Past Redding Council Member Describes "Majority of Redding Citizens Stupid Fools"

As a past display advertising rep for your paper in the seventies, 
who has watched and read this paper every since, may I say, 
your editorial staff has never been more in tune, as your editorial 
proves, with this cities citizen needs and desires. Never. 

So finally, we all agree there is a problem with Redding's leadership. 
I think I know what and where this disconnect comes from. I ran 
into an ex Redding city council member recently at one of the cities
 local supermarkets and I asked about the city/REU financial 
arrangement and that person explained the accounting and legal 
agreements that exist between the two agencies. The council 
person explained the arrangement was needed to fund the city 
managers salary and expenses and the city attorney expenses. 

Remember Dunavey? (or whatever his name was) who threw 
away tens of thousands of rate payers REU profits to attempt to 
do away with constitutionally protected free speech and other local 
citizen's rights? What a waste of a law degree and treasure. But 
that is not the problem I discovered, it is the result of it. This ex 
council person described to me the average Redding citizen was 
basically stupid fools. You won't hear any such description from 
members of the existing council, some who worked with this ex 
ouncil member, as they want and need more of you "stupid fools" 
to pony up and vote their so called "safety sales tax" into law. But 
understand this, if this is how we Redding Citizens are viewed by 
these people at City hall, you can bet the management, including 
city management, likely all feel the same way about us. When you 
stop and think about this, those of you who possess more than a 
grammar school education, it's about the only conclusion that actually 
makes sense, when you see how they operate and just how far out 
of touch they are with their supporters and the citizens of our city. 

No police cams equal no accountability, equal NO NEW TAXES Period.

  1. Anita my "legal problems" will be over before you know
    it. Karen Emerson is where I was nearly 3 years ago. I
    grew up and Redding, but had lived in Anderson and
    Cottonwood areas for sometime. Then I moved back to
    the family home to become mom's caretaker. We had a
    neighbor at the end of her street running a 7-11 style
    24-7 drug sales operation. For a couple of years I
    watched these people conduct business without boundaries.
    That ended the day I found someone's used needles
    thrown from a customer's car into mom's yard. Then I
    got involved. The women running the home had a small
    children and moved out quickly when I told her WE were
    about to go to war and she and her friends might be
    at a disadvantage unless they too had severed in one.
    (yes, I know, with an up and coming trial I have no
    business discussing this here and now) But I think it's
    important that you, and others understand the cost and
    the games and politics being played with your neighbor-
    hoods and your communities safety and security by the
    local police chief and some of Redding Police Departments
    union members.

    As one of the very first to speak to the Shasta County
    Board of Supervisors about the need for a local citizen's
    police review board. As one of the first, (if not the
    first, to speak of the need for personal cameras to
    be supplied to all County and City law enforcement, as
    one of the first to run a successful (2 1/2 year Citizen's
    Neighborhood Safety Patrol when asked to volunteer by
    my local homeowners association). I was able to see trends
    in local law enforcement, such as response times and
    even no response to my calls were fairly common. The
    local druggies who ran the 5 neighborhood drug houses
    would call the police, tell them there was a fellow
    pretending to be a cop parked at the entrance to our
    subdivision and then watch as officer came to shake
    me down. My life was threatened multiple times, druggies
    came to mom's house just to remind us,
    • So some officers who actually did come to our area thought my
      patrols were, or should be illegal. Others commented they wish
      they had a dozen volunteers like me around town. It became fairly
      easy, after a while, to identify the good neighbors and the good
      officers that supported my GOD given and my sworn right, taken
      when I joined our military (but never un-taken) from the bad ones,
      who felt threatened by a meir citizen, helping to defend and
      protect his loved ones, his home and the homes of others who requested
      my help.

      The day I filed for a city license for Nextdoor Citizens Safety
      Patrol was the day the powers that be decided My "safety" patrol
      and I needed to be taken down a notch. On a false complaint, filed
      by a neighbor in a adjoining subdivision, where I patrolled by
      invitation, I was arrested by what I believe was a loyal RPD Union
      member, looking for advancement, in what is hoped to become an
      ever expanding police force, one that a recent study suggested
      that our community safety was not a result of lack of numbers
      but rather how those numbers were being deployed. So be it. If
      the word JUSTICE imprinted on the front of the John Balma Justice
      Center means anything at all, I will certainly be found not
      guilty of all charges, because I am certainly not guilty of any
      of the false charges made against me. My actual statement to
      the arresting officer was short when I realized early on what
      team he was playing for. So much of the balance of his report
      was produced by him, not me. I was then jailed with needed meds
      related to my 8 agent orange vascular operations and procedures,
      and forced to bail out $10,000 dollars where druggies are allowed
      to leave on their own O.R. I got the message. Believe me.

      When I started the patrol there were no Neighborhood Watch support
      from RPD. The support for this very effective tool is hollow as
      the local union would like to see more gun toting $150,000 a year
      officers out there.

      • As I sit here on my deck watching car after car run our four-way
        stop sign into our subdivision, healing from the side effects of
        my last 8th agent orange proceedure I promise my neighbors as soon
        as my health and my legal expenses and trial is over to return to
        active volunteer duty again. Hopefully by then, more of you will be
        ready to step up and protect the things you love and care about.
        Even $10 million given to RPD a year and 50 new officers cannot do
        that for you. They know it, but your safety and security is not at
        the top of their list, at least not at the top of many rank and file
        members. If they really were willing to be held accountable for their
        actions they would have added personal cameras a couple of years ago.
        • All I know is these 5 local drug houses thrived on their watch
          and four of the five were forced out of business on mine. In
          defense of those hard working, honest, god fearing officers
          out there risking their lives for us all everyday, I give Kudos
          to the officer who called me recently and said, "we are going
          to see what we can do about that fifth drug house Mr Boek.
          My comment was God Bless You Sir.

        Believe Me I Do Not Make The Comment I'm About Too Lightly

        As someone who once volunteered and spent 10 Months in the
        Vietnam theater as a Military Police Sentry Dog Handler,  I am
        slower to volunteer anything these days.  Since winning my 10 yr
        adventure with the VA regarding the agent orange and the 8 related
        surgeries and procedures I've had following that, I now have a pretty
        good life-style, with bills paid on time, credit, a home again and
        more blessings than any person should be entitled too.  Seems
        the statement is true "you can't out-give God"

        Why then put my fortunes, future and maybe even my life on the
        line for my fellow citizens then, many who have proven to be nothing
        but sheep, or sheep in wolf's outfits?  I promised when I was able
        to get on that jet home, all in one piece, I'd live for and speak for the
        58,233 men and women, killed in Vietnam.  It's a goodness and justice
        thing and a small way to pay back to YOU, their sacrifices, for them,
        if that makes any sense to you.

        So, here goes, my attorney, it seems is being contacted by local
        residents and perhaps an attorney or too to tell him of my social
        media work and comments and suggest they are hurting my case.
        Of course they are. Attempting to shut me up, by members of the
        local police union, is also what the entire case is about. or someone that knows him, as that I send
        any story tips to him viva he email.  Okay, before I take my attorney's
        advice, (someone who pays one what I'm paying, would be a fool,
        Not Too.)  Right?  Here's that story TIP, as in The Tip Of An Ice-

        When contacting the RRS about the misspelling of my last name on
        electronic media and my account there...I receive back a response.

        Earl Allen Thanks for reaching
        out to us.  We'll get back to you
        as soon as possible. If you have
        a story tip, please email it to

        Sure, I answer, Oh, I have a few,
        but local citizens and even maybe
        an attorney or two from Redding,
        the city, are writing my attorney
        in Benica suggesting he muffle
        me, regarding my social media and
        the actual facts of my up and
        coming trial in November,  My
        comment to my attorney was, if they
        are truly that concerned about me
        being arrested, jailed, or being
        convicted of a crime they know I
        never committed, or the injustice of
        someone, "falsely witnessing"
        against me (one of 10 original sins
        for a reason) why don't they write
        local media themselves, or post
        on social media, or contact the
        powers that be, instead of trying
        to put pressure on me, through my
        attorney, to shut up between now
        and the start of my trial and the
        vote of the so-called "safety tax".
        Which, after all is what this entire
        case is REALLY about?

        So here is the hot story TIP requested.
        I challenge our Chief, to use his
        next community event for the
        airing of the video, taken outside
        of a local sports retailer, on their
        store video equipment, showing I'm
        told by the big guy, who a month
        later, still sported a black eye over
        the beating. I'm told by this local
        8 year businessman, that a gang,
        kinda like you'd expect, maybe
        in a city like Stockton, of RPD
        officers, numbering maybe as
        many is 8 officers or more beat
        this big fellow and then charged
        him with 5 felonies wanting to
        see him put away for life. The
        DA, knowing it maybe hard to
        sell it to citizens, just how more
        officers, managed, trained and
        operating like these, will help
        make Redding citizens "safer",
        if he can just sell it to them this
        time.  Gotta fill that new police
        station.  Will it make your
        neighborhoods safer?  You?
        Unlikely.  Maybe just the opposite
        will happen.  Watch the video.

        Again, like years ago now, after
        calling for a citizens review board
        in front of Shasta County Board,
        throwing my hat into the ring
        the same day our existing Sheriff
        did, to get a chance to address
        similar actions taken by that agency.

        After speaking up against so called
        "investigations" the need for cop
        cams and the conflict of interest
        that certainly exist when one police
        agency is able to investigate the
        other local agency when similar
        beatings (as described by this big
        man) ended in the death of what
        the RRS allows to be labeled as
        druggies, or mental or felones,
        and the other labels these agents
        leak to the press right after the real
        crime, in some cases, are committed.

        Now, If the rest of you do your job
        I should be able to keep my mouth
        shut, take my attorneys advice, until
        my day in Court at the Shasta County
        Just-Us Center.  Knowing and meeting
        John Balma when he was alive, I can
        tell you, he's rolling in his grave
        knowing his names on the building.

        Picture taken by Jam Schultz of The Redding Record Searchlight.  I'll be
        down to pay for it's use here on this coming Monday Jim.  thanks
