    The WINY Radio Facebook page has been a great source of material for Turtleboy. They cover much of eastern Connecticut and publicly shame ratchets by putting their mugshots and crimes on their FB page. Just yesterday we blogged about this story involving an EAST Putnam (not regular Putnam) firefighter who was involved in a high speed chase with the police, which ended up resulting in a cop car crashing into a tree.

    Basically they do it because they know that muffs like this are gold mines. Mugshots like that will draw people to their page, garner likes and comments, and grow their following. Smart business move.

    But apparently this snowflake doesn’t care for it:

    Andy Richardson is a “reporter” for WINY Radio:


    And by “reporter” we mean, he copies and pastes press releases from the Connecticut State Police Troop D’s Facebook page, and posts them onto WINY Radio’s page. He’s also a walking cultural appropriation:


    Swedish corn rows? Big no-no Andy.

    Let’s check out his complaint about Turtleboy again:

    Screen Shot 2017-03-27 at 10.30.24 AM

    Complaint 1: Turtleboy “uses excerpts of our material to demonize and ostracize people in the most cruel ways.”

    Newsflash – you are doing the exact same thing. You could put any press releases you want on your Facebook page, but you purposely choose the most outstanding ratchet mugshots you can find. Your intent is clearly to demonize these nudniks because you know, just like Turtleboy knows, that everyone enjoys coming together to laugh at these hood bunnies.

    Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 1.20.12 PM

    Complaint 2: “At least we’re doing it in a professional, non-biased way which informs the public.”

    Yea, because when you copy and past something from the CT State Police page, the first word that comes to mind is “professional.” And if this face doesn’t scream “I’m a professional”


    Then I don’t know what does.

    Complaint 3: “Turtleboy is pure sleaze and use our material to get there.”

    So let me get this straight. We “use” the material YOU post, but when we do it it’s sleazy, and when you do it it’s “reporting the news.” Yea, that makes TONS of sense. And also, please, tell me more about how reporting things you copy and pasted from the CT State Police makes it “your” material.

    Complaint 4: “I don’t write stuff just for it to be used to hurt people.”

    Actually, that’s exactly what you do. But OK. I guess these posts are supposed to make ratchets feel……..better about themselves? Who knew?

    Anyway, DJ extraordinaire Ron Carson doesn’t seem to be pleased about the irate phone calls he’s getting from listeners because Turtleboy is using WINY’s public Facebook posts in our blogs:

    Screen Shot 2017-03-27 at 10.55.54 AM

    Knowing that John, Kerri, Andy, and Ron are getting together in a board meeting to discuss what to do about this “Turtleboy problem” is the best way to start off a Monday.

    In the comments Andy Richardson brainstormed ways to take down Turtleboy, including a cease and desist letter:

    Screen Shot 2017-03-27 at 10.35.20 AM

    Because we don’t get cease and desist letters every other day. LOL. Let me give all the whiners a piece of advice out there – when lawyers write a cease and desist to Turtleboy on your behalf, they’re just running up the bill on you. A cease and desist letter from a lawyer is nothing more than a recommendation. If we ignore them (which we do 90% of the time), then it’s up to you to pony up thousands of dollars for an imaginary Internet lawsuit. The lawyers know you’re not gonna do that, but they happily charge you a couple hundred bucks for the cease and desist letter anyway.

    So there you have it Andy. You said you wanted Turtleboy to read your rant, and now we have. We look forward to using your stories in the future. Keep the ratchet updates coming, because we LOVE your page.


    We urge you to support the Turtleboy Sponsors by doing business with them. Without them none of this is possible. Click on any of them to check out their sites or Facebook pages.

      Nothing says “I suck cock” like that face! Too much man protein must get his dander up.

    2. Andy Richardson

      Look Ma, I’m a journalist. Just like Clark Kent. I’m gonna make a difference. Like Woodward and Bernstein.


      In high school Andy was voted MOST LIKELY TO SUCK YOUR DICK

    4. the repeater

      Just wondering why u show the same screen shot in your pieces 4 ,5, even 6 times per story?

    5. Turtle boy supporter

      Maybe he should brainstorm on how not to look like a Jerry Springer reject…Lmao those corn rows

    6. Troubled Nostrils

      His nostrils trouble me.

      1. me

        his face made of playdough troubles me.

    7. TurtleBiach

      Oh, Andy….

      You have no idea what can of worms you have just opened….

    8. Strata

      Andy, your not a professional …..your a “copy boy” and a disingenuous fraud as TB just pointed out. I’m laughing at you.

    9. X

      There’s lots of plagiarizing between all parties.

      1. KJDS

        It’s not plagiarizing if you give proper credit to the source, which TBS does.

      2. Helpful Hints

        How is it plagiarizing when the screenshot as well as the article credits WINY?

        You should stick to monosyllabic words when you comment.

    10. Turd Burglestein

      I don’t care for the look of this young man but I can imagine that nose buried in my ass while he is attending to my old, tired balls with his tongue. At my age an erection is as rare as a solar eclipse but a prostate massage! Yes!

    11. F Winy

      Winy is a joke. No one under 60 listens to that radio station.

    12. Turd Burglestein

      What a WINY pussy assed snowflake. He should be thanking Turtleboy for all the free publicity he’s getting when you do use his stuff. Probably triples the traffic they would normally get.

      And as far as brainstorming goes, don’t you need a brain to do that?

      1. Lillian Irizarry

        Oh no Stalin, obviously you don’t need a brain! *Wink*

    13. Cartoon vibe

      Another delusional kid, living in a parallel and self-centered universe.

    14. wabbitt

      He should have just stopped at “I don’t write.” Because copying and pasting isn’t writing.

    15. Steven Stover

      He eats corn the long way.

    16. BlackandWhite

      WTF? His hair looks like it was plowed and harrowed.

      Shit! Now I want corn on the cob.

    17. Lisa

      when I first saw his picture ? I honestly thought he was trying out for the summer Turtle boy shirt!!!! Is it just me or is he just missing a shell??

    18. Lisa flood

      when I first saw his picture ? I honestly thought he was trying out for the summer Turtle boy shirt!!!! Is it just me or is he just missing a shell??

    19. I Bring Gifts of Gold

      Check his criminal record. It’s public information.

      He’s no better than the ratchets he “reports” about…

      You’re welcome.
