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 Roma Bhatia Case

Nov 12 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 Gary Vinson Collins

Nov 12 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.








Attack The Attorney

Nov 1 2005
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 Racketeering Charges







Hobbs Act

Nov 11 2011

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.

SUICIDE: A PROBLEM IN CONTRA COSTA?

Our Rate Is Higher Than the State's 
Suicide Prevention
Gerold Loenicker, Rhonda James, and Contra Costa Mental Health Director Steven Grolnic-McClurg present the Suicide Strategic Plan to Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors

A two-year effort to develop better policy for addressing suicide in Contra Costa County culminated with the release of the Suicide Prevention Strategic Plan this month. The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the plan September 10th, during National Suicide Prevention Week. Gerold Loenicker, Prevention and Early Intervention Program Supervisor, addressed  the board and said,  "In many cases, suicide may be preventable if primary care providers effectively screen individuals who are at risk, on a routine basis, and provide links to the right resources."

Loenicker co-chaired the Suicide Prevention Committee with Contra Costa Crisis Center director Rhonda James. The committee analyzed data provided by the Coroner's Office to identify at-risk populations, common methods of suicide, and how to improve delivery of crisis-support and prevention services. Recommendations in the plan include increasing coordination between county systems and community service providers to minimize obstacles to receiving help, improving protocols for assessment, triage and warm hand-offs of at-risk people, and training about warning signs and effective prevention practices for healthcare providers and community "gatekeepers" such as teachers and the clergy. The committee includes Behavioral Health Services, Contra Costa Regional Medical Center & Health Centers, Contra Costa Crisis Center, John Muir Health, Kaiser Permanente, and other community based organizations, health care providers, and public agencies.Funding for this plan was provided through the Mental Health Services Act. Contra Costa's suicide rate is 10.9 per 100,000 in population, higher than the state average of 10.3 per 100,000.

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. —

The driver of a bus carrying nine special need passengers may have been at fault for an accident that injured two in Walnut Creek this morning, police reported today.
 The small bus crashed into a highway support pillar on Lilac Drive, just west of South Main Street around 9 a.m., according to Walnut Creek police.
The driver and one passenger were seriously injured and taken to John Muir Hospital, where they are reportedly in stable condition, police said.
Other passengers suffered minor injuries and were treated and released from two other hospitals, police said.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation but preliminary findings indicate that driver error may have played a role, according to police.
Lilac Drive was shut down for about two hours while Caltrans inspected the highway support pillar and crews cleared the scene.

Walnut Creek CA: This school bus accident involved my next door neighbor Chad Cordon who is now an adult.  Based on what I've heard was for no apparent reason why the driver hit the wall or pillar. 


A quick overview of how I cataloged incidents near the scenes of many crimes. 


  • First Lilac Drive at 680 is very wide - hitting a column not likely
  • Bennett (me) was arrested about at Lilac and Lancaster (setup) 
    • This event involves Hillside Covenant Church 
    • Keith Lynds - Youth director hacked my laptop with PG&E data so sensitive it's good enough to commit the biggest terrorism act in the country.  
    • Bob Britz: Listed on separate police reports 
    • Members of Hillside Covenant Church
  • Tamara Moats was murdered just down the road at Clifton and Lancaster
  • I alleged I was setup by members of Hillside Covenant Church 
  • Nearby two jumped to their death at Kaiser
  • Five or more homeless have been hit by cars,  
  • Anthony Banta was killed in Bizarre shooting on Creekside drive near the 2001 Malotov cocktail thrown most likely delivered from Iron Horse Trail
  • It's near an Elementary School 
  • Near the bizarre Youngstrom Shooting up on 680
  • Near my 2004 Arson Fire where my truck was parked next to Mormon Family in Danville
  • Near enough to the Hillgrade Valve Pipe Bomb
  • My old neighborhood fire statistics is pathetic
  • This accident is close the date I've alleged my sons and I were targeted on 680 at 580 - we watched the other driver careen over our bow then into the median at 90 mph - my sons were screaming as the drive was killed.  
  • In 2007 the husband of a friend commits suicide on Vasco Road and he knew Tanabe, Wielsch, Butler, Lombardi, Craig Wilson, Eric Nunn, SF Officer Jason Nunn and Tanabe knows the Greenan's and Branagh's
  • Many also know Butler who knows Benny Chetcuti Jr. (ChetcutiVille?) who grew near the San Bruno Fire and knows the officer convicted near my Danville Residence where Chris Butler appeared after the now deceased Building Inspector Attacked and Nearly killed next door to the Mormon who knows the Christiansen clan from Danville who knows the Schereers and knows the person holding a ceremonial sword who also is shown with pictures that he was also on Las Vegas NV - all of that is critical to Scherer Murder Timeline.

Cameo Acres or Burnville? An analysis of fires near my former residence

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

Danville CA:  In review of my old neighborhood a disturbing suite of fires was occurring all around me, my sons and my life but right under my nose.  In 2004 my truck was rigged to burn me alive but when I started fact checking fires near me I discovered that this LITTLE neighborhood suffered quite a large number of fires. If there is an arsonist he lives in this neighborhood.  



191 Plaza Circle in Danville


SELF SERVICE ARSONIST
You're welcome to search for yourself but this one lead started me thinking on whether or not they were arsons vs. random fires.  The fire at 161 Plaza Circle had children roughly the same ages as my sons.  The family appears to have come unraveled and divorced which means they didn't attend church.

The unique part here is the structire to west burned in 2003 and I was living there when that one occurred but there was another one in 1980s that killed a father, another across the street, and apparently a few more but a conversation with a former Danville Real Estate agents suggested that San Ramon Fireman were stealing property as she alleged they stole a 25K diamond ring, and I alleged they stole my coin collection in 2004 during one of their tactical maneuvers that Chris Butler ran on me.  

 In 2010 when I fled the area from retired SFPD Lt. David Oberhoffer leaving behind over 50,000 in software licenses, over $500,000 in losses related to development, and 50K in systems.  

The CNET incidents play heavily on what I've gone through but they are in Federal Prison - their big mistake selling Crack Back To The Streets - The Business Model 

Read this open investigation on Marciel Road with San Ramon Fire.  They say as 09/2013 this investigation is still open and I'd say what about my 2004 arson fire?  

The balance of this will be found as below:
