Maricopa Arizona Sheriff's Bomb House: Mistaken Identity, Two Victims Severely Injured and One In Jail

I want to report an incident on January 13th 2011 of excessive force and false arrest of Brian Schelske by Maricopa County Sheriffs Office in Arizona.
Warrant # 8W 2011-000327.

The house was bombed with concussion bombs in military fashion at 3:30 am as if bombing the enemy. A tank rolled over the cyclone fence.

The two victims of police harassment were marched out with hands over their heads half naked. The 59 yo woman was made to stand naked with just panties breasts exposed, hands tied behind her back in the cold for 30 minutes. There had to be 15-20 cars lined up along the road for the display of public humiliation.

The woman was not arrested but has a perforated eardrum and is suffering from depression and PSTD after this horrific incident.

The man, a former mental health patient, does not even remotely fit the description on the original police report. The woman was off work on disability after a fall but worked as a Renal Dietitian and faculty at the local community college. She was also a Nutritionist on the Navajo Indian Reservation for the WIC Program.

POWER TO OUR YOUTH, from Idriss Stelley Foundation, November 2010

Happy to report that I receive phone calls today from 2 different high schools teachers to set up 15 hr internships for their students at Idriss Stelley Foundation, prompted by the Mehserle Verdict and the police assassination of Derrick Jones.

Our internship includes Youth Know your Rights interactive training so that the kids can later conduct their own workshops in their schools.

Racial Profiling and Violence

On March 03, 2008 I was driving from San Francisco to San Jose after having dinner at Fuzio’s restaurant in the Castro district around 10:45 pm where I had crispy calamari linguini and water. Driving a constant speed of 60 mph on Highway 101 I notice three Highway Patrol cars one on my left side and two on my right side driving at very high speed. When I looked in the rear mirror I notice a CHP car with the lights on. I thought the officer wanted me to move lanes since I was next to the HOV lane so, I did.
