PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

ADD TUESDAY 7/19 P.M. — We have this from the Pittsfield Police Department on last night’s shooting:

On Tuesday July 19th 2022 at approximately 12:25 am, members of the Pittsfield Police Department (PPD) responded to the area of Pleasant Street for a ShotSpotter activation indicating multiple rounds.  Responding officers arrived on scene and located a victim who had been shot.  A home had also been struck by gunfire and officers located additional ballistic evidence on scene.   

The victim, a juvenile male who is a resident of Pittsfield, was transported to Berkshire Medical Center (BMC) for treatment.  At this time his wounds are not considered to be life threatening.   

Anyone who wishes to provide information regarding this incident is asked to contact Detective Murphy at 448-9700 x582.  Information can also be provided anonymously via the Detective Bureau Tip Line at 413-448-9706, or by texting PITTIP and your message to TIP411 (847411).

———- ooo ———-

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, MONDAY JULY 17, 2022) — If THE PLANET‘s city hall sources have been spilling. You know what they say: Where there’s smoke, there’s Charlton Heston.

Cha-cha-cha-changes are on the way. Brace yourself.

In an amazing week in foraging, THE PLANET can confirm three shockers. Bet the house on it:

  1. Linda Tyer will NOT seek a third term as mayor.
  2. Police chief Mike Wynn WILL retire at the end of 2023 or thereabout,  coinciding with Tyer leaving office.
  3. Former Ward 6 city councilor John Krol WILL be running for mayor in 2023.
  4. Council president Pete Marchetti WILL quit politics.

Expect the usual denials, the no comments, then laugh at them. These three items, barring an act of The Great Ju-Ju Who Lives Beneath Silver Lake, WILL occur. We have sources, and we aren’t afraid to follow promising leads, which is just what we’ve been doing.

———- ooo ———–

At the same time, some insiders are claiming there’s “trouble” brewing, claiming there’s a bitter fight raging behind closed doors between the mayor and council president Peter Marchetti.

Don’t buy this inflatable doll. Tyer’s a goner, and so is Marchetti. In Linda’s case, it going to be a quiet resignation, slipping out of town on the midnight train to Georgia (only it’s not Georgia) with as much dignity as she can scrounge and salvage. It’s dawned on her that she’s been duped and used and has wasted four years, a quad annum that set the city back irreparably, perhaps to fatality. In Pete’s case, he’s about to finally do something he should have done a long time ago: Get out of politics, stop trying to please people, and focus on his own well being.

The  fable claiming a Tyer-Marchetti feud wants us to believe Marchetti wants to run for mayor, and he’s miffed that Tyer hasn’t declared her intentions for 2023. Story goes that if Tyer admits she’s not running, it clears the decks for Marchetti.

We’re not buying it.

———- ooo ———-

First off, IF that’s true (our information and  instincts tell us it’s not), then once again Marchetti is behaving in the reactive, “I’m-running-but-I don’t REALLY-want-to-win mode” that cost him his narrow loss to Dan Bianchi in 2015. By all assumptive indicators, Pete should have won. He had a history of winning citywide office (at-large) as the top vote getter. Against Bianchi, Marchetti suffered from a self-imposed, tortuous dilemma: “Deepest down, I don’t want to run, but I’m afraid to disappoint the one who’s making me do it.”

And who might that be? His husband, the late Jeff Hunt, the driving force of blind ambition that propelled Marchetti into “mayoral mode.” Hunt was Marchetti’s Lady McBeth.  That explains how Pete snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. He subconsciously WANTED to lose.

That loss, however, provided him with a great revelation: He doesn’t want the job after all. He doesn’t even want to run for council. What does he want? He wants what we all want — happiness and peace of mind. It took the death of the troubled Hunt on Feb. 18  to give Marchetti a new lease on life–not his political life but his personal life. Hunt’s death gave Peter a freedom he hasn’t known.

Marchetti now has a new boyfriend. The two were spotted the night before the July 4th parade, walking the parade route, and, according to one witness, Pete looked like a guy in the first stages of love. He’s done with politics.

If for some reason he caves to outside pressures again, he will win office again but doom himself. Here’s hoping that Pete finally does the right thing by Pete. We want him to leave the creeps behind into their cesspool and to finally live his life. THE PLANET wishes him all the best. He deserves it.

———- ooo ———-

To conclude:

  1. Tyer won’t seek re-election.
  2. Wynn will retire. He has already told his troops.
  3. Krol will run for mayor.
  4. Marchetti will quit politics.

There’s also a 5.

Our bookies put the odds at 52-48. We won’t spill it at this moment. Romance is typically not our department.

Strang things  happening.

The cow jumped over Handgun Moon, and the dish ran away with the spoon.

Clip these predictions. See how accurate we are on Inauguration Day in early January, 2024.

Pittsfield politics was fortunate to have the Lovely Linda Tyer as its Mayor for the following reasons: (a) She is nobody’s fool. She knows what she is doing and what the corrupt big shots in Boston are doing for and against Pittsfield. Unlike all of the past failed Mayors of Pittsfield, the Lovely Linda understands what is going on in terms of state and local public management. (b) She stands for Human Rights and Democracy in a time of extremist politics. I have followed the Lovely Linda’s political career for 2 decades now, and she was always an idealist in government, which is a double edge sword when dealing with all of the weasels out there. (c) She cares about the poor people and distressed neighborhoods that have been neglected by City Hall for generations. (d) She made an effort to stabilize the city’s long troubled municipal finances, despite all of the secrecy in her public spending on substandard city services and Pittsfield’s Level 5 public school district. (e) She believed in Pittsfield at a time when most people threw in the proverbial towel and gave up on the city’s decay that has been exhibited over the years in upscale art galleries and museums in London, U.K., NYC and L.A. (f) She knows all about Pittsfield’s socioeconomic issues and problems, despite her shying away from commenting on them by her saying she is unaware of the situation(s). (g) She bettered herself in her adult life in Pittsfield, which is an almost impossible feat for anyone who doesn’t inherit a large amount of money or win the state lottery jackpot. (h) She knows her time in Pittsfield politics is coming to an end soon, which may be the best thing to ever happen to her in her lifetime. (i) She will receive a near 6-figure public pension plus perks for the rest of her life, which sounds like a wonderful retirement. (j) She will be able to leave Pittsfield behind her in the near future like so many thousands of people and families have done over the past 50 years. Thank you, Lovely Linda Tyer, for your 20-plus year career in Pittsfield politics! Good luck to you in your retirement.

Marchetti sold out his city including all the women AND CHILDREN. If he finds happiness I hope it is far from Pittsfield.
Wynn will not leave before Tyer appoints a new gob friendly puppet that can be controlled. No room for independent thinking department heads in Pittsfield.
Krol will be Tyer resurrected only more annoying to listen to. One more power happy self serving ego driven politician whose agenda will be set and driven by the hidden power structure, as opposed to the people who may vote for him. And he will have a huge edge on any opponent because he will have huge gob money backing him as well as the unions who vote as instructed. His first campaign promise will be tax control, because he knows it has been crippling to Pittsfield residents, and it will be his first and biggest lie.
I will not miss Tyer, Marchetti or Wynn one bit but I do not see the good old boys allowing anyone with visions of controlling this budget to get elected.

I think Linda checked out of the corner office months ago. The city is a mess – North St has been destroyed along with Tyler St., crime is rampant and the school system has been sucked into the abyss. The hard-working taxpayer has been forgotten. ARPA money handed out to political allies.

Why is it that people who can’t hold private sector jobs run for political office? Money, perks, prestige, power. Krol is not the answer. He supported both Linda and Andrea. He was a City Council rubber-stamper. Failed husband, liberal spender. He won’t get my vote.

I agree on Krol definitely not the answer. He is the anti-answer. He will be adding gasoline to the fire.

But also, although some roads are being paved over there are many more falling apart that are not on the short list. For every road that will be better there will be five others that are coming apart. They were neglected far too long as apparently no one was paying attention. This mayor has been preoccupied with building shiny new things instead of taking care of essential infrastructure. And now she is bedazzled by the concept of a new stadium. Wonder who put that idea in her head. You can be sure the local paper will be supporting it one hundred percent.
So just how much borrowing has and will take place before she bails town and how much further down the rabbit hole will this debt take the taxpayers? Which banks are holding this borrowing and how much interest do taxpayers pay each year to these banks on this debt? Could Mr Kronick ask Mr Kerwood and get a straight answer?

Who is lying still about being a “Death row attorney?” The one who commited the ethical violation of blocking the release of public records and lied about it and got away with it? No really, the Krol who wrote “Andrea is someone who you can look in the eye and trust the words you hear?” Andrea is “someone who we will be proud to call our district attorney?” You just cannot be serious, man.

I hope during the debates, Shugrue brings up the Simon Rock College, Jussie Smollett incident. I would love to watch Tim question DA Wrong Way, why no charges were ever brought against the black female and watch her squirm and then launch into some BS “racial disparity in the CJ field.”

Besides the above example, we all know in Andrea’s world, being black is a free pass to commit crimes and get away with it. Cases in point: JC Chadwell (murder) and LaQuan Johnson (weapons/drugs).

Unless you are twenty years old and going to live to one hundred, it is too late.

Get out before you get sucked down the Pittsfield drain, and I ain’t even joking here. Why do you think barry and co. are putting down roots elsewhere? They know this city is rotting from the head down and is already at the knees. And they have an eagle eyes view with inside info on the gang proliferation, crime escalation, burgeoning city debt and crumbling infrastructure (roads and bridges).
I saw a post on another site saying that there is now a horde of street beggars in the city who are organized. They have a leader who assigns spots and rotates personnel. Not sure if they are local or from the big city but Pittsfield has become a beggars paradise. I do not remember seeing even one before Tyer stomped into office and promised to make the city a destination. She unfortunately did not tell us who her destination was for.

And in other news- If Tim Shugrue doesn’t start campaining like the election is tomorrow (fee advice Dan stated many moons ago), he runs the danger of getting beat like Pauly did in primary, and in this case, that’s it. Paul and Tim are both compassionate, comptetent, law and order nice guys, but Paul should have campainged, and Timmy better, like a bull let loose at the county fair. Come on Tim, we need you. We cannot suffer 4 more years of Hardly Harrington. You need to put the boxing gloves on and take it to her, biggly. Remember, she is a woke female, which autmatically gives her a huge advantage in these parts – most women will vote for her just for that reason alone. Wake up man, and come out swinging.

Here is possibly one reason why. Unless Shurgrue runs in the primary as the Democrat that he is Harrington will try to say he is a Republican. In the last election she and her supporters deliberately mislead voters. They put our campaign materials that said her opponent was registered as a Republican and had the support of the Republican party. Evidence of that dispicable campaign was posted on this blog. Now it seems Harrington is attempting to mislead voters into believing she has support from fellow Democrats by hosting events, walks, posting pics etc. Speaking of pics, it looks like the folks at Balderdash Cellars in Richmond are a Shurgue fan.They hosted a big event this weekend with Berkshire Comfort Dogs. Dogs for Shurgrue!

Not convinced. People want a new DA and he could run independently. People also would understand that he wants a November ballot which will not happen if the primary chooses.

Bad move in my opinion. The organized camp has the upper hand in the primary, and Harrington is organized.

You are quite delusional.

Oh yeah Nipples dropped the ball, again!

Lt. Glen Decker, who retired from the Pittsfield Police Department in 2020, defended the police investigation in an interview with The Eagle. He alleged police arrested the correct man for Henry’s killing, but said the prosecution fell short at trial.

“Why the DA’s office didn’t put us on the stand is beyond me,” said Decker, referring to himself and Lt. David Kirchner, who also investigated the homicide.

Decker said evidence police gathered against Chadwell was “overwhelming,” but said many pieces of the puzzle were not introduced to jurors at trial, for reasons he didn’t understand.

So it’s either incompetence or willful nullification by the DA’s office. Present a case so flawed, on purpose, the guy gets off. Nipples always wants a win for the criminals.

Any chance Shirley could use some of that $1,000,000 ARPA and convince POC from not shooting and killing each other?

She’s been a “cultural proficiency coach” for going on 5 years now. Hasn’t the “indoctrinate white kids experiment” that they are racist, unless they conform to Shirley’s own racist views, proven to not have worked?

Gun violence and murder amongst POC is at record levels in Pittsfield and beyond. How about putting that money to real use. Not some horsesh!t study, that shows Shirley, Warren, and crew, need more taxpayer paid and financed “black everything.”

Sorry about the lengthy post.

Not guilty, but……

From the Berkshire Eagle
Amanda Burke. 7/19/22

Jurors say evidence wasn’t there to convict J.C. Chadwell of murder. A retired Pittsfield police lieutenant says that evidence existed.

PITTSFIELD — Jurors who voted to acquit J.C. Chadwell of murder in late June tell The Berkshire Eagle that prosecutors didn’t produce enough evidence to prove he killed Paul Henry. But a retired police official says prosecutors could have done more to prove what he sees as a solid case.
After initially maintaining he shot Paul Henry in self-defense at a block party July 4, 2017, Chadwell took the stand at his trial late last month, and reversed course.
He said his confession had been false, coerced under duress and motivated by a brotherly urge to protect his sister and by fear of the man he claimed actually pulled the trigger.

The Berkshire District Attorney’s Office did not call any witnesses to rebut Chadwell’s story, incensing one of the lead investigators on the murder case Lt. Glen Decker, who retired from the Pittsfield Police Department in 2020, defended the police investigation in an interview with The Eagle. He alleged police arrested the correct man for Henry’s killing, but said the prosecution fell short at trial.
“Why the DA’s office didn’t put us on the stand is beyond me,” said Decker, referring to himself and Lt. David Kirchner, who also investigated the homicide.
Despite the jury’s verdict June 29, clearing Chadwell of responsibility in Henry’s death, both Decker and the Berkshire DA’s office say they believe he fired the fatal shot. Chadwell claimed another man killed Henry.

“The trial team presented all admissible and credible evidence that the Pittsfield Police Department obtained during its investigation. While we respect the jury’s verdict, this office stands by the case it presented at trial, alleging that J.C. Chadwell murdered Mr. Henry,” a spokesman for the office of Berkshire DA Andrea Harrington said, when asked to comment on Decker’s statements.
“We send our condolences to the Henry family for their loss,” he said.
Decker said the verdict represented a denial of justice to Henry’s family, whose members sat in the courtroom throughout the trial late last month.
“They didn’t get any justice with this case. And it was disgusting,” Decker said of the Henry family.
To Decker, the trial represented a failure of the current DA’s office.

“They should have got a quick conviction,” Decker said. “That’s how much overwhelming evidence they had in this case.”
‘Overwhelming’ evidence
Decker said evidence police gathered against Chadwell was “overwhelming,” but said many pieces of the puzzle were not introduced to jurors at trial, for reasons he didn’t understand.

For example, he said police had a witness to the shooting who would have testified that they saw Chadwell and Henry facing each other, then heard a gunshot, and saw Henry grab his stomach and drop to the ground.
The witness said they saw smoke near Chadwell, who then ran from the scene, Decker said.
According to Decker, police learned that Chadwell’s mother confided to her friend that her son had shot Henry. He said that after the shooting, Chadwell’s sister, Yulanda Chadwell, contacted family in New Hampshire requesting they take Chadwell to that state to “hide him out,” but family refused. “That was never used” at trial, Decker said.
Decker also said Chadwell had a motive to kill Henry. Henry had cut him with a machete five years before the shooting, causing injuries that required staples and stitches. According to Decker, Chadwell had planned to get Henry back.
“This is a no-brainer,” Decker said of the case. “There was motive. You got an eyewitness. You got a confession. You got family telling us try to hide him up in New Hampshire.”Taking the stand in his defense, Chadwell testified that police made promises that prompted him to falsely claim responsibility for a fatal shooting he did not commit.

Chadwell testified he was denied an attorney after asking for one several times, and that police told him he would be out of custody in a few years if he took responsibility for the shooting. Decker said he believes points from Chadwell’s testimony were false. He said that testimony could have been rebutted by a police official, had Special Assistant District Attorney Brett Vottero or Assistant District Attorney Amy Winston called one to the stand.
Jurors’ views
Three jurors contacted by The Berkshire Eagle spoke about their deliberations on the condition they remain anonymous. The names of jurors are a public record. The newspaper obtained the list of jurors from Berkshire Superior Court and contacted them.
One juror, a 58-year-old office supervisor, said that the 12-person jury cared about the fact that there was no evidence that police recovered a gun, saying, “if you have no gun, you can’t kill somebody.”
“What it came down to for us is that there was no presentation that he actually had a gun,” she said in a telephone interview. Chadwell was the only witness presented by his defense team. A portion of the prosecution’s case was based on videotaped interviews of Chadwell speaking with the police on three occasions, once in July 2017, a few weeks after the shooting, and twice in February 2018 following Chadwell’s arrest.
Chadwell initially denied shooting Henry, saying he was in Hudson, N.Y., at the time of the killing. He made a similar denial after his arrest Feb. 8, 2018. But about three days later, he asked to speak with investigators.
So investigators went in to the station to talk to Chadwell, who admitted that he shot Henry, and claimed he did so in self defense.
“He confessed to the murder because he did it,” Decker said.
The 58-year-old juror said the prosecution seemed to base its case on the taped confession. She said it appeared that Chadwell had indeed lied to police at times, making it difficult to decide when he was telling the truth on the stand. But one thing was certain in this juror’s mind: Chadwell cared for his sister, Yulanda. The juror said it was plausible to her that Chadwell would have falsely confessed to murder in order, as the defense theory went, to secure her release from police custody.
“He lied so many times … on the tapes that you know, it’s hard to know what’s truth and not the truth,” the juror said. “I think I do believe that he is very sincere of how close he is with his sister. And I do believe that he would do anything for her, including admit that he did this.”
Chadwell had testified he was told by an officer that his sister had also been arrested for murder. He also testified that an officer said his sister, who had had a cesarean section months earlier, had given police a “hard time, so they had to strap her to a chair.”Decker emphatically denied either of those points in Chadwell’s testimony were true, but said the prosecutor did not call a police witnesses to refute the testimony.
“Yulanda was not under arrest for murder. She was not in a restraint chair; never was in a restraint chair, we could have easily brought in people to say ‘no, [that] never happened,’ “ Decker said.
Another juror, offering thoughts on the evidence and jury deliberations, said he didn’t know for certain whether Chadwell was telling the truth on the stand, saying Chadwell seemed to be a “convincing or well-practiced liar.”
After watching the interview in which Chadwell admitted to shooting Henry, the juror thought was “he’s at least guilty of manslaughter.”
“So we can’t find Mr. Chadwell guilty of illegal possession of a firearm. If we can’t find him guilty of that charge, how can he be found guilty of the shooting? For all we know the shot was fired from a window across the street.”
Juror who deliberated in the murder trial of J.C. Chadwell
“Had the trial ended there, it’s quite possible he would be serving time for something,” the juror said.

But then the juror heard Chadwell testify and explain to the jury he had confessed “to help his sister, to protect his family, to get out [from custody] rather soon.”
He added that Chadwell testified that he had been to the hospital between the second and third interviews with the police, and received an opioid medication during his treatment.
“Did the medication alter his mental state?” the juror asked.
Besides, the juror said, there was no gun, no DNA, and no witness to the actually shooting. “We didn’t even hear what kind of bullet was used,” he said.
“So we can’t find Mr. Chadwell guilty of illegal possession of a firearm. If we can’t find him guilty of that charge, how can he be found guilty of the shooting?” the juror said. “For all we know the shot was fired from a window across the
street.”
