The other day we wrote about Lewis Metaxas, the Human Rights Commissioner from Greenfield. He is “investigating” the Greenfield Police for arresting eight students during a fight at Greenfield High School in which a police officer and several teachers were assaulted while breaking up a fight. And since he’s the head of the “Human Rights Commission” it is his duty to turn this into a racial incident, since more than one of the students arrested was not white.

He’s also upset because the kids could now have records:

“Metaxas said two of his biggest concerns are that the eight students will now have records in court and their education has been disrupted — at least one student, he said, was given a 10-day suspension.”

“The problem I see with the 10-day suspension is the immediacy of it without due process. Apparently it was given the same day,” Metaxas said.

It’s pretty interesting that he is concerned about having a criminal record come back to bite you in the ass. Ya know, because he’s a former lawyer and criminal, according to these archives that came across our turtle shell:

The state Board of Bar Overseers has scheduled a Sept. 9 hearing on whether suspended lawyer Lewis Metaxas will be disbarred, but the hearing may not be needed. He has told The Union-News that he is considering submitting a formal resignation as a lawyer, rather than go through the hearing, in order to “get on with my life and rehabilitation.”

In February, Metaxas was sentenced to 18 months in the House of Correction on two counts of larceny from clients. Six months of the term were to be served. He was sentenced to the same term, concurrently, for uttering a false document, a charge relating to having signed the name of a judge. Metaxas had at first pleaded not guilty, then changed his pleas to guilty, saying then that it was the “first step in rehabilitation and rebuilding.

Technically, Metaxas has been a lawyer throughout his suspension and court hearings, but was barred from practice until the Board of Bar Overseers staged its own investigations and hearing. He has been out of jail a little over two months, and said yesterday that he is working on building a small property management business, and following alcohol rehabilitation programs.

Terrance Troyer, counsel for the Board of Bar Overseers, said yesterday he had not heard that Metaxas might resign from the bar. In similar circumstances, in the past, Troyer said, lawyers have resigned from the bar based on their criminal felony convictions. Troyer said that if Metaxas were to submit a resignation, or be disbarred by a hearing, he would be eligible to apply for reinstatement in

“That doesn’t mean he would be reinstated,” he said. “Only that he can apply.”

Troyer assumes that any resignation would be retroactive to 1993, when Metaxas was suspended from practice pending investigations and court action, and this would make him eligible to apply for reinstatement in 1998. He said that even if Metaxas were allowed to practice again, “it could contain restrictions, such as not being allowed to handle clients’ money, or other sanctions.”

Earlier this year, Troyer filed notice of 27 direct complaints against Metaxas from former clients.

No wonder he doesn’t want these kids to have criminal records. He knows what it’s like to break the law, serve time, and still land on your feet with a nice cushy job on the Human Rights Commission.

And if that wasn’t enough he was also featured in a book called, “Masters of Deception: The Worldwide White Collar Crime Crisis and Way to Protect Yourself“:

Getting a drunk driver a magical, nonexistent “special license” for thousands of dollars, and stealing another $15,000 grand from some chump in a paternity suit. Quality individual right there. This is who the parents of Greenfield students who assaulted a police officer and teachers are turning to in order to smear the Greenfield Police Department as racist.

Oh yea, he also headed the Human Rights Commission’s investigation/public witch hunt of Sargent Dan McCarthy, after his neighbors saw a confederate flag buried deep in his garage while they were spying on him.


Here’s my question – how does this happen? How do you get a taxpayer funded job as head of the Human Rights Commission, if you have a past history of stealing money from other human beings? Apparently he’s appointed by the Greenfield Town Council, which would actually make perfect sense, knowing what we know about Greenfield politics.

Anyway, it’s just so predictable and hilarious. All these people who don’t want cops in schools and don’t believe in personal accountability almost always end up being scumbags. Just throw Lewis Metaxas on the pile. We just wanted the good folks in Greenfield to know this stuff if they weren’t aware of it already. A convicted criminal is using taxpayer funded resources to go to bat for a bunch of kids who hit a cop, and he’s turning it into a racial incident.

Note to scumbags – Turtleboy is always watching.

    these commissioners don’t get paid

    You’re all being mislead. The HRC is not paid for their services. It is their charge to investigate all allegations of human rights violations that involve city funded undertakings. Like the public schools and the public safety departments. Here educate yourselves. and pay close attention to a particular member Penny Rickets who also serves as an at large city councilor and does have an ax to grind over EVERYTHING.

    You can be guaranteed one thing in all this. She has been on the phone to the Mayor and has chewed out individual ears and will stab Metaxas in the back if he doesn’t bend to her will and investigate this as a hate crime. She has been after his chair seat for close to a decade now. So she can use her standing with the Democrat party to make EVERYTHING about race. She is an old Mayor Forgey lackey who is pure radio active. ( a term coined by Metaxas)

    Sure Lew lands on his feet. Because he is a brilliant man, the smartest man in the room type, and he will always come out a better man by choice. You clowns have no standing when compared to Lews integrity and true grit.

    Why does Greenfield need a human rights commissioner? I’d rather see them use his pay to repave some roads.

      The human right commission of Greenfield is not a paid job.. They are all volunteer appointments.

    He’s almost as bad as the reformed prostitute that wants to get her virginity back. Come to think of it, he’s worse that that by a long way.
