John Cohen Colby Loves to Inspect Porta Potties

What do you like to do in your free time?

I know inspecting local porta potties would be somewhere at the bottom of my list, probably right above picking up other people’s dogshit in the park.

John Cohen Colby has made it his personal mission to inspect all local porta potties for ADA requirements. Thank god we have John Cohen Colby here to protect us all from non-compliant porta potties. But be warned. I’ve heard horror stories of peeping toms hiding under porta potties. If you see a guy wearing a chimp hat hiding under a porta potty, run away. Or better yet, lock the door from the outside and push it over.

John Cohen Colby Needs Your Permission to Stalk and Harass You

doofus

At least that’s what the FBI told him. John has been stalking and harassing some guy he doesn’t know. Apparently, he thinks this guy and his girlfriend have been stalking him, his sister, and his dead mother (who isn’t complaining because she’s apparently dead).

Apparently self proclaimed FOIA expert John Cohen Colby wasn’t aware that people are entitled to their privacy, and the FBI kind of recognizes that right. You know, that same right he’s complaining to them about, they take that privacy stuff seriously.

Here’s what the FBI has to say about stalker assholes like John Colby and his FOIA requests he spams to anyone and everyone:

Public Interest Disclosure. If you seek disclosure of any existing records on this basis, you must demonstrate that the public interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy interests. In this regard, you must show that the public interest sought is a significant one, and that the requested information is likely to advance that interest.

Oh wait, you mean baseless personal vendettas against strangers don’t fit the bill?

I wonder how many people at the FBI got a laugh out of John’s request?

Just A Coincidence

JC12715

I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that these people that John stalks on Facebook and hates so much are the same people that he used to live next to in his Section 8 apartment in the Mission Garden Apartments. He drove them crazy until they finally had enough and together, with the help of the property managers and HUD had John evicted. It’s all spelled out in detail here.

  • Ongoing harassment of other tenants including but not limited to approaching and photographing female caregivers after dark” (So he’s a peeping tom too?)
  • Ongoing harassment and disturbance of quiet enjoyment of other residents including but not limited to harassment of disabled tenants” (Is that how he advocates for the disabled? By harassing them?)
  • Harassment of management including false accusations and gathering and publishing personal data regarding management employees and their families” (Sounds like stalking to me)
  • Stalking behavior at management staff” (I’m not the only who thinks so)

It’s all there, all the gory details, in John’s eviction notice, which John himself shared with the world online. It isn’t hard to find. Google found it for me.

 

City Attorney John Barisone Refuses to Acknowledge Pat Colby’s Fake Disability

Santa Cruz City Attorney John Barisone ignored John’s repeated demands that he comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), probably because she’s not really disabled. She’s a fake.

Pat Colby asked for a “disability accommodation” to sit along Pacific Avenue and not be required to move every 2 hours, like all the other people sitting along Pacific Avenue. What’s her disability again? Is it mental? Because we all know it’s not “physical” and she moves just fine. She can be seen walking up and down Pacific Avenue on any given day, stalking and videotaping members of SCPD trying to do their jobs. As if their jobs weren’t already difficult enough, Pat and her brother John are a constant nuisance to SCPD. And most Wednesday afternoons, she can be found on the corner of Laurel and Center with her motley crew from HUFF protesting the police. She gets around just fine. No power chair needed. No mobility scooter. Not even a cane. She walks just fine. See for yourself.

Check out the 3:15 mark of this video. Here comes Pat! Walking just fine! Complaining about harassment that they were being videotaped (as they stalk and videotape SCPD). That’s Colby like the cheese!

Here’s John’s latest whine to go with that cheese!

re: Is Santa Cruz City Attorney retaliating regarding another disabled person’s ADA accommodation request?

Dear Mr. Barisone:

Please see the attached flier about your disability based discrimination and my email to you sent on October 27, 2014. You claimed in the December 18th, 2014 Santa Cruz City Council meeting in response to Council member Micah Posner’s querying that the City of Santa Cruz fully complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). You stated the City Attorney’s Office has a “process” for responding to ADA disability accommodation requests.

Unfortunately you have refused (on the telephone to me) and still refuse from my email to provide my sister Patricia Colby a written response to her ADA disability accommodation request as I asked for on October 27, 2014.

I am submitting a California Public Records Act (CPRA) request for the documents which lay out your “process” for handling ADA disability accommodation requests. I am willing to pay a fee of up to $10 for this. I ask that if it is electronically available then it be provided to me via email in electronic form, preferably as a PDF.

It’s despicable you refuse to provide me — as per my voicemail for you left last Monday, January 5th, 2015 — a written explanation about what the Santa Cruz Police Department (SCPD) plans to do (or not do) in response to the Internet death threat against me on the Santa Cruz Topix forum by (former) Take Back Santa Cruz member Tom Cunniff of Aptos — who posts anonymously (like a coward) — and the subsequent threatening note left under my front doormat at my secret residence. My location was only given to the FBI.

▪ How was I located?

▪ By whom?

You and the SCPD were criminally negligent about what happened at the Mission Gardens Apartments which is funded and administered by the City of Santa Cruz. SCPD officers lied to federal agents about the threat Mission Gardens Apartments criminals presented to me. Once again you refuse to address threats against my life from known criminals. The City Council and City staff are complicit in this.

Question:

Will you provide my sister Patricia Colby a written response to her ADA reasonable disability accommodation request — many others need similar ADA disability accommodations. This would set a much needed precedent for the City Attorney’s Office regarding the Downtown ordinances.

To repeat, my sister requests that the so called “Move Along Law” not be enforced against her:

No person shall allow a display device to remain in the same location on the sidewalk for a
period of time exceeding one hour. After one hour the person who placed the display device on the sidewalk shall not place a display device on the sidewalk within one hundred feet of the original display device location. After one hour the person who placed the display device shall not place a display device in the original display device location, or within one hundred feet of the original display device location, for twenty four hours.

This law was selectively enforced against my disabled client Ms. Kate Wenzell by SCPD Community Service Officer Bradly Barnett to retaliate against her for me filing a U.S. Department of Justice (USDOJ) discrimination complaint against the SCPD, then naming Barnett as a respondent.

To recap:

In a telephone conversation last summer, as documented by Robert Norse on his radio
show, you refused to provide me — my sister’s acknowledged representative and advocate — a written affirmation consistent with your verbal approval of her reasonable disability accommodation request so that she could show it to SCPD officers to prove you had in fact authorized her to violate the “Move Along Law”. You refused to set written precedent for others seeking similar accommodations on Pacific Avenue in Downtown Santa Cruz, as I informed you several others wanted disability accommodations like my sister had requested.

Repeated request:

Please respond in writing to my sister’s long overdue reasonable disability accommodation request ASAP to provide a precedent against further disability based discrimination and to demonstrate the City’s commitment in complying with the ADA.

For the public good, I will share your written reply with the media, the Santa Cruz County Grand Jury, the USDOJ, Congress, Governor Jerry Brown, the California State Legislature, the ACLU, disability rights advocacy groups and disability rights attorneys.

In case you ignore this request, I will ask President Obama to require the USDOJ to reopen my Title II ADA complaint against you, Caio Arellano, the City Council, City staff and the SCPD, also adding City Clerk Administrator Bren Lehr as a respondent for refusing to accommodate my disabilities for equal access to public records due me under state law.

I ask that you fulfill this request — notarized in writing — by next Friday via certified post, fax and email (with your notarized letter attached as a PDF).

Sincerely yours,
John Cohen Colby

John Cohen Colby’s Creepy Relationship With His Sister

I think it’s fine to love your sister. To a degree.

Sister? Lover? Both?
Sister? Lover? Slover?

But there’s definitely something odd and creepy about John’s relationship with his sister Pat. John is over 50 years old and is seemingly attached at the hip to his sister. They are always together. They are both welfare cheating disability frauds, so they have a lot in common and lot’s of free time on their hands. And what do they do with it? They stalk and harass innocent people they don’t like or who don’t agree with them. That’s all they do. All day. All night.

Their relationship is so close that if you didn’t know they were brother and sister, you’d think they were husband and wife. Maybe they are that too?

I can understand why John probably has a hard time meeting women. First of all, have you seen what he looks like? He’s a hot mess. Have you heard him talk? He’s effeminate as hell. Have you seen the way he dresses? He walks around in public with a chimp hat on all the time. I’m not even sure he likes women. For someone who claims to be heterosexual, he sure spends a lot of time whining about LBGT issues. I’ve even heard from MGA residents that tell me he was caught taking gay porn from his mailbox.

So what’s the deal with John and Pat? Are they siblings? Are they lovers? Are they both?

Might be time for an FOIA request to get to the bottom of this!

John Cohen Colby Stalks and Films People Outside Local AA Meeting

In arguably a new low for John Cohen Colby and his sister/girlfriend Pat Colby, these two dingleberries thought it was a good idea to stalk and harass people outside of a local meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous. I think someone should teach these two what “Anonymous” means.

When confronted about it, John likely wet his pants.

John Cohen Colby Complains to the President and Gets Ignored Again

John Cohen Colby, likely off his meds and hearing the voices inside his head, believes someone he doesn’t know, who doesn’t know him, is making death threats against him.

Wait! Let me find my tin foil hat first.

He falsely believes that this same person he doesn’t know and who doesn’t know him somehow also violated his sister and mother’s medical privacy, that this person’s girlfriend “likely hacked into the California Highway Patrol and Salinas Valley Medical Hospital’s database and stole that information”, and he demanded that SCSO Sheriff Jim Hart and Santa Cruz City Attorney John Barisone immediately arrest him and his girlfriend and remand them to federal law enforcement.

Sheriff Hart and City Attorney Barisone ignored these demands as they likely do with all of John’s email spam. They probably have their spam filters set to automatically send John’s emails to their spam folders.

Consequently, John then emailed President Obama and the U.S. Senate to open up “synchronous executive branch and Congressional investigations”. Like they have nothing better to do.

And again, John sends this to at least 142 people who couldn’t care less.

In all it’s glory, here’s the latest!

re: President Obama and Congress must bring full force of federal government down upon domestic terrorists, hate criminals, fraudsters and thieves

Dear President Obama and U.S. Senators:

It is now clearly apparent the City and County of Santa Cruz (except Santa Cruz City Council member Micah Posner) and their respective law enforcement agencies — the Santa Cruz Police Department (SCPD) and the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) — are all conspiring to protect themselves from federal prosecution for aiding and abetting hate criminals from the domestic terrorism group Take Back Santa Cruz (TBSC) by either ignoring my security or intently wanting me to be murdered at the hands of racist, anti-homeless and disability bias motivated hate criminals who desire my death, want me silenced and wish me to suffer extreme emotional torment by attacking my emotional disabilities.

Please read the attached email sent to SCSO County Sheriff Jim Hart and Santa Cruz City Attorney John Barisone (who both refused my demand for written assurances they would arrest and remand to federal authorities hate criminals Tom M. Cunniff and his girlfriend Julia Feldman (an SCSO probation officer who somehow accessed confidential information from my mother’s fatal automobile accident in Salinas, California which only the California Highway Patrol (CHP) and Salinas Valley Medical Center had, so they and their fellow TBSC hate criminals could sully my mother’s memory in order to emotionally assault my sister and I and to destroy our reputations in the community to segregate us from community support and drive us out of Santa Cruz altogether like the SCPD has done to disabled homeless people).

Please inspect the linked to Santa Cruz Topix thread also attached as a PDF in which TBSC hate criminal Tom M. Cunniff informs Santa Cruz Topix readers he is coming to my home “real soon” (to visit harm upon me):

http://www.topix.com/forum/city/santa-cruz-ca/TREF6SMTBVPQFBDOT

I called Santa Cruz Regional 9-1-1 (SCR 911) dispatch for the SCSO and spoke twice to dispatch supervisor Anita —who claimed her ID# is 753 — while standing outside my home in the dark freezing cold because if I called from my bedroom my landlords would immediately evict me, then being made homeless TBSC would surely kill me. Anita wouldn’t have an SCSO officer call me back in a timely manner and refused for them to call my sister — who is also a victim of the same criminals — falsely claiming that my sister is not a victim while I explained to her why she was. Anita — like other SCR 911 personnel — denied us service under color of law. SCR 911 manager Dennis Kidd worked election night at our polling station, has been a member of TBSC affiliated Facebook groups, and might have passed my secret residential address (known only to the FBI) to SCPD and TBSC hate criminals.

Requests:

Open federal investigations by the FBI, the USDOJ, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of Transportation Office of Inspector General (DOT OIG), the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (DHHS OIG), the Department of Defense Office of Inspector General (DoD OIG) and the National Intelligence Community Office of Inspector General (NIC OIG) into the City/County of Santa Cruz, the SCPD, the SCSO and SCR 911 aiding and abetting domestic terrorism while trying to silence, even kill, citizen journalists — like my sister and I — from exposing it.

Open synchronous Congressional investigations into the same parties as well as The John Stewart Company (JSCO), TerraCorp Financial, HUD, HUD’s Office of Inspector General (HUD’s OIG), the California Housing Finance Agency (CalHFA), USDOJ Fair Housing Investigator Jonathan Teitel, his supervisors, USDOJ Disability Rights Section Director Jay Bentley, retiring U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, former U.S. Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez and all the owners of the Mission Gardens Apartments at 90 Grandview Street in Santa Cruz — including Section 8 fraudsters and slumlords Sam Ridino and Jack Baskin — and the Mission Gardens hate criminals who terrorized and endangered us, other residents and the surrounding SAGE SC neighborhood.

Immediately take out with all the necessary force reserved to the state the domestic terrorism group TBSC and all those who collaborated with it in both the government and the military, like Colonel Ed Lesnowicz and his unknown military-intelligence conspirators.

Time is essential. By the time you receive this email I, my sister and others on TBSC’s “hit-list” may be dead.

Please — in case of our premature death — hold all these hate criminals, their supporters and their enablers accountable using all the fury with which the state can punish them. This is an important test of who the federal government serves: those manipulating the public with hate filled agendas or the interests of compassionate citizens trying to make our country a exemplar towards which other nations can aspire. Does the federal government serve those who seek power through hate and cruelty or does it come down on the side of love, tolerance and integrity.

I ask you: what kind of country do you want?

Sincerely yours,
John Cohen Colby

Don Lane Hates John Cohen Colby

Trust me. He’s not alone.

Mentally disabled transient bum John Cohen Colby filed a color of law complaint recently against Santa Cruz Mayor Don Lane for “segregating him from the community by not forcing the Santa Cruz Police Department (SCPD) to protect him against Take Back Santa Cruz (TBSC) death threats and now silencing him from exercising his Free Speech rights and his right to petition the government for a redress of grievances”. No, I’m not making this up. He’s serious. As serious as someone with mental illness can be I guess.

John asked that his sister be given two minutes to read letters during open communications of a recent City Council meeting about “the SCPD denying him protection, about City Attorney John Barisone denying him written explanations and about the City Council (except for Micah Posner) and City staff aiding and abetting TBSC hate crimes”. Why is Micah Posner exempt? Is he John’s PAL (Personal Ass Licker)?

Mayor Don Lane denied this ridiculous request. Of course he did.

John immediately emailed a color of law complaint to the San Francisco FBI Duty Agent against Mayor Lane for “abusing his position of authority to violate John’s civil rights, to segregate him based upon his disabilities, and to silence him from being an engaged, effective citizen to speak out in a public forum on Community Television”. That’s right. John got upset because Don Lane wouldn’t let his sister speak for him and have her time as well. He was too afraid to actually attend the council meeting and speak for himself. So instead of just showing up and airing his beef himself, what does John do? He files a complaint with the FBI.

And he doesn’t just file a complaint with the FBI. He sent emails (via CC) to AT LEAST 141 PEOPLE THAT COULDN’T CARE LESS.

Here it is, in all it’s glory. Have a good laugh. I did!

re: Filing color of law complaint against Santa Cruz Mayor Don Lane

Dear Duty Agent:

Last night or the night before, I left voice messages for Santa Cruz City Council-member Micah Posner (who I call as a witness) and Santa Cruz City Clerk Administrator Bren Lehr (whom I also call as a witness).

I asked — because denial of protection by the Santa Cruz Police Department (SCPD) in response to (death) threats made against me by Take Back Santa Cruz (TBSC) member Tom Cunniff and other individuals have falsely imprisoned me, segregating me from the community based upon my disabilities, shutting down my advocacy for disabled (homeless) people and preventing me from exercising my Free Speech rights — so that my sister Patricia Colby be allocated a mere two minutes on my behalf, so she could read a letter from me to the City Council, the City Attorney, the City Manager, the council audience and the public via Santa Cruz Community Television. I explained that this was necessary to fully exercise my Free Speech rights, my right to petition the government for a redress of grievances, and also to exercise my disability rights to not be segregated from City Council meetings and from the wider community.

It was a very small request.

Santa Cruz Mayor Don Lane is clearly retaliating against me for exercising my civil rights and for petitioning President Obama and the U.S. Senate to come down on him, the City Council (excepting Micah Posner), the City Attorney, the City staff and the SCPD for reasons presented in previous emails (which you were carbon copied).

Essentially, Mayor Don Lane is denying me the right to be an (engaged) citizen, to protect my civil rights and the civil rights of others. He has aided and abetted — as described in previous emails — me being falsely imprisoned in my residence threatened by TBSC stalkers and potentially SCPD officers colluding with them.

Demand: immediately investigate Santa Cruz Mayor Don Lane for abusing his position of authority to deny me my constitutional and civil rights so that an impartial U.S. attorney may prosecute him (to the fullest extent possible under federal law).

Mayor Don Lane has imprisoned and silenced me! This is completely unacceptable!. He has dictatorially abused the powers of the state to punish me. He must be held accountable so no other government official considers committing the heinous acts he has committed against my sister, I and my disabled clients.

Thank you for your immediate action to protect my rights, the rights of those associated with me, and to protect our health and safety.

Sincerely yours,
John E. Colby, Ph.D.
