SOUTH BRONX SCHOOL: Goodbye David Pakter, You Will Be Missed

Goodbye David Pakter, You Will Be Missed


David Pakter has fought the good fight. He did what many of have wanted to do. He gave a good, swift, hard kick into Joel Klein's testicles. Whilst Klein is writhing on the ground in pain holding his damaged goodies, Pakter is leaving with his head, and self-respect, held high.

From David Pakter:

At What Cost, Victory ?

Over, And Yet Never Over

Some Thoughts Expressing the Idea That

Behind the Toughest Exterior the Pain Yet Lingers

To My Legal Team

With Heartfelt Appreciation

Many thanks for following up on the idea to create a paper trail for the Hon. Supreme Court Justice Cynthia Kern to better recognize the NYC DOE's current intention to "circle the wagons" and put up smoke and mirrors to hide the Truth of what was done to me.

I trust the Bio I faxed was sufficiently readable for your purposes.
As students of human nature it might interest you to learn that despite the fact that on Tuesday last, I officially resigned my career as a New York City Educator after 41 years, 9 months and 20 days, my mind has not been as successful as the paperwork submitted in severing the Links.

At times I feel a great relief that I will never again have to sit in some God forsaken little "Hearing Room" at 49 Chambers Street and suffer the obscene humiliations visited there upon Theresa Europe, Esq.'s countless and helpless victims.

But several times a day, all the recollections of the past seven years come crashing back down upon my head like demonic memories from Hell that cannot be escaped. The years of being made to feel like a powerless victim at the mercy of a 23 billion dollar conglomerate controlled by pathological, sub humans like Joel Klein, Theresa Europe et al, are not easy to forget or bury.

And poor Mr. A, who first brought my case to your attention, not only was also ruthlessly victimized by these ghouls from some sick Underworld, but for the sake of his Family must continue to work for and be victimized in that sick world- may God have Mercy on his Soul.

I suppose when one finally escapes some Hellish nightmare that has continued for years beyond counting, one never fully recovers from or is able to escape all thoughts and memories of such an experience. And I fully suspect these memories will haunt me into my grave and into the next world.

And haunt me not only for what a depraved and clinically sick system did to me alone but the havoc and pain that was visited upon so many others as well.


One can only attempt to move on with one's Life as best he can and just learn to live with the memories that for years beyond number, one was a "victim", and try to concentrate on actions beneficial to our future days in our future lives.

But we must also accept the fact that the memories of our long nightmare will never be fully laid to rest and will always be there, existing just below the surface ready to be reawakened at a moment's notice.

I was removed from my Medical Room on Sept. 26, 2004, after a full year of never ending highly vicious Whistle-blower Retaliation, on ten minutes notice and unceremoniously "escorted"/ejected from the school building where I had taught with Distinction for a quarter of a Century.

My removal was intentionally staged, as if in a Theatre, orchestrated by uniformed guards, as if I were a common felon, and meant to be witnessed by hundreds of my students and fellow Teachers.

My "removal" was intended to be a "show" and perhaps a warning to others to "stay in line and do not rock the boat lest you suffer the same Fate as David Pakter".

From that day on I was catapulted into an endless nightmare of being Railroaded by the Dept of Education Medical office quacks and endless other indignities including going through two ""Kangaroo" trials euphemistically referred to as NY State Education Law 3020-a trial Hearings.

A process so twisted and devoid of any of the rights that obtain in a trial in a Real courtroom that it is no wonder people entering 49 Chambers Street must go through Metal detectors for fear some Teacher might just finally snap and start taking out the so-called DOE Prosecuting attorneys, all of whom should be lined up against a wall for the things they do every day of the week to end an innocent Teacher's career and source of livelihood to feed their families.

It was only due to the endless, years long efforts of a highly dedicated Defense attorney as well as a most courageous NY State Hearing Officer who refused to be intimidated, that Justice in the end prevailed.

I have actual proof that the Head of the NYC Dept of Education Teacher Trials Unit Chief, Theresa Europe, Esq. and Philip Oliveri, my DOE "prosecutor" knew the charges against me were bogus and concocted from Day One. I have recently been reading cases of US District Attorneys who eventually were disbarred for Railroading Defendants who they knew were 100 % innocent.

I absolutely want to see Theresa Europe, Esq., Philip Oliveri, Esq. and many other individuals, publicly disbarred for what was done to me, (not to mention so many others which continues even now today, as I write these words).

Please try to imagine, for a moment, your own wife, husband, son or daughter was a NYC Teacher and about to go through the seven year Hell I experienced after I wrote to former Federal Prosecutor Joel Klein, Esq. on October 2, 2003, informing him of egregious Federal, State and City, Civil Rights violations that were occurring in the NYC Public schools.

If there is anything positive to be gleaned from the long nightmare I experienced and managed to survive it is that along the way I met many courageous individuals of principle who refused to avert their eyes from what was being done to me and so many other innocent human beings who did not in any way deserve the Fates served up to them by such twisted human failures as former Federal Prosecutor, Joel Klein, Esq. and his "willing executioners".

God must look down approvingly upon any person who would spend his/her life defending those who cannot defend themselves from morally bankrupt, pathologically evil individuals.

Next to healing broken and diseased bodies, what could possibly represent a more worthwhile way to spend one's hours upon this Earth than standing up for what is Right and defending those Falsely Accused.

Everlasting Blessings on those people everywhere who have the courage of their convictions, and who refuse to capitulate to Evil for the sake of personal gain.

They are indeed the Brave,

and their selfless Courage makes up for all the depraved cowardice of others.

You supported me from the beginning joining the lead of the inimitable Betsy Combier, Karen Horwitz in Chicago, Norman Scott, Jim Callaghan, Under Assault, Chancellor's Clothes,Fidgety and so many others, too numerous to name.

Your support always meant the world to me, as such support must, to lone individuals everywhere, who find themselves under attack for having the courage of their convictions.

Please be aware that the NYC Dept of Education illegally ordered the payroll Secretary at my school to withhold ALL my printed and legally Issued checks since October 1 of 2009.

The intention of this illegal and vicious act was to make it so economically costly for me to continue with my New York State Education Law 3020-a Trial Hearings, that I would give up my right to a State Education Trial and forfeit the opportunity to clear my Family name of the preposterous, villainous and fabricated "charges" made against me by a desperate Joel Klein, Esq. and Company.

History will record that this dastardly and illegal plan failed miserably. Month after month as I continued sacrificing tens of thousands of dollars in lost wages, which are now lost forever, I refused to throw in the proverbial towel and give up my quest for Justice.

It must never be forgotten that "the only thing necessary for Evil to triumph is for Good people to do nothing.

On June 10, 2010, the very courageous NY State Hearing Officer, the Hon. Douglas J. Bantle, Esq. announced in a final Public Hearing that he was throwing out and dismissing the absurd, and virtually legally insane "charges" leveled against me, which included the "charge" that I had brought a plant to school without "Official Dept of Education Permission".

In an act that will live in infamy, the ethics challenged DOE Prosecuting Attorney, Philip Oliveri, (it is widely believed, no doubt on orders from the morally bankrupt Chief of the Teacher Trials Unit, Theresa Europe), previously made the Motion weeks earlier, during a packed Hearing, that the Hearing Officer in charge of my Trial, should recuse himself and step down from the case.

This brash, young, and it must be said, gutless, DOE Prosecuting attorney charged that the highly Distinguished and widely respected State Arbitrator, the Hon. Douglas J. Bantle, Esq. was not capable of arriving at nor rendering an Impartial Verdict in the Trial of DAVID PAKTER.

To his ever lasting credit the Hearing Officer refused to capitulate to this unwarranted, deceitful attack on his Judgment and ability to render a fair and Just verdict in the Trial based solely on the facts and evidence as presented during a period of more than a year.

Well earned congratulations, I should note here, are surely due to the brilliant NYSUT Attorney, Christopher M. Callagy, Esq. who, in an act of incredible stamina, selflessness and courage, agreed to Defend me for the second time in a second State Trial after he had already successfully prevented Joel Klein's henchmen from terminating me in a previous State Education trial.

I cannot adequately express in words the enormity of the debt that is owed to Mr. Christopher M. Callagy, Esq. for agreeing to represent me all over again in this second DOE "show trial" after having so successfully previously Defending me.

They say "old soldiers never die, they just fade away".

But this "old soldier" is cut from a different cloth.

As I sever my formal association with Joel Klein, Esq.'s 23 Billion Dollar conglomerate, euphemistically called the NYC Dept of Education, his attorneys, as well as those of the NEW YORK POST newspaper will be facing me on Wednesday, July 21 at 9:30 AM in State Supreme Court before the Supreme Court Justice, the Hon. Justice Cynthia Kern.

This time around it will be Joel Klein's NYC DEPT OF EDUCATION that will be on the receiving end.
They will be forced to explain to a State Supreme Court Justice why they should not be forced to answer an ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE to divulge names involved AND/OR RESPONSIBLE for a vicious Libel against me printed by the NEW YORK POST in a Sunday, March 21, 2010 "Rubber Room" story written by YOAV GONEN and BRAD HAMILTON.

Thus the battles are far from over.

Only this time the next Battle will be fought in State Supreme Court where Perjury is called Perjury and not an innocent error in remembering names, dates and events.

For those who have an interest in the cause of obtaining serious Justice for American Teachers, attendance in NY State Supreme Court on July 21 is highly recommended.

Dates and details:

NY State Supreme Court
80 Centre Street
Wednesday, July 21, 2010
Room 328 at 9:30 AM
The Hon. NY State Supreme Court Justice Cynthia Kern

HAS ANYIONE ASKED MULGREW WHY HE IS COVERING UP THIS MAJOR VICTORY BY NOT RUNNING A STORY IN THE UFT NEWSPAPER?
WHO IS MULGREW PROTECTIBG AT DOE?
THEY COVERED THE PAKTER CASE ONCE BUT NOT WHEN HE WINS.
BRING BACK RANDI-THIS GUY HAS NO BALLS. JUST ANOTHER UFT MONEY- GRUBBER.

That's because Mulgrew has turned into Colonel Hutchinson

One thing I am certain of is that the last thing UFT wants is to have every teacher in 3020a fighting like David Pakter. That is the main reason that David's story is nob covered in the Union paper.
I have never heard any NYSUT attorney encourage his or her clients-teachers to go to hearings if the hearing can be avoided at the prompting of DoE.
Who cares if a teacher is wronged as long as the UFT machine runs smoothly.
I am saddened but not surprised that David has not gotten any UFT coverage for his stunning win. Individual teacher is only good for the dues and used as a pawn in the big power game.

inside the Unity caucus:

Mulgrew is now the referee between BRONX REP JOSE VARGAS AND STAF DIRECTOR LEROY BARR TO DIVVY UP D.O.E. JOBS- THEY ARE FIGHTING LIKE CATS OVER WHETHER BLACKS OR LATINOS SHOULLD GET THE $150,000 JOBS THAT KLEIN IS OFFERING THEM SO THEY STAY QUIET ABOUT PAKTER AND IRIS BLIGE AND BRONX HS OF SCIENCE.
THERE ARE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS AT STAKE FOR BARR AND VARGAS -TO HELL WITH THE DUES PAYING MEMBERS WHO GET SOLD OUT.
THIS IS WHAT MULGREW HAS BEEN UP TO- IT IS A TRAGEDY FOR PEOPLE LIKE PAKTER.
THE UNION PAPER HAD NO STORY ON JFK HS- SEE DAILY NEWS -ABOUT THE CORRUPT PRINCIPAL WHO SENT CHAPTER LEADER MARIA COLON TO THE RUBBER ROOM FOR REPORTING THE THEFT OF SCHOOL MONEY. SHE WAS TOTALLY EXONERATED AT HERE 3020a- LIKE PAKTER- THEN WAS SENT BACK TO THE RUBBER ROOM.
MULGREW AND HIS FLUNKIES ARE ONLY INTERESTED IN GETTING JOBS FOR THEIR "FRIENDS" (LETS FIND OUT HOW CLOSE THESE "FRIENDS" ARE).
ALSO, BARR GAVE ONE OF THE MOST CROOKED LABOR LEADERS IN NEW YORK- VERONICA COSTA AT D.C.37- AN AWARD SO HE COULD GET JOBS FOR HIS ARMY OF ASS KISSERS.
KEEP YOUR EYE ON FUTURE SELL OUTS BY MULGREW, WHO IS ONE BIG HORSE'S ASS WHO IS AFRAID OF THE MAYOR. NO BALLS MULGREW -THAT IS WHAT THE UNITY CAUCUS CALLS HIM BEHIND HIS BACK.
