Tales of Trachta: What is a UNB or UNIT?

The second matter I told Nazareth Borough Council about yesterday concerns a code that Chief Thomas Trachta and part-time police officer Dan Troxell allegedly developed for communications on the horn.

"Hey, there's a UNB at Main and Belvidere."

"Watch out for the UNIT in the circle."

According to Google, UNB is the Universidade de Brasilia. But according to other police officers, UNB is an unwanted n---er in the Borough, and UNIT is an unwanted n---er in Town.

Very funny, isn't it?

The common perception is that Nazareth is the most bigoted community in the Lehigh Valley. I feel pretty bad when I hear this because I know it's untrue. But this hurts Nazareth's image.

Though this is what I was told by other officers, even I have a hard time believing anyone could be this stupid.

I told Council last night that if they don't take control of the police department, the District Attorney might look into this matter. His Investigating Grand Jury can do a lot more with what these police officers have told me than I can do here.

Let me also tell you that Borough Council listened attentively while I and others spoke, including Trevor Stickers Gehret. President Dan Chiavaroli has forwarded my complaints to the Law Committee. Mayor Carl R. Strye Jr. told me he is investigating the complaints I made about Officer Eric "light this fucker up" Schwab, but he had several police matters that actually have more urgency at this time. I can believe him.

The good news is that, thanks to the 108 signatures that my Fire Trachta petition garnered in just one day, MoveOn is considering paying up to $1,000 for Trevor Gehret's legal fees.

Incidentally, Chief Trachta had two opportunities to respond to my attacks last night. He chose to remain silent. Privately, he had told Gehret that I am a "liar" and a "drunk." But when directly confronted last night, the bully had nothing to say.

Gun stealing would be killers are hero's in O'Hare's world. If bloggers had to have license like lawyers, O'Hare would lose that as well.

What a pile of crap this is. I hope Troxell sues. O'Hare is "technically" flat broke for now but if he comes into the crazy chicks house Troxell gets it. Nice!

I don't doubt such a code exists.

My brother got a ticket (in another state) that he fought. He got the recording of the cop talking to the dispatcher. In it he was referred to as a, "BPS" and a, "Blue Plate Special that looks like a big tipper."
The case was dismissed.

All the "UNITs" and "UNBs" should attend the next council meeting.

Nazareth got a real problem on its hands

Where there is smoke their is fire. Some of these things O'Hare brings to our attention might seem minor on the surface. However, police officers using codes to identify "races or classes of people" and submitting reports that aren't an accurate accounting of a police incident is very important.
Keep digging O'Hare. There is lots more.

Bernie,

You ARE a liar and a drunk. Currently you may be in recovery, but a leopard can't change his spots...I speak from personal experience as a liar and a drunk myself...

However, I am not plagued by denial and thin skin, as you are....

Nazareth is not alone in having bully cops and police chiefs who routinely profile innocent passers by.

Township, Borough and City Lehigh Valley leaders need to learn from Nazareth and its serious mistake it has on it's hands.

Then you are lying when you call O'Hare a liar?

Are you still drinking?

Anonymous said...

Not drinking OR lying right now, but I have a history that I must forever acknowledge...

O'Hare seems to think the past can be whitewashed and ignored, but he will always be a liar and a drunk at heart..he also seems to have a profound persecution complex as well as a deep, unnatural attraction toward young men with handcuffs...

@7:43 I see. You are also a homophobe, as well as a drunk and a liar.

I see. You can't read at an adult level... Carry on....

Who on earth would accuse O'Hare of being a liar? Oh, that's right... the courts....

"dishonesty, fraud, deceit, misrepresentation, unauthorized activity, forgery, cover-up, conduct that is prejudicial to the administration of justice, illegal conduct, and moral turpitude."

And I see you are a troll. Carry on.

This story has nothing to do with me. It should be a simple matter to confirm.

Sounds like the mayor politely told you to pound sand.

Your petition went over like a lead balloon.

There is no question that Nazareth is the most bigoted, small-minded community in the Lehigh Valley. I grew up nearby, but in reality worlds away. It wasn't until I moved there that I saw first-hand how they earned the well-deserved reputation.

What does this have to do with UNIT/ UNIB and O'Hare's accusations? Do you think he's lying? It should be easy to clear up. Just ask officers and review recordings of police radio calls. Pretty simple.

Having lived in the LV all my life, thankfully never in Nazareth, but working there, driving there, and dating people from there.....nothing I've read in these posts sounds implausible (that which is not already factually proven, that is) HOWEVER I would say - that if they did use such radio codes with any regularity, that should be VERY EASY to prove. Once tipped off, it should have been easy for you to record them yourself until you caught some instances, plus there are many websites out there in scanner-hobbyist land that routinely record ALL radio traffic...surely some records exist, then, of this?

CAN you prove it? I'm asking sincerely, out of curiosity. It seems it'd be so easy to prove it that you would almost have to be able to, if it were true....?

Bernie, why don't you sell advertising? This is scintillating stuff. I've been here more than PoliticsPA lately. I would buy some. Seriously.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Fensty, It depends on what you mean by proof. If it means do I have copies of audio tapes, the answer, is No. If it means do I know of reliable sources who heard these two using those terms, the answer is yes.

Anonymous said...

Reliable sources.

Who can't trust check stealers and drug abusers and don't forget would be murders. Fine gentlemen all.

Fensty said...

Bernie (if I may...) I wish, for your own credibility's sake, that you had waited to divulge this until you did have, in hand, actual audio recordings.

See, I do not actually doubt you/your sources. It's so totally in character for these persons, and unfortunate as it may be, the (IMO) deserved reputation of Nazareth as a community with entrenched bigotry.

But as another anonymous person has already pointed out - 'credible sources' are subject to skepticism or outright dismissal.....audio recordings would have been ironclad and impossible to refute.

So at this point, obviously, use of those terms has stopped...and unless someone can scrounge up some old recordings on one of those scanner-enthusiast sites (I am afraid I don't actually use any of those, I only know that such things exist....) I suspect this will be treated as another 'unfounded accusation' on your part.

I wish that were not the case as something that would have been so easy to prove, and wave repeatedly in the mayor/council's faces, would have been very effective....

Bernie O'Hare said...

Fensty, Thank you for your concern about my credibility and for suggesting i should have waited until I had audio recordings. I did not for these reasons: 1) My sources are concerned police officers, so I place great weight on what they say; and 2) I wanted to end the practice as soon as I heard about it definitively.

If the Mayor does investigate this issue, and I believe he will,and does it thoroughly and without Trachta looking over his shoulder, e will hear the same things i heard.

We have different philosophies I suppose, had I heard such a thing was going on, I would definitely have given them enough rope to hang themselves by letting it continue long enough to secure audio recording...if it went on for a few more days in the meantime, what of it?

Instead, well, even if it's police officers themselves who directly tell the mayor.....seems like that's still the definition of hearsay, isn't it? It might carry weight in terms of spurring the mayor to some kind of action, but it will never in and of itself be actionable.

Ah well. I will watch with interest how it continues to develop...I believe you are doing a good thing, so good luck!

This chief racially harrased me last year.i filled out a complaint and was ignored.i defended myself against my girlfriend's x who illegally entered my home and assaulted my girlfriend.i had people who saw everything.i drug him out of my house and on to my porch,where i stopped him from coming in again with force.the cops didnt interview them,didnt arrest the guy that left the scene.i tried to make a statement.the cops blew me off for a week.when i did show up to finally talk to someone,they charged me with assault.i said i had wittnesses. They said they didnt care.i beat him up so badly they had to charge me.Then the chief compared me to george zimmerman.racially profiling me because i was spanish.I asked for a lawyer 3 times for my arraingment and they denied me my civil right.i filled a complaint the next day and have heard nothing since.that was in august.the cops tried to send me to state prison.i took a plea deal that resulted in a fine and no record.i told the judge at the hearing i was innocent but took a deal to save money.now i am working on a lawsuit against the police station.this just proves i was right.
