Civil Air Patrol’s Sean Dey Sentenced to Prison

[Editor’s note: All we can say is, thank you for your contribution.]

Last night you released a reader comment stating that a retired US Marine and member of Civil Air Patrol had been arrested by the ATF for manufacturing and selling fully automatic machine guns. The comment advised that Civil Air Patrol’s Sean Dey, 40, of Torrington, CT had just been sentenced to two years in prison for his crime of manufacturing and selling these weapons. He is required to report to prison on March 29.

In support of Sean Dey, a memo submitted by his defense attorney(s) stated that Dey

“served honorably in the Marine Corps, and his four-year term of service included a deployment to Kosovo during the Kosovo War. Since that time, Mr. Dey’s service to his country has continued, including through his civic engagement with the Civil Air Patrol and most importantly through his long-term care of another military veteran, his wife,” for whom he cares each day.

The response in the judgment would have none of that.

“The fact that Mr. Dey knew the fully automatic firearms he manufactured were (1) illegal, (2) being resold by a friend, and (3) being resold to individuals whom he neither knew nor cared to know. The fact that he personally sold one machine gun to a convicted felon in Bridgeport, Connecticut. The fact that he knew the machine guns he made were being sold not in his backyard, but in Bridgeport, Connecticut, over an hour away from his own home. Such behavior failed to ‘exemplify the ultimate in ethical and moral behavior’ and to ‘do what is right, to adhere to a higher standard of personal conduct, to lead by example, and to make tough decisions under stress and pressure.’”

On first read of that comment with no support, I guessed you had been fooled by one of Civil Air Patrol’s dirty little cadet cyber-trolls. However, the story is true and Dey and his wife really were members of Northwest Hills Composite Squadron, Torrington, CT.

The original comment also suggested that the Civil Air Patrol is a “gateway” organization and was dropped onto an older story about our cadets receiving firearms training from a KKK weapons instructor. I have watched members of Civil Air Patrol’s counter-drug program suggest that cannabis is a “gateway drug” while their corrupt commanders push Jack Daniels on their social media. This month’s reports about alcohol related rapes at our military service academies reveal a serious problem and not something that Civil Air Patrol members and commanders should be mocking. Here are a few images you may need at some point in time. [links redacted]

Where is the failed self-serving Heather Wilson in all of this?

In case you haven’t already done the work, Civil Air Patrol proudly announced in September 2016 that Major Jessica Dey was succeeding Major Timothy Ceritello as commander of Northwest Hills Composite Squadron. Ciretello previously took command of that squadron on November 6th 2014. According to its website, Northwest Hills Composite Squadron meets weekly on Thursdays at the Torrington Armory. Addresses for Jessica and Sean Dey have been identical.

Your quick tour through CAP social media shows the attitude of Civil Air Patrol leaders from Pacific Region to Southeast and Northeast Regions. Through decades of grooming and brainwashing our commanders have somehow regressed back to the late 1950s and early 1960s to send up a program that is once again in dire need of a Phoenix reconstruction.

    [Admin: this appears to be a reference to a recent threat against one of our elected officials.]

    More evidence that we have a problem with right wing radicalization on our military and paramilitary organizations.

    Hasson’s hit list included former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke and U.S. Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson. Also on the list were U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

    “Have to take serious look at appropriate individual targets, to bring greatest impact. Professors, DR’s, Politian’s, Judges, leftists in general,” Hasson wrote in a draft email on June 2, 2017. “Much blood will have to be spilled to get whitey off the couch.”

    Christopher Paul Hasson, 49, of Silver Spring, Maryland, is alleged to be a white supremacist who had a hit list that included prominent Democratic politicians as well as several journalists from CNN and MSNBC.

    When you say that CAP has “dirty little cadet cyber trolls,” do you have any way to justify that?

  5. Just to be helpful, this story would be much better if you included the passage from the Register article that reads:

    The memo submitted by the defense said that Sean Dey “served honorably in the Marine Corps, and his four-year term of service included a deployment to Kosovo during the Kosovo War. Since that time, Mr. Dey’s service to his country has continued, including through his civic engagement with the Civil Air Patrol and most importantly through his long-term care of another military veteran, his wife,” for whom he cares each day.

    I have a problem with this. Indoctrinating young people into the political bullshit we are seeing come out of Civil Air Patrol senior members is hardly a civic contribution. Way too many (but not all) former service members seem to be demanding a bully-pulpit cult of no question adoration in exchange for contacts, opportunity and advancement. This is just like Gen Edwin Walker from the 1960s.

    I have a multi-part story about how General Edwin Walker tried to push his “Pro-Blue” indoctrination program on the 24th Infantry Division soldiers in Europe in 1959. This included conspiracy material from the John Birch Society and other budding hate groups of the time that were designed to oppose the Civil Rights Movement. Gen Walker was called out by the soldiers and the press and Eisenhower removed him from command. He resigned from the Army and turned to actively oppose integration in the south. In 1976 Walker was caught for lewdness in a Dallas park restroom attempting to fondle a male undercover police officer. He was caught again in 1977.

    At the same time Gen Walker was violating the Hatch Act in Europe in 1959, our CAP “Colonel” David Harold Byrd was Chairman of the National Board of Civil Air Patrol in 1959. He was a member of the Dallas Petroleum Club, friend of LBJ and never served a day of real military service in his life. Yet he was regularly photographed in the Civil Air Patrol uniform as a Colonel or Brig General. Colonel Byrd was Chairman of the National Board when Brig General Stephen McElroy appointed Captain David Ferrie as aide to the CAP National Commander

    It is not only “patsy” Civil Air Patrol member Lee Harvey Oswald who has been implicated in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. CAP co-founder David Harold Byrd owned the Texas School Book Depository and Oswald was able to get a job there, even after he had taken a shot at General Walker. After JFK’s assassination, Byrd preserved the TSBD window from which Oswald had fired in a sick celebration of the victory. I can show that Byrd personally profited from LBJ’s reversal of JFK’s October 1963 order to exit Vietnam. You don’t have any stories that mention Byrd and Walker at all, so I would be happy to give all this history to you, lock-tight, if you are interested?

    [Admin: Yes, the editors are interested. There was a comment that appeared some time ago, but no one ever followed through to provide the details. We do have the story about Ferrie and McElroy. We welcome whatever you can provide.]

  6. If you [redacted]-wads think you can dissuade me and my CAP cadets from learning how to take out the filthy walking dead by attending an NRA Basic Marksmanship Encampment (BME), you got another thing coming.

  7. You people seem to have some objection to alcohol and guns?

  8. Has Civil Air Patrol changed their regulations on how members represent the program in their personal lives? If I give money to the org, can I run a legal prostitution business in Nevada and still be a squadron commander to these boys?

    • [Redacted] I didn’t think you [redacted] would print junk like this. Just FYI, Bill Conkling is running an incredible farm operation for cadets who are far, far higher than those at West Point or Annapolis.

      Wait a minute. If it is legal for CAP cadets of age and Senior Members to legally consensually sodomize each other, then what is wrong with CAP senior members possessing firearms (legal ones), promoting alcohol consumption, and legally patronizing hookers like Air Force Amy at the Bunny Ranch in Nevada on Military Appreciation Night?

      Some of your readers and commenters need to get over their [redacted] pacifist and puritanical bias.
