DEMAND ANSWERS: Formal Complaints filed by Dan Reppucci to County Commissioners against Deputy Kelvin Macie and Winchester BOS against Cheif Gary Phillips & Lt Christopher Roberts

Unethical Police and Police Corruption – Don’t Look the Other Way - DEMAND ANSWERS, ASK QUESTIOINS AND HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE.

Why is Hinsdale Police Officer, Theresa Sepe, now a Board member, helping to cover up these crimes and protecting the CHIEF?


Why is former Lt. Sherman Tedford helping to cover up these crimes, now that he is a Board of Selectmen?

Why don’t they DEMAND answers from the CHIEF?

They KNOW the LAW, they know the DEPARTMENT Policies and THEY KNOW their CHIEF lied and manipulated and twisted the TRUTH to get rid of REPPUCCI.

Why do they hide from the TRUTH?

Have you ever been accused of doing something you didn't do? Have you ever had to defend yourself against a lie? accusation? mistruth?

Have you ever had to STAND up for yourself because someone doesn’t like what you stand for?

When the police do it, the stakes are higher.

The police are trusted because we are taught they aren’t supposed to break the law.

But they CAN and all too often they Do.

And when BAD Cops do it to GOOD people they try to cover it up and make the GOOD people look BAD.

This is what happens when the GOOD people have the proof and Stand Up to the COPS who are BAD.

Sometimes Good people get to speak out and give evidence and they show the world that there really are BAD Cops in the world and we need to know about them.

JUST think what could happen to you, if you get accused of doing something wrong, when you didn’t, but the police accuse you anyway, just because they can.

Because they don’t like what you stand for.

Just think what can happen to honest, law abiding people, if we keep letting them get away with it?

We all must all do our part to expose and stop BAD COPS so the GOOD COPS can do their job.


It’s time to fight back against BAD COPS. There is NO room for people who misuse their power and then lie through their teeth that they don't.

If you can’t be an honest cop and Follow the Laws and uphold the Constitution then there is no room for you as a cop in this Country.

We will be vigilant and we will expose you and all your dirty deeds, because that’s what GOOD people do to protect other GOOD people when BAD Cops don’t.

Dan Reppucci, wrongfully and unlawfully terminated, after Gary Phillips, Chief of Police and Cheshire County Deputy Kelvin Macie BOTH TESTIFY UNDER OATH he was "insubordinate" when he failed to answer questions during an "internal investigation".

Neither has told the truth, under oath, that it was a CRIMINAL investigation and by law and department policy, Reppucci has a LEGAL right to NOT answer questions and TO speak with an Attorney as he requested to do – BEFORE answering questions.

Instead of complying with that request, THEY chose to VIOLATE his Constitutional Rights to consult with an attorney.

The REASON is Simple: Reppucci was being TARGETED by the Chief for HIS information and knowledge of criminal and unethical activities going on in the police department.

Activity that the Chief wanted COVERED UP. The way to accomplish that was to discredit and silence REPPUCCI.

Facts:

The Chief of Police reported to Sheriff Foote a break in and theft at the Police Department.

Deputy Kelvin Macie was sent by Sheriff Foote to investigate.

Kelvin Macie - Investigator for Cheshire County NH Deputy Sheriff.

Repucci knew they were conducting a criminal investigation and asked to consult with an attorney BEFORE answering questions because he felt he was being targeted, it was HIS legal RIGHT, IT was THEIR Obligation to obey that request.

A legal right to counsel is afforded to anyone in the country in criminal investigations conducted by the police and that included Reppucci.

Phillips and Macie violated the 5th and 6th Amendments of the US Constitution, when they did not allow Reppucci to exercise his Constitutional Right to Counsel.

Neither are NEW to LAW ENFORECEMENT and BOTH have many years of experience.

Reppucci was concerned he was being SET UP by the Chief.

Reppucci has stated and it is recorded in Kelvin Macie's report he felt he was being targeted for termination for reporting illegal and unethical activities going on at the Winchester Police Department.

Both Deputy Kelvin Macie and Chief Gary Phillips testified Reppucci was being questioned during an internal investigation and during that questioning he failed to cooperate.

Why would they testify that it was an internal investigation and not a criminal investigation?

Simple, if it was internal investigation, he was insubordinate; if it was a criminal investigation, he wasn't, as he was exercising his constitutional right to speak with counsel under the law and the department policies he was employed under.

In order to discredit and go after Reppucci, the Chief with the help of Kelvin Macie had to tell everyone AND also testify that Reppucci was bad and wasn't following orders. That he was being insubordinate and he had to be disposed of, immediately, that he was a threat to the department.

The Chief and Deputy colluded to successfully violate his constitutional rights.

They lied about the fact it was a criminal investigation. They hid and covered up that very important fact up making people believe that they did nothing wrong but that Reppucci was the one who was wrong. Including to the courts.

Both try to discredit Reppucci saying he's just a disgruntled employee who is mad he didn't get a promotion.

Dan Reppucci's story makes sense, a pretend break in and a person fired are just too coincidental and a history with this Chief.

Those who know Reppucci know he wouldn't have given up a 15 year career because he didn't get a promotion. He has an extensive and accomplished background and his yearly reviews were near perfect year after year, including the one he got just a few months before this entire matter. The Chief going on and on for pages about Reppucci's accomplishments, self sacriface, availability even after hours, with NO EXTRA pay, to the department and officers and his importance to both the agency and the Chief and how his professionalism carries over into the rest of the police community.

Reppucci: Sergeant, Detective, Police Prosecutor for several years, educated, disciplined.

Realistically, even if there was some problem, you would think that the Chief wouldn't just "throw away" such a loyal employee whom he relied on and who was always there for both him and the Department.

The Chief's story makes no sense.

Those who know Reppucci know the real story know that the problem is that he had information the Chief didn't and still doesn't want out in public. Information he doesn't want the public to know about.

The Chief TRIED to VIOLATE this Officer's Constitutional Rights when he ordered him, demanded the Officer immediately cooperate and immediately answer questions in the Deputy's criminal investigation.

Reppucci held firm, stood his ground and honored the Oath of Office he took to not violate the law and to Uphold the Constitution.

The Chief couldn't find anything else this Officer had done wrong so he had his Lt. Chris Roberts check his emails and fabricate yet another story.

They both tell a story about how he was stealing confidential documents.

Reppucci says that's a ridiculous lie. Reppucci has proof that Roberts lied under oath and fabricated his story because the only emails he ever had were work related and turned in when complete and nothing was ever stolen.

Reppucci said that the emails he had were emails that there show there were problems with some of the employees at the police department, including Roberts.

Reppucci has said he was given an assignment to investigate some goings on at the police department and it's not his fault that the truth ended up being negative for Roberts and the Chief wanted it covered up.

Reppucci had been bringing forward knowledge of Criminal and Unethical Activity going on and is still going on in the police department. So far it's swept under carpets. Sooner or later that will stop happening.

Reppucci wants to see Justice done and these people properly disciplined and removed from their poistions for what they have done to him and to others.

Reppucci wants the opportunity to clear his name. He has said he will continue that fight until the truth comes out. We will continue to help him.

Phillips, Macie and Roberts have ALL violated their Oath of Office and should be ashamed of themselves for even thinking they fall into the same class as real, honest and hardworking Law Enforcement Professionals.

Police Corruption Needs to be Exposed and Needs to be Dealt with Legally. 

The THIN BLUE LINE needs to be CROSSED. 

Please feel free to share your stories and comments.


Christopher Roberts - Lt, Winchester NH Police Department

Gary Phillips - Chief, Winchester Police NH Department

Phillips and Roberts have no idea the Pandora's Box they have opened.

Just like in Hansel and Gretel, the birds ate the bread crumbs and they couldn’t find their way back. Or maybe Pinocchio would be better. Those stories were supposed to teach children some morals, were they not in the households of Phillips and Roberts?

The BOS have no idea the shame they bring to this town for putting these people in place and keeping them there.

There are many police officer's of this town who have been hurt because of what has gone on and they are now victims. You have townspeople hurt - some physically scarred for life because you allowed a weapon owned by the Town to be in the hands of someone with criminal tendencies who then physically hurt and victimized this person – now another victim. All on your backs because you were warned and looked the other way.

It’s all very well documented and editing the story to come with a new fairy tale just isn’t going to work.

Even now Roberts is stalking his prey at the police department - like Hinsdale all over again.

Another warning that will go unheeded

Hmmmmmmm, how come Ms. Sepe hasn't delved into these problems at her old police station?

Didn't she take Roberts place at Hinsdale when they fired Roberts and didn't she leave in the first place because she couldn't deal with Phillips management style?

So Ms Sepe, why now as a member of the BOS are you so hush hush about this?

Phillips did a big one this time didn't he? And Roberts helped him! Hmmmmmm. It's starting to make sense now.

Funny what happens when the dust starts to settle. Must be like when you do an investigation, right?

There's no doubt that we have yet to hear the end of the story.

Things aren't adding up for the those in charge at the police department.

The story used to be it was a couple of disgruntled employees causing all the problems.

Plain as day there are bigger issues going on.

What was being covered up and by whom?

Phillips and Roberts already had speculative pasts.

Both are part of the good ole boy system.

Both have been caught being dishonest.

Both have broken the law.

The police association and fraudulent paperwork to the bank are an example of that.

Bad people get caught when they do bad things because they can't remember to take care of all the little details they tried to cover up.

Seems like they always forget one detail and that trips them up.

Maybe that's what will happen to them and then Winchester will be that much better off.

What can you expect? Don't think anyone is gonna help solve this too easy.Winchester has always been known as the bottom of the barrel. Is anyone really surprised about all this? Theresa Sepe is perfect proof. She sits on the board and does nothing except cover up for Phillips, Roberts and Jette. If Jette didn't resign on his own he'd still be here and Theresa was O.K. with that. What kind of a cop is she? She's no better than the ones she covers up for.She's just anotehr wimp board member. They're all a joke and shouldn't get paid.

Question: Why would a Chief of Police lie to every one, even the courts and say one of his officers was Insubordinate and didn't obey his command to answer questions in a internal investigation? Why didn't he just say it was a criminal investigation like it was?

Answer: Because then this police officer would legally be entitled to speak with a lawyer and that would be a threat to his boss becasue his boss wouldn't be able to order him around or have a say so in the matter.

The boss was trying to cover something up and was afraid if the police officer talked to a lawyer he'd be found out, the boss needed to prevent that from happening so he had to make up a story. He could do that by bringing false allegations against the police officer.

Question: How has this Chief of Police gotten away with this for so long?

Question: Why are his bosses (BOS) covering this up and not admonishing him for this?

Question: Why have the Chief and his bosses caused another police officer, in good standing, to lose his job based on a fairy tale story?

Question: Why is this police officer caught in the middle?

Answer: To discredit him, so nobody believes him and then he goes away and they keep on business as usual. This police officer must know things that are not favorable and to cause someone to lose their job must be pretty big.

The chief has to quickkly discredit the officer, after all whose gonna believe one person being accused of all these terrible things, when you have such big bosses pointing the finger?

Bosses, especailly ones who are police officers are expected to be honest and truthful. That is not the case here.

They obciously don't know the law. Violating a persons constitutional rights is illegal.

Whatever poor excuse they will eventually use: we didn't know we were breaking the law, we didn't realize he had Constitutional Rights or he deserved what he got, will be just that, EXCUSES.

Worse these Officers of the Law are allowed to prey on the population and rig circumstances as they see fit.

It's unlikely that this will continue to go unnoticed.

I'm sure these backstabbing, unethical and non law abiding members of our society think they got away with it.

This is probably going to be a case of He who laughs first, laughs last.

You're on the right track to exposing a problem we have all across this country Good Luck.

The police chief is doing a bang up job, just ask the BOS, they want to give him more money. Wonder what he has on a couple of these people?

The Chief isn't capable of doing a good job and the selectmen know that. They all have lied to the courts, to us and to anyone they think is stupid enough to listen. I hope we keep getting the information from this blog to put the parts to this puzzle together. So far nothing from the Town about the coverup. They must have a problem admitting they're wrong. Guess they'll have to get a swift kcik in the ... from Reppucci before they admit what they did. How come Theresa Sepe a cop looks the other way? Didn't they teach her about civil rights way back when she did her academy? Maybe they all need lessons. The AG's van give it to them. We'll see. But it's gonna cost us in the end.

This has been a very interesting read. I came across this site through facebook. I recommend that people read and take seriously the content of blogs like this one. There is a wealth of information into the inner workings of our government and what these governments keep from us on the internet. This is just one example of how our Constitutional Rights will dwindle away if we are not vigilant in their protection. When the government walks on us and our freedoms, we need to fight back. If we don't stop them at the local levels we end up pushing these same people into the State and Federal arena's. Too often, it's Greed and Power at the root of the problem. What is presented here is a classic case of that. Keep us updated through facebook and this blog and we will spread the word for all of our sakes. We must stop the erosion of civil rights in this country. Get involved and dispel the myth that we are all just complacent dummy’s waiting to be told what to do and end up getting abused by an ineffective system that encourages this type of behavior.

Hang in there - they are all imploding and it's sooooooooo obvious they have lied to protect themselves. Only a couple of greaseball cops could get away with that sh.t.

Keep them on their toes, cause you sure can't keep 'em honest.

The Chief is an ignoramus who doesn't know the law. That's obvious. Why the selectmen don't do somehting is the mystery.

Another example of the big guy pushing the little guy. Keep fighting for what's right. There is a constitution in this country that too many people in power have forgotten, including our police.

How does the Chief of Winchester and a Deputy from the Sheriff's Dept who used to be a Keene cop, screw up so bad that they don't what the laws are? How many combined years doing criminal investigations do they have? 50? 60?And neither new about Miranda? Give me a break.
