Buatti Coverup: Three Years Later
Three years ago at this time, Imigrations and Customs Enforcement was closing in on Timberlane teacher Scott Buatti. Mr. Buatti would soon be charged with ten counts of possession of child pornography.
- February 25, 2008, Scott Buatti admits to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers that he subscribed to child pornography sites and had downloaded at least eight videos of little girls
- March 18, 2008, ICE meets with Superintendent La Salle and Assistant Superintendent Feneberg
- March 20, 2008, the School Board holds a nonpublic session and seals the minutes for 99 years
- April 13, 2009, Superintendent La Salle denies knowledge of the charges
- April 16, 2009, Superintendent La Salle claims denial was mischaracterized
Shortly thereafter, Buatti was suspended and later fired. We was indicted. Yet the minutes remain sealed. Who is the school board protecting? Superintendent La Salle? Other teachers? It’s members?
One of the participants in the infamous meeting is Rob Collins. He allowed Scott Buatti to continue to prowl Timberlane locker rooms for fourteen months and voted to seal the minutes for 99 years. Rob is running for re-election this year. He is unopposed. You cannot vote against him, but you don’t have to vote for him.
