Nexus and Their Lies
Mille Lacs News
When we first heard that Nexus was relocating convicted sex offenders into
our neighborhood, my first reaction was of course "Not In My Back Yard!"
But now that I've gotten to know them better, I can tell you this - I don't
want them in my community - Period! And I'm not just talking about the sex
offenders, but also about the people who work for Nexus - from the bottom on
Nexus: A Bad
Let's start at the bottom. At first, I didn't have anything against the low
level employees - until I experienced hateful harassment from a few of
them - just because I didn't want them in my personal living space. I've
even received several nasty e-mails from one of their spouses. I
thought: Are these the kind of adults who should be setting an example for
the troubled youth? Should they even be working with teenagers? Wouldn't it
be wiser to have mature, qualified, professional employees who are clear
thinkers - and who can spell? The ones I've encountered seem a little ....
well, nutty themselves... Very hateful people. Very angry.
But these lower levels are nothing compared to the man at the top. CEO Jim
D'Angelo said that Nexus would leave the area if they did not receive
property tax exemption. They didn't get it, and yet they still intend to
build here. So, Jim D'Angelo is a liar.
also said, "We will leave a small footprint." That's kind of like saying
that Crater Lake is a pot hole. Have you seen the plans? The new facility
will be HUGE. It is imposing. Some of the buildings are three stories high
and will be visible above the neighbors' trees. Again, Jim D'Angelo is a
Jim D'Angelo said that the community would have input as to the plans for
the buildings, their design and placement. Nobody in the neighborhood was
consulted. He lied again.
Speaking of trees... He said that no trees on the property would be cut
down. Now we learn that the plan calls for the forest to be clear cut!
That's right, that beautiful woods will be gone. Jim D'Angelo is a chronic
liar. Maybe he can't help himself.
said that safety is not an issue. We find out that he has lied about
escapes. We find out about former inmate Paul Knutson, Dustin Hoium, and
Larry Black, just a few examples of MLA clientele. Sexual psychopaths aren't
dangerous??? Jim D'Angelo lies.
Nexus: The Big
But I doubt that his lying is the reason he is leaving Nexus. The
corporation itself is dishonest. Look at the way they juggle money between
Nexus and Nexus Diversified. Look at how they misrepresent their sex
offender correctional institutions by calling them "academies". They
pretend to be a non-profit charity in order to dodge taxes.
Not only do the Nexus people lie, they also cheat. And right
now they are working on cheating us tax payers by trying to get tax
abatement. If they succeed, they will be cheating everyone in the
we want people like this in our community?
am indeed a naysayer. I say nay. Get rid of them. I do not support their
dishonesty. I am not bamboozled by them. I'm smarter than that.
