Immoral: Illegal alien, 19, arrested in connection with four Nevada murders

Four American citizens permanently separated from their families and friends.

From Fox News: Investigators in northern Nevada said a suspect in the murders of four people, three of them women, is in custody on an immigration hold and other charges.

Wilbur Ernesti Martinez-Guzman, 19, was arrested Saturday afternoon by deputies from the Carson County Sheriff’s Office, Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam told a news conference Sunday.

“We feel confident we have the evidence to link him to all four homicides,” Balaam said.

Investigators said the killings started on or around Jan. 10 in Gardnerville, a town south of Carson City. Connie Koontz, 56, was found shot and killed in her home. On Jan. 13, 74-year-old Sophia Renken was found dead in her home approximately a mile away from Koontz.

The FBI joined the investigation after the bodies of married couple Gerald David, 81, and Sharon David, 80, were found in their home on the southern edge of Reno Wednesday. Balaam told The Associated Press on Friday that all four killings were similar in the use of a firearm and the removal of objects from the victims’ homes.

The sheriff urged residents to turn on outside lights, secure their homes and refuse to open the door for anyone they didn’t know.

On Sunday, Douglas County Sheriff Dan Coverley told the Reno and Carson City communities: “We feel strongly that we have the man responsible for this and that you can continue to go about your daily activities and live normally.”

Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong told reporters a tip led investigators to surveil Martinez-Guzman, who had lived in the Carson City area for approximately one year. Furlong added that immigration officials had said that Martinez-Guzman “was likely in the United States illegally and was detainable.”

Martinez-Guzman was being held in the Carson City Jail on Sunday and was charged with burglary, possession of stolen property and obtaining money under false pretenses. Furlong added that an immigration hold had been placed on the suspect, who was not known to his office.

Washoe County District Attorney Chris Hicks said authorities would seek arrest warrants against Martinez-Guzman for the murders “in the coming days.”

CBS lawyer: No sympathy for Vegas victims, "probably Republicans"

hayley geftman gold

Hayley Geftman-Gold: Evil and heartless demorat/Twitter photo

Remember folks, #LoveTrumpsHate!
From Fox News: A top lawyer for CBS said she is “not even sympathetic” to victims of the Las Vegas shooting because “country music fans often are Republican,” when discussing the tragic mass shooting that occurred in Las Vegas late Sunday night. 
Hayley Geftman-Gold, the network’s vice president and senior counsel, took to Facebook after a gunman opened fire at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas, killing at least 58 people and sending more than 500 others to hospitals.
“If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs [sic] will ever do the right thing,” Geftman-Gold wrote in a now-deleted message that was first reported and captured by The Daily Caller.
Geftman-Gold continued: “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc [sic] country music fans often are Republican gun toters [sic].”
Geftman-Gold is presumably referring to Sandy Hook, which occurred in Newtown, Connecticut back in 2012. A 20-year-old gunman, Adam Lanza, killed 20 children and six adults during the tragic event that sparked intense political debates regarding gun control.
Geftman-Gold does not work directly with the network’s news division. According to her LinkedIn bio, Geftman-Gold has worked at CBS since September 2016 and graduated from Columbia University law school in 2000.
“CBS is looking into the matter,” a company spokeswoman told Fox News.
Feel free to contact CBS here.
Wait, never mind. CBS fired her.

NFL player Michael Bennett claims racial profiling by LVPD…omits a few details from his story

michael bennett

Bennett (l) and his buddy Kaepernick.

I’ve told you about this NFL player before. He’s writing a book entitled, Things That Make White People Uncomfortable (due out next year) and he won’t stand for the national anthem until he “feels like everything is equal.”
This past Wednesday he went public with an incident he had with the Las Vegas Police Department in August. We know there are two sides to every story yet it’s quite interesting that Mr. Bennett omitted a couple important details from his story. Read on…
From MyNorthwest.com: Michael Bennett addressed reporters Wednesday afternoon, hours after he posted an open letter to Twitter detailing a disturbing encounter with Las Vegas police during which he was forcefully held to the ground and handcuffed by an officer.
(From Bennett’s Twitter post: ““A police officer ordered me to get on the ground,” Bennett wrote. “As I laid on the ground, complying with his commands to not move, he placed  his gun near my head and warned me that if I moved he would ‘blow my (expletive) head off’.”)
“A lot of people of color have dealt with this before,” Bennett said. “And I hate that it happened to me, but I’m lucky to be in the situation to have the platform to continuously speak on injustice.”
Bennett said he told his family, teammates and head coach Pete Carroll about the incident after it happened in late August. After seeking advice about how to handle it, Bennett ultimately decided to make a public statement.
“There’s a lot of people who experience what I experienced in that moment,” Bennett said. “And they’re not here to tell their story.
“It’s an emotional moment for me. I know a lot of people are like, ‘Oh, did he want this on himself?’ I didn’t ask for this moment. It just happened to be me… any moment, I could have made the wrong decision. Whether move or (make the officer feel) like I was resisting or doing something wrong, and (the Seahawks) would be wearing… the patch with the No. 72 on it.”
A clearly emotional Bennett stood at the podium at Seahawks headquarters in Renton and fielded questions for nearly seven minutes before pausing during a question about his family.
The question was about a statement he made last year about being a black man in America – how even great accomplishments or fame cannot protect or make people of color immune from racism, racial profiling or police brutality.
“I try to tell my daughters every single day that they matter, and that…” Bennett said, before quietly walking out of the auditorium.
Cornerback Richard Sherman, who spoke to reporters shortly after Bennett’s exit, said Bennett’s own encounter is evidence in itself for the causes Bennett publicly supports — including his controversial decision to sit during the national anthem.
“Mike is literally sitting, taking a stand, doing everything he can to combat the same thing that he experienced,” Sherman said.
“And people are so worried about him sitting down during the national anthem that they completely miss that message a lot of the time. They want to be more angry at the action than the message. And that’s an unfortunate part of the world we live in nowadays. I wish that people would take it for what it is and make a difference.”


And what exactly did the Las Vegas Police Department have to stay about the incident that occurred in late August? From USA Today:
Las Vegas police said that there is no evidence to Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett’s accusation that he was racially profiled by the department during an incident outside a casino. 
Las Vegas Police Department undersheriff Kevin McMahill held a news conference Wednesday to respond to Bennett’s allegations, which he revealed earlier in the day.
“Many of the folks today have called this a incident of bias-based policing, police officers focusing solely on the race of an individual that they’re going to stop,” McMahill said. “I can tell you as I stand here today, I see no evidence of that. I see no evidence that race played any role in this incident.”
The officer who apprehended Bennett didn’t have his body camera on and it was not immediately clear why, McMahil lsaid. He added there are 126 videos from the officers that will be reviewed, and if those reveal that “any policies or training was violated, those officers will be held accountable.”
In a social media post, Bennett claimed he was singled out for “simply being a black man.” He added that “the officers’ excessive use of force was unbearable.”
Officers responded to reports of a possible active shooter in the casino around 1:30 on Aug. 27 after the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight.
While searching for an active shooter, an officer noticed Bennett crouched near a gaming machine. Two officers gave chase when the individual (later identified as Bennett) ran out of the casino and onto the strip. Both officers were armed with handguns, and the arresting officer did not turn on his body camera.
“You hear the officer approaching the door saying, ‘There he is.’ He gives chase, Mr. Bennett jumped over the wall, our officer jumped went over the wall immediately there after,” McMahill said. He said Bennett was detained for 10 minutes and released.
Bennett said he was not given “any justification” for his apprehension.


So Mr. Bennett is “crouching” during an active shooter situation? Understandable if he knew what was occurring. But if he didn’t know it might be an active shooter situation, then why is he crouching behind a gaming machine?
Even if Bennett didn’t know of the active shooter situation, why would he choose to run from a police officer? Guess it’s just one of those things that might make us white people uncomfortable.

DOJ issues ultimatum to NYC and other ‘sanctuary’ cities

trump and jeff sessions
Works for me.
From NY Post: The US Department of Justice on Friday gave New York City and eight other local governments that provide “sanctuary” to illegal immigrants until June 30 to prove they’re not violating federal law by refusing to cooperate with immigration authorities.
The ultimatums from President Trump’s administration were accompanied by an accusation that many of the targeted jurisdictions are “crumbling under the weight of illegal immigration and violent crime.”
“New York City continues to see gang murder after gang murder, the predictable consequence of the city’s ‘soft on crime’ stance,” the DOJ said in a news release.
A related letter to the director of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Office of Criminal Justice warns that the feds could withhold funding, suspend or terminate grants, declare the city ineligible for future funding or take “other action, as appropriate.”
A City Hall spokesman called the threat “nothing new.”
“This grandstanding shows how out of touch the Trump administration is with reality,” spokesman Seth Stein said.
“Contrary to their alternative facts, New York is the safest big city in the country, with crime at record lows in large part because we have policies in place to encourage cooperation between NYPD and immigrant communities.”
Letters were also sent to officials in Chicago, New Orleans, Philadelphia and Miami; Clark County, Nev.; Milwaukee County, Wis.; Cook County, Ill., and the state of California.

Harry Reid blames FBI chief Comey for Dems’ election woes

Of course he does.

Via NY Post: Everything’s fine, according to the top Democrat in the Senate.
Harry Reid (D-Nev.), the 77-year-old Senate minority leader who is less than a month away from leaving government, wants his party to settle down, as he blamed Democrats’ election debacle on the director of the FBI.
“They have Trump, I understand that. But I don’t think the Democratic Party is in that big of trouble,” Reid told Politico in an interview Wednesday.
“I mean, if Comey kept his mouth shut, we would have picked up a couple more Senate seats and we probably would have elected Hillary,” Reid said, referring to FBI Director James Comey.
In fact, Democrats suffered massive losses in the 2016 election, unexpectedly losing the presidency and failing to gain control of the Senate and House of Representatives.
The controversial Democratic leader also defended his legacy. “I’m sure there are people more capable than I, better-looking than me, better-educated than me, smarter than me. But I’ve got the job. And I try to do the best I can with the job. … I look around and I say, ‘Well, I’m the one that has to do it.’ So I have done the best I can,” he said.

But Republicans are largely glad to see him go. “I don’t have any sense of nostalgia about Harry Reid,” Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) told Politico.

Couple denied role as foster parents over permits to carry guns

Valerie and Brian

Valerie and Brian


FoxNews: A Nevada couple were denied their request to serve as foster parents because they have permits to carry guns.
Brian and Valerie Wilson, of Las Vegas, told “Fox & Friends” Sunday that they have always planned to become foster parents and eventually adopt, but have been denied permission to do so because of a state regulation that prohibits the carrying of loaded weapons with foster children.
“I really want a family,” said Valerie Wilson. “It really is heartbreaking because these kids are in institutionalized homes; they aren’t getting the families that they deserve,” she told “Fox & Friends.” “It’s heartbreaking that they’re not getting the home they deserve,” she said.
“It just doesn’t make sense,” Brian Wilson added. “We’re talking about law-abiding people, people who have had background checks. “We’re not talking about leaving a firearm around the house,” he said.
The Wilsons said they got the gun permits years ago after they were victims of an attempted home invasion. “We realized that bad things can happen to good people at any time and we need to be responsible,” Brian Wilson said.
Now the Wilsons are fighting to get the law in Nevada changed. They testified last week before the state Assembly Judiciary Committee to ask lawmakers to approve Assembly Bill 167, which would allow residents to carry loaded weapons on their person or in a car and still serve as foster parents, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
Current rules reportedly require guns and ammunition to be stored separately in secure containers in homes with foster children. The Wilsons’ request for a variance to the current law was denied.
Assemblywoman Olivia Diaz, a Democrat, said foster children are often traumatized. She asked if having them exposed to weapons would be appropriate.
Jill Marano, deputy administrator of the state Division of Child and Family Services, said the agency has fears about the possibility that a child could gain access to a loaded weapon. She opposed the bill in its current form.

Wayne Allyn Root on the Nevada Standoff

Wayne Allyn Root

WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS, MAY SPARK AN AMERICAN REVOLUTION

Posted by Wayne Root on April 12, 2014

By Wayne Allyn Root

Forget the Ukraine. The real revolution is happening right now north of Las Vegas where a rancher is under assault by the U.S. government.

Remember that famous Las Vegas advertising slogan, “What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas.” Well when it comes to big government stealing our property and violating our rights, it’s just not true. What’s happening in Vegas is symbolic of what’s happening across this once great country.

This federal government assault on a Nevada ranching family looks a lot like the Gestapo, the Stasi, or any other authoritarian Big Brother force that persecutes, intimidates and controls the people with an iron boot. Think I’m exaggerating? How about a Las Vegas elected official (County Commissioner Tom Collins) warning out of state protestors “to make funeral plans.” This isn’t Ukraine, or Moscow. That was a Las Vegas politician threatening to have government agents murder law-abiding protesters. https://www.reviewjournal.com/news/water-environment/collins-manages-insult-utahns-comments-bundy-roundup

My Jewish grandparents told me “Never forget.” What they meant was, “We must never forget the Holocaust and what happened to our people.” Well it’s time to remember, before America is no longer the land of the free! Before your free speech is corralled into a “First Amendment Area.” Before government can steal your land and take away your rights based on trumped up charges. Before government can use force to taser legal non-violent protesters. Before someone is killed by masked government snipers with AK47’s trained on American citizens.

Don’t look now. It’s happening. This is an offshoot of Obama’s plan for America- an open distaste and disgust for ranchers, farmers, hunters, capitalist owners of land. Obama hates independence. Under this administration we have record numbers of welfare, food stamp, disability and unemployment insurance. We have a government spending record money advertising to entice more Americans – even illegal immigrants- to accept food stamps and entitlement checks. We’ve given up on enforcing illegal immigration.

Obama treasures a nation filled with people who are desperate, helpless and dependent on government checks. He desperately needs to stamp out independent and self-reliant Americans who want nothing to do with the government. Look no further than this declaration of war upon a productive, taxpaying Nevada rancher family.

Obama always shows his hand with the three-letter government organizations- IRS, NSA, EPA, ATF, FDA, SEC. Obama uses them to target, intimidate and persecute his critics and political opponents. Now it’s time for a new 3-letter threat: BLM (Bureau of Land Management).

The federal government has surrounded the Bundy family ranch outside Las Vegas with snipers, heavily militarized police, vicious police dogs, black SUV’s, helicopters, low flying airplanes and automatic weapons. Cliven Bundy, is a patriotic rancher whose family has had the right to graze his cattle on this land since the 1870’s. Since before there was a BLM. Bundy does not believe he owes fees to the BLM. He recognizes this as a States’ Rights issue. https://danaloeschradio.com/the-real-story-of-the-bundy-ranch/

After well over a century with grazing rights on this land, suddenly in the 1990’s the federal government demanded rent to allow the Bundy family’s cattle to graze on it. Bundy claims his rights to graze came from the State of Nevada, not the BLM, and has already paid fees to Clark County, Nevada. Bundy already owns the water and forage rights to the land. https://danaloeschradio.com/the-real-story-of-the-bundy-ranch/

The feds blame this assault on the fact that desert tortoises reside on this land. The government is now using the tortoise as their “cover” for an armed assault on an American ranching family. Yet it is important to note that this same BLM has waived rules protecting the desert tortoise on numerous occasions to support wind and solar projects favored by U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. https://www.defenders.org/press-release/bureau-land-management-solar-plan-guides-energy-development-lower-conflict-areas.

https://www.windaction.org/posts/36964-lawsuit-searchlight-wind-energy-project-complaint#.U0jKnFzlQ-B

The BLM says Bundy owes $1.1 million in grazing fees (ostensibly to protest the desert tortoise) and has decided to use lethal force, positioning snipers on hilltops to perhaps shoot our own citizens. They’ve sicced vicious guard dogs on a pregnant woman. https://drleonardcoldwell.com/2014/04/10/feds-assault-cancer-victim-pregnant-woman-in-clash-with-bundy-supporters/

They’ve tasered and arrested members of the Bundy family for standing up to a force killing and stealing their property. https://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/04/10/tense-video-feds-taser-pro-nevada-rancher-protester-during-clash/

Bundy’s sister (a cancer victim) was thrown to the ground. Son Dave Bundy was beaten, bruised and arrested by this Gestapo-like force for the crime of…taking photos outside “the First Amendment Area.” https://mvprogress.com/2014/04/09/bundy’s-son-arrested-in-roundup-incident-public-protest-results/

And they’ve tried to banish protestors to a “First Amendment Area” where free speech is “allowed.” Funny, I thought free speech was a right everywhere on American soil? https://www.americasfreedomfighters.com/2014/04/11/blm-feds-assault-more-protesters-as-first-amendment-area-taken-down/

This is happening in America. Our country.

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval (a very moderate Republican) is angered by the federal government assault on property and States’ Rights. Sandoval said, “No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists, nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans. The BLM needs to reconsider its approach to this matter and act accordingly.”

Nevada U.S. Senator Dean Heller told BLM Director Neil Kornze, “…law-abiding Nevadans must not be penalized by an over-reaching BLM.”

Between you and me, I think these are both very weak statements for government overreach this dramatic.

Clive Bundy used to have 52 rancher neighbors. They are all gone. He is the last man standing because the BLM has regulated ranchers out of business in favor of tortoises and green energy projects.

Government isn’t just brutal, vicious and over-reaching. Government is hypocritical. This same government that is supposedly acting to protect desert tortoises, killed hundreds of these same tortoises only a year ago because they didn’t have the funding to take care of them. https://www.infowars.com/before-nevada-cattle-rancher-dispute-blm-was-euthanizing-endangered-desert-tortoise/

Even more to the point, why protect desert tortoises if you’re killing cattle? Rendering trucks have been spotted at the government assault. For you city folk, rendering trucks are used to transport dead cattle. Bundy believes cattle are dropping dead in 90 degree heat after being chased by government helicopters.

https://www.wnd.com/2014/04/feds-charged-with-killing-cattle-in-nevada-range-war/

Then there’s the glaring conflicts of interest in this case. Is the Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie refusing to intervene on behalf of a Nevada family because he is afraid of losing Homeland Security funding? The Sheriff is on the Board of Directors of The Nevada Commission on Homeland Security. https://dem.nv.gov/uploadedFiles/demnvgov/content/homeland_security/APPROVED%20MINUTES_NCHS_062113_klh.pdf

And there are now reports that U.S. Senator Harry Reid and his powerful attorney son Rory Reid want Bundy’s cattle off the land to make room for a $5 billion dollar Chinese solar project.

https://www.infowars.com/breaking-sen-harry-reid-behind-blm-land-grab-of-bundy-ranch/

After Cliven Bundy’s property and rights are taken away, who will be next? Who knows what justification the BLM or corrupt government bullies like Harry Reid will use to steal your property, or beat your son for daring to take photos, or taser your pregnant daughter, or push to the ground your cancer-surviving wife.

Wake up America. Either we stand up to Big Brother, or everything our great Founding Fathers fought for will soon be gone.

Marine Kills Two At Quantico Base, Takes Own Life.

This Just In.

Fri Mar 22, 2013 6:37am EDT
(Reporting by Cynthia Johnston; Editing by Pravin Char and W Simon)

https://www.reuters.com/article/2013/03/22/us-usa-quantico-lockdown-idUSBRE92L05N20130322

(Reuters) – An active-duty Marine shot dead two fellow service members at a base at Quantico, Virginia, then barricaded himself in a building and killed himself, prompting a brief lockdown of the base, the Marines said on Friday.
The shootings took place late on Thursday near the Officer Candidate School at the Marine Corps Base in Quantico, and all three people who died were identified as Marines, Marines spokesman Sergeant Christopher Zahn said.
Zahn, who is based at Quantico, could give no details as to a motive for the shootings.
“The investigation is in the very early stages,” he said.
“An isolated shooting incident has occurred at Officer Candidate School, Quantico,” the base separately said on its Facebook page. “The suspect has been barricaded by law enforcement personnel.”
The Facebook message told base residents to remain in their homes with their doors locked, until the lockdown was lifted early on Friday.
The Marines did not name the service members who died, pending
notification of their families. ABC News quoted a military official as saying the suspect had been identified as a staff member at the cadet school, as was one of the victims.
ABC also said that the second person killed was a female Marine found dead in the barracks, but gave no further details.
The shooting, which ABC News reported took place in a barracks near the school, came days after seven U.S. Marines were killed in a mortar explosion at an Army munitions depot in Nevada during a live-fire training
n that incident on Monday, a lightweight mortar exploded prematurely in its firing tube, killing the Marines from Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, who had been undergoing mountain warfare training, and wounding eight other service members.
It prompted the Marines to order a blanket suspension of the use of 60mm mortars pending a review.

Gun-toting black Democrat threatens to harm Assembly Speaker

Just in time for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. day.
Nevada police arrested black state legislator Steven Brooks for threatening to do bodily harm to State Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick, a white female, because she did not appoint him chair of a committee.
When police apprehended Brooks, they found he had a gun in his car.
Brooks is a Democrat serving Nevada Assembly District 17 in northern Clark County. Kirkpatrick is a North Las Vegas Democrat who was recently elected speaker.
If it had been a white legislator who threatened his black colleague, would the police and media call this a racist “hate crime”?

Steven_BrooksSteven Brooks (l); Marilyn Kirkpatrick (r)

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports, Jan. 20, 2013, that Nevada State Assemblyman Steven Brooks was arrested Saturday night on a charge of threatening Nevada Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick.
State Sen. Kelvin Atkinson said he had informed Kirkpatrick of Brooks’ threat against her, and that Brooks had been telling people Kirkpatrick’s “first day as speaker would be her last.”
North Las Vegas police said Brooks, 40, was booked about 6 p.m. at the Las Vegas City Jail on a felony charge of intimidating a public officer by threat of physical violence.
Police said they responded to a home in North Las Vegas at about 3:45 p.m. Saturday in response to reported threats to an elected official, though authorities would not say who Brooks reportedly threatened.
Brooks was arrested without incident during a traffic stop near Carey Avenue and Mount Hood Street. A law enforcement source said a gun was found in Brooks’ car.
Lawmakers said they knew Brooks has been upset and felt sidelined by Kirkpatrick, who did not give him the chairmanship of the powerful Assembly Ways and Means Committee, although she did name him to the committee.
Instead, the chair job went to Assembly­woman Maggie Carlton.
One lawmaker said on condition of anonymity that Brooks seemed agitated during a recent Interim Finance Committee meeting that Carlton chaired. “He kept getting up and down and walking in and out of the meeting. He was acting a little strangely.”
The lawmaker said about three weeks ago, Brooks began approaching other Assembly members, soliciting help in ousting Kirkpatrick as leader of the lower house because he believed “she’s out to get me.” But Brooks didn’t get much support and “seemed to accept” that she would remain as leader, though he remained troubled by his situation. Kirkpatrick knew of Brooks’ efforts to remove her.
Kirkpatrick could not be reached for comment Sunday but other legislative leaders said they wanted to hear from Brooks before rushing to judgement.
Brooks is beginning his second term as an assemblyman. His first term, representing District 19 prior to re­apportionment, was largely uneventful. Assigned to the Transportation, Judiciary and Health and Human Services committees, he seldom said anything in floor debates. Kirkpatrick, however, has gained a lot of popularity, including with Republicans, who often praised her for her fairness.
According to his biography on Votesmart.org, Brooks is a former mathematics teacher. At the time of his first election in 2010, he listed his occupation as “self-employed.” He is now a city of Las Vegas management analyst, where he was paid just under $33,000 in 2011, according to a city employee listing. Brooks’ position is appointed, meaning he is not in the Las Vegas City Employees Association and is employed at will.
In a statement, city spokesman David Riggleman said, “Yes, we are aware of Steve Brooks’ arrest. As is the city’s standard practice, we will treat this situation as a personnel matter, meaning the facts surrounding it will be thoroughly reviewed. Following that review, the city will take the appropriate action.”

Update (March 30, 2013):

On March 28, 2013, Brooks was expelled from the Nevada State Assembly, after which he led police on a 15-mile high-speed chase and was arrested. Brooks tried to choke and hit a police dog with a wrench. (See “Black Nevada state legislator expelled and arrested after hi-speed police chase“)
