Basically, if a law enforcement officer becomes aware of a felony crime and he doesn’t report it, then he/she has committed a felony crime. This provision comes with the job and is associated with taking the Oath of Law Enforcement.
So, with that being said, our current and past police administrations have committed, at the minimum, numerous felony crimes, whereby all that is needed for them to be convicted of a felony crime is to have direct knowledge of a felony crime and have consciously ignored, omitted, or have failed to report this felony crime to the proper authorities.
For the past decade, I have continuously made the upper police administration of the LVMPD aware of numerous felony crimes that were committed by LVMPD personnel, which have been ignored and have even sparked direct threats against me to remain silent and not bring up these criminal acts.
On November 7, 2010, retaliatory acts by the LVMPD were committed against me, which caused me to have a medical episode which essentially ended a 39-year law enforcement career. I brought these past criminal acts not only to the attention of the LVMPD police administration, but also to the Federal Government, FBI, DA’s Office, Attorney General’s Office, and the Justice Department.
In January of 2011, I filed an EEOC Federal complaint against the LVMPD, Sheriff Gillespie, et al., and fourteen high-ranking police officials for racial discrimination, threats to life, unlawful termination from employment, age discrimination, and other violations, totaling 19 counts.
Since filing this federal complaint, numerous other egregious crimes committed by the LVMPD police administration have resurfaced — this all happening during legal depositions that were taken from witnesses in June/July of 2013, which are now part of a legal record attached to my 2011 Federal Complaint. (See Gordon Martines vs. LVMPD, Sheriff
Douglas Gillespie, et al.)
All that not withstanding, my federal complaint was dismissed by Judge George Foley Jr, in March of 2014, and I was formally terminated from employment for being on Medical Leave too long.
I can’t help but think that the resurfacing of all these egregious crimes committed by the LVMPD, which included multiple murders, thefts, evidence-tampering, rape, false arrest and imprisonment, destruction of evidence, criminal cover-ups, malfeasance… etc, would have literally blown the lid off the LVMPD. That, by the way, was the exact sentiment of Judge George Foley Jr., in May of 2013, during an early evaluation hearing regarding my federal complaint at the Federal court house.
I have made sure that any felony criminal offenses committed by LVMPD personnel or others that I have become aware of have been properly transmitted to the LVMPD, FBI, and Justice Department via fax, email or letter, thus making all aware of these felony crimes, which strongly suggests that these agencies are directly complicit in the commission of these felony crimes.
Most all agencies have acknowledged receipt of my correspondence, and even the FBI requested copies of all legal depositions, in August of
2013, by Special Agent Joseph Dickey.
In September of 2013, I received information and corroborating documentation that then Attorney General Brian Sandoval, now Governor
Brian Sandoval, conspired along with then Governor Kenny Guinn, to illegally transfer one billion dollars of Nevada Taxpayer Monies into
the private bank accounts of EICON (Employees Insurance Company of Nevada), during the early years of 2000.
This crime was investigated by then Deputy Attorney General David Otto, Esq., who later filed a complaint against EICON, and submitted this complaint to the Washoe County District Court in 2006.
There since has been no movement or acknowledgement regarding this submitted complaint, and now the actual amount that was stolen from Nevada taxpayers, with interest, is approaching TWO BILLION DOLLARS.
Again, I produced a letter that depicted this information with supporting documentation, and sent this information to the U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden, Nevada Attorney General, Clark County DA, Clark County Sheriff, FBI, Justice Department in Washington, and to senators Dean Heller and Harry Reid.
The only agency that responded was the Justice Department in Washington D. C., which indicated that they weren’t authorized to investigate this kind of theft. In other words, they all decided not to acknowledge this information or to deal with this politically explosive information.
Well, all I can say is that it is just too bad for them, because I am going to continue to flood the system with this information until I force the powers that be to do their job, obey their sworn Oath, or eventually face being charged with a Misprision of a Felony.
IN GOD WE TRUST
