Police Officers Sexual Misconduct with Minors

a more widespread problem?

Police Chief "Shocked" By Officer's Arrest

12:18 PM EDT, October 30, 2007

East Windsor [Connecticut] Police Chief Edward DeMarco Jr. said today that he was "shocked" following the arrest of one of his officers for allegedly using the Internet to persuade an 11-year-old girl to have sex with him.

DeMarco announced in a press conference today that the police department is conducting an internal investigation that will determine whether Officer Darren Seligman, 38, used town equipment to engage in the illegal activity or violated any other department policies. DeMarco said he was notified by FBI officials Monday that they had an active arrest warrant for Seligman, a Mansfield resident who has been with the department for four and a half years.

With the assistance of East Windsor police, DeMarco said, FBI agents arrested Seligman, a U.S. Army veteran, Monday when he arrived early for his night shift.

"The allegations are most definitely shocking," said DeMarco, who has a 14-year-old daughter. "We're law enforcement officials, but we're parents as well."

East Windsor Police Capt. Roger Hart said Seligman has two children of his own. Hart said he believed Seligman is either separated or divorced.

Seligman is being detained pending a detention hearing set for Thursday at 10 a.m. in Hartford. If convicted, Seligman faces a minimum 10-year prison sentence and a fine of as much as $250,000. He has been placed on paid administrative leave.

His case was being investigated by the Connecticut Computer Crimes Task Force, which includes federal state and local law enforcement agencies.

"Connecticut Courts are a joke and a charade."

-William "Bill" Doriss

Mr. Doriss is suing New Haven and Connecticut for $20 million.

Doriss claims that Connecticut can be small business unfriendly.

Doriss' large dog bit and killed a smaller, unleashed dog. There were children allegedly about 30 feet away that witnessed the event. Doriss was charged with multiple counts of risk of injury to minors, felonies. William Doriss faced 80 to 140 years in prison for his dog getting out of his control.

Using this logic, can a parent that drives by a traffic fatality, with children in the car be charged with felonies, risk of injury to minors, facing decades in prison?

Truth is in the Telling

October 27, 2007

WASHINGTON (AP) — The homeland security chief on Saturday lashed into his own employees for staging a phony news conference at the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

"I think it was one of the dumbest and most inappropriate things I've seen since I've been in government," Michael Chertoff said.

"I have made unambiguously clear, in Anglo-Saxon prose, that it is not to ever happen again and there will be appropriate disciplinary action taken against those people who exhibited what I regard as extraordinarily poor judgment," he added.

Asked specifically if he planned to fire anyone at FEMA, which is part of his department, Chertoff declined to say, citing personnel rules.

"There will be appropriate discipline," he told reporters at a news conference with New York's governor where they announced an agreement on a driver's license plan.

Chertoff said he knew nothing about the matter until after it happened and that he "can't explain why it happened."

The White House on Friday scolded FEMA for the faux press conference about assistance to victims of wildfires in southern California.

The agency — much maligned for its sluggish response to Hurricane Katrina over two years ago — arranged to have FEMA employees play the part of reporters at the event Tuesday and question Vice Adm. Harvey E. Johnson, the deputy director.

The questions were soft and gratuitous.

"I'm very happy with FEMA's response," Johnson said in reply to one query from an agency employee.

FEMA gave reporters only 15 minutes notice about Tuesday's news conference. But because of the short notice, the agency made available an 800 number so reporters could call in. Many did, although it was a listen-only arrangement.

Johnson said in a statement Friday that FEMA's goal was "to get information out as soon as possible and in trying to do so we made an error in judgment."

"Our intent was to provide useful information and be responsive to the many questions we have received," he said. "We can and must do better."

New Hampshire warns residents not to travel into Connecticut as the Constitution does not apply

Travel Warning
Republic of New Hampshire
Department of Justice
Keene, NH 03431

This information verified current as of today, Thu Oct 26 2006 19:08:57 GMT-0400 (Eastern Standard Time).

October 26, 2006

This Travel Warning for the State of Connecticut provides a partial description of a security
situation facing New Hampshire citizens. It notes that citizens of New Hampshire have faced
oppression in the State of Connecticut and advises citizens of New Hampshire to evaluate
their security situation and consider departing.

The Republic of New Hampshire continues to warn residents against travel to Connecticut in
light of recent unrest following the unwarranted, illegal detainment of New Hampshire resident
Lauren Canario in the Fort Trumbull neighborhood of New London, where several New
Hampshire expatriates are known to reside. Canario was arrested for peacefully reading a
book on a piece of property in defiance of Connecticut's attempt to seize said land. All
attempts at resolution of this matter have resulted in extreme brutality against Canario and
others. Canario is currently being held indefinitely in inhumane conditions at a Connecticut
detention facility.

The unrest is exacerbated by known rampant corruption within the New London Police
Department, the Police Department of the State of Connecticut, and the government of the
State of Connecticut in general. This corruption is known to exist at all levels: Executive,
Legislative, and especially judicial. Residents should at all costs avoid relying on government
agencies in Connecticut to resolve their issues. Government agencies in Connecticut are
known to seize property from those in distress.

There is little hope for a resolution to the current crisis. Connecticut is known to hold
prisoners indefinitely, and New Hampshire is unable to assist New Hampshire residents who
have been so detained. The Republic of New Hampshire has received confirmed reports of
inhumane conditions existing in Connecticut prisons, including the use of vicious attack dogs
to force submission, the shackling of prisoners who are in their cells, the use of extreme cold
to punish prisoners, the unremitting use of bright lights at all hours, and denial of basic human

New Hampshire residents traveling through Connecticut should be aware that the Bill of
Rights exists in a state of de facto suspension in Connecticut. Residents cannot expect that
they enjoy any rights in Connecticut.

New Hampshire residents should exercise extreme caution if the situation necessitates travel
through Connecticut. Granite-staters who travel to or remain in Connecticut despite this
Travel Warning are strongly urged to avoid interaction with government forces in Connecticut,
as these government forces and agencies are the major cause of the unrest in the State.

Regular updates on the security disturbance in Connecticut will be provided on this website,
and on the website at www.keenefreepress.com. Up-to-date information on safety and
security is available at 603-209-7703 24 hours a day.

James Galante

Galante Turns Himself In
Hauler Will Answer Campaign Charges

October 13, 2007

Danbury garbage executive James Galante turned himself in to the state police Friday morning to face charges of making nearly $40,000 in illegal campaign contributions, as a third political figure acknowledged being the recipient of $8,000 in questionable money.

Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, a Republican, said Friday that one of his political action committees received money from Galante in 2003 that was disguised through third-party, or "straw" donors. Sources familiar with the campaign finance case said this week that Boughton got the money in October 2003.

Earlier in the week, the same sources said that Republican state Sens. Louis DeLuca of Woodbury and David Cappiello of Danbury each got $15,000 from Galante in 2002 under similar circumstances.

No charges are contemplated against the three political figures. Like Boughton, both senators acknowledged receiving money, but said they were not aware the contributions had been "bundled" by Galante, as is alleged.

In cases of bundled donations, individual contributors typically exceed the legal $1,000 contribution limit by passing money through third parties. Galante is accused of contributing the money in $1,000 increments through employees of his various trash businesses, their family members or their friends.

Galante, 54, of New Fairfield, turned himself in at the state police barracks in Bethany at 9:30 a.m. Friday. State police said he was charged with three counts of making illegal contributions to a political committee and three counts of corrupt practices. He was released on $50,000 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned in state court in Hartford on Oct. 24.

Boughton said Friday that his campaign staff had no way of knowing that third-party donors were acting as conduits for Galante contributions.

"We've accepted thousands of donations from thousands of contributors and we assume that the name on the check is the person that donated the money," Boughton said. "In fact, we send a personal thank-you letter to each person. I was absolutely unaware that there was anything wrong with any donations."

As Danbury's mayor, Boughton has worked closely with Galante, whose network of trash-related businesses is a major presence in the city. In particular, the Boughton administration worked with Galante on issues related to the rehabilitation of a city ice rink where Galante's minor league professional hockey team, the Danbury Trashers, played. Boughton dismissed local critics who said the city bent rules to rush approval of an occupancy permit for the rink. Boughton also said he is not close to Galante socially.

"I'm sure he has donated or bought a ticket to some campaign event of mine in the past," Boughton said. "But he's donated to lots of politicians all over the state, from Joe Lieberman's presidential campaign to small-town municipal elections."

Cappiello, who is running for U.S. Congress in the 5th District, said Thursday that he accepted checks personally from a Galante associate and acknowledged giving bottles of wine to Galante and the associate in appreciation. He said he was not aware the checks were illegal at the time, but he reported them to authorities after becoming concerned upon reading a Courant story in June about Galante's contributions to DeLuca.

Democrats and Republicans battled bitterly Friday over the potential political fallout for Cappiello, a Danbury Republican who is challenging U.S. Rep. Christopher Murphy, D-5th District.

The Democrats charged that the issue would clearly hurt Cappiello politically, while Republicans downplayed the matter and said it would be forgotten when voters cast their ballots in November 2008 - 13 months away. The state Democratic chairwoman, Nancy DiNardo, demanded Friday that Cappiello return the "tainted campaign cash immediately," but called a reporter less than an hour later to say she had just learned that the political action committee had already donated all of the money to charity.

Cappiello said in a telephone interview that the PAC donated the money over the past month and a half, including $2,500 to St. Jude hospital in Tennessee and $2,500 to actor Paul Newman's Hole In The Wall Gang Camp, a well-known charity in Ashford.

"Once the red flag went up, I did what I thought was the right thing," Cappiello said. "I can't see into the future [regarding the congressional race]. All I know is I will be able to run on my record in Hartford."

Cappiello said he could not have known in advance about Galante's actions. In the same way, Cappiello said, Murphy could not have known about one of his contributors, Jeffrey Bourke, who pleaded guilty last week to embezzling nearly $2 million from his employer, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield.

A Murphy spokeswoman declined to comment on Galante's contributions to Cappiello. But longtime Democratic political strategist Roy Occhiogrosso said the Galante situation could only hurt Cappiello in a tough race against an incumbent.

"He already is taking on a difficult task, and this will not make it any easier," said Occhiogrosso, who is not working for Murphy. "If most people in the district don't know you, and the only thing they read about you is you're attached to Galante and Lou DeLuca, it's not good for you. If this were a one-day story and it went away, it probably wouldn't be that bad. This is not a one-day story, and it's not going away. ... There's never a good time for this to happen if you're a candidate. Period."

On the other end of the political spectrum, Republican State Chairman Christopher Healy said he believes the Galante story will fade away, adding that Murphy has been involved in questionable matters, too.

"Chris Murphy's MoveOn.org blood money is a lot worse than what has come out about Sen. Cappiello," said Healy. He was referring to television commercials last year by the liberal organization against then-Congresswoman Nancy Johnson, portraying her as having been caught "red-handed" for one of her votes in Congress. One of the ads connected Johnson to convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff, though there was no connection. Murphy defeated Johnson in the campaign.

Healy added that he is not worried about any political fallout.

"I'm very confident this will all be forgotten very quickly," Healy said. "This is an inside baseball story that doesn't get to first base."

DeLuca said through his lawyer that he did not knowingly accept illegal contributions and knows of no one who is accusing him of doing so.

The filing of campaign finance charges should have a minimal legal impact on Galante, who already faces substantial prison time if convicted of an array of federal racketeering, tax and other offenses.

Galante is accused in a federal indictment, returned in June 2005, of using New York mob muscle to carve up the western Connecticut trash business and inflate prices. He denies the charges and is scheduled to be tried in a year.

Galante's lawyer, Hugh Keefe, called the campaign finance charges, brought by state prosecutors, relatively minor.

"I'm not sure what the motive of the prosecutors is and was in bringing it in view of the pending federal case," Keefe said.

DeLuca also faces potential political problems as a result of the Galante contributions. His seat in the Senate already is in jeopardy following the disclosure that he asked Galante to "pay a visit" to a man he said was abusing his granddaughter. Additionally, DeLuca's campaigns have benefited from thousands of dollars in Galante contributions.

The threatened visit never took place, but DeLuca was convicted in June of conspiracy to commit threatening. He is scheduled to appear Monday before a special legislative committee that will recommend to the full Senate whether he should be expelled from the state legislature or otherwise sanctioned.

Grief Over Gun Permits

Delays In Renewals, Appeals Lead To Suit

By TRACY GORDON FOX | Courant Staff Writer
October 8, 2007
James Goldberg was never in trouble with the law, never even had a traffic ticket. And he had no difficulty obtaining a gun permit to carry a pistol to his job as night manager of a liquor store for protection.

So when Glastonbury police seized Goldberg's gun and revoked his permit - following his arrest on charges of breach of peace June 21 at Chili's restaurant after an employee complained about seeing the gun under his T-shirt - friends and family, even the Wethersfield police chief who signed off on the gun permit, figured it was a misunderstanding that would be quickly corrected.

The misdemeanor charge was dismissed about a month later in Superior Court in Manchester, leaving Goldberg, 29, with a clean record. But he will have to wait until May 14, 2009, for a hearing before the Board of Firearms Permit examiners, a civilian board that hears appeals on revoked or denied gun permits.

Goldberg, who has hired an attorney and plans to file a federal lawsuit over the delay, is not alone.

In fact, M. Peter Kuck, secretary of the Board of Firearms Permit Examiners, who was appointed by Gov. M. Jodi Rell for the firearms permit board, has filed his own federal lawsuit against the state police, saying that even he could not have his permit renewed in a timely manner. He cites an average delay of 17 to 20 months and sometimes up to three years that he and others have to wait for a hearing.

Kuck blames the State Police Special License and Firearms unit for mismanagement, arrogance and attempting to create its own laws on gun permits. The unit, composed of troopers, is responsible for the issuance of state pistol permits, oversight and regulation of firearm sale transactions, and issuance of licenses.

When a permit has been denied or revoked by police, a gun owner can go before the seven-member civilian board of firearms permit examiners, a kind of last resort to get a permit. About 300 cases are brought to the board each year. The case load increased dramatically after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, according to records.

Both Kuck and Goldberg are claiming a violation of due process rights for citizens seeking gun permits, a frustrating problem that has in some cases put careers on hold as people wait for months to get a hearing before the review board.

Even though Kuck is one of those board members responsible for the permits of others, he cannot get his own permit renewed until he goes for a hearing Nov. 13, 2008.

"It is not only him, but a lot of people, and we don't even know how many at this point," said Rachel Baird, Kuck's attorney. "It is clear that his due process rights were being violated."

"Since the complaint has been filed, additional information has come to light that will require amending the complaint and adding new defendants," Baird said.

Standing up for his civil rights has not made Kuck popular with the board. He recently learned that there has been an attempt to remove him from the board because his actions were costing the state money.

"We have tried to involve the governor's office to have him removed, but the statutes [on appointments] tie their hands," Susan Mazzoccoli, executive director of the civilian board, wrote in an e-mail to an employee of another state agency.

Abuse Of Power?

Scott Hoffman, owner of Hoffman's Gun Center in Newington, said the waiting time and hassles are a constant complaint with his customers.

"There is no due process," Hoffman said, adding that the state police firearms unit is understaffed and under-funded to do the job. "It's nuts, completely nuts."

He said he is glad that two gun owners are finally taking the state and the review board to task. "It's like fighting city hall. It's a very hard thing to do. You have to have the money and the stomach to do it."

Kuck, a member of the Ye Connecticut Gun Guild Inc., submitted his application to the Department of Public Safety to renew his permit on March 19, prior to its April 16 expiration date. But state police demanded that he submit a birth certificate or U.S. passport for the renewal, saying one of those forms of ID have been required for renewal since Sept. 11, 2001.

Kuck claims the state police firearms unit has abused its authority by punishing gun owners with long delays and implementing policies that have no basis in law. Kuck says the Department of Public Safety "caused the backlog of cases by not reviewing, processing, and preparing the appeal cases in a reasonable and timely manner for the board's review," according to the suit.

According to Goldberg, he left his job as the night manager of a liquor store on June 21, and went to the takeout section of Chili's to wait for his order. He was wearing camouflage pants and a T-shirt that covered the weapon, which showed when he went to reach for his wallet. An employee became alarmed and called police.

Officers arrived and pushed Goldberg against the wall, while customers and wait staff watched. Goldberg, the soft-spoken son of a 30-year police veteran, said he calmly told the officers he had a permit to carry. They checked it out and found that he did. But because the waitress was alarmed he was arrested for breach of peace. While Connecticut law is silent on concealment of a weapon, many police officers believe the weapon must be hidden from view because of the alarm it causes.

"I have no problems with the officers' actions with regard to the incident," Glastonbury Police Chief Thomas Sweeney said.

But Goldberg, who was working toward becoming an executive security specialist and who would carry a gun as part of the job, said, "This whole situation is making me sick to my stomach. I can't go forward in my career."

State police acknowledge the delay and say they have made some changes. They deny the firearms unit has done anything wrong.

"I will say generically we disagree with the allegations in the complaint, and we expect it will be handled by the attorney general's office," Public Safety Commissioner John A. Danaher III said. "Our people are doing their job correctly."

Lt. J. Paul Vance, a state police spokesman, said guns are not arbitrarily seized, but are taken for good reason. He said the state police must provide information to the civilian board, which hold hearings "that are like a mini trial."

"They are a volunteer board. They can only hear so many cases."

Number Of Appeals Rising

From July 1, 2005, to June 30, 2006, there were 329 appeals filed to the civilian board. Between 2006 and 2007 during the same period, there were 338 cases. This year, it is predicted there will be 398 cases, Mazzoccoli said.

Mazzoccoli attributes the delays to a number of factors, including understaffing of the state police.

"I think it's a combination of everything," she said.

The delays were substantiated in a report by state auditors, who in 2005 audited the previous two years, 2003 and 2004, and found that state police "contributed to the backlog by not reviewing and settling a majority of the cases until the month of the scheduled hearing."

Auditors recommended that the civilian review board should ensure timely hearings by increasing the frequency of hearings or the number of appeals scheduled for each meeting. The board meets about once a month, and its members are volunteers. There are about 20 to 40 cases a month on the docket, but they only hear about a dozen.

Regarding the backlog, Danaher said he has taken steps to ease the delay, but would not discuss them because of the pending legal action.

Goldberg and Kuck also have found a mutual ally in Edward Peruta, a free-lance journalist who has been helping them research the issue after they contacted him. Peruta has spent hours on the phone and digging through materials, and has offered to help finance Goldberg's lawsuit.

"I have known James Goldberg since the day he was born. Everybody's rights are being violated when the government violates his rights, and they happened to pick the wrong person," he said. "There are people who deserve to have their permit taken away. James is not one of them."

Gun Board Decides To Halt Decisions

Gun Board Decides To Halt Decisions

By TRACY GORDON FOX | Courant Staff Writer
October 12, 2007

MIDDLETOWN - The Board of Firearms Permit Examiners refused to hear any gun permit cases at its regular meeting Thursday, saying a lawsuit brought against the state police by one of its own board members may constitute a conflict of interest.

M. Peter Kuck, a member of the board, recently filed a federal lawsuit against the state police, claiming that his gun permit was not renewed in a timely manner and that he and others have had an average delay of 17 to 20 months to wait for a hearing.

In the suit, Kuck blames the state police Special License and Firearms unit for mismanagement, arrogance and attempting to create its own laws on gun permits.

The board's chairman, Christopher Adams, acknowledged that postponing October's meeting and the 12 cases scheduled would only add to the backlog, which he called a "serious problem." But in a four-page statement he read at the meeting, Adams said that "this is a situation that calls for extreme caution out of fairness for all involved."

Adams said the board would have to wait for an opinion from Attorney General Richard Blumenthal on what to do after Kuck sued the state police over the gun permit process, and whether Kuck should be allowed to continue to serve on the board.

Kuck, who had been secretary, was not re-elected to the position Thursday when the board voted for new officers.

Kuck's attorney, Rachel Baird, said the board and two state troopers are trying to remove Kuck from his position. "We have e-mails that they have been trying to get rid of him well before this," she said.

Adams said board members warned Kuck in September that the lawsuit "created a potential conflict of interest on his part, which might be used to call into question his impartiality in adjudicating claims."

Kuck, a member of Ye Connecticut Gun Guild Inc., submitted his application to the Department of Public Safety to renew his permit on March 19, prior to its April 16 expiration date. But state police said he must submit a birth certificate or U.S. passport for the renewal, saying one of those forms of ID have been required for renewal since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Kuck says the state police firearms unit has abused its authority by punishing gun owners with long delays and making policies that have no basis in law.

Kuck's claims are echoed by James Goldberg of Glastonbury, who also plans to file a lawsuit over the long delay to get his gun permit back. Goldberg's permit was revoked after he was charged with breach of peace when a restaurant employee called police after seeing his gun under his shirt. The charges were dropped in court.

In a statement of his own, Kuck said that the lawsuit filed last month "is not about me, but about all the appellants who have sought relief from the board."

"As a member of the board and its secretary, my priority is to hear and decide the cases that have been prepared for presentation and are scheduled for hearing before the board today," he said.

The board's next meeting is scheduled Nov. 8.

Baird said the board has known since Sept. 18 about the lawsuit and questioned why it hadn't called a special meeting before Thursday to discuss the issue and vote to get the attorney general's guidance.

"They wait till Oct. 11 when everyone shows up. People paid their attorneys to be there," Baird said. "They staged this thing to turn public opinion against Peter Kuck for standing up for the rights of the appellants."

Attorney Ralph D. Sherman had several clients waiting for their hearing, who were turned away Thursday.

"They have already been waiting a year and a half," he said, adding that the delay would affect employment for at least one of his clients. "They are disappointed."
