Police Chief Jeff Gilbert demands retraction and apology

Response to this was "See you in court." and I'm looking forward to it. That is, if Jeff hasn't been arrested by then! Better not use Pamela Walsma as your attorney, she represents the Town, not you personally Jeff. Wait, use her if you want, I could beat her in court in pro se....


"Over the past several months you both have engaged in a campaign to discredit and damage the reputation of myself, Jeff Gilbert, Chief of Police for the Quartzsite Police Department, members of the Quartzsite Police Department, my spouse Sondra Gilbert and to cause disruption and discredit to the lawful business of the Quartzsite Police Department by posting libelous, slanderous, false statements and negative comments on your Internet Blog, www.quartzsitearizona.blogspot.com.
In addition, you have posted my personal addresses along with photos of my home which is a violation of ARS 13-2401.A. “Personal information on the World Wide Web”; a class 5 felony. Repeated request and demands to the “blogger” administrator to remove this information have been ignored. Your intentional and deliberate dissemination of my personal information to include my addresses and photo of my home poses an imminent and serious threat to my safety and my immediate family’s safety due to my position as Chief of Police and as a police officer, and you have personal and common knowledge of persons who may wish to due harm to me and or my family.    
This letter is a demand that you take down all blog entries regarding Jeff Gilbert, Chief of Police, Sondra Gilbert, and the Quartzsite Police Department and its members, together with the entire thread of comments. I further demand that you cease and desist from any further attempts to injure, defame, discredit and to interfere with the effective lawful actions of the Quartzsite Police Department.  
The libellous, slanderous and false information on your Internet Blog were published deliberately, maliciously, and wilfully with the intent to cause damage to the character, profession, reputation and career of myself, Jeff Gilbert, Chief of Police, spouse Sondra Gilbert, the Quartzsite Police Department and it’s members.
I demand that you immediately cease and desist all such activities, or I will take the appropriate civil and criminal legal steps to protect my rights, the rights of Sondra Gilbert and the rights of the Quartzsite Police Department including, without limitation, filing claims for libel, slander, defamation and to pursue criminal prosecution for harassment.
Your blog postings and conduct also constitute tortuous interference with the lawful business of the Quartzsite Police Department by attempting to discredit myself, as the Chief of Police along with the members of the Department. As such, they are actionable and expose you to the imposition of compensatory as well as punitive damages, as well as criminal harassment actions.
In consequence therefore, I demand an immediate retraction and public apology to be published in the same manner the defamatory publication was made within 3 days of your receipt of this letter.
It is apparent that you do not agree with me personally or professionally, or with the lawful actions of the Quartzsite Police Department. That, however, does not entitle you to publish defamatory, false, libelous and slanderous statements in an attempt to discredit myself, my spouse, members of the Quartzsite Police Department and to publish this information with the intent to interrupt and interfere with the lawful actions of the Department, and to place my family and myself in immediate danger by publishing my personal information."

    Does anyone need more proof of IMHO the incompetence and malfeasance of Chief Jeff Gilbert! Don’t know about you, but this is the last guy with a badge and gun I want protecting me. He is what most Defense Attorneys would label as a “Dream Come True.” Let’s run down his “Whining List” shall we?

    Chief Jeff Gilbert is the creator of his present lack of reputation by his own hands. Chief Jeff Gilbert must have a short memory and that will be his undoing. I for one can’t respect ANY Chief of Police that would refuse to take a report (especially a Written Police Report) of an alleged (remember that one can commit a criminal act but it is up to the jury to decide guilt) “Statutory Rape of a Child” by one of his own QPD Officers and then dismiss it as a simple “Personnel Matter” and NOT the unlawful rape of a child by one of his LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS! Please keep in mind that this isn’t the 1st time that a QPO has been accused (and now sits in a Arizona State Prison) for child rape!

    Has Chief Jeff Gilbert forgotten just how a proper police department works? Failure to respond to calls, the filing of proper Written Police Reports, threats and intimidation that violate Arizona Laws, Federal Laws, with Constitutional and Civil Rights violations thrown in too! I have personally observed and been witness to such actions by his QPD Officers and Chief Gilbert himself. Chief Jeff Gilbert, have you forgotten that not only will I testify but many of the residents of Quartzsite and Winter Snowbirds will be honored to tell the truth under oath in a Court of Law against YOU!

    As far as your complaint about showing photos of your residents in Quartzsite, did you forget to read the article questioning such? One must live in a building, trailer, or tent to be a resident Chief Jeff Gilbert and that article was questioning your legal residency and legal right to vote in Quartzsite Elections. Bring on your lawsuit and you will be placed under oath along with your wife, realtor friend, and property owner and forced to maybe tell the truth for the fist time in your life. Do you really want the truth to come to light as to how you obtained that property while “Under Color of Law”?

  5. Part 2of2

    Just what gives you the right to violate anyone’s Constitutional Right to “Free Speech,” “The Press,” “The Right of the People Peaceably to Assemble,” “Petition the Government for a redress of Grievances,” or the citizens of Quartzsite to question your actions that many find to be blatant violations of Arizona State Laws, Federal Laws, and Constitutional & Civil Rights granted by the “Constitution of the United States of America” and the “Bill of Rights”! You can find these in the 1st Amendment of the “Constitution of the United States of America”!

    In any legal action (Civil & Criminal) didn’t your legal council tell you that you would be placed under oath and subject to “Felony Perjury Charges” when you lie or miss state facts and enter false evidence? Further, under “Discover” another “Supreme Court Ruling” that you CAN’T get away from, the Defendants’ Attorneys will be crawling up your ass with a searchlight until they certify that you are clean! At present your actions or should I point out your lack of actions in many serious criminal and civil matters make you a VERY UN-CREDIBLE WITNESS!

    When the time comes you will have to shake in your witness chair wondering just who is in the dark shadows that will come forward to prove your perjuries testimony that holds a “Get Out Of Jail Free Card” because they turned State/Federal witness! From what I have heard, you don’t have many friends when it comes to this subject. BTW IMHO, if I had to identify your “Ghost Writer” here, I would say that it sounds more like Town Manager Alex Taft and not you!

    In closing, your time would be better spent correcting, mending fences, and making amends with the people that you have wronged, then walk into the Federal Attorney Generals Office in either L.A. or Phoenix and ask to be placed into the “Federal Witness Protection Program” and come clean. Let’s face facts here, it’s better than a 6’x8’ room with a view!

  6. LMAO! Chief Gilbert, ever think what a jury of mothers and fathers would think when they hear you crying about someone hurting your feelings and reputation after hearing the father telling his side of the story about you letting a child rapist walking free because he was one of your police officers. Bet they get a big laugh when you tell them it was a personnel issue and didn’t need a police investigation. What else have you put on a back burner or just shoved under the rug to protect your friends and employers?

    I can’t wait to see you under oath in court trying to slip that one through!

  9. Jeff Gilbert's first mistake here is that he thinks he knows me.

    His second mistake is that he may believe I post everything that I know about what he's done.

    His third mistake was blatantly lying in this letter. There has been no "repeated request and demands to the “blogger” administrator to remove" his alleged addresses. The point of that particular post was that nobody seems to know where he really lives, only where public records showed he was registered to vote.

    Testifying under oath, as DW points out could very well backfire on Jeff and possibly result in felony criminal charges against him and/or Sondra, for voting fraud, or numerous other hypothetical crimes. However, his testimony disclosing his actual residence would certainly tell everyone where to find him. Maybe he should file the claim against our Vice-Mayor/realtor for posting that photo to the world wide web where I easily discovered it.

    Gilbert's fourth mistake is in thinking that he would be sympathetic to a jury in any criminal or civil complaint he may be contemplating.

    His fifth mistake is claiming that anyone who has ever posted to this site has a problem with the "lawful actions of the Quartzsite Police Department". It's the unlawful actions that are generating debate.

    Hey Jeff, if you feel this blog is worthy of a civil claim, feel free to spend as much of your personal finances as you please pursuing that belief. But please don't bill the Town for your legal endeavors. I think you've already cost the Town enough.

    ReplyDelete
  10. LOL, bet Chief Gilbert is making points with this threat with his friends at the county level and town hall. LMAO! What is he going to do when they don’t answer his calls to speak up in his defense? Did this guy give any thought that when he calls on them their records and history can be placed into the light?

  11. A. R. S. § 13-2401. Personal information on the world wide web; exception; classification; definitions

    A. It is unlawful for a person to knowingly make available on the world wide web the personal information of a peace officer, justice, judge, commissioner, public defender or prosecutor if the dissemination of the personal information poses an imminent and serious threat to the peace officer's, justice's, judge's, commissioner's, public defender's or prosecutor's safety or the safety of that person's immediate family and the threat is reasonably apparent to the person making the information available on the world wide web to be serious and imminent.

    Sorry Jeff, I didn't make this information available, as it was already there.It obviously didn't pose a "serious and imminent threat" as the post you may be referring to has been online for about two months and not only are you and your family unharmed, but if you actually believed your own nonsense, then you would have objected to it when first posted. Funny thing is Jeff, I've never heard you deny my belief that you and your family don't live in that tiny trailer. Suddenly Jeff, you call it "my home", but I strongly suspect proving that statement would be difficult, if not impossible.

    Quartzsite is a small town. Your neighbors know where you live. Your fellow officers and Town employees know where you live. Most of the Town knows your vehicle, and would easily recognize it parked in the driveway of your "home".

    What have you done that has made you so paranoid Jeff? Why on earth would anyone want to cause you and/or your family "harm"? What are you hiding?

    I can't speak for others who comment on your actions, but I only seek to have you held legally accountable for any laws you may have violated, as that badge does not make you above the laws you are supposed to enforce.

    All you have accomplished with this "cease and desist" email is to give credibility to allegations that you threaten and target anyone who dares to criticize you. I think that's called "malicious prosecution". Now you cry like a little girl about your rights, and " the rights of Sondra Gilbert and the rights of the Quartzsite Police Department"? What about the rights of the people to receive equal treatment and equal protection?

    You don't seem to show any concern for the rights of another peace officer who was physically assaulted while in the performance of his duties right in front of you and a room full of witnesses. Or the rights of citizens who have been subject to warrant less search by your officers. Or the rights of a father trying to protect his child...

  12. Can anyone enlighten me? Now it has been said that Police Chief Jeff Gilbert has a college education, right, and didn’t the Town of Quartzsite pay his salary and expenses to attend the “Police Academy” at the FBI Academy in Quantico? Further, I’ve been told that he graduated at the top (I’m finding this harder and harder to believe with each passing day) of his class.

    With the FBI and Federal Mandated Constitution and Civil Rights Training one would think that Chief Jeff Gilbert would have taken the time and shared his knowledge and training material for the benefit of his officers in his command and control. However, we have seen just the opposite by several of his QPD Officers.

    We are left with the unanswered question, just who wrote his demand and why? Could this be a red herring because no one with that kind of education, training, and experience would have allowed himself to get this deep into the public opinion cesspool? Could this man have scammed us and if a good background investigation had been conducted we would have found that he was not qualified or experience for the job much less such a high paycheck. I can’t see where we have received the best bang for the buck here. Do you?

  16. Here is a good laugh. Just read an article where Sam Vederman said that his office can’t prosecute all the cases they have now because of a shortage of manpower. Don’t feel to safe yet Gilbert, you’re heading for the federal courts…

    ReplyDelete
  17. Did you ever give any thought to Chief Gilbert’s complaints may have merit? Just think, if you are under ABI, FBI, DEA, BATF, and IRS investigations you may find it hard to conduct your back street criminal activities. I have read that the FBI specializes in the Criminal Activities of small Town & City Governments along with their Police Departments. Nothing looks better to them when they clean house and prove to the people that the Constitution, Civil Rights, and the Law do matter!

    Now the big prize will be in the “Perk Walk”! We will have to guess who will be in full view of the news cameras and how many. Could we see members of our own Town Council, Town Employees and QPD Officers being led from a Town Meeting to face Federal Charges from our armchairs on the Evening National News? I would think with the old saying, “Women First,” we could see the Town Manager leading the parade…

  18. Since when did the QPD become a business? Which Chief Gilbert stated twice. Well that goes right along with the majority of the towns feelings that the QPD is out to search, destroy and make money and not out to serve and protect our community.

  24. Jeff if you are so worried about what people are sayin about you then maybe you should be on here answering questions rather than tryin to threaten people? Bubba gonna really like you in prison..

    ReplyDelete
  25. Sounds like we will be able to call him just Jeff Gilbert soon. This aside, my read on his (and I still don’t think he was the person that wrote it) demand reminds me of the 16 year old kid in Kalifornia that had taken an ax to his mother and father, turning them into kindling. Later he became upset when the court didn’t feel sorry for him because he claimed, “He was an orphan”!

    What Chief Jeff Gilbert must face now is mind-boggling. He and his Attorneys (hope he get a Public Defender) must consider the fact that the Feds will hold back a number of recordings (you know radio, phone taps, etc) and surveillance videos to show perjury as well as his prior knowledge of criminal activity. His friends and supporters will have to worry and ask, “Am I on any of those tapes”?

    We thought that with the large number of Police Officers on the QPD the radio traffic (other than their efforts on I-10) should have been more that what it was. But now it is even slimmer and yes where is this fearless leader of the QPD? As what most thought before, planning his revenge (lets not forget Mike) with the use of his Police Powers? IMHO, It is a sad day in the modern day of Law Enforcement when the law-abiding citizens of Quartzsite fear Chief Jeff Gilbert more than the drug runners and street criminals! What’s that, “Birds of a feather”…

  26. It is just amazing what can happen over that 3rd mug of coffee in the morning and the old mind kicks off the last remnants of sleep and allows you to see the light! Now if you look into the wording of the so-called demands of Chief Jeff Gilbert, (and I don’t think he wrote it) with a clear mind you can see that if he is behind this (or supports it) he or is it Alex Taft setting the stage for Chief Jeff Gilbert to claim a mental breakdown do to the stress of the job and seek a medical retirement (plus the hefty pension) and setting the corner stone for his defense against any criminal charges.

    With the medical coverage offered to Chief Jeff Gilbert and the bleeding heart liberals within the psychiatric community he should have no problem at the right price to find one that will support his claims. What is that old saying? “If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime”!

    I have been confronted with more and more reports of criminal activity that Chief Jeff Gilbert is alleged to be part of, have knowledge of, allow, or overlook. However, I will NOT post these reports until after all criminal investigations have been conducted as to allow a fair and proper investigation in the name of justice. I will tell you that it deeply disturbs me that the QPD and Chief Jeff Gilbert may have taken part in any of what I have been told. I feel that we all need to sit back and when called upon to testify, do so under the guidelines of the Legal System and supported by the Constitution of the United States of America. After all, are we not Law-Abiding Citizens?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I need some help here. When Chief Gilbert is convicted of any criminal activity can the town of Quartzsite be held libel for every criminal case that he was involved in? There can be no doubt that as soon as any convicted criminal finds out that Gilbert or any of his cops involved in his case was arrested or convicted is going to appeal their case as ask that it be thrown out and retributions too boot!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Where's Jeffy? Why and who is the new unmarked tan suv in town? Is Hitler, I mean jeffy on leave? Are we paying for this?

    ReplyDelete
  29. If the Council or Alex Taft is concerned in the least about legal liability, one would have thought that they would have put a stop to "Coffee with Cops" months ago. It's so easy to record his testimony there...the problem is that I don't belief for a minute that anyone except Mayor Foster has given it a second thought.

    ReplyDelete
  30. How many people does Jeffy have to roll over on to get placed in the witness program? After all he is said to be real high in the food chain here. Do you think that the cop he fired got back at Jeffy at the same time he gets out of the charges of raping a kid?

    ReplyDelete
  31. I thought that it is a crime to identify yourself as a cop when you are not, much less making a demand pretending to be a cop.

    ReplyDelete
  32. After re-reading Jeffy’s demands post I can now see why he would want you to removed everything. How can you scam another city when every time you put in his name in a search engine you can see him on you tube like an untrained cop much less the history he has made for himself here in Quartzsite? Jeffy, you called the tune and now it’s time to pay the piper!

    ReplyDelete
  33. While I do doubt Gilbert wrote it, it did come from his email address. Are you suggesting that someone else had access to his acct? Who knows? However, it seems like threat under color of law to me. He just keeps digging the hole deeper, doesn't he?

  36. Can Chief Jeff Gilbert explain why, after being served with a “Letter of Demand” (regarding a pending law suit for Police Harassment naming Chief Jeff Gilbert) why he parked in the shadows of Janet’s Kitchen for (reported by several people) over 2 hours spying on the complaint Jennifer Harris while at her residents?

    I was told that our new Mayor Ed Foster had to call Town Manager Alex Taft and order him from the area in fear that his actions of continual harassment could lead to further actions by Harris’s Attorneys and costing the Town of Quartzsite more money in settlements. Later it was stated to me that Chief Jeff Gilbert had threatened Mayor Ed Foster with arrest for calling him off.

    There is no doubt in my mind that Chief Jeff Gilbert will get his day in court. I just don’t think it will be the Court of Law that he expects. In time and thanks to this blog, people are coming forward with their personal experiences with Chief Jeff Gilbert and in time his true colors will bring out Federal Investigators to examine Chief Jeff Gilbert’s allege violations of Criminal, Civil Rights, and Constitutional Laws of both Arizona State and the U.S. Code.

    In reality, where else could Chief Jeff Gilbert find employment? I don’t know of any Police Officers that would want to work with a man that would allow the criminal assault of a Peace Officer in their presents and allow the assailant to just walk away freely! In such a dangerous profession, who could trust him to watch their backs?

    Amazing..how everyone can just write any kind of accusations on here..There is obviously only a few of you idiots writing on this blog. Michael Roth is the only one with the actual honor to state his real name because he has nothing to hide.He dislikes the chief and has no problem hiding it. You be a good citizen and you get treated like one.. There are no secret meeting or cover ups as you post here .You guys watch to much damn TV and are ignorant to what is really going on. Yes QPD is in a turmoil right now but what department isnt. Some of you say you can hange things in Quartzsite. Then I say bring it on. show yourself to this community and dont hide behind a blog and not come forward with the true facts. Yes many people read this blog because its a damn joke. You hate the Police department because they are actually out there doing there job. It's not like the good ol days where you can say I know so and so and they would escort you home. These guys are actually proud of what they do they might not have a good leader but you need to remember they all have families. And eventually they will still be there to protect your ass when you need it. Cause when it comes down to it they respond to that stupid barking dog call or that guy that just assaulted his wife or kids. No matter what they risk theirs to protect yours. So next time you need a cop think about what they do. Or if your one of those that hates them then call a drug addict, thief, or murderer to protect you and see how warm and fuzzy you feel after that..Rest assured the Quartzsite Police Department has the best this county has to offer whether you think so or not. To all the GOOD citizens of Quartzsite I salute you and my hat is off to you for supporting your hard working Officers and members of your community..

  38. Excuse me Mr. Gilbert, I’m sorry, that’s Chief Gilbert, can I call you Jeff, thanks I hate titles don’t you? You can just call me Colombo, it sounds better than Detective Colombo don’t you think? Well, I just have a few questions for you, I know your time is limited, what, oh yes, running a police department as such so I’ll try to keep it to just a few questions to clarify a few things. My wife has the same problems with her flowers.

    It must be embarrassing to have to read about yourself on the Internet and not be able to just go to a recall petition to see who doesn’t like you and all, so I was just wondering how would you build a case of slander so you would have something to, you know confuse the people trying to expose what they think are criminal acts on your part. You kind of had even me confused for a while, and I was kind of running around that tree a time or two for a while until, I’m not boring you am I? Is it hot in here, you seem to be kind of red faced, are you uncomfortable? So, it came to me, you do have some loyal officers on your department that are very good friends? Anyway, you could just have them spread a word here or there, I’m not confusing you, no, okay. Anyway, a misleading statement here, a false rumor there in just the right order and you would know where your leak is by what was said in the blogs about you, don’t you think Mr. Gilbert?

    I have to admit myself that I was impressed, but you wouldn’t do that, being a man of law, what, yes, you say a chief of police, oh. Then you would understand what the law is and wouldn’t break it because the sheriff could take a complaint and arrest you, what, he has ordered his officers not to answer any calls from your area, now I’ll have to admit that is ingenious on your part. Doesn’t that mean that you can do anything you want, even send out false rumors about yourself and then make other people have to pay you for the lies you put out there, but isn’t that un-ethical?

It's too bad that Jeff's officers have harassed them about the music. Yet another example of selective enforcement. Jeff has said publicly he is opposed to any objective standard like a decibel meter for noise complaints. So a commercial enterprise cannot engage in normal business on the weekends, but I'll bet if the Gilberts or the Fraustos wanted to host a barbecue and play music all night...their neighbors would be out of luck.

  46. Gream Reaper,
    I dislike the chief because he raised his right hand and swore to God to honor, protect and defend the Constitution and then he goes right on ignoring his oath...... along with other officers in this town. Your statement that if you are a good citizen you will be treated like one is a lie. I know lots of good citizens that have been bullied, badgered, ticketed and harassed by this department and town government. Remember Mark Skoglund and Dan Field? Well Jeff Gilbert was the muscle behind those two thugs. NO this P.D. is not following the law. The Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land. Any other law that violates the Constitution is null and void. This is in our Founders documents. Do we have a Constitution or not? Is Law Enforcement exempt from the Constitution? So what is the purpose of asking a cop (or councilman or judge, or an other bureaucrat) to defend the Constitution if they write tickets based on laws that violate the very thing they promised to defend? Q.P.D has broken more laws than I ever will, and this is because their boss teaches them bad habits. So Jeff and Q.P.D., the next time you piss off a patriot think maybe, just maybe they won't be as calm as I am. (I know you think I'm a hothead, you're just not used to men with testicles standing up to you. There are people with bigger balls than me willing to not give an inch of ground! Hell, Jennifer Harris has bigger balls than the Chief!) You think nothing bad will ever happen to you because you are a cop with a ten cent badge and a gun? Don't be too sure! Don't be too sure! Without your uniform you are NOTHING! A little man with a pot belly and no brains, living off of the taxes of the very people you screw with. As this economy gets worse and people get more desperate, remember that desperate people do desperate things. And as people start to lose it all, they simply lose it. Stop your bullying ways and teach your officers the proper role of law enforcement. Read Sheriff Macks book, Jeff. It might just save your life and/or the life of one of your officers. And then maybe we'll have a thriving community again!

  48. Grim Reaper,

    How fast you forget the targeting by Chief Jeff Gilbert and a select QPD Officers against the people that have signed the “Recall Petitions” against the Town Council. If anyone used their real names here just how safe do you think they would be now? Not a lick as I have spoken to several people that have been the brunt of such actions.

    I stood by stunned as did the other witnesses at one Town Hall meeting when we saw the Quartzsite Constable assaulted by former Mayor Wes Huntley RIGHT IN FRONT of Chief Jeff Gilbert and one of your so called protective QPD officers. Both refused to arrest Huntley for the assault and battery on a “Peace Officer” and just let him walk away. If they won’t protect one of their own just what makes you think they will protect you? I guess if you actively campaign for Wes Huntley and you protect his criminal assault and battery on a “Peace Officer,” (and yes all that saw this are willing to testify in a court of law against both Gilbert & Huntley) what other criminal acts of Wes Huntley are you willing to cover up or that he committed on a regular citizen of Quartzsite?

    You speak so loudly of Chief Jeff Gilbert’s protecting powers, then please explain to me and the other citizens of Quartzsite why he REFUSED to take a report, much less a Written Police Report when the charge of “Child Rape” was leveled against one of his QPD Officers? Or are you one that condones any 25 year-old Police Officer having a sexual affair with an underage girl while on duty? I have taken the time to inquire further into this matter and from Arizona State Law and Federal U.S. Code, one can make the case that Chief Jeff Gilbert violated the Law. BTW, the alleged QPD Officer was allowed to walk out on this one as well while Chief Jeff Gilbert failed to do his job!

    The best the county has to offer? Pull your head out of Chief Jeff Gilbert’s ass and look at the reality here. Chief Jeff Gilbert should not be in charge of any Police Department IMHO because of his demonstrated actions and cover ups of criminal activity by protected members of our local government and his QPD Officers. Before it is all over with you will find yourself eating crow because we will NOT stop until justice is done and our laws are obeyed!

    A dirty cop is just a dirty cop and the cop that fails to do something about it is no better and dishonors his fallen brothers and sisters that died in the line of duty keeping their sacred oath, “To Serve and To Protect.” Are you a Police Officer that keeps his sworn “Oath of Office,” or little more than a hired gun protecting the special interest of the few and even lower than the honest street criminal because he makes no bones about his breaking the law!

  49. To Gream Reaper.....

    I love the "name"... did your mommy or daddy pick it? Goes right along with the theme of the QPD, in which you are SO proud of! In response to your comment,"So next time you need a cop think about what they do. Or if your one of those that hates them then call a drug addict, thief, or murderer to protect you and see how warm and fuzzy you feel after that..", ever time we call on good old QPD, that what we get! And no it does not make me feel warm and fuzzy. In all honesty it make me sick to know that jeffy and his henchmen are our sworn protectors!!!!

  50. Look who is calling the kettle black. If you are so honest gream reaper then why did you not use your real name?

  51. It looks like Chief Jeff Gilbert has been under the spotlight for what many see as NOT doing the job (unless he was hired to do the personal strong arming for special interests and corrupt officials at town hall) he was hired to do. If he feels hard pressed now, wait until the majority of our residents come back to Quartzsite along with the vendors and snowbirds and start reading this blog.

    Once the victims learn that people are standing up to what they see as criminal strong arming, vice, and other criminal actions by the Town of Quartzsite and its Police Department you will see even more complaints being reported in writing to the Arizona Attorney General and U.S. Attorney Generals Offices demanding investigations and Grand Juries to be convene and investigate criminal activities of those under the “Color of Law.”

    I’m wonder just how they will look at Chief Jeff Gilbert’s views on what is a simple personnel issue, or a criminal act that demands a full outside investigation, charges filed, prosecution, and prison time for the offender. This isn’t a simple, “Bad Cop, No Donut” scenario!

    I for one and many others here in Quartzsite are looking forward to seeing Chief Jeff Gilbert explaining on all the major National TV Stations what was the deciding factor for him to take an alleged SEXUAL RAPE OF A CHILD by one of his POLICE OFFICERS by the stepfather of a UNDER-AGED GIRL and REFUSE to take a report! Let’s see if the News Reporters nation wide can justify Chief Jeff Gilbert’s decision to just make this a PERSONNEL ISSUE and NOT THE CRIMINAL RAPE OF A CHILD BY A POLICE OFFICER on his department!

    This is a cold slap in the face of seven-year-old Megan Kanka who was raped and murdered and the reason behind Megan’s Law. I doubt that Megan’s father would agree with Chief Jeff Gilbert and his lack of filing a full Written Police Report at the time of the complaint, and contacting the Arizona Bureau of Investigation to conduct a full criminal investigation. One of two things would have come out of those actions. First, if the QPD Officer were innocent, his name would have been cleared. If evidence showed that he had violated his “Oath of Office” and Arizona Law that PROHIBITS the sexual activity between an adult and underage child, prosecution of the offender!

    Chief Jeff Gilbert would better serve the Citizens of Quartzsite by tendering his resignation, turn in his badge (Let’s face facts here, his career in Law Enforcement is in doubt!) and get the hell out of Dodge before the Posse arrives to take him in…

  52. who else has Jeffy placed in the terrorist watch list because he can without any reason. That is why Im not using my name here.......

  53. Rumor or Not! Has Redding California responded to Jeffy’s resume? It would be a shame if he didn’t include the google search key, “Chief Jeff Gilbert” along with it. Then they would get to see him in action and how the people of Quartzsite think of him and his job ethics. That’s right Jeffy’s ain’t got any!

    Sounds like Jeffy is getting ready to jump ship and leave his brothers in blue to fend for themselves with the FBI...

  54. If you search out the name Jeff Gilbert in Lake Havasu court records it shows a guy with money problems. NA that can't be our Jeffy, he has ass kinds of money @82K/yr! I still like the videos on you tube and the other web sites showing him looking like a first class rookie jerk. Do you think they will like his videos too?

  57. It is bad enough that we have a (IMHO) vindictive, harassing, stocking, civil rights violating, hired gun in Chief Jeff Gilbert, but to think of all the good chances that our new QPD Officers had have been shot to hell by following his unlawful orders. This is something that will always follow them from job to job and kills any chance to get on any good Police Department is down the tubes too!

    If you take the time to research Town Manager Alex Taft’s, Chief Gilberts, and the Town Attorneys efforts in forcing the employees of Quartzsite to sign and enforced a non-disclosure along with telling them to talk with them before answering ANY questions from outside Criminal Investigators is against both the Arizona State Laws and that of the Federal Government. Try witness tampering just for one!

    It is just a matter of time before the wise residents of Quartzsite along with town employees will go in mass to the TV News Stations to tell their stories. Trust me when I say, there isn’t anything that Town Manager Alex Taft or Chief Jeff Gilbert can do when the “Truth” is spoken into the open microphone of a TV Camera on NATIONAL TV for the 5 and 10 o’clock NEWS!

    Do you think that we could see the Public Trials daily reports on National Evening News like the OJ Simpson Trial, showing testimony of just how well the people of Quartzsite were fleeced and had their Constitutional and Civil Rights stripped away by a Rogue Chief of Police and his merry men? How about the young new QPD Officers that have cut their own thoughts by following his directions in breaking the law or refusing to do their duties as trained?

    In the end, the jury will only care that you threw the rock that broke the window. Not that your Chief told you to, they don’t even care if he does it him self. You will be fond guilty because YOU KNEW BETTER! Right now it is a simple fix, but when someone gets killed to cover up a botch cop job, you will stand along side the others on the executioners dock awaiting the “Black Mask of Death”! “Whom does the bell toll for, it tolls for thee…”

  58. Was Laura's death because of a botched cop job? She did work for the town at one point.

  59. Just ask the question, why? Why would Jeffy have the case taken away from him? Why is it the policy of Jeffy not to take a complaint against his cops even for child rape? Its not the first time a cop from Quartzsite has been accused and one is serving time now for having an underage mistress. I have even been told another one of his cops even knocked up a 14 year old girl. Why is he covering up for Alex Taft and the criminal activities she has been accused of? Maybe he is paid to look the other way when it may put a crimp in his paycheck or in his case is it a why not?

  60. Just got off the phone with my dads friend and he was telling me about the new surveillance and bugs that the FBI and DEA are now using. Would you believe that they don’t have to even be in Arizona to watch Jeffy and the rest? They can now get real time video and gps tracking anytime they want it. You would shit your pants full at just what they can place into you house or business. It adds a whole new meaning to my dads old saying of film at eleven! I for one am going to LMAO when they give the news hounds their copies. All we have to do is guess who is who as they spill their guts to one another. Have any of you seen that one tv show where they let the defendant tell how he was set up and BAM they show him the video. BUSTED!!!

  61. Only God and the FBI know how long and I can't wait to find out who! ROTFLMAO! Ready to make your apology speech yet Jeffy?

    ReplyDelete
  62. If ever a demand backfired, this was it! I am sure that if Chief Jeff Gilbert had ever consulted with a competent Attorney at Law with experience in the filed of “Public Officials in Government,” they would have told him to, “Build a bridge and get over it.”

    In the end all the dirty little secrets will be told and those involved exposed to the public (If not the national new media) leaving Quartzsite with another black eye to go along with the new slogan. The legal suit against Chief Jeff Gilbert & the Town of Quartzsite by Jennifer Harris will force a Court Ordered opening of all records and sworn depositions that will expose everyone involved and the corruption they are involved in. Before you start to feel sorry for Chief Jeff Gilbert, he brought it upon himself.

    How many year round business like the General Store, Road Runner, and others that keep their doors open year round with income they make from winter visitors & venders being forced to close their doors for good? The end outcome will be even more winter visitors & venders skipping Quartzsite to avoid police harassment and heading to towns & cities that will welcome them and their money.

  63. Isn't that the plan with the town council and Alex Taft? Run off the snowbirds & venders turn Quartzsite into a retirement community like Palm Desert and Palm Springs. Tell me just who would spend 250k to 350k for a house they can't live in during the summer heat that can break over 130F in the shade. Did I forget to mention the water?

    ReplyDelete
  64. Retirement community??? More like a ghost town! I think Jeffy owes the citizens an apology and the new council we vote in next spring should start by retracting Gilbert!!!

  65. How about we promote unity rather than divisiveness? Return noble and honor to our law enforcement, lift it from the disgraceful pack of predators full of greed caring only, for the almighty dollar it has become.

    How far are you willing to go? Lining your pockets and those in the loop with money you steal, basically at gunpoint, from those who's lives you devastate for years, soaking them dry financially, forcing poverty and yes causing suicide by desperation, how can that bring a smile to your face? How can you even feel good about yourself?

    I listen to the scanner and it amazes me that most every one of you, including some dispatchers get a sound of excitement when someone is caught without the proper "gestapo papers". How's it feel to be a huge part in helping destroy America? Enforcing illegal laws and statutes like forced insurance, illegal requirement of drivers licenses? Stealing homes, cars, peoples private personal property.

    Now is the time to remember the oath you've taken to the People, the Constitution. Because in the end after you dispose of your community (which is what your "ICE" federal, ticket us to get us in the system and disaster training is all about, "depopulation", when you're no longer needed, who do you think is next in line? That's right... you'll be nobody special and you'll be next. You do realize your at the bottom of the law enforcement food chain don't you?
    So every time you frivolously stop a community member think about what your hassling them about. Think about who benefits from the misery of the single parent who has a license plate to bright and where it may take their lives to the better or worse?

    And remember you ARE the bottom of the law encroachment food chain and when were all gone your next....
