THE HEZITORIAL- THE BLUE TRUTH: Disinfecting the Lingering Stench at the Yonkers PBA By HEZI ARIS

Hezi Aris Blue Truth 118 Comments

IMCob-SurveillanceOn July 05, 2013, Yonkers PBA President Keith Olson, assisted
by Yonkers PBA lawyers, seemingly engaged The Quinn Law Firm, L.L.L.C., as if they were in
his personal employ as legal counsel. They disseminated a letter admonishing readers of
the Yonkers Tribune. The catalyst
behind the “seemingly” legal warning stems from concerns over allegations
suggesting Yonkers Police Benevolent President Keith Olson engaged in gross
misconduct
; specifically because he is tasked with the job of protecting the
rights of all members regardless of personality conflicts. In his opening
statement, Olson took the attitude of blaming everyone for the contentiousness
of his conduct. He never directly addressed the seriousness of the allegations
of gross misconduct by him and his two collaborators, Yonkers Police 4th
Precinct Captain John Mueller, and Det. Sgt. Brian Moran of the Yonkers Police Detective
Division, who have allegedly engaged in Olson’s “dirty laundry” for years.

Little time transpired before Mueller and Moran were in charge of the Intel
Unit (Intelligence Unit) becoming responsible for all confidential police
records and personnel files that had and have allegedly made their way to the
copy machine. Sources advise that after the files were copied, the files were
moved out from their previously uncompromised place of storage over many years,
to the Internal Affairs Unit where they now are now reportedly stored since former
Yonkers Police Commissioner Edmund Hartnett’s departure approximately two years
ago. Insiders have reported that Moran transported most of the files in the
rear seat of his police cruiser. One must wonder why. Olson’s open letter to
the readers of the Yonkers Tribune
demonstrably proclaimed his close bond to his only “two great” former Housing
Department
friends. The gist of Olson’s letter is that too much mud has been
flung in his direction; his concern is that it cannot be power washed off.

The allegations that Yonkers PBA President Keith Olson vehemently
denied or purposely avoided are as follows:  

1) The alleged secret meetings with John Fleming, during
which discussions took place targeting then Yonkers Police Commissioner Robert
Taggart for the purpose of having one of their choosing succeed Commissioner
Taggart. Det. Sgt. Brian Moran is purportedly a distant relative of John
Fleming who eventually was appointed a Special Adie to then Mayor Phil Amicone.

2) The alleged meetings that took place at which then Yonkers
police Commissioner Edmund Hartnett was made aware of the conduct of the “Three
Amigos” where he agreed to have a blind eye and sign off on allegedly whatever
unauthorized investigations were instigated by the threesome; and

3) Allegedly collecting, gathering, and tampering with
official police personnel files and records thereafter to allegedly be used
against potential critics and foes as a means of intimidation and retribution;
and

4) Allegedly filing false complaints against his own members;
and

5) Allegedly impeding internal investigations with frivolous
cross complaints; and

6) Allegedly unscrupulous fundraising practices; and

7) Allegations of missing disbursement funds, not to mention
an immodestly paid PBA counsel that cost the membership about $120,000 per
annum, plus potential referral business; and

8) Additionally, a whopping stipend of $4,000 a month in
favor of Yonkers PBA President Olson; and

9) Despite the list of concerns over his conduct and the perception
it conjures in people’s minds, Olson dismisses the allegations by not referring
to them. He maintains a wall of silence, denial, and lies. His conduct cries
out for an investigation and demands assurance that the chain of command is
honored without bias, the merits of abiding by the law, and the oath sworn to
the Yonkers Police Department.

Their collective dismissiveness found them spinning the hair raising
allegations, so out of whack with what is alleged to have transpired over many
years, that Olson and Mueller find themselves in an uphill battle to maintain
their credibility while allegedly attempting to impede a serious internal
investigation into the conduct of the Fourth Precinct Captain. Allegedly the
Captain, along with Olson’s union assistance may have intentionally misled
investigators, prompting Internal Affairs staff to bear the brunt of the
investigation. The jury is still out on that one.  

There were also reports that at a recent PBA meeting, Olson’s
board members and a handful of Kool-Aide swilling loyalists gave him a standing
ovation after he told his membership that he would not step down; that was after
he informed them not to expect a contract until 2015, which will mean that
almost a decade will have passed before a new contract will be finalized,
likely learning that Yonkers Police Department personnel will only gain zeros in
contracts further into their future. One must wonder the rationale of greeting
this “news” with a resounding standing ovation and handclap by the Kool-Aide
swilling believers. Why else would anyone be clapping for a union leader that has
not secured a contract for his members under his former friends Hartnett, and former
Yonkers  Mayor Phil Amicone, who is also presently
embroiled under a cloud of controversy. This has taken place while Olson landed
his sister a high paying job at Yonkers City Hall, and Yonkers PBA union members
continued to rack up bills he initiated. The final straw to break this camel may
be a looming federal lawsuit rumored to be scrutinizing Yonkers’ own Three Musketeers.

Keith Olson has shown himself to be arrogant, insular, and
using his own words regarding his “two great” friends, believes they all
allegedly stand above the protocol and procedures defined for them by the
Yonkers Police Department, as well as the law. Olson and his friends stand
accused of serious internal and unscrupulous conduct clearly supported by
internal emails, memos, and internal letters of complaints needing and
demanding oversight of the Yonkers PBA leader by an independent, outside
investigative agency, and /or an independent commission.  Sometimes only an erudite press / media can
ask and reveal the tough issues. In Olson’s case he has not publicly addressed
any concerns, except for his steadfast legal advice that is meant to deny and
obfuscate everything. What is more evident to all but Olson himself is that he
is a hot potato who walks about persona non grata. The
reverberating echoes heard in the halls and offices of the Cacace Justice
Center and various precincts in Yonkers is that no high ranking official wants to
be soiled by Olson and his “two great” friends. 

Among the many years of august and respected chapters of the
Yonkers PBA, there has never been a more propitious time demanding for an
independent prosecutor to take a look into the inner working of the Yonkers
PBA, specifically under the aegis of Det. Keith Olson, and his rogue supervisor
friends that allegedly premeditated and executed some of the allegations he
continues to refuse to address. Despite Olson being offered to respond to the
allegations divulged, Olson has chosen not to substantiate his conduct and
those of his cohorts. Their collective silence diminishes and besmirches the
integrity of the men and women in blue. That being the case, how can the
administration continue to protect these protagonists knowing that the media is
aware of the integrity of the allegations made and others that are still to be revealed?

It should be recognized that the “Blue Truth” series has
afforded the Yonkers Police Department the time and opportunity to address the
allegations divulged. Were the YPD left to its own internal devices, devoid of
political intrusion from within and without Yonkers City Hall, these issues
would have been mitigated by now. Instead, every day that passes without remedy
tarnishes the YPD, the PBA, and CLSA. That is not right. These concerns must be
mitigated and concluded with deference to the law, the oaths sworn by each
member of the YPD, in order for function to eclipse the present internal
dysfunction.

    hey not forgotten….dont worry the city is put on notice and soon another notice of intent will be filed against the city,the more time the administration takes to correct the wrong the better the judgement……

  2. notforgotten

    The fact that a Captain who thinks that that he is running a separate police department from the rest is enough to dump him as a commander. However, now you have a commander that purposely lied to authorities to cover up a three tour alcoholic party. In NYC, they not only investigated a crime but arrested and charged them for lying. This will not go away until this Captain follows the rules like the three supervisors he and Olson threw under the bus. Justice will be served by an independent investigation. Lets us not forget that this man also reported an incident to the investigators, and then refused to cooperate. Why, because him and his friends falsely reported it. Not forgotten, and will come back to haunt the city, and officials.

  3. morelies

    What is important about tonight’s show, is that Olson will continue to lie to his members, and most definitely talk about the DOJ investigation into the YPD. What he will not mention is how he and his supervisors friends conspired against their own department members, which in essence is conspiracy to target and commit crimes against police officials.
    It is widely know that JM purposely lied to investigators, and Olson impeded the investigators by visiting the precinct several times to make sure that no one would turn on the disgraced Captain, who threw a three tour drinking party after he and Olson duped politicians into rescinding a transfer order for the Captain. Olson’s presence in the precinct was meant to intimated new members, and to tell them what to say investigators as they continued to investigate the incident.

  4. don'tblamethechef

    This is about the head of the PBA and a couple of rogue supervisors who were attempting to silence, and hold hostage a department with threats, and lies. Now they are exposed to the entire department and city for their acts of Official Misconduct. At first they tried to say it was one or two disgruntled employees, but that was soon disproven with the facts, and witnesses. Now they are attempting to silence, and deceive the readers of this site by besmirching Hezi for reporting the facts. The facts are the facts, and that will be left up to the an investigative agency to uncover. No Keith, you and your friends were completely outside the law. You need to step aside, and let the members of the Police Department decide who will reshape the image of this union. You and your friends will soon be dealing with Official Misconduct charges.

  5. 300Quarropas

    Hey fellas its confirmed the Feds are looking at YPD and they are going back 8 years S.C.U. is definitely on their radar, just a matter of time before they start talking to other members, remember you can lie to IAD,but you go to jail lying to a FED……

  6. mudsite

    Well mud site, maybe you really do not know what’s going on. This is not fiction, these are real live allegations that have actually occurred and need to be investigated. Is it mud when you raise funds , and it never reaches its destination? Is it okay for Olson and his two great friends to premeditate unauthorized investigations against CLS and PBA members? Is it mud when you take official police files and copied them for your own personal use against your own union members? Is it mud when you purposely lie to police investigators? Is it mud when you set up your own members? Is it mud when you do illegal searches of phone records, and IP addresses? I think the City and all of its members know the real truth. How about this Mr. Mud site, match your paper work up against the internal emails, letters, complaints, and memos. When you do, you along with the DOJ, will find Official Misconduct was committed more than once. No mud, just the truth. I know the truth hurts, but it never changes. Don’t blame the media for uncovering the dirt bags.

  7. morningreporter

    DOJ soon to investigate Yonkers PBA President, and his two rogue supervisors for their Official misconduct and for past fund raising practices.

  8. Timetocleanhouse

    It is very true that these police department officials need to be held accountable for their actions within the Police Department. At this juncture only the DOJ can handle this now. As for the Yonkers PBA leader, he himself clearly faces a Federal Inquiry and by January the members of this department will make the ethical change they need. There will be a new face to the word PBA. YPD members will not longer believe the lies that is spewed from Olson’s lips.

  9. theneedforDOJ

    After reading these series of article’s since May, it is very apparent that the DOJ must look into these acts of Official Misconduct by these members of the Yonkers Police Department. Setting people up and conducting warrantless searches of peoples cell phones records, and allegations that personal computer addresses may have been compromised without search warrants is a crime. This articles set forth by Hezi need to be taken seriously.
    As for this Captain, it is alleged that he had made false and misleading statements to police department officials. That in itself is clearly Official Misconduct. There clearly seems to be a pattern of Federal laws that were violated, and well as State laws. No employee of any police department should be subjective to these lawless acts from union thugs and there friends, who clearly have abused their authority.

  10. Catgotyourtongue

    Keith Olson and his two pets can’t respond because everyone in YPD knows it is all true, and then some. The desert will be a complete forensic audit by the DOJ for the past eight years. Then you will learn more disturbing news about your PBA leader. Maybe they will find W.S. money too.

  11. Empire State College Valedictorian

    I was the last one finished taking the Lieutenant’s exam yesterday and my test taking formula will prove successful. I will be in the top 5 guaranteed!

  12. cometopbameetings

    Here is what you get when you go the Keith Olson Lie and Deceive Night Show:
    #1 Olson telling members that you are not getting a contract until late 2015.
    #2 my great good friend is going to be the next Police Commissioner, or Chief.
    #3 Dale Hughes is ready to take another statement off Medina or any other cop who wants to talk.
    #4 The Quinn law Firm needs more money to defend the me.
    #5 Frankie F. does the back flip, and head stand after the he gets the fat eyes from the head cheese maker.
    #6 one quarter of the board being forced to clap, and stretch a smile.
    #7 I never kept any fund raiser money, or targeted any CLSA, or PBA members….or removed or copied files…or searched peoples work stations
    #8 we have a special menu with cheese specials
    #9 Its all a misunderstanding
    #10 Please its all RM’s fault, we can work this out is you give me a Dale another two long years.

  13. Failure

    Guess we should just all shut the f*ck up and allow this guy to call all the shots. Who needs a police commissioner when you have KO. He can wear two hats. Good luck people. The guy is inept and isn’t even qualified to be a Dick.

  14. Extraextra

    Who starts out a sentence with yeah ace. An asshole for sure. KO is followed by a huge dark cloud. He brought this shit on himself by messing with people that he shouldn’t have. Blue truth exposed him for the fraud he is so go cry somewhere else. Anyone who supports KO as a union leader is clearly blinded. Besides all the acts he committed against his members there is still the fact he allowed us to go over four years without a contract. Maybe he should forego his stipend and distribute it to the membership for his failed leadership. Then again at this juncture of his term in our office that couldn’t even help him. KO got away with a lot over the years but the buck stops here.

  15. Nodressingneeded

    I nearly fell off my chair when I read your post “Beansie”. That guy is a jerkoff. Wonder whose salad he’s tossing these days? Lmao

  16. Blue Truth ruined the job

    Yeah Ace, you keep telling yourself that. Even people that don’t like KO hate you Blue Truth dicks. Come to the meeting on Monday and we’ll see how well received you are.

  17. EH ruined job

    There is no one to blame for ruining anything but Keith, his two great friends and the leader of the pack EH. You guys really screwed up and it backfired BIG time. Blue truthers are all decent, and well-respected in the department.

  18. Blue Truth ruined the job

    Yes, those were the days. You used to be able to handle shit face to face. Now assholes who call themselves cops hide behind their keyboards and blog like pussies instead of taking care of shit the way they should. The Blue Truth blogs, runs to IAD and files lawsuits. Thanks Blue Truthers, you’ve really fucked things up.

  19. The Old Days

    Its a Shame…you are absolutely right! The job was fun back then and we looked forward to going to work…back then I would have done it for free.
    Saturday Night Early Tour in the 3rd PCT in 1988…I would kill relive those days.
    There was PRIDE for your squad! Steady tours ruined that.
    Speaking of Peruzza, I remember the time that Ray M. and Frank C. put E-Lax in Tony’s Hot Chocolate when he was on Lawrence St. Foot Post. He shit his pants and went home sick. If that happened today they would be in big trouble….it’s a shame what happened to this job. Those days are gone forever.

  20. Beansie

    On a different note, saw EH, he said
    that Det. Lt. secretary Pat McCormack
    tossed a mean salad, Pat enjoyed the taste
    so much that he refused to use any dressing.
    That my friend is a true story.

  21. hellfire

    no doubt Yonkers police defender is Barry who is a well educated guy. What does to PBA have? You have a guy who barely made it through high school, and is still carrying around an old contract in his back pocket, that he said, ” won’t be looked at until 2015, or more”. One has to wonder why the snake oil salesman stood quiet. Well lets see.
    A) got his sister a $ 64,400 job with the city.
    B) got his great friend Moran’s mother rehired after she was fired.
    Now, lets see what he did for the membership.
    A) got all the personnel in the fourth in the middle of a CLS ISSUE.
    B) no contract, but will tell you that he needs two more years to help his two great friends, oops, I meant members.
    C) did not bring back any of the units he gave up to his friend Hartnett.
    D) continues to verbal attack retired and current YPD members.
    E) sent his two supervisors friends to conduct internal investigations against his own PBA members.
    This heavy weight liar did so much damage to this association, that 99.9 percent of the CLS , and PBA say, ” he has to go”
    Besides him and his two friends committed official conduct and need to be held accountable. Basically, Keith Olson, and his two friends are what they say, purebred genuine street ” rats “.

  22. It's a shame

    I know your kidding about the Peruzza thing but thats when the job was FUN and men were men no one EVER looked to hurt anyone !!!!We all made fun of eachother and it was all good…….

  23. Yonkers Police defender is a FIREFIGHTER ?????

    I listened to Local 628 President Barry McGoey on today’s edition of Hezi’s radio program. He not only stood up for the firefighters but also the YPD and 456. Why isn’t the PBA out there defending the YPD and demanding that we get a contract? Good job by McGoey. I only wish we had someone like him leading the PBA.

  24. Messier

    LayinLow, I will STAY RETIRED……..the pension fairy delivers my check once a month ……..yeaaaaaaa buddy……..stop worrying about me and start focusing on what has happened to the job……..The shenanigans need to stop……..You taking jabs at my family…..maybe? you are infatuated with me……LayinLow takes it up the a** do da do da……ROTFLMAO…….to everyone even LayinLow………stay safe and as always…….stay thirsty my friends!

  25. step up already

    Somebody really needs to step up and deal with the many concerns of the citizens regarding this deplorable PBA president. Enough is enough as the run away command has to be stopped.

  26. KO cooties

    Cooties you are the only horrific, moron out there. You Mr. Cooties/Keith need help. Do you realize what people are thinking when they think of Bin Laden? Do you have no sense at all? You continue to sink yourself deeper with every word that comes out of your trash mouth. Another really bad move on your part you just keep fueling the fire with your derogatory, biased remarks.

  27. Cooties

    The worst thing you can be called on the YPD right now is a “Ray Guy.” I’d rather be affiliated with Osama bin Laden than that 14B. He’s like a stick with a piece of dog shit on the end of it. You just want to run from it.

  28. Theendisnear

    Hey DOJ, I’m on your side. I meant haters as in these individuals “ratpack” are attacking decent hard working cops because they are being exposed. These guys are wearing cookie jars for hands and have nerve to try and drag others down. What a disgrace. Take you medice like men and stop crying already. Everyone is tired of you assholes.

  29. 300Quarropas

    The Feds know about it Im sure the lawyers have conversations with them about the officers involved,guess they are just watching to see what the city does about it?????

  30. DOJ

    Haters, you are so right the end is near for corrupt police officials that prey on their own. That’s misconduct….is that not hate?

  31. LayinLow

    Messier, do us all a favor, STAY RETIRED!!! Good God, man, don’t you have anything to do? Pay attention to more pressing matters at home, maybe?

  32. yourright

    You are so right, Keith Olson and his two fink friends need to go. As to Olson’s small following, you need to ask your self, am I better off now since he became PBA President, and I think most of you know the answer. About $150,000 of your union dues goes to a legal team that is waiting in the bull pen for a federal case. Since Olson took over his office has been plagued with missing fund raiser money, unpaid taxes, impeding IAD investigations, setting up political adversaries, filing false reports, ect… The time is past due for a criminal investigation..

  33. Stoptheblame

    Hey fellows, this is not about the City Officials, or the Mayor and his family. This about three corrupt police officials that everyone in the county knows committed Official Misconduct. The need for the City to step in and hold them accountable. If the city does not, we are sure that an outside agency is gearing up for the task. I am sure that there are plenty of witnesses, internal memos, emails, and letters that warrant a wider investigation. Suppressing the actions of these three individuals, have only embolden them, and made them more corrupt. These are the facts.

  34. believe it or not

    gerard plays both sides,he is like the French flag he waves at you depending where the wind is blowing….lol ………..

  35. Messier

    Not a great start to the season for the Rangers…..I need them to win there next game and Big Blue to get their 1st win……Yankees season over…..Giants 0-4 and the Rangers come out flat in their 1st game…..lets stop the shenanigans and start playing…….Go Blue!…….be safe!………and as always………stay thirsty my friends!

  36. action taken

    The mayor has taken action- who do you think is pushing this crew to run. Just a coincidence his brother is on the opposing slate.

  37. B-52

    all the captain was trying to do was have a few beers celebrating how he manipulated his transfer, by begging elected officials and community members to help me stay here………….

  38. wellwhocares

    Its not about the alcohol, its a about what these three individuals did to members of their own department. One can remember when the same three were conducting their own investigations against our own, and calling everyone a liar. Well ladies and gents, does the City let a Captain and his friends get away with official misconduct against them and us. Its the fact that these dirt bags have conspired together and set people up. Now you have blinded men taking the hit for a Captain, who was helped by Olson, while they impeded an official investigation. That my friend is Official Misconduct.

  39. RelaxGuys

    I truly believe that with all that has been going on the mayor will take the right action and punish those that have it coming, he knows there is going to be a lawsuit filed any day now so he has to protect the city from further liability knowing that the administration has prior knowledge of the crimes committed by those mentioned. Do the right thing mayor and make the moves that are necessary …….

  40. theverdict

    The fact that these individuals had the audacity to attempt to manipulate the internal system of the police department is official misconduct, and a complete independent investigation is warranted against the actions of the PBA President, the Fourth Precinct Captain, and a Detective Sergeant. Their actions have raise some real legal questions as to their credibility as police personnel. If you are able to lie to the police department, as well as the public officials who entrusted you than what you have is official misconduct.

  41. timetogo

    Yesterday the joker was spotted in the guy who seems to be the biggest rat around. One has to wonder why the door was closed. Well here are some ideas of what was discussed.
    Probably Olson was telling him to stick to his lies, and screw everyone else in the precinct.
    Do I face Official Misconduct for impeding the investigation, and Olson telling his trustee how to misled the police personnel.
    Should we misled the Mayor, and lie to community leaders again. If a Captain is allow to get away with lying to the department, then how can he be objective to the community.
    Time for the City Politicians to put these guy away. This is clearly misconduct on Olson, and Mueller.

  42. Mingy

    Mr PBA President,
    I promise that I will be attending the October PBA meeting. I will probably be late but youse better wait to talk because I want to be there to give support to you. I will stand up again and clap for you.
    Your faithful supporter,
    Mingy

  43. believe it or not

    I really think that city hall will take the right action to correct and fix the criminal wrong doings of those involved especially John “The bartender” mueller aka runaway command………..

  44. foolishthought

    olson , moran, Mueller. ” small minds think alike” the blue truth stories, is confirmed and filed within the PD. Everyone that wears a uniform, represents the blue truth articles. no more stealing from members, no more premeditated unauthorized investigations against members of the PBA, and CLSA,
    NO MORE OF TELLING ON MEMBERS, no more doing unauthorized searches of members work places, no more taking and copying personnel files, and much more to be displayed. the Quinn law firm which is the PBA members firm, not Olson’s wouldn’t help you against the Federal law suits to come. the city must act to remove you and your cronies.

  45. FOOLS

    The CLSA is going to take a nice raise and for go the retro…..because the city used the scare tactic of “well if you go to arbitration and win, getting a raise with retro the city will go bankrupt and we may have to lay off and demote” so of course they will pass it like a bunch of suckers always folding when threatened.

  46. Serpico

    it is clear based on all facts available, and witnesses statements that the administration is clearly protecting the PBA leader and his cronies, just only gives the lawyers more steam when city gets served by a federal lawsuit……

  47. October PBA meeting

    The October meeting is next Monday October 7th. Blue Truth is invited to attend and you can bring the two followers who gave the PBA President a standing ovation.

  48. shameonyou

    these three buds clearly broke the law, and there needs to be an independent investigation. Laws were clearly broken within the police department. where is the ethics.

  49. moveon

    The city needs to do three simple things:
    A) Investigate Olson, Mueller, and Moran
    B) let the DD Captain handle Moran, and ship him out to Youth Division, so he can not sat in ko office while working
    C) terminate Mueller, or banish him to an empty office on Yonkers Ave, and tell him not to come up with any more good ideas. Oh, make sure you tell Mueller not to leave the building so he does not have to tell anymore lies to politicians, and community leaders…..then close his door, and hope he leaves…..what a bunch of losers

  50. timetoact

    Rumor has it that the Captain of the 4th pct, can’t bring himself to sign for the acknowledgement of receiving departmental charges. The write up should include this language.
    A) failure to supervise
    B) intentionally lying to the department, which he should be terminate
    C) impeding an official investigation, by telling others what to say
    D) actions not in line as a police officer
    E) obstructing governmental administration
    Some of these charges are criminal, and must be enforced by the city leaders. The time to act is now.
    Instead Mueller, and Olson again chose to stick it to the members before taking responsibility for their three tour beer fest. hmmm, then Mueller expected members to lie for him after he was shifting them all along. What kind of a silk worm lets the members of the YPD, and CLSA take the hits while they hide behind their failed vision.

  51. boysboys

    there ko goes again, attacking members from the cls, and pba. hmm, talk about a take home car????? the union leader who gets $4000. a month uses a car to carry his lard ass around. come on pal, go buy a car with your stipend money that you did not pay taxes on. your done in this town pal…why don’t you three sell outs move on???? no politician is going to notice.

  52. bob

    Nobody in the YPD except for commissioner and deputy chiefs need a take home car. Nothing has changed with Spano becoming mayor. So much for his big talk about doing away with them. The car factor and unlimited ot to those not deserving it would certainly pay for some of the raise deserved by the rest of the troops.

  53. jerrythechauffer

    How come blue truth won’t talk about Jerry Spano and his take home car??? or the fact that he brags to everyone about his unlimited overtime since his brother became mayor? considering the fact his sergeant is always with him feasting at any of our local hotspots while “working”!! where is the accountability in the so called Intelligence unit?? how is it ok for the mayor to give his brother unlimited overtime while crying that there is no money???

  54. FOOLS

    The CLSA is going to take a nice raise and for go the retro…..because the city used the scare tactic of “well if you go to arbitration and win, getting a raise with retro the city will go bankrupt and we may have to lay off and demote” so of course they will pass it like a bunch of suckers always folding when threatened.

  55. falsereporting

    Olson recently denied that his captain friend was in any kind of ” drinking party”, Oh, sorry I meant to say, trouble. Freudian slip. He said it was all lies. Now we are learning that charges are imminent. Who is the liar? huh

  56. callforaction

    The City of Yonkers most take a long hard look at what this article points out. The Yonkers PBA President has dirt on his hands, and 99.9 percent of the police department know that it is true. The city must commence an immediate investigation into the dealing of Keith Olson, and his cohorts. If they cannot, then it is incumbent of the City to refer to an independent agencies. These are not citizens making the complaints, they are law enforcement personnel.

  57. stepdownalready

    obviously these three are not real men or leaders. they are truly despicable low lives that chose to target, cheat, and lie…

  58. Diaryofawimp

    Just man up and sign your write up. The guy you rats wrote up twice signed and acknowledged the write ups. It’s not an admission of guilt. Not signing surely means you have something to hide. It’s all true. Isn’t it? What a pathetic soul. You have no honor and shall go no further on your watch. Put your papers in and regain your honor.

    Hey, was wondering when that little trouble making Hispanic cop that grabbed my wife’s ass was gonna come by the tea house to pick up his Pom poms. Heard he will need them for his October PBA meeting. How is your back hand spring coming along? Heard you were practicing for your bodyguard Keith. If you don’t wanna come by to pick them up we will leave them under your favorite table. We will see you again real soon.

  60. October PBA meeting

    RS and HC posting lies on the Tribune
    COWARDLY!
    Coming to the September meeting and RS and HC say nothing
    HILARIOUS!
    Watching RS and HC giving the PBA President a standing ovation at the September PBA meeting
    PRICELESS!

    time for the official investigation to begin against olson, moran, and the joker- Mueller. full audit of pba needed immediately.

  62. liarliar

    good decent men and woman are being subjected to an internal investigation because a cry baby captain chose to lie to investigators, and a pba leader instructed a trustee to misled the troops, instructing them to say they did not see anything. unfortunately there is pictures of this three tour party with Mueller laughing at the city leaders for saving him, and lying about other captains. this guy is so unstable, no wonder they call him the “joker” all in all no one should take the hit other than a failed leader that has condone this erratic precinct behavior. he should have been relieved of his duties. what you have there is an out of control command that has shown that they have lied to the department. if they lied to the department, then what will the commander do to the citizens. horrifying right. hezi thank god you exposed them….

  63. yonkerstaxpayer

    if these allegations are true, which seem to be confirm with the claims of department emails, letters, and complaints.as a citizen an independent investigation is necessary now. I cannot believe that this had to be uncovered by the tribune, and this is going on within the PBA. That leader should immediately be suspended from his duties.

  64. williebully

    the article is a result of turning a blind eye to a union thug leader, who most people in the department knew was out of control with Moran, and that wimp captain of the 4th pct.
    when you let a bully slap you once, tomorrow they will come back and slap you three or four more times, and eventually those acts go unreported for fear of retribution. these cast of characters should have known better before they started to target certain members of the department with their illegal methods. YPD members are sick of Olson, and what he has brought them. like the article states, an independent investigation is warranted now.

  65. thesearethefacts

    unfortunately these three men did what was pointed out in the article and more. the fat cat talks about an October meeting, but did not bring up one item from any of the article at the last meeting. I was there, and heard him tell our members that we will not see any type of money raise until 2015. Then his current board, and frank f. the bathroom cleaner had the nerve to stand and clap….imagine that clapping for a guy that goes after his own, and more…losers

  66. ratface

    if the article was not enough for you readers, the Yonkers PBA President decided to attack members wives. Now does anybody really believe that Olson and his band of pirates are clean? hmmmmmmm

  67. screamingeagles

    the wheels of justice are slow, but eventually they will turn, and when they do, JUSTICE will be sprayed on the three rodents.

  68. shameonyou

    the rats are cornered, so what do they do? they attack members and their wives. Olson is from the sewer he crawl out of. it is very clear that these undesirable thugs have no class. hey rat face, when you see the bosses tomorrow, will you be lobbying for one of your members? How far will they get? step down, and go drive a cheese truck with your two lying ass wipes. then all three of you can tell a better lie to each other. bunch of bottom feeders.

  69. cleanitupalready

    what the members need is a forensic audit. Other surrounding PBA unions have more money in their association then the ypd, and they are half the size. one has to wonder why. 120,000 a year with no return……for what just in case your a rogue like them… the three amigos are going to need it when the DOJ comes for them……

  70. StallinandHitler

    The pain will continue, till affirmative action is taken, if not by the administration that seems not to care, than by other legal remedies ……………

  71. closingbell

    when you have rats in your kitchen, you must set the cheese. soon the investigators will be here, and look for the answers that fat cat and his nips can’t answer. all they have to do is ask 99.5 of the job, and they will have the answers. the time is now. come and get it.

  72. thejoker

    I am the greatest liar in the world. Oh, I meant to say leader. I guess fat rats ass is rubbing off. OH PBA leader, what should I do? Everyone around me is taking a hit. Oh HEAVY O, can you tell me what to say, or write….I am such a wimp….,.ba, ha, ha,

  73. swiftresponse

    it is clear that the PBA president has not learned anything. his attacks against cops wives does not surprise anyone. then again his brother in law does not have any rules and dates them . just a bunch of rodents.

  74. whatashame

    can’t believe these three so called police officers did this to their own members. need state attorney general, that what is needed.

  75. ithurts

    olson needs to step down, and Mueller needs to man up and take responsibility for his three tour beer fest. a leader is suppose to protect his men, not sell them out. Just like what they say, lie and deny.

  76. Serpico

    Blue Truth part 6 will be out around first week of November, that one will be special election edition into what the city administration is doing about these rogue cops…….cant wait…………

  77. Thefinalcountdown

    The funny thing is even Hezi knows what you’re all about. Your days are numbered. The countdown began about 22 months ago. Enjoy while you can and keep the shredders going day and night. That’s the best advise I can give you right now.

  78. Crooksrus

    The thief stealing from our union has nothing to do with ruining our job and PBA? Get a life loser. Go take an OD on cheese you rodent.

  79. October PBA meeting

    The people posting all of these lies are ruining the job. Hiding behind a computer is a cowardly act.
    Strength in unity!

  80. Herecametheboom

    Someone done gone and pissed off Hezi. And what the hell is with the wife bashing? Are you afraid of Mrs. I? Looks like you know how to spell the spot she hangs at, so why not approach her and tell her how you really feel? Of course not you cowardly bastard. Keep calling other people cowards while you hide behind your keyboard. You’re probably the type of guy that goes home and smacks the old lady around, probably practices elder abuse and kicks your dog in the nuts. You’re a fucking disgrace, just end your useless being already. Jump! Don’t worry, nobody will stop you.

  81. Retired 3PCT

    Hezi,
    Don’t you think that this is played out by now?
    Don’t you have anything else to report on besides an internal Yonkers PD issue?
    You are embarrassing yourself now.
    FWIW, I like both Keith and Ray so I have no ax to grind here.

  82. DumbGuy

    what does the last post have to do with the ongoing expose of a pba leader gone bad?????
    I suggest you keep the chiefs wife out of this.

  83. LaLanterna@gmail.com

    Listen, everybody especially the Spano family are sick and tired of Letty I. and her prying into the YPD’s business. She is a phony, exploitive woman who constantly talks shit about them behind their backs. This article makes no sense whatsoever. I almost feel bad for Frank but he has no control over her and she is a sunken ship that’s taking him with her. She has to stop bad mouthing Mike and Nick and just crawl under a rock somewhere and go away.

  84. Here it comes!!!

    Hezi great reporting as usual,the mayor needs to take action ASAP!!!he is definately protecting keith and his clan.It maybe also that nick maybe protecting john “the joker” even though Johns parents where in a commercial supoorting John murtagh when he ran against mike spano,Imagin that any one that screws over a spano or works against them they protect???Poor commissioner i feel bad for him i know he would take swift action if it was in his hands!!!! please mike save your self from un wanted outside investigations and clean up your mess!!!!
