After the Boston Herald shamelessly tried to pass off the Trooper Leigha Genduso story as their own, the Boston Globe quickly followed suit. And just like the Herald they completely forgot to mention the fact that she was both mentioned in Turtleboy, and an admitted pot dealer, pill popper, tax evader, money launderer, and perjurer. Consequently they were also destroyed in the comments section:
Then we were CC’d on this email that a Brookline doctor sent to what appears to be half the reporters at the Globe, along with other media and politicians:
Loved it. So we replied all:
Literally an hour or two later they updated their story with the following:
It’s a start I guess. The blog is called TurtleboySports.com and it’s not linked. We emailed them back to make the final change. We shall see if they give into our demands once again. It’s kind of important because this story will get bigger, and the bigger media outlets will link to the Globe, so it’s important for the TBS Revolution for us to be linked in their story.
Feel free to contact the two authors who wrote this Globe article if you think they should link us and call us by our real name:
But they did add this to the story:
Police declined Thursday to release details on the investigation or answer questions about how someone involved in such a high-profile criminal case — investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration with help from State Police — could get hired and promoted within the agency.
State Police spokesman David Procopio said State Police “conduct rigorous background checks” on potential employees, which include lengthy written applications; oral interviews; checks of criminal, driving, and credit histories; questions about use of controlled substances; and interviews with previous employers, known acquaintances, and references.
That process “is followed for all candidates, as it was for Trooper Genduso,” Procopio said. “If during that process the department learns of any information that disqualifies the candidate for employment, the candidate will not be hired.”
So let me get this straight. This hack David Procopio says that in order to become a state trooper candidates must answer questions about use of controlled substances. Then in the very next breath he says that this process was followed for Trooper Genduso. A woman who readily admitted that she not only smoked pot every day, she sold it by the kilo and laundered the profits so the police could never find it.
Yup, that will make the public trust the Massachusetts State Police brass. Nothing to see here. Totally NOT covering anything up.
Fuck David Procopio. He’s gotta go too.
