PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, THE WEEKEND EDITION OCT. 1-3, 2021) — Is it just THE PLANET or …

— Are Greta Thunberg and Chucky the Crazed Doll the same person?

— When Greta Thunberg talks, does anyone but the most gullible “wokes” listen?

— Wasn’t Thunberg one of the droids in Star Wars, R2Me2?

— Kamala Harris, who has some job on the public trough, just made a “major” speech. That explains the early appearance of snowflakes.

— Speaking of “woke,” Deanna Puffer … sorry, Suffer … no, that’s not it, Ruffer … yeah, Ruffer … didn’t she cancel her season’s pass to the laundromat when she found out she had to separate the whites from the colored?

— Did Andrea Harrington invent the selfie stick?

— Did Hamish Linklater, who plays the priest on Netflix thriller Midnight Mass, learn how to deal with horror while growing up in Great Barrington, Mass., during his visits to downtown Pittsfield?

— Can Charles Ivar Kronick win in Ward 2 on his name alone? It’s worthy of a Charles Dickens’ moniker. He is the only candidate who has mentioned the disgrace of Hill 78.

— Is Kronick’s opponent, Matt Kudlate, more than just an administration stooge who will secure Ward 2 for The Suits? Give him this much. He has publicly criticized the bike lane at NON.

–After Kevin Morandi, do the two Peters, Marchetti and White, think those 9-2 votes are a little too close for comfort? Tyerland won’t be happy until it’s a 11-0 council. The administration wants the cownsill to throw more shutouts than Warren Spahn and Juan Marichal combined.

— Is THE PLANET‘s gig as a script doctor for a major Netflix series (that we contractually can’t name) mean that this blog’s days are numbered? Or can THE PLANET keep up the pace without it turning into an American horror story?

— Are the “Peter Marchetti” and “Peter White” signs appearing in tandem because they are lonely? Rumor mill: Peter M. bought a new bathroom scale that uses a computer to announce weight. When he stepped on it recently, did the computer voice say “I need your weight, not your phone number?” As for Peter W., his head has gotten so bug that when he showers, “lather, rinse, and repeat” is not an option. Rest assured, though, that he is solving Pittsfield’s “houseless” problem.

— Three 16-year old shot and killed, another routine day in Bed-Sty, NY, NY, and the official response: “How many more kids have to die before they change the laws?” Answer: ZEE-Row.  Laws and “programs,” do nothing more than provide con jobs and snow jobs.

— Isn’t the drive-by method of execution, favored by teens and young men, well-established in “vibrant, dynamic” Pittsfield? At least we have “The Pittsfield Special.” That’s when the dude fires from the hood of a moving car.

— Headline: “Man released from jail, breaks off GPS, Kills Girlfriend, Police say.” Yeah, but doesn’t it seem that most of these situation involve POC?

— Did Jumpin’ Joe Curtis wrenched his back pretzeling into his rationale for the THS catfight filmed in the school’s front lobby?  Do these “scuffles” aways involve a POC or do we need to adjust the tint on the Color TV?

— Why is it that whenever one of these idiots kills or gets killed, they were always “turning their lives around?” They were also “smart, beautiful, loving and anyone who knew her knew how big her heart was, how full of life she was and how much she loved her family but most especially her son who was her entire life, pride and joy.”

— Did Helen Moon get pulled over by the Pittsfield police at gunpoint then jailed? Nope. Just another mirage.

— Is Helen Moon is a victim? Be kind when you see her.

— Is this phrase a punch line: “Yuki Cohen bar dancing.” If so, what’s the joke?

Sunday we have a date in Foxboro to watch the GOAT and Gronk return to Gillette to face the 20-year dynasty they helped build. Talk about mixed emotions. Either way, we can’t lose! The irony is that his 7th Super Bowl championship validated The Belichick Way. Brady had Bruce Arians install Bill’s New England offense last year. Yes, Tommy’s that B-I-G.

Have a great weekend, everybody!

The local politicians would like nothing better than for Planet Valenti to end. It would be fewer voices speaking the truth that they would have to deal with. Fewer blogs on busy weeks? More guest bloggers on Planet Valenti? We all need to keep the Planet alive and well.

Many healthcare workers have natural immunity to COVID since so many of them got it while working closely with infected patients before we had any vaccines. Why do they need to lose their jobs if they have already had it, they don’t need a vaccine. First, our healthcare workers are heroes, but now we make them into villains if they don’t get the vaccine. It’s easy to find out if they have already had COVID since they had a COVID test done at some point telling them they had it.
No politicians that I know of died from COVID except Herman Cain and that’s only because he waited too long before getting the monoclonal antibodies which would have been readily available to him as a politician. Politicians and their families received the best treatments available. Treatments that were not available to the general public in 2020. The monoclonal antibodies were only approved for public use weeks after the presidential election.

The jab is still not phase III approved, it’s emergency approval.

More people died last month from the jab than covid itself, per CDC. MSM ignores that. Jabbed people carry > 200 the viral load once infected, as the “vaccine” is not effective, in effect becoming “super spreaders”.

Why push the jab if natural immunity is better? Jab-nazis are pushing it on people who have already recovered! Is that “science”?

“Not sure why the anti vaccine folks don’t push for antibody tests, maybe that is too much science.”

Many people caught the Kung Flu and were asymptomatic. The “jabbers” don’t want to test the unjabbed, they just want to jab regardless of the consequences or science.

Unless the 700k dead were really abducted bu Elon Musk to colonize Mars more people died of Covid than the vaccine by an order of magnitude.

That today more people dead of the vaccine – if even true and ai doubt it – seems like another argument for vaccines. I know more than one anti vax who was happy to fight their cancer with chemotherapy which is not natural in any format. The vaccine is why as a society and world we aren’t entering an economic dark ages for generations.

Right wing or left wing anti vax is a traitorous(to use your fav word) sabotaging cult – I guess the powers that be should be worried about domestic terrorism as these sentiments are about as informed as what is coming from the Taliban, and just as productive for overthrowing a US value system.

I wonder what the propagandists want to achieve? I guess they have a docile and ignorant base. We are apparently in a cold civil war.

These are a collection of the stupidest sentiments I have heard in my life, adios

“1) “Hospitals Should Hire, Not Fire, Nurses with Natural Immunity
“Another goal should be to employ staff with the strongest possible immunity against Covid, as they are less likely to catch it and spread it to their patients. This means that hospitals and nursing homes should actively seek to hire staff that have natural immunity from prior Covid disease and use such staff for their most vulnerable patients. ”

“2) The press and the media have no right to dictate the practice of medicine. No right to coerce nor intimidate patients. No right to employ propaganda to advance economic interests of pharmaceutical industry. We must insist this stop immediately”

“I’ve worked over 30 years on medical policy”…

do you even have a science degree? yet You travel the country calling people who have had covid , looked at studies of millions of people and made their own personal decisions that their own natural immunity is sufficient. But you presume somehow to tell over 100 million Americans, who survived covid, that we have no right to determine our own medical care.

You alone are high on a Lawyer with no scientific back ground, no medical degree. This is an arrogance coupled with an authoritarianism that is unseemly and un-American. You sir are the one ignoring science. The vast preponderance of scientific studies, dozens and dozens, show robust long lasting immunity after covid infection……”

Chrome Dome Adam Hinds will soon announce his decision to step down from the Massachusetts State Senate to run for Massachusetts Lieutenant Governor in 2022. Redistricting maps expected to reduce the useless Berkshire legislative delegation to Beacon Hill from 4 do nothing State Representatives to 3 State Representatives. Paul Mark (“Marx”) will run for Chrome Dome’s State Senate seat in 2022, as well as (N_c_f_r0) who had to step down from the post in 2006 due to him being in bed with Boston’s big banks and insurance companies back then. That leaves North Adams State Representative John Barrett III (aka “The Mayor”), Pittsfield State Representative Tricia Farley Bouvier (aka “Trippy Country Buffet”), and Lenox State Representative William “Smitty” Pignatelli (aka “Shitty”) left to supposedly represent the beautiful Berkshires in Beacon Hill in 2023 – 2024. “K Street PAC Man” Richie Neal will run for his 18th (or “1,001”) term in U.S. Congress. In closing, the people and taxpayers of Berkshire County have NOBODY representing them in Boston and in the Swamp!

These politicians – Ed “Maryland” Markey, Elizabeth “Main Street” Warren, “K Street PAC Man” Richie Neal, Chrome Dome Adam Hinds, Paul Mark (Marx), Smitty Pignatelli (Shitty), Tricia Farley Bouvier (Trippy Country Buffet), John Barrett III (“The Mayor”), and “Level 5” Linda “Gated Community” Tyer are all ridiculous because they are totally disconnected from the people and taxpayers who live in the beautiful Berkshires. In 2020, Senator Ed Markey promised to save the world from global warming, but all he does is emit hot air in the Swamp. Senator Elizabeth Warren always promises to fight for Main Street, but Wall Street is still receiving all of the gains in income – same as always – The Rich get richer and the Poor get poorer! Congressman Richie Neal only represents K Street corporate lobbyist firms. State Senator Adam Hinds’ first vote in Boston was for his own 40 percent legislative pay raise, while he openly wants to raise state taxes. State Rep Paul Mark wants to be the 21st Century version of Karl Marx. State Rep Tricia Farley Bouvier represents post industrial Pittsfield, but she only fights for Boston’s progressive causes. State Rep Smitty Pignatelli wants to put GE’s third Berkshire County toxic waste dump in Lee (Massachusetts) against the wishes of the people who live there. State Rep John Barrett III has made being a career politician into a fine art. Mayor Linda Tyer lives in her millionaires-only gated community, while defending inner city Pittsfield’s Level 5 public schools. In closing, it would be wonderful to see Smitty Pignatelli get redistricted out of his 20-year elected post in Boston, but he will do anything to remain in the public trough.

So now Curtis needs a “consultant” to determine whether resource officers are needed in the schools.

Which leads to the question, “has an alien abducted Curtis’s brain?”

He’s too busy analyzing his data and avoiding accountability for the lack of discipline in the schools. Put a full-time resource officer in each middle & high school, for starters!

Maybe we need a consultant to see if we need a superintendent

But seriously, shouldn’t that be HIS job? What the hell do we pay him for if he can’t determine that? Is there information a consultant can get that one else can get? And what about the school committee? Should they not make such decisions? Looks like no one wants to take any responsibility here.
But it is Pittsfield. While they are putting out a search for a consultant 100 more kids parents will opt their kid out to another town. How embarrassing for the mayor that they would have to hire outside help for a school system with a 67 MILLION dollar budget, assistants to assistants to assistants and yet consistently fails at almost every level.

Now I understand why Curtis was backed so strongly by the Mayor who is a member of the School Committee. He will abide by her rule to hide or cover-up any unrest in the Tyerville School System. Just like she orders the PPD to hide and cover-up the City’s out of control crime. After all we are a Dynamic and Vibrant city and none of us should voice our objections about the lies and deception from this Administration. For Curtis to state that anyone that video’s an issue in the failing Tyerville public schools will have an automatic 5 day suspension. Guess the school system no longer believes in freedom of speech. Wonder what the PPS students are learning. In most cities you would hear from the Mayor on an issue like this, not in Tyerville, our Mayor has been unreachable and locked in her corner office at City Hall for over 5 years. I also heard that there has yet to be a full week of classes since the start in September. Wonder what these teachers are being trained on during these days off?

There is a stand out being held at Park Square this evening from 4:30 to 6:00 to Support Safe Schools and Support Resource Officers in our schools if anyone is interested.

“Well, I clarify the expectations in my letter and video overview that any student that films such a heinous act, and then certainly publicizes it in social media and other locations will face initially up to five days suspension. Quite honestly, I consider the filming and promoting of such an event publicly very serious.”

Not to mention Wrong Way. As the Chief Law Enforcement Officer in the county, she should be advising Curtis that he legally cannot suspend a student for exercising their freedom of speech.

Didn’t Maxine Waters encourage violence and destruction as a “peaceful exercise” for BLM’s freedom of speech?

So filming an out of control zoo….I mean school, shouldn’t be in the same ballpark.

Wrong Way? How about weighing in on a real issue, instead of a foolish photo-op?

You would be wrong about that. Plenty of case law, including SCOTUS cases, students during school activities, during school hours, and or on school property have a lower set of rights.

On the subject of “gun control”, use both hands!

https://www.ccrkba.org/fbi-report-says-armed-citizens-killed-more-criminals-than-police-ccrkba/

“We looked at Tables 14 and 15 in the FBI’s new report that apply to justifiable homicides by law enforcement and private citizens, respectively,” noted CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “Last year, according to the data, armed citizens killed 343 criminals during the commission of a felony while police fatally shot 298 felons.
 “If the FBI data published in their crime report for 2020 is accurate,” he continued, “it is ample evidence that the individual right to keep and bear arms for personal defense is as important today as it was when the Second Amendment was adopted as a cornerstone of the Bill of Rights.
“The use of deadly force is not something anybody wants,” Gottlieb observed, “but neither is being injured or killed by some thug during a violent criminal attack. Self-defense may be the oldest natural right, and every time we hear some politician, public official or gun control extremist call for citizen disarmament, we have to wonder which side they’re on. It certainly can’t be on the side of public safety.
“Gun prohibitionists who enjoy their own private security while promoting restrictive laws that take guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens are world-class hypocrites,” he said. “The same people who want to disarm honest citizens are typically those who support policies that are soft on criminals. They haven’t simply lost perspective; they’ve abandoned common sense.”

The superintendent outlined a punishment system more severe than the one listed in the high school student handbooks. He said that students involved in fights at school “will be suspended for up to ten days, or if warranted, a long-term suspension of 45 or 60 days” and the district might contact Pittsfield Police and file charges.

Curtis clarified Wednesday that the extended suspension will only be used if there are consistent behavioral issues with a student. He added that any student who films a fight will receive up to five days of school suspension.

Fighting is considered a “level 3 behavior” in Taconic High School’s student handbook, as one of several “violent or dangerous behavior violations that seriously jeopardize school and classroom safety and order.” The 2021-2022 handbook states that offenses like fighting will result in either in-school or short-term out-of-school suspension of up to five days. Recording and distributing images of another person without their consent is level 3 behavior as well.

The reason school resource officers are not in school anymore, is because of “woke” (lying) fools like Helen Moon. Remember, she felt children of color get “scared” or “intimidated,” when they see an officer in school?

That just goes against common sense. First, how many school shootings have been prevented by a student alerting an SRO? Second, unless a student is up to nefarious activities, he/she should have zero fear of an SRO. SRO’s do not “actively patrol” their schools looking for kids of color running in the hall, to lock them up. And lastly, if an elementary school child has been indoctrinated into “cops are bad,” who do they turn to when a child predator targets them? Their absentee father?

In true ram style, Nance Pelosi is an Aries, Pelosi will try to push through a massive spending bill that most Americans don’t want, but that they also don’t know all of what is in it and that’s intentional. Just what we have seen of it is frightening especially the banking oversight of all Americans who dare to put $600.00 or more dollars into their banking account at one time. The weaponizing of the IRS. The changeover to electric cars which is in the bill for government workers only since the vehicles are so expensive even they can’t afford them. Americans will have no voice on any of this.

Did Chucky, Nance, and Joe intentionally push their spending bill up to 3.5 trillion knowing they wouldn’t get it, but secretly happy if they get less? The squad wanted that much, but I think it was a trick all along by Nancy and pals to ask for more than they wanted. One trillion is also a ridiculous amount of money and I don’t think they should get that either.

You would think after elevating people with trillions over the last 40-50 years we would have much more to show for the money. Hell, they could have reached space altitude elevation by now. And our education system that also soaked up trillions over the last 20 -25 years alone for some students to be babysat is a waste and takes away from those students who want to learn. Our government has no problem with students going to Handout U to get there education and in some cases where the parents went.

Harrington is non stop on public radio promoting Andrea’s House of Smack. It comes with a free triple side of lies: Voters want it, it works elsewhere, no ownership for 40% rise in overdoses as a result of dealers running rampant in the Berkshires.

Is there going to be a help wanted add for someone that wants to help junkies get their fixes? And what would the qualifications for such a position be?
What do you do if your junkie patient is not happy with you regulating his dose size? Will there need to be a law enforcement officer standing by? How about an emergency technician? How many times a day can the same junkie come in to get his fix and what if he is hungry or needs to take a shit? What if he has no place to live? Do you give him his fix and send him on his way, because that would be kind of rude. If you care enough about him to give him dope you should care enough about him that he has a nice warm meal and a bed to sleep in. And what if the junkie shows up with her baby? Will there be someone to watch the little tyke while his mom gets a supervised shot?

And if you hire an ex junkie for the job are you worried that he might fall off the wagon? What if a junkie gets an infection from the needle? Does free health care charged to the city come into play? Could Andrea work for the first week giving the shots and do it on live TV so those of us who do not understand the logic can be edumacated in the reasoning?

SB: I shan’t disappoint those who want an honest and professional approach to governance (following MGL, Charter, and respect the desires of the Ward.)

From,my Platform:
The North Street Bike Lanes: the face of municipal waste and incompetence.”

There is a difference btw being against the bike layout, which is politically easy and simple, and the being against the methods used to produce that plan, continuing to roll them down Tyler St, and then explain away the waste, which challenges the political structures touching the City budget which will require grassroot support to sustain.

My opposition to bike lanes is not just the concrete facts – bad enough – but is focused upon the misuse of tax dollars, aka ‘grants’ and utter incompetence combined with disrespect.

Could I be any clearer?

Ivar, would you advocate for changing the charter in a coule of ways? Two changes have clearly backfired on the public AS THEY WERE DESIGNED TO DO. One is the CPA tax which is often used for special interest benefit. The other is the 4 year mayoral term. Clearly, with the type of people we wind up with for mayor, a four year term adds insult to injury in Pittsfield.

Spoiler Alert: I support a forensic audit!

A forensic audit cannot be done by the City for obvious reasons – we currently conduct annual audits.

I would think that a forensic audit done independently of Western Mass (ending at Boston :-/ ) would be a great idea.

How to do it will require research which I have not yet done, and is something I am wanting to do.

Pardon my brevity; my time is devoted to haunting our Ward 2 neighborhoods. It’s amazing how long it takes to walk such a small piece of the City.

Charles, the problem you’re going to have is because of the millions in cash on hand now, all of the well healed and not so well healed will get thiers. You will come off as an obstructionist if you micromanage every proposal,good or bad. The other point, you very well will be outnumbered when voting. It’s usually 8- 3.

I think our major challenges like crime, business climate,and parking along with bike paths are important enough to seclude much of your time as a ward councilor. You just won’t have enough time in the day to keep your eyes on the hen house, You have my vote though. I agree with the above poster that four year terms for has to go. If the past five years hasn’t proved that nothing will.

Junkies are manipulative deceitful malicious vile scum! As for a junkie mom showing up for her nipples harrington taxpayer funded safe injection of illegal heroin, the junkie mom will have probably already sold out her baby for her illegal drugs to some other manipulating deceitful vile monster. Or just as horrifying, DCF monsters have will sentenced the junkie mom’s innocent baby to the deadly negligence of two 600 pound behemoth DCF certified foster parents for a deadly over dose of supervised neglect. Also, what if junkies like their illegal heroin mixed with fentanyl, will nipples harrington provide this illegal concoction for her junkie fans?

DA Harrington’s organized supervised shooting gallery is a sucker punch to every parent who has lost their adult child to drugs, or some other monster. Every lost child who made friends with evil, and was dragged into the darkness. Harrington’s motives for enabling sick junkies is as vile and immoral as the motives of drug cartels. Does nipples harrington also advocate hosting keg parties at her home for her two minor son’s and their minor friends, BECAUSE KIDS ARE GOING TO DRINK ANYWAY, better they do it at the respectable home of nipples harrington, the COOL DA! Of course, being the responsible COOL MOM, nipples will insist that all the underage neighborhood party goers turn their car keys over to her, the responsible adult DA enabling underage drinking, so none of them wrap their cars around a tree and kill themselves on their way home.

In this instance, “Mr. White, who is college educated, gainfully employed, and was wearing designer clothes, at the time of arrest. District Attorney Wrong Way’s Office, will not tolerate white males flaunting the law. Her office prosecutes them to the fullest extent of the law.

Don’t believe us, ask Lonnie Durfee. He committed a non-violent, crime, and the DA punished him to the fullest extent of the law. Something her office prides on not doing. Producing felons from non-violent offenses. That’s Progressive DA’ing.”.….I mean, get rid of that second to last sentence.

You should offfer one just to get the feedback. Ask each candidate, “would you commit to a debate hosted by me using my rules, dates and times?” And if they cannot or will not, have them give their reasons (excuses, lies, bullshit)
Not likely you would ever have to hold it because at least 9 of them would be ducking for cover. Plus, the mayor would never give their woosiie asses permission and they do not have the self esteem to do it on their own. They have sold their souls and dignity to someone who is using them.

Pittsfield must have been celebrating the start of October last night because there was loud bangs echoing throughout the night. Also decided to start the day reading the hate rag and they didn’t disappoint, still have their blinders on and blaming the Republicans for the mess this country has become since January. They neglect to see or understand the Democrats have been running the country since January. So I think people should be able to see who really is the problem. Just read a great article on the shadows of government and how the swamp creatures were blocking Trump’s agenda from the start. I wish they would do the same with the current office holder. Just wondering how bad things are really going to get before the voters realize who is responsible for this mess. Hopefully they don’t pass this $7 trillion + bill they are trying to cram through our children and all their kids and grand kids will be taxed to death forever

Biden took no questions after his failed attempts at getting his expensive bills passed yesterday, but reporters yelling out stupid questions like, “When will you get this done?” Like there is nothing more that the American people want than these overpriced bills that will break the country. Making it sound like the American people want this so urgently. These far left reporters also asking, “Why can’t you reach an agreement?” ignoring the divisions that exist even in the Democratic party about these bills which nobody has bothered to tell Americans what is in them except for what Republicans are telling us. The far left doesn’t want us to know everything that’s in them and the far left reporters could care less. Just get it passed because it’s Democrats pushing it forward and that’s all the American people need to know.

DA Harrington just tried to let 2 drug trafficker go without bail. Judge Tyne was not having it. The only things standing between victims of drug overdose deaths and their predatory dealers are our police and judges – not the DA.

PITTSFIELD — Police busted what they called a “base of operations” for drug sales on First and Orchard streets in Pittsfield. One man was in a coma after police say he swallowed “his supply” of crack cocaine.
Donald Jennings, 31, of New York City, was taken to the hospital after a brief foot chase Thursday with police. At the hospital, Jennings spit out a “large baggie” containing about 36 grams of crack cocaine. Sources said he remained in a medically induced coma as of Friday.

In court documents, investigators called Mark J. Jessamy’s Orchard Street apartment in Pittsfield a “stash house” for narcotics sales. Officers with a warrant to search the apartment found a gun tucked in a couch and cash in a bedroom.

Mark J. Jessamy, 30, of 53½ Orchard St., Apt. 1, Pittsfield, was the target of the drug investigation, according to police statements contained in court records. Police arrested Jessamy first, at the Alltown convenience store at Tyler and First streets. 
The police report said Jessamy had 294 glassine bags, each of which contained heroin, and more than 32 grams of what police believed to be crack cocaine. 
Minutes later, police with warrants moved to search Apartment 1 at 241 First St., and two men fled from the front door: Jennings and Michael Williams, 28, of 28 Robbins Ave., Pittsfield, according to police.
Police chased Williams to Lincoln Street, and police allege that they caught him with nearly 19 grams of cocaine.
Officers caught Jennings as he tried to hop a fence on Orchard Street. Police saw white powder on Jennings’ lips and heard him chewing, but he refused to spit out what he was chewing, according to their report. Police suspected that he had tried to eat illicit drugs and called for an ambulance. 
Jennings had three cellphones, $1,541 in cash and a set of keys on him at the time, police said. Jennings faces a cocaine trafficking charge. His arraignment is pending in Central Berkshire District Court.
In court documents, investigators called Jessamy’s Orchard Street apartment a “stash house” for narcotics sales. Officers with a warrant to search the apartment found a gun tucked in a couch and cash in a bedroom.   
At the apartment on First Street, police listed having found sandwich bags, digital scales and a bag of “powder substance.”
On Friday, Jessamy pleaded not guilty to charges of trafficking between 18 and 36 grams of cocaine, possession of a Class A drug with intent to distribute, firearm and ammunition possession without an FID card, improper firearm storage and possessing a firearm while committing a felony. 
Williams pleaded not guilty to a charge of cocaine possession with intent to distribute. 
The Berkshire District Attorney’s Office did not request cash bail. Williams was released on personal recognizance and is due back in court Nov. 16.  
The Berkshire District Attorney’s Office also did not request cash bail for Jessamy, the target of the investigation. So, Judge Jennifer Tyne ordered him held on $25,000 cash bail.
As the basis for ordering bail absent a request from the District Attorney’s Office, Tyne cited Jessamy’s ties to family in the Bronx, his financial resources, the nature of the offenses and the potential penalties they carry.

A petition to have this issue addressed by the PPD was submitted, but as usual it is caught up in the CC bureaucratic spin class. Witnessed the PPD just FINALLY pull over one of these motorcyclist. Thought FINALLY, we can have some peace. NOPE, the officer just chatted and laughed along with the motorcyclist and just let them go. Unbelievable, once again it shows that taxpayers no longer matter in this City. So what does this law breaking motorcyclist have that us hardworking taxpayers don’t?

“Whenever there’s a private vendor involved in government services, I’m suspicious of it,” said state Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier, D-Pittsfield, who co-sponsored the bill. “I think that system is a bad one, and I think people should have access to be able to talk to their families.

“ A black woman was arrested in Georgia after allegedly posing as a member of the Ku Klux Klan and placing racially charged messages in her neighbors’ mailboxes, threatening to burn down their homes and kill them, according to law enforcement.

Terresha Lucas, 30, of the Atlanta suburb of Douglasville, was charged with eight counts of making terroristic threats after leaving violent, hateful notes in which she claimed to be a white member of the hate group, with a long red beard who did not live in the neighborhood.”

https://www.cbs46.com/news/metro-atlanta-neighborhood-shaken-up-after-receiving-threatening-racial-letters/article_1a7a3fe0-7d09-11eb-958e-af95cfab9739.html

The letter is using the N-word, talking about the KKK, hanging people, killing kids, killing whole families, and setting houses on fire,” a concerned father who received a letter told local news.

“The notes threatened to burn their houses down and kill them and said that they didn’t belong in the neighborhood,” DPD detective Nathan Shumaker confirmed in a statement last week.

“Similar notes — all left in the middle of the night — were found in the residents’ mailboxes on Feb. 17, Feb. 22, March 1 and March 3, police said. At least seven black residents reported receiving such notes, but police believe there were likely more.”
