Lori Batiot, corrupt Duvall Washington cop
King County Prosecutor’s released a statement stating that Duvall police officer Lori Batiot’s criminal complaint ( solely on issues of free speech, protected First Amendment activity) were “unfounded.”
In June 2015, King County releases public records from Sheriff’s Officer documenting gross civil rights violations, domestic spying, and it involves the Port of Seattle, US Customs agent Curtis Chen, King County Sheriff’s Officer Cary Coblantz, , and a police officer from the City of Duvall named Lori Batiot.
Public emails released from King County confirms that King County Sheriff’s Officer Cary Coblantz issued a false statement that Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block and her partner were wanted for “felony warrants” filing his false statement with the Department of Justice Interpol ( DOJ). Cary Coblantz then illegally tracked Block and her partner coming from London Heathrow Airport to Seattle.
All over assisting a corrupt police officer who has a long history of conduct hardly becoming of any person let alone a police officer.
The City of Duvall just released Lori Batiot’s Washington State Patrol record documenting that she was drunk at the time of a car accident; she blew a BAC .127 (between 6- 7 drinks), lied to Whatcom County Sheriff’s Officer, and she was on mental health pills Zoloft and Valium at the same time she was driving drunk.
Pages from File 4 Redactions applied(1)-2 click to the left to see a copy of Lori Batiot’s police report verifying everything we’ve written about her conduct being ” unbecoming” of any police officer. Better question those of us involved in exposing corrupt public officers like Lori Batiot is whether she had a legally issued prescription for the anti-depressant and valium’s she was using at the time she was arrested for DUI.
The Valium Batiot claims she was using to “relax” herself because of a dentist appointment. We’re not sure about our readers but we don’t know too many dentists who are open at 0145 am ( time of Batiot’s arrest).
But one thing is clear from the above public record, Lori Batiot has some real serious mental health issues, as this police report is the third document that the Gold Bar Reporters have been able to obtain documenting anytime she gets caught committing a crime, she alleges that people are “stalking” her.
In the above record, it’s clear just based on Batiot’s BaC at the time of the her DUI arrest, she lied about the amount of alcohol she had just before driving and causing a major accident along I-5 ( Bellingham).
Our readers should note that Lori Batiot managed to get hired as a police officer from the City of Duvall, after being fired for misconduct from the City of Ferndale and from the City of Brier. We have ample reason to believe that Lori Batiot managed to get hired in Duvall because that’s where her very very very good friend John E. Pennington lives.
Further public records from Duvall documents that John E. Pennington’s friend and Mayor Will Ibershoof hired Lori Batiot. Emails from John Pennington’s divorce files confirms that Mayor Ibershoff assisted John Pennington in removing his wife Anne as a duly elected council member, after she fled Duvall for her life when John Pennington kicked and punched her just three weeks before the delivery of her daughter.
John Pennington, a source inside Snohomish County, used by several newspapers, managed to get news story in the Times about Anne Laughlin not being a resident of Duvall thus she had to resign. What the Seattle Times did not report was that Pennington had just been charged with criminal assault of 3rd trimmest pregnant woman and that was the reason Anne fled from Duvall ( temporarily seeking batter women’s shelter).

Some of these issues we’ve researched and written about in the below article “Kenyon Disend’s Dirty Bag of Secrets”
Kenyon Disend and all of its lawyers were contacted for comment but refused comment.
As promised, we would update our readers as to why and how a police officer in Duvall Washington would go out of her way to violate the civil rights of a reporter simply for blowing the whistle on her conduct. Conduct we believe is unbecoming of any public official and amounts to Racketeering.

The Bellingham DUI conviction confirms our worst fears; the City of Duvall knew about Lori Batiot’s criminal history before she was hired, and we believe that this makes her unfit for public service.
We have ample evidence to state that Lori Batiot was hired as a political favor to Snohomish County’s number one welfare recipient John E;. Pennington. John Pennington often bragged that he set up little RICO members inside government agencies to protect him from being charged with crimes. Police reports from Batiot confirm that she ran criminal obstruction for John Pennington anytime someone filed a criminal complaint against him.
However, before she managed to obtain a job as a police officer without a college degree, her work experience was that of a coffee Barista!
In 2001, while she served as a police officer, Court records from Whatcom document that the police forcibly removed her from an apartment.
In 2002, Skagit County court records document that while she was a sitting police officer with the City of Brier she rear ended a man causing permanent physical injury, and then when she was sued, she refused to comply with basic discovery requests causing a motion to compel her testimony.
The man Batiot caused permanent physical injury to had no idea Ms. Batiot was a cop. According to a recent declaration Batiot filed with the Court, she has been for 17 years. True.
From court records its unclear whether she was drunk, but certainly a person that refuses to answer discovery requests, and refuses to submit to a Breathalyzer, leaves us to believe that something isn’t kosher in Duvall city.
From her past criminal DUI conviction from Bellingham, I feel comfortable reporting that Batiot was in fact drunk and under the influence at the time she caused permanent physical injury to another human.
In 2006, Snohomish County records document that she sued the City of Brier after another police officer, Murphy, started complaining that Batiot should not be serving as a police officer because she plead to drunk driving. As a result, she alleged sex discrimination. Do you see the connection, because we do not.
Public records from the City of Brier confirm that Batiot also requested a large amount of public records on her foes, including Officer Murphy, the man she alleged was sexually discriminating against her.
Batiot conducted background checks on Murphy with his former employer, the City of Dupont.
While at the City of Brier, Batiot was driving a police car with a pending DUI. Yes, our readers are reading this correctly! We’re not sure about our readers, but I do not believe that having a DUI conviction qualifies a person to serve as a police officer.
But I guess in the City of Duvall it does because they hired her.
In 2006, Batiot files a suit against the City of Brier, alleging guess what? Stalking and harassment by an Officer Murphy. Sound familiar? Well it should, at least to Gold Bar Reporter Block it does.
Pages from 1620_001 click to the left to view Batiot’s statements that people are stalking and harassing her when she gets exposed for misusing City of Brier police car. Almost exactly the same allegations she recently made against the Gold Bar Reporter.
Court records retrieved from the City of Brier look eerily similar to recent restraining order papers Batiot filed in retaliation against Gold Bar Reporter Block. In fact, Batiot uses almost identical phrases in her City of Brier discovery responses as she did in recent Shoreline District Court filings.
After reviewing the City of Brier public records, based on the totality of the evidence, we believe that anyone who speaks the truth about Lori Batiot suffers the wrath of her retaliatory ( and according to my counsel, illegal under 42 USC 1983) tactics attempting to silence the messenger.
Now, most of the time I could care less about a person’s past, but once they conspire with criminals like Crystal Hill Pennington (bank fraud) and John Pennington ( prime suspect in a child rape case), I cannot turn a blind eye to corruption, especially when that person holds a position of authority. Corruption harms all of us.
These are matters of public concern that we the public have an absolute right to know!
Whether it’s a police officer, public official, politician, or a former Mayor of Gold Bar who is responsible for over $200,000 missing from Gold Bar’s water fund, to allow a person in a position of power to retaliate against a well respected news source would mean that I condone such criminal behavior from our public officials. Simply put, I do not and will not.
Citizens are the checks and balances to a clean government. It’s our responsibly to expose corrupt public officials regardless of the personal cost to one’s self. Justice has no borders, has no price tag. Corruption harms all of us and must be exposed regardless of the personal cost to one’s self.
Thomas Jefferson said ” the highest form of patriotism is dissent.” This doesn’t mean that I believe our entire system is corrupt. I do not.
I’m an idealist who believes that our courts are simply one pronge to a healthy democracy. But lately they are failing to uphold the laws instead are hiding public officials crimes. So it’s up to “we the people” to be the guarders of public agency employees we created and who are paid with the public’s trust. It’s we the people that must protect the First Amendment from all invaders. Police officers are no exception, and yesterday, the Washington State Supreme Court agreed with us. Requesting access to public records, especially emails, is our statutory right.
Corrupt public officials are making criminals out of non-criminals and We must do every thing in our power to peacefully expose the cockroaches whereever they hide. All too often, they are hiding inside public agencies.
Citizens can learn a lot about public officlas by requesting access to their emails. I use the Public Records Act to inform the public. It’s Washingtoians best tool to expose the cockroaches where they roam.
I have seen corruption in every branch of government in this state, but I’ve also seen justice in every branch. I have traveled extensively throughout our World, but there is no other place on this planet that I cherish more than America. Most of all, I cherish the First Amendment more than any other tangible item on this planet.
As for Curtis Chen, the U.S. Customs officer that illegally assisted in the tracking, false imprisonment, illegal search and seizure, and who assisted in the rape of a US citizen on behalf of a dirty cop. Chen will also be named as defendant citing 42 USC 1983. Coming very soon.
After reviewing some of King County Detective Coblantz’s emails, I believe we unearthed another dirty cop who spit on basic constitutional principles that I love more than life itself. Thus, I cannot turn a blind eye, especially after Coblantz caused an honest taxpaying citizen to be physically raped for a dirty cop from Duvall.
To turn a blind eye when a wrong has been committed against any person for simply exercising First Amendment rights is not something that I can do.
One must wonder whether or not police departments are hiring officers with a high school diploma or high school dropouts. Emails document that Cary Coblantz has soiled the badge by spitting on basic constitutional principles taught in every 5th grade American civics class, and presumably in a Police Civil Liability class.
Contrary to offensive statements Coblantz put inside public records (emails), I am not anti-government, just anti-corruption. Sir, words that you find abusive, may not be abusive to me. After all, I was raised by two New Yorkers who didn’t believe in censorship. Four letter words were the best way for our parents to let us know when they were upset. It worked well.
I feel fortunate to have been raised in a “free speech” zone, and most of all I am thankful to Thomas Jefferson for bringing the First Amendment back with him from Europe.
