An alleged break-in at the East Side Café. Maybe someone was looking for illegal drugs.

You should break in and look for something to strap on so you can satisfy your mother. Having a 1 inch member does that worn on skank on your mother no good.

Well this being Pittsfield, I won't be surprised if the halls of injustice choose to dismiss Capitanio's drug related charges, Especially when one consider that #1, Capitanio is related to an investigator in the Pittsfield Police Drug Unit, especially when one considers how honest they allegedly are, and #2, Capitanio is a respectable BAR owner in the city of Pittsfield, and # 3, Capitanio has "served" Pittsfield. Not necessarily well, but still, by Pittsfield standards, more than acceptable as a respectable city councilor even though for the most part he could be caught nodding off during the entire city council meetings until nudged by Lothrop the monster to nod his approval for whatever agenda had been pre-arranged. So there's that! And then of course, there's his kid's drug related death. So who cares if Capitanio and his alleged drug dealer exchanged at least 380 phones in less than two months time. This being Pittsfield maybe there's another plausible explanation to explain 380 phone calls between a respectable city councilor/ bar owner related to a Pittsfield drug cop and an alleged drug dealer in less than 60-days. Queerer things have happened in Pittsfield.

And its not as if illegal drug transactions were ever alleged to have taken place in Capitanio's fine establishment, right? Right! Because if something like that had occurred, certainly a highly trained Pittsfield drug cop would no doubt know if illegal drug activity was going on right under his nose, and especially right in his own family. Right!

I don't care if a drug cop in the PPD, a relative of Capitanio, swear on a stack of bibles before testifying to grand jury that he never revealed information about drug investigations to Capitanio. I'd be more incline to believe in the possibility that a relative of Capitanio, a drug cop in the PPD, would be more likely to be the source of information of an impending drug raid. I suppose there's a chance that Capitanio could have just by luck overheard a conversation while pumping gas of an impended drug raid, that just coincidentally involved a six degrees of separation situation, a case in which he's allegedly involved in a round about way. Especially when one compares the chances of that actually happening as opposed to hearing that specific information from a relative in the PPD. A relative in the PPD who just coincidentally is also a member of the drug investigation unit.

It doesn't surprise me that the DA's office is totally indifferent as to where Capitanio allegedly got such specifically reliable information about an impending drug raid. I recently stopped for gas, and as I stood there filling my gas tank, I noticed that filling ones gas tank is for the most part a solitary endeavor. As I drove home, I can honestly say that my recollection of filling my gas tank in the past has never involved me over hearing a conversation detailing the specifics of an impending drug raid. Perhaps the DA should be more interested in exactly where Capitanio got such specifically reliable information.

But still, former city councilor/bar owner, Paul Capitanio, even with his ties to LE/corrupt court system, is going to jail for tipping off his drug dealer[s] with ties to one of Berkshire County's biggest? Drug King Pins, RIGHT? Even with help from his mom, and his familes? money, where ever it came from. I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation to explain 380 phones calls between former City Councilor/bar owner, with relatives in LE, Paul Capitanio, and his drug dealer[s], in less than 57-days. RIGHT!

So Pittsfield City Councilor Paul Capitanio pleaded guilty to his felony drug charges and admitted that he got his sensitive information from some un-named suspect involved in law enforcement with whom Capitanio shared some personal relationship with.
