Citizens And Veterans Of North Las Vegas, It Is Time To Save North Las Vegas From Tyranny And Oppression
North Las Vegas, Nevada (November 27, 2013) elected politicians in NLV Stand by and watch while Police Chief Joseph Chronister continues to allow high ranking police officials to discriminate against Military Veterans and minorities.
NLV Deputy Police Chief Tony Scott is accused of retaliation against a 23 year veteran police officer, who also happens to be a Military Veteran and NLV Police Lieutenant for alerting the tax-paying public about a traffic ticket quota system that was put into place at the North Las Vegas Police Department during the months of December 2012 and January 2013.
Not only is there an accusation of retaliation, which is not permitted by law, there is also an EEOC (U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) complaint that has been filed and accepted by the Commission against NLVPD Deputy Chief Tony Scott for Discrimination under Title VII. This complaint (File Number 846-2013-41426) alleges that discrimination occurred against NLVPD Lieutenant Wilson Crespo, Crespo stated: “I believe I was discriminated against due to my race, African American and my National Origin, Puerto Rican and also retaliated against for complaining of discriminatory practices, in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended.”
Although discrimination and retaliation was reported to Human Resources by this Lieutenant nothing was ever done to address or curb the illegal actions of Deputy Chief Tony Scott.
Why the elected officials in North Las Vegas continue to bury their heads in the sand and why they continue to allow high ranking public officials like Chief Joseph Chronister and Deputy Chief Tony Scott to continue to remain employed, we will never know.
Everyone should be held accountable for their actions or in this case inaction regarding civil rights violations and illegal conduct toward Military Veterans. The thought that this has gone unchallenged, unchecked and allowed to go on is not only unethical it is illegal!
If you want to learn more about this Deputy Chief and his exploits while he was a Police Captain just a few years ago then check out this article in the Las Vegas Sun from Wednesday, May 19, 2010, “Court: Officer Missed Promotion Because Of Superior’s Affair with Ex-Wife.”
Not only did the Nevada Supreme Court agree that this North Las Vegas Police Officer was mistreated by his superior Captain Tony Scott, the NLV Police promoted Tony Scott to Deputy Chief after he delayed another officers promotion and was having an affair with his ex-wife.
If this is not enough to convince you that the elected are turning a blind eye while a Deputy Chief’s entire career reads like a bad episode of movie about police corruption, then listen to this.
As the story goes, allegedly, when Deputy Chief Tony Scott was a Police Sergeant, he was disciplined by the Department giving him two weeks off with no pay because he and another Sergeant, who is now retired were caught placing bets on which trainees would and would not make it through the training program. Allegedly, the police trainees on the list were minorities and at least one was a Military Veteran.
We have brought many of these concerns to the attention of the Mayor and the City Council of North Las Vegas almost a month ago and thus far the actions of the Police Command and their deplorable behavior has quietly been brushed aside as if it were going to disappear. Let’s see what happens now that the public is becoming aware of these injustices?!
Veterans In Politics International launched a commercial last night against the North Las Vegas Police Chief (see attached).

Listen to our Valentines Day Ball & Gala Commercial:
BULLYING may cost NORTH LAS VEGAS taxpayers over $300,000
NORTH LAS VEGAS, NEVADA (November 20, 2013) — Several reports and lawsuits alleging discrimination against minorities including women, African Americans and Hispanics by the North Las Vegas Police Department under Chief Chronister’s command are surfacing throughout Police ranks, in the media and being published in public records. One officer is unafraid and has publicly spoken about his pending lawsuit against NLVPD and his recent victory announced by Internal Affairs. Lieutenant Wilson Crespo, a U.S. Air Force veteran argues that he was discriminated against by his employer, the City of North Las Vegas Police Department for his race and retaliation on several occasions over a two-year period. Crespo has filed a grievance plus a charge of discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The Law Office of Richard Segerblom, Ltd. is representing Crespo in these matters. Fellow officer Sergeant Leonard Cardinale has come forward as a witness to the alleged discriminatory incidents.
Crespo filed a complaint with Human Resources for Harassment and coincidentally former Police Chief T. Scott filed an internal formal complaint against Crespo who was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome. Two weeks ago, on November 5, 2013, Internal Affairs sided with Crespo in its Memorandum stating, “The internal investigation in this matter has been concluded. It has been determined that the violation of NLVPD Policy 3.05.01 – Employee Conduct was NOT SUSTAINED.”
Crespo states that he was never given the opportunity to apply for nor accept various assignments with incentive pay from 2011 until present and believes that he is more qualified based on achieving higher test scores and experience.
1. Lt. assigned to Internal Affairs – awarded to Timothy Meamber
2. SWAT Commander – awarded to Anthony DiMauro
3. Narcotics assignment – awarded to Sam Ojeda
4. Director of Legislative Affairs – awarded to Timothy Bedwell
5. Detective Bureau – awarded to Alex Perez
6. SWAT – awarded to Dennis Nowakowski, James Brown
7. FBI national academy (command school) – awarded to Justin Roberts and Pamela Ojeda
In the event that Crespo is awarded an assignment that he was overlooked for he may be receive approximately as much as $300,000 or more in back-pay. Crespo has made public statements about the harassment suffered at the hands of NLVPD on 8 News Now with Nathan Baca. Veterans In Politics International will continue to report on this developing story.

Please contact our Auxiliary Director Karen Steelmon at 702-238-5134 to schedule a time.
Attention all 2014 Candidates, Elected Officials, Campaign Mangers, Political Consultants, & Voters:
The Veterans In Politics International (VIPI) will conduct endorsement interviews in the State of Nevada for every elected seat that are opposed.
We have been interviewing candidates and elected officials on our radio program every Tuesday at 8PM “Eye On Nevada Politics” and our internet talk show every Saturday at 2PM “Veterans In Politics”.
We had members sit in and listen to the 2013 Legislative session, we have members talking with our congressional leaders in their Washington DC Office, we have member sitting in county commission chambers, and we have members sitting in court rooms. In short we have members critiquing elected officials where they work.
We also go to every elected or candidate functions as long as we are invited. In addition we share a candidates event on social media an amongst our members. We also encourage candidates to place a commercial on our radio program. We invited all candidates to march with us in the Veterans Day Parade, we invite all candidates to participate at our booth at the Gun Show and other events, and we are inviting all candidates to be in attendance at our Valentine’s Day Ball Event.
Once we endorse a candidate we become loyal to that candidate, until then we will continue to embrace all candidate.
We are the only group in the State of Nevada that interviews all the candidates at one time for each race no matter what their party affiliations, video tape the interview, open the interviews to the public, and place the videotaped interviews on several social media websites.
We are the only Veterans group in this State of Nevada that is registered with the Secretary of State and endorses candidates.
We are none partisan however sometimes it might seem that we are, but we can assure you we are not. We have members in every political organization, many veterans groups, many professions, and advocacy groups.
Between now and when we start to endorse candidates you will see us at different candidates events, you will see our members in photos with different candidates, and you will see us sharing candidates information. This is how we educate ourselves on different candidates.
We have never rubber stamp a candidate because of party affiliation, gender, religion, affiliation, title, popularity, influence, membership, nor finances. The only time we will give extra points in our endorsements are for military veterans and candidates that have actually helped military veterans; However just because you are a military veteran that is not a rubber stamp for our endorsement.
We believe that we are the only group that will treat you fairly in our endorsement process. Many groups will not even invite a candidate if they believe that candidate has no chance in winning their election and many groups will not endorse in the primary they will wait for the General Election to start endorsing.
We embarrass all candidates and we love to put candidates into the General Election and not wait for others to make that choice for us.
We are going to make our endorsement interviews different in 2014. Our endorsements interviews will be at a new location, we will have different moderators for each interview day, we will have a diverse interview panels with guest interviewers, and a hurray of sponsors.
We will start interviewing our judicial candidates in February and the other candidates in April and May. Southern Nevada VIP will conduct interviews for (3) Congressional seats, (6) Constitutional Seats of Nevada’s Executive Branch, (7) State Senate seats, (31) State Assembly seats, (2) Nevada Supreme Court seats (3) County Commissioner seats, (6) Clark County Executive Branch seats, (10) Constable seats, (52) Clark County District Court seats, (3) State University Regent seats, (3) Clark County School Board Trustee seats, (5) Justice of The Peace seats and (1) Sheriff seat.
We have been interviewing all candidates in a public forum since 2005. Again no other group is willing to interviewing every single candidate in every race. We take the utmost pride in our endorsement interview process and the utmost pride in naming our endorsed candidates.
The VIPI prides it selves on being a leader in our community. Make friends out of enemies and expose corruption.
We stand up for what we believe is right and we stand up for elected and candidates that stands up for us.
