The Murders




The Loretta Hale Murder

Nov 11 2011

The Bhatia case should be murder investigation, the Hale case was conveniently closed but should be reopened as on or about March/April 2014 an Alamo mom was found on the trails above Alamo with single gunshot wound to the temple which to me sound just like the SFPD Lester Garnier shooting from back in 1988 and my arson case in 2004 sounds like the bombing of the IRS Agents car in 1988 sent the investigators round file leaving them enough to run over and kill homeless for life insurance just like the LA Grandma's story.

THe Official Meeting

Nov 1 2011

Bennett/Nordoff/Bryden




During the Chief Bryden held in the office of Walnut Creek City Manager Ken Nordoff who heard my allegations that I'd been attacked again. This critical meeting set a benchmark linking The Danville Building Inspector Incident to CNET Arrests, but other incidents were raised that link to least one murder in San Ramon CA.

Within weeks Gary Vinson Collins was dead, along with two Danville Area Moms Roma Bhatia and Loretta Hale of Boy Scout PACK 36 who each died untimely deaths. I personally knew all three victims but Danville Police Officer Steven Tanabe and former Judge Golub were each members of PACK 36 Danville part of the Meridian Council.

Bennett's Attorney Attacked, Threatened and Beaten




The Danville Building Inspector Incident

One day I got a call from my counsel Sage Sepapi with news that he too had been beaten under nearly identical circumstances of ligation about to be brought against the Town of Danville. Within months my counsel went out of his way to get out of representation.

When Chris Butler's testimony against Stephen Tanabe oozed about insurance fraud, arson and other events it was clear as day that Police Officers and DA investigators had been lying to me for years and my collection of over 100 police reports were part of larger criminal operation coming within Contra Costa County.

The arrests of officers began nearly seven years later in early 2011 when the California Department of Justice arrested Chris Butler and Commander Norman Wielsch, when thier faces appeared it was clear I'd been setup but the setup extends to the Bar Association, Contra Costa Superior Court, The Contra Costa District Attorneys offices and further to the municipal pooling authority where claims die with witnesses.

The Unknown Safeway Murder Stories and DEA Scheduled Morphine Patches

Safeway / Nestle / Dreyers




this is one of my for raising to Safeway my detractors and adversaries who linked to Steve burd and the Bennett versus Southern Pacific for a 1989 my witness inwas murdered.

the witness murder and and now 30-year cover up by the former leadership at the country Costa District Attorney's Office of which the leader who self was convicted of perjury.

Safeway Pharmacy murder

when Jamie sheets was hired by Safeway in Walnut Creek California he was under investigation by district attorney for possible murder case involving three of his patients due to a compounding error.

That was Doc's Pharmacy on May 30th 2001 where several months later the anthrax cases emerge killing witnesses around the country.

Steve burd is idolized as the CEO of the century he walked away with Millions but he happened to have hired a pharmacist in a quasar murder case who decided to commit suicide using barbituate patches stolen from the Safeway store, I came along after analyzing the fate of mr. Sheets the pharmacist and realized that it didn't add up.

part of this was the realization that the pipeline explosion down the street involved the brother of my friend who she was killed in a murder-suicide.

Compounding that was the fact that I learned that they fired the current pharmacist that new the pharmacist that committed suicide.

by then I was already cognitive of the fact that my witness it been killed in 1989 and then discovered Steve Birds connection to Southern Pacifi and then one day I realized oh my God they killed my Witness.


Heading

the distribution models of today using European MRP programs manage stock levels to balance out inventory cost spread between thousands of stores. 

Using Alka-Seltzer on the Shelf and comparing it to morphine patches in the back in a very small Pharmacy it was easy to show that just two boxes of Alka-Seltzer would have been the more likely quantity of morphine patches as I learn to a personal friend that new Jamie Sheets first one who said it was 28 barbituate patches not 6 as they said on the news.

Running with that I began to study the DEA and the issues around the around the fentanyl problem as I was very dubious when somebody said 1 million doses ended up in West Virginia. I guess nobody noticed the trucks and the reality is the trucks never went there that was just a bill of lading.

Culpability of Safeway executives

The temptation to make millions off of stealing drugs from your own company is easy when you consider that you control the vertical and the horizontal and the keyboard.

At this store at 600 South Broadway Walnut Creek I interacted in a negative way with far too many people and then begin to realize that the stalking was coming from within Safeway, I also concluded from the resistance from within Safeway after my calls were being rebuked realized after Steve burd personally had me thrown out of the store.


One of the key binding elements of the story is Southern Pacific and Safeway executives correlate strongly to Kinder Morgan and the pipeline's which correlates wrongly to corre which Coral Lakes from 2 billion dollar fraud which correlates to 911.

A few months before the retirement of CEO Miller I made a challenge on video man up show up or pay up or both.

He resigned, I have a 1988 murder of a Safeway employee that was a good friend of mine killed by police officers that are connected to the district attorney that was indicted for perjury.

the hardened steel shell of the conspiracy was convicted and it's just going to keep on going from there.

right now those of you that know something can help the country Costa district attorney and the grand jury undo roast in justices.

Mary Jo White (born December 27, 1947) is an American attorney who served as the 31st Chair of the Securities and Exchange Commission from 2013 to 2017. She was the first and only woman to be the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, serving from 1993 to 2002.[2] On January 24, 2013, President Barack Obama nominated White to replace Elisse B. Walter as Chair of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.[3] She was confirmed by the Senate on April 8, 2013 and was sworn into office on April 10, 2013.[4][5] As of 2014, she was listed as the 73rd most powerful woman in the world by Forbes.[6]
On November 14, 2016, White announced she would step down from her SEC position at the end of the president's term.[7] She is now the Senior Chair at Debevoise & Plimpton.

Life and career[edit]

White was born in Kansas City, Missouri, and grew up in McLean, Virginia. She received a B.A. from the College of William & Mary in 1970. She earned an M.A. in psychology in 1971 from The New School for Social Research[8] and a J.D. degree from Columbia Law School in 1974,[2] where she was a Writing & Research Editor of the Columbia Law Review.
White became Acting United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York in December 1992, and in March 1993 was appointed by President Bill Clinton as U.S. Attorney for the Southern District. She is noted for having led the prosecution of John Gotti and overseen those of the terrorists responsible for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, chief among them Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman and Ramzi Yousef.[9]
After President Bill Clinton's controversial last-day presidential pardons, she was appointed by new Attorney General John Ashcroft to investigate Marc Rich's pardon.[2]
For 10 years, she was chair of the litigation department at Debevoise & Plimpton,[10] whose self-proclaimed "core practices" and expertise are focused on the success of Wall Street financial firms.[11] The Huffington Post called her "a well-respected attorney who won high-profile cases against mobsters, terrorists and financial fraudsters over the course of nearly a decade as the U.S. attorney for Manhattan."[12]
It has been asserted in Rolling Stone magazine that, among other duties at Debevoise, White has used her influence and connections to protect certain Wall Street CEOs from prosecution,[13] including a notable case involving the firing of Gary J. Aguirre for investigations into the CEO of Morgan Stanley executive John J. Mack.
In 2013, White, as a lawyer for JSTOR, an original complainant in the prosecution of Aaron Swartz, asked the lead prosecutor to drop the charges after JSTOR changed their position to oppose Swartz's prosecution because of steps Swartz had taken to appease JSTOR.[14]
When White started at the SEC in April 2013, most of the agency's enforcement cases from the 2008-2009 financial crisis were either settled or near completion, freeing up resources for other work.[15] In a shift for the agency, White announced in June 2013 the SEC would start demanding more admissions of misconduct as part of an enforcement settlement.[16] In an October 2013 speech, White announced a new SEC enforcement tactic practiced by neighborhood beat police to root out petty crime. In her speech, White cited a March 1982 Atlantic article, espousing law enforcement's "broken windows" concept that theorizes enforcing small, petty crimes—like smashed windows—can prevent bigger crimes. Focusing enforcement attention to these small crimes avoids breeding an environment of indifference to the rules, White said.[17]
During her tenure, White had to recuse herself from some of the SEC's biggest enforcement cases as a result of her prior work at Debevoise and that of her husband, John W. White, a lawyer at Cravath, Swaine & Moore. By February 2015 White had recused herself in about 50 cases setting up deadlock situations within the Commission and thus, per a report, compromised the effectiveness of the SEC.[18]
In 2016, Mr. Robot had the first filmed fiction appearance of White in the season 2 premiere.[19]
On November 14, 2016, White announced that she would step down from the SEC after nearly four years service at the end of President Obama's term in January 2017.[20] She earned, in the immediate wake of her announcement, a complimentary overall review of her term as an independent regulator from the Wall Street Journal despite differences the editors had had with her. The editorial contrasted White's service to that of others "in one of history's most ideological Administrations", as it termed the Obama presidency.[21]

Criticism of White's leadership at the SEC[edit]

On June 2, 2015, Senator Elizabeth Warren wrote a letter to White indicating that her "leadership of the Commission has been extremely disappointing"[22] pointing out numerous shortcomings and failures during her tenure. Warren admonished that White failed to finalize certain Dodd–Frank rules, did not curb the use of waivers for companies that violated securities laws, allowed settlements without admission of guilt, and was too frequently recused because of her husband's activities.[22] In return, White argued that the agency had been effective and that Warren had mischaracterized her statements and the accomplishments of the agency.[23] The Massachusetts senator's attack on White generated backlash from the White House, Congress, and Wall Street, with defenders calling her a tough but fair enforcer of the rules.[24]
On October 14, 2016, Senator Warren sent a formal written request to President Obama asking for the immediate dismissal of White as Chair of the SEC because of her refusal to develop public disclosure rules of political contributions made by corporations.[25]
In 2017, White was a member of a National Football League external expert advisory panel on domestic violence, reviewing allegations against Ezekiel Elliott. He was suspended for six games.[26]
In August 2018, White chaired the investigation related to Ohio State's Coach Urban Meyer's denials of knowing about domestic violence committed by one of his former assistant football coaches, Zach Smith.
