Pickell named 2004 Horses Ass of the year by POAM



McKeown joins two other previous “Horse’s Ass” recipients who
are currently decommissioned. Oak Park Public Safety Director
Robert Siefert retired shortly after receiving his honor and the
inaugural winner, James B. Golden (Saginaw Police Chief) left the
city under pressure to take a job at the Philadelphia International
Airport. Golden was fired in 2004 for hiring a stripper for an
important security job at the facility.


2004 winner, Genesee County
Sheriff Bob Pickell, is the sole survivor and has entrenched himself
in the job by winning re-election last year.


Who is the 2005 POAM Horse’s Ass?

Steve Myers first brought this to my attention. Pickell insisted t was with the Prosecutors office. Nothing ever happened! The woman whose car was shot up wanted to be reimbursed.

Thus far, Inside Genesee has brought you 25 different stories of greed, dishonesty, mismanagement, and general lack of integrity by Bob Pickell. (See the list below) The sheriff has responded by saying that they are all lies but has not produced a shred of evidence to refute a single one of these claims. Why? Because, he knows that we speak the truth. Pickell is banking on voters not taking the time to do their research or else being too lazy to do anything with the truth if they have. What are you going to do about it?

• Using Department funds for motorcycles for campaign activities
• Scamming taxpayers out of $114,000 in pension overpayments
• Giving Inmates bad water
• Using the water crisis for a half a million dollar publicity stunt
• Extorting $1,800 from a business owner for one of his friends
• Skimming money from the senior millage
• Costing the taxpayers $11.5 million in lawsuits & attorneys fees
• Falling behind on techniques and technology due to age
• Poor campaign tactics (Stealing signs, framing opponents)
• Sheriff denying inmates access to legal teams
• Abuse of special deputies badges
• Lied to unions about using all union made campaign products
• Large number of inmate deaths.
• Paramedics are not properly equipped
• Lied about campaign finance
• Lost 3 automatic weapons while complaining about a t-shirt
• Scamming animal rights advocates
• Violated the Whistleblowers Protection Act
• Used perjury & lies to retaliate against deputy in a criminal case
• Named worst law enforcement executive in the state
• Refuses to turn over information to county commissioners
• Investigates his own dept instead of an outside agency
• Recently released the wrong inmate at the jail
• Unconstitutional use of narcotics checkpoints
• Paying $150,000 to Lansing businesses for attack ads

Remember when Flint got a portion of the paramedic funds?

That money trained our Flint Fire Dept. Paramedics and ensure they were licensed. Pickell said his people came into Flint too much and worked to get the money for is office.

Now the ambulances are using roaming vehicles instead of a fixed location. They beat everyone to a medical problem. I saw a county paramedic being turned away in the north end after the ambulance company took care of the problem and transport.

The newest NEW SHERIFF IN TOWN flier is in with different themes. Personally, I like Paul's Coney Island in Burton. Food is good, the place is clean and the waitresses are super nice.

THEME: ....meat the Swindler

"Just when you thought things couldn't get worse, Sheriff Bob Pickell's Undersheriff tried to strong-arm a local restaurant owner out of $5,000. Here's how it went down.

A man with some "overstocked frozen hamburger meat approached a local restaurant owner bought the meat and was immediately arrested, handcuffed, and hauled off to jail.

Paul, the restaurant owner, didn't know the meat was stolen, but Swanson did. Swanson, wanting to be a "Good cop", offered to "help" the owner out of a bad situation. The cost of Swanson's help was $5,000. Paul said "NO!" The bargaining began. Swanson said, "How about a little less than $5,000?" Paul's answer was the same, "NO"!. Finally, Swanson reduced the bribe to $1,800.

He was in no position to argue with a corrupt copwho was holding the key. So Paul accepted the deal . Now Chris Swanson, the Sheriff's Office and Genesee County are being sued. As usual, taxpayers will be left with the bill for county lawyers and a huge settlement."

"Bob Pickell is showing his true colors. Bob still has not refuted a single fact that we have presented. What has he done? Paid people an hourly rate to steal signs, framed his opponent for doing the same, created several fake Facebook profiles to spread lies and doctored images, placed threatening notes on people's cars, and had threatening phone calls made to Dan Allen supporters. Pickell knows nothing but scheming, fear, and intimidation. Bob the bully."

Got a flyer today from Pickell alleging 7th Circuit Case # 12-097479 was a sexual harrassment case against Dan Allen. Unfortunately this is a complete fabrication as the case involved former Argentine Police officer Arch Ravert.

The case is entitled Tracy Sahouri v Arch Ravert & Argentine Township.

In a second case Attorney Tom Pabst received a $650,000 settlement from the insurance company representing Argentine Township for his client, former Argentine Police Chief Terry VanKeuren. VanKeuren sued because he was said to have been retaiated against by the Argentine Board for firing Ravert and refusing to rehire him.

Pabst also represented another woman who accused Ravert of forcing her to show him her breasts after a traffic stop.

Former Argentine Township police chief says he is vindicated by $650,000 lawsuit settlement

ARGENTINE TOWNSHIP, MICHIGAN -- Former Police Chief Terry VanKeuren will receive $650,000 under a settlement reached in a case that has rattled this small town since its onset.

VanKeuren sued the Township Board and Officer Arch Ravert, claiming he was retaliated against and harassed after he conducted an investigation of Ravert.

The officer was accused of encouraging a female motorist to show her breasts to avoid a relative's arrest during a traffic stop. State police investigated the incident, and the Genesee County Prosecutor's Office concluded there was insufficient evidence to pursue charges, and no crime had been committed.

"(VanKeuren) did a very courageous thing knowing it may cost him his job, career and reputation," said Attorney Tom Pabst, who represented VanKeuren. "He's a very honest guy and did the right thing."

The amount of money appears to have stunned Township Board members, who were not informed about the settlement until after it was reached through its insurance company.

"They didn't ask us for permission or tell us the amount, the board didn't concur in it," township Attorney Lyndon Lattie said.

"We have no control if the insurance company wants to enrich one of our former employees. We didn't choose to do so... . The Township Board isn't paying taxpayer money for his whistleblower claim."

The lawsuit settlement will be paid through the township's insurance company.
Lattie said the township will pay VanKeuren's severance pay, which totals about $140,000.

VanKeuren told The Flint Journal he feels he has been vindicated.

"As chief of police I was charged with duties and one was to protect the public and I believe that's what I've done and what I was doing at that time was protect the general public," VanKeuren said.

"I did everything in my power to do that. Sometimes people that aren't a police officer or have knowledge of police work interfere, which I believe the board did. I believe they should have let me do my job. If I had to do it all over again, I'd do it all over again."

Supervisor Bob Cole and Ravert declined to comment on the settlement.

During the investigation, VanKeuren said he believed the sworn statements of the witnesses in the traffic stop and requested Ravert be fired.

In March, VanKeuren didn't return to work after a two-week suspension for refusing to cooperate with an auditor.

Pabst stated at the time that the Township Board and its attorneys forced VanKeuren to leave by threatening to fire him, changing his job duties and humiliating him publicly for filing lawsuits against the township.

Cole, however, said VanKeuren quit his job.

Ex-principal says officer’s false report ruined her career
Township had knowledge of policeman’s behavior, it’s argued; case settles

By: Michigan Lawyers Weekly Staff in Verdicts & Settlements October 11, 2012

Plaintiff Tracey Sahouri sought compensatory damages from defendants Argentine Township and Arch Ravert on claims of gross negligence, malicious prosecution and Elliot-Larson Civil Rights Act public accommodation violations.

Sahouri was principal/administrator at Hartland Schools. She contended that in 2011, Ravert, one of the township’s police officers, targeted Sahouri for sexual conquest by making sexually charged comments toward her and attempting to insinuate himself into her private life.

After Sahouri made it clear that she was not interested and rejected his advances, Ravert allegedly obtained statements from minors who were at a high school graduation party at Sahouri’s house. Subsequent charges were brought against Sahouri, claiming she knowingly allowed minors to consume alcohol at her residence.

After the incident, Sahouri’s contract as Hartland’s principal/administrator was “non-renewed,” and she was terminated from her position.

When these same minors later came forward and said Ravert’s versions of their statements were false and/or contained misrepresentations, the Genesee County prosecutor dismissed the charges.

Plaintiff said Ravert’s representations in his police reports were knowingly false and were in retaliation for Sahouri’s rejections of his advances. Further, such intentional retaliation denigrated plaintiff publicly and resulted in her career suffering.

In addition, it was established through discovery and prior lawsuits that the township had prior knowledge of Ravert’s history of using his position of authority to extort sex from women. One exhibit was a documented July 2006 incident involving Ravert pulling over a female motorist and coercing her to bare her breasts in exchange for him not arresting her nephew.

Defendants denied Ravert was engaging in such behavior toward plaintiff.

The matter was settled through facilitative mediation for $150,000.

Type of action: ELCRA public accommodation, malicious prosecution, false light invasion of privacy, tortious interference

Type of injuries: Loss of employment, emotional distress, mental anguish

Name of case: Sahouri v. Argentine Township, et al.

Court/Case no./Date: Genesee County Circuit Court; 12-97479-CL; Sept. 18, 2012

Tried before: Facilitative mediation

Name of judge: Richard Yuille

Settlement amount: $150,000

Attorneys for plaintiff: Tom Pabst, Michael Kowalko, Jarrett Pabst

Did Argentine Township have a problem with sexual harassment?

Township to pay $400k to former firefighter in sexual harassment lawsuit

Posted: Sunday, January 16, 2011 1:00 am

By Sharon Stone

 Argentine Twp. — A lawsuit filed by a former firefighter has been settled out of court for $400,000. The lawsuit was filed against former fire chief William Harvey. The settlement will be paid by the township’s insurance provider, according to Supervisor Robert Cole.

 Blythe Amenson, a former lieutenant with the Argentine Township Fire Department, filed the lawsuit in February 2010, against Harvey for alleged sexual harassment, and against Argentine Township for alleged discriminatory discharge. She was employed by the township from May 2007 until July 6, 2009.

 Amenson sought damages exceeding $25,000 for each of the six counts listed in the complaint. Cole said the case was turned over to the township’s insurance company and the insurance company was responsible for settling the complaint and paying Amenson. He said township officials had no input in the settlement.

 According to the complaint, Amenson claimed Harvey made unwelcome comments that were sexual in nature. The complaint stated that the unwelcome conduct and communications created an intimidating and hostile work environment for Amenson.

 The complaint also claimed that Amenson was discharged from her position as lieutenant of the fire department by the fire chief and Argentine Township on July 6, 2009. It stated that she was discharged from the fire department for not reaching the fire run count, yet a male firefighter who had a lower run count, remained employed.

 In October 2009, the board of trustees declined to renew Harvey’s contract as fire chief. Prior to that Harvey had been placed on paid administrative leave, pending the outcome of a criminal investigation by the Michigan State Police. No charges have been filed.

 Cole said the township has been paying more than $100,000 in annual insurance premiums with its past carrier, Burnham and Flower. The township was required to pay the $25,000 deductible to the insurance company.

 The township has recently switched insurance providers and is now insured by Nickel and Saph, said Cole. Premiums still exceed $100,000 annually; however, Cole expects that amount to decrease since he believes this was the last lawsuit to be resolved involving the township.

 Amenson said she is glad to have this behind her. During the depositions, Cole and the current fire chief, Jim Reid were very encouraging to her. “They want me to come back,” she said. “They made me feel very welcomed.”

 Not wanting to put any negative light on the fire department, as a whole, Amenson said, “I miss all those people. The guys have been phenomenal and like family to me.”

 Amenson said, after taking care of her legal fees, she donated some of her settlement money to local churches and the fire department at Christmastime when they provided gifts to local residents in need. Now, she is focusing on establishing a horseback riding program for handicapped individuals.

 Clerk Denise Graves said the township’s insurance provider indicated that the township’s premiums are expected to decrease since the last of the settlements are resolved. Township employees don’t have a contract, as they did in the past. All employees are at-will employees, meaning their employment can be terminated without breaking a contract. “We have to protect the taxpayers,” she said.

Argentine Township employee lawsuits

• Rhonda Hernandez, a former Argentine Township police officer, filed a lawsuit in 2001. The township’s insurance company awarded her $350,000 in 2003.

• Terry VanKeuren, a former Argentine Township police chief, filed a lawsuit in 2006. The township’s insurance company awarded him $650,000. The township was required to pay $140,000 back to the insurance company to cover VanKeuren’s salary for the remainder of his five-year contract.

• Michele Russ, a former Argentine Township police officer filed a lawsuit in 2007. The township was required to pay its $25,000 deductible to the insurance company and $75,000 (in two payments of $37,500) to Russ, in back pay.

ORDER GRANTING DEFENDANTS' MOTION TO DISMISS AND DENYING PLAINTIFFS' MOTION FOR DISCOVERY

TERRENCE G. BERG, District Judge.

Now before the Court is Defendants' September 17, 2013 motion to dismiss (Dkt. 11). Having reviewed the motion and the remainder of the record, the Court finds that these documents adequately present the issues now before the Court, and that oral argument would not aid the decision. Accordingly, the Court will decide the motion without a hearing. E.D. Mich. LR 7.1(f)(2).

Plaintiffs have also moved for discovery and disclosure. (Dkt. 10.)

For the reasons set forth below, the Defendants' motion to dismiss (Dkt. 11) is GRANTED, and Plaintiffs' motion for discovery (Dkt. 10) is DENIED as moot.

I. BACKGROUND

On March 21, 2013, Plaintiffs filed their pro se complaint in Michigan's 7th Circuit Court, Genesee County, against Defendants, who are all employees of Genesee County 911, Argentine Township, or the Argentine Township Police Department. (Dkt. 1 at 8-17.) Plaintiffs claim that Defendants violated (1) their right to equal protection of the laws under "the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments" to the United States Constitution, and (2) Michigan Compiled Laws 764.15c and 776.22(1). (Dkt. 1 at 10.) All the claims appear to stem from one incident in which the Defendants allegedly failed to adequately investigate an incident of violence, specifically an assault in which "the cable guy" allegedly punched Plaintiff Daniel Bergeron. (Dkt. 1 at 13.)

Defendants removed the case to this Court on April 19, 2013, under 28 U.S.C. §1441 and 28 U.S.C. §1331. (Dkt 1.)

On August 21, 2013, the parties agreed to dismiss Defendants Fayling, Ferguson, and Seyfried, leaving only Defendants Allen and Cole. (Dkt. 9.) Defendants Allen and Cole have now moved to dismiss the complaint. (Dkt. 11.) Plaintiffs did not file a response to Defendants' motion to dismiss.

II. LEGAL STANDARD

A Rule 12(c) motion tests whether a legally sufficient claim has been pleaded, and provides for dismissal when a plaintiff fails to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(c); see Lindsay v. Yates, 498 F.3d 434, 437 n.5 (6th Cir. 2007). "To survive a motion to dismiss, a complaint must contain sufficient factual matter, accepted as true, to `state a claim to relief that is plausible on its face.'" Ashcroft v. Iqbal, 556 U.S. 662, 678 (2009) (quoting Bell Atl. Corp. v. Twombly, 550 U.S. 544, 555 (2007)). A claim is facially plausible when a plaintiff pleads factual content that permits a court to reasonably infer that the defendant is liable for the alleged misconduct. Id. (citing Twombly, 550 U.S. at 556). When assessing whether a plaintiff has set forth a "plausible" claim, the district court must accept all of the complaint's factual allegations as true. See Ziegler v. IBP Hog Mkt., Inc., 249 F.3d 509, 512 (6th Cir. 2001). "Mere conclusions," however, "are not entitled to the assumption of truth. While legal conclusions can provide the complaint's framework, they must be supported by factual allegations." Iqbal, 556 U.S. at 664. A plaintiff must provide "more than labels and conclusions," or "a formulaic recitation of the elements of a cause of action." Twombly, 550 U.S. at 556. Therefore, "[t]hreadbare recitals of the elements of a cause of action, supported by mere conclusory statements, do not suffice." Iqbal, 556 U.S. at 678.

In ruling on a motion to dismiss, the Court may consider the complaint as well as (1) documents that are referenced in the plaintiff's complaint or that are central to plaintiff's claims, (2) matters of which a court may take judicial notice, and (3) documents that are a matter of public record. See Tellabs, Inc. v. Makor Issues & Rights, Ltd., 551 U.S. 308, 322 (2007); see also Greenberg v. Life Ins. Co. of Virginia, 177 F.3d 507, 514 (6th Cir. 1999) (finding that documents attached to a motion to dismiss that are referred to in the complaint and central to the claim are deemed part of the pleadings).

III. ANALYSIS

Defendants have moved to dismiss the complaint, asserting both that it fails to state a claim on its face and that their conduct is protected by qualified immunity. (Dkt. 11 at 3-14.)

The Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment forbids a state from denying "to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." U.S. Const. amend. XIV, § 1. "To state an equal protection claim, a plaintiff must adequately plead that the government treated the plaintiff `disparately as compared to similarly situated persons and that such disparate treatment either burdens a fundamental right, targets a suspect class, or has no rational basis.'" Ctr. for Bio-Ethical Reform, Inc. v. Napolitano, 648 F.3d 365, 379 (6th Cir. 2011) (quoting Club Italia Soccer & Sports Org., Inc. v. Charter Twp. of Shelby, Mich., 470 F.3d 286, 299 (6th Cir. 2006)).

When a defendant raises a defense of qualified immunity, the plaintiff bears the burden of pleading facts that would be sufficient to show that the defendant is not entitled to its protection. See Reilly v. Vadlamudi, 680 F.3d 617, 623 (6th Cir. 2012). "Qualified immunity shields federal and state officials from money damages unless a plaintiff pleads facts showing (1) that the official violated a statutory or constitutional right, and (2) that the right was `clearly established' at the time of the challenged conduct." Ashcroft v. al-Kidd, 131 S.Ct. 2074, 2080 (2011) (quoting Harlow v. Fitzgerald, 457 U.S. 800, 818 (1982)).

Plaintiffs' complaint plainly fails to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. While the complaint invokes the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution, there is no allegation of any fact that could possibly be a violation of that Amendment—there is no suggestion at all of an unreasonable search or seizure. See U.S. Const. amend. XIV, § 1. As to the Fourteenth Amendment, the factual allegations do not establish or support an Equal Protection claim, most notably because there is no allegation of disparate treatment—there is no suggestion whatsoever that Plaintiffs have been treated any differently from other similarly situated persons or that such disparate treatment either burdened a fundamental right, targeted a suspect class, or lacked any rational basis. As to the question of whether defendants are entitled to qualified immunity, there is no need to address this issue because the complaint does not adequately allege a constitutional violation.

Therefore, Count I must be dismissed for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. In the absence of any viable federal claims, the Court declines to retain jurisdiction over the remaining state claim, 28 U.S.C. § 1367(c), and Count II is therefore also dismissed.1

IV. CONCLUSION

For the reasons set forth above, it is hereby ORDERED that the Defendants' motion to dismiss (Dkt. 11) is GRANTED and the complaint is DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE. It is FURTHER ORDERED that Plaintiffs' motion for discovery (Dkt. 10) is DENIED as moot.

SO ORDERED.

FootNotes


1. Plaintiffs sent a letter to the Court on May 5, 2014, which the Clerk's Office entered on the docket as Document 19, informing the Court that the Court's November 8, 2013 order requiring a response from Defendants "has not been followed to the best of our knowledge, as we have not received a response from either the honorable court nor the Defendants . . . ." (Dkt. 19.) The Court notes that the Defendants responded to the November 8, 2013 order on November 12, 2013. (Dkt. 18.) The Defendants' response was filed with the Court and docketed. Defendants also attested that they mailed a copy of the response to Plaintiffs. (Dkt. 18 at 4.)
Plaintiffs also submitted to the Court on May 5, 2014, an "addendum to the original complaint," which the Clerk's Office entered on the docket as Document 20. (Dkt. 20.) This addendum is untimely under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, but even if it were considered, it does not alter the Court's determination on the motion to dismiss.

How is this a "police abuse " case?

I find it hard to believe Pickell paid $150,000 for a company to print this mess.

I don't find a dozen other cases involving this Dan Allen as there are at least 4 Dan Allen's (different middle names). Also some cases have multiple entries for counter suits, etc..
