So much to clarify.

Bo was a nobody with big ties, If you're a somebody in Bo's supposed line of business, the last thing you have to do is prove it.

Bo was more bullshit and blowjobs than badass, and Marty was dumb enough to buy into the lie.

Marty got cocky, to prove to a liar like Bo that he was a 'man', and it cost four lives.

Marty and Bo stayed together because they got away with murder. Until we sprung up. After they died. 'Naturally'.

Look up the very first instance I used the word 'Loonibi. I coined the word to express how Marty, Bo, and Loon actively conspired to concoct an interconnected alibi. I was mocked for years, but anyone now ensnared in that mass ass gadget is currently considered connected to a mass murder. Hi, Dee. Hi, Tony. Pussy is a great trap, and no pussy was so wide and deep, or commonly accessed, as Marilyn's.

Fuck you, Justin. wanna go on tape alone? I'll open and shit down your throat. No Marty, no Mommy, no Bo, no Sue. No Tina. No Johnny. No Dana. No Rick or Greg in the closet. Just a bitch named Justin vs. me. I'll print my real name on your forehead. With a Sharpie I've named "Tina".

When ever i get lost in the many layers of this case i always fall back on the loonibi theory. It clearly outlines motives, it exposes lies , it reveals implications from the very killers mouth/mouths, it is solid and it is the base of this entire ordeal. I fully support it as the reality that it can prove. It holds water it has merit! The 1st crime was the torture and murder of a single struggling mom and 3 juveniles whom she loved. The 2nd crime was le and associates cover up, an intentional make it dissappear asap bang job, they had a sweet deal lining there pockets and this needed to go away. The sick thing is even if dt had done the right thing it is highly likely bo would have cut some kind of deal and walked, and possibly m&m also would have exchanged testimony info on the corruption and kingpins and got at the very least a huge plea deal , if not walked, so sue being not well connected and poor is huge , it allowed them to all walk away one way or another, where are the riots and marches? I couldnt even imagine there last moments, what horror!

A person so fucked as to get into this shit has a buffet of bad ideas and motives at their disposal.



This statement has spun my head around to a new train of thought. Yes yes yes! this is a two threaded issue. If you realize that the killings and the coverup, including the staging, are two separate issues - and if you imagine that the staging directly involved even one member of law enforcement, then you might have the answer to why this case looks so much like other murders in the area.

If you have been involved in the investigation of other, prior murders, and want to cover up what happened in a brand new crime scene, you purposely make it look like one or more of those other crime scenes.

And with that, I am done doubting what happened because its so closely matches the murder of this or that other person!

Wow, Dmac, give me enough time, this horse WILL eventually drink the water.

Okay, Sue moved to Keddie to be near family. Her brother and sister both lived nearby but actually flew below the radar. Well below by the sounds of it. Sue, however, was not exactly Susie Homemaker staying home and baking from her Betty Crocker cookbook and picking wildflowers to put on the kitchen table. Sue wanted a man. Didn't seem to care much on whether they had common interests or would make great father figures for her already large family. Hanging out at bars and shagging was enough. As she didn't seem to show much interest in her kids, or even know where they were and who they were hanging with (remembering poor Tina with a friend in a pedophile's trailer), I don't know why she didn't just allow Mama Meeks to have custody of Sheila's baby. The baby was, after all, also a Meeks. Having come from an abusive marriage, Sue should have also realized that Cabin 26 was full of people that weren't comfortable for either her children or herself to give more than a passing nod towards. Inviting Justin over for sleepovers?? A woman clearly with her sights not set at safety level. Next door was a kind lady...the late Mrs. Seaboldt. A lady who sounds like she did pay attention to where her kids were. She realized Sue's cabin was not where she wanted her children to be. Dmac I realize you see more of the puzzle than I do. I'm holding only a few pieces. I've lived my whole life in a larger city, and worked in politics and for Criminal Investigation. Here the checks and balances in place allow very little room for any corruption. Most Police Commission meetings are held in public. Police are reprimanded and let go for even minor offences. A police officer found drunk and asleep inside his own vehicle, between shifts was relieved of duty....permanently, he was parked around the corner from the police station. I can't imagine the cesspool that Sue moved into. After the trailer park incident with Tina I don't understand why she stayed in the area. It was clearly not a good place to raise children. As for her advising Loon to leave her husband.....well, Loon had already moved on....she just hadn't physically moved out of yet. As Sue did sort of know the Meeks as her daughter and one of the Meeks' boys had already conceived a love child, she must have caught wind of Loon and Wade. If Sue had given the Meeks the baby, maybe she would have bought herself a level of protection.

As for 'cesspool' - I cannot ignore the mustachio'd turd in the room-the very cabin where Sue was brutally beaten and executed, after most likely witnessing her kids' demise had previously been inhabited by the highest ranking local law enforcement agent of the county-Sheriff Sylvester Douglas Thomas. The lack of details about his occupation & stay in Keddie is telling. Wouldn't a Sheriff residing in a tiny campground-size enclave make things better, and safer for its' inhabitants? Also so little(Albins) or none (Mollath) mention in any documents concrning this crime is absolutely a huge red flag in this situation. I've been lo-rent and know better than to take the lack of info concerning the owners/admin of Keddie as given. Shit is missing on purpose... I cannot escape the feeling that although I have no proof and know this website frowns on this conjecture, Cabin 28 was the target of a crime because it was Sly's cesspool previously.

And I apologize for drifting from the very pertinent thread subject of Bo's sketchy past.

There's all that, plus the fact Thomas told us (Princess and I) that he was great pals with Marty, that they'd drive around for hours in his patrol car, that Marty and Loon really lucked out to have him as a close friend for all the expert marriage counseling he gave them. Then he lied in the press, stating he was never friends with them, that a coverup is preposterous.

Then there's Rod DeCrona, lying in the paper about who his dad was. He wasn't some low-level beat cop, but he and Harry Bradley worked together at the DOJ- very high up. He's the one that helped put together the training wing of the DOJ that DT quit PCSO 99 days after the murders to head. How, exactly, do you think he managed to get that job so quickly?

Never meant to demean the victims. I only meant to state the obvious in that they were "nobody" to have such atrocities happen to them and then have the cover up denying justice for pushing 40 years.

Hi D.... all too well I remember chasing "Bobby Lake" and "Desantis".... I recall turning up info on Chicago police museum, a scandal/scam of some kind, a cop named Frank somebody or other in Sarasota..Bo being tied in there somehow. it was so long ago now I can't recall the details but I did post it all here somewhere.

I can try scouring my files for any info, if it's no longer here. Oh yes.. and that info I found about "John Boubede" ?? Mentioned as being in company with a guy who wrote a book about how to make millions with real estate.... turns out that book guy was a massive scammer as well (another file I gotta try & find). They were listed at the same Florida address in some online-accessible census or something, and the book guy was on several scam alert sites.

Yup, Garganos are a whole nother but closely related kettle of fish. Lotta stuff I'm not gonna post, put it that way.

Aus, I believe carny is the common tie. The Garganos won't go away because they point to Bo, whose SONS AND DAUGHTERS MARRIED GARGANOS, and OWNED the carny angle of this shit. Still do. MULTIPLE sons and daughters of Bo's forlorn loins. Inbreeding. WHAT the HOLY MOTHER FUCK is that about?

I'll name names when it comes to the scamfuck pigs involved in Bobby Lake, as they are GROUND ZERO for the corruption. I was looking over all the CRAP I've collected just a couple nights ago, and it's fucking mind-boggling.

These bastards have NOTHING to do with 28, but EVERYTHING to do with Bobby Lake. And that's a big step forward in the case, even if you're blind enough to believe Lake is Lake.

Aus, lemme say this: the cesspool is deep and hidden in plain sight. Send me an email, as I don't want you to joust windmills.

I love that post, and it's NAME is brilliant. Should I just merge this thread with yours? Makes sense to me, but I'm zoned on a new med. Not meant to walk or talk.

email me so I can send you what I've got on these bitches. It goes back to Chicago, and it probably ties directly into Circus Times. These scammers used the carny angle religiously, which is prob why their former HQ is a bap church. Garganos weren't in 28. They just mopped up the blood.

The other day, I was walking in from a windy morning to stand in line at a store. The song was "Try to Catch the Wind" by Donovan. I briefly despised Donovan.

Keddie is not wind but a man-made fart. Catch it, smell it, digest it if you can. Thousands of papers prove that foul smell is fomenting and formidable.

Frank Schira is a kingpin pig worthy of death His son is a sitting shitting sheriff. I hope they're not related.

    Inside the American Police
    Thursday, November 30, 1995 at 4 a.m.
    By Jason Vest

    Most people never look past the gravity-defying police car. The one stuck, Spiderman-like, high on the faaade of the three-story building on the northeast corner of Biscayne Boulevard and 38th Street. Tens of thousands drive past it every day, their expressions betraying varying reactions -- amusement, puzzlement, vague contempt. But as the American Police Hall of Fame and Museum recedes in the rear-view, so for the most part does the urge to explore it.

    Those who do venture inside are treated to an encounter with a RoboCop mannequin, who, despite his menacing appearance, incessantly utters a cheery "RoboCop would like to welcome you to the Police Hall of Fame. Please take your time and enjoy your visit." A tour of the museum affords "educational" stops at the electric chair exhibit (where visitors are invited to strap themselves in and hook up the electrodes) and the heady environs of the replica of San Quentin's gas chamber ("Take your time and enjoy yourself"), not to mention a few moments' gawking at the bullet-riddled, bloodstained section of wall dubbed the "St. Valentine's Day Massacre Exhibit." And a gander at the replica jail cell, stocks, and other punishment paraphernalia, including a cousin of the cane that whacked Michael Fay's posterior in Singapore.

    And, finally, a hushed sojourn at the Memorial, a high-ceiling room where taped organ music plays eerily, the name of every American cop slain since 1960 is affixed to the marble walls, and a sarcophagus centerpiece bears the inscription "To the unknown peace officer, known only to God."

    Of course, in the flower-draped Tomb of the Unknown Peace Officer, there's no body. Still, as a paean to tackiness and kitsch, the Hall is worth the six-dollar admission charge (three dollars for kids; just a buck for police officers, active or retired).

    But its operators have higher aspirations. Directors of a network of tax-exempt nonprofit groups that have raised more than $15 million since 1990, they portray the Police Hall of Fame as a mecca for American cops, sacred ground where blue knights can pay homage to their fallen colleagues and revel in the spirit of public order.

    In that endeavor, the institution's success is arguable. Law enforcement officers, leaders of professional police groups, and experts in charity fundraising have raised myriad criticisms. They say the Hall, much like the plastic Eternal Flame that glows Halloween-orange on the tiny patch of grass out front, is a hollow promise. Visitors, for one thing, aren't informed of the existence of another shrine to fallen cops in Washington, D.C., which is jointly maintained by a dozen police groups and open to the public, free of charge. Nor are they explicitly told that millions of dollars raised by the nonprofits that run the Hall are funneled not to worthy causes but to contracted fundraisers and a for-profit management company created by the charities' founder, Gerald Arenberg.

    Through his public relations consultant, Paul Scott Abbott, Gerald Arenberg declined to be interviewed for this story. Abbott says that his client, now "retired from all paid positions" at age 65, could not respond to any questions directly, owing to what the consultant says is a painful degenerative nerve condition. "He has bad days and worse days. He's not doing well," the consultant explains.

    The American Police Hall of Fame and Museum is jointly owned by two nonprofit groups, the American Federation of Police (AFP) and the National Association of Chiefs of Police (NACOP), both of which Arenberg founded and ran as executive vice president. Arenberg began his law enforcement career in 1950, as a deputy in the Cook County, Illinois, sheriff's department. After a four-year stint there, he moved to the tiny Chicago suburb of Golf, where he eventually became chief of the three-man police department. One day in 1955, he was directing traffic when a drunk driver slammed into him at 50 miles per hour. According to Abbott, Arenberg spent many painful months in a body cast; later, ambulatory but on crutches, the idea came to him to build a shrine to police officers.

    At the time, Arenberg was working at the offices of the National Police Officers Association of America (NPOAA), an organization he had co-founded in 1955 with a Chicago detective named Frank Schira. By 1961 NPOAA was growing into a full-time venture. After Chief Arenberg was named executive secretary that same year, he turned in his shield and moved to Venice, Florida, to open a national headquarters for the group. Still determined to build his shrine, he persuaded the General Development Corporation to donate land for the project in exchange for an NPOAA endorsement of a GDC housing development.

    Abbott says Arenberg left NPOAA and relocated to Miami in 1966 "following a change in management." While the PR consultant does not elaborate about what prompted the change, newspaper stories at that time indicate that the NPOAA had come under fire from other police groups for selling emblems and insignia that could easily be mistaken for official police gear. Arenberg, the NPOAA's board reportedly ascertained, was catering to police groupies just to raise money. So they fired him, with the full support of his onetime partner, Frank Schira.

    "We're an organization of full-time policemen, and we don't like the image we got from some of what Jerry did," Schira later told the Los Angeles Times. "We got rid of all that when we got rid of Jerry and most of the people who worked with him."

    Adding to his discomfort, Schira told the Times, was Arenberg's creation of two other institutions, the U.S. Federation of Police and the International Association of Auxiliary Police. Undaunted by his dismissal, Arenberg merged those groups into one new organization, the American Federation of Police. In 1967, continuing his quest for a shrine, he incorporated the National Police Museum, Inc.

    Two years later, on page one of the Los Angeles Times, the paper's then-Atlanta correspondent Jack Nelson penned a scathing report about Arenberg. Portraying the ex-cop as a transplanted flatlander with delusions of grandeur, Nelson wrote that Arenberg operated out of plush Miami offices, drove around in a new Lincoln, and squired guests about town in an AFP limo equipped with a phone. He also revealed that Arenberg was engaged in a transparent money-making scheme: He was running a diploma mill.

    At the time, Nelson recalls, several national commissions had published reports calling for higher police educational and training standards. And with cops everywhere anxious for ways to achieve academic respectability, Arenberg was making a tempting offer. "The AFP was a really sleazy outfit," says Nelson, now the Times's Washington bureau chief. "They had this thing, the National Law Enforcement Academy. They were giving out phony degrees all over the country. You'd pay some money, do some token course work, and be presented with this thing that was represented as some sort of great academic achievement. It was just bogus."

    Arenberg, despite his own lack of a college degree, was signing diplomas as "Dean Gerald Arenberg," Nelson reported. His co-signers were "Lt. Derrick B. Van Brode IV," the academy's "chancellor," and "Dr. Louis Wawrzyniak, chairman of the Academic Evaluation Committee."

    Nelson discovered that like Arenberg, Van Brode had no college degree; not only that, he didn't hold the rank of lieutenant in any known police department. The reporter also found that Wawrzyniak, a rookie cop and AFP member in Whiting, Indiana, wasn't a doctor at all; he had, in fact, never even graduated from high school.

    Paul Scott Abbott, Arenberg's PR consultant, declines to address the subject directly. "Arenberg has some difficulty recalling details of events of more than 25 years ago, but he does recall that Wawrzyniak presented credentials impressive enough to have fooled the U.S. Army, the State of Indiana, and others," is his only comment. Wawrzyniak, however, told Nelson that he never spoke with Arenberg about credentials, and that he had no idea "Dean" Arenberg wasn't a college graduate, either.

    It was Jack Nelson's view that Arenberg was capitalizing on fear of crime and civic unrest, "exploiting the law-and-order issue," as the reporter wrote in his 1969 article. Even as the story was being picked up by the wire services and receiving national attention, Arenberg's influence was growing. He had begun publishing a twice-monthly newspaper, the Police Times, and he made sure reporters and government officials got copies of it. He also made sure people noticed when he presented awards to police officers and legislators, and he came to be viewed as a respected spokesman for law enforcement; over the years, he has been quoted as an authoritative source in hundreds of articles in a vast range of publications. Only three years after its founding, national figures from both political parties were heaping praise on AFP. Then-senator John Tower, a Republican from Texas, referred to it as a "distinguished association."

    During the Seventies and Eighties, Arenberg and three associates -- Derrick Van Brode IV, Donna Shepherd, and Debbie Chitwood -- incorporated a slew of groups. Among them: the International Academy of Criminology, the American Police Academy, the Florida Crime Prevention Commission, the American Police Reserves, the Florida Union of Security Employees, the Armed Forces Military and Veterans Association, the National Association of Park Rangers, and the Venerable Order of Michael the Archangel. All were eventually granted tax-exempt status; several are still in existence.

    In 1976, Arenberg and Van Brode created a for-profit corporation called American Fraternal Programmers, Inc., whose stated purpose was to "provide comprehensive management of day-to-day activities of fraternal, educational, scientific, and charitable organizations."

    The only organizations managed by American Fraternal Programmers, Inc., however, are the ones run by Arenberg and his associates. In 1989 Arenberg and Van Brode relinquished ownership of the corporation to NACOP and AFP. While it's not unheard-of for nonprofit groups to have for-profit subsidiaries, according to the Better Business Bureau's Philanthropic Advisory Service, it is both unusual and troubling -- albeit legal -- that the directors of a for-profit group also direct the nonprofits.

    "There's nothing wrong with hiring a management company, but the question is, how do you decide who to hire, and is the decision made objectively? And in this case, these people have a financial connection if they're involved with the for-profit entity," says Bennett Weiner, vice president of the Philanthropic Advisory Service.

    Such issues, Weiner says, are an important part of his bureau's review process, though no review has been undertaken of NACOP and AFP. In the past two years, via certified mail, Weiner has sent requests for financial information to both groups. He has never received a reply.

    "We see no need to expend organization funds redundantly furnishing additional private entities with information already contained in registrations duly filed with each state in which there are programs," explains PR consultant Paul Scott Abbott.

    Federal law does require that nonprofits file annual tax returns, known as 990s, that detail all revenues and expenses. The forms are public record, and a nonprofit group must make available for public perusal copies of its past three filings.

    AFP and NACOP's 990s from fiscal years 1990 through 1993 indicate that Arenberg, Van Brode, Chitwood, and Shepherd have never claimed any compensation as AFP/NACOP directors and officers. However, the same 990 forms show that during the same time period, American Fraternal Programmers received nearly four million dollars in "service fees" from the combined coffers of NACOP and AFP. And because American Fraternal Programmers is a privately held, for-profit corporation, it has no obligation to publicly disclose how it spends the money it takes in -- or how much its officers and directors are paid.

    Abbott declined to provide New Times with any financial statements for American Fraternal Programmers. He does say, however, that last year the company had a total of 36 employees "drawing a total of $517,451 in wages," and that "based upon the average of 28 employees per quarter, the average wage was less than $18,500." Where the rest of the money goes, Abbott didn't specify. (Abbott also provided a Social Security Administration document showing Arenberg's lifetime earnings record. According to the figures, it wasn't until 1982 that Arenberg cleared $30,000 in salary, and he never drew more than $60,000 in a year. The document, however, shows only earnings, and thus excludes nontaxable fringe benefits, payments to qualified pension plans, or other deferred compensation.)

    "There doesn't seem to be any question that Arenberg is personally benefiting from this whole arrangement," says a lawyer in the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office who requested anonymity. Last year Pennsylvania fined AFP for using unregistered fundraisers. "We've taken him apart and looked at him in detail," the lawyer says. "He's got a for-profit company that's providing 'services' to his nonprofits, and his and others' salaries, which could be in six figures, are being funneled through this management company."

    That in itself is not illegal, says the attorney. "In a case like this, the only way for us to make an issue of it would be to show he's saying one thing on solicitations and then prove that absolutely none of the money is going to what he's saying. As long as some of it goes to the cause he represents, there really isn't anything we can do."

    It's a dreary autumn afternoon, but inside the Miami Beach Convention Center, at a booth toward the north end of the mezzanine, the mood is bright. On this, the second day of the annual convention of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, Suzy Sawyer, the burly, gregarious wife of a retired Maryland cop, continually bounds from her booth to greet old friends. Michael Kelly, chief of the Lewiston, Maine, police department, stops by to offer thanks. Chief Cel Rivera from Lorain, Ohio, asks Sawyer for technical advice. Terence McCardle, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms special agent in charge for Boston, gives her a big hug, while a bevy of other chiefs cluster around the table reviewing brochures and waiting for a chance to talk to "the angel," as one thief refers to Sawyer.

    She is the founder of COPS, or Concerns of Police Survivors. The group dates back to 1983, when, while attending National Peace Officers Memorial Day events in Washington, D.C., Sawyer noticed that police widows seemed to be a forgotten group. A year later, after Sawyer had taken it upon herself to lay the foundation, 110 survivors formally founded the organization in order to address what they saw as a neglected facet of police life: counseling and aid to survivors of slain officers.

    COPS now has chapters in nineteen states, including Florida. It has five paid employees, whose salaries range from $14,600 to $47,106. About a half-dozen times a year, the organization holds free grief seminars for survivors. It also provides free counseling to children of slain officers, has established a national peer-support group, and helps departments craft line-of-duty-death manuals. Earlier this year, COPS held its first weeklong grief camp, operated free of charge and staffed by survivors and professional counselors.

    Jenny Wolf is among the survivors COPS has aided; her husband Ted, a Maryland state trooper, was shot and killed in 1991 during what began as a routine traffic stop. According to Ben Wolman, a Maryland Fraternal Order of Police attorney, Ted's death was hard enough for Jenny to deal with. Her grief was compounded, says Wolman, by the American Federation of Police.

    After Ted Wolf's murder, local merchants began receiving calls from telemarketers, asking them to buy ads in the Police Times. Part of the payment would go to Trooper Wolf's family, the solicitors said.

    "Jenny was particularly upset -- she felt it was a commercialization of the tragedy," Wolman says. "She had no knowledge this was being done, absolutely did not authorize it and frankly did not want it done." The Maryland Attorney General's Office started to pursue the matter, but stopped after Arenberg complied with a cease-and-desist letter Wolman sent him.

    Paul Scott Abbott dismisses the Wolf affair. "It was based upon unfounded complaints by a local FOP unit," he says, "as well as the efforts of Suzy Sawyer and her COPS group A whom, it should be noted, raised five million dollars and then spent just $5000 on scholarships: a mere one-tenth of one percent of what they collected. Perhaps your questions implying that money does not go to a good cause," the PR consultant advises, "should be directed at her."

    As evidence of NACOP's superior services, Abbott cites the 81 scholarships, worth $500 apiece, the group has awarded since 1990 and the toys it distributes to orphaned children of police officers at Christmas. "Obviously there's [also] the memorializing of the name, rank, and department affiliation at the Hall of Fame," he adds. "And through various writings to departments and survivors, there's the placement and publication in local papers of stories about Peace Officers Memorial Day."

    Responds Suzy Sawyer: "Yeah, that really meets the psychological needs of survivors." As to Abbott's assessment of her group's finances, she does acknowledge that after voluntarily submitting to a review by an outside watchdog agency in 1994, COPS was criticized for characterizing certain fundraising mailings as being partially "educational" in nature. But Abbott, Sawyer says, is being disingenuous: The scholarship figure he cites was low because 1993 was the first year the COPS board allocated any money for scholarships.

    According to a recent audit commissioned by COPS, in 1994 the group raised $2.99 million and spent $2.94 million. Of that, nearly $1.2 million went to programs: grief seminars; peer support and benefits assistance; educational materials and awareness campaigns; police department assistance; awards, grants, and scholarships; and children's counseling.

    Total management costs and general expenses came to just under $700,000 for the year. The group also spent more than one million dollars in fundraising. At first blush, this doesn't seem great: COPS shelled out 52 percent of its money to raise the other 48 percent. But 1994 was the first year COPS commissioned a professional fundraiser; according to the Better Business Bureau, it usually takes several years for a new charity's fundraising-to-service ratio to improve.

    "If you're hiring an outside fundraiser for the first time, it's not at all unusual to experience higher than usual fundraising costs," says the BBB's Bennett Weiner. This, Weiner says, also highlights an important caveat when it comes to nonprofits: The fundraising/management vs. program services ratio isn't enough to go on when determining a nonprofit's effectiveness. It can come down to a matter of semantics, and depending upon how expenditures are itemized, a group that reports a low overall outlay for "program services" might actually be spending more hard cash on specific programs (or spending the money more wisely) than a group that shows a higher overall percentage.

    NACOP's and AFP's itemizations would seem to illustrate Weiner's warning.
    NACOP's most recent available 990 form indicates that for fiscal year 1993, the organization spent $1.5 million, a few thousand dollars more than it raised. With $530,000 going to fundraising, $160,000 to management and general expenses, and the rest to "program services," NACOP would appear to have spent only 45 percent of its intake on fundraising.

    The term "program services," however, appears to be misleading. Of the $851,728 not spent on fundraising and management, $335,924 went to distribution of "educational material," which includes the costs of producing a bimonthly magazine called Chief of Police; $46,896 was spent on the museum; $15,550 was paid to a Washington, D.C., consultant; and a $391,118 "management fee" was paid to American Fraternal Programmers. Of the money that remained, $43,226 was spent on awards to police officers and $19,014 on "other program services A such as scholarship grants, etc."

    AFP's 1993 990 return is at least as revealing.
    That year, about $3.65 million was raised, while expenses ran to $5.15 million. More than two million dollars was paid to fundraisers, while an additional $267,000 covered general expenses.

    Of the $2.8 million spent on "program services," nearly $900,000 went into producing the twenty-page Police Times newspaper (which, along with short articles about awards and court decisions, is chock full of ads for merchandise and mail-order medals sold by Arenberg's groups). About $25,000 was spent on the museum, and another $15,000 on "membership kits" including "badges, emblems, and other materials." Awards presented to cops "for valor and service" accounted for $8000. In its role as an educational organization, AFP indicated, $22,250 was spent on "training seminars and conferences that are given periodically." Another $45,000 went to "assistance to children of officers killed in the line of duty . . . and other miscellaneous program services," according to the group's federal disclosure form.

    The single largest expenditure listed under "program services": A $1,784,686 "service fee" to American Fraternal Programmers.

    According to its articles of incorporation, AFP exists "to promote the training of police reserves . . . [and] to assist family members of slain police officers through programs of compassion, scholarship and gifts, [and] to educate members of the general public about the contribution throughout history by law enforcement personnel."

    As to how AFP's spending achieves those purposes, Abbott asserts that with 55 percent of all expenditures going to "program services," the group "compares quite favorably with many widely recognized charitable organizations and has been commended by media and others." He mentions Police Times and other published materials as "an important part of AFP [educational] programs." As an example, he cites a publication called Take the Law into Your Own Hands Legally, noting that it was acknowledged with a letter of appreciation from Judge Lance A. Ito. (In his letter, Ito stated he had not yet read the book.) As for training expenditures, Abbott points out, "[AFP's] Private Security Officer Training School [has] trained more than 10,000 security officers since it began offering state-sanctioned training in 1990." He would not comment about how spending money to train private security officers qualifies as a service to AFP's members and donors.

    Finally, Abbott says that according to AFP's internal audit, the group paid American Fraternal Programmers "exactly $368,532.78 for the period of July 1, 1993 through June 30, 1994" -- and not the $1,784,686 listed on the 990 form, which covers the same time period. He suggests the disparity may be due to "incorrectly reading and/or interpreting the material" on the part of New Times.

    Concerned about what he terms "scurrilous criticism" that has been leveled at his boss, Abbott calls Arenberg a crusader "against tyranny, injustice, and public corruption.

    "I pray you will look hard and find the truth and in this, perhaps the final story to be written about Arenberg before he leaves behind the Hall of Fame and all his good deeds as legacies, you portray him not as the sinner his persecutors contend he is," implores the PR consultant, "but rather as the saint many of us who know him well believe he more truly is."

    At the mention of the National Association of Chiefs of Police, Dan Rosenblatt lets out an exasperated sigh. "We get people calling here complaining about them all the time," he says. "I get regular calls from citizens who are outraged that they get a telemarketing call from 'our' representative. I have to tell them we don't do that."

    Rosenblatt is executive director of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. In addition to running the day-to-day operations of the nation's oldest and largest organization of police executives, Rosenblatt is often called upon to perform another task: telling irate citizens that it's Arenberg's group, not his, that's hitting them up for cash. The confusion has become so pronounced, in fact, that since 1987, IACP has produced for public consumption three reports detailing the financial activities of Arenberg's various organizations.

    Founded in 1893 for the purpose of pooling resources and strengthening ties between police departments, the 13,000-member IACP is no slouch: Its criminal data files were the basis for the FBI's Identification and Uniform Crime Reports Divisions. The FBI also adopted IACP's bomb data center. The group has lobbied for higher mandatory police training standards and was instrumental in establishing the National Commission on Law Enforcement Accreditation.

    About ten times a month, from big cities to spots far off the beaten track, the IACP holds a training seminar on some aspect of policing. Eschewing phone and mail solicitations, the group takes a more restrained approach to fundraising, acquiring its money from membership dues, conference registration and exhibition fees, payments for training programs, and a few federal grants. It has 30 standing committees, as well as research, information, and psychological-services divisions, and a section devoted to helping individual departments write promotion exams.

    NACOP, on the other hand, was originally incorporated by Gerald Arenberg in 1967 as the National Police Museum, Inc. For 15 years subsequently, it was known as the International Academy of Criminology, and then, in 1982, was given its current moniker. Although it claims a membership of 11,000, unlike the IACP it will not release a specific list of members, nor will it specify the subjects and locations of the "60 training seminars" Paul Scott Abbott says NACOP offers on an annual basis.

    Most of the names on NACOP's letterhead are not preceded by the word "Chief." The group's president, Dennis Ray Martin, is a rural deputy sheriff who has a part-time job as chief (and sole officer) of the police department in Albee-Maple Grove Township, Michigan. The executive vice president, Morton Feldman, was dismissed as a lieutenant from the Broward County Sheriff's Office in 1993 for conduct unbecoming an officer.

    But then, according to NACOP's statement of purpose A which, as required by law, is on file with the Florida Department of Agricultural and Consumer Services A the group doesn't really have that much to do with police chiefs. NACOP's purpose, says the filing, is to "engage in direct mail or telemarketing contacts to make citizens aware of the problems that face the modern law enforcement officer, the toll in deaths and injuries, and the work of the American Police Hall of Fame."

    Every year NACOP does issue a report regarding police deaths in the line of duty. Not surprisingly, the majority are killed by criminals armed with guns. Though this might lead one to believe the group would favor some form of gun control, precisely the opposite is true: NACOP and AFP are among the scant few law enforcement associations that support the pro-gun lobby.

    Over the years, NACOP has released polls purporting to show that cops don't support gun restrictions -- despite the fact that every mainstream U.S. police group favors them. But perhaps this shouldn't come as a surprise: NACOP's Washington, D.C.-based vice president for public relations is John M. Snyder, who is also executive director of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, a militant Second Amendment group.

    All of which contributes to why Dan Rosenblatt chafes when he reads stories that quote anyone affiliated with NACOP. He is especially irked by NACOP's phone and mail fundraising operations, which he considers exploitative.

    It isn't that he considers his organization above reproach; an ex-Department of Justice lawyer, Rosenblatt was asked to take over IACP and straighten out its administrative operations in 1986, after a minor financial scandal in the organization.

    "In the early Eighties, several IACP staff members had misused a federal grant, and a few years ago, one of our board members, the Virginia secretary of public safety, resigned on account of improper gift taking from a Japanese businessman," Rosenblatt explains. Other associations, he adds, have made fiscal faux pas: "There are FOP chapters that have learned the hard way that certain ways of fundraising don't work too well for the people you're trying to raise money for."

    But from Rosenblatt's point of view, NACOP and AFP are in a league unto themselves, with phone solicitations and invective-laced direct mailings he feels are manipulative and misleading. "Usually the letters or calls refer to the local 'council' of AFP or NACOP, which insinuates that the money will be staying local or going to the local department," says the IACP director. "This has annoyed a lot of chiefs, to put it mildly."

    Jim Murray, for example, the police chief in Peachtree City, Georgia. Murray was irked in 1993 when he learned AFP telemarketers were saying his department was supportive of its fundraising efforts for "widows-and-orphans funds." He called Gerald Arenberg and asked him to amend his phone pitches. Six months later, when the AFP fundraisers repeated the performance, Murray was furious, and told a local newspaper he considered it "the lowest form of degradation to use a dead police officer's kids to make money."

    In Putnam Valley, New York, last year, Chief William Carlos issued a press release denouncing the AFP's Police Family Survivors Fund as "but one of many fundraising schemes by many companies owned by Gerald Arenberg," and encouraged citizens to donate to COPS.

    And late last year, Spokane, Washington's police chief hit the ceiling when a citizen sent him money along with a NACOP mailing. "It was reasonable for a person receiving that letter to conclude the money would be going to the Spokane police, and here [that implication] is illegal," says David Horn of the Washington Attorney General's Office, which is suing NACOP and its contractors for violation of the state's charitable solicitations act.

    Abbott says NACOP is cooperating with Washington authorities, and he blames such incidents on overzealous contractors over whom NACOP has no direct control. Characterizing NACOP's and AFP's telemarketing strategy as generally "highly ethical," Abbott maintains that solicitors use no "slimy phone tactics" and concentrate instead on mailing their messages.

    But Gerald Arenberg's fellow police chiefs don't seem to care much for the mailed messages, either. Earlier this year, the New Jersey Chiefs of Police Association blasted NACOP for attempting to capitalize on the O.J. Simpson trial after citizens received a fundraising letter signed by Arenberg's successor, Lt. Morton Feldman. The letter, which deemed Mark Fuhrman a "genuine American police hero," included the following reply card:

    "Dear Lt. Feldman: You're right. That slick defense attorneys become filthy rich by degrading good cops like Det. Mark Fuhrman is absolutely disgusting. To show Detective Fuhrman and all other police heroes in America I care, I am sending you my signed letter of support to Mark Fuhrman along with my major tax-deductible gift."

    According to Abbott, the letter was written in March and sent out in April, long before the Fuhrman tapes hit the news. But, he admits, "I think the organization would have preferred that letter had not gone out." In an upcoming issue of Chief of Police magazine, he promises, Feldman will write about "what a disgrace Mark Fuhrman is to law enforcement."

    Another NACOP appeal, this one received by residents of South Bend, Indiana, pushed O.J. hot buttons, as well.

    "One hundred fifty-seven men and women were killed protecting you and your family from exactly the kind of scum that these . . . filthy rich, overpaid . . . defense lawyers earn thousands of dollars for sending back to your neighborhood," Feldman rants. "How can these slick, high-powered defense lawyers go on national TV and tell you with a straight face that Simpson has been framed by a vengeful, racist police force? . . . The answer is that these $4000-a-day lawyers don't really care about you or your family's safety."

    Apparently, though, there's a place in Feldman's heart for some high-priced defense lawyers. A photo gallery at the Hall of Fame depicts well over a hundred celebrities A among them Loretta Swit, Gavin MacLeod, Ted Danson, Lindsay Wagner, Don Rickles, William Shatner (appropriately decked out in T.J. Hooker garb), and Big Bird A who are members of the organization's Citizens Celebrity Advisory Board. "Their names alone are worth millions to the museum," notes an explanatory sign. And listed in a brochure that features the names of selected board members is none other than F. Lee Bailey.

    Indeed, in a museum filled with vivid antidrug exhibits and other displays betraying a predilection for capital and corporal punishment, some of the celebrity advisers seem odd choices. A photo of noted ex-heroin junkie Keith Richards hangs on the wall. Martin Sheen, who's always happy to be arrested for a good liberal cause, sends his best wishes. And even though the Police Times berates him for supporting condemned-to-death Philadelphia journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal, there's M*A*S*H alum Mike Farrell.

    On your way out of the American Police Hall of Fame and Museum, for an extra $1.50 you can pick up the latest issue of Police Times and do a little shopping. Pay $35 for a J. Edgar Hoover Distinguished Service Medal. For $10.50, a "Fellow of the Police Academy Certificate" is yours. A $65 outlay buys a home-study course from the American Police Academy in "Basic Marksmanship with the Modern Handgun." Or pitch in $695 for a weeklong cruise.

    Those offerings, and everything else you see around you, compose the legacy of Gerald Arenberg. If he isn't a saint, he has a lot going for him: Saints, after all, have to die, and then usually wait centuries for a shrine. Arenberg has his today. And as long as someone is willing to pay six bucks for a walk-through, he'll never be forgotten.

Beliles said the contract with the fundraisers, whom he refused to identify, had been broken and the solicitors were being sued. Michigan Atty. Gen.

Kelley's suit described the groups as a "public nuisance" and said they were using the names of Haig, Ford, ... tion, and the National Police Reserve Officers Association of America.

Reflections on TV
Even Gold Braid Yells
By Ogden Dwight
THE COLD War must have frozen some people's sense of humor. Take this editorial by Frank J. Schira'; executive director of the National Police Officers Association of America, mass-mailed to squad rooms, newspapers, politicians, etc. Mr. Schira objects passionately to Nat Hiken's NBC-TV series about Officers Toody and Muldoon and their comedy antics in "Car 54, Where Are You?". Quoting Mr. Schira: "If we, as policemen, acted in any way as the men in 'Car 54' do, we would be fired immediately or committed to a mental institution." We would hope so. "It is degrading to us . . . Respect for the badge is being laughed out of existence." To that, Des Moines Police Chief Vear Douglas replies, "I disagree, 100 per cent. I watch the series every chance I get, and if you took a poll down here, you'd find most of the men do, too. I don't see anything in It that 'degrades' us. I tlso like the Keystone Kops." Let Mr. Schira warm up: "This type of program establishes a pattern which is dangerous. It could lead to a breakdown in the effectiveness of law enforcement. It defames the good character of the police." Defames'.' How silly. Let Des Moines Officer Herman Hansen reply: "I wear Badge 54, and when kids yell at me, 'Where are you,' I'm a human being to them, not a bogeyman they're afraid of. Lock, people are sensible it's humor, and no TV program will ever be able to degrade the LAW. "I'm tall and slender. My buddy, officer Raymond Dare Badge 85, is short and chubby. You got it he's Toody and I'm Muldoon, and even the gold br:-id hollers 'Car 54' at us, all thetime. We get a kick out of it everybody gets a kick out of it." Then Mr. Schira rails: "Hundreds of thousands of young people are laughing . . . and in these critical times ... we cannot afford to have di?respect . . . The policeman is not a clown." Of course not but Mr. Schira doesn't seem to understand that Toody and Muldoon are clowns, not policemen. In these critical times we need more laughter, not less. Steve Allen, an expert, writes, "It would be more rational and rewarding to live with comedy even when it is aimed in your direction, and to appreciate that humor is a gift of the gods enabling us to multiply magically our sometimes meaner fund of material joy."

POLICE GROUP LAUDS WILSON FOR CLEANUP

Police Supt. Orlando W. Wilson was praised Saturday in a policy statement by Frank J. Schira, president of the National Police Officers association, which cited Wil- son for his campaign to clean up the police department.

Schira called commendable "the action by every legal means of removing police officers whose conduct or morals would bring discredit to the law enforcement pro- fession."

Honest policemen welcome investigations to out corruption "so that the pro- fession may rid itself of those who would tarnish the star," Schira said.




This nation is at war. The cost in lives and property is far greater than any war we have
ever fought on foreign soil. The public, the courts, and a majority of the legislators have
failed to realize that we are in a war here at home. The murderer, the rapist, the thief, the
organized gangs are just as deadly, just as dangerous as the Viet Cong. The police officer
who does his duty is in far more peril in many ways than our soldiers overseas. He is
certainly not the hero that our fighting men are in the Far East . . . yet he is fighting the
war on the home front.

OKAY, folks, I've tied Bo to longstanding LE fraudsters- FROM CHICAGO. Just as I tied his closest 'daddy', Jimmy Rini, to the same. This is no false avenue, This is home run territory, telling me loud and clear Bo was PROTECTED long before he fell on Marty's couch. It's this LE connection that had him pulling the very scams that put him on Marty's fucking couch! Full-circle reality is one big bitch, huh?

Let me make this clear as snot: I have no reason to believe Bo's history of protection covered his ass in the Keddie Quad. He had kittens in the early minutes of the sham interview, so Crimely/DT are a totally different School of Scoundrels. Bo had no clue they were giving head. How could he? His dick was shot off in '58.

dmac wrote:OKAY, folks, I've tied Bo to longstanding LE fraudsters- FROM CHICAGO. .


Just to recap the connections here..

-- In 1981, Bo was carrying an expired ID "Bobby Lake", signed by Frank Schira.
-- Bo had a history of running scams, using the name of a charitable police organisation to fleece thew police themselves.
-- The man who signed the ID ran that same police organisation Bo named.
-- That same police organisation was itself busted for fraud, and one of the few people who came out smelling like roses was the guy who signed Bo's ID.
-- This man was a cop in Chicago for 20 years+ -- his old partner wrote a book all about the crimes they investigated -- a lot of mob stuff, bank robberies, etc.
-- Bo, of course, was a mob-related criminal in Chicago.
-- The cop who signed his ID went on to run for sheriff in Sarasota, Florida.
-- Bo has deep ties to Florida, as well.
-- As Bo's fake/misappropriated ID was only a couple years out of date, it must have been signed by Schira while Schira was in Florida... IF he signed it at all. Seeing as how Bo obviously loved to troll the cops, he could have faked the Schira sig as a way of trolling the man... which would imply they knew each other, perhaps from the old Chicago days. And the police scamming police/Bo scamming police using the same name as those same police scamming police could be.. coincidence.

Or... not.

So if we want to find the real Bobby Lake.. we gotta follow Schira. I found a couple of far-edge-of the-ballpark candidates but none solid enough for my liking, yet.

Albert Ackerman, second In command; and one sergeant have been called to appear before the grand jury on Tuesday and Wednesday. Eleven of the 21 police officers have been subpoenaed, plus a radio operator and a member of Shively's unpaid auxiliary police force. The subpoenaed officers are not necessarily targets of the investigation. Federal officials delivered the subpoenas to Shively headquarters Wednesday morning. A Shively officer said yesterday that at least eight of the men who were subpoenaed met yesterday with two attorneys. He said the attorneys advised them on how the grand jury works and discussed the Hobbs Act and the RICO statute. The officer said the men were told that they could tell the jury "anything you have to tell them" and that they also had the right to remain silent under the Fifth Amendment. The officer said the officers' reactions to the subpoenas ranged from anger and worry to mockery. The officer asked not to be identified because a superior had ordered him not to discuss the matter. The FBI has looked into allegations of public corruption in Shively over the last several years, although no indictments have resulted. Apparently as part of the current probe, FBI agents began questioning Shively residents and former and current police officers after a controversy about police involvement in an election campaign last fall. Some residents and two mayoral candidates, Jack Abel and Anthony Ragozine Sr., had charged that police distributed fliers denouncing the candidates' business practices, threatened voters and vandalized campaign signs. Burks was re-elected to a four-year term as mayor in that campaign. Susan Sharrard, the night manager of Scotchman's Lounge in the Royal Inn, 4444 Dixie Highway, said at the time that she saw Donio and two other men destroy one of Ragozlne's campaign signs. Both she and Ed Stumler, editor of The Shively Newsweek, said they told the FBI they had received threats after reporting the incident. Abel said last night that a Shively auxiliary policeman distributed unsigned fliers the night before the election saying that Abel and See GRAND PAGE 3, coL 2, this section By JIM DETJEN Courlor-Journal Staff Writer Shively city officials reacted skeptically last night to reports that a federal grand jury Is investigating possible criminal wrongdoing by members of the city's police ' force. At least 11 of the city's 21 police officers have been subpoenaed by the grand jury to testify next week about possible violations of federal criminal statutes. The grand jury's probe stems from an FBI investigation into police practices under Shively Police Chief Michael J. Donio. "The whole thing is one big farce," said Shively Mayor John Burks. "I think the thing's just trumped up. To my knowledge the police haven't done anything wrong." He said that some people "won't let nothing lie anymore. They want to get things stirred up." And George Schuhmann, special counsel for the city, said he doubts that the federal grand jury will uncover any wrongdoing. "I welcome the investigation. I think it's healthy that the grand jury is looking into this kind of thing," he said. "But I don't think they'll find anything. I doubt that the police have intentionally violated any law." Repeated efforts to reach Donio yesterday for comment were unsuccessful. And neither U.S. Attorney Ronald E. Meredith nor FBI officials would comment on the investigation. No charges have been filed in connection with the probe. One source said the grand jury is looking into possible violations of the Hobbs Act, which is frequently used in federal prosecutions of local officials, and an anti-racketeering statute known as RICO. The Hobbs Act makes it a crime for a public official to use his office to take the money or property of others. The RICO law (for Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) has been used only a handful of times in Kentucky during the 12 years it has been on the books. The Louisville Times reported that the federal grand jury will ask about instances in which one or more officers may have aided and abetted in the commission of a crime; engaged in a criminal conspiracy; used their official capacity to further illegal activities; or violated a federal anti-racketeering statute.

Ok --- here's proof that all these police association scams are directly linked -- including the one which ostensibly employed "Bobby Lake".

Now I'm wondering several things:

1. Was this "Bobby Lake" - a "staff" member -- actually Bo? Was he actually working as one of these scamming "solicitors" who year after year apparently took hundreds of thousands from the public and gave a pittance to the charities? Sounds right up his alley...

2. Was all this about money laundering?

3. How in the hell could Schira et al, as organisers, NOT know they were scammed, several years in a row?


Inside The Hall Of Fame
By BILL SLOAT News-Press Staff Writer

A police-oriented Southwest Florida group, calling Vice President Gerald Ford and Nixon aide Gen. Alexander Haig "honorary" officers, collected more than a half-million dollars in the name of charity during 1972 but donated only a fraction of the sum to the needy, according to Florida officials. The state has barred the charity - the National Police Hall of Fame - from seeking any new donations, the News-Press learned. The money was to be paid to the widows and orphans of police killed in the line of duty. Ford's office issued a statement Tuesday admitting he had permitted the charity to list him as an "honorary" officer. But the vice president said he was not involved in the fund-raising drive and said he received no cash from the post. A spokesman for the National Security Council said Haig received a letter from the organization while he was Dr. Henry Kissinger's aide. "He received a routine letter and it was responded to in a routine fashion. He did not give them permission to use his name," the Haig spokesman said. The Florida secretary of state's office reported it revoked the certificate of registration as a charitable organization for the National Police Hall of Fame because it collected $515,609 and donated only $27,000 to charity. The Hall of Fame is headquarters for the National Police Academy, the National Police Officers Association, and the National Police Reserve Officers Association of America. Ford is listed as vice president of the police officers association, and Haig is listed as president of the police reserve officers association. The Hall of Fame is located on U.S. 41 near Venice. Hall of Fame President Frank Schira refused to answer questions about the organization's fund-raising activities. Hall of Fame attorney Richard Beliles said the group had contracted with another organization to raise funds "and that's what caused most of these problems." Beliles said the contract with the fundraisers, whom he refused to identify, had been broken and the solicitors were being sued. Michigan Atty. Gen. Frank Kelley filed suit Tuesday seeking to bar the four groups from raising money in that state. Kelley's suit described the groups as a "public nuisance" and said they were using the names of Haig, Ford, Michigan Gov. William Milliken and U.S. Senator. Continued On Page 2-A


2-A Charity Got Few Funds From Drive, State Says

Robert Griffin, R-Mich., "The first one reported income of $113,162 but was filled out improperly. We sent it back, and they submitted a second report showing income of 5289,142. 1 refused to accept it and said it must be accompanied by an audit from a CPA. "The third report was submitted properly, but it showed income of $515,699.73 which was collected for the support of widows and orphans of dead police officers. But it also said that only $27,000 was spent for charity, the rest was used for' solicitation, office expenses and salaries." unauthorized purposes. Bob Green, coordinator of charitable solicitations for the Florida secretary of state's office, said he revoked the Hall of Fame's registration as a charity because it submitted "inaccurate reports" of its 1972 fund-raising activities. Green said the financial statements are required by state law. "They submitted three reports." Green said Ma, Condominium Approved By County Green said he has notified 28 other states the Hall of Fame has been banned from collecting funds and is no longer registered as a charity in Florida. "If they solicit outside of the state, and contributions are coming into the state, that is a violation of the charitable funds act," Green said. The Sarasota County Sheriff's Department said it investigated the group last month along with Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents, and had submitted the results of the investigation to the state attorney's office. Sheriff's spokesman Capt. Robert Cramer said several police departments have made inquiries about the four organizations. "We always tell them that the Hall of Fame is under investigation by the state, and until the results are finalized we will not support its claims," Cramer said. Ford's press secretary. Paul Miltich, said the vice president was offered an honorary post in 1971, when Ford was Republican minority leader in the U.S. House of Representatives. "He at no time authorized the use of his name in any such fund-raising activity," Miltich said. "He recalls their having written him to become an honorary vice president and he accepted that. At no time was anything mentioned of fund-raising activity." Michigan Asst. Atty. Gen. Edwin Bladen said the lawsuit filed Tuesday morning in Circuit Court at Lansing names all four organizations, the Hall of Fame, the National Police Academy, the National Police Officers Association, and the National Police Reserve Officers Assoc. Bladen said the suit was based upon a year-long investigation that began with a complaint from Milliken. who said his name was being used by the group to solicit funds in Michigan.
