Mayor Matthew Jolibois Resignation

Mayor Matthew Jolibois Resignation

Twenty years of Fircrest City Council corruption trashed my life.

John and Matthew Jolibois were personally involved in trashing my life [1997-2017].

During this election John Jolibois fully aware of the truth in my situation, never-the-less spread rabid lies about me.

He committed numerous instances of vicious slander and libel on "Fircrest Opines" and "Straight Outta Fircrest" attacking my reputation and credibility.

The Admins of both Fircrest Community Sites ... did little [nothing] to stop John Jolibois.
John Jolibois fully cooperated in every aspect of this False Sex Offender Registration.

John Jolibois fully cooperated in the subsequent cover-up.

John Jolibois fully cooperated in the hasty out of court settlement when Karen Lawson's attorney filed lawsuit of which False Sex Offender Registration was a major issue.

John Jolibois attended January 29, 1998 illegal city hall meeting between city officials, police, and neighbors when conspiracy to register me through back door failed to force me to leave Fircrest.

John Jolibois fully participated in firing Police Chief Kenoyer as the scapegoat.

Probation Officer Gallegos,

"Your honor it was a million-to-one fluke Mr. Collins was charged with this crime."

Judge Hogan did not order me to register as a sex offender.

Fircrest City Hall whistle blower informed me there had been a series of private [illegal] meetings at city hall between city officials, police, and neighbors concerning registering me as a sex offender to force me to leave Fircrest.

Fircrest officials did not have authority to register me as a sex offender, so the decision was a back door operation.

January 29, 1998 _ Karen Lawson's attorney infiltrated a private meeting  and discovered the "Fircrest Civil Rights Conspiracy".

John Jolibois
Fircrest City Council
Viafore, Police Chief Kenoyer, City Manager Richards, City Attorney Smith, Bill & Pam Hannon, Kristine & Kenneth Walls, James Monroe boasted
about what they had done to Karen Lawson and me.


City Attorney Smith boasted of “hiding evidence” of Karen Lawson's dogs being grand-fathered.

Bill & Pam Hannon and Kristine & Kenneth Walls were particularly vicious, and angry because city officials promised registering
[without legal authority] me as a sex offender would
guarantee I would go with the dogs.

My name did not appear because Pierce County Sheriff
[Sex Offender Unit] concurred with Superior Court Order.


Note: _ Police Chief Kenoyer and Officer Sealy served order to
register within 24 hours or be arrested on Class C Felony.


Order was issued at approximately 5 PM - Friday afternoon.

Sex Offender Unit was closed until 8 AM the following Monday
[68 hours - and the written order gave me 24 hours].


Kenoyer ordered me to register immediately.

Detective Wilke was waiting for me and immediately registered
me as a sex offender through the back door.
Composite of Three Documents Purged to Hide Evidence
Document _ December 8, 1983 Was Not Allowed Into Evidence
At Judge-Only Trial
My attorney told me the judge and prosecutor were aware I had been framed by the Army. I was ordered to plead guilty for six months protective custody. In six months I would be discharged from the Army and free to get on with my life. He told me if I was acquitted in a jury trial and returned to Fort Lewis I probably would be killed. December 3, 1981 I had been killed in a mole operation.
Note: _ "not criminally insane"

"not suffering from a major mental illness"

Accused of being a whistle blower.
Note: _ "consensual sexual liaison"
Found criminally insane and sentenced twenty-to-life on locked ward for criminally insane. Medication was not required.

I was warehoused as a military prisoner.

Military Intelligence Reprisal Psychiatry.
For the most part agitators and hecklers ] I have encountered on "Fircrest Opines" and "Straight Outta Fircrest" appear to be "Friends of Fircrest City Hall".

They say I am making this all about me all about me.  Hmm.  Well let's see ...

[ 1 ]   I sounded the alarm  on RV Code rewrite fraud.  City Council politicians denied a decision had been made and insisted conversation be put-off until after the election.

[ 2 ]   I sounded the alarm on land-grab annexation.  City Council politicians denied a decision had been made and insisted conversation be put-off until after the election.

[ 3 ]   I sounded the alarm on Mayor Matthew Jolibois named as the respondent in domestic violence civil case. City Council politicians insisted conversation be put-off until after the election.

[ 4 ]   I sounded the alarm on Mayor Matthew Jolibois and City Council corruption,  City Council politicians insisted conversation be put-off until after the election.

[ 5 ]   I sounded the alarm on [ 7 years ... 2011-2017 ] City Council censorship of Fircrest crime statistics.

Critics were correct ... I made this all about me ... standing-up to Fircrest City Council corruption for twenty years.

I should have made this all about citizens of Fircrest not demanding accountability from Fircrest Planning Department and City Council.

I should be making this about "Friends of Fircrest City Hall" bullying, intimidating, shouting-down any citizen who expresses concerns and comments  on "Fircrest Opines" and "Straight Outta Fircrest" with a negative comment concerning city hall.


This was perhaps the most important election in the history of Fircrest.


City Council deceived the citizens of Fircrest in issue after issue.

City Council deception has been exposed.

City Council participated in Domestic Violence cover-up to deceive citizens and  reelect Matthew Jolibois.

The last public document Matthew Jolibois signed as mayor was October 5, 2017 well before the election, and continued to masquerade as mayor with "Mayor" Hunter signing all documents.

Matthew Jolibois officially resigned November 15, 2017.

Twenty years of Fircrest City Council corruption trashed my life.

John and Matthew Jolibois have personally been  involved in trashing my life [1997-2017].

Tape Recordings _ Defense Intelligence Agency Officer Discussing My Case
Tape recorded conversation with Defense Intelligence Agency [DIA] officer regarding being framed  by Pierce County Sheriff [June 1983] for rape.

I was framed to ruin my reputation and credibility as a witness [whistle blower to murder cover-up].

Tape recording was made less than one week after I was illegally registered [August 21, 1997] as a Level 1 Registered Sex Offender [for life] through the back door in efforts to force me to leave Fircrest.

John Jolibois participated in private [illegal] meetings in Fircrest City Hall between city officials, police, and neighbors agreeing to register me as a sex offender without authority to do so.

Fircrest City Council [including John Jolibois] fully cooperated in the plan, and cover-up when the truth was uncovered by attorney January 29, 1998.

John Jolibois also was present when Police Chief Kenoyer was forced as scapegoat to retire.

The comments and personal attacks John Jolibois has bombarded me with are Libel and he fully knows the truth.

John Jolibois shouts loudly to mask and to divert his personal involvement in 20 years of civil rights, and felony crimes and associated cover-up targeting Karen Lawson and me.

John Jolibois intimidating and bullying readers on "Fircrest Opines" when they ask questions concerning integrity of Matthew Jolibois, running for reelection to City Council, and numerous - vicious personal attacks on me with statements he knows are not true - Libel.

State and federal authorities several times warned _ "Leave Dan Collins alone."

For two years [1995-1997] Department of Corrections refused to register me as a sex offender.

John Jolibois and City Council were in possession of Superior Court Release Hearing transcript dated January 14, 1997 when they participated in my unlawful registration August 21, 1997.

Transcript included Probation Officer Gallegos, "Your honor it was a million-to-one fluke Mr. Collins was charged with this crime."

Judge Vicki Hogan, "Dan just get on with your life."

Judge Hogan did not require me to register as a sex offender.

Pierce County Sheriff [Sex Offender Unit] did not object to Judge Hogan's decision.

Fircrest authorities did not have the authority to order me to register as a sex offender ot face immediate arrest.
Rebuttal to John Jolibois' repeated Libel against me on Fircrest Opines" as a diversion to others commenting against his brother Fircrest Mayor, Matthew Jolibois _ candidate for reelection to City Council, and cover-up of Domestic Violence Civil Action with Matthew Jolibois named as Respondent.
Rebuttal To John Jolibois Personal Attacks On "Fircrest Opines"     November 4, 2017
Election _ November 7, 2017   Fircrest City Council

Mayor Matthew Jolibois, running for reelection ___ Too Many Questions go unanswered.

Matthew Jolibois when pressed to explain what he has accomplished in two years, gives a really short list.

One thing Jolibois does not talk about is the major land-grab annexation.

What is so devious about the land-grab _ no one wants to make an election issue out of it?

Mayor Jolibois team of political operatives including his brother John and his mother shouting-down opposition asking embarrassing questions on "Fircrest Opines" and "Straight Outta Fircrest" ...

Mayor Jolibois participated in cover-up of two major criminal investigations of city hall corruption, of which he had been a willing participant.

Mayor Matthew Jolibois refused to admit to Domestic Violence Civil Action taken against him, and his brother John Jolibois has been vocal and intimidating on "Fircrest Opines" and "Straight Outta Fircrest" shouting-down anyone asking questions.

John Jolibois served on the City Council and participated in the cover-up of numerous civil rights, and felony crimes.

Cover-up is nothing new to John.

Cover-up of the week is Domestic Violence in which Mayor Jolibois is the Respondent.
Matthew Jolibois _ Unfit For Reelection to City Council
Amendments to FMC Sections 22.58   [ Scam run by City Council to Defraud Targeted Citizens of Fircrest ]

Short-term Rental Establishments, Home Occupations, Outdoor Storage of Vehicles and Chapter 22.98 Definitions.

All candidates are avoiding discussion concerning land grab annexation and Marijuana Store in Fircrest, putting these questions off until after election
On Matthew Jolibois Watch _ City Council Attempted to Defraud Targeted Citizens of Fircrest
For the most part the only affected citizens whom were intentionally notified were "Friends of City Hall" ... Some others found out on Facebook.

Facebook is one thing, and notices are not really attention grabbers.

Nothing builds excitement and community attention like a "Good Old Fashioned" letter in the mail box.

Notification was the last thing City Council wanted.

"Surprise" ... "You have been targeted in the new Municipal Code rewrite, and you are in violation."

City Code FMC 22.58 rewrite targeting RV and other vehicles, exposed as
fraud.

Question:  _  Who connected to Fircrest City Hall stands to make a profit storing those vehicles?

Answer: _  "City has a vacant lot and will charge $20.00 a month for each vehicle in storage."

Embarrassed City Council moves decision to November
after election.
Jerry Foss was the Planning Commissioner who engineered this FMC rewrite targeting a specific neighbor, and at least two other neighbors.

The pissing contest between Foss and his neighbor[s] will
adversely affect many Fircrest citizens [voters] whom do not live on Paradise Parkway.

Foss and Fircrest City Council  pushing revision of  FMC 22.58.024  Outdoor
parking or storage of vehicles  are operating in Conflict of Interest.

When I went public on the Internet ... suddenly ... Foss was no longer a Planning Commissioner.  Fluke ... I think not. 

Conspiracy to cover-up Fircrest City Hall corruption ...definitely!


Conflict of Interest

Term used in connection with public officials and their relationship to matters of private interest or gain to them.

[ 1 ] _ Generally, when used to suggest disqualification of a public official from performing his sworn duty, term conflict of interest refers to a clash between public interest and the private interest of the individual concerned.

[ 2 ] _ A situation in which regard for one duty tends to lead to disregard of another.

Fircrest City Hall officials
intentionally did not inform individuals whom are to be targeted in violation of revised  FMC 22.58.024  Outdoor parking or storage of vehicles


Fraud

A false representation of a matter of fact—whether by words or by conduct, by false or misleading allegations, or by concealment of what should have been disclosed—that deceives and is intended to deceive another so that the individual will act upon it to her or his legal injury.
Conspiracy Against the Citizens of Fircrest

Conspiracy
: _ A combination or confederacy between two or more persons formed for the purpose of committing, by their efforts, some unlawful or criminal act, or some act which is lawful in itself, but becomes unlawful when done by the concerted action of the conspirators, or for the purpose of using criminal or unlawful means to the commission of an act not in itself unlawful.

A person is guilty of conspiracy with another person or persons to commit a crime if with the purpose of promoting or facilitating its commission he: agrees with such other person or persons that they or one or more of them will engage in conduct which constitutes such crime or an attempt or solicitation to commit such crime; or agrees to aid such other person or persons in the planning or commission of such crime or of an attempt or solicitation to commit such crime.

A conspiracy may be a continuing one; actors may drop out, and others drop in; details of the operation may change from time to time; the members need not know each other or the part played by others; a member need not know all details of the plan or operations; he must, however, know the purpose of the conspiracy and agree to become a party to a plan to effectuate that purpose.
Addendum:  _ October 29, 2017   Responded this morning to a woman on "Straight Outta Fircrest" that she was not a coward.

My Response:

Am I missing something here? I did not call you a coward.

The web site title refers to politicians, neighbors, police operating under Color of Law.

Private [illegal] meetings at city hall between city officials, neighbors, and police. Whistle blower notified me of a planned [conspiracy] meeting.

Attorney infiltrated that meeting. ... There are those critics on "Straight Outta Fircrest" and "Fircrest Opines" whom despise my lengthy narratives _ but you have the right to this communication _ so here goes.

No one noticed attorneys presence until near end of meeting. Following is verbatim narrative from attorney notes.

[Yes I voted for Viafore in 2017 election ... I have my reasons] ...

David M. Viafore, Police Chief Kenoyer, City Manager Richards, City Attorney Smith, Bill & Pam Hannon, Kristine & Kenneth Walls, and James Monroe boasted about what they had done to Karen Lawson and me. [Walls and I currently are semi-friendly].

City Attorney Smith boasted of "hiding evidence" of Lawson's dogs being grand-fathered...

Bill & Pam Hannon and Kristine & Kenneth Walls were particularly vicious, and angry because city officials promised registering [without authority] me as a sex offender would guarantee I would go with the dogs...

Bill Hannon, "We believed that if we took away her dogs he would also go!"

Pam Hannon, "We believed what lives next door would go with the dogs!"

Kristine Walls, "For my husband Kenneth and me this has always been about property values!"

Kenneth Walls, "It was a done deal! We got sold down the river!"

Mayor Viafore, "Dan Collins is ninety percent of the problem! This will come before planning department again, and again!"

Police Chief Kenoyer, "If any of you have a problem with Collins, contact me on my cell phone and I'll handle Dan Collins personally!"

Kenoyer gave neighbors his cell phone number...

After the meeting Police Chief Kenoyer explained to the attorney...

"I was pressured [Viafore _ Bill & Pam Hannon _ Kenneth & Kristine Walls] to register Dan Collins as a sex offender. I might have acted hastily. We believed it would be easier to force Collins to leave Fircrest."

They did not stop there.

Harassment, vandalism, destruction of private property, threats of physical violence, including death threats.

911 brought Fircrest Police whom read me [crime victim] my Miranda Rights.

1995-1997 _ Department of Corrections refused to register me as a sex offender.

January 14, 1997 _ Superior Court _ Probation Officer Gallego's _ "Your honor it was a million-to-one fluke Mr. Collins was charged with this crime."

Judge Hogan told me to get on with my life, and did not order me to register as a sex offender.

Pierce County Sheriff  [Sex Offender Unit] did not object.

I was registered through the backdoor after normal business hours, Friday afternoon ... without authority.

Governor Gregoire sealed my state file.

For 20 years the Liberal Good Old Boy Network has blocked my constitutional right to be represented by an attorney to prevent opening my case to a jury in a lawsuit against Washington State.

The Jolibois boys, John and Matthew have always [1997-2017] been involved in this.

Matthew Jolibois targeted me in the RV rewrite way back in June [June].

Twenty years and the City Council are still trying to run me out of Fircrest.

The Cowards of Fircrest are in City Hall. ....

John Jolibois is well aware Pierce County Sheriff participated in framing me for rape to ruin my reputation and credibility as a witness. Intelligence officer told detective they had nothing on me and they could not do anything to me.

The detective responded, "Our mission, and our orders are to get him."

John Jolibois [low life] attempted on "Straight Outta Fircrest" to deflect my comments and attack my credibility [see next two lines].

John Jolibolis told the following lie concerning me.  He knew the truth from February to August 1997.

“For those who are seeing this gross representation of politics for the first time and have been electronically introduced to your medically diagnosed insane and convicted criminal neighbor, welcome to Fircrest.”

January 29, 1998 _ John Jolibois was present at an illegal city officials, police, and neighbors meeting discussing their roles in my illegal backdoor registration as a Level 1 Registered Sex Offender ... and their plan falling apart because I still refused to leave Fircrest.

July 1998 _ John Jolibois was on the city council and present when Police Chief Kenoyer was forced to retire because of his role in my illegal registration as a sex offender.

John Jolibois _ Commented _ "Any previous silence was to see just how far Matt’s opponents were going to take this National Enquire political display. And this has moved well beyond an election and gotten personal so yes, there will be no hesitation to respond to this expose’ legally, and that is not a threat, that is the fact. For those who are seeing this gross representation of politics for the first time and have been electronically introduced to your medically diagnosed insane and convicted criminal neighbor, welcome to Fircrest.

John Jolibois was on the City Council in 1997 when a neighbor forced his way into Karen Lawson’s residence and assaulted me. 

Fircrest Police Department covered-up and initiated efforts to take her dogs away in the belief I would go with the dogs.

When Lawson appeared before the Planning Commission seeking a variance, neighbors hissed and booed, constantly interrupted her.

... neighbors hissed and booed, constantly interrupted her.

When I took the floor all I could see was the tops of heads. No one would look up.  No one would make eye contact.

... all I could see was the tops of heads.

... No one would look up. 

... No one would make eye contact.

Neighbor Norm Gustin was Planning Commissioner and chaired the meeting. He denied our right to verbal rebuttal.

When he announced request for variance was denied, the mob was on their feet cheering.

Strange behavior for a dog variance [strange behavior].

... variance was denied,

... the mob was on their feet cheering.

City Council [and John Jolibois] had court transcript seven months [February - August 21, 1997]  when they registered me as a sex offender through the backdoor, on Friday afternoon, after normal business hours.

I have never been convicted of a crime.

The Western State Hospital court letter dated December 8, 1983 was not allowed into evidence at my judge-only Military Intelligence controlled civil trial.

Document states,

“Upon admission Mr. Collins was alert, cooperative and oriented... his mood and affect were appropriate... delusions or hallucinations were not noted... he was neither suicidal nor homicidal, and was reasonable & realistic _ consensual sexual liaison and despite two reports from Western State Hospital saying that Mr. Collins was not criminally insane  and that he was not suffering from major mental illness...”
