Everyone knows that Clive McFarlane was arrested in 2004 by a Worcester Police Officer for being a drunken fool. He would not leave the bar when he was asked to leave, made a scene, and got cuffed. Ever since then he’s used his position at the Turtlegram and Gazette to shit on the Worcester Police twice a week. Oh yea, and it’s always because of race. Because losers like Clive don’t have to be responsible for their own drunken foolishness, so long as they have the race card in the front of their wallets.


Anyway, Worcester attorney Hector Pineiro, who has made a living by finding the biggest assholes in county jail with boo-boos on their heads, and using them to sue the city of Worcester, was Clive’s topic of discussion today. Since it’s cheaper for the city to settle these cases than it is to litigate them, they basically pay Hector to go away. This was a topic of discussion on Turtleboy Tuesday’s this morning. Here’s the podcast if you missed it.

Hector’s latest client blew up in his face this week. Jerome Smith is serving 11-13 years in Bridgewater for being a lifelong felon with a million and one gun charges. Hector alleged that this angel was minding his own business when the cops busted in with a fire extinguisher, beat his face to a pulp with it, and called him racial slurs while doing so. Because you get more money if there are racial slurs involved.

The problem arose when the two witnesses never showed up in court and Hector tried to enter their affidavits into evidence instead. His reasoning? They were scared of the police?


Hector got too cocky and he took it too far. Obviously a man has the right to face his accuser. And when the judge ordered federal marshals to bring in the two witnesses they admitted that they were bribed for their testimony. The judge declared a mistrial, and what was the first thing Hector did? Immediately cut ties with his client. The same client he was fighting for and believed ten minutes before he got caught with his hand in the cookie jar.

We couldn’t wait to see how red Spanky’s face was. This was like his worst nightmare. He’d either have to admit that he was wrong all along, or ignore it altogether. And since Clive is gutless, we assumed it would be the latter.

Turns out we were wrong. He doubled down instead:

Federal Judge Timothy S. Hillman rightly referred allegations of misconduct in the case to the U.S. attorney. Significantly, he didn’t dismiss the case, since the allegation of inducement doesn’t implicitly negate the merits of the underlying charges of police brutality.

Wait…what?? It doesn’t negate the merits of the charges of police brutality? Actually, that’s exactly what he does. Is Spanky hitting the bottle again?


Nevertheless, the city, which has forever turned a blind eye to allegations of brutality against Worcester police officers, used the occasion of this mistrial to suggest that such allegations are manufactured by civil rights lawyers bent on plundering taxpayer dollars. And on this point, Mr. Augustus is carrying the water for the Police Department.

Ummmm, that’s EXACTLY what he’s doing Spanky. Everyone knows that. Seriously, how angry is Clive that he got arrested in 2004 for being a dink?

Mr. Augustus appeared to have forgotten that it was just last year that a Worcester police officer was caught on tape throwing a handcuffed and shackled man to the ground and punching and kicking him in his holding cell. That case is still pending in court, but the city has already paid the victim and his lawyer $225,000. Meanwhile, Police Chief Gary Gemme has gone on record criticizing the conduct of the police officer.

Well first of all, no one has seen that tape. But nevertheless, the fact that he was arrested by the Worcester Police just proves that the cops are completely capable of policing themselves. You can’t be kicking the shit out of prisoners in holding cells, and if you do, you’ll be arrested for it and the chief will distance himself from you. Case closed.

Given Mr. Augustus’ statement, however, you have to believe that without the videotape, this man’s allegation of police misconduct would have been construed by the city as being “a cynical effort to extort settlement payments from the taxpayers of Worcester.”

No. Just no. Ed Augustus was cynical of Hector Pineiro because he tried to tarnish the careers of four decorated police officers with lies. Jerome Smith’s injuries were not consistent with what he alleged happened. The scumbag from the holding cell, who has a long and documented history of suing the police, had a better story to tell. That’s why he got a settlement.

Dozens of such cases have been brought against the city, which has paid out millions to settle a number of them. The city has never once acknowledged it has a problem, except on the rare occasion when video evidence is available.

Actually the city has acknowledged they have a problem. His name is Hector Pineiro. And we’ve paid millions of dollars to him because we allowed him to bully us for too long. Those days are long gone Spanky, much like your credibility.

Anyway, Clive’s continued employment at the Turtlegram proves that they are a click-baiting joke. There are LOTS of people we can disagree with, and we wouldn’t even mind reading their columns. But when you just say the same nonsense over and over again, and you’re doing it because you couldn’t hold your liquor and got arrested 12 years go, you just look like a complete asshole. Let me guess Clive? Your next column will have something to do with racism and/or the police? Yea, that’s all you need to know about the type of predictable, waste of space journalist and human being that Clive McFarlane is.

    A criminal is a criminal and when they get busted it is suddenly racial. I’m not saying any life lost isn’t sad. The ones that put their family and life second to protect mine, I call hero! There isn’t one office in the world that doesn’t have at least one bad apple. When faced with Drugs, guns, rape, murder, gangs, and even the innocent people trying to get am education, the go getters that ADD TO SOCIETY, the ones that work to provide for their families. … I am extremely sorry for all of the hard working Americans that even hear this crap. The way I see it, if you laugh at sitting around getting your $ from Obobo money (my money and the working people money). Why not leave America? I’m pretty sure the debt would wash out soon without you. God bless America and all of the men and women in uniform for protection and serving for my life! For America!

    If JFK were around he would have been shouted down and called a bigot.How dare he ask “what you can do for your country.” Hateful words today were the left claims everyone is a victim and hard work is a microaggression.

    The thing about people like Clive McFarlane who spew the same rhetoric over and over is that it actually makes their personal vindictive agendas seem that much more disingenuous to the point where it cannot be taken seriously any longer. Everybody on this planet or in this country knows BLM code. It stands for fuck the police and laws do not apply because of cruelty that happened over 160 years ago.

    That no one living person today had ANYTHING to fucking do with.

    So Obama is not doing shit to bridge the racial divide. So any time people of color want to stop playing this worthless game are welcomed back to an America as one. I served with people of color in the Armed Forces and I call many of my brethren soldiers of color my friends for life.

    Bottom line: Let’s just knock this shit off can we? Jesus H. Christ already.

    Typical Clive, everything is always about race.

    So by using Clive’s extreme lack of logic anc common sense, if one cop is a bum, they are all bums (Not Al Bums). So following that ignorance, every time a minority kills someone, that specific minority group are all murderers. If a Hispanic kid assaults a teach, all Hispanics assault teachers.

    You said it Clive. Not me. You wanna broad brush hundreds of thousands of cops? You got it. Just as long as we can broad brush all newspaper writers as race baiting, cop hating sell outs right? Cant have it both ways you fucking hypocrite.

    An article about Pineiro AND Clive. Wow! I will stay away from this one because I’m having a great day so far. I would hate for it to be ruined because of two men who share a bag of dicks like it’s buttered popcorn then lick each others greasy fingers for good measure.

    • Clive's not a racist, just ask him

      It was probably 4:00 – 4:30 because I caught part of it on my ride home.

      Didn’t Jordan use to be a Democrat? He’s really right-wing now.

        Actually most everyone around here was a democrat. Heck if JFK was still around with the same values as in the 60’s he would be a conservative. Even Hillary endorsed balanced budgets, same sex marriage, and tough on crime bills. The Democratic party has been taken over by the far left fringe.
        How do you know he was drunk 12 years ago? Could have been crack or coke or PCP.

    Jordan Levy roasted Clive from 3:30-4:00 on his show yesterday. It was awesome. I had just gotten home, but sat in my car for 20 minutes listening to him lambaste him for being exactly who he is. Funny thing is that he prefaced the story with him liking Clive and having drinks with him in the past. It was local radio gold. Don’t know if they have podcasts or not on WTAG or not but its worth checking out. He beat on him like a red headed stepchild.
