Idyllic…I Think Not!

Nestled among the serene mountain ranges and rolling hills of Western Massachusetts lies a highland geologic region called Berkshire County. Depicted through the paint brush of Norman Rockwell, Berkshire County suggests an ideal place for vacationers to frolic and locals to proudly raise their families.

The largest city in Berkshire County is Pittsfield, a community of less than 45,000 people that hosts a vibrant tourism industry based on music, arts, and recreation.  But Pittsfield has a dark side.  An evil that you won’t find on any tourist map.

I have experienced this evil, first-hand.  An evil that shatters innocent lives with the clicking of handcuffs.  An evil that condemns moralistic souls with the slamming of cell doors.  The evil to which I’m referring is the Pittsfield Massachusetts Police Department.  A mismanaged agency in which law enforcement personnel break their social contract and abuse power for personal or departmental gain.
