Chief Mazzie stated in the newspaper article "It is shameful that Mr. Wheeler would committ larceny after being placed in a position of trust; but it is more distasteful that he would steal from the Everett taxpayers that paid his salary"

I think the DeMaria administration should spend more time off blogs and slandering people. How is anyone going to have a fair trial?

I know for a fact there are lies in that report that will be proven.

I have asked Topix to track your IP and remove your post and will be taken to court.

FYI - He was hired under the Ragucci administration, not Hanlon so get your facts straight before you post, you and Mazzie.

BTW - Where's Mike Buckely's story with his picture and on the front page?

Wow. History repeats. How did he not know, or even think he'd get away with this, after someone was already caught doing the same thing not that long ago.

Loser - There is no Mike Buckley story. Get your facts together. He resigned. It's easy to find that out.

You can cover up all you want. HH&M Metals! It's been reported and if Mazzie covers it up, he will have the FBI all over him.

There most certainly is a Mike Buckley story.

I believe there is a police report on him too.

They just didn't publicize it. It would make the mayor look bad.

They are not fooling anyone.

I hear Buckley has some legal problems in Somerville too.

I think, don't know for sure. Meter collectors have a coin cart....like the one used in casino's to carry change.

Most of those quarters were mine. Seems like I am constantly putting quarters in those meters. Glad they caught him.

Did Buckley have a cart to move his/our copper around?

I also hear there is a tape of Buckley acting inappropriately in the city hall parking lot.

the story in todays paper is nothing but lies. this has been a long time set-up by the mayor and all his little buddies for quite some time. yes i said it - the mayor and his friend zamboni for one and many others involved. maybe the people of the city of everett should take a closer look at who they have appointed to office and who is protecting their city.
Ever hear of the phrase... "INNOCENT until proven guilty"????

Mazzie is stating allegations as fact - isn't that a no no? Why is that none of the reports in the Everett Leader Herald list the name of the author? Why is that Janet Brown, Franny Denish, Billy Bowdritch and John (the old parking clerk from the McCarthy administration) all were caught and found guilty or plead guilty to stealing money from the city, yet they never made the front page. It's because of Janet Brown that you have to pay for building permit by check now.

The paper said $1600 in quarters - hmm I wonder how much that would weigh? Let's be real!

There was NO money found in the apartment either, that was another made up lie. Leave the kid alone.

I know this to be true. It was that scumbag Zaniboni who had a problem with this kid because he was trying to tell him what to do. Zaniboni does not work for the parking clerk.

Zaniboni who STRANGLED someone at Florence Street Park and caused him to have a heart attack.

Then Zaniboni set him up and told him to move a car. Officer Michael Vetrano, who gets 25K incentive PLUS 12 months unemployment, because he's Carlo's buddy, comes flying in parking lot, arrest the kid and puts him in jail. The kid goes to court and judge yells 'What the hell is going on in Everett" and DISMISSES the case but ZANIBONI looks like the BIG ass that he is.

This SECOND setup has been months in the making.

Other acts of violence from DeMaria people are sand in gas tanks, property damage, flat tires on cars.

You wanna see who's on camera next? It's the postal maniac from the mayors office just waiting for something like this. Just wait until the FBI comes down on all of them there coming like a shit storm when they least expect it.

one quarter weighs 0.012 lbs, so $1600 in quarters = 6400 quarters (1600 x 4). 6400 quarters x 0.012 lbs = 76.8 lbs. You don't seriously believe this kid had over 75 lbs of coins in backpack do you?

The people stealing from the taxpayers is DeMaria and his administration. Carlo is using city money to pay for a high priced law firm to pursue his personal vendetta on an employee who was denied, appealed and then rightfully granted his early reitrement incentive. Yet, there's no money to fix the potholes in our streets. And then there's Vetrano who was on the force for 8 months and received a $25,000 incentive to retire. Who's the thief here? These are facts.

Ok. I'll bite. Loser and Chuck instead of the typical lies and BS that you spread - prove it. I happen to know for a fact that Buckley resigned and you can too if you had the balls to request the info from the city. But no... you'd rather spread lies and be the losers that you are. The short time that I got to know Mike showed me what an honest guy he is. You are the lowlifes of Everett politics and an embarrassment. So now I challenge you to prove and back your statements. Anyone who choses to believe me, it's easily proven

I'm sure if anybody calls City Hall that they would be told that Buckley resigned. I'm even sure that they could produce a copy of a resignation, a forced one. Just a lame attempt to cover up yet another black eye for this inept administration. But then again, people in this city are easily fooled, just look at election day.
