Mohave County TERRORISTS are threatening to kill protesters – claim police back them 100%

6/4/20 11 am:  I updated below with Supervisor Jean Bishop’s disappointing response, condoning the threats to kill us by IGNORING them.   Nothing from Mayor Miles, KPD, Sheriff Schuster or any other official.  Racist bastards. There would have been SO many more peaceful protestors FOR equality and AGAINST murder if people hadn’t been threatened by the racist militia asswipes and claims that the law will stand 100% with the killer racists — NOT denounced by law enforcement!

I planned on attending this PEACEFUL protest at Locomotive Park in Kingman either on 6/2 and/or on Friday / Saturday:

Born in Germany in 1958, I was raised to be anti fascist.

“Never again!”

My entire life I’ve sought to understand why so many people are so hateful, violent, brutal — lacking compassion and empathy for their fellow human beings.  There is no better place than Mohave County — where Timothy McVeigh practiced bombing — to study racists, bigots, terrorists …

I grew up among white people and I was very afraid of “the black man” who would kidnap us if we didn’t behave.  I still remember how scared I was when we had a chimney sweep at our house and when an asphalt crew was parked outside.  Black was scary!

My grandma told me to stay away from the gypsies (brown people) as they’d surely rape me.

I was about 13 when I met the first real black person, Mikey, a few years younger, from a black US military family that had moved into our neighborhood.   I do not remember why or when I realized that “the black man” I was so afraid of was just a fairy tale to scare little kids.  We loved hanging out with Mikey, drinking, partying and practicing our English.

So what is wrong with so many ADULTS in Mohave County? 

Why are so many in Mohave County openly racist, violent and intolerant in 2020?

WHY are they THREATENING to KILL us for protesting the MURDERS of black people?

WHY are they not protesting WITH us?

Dave Riem:  Hey KINGMAN !
Get Ready!
The thugs will be in town this Tuesday through Saturday .
The two bitches hosting this need a sniper round .
And anybody else that gets in the way .
Polish your postols and wipe down your rifles .
Enough is enough !

Last night I sent this death threat to KPD via Facebook private message:

Have you arrested Dave Riem yet or do I have to contact the FBI?

When I didn’t receive a reply, I called KPD, ended up emailing the screenshot to officer Miller and he advised that there is absolutely NOTHING illegal about these threats! Somehow, Dave Riem did NOT threaten to kill us as per KPD and the counter terrorism people.

Is that Trump’s doing? Since when can you threaten to KILL someone?

Here’s another FB comment from this morning:

Terry Laufer:  Just fyi if anyone starts to riot or block the streets… we will shoot you dead and run you over…. 0% Discretion I have the family to defend… the police also stand with us 100%.

If someone blocks the streets, that’s an attack on Terry Laufer’s family?

Could someone explain that to me?

So here’s my next message to KPD:KPD thanked me for the information, but didn’t answer my questions!

You’re welcome.  Could you get the police chief to provide an answer to my questions?

Which side are you on?

Will you kill us when someone blocks a street or breaks a window?

Since I didn’t get a response, I finally spend my afternoon creating this post instead of working in my gardens on this cloudy and unusually cool day.

This corrupt County HAS to be held accountable.

It is time for CHANGE and to put the alt right nut job gun loving and people hating RACISTS and TERRORISTS in their place (preferable prison.)  These are the same people who dared BLM (Bureau of Land Management) in Nevada during the Bundy confrontation and the government backed down.

A HUGE mistake!!!  As you can see, these VIOLENT thugs think they can get away with murder now.


I’m going to get this URL to KPD and Sheriff Schuster for answer to my questions:

Which side are you on?

Will you kill us when someone blocks a street or breaks a window?


UPDATE 6/4/20:

Sheriff Schuster and KPD IGNORED me.  No surprise there.

Supervisor Jean Bishop wrote on 6/3/20:


It is my understanding there were no issues with the protesters.  The event appeared to be very well organized, and the participants peaceful as they interacted well with other groups including KPD, MCSO, National Guard members and a small group of armed patriots/militia.
There has been no current intelligence shared with me pointing to specific threats other than social media comments that so far,  have not been confirmed.

Jean Bishop
Supervisor D-4

Sad.  NO support for equality and the cause.  No outrage over the racism.  No answers to my questions.

Law enforcement and Jean Bishop’s REFUSAL to deny that they stand with thugs like Bubba and Rick Armstrong who will “shoot you dead and run you over” if someone breaks a window or blocks a street.

Please note “Bubbah’s” comment below:  “People like you make me sick …”    Is he Terry Laufer?
These militant alt right THUGS are the PROBLEM!
6/4/20:  Right-wing extremists arrested for planning riots at protests in Las Vegas
6/4/20: Prosecutors describe racist slur as Ahmaud Arbery lay dying
And our law stands with THEM.

The end of LMRFD?

After Charlotte and Ellen resigned from the LMRFD board last fall, I stopped going to the board meetings since LMRFD uploaded the meeting videos too.

As soon as I stopped attending the meetings, they stopped uploading recordings:
LMRFD YouTube channel

According to Jay Fleming, there are issues with volunteers and safety violations and you can follow his blog:
Life and Death in Dolan Springs The Lake Mohave Ranchos Fire District

Last week chief Tim Bonnee was arrested. From the Standard:

Dolan Springs fire chief arrested, charged with domestic violence

… Deputies conversed with Bonnee whom they encountered in the driveway outside the home.

“Bonnee stated he and his 17-year-old stepson had been in a verbal altercation and he attempted to leave the residence,” said Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Anita Mortensen. She said Bonnee indicated that his wife and step son were in the doorway as he tried to exit the home.

“Further interviews revealed that Bonnee attempted to shove the two out of the doorway and the victim shoved Bonnee away from his mother,” Mortensen said. “The men then began striking each other with closed fists.”

Mortensen said the teen suffered injuries to his face including a swollen eye and bruising. Bonnee was transported to the Adult Detention Center and booked into jail.

The fire board had an emergency meeting on Monday:

3)EMERGENCY BUSINESS. a.Discussion and possible action regarding: Fire Chief Tim Bonnee re: Administrative Leave. (Cass)

•Director Cass motioned that Fire Chief Bonnee is on paid Administrative Leave effective immediately until further notice and any communication with district personnel shall cease until further notice with exception to administrative personnel, and the Chief is directed to not discuss any matters pertaining to the allegations filed with exception to the Board Chair, Board Clerk, Administration and at Board Meetings. Director Karash 2nd. Directors Karash, Tennant, Campbell and Cass voted, “Aye.”Motion carried, unanimously.

Is that legal?   At what point does a fire chief lose his 1st Amendment rights?

This was a domestic dispute and not at all related to LMRFD business.   He can’t work while under investigation?

Maybe the board just wanted him to have some more paid vacation.  After all, the incompetent administrative assistant Karen Jackson gets to work from home, INSTEAD of providing services to the chief and to the public at the station.

And I see Steve Berg is back on the board.  He bankrupted our wonderful Grapevine Mesa district.  It’s tough to watch …

So Trumpesque.

US Bank waives payments and interest for 30 days

While there’s talk about unemployment benefits for self employed, I’m out of cash now and it’s time to call the banks to see what my options are regarding my credit cards.   In January I bought a new sectional for the Airbnb I manage and I did some redecorating.   Now all my spring bookings are cancelled.

Airbnb generously refunded all MY money to the guests — as if I had created this virus.


Calling US BANK

There is NO option to make payment arrangements in the hellish voicemail menu, but luckily I somehow eventually got to hold music for a human.   After 19 minutes on hold I finally got to a person, but she could only change my address (in case the post office is closing).

I had been transferred to the department for leases and other loans, not credit cards. She transferred me again.

After 45 minutes I finally got to a person who could help me and she was very helpful.

For 30 days I don’t have to make payments because I have no income and there will be no late fees and so important, NO interest.  

Eventually I’ll be talking to US Bank and regulators about their about doubling my interest rate to around 25%.  I have no late payments, collections or any other derogatory data on my credit.  I pay my accounts on time.   There was NO reason to charge me 25% interest and this ought to be illegal.

They are FORCING people into default.   I’ll have to deal with that when I have more time.

50 minutes on the phone and probably saved me about $200 in interest/month.

So if you’ve been laid off or otherwise have financial problems due to COVID-19, call your bank and see what they have to offer!


3/23/20 Mohave County Press Conference — incompetence documented

3/17/20: Empty shelves in Kingman supermarkets

I never thought I’d see empty shelves like I saw today.   Bread, potatoes, eggs, onions and even organic meat was in low supply. I went to Safeway next because Smith usually doesn’t have organic whipped cream and if they do have it, it’s over $6.   Just like Smith, Safeway was out of many staple foodsContinue Reading

And of course it’s the same water we drink in water haul. “Serves: 957” — how do they know?  They couldn’t be talking about homes, right?  We don’t have that many people. I’mContinue Reading
