Concord PI testifies to paying Danville officer with cocaine in 'dirty DUI' scam

Updated:   08/26/2013 06:21:01 PM PDT




SAN FRANCISCO -- An incarcerated Concord private investigator at the center of a 2011 police-corruption scandal testified Monday that former Contra Costa County Sheriff's deputy Stephen Tanabe was on patrol for the town of Danville the night he paid him in cocaine to help set up men for drunken-driving arrests.

On the witness stand wearing red prison scrubs, Christopher Butler said he was surprised when Tanabe asked for 3.5 grams of cocaine, colloquially called an 8-Ball, instead of the $200 he originally wanted in exchange for facilitating the arrest of Oakland software executive David Lane Bauldry in November 2010.
"He was working as a deputy sheriff, and I thought he was no longer ingesting cocaine," Butler said before describing passing the drugs off to Tanabe as he sat in his Danville police patrol car parked in the Lunardi's market lot.

Using his police laptop, Tanabe pulled up the preliminary result of Bauldry's breath test a few days earlier: a 0.13 blood-alcohol level, over the legal limit, Butler said.

Tanabe, 50, of Alamo, is on trial in federal court on seven extortion and conspiracy charges for allegedly taking the cocaine and a Glock pistol from Butler as a bribe for

ss
participating in three "dirty DUI" arrests in late 2010 and early 2011, including Bauldry's. It was a scam that Butler orchestrated, or at least attempted, about a dozen times starting in 2007, he said, for women who wanted the father of their children arrested for leverage in divorce and child custody proceedings.

"If there were no children, then I wouldn't do the DUI sting," Butler said. "I don't know (why), that was just my requirement."

Tanabe's defense is that he never took any payment for participating in the arrests, and the prosecution can't prove so based on the word of Butler, whose testimony could result in time shaved off the eight-year sentence he's serving for a host of felonies uncovered after he and Contra Costa Narcotics Enforcement Team (CNET) Commander Norman Wielsch were caught selling drugs stolen from evidence lockers in February 2011.

Butler listed his past crimes on the stand, including planting drugs on people, false arrests, robbing prostitutes, running a brothel, theft, insurance fraud and planting listening devices in people's cars.
With the DUI stings, he either lost money or broke even, having to pay out attractive female decoys and others who would use ruses appealing to ego or sex drive to get his targets drunk enough to fail a field sobriety test, Butler said.

Still, he said, the DUI stings were good advertising for his Butler & Associates company website and were among the services he was going to tout on the reality show he was developing for the Lifetime network, "PI Moms."

It was through the ultimately failed reality show, Butler said, that he acquired 10 Glock pistols from the manufacturer for promotional consideration. The $600 firearm is what Tanabe wanted in exchange for arresting Livermore winemaker Mitchell Katz and Verizon software executive Hasan Aksu during days-apart stings against those men in January 2011, Butler said. As the Glock was worth more than what Tanabe was owed for pulling over targets or tipping off other officers to the drunken driver, Butler said he planned to bring him into a fourth sting to work off the difference.

Butler said he met Tanabe when they both served on the Antioch police force in 1995, and after they both left, Tanabe would do private security jobs for Butler's investigative firm while trying his hand at real estate, before joining the Sheriff's Office in 2006.

In 2001, Butler said he used two of Tanabe's personal cocaine dealers to hook up drugs for a client. Both times, he passed on the dealers' information to Wielsch, who then busted them for drug sales. Wielsch, the former CNET commander, is serving a 14-year prison sentence.

Tanabe owed a third drug dealer too much money to make his own buy in 2003, so he had Butler buy a large amount for him, Butler said. Tanabe had him dole out the sum of the buy into more than 20 packages that Butler would give him when he wanted, in an attempt to wean himself off cocaine, Butler said.
The trial continues Tuesday with cross-examination testimony from Butler. The prosecution said it expects to rest its case in the afternoon.

Tanabe heads to Trial Read the CNET Lawsuit

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Walnut Creek CA: In 2004 I was attacked, beaten and was pretty close to facing death after encountering Danville Building Inspector Gary Vinson Collins who's now deceased from a untimely fall down an elevator shaft five weeks after I gave copies of the Danville Police reports to Chief Bryden (WCPD).  That's bad enough but over the summer of 2011 my car was totaled by a San Francisco Police Officer.  

In 1989 my friend was Safeway Manager Cynthia Kempf but her killer turned out to be Pittsburg Officers.  During my meeting in Nov 2011 I was adamant about issues with Walnut Creek Police. 

Read about what happened to Collins.  His death cut all connections to CNET officers, he was the link that tied many incidents together.

By Definition: My sons are missing PENAL CODE SECTION 277-280






CALIFORNIA MISSING PERSONS

The Missing and Unidentified Persons Unit in the California Department of Justice assists law enforcement and criminal justice agencies in locating missing persons and identifying unknown live and deceased persons through the comparison of physical characteristics, fingerprints and dental/body X-rays.
Subscribe to receive Missing Persons Bulletins in your e-mail inbox.
In California, a missing person is someone whose whereabouts is unknown to the reporting party. This includes any child who may have run away, been taken involuntary or may be in need of assistance. It includes a child illegally taken, held or hidden by a parent or non-parent family member (See California Penal Code Sections 277-280).
  • Paradise Unified School - held, hidden and concealed 
  • San Ramon Unified 2007 - Held, Hidden and concealed 
  • Paradise CA - hidden, false police reports, deliberate mispresentation of court orders, knowingly and willingly destroying court orders 

General Damages
On about May 27th 2013 Paradise Unified School district willingly, willfully and knowingly concealed minor children from non-custodial parent.  That said administrators deliberately altered court orders, deleted school files then upon non-custodial parent discovery that said files were deleted, altered and that Lawful Court Orders were replaced with Falsified documents so that other teachers would interpret court orders as falsely reflecting that a Temporary Restraining Orders


There is NO waiting period for reporting a person missing. All California police and sheriffs' departments must accept any report, including a report by telephone, of a missing person, including runaways, without delay and will give priority to the handling of the report.
Schools are part of the network to help find missing children, not only through notices required to be given to a public school district or private school within 10 days of a child's disappearance but also through use of our Missing Person Bulletin.
By making photographs of missing persons available, we seek to aid in the identification and recovery of missing persons. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, one in six missing children are recovered as a direct result of someone recognizing their photo and notifying authorities. We also offer resources on this website for locating missing persons and safeguarding your children.
The following offers a summary of some of our programs. Further information is available by selecting the program categories on the right menu.

PENAL CODE 
SECTION 277-280 

277.  The following definitions apply for the purposes of this
chapter:
   (a) "Child" means a person under the age of 18 years.
   (b) "Court order" or "custody order" means a custody determination
decree, judgment, or order issued by a court of competent
jurisdiction, whether permanent or temporary, initial or modified,
that affects the custody or visitation of a child, issued in the
context of a custody proceeding. An order, once made, shall continue
in effect until it expires, is modified, is rescinded, or terminates
by operation of law.
   (c) "Custody proceeding" means a proceeding in which a custody
determination is an issue, including, but not limited to, an action
for dissolution or separation, dependency, guardianship, termination
of parental rights, adoption, paternity, except actions under Section
11350 or 11350.1 of the Welfare and Institutions Code, or protection
from domestic violence proceedings, including an emergency
protective order pursuant to Part 3 (commencing with Section 6240) of
Division 10 of the Family Code.
   (d) "Lawful custodian" means a person, guardian, or public agency
having a right to custody of a child.
   (e) A "right to custody" means the right to the physical care,
custody, and control of a child pursuant to a custody order as
defined in subdivision (b) or, in the absence of a court order, by
operation of law, or pursuant to the Uniform Parentage Act contained
in Part 3 (commencing with Section 7600) of Division 12 of the Family
Code. Whenever a public agency takes protective custody or
jurisdiction of the care, custody, control, or conduct of a child by
statutory authority or court order, that agency is a lawful custodian
of the child and has a right to physical custody of the child. In
any subsequent placement of the child, the public agency continues to
be a lawful custodian with a right to physical custody of the child
until the public agency's right of custody is terminated by an order
of a court of competent jurisdiction or by operation of law.
   (f) In the absence of a court order to the contrary, a parent
loses his or her right to custody of the child to the other parent if
the parent having the right to custody is dead, is unable or refuses
to take the custody, or has abandoned his or her family. A natural
parent whose parental rights have been terminated by court order is
no longer a lawful custodian and no longer has a right to physical
custody.
   (g) "Keeps" or "withholds" means retains physical possession of a
child whether or not the child resists or objects.
   (h) "Visitation" means the time for access to the child allotted
to any person by court order.
   (i) "Person" includes, but is not limited to, a parent or an agent
of a parent.
   (j) "Domestic violence" means domestic violence as defined in
Section 6211 of the Family Code.
   (k) "Abduct" means take, entice away, keep, withhold, or conceal.




278.  Every person, not having a right to custody, who maliciously
takes, entices away, keeps, withholds, or conceals any child with the
intent to detain or conceal that child from a lawful custodian shall
be punished by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding one year,
a fine not exceeding one thousand dollars ($1,000), or both that
fine and imprisonment, or by imprisonment pursuant to subdivision (h)
of Section 1170 for two, three, or four years, a fine not exceeding
ten thousand dollars ($10,000), or both that fine and imprisonment.



278.5.  (a) Every person who takes, entices away, keeps, withholds,
or conceals a child and maliciously deprives a lawful custodian of a
right to custody, or a person of a right to visitation, shall be
punished by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding one year, a
fine not exceeding one thousand dollars ($1,000), or both that fine
and imprisonment, or by imprisonment pursuant to subdivision (h) of
Section 1170 for 16 months, or two or three years, a fine not
exceeding ten thousand dollars ($10,000), or both that fine and
imprisonment.
   (b) Nothing contained in this section limits the court's contempt
power.
   (c) A custody order obtained after the taking, enticing away,
keeping, withholding, or concealing of a child does not constitute a
defense to a crime charged under this section.




278.6.  (a) At the sentencing hearing following a conviction for a
violation of Section 278 or 278.5, or both, the court shall consider
any relevant factors and circumstances in aggravation, including, but
not limited to, all of the following:

or illness.
   (2) The defendant inflicted or threatened to inflict physical harm
on a parent or lawful custodian of the child or on the child at the
time of or during the abduction.
   (3) The defendant harmed or abandoned the child during the
abduction.
   (4) The child was taken, enticed away, kept, withheld, or
concealed outside the United States.
   (5) The child has not been returned to the lawful custodian.
   (6) The defendant previously abducted or threatened to abduct the
child.
   (7) The defendant substantially altered the appearance or the name
of the child.
   (8) The defendant denied the child appropriate education during
the abduction.
   (9) The length of the abduction.
   (10) The age of the child.
   (b) At the sentencing hearing following a conviction for a

not limited to, both of the following:
   (1) The defendant returned the child unharmed and prior to arrest
or issuance of a warrant for arrest, whichever is first.
   (2) The defendant provided information and assistance leading to

locating and returning the child as provided in Section 3134 of the
Family Code, and to the victim for those expenses and costs
reasonably incurred by, or on behalf of, the victim in locating and
recovering the child. An award made pursuant to this section shall
constitute a final judgment and shall be enforceable as such.




278.7.  (a) Section 278.5 does not apply to a person with a right to
custody of a child who, with a good faith and reasonable belief that
the child, if left with the other person, will suffer immediate
bodily injury or emotional harm, takes, entices away, keeps,
withholds, or conceals that child.
   (b) Section 278.5 does not apply to a person with a right to
custody of a child who has been a victim of domestic violence who,

harm, takes, entices away, keeps, withholds, or conceals that child.
"Emotional harm" includes having a parent who has committed domestic
violence against the parent who is taking, enticing away, keeping,
withholding, or concealing the child.
   (c) The person who takes, entices away, keeps, withholds, or
conceals a child shall do all of the following:
   (1) Within a reasonable time from the taking, enticing away,
keeping, withholding, or concealing, make a report to the office of
the district attorney of the county where the child resided before
the action. The report shall include the name of the person, the
current address and telephone number of the child and the person, and
the reasons the child was taken, enticed away, kept, withheld, or
concealed.
   (2) Within a reasonable time from the taking, enticing away,
keeping, withholding, or concealing, commence a custody proceeding in
a court of competent jurisdiction consistent with the federal
Parental Kidnapping Prevention Act (Section 1738A, Title 28, United
States Code) or the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act (Part 3
(commencing with Section 3400) of Division 8 of the Family Code).
   (3) Inform the district attorney's office of any change of address
or telephone number of the person and the child.
   (d) For the purposes of this article, a reasonable time within

least 30 days. This section shall not preclude a person from making a
report to the district attorney's office or commencing a custody
proceeding earlier than those specified times.
   (e) The address and telephone number of the person and the child
provided pursuant to this section shall remain confidential unless
released pursuant to state law or by a court order that contains
appropriate safeguards to ensure the safety of the person and the
child.



279.  A violation of Section 278 or 278.5 by a person who was not a
resident of, or present in, this state at the time of the alleged
offense is punishable in this state, whether the intent to commit the
offense is formed within or outside of this state, if any of the
following apply:
   (a) The child was a resident of, or present in, this state at the
time the child was taken, enticed away, kept, withheld, or concealed.
   (b) The child thereafter is found in this state.
   (c) A lawful custodian or a person with a right to visitation is a
resident of this state at the time the child was taken, enticed
away, kept, withheld, or concealed.



279.1.  The offenses enumerated in Sections 278 and 278.5 are
continuous in nature, and continue for as long as the minor child is
concealed or detained.


279.5.  When a person is arrested for an alleged violation of
Section 278 or 278.5, the court, in setting bail, shall take into
consideration whether the child has been returned to the lawful
custodian, and if not, shall consider whether there is an increased
risk that the child may not be returned, or the defendant may flee
the jurisdiction, or, by flight or concealment, evade the authority
of the court.



279.6.  (a) A law enforcement officer may take a child into
protective custody under any of the following circumstances:
   (1) It reasonably appears to the officer that a person is likely
to conceal the child, flee the jurisdiction with the child, or, by
flight or concealment, evade the authority of the court.
   (2) There is no lawful custodian available to take custody of the
child.
   (3) There are conflicting custody orders or conflicting claims to
custody and the parties cannot agree which party should take custody
of the child.
   (4) The child is an abducted child.
   (b) When a law enforcement officer takes a child into protective
custody pursuant to this section, the officer shall do one of the
following:
   (1) Release the child to the lawful custodian of the child, unless
it reasonably appears that the release would cause the child to be
endangered, abducted, or removed from the jurisdiction.
   (2) Obtain an emergency protective order pursuant to Part 3
(commencing with Section 6240) of Division 10 of the Family Code
ordering placement of the child with an interim custodian who agrees
in writing to accept interim custody.
   (3) Release the child to the social services agency responsible
for arranging shelter or foster care.
   (4) Return the child as ordered by a court of competent
jurisdiction.
   (c) Upon the arrest of a person for a violation of Section 278 or
278.5, a law enforcement officer shall take possession of an abducted
child who is found in the company of, or under the control of, the
arrested person and deliver the child as directed in subdivision (b).
   (d) Notwithstanding any other law, when a person is arrested for
an alleged violation of Section 278 or 278.5, the court shall, at the
time of the arraignment or thereafter, order that the child shall be
returned to the lawful custodian by or on a specific date, or that
the person show cause on that date why the child has not been
returned as ordered. If conflicting custodial orders exist within
this state, or between this state and a foreign state, the court
shall set a hearing within five court days to determine which court
has jurisdiction under the laws of this state and determine which
state has subject matter jurisdiction to issue a custodial order
under the laws of this state, the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction
Act (Part 3 (commencing with Section 3400) of Division 8 of the
Family Code), or federal law, if applicable. At the conclusion of the
hearing, or if the child has not been returned as ordered by the
court at the time of arraignment, the court shall enter an order as
to which custody order is valid and is to be enforced. If the child
has not been returned at the conclusion of the hearing, the court
shall set a date within a reasonable time by which the child shall be
returned to the lawful custodian, and order the defendant to comply
by this date, or to show cause on that date why he or she has not
returned the child as directed. The court shall only enforce its
order, or any subsequent orders for the return of the child, under
subdivision (a) of Section 1219 of the Code of Civil Procedure, to
ensure that the child is promptly placed with the lawful custodian.
An order adverse to either the prosecution or defense is reviewable
by a writ of mandate or prohibition addressed to the appropriate
court.


280.  Every person who willfully causes or permits the removal or
concealment of any child in violation of Section 8713, 8803, or 8910
of the Family Code shall be punished as follows:
   (a) By imprisonment in a county jail for not more than one year if
the child is concealed within the county in which the adoption
proceeding is pending or in which the child has been placed for
adoption, or is removed from that county to a place within this
state.
   (b) By imprisonment pursuant to subdivision (h) of Section 1170,
or by imprisonment in a county jail for not more than one year, if
the child is removed from that county to a place outside of this
state.

The Danville Council has known about CNET since 2004

By PETE BENNETT - Contra Costa Watch EMAIL
Phone: 510-460-5641
Posted: 06/13/2013

Many reading my blog will wonder why this litigant is upset, first take a look at my son here and see the near emaciated state in 2008 .  In 2007 my son melted down at the Pinewood Derby but what happened would be Violation of my Civil Rights Under 


Tanabe was present, as was Judge Joel Golub and unknown to me a slew of police officers who used the Boy Scouts of America event to cover their connections to CNET as they all knew that Butler knew Tanabe, they all knew that my I was beaten in my house, they all knew my truck was set ablaze, they all knew Gary Vinson Collins was the assailant, they also knew Loretta Hale, many would know attorneys at Greenan via his representation of Contra Costa County and Seeno Construction.  

I would surmise that many appear to be glaring light so bright it's hard not see that I told an officer of the court that a Danville Building Inspector nearly killed me and that someone rigged my truck for arson.  What gives Joel is it possible that you unfairly fined me over 12,000 for tickets when you gave out $75 fines to the guys here illegally working in the Gardens of Contra Costa County.  According to the Cannon of Ethics you screwed up. 

When a truck erupts in flames at 90 mph chances of survival are slim but I was lucky. Nearly ten years later the Alamo 1st Mormons suspected then are living large and apparently guilt free of a near attempted murder.  









The Danville Town Council knew about CNET long before Tanabe was arrested

Contra Costa County Litigant Adjustment Bureau - Division of the Contra Costa Bar Association

By PETE BENNETT - Contra Costa Watch EMAIL
Phone: 510-460-5641
Posted: 08/09/2013

Walnut Creek CA: The Contra Costa Bar Association secret division exposed.  It has come to my attention that my 2006 Lawsuit was derailed when my counsel Sage Sepahi was beaten in Walnut Creek CA which effectively ended my litigation against Contra Costa County. 

This is same way they handle all disputes as in 2001 my attorney was Donald Gene Moats offices were burned down at 1776 Ygnacio Valley Road Walnut Creek forcing insurers to endure an estimate 2 million dollar loss.  

It seems another player in this story is retired SFPD Lt. David Oberhoffer who first appeared in my Pleasant Offices at 1932a Oak Park Blvd Pleasant Hill CA - where Ian Lotta Scott mother, a retired employee of the Solano County District Attorney offices was helping me.  Izzetta could not figure out how I'd endured so many accidents and incidents.  Sadly her son died of a sudden asthma attack on September 21st 2011 a year after I was forced out of those offices.  

This litigant adjustment bureau has a long history of roughing up litigants in a mormonesque type approach they'll do what's needed to whistle blowers like Ernie Scheerer or me.  

This victim father once headed the Contra Costa Bar Association whose Litigant Adjustment Bureau probably rigged my truck for arson in 2004, tampered with my ABS systems so in 2004 my 1994 Ford Explorer right front wheel would lock up at high speed which occurred right around the time this woman served me with Divorce Papers in Fairfield CA.  

I know that they took that Ford Explorer as my ex said she needed to move some things a few weeks later I almost became a Ford Explorer Rollover Victim when just my right front wheel locked up at high speed.

CNET Officer Tanabe living large as ever

A Letter to my son 
The reality is you were kidnapped 
Dear William,


I am sorry that you've had to go through all this, that you've living a trailer, that you've had to watch another driver who tried to kill us hit the wall at High Speed ultimately kill himself, or that your father almost burned to death on 680 but like magic there is no record of that arson fire.


There is little chance that I can help you as I've been decimated financially, spent in total about 14 days in jail, lost seven cars via accidents, arson, hit and runs, and expert vandalism that the State Department of Insurance should really investigate.

A few months ago I made a desperate plea for help with the Walnut Creek City Council but apparently Officer Burns decided on July 27th that Pete Bennett needed a talking too and once again labeled a mentally ill assailant and denied my requests to call an attorney. Officers Burns all I'm trying to do is get access to my sons. Seems like you guys want to kill me for some reason and no officer Burns you don't know what I told the FBI 25 years but you appeared quite nervous. By the way whenever have a hearing, file a claim or file a lawsuit the Contra Costa County Litigant Adjustment Bureau finds me before I can appear.

The Walnut Creek Police are about as close to Uber Ops Domestic Terrorism Operation you'd ever find as when I called 911 back in June 2011 from 140 Crosby Court #1 Walnut Creek less than a month later after conversations with Chief Bryden and DA Investigator Darryl Jackson my car was totaled. I know it's just a coincidence but perhaps there is connection. Would you guys like to consider that my phones have been under surveillance for about ten years by Chris Butler plus others - so I am sure my calls are recorded.


By the way I was driven from Apartment by the legal associate of Former Walnut Creek Bomb Squad member Richard Grossman who is probably friends with Lt. David Oberhoffer (SFPD - retired) (Cops the same ages around here know each other) who showed me pictures in June 2010 of the Piedmont Lumber Fire? The same fire I'd mentioned in the November 1st 2011 meeting with Bryden and Nordoff. This meeting is so critical as I'm going to say out loud "over the course of 2011/12 numerous persons near me were killed" and it's not some coincidence to be ignored.


In between a now former Walnut Creek Officer who first name is Greg with possible full name of Greg Fish was a regular at Dallimontes which is in the same shopping center. I had the pleasure of nice short fist fight with Ron who threw me out of his pathetic Italian Joint but if it happens again I won't be so cordial.






My Suspect Officers are from these Departments


Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill, CCSO and SFPD.










The sad reality is many officers are clearly connected to totaling my car but LPD Chief Christensen who's name bears a very strong resemblance to David Christensen which is very common spelling of Local Mormons. Even though former Bishop Clark said he would call he has not, even Pastor Reed of Hillside Church whose friend.

It seems that Hillside Covenant Church doesn't want to acknowledge my concerns, that it took six months for them to turn over their insurance company, that the Walnut Creek Police let go home when I was trying to get you the court order IME which was scheduled on July 6th 2011 but your mother drove all the way down to intercept my attempts to get to a medical professional.

You may not know this but I attempted on May 23rd 2013 by coming to Paradise High School to take you to a doctor. The principal Ms Johns called the Paradise Police when I discovered your school records were altered. When I took your to court in Family Law.


I know that you were deathly afraid of Officer Tanabe at the Pack 36 Meeting on February 4th 2007 the same day your mom vanished. At that meeting were meeting were police officers from Contra Costa Sheriff, Concord Police Department and Judge Golub who I told many, many times that someone tried to kill us on the 680 back in winter 2004/05 in months after the same F-250 truck was rigged for arson. I am sure that Alamo 1st Mormons are connected to this arson fire but they've got Pete Amnesia but one important fact they also sue the Airlines when planes crash. Even though I called NTSB with simple fact I know two pilots killed in rather coincidental accidents they don't believe a connection exists. I tried getting legal help from the Contra Costa Bar Association but ... that association is under a legal spell called "don't assist Bennett" but do what you can to kill him.

Of course my crazy story happens to include far too many deaths from far too many accidents that they call coincidences that I call far too coincidental. I know it's just a coincidence that the it's coincidental that it's a coincidence that many are connected to my mail servers taken in Dec 2010 when I was coincidentally running from a San Francisco Cop who coincidentally once show me pictures of the Piedmont Lumber fire that all Central Costa County Residents know was not some coincidence but they said it was accidental. My one opinion is the owners are taking the unfair brunt of the allegations.

Loretta Hale: November 1st 2013 former Danville Pack 36 parent who attended the same cub scout meetings with Judge Golub who's nephew is same Golub you tutored at Montair Elementary
Nathaniel Greenan: April 18th 2011 whose father is James Greenan who represents Contra Costa County and Seeno Construction - please read about their troubles here http://diablodynasty.blogspot.com ,whose company stiffed me for 20K in 1999 which in theory is part of your lost college education fund. The Seeno's take but give so others can think they are givers but they are takers and in the 80s a whole lot of people near these givers in the 80s turned up dead. That cabinet shop I lost in 1989 was related to those takers. I am telling you this via the blog in the hopes that one day you'll discover this site as your email has blocked.
Brian Schewling: Alamo 1st Member He died right after services at Alamo 1st and quite frankly looked very bad that day but coming a survivoir of poisoning he looked as bad as me. I would have died that night in 2005 from a heart attack today as I doubt at 56 I could last through a 105 fever, vomiting blood requiring 3.5 liters of fluid.
Patricia Noel: Alamo 2nd Member died of apparent drug overdose suicide - I don't be really blunt but former Officer Tanabe is connected to a person that is connected the court, the same family law center that concealed my documents from Presiding Judge Barry Goode

This page and others will contain the chronology of events at the library where your children go and yes they carried guns into your library


Please read about this case.  The City Attorney offices will go to any length to discredit litigants but my case allow officers to cover-up an assault of an officer of the court so that Danville Officers can get away with all kinds CNET related antics. 

This drug deal could easily have occurred in the Library.

Open Letter: Bryan Wenter former Walnut Creek City attorney

By PETE BENNETT - Contra Costa Watch EMAIL
Phone: 510-460-5641
Posted: 08/08/2013

Bryan Wenter, 
Walnut Creek CA 

Open Letter

Dear Mr. Wenter, 

I am sure you're fully aware of my plight and the pages on my blog.  Last week I was detained and questioned at the N. Main Starbucks.  The accusations were baseless like so many other but it was another attempt to dissuade this witness.  

The recent coroners inquest results on Banta match very closely to my blog just a few weeks before that incident.  My concerns are for my safety and it's clear something is going on near me, the city and how they are derailing police reports and obstructing justice.  

In a few weeks I'll sending in dozens of ethics letters to the State Bar with an intense focus on City Attorneys.  In Danville they settled the Katz matter saying they had no prior knowledge but in fact they are well aware. 

The accusations against the bar will be RiCO level as few know about the insurance fraud part of the CNET story.  You might which is why you exited but I got wind of it years ago.  

Your police department operates with more than one agenda but more than officer has thrown me out of City Hall.  

The other issue is you should be very careful and seek protection from the State Police, Bell, Polllecek and Shimansky plus the 20 from 2001 at Doc's pharmacy are no accident.  I doubt you knew the younger business partner committed suicide so just like the 1776 Ygnacio Arson Case, or that Stuart Safine died days after his case against Contra Costa County was gutted by the Judge, or that an attorneys near the Seeno stories are turning on dead in Nevada but the para glider death night be more than an accident but I've heard via attorneys that a case against Seeno opposing counsel was killed in a accident.  I can't confirm it but Contra Costa County has a far higher rate of death of public officials than anywhere in the country.  

At the end of the day the database programmer gives you the answers that looked fishy but you couldn't or didn't have time.  

I started with them in September 2011 and I've only know ten persons to be killed.  You bet I am blunt now and when my Database goes online few will disagree.  

Enjoy your new path but I'd prefer that you'd send letters as a concerned citizen about any event that seems fishy.  Your job is balance ethics between client privilege. In my matters I've lost millions but once I discovered Butler, Wielsch and Tanabe were connected to Benny Chetcuti then i realized that my near fatal incidents were not so accidental.  I am now positive that CNET was employed to take me down and that my life insurance policy was the $900,000 target.  


There are more in Danville that match my allegations.  


http://www.law.cornell.edu/ethics/ca/narr/CA_NARR_4.HTM 

One last thing - this company plays heavily into this story as my attorney's (former) father in-law represents them and it just happens overlay the same agencies that have harassed me, found me via my EBT card or payroll and would have the ability track my credit cards.  

It was used on me here in Walnut Creek so don't think that Bryden and others were deaf dumb and blind about CNET - they've taken houses, stolen property, planted false evidence and driven people out of business - why do you think the bartender at Havana is dead?  read about Chuck Silverman accidents on Pleasant Hill road.  There are five cases between 680 and the tunnel. 


If you need a little nudge - its pretty obvious the Walnut Creek Police operate in a callous and dangerous manner, leading a young man into a dangerous scenario that nearly killed him.  This little game has been a played on me in front Safeway, Starbucks and I've had officers and undercover taunting me in MacDonalds and the Walnut Creek Library with the use of informants leading me astray.   

That means ladies and gentleman they are willing to create unexpected scenarios with your children in the crossfire when they could easily wait for a better day.

Laser Induced Blindness - perhaps not so far fetched

By PETE BENNETT - Contra Costa Watch EMAIL

Walnut Creek CA: While this father, a Contra Costa County Resident seeks one primary goal which is to be reunited with his sons but at present they are missing.  The events near my story are endless, the personal events clearly point to Police Officers with a goal.  Not all are bad but a core select few are a clear and present danger.  The logo is needed so that blogger can grab this picture for the front side tiles.  

Asiana 214 Investigation:

At this time the NTSB appears to have ruled out the pilot was blinded by a flash of light.  I'm not as convinced as "Blinded by the cop" was posted long before the Asiana 214 crash.

This citizen and soon to be candidate uses this blog to deflect off adversaries who seem to continually violate my civil rights but they already know the Contra Costa Bar Association won't help at all.  These adversaries have unbridled access to technology, resources and capital coupled with friends in squad cars that anything is possible.  

What happened on July 20th 2011 was as deliberate as it gets but the attempts to deflect the investigation so glaring I wrote letters that documented this incident thereby laying a trail  breadcrumbs for investigators to follow.  Since this accident there have many others where this blogger suspects a pattern exists of well concealed incidents.  Keep in mind the Bay Area is chock full of the brightest researchers, engineer, biologists, programmers, scientists of all flavors in the world and with brightness something wicked is often found.  

The statements about being temporarily blinded resonated strongly as my thoughts about the flash that blinded me was it was different.  I had 5 to 10 seconds of blindness, was hit from the rear, the car interior flooded and it was more like a warm but super bright pulse but since that night a vision issue has emerged.  

The source on this is rather is truly coincidental as it's from scientist working at the People's Republican Army.  I've just begun the process of beefing up my laser knowledge but we've all experienced or know of those hand-held laser pointers - the same ones the FAA is so concerned about.  My position is then and is today it was white vs. infrared.  My client who was died in San Francisco imported the same lasers as Key Chains.  He's the one that died at 36 of sudden unexplained death? It happens everyday even to a former Danville Mom just around the corner from Valle Vista just down the street from Suicide, near the dual fires that were probably arson that created two perfect adjacent parcels side by side.  What a coincidence?

Determination of laser energy density threshold leading to glare-induced blindness by pattern visual evoked potential in guinea pigs

Zhen-feng LI, Cong XIONG, Hao YIN, Feng XIA, Jing AN, Lei ZHANG, Zuo-ming ZHANG

Abstract


Objective To explore the application of pattern visual evoked potential (PVEP) in examination of energy density threshold of laser beam that may lead to glare-induced blindness in guinea pigs. Methods Stainless steel bolts (5mm in length, 1.2mm in diameter), as reference electrode and recording electrode for the PVEP measurement, were implanted into skulls of 27 guinea pigs, located in 6mm proximal to bregma and 10mm distal to bregma. These guinea pigs were randomly divided into three groups with 9 (18 eyes) for each group, and they were exposed to laser beam at wave length of 635nm, 660nm and 690nm, respectively. The PVEP was recorded in each group before and immediately after laser irradiation, and also on day 2 and day 4 after laser irradiation in guinea pigs blinded immediately after laser exposure. The latency and amplitude of P wave in PVEP before irradiation was considered as control value for each group. When PVEP could not be recorded instantly after laser irradiation, the intensity of electric current applied at that time was considered as threshold value of each laser beam. The power of electricity(P) values was then calculated, and energy density threshold that led to glare-induced blindness was figured out according to currentpower curve (P-I curve). On day 2 and day 4 after irradiation, PVEP was additionally recorded, and latency and amplitude of P wave were compared with that of control values to examine the recovery of visual function of the blind guinea pigs. Results The energy density thresholds of the three laser beams at wave length of 635nm, 660nm, 690nm respectively were 356.36×10-9J/cm2, 349.58×10-9J/cm2 and 343.93×10-9J/cm2. In guinea pigs became blind after exposure to laser beams at wave length of 635nm, 660nm, 690nm, the latencies of P wave recorded 2 days after blindness were not significantly different with control value of each group(t=-0.356, P=0.729; t=0.492, P=0.633; t=-0.445, P=0.666), while the difference in amplitudes was statistically significant (t=11.01, P=0.000; t=5.223, P=0.000; t=5.702, P=0.000). Four days after blindness, the latencies and amplitudes of P wave recorded on the guinea pigs were also compared with the control values, but no statistically significant difference was found (latency: t=1.329, P=0.213; t=2.040, P=0.069; t=-0.894, P=0.392; amplitude: t=-3.030, P=0.768; t=0.194, P=0.850; t=-0.948, P=0.365). Conclusions The energy density threshold of laser beams, at length wave of 635nm, 660nm, 690nm, may lead to glare-induced blindness in guinea pigs is around 350×10-9J/cm2. PVEP examination is a useful and harmless way to determine the energy density threshold of laser beam which will cause blindness.

Open Letter: 

For about ten years I've emailed many reporters with the Contra Costa Times and I'm positive you've received the letters especially the ones between Eric Nunn and myself.  The Tanabe Trial completed it's evident a much larger conspiracy case is under way.  There is little chance that I'll ever recover my losses but the letters to Nunn are now critical to the larger conspiracy.  

Now that the Banta Inquest is complete I have support for my theory that persons in the area have been poisoned.  

You all the victims, Nunn, Bell, Shimansky, Glover, and Pollecek but you also all the others or know of them but a few come to light, Lesher, Ian Lotta Scott (Worked at CC Times for years), but definitely knew Taugher.  

I am going to write you one last time as these well positioned operatives managed to turn my business upside down forcing me to storage and because Chris Butler was wiretapping me this is how they were able to scare off my customers.  

I've lost millions and was almost killed more than once but your pre-election response was pathetic and inaccurate.  It's my material but due to circumstance should be handed over the FBI.  

If your tech support needs help I'd gladly restore files for you. By the way Symantec was my client before all this crap hit me.

To Risk Managers and Insurance Underwriters: 


On this blog you will learn how Contra Costa Law Enforcement defeats your actuarial efforts.  My comments clearly demonstrate that there have been far too many incidents near me and even though my losses are in the millions - nothing happens.  


I've reached the end of my years as programmer but my past has taught me some hard lessons but that last car incident was enough, several attempted or actual hit and runs back to back weeks apart then being accused of attacking a city worker on a lawn mower in Walnut Creek it's clear someone has something to hide.  


The detective doesn't know it but I sent his plate numbers to the FBI and another agency who's become quite suspicious about what I've learned.  


In a few weeks I'll have a loss analysis on numerous structures fires, accidents and deaths where I believe the industry has been hoodwinked. I'm collection and building my own database from news reports and other reliable sources.  


Then since I can't get a police report I'm going to emailing every business in town to explain to them why their rates will skyrocket which I encourage those efforts. This will force the residents to finally rally about the wages of Fire Chiefs pulling down 300K per year and then I've found a fire in the same development where four Chiefs live with a fatality.  



Failure is not an option as Failure equates to Fatalities.  

There is no question that this candidate of office requires extra protection is truly concerned that they will focus on his sons as one of my long held and well documented allegations are that bacteria, undetectable drugs, an expert with bio-weapons, bio-toxins and/or Pharmacology delivered my near fatal nightmare on the ER. I have long lasting effects from that and fully expect this will play strongly when my day comes.  Over ten years ago I was on steroids for asthma now I sing Bocelli - it was an advice nurse at CCCMRC who said I've heard your calls for years now are you sure your not being poisoned.  I answered I've suspected it and a former cop near me happens to be other unexpected deaths.  


I think you've got a network of operators with badges, law licenses and co-conspirators.  


Just ask me but remember I'm sleeping under adverse conditions and I'd like to see remedy so I can get my sons out of harms way.   My ex and I mutually know two crash victims and each are suspicious in nature but I know more than ten.  



Get em Tonto we need billions for the department of insurance to function and you pay billions far too often.  


By the way I need a job but I'd need some clothes, dental work, license, car, about $250,000 to pay off the medical, child support but that doesn't include the roughly Two Million I would have made doing what I once was very good at which is developing databases. My adversaries have badges with guns, radios, convicted for illegal wiretaps, known for extortion, arson and in my case in 1988 murdered a friend execution by one of Pittsburg CA finest Officer Eric Bergen.  


Good luck and yes I've been screwed but I tried very hard to take of my family but keep in mind that I know where one likely arsonist works, know his name and know how he did it and there are three witnesses to his statement but I'm sure that you'll concur that Danville has an arsonist.

WCPD: I want my police report for June 2012

Just like farmer says Mayhem Strikes 



Risk Managers Read This Page

Walnut Creek CA:  On June 16th 2012 the Walnut Creek City Council was informed and updated via email.  It is coming on nearly sixty days and the only one to contact me is three cops with guns.  One ran from me but new ones don't, one that I know was fired decided it was time to watch me sing Karaoke at Round Up last month.  That same ex-cop who I ran into at Virginia Hills Shopping Center decided it was OK to tell he was going to drop me.  



Do nothing and expect whoever they are to strike again whether it be Arson, hit and run or poison - it's hard to ignore the numbers.

He wasn't when I told him that Butler was the same cop I was talking about a year earlier when I was driven from my office.  My theory on Walnut Creek Police is they have developed quite a strong network with capabilities of disruption any business in town, that they are bold enough approach me in front the Walnut Creek Library with accusations just a few weeks after another cop drove me into on-coming traffic and totaled my car ($5,000) loss or that they felt it's OK to ignore that a member of Hillside Covenant Church attempted to run me over or that they targeted a petitioner, beat him up and let the suspect go.  

It's how they do it as I've been beaten, threatened and endlessly harassed by a narrow set of officers but sadly are in the chain of command and given that I'm an arson victim perhaps they're gunning for me because whoever they hired to rig my truck for arson failed but they came damn close to BBQing this brand new and serious candidate for office.  

Remember threatening a candidate for office brings the misery teams with broad powers.  That's what I got when I complained about my other hit and run where my other car was totaled.  

It is truly a strange thought running office but when the State of California Threat Assessment unit arrived I was clear and have the letters to prove it that I was clear that Public Officials faced a myriad of threats and even clearer to Lafayette Police that someone blinded me. Our first meeting was September 2011 and it's been a joke.  I've lost a contract with PG&E worth $500,000 (est of 2.5 years of revenue), I've lost my car, my sons, my place to with the help of the ex head of the Walnut Creek Bomb Squad who works with the son of a councilman in Danville and they all know the other Hillside Covenant Church Youth Director connected to the hit and run.  

With that I've gone to the State Department Insurance as I've been defrauded as have others in the area as when Police Officer deliberately alter, destroy, change, withhold, deflect or outright shit down investigations that's actually two cases.  

I want to file a claim for medical with VCP but the Oroville PD won't help so I had to sue.  The claim has been denied and now I've got decide to feed my family or sue Oroville for being mugged at 1AM by five juveniles, two adults and others unknown to recover the $12,000 medical bill.  If I'd had a car I wouldn't be Oroville, nor would have been in jail but in 2007 they took my license and DCSS clerk deliberately stalled my license restoration.  I got behind from really, really simple shit - beatings, poisoning, hit and run, arson and on the other end of numerous attempted murders and good ole Captain was screaming at me why did I go to the FBI - simple asshole I've long suspected cops were behind incidents after all your buddies in Pittsburg Murdered my friend Cynthia Kempf in 1988.  

Do you really think I closed my eyes and went to Kansas?   I have 30 years of intel I've gathered, names, persons, business and relationship that you wouldn't think anyone would know and I'm a database programmer who's incredibly good at names, surnames and other neat correlations that allow me notice thing Benny Chetcuiti's sister was Butlers second wife or the name on the proof of service is one of the PI moms.  

Next time you need to fuck up somebody's life fuck your own.  

Insurance Fraud is a felony but you have to wonder why can't I get one police report through the system?  Isn't more than 50 incidents enough or should be expecting another set of bodies on the side of the road.

Pete Bennett for Public Office - Seeking handshakes

I am pleased to announce that I intend to run for public office.  What offices affords me the best protection when I'm attacked.  If it takes running for President then that's what I'll do as I am simply very tired of being a target.  


My initial platform will be as follows: 



  1. Federal Question: Redefining the Handshake - What is a handshake? It rhymes with Milkshake, Earthquakes, sounds like mistake, phonetically close misstatement, or mistook, mistaken, but perhaps misspoken, or better misrepresentation, or misinterpretation, or maybe it was exceptional or exponential or maybe we it's a derivative, or perhaps gravitational, extravaganza or institutionalization or nationalization with trepidation in preparation of launching a rotational objective focusing on a contradictory triangulation depending upon unknown coordinates but if you had the right map you'd have your target.     
  2. Reorganizing the Contra Costa Bar Association - 
  3. Unified Case Conflicts checker
  4. What to do when your lawyer lies
  5. How to identity a handshake aptly titled "Sergeant You've Burned Your Career" 
  6. Let the Airlines know that the TWA Flight 800 could have been taken down by a missile stolen from the San Pablo Armory in 1989 as the missing C-4 bricks are likely connected to this allegation here " Wielsch and Butler Seeking to sell Military Grade Explosives" 
No one is helping me so screw all near these cops - I suspect this leads to Cal DOJ, up and down the state, over the Vegas then to Long Island.  

The timelines fit - all undetected spanning 30 years.

Toe Clipper Chasers Now Hiring

East Bay CA:  Every so often my stomach turns about how spend our money to stave off the enemy which brings me the toe nail clipper chasers.  


We could cut down of millions annually if we stopped importing so many workers that need to fly back and forth.  


Sounds nutty but it's really expensive costs while many are on food stamps with a willingness to work but we've got to fight for jobs.  



Look at this - we melt down cars in the US, send to China, then ship it back over, then ship it around the country to be old at Walnut Marts only to siezed by the TSA workers who've by now got it all by now.

The real story is send the data overseas to others manage it then wait three years for that stolen data to be used against us.

More on my theory.

I am planning to become a candidate for office so I can speak without being accused of assault by handshake.

Walnut Creek officers testify about fatally shooting 22-year-old man in December

Walnut Creek officers testify about fatally shooting 22-year-old man in December

By Malaika Fraley Contra Costa Times
POSTED:   08/06/2013 06:08:49 AM PDT | UPDATED:   A DAY AGO


MARTINEZ -- Four Walnut Creek police officers testified Monday that they had "no choice" but to shoot a 22-year-old man when he came at them with a 10-inch knife while inside his apartment, in a killing that has spurred a $15 million lawsuit against the city.
"I gotta tell you, as a grown man, I was scared for my life," Capt. Michael Sugrue said tearfully at the coroner's inquest into the Dec. 27, 2012 fatal shooting of hairdresser Anthony Banta Jr.
Sugrue, and Officers Holley Connors, Guy Ezard and Amber Griffith testified that they all fired at Banta after responding to a 911 call placed at 3 a.m. by the girlfriend of Banta's roommate.
The couple told police that after a normal evening with Banta, they awoke to him on top of his roommate, choking him. After a struggle, they barricaded themselves in a bedroom, the door of which Banta was allegedly trying to break down.
The woman told a dispatcher that she thought Banta was sleepwalking. On the 911 call, she's heard screaming, "Anthony, Anthony, please wake up!"
Police said they entered the apartment through a large broken window next to the front door and spotted Banta pacing at the top of the stairs with a crazed look in his eyes and a chef's knife in his hand. They testified that he looked "through" them as they shouted their commands: "Put down the knife or we are going to shoot you."
"He yelled back, 'Just shoot me,'" Connors testified. "I told him I do not want to shoot you, put down the knife."
Banta then jumped down the staircase, nearly landing on the officers, and several of them fired their guns, they said. He was at their feet when he partially rose and they fired again, killing him.
Afterward, Sugrue said, the woman who called 911 hugged him and said, "This wasn't like him."
"I didn't know this person was a roommate until that very moment. I didn't understand at all," Sugrue said.
Banta was hit six times, but it was one shot to his head and another to his chest that were fatal, forensic pathologist Arnold Josselson said. He had marijuana and a very low level of alcohol in his system.
As Banta had no known history of mental illness, Josselson was asked what could have spurred the behavior that the roommate and his girlfriend told police was "very out of character" for Banta.
Josselson said it could have been caused by one of three things; 
  1. a designer drug that could not be detected by testing,
  2. An underlying mental illness that suddenly manifested
  3. psychosis caused by chronic marijuana use
My comments on these three outcomes support my ongoing allegations that someone has been poisoning suspects, homeless, and economic targets for the purpose of gain and profit.   Please visit the tacticians toolbox article posted long before this truly sad event.  

My goal is to find the truth and too save lives.  By the way this outcome potentially supports a theory that Pilots Eric Nunn and Peter Branagh were brought down with a designer drug and heck you might as well consider John F. Kennedy Jr. Fatal Flight in the Long Island Sound.  


Contra Costa County holds inquests into officer-related killings as a matter of protocol, and juries decide the mode or manner of death. Banta's jury ruled his death was accidental, though the verdict is essentially meaningless, having no criminal or civil implications.

Banta's family in January filed a $15 million wrongful death lawsuit against the city of Walnut Creek and its officers in federal court. It alleges that Banta was unarmed, and was shot accidentally when the officers tripped over themselves at the bottom of the stairs.
"We were mostly struck today -- not by the evidence -- but the evidence we know exists but was not presented," said the family's attorney, Larry Peluso. "After today, there is no doubt at all that we will be going forward (with the lawsuit)."
