Earlier this week, I received my first "insider tip" from a source at the Isaac E. Young Middle School. My effort to follow up on that tip was rewarded by a knock at the door from two New Rochelle Police detectives carrying 9 mm handguns on their hips. (continued)
For regular readers who have been wondering why I have been only lightly involved with OlbyWatch over the past few weeks, this post should give you an idea of the crazy things I've been dealing with elsewhere. Over the summer I agreed to help some residents where I live in New Rochelle, NY to set up a web site to combat problems with the local school district. They've been asking me for years to help them set up a community site/blog but I begged off knowing that once I got involved it would take a lot of my free time to get this site up and running. Boy has it.
What I did not expect was a knock at my door from two detectives following up on a false complaint filed by a local school official in an attempt to dissuade me from posting a story that would be embarrassing for him. It's not exactly the sort of national news story I would normally cover here but I figure some regular readers might be wondering what I have been doing with myself evenings and weekend.
Of course, the incident is pretty minor given the scope of the problems that have been surfacing at the school run by a hack named Anthony Bongo, a school principal who has turned a local middle school into his own little fiefdom. There are all sorts of bad things happening at the school. I have been going about the process of documenting the various tips we've received since August.
One of the worst things was a major racial incident at the school which did make the local papers. Last year a white supervisor with black employees hung a stuff monkey on a noose in the building. When a black employee, a janitor, complained and removed the noose the supervisor responded by hanging up TWO more nooses. Now, you might think this would get someone fired. Nope. The guy got a reprimand. After the NAACP got involved they upped that to a three week suspension. Now, the NAACP has filed a lawsuit which is sure to cost local taxpayers a small fortune.
So when I said "bad" I mean REALLY bad.
