I'm so damned mad I could. . .
This information was forwarded to me by The Orange Jeep Dad as it's apparently happening almost on his back porch.
Until she begins to expose a dirty little insider deal run by some of the city council members.
Then the police, acting in the finest tradition of secret Stasi police everywhere, arrested her.
Let's set the stage for this. Here are four minutes of some of the most damning and chilling video you may ever watch for the rest of your life. What makes it frightening is that it doesn't take place in Moscow or Beirut or Berlin or Bejing.
It doesn't even take place in Chicago or Seattle or San Francisco or New York.
It takes place in Small Town, America.
It's in Quartzite, Arizona today. Tomorrow, it could be in your town.
This wasn't the first time for Mrs. Jones. She filed a police harassment lawsuit against head thug Jeff Gilbert, who poses and is ostensibly paid as a police chief, and the city management.
Mrs. Jones publishes the Desert Freedom Press and has been critical of the Quartzite Police Department in the past--and in particular, of Jeff Gilbert. If you'll recall from the video, the chief is REPEATEDLY admonished by the Mayor, his BOSS, that he is out of order and in violation of the rules of the council.
The chief blatantly ignores the mayor, and in doing so, shits all over the First Amendment.
It seems, according to the mayor, that a great majority of the town live in fear of Gilbert and his police force. Now, before you go thinking this is hyped up hyperbole and grandstanding hysteria, check these two pieces out first. Then come back and tell me what you think.
In the words of Mayor Ed Foster, a retired United States Marine and former engineer for Wrigley Chewing Gum--
"He's just an insane person, that chief of police," the mayor said of Gilbert. "He's a Nazi ... he's completely out of control. He thinks he's running the town."
Mayor Foster said it's not just the police chief, but also the town manager and tax collector who are creating a terrifying atmosphere.
"People in town are scared to death of them," he said. "It's just a clear pattern of harassment and intimidation by this government. These people have run this town like they owned it. It's got to be fixed and I'm not going to quit until I see them in jail."
The mayor says the council has even precluded him from examining the payroll. He believes he's uncovered some possible financial wrongdoing involving checks being paid to unknown personnel, and he speculates the recipients could be councilmembers themselves.
"They're playing a sleight-of-hand with federal money," Foster said. "I've tried to get the FBI, the governor and attorney general involved, and no one has paid attention. But since this video, people are asking, 'What's going on in Quartzsite?'"
It's not just Mrs. Jones and the mayor that have legitimate concerns over Jeff Gilbert and his badged goons. It seems some of Gilbert's own cops have some big time problems with his tactics and operations and have filed grievances with AZPOST, the state's certification board and authority for law enforcement in Arizona.
Not just a handful, either. Ten sworn officers turned over evidence to the board last month and read a statement to a city council meeting.
Gilbert's response? More arrests.
The more I google for information and news about Quartzite, Arizona, the more horrified I become. Actually, strike that. The more pissed off I become.
Arizona--you have a problem. A big problem in a small town. You need to address it. Your fellow Arizonians are being treated no differently than Stalin or Hitler treated dissenters, or how the stinking Chi-comms treat dissenters.
Difference is, we have a First Amendment that allows political disagreement. We also have laws.
It appears that asswipe of a police chief couldn't give a damn about either.
He needs a new uniform. One with stripes. Or maybe a pink one, courtesy of Sheriff Joe.
Because what is happening in Anytown, America--in this case, Quartzite, Arizona--is against everything that America stands for.
