WHY THIS ISSUE IS IMPORTANT
The first responsibility of Sheriff is to ensure, not only that citizens safety is protected, but also, their rights are protected.
Ed Uehling of Las Vegas, Nevada tells his story of how he came to the realization that Clark County Sheriff, Joe Lombardo isn’t fit to be Sheriff, let alone governor of Nevada.
THE POLICE REPORTS
The police reports authored by the arresting officers border on the absurd.
The first video clearly shows Mr. Uehling being assaulted by the initial officer he came into contact with.
Let me remind you, filming any public servant as they perform their duties in public – IS A CONSTITUTIONALLY PROTECTED RIGHT.
VIDEO EVIDENCE DOESN’T JIVE WITH CRIMINAL LVMPD COMPLAINTS
The second video clearly shows a second LVMPD officer ording Mr. Uehling off private property under the threat of arrest and/or being taken into custody and is then immediately placed into custody and arrested for exercising his first amendment rights once following officer orders and stepping onto public property.
The Criminal Complaint (below), as you can see, fails to mention anything that occured on Mr. Uehling’s videos. Additionally, the authorities have, to this point, refused to produce the body-cam footage of the LVMPD officers involved.
ALL CORRUPTION BEGINS WITH LITTLE WHITE LIES
As you can clearly see, Criminal Complaints don’t mention anything that took place in Mr. Uehling’s video footage.
First, Mr. Uehling walked to the corner of Oneida and Desert Inn Rd E from his home about two blocks away.
Second, after being assaulted by the initial LVMPD officer, Mr. Uehling moved back to a position on private property where he could still safely exercise his Constitutional right to film the traffic stop.
Lastly, there’s no mention in the report that Mr. Uehling was ordered off private property under color of law with the threat of immediate arrest or detainment.
Again, none of these incidents are mentioned anywhere in the criminal complaint filed by the LVMPD officers involved.
WHY THIS ISSUE IS IMPORTANT TO TOM HECK
I was 18 years old when I joined the United States Air Force and took my oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. That oath is still in force.
Government overreach is at an all-time high in this country. Aren’t you sick and tired of it? I am.
Las Vegas crime statistics show Clark County, Nevada is now nearly twice as dangerous as New York City, NY. Maybe if Joe Lombardo’s “Corporate Culture” focused more on crime prevention than assaulting the elderyly, maybe, just maybe, Clark County could get a handle on its crime issue. Am I wrong?
The only way we improve governement is to call out those who violate citizen’s rights and hold them accountable.
And, as governor, thaty’s exactly what I’ll do, regardless of the political fallout.
