Berkshire County DA discusses cops steroids case
PITTSFIELD - Berkshire County District Attorney David Capeless is finally talking about a steroid investigation that led to the arrest of two police officers.
Pittsfield Police Officer David Kirchner, who was a member of the Berkshire County drug task force, and State Police Sergeant Daniel Gale are accused of obtaining steroids for personal use.
Capeless says this investigation is not over, and it spreads outside of Berkshire County.
“I take very seriously any allegation that a law enforcement officer has broached the public trust by engaging in criminal activity, and I take just as seriously the reputation of all of the rest of us in law enforcement who honor that trust and continue to guard the public with integrity. Any decision regarding any further criminal charges relating to these circumstances will be made with a very clear eye towards those two principles but only upon completion of the ongoing investigation” said Capeless in a statement released today to dispel rumors that have developed surrounding this case.
which takes longer? completing an ongoing investigation or completing an ongoing cover up? not saying that is what is happening..just curious about weird stuff sometimes
Very interesting

Capeless is a piece of shit. There were allegations made that Capeless and some of his staff acted unethical when Bowler was running for sheriff. Capeless did back Bowler and made excuses for his staff members. I don't know if drug testing is mandatory for court or BCHC employees, my guess would be it isn't. Rumors can fly like wild fires on a windy day, but they'll still just be rumors. Don't expect Capeless to look for the truth, he probably knows the truth and certainly doesn't want it proven and documented as fact. I think it's, don't commit anything to paper. It simplifies things.

Well IF and it is a very big IF he prosecute the two cops he better be ready to prosecutes some of his own staff. Capeless will take a win over the truth everytime.

What other legal actions do you recommend being pursued in the case of the Adams kiddie porn guy?

Seems to me that if nobody has anything to hide, why not make random drug testing for all public employees mandatory -- teachers, courthouse personnel, administrative personnel, cops, judges, politicians, Selectmen, librarians, Pittsfield DPW workers, everyone on the public teat.
Now THAT would simplify things!
If they don't agree to do it, let them find work in the private sector where drug testing is common.

Can you cite the case where SCOTUS ruled that mandatory random drug testing for public employees is unconstitutional?

Heller, FACING BIG FINE, PONDERS NEXT MOVE

MONTEREY-
"...On Tuesday, Heller, a part-time resident of Monterey, was ordered by a U.S District Court judge to pay $160,000 in fines for exceeding the price ceilings set by the Department of Energy during the gasoline shortage caused by an Arab oil embargo. The DOE itself ordered him to pay an additional $54,347.98 for overcharging."

The following comment was posted to Dan PlanetValenti's web site.
It is followed by my comment including a few questions:

Mr. Valenti,

I am an officer with the PD and the union president. You know who I am because I have stopped you for a motor vehicle infraction before on North St. I would like you and everyone to know that we support both officers Mchugh and Ofc Kirchner fully. Both are highly respected officers within the department as a result of their work ethic and commitment to their fellow officers and their community. Despite what many, including you, may think these officers have provided a great service to this city over the years that has gone unnoticed as it does for all our officers except amongst each other. If only this city had an idea of what really takes place out there. The only source of information, the Eagle, barely scratches the surface of the incidents this department responds to. Over 40,000 calls for service a year and over 1400 arrests.

In regards to our Chief Michael Wynn, this union is also in full support of him and his ability to run this department. We have complete confidence in our chief and his ability to CONTINUE to take our department in a positive direction as he has done since taking over. Again, all going unnoticed since it does not sell papers or is not “Sexy” enough for your blog.

This department is made up of many incredible men and women who start their work days by putting on a bullett proof vest and no matter what you or anyone else says or may think of any of us, if you ever have to dial those three numbers…..We will always be there and it will go unnoticed.

Respectfully,
Ofc Marc Maddalena
President, IBPO 447
Pittsfield Police Patrolman’s Union

@Ofc Marc Maddalena,
Your preaching to the choir on every point you make, and thank you for coming forward to post an excellent comment.
Now a few questions that may be sensitive to some members of the Patrolman’s Union but which are meant in good faith and would appear to be legitimate given events these past few weeks in Pittsfield:
Officer Maddalena, in your official capacity as president of IBPO Local 447, can you please explain why PPPU is against mandatory random drug tests as part of the union’s collective bargaining agreement with the City of Pittsfield?
If police officers are enforcing stringent drug laws on the populace, should not officers themselves be held to the same (or maybe even higher) standards?
Given also that police personnel are on the public payroll and given that your taxpaying citizenry is being required to pay for yours and every public employees’ present and future medical care, isn’t it logical and understandable that taxpayers should want their local police (and all employees on the public payroll) to maintain good health and to keep away from the kinds of chemical substances that are known to do long-term damage to human health?
The random drug testing would be for the same kinds of substances for which the public most often is being held to account by law enforcement: cocaine, heroin, canabis, methamphetamines, and anabolic steroids.
Looking forward to your response to these questions, and thank you again for your long and healthy service.
