You can't make this stuff up. Hey Truth in LB, is this true? Yesterday, the new head of our detective division, even though he was never a detective, Stefan Chernaski was off duty at his home in Merrick. He was involved in an accident with a city car in Freeport as he drove with lights and sirens. He hit a car at an intersection. He allegedly paniced and then after the accident, he called his desk officer to put him on the payroll "as of about a half hour ago"-after the accident! According to PD protocal, whenever a cop is involved in a accident with a city vehicle, one of his superior officers must go to the scene to investigate. For "some" reason, none of Cheranski's bosses went to the scene? Hmm. I wonder why? Then Cheraski writes his accident report and states that he was called into duty to "assist an officer with an investigation." That explains why he left his house,right? Problem is, so one ever requested assistance from Chernaski, he may have lied on the report. So here we go again. We have yet another PD cover up in our "new and improved" PD. Why did Chernaski have a car at home, Why did he call himself on duty after the accident, instead of before? Why didn't an boss go to the scene to investigate? Cheranski is unraveling at the seems while he heads our crime fighting force. LB is not as safe as it was 6 months ago. Under the Tangeny, Chernaski, Larson Regime resdients should lock doors, buy an alarm system, and protect you family and property.

Chernaski sounds like he has mastered all the qualifications to be a real politician: the arts of desception, dishonesty, and an ability to skew the facts to suit any circumstance . . . Yup. Definitely a Long Beach politician-to-be.

Notice that the City of Long Beach isn't releasing crime reports to the media any more? They don't want you to know of the armed robberies on the boardwalk, or the rape on the West End. They don't want you to know about the 125% increase in crime since the Democrats took over the LBPD and stuffed it with their hacks. Just keep sending in those bigger tax checks and they'll keep increasing spending. Hey, doesn't the PD need more boats or a new armored troop carrier? How about new cars?

Does anybody know how to get help in general in this town? Anybody try the new 'illegal housing' hotline and get any help? Anybody try to make the streets safer with the help from our new traffic 'expert' ragona? Anybody try to bike or walk to the beach without always 'almost' getting hit by the speeders and texters? And a head detective without experience and living in another town...great.
