Hey fam – if you’d like to support Turtleboy and what we do here, feel free to hit the donate button at the top. We basically have to run this site like a Bernie Sanders campaign now since we’ve been blacklisted by Google and Facebook, due to the fact that rabid SJWs keep reporting our posts. Getting blacklisted by Google is a death sentence for most websites, since it’s much harder to monetize. And we all know the damage Facebook has done. We’re never going to stop fighting for free speech, but in the meantime the best way for turtle riders to fight back is to donate to the cause. Without you people none of this is possible. We love you all.
The following email was sent from Mass State Police spokesman David Procopio last week, listing the two troopers responsible for conducting pot dealer Leigha Genduso’s background search:
However, after we blogged about this Procopio followed this up with an email telling us that his first email was wrong:
Please note that the information previously released by the Massachusetts State Police regarding the background check for Leigha Genduso’s hiring as a dispatcher was incorrect. During that time period in question, dispatcher candidates underwent modified background checks that were not conducted by a trooper. Rather, references and employment history listed by the candidate were checked by civilian supervisors in the dispatch center. Once that process was completed, whatever trooper working the desk at the MSP Fusion Center that day would be asked by the MSP personnel department to perform a criminal record check on the candidate (Troopers assigned to the Fusion Center worked desk duty on a rotation). In the Genduso case, Trooper Ferrazzani was working the desk at the Fusion Center on the day that a criminal record check on Genduso was requested, and thus he performed that inquiry. Genduso was found to have no criminal record (as Genduso was not charged in the drug case involving her former boyfriend). Any trooper who was on the desk that day would have been asked to perform the same records check and received the same results. Therefore it is incorrect to say that Trooper Ferrazzani conducted the background check for the dispatch position as we currently define the term “background check.” He did not; nor did any other trooper. He simply fulfilled an administrative request and had no prior or further involvement. To reiterate, the system in place at that time held that civilian supervisors in the dispatch center performed checks on dispatch candidates’ references and past employers. As the Department initially provided incorrect information, we now wish to correct this information for the record.
This is insane. How shady can they be? Let me sum that email up:
Here are the troopers who did the background checks. Just kidding, it was actually unnamed ‘civilian supervisors’ at the dispatch center. We put civilians in charge of doing background checks on people we hire. Then we play a game of spin the trooper and see who’s working at the Fusion Center that day, and they get stuck with doing the criminal background search. And since Genduso was never actually charged with a crime, Trooper Ferrazzini’s search came back clean. And the fact that they both lived in North Reading was a huge coincidence. He didn’t do the ‘background check,’ he just did the criminal record check. That’s way better. And even though the MSP were actively investigating her role in this interstate drug dealing ring, he somehow missed this during this criminal record check because she was never charged with a crime.”
You can draw 2 possible conclusions from this:
- The MSP, which is the most respected law enforcement agency in the state, is a huge JOKE because they don’t do any real background research into the people they hire, and leave it up to civilians at the call center.
- Procopio was told by his bosses to feed us this lie, assuming we’d be stupid enough to believe it.
If the correct answer is #1 then it means the MSP have the same hiring standards as McDonald’s.
I’ll take what’s behind door #2.
Hey David, if you’re serious about clearing this up, please do the following:
- Let the public know exactly what a background check entails, who the “civilian” was who did the check (since she seems to have so many friends working as dispatchers), and the written background check procedures at that time to add credibility to your email.
- Leigha Genduso admitted on Masscops.com that she had been applying several times, starting in 2006, to be a dispatcher. She was not hired until 2008, AFTER she provided US Attorney Peter Levitt with testimony against Sean Bucci that led to his conviction. Let us know why she was not hired until after she gave this testimony. Also let us know if she was hired in 2008 by using her 2006 background check, which would be completely incompetent, since a new background search should’ve been conducted in 2008.
- Provide the names of all people involved in background searches for Genduso, as well as their superiors who then signed off on the searches.
- Genduso’s civilian supervisor, who spoke glowingly of her and gave her a letter of recommendation, died several years ago. Is the MSP now blaming this on him because he is not alive to defend himself? If so, is it a conspiracy that you and others above you hatched after we exposed your initial email last week?
- You are a very experienced media relations director, having held the job for quite sometime. How could you make such a glaring mistake about who conducted the background search? And why did you only correct it after the negative publicity you received?
It can’t be understated that Ferrazzini is from North Reading, and lived there during the pot bust:
It’s a small town, and thus the Genduso-Bucci pot bust was front page news:
When Leigha applied to be a state dispatcher she stated her address as 23 Marshall Street. It says right in that article that the pot bust took place where she lived at 23 Marshall Street. Do they not have Google at the MSP? Considering Ferrazzini lives in this town did that address not ring a bell? Do they really expect us to believe he did not have knowledge of this? Unreal.
Kurt Ferrazzini is now on the MSP’s anti-terrorism unit. Are we to believe that someone this incompetent is not in charge of protecting us from terrorism?
We call David Procopio the MSP’s Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The difference is that she’s a much better liar. If you guys think this is incriminating, wait till you see what we have on tap for tomorrow.
