MOSCA should also have to REPAY the entire amount it cost the taxpayers to change the Police Uniform Patch that had his name hidden in the picture.

He is a turd in every meaning of the word.

What did Mary do on the library board? Fail to fall don't and worship the state's least qualified Library Director. Fact one can not call herself a LIBRARIAN without a Master's of Library Science. Last I knew Crozier and 90% of her staff are not LIBRARIANS and it shows in the shallowness and age of the Collection.
But then like everything else in this town. Professional qualification is unnecessary as long as you are a Republican.

mosca will go down. one of the three or so people who are involved with him and who also may bear criminal liability for this fiasco WILL rat him out. I don't know which one. mosca probably does. someone will want to make their own deal and will agree to work with investigators and provide inside information.
its a classic police technique. rope in several people and you know one or more will want to save themselves at the expense of the main target.
mosca hasn't been a cop for years so he may not realize this, but he certainly does know which of them will talk and save themselves. too late for him.
mosca's era is ended.

Ooooh, Mr./Ms. "Professional Librarian," I would have thought you MLS would have prepared you to write a decent sentence, or proofread and edit your own comments, but apparently not. Guess you need to polish up your reference skills, too, since Old Saybrook's library director does in fact have an MLS. Where's the guy who keeps reminding us to "focus?" Why is the library being attacked? Your support of Ms. Hansen throws a poor light on her. If she's smart she'll keep you off her campaign committee.

Maybe you should check your own grammer and spelling. Seems to me that all of your lights in the closet are on dim.

Thank you. I know I am not perfect with my grammer and my spelling, but I try. This joker has a lot of nerve to be critical of someone else. He needs to go back to school.

I am a bit lost with following this side conversation about spelling and grammar. Seems one person (abc)does not understand that blog language is not always perfectly edited. A second (concerned citizen) tells the first (abc) to check his own grammar and spelling. Then a third (Don Mei)comments that person 2 (concerned's) grammar is perfect. Concerned accepts Don's compliment. Just whom is the joker that needs to go back to school?

Sorry for getting off track. Guess we needed to leave the seriousness for a bit. Some of need a laugh now and then. Meanwhile, I assure you that we are concerned about what has been going on in our little town.

Digressing to whos spelling and grammar is superior, I find amusing.

Perhaps, the type of off-topic conversations that take place in this forum can be made analagous with what goes on at the police commission meetings? Where inflating ones ego, along with condescension, takes precedence over letting the truth be known.

The question is how much more can Burnham's and Conklin's egos be inflated?

Right. I don't think there was ever any criticism of Concerned's grammar or spelling. And in fact I am aware of the internet convention of disregarding such niceties. I do in fact strike a wrong key (or miss one) myself sometimes.(Obviously) What I was objecting to was the fact that someone (Professional Librarian) made an unprovoked and ill-informed attack on an institution and an individual entirely unrelated to the topic at hand, and did so while trumpeting their own supposed superiority. It just rubbed me the wrong way. Guess I should have chosen a different way of saying so.

I am sorry but my comments were not off the topic at hand. That topic being Mary Hanson taking on the cabal (both R &D)that has run the town of Old Saybrook for far too many years. Her current focus is on the corruption at the OSPD.
It was MO from MO who brought up Mary's previous involvement on the Library Board where she ran hard into the incompetent Director.

I beg you to check the actual suit. The Old Saybrook Policeman's Brotherhood Association is a lot closer to the Old Saybrook Policemen's Benevolent Association than the McMurray-Kirtland Fund is. Furthermore as a good lawyer Childress should have advised his client that there was not a "benevolent assoc." but rather a "brotherhood" assoc. in preparing her final wishes.
He did not do this though because all the while he knew that he would funnel this money to Mosca and OBrien
Who do you think Mosca and O'Briens landlord was at the laundromat ???
You are right - It was Childress. These plans had been laid forth a long time ago. There connections run even deeper. Do a little research and you will see.
Don't miss the part about "secretary" Klingerman and the botched tax numbers. When all else failed she tried to provide the lawyer's office with the town's tax number.
Somebody left more than a few loose ends undone. They are definitely proof that there is no such thing as a perfect crime.
I cannot wait for the blame game to begin. My bet is on Childress being the rat.
For more entertainment check out the connections between the police commissioners and Mosca. It's a real eye opener.

I am very good friends of Chuck Della Rocco. Chuck left the department because he saw the writing on the wall. Spera and him do not get along and never did. It would only have been a matter of time before he would have been fired by Spera. Anyway, Chuck has filed a suit against Mosca and Spera but is unable to come up with the $350.00 needed to file it in US District Court. The lawsuit staes that he was discriminated against because of a work related injury. I think money should be raised on his behalf. He is a Police Officer with the state and has two children and a stay at home mother. What do you think?
Chuck Della Rocco is an awful police officer who looks at porn during work, why help him? Not saying Mosca and Spera are any good either, I have no intentions of siding with any of those scumbags!
