In April, 2013, the the Boulder City, Nevada Chief of Police was fired from his position. During his tenure, the community that touches the Hoover Dam experienced falling crime rates when compared with the rest of Nevada. He was fired for one reason: he was one of the very few non-LDS officials in town. Finn states, "For the past seven years I applied my education, training and experience to lead the police department with the goal of making Boulder City the safest community in the state of Nevada," ... "That goal was achieved almost every year."
According to Ex-Police Chief Thomas Finn’s allegations, 'this bedroom burg is a seething cauldron of intrigue, revenge and discrimination, ruled by a small, closely knit cabal of power players, a group of folks who, you might say, are all cut from the same cloth.' Much like the nepotism afforded to many of Willard Romney's Mormon brethren during the hosting of the 2002 Salt Lake City (Pork Barrel) Winter Olympics, this closely-knit LDS run city has some dirty corruption. Mr. Finn, now relocated to a Northern Nevada community is not giving up on exposing the unimaginable incompetence and abuse of power in Boulder City.
The attorney who had it in for Mr. Finn from the get go, also the lawyer for the Mongols Motorcycle Gang, Mr. Steve Stubbs (Stubby), understands now that "Karma is a bitch" The LDS lawyer is under investigation for unscrupulous law practices. Regarding the concern of the former Chief of Police, Stubby was pissed his gang friends were being closely watched, considering their history of violence. Stubbs complained,
"He was going to have a zero tolerance policy against the Mongols for every little thing. People were given handlebar tickets, jaywalking tickets, unconstitutional tickets," said Stephen Stubbs, attorney for the Mongols.
How dare a police chief closely monitor a motorcycle gang who ordered to shoot to kill any member of the Hell's Angels who show up near the Mongols? Another interesting case related to more Mormon corruption, is the case against the son of City Attorney Dave Olsen. Brian Olsen was arrested, but not charged in court, after Henderson police (the city between BC and Las Vegas) received a complaint about him from a female classmate who knew him from a cosmetology school that both attended. The classmate complained that Olsen, when borrowing her cellphone, located and sent two nude photos of her to his email address, court records from the lawsuit show. Mormons are the most sexually repressed —and thus deviously clandestine— of any group. There is a reason there’s more anonymously accessed porn in Utah than any other state. What I’d like to know now is… why the DA declined to prosecute. Concluded that, if the girl had nude photos of herself on the phone, it was her own fault and got what she deserved…? Probably.
Dave Olsen (LDS), sued the Henderson Police on behalf of his son, alleging police violated his constitutional rights to be free of unlawful arrest, false imprisonment and infliction of emotional distress. The judge ruled in favor of the Henderson PD and shortly thereafter this February 2013 judgement against Olsen, Finn was fired based on very suspicious grounds. City Manager David Fraser has a problem paying his utility bills. In Boulder City, utilities such as power, water and garbage are paid through the city, which means the bills are public information. Records show that 11 times in the last 15 months, Fraser received delinquency notices from the city for not paying his bills. Four times, he was sent disconnect notices. Fraser, who earns $192,000 per year in salary and benefits, ordered city workers to stop the disconnections.
Mr. Finn and his wife Donna now reside in scenic Northern Nevada, far from the site of the misery inflicted upon him in Boulder City. Far from over, he intends to not only clear his own name and reputation which should never have been tarnished, but to show Boulder City who is running the show. He told a local CBS affiliate,
"I get regular contact from city employees and city residents who say, 'you really may want to look at this.' What else could they do to me? They tried to convict me of felonies. They fired me. They blast me still on a regular basis. I'm not going away," Finn said.
Hopefully reason will prevail and Finn won't stop pursuing his noble fight. Unfortunately, Willard Romney also won't go away, so we haven't heard the last from him either. I'd much rather hear from the former BCPD Chief.
