Lassen County Scoop Owes No One!
We Are Not Affiliated Or Funded By Lassen County Government Or The Alfalfa Mafia.
The Lassen County Scoop supports local, state, and federal law enforcement and the Archangels of Justice. Though, the Scoop does not and will not support corrupt cops, a corrupt justice system, corrupt government officials, or bias news media. The Scoop owes no one and owns no stock in a Non Profit irrigation district.
The link above is a guide for all law enforcement who would like to
know the proper protocol for investigating a crime scene, who are not receiving
proper training from their superiors. Officers have the responsibility to assess
and protect crime scenes, preserving physical evidence, and collecting and
submitting the evidence for scientific examination. Physical evidence play a
critical role in an investigation, the evidence can be used to convict the
guilty or exonerate the innocent.
All law enforcement should be trained in how to approach a crime
scene and to secure it, as though, it would be their only opportunity to
preserve and recover physical clues in order to help solve a potential crime. Way too crimes go unsolved, because the lack of properly trained or inept law enforcement.
All politicians are nothing more than a coattail jumper. They ride on the voter's coattail proclaiming to make a change, but once they are in office they are no different than their predecessor. They jump from their supporter's coattail onto the coattails of other corrupt officials. Therefore nothing ever changes....just another endless revolving cycle of corruption.
Another Productive Day at Lassen County's BOS Meeting
Tom Hammond was fined $2,500 by the Fair Political Practice Commission (FPPC) for a conflict of interest, voting to sell the Herlong property to Pezzullo and Smith. Hammond, you need to send former Lassen County Counsel Rhetta Vander Ploeg that fine for $2,500, ask her to pay for it, since she just sat there and let you vote, when it was clearly a conflict of interest. Isn't that a County Counsel's job, to advise you of the conflict of interest?
Now for Bob Burns...just fire him, please just fire him. Number one reason, because of his part in the Angel Siler's case. Also, he did the exact same thing that Vander Ploeg did... sat there and watched you vote on the Herlong property without uttering one word to stop you. Next get rid of CAO/Rancher Egan, because he is passing off a bogus Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) to finance Chapman's "Taj Mahal".
Hang in there, because on the flip side to all of this, there is some good news, the 40 year, career politician Chapman will be out after 2016.
Archangel of Justice's Press Release
In September 2011, Angel Siler was found near death by Susanville PD & Fire Personnel. The medics reacted with professionalism and respect, rushing Angel to the hospital. The police were another matter, the obvious lack of professionalism and courtesy is very evident in the responding officers behavior. He did not call for a detective or crime scene technicians. Nor did he even consider the possibility that Angel could have been forcibly drugged and raped. Her nude body with bruises was clearly evident yet he took no action. The beautiful young woman alone, nude, incapable of speaking and surrounded by 3 men, the buffoon of a police officer did nothing to investigate. Angel was buried after a brave unsuccessful fight for her life several days later, with the evidence of what happen to her in that dark shack on 2nd Street in Susanville not minutes from the police department. Now 5 years later the Susanville PD knee jerk reaction is to arrest one of the men, in hopes of keeping the Archangels of Justice away. We had the medical reports, statements and photos of Angel's bruises. All of the bruises consistent with being forcibly held down. The case was simple 5 years ago, but no one in law enforcement cared and apparently neither did the DA. Now though they clamor to arrest, make a media splash citing how complex a case it is. Once again the propaganda spews forth. The police in this country today are very well aware of proper protocol, and the possibility of rape during drug use. There is no excuse for their past shoddy police work. There is less of an excuse for the chief to try to cover it up. If he had any guts or integrity he'd push for charges against that officer for neglect and dereliction of duty.

Archangels at the Rally in Chicago, ILL.
Their Next Stop, Susanville, CA, May 11th.
May 9th, Sal and Ira attended a rally "Holding Hands together; Justice for Pravin Varguhese and All", in Chicago, Illinois. Sal speaks out about the Angel Siler's case and stating there was no investigation done by the Susanville Police Department. Sal's partner Ira goes on to explains to the crowd what they actually do to get these cases investigated. They first find an injustice and then they create an affidavit if it's warranted seeking a federal investigation. He goes on to say most of the time they get an investigation. Then it goes further, to the next step...where hopefully charges will be filed against the police department and other departments.

Shareholder or Stakeholder
CAO/Rancher Egan, who is over the Lassen County's Government Departments does not know the difference between a Shareholder and Stakeholder? Members cannot own stock in a Non-Profit Organization's, they are stakeholder not shareholders. Click here >> KanWeHelp to view CAO/Rancher Egan's 700 form. He owns 100,001 to 1,000,000 stock in Lassen Irrigation Company (LIC).
A local newspaper, first reported that Lassen Irrigation Company (LIC) was a non-profit, then made a correction that LIC was an organization for profit and later made another correction that LIC was a non-profit organization. Why so many corrections? Is the local newspaper confused? Do they know not do investigating reporting?
Maybe this helps explain why Lassen County does not have a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) for, because CAO/Rancher does not know the difference between a CIP and a maintenance list?
Hopefully, County Counsel Burns can explain to Egan the difference between shareholder and stakeholder? Well, probably not, because County Counsel is still struggling to understand the Brown Act and the Civil Rights Act?
Recommendation for Lassen County Board of Supervisors:
- Pay for CAO/Rancher Egan to attend a workshop on government business, with a 50% cut in pay, until he can accurately preform his job as CAO. Make available to the public a copy of his college transcript.
- Pay for County Counsel Burns to attend a workshop on how to conduct a public meeting, with a 50% cut in pay, until he can accurately perform his job as County Counsel. Make available to the public a copy of his college transcript.
Rolling Out the Red Carpet for Archangels of Justice
The Archangels of Justice will be a welcome sight for folks in Lassen County, except for the corrupt officials. It's long over due that Angel Siler's murder case get the attention it deserves. It's too bad that it takes a couple investigators thousands of miles a way to take interest in her case while local officials in our county have turned up their noses and looked the other way. They failed to do their job for what they were sworn into office to do.
Angel was a young, beautiful, 23 year old lady, who's life was tragically ended by three suspects and to this day have never been held accountable for their actions. Her murder swept under the rug like so many other victim's cases in Lassen County. Not only was Angel's civil rights violated as women, but also as a disabled person. She was treated like a second-class citizen, not worthy of justice by officials in Lassen County. Thanks to the Archangels of Justice, Sal and Ira, Angel's murder case will be investigated and getting National attention, soon.
The Scoop will not cover up for any government officials, nor is the Scoop affiliated or funded by Lassen County Government or the Alfalfa Mafia.
Former DA Bob Burns Has Two Tales
Former DA Bob Burns discusses the Angel Siler's case with Iona McCain during a public board meeting on June 17, 2014. Burns stated, "There is a significant issue in that case (Angel Siler) in terms of provability, that's my recollection." Oddly enough, Burns changes his story in an interview in a local newspaper's article "Mother seeks funding for private investigation into her daughter's death", he states, "I can tell you that case was never presented to me in my time as district attorney, as best as I can recall." Why does Burns have two tales?
Please watch the video of Burns discussing Angel Silver's case.
Will Supervisor/Rancher/Pyle, Supervisor/Rancher Hemphill and CAO/Rancher Egan recuse themselves from the board meeting during the appointment of another the RCD board? Will they be voting by secret ballots in a public meeting again?
With all the water woes going on in California, Governor Brown has issued a Statewide Executive Order;
Agricultural water users-who bare much of the brunt of the drought to date, with hundreds of thousands of fallowed acres, significantly reduced water allocations and thousands of farm workers laid off-will be required to report more water use information to state regulators, increasing the state's ability to enforce against illegal diversions, and waste and unreasonable use of water under today's order. Additionally, the Governors action strengthen standards for Agricultural water districts to develop similar plans. These plans will help ensure that agricultural communities are prepared in case the drought extends into 2016.
Additional actions required by the order include:
- Taking action against water agencies in depleted groundwater basins that have not shared data on their groundwater supplies with the state.
- Updating standards for toilets and faucets and outdoor landscaping in residential communities and taking action against communities that ignore these standards.
- Making permanent monthly reporting of water usage, conservation and enforcement actions by local water suppliers.
I'm writing this letter to inform you that your California Statewide Executive Order water use restrictions stop here at Lassen County borders. Meanwhile the rest of Californians are struggling to save water, Lassen County Board of Supervisor Bob Pyle stated "It's his (the farmer/rancher's) water to waste as he wants to". Lassen County CAO/Rancher/Egan and County Counsel Burns both gave supporting comments to back Pyle up on his comments.
Also, Lassen County Board members approved of exportation of California's groundwater into Nevada while the rest of California is turning into a dust bowl.
Please view the enclosed video.
The male chauvinists sets the tone in the Lassen County board room that women are not equal to men. Women are rudely mistreated when addressing the board with a grievance, while men are allowed to speak as long as they wish. Women who opposes the board are ridiculed for taking up the board's time and thrashed with condescending remarks by board members and county counsel. The obvious has been well documented via video and audio.
Important things to note:
- Our First Amendment -- the right to petition government for redress of grievances means that the people has the right to make a complaint to or seek the assistance of, one's government, without fear of punishment or reprisals.
- Under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, in the United States the Federal anti discrimination law, women are a protected class, who cannot be targeted for discrimination.
Recommendation to the board -- hire a county counsel, who is up on the Federal Civil Rights Law and the Brown Act, who can well advise the board members not discriminate against women or any other protected class and give direction on how to conduct a public meeting.
Tired of Government Fraud, Waste and Abuse?
Government fraud is not going away if we stick our heads in the sand and do nothing. It's your duty to report Government Fraud. Lassen County Board of Supervisors are NOT being transparent with the public and has refused to come clean about the $350,000 loan to Medici Logging Inc. Medici received the loan in April 2014 and later filed for Bankruptcy in December, 2014. Lassen County Board of Supervisors are NOT good stewards of the taxpayer's dollar. If they had to work for the money they waste, then maybe things would be different. It's easy come, easy go with them...there goes your kids and grandchildren's future. Thank you Board of Supervisors, Mr. CAO/Rancher Egan, for ensuring a bleak future for the next generation!

Local Newspaper Corrections?
I found it difficult to follow the story about the "State Aid Sought for Watermaster Investigation" in a local newspaper in Susanville, CA. Who is Larry "cadbit" and Shawn "girse"? What's RD? What was Ms. White's complaint about? Are the Egans using water out of the district? Lassen Irrigation is a non-profit with shares? This article is so confusing! Did Supervisor Chapman write this article for the local paper? Although, I would probably understand it better if it was written in Chinese.
I believe there's a few corrections for this newspaper to make, such as the misspelling of names and stating the Lassen Irrigation Company is a non-profit. According to California State Franchise, the company is not currently exempt from under Revenue and Taxation Code Section 23701.

Both Investigators are experienced and professional in their work, they seek justice for crime victims and their families.
We need answers like; Why did "former" District Attorney Bob Burns and Susanville Police Department fail to seek justice for Angel Siler and her family. We are prepared to expose what has been swept under the rug for over three years. We need your help by making a donation of $5, $10. $20, $100 or whatever you can afford for Justice for Angel Siler.
The Board meeting covered a wide range of topics from the water issues, to the Jefferson State, to Pot and to the tax assessors needing extra help. The meeting opened up a lot more questions to be answered. Such as, will the growers' pot be taxed? Will the pot growers need a business licence and malpractice insurance to treat patients? Will there be a war between the pot growers and the Alfalfa Mafia over the water? Will the Jefferson State uphold the Federal laws on cultivating pot or will they do as the Californians do?
One finally question, did you notice that two water users (Pyle and Hemphill) on the board and CAO/Rancher Egan sat in on the discussion about the water issues? Supervisor Plye blocked the board from even making a motion, in fact he controlled the water issue discussion, while in the past he and Egan had recuse themselves. Did County Counsel sleep through this or was he too focused on pot and forgot to advise them that there's a conflict of interest?
"Hats-Off" To Modoc County District Attorney Funk
According to The Modoc Couty Record News, District Attorney Jordan Funk filed a writ of mandate in Modoc Superior Court March 9 against Sheriff Mike Poindexter for refusal to provide information in a case involving excessive force by an officer. In November Jason Colt was arrested by Sgt. Dan Nessling, in which Funk is investigating for possible criminal charges. According to the writ, the DA's office has a video evidence that "provided probable casue to believe that Sgt. Daniel Nessling assualted Jason Colt (an unarmed arrestee who was handcuffed behind his back)."
District Attorney Funk stated. "Penal code section 832.7 is crystal clear, The District Attorney has an absolute statutory right to the sheriff's internal investigation of citizen complaints, of evidence of peace officer criminal wrongdoing contained in the Sheriff's internal files and of complaints of wrongdoing against a peace officer and any and all evidence generated by the Sheriff in his internal investigation or through the complaint process, (excluding compelled, immunized statements from a peace officer--which we specifically exempted from our request). The District Attorney has an absolute right to these records and the sheriff has an equally absolute duty to provide them on request. We made our 832.7 request and Mike Poindexter denied it. He is in defiance of the law. We had no choice but to seek a court order compelling him to turn over the requested information."
A hearing is set for April 2, 2015, 10 am before Modoc Superior Court Judge Francis Barclay.
Lassen County had similar cases in the past as the one in Modoc County that involved police officers using excessive force, but were handled in a different fashion for 25 years. A case in 2012, involved Officer Milito using excessive force on Drury, was settled for $55,000 (taxpayer's money) in a secretively manner. Another case of excessive abuse that ended up Bauer suing Deputy Sheriff Wallace was settled by Lassen County paying $7,500 (taxpayer's money) which the lawsuit is off the records, hidden from the public. In both cases former District Attorney Burns did not investigate or file criminal charges on the alleged officers accused of using excessive force.
Is there no Justice System of Integrity in Lassen County?
101 JUSTICE SYSTEM OF INTEGRITY
No one is above the law, especially those who are sworn to uphold it. Those who are charged with enforcing the laws of the State of California must themselves scrupulously obey the law. They must lead by example, and that example must be based on principles of honesty, integrity, credibility and accountability.
When judges, attorneys, police officers, and others working in the justice system break the law, they must be held accountable for their actions. The District Attorney created the Justice System Integrity Division (JSID), a team of highly experienced prosecutors and investigators, to ensure just that. JSID – with enhanced cooperation from local and federal agencies – provides the resources to detect, investigate, and prosecute criminal misconduct among those sworn to uphold the law.
By doing so, JSID deters criminal wrongdoing and helps raise confidence in law enforcement, the courts, and the justice system in general.

Here's Some Facts About McElrath's Case, You May Not Know
Joanna McElrath pleaded guilty and is serving a sentence 25-years-to-life for the murder of her husband Robert McElrath, who was a Susanville police officer. Her partner in the murder, Robin Glen James pleaded guilty and is also looking at 25-years-to-life sentencing.
Why such low sentencing for murdering a cop?
According to court transcripts filed in Lassen County Superior Court text messages between Joanna McElrath and Robin James show a nearly hour by hour documentation of their alleged efforts to kill Susanville Police Officer McElrath on January 1, 2011. With all the hard work and evidence collected by the police the case appeared to be a slam dunk.
According to Burns' statement, "Obviously, it's not a perfect situation, but it's a good resolution to a complicated case." Why is this such a complicated case, when it appeared to be a slam dunk? Did "former" District Attorney Burns and his Senior DA Mock botched the case giving the defense attorneys a strategy to a lower sentence for defendants? Is it a coincident in 2014 that Burns resigns as D.A and his senior DA retires?
In 2014, Lassen County Board of Supervisors; Pyle, Hammond, Wosick, Albaugh and Chapman hires Burns as the County Counsel. What a friend indeed they are or should it be said, he was a friend in need?
The venue for the murder trial was moved out of Lassen County, but did you know that Burn's Senior DA Mock, who worked for him over 10 years was removed from the murder case after attorney Barnes filed the motion to recuse Sandra Ford Mock?
