Taught a Lesson
When I lived and owned property in Stafford Springs, Connecticut, local police, called constables, and Troop C, Connecticut State Troopers, would often say, “Big Mouth is going to be taught a lesson.”
Well expecting anything for your tax dollars is a mistake. I was a co-founder of the Stafford Springs Crime Watch. I suggested legislation to deal with youth crime. Officer Prochaska told me to shut my mouth and told me I would be arrested and kicked out of town if I persisted on suggesting legislation to elected officials. So, in reality, a citizen can be arrested, lose his or her home, family, and job just for pursing rights that are supposedly guaranteed in the US Constitution.
My then wife [pictures, freespeech.com links no longer work], fell down the stairs with the flu waking me up. I called her an ambulance. Officer Prochaska showed up and proceeded to slam me into my house, bouncing me off my aluminum siding, saying I was resisting. He called to the firemen and ambulance crew, “See, he’s resisting.”
“Resisting what?” I said.
Prochaska then proceeded to try to goad my wife into lying and telling him what he wanted, that I had pushed her down the stairs. I didn’t, and my wife and I were getting along. Had we not, my life would have been altered from that day on. Domestic assault, resisting arrest, and even a concocted story of assaulting a police officer would have ruined my life forever, then.
My wife and I later traveled all over Europe for an extended period. We came back to Stafford. Peter Panciera, a then local powdered cocaine dealer was so high on his own product, he thought that I was an undercover police officer. So he attacked me, beat me, and bit so far into my ear that I had blood streaming down my neck, across my stomach, soaking my underwear. I dialed 911.
Police showed up and took my statement and interviewed the drug customers about their friend, whom they said they did not know, making a false statement to police. I convinced officers to tour the local bars with me the following weekend. We found my attacker. I demanded that a hepatitis and AIDS test be done on my attacker as he had bit me. Officer Prochaska “re-investigated” the case, the drug customers then suddenly remembered that I had attacked their friend and he was scared of me. A bunch of crap and only I was arrested by Prochaska 6 weeks after the incident in front of my wife. It was ok for a drug dealer to beat me and bite me, but it was not ok for me to be a victim of a beating with a bitten into ear.
I faced the maximum prosecution for breach of peace and assault 3rd for having been assaulted, getting police involved by dialing 911. Police officers then explained to me that is was stupid to dial 911 after being attacked in a downtown area if you don’t have witnesses other than yourself when an attacker has friends that will make statements together, false or not, believable or not. I beat that wrap as I had refused to get a lawyer and would have had the 911 tape played and would bring up the fact that I was bitten, and the biter was never arrested.
I wrote letters to the editor and contacted local elected officials about how police seemed to partner with prostitutes, vandals, drug dealers, and other criminals, using them as “informants” to maximize revenue collection and asset confiscation, not in aiding downtown property and business owners that desperately needed police protection and service to survive.
State Police Officers would show up and follow me around all day wherever I went. They were escorting me, to and from wherever I worked, concerning my customers as why police were shadowing me. Officers openly told me to shut up and leave Connecticut. Police were out to destroy my life, make me lose [these properties], break up my family, and make me lose my job using taxpayer dollars.

Police were openly trying to recruit criminals and others with favors to make false statements and/or to terrorize me out of Connecticut.
I was then attacked by a police informant, Brian Caldwell. Only I was arrested for resisting being beaten in my own dark driveway. Caldwell left messages on my tenants’ and my answering machines telling me and others he would kill me when I came home. He tried. I was sentenced to a year in prison, 3 years probation, by Judge Jonathan Kaplan. Troopers Amaral and Longlois committed perjury at trial saying I never tried to lodge a complaint against Caldwell.
While I was awaiting trial, Caldwell either attacked me, or tried to attack me 6 more times.
I was told by Officer Prochaska and Resident State Trooper Mulcahey that I was kicked out of Connecticut and if I didn’t leave, I would be arrested again. The pair allegedly offered Peter Coukos help in obtaining a gun permit if he threatened and terrorized my daughter and I out of Connecticut. Coukos left a message on my voicemail threatening my daughter’s life. Coukos assaulted me punching and slapping me in the back of my head, in my yard telling me, he wanted my then 14 year old daughter to perform oral sex on him. I didn’t fight back as I would be the only one arrested again. I played the tape of the threats made against me and my daughter by Coukos. Prochaska and Trooper Mulcahey told me that I would be arrested, not Coukos, if I tried to have charges pressed against Coukos.
There is no one to complain to that will investigate violations of civil rights as described above. The courts are fixed and lawyers are intimidated into acting with the official abusers and police, not their clients.
“Big Mouth” was taught a lesson. The US Constitution doesn’t apply and there is no “American Justice”.

State Police Begin New Internal Probe
By TRACY GORDON FOX | Courant Staff Writer
July 18, 2007
State police have begun an internal affairs investigation into a racially offensive video and still photograph that were e-mailed several months ago among troopers assigned to the state police forensic laboratory, including to its commander.
One e-mail shows a still photograph of a black man lying on the street surrounded by watermelon rinds and chicken bones. The headline on the e-mail read "fatal overdose?" Another e-mail had a video attachment of a tow-headed white girl with a lisp, who sat at her kitchen table in a yellow shirt and spewed hateful racial slurs with the encouragement of two adults. The subject line simply says: "Little girl with a speech problem." [more]
