Operation Phoenix: pedophile ring!

San Bernardino City Council unanimously voted to give “pastor” David Rhone (lately, better known as “Pastor Pedo Master”) of First Church of the Nazarene an ultimatum: either ban all sex offenders from his “church” grounds, or lose all monies given to his church from the city for the city-ran Operation Phoenix and SOAR children’s programs. He has stated that he will not comply and he feels that the registered pedophile he had hired (Mr. Hoyt) had a civil right to be there. Mr. Rhone claims that the ultimatum is a violation of his civil rights and he will not take the necessary steps to protect the children in the programs from contact with pedophiles that the city requested.

Councilman Rikke Van Johnson has taken the matter back to city council for review. Monday, the council will again have the chance to avoid an investigation into Patrick J. Morris' precious cash cow: Operation Phoenix.

Recently, yet another pedophile has been tied to Operation Phoenix. Reports came to a local civil rights activist regarding another Operation Phoenix pastor harboring another pedophile in San Bernardino. The family of the pedophile had gone to the pastor for guidance and support after finding over seven-hundred child pornography pictures the pedophile had downloaded on the family computer. The pastor instructed the family members not to turn the pedophile in to the police, but to allow him to place the pedophile in a local group home so that he may help “treat” him. The pastor reportedly told the family that he harbors many pedophiles and he could “cure” him of the condition of pedophilia.

The family kept the pedophile’s actions a secret, as instructed by their religious leader, for a total of two months before offering the police the computer with the photographs on it. Higher-ups in the San Bernardino Police Department refused the computer because the pictures had been deleted, although remained recoverable, citing “high political stress times” and that the photographs needed to be seen by police before the computer could be taken as evidence. After City Attorney (mayoral candidate) Jim Penman’s office learned of the situation, a city attorney investigator immediately went and picked up the computer for data recovery at an undisclosed location.

Concern for pedophile after pedophile popping up at Operation Phoenix community centers has the already nervous community of San Bernardino a little more guarded than usual. Could this be a pedophile ring in light of recent discoveries? Citizens of San Bernardino murmur in the streets, little more than a whisper is queried of what’s to be done about “Operation Molestation.” Offending pastors and politicians show no remorse for the violated children who are harmed by their greedy actions. There aren’t even any apologies of proud “pastor” Rhone for permitting the known pedophile to be hired to work at the children’s center. One thing is for certain: if Patrick J. Morris wins this mayoral election, Operation Phoenix will definitely go national, as-is.

Operation Phoenix pastor wants to keep pedophile

The first city council meeting of San Bernardino after the ACORN bust found itself opening with a copy of a memo that yet another sexual predator, Jason Hoyt, was working at the very same Operation Phoenix center that alleged pedophile, Mike Miller, worked at. Apparently, the news was too much for councilman Chas Kelly to keep quiet about. With a nervous sounding voice, he finally insisted upon the council calling the matter for discussion.

When police Chief Kilmer was called upon, he explained that his department did investigate to see if there was any wrongdoing by the predator and none was found. Furthermore, he claimed, he was not considered a “high risk” sexual predator. The pastor of First Church of the Nazarene (Pastor Rhone), the church that housed the Operation Phoenix center, reportedly knew this man was a sexual predator, but he still allowed this man to do work at the church that had at least three children’s programs (including a preschool). The church had apparently requested that the convicted pedophile merely be restricted in his movements at the church.

Ultimately, though Mayor Morris objected, the council unanimously voted to give an ultimatum to Pastor Rhone: either ban all convicted sex offenders from his church to keep the children safe, or the city would stop paying rent at his facility. Also, Mr. James Penman, city attorney who is running against Morris for the position of mayor of San Bernardino, cited several laws that gave him the power to warn the parents that a pedophile had been at the Operation Phoenix center where their children had been. The police chief, Kilmer, objected; however, Penman set to warning the families the following day.

On September 23rd, the day after said city council meeting, James Penman and his investigators were posted at the children’s facility, passing out fliers stating that a sex offender had been working at their children’s pre-school: Operation Phoenix. Many Morris supporters were not in favor of telling the parents of the possibility of the children having come in contact with a convicted pedophile. Apparently, they believed, as Morris did, that it should have been kept private and he should be allowed to be there.

Pastor Rhone stated that it ws a civil rights violation to ask him to ban all sexual predators from the children’s facility as it is also a church and sexual predators have a right to worship where they please. He believes that the city council will reverse their decision and continue to have the children’s facility at his church that allows sexual predators to attend and work at.

Recently, Mayor Patrick J. Morris did meet with V.P. Joe Biden about the possibility of spreading this program throughout the United Statyes and, apparently, Mr. Biden thinks this is a good idea, as did ACORN at the genesis of Operation Phoenix.

Currently, Serenah’s Angels (a family & civil rights advocacy group in San Bernardino) is investigating further allegations that yet another pastor involved with Operation Phoenix may be harboring and protecting pedophiles on a regular basis.

Operation Phoenix and ACORN, sitting in a tree

Earlier this week, ACORN was caught on video trying to help set up a brothel for underage immigrant girls (thirteen 13-15 year olds) in San Bernardino where the profits would go to support the political career of an aspiring politician. In the video, many names were rattled off in what seemed like references by the ACORN employee who claimed to want to assist in the set up of this “business” in San Bernardino. Among the names mentioned was one Congressman Joe Baca, firm supporter of Operation Phoenix (Mayor Patrick Morris’ “anti-crime” campaign).

In his run for re-election in late 2006, Joe Baca claimed credit for his involvement in Operation Phoenix as a positive reason to re-elect him. Countless complaints of civil rights violations by Operation Phoenix officers and participants have been reported and complaints that CPS has unjustly placed families under investigation and removed children from their homes because of Operation Phoenix raids on the poorer parts of the city; however, no complaint of Operation Phoenix can be considered as vile as the alleged molestation of three children in the “community centers” by Operation Phoenix employee (at 144K per year salary), Mike Miller.

Recently, Mayor Patrick J. Morris has taken his “anti-crime” program to Washington and promoted it for use throughout the United States. Patrick Morris is an ex CPS judge who sits on the boards of directors to many non-profits, some of which are contracted by CPS and make money every time his Operation Phoenix program lands a child into the foster care system. He is currently seeking re-election in San Bernardino.

As it turns out, ACORN directly supported Patrick J. Morris’ Operation Phoenix at a San Bernardino City council meeting in late 2007. Some twenty ACORN members showed up in red vests in support of the communistic program and were recognized by the mayor and council there. Considering the molestations, ties to many non-profits and similarities between the general template suggested by ACORN for the brothel and Operation Phoenix affiliate non-profits, one has to consider if Operation Phoenix and the re-election of Patrick J. Morris are a good idea for San Bernardino at all, much less the United States.

Penman finds free boxing program for disadvantaged youths of San Bernardino

Only a few weeks ago, the local media covered a story about the shooting of several children in the Arden and Guthrie area of San Bernardino. Some citizens were saddened, others were outraged. Many feel that the violence is unstoppable and merely shake their heads in disappointment and shame of what San Bernardino has become in the face of such tragedies as these. Others, such as Jim Penman (City Attorney who is currently running for mayor), searched for solutions to cure the problem.

Mr. Penman found that The Home of Neighborly Service was willing to take on the challenged children and provide them with a unique program involving free boxing lessons, mentoring and tutoring. The rules for the program include the children having to maintain a C average grade point average. Regardless of where their grades are when they join, they’ll be permitted to begin the program. If their grades are low, they will be required to use the tutoring service.

Another interesting part of the program are the rules surrounding the sportsmanship in and out of the gym. None of the children will be permitted to use their boxing to intimidate others inside or outside of the gym. They will be part of a program that teaches tolerance and kindness to others and the importance of respecting not only others, but themselves. It is a strict rule of the program that the children are taught that, regardless of where the members come from, they are all there to support one another. No gang, drug or bully activity will be tolerated in the program.

Still, No Investigation Into Operation Phoenix

It has been over a year since sexual assault charges on multiple minors were brought against Mike Miller, employee of San Bernardino Mayor Patrick Morris’ Operation Phoenix Center (at $144K per year salary with no full job discription and full access to small children), and there has yet to be a public investigation into Operation Phoenix. In fact, Patrick J. Morris has taken his “anti-crime” program idea to Washington to promote it for use throughout the United States of America. Such behavior has upset residents across the United States and concerns many civil rights activists.

According to residents in San Bernardino, it would seem that the right to be free from illegal search and seizure does not exist during so called “Operation Phoenix Sweeps” in San Bernardino, Ca. Many residents claim that officers involved in Operation Phoenix muscle their ways into local youths’ book bags and detain innocent citizens while officers “run” them for warrants in targeted areas. Some have even claimed that officers have planted evidence on them.

In the very first Operation Phoenix area, officers shot a young man by the name of Cedric May to death and much controversy has surrounded the case. Eyewitness accounts and video footage would indicate that the young man was shot while in handcuffs; however, the officers involved claimed that Cedric May had wrestled away the trained and experienced officer’s tazer and pointed it at the officer’s face. No weapons or drugs were found on Cedric May’s person or in the vehicle he was traveling in.

Countless cases of child abuse were brought against families in Operation Phoenix areas who all seem to have the same complaint: that they were denied the right to present evidence or call witnesses to clear their names in front of judges affiliated with child protection services contracted agencies. Mayor Patrick J. Morris founded a few of these, such as The Children’s Fund (the business diagnoses child abuse). The more children who need to be checked out, the more grants his “non-profit” gets from the government: all at the tax payer’s expense.

A year ago, Councilwomen Wendy McCammack and Esther Estrada wanted an investigation into the program. Considering the recent allegations of child molestation in an Operation Phoenix community center, they felt that there were answers needed for the public; however, Councilman Chas Kelly did not find the situation as serious as the councilwomen did. This reporter caught him on camera, giggling while Wendy McCammack implored and investigation into Operation Phoenix.

Arrest made in the Arden/Guthrie Shooting

Not much positive has been said of the little, East-side of San Bernardino neighborhood that used to be known as "Little Africa” in recent days. Other residents of San Bernardino have claimed the neighborhood is gang-infested, crawling with pimps and hookers. The neighborhood residents have been trying to oversome stereotypes attached to the neighborhood from years ago. On September second, a tragedy struck the neighborhood: four children were shot while playing.

Police immediately responded to the scene and secured the area. No vehicles could leave the area and none could come in. The father of two of the children who were shot attempted to break through the secure area and reach his bleeding children, but police aggressively stopped him so that his children could receive proper medical care. Only hours later, he was grateful to the officer who accidentally sprained his wrist and helped to save his children’s lives.
The residents were confused and angry, trying to find reason for the incident. Many of them considered this altercation and that, trying to think of suspects. Some blamed the fact that the street lamps were not functional. Others blamed a recently sprouted urban legend.

Police worked ‘round the clock, taking every viable lead they could get. Dealing with the victims, neighbors, family and friends of the victims, the police did not let up when the station closed for the night. One would never consider that these cops and youths did not have much respect for one another in recent months if they were to look at the way the case was handled on both sides. Only weeks ago, the area supervising officer had to deal with PR issues in that area. An officer was kind enough to come out and speak with the children and explain where the police were coming from and promised that the children’s issues with certain officers would be dealt with accordingly. A truce was called.

Last night, an arrest was made in the shooting. The police won’t say much, but it is apparent that they have enough evidence to file charges on the individual. An exhausted area sergeant called and explained the dedication given by the police officers involved in the investigation this morning. He added that there couldn’t be much said of the individual who was in custody because it may cause problems with the case when it goes to trial. That respect will be given.

The neighborhood in question will be holding a meeting on Saturday to begin a neighborhood watch program. The area sergeant will be gathering tools for them; however, they won’t be ready for the Saturday meeting because it is short notice for him and he has, after all, been working ‘round the clock on the shooting case. He deserves his weekend.

21 Year Old Executed By San Bernardino Officer

A 21 year old man by the name Cedric May was executed by San Bernardino Police on Monday, August 24, 2009. It happened on Wall Ave., a small alley in San Bernardino, right next to his family member’s home the day after he was released from incarceration for marijuana sales. He was picking up a piece of a barbecue to celebrate his release from incarceration and his decision to clean up his act.

The story given by the officers involved is that they saw a young man running down the alley and get into a vehicle that was parked on the wrong side of the road. They claim that, when they went to investigate, Mr. May grabbed the officer by the genitals, squeezed them, grabbed his tazer and pointed it in the officer’s face. At this point, the officer’s partner supposedly was forced to shoot Mr. May to death.

Video footage shared with this reporter indicates that these reports are untrue, entirely. The family has requested the footage not be shared with the public at this point in time so that S.B.P.D. can have the opportunity to “hang” themselves with their own lies. The moment the family is certain that S.B.P.D. has settled on an official story, they and their supporters will release the footage of the slaughter.

Video footage and eyewitness accounts indicate that an officer “set-checked” (Asking what gang they were from) the people in the vehicle in the small alley (no room to park or drive more than one vehicle at a time) and ordered them to move their vehicle. When they did not move fast enough for the officers, the first officer dragged the driver out of the vehicle, had the passengers get out, handcuffed everyone from the vehicle and proceeded to assault them.

Once Mr. May identified himself as being on parole, the officers left the other three alone, proceeded to beat Mr. May worse, taze him several times and then shoot him. The officers dragged Mr. May deeper into the alley and let him die there. It was hours before an ambulance came and, when it did, officers on scene told the ambulance that Mr. May was already dead and to leave. All the while Mr. May laid on the ground, slowly dying, the officers on scene didn’t so much as offer him a band-aid. He received absolutely no medical attention. Before Mr. May’s body was removed from the scene, officers took the handcuffs off of his body and replaced them with zip-ties.

The San Bernardino Police Department claims that placing handcuffs on shot suspects is standard operating proceedure, even if the person is dead. They claim the reason behind this tactic is that officers are not EMT’s and are unable to determine whether a body is dead or not. This is curious because the officers sent medical aid away for this man, claiming that he was dead. There were other discrepencies found in the officer’s statements, too.

Currently, the S.B.P.D. claims this started out as a traffic stop; however, the video footage and eyewitness accounts indicate that the police vehicle never had any lights on. They claim the vehicle was parked going the wrong way on the street; however, the incident happened in a very tiny alley-way. The officers claim that Mr. May grabbed and squeezed the officers genitals before snatching the officer’s tazer and pointing it in the officer’s face; however, video footage and eyewitness account indicate that Mr. May was handcuffed and did not struggle except to keep from being beaten to death. If the officer was trained properly, Mr. May shouldn’t have been able to gain access to the tazer, anyway.

Another interesting fact is that this incident happened in the area of the first Operation Phoenix sect in San Bernardino. These officers were participatory in the Operation Phoenix training/attitude. Many Operation Phoenix officers hold the belief that, although harassing innocent civillians is unconstitutional, they are doing it for the greater good of society. They are comfortable with antagonizing troubled youths in the poorer parts of San Bernardino. Some have recently been accused of calling youths “nigger” and threatening to kick in their teeth. The officers involved in this execution are no different.

There are several youths claiming that the officers involved have even gone so far as to antagonize neighborhood youths until the youths retaliate and then they assault them. One child claimed to have been “chicken-winged” by one of the involved officers little more than a week ago.

Currently, the officer who supposedly shot Mr. May has been placed on paid leave. This is how the San Bernardino Police Department treats officers who murder youths in cold blood.

Operation Terrorization: Coming To A Neighborhood Near You!

A program started by San Bernardino City Mayor, Patrick J. Morris, supposedly developed to stop gang activity is being considered in Washington. The program, dubbed “Operation Phoenix,” was supposed to be a collaboration between law enforcement, social services, code enforcement and many others to “reach the community” through community centers, sweeps in high crime neighborhoods and block parties held to help “expose residents to services available to them.” These “services” were the judicial system, welfare, Child Protective Services/foster care, and code enforcement citations.

Since it’s inception, Operation Phoenix has purportedly lowered crime statistics; however, Steve Tibbetts, Criminology Professor at CSUSB, differed. Apparently, many crimes that would have been classified as “violent” crimes prior to Operation Phoenix have been reclassified to make it appear as if Operation Phoenix was actually working to lower crime when nothing could be further from the truth. It was reported that prior police chief, Michael Billdt, attempted to bully the professor into recanting his statement, but it did not work.

One of the community centers had a man (Mike Miller) working there with no actual job description who was paid $144K per year with full access to children. This resulted in the alleged molestation of at least three children. These community centers had issues: footballs & no pumps; social workers trolling for potential C.P.S. cases and nudie pic sessions between other staff members and strange women.

The “sweeps” were the worst. “Sweep” is another term for “raid” so, essentially, Operation Phoenix did raids on the poor parts of town, pretty much door to door with law enforcement, C.P.S. (Child Protective Services), code enforcement and a “part time” district attorney hired (who was paid $111K per year) to nit-pick residents for any reason to cite, arrest them and take their children into the foster care system. Teenagers were stopped, searched and ran for warrants, criminalized for simply walking around their own blocks. Complaints of officer misconduct were rampant, but residents were intimmidated into not talking.

Patrick J. Morris sits on the boards of directors to many C.P.S. contracted agencies, including but not limited to “The Children’s Fund.” For all intents and purposes, his agencies make money whenever a child is taken into the foster care system and his program bolsters foster care ratios through the proverbial roof. Now, he intends upon unleashing his program thruout the whole United States of America. That’s right! He’s going to Washington with Operation Terrorization. What is America going to do about it?

Sheriff Hoops Fouls San Bernardino

It was requested of this reporter to pay a visit to the Arden Guthrie area of San Bernardino by some concerned residents on August 7th of 2009. There were reports that S.M.A.S.H. team was gearing up at a local Target parking lot and the residents were concerned that, due to complaints of officer misconduct, there may be some abuse of power impending.

At approximately 10p.m., a Fontana P.D. vehicle was seen cruising in the area. I stopped the car and asked them if they were getting ready to do an Operation Phoenix Sweep and they confirmed that they were. I told them they were welcome in the neighborhood; however, only if they were respectful of the residents and I also informed them that I would be filming. I suggested that they only “raid” the homes they had warrants for and leave the other residents alone because it is illegal to enter homes uninvited without a warrant. The officers found it humerous and the driver stated that a warrant is not always needed. A few moments later, a distraught young man, escorted by another resident, came running toward me and stated that he’d just been stopped by Fontana P.D. on Guthrie, called a “punk” and “nigger” by one of the officers and intimmidated into staying until they’d ran him for warrants.

Moments after that, a young, single mother ran to me, claiming that she had also been stopped and harassed by Fontana P.D. This was disturbing to me; therefore, I traveled around the block to Sunrise, where some children were gathered on their property, upset. I asked them what they were upset about and one said that Fontana P.D. had stopped in front of their play area and asked them what the area was called. My group has been trying very hard to change the mindset of these children and part of this was to change the street nickname from “Little Africa” to “Sunrise,” or “Arden-Guthrie.” Upon realizing what the officer was demanding, one of the older boys gave him the answer he was clearly searching for, “Little Africa.” Then, the officer rolled his eyes and stated, “I wonder why,” before he and his partner took off in their squad car.

Interestingly enough, none of these residents had seen one another that night before speaking to me. There were many other squad cars in the area and many other cops to blame; however, all of the complaints were about the same squad car with similar complaints.

I tried to call the watch commander and only spoke to a watch commander who was not involved in the sweep. He promised me that the watch commander in charge of the sweep would call me back, but they never did; therefore, I went to the Sheriff’s office on Monday morning and requested to speak with Sheriff Hoops. While I was waiting for Sheriff Hoops, Captain Tanguay came out and informed me that the Sheriff would not ever meet with me and, after I informed her of the problem, she also told me that her department is not responsible for the misconduct of other city police officers who they invited to our city.

How is it that our Sheriff’s Department can invite people into our city to do these things and take all credit for any positive results, but shirk all responsibility for any negative results? I urge all San Bernardino County residents to vote out Sheriff Hoops if this is the behavior we can expect from his underlings.

The Death of Little Africa

San Bernardino City Council voted 4-3 in favor of a redevelopment project for the little, East-side neighborhood, better known as the “Arden-Guthries,” or “Little Africa” on Monday, July 20th. The project would vacate the existing families from their existing residences and bring in the “non-profit,” low income housing company, “Mary Erickson Community Housing,” (better known as MECH). The Federal Dollars intended for this endeavor are only legally available for foreclosed or abandoned homes; however, there is one problem with that: there are families living there.

Sir Isaac Lindsay, running for Mayor of San Bernardino against Patrick J. Morris, led the rallying of citizens who lived in the small, disadvantaged neighborhood to City Hall. None knew about the project prior to his visit to their streets on Saturday, July 18th. When Mr. Lindsay was asked what he was in favor of, he replied, “I’ve got my own ideas on what should and shouldn’t be done here, but I’m just here to help these good folks be heard. They’ve got to live here, after all: right?” Sir Isaac Lindsay helped drive those without transportation to the meeting on Monday, as well as his trip on Saturday to inform the residents of what was happening.

This reporter interviewed Ms. Susan McDevitt (representing Mary Erickson Community Housing) and was able to obtain a copy of the program plans, as well as the rental agreement most residents will have to sign in order to live in the housing planned for the area. When asked why the people would have to submit themselves to life skills training, as if they were in some sort of druggie program, Ms. McDevitt replied that it “will only be about six times a year and not that intrusive.” She was unmoved at the pleas of the current residents in their addresses to the city council on how they did not want this program in their area and did not want to be thrown out of their homes.

Mayor Patrick Morris called the people who did not live in the area first (for the most part). Most people shared the opinion that the neighborhood needed to be torn down because there was nothing but drug addicts, prostitutes and pimps there; however, the words of two young girls who shared the speaker’s podium together resonated through the audience.

“I am, in fact, human,” said one to the remarks people had been making. “I am an honor roll student.”

“There aren’t any prostitutes there,” said the other. “I am not a prostitute. I don’t do that.”

“We don’t wear that jacket,” said their mother.

Chaz Kelly, Wendy McCammack and Esther Estrada all felt the monies could benefit the city in many other ways. Tearing down the entire neighborhood, leaving many families homeless, was not an option that seemed attractive for the three councilmembers. Wendy McCammack spoke of ways to make the people in that area homeowners with the money. Chaz Kelly fidgeted in frustration as he gazed upon the faces of the honor roll student and her sister. Esther Estrada thought long and hard before casting her vote in favor of what the residents wanted: no MECH.

Tobin Brinker, Dennis Baxter, Rikke Van Johnson and Fred Shorett were unreachable. For a moment, this reporter thought there was a glimmer of hope in Tobin Brinker as he kept looking to Patrick Morris for what appeared to be a change of heart, but it was not to be. Regardless of legalities or moralities, they voted to move forward with tossing these families out into the streets.

Apparently, there will be relocation benefits applied to the families tossed out; however, we all know how the government likes to pay it’s bills. It is doubtful that these residents will be paid enough to cover the cost of their relocations. Wendy McCammack is said to be searching for further assistance for the involved families.

Though surrounded by such tragedy as this, one thing is certain. To quote Chaz Kelly, “There is no Little Africa. This is the United States of America!” Little Africa is dead.
