Hannah Fizer: How Lack of Police Accountability Let an Innocent Woman Get Shot 5 Times - RTR Truth Media


Hannah Renee Fizer was the all American girl next door in small town USA. She was pretty, kind, smart, loved, and by all indications totally harmless. At 25 years old she was a hard working young lady on her way to work when Deputy Jordan Schutte allegedly pulled her over for running a red light, but what happened after that remains shrouded in secrecy. Secrecy made possible by a deep rooted culture of cronyism and nepotism with a bureaucracy designed to create excuses and an unwillingness to enter the modern age where cameras are supposed to keep police in check.

 PLEASE BE ADVISED :Cyrus Sullivan of Cop-blaster and our team prepared a video report of the information shared on the RTR Radio Show on this story. We had a major computer malfunction and are in the process of recovering the files. We expect to have the re[port ready by morning in which case we request that you come back and share the heck out of it. We make no profit  doing this. We do it for the truth, for Hannah and her family. Please help us.

Thank you

Team RTR

Initial Reports


At around 10PM on June 13, 2020, Hannah Fizer was driving to her job at the Eagle Stop convenience store in Sedalia, Missouri. She allegedly ran a traffic light on West Broadway Boulevard, was caught by a PCSO deputy, and he made her pull over in the parking lot between Lemaire’s Cajun Catfish and Seafood House, and the Comfort Inn Suites. One man, who wanted to remain anonymous citing fear of professional consequences, told the Kansas City Star that he saw a PCSO vehicle with flashing lights following a car and then he heard a man yell "stop, stop," followed by five "pops."(see Shouts and gunshots: Witness recalls fatal shooting of unarmed Sedalia woman by deputy). He did not report hearing anyone threaten anybody, but the PCSO says otherwise. The video below later surfaced on social media and is believed to be the earliest publicly available footage of the incident taken by a bystander about a block away after Hannah was killed. You can clearly see that backup had not yet arrived and there is just a single parked silver/gray SUV. The SUV had flashing lights on top, no PCSO markings on the side, and hideous chrome hubcaps.


Initial media reports the day after the shooting quoted Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP) spokesman Andy Bell as saying that Hannah "refused to identify herself, stated she was armed and verbally threatened to shoot the deputy" according to the Associated Press. MSHP had taken over the investigation because it involved a PCSO deputy and it would have been a conflict of interest for the PCSO to investigate it. Bell also stated that he did not know if Hannah had a gun, so initially it appeared to most reasonable people that did not know Hannah that the deputy shot her in self defense.

On June 16th, MSHP announced that no gun was found in Hannah's car. Then people started asking questions and those that knew Hannah began speaking out. Her friends and family painted the picture of a real sweetheart that would never harm let alone threaten to shoot anyone. Hannah's father John Fizer told KMBC that Hannah "was not a perfect angel by any means. She liked to drink and smoke a little weed sometimes, but by no means was she violent. She was the kind of person that wouldn't hesitate to give a homeless person $10." He also said that if she had anything in her hand at all it would have been her phone "because she always had her phone in her hand." Her phone was recovered by MSHP and sent to the state crime lab for examination, but it is not known what evidence if any is on that phone.

Radio Recording Surfaces


Cop Watch St. Louis obtained some of the radio communications from that night. It appears to be from the local Sedalia Police Department (SPD). You can hear someone talking about the situation unfolding between the PCSO deputy and Hannah. The person on the radio is obviously relaying the content of a previous call made by the PCSO deputy that pulled Hannah over in which he accused her of having a gun and threatening to shoot him. At about 25 seconds in you can hear the deputy say "shots fired."


To the untrained ear this video might seem to support the theory that Hannah threatened the deputy, that he feared for his life, and that he shot her thinking she had a gun. To those with more experien this video shows that the deputy had plenty of time to think about what he was doing. If he really feared for his safety, why did he take the time to make a call before shooting someone that he claimed was armed and threatening to shoot him? Think about this, if you were that deputy and you pulled someone over, that person yelled out that they had a gun, threatened to shoot you, and you thought you saw a gun in their hand, wouldn't you start shooting right away? Would you say to yourself "hold on a minute, I need to make a call first?" Making a call and waiting as long as he did are not the actions of someone in fear of imminent death. They sound like the actions of someone trying to create a record that supports the use of force. It is common practice at virtually every law enforcement agency in America for their members to yell out justifications for using force when using force whether or not that force is really justified. The most common example is yelling out "stop resisting" whenever they make a forceable arrest even if the victim is not resisting. By yelling "stop resisting" they can blame any injuries on the person being arrested and then refer to audio from blurry body cam footage and say "see, he was resisting, you can hear me telling him to stop resisting." Once the appearance of resistance is created then the officer is usually free use choke holds, deliver as many "focused blows" as he likes, and accuse the arrestee of assault.

Official Response


Pettis County Sheriff Kevin Charles Bond addressed the lack of a firearm in Hannah's car in an interview with The Kansas City Star (see video below). In that interview he defended the actions of his deputy by saying "obviously it was a non-compliant situation." He went on to explain that his deputies do not wear body cameras and that their vehicles do not have dash cameras, "we do not have body cameras nor do we have uh, in car video, um uh, about three years ago we did have however technical difficulties, we had that a failure and we also had problems with the devices and those devices have not been replaced." From that explanation one can reasonably conclude that those devices technically made life difficult for deputies by deterring them from doing their jobs however they want to do them, so learning how to use devices that are user friendly is not a priority. Bond concludes the interview by claiming to lack funds to fix the problem and trying to get those funds. That is typical bureaucratic rubbish from someone that just wants to pass off the blame.


Protests


The people of Sedalia, Missouri did not buy Kevin Bond's explanation, they did not believe that Hannah threatened the deputy, and they took to the streets demanding justice. Sedalia, Missouri is a small tightly knit rural mid-western town with a conservative population of about 20,000. It is not so small that everyone knows everybody, but it is so small that everybody knows someone that knows people that know everybody. According to Best Places, 70.4% of Pettis County voted Republican in the last election and they have voted Republican in the last five Presidential elections. They are predominately Christian and pro-law enforcement. Despite living in one of the last places one would expect to see an anti-police brutality rally, the people of Sedalia took to the streets demanding justice. In the video below you can see people peacefully picketing PCSO headquarters demanding the name of the shooter.


Trying to Get Records


The video above concludes in part by mentioning false accusation made by Sheriff Bond against CopBlaster.com in an open letter that he published online and sent to the media. In that letter Kevin Bond said "last night I received an extortion email to release my name and home address on social media if I do not comply with unreasonable demands." That is not true. Cop Blaster addressed Bond's accusation in an article titled "Pettis County Sheriff Kevin C. Bond Refuses to Comply with FOIA" which contains copies of communications between the site's owner and Kevin Bond. It began with a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request sent directly to the PCSO through their website. The FOIA request read as follows:
"I request a copy of your current staff roster and hiring dates for all employees under the Freedom of Information Act. I also request the staff schedule for all shifts for the date of June 13, 2020."
The reason for requesting those documents specifically was that Kevin Bond had already admitted in his interview with the Kansas City Star that the deputy that shot Hannah "has been an employee of the Sheriff's office since 2007." From that information Cop Blaster believed that if we could get the requested documents that it would not be difficult to figure out which deputies have been employed by the department since 2007. The PCSO is a small department, so there probably are less than a handful of deputies that were hired that year and it would not be surprising if there is only one deputy that was hired in 2007 that is still working there. If there were more than one then the shift schedule would probably show which deputy was both hired in 2007 and working on June 13th. Kevin Bond obviously knew this and personally responded to the request first thing the following morning. His response read:
"Thank you for your inquiry. I am the custodian of records for the Pettis County Sheriffs Office. Under 610.100.3RSMO, portions of a record or document of a law enforcement officer or agency that contains information reasonably likely to pose a clear and present danger to the safety of a person shall be closed. As a result, I cannot comply with your request at this time." - Kevin Bond
Sheriff Bond's response may appear like a boiler plate denial for information, but the timing and manner of his response was unusual. Cop Blaster has sent FOIA requests to several agencies for various things in recent months. Those agencies include police departments and sheriff's offices. Not once has the head of those organizations responded personally and the people that do handle public records requests have responded with a decision in less than 24 hours. Bond's personal involvement creates the appearance that he is personally controlling the flow of information for the purpose of preventing people from finding out who shot Hannah.

Cop Blaster responded to Bond's denial by writing an article about him that included information from public records about him. A reply was then sent to Bond containing an offer to remove some of that information should he either name the shooter or comply with the FOIA request. At no time did Cop Blaster threaten to release any of his information if he did not do something. As a result of Bond's non compliance with FOIA and the Missouri Sunshine Law, no one was able to name the shooter for some time. Protests continued on about a weekly basis.

Hannah Fizer's Funeral


On June 20th, Hannah Fizer's funeral service was broadcasted live on Facebook and the video of that broadcast is still available today. Unfortunately, embedding is not allowed, but if you would like to watch it you can click here.

Surveillance Camera Disclosed


On June 23rd, MSHP released information saying that the surveillance camera of a nearby restaurant had recorded the entire incident, but did not have any audio. MSHP has not released the video to the public, but KMBC has described the description of the video as :
"Missouri State Highway Patrol investigator described the surveillance video as showing the Pettis County deputy make contact with 25-year-old Hannah Fizer on June 13 before drawing his gun. Fizer, who had been pulled over for speeding and careless driving, can be seen moving in her car before the deputy fired his weapon" - KMBC
If that description is accurate, then it contains no evidence to suggest that Hannah posed any threat to the deputy whatsoever. Moving around your car during a traffic stop does not justify unleashing a hail of bullets on your car. Assuming for a second that Hannah threatened the deputy as described, even Kevin Bond admitted that threats do not justify the use of deadly force. The KMBC article goes on to say that the deputy himself stated that Hannah was trying to film him with her phone. If that is true then the deputy knew or at least should have known that the object she was holding or reaching for was probably her phone. This also raises the question, did Hannah say she was shooting him with a video camera? If that is what she said then there is no justification for shooting her. Even if the deputy could not tell what she was holding and thought it could be anything including a gun, that does not justify opening fire like that.

The passage or time and lack of answers made the family frustrated and worried that they may never find justice for Hannah, but they also did not want to appear anti-law enforcement, so they continued picketing and voicing their concerns so that Hannah's memory would not fade away. They have been waiting patiently for the system to do the right thing as the video below shows:

The Killer's Name Revealed?


On July 8th, Hannah's father had obviously become tired of waiting and posted the name of the man he believes killed his daughter on Facebook. John Fizer's post read as follows:

"Got his name finally...Now I just need to know WHY? The name came from a very reliable source, and if he, or she, wishes to put themselves out there, that's fine with me, but I wont. But you cannot get any closer than 99.9 % sure. So I'm going with it; and if it isn't the right cop, then I apologize in advance, and Pettis County can come forward and once again protect their man by saying this isn't the guy, otherwise we can take it to the full 100% that this IS the officer that murdered my beautiful child; my only biological seed, that will never bare me grandchildren, as the last of my DNA lies dead in a cold grave. Officer Jordan Schutte, you killed more than one person that night, I just want you to know that. You crushed me and that beautiful girls mother, brother, boyfriend and best friend, and several others. Our lives will never be the same again. You made a horrible mistake that night, one that can never be undone. And there is absolutely no excuse whatsoever for you putting ONE, let alone FIVE slugs into my precious little harmless, 140 pound beautiful baby girl. But your name is out there now. Your buddies did a good job hiding you for awhile; longer than I would have expected actually, for such a high profile case as this, but now we know who you are. And if for some crazy chance it's not you, then we will see how long it takes for them to clean your name up. But I have a feeling we wont be hearing from them. So with that, that's all I have to say for now. You'll have your day in court just like I always did. And, like you, I was guilty, and justice was served..." - John Fizer


Mr. Fizer removed his post quickly but not before several people copied it and sent it to Cop Blaster. He then posted a follow up which reads:
"I'm so beside myself, that if I'm not careful I will lose myself in this. I jump the gun. I shouldn't have posted that. I have lawyers that tell me to just stay calm and let them WORK. It's just so hard for me not to take off like a mad man pursuing this issue. And the very thought of this man getting away with this, with cop immunity, just makes me plum sick. So I apologize for jumping the gun. I need to just chill and let justice work, as I pray it will. I let my pain and hurt finally turn into anger, the one thing I was trying so hard not to let happen. And when I got his name, I just flipped. I'm better than that, and I apologize. I'm just sick over this, and I miss my daughter so much that I can't even imagine life without her, and she's only been gone a short while. So once again, thank you ALL for all your love and support. You people have been so good. You have paid probably half of this funeral bill already. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate that. The love and support has flooded us. Hannah would be so proud of all of you, because your hearts have proven to be as good as her's. Love and appreciate each and every one of you. God bless..." - John Fizer
That follow up post is still live on Facebook. That post made it obvious to Cop Blaster and any other reasonable person that the post multiple people had copied was most likely genuine or at the very least did in fact name a name. Hannah's entire family has conducted themselves with the utmost patience and dignity throughout this ordeal. They have shown that they are not the kind of people that would just throw a name out there unless they were absolutely sure. To just throw a name out there would be entirely inconsistent with the character that they have demonstrated so far. The PCSO and MSHP remain silent on this of course, so Cop Blaster decided to put faith in the Fizer family and help them spread the word. Within hours, an anonymous source contacted Cop Blaster with a link to what the source called "his mother in law's Facebook page" which contained a picture of an individual that has since been identified as Jordan Daniel Schutte. Cop Blaster compared that picture with PCSO staff photos found online and found a match. That match was wearing a jailer uniform in a staff composite photo dated around the same time that Schutte is listed in public records as working at the jail (click here to learn more about Jordan Schutte). That photo was then shared on social media. The next day, someone believed to be associated with the family created the following meme using a composite image created by Cop Blaster:


This post was shared online by members of the Fizer family one of whom said something like "f*ck it, why not?" Oddly, the family members later deleted the image from their Facebook profiles, but other members of the community continued to post it. We find this pattern of posting information, removing it, and never disavowing its accuracy to be very suspicious. We believe that this is the behavior of a family that still wants to have a little faith that law enforcement will do the right thing and do not want to piss off the PCSO, while at the same time doing what they can to make the truth heard. The reluctance to piss them off could be out of hope that their good faith will be rewarded, or possibly out of fear of reprisal from a department that can literally do whatever they want.

Responses to the naming of Schutte were suspicious. Kevin Bond was quick to release a statement denying that another deputy was the shooter when random people not associated with the family were circulating a different name during the days following the shooting, but Bond has not released any statement at all to confirm or deny that Schutte is the shooter. We believe that if he were innocent that Bond would have said so by now. Members of the Schutte family have been silent as well. They have been deleting their social media accounts. In one case, Schutte's wife removed his last name from her Facebook profile before deleting it entirely. Sources on the ground in Sedalia have reported that Schutte himself has not been seen since the incident. Those sources are members of the community that have been working with Cop Blaster by providing information. Some of those sources claim to live near Schutte.

Does Freemasonry Play a Role?


Cop Blaster was contacted by the creator of the Fight for Hannah Facebook Group with an unusual theory. She wanted to know if we could figure out how many PCSO employees are also members of the local Masonic Granite Lodge. We viewed this theory with great skepticism at first because the internet is full of conspiracy theories involving Freemasonry, but decided to look into it because we thought that if we could show that the shooter and other members of the PCSO were part of the same fraternal organization that it might explain the efforts to protect the shooter. Sedalia is home to Masonic Granite Lodge #272. The new SPD station has a plaque dedicating the building to that lodge, they hold several banquets for law enforcement each year, and one ceremonial photo contains a man that looks a lot like Kevin Bond.

When Jordan Schutte was named by the Fizer family, members of the community were quick the point out that Schutte is a legacy deputy. By that we mean that his father was a well known and respected member of the PCSO for many years before his death. According to his obituary, Denny Schutte was a member of "Granite Lodge 272." Kevin Bond has been with the PCSO in one form or another since the 1980s so he has probably known Jordan Schutte all his life. The PCSO is a tightly knit organization, so Bond and Denny Schutte were probably friends or at least had an amicable professional relationship. It looks like Jordan Schutte had big shoes to fill and was not living up to his legacy. That would explain whey he worked at the jail for so long and brings one to question how he became an actual deputy? Did he go through the training and selection process that everyone else does, or were those just a formality for someone destined to be hired because of his connections? Could this shooting be the result of just an incompetent deputy that did not know what he was doing and should not have been working there at all? We may never know.

MSHP Finished Its Investigation


MSHP officially finished its investigation this past week and turned their findings over to Pettis County Prosecutor Phillip Trent Sawyer. MSHP did not release the name of the deputy or any more new information. Activists are now trying to put public pressure on Sawyer to do the right thing.



Conclusion


Hannah Fizer should be alive today and a killer is on the loose getting paid for "administrative leave." When a department is plagued with cronyism and nepotism, deliberately fails to wear body cameras or put dashboard cameras in their vehicles, and treats the word of a fellow deputy like the word of god then everyone has a problem. This is America and in America everyone is entitled to basic inalienable rights, those rights include the right to move around your vehicle during a traffic stop without being shot five times no matter what you are accused of saying. The PCSO is just one example of an organization riddled with problems that are systemic nation wide. Allowing these problems to persist in our country endangers the lives of every American. As long as deputies like Hannah's killer are not held accountable the next Hannah Fizer could be anyone, maybe even you.

If you want to learn more about Hannah Fizer we recommend the following archives and Facebook groups:



UPDATE: Since this article was published an anonymous source known to be connected with the recent Hannah Fizer Protests has stated to RTR Truth Media who relayed to Cop Blaster that Kevin Bond and Denny Schutte were the best of friends.

UPDATE: On August 4th, a special prosecutor was assigned to the case (see Stephen Sokoloff Appointed as Special Prosecutor in Hannah Fizer Case).

UPDATE: On August 7th, Sheriff Bond launched a smoke screen in the media by covering an arrest of a guy accused of tailing the wrong deputy back in June. The story was clearly presented in a manner intended to make people think it was recent. Sheriff Bond denied that several deputies named on social media back in June were the shooter, but Schutte was not named until July and he is the only one named by the family. Bond has not denied Schutte. Read more: Kevin Bond Launches Smoke Screen Public Relations Campaign
 
UPDATE: On August 22nd, the Director of the Pettis County IT Department spoke out against Sheriff Bond saying that Bond lied to the public about why his deputies do not wear body cameras. Read more:  Pettis County IT Director Luke Goosen Speaks Out Against Sheriff Bond
 
UPDATE: An admin of the original and largest Facebook group seeking justice for Hannah has started her own group called Justice for Hannah Fizer. Among her reasons for leaving Sign the petition Justice for Hannah include Don Hockaday's censorship of the group. That censorship has included a rule against naming names of deputies people suspect of killing Hannah, banning the Cop Blaster Facebook Page from posting in the group for posting links to pages doxxing PCSO members, and deleting comments critical of him or his actions.  

UPDATE: Special Prosecutor Stephen Sokoloff ruled this murder justified because Hannah could be seen reaching around her car, the deputy claimed she was trying to shoot him, and he thinks that would cause a reasonable deputy to fear for his safety. No evidence proves that she threatened him. This decision is essentially a license to kill any motorist that reaches for anything in their car as long as the deputy says they were threatened.

Off topic but related Side Note: As a life-long Conservative Christian it took me a long time to come to the realization that the two party system has been, is, and will continue to be the problem. I saw something very subtle during Trump's presidency that many of his supporters either could not see because of the fractured thinking that the seeming "cult of statism" causes, or they see and have become conditioned to accept a "lesser of two evils". I not only reject the selection of evil based on the perception that at least in my flavor of political ideology that evil would be better than the other opposing ideology"s evil is... but I believe this is a very deliberate form of mind control. Our founders warned us about this ad nauseum. And the very same party that claims such a high regard for the founders makes the bitter taste of reality well known simply by looking at their near worship of the profession of law enforcer.  In truth it should disgust them all to feel the need for agencies who regularly seek military surplus to arm itself with. This is not to say in certain circumstances it is not needed. But when the culture of the entire party becomes such that it glorifies this endeavor, we have got to realize how far off the righteous path we have been taken.
1 - In the oval office he and Diane Feinstein sitting right next to him as cozy as two old friends... and moments later he was telling his vice president that like in the case of Nicholas Cruz he "likes to take the guns first and "worry about due process later" because often times it just "takes too long to get to court". Essentially and quite literally Trump just advocated for the ELIMINATION of due process which is a very Bolshevik concept. To make matters worse he was also deceiving the Union. Claiming that Law Enforcement "needed more tools" pointing to the Stoneman Douglas shooting as reason, when he failed to mention the Obama era Marxist federal grant program that has been proven inconclusively to be a corrupt failure that saw officers being told not to arrest students of "color" as with the reduction of crime stats the district would receive increasing amounts of grant money. Cruz was in the program. Cruz held a gun to someones head which in Florida is more than enough tools to justify his arrest, incarceration and by default him to have any weapons confiscated rightfully. Twice the FBI was notified about his threats. Once by a friend of a very close childhood friend of mine, so I have the full story of their communication. That should have been the end of it,That is if he wasn't being groomed for the role as well. Some have argued that Trump may not have known. I say - bullshit, not only did I discuss it with Dana Loesch's personal assistant, but the White House was well aware of it. They commented on the program (unrelated to the shooting)
2 - Trump signed by Executive Order ( * a Martial Law Totalitarian Fiat originating with EO 1 signed by Abraham Lincoln who essentially suspended the Constitution.) the largest redistribution of wealth - Socialist stimulus in not just American but in world history, doing so with little more than a few whispers from the core of the party, but thank God a few called it as they saw it like Thomas Massie who seems to be one of the few actual founding stock type morally sound individuals in DC

* Lincoln suspended Habeus Corpus, had printers jailed without charge or trial and ordered an attack without the consent of Congress upon the American people not long after deceiving the Republic with words of pursuing those who would pervert the Constitution. Our true Republic was overthrown by him, having nothing to do with the cause or purpose of the war itself. He and Judges fearful of his retaliation ruled that essentially the Declaration of Independence was perpetrated by lawless traitors when he and they declared that there was no right to reject association with a body politic i.e. the crown...as it was no different than what the Southern Confederacy chose to do with the Union that saw the Union established after doing so with the Crown. )


PUBLIC NOTICE :   Everyone who follows our work knows that we are very critical of corrupt law enforcement and authoritarianism. This DOES NOT mean that we are anti-law enforcement to the [point especially that people falsel;y assume that we in any way agree with Marxist lead protests which are subversive and destructive seeking to not merely destroy and overthrow local, state and federal governments, but they seek to impose the most tyrannical type that jhas seen the deaths of millions when they come to power. The illusion and falsity that these protests are anarchist in nature is also false. The word anarchist has seen its very definition an assault of deceit. The root etymology of the word anarchist simply means NO RULERS which BLM and ANTIFA in and of themselves could not possibly be run, supported or be conflated with Anarchy. We have heard this word used in the media constantly. The Merriam Webster definition and all other modern day definitions of the word has been altered from its actual meaning most likely at the behest of government as the word is a threat to the existence of government. With true anarchy, chaos, violence and the violation of the natural right of individuals is not synonymous. True anarchists actually not only support natural rights, but their argument is that government, founded and maintained with all of the best intentions eventually grow to become a threat to the very rights they are often formed to protect.   Anarchy simply means NO RULERS..... not NO RULES to live by.

True Anarchy is not possible without those of a moral and ethical nature being willing to voluntarily protecting themselves as well as the rights of anyone else who would find themselves in danger.

Gary Fullerton Speaks Out on Reported Police Corruption on Many Levels




RTR TRUTH MEDIA

Joe Imbriano and Barry Levinson at FPD headquarters as they attempt for a second time to get the FPD’s own men in black to take a report on Chief Dan Hughes’ obstruction of justice


Posted by Joe Imbriano


Section 148(a)(1) of the California Penal Code makes it a crime to willfully “resist, delay or obstruct” a police officer or emergency medical technician in the performance of on-the-job duties.

But what happens when an officer refuses to acknowledge plain fact and evidence when you are reporting another officer who has broken the law? What happens when he/she refuses to admit the allegation is a crime when it is clearly defined as such by statute?


 Ironically, Section 148 of the penal code aka as “the boot of the police state” is the section that is almost exclusively and illegitimately used AGAINST US. This time, I believe that it directly applies to Dan Hughes and possibly even Andrew Goodrich who was the watch commander. Here is the claim for damages filed by the DA investigator who was abrubtly taken off of the case

felz

In the wee hours of the morning following election night, Dan Hughes directly interfered with an arrest, and willfully delayed and obstructed his four officers in the performance of their on the job duties. He called off the arrest of and breathalyzer administration to a suspect caught in the act of fleeing the scene of an accident as he reeked of alcohol. 

 The suspect was none other than our esteemed City Manager-Joe Felz.

The state legal system is set up to give police officers the ability to carry out their functions with minimal interference, including command staff, and anyone who interferes should face arrest and prosecution if they are perceived to be interfering with the operation of law. In fact, anyone could be charged with the crime of obstructing justice for doing virtually anything that constitutes an attempt to prevent a police officer from performing their duties. I believe Dan Hughes signed his own guilty plea when he put out that memo to the council regarding the election night incident involving our city manager.

A petrified Fullerton homeowner had called in a car crash in front of their home at 1:30 in the morning where a van ran over a tree and got itself stuck. The driver of the van was attempting to free the vehicle by continually reving up its engine, putting it in gear and reverse over and over trying to get away. What kind of police officers does Fullerton have who arrive on scene to where a man smelling of alcohol was attempting to leave the scene of an accident, and they fail to arrest and administer a breathalyzer? Whats worse is they let the alleged drunk driver who happens to be our City Manager Joe Felz call and ask for the police chief at 130 in the morning?



What kind of police chief instructs his four police officers who arrive on scene to where a man smelling of alcohol was attempting to leave the scene of an accident, to NOT to arrest him, not to administer a breathalyzer but rather wait until the police chief sends HIS special guy out possibly hours later to do a PRIVATE field sobriety test with NO BREATHALYZER, AND without the presence of another officer without and then drive him home instead of arresting him and taking him to jail? Hiding or destroying evidence or material that would be useful in proving a crime, or attempting to prevent another individual from providing information regarding a crime would have you or I facing charges of obstruction of justice. Watch Joe Imbriano and Barry Levinson at FPD headquarters as they attempt for a second time to get the FPD’s own men in black to take a report on Chief Dan Hughes’ obstruction of justice and they REFUSE.- part 1 and 2. The criminal justice system is broken folks and until law enforcement agents are held criminally liable for their actions, nothing is going to change, We need to send a strong message to all law enforcement that no one is above the law, especially those who are bestowed with arrest powers who are so handsomely paid to and entrusted with the duties to uphold and enforce it.
