Friday evening Carson City Deputies responded to a report of a home intrusion and fight in the 900 block of Woodside Drive. A woman told 911 that a man had entered her apartment and was fighting on the floor with her husband. The line disconnected. When Deputies arrived, they discovered that an adult Native American male had entered the apartment, and during the fight with the male resident, the intruder was stabbed several times. The intruder was transported by paramedics to Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center.
Before all this happened neighbors told Deputies that they had witnessed and reported to 911 an aggressive intoxicated adult male outside their apartment. The drunken male was banging on cars, yelling, and at one point was lying on the ground next to a car. No damage was reported and the suspect was not found by police. Witnesses told officers the suspect was last seen walking away in the direction of the eventual home intrusion.
Witnesses stated an adult Native American male was attending a family birthday party as a guest. During the party, the man became highly intoxicated and allegedly battered several persons, including a juvenile. The man left the area on foot and was not seen again. This particular incident was not previously reported to the Sheriff’s Office and the names of the victims and severity of the fights is being investigated.
Deputies suspect the man likely left the birthday party on foot. Agitated and intoxicated, he probably walked to the 900 block of Woodside Drive, where he was seen by neighbors and the original incident was finally reported to deputies. A short time later, the suspect entered the apartment and was confronted by the female resident. Her husband then confronted the male and told him to leave. But when the intruder refused, a fight ensued and the intruder was stabbed by the resident. The intruder died soon-after at CTRMC.
The identity of the deceased is being withheld pending notification of his family. The investigation will be forwarded to the District Attorney for review.
Young teens ripped out a bike stand at McFadden Plaza.
A number of young teens ganged up on it.
Carson City Sheriff’s Deputies were called to the middle of downtown Carson City Saturday evening after reports that a group of young teens were running around the area acting very suspiciously. At first, deputies couldn’t find them but eventually they spotted some of them acting like they were trying to hide.
As it turned out, they had reason to hide. Deputies rounded them up and while questioning the boys, age 12 to around 15, learned that some of the kids vandalized a piece of McFadden Plaza – a bike stand on the plaza’s west side. Despite being bolted and set in concrete, the boys muscled-up enough strength to twist and turn the stand off its foundation. The mangled supporting hardware showed that the stand put up a credible defense but the boys prevailed.
Deputies talked with the boys, got their parents phone numbers, and one by one, moms and dads came down to pick up their sons. Deputies say they’re trying to figure out which boys actually committed the vandalism.
As for the repair/replacement process deputies say it won’t be cheap because the repair will involve busting up concrete, replacing the bike stand hardware and pouring new cement.
Mothers and fathers of Carson City….do you know where your children are and what they’re doing?
Bernie Sanders in Carson City Saturday.
Standing before a large crowd Saturday at the MAC in Carson City, democratic candidate for President Bernie Sanders opened fire on the wealthy, health care and drug companies. And that was just for starters.
Sanders, shaking his right index finger, decried the fact that half of U.S. families live paycheck to paycheck, accumulating very little in the way of savings which means their children’s future could be worse than their parents’. Sanders said for being the richest country in the world means that the top 1% of the U.S. population has most of the money. He promised, if elected to the White House, he would do everything in his power to change that.
Sanders promised the crowd that as soon as he’s in the Oval Office he will help re-invigorate unions, raise the minimum wage to $15/hour, rebuild America’s freeways, interstate highways and bridges while investing heavily in K-12 education and making colleges low cost or tuition free. He said, “If Amazon owner Jeff Bezos can be compelled to pay ANY federal income taxes, we’d have the money to make college free for all students.”
Bernie Sanders promises a big overhaul of America’s “current condition.”
Sanders then took on the health care industry promising the crowd that if elected President he would launch publicly funded Medicare for All. He said America’s medical insurance companies charge outrageous premiums for medical care and then slaps large deductibles on follow-up medical bills. He said there are literally thousands of medical insurance plans on the market which are nearly impossible to navigate and which adds at least a half-trillion dollars a year in costs to the American people. Under Medicare for All, Sanders said there would be no more premiums, no more co-pays, no more out of pocket charges and no more than $200 a year expenses for prescriptions. Sanders also said that dental work, hearing aids and eyeglasses would be added to everyone’s medical coverage.
Sanders then took on President Trump’s denial of Climate Change. Sanders said that Climate Change has started and if not stopped, the Earth we leave for our children will be nothing like we have known. The polar ice caps are melting, ocean levels are rising and huge-scale wildfires are more numerous. He said wind, solar, geothermal and other clean sources of energy will replace fossil fuels.
Sanders also took on Trump’s “scram” attitude on immigration. He said America was created by immigrants starting in 1492 and the country has grown to be the most powerful and prosperous nation on earth.
Sanders also took on the National Rifle Association saying as President, he’ll work to establish universal background checks, eliminate gun show loop-holes and end the civilian sale of assault weapons. He said although there are numerous high-powered gun lobbying groups, they are comparatively small in number while “We the People” have the votes.
Young women removed from the stage and transported to the Sheriff’s Office.
As a side-note to Sanders’ campaign speech there was an attempt to disrupt the proceedings. A number of young women stormed the stage and started throwing around what looked like food coloring. One woman grabbed the microphone and began yelling at the crowd while three others removed their shirts and went completely topless. The women were removed from the stage and arrested by Carson City Sheriff’s Deputies and charged with Indecent Exposure. Reports say they were all from California. The women reportedly were protesting the abuse of domestic farm animals.

Pete Buttigieg in CC
Monday, 11:30am, WNC
Democratic candidate for President Pete Buttigieg visits Carson City to campaign for the upcoming Nevada caucus election. Buttigieg will kick off the event on Monday, February 17, 11:30am at Western Nevada College.
Here are some major planks in his political platform for his run for the White House…
* Medicare for all “for those who want it.” Eventually the entire country could sign up for Medicare if that’s the will of the people.
* Do something about America’s prison rate – highest in the world and getting worse.
* Favor repeal of law that bans government health insurance being used for abortions.
* Make presidential elections truly democratic – two recent presidential elections went to the loser of the popular vote.
* Reduce the cost of college – expand student loan forgiveness.
* Support the Green New Deal to reverse Global Warming.
* Launch massive federally sponsored solar power program to help low income families with their power bills.
* $1.5 TRILLION dollar climate change program – more clean energy jobs.
* Raise taxes on the wealthy – end huge income disparities.
* Stop American corporations from hiding their profits overseas.
* Equal pay for women in the work place.
* Universal background checks for those buying guns
* Overturn Citizens United which has allowed the very wealthy and large corporations to spend unlimited amounts of funds on political campaigns.
* Stop sending our troops into parts of the world that only bog down our troops in endless foreign wars like Afghanistan. Use air strikes – not ground troops unless absolutely necessary
* Against “Trump’s Wall” along the US-Mexico border. End family separations.
* Load President Trump’s policies into a dump truck and transport them to the dust bin of history.
Democrat Pete Buttigieg, WNC, Monday, February 17, 11:30am.
