Strye Sez Bye


Carl Strye, Jr., who is facing criminal charges as a result of his admitted theft of $8000 in gambling proceeds from Vigilance Hose, finally resigned as Nazareth's Mayor last night. It's something he should have done in April, when he was first charged.

This resignation was insisted upon by NorCo DA John Morganelli as a condition to Strye's participation in the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program. That's a special docket for first offenders in which charges are wiped clean after a successful probationary period. Morganelli also insisted on full restitution,and Strye must agree to stay out of the Mayor's race next year.

The final decision will be made by the courts.      

In his letter of resignation, submitted to the good ol' boys before the meeting, Strye refers to the theft charges as "my issue." Amazingly, he pats himself on the back for making sure that the "police department is moving in the right direction with Commissioner [Randy] Miller in charge."

Top cop Miller was undoubtedly delighted to hear this praise from an admitted thief.

That's what worries me. What direction is the police department headed in when one of its own, Officer Stephen Schleig, has been forced to sue again?

According to The Express Times, Strye was immediately replaced by John "Shame Us" Samus, in an obvious done deal. In April, when I called on Strye to resign and was repeatedly shouted down, Shame Us wanted everyone who owns real estate in Nazareth to raise their hands. Most people did. I did not.

Then he point-blank asked me, "Do you own a home?"

I don't, and he was very pleased with himself.

"Does this mean I'm a second class citizen?" I asked.

"No."

"Are you saying that only the landed gentry may speak?"

"No."

"Then what is your point?"

His only point was to shame me. I am poor. I'm part of the riff raff and need not be taken seriously. He forgot that Lance Colondo, another member of Borough Council, is also a renter.

Strye is unfortunately only one head of a Lernaean Hydra that includes the entire Borough Council. They all need to go.

In April, I called on them to resign, too.

It will take a Hercules to rid Nazareth of these self-important potentates.

Good riddance to bad rubbish. Now do something about the top-heavy police department starting with dismissing their pompous peacock commissioner.

They are all pieces of shit period-the entire council. To sit there and allow a thief as the Mayor? They are all scumbags

Hey Carl, don't break you arm patting yourself on the back on your way out the door.

You are catching a real break here pal. They may only be able to prove 8k given the short investigative period but we all know it was MUCH more than that over the years.

Enjoy your ill gotten gains you crook

A new sticker for Nazareth.... "Karma 4 Carl!"

I see the good old boy network still lives in Nazareth. Mayor to be "Shame us" believes the very top heavy police department is on the right track. What a joke! These yahoos, [council], and their police command staff have costs this borough thousands of dollars and all these jerks think the police department is on the right track. All of these arrogant self-indulging individuals got to go! Strye was first, now the rest of his posse must be next.

This whole scenario is disgusting. This is exactly why this country is in the toilet. Politicians lie, cheat, and steal but it's ok. Just make a token monetary contribution, profess your love while denying or blaming others for what you did. The da and judge will says "it's ok." Nazareth is a country full of "sheople."

Word around the firehouse is that much more than 8,000 dollars was stolen. What a shame that tens of thousands of dollars will not go the coffers of the firehouse and wound up in someones pockets.

So 1 "hometown boy" is out and another "hometown boy" takes his place???? No wonder nothing ever changes, it's one big ole boys club in Nazareth. It makes me cringe when I hear the council had no comment on his resignation, shows you where they stand!

Anonymous said...

Wait a minute, I thought Carl was innocent on these allegations????? What are his supporters saying now, they insisted he did nothing wrong so why resign and apply for ARD? You would think if he was innocent he would welcome a trial to clear his name. I notice in his resignation letter that he never apologizes for stealing anything, just continues to pat himself on the back for all his good deeds!

Heavy Heart??? Really Carl, is that from the stress of lying about all of this and getting caught? If you didn't take the money why didn't you take a trial and clear all this up? Your supporters should be ashamed of themselves, they have tarnished their own reputations.

To the cocksucker author of this blog

You are disbarred because you cannot comprehend what the law is, so your "anon" self commentary means nothing.

Carl can walk away with the guarantee that he will always be able to serve his community at a time in the future. Those on the inside know what happenned, and that is all that really matters.

The cost of trial on its own is more than the cost of restitution , so shut your cum filled dirt trap, or move out of town.

9:36 AM - Another example of one of Carl's supporters, this is exactly how they act!

Why not share the truth of what "really happened"

Carl Strye is a good man who mad a LOT of money via good business savvy and hard work at this car wash machine sales gig. When the storm clears Carl will be back in office in the town he bleeds for, whether it is as Mayor or councilman will be up to him and his supporters for now he will heal with his family and focus on faith, business, and health.

The anon poison posse horde on this "blog" are revolting and clearly only become satisfied when a person of influence is knocked down where they can swarm and attack like a gaggle of rabid lemmings seeking revenge on a fallen majestic great snowy owl on the tundra.

Carl's contributions to the restructuring of the Naz PD were essential, the purges of lazy unqualified teat suckers were his lasting legacy and trust me good officers like Chief Trachta value his service.

HOME OWNER on Main St.

This is Tricia Mezzacappa, who thankfully does not live anywhere in Nazareth and has no idea that Trachta and Strye hate each other. She is an adjudged defamer who lacks the personal integrity to ID herself, but her phraseology ("Poison posse")gives her away. Incidentally, lemmings do not attack great snowy owls. Crazy Mezzacappa, stay off this blog.

All you people do not even know Carl. You just are feeding into this scumbag O'hares ego. Nazareth lost a good leader. Someone who actually cares about the Borough. I am sure everyone on this post is so perfect. Never did anything wrong. Carl will be missed by a lot of people who understand what happens in clubs. The books were and numbers were changed to pay the bartenders. Not Carl. The Vigilance Hose is in turmoil because fag Keenhold and Mr. Attitude Hess don't know how to run a club. The Hose will be an empty building in two years! Maybe Dan will build a home for his daughter with the profits. Why not, he built one for his son with fire company money. I am sure that will come out one day. Keenhold = thieves! Remember the Jacks! All that poker machine machine money went right into their pocket. This is a known fact. Good luck Carl. Hope you will runagain to lead our town.

It is entirely proper to insist on government officials who are not admitted thieves.

9:36 is yet another cRaZy Tricia comment.

10:28, You just accused the Keenholds of some serious stuff. Why don't you sign your name?

Sorry but you can't serve your community and steal from it at the same time.... The fact that anyone is forced to resign to join an ARD program, well forgiveness is great by family and friends who should be there for him but why on earth would any council bring back that potential issue to the community.

Attacking any religious group on here seems unrelated, its a blog entitled to ones opinion leave it at that.

Family and friends will say you don't know this person which is fine, you don't really know someone after all look at how many people are shocked....

"Officer Schleig" forced to sue again? Come on no one is forced to sue its a choice! Look at all this drama at Nazareth PD how many others have left and not sued, if you are not happy leave and make a difference in a different community. Stop draining the Borough.

More than one person has commented on your hate blog's poison posse buddy. You know that. You and the sticker goons think you are the backbone of Nazareth. Why not go have another Slurpee and some cigarettes.

Heard that West Easton wants to build a public works garage and Salt shed about 100 feet from the Ridge St. retard's slovenly coop. Imagine the damage IT might do to borough property. Hope they budget for 24 hour surveillance coverage...

Good afternoon Sir or Madam. Please know that I feel you do not deserve that title but I will take the high road and not dabble with the likes of your kind. You have the right to speak your mind, you have the right to play puppet to a disbarred attorney, but you do not have the legal right to speak on my behalf. Do you have proof that Carl's children are "embarrassed." That sounds like libel to me. In case you are wondering libel is illegal. The following in my case against you occurred. Here are the facts. Are you guilty? Your statement about me was false. You harmed my reputation by associating me in this garbage. You published your comments about me for the public to see. Your comment called out me specifically and you had clear intent. Shameful. I hope karma finds you well. This is a clear and firm notice to never speak on my behalf again. You may hide behind your anon cowardly post but for me I will delightfully sign my name. I'm not afraid, ashamed, or willing to let you, or any of your other anon spineless jellyfish peers ever speak for me. Like me and all of us we will be judged by our Maker until then I will pray for you to have a kind heart.

Libel defined as-
False
Harmed your reputation
Published to at least one other person
About you specifically
Made with some degree of fault and intention
