At one time in my life I trusted and looked up to the pittsfield police officers. No more. I'.ve see much shadiness the last ten years. Back to paul,he has a good heart but got sucked into the huge drug problem in Pittsfield . The tragic loss of his only son had to be unbearable. He's caught up in something big. What I don't understand is why was he against the clinic in pittsfield. What i understand is that well over 50 persent of Providences (Holyoke) clientel are from the Berkshires. Just because it didn't help his son does't mean other people won't benefit from it.
and thugs. Shadiness is one way of putting it. But it doesn't even come close.

I'm sure Capitanio and his lovely wife can always exploit the death of their junkie son for sympathy. I didn't believe his excuse that he wanted to spend more time with his family and grandkids as his reason for not running for re-election.
But on another note wasn't it rumored that a dispatcher tipped off a depot for drugs, an open market for drug dealers, of an impending drug raid? A drug raid in which no drugs were found on a weekend night at a dive where it was rumored some of Pittsfield's finest go slumming.
My dear good hearted friend "the junkie"who the methadone clinic in Springfield supplied enough methadone to supply him for the weekend storm when he passed away because they would be closed. He was whole heartedly trying to kick that addiction. You, you perfect human being,has never had a problem in your family apparently. Keep hating everything and everyone and go climb into a hole where you don't have to see what's going on in the world. Do you want to post your name or would you rather I do it for you?

Don't threaten me. My limited experience with junkies is that they're liars and manipulators, and they do horrible things. Does it really matter if he died from abusing methadone or if he died from shooting heroin? Being a junkie is not an accident. Are you not assessing any of the blame for his death on the junkie who chose to shoot up poison? Or is it everyone else's fault that he was a junkie and died?

Hey Nick! oh I'm sorry "potious" I won't mention your last name in case there's something to be embarrased about. Was it heroin? I thought as a good friend of his I would know. Must be pretty close to their family to know this inside info.
See city hater, easy as pie to figure out who someone behind these fictitious names are. Why not use your real names, afraid people will see you don't live in a glass house with no demons in the closets?

Are we led to believe that the beagle is on a local crusade for truth now after all the years of being the exact opposite and protecting the elite.

Is this also why the loser praxis33 hasn't posted in days now? His suggestive and violent threats are known by all here and yet he was an ardent supporter of the beagle.

Wasn't there a rumor about cops caught up in a drug bust? Maybe that got covered up. Well anyway, Egremont cops used some tool from the police chief's desk to remove the doorknob to the evidence room and then broke into the evidence locker just to take look at a large stash of illegal drugs. Chief Bucknell no doubt would be so proud of her sworn officers.

Pill popping council member[s], because who really knows. Goose stepping cops on OT prancing up and down Pittsfield's multi million $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ cultural district. $80M-$100M $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ at least for a new high school. Oh and former chief Riello will be joining the school committee.

Maybe something very spooky. But I would like to know when the Egremont cops will have their day in court after using a tool from the police chief's desk to remove the doorknob/break into the evidence room and then break into the evidence locker just to have a look see at a large stash of illegal drugs, so they say.
And have any Lee officials filed a criminal complaint against the former Lee police chief for improperly billing the town for $5000 in cell phone charges for himself, his wife, and his kids cell phone use? The former police chief who is facing extortion and money laundering charges in connection to an alleged scheme to steal toy funds meant for disadvantaged kids, that police chief.

Rumor has it that he will be plugged right in to run the school committee taking the place of last power monger Barbalunga. That school committee controls almost 100 million dollars and decides where it gets spent so they want to make sure their people are going to vote the way they are told to vote. And two of their members are going to the city council to shore up that sure vote situation.

I agree, and they do such a great job of making it look so corrupt and unethical.

I watched him on that crummy show with the old judge. He was evasive with his answers about his family history. The judge, Bianchi, Riello, and another man talking about the good old days of Pittsfield's respectable Italian families.
