Another bad week for the Department of Corrections. Lieutenant Anthony Atella is being questioned and put in a line up for allegedly assaulting Kevin Novosad of Warwick. The Incident was not reported by millworks tavern owner Tim. WPRI is failing to cooperate with concerned citizens of RI. Who will Fail the tax payers next, in the name of the state.
