You’re only a victim if Duh-Soye says you are!

In today’s Citizens Voice: City Police Chief Gerard Duh-Soye dismissed complaints from victims of crime who were billed towing, and storage fees by LAG Towing. Stating that folks like Randall Panetta, whose car was stolen, and then located in the city, by Luzerne County Sherriff’s, aren’t victims of crime, as described in LAG’s contract with the City of Wilkes Barre.

So even though LAG’s contract states on Page 8 (i) Additionally, Contractor shall tow, free of charge, any vehicle owned by any victim of any crime. Chief Duh-Soye believes that if another police agency initiates the tow, then that somehow relieves LAG of its contract obligation.

When asked about the Panetta transaction, Glodzik said Jan. 25 he did not improperly charge Panetta but refused to say anything else.

  • Good thinking Leo, keep quiet until the Chief comes up with a good cover.

According to our dimwitted Chief of Police, Leo would be correct here, as the Panetta’s apparently were never identified as “Victims of Crime” by the Wilkes Barre Police Department, so Leo saw no reason to cut these folks any slack!

On Friday, Duh-Soye said the car was located by an officer with the Luzerne County sheriff's office, who then asked Wilkes-Barre police to request a tow. Although LAG Towing transported the car, Duh-Soye said the company's billing is not subject to its city contract when it is towing cars for other agencies.

  • OK now I’m really confused: Luzerne County sheriff's office, asked Wilkes-Barre police to request a tow??? 

Wouldn’t that make it a city tow, as WBPD requested the tow, of a stolen car, thus making it a "victim of crime" vehicle??? By Duh-Soye's own admission, and his hair splitting interpretation of the LAG contract, the Panetta’s should NOT have been charged, as WBPD requested the tow!!!

Stay tuned for more LAG excuses, and Duh-Soye spin as it emerges from police headquarters.
