CT Lawmakers To Study Fatherlessness

[more] from the Connecticut News Junkie

Official Connecticut gets Federal Tax Dollars to put out as many restraining orders and to have as many court cases as possible. Arrests, breaking up families, placing children, putting citizens on parole and probation, and incarcerating as many citizens as possible also brings in the Federal Tax Dollars.

So, these officials can make 6 figure jobs for their friends and families as the results of all the broken up families and abused citizens produce more and more jobs and tax dollars for the abusers. [more]

Second Indicted Officer Resigns From Huntsville Police

Posted: June 25, 2008 12:01 PM

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAAY) - A second Huntsville police officer previously indicted by a grand jury turned in his badge Wednesday morning.

Wesley Little resigned two days after his partner, Ryan Moore, turned in his resignation. Both officers appeared before a Huntsville personnel review board last week to determine whether they would keep their jobs despite allegations of misconduct.

Both Wesley and Moore are facing multiple felony charges for allegations that include drug possession, tampering with evidence and false reporting.

Stay tuned to WAAY 31 and for more information as it becomes available.

Undercover NYPD Officers Frame 4 On Drug Charges
NYPD Investigating Incident, Officers Placed On Modified Duty
NEW YORK (CBS) ― Undercover police officers who arrested four men on drug charges are under investigation after surveillance video proved the men they arrested committed no crime.

Drug charges against brothers Jose Colon and Maximo Colon, along with two of their friends have been dropped.

The undercover NYPD officers are seen on video dancing in the street, then attempting to frame four innocent men.

"I asked police officer why are you arresting me," said Maximo Colon. "Never did I get an answer."

The investigators swore under oath they bought drugs from the four men. Jose and Maximo colon say that didn't happen.

"The cops are supposed to help us," said a shaken Jose Colon.

Defense lawyers say the surveillance cameras proved their clients were framed.

"It was nauseating," said defense lawyer Rochelle Berliner.

Two hours of video showed no contact at all between the four men arrested and undercover officers - proof that lead prosecutors to drop charges against the four men, and even declare in court the men did not commit the crime.

Defense lawyers say it's disturbing but not uncommon.

"As defense attorneys you know it exists more often than government wants you to believe," said Brad Wolk.

In the 6 months it took to clear the Colon brothers names, they lost their business and their savings.

As a result of his ordeal, Maximo Colon has lost trust in police officers.

The two men are now involved in a civil suit against the city and hope to one day rebuild their lives.

The NYPD is investigating the officers involved in this incident. Two of the officers are reportedly on modified duty.

Former Conn. officer sentenced to life in attack

Beverly Hills, Fla. (AP) -- Florida authorities say a retired New Britain police officer has been sentenced to life in prison for the rape and torture of his estranged wife, who shot him in the chest to escape.

Daniel Begley Senior, who was a New Britain officer for 24 years, was convicted of sexual battery and kidnapping. It came in connection with the November 2006 attack in Citrus County, Florida.

Authorities say it was a revenge attack because he was angry that she wanted a divorce.

Prosecutors say he tied her up, put duct tape over her mouth and kept her captive for hours while he beat, raped and tortured her.

She was able to free herself when Begley left the room to check on their young children, and she shot him in the chest with his .38-caliber revolver when he came back.

He was hospitalized, but later recovered. His attorney says he'll appeal.

Should Connecticut Police be trusted with guns off-duty?

Retired Waterbury cop held in weapons case​
Associated Press

LITCHFIELD [Connecticut]- A retired Waterbury police officer has been charged with threatening to kill his wife and illegally possessing guns, nearly three years to the day after his brother killed his wife and himself outside a state courthouse.

Bruce Bochicchio, 41, surrendered to state police Thursday after learning there was an arrest warrant for him, troopers said. He was held in lieu of $1 million bail after being arraigned at Bantam Superior Court, where a judge scolded Bochicchio's alleged conduct.

His brother, former state Trooper Michael Bochicchio, shot his wife, Donna, and himself to death June 15, 2005, outside Superior Court in Middletown, during a bitter divorce and child custody dispute. Donna Bochicchio's lawyer, Julie Porzio, was also shot during the incident and survived, but suffered permanent injuries.

Bruce Bochicchio and his wife, Christine, 43, live in Morris and have been caring for his brother's two children, in addition to their own two children, her two children from a previous relationship and two children who are friends of the family, authorities said.

Christine Bochicchio told police that her husband's behavior has become erratic and she alleged he threatened to kill her last weekend. She said she worried about the safety of the children and herself, and told officers she believed her husband had weapons in the house in violation of restraining orders issued after he had fights with her teenage son.

Bruce Bochicchio told Superior Court Judge Charles D. Gill on Thursday that he would never hurt his family.

"I love my family. I would never cause them harm, or harm anyone," he said.

Authorities said Bruce Bochicchio turned over more than 40 firearms to state police in May to comply with the restraining orders. But police said they found 11 more guns at his house while executing a search warrant this week, including two automatic submachine guns and an assault rifle.

His lawyer, Tom Waterfall, said his client didn't know there were more weapons in the house.

"There was no intentional deception," Waterfall said.

But the judge said the case raised red flags for potential danger.

"Starting out with the premise that you had 41 or more weapons, mixed with emotions and a handful of children, these things don't mix," Gill said.

Revolution March - July 12- Washington DC


The Truth about Government


There is no such thing as democracy. The form of government going by that name is like a horse-race where all the horses are owned by the same person. For a party to get the funding and the media support needed to have any chance of winning an election, it must prostitute itself to the ruling elite. The same applies to individual politicians. If any politician is remotely successful without selling out, he or she will get ignored, suppressed, ridiculed, vilified or – if everything else fails - killed. There is no way the ruling elite will let anyone to the top whom they don’t control.

Ruling Elite

Who is that ruling elite I am talking about. It’s a closely-knit network of century old European nobility intermarried with old money, such as the Rothschilds, Warburgs, Rockefellers etc. This inner circle, the so-called ‘Committee of 300’, is aided by a wider circle of about 5000 rich and powerful people who control anything worth controlling in this world, whether it is in business, media, entertainment, politics, religion, law, or science. I’m thinking of people like Rupert Murdoch, Bill Gates and intermediaries between the inner and the wider circle such as Henry Kissinger. Nobody will make it into the wider circle of the ruling elite without the inner circle having total control over them.

The reason why the inner circle must have total control over the lower ranks is that these people are very rich and well respected. If anyone of them went public with what they know, it would do enormous damage to the entire system. They couldn’t simply be ignored, suppressed, ridiculed or vilified. And even if the ruling elite killed them, it would be too late. The damage would already be done.

The ‘Secret Government’

Protecting the ruling elite against whistle-blowers from within is one of many tasks of the ‘Secret Government’, a parallel structure to the official administration. The reason for having such a parallel structure is to avoid legal and budgetary control of its illegal activities. The activities of public and secret government are coordinated by key people within the official administration known as ‘political’ public servants, such as under-secretaries.

Apart from maintaining a pool of highly trained assassins, the secret government deliberately entraps people groomed to join or serve the ruling elite in critical positions. For that purpose, the secret government maintains paedophile networks and satanic cults in which those future leaders are seduced to perform highly compromising activities that – if they became public knowledge – would completely destroy them.

Drug prohibition

Of course, such parallel structures cost money. The way the secret government finances itself is by selling illegal drugs. All around the world, more than 90% of illegal drugs are sold by government agencies. This explains why after decades of prohibition it is still easier to buy heroin than a decent second hand car. If the drug addicts can work out where to buy drugs, then the police can too. Drug prohibition is nothing but a tax payer funded, law enforced government monopoly for the purpose of financing the secret government. The secret government sells the drugs, and the official government keeps the competition out.


Connecticut, you can be jailed, just to rip you off if you drive through

Probate Injustice Returns

There is the unbelievable. Then there is the probate court.

Before we travel to Waterbury Probate Court, recall the case of Daniel Gross. You may remember the outrageous story of Gross, the elderly New York man who was held against his will in a Waterbury nursing home in 2006 by order of the probate court, merely because he happened to get sick in Connecticut. He was freed when a Superior Court judge intervened, calling the Gross case "a terrible miscarriage of justice."

On that day almost two years ago I sat in Superior Court Judge Joseph Gormley's courtroom in Waterbury and thought justice had finally been served. Gross subsequently left Connecticut — quickly — and lived in his home on Long Island until last October, when he died at age 87.

Gross has become a symbol for families across the country who believe the rights of the elderly and infirm are being violated by overzealous courts eager to appoint conservators and lawyers who earn fat paychecks "representing" the unfortunate.

Now, in a scene from a horror tale, Gross' former court-appointed conservator, Kathleen Donovan, has returned to Waterbury Probate Court — the place Superior Court Judge Gormley said had no jurisdiction and no business inserting itself into this old man's life. She is seeking $39,195 from Gross' estate for her work keeping this elderly gentleman locked up in a local nursing home. That consists of 261.3 hours of work at $150 per hour.

"The accounting speaks for itself," Donovan's lawyer, Thomas Riley, told Probate Judge Walter A. Clebowicz Monday afternoon at the scene of the original crime, probate court in Waterbury. At the hearing Clebowicz said he will rule next month on whether Waterbury probate has jurisdiction here.

That this filing suddenly and curiously pops up on the probate court docket again, years later, without warning, is provocative enough, but first let's review what Judge Gormley said about jurisdiction on July 13, 2006.

"The statute is absolutely clear that you can't appoint a conservator of someone's person unless that person is domiciled in the state of Connecticut or resides in the state of Connecticut," Gormley said. "This gentleman ... has never lived in the state of Connecticut, has lived and raised his three children in New York, his only assets were in New York, his house and his bank account, his driver's license is in New York, his registration is New York, his mail goes to New York. There is to me not a scintilla of evidence supporting residency."

"You can't appoint a conservator of the person for someone who lives out of state ... the man lives somewhere else," Gormley said. "This case has disturbed me from day one."

It is still disturbing. Donovan, Gross' former conservator, is trying to get paid, handsomely, for busywork that kept him here against his will for more than 10 months.

The Gross case led to limited reforms enacted by the state legislature. But in the dark corners of Connecticut's 117 probate courts, the old backslapping game continues, where lawyers and conservators are appointed under questionable circumstances. Most recently we saw this in North Haven where a German woman from New York City was held involuntarily in Connecticut until Legal Aid lawyers turned the lights on.

I called Judge James Lawlor, administrator of the probate court system, and asked whether he was concerned that a court with no jurisdiction was taking up paying the bills of a woman it had no business appointing in the first place.

"From my point of view it's wait and see how this is disposed," Lawlor said. "I think this one does need to get straightened out."

You've got that right. Some of us thought this was straightened out two years ago.

"It's unlawful that they are bringing this back to probate court, where they had no jurisdiction in the first place," said Carolyn Dee King, Gross' daughter, who fought valiantly for her father's freedom two years ago. "It's all devious."

"I am just appalled. There is no end," King told me, shortly before Monday's hearing. "They will try anything."

Some day, when we have a unified, properly supervised probate court system similar to our Superior Courts this will change.

Until then, it is wise to remember King's words.

Bush Seeks Immunity for Violating War Crimes Act
by Elizabeth Holtzman

Thirty-two years ago, President Gerald Ford created a political firestorm by pardoning former President Richard Nixon of all crimes he may have committed in Watergate -- and lost his election as a result. Now, President Bush, to avoid a similar public outcry, is quietly trying to pardon himself of any crimes connected with the torture and mistreatment of U.S. detainees.

The ''pardon'' is buried in Bush's proposed legislation to create a new kind of military tribunal for cases involving top al-Qaida operatives. The ''pardon'' provision has nothing to do with the tribunals. Instead, it guts the War Crimes Act of 1996, a federal law that makes it a crime, in some cases punishable by death, to mistreat detainees in violation of the Geneva Conventions and makes the new, weaker terms of the War Crimes Act retroactive to 9/11.

Press accounts of the provision have described it as providing immunity for CIA interrogators. But its terms cover the president and other top officials because the act applies to any U.S. national. [more]

* * * *

If dictator George steps down and allows an election, the profiteering, obstruction of justice, and the all out taxpayer rip off by the war corporations could be in jeopardy. Nations all over the world would like to have Bush arrested, tried for war crimes, and executed. They have plenty of evidence.

The shithead has to have something else up his sleeve.

Kucinich Presents 35 Articles Of Impeachment Against Bush

Bush either has to stay in office, declaring himself "Dictator", or he may go to jail.

Dennis Kucinich tries to present 35 articles of impeachment against President George Bush, but nobody seems to be paying attention. June 9, 2008

An Ohio Democratic lawmaker and former presidential candidate has presented articles of impeachment against President George W. Bush to Congress.

Thirty-five articles were presented by Rep. Dennis Kucinich to the House of Representatives late Monday evening, airing live on CSPAN.

Kucinich, a 2004 and 2008 Democratic candidate for the White House, abandoned a prior attempt to begin impeachment proceedings against Bush in January of this year.

In April of 2007, Kucinich presented impeachment articles against Vice President Dick Cheney, but the effort went nowhere. Kucinich exclaimed that "impeachment may well be the only remedy which remains to stop a war of aggression against Iran."

Before leaving office in January 2007, Rep. Cynthia McKinney--currently a Green Party presidential candidate--introduced articles of impeachment against President Bush as her last act in Congress, but that effort also was fruitless.

You may have "enjoyed" the Bill O'Reilly video yesterday about how terrible it was that Dan Rather was going to the NCMR conference, and speaking to the worst radical left-wing nuts in the US. Count me as being proud to be one of those people. O'Reilly has promised that his show tomorrow night (watch it - no really, I mean it - just not right before or after dinner) - He's going to expose us for the nutjobs and radicals he is sure we are. I'm looking forward to it. Compare his editing of this story with what you see below:

Fox was all over the convention with video crews. I'll have to say that I chatted with a couple of the video crew for a while, and they seemed like decent hard-working folks just doing their job.

But this is an example of what happens when they "interview" someone - I have no idea why someone would try to pull this in a convention full of people who have video recorders on them. There are a few more examples - they also accosted him on the street, but here are 2 different accounts of the backstage conversation, one from our friends at The Uptake, and one from On The Earth Productions' Karen Rybold Chin: - note the plug for Fighting Bob Fest - more on that in a few weeks:

Phil Donahue's Documentary

Body of War [website]

I watched Phil Donahue and Ellen Spiro's documentary on the life of veterans returning from Iraq. This is a "must see" film.

Video of Phil Donahue talking after the screening of his documentary in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at the Convention Center, June 6, 2008:

The audience was clapping during the film, and you could hear reactions, and emotions in the dark. Rarely do you hear so many reactions so often from other viewers during a film. The film makes an impact, and you’ll be left with something. The truth is told in imagery, the accurate showing of daily life of wounded veterans. Friends and families interacting with each other acting naturally as if the cameras weren't there.

The story follows paralyzed veteran Tomas Young. [more from Wikipedia]

For the mastery of editing, content, and the conveyance of a message, I don’t think it could be done better, my rating- 5 stars.

There hopefully will be a grassroots movement to get this film in theaters. It is that well done. I wish Phil Donahue was in the documentary business earlier.
