24 July 2009 | Rack & Roll Scandal | 6 Comments

The News & Messenger breaks the story about David Ruttenberg’s appeal to the 4th Circuit in the Rack n’ Roll scandal telling Ruttenberg that they wouldn’t print it unless they released the information to him first, instead of here.  Oh, well.  At least they published a nice photo of a police officer pointing a gun […]

Manassas Park has two openings on the School Board that start June 30th, and guess who shows up to apply for the position?  Maybe someone with a long history of working with the school system?  Perhaps someone with extensive management experience?  This is the Park we’re talking about here, so of course the story isn’t […]

InsideNova is reporting this weekend that a U.S. District Court ruled against Dave Ruttenberg in his lawsuit against Manassas Park for the way he was abused by local law enforcement and the city government.

Manassas Park Admits To Witheld Evidence?

13 February 2008 | Rack & Roll Scandal | 29 Comments

Does Manassas Park have evidence that a crime has been committed, and refuse to turn this evidence over to law enforcement because it would implicate city officials in a blackmail scheme? You be the judge. Here’s city attorney Dean Crowhurst acknowledging they have this evidence:


Manassas Park city officials admit […]

The Blackmail Of Kevin Brendel

12 February 2008 | Rack & Roll Scandal, Manassas Park, Crime | 59 Comments

Manassas Park Planning Commissioner and former Vice-Mayor Kevin Brendel had an interesting hobby. He liked to take lewd pictures of young girls — some of whom are reported to be a little less than the legal age — when he was moonlighting as a DJ at Rack n’ Roll. When the City found […]

Kiddie Porn Is OK When Government Does It

6 February 2008 | Rack & Roll Scandal, Crime | 19 Comments

While the MJM reports on a man pleading guilty to viewing child pornography, it continues to ignore that the City of Manassas Park is still sitting on top of evidence that former Vice-Mayor and current Planning Commission member Kevin Brendel actually produced child pornography.  Although Brendel’s intent wasn’t to commercially distribute the pictures he staged, […]

I’ve gotten word tonight that the Supreme Court of Virgina has ruled against the City of Manassas Park today and denied a writ of certiorari seeking to overturn a decision favoring Dave Ruttenberg, owner of Rack n’ Roll billiards.  As soon as the decision is released, I’ll have more on this.
Ruttenberg was not even allowed […]

The Park Revokes Rack n’ Roll’s CUP

21 November 2007 | Rack & Roll Scandal | 26 Comments

The Manassas Park Governing Board has predictably revoked the Conditional Use Permit of Rack n’ Roll after ignoring extensive evidence of improper behavior by the city.  When city officials are complicit in perjury, fabrication of evidence, harassment and abuse of a local business owner who got in the way of their grand designs, it is […]

The Other Railroad In The Park

On June 2nd, 2004 about 90 officers with the Joint Narcotics Task Force raided The Rack & Roll Billiard Club in ski masks and with guns drawn under the guise of an ABC investigation, and left about an hour later with only two warm bottles of beer to show for their efforts.

The week there was a public hearing held by the Manassas Park Governing Board regarding the Conditional Use Permit allowed for Rack n’ Roll Billards, and the Potomac News has an article about this in today’s edition.  While Kipp Hanley does a pretty good job providing an overview of what happened, there’s a lot more […]

Let’s Go To The Video Tape (#6)

8 October 2007 | Rack & Roll Scandal | 37 Comments

Dave Ruttenberg has made an arrangement with his landlord to re-open Rack n’ Roll until it can be sold, and it’s driving the Manassas Park Police Department completely nuts. Not only did they make an attempt to do a sting two weeks ago in their typical Keystone Cops fashion, but just days ago, they […]

MJM Earns It’s Moniker, Again

3 October 2007 | Rack & Roll Scandal | Comments Off

The Manassas Urinal-Massager is really living down to it’s name in today’s edition. Earlier this year, Judge Leroy Millette ruled against the City of Manassas Park saying that David Ruttenberg has a property interest in the Conditional Use Permit and that the City Council could not arbitrarily revoke it without cause. Now that […]

Schizophrenia As A Strategy

3 October 2007 | Rack & Roll Scandal | 3 Comments

When you’re in litigation, you really have to pick one set of facts to work with.  Radley Balko pointed out the other day that Manassas Park is trying to use two contradictory sets of “facts”, in two separate legal efforts, but still maintaining that people should trust that they’re telling the truth.  Well, which “truth” […]

It’s all over for the Rack n’ Roll Billiard Club. After suffering years of abuse from city officials who did everything they could to destroy his business, Dave Ruttenberg finally had to close Rack n’ Roll and has a mountain of unpaid debts.

Earlier this month, the Manassas Park Planning Commission derailed the attempted railroad of Rack n’ Roll Billiards Club owner Dave Ruttenberg after rejecting calls by City Attorney Dean Crowhurst and Vice-Mayor Brian Polk to quickly vote to revoke the Conditional Use Permit of the business without having any time to review the information presented by […]

A Swing And A Miss

13 September 2007 | Rack & Roll Scandal | 9 Comments

The Manassas Journal-Messenger took a stab at reporting what happened at Tuesday’s meeting of the Manassas park Planning Commission, and pretty much missed the story and a lot of the facts. The article looks like it was written after extensively interviewing Manassas Park City Attorney Dean Crowhurst, and getting only a soundbite or two […]
