Bennett Witness Murdered - Robert Frazier

CONCORD — A Concord man shot to death in front of a bar early Saturday has been identified as 42-year-old Robert Frazier, authorities said Monday.


Frazier became the city’s second homicide victim of 2017 when he was hit by gunfire in front of Nica Lounge at 1907 Salvio Street just before 2 a.m. Saturday, police said. Police arrested a man suspected in the shooting after he was involved in a solo car crash later Saturday.
Lt. James Nakayama, the head of investigations for the Concord Police Department, said details of the investigation have kept police from identifying the suspect, a 27-year-old man who was still in a hospital Monday receiving treatment for non-life threatening injuries.
The hunt for the shooter also led to police fatally shooting a pit bull while they searched an Oakley address for the suspect. According to police, a pit bull broke loose from his collar and charged officers and the police dog named Hancock. The pit bull bit Hancock in the leg and clamped down on his neck, causing the officer to shoot, police said.
“It’s unfortunate that that happened,” Nakayama said. “We have to protect our police K9s and officers, as well.”
Police ordered a shelter-in-place during that Oakley neighborhood search in the 1900 block of Teresa Lane. Police used a SWAT team to help them in the search.
A fundraising account set up to help Frazier’s family raised $3,855 by 2 p.m., with one poster saying that Frazier “enriched my life with friendship and love.”

Sierra Drive Attempted Murder

Walnut Creek CA

Only a small select narrow and dubious group of people understand how complex events are near Pete Bennett.  On or about October 31st, 2014, after a night of performing music in downtown Walnut Creek buskin to replace the cash stolen from me by Walnut Creek, Lafayette and Danville leading the 2017 charges levied against District Attorney Mark Peterson resulting FELONY CHARGES FOR PERJURY

OBIT: Elizabeth Torres, 81

The large Torres family is suffering the loss of a family matriarch, as relatives pray that three other family members will recover rapidly from burns resulting from the blast. Elizabeth Torres, 81, who lived with her daughter Cindy and son-in-law Allen Braun in a Claremont Drive home in San Bruno, died despite Braun's attempt to rescue her by carrying her to the front porch, said one of Torres' nine children, David Wharton, 57, of Fair Oaks. "He saved my mom," Wharton said. "But a second blast" killed her. Braun is now in the hospital with 40 percent of his body burned, Wharton said. Braun's wife, Cindy, 45, and her sister Sandy Arnold, 58, are both in induced comas at St. Francis hospital. Arnold, who lives in Petaluma and works as an office clerk, has burns on 70 percent of her body. Cindy Braun, who used to be an office manager for Forbes magazine, has burns covering half her body, Wharton said. "This is monumental for us," he said. "The only reason I can talk is because I haven't accepted it yet." He said his mother worked as a nurse's aide for UC San Francisco for 27 years. In her later years, she got around in a wheelchair, even when she visited casinos, a favorite pastime. Torres was married twice and had nine children: Everett, Virginia, Sandy, David, Linda, Michael, Sharon, Gregory and Cindy.

Gun that killed Pittsburg officer also used in fatal Modesto shootout

Gun that killed Pittsburg officer also used in fatal Modesto shootout 

ASSOCIATED PRESS
12:17 a.m., June 11, 2003
PITTSBURG – The gun that killed Pittsburg police inspector Ray Giacomelli in April is the same weapon his suspected killer fired in a fatal shoot-out with police, according to ballistics tests.
Contra Costa Sheriff's Lt. Dan Terry said Tuesday the .40-caliber Glock handgun that killed Giacomelli was the same weapon used by Earl Foster Jr. during the firefight with police in Modesto.
Foster fled there after Giacomelli's slaying in Pittsburg on April 15. Investigators found Foster at a strip mall pay phone in the Central Valley city two days later.
A shootout ensued after Foster began firing at police, Terry said.
Foster died of multiple gunshot wounds; he was hit 22 times, according to an autopsy released Tuesday by the Stanislaus County coroner.
Law enforcement officials throughout northern California had launched a massive manhunt to locate Foster.
The 46-year-old Giacomelli was killed while investigating the homicide of Eric Louis Huffman, the brother of Foster's girlfriend who was found slain April 7.
Both Giacomelli and Huffman were shot in the face. Police have said Foster is the only suspect in Huffman's slaying.

Hillside Covenant Church - Magnolia Drive Walnut Creek

Hillside Covenant Church


Meeting Hillside members and receiving their free lunch was supposed to be a good thing but for me it wasn't as unknown to me was Kieth Lynds who was their Youth Director arranged with others to have me killed en-route from Walnut Creek to Lafayette where the plan was he was going to meet for Karaoke.  My car was totaled at First/Deer Hill Road and Lynds never showed.  

Within six months my car was totaled, I was in jail and my sons were gone.  The accident was July 20th, 2011, I was being followed through Walnut Creek by a Contra Costa District Attorney Investigator where I was able get his plates which were passed to the FBI. 

I was forced to sell my car for scrap, the tow company dropped me off at the Walnut Creek Library where I fell asleep in Civic Park awoken by a grounds keeper riding a mower.  Within minutes I was stopped by police with allegations that I'd attacked a city worker riding a mower.  
That was Captain Tim Schultz, Sgt. Mike Chan and I believe the guy following me through Walnut Creek, he's a DA inspector or Walnut Creek Detective.  Either way this group was trying to kill me but worse is the Chief and City Managers offices have clear views of events including me chasing Sgt. Chan with my laptop camera on

FBI Agent Frank Doyle Jr. - The FBI Bomb School Bombed Judi Bari

On my other posts about FBI Agent Frank Doyle Jr. my goal has been to introduce his name to the CNET Scandal, Bomb Squads and show is direct connection to Southern Pacific, my cabinet shop and moving lumber from the North Coast to the Bay Area.

The biggest clue came from the old Interstate Commerce Commission where they forced SP to keep open several rail lines from Eureka to the Bay Area but with Bennett v. Southern Pacific my story introduces a murder case in Concord CA.  

Watch the movie but I will be posting a modified version with my story merged into this story but I am adding in the 1988 bombing of an IRS Agent and introduce on why Chief Alex Fagan was murdered to cover-up his knowledge of events.  It was his girlfriend car that exploded in Walnut Creek just happened to work with parties very close my family.

Pleasant Hill: Multiple fires gut DVC police building

Pleasant Hill: Multiple fires gut DVC police building

image
By ROMAN GOKHMAN | Bay Area News Group
PUBLISHED: June 23, 2008 at 8:54 pm | UPDATED: August 15, 2016 at 6:22 pm
PLEASANT HILL — An arson likely destroyed the police services building at Diablo Valley College early Monday, investigators said.
“We had two (fires) on the outside and one on the inside in the lobby,” said Contra Costa County Fire Marshal Richard Carpenter. “Probably, the whole building will have to be replaced.”
The fire was reported at 2:25 a.m. in the 1,700-square-foot building located in the southeast corner of the campus by Parking Lot 2. The school runs along Golf Club Road.
The Contra Costa Fire Protection District responded with four engines, one truck and about 20 firefighters.
Carpenter said the fire destroyed the lobby and the rest of the building sustained heavy heat and smoke damage.
DVC spokeswoman Chrisanne Knox said police services, an actual law enforcement department that patrols several campuses within the Contra Costa Community College District, is based at Diablo Valley.
The department has about 20 sworn officers — five to six of whom work at DVC — four higher-ranking officers including a chief, about four dispatchers, two parking officers and 10 to 15 student aides.
On an interim basis, the police department will operate out of a conference room in the business and foreign language department.
“It was designed as an emergency command center and has all the (required communications equipment),” Knox said.
The college is looking at several other locations for a longer-term temporary home for the department.
She said the cost of the damages to the building has not been determined and it is not clear if it will be knocked down or restored.
“There was very little that was salvageable,” she said.
The criminal investigation is being led by the Contra Costa Sheriff’s Office, Knox said, with Pleasant Hill police and the school district police department assisting.
Carpenter said fire investigators are still trying to determine what kind of fuel was used by the arsonist.

Sen. Mark DeSaulnier’s Rusty Bolts Installers

This page reserved for my observations of the 500 Million Dollar Rusty Bolt Installers. 

Berkeley March4Trump:

When Congressman DeSaulnier plus others decided to boycott the inauguration his actions emboldened protesters but he also eroded his credibility with his peers on the other side of the aisle.

One thing you do as an American is support the President who has access to information most elected officials will never ever see.




Police Release Surveillance Image of Suspect in Walnut Creek Kidnapping, Robbery

Police Release Surveillance Image of Suspect in Walnut Creek Kidnapping, Robbery

By Bay City News

 

Walnut Creek Police Department

Walnut Creek police have released this surveillance image of a kidnapping and robbery suspect.

Police have released a surveillance photo of a man suspected of kidnapping a woman at gunpoint from her front yard in Walnut Creek on Tuesday and forcing her to withdraw cash from a bank.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 30s or 40s with an average build who is roughly 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was wearing jeans, a long-sleeve gray T-shirt, a straw hat, sunglasses and stockings or another item to cover his face at the time of the kidnapping and
robbery.

Police received a report around 11:55 a.m. Tuesday of a woman who was confronted in her yard in the 400 block of Muller Road by a man armed with a gun.

The suspect ordered the victim to drive to a Bank of America branch in downtown Walnut Creek where she withdrew money. The woman then drove back to her neighborhood and was let go unharmed, according to police.

The Pathetic Congressman DeSaulnier, the lynching of a black man near his former bar TR’s home of the Political power lunch crowd.


Dear Constituents and Readers
I have colorful but a tragic history connected to Congressman Mark DeSaulnier.  I was was once a heavy drinker in his bar.  We met in 1981 when m crew was building Hobies Roadhouse Bar and Restaurant when the City of Concord was a different place. 
There was a rough and tumble crowd near downtown off Sixth Street, there was urban sprawl extending to Clayton, but two blocks south a black man was lynched which is one of the original staged suicides,

Concord has many chapters of cover-ups and viscous political plays.   My personal connection is losing millions when my witness was murdered 1989.  The big problem was no one from the District Attorneys office asked my attorneys if his testimony was important. 
Public Meetings and Police
IN the coming days I am filing a claim with Diablo Valley College over the Affordable Care Act (ACA) meeting held on the DVC Campus.  Arriving early left a wide open clear space where the first row was empty.
Within minutes the College Police were called then later I was escorted out during a conversation with the President of DVC where we were discussing the murder of John T. Nejedly.
I know that Former Concord Officer Foley time as Concord Officer overlaps Congressman DeSaulnier business and political career that he and Foley would have met.
Too bad for the FBI I know enough about the CNET Scandal to know that anyone serving in SWAT would know Commander Norman Wielsch now inmate Wielsch sitting in Federal Prison.


In 1986 a black man found himself on he last train leading to the last stop leading to the Concord BART.   He called family for a ride but the next morning he was found hanging from a tree between TR’s Bar and Grill and the Concord BART. 

In 2003, less than 500 feet from the 1986 lynching Kevin Flanagan took his life in the B of A parking garage on the last day of job after being outsource.   There I am in 2003 holding a protest about American Jobs where I felt like the Baton Death March of WWII.  For us it was a war for B of A and IBM you got a bonus.
