Could it be Jimmy Hoffa? An indoor swimming pool? A printing press?
According to reliable sources, inspectors from the Department of Buildings went to visit the mysterious Holden residence after several previous failed attempts to inspect his basement. Unfortunately for the hard-working inspectors, Bob called the 104th Precinct to have them forcibly removed from in front of his home.
This strikes us as grossly hypocritical of Mr. Holden. Bob spews his over-development and illegal conversion rhetoric ad nauseum. He continuously lambastes DOB for non-enforcement of building regulations and encourages residents to squeal on their neighbors if they suspect suspicious construction activity. He continually screams that city agencies work FOR the Tax Payers!
However, as we are all aware, the rules do not apply to King Holden. Bob prevented DOB inspectors from doing the job that we the tax payers pay them to perform. In addition, the 104 th precinct should be ashamed for bowing down to Bob. Since when do the police prevent city agencies from performing their rightful and lawful duties? I know residents who have called the 104th to enforce Stop Work Orders and were ignored. I wonder what would happen if building inspectors came to my home and I called the police. There is no doubt I'd be waiting months for a response.
Is Holden getting special treatment from our local law enforcement? Are they afraid that they will be attacked in the next issue of the Juniper Berry and the Forum Crap? We suggest that the new Captain focus on crime and quality of life issues while allowing city inspectors to do their jobs.
Robert Holden is a two-faced, self-righteous, egotistical and hypocritical despot. Bob truly believes he should not be subjected to the same scrutiny as the common folk living in the community.
We believe that reasonable people with nothing to hide would allow inspectors entry into their home if they have not violated any laws and have nothing to hide.
Therefore, this situation causes the reasonable person to ponder, what is Bob hiding in his basement?
Things that make you go Hmmmm....
