TN Highway Patrol Under Fire After Troopers Expose Alleged DUI Quota System

DUI Quota SystemA December 2014 email, uncovered by attorney Don Spurrell and exposed to the public by Johnson City Press, from Tennessee Highway Patrol Lt. Traci Barrett to her troopers, said, “If we have personnel that fall behind the district trooper average on DUI arrests, then I cannot allow us to remain on permanent shifts.

Tennessee Highway PatrolAs we all know, DUI arrests are extremely important, and no group of personnel should be expected to ’carry’ another group.” The email raised questions as to whether Tennessee Highway Patrol is using a proportional or percentage-based quota system to increase its Driving Under the Influence arrest statistics.

Senior citizen arrested for driving classic car by the Nazi Nevada Highway Patrol NHP

Featured

nevada is a police stateLAS VEGAS — A Washington couple says they were falsely arrested by the Nevada Highway Patrol for stealing a collector car they actually owned.

The highway patrol admitted two errors that led to Robin and Beverly Bruins being removed from their car at gunpoint. And, now, the highway patrol is facing a lawsuit.

As the I-Team learned, it all began with confusion over a license plate on a classic car. A highway patrol dash camera recorded a trooper stating over a loudspeaker: “Driver! Remove your keys from the ignition and put them on the roof now!”

From that point Robin Bruins and his wife experienced a daylight nightmare when the senior citizens found themselves looking down the barrels of police pistols.

“Actually, I think I might have giggled to Bev saying, ‘well, I don’t know what this is all about’ and I put the keys on there,” Robin Bruins said. “And I turned and looked back and saw three gun barrels pointed at me. And, obviously it hit me. Whoa! What’s going on here. To this day I have never experienced anything like looking down the barrel of guns like that.”

The trooper said to him: “Go ahead with your right hand lift your shirt up. Go ahead, lift your shirt up. With the top of your collar!”

Multiple officers were shouting commands Robin Bruins said he found conflicting or confusing.

One trooper said: “OK. Turn around slowly. Turn around slowly.”

Bruins told the I-Team: “He was telling me to do something and I had my hands in the air and he said to do something again and I looked at him and I said, ‘are you talking to me?’ You know, what’s going on?”

Trooper: “Turn around. Turn around the other way.”

Bruins: “Me?”

Trooper: “Yes, you!”

Bruins to the I-Team: “And it wasn’t until I had taken my shirt off and told to get on my knees and handcuffed and I said, ‘What’s going on? Do you think this car is stolen or something?’ And he said, ‘exactly right. And their car is going back to its rightful owner.’”

fuckthepoliceBeverly Bruins said the troopers treated the couple “like we were Bonnie and Clyde.” She was removed from the car at gunpoint with a broken leg at the time.

“I got out of the car and I thought, how am I gonna walk back without crutches?” she said. So, I went to reach for my crutches in the back seat and they yelled at me, ‘Keep — we said keep your hands in the air and walk backward towards us.’”

A woman trooper took Beverly Bruins into custody and checked her background.

“And then she ran a check on my license plate and came back and un-handcuffed me and asked me if I’d like to say goodbye to my husband,” Beverly Bruins said. “And I said, ‘goodbye to my husband? Where’s my husband going?’ And she said, ‘well, he’s going to jail.’ So I went over to see Rob and he’s in the back seat with no shirt on on, hands behind his back and tears are running down his face.”

Robin Bruins was ultimately taken to the Clark County Detention Center, where he spent most of the night in a holding cell with two dozen new acquaintances but not his nerve medicine.

“And I said, ‘well I’m past the time for my medications, can I take those now?’” he said. “You know, thinking that he was going to give ’em to me. And they said, ‘no, you can’t have anything you brought with you.’”

While her husband was in jail Beverly Bruins took her crutches and luggage to a hotel where she was able to sort things out. It turns out the car was stopped by the troopers because it had an historical license plate that did not show up in a computer check. Restored plates issued in the year a classic car was made are legal in Washington state.

The registration, which the couple provided to a trooper, shows the historical plate in a box called “equipment number.” The actual plate number is in another box. The trooper ran that number but he didn’t include a “plus” sign so it came back to the wrong vehicle.

That was error number one.

Error number two came when the trooper radioed the correct “vin” number of the car into dispatch. But the dispatcher entered the wrong number into the computer, and the erroneous number came back to a stolen car, similar to the one belonging to the couple.

The Bruins said they can understand an honest mistake, even two. What they don’t understand is why officers didn’t act on what appeared to be their own belief that the Bruins might be innocent victims.

As recorded by the dash camera, a trooper gets on the phone and tells his supervisor about Robin Bruins: “I tend to believe him. I mean I’m gonna run him before I make a determination … the guy comes back with possession … or a history of something like that. If he’s lying to me, that’s a different story. But, as of right now, I mean, he seems to be legit.”

Despite a clean criminal history check, Robin Bruins was hauled off to jail.NHP1

“I mean, he was on the phone with his supervisor, talked to other officers when they got there, talked to another officer at the detention center when I got there,” Robin Bruins said. “And they all agreed that I should be behind bars. And that is just incredible.”

The couple has since filed a lawsuit against the officers and head of the highway patrol for civil rights violations.

“Robin was not this, you know, car thief,” the couple’s lawyer Paola Armeni said. “They knew that.. And that’s repeatedly on the video. You can hear them questioning themselves. Yet they still chose to arrest him.”

I-Team: “You think it’s something you need, to send a message with litigation?”

Robin Bruins: “I mean, all they had to do is have one guy check what the dispatcher’s numbers were. And the whole situation wouldn’t have happened.”

Beverly Bruins: “I just think they should have used, that they should have used a character judgment. We live our lives so that we don’t get into situations like this.”

Robin Bruins: “To be treated like the both of us were, I mean, at gunpoint and then handcuffed and then humiliated by making you take your shirt.off and get on your knees on the side of the freeway. I mean, why should that have to happen to anybody?”

The I-Team sought comment from the highway patrol but agency spokeswoman Gail Powell wrote via email: “We are unable to discuss any specifics concerning on-going litigation matters.”

 

MSM Blackout! Eric Holder’s DOJ Implicated On Multiple Corruption Charges! In an extraordinary development, Judge England, Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, ordered the recusal of all the Eastern District judges from the case because of serious allegations that the Court itself was defrauded by the government in the original prosecution.

In perhaps the most stunning documentation yet of abuses by Eric Holder’s Justice Department, two former Assistant United States Attorneys spoke to defense attorneys and revealed appalling deceit and corruption of justice.

In perhaps the most stunning documentation yet of abuses by Eric Holder’s Justice Department, two former Assistant United States Attorneys spoke to defense attorneys and revealed appalling deceit and corruption of justice. This latest litigation time bomb has exploded from multi-million dollar litigation originally brought by the Department of Justice against Sierra Pacific based on allegations that the lumber company and related defendants were responsible for a wildfire that destroyed 65,000 acres in California.

In what was dubbed the “Moonlight Fire” case, the tables are now turned. The defendants have discovered new evidence and filed a stunning motion.

The new evidence and disclosures are being taken seriously by the Chief Judge of the Eastern District of California—as they should be. In a shocking action, Judge Morrison C. England Jr. ordered the recusal of every federal judge in the Eastern District of California.

Sierra Pacific Industries and other defendants were compelled to pay $55 million to the United States over a period of five years and transfer 22,500 acres of land to settle massive litigation brought against them by the United States alleging that they caused a 2007 fire that destroyed 65,000 acres in California.

Sierra Pacific has always maintained that the fire started elsewhere and that the state and federal investigators and Department attorneys lied.

Now that settlement may go up in smoke because of the new evidence of outrageous misconduct by the federal prosecutors and the investigators from state and federal offices, as well as findings earlier this year by a state judge.

In an extraordinary development, Judge Morrison C. England Jr., Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, ordered the recusal of all the Eastern District judges from the case because of serious allegations that the Court itself was defrauded by the government in the original prosecution.

To avoid any appearance of partiality, he has referred the case to Ninth Circuit Chief Judge Alex Kozinski to appoint a judge from outside the Eastern District to handle the case going forward.

Judge Kozinski has excoriated prosecutors for failing to meet their legal and ethical obligations.

 

 

 

Why every American should care about California’s Moonlight fire case

660-Moonlight-Fire.jpg

Smoke rises from the Moonlight fire, which burned in Plumas and Lassen counties in California for 22 days in September 2007. (Office of U.S. attorney)

Question: What happens when lawyers uncover what could be explosive evidence of misconduct in a $122 million case by attorneys in the Department of Justice?  Answer: the Department of Justice tries to have all defense lawyers who have even read about the alleged government misconduct removed from the case and gagged from discussing what they know.

What’s at stake here? In a word, justice, including the ability of many lawyers to continue to represent their clients.  And it is ultimately about our justice system—about the very rule of law.

This is not a hypothetical issue. It happened last month in a California federal court, where a local timber company is trying to pursue charges of fraud against federal prosecutors and investigators as well as win back millions in imposed penalties. The company has already won a major victory in California’s state court—which may be why the Department of Justice is trying so hard to make this case of allegedly profound prosecutorial abuse vanish.

A state audit lead to the discovery of piles of evidence that Cal Fire had hidden concerning the case–including an unauthorized, off-the-books “slush fund” that Cal Fire maintained for the profits of such actions.

The story starts on Labor Day weekend 2007, near Westwood, California, where a wildfire destroyed 65,000 acres of countryside.  Some 45,000 of those acres were national forest, and it cost millions for state and federal governments to extinguish the blaze. State and federal investigators and prosecutors set about to identify the cause and find someone to blame.

They quickly focused on a “deep pocket”—Sierra Pacific, a family-owned company that is the country’s second largest timber supplier and a huge local land-owner.

The government agencies decided that a bulldozer used by Sierra Pacific created a spark that started the blaze, and a massive litigation assault forced Sierra Pacific to sign a settlement of cash and land valued at  $122 million to end the federal litigation alone against it.  Sierra Pacific has already paid millions toward the settlement and transferred 1,500 acres of its valuable land to the feds.

But when push came to shove on a parallel state court case brought against Sierra Pacific by Cal Fire, the California investigative authority, it was the civil prosecution that went up in smoke.  A state audit lead to the discovery of piles of evidence that Cal Fire had hidden concerning the case–including an unauthorized, off-the-books “slush fund” that Cal Fire maintained for the profits of such actions.

California Judge Leslie C. Nichols found that Cal Fire “had engaged in the pervasive and systematic abuse of the California discovery rules” and “egregious” conduct affecting the integrity of the court itself.

He assessed $32 million in fees and court expenses against the state. Although the U.S. government was not a party to the state case, the U.S. Forest Service, Cal Fire and their attorneys had all worked together on the investigation and litigation under a joint prosecution agreement.

More was soon to come.  Former Assistant U.S, Attorney E. Robert Wright read the widely publicized orders of Judge Nichols, and on June 12, 2014 gave Sierra Pacific’s defense a 15-page sworn statement for use in the federal case against the timber firm. In it, he raised serious questions about possible suppression of evidence that would clear the company.

Sierra Pacific has now asked a federal court to set aside its $122 million settlement agreement because of fraud on the court—by the federal prosecutors and agents.  A federal judge has the case, and held his first hearing on its status on November 24. California Senior Federal District Judge William Shubb, himself a former U.S. Attorney, is reputedly a no-nonsense jurist who expects the government to follow the law—a novel and welcome application of Article III of our Constitution.

Shockingly, the Department of Justice moved to disqualify all of the defense attorneys who even read Robert Wright’s sworn declaration. The government asked the court to remove the entire defense team because Wright’s declaration contains confidential and privileged information belonging to the government.

The Department also claims that former Assistant United States Attorney Wright breached his duties of loyalty and confidentiality to his former client, the United States, by disclosing that the government may have been hiding evidence that undermined its case.  Calling Wright’s duty of loyalty to his client “absolute,” and his breach “inexcusable,” they claim that he should have brought any concern to the attention of his superiors.

Unfortunately for the government counsel, Assistant U.S. Attorney David Shelledy,  Sierra Pacific’s motion to set aside the judgment states that it did bring the entire problem to the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility—only to have the evidence of misconduct smothered as effectively as the evidence that someone less wealthy than Sierra Pacific had caused the original fire.

So far, Judge Shubb is not impressed.  He’s ignoring the Department’s motion to disqualify all the defense attorneys, and instead, requested more briefing on the real issues of government misconduct and possible fraud on the court.

A 1935 Supreme Court decision entitled Berger v. United States enshrines the notion that U.S.  Attorneys are representatives “not of an ordinary party to a controversy, but of a sovereignty” whose interest is not “that it shall win a case, but that justice shall be done.”

If so, perhaps Assistant U.S. Attorney Shelledy will wind up disqualified. Specifically named in Wright’s affidavit and implicated in possibly improper ethical decisions, he has a glaring conflict of interest.  Why is he still involved in pleadings for the United States?

Fraud on the court infects our entire judicial system and renders public confidence impossible.  What happens in Judge Shubb’s Sacramento federal courtroom will matter to all Americans.

News Censorship: Massive Fraud In California Federal Court Exposed By Judge, Going Unreported

eric holderCorrupt federal prosecutors presenting false evidence in order to shake down a blameless company and bring in tens of millions of dollars seems like a pretty dramatic story. Especially when former prosecutors support the charge and a chief judge acts on the allegations and takes dramatic action. Yet the media silence is deafening.Eric Holder’s Justice Department is implicated in a dramatic and shocking case of alleged corruption that is so bad that the Chief Judge of the Eastern District of California has taken what can rightly be called the “nuclear option” and recused all the judges in the district from the case because they may have been defrauded by the DoJ prosecutors.
So far, aside from the local paper, the Sacramento Bee, it is only Sidney Powell of the New York Observer, writing in the opinion pages of that publication that has paid attention to what should be a prominent national media scandal. In brief, the Sierra Pacific Industries, a lumber producer, was accused by the federal government of starting a large wildfire, and fined $55 million, and compelled to hand over title to 22,500 acres of land. The only problem is that the prosecution was allegedly corrupt, and knowingly submitted false evidence.In an extraordinary development, Judge England, Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, ordered the recusal of all the Eastern District judges from the case because of serious allegations that the Court itself was defrauded by the government in the original prosecution. To avoid any appearance of partiality, he has referred the case to Ninth Circuit Chief Judge Alex Kozinski to appoint a judge from outside the Eastern District to handle the case going forward. Judge Kozinski has excoriated prosecutors for failing to meet their legal and ethical obligations.The order notes that the defendants filed an action this week to set aside the $55 million settlement because, as the defendants allege, “the United States presented false evidence to the Defendants and the Court; advanced arguments to the Court premised on that false evidence; or, for which material evidence had been withheld, and obtaining court rulings based thereon; prepared key Moonlight Fire investigators for depositions, and allowed them to repeatedly give false testimony about the most important aspects of their investigation;

The Sacramento Bee reported on the Defendant’s filing. Indeed, the Defendants’ motion informs us that a former Assistant United States Attorney came forward and disclosed that he believes that he was removed from the original prosecution by “his boss, David Shelledy, chief of the civil division in the United States Attorney’s office,” because he “rebuffed” pressure to “engage in unethical conduct as a lawyer.” What punishment has Shelledy received?, like other former prosecutors who were unethical, Mr. Shelledy is to receive Attorney General Holder’s highest award for excellence—this week.

The Scandals at Justice
Did Justice “steamroll the truth” in attempt to extort a settlement?

Attorney general Eric Holder (Alex Wong/Getty)
It is well known in legal circles that Eric Holder’s Justice Department has become so politicized, so unprincipled, and so ethically shoddy that Loretta Lynch, President Obama’s appointee to replace Holder, had to assure senators at her confirmation hearing that she was not Eric Holder.

Lynch was properly grilled on her views on immigration enforcement, executive orders, and terrorist prosecutions. But so far no senator has dug deep into some of the most abusive cases that Justice has filed, and asked why lower-case justice hasn’t been done.

One of the most notorious is Justice’s role in California’s “Moonlight Fire,” a conflagration on Labor Day 2007 that burned 20,000 acres of state forest in the Sierra Nevada along with 45,000 acres of federal forest. The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection decided that Sierra Pacific Industries, a family-owned company that is the nation’s second-largest timber supplier, was responsible for the damage. Government investigators claim the blade of one of the company’s bulldozers hit a rock, creating a spark that started the blaze. Sierra Pacific pointed out clear holes in that theory, but Cal Fire nonetheless fined the timber company $8 million to pay for related costs. Because the fire burned more than 40,000 acres of national forest, the federal government also went after Sierra Pacific; in 2012, after five years of litigation, Sierra Pacific reluctantly agreed to a settlement that entailed paying the feds $4 million and giving Uncle Sam 22,500 acres of forest land.

But since then, there has been discovery in the related state lawsuit, which has uncovered a shocking claim of dereliction of duty: that Justice’s prosecutors “sat on their hands” and allowed fire investigators to frame Sierra Pacific. The possible motive? Sierra had deep pockets, and any settlement would create substantial revenue. In the state’s case, a substantial chunk of the money would go to an off-the-books slush fund run by Cal Fire, in which some of its official investigators had interests.The misconduct was so egregious that California Superior Court judge Leslie Nichols threw out the state’s case. Last year, he further ruled that the government’s case was “corrupt and tainted. Cal Fire failed to comply with discovery obligations, and its repeated failure was willful.” The judge charged that the state hid key photographs and tried to “steamroll the truth” in order to pin the fire on the company. Investigators lied under oath about what they knew, and federal prosecutors allegedly knew about their perjury and did nothing.” When Sierra Pacific lawyers questioned the bulldozer driver, he denied making a statement about the blaze’s origins, and he couldn’t have properly signed a document given to him by prosecutors because he can’t read. The U.S. Forest Service had evidence that one of its fire spotters may have been high on pot and missed the fire’s start. His supervisor wanted to fire him, but the supervisor’s superiors covered it all up by insisting the spotter get a satisfactory performance rating and stay on the job.

“The misconduct in this case is so pervasive,” Judge Nichols wrote, “that it would serve no purpose to attempt to recite it all here.”

Nichols also didn’t spare the office of California Attorney General Kamala Harris, now a candidate for Barbara Boxer’s U.S. Senate seat and a national Democratic star. Nichols wrote that he can recall “no instance in experience over 47 years as an advocate and a judge, in which the conduct of the Attorney General so thoroughly departed from the high standard it represents, and, in every other instance has exemplified.” Judge Nichols then ordered the state to pay Sierra Pacific a whopping $32 million in damages and expenses. Cal Fire denies any wrongdoing, while the offices of Harris and Governor Jerry Brown aren’t talking.

The Nichols ruling prompted Sierra Pacific to enter federal court, charging fraud, and to demand that its settlement money be returned. Ben Wagner, the U.S. Attorney responsible for the federal case, insists there is no fire behind all the smoke of a legal coverup, but he hasn’t properly explained why Robert Wright, his top assistant in charge of fire litigation, was removed from the Moonlight Fire case after he stated that he believed it was his duty to disclose material seriously damaging to the government’s case. In fact, Wright was removed by his immediate boss, David Shelledy, because he was honest and would not have gone along with the program. Wagner defends his subordinate Shelledy in part by noting that he was recently given an award for distinguished service by Eric Holder. Color me less than impressed.

Another federal prosecutor, Eric Overby, left the Midnight Fire probe in 2011 because he was shocked at the conduct of his colleagues. In Sierra Pacific’s brief he is quoted as saying: “In my entire career, yes, my entire career, I have never seen anything like this. Never.” He says that as he left he told his colleagues: “It’s called the Department of Justice. It’s not called the Department of Revenue.”

Justice’s response to Sierra Pacific’s demand for its money back has been to demand that U.S. District Judge William Shubb order the removal from the case of all of the company’s lawyers who have even read Robert Wright’s sworn declaration, a document that Justice says includes privileged information. Justice says Wright’s whistleblowing is “inexcusable.”

What’s inexcusable is that Justice has ignored the message of a 1935 Supreme Court opinion that ruled that Justice’s interest is not “that it shall win a case, but that Justice shall be done.” In 2013, Chief Judge Alex Kozinski of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which includes California, noted that an epidemic of prosecutorial abuse is “abroad in the land”; “Only judges,” he said, “can put a stop it it.”

Not quite right. It should be the responsibility of Loretta Lynch, the likely new attorney general, to address the excesses and ethical breaches in the Justice Department. And it is the responsibility of senators who will vote on her confirmation to go beyond the headline issues of immigration and terrorism and ask her some serious and probing questions about the Moonlight Fire fiasco and other troubling cases on Justice’s plate.

Court: Nevada should say what’s in prison food; Corrupt Sheriff Kenny Furlong says Carson Shitty is OK “We just feed inmates shit and poison”

The Carson City jail charges inmates about $1.09 for a “Top Ramen” soup. About 100 times the cost the CCSO pays for it. Can you say RICO?

Fuck You Kenny Furlong you feed the inmates shit. It’s well documented your jail provides meals that are well below the nutrition and calories mandated by law. On occasion you have your cronies put drugs in the food for “special inmates”… Furlong can eat his own shit and die. Furlong is a treasonous prick.

Kenny FurlongLAS VEGAS — A convicted pedophile’s complaint about Nevada prison food has the state Supreme Court ordering an accounting of what’s in unnamed sack lunches and “chef’s choice” dinners given to inmates, and whether the meals are healthful.

A strongly worded ruling by a three-judge panel declared it isn’t enough for the top state health officer, Dr. Tracey Green, to simply state that prisoners aren’t malnourished.

“Green’s report does not detail what foods are being served to inmates … much less provide any explanation of how these unidentified foods provide inmates with a nutritionally adequate diet,” the court said after reviewing Green’s 2011 report to the Board of Prison Commissioners.

 

Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong said his department essentially already complies with the ruling.

See: Carson City Sheriff putting drugs/methadone in the Carson City jail water/food

jail foodFurlong said the jail kitchen already monitors the nutritional content of meals served to prisoners.

He said the Supreme court ruling hasn’t, at this point, reached down to his jail.

“But if they were to ask for it, we would comply,” he said.

Furlong said the jail kitchen already handles a variety of nutritional needs for prisoners with allergies or conditions that restrict their diets such as diabetes.

In short, he said, his staff already has the necessary nutritional information to provide if asked.

top ramen

Carson City jail charges inmates about $1.09 for a “Top Ramen” soup. About 100 times the cost the CCSO pays for it.

Green, head of the Nevada Division of Behavioral and Public Health, said in a statement Thursday that since 2011, her annual inspections of prison sanitation, healthfulness, cleanliness, safety, diet and food preparation were up-do-date.

She said reports in the past “would only reflect deficient practices rather than demonstrate areas of compliance,” and said her state Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance “plans to better document how the review takes place.”

“The chief medical officer will continue to comply with law and any additional direction from the district court,” the statement said.

State prisons are required to provide inmates with a “healthful diet.”

Prisons also must account for religious and medical diets, and the age, sex and activity level of inmates.

But justices Michael Cherry, Michael Douglas and James Hardesty said in their Dec. 31 order that Green “fell well short” in the 2011 report of meeting her obligation.

“There is nothing in the report to even indicate that Green or her staff actually examined the diets,” the opinion said.

The justices added the report said a dietitian who reviewed menus for nutritional adequacy had never been to Lovelock Correctional Center, where plaintiff Robert Leslie Stockmeier is housed.

Green’s report “included no analysis of the diets of general population inmates, addressed diets at only one of Nevada’s correctional facilities, and generally lacked any indication as to how the required examination was conducted,” the justices said.

Stockmeier, 46, is serving two consecutive life sentences after pleading guilty in 1990 to sexually assaulting a 9-year-old boy.

He has been denied parole several times, and has filed at least 25 appeals and complaints with the state Supreme Court. He serves as his own lawyer.

The three-justice panel sent Stockmeier’s civil complaint back to Carson City District Court, where it had been dismissed, with instructions that the judge require Green to comply with state law and report twice a year on the prison diet’s nutritional adequacy.

A February 2010 menu that Stockmeier provided the court described every lunch offering as “sacks” and certain dinners as “chef’s choice,” with no information about nutritional value, the justices said.

As of Dec. 31, Nevada had nearly 12,800 inmates at seven prisons and 10 conservation camps, plus a restitution center and a transitional housing center.

The Department of Corrections budget for 2013-15 was $487 million, down $9 million from the previous two-year budget period.

Nevada prisons budgeted $11.7 million for food in fiscal 2014 and $11.8 million in fiscal 2015, according to the state Legislative Counsel Bureau. Not counting staff time, and if the prison population has been consistent, the state spends an average of less than $925 on food per inmate per year.

A “thrifty” adult aged 19 to 50 in the United States spent about $187 on food in November, according to a U.S. Department of Agriculture report. That averages a little less than $2,250 a year or 2½ times the Nevada prison food budget.

NFL football Hall of Famer O.J. Simpson also is housed at Lovelock, in northern Nevada.

Now 67, Simpson is serving nine to 33 years on armed robbery and kidnapping charges in a 2007 confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas hotel. He’ll be eligible for parole in 2017.

 

Complaints against judges across the state are rising, but the Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline is having a tough time keeping up.

Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline Executive Director Paul Deyhle.

By JEFF GERMAN

Complaints against judges across the state are rising, but the Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline is having a tough time keeping up.

Executive Director Paul Deyhle said the commission lacks modern-day resources, manpower and in some instances authority to handle the growing caseload.

The backlog is the result of years of being underfunded and ignored within state government, he said.

This past year, the seven-member commission spent $183,300 — more than three-quarters of its budget — pursuing a single disciplinary action against former Family Court Judge Steven Jones, who fought the panel every step of the way.

For its efforts, the commission ended up giving Jones a three-month suspension without pay over his mishandling of a romantic relationship with a prosecutor who appeared before him.bad judge

It took the federal government to get Jones off the bench. He resigned in September as part of a deal with federal prosecutors to plead guilty to a felony in a decade-long $2.6 million investment scheme.

Deyhle has big plans to get the struggling commission what it needs to go after errant judges like Jones in the future.

“We’re trying to bring the office back into the 21st century,” said Deyhle, who has been at its helm since November 2013. “Not much has been done for the commission in many, many years. It’s time.”

During a time of fiscal restraint, Deyhle has requested a 40-percent increase in his new two-year budget, bringing it up to $902,971. He wants to add an associate general counsel and a management analyst and take other long-overdue measures to improve the commission’s daily operations.

The commission, which received roughly 225 complaints against judges this year, has had only three full-time staffers, including Deyhle, to process those cases. Deyhle has doubled as general counsel.

The new hires would eliminate the frequent need to pay expensive private lawyers to handle disciplinary cases and move the cases along quicker, Deyhle said.

His budget request also includes money to replace outdated computers and software and a telephone system installed in 1987 that can’t be updated.judge tatro scandals

It allows for the purchase of a new Internet server to store and protect commission documents, along with a new electronic case management system that should have been installed years ago. The current system isn’t supported by the manufacturer, which is no longer in business.

Deyhle said he also hopes to use the additional funds to provide more ethics training to judges around the state.

One of his bigger priorities is finding a new and larger office in Carson City. The current office is in a building with no other state agencies and sits next to a fitness center. At times during the day, the walls shake from the impact of the fitness classes and their blaring music, Deyhle said.tatro corrupt

The office is so cramped that case files have to be stacked in boxes along the walls in public view. Supplies are stored in the bathroom, and there is no conference room or place for visitors to sit, he said.

Commissioners also are forced to conduct confidential conference calls from a common office area at a staffer’s desk with the help of a plastic folding table, he added.

Deyhle’s push to beef up the office also includes seeking financial help from the Nevada Legislature in the case of an emergency.

JUDGE TATROHe has submitted a bill draft that would give the judicial commission an opportunity to draw money from a state contingency fund if it finds itself short of operating cash because of another high-profile case like the one involving Jones.

Another bill draft would more clearly define the commission’s ability to take certain action against judges and expand its authority to remove a judge without pay.

Over the past several months, Deyhle has been working hard behind the scenes lobbying for the changes.

“We’re trying to improve the operational efficiency of the office,” he said. “We’re trying to effect a positive change, so the commission can better carry out its constitutional and statutory mandates. It’s not unreasonable.”

KRNV/MyNEWS4 -On Your Side: Government Corruption and the Shroud of secrecy surrounds medical marijuana businesses

RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) — Finding out who have been selected winners and losers of Nevada’s budding medical marijuana business, and why, has turned out to be almost impossible.

See the video here: http://www.mynews4.com/mostpopular/story/On-Your-Side-Shroud-of-secrecy-surrounds-medical/ApzFxrEqb02IAGrPdx434g.cspx

pot slotsNews 4’s On Your Side team believes Nevadans have a right to know who is going to be opening up shop and providing people with safe products.

When the state released its list of the companies authorized to take part in the medical marijuana business, we wanted to know one thing: how did the state make the decision? Thanks to a state regulation that protects medical marijuana applicants and their investors, the whole process has been clouded under a shroud of secrecy, far from transparent. culture-of-corruption

The questions remain: who set it up this way, and why? It has been weeks of phone calls, e-mails, and interviews, all aimed at trying to get more information on the state’s process to license medical marijuana business applicants.

We started at the Division of Public and Behavioral Health. Chad Westom is a Bureau Chief, and the head of the Medical Marijuana program.

“We do not write the laws,” explained Westom. “We did not write this law, but we do carry out what is required.”

Westom is referring to NRS 453a.700, the medical marijuana law passed in 2001. “It states the Division and our designees must maintain the confidentiality and shall not disclose the contents of any application record or any written documentation that the Division or designees credits or receives pursuant to this chapter,” said Westom.

But when that was written, it was referring to medical marijuana patients, and their application, not the application of cultivators or dispensary owners. Westom confirmed that the Attorney General was consulted on this regulation.

Westom also stated applicants could sign a disclosure form that would let the state release the name of the company and how many points it scored during the ranking process. But even with some companies doing that, the public still does not have access to basic information on ownership, backgrounds, and business practices.

“We’ve had legal review from the Attorney General’s office all along the way,” Westom said.

News 4 contacted Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto’s office to ask how she interpreted the law for the division. She declined to go on camera, but in an email sent by her staff, she noted that it was the Health Division who adopted NAC 453a.714, a regulation which makes the information confidential.

We made several calls to the 12 members of the Legislative Commission who approved that regulation on March 28. Only one, Assemblyman Jason Frierson, called back, but did not remember specifically discussing the regulation.

The Legislative Council Bureau said the Nevada Health Board proposed the regulation to the Legislative Commission, but a Health Board member said he did not recall that, and referred me back to the Health Division and Richard Whitley, an administrator at the Division of Public and Behavioral Health.

Whitley has not return our call, but we were sent to a Public Information Officer. A week ago, an e-mail was sent, asking who proposed the idea of a completely confidential process and why? On Wednesday, we received an email from Pam Graber, the Public Information Officer at the Division of Public and Behavioral Health.

The e-mail said that Senator Tick Segerblom, who crafted the orignal medicial marijuana bill, set up the criteria for the ranking results, with the help of the division.

But she is refusing to tell the public the names and backgrounds of the taxpayer-paid panelists that decided the winners and losers in Nevada’s medical marijuana business. She is also refusing to release the specific formula, or rubrick, that these people used to rank the businesses.

The biggest question still remains: who originated the complete confidentiality of the state regulation that is keeping all this information secret?

News 4’s On Your Side will be continuing to cover this story, and will keep you posted as we learn more.

Carson City Judge James E. Wilson really screwed up this time!

I have my motion in to strike as untimely filed. The attorney general’s office Reply and request for submission was due on September 2, 2014.

They did not file their Reply until September 5, 2014. And their Request for submission on the motion for judgment on the pleadings until September 8, 2014

The first judicial district court rule 15 (4), 15 (5), 15( 6). Shows they were late.

Judge James Wilson has my Motion And I will file my Motion for Reconsideration too

The judge in my case dismissed as to rule 15 (5). I didn’t file the motion in time Rule 15 (5) as being late.

Rule 15 (4) 15(6) states that either parties can file I request for submission, upon the expiration of the reply the request for submission must be filed. They were late. She is an attorney and I not

I always do, however, this time the printing place did not print it off for me. I filed over 500 documents with my Opposition that showed the defendants breached the terms of the settlement agreement after it was signed and continue to do so now. My request for submission didn’t get printed off and I believed it was. That was until I received their request for submission on September 9, 2014. Then I realized my request did not get filed so I file it on September 10, 2014

The judge cited the rule for being late. The ag’s office was late first so based in the judges ruling for dismissing my case as being late it should hold true for the ag’s office.

I had motions still pending that showed the ag’s office interfered with a. Complaint I filed with the ag’s office in September on a violation of the open meeting law that one of the defendants if not all blocked anyone from my public documents that showed the computer glitch audit was flawed

The ag that got my complaint talked to the ag representing the defendants in my breach of settlement agreement and told him that those documents I posted o the record that were blocked were confidential records per settlement agreement. They were not! This ag interfered with me getting my Discovery and my complaint

CC POLITICS: Amazingly enough, the Nevada Appeal interview of the candidates for Carson City District Attorney revealed…nothing we didn’t already know. Although both candidates spoke to the high turnover of personnel in the DA’s office, Mark Kruger spoke to personnel seeking “better” jobs elsewhere for reasons of higher pay and broader opportunities, while Jason Woodbury focused on a poor work environment and leadership issues.

LAWYERING UP

Amazingly enough, the Nevada Appeal interview of the candidates for Carson City District Attorney revealed…nothing we didn’t already know. Although both candidates spoke to the high turnover of personnel in the DA’s office, Mark Kruger spoke to personnel seeking “better” jobs elsewhere for reasons of higher pay and broader opportunities, while Jason Woodbury focused on a poor work environment and leadership issues.

Almost comical was Kruger stating that Woodbury seemed to be running against Neil Rombardo instead of him. Perhaps hoping that none of us will remember that it was Rombardo’s letter to the Appeal defending Kruger that gives the appearance of Kruger not running his own race. To his credit, most of the personnel issues occurred prior to Kruger’s tenure; however, Kruger’s website is bereft of substance that he can call his own.

On the subject of poor relations between the DA’s office and Public Defender’s office, both spoke to the importance of improvement. Under Rombardo, Kruger may well have been unable to change much and he’s spoken little to the issue. In contrast, Woodbury believes this is a problem which needs addressing and intends to do so.

While Kruger talked of improved cohesiveness within the DA’s office due to training efforts and a team approach to legal work, Woodbury still sees room for improvement. Woodbury also mentioned the need to provide sound legal advice to the Board of Supervisors, something that has obviously been lacking in recent contracts.

Being relatively evenly matched for legal experience though from different sides of the aisle, both have the skills to do the job. Having said that, Kruger seemed focused on finding fault with Woodbury while Woodbury spoke to the issues of the DA’s office though still noting improvements under Rombardo’s leadership.

In the conclusion, the Appeal objectively offered no differences or choice between the candidates. While one (Kruger) represents the perspective of a longtime government prosecutor, the other (Woodbury) comes from private practice in hopes of bringing positive change to Carson City. Even if motivation was the only factor, a candidate that wants change versus one that focuses on personalities makes this an easy choice.

4 THOUGHTS ON “LAWYERING UP”

WALTER OCTOBER 15, 2014 AT 8:42 PM
Although much of the turnover in the DA’s office took place before Krueger came, many employees have left since Krueger has been on board. I would challenge anyone to show me an instance where a young attorney just starting out can go to the AGs office and make more money in that office, as opposed to working for a county or city. Anyone in public service, and especially for the state, knows working for a county or city usually brings better pay and benefits. I think Krueger botched that explanation.

Krueger and Rombardo seem to be a package deal. To me, it seems as if Rombardo should have ran for re-election if he was so concerned about who his successor was going to be. Maybe Rombardo now realizes getting a job in this competitive job market isn’t so easy and is hopeful Krueger will win it all else fails. His constant campaigning for Krueger makes you wonder.

If Krueger really was about change and making his own way, he would encourage Rombardo to refrain from the negative campaigning and name calling on his behalf. Personally, the mudslinging turns me off. I’d like to know who Krueger and Rombardo get along with in their profession on a daily basis. From reading the local papers as the campaign season has progressed, the DA’s office has trouble getting along with other entities, and Woodbury’s endorsements support this view. The carson city Sheriff’s supervisory association has endorsed Woodbury, along with many of the private attorneys and defense attorneys in the area. Rombardo and Krueger seem to have adverse relationships with most except themselves. I don’t see how they are able to get anything done if they can’t work together with others. Maybe such is the reason for the high turnover rate in the office? Again, makes you wonder.

Krueger has done little to separate himself from Rombardo, which leads me to believe Rombardo is controlling Krueger’s campaign to some extent.

Woodbury has listed his endorsement on his webpage. Many of us are still waiting to hear who has endorsed Krueger. Maybe instead of being so negative in his campaign pitch, Krueger should tell us who his endorsements are and how he will do things differently than what he’s done over the last 2 years.

Before Neil Rombardo became DA, Noel Waters was DA in Carson City for 21 years. He hired both Neil Rombardo and Jason Woodbury to be deputy DA’s under his watch. I read a letter in the opinion section of carsonnow.org that Mr. Waters wrote in support of Jason Woodbury for DA. He had some shocking information regarding both Rombardo and Krueger. I would encourage anyone on the fence about who to vote for in this election to read what Mr. Waters wrote.

Krueger isn’t the great attorney he claims to be, and Mr. Waters uses court cases and hard facts to confirm this.

In contrast, Rombardo, on the same blog, wrote a letter in favor of a Krueger where he really showed his true colors. He had no supporting documents or facts to support his claims. It seems as if neither Rombardo or a Krueger has any respect for anyone but themselves. They have attacked any and everyone they could, including Carson Tahoe hospital, the Public Defender’s Office, and other Woodbury endorsers, to make Woodbury look bad. Maybe these guys don’t get it. If they attack everyone out there, it doesn’t leave very many votes left for Krueger.

THOMAS W. OCTOBER 16, 2014 AT 4:33 AM
After reading Rombardo’s letter supporting Krueger for DA, it seemed like it was more emotion driven than anything else. I guess I expected a better piece of writing from a sitting DA, and especially Rombardo since he comes across as overly confident in himself and his abilities. The letter seemed hurried, and not proof-read due to the grammatical and punctuation errors I observed throughout the piece. Maybe Rombardo should have taken more time to write a more clear and concise support letter, especially since his main goal seemed to be putting the letter out there for public consumption.

Many might say the letter was rushed, thus the reason for the rant-filled content. I beg to differ. Anyone following the David Stone trial (the trial Krueger just prosectuted and got a conviction for last Friday evening minutes before Rombardo posted his letter) knows the verdict came back and was given roughly between 6:30-7:00 PM on Friday October,10. Rombardo’s letter was posted to Carsonnow.org on the same date at 7:19 PM, some 30-45 minutes AFTER the verdict was given. That leads me to believe the letter was already prepared and ready to go, even befotr the verdict was given. So, a premeditated support letter for Krueger from his current boss, and that is the best penmanship Rombardo could display. Wow. Just wow.

Doing what’s best for Nevada

Ross Miller Nevada is corrupt

Ross Miller Nevada is corrupt

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

judge tatro

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

A brief summary of this case.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Mark Krueger loses debate for Carson City DA gig – Jason Woodbury leads race for next DA

A CASE FOR A LAWYER

“If there were no bad people, there would be no good lawyers.” –Charles Dickens

Last night, the League of Women Voters of Northern Nevada hosted another “debate” forum, this time for the candidates for Carson City District Attorney. Mark Kruger, currently a Deputy District Attorney, and Jason Woodbury, coming out of private practice to run for the first time for public office. Attendance was light and with only two candidates on deck, the session was over rather quickly. The League, once again, demonstrated that it knows how to get things done and this forum was no exception.

The DA Actions Starts here: http://youtu.be/-Xi9Zmdg5Mg?t=16m27s

Introductions began with Woodbury outlining his background which you’ve already seen here, and then proceeded to his top three issues: Retention of high quality personnel and the high personnel turnover rate at the DA’s office which he believes is indicative of larger issues; delayed prosecutions for which he would “claim ownership” and only grant delays when absolutely necessary; and lastly renew and strictly adhere to the Open Meeting Law.

Kruger also provided his background and outlined his recent trial history and attributes. His three issues were: Expand victim witness programs including the recently touted dog program; decried Woodbury’s backing by defense attorneys who he claimed were responsible for the delays in trials; and then never really got to a third point while rambling over topics like services and saving taxpayers money. If this event were scored, the majority of points would have to go to Woodbury. His delivery was forceful, his points clear, and he provided specific measures he would implement to fix issues both candidates identified.

Kruger’s delivery was less confident and concise, though his experience as a trial attorney was clearly evident. One felt as if the audience was a jury and he was making closing arguments on a weak case.

When it came to audience questions, the first focused on the significant delays in child cases requiring victims to tell their story repeatedly. The author pointed to the Washoe County advocate programs as a successful model. Kruger claimed extensive experience with child abuse cases and with child advocacy programs but stated it requires a community effort and he would “reach out to the community” for this type of support. Woodbury stated that “we need to be realistic on what to expect” and went on to explain that Carson City lacks the resources to create a specific center but did have multiple resources capable of addressing the issues faced by victims. He went on to state that the DA’s Office needed to recognize that repeatedly postponing trials re-victimizes the victims.

Mark Krueger Carson City, Nevada

Mark Krueger Carson City, Nevada

This round went to Woodbury though he didn’t claim experience in working these types of cases, he was a clear proponent of effectively using existing resources as opposed to Kruger’s ambiguous “reaching out to the community.”

mark kruegerOn the subject of marijuana laws, both candidates spoke to the ambiguity of the effectiveness of treatment programs as well as the probability of changes in the law. Woodbury argued that strict enforcement of existing law was the essential. Kruger spoke to driving under the influence and strict enforcement of criminal law through aggressive prosecution to keep the community safe. No clear winner on this topic; its uncharted water for Nevada and certainly for Carson City.

Responding to a question about the open meeting law and the ability for the City Manger to hold meeting outside of the law. Kruger went first and explained that the law was clear but then failed to explain it clearly. He stated he was a proponent of the law and recited his experience in applying it. Woodbury spoke specifically to establishing training efforts to ensure City personnel understand the meeting law and then explained the need for meetings to occur to provide essential information. This round goes to…no one. You’ll have to watch the video if you’re looking for a better answer.

Regarding the need for a State Court of Appeals, Woodbury sated he was personally opposed because existing procedures within the court system could provide the relief the Superior Court desires. Kruger waffled around in coming an answer but came down to “I don’t know.” Given that the victor of this race will have to appear before judges affected by the results of the ballot question, this is likely a fair outcome but Woodbury gets points for both knowing the issue and having the guts air his personal viewpoint.

On a question of the factors influencing a death penalty case, Kruger gave us a class on the balance of aggravating and mitigating factors being the sole legal question. In contrast, Woodbury came out specifically in favor of the death penalty but emphasized that capital trials are extremely expensive and Carson City is not prepared to expend this kind of money without good reason. Woodbury also emphasized the need to ensure the victim’s family understands that the punishment is rarely actually carried out; criminals are more likely to die of natural causes rather than at the hands of the State.

On the highly charged issue of the Carson Tahoe Hospital declining to provide rape kits and exams for rape victims, Woodbury responded that the hospital’s decision “alarmed” him. He went on to explain that he had followed up by contacting the nursing leadership at the hospital. What he says he found out was that the hospital felt there were not enough cases to keep a nurse on staff with the specialized skills required to perform the exams and that other viable alternatives existed. Kruger claims there are nurses in the area with the skills to conduct the exams but that for unknown reasons (most likely money), the hospital doesn’t want to do them. Sadly, Kruger believes Carson City does have a sufficient number of cases to warrant having the exams done locally but did not provide an solution or an answer to the question.

In closing, Kruger spoke again of his experience and that he would like the opportunity to expand the victim’s services program while revising the efficiency of the DA’s Office. Woodbury concluded by saying he has no other career aspirations outside of becoming DA and he feels he is doing the right thing by standing up for the community, one he sincerely believes in.

As we’ve come to expect during this race, there was little in the way of controversy or fireworks. Both candidates appeared sincere in their belief that they are the best man for the job. Reading between the lines, Kruger leaned heavily on the fact that he’s already in the DA’s Office and his experience there somehow makes him the heir apparent. In sometimes stark contrast, Woodbury emphasized repeatedly that the status quo wasn’t working; for victims, for justice, for staff, or the taxpayers. Notably, he made the effort to get answers from Carson Tahoe Hospital whereas his opponent simply stated he didn’t know the reasons for the hospital’s decisions. There was little doubt that Woodbury easily claimed the high ground during the forum and Kruger was out-done, sometimes simply due to his lack of effort. This race still isn’t as volatile as the two for Supervisor and though it really isn’t as “dull as dirt.” Maybe it should be. Yes, we’re looking for someone to fix the personnel and policy issues at the DA’s Office but more importantly, we’re looking for a champion of justice. Kruger has the experience but Woodbury has the fire. One believes that his years of service make him “next” and one is leaving (an assumed lucrative) private practice to “do the right thing.” Passion isn’t often appreciated in most courtrooms but in a candidate, it’s an admirable quality. Other things being essentially equal, Woodbury brought the most to the debate and brings the most to Carson City.

Steven Jones the Crooked Federal “judge” from Nevada heads straight to public retirement pension

When Steven Jones is sitting in prison (and I’m pretty sure the despicable abuse of his judicial powers will persuade a federal judge he’s unworthy of probation), don’t feel too sorry for him.

He probably won’t have money woes when he gets out. While he’s pumping iron behind bars, he can rest assured he might be able to get up to 75 percent of his $200,000 a year salary as a judicial pension, at least at some point.

That’s the way the system works. A pension is an earned benefit, so you can be a teacher convicted of molesting children or a police officer convicted of drug charges or a corrupt judge exploiting people, but you still get your pension.

They can’t take that away from you. Nevada Corruption

“We don’t have a provision in the law allowing forfeiture,” said Tina Leiss, executive officer of Nevada’s Public Employees Retirement System. In the 12 years she has been with the system, no Nevada lawmaker has tried to change that, but she said one reason is that there are issues with the InternalRevenue Service that would complicate taking away a pension someone earned during their working days.

The PERS system is so complex that estimating how much Jones will get is nothing more than guesswork, and Leiss is not allowed to tell. There are many variables. He could be in PERS, or he could have gone with the Judicial Retirement System. He could pay a penalty of about 4 percent a year and take it early because he’s 56. But then once he takes his pension, he’s guaranteed a boost of more than 4 percent each year.

Nevada corruption

Nevada corruption

But it’s possible he could get up to $150,000 a year to live on, plus those annual increases, so he won’t be living in poverty when he get out.

For years, angry callers asked me whether public employees continue to receive their salaries when they are charged with felonies and not working. Payment for no work doesn’t sit well with taxpayers. But they get even angrier when they learn that convicted criminals who are public employees retain their lifetime pensions despite their convictions.

Pay attention to these numbers: Jones publicly admitted last week he participated in a scheme that defrauded 22 people out of $1.2 million over a 10-year period.

Jones used his charms to provide credibility to his ex-brother-in-law Thomas Cecrle, the brains of the Big Con. As the plea bargain he signed said, Jones’ role was to use his position as judge to meet with at least one victim both in his chambers and in the parking lot of the courthouse.

Jones vouched for that Cecrle needed a short-term loan to buy water rights worth hundreds of millions. And the lucky victims, er, investors, would make loads of money if they would only help Cecrle.

When Cecrle wrote bad checks to repay one victim, the judge used his powers to have Cecrle released on his own recognizance in March 2006. He told at least one victim that Cecrle’s project was lucrative and he would help him complete the project in any way he could.

In 2007, Jones accepted cash from a victim in the Family Court parking lot wearing his robes. Cecrle couldn’t do it because he was in custody. Jones said he was traveling. Not so.

Change of plea hearings lack the drama of sentencing. Jones gave short answers of “Yes” and “I do” as he waived his rights to a trial. There were a handful of supporters present in the courtroom. His former girlfriend Lisa Willardson might have been there if she hadn’t died of a prescription drug overdose Dec. 26. She always said Jones was a fine man, who took care of his ailing mother, who was innocent of wrongdoing. Willardson’s death occurred after the Nevada Judicial Commission found he violated the code of ethics by allowing her to appear before him when they were dating.

U.S. District Judge Jennifer Dorsey abandoned the courtesy of calling him “Judge Jones.” Even though he hadn’t formally resigned the job he had held since his election in 1992, she addressed him as “Mister Jones.” He resigned his position later than day. He had been on leave with pay since he was indicted in November 2012, except for three months, a paltry penalty ordered by the Nevada Judicial Discipline Commission for unethical behavior regarding Willardson.

Based on his betrayal of his judicial oaths, Jones didn’t deserve any courtesy title. When Dorsey sentences him Jan. 26, Dorsey will show how seriously she views the ex-Family Court judge’s actions.

Prosecutors agreed not to argue for more than 27 months in prison, the low end of sentencing guidelines, one of the incentives to get him to plead and avoid the cost of a trial. Otherwise, he faced up to 20 years in prison if convicted by a jury. The judge will decide the amount of restitution he must pay victims.

When Dorsey sentences Jones on one count of conspiring to commit wire fraud, she won’t be able to take into account past allegations that Jones, a large man, abused a girlfriend. Those charges were dismissed in 2006 when the girlfriend recanted, saying she should be blamed for her injuries because she was an alcoholic.

Reading the admissions in Jones’ plea bargain should be enough to revolt Dorsey. They certainly revolted me.

NAG MASTO wants “kill switch” on cell phones for her “police state”

nag masto signBy Dennis Myers
dennism@newsreview.com

Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto’s office is drafting legislation to require “kill switches” on cell phones sold in the state. The switch allows the owner to remotely disable the phone if it is stolen, creating a disincentive for thieves, but it also allows others—such as the police—to do the same.

The Cortez Masto draft may be unnecessary by the time it is submitted to the Nevada Legislature. Given the huge size of the California market—the state makes up just over 12 percent of the population of the United States—it’s possible that phone manufacturers will build the kill switches into all models rather than provide switch-free versions to states that have no such requirement.

The attorney general is allowed to request up to 20 drafts of legislation from the legislative bill drafters. But Cortez Masto is termed out and will be out of office by the time the legislature goes into session next year, so it will be the decision of her successor whether to continue with the kill switch measure. Candidates for the job are Republican Adam Laxalt and Democrat Ross Miller.

Mobile carriers say the switches will make smart phones more susceptible to hackers and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, in a letter to California legislator Susan Bonilla, opposed the legislation, saying the technology was already available on an optional basis and the legislation “is not explicit about who can activate such a switch. … [M]andating a solution through legislation is not the right approach.”

Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto

But Consumers Union supported the legislation, less for theft prevention than because the smart phones contain so much private information. The organization conceded that kill technology is already available but said its inclusion in devices should be mandatory by law. “Every smart phone should be required to have a ‘kill switch’ that lets you wipe personal information off your device,” it said in a prepared statement. “What’s more, you should be able to disable your phone remotely to make it inoperable to thieves. And if you’re fortunate enough to get your phone back, it should be easy to reactivate.”

On Aug. 11, 2011, during protests on Bay Area Rapid Transit stations against a police killing of a homeless man, BART disabled cell service to four stations to hamper coordination of the protests. That angered some residents who joined the subsequent day’s protest. It also sparked a Federal Communications Commission investigation of BART and prompted the California Legislature to pass a law limiting official interference with cell transmissions.

It’s not just community groups whose work could be disrupted. The Columbia Journalism Review described the problem for photographers and reporters: “You’re a journalist covering a street protest, and the local police chief doesn’t like the photos you’re tweeting from your iPhone. One shows an officer arresting a minister. Another shows a protester surrendering as an officer chokes him. Yet another shows a teargas canister landing near a group of young people. The batons and rubber bullets come out, and the chief remotely disables the journalist’s iPhone, rendering it useless.”

The blockage may not stop reporting of a news event, but it slows things down until law enforcement gets all its ducks and spin doctors in a row and may well get its account of an event out before on-the-scene observers. In California, that would likely be illegal under the post-BART protest law, but what are the chances that local prosecutors will charge the police with a crime? In Nevada, there is no crime to charge.

Activist seeks Nevada Taxicab Authority administrator’s ouster

Retired corrupt Carson City judge Robey Willis was a drunk who had to breathalyze before the bench just like current judge John Tatro!

Apparently, Robey had enough and quit being a judge. He quit mid term because they made him breathalyze before the bench every day and he could not pass the test every time. 

We’re glad this sack of shit took the hint and left, when will the other child molesting judge John Tatro get the hint people hate his fucking guts (he has already been shot at) and get the fuck off the bench before he gets shot at again.

Also like his former corrupt counterpart, “Judge” John Tatro, Willis never even had a law degree or legal training! These idiots would just drink up at the Old Globe downtown.

One thing “Judge” Tatro does is retaliate against people who criticize him. I was thrown in jail for alleged “libel”  by this corrupt mentally deranged son of a bitch.

The charges were dismissed because what I said was true including that fact Tatro needs to breathalyze before he takes the bench and he had an affair with a court clerk which led to the shooting of his front door.

The piece of shit Tatro filed a false criminal complaint as retaliation because according to his complaint, his wife is upset.

Good she should divorce you because you are a scumbag. Maybe Tatro should consider suicide? 

Ty Robben can assure the readers that this information is legit and he can back it up.

We stand by the claim and even have the name of the victim.

Political Commentary: 3rd Appellate Court Upholds Ray Nutting’s Ouster and Vern Pierson Writes His Own Epitath

 
Pierson’s chest-beating should be a wake-up call to the political class in El Dorado County, you could be next unless you do something about Pierson. Vern Pierson has turned on dozens of people during his reign of terror in El Dorado County. Vern Pierson’s chest-beating is also a fitting political epitath for himself, because when Pierson is brought to justice, he will fall far harder than Ray Nutting ever did.

Vern Pierson is an idiot. Kind of like another of El Dorado County’s idiots minus the chemicals, Vern just can’t help himself.

We saw the news in the Sac Bee today – but Vern Pierson could not help himself:

This joint prosecution by the California Attorney General’s Office and the DA’s Office, and the District Court’s decision today, has proven once again that no one is above the law … even the politically powerful,” El Dorado County District Attorney Vern Pierson said in a statement.”

Pierson will die by the same sword – the self-righteous abusers of their own power always do.

For those of you not privy to the situation – allow me to sum it up in few sentences.

Vern Pierson is the El Dorado County DA. He decided to use his office to light up some of his political enemies. Ray Nutting made himself an easy target because of his lacksadasical devil-may-care attitude toward his paperwork. Nutting beat the felony rap, but had to raise bail money. He was convicted of violating the political reform act over how he raised his bail money – a misdemeanor no less – but not on the original charges Pierson brought.

A judge threw him out of office over the equivalent of  bar fight conviction, then the appeals court upheld the decision. The Bee did not go in to the reasons why – BTW, it is actually rare for an appeals court to overturn any decision no matter how absurd.

Pierson’s chest-beating should be a wake-up call to the political class in El Dorado County, you could be next unless you do something about Pierson. Vern Pierson has turned on dozens of people during his reign of terror in El Dorado County. Vern Pierson’s chest-beating is also a fitting political epitath for himself, because when Pierson is brought to justice, he will fall far harder than Ray Nutting ever did.

BTW – since it is a Misdemeanor conviction, Ray Nutting can still run for Supervisor again in the future.

If I was Vern Pierson, I’d have shut up. I’d have let Clinchard and his assistant make the statement. Instead, exhibiting the out of control psychosis rational people recognize, Pierson had to dance on the grave.

That is even dumber than his handshakes.

Carson City DA loses “reinstatement” battle to re-file false charges against Ty Robben for exposing Judge Tatro’s various scandals

“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.

 

Protests target corrupt Reno lawyer William Routsis for “ripping off” & “selling out clients”, back room deals, fraud, ineffective legal counsel, threats of extortion, meth use, binders on booze being to drunk to return calls, and more!

william routsis protest

Lawyer Mr. William Routsis, ESQ. of Reno, NV claimed on the court records he was “ineffective counsel”

Reno criminal defense attorney William J. Routsis, got a taste of revenge after a former client, Ty Robben protested outside Mr. Routsis’ office at 1070 Monroe St. in Reno which happens to also be Mr. Routsis’ home.

Mr. Robben paid Mr. Routsis $4,000.00 dollars to represent him in court – He now wants his money back.

williamroutsisbadlawyer.wordpress.com is dedicated to this asshole.

Mr. Routsis claimed on the court records he was “ineffective counsel” to Mr. Robben by failing to turn in documents on time, making “back room” deals with the corrupt Carson City judge John Tatro and the DA Travis Lucia, Neil Rombardo and even working against Robben by conspiring with the Carson City Sheriff Detective Dan Gomes.

william routsis

At the protest July 15, 2014, Robben and a group of his “peaceful” protest posse expressed their 1st amendment rights in front of Routsis’ home/office on Monroe Street in Reno, Nevada. Neighbors looked upon the signs and people driving by honk their horns in support of Robben’s protest.

Mr. Robben linked the information together and connected the dots by listening to various audio CDs containing the hearings and other transcripts from the Sheriff. Mr. Routsis worked to make sure Robben got the maximum sentence in a disturbing the peace charge for serving a subpoena to former NDOT Director Susan Martinivich, who actually evaded service and ran over Mr. Robben’s foot when she took off in her SUV.

Robben prevailed on his appeal of the breach-of-peace in July 2014 based on his own legal arguments of withdrawing his plea. Robben had to write his own briefs and perform his own legal research because ‘Routsis does not know how to use a computer”.

Robben had to even file the pleading in proper person because Routsis was too drunk and high on dope.

Robben let the militia aside, and just made a few signs. “I want my money back for services not performed”.

Routsis was not home at the time the protest started, but drove up on the protest near the end of day.

William Routsis

Disbar William Routsis

Routsis became enraged and hostile when he read the signs and allegedly called the Reno Police Department to file “criminal charges” against Robben for “extortion” and called Robben a “terrorist”  and Routsis then yelled “I have been working with CCSO Detective Gomes to tell them you are extorting money from me and you [Robben] are on the FBI terror watch list.”

Routsis then challenged Ty Robben to a fight right there on the public sidewalk. People from the neighborhood gathered around and watch William Routsis, a former boxer, tell Robben to “Man UP” and attempted to lure Robben onto his property for a fight!

Robben remained calm, and told Routsis that “You, William Routsis even admit on the court records that you failed to perform you legal duties and were ‘ineffective legal counsel’ for me [Ty Robben]”.photo(3)

Ty Robben’s cousin Jimmy Robben, a cowboy from the Mother Lode witnessed the mayhem and prevented Routsis from striking Ty Robben with his fists. “Ty was here to express his U.S. Constitutional rights and protest a bad business dispute, and William Routsis wanted to start a fist fight. Let’s be clear, Routsis challenged Robben who just held up his ‘Crime Scene’ sign to Routsis’ face while Jimmy Robben restrained Routsis from physically assaulting/battering  Robben.

Robben told Routsis to “get help and look into a 12-step program… and don’t talk to me until you get to step 9 Mr. Routsis”.

Robben said he will be filing a criminal complaint against Wiillim Routsis after this all settles down for terriost threats, assault and Routsis’ challenging him [Robben] to a fight. Robben will file a BAR complaint and even a civil legal malpractice suit against this clown named William Routsis.

Child sexual abuse
“Child sex offender” redirects here. For sex crimes committed by children, see Juvenile sex crimes.

kill cho mosChild sexual abuse or child molestation is a form of child abuse in which an adult or older adolescent uses a child for sexual stimulation.[1][2] Forms of child sexual abuse include asking or pressuring a child to engage in sexual activities (regardless of the outcome), indecent exposure (of the genitals, female nipples, etc.) to a child with intent to gratify their own sexual desires or to intimidate or groom the child, physical sexual contact with a child, or using a child to produce child pornography.[1][3][4]

Child sexual abuse can occur in a variety of settings, including home, school, or work (in places where child labor is common). Child marriage is one of the main forms of child sexual abuse;UNICEF has stated that child marriage “represents perhaps the most prevalent form of sexual abuse and exploitation of girls”.[5] The effects of child sexual abuse can include depression,[6]post-traumatic stress disorder,[7] anxiety,[8] complex post-traumatic stress disorder,[9] propensity to further victimization in adulthood,[10] and physical injury to the child, among other problems.[11] Sexual abuse by a family member is a form of incest, and can result in more serious and long-term psychological trauma, especially in the case of parental incest.[12]

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.

FBI Protest: Investigate the Corrupt Carson City courts

FBI protest carson city courts

 

A major protest will occur to demand that the FBI investigate the corruption in the Carson City and Reno Courts.

IMG_0357 IMG_0362

Have a problem with the Carson City Courts, Sheriff or DA? Call the FBI and the local news sources and demand an investigation, and charges filed against the corrupt licensed criminals like “Judge” Tatro, Sheriff Ken furlong and DA Neail Rombard and his corrupt sidekick Mark Krueger.

 

We’re also calling all Nevada Senators and Representatives to demand that FBI do their damn job and investigate that rampant corruption and criminal activity including “Acting under the color of Law” and RICO.

Stay tuned for details and pictures.

Issues:

  • Backdated court filings.
  • Judge Tatro filing false criminal complaints against Ty Robben.
  • Carson City Sheriff and DA fabricating evidence.
  • Cover ups including MURDER and the Judge Tatro shooting because Tatro had an affair with the shooters mom!
  • NHP editing audio video dash camera footage.
  • DAS operating outside jurisdiction.
  • CCSO poisoning food in the jail, not giving inmates required meds, tainted jail water, etc.
  • And much more.

 

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

New ethics complaint against corrupt Carson City “Judge” TATRO

jp tatro ruthless and toothlesstatro is a fraud

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE COMMISSION

This piece of shit “judge” Tatro is nothing more than a liar,an alcoholic and recent statements from “confidential informants” claim Tatro is a “child molester”and had homosexual sexual relations with a young man he paid for sex.  We stand by the claim and even have the name of the victim. One thing Tatro does is retaliate against people who criticize him. I was thrown in jail for alleged “libel”  by this corrupt mentally deranged son of a bitch. The charges were dismissed because what I said was true including that fact Tatro needs to breathalyze before he takes the bench and he had an affair with a court clerk which led to the shooting of his front door. The piece of shit Tatro filed a false criminal complaint as retalation because according to his complaint, his wife is upset. Good she should divorce you because you are a scumbag. Maybe Tatro should consider suicide? Go ahead make my day.

If I file a complaint, can the judicial officer retaliate against me? Will the judge know I filed the complaint? Should I mention that I filed a complaint in court and try to change judges?

If the judicial officer retaliates against you for filing a complaint, that would be an unwise decision and could lead to additional charges of misconduct being lodged against the judicial officer. You should inform us if the judicial officer does engage in conduct of this type. Generally, the judicial officer will not be told you have complained about him or her (unless someone out of the Commission’s control informs him or her). Only if the matter proceeds to an investigatory stage or to a stage where the judge’s response is requested will the judicial officer learn of the complaint. You should not serve the complaint on the judicial officer.  This means you cannot use the fact you filed a complaint to justify your removal of the judge from your case. If you have a lawyer, you should consult with him/her about the advisability of filing a complaint.

1. What does the Code regulate and what is a Canon?

The Code is based upon a model set of five Canons plus explanations (called Commentaries) that most of the States in the United States have adopted in the same or nearly the same form so as to govern judicial conduct similarly across the country. Canons are separate sections designed to state ethical rules applicable to judges. Each of the Canons express a related group of requirements that a judicial officer must abide by while serving in Nevada and acting as a judicial officer. These are not advisory or aspirational rules; rather, they are mandatory and binding. The five Canons deal with topics such as a judge remaining dignified or impartial; not failing to disqualify from a case due to bias or other reasons; what judicial officers can do with regard to outside interests including their own; how a judge should campaign for judicial office; and many additional topics.

New website to expose corrupt Carson City Judge Tatro SCANDALS

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.

Judge Tatro, The Nevada Judicial Code of Conduct and Rule 2.15 Responding to Judicial and Lawyer Misconduct.

ImageJudge John Tatro of Carson City, Nevada filed a false police report against Ty Robben and the other Judges involved in the cases need to comply with The Nevada Judicial Code of Conduct  and Rule 2.15 Responding to Judicial and Lawyer Misconduct.

The legal definition of “false reporting of a crime” in Nevada, prohibits knowingly making a false report to law enforcement that a crime has occurred, which causes law enforcement to conduct a criminal or internal investigation.

Note that the report can be made by any means such as orally, through writing or electronic communication.  Also note that NRS 207.280 applies when the defendant allegedly makes the report to any of the following members of law enforcement:

Carson City DA candidate Mark Krueger supports NDAA tactics in Carson City

What’s all the fuss about the NDAA?

mark kruegerIt’s a big deal.

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is a bill that normally funds the military.  However, in 2012, two sections (1021 & 1022) made the NDAA the most dangerous law since the U.S. Civil War. Repeating the mistakes of WWII, when we detained 120,000 Japanese-Americans on race alone, this law authorizes the indefinite military detention of any person suspected of an affiliation with terrorism.  This law applies to American citizens in America, non-citizens in America, and American citizens abroad. It doesn’t matter.

No charge. No trial. No day in court. Passed 93-7 in the Senate, 283-136 in the House.

How does it affect you?

The government just redefined a “terrorist.” It’s not someone convicted of blowing up buildings anymore. It’s everyone. According to multiple documents from the FBI, Department of Homeland Security, and other agencies, It’s people who are “reverent of individual liberty,” “suspicious of centralized authority,” and “antifederalists.” It’s people who carry cash instead of credit. It’s people who are against fracking. It’s Constitutionalists, Ron Paul supporters, Democrats, Republicans, tea partiers and occupiers. Essentially, it’s everyone.

What can you do?

The problem is big, but there’s an easy solution. All politics is local. We’ve forgotten that. It’s time to go local. Your police, sheriff, city council, they all took an oath to protect your rights. It’s time to hold them to it. We’ve been fighting this battle for almost two years. And now, we’ve created the tools for you to do it too.

Download the Take Back Packet here: http://pandaunite.org/take-back-packet-online/

If you’re ready to take back your town, it’s time to roll. There are 3 steps: Learn, Build, and Act.  Here’s how you do it.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Learn

About the NDAA

The 2012 NDAA is the most dangerous law since the U.S. Civil War, and America’s politicians don’t want you to find out about it…using every trick in the book to stop you from understanding. Know your enemy, and you can fight it.

About your local government

First, you must know your public servants. Secondly, you must know your process. Research your local government; know when they meet, the rules for public comments, and how to get legislation introduced, voted on, and passed.

Build

Your team

Start small. Hand out a basic flyer to coworkers, family, and friends, and ask them to join you in defending liberty and justice. Gather a core team of at least 4 people, ready to stand with you to stop the NDAA in your community.

Your coalition

Go to local Tea Party meetings, Occupy assemblies, and activist groups. Reach out to neighborhood groups, local parties, and activists groups. Show them how this endangers their group. Ask them to join your coalition.

Act

Inform

Flyer your neighborhood with your core team. Write letters to the editor. Create a website: takeback(yourcity).com

Pressure

Meet with your representatives/commissioners/councilmen. Speak out at public comment. Videotape it. Upload the video to this website and inspire the nation. (Upload link coming soon.)  The law of war is the backbone of the NDAA.  Pressure your officials until they introduce, and vote on, a law blocking it in your community.

Win

Win.  Get your city council, county commission, or sheriff to pass a law blocking the NDAA, protecting activists, families, and businesses everywhere in your city/county. Hold your representatives accountable. They will try to trick you. They will ridicule you. They will try to refer it to committee. They will stall. The police will refuse to enforce it. Go back. Over and over again. Never give up. If they try to weaken your law, stop them. Do not compromise. Do not accept defeat. Know that you are on the cutting edge of the revolution.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

That’s how we win. It’s that simple. Learn, Build, Act. You have been looking for something that works. You see the path our country has traveled down. You want a future for your children. You are ready.

We’ll provide extra support when you need it. We’ll provide advice, and you have the power to take back your town. Thousands of people stand behind you.

With liberty and justice for all.

Are you ready to Take Back your town?

Want to get started, but don’t quite know how?

Carson City DA candidate Mark Krueger chickens out of tonight’s Carson City Chamber Primary Candidate Forum

Public invited to tonight’s Carson City Chamber Primary Candidate Forum

mark krueger chick scared

Mark Krueger chickened out after learning Ty Robben was going to show up!

mark-krueger-is-corrupt

Millions of taxpayer dollars wasted on retaliation against Ty Robben

EVENT DATE:  May 21, 2014 – 6:00pm

The two Carson City District Attorney candidates Mark Krueger and Jason Woodbury were supposed to debate at this forum

…but Mark Krueger chickened out after learning Ty Robben was going to show up, protest and ask these questions:

  • How much taxpayer money was spent on the retaliation of Ty Robben?
  • How much taxpayer money are the taxpayers paying Thorndal, Armstrong, Delk, Balkenbush & Eisinger ?
  • When is “Judge’ John Tatro going to be charged or filing a FALSE police report against Ty Robben?
  • Why did the DA Mark Krueger and Neil Rombardo drop charges o a felon in possession of 60 loaded AK47 and AR15 firearms (and a large quantity of meth) against Keith Furr to testify against Robben when Furr actually solicited Robben according to the secret recordings that in act were not recorded via a “wire” and instead were illegally recorded via the cell intercom system?
  • When the CCSO and DA manufactured the surreptitious recordings, they broke the law by engaging in surreptitious recording and then fabricating the audio to add a header with Keith Furr saying he is wearing a wire and “working or the judge tatro”…
  • When Robben was in jail and the CCSO recorded the cell conversations, clearly the CCSO recorded other inmates informing Robben of an array of scandalous matters with Kenny Furlong and Judge Tatro that including homosexual acts with transvestites and pedophilia child molestation with young men. freddy-krueger
  • Why is the CCSO covering up the shooting o Judge Tatro’s front door?  Clearly the “official” position from the CCSO that Levi Minor used a ‘BB gun” is bullshit and he was never charged or that. It is true that Levi Minor did admit that John Tatro had an affair with his mother “Crystal” who worked in the Carson City courthouse. So, with these undisputed acts, why is the CCSO still covering this matter up?
  • Many more questions will be brought out, stay tuned.
  • One of the big stories people are talking about is the CCSO does not give inmates their prescribed medications! Robben witness numerous Carson City jail inmates suffering because of this policy and custom by the CCSO.

    In fact, the two “doctors” at the Carson City Jail named “Doctor Joe” or Dr. JOSEPH MCELLISTREM and Carson City Jail nurse practitioner David Ramsey are not legally M.D. doctors at all prescribing medications, or in this case taking them away from people in the most need.

Vern Pierson District Attorney of El Dorado County received a letter from the Fair Political Practices Commission regarding violations of the Political Reform Act’s campaign disclosure provision

DA Vern PiersonThe District Attorney of El Dorado County received a letter from the Fair Political Practices Commission regarding violations of the Political Reform Act’s campaign disclosure provisions.

See the FPPC report here: Vern Pierson warning letter from FPPC

“Specifically, the FPPC found that you violated the Act’s campaign disclosure provisions with regard to loans made to your committee and that you also violated the Act’s ‘one bank account per campaign’ requirement as evidenced when you reimbursed yourself for $4,100 for campaign expenses you paid with personal funds without first depositing that amount in the campaign bank account,” the letter from FPPC Chief Enforcement Officer Gary Winuk to District Attorney Vern Pierson read.

A second complaint was filed against Pierson alleging his wife is a physical therapist and Pierson is the chief technology officer of the county, but that these are not divulged on campaign finance forms. In a footnote in the FPPC letter, Winuk acknowledges a second complaint that was dismissed due to lack of evidence. Pierson said his wife had never been a physical therapist.

Winuk also noted that Pierson had no previous record of violations, and as such, would only have a warning issued; subsequent violations could result in a $5,000 fine per violation.

El Dorado DA Vern Pierson ANTI Corruption protest 2013

“I appreciate the FPPC having a very difficult job enforcing laws regarding political campaigns,” Pierson told the Mountain Democrat. “Now, I have an experienced campaign treasurer” handling campaign finances, he said.

Frank Stephens, who filed the complaints with the FPPC and provided copies of both complaints, said that Pierson was doing the same thing he is currently accusing Supervisor Ray Nutting of doing — paperwork violations. When Stephens learned of the accusations against Nutting, he said he was “very much offended” and pulled records on Pierson’s campaign to see if he had made any violations. “Guess what? He did,” Stephens said.

Pierson, Stephens said, is “unfit to be the district attorney” due to how he has unethically handled the Nutting case. Stephens worked on and monetarily supported Pierson’s original campaign to become DA, something which he said he was “unhappy” he did in retrospect.

“With regards to the letters, it’s pretty pathetic,” said political watchdog Chuck Holland. “The Three Stooges” — what Holland refers to as Ray Nutting, Cris Alarcon and Dan Dellinger — “got Frank Stephens to perjure himself to the FPPC,” referring to the part that was dismissed due to lack of evidence. “It’s a continuation of a witch hunt, and Frank Stephens is tied to them.”

He noted that this was also the first time since Pierson had competition, in the form of bankruptcy lawyer Judson Henry. Henry dropped out of the race after about two weeks, but will still be on the ballot. “It became clear others had attempted to use him to create a distraction,” Pierson said at the time Henry dropped out.

Ray Nutting told the Mountain Democrat that he was not involved with any political campaign, including the DA’s campaign.

TY Robben AKA “Top Ramen” Free At Last – All charges dropped

Charges dropped: DA protester out of prison

By 
From page A1 | April 18, 2014 | 3 Comments

A man known for protesting the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office and charged with soliciting the murder of a judge in Nevada has been released from prison and his charges dismissed.

South Lake Tahoe resident Ty Robben was released last week after Douglas County, Nev., District Attorney Mark Jackson dismissed the solicitation of murder charge, along with a charge of criminal libel — a charge that is not used in California.

Both the criminal libel and solicitation of murder charge concerned Judge John Tatro, Robben said. But, Robben told the Mountain Democrat, he was exercising his 1st Amendment rights for the first charge, and he was not soliciting anything on the second charge. Rather, another prisoner — while Robben, known as “Top Ramen” while incarcerated on the libel charge — propositioned him with a $5,000 “roofing job,” Robben said.

Jackson confirmed he dismissed the charges due to lack of evidence and unlikelihood of conviction. He also noted that the Carson City, Nev., DA’s Office was originally on the case, but was taken off due to having been named in a federal lawsuit Robben filed against them.

Robben credits his faith with seeing him through his time in prison. “My faith in the Lord got me through the darkest period in my life and I pray that I can start to forgive these people for the unforgivable acts of government retaliation using the criminal justice system after I had filed a federal lawsuit in Reno two weeks before I was arrested in California.”

All charges against South Tahoe resident Ty Robben have now been dropped in jailhouse HIT MAN to kill corrupt Carson City Judge Tatro and Slander/Libel/Internet Stalking

Douglas County District Attorney Mark Jackson, the special prosecutor named to handle the cases, previously dismissed libel and harassment charges.

He served notice Thursday that he was dropping the charge Ty Robben AKA “Top Ramen” (new ‘jail name’ obtained at the Carson City jailhouse since it sounds like his name) tried to hire a hit man to kill Justice of the Peace John Tatro.

Ty Robben AKA “Top Ramen” (new name obtained at the Carson City jailhouse since it sounds like his name)

Mark Jackson was brought in after the Carson City DA’s office was disqualified from handling the case.

“Based on a full and complete review of all the evidence and the existing constitutional, statutory and case law, I filed a notice of dismissal today in the Carson Township Justice Court,” Jackson said in a statement.

He said that means Robben’s $50,000 bail has been lifted, and all pending charges against him have been dismissed.

“It is my understanding that Mr. Robben is in the process of being released from the Carson City Jail,” Jackson said.

Robben stopped by the Tahoe Daily Tribune Friday and said he was hoping to restore his life and family. He thanked his attorneys for their work to get him released.

“Thank you to Mark Jackson for standing up and supporting the U.S. Constitution,” Robben said.

Two weeks ago, Jackson dismissed the other case against Robben, which accused him of libel and stalking and two counts of attempting to intimidate Tatro and his family.

He did so stating that Nevada’s libel law was “unconstitutionally vague.” The stalking charge, he said, simply didn’t have enough evidence to support it.

Robben has been battling the state and criminal justice system since he was terminated by the Taxation Department.

He was angry with Tatro for his conviction on charges of disorderly conduct centered on his attempt to — allegedly — serve papers on behalf of a friend on then-NDOT Director Susan Martinovich.

Robben said Judge Tatro and Assistant DA Mark “Freddie” Krueger must resign and criminal charges must be filed against Judge Tatro  for filing a false report against me!Judge Tatro Corrupt

Thank you Douglas County DA Mark Jackson for respecting the US Constitution and my 1st & 14th Amendment rights in these matters and the honor to respect the law(s) and look at the facts unbiased.

NAG Catherine Cortez Masto: I’m NOT running for Nevada governor

nag masto signWell, well, well this cunt decided not to run. Good, get the fuck out of town bitch. Go away, you are a disgrace to Nevada, the Democrat party and everything represent you fucking cunt.

We have been on a roll here at the Nevada State Personnel WATCH. We are taking out the corrupt politicians and exposing their corruption and scandals for the world to see. We don’t hold back here at the Nevada State Personnel WATCH and this lady is the queen-of-corruption and Harry Reid’s bitch.

Don’t get us wrong, Brian Sandoval is just as bad as NAG Masto.  So fuck you governor sunshine and stick the sun up your ass.

Check out David Lory Vanderbeek or just vote for none of the above when the election hits. The Democrats may not even have someone for Governor this year. If they do it will be Barbara Buckley or Steve Sisolak from Las Vegas…

Others may be wondering what term-limited Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto will be doing after she leaves office in 2014, and Masto says she’s wondering too.nag masto

The 2014 election is still more than a year away, but candidates are already busy running for office. Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval is running for re-election; Democratic Secretary of State Ross Miller is running for Attorney General; Democratic Treasurer Kate Marshall is running for Secretary of State.

Widely considered one of Nevada’s top Democrats, the Sun caught up with Masto in Las Vegas yesterday and asked her about her future in politics.

Are you interested in running for governor?

I’m not interested in running for lieutenant governor … At this point in time, I have not announced one way or another whether I am running for governor, but I will tell you that no, I am not looking at running for governor this next election cycle. I want to finish out what I’m doing here in the attorney general’s office, and I’m exploring what other options might be available for me, but I can never say I will never run for governor in the future.

NV Appeal coverage of ANTI-CURRPTION protest against Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto

Brian Sandoval is running again and you’ve worked with him for the past few years. Is it about not taking him on?

No, no, I’m not afraid of any fight. That’s not the issue. It’s the issue of what I want to do next and where I want to be to work on certain issues that I am passionate about.

Catherine Cortez MastoWhere is that?

I’m exploring that now. I know I have a year left, so I’m not done with the job. So I’m focusing on my office and finishing things I wanted to finish.

What’re other people saying to you? Are they giving you some advice on considering other offices?

Right now, other than exploring it and telling you what I’m interested or what I’m looking to do, the only thing I can tell you right now is the one office people wanted me to run for was Lieutenant Governor, and it’s just not where I want to be. It’s not where I think can use all of my abilities to work on behalf of the state of Nevada.

NV Appeal coverage of ANTI-CURRPTION protest against Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto

NV Appeal coverage of ANTI-CURRPTION protest against Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto

Why not Lieutenant Governor?

I’m just not interested. It’s a very limited position. It only focuses on a limited area. I know it’s part-time, but it’s not something that really interests me given all the various issues and areas I’ve been able to work on: elder abuse and exploitation, domestic violence, sex trafficking to substance abuse, you name it, crime. It just wouldn’t be something of interest to me based on the job duties and functions.

Is the Carson City Sheriff Covering up the Judge Tatro Shooting after admitting that the alleged shooter confessed? Hell YES

Is the Carson City Sheriff Covering up the Judge Tatro Shooting after admitting the alleged shooter confessed? We think hell YES.

UPDATE 09-28-2013 – I spoke with the Carson City Sheri Kenny Furlong about the name of the 19 old male who confessed to shooting Judge Tatro’s house.

Sheriff Furlong at first said the name of the shooter was Jesse Richardson and then realized that the Jesse Richardson was the witness, not the shooter…

Levi Anthony Minor

Levi Anthony Minor

Furlong then said the 19 old male who confessed to shooting Judge Tatro’s house was Levi Anthony Minor of the west side BB shooting fame …But that Levi Anthony Minor didn’t really do it and he made the story up. The they issued a warrant for the witness Jesse Richardson (alleged probation violation) or is the warrant to get Jesse Richardson into custody to shut him up? We don’t believe the Sheriff Furlong story and still this issue as a cover up.

Jesse Russell Richardson

Jesse Russell Richardson

Have you seen Jesse Russell Richardson?

Have you seen Jesse Russell Richardson? If so, the CCSO issued a warrant or his arrest. Please have Jesse Russell Richardson call KRNV Newsroom: 775-785-1210 and tell his side of the story.

We reported that a credible source presented credible information, a jailhouse confession concerning the shooter of Carson City Judge Tatro.

We reported that story here: The shooter of Judge Tatro’s door found? Judge Tatro caught in sex triangle revenge scandal?

The Carson City Sheriff was informed of the information and conducted an investigation the first week of September 2013. The results of the Carson City Sheriff investigation confirmed that the information we provided was true, but that the target was a straw man judge because it was not Judge Tatro or any other Judge.

CARSON CITY SHERIFF CCSO

crime scene cover upA person in the Carson City jail was bragging to others to be the shooter of Judge John Tatro’s front door in December 2012. However, the Sheriff is saying that this person made up the story and really shot into another Carson City Judges home with a BB gun. However, it was not one of the four Carson City Judges and the Judge was not named.

This makes no sense and is the typical "straw man" cover up.

This makes no sense and is the typical “straw man” cover up.

This makes no sense and is the typical “straw man” cover up.

Who was the Judge? It was not Armstrong, Willis, Tatro, Wilson or Russell.

Was the person arrested and charged for the BB  gun shooting? No – There is no Sheriff report or court records.

What was the motive?

The Sheriff confirmed the shooters mom did work at the Carson City Courthouse and this supports the belief that there was some kind of sexual affair going on and the 19 year old shooter was upset and shot at the Judges front door.

The official Sheriff explanation is not credible. We have reported this to the local news and FBI to get real answer.

We believe the story we presented here: The shooter of Judge Tatro’s door found? Judge Tatro caught in sex triangle revenge scandal?

Decay in Nevada’s mental health system goes beyond Rawson-Neal under Governor Brian Sandoval’s watch

Monday, Sept. 9, 2013 | 2 a.m.

Legislators meeting in Carson City recently asked the embattled state health department about how it’s handling all the negative media attention it’s received during a five-month-long mental health scandal that won’t go away.

“I don’t think you can find a mental health program in the nation that has seen the reviews and oversight that we’ve seen,” said Mike Willden, director of the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services.

Brian Sandoval scandal

Brian Sandoval scandal

In April, the story of one man, James F.C. Brown, sent packing with a one-way bus ticket from the Rawson-Neal Psychiatric Hospital in Las Vegas to Sacramento sparked outrage about Nevada’s mental health system.

The story, first reported by the Sacramento Bee, provided a glimpse into one aspect of the state’s troubled mental health system, but subsequent investigations have revealed wide-ranging problems in a system struggling to provide even basic services for thousands of mentally ill people in Nevada.

Consider:

• Rawson-Neal has lost its independent accreditation from the Joint Commission, a nonprofit quality control agency, and could lose federal funding for not meeting minimum care standards.

• The Dini-Townsend psychiatric hospital in Northern Nevada also could lose certification, and two other state psychiatric hospitals in Nevada — Lake’s Crossing in Reno and the Desert Willow Treatment Center in Las Vegas — already lack certification, according to documents provided by the state health department.

• The ACLU of Nevada is representing Brown in a class-action suit against the state for “severe and extreme physical, emotional and psychological harm” suffered when Brown and others were improperly bused out of state after being discharged from Rawson-Neal.

• The city of San Francisco is threatening to sue the state for instances like Brown’s in which Nevada improperly bused mental health patients to San Francisco, forcing taxpayers there to pay for their care. Continue reading

CARSON CITY, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) — Carson City District Attorney Neil A. Rombardo will not seek a 3rd term as the District Attorney of Carson City. Rombardo intends to serve until the end of his term in 2014. He hopes to see the 5 pending murder cases through to completion.

neil rombardo is an fucked up asshole

I love the Smell of Napalm in the Morning.  …The smell of victory.

District Attorney Neil Rombardo isn’t running for a third term.

“I want to thank the people I work with in the district attorney’s office,” he said in a news release Thursday. “They are an impressive team of professionals dedicated to making Carson City a better place.

“I also want to thank the voters of Carson City for giving me the opportunity to serve the community. It has been an honor to act as their district attorney for the last seven years.”NEIL ROMBARDO TAKES IT UP THE ASS

He said he has accomplished many of the things he set out to do and that “after a lengthy discussion with my children, I’ve concluded that there are more effective ways that I can serve my family and the community.”

He didn’t say what his plans are, but he said he intends to complete his term through the end of 2014, when his term ends, including prosecuting the five open murder cases working their way through the Carson City district courts.

Rombardo said his decision is best for his family. He has two children, both teenagers.

“I absolutely love the job, but I feel like it’s best for my family not to be on the campaign trail five-six days a week,” he stated.

He said prosecution of David Mitchell for murder in 2006 is one of his proudest accomplishments. That murder occurred in 1982 and was considered a “cold case” with little likelihood it would be solved.

Before his election as DA, Rombardo was a senior deputy in the Nevada Attorney General’s office.

Chuck Muth: Gov. Brian Sandoval already had his mind made up on tax increase

Wait. Are you kidding me?muth says

Anjeanette Damon of the Las Vegas Sun recently obtained emails showing that a troika of lobbyists/power-brokers overruled Gov. Brian Sandoval’s (R&R-Partners) senior staff on one of the governor’s numerous betrayals of his “no tax hikes” pledge. This outrageous story shows that not only are Sandoval’s promises empty, so is his suit.

At issue is what has become known as the “More Cops” tax increase for Clark County. Voters approved half the hike in 2004, when Nevada still was in times of plenty. Indeed, recall that in 2005 tax revenues had come in so much higher than expected from the 2003 Mother of All Tax Hikes that then-Gov. Kenny Guinn actually issued tax rebates. Continue reading

Carson City Judge John Tatro has a lot in common with Disgraced Judge Jim EnEarl who was removed from the bench.  Judge Tatro has a pattern of violating the laws like NRS Chapter 4 (4.320)and engaging in hillbilly justice. jp tatro ruthless and toothless

When Douglas County Sheriff’s Captain Jim EnEarl ran for East Fork Township Justice of the Peace in 1994, he knew many county voters wondered if he had the right temperament for the job.

Would he dispense justice evenhandedly?

Or, after spending his whole professional life as a cop — 11 years in Orange County, California, then 17 in Douglas County — would he be biased in favor of fellow sheriff’s department officers and the district attorney’s office he’d worked with so long?

EnEarl hastened to assure county voters there would be no problem. He asserted he had conducted internal investigations in Douglas County for the last 15 years, had even once or twice recommended officer termination, and so had “insight.”

But most significantly, EnEarl repeatedly assured Douglas County voters he was deeply concerned about  their constitutional rights as Americans.

“Strong Belief in Individual Rights” – Really wtf?

It’s “because of my strong belief in individual rights and the experience I have gained in both the public and private sector, [that] I am seeking this office,” he told the Gardnerville Record- Courier. Continue reading

**UPDATE DA Vern Pierson and Bill Clark hold the position Dennis Justin was not at the crime scene as debunked in this new June 04, 2013 deposition** See new video of Nevada Bounty Hunter / Bail bondsman Dennis Justin explain how he entered Ty Robben’s home, watched Robben get tased and note there was no fight as they once said.

Notice Mr. Justin make jokes about tasering Robben and then make a wild false statement under the penalty of perjury that SLTPD was/is  “investigating” Robben for alleged threats to California Governor Jerry Brown! Mr. Justin then refers to Jerry Brown as a piece of ____.  I called SLTPD and spoke to a detective who’s name I should list, but I’ll keep in confidential and assured me SLTPD is not “investigating” me (Robben) and they would not be the agency who would investigate threats to the Governor. For the record, I don’t follow Jerry Brown, blog about Mr. Brown or have any negative feelings toward the California Governor.

DA Vern Pierson’s assistant Bill Clark outed as anonymous Mt. Democrat bully/ DA shill blogger “Justice Insider”. 

Interesting comments on the flurry of Vern Pierson news with the DA protests and Ray Nutting corruption all coming at the same time.  Looks like the DA office tried some anonymous shill blogging to control the spin and it backfired as well.

By the way, this was posted on a recent Sac Bee story. The “Justice Insider” part ties into the Mt. Democrat stories on my protest and Ray Nutting where over 100 comments were posted in one day.  See that here: http://www.mtdemocrat.com/news/supervisor-nutting-arrested/

Ty Robben is not the blogger who said this:

” Sis says that Nutting is simply following in the footsteps of his fellow felon, former Mayor (Dirty Dave) Machado of Placerville who was arrested and charged on counts of conflict of interest for voting on Redevelopment issues while owning property within that same district, not to mention remodeling his rental units (which caught on fire) without a permit. Dirty Dave got a slap on the wrist some say because he knew where all the bodies are buried, not unlike the chump Nutting. Sis also wonders where the heck the FBI is?

It is common knowledge in Placerville that the District Attorney and the County Auditor Joe Harn are as crooked as a three dollar bill.

Sis also says that now that the Assistant District Attorney (the tall one) who has been outed blogging to the local paper spinning the news in favor of his boss the D.A. under the name of “Justice Insider”,what will his new blog name be? Sis also wants to know what the responsibility of a newspaper (The Democrat) is when they know that a local government official (Justice Insider) is known to be blogging misleading news to the public?

El Dorado County Supervisor Ray Nutting was arrested Tuesday on felony charges of failing to disclose income, filing false documents, perjury and failing to recuse himself from votes in which he had a financial interest.

El Dorado County District Attorney Vern Pierson announced the District 2 representative’s arrest in a press release issued Tuesday afternoon.

The charges are related to grants Nutting received from the Sierra Coordinated Resource Management Council to complete fuel reduction projects funded by Proposition 40 grants on his south county property, as well as other income the supervisor allegedly failed to report. As an El Dorado County supervisor, Nutting takes part in votes that affect the SCRMC.

Count 1 alleges that Nutting knowingly filed a false economic interest statement in 2010.

Count 2 cites Nutting’s alleged failure to disclose the nearly $72,000 he received from the SCRMC in 2009. “Defendant belatedly attempted to report four-and-a-half years late in 2013 while still failing to disclose the entity which wrote the check,” the complaint states. It also states that Nutting failed to disclose $26,040 in cash deposited into his personal bank account, $6,803 received for work performed and more than $16,330 Nutting received in rental income.

Count 3 addresses paperwork Nutting submitted related to 2009 Prop. 40 brush clearing projects. The complaint alleges the documents contain false information and lack supporting material. Continue reading

Placerville press cover the protest at Vern Pierson’s office

Crime Scene at District Attorney’s Office – Widespread Public Support

vern pierson
Broad Support, and lack of objectors, indicate a widespread belief among the public that there is some kind of corruption in the administration of fair and equal justice in El Dorado County.
Placerville Newswire | May 21 2013

Placeville Newswire Note: I observed the protest for about one hour and during that time about 20% of the passing vehicles yelled out expressing support for the protesters.  One patron having lunch with his wife at the Pizzeria across the street expressed support for the protest but with this caveat, “Good Luck, they do what they want in El Dorado County.”  It was clear that there was widespread public perception that there was some form of corruption in the administration of justice in El Dorado County.

From the protest organizer:
In a nutshell, DA Pierson charged one of 5 perpetrators who kick in my door, tased me 3 times, slashed my tires and tried to kidnap me (arrest me) on behalf of the Carson City Nevada Court. They were “bounty hunters” but they used a warrant and acted as agents of the court. Only Sheriff or Police serve warrants. They acted under the color of law and as mercenaries by using the said warrant. DA Pierson agrees to most of this and charged Doug Lewis the hired  “bounty Hunter”. However, Dennis Justin of the Justin Bros Bail Bonds Co. from Carson City was the main “perp” who conspired and acted directly with Mr. Lewis. Mr. Justin used a battering ram with Mr. Lewis and took down my front door, entered my home, tased me 3 times and chased me into the forest! Mr. Justin admitted to slashing my car tires too.
If you get a chance, google California Penal code 847.5 (they violated this). Continue reading

Bounty Hunter Douglas Lewis will face five misdemeanor charges in connection  with an October 18 incident at the Sierra Tract home of local resident Todd ”Ty ” Robben, in which he attempted to take Robben into custody on a misdemeanor contempt of court warrant out of Carson City. See https://nevadastatepersonnelwatch.wordpress.com/2013/03/03/justin-brothers-bail-bonds-illegally-broke-into-home-illegally-used-a-taser-on-ty-robben/

Robben’s door was broken down. he was “tased” at least twice, his tires were slashed and he had to bolt into a nearby field to escape, according to a South Lake Tahoe Police report. The charges against Lewis, filed by the EI Dorado County District Attorney’s office, include allegedly failing to obtain a California warrant for the capture of Robben, aggravated trespass for allegedly forcing his way into Robben’s home, alleged vandalism of a dwelling for breaking down the door, alleged battery for tasing Robben, and alleged damage to a vehicle for slashing Robben’s tires. Doug Lewis could not be reached for comment by press time.

Robben sought more serious felony charges and wonders why other individuals accompanying and assisting Lewis were not charged as well. He said he was nevertheless “relieved” that El Dorado County authorities had acted, and that his faith in the system had been restored somewhat after months of frustration over the handling of the case.

Robben protested in front of the South Lake Tahoe Police Department in late January. claiming the police were failing to take him seriously and investigate his case in a timely manner, due to his activism against government and a negative portrait painted of him by law enforcement in Nevada.

Hans Uthe, the Tahoe-based assistant district attorney. Said felony charges were not filed against Lewis largely because he had failed to get clearance from a California judge. “As a professional bounty hunter he should have known he had to do that. It would have been very easy for him to do.” And though Lewis was apparently assisted by others in his attempt to capture Robben, only he is being charged because he was the leader or boss of the pursuit, said Uthe. ” It was hi s decisions, his determinations how to proceed.” Uthe said. “We’re holding him responsible.”

In statements on the matter, police officials said they had made every effort to accommodate Robben, given time and staffing constraints. The police report was completed and released after the Tahoe Mountain News filed a California Public Records Act request.

Robben did compliment the police department for finishing the report when it did . The 164-page report contained 14 pages devoted to investigation of the alleged crimes and 150 pages of applicable statutes and legal precedents submitted by Robben.

Robben has filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the bail bond company, Justin Brothers Bail Bonds, that employed Lewis and has also protested in front of the their Carson City and Reno offices. Owner Dennis Justin said he had “no comment what so ever” about the suit or the charges filed against Lewis.

See https://nevadastatepersonnelwatch.wordpress.com/2013/03/10/charges-filed-in-justin-bros-bail-bonds-bounty-hunter-case/

At the time of Lewis’s alleged crimes against Robben, Robben was out on bail on charges including assault after attempting to serve a subpoena for a friend on a Nevada state official named Susan Martinovich with the Department of Transportation. The friend had filed suit against the department, claiming he was fired for exposing wrongdoing. The suit is similar to one filed by Robben against the Nevada Department of Taxation, his former employer, which is currently on appeal. Robben calls himself a “supporter of whistleblowers.”

The woman being served said she felt threatened and was accosted by Robben and later received a restraining order against him. Robben said the situation was all turned around and that she assaulted him by driving over his toe. Eventually. All charges were dropped,  except one – disorderly conduct – which will be dismissed if Robben complies with court conditions for a year.

Robben does have two other restraining orders against him including one by his brother from whom he has been estranged for five years with absolutely no contact and who lives in Florida. The other one was issued under false pretenses to an employee in his previous place of work who was angry with Robben reported him for sending pornography over government computers, Robben said.

The contempt of court warrant was issued – in error by Carson city Judge John Tatro, says Robben – after he supposedly failed to show up for a court check-in. The matter was cleared up when he later checked in.

Amnesty International has classified lasers as deadly weapons.

Noted bail bondsmen and bounty hunter Leonard Padilla commented on the actions of the bounty hunters. The easiest way to catch a fugitive is to talk them into surrendering, said Padilla. Something the bounty hunters allegedly did with Robben for ten minutes according to the police report, before breaking down his door which is permitted, said Padilla. If one is 100 percent sure. not 80 percent sure. Not 98 percent sure, but 100 percent sure, that the fugitive is inside. He said tasers must be deployed with care so as not to cause undue harm. “Not everyone can go and buy a taser and s tart tasing people. You have to have special training” Padilla said. Amnesty International has classified lasers as deadly weapons. Finally, the slashing of tires perplexed Padilla. After nearly 40 years in business, he has never used such a tactic, which he called “childish” and “comical.” The best time to catch someone is when they leave a dwelling to go to a car, he said. Or as they drive off.

In the police report, the bounty hunters said they didn’t ‘t want Robben to drive in what they said was a fragile mental slat. Stating he had been under psychiatric care, an assertion Robben vehemently denies. He was put on suicide watch
while initially in the Carson City jail,  a tactic used to imprison him in solitary confinement. Robben wrote he has been “certified as sane … has no prior criminal record … has never been hospitalized for mental health! This is character assassination’ of me.” He earlier provided a letter to the Mountain News from the EI Dorado County Department of Mental Health stating he does not qualify for services, so is therefore of sound mind, said Robben.

Additionally. Robben contends, police officers stood by while the bounty hunters went about their allegedly illegal activities and did not intervene while he was attacked and pursued. The report does not note any action taken by South Lake Tahoe police and states an officer was in the area at the time.

Bounty hunters do have broad powers to pursue, capture and detain fugitives. The report also said police declined to assist the bounty hunters given it was a misdemeanor, non-extraditable warrant out of another state. The report said the South Lake Tahoe Police did briefly search for Robben after he ran to try and convince him to give himself up. South Lake Tahoe Police spokesman Lt. David Stevenson said he would not comment further. The report said the bounty hunters continued to search for Robben for five hours after he fled. Robben said he hiked to a friend’s house and furtively hid out in his RV so the friend would not be charged with harboring a fugitive. He then made his way to the Black Jack Inn at Stateline where he watched the Giants win the playoffs
