So you're saying that in this case a felony is ok? What's wrong with you, what kind of example does the set for our children?
are you kidding me get over the children whining; look at the city you live in with the drug dealers, hookers and sex offenders. they are already living in a crime ridden city and obviously you have no idea about the word suspension; they took this investigation with our tax money way to far when we should be using it for more important things in this dirthole.

You do realize that the town where your ISP is located is posted below your name. Wow's is located in Leominster, Lincolns's is located is Lowell, and Seriously's is located in Ashburnham, so they are 3 different posters. You on the other hand use a different screen name with every post, but they are all from Marlborough, so everyone knows it is the same person posting.

The problem with the Honor System is that an assumption is made that the people using the Honor System do actually have honor and a sense of integrity. Obviously, the Honor System is ripe for abuse in the wrong hands.......

The isp can an is manipulated on here! I am smack in the middle of Fitchburg! My Isp number shows malboro which is 30 miles from here! I am not the only one with a marlboro address! People on here discuss how to change the isp address.

You are just a trouble maker by nature! You are a cop, why are you scared to state that fact? It is foolish and childish!!

I've worked for two different state agencies in the past twelve years and neither agency let us tally compt time in our heads. It was recorded in the payroll records. You must be speaking of the agencies like the Turnpike Authority, Massport etc. The agencies that give the rest a bad name.

I read this forum from time to time, and post. Do you seriously believe that ONE PERSON, just one, is using an ISP from Marlborough? Why can't you just all learn to ignore the ISP, as it means absolutely nothing! Mine have come up from Boston, Newton Falls, and various other towns. I never know what it will say until it posts. It is the server that I am connected to at the time. Other posters also come up from those towns. It doesn't mean I am them, and they are me.
Give the ISP/same poster crap a rest. It is meaningless, and shows how paranoid and ignorent you are.

To those that want the FD investigated?

Guess what, dummies? 2 Deputies retired a few years ago and each gave back to the city well over 1500 (documented) hours a piece. They were not compensated for it. They lost it.

That's work they ultimately did for the city for free. Now say thank you, you ungrateful swine. Or is that different, it's OK when the shoe is on the other foot?

Ummm He’s probably talking about those agencies or some office of an elected official. Those agencies are the definition of corrupt. The elected official as in Teddy Kennedy’s case they use their political contact to get family members out of trouble, aka leaving the scene of an accident that results in a woman dieing, are the reason people don’t trust politicians. The Turn Pike Authority, FPD, and other agency’s like them are the reason that people are so suspicious of government agencies. The Kennedy’s and other politicians that uses their political clout to try and intercede in matters relating to family members give politicians a bad name. Bottom line is that all state and local agencies that show a hit of dishonesty should be investigated and all politicians who try and use their political office to intercede in matters for their family and friends should be investigated and removed from office.

No I understand that there can be multiple posters from the same ISP location (city, town), but this particular poster responded to one of my posts accusing me of being multiple people (who all post from different locations). That and the fact if you have been following the 4-5 different threads regarding the story, you would see that there is a person posting, where their ISP is located in Marlborough, with multiple screen names, who is obviously a single poster (one post after another with the same rambling content, delusions of grandure where he thinks the FBI is going to come rushing into Fitchburg because 1 officer has been fired for stealing, etc...). Call me out for doing something that you are doing yourself? Don't think so. And I'm not paranoid, I just find humor in the fact when a story comes out about a police officer who may have broken the law, people post on here that all police officers are bad, and need to be investigated, etc. I don't argue the fact that there are bad police officers out there, and when they are caught I feel they should be prosecuted. I'm sure there similar percentages to the amount of bad teachers, priests, CEO's, fast food workers, doctors, salesmen, office workers, politicians, and on and on. It is just obvious that these people have had a bad experience with the police, and use these boards to vent.

If the Tasca Embezzlement involves just one more member of the "brass" then yes the FBI will be here! It is there job! The FBI are not this mystical force that you only see on tv. They have been in little stoughton Mass investigating cops who bought stolen Best Buy gift cards!
Tasca has admitted to the fact that many others have been taken this money for years! He had the access code to get on the books in order to fraudulently change a posting to a different account where he gained financially! Sometimes I think you are either dumb as a stump or completely stoned!
I haven't hid any facts about my personal life. You nor anyone else can say anything bad about me! My Father was a spokesperson for the union when unions were working for the hard workers rights! My father also told me to stand up for your rights! Ever since I have always stood up for what was right and for my rights! Nobody is "better" than the next person;NOBODY! I notice the complete attitude of entitlement from these officers whom believe that they are above the law! When you allow this for even an inch it creats disaster and can put the officers and civilians unnecesarilary in harms way!
If people stood for righteous government more then we wouldn't be in so many wars! The Government isn't entitled to break the laws!! This can never be allowed! The FBI has a special task force that deals with these situations! And yes it is plausible that the FBI will come in to Fitchburg.
For one, we should welcome them here and continuously call for there assistance! Who do you think just arrested the 16 drug dealers from Fitchburg? They have been presenting their badges around town in bars ect..
Did they treat me bad? Yes! Did I file charges?Yes! Am I going to file more? Yes! Maybe you are not near the police in Fitchburg nor have you seen them act inapropiately but I have! I have clear evidence that proves that a Fitchburg officer totally abused his authority by harrassing me for his cousin! This is enough evidence in my world to have this person fired! You may even look at this behavior as a means of extortion! I called the health department on his cousin. His cousin in turned recruited this officer and had him harrass me! Then his cousin told me after I asked him what is up with that ? He told me straight out "You reported me to the health department so I had them harrass you." He stated this in a threatening behavior!
Then years later he did it again to me; and he left evidence of it all over the place again!! This time I filed numerous complaints with the Brass in Fitchburg that included Kearns and Louney; Both of which acted in a way that impeeded an investigation. I have a lot of witnesses to this harrassment; it is not just my word against theirs!
I will be filing again this coming week! My family still wants justice as they have been seriously mistreated by these guys! I have been encouraged to file suit by many friends around me. I don't want money besides what cost that I suffered due to their corruption! I will prevail!
I know from reports that I recieved that bergeron did recieve copies of complaints and paper work concerning this case. I am not sure what role he played at the time. I will recieve justice. As for the Tasca situation; I didn't do nothing to this man, he confessed to everything by himself. Anyone who justifies his and others stealing is not CREDIBLE at all!

"Tasca conceded that the comp time was not calculated inside a database, and that those working on the administrative level in the Police Department keep track of comp time on their own, based on how many extra hours they put in during a work week.
According to Tasca, the use of comp time in this manner has been the usual practice for Fitchburg police chiefs for years."
Now I have to ask? We know what account Tasca posted this "mind time" under! Did the others use the same accounts? Or did they post under different accounts?
Who else had the passwords to get into change accounts? Tasca was a captain for 8 years now and he still had the password to change the books?
These books must hold a lot of secrets?

You know, "the problem with the Honor System" is not only an issue in Fitchburg, and there are other ways of finding out what really happened without going to the FBI. It happened in my city too:
WORCESTER — A grand jury has concluded its investigation into allegations raised in 2008 by Police Chief Gary J. Gemme that several city police officers fraudulently manipulated their work schedules to earn overtime while testifying in court.

"Tasca admits to going into the computer system and changing days first entered as vacation time to a category called
"Other Time/Union/Department." "

Can everyone say "GRAND LARCENY"

Now how can he even state that Demoura okd the mind time? He changed the entry on the books!!!!

Just cooperate Tasca! Tell on others and you will not go to jail! Don't even waste your money appealing to the board!
