primary is very important because it will determine the candidates for
various offices that will become open in November. The Sheriff’s race
is nonpartisan, and the two top vote-getters will be in a runoff in
November. It is a very important office for a number of reasons.
The primary reason for placing so much importance on this office is
because the Sheriff is the top peace officer in the County. He has
more power than the Federal Government. He will also be working with
the local district attorney on cases brought before that officer.
Evidence must be gathered and a lot of trust and respect must be shown
to the district attorney, and by the district attorney to the Sheriff.
It has been shown by depositions in a federal lawsuit that some of the
members of the hierarchy of the sheriff’s office are culpable in the
coverup of four murders going back as far as 1996. That means, of
course, that the current administration as well as past
administrations are culpable as well in the coverups. This could be
more than a little embarrassing to some of the candidates who have put
in their applications for the job of Sheriff. Especially for the one
who was “tapped” by the outgoing sheriff.
But there is another candidate who might be more embarrassed: that
would be Ted Moody. Moody has been named in a federal lawsuit that
implicates him rather deeply, and shows his obligation to the outgoing
sheriff. Do we want to take the gamble that he will be found innocent
of any wrongdoing? Should we take that chance with the top peace
officer in our county? Would it be better to have someone who
understands the Constitution of the United States of America, or
someone who pays no attention to the rights of the people guaranteed
by that document? This author wants someone who understands the
Constitution and the rights of the people. There is one applicant for
the post of Sheriff of Clark County that fits the description of what
is needed to clean up the corruption that is rampant in the sheriff’s
office. That applicant is Detective Gordon Martines.
The FBI is now investigating the coverups. One of the murders was
committed in 1996. That was 18 years ago. It is a difficult job to
uncover all of the facts in a murder that was committed only one month
ago. Going back 18 years makes the job difficult and time-consuming.
But the FBI’s forensic experts are the best. If only they could
present some evidence prior to the primary on June 10th, we could vote
with more confidence. But that may not be in the cards. We can pray
for a break, and we might also want to call the local FBI office to
find out how the investigation is going. This could have a big impact
on the election on June 10th.
It could also be that the Department of Justice doesn’t want another
constitutional sheriff to contend with, and the order is coming from
Washington, D. C. to go slow with the investigation. It would not be a
big surprise. Detective Martines is a member of the Constitutional
Sheriffs and Police Officers Association (CSPOA). That is a formidable
group. The powers in Washington, D. C. fear them. That is one reason
to take a closer look at Detective Martines. He is the only candidate
for Sheriff that showed any support for the Bundys in their fight for
freedom in Bunkerville. Sheriff Richard Mack, the founder of CSPOA was
there to give his support, as well as Stewart Rhodes of Oathkeepers.
Gutless Gillespie finally showed up to tell Mr. Bundy that the feds
are in charge. We don’t need one of Gutless Gillespie’s Goons in the
sheriff’s office. We need them out. Detective Martines is one who can
get them out of that very important office.
