- Detective Andrew Karlis, Nashua Fuckin Corrupt Cop!
Karlis has man who videotaped his corruption arrested
Michael Gannon stands outside his house on Morgan Street where he videotaped a detective who had come to his house investigating his 15-year-old son Tuesday in Nashua. Gannon said the detective was rude, and brought a surveillance tape to the Nashua Police Station to file a complaint. Instead, police arrested him, telling him he had violated New Hampshire’s eavesdropping and wiretap laws.
Apparently the corruption extends to other Nashua cops:
Trisha Lessard said she leaned toward another officer to try to read his nametag or badge number during the incident and was rebuffed.
“He said, ‘What are you looking at?’ I said, ‘I’m looking for your badge number.’ He said, ‘It’s none of your goddamned business,’ and turned away."
Note that Mr Gannon did violate New Hampshire's Law against audiotaping criminal cops to get the goods on them. Apparently the Majority of New Hampsters are filthy shitheads who want such Laws. We all know that there is a small Minority of New Hampsters who are NOT shitheads and DO want to allow Liberty for their neighbors, but they have a Democracy there and the Majority always get to put the Minority in a CAGE if they feel like it.

Kitchen Sink Raid
Updates on Hampton shitheads
Suit disputes kitchen sink
By Elizabeth Dinan
HAMPTON - When a police cruiser and three town officials arrived with
a search warrant at Barbara Burbank's Hampton home on Nov. 19, she
asked, "Is this a drug raid or are you afraid we're washing dishes?"
Empowered with the warrant to search the home Burbank shares with her
daughter and 95-year-old aunt, Myrtle Woodward, the town officials
were indeed afraid the women were washing dishes. Their warrant,
issued through Hampton District Court, authorized a search for
evidence of an illegal apartment in the women's single-family home.
"There had been gossip that I'd put a kitchen sink in," said
Burbank. "I knew what they were there for. They were searching for a
As a result of that search, during which Burbank said there was no
evidence of anything illegal, Hampton Building Inspector Kevin
Schultz filed legal action against the women for zoning violations.
The action, filed Dec. 13 in Rockingham County Superior Court, asks a
judge to order the women to demolish everything not approved by the
town, prohibit further construction, and pay the town's costs and
attorney's fees. It also asks that the town be reimbursed for time
the building department spent on the case and that the women be fined
$275 per day, for every day since Feb. 27, 2003, when they allegedly
violated their permit.
Burbank estimates the cost of the civil penalties alone to be
$185,075, as of Thursday.
"My aunt will be 96 in February, and she loves this old house. I
promised not to put her in a nursing home, and my daughter lives
here, too, but is allergic to my aunt's long-haired cats," said
Burbank, explaining why they wanted to build a separate apartment for
her daughter. "Now I have to spend the money to fight them. I have no
"I really can`t comment because the case is pending," said
Schultz. "I don't want to jeopardize the case."
The building inspector's lawsuit, naming Barbara Burbank and Woodward
as defendants, is dated Dec. 13 and details the town's involvement
with the women's home construction dating back to April 25, 2002.
That's the day they first applied to the Hampton Zoning Board for a
variance to convert the space above their garage at 292 Winnacunnet
Road into an "apartment for daughter."
The variance was denied following a June 20, 2002, public hearing, as
was an August 2002 motion for a rehearing, primarily because two-
family dwellings are prohibited under the Hampton Zoning Ordinance.
The women's request was not pursued through Superior Court, the next
legal step in an appeal process, according to Schultz's lawsuit.
In the meantime, the women applied for and received a variance to
convert the space above their garage into "a large recreational room
with smaller loft and bathroom above, two rooms total plus bathroom."
According to Schultz's suit, three months later, the homeowners'
attorney sent a letter to him saying they intended to comply with
zoning regulations by keeping the property as a single residence.
But during three subsequent inspections, representatives from the
Hampton Building Department reportedly observed electrical outlets
and wiring they believed were indicative of a kitchen set-up for an
apartment, court documents indicate. Those inspections took place
just before Burbank's daughter's ex-boyfriend wrote a damning letter
to town officials about the alleged plan to build an apartment.
On Nov. 10, 2004, the building department received a written
complaint from the Portsmouth man who claimed to have "stayed in this
addition with the daughter and had concerns about the safety of the
bedroom set-up above the garage due to there being no secondary means
of egress in case of emergency."
With that information, Schultz was able to obtain the administrative
inspection warrant necessary to search the property, and did so Nov.
19 in the company of a Hampton police officer and an assistant
During the search, they reported finding a two-bedroom apartment, a
kitchen and a laundry area. The findings also confirmed there was no
second means of exit, windows that don't meet requirements for means
of escape, and construction lacking the required fire separations
between the apartment and the garage below.
Schultz declared the apartment unsafe for human occupancy, posted the
home as such and declared it "unlawful for any person to use or
occupy this structure."
Burbank said there were not two bedrooms, but some walls erected for
future plans. There was a stovetop, she said, but no gas lines
connecting to it. And, she said, there was no sink hookup.
As for the reported lack of second egress, Burbank said the town
required her to replace a smaller window with a larger one,
specifically to address that point, and she complied. And while there
is a washing machine stored in the space, said Burbank, it is not
connected to any plumbing, something she said Schultz observed when
he crawled under the building during his inspection.
"I'm sure he was very disappointed. It's exactly the same as the last
day they inspected it, except we moved some furniture," she said. "He
lied about calling that a laundry room. And I never dreamed he would
leave here and say we had a full kitchen."
While he would not comment about the Burbank case specifically,
Schultz said, generally speaking, the town of Hampton discovers
illegal apartments in single-family homes through several means.
One is when the Police or Fire departments respond to an emergency
call to an address known to be a single-family home, but then observe
a separate apartment and report it to the Building Department.
Abutters also often see evidence of illegal apartment construction or
residence and report it.
"We'll follow up and, presto, how'd this get here?" said
Schultz. "Occasionally we run into situations where people take out
building permits and go a little beyond what they were permitted to
do. But we're not here just to shut everything down. We try to work
with people, to help people."
Schultz is scheduled to face Burbank and Woodward at 10 a.m. on Jan.
25 in Rockingham Superior Court.
"Here we are, three quiet generations. It's very frustrating," said
Burbank. "I don't know why the town is doing it."
Lyndeborough Police Department
testifies as follows:
As many of you know, I moved to New Hampshire, where it was my intent to try playing by all the rules. Driver license, vehicle registration, straight job, voter registration even.
And I applied for a pistol license, what you would call a CCW
Under NH state law, the local police chief has 14 days to either issue the license or deny -- with a specific reason -- in writing.
Lyndeborough PD CHief Basinas blew the deadline, and has resorted to what I see as harassment.
Friday, September 17, 2004, 9:00 AM: I went to the Lyndeborough Police Department to apply for a pistol license. Corporal Mike Geha provided a form dated 1999. I began to fill it out then realized that I hadn't brought my list of references with me. I took the form home to complete. I noticed that the form was a single-sided photocopy without the instructions on the "back" as mentioned on the form. I went to the state website and found a newer version of the form dated 2002; all instructions were on the front, and questions and required information differed from the older Lyndeborough-provided form.
Monday, September 20, 2004, 9:15 AM: I returned to the police department to turn in my pistol license application. Mike was not present, only Rick.Bailey. He wanted to fingerprint me as part of the application process. He finally called Mike on the phone who apparently explained to him, as did I, that no fingerprints are to be taken. I further explained that fingerprints and and photographs are specifically forbidden by RSA 159:6.
After all this, I then offered to pay the $10.00 fee. Rick was unwilling to accept the money, saying that he wasn't sure what the fee is supposed to be. He took my name and phone number and said he would have the Police Chief call me to clear up any confusion. I never received the phone call.
Tuesday, September 21, 2004, 10:00 AM:Since I had not been called by the Police Chief, I once again returned to the police department to settle the payment issue. This time, Mike was the only police officer present. He seemed slightly unsure of the payment amount but thought $10.00 was probably correct. But he would not take the money then; he explained that the fee is paid only when the Chief issues the actual license. I thought that was a little unusual, but I have found that some things are done in New Hampshire in ways that differ from other places where I have lived.
Mike told me that the license might be issued as soon as the coming Friday (September 24, 2004), but would probably be issued within two weeks. I said it certainly should be, since state law puts a 14 day limit on the process. Mike concurred.
Friday, October 1, 2004, 10:00 AM: Having received no license or calls from the police, I went to the police department to inquire about my license, because it had been 11 days since the application, and a weekend , when paperwork might not get done, was approaching. The station door was locked and no one appeared to be inside. I waited for approximately 15 minutes for any police personnel to arrive. I tried the door again, but it was still locked. A city employee, Neil Cass (?), noticed me and asked if he could do anything. I explained why I wanted to speak to someone in the police department; he was shocked when I mentioned the try at fingerprints. He told me no one was in the police station. He looked around the parking lot, noted that all the cruisers were there, but didn't know where everyone was. He offered to have someone from the police department call me when he saw them. I accepted and thanked him.
Given how things were going so far, I anticipated that my license might be delayed past the 14 day point, whether by poor training, bureaucratic incompetence, or deliberate obstructionism. Just in case, I called attorney Penny Dean to learn her rates and to to see if she would be willing to take my case against the Lyndeborough PD, if they missed the 14 day deadline. She responded positively.
Saturday, October 2, 2004, 8:00 AM: No call from the Lyndeborough PD yet.
Sunday, October 3, 2004, 10:30 AM: No call from the Lyndeborough PD yet.
Monday, October 4, 2004, 9:05 AM: Went to the Lyndeborough police station again to see if my license was ready. Spoke to Sgt. Geha (I asked; he was just promoted). He knew nothing about my license. I emphasized that the 14 day deadline had hit. He dug around in a couple of folders, but couldn't find my application. He finally searched the top of Chief Basinas' desk and found the application with a license attached. The license was unsigned. I moved to leave and said I needed to call my attorney. Sgt Geha tried to explain that sometimes they get busy and deadlines get missed. I suggested that he get the chief in to sign my license. He said the 14 day deadline was no big deal since the license was there, just unsigned. I said that was for my attorney to figure out. He then asked me to wait. He placed a call to Chief Basinas, and explained the situation. When he mentioned my intent to call my attorney, I gave Penny Dean's name. There was a pause, and Sgt Geha said the chief wanted to speak to me. I spoke to him, and explained why I think I've been getting the run-around, and stated my objections to Rick bailey wanting to fingerprint me. Chief Basinas said that he would sign the license and have it brought to me at my home. I asked if I Sgt Geha would finally accept the $10 fee I've been attempting to pay. He said Geha would accept it and get me a receipt. He then asked to speak to Geha again.
After listening briefly, Geha told the chief that no, I wasn't making trouble, that I was being very polite. He incorrectly told the chief that I was also in law enforcement. After he completed the phone call I pointed out that I am not currently in law enforcement.
I paid the fee, and was given a receipt. I told Geha that they had until close of business today (October 4, 2004) to get the license to me. If/when I get it, I will examine it to be sure it is correct.
Monday, October 4, 2004, 3:15 PM: No license yet.
Monday, October 4, 2004, 3:55 PM: I had just gotten to sleep after staying up a couple of hours past my bedtime (I work nights), when Sgt Geha of the LPD called and woke me up. He said Chief Basinas asked me to come to the station to talk. Since I was already short of sleep, and had just been awakened, I didn't feel safe driving; I declined. Sgt Geha asked if he and the chief could come out to the house and speak with me. I agreed, and said I would meet them at the road at the end of my driveway. Geha said they would arrive in approximately 20 minutes (roughly 4:15 PM).
Monday, October 4, 2004, 5:00 PM: I waited outside an additional 45 minutes beyond the estimated 4:15 PM arrival. Geha and Basinas never showed up.
Monday, October 4, 2004, 5:10 PM: Called Penny Dean to tell her to start on the LPD. Updated this log.
Monday, October 4, 2004, 5:30 PM: Just getting to sleep again, when Basinas and Geha knocked on the door. They brought the license and excuses about how busy they are. Basinas said to sign the license or he would write "refused to sign" and then _I_ would have to explain in court. I asked to read the license. Basinas said, "No, just sign it." I insisted, and he took the license to his cruiser, he said if I wanted to read it, I had to come to the cruiser, that he wouldn't let me read it at the house. I went to the cruiser under objections and said I wanted to read the license. Basinas said I had two seconds to sign, or he would write "refused to sign." I read the license, saw that he had back dated it to 9/24/04 (this is 10/04/04). I said, "9-24?" Basinas grabbed the clipboard and license away from me and yelled, "Refused to sign!" I replied, "I didn't refuse to sign; I said '9-24'"
Basinas and Geha entered the cruiser, with Geha saying, "I'm a witness; you refused to sign."

Peter Giese, Chief of Police of the Town of Enfield (now retired)
Mike Lorrey testifies as follows:
Peter Giese is a thug. I know him personally, he tried to screw with my CCW application, til I brought the wrath of god, GONH, and the NRA down on his ass.
I applied at his police station in 1999. 14 days later, I called the station, asking that my permit be ready to be picked up on my way home from work. The receptionist didn't know what I was talking about. I asked to talk to Giese.
NOTE: Giese always talks like he either just woke up from a nap, or is seriously drunk.
"What do you want?"
"I'd like to pick up my CCW permit, since it's been 14 days since I applied."
"I don't know what your'e talking about. What is your name?"
"Michael Lorrey is my name, I applied for a pistol carry license 14 days ago, and I know the law requires you to issue it within 14 days of my application, that its my right."
"You don't have a right to carry a gun!"
"Excuse me? Have you read the NH Constitution recently?"
"This sounds like some kind of sacred cow issue here."
"Look, I don't want to get into an argument about this, but I know what day it is, and I know the law. Could you please look into this issue? I know that you have not processed the application."
"What makes you think that?"
"Because you haven't called any of the three references I put down on the application."
"We're not gonna call any of those people, they're only gonna say nice things about you."
"Really? They why did you ask for their names in the first place if you aren't going to call any of them?"
"Look, could you please just look into this?"
This was a Friday afternoon.
I then contacted Rep. Paul Mirski, retired Lebanon cop Cliff Henderson (father of a friend of mine who is a friend of Giese), the NRA, and GONH.
By wednesday, my permit was complete, 5 calendar and 3 business days beyond the legally mandated deadline, and after Giese called all around town to a lot of people, spreading the implication in the community that I was a violent man under investigation, including to my roomate and my employer.
Several months later, I went to get Giese's signature on a Form 4 for a Class III purchase, which is a whole nother story. This guy is a thug.
Earl Sweeney, NH Assistant "Safety" Commissioner
"[NH] Assistant Safety Commissioner Earl Sweeney says ....
'[I]f you ride around for eight hours and you're
observant that you should find somebody to stop every
hour or two.' .... He said troopers should hand out more

Police asked to stop more vehicles
By Associated Press
CONCORD - Assistant Safety Commissioner Earl Sweeney says
state troopers should be stopping more drivers.
He points out that highway patrol is a fundamental duty of state
police and that contact with drivers has declined in recent years.
"Iím focusing more on contacts than I am on tickets,"
Sweeney told the New Hampshire Sunday News. "They are not out here to give
everybody a ticket. They recognize the value of a warning as well.
"Iím just saying that if you ride around for eight hours and
youíre observant that you should find somebody to stop every hour or two. You
should be making contact with somebody.
"The fact is that some troopers are doing an awful lot of work
and there are some that are not doing a lot of work," he said of the 198
He said troopers should hand out more tickets for stop-sign and
solid-line violations, and make more stops for missing a license plate, rolling
on bald tires or not showing brake lights.
He said officers should get out of their cruisers and check with the
driver when they see a car on the shoulder of the interstate. Such action can
lead to discovery of more serious violations, help prevent crime, change driving
behavior, increase trooper visibility and boost the image of the force, he said.
Sweeney took over as assistant commissioner of safety in October 2003
after 18 years as director of the New Hampshire Police Standards and Training
He raised the issue of "proactive traffic enforcement" at a
meeting in March with the state police lieutenants who command the six regional
Sweeney said his only motivation is to push troopers to "be the
absolute best that they can be."
"The vast majority of them are doing that, but any of us can use
a tune-up," he said.
He said his message could apply also to city and town police
departments and other enforcement agencies within the state Department of
Sweeney said his review of citations issued last year suggested an
unnecessarily heavy reliance on radar enforcement of the speed laws.
"If a trooperís radar malfunctions, we may as well send him or
her home. Whatever happened to surveilling a yellow line, a stop sign, a yield
sign, a school bus stop?" he said.
At the meeting with lieutenants, Sweeney cited statistics that showed
state police made 166,357 vehicle stops in 2003, an average of 840 stops a year
per trooper. Deducting vacation, training time and sick leave, he figured that
is fewer than four stops a day per trooper.
"Doubling this to a stop an hour would have resulted in 332,714
stops instead of 166,357. How many lost opportunities to apprehend a DWI, a
suspended or revoked driver, or a wanted person does that represent?"
Sweeney asked the troop commanders.
"Traffic activity is only one measurement, but I focused on that
particular day on that particular measurement," Sweeney said.
"The use of data and statistics, itís the only way we can keep
track of the 1,000 people who work for this agency in 30 or 40 locations around
"State police is just one part of that and traffic activity is
only one measurement that weíre using. Weíre considering how they treat the
public, how many complaints we receive. Whatís the clearance rate on crime?
Whatís their personal appearance? How well do they take care of their
vehicles? Whatís the quality of their reports? Are they consistently getting
convictions in court?"
the "Selectmen's" Clerk in Grafton
All three Selectmen in Grafton
There is a Clerk in Grafton who speaks sweetly but refuses to
help us obtain PUBLIC INFORMATION
(in the nicest way, you understand).
She recently refused to tell us the physical location of
PUBLIC INFORMATION controlled by the Tax Collector of
the Town of Grafton.
She also refused to allow Dave Walthour to make a copy of
a portion of the Tax Map that was in her office,
even though there was a copy machine five feet away.
This was a violation of New Hampshire Statute 91-A.
She is required by Law to allow all public records to be copied;
and if she makes a copy she may not charge more than the
Here is Dave Walthour's experience in that office:
I went in to the town office to see the tax map.
I asked Bonnie [Haubrich] if I could make a photocopy
of a portion of a page.
(It is a rather large document, approx. 2 x 3 feet.)
She said, "Oh, no. It could possibly destroy the map
if you took it over to the copier.
You may trace any portion of it, if you would like."
So, yes, it is a public document,
however, Bonnie was being quite protective of the map
to prevent wear and tear by hauling it over
to the photocopier located 5 feet away.
As I was tracing a parcel of land
(which is back on the market again - 5 acres for $25,000)
another realtor came in.
I told him what I was doing and why.
He said, "oh, I just do it anyway.
She doesn't see since she is in the next room."
I just talked to Bonnie Haubrich, the "Selectmen's Clerk" in Grafton.
She claims she didn't refuse to let Dave Walthour copy the Tax Map,
she says she only wouldn't let it out of the office. She says that
she said that if she could SEE him take it to a Copy Center across
the street, say, she would have, but the Copy Center is 45 minutes
She didn't mention refusing to let him make a copy of portions of
the Tax Map on the copier 5 feet away, as is his recollection.
She says that Mike Lorrey was the first one who asked for a copy of
the Tax Maps, but she didn't seem so clear after Robert Hull's name
came up. There seems to be some confusion about which one asked for
what. But Robert says that he discovered that someone DID buy the
Computer Version of the Maps, so I'm guessing that Mike is the one,
since she says no one else has asked.
MIKE, HEY MIKE, do you have a copy of the Computer Maps? How much
do you want to make me a CD?
She says that it was only a few weeks ago that The Selectmen
unanimously set a price of $35.00 for a computer printout of the list of NAMES ONLY
(WITHOUT THE ADDRESSES)
of the Property Owners in Grafton. She says that John
Babiarz has a copy of the Minutes of that Meeting, in a publication
I believe she called "Focus".
She says that somewhat earlier, perhaps, the Selectmen also
officially set a price of $350.00 (!!!!) for a copy of the computer
file that has the Tax Maps. The actual (marginal) cost of this is
only about a buck, since it fits on a CD. So in effect she is
saying that THE SELECTMEN OF GRAFTON, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM, is
obstructing us by setting a prohibitive price on PUBLIC
INFORMATION. Bonnie says that John Babiarz's copies of "Focus"
ought to have the Minutes of that Meeting too.
Bonnie Haubrich says that her computer doesn't contain the Addresses
of the Property Owners. I asked who sends out the Tax Notices,
since that person obviously has the Addresses. She said that is
done by the Tax Collector. I said okay how do I get to THAT
computer? She said it's in the Tax Collector's Office, which is in
the Tax Collector's HOME. I said okay what is the address of that
computer that contains these PUBLIC RECORDS, and SHE REFUSED TO GIVE
ME THE PHYSICAL ADDRESS WHERE THAT COMPUTER IS, on the grounds that
it is a Private Residence. This is definitely a violation of RSA 91-

He presents an image of one who welcomes The Free State Project

But he is far from libertarian.
Governor Benson is willing to imprison street

no-brainer. He said so, at a time when he wasn't even backed into a
corner, a Manchester debate where the other candidates approved of
legal Medical Marijuana, he wouldn't have lost much by being one

no uncertain terms.

Robin Frost was the Town Administrator
at the inception of Mr. Celata's persecution, and aided and abetted

not going to go the way of Mr. Drega. Mr. Celata is reasonable
and seems, so far, willing to cave in - as a last resort -
