You can read the article here – Ontario officer to return to work after suspension This should more than suffice for what Gannett said they would consider willful copyright infringement in an e-mail they sent me for showing folks what I am responding to since I am banned (censored) from commenting on their site. Here’s the doc they served me with noted as Mansfielder Perspective to depict why I will not do what they said was in violation of terms in which I was unaware in agreement with. My guess is since their site is a tracking site there’s some kind of auto agreement? Will have to wait until I need Counsel to find out since I’m not a huge advocate of needing an Attorney regarding a Constitutional issue.
None the less, here are my concerns with this particular article in which I will thank Lou Whitmire for reporting what she could in the first place. How ever there are a few more questions here I believe as a citizen that concerns me.
1) Did the friend who was driving the Mercedes get ticketed, or since he was following behind did they wind up with a FREE PASS as well?
2) I am all in favor of second chances, but to be a repeat offender like many we already have in Richland County is a HUGE mistake, and we wonder why folks don’t learn once they have been through our no justice system? I will quote because I have been threatened legal action (I assume) for sharing what I have discord with in our local paper. Is a rap sheet like this by one who enforces these laws acceptable?
“Bartolucci’s personnel file included other disciplinary actions, including an Oct. 7 incident in which he followed in his cruiser on U.S. 30 behind a friend who was driving Bartolucci’s Mercedes rental car at speeds reaching 92 mph at 1:40 a.m.”
“Bartolucci also was disciplined in 2012 for borrowing night vision equipment from METRICH without the knowledge or permission of his supervisors, according to a report.”
“On Nov. 22, 2012, Bartolucci was deemed to be operating his cruiser in a “reckless” manner, per an investigative report, traveling at speeds reaching 106 mph on Park Avenue West while responding to a request for assistance by officer Lt. Howard Thomas near the railroad underpass. As he passed the Chambers Road intersection just east of the railroad underpass, his speed was noted at 98 mph, according to the investigation handled by Capt. Dale Myers. The report stated Bartolucci did brake and his speed decreased to 77 mph as he traveled through the intersection against a red light for Park Avenue West. “Any vehicular traffic north or southbound on Lexington-Springmill Road would have surely resulted in a high-speed crash. …” ”
What disturbs me even more, there are defenders of this behavior. Hopefully sharing this comment which is public via facebook it is not a violation of the law. I am simply quoting what I disagree with!
