Quartzsite fires whistleblower cops

In stunning defiance of Federal Judge Mark Aspey's recommendation to keep "the staus quo" and work it out in arbitration, town tyrants have served Quartzsite "whistleblowers" with notices of termination!
Clearly, Chief Jeff Gilbert wants to show the officers who came groveling back last month who's boss!

Now, this will likely turn the Federal case, from an injunction to a wrongful termination /civil rights suit. Ok folks, scrape up the change from under your sofa cushions, and hit that donate button to help them defeat the "unholy trinity" at Quartzsite Town Hall!


  1. It isn’t hard to crunch the numbers here. Jade 2.5 to maybe 10 Million. Michael could be a good 5 Million. Then there is the now Quartzsite-9 and with their alleged criminal complaints compounded by Chief Jeff Gilbert and Quartzsite Town Hall we are looking at as much as 10 Million each plus Attorney fees.

    Now if Town Manager Alex Taft had to raid the HURF funds to make payroll, just where is she and the Town of Quartzsite going to come up with 105 Million to pay off the Civil Suites. Along with the civil actions you can expect to see criminal action against the Town Council, Now Mayor Lizarraga, Town Manager Alex Taft, Asst-Manager Al Johnson, Chief Jeff Gilbert, along with his “Brown Nose Posse”! When they are all cooling their heals in a state and/or federal prison who do you think they are going to come after to pay the bills?


    Title 18, U.S.C., Section 241
    Conspiracy Against Rights

    This statute makes it unlawful for two or more persons to conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person of any state, territory or district in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him/her by the Constitution or the laws of the United States, (or because of his/her having exercised the same).

    It further makes it unlawful for two or more persons to go in disguise on the highway or on the premises of another with the intent to prevent or hinder his/her free exercise or enjoyment of any rights so secured.

    Punishment varies from a fine or imprisonment of up to ten years, or both; and if death results, or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years, or for life, or may be sentenced to death.

  2. See what happens when you do the right thing in this County? And when you do the wrong things you get promoted! This is all right out of the Dan Field playbook!

  3. It looks as though Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne is still asleep at the switch when it comes IMHO, to crimes of “High Treason” in Quartzsite Arizona! Could Mr. Horne be not only part of the problem, but also part of what most Quartzsite Citizens feels is another political cover up?

    More Quartzsite Police Officers that are part of the Quartzsite-10 were reported fired Friday for reporting not only alleged criminal activity by Chief of Police Jeff Gilbert but clear violations of Civil Rights in attempts to protect members of the Quartzsite Council, Town manager Alex Taft, Asst-Manager/Code Enforcement Al Johnson and other members of the QPD that support Chief Jeff Gilbert!

    Let me introduce to you QPD Officers J.C. Kemp who was fired this last Friday and one of the Quartzsite-10. He served four years with the La Paz County Sheriffs office as a Deputy before being hired by the Town of Quartzsite. Officer Kemp is not only lucky at having a wonderful wife but the joys of being a father when on the early morning of May 19, 2007 God intervened in this young officers life.

    During the traffic stop of a motor home that morning, Gregory Allen “Groundhog” Cole opened fired on Officer Kemp with a modified AR-15 making it fully automatic. Officer Kemp’s patrol vehicle was disabled taking out his radio, door look release, and computer system forcing the wounded officer to escape from the passenger’s side of the vehicle!

    One bullet was slowed down by hitting the portable radios microphone keeping it from reaching Kemp’s heart! Officer Kemp was airlifted to Phoenix and later returned to Quartzsite to start his recovery and with time return to protecting the Citizens of Quartzsite, Arizona only to be fired for reporting the alleged criminal misconduct by Chief Jeff Gilbert.

    Please take the time to re-read or for many here, reading for the fist time, former QPD Officer J.C. Kemps statements in regards to his personal observations about Chief Jeff Gilbert. Contact and DEMAND that the Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne stop the cover ups by convening a “Special Grand Jury” where all evidence, witnesses, and testimony can be heard and allow the chips fall where they may.
