Turtleboy Investigates

Former Boston Cop Who Attacked A Woman And Her 15 Year Old Son In Road Rage Incident And Is Now Pressing Charges Against Them Also Was Selling His Police Badge On Facebook


It doesn’t get much scummier than a retired Boston cop pressing charges on his own (after the Brookline Police pressed charges against him) against a woman and her 15 year old son, who he assaulted during a road rage incident. Oh, and he’s also selling his BPD badge online, and has had multiple IA investigations conducted against him while he was working. Read about it on TB Daily News by clicking here

    Cataldo has a Court date in Brookline District Court on August 20th at 9am. The press from the the Globe, Herald, Wicked Local, and all others ought to gather en masse that day to see what has become an outrage of justice. He has 2 victims who have been forced to get theair own lawyers because Cataldo filed charges against them. This is not right. I knew a woman who was a civilian employee in Area A1 who says this guy has always been a malcontented miserable jerk.

    I grew up in the same neighborhood as this clown. He was a few years older but he has always been a jerk. I noticed he took most of his Facebook page down, but his wife still has his photos posted on her page
    Cyndi Cataldo

    I wonder how this guy would feel if some cop did to his wife and daughter what he did to the mother and son in Brookline? Absolutely Disgusting Behavior

    There is at least one sickening Troll posting many times with different names and voting up or down many times. That individual is truly SICK!

      Been searching this thread trying to identify this so called troll. Is the person whom you believe is using aliases posting in favor or against this Police Officer?

      I am unable to find the pattern, and I consider myself expert at blowing these types out of the water.

        July 7, 2019 at 3:01 pm

        CTFO–I have no idea if you are for real, but I will bite. How you missed the obvious is sort of questionable.

        You can start with “the ghost of Gendusa” with 38 up votes. How is that possible? My comment below that with 39 Down votes. Again, how is that possible?

        Some other EASY Names with Easy Patterns:

        “You aids infected sodomite”
        “Larry is Irked”
        “Larry is fat and stupid”

        That’s just a few. Your inability to see these and the pattern that follows is interesting to say the least.

        • Gtfo
          July 7, 2019 at 3:25 pm

          Wel actually, I am for real. I was not paying that much attention to detail with regards to the thumbs up thumbs down votes. I was looking for a pattern with the comments themselves to establish the possibility of the same person using multiple names. Based on the comments I read, I could not find any pattern, but you do in fact make a great point as well as observation.

          For what it’s worth to you, I share your opinions regarding this situation. Though I come from a large family of Law Enforcement officers, and support and respect their challenges, what this guy did is just plain wrong. Speaking of sickening, the idea of him trying to turn this around on his victims is beyond reproach. Just the fact that he left his car, before even the altercation started, places him in the wrong. I wonder what he would have done as an officer if he was handling a similar situation? The guy sounds like real bad news. Turtleboy’s otiginal blog references all the times he was investigated by Internal Affairs.

          • LARRY
            July 7, 2019 at 6:07 pm

            GFTO–Thanks for your reply. Years ago I was on another site where one individual used a lot of names each and every day. Guess he had a bit of time on his hands and he liked to troll the site members. We did not understand what he was doing for years. Even after some of us figured it out, some members refused to believe us. Eventually the Troll admitted what he had done.

            The vast, vast majority of police officers are decent guys trying to do a difficult task. Unfortunately there are usually a few bad actors in any large group that taint the good work of all the good guys. That is SAD!

            Thanks for your interest and Good Luck!

    The quote at the bottom of this post was taken from the CBS News report on this story. CAN YOU &$9@& BELIEVE THIS ? The video substantiates the charges against Priscilla Rodas? Who the hell is this Norfolk County DA Spokesperson? I am amazed they were going to dismiss the charges if he accepted the CWF. This guy is clearly mentally unstable. Take a look at the video. Does anyone here agree that his charges against the woman and/or her son were substantiated? The Brookline Police certainly did not see it that way based on the video from the MBTA Bus Security Video.
    That same article mentions he was “suspended” from his job as a security officer at Mass College of Pharmacy. That article was written before the video was released. I wonder if they have since terminated him.
    Follow the flow of events closely my friends. This guy either has some connections at the Brookline District Court, or has some connection to Mike Morrisey and the Norfolk DA’s office.

    “A spokesperson for the Norfolk District Attorney tells WBZ the video substantiates the charges against Priscilla Rodas. She now has a defense attorney.”

    Does anyone happen to know when he retire from the Boston Police? The MILLION DOLLAR Question I have is would this behavior have gotten him fired? Or would they come up with some “rational” excuse for a grown man beating up a 15 year old kid and his mother?

    Just in. From some web site. One of bunch of web sites reporting the same thing.
    Banned state wide.
    Cops: “No one escapes the Spanish Inquisition!!”

    New York woman in handcuffs, $610000 to woman forced to give birth in handcuffs.

    A woman who was shackled and handcuffed by police minutes before giving birth was “terrified for herself and her baby,” according to a lawsuit against the city of New York.

    The city has agreed to pay a $610,000 settlement to the woman, who was 40 weeks pregnant at the time of her arrest in February 2018.

    Shackling pregnant prisoners during labor has been banned in New York State since 2009. In 2015, this law was expanded to all pregnant women and new mothers.

    The woman, who was involved in a child custody dispute, was detained in a Bronx jail after allegedly breaching an order of protection, according to CNN. The misdemeanor charge was linked to a five-month old incident with her former partner, The New York Daily News reported.

        Based on a CBS web article, he was offered a “Continued Without a Finding” deal but refused it. Given what you see in the video, it’s alarming to think his lawyer allowed that refusal, unless they have something up their sleeve. Something like using their political connections to get these charges dropped outright. I do hope this case is closely watched. Something is wrong in Denmark.

      Diogenes of Sinope (c. 404-323 BCE) was a Greek Cynic philosopher best known for holding a lantern (or candle) to the faces of the citizens of Athens claiming he was searching for an honest man.

      The same could be said for an honest cop. You rarely hear about the years worth of fuckups until the cop is out. That tells me the good ones ain’t so good. Most of the time when one fucks up his co-workers say “I dinna see nuffin”.

          The entire situation is disturbing and hopefully the assistant district attorney assigned to the case doesn’t take a dive and just throw the case.

            The St. Louis County Missouri SWAT team broke into a womans home and killed her dog over a raid because she didn’t pay her gas bill. They had a search order to do a property inspection.
            They were supposed to set up a meeting when someone would be there. In their eyes because it wasn’t done in a blink of an eye they sent the SWAT team in. Not a lot different than some court house cop jock sniffer making it easy for the guy to press charges.

            The county was just ordered to pay her $750,000.00

            The cops don’t care, it’s not going to come out of their pocket. It’s a regular thing there, send the jackboots in for MAYBE a code violation.

            Of course, during the trial, the cops say the dog attacked them. Forensic evidence showed that was impossible as the dog was shot in the side and back.

        These are criminal charges against the mother and son. The State will prosecute it and there will not be anyone paying her “fees” if she is found innocent. Even if found innocent she will most likely have to pay a mandatory court fee of some type in addition to paying her attorney.

        You are thinking of civil court under some circumstances.

        The mother should reciprocate by petitioning a clerk magistrate to pursue further charges against the retread Officer. Sexual Assault/attempted rape on herself (don’t tell me he didn’t contact her breasts at some point), Attempted Kidnapping, Abuse of a Minor, Careless and Reckless driving, Criminal Mischief for attempting to damage her vehicle and a bus… etc etc
