Politics Intimidation and a Timeline please
Original post made by True Blue on Dec 1, 2010
For instance what was the exact date of your cancelled deposition, or the closed session council meeting or the visit to your home from officer Lynch? At what phase was the audit (phase one two or three)?
I know for example, that you wrote several e-mails around September 26th and the 27th of 2006 to the city planner, that state that you were not the plan checker of record and had not ever seen the final plans for certain out of conformance properties that were featured in the finance directors audit of the Building Dept. These documents were not ever made available until the late fall of 2007, although numerous public records requests had been made to obtain related documents. The reason given by the city attorney (then Mr. Hynes) was that that they were subject to POTENTIAL litigation--this was an illegal denial of a Public Records FOIA request, and may well fit into the chronology of extreme suppression of certain facts that may also explain the intimidation that you as the source of some of this information, then experienced. My own guess is that enormous power and influence was brought to bare, in order to protect a few special people by subverting the function of police dept. into a private security detail for those above the law. What the police put you and many others though during that time frame was an inexcusable abuse of power.
A timeline that included both your experience and the harassment of Mr. Johns would help everyone absorb what happened here so that correction might occur.
