“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.

judge tatro scandals

“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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Ty Robben "gangsta blogger"

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.

Front page story: DA Moves to retaliate against Ty Robben

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.

Levi Minor

Levi Minor admitted to shooting Judge Tatro’s frond door in December 2012.

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

Posted: Apr 21, 2014 6:18 PM PDTUpdated: Apr 22, 2014 11:41 AM PDT

Keith Furr

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.

Melanie Sandomierski of Dayton

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.

Carson City DA Neil Rombardo is corrupt

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:

http://nevadastatepersonnelwatch.wordpress.com/2014/04/10/ty-robben-aka-top-ramen-free-at-last-all-charges-dropped/

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.

Mike GaineyRENO, NV – Mike Gainey has always been a poker enthusiast. His passion for the game started as a player, but it wasn’t long before he wanted to break into the business on a professional level. It all started when he got a job as a dealer at the former King’s Castle in 1976.poker

“Out of the first 7 cards, 6 went on the floor. My hands were so sweaty from being nervous that they had to change cards about every two hands,” he says.

Despite a shaky start, Gainey was promoted to lead supervisor two months later. He later went on to be a manager at the Reno Hilton, the Peppermill and spent some time opening poker rooms in New York. But it was his time at the Reno Hilton that he really made his mark by bringing the World Poker Tour to northern Nevada for the very first time in 2001.

“I had virtually every known poker celebrity in attendance. It was the largest event ever in northern Nevada,” he says.

Gainey says poker didn’t really get the credit it deserved until major tournaments came along, and the first WPT event in Reno was a huge success.

“Sports books increased 70%, table games had increased about 50%. So they had seen the value of poker players,” he says.

After spending almost the last two years managing the poker room at the Atlantis, Gainey decided to fold his hand and retire, but he won’t be leaving the game behind permanently.

“Now I’m going to be sitting at the other side of the table. Knowing me, I’ll still be looking around. Bad habits die hard,” says Gainey.

New manager Keith Dames says he enjoyed learning from one of the best and now has some big shoes to fill.

“Mike’s kind of like the pied piper of poker in Reno. He has players that just follow him wherever he goes because they like Mike, they trust him,” says Dames.

On Monday, a table at the Atlantis was dedicated to Gainey. A sign of thanks from players and staff members for his all-in dedication to the game.

plastc bagsSACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown has signed legislation imposing the nation’s first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags.

Brown on Tuesday signed the bill by Democratic state Sen. Alex Padilla of Los Angeles.

Plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery storesstarting next year and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The legislation is meant to encourage consumers to bring their own bags and as a way to reduce litter.

The bill preserves more than 100 local plastic bag bans, including in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Grocers support the ban because it sets a statewide standard and allows them to charge consumers a 10 cent fee for using paper bags.

Plastic and paper bag manufacturers opposed to the legislation say it will result in lost manufacturing jobs in California.

Giant Harley dealership opening next to Vegas sign

The famous “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign will soon get a new next-door neighbor — a sprawling Harley-Davidson dealership that offers motorcycles, accessories and rentals for tourists.

The 55,000-square-foot business, which owners say is the first store on the Strip to sell the bikes, is scheduled for a soft opening later this week and a grand opening in November.

“Harley-Davidson’s brand and Las Vegas’ brand are very similar. They both mean freedom, recreation,” said Timothy Cashman, who co-owns the dealership with business partner Don Andress. “It’s all about them getting out and having a good time.”

The shop had to apply for special zoning because car dealerships typically aren’t allowed in the tourism corridor, Cashman said, and was approved because it’s more akin to an attraction than a car lot. It will replace an existing Harley-Davidson store Cashman operates off the Strip, near Eastern and Sahara avenues.

Cashman said he hopes tourists visiting the sign will cross the street to visit the dealership, which features giant letters spelling out “Harley-Davidson” at the front of the property. He even has a snack bar area where visitors can use free Wi-Fi and recharge their phones after snapping pictures.

Inquiry launched into Clark County child welfare problems

Nevada Supreme Court Justice Nancy Saitta has called for a blue ribbon committee to examine shortcomings in the Clark County child welfare system and courts.problems

The committee will examine problems that include crowding at Child Haven, the county’s emergency shelter for abused or neglected children, the shortage of foster homes, and long court calenders for child welfare cases.

The group will also examine why children are not being released to relatives.

“Action needs to be taken immediately to address these shortcomings that are jeopardizing the well-being of children in Clark County,” Saitta said in a statement Monday. “These children deserve better, and I get no sense of urgency on the part of the system. This committee will identify the most serious issues in the child welfare system and work with County officials to make sure they are corrected quickly.”

Saitta appointed the group as part of the Court Improvement Program for the Protection and Permanency of Dependent Children, which she leads.

problems 2The plan is for the blue ribbon committee to meet during the next four months and come up with recommendations for county action, possible legislative bills for the 2015 session or a combination of both.

In addition to Saitta, the committee will include Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman; County Commissioner Susan Brager; former assembly speaker and Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada Executive Director Barbara Buckley; Nevada Human Health and Services Director Amber Howell; District Judge Deborah Schumacher, Second Judicial District Court; and Thom Reilly, a former Clark County manager and managing principal and founder of The Reilly Group.

“Children are being separated from their siblings and the wishes of relatives are being totally ignored as decisions about the children are being made,” Buckley said in a statement. “There seems to be a real inconsistency in the way children in different parts of town are treated. These are problems that need to be fixed now; they are having a devastating impact on our children.”

Brager said Monday that the panel has an important task ahead — looking at the system globally and all the interconnecting parts of the child welfare system.

“They’re all interlinked,” Brager said. “The focus on the child and being able to do what is right for the child will make it worthwhile. … I’m very excited that we’re looking at the big picture.”

Lisa Ruiz-Lee, director of Clark County Department of Family Services, and Assistant Clark County Manager Jeff Wells are “anxious to be part of the solution,” the state supreme court’s release said.

“I have worked with Justice Saitta on a number of committees and I know her deep commitment to the children and families of our community and I look forward to working with her and the other committee members to address the concerns of the child welfare system,” Wells said in a prepared statement.

Wells and Family Services officials were unavailable for interviews Monday afternoon.

Donna Coleman, a longtime child advocate in Clark County, said that for a blue ribbon panel to have value, it will need to make major, positive changes in a timely fashion with the information it gathers.

“I’ve seen so many panels in my 20-plus years of advocating that have accomplished zero,” Coleman said.

The committee is on a tight schedule. The group is expected to meet three times, with the first meeting set for Oct. 7. The committee’s goal is to finish its work by Jan. 30, 2015. That deadline allows time for any bill proposals to go to Legislature when lawmakers meet in February.

The state convened a blue ribbon panel in 2006 to review child fatalities in Nevada. That panel resulted in steps to improve the tracking and accuracy of information about fatalities, and report death notifications to the state’s Division of Child and Family Services.

Ed Cotton, a consultant who worked with that group, said it will be important for the new committee to have a strategic plan to guide its work. He said it will be important to get input from caseworkers and foster parents.

“I think it’s really important they don’t just review files or talk to managers,” Cotton said.

Flexibility and openness to hearing varied public input can play a key role too for the panel, he said.

One of the things that came out of the last panel’s input was that they couldn’t get through when calling the county’s child abuse hotline. In the public meeting, the panel — after hearing a rosy statement that calls to the hotline get through within three minutes — placed a call to the hotline. They waited 26 minutes before someone on the hotline answered the call, Cotton said.

“You can’t ignore those things when they come up,” he said.

North Las Vegas City Councilman Isaac Barron fire

The roof, the roof is on fire North Las Vegas City Councilman Isaac Barron is lying and owns house where 41 dogs died in fire.

North Las Vegas City Councilman Isaac Barron is lyingNorth Las Vegas City Councilman Isaac Barron is lying when he says he didn’t know nearly 100 dogs were packed into squalid living conditions at a home he owns, asserts a family member of Barron’s renters.

Steve Maltz, brother of Eric and Albert Maltz, who lived in the home that caught fire Sunday night, killing 41 dogs, said Barron had been in the house just six months ago.

“He knew about the dogs. There is no way you can step foot in the house without seeing there are about 100 dogs in there,” Steve Maltz said Monday.

His brothers had rented from the councilman for more than five years and always had several dogs, he said.

North Las Vegas City Councilman Isaac Barron is lying and owns house where 41 dogs died in fire

Steve Maltz said his brother Eric loved dogs and would pick up strays out of fear that they would be euthanized in a shelter. The situation spun out of control when sometimes his brother didn’t have money to get the dogs fixed, said Steve Maltz, who had secretly called animal control a week ago, but hadn’t gotten a response.

Neighbors said animal control came by last week and left a note at the rental home at 2604 Stanley Ave., near Owens Avenue and Civic Center Drive.

Councilman Barron said in a city news release that he was heartbroken and unaware of the conditions inside the house. Barron said he filed a notice of eviction a week ago after the occupants wouldn’t let him in.

“I hope those responsible are held accountable by the authorities. As a councilman I will be looking intoregulations that ensure this doesn’t happen again,” Barron said.

Steve Maltz said if animal activists and the public want someone to blame, they should blame Barron.

“The only thing that (Eric) did wrong is he had too many dogs,” Steve Maltz said. “This house burned down because it wasn’t taken care of because of that damn owner. This is the simple case of a slumlord.”

Both of his brothers are disabled and money was hard to come by, Steve Maltz said. Eric lost his job as a limo driver recently and the pair was waiting for assistance and social security, their brother said. Steve Maltz said the brothers had paid rent by making deals with the councilman for years. Sometimes it was to hold off on rent for a bit until they could make ends meet, one time they paid by buying a pickup truck at an auction and fixing it up, he said.

Most recently, the brothers traded a rifle for rent. But Barron said they still owed money and that’s what set off the eviction notice, Steve Maltz said.

Steve Maltz said the house was uninhabitable and he wanted his brothers to ask Barron to make repairs, but his brothers felt threatened by Barron.

Steve Maltz described the landlord-tenet relationship as one built on “unspoken blackmail”, the understanding being that if his brothers demanded something be fixed, Barron would call the police about the dogs.

“I used to think this guy was cool,” Steve Maltz said. “But he’s not cool. He’s a politician”

Barron did not respond to multiple text messages and phone calls asking for comment.

Steve Maltz said he was completely against his brothers having dozens of dogs, but calling it animal cruelty isn’t right.

“They are trying to portray him as an evil person,” Steve Maltz said. “His crime is having too many dogs and caring about them.”

Firefighters responded to the blaze just before 8 p.m. Sunday.

Fifty-two dogs were taken from the house for care or shelter, North Las Vegas Fire Department Capt. Cedric Williams said Monday.

Neighbors say two brothers had lived in the house for several years. The pair worked as mechanics out of the home, neighbors said.

Responders noticed a number of dogs running around in front of the house. Once they got inside the house, they found about 100 dogs, Williams said.

The fire was quickly contained, but the house sustained heavy smoke damage. One male occupant of the home was taken to University Medical Center for injuries that were not considered life-threatening injuries.

The investigation is ongoing, but North Las Vegas police said Monday morning that charges likely will be filed in connection with the case.

Kaempfer Crowell - Jason D. Woodbury

Jason D. Woodbury

Carson City’s two candidates for District Attorney sparred over delays in prosecuting sensitive cases, victim services and other issues at the League of Women Voters candidate forum Monday night.

Jason Woodbury said one of his principal issues is inexcusable delays in prosecuting cases where children and the elderly are the victims.

He said he would “take ownership of that issue” and ensure prosecution isn’t delayed unless necessary.

But Assistant DA Mark Krueger said the problem is being caused by some of Woodbury’s supporters — members of the Public Defender’s staff.

“Those same defense attorneys are the ones that cause the delay in cases, the ones that go before the court and ask for the delays,” he said.

Asked if they support creating a child advocate system for Carson City, Krueger said the office has a victim and witness services team but that he would support a child advocacy center.mark krueger

“We need to be realistic in what we can expect,” said Woodbury. “Carson City is not of a size that could support a child center.” Woodbury said the capital has a CASA program and individuals in the community to help with those services.

Woodbury said one of his concerns is the turnover rate in the current DA’s office.

“When over 40 employees have come and gone in a 21 person office, that tells you something is wrong,” he said. “It’s going to take a culture change.”

Krueger said most employees left for better jobs or retirement. He said the team in place now is strong and stable.

Asked about the open meeting law Krueger said the Board of Supervisor meetings are open, but the city manager “has the opportunity to meet (privately) with his department heads.” Krueger said he would make certain the open meeting law is followed to the letter.

Woodbury too said he would ensure the open meeting law is followed but he supported the ability for the manager to have private meetings with members of the board.

“These individual meetings have value,” he said. “We need supervisors to have a lot of information that can’t necessarily be conveyed in a public meeting.”

Both touted their backgrounds. Krueger said he was chief deputy in Lyon County for six years before becoming assistant DA in Carson City two years ago and is now preparing for his 40th major criminal trial.

“I’m a team leader and have the ability to make this office run smoothly if given the opportunity,” he said.

Woodbury said after law school, he was a clerk for District Judge Mike Griffin before being hired by then-DA Noel Waters. He was a prosecutor for four years, mostly handling criminal matters. After that, he signed on with Kaempfer Crowell, a major Nevada law firm with offices statewide and now handles primarily commercial business litigation.

He said he would enhance training within the DA’s office and open up opportunities for employee advancement.

“It’s not a stepping stone,” he said. “I don’t want to be judge. I don’t want to be on the Board of Supervisors. There’s a job to be done and I want to be elected to get that job done.”

Russia Disseminates,
Snowden Validates,
NSA Evidence Corroborates
New 9/11 Data Dump

“This 9/11 data dump is so radioactive the US Government will likely collapse.  The world will never be the same when nations everywhere see this report!” 
– Veteran 9/11 Investigator

Source with thanks State of the Nation

2j1k8wiHuge caverns of “melted granite” were found below the foundations of the Twin Towers. Were they caused by thermo-nuclear explosions detonated to obliterate the steel reinforced, cast concrete, tubular core structure of WTC Buildings 1 & 2?

The evidence is now clear and indisputable that the false flag operation carried out on September 11, 2001 was a multi-nation conspiracy.  The USA, Israel, Saudi Arabia and UK have each been proven to be directly involved with the execution and coverup of this crime against humanity.

There were other state actors and intelligence agencies involved such as Pakistan’s ISI; however, the US Federal Government and Israel Secret Services are by far the most complicit.  The voluminous amount of circumstantial evidence alone both indicts and convicts the US Government of crimes against its own citizenry.  Likewise, Israel’s fingerprints are all over the 9/11 crime scene and directly related criminal activities.

Enter Russia … Edward Snowden … and the Alternative News Media  

When Edward Snowden opted to stay in Russia after fleeing the USA little did he know that the NSA treasure trove he absconded with would serve as the basis for so much 9/11 revelation.  The existence of this extraordinary cache of NSA evidence documenting criminal activity conducted at the highest levels of government has empowered Russia to reveal 9/11 Truth with unimpeachable authority.  Hence, the Kremlin now conducts periodic and strategic data dumps concerning the real facts surrounding the events of 9/11.

As long as the Anglo-American Axis, the European Union, and NATO continue to antagonize and persecute Russia, why would they not continue their “massive download” of 9/11 evidence which indicts the original accusers.  The coup d’état conducted by the CIA, MI6 and MOSSAD in downtown Kiev only served to further inflame an already justifiably angry Russia.

Putin Plays Chess While Obama Plays Checkers

While the USA & Company issues one sanction after another,  it is Putin who owns the critical pieces in the critical places on the ever-changing geopolitical chessboard.  Not only can Russia shut down the Ukraine economy in a day and a night, much of Europe can be left out in the cold this coming winter season.  Much more importantly, however, Russian social networks can download HUGE amounts of 9/11 evidence about the true false flag perpetrators in a New York Minute.

Whereas Russia has yet to do just that, the Kremlin has permitted the release of earth-shattering material which is generally known on the internet as 9/11 Truth.  The world is starving for such unvarnished and genuine truth in view of the fact that those false flag attacks have been systematically utilized by the real perpetrators to wage war against nations near and far.

That’s all about to change in 2014.

With the dissemination of the most recent round of 9/11 Truth, the guilty state actors have been painted into the corner … WITH NO WAY OUT.  When a nation such as Russia, which possesses an intelligence apparatus second only to the USA, provides high integrity information and data pertaining to the 9/11 false flag operation, and Edward Snowden is backing it up with NSA-generated hard evidence, how can the real perps possibly squeeze out of that corner?

The internet has seen to it that no one can hide in 2014 and beyond … not in Paraguay, not in Pine Gap, nor in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.  What do we mean by this?

The following bullet points were extracted from one of the most earth-shaking interviews ever conducted on radio.  This truly extraordinary interview took place among a group of 9/11 Truth seekers whose collective knowledge base, unique experience set and access to insider information qualified them “to blow the lid off ” the US Government-coordinated conspiracy to commit high treason, mass murder, grand theft and premeditated acts of state-sponsored terrorism.

The YouTube video of this unprecedented interview is shown below, as is the original hyper-link.  This particular link has also been used for the following bulletized transcription of many of the key points concerning 9/11 Truth that were discussed.  Many of those points have the YouTube time posted for ease of referencing.

Beginning of transcription of key points from the preceding interview:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  • World trade center destroyed by nuclear weapons.  Documents in hand prove source of materials for these weapons.
  • Able Danger investigation proved that the FBI was complicit in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.  Mossad Agent Monica Lewinsky was set up to get Clinton to stop investigating the Oklahoma City nuclear event.
  • 40:01   Real Able Danger established after Oklahoma City bombing, to investigate a group that included a rogue organization within the CIA, Israeli, and Saudi Intelligence.  Able Danger pre-report lists CIA [part of Able Danger investigation], The Mossad, and Saudi Intelligence, were operating in the USA as terror cells who called themselves by a code name = Al Qaeda
  • Able Danger investigated theft of nuclear material, and the Dept of Energy, stating a high-ranking individual within US Energy Dept, perhaps the Director himself, was an Israeli agent who made available to Viktor Bout, and those working with him, could have been a brother of President George Bush, and the Prime Minister of Israel, and the Prime Minister of South Africa at that time, were all directly involved.
  • 44:00   Gordon Duff pulls up report Russians sent to him that lists people who planned destruction of the World Trade Center in NYC.  9/11 attacks were partially done as nuclear blackmail, and also to stop Able Danger investigating theft of over $200 trillion and 350 nuclear warheads.  Gordon has documents from the Russian government regarding Able Danger.
Is this the Nuclear Blast Hole beneath a WTC Tower that Dimitri Khalizov reported would result from a 150 KiloTon Bomb underground nuclear explosion?Is this the Nuclear Blast Hole beneath a WTC Tower that Dimitri Khalizov reported would result from a 150 KiloTon Bomb underground nuclear explosion?

  • CRITICAL:
    Department of Energy supplied information on nuclear “pits”, the center of warheads that were sent to Pantex ["the United States' only nuclear weapons assembly and disassembly facility" (Wikipedia -- Pantex Plant)], Amarillo, Texas to convert into fuel.  Some pits were configured in such a way to remanufacture into nuclear weapons. Some pits had deteriorated to such an extent, and were of a configuration that if someone tried to manufacture them, it would be the last thing they ever did!  The pits removed from there; if you thought you could enter a nuclear reprocessing facility and just grab something off the shelf [MOX  plutonium], without detailed, exceedingly classified information about the chemical make-up, design, and current condition of each of the 350 pits taken, it would be a complete waste of time and energy.
  • 46:00  They began cherry picking, to re-build the Israeli nuclear arsenal after the Dimona reactor operation had crashed between 1988 and 1994.  Colonel James Henke, Attaché to Israel, and now Editor of VT, was in the reactor on behalf of US government, investigating what happened within that reactor.
  • When the Israelis were no longer able to produce nuclear weapons, they found a way to just take them off the shelf in the USA.  VITAL: The only way they could do that is with the help of a high level mole within the Dept of Energy who could tell them which ones to take.  This is likely one of the biggest national secrets ever! We’ll go back to the make-up of the group involved in running this organization, which by the way is responsible for the FRANKLIN SCANDAL.
  • 47:44   This group controls members of Congress through running gambling money through Las Vegas and Macau, running prostitution and [rent boys] groups across the USA and through Washington, DC.  It runs a massive blackmail organization out of Cuba.  Stew Webb has confirmation from the NSA on this organization.  This organization handles its cash through Bain Capital and the world’s largest retail chain aids them in doing this through banks that it owns; a massive money laundering operation.
  • 48:46   Speaking from lists they have stating the first Director of Homeland Security was listed as the head of Al Qaeda [insinuated to be Michael Chertoff]; the real Osama Bin Laden, assisted by US Attorney who had handled all 9/11 investigations.   50:40  ISIL/ISIS is a total creation of the CIA, Saudi and Mossad Intelligence code named “Al Qaeda”.  Individuals who initially set it up are still running it.  This is why the government of Iraq announced on Sept 22, 2014, if Americans wanted to have boots on the ground, they have no interest in having anyone there, because of the involvement of these 3 organization, there isn’t anyone they can trust.
  • 51:40   [JOHN] Latest invasion of Iraq and Syria not getting knee-jerk reaction from American public, and beheadings are all very likely false, too.  Looks like they’re setting us up for a fake boogey man to do something very catastrophic to America to make us blindly go into another conflict.
  • 52:05   GORDON DUFF response: This is why I am saying what I am saying today.  Gordon has an indication, and frankly it could have happened already were it not for so many whistleblowers on the internet exposing potential nuclear plots, that there is a nuclear threat against USA. Russians are an aware of this.  There has been an exchange or not?  Gordon will not box with Russians, who give Gordon information.  The Ukrainian war went nuclear!  The government in Kiev says it has.  They are staunch allies of USA.

Yant with gun 300x236 Killer Police Officer Yant promoted to shooting counselor of the Police Unionby Alexandra Cohen September 25, 2014

Two members of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department were involved in two different high profile shootings; one was fired and the other one was presumably punished by being put behind a desk to calm the so-called outrage of the community before he was promoted for his “mishap” by being named director of a department of the Las Vegas Police Protective Association, the police union that represents the rank and fileof the police department.
Officer Jesus Arevalo shot a disabled Gulf War veteran, Stanley Gibson, whose car was sandwiched in between two patrol cars, while he was waiting for orders.
A lieutenant, a sergeant, and two additional police officers — all monitored by someone located a distance away from the place of action — were all witnesses to Officer Arevalo’s actions.
“Although there were multiple issues cited by the board regarding tactics and decision-making, ultimately Officer Jesus Arevalo was the only officer who used deadly force,” Sheriff Doug Gillespie said during a press conference that, as always, excluded the Las Vegas Tribune.
Officer Jesus Arevalo, as with the family-owned Las Vegas Tribune, is a Latino that became the scapegoat for the police department’s display of discrimination. The Las Vegas Tribune has been discriminated against by Gillespie and his administration ever since the newspaper refused to endorse him in his two runs for the office that he now occupies.
Bryan Yant, a detective with the Las Vegas Police Department, is the other officer involved in a different high profile officer involved shooting; there are several differences between how his situation was handled compared to that of Arevalo, who lost his job.
Yant, in his first ten years as a police officer, has been involved in three police shootings, killing two suspects and wounding the third; he lied to a judge to obtain a false searchwarrant to enter the home of Trevon Cole, an alleged small marijuana dealer who was naked in his bathroom when the detective forced his way into the apartment Cole shared with his pregnant girlfriend.
Yant’s explanation of the shooting given during a coroner’s inquest presented discrepancies from the coroner’s explanation for the shooting. The Clark County prosecutor, who normally sides with the police, asked Yant how he could explain the two different versions of the shooting (one being Yant’s version) to which he cynically responded, “I am not a forensic scientist; that is what I saw.”
As a surprise to many people, the Police Union has named Yant to a position in which he can counsel police officers who are involved in shootings — perhaps even telling them how to lie to a judge and how to get away with murder — and even police officers, active police officers within Metro, have expressed their disappointment with Yant’s recent promotion by their union.
Yant’s salary will likely jump — like any other union official — up to perhaps $200,000 a year, and his workload will be reduced to a couple of hours a day, if that, as he stays home waiting for a shooting to happen so he can then advise and council the officer involved in the shooting.
A few police officers have commented that the union administration took Yant to upset the current Metro administration and Sheriff Douglas Gillespie, who vowed to keep Yant on a desk assignment for the rest of his career instead of firing and prosecuting the detective.

Former Clark County Prosecutor Dave Roger — who resigned one year after being re-elected to “spend more time” with his family, now has two jobs and his wife is a judge inMunicipal Court — told the media during the coroner’s inquest that he thought Yant was lying on the stand; but now that he is one of the lawyers for the police union under the director Chris Collin’s wife, he seems to have become mute and has not made any comments to the media.

Gordon Martines column “Coincidence” is never a good word to use around a real cop when a crime has occurred or is still occurringWhen the word “coincidence” is uttered in any fashion around a police incident, it usually means and denotes that there is a connection somehow or somewhere to someone, and it is now up to the instincts and experience of the investigating officer to find out what the “coincidental” connection is.
Let’s take for example the alleged Billion Dollar theft — or rather, transfer — from the Nevada Taxpayers State Treasury, which went into the private bank accounts — instead of a Trust — of a private company called “EICON” or (Employees Insurance Company of Nevada), back in the year 2000.
This occurred with the blessings of then Governor Kenney Guinn, along with then Nevada State Attorney General, Brian Sandoval, and now Governor, Brian Sandoval, and soon to possibly be U. S. Presidential Candidate Brian Sandoval, because at the time the Workers Comp System (S.I.I.S.) somehow became insolvent. It is widely suspected that Dirty Harry had his hand in supporting and promoting the political rise of Brian Sandoval.
One of the assistant attorney generals at the time, David Otto, Esq., who happened to be in charge of the Fraud Section, noticed this illegal transfer of the Billion Dollars, and then filed a criminal complaint against the company called “EICON.” This complaint was submitted to the Washoe County District Court in 2006, where it still remains, shoved under the rug and never properly addressed.
Coincidentally, former Governor Guinn “accidentally” fell off of his roof and died right around the time of that submittal to the court.
Soon thereafter former Assistant Attorney General, David Otto, Esq. “coincidentally” left the Attorney Generals Office and went into private practice in Reno. Apparently his submittal was not appreciated by others.
Coincidentally, David Otto, Esq. became my attorney to assist me in my 2011 Federal Lawsuit against LVMPD, Sheriff Douglas Gillespie, et al., after I fired my then attorney, Gabriel Martinez, Esq. Coincidentally, in 2013 David Otto, Esq. supplied 2014 Governor Candidate David Lory Vanderbeek the legal documents regarding the illegal transfer of the Billion Dollars to EICON, the same documents he submitted for prosecution against EICON to the Washoe County District Court in 2006.
Coincidentally, I was now shown these documents of the illegal transfer by Vanderbeek, whereby and immediately I generated letters requesting help and assistance to bring this enormous theft of biblical proportions to the attention of the proper authorities. I generated letters to U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden, Senator Harry Reid, Senator Dean Heller, the Justice Department, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, Nevada Attorney General Mastos, Clark County District Attorney Wolfson, the FBI, and of course, Clark County Sheriff Douglas Gillespie — since I was still employed by the LVMPD as a detective in the Robbery/Homicide Bureau, and was thus following policy by properly notifying my chain of command of the information regarding this immense criminal act.
I happened to be on medical leave for a heart condition that was exasperated by my former supervisor, then Sgt James Melton, now Lt. James Tom Melton, on November 7, 2010.
Coincidentally, nobody acknowledged my letters requesting help, except for the Justice Department, who replied with their letter stating that I had sent my letter and complaint to the wrong federal agency, thus passing the buck to someone else.
Coincidentally, in November of 2013, a systematic illegal effort was launched against me by the LVMPD, with the ultimate goal of terminating me from employment, including the dismissal of my 2011 Federal Lawsuit, which was against LVMPD, Sheriff Douglas Gillespie, et al.
Coincidentally, Judge George Foley Jr., in May of 2013, indicated to me and David Otto, Esq. that my Federal Lawsuit against LVMPD, Sheriff Douglas Gillespie, et al., contained information that literally would blow the lid off the police department. Then, for some unknown reason, Judge Foley reversed his opinion, and in March of 2014 dismissed my Federal Lawsuit. However, several criminal acts resurfaced during legal depositions, specifically four unsolved murders, in which the LVMPD was complicit.
Coincidentally, shortly thereafter the arbitrator in my appeal to save my job ruled against me and sustained my termination from employment for basically being on sick leave too long (three heart surgeries and extensive heart treatments), and for basically being a thorn in the police department’s side and exposing their current and past criminal activity. It should be noted that I have two doctors’ evaluations that state I can go back to work in a light duty capacity. After 36 years of loyal police service, it is just a terrible thing not to be loved by my beloved police department.
Coincidentally, my partner and former detective, L. Araujo, and current Sgt. S. Junge, both lied under oath during legal depositions in June/July of 2013 in order to protect the police department, undermine my Federal Lawsuit, and probably also to save their own jobs or necks.
Coincidentally, the union attorney that represented me, John Harper, Esq., was now no longer allowed to represent police officers in a workers compensation-type case against the LVMPD. I wonder why!
Coincidentally, attorney David Otto, Esq., advised me that he did not wish to represent me further in any of my appeals. I wonder why!
Coincidentally, since filing my January 2011 Federal Lawsuit, five asst. sheriffs have resigned or retired; a Clark County district attorney stepped down three years before his term was up and also fired his assistant; and the sheriff who had planned on running for a third term changed his mind in a week’s time to not run for a third term. None of these persons have ever offered a plausible reason for leaving public office.
The word “coincidence” has a very special meaning for me, but also please be advised and pay attention because this saga is far from over. This portrait of evil, this disgusting cancerous infestation of the LVMPD police administration — which also includes some of our local and state government leaders — will be facing justice soon enough. Stay tuned.
In God we Trust.
Gordon Martines is a former LVMPD detective who has served in many capacities over his 39-year career in law enforcement. He has been a candidate for sheriff in 2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014, with the intention of bringing integrity and accountability back to the department, and filed a federal lawsuit against LVMPD in 2011. Martines now contributes his opinions and ideas to the Las Vegas Tribune to keep the public informed and help improve policing in Las Vegas. He has also appeared on the Face the Tribune radio program several times to share his plan for a better LVMPD.

Blanca Diaz 225x300 Mother protests with hunger strike in front of the R. J. C. against Judge Douglas Smithby Rolando Larraz September 25, 2014

Judge Douglas Smith

The mother of a young man with several mental illnesses spent all last week in front of the Regional Justice Center on a hunger strike protesting against a court decision by Judge Douglas Smith after her son finalized a plea deal where he would plead guilty to lesser charges in return for a much lower sentence.
Dagmar Diaz was arrested and charged with kidnapping and intent of sexual assault; his public defender attorney negotiated a lower sentence if he admits guilt to a lesser charge.
Up to now, everything seemed routine and business as usual with the prosecutors and defense attorneys playing at law with the lives of the defendants.
However, everyone agreed to the plea bargain deal and they were ready to be in Department 8 in front of Judge Douglas Smith to seal the negotiations, but no one counted on the judge’s racial antagonism against Latino defendants; he did not approve the deal.
The Public Defender appointed to the case tried to explain to the judge that the young man had several head injuries and illnesses due to being run down under a car in front of his school, but Judge Smith did not allow her to finish the explanation and shut her down.
The Deputy District Attorney, who always hides under the name of the elected District Attorney, was shocked with the judge’s decision and tried to explain to the judge the plea agreement, but the judge told both attorneys that he didn’t care and the ultimate decision was up to him and… NEXT CASE.
Judge Smith is known for being rude and arrogant on the bench and has the tendency to be extremely rude to people who speak with an accent.
Judge Smith most recently was in the spotlight when he locked up a Hispanic man because he thought the defendant displayed an attitude while in court, and then raised the man’s bail from $3,000 to $1 million. Later the Nevada Supreme Court disagreed with Smith’s order and ordered the defendant’s bail back down to the original $3,000 and the case transferred to another courtroom.
The issue with that Hispanic defendant is not the only case on which the Supreme Court had disagreed with the decision of Judge Smith; Las Vegas Tribune found more than thirty cases in which the Nevada Supreme Court had not been in agreement with Judge Smith, reversing the rulings.
Dagmar Diaz and his mother Blanca have been in the country little more than a decade from Cuba; just a few months after Dagmar was enrolled in his school, he was run over by a car in front of that school on Twain and Spencer.
Dagmar was in a coma for fourteen days and his mother had to quit working to care for him; he was diagnosed with schizophrenia, post traumatic brain damage and attention deficitdisorder (ADD) and needed continual medical attention.
“My son broke the law and has to pay for his error — which is how I raised him, to take responsibility for his actions, when the woman who stabbed him in the hand came to me and told me about the incident,” said Blanca Diaz during an interview at the Las Vegas Tribune office last Monday.
“Kidnapped and she was able to walk to me and tell me what she says happened? I do not see the kidnap anywhere, but…” said the elder Diaz.
Blanca Diaz told the Las Vegas Tribune that she is not complaining because her son was arrested, but she is disappointed that the judge did not follow the prosecutor’s recommendation and accept the plea agreement.
“My son needs continual medical attention; the judge could have sent him to a medical facility instead of a regular prison where he is running the risk of getting killed by either another inmate or by a prison guard if he gets off track, [off] the medicine, and goes on an attack,” Ms. Diaz explained.
On Monday, Diaz was supposed to be in court but it was postponed until today, Wednesday, September 24, and his future is unpredictable; but Blanca Diaz will be on Face The Tribune radio show on Friday, September 26 at noon talking about her son’s case.
Blanca Diaz’s hunger strike is the first hunger strike in Clark County and she did not say if she will continue the strike after her son’s Wednesday court appearance.

Raw: President Obama Addresses Police Mistrust
 
WASHINGTON (AP) — The widespread mistrust of law enforcement that was exposed by the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black man in Missouri exists in too many other communities and is having a corrosive effect on the nation, particularly on its children, President Barack Obama says. He blames the feeling of wariness on persistent racial disparities in the administration of justice.

Obama said these misgivings only serve to harm communities that are most in need of effective law enforcement.

“It makes folks who are victimized by crime and need strong policing reluctant to go to the police because they may not trust them,” he said Saturday night in an address at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s annual awards dinner.

“And the worst part of it is it scars the hearts of our children,” Obama said, adding that it…

(CNN) — A police officer patrolling in Ferguson, Missouri, was shot in the arm late Saturday, police said. His wound was not life-threatening, and he was released from a local hospital after being treated.

There’s no reason to believe the shooting was connected with demonstrations over the August police shooting of unarmed African-American teen Michael Brown, authorities said.

“It didn’t happen within the proximity of the protest area,” said St. Louis County Police Chief Col. Jon Belmar. The shooting scene was in a more secluded area.

“I wouldn’t have any reason to believe right now that it was linked in any way, shape, manner or form with the protests,” he said.

The distribution of Gymnorhinus cyanocephalus is in the western and southwestern United States, in foothills and lower mountain slopes.  They forage on the seed of the pinyon pine, but will also eat juniper or ponderosa pine seeds as well as berries, fruit, and insects.  With a very strong bill, they open the green pine cone and remove the seed.   In years when seed crops are low, they will relocate outside their home territory…

Limited edition prints of “Nine Cheers for the Silver State” by Dayton artist Steven Saylor are being sold as a fundraiser for the Comstock Foundation for History and Culture. (Courtesy)
 

By SANDRA CHEREB
LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL

CARSON CITY — A painting featuring Nevada dignitaries enacting a pivotal moment in state history is being publicly unveiled next month as part of the Silver State’s sesquicentennial celebration to raise money for preservation projects on the historic Comstock.

But two figures — whom most people won’t recognize — included in the festive scene are rubbing some Comstock residents the wrong way. They say it implies a coziness between elected officials and a mining company they’ve been trying to thwart from digging for riches in mountains and canyons near their homes.

Limited edition prints of “Nine Cheers for the Silver State” by Dayton artist Steven Saylor are being sold as a fundraiser for the Comstock Foundation for History and Culture. The nonprofit group was formed last year by Comstock Mining Co. to raise money for preservation work in Nevada’s historic Comstock region.

Residents along Nevada’s Comstock embrace the region’s storied past, when discovery of silver in 1859 touched off a frenzy of pick- and shovel-hoisting miners seeking fortune. But many oppose Comstock Mining’s renewed push to extract silver and gold from the rugged, dusty landscape with huge earthmovers and trucks.

They are irked that the artwork includes portrayals of two mining company executives — Corrado De Gasperis, president and chief executive of Comstock Mining, and John Winfield, one of the company’s largest investors. Both are also directors of the nonprofit Comstock Foundation.

“The recognition, it just looked sort of old-fashion, perceived of replicating a backroom deal,” said Joe McCarthy of the Comstock Residents Association.

“It comes across a little disingenuous. At least for those who are really sensitive to what’s going on up here,” he said.

BEHIND THE CONFLICT

What’s going on is a clash between the then and now, where some residents fear industrial mining activities threaten to destroy the tourism and cultural economy — ironically rooted in mining and the romance of the Old West — they’ve worked to promote over past decades after mining played out.

The communities, McCarthy said, “emerged out of extractive industries going bust years and years ago. So they no longer are mining communities.”

De Gasperis called his detractors “good folks.”

Comstock Mining has pledged to try to be a good neighbor. It purchased the historic Gold Hill Hotel and has invested in shoring up old mill sites to preserve the region’s history. The foundation recently announced its acquisition of the Donovan Mill in Silver City, which it plans to restore.

The mining company also has committed 1 percent of its bullion to the foundation for ongoing preservation and cultural work with the historic district.

In the painting, De Gasperis is seated across from Gov. Brian Sandoval, who is signing a proclamation commemorating Nevada’s admittance into statehood on Oct. 31, 1864. Winfield is standing next to U.S. Sen. Harry Reid.

Set in the historic Cobb Mansion in Virginia City, all the participants are portrayed in period clothing. They include Paul Laxalt and Richard Bryan, both former governors and U.S. senators; former Govs. Bob List and Bob Miller; U.S. Sen. Dean Heller; Rep. Mark Amodei; former first ladies Dema Guinn and Dawn Gibbons; and Ron James, former state historic preservation officer, now executive director of the Comstock Foundation.

FOR A GOOD CAUSE

James scoffed at the criticism that he said is coming from a vocal few.

“All the feedback I’ve received is overwhelmingly positive,” James said.

“This is to raise money for a nonprofit organization that is doing a great deal to try to save the resources on the Comstock,” he said. “That mining company is donating hundreds of thousands of dollars for that goal.”

He added, “I’m not impressed by the naysayers who aren’t doing anything at all that’s positive,” James said.

De Gasperis said Saylor approached him about doing the painting as a fundraiser.

“He’s the guy who really spearheaded it,” De Gasperis said.

Saylor said he exercised artistic license to include the mining officials in his latest work.

“I asked them to be in it,” the artist said. “The mining people are on the foundation, the Comstock Foundation for History and Culture. They are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to do something here that no one else has been doing.”

De Gasperis said he was uncomfortable being included in the painting of notable Nevadans.

“To be honest, I don’t like the fact I’m in the picture, either,” he said. “It was really awkward.”

But he anticipates the prints will raise more than $100,000 “to preserve at-risk resources on our national landmark.”

James said the foundation paid $32,000 for the artwork and expenses, such as costs for making the prints.

‘CLUBBY ATMOSPHERE’

Erich Obermayr, a Silver City resident, said the mining officials’ inclusion implies a “clubby atmosphere.” Taken aback, he sent a letter to Reid, saying he found the senator’s likeness in the painting “offensive.”

Obermayr said he has no objection to the painting itself or using it as a fundraiser, and in an interview he acknowledged the foundation has done some good things. But he likened the residents’ ongoing fight against the mining company to Reid’s vocal crusade against the Koch brothers, the billionaire Republican donors the Democratic majority leader has described as “un-American” and a “cult.”

“Your participation is particularly galling to residents of Silver City and Lyon County because, for all practical purposes, Comstock Mining has made itself the Koch brothers of our county,” Obermayr wrote in a Sept. 15 letter.

“Your image is being exploited by the very people you have spent a career fighting against, and their motives are much more self-serving than raising money for a good cause.”

Reid’s office had no comment on the letter, a spokeswoman said.

For Obermayr, chairman of Silver City’s advisory board, the mining issue is a raw wound following the Lyon County Commission’s approval of a master plan and zone change that could allow Comstock Mining to expand operations in and around Silver City. Both the town advisory board and county planning department had recommended denial.

The approval is now being challenged in court.

Storey County commissioners also recently granted a permit allowing Comstock Mining to potentially expand its Lucerne Pit and operations at a nearby ore-processing site and realign a highway to access ore.

On its website, the company said during the first six months of 2014 it poured 9,152 ounces of gold and 97,979 ounces of silver, an increase of 27 percent and 67 percent, respectively, compared with the same time period a year earlier.

Saylor’s works in the past have been used for various fundraising efforts. Two notable piece are “Heavyweights,” done in the late 1980s depicting six former governors who were alive at the time, and “Celebrity Train,” featuring then-Gov. Bob Miller and an array of country-western music stars. Sales of those prints benefited the restoration of the Virginia & Truckee Railroad and Nevada’s State Capitol, according to Saylor’s website.

Reservations are being taken for the 150 prints being made available. Each print is signed by participants and will come with a 1-ounce medallion minted from Comstock silver. They are being sold for $1,150. For an additional $400, the print will be framed and include a second medallion to show both sides of the minting.

The original artwork will be publicly unveiled Oct. 31 at the Gold Hill Depot as part of Virginia City’s Statehood Parade.

RENO, Nev. (AP) — A federal judge has refused to block the release of oil and gas leases in Nevada that critics say will be used for hydraulic fracturing that could harm sage grouse and cause more environmental damage than the Bureau of Land Management admits.

U.S. District Judge Miranda Du ruled she has no authority to grant opponents’ request for an emergency order at this time to prevent the BLM from formally issuing the leases in a vast swath of central Nevada.

Lawyer Glade Hall, who represents the Reese River Basin Citizens Against Fracking, says they’re considering refiling their complaint.

The coalition of ranchers, farmers and others say the BLM has abused its authority by limiting public comment and failing to conduct an adequate review of the potential impacts of the fracking.

Omg you guys, we actually managed to triple our bet in Las Vegas. But before I elaborate on that let me tell you what we thought of Vegas before we tried the slot machine on our way out of the Casino….

We arrived at our resort in Las Vegas – called the Wynn, a very new resort hotel on the Las Vegas Boulevard also called the strip and were overwhelmed. First of all it is hot in Vegas. Not just hot, but sweaty. It is so moist and damp that the heat seems unbearable and we were actually glad for the first time in our trip, that the Americans deep frost every room with their air-cons. We went up the elevator from the parking garage and we arrived in the middle of that:

Sierra-Leone-Town-Quarantine-Tape

(NaturalNews) High-density population areas of Sierra Leone have just been locked down in the largest pandemic quarantine in history, and it’s already causing a collapse of the food delivery infrastructure. The local government says forced isolation orders will remain in effect until Ebola is eradicated. This essentially means that millions of people are now under a state of military quarantine until they either become immune to Ebola or die from it.

“President Ernest Bai Koroma put Port Loko, Bombali, and Moyamba districts under isolation with immediate effect, allowing only people delivering essential services to enter and circulate within these areas,” reports Associated Press. [1] “The restrictions will remain in place until the chain of transmission is broken, officials said.”

AP goes on to report:

Sierra Leone on Thursday took the dramatic step of sealing off districts where more than 1 million people live as it and other West African…

Next Level BS Exclusive: Kahler Nygard Interview On His TSA Harassment In Denver

 

 

 

 

Published on Sep 15, 2014

” Our third episode is an exclusive interview with Kahler Nygard, getting the full story on the video he posted last week, showing some startling TSA harassment after he landed in the Denver International Airport. TSA agent Alex Grossman demanded that Kahler go through “additional screening” of his person and luggage, upon arrival in Denver. The mainstream media has continually distorted this story, doing everything from labeling Kahler as a suspected Somali terrorist, to trying to defend the TSA by implying Kahler didn’t get complete screening at this departure airport in Minneapolis. Next Level BS get’s the story straight from Kahler Nygard himself. “

“The New York Fed,” the statement says, “categorically rejects the allegations being made about the integrity of its supervision of financial institutions.”

“The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has sought and acquired shooting ranges throughout the country for TSA agents to fire up to half a million rounds of ammo at each facility and to practice at ranges with separate entrances so that they can be hidden from the public. The contracts sought ranges located within short driving distances of major airports in Los Angeles, New York and Atlanta. The agency will practice “tactical move and shoot drills” at shooting ranges “concealed from the public.” They will be using 9mm, .40, and .357 caliber ammunition – allowing shooters to “draw and fire from the holster and from concealment.” The dollar value of each contract was nearly half a million dollars.”
