Comment on your video: Carson City 911 NV NDOT Dir. Susan Martinovich HIT and RUN and Sheriff COVER-UP
The Supreme Court should rebuke Carson City Judge John Tatro by what he did to Ty Robben by retaliating against Robben with a $500,000.00 dollar bail and 22 days in jail for trumped up charges related to serving a subpoena to former NDOT Director Susan Martinovich who had actually committed a “hit and run” by running over Robben’s foot!
The Carson City Sheriff covered up the incident and the Sheriff, DA Neil Rombardo and Judge Tatro lashed out at Robben, poisoned his jail food and then sent Nevada “bounty hunters” after Robben in Lake Tahoe, CA. Now Robben has filed criminal charges against the Justin Brothers Bail Bond company, their bounty hunter named Doug Lewis. Robben has a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the Justin Bros and he’s filed a Judicial Ethics complaint against the Judge Tatro. Tatro and DA Rombardo continue the relentless retaliation against Robben and are trying to have him incarcerated once again!
Robben is fighting back with massive protests in Carson City Nevada in front of the courthouse and State capital including the Nevada Supreme Court with big signs demanding Judge Tatro and DA Rombardo resign.
The Nevada Supreme Court better clean up the lower courts in Nevada, including the Justice Courts. Most people do not know that a case from the Justice Court can only be appealed to the District Court in most cases, not the Supreme Court. People can suffer serious damage by a deranged Justice Court Judge (as happens in Carson City John Tatro’s court) – have no “trial” with a jury and only appeal to the District Court Judge who is as corrupt as the Justice Court Judge… No oversight and people are very, very outraged about the “manifest abuse of desecration” and flagerant abuse of authority by acting under the color of law.
The Supreme Court wants a Nevada appellate court and they want voters to shell out millions of tax dollars to fund the scheme. With the recent D- corruption grade Nevada received by the center for Pubic Integrity in 2012, the Supreme MUST CLEAN UP and remove corrupt judges!
The Supreme Court order can be found here: PEREZ (JUAN) VS. DIST. CT. (STATE)
While the District Court, arguably, could have justified jailing Perez under its
contempt power, it violated these plain rules, It never formally held Perez in contempt.
It did not enter an order detailing the contemptuous behavior or specifying the
punishment. It did not cite Perez for criminal contempt or prove it beyond a reasonable
doubt. Instead, the Court summarily remanded him for displaying attitude and held him
without bail. Then in response to Perez’s motion for release or reinstatement of his
previously-posted bail, the Court increased his bail from $3,000,00 to $1,000,000,00
(which is tantamount to no bail given Perez’s financial ability), Other than Perez’s
alleged attitude, the record reveals no reason to warrant good cause for the increase.
The issue presented here does not simply concern the so-called fine print of
constitutional and statutory provisions on bail.
The deeper issue is guarding our founding principle that this is a government of laws, not of men, Rule of law means the “supremacy of regular power as opposed to arbitrary power.” Garner, Bryan A. (Editor in Chief), Black’s Law Dictionary, Abridged 9th Edition, p, 1137, (West Publishing Company, 2010). Permitting a court to increase bail based on a defendant’s demeanor is the mark of arbitrary power, Allowing it to justify its decision after the fact and under the guise of a defendant’s criminal history also exemplifies arbitrary power. Approving this under the court’s contempt power but relieving the court of its due process obligations prevents the ability to even review for capricious incarcerations, Our State in particular-with an elected judiciary-prizes accountability and safeguards against
misuses of judicial power, See Goldman v, Nevada Comm’n on Judicial Discipline, 108
Nev. 251, 256 (1992) (“Nevadans have historically manifested a pronounced sensitivity to potential abuses of judicial power.”); see also Houston v, Eighth Judicial Dist, Court I ex rel. County of Clark, 122 Nev. 544, 553 (2006) (noting contempt power should be used with care and circumspection).
No matter a defendant’s insolence, the rule of law still protects him. Despite the daily challenge of presiding over rude defendants with poor attitudes, the rule of law does not accept misbehavior becoming the basis for setting bail.
…Petitioner later appeared in district court for the appointment of counsel after his retained attorney withdrew from representation. After petitioner thanked the district court for appointing new counsel, the district court informed the petitioner, “You’re remanded.
Thank you. An attitude like that, you can sit in jail.” Petitioner remained in jail for fifteen days without bail. Upon petitioner’s motion for setting of reasonable bail, the district court reiterated that petitioner had a “terrible attitude in court.” Petitioner apologized. The district court then denied petitioner’s request for bail citing his prior narcotics-related convictions, failure to appear in court twelve years earlier in a different case, and prior use of multiple social security numbers and aliases. After petitioner’s court appointed public defender made a second request for bail to be set, the district court set bail at $1,000,000. At a subsequent hearing to stay the proceedings so that the petitioner could file this petition, the district court instructed petitioner’s counsel to make sure to inform this court about petitioner’s “attitude” in district court. The Nevada Constitution guarantees the people of Nevada the right to bail in non-capital offenses and prohibits the district court from imposing excessive bail. See Nev. Const. art. 1, §§ 6 and 7; see also NRS 178.484(1) (“[A] person arrested for an offense other than murder of the first degree must be admitted to bail.” (emphasis added)); St. Pierre v. Sheriff, 90 Nev. 282, 286, 524 P.2d 1278, 1280 (1974) (“[O]ur Constitution does not encompass inclusion of a non-capital offense as non-bailable.”). “This traditional right to freedom before conviction permits the unhampered preparation of a defense, and serves to prevent the infliction of punishment prior to conviction.” Stack v. Boyle, 342 U.S. 1, 4 (1951). In deciding a reasonable amount for bail the district court may consider “the nature of the offense charged, the penalty which may be inflicted, the probability of the appearance of the accused, his pecuniary condition, his character and reputation, and the circumstances surrounding the case relative to the likelihood of conviction.” Ex parte Jagles and Varnes, 44 Nev. 370, 195 P. 808 (1921); see also NRS 178.498; NRS 178.4853. However, “Bail must not be. . . more than the accused can reasonably be expected under the circumstances to give, for if so it is substantially a denial of bail.” Ex parte Malley, 50 Nev. 248, 253, 256 P. 512, 514 (1927).
Our review of the record reveals that the district court violated the Nevada Constitution in two ways. It denied the petitioner bail for fifteen days and then imposed a bail amount which greatly exceeded the amount the petitioner could reasonably be expected to pay. As the real party in interest notes in its answering brief, the district court imposed a bail amount that was fifty times greater than the Clark County standard bail schedule for category B felonies. In light of the district court’s failure to consider all of the relevant factors, see NRS 178.498, its stated reason for remanding petitioner to custody, petitioner’s indigent status, and the amount of bail, we can only conclude that the district court was attempting to punish petitioner for his attitude without utilizing the procedures provided for in Nevada law. See NRS 22.030(1) (explaining when a person may be punished summarily for contempt); NRS 22.010 (defining contempt). For these reasons, we conclude that the district court manifestly abused its discretion by remanding petitioner to custodywithout bail for fifteen days and imposing excessive bail. See State v.Dist. Ct. (Armstrong), 127 Nev. , 267 P.3d 777, 779-80 (2011)
(discussing when a writ of mandamus will issue). We therefore
ORDER the petition GRANTED AND DIRECT THE CLERK OF THIS COURT TO ISSUE A WRIT OF MANDAMUS instructing the district court to vacate its order setting bail at $1,000,000, set bail at the original amount imposed by the justice court, and recuse itself from presiding over this matter.

By FRANCIS MCCABE – LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
On Tuesday, the Nevada Supreme Court rebuked Smith, ordering Perez’s bail returned to $3,000 and the case moved to another judge’s courtroom.
The district court manifestly abused its discretion by remanding (Perez) to custody without bail for fifteen days and imposing excessive bail,” stated the Supreme Court order signed by justices Michael Cherry, James Hardesty and Ron Parraguirre.
Carson City Sheriff Kenny furlong needs to be asked the real questions. This guy and his deputies are corrupt as hell and the Sheriff is one big RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) operation. Please read the circa 2006 Topox called “Corrupt Law enforcement in Carson City Nevada” by Patty Pruett, Dayton Nevada. We’ll post some of the text at the bottom of this story. We also uncovered a Grand Jury investigation suggestion ALL CARSON CITY SHERIFF personnel should be DRUG TESTED.
Some of this may seem outlandish until you remember these things happened in 1989 South Lake Tahoe when the city mayor named Terry Trupp was busted for a major cocaine trafficking cartel and just recently Johnny Poland of the SLTPD was hooked up on charges of obstructing justice, evidence tampering and aiding and embedding the “Mexican Moffia” in South Lake Tahoe.See our other website at http://SLTPDwatch.wordpress.com
Kenny will you do a show with us and our video cameras? …And why did you come into my cell two times and give me a “stink eye” death look? Is it true what you deputies are saying about you?
Published on Mar 26, 2013 Watch Carson City Sheriff Kenny Furlong answer important questions from some influential women in our community
Kenny Furlong stated his position on “gun control” where he did elaborate that because of the Ihop shootings, he would be compelled to confiscate firearms in Carson City, NV. Although, he believes it won’t happen and he was primary focused on multi-round auto and semi-auto firearms.
Gun Control at 20:00 – Kenny wants to ban weapons (at least assault style weapons) because of the Ihop incident. In that case a Norinco MAK90 was modified from semi to fully auto. Other Sheriff Associations from around the State of Nevada and the rest of the union are fully supporting the US Constitution and 2nd amendment rights, Sheriff Furlong is not.
Below are Nevada Sheriffs that support gun rights:
- Ed Kilgpore Humboldt NV
- Benjamin D. Trotter Churchill NV
- Tony DeMeo Nye NV
Is your daughter Kendra Furlong fully recovered from her battles with crank (meth) addiction?
Sheriff Furlong and Kendra Furlong – Crystal Darkness
Is the Sheriff office under any investigations? Rumors are rampant that federal grand money is “missing”? We heard the FBI was investigation misappropriation of funds related to Kenny Furlong using the Carson City “credit card” to pay for friends vehicles impounds after DUI’s (which were covered up)… Is this true?
We hear of many “cover ups” and other “scandals” concerning the Carson City Sheriff’s department including last years incident with former NDOT Director, Susan Martinovich where it’s alleged the Sheriff covered up that fact Susan Martinovich essentially was involved in a “hit and run” and the victim was actually charged with trumped up charges that were later dropped. This seems like a blatant attempt to cover-up Susan Martinovich’s criminal involvement in that incident, correct?
Kenny Furlong, you did go to Carson City High School, correct (you talk about that in the video). Interesting that Susan Martinovich and Justice of the Peace Judge John Tatro all went to the same High School and played significant roles in the hit and run coverup. What’s your take on that Furlong?
In recent photo shots, you Kenny furlong seem to hanging out with Carson City District Attorney Neil Rombardo a lot. We’ve seen you dancing with the stars along with Neil Rombardo and giving blood with him as well. Are you gay? What exactly is your “friendship” with Neil Rombardo? Seems like there should be a better “separation of power” in such a small incestuous little city like Carson.
We hear of food poisoning and unsafe and inhumane conditions and treatment of inmates at your Carson City jail. We note that statistics show 20% of incarcerated people are actually innocent. Regardless of innocence or guilt, the facts show that there are a high number of alleged “suicides” that occur in the Carson City jail. Released inmates report tainted food with drugs including methadone. The showers have excessive mold and airborne insects and diseases like MRSA skin infection is rampant in the Carson City jailhouse. We hear that a medical malpractice and civil rights lawsuit is imminent against you and the Carson City court system including Judge John Tatro…
What exacly is Kenny Furlong’s position on gun owners rights? We understand he agrees with the Obama administration.
Finally, with all this controversy, what are your plan Kenny Furlong for the future? Do you plan on staying in law enforcement or are you getting your affairs in order to go to prison?
These problems seem outlandish, but it has happened to others. See this story:
The California press refuses to cover this true story of the torture of a senior citizen milk man
The Los Angeles Times is so corrupt and whored out to its corporate interests that it won’t even cover this story! There is torture and abuse of farmers happening right in Los Angeles, and the LA Times absolutely refuses to cover the story! How’s that for pathetic journalism? (If the LA Times actually starts to cover this story, I will retract this paragraph. But as of this writing, the LA Times has done nothing to cover this huge story of government abuse of innocent citizens.)
In fact, to date no newspaper in California has covered this story of torture and abuse of the California milk man. There is complete silence on it. A total cover-up. The lamestream media wants you to believe this never happens in California.
But these pictures don’t lie. The recorded testimony of James Stewart is factual and truthful.
Watch the video, hear it yourself and compare to what happened to Ty Robben in the Carson City jail including poisoned food, solitary confinement, red bracelet indicating a felon or danger, inhuman jail conditions and lack of jail personnel ethics, violations of law and human rights, etc :
Corrupt Law enforcement in Carson City Nevada
Posted in the Washington Post Forum
Yesterday a friend of mine went to the Casrson City “Motel 6 to get her daughters things” that were left there by “Cops” about a week prior after they arrested her Minor daughter for drug possesion. The Girl was with many other people, who were doing drugs also! None were arrested! Only her! The Girl is “Related to Officer Bill Abbott”!
Officer Abbott was just “Busted down from tri-net” DRUG task force! After the mother of the girl began to “Fight back” against the Corruption!
Now her daughter is in Juvinial, and yesterday a Cop went to the Motel 6, and tried to “Plant drugs” On the Mother/Estranged half sister of that Cop!
It’s getting “Ugly in Carson City Nevada”! These Cops are out of Control! And so is Sheriff
Kenny Furling! Our Carson City Sheriff will now try to plant drugs on those of us “Fighting back” against their “Already Corrupt sheriffs department!”
I am allerting the Public that none of us do drugs and are at risk for being “Set up” as revenge for a Long battle for Justice in Carson City Nevada.
Send help form the “Outside”! Send reporters and Crews to “Write about our struggle for justice”!
Patty Pruett, Dayton Nevada.
Corrected Special Grand Jury Report
The community of Carson City would have been much better served had the Carson City District Attorney’s office arrested and prosecuted John and James Bustamante with the vigor that was shown in the arrest and prosecution of Rolland Weddell. Given, through testimony to this Grand Jury, that:
