WALLS OF BISD ARE COMING DOWN TO THE TRUMPETS OF JUSTICE

BREAKING NEWS:

JIMMY HAYNES ALLEGEDLY ASSAULTS TROY WHITTEMORE AND WIFE AT CARINOS

Troy Whittemore is on the phone telling me that Jimmy Haynes also assaulted his wife.  The allegation is Jimmy Haynes had alcohol on his breath. The Brownsville police officer was made aware of this and refused to chase Jimmy Haynes as he fled the scene.  The allegation is the police arrived less then a minute after Jimmy Haynes fled the scene.  Witnesses claim he appeared intoxicated.  If this allegation is true, then the police officer allowed for an angry drunk  driver to get on the highway back to Harlingen.  There must be an investigation. 

On the police officer, the chief of police needs to investigate the matter and if found to be true that the police officer was told Jimmy Haynes appeared intoxicate the police officer needs to be suspended pending a further investigation.  The Brownsville PD and DA Villalobos have a very lax attitude about DWI.  Until we have a police chief willing to force his/her officers to enforce the law on this issue our streets will not be safe.  The witnesses are saying Jimmy Haynes only had a 45 second lead on them.  In any city but Brownsville the police would have pursued Jimmy Haynes.  But this is Brownsville where children drive drunk and kill themselves and friends.  Why? - because on this issue far too many police officers refuse to enforce the law, and we have a feckless mayor.

Mr. Mayor Tony Martinez when are you going to take action against this lax attitude towards DWI? 


Original Post

The BV verified for the 3rd time current BISD administrators have met with the FBI. Within the last 2 hours or so, it is being reported by eyewitnesses that Jimmy Haynes, BISD Purchasing  - (Correction Operations not Purchasing)  Assistant Superintendent  - who has claimed Escobedo ordered him to make changes on the BAC contracts - allegedly assaulted Troy Whittemore, AA Paredes Elementary school (correction Hudson not Paredes).  The event occurred at Carino's restaurant. 

It is being reported that Jimmy Haynes accused Troy Whittemore of being the source who has been leaking Jimmy Haynes claims about alleged contract rigging and going to the FBI.  I can say with 100% certainty this is the first I have heard of Troy Whittemore being involved in any of this.  My source as to the claims against Enrique Escobedo was from a friend of Haynes who claims Haynes told him directly - and it was not Whittemore.  Jimmy Haynes might want to check with his attorney about the leaks.  I have no idea who his attorney is, but in Brownsville attorneys are like cackling hens - nothing is secret.

I have numerous sources telling me all hell has broken out at BISD, and Presas-Garcia and Loosey Goosey Longoria are determined to pay off Antonio Juarez and Hector Gonzales immediately.  It is also my understanding that the FBI is now monitoring every post on the BV and are fully aware of the threats by some of the corrupt board members to make Aguilar and Colunga pay their own attorneys  fees if they do not agree to settle the lawsuits with Juarez and Gonzales.  This is a crime.  It would not surprise me if the FBI has adviced Aguilar and Colunga to give in so as to justify immediate action by the FBI against those board members who have made the threat and Antonio Juarez and his lawyers.

But pay attention people - my sources are telling me that Cadillac Cata and Loosey Goosey are unmoved by any reporting at the BV and that  they fully intend to move forward with their plans. It is once again on Tuesday BISD's agenda.

Sorry for the two corrections, but I was focused on verifying the alleged assault story - I agree sloppy on my part.

Left to Right - Troy Whittemore and Jimmy Haynes

Clarification, Troy Whittemore is an assistant adm. at Hudson Elem.

BobbyWC said...

When I working with the source I looked to Paredes page and it is worthless - it tells you nothing

after the 3rd time I said are you sure in the background someone said "I'm not going to say it again" I laughed and took that as a friendly bitch slap

But you are correct - I am making teh correction

Jimmy Haynes is in charge of Operation he is not in purchasing. His title is Assistant Superintendent of Operations. Troy Whittemore's brother is Kent Whittemore who is now administrator for Instructional Technology. He has had several position this year. Jimmy Haynes was chosen by the current administration for his position. He was a principal the big shuffle in July.

BobbyWC said...

On the Pace issue I have investigated all the way to the TEA - the TEA has told me it could not have happened given the time frame needed. All you have is an allegation and nothing more.

To be honest I would have fired the woman who went to the blogs instead of following proper procedure. This is a basis for immediate discharge. She lost all credibility at that moment. So until I hear proof there is no story - The TEA is telling me given the time frame needed to carry out such a conspiracy and the allegations it could not have happened.

Also I have seen anony posts claiming she was doing this at the same moment I know she was with me - so as an eye witness I know the poster is lying

On the other bogus post you keep on making I have demanded evidence - you have produced known - if you know all of this then you should have evidence - to date you have produced nothing

I deal in facts - not vendettas.

What makes you believe that Troy is telling you the truth of being assaulted by Jimmy. Do you have a police report? Perhaps Jimmy simply left Carinos but it may not have been a situation where he fled the scene. Was there a crime reporter or investigator that took statements from the witnesses who stated that Jimmy was in the state of intoxication? You have always been good about making statements based on facts. Why are you posting on statements made perhaps on unrealiable witnesses?

Anonymous said...

So the Pace Principal was with you.

BobbyWC said...

On the day in question the Pace Principal and AA were with me a good part of the day. We were in a meeting with a parent.

On this story - Jimmy Haynes - I have two sources - the original source was secondary who has never failed me. But after the original post I personally spoke with Troy Whittemore and as my post states I reported what he told me. He was told to go to the PD on Tuesday to complete the report. Monday is a holiday.

There is no better source than the alleged victim.

Now how about you calling Jimmy Haynes and have him send me a statement denying the allegations and I will post it in its entirety.

I do not know Jimmy but you could call him and verify the statement that you posted. You have alway dealt with the facts in your posting. Such an incident of an assault will require Jimmy to report it to his superiors at BISD. Call Jimmy.

Bobby , Great job on this exclusive. OK folks, This will be a true test of the The Brownsville Heralds impartial journalism. I would like to see some follow-up reporting on this very scandalous assault by a BISD adm in a very public venue. A guilty concious can be a bitch Jimmy.Plus..lets see what BISD is going to do about this one. TSK...TSK..

Anonymous said...

Have you confirmed with Jimmy Haynes that he told his friend about the rigging of the contracts? If you did, will your source be a testifying witness? This will be a total blow to the corrupt $4. This is good news. I know that you do not post things without confirming that the information is correct.

BobbyWC said...

BISD has no jurisdiction here. This was an alleged assault at a public restaurant which is not BISD. The only thing BISD may have jurisdiction over is to insure this argument does not carry over to its property. Now if BISD has an internal policy to suspend employees accused of criminal conduct then they may have something based on their own internal policy.

The connection here to BISD is it involved 2 employees over alleged wrongdoing within BISD. BISD personal business seems to have spilled over into a public dispute.

The Herald cannot cover this without giving the entire story. This the Herald will not do. Where is the story if all they allege is 2 people got in a fight at Carinos - why? oh according to Daniel Cavasos at the Herald - not newsworthy

BISD does have a policy about employee conduct. This might fall under that policy if the police file any charges.

BISD is a (expletive) soap opera and a BAD one at that...the Atkinson cleansing continued yesterday as she began to cut departments and shuffled personnel. The reason...they are out of money and need to pay off whatever is left of the current faculty and staff in November to keep the corrupt four in office and her family well paid. Wake up BISD...begin to look at the big picture...the devil will dangle money in front of you so long as you lose your soul...and then when She's got you, she will treat you like vermin and abuse the hell out of you. The walls are coming down...and the time to make the decison is coming...are you sheep or are you the powerful and empowered educators you once were?
I know what your're answer is going to be Bobby, but i I have faith in the courage of the good people at BISD. They've seen it all and are still standing...they are not dumb, just scared...but even that is getting old. I challenge each and every one of you to rise and be counted with the just, not the corrupt.

BobbyWC said...

So long as Patrick Hammes is leading them the teachers are screwed. His job is compromised. He will not speak up for the educators. Rather than speak out against the corrupt 4 when they started to investigate him, he caved and sold out the teachers.

I am not saying he did anything to justify an investigation - I do not know the facts - just endless rumors with no proof - but the investigation certainly worked to spook him into silence

Bobby, I know we ask much from you...but one last request front and center. Please write a post specifically on Thursday night's charade of a Budget hearing...where Sylvia will be so happy to announce teachers and selected staff will be receiving a salary increase, Not to mention she will get her additional 25,000. The meeting where Juarez and Hector will recieve a substantial amount (in the hundreds of thousands, if not millions)This will be done behind closed doors of course and Lucy wants it that way...And no one will mention that they will have to raise our school taxes to pay for all this. Again, BISD people you will get raises and then give them back in the form on taxes...REALLY

BobbyWC said...

The next meeting is Tuesday not Thursday - last night I was told someone wants to meet with me on Tuesday - so I will probably be busy - to be honest with you - I do not care if they pay off Juarez and Gonzales - it will only serve to expedite action by the FBI -

The question no one can answer is, what is Saavedra's take on this - why does she go along - I am told her family members have lectured her on the illegality of all of this and she simply will not listen to even her family.

I am being told that her husband and Pat Lehmann are lied together in a very, very unhealthy relationship. It is said Saavedra's husband worships Lehmann

But let them pay the money - Juarez and Gonzales will never see it. If Tuesday's meeting goes forward I will be presenting the evidence I have of curruption at the Brownsville Housing Authority. Remember I have the documents which show the million dollar pay off to Jaime Escobedo in exchange for settlement with Rendon and Juarez

BobbyWC said...

Both comments rejected - the BV will not be used for smear campaigns without proof. On Pace I grow bored with you people - you claime there are a billion documents to support the claims but yet you cannot produce one - My sources on the contract rigging are producting emails, internal documents and more with no problem. Produce the claims and I will post them - But I spoke with the TEA and they told me that based on the time frame alleged it could not have happened. I have zero evidence to indicate otherwise.

Further I find it interesting that now people know I was with the principal for a good part of the day in question the time frame is changing. I remember a post which I rejected claiming Rose Longoria was doing her alleged dirty work at a specific time - I knew the claim was false so I knew the story probably had to be false.

You people have zero evidence and expect the BV to claim the story to be true. The BV does not publish stories based on anony's who may have a personal score to settle.

On the post about Saavedra's husband - also rejected - the claims about how much money was given to Saavedra during the campaign is incorrect, and the claims about Saavedra's husbands employment history at BISD is false - I have a complete history on the man - so I know the facts.

Finally on Pace documents related to personnel matters are not released - so it will have to be an insider who releases the documents.

You people are so stupid it blows my mind - here is a challenge for you - check social media - it allows you to link loyalties - you might actually learn something interesting

the last post on alleged contract rigging took my source a week to answer all my questions before I published the story - I deal in documents and facts - not cowardly posts by anony posters who have a score to settle

What departments in BISD were "cut and employees shuffled"....?? from the May 26, 2012 9:02 AM poster.

Also, can you obtain a listing of all the people SPA will be giving raises or a pay level increase?? I someone gets a raise, everyone in the district should get a raise!!! We all pay taxes folks!! Teachers speak up---no one is doing it for you. Time after time, he goes to the BISD Board and says a bunch of balony.....is he getting some extra pay?

BTW, Jimmy Boy needs to grow up and act professional because he is representing BISD where ever he goes. He wanted a top paying job and got it cuz he was SPA bff, well get to work boy and quit acting like an embarrassment when you go out in public!

Have you talked to Jimmy to get his side of the story?


In lying Brownsville anybody can fabricate a story,

I hope you do not get a slandering lawsuit like Jerry did?

BobbyWC said...

Mr Legal eagle - for the gallionth time - Slander "S" spoken - Liber - written "L" for letters

All I reported is what Troy Whittemore told me - - I made sure everything was stated as an allegation - as a matter of law there is no libel

Further, I invited Jimmy Hanyes herein to send me a written statement with his side of the story and I would post it as a separate post - just like I did with Masso - and in Massos's case it resulted in his accuser being denounce by me.

So just keep playing your silling games - it will not change reality

I looked up the definition of assault and found this:

assault 1) v. the threat or attempt to strike another, whether successful or not, provided the target is aware of the danger. The assaulter must be reasonably capable of carrying through the attack.

Now if you look at the pictures...I'd say it's evident Mr. Haynes is bigger than Mr. Whittemore, therefore he is definitely "capable of carrying through the attack".
From what I have heard from people who were at Carino's that night, Mr. Haynes grabbed Mr. Whittemore by the neck in a chokehold. What exactly about that is friendly or left for interpretation?

Furthermore, I have been reading though the Code of Ethics for Texas Educators and found the following:

CODE OF ETHICS AND STANDARD PRACTICES
FOR TEXAS EDUCATORS
The Texas educator shall comply with standard practices and ethical conduct toward students, professional colleagues, school officials, parents, and members of the community and shall safeguard academic freedom. The Texas educator, in maintaining the dignity of the profession, shall respect and obey the law, demonstrate personal integrity, and exemplify honesty. The Texas educator, in exemplifying ethical relations with colleagues, shall extend just and equitable treatment to all members of the profession.

Standard 1.9. The educator shall not make threats of violence against District employees, Board members, students, or parents of students.
Standard 1.10. The educator shall be of good moral character and be worthy to instruct or supervise the youth of this state.

Now if you ask me, Mr. Haynes did not maintain the dignity of the profession, nor did he respect and obey the law. He has no right to lay a finger on someone, let alone grab them. In addition, not only did he "make a threat of violence" he acted out on it which is completely unacceptable.

I am honestly sickened by the state of things in BISD at the moment, never has there been such corruption and abuse of power and the sad thing is that the kids are the ones who pay for it.

I hope charges are brought against this man and that the district does not turn a blind eye.

I was reading through the employee handbook and found the following:

DHA Legal
Education Code 21.041(8); 19 TAC 247.1, 247.2
REPORT TO SBEC
OF EDUCATOR MISCONDUCT
The Superintendent must file a written report with SBEC not later than the seventh day after the Superintendent first obtains or has knowledge of information indicating that:
CRIMINAL HISTORY
1. An applicant for or holder of a certificate issued by SBEC has a reported criminal history;

If charges are pressed against Mr. Haynes, I hope this policy is enforced. There must be consequences in this district. People have been getting away with way too much for way too long.

BobbyWC said...

Several issues - right now all we have are allegations against Jimmy Haynes - he has a right to defend himself - the BV remains open to any statement he wishes to make

Second, even if he is charged that is not a basis to report anything to anyone - a charge is not a conviction.

Third, regardless of police I am not sure BISD has any authority over private acts in public places outside of BISD.

Now the entire thing makes BISD look bad and shows the level of anger at BISD caused by the corrupt 4 and the incredibly incompetent Carl Montoya.

You welcome a statement from Mr. Haynes so that you can post both sides of the story. But what makes you think that everybody reads your blog, Mr. Haynes may be one of those individuals. Wouldn't it be a good situation if he received a call from you or a written statement? Call Mr. Haynes.

"Now if you look at the pictures. I'd say it's evident Mr. Haynes is bigger than Mr. Whittemore."

I am sorry but by looking at the pictures there is no evidence that Haynes is bigger than Whittemore. It is all matter of interpretation. Some people may look at the pictures and say that Haynes "es mas hombre" que Whittemore.

Did Whittemore give details as to how Haynes assaulted his wife?

BobbyWC said...

You can play all of the games you want - but Mr. Haynes has read this story - he reads the BV - he has complained enough about my stories - I can assure you he has read the post

Anonymous said...

You go bobby!! Haynes is probably visiting w/BISD heads or legal counsel right about now. No saving face now(:

BobbyWC said...

Thanks, the other poster is so stupid they actually believe they can create an image that the BV is not checking the facts.

According to this poster none of the Trustees, SPA, or Montoya read the BV - They all read the BV - Montoya cries to anyone who will listen how much he sees seeing his name on the BV.

Further as my story states - haynes allegedly accused Whittemore of being my source - meanng Haynes reads the BP

Hey Jimmy - the second I find the document about your visits to Hudson I will post it - It only occurred to me today why you thought it was Whittemore - I completely forget your connection to Hudson.

There is no doubt in my mind Haynes has already contacted his attorney to create a spin. That is fine - every story has a spin.

I am certain Carl Montoya has already called him to get his side of the story. By Tuesday morning when Troy Whittemore meets with the BPD again Haynes will have a complete story.

I suggest to Haynes to remember - Carinos has his tab and knows exactly how much he drank - if the police do their job they will get a copy of the tab - I just nearly pissed myself - if the police do their job? - the incident has already been ordered silenced - could you imagine relying on Villalobos getting a subpeona out to find out the truth? Not going to happen -

"Es mas hombre"? I'm sorry but I was raised to think that the bigger man was evidenced by actions not size. Jimmy is way bigger than Whittemore and his taking advantage of that does not make him "mas hombre". It makes him a coward.

BobbyWC said...

I am certain that Carl Montoya has already called Jimmy Haynes and Troy Whittemore. I am waiting on verification from an independent source as to who was with Jimmy Haynes at the time of the incident. I have already been told, but I want to hear it from two separate people. It will explain a lot

Atkinson put Haynes in so she wouldn't have opposition to carrying out her orders and reassignments in the department he was supposedly overseeing. He doesn't have the cajones to stand up to her. He knows the wrongs that were being done but he looked the other way to save his own ass. He fits in with Sylvia's plan. He can't make a decision so why does the district need him. Seems, especially after this fiasco, it would be in "the best interest of the distriction" for him to go. Go get him Whittemore!

Anonymous said...

BISD Policy DH Local on page 3 says that an employee must advise their principal or immediate supervisor of any arrest, conviction etc withing three days. They list the reasons an assault is one of the actions that must be reported.

BobbyWC said...

First of all Sylvia Atkinson did not put haynes anywhere - Enrique Escobedo ordered Haynes appointment to be able to control he contracts.

Sylvia just carries out orders.

Also this event happened outside BISD - I do not see how BISD policy impacts anything here until there is a conviction - assuming the allegations are true

This policy doesn't say that anything will be done but that you must report an arrest if the offense is on the list. This is not for school related incidents that is another part of the policy. Check our DH Local

Give us a break Bobby, the worst that can happen is to get charged with a "simple assault" charge and that is a class "C" misdemeanor. You know that, but guess you want readers so you make it seem bigger than it is. You are just as bad or even worst that the people you attack. Bet you won't print this.

"Enrique Escobedo ordered Haynes appointment to be able to control he contracts."

My understanding of the hiring process of BISD indicates that certified personnel is hired by the Board of Trustees not by one individual. Has this process changed? Please explain.

BobbyWC said...

Do you really believe policy is followed in the hiring process? Is that how Charlie Atksinson got hired over certified teachers/coaches - by the process being followed?

Anonymous said...

Therefore, you are saying that BISD has failed to follow the hiring process not only with Atkinson but also with Haynes. You still did not explain how Escobedo was able to get Haynes in is current position without anybody complaining or suiting the district like in the case of Atkinson. Correct me if I am wrong but I believe there is a gentleman suiting the district for not being hired for a coaching position after Atkinson was hired. I may be wrong.

BobbyWC said...

You do remember how Escobedo without consulting the Board placed the position of superintendent on the agenda after having Sylvia Atkinson post the opening just long enough for Carl Montoya to submit his application - teh process was then closed.

This nonsens has been going on at BISD for years beging long before I came to Brownsville.

In the case of Atkinson BISD was sued before Atkinson was hired - so your facts - I'm shocked - are wrong - the hiring of Atkinson is being used as evidence of corruption within the hiring process - but no one sued because Atkinson was hired.

Lawsuit claims BISD discrimination

March 26, 2012 10:10 PM


By GARY LONG/The Brownsville Herald


A former Porter High School track and cross country coach has amended a racial discrimination lawsuit that he filed against the Brownsville Independent School District in 2010 after the district hired former city commissioner Charlie Atkinson for a physical education teaching position at Faulk Middle School.

Alex amended the racial discrimination lawsuit after BISD hired Atkinson for the Faulk position.


Atkinson was hired under an alternative certification program. District spokeswoman Drue Brown said at the time that obtaining a teaching position often is part of the alternative certification process. Brown said it is "not uncommon" for someone to be hired while in an alternative certification program and to obtain their teaching certificate while in their first teaching job. She said the district has a number of such teachers.

BobbyWC said...

You are simply so blinded by your ignorance you cannot read or understand the English language

As the Herald article notes - the lawsuit for racial discrimination was filed long before Atkinson was hired - it was amended to include Atkinson as an example so that Shergold could depose Sylvia and Charlie - which he did by the way - I am told the depos are killers - but Shergold will not release them for publication-

But as is black and white in the Herald article the racial discrimination lawsuit was filed before Atkinson was hired - So there was no lawsuit filed because Atkinson was hired - the lawsuit which already existed was simply amended to ad the facts related to Atkinson

An amended lawsuit does not form the basis as to why the lawsuit was filed - it simply ads facts and possible additional causes of action - in this case it was to use Atkinson as evidence of hiring irregularities at BISD - not the basis for the lawsuit which was filed long before Atkinson was hired.
