On of the manifestations of Racism is when you make judgments and decisions based on people’s ethnicity. In today’s America, Affirmative Action is an outstanding example of it. It implies that Latinos and Blacks are somehow inferior and need “extra credit” on employment applications to level the playing field with Asians and Whites. It seems that weak-kneed corporations all have “diversity policies”, code word for quotas for LGBT, etc etc etc. From where I sit, this furthers the inferiority complex and resentments between races. It is also a despicable way to rule through division.

As you’ve read on this blog, I have come to the belief that Stan Sniff is a liberal democrat, because his decisions and thought processes are not those of a Conservative. One graphic example is how he plays identity politics. He recruited Miguelito to come in as a 4th candidate in the idiotic belief that Latinos would vote for Miguelito based on his ethnicity. That is racism pure and simple.

As you read on, I am going to make the case that Sniff is also a racist in the way he has made some of his promotions. It is my opinion backed up with evidence that Sniff promotes people and/or protects people who are Gay or of certain ethnic groups.

Stan Sniff just tapped a marginally qualified woman to be the public information officer over other, more qualified applicants. According to several department sources, in 2014, Sniff did similar things with latino(a) employees in order to gain political advantage. Robyn Flores was the choice despite reputedly interviewing poorly. It was put to me that Yvonne “Eggplant” Varela had a lot to do with Robyn Flores’ predecessor being removed as the PIO and Sniff picked the successor from a short list whilst ignoring qualifications. See the below photos that show Flores at a Sniff Fundraiser and another photo of her with Lt. Danny Young and others. (Read on regarding Young)

In April of 2014 Stan Sniff promoted Shelly Kennedy-Smith to Chief Deputy. In April of 2018, Sniff promoted Misha Lewis to Chief Deputy. These are the only two Black Female promotees in his 11+ year reign of terror to the second floor. Both have come in April of an election year. You tell me what that is not an accident?

It gets better – look at his neat facebook ad. Is Misha Graves being used as a political prop by Stan Sniff? Sniff is not even coy about it in the advertisement.

If I was Graves, I’d demand the ad get pulled immediately – this is demeaning and is racist at its’ core being used like this in a political campaign.

People have told this blogger that Graves as a “Nice Person” yet most that know her say the knock on her is that she is not a leader and is terribly indecisive. I hope she does well in her position but starting off as a political prop is sickening.

I was contacted by Non-White employees of the Sheriff’s office expressing their outrage over this caricature (as in using her as a political ad) of Graves by Sniff.

The previous appointee Kennedy-Smith had some interesting issues of her own. They included helping the careers of several employees that lacked work ethic, talent, integrity or a combination of the three. The issue is that promotions that are not based on merit usually carry with them quite a bit of baggage.

One such example is Lt. Danny Young.

Young was a lateral from the CHP. He first came on to the radar of my informants (both non-white themselves) when his kids got in to a strong armed robbery of a cell phone from a white student they were bullying. Young attempted to play the race card against the non-white officer that took the call. The white kid’s folks just wanted the cell phone back from the group of black students that attacked him and took it. Two of the kids were Young’s Son and Daughter.

In another incident, Young was caught on camera simulating a sex act with a female cadet and as a result Kennedy-Smith moved him away from the training command. A short time later, Kennedy-Smith then transferred Young to the Modular Academy. I wrote that correctly. Similar to so many other stories, this is how the second floor protects their favorites, they move them around.

Young, despite having a reputation for performing poorly on exams, was able to get in to the Sherman Block Leadership Institute. This is a school Sergeants are sent to that are in the pipeline for making Lieutenant. Young, who should have never made Sergeant, was striking for Lieutenant and was openly asking participants in the school for the test question and for their class papers. It never occurred to Young that was a problem.

Perhaps this sense of entitlement was furthered by Kennedy-Smith. Young took the Lt’s exam some months later and was witnessed by several people bragging about how well Kennedy-Smith had prepped him for the test. I guess Kevin Vest giving then Sergeant Aaron Kent the Lt’s test questions was not an isolated incident and is a time-honored tradition from the second floor.

Given that I’ve seen disturbing patterns related to gay employees, it is not out of the realm that I have correctly diagnosed another pattern (this time with ethic employees) in the tenure of Stan Sniff.

This sort of behavior and corruption under the tenure of Stan Sniff as well as the cover-ups appear to be the normal course of operations.

Riverside Confidential will march on as there is no topic off limits for this blogger thanks to the behavior of Sniff and his minions…

AB 3026 was a common sense bill that would have standardized the CCW Process statewide. It was quite simple, it stated that once you pass the background check, do your weapons training and qualify with your weapon that you’d be approved for a CCW Permit.

Melendez cited in the hearing that Sacramento County (1.1 Million People) approved 9,600 CCW Permits last year. She also cited that San Francisco County (About 750,000 people) approved just 4.

The goal was to take the arbitrary nature out of CCW permits. Riverside County, with a Population over Double that of Sacramento County issued just 2,400.

You’d think he would support such a common sense bill brought by a local legislator. I’d heard through the grapevine that he does not like Jeff Stone very much after Stone made public comments about the budget. It appeared that Melissa Melendez would have been received better and was abandoned by her own Sheriff… as were the Gun Owners of Riverside County and the NRA.

As expected, there was little or no follow up from the local media about the unbelievable serial child molester Kevin Duffy. The original source, KMIR did have an Amy Murray on for an interview.

KMIR is dead-bang right on in their pursuit of this bombshell. We learned here some deeply disturbing details about the extent of Duffy’s sickness and the sickness of Stan Sniff’s cover up of the entire saga.

Amy Murray (who now has a new married last name) is a character that is apparently well-known in local circles and not in a good way. Quoting a confidential informant:

Amy Murray who’s on the video concerned her son might have been assaulted by Duffy…..has 2 sons and a daughter who work in the porn industry.  She’s a proud mother of these young adults.  She allowed Eddie George/Hemet News, a flunky, white trash self proclaimed news reporter to air one of her daughter’s video’s giving a man a blow job.  Proud mother was sitting in the background smiling.  I saw the video in living color.   It made quite a stir in Hemet.  George is the idiot that Dave Brown allowed to chase fire, police and ambulances for news until they became a liability.

Dave Brown? What did he know and when did he know it?

It is a well-known fact that children who are molested are as much as 7 times more likely to become gay and most ultimately end up being promiscuous as adults. Did Kevin Duffy molest Murray’s Son(s) and did that play a role in them becoming porn stars? Most male porn stars get their start in gay porn before they do hetero porn.

Just like with Walter Cole, the employee of Mohammad Ali Mazarei (Sniff’s 2nd largest donor) who was rigging smog checks, his guilt or innocence has no bearing on Mohammad’s part in the caper. Similarly, It is possible to rape or molest a porn star.

However, there should be cause for concern with Murray. What kind of mother would participate in filming her daughter performing oral sex on camera. Someone who has a pathological need for attention? Is she proud of her kids being porn stars? Does she even care about her kids at all (unless they bring her attention)?

This is where Dave Brown comes in (again):

Amy Murray was also living with a Christopher Walker, a Hemet real estate broker who was a mover and shaker in fighting the crime and blight in Hemet.  Murray worked with him.

Chris was alleged to have committed suicide in his home with Amy in the next room.  She claimed he was taking drugs and had been drinking heavily all evening and they had been fighting.  She said he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s but his sister didn’t know this.  It all happened around 3 a.m. By 7 a.m. Murray had a trailer at his home stealing ALL of his personal effects and valuables from the home.  Even took his car, claiming they were engaged and she was entitled to these things. 

That same morning, before the ‘suicide’ hit the streets, Murray was writing on FB details about the incident and whining ‘oh Chris, how could you do this to us” at the hospital with him when they called his death, …blah blah blah.  It was very clear to us that she was establishing an alibi. And this went on for weeks.  [Hemet] PD would not look into our scenario inasmuch as the sister asked me to send the info I had to the detective.  I was ignored by Hemet Police Department

Dave Brown was in senior leadership of Hemet PD at the time and had knowledge of this case. Is this sort of indifference what we can expect from Dave Brown as Sheriff?

(we) could not get ANY information from Hemet PD and the detective would not cooperate with (us) to continue the investigation.  The Coroner told (us) that Chris did not have drugs in his system and the alcohol level was far below legal limits.  So, Murray lied.   HPD didn’t care.

This is the same story that I told on FB about how Dave Brown and his officers screwed up this suspicious deathNo Gun Shot Residue on her or him, and they didn’t search the house for the shell casing for 5 months.  

Murray would not leave the home, did not make the mortgage payments, it went into foreclosure. The family asked her for his personal items to give to his son.. she refused.  Chris had the home tastefully decorated with a lot of expensive antique furnishings.  Murray stripped the house of any copper i.e, copper doorknobs, hinges, gate fixtures, antique stove, lighting… you name it.

A retired RS deputy and I put the story together and we are convinced that Murray had everything to do with Chris’s death if not the one who shot him in the head.

Murray’s behavior is far from that of a grieving fiancee or a mother that gives a damn about her kids. Dave Brown also has some explaining of his own to do, where was the leadership and where was the oversight?

Then there was the case of deputy Shamhart as detailed in a long, graphic post that also featured Captain Paula Birch. Others came forward with their Birch stories and it appears that Stan Sniff enabled Birch almost from the beginning of his tenure. However, my confidential informant regarding Shamhart seemed to have a long list of her own issues.

While the informant made it 13 years without discipline, it appears that this is yet another example of the lack of leadership and morale in Stan Sniff’s department. Employees such as my informant that yell at others and get in people’s faces, and fraternize on the clock would not be tolerated in any well-run company (or sheriff’s department). The fact that Shamhart got only 8 hours for basically doing the same (minus the fraternization) while this employee got quasi-terminated is the second issue of the unbalanced nature of Stan Sniff’s PSB and Admin department’s reign of terror. Both should have received equal punishment (which in my opinion should have been termination)…

Then the fact that so many employees (like Tony Pelato) get their jobs back in arbitration after clear-cut violations of the rules is another area for reform. However, the only thing Sniff knows how to do effectively is whine about his budget as his lack of understanding of day-to-day operations (or his disdain for it) is quite clear.

Then there is former Assistant Sheriff Raymond Gregory, who got a brief mention in the previous (Birch/Shamhart) post. Gregory was investigated for behavior like Birch for molestation / misconduct with underaged same sex youngsters (ironically, like Birch in Blythe) and investigations went nowhere. Gregory, as a senior manager in the RSO had more than one police call in Cathedral City out to his house for domestic disturbances with his husband. As related to me, he always pulled rank on the Cathedral City Officers and was always the aggressor. Any resulting police reports went nowhere. While the alleged sexual misconduct stuff pre-dates Sniff’s reign of terror, his domestic disturbance calls are much more recent (and frequent).

Now, Raymond Gregory is running for Cathedral City Council. His opponents should get police logs and have a field day.

If I did not have such a strong since of law and order, I’d probably be out rioting with people destroying property in the name of social justice based on what I am learning. Worse, Paula Birch and Raymond Gregory along with Kevin Duffy appear to have escaped justice while Stan Sniff (and crew) covered it all up.

Ever Heard of the COPS Slate Mail Card? It comes out very late in the election cycle and presents itself as if it is a law enforcement slate.

You gotta read the fine print, it is made in Folsom, CA. (For those of you obsessed with where I live, Folsom and Roseville are only about 2 miles apart at the closest parts of their city limits)

See the red circle – it says clearly “0 Members”. For those of you on the second floor that means the “COPS Slate” represents 0 Cops. Since Stan Sniff represents no cops, it seems to be a match made in hell.

Like so many other of Stan Sniff’s campaign “Investments” this slate mail card has been RIPPED in the press as well:

COPS Voter Guide now is a pay-to-play mailer run by Kelley Moran of Folsom, who did not return my call, just as a representative of the stated nonpartisan public advocacy organization failed to respond to then-Bee reporter Adam Ashton’s inquiry for a news story in 2008. The guide rakes in millions of dollars statewide by selling advertisements under the guise of “endorsements,” and is just one of many slate mailers operating legally in the state and targeting specific groups of voters.

The Merced County District Attorney also ripped the COPS Slate for it’s advocacy for Prop 57.

Such brochures are called “slate mailers” since they include a slate of political recommendations. They are for sale and some, like the COPS Voter Guide, are purposely deceptive. Proposition 57 is not supported by law enforcement. The California Police Chiefs Association, the California District Attorneys Association, the Association of Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs, the San Francisco Police Officers Association and the Merced County Law Enforcement Association are some of the more than 55 law-enforcement organizations adamantly opposed to Prop 57. Not one California Sheriff is in support.

But here is Stan Sniff lining up with Yes on 47 and Yes on 57.

This is just another piece of evidence in the sad, shrinking world of Stan Sniff who has to buy endorsements like the RINO Revolution or the Sex Offender Slates.

Most REAL cop groups despise this slate because it claims to be an official law enforcement endorsement, and it is not.
COPS Voter Guide was paid by the Prop. 47 campaign to trick voters into supporting this early release from prison measure for career felony criminals
COPS Voter Guide was paid by the Prop. 57 campaign to trick voters into supporting this reduction in sentences and more early prison releases for violent felons.
COPS Voter Guide was paid for by Sniff to trick voters into thinking that Sniff is endorsed by a police and sheriffs organization.
Don’t take my word for it – here are some more photos for your consumption:
Once Again Stan Sniff finds himself on the side of the ACLU! 
How about No on Sniff?

A confidential source known to me, but requesting anonymity apparently got upset enough to come forward with specific info about Sgt Frank Schiavone and Andrew Shouse. I then followed up with others as several had information related to the subjects in this post…

You see, Andrew Shouse was notorious for drinking on duty. He was a regular parton of a local bar near the Thermal Station and could be seen as early as 2-3pm (1400-1500 for you cops and marines out there) lit up like a Christmas Tree.

Sgt. Schiavone is reputed to have been one of Captain Shouse’s drinking buddies.

Sgt. Frank Schiavone was involved in a hit and run accident in the City of Indio. He and others fled the scene.

Shouse got the whole thing covered up to make sure his drinking buddy did not get popped for a DUI or fleeing the scene

Andrew Shouse had a lot of tryists with a lot of people. I’ve been told at least two stories of Shouse taking other men’s girlfriends by force and having sex with them. I’ve also been told by several people that Andrew Shouse had sex with almost all of the female employees under his watch.

Some of you may recall my posts about Deputy Birchard. She got screwed over by Lt. Bostrom who had her arrested for being allegedly under the influence at the training command. Bostrom wanted to take her down because she had Shouse’s kid, or something along those lines. I can’t keep track of all of their scores, it is like a playboy novel.

After the stench around Andrew Shouse got so bad, he was sent to the Robert Pressley Detention Center where he promptly started screwing his way through the female staff there and then he got fired. Shouse is now attempting to get his job back.

Frank Schiavone? Well, he has some baggage of his own… first off is a well-known affair with Now Captain Misty Reynolds (who is ironically rumored to be taking over the Thermal Station once Roy Disgrace retires). Maybe she can get the equipment fixed at that disaster of a station (in between affairs). Schiavone and Reynolds were engaged in a different form of surveillance while a suspect was doing what suspects do. Upon leaving the location he was burglarizing, he happened upon the van that apparently was undulating and helped himself to now Captain Reynolds’ purse.

Allegedly Schiavone was also stalking a now ex-wife pre and post divorce. He still has his job. Where was that investigation? Probably in the same place as the investigations of Sgt Dekker, Lt Rose, Lt Kent, etc etc etc.

Some people may not understand why we take the time to write about this stuff here at RightonDaily. Let me spell it out for you. This is the kind of behavior that is allowed to go on in Stan Sniff’s Riverside Sheriff’s Department. Andrew Shouse should have been fired years ago, yet the rank and file know they are as likely to get screwed by County Admin as the perpetrator is, therefore Shouse can brandish a weapon and take someone’s girlfriend by force while wasted (as one example of what I was told by informants). The rank and file also know that Friends of Stan are off-limits. It appears that Shouse was one up until some point before he was terminated.

Honest Cops have been putting up with this kind of behavior from co-workers for years under Stan Sniff. It needs to stop. There needs to be a house-cleaning where dirty cops are terminated and prosecuted. Right now, the regime of terror reigns supreme where honest people are intimidated in to silence and no one likes their job.

Stan Sniff is the boss, and he owns the corruption of the department. When I speak to Confidential Informants, one after the other, they tell me they had such high hopes for Stan Sniff only to have him end up being the same or worse than his predecessor Bob Doyle. (Note – Doyle has endorsed Hemet Dave)

Stay Tuned, we are naming more names soon.
