     Hello Jon...I am writing you on my website publicly. You will soon learn why...I have had contact with your department and I was left very unimpressed. I am in fear for my life now when talking to law enforcement officers everywhere because of your deputies...This is why I am writing you publicly...I DO NOT TRUST SISKIYOU COUNTY...It is the good 'ol boy system there and by now you must know it...
 
     I have read your bio on the web and I am very impressed at your accomplishments...I too started as a reserve police office and I too graduated top of my academy class...I was asked to resign my reserve position because I did not lie in court and support the "blue truth" and we all know what that is, right? I was proud of the badge that I wore...The truth shall prevail...
 
    Instead of law enforcement I followed my heart to Oregon, got married and divorced shortly thereafter; I had also fallen out of love with the cop idea and I discovered my real side, that of a teacher...Not your basic school teacher but the teacher of life...Therefore I AM...

Siskiyou County Deputies ruined my Service Dog

 

My Arrest 4-5-09

Corrupt D/A ~ Bad Cop

 

My complaint about this event sits on the state Attorneys General's desk...

 twice submitted, twice ignored...

 

Does the good 'ol boy system go all the way?

 

 

I WAS ROBBED

On or about a Sunday mid afternoon in the middle of March... I was at the property where I had resided for the last twenty five years.
 
My father died in '07 and my mother had the ten acre parcel split into two five acre parcels with the two houses being on the upper five acre parcel. The plan was to sell the upper and condense down to the lower five acres.
 
She was working with a banker type of person getting a reverse mortgage on the upper 5 with two houses, the bank person said "stop making your monthly payments" then, six months later the bank said that she did not qualify and was in arrears with the payments...
 
The bank refused to help her get caught up and foreclosed on the upper five with two houses; the bank did not even know there was an in-law unit on the property...
 
We were getting ready to habituate the lower five; we had a hard copy of the title and we spent about 7 thousand on a well and had made the down payment on a mobile that my mother would be comfortable in when the bank said, oh yeah, what you signed twenty five years ago says we get it all...
 
I had all of my personal stuff on the lower five preparing for a new permanence; We had a hard copy deed...I was staying in my camper and my new shed that I had bought for the purpose of storage. My water was shut off and I had to vacate abruptly.
 
I had talked to Brian Salado, with the Real Estate Group at 530.515.7899 and he said the due to possible snow my stuff would be alright until the spring thaw...That property gets heavy snow, it would be a while before I could move it and I needed time to find a new abode...this was around Oct '11... fast forward to around the end of January or the beginning of March... I was told of a short escrow by Brian and the need to start moving my stuff out. I called him several times with no return phone call and future registered mailings went unaccepted.
 
I had made two trips and got quite a bit out but I had twenty fives years worth of stuff and the weather was getting more wintry.
 
On my last trip, a Sunday mid-March, I was packing a load and Jim, the new owner, stopped by; I introduced myself and my four dressed and working service dogs along with the short story of my accident and brian injury. He said that this was to be my last trip to get stuff and anything left would belong to him because I had signed a statement of release...(that was for the house and the upper five)...I never signed anything on the lower five acres...I confirmed with him...The plow? yes! My shed? yes  my personal property? yes my firewood? yes my fence? yes...by this time my brain injury was starting to act up and the tremors had started and my service dogs were interrupting my absul seizures that my brain injury causes...I angrily yanked them away from the situation. One time my absul seizure caused me to hit my own service dog in the head half a dozen time with a coffee mug...Absul seizures are a dangerous and scary thing...I feel that had not my dogs intervened someone could have been hurt very badly...
 
I felt intimidated and verbally robbed...422.6 PC and 211 PC should cover that...There is also a conspiracy involved with the neighborhood but they will act squeaky clean...I want to press charges and get my property back.
 
A crime has been committed and it is the responsibility of the District Attorney to investigate and prosecute...I do not see the D/A being very helpful at all; I already have a complaint sitting on the State Attorneys General's desk...An addendum is no problem...

 

     I am disabled with a brain injury and I have death issues...I do not trust Siskiyou county at all...It would not surprise me at all if I were charged with a terrorist death threat by a lackluster group of good 'ol boys...In my array of life accomplishments I have had positions where if you did not do exactly what I told you to do you would die...just the facts...My job was to keep people ALIVE...

 

I had my court appointed anger management therapist contact the sheriff's office to get a deputy briefed on my situation to get the report started but the return message was unintelligible and I do not want to tell my story a hundred times trying to find the right person to take this report and follow through in a professional manner as should be done.

Sheriff Jon E. Lopey's Reply

 

Mr. Thomason:

 

Thank you for your message and for expressing your concerns.  I donít know much about this case but Iíll have a member of my staff look into this to determine what happened.  I realize there could be criminal and civil issues involved here.

 

You will be contacted soon.

 

Again, thanks for the information and thanks for expressing your concerns. 

 

Sincerely,

 

Sheriff Jon E. Lopey

 

 
Next contact 7.16.12
 
Good Morning Jon...My court mandated anger management therapist, Dr.. Kriss Berry, has spoken with me and she said that you had email contact with her and you were asking for a phone call...
 
    I sit here thinking about what has happened, who did what, the criminal aspect of it, the support of the neighbors, the district attorneys would be incompetent involvement, the "written reports"...and now it is time to call and talk with you...
 
    Jon..., I do not know how much my shrink has related to you but between you me and the tree I have a traumatic brain injury, they are real and my thoughts run the gambit...
 
    In my later years I have taken a liking to writing... some things that I am capable of writing are harmful to the brain; mine and others...The criminal and inappropriate behavior of "Jim" has caused me to think way out of the box...It is in the DNA of the human to defend and my pen will do a good job...
 
I have not even talked about my unlawful tazing and arrest back in 4-05-09; this was before your time, but I have lodged a complaint twice to the AG's office and they do not reply...I am not stupid...I submitted a quality document...I was tazed, arrested and booked for attempted murder for trying to help a dog...I got zero neighborhood support...The dog owner knew the DA...
 
My attorney that I wasted 10 thousand dollars was one of the good 'ol boys himself...
 
    As you can see there is reason to be tentative in my phone call and my brain response...
 
    I am now with my service dogs and their mitigation is magical; I can not disturb that...
 
    I will talk with you soon but an e-mail reply with your thoughts would be appreciated and please carbon copy my shrink...thnx...

Dave:

 

Thanks for the comments Ė I know you have been thru a lot.

 

I am looking at the case you cited earlier.

 

Thanks,

 

Jon

 

 11-21-12 It has been four months and I am still waiting.  The entire story can be seen here. http://www.onemanairshow.org/my_letter_to_the_sheriff.htm
 
Greetings Sheriff Lopey...As you can see from the header in this mail I have also sent this letter to several people...Like I said in my first email; I do not trust Siskiyou county.
Our first conversation gave me hope. I even made a custom t-shirt advocating Sheriff Lopey for President. I now will delete that design...I have been ignored by you even after my anger management therapist called and emailed you several times... a certified letter from my therapist went ignored.
Jon...There are several issues that need addressing...I AM PISSED!!! Don't worry; I have completed anger management as required by the court where I was coerced into a plea deal.

The county has made many very error filled decisions. The district attorneys office has attacked and intimidated me... This has gone far enough...

 

The DA's office pushed their intimidation on my father to the point of tears...He ran the anger management/mental health program for the county for a number of successful years...I had to watch my father cry in fearful terror because of the district attorneys asinine behavior.

 

Now they attack me and protect a dog abuser...Back when it happened I made the paper as a crazed old man; I never was asked my side of the story...The whole thing has affected me very severely.

My #1 Service Dog has been ruined. My blood has been spilled.

 

How severely you may ponder...This is where I tell you how I have been thinking and you crock up a terrorist threat case and screw me again...I ask my therapist to talk with you and explain how my brain injury affects my thinking but now the county malpractice insurance carrier forbade my therapist's involvement.

 

This is why I share my words with all; There is no designated hitter in this league and I am swinging the bat...

 

It could be that a sacrifice fly could be the ticket to get the district attorney into court and we can talk about their practices...Supporting a dog abuser does not work well for maintaining the publics trust...

 

I was tazed and booked for attempted murder after helping an abused dog because of a conspiracy of irresponsible behavior. I got no support from my neighbors and now I host thoughts about that entire neighborhood.

 

On or about a Sunday mid afternoon in the middle of March '12... I was at the property where I had resided for the last twenty five years.

 

My father died in '07 and my mother had the ten acre parcel split into two five acre parcels with the two houses being on the upper five acre parcel. The plan was to sell the upper and condense down to the lower five acres.

 

She was working with a banker type of person getting a reverse mortgage on the upper 5 with two houses, the bank person said "stop making your monthly payments" then, six months later the bank said that she did not qualify and was in arrears with the payments...

 

The bank refused to help her get caught up and foreclosed on the upper five with two houses; the bank did not even know there was an in-law unit on the property...

 

We were getting ready to habituate the lower five; we had a hard copy of the title and we spent about 7 thousand dollars on a well and had made the down payment on a mobile that my mother would be comfortable in when the bank said, oh yeah, what you signed twenty five years ago says we get it all...

 

I had all of my personal stuff on the lower five preparing for a new permanence; We had a hard copy deed...I was staying in my camper and my new shed that I had bought for the purpose of storage. My water was shut off and I had to vacate abruptly.

 

I had talked to Brian Salado, with the Real Estate Group at 530.515.7899 and he said due the to possible snow my stuff would be alright until the spring thaw...That property gets heavy snow, it would be a while before I could move it and I needed time to find a new abode...this was around Oct '11...

Fast forward to around the end of January or the beginning of March Ď12... I was told of a short escrow by Brian and the need to start moving my stuff out. I called him several times with no return phone call and future registered mailings went unaccepted.

 

I had made two trips and got quite a bit out but I had twenty fives years worth of stuff and the weather was getting more wintry.

 

On my last trip, a Sunday mid-March Ď12, I was packing a load when Jim, the new owner, stopped by; I introduced myself and my four dressed and working service dogs along with the short story of my accident and brain injury. He said he had heard about that and also that this was to be my last trip to get stuff or he would contact the sheriff; and anything left would belong to him because I had signed a statement of release...(that was for the house and the upper five)...

 

I never signed anything on the lower five acres...I confirmed with him...The plow? yes! My shed? yes! my personal property? yes! my firewood? yes! my fence? yes!...by this time my brain injury was starting to act up and the tremors had started and my service dogs were interrupting my Absul seizures that my brain injury causes... One time my Absul seizure caused me to beat my own service dog in the head half a dozen times with a coffee mug...

 

Absul seizures are a dangerous and scary thing...I feel that had not my dogs intervened Jim could have/ would have been hurt very badly...
I felt intimidated and verbally robbed...422.6 PC and 211 PC would cover that...There is also a conspiracy involved with the neighbors but they will act squeaky clean...
I want to press criminal charges and get reimbursement for my property. 

We NEED teach an adult bully a lesson...Remember, we do not like bullies. The public does not accept corruption from the highest office down to the lowest position on earth.

 

A crime has been committed and it is the responsibility of the District Attorney to investigate and prosecute...I do not see the D/A being very helpful at all; I already have a complaint sitting on the State Attorneys General's desk...An addendum is no problem...

 

I am disabled with a brain injury and I have death issues...I do not trust Siskiyou county at all...It would not surprise me at all if I were charged with a terrorist death threat by a lackluster group of good 'ol boys...In my array of life accomplishments I have had positions where if you did not do exactly what I told you to do you would die...I held a very responsible position in life...just the facts...My job was to keep people ALIVE...

 

I had my court appointed anger management therapist contact the sheriff's office to get a deputy briefed on my situation to get the report started but the return message was unintelligible and I do not want to tell my story a hundred times trying to find the right person to take this report and follow through in a professional manner as should be done.

 

As a law abiding responsible citizen I expect professional treatment...I also recommend that the Siskiyou County Judicial staff re-read the California Judges code of ethics...Yes there is such a document.

 

I have contacted the Attorneys Generals office and they advised to request a local grand jury investigation...I requested, they investigated and came to the conclusion that there were problems with the case; it should not have been prosecuted and recommended more staff hiring for the district attorneys office and they never talked to me.

 I still got screwed and they left the stick up my ass...I expect a refund for ALL OF my expenses...in addition to a sincere public apology.

 

It seems to be the way to do police work in Siskiyou County. Mt. Shasta Police took a false report from my ex-and-angry girlfriend in Ď05 and the district attorneys office pressed prosecution and kept me going to court monthly for a year until a restraining order was received then the case was dropped...and...of course there was no statement from me...

 

Jon...The bigger picture... I understand from friends that all of my stuff on the lower property is gone except for the shed that had all of my personal stuff in it, birth certificate, photo albums, computers... a lot of personal and non-replaceable personal belongings...gone...My snow plow has been disassembled (a friend took a picture) my motherís car and my fathers cremated ashes that were in his favorite rose planter barrels are also gone.

 

This has been a very revealing display of humanity and its selfishness, and you wonder the where/ín why of my thoughts...

 

I lived in Hammond Ranch for 25 years and helped anybody that needed help. The neighborhood continued to drive fast by my property and dust me; I am glad to not be living in Siskiyou County. I did my fair share for Siskiyou County...I started the balloon festival and aviation day that have turned into annual events. (21 years)

 

My endeavor now is to save more lives; the lives of our returning military with suicidal PTSD, Publicity is needed to let these ďyoungĒ veterans know that they can train their own service dog to mitigate the symptomology of PTSD.

They do not know...Lives will be saved.

 

An apology with financial obligation from Siskiyou County and a criminal prosecution of the new owner that stole my property should get some attention and monies to help more disabled veterans...

 

I wake every morning with thoughts that would paralyze the pope to put it mildly.

I DO NOT like waking with these thoughts caused by the actions of others...

If not for my service dogs humanity would be on its knees.

 
11-21-12 Sheriff Lopey's reply...with-in an hour I am pleased to mention...
 

Dave:

 

I was advised that you moved and I was advised that only an authorized therapist or health care provider should be talking to you. Based on your statements below Iíd say the following: 1) I get 50 to 60 emails a day and if Iím gone a couple of days they add up to several hundred; 2) I never ignored you and attempted to help you out; 3) You need to stay loose and Iíll look into your concerns further Ė I thought we were making progress; 4) I donít know what you went thru with the DA so Iíll look at it again; 5) I am sorry for what you have gone through; I know you have medical issues and I know you are having a tough time; 6) I will review what happened to you and give you some feedback. Do you have the specific date and time? I will see what I can find out.

 

There was some legal issue that arose and people attempting to help you lost that connection because of the typical bureaucratic red tape which so often encounters rules and regulations binding common sense and due diligence on the part of public or private servants.

 

I hope you and your family enjoy a joyous Thanksgiving.

 

Jon
