Dayton needs new leadership yesterday
I just watched the video of a stabbing of a student with a pencil.
The room was totally out of control.
Next I hear, the school is telling students if they take their cell phones out to record things like this- or share the video, they will be expelled.
Because, of course, the First Amendment doesn’t mean anything to Libby Lolli.
Then, an unconfirmable but reliable source says an assistant principal at a DPS high school was allowed to resign, after being caught engaging in a homosexual relationship with a student. There are photos and videos on phones. The Dayton Police Department investigated. This person is now teaching in another state.
If this is true, the Schools and the DPD have failed to properly report a crime, and other students are at risk of more of the same.
Teachers are being told if they talk about the failures to maintain discipline in the buildings- they’ll be reprimanded. When does it stop?
I’m also in possession of video and reports of an inmate getting stomped for over 6 minutes in the Montgomery County Jail. I was denied another incident report because it’s in the process of an investigation.
Covering things up isn’t a solution, it’s an invitation to a huge lawsuit.
Are these people totally oblivious to what is going on at The Ohio State University over a 20 year old coverup? Or, the scandal in Chicago about sex abuse of students that was unreported, or what the Catholic Church has been through over the last 25 years?
I can’t run my business and protect the children of this city. You elected a prosecutor that doesn’t prosecute. You elected commissioners that don’t protect their citizens. A sheriff who can’t run a jail. You elected a school board that won’t govern a dangerously incompetent superintendent.
The Dayton Daily News and the local TV stations are absolutely incompetent at digging into these kinds of cases. If it’s more than a car crash, house fire, or drug bust- they can’t get their tiny brains wrapped around the bigger implications of this kind of gross mismanagement of this region by our inbred “Monarchy of Montgomery County.” The FBI isn’t interested in more tips, because they can’t even get to the bottom of what they’ve started.
I have information about high placed assistants to elected officials who are steering public contracts in exchange for future promises of a job after their impending retirement. The shit just doesn’t stop rolling my way.
Wright State is still confused about how to manage foreign students, even after paying a million dollar fine for screwing up on the H1B.
Their “Chief Information Officer” lies about an RFP he issued, calling it a request to hire an ad agency, when in fact it was an RFP for media buying services only. There is no score sheet- but, they picked the local people. Imagine that?
For the record, the difference between a media buying and creative services is something a first year marketing student ought to know, but, at WSU you can get paid 6 figures plus and not know the difference.
I’m tired. I can’t do it all. And this is just for starters. This is just what’s come across my desk in the last 3 weeks.
Remember, I had to go to court last week. The defendants lied in court. I now have proof of it. Will the prosecutors and the library director be put in jail? Will the Library director be forced to resign? Will the prosecutors lose their law licenses? Will the judge do anything?
I’m tired. You should be too.
Am tired of it as well. Similar events happened to me and 100% of my neighbors who were employed at Wrong State. All of us screwed over. In one case, the Dean of the Medical School was caught lying to a federal magistrate. Still kept her job. The corruption is so widespread that it will never end.The same assholes keep getting placed into power all over the Dayton area. Dave, for what time you have left on this earth–and I hope it is several decades–get out and move somewhere where you can be appreciated and importantly, enjoy life. The town has it in for you as it does for anyone who stands up to the corruption. I speak from my heart and only want good things to come your way.
I commented initially on your social media post and I’m copying and pasting that comment here. To give context my comment was a reply to someone’s comment that the students filming and the parents sharing on social media and to the news should be penalized. I sent it to WHIO. What is DPS going to do? Put me in timeout? I’m not the only parent who submitted the video and if my child or myself receives any retaliation for being honest I will SUE and I’d be thrilled to do so. I’d like to sue them for all the tax money we pay to them and for transportation costs since I’ve had to open enroll elsewhere, for the therapy appointments, for the psych evaluation after the trauma my child endured and for the stress of it all. I’m sickened that there was a whole culture that allows things to not be stopped before it’s detrimental to kids. The kids are allowed their phones. What is going on in the buildings that is so outrageous that students are being told they can’t record or share? My child was a student at Stivers. It was a horrid crap show of bullying and sexual harassment and classism. I thought there is no way it’s this bad, it couldn’t be this trashy, they must not understand, maybe my child is misunderstanding. I kept going to meetings, I went to conferences. I spoke to staff, I spoke to administrators, I spoke to school board members. My child was told East Dayton white girls always have problems at Stivers because they just can’t get along. I was told well their urban kids in an urban community so we can’t really expect them to behave otherwise. I was also told the “urbaness” meant staff was allowed to cut up and act inappropriate with students to try to reach them. I was told the students who harassed my child were “athletic star students”. I was told they would handle it. I was told oh kids will be kids. Then I watched staff harass my kid and overlook continued… Read more »
Heidi Rae I believe you DPS was terrible back in the 80’s and 90’s so I can imagine how awful they are today. Don’t say they are not teaching your child they will harass your child ~ some of the staff were mean and hateful.
“Dayton public cancels classes after students already picked up by buses”
Another red-letter day for DPS.
