New York City DOE Violates Teacher's Constitutional Rights
Educator Fights Back ^ | 3/12/14 | Francesco Portelos

On Tuesday March 4, 2014, I received a voicemail from Detective William Connor of the “84 Squad.” I found out later that “84 Squad” meant “Detective Unit of the 84th Precinct” in Brooklyn. I called back not thinking too much of it and he tells me that there was a complaint made against me by Chief Information Security Officer Desmond White involving alleged hacking of the NYC payroll system. It had something to do with my satirical post from February How to “Hack” the DOE Payroll Portal and Give Yourself a Raise. Apparently some people can’t take a joke. I laughed and told the detective I did no such thing.

I believe the DOE lawyers put Desmond White up to this as I have been communicating with him since Spring 2012 and didn’t think he would do this on his own. I mean I hope the Chief Security Officer really didn’t believe I hacked the payroll system and gave myself a raise with the password “KittensRcute.”

This teacher, Francisco Portelos, blew the whistle on his principal over 2 years ago for misappropriating funds meant for educating children but wound up in her pocket. Since then the NYCDOE has waged war on him, while nothing has happened to his principal.

He wrote a satirical, tongue in cheek blog post on how to hack the NYCDOE payroll system and was thrown in jail for 33 hours.

Mind you I am not protecting public school teachers, but this case seems egregious.
