MY ANCHOR PODCAST, STICK IT TO THE MAN SHOW, w/JahTRISTA4SHERIFF (Season 1). LETTERS TO THE US CONGRESS — season 2 of STICK IT TO THE MAN SHOW w/Trista4 Sheriff, includes 100 Articles of Impeachment‘ & ’12 Things We Must Fix In Our Electoral System or We’re Totally Screwed’.

IT’S OFFICIAL! 🙂 I’M RUNNIN’ for Pima County Sheriff (Aug.4/Nov.3). I’m an ‘official’ write-in sheriff candidate, after filing financial disclosure forms (unlike tRump!), & if people write in some variant of ‘TRISTA’ Aug.4/Nov.3rd, votes for me will be counted & I could feasibly win – especially because most people hate cops right now!

MY PLATFORM FOR PIMA SHERIFF IN TUCSON, AZ (Aug.4/Nov.3):

1) NO MORE POLICE BRUTALITY OR IMPUNITY FROM IT. As yer Sheriff, I will put a stop to #policebrutality OVERNITE ! There will be independent review, not internal departmental review of any public complaints of misconduct by OUR deputies & it will go down on their permanent record. As it is currently, these records of misconduct are TEMPORARY! That’s not fair! & Sheriff Napier better not shred those documents as he’s leaving! I have demanded he not destroy that evidence, because those cases will be re-opened & reviewed to determine who will be let go based on a track record of abuse & misconduct among OUR law enforcement. White Supremacist Terrorists among the ranks of OUR law enforcement will be fired without severance pay. Officers in good standing will be either uptrained or retired to deskjobs; new deputies will be hired; half women & representative of our demographics as a county. More social workers.

2) FIRST DAY: PURGE THE ABUSIVE COPS. Fire ‘bad apples’ like the appropriately named Dep. Manuel Van Saten who tackled limbless teen & Napier gave him paid administrative leave; Dep. Knerr who roughed me up probably as favor to 45 on Apr 19, 2019;  & the deputies who gave my mom a heart attack by showing up at 4am in Nov 2014. Any deputies with complaints of misconduct or unnecessary use of force will be FIRST TO GO- fired with no severance pay.

3) I will END QUOTAS, not just for speeding & parking tickets, but daily quotas both Nanos AND Napier imposed on all our deputies to bring to JAIL at LEAST ONE PERSON EVERY DAY. Yes that’s right, due to for-profit prison industry – & fact sheriffs departments make $ off our misery — both Dems & GOP elected sheriffs ordered all deputies to bring to jail at least ONE PERSON DAILY; CITE 1 PERSON; & have over 430 public contacts per month. I’ll get rid of all that pressure, which, I’d argue would make the difference between getting ticketed & having to take time off work to go to court or ‘let off’ with a warning, & a higher risk of getting ‘racial profiled’ into an encounter with an officer, who then is more likely manufactures ‘probable cause’. NOT having these meddlesome quotas will benefit everyone, even make the deputy’s job safer & easier. Instead, deputies under my command will be encouraged to issue warnings as FIRST OPTION = More convenient & fair to Pima County residents! Democrats AND Republicans can breathe a sigh of relief under a Chang administration, because the way this ‘Babylon system’ is currently, Americans are understandably distrustful & frightened of police, when the police are tasked with protecting and serving us.  Some may argue that citations are where ‘the city makes its money off us’. Well, I’d argue the purpose of ticketing is not to ‘make money’ off of citizenry, but to make our communities safer. I am against hassling taxpayers with bureaucratic redtape which, in the event of financial or other hardship would endanger or otherwise restrict our constitutional RIGHT OF MOVEMENT. The combined effect of all these quotas, I argue leads to law enforcement seeing the public as some kind of ‘cashcow’ that they make money off of, & therefore cite us when a warning would often suffice. Furthermore, officers are as a matter of course now fudging evidence & lying in reports. So:

4) FELONIES FOR FABRICATING EVIDENCE. I will enact severe penalties to deter cops from fabricating evidence & call for this misconduct to be treated as a felony that goes down on their permanent record.

5) I am in favor of implementing a system of OPEN, PERFECTLY TRANSPARENT & PUBLICLY ACCESSIBLE PUBLIC FILES ON ALL DEPUTIES, in order to ‘Keep ‘Em Honest’!  

6) All deputies will be issued MANDATORY BODYCAMS, RECORDING AT ALL TIMES DURING THEIR SHIFTS, which should cut down on the rampant abuse that has shamefully become commonplace in OUR law enforcement. Wearing body cams has been conclusively proven to cut more than half the number of public complaints regarding abuse or unnecessary use of force. Incidentally, I have asked department employee why only audio recordings are made currently by the PCSD; I was told bodycams are ‘too expensive’, although with a budget of $135 million dollars, this seems unlikely! I am SURE we can afford bodycams for 500 deputies.

7) The first thing I will do is FREE THE KIDS IN CAGES; RE-UNITE THEM W/FAMILIES. Any kids who have ‘disappeared’, I WILL CALL FOR AN IMMEDIATE INVESTIGATION INTO THEIR WHEREABOUTS & OFFENDING PARTIE/S will BE CHARGED W/ KIDNAPPING/CHILD-TRAFFICKING.

8) ISSUE PUBLIC APOLOGY FOR MISTREATMENT OF REFUGEES under Trump Administration; they will become NEW IMMIGRANTS.

9) CALL FOR CITIZENSHIP TO BE GRANTED TO ASYLUM-SEEKERS WHO WERE TURNED AWAY/HELD UNLAWFULLY UNDER THIS CRIMINAL ADMINISTRATION.

10) I will not allow ICE to interfere in our immigration policy; I’m in favor of  #DefundICE, maybe even #AbolishICE & transfer Arizona ICE agents into other positions, maybe deskjobs, or Arizona Ranger positions, if they have a good record of service.

11) NO MORE PETTY POT BUSTS! #42042020! & DROP ALL Past & Pending CHARGES FOR CANNABIS POSSESSION & ‘FREE THE STONERS’ from prison immediately, & expunge their record & return the steep $2500 fines they paid for petty possession charges.

12) RAISE SALARIES OF DEPUTIES, GIVE MORE VACATION TIME, BENEFITS.

13) UP/RE-TRAIN W/CONFLICT RESOLUTION, DE-ESCALATION SKILLS, MENTAL HEALTH & PARAMEDIC CERTIFICATION (Like firefighters!)

14) IMPLEMENT SYSTEM OF REWARDS FOR EXEMPLARY PUBLIC REVIEWS FOR GOOD CONDUCT & PROFESSIONALISM. In my podcast, STICK IT TO THE MAN w/Trista SHOW, I have proposed several ways we can make interactions with law enforcement safe & transparent, even enjoyable.

15) I HAVE CALLED & WILL CALL FOR JUSTICE IN #POLICEBRUTALITY CASES ACROSS THE COUNTRY, NOT JUST IN TUCSON, AZ. I support the #defundthepolice movement & seek #BLM endorsements across the country (Sign the guestbook & give my campaign yer blessing/endorsement!). It is tragically obvious to all but the most racist of traitors in Amerikkka that OUR law enforcement system is broken & cruel, & must be redesigned on a massive scale. To this end, I have called for #Justice4All, & demanded & will continue to demand arrests & assault/murder chargesbrought against abusive cops involved in several cases across the country (#GeorgeFloyd, #BreonnaTaylor, #VanessaGuillen, #VauhxxBooker, #ElijahMcClain, #AhmaudArbery, & others)& in Tucson, too – Carlos Ingram-Lopez & the limbless teen assaulted by Dep. Manuel Van Satan.

16) ABUSIVE COPS WILL BE PURGED! Here’s a head’s-up to all the abusive cops in OUR Pima Sheriffs Department – start lookin’ for a new job!

15) #DefundThePolice! : I am probably the only sheriff candidate in the U.S. who pledges HALF the department’s budget to be spent on Health & Human Services — such as behavioral health, mental health, counseling & substance abuse programs that DO NOT go on people’s record, & therefore ruin their lives & chances of getting employment & a place to live.  I can pretty much guarantee I am the only sheriff candidate in America open to alternative treatments for substance addiction, such as indigenous-administered entheogens like peyote, which have an 80% success rate in treatment of substance addictions (compared to 10% for methadone, which is equivalent to a placebo).

VP/President, Progressive Party USA: Listen to my podcast self-nominating as VP or Presidential candidate for the Progressive Party here. I stick it to the man pretty hard in this episode. Bernie doesn’t owe DNC anything, does he! But he bowed out of the campaign- again- & now 60 percent of the American public have nobody to vote for! Or more, actually if you count all the hardcore Bernie supporters who will sit out the race #bernieorbust- unless he is on the ballot. So, I volunteer my services as supremely qualified VP or Presidential nominee – whichever works best strategically- for Teddy Roosevelt’s ole #PROGRESSIVEPARTYUSA! Bernie can be on the ballot, or if he wishes to continue kowtowing to CORRUPTAF DNC, there’s always Ralph Nader! Never has the American public perhaps been so ready for a third party than NOW! Amerikkkans are fed up with the corrupt two-party system, with both parties, as Uncle @RalphNader puts it, ‘dialing for the same dollars’.

Governor of Arizona, 2022: Everything I stand for as Pima County Sheriff (see above) applies on the statewide level. We will FREE THE KIDS IN CAGES; we will #CloseDownTheCamps (so I expect Moveon.org will endorse me); Arizona will go the way of its neighbors in terms of recreationalization of cannabis, which will rake in tons of dough, like it did for Colorado, California & all the other states that have ‘gone green’. Non-violent offenders will be released; we’ll abolish cash-bail (which just imprisons poor people) & begin with what I call the ‘#FreeTheStoners Initiative’ – anyone in jail for marijuana or heavy drug’ possession will be released & have their sentence commuted to attending the substance abuse treatment programs of their choice. We’ll train social workers to assist them in reintegrating into society; their records will be expunged of drug convictions, as this is a mental health, not criminal issue. . I will abolish the for-profit prison industry in Arizona; COs & other personnel will be retrained & named as ‘Arizona Rangers’. We will restore normalcy to asylum-seeking procedures; there will be HUMANIDAD A LA FRONTERA. I’d invite the ACLU of Arizona, #NoMoreDeaths & Samaritans to draft a plan for Arizona authorities to ensure compassionate treatment of detainees/new immigrants.

(NO LONGER RUNNIN’ FOR THIS POSITION, but I think me platform is pretty good! – THANKS 300 or so Pima residents who signed my nominating petition, though! Much obliged!) Pima County Board of Supervisors, Dist. 5: My platform for this position is two-pronged: 1) Plant 1.2 million trees – the world’s most comprehensive collection of mesquite trees – which will negate our carbon footprint, cool down the countryside, & provide the perfect backdrop for 2) what I call ‘The Greenway’ – a world-class, Taiwan-inspired system of cycling & hiking paths. Currently, cycling paths in Tucson are suicidal at best, extremely dangerous. We’ll implement a family-friendly nature appreciation trail, inviting the artistic participation & folkloric contribution of our Native American friends from the neighboring Pascua Yaqui & Tohono O’odham tribes.
