Sheriff: Son Didn't See the Super Bowl Game

Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti addressed the Super Bowl issue, telling the Sun-Sentinel (you know who) that his son accompanied him to the big game but that he was working and that neither saw the game, except on TV, and that they spent almost the entire game outside the stadium overseeing BSO security of the game.

It's a belated explanation, but I'll take it.

Did Lamberti use poor judgment in taking his son to last year's big game? Absolutely. Security at the Super Bowl is serious business, especially considering potential terrorist threats. It's not a place for untrained kids, especially if something serious would have happened. Imagine if all the security heads -- at the FBI, ATF, Miami-Dade PD, Homeland Security, etc. -- brought their kids along. The Super Bowl detail would have seemed a ridiculously unprofessional farce.

Were official documents falsified to get his son into the game? Technically, yes. Simply by putting his son on the credentials list as a BSO employee with a bogus ID number establishes that. 

Lamberti's 16-year-old son was listed as a member of the rather elite unit there to protect the Indianapolis Colts. But if we are to believe Lamberti (and I do) that father and son didn't take advantage of that rarefied access and spent almost the entire game outside the stadium where the sheriff worked and the boy observed, then it's time to put this issue to rest. 

It is what it is, as they say, and its 15 minutes were up a while back. Hopefully some lessons were learned. 

-- Inside, read Deerfield Beach activist Chaz Stevens' email to Sylvia Poitier (and copied to ASA Tim Donnelly and several members of the media). Normally I don't report Stevens' vindictive ramblings, but this one I think exemplifies the Chaz problem very well. Click through to read, but I warn you that, if you are human, it will leave you feeling uneasy.

Here's the email, which had the subject line "Ghost of Christmas Future":

Dear Commissioner Sylvia Poitier;

Greetings from New York City.  

News of your upcoming demise has even reached the Big Apple. Oddly enough, I seemed to be more clued in than you on your near term future.  (Hint: it's bleak).  

As I love to bring tidings of joy, let me share this:

You are about to get your ass seriously handed to you. 

So go right ahead, continue walking around town as if nothing is wrong... Again I have to ask... Are you tripping balls?  Your actions remind me of a chicken with it's mouth open upturned towards the rain. However this time, you won't have that nitwit Mike Mahahey there to provide you with FastCAP cover.  

Keep in mind that since the charges (note: plural) against you will be of a felony corruption nature, the city's prepaid legal defense policy won't apply. As Mr. Maurodis is too nice of a guy to say these words, allow me to speak for him. You, like Mayor Capellini, can take a flying leap...

One final question. Are you still using that lawyer on the 5th floor over at 1600 S. Dixie Highway in Boca?

Toodles.

Chaz

This makes me want to do something I never thought I would: Root for Poitier.

Here's a lesson for Stevens to learn: Activism, like journalism and blogging, should never be personal. Nor wildly vindictive or malignant. Nor creepy, weird, or seemingly unhinged.

Joy in justice is sublime, but joy in someone's personal destruction is disgraceful. You discredit only yourself with this kind of thing, Chaz. It's not OK. Please stop.

Bob Norman wrote this? Talk about the pot calling the kettle black and it's not that anyone rational disagrees. It's that coming from Bob, appeals to decency are so incredibly hypocritcal. It's just hysterically unexpected. I mean really, since when has Bob Norman not taken joy in wildly and malignantly attacking someone? Is this not the blog altar of such delight? More likely Bob just doesn't like seeing anyone more scumbaggy than him writing a blog. Without a doubt Chaz Stevens fits that description and Bob's just jealous. Either that or somebody just gave him more cash on the side, that practice being so customary for bloggers. Very funny stuff.

You know Bob. I agreed to never comment here, but with your recent remarks about me, allow me to retort (and republish an email I sent to you earlier).

First, let's get to my supposed harassement of Larry L. Really? Do tell. Exactly what did I do?

I merely pulled some public records about him, of which I never published, and reached out via a private email to him. An email address he provided to me. How is this illegal?

Same thing with DF3. I pulled his public records and have never published them... Amazing what you can find via Lexis Nexis.

Speaking about keeping your mouth shut... Same can't be said about DF3...But that is okay. When it comes to ... Almost used his real name... Death Frog3, hypocrisy is his middle name.

All sorts of name calling has come my way... That's okay. That goes with the turf, especially when most commenters think they are protected by their perceived "veil of anonymousness".

I laugh when I read all the crap said about me. Do you really think it has a moment's impact on my life? Trust me, it doesn't.

2. About taking this personal. Folks in Deerfield Beach who desperately need a helping hand are being turned away because our City is no longer in the Community Housing business. Because of Sylvia Poitier. Poitier's actions have had a dramatic impact on the most needy here in town. So Bob, you go right ahead and root for her.

3. Gary Lalonde. You are an ignorant fool with a 9th grade education. Kindly keep that in mind as you offer up your insightful "commentary".

I am reminded of high school, when I was in all sorts of AP classes, and the idiot stoners who thought they were cool because they rode a beat up Yamaha, would try to make themselves feel better by calling smart kids "brainiacs".

I worked for NASA. Did you?

4. Sylvia Poitier will be arrested this week. Care to make a wager? And when she is, rest assured, I will be the utterly arrogant asshole you have come to love and expect.

5. Women In Distress is about helping victims of domestic violence. It's not there to make silly cows and twats feel better about themselves. Hummm?

6. I am taking away from the good work of this blog? Kindly provide evidence as to any real world impact these comments have provided to you folks in South Florida.

Just remember Bob. Everyone is fungible. Including you.

"I laugh when I read all the crap said about me. Do you really think it has a moment's impact on my life? Trust me, it doesn't."

It took the few seconds of thought you gave to what you were going to say before you spent 10 minutes typing and drooling.

You worked for NASA? Doing what? Do you know, Sammy Shlubnut? He worked for NASA, too.

You're where you belong, Chaz - you should have made the move long ago. You now are among people who enjoy the truly nasty, personally attacking, constantly yapping mean guy who is willing to spend his life being miserable in the hope he can make others just as miserable. Play your cards right and Glenn Beck might ask you to guest host. Or, at least, to do some writing for him. You certainly have the technique down pat.

Larryboy is a private citizen. First of all, why would you be searching his public records? Secondly, you didn't just send him a private email. You published on this blog that he had a tax lien.

1) Why is that relevant?

2) Why was that necessary?

P.S. NASA? What were you training to be, a Douchetranaut? Do you have any video of you floating around at zero gravity? That would be a hoot!

What is sad is that Larryboy was probably reaching out to be a friend to him. That's how he treated him in return. Chaz grow up no one dislikes you because your "Book Smart" You're disliked because you have no clue as to how to be a decent human. being.

Aperger’s disease and social interactionThe reason social interactions with people who have Aperger’s disease seem strange is that Asperger’s causes an inability to feel empathy, lack of interest in others and an absence of emotional connection. This is confusing because Asperger’s syndrome can also cause people to have disproportionate emotional reactions, such as extreme anger, to seemingly small events.

People with Asperger’s disease often don’t pick up on social cues, such as noticing when others are bored or irritated.

He actually did publish them in the sense that he disclosed that Larryboy had a tax lien.

Pertaining to the ongoing Super Bowl cover up:

There are two issues that must be addressed. Having worked in both the private and public sectors, I fully understand the process. There is a huge problem and dilemma for BSO. The former head of IA, the one responsible for signing off on all disciplinary action has signed a fake document. This is a fact with solid evidence. The question is why was this document signed by Schnakenberg. Either he is totally incompetent and failed to read what he was signing. If that is the case, why is he a ranking officer? How many times in the past, as the head of IA, did this happen? Or did he sign the document to help his boss? If this is the case then he knowing falsified a document. Now how can he ever be trusted to tell the truth knowing that he could easily be swayed? In both scenarios, he is guilty of violating his sworn oath and could never testify in court having done this action. Every decision he makes can now be challenged and he has become worthless as a law enforcement officer. This can be brought up every time he takes official action.As far as Lamberti is concerned, this is right out the ending of the movie A Few Good Men. According to his statement, his kid was only outside of the stadium. Since that is his statement, why then the need for the documents stating that his kid was part of the BSO detail group? If the kid was in the public areas and not subject to entering any secure locations, why the documents? Why the two order? In this line of work, the father son issues are not relevant. Everyone loves their children. This was no place for a kid to be, this was a major security event. The kid should have been in the stands not tagging along with a security detail and again why the need for credentials if he was remaining in an area that did not require such credentials?Fancy words, misdirection and not answering forthright raises red flags as to what the truth really was. To those who refuse to accept what is happening because of their relationships with the sheriff, all your name calling, down playing this as trivial, and comments about this, or similar actions happened all the time by everyone, will not work and is meaningless. These two critical issues need to be addressed. Schnakenberg (and his BSO paid attorney???) will have their chance to present their case to the FDLE certification board. The sheriff will face the same board as well as the public. This is NOT going away. How many have lost their jobs, pensions under this administration? These two BSO ranking officers have opened the door for a tremendous amount of revisiting a lot of past investigations both with employees and the public.the bottom line

Kenny Rogers little early to be drinking ..I have hockey buddies in LE whom refer to Stevens as ...lets say unusual...But I can certainly guarantee that if I had the Stevens "personallity" when I went to the Feds complaining of HPD harrassment intimidation ,death threats, homicide cover up etc on five occasions they would not take me seriously and organised a sting that sent four officers to prison..As Timmy has said on many occasions on this Blog this is just a game to him (not to mention the harrassed "ex "commenters.) If he had been a " mature and serious" activist blogger his respect and results would have been entirely different ...Cmon nobody likes an arrogant person.....Chaz Stevens (Genius)

Re: Nick Lamberti

Naming your kid after Nick Navarro was a bad beginning for Junior. A 16 year old, non employee is not qualified to perform any security duty, inside/outside/anywhere. Your explanation is worse than if you admitted he took a free ride as a public citizen at taxpayers expense.

Re: Chaz Stevens

Very sad that it takes a demented wannabe gonzo pseudo journalist to even bring up the subject of political corruption in Deerfield. For all his rantings,ramblings and crazed antics, he actually accomplished something no one else would or could do. Listen to the message and ignore the messenger, if you must, but consider the possibility that his style is what brought this shit out into the sunlight, not some, by the book, citizen or LEO.

Note to Chaz. Sylvia operates out of 600 S Dixie Hwy, not 1600 S Dixie Hwy. Just in case anyone is interested enough to check out Syl's palace at this address. Built with Fed tax funded $$$$s, named after her, and is the headquarters for her enterprise. How does that work. It is a piece of work. Drive by and check it out.

Lamberti did something wrong. It could have had consequences. He lied about what he did, falsified records, lied about it again, make up a lame excuse about not really watching the game. Hellooooooooooooo! Integrity, above reproach, perception of impropriety. And we're talking about how BIG a lie it was? Little, big, it was a lie.

Hey Dumbass, Read my previous posts on the subject. I am the one who said all along it should be investigated as Official Misconduct. I even quoted the statute.

My comments on the subject are pretty consistent.

Maybe both. If documents that were relied upon by a public agency were falsified to benefit someone, then a crime was committed. The ironic thing is that Lamberti himself outlined the benefit. The kid doesn't like football (If you believe that) but he is interested in LE and following in his fathers footsteps. So gaining an inside view of a major LE operation and exposure to all of those commanders from other agancies is a bigger benefit than if he just sat and watched the game.

The other question is who falsified the docs. Were they directed to? It smells of Official Misconduct on its face. A minor case but sure looks like it to me.

Like I said, He was at the BCS game a few years ago. Remeber the explanation for the picture with Scott Rothstein? He was just working and happen to run into SR. Nick was in that same picture.

I know if I tried that shit, I would have been in a lot of trouble. We are not allowed to even have our kids in our BSO cars. How did Nick get to the event? That's just a policy violation but how can you enforce that policy to the Rank and File if you violate it?
