Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) Refuses to Perform its Law Enforcement Duties According to DPS Charter

Listen to the Arizona Department of Public Safety Deputy Director David Felix in November 2007 “rationalize” and REFUSE TO TAKE MY POLICE REPORTS.   DPS Deputy Director responded to my written inquiries with his boss, DPS Director Roger Vanderpool.  After playing phone tag leaving several messages for each other, we finally had this conversation.

 

While another psychologist heard this tape (which is totally unedited) he exclaimed that DPS Deputy Director was trying to intimidate me and cited Felix’s vocal tone.  However, I think Felix is a marvelous “political communicator.”  What I mean by that is he knows exactly the ‘right’ words to say.

 

A point of information:  I did not learn about the two deaths at Arizona State Prison Complex—Lewis (ASPC–Lewis) until well after I had left ADOC in May 2006.  In fact, I heard about those directly from one of ADOC’s physicians a year after I was no longer an employee of ADOC in 2007.  Those were in addition to the other deaths at ASPC—Florence and St. Mary’s Hospital in Tucson.

 

When I tried to file my Police report with the Chandler Police Department as directed by FBI Duty Agent Burns in August 2007, Commander Christianson of the Chandler PD directed me to file regarding the inmate deaths (murders) with DPS.  According to Commander Christianson, it was required by the DPS Charter that DPS had to take my police reports or else the FBI would have to come in and take the Arizona Department of Public Safety over.

 

Pay particular attention to Deputy Director Felix’s veiled threats regarding the possibility of alleging “an improper relationship” between Governor Janet Napolitano and her cabinet level appointee ADOC Director Dora Schriro.

 

If we had a male governor appoint his mistress or wife to a cabinet level position, we would all recognize that for what it is:  Unprofessional conduct and improper.  It is nepotism.  However, when it is a lesbian couple, we all become “politically correct” and “sensitive.”  Heck, we need to call it what it is regardless of the sexual orientation of our Governor!

 

Stay tuned for more on the matter.

 

 

 

 

RFI No. 05-02 ARNOLD Complaint Screening Committee February 14, 2005

05-02sa

During this brief recording one can hear Dr. Susan Arnold address the Complaint Screening Committee.  At the end of this brief three person Complaint Screening Committee (CSC) discussion one may hear the vote to dismiss the charges against Dr. Arnold, including her failure to report. 

 

Consider this in light of the vote regarding the psychologist in question who married her inmate patient (see published recording of CSC 05-04AM.mp3). 

In my opinion, because Dr. Arnold was an employee of the State, the CSC voted to fall in step and voted to protect Dr. Arnold and hence the State and possibly ADOC.  While the CSC voted to drop the charges (see my report) against Dr. Arnold, in part because Dr. Anne Middaugh was no longer a State employee, the Board elected to pursue Dr. Middaugh.

 

The CSC voted with the exception of one individual to refer Dr. Middaugh case to the full Board.  The sole dissenter was public member Joseph Donaldson—Donaldson always votes to defend the State.  I suppose a successful “professional politician” knows he’d better support the State machinery and State employees least they not support him.
