CRIMINAL RACKETEERING EXPOSED THANKS TO RCW 42.56
Corrupt public officials like Lori Batiot are making criminals out of non-criminals and “We the people” must do every thing in our power to peacefully expose cockroaches who misuse their power to cover up their own wrongdoing regardless of the financial cost.
All too often, they are hiding inside public agencies. As such is the case of corrupt Duvall Washington police officer Lori Batiot.
Last month, King County Prosecutor’s released a statement stating that Duvall police officer Lori Batiot’s and Crystal Hill Pennington and John Pennington’s complaints based solely on issues of free speech, protected First Amendment activity were “unfounded.”
In March 2015, King County Judge Meyers “DENIED” Lori Batiot’s friends, Crystal Hill Pennington and John Pennington’s request to “restrain” the Gold Bar Reporters as a “prior restraint on free speech.”
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 inferring that Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block and her partner were wanted for “felony warrants” thus luring the Department of Justice Interpol ( DOJ) into their little RICo gang.
Cary Coblantz then illegally tracked Block and her partner coming from London Heathrow Airport to Seattle as well las Block’s private investigator and his wife.
All over assisting a corrupt police officer who has a long history of conduct hardly becoming of any person let alone a police officer.
Gold Bar Reporters is calling for King County’s Internal Affairs Unit to fire Cary Coblantz and informed the City of Duvall that Lori Batiot will be sued under RICO and for 42 USC 1983 violations.
Late last week, the City of Duvall released Lori Batiot’s Washington State Patrol record documenting that she was drunk at the time of a car accident; she blew a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .129 (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.
According to Batiot’s police report, she was using valium 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).
This police report is also at least the 3rd public record where Batiot accuses a person of “stalking.” Seems like any time someone starts to uncover her crimes, she alleges “stalking.”
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). She is “unfit” for public duty.
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 Ibershoff 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 ( which is alleged in a RICO suit to amount to extortion), 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 Seattle Times about Anne Laughlin not being a resident of Duvall thus she had to resign. What the Times did not report was that John E. Pennington had just been charged with criminal assault of 3rd trimester pregnant woman and that was the reason Anne fled from Duvall ( temporarily seeking battered women’s shelter).

Some of these issues we’ve researched and written about in this article was also exposed in “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 police report 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. Popping pills while drunk driving at minimum should speak for itself.
Before Lori Batiot managed to obtain a job as a police officer, her work experience was that of a coffee Barista! The City of Duvall’s employee file of Lori Batiot also supports that she has no college degree and was fired from the City of Ferndale and City of Brier.
Must be something in the coffee out there in Bellingham or someone connected to the coffee Barista stands that helped Lori Batiot obtain jobs she is unfit for.
We feel that her days as a coffee Barista and her affair ( as stated in her DUI arrest record) lead to her obtaining a job with the City of Ferndale. A job she was unqualified for but managed to obtain.
We have ample evidence to state that Lori Batiot was hired by the City of Duvall as a political favor to Snohomish County’s number one welfare recipient John E. Pennington.
John Pennington often brags that he set up little RICO members inside government agencies to protect him from being charged with crimes. Police reports from the City of Duvall confirms that Lori Batiot ran criminal obstruction for John Pennington anytime someone filed a criminal complaint against him.
Thus, the Gold Bar Reporters add one more cockroach to our list of public officials who need a hell of a lot of sunshine. As such, we will continue to post records relating to Lori Batiot’s misconduct so long as she’s a public official.
As former Washington State attorney general Rob McKenna nicely argued in Referendum 71, all public officers are subject to public scrutiny, or as Justice Scalia said “the fact is that running a democracy takes a certain amount of civic courage. And the First Amendment does not protect you from criticism or even nasty phone calls when you exercise your political rights to legislate, or to take part in the legislative process.”
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.
As 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.
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. The City of Duvall not only hired uneducated cops but also corrupt cops convicted of DUI who have been fired from two other City’s for misconduct.
For those of you who have past crmininal convictions, enjoy filing false reports, enjoy having extramarital affairs with city residents, and no college degree, You should inquire within the City of Duvall at http://www.duvallwa.gov/jobs.aspx.
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.
