Supervisor Chapman's Email Disturbing?
Chapman's email below strikes everyone as a bit odd, extremely unprofessional, especially coming from a career politician. Is it really necessary for someone to be an attorney before speaking out at a defunct public board meeting that is not ran according to the Brown Act? He appears to ramble with emotional and quick to defend his "prime choice" Burns for not knowing or not caring enough to know the Brown Act. Tick, tock, tick, tock... could it be that Chapman knows his time is short on the board and his prime choices are short also? ... tick tock, tick, tock, tick, tock....
Viewer Discretion Is Advised
Chapman curtails what items the public can speak on in a public meeting and leads board members to vote outside Lassen County's jurisdiction. Who gives the Board legal counsel? Burns?

Making a Murder is a documentary movie recently released on Netflix.com that expands over 30 years, captured in a series of episodes, lasting more than 10 hours, exposing a corrupt justice system. It's a real eye-opener to the reality that an abused justice system happens every where, even in our own community.
Interesting how Madison, Wisconsin former prosecutor, Ken Kratz's demeanor has a striking similarity to a certain former DA?
Associated Press (AP) journalist, Ryan Foley unlike most "so called" journalist was not afraid to expose prosecutor Kratz for sending racy text messages (sexting) to a 25 year old woman, while he was prosecuting her abuser. He referred to her as a "hot nymph" and offering himself as "the prize" with a $350,000 house and a six-figure salary. He told her, he wanted her to be "so hot" and "treat me so well that you'd be THE woman. R U that good?" The woman went to the police, causing a chain of events, Ken Kratz's law license was suspended, the court called his actions "appalling" and ordered him to pay $23,904 to cover the costs of the disciplinary proceedings.

Another Twist To The Steven Avery Story
Below are three YouTube videos that shows Dave Begotka discussing his experience with Manitowoc County, Wisconsin's officials, who tries to force him to join the "Men's Club". According to him most of the good jobs are controlled by the ones in the Men's Clubs. Does Lassen County have such a club or was it all just a crazy rumor about a brothel on the Main Street of Susanville a few years ago? Some things that just makes you go hmmm...

Life After Lassen County
The end of 2010, Lassen County Supervisors lured Tom Stone to Lassen County on the pretense of offering him job as the County Administrative Officer to help clean up their accounts. Former CAO Stone unveiled the misuse of Federal funds, exposing some top officials involvement. He began putting together a current capital improvement plan for Lassen County, getting the county's ducks in a row to apply for grant funds for a new swimming pool. The task given to him was not any easy one. Mr. Stone exposing the misuse of funds prompted three Supervisors, Chapman, Pyle and Hanson voting to terminate his job. Mr. Stone filed a suit against the county for wrongfully termination. In 2014, the county settled with Mr. Stone for $350,00.
Tom and Henri Stone have moved on from their bad experience in Lassen County. The Stones are currently in Switzerland living the dream and enjoying their family. Tom Stone like others hold the keys to success through hard work, honesty and determination.
Meanwhile, Lassen County seems to be stuck in their aged-old-ways of deceitful business, operating without a capital improvement plan, with no swimming pool in sight for the community.
Will there be a glimmer of hope for the folks in Lassen County with a silver lining around a dark cloud that hangs over the county's reputation that's developed over the past 40 years, with Chapman and Pyle's term ending in 2016?
A Corrupt Justice System - Danger To All
“Justice can sleep for years and awaken when it is least expected. A miracle is nothing more than dormant justice from another time arriving to compensate those it has cruelly abandoned. Whoever knows this is willing to suffer, for he knows that nothing is in vain.”
― Mark Helprin, Winter's Tale

1 Timothy 6:10
For the love of money [that is, the greedy desire for it and the willingness to gain it unethically] is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves [through and through] with many sorrows.

9 trillion dollars missing from the Federal Reserve
February 9, 2016,Mr. Correa goes before the Lassen County Board of Supervisors to bring more issues up about the misconduct of the Lassen County Sheriff Department.
Grand Jury Indicts Modoc County Deputy Nessling On Assault
The charge developed from an incident on Nov. 4, 2014, during which Jason Wilson, aka Jason Colt, was arrested for assault with a deathly weapon. While being detained, Nessling allegedly used excessive force against Wilson, who was unarmed and handcuffed at the time.
Modoc County DA Funk did not file charges against Wilson, or other suspects involved in the arrest, due to lack of evidence.
An investigation began last year after authorities received a complaint in January from Wilson. Funk said body camera footage provided probable cause to file charges against Nessling and he requested more information from the sheriff's office.
Sheriff Poindexter refused to comply on the grounds his office was conducting its own investigation and could not release details until its conclusion.
March 9, 2015, Funk filed for a writ of mandamus, in Modoc County Superior Court.
April 27, 2015, the writ was granted, compelling Poindexter release the information.
February 3, 2016, Poindexter released a statement on the sheriff's office's Facebook page criticizing Funk for empaneling a grand jury against Nessling. In the statement, Poindexter called Funk “unethical, untruthful” and “vindictive” and accused him of being on the side of defendants rather than law enforcement. “Your DA has had an ax to grind against the Sheriff's Office,” said Poindexter.“He is more than willing to accept anything he can get his hands on period, as long as it pertains to and is damaging to the Sheriff's Office specifically,” he continued. Poindexter said Funk has put Nessling and his family though “a living hell” and said the sheriff's office has called for a criminal investigation against Funk. Poindexter also said Funk's behavior led to former Undersheriff Ken Richardson retiring last month.
February 25, 2016, Grand Jury indicted Modoc County Stg. Dan Nessling on assault, a misdemeanor count of violating Penal Code section 149 (Unnecessarily Assaulting or Beating Any Person).
April 20, 2016, hearing set for 9 a.m.
Nessling's attorney Josh Oleander, of Sacramento, filed a demurrer motion, seeks to set aside the indictment because of the statue of limitations on the crime.
District Attorney Jordan Funk said he is “100 percent confident” that he will prevail on the statute of limitations argument.
Note: Modoc county has paid out two settlements in cases involving Nessling. One for $75,000 in September 2013 and another for $95,000 in August 2015.
