Anthony Mondello of Philadelphia
THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, I’m surprised this a-hole hasn’t been put on blast here before. Anthony Mondello — nicknamed by some as Anthony Cuntdello — is a state probation & parole agent serving the Philadelphia and Allentown area. He has a huge attitude problem and a Napolean complex, using tactics such as screaming in his parolees’ faces and what’s essentially blackmail threats. He is a very rude, judgmental person to everyone, and definitely not just to the ex cons he micromanages. He has used his job title to utilize bully power, such as encouraging some probationees and/or parolees on his case list to abandon contact with their own children and in essence become deadbeat dads. In some cases he has threatened parolees with violations that carry jail time if they try to take responsibility for their own children.
Instead of looking to essentially waste taxpayer money and prison space by looking to send people to prison, he would be a more positive figure if he were to instead encourage them to build healthy positive family relationships and to take responsibility. He and a colleague engage in a possibly sketchy kickback program with a for-profit counseling services center–which rumor has it that this center has already been under fire in previous years for employing unlicensed therapists and a therapist who’d been previously arrested for prostitution (see Trickie Vickie in The Dirty archives). Ha the only awards he seems to get these days comes from that same counseling place. He seems to love sending probationees to prison for petty perceived violations, thus wasting away resources, taxpayer money, and prison space better reserved for the dangerously violent convicts. No wonder PA prisons have had such a big overcrowding issue. He’s a hypocrite too, given how he himself had a sketchy history–he was booted from applying for a real police officer job years back due to an apparent “disfavorable background check”. Also, Cuntdello runs his mouth about others, yet his own two sons have both been arrested: the older son for harassment and assault (assault charge later dropped), and the younger son for drug paraphernalia and disorderly conduct. Rather ironic karma right there. Cuntdello sucks and does not deserve his job.
