The Fairhope City Council has bullied the Mayor at Council meetings and other public venues. The first council meetings of this council’s term, were disgraceful. The “leadership” of the bulling was headed by Council President Jack Burrell, who refuses to share the Council President chair, and is supported by Councilmen Boone and Brown. Councilmen Conyers and Robinson were mute, but complicit.
Bulling, intimidation, and victimization are one in the same. Intimidation is a major weapon in the Baldwin County political and judicial arena and some “men” find women an easy target.
Women need to speak up more.
One women is:
BARSTOOL | THE RIPP REPORT / BALDWIN COUNTY LEGAL EAGLE
Corruption has many faces. In Fairhope the local arrest of a bar owner, Ronan McSharry, drew little more than a paragraph of coverage and little or no print media has covered the story. FAIRHOPE, Ala.
The VICTIM, Paula DiNardi, in this case had to endure several postponements of the case and over 8 hours in the Fairhope Municipal Court, only to be victimized again. Paula was the latest victim of McSharry and has had her life turned upside down since the incident.
Paula has for the most part has stood alone in her attempt for justice. The City Attorney has represented her poorly and the defense attorney wants to politicize an assault case into a continued witch hunt against the Mayor.
Ronan McSharry was found guilty In Fairhope Municipal Court, this last week, of public intoxication and assault, sentenced to 180 days in jail, with time served during his re-hab stay. McSharry was represented by Defense attorney John Beck, well known for victimizing the victims. You can be sure an appeal will follow. McSharry does not want to go to jail.
Mr. McSharry, through another attorney attempted to “settle the issue” with DiNardi, providing she remain silent for life and not show up for court, thus the charges would be dropped. It is the Ripp Report’s understanding both offers were rejected. Her reason for not taking the money and running is quite simple. She feels that women should not be beat up by men, and then paid off to remain silent.
Mr Beck not only defended McSharry but he wandered into a line of questioning that politicized, and was not relevant, to the assault and public intoxication case. Mr Beck has a way of victimizing the victim and making the guilty party look innocent.
DA continues pursuit of Spanish Fort rape case – Lagniappe Mobile
DA continues pursuit of Spanish Fort rape case – Lagniappe Mobile
The Baldwin County District Attorney’s office has no plans to drop charges against 18-year-old Cameron Harrison, the Spanish Fort High School (SFHS) student accused of raping an unconscious 16-year-old female at an open house party in Timber Creek last month. Harrison’s attorney John Beck claims the defendant is falsely accused. Beck said the district attorney’s …
Note: Archive of original source.
Paula was represented, in court, by the City Attorney Marcus McDowell, who job it is, to vigorously, represent the victim. However Mr. McDowell neither objected or interfered with Mr. Beck’s line of questioning which had no relevant value to the case.
The Municipal Judge allowed Mr Beck to go unchallenged. Beck asked DiNardi a series of questions related to me, Paul Ripp aka Ripp Report. and my involvement in the case. She explained that the Ripp Report, a non profit consumer organization, was acting as an advocate for her. Why the judge nor the city attorney did not ask, Mr Beck, what relevance it had to do with the case, I do not know.
Then Mr Beck asked a series of questions about the Mayor, and her alleged involvement, in the case or her connection to Paul Ripp, The Ripp Report. Beck just rambled on without any objection being heard.
It appears that the politicization of the case will be Mr. Beck’s defense, supported by victimization of the victim.
The City Attorney did not even mention the medical damages, over 6000.00 dollars, that DiNardi has incurred, nor did he mention that Mr. McSharry has a green card and is not a citizen of the U.S. WHY?
DiNardi not only finds her life turned upside down but now has come to the realization that her case is being used in an ongoing political witch hunt, focused on defeating Mayor Wilson in 2020.
The Mayor and the Ripp Report are not relevant to the criminal charges against McSharry.
Get ready folks for 2020 because this is all about politics and politicians, Judges and Attorney’s keeping their jobs. By the way McSharry’s has a J Burrell sandwich on the menu. J Burrell is also the Council President that secured the City Attorney his job as well as the Municipal Judge, it is all connected folks.
Since Mr Beck appears to be ignorant about what the Ripp Report is all about we will be sure to sign him up for the newsletter. In the meantime here are two articles that Mr. Beck may find helpful.
LOSER | THE RIPP REPORT / BALDWIN COUNTY LEGAL EAGLE
The Ripp Report is a Non-Profit Consumer Organization. The Ripp Report handles consumer issues, offers consultation on specific issues, family court issues and exposes political corruption.
EXPOSURE | THE RIPP REPORT / BALDWIN COUNTY LEGAL EAGLE
The Ripp Report is a non-profit organization, politically non-partisan. The focus of The Ripp Report is political corruption and exposing the elected officials involved. In the past we specialized on…
It is women like Paula DiNardi that make a difference.
Stay tuned this is going to get real interesting.
Is the Burrell burger good? I heard that McSharry makes the best burger this side of the River Shannon.
To be serious, that bunch is s mutual admiration society.
The Burrell burger is definitely overrated.
Too much catchup and not enough meat.
Kinda cheesey if i do sat so my damn self.
Burrell and Joe Biden.
That is an insult to Joe Biden
Jack will do well in Congress.
Go Jack go!
Hey Burrell4fh, why don’t you take Jack back to Mississippi, run his campaign, and you get him in Congress to “serve” Mississippi?
Don’t worry about fundraising, Corte, Truland, and DR Horton will send the checks your way…
Burrell is so rude and crude.
I guess that’s how theydo you in MS!!
It would be great to send his bullying butt BACk to Mississippi
At the Nix center the folks were saying it’s time for Jack to go. I guess that does it then. He sure has alienated a lot of people with his behavior.
Jack is a jackass and I don’t know how he has hijacked the city of Fairhope, but he has. The old people believe that he is a ‘Christian’ (whatever that means to them). I stopped going to the City Council meetings because those that spoke up for Jack appeared to be suffering from dementia. The younger people here are great but they are waiting for Jack to die. The balance of the City Council are thought of as Jack’s minions; is there no man on the CC that can be President? Jay Robinson has done a great job and is not hated. Boone & Burrell need to get out from beneath Jack’s thumb.
Jay seems like he is under Jack’s thumb too. They are all pro-development and pro-for themselves. Jay is not the sharpest knife. He was dead wrong about the change in government legislation. His legal opinion was invalid and erroneous. He is not a lawyer I would hire. The way he flicks his wrist when he talks is condescending, at best, and it really makes one wonder…this council is a joke. They follow lockstep a MS joke.
He does nothing for Fairhope. I hate that he may be the best we have on council, but it’s nothing to brag about. Not involved at all in plans to move the city forward. The others are against moving forward.
Until we get districts with accountability, we will always be stuck with this type of council.
Agree. However, why would you ever consider someone like Jay (a follower) doing a good job? What has he done exactly? Absolutley nothing. None of them have.
Just because you’re not an asshole doesn’t mean you need to be in office.
Women like the Mayor who make a difference too. Standing up to bullies and for what is right. We need more people like this in office.
Sure. Some people disgrace actual victims. Just go ask to see the video of two people not even talking or having any interaction elevate to assault. Some people cannot get enough attention. Some people do things for money. Educate yourself before you play judge.
Mister Ripp you supported Mr. Burrell in the last election.
I guess you will be endorsing his opponent this next time?
I supported Jack twice however once elected he started drinking Cant’s cool aid.Jack half burned his bridge with me over his unethical method to settle the Dyas lawsuit,and then lied to the public saying it was a purchase not a legal settlement.
He burned the second half of the bridge when he used his Airport Authority position to sway a bid that favored board members and the municipal judge, whose private jet he had been flying in FREE, and before the bid. Last but not least is his outright bulling, in public, of the Mayor. He has no respect for the position of Mayor or women.I will strongly support Jack’s opposition. Let’s not forget about his police record, he keep secret, and has yet to explain.
Blah blah blah! Burrelll is serving what are you doing besides report inaccurate stories and create conspiracy theories against people that do not support your political party.
In the run-up to the last election, Jack Burrell railed against the Fly Creek Apartments, promising to stand up for Fairhope voters and NOT vote to approve apartments (btw, Robert Brown was in lockstep with him). After Jack was re-elected (and Brown was elected), they both decided to vote in favor of the apartments b/c they love Corte. Enough from both of them! I am not one of those accusing Brown of kickbacks from the City but I believe that it’s long past time for Burrell and his buddies to get off of the Council.
I don’t think Jack knows what he stands for.
He stands for nothing but himself.
Snedeker looks super dirty.
Beck should not be an Attorney – heard too much shit about him. The City Attorney is not the “City Attorney” – he is for Burrell & all the corruption in Fairhope. Dig a little deeper!! He and Burrell meet behind closed doors & get paid off for doing favors for certain citizens. It is more than obvious of what gets approved & how it gets approved to benefit certain citizens. Watch also who is on certain committees & also on Fairhope Single Tax – BIG BIG conflict of interest. Again there is meetings behind closed doors. WHO do they think they are fooling? It WILL come out. Again, the City Attorney is NOT for the City Of Fairhope. I hope it is all fixing to blow up!!
Any facts to support this … just one maybe?
Not going to blow up but continue to be business as usual
City attorney knows his job will not exist if Mayor Wilson runs for another term and wins. That’s why he fights her at every turn.
FyI …Mayor does not appoint Judge, Clerk,Treasurer or the City Attorney.
Beck is a great attorney. Where are all the liberals when it comes to protecting the innocent until proven guilty. Such bullshit
I have heard many things about Burrell. If he runs for congress it should come out. He is not congressional material. Let’s leave it at that.
Every time that I hear that Jack Burrell is going to run for AIA “Anything in Alabama” I laugh my butt off. To even think he would remotely think about this has everyone, even the buttholes, laughing too! Cannot wait to show you how we can get rid of someone by showing them they will not get the votes! I guess they have already counted up and considered themselves elected. Please encourage Jack Burrell to run for AIA….Anything of Alabama. We will all be laughing!!! Can’t get enough of it!!! Do it Jack and we will all show you a picture of what a dumbass you really are. By the way Jack, just look in a mirror, you already have the picture. LOL!!! Heard you can’t go back to Mississippi either!!!
Too many FACTS to mention here. Do you not watch the meetings? There are many times Jack (OBNOXIOUS JACK) who thinks he is above anything. (Needs to go back to Mississippi where he came from) actually I am sure they ran him Off!!! He has already met with certain citizens before (he rats on himself as he cannot keep his bad ass mouth shut). Do you not know that Kant got paid (records were sealed at one time) for doing things he should not?? Why in Gods Holy name is is not in Jail is beyond me – hopefully it is coming!! I am sure Burrell & Boone was involved in this also. Also, Kant filed things fraudulently to get money – YES I know that for a FACT also. If it does not come out soon – I will go personally to the local & national media on this!!!
Still …no facts. Name one please. “Kant got paid and Kant filed things” are not facts. Statements of opinion but no factual basis at all. Paid by whom and when and what did he file and how was Jack or Boone involved. Facts …please name one.
Hope you have actual facts to tell the local and National media.
First of all your facts are never right because you never fact check before you print. Bone and Barrel has The J Burrell sandwich on their menu. Mcsharrys has nothing named after Burrell on the menu. Secondly Bone and Barrel owns Little Whiskey where this Barstool incident occurred at 1ish in the morning after both involved had been drinking all day. Conveniently you leave out that our “MAYOR” also owns a bar that competes with McSharrys and to drive this Irish foreigner out of town would by far benefit her and yes the owners of your loved J Burrell sandwich. So you speak of political games in our small town then you need to do your homework and by connecting Burrell and McSharry with this incident it has become apparent that you are desperately trying to create conspiracy theories that could not possibly exist. Sounds good in your dreams of pushing the mayors liberal agenda so more idiots like yourself can destroy every business in this town that is not in agreement with your politics much less your “MAYORS” profit. One more detail you would know if you did your homework is that most of the town has seen the video of the barstool incident including your “MAYOR” at her own request. And oh yes by the way the night after the barstool incident another person fell off a barstool in Little Whiskey. This time an ambulance was called not a cop maybe because it did not involve a competing business owner? Even better than that the video of that incident was deleted because to the benefit of the establishment the hard drive crashed that night. And wow as luck had it the only video they had left was that of McSharry. Keep printing my friend and create your Political destruction of the Woman theory and when you are served I guess that prosecutor will represent you all the better just because you are a man. Sick!
So after my first post was deleted probably due to being way too accurate I have to post again. First of all you never fact check so this is not going to be pretty. McSharrys does not have anything named after Burrell on the menu only Bone and Barrel does. Bone and Barrel owns Little Whiskey which is the establishment that the barstool incident occurred. If you had done your homework you would know that most people in Fairhope have seen the barstool
Video including your “MAYOR” that requested to see it. Secondly you would also state that your “MAYOR” owns a bar that competes with McSharry. Thirdly, you would state that the BARSTOOL incident occurred around 1AM after both involved had drank all day long. Trying to connect Burrell to this is the most apparent desperation attempt I think I have had to witness. Funny that an employee of Little Whiskey decided to play judge and jury the night that your “victim” was attacked by such a tyrant. A tyrant that happens to own a competing bar with not only Little Whiskey but your “MAYOR”. Another fact the night after your barstool incident another patron was knocked off a barstool. Conveniently an ambulance was called not a cop!? Could that happen because it did not involve a competing bar owner?? Well let’s keep going with facts from someone that actually checks them. Amazingly the hard drive crashed the night after your “victim” was knocked off the barstool. And even better than that the only video they could salvage was the one with McSharry. WOW!! Thank you Jesus. Being a logical not politically involved resident I would have to question who really benefits from running an Irish bar owner foreigner out of our perfect small town!? To try to spin your conspiracy theory is a total joke. And to include BURRELL is a testimony to your complete hate for someone that is actually serving our city. You are sick!! And your victim
Card for someone that is actually a victim is horrible!
