UNITED STATES OF AMERICA MERIT SYSTEMS PROTECTION BOARD NEW YORK FIELD OFFICE
RANDY L. DIXON, Appellant, v. DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS, Agency.
DOCKET NUMBER NY-0752-11-0158-I-1 DATE: December 1, 2011
Randy L. Dixon, Hartford, Connecticut, pro se. Joy C. Vilardi-Rizzuto, Esq., San Juan, Puerto Rico, for the agency. BEFORE
JoAnn M. Ruggiero Administrative Judge
INITIAL DECISION INTRODUCTION
By timely appeal, Mr. Dixon, a disabled veteran, challenged the agency’s decision to remove him from the position of Police Officer, GS-6, Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, San Juan, Puerto Rico. See Initial Appeal File (IAF), Tab 1.1 The Board has jurisdiction over the appeal. See 5 U.S.C. §§ 7511(a)(1)(A), 7512(1), 7513(d), and 7701(a).
1 The effective date of the appellant’s removal was January 28, 2011. See IAF, Tab 7, Subtabs 1 and 3. The appellant stated, however, that he did not learn of the agency’s decision until March 9, 2011 when he checked his personnel file on line. Id., Tab 1. He filed his appeal on March 16, 2011. Id. The agency acknowledged that it did not

Because the appellant withdrew his request for a hearing, I have based my decision on the parties’ written submissions. See IAF, Tabs 23, 24, and 25. For the reasons explained below, the agency’s action is AFFIRMED. ANALYSIS AND FINDINGS Adverse action
In an adverse action, the agency has the burden of proving its charges by a preponderance of the evidence2. See Burroughs v. Department of the Army, 918 F.2d 170, 172 (Fed. Cir. 1990). The agency must also show that there is a nexus between the proven misconduct and the efficiency of the service. See 5 U.S.C. § 7513(a). Further, the agency must show that the penalty imposed is reasonable. See Gonzalez v. Department of Homeland Security, 114 M.S.P.R. 318, 325 (2010); Douglas v. Veterans Administration, 5 M.S.P.R. 280, 307-08 (1981). Background
During the time the appellant was employed by the agency, he and his wife resided in Morovis, Puerto Rico. In late 2010, they were embroiled in a conflict with some of her relatives. The conflict had to do with the house in which the appellant and his wife lived; the conflict involved land and water rights. The conflict deepened and the appellant maintains that he feared for his safety and the safety of his family. He and his wife brought the matter to the attention of numerous federal agencies and agencies operated by the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. He and his wife also sought assistance from the local police, but
forward a copy of the decision to the appellant’s correct address. Id., Tab 7. Because he filed his appeal a week after he learned of the agency’s decision, I deemed the appeal to be timely filed. See 5 C.F.R. § 1201.22(b). 2 ―Preponderance of the evidence‖ is defined as the degree of relevant evidence that a reasonable person, considering the record as a whole, would accept as sufficient to find that a contested fact is more likely to be true than untrue. See 5 C.F.R. § 1201.56(c)(2).

believed that neither the local police nor the other authorities were taking appropriate action to protect them. The appellant came to the conclusion that he could not leave his family alone. See IAF, Tabs 1, 7, 18, and 19. The record indicates that on October 19, 2010, the appellant called Silvia Valentin, Assistant Chief of the Police Service at the Medical Center, and informed Ms. Valentin about the situation with which he was faced. He told her that his family had been threatened and he could not report to work that night given his condition. He was granted sick leave for October 19, 2010 and for a short time thereafter. Id., Tab 1; Tab 7, Subtabs 5 and 8. According to Ms. Valentin, she and the appellant had a telephone conversation on October 25, 2010 during which he stated that: he contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI); he filed a complaint with the Puerto Rico Department of Natural Resources; he obtained restraining orders against several individuals; and he could not ―abandon‖ his family. According to Ms. Valentin, she told him that the sick leave could not be continued and he should discuss his situation with Pedro Rosado, Chief of the Police Service. The record indicates that the appellant was granted annual leave through November 3, 2010. Id., Tab 7, Subtabs 5 and 8. According to Ms. Valentin, she had more telephone conversations with the appellant and he stated that: he had to attend certain court proceedings; there was corruption in the municipal government, the Police Department, and the Department of Natural Resources; and he should be given administrative leave rather than annual leave. She stated that when she asked him when he would be able to return to work, he stated that his family came first and his family was not safe unless he was present. He was given annual leave through November 23, 2010. Id.
As the story unfolds, the appellant called Ms. Valentin on November 24, 2010. She stated that he told her that he had to stand by his family even if it would cost him his job. She stated that she told him that he used up his annual
4
leave; he was to report to work at 1 p.m. that day; he stated that he was not leaving his family; she told him that he would be ―posted‖ AWOL; he stated he knew this was coming; she tried unsuccessfully to convince him to come back to work; and she then informed him that because his annual physical examination had ―expired,‖ he would have to turn in his badge, police credentials, and firearms locker key. She stated that at 12 noon, he and his wife came to her office and he turned in those items. She stated that he again said there was corruption in the local government; he stated that his constitutional rights were violated; he stated that he knew he might lose his job; he showed her two restraining orders that he and his wife obtained against two men; he stated that those men then filed a case against him and his wife; she (Ms. Valentin) warned him that refusing to return to work could result in the loss of his job; and he stated that is why there are civil courts. See IAF, Tab 7, Subtab 8. Later in the afternoon of November 24, 2010, the appellant sent an e-mail message to his immediate supervisor, Rafael Lopez. The appellant described the meeting with Ms. Valentine and stated: ―I will now be AWOL each day until I am fired. – So predictable when the victim is the one they punish in government service. Meaning its (sic) far easier to just fire an officer, than investigate their (sic) claim of public corruption, criminal abuses, etc.‖ Id., Tab 34 at 16. In an e-mail message that he sent the appellant that afternoon, Mr. Lopez stated in part: ―I suggest that you return to work, get your physical and get re-qualified.‖ Mr. Lopez also suggested that the appellant speak with the superintendent of the police in San Juan and file a complaint against the Morovis precinct. Id. The appellant filed e-mail messages with numerous individuals and described his situation. In a December 8, 2010 e-mail to an individual named Alberto Medina, the appellant stated in part:
5
Even though I work for the federal government as a police officer, the federal government’s official party line of what my family and I have been suffering is ―personal problem‖? See IAF, Tab 34 at 35. In that same e-mail, the appellant stated: ―Though the government has not fired me yet I refuse to return to my official duty as my family can not (sic) depend on the PRPD to help them.‖ Id. The appellant’s removal On December 16, 2010, Mr. Rosado (the chief of the Police Service at the Medical Center) proposed that the appellant be removed from the agency. The proposal was based on two charges: (1) absence without leave (AWOL) and (2) failure to follow leave requesting procedures. See IAF, Tab 7, Subtab 4. In the specification under the first charge, Mr. Rosado alleged that the appellant did not report for duty since November 24, 2010 and was not authorized to be absent. In the specification under the second charge, Mr. Rosado alleged that since November 24, 2010, the appellant did not call his supervisor to seek leave. Id. Mr. Rosado included information regarding a reply to the proposal. Mr. Rosado stated that the appellant would have fourteen calendar days from receipt of the notice of proposed removal to reply; he could reply orally and/or in writing; and he could submit affidavits in support of his reply. Mr. Rosado also stated that the appellant could be represented by an attorney or other representative. Id. On December 21, 2010, the notice of proposed removal was hand delivered to the appellant at his home in Morovis by a co-worker, Marcos Carmelo Marquez. Id., Subtab 8.
6
The agency maintains that the appellant did not reply orally or in writing. Id., Subtab 3. The appellant maintains that he responded. Id., Tab 1. However, he did not submit a copy of the purported response. On January 20, 2011, Wanda Mims, Director of the Medical Center, issued a decision regarding the proposed action. Ms. Mims sustained both charges and determined that the appellant should be removed from the agency. See IAF, Tab 7, Subtab 3. The appellant’s removal became effective January 28, 2011. Id., Subtabs 1 and 3. He did not become aware of the decision until March 9, 2011. The agency stated that because of an error, a copy of the decision was not sent to his correct address. Id., Tabs 1 and 7. As noted above, the appellant filed his appeal on March 16, 2011. Id., Tab 1. I found it to be timely because he filed it a week after he learned of the decision. In an e-mail message dated March 29, 2011, the appellant stated that he and his family left Puerto Rico because on March 22, 2011, he was ambushed by two men who used a machete in an attempt to take his life. See IAF, Tab 4. The agency proved the charges. It is undisputed that the appellant did not return to work after his meeting with Ms. Valentin on November 24, 2010 even though she told him that refusing to return to work could result in the loss of his job. He was unable to tell her when he would report for duty. He believed that his employing agency should have allowed him to remain absent for as long as he deemed necessary. He believed that his employing agency should have investigated his claim of corruption in the local government and the agencies with which he was dealing. He was mistaken. His employing agency had no role in the matter involving his house or the issues relating to the conflict in which he was engaged.
7
As noted above, Mr. Lopez, the appellant’s supervisor, advised the appellant in a November 24, 2010 e-mail message to return to work. Mr. Lopez also provided advice to the appellant in connection with the appellant’s claim that the police in Morovis were not responsive to his needs. Mr. Lopez suggested that the appellant speak with the police superintendent in San Juan and file a complaint against the Morovis precinct. The appellant did not follow Mr. Lopez’s advice. On December 8, 2010, the appellant stated that he refused to return to work. See IAF, Tab 34 at 35. On his appeal form, the appellant stated that following the November 24, 2010 meeting with Ms. Valentin, his earnings and leave statements indicated that he was on leave without pay. Id., Tab 1. However, he did not submit a copy of any of the earnings and leave statements. In any event, he had reason to know that a coding of leave without pay was a mistake. He stated plainly in his November 24, 2010 e-mail to Mr. Lopez that he (the appellant) would be AWOL each day until the agency removed him. The record does not support a finding that after the November 24, 2010 meeting, he made any request—oral or written—for any form of leave or an advance of leave. In view of the above, the charges of AWOL and failing to follow leave requesting procedures are SUSTAINED. The appellant’s claim of violation of due process The appellant maintains that because of the way in which the agency carried out the removal action, he was not accorded due process. See IAF, Tab 44.
The appellant was subject to the provisions of Subchapter II of 5 U.S.C. Chapter 75 and therefore had a constitutionally protected property interest in his employment. He was thus entitled to minimum due process in connection with the removal action. See Edwards v. United States Postal Service, 112 M.S.P.R. 196, 200-01 (2009); Stephen v. Department of the Air Force, 47 M.S.P.R. 672, 680 (1991). I disagree with his contention that he was denied due process.
8
On December 21, 2010, the appellant received Mr. Rosado’s December 16, 2010 notice of proposed removal. See IAF, Tab 7, Subtab 8. The notice of proposed removal set forth—with specificity—the two charges. The notice stated that the appellant had fourteen calendar days from receipt thereof to reply. The notice stated that the appellant was entitled to reply orally and/or in writing and could submit affidavits in support of his reply. The notice stated that the appellant could be represented by an attorney or other representative. The notice stated that the evidence on which the proposed removal was based would be available for his review in the Human Resources office of the Medical Center. The notice also included the name and telephone extension number of a Human Resources specialist who could provide further explanation regarding the proposed removal. See IAF, Tab 7, Subtab 4. The appellant acknowledged that he received the notice of proposed removal. Id., Tab 1. He stated that he made a response. Id., Tab 1. As noted above, he did not submit a copy of the purported response. The agency stated that it did not receive a response from the appellant. See IAF, Tab 7, Subtab 3. On January 20, 2011, Ms. Mims issued her decision to remove the appellant effective January 28, 2011. Id. Because the agency did not send a copy of the decision to the appellant’s correct address, he did not learn of the decision until he checked his personnel file on line in March 2011. Id., Tabs 1 and 7. In this appeal, however, he obtained a de novo review of the agency’s action. Based on the above, the appellant’s claim of a denial of due process is REJECTED. The appellant’s claim of retaliation for whistleblowing
In his closing statement, the appellant raised for the first time a claim of reprisal for whistleblowing. He alleged that as soon as he learned from the FBI that he had ―a dangerous public corruption case‖ on his hands, he made a report
9
to his employing agency’s Office of Inspector General (OIG). See IAF, Tab 44. He did not state exactly what he reported to the OIG or when specifically he made his report to the OIG.
To establish the affirmative defense of reprisal for whistleblowing activity, an appellant must prove by a preponderance of the evidence that he made a disclosure described under 5 U.S.C. § 2302(b)(8) and that the disclosure was a contributing factor in the personnel action taken against him. See Scott v. Department of Justice, 69 M.S.P.R. 211, 236 (1995), aff’d, 99 F.3d 1160 (Fed. Cir. 1996) (Table). If the appellant meets this burden, the burden shifts to the agency to demonstrate by clear and convincing evidence3 that it would have taken the same personnel action in the absence of the appellant’s disclosure. Id. at 237. Protected whistleblowing occurs when one makes a disclosure that he reasonably believes evidences a violation of law, rule, or regulation; gross mismanagement; a gross waste of funds; an abuse of authority; or a substantial and specific danger to public health or safety. See 5 U.S.C. § 2302(b)(8); 5 C.F.R. § 1209.4(b); Baldwin v. Department of Veterans Affairs, 113 M.S.P.R. 469, 475 (2010).
In the instant case, the appellant did not show that he made a disclosure as described in 5 U.S.C. § 2302(b)(8). Even if he made such a disclosure, the point remains that he did not show that it was a contributing factor in the agency’s decision to remove him from his position. He did not show—or even allege—that any official involved in the removal action knew that he had made a report to the OIG. Moreover, he did not show—or even allege—temporal proximity between his making the report to the OIG and management’s taking the removal action. There is no indication that the removal action occurred within a period of time
3 ―Clear and convincing evidence‖ is defined as that measure or degree of proof that produces in the mind of the trier of fact a firm belief as to the allegations sought to be established. It is a higher standard than preponderance of the evidence. See 5 C.F.R. § 1209.4(d).
10
such that a reasonable person could conclude that the appellant’s report to the OIG was a contributing factor in the removal action. Based on the above, the appellant’s claim of reprisal for whistleblowing is REJECTED. Efficiency of the service I find that there is a nexus between the sustained misconduct and the efficiency of the service. The Board has held that an employee’s absence for which no foreseeable end is in sight is a burden that no employer can efficiently endure. See Mason v. United States Postal Service, 9 M.S.P.R. 191, 193 (1981). Reasonableness of the penalty Where, as here, each of the charges has been sustained, the Board reviews the agency’s penalty only to determine if the agency considered all the relevant factors and exercised managerial discretion within tolerable limits of reasonableness. See Woebcke v. Department of Homeland Security, 114 M.S.P.R. 100, 104 (2010). In determining whether the penalty is reasonable, the Board gives due deference to the agency’s discretion in exercising its managerial function of maintaining employee discipline and efficiency. Id. The Board’s function is not to decide what penalty it would have imposed, but rather to ensure that management judgment was properly exercised and that the penalty does not exceed the maximum limits of reasonableness. Therefore, the Board will modify a penalty only when the Board finds that the agency did not weigh the relevant factors or that the penalty clearly exceeded the bounds of reasonableness. Id. If, however, the deciding official did not appropriately consider the relevant factors, the Board need not defer to her penalty determination. Id.
In the instant case, I find that Ms. Mims did not perform an adequate Douglas factor analysis. She neither knew how much federal civilian service the
11
appellant had nor did she appropriately weigh his performance. Moreover, she did not weigh sufficiently the reason he was absent. See IAF, Tab 7, Subtabs 2 and 3. Therefore, I have not deferred to her penalty determination. At the time of his removal, the appellant was employed by the agency for a little more than two years; the agency had not previously taken disciplinary action against him; and his performance was rated fully successful. He had prior service as a Park Ranger with the Army Corps of Engineers in California. From May 1990 through September 1994, he held five temporary positions with the Army Corps of Engineers. From November 1994 to May 2001, he held a permanent position with the Army Corps of Engineers. His total federal civilian service was a little less than eleven years. Id., Tab 7, Subtabs 1 and 2; Tabs 41 and 43. The absence which formed the basis of the removal action was attributable to issues relating to his house in Morovis and his belief that his family was not safe without him. As noted above, he initially took sick leave in late October 2010 and was then given annual leave through November 23, 2010. When his annual leave was exhausted, he still would not return to work despite being warned that refusal to return could lead to the loss of his job. He remained AWOL from the time of the November 24, 2010 meeting with Ms. Valentin through December 16, 2010 when Mr. Rosado proposed his removal. Id., Tab 7. AWOL is a serious offense. See McCauley v. Department of the Interior, 116 M.S.P.R. 484, 491 (2011); Foreman v. United States Postal Service, 89 M.S.P.R. 328, 334 (2001). I have considered the appellant’s statements that he feared for the safety of his family and felt that the local police would not adequately protect his family. However, he did not take the advice of his supervisor, Mr. Lopez, to speak with the police superintendent in San Juan and file a complaint against the Morovis precinct. Moreover, the appellant could not even estimate when he would return to work.
12
It appears that there is virtually no rehabilitative potential. The appellant did not seem to recognize—and still does not seem to recognize—that the agency could not allow him to remain off duty indefinitely. Having reviewed the record numerous times, I find that the penalty of removal—although harsh—is within the tolerable limits of reasonableness. DECISION The agency’s action is AFFIRMED.

I never carried any fire arms off duty (nor do I own any fire arms) as the VA, FBI & DOJ well knows but that did not seem to prevent the Assistant Chief of Police from writing the willfully perjurer'ed VA Memo that MSPB totally ignored? I discovered the Memo hidden in the agency's response during the MSPB case. It proves a clear Federal Nexus between the murderous gang and my own Assistant Chief of Police way back in November 30, 2010! The agency knew it was lies & never responded to my demand for an agency response nor did the MSPB address this important issue. Why? http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1655993730300&set=a.1085872277620.2013129.1550796667&type=3&theater

Randy L. Dixon Rivera's comment, December 3, 2011 10:16 AM
You who facelessly go by the name of "JoAnn M. Ruggiero Administrative Judge",


Stated that you understood my wife and I went every where we could seeking help, then you contradictory stated I did not follow the advice of my supervisor Lt. Lopez? Do you logically believe as the documented and persecuted victims of State Police Corruption the actual Superintendent of the State Police of Puerto Rico was going to just give me an appointment like we were old friends? I laugh at this ignorant and arrogant assumption that I would have the power to meet and see whom ever I wish in Puerto Rico's State Police hierarchy when my own Federal leaders were cowering over our deadly situation? Why did not my own Chief of the Police pick up his phone and just call the superintendent to find out why one of his Federal Police Officers was not getting the protection as demanded by criminal statutes and our US Constitution? The failure was not mine; as you well know I did use due diligence.


On the question of how long it would take for me to return to duty? WHAT? Are you a complete moron? How many times must I point out my family and I were the victims of on going federal and state crimes even while I was a criminal witness for the state. Secondly the criminal gang WAS NOT MY FAMILY not True relative they were murderous criminals and I am insulted you called them my relatives! It was not one man or two it was a gang of many.


The Assistant Chief of Police willfully set me up and collaborated with known criminals and even sent people out to inform the corrupt State Police in Morovis that I was finally unarmed and totally unprotected by the Veterans Affairs; way before I knew it myself. The State Police then contacted the murderous gang and informed them. I was the last person to know I was no longer a Federal Officer. Then the gang sabotaged my water system and failed to murder me in the ambush all because my corrupt Assistant Chief of Police gave them her full cooperation (VA Memo November 30, 2011) but I still don't know if it was a favor or bribe? WHY did you not address the VA Memo judge? You know it discredits the Assistant Chief of Police and the entire AWOL case. By your deliberate ignoring of this single most import issue provides an insight to both your goals and MSPB corruption.


I am not an Attorney with the power to demand anything and everything from the Justice System, I am a simple "no-body" a "Juan de Peblo in Puerto Rico" you just don't get appointments with high ranking political and government leaders in Puerto Rico.


My due diligence did get me several meeting with Puerto Rico's State Police Internal Affairs Division who informed me they were totally out gunned and under funded but took our State Police Corruption evidence anyway on the remote chance there would be an actual investigation into Morovis Municipality and its Tribunal but the Police are not the Municipality's, the so called local Police you mentioned are in fact corrupt State Police. The dire situation is much more deadly than you know but the FBI and DOJ well knew this fact. If the State Police themselves were not going to protect or back me up; how do you expect us to make them do their jobs with out my own agencies intervention or demand? You can not let State Police subjugate a Federal Police Officer as was the case. If I had committed any police misconduct it was the duty of the FBI and VA to investigate but as the FBI and DOJ well knew it was the State Police who were committing the misconduct and corruption.


You act as if my abilities included to make both state and federal agencies do their jobs but as you well know I do not have that power as its victim. The VA OIG? Give me a break call up david.spilker@va.gov in DC or do I have to make all the e-mails public? The IG is not going to just give me evidence to submit to the public but my phone records will prove I contacted him and his would show who he contacted my Chief of Police; plus I have the emails. Once again I can't make him do his job especially if he is a coward and undeserving of his federal position. Once again this proves you have no operational knowledge what so ever of Federal Law Enforcement and do not have the right to judge our horrific situation, you are a fraud and a waste of American Taxpayers dollars.


The MSPB has dishonored itself and must have the blood of both Veterans & Federal Police Officers on its hands. You are a dangerous fool my dear judge as you have proven you absolutely have no concept or capacity what so ever of how our Criminal Justice System and Law Enforcement Agencies function; you are not qualified to judge me nor any Federal Police Officer or honorable US Veteran.

JoAnn M. Ruggiero Administrative Judge - you act as if I was the only person whos duty and ability is to make both state and federal agencies do their jobs but AS YOU WELL KNOW "I do not have that power" especially as its brutalized victim.

I can not make any state or federal agency do its job! Your words are of both that of a corrupt puppet and dangerous fool you should be removed of your unconstitutional duties as it would save many honorable American lives in the future.

A example of MSPB hypocrisy is the Cosme vs. VA case when compared to own my case.

You who facelessly go by the name of "JoAnn M. Ruggiero Administrative Judge", come and personally meet my family and I face to face; explain to my wife, children and myself how you used any honor or integrity in coming up with that hoax of a 8 month long MSPB ordeal, that should have been decided in the first 5 mins of your personal knowledge of human and civil rights violations; other wise my final statment to you stands as a record of my US Constitutional 1st Amendment Civil Rights in defiance to blatant internal US Government corruption!

Yo te quiero a ti para siempre, descansa bien, dulces sueños..mi amor
Randy L. Dixon Rivera's insight:
I went to see my wife yesterday in the hospital ... she is on her death bed .. for 7 months I had not seen my wife .. I was lied to and told she was "happy" and others were told she was "cured." Now the cancer has come back with a lethal vengeance and the doctors have already given up. I knew from the very start everyone was lying to my wife everyone but her own husband. There was nothing I could do as my wife was being manipulated, lied to and cheated. Vital resources i.e. money were siphoned off and wasted for the satisfaction of others. My concerns fell on deft ears to the state. Tell me why I should not feel sorrow and equally angry? Now my wife is on her death bed .. I tried to help her but she would not listen to me. She trusted her eldest daughter who bailed on her two months ago with the biological father back to Puerto Rico .. now its become a real shit show. These are FACTS like them or not.

The ONLY person who should have been entrusted with my wife's life is her own lawful husband. I curse the state for placing my wife's life in the hands of fools including her doctors .. ALL of THEM! None of them kept me in the loop since early November of 2016 when my wife was 1st diagnosed with a form of "terminal cancer" That's when it became more important than ever to keep me in the loop. But the liberal laws here in MA were my enemy along with ignorant selfish fools. I well knew ... all along "Doctors are not GODS" !! .. They are not better than any of us .. each of us are fully capable of learning just as much as any doctor today. I spent 4 sleepless months learning everything I could about my wife's cancer. As a talked to my wife's doctors yesterday it quickly became apparent I was talking to my lesser and less educated. No one is born a doctor, they read books, they listen to lectures and they practice their trade even before they are competent. Stop being blinded by meaningless titles, educate yourselves .. question them, doubt them .. if you're self educated enough on medicine etc., you'll soon figure out a vast majority of doctors are arrogant ignorant fools in which many have sold their souls to Big Pharma & $$$ not saving lives.

I just saw with my own eyes the result of deceptions, manipulations and lies .. it's a bit surreal .. how foolish people can be. My wife was foolish to trust anyone but her own husband ... the state and its power & money has brought nothing but tears, sorrow & greed.   

Prophetically I wrote this only days before I learned the whole truth.....   I have had all marital rights out bid and out competed by the deep pockets of the state and #SSI .. I ... | @scoopit http://sco.lt/5bKnwX ;

As with any fraud ..... follow the money .....      

Doctors arguing with me as I explained how they failed my wife. They said "that's all in the past" I said like your bills?     

COMPLICITY "the state of being involved with others in an illegal activity or wrongdoing." Waiting for that hammer to fall.     

I wouldn't be so angry if I hadn't been lied to for so long .. that's what lies do.     

My wife PASSED at 11:29 this morning .. I was NOT notified by "anybody" (including the hospital itself) until a few minutes ago by a niece.   09/14/2017       

Yo te quiero a ti para siempre, descansa bien, dulces sueños..mi amor

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Day 2:   Today I begin my 1st morning as a widower . . I'm still trying to grapple with what that means .. the false narrative fed to my wife's family these last 7 months despite my attempts to expose it means that not only will I never see my wife ever again in this lifetime but that I will never see many of her family again either. With what I've been put through since my wife's cancer diagnoses last Nov 2016 that's not entirely a bad thing because the one thing "My Culture" will not TOLERATE .... is treason and treason, manipulations and lies abounded right to the end. :(      

I don't think I'm going to be attending my own wife's wake because it will be filled to capacity by hypocrisy, greed and hate. :(        

I was abandoned for 7 months by many in my wife's family ..they were following a false narrative and keeping a lie alive even after it had been exposed .. Perhaps I should have a separate wake with those who now see the truth .. My wife is gone it matters not to her any longer. Wakes are for the living and treason should not be comforted for their lies.         
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Day3:  The masses worshiping my wife's empty husk got what they wanted her body, which was not my plans for my own wife's remains but someone else's .. I capitulated to their selfish whims one final and LAST TIME to be done with the hypocrisy once and for all. I should've never been under any pressure for that but people make their own plans without making them "WITH" the one person "STILL LIVING" and then blame that person for their own ignorance and childish stupidity. I woke up this morning defeated and totally exhausted. I am beginning my new life as the Widower and a bit frightened of my very uncertain future perhaps alone. What do you do when you outlive the only love of your life? I hadn't planned of outliving my loving wife .. :(    


I'm mostly sad for my wife not me .. despite her problems are over and mine have just begun .. I know she died lonely to a degree .. I tried to get everyone to wake up early but instead we were divided and separated by two cultures and two incompatible customs. My custom is truth .. no mater how terrible the truth is we should've faced it together as a family. It's not a regret or my remorse, it's a fact. Now everyone wants to see her cold lifeless husk on display but she is no longer here. This is why I'm so very very sad for her. :( It's too late .. for regrets. By divine intervention I did get to be with my wife one last time. That's how I know she's waiting for me because I was not able to see her that terrible morning, she came to me instead. I am at peace with that and her last final kiss on my lips telling me she loved me. Perhaps one day in our after life we can finally live as husband and wife and she can finally rest knowing her children are well without her.

Mommy Mimi ..the perpetual mother of all ..   :(    
The really tragic part is I found out on Wednesday (the day before my wife's death) my being left alone for 7 long months WAS NOT what my wife wanted .. she desperately wanted reconciliation two months ago as she was lonely & betrayed but she was being compelled and manipulated to continue the lies until it was too late. . The truth finally came out when I got to talk to my wife alone for the 1st time since she first got sick and especially after she was moved in with her Ex husband and daughters. I demanded the medical staff to let me talk to my wife without any interference from her daughters . I literally had the hospital staff tell them (more like force them) to give me time alone with my wife but I was still treated like some criminal as they had a nurse with me all times which only angers me they were mislead to believe I would ever harm a hair on my wife's head.. I have never laid a finger on my wife and MA the laws that deny a loving husband from being by his wife's side are DEAD wrong. Then they tried to accuse me of badgering her because they told me she was of sound mind so ask her on her death bed to sign a new proxy for her so I could make the last decisions if she should become incapacitated as is my natural right as her lawful husband. However that right was stolen from me by unfounded lies. Then they were telling me it was too Iate to do a new proxy was dated 2016 when circumstance were far different. All these people know how to do is lie! I internally cursed them the inept liars & cheats that they are. They were fooling no one, they had taken the side of liars with no evidence or legal basis. . It was a shit show .. I would love to sue the shit out of Mercy Hospital. It's going to be very hard to forgive everyone involved in that deception. Kids always believe they are smarter than their parents .. how wrong they truly are.

The laws must change!         
After my wife was diagnosed with "terminal cancer" she was not making rational decisions.. she married me for a damn good reason, the system stole that from me! BAD Massachusetts laws must change! They would not allow me to protect my lawful wife from greed & idiots!     

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Day4:  My wife wrote on her Twitter profile "yo soy victima de la corrupcion y nadie hace nada.nadie quiere ecucha lo que me susedio" which translates as .. "I am a victim of corruption and nobody is doing anything." And this is the hypocrisy I write about. https://twitter.com/IslamenosN My wife passed on without ever seeing any justice .. "any justice" what so ever.      

I told EVERYONE I could after my wife's diagnoses with "terminal cancer" last Nov 2016 .. NOW IS THE TIME TO SEE MIMI AND DO THINGS WITH HER! Why I will not be attending my wife's wake .. because it's too late now.         

I don't want to see other people cry at her funeral .. I saw my wife cry on her death bed. .. :(        

It really amazes me how many people forgot my wife was married and at some point they had to account with me.... with threats?          

My wife passed away at 11:29 am on 09/14/2017 . . she will never see the justice she cried for. The system is broken ..       

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Day6:     People are just so fucking stupid .. think they understand my relationship with my wife through bochinche ,.. but they knew nothing. That's why I don't want to go today .. too many fucking hypocrites will be there making themselves feel better in the wake of the destruction they caused balling over the dead body of my wife. Some will be taking their morbid selfies because having almost a year to see my wife alive was to difficult. I told everyone last November she had terminal cancer .. they scorned me for it mislead my wife into many bad decisions, ignored my rights as the husband who only wanted to protect my wife from the idiots. Everyone one knew what was best for my wife but her own husband .. I knew she didn't have a lot time left back in November ..why it's called terminal cancer, that means you don't survive it. gawd people are fucking selfish idiots. My wife spent the last months of her life betrayed, lonely and there was nothing I could do about it because of these fucked up MA laws. .             It just hurts so bad ..like nothing I've ever felt in my life.. she's gone...really gone. She so wanted to tell me .. less than a month before she died....                  https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10210363275268824&set=a.1085872277620.2013129.1550796667&type=3&theater

Massachusetts Environmental Police

On Sunday, September 24, 2017, at approximately 2:19 pm, an Environmental Police Officer was conducting recreational marine fisheries inspections on vessels returning to Taylor Point Marina in Bourne, Massachusetts. Upon approaching a vessel that had just hauled out, the Officer observed one of the four males on the vessel run up a hill towards the rail road tracks with a white bucket. The male then dumped a quantity of fish behind some bushes. The Officer approached the male with the bucket and observed six small Black Sea Bass on the ground. The Officer placed the male party in handcuffs and recovered the fish. He escorted the male party back to the vessel and the three other occupants. The Officer asked all four individuals if there were any more Black Sea Bass in the vessel. They all responded no. An Environmental Police Lieutenant arrived to assist and upon inspecting the vessel the Lieutenant located 17 more Black Sea Bass and 5 Scup hidden in the transom of the vessel. A closer inspection of all 23 Black Sea Bass and the 5 Scup found them all to be under the legal size limit. All four occupants of the vessel were taken into custody and transported to the Bourne State Police Barracks. The vessel, trailer, and vehicle were impounded and all fishing gear was seized as evidence. At the Barracks they were booked on the following charges: 1. Failure to display catch upon demand; 2. Possession of 23 Black Sea Bass during the closed season for Black Sea Bass; 3. Possession of 23 Black Sea Bass less than the legal size; 4. Possession of 5 Scup less than the legal size. Recreational Black Sea Bass season ended at midnight on August 29, 2017 and during the season Black Sea Bass must measure 15 inches to be legally possessed. Recreational Scup must measure 10 inches to be legally possessed and the possession limit is 30 fish per angler up to 150 per vessel. All four will be arraigned at Falmouth District Court on Monday morning. Due to the storage, handling, and size of the seized catch, it was deemed not viable for human consumption and was returned to the sea.

A Good Guy With A Gun Stopped The Sudanese Muslim Church Shooter in Tennessee , #MSM crickets.  | Criminal Justice in America | Scoop.it

Nashville Police have identified the suspect of a mass shooting at a church Sunday morning as 25-year-old Emanuel Kidega Samson   ..........    "A church usher, Caleb Engle, 22, confronted the gunman and was "pistol whipped," Aaron said. "There was a significant struggle between the two," he said, adding: "During the struggle, the gunman shot himself, probably not intentionally, in the left pectoral muscle." Nashville Police Chief Steve Anderson said of Engle on Sunday afternoon: "He's the hero — he's the person who stopped this madness." Engle, a licensed gun owner, went to his vehicle, retrieved his own firearm, returned to the church and "made sure that the gunman didn't make any more movements until the police department arrived," Anderson said. In a statement, Engle said he didn't want to be called a hero."    http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/suspect-charged-with-murder-in-mass-shooting-at-church/ar-AAsplSH?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartanntp

"Terminal Cancer" should've made US a stronger family .. 12/27/2016

"Terminal Cancer" should've made US a stronger family .. not tear US apart and divide our resources ... I can't help but believe if my wife would still be ALIVE today without the manipulation, lies controlling her life & death decisions. Best I've been able to figure out even her doctors were manipulating my wife with me out of the way. Now she is dead, less than a year later. I never got to talk to my WIFE alone after she was first diagnosed with Terminal Cancer in Nov 2016 without someone interrupting or commenting to her often in opposition to my over half of a century of wisdom. The day before my wife died on her death bed was the first time I was able to talk to her with out a step child interrupting us or listening to our conversation. BAD Massachusetts LAWS MUST be changed! I had responsibility and duty to protect my LAWFUL WIFE and they took that away from me by deception, manipulations and lies. Hear me Massachusetts my wife married me for a damn good reason because she knew I could protect her from BAD people. I will never forgive ANYONE involved in taking that away from us.
Randy L. Dixon Rivera's insight:
I published this for a damn good reason .. up until my wife was lied to and manipulated to move into a rent house with her EX husband and her eldest two daughters, my wife and I were working together on her recent "Terminal Cancer" diagnoses. You see this blows away the whole "estranged husband" narrative fed to everyone including my wife's doctors. I wasn't "estranged" until my wife was lied to and manipulated after two key factors for criminal fraud. One she was diagnosed with "Terminal Cancer" and two my wife began receiving #SSI. As usual in fraud case you only need follow the money. My wife was cheated out of her last months on the earth with her lawful husband because of Massachusetts's BAD LAWS and a heinous criminal conspiracy. I too have been injured irreparable. Now the question begs who's at fault? The step daughters? Mercy hospital or Massachusetts BAD LAWS or just perhaps all of the above. Follow the money ..


  RIP my love .. Iris Noemi Acevedo Maldonado ... Born on 01/15/1964 Arecibo, Puerto Rico, USA - Died in Springfield, Massachusetts on 09/14/2017 .. until we're joined again my love.. :(

For those of you who fall into that last category of never having met face to face, you're no less a loving friend whom I would gladly hug in person. For the record they used to call those types of human relationships i.e. friendships being "Pen Pals". That's something I had been doing long before the internet and its social media craze even ever existed! I had Pen Pals all over the World! I'm still trying to find a few of them 40 years later. So for my dedicated loving "Pen Pals", don't ever discount yourselves as being my loving and good friends. At the very least it's a damn good start for any lasting friendship we forge together. I want to thank all of you from my heart for your love, support and that shoulder to cry on in my time of great sorrow & emotional need and to thank my good friends and family who remained by myside .. I am to each one of you a lost Brother, Uncle, Father or even Grandfather to some. I am flesh and blood and I want to say .. I Love All Of You .. never forget that. - Your _______ (Randy). You fill in the blank.

There's a price to pay for safety. In the city of Flint - one of the most violent cities in America - it's $11.25 an hour.
