Tempe Police Chief Tom Ryff Still Has Skeletons In The Closet

UPDATED 5/16/2011: TEMPEPOLICECLOSET.COM Back Up and Running

It came back up sometime last week. After quickly perusing the site for any new information, it appears the 14-year-old kid/SEO engineer we said Ryff hired to try and hide his true self on the internet is named Justin McHood. He also created the rogue Eleanor Holguin website, which depicted her as some sort of crazy goon (the site has since been taken off the web).

The story of Blanchard has been talked about on local news outlets and publications for the past couple days. Blanchard resigned from the Tempe Police Department this week after admitting to “using his position” to have sex with women. There were several … Read Entire Article

If Tempe Police goons are ordered by Chief Tom Ryff to designate this seemingly sweet, harmless woman a “hazard,” no telling what they’ll eventually try and do to my black ass.

CBS 5 (KPHO), which is the only television network in this city with a backbone, interviewed Ms. Eleanor Holguin a couple weeks ago after she called 911 to aid her elderly father. But instead of being greeted by friendly, helpful paramedics, Tempe Police thugs showed up, and the paramedics who showed up quizzed her before helping her. Here is the report:

Pennsylvania and Arizona have similar concealed weapons laws, so the only item at issue is whether or not the dog was under control when Jurjevich shot him. “If a

The saying goes “once is a chance, twice a coincidence, three times a pattern,” but the proverb needs amending when it comes to Tempe criminal cops, especially Officer Mike Wallace. As many of you know, a notice of claim was served on the City of Tempe and the Tempe Police Department on my behalf, which also named three specific officers: “Johnson”, Detective Jeff Loewenhagen, and Wallace. In the course of my research tonight, as a federal lawsuit will be filed against Tempe without settlement of the claim by mid-March, I found this … Read Entire Article
