Thursday eve, Hogan, beer in hand., was walking down the road. He is not allowed to recreate on the road, so he should be arrested again, maybe after a few nights in the Lewis Jail, he will stay at home. Just walking to his property an back is recreating, not ingressing and egressing, the dastardly fiend. He looked at me and spat!


Its Thursday morning, and the police must have been called 15 times! Mr. Hogan, in a skull mask, whistled his way down the road to his property, getting the doggs riled up, even tossed one aside when it came too close. There's nothing where he' s going, he just goes there, waits for a while, whistles a few tunes, then walks back scaring the neighbors and dogs to death. Imagine, having the anger to grab a dog and toss him into the ditch! Animal cruelty! He should be locked up, and so far, the police have yet to charge him. Last year he was charged nearly 20 time for the same thing. What gives? Could it be because he sued the police? Pansies! To think this man was on the ballot for Judge!


NYSP officers were asked once again to arrest Mr. Hogan for walking down his driveway (and smelling the roses) in a most aggressive fashion. Neighbors yelled at him to "go home", Hogan just laughed and called them a stream of expletives. We all thought that swearing in public is a crime, but no, not for Mr. Hogan. He gets a pass from law enforcement because he is suing them for malicious prosecution and false arrest. He is a menace and needs to be locked up. The miscreant! He has been charged with felonies, why isn't he locked up?
