The Cuppa Cafe - article in the Boston Phoenix
The Cuppa Cafe
Through the Lens - is a new exhibit at the Cuppa Cafe of the photography of Fiona Madigan.  Her work is likely to be unknown to most as she is currently working for the Boston PD as a crime scene photographer.  Not to fear - she shows none of the gruesome images she creates for Boston's Finest in this series, instead Fiona's offerings are pieces which focus on revealing the essense of things.  The artwork will be for sale. 

The exhibit opens with a small reception on Friday September 8th.

Dr. Zhao is becoming a character of interest, so I am posting the following information about him which has thus far been revealed in game. How much (if any) of this your character knows is up to you. I've recommended a few attributes (by no means comprehensive), but I think its more important the the info be made public than kept secret.

Corruption Allegations Well Warranted

The Boston Police Department has been under a haze of allegations regarding corruption and a web of bribery since long before last weeks resignation of Assistant DA James Munro, and the end does not seem to be anywhere in sight. Despite Commissioner O'Toole's promise to root out the problems, which is widely considered a publicity move to buy time until her departure, trouble seems to follow the beleaguered department. Crime is at an astonishing high this year, especially in homicides (29) and non-fatal shootings (160), most of these centered around the Dorchester area, long a hot spot of gang activity. Drugs have also posed an issue for Hub cops, and even with federal help, in the form of the recent Operation Money Man, as well as the large pot ring broke up by state troops last month, rumors continue to swirl that investigators are dragging their feet in prosecuting several individuals, most especially those involved in the so called "Syndicate Case". The most recent actions of our intrepid boys in blue just about prove this. Not only have the Boston PD released all those arrested in the second wave of local Money Man arrests, but sources have told this reporter that they are considering a plea bargain from Donald McLaughlin in testimony against his former fellows. This has to end! We pay taxes to be protected, not to let the criminals hide behind whatever cop they can buy this week!

The Boston Globe would like to remind its readers that the above article in no way represents the opinions of the Globe ownership or general staff, and are the sole beliefs of the author.
Thank You.

TASK FORCE DISMANTLES INTERNATIONAL ECSTASY RING


A total of 13 defendants have been arrested in recent weeks for their involvement in an international drug ring that allegedly imported millions of doses of the club drug “Ecstasy” from Europe into the United States. As a result of Operation Money Man, authorities have seized well over 600,000 doses of Ecstasy with a street value of nearly $14 million.

            Authorities in Boston announced the case today following arrests Monday of five defendants and the seizure of approximately 160,000 tablets of Ecstasy (3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine, or MDMA). The case is the result of a joint, international undercover operation that included the OCDETF, Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Boston Police Department, and Austrian and Czech authorities.

            The five arrests this week, and eight other arrests in recent weeks, cap a two-year investigation known as Operation Money Man that was conducted by the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF), which includes agents from ICE and DEA, as well as investigators from the Boston Police Department. The individuals arrested are accused of being part of an international coalition that trafficked in Ecstasy and laundering the monetary profits of the illegal trade. During the arrests, the OCDETF recovered in excess of $73 million dollars in hard currency, and has frozen various accounts totaling approximately $13.5 billion dollars, making this the second largest bust in OCDETF history.

            According to criminal complaints filed in this case, the investigation began in March 2004 when ICE agents learned that a group comprised primarily of Irish Nationals were trafficking Ecstasy in the Cambridge area. The investigation quickly focused on Sean Malony, the head of an organization that imported Ecstasy from Europe with help from associates in the Czech Republic. Over the last year, investigators believe the European ring shipped more than 7 million Ecstasy tablets from the Czech Republic to the United States, Australia, Poland and Russia. Criminal complaints filed in federal court in Boston allege that Malony and co-conspirators laundered drug trafficking proceeds through loan fraud, and real estate transactions handled by various Boston area investment firms.

Those arrested on Monday were:

• Damien Benes, 44, of Prague, who headed a European organization that shipped Ecstasy to Boston;
• Vaclav Pitas, 50, of Prague, who oversaw distribution for Benes’ organization;
• Nimrod Haim, 27, of Prague, who brokered Ecstasy deals between Pitas and Malony;
• Martin Celner, 40, of Boston, who is associated with Benes’ organization; and
• Bohumil Chudoba, 62, of Cambridge, who was arrested when he delivered approximately 160,000 Ecstasy tablets to an undercover law enforcement officer.

            In June, ICE and DEA agents, aided by officers from the Boston, Cambridge, and Back Bay Fens Police Departments, the Boston Sheriff’s Department, and the Boston Interagency Metropolitan Police Apprehension Crime Task Force (IMPACT), arrested Malony and six members of his organization believed to be part of a larger organization know only as the Syndicate. Those arrested were:

• Malony, also known as “Lucky” and “Kuku” (“ponytail” in Gaelic), 29, of Back Bay Fens;
• Frank Quinn, 38, of Cambridge, who allegedly helped Malony launder drug proceeds through real estate transactions;
• Fergus Shannon, 30, of Brookline, an alleged Ecstasy distributor;
• Eamon O'Ryan, 35, of Jamaicaway, who trafficked in Ecstasy;
• Ronan McCarthy, 29, of Cambridge, who allegedly purchased Ecstasy from Malony and acted as a courier;
• Sean Gallagher, 39, of Sommersville, who allegedly arranged for the transportation of Ecstasy to the United States on behalf of Malony; and
• Brian Mac Ateer, 20, of Chelsea, who allegedly traveled to Belgium to ship Ecstasy tablets to the United States.

A 13th defendant in the case, Donald McLaughlin, 20, of Boston, was in state custody on narcotics charges at the time of the takedown.

            Malony is being held without bail. The government has until October 26 to indict him and the other defendants.

            Michael J. Garcia, Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, stated: “These criminals trafficked Ecstasy and laundered their profits through bank fraud and real estate transactions handled by various Boston area investment firms. This investigation demonstrates the global reach of federal law enforcement to take drugs off the street and seize the profits from these criminal networks.

            Throughout the investigation, American law enforcement received substantial support from the Austrian National Police, the Belgium Federal Police, the Czech National Police, the Spanish National Police and the Israeli National Police.

Boston Globe article, 6/22/06 in the local news section
Assistant district attorney James Munro has resigned, effective this morning. No cause for his resignation has been listed but allegations of bribes and corruption in the Boston PD implicated Munro in the scandal. Police Commissioner O'Toole, though leaving Boston shortly, promised a full investigation.

Filling in the place left vacant by Munro will be a Boston local Jennifer Simmons. Ms. Simmons brings many years of legal experience to the job.

[the article goes on to talk at length how Munro's corruption is the reason crime in Boston has gotten so bad recently]
