18 U.S. Code § 4 – Misprision of felony
Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 684; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, §, Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.)
It matters not rather it be Congress or our own local government authorities, if you get caught concealing a felony crime you can be prosecuted for a “Misprision of a Felony.”
This is just a little reminder to our former, current, and present police administrators of the LVMPD, and others. Nobody is going to forget the misdeeds and criminal acts against the Las Vegas community and the current and past honorable employees of the police department.
There is a lot for them to be held accountable for, and here is just a sample of what needs to be rectified and cleared up: Allegedly, 1981 child abuse and rape of a mentally retarded 13-year-old female by Sylvester Stallone, investigation stopped by Sheriff McCarthy; 1996 wrongful murder conviction of former LVMPD Ronald Mortensen;1996 Alamo, NV, murder cover-up of an LVMPD Registered Narcotics Informant; 2001 CCDC murder cover-up of Phillip LeMenn; 2006 murder cover-up of handcuffed prisoner Suave Lopez, by LVMPD detectives; 2007 evidence-tampering case and slighted conviction of O. J. Simpson; 2010 covered up killing of Trevon Cole during a faulty warrant raid on his residence; 2010 covered up killing of Eric Scott at the Costco store, and the subsequent evidence tampering of the camera equipment; 2010 covered up killing of Stanley Gibson and false flag subsequent unlawful termination of LVMPD Officer Jesus Arevelo and demotion of Lt. Dockendorf; the 2011 unlawful expenditure of 68 million dollars of taxpayer monies for a faulty police radio system and subsequent cover-up of the lawsuit settlement between the LVMPD, and the Harris Corporation; the 2013 Class action lawsuit by NHP Officers against the NHP, LVMPD, DEA, and NDI for the utilization of phony drug dogs, illegally used for probable cause to search suspected narcotic traffickers; the 2013 episode of LVMPD dissuading and forcing former Det. L. Araujo, and Sgt. S. Junge, to perjure themselves during legal deposition pursuant to the 2011 Federal Lawsuit filed by former Detective Gordon Martines against the LVMPD, Sheriff Douglas Gillespie, et al, and fourteen other high ranking police officials ( Federal lawsuit dismissed by Federal Judge George Foley Jr, in 2014); and presently, the recently just learned information regarding the involvement of the LVMPD, LAPD, Compton PD and LASD, in the illegal narcotics distribution scheme, code-named ‘White Fence,’ which possibly lead to the untimely death of ex-LAPD Homicide Detective Russell Poole on August 17, 2015, unbelievably inside the headquarters of the LAPD Homicide section, while allegedly discussing the corrupted involvement and complicity of certain police officials in the LAPD, LASD, and the LVMPD, involving the murder of Tupac, and Biggie Smalls (possible payment of a Helicopter to LVMPD from the Compton Police Department for services rendered).
I could go on and on and I will later, but for now that was just to whet everybody’s whistle; you may see more of this alleged corruption becoming exposed when the Feds finally start publishing their indictments for the 2007 covered up murder of LVMPD Officer Kevin Scott Dailey.
I sincerely hope the upper police administration is feeling the heat and the noose tightening around their necks, as they should, for not adequately, or even at all, investigating the death of an on-duty fully commissioned police officer that failed to show up for work at the CCDC, in the first week of November 2007, and then they failed to launch a full scale homicide investigation when LVMPD Officer Kevin Dailey’s severed head was found lying on the desert floor, near lake Mead in Henderson, by a volunteer civilian search party.
And to add insult to injury, the coroner’s autopsy report on LVMPD Officer Kevin Dailey vanished from the Clark County Coroner’s computer data base six hours after it was entered. I personally learned from a source, in April of 2015, that the cause of death for LVMPD Officer Kevin Scott Dailey was listed as “Undetermined.” It is pretty tough to sever your own head. Sources also reveal that LVMPD Officer Dailey’s family was told, by the LVMPD, that suicide was the cause of death. It seems that we have a lot of questionable suicide around here.
This is all very strange indeed, since I was working in the Robbery/Homicide bureau of the LVMPD from 1995 to 2014 and I never heard about this incident until legal depositions were obtained in June of 2013 from witnesses. As soon as I heard about this covered-up Homicide, I prepared a letter requesting help from the FBI, Justice Department, Senators Reid and Heller, Rep. Heck, the Nevada Attorney General, the Nevada Governor, U.S. Attorney Bogden, Sheriff Gillespie, and Clark County DA Wolfson. FBI Special Agent Joseph Dickey is the only one that responded to my letter and requested all of my legal depositions, which contained a tremendous amount of information regarding the corruption in our community and my poor beloved LVMPD.
That all being said and published, I wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year.
