Ozzie uniform 1


According to a real weird email exchange between Deplorable me, Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich, and later Deplorable John Christina, Ozzie wants to hold a “press conference” with Deplorable Rob Chase and Deplorable John Christina. It all stems from a real interesting story I’m investigating after receiving information about it from a number of different sources, and at this point appears as if there might be another taxpayer funded litigation against Spokane County and Sheriff Knezovich resulting from “Radicalized Hatred”, that of course remains to be seen, but a press conference would be outstanding so that the Citizens of Spokane County might be able to see where this is all headed.

It appears Mr. Christina has lawyered-up, so who knows where this is headed.

My response to Christina


What may seem weird to some folks, really isn’t weird to me but is simply a continuation on Ozzie’s part, which some describe as being under the color of law, to defame and discredit the truth seekers in his big “Basket of Deplorables”, at this point I happen to be at the top of his basket and the more truth that comes out the more my position elevates in the basket.

The following images of the email interaction which started out as a simple question to Ozzie as to whether or not Bob West had resigned from his handpicked CAB lead to a somewhat cryptic effort on Ozzie’s part to paint me as an inept, corrupt, drunken, prostitute using, supervisor fighting, dirty cop, whose peers had absolutely no respect for. Ozzie also has described me as “arrogant”, something I most certainly admit, but the rest of course is pure unadulterated BS. As I have mentioned a number of times in the past I was only disciplined once during my 26 years as a cop for a bar beef where I had been drinking while off duty in Colorado. After going into Chief Mangan’s office and admitting my conduct was way out of line Mangan told me he was going to give me the very same punishment he gave himself when he acted inappropriately which was a two-day suspension without pay. That’s it folks… yes, I did get suspended for two days but that’s it. I’m quite surprised Ozzie during his dirt digging quest to defame, hasn’t mentioned my two-day suspension. What’s funny is Ozzie surely has all of my performance evaluations, letters of commendation, and reference letters, if he doesn’t have all those I’d be more than happy to provide them to him.

Speaking of being arrogant, I thought you might be interested in my last evaluation prior to my retirement and my retirement reference letter.

Not bad for an inept, corrupt, drunken, prostitute using, supervisor fighting, dirty cop, whose peers had absolutely no respect for him…right Ozzie?

Yes Mr. Volz, “This is Mr. Breen” and Mr. Haskell is welcome to “weigh in” at any time!

This is Mr. Breen

I wonder if now that I posted portions of my personnel file there will be cryptic inference that I somehow made up the documents and forged the signatures, as it appears Ozzie was trying to infer regarding the anonymous letter Caleb Collier received which documented a portion of Ozzie’s friend Bob West’s misdeeds and turned out to be true.

Ozzie has well documented problems with many people, including me, but the biggest problem for Ozzie when it comes specifically to me is that I haven’t the least bit of fear of him or his efforts to intimidate me it’s just a continuing supply of the necessary comedic stuff we have seen from Ozzie year after year. Beyond that another problem he might have is that perhaps I’m not the “inept” investigator he would like people to believe I am. 😊

So, will Ozzie hold a big “press conference”? He does love those you know! 😊

Here is the email string, you can draw your own conclusions regarding Ozzie’s intent in starting this string and whether there ever will be a “press conference”.

Boy did that one ever intimidate the crap out of me! 😊

Maybe not “weird”, “crazy” might be better descriptor?



Thomas Paine

“This is just dirty politics. It’s been a dirty race, and it continues to be a dirty race,” Knezovich said.

Knezovich said he would look further into the details surrounding West’s termination from City Hall and leave it up to members of the Citizen’s Advisory Board to weigh in on whether he should be removed from the panel.

“All of this does not make Mr. Collier or Matt Shea look very good,” Knezovich said. “As of right now, I don’t see anything nefarious like they want to claim. I think when you’re dealing with somebody’s credibility and their reputation, you have to do your due diligence.”


Must have a large network of conspirators including Teresa Sanders (The City Administrator who publicly called Ozzie Knezovich a liar), Mayor Condon, Human Resources Director Chris Cavanaugh, Court Commissioner Howard Delaney, City Attorney Mike Ormsby, and many moles inside City of Spokane Government who secretly act under the leadership of Caleb Collier and Matt Shea.

Both Collier and Shea, if you were to believe Ozzie’s version of why West was fired, were somehow able to recruit and utilize West’s coworkers in the conspiracy, something they would have had to of done to secure the firing of Bob West.

Yes, that’s right aside from the using taxpayers time and resources to aid his daughters campaign Collier and Shea needed someone to make false claims against West of “Harassment”, “Bullying”, and Retaliation to get him fired.

Harrasment Bullying Retaliation


Not surprisingly Ozzie doesn’t “see anything nefarious” about Harassment, Bullying, and Retaliation when one of his minions is accused, I wonder how his recent Workplace Harassment training went…I didn’t buy a ticket, maybe I should have. I can’t help but wonder what explanation Ozzie will come up with when he does his “due diligence” and he takes a “look further into the details surrounding West’s termination”. We will have to see if Ozzie does in fact preform his “due diligence” when he looks into West’s termination like I do. Don’t forget to get all the emails and text messages Ozzie, they always tell a story. When I get them, I’ll send you copies if the City doesn’t provide them to you right way, it should be easy for the City to provide you with the same thing I requested, and the gals in the City Clerks Office are currently diligently working on my PRR which includes everything.

I’ve got to give the SR credit for accepting the challenge and writing a story regarding Robert West’s suspensions, and subsequent termination from City Employment, indications are the Inlander will follow suit.

Unfortunately, even though Ozzie specifically requested that I contact him for comment on my stories for the most part Ozzie will not respond or answer any questions I might have, so perhaps another reporter can get some answers.

As an example, I would ask Ozzie exactly what his role was in preparing the failed Anti-Harassment TPO to which Robert West signed, under the penalty of perjury, that Ozzie along with West’s daughter were Petitioners.

3 Petitioners

Another question I would pose to Ozzie is what he knows about the FBI Investigation into the “Bounty” on the life of himself, Robert West, and Brandi Peetz.

As for “due diligence”…

Beyond the questions above, I most certainly would have a number of other questions but I’m sure other reporters, if they so choose, can come up with many of their own.

Many, many moons ago I learned that the Devil is always in the details, something Ozzie is just beginning to learn.












Condon Stuckart



Why doesn’t other MSM media cover what I am able un-cover?

That is a question you would have to ask them!

Although without question local reporters follow my stories and are aware I have excellent sources and a pot full of factual data and documents, IMO either the reporters or their editors don’t think what I have come up with is newsworthy and of interest to the general public or perhaps it is simply a matter of not wanting to do the work it takes. To be fair other media sources have belatedly followed up on information I have developed and reported, including but not limited to the Cotton/Straub Affair, The McMurtrey Cover-up, to name just two, but apparently the fact that a City Employee was fired for using City resources to further his daughters election campaign must not be considered newsworthy by the MSM even though my stories regarding Bob West have been widely disseminated on the internet and in some cases there have been calls for further investigation.

As an Investigative Reporter I would have thought that given the coverage of the Spokane City Council’s override of the Condon veto regarding election finance reform within the City Limits the fact that a City Employee was ultimately fired for among other things “the inappropriate use of City resources and premises to conduct campaign activities” as well as the Ordinance appearing to exempt Unions of which the majority of City Employees like Bob West are members, and many of whom have access to privileged and confidential information the Bob West my Bob West stories would have some newsworthy relevance, but at this point in some circles, apparently not.

I would suspect that there will likely be some type of costly litigation taking place questioning the authority of the Spokane City Council to codify more restrictive finance reform than SCOTUS has established. What might come up if a litigation takes place will be interesting. It will also be interesting to see if the City Council takes steps to safeguard future attempts to inappropriately use City resources and premises to conduct campaign activities, including inappropriately and perhaps illegally accessing restricted law enforcement information.


Bottom line…I can’t give you a definitive answer…ask them!
