This was my original e-mail (to Patricia Lancaster)...
"Can't wait to see how you like your new digs in the penitentiary! That's where you are gonna go for what you have done! Maybe you can be Commissioner of the prison you are in! I don't care you if haven't been convicted of anything! Who the hell do you think you are putting people's lives at risk! I hope you rot in hell for this! I hope the investigators crawl through your life and destroy it like you destroyed these people's lives!
HOW DARE YOU!"
Four days later, I received this:

I am Detective Trentacosta of The New York City Police Department DOI Squad. I am in receipt of your e-mail sent on Dec 10 2007 at 1542 Hr can you please contact me so I may discuss this further with you.
The detective said it sounded threatening. I told him, "Bullshit, if that were the case you would be on my door step arresting me. If you would like I will clarify what I am talking about." So I wrote back to him and clarified... This is my clarification e-mail:
"In light of the recent articles in the newspapers about the DOB commissioner and the dealings with these contractors and architects and signing agreements/stipulations etc. etc. regarding self certification "HOW DARE YOU"...
These so called contractors, architects and politicians like Tommy Huang, Scarano, Dennis Gallagher etc. etc. are tearing up my town of Maspeth, Middle Village etc. etc. The residents and I are absolutely sick and tired of it and the corruption of the DOB and it's inspectors as well. Go check out what contractors did on Hull [Avenue] in Maspeth. Go check out what Huang and another person did on Mazeau Street. Go take a look at what's happening to St. Saviour's. I could come up with a lot more contracting nightmares but I don't have enough time to write them all down. I could also go to the the DOB website and look at all the inspections that are so clearly BS. For Christ sake you can't even get your people to spell check. Half the damn items are so poorly written my 4 year old nephew looks like he can write better than that.
The [story of the] poor woman and her family who were in the paper recently with their contracting nightmare is an absolute disgrace and you should be held accountable for it and be thrown in jail if you have been cutting deals under the table. This is what prompted me to write. I still say HOW DARE YOU! Who do you think you are putting people's lives at risk to make big corporate happy! It's thoroughly disgusting and we want it to stop immediately. Go check out the blogs and other websites regarding this type of stuff going on and you will see how the people are really getting fed up!!!
Go check out Queens Crap and you will see what's happening.
The bullshit is beyond compare and will all come out in the wash eventually!
Pass this on to the commissioner of DOB if it matters. I really don't think so.
