    Perth Amboy Politics always a toxic soup of “Mob Bullying” and “Corporate Psychopathy.” There’s always one, at the root of it. That would be Ken Balut. Its not common knowledge but its in the Minutes of a Council Meeting. Ken Balut lifted a Photo of Ben Ruiz from a Council Members Face Book page with out the Council Members knowledge. Sent it to Public Media. I believe the Hone News framing it as Ben being in Uniform at an Election was deviant of policy. It turned out that Ben was not in violation of any policy pretaining to his function at the Election. If Ken Balut would premeditate the lifting of a photo in an omitting manner, send it to Public Media in the above form and fashion. I feel its plausable for Ken Balut to premeditate other scenerios concerning Ben Ruiz. My Criminal Justice Professor at Middlesex County College once said, “Its not a crime to have a Criminal Mindset.” I say “look at the scapegoat and the Sociopath will be in the mix Everytime.” I’m not accusing Ken Balut of being a Sociopath. I’m simply saying do your research and find your own conclusion. Judith Haney
