Puzzling Timesheets and the YSPD: Fraud?

The Yellow Springs Police Department and Fraud

This writer attended Greenon High School and fondly remembers sitting in Advanced Government 101, learning about the federal, state, and local levels of government. He knew all the townships, villages, and cities of Clark County. He learned everything about the executive, legislative, and judicial branches.

The writer also remembers his government teacher being arrested for embezzling tens of thousands of dollars and later pleading guilty.[1][2]

 

Mockingbird Publishing to sue the Village of Yellow Springs for withholding public records

7 weeks ago the staff of the Mockingbird began a series of public records requests. There are over 5 outstanding requests right now. We have been met with denials, lies and obfuscation on all of our requests. The law on the matter reads “reasonable amount of time” and in my life I have never seen so much gas lighting, obfuscation and denial. The typical time is ten days.

 

Abused former Yellow Springs Teacher Files $100,000 Countersuit.

In jiujitsu there is a concept called an arm drag. Your opponent pushes against you hard and over extends themselves. You pull their arm horizontally across their body, leaving them further off balance. This opens them to further, finishing techniques.

The art and science of obfuscation in public records law

Several citizens have called upon the Mockingbird to investigate several ongoing issues with the Yellow Springs Public Schools System and The Yellow Springs Police Department. Multiple leads have been given and multiple documents have been leaked by multiple people. This has lead our staff on a long series of public records requests to verify claims and construct a narrative around what has now become a widening group of stories. These stories seem to show an expanding pattern of flailing behind covering and arrogant obfuscations.

 

How to illegally gag elected officials and break election law, the small town method

The small town of Yellow Springs has seen much community outcry since the revelations last week that the school system allowed an alleged student rapist to remain in the schools for most of a year and that said student was the Principal's son. Many parents and other residents have openly called for answers from the school board and none has been forthcoming. The reason for the silence is simple.

 

It takes a village to raise a Brock Turner, but Yellow Springs is a village that can do anything

People like Brock Turner can not develop and continue to exist without help from their parents and their parents' connections. This is how he managed to lie to the courts about his very location. Although he is also in the Miami Valley, upper-middle class suburbia would rather not look over the fence and see a mirror, when in reality Yellow Springs has it's own young privileged boy alleged to have raped at least two of his classmates without consequence.
