A Few Bad Apples ...


... Or is the whole bushel tainted by the Greece PD scandals?

The bushel is tainted. The tree is dying an agonizingly slow death. Auberger could end this misery but can't set aside his ego to do the right thing for the people of Greece. It's time to shut down the pd and bring in the MCSO to watch over our safety needs until our corruption can be completely cleansed from every corner of Vince Tofany Blvd. Are you listening Jack Auberger?

It's the 'worm' we should be most concerned about. Vote him out in November!

Just so you know SCATS, I voted no but it never recorded it

To 12:45AM ~~ I've been here for awhile. The counter just posted a "NO" vote. Maybe you need to refresh the page... ?

Scats I tend to agree with you statement. However much of the corruption that happens within a police department is because of the "secret brotherhood" rules. It is not isolated to the GPD. Many police agencies afford such liberties to fellow officers, attorneys, judges, and senators, :)! There is favoritism and the public knows it but nothing is done to stop it. Of course I am talking of things like caught while DWI, speeding tickets, and other items of this nature. If these little indiscretions are so easy to sweep under the rug it is only natural that it progresses to bigger lapses in "judgment". Will it ever change? I doubt it, when our politicians and officials don't follow the rules and feel , and prove that they are exempt from laws that govern the little people. Coffee

Probably we need to let the county run things.

Auberger, who is really running things is incompetent.

I laugh out loud every time I hear about him as a "leader" Auberger hides behind everyone else.

To 9:21AM ~~ Oh, I know about the "Blue Code of Silence", as it's often called. My point is that it's become apparent that IN GREECE that code permitted MANY YEARS of such widespread corruption that it finally spiralled out-of-control with the Nick Joseph accident. As horrible as it may sound, I thank God for Nick Joseph! Without him, we wouldn't know anything was wrong at all!

In general, I have much respect for the police, firefighters, EMTs and the like. I just can't buy the idea that with so many GPD employees in such deep trouble that any of the rest are "innocent." Anyone who truly understands how a police agency operates knows that what I'm saying is true. I'm sure SOME of our cops in Greece did their jobs without participating in this culture of corruption. However, they should still be held accountable for allowing it to happen all around them and to us! It's their job to "GUIDE, SERVE & PROTECT" ... but they need to know it's US they are supposed to do that for, not each other.

On a related note, I want to know how a cop with a history like Schamerhorn's can be allowed to remain in law enforcement after his physical assaults on several women? I doubt this would happen in any other PD in the area and I see it as a sign that things aren't really changing all that much.

LADIES ~~ IF YOU GET PULLED OVER BY Off. T. SCHAMERHORN, MY BEST ADVICE TO YOU IS TO INSIST THAT HE CALL OUT SOMEONE FROM THE MCSO TO HANDLE THINGS. BASED UPON HIS TRACK RECORD, THIS MAN CAN'T BE TRUSTED!

Just saw the movie "Mississippi Burning" made in 1988 but about events in 1964. It was great. This was based on a true story about how the police corruption allowed and participated in usurping the rights of some in the community. The mayor knew all about it and could do nothing because when the police are corrupt they rule. Terrible how Greece is like a segregationist southern town in the 60's.

Greece is Podunk

If we were Podunk, we'd have Andy and Barney Fife. Everyone knows they were honest. Incompetent but still honest.
