The Humming Bird.

My attention was caught by these words taken from the book Things Fall a Part

African Proverb

Since Men has learned how to shoot without missing

(You are being preyed upon)

The Humming Bird has learned how to feed without ever perching.

(Xaymica infiltrado Americano)

(Your life has to be an exact case study)

During the 80âs I migrated to NYC. In NYC,
I attended JHS 204; I graduated and went on to attend LIC High School. I graduated from
William Cullen Bryant High School in 1988;
however, I identified myself with the kids from
LIC and Queens Bridge. I was recruited to attend the Criminal Justice Program at John
Jay College. Seven years later, I completed my studies; I had completed all relevant credits in the Masters of Art criminal Justice Program.
I had a specialty in criminal law and criminal procedure. I attended the Masterâs Program while I worked as a Fraud investigator and City Official. Being a Fraud investigator and City official is the only full time possession I have held since I
graduated from John Jay. Currently I have completed 16 years on the job.

    Good job... someone had the guts to speak out on the system's corruption and fraternization!! There are a lot of good people that deserve promotions but because of the "buddy system" that exists within the system they do not get promoted. Although a little getting carried away with the homophobia.

    In the words of Flavor Flav...WHOOOOOAAAA. The truth of the matt

    In the words of Flavor Flav...WHOOOOOAAAA. The truth of the matter is that Myers is not lying and that's what's bugging out everyone. He is a bit homophobic and got carried away, but he's a little fellow and can be easily taken advantage of... remember he was whopped by a girl and he yelled WHHOOOOAAAA..But back to business...This agency has got to stop with the favoritism. Do a survey of your satellite... ask management to name all the liaisons at the job and what they do. Look at who they pick and ask yourself, are they close friends, are they lovers, are they family, do they do yes and no thank you's. The truth is that only these people get recognized and are given very good evaluations. How else can you get a very good in this agency, enlighten me without volunteering for some event or being a liaison to a job that you rarely get called to do. Investigators delivering cases, whooooaaaa what does that have to do with fraud investigation..you have staff overburden with clients and they driving around the city, vehicle liaisons..YYYY cant every assigned person get sent to service their own cars... once again upper management have their favorites wasting city time, language liaison....please.. we never use those numbers no matter what language comes out the client's mouth. What about us small people, who does not want to kiss up to management but do our work.. Y cant very good be on work related topics..does any boss think they can be a boss without workers? The majority of this agency are just regular hard working people. I watch how ideas are stolen and statistic are used, inventions and ideas given to management and presented as their own, credited on their own outstanding evaluations. You have some boss you never say, I got this idea from.....UNLESS its one of the favorites. I have watched promotion blocked and hard workers skipped over. I have seen people work her for over 10 years and still is on entry level..my God are you serious....give back to the slave plantation BEV/EVR/BFI.....even slaves were emancipated but not us...We finally go rid of the biggest racist and still we have many more slave masters holding us back..Let's hope we can find some speck of light in Sheehan.. so far so good. I have never seen management worked so hard before...he wants accountability and it's finally to ALL LEVELS...Yes.. We the cotton pickers are tired, the none ass kissers are tired, the forgotten are tired...the underdogs are tired. We work too and our numbers are used everyday and to continue this agency. Myers I say good job in writing the book, not for destroying people's life but for the corruption and making people read. I have never witness so many people reading before. So thank for the hook on phonics experience. I have a suggestion to MR. SHEEHAN and I'm sure it will get back to him, because this is the only outlet right now in this agency.....design a website where staff can express themselves freely like this and then you will know what is broken, the real corruptions within the agency and definitely staff that begins reading :) For all future writers, please leave people's family members out of the dirt.. that's too much and not deserved..stick to our inside muck..and to all those managers who are laughing at other manager..remember we are finally writing and giving details as we are told everyday to do...so don't laugh too soon or too loud as yet....

    Thumbs Up Myers! Someone had the guts to speak up. You have brougjt most of the corruption in this Agency to thr forefront. It,s too bad you had to make the "Truth in most senarios in your journal Fiction.# A lot of great workers has suffered and will continue not to move up in positions because of people like Laura, Kaufman, Site Managers, and certain Boro Chiefs. D.O.I., Inspector General, and EEO offices had not taken our complaints serious enough! Not to mention the flunkies inform your job you made a complaint against them. There is no CONFIDENTIALITY at all. "This agency is helpful to save the City money but the pits of all jobs for the workers, "Unless you are willing to invest in a few pairs of KNEE PADS" Myers I really hope this Journal has several more parts coming to print. I am a witness to some of the mental abuse and harrassment you had to endure. You left out a lot of "FICTION/TRUTH" LMAO! I can't wait for Parts II III IV V BE CAREFUL!

    There is a fine line between a genius and a lunatic. Mr. Myers

    There is a fine line between a genius and a lunatic. Mr. Myers for the most part of this book spoke the truth about this government agency, even though it was not the right way to go about it. It has been documented over and over again on all the behaviors mentioned in the book, but yet management constantly turn their heads ..including the Inspector Generals Office. The Manhattan site manager character in which he documented has no moral standards and her husband has got to be the most idiotic and pathetic man to tolerate her obnoxious behavior. It's sickening to see their out right love affair and the abuse of city time in which they use to meet at hotels. It's sad to say that she actually has a child and he has to call her mother. It's not the first time her name has surface surrounding her well given name given by Mr. Myers in his book. Promotion was definitely obtained by those deeds mentioned because it's not her intelligence or good looks. The Haitian stud character is nothing but garbage, pure garbage. You only have to have a pulse for him to get with you. It's a disgrace to watch these peoples behavior and how they abuse the city time and money with their filthiness.. a complete whore house.Great job Myers and the idiots agree because they are buying it.. sold out.
