Former Director of Snohomish County who killed 43 Oso residents in Oso mudslides CAUGHT RCW 42.56 ( Public Records)
UPDATE: MORE PUBLIC RECORDS LINKING SNOHOMISH COUNTY’S FORMER DIRECTOR JOHN E. PENNINGTON TO ILLEGAL TRACKING OF US CITIZENS OVERSEAS IN VIOLATION OF 4TH AMENDMENT TO US CONSTITUTION, 1983 AND RICO SUIT COMING
Good news for First Amendment defenders in Washington State. King County Prosecutor’s just released a statement stating that Duvall police officer Lori Batiot’s criminal complaint was “unfounded.” In addition, 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, and a police officer from the City of Duvall.
A RICO suit has been filed noting the City of Duvall’s municipal law firm of Kenyon Disend for Racketeering. According to Redmond Districts Court records, Sandra Sullivan (Meadowcraft) was employed by Kenyon Disend when she was assigned to prosecute political appointee John E. Pennington for kicking and punching Anne Laughlin during her 3rd trimester and just three weeks before delivery of her daughter. Instead of Sandra Sullivan prosecuting violent Pennington, she quashed criminal assault charges from 2008-2009 against him. ( Snohomish County pay stubs document paid administrative leave since Oso).
I spoke to attorney Sullivan seeking comment regarding her lack of objecting to John Pennington’s template motion to dismiss in May 2009. Sandra Sullivan and I spoke for sometime, and as soon as she realized that we were onto her predicate acts in violation of RICO, she hung up.

Further Gold Bar public records confirm that Crystal Hill Pennington was caught in the unlawful practice of law (on behalf of DEM employee Rick Kamerrer who gave audio statements to us) without a license, costing Pennington and Kammerer’s ex-wives over $150,000.00.
An insider from Mark Weiss’s office as well as attorney Ken Berger confirmed that they too fired Crystal Hill Pennington for the unauthorized practice of law when she worked for them.
According to a Snohomish County Prosecutor insider leak ” in exchange for political favors inside the Courtroom.”

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.
Well here it is. Lori Batiot ( aka Harris and Hoffer) has a past criminal conviction for DUI, Whatcom County Washington, 2002. All this while she was a sitting police officer for the City of Brier. She served 5 years probation on a suspended sentence and attended Alcoholics Anonymous.

Most agencies perform thorough background checks on applicants serving in positions of authority because persons with something to hide and/or financial troubles are more subsustiable to bribes. Question we’re hoping to find out is whether the City of Duvall ran a background check prior to hiring.

I just cannot imagine how Batiot managed to get a job with the City Brier or with the City of Duvall with a past DUI pending for five years while she was a police officer.
Ms. Batiot’s court records are extensive, from Yakima, Skagit, Snohomish to Whatcom Counties. Bigger question for Duvall residents should be how the hell did Batiot get her job.
In 1998, Batiot was a police officer for the City of Ferndale. 2001 to 2005, she worked at Seattle Tacoma International Airport ( connection to Port of Seattle ) as a security guard.
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.
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 illegal under 42 USC 1983) tactics attempting to silence the messenger.
The City of Brier, and its insurance carrier American Association of Washington Cities ( AWC), eventually decided to pay a nuisance claim (42K, plus 12K) hoping Batiot would move on; and she did to the City of Duvall.
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.
Sadly, the Port of Seattle released public emails involving gross domestic spying and civil rights violations committed against me, and it now extends to the King County Sheriff’s Office, specifically an officer named Cory Coblantz. Because Cory Coblantz will be named as a defendant in a 42 USC 1983 complaint to be filed soon for causing a TSA London security officer to physically rape me, I will not elaborate just yet.
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.
News flash Officer Coblantz:
Yesterday, Our Supreme Court reinforced Our First Amendment rights to question police officers, including using abusive language.
Contrary to offensive statements Port of Seattle Officer Gilleblo 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.
