TOM WROBLESKI AND THE STATEN ISLAND ADVANCE VS. ERIC GARNER AND    FAMILY
 
    Tom Wrobleski, until recently the Political Editor of the multibillionaire Newhouse family-owned Staten Island Advance, where he compiled a record of political news suppression, self-censorship, biased and untruthful reporting and protecting the politically entrenched, is now the "Opinion Commentator" for a newspaper that has been understandably described by African-American Pastor Rev. Dr. Demetrius S. Carolina, Sr. of the First Central Baptist Chuirch in Stapleton, S.I. as a "controlled" newspaper, and by African-American political activist Kelvin Alexander as "The most racist paper in New York." I can see why.
    Wrobleski probably should be on the campaign staff of likely Republican candidate for Congress Daniel Donovan, the Staten Island District Attorney, who is attempting to keep secret the proceedings of the grand jury that left P.O. Daniel Pantaleo of the hook (at least temporaily).
    I am one of many people who have seen the videotape, which records what may be the first actual lynching in New York City.
    In a column headlined "Indictment shows grand jury system works", Wrobleski, citing the Brooklyn grand jury's indictment of P.O. Peter Liang in the killing of Akai Gurley, gives a clean bill of health to the entire grand jury system and its secrecy. In a moment of lucidity Wrobleski correctly states that the circumstances of the police killings of Eric Garner and Akai Gurley or not the same. He correctly anticipates, in a typically condescending fashion, that Erica Garner, Rev. Al Sharpton, et. al. will continue to protest the Staten Island's grand jury's decision not to indict Pantaleo. In contrast to the killing of Mr. Gurley in a darkened hallway in a NYC housing project, Wrobleski writes that "Garner was resisting arrest at the time of his confrontation with Pantaleo." He adds that, "Police were sweeping the area in response to complaints about criminal behavior in the neighborhood" and that "It was not Garner's first encounter with law enforcement."
 As is often the case with a journalist who is experienced in covering things up to protect what Karl Marx would call "the ruling class" (which, salaries aside, certainly often includes the police), what is important is what Wrobleski did not include in his apologia for Donovan and the grand jury, such as the unanswered question of whether Eric Garner was selling "loosies" at the time of the police attack.
   I live in rapidly gentrifying North Shore (re-named in UP FRONT News as "NoSho") and I know Tompkinsville Park quite well as I've personally on several occasions rescued a very public homeless woman named Colleen Poyerd, who has literally lived in that Park at times and been subject to some physical and sexual aggressiveness by the some of the males there who may belong to a group I call "Alcoholics Synonymous." The cops from the 120th precinct, - who have been known to protect political criminals such as Robert Cataldo, the Chief of Staff to NYS Senator Diane Savino, who literally terrorized me some years ago at my scheduled appointment with him in connection with an emergency situation when I was homeless - could easily fill their arrest quotas by locking up some of the more violent drunks who populate the park. Why did they go after Eric Garner? Did they see him selling a "loosie?" Why, with a small battallion of cops there, was it necessary to apply a chokekhold, regardless of the nomenclature euphemism ("seat belt maneuver?') Pantaleo used to, at leat temporarily, escape justice?
   Tom Wrobleski, who arguably warrants the UP FRONT News designation of "New York's (America's?) worst journalist", is among the reporters at the Advance (also known to UP FRONT News readers as "The Staten Island Retreat"), such as Rachel Shapiro, who have been pushing Governor Andrew Cuomo to hurriedly schedule the special election to fill the seat left vacant by the resigned Michael Grimm - a corrupt politician protected by Wrobleski until The NY Times broke the story on illegal campaign contributions finding their way into Grimm's possession via some Orthodox rabbis in Brooklyn.
The Advance (and Republican) push to rush the scheduling of the special election clearly motivated to help likely Republican candidate Donovan and to rush the Machine Democrats  to pick another civil rights-ignorant hack as they did in selecting Domenic Recchia, with his mob pal(s) and horrible human rights record while in the NYC Council and was exposed as such in the Daily News and my UP FRONT News, leading many African-Americans and other progressives to boycott the election, resulting in Recchia getting trounced by Grimm - who had been endorsed by the Advance anyway.
  I've sent Governor Cuomo an e-mail via Paul Duffy, his Richmond County (Staten Island) representative, urging the governor to take all the time he is legally allowed to set the date for the election. Any constituent matters can presumably be addressed by U.S. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Charles Schumer.
  What the "ruling class" house organ S.I. Advance does not want is a (presumably Democratic) candidate, not a product of the Party Machine, who will make the police killing of Eric Garner and the whitewash by the grand jury and a host of other human rights issued (e.g. taxation that discriminates against the poor, gentrification in "NoSho", political corruption in Staten Island and beyond, the corporation-fueled Chinese Communist Genocide in formerly indepedenrt and illegallly occupioed Tibet) into major campaign issues.
