Tom W. – Straighten up your "facts" before you make a comment. This is what you said:

Lets look at the facts.

[1] If He [the Chief of Police] is as "intelligent" as you say, why did he interrupt a town hall meeting and kidnap the active speaker who had the floor.

[2] Parliamentary procedure requires that a motion cannot be filed until the person making the motion gets the attention of the Chair person (the Mayor in this case) and be 'recognized' by him.

[3] The council could not hold a secret meeting during the regular public meeting (chaired by the mayor) and make a motion and vote to remove the active speaker. This clearly violates procedure.

[the Chief of Police]

[4] First of all, the Police Chief does not "run the town".

[1] The Chief of Police Jeff Gilbert DID NOT "interrupt a town hall meeting" which you falsely stated. A female and male police officers interrupted the pet groomer Jennifer Jones who was holding the microphone while lambasting the Council Members of their alleged wrongdoing and verbally abusing them with her accusations of corruptions, right in the middle of the meeting. Apparently, the Mayor who chaired the meeting, was enjoying the pet groomer’s abuse of the Council Members and due to the Mayor’s incompetence in putting the meeting to order, the members voted to declare this abuser out of order and police officers were called and escorted the raving woman raving mad out of the hall.

So Tom W. straighten up your facts – one the Chief of Police was not in the meeting and you imagined he was there and interrupted the meeting… two, the out-of-control woman converted the meeting hall into a war room and the Council has to unanimously declare the hostile abuser out of order and that was when out of the room she went. This "active speaker" was not "kidnapped" -- a lie you want the public to believe. That she was kidnapped was the language used by the police-hating alternative Media.

The angry media-woman accuser should have ventilated her anger in court not in the meeting hall in front of the video camera. Obviously, she was hugging the limelight. She was described as a leftist "agent provocateur" that runs a radical publication where she had previously threatened harm to the Chief of Police and members of the QPD in a one-man hate campaign crusade.

[2] The Mayor enjoyed the mud-slinging and does not know how to run the meeting in order. What "parliamentary procedure" are you talking about …

[3] There was no "secret" meeting of the Council. The Council has to move in due to the Mayor’s incompetence. If there was a violation of procedure, it was the Mayor who did it for not calling the meeting to order when the verbal abuse started. He was incompetent.

[4] You said the Police Chief does not "run the town". Of course even your child in kindergarten should know this. It is the other side who accused the Chief of Police of running the town in place of the incompetent Nazi-hating Mayor. The Nazi-hate Mayor called him a "Nazi" who leads a corrupt police department. That’s all what the Mayor – a former Marine who hated Nazis – was good at!

JVdville - Nice spin! The truth is I agree with you that the town has been hijacked but like nearly every city in the nation, it has been hijacked by a corporation that makes its profit on the backs of the common town folk. The difference here is that someone finally stood up to them.

I would say that it's a bit arrogant to say that the "town folks depend on" the Chief of Police to plunder them. I think they were doing just fine before when they had more money in their pockets.

"most educated and intelligent member of Quartzsite officialdom running the town" - First of all, the Police Chief does not "run the town". The town is supposed to be self governed and certain powers granted to elected officials. The Police Chief is not even elected and is only supposed to enforce the existing law.

Lets look at the facts. If He is as "intelligent" as you say, why did he interrupt a town hall meeting and kidnap the active speaker who had the floor. Parliamentary procedure requires that a motion cannot be filed until the person making the motion gets the attention of the Chair person (the Mayor in this case) and be 'recognized' by him.

What you are advocating is anarchy. There has to be rules, and as much as the council and Police chief hate the Mayor they still have to respect the rules and respect the he was duly elected by the people. 

 This is not about left and right, this is about right and wrong and order vs chaos.

Nazi-Hater Mayor & The Alternative Media

My assessment of what’s happening in Quartzsite, an isolated community of simple folks living in the fringes of civilization so to speak is that a group of "agents provocateurs" from the Left took advantage of the people’s ignorance and had taken over this less developed remote frontier town somewhere in the middle of the vast desert of Arizona. The Mayor named Ed Foster, is not in control of the town reportedly because of his discriminatory prejudice and ignorance of the law. To him anyone who has differences with him is a "Nazi". He was a former Marine and reports say that in the military he has been indoctrinated to hate and kill "Krauts or shoot Nazis dead" as what happened in WWII. He still lived his war with "Nazis" in Quartzsite, Arizona to this day.

It has also been reported that the only most educated and intelligent member of Quartzsite officialdom running the town is the Chief of Police named Jeff Gilbert whom town folks depend on. The elected City Council officials rely on his knowledge and wisdom in governing the city’s township. Thus the two major opposing forces in Quartzsite are the members of the City Council that rely on the Chief of Police on how to run the city on one hand, and on the other the "Nazi-hate" Mayor who aligned himself with the left-leaning hate-mongers in the Media to promote his sagging political image.

I do not claim infallibility in summarizing those reports. However, I do believe that this website should publish both sides of the story as the story unfolds. The revolutionary mission of FP.com and its media responsibility of fair reporting should be editorially held at least parallel and of equal importance. It shouldn’t be wrongly considered as a conflict of editorial interest. [The opposite of the anti-State view that is opposed to the site's call to arms for a revolutionary change.]

[See my letter to the Editor about a couple of days ago that FP.com decided not to publish.]
