Warm Springs Tourist Info. {Oligarchy} Bad Cops, Police Gross Misconduct, Intentional Tort of Battery, Stalking, Torture, Assault & Battery. Perverted Tribal Justice.

This is a True Story experienced by My Family and I, on August 11th 2005 in Warm Springs Oregon United States of America. All names and times are Accurate & Correct. I am an Oregonian, an American Citizen, Federal & State Tax Payer and an Evangelist for our God and his Son Jesus Christ.

United States Department of Justice Mission Statement:

To enforce the law and defend the interests of the United States according to the law; to ensure public safety against threats foreign and domestic; to provide federal leadership in preventing and controlling crime; to seek just punishment for those guilty of unlawful behavior; and to ensure fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans. It is a crime for one or more persons acting under color of law willfully to deprive or conspire to deprive another person of any right protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States. (18 U.S.C. 241, 242). "Color of law" simply means that the person doing the act is using power given to him or her by a governmental agency (local, State, or Federal). A law enforcement officer acts "under color of law" even if he or she is exceeding his or her rightful power. The types of law enforcement misconduct covered by these laws include excessive force, sexual assault, intentional false arrests, or the intentional fabrication of evidence resulting in a loss of liberty to another. Enforcement of these provisions does not require that any racial, religious, or other discriminatory motive existed. Violations of these laws are punishable by fine and/or imprisonment. This law makes it unlawful for State or local law enforcement officers to engage in a pattern or practice of conduct that deprives persons of rights protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States. (42 U.S.C. 14141). The types of conduct covered by this law can include, among other things, excessive force, discriminatory harassment, false arrests, coercive sexual conduct, and unlawful stops, searches or arrests. My Family and I were pulled over for a Minor Traffic Violation by Matthew Sherwood and Mike Perkins of the Warm Springs Police Department in Jefferson County Central Oregon USA on Oregon State Highway 26 on August 11th 2005. We were then Patronized, Violated, Tortured,, Stalked, Threatened, Intimidated and then Beaten & Pepper Sprayed by the two Warm Springs Oregon Indian Reservation Police Officers. Matthew Sherwood & Mike Perkins. OREGON STATE HWY 26, and in the parking lot of The Indian Head Restaurant. We were obviously deprived of our "Personal Liberties"! (118US.356,357) & Civil Rights! Matthew Sherwood isn't Indian and he doesn't live on the Reservation. He used to work for Madras Police Department as a wannabe. He may have worked for the Prineville Sheriff. He also has priors for this type of activity. Mike Perkins is not Indian and he works for the Linn County Sheriff or at least use to. They Threatened & Degraded us over an hour Prior to being Beat, with Bodily Harm & Physical Injury!! For a minor traffic violation? Matthew Sherwood said that he will yank me out of the car window and beat my a*s. He said that he is sick of people like me speeding thru his town. He said that he is sick of mother %#ckers like me killing people on his highway. We did nothing to endanger anyone's lives. We were in Fear of our Safety and our Lives hours Prior to being Intentionally Attacked & Assaulted. In such Fear that we had to summons the help of an Oregon State Police Officer to save us from the Torture, Terror & Intimidation! We advised the Oregon State Trooper that we were being Threatened with Physical Bodily Harm & Intimidated and that we needed him to stay with us until the Rogue Indian Reservation Cops have left the area because we were in Fear of them and their Threats of Physical Harm to Myself & to my Family. I even pointed out to him which one was the Aggressor & Agitator. (Matthew Sherwood) He agreed to do so, and he did just that! He sat there with us until the 2 Insurgents had left the area and then he left shortly after. (This was recorded by the Oregon State Police Officer and we have a copy of this recording from the Oregon State Police Department) The Insurgent Indian Reservation Officers took my State of Oregon drivers license (said it was suspended) and told us that we had to sit there. Matthew Sherwood advised us that "HE" was Judge, Jury & Executioner in Warm Springs. After the Oregon State Police Officer left the area The 2 Indian Reservation Insurgents then Stalked and Intimidated us for over an hour. Driving by real slow (1-5 mph) in a 45 mph zone in the middle of OREGON HWY 26. 4 Times he did this. Flipping us off every time he slowly drove past us. Flipping us off?? This is a Cop?? This isn't a Cop. He also parked in the bushes and sat behind us for over 20 minutes. The fourth time he flipped us off, I flipped him back, then the Insurgent (Perkins, also worked as a Linn County Sheriff deputy) did a screeching 180 and came to a skidding stop right next to my drivers door, in the middle of OREGON HWY26, he jumped out of his Patrol car and Threatened us again with Bodily Harm, Physical Injury & even Vehicle Confiscation! When I said "You cant do this to us" You cant steal my License and then tell us to sit here like sitting ducks and then Torture, Stalk, Intimidate & Threaten us"....."What's your Badge #"? He started laughing like a Drunk and called me a %#cking Idiot over & over and said that I watch to much God d**n TV and then he sped off in his Patrol car. (Perkins) Threatens us and then jumps back into his car and leaves the scene. This is a Cop? A Police Officer? A Sheriff Deputy? Get Real! (My Wife & Children are Witnessing all this) I told my Wife to go call 911 and tell them that we are being Stalked and Threatened again by the same Insurgent cops that we had requested help from the Oregon State Police to protect us from. They hung up on her! They hung up on her!! She figured that it had to be a bad connection. Who in their right mind would hang up on a women calling 911 for help from someone threatening to harm her. Na, They hung up on her. 911? She called back a few more times & the lady kept hanging up on her. No sooner did she get back to the car crying hysterically saying they just kept hanging up on me, the other Insurgent cop (Sherwood) comes skidding up to the back of our car (we have pictures of this) He jumps out (this is the Same Exact Cop that was Threatening me earlier with Bodily Harm & Physical Injury, and we had to ask a State Cop for help from and Who also has a Record of this Type of behavior! & who I pointed out to the State Cop) He starts Patronizing & Threatening my wife.... He said "Im sick of your %#cking a*s's" grabbing at his gun and pepper spray, unsnapping them, as to invoke Fear & Intimidation, I said to my wife,"get back in the car" "we are in the Twighlight zone" and pointed towards the car door, as I was turning around I was being Pepper Sprayed in the neck, chest, shoulder, back & head. The Insurgent Cop was so Hyped up, Angry and out of Control that he couldn't even aim straight. I yelled out "what the hell are you doing"? "what's wrong with you"? "what did we do to you"? " He screams out "you're going down you God d**n Punk!" "Im taking you down", "I hate mother %#ckers like you"! Im sick of your %#cking a*s, And started hitting me with his Metal Stick. I then screamed at my wife to "Run, Run, Run, go call 911, call the police, call the State Police, Get Help! Fast, Run, Run. Get help fast"! It was Clear to us that we were in a Lawless town ran by a bunch of Insurgents Cops that Force their own Rule of Law! I believe the State Cop knew this as well! As she ran I was walking backwards saying to the Cop "you cant do this to my family".... (My hands were up in the air and I was walking backwards the entire time, even their witness's confirm this). I couldn't turn my back on him that was obvious. He just kept Beating & Beating & Spraying. As my wife was on the Phone trying to call 911 again, I was walking backwards around the phone booth in circles yelling for him to stop,"Please stop" " don't you see what you are doing to my kids". (12&15) Who were crying hysterically and screaming "what's wrong with you"? "Why are you doing this to us"? "Please stop hitting my Dad". Stop, Stop Stop. {I am sure this was recorded over the phone with 911 but they wont let us have those tapes} Then the other Insurgent cop (Perkins) came skidding into the parking lot, jumped out of his car and started Beating me with his Metal Stick & Pepper Spraying me. As he was Attacking me the other one stops Beating me (Sherwood) and jumps on my 15 year old Son, throws him to the ground, yanks his head back by his hair and sprays him point blank right in his eyes with his Pepper Spray. Why? Why did he attack my son? Why? Why Huh? Why? My son was crying and asking Why? Why? Why?. Why would a Cop stop attacking me and choose to attack a 15 year old defenseless boy? Yeah! you need a Badge & a Gun! My son was doing absolutely nothing! Absolutely nothing!!!! He was crying, screaming and asking Why? Why? Why? & "Please Stop" Please Stop"! The Insurgent cop that Attacked my Son then comes over to where I am being Beaten (as my Son is handcuffed on the ground screaming & kicking and rolling around in Extreme Pain, Agony & Total Disbelief) and sticks his Gun in my face and starts screaming "Im going to kill you" "Im going to kill you mother %#cker" Im Going to kill you "You %#cking punk, Im going to %#cking kill you" as the other one is Beating & Spraying me. Cops? Na! These are not Cops! (you don't have a clue as to how I wanted to protect myself & family at this point, & very well could have if I chose that route, which I did not!!) All the while the Jefferson County or Wasco County Sheriff and other Warm Springs Cops in the background were moving out of the way of the Bullet Travel & the whole time I was yelling "Who are you people? What's wrong with you? You cant do this to us, You cant do this to my Family. I said "You're gunna shoot me? You're gunna shoot an unarmed man with his hands in the air" "Walking backwards and begging you to stop beating him"? "Go ahead You want me to turn my back too"? I started to kneel on my knees,.... hands still in the air,...still in the air!, not resisting in any way, shape or form (actually saying"please stop hitting me") and then the Insurgents figured this was their chance to inflict some Real Damage since I was in a Vulnerable position, (hands in the air and on my knees) & they started Beating me even more. He (Sherwood) yells out "We don't negotiate, you f***ing a*****e" "We don't negotiate with Mother %#cking Punks" and continues to Beat me. Cop? Na! This is called a Coward!! Cowards do not belong behind a Badge & a Gun. Especially on an Indian Reservation where they don't have to obey their own Laws, let alone any of the Constitutional Rights of any American Citizen and Oregonian traveling thru their "Above the Law" Foreign Country" on an Oregon State Highway! After I realized the Cops were not there to talk or arrest me for anything but they were there to do exactly what they said they were going to do, hours earlier! Which was to Inflict Physical Bodily Harm and to Physically Injure Me and MY FAMILY! I stood up, took a few more blows with their Metal Sticks, a few more shots with their Pepper Sprays. I then screamed out at the Crowd, "Don't you people see what these Cops are doing? They yelled out "Yes we see them" I said "will you do something then if they start hitting me again when I get down & try to surrender? They yelled out "Yeah man we got your back". "We are watching them". The Insurgents then calmed down enough (Since they now knew that they were being witnessed) I then knelt down & they handcuff me and threw me on a bench and I flipped over the back of it onto my head, neck and shoulders. It just so happens that there were Jefferson or Wasco County Sheriff's Officers & other Warm Springs Cops in the Crowd who just watched me & my 15 year old son being Beaten & Attacked. Just Watched!...... Just Watched? Why? Why did they just watch? Why didn't they get involved? Just Watched? I took over 70 Blows from 2 Metal Sticks, I was Pepper Sprayed and I had to Watch while my 15 year old Son was Attacked, Assaulted and Tortured for no reason!!!!!!!!!! What could we have possibly done to deserve this? Over a 3 hour period, We were Victimized, Patronized, Belittled, Degraded, Stalked, Tortured, Intimidated, Threatened Repeatedly, Assaulted, Falsely Arrested, Falsely Imprisoned, Illegal Vehicle Search, Victims of False Polices Reports, Hung up on by the Entity (911) that was established to PROTECT people who are in Imminent Danger and being Threatened, Stalked & Tortured!!! I was denied my Pain medicine and I was denied a phone call! Not once! Not Twice! Not Even Tree times! Over & Over they Hung Up on a Women who was crying out in Desperate need of HELP and Assistance!!! Because of her Negligence (911 Operator) we were Attacked & Assaulted anyway! From the same Cops that we were Threatened with Physical Injury and Bodily Harm from hours prior! We suffer to this day! You don't have a Clue! If a women asked for help from an Oregon State Cop because she was being threatened with RAPE and she was subsequently RAPED by the 2 that were threatening her hours prior......and she called 911 for help during the RAPE and was hung up on......Numerous times!..During the Rape, Hummmm!!! Get Real!! ...don't try to Hide it!....Do something About it!!!! We tried to stop the Imminent attack hours earlier!!! We tried to call 911 for assistance over & over again!! Do you think any of it has stopped? Well it sure as hell has not!!! My Family is Traumatized to say the least! I can give you a very long list of Depression, PTSD, Nightmares, Physical Damage, Mental Damage, Emotional Damage, Financial Damage and so on and I can personally guarantee you that it was not brought on because of me or any wrongdoing on my Families part! About a month after the Incident we find out that the Insurgent Cops are now saying that I hit them! How Pathetic!! They actually FILED a Police Report saying that I beat one of them in the Face several times. What!!? What the!!? Where were his injuries? Why would I stop beating him? If I would have started beating him, I guarantee I would not have stopped! Especially after he attacked my innocent 15 year old son!!! Why is it then that no one else seen this? Not even their own witness who stated that he seen the entire incident from beginning to end yet he never says anything about the Insurgents being hit or me even attempting to protect myself or my family. He actually states that I was walking around backwards around the phone booth yelling "Please stop" Please Stop" "please stop hitting me" with my hands in the air the entire time! That's their witness, not mine. How about the other Warm Springs Cop (Jeremy) with his little ride along buddy who was about 10 years old?! Did he witness this? Did the Jefferson County or Wasco Sheriff she anything resembling me protecting myself??? Another one of their Falsified Police Reports states that I kicked the other Insurgent Several times in the Stomach. Their witnesses never seems to have ever seen this part of the incident either and neither did the Jefferson/Wasco County Sheriff or the other Warm Springs Cops! Why is that? Why? Because it's a Lie that's why? This is called a FALSE POLICE REPORT. Cops? Na! I don't think so! Ask any of their witnesses if they ever seen me even act like I was going to hit them, ask them if I ever tried to protect myself or my family at any point, in any way shape or form. Do you have any clue as to what this does to a Father? A Dad, A Husband? An American? An Oregonian? None of their witnesses seen this part!! Not even their witness that says he seen the whole thing from beginning to end. Liars Too! .......Wow, go figure! My hands were in the air the entire time I was being Beaten, Tortured & Assaulted.

WE ARE THE VICTIMS!!! We are still suffering from it, Daily!!!!!!!!!!! We are seeking Your Type of Justice! Now lets see it! Stand up! "If so-called Police Officers will Infringe on men's Rights, they ought to Pay Greater Damages than other men, to Deter and Hinder other Officers from the Like Offences." Federal Criminal Civil Rights Law prohibits Law Enforcement agents from conspiring to interfere with Federally Protected Rights, depriving Rights under Color of Law, or Using or Conspiring to use Force, or Threat of Force, to interfere with the free exercise of our Civil Rights. We haven't even brought up the 911 Operator or My Physical Injuries let alone the Mental, Financial or Emotional problems we are all experiencing. Have you ever heard of PTSD?

The United States Constitution provides fundamental rights which cannot be denied. All law must comply with the basic fundamental rights and guarantees provided by the United States Constitution. The protections afforded under the Constitution of the United States, as well the constitutions of the various states, are provided to all persons. Any law which violates constitutional law may be overturned through the court system and thus prosecution based upon such law would be prohibited. Courts are routinely asked to determine whether the prosecution of a person would violate Constitutional law.

"BLUE WALL of Justice" "You know the words on the side of police cars "To Serve And Protect", let me tell you every time I see that I'm sick with grief. It doesn't apply to anyone. It should read, "hey, we serve and protect our own"! Why would a Jefferson or Wasco County Sheriff's Deputy stand there and watch and not say anything? We have a picture of this. We have a Growing List of Past Victims of Matthew Sherwood and we have NEW Victims of Matthew Sherwood. Including False Statements, Police reports and he even called one of them at Home and threatened them over the phone. People this is not a Cop! Someone needs to Stand Up! We went to Warm Springs in February 06 to file Criminal Charges on their two Insurgents and to show my boys how to get Justice done when you have been Violated and to prove to them that all the years of teaching them that Cops and Authority figures are your friends and how you should respect them wasn't in vain and then,......after witnessing the Stalking, Torture and Attack....then they witnessed the Warm Springs Police Chief ENES SMITH say "He doesn't accept Criminal Charges on his Police Officers and we better get the Hell out of the Country or he will personally take us out"! WOW! That's their Chief. Hummm! What damage! He, Ironically writes books on "Liars" and "How to tell when someone is Lying" Wow! Maybe you can invite him to your town, schools, colleges, police stations and have him teach you about Liars! What a Fraud! My Family has suffered tremendously from Warm Springs reckless negligence. We have suffered emotional, mental, financial & physical pain. I admonish you to view Oregon's Bill of Rights let alone The Constitution of the United States of America.

Police abuse is a serious problem. It has a long history, and it seems to defy all attempts at eradication. No police department in the country is known to be completely free of misconduct -- but it must be fought locally. The nation's 19,000 law enforcement agencies are essentially independent. While some federal statutes that specify criminal penalties for willful violations of civil rights and conspiracies to violate civil rights, the United States Department of Justice has been insufficiently aggressive in prosecuting cases of police abuse especially on Indian Reservations.

Police Brutality and Police Misconduct is not merely a problem, it is a crime against people! If a police officer breaks the law, they should be held accountable for their actions and prosecuted just like you and I. Liberty & Justice for All! Everyone has Human & Civil Rights and they should not be abused by anyone, especially the Police!! We are and have suffered Emotionally, Mentally, Financially & Physically. Someone needs to "Stand Up"!

Would you care for a list of our Physical, Mental, Emotional and Financial problems? They are all Guilty of Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress, Causation of Negligence, Filing False Police Reports, False Statements, Breach of "Duty of Care, Breach of Duty to Rescue, Contributory Negligence, Intentional Tort of Battery, Aggravated Assault, Torture, Stalking, Personal Liberties Violations, Civil Rights, Excessive Force, and More.. 911 & Public Safety involves the protection of the general population from ALL manners of significant danger, injury, damage & harm! Sworn Officers & Indian Reservation Police Officers are in this category weather they like it or not! Dont help them cover up their Lies. We have tried everything under the sun to get help. We have been ignored by everyone. I have even been told by the FBI that we deserved it. My God My God My God. What is with the world today? They filed False Statements, Police Reports and Lied out of their teeth to make it look like we deserved to be Beat. Deserved to be Tortured & Beat? I have gone to the hospital for my physical injuries but have no coverage for pain pills or spasm medicine on a monthly basis. I couldn't't describe our mental injuries if I tried. Watching my son be tortured is in itself Torture. We re-live it daily. Nightmares, Fights, Drop Outs, Drugs, Emotions, Mental, Physical, everyday, every night! We have been to our State and Federal Governments and to Warm Springs, have filled out Complaint Forms & tried to press Criminal charges on the 2 cops as individuals and were threatened. We have been to Jefferson County Court house and were told "There isn't anything you can do, " too bad". She said try the Madras Police. We went to the Madras Police & was told the same thing and was directed to the Jefferson County Sheriff. He was the most Cordial out of all but also stated that there is absolutely nothing that we can do. All this sounds bad enough to you Im sure but you have to go by Office Policy. We have even been Denied our day in Court, not only for the Assault on my Family but even the Initial Minor Traffic Violation. I know deep inside, who ever reads this, knows that there should be something done. I cannot describe what this has done to my oldest son. I cannot describe what this has done to my youngest son. I cannot describe what this has done to my wife. I cannot describe what this has done to me. We have suffered from the Initial Traffic stop, We warned an Oregon State Police officer of an imminent attack, and even pointed out which one would do it. Then Stalked, Neglected & Beaten anyway, and it continues to this day. 24 hours a day. Spasms, Pain, Scars, Tears, Nightmares, Violated, Depression, State and Federal Government Denial, Financial Loss, Permanent Physical & Mental Injuries, Family life, Doubting my God, and more.....They were told ahead of time that there was going to be an attack and we were attacked. How can you deny any of it? How Pathetic! I don't live in a Foreign Country, I live in the United States of America in the Founded State of Oregon. Where are my RIGHTS? Someone really needs to Stand up! If an American Citizen cannot be Tried or Bound to any Indian ran Foreign Compound Operated in the State of Oregon, Then what in the Hell was Matthew Sherwood (Warm Springs Indian Insurgent Pig) doing Confiscating my STATE OF OREGON drivers license? Above the Law? He stole my State of Oregon drivers license and then made us sit there like sitting ducks! While they Stalked us for over an hour!! Where are my Rights? Who is going to Stand Up?


Proverbs 17:15 He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the Lord. The whole purpose of government is to punish evil and to reward good, and so to encourage right living, (Rom. 13:1-4; 1 Tim. 1:8-10). So, to justify the wicked or to condemn the righteous is to tend to the overthrow of all government by the encouraging of evil and the discouraging of good acts. For any person, but especially for a ruler, to justify the wicked is to show one's heart to be really with the wicked, and so that it is not a righteous, God-fearing heart. Because he is perfect holiness, God cannot but hate all wickedness, in whomever it is found. He will not align Himself with sinners: sinners must align themselves with Him. PROVERBS 19: 5 Proverbs 19:5 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape. (See v. 9). False witness has to do with public and official falsehoods, while lies has more to do with private misrepresentations. See God's view of lies in Jeremiah 9:3-6. Men may deceive men, and their lies may never be detected in this life, or they may be passed over, but they shall not escape, for there is a judgment at which all liars shall be condemned, (Rev. 21:8). Lying always increases, for each lie needs another to support it, until it becomes a habit, and truth is hard to even recognize.

Warm Springs is not a Central Oregon Tourist Destination!

True Story

AUTHOR: Warm Springs Victim - ()

I 100% believe this story as a similar situation happened to me and my father.  Matthew Sherwood is a loose cannon, he falsified is application to the OR State police for certification, & the Warm Springs Tribal court is a joke.  I had to pay hundreds of dollars to get my property back and thousands of dollars to a lawyer after a false traffic stop.  

We were removed from our vehicle by gun point, made to get on the ground face down, on 1/2" gravel, stayed there for 25 minutes till the officer got back up, then hand cuffed and put in the back of cop cars for another 20 minutes while two officers approached our vehicle with their guns drawn.  We were yelled at, intimidated, and we both fully expected to be shot.  Every time I see a police officer behind me in my car in get nerveous and start getting worried.  This was later described to me from a real law enforcement officer as a "Felony take down procedure".  This would be used in taking down a known felon that is known to be armed and dangerous and wanted by the law.  We are none of these, my father is a vet and this actually happened on Memorial Day.  The head officer there said "Take them All" and they confiscated thousands of dollars of our personal property.  We were charged with speeding, eluding a police officer, and in possession of a concealed weapon.  Oregon and Federal law allows individuals to have concealed weapons when going to or returning from shooting or hunting events.  We also have permits. 

His excuse for pulling us over was there was a report of a red truck waving a gun.  We were in a red truck so he pulled us over on US HWY 26.

Needless to say, I will never travel across that reservation again, do any business, vote for anything that will benefit the reservation, etc.  This has forever tainted my view of this area of Oregon.  The FBI even contact my Lawyer later to ask about the event.  The only positive experience we had was the judge in the tribal court.  She was very nice and professional.

This is as simple as a I can explain what happened to us.  I felt like a criminal and we did nothing wrong.  We weren't even speeding.  We are thankful that we're alive and that we got our property back.  By the way, there was only 7 lawyers in the country that could represent us in the court and ony one at the time in Oregon.

warm springs

AUTHOR: tiny4669 - (United States of America)

i have been pulled over several times on the reservation at various times of day and night. i have never been met with the radical attitude that you claim to have experienced. i am a little skeptical over your story, you make it sound like south central LA, there would have been no Wasco county sheriff present, there would have been no Jefferson county sheriff present, only last year, 2011 did a law pass allowing county officers on the reservation for public safety reasons. The accusations you alledge would have been witnessed by just too many officers/people, you make it sound like there were 10-20 officers present. Not only that, the accusation of rape????? Like I would believe that 5-15 people would stand around and allow this??? You make it a point to reference religion........ I have never been ripped off as bad by anyone as i have by a person of faith. I think that people use the Lord to hide behind and use as an excuse as to why they would never lie, or steal. One of my nieghbors,  an adult, a man of "faith", threatened my 9 year old son with physical violence then denied it. He had done this at the bus stop where several other children had witnessed it along with two other adults!!!

  So this story sounds just too far fetched. You know the saying that if it sounds too good to be true then it probably is?? Well there is also a saying about if it sounds too crazy to be true, then it probably isnt!! Sounds to me you have an authority problem.

Not True

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

I am in total dissbelief about this mans story. I was eployed by the Warm Springs police department for a few years just prior to this aleged incident. Warm Springs in no way would condone behavior like this. If, and I mean if this happened in front of the Jefferson County Sheriff and an Oregon State Trooper one of them would have either steped in or reported this incident to the Chief of Police and diciplinary action would have been taken. Warm Springs gets a bad rap just because it's a native department. I found that when I was there I worked some of the best officers I could have ever been around.
People don't stop to realize that Warm Springs can be and is a pretty violent community that also has a lot of very wonderful people in it. I treasure the time I spent there. Just a note, I am not a native american. Just your average white guy.
I would like to ask that people take the time to enjoy WArm Springs and form your own conclusions about this wonderful piece of american history.

Uh... where do I start???

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

1. This happened in 2005 and you're just doing something now in 2009?
2. Were you on an Indian reservation? If so, they are considered sovereign nations and their laws/rules apply.
3. If the things you claim happened, what is your docket number for the lawsuit you filed?
Basically, this is I guess possible but not very probable. If this had indeed happened in 2005 and you had any type of proof, you could have easily found a lawyer willing to take this case on a contingency base. No lawsuit, you're basically saying this didn't happen and is just a story you made up.
