Heard he's been in trouble for steroids before but ppd hid it like they did with that other one the jail guard. Uses confidential informants like they are blow up dolls. But instead eagle makes him look like an upstanding citizen! Lucky for him his kids aren't old enough to read they think dads in paper cause he's good.
Was this a football game against firemen?

Someone should be held accountable for a police officer who breaks the law and is allowed to continue to be a police officer while his command staff sweeps it all under the carpet. Granger, Wynn, Ruberto are as guilty for doing nothing as Kirchner is for doing illegal drugs.
Justice is certainly NOT alive and well in Pittsfield MA. Nice to see things don't change much in that town.
As with Watergate, the cover up is what always gets them. I'm sure if Pittsfield had a good newspaper with good reporters instead of a paper that's in the mayo's pocket there would be much more coming out of this story. But alas this is Pittsfield and along with the Stracuzzi, Massimiano, stories, this one will be buried and soon forgotten. So sad. Let's pray for justice.
and MicHELL Wynn should resign. Actually Wynn should be fired.
more crime

A fireman with alleged drug and stealing issues has been suspended. A Pittsfield fireman allegedly broke into a sportmen's club in another town and got caught. Who knows, maybe that was his mistake getting caught in another town. Because he faces charges in that incident. On Valenti's site it suggest that the Pittsfield fireman was stealing from the Pittsfield fire dept. and we don't know if the Pittsfield fire dept. covered for this fireman with drug and stealing issues or turned the information over to the Pittsfield police and if the PPD has brought any charges against the Pittsfield fireman. Who knows? Isn't it time for drug testing of firemen and cops and the results made public? And not drug testing of themselves by themselves. Maybe something a little more trustworthy.

Chief Wynn the great white worm has crawled to the top of the dung pile and declared cops/law enforcement officers to be shepherds protecting sheep from the wolves, he's called them "guardians of civilization." Shepherds protecting sheep from the wolves don't get fired and charged, guardians of civilization don't get fired and charged.

Well if the rumors are true it looks like another scandal is being buried, another cover up in PPD.
