While the NP Police Department has a majority of fine upstanding officers, they also have some bad apples. If we want to get really nasty letís talk about Alesiano trying to run his wife over a few years ago. His wife is a New Phila police dispatcher or maybe it was his previous wife. Who knows, itís good gossip. Maybe he got drunk and violent and decided his wife needed to be flattened. Why would his new wife marry him if that happened? Oh and she was fired by NP police dept. for cussing someone out and then rehired by Dover police department. Therapy for his current wife may be in order. He is bad news and people need to be checking out his character and credibility. He has an awful work record, but no one is persecuting him because he is a cop. He is also friends with Chief Urban and Detective Goodwin. Letís get some more juicy information out there. Chief Urbanís son burned the American Flag or cross, I canít remember, and ran over innocent helpless geese. PITA where are you? Maybe Urban had an axe to grind with Dick Farrell for writing about that. Between Chief Urban, Amanda Spies and her husband Detective Mike Goodwin they botched the Anthony Harris case. Oh and donít let anyone forget that Amanda Spies met her husband, Detective Mike Goodwin, while she was married and had an affair with him. This makes Goodwin a marriage wrecker. And did I mention that Amanda Spies was found drunk and passed out on the bathroom floor with pissed pants at a police event. I think we need to consider her to be a drunk prosecutor. Maybe Dick Farrell had good reason not to endorse her. I am sure his wife not getting the endorsement led to ďill feelingsĒ from her husband, Mike Goodwin, and he has had an axe to grind with Dick Farrell ever since. He has been a bomb ready to explode because he thinks he is big, bad and tough and wanted to show him whoís boss. These people are the ones that need to be exposed for their holier than thou, above the law attitudes. People love this dirty laundry and donít want to know the truth because they are nothing but a bunch of gossips with nothing better to do.(keep going to my next blog, thereís more)

The TR story on Dick's departure was truly amazing. In one paragraph they thank him for his years of service and say how the community should be thankful to him. In the next paragraph, they completely throw him under the bus.

Why would they do this? It is shameful.

The "story" that the TR reported was nothing more than an incident in a police blotter. Names are NEVER mentioned in the police blotter.

The story also reported what the Dover offfice wrote in his log. What if the words he used were not accurate to describe what he saw or "thought" he saw? For those of you who like to jump to conclusions, let me make this clear for you.

Suppose I am a police office. I see you in a park with your hands in your lap and tell you to "quit masturbating". I can truthfully report in a log that I told you to "quit masturbating" even though you were just sitting there. Now if someone reports the contents of my log they will think you are a pervert even though you did nothing wrong.

But the people love the juicy stuff.

Shame on all those involved in spreading this "rumor".

Hey Liberty 50:

I have yet to see anyone drive a drunk home from the back seat of a car.(both parties)

Perhaps that would make the center ring show next time the "Big Top" and Ringling Bros. come to town. Throw in a clown dressed like a Cop,(that won't be a problem) with his little steno pad, a little cotton candy, a trapeze act, and now you have got something worth the price of admission.

Give me a break and a Lion Tamer, would you??

Hey Newsprint,
Sounds like you are a digruntled former employee. I would like to know where you got your facts, actual facts. Did you see the police report? Maybe Alesiano was low enough to dishonor his badge and oath to aid and abet his friends Urban, Goodwin and Spies. Maybe you just want to get your jollies when the Big Top comes to town. Sick!

no matter how you feel about DF - I think it was crappy of the TR to not let him go out quietly.
He was with them for 36 years! Why did they mention the police log?

Hey newsprint, I agree with liberty50. I didn't read any where in the T.R. article that they were in the back seat.If you have a copy of the police report that says that, maybe you would like to share it.Otherwise maybe before you write something you should check your facts

touchy, touchy....Liberty was that you that suggested just simply fold your hands in your lap if approached by the DPD at 3:30 a.m. I am sure we all remember the lille kid's story that went something like "here's the Church, here's the steeple, and open the door, and there is the "one eyed monster".(brilliant, you must be one of our stellar defense Attorney's in town!!) I think that was it. The Editor gaught caught with his pants down, and it looks as if we may not even need a daily rag to print, unless of cousre you are training a new puppy. So be it, Dick, you are better on the key board then on the harmonica. This too shall pass....maybe a nice mea culpa for starters!! Trousers up!!
P.S. Why would you be masturbating (your words) when you are so damn to get a ride home, maybe the car has vinyl seat covers??

I've decided Newsprint could not have possibly been in the news industry. He thinks he is a deep writer and thinker but makes no sense whatsoever. And if he was in the news industry he was poor at best. He can't even make a sentence flow properly. The editor didn't get caught with anything down. That must be your imagination running wild just like it did with the circus coming to town. I've noticed you concentrate on the porno side of translation. You must get yourself all worked up just imagining something that didn't happen. Still sick!

Jesus, Newsprint. What kind of idiot are you? You can't even follow along and keep things in order when they are posted right in front of you.

It was me that used the "masturbation" hypothetical. I figured I would discuss a topic you were very familiar with. It figures that you would mess that up.

So hear you are, repeating rumors - or versions of rumors - and you can't even follow along on some posts. Maybe you should just quit before you prove yourself to be an even bigger fool.

All the gossip reminds me of the childhood game "telephone".

Hello out there, Tuscarawas County bloggers.

In the words of Popeye, I can't stands no more.

As I read the comments on this story, I just have to express the following opinions, and the reader can take 'em for what they're worth.

I wasn't born in Dover-New Philadelphia, but I spent a number of "growing up" years there, and I can say that Tuscarawas County is a pretty good place, that I always brag about when I'm given a chance. It's beautiful place - an area of good people with its fair share of lunatic fringe.

I wouldn't Know Dick Farrel if I saw him, but I have read the TR for ages, and always will, and so will the lunatic fringe, gives 'em someone to look down on...

A couple of quotes come to mind when I read some of the comments on Mr. Farrel's departure from the TR, like.....

"It isn't very pretty what a town without pity can do" (Gene Pitney circa 1964)

"Let him who is without sin cast the first stone" (Jesus Christ, a few months before he was nailed to a cross for his radical beliefs)

"Boy, I don't remember ever reading a police report in any newspaper that suggested two named adults go home to their respective spice [plural of spouse, right?]" (that one's me speaking)

Let us say a prayer for Mr. Farrel, Tuscarawas County and yes, for the lunatic fringe that want to blame Mr. Farrel, in particular and the "media" in general for all that is wrong and unjust in their worlds.....

Peace
