They Must Be Smoking Crack!

This is about something going on in my city. Now before you ask why should I care about what’s going on in New York’s Capital District hang in there. Even if you can’t find Schenectady on your map let alone pronounce it this is is going to hit your funny bone. (For the record it’s pronounced schuh-NECK-tah-dee)
There’s this ongoing investigation regarding a former Schenectady School District employee and if the school board knew how bad this guy was. It all boils down to what did the school board know and when did they know it?
From the Albany Times Union . . .
“The school district commissioned the report to investigate what knowledge staff and administrators had about alleged misconduct by Raucci, a former employee who is facing criminal charges of arson and terrorism for allegedly placing explosive devices at the homes and on cars of his perceived enemies.
Prosecutors allege Raucci, a former state Civil Service Employees Association (CSEA) union head and retired school manager, for decades used violence and vandalism against perceived foes who got in his way. Raucci, 61, faces a 26-count indictment, including terrorism, arson, conspiracy and weapons possession related to alleged incidents in Clifton Park, Glenville, Rotterdam, Colonie and Schodack dating back to 1993. The Niskayuna man has pleaded not guilty to the charges, but has been denied bail three times. The matter has spawned several lawsuits or people asking the court to take civil action against Raucci.”
So here they are waiting for a report about who knew what and when it comes out 90% of it is blacked out!
“SCHENECTADY – Dozens of pages are entirely blacked out in the school district report on an investigation into possible workplace misconduct by retired facilities director Steven Raucci.
The 192-page document, dated June 15 and released Thursday, dashes hopes of those who anticipated learning new information about Raucci’s interaction with senior administrators and staffers he supervised. In several instances, all but one word — “employee” — is blacked out on a page, with no context to give it meaning.”
Did they think they could get away with this?
They must be smoking crack!!!
