Crime

On Wednesday October 15, 2014 the Nevada ANTI CORRUPTION CRIME SCENE tape made its way to a Ross Miller for Nevada AG fundraiser in Reno, NV.

IMG_3697On Wednesday October 15, 2014 the Nevada ANTI CORRUPTION CRIME SCENE tape made its way to a Ross Miller for Nevada AG fundraiser in Reno, NV.

Tonja Brown wanted to remind Ross Miller about her ongoing issues. Adam Laxalt is not immune from the protest and both these potential AG candidates must deal with the years old issue.

Then just today we see this:

Wow, Laxalt family members endorse and not – that’s gotta hurt

Ross Miller Nevada is corrupt

Ross Miller Nevada is corrupt

The past year has been a trying time for our family — the Laxalt family. Sadly, we have been forced to face the loss of several cherished family members. This challenge has made many of us stop and pause about what truly does matter in life.

During our journey, we have found a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that best captures the essence of a core value that has guided us throughout our lives — the value of speaking up for what is right. He wrote, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

In the spirit of King’s words, then, we can no longer be silent as we seek to maintain the integrity of our home state of Nevada.

Therefore, we collectively speak up to support Ross Miller as the most qualified candidate to be our state’s attorney general.

It is our belief that Ross Miller’s documented history of pulling himself up by his own bootstraps and establishing a well-respected career in law and public service while still maintaining a strong sense of family and community constitute the critical characteristics needed for Nevada’s highest legal office.

We ask that our fellow Nevadans follow our lead by speaking up with their own votes during this election season.

Know that our message does not originate from a Republican, Democratic or even family affiliation. It has to do with the most basic question all voters must ask themselves when they step into the voting booth, “Who really is the best qualified candidate for attorney general for the state of Nevada?”

Will Mr. Adam Laxalt who is running for Nevada Attorney General look the other way with regard to that Attorney General’s Office having a practice and a policy of withholding evidence from Plaintiff’s in cases?
adam_laxaltWill Mr. Adam Laxalt  who is running for Nevada Attorney General look the other way with regard to that Attorney General’s Office having a practice and a policy of withholding evidence from Plaintiff’s in cases?
We know that Secretary of State Ross Miller who is running for the same position does when he along with the Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval, and  Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto were presented with evidence by Ms. Tonja Brown during the December 5, 2011 and May 17, 2012 Board of Prison Commissioners meetings.
Ms. Brown provided the Commissioners with this information along with her documents that supported her testimony before them.  Ms. Brown asked of them to call for an outside investigation into the Attorney General’s Office.   Her testimony and documents were then stricken and removed from the record.

Brown claims that they did not place on the record her documents until after she had filed suit in July 2013 and to this day not all of the documents have seen the light of day, nor have they done as she had requested of them during the December 5, 2011 and May 17, 2012 Board of Prison Commissioners meeting.Tonja Brown informs Gov. Brian Sandoval and NAG Catherine Cortez Masto of 1st Amendment Rights violations and lawsuit

Ms. Brown filed suit against the Board of Prison Commissioners, NDOC, and DAG William Geddes and DAG Kara Krause in July 2013 for a Breach of Settlement Agreement she had made with the State in thewrongful death suit of her brother, Nolan Klein.
Brown claims that they did not place her documents on the record until after she filed suit and served them and as of this date not all of the documents have seen the light of day, nor have they done as she had requested of them and that they had her documents blocked from anyone accessing them.

She claims they have breached the terms ofthe Settlement Agreement she made with them.  A trial date has been set forApril 6 & 8, 2015 in the First Judicial District Court, Department 2 Judge James Wilson.

A brief summary of this case.

Nolan Klein passed away 5 years ago on September 20, 2009 from lack of medical care by the Nevada Department of Corrections.Just prior to Mr. Klein’s death the evidence was found hiding in the Washoe County District Attorney files that would have exonerated him from the 1988 Payless Shoe Store crime.

In October 2011 Ms. Brown hired a private investigator to locate the prime suspect, Mr. Zarsky.   The Sparks Police theory was they believed Mr. Zarsky had committed the crime Nolan Klein was convicted of.   In November Ms. Brown drove to another state and had the opportunity to listen to what Mr. Zarsky had to say.

Mr. Zarsky admitted he had knowledge of the Payless Shoe Store crime and the 3 other crimes the SPD believed he had committed. The victims from the 3 other crimes had cleared Mr. Klein and all was hidden by the Washoe County District Attorney’s office.

 In two of the cases the May 9, 1988 Payless Shoe Store robbery for which Mr. Klein was convicted of and the April 21,1988 armed robbery and attempted rape that the victim had cleared Mr. Klein of and hidden this fact from the defense and jury.  The victims in these cases two separate cases had described the knife as being red and black again, all hidden from the defense by Mr. Rachow and covered up by the Washoe County District Attorney’s Office.
In 2009 just prior to Mr. Klein’s death Judge Brent Adams ordered District Attorney Richard Gammick to turn over the DNA test results and the entire file in Mr. Klein’s case.    Located in the files were the handwritten notes from ADA Ronald Rachow defying a 1988 court order to turn over all of the evidence. The Washoe County District Attorney’s office knew about what Mr. Rachow had done and kept quite.

In Mr. Klein’s file were over 200 documents hidden from the defense mostly exculpatory evidence.  During the January 17 – 23 1989 trial  Mr. Rachow presented only 20 exhibits, mostly, photographs of the Payless Shoe Store crime scene.In 2010 Ms. Brown filed suit against the NDOC in the wrongful death of Nolan Klein.  During the discovery process Ms. Brown discovered that the Attorney General’s office had withheld evidence in one of Nolan’s federal civil cases against the NDOC.  Ms. Brown claims that ultimately this new development with regard to this evidence had a profound adverse effect on Mr. Klein’s  2007 Parole Board hearing and 2008 Compassionate Release Pardon.

 As a part of the Settlement Agreement  Ms. Brown made with the State she could exonerate their names.  When she went to do this at the December 5, 2011 and May 17, 2012 Board of Prison Commissioners they claimed the documents were deemed confidential and would not be placed on the record.  Ms. Brown demanded that they call for an investigation into the Attorney General’s Office for withholding evidence, file a complaint with the State Bar of Nevada against Mr. Geddes for withholding evidence in Mr. Klein’s federal case, and write a letter of apology to her.   They have refused to do so.Brown then filed suit Tonja Brown v NDOC, Governor Brian Sandoval, Attorney General Katherine Cortez Masto, Secretary of State Ross Miller, DAG William Geddes, DAG Kara Krause in Carson City, NV for Breach of Settlement Agreement. Trial is set for next April 2015.

Brown states that because of their refusal to as she has requested of them she has been prevented from seeking a Posthumous Pardon for Mr. Nolan Klein because the documents that were disseminated by the NDOC to the 2007 Parole Board and 2008 Pardons Board still  contain the  information pertaining to Mr. Klein and Ms. Brown.
Some of this false information was a direct result of a June 5, 2007 computer glitch that “FLIPPED” when the NOTIS software program was installed at the NDOC, thereby,  placing false felony charges in inmates files making it appear as though they have committed new crimes.
This information was then submitted to the 2007 Parole Board at which time Mr. Klein was appearing before them.  Mr. Klein then was denied his parole to the street in February 2008 and his previous granted paroles were revoked and he was placed back onto his first life sentence.
The following year, Mr. Klein appeared before the Nevada Pardons Board on a Compassionate Release Pardon because he was dying.  The Nevada Pardons Board consisted of the Nevada Supreme Court Justices, Attorney General Katherine Cortez Masto, and Governor James Gibbons. The Pardons Board were given a copy of the interview of Washoe County District Attorney Richard Gammick publicly admitting that he opened up Mr. Klein’s DNA and tested it. Mr. Klein’s attorney’s demanded to know where the test results were.
 The Nevada Pardons denied Mr. Klein a Compassionate Pardon and Mr. Klein died on September 20,2009.  At the time of Mr. Klein’s death his attorney’s were about to file their Motions for New Trial based on Newly Discovered evidence, and bail.  Mr. Klein’s criminal case was still pending on Appeal in the 9th Circuit.  Once Mr. Klein died everything became Moot!
Ms  Brown said “although Nolan is gone he is not forgotten.”   “The day he is given a Posthumous Pardon and Washoe County is held responsible for their actions will be the day I will let this go”
” the truth will be told in the upcoming release of her book “To Prove His Innocence  A Sister’s Love”

FBIWe got a call from the Reno FBI Terror agent as soon as this posting was released. This is not a “terror threat”. We are asking what about terror in Carson City since they talked about Las Vegas. ISIS has crossed the southern boarder and made threats to bomb US cities, is Carson City on that list?  If you read this post, you’ll see we are also promoting a “peaceful” ANTI CORRUPTION protest during the Nevada Day parade.

FBI protest Reno Nevada Federal building

The calls were productive and we were able to express many of our issues about corruption in the Nevada courts, law enforcement and State agencies. We got about 2 hours of their ear(s) and told them about how we’ve been “terrorized” by an out-of-control government right here in Reno and Carson City.

FBI Protest Carson City Nevada

In the past, The FBI has never returned calls or answered complaints the we have filed. We have been told not to call about corruption tips we receive on threats and corruption.   We are not proposing a terror attack. In fact, we a patriots and we see the corruption carried out by corrupt government official in Carson City and elsewhere as “Terrorism”. We have been peaceful and legally used our 1st amendment (not the second) and the US Federal Courts to make know out demands the justice is served. Clearly these people are paranoid and we wonder how they sleep at night knowing how many people they have fucked over. We find it interesting the FBI calls about this blog and a protest and ignores our requests and demands to investigate corruption in the Nevada courts, law enforcement and much more. See this related story: Skeptics who utilize free speech are defined by Homeland Security as “domestic extremists.” Anyone who tells the truth in America is instantly discredited. Indeed, to speak truth in America is a high risk activity.”

In 2008 there were some “security concerns” and Dirty Harry Reid had to sit out the parade.

Angle Walks Parade Route (Twice) While Reid Watches National Review Online | 10/31/2010 | Elizabeth Crum harry reidDo the choices of the Senate candidates at Saturday’s Nevada Day parade in Carson City portend the election results on Tuesday?

Neavda-senate-Angle

Sharron Angle walked the two-mile route — twice

Harry Reid opted to sit and be a spectator rather than walk the parade route, while Sharron Angle walked the two-mile route — twice. Angle has often been called the “Energizer bunny” of Nevada politics. If she had not earned that moniker before, she did so this weekend. The Angle campaign reported this morning that Angle arrived home in Reno after midnight following Friday’s get-out-the-vote rally in Las Vegas with Senator McCain, Michael Reagan and Jon Voight. At 6 a.m. Saturday, she was driving to Carson City for the Republican Women’s traditional pancake breakfast before the annual parade’s start. Angle served meals and talked with attendees for three hours, until she had shaken hands with every last one of them. She was the last to leave. Choosing to take the local Republican womens’ chapter up on their impromptu offer to walk with their float near the front of the parade, Angle then went back and walked the route a second time.harry reid In contrast, Reid greeted spectators and participants before the parade’s start, and then sat and watched the procession. Staffers said Reid was advised not to walk or ride a car in the parade because of “security concerns.”

FBI head says no new threats for Las Vegas – Carson City no comment and no word on the Bundy vs BLM situation

death is nearDespite unsettling events in the Middle East, Las Vegas does not face new threats of terrorism, FBI Director James B. Comey said Tuesday during a brief visit here. “You are a city of the world,” Comey told reporters. “So you are the focus of attention by good people and bad people all over the world. I don’t see that having changed appreciably in the last few months.” Las Vegas has been considered a terrorist target since it was revealed that the al-Qaida hijackers of the 9/11 attacks in New York and Washington visited here before carrying out the attacks. But over the years, authorities have maintained that there have been no credible threats. Comey, in Las Vegas to meet with local FBI agents and top law enforcement officials, said counterterrorism remains the FBI’s No. 1 priority. “It’s a promise we made to the American people after 9/11 and one we work all day and every day to try to keep them safe from terrorist attack,” he said two days before the 13th anniversary of the attacks.pibe bomb The terrorist threat around the world is changing in two ways, said Comey, who has been at the helm of the FBI for a year. The world has seen the emergence of homegrown violent extremists who are inspired by the “poisonous propaganda” of al-Qaida and other high-profile terrorist groups, he said. Then, there are the smaller splinter groups emerging in the war-torn countries of Syria and Iraq that are attracting recruits from across the globe, including the United States, he said. “Everything I’m worried about touches Las Vegas,” Comey said. On another subject, the FBI director declined to discuss the criminal investigation of the April confrontation between law officers and Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy and his supporters. In May, Sheriff Doug Gillespie said the FBI was investigating allegations of threats and assaults on the law enforcement officers. The armed standoff occurred as the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, backed by federal court orders, startedseizing Bundy’s cattle over his failure to pay the agency about $1 million in grazing fees over two decades. Militia members flocked to Bundy’s aid. With each side pointing rifles and tensions reaching a critical level, federal land officials backed away and agreed to return Bundy’s cattle. The BLM said it halted the roundup for the safety of its agents and the public. Contact Jeff German at jgerman@reviewjournal.com or 702-380-8135.
Joe Biden: Gun Control Movement Needs Another High-Profile Victim

joe biden COA_0Saturday, October 11, 2014 On October 10 Vice President Joe Biden spoke at a memorial for the late Jim Brady and said the gun control movement needs another high-profile victim who is well-spoken in order to succeed. Check it out: Brady, who was President Ronald Reagan’s Press Secretary, was shot and wounded during the March 30, 1981 attempt on Reagan’s life. According to The Washington Times, Biden stressed that the push for more gun control is not over and said he prays a new voice for the gun control movement emerges soon: What we need is another Jim Brady, who has the skill and the ability to convince those who are afraid, who walks the halls of Congress, to step up and do what they know is right. One will come along. It will happen. I pray God it is sooner rather than later.

“The most perfect political community is one in which the middle class is in control, and outnumbers both of the other classes.” –Aristotle

Last night the League of Women Voters of Northern Nevada hosted a candidate forum at the Carson City Community Center. Despite some hiccups in coordinating prior information in the “Voters Guide,” the League did an admirable job in putting the forum together. Attendance was light (roughly 50 people showed) but the forum wasbroadcast live by Carson TV and is now posted on You Tube here.  The story in theNevada Appeal covers the high points, what follows is the rest of the story.

In the hot seats were Karen Abowd, (Ward 1), the challenger Lisa Helget, John McKenna (Ward 3), and his opponent Lori Bagwell. The presentation began with a four minute introductory pitch to address two topics: Why the candidate felt he or she was qualified for the job and the top three issues for Carson City the candidate would address.

Abowd led with an overview of her 20 years of experience as a business owner and emphasized her last four years on the board. As we’ve come to expect, she made much of the completion of the I-58- freeway as if Carson City will be cut off from civilization upon its completion stating she “recognizes the urgent need to promote, support, and retain our businesses..” and the need to “position Carson City as the drive to, not drive by, community.” It’s hard to keep the clichés straight as Abowd on one hand expressed desire to increase manufacturing and tech industries through “synergy,” while on the other hand flogging the need to improve the appearance of downtown. Her claim that “increasing the economic base” includes “expanding senior services, prioritizing and accomplishing capital improvements (which are expenditures), and exploring renewable energy opportunities at the landfill to increase the general fund” was just nonsensical. Abowd touted her first term as City Supervisor as occurring “during one of our worst historical downturns economically” then said fiscal responsibility was, is, and will have her attention. Perhaps she’s hoping no one really checks on her voting record which include a litany of rate and tax increases, large expenditures for non-governmental issues, while massively increasing City debt.

“If it was a baseball game, Robben 9, Carson DA 0″

Tordery Robben has prevailed again against the corrupt Carson City DA Neil Rombardo and his corrupt assistant Mark Krueger.

On Friday July 18, 2014 Ret. Reno Judge Charles McGee (who was assigned the cases since every Carson City judge was recused) issued an order that officially dismissed the previously dismissed false charges filed against Robben for allegedly libeling Corrupt Carson City Judge John Tatro and then solicitation the murder for the corrupt judge Tatro.

Robben also has prevailed in his appeal of the original breach-of-peace conviction that corrupt judge Tatro presided over untill he was eventually disqualified for accusing Robben of “shooting up Tatro’s front door with a .45″.

After Tatro was kicked off the case, corrupt Las Vegas judge Nancy C. Oesterle was assigned the case and completely disregard the law and facts of the case to cover-up for her corrupt pal, judge Tatro and convicting Robben to a record setting 60-days in jail for the breach-of-peace charge.

Judge McGee overturned that conviction and did reassign that appeal to the Carson City DA. However, McGee warned the DA that he has issued an “interlocutory” order reversing the conviction against Robben and if the DA pursues the matter, the DA risks malicious prosecution clams by Robben.

judge tatroRobben has filed a federal civil complaint in the matter and is in the process of amending the complaint and/or filing a new complaint to include all the false charges filed by Tatro and the Carson City Sheriff and DA including the recently dismissed libel, solicitation, stalking and intimidation charges.
John Tatro filed these changes as an individual not a judge, he has no immunity” says Robben.

Robben has also filed FBI complaints and also recently discovered his former lawyer William Routsis was working against him in the case.

“I protested William Routsis last week and he wigged out and tried to fight me” said Robben who plans on keeping up the protests against Routsis, Tatro, Krueger and others involved in this scandal. “I want them in prison” says Robben who has kept up the pressure as his website is close to a quarter million views this month.

“These scumbags are as bad or worse that child molesters” said Robben. In fact, Robben even has evidence to back up a claim that Judge Tatro was involved in child molestation.

“They tried to put me in prison to keep my voice silenced” said Robben who has exposed numerous facts related to scandals with corrupt judge Tatro, Sheriff Furlong, DA Rombardo and others.

The range of corruption includes Tatro having to breathalyze before taking the bench, sex with court workers and underage men, the shooter of Tatro’s home did in fact confess and the CCSO cover-up that to protect Tatro’s family. Robben also made DA Rombardo un-electable by exposing  Rombardo sexual affairs with employees and deputy DA’s in the Carson City offices.

“If it was a baseball game, Robben 9, Carson DA 0″ Says Robben.

“These scumbags need to be removed from office and charged with the crimes they committed. They also need to pay me back for the damage they created.” says Robben who said “They will pay one way or another”.

The Nevada Appeal ran the original story here:

nevada appeal storyCarson DA moves to reinstate charges against Ty Robben

The Carson City District Attorney’s office is moving to reinstate criminal charges against Ty Robben — including that he tried to solicit a hit man to kill Justice of the Peace John Tatro.

Two cases involving Robben were turned over to the Douglas County DA’s office after Senior District Judge Charles McGee in Reno disqualified the Carson DA’s office from handling them.

But two months after that ruling, McGee, of his own volition, entered an order saying he would reconsider that decision in light of an April opinion by the Nevada Supreme Court effectively reversing the precedent he relied on in disqualifying the DA. While McGee said he still has concerns, he would like to see the issue briefed and would consider reinstating the Carson DA’s office.

http://www.nevadaappeal.com/news/11178764-113/office-robben-charges-carson

But in between his first order and the second one, issued April 15, Douglas DA Mark Jackson dismissed the solicitation-to-commit-murder charge as well as the libel, stalking and harassment charges filed in the first case. He said in the dismissal notices that there wasn’t enough evidence to prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt.

Putting Carson City back in charge would allow the office to refile the charges against Robben, including solicitation to commit murder, a Category B felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

In the request for reappointment, Assistant DA Mark Krueger emphasized that the Carson DA’s office “reviews the evidence provided by law enforcement and charges only those crimes in which the Carson City District Attorney’s office believes occurred and can be proven at trial beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Krueger declined to comment on the filing, but the court document states that his office maintains “there has never been a conflict of interest” in the cases against Robben.

Robben, meanwhile, is taking his claims the office is unconstitutionally harassing him, violating his rights and covering up corruption in the Carson judicial system to the federal level. He said he will sue the DA’s office and Krueger in federal court and that he has already been interviewed by the FBI.

Robben’s troubles began when he was terminated from the Department of Taxation. His appeals of the termination were rejected at every level.

He got into legal trouble after an incident in which he said he was trying to serve papers on then-NDOT Director Susan Martinovich on behalf of another fired state worker. He became angered with Tatro after the judge convicted him in that case. His anger escalated, and his conduct resulted in the first batch of charges. He was in jail when he allegedly tried to get another prisoner to connect him with a hit man to murder the judge.

Robben was released from jail after the charges were dropped this month.

 

ty robben charges dismissedReno Judge Charles McGee reversed trumped-up “breach-of-peace” conviction for Ty Robben who attempted to serve a subpoena to former NDOT Director Susan Martinovich who clearly evaded service when she left the NDOT building through the back door and took a decoy car driven by NDOT employees to the Smith’s grocery store in Carson City, NV.

The order issued Wednesday July 09, 2014 also appears to render the Carson City District Attorney’s attempt to reinstate other dismissed charges including Libel, Intimidation and Stalking as well as Solicitation of MURDER against corrupt Carson City Judge John Tatro as moot.

The “contempt of court” conviction should also be rendered moot and reversed too since corrupt Judge Tatro’s order was illegal and void of any law or due process when Judge Tatro added conditions to Robben’s bail conditions with no hearing after a request by the Carson City Department of Alternative Sentencing (“DAS”) ordered Robben to wear a GPS device and then ordered Robben to be placed on “house arrest” with a “daily check-in” to the DAS office in Carson City from his home in South Lake Tahoe. The original order never included a “daily check-in” or “house arrest” according to Robben who has proof of the actual transcripts of the hearing conducted by corrupt Judge Tatro. Even the District Attorney Travis Lucia agreed in a written stipulation that Robben was not on house arrest or daily check-in.

susan martinovich hit and run coverup

susan martinovich hit and run coverup

Furthermore, the DAS never had jurisdiction over Robben who was a pre-trial defendant t the time. DAS only had jurisdiction over convicted “probationers” not “pre-trial defendants” according to the law under NRS 211A that governs DAS. The law was modified in July 2013 by Senate Bill 101 (“SB101″) to give DAS jurisdiction over pre-trial defendants, however Robben’s issues occurred in 2012.

This shows a clear pattern of abuse of power and acting under the color of law to carry out a personal vendetta against Robben and a cover-up of the hit-and-run by former NDOT Director Susan Martinovich.

Robben has a pending lawsuit in the Reno Federal Court related to this case and now he can show the “malicious prosecution” claim is valid since the conviction was reversed in Robben’s favor.

Robben has been very vocal about the rampant corruption in Nevada and especially Carson City where a corrupt Sheriff department, DA and Court system conspired and acted outside the law to harass Robben using the criminal justice system. Robben has performed numerious high profile protests in front of the State capitol and the Carson City court related to an array of issues including backdated court filings, withheld evidence, NHP corruption (editied dashcam video) the CCSO cover-up for Susan Martinovich’s hit-and-run and Judge Tatro, DA Neil Rombardoand ADA Mark Krueger’s corruption and abuse of office.

Las Vegas Review Journal - Tonja Brown "The Nolan Klein Story"

Nevada ranks number one in the Country for the most corrupt attorneys… We need to clean up the corruption within our judicial system and it starts with arresting and prosecuting the corrupt attorneys and judges!

Massive CRIME SCENE at Nevada attorney General Office in Carson City because of the rampant corruption in the CORRUPT Nevada Courts

Prosecutors have noticed an “alarming” number of lawyers convicted of serious crimes in federal court in the past several years.tatro corrupt

A total of 23 lawyers, mostly from Las Vegas, have been convicted since 2008, according to the Nevada U.S. attorney’s office.

Since 2011, the number of convictions have increased nearly five times over the previous three years, records show.

There were four convictions between 2008 and 2010, but 19 between 2011 and this year. Eight attorneys either pleaded guilty or were convicted by a jury in 2013 alone.

Dan Bogdenusdoj“In the last several years, the number of lawyers charged with federal crimes has increased dramatically,” U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden says.

“Although we cannot speculate as to the reason for the rise in numbers, we can say that it is embarrassing and sad when lawyers violate the very laws they have taken an oath to uphold.”

Bogden calls the growing rate of attorney prosecutions “alarming” in his 2013 annual report on the accomplishments of his office.

He isn’t alone in noticing the increase.crime

“There’s been a significant uptick,” says David Clark, the chief counsel for the State Bar of Nevada, which regulates lawyers. “It’s a combination of economic realities and the increased vigilance on the part of federal prosecutors to go after lawyers.”

Clark says attorneys have struggled in the failing economy just like everyone else and have been forced to look for other ways to make money, sometimes landing in legal and professional trouble.

Of the 23 convictions since 2008, a total of 19 involved financial crimes such as tax evasion, bank fraud and mortgage fraud, records show.

Bankruptcy attorney Randolph Goldberg pleaded guilty to tax evasion last year and is now serving a 1½-year sentence in federal prison. Defense lawyer and former prosecutor Paul Wommer, who was convicted by a jury of tax evasion last year, is serving a nearly 3½-year prison sentence. Both are temporarily suspended and can expect more disciplinary action from the State Bar when they get out of prison.

disbarredBusiness Woman Series 24Four Las Vegas attorneys — the late David Amesbury, Jeanne Winkler, Barry Levinson and Brian Jones — pleaded guilty to fraud charges in the federal investigation into the massive takeover of Las Vegas-area homeowners associations.

Amesbury killed himself weeks after he pleaded guilty, and the other three lawyers are cooperating with prosecutors and waiting to be sentenced.

Another attorney, Keith Gregory, is to stand trial in October in the HOA case, and one key target, attorney Nancy Quon, committed suicide before federal authorities could charge her.

Winkler was disbarred in 2011 for stealing money from her clients, and Levinson agreed to disbarment as part of the plea deal he struck with federal prosecutors earlier this year. He is currently suspended from practicing law.

kolo news coverage part 1

Other well-known lawyers have run afoul of the law:

■ Harvey Whittemore, a onetime political power broker, was convicted last year of unlawfully funneling more than $133,000 to the campaign of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat. He was sentenced to two years in prison and must surrender in August. Whittemore is temporarily suspended from practicing law while the State Bar considers further action.

■ Noel Gage, who specialized in personal injury cases, pleaded guilty in 2010 to obstruction of justice in a federal investigation into an alleged fraud scheme involving a network of lawyers and physicians. He was sentenced to three years probation. Gage is off probation and his law license is temporarily suspended until the end of July. He must apply for reinstatement.

■ Lawrence Davidson, caught up in a political corruption probe a dozen years ago, pleaded guilty to mail fraud, money laundering and several other charges, including those related to his unlawful flight to Israel in 2006 to avoid standing trial. Davidson agreed to disbarment in 2005 after he was originally charged. He eventually returned to Las Vegas and was sentenced in 2012 to eight years in prison.

■ Gerry Zobrist, once a part-time Las Vegas justice of the peace, pleaded guilty last year to conspiracy to commit bank fraud and wire fraud in a multimillion-dollar scheme to use straw buyers to unlawfully purchase homes in the valley. He was sentenced to seven years in federal prison. His law license has been suspended pending further disciplinary action.

nv judicial ethics

REASON FOR THE RISE

drunk lawyerThomas Pitaro, a respected criminal defense lawyer who has been practicing in Las Vegas for 40 years, says the stress of the legal profession likely has contributed to the rise in criminal prosecutions of attorneys.coke

“I think there are very few attorneys who steal for the hell of it,” Pitaro says. “It’s systematic of other problems — drugs, alcohol, gambling and living above their means.”

Pitaro also believes federal authorities are spending more time investigating white collar and financial crimes that have a higher probability of involving lawyers and other professionals.

Clark says his organization has stepped up its own vigilance of lawyers in recent years and has been working closely with law enforcement authorities.

“We’ve been sharing more information and developing more contacts with law enforcement,” he explains.

Clark points to the Levinson case as a prime example of the State Bar’s strong working relationship with police and federal authorities.

At one point, Las Vegas police, federal authorities and the State Bar all were working cases against Levinson at the same time, Clark says.

culture-of-corruption

In his federal deal, Levinson not only pleaded guilty in the HOA fraud case, but he also pleaded guilty to tax evasion and embezzling more than $243,000 from his clients. His deal calls for him to receive no less than two years in prison. Any time behind bars he gets in state court on theft charges will run concurrently with his federal sentence.

Levinson’s willingness to agree to disbarment in his federal plea was a first for prosecutors and the State Bar. Goldberg last year agreed to a two-year suspension in his federal plea agreement.

“It shows the evolution of our cooperation with law enforcement authorities,” Clark says.

NEVADA STATE BAR DISCIPLINE

Something else that is evolving is the State Bar’s approach to disciplining lawyers.

bad lawyers nevadaA Nevada Supreme Court rule says the State Bar can move to temporarily suspend a lawyer upon a “final judgment of conviction,” and the bar has waited over the years until a lawyer is sentenced. That’s when the federal courts, which see most of the criminal cases, recognize a final judgment of conviction.

But two criminal cases against lawyers, one in Clark County District Court and another in federal court, has Clark looking for temporary suspensions before sentencing.

The District Court case is against defense attorney Brian Bloomfield, who pleaded guilty in December to felony charges stemming from a fraud investigation into a sweeping courthouse counseling scheme. Bloomfield has continued to represent clients in court the past six months while waiting to be sentenced.

The federal case involves Brian Jones, who pleaded guilty in the HOA case more than two years ago and is also waiting to be sentenced. Jones has since moved to Utah and is not practicing law in Las Vegas, but his license remains active.how-our-courts-are-used-by-criminals

Last month Clark filed a petition with the state Supreme Court seeking a temporary suspension for Bloomfield while the State Bar prepares to file a complaint against him that could lead to his disbarment.

The State Bar counsel filed a similar petition last week to get Jones temporarily suspended.

Clark is hoping the Supreme Court will more clearly define the broad rule, which also allows the State Bar to seek a suspension after a guilty plea or jury conviction.

“In the past this hasn’t been so much of a problem because there hasn’t been a long disconnect between a guilty plea and a sentencing,” Clark recently said. “But lately, we’ve been seeing a greater delay.”

FBI Color of Law Abuses

Gavel

U.S. law enforcement officers and other officials like judges, prosecutors, and security guards have been given tremendous power by local, state, and federal government agencies—authority they must have to enforce the law and ensure justice in our country. These powers include the authority to detain and arrest suspects, to search and seize property, to bring criminal charges, to make rulings in court, and to use deadly force in certain situations.

Preventing abuse of this authority, however, is equally necessary to the health of our nation’s democracy. That’s why it’s a federal crime for anyone acting under “color of law” willfully to deprive or conspire to deprive a person of a right protected by the Constitution or U.S. law. “Color of law” simply means that the person is using authority given to him or her by a local, state, or federal government agency.

The FBI is the lead federal agency for investigating color of law abuses, which include acts carried out by government officials operating both within and beyond the limits of their lawful authority. Off-duty conduct may be covered if the perpetrator asserted his or her official status in some way.

During 2012, 42 percent of the FBI’s total civil rights caseload involved color of law issues—there were 380 color of law cases opened during the year. Most of the cases involved crimes that fell into into five broad areas:

  • Excessive force;
  • Sexual assaults;
  • False arrest and fabrication of evidence;
  • Deprivation of property; and
  • Failure to keep from harm.

Excessive force: In making arrests, maintaining order, and defending life, law enforcement officers are allowed to use whatever force is “reasonably” necessary. The breadth and scope of the use of force is vast—from just the physical presence of the officer…to the use of deadly force. Violations of federal law occur when it can be shown that the force used was willfully “unreasonable” or “excessive.”

Sexual assaults by officials acting under color of law can happen in jails, during traffic stops, or in other settings where officials might use their position of authority to coerce an individual into sexual compliance. The compliance is generally gained because of a threat of an official action against the person if he or she doesn’t comply.

False arrest and fabrication of evidence: The Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right against unreasonable searches or seizures. A law enforcement official using authority provided under the color of law is allowed to stop individuals and, under certain circumstances, to search them and retain their property. It is in the abuse of that discretionary power—such as an unlawful detention or illegal confiscation of property—that a violation of a person’s civil rights may occur.

Fabricating evidence against or falsely arresting an individual also violates the color of law statute, taking away the person’s rights of due process and unreasonable seizure. In the case of deprivation of property, the color of law statute would be violated by unlawfully obtaining or maintaining a person’s property, which oversteps or misapplies the official’s authority.

The Fourteenth Amendment secures the right to due process; the Eighth Amendment prohibits the use of cruel and unusual punishment. During an arrest or detention, these rights can be violated by the use of force amounting to punishment (summary judgment). The person accused of a crime must be allowed the opportunity to have a trial and should not be subjected to punishment without having been afforded the opportunity of the legal process.

Failure to keep from harm: The public counts on its law enforcement officials to protect local communities. If it’s shown that an official willfully failed to keep an individual from harm, that official could be in violation of the color of law statute.

Filing a Complaint

To file a color of law complaint, contact your local FBI office by telephone, in writing, or in person. The following information should be provided:

  • All identifying information for the victim(s);
  • As much identifying information as possible for the subject(s), including position, rank, and agency employed;
  • Date and time of incident;
  • Location of incident;
  • Names, addresses, and telephone numbers of any witness(es);
  • A complete chronology of events; and
  • Any report numbers and charges with respect to the incident.

You may also contact the United States Attorney’s Office in your district or send a written complaint to:

Assistant Attorney General
Civil Rights Division
Criminal Section
950 Pennsylvania Avenue, Northwest
Washington, DC 20530

FBI investigations vary in length. Once our investigation is complete, we forward the findings to the U.S. Attorney’s Office within the local jurisdiction and to the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., which decide whether or not to proceed toward prosecution and handle any prosecutions that follow.

Civil Applications

Title 42, U.S.C., Section 14141 makes it unlawful for state or local law enforcement agencies to allow officers to engage in a pattern or practice of conduct that deprives persons of rights protected by the Constitution or U.S. laws. This law, commonly referred to as the Police Misconduct Statute, gives the Department of Justice authority to seek civil remedies in cases where law enforcement agencies have policies or practices that foster a pattern of misconduct by employees. This action is directed against an agency, not against individual officers. The types of issues which may initiate a pattern and practice investigation include:

  • Lack of supervision/monitoring of officers’ actions;
  • Lack of justification or reporting by officers on incidents involving the use of force;
  • Lack of, or improper training of, officers; and
  • Citizen complaint processes that treat complainants as adversaries.

Under Title 42, U.S.C., Section 1997, the Department of Justice has the ability to initiate civil actions against mental hospitals, retardation facilities, jails, prisons, nursing homes, and juvenile detention facilities when there are allegations of systemic derivations of the constitutional rights of institutionalized persons.

Report Civil Rights Violations

Resources

The various Judges(Judge Harold “Hal” G. Albright, Judge Charles McGee and Federal Judge Miranda Du)  involved in the various legal proceedings involving Ty Robben and the Carson City DA Neil Rombardo, Mark Krueger and Judge Tatro have a mandatory duty by law under the Nevada Judaical Code of Conduct and canons to report John Tatro, Neil Rombardo and Mark Krueger to the appropriate authorities. In this case that would be the FBI, the State Bar and the Commission on Judicial Discipline.

Nevada Judaical Code of Conduct:

Rule 2.14.  Disability and Impairment.  A judge having a reasonable belief that the performance of a lawyer or another judge is impaired by drugs or alcohol, or by a mental, emotional, or physical condition, shall take appropriate action, which may include a confidential referral to a lawyer or judicial assistance program.

COMMENT

      [1] “Appropriate action” means action intended and reasonably likely to help the judge or lawyer in question address the problem and prevent harm to the justice system. Depending upon the circumstances, appropriate action may include but is not limited to speaking directly to the impaired person, notifying an individual with supervisory responsibility over the impaired person, or making a referral to an assistance program.

      [2] Taking or initiating corrective action by way of referral to an assistance program may satisfy a judge’s responsibility under this Rule. Assistance programs have many approaches for offering help to impaired judges and lawyers, such as intervention, counseling, or referral to appropriate health care professionals. Depending upon the gravity of the conduct that has come to the judge’s attention, however, the judge may be required to take other action, such as reporting the impaired judge or lawyer to the appropriate authority, agency, or body. See Rule 2.15.

      Rule 2.15.  Responding to Judicial and Lawyer Misconduct.

      (A) A judge having knowledge that another judge has committed a violation of this Code that raises a substantial question regarding the judge’s honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness as a judge in other respects shall inform the appropriate authority.

      (B) A judge having knowledge that a lawyer has committed a violation of the Nevada Rules of Professional Conduct that raises a substantial question regarding the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness as a lawyer in other respects shall inform the appropriate authority.

      (C) A judge who receives information indicating a substantial likelihood that another judge has committed a violation of this Code shall take appropriate action.

      (D) A judge who receives information indicating a substantial likelihood that a lawyer has committed a violation of the Nevada Rules of Professional Conduct shall take appropriate action.

COMMENT

      [1] Taking action to address known misconduct is a judge’s obligation. Paragraphs (A) and (B) impose an obligation on the judge to report to the appropriate disciplinary authority the known misconduct of another judge or a lawyer that raises a substantial question regarding the honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness of that judge or lawyer. Ignoring or denying known misconduct among one’s judicial colleagues or members of the legal profession undermines a judge’s responsibility to participate in efforts to ensure public respect for the justice system. This Rule limits the reporting obligation to those offenses that an independent judiciary must vigorously endeavor to prevent.

      [2] A judge who does not have actual knowledge that another judge or a lawyer may have committed misconduct but receives information indicating a substantial likelihood of such misconduct, is required to take appropriate action under paragraphs (C) and (D). Appropriate action may include, but is not limited to, communicating directly with the judge who may have violated this Code, communicating with a supervising judge, or reporting the suspected violation to the appropriate authority or other agency or body. Similarly, actions to be taken in response to information indicating that a lawyer has committed a violation of the Nevada Rules of Professional Conduct may include but are not limited to communicating directly with the lawyer who may have committed the violation or reporting the suspected violation to the appropriate authority or other agency or body.

      Rule 2.16.  Cooperation With Disciplinary Authorities.

      (A) A judge shall cooperate and be candid and honest with judicial and lawyer disciplinary agencies.

      (B) A judge shall not retaliate, directly or indirectly, against a person known or suspected to have assisted or cooperated with an investigation of a judge or a lawyer.

COMMENT

      [1] Cooperation with investigations and proceedings of judicial and lawyer discipline agencies, as required in paragraph (A), instills confidence in judges’ commitment to the integrity of the judicial system and the protection of the public.

      [Added; effective January 19, 2010.]

judge tatro scandals

This corrupt “judge” gets exposed here: http://judgetatroscandals.wordpress.com

  • Judge John Tatro, like former Judge Robey Willis, is an alcoholic who must take a breathalyzer before he gets on the bench.
  • Judge Tatro had a breathalyzer installed in has car to prevent him from driving drunk.
  • Many people report seeing the “judge” on the bench appearing to be drunk and under the influence of drugs.
  • :Judge: Tatro has no legal training or law degree – see his bio below.
  • Judge Tatro is mentally unstable according to numerous lawyers who deal with his outbursts every day
  • Judge Tatro had an affair with a court clerk who’s son shot his door in December 2012.
  • Judge Tatro lies and tried to send Ty Robben to prison by filing false charges against him. Tatro must, by law, be charged for filing a false criminal report that led to the arrest and incarceration of Ty Robben. Tatro committed a felony and MUST pay the price for his action and MUST be removed from the bench “permanently”. all charges were dismissed against Robben because what he reported was in fact true!
  • Witnesses have reported Tatro has also paid for sex with a young man under age 18. This constitute “child molestation” – Tatro is a child molester.
  • The CCSO even has the secretly recorded jail cell recording to backup Robben’s claims of Tatro’s “ChoMo” story from source.
  • Witnesses have reported Tatro buys and uses cocaine. This is believable since the person reporting the coke use is very close to Tatro’s former wife\girlfriend.

Robben can back up his claims that Tatro is in fact the scumbag that he is.

A new book, “The Progeny: Justice William J. Brennan’s Fight to Preserve the Legacy of New York Times v. Sullivan,” tells the story of the late justice’s struggle to persuade a unanimous court to embrace the First Amendment doctrine established in this landmark case on freedom of the press.

Lucy Dalglish, dean of the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland, will talk with co-authors Lee Levine and Stephen Wermiel about the book, which draws from Brennan’s previously unreported papers and interviews with Wermiel. The book explores the collegial and sometimes contentious exchanges between justices of the Supreme Court as well as the line of 31 cases that deal with defamation and privacy aspects of First Amendment law decided since Sullivan was announced on March 9, 1964.

Carson DA moves to reinstate charges against Ty Robben

Taxpayer money spent on RETALATION

Taxpayer money spent on RETALIATION

By Geoff Dornan

The Carson City District Attorney’s office is moving to reinstate criminal charges against Ty Robben — including that he tried to solicit a hit man to kill Justice of the Peace John Tatro.

Two cases involving Robben were turned over to the Douglas County DA’s office after Senior District Judge Charles McGee in Reno disqualified the Carson DA’s office from handling them.

But two months after that ruling, McGee, of his own volition, entered an order saying he would reconsider that decision in light of an April opinion by the Nevada Supreme Court effectively reversing the precedent he relied on in disqualifying the DA. While McGee said he still has concerns, he would like to see the issue briefed and would consider reinstating the Carson DA’s office.

But in between his first order and the second one, issued April 15, Douglas DA Mark Jackson dismissed the solicitation-to-commit-murder charge as well as the libel, stalking and harassment charges filed in the first case. He said in the dismissal notices that there wasn’t enough evidence to prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt.

Putting Carson City back in charge would allow the office to refile the charges against Robben, including solicitation to commit murder, a Category B felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

In the request for reappointment, Assistant DA Mark Krueger emphasized that the Carson DA’s office “reviews the evidence provided by law enforcement and charges only those crimes in which the Carson City District Attorney’s office believes occurred and can be proven at trial beyond a reasonable doubt.”

However the Douglas DA Mark Jackson dismissed all 6 charges and counts due to lack of probable cause, the lower standard and the highest standard beyond a reasonable doubt.

Those charges included 3 felonies, gross misdemeanors and the most serious class B felony of solicitation of murder on a judge.

The libel charged was dismissed because what Robben said was in fact, true.

Robben reported on his website that Carson City resident Levi Minor admitted to shooting Judge Tatro’s frond door in December 2012.

Robben reported the motive was that Minor’s mother, who also worked at the courthouse,  had an affair with Judge Tatro.

Robben confirmed that Minor told him this in person when he was in custody in the Carson City jail.

Robben also reported on the alleged breathalyzer test requirements for Judge Tatro before he takes the bench and related DUIs.

Judge Tatro also was offended when Roben made him look like the joker.

JUDGE TATRO JOKERjudge john tatro team

The bottom line and the facts are Robben did  not solicited murder on Judge Tatro, instead it was the other way around when Robben’s cell-mate (cellie) named Keith Furr attempted to solicit Robben. Robben informed his lawyers and the FBI about the situation prior to being charged. Robben could not report the incident to the Carson City Sheriff (CCSO) since they were the one setting him up. The CCSO would not respond to Robben’s inmate request forms and stole his legal papers. The CCSO still has Robben’s computers after the Douglas County DA has released the property.

The CCSO alleges Furr wore a “wire” to secretly record Robben in his cell conspiring with Furr to hire a hit man for a “roofing job”. The recording show Furr solicited Robben and Robben declined. Robben has recording to his lawyers on the phone telling them to contact the FBI immediately because the CCSO is covering up the Tatro shooting incident and they are setting me up with a guy selling me a hit man to kill Judge Tatro. Why would Robben be calling the FBI if he was going to have a hit man kill the judge?

hit man contract out for Judge TatroHowever, Furr later admitted to other inmates in jail he did not were a wire and instead the CCSO secretly surreptitiously listened to the conversations in the cell via the intercom system normally used for emergencies. The CCSO coerced Furr into saying he wore a wire and fabricated a header on the digital audio to make it appear Furr wore a wire. The audio was illegally edited which is tampering of evidence. jp tatro ruthless and toothless

The CCSO and DA needed Furr to allege he wore a wire in order for the evidence to be admissible in court. However, by fabricating the evidence and witness testimony, the CCSO and DA have actually committed crimes against Robben. Robben also said the CCSO listened to all his phone calls which is legal, however the CCSO also listened in on all his attorney conversations in the visiting area via the intercom system just like they did in his cell 24 hours a day. Everything was digitally recorded and mined for anything that could be used against Robben. Inmates are not entitled to privacy in jail, however the secretly surreptitiously recorded data would test the law and show how far the CCSO and Carson City DA went to set up Robben.

Kenny FurlongThe CCSO, DA and Sr. Judge Harold “Hal” Albright  (presiding over the cases due to conflict of interests with all Carson Judges and Justice of Peace including JP Tatro and JP Armstrong) dismissed all pending charges against Furr in order to coerce Furr to testify against Robben, however the audio shows Furr doing the solicitation.  Keith Furr has a long criminal record and is currently in jail in Lyon County for serious charges including arson.

Lyon Deputies Arrest Dayton Man Wanted on Several Charges

Keith Wayne Furr of Dayton

Lyon County deputies have arrested a man they say was wanted on drug and stolen property property charges.

Deputies had been searching for 51-year-old Keith Wayne Furr of Dayton all weekend after receiving a felon warrant for possessing stolen property.

Around 9:45pm Sunday, they received a tip Furr was spotted at his trailer located in the 1000 block of Highway 50. When deputies arrived, they found Furr packing personal belongings into a vehicle. They say when he saw them, he ran away, and after losing him for a brief time, they found running east along Highway 50.

Furr was eventually arrested after a brief struggle.

During the investigation, deputies say an associate of Furr — 43-year-old Melanie Sandomierski of Dayton — was also arrested for harboring a fugitive for possession of a controlled substance.

Furr is charged with principle to possession of stolen property, resisting arrest, criminal contempt (Carson City Justice Court Warrant), possession of drug paraphernalia and violation of extended protection order.

Furr’s bail is set at $15,920 while Sandomierski’s bail is set at $12,500.

Carson City sheriff’s officers make numerous drug, misdemeanor arrests over weekend

Two men were arrested Sept. 27 and face felony drug charges after Carson City Sheriff’s Special Enforcement Team officers found methamphetamine in a console of a van. Both men denied the meth was theirs.

Keith Wayne Furr, 51, and William Dale French, 42, of Dayton were arrested in the 4900 block of Highway 50 East at 5:28 p.m.

According to the arrest report, an officer was patrolling eastbound Highway 50 near Sunrise Road when he noticed a Chevy van with an expired California plate traveling westbound. The officer followed the van to a mobile home park where it drove into a space. The men got out of the vehicle and went around to the back of a mobile home. The men were given instructions to stop what they were doing and put up their hands, which they didn’t do, each rummaging through their pockets, according to the arrest report.

judge Nancy Oesterle is corrupt as hell

French told officers that he was a passenger in the van and was just getting a ride. He stated that Furr saw the officer on Highway 50 and stated he knew it was a cop. French told officers that Furr was nervous and drove quickly into the mobile home park. He said they didn’t know anyone who lived in the mobile home park.

A K9 did a drug sniff of the yard of the mobile home park where the dog located a small amount of marijuana along with some cash near a grill. French was asked about the marijuana and he stated it was Furr’s and he is the one who hid it. Officers spoke with Furr who stated that French was the one with the marijuana and was hid it. Furr also stated he knew the officers who stopped him were part of the SET team from the sheriff’s office when he was driving on Highway 50, according to the arrest report.

Department of Alternative Sentencing assisted with the investigation as it was learned that Furr was on a list that allowed for searches. The K9 conducted the search of the van. In the van a hypodermic device was found along with a small amount of methamphetamine and another open bottle of alcohol in the middle console of the van, within reach of both men, the arrest report states.

Officers again asked both about the meth and hypodermic device. Furr said it belonged to French and French said it belonged to Furr, the arrest report states.

Officers then learned that the rear plate of the van had a valid 2014 registration sticker however the registration was expired as of 2010, according to California DMV. The plate was taken for evidence and later booked at the sheriff’s office for fictitious registration. Dispatched advised Furr did not have a valid license in Nevada or California.

Both men were booked. Furr faces the following charges: felony possession of methamphetamine, gross misdemeanor destruction of evidence. Misdemeanors include possession of marijuana, no valid driver’s license, expired registration, no proof of insurance, possession of a hypodermic device, violation of conditions, open container and fictitious registration. Bail: $11,179. French faces a felony charge of possession of methamphetamine and a gross misdemeanor charge of destruction of evidence. He also faces the following misdemeanor charges: Possession of marijuana, possession of a hypodermic device and open container. Bail: $6,874.

Carson City Sheriff’s Office report details initial arrest that led to recovery of 60 stolen weapons

More details have emerged following the arrest Friday of a Dayton man that led to Carson City and Lyon County authorities to recover approximately 60 stolen weapons, a stolen vehicle and narcotics. Three others were also arrested.

Keith Furr, 52, was arrested on charges of being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm, contempt of court and criminal contempt and is being held in Carson City with a bail of $23,500.

According to the arrest report, deputies were dispatched Friday at around 3 p.m. to the area of Clearview Drive and South Edmonds after a person called dispatch to advise there was a vehicle stuck on top of the next to Prison Hill.

When they were approximately 100 meters from the vehicle they observed Furr carrying a short-barrel AR-15 and a white metal carrying case.

When they were approximately 100 meters from the vehicle they observed Furr carrying a short-barrel AR-15 and a white metal carrying case.

When they were approximately 100 meters from the vehicle they observed Furr carrying a short-barrel AR-15 and a white metal carrying case.

The man immediately attempted to walk past the officers and appeared nervous, making movements like he was about to run from the officers, the arrest report states.

The officers asked the man who the gun belonged to and Furr said a man that he did not know handed the weapon and a case to him and told him to carry it to the top of the hill. Furr stated the man would meet him shortly thereafter, the arrest report states.

Deputy Kepler walked to the vehicle and checked the license plate through dispatch and advised the plate came back to a subject in Lyon County and then walked back to speak with Furr. As the officer returned, Sgt. Humphrey informed the deputies that Furr was a felon. Furr also admitted to this, the arrest report states. Deputy Kepler and Trotter took the man into custody at 5:12 p.m. for being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm.

Dispatch advised Furr was on alternative sentencing, which then placed a hold on Furr for violation of conditions of probation and violation of a court monitored sentence.

Through the combined efforts Carson City Sheriff’s Office and Lyon County Sheriff’s Office, four people were arrested for felony and misdemeanor charges and parole violations. During the investigation approximately 60 stolen weapons, a stolen Chevy pickup with a camper shell and illegal narcotics were recovered, authorities from both agencies said.

Both Carson City Sheriff’s Office SET and Lyon County Gang Unit are still following up on leads to other crimes and suspects as a result of the arrests. Because of the investigation and leads into the case, the names of the three other suspects have not been released.

Krueger declined to comment on the filing, but the court document states that his office maintains “there has never been a conflict of interest” in the cases against Robben.

Robben, meanwhile, is taking his claims the office is unconstitutionally harassing him, violating his rights and covering up corruption in the Carson judicial system to the federal level.

He said he will sue the DA’s office and Krueger in federal court and that he has already been interviewed by the FBI.

See Robben’s website here:

Robben’s troubles began when he was terminated from the Department of Taxation. His appeals of the termination were rejected at every level.

Robben claims the termination was retaliation for exposing corruption in the Nevada Department of Taxation. The Las Vegas Review Journal newspaper did a story on Robben’s claims that the new $50 million dollar computer IT system had serious problems costing the State money. Robben also complained about other issues including the mine audits and personnel issues with other employees engaging in inappropriate behavior. Robben’s co-worker Morgan Canfield send numerous pornographic emails to other employees over the State email system and IT director Vince Cherpeski used inappropriate language and discriminated against employees. A Taxation employee other than Robben was so upset with Cherpeski they defecated on his desk!

Taxation Department losing tens of millions of dollars a year, ex-employees say

CARSON CITY — The state is losing tens of millions of dollars a year in tax revenue because of an inefficient computer system that prevents department auditors from reviewing the tax records of companies in a timely manner, according to two former Nevada Taxation Department employees.

Dino DiCianno explains everything

They place the blame primarily on a computer system that, while not antiquated, is slower and not user friendly, saying that a new system is needed.

The department’s annual report, released Jan. 15, shows 1.24 percent of businesses in the state were audited during the past fiscal year, almost half the total in the 2006-07 year, just before a new $40 million tax accounting system went online.

They also said that mismanagement by former Taxation Director Dino DiCianno has contributed to the department’s inability to perform more audits and that he deliberately stopped audits of the mining industry. DiCianno closed the agency’s Elko office in June 2010 as part of a cost-cutting plan by former Gov. Jim Gibbons, though the mining industry was booming and the auditor there could have recovered millions in unpaid mining taxes, they said.

DiCianno, who did not return a phone call seeking comments Tuesday, abruptly retired from state government in March, a day after telling legislators that mining companies had not been audited for two years because he lacked qualified auditors to check their records.

Taxation Department executives told legislators that the mining industry operated on a “self-reporting” tax system.

After DiCianno’s departure, new Gov. Brian Sandoval required the department to undertake mining industry audits.

That work produced $1.2 million in additional revenue from audits in the fiscal year that ended June 30, although the employees said much more could have been secured except for a three-year statute of limitations on unpaid taxes.

Still the employees and their union representative said far more revenue could be secured if the number of audits returned to the total of past years.

“It is our members’ assertion the total number of audits is down because of the computer and software system,” said Vishnu Subramaniam, executive director of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 4041. “Individuals have to pay their fair share of taxes. We should expect the same from Nevada businesses.”

Although no one was critical of his performance, new Taxation Director William Chisel did not return three messages left by the Review-Journal on his office phone over the past week and a half.

Sandoval, however, expressed support Tuesday for Chisel, adding it is the director’s plan to concentrate audits on companies where the returns can be greater.

“I will have a conversation with the director,” Sandoval said. “Mr. Chisel’s background is as an auditor. They are developing systems to go after the higher returning entities.”

Subramaniam arranged for the two former Taxation Department employees to speak with a Review-Journal reporter. They both requested anonymity.

One is still employed in state government. He said he told legislators before the meeting in March that DiCianno was not having the department audit mining companies.

He said he previously worked for a mining company and is proficient in auditing their records. Instead, he was assigned to audit businesses where the return for the state was far less.

This employee said no net proceeds of minerals audits were performed for 10 years.

“We did sales tax audits. We did business tax audits. We did everything but net proceeds of minerals,” he said. “I was stifled by Dino (DiCianno).”

The other source, who said he is familiar with the computer system, said, “It wasn’t right from the beginning. It has been completely dysfunctional.”

The system will not even properly add up numbers, he said.

As an example, he said the system software would show a 990 answer for adding up a group of numbers with an actual sum of 1,000. Replacing it with a new system would cost $100 million, he added.

Auditors for the Taxation Department do not need accounting degrees but can take a couple of night courses to qualify for the job, according to the former taxation auditor. He said pay is too low to attract highly qualified people.

According to the state Personnel Division, tax auditors are paid $39,108 to $69,029 a year, depending on their experience.

A person with a high school degree with previous auditing experience who has completed six credit hours of college accounting classes can be an auditor.

“I would always collect or recover five times or more what I earn,” he said. “The jobs pay for themselves.”

The annual report shows salary expenditures by the Taxation Department increased by about $450,000 to slightly more than $20 million a year in the past fiscal year.

Subramaniam said Sandoval needs to take the leadership to ensure the Taxation Department does more audits and businesses know they are being watched so they will pay their taxes, but with a 1.24 percent audit rate, businesses realize they can fudge their taxes with impunity.

“The least we could be doing is to ensure that Nevada businesses are paying their fair share in taxes — that they are paying what they’re supposed to be paying,” Subramaniam said.

Nevada crime scene

Nevada crime scene

In 2012, Ty Robben, a Nevada citizen, led lawful and peaceful protests against corruption in Nevada’s Attorney General’s Office and judiciary. After several high profile demonstrations – with the “World’s Largest Crime Scene Banner” at 4 ft tall x 150 ft long on display – in front of the AG’s Office and the courthouse spurred significant media coverage, he was arrested on a trumped up misdemeanor assault charge. He spent a total of 22 days in jail – eight in solitary confinement – and nearly another month under house arrest with an ankle monitor. The judge who signed the arrest warrant was Judge John Tatro, the same judge who Ty had attempted to disqualify from his civil case due to judicial bias.  The assault charge was eventually dropped.
In December 2012, Judge Tatro woke up to the sound of gunfire at his home around 4:30 am. Two shots entered the front door, passed through the living room, and exited through a sliding glass door. Ty Robben was questioned and immediately cleared. There has been no reported arrest to date but the police reviewed the judge’s court calendar in search of suspects. This incident followed the highly publicized June 2006 shooting of Judge Chuck Weller. Judge Weller was shot in the chest through the window of his third-floor courthouse office in Reno, Nevada, by a sniper in the parking garage across the street. The sniper, Darren Mack, had appeared before Judge Weller in Mack’s divorce case. Both Judge Tatro and Judge Weller had less than stellar reputations for rendering honest decisions in cases that came before them.

In previous chapters I’ve cited some examples of the questionable actions of judicial officers I encountered and hinted at the impropriety of other judges and of the entire judicial system in which they function. It would be beneficial for you, the reader, to have an in-depth overview of the State of Nevada judicial system – aside from my specific case. It will provide the proper backdrop for what I was up against in my encounter with Nevada justice and will bring the blatant incompetence and corruption of the judges and courts in Nevada into proper perspective. The Ty Robben’s story is stunning, disturbing, and incomprehensible. It is also demonstrative of the lawlessness that exists in the state of Nevada, where the most fundamental constitutional rights are not recognized. In preparing for this and the next chapter, I have referenced the reports of reputable news reporters and the reports of legal experts and opinion makers all of which have been made public through the print and online media. The documented behavior of several Nevada judges during the course of their careers is relevant when assessing the Nevada judicial system as a whole. I was unfortunate enough to have my own personal experience with one of the judges highlighted in these reports.

In an extensive three-part series published in the Los Angeles Times in June 2006, entitled “JUICE VS. JUSTICE | A Times Investigation: In Las Vegas, They’re Playing with a Stacked Judicial Deck,” Los Angeles Times reporters Michael J. Goodman and William C. Rempel wrote in great detail about the questionable, even illegal, behavior of a number of Nevada judges. If the title wasn’t enough to draw a picture for their readers, the reporters included this provocative statement as a subtitle:

Some judges routinely rule in cases involving friends, former clients and business associates – and in favor of lawyers who fill their campaign coffers.

A sad image that appears to sum up the grief felt across Canada over the killing of Candian reservist, Nathan Cirillo.

Cpl Cirillo, who served in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, had been guarding the Canadian Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at a remembrance service before being shot dead by gunman Michael Zehaf-Bibeau.

The 24-year-old reservist was known to be devoted to his dogs, with friends talking of him recently finding an emaciated and abandoned puppy who he nursed back to health before re-homing it.

Speaking about the now healthy puppy only four weeks ago, he said: ‘Found him a pretty home, hope he has a good life.’

As the images show, Cirillo’s kindness and devotion was reciprocated by his two dogs.

Count your blessings, New Yorkers; you’re danged lucky that Dr. Craig Spencer is a board-certified specialist. Otherwise he might not have known how to run around your city without infecting cabbies, subway commuters and Brooklyn bowling enthusiasts.

And we never really had Ebola in the U.S. before Barack Obama, so it’s good we have him now to show us how to contain it.

So, lucky about that.

So how’s it feel…

CDC whistleblower: also a player in the vaccine-mercury-autism fraud

By Jon Rappoport
October 24, 2014
http://ift.tt/KQeBZA

Anyone who’s awake knows by now that William Thompson, CDC scientist and whistleblower, has admitted egregious fraud.

He and his colleagues, in a famous 2004 study, gave the MMR vaccine a free pass and pretended it had no connection to autism?when it did.

Here is another study on which Thompson was a co-author: “Thimerosal [mercury] exposure [from vaccines] in early life and neuropsychological outcomes 7-10 years later.” (J Pediatr Psychol, Jan-Feb 2012)

Obviously, this is a key piece of research, because a) mercury is known potent neurotoxin; b) parents of autistic children have been, for many years, telling anyone who would listen that their kids withdrew from the world after receiving a shot containing mercury; and c) the US government has been claiming, over and over, that mercury in vaccines has absolutely no…

James William Henry’s defense attorney, Louis Schneider, said outside court Friday he thinks it’s possible that someone else uploaded pictures that led the search engine to alert the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

The center forwarded information to Las Vegas police.

Henry made an initial court appearance on 20 child pornography possession and distribution charges that could put him prison for decades.

He was suspended without pay following his arrest Thursday, and is being held without bail at the Clark County jail.

Schneider says he’ll ask a Las Vegas judge on Monday to set bail so Henry can be freed pending resolution of the case.

(Reuters) – An Alabama man who sued over being hit and kicked by police after leading them on a high-speed chase will get $1,000 in a settlement with the city of Birmingham, while his attorneys will take in $459,000, officials said Wednesday.

The incident gained public attention with the release of a 2008 video of police officers punching and kicking Anthony Warren as he lay on the ground after leading them on a roughly 20-minute high-speed chase.

Warren is serving a 20-year sentence for attempted murder stemming from his running over a police officer during the chase, in which he also hit a school bus and a patrol car before crashing and being ejected from his vehicle.

Ottawa shooting: a false flag designed to steal away our freedoms?

I’m not one to hastily jump to conclusions about events like these, but the alleged shooting at the Canadian parliament and a nearby war memorial that took place today smells like a false-flag operation designed to expedite the Harper regime’s militarist agenda.

The mainstream media is in a furor over the incident. Non-stop wall-to-wall coverage has commenced. Even American and British outlets have picked up the story.

One very noticeable clue as to the fraudulent nature of this event is the immediate calls from establishment propagandists for a crack down on free speech (what they call “hate speech”) and the bolstering of Orwellian “anti-terrorism” laws which will in effect hand the state unlimited powers to spy on the citizenry of Canada and snuff out dissidents.

Third-party candidate Kamau Bakari appeared alongside Bundy and posted the video online last week. It’s since attracted more than 50,000 views on YouTube.

Bakari is running against favored Democratic incumbent Rep. Dina Titus and Republican underdog Dr. Annette Teijeiro in the urban Las Vegas district.

The route was set up beginning in St. Joseph, Missouri and heading out west through Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Nevada, and California. This journey could be up to 100 miles a day for the rider. Horses were changed via relay points every 10 to 15 miles.

big-moneyThe Washoe County School District’s share of a $771,415 settlement with its departing superintendent Pedro Martinez is $135,415, according to documents released this week by the district.

Details of the amount of the settlement, and which entity must pay the different costs, were provided to the Reno Gazette-Journal after the newspaper filed a request for the information Sept. 24, citing the Nevada Public Records Act.

The lion’s share of the settlement — $576,000 — will be covered by school district’s special insurance fund.

The insurance fund will pay the district’s $85,000 in legal fees, Martinez’s $80,000 in legal fees, and the approximately $546,415 payout in salary and benefits for the 15 months remaining in Martinez’s job contract.

The board voted Sept. 23 to accept terms of the settlement as recommended by Washoe District Judge David Hardy, who served as a mediator.

The settlement came after months of upheaval in the school district’s administration.

The dispute began with a July 22 press conference where the school board announced Martinez was being relieved of his duties.

The school board later stated that it put Martinez on paid leave, a decision based on the erroneous belief that he had claimed to be a licensed certified public accountant.

Martinez said that he had been fired by six of the seven board members during an illegally closed meeting held prior to the press conference, and he later filed a wrongful termination lawsuit.

The Nevada Attorney General’s office determined that the board had illegally terminated Martinez and that there was no basis for his dismissal.

Martinez’s settlement

• $85,000 for the district’s legal fees, paid by the school district’s insurance fund

• $80,000 for Pedro Martinez’s legal fees, paid by the district’s insurance fund

• $546,415 in salary and benefits paid to Martinez (assuming a payout for Oct. 2014 to Dec. 22, 2015)

• $411,000 of that $546,415 in salary and benefits will be paid from the Special Insurance Fund and through liability insurance coverage.

Final costs:

Total: $711,415

Insurance covers: $576,000

School district pays: $135,415

WASHINGTON — A bill quietly introduced in Congress would restrict mining and energy exploration over a sweeping area of rural Nevada, preserving scenic valleys and buffering a landmark piece of desert artwork.

Sen. Harry Reid last month introduced legislation to withdraw 805,100 acres of federal land in Garden Valley and Coal Valley straddling the Lincoln and Nye county lines, a desolate area bigger than Rhode Island.

The restrictions would not affect current valid land use such as grazing, but it would forbid the Bureau of Land Management from selling any land or granting permits for oil or mineral prospecting. Activities for new geothermal, solar or wind energy development also would be restricted.

The bill would ensure the most significant feature in the 1,250-square-mile area would be “City,” one of the largest earth sculptures ever created. It is roughly the size of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., and has taken its creator, noted artist Michael Heizer, more than 40 years to craft.

But conservationists said the withdrawal would have a much broader impact, offering a level of protection to some of Nevada’s more stunning landscapes.

Brian O’Donnell, executive director of the Conservation Lands Foundation, said the area provides habitat for mule deer and Pronghorn antelope, and contains Native American rock shelters and ancient Shoshone and Paiute trails. The withdrawal area includes the White River Narrows, an archaeological district of native rock art.

“When you think of unspoiled basin and range country, this is a place that best fits that description,” O’Donnell said. “These are two of the most scenic valleys in Nevada, two of the most undisturbed, least-roaded, and least populated portions of the state and therefore the country.”

Reid did not respond to a request for comment on the bill. His spokeswoman, Kristen Orthman, said the Nevada Democrat “has long had conversations about how to protect the scenic, natural and cultural values in and around Garden Valley.”

The area once was considered for possible wilderness study but was set aside when Congress debated a Lincoln County land act in 2004. More recently, its natural and historic values prompted the BLM to reject it as a site for fast-tracking solar projects, O’Donnell said.

Reid toured the area in 2007 and has had subsequent conversations with Heizer, whose monumental art project has used bulldozers, cranes and other heavy equipment to reshape a slice of desert into his vision.

“Now that the project is almost complete, this is something that has been discussed for a while, and it made sense to do it,” Orthman said.

UNEXPECTED MOVE

Reid introduced the bill Sept. 16, and was the only listed sponsor. Neither Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., nor Rep. Steven Horsford, a House Democrat who represents Nye and Lincoln counties, would comment.

Reid floated a similar proposal in 2010 that would have designated portions of Garden Valley and neighboring Coal Valley as a national conservation area to preserve the area around “City,” said Ed Higbee, chairman of the Lincoln County Commission.

The idea drew opposition from Lincoln County officials then, and likely it will again.

“It is kind of neat stuff,” Higbee said of the “City” complex. But he said it’s hard to swallow restricting development on more than 800,000 acres of a county that is already 98 percent under federal control.

“That’s a huge view-shed,” Higbee said of the proposed withdrawal. “We don’t want that to become a national conservation area.”

The legislation was news to Nye County Commissioner Lorinda Wichman, whose vast district includes all of the county outside of Pahrump. She said she would want to hear from “the folks that live right around” the affected area before she takes a position.

Heizer, who lives in Lincoln County and whose age is given as 69 or 70, specializes in monumental-scale sculptures and pieces of art built out of earthen materials. At the eastern edge of Mormon Mesa near Overton, he displaced 240,000 tons of rock to create “Double Negative” in 1969 and 1970. Visible from space, it consists of two massive trenches, each 50-feet deep by 30 feet wide and spanning 1,500 feet.

Heizer’s “Nine Nevada Depressions” are a series of earthen cuts in dry lake beds around the state, including Jean Dry Lake, Massacre Dry Lake near the ghost town of Vya in Washoe County, and a playa in the Black Rock Desert 100 miles north of Reno.

“City” is Heizer’s lifelong project on private land he acquired about 160 miles northwest of Las Vegas, and about 55 miles west of Pioche. A mile and a half long and 900 feet wide, it comprises five major segments and numerous complexes within each one, made mostly of earth, rocks and concrete and inspired by Native American mound builders and ancient cities of South and Central America. An art critic once described it as “geometric depressions, mounds and plazas linked by unpaved roads.”

“It is perhaps one of the greatest, most ambitious artworks ever attempted,” said Michael Govan, director of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art who has helped Heizer seek support for the project. Unlike traditional art and sculpture, people will have to wander through “City” — like they would a real city — to take it all in, he said.

The project could cost as much as $25 million, according to “double negative,” a website devoted to Heizer and his creations. “City” is not open to the public, but Govan said it will be when it is done. He said Heizer is working on final engineering and conservation plans, as the piece is meant to last thousands of years.

Garden Valley has been eyed for several major projects in the years since Heizer started working on his sculpture. In the 1970s and early 1980s, the government planned to crisscross the valley and others nearby with railroad tracks that would carry MX missiles to and from hidden silos. The program was killed by President Ronald Reagan.

More recently, the Department of Energy proposed building a rail line across Garden Valley to carry casks of nuclear waste to the proposed nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain. Heizer joined Reid in publicly opposing the project.

In one of more than 200 technical protests against the Yucca project the state of Nevada argued the “City” artwork was “a cultural resource of national and international significance” and should not be disturbed.

One of the posts that shocked and disturbed readers most, was published a little over a year ago titled: American Police Make an Arrest Every 2 Seconds in 2012. In the event you never read it, I suggest taking a look before tackling the rest of this piece.

Fast forward to fall 2014, and the Wall Street Journal has a powerful article about how children in schools systems across the U.S. are being arrested or turned over to police custody for doing things that children have always done since the beginning of time. Things such as wearing too much perfume, sharing a classmates’ chicken nuggets, throwing an eraser or chewing gum.

As a result of our insane societal obsession with authority and disproportionate punishment, the WSJ reports that “nearly one out of every three American adults are on file in the FBI’s master criminal database.”

From the Wall Street Journal:

A generation ago, schoolchildren caught fighting in the corridors, sassing a teacher or skipping class might have ended up in detention. Today, there’s a good chance they will end up in police custody.

In Texas, a student got a misdemeanor ticket for wearing too much perfume. In Wisconsin, a teen was charged with theft after sharing the chicken nuggets from a classmate’s meal—the classmate was on lunch assistance and sharing it meant the teen had violated the law, authorities said. In Florida, a student conducted a science experiment before the authorization of her teacher; when it went awry she received a felony weapons charge.

Over the past 20 years, prompted by changing police tactics and a zero-tolerance attitude toward small crimes, authorities have made more than a quarter of a billion arrests, the Federal Bureau of Investigation estimates. Nearly one out of every three American adults are on file in the FBI’s master criminal database.
Did you catch that too? “Zero-tolerance attitude toward small crimes.” Indeed, the big criminals go to Wall Street, crash the economy and then receive trillions in taxpayer bailouts. Or they get a top job in the Obama Administration, such as Jedi-master of cronyism, Tim Geithner, being chosen as Treasury Secretary.

Back to the WSJ…

At school, talking back or disrupting class can be called disorderly conduct, and a fight can lead to assault and battery charges, said Judith Browne Dianis, executive director of the Advancement Project, a national civil-rights group examining discipline procedures around the country.
If these rules were in place in my day, I would have been arrested about 150 times.

“We’re not talking about criminal behavior,” said Texas State Sen. John Whitmire, the Democratic chair of the senate’s Criminal Justice Committee, who helped pass a new law last year that limits how police officers can ticket students. “I’m talking about school disciplinary issues, throwing an eraser, chewing gum, too much perfume, unbelievable violations” that were resulting in misdemeanor charges.

According to the U.S. Education Department’s Office of Civil Rights, 260,000 students were reported, or “referred” in the official language, to law enforcement by schools in 2012, the most-recent available data.

The number of school police officers rose 55% to about 19,000 in the 10 years to 2007, the last year for which numbers were available, according to a 2013 study from the Congressional Research Service.

The schools crackdown has had its intended effect. Victims’ surveys compiled by the Education Department show that there is a lower rate of violent crime committed in schools, falling to 52 incidents per 100,000 students in 2012 from 181 incidents per 100,000 in 1992.Supporters say that alone proves the worth of aggressive policing.
Well yeah, and pigs in a pen are easily controlled too, but are these the types of children we want to raise?

And what about the downside, such as:

Brushes with the criminal justice system go hand in hand with other negative factors. A study last year of Chicago public schools by a University of Texas and a Harvard researcher found the high-school graduation rate for children with arrest records was 26%, compared with 64% for those without. The study estimated about one-quarter of the juveniles arrested in Chicago annually were arrested in school.

A science experiment that went awry turned into a 17-month battle for Kiera Wilmot and her mother as they tried to clear the honor student’s arrest record. According to the police report, she was on school grounds outside the classroom trying out an experiment that hadn’t been authorized by her teacher. Ms. Wilmot, now 18, said she put a piece of aluminum inside a bottle with two ounces of toilet cleaner to see what would happen. The teen’s mother said she was trying to simulate a volcanic eruption.

“It popped,” blowing the top off the bottle, she said. She was handcuffed by the school-resource office, escorted out of the Bartow, Fla., school and taken to a juvenile facility where she was charged with possessing or discharging firearms or weapons at school and making, throwing, possessing, projecting, placing or discharging a destructive device.
Think about what sorts of lessons we are teaching talented students about experimenting and being creative. A modern Benjamin Franklin would most likely be rotting away in solitary right now.

So as we militarize the police, we police the schools. See the direction this is all headed in?

Keep chanting muppets.

cashQuestion:

From the Ask Joe file, one of our viewers, a deputy from Humboldt County, has a question about a case News 4 has been covering that has now made its way into the courts. The issue is whether deputies are taking people’s money illegally during traffic stops.

See video here: http://www.mynews4.com/mostpopular/story/Ask-Joe-Where-does-court-case-involving-cash/S2KgOai3KkOo-5ZdqEaeyQ.cspx

The deputy who wrote in asked that we not use his name, but he would like to know the status of the ongoing lawsuit regarding his agency, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. He said other deputies have asked and they get different answers or the runaround. So he wants to know where things stand?

Answer:

This case has been classified by the judge as a class action suit. Reno attorney John Ohlson is representing the plaintiffs and there was a hearing last week on the case in federal court.

This started when a California man named Tan Nguyn filed suit after he was stopped in Winnemucca. The deputy did not cite him, but he did take $50,000 in cash from him.

After the suit was filed and we aired our story, the Sheriff’s Office gave Nguyn all his money back and paid for his attorney fees. The question is how many others have been victimized this way after getting stopped on the highway.

As Ohlson pointed out in our story, it is not illegal to carry large amounts of cash with you. Ohlson said there are 20 forfeiture cases which have been documented by Humboldt County. At the hearing last week, he asked for copies of video tapes from traffic stops, bank records and the names of people who have been stopped.

This legal process is called discovery. It is where one side asks the other to turn over evidence.

Joe has also confirmed through a source that the Nevada Attorney General has opened its own investigation into this case. However, the AG office would not comment when asked about it.

These cases do not move very fast in federal court. But it does seem that there is growing interest and a growing number of questions about these cash seizures.

CARSON CITY — A panel of state lawmakers on Wednesday rejected a request by the state Division of Parole and Probation to buy AR15 rifles for the agency’s 32 rural officers.

John O’Rourke, deputy chief of the agency, asked the Legislature’s Interim Finance Committee to approve the request for $75,000 from an asset forfeiture fund to buy the rifles, scopes and related equipment.

O’Rourke said officers in rural areas of the state have handguns and some have shotguns, but the rifles would give them greater cover if needed. The rifles would have a range of about 300 yards, he said.

But the request ran into resistance from some members of the panel, which took no action on the item.

Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick, D-North Las Vegas, said she was concerned with the request because of unresolved questions over law enforcement agency responsibility in emergency situations, particularly in light of the state’s budget problems.

“I think the state should stay in their own swimming lanes on what we do on this,” she said. “I think that we have to be very careful in inserting ourselves where there is already some authority to do some of those things.”

The full Legislature needs to examine the role of the various state and local law enforcement agencies next session before approving such a request, Kirkpatrick said.

O’Rourke said he agreed that law enforcement agencies have specific responsibilities.

But when agency officers are called on for assistance, they will respond, he said.

O’Rourke said he would like to purchase the rifles for all sworn officers, but that there isn’t adequate funding to do so.

“I do want to reiterate that in our rural areas, our officers are out miles and miles away from any kind of other resource, and when they do need assistance it will take quite a long time for someone to arrive,” he said.

O’Rourke said Nevada Highway Patrol officers carry the same rifle being requested by Parole and Probation.

The division’s officers, who are Category 1 POST-certified peace officers, primarily are involved in supervising offenders released from prison or who are on house arrest or are participating in such programs as drug court.

But O’Rourke said the officers respond to law enforcement emergencies and requests for assistance as well, including the deadly Sparks Middle School shooting last year.

Sen. Debbie Smith, D-Sparks, chairwoman of the committee, said the request was more than a simple equipment purchase. The request can be part of a policy discussion for lawmakers in the 2015 session, she said.

71% of Obamacare Signups Traced to Government’s Expansion of Medicaid

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 11.53.20 AM

The vast majority of Americans gaining health coverage under Obamacare actually qualified for Medicaid because of loosened eligibility —and that’s what boosted enrollment among those previously uninsured, according to a new report from The Heritage Foundation.

The Obama administration has boasted that the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, would allow those previously uninsured to purchase quality, affordable health care.

Screen Shot 2014-10-23 at 11.55.10 AM

“The inescapable conclusion is that, when it comes to covering the uninsured, Obamacare so far is an expansion of Medicaid,” Heritage Foundation health policy experts Edmund F. Haislmaier and Drew Gonshorowski write in a research paper scheduled for release today.

Officials announced in May that more than 8 million Americans had picked a health plan on the Obamacare website, HealthCare.gov.

Haislmaier and Gonshorowski conclude that 8.5 million Americans gained coverage through Obamacare from January to July.
