Citizens DO have a voice in their community, contrary to what a local West Bend attorney might think.
Curtsy to Dan Kleinman, SafeLibraries:
Someone in Holyoke, MA, is getting away with murder. Getting away with murder is an idiom for not being punished for what would bring punishment to others. In the Holyoke Public Library, someone is getting away with child pornography, and in my opinion, it is library director Maria Pagan. Might it also be the library board itself for covering up a cover up?
Residents again feel safe to bring their kids to the Maple Street library, but aren't sure the director, the one accused of a cover up, should go unpunished."The first thing she should've done is bring it to somebody's attention and that should've been the police," says Brenda Cruz.However, the library, admits no wrong.
But your opinion is more important. See if you agree that Maria Pagan and perhaps the library board itself is getting away with murder. Watch the CBS 3 Springfield (WSHM) video newscast here:
"Holyoke Library Bolsters Security Post Porn Incident,"by Matthew Campbell, CBS 3 Springfield, 21 July 2009.
By the way, Holyoke citizens, congratulations on getting Internet filters. But according to the librarian who outed the library director, the library director claimed opposition to the USA PATRIOT Act as why she failed to act.
Ditto to Holyoke citizens. Way to go!
