Dionne Mack-Harvin Is Out @ Brooklyn Public Library

The New York Daily News reports that "there's a scandal in the stacks at the Brooklyn Public Library."

The head of the system abruptly quit last week after a plan to lay off 13 employees backfired and ended in a very public embarrassment. Insiders said the firing fiasco was the last strike against Dionne Mack-Harvin. "The board was not happy with her," a source said. It wasn't supposed to end this way. Mack-Harvin took the post with great fanfare and a fabulous back story - the African-American daughter of a sharecropper who loved books and rose to her dream job.

After taking a 5% cut to her $80 million budget, Mack-Harvin hired corporate downsizing experts to fire 13 employees. The Five O'Clock Club, was being profiled at the time by a Washington Post reporter, who was allowed to witness the library bloodbath - and chronicled it in painful detail in this August article. The story of the Brooklyn PL firings is in the latter part of the article. More from the Daily News and the Village Voice.

Obsessed?

Im here posting direct evidence of crimimal activity and evidencr of false arrest from fighting this atrocious incident

the only one obsesed is you
the only one showing complicity and acceptance of this criminal acitivity is you "Anon Master Uppity"

Pray you never are a victim of this, POS Pee-On

Rhanks for mking it clear tht your Parent

Anyone whos shows complicitness and acceptance and acts in hostile towards someone victimised for fighting the criminal activity deserves more than just profanity

Thanks for supporting cause, assclown

Providing links and

Providing links and newstories of incidents not related to your "false arrest" is not helping your cause.

And my parenting skills are NOT in question. I have taken my child to the library numerous times and nothing bad has happened. Why? Because I was doing my JOB as a PARENT. You know nothing about me or my parenting skills, so I will not take anything you say to heart.

Where have I shown complicity (as complicitness is not a word)? I have not. Nowhere in any of my comments have I said anything remotely close. As I asked before, show me the evidence. Repeat my own words back to me, as you are fond of doing.

As I said before, name-calling shows weakness, either in your argument or in your ability to present your case.

------------------------------------------------------------

This incident of the "Security Guard" was the result of a retired NYPD Lt who's on very Friendly terms with the Midwood Branch Staff.  

They solicited his services for the purposes of trying to intimidate me after I made NUMEROUS Complaints regarding the transient perverts approaching minors in the library.

In one case a 14 year old girl was approached by a pervert while she was on the adult. The guy stated he had an emergency and needed to use her computar when she allowed him to use her computar he started downloading porn in front of her and her little sister. The staff did absolutely nothing and allowed him to leave without calling police.

I started making numerous complaints. On 5 Feb 2007 the ARMED security guard from yashiva of flatbush was in the midwood branch hanging out with CHACA and several other staff. As I was making my way out of the door I stated hello and asked if he was on the job(Im former NYPD Aux)

He stated to "mind my fucking business" 
I stated "sorry, thought he was a Detective cause of the Gun and Radio" He stated "That I should be carefull walking up to people with guns without back-up cause I (Me) could get shot"

After making it clear that his actions were quite illegal I called the police. Two days later Ralph Marucci was in the library again and  Ten Detective came into library to arrest me on false charges. This was the staff at midwood who caused this and it continues to today as mr Marucci was in the staff room hanging with the trouble making parties who initiated this incident.

After this incident I was suspended without due process or investigation (as seen by the letter above.

The following letter below is proof (from NYPD Rant post by Police Officer regarding Ralph Marucci who continues to hangout at midwood branch. (sorry about the explitives)

Nothing like going through 14 months on trumped up charges for trying to protect minors from transient perverts accosting children at midwood Branch.

But what makes it even worse is while Ralph Marucci hangs out at the Midwood Branch it seems quite evident scandles occure right in his patrol jurisdiction while he's harrasing patrons in the library right around the corner

Controversy

Rabbi Alan Stadtmauer resigned his position as principal of the High School in June 2005. A few months later, news spread that his decision to leave was due in part to his sexuality. He later admitted in an email to a former student, that he is a homosexual, and had decided to leave the high school, the Rabbinate, and Orthodoxy due to pressures. The Yeshivah subsequently issued a statement saying that “There have been no allegations of inappropriate behavior during 
his tenure at the Yeshivah.”[5][6][7].

Re: Paul Isaac Jr

Dear Executive Director Cooper,

I am writing on behalf of a consituent, Mr Paul Isaac, concerning a conflict with a security guard at the Central Library [Cortelyou Branch]. 

Mr Isaac reports that he is suspended from the library for 6 months due to a minor incident that occured with a security guard at the Central Library[Cortelyou Branch]. Mr Isaac came into the Library with a drink in his hand when a security guard stopped him and told him not to bring any drinks into the library. Howevere, Mr Isaac noticed a Snapple machine inside the library hallway and questioned the security guard about why be could not bring in his drink when there is a soda machine inside. 
Mr Isaac claims that the security guard refused to answer his question and became very annoyed. His questions escaleted to and argument and, in the end, Mr Isaac was escorted out from the library[By Police] without any chance to defend himself. Mr Isaac believes he was wrongfully suspended from the library as a result of the security guards unprofessional conduct.

Please investigate this matter and keep me updated on your findings.

If you have any question or if I can be of any assistance in facilitating this request, please contact me.

Sincerly John C. Liu

Dear Paul,

I am writing to you on behalf of one of my consituents, Paul Isaac who resides at [Address Redacted].

On July 31, 2007, He recieved a letter from your office stating that his library privilages were going to suspended for a period of 6 months. It is my understanding that Mr Isaacs library privilages were suspended due to inappropriate behavior he displayed at the Cortelyou branch.

Although Mr Isaac was labled as being a cisruptive individual, I am aware that he is an active community member and has been a devoted an responsible library card holder.
I urge to consider reinstating Mr Isaacs library privilages thereby allowing him the oppurtunity to full advantage of the educational oppurtunities that are available through the Brooklyn Public Library system.

Thank You for taking the time to read this letter and reviewing this case throughly. I look forward to working with you to resolve this matter. If you have any questions or need any additional information please feel free to contact my office at 718-629-6401.

Yours in partnership

The above NYPD Rant post posted by Patrol Officer who responded to my 5 Feb 2007 police request when Ralph Marucci made threats against my life in the Midwood Branch which was instigated by Branch Staff "Chaca"

There were 5 to 6 officers who responded to the scene on 5 Feb including the poster (Hwy-Chaz driving Vehicle#5145) My Background was read and came back clean (Code 19) I was told that Mr Marruccu was a known "Dick" and that he would seek revenge.

On 7 Feb 2007 while I was in the Midwood Branch Mr Marucci was once again in the Library and began provoking an incident. When I tried to use the phone to call for police assistance "Chaca" Hung the phone up on me and when I tried again to call police Mr Marucci hung it up the second time. Mr Marucci was accompanied by a second YOB Armed Security Guard who blocked the door preventing my egres.

I had to push him out of the way to get to the street where we waited for police cause Marucci called them. Aprox 10 Detectives from the 70Pct arrived on scene and I was arrested.

Numerous Video working Cameras recorded the incident yet Marucci who clearly violating the Law (and more) was allowed to call the the 70pct commanding officer to facilitate a false arrest of someone clearly defending themselves from an armed assailent.

The whole event was recorded by numerous security camera from Maruccis schools business on Ave J including the Ave J trainstation and the Rite-Aid store and what's supposedly Midwood Branch Security Cameras

That's why HWYChaz made the remark on NYPD Rant cause Ralph Maduccis didn't mention any of this when I called the police on 5 Feb.

We were all standing on E16 & Ave J at 15:00Hrs 5 Feb infrint of all the security cameras

Yet a false arrest was conducted on 7 Feb in the Midwood Branch in front of Midwood Branch Security Cameras

So perverts are welcomed and Kids are unsupervised and People displaying firearms can walk right in hang out with the staff and threaten patrons lives at the BPL

Watch what happens on Monday when I (Paul Isaac Jr) return to use the computar.
