The Journal News reports:

A grievance has been filed with a state panel against East Ramapo School District attorney Albert D’Agostino, alleging he cursed at a 17-year-old high school honor student.

Charlene Williams-Pulakos, an attorney, said Tuesday that the grievance committee should censure D’Agostino for his abusive language toward her son and for trying to intimidate him.

Nicholas Pulakos has said he questioned D’Agostino for cursing at activist Steven White outside district offices on March 5 following a Board of Education meeting. Pulakos asked the attorney if he was threatening White.

Williams-Pulakos said her son and other witnesses heard D’Agostino respond with a barrage of inflammatory language and offered to physically fight her child.

“As a mother I am deeply offended about how this man spoke to my child,” she said Tuesday. “As a lawyer, I am offended by how he represents the taxpayers who pay his salary.

“His conduct as a lawyer is inappropriate,” she said. “I don’t know whether the grievance committee will do anything. I think he should be censured.”…

Which grievance committee? I went to the Journal News but couldn't get in. I did see a headline there that someone mentioned dividing the this district into two districts. What's up with that?

OK even if you grant the cursing as free speech, threatening to fight a K-12 student? Is this guy a fucking animal?

I bet this pussy won't go to the gym where the advanced weight lifters are and talk shit.

D'Agostino seems to be the the head of the "Cabal of Miscreants" rather than the other way around (as Danny seems to think). Maybe once they succeed in creating "separate but equal schools" they can re institute the Jim Crow Laws and mandate modesty laws in Rockland?

And if he's censured, so what?

It appears anger management is in order for both he and the esteemed chair. Great example for the children and a greater example for the community as a whole. Thank you School Board members for putting forth the positive face of Jews to the community. This group has done more than just damage the district, they have destroyed a community. Let us not forget to thank the original charter member and another stellar member of our community, Aron Wieder, for igniting the initial flames. Luke.

The Board loves D'Agostino because he is doing what they want him to do. Any other school district would never have hired him. He showed his true colors from the very first time he appeared at a Board meeting. Just the fact that he took a State pension that he knew he wasn't entitled to should have been enough for the Board to question his integrity and not hire him.

Yehudis:

Very true, speaking of "integrity", remember who hired him. Our very own Mr. Wieder. Luke.

Really, when you think about it, the wheels came off the District when the Board hired Dog at 2:30 am. Dog is just doing what he was hired to do. I don't understand why he cannot control himself and I don't understand why he is so angry. Ok...well I guess I do understand why he is angry....roadblocks and investigations. What is truly gross is that often, the district is paying $500 per hour to have 2 lawyers present at board meetings...what's that about? Padding the bill or incompetence?

Some times there are even four lawyers present (costing $1,000/hr) Richard Stone said it would cost less money, but I guess he never counted lawyers at the meetings.

Whatever happened to the Dog and his side kick double billing the district on tolls, when they both rode in the same car?

Oh, that's old news! The auditor found that issue, reported it and was promptly replaced! Dog refused to provide the documents and it was swept under the carpet. Nothing unusual.
