tyrants with another group of Tyrants
    who only protect their political partisans and care nothing about unaffiliated or
    the GENERAL PUBLIC?

    I really have not seen much of a difference, except superficially.
    One group looking to replace another group for SPOILS.

    As for Officer O’Meara, he could have gone public and done other
    options, but he did not. He made several of his own choices, including
    some that are covered by personnel records and privacy.

    I could not write public letter of support, since he made choices.
    I could and did blog my support. I do believe officer O’Meara was
    mistreated by the Administration.

    However there was a gray area, from what I was told and heard at the
    Pension Meetings.

    When it comes to gray areas, it appears Jeze either hates or loves –
    backs or attacks. Is that a fair or unfair assessment?

  9. 9 jezebel282

    George,

    Your post makes little sense.

    “If the objective is to chase out Miron’s people and put in your people,
    how are you different than Miron?”

    The object is to have an honest and ethical government. That cannot be done with dishonest and unethical administration. It does not benefit either Harkins or the taxpayers to retain this (small) caliber of “talent”.

    “As for Officer O’Meara, he could have gone public and done other
    options, but he did not. ”

    Officer O’Meara has pursued every avenue open and available to him in his quest for justice. He has investigated on his own, foi’ed countless documents, sought legal advice and written innumerable letters.

    You are clearly wrong in your facts, George.

    “When it comes to gray areas, it appears Jeze either hates or loves –
    backs or attacks.”

    The truth is the truth, George. It is clear to some and invisible to others. Making the truth known with real facts is not such an easy thing to do. I have never, not once, ever advocated anything for myself other than as a taxpayer and voter.

  10. 10 1george1

    Jeze,

    Neither of us are doing anything related to stratford for personal gain,
    to my knowledge.

    I had limited dealings with Officer O’Meara. I can only write from my experience.
    I have nothing good or bad to write about his Landscaping Business.
    I simply note that Landscaping is normally very physical and Mr. O’Meara went out
    on disability, which in some peoples’ view causes an issue?

    Another person on disabilty had problems with disability because he
    was seen shoveling snow at his home and his parents home.
    As to disability: Is that wrong? Is that right? I do not know!

    I have a severely bad back.
    I had to shovel snow, because it is:
    – Public safety issue
    – the law to clear sidewalks
    – Liability issue

    Despite pain, I took aspirin, and did what I had to do, before the
    snow froze and became a safety issue for others and myself.

    Oh – what a terrible crime it is for someone else who has a bad back
    and shoveled his parent’s and his home? I think it is a good son.
    As to disability: Is that wrong? Is that right? I do not know!

    The truth is the truth, Jeze.
    It is clear to some and invisible to others.
    Making the truth known with real facts is not such an easy thing to do.

    The truth can be seen in 180 degrees different perceptions as in seen
    by someone paying the bill and someone being paid = perceived value.

    The Truth can be seen in 90 degree difference by partisans or one side
    or another, who want to use PART of the TRUTH best for their advocacy.

    You and I are presonifications of people who honestly view some truth in
    different perceptions, where neither of us considers the other a liar.

    Even Burturlas and Mirons tell (selective) truths.
    They often can legitimize certain arguments.

    However … Please remmeber my Pinocchio quote …

    Update:

    New Haven Register
    New Haven police chief takes charge
    Published: Tuesday, April 6, 2010

    “On Monday morning, Mayor John DeStefano Jr. swore in the retired Chicago police veteran as the new chief of the city’s 452-member department. He will earn $150,000 a year and is moving into a condominium complex in the City Point neighborhood.”

    Chief Buturla, maybe you should try sending those resumes out of state where the police officers don’t know you?

  12. 12 mayor2013

    Very said news for the members of Stratford’s finest and a huge continuing deficit to the taxpayer’s of this community.

    Mr. Bauer,

    Is Chief Buturla still driving his assigned police vehicle to Rowaton or wherever the hell he lives on our taxes?

  13. 13 jezebel282

    2013,

    Obviously Harkins hope that Buturla would just leave and become New Haven’s problem has been dashed.

    In answer to your other question, yes. Buturla still drives his gas guzzling SUV back and forth to Roxbury every day (when he actually shows up at his office). We, of course, also pay for his gas.

    It may be that Harkins might actually have to do something.

  14. 14 mayor2013

    jez,
    I believe that the Mayor must take immediate action regarding the “current policy on “take home” vehicles for every one assigned a take home vehicle.

    Mr. Bauer,

    How about the institution of a 4-day work week and salaries adjusted accordingly for all non-essential departments. If someone does a workup on it – it will save a bundle in salaries and I’m certain the taxpayer will not mind the temporary inconvenience to accessing those departments. I’m certain we will be very appreciative for the savings to this rediculous tax increase.

    In Shelton – 91 teachers are being laid off – taxes will NOT rise.
    In Trumbull – a 1.7% increase
    In Bridgeport – a 1 mill increase -all unions will have to make concessions or lay-offs will be ordered
    In Monroe – taxpayers just rejected a 5.7% proposed increase. First Selectman will now be ordering lay-offs if concessions are not readily offered and that includes the BOE.

    Come on Stratford, its a serious recession; we cannot afford this increase. Either the employees voluntarily concede or lay offs will be implemented.

  15. 15 sudds

    “Buturla still drives his gas guzzling SUV back and forth to Roxbury every day”

    I think he should be assigned Miron’s old Smart Car… it’s not like inclement weather is going to keep him from coming in this time of the year!!!

    Mr. Bauer… any chance you can make this happen???

    Here… I’ll even offer up my “services” for free (just remember this when you are looking to fill the “no show” job at the train station)…

    Stratford to Roxbury – 35 miles (per maps.google.com)
    round-trip = 70 miles per day
    one week = 350 miles
    48 weeks a year (allows for vacations/holidays/etc) = 16,800 miles

    A large SUV gets about 15 miles to the gallon = 1,120 gallons of gas
    gas at $2.90 a gallon = $3,248

    a smart car gets about 40 miles a gallon = 420 gallon of gas
    gas at $2.90 a gallon = $1,218

    ERGO…

    and SUV ($3,248) replaced with a smart car ($1,218) would save the town $2,030 per year just in gas!!

  16. 16 phineast

    2013-
    You cannot compare Stratford to any of the surrounding towns-those towns were not deliberately underfunded by a mayor that knew he was playing with fire. Miron left the town in a financial disaster state-when you deliberately underfund areas like the T.A.’s office and OT lines and take money from one dept and put it in another which leaves a black hole–you unfortunately have to make up the money. That is what is currently happening. If Stratford doesn’t correct the short falls and demonstrate some type of long range plan we end up paying higher interest rates for any bonding. That is what Harkins has to deal with in part. I got in to a very heated argument with Miron the moron after two of the debates about what he did with the budgets-he was so stupid-that in his head he really believed that the bill would never come due.
    No one wants a tax increase-but we do want our town to go in the right direction and save as much money as possible from now on. Harkins fortunately has the the testosterone to put Stratford on the right track.

  17. 17 cstratct

    Phin,

    I just want to make sure I understand your point. Are you suggesting the OT line is actually underfunded and we should be putting MORE dollars in OT? Shouldn’t we actually be trying to reduce this line rather than expand it?

    While I don’t know the details regarding the TA’s office, I can understand that those costs can be significant given the caseload and any other issues that arise that require legal expertise. But OT? While emergencies arise, we should have a better way of dealing with certain situations then just throwing OT dollars at them.

    Perhaps I’m not understanding your point, but I would rather see OT reduced through better management procedures then simply raising the line.

  18. 18 jezebel282

    Phin,

    “You cannot compare Stratford to any of the surrounding towns-those towns were not deliberately underfunded by a mayor that knew he was playing with fire.”

    This statement leaves me puzzled. If I recall, Miron and the Councils raised our taxes 25.74% in those four years. Where did the money go?

  19. 19 phineast

    CT what I am saying is that for 2 years the numbers in several areas were deliberately kept artificially low–which means that miron was aware that lawsuits were coming and there were other things that were on the radar that needed to be planned for and he deliberately left numbers low so he could claim he reduced taxes–when in actuality he didn’t ask council to fund the correct amount so we were out of money in specific areas due to his deliberate plan. Just like when someone overspends on a credit card or gambles too much at the casino–the bill eventually comes due. Looking at the miron family financial history is is obvious that they are incompetent with money. the problem remains that all the money for certain things was exhausted for the entire year BEFORE Harkins took office.
    Jez’s question is correct-where did the money go???? Seems that a pile went to the cash outs of the former mayor’s staff, a pile and then some went to BMD, then you can’t forget the $money for all the flowers that were planted at the END of the season on over time that should have been reserved for the snow season, or the light post that the former mayor had painted on overtime….the list of waste is endless. I’m still wondering how much we paid in brokerage fees for all that granite in the cneter…Maybe $80k or so????

  20. 20 cstratct

    Phin,

    That still doesn’t explain increasing the line for what you call an “underfunded” OT line. Why should we be increasing this line in the upcoming budget? I thought the goal was to reduce the lines, not increase them? I’m all for reducing the TA’s line as well if at all possible. All I was saying earlier was that the OT line seems a bit more obvious then the TA line.

    As for paying BMD, unless I’ve missed something, I haven’t heard anything from the Harkins administration saying that funds were misappropriated to BMD. I understand that Mr. Bishop is restructuring the office and the argument is that this will take time and resources (i.e. money) to get done. I may not necessarily agree with the assumptions being made, but I’m willing to wait and see what comes of this and if this office can be made more efficient.

    And let’s at least deal in facts. Your final comment has no facts to support it. Would the Town Council not have attacked something like that when they approved the work? There are plenty of legitimate avenues of inquiry, this one just seems to veer off-course.

  21. 21 jezebel282

    “There are plenty of legitimate avenues of inquiry, this one just seems to veer off-course.”

    There is simply no way to claw back any of that money or discover where it went until a forensic audit is done. The last 4 years scream out for such an audit.

  22. 22 1george1

    FOLKS

    The Mayor(s) propose the BUDGET(s).
    The Town Council (s) pass the BUDGET (s).

    The Mayor and Department heads make or break BUDGETS.

    The past mostly Republican Town Councils and Boards of Ed
    are responsible for the growth of costs and reductions in
    revenue along with the Mayors / Town Councils and dept
    heads like:
    Town Attorney
    Finance
    Clerk
    HR
    Police
    Fire
    PW
    Town Hall

    Jim Miron deserves blame, but no where near all of the blame.

    His daddy deserves much of the blame along with the last 20
    years of department heads, elected, and appointees.

    Jeze, you have pointed out occasionally that you have somewhat
    of a similar opinion, except that you simply enjoy pouncing on
    the Miron failings more, in part because many feel they are NFG

  23. 23 jezebel282

    George,

    “in part because many feel they are NFG”

    You are correct. In part. You left out Liar, Bully, Incompetent, Vindictive, Petty, Corrupt, Egomaniac and Psychopath. Other than that, yeah, pretty much.

  24. 24 phineast

    CT- obviously you don’t have the experience that those of us who have been following the town process for greater than 4 times the amount of time you have lived here have.
    Budget 101-in planning and presenting a budget to council for approval you have to be honest about what you need and plan for what you expect with a bit extra for the unexpected. Miron did not do that-he presented multiple dishonest budgets for council to vote on. It was his JOB that he was PAID to do, council reviews the information presented that they presume is factual and decide to keep it, raise it or cut it. This is the simplest version I can give you to understand as I have already explained it. Miron knew he had many legal cases coming up to be budgeted for-he created most of them himself–last count on the assorted (including things that were not of his making) that were on various dockets were in the range of 25 cases. He deliberately undershot the dollar amount needed. He said it at one of the debates-he guaranteed that taxes would go up this year. Now council receives the budget-they as volunteers review the information and question just about everything-and if you are given honest answers you might be able to correct damage but if you aren’t given honest or detailed answers you are screwed. Gavin asked for information for a long time before the budget was voted on-he didn’t get it until long after-because of Miron’s lack of cooperation ultimately the taxpayers are screwed.

    The new TA has all the Miron cases to resolve and a few that aren’t Miron cases-once those are put to rest the TA budget will be just about cut in half.
    Miron moved money around with out the council’s knowledge or permission-like when he paid for the extra $30k for the Arts commission production without council permission. It is hard to go after everything when the information isn’t forth coming. We know that the former mayor used OT money that was budgeted for potential storm needs to plant flowers and paint light posts as an example. Once the money has been voted on by council they no longer have line item control even deptarment heads didn’t have control, and if you ever read one of Miron’s budgets he didn’t deal in line items too well he clustered things for less accountability so the question is did he misappropriate the money or move it around because he could. I personally think it was a bit of both.
    One final thing CT-YOU can present the documentation as to who the broker was for the granite. I can guarantee you it was NOT the construction company-they don’t broker for that-there is no need, the only need was a certain individual needed money. If it was brokered- the taxpayers were ripped off…again.

    I still have concerns over the budget that we are now looking at. The reasons???? Because there are a couple of people that are less than reliable as administrators that have submitted the information(liar liar pants of fire ring a bell? for one…) so I have questions about the information they submitted-do I trust them to be accurate? Simply put, No.

    I do not envy Harkins position right now-but at least he is doing his best to be straight forward, and I am sure that if anyone can find place to reduce expenditures without reducing services he would welcome the information. He has to catch up for the money that Miron used up and didn’t properly plan for and include it in next years numbers so we don’t get socked with a rating drop-because that is what is going to happen because of Miron’s lack of planning. We don’t want Stratford’s finances to be run like Lakeview Monument….that is onof the reasons that Miron got voted out–he was financially irresponsible with money that wasn’t his .

    The BOE side of the budget is a whole different kettle of fish….I fully expect that Lordship school will be closed. They too have to absorb some of the cuts that are coming down the pike. I also happen to believe they have more padding than they let on. One thing there is no doubt about -it is going to be a painful budget year all the way around.

  25. 25 cstratct

    Phin,

    I’m not trying to be antagonistic, and your shots at me regarding what you see as my lack of experience are unwarranted, if for no other reason then the number of years a person has been observing something doesn’t automatically lead to a clearer understanding of the issue. That said, I know how the budgets are prepared, passed and implemented.

    Second, you talk about all the “Miron cases” to resolve and then say that “once those are put to rest the TA budget will be just about cut in half.” Please tell me what crystal ball you’re using that provides you with such certainty. No one knows what legal issues may arise, so to believe that once the existing caseload is reduced the costs will be cut in half is wishful thinking but nothing more.

    As for the “documentation” issue, you raised the issue so it is incumbent upon you to provide the proof to support your accusation. And just so we’re clear here, I’m not defending Richard Miron or anyone else. What Richard Miron did was reprehensible. He should be removed from the DTC (if that hasn’t already been done) and should have no further involvement in any political activities. But there needs to be proof of your accusation, and it’s not up to others to prove your point.

    I agree with your final point, but at the present time it doesn’t look like enough is being done to cut the budget. It may very well mean a reduction in services. I don’t like it anymore then anyone else, but something’s got to give.

  26. 26 phineast

    Ct- It wasn’t a shot at you just an observation based on what you asked. There is no question you know your stuff when it comes to the theater-but you made it clear you didn’t understand what I had previously written. It takes a long time to figure out the nuances of the budget and what is being done correctly and what isn’t. Many times the public points out issues and discrepancies and they are ignored by those in charge-I hope that issues that may be brought up will be addressed this time around.
    There are areas in the budget where there is overlap and duplication and those are the areas that need to be cleaned up, example: in the payroll department-there is someone in town hall that does all the processing of information submitted by the pw admin, fd, health dept etc., but for some reason the pd has a civilian running their payroll-it used to be an administrative pd duty and is now listed in the pd admin line budget but not as a payroll specialist-so why do we have to pay for an extra person to do a job that can be handled internally by admin officers and the TH payroll dept????? That is about $50k right there. Sounds like a drop in the bucket…but all the drops add up.
    with regard to the TA-I should have added that it is projected to be cut by approx half barring any unforeseen surprises.

  27. 27 1george1

    Jeze,
    My NFG tends to incorporate the other adjectives you appropriately used.

    Phin / Mayor 2013 / Chris / Mike R / Sudds / Star / Jeze / PCS
    I am constantly asked what I think of Harkins / new administration.

    John is a gentle man of considerable charm and I believe he has many
    good intents.
    Conversely, John IS HOOKED INTO the PEOPLE who supported him.

    1. I believe the NO BID Fire Trucks were CLEAR, PLAIN, and OBVIOUS PAYOLA,
    by the MAYOR and the TOWN COUNCIL.

    2. We have the SAME LAW FIRMS as messed up Statford the last 20 years.
    If there are cleaning up of redundant cases, it will because the time table
    has come to fruition, where the BIG MONEY will be made by allowing the
    held back to be unleashed, to the steered personnel.

    3. DOGSTAR moved exceptional rapidly after the election, into Mobil –
    Chemical + Ramada + ARMY had JUNE drop dead date, the same month
    as DICK MIRON will magically refund victims.

    4. DOT is moving on MOSES WHEELER BRIDGE with NO PUBLIC FORUMS.

    5. AIRPORT PURCHASE has been on the TOWN COUNCIL DOCKET at least
    4 years, with only occasional Executive Session by a Town Attorney whose
    firm actively represents Stratford AND Bridgeport on multiple issues.
    A. There have been NO PUBLIC FORUMS hosted by Stratford EVER, whereas
    the FAA, BRIDGEPORT, and TOWN ATTORNEY have to answer to tax payers.
    B. The FAA and BRIDGEPORT control all venues, regardless of huffing/puffing!

    6. The RAYMARK EPA has NOT had PUBLIC HEARINGS in over 3 YEARS, despite
    being a major campaign issue.

    7. The Stratford Government and political parties are SILENT about the
    PENSION ABUSES, allowed or caused by TOWN ATTORNEYS, MAYORS,
    TOWN MANAGERS, LABOR NEGOTIATORS, TOWN COUNCILS, PENSION
    BOARDS, whereas under Mayor (D) Miron and Town (R) Councils under
    Feehan and Henrick the pension obligations increased about 42 % in
    43 months, Jan 2006 to July 2009.

    8. Town Attorney fees from 1998 and Pension Obligations up from 1994,
    both over 400 % to 2009. Health Insurance, Budgets, and others are in
    comparable modes, while Published average 2006 Home Sale prices of
    $ 346,000 are 50 % higher than average 2009 Home Sale price: $ 219,000
    A) Over 40 % of Stratford households are leveraged to max or under water
    according to Planning Commission presentation.

    9. FBI / JUSTICE US ATTORNEYS have not convicted – incarcerated any
    corruption since Rowland, Ganim, Newton in Bridgeport Fabrizi, Shelton
    Lauretti, Stratford Mirons, RTC-DTC and officials, Fairfield, Milford,
    Trumbull, Norwalk, or Harford, while $ 50 BILLION Bridgeport-Stratford
    Economic Development stagnated or … steered?

  28. 28 jezebel282

    Phin,

    “It takes a long time to figure out the nuances of the budget and what is being done correctly and what isn’t.”

    That, my friend, is exactly the point. In structure and content it is essentially the same budget we see year after year. There are no worksheets, no differentiation between actual and estimated numbers and precious few annotations. Once the budget is passed (does anyone think the current council will override anything?) all that will change are the words “proposed” to “actual”.

    Without zero based budgeting we will never know what the costs really are. I know I keep harping on the Town Attorney salary/fee item, but that is a clear example. We must approve nearly doubling attorney salaries/fees based upon “trust me”.

    Q. Do you know how a politician says “F**k you”?
    A. “Trust me.”

    Jez-I do understand what you are saying-I also would like to see what the actual expenditures were-what we see are the approvals from year to year. It is my belief that we will see that change over-and we can actually push for it but the problem with that thinking is you always will be more than a year behind in actual’s because the year is not complete when approval needs to be made. That is the real dilemma. You can always go to the workshops with George, he says he attends them-I bet he’d even give you a ride… 😉

    If we were still dealing with RB as the lead TA I would agree with your final comment-but we are not. Tim is probably the only honest attorney I have met, and believe me I know lots of them. I am willing to give him a chance to change the public opinion of the TA’s office, just like I am willing to give John a chance to change the direction of Stratford.

  30. 30 jezebel282

    Phin,

    “but the problem with that thinking is you always will be more than a year behind ”

    That is not entirely accurate. The BOE has had a zero based budget for 2+ years now. It is a necessarily more accurate method. It is also another reason Ben Branyan knows from day to day what his budget situation is. (That and his preference for an extensive spreadsheet over anything containing text).

    “just like I am willing to give John a chance”

    (shiver) That’s what I heard Richard Miron say about Jim Miron.

    I am not yet willing to make that leap of faith and put my money down. The odds aren’t there yet. Harkins has yet to prove he has the sense of right and wrong as well as the fortitude to make it happen…. in my opinion.

  31. 31 mayor2013

    Phin,

    The mayor and his chief of staff need to get out and walk the streets. The electorate is not pleased with this budget proposal – and if it is not significantly reduced and kept in line with the prevailing economic conditions – the mayor is here for one term only. We voted for him to get rid of a maniac. He should not bask in the thought that the mandate was because of overwhelming support for him. He better get real with this – and your lovefest with him leaves your analysis null and void.

  32. 32 1george1

    Jeze is basicially correct in the above.

    The budgets are fill in the blank templates.
    Miron kept Branyan around to do the 1st Budget.
    Then he dumped him.

    I missed /overlooked the Public Safety Workshop.
    I forgot about the Train Station Development Center meeting Thurs.

    Wednesday Finance workshop, I learned Web Creation + e-mail is
    outsource. I found the company QSCEND TECHNOLOGIES is in
    Waterbury, another political carp hole, controlled by (R).

    They appear to subcontract to mostly governments, not unlike
    much of the Berchem, Moses, Devlin Website list

    Ideal for outsourced plausible deniability and tapping into Public
    information. QSCEND WEBSITE has NOTHING on it about OWNERS
    or OFFICERS, which is normally a mainstay for legitimate companies.

    It appears to be privately held.

    To me more RED FLAGS.

  33. 33 1george1

    I think Jeze is starting to come more along to my perspective,
    that the Demon-crats and RepubliCONN-artist do not CARE at all
    about the people.

    law
    constitution
    public decency
    ethics
    simple humanity

    COMPARING INTERRNATIONAL/NATIONAL to LOCAL:
    Lawyers, Politicians, Lobbiest, Military Leaders, Intelligence leaders,
    Corporate puppets and friendly private industry appear to make all
    of the world’s past villains, look incompetent and sane…..

    They love MALiables like Mirons/Burturlas/etc.
    Marx called them useful idiots.

    I believe Marx, was also a useful idiot, since the intelligence and
    war college communities use identified weakness to pervert the
    ways and means to peaceful reform …

    Since they control the political justice system …..
    Since they control the police / military enforcement ……

  34. 34 1george1

    If or when peace is more profitable and desirable ….

    If or when construction rather than destruction …..

    If or when people who claw their way to power have an epithany
    like Paul of Taursus …..

    Then and only then does pan do ra HOPE become
    Judeo
    Catholic
    Christian
    Enlightened

    REALITY

  35. 35 jezebel282

    George,

    “I think Jeze is starting to come more along to my perspective,”

    OMG!

    Maybe Sudds and Mike are right….I need to play more golf.

    Hey M-2013…

    “if it is not significantly reduced and kept in line with the prevailing economic conditions – the mayor is here for one term only.”

    …it’s about time you said something legit!!!

  37. 37 1george1

    Sudds,

    every blog needs comic relief – thank you!

    I spoke to John the night of his swearing in.

    He told me he was only doing this 1 term, and then I’m outta here.
    I believe this is is present intent.

    The way the pipeline is set up …. it the parties leave something for
    the people … who knows?

    I do sales and marketing.
    Everything is prospecting and pipelines
    Nothing means anything until contracts are signed,
    recision passes, checks are cashed, installed, and
    service is superior to satisfactory for retention.

    Politics and government.

    It is not their money, except what certain people can steal or steer.
    Politics is indirect capitalism. He builds binding bonds, kinda like the
    BONDS of unindicted coconspirators.

    I just can’t get away from the “C” word … 😉

  38. 38 phineast

    2013- I have no love fest with any of the politicos. I do have to say this administration is much easier to work with than Miron and his minions, from a volunteering perspective. The workers in town hall have been quoted multiple times over that it is like night and day, or they can finally breathe and get down to doing the work of the people-the air gets a bit cleaner every day in town hall, especially now that LL is going to be out for a while(and if we are lucky forever).

    You are correct about taking this to the streets-the mayor needs to go out and beat a drum that is louder than the” give it all to education” drum that we hear EVERY year which is always followed by a boat load of threats about school closings. The real issue is the BOE is OVER 52% of the budget and there are many things that are BOE expenses that the town still absorbs. The 1st order of business should be to bill the BOE for all those things that we can legally get back from their budget…like 50% of the costs of grounds maintenance–for starters…. PW expends a tremendous amount of time and energy on the grounds of the schools, but sharing it should be a large part of the operational costs of the BOE. There are currently a small portion of hours billed back but not even remotely close to what would be a fair number…50% is a fair number.
    Administratively both sides of the budget are heavy but the BOE is exceptionally heavy. Ben does the best he can with what he has to work with, but is it the best budget it can truly be? NO. Nobody wants to be the one to get down and dirty and really clean it out and sort it out, but someone has to-we can’t afford to continue in the direction we are going. The same applies to some departments on the town side. There are administrative things that can be consolidated which would save the taxpayers a fortune. Will it make everyone happy? nope. Will it take a while to adjust to? yes. Most important-will it work? YES.

    Am I willing to give John a chance? Yes. He spent a lot of years in the state and he didn’t destroy Stratford-so yes, I am willing to take a leap of faith and let him do his best and I’ll even help him if he wants. I offered the same to Miron-the big difference was Miron thought he knew everything when he became king. But he didn’t, John on the other hand knows very well that he doesn’t know everything and is asking for people to help him with solutions-he also knows that he is not a king-but a public servant which is far more valuable than any “king” will ever be.

    Phin,
    Miron’s primary Law firms were:
    Berchem, Moses, & Devlin
    Bishop, Kelly, & Jackson

    Harkins’ primary Law firms were:
    Berchem, Moses, & Devlin
    Bishop, Kelly, & Jackson
    Florek & O’Neill

    In his APRIL 1 Letter to the Editor, Harkins blamed the prior Law firms.

    I have zero doubt the FIRE TRUCKS were PAYOLA for the prior 4 years
    BUDGETS and PENSIONS to POLICE and FIRE

    PENSION OBLIGATIONS

    $ 12,085,141.?? > Jan 2006

    Prior 6 years to Harkins election, it was ALL Republican controlled
    Town Councils, Pension Boards, Boards of Ed.

    Ben Branyan was Town Manager
    James Miron was Mayor 4 years

    Who were the TOWN ATTORNEYS?

    primary Law firms were:
    Berchem, Moses, & Devlin
    Bishop, Kelly, & Jackson
    Florek & O’Neill

    Everything in Stratford goes back to the 1989 minibudget
    and 1991 Referendums.

    1989 Burturla was Town Council Chairman
    1991 Referendums – Florek was Town Attorney
    1991 Referendums. – Kevin Kelly’s bro-in-law Williams was Town

    My guess?-she is running out all the days that she can’t cash out. Why they don’t just get rid of her ans save us the money is what I’s like to know. One way to look at it is at least she is gone-for now. She’ll be back in town for the scamarama ding dong night she is gonna need the cash….

  42. 42 mayor2013

    Wow! And with the history of this family – the Mayor is going to let her get away with this???? She is winding down; taking all she can; there is no one else she can get hired or promoted; she knows she is done; this is typical Loschiavo behavior – it has been done time and time and time again. Another bonanza for them and we are paying for it. What a shame!!!!!!

    There has been much focus on the police pensions. How does a police officer retire on $134,000 a year for life and how does he accumulate such massive overtime? Why was the Chief of Police not held to account for this? When this individual had overtime of $25,000, were any questions asked by the Chief of police? How about $50,000-$75,000-$100,000-$125,000 in Town overtime were any questions asked? No, not one question. When an individual makes $125,000 of Town overtime in a 12 month period, the rules are not being followed. The Stratford Police Union asked many questions. The Union even filed several grievances to stop the violations of the contract and Stratford Police Policies. The Chief response to all this? Nothing. This was and will be the largest pension ever paid out by the Town of Stratford. There are many questions on how this was achieved and who approved the overtime. The contract is clear that all overtime for a Captain must be approved by the Chief or Deputy Chief. Can they say they did not know? A Captain in patrol does not have flex hours. How did this person flex their hours multiple times so he could collect overtime? How does this benefit the Town? The Stratford Police Policy states no officer will work more than 16 hours in a 24 hour period. This Patrol Captain was allowed to violate the policy multiple times. Why did the former Stratford Police Deputy Chief intervene when I requested training records from Bridgeport Police Training Division and order the Lieutenant in Bridgeport not to release records to anyone without his authority? I received the records and it showed that the Captain took the same class multiple times on an overtime basis.
    I went to the Chief of police to express my concerns. His response “What are you going to do with it?” The Chief must be a good steward of his budgeted funds. His failure to act created the $134,000 yearly pension. Contracts are negotiated to protect both employee and employer. The Stratford Police Union made every effort to have the abuses stopped, but we were ignored by the Chief.
    A manager at any private industry corporation who allowed this type of flagrant disregard for company policy and contracts would have a serious problem. The Chief of police needs to be held accountable for allowing the highest pension in Stratford’s history.

    Thank you for posting it, Captain McNeil. You have tremendous support in this Town and on this blog. You are welcome to post at any time.

    Local407

    After the Collier/Miron Finance Director appointment; I guess the only person the mayor is able to say “no” to is McNeil and Soto. The very two individuals he should be saying “yes” to.

  50. 50 1george1

    I GET the CT. POST when I take Lunch.
    I saw the McNeil letter.

    In a prior post, I asked if reasonable people would look at
    facts and circumstances in Stratford and find probable cause
    that several people committed crimes?

    I wonder who will be the scapegoats?

    It seems to me that at least one of the bloggers has been
    trying to warn people about people being double crossed?

    McNeil did not open a can of worms, nor a mole hill.

    Sylvia always claimed Berchem and fiends would go to jail
    and be disbarred.

    When people trust other people and knowingly take advantage
    of situations, innocent people can and do get hurt.

    I know many innocent people who have paid grievous prices,
    which were all completely unnecessary.

    “The most powerful human urge is not sex…”

    once Once again we’re going to have to disagree, Jez!!! 😛

  52. 52 omeara128

    Just to let everyone know, if an investigation is initiated by Chief John Buturla of the Stratford Police Dept against YOU and he forwards this complaint to the Western District Major Crime of the CT State Police who then conduct an investigation against YOU and an arrest warrant is applied for against YOU but denied by the States Attorneys Office.

    The outcome, as a resident of CT you can not get the reports to see what the allegations against you were, what statements were made against you to prompt an arrest warrant etc.

    When I asked for the reports from the Ct State Police in Dec of 09 they told me my case wasnt closed and denied my FOI request.( An investigation which started at the Stratford PD in Nov 08 that did not involve me as I was not there for over 1 year.) Then State Police told me the case was closed as of Feb 21, 2010 and that they would release the reports after they redacted some things in it. They said I could call and pick them up, well i called and they said no, we sent you a letter stating why we cant release the reports, (Allegations of uncorroborated illegal activity) , so based on this CT STATUE if you are investigated, an arrest warrant applied for you for a felony charge you have no right to know why you were investigated and what the allegations against you were.

    Doug,
    I can identify with you and your situation.

    I wonder if your probelm causers had anything to do with breaking
    into my home March 18 and setting up the deletion of all documents
    related to:
    Mossman
    Town Attorney payments
    Court Case
    FBI – JUSTICE
    date base info from 2008 forward

    Literally hundreds if not thousands of documents were deleted.

    They chose NOT to DELETE:
    – Personal contact Data Base 2007 & prior
    – Letters to Editor published and work product
    – Letters and ecel and others elated to work, including data base
    – PENSION documentation

    Can anyone explain why they left excel pension documents?
    I have dozens left, from over the years.

    There were also purgings into YAHOO e-mails.

    The FBI / HOMELAND SECURITY have those type of capability,
    but we know they all are honest patriots. …

  55. 55 jezebel282

    Doug,

    “The outcome, as a resident of CT you can not get the reports to see what the allegations against you were, what statements were made against you to prompt an arrest warrant etc. ”

    I believe an appropriate solution would be to suspend John Buturla without pay until such time as he formally apologizes to you, every member of Local 407, the CSP and the State Attorney’s office.

  56. 56 1george1

    Jeze,

    If you find a magic Genie, that is about the only way you will
    see your suggested appropriate solution.

  57. 57 jezebel282

    George,

    “see your suggested appropriate solution.”

    It is as appropriate as the continued suspension without pay of McNeil and Soto is inappropriate.

  58. 58 1george1

    I have always agreed with that contention in the past …..
    So far, I continue to agree.

  59. 59 omeara128

    State Police have gone to great lengths to not let the reports be released. WHY? It was a criminal investigation according to Buturla and the sole focus was against me he told everyone at roll call. So release the reports and lets see..

    All these tax $$$$$ dollars spent to defend me not getting these reports.

  60. 60 rex525

    Not the PRIDE RESTORATION we were hoping for, but I guess the Mayor has been rather buisy “accidently” creating a diverse workforce and updating his facebook page, dedicated to of all things- restoring the pride. I see it is now featured on the town website (rather sophomoric, don’t you agree).

    Officer O’Meara on behalf of the normal voting public I’d like to apologize to you, as well as Capt. O’Neil and Lt. Soto. Most of us appreciate your sacrifices and ASSUMED that the votes we had cast would have corrected these unjust treatments you have all endured (SIX MONTHS INTO THE NEW ADMINISTRATION). I fear however that we have been hoodwinked and it is again business as usual in Stratford. Again, my humble apologies. I hope the majority of voters learned a valuable lesson, I know I did.

  61. 61 omeara128

    Rex,

    I appreciate it. People must know that these are the types of investigations that Chief John Buturla conducts. Do you think its odd that he would contact the Western District Major Crime of the State Police for a posting on this site “WORDPRESS” for a picture of the Ex Deputy Chiefs car stating it was UNREGISTERED. The page is still up so it must have been a major crime to conduct an investigation and apply for an arrest warrant for me.

    Chief Buturla states that I was the sole focus of the investigation and there was no other cops being investigated. The alleged crime was ” COMPUTER CRIME”, but I find this funny as to when this alleged compuer crime occured I was not at the Police Dept for over 1 year and did not access any Stratford Computer, SO LETS RELEASE THE REPORTS SO WE CAN SEE THE WHOLE TRUTH as we know we cant go on the CHIEFS word.

  62. 62 rex525

    There is a phrase that describes this type of activity, it is called “abuse of power” and the public need to demand an explaination as to why it STILL continues. RESTORE THE PRIDE???? Not even an apparent attempt, but then again “this IS Stratford”.

  63. 63 rex525

    Officer O’Meara, for years I have worked in the city, and despite Guliani’s (many) faults he did more in his first six months as Mayor (in a city with 1000 fold our problems and bureaucracy) than this town has accomplished in the past six decades. The reason for his successes were LEADERSHIP and having a strong PERSONAL vision.

    When I get off the train from work, I occassionally like to unwind at one of the more popular watering holes in town (frequented by our local politicos). I sit there and quietly listen, as I have for years. In the past I heard nothing with any depth or ingenuity, until the last election. I, like many bought into all of the rhetoric, but that is apparently all it was. Over the past six months the political conversations there have returned to “business as usual”, Stratford party politics at it’s finest. There seems to be no leadership and strong PERSONAL vision at the executive level. The Mayor doesn’t seem to run the show in Stratford presently, the political mob mentality does. Unless this changes there will be no “restoring of the pride”, but don’t hold your breath (Guliani didn’t feel he had to feed an army of hungry lawyers). Unfortunately it appears that you and your fellow employees are the meal. How else would you explain the total lack of action and the ludacris inflation of the town attorney budget? I sincerely wish you all good luck.

    For those allies of Officers O’Meara, Soto, Farmer, & McNeil you may
    want to check out QSCEND TECHNOLOGIES in Waterbury.

    They are privately held.

    I have seen police computer investigatory programs.

    Part of what was deleted from my computer was my data base from 2008.
    It included contact names of FBI and FBI Criminal Investigation e-mail address.

    Further, that e-mail address was deleted from my Yahoo Address Book.

    Further, an e-mail opinion from Esq. Burturla to Clerk Pawluk, several weeks
    prior was taken from my Yahoo Cloud e-mails amd from hers.
    Both she and Tim Bishop sent acknowleding e-mails that it had existed.

    So – Officer O’Meara – the STATE POLICE who hold back information from
    you are the same Organization John Burturla headed related to Homeland
    Security, under Lieberman.

    They work with the FBI & JUSTICE Departments.

    Bridgeport FBI from the 1980s ACTIVELY worked with USPS and other
    Federal Agenices, like the justice Department who I also contacted
    from the late 1980s and the CIA + DOD (+ SIS)
    I contacted in early DOD in late 1980s & CIA in early 1990s.

    There are people in our government who ar murderers and traitors.
    Then there are the majority … who are believers ..

    Yes, it is ironic the Chief John Buturla while with the State Police was in charge of the Western District Major Crime and tis is the same unit he reaches out to for my investigation….Conflict of Interest?????

  67. 67 omeara128

    So Chief Buturla at roll call tells the patrolman, DiLauri,Luciano and Fressola that they did nothing wrong with running the Ex Deputys License plate because the ex deputys personal car was parked in the Chiefs spot and this vehicle was unknown to these officers.

    So, I was not at the police dept at the time this occured, I did not take the picture of the ex deputys car, I did not place the picture on the internet to a public domain BUT YET I WAS INVESTIGATED AND A WARRANT WAS APPLIED FOR ME. SHOW ME WHAT THE ALLEGATIONS I DID WERE ILLEGAL. SHOW THE REPORTS, SHOW THE POLICE DEPT THAT IT WAS ME THAT WAS THE SOLE FOCUS OF THE ARREST.

    I FIND THIS IMPOSSIBLE THAT I WAS THE SOLE FOCUS THE INVESTIGATION AND THE ONLY ONE NAMED ON THE ARREST WARRANT APPLICATION ESPECIALLY OF ALLEGATIONS OF COMPUTER CRIME. SHOW THE REPORT

    Doug- Can you file a harassment charge against the investigators? Maybe you will receive a copy during the discovery…otherwise if the foia commission doesn’t co -operate or agree looks like you are s.h.o.l. Ask your attorney they should know, right???????????

  69. 69 omeara128

    Phin,

    I have my attorneys working on it, I just beleive I have a right to know what the allegations against me were, , the statements, etc. My personal computer email accoutant was accessed as they got an ex parte order for the records. My personal email contained personal emails from people, family as well as Attorneys.

  70. 70 1george1

    Doug,

    By accessing your computer information, they gain biographic information
    which they can use against you.

    Berchem firm arranged for me to be deposed, in presence of Esq. Williams
    rep. I had a tape recorder. They claimed I couldnot tape record.

    I conditionally accepted situation, which was in deposition transcript.
    They falsified the deposition anyway.
    Esq. Williams betrayed me to Federal court, and used former Bridgeport
    city attorney’s nephew in my case, which I found out 2 days after trial.
    I had to try to go PRO SE.

    They used the deposition to SCRIPT their Civil case defense for Mossman,
    where I wanted Mossman alone to be sued personally.
    Esq Williams sued LoSciavo, Evans, and Capossi, with Mossman in their
    official capacities, which allowed the Town to Pay for the Case.

    One LoSchiavo, Evans, and Capossi appeared in uniform during jury selection,
    it poisoned the Jury pool, especially, when:
    Williams firm allowed claims against all but mossman dropped
    LoSciavo Testified
    Barnhart Testified

    I tried to go PRO SE
    Holcolm and my Attorney closed my case

    While the ABOVE is about me – there are tactics you, McNeil, Soto, Farmer
    may recognize?

    In your case and theirs, why would they target each of you?

    Why are each of you a danger to them?

    Why would they need to create a criminal situation and then frame you?
    Each of you?

    I do not have copies of the plans, however we are hearing there are plans
    to move residents of Bridgeport’s East end into Stratford Districts
    2, 4, and 5, where there are OLDER HOUSING perfect for new ZONING for
    higher density “affordable housing.”
    In the Economic Community Development map legends,that is high minority
    population

    By expanding the Airport, increased Jet noice / traffic / pollution along
    with increased worker / condo / business density on AVCO + pollution
    will destroy property values in Distrcits 1 + 3.
    District 3 has gained substancial hispanic growth and property values are
    extremely vulnerable to RAYMARK DUMPSITES + GROUND WATER.
    District 6 borders RAYMARK and is targeted for dibilitation.

    Rumor is BERCHEM / OTHER FIRMS look to cash in on much greater potential
    revenue building up Bridgeport while debilitating Stratford, whereas Bridgeport
    intent to oursource Poperty Value retardents to Stratford by:

    increasing CAPITAL DEBT
    increasing PENSION OBLIGATIONS;
    decreasing REVENUES like UNFUNDED MANDATES
    avoiding containment of cost and cost avoidance
    stagnating ECONOMIC GROWTH – Tax Base
    calculated unequalized Tax burdens at rotating Targets
    perpetuating ENVIRONMENTAL TOXIN issues driving down property values
    expanding AIRPORT
    delaying SHAKESPEARE
    I – 95 Bridge / # 33 Ramp issues, related to groundwater / traffick / noise
    / air pollution

    Reason so many people in Board of Education and Town Government are
    living out of Town and being brought into Stratford from the outside is
    THEY PAY NO PROPERTY TAX
    THEY HAVE NO INVESTMENT IN STRATFORD
    THEY HAVE NO FAMILY or LOYALTY to STRATFORD
    MANY SUPERFICIAL INVESTMENTS pertain to CASHING OUT – moving
    MANY SUPERFICIAL ZONING CHANGES forebode “massive affordable housing”
    along the Bridgeport Border, including forcing out Stoney Brook long term
    residence with targeted taxation inflation to gain the property for devloper.

    The 630 Condo’s with NO ELEVATOR on Lordship Boulevard was TRIAL BALLOON

    You work under the assumption the Constitution has meaning to

    In the STATE OF CT 2010, if you are investigated, your email account accessed, statements written, an arrest warrant applied for you but denied by the States Attorney, all these things but your not allowed to know what the allegations against you were.

  74. 74 1george1

    I know the feeling.
    At least your relatives were not dying almost every time you made a legal appeal.

    Investigation started by Loschiavo and Chief Buturla in Nov 2008.

    Chief Buturla forwards investigation to the Western District Major Crime in Dec 2008

    I was contacted by a Sgt. Tarra of the Western District Major Crime of the State Police on March 8, 2009 and stated I was the subject of a computer crime within the Stratford Pd.

    State Police Sgt. Tarra does an ex-parte order for my AOL account and for my computer.

    Warrant done for my arrest in May 09 and denied by States Attorney Benedict.

    Dec 09, FOI to State Police to get reports.

    Feb 21,2010, State Police Major Crime state this is when they closed the case on the investigation.

    Since Dec 09 I have been trying to get the police reports from State Police and have been denied.

  78. 78 1george1

    Doug,

    Contract the FOI commission to find parameters and document
    the information you get from them + contact person.

    File and document a FOI request, with a reasonable timeline,
    for what you request.

    When / if they fail to deliver, file an FOI complaint, copy the
    press, copy the CCLU + ALCU, copy Attorney General, copy
    chief CT. State Attorney, copy U. S. Attorney.

    Give each an individual request for acknowledgement and time
    for same.

    If they violate laws, you have documentation to take to your union
    and ask your union rep to file a grievance and ask if they feel their
    attorneys feel a civil law suit is appropriate?

    I know Jeze is a supporter and I suspect Jeze or others have scanners?

    Scan your documents and/or create a video.
    Somebody should be able to figure out how to help you.

    Meanwhile the bad guys were successful in wiping a lot of info from
    my computers which are still not secure.

    The entire system of place I can turn, as an individual are limited.

  79. 79 omeara128

    George, thanks…

    But, I have done all you said MONTHS ago…..Still Nothing……..

  80. 80 jezebel282

    Update:

    It seems that among the one hundred members of Local 407 there is so little respect and credibility for John Buturla you need a microscope and plenty of time to find it. Talk to anyone in uniform in Stratford. It really doesn’t matter which department. Mention the name “Buturla” and the smile disappears and is replaced with a stony look and the words “no comment”.

    But John Buturla has come up with a solution!

    Every officer (you know, the ones that have to work?) must salute anyone who has the rank of lieutenant or above on sight. Really. No kidding. That’s his answer.

    As a citizen, my answer to Buturla is: Salute THIS!

    Leave our cops alone, willya? Haven’t you done enough yet? Why don’t you just LEAVE and find something else to corrupt?

    (If you are hoping that John Harkins will do anything, you’d be better off trying to levitate.)

  81. 81 mikereynolds

    I’m no fan of the chief but I certainly don’t have problem with saluting.

    Must be because I’m a veteran.

  82. 82 jezebel282

    Mike,

    “don’t have problem with saluting.”

    There is a distinct difference between 200+ years of military tradition and a martinet imposing a false sense of respect.

  83. 83 omeara128

    UPDATE……………….

    I had an FOI hearing months ago in order to obtain the police reports from the CT STATE POLICE of this misled and false investigation against me. A briefing was done and submitted to the FOI COMMISSION for consideration as to why I want and deserve copies of this POLICE REPORT. After reviewing the briefing the FOI COMMISSION ordered the LEGAL AFFAIRS UNIT OF THE CT STATE POLICE to submit all documents/police reports associated with this case for an in “CAMERA REVIEW” to determine wether and what documents could and would be released. These documents were to be hand delievered to the FOI COMMISSION on or before JUNE 9, 2010. GUESS WHAT PEOPLE, THE STATE POLICE FAILED TO COMPLY WITH THE ORDER. Heres a response I received from the FOI COMMISSION…………

    Dear Mr. O’Meara,

    I checked with the Attorney Daniels, who was assigned to assist the hearing officer at your hearing, regarding the status of this matter. He said an order was issued to the respondents to submit in camera records to the Commission by June 9th, but that the respondents failed to comply with the order. That’s all I know for know but I will keep you posted. I will say that a failure to comply with an order to submit records like this is very unusual.

  84. 84 jezebel282

    Omeara,

    “failure to comply with an order to submit records like this is very unusual.”

    “unusual”? Wouldn’t that be called a “crime”? Or maybe at least “contempt”?

    Do you think the Buturla boys have that much influence? It appears so. Maybe that’s why Harkins is afraid of them.

  85. 85 omeara128

    Jez,

    Heres the Ct State Police, the dept that enforces laws

    Heres the AG Office, the dept who is supposed investigate and protect citizens from wrong doing..

    If these 2 agencies cant abide by orders then there is something seriously wrong………….

  86. 86 jezebel282

    Yeah, but what cops do you call to arrest the cops?

  87. 87 omeara128

    Jez,

    The Commission reminds the respondent that failure to comply with a Commission order is a class B misdemeanor under §1-21k, G.S.

  88. 88 jezebel282

    OK…so who arrests state troopers and attorneys?

    The Army?

  89. 89 omeara128

    Sec. 1-240. (Formerly Sec. 1-21k). Penalties. (a) Any person who wilfully, knowingly and with intent to do so, destroys, mutilates or otherwise disposes of any public record without the approval required under section 1-18 or unless pursuant to chapter 47 or 87l, or who alters any public record, shall be guilty of a class A misdemeanor and each such occurrence shall constitute a separate offense.

    (b) Any member of any public agency who fails to comply with an order of the Freedom of Information Commission shall be guilty of a class B misdemeanor and each occurrence of failure to comply with such order shall constitute a separate offense.

    Omeara,

    “I mean we all know that Buturla likes arresting cops”

    Cops are just his favorite. He also likes anyone to arrest anyone who exposes him, anyone who disagrees with him or anyone who’s arrest might curry favor.

    Remember the Matthew Reut (the Hedge Trimmer?). Neidermeier called Miron who called Buturla and 10 minutes later, poor Mr Reut was arrested for malicious hedge trimming.

    Or there was the time when Buturla was on a rant and said “I want Weizel arrested! I don’t care what you arrest him for!”

    And this guy still “leads” 100+ of our Finest.

    Ron,

    “What were the circumstances surrounding Mr.Weizel leaving the Ct. Post?”

    As far as I know, strictly financial. It’s not like newspapers are doing well. If you still work for the CT Post, it helps to be single and still living with your parents.

    They have just about abandoned reporting about anything in Stratford any more.

  95. 95 1george1

    Weisel: Rumors were there were domestic issues in the courts,
    from 2 sources, which were ongoing and I heard about months
    prior to job release.

    Rich needed Healthcare from job for family.

    Sylvia thought Rich was greatest reporter ever.
    I disagreed.
    I did confirm, Rich was heavily editted and CT. POST has agenda,

    There is a 30 day window for the BIDDER to PAY UP = end July.

    Economic Development commission was told several months ago
    about the June 29 date, drop dead date related to AVCO SAEP

    there should be new ARMY conversations starting early Aug: AVCO

    Person in charge of AVCO is William Birney, Undersecretary of the

    Update:

    FOI deadline missed as former cop seeks answers

    Written by John Kovach
    Thursday, 15 July 2010 11:19

    Retired Stratford Police Officer Douglas O’Meara wants to know what the state police wanted to know about him.

    But despite an order from the Freedom of Information Commission, those details have not been forthcoming.

    The Department of Public Safety missed a June 9 deadline to deliver copies of reports from an investigation to the Freedom of Information Commission for its review.

    O’Meara, who was off the job due to an injury from October 2007 until his retirement in January 2009, was a target of a probe into the posting of a photo of a car owned by the family of now-retired Deputy Chief Joseph LoSchiavo on a blog. O’Meara denies he posted the photo, but said he did post a comment that appeared under it using his blog nickname.

    O’Meara filed the FOI request when investigators would not give him documents.

    “They reached a stage where they decided they needed to look at the records,” said Thomas Hennick, public education officer for the Freedom of Information Commission. “They ordered DPS to come up with the records.”

    Hennick said a second order from the commission, with a very short window of time in which to comply, would routinely follow.

    “If they don’t, the commission will either write the report without the records, or they could take them to court for failure to comply. I think that’s a far-fetched possibility,” Hennick said.

    Absent a review, no report has been written regarding O’Meara’s request for the materials.

    “Usually people comply,” Hennick said.

    Warrant rejected

    The incident began when LoSchiavo parked a car registered in a family member’s name in a spot reserved for the chief of police over the weekend of Oct. 28, 2008. A new officer, seeing the unfamiliar car in a reserved space, ran the plate and reportedly found that the Department of Motor Vehicles listed the car as unregistered.

    Word then spread throughout the department about whose car it was, and about the registration question. Over that weekend, at least two other officers also ran the plate.

    Denying that the car was unregistered, LoSchiavo filed a complaint with Stratford Police Chief John Buturla. He wrote he parked the car while away over the weekend of Oct. 28, 2008. He wrote that the car had failed an emissions test Oct. 23, 2008, that it was fixed Oct. 28, within the 30-day window, and that his wife had mailed the registration renewal to the Department of Motor Vehicles.

    “My car has never been unregistered …” LoSchiavo wrote in a complaint dated Nov. 18, 2008.

    LoSchiavo wrote that in several photos the 2010 date is visible in the window sticker. The car is pulled forward into the spot, and the photo posted on the blog shows the rear window.

    “The information on COLLECT [the records system accessed by police] was incorrect due to the state’s data entry procedure and the inherent built-in lag time,” LoSchiavo wrote to Buturla.

    LoSchiavo, told by another officer on Oct. 29, 2008, that an officer was telling others his car was unregistered, ran the plate to see if it had been checked. When three instances were found, LoSchiavo contacted a retired officer to determine who ran the plate.

    O’Meara is not one of the three officers listed in LoSchiavo’s complaint as having accessed his vehicle records from a portable terminal.

    On Nov. 20, 2008, Buturla contacted Col. Thomas Davoren of the state police asking for assistance in investigating “a possible criminal violation.”

    Buturla’s complaint did not make reference to LoSchiavo’s car being parked in a space marked “reserved” and said the car was registered.

    On Dec. 8, 2008, Buturla gave consent for state police to search records at Stratford Police headquarters.

    Buturla said Monday that the investigation was conducted by state police and any comment should originate there. He said there was no local investigation, and therefore no local case number.

    “We did not do an internal investigation into the matter,” Buturla said.

    No disciplinary action was taken against the officers who ran the plate.

    “Merely running the plate is not an issue, and it was not an issue for me based on the circumstances,” Buturla said. “COLLECT has specific rules regarding information,” and prohibits it being made public.

    Later that December, the state police Western District Major Crime Squad sought Internet records for “Bollicks,” the screen name used by O’Meara, on the blog stratfordcharter.wordpress.com. It also sought AOL records traced to that user, O’Meara.

    O’Meara said he and his girlfriend were surprised by state police who arrived to seize his computer and would not tell him why they were searching. His former wife’s computer was also taken into custody.

    O’Meara said he wondered if private e-mails, even privileged discussions with attorneys, might have been compromised.

    Jonathan Benedict, then state’s attorney, rejected an arrest warrant application in a memo to state police on May 6, 2009. Buturla was copied on Benedict’s decision.

    Benedict said police officers acted within their authority when they checked the plate, thus negating a charge of third-degree computer crime.

    Saying the car was parked in an unauthorized space on police property, officers were acting within their authority “whatever the private interests” of those officers were.

    “While it is unclear which individual actually disseminated the registration status of the automobile, this would appear to be unrestricted information,” Benedict wrote.

    The statute that covers dissemination of personal information from motor vehicle records “specifically exempts ‘information relative to the status of … registration …’” Benedict wrote in declining to pursue an arrest warrant.

    That section of the statute cited by Benedict reads: “‘Personal information’ means information that identifies an individual and includes an individual’s photograph or computerized image, Social Security number, operator’s license number, name, address other than the ZIP code, telephone number, or medical or disability information, but does not include information on motor vehicle accidents or violations, or information relative to the status of an operator’s license, registration or insurance coverage.”

    Lt. J. Paul Vance, of the public information office for state police, referred requests for comment to the legal affairs department.

    That department asked for any request in writing, and did not reply by press time.

    In addition to pursuing his case through the Freedom of Information Commission, O’Meara continued to seek action from the town.

    Chief Administrative Officer Geen Thazhampallath, who joined the Town Hall staff in March, wrote in an April 14 memo to O’Meara that the “alleged incident” was “properly referred to the state’s attorney’s office and the state police” by Buturla.

    Since those entities closed their investigations, “further town disciplinary actions or investigation is unwarranted.”

    Thazhampallath also wrote that the records requested by O’Meara, “as public records,” can be obtained from state police.

    Editor’s note:

    Not a single official, not one, not ever, contacted the editor about said picture. In fact, not a single individual EVER asked how the picture was obtained.

  104. 104 1george1

    “My car has never been unregistered …”
    LoSchiavo wrote in a complaint dated Nov. 18, 2008.

    MY BIRTHDATE!

  105. 105 1george1

    I believe this is called “CHILLING”

    Later that December, the state police Western District Major Crime Squad
    sought Internet records for “Bollicks,” the screen name used by O’Meara,
    on the blog stratfordcharter.wordpress.com.
    It also sought AOL records traced to that user, O’Meara.

    O’Meara said he and his girlfriend were surprised by state police who arrived
    to seize his computer and would not tell him why they were searching.
    His former wife’s computer was also taken into custody.

    O’Meara said he wondered if private e-mails, even privileged discussions with attorneys, might have been compromised.

    Coincidence?

    “MY BIRTHDATE!”

    Coincidence? I think not. Obviously George is conspiring with….somebody.

  107. 107 1george1

    Past experience is Mirons / Burturlas / Handlers use parallel situations
    to pretend to address certain issues.

    – Ethics complaint vs. Fredette, repped by Proto, related to Pensions.
    Complaint was created by ally / friend of Calzone / Gavin.

    – Ethics Commission found no wrong doing.
    Paid Proto and attorney for other side.

    – Fredette / Proto counter complaint vs. Burturla related to Pensions.
    Burturla was scared stiff. His entire family was present for support.

    – Ethics Commission found no wrong doing.
    Paid Proto and attorney for other side.

    – At the same time ETHICS COMMISSION stomped on my 7 complaints
    against Dick Miron / Burturla.

    None of the ETHICS COMPLAINTS were against the right people or the
    right issues.

    I believe the tactic is admitting sins, while committing massive crimes!

    The most interesting part of the story is that it mentions this blog
    Stratfordcharter.wordpress.com/

    I have tried to keep my comments strictly about political situations
    and not have personal attacks, unlike many bloggers.

    Political commentary is normally a protected first amendment activity.

    My experience with the Stratford Political Parties, Town Councils and
    their Appointees, including Managers and Department Heads and the
    Board of Education, and the Town Committees has been a willingness
    to falsify evidence, which is documented in the press, mostly by me!

    REVISED TOWN CHARTER = TWICE
    PENSION ISSUES non transparent
    COUNCIL other MEETINGS, capable of being EDITED
    FINANCIAL ADVISORY COMMISSION report challenged
    Court tampering
    Tampering with hiring / promotions.
    LoSchiavo Mess – (Stratford Police get credit)
    Tombstone Mess – (Bridgeport politics/police get credit ???)
    AIRPORT betrayals
    SHAKESPEARE DELAYS
    AVCO DELAYS

    TACTICALLY and STRATEGICALLY, it was always better for me to POST
    on someone else’s blog, where I can NOT control EDITTING than on my
    OWN BLOG.

    To my knowledge, neither I nor anyone on this blog advocated any
    violations of the law.

    Any claims of violations of the LAW, on this blog, would be highly
    suspect of the Burturla / Miron factions using political connections
    to manipulate and/or plan FACTS or CIRCUMSTANCES.

    All of my CONSPIRACY theories were supportive of the CONSTITUTION,
    and LEGAL LAWS and REGULATIONS of the UNITED STATES and have
    been aimed at PEACEFUL changes to compliance of purviews!

    NEVER advocated Violence
    NEVER advocated Illegal activity
    ALWAYS tried to post verifieable when posting as facts.
    ADMITTED I sometimes teased or fished for information.
    OPEN counter posted my opinion or beliefs, normally politically based
    ALWAYS believed this BLOG could be used for ENTRAPMENT such as
    “appears’ to happen with “bollicks”
    This blog is about StratfordCharter – A POLITICAL VENUE and with GOOD
    FAITH, I believe is a 1st Amendment PROTECTED entity, when writing
    about POLITICALLY related people / actions

  108. 108 jezebel282

    Obviously, there is a bit of animosity between Buturla/Loschiavo and Doug O’Meara.

    However, it is an extreme example of a lack of ethics to use taxpayers’ money and the offices of the State to extract revenge. O’Meara is the third Stratford officer to be persecuted by Buturla.

    And yet, it is an almost certain conclusion that John Harkins will do nothing at all to reign him in. No matter what.

  109. 109 1george1

    Obviously George is conspiring with….somebody.

    Just because some people give me information,
    does that make us conspirators or accessories?

    JEZE How much have I learned from you?

    We are members of a same blog?

    Is that the same as being members of the R or RTC or D or DTC?
    I think not.
    We trade ragging more often than we trade compliments.
    We both would like honest government in Stratford.
    We both agree there are good and bad within the above.
    We don’t always agree on good guys … 😉
    We do agree on certain bad guys (politically)

    I occasionally use the term conspiracy, mostly mockingly.
    More often people place it towards my view that some people
    are working towards what I believe are pernicious efforts.
    (politically and otherwise)

  110. 110 1george1

    farmer, mcneil, soto, o’meara = 4

    O’Meara is the third Stratford officer to be persecuted by Buturla.

    I guess I can not count?
    And I thought there were even more …. 😦

  111. 111 jezebel282

    George,

    Shawn Farmer left the SPD before the spit hit the fan.

    And I am not counting the usual IA investigations that SPD officers are subjected to on a regular basis.

  112. 112 1george1

    The article about O’Meara was HUGE.

    Police can get in trouble by going public with information.
    However knowledgeable Public can write letters to editor about
    John Burturla as police chief
    Any town attorneys
    Harkins / mini Jimmi
    others

  113. 113 omeara128

    Bottom line they lied in their statements. How could I be arrested for a computer crime when I never accessed information. Buturla says I was the only focus of the investigation at roll call to the men and women of the PD. REALLY CHIEF….

    § 5.2.5 Subordination of Directors.
    The directors of departments shall be immediately responsible to the Mayor for the administration of their departments and their advice in writing may be required by the Mayor on all matters affecting their departments. They shall prepare estimates, which shall be open to public inspection, and they shall make all other reports and recommendations concerning their departments at stated intervals or when requested by the Mayor. In the event of a vacancy in any subordinate office as provided by this Charter the directors within their respective departments may exercise the powers and duties of such subordinate offices.

    § 5.2.6 Removal from Office of Directors.
    A director may be removed by the Mayor at any time and is considered an “at will” employee unless superseded by contract or law.

    It is clearly up to a mayor to direct and control Department Directors.

    UPDATE>>>

    FOI COMMISSION====Dated Letter JULY 12, 2010

    Placed a second order of notice for an in camera review of the documents/reports associated with the Western District Major Crime of The CT State Police Investigation, these documents must hand delivered on or before JULY 26, 2010 to the FOI COMMISSION

    I guess there was no penalty for failure to comply with the first order that was supposed to be delievered by June 9, 2010..

  121. 121 jezebel282

    Doug,

    “Placed a second order of notice”

    This failure would only be strike two wouldn’t it? Do you need three strikes before someone actually does something?

  122. 122 phineast

    Jez- In post #119 “unless it is superseded by …law. Connecticut State Statute falls under that category-the police chief is afforded a certain amount of protection from firing-hence the reason for Imbro receiving an escalator clause. It is in place to supposedly protect law enforcement from “politics’-Stratford’s current situation is a clear demonstration of a flaw in the law…………So while the Chief may “have ” to report to the Mayor the mayor is hamstringed in this particular case as the Chief’s bro is salivating over the possibility of more billable hours if his bro is fired by the mayor-it is sick, twisted but sadly a truth that has a huge impact on the taxpayers.

  123. 123 jezebel282

    Phin,

    “the mayor is hamstringed”

    Perhaps. But that doesn’t mean the mayor has to make Buturla comfortable. I can think of hundreds of ways to make a subordinate miserable in their job. In fact, between Ron Ing and Adam Bauer I’m sure there are dozens of ways to make that happen.

    Simple things like making him come to work every day. Reviewing (and countermanding) all disciplinary actions, suspending McNeil & Soto with pay, taking away his his vehicle and replacing it with a Smart Car or Town pick up truck. And that is only 30 seconds of thinking about it.

  124. 124 mayor2013

    Can somebody post a copy of Chief Buturla’s contract. It has to be public record somewhere at town hall. Either at the Mayor’s or HR department. It has to be available to the public – let’s see what is in it that makes it so “iron-clad.”

  125. 125 omeara128

    Jez,

    As far as I read, if you fail to comply with an FOI Order its a Class B Misdeameanor and every additional non compliance is an added charge of a Class B Misdeameanor

  126. 126 phineast

    2013- Last I knew it was on the union web site, I don’t know if it is still there. Buturla does NOT have a contract, it is called something different….
    Jez- I am in total agreement with you regarding making things “challenging” for JB-making him perform his duties on a daily basis and the SUV turning into a smart car is an excellent starting point. Neither of those can be construed as a form of harassment-it is actually part of the job description and acting with fiduciary responsibility with in the scope of the budget. Seems reasonable…now we need someone with a big set to act on it. The rescinding of disciplinary issues is a legal matter and the mayor and his staff have to be careful not to create an even bigger burden than Miron created. Do I believe Miron was wrong???? I can’t think of a time when he was right.
    Being fiscally responsible and making a director actually do their job??…nothing wrong with that.

    “must be a full moon”

    It’s very clear. Having been born and then having relatives, friends, associates, acquaintances makes you suspect and obviously a part of the greater conspiracy.

    Update:

    Today is the SECOND deadline given to the CT State Police to fork over the documentation related to the investigation of Doug O’Meara.

    Anyone know what the under/over is?

  133. 133 jezebel282

    Background:

    Just as a reminder, this entire persecution of Officer O’Meara began over illegally parking a private vehicle in a clearly marked reserved parking space:

    https://stratfordcharter.wordpress.com/2008/10/09/the-loschiavos-take-a-bow-and-your-wallet/

    Not only were the resources of the Stratford PD involved, but the Office of the Western District Major Crime Unit of the Connecticut State Police. And now, the Freedom of Information Commission.

    The only two facts of this case are incontrovertible:

    1. Officer O’Meara was not within 30 miles of the Stratford PD on the dates in question.
    2. The picture was NOT received from Officer O’Meara.

    So…why the “investigation”? Perhaps the documentation due today will answer that?

  134. 134 1george1

    Don’t werewolves come out in full moons?

    I used incontrovertible related to girl with cancer.

    O’meara, maybe your lawyer should file papers of of intent to sue on the grounds of harassment-to the state pd, and the fools that forwarded the bogus case to the state. Maybe the lawyer should file charges-yes criminal charges-on the same individuals. If they can go after Mcneil and soto for computer crimes for documents that they were authorized to access just imagine what charges a good attorney can file for in your case…….starting with violation of hippa in changing your status from IOD to sick. Hello-those are federal charges…..aren’t they? Isn’t hippa a federal law???? Seems to me that is the start point…then you move on to the harassment….there is no question that you are being harassed.

  142. 142 jezebel282

    Doug,

    I really don’t know how this could be posted on The Department of Public Safety’s website:

    Professionalism through an elite and diverse team of trained men and women.
    Respect for ourselves and others through our words and actions.
    Integrity through adherence to standards and values that foster public trust.
    Dedication to service.
    Equality through fair and unprejudiced application of the law.

    Maybe someone can email this guy and ask him why they will not comply with a legal order…twice.

    Commissioner James M. Thomas (860) 256-0800 james.thomas@po.state.ct.us

  143. 143 1george1

    Doug,

    Wasn’t it true that you were injured on the job, while covering
    a shift for Justin LoSchiavo?

    I suspect the Stratford Star would appreciate the update on the
    FOI failure and both the Star and the citizenry tax payers should
    consider it germane that you were injured related to “Justin.”

    Many people have seen the Justin situation as an outrage and they
    pin it to Mirons and Burturlas.

    The general population are more familiar with the Mirons.
    The Burturlas and their political connections are less known.
    I suspect this helps your sympathy and credibility factors

    Stratford residents are unhappy with Taxes, so they might be less
    inclined to support Norko and McCauley vs. you.
    However tread carefully on disability pension if mentioned?

    With Winterbottom now working for Bridgeport and all the ways
    Bridgeport and Berchem / Willinger / CT POST appear to favor
    Bridgeport over Stratford.

    However tread carefully on disability pension.
    You can expect reprisals and snooping.
    Reprisals could help in a personal law suit.

    However if Snooping turns up embarassments, they are likely to use.

    Good Luck

    And if supporters of McNeil, Soto, and Farmer choose to write to raise
    questions….
    End of July is when AVCO decison / money is germane.
    End of July is when Dick Miron is likely to make money news.

    Rumor is that f Jim Raises $ 15,000 he will get $ 75,000 PUBLIC FUNDS
    and hire DICK MIRON as CONSULTANT.

    I told Kevin Kelly, I was more likely to vote for JIM MIRON than KELLY,
    because JIM is less hypocritical (more delusional)

    The same way ASHCROFT lost an election to a dead guy, it is unlikely
    JIM MIRON could get elected dog catcher.
    On a straight up election Jim or Me, I actually might WIN!

    If I was elected Mayor, Congress, Senate, or President I would serve
    to actually try to help people, while being paid w benefits.
    > At least I would be trying to help the average people instead of
    sabotaging things to line pockets of the rich w no self respect!
    > Realistically, COULD I DO ANY WORSE than ANY OF THEM?

    I have ZERO delusions about being elected to anything!

    But if I were KING, there would be no vengeance / reprisals.
    However there would be changes in personnel and policy.
    People do not have to be hurt or fired to effect changes!

    I know there are NO KINGS.
    Someone tell that to the Mirons / Mario Testas fiends, er friends

  144. 144 omeara128

    George,

    Snooping, they can do all the snooping they want, they certainly arent paying my bills which havent changed since my disability. Bottom line I was hurt in the line of duty, Loschiavo, Buturla and the administration changed my injury from IOD to sick time, thats the facts. Buturla allowed an officer who fought a felon on the street and got hurt to be treated this way.

    George, do you know they have been shorting my pension for the last 1.5 years of $350 a month.

    George, Did you know that workmans comp Commission, Town Attorney agreed that anytime I was out of work it was Injury On Duty which would effect my w-2’s which were agreed upon to be amended, that was back in June 09. Did you know I tried to fix these with the Harkins Administration but got the run around. Everything I have done, I have tried to go the right way and right channels but now I will just leave things up to my attorney. It appears to me thats the way they like it, Give it to the attorneys to handle.

  145. 145 1george1

    Doug,

    I attended Pension Meetings.
    I knew they were giving you the run around and bleeding you financially.
    The Republicans on the Town Council + Gavin, either spoke up for you,
    as did Murray and a couple of Union reps, or they pretended.
    – Burturla, Winterbottom, Norko were obduriate.
    – They worked for Miron and with Mr/Mrs. L.
    – All of them take orders from State and National committees or gov.
    – Bottom Line, Republicans on the Council + Gavin + Union reps were
    of no help.

    They did the same things to me when I worked for the USPS.

    Many things Mirons / Burturlas did mirrored the USPS m. o.
    That is why I believe you.

    The question is why?
    One answer is if you exercized your appeal rights and they wanted to
    chill (intimidate) you, as an example to others.

    Another is there are people who like to reify random people to be their
    modern “book of job” where they take as much as they can away.
    – It is nt consistent with Masons I have known.
    – It appears part of a political / police / military rite (group)

    Another reason is you were covering for J L when you got hurt and it
    simply made people look bad.

    Another reason is just because they can.
    There are people who just like screwin with people.
    They make it their mission to make your life miserable.
    Once you have been targeted, they come at you like a sniper,
    where they pick their spots and do things only YOU can relate
    to seeing what they are doing = form psychological warfare!

    If your lawyer is not related to you, beware of the possibilty you will
    be sold out, like I was.

    They have many connections among politicians, lawyers, judges, and
    government officials.
    > You pay outta your pocket.
    > They simply send a bill to the town.

    They do not like publicity.
    They like to try to isolate someone.
    Like most bully lawyers, they are cowards who like to gang up.

    Their word and promises are worthless.
    They enjoy lying and hurting.

  146. 146 1george1

    They did the same things to me when I worked for the USPS.

    Clarification:
    I worked in Southport, which is part of Fairfield.
    Jackie Durrell was 1st Select person back then.
    She hired Jon Best to work on the Fire Dept.

    My father (WW II Combat Vet) was hired in mid-late 1960s by USPO,
    Fairfield, with the help of Congressman Stewart McKinney.

    My father talked me into taking USPS test in early 1971.
    I was hired 9/71.

    I forget when fairfield went on Wildcat strike for pay. (1970)
    We were making under $ 2.40 hour = good money then.

    They used the fact my dad was union steward to torment him to the
    point he blamed the Fairfield Post Master Dick Parks.
    Parks went to confession / communion daily.
    Our family thought my dad was crazy, like many of the bloggers view me.
    Later I learned the HIGHER PEOPLE used PARKS + MY DAD, like they would
    place Jewish / Italian / Irish managers to torment me.

    DOUG – My experience supports the garbage done to you.

    Some of the locals enjoy hurting people and are protected by higher ups!
    Some locals are physically sick over stuff they HAVE to do, or they’re next.

  147. 147 1george1

    They made sure I knew the term SCHADENFREUDE.
    I already knew SADISM.

    They also taught me the word to REIFY or REIFICATION.
    They also taught me it applied to a perversion of the Book of Job,
    where people like the KKK like to kill people, keep them poor,
    and take everything away from people except SPES.

    People will look at you and smile a sick smile as if they know
    something about you, while they pretend to help you or to
    comfort you.

    People will pretend to befriend you, to spy on you and report to
    their demented controllers.

    Counterintuitively the “masters” are “slaves.”

    UPDATE……

    My attorney called this morning and it has been confirmed, the AG Office/State Police have failed to comply with the second order from the FOI CoMMission.

  149. 149 omeara128

    I find this comical to say the least. My attorney confirmed that they failed to comply to the second order, that the deadline was Monday July 26th, he confirmed this via telephone to the FOI Commission this morning. I then emailed an attorney whom I dealt with at Governor Rells office about the AG Office and State Police not complying to the second order, me knowing they failed to comply I wanted to see what she would offer, this was her response…..

    Dear Mr. O’Meara,

    I have checked into this matter and learned that the Attorney General’s Office seems to be in compliance. The FOIC will continue with its statutory process and the administrative hearing officer will review the documents.

    While I can only imagine that this process from the beginning has been time-consuming and frustrating, the Freedom of Information Commission must follow procedures to allow both parties due process. In this instance, it appears that the agency has complied with the FOIC order. However, your attorney would be best positioned to offer any further legal options or recommendations.

    I wish you success as you navigate this FOIC process

    ARE THEY ALL LIARS, she would actually say to me they complied when I know they didnt, well I sent her not a very nice email in response to her LIE, she never responded

  150. 150 jezebel282

    Doug,

    “AG Office/State Police have failed to comply with the second order from the FOI CoMMission.”

    This is deeply disturbing. The Freedom of Information Act is a FEDERAL law. States don’t get to choose whether or not they’d like to comply. Not even Connecticut. Not the Attorney General (Really, Mr. Blumenthal? You want to be a Senator?), the Department of Public Safety nor the Connecticut State Police.

    Failing to comply once may be a “communication” error. Failing to comply twice is obstruction.

  151. 151 omeara128

    Jez,

    Its Pathetic, being on the other side and not in law enforcement anymore I see how the system is so corrupt and its true, its not what you know, its who you know.

    If they are going to this extreme over this, I can only imagine what goes on behind closed doors with the McNeil, Soto and Farmer case.

    This is something for the Editorial Pages of EVERY CT. NEWSPAPER
    and ELECTRONIC MEDIA.

    CT RADIO
    NEWSPAPERS
    Star + ALL hersham newspapers
    CT. Post + Registrar + ALL HERST
    Hartford + Manchester + Stamford + norwalk + Danbury + Waterbury.

    For the CT. State Police …. STATE POLICE to fail to comply to the LAW
    of a simple FOI case, not once but twice is HUGE NEWS.

    Then there is the REASONS for FAILURE to comply.
    discretion or abuse of discretion
    color of the law

    Seizing your computer by the STATE is HUGE, HUGE.

    Do you realize the affect on Business People and Government workers
    for POLITICAL SEIZING of a COMPUTER? HUGE!

    Then there is Stratford’s History?

    Then there is how you were treated and by whom?

    Then there is how and why you became injured to need to retire?

    I WOULD CONSULT YOUR ATTORNEY on how to convert electronic
    paper trail into documentation for the media.

    Who knows, he may later discover you may have R.I.C.O., WHISTLE
    BLOWER, and other PERSONAL VIOLATIONS of your Constitutional
    Rights?

    (I suspect it is part of ritualistic galvanizing and object lessons to others?)

    If I had not experienced similar situations, I likely would not care, simply
    because I could not identify with you and your situation.
    However, I was at PENSION BOARD MEETINGS and personally knew of many

    Loschaivos quotes

    As part of our investigation we went over to the
    dispatch center and asked Dispatcher Freer to run the plate to see if in fact it was
    accessed. COLLECT showed that it was run from our mobile data terminals at
    1928hrs, 1953hrs and 0146 hrs. lcontacted retired Detective Jack Crattyto see
    if we can tell who accessed the COLLECT system-

    Chief Buturla quotes

    Buturla said Monday that the investigation was conducted by state police and any comment should originate there. He said there was no local investigation, and therefore no local case number

    Chief Buturla, so there was no local investigation, but Loschiavo uses the words THROUGH OUR INVESTIGATION.

    Apprarently the Harkins Administration sees nothing wrong with Stratford Brass using and allowing retired detectives to investigate. It also allows Stratford Police to investigate alledged crimes without assigning a CASE NUMBER.

  158. 158 1george1

    Personal point of Reference:

    I had asked Mossman, Imbro, & Burturla to investigate a series of deaths.
    Mossman wound up setting me up with a false arrest.

    Imbro wanted me to bring another person to support my request.
    > Everyone I asked was too scared to investigate.
    > I had to limit who I asked.

    Burturla sent my request to the FBI. No action, until my home was
    broken into and my contact information to the FBI and other documents
    were deleted.

    Other police departments refuse to open a case.

  159. 159 jezebel282

    Update:

    This is the warrant obtained by Deputy Chief Joseph Loschiavo:

    Warrant

    As we already know and can see again from this arrant, Officer O’Meara did NOT take the picture, did not post the picture, did not provide the picture and did not provide any information about the picture. Here merely commented on the incident, which I believe is his Constitutional right. No one else was described in this warrant.

    On it’s face, my idea would be to federally charge ex Deputy Chief Loschiavo in a federal court for the violation of O’Meara’s civil rights.

  160. 160 1george1

    My interpretation of the Warrant is that it may be a legitimate means
    to trace the origin of the photo, which may have been electronically
    forwarded from one computer to another?

    However, did a crime exist?
    A photo of a car is not a crime.
    Using the police computer for personal use or other reasons, may be a crime?
    Is it a major crime?

    Seizing the computer seems way over the top, as a reaction.
    Is it evidence?
    If no incriminating evidence was found in a timely manner, I believe NOT
    returning the computer MAY BE ILLEGAL?

    If incriminating evidence of criminal activity was found in a timely manner,
    I believe it would have been proper procedure to …..

    Having a legal picture is not a crime.
    Posting an opinion, especially a political one is not a crime.
    Since the D/C contends the vehicle was registered, then the opinion
    posted must be wrong and there could not have been a use of police
    computers to prove that it was not registered.

    Ergo, since LoSchiavo contends the vehicle was registered, then there
    appears that NO CRIME could have taken place, since NO ONE came up
    and arrested anyone for an unregistered vehicle ……

    There are further complications.
    However, i am neither a lawyer, nor judge, nor police officer.

    Since “this is Stratford,” it is ironic that the only way that LoSchiavo and
    Burturla could prove that someone accessed police computers and had
    illegally released “accurate information” is for the information to be
    “accurate” that the vehicle was unregistered?

    I do not know if an inaccurate blog post is a violation of ANY TYPE of LAW,
    since there may have been a “good faith intent” attempt to expose a crime,
    instead of a “malicious intent” to post what appears to be inaccurate post
    according to LoSchiavo / Burturla?

    Correct me if I am wrong, but being wrong on a political opinion is NOT
    a CRIMINAL VIOLATION?

  161. 161 jezebel282

    George,

    “to trace the origin of the photo”

    Maybe. But not a soul, no one, not the PD, CSP, the AG, no one has EVER asked me who took the picture. Not that I could remember how I got it anyway. But no one ever asked.

    Further, regardless of Loschiavo’s acrobatic explanation of why his car was unregistered, it had apparently come back as not being registered.

    Nonetheless, O’Meara does not live in Stratford. He happened to have been dozens of miles away at the time. It was a simple physical impossibility for him to either take the picture or access police terminals. You didn’t need the CSP for that.

  162. 162 1george1

    Jeze,

    You are good at looking up terms.
    You have friends who are Lawyers and Police.
    I have CASE LAW from Esq. Williams, defining “conspiracy” and “accessory.”

    IF there was a violation of law, and if someone trafficked knowledge of a
    violation of the law, he/she did not have to be party before or during the
    fact. It can be after the fact.

    I do not defend the actions of anyone involved, on any side.

    It is a moot issue if:
    1 – O’Meara actively used police terminals
    2 – O’Meara lives in town or was nearby
    3 – Police investigators to check with you – I can not get them to investigate
    IF MURDERS took place or NOT? It is up to me to prove a CRIME exists and who
    did it – > likely people protecting and protected by xxxxx xxxxxx xxxxx ??

    It is an issue if LoSchiavo’s car was registered or not register.
    If not registered – he violated the law
    if not registered – someone may have used POLICE computers.

    if registered – someone may NOT have used POLICE computers.

    My point was, that LoSchiavo undermines his own COMPLAINT and
    O’MEARA should have his computer back!

    There might be CIVIL ISSUES in both DIRECTIONS?
    I am not advocating any legal or illegal acts, just posting my opinions.

    Jeze, you used the word “apparently” as a wise qualifier:
    ” it had apparently come back as not being registered. “

  163. 163 jezebel282

    George,

    “You have friends who are Lawyers and Police.”

    Lawyers have no friends.

  164. 164 1george1

    Jeze,

    Government Lawyers have no friends.
    They and political actors are only good for compost.

    I do know lawyers who are actually decent people.
    They tend to get into corporate law, real estate, and certain
    other areas, where their hands are less dirty, and they can help
    people rather than ….

    I spoke with Matt Catalano about the signs no one can read as the
    printing is too small and are placed where people drive by.

    This festival thing should be bigger than Stratford Day, if the powers
    that are had worked with all of the non profits, who need funding.

    I tried to hook people together from November through March.
    Everyone has their own agenda.

    I hope the thing works, which had some foundation during Miron’s term?

  165. 165 phineast

    George- it would seem to the average person that if using police equipment for personal use is a crime then the former Deputy Chief should be put away for a very long time. Not only did he use police resources to go after the photographer but he used STATE PD resources as well for a PERSONAL matter investigating your own complaint is a conflict of interest that gets things thrown out of court.. He drove an unregistered car and parked it in an unauthorized spot. He used police personnel over the years to solicit donations for his “fund” and according to the individuals that had to do the soliciting they were on town time..that is larceny. It is shameful that it was allowed it is shameful that it was tolerated by the previous admin. There is a law on the books that will make his retirement go away if these things are pursued in a court of law. So let’s say the he lives to the ripe old age of 80-at his retirement salary of approx. $100K per year that is about 2 million$ plus the health bene costs. seems that it would be a hefty savings to go after him as an example to those that abuse the system..and serve as a deterrent.

  166. 166 phineast

    George- the non profits that need funding don’t want to do any of the work-we tried with several……..they just want money handed to them- and that isn’t going to happen. They have to at least be willing to show up and promote their own cause. They can’t get the people to do it. Their loss. We were more than happy to provide a venue opportunity and cooperative effort.

  167. 167 omeara128

    What I find very amusing is that Chief Buturla says there was no local investigation so there is no case number and it was handled by the Western District Major Crime of The State Police.

    Chief=werent you in charge of this unit numerous times while with the State Police?

    Chief= you say no case number because no local investigation. As an Officer with 15 years of experience I surely know what an investigation is .

    Chief= you knowingly allowed a officer to investigate his own complaint without a case number for 3 weeks.

    Chief= Who was the member from Stratford Pd that contacted an NCIC Administrator who stated that this was a possible crime? Funny, I contacted Joan Hillard who stated her or her office wasnt involved in this investigation/isnt she the person that is contacted if there is an NCIC/COLLECT VIOLATION.

    Chief= Why when there was a complaint by Ofc.Overby about the misuse of collect/ncic you instructed Captain Rodia to start an internal investigation. Chief, you state that NCIC/COLLECT is run by State Police and that why you contacted them to do the investigation but why not with Officer Overbys Complaint.

    Loschiavo goes to dispatch to query his own plate to determine who ran it, this is against NCIC/COLLECT regulations, this must be done through an NCIC Administrator

    Use a retired detective to hekp you investigate, Chief allowed it.

    In a wriiten sworn stement Loschiavo leaves out a crucial fact, where in the parking lot of the PD his car was parked? Funny thing that Chief Buturla leaves out that critical information in a memo to State Police, a Chief who has graduated with a Masters degree, FBI Academy,Director of Homeland Security, Forensics, all these classes/degrees and you do not tell where the car was parked and why it was run.

    I can go on and on……………..

  168. 168 phineast

    Doug-seems to me that your civil rights have been violated by an entire string of people in a harassing way. Time to file the charges/complaints in the the multiple levels of the system. Enough is enough.

  169. 169 sudds

    Doug,

    I just wanted to let you know that I fully support you in all of your efforts*!!!

    * translation – please think of my when you sue the pants off of the town and various of its employees!!!

  170. 170 1george1

    Doug,
    I not only support your effort …. see the dark side
    It specifically mentions your situation:

    I handed that out at Town Council Meeting to
    Town Councilors present
    Harkins
    Town Attorneys: Bishop, Kelly, & Florek
    Police Chief Burturla and a few department heads.
    Gavin (in audience)

    I do not expect Burturla, nor others noted to be happy.
    I believe ALL of US are manipulated from the OUTSIDE.
    It does not make the locals less dangerous.
    – I question many deaths, including Sylvia and Petronella as so close
    to elections.

    Phin
    I agree with you on police issues.

    The lack of willingness of non profits to link up for funding could be
    related to “just doing their paid job?”

    There does seem to be something political in the decisions to drop
    involvement this year, the same way the 10 % Tax increase is likely to
    be used to “force” or “create” zoning and economic changes certain
    people desire for personal profit?

    Many of the non profits are quasi governmental and many have political
    appointments running them.

    It is similar to the utilities companies.

    The reach of government and politics gets to be nearly invisible.

    As far as suing people – doug and the others may want to look at my list
    of political connections in State + Federal Government related to Stratford
    political players in my post in the dark side.

    What chance would a law suit have if the JUDGE was BERCHEM or DEVLIN’S
    Brother or Brother-in-Law or FRATERNITY BROTHER?

    The BAR ASSOCIATION is a CLOSED COMMUNITY and they protect each other
    and the POLICE who KNOW exactly who profits from what in which jurisdiction.
    In the book the Rockefeller Syndrome – it is called the Court House Gang.

    It is amazing to find that some many people trained classically and/or with
    specific talents …. start out with good intent …. then fall victim to the
    DARK SIDE of ENLIGHTENED SELF INTEREST. 😦

    WWE Eddie Guerro’s motto was: “I LIE!” “I CHEAT!” “I STEAL!”
    The FANS loved him ……

    It should replace NOVO ORDO SECLORUM on the DOLLAR.

    I have become reconciled:
    TRUTH is for SUCKERS … like me.
    PLAYING by the RULES is for SUCKERS … like me.
    PAYING fair PRICES is for SUCKERS … like me.

  171. 171 1george1

    I believe I could prove that I believe the Burturla Brothers
    had advance notice on one of the attacks on my computers.

    I also believe I know one of the participants in the break in
    to my home on March 18.

    Ann Frank would have a better chance of the Gestapo doing
    honest investigation of NAZI WAR CRIMES than I would have of
    various police forces investigating R. I. C. O. ACTS of political
    party bosses and actors.

    Was Dredd Scott a “tagname” for SCOTUS?
    SCOT rite U. S.?
    Supreme Court Of The United States?

    Or
    Should or does SCOTUS stand for philosophy of John Duns Scotus?

  172. 172 jezebel282

    George,

    “What chance would a law suit have if the JUDGE was BERCHEM or DEVLIN’S
    Brother or Brother-in-Law or FRATERNITY BROTHER?”

    By golly, you may actually have a point! The warrant was signed by Judge Devlin. He is the same judge that gave Miron’s sister a walk for embezzling $28,000 from Outback Steakhouse.

  173. 173 omeara128

    Update…..THERE IS NONE

  174. 174 1george1

    Is Judge Devlin related to the Devlin of
    Berchem, Moses, and Devlin?

    Like Brother?

    Are either both related to the Devlin of the CIA or
    the TV Producer Dean Devlin of Leverage?

  175. 177 jezebel282

    Apparently someone (not Doug O’Meara) had unauthorized access to police computers:

    Memo

  176. 178 1george1

    The date appears to be April 1.
    Another April fools?

    The check next to adam bauer name?
    A copy of his copy?
    Does the Mayor’s office have a “deep throat,” watergate type leaker?

    The way I read the memo, GEEN was PYA for the Administration and
    backing Police Department heads, that no one should …..
    (do what Mr. O’Meara supposedly did)

    I do not read it as claiming anyone “else” did access the computer.
    I read it as a hole in policy, and backing the decision and inferring
    that someone did access the computer for “x” reason(s).

  177. 179 sudds

    GREAT work chief!!!

    What’s next? A memo telling us that the sun will rise in the east tomorrow??? Or perhaps one telling us that it will set in the west???

    I mean seriously… WTF???

    The mayor, quasi-mayor, chief of police, human resources director, and asst police chief have a meeting (do the math people… that’s about $200+ per hour of OUR TAX DOLLARS), and the result is a formal written policy to state that UNAUTHORIZED users are not authorized!!!

    Hey Sudds did you get a 25 % raise after being on the job 6 months,
    and NOT even know 1 sticker is for the Beach AND Dump?

    Do you have Health Care where you pay 13% of the premium?

    Do you have a Pension that pays you 300 % – 400 % of what you would
    get if you had a defined contribution plan and UNLIKE a 401 the rate
    of PENSION is SET?

    Do You have an Annuity?

    Do you have a 401, Pension over base pay, Annuity, Health Care plan
    with 13 % premium as a retiree. A certain D/C does!

    Are all of your work expenses paid?

    Do you have 35 or 37 1/2 hour work week, in heated / ac building?

    Do you work more than 186 days or 220 days a year?

    Do you get negotiated pay increases + step increases + C.O.L.A.

    Whatever workers get, managment has to get better … correct?
    Where is the incentive to keep reasonable pay, benefits, retirement?

    Can you sell 2 pieces of equipment for close to $ 900,000, while the
    bid was $ 230,000 for one?

    Can you walk away with airconditioners?

  179. 181 omeara128

    George…

    With that being said, KNOWING I had no involvement with accessing any police terminal at the Police Dept, I was not at the PD for over 1 year when this occurred so you know that Harkins Administration knows this, SO THEN WHO WOULD THIS NEW POLICY BE IN REGARDS TO????

  180. 182 1george1

    Fairfield recently hired a NEW POLICE CHIEF.
    None of the 3 RANK OFFICERS / CANDIDATES lived in Fairfield.
    Fairfield has a Town Law that the Police Chief must live in Fairfield.
    As a condition of promotion to Police Chief, the new chief had to
    create a Town residence.

    Where does the stratford police chief live?

    for that matter, is it true?
    70% of teachers live outside stratford
    70% of firemen live outside stratford
    50+% of polices live outside stratford
    How much Stratford Property Tax do they pay?

    How many of the new hires by Miron / Harkins do not live in Stratford?

    Jeze will ignore the issue for Jeze’s heroes.

    I favor well paid professional over volunteers,
    everyone deserves decent benefits and pensions.
    In no way do I demean anyone’s work problems.

    You made a complaint.
    The Administration created a memo about nothing.

    Doug, there was no mention of you or any resolution, except
    that your name the cause of the memo from your complaint.

    Doug they do not care that you were not there for over a year.

    I am sure they used you and scapegoated you, probably even
    fabricated evidence – as I saw in my civil case vs. Mossman.

    They enjoy hurting people and creating cover stories that are
    tangential to the real issues.
    How many times have Stratford headlines been about X, WHILE

    The July to Novemeber 1999 and Jan 2000 series of auto accidents
    to me and women in my circle with rear end accidents ALL HAPPENED
    on INTERSTATE or STATE ROADS.

    These happened AFTER I filed a certified complaint to William Cabrol,
    Council Chairman, related to the Police chief Mossman arrest against
    Town Manager Mark Barnhart and Town Attorney Richard Burturla.

    A former Police Officer once told me Burturla “was protected?”

  185. 187 1george1

    GREAT WORK JEZE
    It APPEARS I am correct the same people screwing around with Doug
    O’Meara also affect me and protect Mirons/Burturlas?

    July 1999 – exBoss Pris rear-ended a stop short I-91 Hartford

    Aug 1999 – my car totalled Main Street, Stratford pulling into Gas
    Station on corner of Long Brook

    Sept 1999 – girl I dated was rear-ended I -95 NY on way to NY Airport

    Oct – My godson mother was rear-ended I – 84 in NY. She worked as
    Highway escourt for mobil home tractor trailors.

    Nov 1999 – My cousin Daughter was rear-ended on State Road in Easton
    leaving her parent’s home

    Dec 1999 – nothing

    Jan 2000 – girl I dated was rear-ended I -95 NY on way to NY Airport
    Jan 2000 – cousin’s father in law died, sudden heart attack?

    Feb 2000 – I sent Registered Letter listing the above to CT. Supreme
    Court Justice William Sullivan’s office. He was head of the CT. Criminal
    Justice Commission = appoints CT. Prosecutors

    Feb 2000 – Former Stratford Police Joe Harry, then Bridgeport Asst
    State Prosecutor ran into my courtroom just before I was to appear
    to Administrative Judge about auto accident where i got the ticket
    despite being hit by a teenager with 2 passengers, who if paying
    attention could have moved from outside to inside lane.
    Joe Harry almost fell on his face.
    The case was summarily dismissed as soon as I got to the Judge?

    Feb 1997 CT Rev servicess arrested me as I was using IRS + REV filings
    to document deaths.
    State Prosecutor Alex Baldwin claimed he never met me when I was
    there the prior month.
    Judge threw me in Jail $ 10,000 cash bond.
    My Uncle paid Bond.
    He developed KIDNEY problems and died SEPT 23, 1997
    He had NO HISTORY – A HISTORY appeared in Medical File.

    The Mossman Civil Trial Verdict was entered SEPT 23, 2004
    7TH Anniversary of my uncle’s death / murder.

    AMONG MISSING e-mails were to/from Blumenthal related to the

    O’Meara also affect me and protect Mirons/Burturlas?

    Monthly auto accidents involving women in my life (some distance)
    were ALL on STATE / FEDERAL ROADS.

    Those were all rear-end, except mine, which was attempted murder.
    My car totalled.
    I got concussion.

    Imagine the series of accidents to women in your family and extended
    family?

    Would you or would you not be suspicious?

    What are the ODDS of these “rear-end” / other accidents on monthly basis?
    You are a mathematician and have excellent computer skills.

    Where would you turn if like O’Meara and I, it appeared there is a connection
    between LOCAL + STATE POLICE?

    Now ADD FEDERAL FBI/Justice – which works with CT. Homeland Security whose
    director at the time WAS …. John Burturla

  188. 190 jezebel282

    Jeze – SPECIFICALLY, HOW CAN I IMPROVE towards my OBJECTIVE,

    which is trying to protect lives and livelihoods of others, yet with me in the
    center of an uneven wagon wheel – for the purpose of me RECOGNIZING
    PERSONAL ICONS, being used for me to SEE, but not others?
    > I never claimed 100 % or even majority of History is related.
    > I claim there are people who always had control and use a CODE that
    when seen and understood, connects many DOTS.
    > TRANSLATING WORDS, ALPHABETS, and CREATING WORDS, there is a
    central base and it can normal and understandable that the same rules
    apply to good and bad events, especially in Military – Political History.

    > I am NOT the center of the universe.
    > Someone attacks people around me, allowing me to see the patterns of
    attacks, which would be COMPLETELY IRRATIONAL to others who did NOT

    You are far more effective when you are advocating for others.
    THANK YOU.

    Jeze, how often have I asked for personal benefit?
    I believe NEVER.

    I believe my advocating for others, takes 2 tracts.
    1 – People you can relate to and support.
    2 – People you can not relate to, and do not believe there are
    relationships due to lack of being exposed to what I am exposed
    to, and logically would be unlikely to believe – like Mr. Pedoto
    and others on this blog / elsewhere?

  190. 192 jezebel282

    George,

    “Jeze – SPECIFICALLY, HOW CAN I IMPROVE towards my OBJECTIVE,”

    Well, for one thing you can stop hitting “enter” after every fourth word. Try using paragraphs (they are strings of sentences that are connected by a thought). Also, you might limit each post to one or two thoughts instead of 20 or 30.

  191. 193 1george1

    Jeze your suggestions are about writing / posting style.

    (Which I can do).

    I am looking for substantive suggestions. We disagree on relevance
    and connecting one string of ideas, which transition to related ideas.

    My posts are (mostly) much shorter, as I am now converting what would
    have been 1 post into 3 posts.

    Portia’s long posts with multiple topics are better writen than my post,
    but allowed me to see the difficulting in breaking out separate ideas.
    My comments also saw Portia lower verbage per post.

  192. 194 jezebel282

    George,

    I only say this because I believe your heart is as big as, well…the rest of you.

    This blog is not an official record (gasp!). I know, I know. It’s hard to believe. You don’t have to post everything that ever happened to you. Or everyone that ever slighted you, didn’t look you in the eye or pleased you in some way. Try to make a coherent point and STOP typing. If you find yourself typing B-i-l-d-e-r-b-e it may be too late. Just hold down the backspace key.

  193. 195 1george1

    Jeze,

    You have your intent of what the blog is.
    No one sticks strictly to your intent, including yourself.

    I stray the furthest. Guilty!

    Conversely I also make many of the best posts about what is happening
    in town and I have connected dots for many people.
    I have also helped some people realize they made mistakes. (unions)
    I have also helped some people realize they were suckered. (unions &)

    Your blog spot has been a catharsis for me and great practice for the
    debates …. after Kane, cyclops and others, Jimmy and Dom were pussy
    cats, and John’s style is genteel.

    Your blog is super to practice writing letters to the Editor. My same style
    or lack of style which Mr. Pedoto and Mike R, among others to brand me
    delusional, exists in my letters to editor and here.

    As to Trilateral, CFR, Bilderberg, CIA, DOD, FBI, foreign intell etc.
    They exist.
    Recent political economic socio and other problems exist and evolve.
    The USA is both bottom up and top down, with most in the middle.

    New facts pop up.
    It changes perspectives.
    Often rewrites cause revelations.

    Jeze, I have no control nor do I want any control on this blog.
    I know that certain lawyers we know and others CHANGE FACTS.
    They have NO CREDIBILITY outside a CONTROLLED SITUATION.

    ——–

    I only say this because I believe your heart is as big as, well…
    the rest of you.

    Nice compliment.
    We have come a long way.
    Best political compliment is Ed (Beefy) Hargus calling me his son.

    With my weight, age, and pot stirring … my heart / health > who knows?

    This blog is not an official record (gasp!).

    I went back to June 2008 topics in your blog since that is where my
    first deletion happend in my data base and files.
    If you choose to look back then topics were:
    FIRE TRUCKS
    FAC after my TIRE SLASH
    PENSIONS
    HEALTH CARE Report

    Jeze – it may not be an official record ….. but I did not have to go to
    the Library to research Newspapers or to the Newspapers, either.

    I post for my reasons. Some are noted above.

    I post for local and non local audiences.

    Some non local audiences might just step in and crush your enemies,
    if they had the right motive?
    Among my posts are a wide ranges of motives outsiders might consider
    for cause of action?
    M oney
    I deology
    C ompromise
    E go

    Several people suggest various laws of various Jurisdictions may have
    been violated, per constitutional, civil, criminal, etc,

    This blog is not official.
    It does point to skeltons.
    It does pont to starting places for investigation.
    It might even lead to a good Stratford Town Charter? 😉

    Jeze –
    I only wrote this because I believe your heart is as big as, well…
    the efforts you put into this blog and your responsiveness.

    We can agree or disagree….
    The opposite of love is not hate …. it is apathy antithetical to both.
    Neither you, nor I are apathetic …. we have different priorities and
    different perspectives ….

    Shalom

    George,

    Just sayin’.

    Sigh….

  195. 197 omeara128

    Still no decision on releasing the reports.

  196. 198 omeara128

    Its ok though, I have a good feeling I will be getting them soon enough.

  197. 199 1george1

    Good luck with getting the records and subsequent actions.

    Did you get your computer back?

    They hit my personal Data Base again.
    On the PC not connected to Internet?
    Deleted phone # s of certain local people and family members.

    It appears some police and military are “criminals and traitors.”
    Likely they consider being “criminals and traitors” a compliment?

    Doug, there are only 3 people who publicly supported you, about
    your computer being stolen.
    > I was one of them.

  198. 200 omeara128

    George,

    I just want to make a correction. The state police never came to get my computer but they threatened to and the ex parte supeona allowed them to if they wanted to. What they did do was find out who I was under the name I used on wordpress. They gained access to my email account which allowed them to look through all my emails etc.

    The State Police Computer Crimes Unit investigated an alledged violation of NCIC, thats right the computer crimes unit of the State Police.

    I find this too funny. I remember there was a dispatcher working @ Stratford, she was running background checks on her friends. In order to do this you have to put on the screen who the officer is that is requesting the information, she was putting in a SGT’s name without the Sgt having any knowledge his name was being used. Stratford contacted NCIC Adminstrator @ Dept of Public Safety, their response was basically do what you want, she was let go, no charges filed.

    I guess this is something new, If theres an alledged violation of NCIC in Stratford, the Computer Crimes Unit of the State Police does the investigation.

  199. 201 1george1

    “If theres an alledged violation of NCIC in Stratford, the Computer
    Crimes Unit of the State Police does the investigation.”

    Doug,
    If I was the police chief and/or town attorney and/or mayor, I would
    want 3rd party outside concurrance, similar to what is needed for a
    warrant.

    Some may call it: PYA; CHILLING; INTIMIDATION; COLOR of the LAW;
    ABUSE of DISCRETION.
    Others may call it hardball politics …

    Doug – I think you will find this interesting:

    Among thousands of documents and many e-mails and address book,
    one of the deleted emails was something like FBI.CI which I sent.

    I am unsure if C I stands for Criminal Investigation or Confidential
    Informant? (I am not, although I talked to multiple local, state, fed
    police / investigatory / lawyers / judges over the years.

    I still have the other FBI and police e-addresses.

    Doug – I think you will find this interesting:

    Some time in 2010, before March 18 break in to my home both Police
    Chief Burturla and Town Attorney Burturla inexplicably changed their
    e-addresses?

    I know in late 2009 / early 2010 they were set up one way and I sent
    and e-mail to DICK, who copied Berchem, writing me to NEVER EMAIL
    HIM AGAIN ….!

    Naturally George being George and wanting him to know I got his
    message, I EMAILED Dick back ….OK!
    8) 😉 😉

    For some reason, even Tim Bishop thought it was FUNNY on my part,
    and I do have a right to use the Town e-mail address of anyone using
    a town e-address.

    It is not like I was abusing the priviledge of communicating with dick! 😉

  200. 202 jezebel282

    Update:

    In a major new development, Officer O’Meara has filed suit in Federal Court against the trooper Lawrence Terra of Connecticut State Police et al for violation of his Fourth Amendment rights.

    Complaint

    Apparently we shall see if the Law of Buturla takes precedence over the Constitution.

  201. 203 1george1

    Let DOUG know it is crucial which Judge gets his case.

    Both Federal Judges Chatigney and Droney have motive to protect
    the Burturlas. BMD has many political contacts, who in turn placed
    Judges on the Federal Bench.

    Most Judges were State Prosecutors, Assistant States Attorneys,
    or Public Attorneys, who built up “F A V O R S” within the system
    for what was prosecuted and not prosecuted, but also for the
    D E A L S + P L E A S they created ……

    Incidently, not much on this blog recently about DICK MIRON?

    I have seen KELLY signs. Not seen a single JIM MIRON sign?

    In 2 elections I lost (stolen) 60 of 80 signs.

    In 2009 I put out 47 signs for 49 hours, the Sunday before the election
    and picked up less than 20 by Tuesday 10 pm.
    Many of my signs were on Town Planting strips, like Kelly’s near Mr.
    Freddette’s Elite towing. I expected to lose some.

    I also put several signs at the exit 32 rotary, sunday night.
    By noon monday, Jim, John, & Dom all had twice as many signs where
    none of their campaigns realized was the key entrance to Town.
    Cumberland Farms exit # 32 is # 1 gas sales in entire chain!

  202. 204 ronmoreau

    George,

    “I also put several signs at the exit 32 rotary, sunday night.
    By noon monday, Jim, John, & Dom all had twice as many signs where
    none of their campaigns realized was the key entrance to Town.”

    They knew, they also know it is illegal to put campaign signs on town property. That is why they were put up the night before the election.

    Doug,

    Good luck.

  203. 205 1george1

    Ron,

    They had signs placed legally and illegally all over Stratford.
    They each had 1200 signs = 3,600 signs. I had 47.

    People told me their children were asking where are Mr. Mulligan’s signs?
    I held back until the Sunday night before the election, and put them near
    every I-15 + I-95 ramp and key state roads.
    Only 2 ways into/out of Lordship.
    Only a few State / Federal roads into / out of Stratford (work).
    Some roads (mostly State) have high traffic within Stratford, where as
    many people have to pass to get to Schools (Mon) or Shop (Mon-Tues)

    I even went around Monday night and moved some around.
    Some were already gone.

    RON – I believe it NEVER occurred to any of them to put them on the
    Rotary?

    I find it FUNNY now that a TOWN ATTORNEY (Kevin) has signs (illegally)
    on town Planting Strips!

    Are Kelly + Miron going to debate?
    I volunteered my services to be the questioner, moderator to Kelly
    and in the Star.
    I think Kevin was still laughing 5 minutes after I asked him.
    I was told after he read it in the Star, he was not laughing.

    I like Kevin more than I like Jimmy, as people.
    As politicians for what they have done to or for Stratford… they suck.

    At least Jimmy spent some money on improving things for black people,
    something never to occur to Norm, Darth or countryclubcronies?
    Yes I know it was 99.99 % politically calculated.

  204. 206 1george1

    Jeze,
    I spent about $ 600 running for Mayor.

    I think Jim spent about $ 105,000.

    I read somewhere Harkins spent more than everyone combined?
    I do not know?

    I think Dom claimed to spend $ 35,000. I suspect he exaggerated?

    Do you know the exact money filed by others and “true vote count?” 😦
    Or at least the final vote count for Mayor and 3rd District Council? 😉

    Next election, I may spend $ 800. 8)

  205. 207 jezebel282

    George,

    “I spent about $ 600 running for Mayor.”

    If I recall, this topic is about the persecution of Officer O’Meara and the violation of his Fourth Amendment rights.

    How does this turn into a discussion of how much you spent on a failed campaign and lawn signs?

    Why not discuss why Jim Miron, John Buturla or Joseph Loschiavo persecuted this man?

  206. 208 1george1

    It was a follow up to my above post.

    Had I been elected Mayor,
    do you believe I would have persecuted anyone?
    People voted for the wrong people who allowed and caused problems.

  207. 209 omeara128

    UPDATE.

    FOI Commisioner Sherman D London of Southbury CT ruled in favor of the CT STATE POLICE not to release the reports to me.

  208. 210 jezebel282

    Doug,

    “not to release the reports to me.”

    National Security concerns or do they just not like ex cops?

  209. 211 1george1

    I wonder who appointed FOI Commisioner Sherman D London?
    Or with whom he or his family are related?
    I suspect there is an appeal process?

  210. 212 omeara128

    Yes, there is an appeal process.

    One thing I did find out is that the State Police Report consists of 185 pages, according to Stratford Police Administration I was the only subject that was being sought in this alleged NCIC violation. 185 PAGES

  211. 213 1george1

    Once they decide to TARGET anyone, every DIRTY TRICK is used!

    Several years ago, I was in a police HQ and shown the computer
    program where police can look up your relatives, finance records,
    career, social, and religeous affiliations.

    They can access all kinds of technical and internet information,
    including keystroke documentation, extract infomation, and plant
    information.

    They lie in court.
    They supress.
    They lie in police reports.
    They plant evidence.

  212. 214 1george1

    Can we get another topic on the opening of the blog.
    It is painful to see a Miron or Burturla.

  213. 215 jezebel282

    George,

    “Can we get another topic on the opening of the blog.
    It is painful to see a Miron or Burturla.”

    Maybe. If you get someone to talk Harkins into finally doing the right thing and suspending Joe McNeil and Orlando Soto with pay while the State forces delay after delay.

  214. 216 1george1

    There is something fishy going on about that situation, which would
    make you furious, if what I hear is true?

  215. 217 jezebel282

    George,

    “if what I hear is true?”

    Since no one has any idea what you hear, I can’t comment.

    I can say for sure that in this country you are innocent until proven guilty. Since neither McNeil nor Soto have been proven anything there is no justification for their continued punishment.

    “No comment” or “It’s complicated” is simply no excuse.

  216. 218 1george1

    In mid Feb, I had heard there was going to be violence prior to
    March 2 election. Something happened which to most people
    appeared to be natural cause, except to a relative.

    Nov election will put some people in place, and the deals will be
    struck after those elections, with foundations laid.

    There are always certain arrests prior to elections to create illusions.

    There has also been discreet violence.

  217. 219 omeara128

    UPDATE.

    I even appealed to FOI Commission after Sherman D London of Southbury upheld the decision by Public Safety not to release the reports to me.

    A hearing was held again and with my attorney we told our case, once again Sherman D London was on the board voting again. Once again we were voted against and the decision was upheld. I find it hard to believe that Sherman London who made the decision in the first place could be on the appeal board as a member again voting on the appeal.

    As a retired officer in the State of CT, I find it hard to believe if you were investigated by an agency that you can not find out what the investigation entails. Even when you email account was accessed, your not allowed to know why. Disgusting, Ive exhausted all means attempting to get the reports.

  218. 220 ronmoreau

    Doug,

    And these are suppost to be the ‘good guys’. It’s getting harder and harder to tell the difference anymore. It’s like somebody said: “You can love this country and hate our government.”

  219. 221 1george1

    Ron,
    The author was Mark Twain.

    It is amazing how timeless the political remarks of Mark Twain, Will Rogers,
    and others have been for a century and more … (or less)

    I agree on good guys.
    Our choices apeear to be bad, worse, and worst?

    In Dickenson’s book “Death of a Republic”
    Caesar made all of the check and balances unworkable and had all of
    the Public Officials on his pay role.
    Sound familiar?

    Doug,
    Have you tried turning to the media, with union support?
    If instate don’t help, there are out of state nad internet to appeal?
    (I would not bet on CT POST / Channels 8, 9, or 61)

    If it is a CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUE, the STATE CCLU or NATIONAL ACLU may
    get involved? (not likely – they seem to support weird issues)

    The BAR ASSOCIATIONS are an alternative. (not likely)

  220. 222 omeara128

    Update..

    My lawyer has the reports. All I can say it was misled and the truth is in the reports. What an investigation

    # 167
    What I find very amusing is that Chief Buturla says there was no local investigation so there is no case number and it was handled by the Western District Major Crime of The State Police.

    Chief=werent you in charge of this unit numerous times while with the State Police?

    Chief= you say no case number because no local investigation. As an Officer with 15 years of experience I surely know what an investigation is .

    Chief= you knowingly allowed a officer to investigate his own complaint without a case number for 3 weeks.

    Chief= Who was the member from Stratford Pd that contacted an NCIC Administrator who stated that this was a possible crime? Funny, I contacted Joan Hillard who stated her or her office wasnt involved in this investigation/isnt she the person that is contacted if there is an NCIC/COLLECT VIOLATION.

    Chief= Why when there was a complaint by Ofc.Overby about the misuse of collect/ncic you instructed Captain Rodia to start an internal investigation. Chief, you state that NCIC/COLLECT is run by State Police and that why you contacted them to do the investigation but why not with Officer Overbys Complaint.

    Loschiavo goes to dispatch to query his own plate to determine who ran it, this is against NCIC/COLLECT regulations, this must be done through an NCIC Administrator

    Use a retired detective to hekp you investigate, Chief allowed it.

    In a wriiten sworn stement Loschiavo leaves out a crucial fact, where in the parking lot of the PD his car was parked? Funny thing that Chief Buturla leaves out that critical information in a memo to State Police, a Chief who has graduated with a Masters degree, FBI Academy,Director of Homeland Security, Forensics, all these classes/degrees and you do not tell where the car was parked and why it was run.

    I can go on and on……………..

    ========================================================

    Doug,
    You understand what you mean by the term “the reports.”

    Specifically
    What are the reports?
    What is the significance of the reports?
    Author?
    Purpose?
    Use?
    Etc?

    —-

    The election is over.

    Malloy (D) is Governor.
    Himes (D) is Congressman.
    Blumenthal (D) is Senator.

    McNeil, O’Meara, and others can no longer affect races.


    # 177 MEMO by HARKINS
    Apparently someone (not Doug O’Meara) had unauthorized access to police computers:


    # 181
    George…

    With that being said, KNOWING I had no involvement with accessing any police terminal at the Police Dept, I was not at the PD for over 1 year when this occurred so you know that Harkins Administration knows this, SO THEN WHO WOULD THIS NEW POLICY BE IN REGARDS TO????


    # 185
    An alleged violation of NCIC/COLLECT.

    Computer Crimes Unit of the CT State Police investigating an alleged violation of NCIC/COLLECT.

    So in every otherMunicipal Police dept in the State of CT if there is an alleged violation into NCIC/COLLECT, the State Police Computer Crimes Unit is involved?

    WOW, this is a first Ive heard of.

  223. 225 omeara128

    As you know I have the whole investigative reports. Stratford states that I was the sole focus of the investigation, I beg to differ. This was an alleged misuse of NCIC/COLLECT system.

    Stratford called in a computer forensics company to remove hard drives from Detective ID computer, Detective computer and 1 other that is not mentioned, so it wasnt just about me, the were looking to prosecute numerous Stratford Officers once again, I wonder what the bill for that one was.

    What is really hard for me to believe as to what length Stratford and the Western District Major Crime would go to attempt to prosecute me.

    Now, dont we all think that a major fact in the investigation would be where the DC parked his car?? This would confirm why his personal wifes car was run by officers when parked in a restricted parking spot for POLICE CHIEF ONLY.

    I also see is that the Sgt. Tarra from Major Crime says that he checked the schedule to see if Omeara was working the nite the car was run, his response and a quote” It appears that Officer Omeara was absent from his 12-0800 shift. Now lets rewind here, so no one ever told Sgt.Tarra that I was out of work on an injury leave and that it was 1 year since I was the Police Dept, no theyleft that out of the investigation.

    Why would in a signed, sworn statement would loschaivo leave out where he parked his wifes car, he says I parked the car in the Stratford Police parking Lot overnite…..

    Why would they leave out the fact again where the car was parked in the arrest warrant affidavit for me, again it states it was parked in the stratford prking lot overnite.

    Also, what I cant truly beleive is that the warrant application states that Omeara Committed Computer Crime in the 3rd Degree in the Town of Stratford. Now wait a minute, I was out of work for 1 year, never stepped foot inside the PD and I posted to the blog on my own computer in the Town of Seymour…No wonder they fought soooo hard not to give me these reports. They also blame me for posting the picture of loschiavos car to the internet even after wordpress stated they had no information regarding the posted picture, Sgt. Tarra stated that wordpress identifies me as the contributor, what liars, I never posted any picture ever to this blog.

  224. 226 jezebel282

    Do you get to slap the cuffs on these guys even if you’re retired?

    As you know I have the whole investigative reports. Stratford states
    that I was the sole focus of the investigation, I beg to differ.
    This was an alleged misuse of NCIC/COLLECT system.

    MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE – VERY POSSIBLY TRUE.

    Stratford called in a computer forensics company to remove hard
    drives from Detective ID computer, Detective computer and 1 other
    that is not mentioned, so it wasnt just about me, the were looking
    to prosecute numerous Stratford Officers once again, I wonder

    OTHERWISE – HARD COPY 50 Cents a PAGE.

    What is really hard for me to believe as to what length Stratford and
    the Western District Major Crime would go to attempt to prosecute me.

    MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE – VERY POSSIBLY TRUE.
    What had you done to tick off someone?
    Would be interesting to bring personal suits under color of the law,
    under the R.I.C.O. ACT.
    To be effective must ask for relationship documentation involving
    certain Law Firms, CT Troopers, Local Police, and political connections.
    – I would expect cover up and steering docketing or dismissal?
    – You need to identify all of the allies and who their enemies are?
    – Which political players could benefit, from voids you can cause?
    – FBI has sat back on Stratford …. so far … unsure which way the wind
    blows and who they intend to investigate or scapegoat?

    Now, dont we all think that a major fact in the investigation would
    be where the DC parked his car??
    This would confirm why his personal wifes car was run by officers
    when parked in a restricted parking spot for POLICE CHIEF ONLY.

    REASONABLE PEOPLE think certain ways.
    POLITICAL ALLIES think certain ways.
    ENEMY POLITICAL ALLIES think certain ways.
    AGAINST a POWERFUL ENEMY with POLITICAL FRIENDS, you need more
    than plain, clear, and preponderant evidence.
    If you have what you need and can cut a deal with their patrons, you
    can get what you want, and who you want, providing you have a deal.
    > Those who would be betrayed, can not use leverage against superiors,
    because of fear of reprisal. Rowland, Ganim, Newton, Fabrizi know alot
    of names….. Information I gave the Ganims last year …helped spring Joe.
    I got no thanks … none expected.

    I also see is that the Sgt. Tarra from Major Crime says that he checked
    the schedule to see if Omeara was working the nite the car was run,
    his response and a quote” It appears that Officer Omeara was absent
    from his 12-0800 shift.
    Now lets rewind here, so no one ever told Sgt.Tarra that I was out of
    work on an injury leave and that it was 1 year since I was the Police
    Dept, no theyleft that out of the investigation.

    IN MY DEALINGS with FAIRFIELD POLICE, STRATFORD POLICE, STATE
    REVENUE SERVICE and others – NEVER HAD ANY of them WRITE THE
    TRUTH. NOT MOSSMAN, NOR THE ONES INVOLVED in ACCIDENTS,
    with one exception.

    However, I have had a couple of decent police uses of discretion
    where they could have legitimately used leverage…..

    Why would in a signed, sworn statement would loschaivo leave out
    where he parked his wifes car, he says I parked the car in the
    Stratford Police parking Lot overnite…..

    RHETTORICAL QUESTION?
    It might go to discretion and color of the law..

    Why would they leave out the fact again where the car was parked
    in the arrest warrant affidavit for me, again it states it was parked
    in the stratford parking lot overnite.

    RHETTORICAL QUESTION?
    It might go to discretion and color of the law..

    Also, what I cant truly beleive is that the warrant application states
    that Omeara Committed Computer Crime in the 3rd Degree in the
    Town of Stratford.
    Now wait a minute, I was out of work for 1 year, never stepped

    Doug,
    Do you get to slap the cuffs on these guys even if you’re retired?

    Jeze,
    I have looked into “CITIZEN’S ARREST.”
    The probable short answer about Doug doing the arresting is “NO!”

  227. Joseph Lo Schiavo has been victimized. He trained his men to be honest, but unfortunately for the honest people in Stratford there are a few Cop-outs that see no harm in criminalizing innocent people for their own gain, or coverup of their own screw-ups. When we have Captains, and Chiefs who back-up the liars, well guess what!

    Paul Fressola LIES. That is a fact! Another lawsuit against him will commence this year.

  228. CIVILIAN CITIZENS OF STRATFORD

    PLEASE DO NOT BE AFRAID TO FIGHT BACK!

  229. 231 1george1

    Just wondering?

    What is there to believe IF a certain person lied to my face
