WBPD PROUD



My prayers go out to the WBPD officer diagnosed with stomach cancer. I am sworn to secrecy to not reveal the name... but obviously some of you know. You will be prayed for with a group of my friends every night. Get well my friend. I have heard good things about you.


What am I thankful for? (... as far as WBPD)

- I am thankful that no one (besides the officer shot in the ankle) has been injured responding to Sherman Hills calls and the "outsiders" (North Jersey/Bronx/Philly etc.)

- I am thankful that you (WBPD) are not under the thumb of the old chemically impaired chief. It is the fact that the force was under the leadership of this man that has me trying to see the WBPD in a new light. Whatever an alcoholic leads falls apart... whether it be his family, the people he is supervising... even his own life. You learn these things when attending about 2,000 AA meetings in one's life like I have (about 30 years).

- I am thankful that it appears the new WBPD chief Hughes has adopted a "servant" mentality (as in "protect and serve"). Using the most recent example of the CVS/Family Dollar shooting (suspect's first name was "BonG"), the reporting of the storty was fully transparent with everyone being named. This was a welcome change. 

Moving forward   Given new leadership and the positive feedback I am getting... I do not feel the need to "clobber" anyone based on past exploits. It is time to turn the page. However, issues may come up from the past regarding Leighton and what went on under his nose. I will have to bring up "the past" here as part of the "corruption cluster" but I will try and leave names out. 

Until Leighton does a "180" with his life... light will be necessary.

ADVOCATE     I plan to keep the pressure on inspections/audits of Sherman Hills. You deseve this. I find it abhorrent how Leighton and Pashinski etc...  dawdle with this responibility. It is unacceptable. Sadly, their lack of effort shows what they truly think of the WBPD.

You folks know and I know that any WBPD officer could lose his life if he corners a fugitive with little to lose. You have enough to worry about with Wilkes-barre without having to worry about the overflow of Bronx heroin dealers. 

Stay safe. Be well.

Video (Warning: Graphic) of homeless man killed by police

A homeless New Mexico man who was illegally camping in the Albuquerque foothills was fatally shot by police. (Graphic video)



Homeless man with no gun... they could have let the dog go but instead they killed him.

Scroll down a page at this link:  SHOOTING

This in no way implies that this type of behavior has occurred locally. I reported previously on this blog that I saw a homeless man treated with kindness (WBPD Mark Hilpp). 

It does make the point that all officers pay the price of some “bad actors” in terms of community outrage and anti-law enforcement sentiment. Such sentiment unfortunately is played out every day.

My Response to Ron Felton /Times Leader srticle asking people to vote (especially African Americans


Frank Sorick (Republican) shows up at every council meeting and supports MLK Day. He attends(ed?) a church with an African-American minister. What you may not know about Frank and Katrina is they often take in homeless people. I have been in their home when they took in an African-American male. All you (freakin') people have to do is register. The entire culture of Wilkes-Barre will be massively improved with Frank Sorick as Mayor. YOU NEED TO HOLD YOUR END UP AND VOTE!!!

PIGS GET SLAUGHTERED... EVENTUALLY



NEW INFO: THESE CITY HALL SLOBS (BELOW)  WERE POSTING THEIR ESCAPADES ON FACEBOOK.

I SUPPOSE THIS IS NO SURPRISE SINCE THEY HAVE NO CONSCIENCE NOR SENSE OF SHAME.

Was this trip to Austin, Texas announced?



Or did Bill Barrett and Kathy Kane just sneak away?


How does this trip benefit Wilkes-Barre?



Workshops: 

1) Navigating the produce aisle at Wegman's

2) Gaveling Kobby out of council without losing your dentures.

I hope the taxpayers audit this trip and ask for reimbursements for:

- Taking spouses

- Flying 1st class

- Booze for Marty Kane?

There are people losing their homes through tax sales while these filthy pigs steal from the city. All under the approval of Leighton... of course.

See Wake Up Wilkes-Barre HERE  for more.

Was the "Leighton Lover" letter a hoax?

Approximately 10 people have approached me and asked if the "Leighton lover" post (yesterday's post) was a hoax. It may have been. Especially the part that says, "I think I will send Leighton a check... I think you should too." 


If it was either a hoax or a glimpse into someone's grotesque ideology. This is a frightening possibility when one considers the amazing number of people who were profoundly hurt during Leighton's term.

I wish I could take each and everyone of you into the tiny homes of the poor single moms who were sobbing because their cars were price gouged/stolen by LAG Towing and whose calls to Gerard Dessoye and Mayor Leighton went unanswered. They had no place to go and weren't "important enough" to be heard. It is sad beyond words that anyone would be treated in this matter. 

WHAT HAVE WE BECOME? 

WHAT HAS WILKES-BARRE BECOME?

Think how important a car (anything that runs) is to a poor single mom with kids. Having their cars stolen serves nothing less than throwing them into an economic death spiral.

I pray that the person who wrote this pro-Leighton letter (if in fact it wasn't a hoax) never suffers the indignities and injustices and  the cruelty that Leighton and Dessoye let play out under their noses. One of the symptoms of alcoholism is the destruction of one's moral compass which can lead to cruel behavior that is truly beyond words. 


PS  I suppose the lallygagging at Sherman Hills is convenient when you (and you know who you are) aren't the ones responding to calls from there. One officer was already shot in the foot. Are we waiting for a fugitive with better aim? This is a ticking time bomb and I would like to know the reason why Leighton ignored this development for years. 

How bad was it?  A metal stair case collapsed. I never in my life have heard of such a thing.

If it is legitimately found out that Leighton took no "pay offs" from Sherman Hills ownership... then I will "eat my hat" on public square.

TOP 10 REASONS WHY MAYORAL CANDIDATE KELLY IS A LEIGHTON "PLANT"

WHEN SOMETHING SEEMS FISHY IT USUALLY IS.

SOURCES TELL ME THAT WB MAYORAL CANDIDATE BRIAN KELLY MAY BE A LEIGHTON "PLANT."

Photo Courtesy of Cit Voice
Cit Voice article see  HERE 

MOTIVE?   LEIGHTON WISHES KELLY TO WATER DOWN THE FIELD AND IMPROVE LEIGHTON'S CHANCES AS THE INCUMBENT.

... GEORGE BROWN STILL MAY ENTER THE RACE AND "TAKE A BULLET FOR LEIGHTON."

ONLY QUALIFIED CANDIDATES
VS. TONY GEORGE (DEMOCRAT)
VS. FRANK SORICK (REPUBLICAN)

WHY MAY KELLY BE PLANT?

1) He is reportedly good friends with:
- Bill Brace... Convicted felon and a political insider. His wife is/was on the credit union board (where Manager Payne killed himself and where indictments were handed out).

2) He is reportedly neighbors with George Brown... City Councilman who took two years to vote against LAG Towing.

3) He has been completely silent for years on WB corruption. I have beem involved for 3 1/2 years and I never heard of him. It is very curious that he now comes forth.

4) He wants to start "neighborhood clean-ups" which Betsy Summers has been doing for years. Kelly is out of touch.

5) Why would a 66 year old, never elected, drinking, portly Irish man (who is not Leighton) wish to run for office now? Is this the result of a bar bet... or something much more sinister?

6) He plans to raise no money and will not campaign. From Citizens Voice: "He promised that his campaign will not hold fund-raising dinners and will not bother people in their homes with door-to-door campaigning."

7) He has no plan. From Citizens Voice: "Kelly said he’d have to wait until taking office to see how many officers the city should have." That's comforting.

8) IN THE CATEGORY OF... HOW MUCH WERE YOUR DRINKING WHEN YOU SAID THIS?:  .From Citizens Voice: "He said the administration should encourage people to bequeath money to the city as one way to help its balance sheet." 

This bears repeating... his plan is to have city residents leave money in their will for Wilkes-Barre's balance sheet!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Not for family, not for schools, not for charities... but to the city of W-B!!!!!!

9) He announced this "very serious" candidacy... no surprise in W-B... from a corner bar!! With about 7 other drinkers present.

10) DESIGNED MISCHIEF: From Citizen's Voice: "Kelly said he would investigate a possible write-in campaign on the Republican line."  THE ONLY TRUE REASON FOR THIS MEASURE IS TO DISRUPT FRANK SORICK'S CAMPAIGN (THE ONLY BONA FIDE REPUBLICAN)

Remember... anything is possible here. Leighton is the one who hid a million dollar gift to the city and made the city gas pump his "family pump"... in addition to his involvement to LAG Towing and the federal raid on Sherman Hills.

He may be giving Kelly cash to run because, as you can see above, Kelly has absolutely no business running for Mayor.

If the law is exercised fairly (and I hope it is)... Leighton should be spending double-digit years in prison for racketeering. He is an alcoholic and a very desparate man. Don't count out anything.

Message to lone Leighton supporter

Hi ----   You are entitled to your opinion. I wonder if it might have changed your mind had you served on the front lines of corruption. I have dealt with multiple sobbing mothers who were at their wit's end after their car was price gouged and stolen by LAG Towing. They called Gerard Dessoye. No response. They called Leighton. No response. There was literally no one to help them in this city wide criminal scam. There is no way that convicted felon could have done what he did without the full support of city leadership, Food for thought. There is mo redeeming quality that could overcome the pain he has caused.

LEIGHTON TO RUN AGAIN!

... or is it the alcohol talking?

See Times leader article  HERE



Running mate is rumored to be Rob Ford from Toronto.

Unemployed Leighton sympathizer Leo Glodzik 

to be named third city spokesman.










ANOTHER BYRON DICKSON WAITING TO HAPPEN

...yet this will be different than Byron Dickson. The next likely accident will take the life of a city officer. And it will have come with PLENTY OF WARNING!



See Times Leader article about gunfire incident at Wal Mart HERE

This is what helps push "black crime" up in the city. It is the people Leighton has allowed to fill up Sherman Hills in return for what I believe had to be kickbacks returned to him. 

Kickbacks are the only logical explanation to NOT inspect Sherman Hills. There is no other good reason not to. Period. Leighton may have saved the previous owner one million dollars. Yet he has no trouble inspecting "Strike 1" properties or those of his competitors in his real estate business. 

At some point there is likely going to be a horrible tragedy played out on WB police officer stemming from a fugitive who has nothing to lose. At that point there won't just be blood on Leighton's hands... but it will be dripping from his chin.

Alcoholism and running a city don't mix. Never has. Never will. Men of courage get well. Leighton is a coward… of the worst type. His cowardice and negligence put lives at risk.

Cartwright and Pashinski continue to sit with thumbs up their respective asses. No rush… it is only the death of a cop at stake.

PROOF OF WB PROFILING


1) WB POLICE CHIEF GERARD DESSOYE IN TIMES LEADER: "EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO WALK BEHIND THE POLICE STATION - EVERYONE EXCEPT ROBBINS."

Can't get much clearer! That is profiling!

See Citizens Voice article regarding profiling HERE

2) LAG TOWING PROFILED HIS VICTIMS AND THE POLICE, DESSOYE, AND LEIGHTON DID NOTHING!

I helped three poor African-American women: All had their cars stolen by LAG Towing. They were profiled because they had no clout. The police, Dessoye, and Leighton let (Glodzik) this convicted felon predator have his way.




(The picture above is ambiguous. Is the officer being kind or is this the start of profiling? My personal belief is the WBPD do not profile in their normal course of duty)

I have not seen indications that the WB police have been profiling minorities during normal duty. A lot of the arrests have to do with the "Bronx/NJ" connection of drug dealers at Sherman Hills. 

But then again, it is my opinion that this wouldn't be a problem if Leighton would inspect the units as he should... which begs the question "What has he been receiving for NOT inspecting the units?"

So the scam the police should be focusing on is the one perpetrated on them. WHY ARE THEY RISKING THEIR LIVES FOR LEIGHTON'S CORRUPTION OR CARELESSNESS?


Which is better? The Light or Darkness?
I hope the police would look forward to people recognizing them for the good they do!

Two Recent videos of police (Both good)
-     WBPD Mark Hilpp helping homeless man
-     Edwardsville officer arresting unruly drug crazed woman. I offered the tape in case SHE made false accusations.

I will assume that DA Salavantis did not give a complete answer when she said the people are protected through their Mayors. I do not understand this answer... that there is a one-person watchdog.

In case Leighton doesn’t know why he didn't (or doesn't) get written complaints… I will try and explain to him. It is because you are a corrupt alcoholic and nobody trusts you. Can I be more clear?

Good news about Chief Robert Hughes

195,000 views.  Thank you.

I have commented in the past about new WB Chief Robert Hughes over what I consider to be serious past lapses of judgment on the part of Chief Hughes. Yet unlike the last chief who tried to intimidate me via the letters from attorneys... Chief Hughes has gone about doing the best job he can. I respect that.




What I have been hearing is the professional, courteous, and humble manner in which he has conducted the affairs of Wilkes-Barre. It has been told to me that Hughes is cleaning up some of the mess the previous chief left behind.

We can only do what is in front of us and we can't change history. I am gratified that Chief Robert Hughes appears to be providing the right leadership. We cannot afford any more corruption.

I hope the trajectory continues.

RETALIATION + VIDEOS = WHAT'S UP WITH COUNTY CHAIRMAN RICK MORELLI?


After seeing the first video below months ago... I reached out to Rick Morelli as I know that while going through a divorce that emotions run wild. Many of us have been there. I asked Rick Morelli to "chill out" in the mean time so as to not create more problems for himself. But it appears he has gone off again.

Video   (13 seconds)     Morelli accusing a woman publicly of adultery in front of her children (after Morelli had adultery with the same woman). 

Video 2  (23 seconds)  Morelli "brow beating" a resident at council meeting


Unless I am missing something, it appears that Morelli feels the need to retaliate whenever he is questioned.

1) He apparently stalked his old girlfriend in the first video and humilated her with her children present at a restaurant.

2) When harrassment charges were filed against him - he allegedly reciprocated by filing the same charges.

As part on county council business, he supported giving money to the magistrates despite him having two upcoming hearings. Kathy Dobash pointed out (correctly I believe) a potential conflict of interest.

3) So what does Morelli do? He files ethics charges against Dobash regarding e mails she sent months ago.

NOTES
A) WHY NOW? He could have filed ethics charges months ago... but didn't
B) Dobash was doing what all public servants should be doing. She was doggedly in pursuit of the truth behind a fire and an endangered child. Two very important matters.
C) Read the article yourself and decide if Dobash should be brought in front of an ethics board for what she asked.

See Times Leader article  HERE

When I watched the videos I personally saw a narcissim that was disturbing. I suggest that Rick Morelli take a leave of absence while he gets himself together. In my opinion, he is not the best man for the job at this present time.

Absolutely stunning... considering

Congratulations to Eddie Day Pashinski

I hope Representative Pashinski will listen to the people who amazingly supported Betsy Summers.

Almost 33 % of the vote 
- A Libertarian
- Ran on zero dollars with only a blog behind her
- Against an 8 year incumbent

What we ask is simple enough for a third grader.

If you see something... say something... preferably publically
If you hear of something... report it

I as an unknown citizen have put a huge dent into corruption.
We expect far, far more from the pulpit of our state rep.

This goes for Sherman Hills, Leighton, kickbacks... everything
Expose corruption.
We will be loud. We will be vocal.

In the mean time I pray that God give you serenity and peace in your time of great loss. 



OUTSPENT $328,000 TO ZERO... THERE'S A SUMMER'S MIRACLE IN THE MAKING

193,000 views on this blog... together we can send the corrupt to prison.

Folks... the turn-out at the polls for Betsy Summers has been eye-opening.

Outspent $328,000 to zero... help us make NATIONAL NEWS.
Betsy has refused all money from all state unions and all special interests.




She represents you and only you.

Call Betsy at (610) 955-6361 to help at polls.
Or call Lou Jasikoff at (570) 677-2607.


There is no precedent for this.

Make it happen.

VOTE!!

CONDOLENCES FOR THE DEATH OF TWO IN OUR COMMUNITY




On behalf of myself, Betsy Summers, Frank Sorick, Lou Jasikoff, John Diliberto and our many friends within the community... we are deeply sorry for the loss of two people who succumbed to cancer.

It never seems fair or right when a father outlives a son and we extend our compassion and sympathies to the Barrouks.

And it must be an incredibly empty feeling to lose a life-long partner and a doting mother and grandmother. We express our sympathies to the Pashinski family.

Let set politics aside and pray and focus on our relationship with the Lord. Allow Him to comfort.

I assume the families are Christian. As such, the bible promises that the separaration is temporary. There will be a re-uniting. We worship a very big God who is capable of many great things.

At the same time, having lost my father to cancer - I realize it doesn't take the painful sting away. It takes time. 







Title deleted out of respect














Ask yourself a simple question: If you are a police officer, fireman, or just a resident/friend of Sherman Hills - would you rather have Betsy Summers backing you or Pashinski? Who is on the board at Sherman Hills? Pashinski. Are you safer?


Next meeting? December. I suppose anyone killed in between now and then is expendable. No rush. Does the month-after-month dawdling give you the impression that someone is being protected?



If a public figure aids/abets/covers the corruption of another – then they are corrupt. This, in my opinion, is one form of corruption.

From Times Leader: “Asked about efforts to resolve crime at the Sherman Hills housing complex, Pashinski appeared aloof. (Pashinski sits on the Sherman Hills Task Force.) He told us dismissively that his ability to do anything is limited: ‘I’m really frustrated with it, because really it’s in the hands of HUD.’”

From Times Leader:  “Sherman Hills is ground zero for violent crime in our community. Pashinski ought to be more concerned and vocal about it.

Does it seem to you that blame is being shifted? Exculpating the alcoholic Mayor and former chief Dessoye? Might either of these two received kickbacks in return for effectively ordering no inspections on 344 units? For 10 years? A metal stair case collapsed! How bad are conditions when a metal stair case collapses?

If I am heading in the wrong direction. – then you tell me why there were effectively no inspections, for a decade, at the most dangerous place in Wilkes-Barre? There is simply no good answer other than kickbacks.

Pashinski? It’s all HUD’s fault. Well Eddie… why did you sit on your hands for 8 years? You wait 8 years to act?

Local people have seen this before. We are not dumb. When there’s no logical explanation – then there’s corruption.

Also from Times Leader:
… “Summers says she’ll tirelessly advocate property tax reform…  And that’s where Pashinski loses our support.”
… “Pashinski has become a career politician during his eight-year tenure in Harrisburg.”
… “Pashinski played the stereotypical blame game in dumping all of our region’s problems on Gov. Tom Corbett.
… “We asked Pashinski why he hadn’t done more to close those corporate loopholes. His answer stunned – and saddened – us: “As a Democrat, I’ve stopped introducing stuff.”

… “Pashinski’s websites apparently haven’t been updated in some time.”

… “Instead of communicating only the important issues in a recent newsletter, we’re treated to a photo of Pashinski playing the piano.

 “While Pashinski, 69, also a city resident, sounds like every other beaten-down Democrat, Summers exudes energy that she would channel toward accomplishing good for her district.”





… “Summers is the everyman’s woman. And she’s our choice to unseat a seemingly disengaged Pashinski.
