Salem's Klassy Judge Richard Mori

Salem District Court Judge Richard Mori is the asshat of the day. I must seriously wonder if Judge Mori was dropped on his head as a child. You see, he appears to think that it is a good idea to allow repeat cocaine dealers to remain on the streets. Said drug dealer also has a previous arrest for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. Clearly he's not being rehabilitated by his run-ins with the law, but in fact going the other way.

Josue Santiago, of Salem, was arrested in November for selling cocaine to a Salem police officer on three different occasions. He was found with more stuffed in his pants. Santiago is an immigrant, whether legal or illegal is unclear, who was potentially facing deportation because of these charges. In steps namby pamby judge Moron, to save this scumbag's day. Assuming Santiago is a legal immigrant, there are responsibilities attached to enjoying residency here as a legal immigrant. NOT SELLING COCAINE IS AN EASY ONE!!!! Only a putz wouldn't deport him for his second drug dealing offense.

Rumors swirl that Mori and attorney O'Hare are good buddies. I'm sure that didn't color the judge's thinking though, right? Couldn't have. There was no thinking here. Mori is clearly fighting on the wrong side of the war on drugs.

I don't know about you, but I don't think that on the streets is where known drug dealers should be. Thanks a lot Judge Asshat. Maybe he is high as well.

To the Salem PD and prosecutors, good work. I'm sorry this idiot judge is ruining it for you. Please follow him home from the bars, and see if you can land him behind some.

The Salem District Court's phone number is 978-744-1167. I urge everyone to give them a call and let them know what we think of this idiot judge.

Leslie's (Klassy) Retreat

A few years back a dog park was opened at the Leslie's Retreat Park. It's a great concept that many volunteers worked very hard to make happen. Some of the execution? Pure klass.

First, when leaving the parking lot to enter the park you are met with the sign below.

Glad to see Salem is getting tough on crime, but sodomy is a little harsh.

Then, when you reach the entrance to the park, you are met with yet another barrage of signs.

What's awesome about these signs is that they are crappy laminated paper, with neon wire ties attaching them to the fence, yet everything on them is contained on the professional, metal sign you can see in the background. My guess is that all of this extra tree killing is the work of the klassy lady many of us refer to as "the beagle bitch" who likes to walk around the park with her nose in the air, acting like the place is her personal kingdom.

The final klassy move regarding this park is that when the powers that be decided to start charging an annual fee to use the park, the one change in rules that was made was that dogs no longer had to be licensed in Salem. The basic message seemed to be, "now that we want your money, out of town dogs are A-OK!" I have no problem with the fee. The money goes to park upkeep, which is good. At the same time, the rule change, when all others stayed the same, smacks of greed.

Well said!

Those who oppose the Lowes Walmart development are now complaining about hay. Awesome.

Monique Gonyea keeps it klassy!

One of two things must be true about Monique Gonyea:

1. She's an extremely, extremely prolific shoplifter who gets nabbed once in a while.


2. She's the worst shoplifter ever.

When I saw "Monique Gonyea, 28 of 286 Highland Ave" in the Salem News this week I knew I'd seen the name before. A quick search of revealed a long history of shoplifting arrests.

My favorite was this one, where she was arrested an hour after she left court for a previous shoplifting charge.

So maybe this mother of three is doing this to feed her three kids, Les Miserables style, no?

Apparently not. In her own words she does this because she's addicted to it. Not because she needs the money. I guess that's better than her previous drug addiction?? Not if you're the business owner she's ripping off today.

When will we rescue her children from an impending life of crime? When will we make her serve real jail time to break her of this addiction?

Thanks Mo, for making Salem so Klassy!
