Greece Cop, Shaun Moore, Suspended


Internal investigation will review internal surveillance camera video following the arrest of  John Schneider, 51, of Marblehead Dr during a domestic dispute.

According to 13WHAM: "Lake Shore Fire District Chief Jared Meeker tells 13WHAM News that a medic crew was dispatched twice within an hour to the Greece Police Department. The second dispatch resulted in a patient being transported to the hospital by Greece Volunteer Ambulance.
Multiple sources confirm for 13WHAM News that the initial call resulted in a patient refusing treatment for injuries to his hand. The second call was for injuries to that same patient's head that required medical attention at an area hospital.

An arrest photo of Schneider provided to 13WHAM News by the Monroe County Sheriff's Office Jail depicts what appears to be swelling to his partially closed right eye and a fresh hospital bandage to his forehead above that eye.

While an internal investigation is ongoing, additional sources have confirmed Schneider made numerous threats to file a lawsuit while in police custody. All or some of what happened while Schneider was in custody was captured on video thanks to internal surveillance cameras."

"This is a wide-open investigation that we initiated based on things that we saw that we didn't particularly think were appropriate, so we will let the investigation play out," he said. "We don't want to leave it out there so someone can second-guess what we're doing. We're going to figure out exactly what happened, then figure out what to do once we get all the facts on the table." ~~ Greece Police Chief Todd Baxter remarked to Democrat & Chronicle.

 


SCATS ~~ Where have I heard that phrase ("We'll leave no stone unturned") before? Hmmm ... Oh, I know! When Loszynski conducted his $1,000,000 investigation into GPD several years ago, Auberger kept telling us that, over and, over and over again. Methinks that when it comes to GPD, several stones (cops) were left unturned and untouched. Now we can pay the piper ;)

Brandon Goater can assault a 15 year old and Baxter turns a cheek. And the mother of the 15 year old can't get a copy of the police report. Baxter cover up.

But this 51 year old ranting man gets a statement from Baxter and an investigation????

Smells fishy to me. Baxters kiss ups playing favorites.

who do you think Baxter was referring to with his second-guessing comment?

SCATS said...

To 9:38AM ~~ Who?

SCATS said...

To 8:45PM ~~ Since few, if any, of us know what you are talking about, how about some details about the specific incident? If none are received within 48 hrs, your comment might disappear. Thank you.

The minor was actually 14 at the time of the incident which took place at Olympia back in May. He was maced and punched in the face by Goater despite already being in handcuffs. His mother attempted to get a copy of the police report on THREE separate occasions. How come Baxter didn't call for an internal investigation?

SCATS said...

To 11:19AM ~~ Very interesting situation. TY for sharing it. Maybe there was no videotape ...?

I think the PD can be forced to provide the police report. A nice letter from a lawyer should do the trick when all else fails.

Until then, try this ~

The GPD website states: "With certain limitations, the Greece Police Department can issue you a report if you were the victim or perpetrator of a crime. Reports can be obtained from the Records Office at the Greece Police Department Headquarters.

How can a get a police report about someone else?

You must file a Freedom of Information request with the Town Clerk. New York State law determines what, if any, information can be released."

Here's a link to get an FOI request form:

This guy is no favorite of the PD. On previous occasion s he made threats against an officer and his family.

Ray Ray doesn't grant FOI requests. I know several who have tried and been denied.

Paging Parinello...another Greece man claiming his civil rights have been violated. Boo hoo.

SCATS said...

To 12:59PM ~~ there are ways of dealing with that ;)

To 2:04PM ~~ Under the current regime, I think every Greece resident has had their rights violated. Most are too tuned out to realize it.

The Town Clerk is the designated FOIL officer not Di Raddo. She has 5 days to determine if the request is proper and must tell the applicant one way or the other. She would then pass it along to the department that would have the information. Foil states that with exception of personnel info, if the information requested is documented, they have 20 days to provide the documents or request an extension of time if the request places an unreasonable burden on department staff that interferes with the daily business conducted by that department. It is important that you remember, that if no WRITTEN record exist concerning your request, they are not obligated to create a written document. If your request is denied, they must provide you with the reason.. The request must be carefully worded and must contain dates and times and location of the circumstances you want information about. This is the easiest way for them to deny your request as being non specific. They legally can do this so make sure you have that info.

This guy was bruised up from his domestic dispute. He refused to walk to the holding cell. He had to be carried, when he got to the cell he dropped about 6 inches. Civilian ride along witnessed the entire incident. Video also shows this.

SCATS said...

To 7:53PM ~~ That's why a cop has been suspended ;) lol

SCATS said...

To 6:36PM ~~ Yes, that's how thay are supposed to handle. However, I've heard about DiRaddo's infamous denials for years. I also know a few people who goaded him into making info available.

Moore was only hired cause his mother was bill rielichs secretary. He's been a loose cannon for years. Another auberger hire that I'm sure he can't recall

Nice to see gcsd hires steve chatterton who was forced out of the gpd for being corrupt and should have been fired with the rest of the rahn crew. He has no business working for the school district, just wants to keep his hand in w/gpd

Even tho he made it seem like he was sick of the gpd, just remember "you owe me"

And Voekl only got a promotion because his dad was Chief in Brighton.

6:36 The police have their own records access officer. The school's is the clerk. The town's is their clerk. The police dept's used to be Skip Beaver. That was about 15 years ago. Has that changed and the town clerk is the officer for the police also? I realize the beave went away quite a while ago but the position would have remained. What was his position called in the department? He was not a police officer but an admin with community or information. You are right about the procedure for obtaining records no matter which public agency in NY. But maybe the people should start with the police to save time. And there is nothing that prevents an agency from just giving you the record. But Greece in all its forms usually makes us jump thru hoops.

SCATS said...

To 10:50PM ~~ Chatterton wasn't forced out! He was PROMOTED!!!


To 11:20AM ~~ Greece NEVER goes beyond the intent of the law unless they are out to get someone.

Another thing to watch out for when dealing with Greece. Someone may call you and ask why you want this information. That means they have it but are concerned about your motives. This question is totally out of order and inconsistent with the law, They have no right to ask you What For before they give it to you. One of the town lawyers usually will be the ones asking the questions. This happened to me once and I told him it was non of his business. He agreed but said " I was asked by someone to ask" I responded by telling him to tell Jack he was out of line and none of his busines either. What worked for me was I went to the next board meeting and called Auburger out for delaying my request. The next day I got it delivered by special delivery. Worked for me it could work for you.

Isn't it funny how GPD comments on here?

It's unfortunate that Baxter has targeted Moore based on tip from one of the Baxter boys. Suddenly because Moore isn't one of them he's referred to as a loose canon. Remember Baxter promoted Chatterton and Phelan and now Voelkl.

Chatterton used to be Aubergers boy. Guess who the Baxter Boys are????

7:58 See this link.

And read the rest if interested. You are right that you don't need to give a reason. There is nothing to prevent them from asking you. You don't have to answer. You do have to answer under the circumstances (address lists) cited in this link. You have to answer but they can't refuse. They have the right to know only in that scenario.

SCATS said...

To 11:21AM ~~ Good info, TY!

Anonymous said...

11:21. Funny you should mention that regarding address lists. I knew I could not get that info so I did an end run on them. What I asked for was the Zip Code for all active Greece police officers by name. It was properly formatted and within the law. That's what drove them crazy. They knew( Aubuger ) what I was looking for and could not refuse the request.
Once received, I was easily able to determine where in Monroe County and adjacent counties each officer resided.This took place six years ago and the results were astounding. Of the 87 sworn police officers, 67% or 2/3 rds resided in Ontario , Wayne, Livingston,Genesee and Orleans counties. All this thanks to the hiring practices of John Auburger. The rest in Monroe. Very few, dating back to the Boily Riley regimes lived in Greece. Some of those few are still on the job. Those numbers do not lend themselves to the one time concept of a true town police force where all cops had to live in the town.

To 4:10 I can't blame them, I would want to live far away from where I worked as well. Could you imagine responding to a domestic at a neighbors house? Or bumping into someone you arrested at Wegmans? I wouldn't want to.

SCATS said...

To 12:02PM ~~ There is ALWAYS the chance you will bump into someone you arrested at some point in time, regardless where you live or work. We've bumped into Greece residents while visiting the Kennedy Space Center in Florida during Feb. break week.

This is a really lame excuse for not living where you work. So much for cops getting to know their areas.

Anonymous said...

12:02 In that scenario, you would actually be able to better handle that dispute assuming you know your neighbors . That fact would help you and them settle the dispute. In domestic disputes, as a rule, the combatants do not like strangers entering their home and tell them how to get along.
Scats is right. Familiarity with with residents and business people in the town is essential to being able to effectively deal with any situation involving these groups no matter what their concerns are. An effective town police officer would be a town resident for many reasons. Most important of them is the fact that if you live in the town, you have a personal investment in what goes on as this is your town, As a community member, you would develope a feel for the pulse of those who live here as oppossed to that of town you might live in outside of Greece. People in other towns really do have different priorities than those of us in Greece,

While understand what you both are saying, if it's me I just would want some distance. Personal preference. So I have no ill will if they choose to live else where. And they should serve the community no different where they live since we are investing in them.

Officer Moore is an amazing officer. Hetruly keeps our community safe and really has compassion for those in it. Unlike many officers I have seen. He truly cares. He deserves more awards then he has. Thank you Officer Moore. We believe in you! Don't ever change.

To 11:06PM ~~ How did that internal investigation turn out??
