Open Letter; CEO Anthony Early

Dear Mr. Early, 

We share a common suite of events - we are both arson victims.  The difference between our situations vastly different as my story leads to Police Officers, Attorneys, Private Investigators, a long unchecked investment scandal plus a slew of verifiable fires, kidnappings, arson cases, and sadly a few murders connected to your employees or vendors that are also connected to my world.  

During the PG&E Engagement I had several attempts to take my life via accidents, beatings, muggings and while around town. I've been homeless off and on since 2010 which started right after I met a PG&E High Performance Engineer.  A retired San Francisco Police Lt. who was at the Piedmont Lumber (Fire/Arson) in 2010 was standing next to your Engineer.  I believe his job would be calculating little things like Pipeline Pressures.  

I've filed police reports but none have gone anywhere but the FBI, State and perhaps a few from Contra Costa County are actually doing something. 

While the Attorneys toss the workers away like pawns on a Chessboard one of the worlds largest utilities is clearly under attack but worse while the attorneys jostle PG&E faces a paradoxical issues.  The recent announcement by Jon Wellinghoff former Chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and retired FBI Rick Smith but based on their statements I've been emailing ATF, FBI, State Investigators and PG&E Attorneys about what happened to my laptop that was breached several times.  

Your vendor placed thousands of sensitive PG&E documents on my laptop which was stolen in 2012 but recovered by the Walnut Creek Bomb Squad but lacking a decent explanation of where it was for 10 hours.  

On April 4th 2012 a pipe bomb found on the Iron Horse Trail is another dangerous incident.  This is the same mission critical location where Kinder Morgan Gate Valve is located which was shut down the 2004 Kinder Morgan 

There are several problems with the 2004 Kinder-Morgan Fire

  1. First Person Witness Deceased 
  2. Please see At Risk Los Lomas and Murwood Students deceased several unusual deaths 
  3. Students now adults interviewed separately consistently state they heard two explosions
  4. One of those students is the son of a friend - No one ever gave him a completed report on his sons drowning -  Williams, Mary Alicia Driscoll,
  5. The other witness is a Federal Agent / and partner whose first person pictures were stolen.  The person who stole the camera was arrested and sent to prison for a dubious murder case.

Alamo CA: 

On or about August 2004 where I was nearly burned alive on 680 but even with California Highway Patrol, San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District they failed to investigate an obvious attempted Murder via Arson.  

About eight years later police officers were arrested in what's locally known as CNET Scandal and you'll begin to sounding off.  But this one undetected arson case would have impacted the Kinder Morgan Pipeline Fire Investigation.  

My story is well known and documented with FBI, State Attorney General, California Highway Patrol, and San Ramon Valley Regional Fire Protection District.

A fireball several stories high roared out of the ground near downtown Walnut Creek on Tuesday, killing two construction workers, injuring six and leaving two workers missing after a crew accidentally cut an underground jet fuel line.
The blast occurred about a quarter-mile away from the intersection of Newell Avenue and South Broadway, where two crews contracted by Mountain Cascade Inc. of Livermore were installing a large water main for the East Bay Municipal Utility District.
One group of workers was welding in a trench, and a second group was digging another trench with a backhoe that apparently broke a pipeline that carries aviation fuel from Concord to the San Jose International Airport, said EBMUD spokesman Charles Hardy and Walnut Creek police investigating the accident.
Ellen Sabaduquia, 54, of Walnut Creek was driving on Broadway at 1:30 p.m. when the inferno shot out of the ground a few feet from her Toyota minivan. 
She watched in horror as two screaming men emerged from the hole, engulfed in flames.
"I thought I was in Fallujah for a moment," Sabaduquia told The Chronicle, her voice trembling. "It almost looked like slow motion from a horror movie."
Sabaduquia said she wanted to get out and pick up the workers, but the flames were too ferocious and she was forced to throw her vehicle into reverse.
The six workers who were injured were all burned -- three critically, authorities said. Those with the worst injuries were airlifted to Doctors Medical Center in San Pablo in critical condition with burns over 40 to 60 percent of their bodies, said hospital spokeswoman Paula Ferron.
Two victims were airlifted to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek with burns so severe they were transported again to a burn center at UC Davis, according to a hospital spokeswoman. There was no information available on the sixth burn victim.
Initial reports by authorities had three workers dead, but later in the evening police said that they had confirmed two fatalities and retrieved the bodies of those victims. Authorities did not disclose the names of the dead or the missing.
The accident sparked a series of underground explosions, sent a huge column of black smoke into the sky, burned one home and damaged several others on Doris Avenue, and prompted the evacuations of Las Lomas High School and Muirwood Elementary.
"This is the worst day of my life," said Bill Williams of Mountain Cascade, general contractor for EBMUD's $180 million Walnut Creek-San Ramon Valley Improvement Project to increase water flow in the area.
Williams fielded phone calls Tuesday afternoon from worried wives and scanned work rosters to try to figure out who was unaccounted for.
The explosion rattled shops at nearby Broadway Plaza and caused students to jump in their seats. The force was so intense it blew out the windows of several apartments on Creekside Drive across the street and charred the cab of an 18-wheeler parked near the construction site.
Initially, firefighters were prevented from approaching the searing hot flames, so they were forced to keep the public away and wait for the gasoline to burn out.
Firefighters capped the pipeline at cutoff valves in Concord and Alamo, and the inferno receded about 90 minutes later, said Steve Maiero, battalion chief of the Contra Costa Fire Protection District.
They discovered two bodies in or near the hole, Maiero said.
The jet fuel line, owned by Kinder Morgan Energy Partners of Houston, was marked on maps that construction workers were using, according to Eugene Braithwaite, director of operations for the company's northern region.
Kinder Morgan is under investigation in a separate incident in which 85, 000 gallons of fuel spilled from one of its pipelines into the Suisun Marsh last April.
Braithwaite said as soon as it was safe, Kinder Morgan would assess how to clean up the Walnut Creek pipe break, possibly using vacuum pumps to remove any residual fuel.
A few Doris Avenue residents spent the night with friends or in hotels with help from theRed Cross. Among them were Enos and Leto Chabot, who lost the back half of their two-story home at 2053 Doris Ave. The fireball rose 90 feet from the construction pit, up a concrete wall and burned their entire backyard, melting the windows on their back wall.
The couple were having lunch at the Hick'ry Pit restaurant nearby when they heard the boom, and they returned home to find their neighbors evacuated to a street corner a few blocks away.
"The important thing is we're OK," said Leto Chabot. "We have insurance, but this will take months to get fixed."
At Las Lomas High, Sarah Jones, 16, said she was in her physics class when she heard what she thought was someone dropping something on the roof.
Students were instructed over the loudspeaker to stay inside, then told to evacuate to Civic Park. They could see the plume of black smoke from the parking lot.
"I don't think we were so much scared as confused," Jones said. "Because nobody told us what was going on."
The evacuation went smoothly, however, because nearly all the students had cell phones and could call their parents to come get them. Only about 50 of the school's 1,700 students made it to Civic Park, and the rest went to downtown coffee shops and juice bars to wait for their parents.
As darkness fell, authorities used a robot to shoot close-up photographs of the accident scene.

Ex-cop Tanabe convicted in 'dirty DUI' scandal

The reason I know so much about this story is I went to the FBI in 2004 and convinced them FBI that my attackers had returned from the 1980's and that these attacks were related to events connected to the 2001 Murder of my former customer Dr. Fang in 2000 but. 

As the events near CNET unraveled I began to piece together events from 1989 the San Pablo National Guard Armory robbery where 850 M-16's and military explosives were taken.   But in my efforts to discover details I realized that perhaps a SAM missile was taken.  

With conjecture it could lead to the TWA Flight 800 crash and the PG&E San Bruno Fire which leads to another case in 1979 that the Pleasant Hill Police don't want to talk about.  

There were a series of incidents on a farm known locally the Cabbage Patch Farm which leads to my developing article about the "The Cabbage Patch Murders" which is long forgotten case but matches slew of fires spanning 30 years. 

Given the width and breadth of the interconnected agencies known as CNET, SWAT and the BOMB SQUAD I've reached a personal conclusion that could be hard to argue away.  

Meet my former Neighbor Stephen Tanabe a former Danville Officer who knows Gary Collins who died within months of being linked to CNET with former Chief of Police Joel Bryden.  

The events I'm writing about will be easier to understand by visiting my research site at where I'm using Business Intellingence Tools to present this story via Google Earth, Timeline Tools and supporting information that would be considered a mix of document management (ECM) Content Management Systems (CMS) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and besides no one will hire me which becuase of all the havoc CNET heaped on my life.  

Ex-cop Tanabe convicted in 'dirty DUI' scandal

Updated 11:16 pm, Tuesday, September 3, 2013
  A former Contra Costa County deputy sheriff was convicted Tuesday on charges that he accepted a pistol from a private investigator in exchange for arresting two men who the investigator had baited into driving drunk in elaborate stings known as "dirty DUIs."
However, jurors acquitted the former officer of a charge stemming from one of the private investigator's most startling claims - that the ex-deputy also accepted cocaine to facilitate a third drunken driving arrest.
Stephen Tanabe, 50, of Alamo, appeared dejected after the jury in U.S. District Court in San Francisco delivered a verdict that marks one of the final chapters in a lurid saga that has now resulted in the conviction of five former Bay Area law enforcement officers.
Two and a half years after his arrest, Tanabe, a former Danville patrol officer, turned to his family in the front row of the gallery, exhaled hard, and shook his head. He was convicted on one count of conspiracy, two counts of extortion and three counts of wire fraud, and will be sentenced in December.
Tanabe's involvement in the unseemly world of former investigator Christopher Butler, 52, began in the mid-1990s, when both men were officers for the Antioch police force.
Tim Pori, Tanabe's attorney, maintained that Butler - the government's star witness, who testified in exchange for leniency in his own case - was a master manipulator who made a living framing people. He deemed Butler a "sociopathic narcissist" who made Tanabe his latest mark.
"This was another 'designed coincidence,' " Pori said outside court, employing a term coined by the private investigator, "where Butler took the available evidence and framed Tanabe."
In closing arguments, Assistant U.S. Attorney Hartley West portrayed Tanabe as an officer who'd sold his badge when he allegedly accepted an eighth of an ounce of cocaine and a Glock pistol from Butler to ensure the drunken driving arrests.
"His integrity was for sale," West told jurors. "And it was for sale for cheap."
Butler was the architect of "dirty DUIs," prearranged busts of men he had been hired to tarnish. Three targeted men who testified at Tanabe's trial - a Livermore winemaker, a Verizon executive, and a former software salesman - were in the midst of divorce or custody disputes with ex-wives who sought to gain an advantage.
The women, prosecutors said, paid Butler to design stings in which female "decoys" approached the men online or in bars. Or actors would pose as reporters, inviting the marks out for an "interview" over drinks.
In two stings involving Tanabe, Butler said, he arranged for his friend to park outside a Danville wine bar and arrest the victims on Butler's cue.
The sprawling scandal around Butler, which included allegations of drug dealing and prostitution, sparked an FBI corruption probe and led to the federal convictions of Bay Area police officers from four different agencies.
One defendant remains: Mary Nolan, a divorce attorney who, according to prosecutors, hired Butler to install listening devices inside the car of a client's ex-husband.
During his testimony at the Tanabe trial, Butler said he was hired by Nolan to conduct a "dirty DUI" sting on a Clayton man, who was arrested and convicted. Nolan has pleaded not guilty.

NTSB Accident reconstruction Scene Analysis

Walnut Creek CA: On October 23rd, the NTSB conducted their accident reconstruction as part of the investigation on how the BART Engineers were hit by a train on October 19th which was on the heels of the Asiana Flight 2014 Crash last summer.  The NTSB has flown out for the PG&E Fire, the Asiana and now a BART Engineer incident?  They're already working on the Branagh Crash, now the PG&E Plane Butte County I'm connected to three plane crashes on their plate as I know victims in crash, I knew BART officer killed, and I know that my attorney's brother in-law was killed on WB 24 in what I'm suspecting is a murder case as it's open like many others. 

Connections to accidents, BART and Racially driven cases. 

I've also known Supervisor Glover since 1983 when the Bynum (Tiny) Shooting tragic event connected us together and we were both young men.  His cousin was employed by cabinet shop and Tiny was his brother.  It was a bad day at the shop but we all knew it was a racially driven shooting.  

Gang Link in Alamo Attack / 2 ex-cons planned robbery -- homeowner, intruder shot dead

Gang Link in Alamo Attack / 2 ex-cons planned robbery -- homeowner, intruder shot dead

Published 4:00 am, Thursday, January 6, 2000

2000-01-06 04:00:00 PDT ALAMO -- Two gunmen behind a fatal botched robbery in an exclusive Alamo home were members of a Stockton street gang who carefully planned the invasion, police said yesterday.
But if the intruders were counting on little resistance, they got more than they expected when, carrying semiautomatic pistols, they burst into the home on Incline Green Lane shortly before 6 p.m. Tuesday. The home's owner, Kim Fang, an accomplished marksman, shot one robber dead and critically wounded another, police said.
Fang, 49, was wounded during the gunfight and died hours later at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, where he had worked for eight years as a plastic surgeon until his retirement in 1994.
The dead robber was identified last night as Mesa Kasem, 22, and his wounded accomplice as Soknoeum Nem, 21, both of Stockton.
Contra Costa County Sheriff's Capt. George Lawrence said the gunmen were convicted felons and members of the Asian Street Walkers gang. They were being investigated for similar crimes against Asians elsewhere in the Bay Area.
Nem is a parolee classified as a violent offender with convictions for assault, burglary and auto theft.
Kasem, who served prison time for shooting a woman in Stockton, was subsequently detained behind bars as a "lifer" by the Immigration and Naturalization Service because he was considered a violent criminal.
Kasem, however, successfully fought his INS detention and was released.
Last night, police served search warrants at the Stockton homes where Nem and Kasem lived, but investigators declined to say what, if anything, was seized from the properties.
Investigators disclosed yesterday that they found a blue Mazda that Nem and Kasem had rented in Stockton, parked a block away from the Fang home. Inside, they found a handwritten note with Kim Fang's name and address. The suspects had used their own names to rent the car, police said.
Investigators also were able to provide a clearer picture of how the robbery attempt went awry.
Nem and Kasem were probably after jewelry or cash in the home, Lawrence said. There were no statements or demands from the two men when they rushed the house, police said.
One of the suspects was attacked with a frying pan by Fang's wife, Winnie Fang, who answered their knock on the front door. Winnie Fang, an anesthesiologist, was shot once in the chest but was expected to be released last night from Stanford Medical Center.
Her brother, Richard Law, was in the living room and came to his sister's aid when he heard her screams, struggling with the suspects before he was ordered to the floor. A nanny, Melee Jung, was pistol-whipped by one intruder.
"I think they were fighting for their lives," Lawrence said.
It was not until Kim Fang, working in an upstairs office, heard the commotion and came downstairs that the shooting started, police said. Exactly who fired first was still being sorted out yesterday, but investigators said Kim Fang mortally wounded Kasem with rounds to the head, chest and leg.
Nem, who was tied up with telephone cords by the family and held for police, is in Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley in fair condition. He is under arrest but is heavily sedated and has not yet been interviewed by police. He is expected to be charged with murder and robbery.
The Fangs' two children, ages 10 and 13, were not hurt during the attack and ran to a neighbor's home for help, Lawrence said.
Court records said the surviving suspect's nickname is "Half Dead," and family members confirmed the unusual nickname, saying it stuck after Nem -- who lived as a young child in war-torn Cambodia -- survived when a bomb he was playing with exploded. The family moved to Connecticut in 1983 to escape the Khmer Rouge.
