Snohomish County’s newly elected Sheriff Adam Fortney covering up the murder of Nickolas Peters

In October 2018, Snohomish County Sheriff  Officer Art Wallin murdered an unarmed man, Nickolas Peters.  Peters was only 24 years of age.  Ever since murdering Peters, Deputy Wallin had been on paid administrative leave soaking up thousands from the taxpayers of Snohomish County.

Sheriff Ty Trenary ordered an independent investigation of the murder of Peters. The Peters family sued Snohomish County for wrongful death, violating the civil rights of their son.

The final investigative report found that Deputy Art Wallin’s murder of Peters was not warranted, and found Deputy Art Wallin was guilty of using excessive force. KIRO 7 reports

According a University of Michigan Law Professor, ” Excessive force by a law enforcement officer(s) is a violation of a person’s constitutional rights.  Excessive force is defined by the use of force greater than that which a reasonable and prudent law enforcement officer would use under the circumstances is generally considered to be excessive.”

After the Peters’s family filed a civil rights suit against Snohomish County, allegations surfaced that a resident had taken a video of Deputy Wallin’s murder of Peters.  Contrary to police reports, Snohomish County Detective Shawn Stitch, and newly elected Sheriff Adam Fortney, were on the scene prior to Deputy Wallin’s firing at least two fatal shots, murdering Peters.

The man who videotaped the murder of Peters was questioned by Adam Fortney and Detective Shawn Stich, handed a copy of the video below to both officers, and asked by Stich and Fortney to never tell anyone about the video.

Initial police reports signed and submitted into public record by Deputy Wallin, stated falsely, that Nick Peters was trying to evade the police when he shot and killed Peters, and had refused to bring his truck to a stop.

The video contradicts Deputy Wallin’s statements.

The video below shows that Peters was not a threat to any officer, did in fact have his hands up in the air, the truck was idle, Deputy Stich jumped on the hood of the truck, and then Deputy Wallin fired at least four gunshots at point blank rage, murdering Peters.

Peters girlfriend was in passenger’s seat can be seen being physically yanked by her hair and thrown to the ground like a bag of potatoes, by our newly elected Snohomish County, Adam Fortney.

Imagine sitting inside a truck, a police officer jumps on the hood of your truck, murders your unarmed hands in the air boyfriend, and then orders you out of the vehicle.

A few thoughts might come to mind like will Deputies murder me too?

 

The above video was obtained by the public records act, and posted by reporter Lori Shavlik at “Injustice In Snohomish County”


Sheriff Ty Trenary terminated Deputy Wallin after the final report supported that Deputy Wallin’s shooting of Nickolas Peters was not justified and violated well settled police training protocols.

But this wasn’t the first go around for Deputy Wallin.  Wallin’s disciplinary file from Snohomish County documented that he also used excessive force in Lake Stevens in 2016 and was almost terminated, but the Union, unfortunately for the Peters family, saved his job.


 

Fortney

Adam Fortney sworn in 2019 as Snohomish County Sheriff Officer, apparently forgot that lying and violating the civil rights of citizens hardly meets the definition of upholding the laws of Washington and complying with basic min. Constitutional provisions in place since the birth of our nation


Soon after the above video was released, Snohomish County Council voted to settle the wrongful death suit filed by the Peters’s family for $1,000,00.00, and the newly elected Sheriff Adam Fortney “rehired”  Art Wallin reinstating him with back pay ( at the county taxpayers’ expense) as a deputy sheriff K-9 handler with the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

After viewing the above video obtained under RCW 42.56, several facts are as clear as the skies over Normandy Beaches.  Peters had his hands above his head in plain view of  officers Wallin and Stich, his car was not moving as previously claimed by Wallin, and Deputy Stich jumped on the hood of Peters’s truck just before Wallin fired least two shots at point blank range murdering Peters.

Wallin police incident reports signed and declared to under oath fasely stated that the Peters’s truck was moving. Not sure about our readers, but not only does the video document that Wallin should be added to the Brady List ( as any other dirty lying cop should be), but it’s hard to jump on the hood of a moving truck.

Not sure about our readers, but we’re not sure how a suspect with his hands up in the air, with his car idle and not moving, could pose a physical threat to an officer, especially when that officer jumped on the hood of the suspect’s moving truck.

Let’s call it what the video clearly show it was, it was a murder of a fellow Washingtonian by our lovely Snohomish County Sheriff Officer Deputy Art Wallin.

Nothing new in Snohomish County government where the criminals are running our judiciary, our prosecutors, our public defenders, and our Sheriff Office, and being directed by Association of Washington Cities to hide and destroy public records as “risk management.”

In both these cases, Special Assistant Attorney General, Sara DiVittorio, who managed for Association of Washington Cities and the Washington State Attorney General’s Office of Risk Management ( also known as Department of Enterprise Services), Snohomish County’s Public Disclosure Unit has committed countless felonies against the taxpayers of Washington State by hiding and destroying public records to limit liability. Instead of correcting criminal behavior committed by public officials, like former Director of Emergency Management, John Edward Pennington Jr. who raped, kidnapped, and then tried to murder a 5 year old girl in Cowlitz County, Sara DiVittorio was destroying and hiding public records to limit financial liability to the agencies.

In State of Washington v Keland Guinn

769642 In re the Welfare of AH Amended MAR

Newly elected, and fine Sheriff in blue, Sheriff Adam Fortney, said his predecessor erred when he concluded Deputy Wallin violated policy,  and against the advice of counsel, rehired Wallin. Adam Fortney and Art Wallin attended the Washington State Police Academy together,and have been personal friends ever since.

Does Snohomish County taxpayers really need another murderer on its payroll? 

Snohomish County Sheriff Adam Fortney is nothing more than a common criminal and should be Recalled from office before he misappropriates additional public money to cover up the murder of  your son or daughter. ‘

 

We are one another’s brothers and sisters.  Mr. Peters was murdered by Snohomish County Sheriff Officer Art Wallin, and cover up by our Sheriff Adam Fortney.

Is this really the best that the voters can do? Elect a criminal in blue?

 

It’s time to Recall Snohomish County Sheriff Adam Fortney for his crimes against “we the people.”

 

 

 

” Those people who are threatening you, are now threatening me” Gold Bar’s Mayor Bill

Over the last year, Gold Bar’s new Mayor William Clem, a State Farm Agent, from Monroe Washington, has trying to clean up the polluted water from the City of Gold Bar.

Bill Clem State Farm

William Clem, Mayor of Gold Bar

” Those people who are threatening you, are now threatening me”  William Clem was referring to Association of Washington Cities attorneys Shannon Ragonesi, Ann Marie Soto, Michael Kenyon, and Amanda Butler


Early this year, Gold Bar’s new Mayor William Clem sat down for a one on one meeting with the Gold Bar Reporter to discuss the state of affairs inside Gold Bar. During this meeting, William Clem confirmed that the former Mayor Joe Beavers, a convicted felon from Texas, had misappropriated over $1,500,000.00 of Gold Bar’s water funds to hide email communication.

 

According to one council member, Snohomish County obtained through electronic means medical records on the Gold Bar Reporter’s family members, and copied and pasted the Gold Bar Reporter’s name to those files, and disseminated those files via email from Snohomish County Law’s clerk Barbara Johnson and Crystal Hill in March 2009.

After Crystal Hill and terminated/disgraced Director of Emergency Management Director John E. Pennington took the illegally obtained medical files, they copied and pasted the Gold Bar Reporter’s name to those files, attempting to create a fake identity.  Then Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay had Snohomish County Sheriff Officer Rodney Rochan pass the fake identity off the NCIS Law Enforcement Information Exchange (LInX).

William Clem said ” the lawyers refuse to return our records to the City of Gold Bar, and I’m going to hire a new lawyer to obtain a subpoena and have Gold Bar’s records returned.”

In one case, involving Shavlik v Gold Bar, Snohomish County Superior Court, William Clem admitted that Gold Bar’s public records officer, Bonnie Jones did knowingly tamper with Gold Bar’s public records by removing metadata from email communication sent from Gold Bar’s former Mayor Crystal Hill and a clerk at Snohomish Law.

Bonnie Jones, aka Bonnie Scruggs, aka Bonnie Dierkson is a convicted felon from California and Hawaii, who was hand picked by Association of Washington Cities (AWC) to tamper with and hide public records inside the City of Gold Bar.

When William Clem was asked about why AWC would want to hide email communication,  Clem said ” to limit liability .”  When Clem was asked where the City was hiding Gold Bar’s public records, he said ” at the lawyers office in Issaquah, Washington.”

Michael Kenyon’s Office is located at 11 S Front St, Issaquah Washington.

In 2009, Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill ( nee Berg convicted of bank fraud, 2000, 2005) was engaged in several extramarital affairs with former Executive Aaron Reardon, John E Pennington, and Gold Bar’s former police chief. Once source inside Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office said ” Adam Cornell  and Sean Reay were also fucking Crystal. She was doorknob.”  Crystal Hill’s extramarital affairs were all with married men.

Three months ago, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officers turned over for the first time Crystal Hill’s ACCESS criminal history searches performed after she abused a six year old child in her car, plead to criminally harassing another, and after she plead guilty to and was arrested for bank fraud.

It was a perfect storm for the poor little town of Gold Bar, as there is little that the City canT get over on the Gold Bar Reporter, a person with a Juris Doctorate degree, education in this case has proven vital to exposing Crystal Hill Pennington’s crimes against Gold Bar, and federal taxpayers ( as Hill falsified FEMA contracts totaling over $100,000.00 ).

In February 2018, Snohomish County Superior Court held that the City of Gold Bar illegally withheld 585 public records from the Gold Bar Reporter for over five years, and penalties and attorney fees and cost exceed $1.5 million dollars, and this is just one case.


 

After Gold Bar’s new Mayor and Monroe Washington State Farm Agent William Clem admitted to several of us over dinner that he was being threatened by AWC and its attorneys Shannon Ragonesi, Amanda Butler, Michael Kenyon and Ann Marie Soto, we soon learned why William Clem had every reason to be extorted.

When William Clem ran for Gold Bar’s uncontested Mayoral seat Clem listed his home address as Gold Bar.  But according to the Insurance Commission, William Clem’s home address is located in Everson Washington as of December 2017, not in Gold Bar as he claimed on his Public Disclosure filings and Insurance Commission filings listed Everson Washington in December 2017.

Once inside source said ” Bill was threatened more than once inside public emails by Shannon Ragonesi…” Another source said ” Bonnie Jones was placed inside to continue the efforts of tampering with public records for Joe Beavers and AWC. She was hand picked by Beavers after it was apparent that Linda Loen was too high to function.”  Linda Loen was Gold Bar’s Mayor from January 2014 to March 16, 2016. On March 16 2018, the day Snohomish County Superior Court held that the City of Gold Bar and its public records officers violated Gold Bar Reporter’s rights to access public records by withholding public records for over five years, Linda Loen abruptly resigned as the Mayor of Gold Bar, abandoned her home in Gold Bar and purchased with cash a new home located in Aberdeen Washington.  Linda Loen was unemployed the entire time she lived in Gold Bar, but all of the sudden purchases a new house with cash, abandoning her home in Gold Bar ( that still remains vacate as of today). Sounds like a pay off from our good friends at AWC and its attorneys.

Why Attorney Michael Kenyon decided to hide Gold Bar’s public records was simple. Michael Kenyon had helped Crystal Hill’s married squeeze in covering up his rape of a 5 year child in Cowlitz County Washington in 1992.

The Gold Bar Reporter was first to report on Michael Kenyon’s assisting John E. Pennington with quashing criminal charges after he violently beat a third trimester pregnant Duvall Council member.
