02/04/08 - Savannah Lamotte, would tell police about John J. Bria's Death: "Maria and Jason picked me up around 9 p.m. …

Savannah Lamotte Says:

"Maria and Jason picked me up around 9 p.m. … We went to Shell and got some cigarettes, and then we went somewhere to shoot some heroin. We then went to get some cocaine …We went back to Shell and got some other stuff, and we went to shoot up some more heroin somewhere. The we went to John's house. When we got to John's house, Katie, Megan and John were all there.

Katie Hanscom, Megan Caron and Jason Cunningham were high school friends of Bria. Maria Scinto, also in the group, is from nearby Port Chester, N.Y.

Jason Cunningham would tell police that during the day, John Bria "was feeling really high from the pills that Megan
Caron had given him."

As the night wore on, most of the group left.

Jason Cunningham stayed behind, calling his mother,
Donna Cunningham about 4 a.m.

Ms. Cunningham arrived to pick him up about 8:30 a.m. Bria had been dead for several hours by that time.

Jason Cunningham told Bria's father that his son was still sleeping.

NO ONE CALLED 911 !!!!

Instead they
worked to cover up the drug party rather than notify John Bria's parents.

No one called the police, paramedics or anyone who could render John Bria medical assistance.

They just let him die, to save themselves.

Worse yet the Greenwich Police Department assisted these evil doers by just closing the case on the dead Byram boy.

Maybe if 19 year old John J. Bria had been killed in Stamford his family would have gotten justice.

02/04/08 - Here is some lengthly election blogpistle from Bill Clark at the Greenwich Gossip Blog

Super Tuesday Comes to Greenwich

In a couple of days we here in Greenwich may have helped to pick the winning candidates for each party in the next Presidential election. As Greenwich goes, so goes the nation, right? Well, our Town has produced more US senators, ambassadors, vice presidents, and presidents than any other town in the country, so it makes perfect sense that this should be the case.

Meanwhile, the local political landscape is changing as well. Skippy Snickerson and the Doll have both announced their long-awaited retirement plans, and there is dancing in the streets at the opportunity to send some fresh blood up to Hartford. Former State Rep Janet Lockton is itching to get back into harness, and would be a natural to replace Skippy. Ed Krumeich nearly beat the Doll last time around, and after many years of yeoman service to the Town on the BET and the DTC, would make an ideal replacement for her. As mentioned before in these pages, Ed's prowess on the stage as seen in numerous local Gilbert & Sullivan productions would make him well-suited to tap dance his way though the political tripwires up in Hartford.

Moreover, Ed being a Democrat, he would quite likely have more influence for good in our local area as a member of the majority party in the House. Why the local voters have never focused on the widsom of sending a strong Democratic candidate to the House is a mystery to your scribe, but maybe that will change this time around. As for Republican candidate Janet, her district would include part of north Stamford and New Canaan (remember, dear reader, the State Senate is much smaller than the House of Representatives), which is pretty much dyed-in-the-wool Republican territory. Her experience and contacts in Hartford would be certain to prove beneficial to all of us here in the local area.

Meanwhile, Skippy is still very much on the scene, alas. Your scribe was walking peacfully down Greenwich Avenue the other day when he was accosted by Skippy, who waved his arms wildly like semaphores and exclaimed, "Hi! How are you? Great to see you!" Your scribe had to duck under the flailing arms in order to get by him and proceed on his way. (As long-time readers of these pages will recall, Skippy is well aware of your scribe's allergic reaction to him, and loves to make a game of it; he has been known to sneak up behind your scribe at the library and say "Hi, Bill" in order to elicit a "Hello" in return - which actually worked once, much to your scribe's embarrassment.)

So change is in the wind, and our Town has its part to play in bringing it about. Which, of course, means YOU, dear reader. The polls will be open from 6 AM to 8 PM, so be sure to do your civic duty and VOTE. No, I know the party machines in Town no longer reimburse you in cash for your trouble, as they did in the early decades of the last century, but that's no reason to stay home. Remember, people tend to get the government they deserve. Indifference breeds business as usual. If there's one thing on which all the candidates seem to agree right now, it's the need for change. So let's all do our part to bring it about.
