John Lavoie supports Sand, Sorrell and Maguire otherwise as he is bound by attorney ethical precepts to report violations of the rules of professional responsibility.
Now the truth, Lavoie was charging with throwing vinnie's family a bone with the hope that they would go away wagging their tails. It worked for a while. Now Lavoie and his government attorney friends will blow off vinnie's murder. Vermont justice, get used to it.

Sorrell and Sand have been elected by the people of vermont as top notch lawyers and compassionate human beings. Maguire too has the praise of all of the people of vermont. Their decisions are flawless as is Vermont judges and John Lavoie. If the honorable Lavoie thought others should have been prosecuted, they would be facing charges right now. Vermont government lawyers and judges are the height of fair play and propriety.

Chad. Believe me he knows it wasn't you. He was just implying that the post was a person using an alias of "Chad". I can honestly say you weren't even in his thoughts.

Randy I just want to let you know that I have never been on this site until tonight when my mother showed me an e-mail sent in June from a Chad. That definately was not me.

Wow Vinnie and Ronnie. I just listened to your taping of Sand and his treats to yous. He is a scumbag from day 1. I'm so glad you got him on tape as I think it is great that everyone can hear it for themselves and finally understand what yous have been saying about sand is true. Sand is so corrupt and should of been fired a long time ago. I hope that sometime in the future you will write a book on Lil Vinnie and the corruption in their system Vermont. I really have to tell yous, I don't know how you ever did this along with everything yous have been through. Yous are amazing. May God Bless your family and may Little Vinnie Rest in Peace.

Mr. Tamburello. Your tape of Robert Sand is incredible! I can't belive someone of his position would actually threaten you like he did. I must admit that was a good move putting that tape on your site. There is no doubt now what a corrupt official he is. What amazes me even more is the Attorney general's office being involved in everything. They can't deny it. It's in Sand's own words. I hope this shows people up here that it's time for change. I won't be voting for Sorrell and I know a lot of other people that has changed their minds about him. Thank you for putting that on your site. I've followed your incredible story from the beginning and your resolve and dedication to your son is amazing. I wish you the best of luck in your struggle and pray you get the justice you're looking for. God Bless you and your family!

Happy birthday Lil Vinnie. Hugs to the Tamburello's

Happy Birthday Vinnie! I know how hard this must be for your family. God Bless you and may you Rest In Peace!

I heard about your site for a while (I’m an avid fan of your son on the challenges) and finally got a chance to check it out. I am amazed at your site, disgusted by what happened to Vinnie and the initial process of the case and pleased someone finally took this murder to justice.
The thought of loosing my son easily brings me to tears and to hear about how you lost your Vinnie makes me fearful of this world even more. It’s maddening to hear of those in authority and power who use that authority and power in abusive, self-righteous ways. I also know that there are those who handle it well and appropriately and often get overshadowed by the bad ones. Thank God you were guided by your strong will to come into contact with some of those good ones to do the right thing.
In regards to David Cahill, I am not sure who exactly he thinks he is commenting on your site, especially in such a manner. I also work for a government agency and there would be no hesitancy in loosing my job if I conducted myself in such a manner. I just wonder where some people’s ethics are!
I pray that you and your family are finding peace and having a lot of laughs with each other over all of the great times with Vinnie. Thank you for sharing your story!

Mr. Tamburello, what a beautiful tribute to your son. I can't imagine the heartache of having to fight for 4 years. I know Vinny must be so proud of you! Robert Sand's career is gone. He is a pariah around here. Google his name and your site comes up and tells all about his misdeeds. Keep up the fight. God Bless You and good luck.
08-09-2012 4:52:44 AM EST
This is heartbreaking...I am so sorry for your families loss
07-18-2012 8:13:07 AM EST
M.C., Thank you for your kind words. It's comforting to know that Vinnie has touched someone from across the world. It brings solace to me and my family when someone from another country takes the time to display their thoughts and feelings to us. It just shows that justice knows no boundaries. Thank you and God Bless.

it is just for a short time that i heard what happenned to vinnie ;i am from an other contry so the news came to me a little bit late ;but what i want to say to you is that in all over the world there are a lot of sad stories ; like realy a lot .. ; stories that are worst ; less ; or just like what happend to your dear son ; but what's different in Vinnie's story is that he has a beautiful strong family that cares about him; cares about the justice; cares about Vinnies justice;even if he is gone.
you didn't give up because you loved your son and you are still loving him ; and im sure that he loves you very well .
you're son's story had touched me very well even that i don't know him in any way i atually cried when i was reading those pages ; every human being will cry ..... ; and what touched me even more is how you wrote those pages as broken broken broken broken father ; so plz let me just say that i m terribly sorry about what happend with you and tell you that the world would be a better place with people and fighters for the good like you ;people who have a heart and ready to what ever it takes for their children ;you remind us of what our parents are ready to do for us ; and what we mean to them .
it's been a time now;;; but i don't think that it was enough to help you forget your son ; maybe time helpes to minimize the pain but it will never take of the memory of your mind so let it be a good memory then just all the good things about your son .
(thank you ; and i must apologyze for my English that i speek just a little bit all the best M.C)

I read all these messages about Arbuckle and agree he belongs in jail forever. I know you all talk about him being a repeat offender for DUI, but his record is far worse then that this is a guy who has beat numerous woman, Arbuckles brother used to dated and has a child with Kyles current GF Michelle he was charged with assult on her years ago then she dropped the charges against him, Tim then abused his GF at the time Kelly Kindschi she just never reported him, He was then charged with Domestic assault on Darcy Lovell, Katie Kingsbury, Jen Wilson and there was some investigation on him abusing another GF Ashley Merrow and her son, He is a felon he hunts regularly when not locked up yet isnt suppose to have a gun, He put his own father in the hospital who has since passed away, DUI isnt even a quater of the monster this man is, He has abused many woman the above are just names that have publicly been thrown out there, He gets drunk and fights with everyone then drives around and has been this way since in High school he's now 30+ and still doing it this guy alone shows they lack in Vermonts Judicial system, In the state of Vermont you will do more time for having drugs then for abusing or even killing someone, I am by no means defending Sands but he isnt the only screwed up member of Vermonts Judical system there are many of them. Vermont should do the world a favor and sit Arbuckle in a federal prison for life.

Chad, it's clear you're signing this under a fictitious name. no person with any self respect would come onto this site and spew such garbage. While I'm not going to get into the particulars of the case, because I'm sure your more knowledgable than the general public about the outcome, I'm sure you're not happy with the result. I'm sure you also know it only took a jury 2 hours to determine that Bolaski would spend a looooooooong time in jail for his actions. Deliberations like that don't happen in 2 hours if there was any doubt. Now, the easiest thing for belligerence to do is point fingers when one isn't happy with the result. But the fact remains, Bolaski was wrong, his buddies are wrong, and you're wrong.

Thank you Tommy. It's nice to hear when Vinnie has touched someone's life in such a positive way. We miss him so much and it's comforting to know that he lives on in the hearts of so many.

I went to school with Vinny at St. Catherines. Im not going to claim we were best friends. I hated the fact that he was better at everything athletically than I was, except baseball, but that was only because he didn't play. Even thought he knew he was better it was still fun to compete with him because he never made you feel inferior. Its hard to describe, but it existed. The best way to describe it was, his cockiness was contagious. I remember the kid that skateboarded down by St. Catherines, the kid that would play ball in the projects, he even played hockey with us honkies. I remember he had a million hats, once egged me and my friends at Halloween, but apologized later because he didnt know it was me. I remember the kid that I was jealous of...but couldn't help but like him. He had this smile, that smile is what I remember. Im sorry for your loss. I just randomly thought of him today and I was so saddened to find out what transpired...I had no idea. I moved out of Charlestown awhile ago. I also wasn't aware of his struggles, like so many of us Townies go through. Basically, I just want you to know that that young fun-loving kid you remember....I remember him that way too. God bless.

Vin, I just read your Vinnie & Trayvon Martin comparison. Well said, my friend, well said. I love how you listed by name each and every person that ignored your pleas. I love Rob's idea to take out an ad at election time. Most of all, I love you comment that TRAYVON HAS THE WILL OF AN ENTIRE NATION BEHIND HIM! *VINNIE HAS ONLY US. I suppose African-Americans have learned that they must unite to fight for justice. Most whites have never experienced injustice. We need to learn from them. The only way I know how to do that is to keep screaming as loud as I can. I think we also have to keep sharing the injustices of others even if it's just one person at a time. I shared Vinnie's story - along with others that are in our shoes - in my letter to the editor - What Makes The Ideal Victim comparing Adam's murder to Trayvon's - all the way down in Odessa TX. We have to make people aware that things like this happen everywhere, every day, to every race. I think most white people would never expect something like this unless, God forbid, it happens to them. I know I didn't. Blacks expect injustice in the justice system. They know it happens because it happens to them in greater numbers. We have to spread the word and hope that someday someone will listen. Take care and keep up the fight. I know you will.

Mr. Tamburello you're absolutely right, it's not only unfair but criminal. The similarites between Vinnie's and Trayvon's killing are amazing! It's incredible they are being handled so differently and it's a sad but true fact that the only reason is because of their race. It's a fact that angers me because as you point out it it takes away from the seriousness of the crimes and puts a race card on them. You've nothing to be ashamed of Rob. It's those that are using the deaths for personal gain, Sand, Sorell Holder, Obama, just to name a few, are the people that should be ashamed. They play the race card and puts us in a bad light. While it's true that Jackson and Sharpton are doing this for their own agendas they got results. Now if they would only do the same for Vinnie Then they could really say that they are for justice for everyone not just their race. But that won;t happen. Mr. Tamburello I wish you the best of luck in your fight and pray that you and your family get the justice you so rightly deserve.

Rob, I must say, your post is by far one of the most passionate and emotional messages I've ever received. I'm very sorry to hear about your family's loss of your parent's first born. Vinnie was our first born also. It doesn't matter the age the pain is the same. Please give them our heartfelt condolences. You're absolutely right in what you say, they probably wouldn't do what they're doing if they didn't feel they would be held accountable. The same goes for Eric Holder, President Obama, etc. And that's the shame of it all because it perpetuates ambiguity. They make it into what it becomes, a question of race rather than justice and, because of the way this was handled by the justice system, this is not going to be avoided. Trayvon's parent's deserve the truth and justice. Unfortunately to get this they will have to pay the price of relying on a justice system that is rife with hypocrisy and deceit. My heart goes out to them. Thank you for your kind words of solace and Peace to you and your family

I just read the Trayvon Martin section and am so ashamed that I stopped reading it before picking it up again. As a black man, the injustices and privileges we are granted in this country make me cower in shame. The two pimp stooges who claim to be the ambassadors for black people are nothing but hustling vultures who are some of the most hypocritical beings I have ever seen. They are some of the most divisive individuals I have ever seen and I will go as far as saying that their bias perpetuate racial tensions in this great nation. As far as the Trayvon Martin killing, which is incredibly sad and atrocious, the reason why a lot of black leaders helped out is because if they didn't, they would have been outcasted from our community and called "traitors." That is right, this race thing is so astonishingly idiotic that we have concepts like that still around. Race is still an issue in the U.S. As a member of the black community, I must denounce the immense hypocrisy and baffling bias we have. It's disgraceful and I condemn that kind of behavior. You should run an ad, during the next election in Vermont, denouncing Robert Sand and his commarades' wrongful handling of criminals in the Vermont area. He is, pardon my language, a slimy reptilian crocodile who, in my belief, has secrets he's hiding by helping out these offenders. My parents burried their first child. He died as an infant and that pain still haunts my dear mother. Please accept my earnest and most sincere best wishes you seem like a hard working, honest family man trying to get by in the world. May each day be a new start of life for you and your folks and you aren't fighting alone.
With love and resolution,

I have watched CT for years on MTV. I remember hearing about his brother so last night I researched it. I read your entire site and had nightmares last night as if I experienced what you have had to endure. My heart is so sad and appalled by the ferocity with which those scum plotted your son's murder. You should write a book to get more attention to the horrible injustices served on your family. Sands should be behind bars as should all of the degenerates involved. I can't fully express how deeply your son's murder and the aftermath has affected me! Keep us posted on all of the losers involved and I hope they one day truly feel the pain they caused everyone.

Anonymous, believe me I know your frustration. I understand how you and many other Vermonters feel about not being able to rely on the judicial system to protect you, especially in White River Junction where Robert Sand has made it a safe haven for criminals. But taking the law into your own hands is never the answer. You as a citizen should never have to be in the position to protect you and your family and face the consequences of doing so. Unfortunately, because of corrupt officials who care more for the criminal element than their own citizens, people are being forced into that decision. But Resorting to vigilante justice will only make things worse. The best way to protect yourself is not with guns or violence but with your vote. Use it to make sure that corrupt officials like Robert Sand are taken out of office. This is how the people must protect themselves. I wish you luck.

Another man was shot in the back in White River junction. For no apparent reason. They traced the shooter to his apartment, found the gun and DIDN'T ARREST HIM! This time in Hartford. Then they tell us it's safe! But even if they do arrest him Robert Sand will just let him go anyway, so why bother. We're just not safe anymore. We can't trust our judicial system to protect us so we have to protect ourselves!

DISGRACEFUL, DESPICABLE, DISHONORABLE! I can't think of better words to describe Robert Sand's and David Cahill's actions. Sand's now making his puppet do his dirty work. They have to go. I agree with fed up, we need someone in there that's going to fight for us not the criminals.
