The mission of the Montgomery Township Police Department is to achieve and maintain a highly professional organization that affirmatively promotes, preserves and delivers a feeling of security, safety and quality services to members of the residential, commercial, and industrial community.


As far as the mission statement,… Actions speak louder than words, and the actions of the Montgomery Township Police Department speak volumes. Their words are meaningless when compared with their actions over the past year. And what they ARE NOT SAYING, is far more indicative of their tolerance and support of the harassment directed at me. Not quite the feeling of safety and security that I have enjoyed as a resident of Montgomery Township for over 20 years. What Changed?

Well, what changed?
Why would the police protect the identity of someone who is committing a crime against you?
Why would the police not investigate a criminal act basing their decision on the information of an unidentified reliable third party?
Why would they then proceed to act on information provided by that reliable third party without question?
Why would they visit your home, discuss your divorce for 2 hours and then have you involuntarily committed?
Why would they neglect to show you the picture of your computer screen they were given by the reliable third party?
When they proudly showed the same picture to your brother who arrived at the police station BEFORE they transported you to MCES…
When they neglected to mention that you had not provided them with this picture,
….Were they trying to convince your brother that you were insane?
……..for thinking someone was watching your computer?
…………when they had the picture there?
…………….provided by someone who was apparently watching my computer?
Why knowing all of that did they still proceed to have you involuntarily committed?
And when your case was reviewed by doctors, you were released after 2 days because there were inconsistencies that were clearly evident.

Yet, you attempted to look on the bright side of the most nightmarish experience you could imagine knowing the information about the person who caused this horrible experience to happen would be documented by the police in their report.





And when you accepted that position and investigated further to get the information regarding the persons behind the nightmare, the police would go on to treat you with disrespect and disdain. And as such the person or persons they were truly protecting, or covering for, were assured that they could now do anything to you and get away with it completely.

And it gets worse… and worse… and worse… but the cover-up is far more important than the man they are destroying. After all, it will affect a lot of people if they get caught. You are alone. THEM vs YOU You are clearly outnumbered, you lose!

If that was a simple realization of a disturbing fact of life the story would end here. BUT NO, THEM seems to have realized that the police can be a tremendous asset when you are illegally harassing someone. THEM waits less than 2 weeks to try out their new powers… it’s successful. There’s no stopping THEM.

Everyone protects the ones that they can protect. It’s a truly human and natural thing to do. We see it every day. When law enforcement protects one of their own to conceal a crime, the problem grows… and when the criminal actions continue, the problem grows… the only fear they have is exposure… and the little harassing actions begin… and everyone is asking the same question.


July 15, 2007 – Report of Computer Intrusion and Discovery of Illegal Surveillance Software
Officer Gerry Dougherty
Officer Dougherty comes to the house in response to the phone report. He listens to the situation and let’s me know that there is really little that can be done about the issue by Montgomery Township Police. As I had told him that Microsoft suggested I contact the FBI, he suggests I do as they instructed.

August 8, 2007 – Police arrive under the pre-tense of following up on the computer surveillance
Officer Gerry Dougherty
11:10 AM Officer Dougherty arrives ‘unexpectedly’ and indicates the he is following up on the computer issue. I invite him in and we sit in my kitchen and discuss the way the computer software has destroyed my business, how it further has messed up my banking and finances, how I had proof of the programs installation yet the software company is still denying it., how my son disappeared about a month prior and I hadn’t heard from him at all and his calls were being blocked by my wife, how his mother was using him to make me feel bad, how the day before was his 16th birthday and he hadn’t returned any phone calls, how I had just returned from the bank where I found that some electronic payment transactions are processed in a way that could erase any trace of their existence by simply entering a reversing entry within the same period which explained my bill payments seemed to be un-done somehow and activity had disappeared without any trace, and how I had written on my computer at 10:30 AM regarding my hard disk which was being crashed yet again that “It is time for her to die. thank you for the software that made it possible.”
I then indicated that I assumed the message was the likely reason that he had shown up, but was curious as to how he knew. The computer was old. It had no network card. It had no modem. It was not connected to any network. It wasn’t capable of transmitting the message anywhere. Yet, he arrived 40 minutes after I typed the entry.

I further indicated that I selected the words carefully when I wrote the message knowing that the person who was spying on me may become alarmed and reveal themselves. The file was never saved, printed, emailed, stored or transmitted in any way. I had used multiple fonts sizes and a resized window so that the screen would have subtle identifying characteristics that likely wouldn’t be duplicated if the file was re-created to set me up. Truth be told, I really didn’t expect the ‘test’ to produce any result for all those reasons. Yet, Officer Dougherty arrived and we had just talked for hours about an issue which Montgomery Township Police had told me they could do little about.

I offered to show him the screen. I had already been accused of enough ridiculous things through the summer. I realized that the message on the screen could be misinterpreted and twisted. While I didn’t mind that Officer Dougherty would see it, he had misrepresented the reason for his visit. Though I have known him since high school, he wasn’t being completely honest with me. That didn’t make sense. I also had nothing to hide. I had done nothing wrong. If it was to be interpreted as a threat, wouldn’t it have had to have been spoken, delivered, executed or presented to the ‘threatened’ in some form in order to make it a valid threat?

Interesting Plot Line…
Late Last Night(1999)
Emilio Estevez, Steven Weber
Dan and his wife split, so he leaves for the night to let her pack up her belongings. He calls his friends, but they all refuse to go out with him because their wives won’t allow them to. As a last resort, he calls his old friend, Jeff, to go out on the town. Everything bad that could happen to a dude in one night happens to Dan, thanks to the situations Jeff gets him into.
One Scene Late in the film…
After being arrested, Dan recognizes the officer fingerprinting him as the man who was picking up a transvestite hooker earlier. Dan tells him that he won’t tell anyone as long as he’s let go. The officer walks him down the hall past the holding cell, Dan thinks he’s home free. The officer brings him into an office and handcuffs him to a chair. He’s about to see the Police Psychiatrist, who won’t believe a thing he says.

As Gerry and I went into the office we walked around to the back of the desk. I sat down and turned on the screen. As soon as the desktop came up, I immediately shut the window which contained the message. I didn’t save it. I was going to show it to him. His split second peek would be corroborative data which would allow him to connect the computer with whatever reason he had for stopping by that morning. His peek would be enough for him to identify that he indeed had seen the reason he had been sent to my home. It would be enough for him to connect with what the person showed or described for him that prompted the visit. Since March I had been dealing with all of the hassles caused by this program and the people using it, the situation was going to be resolved. I could get back to my life.

Gerry and I then went back to the kitchen, where he told me that he was concerned because he noticed how emotional I was when speaking about the divorce. I told him I appreciated that and would likely find someone to talk through the betrayal and damage with once the divorce was resolved. We were married for 20 years and she had alienated my oldest son away from me. The last time Gerry had seen Colin was at a hearing the year before for underage drinking. When Colin turned 18, he suddenly needed stricter guidance and parenting, his mother was undermining any parenting effort.

Gerry offered to take me to find some ‘help’. I responded telling him that I’m good, and I was looking forward to having this finally resolved. I told him I really appreciated his concern, would handle seeking assistance in dealing with the emotional issues myself. At that point he called or radio’d into the station and the tone changed. He was now insisting I go with him. I didn’t want to be unreasonable, but that wasn’t quite on my plan for the afternoon. No matter how politely I turned down his offer, he wasn’t having it. It was at this point that I realized that it wasn’t over. It was about to become much much worse.

At his insistence, and under threat of being taken forcibly, I conceded to go with him. I needed to go to the bathroom and wanted to change into long pants as I expected any office would be cold. He said no. I then indicated that he was being very unreasonable and I went up to change. He insisted on following me, watching me pee, and change clothes and close up the house for the dog. I gathered the hard discs from the computers as I didn’t want them left behind for the person who was now aware that they were caught to come and take. A backup officer arrived? What was going on here?

Gerry left immediately with my backpack with the discs inside and I went on to the police station with the other officer. I had called my brother to let him know what was going on and asked him to run over to the township building to pick up my backpack.

At the police station Gerry put me in an interrogation room, and indicated it was a courtesy as opposed to having me in a cell. Holy shit. This was not feeling right, the feeling of being set up was overwhelming. I had my cell phone and I made a few calls to people, including Ed Weideman. In my message to Ed, I was asking him to run over and straighten them out. Let them know what Sonya was doing to intentionally stress me out. I imagine I was in the interrogation room for about a half-hour or more waiting for Gerry to return.

The truth was on my side. They completely revealed themselves to the police. They turned themselves in.

Gerry presented the 302 paperwork and read it aloud. I disagreed with several of the lines he used but was alarmed at his mis-quoting a metaphor which I had told him I used the day before in a conversation with my lawyer. I pointed to it on the page and told him it was completely misrepresented in the paragraph.

We were then off to MCES. Stopped at Burger king en route. I was confident that I’d have no reason to be kept in Norristown. I’d go and tell them what was happening and that it was now resolved because the persons responsible had called the police to report me, and thus indicated their involvement directly to the police. Gerry and I went inside, he handed them some paperwork, they told me to have a seat in the lobby. And Gerry left.

I met with a woman who was rather rude. She didn’t introduce herself. She did a few memory type tests. She asked why I was there. It lasted about 15 minutes then she left without a word. Her exit was odd, but so was her entrance. She was the least cordial doctor I had ever encountered. I waited for close to an hour for some indication that I could call my brother John and get a ride back home. But that was not what happened. When I asked the attendant/receptionist about calling my brother, she casually indicated that the doctor indicated I should be kept there. When I told her that it was a mistake she indicated the doctor had already left, there was no possible way for me to go home that night.
I only remember dropping to the floor sobbing. It was a level of frustration and despair that I had never imagined. There was no explanation of how this could be happening. Yet it was. And there was nothing that could be done about it. It was uncontrollable. You were just involuntarily committed… and you don’t even know why.

I don’t mean that in the psychological sense. I didn’t know why because they had informed the doctor that I intended to blow up the local mall. You were locked up on that mis-quoted metaphor which was made into a single statement.

Within the next hour you would talk to your brother on the phone and additionally find out they had shown him the screen shot of your computer with the message on it. This was done while you were waiting in the interrogation room at the police station. As they neglected to indicate who had provided it to them. He thought I had provided it. He said when they showed it to him it was done to demonstrate to him that his brother needed help. “Look what he wrote.”

My brother John returned to the police station where the picture was no longer available. The screen shot existence was denied. And another picture of my office was shown to him. He described that picture as having a strangeness to it.

August 22, 2007 – Police Escorted Raid of the House
Two unidentified officers
It had been arranged that it would be coordinated with the lawyers when Sonya would come for items from the house, and that she would additionally provide a list of items. She goes directly to the Police. She tells them that she needs to get her items. The police call to see if I am home. I inform them that it was agreed that it would be pre-arranged. I would prefer it not be right then and there.

The police arrive anyway. They were just told that she is violating the agreement between our attorneys. I let the police in to discuss the issue. They immediately turn and open the door to Sonya. When she is asked for the list she doesn’t have it. The boys come in and clean out their clothes into garbage bags. She complains that she needs into the safe and I have to open it because she can’t figure it out. Meanwhile, there is a mad grab going on with no one keeping track of anything and assets were not to be touched according to the order that morning. Both boys are being put in the middle of this by her and responding as if I am doing something to them. After 30 minutes the police come to realize they’ve been had. On the way out the door, Sonya pulls out a list from her pocket. Had she provided it upfront, then she would have only been able to grab the list.

October 20, 2007 – Police called to provide escort into the house
Two unidentified officers
In accordance with to Agreed Order of September 6, 2007, Sonya picked up furniture and belongings listed but wanted more. She wanted inside the home. The Agreed Order grants me exclusive use and occupancy of the house.

When police respond to her call, I explain that the day is about the delivery of the items. It is not about negotiation. She had received everything in accordance with the agreement. Additionally I point out that as I have exclusive and occupancy of the home, she has no right to enter and is not welcome.

Earlier that week I had heard that she was planning to take far more than what was listed, she was disappointed because the items were already outside the home when she arrived and her team had no reason to enter the house or attempt to take additional items.

December 2007 – Cell Phone Hacked
As I am aware that the police are not interested in investigating anything which will potentially lead to the resolution of the computer surveillance. I report to them that my cell phone has been hacked and that I have information which will connect it to the computer surveillance. I do it only because someone in law enforcement should minimally be aware of it. If they don;t know about it, it is more difficult for them to ignore it.

February 2008 – False Identity Theft Report
On February 2, 2008 Sonya made a false Identity Theft report to Upper Gwynedd Police. This was done at the direction of her lawyer, Valerie Angst. Apparently she had noticed that personal financial data was available on the internet and was accusing me of setting up the theft of her identity.

On February 6, 2008, Sonya told me about the page, however she neglected to mention she had called police. I removed the page and the data to which it pointed.

On February 7, 2008, The data was oddly made available again, AND published to Google by someone who should know better – the CEO of Sunbelt Software. It was far too suspicious. I secured the data again.
February 2008 – Web Sites Hacked To Cover Up Their Identity Theft Setup

On February 9, 2008, I called Sonya to offer to pay for an Identity Theft Protection Service as the data had been made available somehow. Sonya then indicated that she had been told that wasn’t necessary. It was at this point that she revealed that she had reported the data to the police the week before. When asked why she didn’t just call me directly to tell me it was there, she said her attorney told her to contact the police to report it. I told her I was tired of these criminal actions by her and her attorney. It was obvious that she had set this whole thing up. I reminded her that I have the statistics which are available to report access to the web site. It indicates that her attorney had been to the web site – and that unlisted page several times in the prior weeks, and that many of her friends had been there as well. I rescinded my off for Identity theft Protection.

Within an hour my web site domain was under attack, all statistics reports, data and programs were being corrupted. Additionally I found that the Error pages, that should have been returning a simple error report, were each reporting the data that was on the reported page with the financial data.

I secured the web site, and locked it down so that there was very limited access to the data, through a ‘back door’. the direct normal method of access was closed. Had the normal method of access been left open, it would have shut down ALL of the web sites under the primary domain. My few remaining clients have suffered enough through all of this harassment. Shutting them down would be an additional hardship they shouldn’t have to deal with.

I notified Lt Richard Peffall of this incident, as he was already looking into my ‘situation’ at the request of the DA.

Nothing happened, and then later in February when I began getting notices and calls that were indicative of Identity Theft, I contacted Lt Peffall and he instructed me to contact Montgomery Township Police.

Montgomery Township Police called and told me they would only investigate it if the credit cards were used locally. They not only didn’t care that I had all of the information regarding who had caused it, but I additionally had the information about 3 specific incidents where there was enough information to track the crime back to the person responsible. The officer indicated that he wasn’t interested in that information and if I didn’t have any local examples he was hanging up the phone. And he did.

March 2008 – Telephone call with Chief Brady
I contact Chief Brady as I have come home several times in the past weeks and noticed that someone has been in the house while I was out. Doors are locked which hadn’t been locked intentionally. Furniture has been moved and not put back in the same exact spot. Even the bathroom had been used and while no ‘floater’ was left, there was a skid mark on the toilet bowl. And the sink and countertop in that bathroom had water all over. As I live alone, and no one had been to the house, the only explanation was that someone was aware of my schedule and was entering the house when I was out. I mentioned to him that I was usually home all the time, but I had been rehearsing for Jesus Christ Superstar in Trenton two days a week. I never thought it necessary to keep my schedule a secret, Oddly enough, there were a few calls and text messages from Colin while I was en route to or at rehearsals directly asking where I was. Colin asking wasn’t suspicious to me in the least, well at that time it wasn’t suspicious.

March 10, 2008 @ 8:47PM Colin txt’d “Where r u?”
March 10, 2008 @ 8:48PM I replied “SUPERSTAR”

March 2007 – Car Theft
In February while Sonya was setting up the Identity Theft issue, I asked her to transfer the titles to our cars. She initially agreed, then refused. As the insurance bill was coming up in March, it would make sense to transfer the titles soon.

Instead Sonya refused to return phone calls, and refused to anything about the insurance for the car. While I was covering the insurance for the car I was driving titled in her name, SHE WAS REFUSING to do like wise for the car titled in my name that she allowed our son to drive. As the deadline approached, I realized that this was yet another way for her to “hinder me financially’. I would have to pay the insurance for the car, because she would have Colin take the car to State College and not reveal it’s location.

With no other alternative, I contacted Montgomery Township Police to report the car as stolen. I think it is considered stolen, if it is titled in your name. taken without your permission, and you are prevented from knowing it’s location. Montgomery Township Police indicated they did not want to get involved and that it was a civil matter.
March 22, 2008 – Police called by a neighbor – Robbery in Progress (click for pictures / click for details)
Unidentified officer(s)

George Kasinkas is alerted by one of the neighborhood kids that it looks like my home is being robbed. He immediately contacts police. Police respond in 40 seconds. Police are informed that the front door was drilled. They are further informed that even though the front door locks had been drilled, access was through the back sliding glass doors. Police are aware that I am not at home. Police are informed that Ed Weideman, a former township police officer is assisting. Police do nothing to stop the robbery. Police leave the scene in under 5 minutes. Neighbors who are stunned at the non-response of the police, contact my brother John who lives in the area. The entire robbery was completed in under 30 minutes.
March 23, 2008 – Police called when I discover the Robbery at around 3AM (click for pictures / click for details)
Unidentified officer(s)

Minutes before arriving home, I pick up a voicemail from my brother alerting me to the robbery of the house. Upon arriving home, I discover that the house has been broken into, robbed and ransacked. Additionally, the dog had been poisoned.

Police arrive and are invited inside to see what I arrived home to find. They inform me that officers had been called to the house earlier and that Sonya had been here with a crew of people, trucks and cars. They inform me that she had drilled the lock on the front door, but entry was gained through the back sliding glass door.

When asked why she was not stopped from robbing the house, the officer responded that they did not wish to get involved in a domestic matter but countered asking if Sonya’s name was still on the deed to the home. I inform them that the divorce has not been finalized, however an Agreed Order of September 6, 2007 grants me exclusive use and occupancy of the home and prevents access by Sonya.

They ask to see the agreement. When I show them the agreement, they comment that it appears to have been written in crayon and that it can’t be a real agreement. When I show them the judge’s signature, they indicate that they were unaware of it’s existence. This same document was shown to the officer on October 20, 2007, when Sonya was refused access to the home and contacted police.

The officers go further to indicate that if her name is on the deed they have no reason to be expected to restrict her access to the home. I ask them if she presented a copy of the deed to the officer who responded? They aren’t certain. Had the officers who responded DURING the robbery asked for the copy of the deed it might have slowed her from accomplishing the robbery.

Among those she had with her was Ed Weideman, a former township police officer.

One officer seems alarmed that I am upset and inquires if I am on any drugs. I ask if it isn’t appropriate to be upset when finding myself in this situation and learning that though law enforcement was contacted by an unassociated third party, they chose to do nothing to so much as slow the progress of the robbery. I imagine I received more questions regarding the Agreed Order than Sonya did about the deed WHILE SHE WAS ROBBING THE HOUSE IN BROAD DAYLIGHT.

Additionally, this officer is the officer who assisted Officer Gerry Dougherty on August 8, 2007 when I was inappropriately involuntarily committed. I point out to him that he is fully aware of the constant harassment which has been officially ignored by the township police.

I ask if they are aware of the make and model of the truck used and indicate it is likely parked on Stayman Drive at the Weideman’s residence directly across Horsham Road from the Police Department. They were unaware of the type of truck.

On Sunday evening when I was provided with the pictures of the robbery in progress, the truck in the pictures was the same truck which I saw before 5AM that morning parked a few hundred yards down the road from the Weideman residence on Stayman Drive within sight of the police department building across the street.

Later that day I additionally called the police to report that the dog was very ill – vomiting and diarrhea since I had returned home at 3 and continuing all day. I tried to contact Sonya and Colin and Brennan to find out what had been fed to the dog. they refused to provide the information. I asked police to contact the people involved in the robbery and ask what was given to the dog. They refused and further indicated that there were other people in the township who required their services.

As it was Easter Sunday, going to an emergency veterinarian would have been very costly. Treating the dog without knowing what he was poisoned with would be speculative.

I was still receiving threats that they were planning to return, I wasn’t able to go Easter Dinner at my mother’s home in Warrington.

Sonya’s lack of a response with regard to what had poisoned the dog, lead me to additionally conclude that they may have additionally ‘supplemented’ the food in the house.

I threw out any food items which were not in their sealed container or packaging.

While initially I consider this necessary but somewhat over-thinking until on Wednesday March 26, 2008 at 4:25 PM. I received a call from Upper Gwynedd Police Department investigating the report of a suspicious package which Sonya had not yet received but had been notified about collecting from the North Wales Post Office. The officer asked if there was any liquids powders or explosives in the package. I responded that the package did not contain anything more than the contempt of court petition which was filed on Monday in response to her weekend robbery of my home.

I further went on to remind him that I was the father who called every few weeks asking the Upper Gwynedd Police to check on my son whom I am prevented from contacting though there has not been any explanation of why they are preventing him from contact with me. The police have indicated to me that I am not mistaken in the belief that if I attempt to visit my son at the apartment, she will call police and have me arrested. They would then be left with no choice but to respond to her statement and indeed lock me up.

I also indicated that there was no explanation, rationale or precedent which might account for Sonya’s fear of the package. Unless she had indeed done something to the food in the house during the robbery.

I have done nothing to retaliate against her constant attacks, and I am not inclined to do so. She is apparently reduced to making up imaginary scenarios and accusing me of those instead. And the police have to respond.

March 24, 2008 – 12:51 PM – Call from Chief Brady
Chief Brady
This was a short call from Chief Brady indicating that he had heard about the robbery over the weekend. I mentioned to him that I was en route to the county courthouse to file a contempt of court petition. I asked him if I have suffered enough for WHATEVER NO ONE WILL SAY THAT I DID that the police can be expected to do their job in the future. He indicated that I had definitely suffered enough. (I am not implying in any way that he admitted to any responsibility in making that remark. One thing I haven’t done through the whole situation is attempt to trick people into saying things. Those that have ‘slipped’ have done so out of their own stupidity. (see the Feedback page)).
He asked me to contact him later in the day to update him with regard to the Emergency Petition which would grant him the ability to lock the storage unit so that the items stolen and stored there could be retrieved without further stress.
