Interesting Film ...

Who Killed John O'Neill? (911, conspiracy, ONeill, Loose Change)
a dead art film
1 hr 40 min 23 sec - Jun 1, 2006

If you believe the media, John P. O'Neill was simply another innocent victim killed in the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center. But you don't need much imagination to suspect something deeper was at work.

Clearly, O'Neill was a man Osama bin Laden wanted dead. O'Neill had been a Deputy Director of the FBI, and Osama bin Laden's main pursuer in the US government. O'Neill had investigated the bombings of the World Trade Center in 1993, a US base in Saudi Arabia in 1996, the US embassies in Nairobi and Dar-Es-Salaam in 1998, and the USS Cole last year.

But once the first plane hit the North Tower, Osama bin Laden wouldn't be the only man to profit from O'Neill's death. At the moment of impact, O'Neill became the man who knew too much. Just two weeks, TWO WEEKS, prior to the attack, O'Neill had left his job with the FBI. O'Neill had quit because he believed that the Bush administration had stymied the intelligence agency's investigations on terrorism. O'Neill charged that it had done so even as it bargained with the Taliban on handing over of Osama bin Laden in exchange for political recognition and economic aid. In the ultimate irony, O'Neill had gone public with these charges at the same time that he was leaving the FBI to become the head of security at the World Trade Center.

Prosecuting Bush and Cheney?

Kym L. Worthy. Wayne County Prosecutor in the Detroit Michigan Mayor public corruption prosecution has my vote to go after Richard Bruce "Dick" Cheney and George W. Bush for perjury, obstruction of justice, racketeering, treason, and other charges. This is why, I think she'd be great:

DETROIT (AP) -- Kwame Kilpatrick, a one-time rising star in American urban politics who embraced his "Hip-Hop Mayor" image as Detroit's youngest elected leader, was charged Monday with perjury and other counts after sexually explicit text messages surfaced that appear to contradict his sworn denials of an affair with a top aide.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy also charged the charismatic and popular yet polarizing 37-year-old mayor with obstruction of justice and misconduct in office. [more]

The Informant System

It corrupts cops, and increases crime. The informant system needs to be scrapped. There needs to be Civilian Oversight of police.

“Informants”: Willoughby Forged Our Names
[New Haven Independent, Connecticut]

by Melissa Bailey

One woman, a supposed confidential informant in three homicides, told police that a detective forged her signature when filling out receipts for money — money she never got.

The allegation is one of several startling revelations in a series of previously sealed arrest warrants in the case of ex-Detective Clarence Willoughby (pictured).

Willoughby, a 24-year veteran of the force, resigned shortly before turning himself over to police on Feb. 6 on larceny and forgery charges. He is accused of pocketing thousands of dollars in informant money in four incidents spanning from 2003 to 2007; he has pleaded not guilty and retained defense attorney Norm Pattis.

Four affidavits filed in Willoughby’s case, previously sealed, have been opened to public view.

Click here to read the text of one of the affidavits, in which three “informants,” for whom Willoughby signed out informant money, testify they never cooperated and never got paid. (The Independent has redacted informants’ names, which appear in full on the documents.)

The charges cover $5,300 in informant funds spanning four incidents. One was a “shooting spree” in the Hill neighborhood from July 11 to 12, 2004. The three others are homicides: Herbert Fields’s death on Aug. 1, 2006; Robert Bennett’s on Nov. 27, 2006; and Domingo Rodriguez’s on July 12, 2006.

In each of those four incidents, Willoughby signed out informant money to pay one woman, Confidential Informant (CI) 01-02. He signed out over $3,000 for her, but according to the affidavits, she didn’t see a penny.

When internal affairs investigators interviewed the woman, she denied having worked on the cases, and said the signature by her CI number was not hers.

The supposed informant told police “she has lived out of state for the past five years and has not worked for the New Haven Police Department at any point during that time,” investigators wrote.

Other allegations revealed in the affidavits:

• Willoughby said he lied about an informant’s name because he didn’t want Lt. Billy White to know who the informant was. Willoughby later identified the informant, whom investigators interviewed. The informant first told police he was never paid more than $500 of the $1,500 he was supposed to get. Then he changed his story, saying he had been paid.

• Willoughby refers to a female informant as a “he” and to a male informant as a “she” when describing what information informants gave.

• Three of the four police reports make no reference to information obtained by a CI, even though Willoughby signed out informant money in each case.

Willoughby’s troubles are spilling over to state prosecutors, as his credibility is questioned in cases that rest on his work. Click here and here for the two latest examples, as reported by the Register’s Randall Beach.

A Typical Connecticut Scenario?

[from the New Haven Independent]

Eavesdrop On The Cop & The Bondsman

by Staff | March 20, 2008 2:29 PM | | Comments (2)

Read the transcript of the secretly recorded phone conversation that made Paul Jacobs claim he’s innocent after all in a corruption case.

Jacobs is one of three members of a prominent New Haven family’s bond business caught up in a bribery scandal involving the New Haven police department. Jacobs reluctantly entered a guilty plea in that case, but has now changed his mind and wants to plead innocent.

(Click here for background on the Jacobs case. Click here to read Bill Kaempffer’s original Register article about Paul Jacobs’ change of heart.)

Jacobs bases his pitch to change his plea on the transcript of a conversation between him and an undercover state cop, Sgt. Blake Stine. Jacobs said his previous lawyer failed to show him the transcript. The transcript, according to Jacobs’ new lawyer, gives him a crucial out: It allegedly shows that the undercover cop wasn’t claiming to be on the job when he was receiving money from Jacobs to help track down a client.

If he had known about that conversation from the start, Jacobs would never have pleaded guilty, he said.

Read the court filings to judge for yourself; comment below. The transcript can be found here. It runs 27 pages and includes several phone conversations, including one in which Stine caught Jacobs on his cell during a family vacation at Universal Studios.

The key line:

Stine: I’ll find him for you regardless uh, I’m just trying to figure out the best way, cause I, you know I’ve got some, some downtime coming up in the office so I want to start uh, you know, hunting this guy down for ya’ uh.

The question: Did Jacobs therefore believe that he was not hiring an on-duty cop to track down a missing client? And if so, is that a crucial distinction based on previous court rulings and the city’s police union contract?

Jacobs’ new lawyer’s legal argument can be found here. The new attorney is Jon L. Schoenhorn. Jacobs’ previous lawyer was prominent defense attorney Anthony Bowman.

Back, With A Big Payday
Appointee Left Job In '04 After Ethics Complaint

By JON LENDER | Courant Staff Writer
March 22, 2008

In late 2004, Christopher F. Oliveira quit a job as a $43,466-a-year family relations counselor trainee at the state's judicial branch soon after being accused of misusing office equipment for political purposes.

Two months ago, Gov. M. Jodi Rell appointed Oliveira to a major post as a $121,615-a-year family magistrate, making him one of nine quasi-judicial officers deciding cases involving paternity and child support.

How did Oliveira — with the disciplinary case in his past, newly obtained documents now show — get to this high state post, at triple the salary of his previous job, in the same judicial branch where he got in trouble before?

Rell's office offered few answers — although gubernatorial press secretary Chris Cooper said Friday night: "No information on this matter was included in the background report" done in connection with Oliveira's appointment.

Asked if Oliveira failed to disclose the episode, or if Rell still believes he meets the standards of ethics that she has espoused publicly, Cooper declined to comment further.

No such questions had arisen on Jan. 4, when the Republican governor announced her appointment of Oliveira, saying she was confident he would be "an excellent Family Support Magistrate." State statutes are not detailed about the qualifications needed to become magistrate — just be a lawyer at least five years and "be experienced in the field of family law."

"Chris is passionate about public service and the law. He is a family law specialist who knows all about the day-to-day operations at the Family Magistrate Division," Rell said in the release.

Until his appointment, the 37-year-old lawyer held the longtime political roles of Republican chairman in Old Lyme and member of the Republican State Central Committee. He also waged a sometimes-rough campaign — unsuccessfully — as the Republican challenger against incumbent Democratic state Sen. Andrea L. Stillman of Waterford in 2006.

During the campaign, Oliveira raised an ethics question against Stillman. He charged that she didn't help constituents fight New London's controversial eminent domain efforts because of a conflict of interest: Stillman co-owns a family business that sold office supplies to New London and its economic development corporation.

Oliveira, it turns out, had an ethics issue of his own involving office supplies, and it closely preceded his abrupt departure in late 2004 from the job as a family relations trainee he had held for less than a year at the Middletown courthouse.

On Oct. 25, 2004, a letter went out to Oliveira from a personnel administrator saying that a citizen's complaint had been received "regarding your use of Judicial Branch equipment for personal/political business," according to documents obtained by the Courant under a Freedom of Information Act request.

An internal investigation indicated that he had apparently violated policies against political activity. "This activity appears to warrant discipline," human resources manager Joel C. Riley wrote, adding that a "pre-disciplinary hearing" had been scheduled for Oct. 28, 2004.

Notes taken by an official during an investigative interview and subsequent hearing indicate that Oliveira apparently acknowledged using office equipment and materials for political and personal purposes on a limited basis, as he described it.

"Apologizes for personal/political involvement," one note says. Others say: "Does get calls during the day" and "Work Station — Campaign related work ... Written letter to editor or response — use of computer & printer." Another note mentioned "50 faxes," with no elaboration, and was followed by "Oliveira's response: Recognizes the seriousness of events and is happy to reimburse the cost."

Less than two weeks after the hearing, Oliveira submitted his resignation, and no further action was taken. "I have chosen to pursue a career in the private practice of law," he wrote in a Nov. 9, 2004, letter to Riley, "and I must accordingly depart the Branch."

His resignation was effective six days later, and, for the last four years until his appointment, he maintained a solo practice in his Old Lyme home. He has said that it focused on family law and mediation.

No more information on the disciplinary episode is available, and Oliveira refuses to clarify things. Weeks ago, he said through a judicial branch spokesperson that he would not comment for this story. He maintained that stance this week.

Part of the judicial branch's file on Oliveira was withheld from The Courant after he signed a form March 10 saying its release would invade his privacy. No objection was noted, however, to the release of a favorable performance evaluation in August 2004 that called him a "quick study whose knowledge base is expanding at an admirable pace."

Rell's release described magistrates as "quasi-judicial officers" who "perform some judicial functions." They sit in state courthouses and handle child support cases that include both welfare recipients and people asking for help from the state to collect child support.

The magistrates establish, modify and enforce orders for child support and spousal support, and they also hear paternity cases. Oliveira sits Mondays at the Hartford Superior Courthouse on Washington Street under the current schedule and divides his time Tuesday through Friday between courthouses in Norwich and New Haven.

Cops, nationwide, furious about Free Speech and the Internet

Rate-My-Cop: New Website Has Police Furious

Log on at 6:30 p.m. Pacific to see what police drama-inspired steps deputies are taking to battle the website.

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS) ― Police agencies from coast to coast are furious with a new website on the internet. has the names of thousands of officers, and many believe it is putting them in danger.

Officer Hector Basurto, the vice president of the Latino Police Officers Association, recently learned about the site. "I'd like to see it gone," he said.

"Having a website like this out there puts a lot of law enforcement in danger," he said. "It exposes us out there."

Kevin Martin, the vice president of the San Francisco Police Officers Association, agrees. "Will they be able to access our home addresses, home phone numbers, marital status, whether or not we have children? That's always a big concern for us," he said.

Creators of the site say no personal information will be on the site. They gathered officers' names, which are public information, from more than 450 police agencies nationwide. Some listings also have badge numbers along with the officer's names.

Rebecca Costell says, in a statement, that the site helps people rate more than 130,000 officers by rating them on authority, fairness and satisfaction.

She adds, "Our website's purpose is to break the stereotype that people have that cops are all bad by having officers become responsible for their actions."

The site is so new that many Bay Area police agencies are not aware of it. San Francisco police say they have no connection with the site and would not take any of its comments seriously.

Police associations that represent more than 100,000 police and sheriffs in California are now seeking legislation to see if they can eliminate the site altogether. They say that officers who are rated face unfair maligning without any opportunity to defend themselves.

The CPCA will work with other law enforcement associations to pursue legislation to stop the website. Constitutional attorney and former San Francisco Police Commissioner Peter Keane said eliminating the site is difficult.

"Any kind of publication is protected as long as it's not publishing privileged information," he said.

The First Amendment would be the site's protection.

Rell Holds Emergency Meeting With State Police Managers

By TRACY GORDON FOX | Courant Staff Writer
1:37 PM EDT, March 10, 2008

Gov. M. Jodi Rell today ordered more than 60 state police managers to the governor's residence to speak to them about recent allegations about the harassment of whistleblowers within the agency, among other problems.

All managers who hold the rank of lieutenant and above were ordered to the emergency meeting. They were not told the location of the meeting until today.

The meeting lasted 15 minutes, and Public Safety Commissioner John A. Danaher III said afterwards that Rell "wanted to refocus on the mission of the Department of Public Safety.''

Cruisers, marked and unmarked, lined a side street near the governor's residence, and troopers, some in uniform, some in suits and ties, walked together through the gates.

It is not the first time Rell has spoken to managers about problems within the agency. Last year, after allegations of racism arose within the department, Rell went to the state police academy in Meriden, to speak to all the managers.

Key Committee To Hold Hearing

Testimony About Conduct Of State Police Will Be Heard By State Lawmakers

January 13, 2007

By CHRISTOPHER KEATING, Hartford Courant, Capitol Bureau Chief, The Hartford Courant

A key legislative committee will hold a hearing on two of the most embarrassing issues facing the state police: a scathing internal affairs report on trooper misconduct and the controversial arrest of a political activist during the governor's inaugural parade.

State Police Commissioner Leonard Boyle will testify on both issues Jan. 23 before the General Assembly's Public Safety Committee. The hearing is open to the public, but testimony will be limited to those asked to appear.

Attorney General Richard Blumenthal will discuss a 207-page report his office co-authored on the internal affairs unit, which detailed allegations of trooper drug use, sexual abuse, excessive force, family violence and association with prostitutes.

Four law-enforcement officials will talk about the arrest of Kenneth Krayeske, a political activist who was handcuffed during the Jan. 3 inaugural parade and charged with breach of peace and interfering with police.

Before the parade, Krayeske had been identified by state police as a possible threat to Gov. M. Jodi Rell. He had confronted her during last fall's election campaign at a Glastonbury parade and written critically about her recently on his website.

But Krayeske's supporters say he was simply taking photographs of Rell during the Hartford parade and did nothing that could be deemed a threat. His attorney, Norman Pattis, said Krayeske took at least 50 photographs during the public parade, including 16 of Rell as she walked along the route near Bushnell Park.

Pattis said he hoped to attend the hearing - which he described as a "show trial" - but is scheduled to be in court that day on another matter. A veteran trial attorney who is known as one of the state's best defense attorneys, Pattis remained confident about Krayeske's prospects.

"If this case goes to trial and I lose it, I will shave my head on the steps of the state Supreme Court," said Pattis, who for years has worn a long ponytail.

Krayeske has limited his comments on the advice of his attorney, and Pattis said that Krayeske "will not speak anywhere until he speaks to a jury."

One police official described the Krayeske arrest as "a train wreck."

As lawmakers have publicly criticized the arrest, some lawmakers have been jockeying behind the scenes over which committee would hold hearings.

Some pushed for the judiciary or the government administration and elections committee to conduct the inquiry because they are deemed among the most aggressive in the legislature. The public safety committee finally was chosen because it retains jurisdiction over law-enforcement issues.

The hearing will be conducted by state Sen. Andrea Stillman, D-Waterford, and state Rep. Stephen Dargan, D-West Haven, the committee's co-chairs.

"If something happened to the governor, there would have been criticism that law enforcement didn't do enough to protect the governor," Dargan said Friday night. "It's like a Monday morning quarterback. We want to make sure that law enforcement is not handcuffed in the job they're supposed to do."

The Long Arm Of The List

Targeting People Who May Be Politically Disruptive Strikes At Heart Of Political Freedom

January 14, 2007

"License and registration, please?" The officer stands beside your car. Behind you, his cruiser lights are flashing. Other motorists slow down to gawk. Your heart pounds.

"What have I done?" you ask. The officer explains that you ran a stop sign several blocks back. You never saw the sign, but no matter. It will be a small fine and off you will go. Everyone makes simple mistakes from time to time.

The officer takes your license and registration to his car. He enters your name into a database linked to his car by computer. A message flashes across his screen:




Your plans for the evening have changed. You are now on a federal radar, listed and tagged as a potential threat. Your name is part of the FBI's Violent Gang and Terrorist Organization File (VGTOF). Will you go home, or to a jail cell?

How did your name get on the list? You don't know. You may never know. Perhaps you were seen at an antiwar rally. Or perhaps you contributed money to a candidate or cause that some anonymous soul views as suspect. Like it or not, however, every law enforcement officer in the country now need only log onto his computer to learn that you are a suspect.

We saw how innocent acts become crimes at the inaugural parade for Gov. M. Jodi Rell this month. Ken Krayeske, a free-lance journalist, law student and former campaign director for Green Party gubernatorial candidate Cliff Thornton, was arrested there and charged with breach of peace and interfering with a police officer. Why? He was taking pictures of the parade.

Of course, that is no crime. But before the parade began, Hartford police officers were told by the Connecticut Intelligence Center and the Connecticut State Police Central Intelligence Unit that a number of political activists posed a threat to the governor.

These intelligence groups are part of the new state-federal security network that is sharing information about all manner of things that can go bump in the night. The state police had photographs of the activists listed as threats. Krayeske's picture was among them.

Ken Krayeske was not arrested for taking pictures. He was arrested because he was on a list of potential threats. His innocent conduct took on a sinister cast when viewed through the secret lens of suspicion.

The state police deny maintaining any such lists. I suspect the denials are a mere linguistic trick. The state may not maintain a list. The lists of who is naughty and who is nice are most likely in federal hands. State lawmakers can hold all the hearings they want in Hartford to find out about these lists and they will learn almost nothing. State law enforcement officials are merely participating in federally managed and funded programs designed, we are told, to protect the security of this, our blessed homeland.

When state lawmakers try to subpoena federal officials, those subpoenas will be quashed in the name of national security or some other legal devicethat makes the federal government a distant, and sacrosanct, overlord.

VGTOF, for example, was created in 1995 in response to the Oklahoma City bombing. It is managed by the FBI. The list initially was focused on individuals believed to be members of groups posing a threat to the United States. But in recent years, the list has expanded. Not long ago, mere protesters against the war in Iraq were placed on the list. A federal audit of VGTOF in 2005 found an error rate of 40 percent based on a small sample of records. Are you on the VGTOF list?

These lists are dangerous and easily misused. Was Ken Krayeske arrested because he had threatened to attend the gubernatorial ball and protest? Or because he once questioned why Gov. Rell refused to demand that gubernatorial debates be open to all candidates?

I did not pledge allegiance to a national-security state. We proclaim in the federal Constitution's preamble that "we the people" created government for limited ends, to assure our life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

"Live free or die," read license plates in New Hampshire. These are words to live by. When did we yield the freedom to be let alone to bureaucrats who decide without meaningful review who is and is not a threat? More important, who regulates the men and women sitting up nights deciding who among us to include on lists that can transform innocent conduct into crimes?

Asking a Governor to fix a Police State:

To Governor M Jodi Rell March 9, 2008


CT State Police Covert Ops

I contacted State Senators, Kissel and Guglielmo, both Republicans like yourself, Governor M. Jodi Rell. I had complained about the lack of protection and service of the Connecticut State Police, Troop C. I talked about their rudeness, threats, and refusal to investigate and take complaints. State Police were out to make sure I lost my job, my home, my family, and that I was railroaded to prison for complaining. I believe that if an investigation is done, illegal, and Unconstitutional practices of the Connecticut State Police will be exposed.

Felons with encouragement from police were threatening and terrorizing me at both my homes in Somersville and Stafford Springs, Connecticut. State Police were telling town officers that they weren’t allowed to protect and serve me according to a Somers officer. I had to run from my vehicle, keys in hand, and get into my property not to be attacked.

I told Kissel about the violent felon drug dealer camping in my Somersville back yard, 18 School St., parking his unregistered vehicles in my yard and driveway telling me I was not allowed to use my driveway and backyard, and that I would be beaten if I said anything. Troop C officers refused to help.

I told Senator Guglielmo about a violent felon burglar, drug abuser who was threatening my life along with teen and other drug dealers in Stafford Springs at 3 and 5 Church St. Troop C said they would only arrest me and refused to take complaints.

I didn’t make it one evening, so it was an excuse to put me in prison for resisting being beaten up on my own property. My attacker was never arrested. A judge I tried to remove for years for bias in civil cases, who I had lodged complaints against, fixed the excuse that was my criminal trial. Why should tax dollars be used to take honest, productive, home owning, taxpayers that are raising families by non-productive, criminal parasites?

Don Christmas of Enfield, CT, also a landlord, that also was out to sue police and that had complained as I had, was attacked by a 14 year old prostitute girlfriend of a police officer. Only Donny faced prison and losing everything for being attacked and yelled at on his property in front of his family. The only reason Donny didn’t go to prison as citizens from all over the country were calling and writing into police and the courts.

Chris Kennedy contacted your legal staffer Kevin Rasch, complaining about Connecticut State Police and Judge Jonathan Kaplan. The next day Chris Kennedy was arrested and facing $500,000 for having accidentally checked the wrong box on a financial form!

200 Troopers so abused by the Connecticut State Police brass showed up at the Connecticut legislature. If police are so abused by police, what about citizens? When will we get justice? The Connecticut courts are only part of the corruption, abuse, and retaliation system. If you report felonies to an official, and if they don’t report the felonies to the proper investigating authorities aren’t the officials guilty of felonies?

The Trooper 1 helicopter pilot made terrorist threats to kill police officer and blow up aircraft and was still allowed to fly a police helicopter. Other officers are threatening death by leaving each other bullets, and even putting rattraps in each other’s mailboxes.

I have posted a video where a police informant under oath tells how he attacks citizens so only the citizen is arrested, terrorizes them out of towns, and only the citizen is arrested. It sounds like the Connecticut State Police are more likely to terrorize citizens, doing more damage to America and Freedom, than any supposed terrorist coming in to the US from the Middle East.

Connecticut State Police [Domestic Spying] are using tax dollars to pay criminals to commit crime. They are tapping phones, hacking computers, stalking and terrorizing citizens, breaking the laws, ripping tax payers off, committing fraud, raping citizens, assaulting citizens, out to cause deaths, break up of families, obstruct justice, are racketeering, and are more of an armed political gang of thugs, a street gang and Mafia-like organization, more so than any law enforcement organization.

Will you please look into my case and see that trial transcripts from my court case are examined and that Troopers Langlois and Amaral are investigated for committing perjury in my case?

Is O'Connor a shoe in for his "cover up" abilities?

file photo Kevin J. O'Connor
[click here] for my email to US Senator Patrick Leahy on O'Connor

O'Connor's wife worked in the former Connecticut Governor John G. Rowland's office and had a lake cottage next to the Rowland, infamous one, improved with bribe money. Did O'Connor get improvements on his cottage too, with Rowland bribe money?

Clearing Path For O'Connor

March 7, 2008

WASHINGTON — - Connecticut's chief law-enforcement official, U.S. Attorney Kevin J. O'Connor, awaits one final Senate vote before he can assume the job as the No. 3 official at the Department of Justice.

The nomination of the Connecticut lawyer, who has shot up quickly through the federal ranks, was approved Thursday morning by the Senate's judiciary committee.

That leaves a final vote on the Senate floor before O'Connor can become the nation's associate attorney general.

In that job, O'Connor, 40, would be directly responsible for 13 distinct divisions and offices and have some authority over five more.

His areas of control would include the civil division, tax division, antitrust, civil rights and the division for the environment and natural resources.

O'Connor would leave the Connecticut office he has run since 2002 to return to the department headquarters that he has sometimes split his time to serve.

He was appointed chief of staff to former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, who was finishing his time at the department.

Gonzales was replaced by Attorney General Michael Mukasey. O'Connor also served for a short time in 2007 as associate deputy attorney general.

It was unclear Thursday when the overall Senate's confirmation vote will be scheduled.

There has been no strong resistance to O'Connor's nomination during the confirmation process. A hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee last month seemed more congratulatory than confrontational.

The Department of Justice's No. 2 position was filled earlier this week by a Chicago federal judge, Mark R. Filip, also a relatively young 41.

With that move, and the potential that O'Connor will soon follow, the department has all-new leadership.

Carl Tobias, a law professor at the University of Richmond, said Congress seems to be loosening the logjam on confirmations. He sees O'Connor as part of the new era.

"There's been a lot of controversy at the Justice Department," Tobias said. "It'd be good to have him in place."

And the state gets something out of it, in Tobias' view. "It's good for Connecticut, too, to have somebody that high in the Justice Department. If there's something special going on, they have his ear."

My beef with O'Connor, Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, former Governor John G. Rowland, Governor M. Jodi Rell, Connecticut legislatators, and the Connecticut State Police is that they all seem to cover up and endorse retaliation against citizens that get in the way of the "Good Ole Boy" system.

For Rowland, Second Chance of a Lifetime

HE’S BACK John G. Rowland on the job as a Waterbury [Connecticut] official.
Published: February 24, 2008

THEY say there are no second acts in American life. They also say that you can’t go home again.

You probably don’t want to say either of those things around John G. Rowland, the former three-term governor of Connecticut who is trying to resurrect his career as the economic development coordinator for Waterbury, the city where he was born.

Mr. Rowland was hired for the job by Mayor Michael J. Jarjura, an appointment that didn’t make everybody happy. But more on that later.

For Mr. Rowland, 50, who assumed his new position on Feb. 1, the challenge is to rehabilitate his home city — and thus redeem himself. Mr. Rowland resigned his governorship in the face of a corruption investigation in 2004, pleaded guilty to one charge and spent 10 months in a federal correctional institution.

On a bitterly cold February morning, as he moved about his hometown, alternately walking or driving his Chevrolet Impala, the former governor expounded on his vision for the city. He stopped and chatted with at least 25 people over a three-hour period, from security guards and nuns to artists and community organizers to old friends and neighbors. He knew all of their names, and they knew his.

If there was a cloud hovering over his head, you would never know it. For a politician who was in a federal prison only a year ago, Mr. Rowland is an amazingly hopeful kind of a guy.

“It’s good to be home,” he said after exchanging bon mots with a police officer in front of the Palace Theater on Main Street. “He was two years behind me in school,” he added, referring to Holy Cross High School.

“This whole area, Main Street, was the pits of the city,” he continued. “You can’t believe how bad it was. Everything was vacant.”

Now a regional branch of the University of Connecticut sits on the former site of a decrepit department store. Across the street is the beautifully restored theater, a former vaudeville house, with its grand lobby, ornate domed ceiling and plush orchestra seats.

“My legacy as governor was UConn and the cities,” Mr. Rowland said. “This is my passion. When I was governor, I would call Waterbury the center of the universe.” During his two-plus terms as governor, investment in the University of Connecticut exceeded $2 billion. And restoring downtown theaters to their old splendor was a special interest of his administration.

“The idea is to get people downtown,” he said. For that you need something for them to come to, things to do. He cited a need for more restaurants. “My vision is to have an ESPN Zone in downtown Waterbury,” he said, referring to the national chain of sports bars. He would also like to see apartments and condominiums lining the blighted Naugatuck riverfront.

It may not be so easy. Like many industrial towns in the Central Naugatuck Valley that runs along Route 8, Waterbury, once known as the Brass City, has found itself caught in a long, downward economic spiral. The last brass factory closed in the 1970s. Waterbury remains a town of broken windows — block after block of red brick buildings, begrimed by time.

Here and there you see aimless young men in hoodies nonchalanting it on street corners. Waterbury has long been perceived as a dangerous place.

“The reality is that it’s safe,” Mr. Rowland said. “The problem is that perception is reality.”

Serious crimes are down to their lowest level since 1980, according to the Waterbury Police Department, with sharp declines in homicide and rape. (There were five homicides in 2007, in a city of about 107,000.)

Even though it has millions of square feet of factory space — in the sort of unused structures that artists, design firms and dot-com entrepreneurs have transformed throughout the Northeast — much of the soil around them has been contaminated, from the effluvia of generations of brass production, metal plating and other industrial uses.

“The folks you are going to get to live downtown are artist types,” Mr. Rowland said, but “the investment cost of bringing the old loft buildings up to code can be high.” He is working on expediting brownfield projects, an Environmental Protection Agency program that provides seed money for cleanup and reuse.

“It’s a work in progress,” Mr. Rowland said. “We’re hoping to get $75 million statewide freed up for remediation.”

On the plus side, Mr. Rowland notes, is Waterbury’s accessibility. The city sits at the junction of Routes 8 and 84 — 40 minutes from New Haven and Hartford, an hour and a half from New York. A prime area for development of warehouse-distribution businesses, Mr. Rowland said, is Freight Street, a kind of chain-link-fence no-man’s land right at the junction of Routes 8 and 84.

Waterbury also has a large pool of skilled and unskilled workers. The downtown area has been designated as an Information Technology Zone, with high-speed hookups. Real estate prices, both residential and commercial, are very affordable compared with, say, Stamford or lower Fairfield County.

After two weeks on the job, Mr. Rowland said he is getting 100 phone calls a week, many from developers wanting to buy in while the market is low. Unlike his days as governor, where he wielded a huge checkbook, he now has to rely on his skills at bringing people together and making things happen.

Mr. Rowland is being paid $95,000 in his new position, and editorialists around the state have been howling. Some have written that Waterbury is the last place on earth he should be working. However, others say that a Democrat in similar circumstances would be appearing on “Oprah.”

“It is not about the money,” said Mr. Rowland, a Republican appointed to the job by a Democratic mayor. “It’s the public service aspect. Absolutely, I think it has qualities of redemption. The city gets a second chance. I get a second chance.”

Legislating Fairness?

Should this be the insignia on Connecticut State Police badges and be substituted for the current Connecticut State Flag?

To: Tony Guglielmo and the Connecticut Public Safety Committee

I read in the Courant where gang members stabbed someone to death and got no jail time. I resisted being mugged on my own property and was given a year in prison. Do you see some disparity of justice here, and can I finally get some relief after living 6 years of living hell?

Before police conspired to torch my life, I came to you about removing Judge Jonathan Kaplan, prosecutor Keith Courier for threatening me with prosecution for evicting prostitute Lana Thompson (I played you the threats on tape she made to you) and informed you that police threatened me also, and since police had refused to serve Stafford citizens based on race, their occupation, or their lack of "connections", I proposed Civilian Oversight of Police.

Tony, you wrote me letters and signed them praising me for the letters to the editor that I were printed, the letter I wrote to Bush about being under siege as an investor in downtown America with the lack of adequate police and court protections, and for legislation I had proposed to you.

I later find out that if a citizen proposes legislation, writes letters to the editor critical of police, or proposes legislation police don't like, the citizen's name, address, and other information is given to the Commissioner of the State Police, then, in my case, it was Arthur L. Spada. Spada is known for retaliation practices, using police as thugs, ordering illegal surveillance including sabotaging and hacking personal computers, obstruction of justice, cover ups, and possibly racketeering and other serious crimes.

Connecticut State Police encourage individuals to threaten, harass, make false statements, manufacture and withhold evidence, and assault and even kill citizens. The perpetrators in my case, knew that only I would be arrested, no matter what they did, and that they would get favors or cash from police. It has been a long standing practice to have Connecticut State Registered Police Informants terrorize citizens out of business, their homes, and to even beat police officers on orders of other police officers.

Can you imagine having Peter Coukos punching you in your back slapping you in the back of the head telling you he wanted your underage, teenage daughter to get on her knees and provide him with oral sex? He taunted me to fight him. It would have ended up in my being arrested again. Coukos, a frequenter of prostitutes, crack cocaine and prescription drug abuser, alcoholic, and admitted sociopath with a bi-polar disorder was allegedly offered help in obtaining a pistol permit to assault me and terrorize my then 14 year old daughter who he had an obsession with.

Tony, can you imagine not having contact with your daughter again, after being a target of police, for legal, Constitutional behavior? Can you imagine an abuser that abused you taking over your business and property as a reward for abusing you?

I request that the Public Safety Committee review the transcripts of what passed off as a "trial" with Judge Jonathan Kaplan presiding. I request that a special hearing be held where I, Chris Kennedy, and others retaliated upon by police and members of the judiciary are able to speak about our cases and to suggest ways to prevent future citizen abuse and disregard for the US Constitution.

The Connecticut State Police Internal Affairs Unit in Connecticut has a policy for those lodging police misconduct complaints, it is called "Arrest and Discredit" and complaints aren't adequately investigated. Police are terrorizing other police officers into silence and submission.

Should a US Marine that is stabbed 13 times get arrested waking up in a hospital? Stephen Murzin had made a police misconduct complaint. A Connecticut Judge felt that a felon on probation, shouldn't be violated on probation for almost killing 3 people, probably because he knew that the felon was acting under orders and probably paid by police with tax dollars to commit the felonies. This shows that illegal collusion between judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and police exists in Connecticut.

I propose Civilian Oversight of Police legislation to be considered by the Public Safety Committee Legislator and to look into the case of Ritt Goldstein who testified with International experts on Civilian Oversight of Police was so terrorized by police after officially testifying in front of Connecticut legislators that he fled to Sweden seeking political asylum.

Troopers Tell Of Retaliation
Legislators Urged To Revamp State Police

By TRACY GORDON FOX | Courant Staff Writer
March 5, 2008

Their voices cracking at times, trooper after trooper stepped forward at a legislative hearing Tuesday to testify that they had been victims of blatant retaliation by state police managers against whom they had filed complaints alleging severe misconduct.

The troopers, many of them whistle-blowers in some of the most egregious cases of wrongdoing outlined in a 2006 internal affairs report, asked legislators to help stop the harassment and revamp the state police department.

As a show of support, about 200 troopers — dressed in suits and ties — attended the hearing before the public safety committee in the Legislative Office Building in Hartford. It lasted five hours.

Union President Steven Rief harshly criticized the agency for severely punishing road troopers for misdeeds while being lenient with managers.

The committee may decide as early as today whether to create a task force that would address problems within the department.

Even legislators who have attended hearings in recent weeks on racism and harassment within the state police were stunned at some of Tuesday's testimony. Rep. Andrea Stillman, D- Waterford, said she was "flabbergasted," and apologized to some of the troopers who testified.

Among them was Det. Karen Nixon, one of the whistle-blowers who expressed concern about Eugene Baron, a trooper who had been stopped on suspicion of drunken driving four times and let go each time by state police. Baron left the department last year after he was arrested on a drunken-driving charge by Manchester police.

She told legislators that in October 2006, after she filed a complaint with the attorney general's office about the department's failure to deal with Baron's problems, two of her supervisors in Southbury called the state Department of Children and Families to her home after she had a bad reaction to a medication and asked to leave work.

DCF workers later went to her home and asked her 7-year-old son "if mommy ever touched him," Nixon, a 14-year veteran, told legislators. The DCF later determined the case to be unfounded, and Nixon's young children remain with her, according to records.

"When you or your loved ones dial 911, you get us. We are what is public safety. We understand the inherent risk every day," Nixon said. "But at no point should I have to suffer ridicule or public humiliation to me as a mother."

Trooper William Cario testified that he was a whistle-blower in a case of alleged misconduct, after which he was disciplined for failure to properly supervise an accident. He was stripped of his rank as sergeant and was given a 60-day suspension, meaning he would be out of work for 96 calendar days, the longest suspension anyone can remember.

"Health benefits for my family were canceled" because of the lengthy suspension, he said. He fought the case and his suspension has since been overturned; he is awaiting a July 2008 date for arbitration to clear his name.

Attorney General Richard Blumenthal said Tuesday that he was aware of claims of state police retaliation against whistle-blowers, and that their cases are the reason he proposed stronger legislation to protect those who report misconduct within their agencies.

He said he was outraged "at the harassment and retaliation directed at the courageous men and women who cooperated in my investigation." The 2006 internal affairs investigation was conducted by Blumenthal and the New York State Police.

Missing from most of Tuesday's hearing was Public Safety Commissioner John A. Danaher III, who instead went to a press conference with Gov. M. Jodi Rell about traffic safety initiatives on I-95 in the Fairfield area.

Danaher, who became commissioner a year ago, arrived later in the day and spoke to Rief privately.

The union president had asked legislators earlier, "Where is the commissioner of the Department of Public Safety?"

Rief focused his testimony on the discipline of troopers since a new internal affairs policy began more than a year ago, saying that in some cases investigations go on for a year or more.

"There are core issues yet to be resolved that are ripping this department apart," Rief said.

He added that the 200 troopers attended Tuesday "because morale has never been so low."

Reached later by telephone, Danaher said he plans ongoing discussions with the union and legislature about the issues.

Col. Thomas Davoren, commander of the state police, said that managers are being held accountable, and that in 2007 there were nine internal affairs cases involving managers, three times the normal amount.

Danaher said he discussed the Nixon case with Lt. Col. Robert Duffy, who heads the internal affairs unit.

"I confirmed they [the two supervisors involved] are under investigation," he said.

"We have a retaliation policy. If they bring it to our attention, then an investigation will be done," Danaher said.

Danaher said the new internal affairs process has required a long learning curve. He said that investigations must be done more quickly, and that the department needs to look at the level of discipline imposed.

"We are willing to talk to the committee about any proposals they have in mind," Danaher said.

But Rep. Christopher Caruso, D-Bridgeport, said the time for talking may be past.

"We've got to look at this entire agency," he said. "This entire General Assembly and the governor have been unwilling to acknowledge and change a structural defect within the Connecticut state police. We have done basically nothing to change how it operates."

My comment posted to the Courant article:

It just isn't Connecticut State Police Officers that have been the victims of harassment, being terrorized, and suffering the effects of blanket retaliation.

I watched as Connecticut State Police Officers went after property investors and small business owners in Stafford Connecticut based on their race or lack of insider connections.

Drug dealers, prostitutes, vandals, thieves, and other criminals receive pay and/or incentives to abuse citizens and even police officers that aren't willing to be team players, no matter the team's real agenda.

Connecticut is under armed occupation. Having police act like a LA street gang, has gone on long enough.

The "police" officers have a team that hacks into computers and is involved in "domestic spying".

Police coming armed to talk to elected officials in numbers, although they have an issue, is a scary proposition.

A 6'5 Homeland Security Officer and plain cloths officer were installed in Seymour and probably other Connecticut schools. Homeland security and police would, use military style interrogations of 13 year old girls asking them their sexual orientation:

Legislators are out to offer police more "homeland" security style powers and less accountability. Police informants can beat up citizens, only the citizen will receive a criminal record, and with new rules in place, police can arrest "target" citizen on sight in public:

Tax dollars are used to pay thugs, Connecticut State Registered Police Confidential Informants:
They need not have driver's licenses, insurance, valid, plates, or an inspected vehicle to drive on Connecticut roads with the blessing of State and local police. The "informants" beat and terrorize citizens and even beat cops for cops!
