Your intrepid blogger made a sudden trip to Riverside County. I did not tell very many people I was going to Riverside County as I wanted the element of surprise.
My weekend started in bizarre fashion with three Hell’s Angels sitting near me on the plane I caught to Ontario and the boss-man looking at me and saying “You, you’re trouble”. That will be a great story to tell for years to come…
I had a list of places I wanted to visit and ended up hitting double the number of locations that I had planned to hit.
#1 I got to meet Donald Vincent Brooks. It is clear to me that Mr. Brooks is being railroaded and the reason he has not been utterly destroyed is because he fought back. It is my belief that Cornett, Pelato, Lenton and others will be held accountable for misconduct if Sniff is ousted as Sheriff. Otherwise Brooks is in for a years-long legal fight that I believe he wins.
#2 I went to the home of Carmen Mariscal. Her home was a gaudy display of a gigantic Stan Sniff banner and Stan Sniff signs. It is alleged that Mariscal’s business has issues – but what is known is that her business partner and brother is a Convicted Felon. That did not stop the Sheriff from accepting multiple checks from the business and a recent $5k Check from Carmen herself.
#3 I learned that Lt. Magnan, (who is despised by his men) is allegedly having an affair with the office manager of the Lake Elsinore Station. So not only is Magnan condescending and sadistic to his subordinates, he is a scumbag who is cheating on his wife. (At least that is what I think of him and apparently I am not alone) I learned this when I received an anonymous request to go check out the broken gate at Lake Elsinore. The gate at the Lake Elsinore Station is “kind of” fixed. I did not end up going to Lake Elsinore, but also had a chance interaction with the Mayor of Lake Elsinore at an event Sat PM. Suffice to say their City Council are not fans of Stan Sniff…
#4 I went to Sheriff’s Admin. I wanted to see the fabled “Second Floor”. The Sheriff’s Admin Building is a joke. The County Admin Building is a beautiful (overpriced) new edifice. The County Admin building which is across the street is where they screw over injured workers by litigating and delaying worker’s comp claims. The “Second Floor” is where Sheriff’s Admin is and where Stanley and all his “men” go to inflict tyranny on the rank and file.
I also ended up shooting a second video from the alley behind the old, drab relic from the 1950’s. I also got to see the main jail, which was the scene of an embarrassing escape that we wrote about. They ended up digging a tunnel between the buildings after the escape. BREAKING NEWS – the Door in the tunnel is broken and has to be locked and unlocked with a key.
#5 I visited Moreno Valley Station, which is run by one of the biggest cowards in the entire department (not named Stan Sniff), Dave “Kurly” Kurylowicz. It was interesting to see how nice the building was, especially knowing what a disaster the management of it is. Kurly is known for having several fake facebook accounts that he uses to attack people with. He has also used fake accounts I believe to be his to attack my business and my wife.
#6 I visited Mohammad Ali Mazarei’s AM/PM Travel Zone. I indicated I was getting a Slurpee there, I was later informed when I saw Ali that night that AM/PM sells ICEE’s. I could not tell the difference. Mohammad had a ton of campaign stuff in his place, I assumed he was out campaigning, which is why I missed him. It turns out that Ali owns the Truck Stop and the Car Wash on the same premises.
Some of the only places I saw Sniff Signs where where Ali Placed them, at Chandi’s AM/PM stations and around the Moreno Valley Station – ostensibly placed by Kurly (hopefully off the clock, ahem).
One of the neatest things in a long time happened when I was in the parking lot of Mohammad’s Travelzone center – a deputy from a nearby Station rolled up next to my rental car and introduced himself to me. He thanked me for what I was doing to deal with the Corrupt Sheriff!
#7 I visited El Felonasco restaurant in Perris. It is in old town Perris. The area was a cool little area, but the owners of the restaurant have issues. As written about previously, the father got a felony conviction and had to transfer the ownership of the business in to the daughter’s name (at least that is the conclusion I drew based on the evidence I had) The father still owns the building. The interesting development is that the Sniff 4×8 Signs are no longer up at the establishment.
#8 I visited Hemet Station. I had to see where Leonard “Lenny” Purvis was keeping Chad Bianco in the cooler. Hemet’s proximity to Banning made it make sense for why Purvis ended up in Hemet. Hemet is a complete war zone. I saw gang bangers riding their bikes along main street. (and a lot of blight and spray paint)
#9 Was the Palm Desert Disaster. I said hello to Geronimo Contreras, Richard Ramirez, Sgt Selfie (aka Robert Garcia) and Captain Huskey. The Palm Desert Station looks really nice from the outside, but it is a complete and utter disaster inside. Dilapidated equipment, mismanagement and dysfunction are the order of the day.
#10 Epic Sign Trolling – out in “The Desert” as they call the Palm Springs Area (which includes 5 cities spread out over some 40 miles), Chad Bianco’s campaign signs were ubiquitous, especially in areas near the Sheriff Substations. Two such photos are embedded, including the double 2×4 sign across from Thermal Station.
#11 Thermal Station. This is the home of some of the worst equipment in the entire department. Most of the rusted out cars were parked at this station. Similar to Palm Desert, they are beset by malfunctioning BWC Chargers, antiquated computers, shortages and the like.
#12 Criminal Defense Attorney John Dolan. Stan Sniff has taken two checks from Dolan who is defending the monster that murdered two Palm Springs Police Officers. One of the slain deputies is the wife of a current Sheriff’s Deputy. I also saw the memorial on Highway 111 naming that road after the slain officers. Of all the things that Stan Sniff has done, taking TWO campaign checks from John Dolan is the most outrageous (with perhaps the Kevin Duffy serial child molester Cover-Up being worse).
LUCKY #13 – the Riverside County Dump. Aka: Stan Sniff’s home. I decided to check out the neighborhood of Stanley. The neighborhood looks a lot like many neighborhoods in Roseville, with the exception that Stanley’s neighborhood is one of $1.3MM homes (or more). I guess having a 1980’s construction home with a 3 car garage, over-sized lot and about 2500 sqf. costs $1.3MM in the City of Riverside. True to form, Sniff had a county vehicle parked in front of his home and not in a garage (like everyone else is told to do).
My video from Stanley’s house was a crowd favorite, I suppose. See the text message exchange embedded in this post.
Stan Sniff is a bully who also happens to be an incompetent leader. The evidence of his ham-fisted tyrannical management style is legion.
I was told this weekend that NO LESS THAN 7 Lieutenants are being Personnel Investigated (aka PERS-ed) by Stan Sniff’s goon squad (internal affairs). One of those Lt’s by the name of Lujan was mentioned specifically. Amazingly, I have never spoken to or met anyone named Lujan.
I am also aware of at least 5 more rank-and-file level employees being PERS’ed – beyond the young man that was suspended for two weeks (without pay) for snapping a picture of himself in uniform with a Chad Bianco sign in his hands.
I went to Riverside County for one purpose. If you are afraid of Stan Sniff, please come forward ([email protected]) you are not alone. If a blogger from Roseville, CA can drive through the belly of the beast and stand up to the corrupt Sheriff, so can you.
Stan Sniff is wounded, but he is not done yet. Now is your best chance to restore justice to Riverside County. I am here to give you a voice and yes you can remain anonymous.
