Ansonia Man Sentenced to Prison after False Report to FBI

Avon CT Style:

All False Reports to the Police & FBI as well as DCF should be both Fined & Jail Time !
Seen too many families both in the news as well as personally known who have had to suffer through the hassle of dealing with a False Report of Abuse by an “Anonymous Caller”

Originally posted on WTNH Connecticut News:

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) – A 52 year old Ansonia man, Edward Minerly, was sentenced today in a Hartford courtroom to eight months in prison for making a false report to the FBI of police brutality.

Court documents show on May 18, 2013, Minerly was arrested by the Derby Police Department on an outstanding warrant for violating probation.
On May 31, 2013, Minerly called the New Haven FBI claiming Derby Police officers, taunted him, tipped him backwards out of his wheelchair and kicked him in the head, arms and upper body.

Minerly pleaded guilty on November 18, 2014, admitting that he made up the story he told the FBI about physical abuse by the Derby Police officers.

FBI Acting Special Agent in Charge Kevin James Kline said “We will seek prosecution of anyone who deliberately provides false information that diverts agents and resources from other important matters.”

Prepping, Politics & Patriots – You Need to Get Active

What does Politics & Patriotism & Prepping have to do with YOU & Why do you need to pay attention to any of it?

To some the connection is quite clear to others not so much.

I would hope that you are in fact registered to vote & actually do so every campaign & town budget.
Failure to vote means that you are part of the problem that you might be complaining about – especially at the local level where your vote counts the most.

Do you know who your state level elected officials are?
When was the last time you paid attention to what they were in fact planning to pass in the way of laws?
Have you spoken up to your elected officials at the state level by either writing a letter or sending an email or making a phone call?
When was the last time that you actually went up to the state capitol to voice your opinion at a state hearing on a bill?

We have the most voice at the local level.
You may live in a state that has a state capitol that is far away but your town hall is in your town & you should at least get up there a few times a year.

The laws that your elected officials affects your lives on all levels – you should at least know what is going on in your town, state level government levels.
We may not have a voice at the federal level other than to vote every 6 years for a Senator & every 4 for President but it is quite different at the State & Local levels.

You need to speak up to your town & state level elected officials & that is where change can & will be made

Pay attention because what your elected officials are doing raises your taxes & changes laws that may affect your Constitutional Rights or even your ability to grow your own food
If you prep but keep your head in the sand & keep silent are you any better than the “sheeple” so often made fun of in the professional prepping websites & blogs?

This year the blogging got put to the wayside as I got up off my duff & ran for office
That was quite an “interesting” experience to say the least
What are YOU going to do in 2015 to make Your Life & Our Country a Better Place?

The 2014 election cycle seems to have already started…

Not Officially announced yet but Tom Foley put forward an ad in NY state

Wikipedia already has a page up that lists only the 3 biggest party approved names as running

A story & poll has been by done by one of the local main stream media reporters

the results were interesting to see

Although last on the poll list the candidate with the most votes in the poll is Joe Visconti

Joe Visconti is not well known across the entire state so that he has the CT GOP approval yet

But the polling suggests that the leadership at the CT GOP might more seriously consider giving Joe Visconti the support because he is doing well in the polls



Thank you for voting!
Joe Visconti 45.8% (464 votes)

Tom Foley 22.61% (229 votes)

Craziness in CT 2013

Way too much has been happening since my last post

Some great some not good at all but many things that are Life Changing

Life here in CT has been changing quite quickly

Both on a personal level as well as on a wider state & national part of the bigger “We the People” level with all that is going on

When I had put this post into drafts it was back in March the 3rd things were just starting to get busy in a new way in the state – people who weren’t politically active were suddenly getting ACTIVE going up to the State Capitol Building to Rally & Talk to their elected officials & testify in front of tv cameras their thoughts

Local elections have a new thing going on – non-career politicians running for town councils around the state as regular working people start taking back their towns from the career politicians who have been ignoring what is in the best interest of the people while enriching their personal & business friends as well as lining their own pockets

It’s been a crazy year in CT, wondering what else is going to happen with the elections next month
Will it be a light turnout due to voter apathy or will Patriots make it to the polls?
