The public drinking water supply in the City of Mount Vernon may be at risk because of convicted criminal Mayor Ernie Davis' greed and backdoor deal making.  If a terrorist wanted to tamper with and poison the drinking water supply in the area, the City of Mount Vernon would appeal immensely to someone looking to engage in nefarious behavior.  That is, because The City of Mount Vernon is a lawless society like the Wild West where pay to play politics is embraced and is part of the local culture.

It is well known that Mayor Ernie Davis is known to break laws and do as he pleases.  Just recently Mayor Davis plead guilty to (2) Federal tax evasion crimes, which shows Mayor Davis' complete disregard of the law. 

Westchester County and New York State law mandates that all new water service connections have a device installed called a backflow preventer or backflow prevention device.  A backflow preventer is a means or mechanism to prevent backflow. Backflow is the undesirable reversal of flow of non-potable water or other substances through a cross-connection and into the piping of a public water system or consumer's potable water system.

Backflow into a public water system can pollute or contaminate the water in that system (i.e., backflow into a public water system can make the water in that system unusable or unsafe to drink), and each water supplier has a responsibility to provide water that is usable and safe to drink under all foreseeable circumstances. Furthermore, City of Mount Vernon residents generally have absolute faith that water delivered to them through the public water system is always safe to drink. For these reasons, The Mount Vernon Board of water supply must take reasonable precautions to protect the public water system against backflow. There are two types of backflow... backpressure backflow and backsiphonage.

Backpressure backflow is backflow caused by a downstream pressure that is greater than the upstream or supply pressure in a public water system or consumer's potable water system. Backpressure (i.e., downstream pressure that is greater than the potable water supply pressure) can result from an increase in downstream pressure, a reduction in the potable water supply pressure, or a combination of both. Increases in downstream pressure can be created by pumps, temperature increases in boilers, etc. Reductions in potable water supply pressure occur whenever the amount of water being used exceeds the amount of water being supplied, such as during water line flushing, fire fighting, or breaks in water mains.

Backsiphonage is backflow caused by a negative pressure (i.e., a vacuum ~ or partial vacuum) in a Public water system or consumer's potable water system. The effect is similar to drinking water through a straw. Backsiphonage can occur when there is a stoppage of water supply due to nearby fire fighting, a break in a water main, etc.

There are two businesses in the City of Mount Vernon that would appeal to a terrorist if one were looking to commit an act of terrorism against the people in the area.  Sue's Rendezvous located at 96 Gramatan Avenue and the Steam House restaurant located at 128 Gramatan Avenue.  Can you imagine the devastation that would occur if a terrorist poisoned and/or tampered with the local water supply?  Local reservoirs are heavily guarded against terrorist, which would make it virtually impossible to tamper with the water supply.  Sue's Rendezvous and the Steam House Restaurant are not guarded against tampering and/or poisoning the local water supply. 

Each and every week thousands of partygoers pack these two establishments that according to Westchester County law and health department requirements, should not be operating.  Even though it was mandated that these two businesses install the required backflow devices, Mayor Davis instructed his staff and his building commissioner to ignore the back flow requirements and let the businesses operate without hindrance and interference from city officials.   The same proprietor that owns Sue’s Rendezvous owns both properties.  Sources say that Mayor Davis and the proprietor of Sue's Rendezvous are friendly and is a major supporter and campaign donor of Mayor Davis. 

A complaint was filed with the City of Mount Vernon Department of Buldings, but Mayor Ernie Davis has instructed the building department staff not to take any enforcement action against his "friends".  

Please call the Westchester Department of Health immediately at (914) 813-5000 and file a complaint and 
demand that they enforce the law for Sue's Rendezvous.   Your health is at risk.   To be continued........

Mount Vernon Exposed has obtained exclusive footage of the false arrest of Mount Vernon Exposed publisher Samuel L. Rivers that shows poorly trained Mount Vernon police officers in action.

On Tuesday, November 11, 2014, Rivers was filming a traffic stop on Sandford Blvd in Mount Vernon.  Rivers told Mount Vernon Exposed that he began filming the stop because he witnessed the car detained for an extended amount of time.  Rivers also said that he filmed the incident because of the recent shooting by disgraced P.O. Sgt. Marcucilli, a rogue police officer that has cost Mount Vernon taxpayers close to $1M in lawsuit settlements due to police misconduct and police brutality. 

Rivers also revealed to Mount Vernon Exposed has been investigating allegations of misconduct by Mount Vernon police officers for the past 5 years and will be releasing video in the coming days that  will show the Mount Vernon Police Department has a pattern and practice of violating department policy . 

While filming, P.O. Greene abruptly stops what he is doing and arrests Mr. Rivers without warning and for no apparent reason only stating he was arresting Mr. Rivers for "harassing a police officer”.   Mr. Rivers simply asked the police officers why they were not wearing their hats when the Mount Vernon Police Departmental manual instructs them to do so while outside of their vehicles.  The manual specifically states:



Regulation Police hat with eight (8) points; blue piping with black adjustable hatband. Worn with M.V.P.D. Police Officer silver hat shield indicating shield number. Cap may be removed while in Department vehicle while on R.M.P. duty, but must be worn squarely on head when not in vehicle.

A. Optional Uniform Hat for summer wear is the same as above except with open blue cane band for ventilation.

B. Optional Faux Fur Trooper Cap, with cap device mounted in the front. Color black or navy blue, quilted insulated linings, fold down flaps.

Mount Vernon Exposed later learned that P.O. Greene is probationary officer, which means he can be fired within 18 months for not performing his job properly and without interference from the Mount Vernon P.B.A.  P.O. Greene should be relieved of his job duties immediately because he already shown that he is a huge liability to Mount Vernon taxpayers.

The video also shows that white police officers have trouble communicating with the black community.  Officers were seen on video telling the crowd recording the incident to "Get the fuck out the street" and not answering questions from concerned onlookers in a humane and respectable manner.

Rivers could be heard telling the probationary officer to call a Sergeant or supervisor to the scene because Rivers knew he was being arrested illegally.  The officer ignored Rivers repeated calls for a supervisor to come to the scene.  Instead, the probationary officer takes command of the scene while more experienced officers looked on and assisted the probationary officer with making the illegal arrest.

In the video when the supervisor finally does arrive on the scene, the probationary officer continues to do as he pleases and even goes so far as to yank Mr. Rivers with excessive force in the back of the police car while in handcuffs.   Throughout this entire ordeal, the probationary officer does not confer with his superior.

Nothing short of termination is the appropriate disciplinary action for this police officer.

In just a few short hours, Ernie Davis and comrades will pull off the heist of the century via the LED lighting contract to replace 4,400 streetlights throughout the City of Mount Vernon. 

A complaint was filed with the U.S. Attorney regarding the Request for Proposal to replace all of the streetlights in the City of Mount Vernon.

Former DPW Commissioner Terrance Horton an Mayor Davis have teamed up and rigged the Request for Proposal so that it is awarded to Horton's sham vocational program or through another contractor of their choosing. 

The request for proposal was never advertised legally in the newspaper so companies outside the world of Ernie Davis would see it.  Federal investigators should invest in renting space in City Hall until Ernie Davis is sent to jail because Ernie and his minions are determined to loot Mount Vernon dry.

For starters, the Request for Proposal specifically states that no proposer may contact City personnel regarding the proposal.  Not only did Terrance Horton violate this provision of the RFP, Mr. Horton had a gala celebrating the awarding of the contract before the RFP period even concluded.  City Councilmembers Yuhanna Edwards, Marcus Griffith, and Roberta Apuzzo were also in attendance.

What is even more troubling is that Davis, Horton, and Griffith went to Korea to meet with a company that they promised business to regarding the street light conversion.  That smells fishy.  How can Mayor promise a company business and why would a company promise to invest millions opening up a LED factory in Mount Vernon if they weren't guaranteed the contract?  How can Mount Vernon officials mandate that a proposer purchase from a specific manufacturer?

Sources have told Mount Vernon Exposed that Horton and his attorneys personally drafted then RFP then handed it to the City for distribution to the public.  The RFP is tailored in such a way that only Horton's company or those picked by Davis would be awarded the contract.

The F.B.I. must put Ernie under the microscope like never before he bankrupts the City of Mount Vernon.  The F.B.I. should also look at all of the vendors who were emailed RFP and start looking into their relationships with criminal Mayor Davis and their business practices.  We can be certain that they will find something for sure.
