An Open Letter to The Lions Club INternational:


Ladies and Gentlemen of The Lions Club (all sub-sections implied):

As you are certainly aware, one of your prominent members and local-level officers, Gary Britton, of Chester, NH, is, by any interpretation of the terms, a “habitual” and proven “sex offender against children” of the community at-large. Our legal system has dealt with Mr. Britton’s prior offences and current charges of additional offences (with contest to probable caused to charges waived in criminal court).

It is certainly a grave concern that Mr. Britton, in direct representation of The Lions Club, placed himself in close and active proximity to unsupervised children in large numbers, year after year at the annual “Chester-Day Fair” (or known by other titles). His role as a vendor in “The Purple People Feeder,” put him in direct proximity to vast numbers of unsupervised children of all ages.

The fact that The Lions Club allowed this, in its name, is deeply disturbing in that it is commonly known and publicized that Mr. Britton was a convicted sex-offender against children. It certainly seems reasonable that The Lions Club ought to review practices and member attitude toward endangering the public from this moment-forward.

NOTE: Since writing and distributing this, even more charges and past convictions have emaerged:

1) Britton was arrested and convicted as a dangerous stalker.
2) He was a felon in posession of a firearm.
3) He failed twice to re-register as a sex-offender.

CROSS-TALK within the Lions Club

You'll notice, in this panic state fromLions, they refuse to address the hazard they imposed upon the town'schildren by placing a well-know sex-offender against children under 13. They will not take any responsibility for it.
Below, is a lot of reading. but if you DO read it, you'll see an organizational culture with its heals dug into the groud of "zero responsibility."

_________________________________________________________

From the Lions Club to me:

Mr. Gary Britton is no longer associated with the Chester Lions CLub and Lions CLubs International.

Upon learning of his situation, the Chester Lions CLub held a hearing at a special meeting and voted to immediately drop him from said membership.

LCI Legal has been made aware of these actions.

Ed Lecius
_________________________________________________________________________

Mr. Brown:

I am confused as to what you are attempting to imply with your suggestion that you fail to see the urgency from the LCI.

This is a local issue and the Chester Lions Club followed the LCI policy to the letter. They acted swiftly and they and local authorities are unaware of any mis-deeds by this individual while he was a member of the Chester Lions at any of their functions and programs.

Other than his being a former Chester Lion, the Lions as you and others were as surprised and disappointed as you were when they learned of his situation and took immediate action -- even before his court arraignment. I am at a loss as to what pertinent information you are referring to.

If you have any information to the contrary I would suggest you contact Chester Police immediately.

I am also curious as to why you have zeroed in on the Lions Club. Perhaps you were unaware that this person was a contractor employed by the town of Chester.

You have e-mailed a number of people outside of New Hampshire, i.e. the New England Lions Council. The NELC has nothing to do with any individual Lions, clubs of districts.

If you wish to discuss this matter further, please call me tomorrow at work 603-594-3544.

TO" WMUR TV NEWS from Rob Brown

My concern is multi-fasceted.

1) That he had such access to tons of kids in the capacity of/as a Lion
2) That the Lion's dismissed this in seemingly secrecy
3) That they have made NO efforts to communicate with the public as to his ample access to the town's children IN THE CAPACITY OF the Lions member and President.
4) That the remaining lions are circling the wagons and dis-owning any accountablity.
5) That they are dismissing it so readily, yet they found it neccesary to vote him out.
6) That my inquiries are met with walls.
7) That many on Lion's positions of authority are claiming to not even KNOW the area President even though they all appear in the same Lion's directory.
8) That the New England President washed his hands of the entire issue, turning it over to the area people (aka M44)...the same people who rushed him out of the membershiip AND claim to not know him.
9) That they will not speak of the nature of his access to the LIONS CLUB SUMMER CAMPS in the area and they speak of no concern.
10) That they all attended many parties at Britton's house, complete with caterers, tent services and bands...brought their children along and NO ONE called him on being a convicted sex offender and ingnored his proximity to children.
11) That no one will speak of his LONG-STANDING attendance of the "Purple People Feedder" at the Chester Day Fairs, with ample un-supervised children (both day and night).
12) That the town Board of Selectmen claim to have cleared him of any possible danger from sitting behind their conference table. They never even spoke to Lion's upper leadership (prrof: Lions uppers claim to not know anything of this.)
13) That Britton broke the law (in the present tence) and has a history of skirting justice by not registering TWICE as to his wearabouts.
14) That current dangers DO IN FACT exist given that he had CURRENT-DAY ownership of ample child porn AND a firearm (as a felon in posession).

This story iis ripe for discovering tons of meat. No...its not an AP Press Pack that most media is use to, but niether was the Catholic Church scandal in Mass. A tiny bit of investigation will indicate a complete lack of concern among town leadership and the Lions. They are all seeking their own self-serving positions of protection and deniability, rather than take a simple look.

For goodness-sake, it was common knowledge he was a habitual offender when the LIONS and the Board allowed him to be in a positon at the Fair, hazardous to children.

Ed

The nature of my concern is very simple: LCI has made NO statement to the public concerning the scope of hazzards and Britton's historic and ample presence at the Chester Fair. Futher, that uppers, within LCI and withing M44 claim to NOT EVEN KNOW HIM...yet the New England President wants this handled withing M44????

If this was not such a bad situation for an organization (that allowed ample access to children both day and night) WHY DID YOU SO QUICKLY vote him out? WHY? Because this IS serious.

Re Lions Club taking heat from me: The ONLY reason you are "being zeroed-in upon" is that LCI happens to have rather closed and significant proximity to Mr Britton. He worked in and ran and stored your famous, child-endeared, "Purple People Feeder." THAT is why I'm "zeroing-in on LCI." If you see another habitual sex-offender whom enjoys ample access to children in the name of the club they serve, then I'll zero-in on THEM.

I have not see such scurrying for the holes since the Mass Catholic Church had the lights switched-on.

Your reaction is duly noted, and duly distributed.

You and the organization lack the character to speak-up and be transparent

_______________________________________________________

Ed,

I'm not seeing a heck of a lot of urgency or desire to address the public in any manner to discuss the scope of Britton's exposure via LCI capacity and activities. Thus, I'm going to ask that LCI afford and cooperate with a review panel of discovery so the the public can hear the pertenant information in a transparent form and forum.

I'm going to request that a number of roles and key-positions be represented at said review.

I hope LCI will cooperate with this plan as the town's people are in the dark.

Hold a public hearing, and it will all be back to normal.

_____________________________________________________________________

Ed,

Giving this some further consideration, I don't understand why any adult in a position of organizational leadership would not see the nexus between Britton as an active and frequent Fair-vendor, in the name of LCI and LCI. I simply can't see that coming from any intelligent adult. I think you DO see the nexus quite clearly in fact. I think you see Britton's large role in Chester around children as frightening in that LCI enabled such access and proximity.

"Urgency," as you quote me, is not likely the appropriate term. I think "accountability" might be a better selection, as in: "The LCI does not want to examine the mirror for any possible 'accountability.'" If you did not fear such a nexus between Britton and MD44, you would not have voted him out in the speed in which you did. I fail to see how voting him out of office did any good at all. I'm guessing the conversation at the special meeting went something like this: "Holy Sh*t!!! We gave this guy un-fettered access to the town's children at the Chester Fair for YEARS and YEARS!!!" Similar conversations were heard in Cardinal Law's residence as well.

Well, good luck with that. And I AM holding the Chester Selectmen accountable for knowing he was a convicted sex offender and allowing him a professional presence at the annual town fair. They don't get to "just determine" for themselves that they imposed no danger to the children of chester.

And if you are wondering WHY I'm standing-up for proper review of official actions and accountability? Take a wild guess Ed. Go ahead.

Rob Brown
______________________________________________________________

Mr. Brown:

When the Chester Lions became aware of Mr. Britton actions, under the Code of Conduct and Lions Ethics they met and he was removed. This was the proper action to take given what had been learned.

According to local authorities there haven't been any reports of any incidents involving Mr. Britton as a Lion. The matter is in the courts and for you to imply that LCI is not coming clean on this and your unwillingness to call me and to have a discussion suggests to me that you have an agenda and are attempting to use the Lions to further that agenda.

From what I have been told, the town is well aware of the Lions actions.

Again you miss the point the New England Lions Council has nothing to do with operation and functions of clubs in New England. They don't have any power or authority to tell Multiple Districts or Districts what to do.

I'm in the office now 594-3544

_______________________________________________________________

Thank you for the explanation Ed. I've not called you as I don't allow any chance for hearsay errors to be passed along. As a uniform rule, I keep things in writing and fully transparent. "The written word endures. The spoken word is gone for ever." (Judge Moore of the Derry District Court)

As for using LCI as leverage for a standing agenda; I am not. It just so happens that Mr Britton was quite active in the community events while in capacity of/as a Lion.

My LCI-concern is that it was widely know within Chester that he is a convicted sex-offender and he played a role in the fair and the very popular LCI vending at the fair. Thus, I've been seeking a public statement by the organization that facilitated this exposure. We now certainly know he was a current-era offender given the dates of criminal discovery and charges. It only seems logical to dig a bit and seek explanation. The Chester Board of Selectmen have similar explanation due to the town beyond their arm-chair conclusion that "there was no danger in Mr Britton being a construction contractor," as stated to the Tri-town times. They did not however address the allowance of his role in the fair. But no one is asking "how did Gary Britton end-up in such a role within Chester." And ignorance of the list of 5 sex-offenders is no excuse at all.

Had I known that Gary Britton occupied and managed the Purple van during the Chester Fair, I would have sought an emergency halt via the Police and immediate judicial review.

I also want to know from the BOS if he was ever hired for school-house projects and/or recreation projects.

As for my standing agenda; It is to hold proximate organizations responsible for facilitating or covering-up potential abuse and/or negligence that affords an environment for abuse. As a community, we all seek safety as a priority for children. I don't doubt LCI is any exception to that rule, given your activities to help the poor. As a member of the community and as a father, I need to create an environment that says to ALL people and organizations that any neglect (willful or un-witting) will be called-out into the light and corrective action taken.

I'm guessing no official statement will come from either the BOS or LCI. Thus, the public will again be left to trust...and left vulnerable for trust broken. That, is truly frightening to me. But shy of willing-accountability OR self-examination, nothing will result from this case.

Well, People of the town successfully passed the buck until it wore-out.

The Lions Club refuses to self examine how their career habitual sex-offender chapter president ended up working in the child-intensive town fair for over 20 years.

The news papers will not touch it.

The court will not order the town to examine this at all.

The Board of Selectmen refuse to touch the topic.

So, no one is accountable.

This thing is not dead yet. It turns out that someone else is not taking this case at face value either.

Pictures at eleven.

The article and the documentation pretty-much says it all. I know the evil of human nature, but I did not expect a town to dig-in its heals so hard that they could not even be forced to examine the most major crime in its history...with the most dangerous breed of animal.

I'm sorry I was not even able to affect change in a stupid little Mayberry town.

Can anyone wager a guess (seriously) as to why the Board or Selectmen and/or the Lions Club would totally reject examination of elements that endangered children?

I'm not getting this at all. I refuse to believe there's any conspiracy or CSA perps in either entity. But why are they so averse to examination?

Why are they so averse to examination? Because abuse on any level, whether it be physical and or sexual abuse, begins and ends with how the human-being relates to a child or children in general.

Think about this Rob, our society generationally has thought of and concluded that children are 'property'. How many times have you heard a concerned stranger or friend of the family etc, be told by an suspected abusive parent, "Don't you dare tell me how to raise MY child!" etc etc. My property is my to do with as I please type of thinking. Children were property to gain and or be disposed of, back in the old European days and even colonially speaking one can reference in the colonial newspapers, many children being 'indentured' out, outside their families, sometimes by their own parent(s) so that their children's work, and subsequently 'income' could pay off debts or gain monetary funding necessary for the survival of the parent(s). Anyone researching immigration will learn this eventually, that as a reality, 'slavery' takes many forms, even today. Of course, to be indentured out also allowed that child to learn a trade and eventually not be a financial burden on the parents after a certain age as well.

So, lets jump ahead about two hundred years into the present 2011 and it becomes easier to understand why naturally the Selectman, so adverse to any relating to your concerns or those of the community in general, even remotely would cause them to have to look at and into themselves and society as a general whole. Its a ugly truth to look at Rob. Human's are not always strong enoguh to relate to their ugly truths and why they allow the monsters to roam about abusing others, whether it be a tree, a stream, or the ocean or whatever. Human's are disconnected from their relationship to earth, to life itself and to each other mostly. This is why I think sexual abuse of children just keeps repeating itself.

Human's forgetting how to be Human Beings in this reality we all live in.

That's just my two cents worth on the subject of why. Then again, its is confusing to me too at times, the why of it all. Guilt, Sin and Blame is the name of the game these days. Accountability and Responsibility went out the window a long time ago. It's people like you who will keep the balance.

Well George...I agree.

My analogy of societies hating mirrors is probably quite similar to what you are saying.

From behind, I've taken the Lions Club with their arm twisted behind their back and slammed their body against the mirror-bearing wall. I smash their self-righteous face into the mirror so hard the grease oozes-out. And they still won't look!

Maybe we've cycled-back to ancient times where/when the anonymous children were just something horses did not like to trample upon cuz their guts were slippery.

Wow! An entire town jam-packed with children and high-income, well-educated parents, not ONE person has said a peep about this.

THAT is pretty cool, don't you think? A habitual (career) child rapist, dating back to 1979 (rape under 13), stalking children, a child porn collection the size of the Library of Congress and FULLY defiant over registration and segregation from children...and not one person gives a flip.

The Lions Club "Man of The Year" and their president lived and moved around this town like every other person. The Board of Selectmen refuse to say if he's had access to the school as a contractor or not, and NO ONE says a word. How cool is THAT?

He was the favorite vendor at the fair for the past 20 years too. He manned his wicked-cool Purple People Feeder. Its a great big bright-colored purple van with cool names for hot-dogs and burgers and french fries! ALL the kids eat there cuz its wicked cool!! The town leaders claim they never knew Mr Britton was one of the 4 sex offender the child-rich town had. That's pretty cool when you think about it. Its just not right to profile anyone like that!

I wonder if these fine, Audi SUV-driving people will suppress what happens to their own kids. I think they would, because of the public stigma that would make them and little Billy stand out into freakdom. So...little Billy will never have to worry about Mom and Dad ruining his reputation in town.

I heard recently that we all need more "tolerance" in this country. I always thought it was about embracing or not shunning Gays and minorities. But this town is so wonderful and ahead of the curve that they will just turn away from stuff like this. And THAT must be a good thing !!!
