THE FOLLOWING IS AN EMAIL SENT TO THE NEWSROOM BY PHYLISHA DELLAPIA, WIFE OF LELAND POLICE LT. RICK DELLAPIA. AS OF TODAY, NO ONE FROM THE TOWN OF LELAND OR THE LELAND POLICE DEPARTMENT HAVE COME FORWARD TO DENY ANY OF THE DETAILS REPORTED IN OUR ONGOING INVESTIGATION.

WWAY Manager,

I’m writing in reference to the abuse that my husband and I have encountered from your online blog. Per your comment policy WWAY reserves the right to delete comments that are abusive, off-topic or include ad hominem attacks. All of the posts on these blogs which include my husband and I are personal attacks; they do not include any evidence to back up any claims that have been posted on this website. These attacks have deeply affected my family, our children and our outside relationships. They have called our family out in a threatening matter and have damaged our reputation in our community. Your site facilitates cyber bullying. The comments on your site are abusive, off-topic and have attacked my family personally, instead of discussing the argument itself. WWAY is allowing these “bullies” to torment us without any repercussion, by giving them a forum where they can hide in anonymity. These posts have given out an officer’s wife’s vehicle information which could be used to provoke an offline attack by a hate or predator group. How is that information beneficial to your story?

You have allowed these officers and their families to be persecuted because they work at the Leland Police Department and carry rank. My husband did not shoot Officer Lewis; that is a fact. My husband was involved in an accident, where approximately 20 photos were taken before the vehicles were moved from the roadway; that is a fact. My husband has organized a softball game against the Leland Fire Department to collect Toys for Tots for the last five (5) years; that is a fact. My husband organized the first “Cop Camp in Leland”; that too is a fact. However, these no name individuals have posted that he stole toys from the Toys for Tots, he is having an affair with a fellow officer’s wife, he is always at home while on duty, he is having sex at the station during the day, etc. This is the age of cell phone technology and no one has any footage, please. These attacks are personal; not one has presented any evidence of such behavior. In one of the post, KBLUE2221984 actually wrote, “It tickles me to see how much these comments actually affect the department.” In another post, LOL wrote, after the post references an affair, “Bet that puts a kink in that alliance!!!!” lol … How is that relevant to the story unless it is to destroy their reputation?

I would like you to ask yourself, if your sources were so creditable and upstanding, why is all this “so called corruption” just coming to light? By not coming forth as a victim or witness, these officers/sources who took an oath to uphold the law, should be held accountable for impeding an investigation. I believe in justice and if anyone is proven to be guilty of a crime, even if it is my husband, I believe strongly that they should be dealt with in a court of law.

I’m requesting you remove any abusive, threatening, off-topic and ad hominem attacks toward my husband and me from your blog sites. (A famous Internet axiom called Godwin’s Law holds that the longer an online discussion continues, the higher the odds that someone will compare somebody else to a Nazi.) This site has devolved into name-calling and polemics. I understand you have to balance their freedom of speech with our rights; however, you are violating your own policy by allowing these posts to be submitted.

Thank you for your time and assistance in this matter,

Phylisha DellaPia

Is it possible could it be,
that the legend has written
what the clowns can’t see.

The legend he listens for many lies.
while the three stooges disapear befor thier eyes.

He wishes for justice,
some could expect.
Anger and fear he can detect.

Farris he agrees these are the ones
and the legend he picks each one as thier done.

Right knows no wrong when the rules they scribe.
The legend he knows they cannot hide.

so before his time comes at the hands of three.
he retreats with his king,so to be free

behind he leaves, a army of good.
while the three cover themselves,
with a dark and dirty hood

The legend is proud he did a good job
while the three did what you read on this here blog.

The Legend Lives.

Mike, son you are so far out in space I can’t even see you with a telescope. No matter what kind if info you have from anyone is just not relevant enough. But if you are not scared, put it all out there for everyone to see. They had an audit and passed, the state came in and found nothing. I am confident that the FBI could come in and still everything would still be just fine. You need to calm down on all the people hiding behind screen names. They probably wouldn’t if people like you didn’t gossip and start piles of messes to ruin peoples ways of life that doesn’t concern you. But like everyone, you are entitled to opinions, I guess that means you are in the right career for yourself.

when all this is over you will find that you are only a legend in your own mind. the truth be known my good sir is that the older you get the better you were. Until this is all over let’s wait it out and cease and desist from this poison you spout.As for now my good sir I will bid you good bye and return to the real world where rumors don’t fly.This poet makes a rhyme every time but in the end it all ain’t worth a dime.

More famous? Another one of your delusions. It’s only making you look more stupid and mentally challenged. The more people have negative comments for you, the more you eat it up…which makes you s-t-u-p-i-d. You do know what that means, right? In case you have any doubt, let me enlighten you:

Definitions of stupid (adj)
stu·pid [ stpəd ]
1.regarded as unintelligent: regarded as showing a lack of intelligence, perception, or common sense.
2.silly: irritatingly silly or time-wasting.

Synonyms: unintelligent, dull, brainless, obtuse, witless

Wow! They all seem to fit you perfectly! I found it in the dictionary easily. I just looked in the dictionary under the word, “stupid,” and it said, “see Kblue.”

Comparing yourself to Larry the Cable Guy and Will Ferrell is only wishful thinking. Your brand of silly non-humor won’t make you a penny, and it only makes you famous in your own mind. Groucho Marks once said, “Humor is reason gone mad.” He must have known you in a former life.
