Hey Steve Weiss,

Yet, The Greenwich High School Video Was Not Released?

Shame on:

Assistant State's Attorney

Steve Weiss

for not protecting the

public's right to know.

Assistant States Attorney Steve Weiss doesn't want parents to see the danger that there children are in at Greenwich High School.

Assistant States Attorney Steve Weiss refuses to release the video of a Greenwich High School student getting tased three times in the high school cafeteria.

Because Assistant States Attorney Steve Weiss knows that tasers are weapons that can and have killed hundreds of times.

Shame on Greenwich Town Attorney For Refusing To Release The Video Of Carlos Franco Using A Taser On The Neck, Chest and Leg Of A High School Student Who Was Suspended Over Water Balloons.

Shame on Assistant State's Attorney Steve Weiss, the prosecutor has folded under pressure from the Greenwich Silver Shield Association - The Greenwich Police Department Union. That's why Victor's family continues to be punished with a $50,000 bail.

Survellance videos of taser use are often released, except in Greenwich, Several requests for the tape have been made by news agencies.

Assistant State's Attorney Steve Weiss wont even allow a release of the video showing victor being tased three times to his parents.

First this poor kid got up to 50,000 volts and a $50,000 bail,
now the boy is getting rail roaded by

Assistant State's Attorney Steve Weiss.


Assistant State's Attorney Steve Weiss is wrongly claiming that releasing the tape would be prejudicial.

This boy is going before a judge not a jury.

Tell the judge not to watch the video.

Many many times the Greenwich Police Department has no problems about releasing video that features crime suspects, but now that the video features one of their own they have pressured Assistant State's Attorney Steve Weiss to suppress the video.

Is Assistant State's Attorney Steve Weiss
Covering Up Police Misconduct?


Why dose Assistant State's Attorney Steve Weiss only find that a video is prejudicial when it features police officers.

Assistant State's Attorney Steve Weiss has handled scores of cases where a suspects video was released before trial.

This video must be very bad and must show police misconduct for
Assistant State's Attorney Steve Weiss to suppress the video.

It's impossible to predict what might become prejudicial in a law enforcement action.

Assistant State's Attorney Steve Weiss fails to understand that the goal is to protect the accused from the release of prejudicial materials.

The accused boy and his family
want the video released.


Assistant State's Attorney Steve Weiss is only trying to protect the Greenwich Police Department from charges of misconduct.

The citizens of Connecticut will never truly have justice as long as they have an
Assistant State's Attorney like Steve "I Am Afraid Of The Silver Shield" Weiss.

Requests for taser recording rejected

By Martin B. Cassidy

The Board of Education has rejected Freedom of Information requests for a surveillance video of a Greenwich High School student being tasered by town police trying to arrest him at the school two weeks ago, Town Attorney John Wayne Fox said.

Fox said he and Assistant State's Attorney Steve Weiss, the prosecutor in the case, decided that a pending criminal case against Londono shields the footage of the incident from public release under the state FOI law......

06/07/08 - Laura DiBella Reports - "Touring" the Ham Ave Site


Hamilton Avenue School Report Card

Just finished a tour of the
"new"
Hamilton Avenue School
construction site.


If it ever gets finished, it should be impressive.

However, can someone explain WHY the furniture and furnishings have been delivered to this site? Granted, most are in boxes, but this building is in no way clean, dust is everywhere, and there sits the new furniture and furnishings. Is the building committee going to go to the RTM and ask for more money to clean furniture and furnishings that should not even be there?

The first floor rooms that are designated for Pre-K have sidewalks leading to the courtyard, but no doors. WHY? The original education specifications showed that each pre-k classroom was to have an independent door to the courtyard. These areas will become magnets for area ne'er-do-wells.

Why did Frank Mazza state that all the systems were running today? Isn't that just sucking up the dust and debris into those systems? Won't those systems need to be heavily cleaned before the building opens?

Why is the playing field sloped? It was supposed to be level. The only thing that looks good is the basketball court, which was put in by the Chickahominy Reunion Association.

The media center is half the original width. It appears that the original drawings didn't include a hallway, so space was taken from the media center to create it.

The courtyard, on all drawings was to be landscaped, why then is it all concrete?

This parent does not see how this building will be legally ready for the kids come the start of school. There is just too much left to do.
