Paranoia reigns – and for good reason

I am sure the people of Nevada County know that I requested the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to do an in-depth audit of four of the departments here in Nevada County administration. This request has already been sent and received by the FBI in both Washington, D.C., and Sacramento.

However, the shooting of Ezra Clow is obviously the straw that has broke the back of the proverbial camel. I have been deluged with reports of other actions, and these reports will be included in a supplemental contact with the FBI.

These reports run the gamut from lies, stealing, beatings and murders and also deal with a judicial system that is out of control. I would request that should anyone else wish to come forward with your experiences, I will be happy to include them with my report to the FBI.

The common thread of those I have heard from is there is absolutely no one they can trust, and this includes all the attorneys they have talked with in this county. Not true in all cases, but it seems that pinning on the badge gives the officer the right to lie, cheat, steal, and act promiscuously with their weapon.
