EHezi_Hezitorial Yonkers, NY, August 18, 2010 —  Yonkers Police Department spokesperson Det. Sgt. Patrick McCormack called Yonkers Tribune's editor Hezi Aris late this afternoon to advise of inaccuracies gleaned after his reading The Hezitorial: Using the Police for Political Purpose BY Hezi Aris published on August 17, 2010. The most egregious issue was Det. Sgt. McCormack’s contention that Captain John Mueller did not head the investigation of an incident of the alleged theft of a clipboard of petitions from the person of Joseph Dalli, a campaign worker for New York State Assembly candidate Mike Ramondelli allegedly by Julio Sofia, a campaign worker for New York State Assemblyman Mike Spano, as well as a friend of his nephew.  Det. Sgt McCormack advised that two general assignment detectives who routinely handle felonies were assigned the task of investigating the allegations, not Capt. Mueller. Det. Sgt. McCormack’s assertion regarding the detectives assigned to the case is contrary to the investigative work corroborated by the editor’s effort. Even so, the Yonkers Tribune appreciates the pertinence of giving the YPD equal access and time to refute the veracity of The Hezitorial.

The credibility of Yonkers Tribune’s sources are such that it was and remains irrefutable in the editor’s mind, albeit contrary to Det. Sgt. McCormack’s assertion.

Another concern, is that of The Hezitorial questioning whether there is proof to tie the alleged perpetrator to the grand larceny allega. The Yonkers Tribune editor was thinking of video, audio, photos, and/or eye witnesses. Det. Sgt. McCormack advises that the Westchester County District Attorney’s Yonkers Office had surmised there was probable cause and therefore continued their search for Mr Sofia.

The editor will not in good conscience, and with all due respect, question the integrity and veracity of his corroborating sources that advised of "Mueller" heading the investigation. I use the name “Mueller” without disrespect, but rather to point out that I remembered “Mueller” to be a Lieutenant, yet upon notice by Det. Sgt. McCormack, and reflection, remembered that “Mueller” is indeed a Captain. My apology to you Captain Mueller.

On the issue of two detectives rather than Captain Mueller investigating the allegation, the editor of the Yonkers Tribune accepts the YPD’s assertion but will not refute evidence to the contrary through sources he will not and did not divulge.

  1. Still think your “sources” were right? You might want to check your good conscience and the veracity of your sources, you’re still and always will be wrong on this one. You owe an apology.

  2. this really is not or should not be a political investigation…just because two candidates are
    involved..it is not alleged that they did anything
    this is an investigation into the unlawful taking
    of property from another…no political figure should
    be calling any law enforcement figure…just let the
    dd’s do their job and let the chips fall where they
    may…

  3. it was a waste of time…but rest assured, captain mueller wouldnt touch this political hot potato. He is too worried about hurting his carreer to man up and do the right thing and handle a political investigation. Isn’t that what SIU is supposed to do? He will keep himself free of controversy; doesn’t want to offend the people that first made him a detective lt….and then a captain in a detective lt’s spot….and guess what….soon to be a detective captain. Just another selfish scammer

  4. Captain Mueller would not conduct a investigation, he is a supervisor, he may have supervised it, but the detectives actually conducted the investigation and subsequent arrest.

  5. Joseph Goebbels could put a better spin on this story and he’s living in Buenos Aris.
    PS If you don’t know who Joseph Goebbels is , do a goggle search.

  6. you have it backwards
    the prima donna’s at the detectives division had better get off their ass and to work for the taxpayers instead of blowing them off by telling them they are too busy, short on manpower, and to go complain to the mayor…or Hezi may just have one more story very soon.

  7. Hezi–
    Next time you say the following and maybe (just maybe) people will look to you as the Edward R. Murrow you are valiantly attempting to be:
    “Dear Readers:
    I got the story wrong. I did not have all the facts. I will do better next time because I am trying to be a legitimate journalist. I will try to get it right, but when I want to play fast and loose with facts I call it a ‘Hezitorial’ and give myself cover. Thanks.”

  8. DON’T WORRY MR. MEULLER – THIS ONE WENT TO THE STATE POLICE AND NOT YNKERS. I HEARD THAT SPANO WENT TO THE STATE TROOPERS TODAY WITH VIDEO OF VOTERS BEING APPROACHED ASKING IF THEY WANT “LOWER TAXES” AND THE “WITNESS” AKA JOE DALLI NEVER TELLING THEM THAT THEY WERE ACTUALLY SIGNING FOR MIKE RAMONDELLI’S CUT MY TAXES. EVEN FUNNIER IS THAT THE “VOTER” WAS A SET UP AND JOE DALLI IS THE ONE IN THE VIDEO BUT HE WASN’T THE ONE WHO “WITNESSED” IT. SOUNDS A LITTLE NON COMPOS MENTIS

  9. You have once again been shown to be the amateur you are. A professional would have done a little more to verify their story. As to your “source” and their “evidence” they are obvious cowards who have an axe to grind and are using you to do their bidding.
    You can believe what you will, or should I say simply spin your tale. No problem. Just keep it up. The more more often the merrier.What makes you so interested in Yonkers, Yonkers politics, or anything Yonkers anyway? Who is the coward now? What is your name? Do you have an axe to grind? Boyo Boy oh boy.
    I’ll will await the findings, such as they are.
    Kindly,
    Hezi
