To make a long story short, I was on my way home from work on Friday 2-25-00, officer D. Cantrell pulled me over for making a "wide turn."She thought I had smoked marijuana in the past 24 hours because my pupils appeared large, and told me to step out the vehicle. I had told her I was taking Sudafed for a cold I had at the time and asked if that could be a reason why my pupils were large. I also told her I had taken a Dexatrim earlier that morning. She ruled everything out and had no doubt in her mind that I was "stoned." She administered the Walk and Turn, One Leg Stand and the Finger to nose test and several others. I felt I had passed them all.

She then arrested me for a DUI for drugs. I took a urineanlysis at the site and was not worried about it. She kept trying to get me to admit that I smoked marijuana. Cantrell and some of the other officers kept making jokes about the situation. One of the many comments she made was, "Have you ever done crack or heroin to lose weight," talking about the fact that I had taken Dexatrim. All the officers laughed at her comment. I felt that I was harassed by officer Cantrell and the other officers that night.

On March 30, 2000 the results from the urineanlysis came back. I was tested for six drugs, including cannibas, and everything came back negative.

Cantrell never mentioned in the police report that I had taken Sudafed or that I even had a cold. She made it seem like I was walking into walls, stoned out of my mind.
I feel that officers need to have more knowledge about the effects of over the counter medication. If she didn't know, it is known that Sudafed is used to make illegal drugs, such as "crank." That could have been that reason for my dialated pupils.

I'm an eyewitness, and not just ONCE. And you apparently can't read.

AUTHOR: Jim - (U.S.A.)

Accusations? Hearsay? Minorities?

Nice to read some kind of local right-wing
slag heap lies from a demento who doesn't know
any better, and who is likewise, apparently,
completely blind.

I am white. Most of my friends in Mesa were
Mormon. This has nothing to do with basic
issues of perjury and dishonesty, which are
simple, straightforward facts of everyday
life in Mesa which the repeated lies and
coverups of this demented excuse for
a police department in no way defuse.

I have SEEN and can provide police reports
by Cantrell with obvious lies and
inconsistencies that any seven-year-old
could prove. I have no idea whether she
is a Mormon. I KNOW she is a liar
and perjurer and regularly filed
fraudulent police reports. And I KNOW
she is still on the force.

Maybe 80% of these people are at least
competent, and perhaps 70% of them lie
only under pressure.

Questions, oh gutless and witless one:
(1. when was the last time a Mesa cop
suffered as much as chapped lips in
"injury" protecting a "Gentile" citizen,
or for that matter, anyone else? (2. How
many major PROVEN scandals has Mesa P.D.
and associated Maricopa County and Municipal
Offices had in the last, say, eight years?
And how many of those do nincompoop apologists
like you think are caused by "minorities"?
I love your s****. /> It proves the point better than
anything else. These cops may not ALL be
crooks...what I know is this: NONE of them
have ever been disciplined for major crimes
for which any ordinary citizen would
suffer penalties from years in prison
to execution (death!).

Yes, the have a new chief. Yes, the new
city manager has slapped a few wrists for
hate-mongering e-mails, obscene letters,
visiting porn sites of various sorts. Fine.
But these people do NOT protect Mesa.

They protect the tight cadre of inbred,
degenerate filth they have protected
since "Deseret Days", and that's ALL they
do.

Read the city chart, simpleton! It gives
way too much power to UNELECTED civil servants.
That's how a scumbag minority stays in power
for generations.

Accusations not doing a lot of good....

AUTHOR: David - (U.S.A.)

Included in the dozens of responses to this topic are insults, baseless accusations, and a lot of "I saw," "I heard," and "Someone told me" allegations. It isn't doing much good to compare Mormons to the mafia, or an officer to the gestapo. Leaving out some of the trash might lend a little more legitimacy to some of the claims here.

Some people here are treating the situation as if every member of the Mesa PD is corrupt and out to arrest law-biding citizens to avoid the real danger of busting the criminals which are busy selling drugs on our children's playgrounds; Except, of course, the minorities, who are probably all first-rate cops being denied any sort of promotion or advancement by the evil Mormons. Does it appear that there is a serious problem? Yes, but I have been a Mesa resident all my life, driving, shopping, dining, and going to school for several years in Mesa, and have never received a ticket or been accused of drug use. I was pulled over once, and let go with a warning. No, I didn't have to tell the cop I was Mormon, or show him my secret Mormon ring displaying my cult membership status. I know white Mormons with good backgrounds that have been denied entrance into the academy. Out of all my friends and family(while I don't claim to be the world's most popular guy, I work as a movie theatre manager, and as such meet a lot of people and have made a lot of friends in Mesa,) I have never heard of any horror stories like the ones posted here. Does that mean they are not true? Of course not! I don't believe they would have been posted here for fun, but when a maximum of maybe 100 people have voiced their concerns here, it would certainly indicate that the problem is not all encompassing. There are approximately half a million people in Mesa, 100 makes .02% of that population. I know that not everyone with a problem has come here to complain, but on the same token the 100 number is being extremely generous.

The moral of the story is that you are only going to hurt your claims by including the subjective garbage and insults. No major media outlet is going to recognize and refer readers/listeners to a website to listen to insults and a lot of general accusations. It sounds like there are some serious and legitimate problems here, but it should also be recognized that there are plenty of good officers on the force as well. Someone earlier suggested that no Mesa officer has ever put their life on the line because they are too busy shooting first any time they get into trouble. This is nothing but an insult and destroys the credibility of the poster and the complaint.

Attack the problem, but leave the general insults out of it. Living in Mesa, I know plenty of Mormons that would jump on the chance to remove the kind of leadership referenced here. Mormons don't enjoy the stereotype of being an elitist group only looking out for their own, and would love the chance to voice their disapproval to someone who appears to be doing just that. I am having trouble imaging Mormons responding in the desired manner to the writings on this report, as they will probably be too offended by the accusations contained herein to even finish reading it. Rather than taking another readers advice and focus on bringing out the non-Mormon vote to rid the city of the Mormon leadership filth, why not find a legitimate way to voice the concerns and bring out the group that has the most reason to be concerned (the Mormons)? I have not seen any grass-roots movement, I have not received letters in the mail, and I have not seen billboards on the street warning citizens of this corruption. Someone is going to have to spend some money and take a legitimate stand against what is happening. I'm not suggesting complaining to the PD, as it appears that doesn't exactly produce the desired effects, but how about a grass-roots campaign to get rid of some of these city officials that are at the root of the problem? As I stated before, if you make the case to Mormons that a Mormon in office is making them look bad, they will be more than happy to turn out the vote to remove them. I have lived in Mesa for a long time. I read the paper and watch the news, but I have never heard of many of the claims posted on this site. I would imaging the other half a million people in the city are in the same boat. You can't accuse an entire city of ignoring the concerns if you aren't doing anything to voice them. Someone suggested a boycott, why not? How about picketing, marching, or otherwise demonstrating? Obviously people aren't mad enough to take a real stand against what is happening. That does more to harm the legitimacy of the complaints than anything else. Bravo to those who file suits, protest, contact the media, and do anything else to voice their concerns. Shame on those whose actions do nothing more than harm the very cause they are "fighting" for.

Chronology is a bit confused, Steve.

AUTHOR: Jim - (U.S.A.)

Examine what amounts to my "internet history",
and realized: I never posted anything, anywhere
on the internet until late 2001, and nothing
on this site that I can find until well into
2002. That's around four years...

I suspect Steve is presuming by inference
a great deal of his own fantasies. The key
report he refers to was written quite some
time before, but posted in August of 2002...
so I guess what he's doing is presuming a
lot of people who may have similar beefs
are me, under some sort of disguise.

What is that word for a person who imagines
all sorts of conspiracies?

For example, I am NOT Veronica...

Her report dates from quite some time
before I had my own "online" computer.

And "Harry" from Tucson is a former neighbor
whose slightly edited e-mail I posted, with
his permission, in another report, and
duly accredited it. And "Harry" is his
actual first name.

How strange!

#4 Consumer Suggestion

Huh? What? Steve, you're hilarious. Useless, but hilarious.

AUTHOR: Jim - (U.S.A.)

No idea who you are, Steve. Nor am I
interested. I do note you're kind of
"haunting" and "following" me around the
web, and I notice you never have any
evidence or any facts, nor do you even
quote anyone who does.

I do "quote postings" cut and paste on a lot
of these websites, including newspaper
documentation directly, and I have also
gotten permission from correspondents to
use various e-mails and other documents
related to the topics under discussion.
I have also encouraged friends, several
of whom used my computer, to enter their
own thoughts and experiences on this and other
sites. These are usually directly
attributed, albeit in
the "cut and paste" format, it not always
real obvious. I guess that might be what you
are referring to... At least, that's
the only sense I can make out of your
chronically mis-spelled diabtribes.

Cantrell, by the way, is still very much
on the force, and anyone else I refer
to regularly is generally still in office.
And the recurring pattern of fraud
and perjury in the courts in Mesa,
plus the studious efforts of the local
crooked cops to avoid any real problems
or actual criminals (like themselves,
for example) has been noted in these
annals hundreds of times.

And no, I do not spend endless hours on
the internet, grinding old axes. But there
are few chronic miscreants who have been
repeatedly identified, about whom the
scions of power in Mesa and Maricopa
County have opted to do NOTHING.

Regular, unpunished vindictive and perjuring
prosecutions need to be addressed. If they
aren't--and it could be anywhere--entire
communities lose faith not just in
government, but in fairness in general.
Apparently, that has never occurred to you.

This is not MY original posting, nor are
some of the others where similar remarks
occur. But I did meet Cantrell, and she
did perform just as many others here and
elsewhere have noted. That is: with
TOTAL disregard for truth.

If you like police officers like
that--and Mesa is awash in them--just
say so.

jim the idiot whackjob strikes again

AUTHOR: Steve - (U.S.A.)

this guy has been enthralling us for 6 yrs with his fictional yarns. 99% of everything he posts is bullshit and most of his "targets" dont even hold office anymore and are retired or dead. Marc, be careful cuz he also will steal your name and post his drivelous commentary using YOUR name. if you look at the wind-baggage on this topic, it's plain to see where he has used many different names with the same ignorant paranoid opinions. One of my favorite aliases he uses is "Harry Tucson". This town has the same problems as any fast-growing community but unfortunately with population growth also come the freaks and nutcases. Mesa is no different. As far as Sheriff Arpaio is concerned, Maricopa County elected this jackass, not just Mesa and its 200,000 voters- but also Phoenix,Scottsdale and many other cities and well over 5 million residents. As far as the sheepfu--er is concerned, this guy is a firefighter,not law enforcement.

Jim, It's all the fault of the Police force?

AUTHOR: Marc - (U.S.A.)

Mesa's crime rate is rising as it is in all of Arizona. I think it's because it's the fastest growing city and that means all the dregs follow the money. You are over-run with illegal Mexicans and and all the murders I hear of there are in the Mexican areas, committed by other Mexicans that prey on the working families. Then you have the Meth problem like everywhere else. Add to that the usual welfare-sucking shitbums smelling the bennies of a huge and growing tax base, and you have the current situation. Mesa used to be a beautiful place, but once the word got out, the usual suspects discovered it and eventually you will be a shithole like LA, unless the people are ready to take it back. Enjoy it while you can, but it's not the cops' fault.

Cantrell is a fraudulent, perjuring cop.

AUTHOR: Jim - (U.S.A.)

Cantrell is a fraudulent, perjuring cop.
So is Arpaio. This is typical of the valley,
especially typical of the East Valley, and it
is the SOUL of ratholes like Mesa, where n**i
scumbags pervade the police department and
city government. It gets even MORE demented,
though.

This is NOT from an area Nutsi-friendly
"newspaper" like the TRIBUNE or REPUBLIC:


Deputy Fire Chief Faces Indecency Charge
Trouble Viewing?









Leroy Donald Johnson is accused of abusing a sheep.


Phoenix, AZ -- Leroy Donald Johnson was caught this weekend in a barn with his pants down, literally, according to a sheriff's office report.

"You caught me ... I tried to (expletive) your sheep," Johnson told his neighbor, according to the report.

But the Mesa Fire Department deputy fire chief changed his story when a sheriff's deputy arrived on his doorstep minutes later, denying anything happened.

Johnson, 52, was jailed on suspicion of disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing after the neighbor told investigators he found Johnson, unzipped and holding a sheep down on its side.

That's the sanitized version. The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office report released Monday night is a little more graphic.

Johnson's neighbor told sheriff's deputies he was called home Saturday afternoon when his 13-year-old daughter saw Johnson drag one of their sheep into a barn.

The teenager said Johnson had first knocked on the front and back door of the home in the 1200 block of East Catclaw Street, in a county island in Gilbert, before grabbing the small gray lamb, records showed.

One of the deputies noted that Johnson had bloodshot eyes and smelled of alcohol, and neighbors who confronted him said he admitted everything.

According to the deputy's report, "(The owner) took me into the back yard and showed me where he and (neighbor) pulled up. He took me through the corral gate and I saw the victim for the first time. She was a small gray lamb about three feet tall and four feet long."

The men then told the deputy they walked over to the small barn, opened the door and "saw Leroy holding the lamb down on its side in the hay with his pants down trying to have sex with it. That's when he made the statement about (expletive) the lamb."

The men said Johnson stood up and zipped up his pants.

"The sheep ran out of the barn at that point," the report says.

Johnson apologized, according to the report, and said he'd had "too much to drink."

The Mesa Fire Department placed Johnson, on paid leave Monday pending an internal investigation. Johnson, deputy chief of technical services, has been with the Mesa Fire Department for nearly 26 years.

Assistant Fire Chief Mary Cameli said Johnson has been an "exemplary" employee with a spotless personnel record.

"We were all very surprised by this," Cameli added.

Johnson did not return a call for comment Monday.

When confronted by a deputy at his home, Johnson initially denied the incident, saying he had been at his neighbor's house to talk about annexation.

Johnson said he went into the barn after hearing noises. The deputy said to him, "I believe something more than that happened," and offered help.

Johnson responded, "I probably do need some help, but I don't know if this is the time or place for it," according to the report.

When asked how the animal got into the barn, Johnson said, "I'm not going there," then asked if he was going to be arrested and demanded to know his legal options.

He continued to deny that anything happened in the barn and was arrested.

"I think it's disgusting," Sheriff Joe Arpaio said. "I think of Ghandi who said you judge the morality of a country by the way they treat their animals. . . . I do look at (bestiality) as some type of animal cruelty."

While no one sane accepts anything Arpaio or
Cantrell says as true, we DO regard him,
generally, as an expert on abuse, which,
along with demented publicity, is his
line of work.

By the way, despite vigiliant cretins
like these, crime in Mesa is STILL rising.
That's because you basically have Police
who are full-time, professional criminals
dominating your police force, and a two-bit
cheap copy of Benito Mussolini, completely
fraudulent and incompetent to boot, as
a "County Sheriff".

Move to Mesa.

AUTHOR: Patrick - (U.S.A.)

Marc,

If you do ever move back this way, make sure you move to wonderful Mesa! [/sarcasm off] If Arpaio wasn't bad enough, the folks of this town have to also deal with unchecked crime, meth labs in every apartment complex, coyotes smuggling illegal immigrants across the border, etc. And what do the city cops do? Well, they are good at shooting and killing mentally disturbed teenagers holding a 3 inch knife and threatening suicide!

Anyways, come next spring I am out of this dust bowl and moving back to Florida for good, never to return. At least I've had the fortune to live in two halfway decent towns here (Chandler and Gilbert).

Actually Patrick, a family member works with him.

AUTHOR: Marc - (U.S.A.)

Not directly, but does come into contact with him. From what he tells me, Arpaio is a real good man with a tough job. I'm in Peoria and Phoenix a couple times a year because my entire family lives there, from way back when Mesa and Tempe were model towns and Peoria was feedlots and cotton fields. It amazes me how safe the place is, thanks in large part to the police force. If the city air wasn't so damned polluted I'd move back. I am most impressed with the "posse" you have, and how your citizens can carry guns and defend themselves if need be. The communist government of Hawaii would never allow that, although there are rumblings about it from time to time. Until then, we'll continue to be victims, calling 911 only to be put on hold, and release criminals instead of putting them into a tent city. You don't know how good you have it.

VOTE! AND FIGHT! That's how things get changed!

AUTHOR: Jim - (U.S.A.)

Rick Romley is no longer County Attorney.
Of the great council of fraudulent liars
and charlatans and crackpots who "led"
Mesa and Maricopa County eight or nine years
ago, only the most moronic of them all,
the bogus Joe Arapaio, remains in power.
So, are things getting better? Is government
and especially police departments, prosecutor's
offices, and the jail system making maybe some
NOMINAL effort to perform without massive
perjury and dishonesty every day, and MAYBE
to, once in a great while, think of the
needs of citizens and, maybe, something to
do with law and order, instead of their
criminally corrupt agenda of bribery and
power brokering and a*s kissing? Nope.
Not in Mesa, especially.

Cantrell, the professional liar and mass
perjurer, never even got a slap on the wrist
for what must be thousands of bogus cases
and reports and testimony. In fact, she got
promoted. The Mayor, Keno Hawker, the one
we all though might "reform" the scum at
Messa P.D. and get rid of some of the worst
of the liars, thieves, and criminals effectively
added to the coverups and made everything
much worse, and is retiring unscathed.

Basically, in Mesa, and in Maricopa County,
generally, malfeasance, perjury, crime,
bribery, and "the LDS connection" lead
to promotions, high income, and never any
real trouble. There are no ethics
or reforms in this sewer. Why, that would
disturb the turds, and involve that
disgusting "E" word, as opposed to
"Tempe Recommends"... (the "E" word
is "ethics", a discipline totally unknown
to these people, much like "truth"...)

This is what happens when only 25% of
a community votes, and when a demented
collection of pukebuckets in local
government--Charles Luster springs
immediately to mind--can enforce
censorship in the hick town media.
Thus, nobody is informed anyway, and
much of the population is unaware there
is a problem, secure in the belief it
will never in any way impinge on them

You vote and you fight, that's how
you get rid of parasitic criminals
like the ones in Mesa. If you don't,
you wear these overweight scum around
your neck like obese millstones, and
in the end, will pay MUCH more.

Did more checking

AUTHOR: Leslie - (U.S.A.)

Read this long ago, and as a former (at that
time, a CURRENT) resident of Mesa, made a kind
of point of following along the careers
of Cantrell and various other perjuring
miscreants on Mesa P.D.'s staff.

The incompetent, corrupt captain who botched
a drug raid I witnessed in 1994 has retired
(he never had to answer for his errors or
corruption).

Officer Tim Gaffney, a chronic perjurer,
was "SpokesCop" for Mesa P.D., has
apparently been "kicked upstairs". How
appropriate that a chronic liar became
the "mouthpiece" for an organization OF
chronic liars! Gaffney was known
for ridiculous lies on DUI reports,
and in one case well-known to me, claimed
that a friend, in a very nearly worn out
van then already twenty years old,
somehow accelerated to about sixty
miles an hour in about twenty feet!
Try that some time! And he signed his
name to that!

Cantrell is on the "fast track" to
promotion. And by the way, the above
stories are quite understated.

The officer who perjured me (I can prove
that, and was foolish enough to
try to pursue it) at a 1998 felony
trial (the jury laughed aloud at his
nonsense, and I was pronounced "innocent",
by the way), and who also directly
falsified police reports and lied about
just about everything related to the case
to make it appear as if I, a crime
victim, was in fact, the "perpetrator"
of a crime that never happened, has
also been promoted and given raises.
His name is Charles T. Lines. He has
at least one brother on the force as well.
He is an LDS church member.

Of the fifteen or so officers who
questioned me at various punitive stops
1997-2003, I can only verify that four
have been promoted. They were all apparently
under some kind of "stop on sight" orders
because of the department's knowledge that
I was looking for an attorney willing to
pursue what amounted to a harassment case.
I never found such an attorney, by the way.

The two Mesa Officers I knew and trusted
because of the work I saw them do, and who
seemed to have been eminently honorable
men, both left the force, one under some
pressure from his "brethren" for NOT
defending the acts of one of them in a
gunfire incident, the other apparently
simply came to hate his job and dislike
the political nature of the department,
and left the area very quietly. When I
last spoke with him, he said he never wanted
anything to do with "law enforcement" again
once he left Mesa. His other remark?
"I felt like a professional liar!"

Does this seem like a pattern?

Oh. Dennis Donna, no pillar of honesty,
and deeply entrenched in the Department's
power structure, is resigning effective
12-31-05. One of the criticisms frequently
heard in local police union circles was
that he instrumented a code of ethics for
officers. Apparently, they would prefer
not even having such things written on
paper, let alone having to adhere to one.

I made it my business to follow this woman's career

AUTHOR: Bob Katsch - (U.S.A.)

I had a problem like this with this same woman. So have hundreds of others.

I made it my business to follow her career, spotted as it was, so obviously, with thousands of lies and falsifications.

Guess what? She is now a sergeant, and apparently this was partially a reward for "back-burnering" her sexual harassment complaint.

She also gave some kind of diatribe at a motorcycles for women thing for a local Harley-Davidson dealer in mesa.

This is an environment where liars and cheats not only succeed, they are officially sanctioned and advanced.

Fact: the city of Mesa, which has thousands
of totally bogus cases on its books, has never ONCE disciplined a police officer for lying about a citizen or falsifying a police report. In fact, these scumbags consider it a plus.

When the lilly-livered cowards are not murdering children, that is.

Jody must also be blind...

AUTHOR: Enders - (U.S.A.)

I wonder where Jody lives or lived. I was
in Mesa until 2003, lived there 15 years,
and it was getting continually uglier, both
literally and figuratively, between what
the MAGGOTS who run city government were doing
to destroy downtown in their backfiring, insane
demented attempts to "beautify" the cesspool...

Little, crummy, "cookie cutter" "exploitation" houses, which would not pass code anywhere in the REAL United States, sold at absurb prices by the most demented cretin developers I have ever encountered, with NOT A CARE to the fact that most of them would be piles of rubble in a couple of years.

It's a town that is EXTREMELY UGLY, getting uglier, going deeper in debt, and failing miserably, and this silly-assed fantasy world where the n**i criminals who run the town are trying to blame ANYBODY ELSE--EVERYBODY ELSE--is just HILARIOUS.

Make a list of the responsible institutions with
real income base that have moved out--Motorola, the Champlin Fighter Museum, GM proving grounds, hundreds of others--and the crooks from phone scam operators to sleazebag land developers who have moved IN and you see the atmosphere these dirtballs are creating...

Illegals all over the main business arteries, obviously there to provide cheap labor for the local "gentry"...

Jody, what the HELL are you talking about? I have seen prettier towns in Bosnia, WHILE the fighting was still going on.

This Cantrell bozo is just another of the monumental fake "operators" who dwell in the netherworld of chicanery, lying and deceiving for a living, and the scum who employ here are the real problem.

I am so glad I left!

Oh, and in case you wonder, I, too, had a "CLOSE ENCOUNTER OF THE B.S. KIND" with that lying piece of dung. May she burn in hell!

Don't visit Mesa AZ at all! If you live there, MOVE!

I say from a Metropolitan Police Department like the ones in Miami and Las Vegas, and kick these crooked agencies out. That may solve some of the problems. But that's besides the point.

Just simply boycott the city completely. Let's see how their government likes its residents who are tired of their corrupt government move elsewhere.

And as for the officer in question, I'd say fire her and throw her in the clink. The one important rule to go by when you are a police officer ANYWHERE in this country, is "To Protect and To Serve". Officer Cantrell has not done so, judging the reports I have seen here.

Interesting about Cantrell....

AUTHOR: Bob - (U.S.A.)

The more one learns, the more perspectives
change. Cantrell is DEANA CANTRELL, and if
you search the web long enough, you will find
she was the alleged "victim" of "sexual
harassment" by another Mesa P.D. officer, but
(swallowing her "pride") dropped the "case"
and decided to stay with the department and
not "make waves".

She has a long history of perjury, obstruction
of justice, falsification of police reports,
just general lying and exaggeration, and so
therefore pretty much fits right in with the
Department for which she works.

But SHE, TOO seems to have a complaint with
these s***k.

Point: this department needs reform so radical and severe as to constitute a revolution. If you think this is funny, look up some of the thugs on the lieutenant's list and their various shennanigans.

Which, in turn, means the entire city administation, whose narrow vested interests are the ONLY incentives the organization has which mean anything, has to be flushed down the nearest toilet.

Cantrell is revolting, but she is just another symptom, and it seems, has become just another victim of the sewer of corruption that is Mesa.

I used to vacation in Mesa every winter

AUTHOR: Bernie - (U.S.A.)

Coincidence? I don't think so.

Funny about coincidences. I used to
vacation in Mesa every winter. About this
same time, I got stopped by this SAME liar.
My whole drinking, last twenty years, is maybe
a glass of champagne New Year's Eve, maybe a
sip of cognac on my birthday, and I skipped that
plenty of times, also.

I had some stuff and a bottle of codeine
cough syrup (not mine, my wife's name was on
the bottle) in the car, and was going back,
when my tire started to make noise coming back
from Superstition Mall. I pulled off first
chance I got, and got out of the car with my
glasses on. Cantrell pulled up right behind me
while I was bending over my tire, running my little flash light around the wheel well trying
to inspect my tire. I was startled.

Turns out, I had a big wad of gum stuck on
one front tire, and a large stone in the tread of
the other, but it took me a day to find that
out because of the hassle this miserable, lying
sonofabitch lunatic caused me. None of it worked, but I actually had to make TWO court
appearances. Again, I am near 70 then. No alcohol, no drugs. That bottle of cough syrup
was UNOPENED, officer Cantrell. And the name
on it was my wife's, stupid!

Now, this woman cost me some hours and a few
dollars, because of course, she was lying on
every line of this damned "police report". This
judge Eppich, he also is SCUM, he would not let
me even explain myself or state any evidence. All these asswipes are looking for is MONEY. So when the tests finally come back, I tell this dirty judge : "I will sue this city, and never come back. You are a pack of liars!" Well, I never come back. Cost your filthy town $20,000-30,000 a year. And I talk eight or ten friends into the same kind of thing. We do not do any crimes, but apparently because we are not full-time from Mesa, and we are not Mormon, we get ripped off by these liars.

I could not find an attorney who would sue
these bastards, and now it is maybe too late.
But I already keep over a million dollars out
of the city's hands, and others will do the
same. Hope they choke on this kind of dreck.

Interesting comments...at once wrong and idiotic. ..city, run by the most greedy and dishonest criminals

AUTHOR: Peter - (U.S.A.)

I left Mesa recently, after years, largely
because the city was becoming so ugly and dangerous, and also, of course, because of
the widespread corruption, which is pretty much
the cause of the other problems.

Let me add, I am an upstanding citizen.
I did have several run-ins with corrupt local
officials and police, none of which resulted in
arrest, but ALL of which were fabrications.

This was a bogus city, run by the most greedy
and dishonest criminals I have ever encountered,
practicing corruption on a level I though impossible, save perhaps somewhere in Bulgaria
or maybe South America. I took a terrible
financial beating on my home, but the drug
dealers everywhere, unmolested by the police, and
an ugly incident in my neighborhood, made even
uglier by the "police" incompetence scared me
to the point where I HAD to leave, for fear of
physical danger of many kinds. My kids, in
particular, were bored to death with a
school system which seemed to be the worst I have
ever seen, and who encountered vicious
discrimination of several kinds (no, we are NOT
from a racial minority, I hasten to add), from some very strange quarters, because they were
"outsiders"...

I very much respect the Mormon/LDS religion,
and many of my best friends were of that faith.
Most of them, however, were deeply ashamed of the
legacy certain member of and associates with
the very tight "old guard" of that religion had left this dying community.

Unfortunately, I see no improvement coming.

Residents here need to identify the causes
of the blight, the movement of businesses and
responsible citizens OUT of the community,
the horrible epidemic of crack cocaine and
methampethamine, and it can only be placed
squarely at the door of a city administration
skilled at collecting fines and taxes, but
as deathly afraid as their wimpy police
department of actually taking any kind of a
stand against hardcore crime. Such a
combination of cowardice and incompetence can
be neither ignored nor changed by normal
means. It cannot, in fact, be tolerated.

I guess the most frightening thing that
happened wasn't all that violent, but it was
becoming a pattern. In a nice, middle-class
neighborhood, I started noticing signs of
break-in attempts (and called the police for
some, getting NO response) and finding
hypodermic needles almost every day, in gutters,
yards, and parks.

If you live in Mesa and see someone
breaking the law, don't call the police:
the perpetrator may be one, or may be one
of their employers. And make no mistake
at all: when this happens, it is ALWAYS
the fault of those who do nothing.

I tried to do something, got beaten down
for it, and finally gave up. Mesa is a
hopeless community.

I think Mark #1 and #2 and this idiot Lynn
are comedy writers. Nobody who lives in Mesa
or shops there or who has to deal with this
place could possibly be that demented.

I am 63 years old, and I ride a Harley and
I drive an old Porsche. I have been stopped and
harassed 35 times in Mesa, exactly ONCE for a
legitimate reason (I had a tail light out in the
356). They don't like my hair, they don't like
my vehicles, they kept stopping me a block from
my house, on all sorts of ridiculous bullshit,
which amounted to "looking inappropriate for
a Mormon neighborhood"...once it was stripped of
all the crap and lies these scumbags made up.

Notice how carefully both Lynn and this other feeble minded sonofabitch avoid answering any of
the real complaints of the citizens. Oh, Lynn,
what a great one she has! She says: "The problem with this city and it's (sic) police department is morons like you (sic) not it's (sic) officers!" Well, now we know we have someone
can neither spell nor punctuate, and once we
read this lying, filthy dribble, we know she must
be a Mesa cop...albeit their main problem
is THE TOTAL INABILITY TO TELL THE TRUTH, EVEN
WHEN LYING BENEFITS THEM NOTHING, BECAUSE THEY
KNOW THE LOCAL POLICE ORGANIZATIONS, THEIR
SUPERIORS, PROSECUTORS, AND OTHERS WILL NOT
EVEN DISCIPLINE THEM FOR CRIMINAL PERJURY.

The problem is us, Lynn? No, it's blind,
illiterate simpletons like you who figure a lying cop is JUST FINE... Which suggests to me that
you are a LYING PERJURING MESA POLICE OFFICER, i.e. and to wit: a typical local cop. Mesa P.D. is bullshit, in the business solely of protecting
themselves and their jobs, no matter who they
have to inconvenience OR KILL to do so. There are many complaints similar to this one on this and other sites, #21215 dealing directly with Cantrell and various other figments of her demented imagination.

SIMPLE FACT, LYNN AND MARK: The bullshit about
"bad apples" and "complaints" etc. is interesting,
but any organization which would employ persons
of this ilk is inherently SINGULARLY EVIL and
incapable of ethical conduct.

You will never hear a solid code of ethics
even under discussion in relation to Mesa P.D.

Oh, Mark? You are either stupid or a liar, or
both. I DO DRIVE CAREFULLY AND OBEY THE LAW.
It did me NO good. I was stopped once for "slowing down excessively before turning"
(I was doing about 15 in a 25 zone, and by the way, the preceding is neither illegal nor in any way discouraged) and various other insanities, often used as a bogus lever to search my car. I am not in the slightest concerned what the filthy scum who act as paid informers to your DIRTBAG colleagues in Mesa P.D. may have said, I have never been involved in either the drug trade or trafficking in stolen or otherwise unlawful merchandise of any kind, and yet I have been rousted by these jerkfaced pissants any number of times for that, with no result whatsoever. I do restore automobiles, I do have several garages and storage places full of parts, but I will tell you this: if another Mesa cop "undercover" tries to sell me stolen crap, I am NOT going to react with the sense of humor I showed the last few times. My reaction MAY be violent. You scum have just about worn out my patience.

Fortunately, because of the absurd and moronic actions of Cantrell and others, I have left Mesa, but the last time I was back someone tried to sell me stolen car radios. Guys, I restore classics from the 1930's, if you want to set up or entrap someone, you should
try to learn to find something appropriate!!!
It was such an obvious police setup, frankly,
and what is hilarious is, this bozo walked right
past a couple of actual "fences" and approached me. Why you jerks have focussed on me, I do not
know, but just to be safe and avoid you cowardly
scumbags, I have decided I will NEVER return to Mesa, sold my house (I thought maybe that was what you wanted, I sold it to an LDS member in good standing), and left a while ago, and yet
you persist. Stupidity and corruption tend to
go together, I guess.

Drive carefully and obey the law? In Mesa?
Your cops are predators and liars and cowards, and
you will notice none of the sniveling, weakwilled
little pansies ever directly answers anything
except with some kind of b.s. smokescreen about
how those who loathe them "hate law

Cantrell is only a symptom and a microcosm

AUTHOR: Defense Attorney - (U.S.A.)

I have been at the "sharp end" of this
ridiculous pack of thieves and cowards more
than once, and had it not been for the
willingness of my colleagues to crush them
to expose their criminal conduct, they would
very likely have killed or incarcerate me,
of which, frankly, I would prefer the former.

Cantrell is merely a symptom, but an
accurate and summary one. This entire bushel
of apples has been rotten for a very long time,
and any decent officers extant are carefully
suppressed to bring the filth and the liars
to the top.

Not just Cantrell, but the entire department,
requires cauterization by decertification, which
is the only way to even start. And records
for thirty to fifty years have to be examined,
and the proper heads lawfully cleaved.

These facts WILL OUT, but perhaps too late.
Arizona residents: ask yourself why the local
media is so unwilling to objectively examine
police CRIMES in your venue, and why liars
and perpetrators like Cantrell are never
even wrist slapped.

You are not the only victim.

Imbeciles like "Mark", who defend
this criminal conspiracy, never having
seen it the way we have, reinforce the
monster.

I have seen nothing, in forty years'
practice, as dangerous, and that includes
the recent terrorist attacks.

They murdered another child this week.
15 years old. He MAY have had a knife.
30+ shots, it seems. No powder residue,
so they were 25+ feet away. Draw your
own conclusions. I surely have drawn
mine. And what I see and have seen
is predatory and illegal behavior.

More important, while in Mesa--I work
and live in half a dozen cities--I saw
genuine crime IGNORED completely, as if
it were not even there. This is a
department which avoids danger and
seeks revenue and public relations coups,
which is overstaffed and overfunded,
and which has entirely too much power.
It needs to be broken.

One way to NOT be arrested in Mesa: DEAL OR MANUFACTURE DRUGS

AUTHOR: Clay - (U.S.A.)

I live and work in Mesa. I cannot file this myself, because my computer was stolen, so a friend is using his to do this for me. I have two jobs. So does my wife.

What we notice is that when we travel through Mesa, especially on foot, we see and smell drug activities in huge quantities, some of which have been in the same places for as long as ten years. Acetone, ether, anhydrous ammonia...these are the chemicals we smell, and they are not used in ordinary cooking.

So to Mark #1, above, I would suggest--since my wife and I follow your advice and break no traffic laws and look and act legitimate and ordinary in every way--maybe the best way to NOT get arrested or stopped or questioned in Mesa is to be a drug dealer. My wife and I have both been questioned and/or stopped MANY times, and I have actually been ARRESTED, though for what, I am not really sure.

This is a predatory town, with predatory police. Way too many of them... Millions of dollars in debt (conservative estimates say $30 million + just for this fiscal year), they persist in building speed bumps and being "politically correct" in their own narrow way, and yet do nothing for their citizens save rip them off. Cantrell is just one symptom of many.

If I had not purchased the home I live in, we would have been out of here almost immediately.

I see in today's paper the city of Mesa is concerned about "lack of night life" and "upscale spending after dark"... Who wants to come here to be victimized?

I got tied up in a similar thing, and wound up spending two days in jail. Even though charges were dismissed (I was not "on" anything, but I did have vision problems, and was trying to pull off the road...found out later I had gotten something in my eyes off the street...), I wound up losing my job and my apartment and worse.

Found out you cannot sue a police department or a cop in Arizona unless you do so pretty much immediately (180 days is the filing limit, I think), and could not find a willing attorney in that time, anyway. And despite the fake report and lies and careful deletions and perjury, I found I had no recourse whatsoever. Mesa P.D. was uninterested in investigating the officer or the report...

The rest you can figure out.

Interesting: the fact that I was signalling and driving so slow was the reason I was arrested. Nothing in the police report said I did anything illegal, but they tried to make it look as if I was trying to "get away"... I suppose in a way I was, but not FROM THEM.

I have met Cantrell many times, and each time has generated yet another totally fraudulent police report. This department is hopelessly dishonest, at every level. No one I have ever even met doubts that for a second.

What planet do you live on? Mesa P.D. is a criminal organization, plain and simple,
and Cantrell is a criminal who belongs in jail.

Bogus stops here are a dime a dozen. The reasons for them are very obvious.
And the inbred collection of lice and other parasites which comprises
this putrid dungheap called Mesa P.D. has open criteria for bogus stops.

So quit lying for these rats!!! Mark, you are as bad as "Lynn", who, by the way, really IS officer Cantrell.

AUTHOR: Mark - (U.S.A.)

I'm not "nuts," I'm not Mormon, I'm not a cop, never have been one in Arizona. I do not know Officer Cantrell and have never heard of her anywhere other than this site, so I can't comment on her. I work in the private sector, but deal on a daily basis with officers from all over the state - including Mesa. Any workplace has its "bad apples," and all departments make mistakes now and then. I have never met a Mesa officer who demonstrated anything but professionalism and integrity. I've heard about some of the problems some officers have caused, but to believe that the entire department and whatever civilian oversight it has are all involved in some conspracy just boggles the imagination.

Here's the deal: Don't break the law. Don't drive drunk. Stay at or below the speed limit. Stop at the red lights and stop signs. Do these things, and I sincerely doubt that you will have any problems with Mesa or any other police department.

Mesa is dying, and the city government IS the cause

AUTHOR: Pat - (U.S.A.)

The city government of Mesa, especially its
unelected parts--the police department, the prosecutors, the city manager, and all associated criminals--are destroying the city.

They are why tourists do not return, high-quality businesses leave or disappear, taxes are way too high, and moronic projects such as the perpetual "renewal"/destruction of downtown chase even more decent people and enterprises away, while the illegal drug trade prospers RIGHT OUT IN THE OPEN.

The city's bogus mottos are lies, and its public officials belong imprisoned.

One finds certain things floating in a sewer.
Cantrell is just one of them, merely a symptom of a municipal disorder so severe as to be terminal.

What happened here eventuates many times every day.

This very day, a methamphetamine lab was discovered in Leisure World, owned by a 72-year-old, which has apparently been in operation for quite some time. I, myself, reported that and another facility a very long time ago. Mesa P.D. did NOTHING. It was finally exposed and "busted" by the sheriff's office. There is another I go by frequently which has been operating for five years, and which has been reported at least a dozen times. Response from the cowards of Mesa P.D.? None.

Cantrell (and Lynn, who I am SURE IS Cantrell, or one of her crooked associates) is part of what amounts to a conspiracy. The conspiracy works simply: give the appearance of law enforcement BUT NEVER TAKE ANY CHANCES. Make money, but never bother crimes originated by or done with the cooperation or complicity of the local power structure.

And by the way, it is perfectly fine with Mesa P.D. if THEY commit a few hundred or a few thousand crimes along the way, because they know they will never have to face ANY consequences.

Veronica, leave Mesa. Decent people of all kinds, leave Mesa. Let the pukebags who run the slime pit figure out how to finance their ridiculous frauds, on their own.

continual misconduct, and just plain
rip offs. Why bother to bring them

For more on Cantrell and her many other fraudulent reports, see Report #21215....

AUTHOR: James - ()

More information on Cantrell is contained
in Report Number 21215.

Lynn's suggest to hold police "responsible" is hilarious. There is no mechanism for doing so in Mesa, or anywhere in the East Valley of the Sun, and the County Prosecutor's office, who should handle perjury and blatant fraud and false report matters involving officers, will NOT TOUCH anything to do with these monsters. In fact, Romley tried very hard to avoid pursuing bloody murder in Chandler, until the witnesses became too many to silence.

Only an outside agency will handle this level of police crime. Mesa P.D. is, itself, the largest criminal organization in the area, and the only one which functions openly--that is, other than the massive drug and coyote operations, which they are apparently bound to ignore, perhaps by financial considerations.

Let's don't be totally absurd: Mesa P.D. and NO PART OF MESA will ever do anything constructive in the way of reform on its own. This may be done on paper, but officers like Cantrell are precisely the kind of liars this outfit encourages and nurtures.

And even if she goes, there will be another hundred like her, ready to do the SAME THING.

Fact: No Mesa Police Officer has ever been directly disciplined for lying about or harassing a citizen. For lying to a supervisor, yes, but NEVER for doing so with/to a "suspect" or witness.

Lynn:

"Getting a life" isn't that easy, and keeping it is even harder, when one has to go to court four or five times to discharge bogus, fraudulent charges lodged by an officer who is NOTHING MORE OR LESS than a loose cannon and a liar.

What this woman pulled on me was even more nuts.

I tried complaint procedures, and got nothing but threats and double talk.

What needs to happen is simple: she and those like her need to be totally unemployed, and incarcerated for PERJURY and FILING FALSE POLICE REPORTS. The fact that these gutless worms you so cherish block every move in that direction tells us where we are. She cost me 70-80 hours of time and I do not know HOW much money, based on several things in her "police report" which could not happen on this or any other planet. I had to PROVE that in court. What ever happened to being innocent until proven guilty? And why does a criminal of this magnitude walk free?

Lynn, don't give me crap about "police departments"... This one is a FRAUD, top to bottom, and Cantrell is one of the most obvious symptoms.

I don't live in Mesa any more, thank God, and I rarely go there. But my friends who do (none of whom drink or do drugs, by the way) have all encountered this individual, some of them more than once.

Face it, Lynn, there is a REASON most citizens have only contempt for Mesa P.D. And it is not because, as you seem to think, we "did something wrong"...

I am sure that the police have more to do than just harass you "law abiding citizens." In fact I am positive that the reason the police contacted you is because you violated a law of some sort and now are mad because you got caught.



Accept responsibility for your choices...even the ilegal ones morons! You critizice the police now but I guarentee that when Mr Burgler is in your home, you will call these same officers to come and rescue you. They will be the ones who enter your house and look for the bad guy...not you. They are the ones you risk their lives everyday for you and this is what they get in return.



The problem with this city and it's police department is morons like you not it's officers. I know that the police are not perfect and we should not expect them to be. They are human like us. They make decisions based on the facts presented to them at the time. Its easy to monday morning quaterback and criticize.



If your girlfriend lies and you get arrested... be mad at her and not the police. Their reports contain the information that you provide to them. If it is inacurate... why is that I wonder? I am sure it has nothing to do with the fact that you lied.



Get a life and quit crying about the police. If you have a legitimate complaint then take it to the police department. It will be investigated and if the facts support your allegation then the officer will be disciplined. If you don't report officers that step outside the bounds then how can you complain when they do.

If you think this is ugly, wait until you are an insider, foolish enough to try to push a report "up channel"....

AUTHOR: former Mesa Police Officer - ()

Cantrell and others like her-- and they are LEGION in this department-- survive and prosper because they have the full and august support of the upper echelons.



Attempts to blunt the reports of officers. who are KNOWN liars and who commit fraud even openly are greeted with immediate discipline.



Bluntly put, telling the truth is far more likely to result in suspension, discipline, and termination than is "following procedure"--that is, shutting one's mouth and, if necessary, swearing to falsehoods.



The pressure brought to bear internally on officers is irresistable. And resistance is futile, almost suicide. Telling the truth on the witness stand in such a case is particularly frowned upon, even if it does not directly contradict another officer's testimony.



The job I found when I quit the force pays much better, anyway, and the handwriting was on the wall. When I had my new position located, I did,

however, lift a load off my personal shoulders and, instead of evading the truth, made sure the facts were known in several downright bogus cases.



The unwritten law and "the code"-- thou shalt not testify against a brother officer-- is part of the reason this city is having the vast problems that are becoming so obvious.



There are many fine officers on this force, who if the pressures were re-arranged, and administrative and disciplinary pressures shuffled to a more "truth-friendly" atmosphere, could fairly rapidly change this from the very worst situation imaginable to one of the very best. But that cannot happen within the current structure, given the pressures from outside.



And those officers are forced by economic necessity and discriminatory internal policies and procedures to keep their traps SHUT.



One thin ray of hope: there are only two

old school Mormons on the City Council now,

and if enough noise is made to the others,

enough facts presented, progress might be

made.



But for right now, any officer with any ethics

at all would be committing career suicide and, I

suspect, probably family suicide as well to even

TRY to push a report on fraudulent "evidence"

or obstruction of justice to any higher channel.

a drink in about thirteen years.



I have done more one-legged stands and foot-over-foot walks for this psychopath than a diva

Because of my cold medication, I have shown some alcohol (way below the legal limit) a couple of times. This scuzzbag believes NO ONE, and seems to get furious when she finds out her victims haven't even had a sip. She has twice told me: "I know YOU!!!! I busted you for crack!!!" Really? The only things I have ever been addicted to are mashed potatoes and ice cream. I have never even SEEN crack.



One more time, I think, and this b***h and I go to court, all right, and she will be the defendant. I don't even live in Mesa, and try hard not to drive there. But I have been to court half a dozen times, and am getting sick of the harrassment and annoyance and overall time wasting.



If she likes to watch fat people walk funny, and then lie about it on the reports--which she has done EVERY SINGLE TIME--why doesn't she try choreography or maybe get a job as a dance critic?

Cantrell has violated her oath and every

specific and implicit standard of conduct

involved in public service.



She is overly aggressive, a chronic, pathological liar, and she falsifies police reports whenever she sees one. To give you an idea how fundamentally corrupt Mesa P.D. REALLY IS, her vicious conduct has apparently resulted in a PROMOTION.



One thing of which you may rest assured: Nothing and no one in or at Mesa P.D. will ever move against animals like this. Note how many bogus reports are filed in her name, and how many incidents of her overzealous conduct have

become near legendary in this community, and you

KNOW what you are dealing with.



She is only the tip of a very large iceberg.

Her and other "pretend" cops are far more vicious criminals than even the crack and meth dealers who abound in Mesa. Reason: they act with sanction, and infect EVERYONE... And they do nothing to impact the actual crime that one sees constantly in the area within a few miles of Main and/or Broadway, clear from Dobson east to about Lindsay. Why, they could get HURT!!!!



But as long as the corrupt local courts and

prosecutors not only ignore but move to protect

countless episodes of perjury, false reports, and

what amounts to "framing" people, many times daily, all we can do it pout.



Housecleaning is going to amount to a legal

purgative. It starts with getting rid of the City Manager AND HIS OFFICE and, in the meantime,

putting every possible financial squeeze on this

Byzantine corrupt town.



Cantrell is an illness that every taxpayer has

to pay, directly and indirectly. And none of the "leadership" in this cesspool is even discussing reform or simply getting rid of the criminals like her in the midst of this department. Indeed, they are looking to hire MORE.



Mesa makes the Mafia look honest.



No wonder it is easier to buy crack or crystal methamphetamine here than it is to

purchase a ball point pen.



Did anybody notice that, while the local darlings were on Television, near Horne and Main, watching a bicycle thief, just a few yards behind them was AND REMAINS a huge open-air drug market, so public it is only microns short of advertising with a huge neon sign? I have been offered all sorts of drugs, within feet of where their clever "undercover" operation proceeded, and I was once stupid enough to report this. What I learned was: DO NOT BOTHER. All it did was turn their pernicious scrutiny on me. And I am 56 years old. The last time I was even AROUND illegal drugs, the "officers" with whom I vainly tried to discuss this festering boil of corruption were not even BORN. They knew nothing about the subject matter under discussion, were unfamiliar with terms like "X" and "coyote" in

their "street" sense, but were MORE THAN WILLING to try to infer, somehow, that I was in that area TO PURCHASE UNLAWFUL CHEMICALS. One of these stalwarts made a great deal out of the fact that a single-edged razor blade and some masking tape, along with a can of spray paint, was on the counter, near my tools, accompanied by a small tube of Bondo.

become near legendary in this community, and you

KNOW what you are dealing with.



She is only the tip of a very large iceberg.

Her and other "pretend" cops are far more vicious criminals than even the crack and meth dealers who abound in Mesa. Reason: they act with sanction, and infect EVERYONE... And they do nothing to impact the actual crime that one sees constantly in the area within a few miles of Main and/or Broadway, clear from Dobson east to about Lindsay. Why, they could get HURT!!!!



But as long as the corrupt local courts and

prosecutors not only ignore but move to protect

countless episodes of perjury, false reports, and

what amounts to "framing" people, many times daily, all we can do it pout.



Housecleaning is going to amount to a legal

purgative. It starts with getting rid of the City Manager AND HIS OFFICE and, in the meantime,

putting every possible financial squeeze on this

Byzantine corrupt town.



Cantrell is an illness that every taxpayer has

to pay, directly and indirectly. And none of the "leadership" in this cesspool is even discussing reform or simply getting rid of the criminals like her in the midst of this department. Indeed, they are looking to hire MORE.



Mesa makes the Mafia look honest.



No wonder it is easier to buy crack or crystal methamphetamine here than it is to

purchase a ball point pen.



Did anybody notice that, while the local darlings were on Television, near Horne and Main, watching a bicycle thief, just a few yards behind them was AND REMAINS a huge open-air drug market, so public it is only microns short of advertising with a huge neon sign? I have been offered all sorts of drugs, within feet of where their clever "undercover" operation proceeded, and I was once stupid enough to report this. What I learned was: DO NOT BOTHER. All it did was turn their pernicious scrutiny on me. And I am 56 years old. The last time I was even AROUND illegal drugs, the "officers" with whom I vainly tried to discuss this festering boil of corruption were not even BORN. They knew nothing about the subject matter under discussion, were unfamiliar with terms like "X" and "coyote" in

their "street" sense, but were MORE THAN WILLING to try to infer, somehow, that I was in that area TO PURCHASE UNLAWFUL CHEMICALS. One of these stalwarts made a great deal out of the fact that a single-edged razor blade and some masking tape, along with a can of spray paint, was on the counter, near my tools, accompanied by a small tube of Bondo. Anybody recognize that combination??? Well, they didn't!!!



Fact: Mesa has no Police Department. What we have is A GROTESQUE LIABILITY.

Avoid Mesa entirely, boycott the town, avoid all the thieves (especially the cops)

AUTHOR: Jim - ()

You'll notice Cantrell's name comes up in several RIPOFF REPORTS. She is a rather profound symbol of what is terminally wrong with Mesa, and especially with its carbunculous police department. There is no hope of dealing with scumbag liars like her through Mesa's bogus "Internal Affairs/Citizen Complaint" people, who are squarely ensconced in the very most blatant coverups, lies, and frankly, the business of two-bit revenge. The woman and the department need to be sued, as Brown and Markley and others have done, and in Federal Court, where this city's lowlife rat administrators and politicans have less clout.



Meantime, boycott everything in Mesa that you can... Tell people back East to go somewhere else. Do not spend a dime here, and discourage friends even from visiting you here. Tell the local businesses WHY you are not dealing with them: the corrupt, byzantine criminal filth who run this community. Vote against the stadium, and turn out at the polls to reject every LDS candidate for every office. And contact the United States Department of Justice. Enough complaints, something ugly will happen to these two-bit racketeers.



Cantrell belongs locked up, whether in a funny farm or a prison makes very little difference. She is typical of what Mesa P.D. wants: loyal, psychopathic, pathological liars of the lowest order. And guess what? That is what they are getting, and these dungwads are PROUD of filth like her.



Personalities like hers should never be allowed in any public contact position of any sort, and should surely not be allowed to carry firearms, let alone granted powers of arrest and incarceration. I have met her, and I have stepped on better human beings in cow pastures. The woman is apparently incapable of uttering even a single truthful word.



Remember: ROBBERS DO NOT NEED COPS, BUT COPS MUST HAVE "ROBBERS"...and if they are too dishonest or cowardly to find real ones, or if real ones simply do not exist, they are compelled to make them up out of air.



If you want to know why Mesa is awash in crack cocaine and crystal methamphetamine, look no further than where these jerks spend their time... They don't seem to care where it is, as long as it helps with quotas and avoids any hint of actual danger.



Frankly, this city would be better off with no police force, or for that matter, city administration, than the collection of lice it has in place, and has had for 150 years.



Vote and withhold funds, and these vermin will disappear. Otherwise, your grandchildren will still be dealing with putrid parasites like these $35,000 a whack (to start, while still in the academy yet) incompetent bozo thieves.

You would be in jail for lies like hers.

AUTHOR: John - ()

Funny. Ever notice that citizens who make out false police reports or blatantly commit perjury under oath in criminal matters wind up in the slam for a very long time. Ever notice that this particular full-time perjurer is still free and working? That tell you anything?



She tried real hard to rip me off several times. Never succeeded, but I sure did hear from her scumbag associates when I tried to push back and get her and her equally filthy, dirtball partner prosecuted for harassment and false swearing.



It isn't so much that there is NO JUSTICE in Mesa...it's that these slime weasels think that is just fine!



Why isn't she imprisoned, years ago???



And in the general population, where she and Mesa cops like her would get a nice chance to explain some of their bogus crap....



Some of these putrid judges and prosecutors ought to be there as well. A society which tolerates this sort of activity and mind set is doomed. One which actually encourages it--and look no further than your friendly, local Mormon cadre--is causing a revolution which will ultimately destroy it, and in the most horrible way. Too bad this scumwad will be retired by then, probably with full benefits. Same for her weasel partner, Marrical, the f****t flunkie.

look around, smell the rot ..Cantrell involved in number of fraudulent police reports

AUTHOR: bob - ()

Cantrell has been involved in any number of fraudulent police reports, which in Mesa are as common as street signs and way more obvious. I have one in my own file.



These criminals think nothing of eating up your time and the city's money on stupid, fraudulent fishing expeditions, and they do it hundreds of times each day. How to solve it?



(1. do away with the City Manager and his office



(2. set up a Police review board with non-mormon members and actual powers of criminal prosecution, who will put these filth in prison, in the general population,where they belong;



(3. Get out the vote among non-Mormons, in hopes of permanently terminating and expunging this kind of filthy, corrupt government and police criminality.



This woman belongs in prison, but no one on Mesa P.D. will look into anything from a real perspective. These Nazis are a house of cards, so many criminals, no actual defense.
