Wong says 'huge chunk' to be cut from budget - Sentinel & Enter...

It's too early to say whether any city employees can expect to lose their jobs for the next fiscal year, Mayor Lisa Wong said Wednesday, but significant cuts must be made to solve a $2.4 million budget deficit caused by rising health-care costs, pensions and utilities. Full Story

Unnh....Dude? I made one comment out of 60 some odd here. Darn' Tootin' and I generally don't agree, but we also don't continually butt heads either. It's unlikely either of us will change our views, so we don't normally waste the effort on each other. You should actually try reading all the comments my friend....

Where is this former Police officer? Tell me where we can find a FPD cruiser??? This department is seriously inept!!!
I will go face to face with you over the facts!! There are 4 cruisers on duty! Most of the FPD is RUDE,Disrespectful to all citizens! They are seriously inept!
There is no way to solve this FPD issue in Fitchburg but to clean out the entire force! I will stand on the podium in front of Union members in Fitchburg! This force is INEPT! PERIOD! They endanger our lives!
If we cleared out the entire FPD and had feds come in till we replaced every single FP then Fitchburg will grow! Until then we are stuck in the mud with the deplorable force that we have protecting us!
Why don't wed conduct a test of how an officer approaches and treats civilians of Fitchburg. Lets go undercover and record their daily routine! I will volunteer!!
Do you think 63 minutes is ok for an arrival time on a cold night, a monday night in Fitchburg?? There must of been a total of ten people out in the entire Fitchburg!!
Fire them all as a matter of public safety!!! Fitchburg deserves better than the inept force that we have now!
Besides the Chief NONE of these FPD care about solving crimes!!!! Enough!! They all just want to PORTRAY that they are BIGSHOTS!! ENOUGH!!!!
The FPD budget is big enough for the city to hire a force of officers who actually want to work! The current force is a bunch of entitled thriving selfish rude and inept in their jobs!!
I live in Fitchburg and I can tell you for FACT, this force is seriously INEPT!!!!! This former PO should open his financials up for review!! I wonder if there is evidence of the norm for the bloated OT scam in these records?? Shame on all the crooks who STOLE, FUDGING STOLE, like slimey thieves out of the FPD budget for their own greedy criminal selves!!
I wouldn't do that if I were you. Someone already tried that and got arrested and put on probation for doing just that. Maybe you should consider running for Mayor instead?

Stamos, what is your point? That I would have guts to manage the city properly and to hold people accountable if they didn't shape up?

Is it really that bad where you cannot say anything about a department working dysfunctional?

In case you missed the headlines. There were a few FPD officers fired since. The city attorney stated to others that they were next to be investigated but had retired the day before.

Stamos, I have a letter with the official FPD heading addressed to me concerning my conversation with Chief Demoura and Sgt Fossa. This letter clearly states that a memo was given to each officer explaining that the professional conduct CMR for officers to be reviewed, read and adhered to.

In other words Stamos the Chief agreed that there were serious rudeness issues that needed to be addressed and if you ask citizens today they will tell you that they have seen a change for the better in this regard!

And another thing this post that you have posted is obviously in reply to another post which you haven't included. Attempting to repost out of context is an old Republican strategy that doesn't work any longer. People think beyond.

I would have to agree more with you than the other two that absolutely have an over abundant hatred of police. Not sure where that comes from...But oh well. I guess you had three encounters with the only nice police officer to ever wear a badge in that city....Or that officer stole you blind and you don't know it yet.. Please those two guys make it sound like the entire force is just wasting tax dollars and doing absolutely nothing. I worked there for quite some time. There are a lot of decent hard working men and women there. Sounds like these two have had thousands of encounters with all those horrible police officers and had a bad experience every time...Yet you had three very good encounters....Go figure...To all the cop haters out there.....what goes around comes around....That is not a threat by the way just an old saying....

First off. You have no idea what you are talking about. There are usually between 5 and 7 cruisers on the street at any one time. At one time when staffing was up there were 13 officers on two of the shifts and 14 or 15 on 3-11 shift. There were also 2 Sgt's per shift. So if we just estimate that there are 13 officers per shift that is 39 that work patrol and then there are 6 supervisors. My math is 45 not the measely little 24 that you put in there. Not to mention there are usually others in a special unit depending on man power. Then there are the members of both the Detective Bureau and the Drug Suppression Unit that are out in the streets as well. So if you figure there are at least 6 of them then you are looking at 51 bodies that are out putting their lives on the line. So my advice to you is if you have no idea what you are talking about then perhaps you should not talk at all till you get your facts straight.
This retired officer is interesting. This is the same officer who posted on the Louney resignation thread!

He states 5-7 cruisers per shift. I was told by the FPD that is on 'recording" that there was unequivocally 3-4 on Friday and Saturday night.

Then the overlay was implemented making it 4-5 on Friday and Saturday night for four hrs of that shift but still 3-4 in the middle of the shift as the chief stated at the forum.

There seems to be more now. See how people are misinformed? Even ex-police do not have the correct numbers.

Lynch, I provided the link that puts that post in context.

Isn't it ironic that you got yourself arrested just 6 weeks after that post for doing just that? Do you know who posted that Lynch and did you provide the Feds with the name of a possible suspect? They seemed very angry at the cops and Iím sure the Feds would be interested in knowing who posted that. And why are you giving me crap, Iím just answering your request for information?
Geez, being employed as a "Federal Investigator" and all one would think you'd be thankful someone was helping with making your job easier.

Again Stamos, I did thank you as you brought it all to light. But honestly, I do not get what you are trying to accomplish here?

Stamos, I still think that the city council should debate the police contract instead of just taking the rubber stamp out and stamping it!

It is proper management which is the goal. I feel that you feel that no one can say anything if they disagree with how things are being run!

You state that I was angry. Just because I express the want for discussion and debate this makes me angry?

I was FALSLY ARRESTED, what part of that do you not understand? As people like yourself will not let that case go I feel that it will come back for review as I am not going to allow you nor your little group to constantly harass me over a situation that I took a lot of unjust hits over, Period!

You make absolutely no sense with these posts! I use to think that you were Conry as he stated at the forum,"it seems like you have an ax to grind with the police"?

So, if anyone feels that the police contract should be discussed then that person must have an ax to grind?

If a citizen or a candidate expresses that they feel that there is serious mismanagement within its police department then that is an "ax to grind"?

So, when the Mayor, Chief of police and the city attorney speaks of corruption within the police department do they have an "ax to grind"?

I will never shy away from the truth! Bring it, lets go there!!

Lynch, could this be that same guy that posted in the link above. It makes sense because he seemed really pissed at cops and it was right around the same time you got arrested too. Man, this guy is scary. I think the Feds would be interested in who he is. Have any ideas?

Here's the link so you can put it all in context.
http://www.topix.com/forum/city/fitchburg-ma/...


"If any of these cops swung on me I would break their necks! It is way past due time that we start fighting these SCUM cops! They hide behind their badge, they are worse than criminals, they beat their wives!
The public is getting steamed! These cops should all lose their fucking jobs!! Why should they be allowed to openly assault who they want when they want! If a cop put their finger on me I will break it off! These guys are criminal THUGS who hide behind their badges!!!! They took justice out in the street by jumping and punching this guy repeatedly! They need to let this guy go free!!
How dare u justify this pigs behavior! These cops are no better than a criminal thug who beats elderly women!"

"too bad the guy didnt crawl back to his car if he had a gun and put a few in the foreheads of those thug cops!!
When r u going to wake up and smell the coffee? The government is a corrupt mob! They run gambling enterprises and they get a dollar from every case of beer sold!
Then u have the police "who give SERVICE"; someone please explain this "service thing to me? 8 stateys beating one guy? Let me ask you cop lover, if u were any further up their shute you wouldnt have to explain to me why you had poop on the top of your sneaker! If 8 guys beat one guy, what type of time would he get? If you got caught beating a guy with a club while he was handcuffed to a pole, what type of time would your lovers give you?
These cops broke the law! They assaulted this guy! You are wrong, their are many witnesses to this scene!
Get a clue, cops are on the take! Where have u been?? u need to go out more often. Nobody trust cops! You would have more respect if you asked a gangster for assistance than a modern day cop!"

Stamos, what is your point? Here are quotes from this post above "They took justice out in the street by jumping and punching this guy repeatedly!"
"If 8 guys beat one guy, what type of time would he get? If you got caught beating a guy with a club while he was handcuffed to a pole, what type of time would your lovers give you?
These cops broke the law! They assaulted this guy!"
So, it seems to me that this person is commenting on a particular incident? HUH?
Again, what is your point??
I believe that a cop who beats a suspect while he is cuffed and/or cuffed to a pole with a weapon should be FIRED immediately and put into prison! What are you not getting?
Seriously, what is your brain malfunction, here? The California officers who shot into the truck thinking it was Dorner? They should be fired asap and charged!!!!!
If we are at a point such as this in society then all bets are off, it must become all men for themselves!!! This is not civility ! It is criminal, period!
Stamos, let me ask you this ONE question. Do you think that the California cops, who shot 120 rounds into a pickup truck which contained a 70 year old woman and her grand daughter delivering newspapers, should get fired? PLEASE explain your answer!
Uh oh

Stamos! You owe me lunch. I know-let's forget the hot dogs and we'll meet at Campus for a delicious Greek pizza. You're buying, of course. See you at 10:00?

STFU. you're still not funny. And mind your own beeswax, I'm talking to Stamos. Why is it you're always piping in when I'm trying to talk to him? Real soon after he and I post too. Say... Could you really be Stamos? I bet you are! Dual personalities!!! Ha Ha the Greek imbecile!

Stamos, I'd wish you a Happy Easter, but it's not Greek Easter yet. How come you Greeks can have Christmas the same time the rest of us do, but Easter time is always (or almost always) different? And why is Easter on Cinco de Mayo this year? What if I'm half Greek and half Mexican, what should I do? Go eat lamb with Yia-yia, and Papou, or go to Ixtapa and eat tacos, drink Dos Equis, and shoot Patron shots with mi amigos?

Anyway Stamos, I'm not always pissing with the candidate. Why do you hate him so? What did he ever do to you?

See you, Stamos!!!

I certainly hope not but wouldn't put it past him. I believe he's been wanting to be armed now for quite some time.

I'm sorry, Stamos. I didn't know you'd get so grumpy about it.

But anyway... Maybe I told a fib. BUT I was just trying to be a good Republican. I wanted you guys to like me, but I see it backfired. Why don't you go back in in the archives and find how I lied to you, and remind me? Then I'll know what I did, and I can work on redeeming myself.

And what do you have against lamb? Do you like sheep? I mean mutton? Is sheep the same as mutton, or is it a contextual issue?

And anyway, you ARE a liar. You are a Republican, plain and simple. I know, it's hard to accept because it is pathological in nature, but the sooner you face it, the sooner you can move on with your life.

Forget the little annoyances (like the candidate) and tackle the bigger issues. Like who's going to beat Hillary in 2016. Nobody. That's right, NOBODY.(I miss you maligning her). SO bring it on. I know it's early, but come on, let's talk 2016!!!

See you, Stamos!
