and deviants and perverts and creeps and sadistic killers. But I'm sure you'd believe that cops are the good guys even after you watched the video of the cops beating a mentally ill homeless man to death. Cops are liars and thugs and sadistic dirty pricks.

MicHELL Wynn should be proud of the values he's instilled in the Pittsfield police, what a load of bullsh*t.

The racist city had to be embarrassed into helping out its unfortunate homeless people. It is truly a proud city.

Embarrassed into helping, more likely just holding out until someone came up with a $45,000 donation they could get their hands on. Satan helps those who help themselves.

Don't look for the bookkeeping on these funds. But if it turned out that $42,500 of this money wound up in someones pocket it would not surprise me. It might even have been designed that way considering the players involved.

Police Chiefs, prosecutors, pastors, and boy scout leaders protected and shielded pedophiles for decades. Thus allowing the respectable pedophiles among them to prey on innocent children without fear of any interference while Satans Little helpers protected them.

"a 2-year-old who looked so tired, his eyes are about to pop out,"

You people, the current crummy mayor and all the other crumbs, make me sick. Never mind winter is coming. Winter is here, now. There's no reason for children to be homeless and hungry and so tired their eyes are about to pop out in Pittsfield. You people make me sick! Jesus CHRIST! You make me sick!

$45,000 for staffing and security to add maybe eight cots to the shelter on the coldest nights in winter comes out to $5,625 per homeless guest. I hope that get a mint on the cot.

Or $62.50 per night for 90 nights equals $5,625. Or $1,875 per month. Or $15,000 to cot eight homeless souls a month.

Is that single family home in the ghetto on Circular Ave, rehabbed at a cost of $316,000 still unsold even though the city reduced the price to $79,000 after spending $316,000 to rehab it? Maybe the city can put up the 2-year-old who looks so tired his eyes are about to pop out in that empty property in the ghetto rehabbed at a cost of $316,000 and then listed for $79,000. The city should send the tax bill to Ruberto, Ruffer, and Krol.

Advise for dealing with the homeless and homelessness in Pittsfield. Attack it early! By early, I wonder if they mean before the blizzards move in and the homeless freeze to death in sub-zero temperatures. Who knows? But anyway, the discussions on how best to deal with the issues the homeless will continue next Monday.

Does chief Wynn really need an unmarked new explorer to haul his ego around ?

Jesus, I really thought he was getting a SRT military drone to go with his $300,000 SRT military vehicle with battering ram. Well, maybe he still is. Maybe the new unmarked explorer is just to haul his fat ass around town, and to church so he can show off his videos/slides of his trip to Israel. Slides of him taking a dip in the Red Sea, and getting terrorist training from the Israeli Police. And I heard his wife dumped him, so he probably needs a new explorer to go the market.

Or maybe it's his reward from the crummy mayor for solving the mysterious case of the heist of $305 from a safe in city hall. An inside job pulled off by some NA riffraff who was somehow able to infiltrate Pittsfield's city hall, cleverly disguised as a hired janitor, for a job in Pittsfield's city hall (because I'm sure there wasn't anyone who lives in Pittsfield and is qualified to sweep floors. clean toilets, and break into a safe in Pittsfield's city hall). So it appears someone in Pittsfield felt the need to import riffraff from NA to steal from Pittsfield taxpayers. And chief Wynn knew something had to be done to solve this mysterious case of the missing $305. Maybe he'll go to work on solving the mysterious unsolved case of the missing $9000 from PHS. Or maybe that case was successfully covered up. Or the alleged fraud in Pittsfield's water department. An alleged OT fraud, allegedly involving nearly a half a million $$$$$$$$$$ Allegedly! There were rumors that NA's cast off mayor Barrett found something rotten in Pittsfield's city hall. Maybe MicHELL Wynn should start with him. He may have some clues to solving this mystery.
