That right folks. The only reason that it has gone on for this long, is Zak must be paying the Brockport Police off. He is the main supplier of dope for the whole town of Brockport.

His employees are druggies and gang members.

I think it's time the FBI investigated this place. It's time to put this dope pusher where he belongs...

Hello----> a bong shop---> wake up Brockport Police!! Is every cop in that town crooked??

Content Customer of Go Ask Alice

AUTHOR: jroxlol - (United States of America)

I personally have been in Go Ask Alice many times. Does that make me a pothead? No! I'm not denying anything, but I have shopped in their. They have the best incense in the town, I got my nose pierced there, Shawna changed my lip ring for me when some idiot in the city used a lip ring that was too short for a fresh labret piercing, and i got my tapers there when i first started stretching my ears.

I trust Go Ask Alice over Pink Armadillo for my piercings anyday. I'm actually thinking about going there for another piercing soon, or having Chris do my first tattoo cuz im gonna be 18 in a few days. Bottom line is why the f**k would you wanna bust them when they're the best in town in the first place?!

This is funnier then any reality show. The proof that J.R. is behind this whole thing.

AUTHOR: Celine - (U.S.A.)

I'm a bored stay at home mom, and I love this site. Since I live in Brockport this report gave me a peeked my curious nature.

I have done words searches on this site to try and see who is the culprit.

I found this comment in a search that I did:

It seems that J.R. is pretending to be other people on here in order to get people in trouble and riled up. This is the only report where he admitted to what he was doing. In some of the other reports, he beats around the bush about it.

I also found another report where J.R. pretended to be some fellow named Mustaffa (he managed to spell the name wrong; Mustafa is the proper spelling for this common Muslim name) that worked at Wegmans with that guy Pete. It was a completely off the wall report about how Pete was a Nazi. I have also included it under the first bit of evidece (call it exibit B if you will).


http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/ripoff97435.htm

This is what he said (in the report):

(exibit A)


My job is fun, I love what I do!


Hey you losers. I almost had you Pete! I'm sure it got your family's blood boiling for a week or two till you retards figured it out. You have told me enough about your life and I am going to destroy you with it!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope you like all the magazines I am sending you. More are on the way. If I find a dead skunk, I will be sure to put it in your mailbox.

Later you deadbeats:

Don't let his anti-Wegmans propaganda fool you


I worked at Wegmans Warehouse the same dates this Pete Helfrich did and I am here to tell you that he is not only full of crap, but he is a neo-nazi supremacist pig!

I am 1st generation American, my family moving here in the late 70's from India.
My parents moved to a bad part of the city of Rochester (Avenue D for the ppl who know Rochester's ghettos)because that's all they could afford. Life in that neighborhood was tough-mostly black thugs who used to rob and beat me on a daily basis-but I stuck to the hard working ethics my immigrant parents taught me, and made it through high school. I earned a scholarship to RIT and worked at Wegmans Warehouse to get me through my 4 years of school. From 1999-2003, I toiled like crazy to make ends meat. In Feb of 2003, Peter Helfrich started to work with us and thus began the month from hell! He came in on a high horse-acting like he owned the place from the beginning. He constantly bragged that his grandmother was from Germany, which made him part of the "master race." Any of us employees who were from India, the Midddle East, or Asia were "3rd world scum" by his account and "Illegal parasites" and he constantly talked down to basically anyone who wasn't White.

Two employees who were friends of mine, one African-American and one Caucasian confronted this racist pig and he backed down like the true coward he is, saying he meant only to prove his "patriotism." However, when these two co-workers were not around, Peter would go around and say "seig-heil" and do the right handed Nazi salute!

Don't let his anti-Wegmans propaganda fool you; He is no better than members of the Bush administration! That is why this loser, Pete Helfrich, is no better than members of the Bush administration (he is a big supporter of George W. Bush, go figure!)It's no wonder that this fanatic only lasted one month at Wegmans Warehouse. Keep spreading your lies Pete! You're the "parasite on Unemployment!

J.R Cahoon is at it again


This is Pete Helfrich. Let me set the records straight. There never was a "Mustafa" working at Wegmans.

This is J.R Cahoon(the same loser I called a friend for nine years; for lack of better judgement)attempting to yank my chain and smear my name, once again.

This past Saturday morning(around one am)he called my house and left a death threat on the answering machine. I star 66ed it; and it was traced back to his home phone(he's a real brain wiz, calling from his own house).

If anyone thinks this clown is telling the truth, then your are as ignorant as he is.

J.R is under investigation for identity theft; when he used my account to buy gay pride t-shirts and various items of junk.

One more thing about J.R Cahoon. He works at a home for the handycapped. He was under investigation for spanking a patient. They never proved it. He has in the past told me "Sometimes those tards need a good smack upside the head. If you give them a quick swat; on the back of the head, it won't leave a mark".

I had a teacher that perfected the art(of swatting someone good enough to shock you, but not leave a mark)..

This guy is sick..

Since I have known him for 9+ years; he knew I worked at Wegmans..

You can think what you like.. I'm not what this clown says I am..

J.R. pranked my ex-girlfriends house 24/7

AUTHOR: Mike - (U.S.A.)

Gigs up J.R.:

You get your jolies pranking lesbians(BI), Jews, blacks, and gays.

My ex was black (bi) , and J.R. used to call her answering machine and leave death threats (pretending to be a Klansman), and other abusive hate pranks. Somehow he found out her address, and sent her prank cards, and body spray (he said she smelled like a chimp).

When I confronted him, of course he denied it. J.R. tried to blame it on someone else.

This fool likes starting trouble for people, so take what he says with an objective ear.

If you have a tape recorder, and one of those suction cup recording devices (Radio Shack $15) , you an easily catch him. Just give the tape to the cops.

I'm sure he will call you again, thats how stupid he is.

#6 UPDATE Employee

Will the "Real J.R. Cahoon" please fess up...

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

All I have to say is J.R. is the one pranking the store; he has been doing it for years. The next time he does it, take a good listen to the voice. His voice is hard to forget, even if he tries to mask it. The next time he pranks your shop, record the prank, or keep whatever evidence you have, and give it to the cops. They have voice recognition software, he will go to jail.

Don't take things into your own hands, he is not worth it. J.R. is just a wimp at heart. He goes around making threats towards people that tick him off, yet when he comes face to face with them, he is a coward.

I don't know the other kid, but I know J.R.'s "M.O.". This is right up his alley.

Once again, Pete Helfrich is starting rumors!

AUTHOR: J.R. - (U.S.A.)

I am J.R. Cahoon and I never wrote any of that above crap about Go Ask Alice, Chris Pound, or anyone else for that matter. That was just Pete Helfrich posing as me, trying to start shit as usual.

Well over a year ago Pete was a drunk ass in Barbers Grill and started talking smack to people. Pete almost got his scrawny ass kicked and somehow got it into his head that Chris Pound was to blame. After that (when I was still friends with him) he told me how he sent gay postcards to people who worked at Go Ask Alice, including Chris Pound and the owner Zak.


Like the pathetic coward he is, he left them unsigned and is now trying to involve me in this mess because he is too chickenshit to set foot in Brockport.

And as for his bashing of the Brockport Police-That's because he has had several reports written on him by the Brockport Police due to his harrassment of residents and merchants in town!



You know where I live, work out, and go to school Pete. Face me like a man anytime and we can settle this. I'm a little too old to be playing these pansy computer games with you.

#9 UPDATE EX-employee responds

I'd never work there; although I have inside information

AUTHOR: J.R. Cahoon - (U.S.A.)

This is J.R.:

Zach hit on my soon to be wife constantly; when she was barely 16! He knew she was dating me; I could not imagine that he would pull that with me. I thought he was my friend. It turns out Zach is just a self centered phoney, like the rest of his "Worker Bees".

If you are ever in Brockport, and want to know the truth about Zach "The Jail Bait Maniac", just stop by my house @:

66 Lyman Street
Brockport, NY

You can talk to Nicky, and myself. We have no reason to lie.

#10 Consumer Comment

Unfounded-thats your opinion--

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

The facts:

Chris Pound is in a BIKER GANG.

I would like everyone of those flea bags that work there to take a blood test for drugs. I know they sell the tonics that can let a person pass a pee test, and hair test. I'm sure they all have a few bottles on standby.

FACT:

Zac- used to hit on jailbait girls, when he was in his early 30's11 THAT'S A FACT!!

Ask J.R. Cahoon; he will tell you. His soon to be wife, Nicky was constantly harassed by Zac. Everytime he saw her, Zac would flirt with her/ask her out, etc. This girl was 16 at the time!!

This was 6-8 years ago, mind you; yet it is not the only case of his "teen-lust".

Anyone that defends this creaton is either uninformed, or part of his "Druggy Crowd". I'm sure Zac has put out some fires; yet he "fires one up" at 4:20 daily. Is a late 30's stoner the kind of person you want around your 15 year old daughter??

#11 Consumer Suggestion

Unfounded

AUTHOR: Brockport - (U.S.A.)

Zach, owner of Go Ask Alice, has probably done more for Brockport than anyone complaining about him. Go Ask Alice sells tattoos,jewelry,and cigarettes. They regularly donate to Project Graduation and other town events.

Zach is a volunteer firefighter in Brockport, and has helped put MANY fires out. When he isn't fighting fires, you can find him socilizing in town or with his wife and son.

What have ANY of you done for this town? What are you doing right now? Sitting alone at your computer wishing people liked you and you weren't a social misfit, get a hobby looser!

P.S. There aren't even any gangs in Brockport. How could employees be gang members?

It is common knowledge that Go Ask Alice is the place to go for drugs.

ACID
COCAINE
POT
METH
GHB
CRANK

The question is; when will something be done about it?

I would not put it past the Brockport cops being in on the whole thing. They had a shake down in the department a few years back. Cops were fired, and others "retired" early.
