Finally justice in Fitchburg! There is finally common sense thinking! Mayor Wong, good job! Demoura,good job! Hopefully it will continue inward at the rest! Wow, the clique is being seperated!
I cannot believe that Tasca admitted that there wasn't even matchbook covers nor Taco bell wrappers for ledgers! They had been doing this all the time! For years!
Consequences is the key to prevention!! Way to go Mayor Wong, Demoura ,Ciota and others!! I am stunned as I really didn't believe he was going to be fired! Charges are pending! This was "business as usual". Louney,Kearns,Gallant and others may be co-defendants on federal charges!

The early bird gets the worm. Criminal charges are next. Start singing brother!! Louney,Kearns,Gallant,Tasca and three others!!!

Who will sing first to the justice department?? After reading your testimony; Tasca you need to get your attorney busy calling the Justice Department with a plea deal!

Criminal charges are looming! How in the world could you state to anyone that you kept track of the hours in your head! Your testimony today alone has Louney,Kearns,Gallant and others hiring attorneys!

You are dangerous when you speak. I hope everyone sees that they were so use to stealing and acting above the love that they felt the were permitted to steal as they were the leaders!"The, who is going to do anything to us?We are the police! Not only police but the Brass."

""(DeMoura) said 'I understand how that happens, and how that time works," said Tasca while under oath. "

Tasca,gave it the old college try; got too GREEDY!

changing it to a category called "other/department/union, " which indicated he was working."

Now they need a serious audit to compare days off with time taken off.

Tasca and the book keeper will be cooperating witnesses to avoid jail time.

I agreed...With the advice of an idiot like Ciota, I'm sure the mayor will fire Tasca. However, there is no way on gods green earth that this will stand up with the Civil Service Commission. Tasca will get all his back pay plus. Not to mention a certain law suit for age discrimination and retaliation against him for fighting the deputy chief position that wasn't even approved by the city council or civil service. Must have been more great advice the mayor got from Ciota. I wonder what kind of investigation the mayor did when she hired Ciota and DeMorua??? Firing someone is one thing. Making it stand with **** like he said he said is a JOKE!!! Mayor Wong could care less because she won't have to sign the check to pay Taca in the end. Where in hell has the Chief been in all this? Read the City of Fitchburg Codes. Powers and Duties of the Police Chief: He is supposed to be in entire control of the police department. List him as MIA. He's the one that should be discipline for allowing a supposed mis-use of comp., time if that is what they are alleging. Why didn't the chief call Tasca in and asked him about the use of his comp. time. No, instead, he and his other idoits called the mayor to report we might have something on Tasca. Then is sounds like they got this Donovan in who I've heard was friendly with DeMoura when he was with the Lowell PD. This really is starting to stink!
Ready read slow, do you have your drool cup adjusted?????

These are Tascas own words. Ready?? You'll see this hearing on the show "DUMBEST CRIMINALS". Tasca disagreed, saying he described to DeMoura the comp time he wanted to use, telling him it wasn't recorded in the Police Department database, but rather tallied up in his mind.

""(DeMoura) said 'I understand how that happens, and how that time works," said Tasca while under oath.

Tasca Thought the New Chief may want to get in on "the business as usual,embezzlement". Tasca nor anyone else that will be criminally charged has a chance of beating this one!! LMFAO; HA<HA,HA,HA! About time!!! Send them all packing!!!! We will stand strong with you Mayor Wong. There are more to come!! Tasca put them all out there!!
As Tasca stated "they have been doing this for years,All the administration"!

Yesterday the fraudulant "account name was given"; at least one of the accounts! The federal Government is on its way!!! There is no stopping them now! If you are a friend of Tascas; I would tell him to sing like a bird, before Kearns,Louney,Gallant of others get first in line! The truth is out there now; it is all a game of saving your own but t now!!!!

Great Job Mayor and Chief. Keep it up as there are more to follow

LMFAO; Are you his co-defendant? Stop crying;cry us all a river. And send that theif down the river! He will be singing like a canary! Grand Larceny,Embezzlement. He stated they have all been doing for years! Kearns,Louney,Cronin,Gallant,s ome sgts and lts are all going to be charged criminally; they can thank there blabbing c0-defendant,Tasca. Try and cry on the shoulder of one of the many good officers that he harrassed!
He is guilty by his own admission! I bet Kearns is going to be at Demouras door in the morning;"Good morning Chief,can I get you a coffee". This is just the beginning;Fitchburgs residents are going to recieve justice once and for all!! Our residents may make this a city holiday! This guy is a criminal!
He states he "kept the weeks of comp time in his head from 2001". He stated "the administration has been doing this for years,everyone".He attempted to pull the new out of town chief in on it. Do you know what federal charge it is for cooking the books? The justice department and the FBI will be setting up shop inside of Fitchburg to straighten everything out now. This is wide spread corruption,Mayor Wong will be passing the torch on to the Feds now.
The "Re-emergence of Fitchburg"; crime will go down;the tax base will rise;business will strive. The people will regain Fitchburg back from the grip of "the good ole boy network". Dignity,respect will return. Have you ever read the "oath" that officers swear to??? They took this oath and used it for toilet paper inside the FPD. The good people of Fitchburg have experienced this for years!
We will stand by our Mayor and assist her in fighting the union if they try and bring a frivolous lawsuit. We will sue Tasca and the Union if they file a frivolous lawsuit! Have you read any of his blatent admissions?

Keep the stream roller going, you need to go back and get Looney, Gallant, Richards and then move on the present day folks like Kearns, Fossa, Pappas, Bergeron, O'Brien, Martineau, Swears & Simos. Try a simple search of Fitchburg District Court for there names, small gold mine there. Don't worry about Charlie he was already a millionaire before this from an inheritance, maybe the city should levy it!

This is such a good day for Fitchburg! I don't know Tasca but I seen his crime and all his admissions. Consequences and equal treatment for everyone will go a very long way in the publics view as it is a necessary element of society that our police force has been looking past for well over a decade.
Nobody wanted to cooperate with this department;they were considered nasty un social,uncaring officers.
Hopefully they continue with this investigation and clean the rest out! We all want to cooperate in terms of assisting our police force but we don't trust them.
The publics trust of the police in Fitchburg has been broken! They don't wave,they don't say hello! They don't ever walk the street.
The communication is non existing. There are good officers in that department, but their are a lot of bad apples. They can be weeded out and replaced with honest officers that will respect the oath that they take.
A lot of people who post quote the word "service"; with "service" there is an intertwined "oath" that must guide that service. Read this oath as it makes ethical sense!
That was the best $5,000 that Mayor Wong has spent yet! Just the glimmer of hope of the citizens of Fitchburg will produce 10s of thousands. Fitchburg has a chance!! Tasca stole and got caught red handed! There is much more to come. If she cleans this force up to where it operates by it's oath, Fitchburg will rise in awesome pride!!! Today is a good day!!!!
Hire more detectives,more police to replace the thieving police and the corrupt ones. Who needs them??? Get rid of them! The citizens of Fitchburg will support an honest force! The one at hand is filled with corruption.
The move of bringing in a new chief from the outside was brilliant! The investigation was a masterful move. Now with other hearings and dismissals; a new mission statement and an internal affairs unit outside of the police department(no ex-police) will seal the deal.
I believe the justice department and the FBI will pick the investigation up from here. Thank you so much Mayor Wong! This has been so long overdue! It is our job to assist and support your honest efforts! Sweep out the corrupt ones!! The honest cops are smiling today also!!!!

Susie, Wow you nailed it! If everyone on this list goes; Fitchburg will recover! I don't know too much about Bergeron but the list you put out can be considered "the good ole boy" list of Brass members! Maybe Guilianni can give us a month to investigate this group! These guys will give direct links to others.

Including the names you mentioned and ten patrol officers that are linked in with this band; Wow this is possible. Imagine no corruption within the force? Wow ,it is actually possible. That would be roughly 16 total dismissals. The city could hire a 16 member anti gang /drug unit along with some fingerprinting kits to solve murders!
