The Emperor's New Clothes or Hawkeye?

While it may be hard to tell the difference between the Hawkeye scandal and the story of The Emperor’s New Clothes, there are many in the news business attempting to help.

The Emperor’s New Clothes: As you know was about a pair of shysters (let’s call them J.J. & Bill) who duped their ruler into buying, and wearing nothing. Under the pretense of, if you can’t see it, then you’re too stupid.

Hawkeye: "They did exactly what we intended them to do," said Greg Barrouk of the Hawkeye board.

Unless you wanted the camera system to do what their original RFP: Request for Proposal called for in section B,

  • “Video cameras may be mixture of high resolution, high sensitivity integral color, capable of identifying personnel, vehicle license plates

It wasn’t until one honest boy said “the emperor is naked” that folks all woke up, and said “the boy is right, the emperor is naked”.

Now many Wilkes Barre Citizens are questioning whether Hawkeye did what we the taxpayers were told it would, could, or should do, when we were duped into paying for Hawkeye.

So like in The Emperor’s New Clothes, perhaps Hawkeye has been working under the same theory, if you can’t see the vehicle license plates, your simply too stupid.

Looking at Joe Holden's investigation into Hawkeye we see Alan Wohlstetter, of Fox Rothschild LLP in Philadelphia is the Hawkeye board solicitor. 

You may remember Alan when he, and J.J. hatched a plan that cost our Parking Authority a couple of Hundred Thousand Dollars, in legal, and consulting fees, when attempting to lease or sell the authority down the river, for a Fast, Cool $20 Million Dollars.

Alan even had the nerve to backdate and submit bills for what he said was a billing oversight, after the Parking Authority saw this scheme for what it was, and pulled the plug.
