|DISTRICT SAFETY OFFICER JAMES MARTINEZ|
This past week, Concerned Hamburger received disturbing emails from two separate sources. Both, in independent reports, verified that James Martinez, Boston Valley Elementary School Principal, made false and disturbing reports to the New York State Police and the Hamburg Village Police targeting a staff member.
Mr. Martinez, who, from all reports seems to be a bit off his rocker, called the New York State Police and the Hamburg Village Policeman Capt'n Melisz and falsely reported a staff member was going to bring a gun to school. Mr. Martinez made the claim knowing it was false. The staff member was unaware of the hoax, but Martinez and other members of the "security team" including Mr. Brent Jordan were well aware of the lies that were being created to instill fear in certain members of the community. The date of this disturbing occurrence was 9-11-13.
In a strange twist, Safety Officer Martinez, called a* parent of students in Hamburg High School and Hamburg Middle School and reported that her children could not be guaranteed safety at Hamburg High School and Middle Schools. Mall Cop Martinez and District Administrator Brent Jordan created a safety plan for a student at Hamburg High School with the sole intent to instill fear in students and a family for no other reason than to harass a targeted staff member, who according to sources was not present in the buildings at the time.
The entire tale about guns and lack of safety were lies created by a seemingly crazy man to tarnish the reputation of staff members. Martinez with the assistance of Brent Jordan and a newly appointed High School Assistant Principal A. Bolin created lies about safety for no other purpose than to create false documents about a staff member. These incidents were reported to the school board, two superintendents- Coppola and Cornell, (Doc. Jetter was well aware of it, but he was proven to be insane) and the New York State Department of Education. The replies are shocking. Hamburg Superintendent, fresh from a perch as a Middle School Principal offered tenure to Mr. Martinez, ignoring multiple reports of his mentally unstable conduct. As for Jordan and Bolin they received hefty raises from the school district according to District records.
In a recently released recording between a private citizen and the head of investigations with the New York State Education Department (SED), the department at SED that investigates "immoral" certificate holders didn't think it was a big deal that a man who is entrusted to look after several hundred people called in a fake gun threat to two police agencies. One must guess that SED hasn't been made aware of violence in schools, and if they are aware of gun violence in schools they seemingly do not take it seriously. If a child called in a fake gun threat it would be on the front page of the USA Today.
Additionally, Concerned was notified that Safety Officer Martinez made two separate false break in reports at Boston Valley Elementary School. Mr. Martinez, in another act of insanity, made the claim to the Hamburg School Board that over two separate weekends in October, a gang of 3 or 4 individuals were seen entering the Boston Valley Elementary School. Mr. Martinez, in a departure from his conduct related to the gun hoax, did NOT call the police, even though the New York State Police have an office just a stones throw from Boston Valley. Mr. Martinez, instead of calling the police, falsely accused his secretary, and a handful of others. Martinez as a building principal and school safety officer didn't think it was important to call the police, because as it turns out it was indeed Mr. Martinez who entered his own building and staged a break-in. The police eventually investigated the fake break-ins, but not until several weeks after Martinez made up the stories. The security firm that installed the cameras at Boston Valley told the District that the cameras were manually turned off by the person who had the security code. (aka James Martinez)
Well, if that doesn't make you wonder what is wrong with Mr. Martinez, this will, and it has been reported before in other media formats. James Martinez knew Dick Jetter damaged his own car back in May 2014. As a re-fresher, Jetter was in a drunken state resultant of a day drinking outing with the Hamburg Middle School Principal. While drunk, Jetter wrapped his car around a utility pole and then made a false claims that it was his imaginary demons that damaged his car. Jetter despite making over $170,000 per year, then pilfered district money to pay the repair costs. Mr. Martinez, who was recently tenured by Superintendent Cornell, was not fired by the District for his insane actions, but rather rewarded. Martinez aided and abetted in Jetter's crime, and the Hamburg School District, the Boars of Education, and the investigators at SED think this is conduct that should be excused. Fake reports about guns in schools do not seem to bother Cornell, the Boars and SED.
So, Hamburg Focus readers, the bells and whistles of the new district safety plan are indeed impressive, they will help keep the children safe while studying.
However, the one must consider that the external threats are minimal compared to the bizarre conduct of District Safety Officer Martinez.
The recording between a private Hamburg citizen and Mr. Bart Zabin of the New York State Education Department regarding Mr. James Martinez will be made available shortly on You Tube. Technical difficulties came up. CH will up date the post when the recording is up and running.
* this means only one parent. There are approximately 1,500 children in Hamburg, but Martinez only seemed concerned about one child in Hamburg High School, and one child in Hamburg Middle School. So, parents, unless it was you that was call, you should have dire concerns about this man and his lies.
