UPDATED December 13, 2019 – Tempe City Council removes vote on Tom Ryff settlement from the agenda

 

 

The video starts where Mayor Mark Mitchell says they are removing item 5(A)(3) from the agenda. That is the vote on Tom Ryff’s $150,000 settlement.

Props to Vice Mayor Lauren Kuby. She responded to my email and asked for further elaboration on precedent related to non-disparagement agreements and how the Arizona and federal courts interpret them.

The action by Tempe City Council last night was effectively a … Read Entire Article

Ryff Holguin1
“Coolo” cop Tom Ryff will no longer arrest Tempe citizens or place “hazard labels” on them in retaliation for speaking out in public forums about his frat-boy antics. He now will use his new internet cop to smear you and your family online.

A story was published on the Phoenix New Times website on September 12 entitled “Penile Hubris and Meth to Blame For Alleged Tempe Kid-Lurer Joseph Larosa’s Sexual Advances Towards Children?” The story is basically about a pedophile who was arrested for asking little girls if they wanted … Read Entire Article

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).

Blanchard Ryff
You have to wonder whether former Tempe “police officer” Jared Blanchard was trying to reprise the role of Cadet George Martin in the first Police Academy movie…

…or if he was simply following in the footsteps of his clownboy leader: Tempe Police Chief Tom Ryff.

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:

Tempepolicecloset.com, an online forum started by former and current Tempe officers, also alleged that Ryff saves promotions and creates paid positions for friends and … Read Entire Article

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
