Parrinello Publicizes Charges Against Rahn

165 page document outlines 46 charges that Parrinello calls "petty"
Complaint says Town records were shredded, many while Rahn watched

"They never tell you what was shredded. If Deputy Chief Mackin was shredding his grocery list, you do not know." ~~ John Parrinello, Rahn's atty.

Parrinello plans to respond to the charges so that a public hearing can be set and the Town Board can decide the punishment.

“These charges do not amount to any one or more incident that would justify terminating Merrit Rahn." ~~ Parrinello


According to Loszynski document

Who was murdered in July 17,2004? The handcuff incident.
Does Rahn answer for jump starts for the AAA? Is he a used car salesman?
Thanks scats for making this so easily available.

Too bad the newspaper didn't do a little investigative reporting and look up the 2004 homicide in their archives. Maybe '04 was the year that guy knifed his family??

That was 2005.

Where the heck has the Stupidvisor and town board been in the last 10 years????? We have a rogue Police Chief, Assist Chief and rogue cops and the leadership of this town has been deaf, dumb and blind for the last 10 years. This is malfeasence in office if I ever saw it.

I'm not here to defend Merritt Rahn, but some of these charges seem a bit strained and so poorly constructed as to be easily refuted by a clever lawyer like Parrenello.

For example when Rahn spoke of Nick Joseph leaving the scene of the crime what was the context?
Was he speaking as a police chief applauding the criminal leaving the scene of the crime or simply observing about the case from the lawbreakers point of view. It isn't clear he condoned his actions?

Leave it to Greece to screw up a report.

To 12:23PM ~~ At least if we did screw it up, we did it with "the best" (Loszynski) money could buy :) I saw Parrinello on Ch 8 at noon. He called the charges "stupid."

8 friggin "investigators" + Supersluth of the NYSP, and this is what they come up with? Give me a break! Parinello has to be getting a case of ribwrap to ease the pain of fractured ribs from laughing.

There is not a single specification on that laundrylist worth the paper it's printed on.

Oddly the supersluths seem to have missed a few incidents such as an "accident" at Ridgeway & Long Pond when a Town owned plowtruck driven by a politician's son with a very high BAC totalled out a young ladie's personal vehicle. How about investigating which fund another politician wrote the check for her new car from. Which slushfund was that from? Why was that employee removed from DPW to another Town job? Who arranged for 911 center to have a computer glitch loosing records of the job?

How about who swiped the equipment from the Town owned sewer inspection truck in the DPW parking lot? Why wasn't that high value truck inside where it belonged that particular weekend? How did said theif manage to get in and out of the gate without being logged?

What happened to all those nice gas powered pumps the Town bought to assist homeowners during floods?

What happened to all the Town records from the old town hall.

Why is the Building Department requiring citizens to file FOIL to see public documents?

What's the truth about the Crista built Sr Center and the damage caused by frozen water lines that were improperly installed and why didn't the Town catch that? How much did that cost taxpayers?

If that's the best this team of SuperInvestigators can do Rahn ought to be carried to the Supervisor's office and annointed Supervisor for LIFE.

Have you turned those incidents over to the investigation team so they can look into them?

From the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle of July 18, 2004

Man is fatally shot by relative

A Rochester man was shot and killed by a relative Saturday while apparently violating an order of protection, town police said.

Officers were called to 238 West Hill Estates at 10:30 a.m. for a report of an attempted break-in. They found 43-year-old Russell Thurston of 600 Center Place Drive lying in the driveway, fatally shot in the torso.

Thurston was a relative of the homeowner, who had a valid Monroe County Family Court order of protection that barred Thurston from coming near the residence, police said. They would not identify the homeowner.

No charges were filed.
