What is Hamilton Township not telling you about the people they employ to protect you?
We have been sent information about this lawsuit from a handful of people that feel it's important you know the truth about one of the people hired by Hamilton Township to "protect you".
If we have missing or incorrect information, please let us know as we only want to provide factual information contact us now.
So far this is what we've been informed:
This is the interesting part... people within the Township/Police Department were so outraged by the actions of Jeff Braley (breaking/abusing the law and his position) that they informed this family of what really happened to obtain just cause to enter the house/break up the party. They then sued Jeff Braley in Federal Court, a lawsuit still going on.
Is this really information that should be kept a secret? Is this really a person that should be on a Police Department to Serve and Protect us?
UPDATE - 1/25/2011
"Braley was also involved in the following events that would play a roll in the federal suit. Not only should a civilian be able to sue him, but the feds themselves should indict him for arresting people in Ohio, prior to being a certified peace officer. This actually did happen. The second piece is that he took part with Eugene Duveulis (spelling??), X Police Chief, and now township trustee in the interview involving a CSX investigator that involved the gag order on Greg Kelley"
UPDATE - 1/26/2011
"You might want to also post another twist to this. Mark Duvelius is an investigator underneath Scott Male, Mark is also the brother of Euguene Duvelius, who is the township trustee in Hamilton Twp. It is my understanding that he has had some involvement in this investigation with Scott Male (traveling to Iowa, etc) If you request a public records request, (outside of the gag order) or, if able too! You will find that Mark lied on the stand about some involvement with the Kilburn family years ago, and he was convicted of perjury in this case. You, also might find it interesting to find someone that could fill you in on Scott Males history with the Drug Task Force - prior to John Burke running it. It is reported or rumored that there are some juicy pieces from the past."
From one of the briefs
At the Pritchard residence, Braley approached Mary Pritchard and identified himself. (Record Entry No. 30, Deposition of Mary Pritchard, p. 36, lines 18-22)
Mary Pritchard identified herself as the homeowner and asked Braley why the officers were on her property. (Record Entry No. 20, Deposition of Jeff Braley, p. 48, lines 8-12)
During this conversation Braley told Mary Pritchard that he was going to take her fucking house. (Record Entry No. 30, Deposition of Mary Pritchard p. 40, lines 1-17; Record Entry No. 31, Deposition of Stephen Pritchard, p. 40, lines 3-9; Record Entry No. 27, Deposition of Edward Pritchard, p. 31, lines 8-9)
Braley's demeanor was nasty and aggressive while pointing his finger in Mary Pritchard's face. (Record Entry No. 30, Deposition of Mary Pritchard, p. 40, lines 1-9; Record Entry No. 27, Deposition of Edward Pritchard, p. 31, lines 7-8; Record Entry No. 31, Deposition of Stephen Pritchard, pp. 42-43, lines 24-1)
As Braley cursed, spit was coming out of his mouth. (Record Entry No. 27, Deposition of Edward Pritchard, p. 31, lines 7-8)
Braley threatened to call Stephen Pritchard's college football coach and also threatened Mary Pritchard with jail. (Record Entry No. 31, Deposition of Stephen Pritchard, p. 41, lines 13-16; Record Entry No. 30, Deposition of Mary Pritchard, p. 44, line 7-10; Record Entry No. 27, Case: 09-4594 Document: 006110628880 Filed: 05/14/2010 Page: 25 24 Deposition of Edward Pritchard, p. 33, lines 22-25)
Mary Pritchard was very upset and crying. (Record Entry No. 21, Deposition of Terry Christman, p. 44, lines 4-5, p. 45, lines 18-22) Even after the raid was over Mary Pritchard remained worried over BraleyÕs threats.
