Jack Yantis' 63-year-old widow Donna gave this account of the incident from her hospital bed. (She had a heart attack upon seeing the police murder her husband.)
"On Nov. 1 at approximately 7 p.m. Adams County Sheriff's Department called and told us there was a bull that got hit and they wanted us on the scene and he was mad. So we went down to check it out. I took Jack his gun so he could put the bull out of its misery. When he walked up there and was gonna put him down the officer came up and jerked him back almost off his feet. I don't know what they told him, but they just opened fire and shot him. And then they threatened me and my nephew, Rowdy Paradis, threw us on the middle of Highway 95, searched us and handcuffed us and wouldn't let us go take care of Jack."

Hello Sheriff Zollman.
I know you were asked at the town meeting last Tuesday if your deputies were trained by the Dept. of Homeland Security, to which you replied "NO."
Can I ask why you replied no, when all there are countless records in the official Adams County meeting minutes, not to mention reports in your town's local newspaper archives, outlining your DHS Grants, DHS funding, DHS classes for your deputies, which are required for you to get the grant money, forms to be filled out confirming that your deputies completed the DHS courses, DHS classes both online and in person, active shooter training classes paid for by DHS for your deputies, etc., etc.
Why did you answer NO to that question?
If federal grant $$$ and federalized police training is so great, why deny it is occurring in your department?
Any clarification from you would be appreciated, thanks.
A lot of people would love to know the answer to this question.
A second question is, has Adams County or any other jurisdiction prosecuted any persons for the 'death threats' which you told the media were made against you?
If not, why not? These type crimes need to be prosecuted swiftly. In the age of the internet, it's very easy to track down perpetrators who commit such crimes either by internet or telephone.
Below are only a few examples & links about DHS and your department.
I'll get to Zollman's involvement with DHS in a minute. But first a note about the alleged 'death threats' against him and his family, which he repeated to numerous news outlets. I asked the same questions when Glenn Beck told Ron Paul on live TV that Ron Paul supporters had threatened to kill him. Beck went on and on about it. Beck began:
"Okay. Dr Paul; I'm gonna take a break and in the break I'm gonna feed something down to your location that I'm not gonna show on the air. My life has been threatened . Uh, I had to wear a vest and have securities . I..I..I've got a SWAT team to watch my family because of people who say they support you."
"Okay. here's.. here's what, the people who are.. at least the ones that i have met and received tons of mail- and I can read them to you if you want sir.. where they're calling for my death.. They say that i am part of a 9/11 conspiracy."
"Little mention has been made of these alleged 'death threats' against Beck since then. If there has been any arrest, indictment, charges filed, trial, or conviction of the threat makers, it has not been reported by a single news outlet. This leaves the discerning observer no other choice than to conclude that the entire thing may have been fabricated. If the threats really occurred, and were posted via youtube video or email, the person could have easily been tracked down and arrested. Case in point:
Why is it that all these asshat politicians and government people always claim that death threats are made against them, but no one is ever arrested?? Any idiot should knows that if any government person is threatened, especially a national politician, media whore or if ANY law enforcement officer is threatened, all the forces and resources of government would drop the hammer immediately on the perpetrator. That is why I don't believe that any one of these people have been threatened.
Now on to Zollman and DHS.
Page 10 of the Adams County Record dated Wednesday, June 19, 2013 states, in part:
"Sheriff Ryan Zollman gave a short report on the operations in his department. He has twenty-five guest inmates this week in the jail. He has accepted the two new patrol vehicles - watch for the dark blue Ford Pickups that will be added to our patrol fleet. The new vehicles both come with two-year warranties, or for the first 36,000 miles. Two older vehicles were traded in to the dealer at the time these pickups were purchased. Four deputies attended an Active Shooters Training session last week. Their fees and tuition were picked up by the Department of Homeland Security." LINK: http://ada.stparchive.com/Archive/ADA/ADA06192013p10.php
Here is another example of Ryan Zollman's relationship with DHS, with Zollman and DHS in cahoots regarding electronic traffic tickets:
Traffic tickets go digital -The Adams County Commissioners accepted Sheriff Ryan Zollman's proposal to convert ticket writing in the county to an E Ticket system. The system has been developed by FATPAW Systems, a Utah company, and is used successfully by Madison County in Southeastern Idaho, and also by Garden City in Ada County. The local system will require conversion to eight minicomputers, which will allow for writing tickets in a digital form. The ticket information will be uploaded whenever the patrolman reaches a wifi location in the county. The Sheriff's department will use Homeland Security funding for much of the system cost because it will also allow for on-line mapping for traffic stops throughout the county. There will be a one-time cost of $6,000 for the system, which will be offset by savings in time and in eliminating paper ticket forms. Ticketed parties will be able to review their charges on-line with the new system that will be installed later this year.
"Sheriff Ryan Zollman has permission to relocate the 911 equipment from Brundage to the Valley County site located at No. Business Lookout. The move saves Adams County $2,000 annually, and Homeland Security funds will pay for the moving expenses. The jail housed twenty-seven guest inmates this past week. This is the second month that fees paid for guest inmates will exceed $30,000. Sheriff Zollman was able to give raises to the jailers and patrolmen in the 2014 budget. ollman hopes that the higher wages, plus the fact that he is emphasizing local hires, will slow down turnover in the department. [View the issue here.]
When Zollman was running for Sheriff, he revealed his true colors at a candidate forum, expressing his enthusiasm for the 'war on drugs.' Of course being a strong proponent of the drug war means Zollman and his deputies have the pretext to seize property, apply for endless DHS grants, fill the jails with non violent offenders, thereby giving his deputies and jailers raises! Zollman told the crowd "he has his own ideas on how to run things." His own ideas indeed! Zollman also criticized Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio for "too aggressively" arresting illegal aliens.
Ryan Zollman said: "The sheriff has the authority to enforce all state laws. The federal agents do not. The sheriff's office can enforce some federal laws, but not all. An example is immigration laws--287G, which has been removed thanks to Sheriff Arpaio too aggressively approaching that. That was one of the federal deals given to all sheriffs, and Sheriff Arpaio enforced it too aggressively and it was taken away. Another one is the 49 code for DOT (Dept. of Transportation). We don't have anybody in our agency right now that enforces federal DOT. The State Police do. Other counties do. Ada County has federal DOT officers. So there are some federal laws that State government can enforce, but the majority of them they cannot."
The last question of the evening referred to the use of drug-sniffing dogs and the questioner's evident feeling that the current method and frequency with which the sheriff's department uses the dogs is overly invasive. Ryan Zollman made a strong series of statements about enforcing drug laws. He ended with, "Will we continue to use the dogs in such a manner? Absolutely; that's what we've got them for." This brought the only round of applause of the night from the audience. The other sheriff candidates supported Zollman's view. [LINK.]
Here are some older DHS programs that Zollman took part in as a deputy. The sheriffs have been trained by DHS since Zollman was a deputy, and have continued with Zollman as Sheriff.

A MESSAGE FROM LibertyFight.com: We are praying for the family of Jack Yantis and for his soul, may he rest in peace. This is a beautiful song called 'Blessed Are They.' Please also pray for the people who committed this atrocious killing, and for the people responsible for enacting justice in this matter.

LATEST ON THE JACK YANTIS CASE FROM LibertyFight.com:
The local Adams County, Idaho Sheriff Ryan Zollman, whose officers slaughtered Yantis, in the past has tried to portray himself as a 'patriot' pro 2nd Amendment type. But you can be the judge on this one.
I have almost 9 million views on my youtube channel. But this video, with only 6,400 views, is still my absolute favorite. Be sure to watch this powerful video of a man who was shot by cops, charged with attempted murder of a police officer, spent 2 years in prison and was aquitted of all charges by a jury of 12, without a lawyer, representing himself! His webpage is here: "Shot In Reverse, Saved By God": The Vincent Arias Story

The Ron Paul Bumper Sticker Is Still On My Car (Tearjerker tribute vid ;-)
Just for fun. This is a vid I made in 2008 after his campaign ended."remember the good times. A tribute to Dr. Paul and all his supporters who fight for freedom. Keep up the good work everyone!"
Several people at the time told me that this made them cry. ;-)
(BEAUTIFUL LOSER/ I WILL REMEMBER YOU')
[The background story of the video, and my introduction to Ron Paul (from my dad when I was a kid) , along with my dad and my trip to the first Ron Paul meet-up in Pasadena, California - a meeting which was featured in the New York Times (they falsely mis-characterized the entire meeting by the way, and claimed that there were a bunch of jew haters there when none of that is true! No one even mentoned Jews at that meeting.) is here.
My Visit To The Memorial to the "Up To Six Million" Murdered Jews of Europe - Berlin, Germany 8/23/15
This "highly visible" holocaust memorial is appropriately sandwiched between the infamous Reichstag Building, The U.S. Embassy, and the Homosexual Memorial Museum. The placard in the video states, in part, "In August 1988, the journalist Lea Rosh and the historian Eberhard Jackel made a public proposal for establishing a "highly visible memorial for the murdered Jews of Europe" in Berlin. On 25 June 1999, after long and drawn out debates, the German Bundestag finally passed a resolution to build a "Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe" based on the design by the New York architect, Peter Eisenman. On 10 May 2005 the Holocaust Memorial - comprising 2,711 concrete stelar and a subterraneon Information Centre - was officially opened to the public. The exhibition provides information about the Holocaust and the "authentic sites of remembrance". Moreover, it honours the up to six million Jewish victims from throughout Europe."
Neocon Glenn Beck calls for celebrating Ramadan by shooting all Guantanamo prisoners in the head Beck, an ardent supporter of Israel, in the past was touted as a possible running mate to Sarah Palin. He has likened Ron Paul supporters to terrorists and said that he "hates 9/11 victims families for asking questions". Beck stated, in part, "We can't let them starve themselves to death? Damn right we can. We can also shoot them in the head, which is the other option and the one I'm for. SHOOT THEM. But, the other is let them starve to death and I'm totally fine with that."
Palin and Beck 2012? A match straight out of hades 11/19/09 Sarah Palin, former governor of Alaska who is making the media rounds promoting her book Going Rogue, has said that she would consider TV host Glen Beck as a running mate if she ran for president in two years.
Palin continues standard establishment line on Israeli policy 11/18/09 Palin: "I disagree with the Obama administration on that. I believe that the Jewish settlements should be allowed to be expanded upon, because that population of Israel is, is going to grow. More and more Jewish people will be flocking to Israel in the days and weeks and months ahead. And I don't think that the Obama administration has any right to tell Israel that the Jewish settlements cannot expand."
Walters: "Even if its Palestinian areas?"
Palin: "I believe that the Jewish settlements should be allowed to expand."
Neocon pundits amp up demonization efforts in response to possible Ron Paul 2012 run 12/21/09 [Featured on Infowars.com and LewRockwell.com.] Beck: You raise money however you want, as long as you arent blowing other people up... Ron Paul supporters are tapping in to something that's very real... But if fringe elements turn that disenfranchisement into violence, we endanger the freedoms we're supposedly all fighting for... Okay, where am I wrong? The Ron Paul revolution. I think it's meant to be a catchy slogan, but I fear some of his fringe supporters are taking the word 'Revolution' too literally."
Flashback: "Why would Israel attack a ship that belonged to its only ally?" asks Israeli Ambassador 9/28/10
Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren, who was heckled by Muslim students in 2010 while giving a speech at UC Irvine in what became the infamous 'Irvine 11' case, is a stalwart defender of the official U.S.S. Liberty government story. The students, who called Oren a war criminal, were later criminally prosecuted by the Orange County, CA D.A. after an inflential rabbi held a private meeting with the district attorney's staff.
New law allows Israeli Air Force easy opportunity for a false flag in United States 7/20/12
Will the Israeli Air Force be used to carry out another false-flag attack in America? On Tuesday night, July 17th, the U.S. Congress passed the final version of the United States-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act of 2012 a bill which not only will give Israel hundreds of millions of dollars worth of 'surplus' military equipment, but will allow the Israeli Air Force to conduct "training and exercise opportunities in the United States". The bill was "Presented to President" Obama on July 19th but as of this writing has not yet been signed into law. Israel, along with the United States, has a long documented history of "false flag operations"- deceptive attacks which are generally conducted in order to deceive the public in order to get them to support new wars.
Eerie Predecessor of Chris Dorner: the James Beck Redux February 24, 2013
The Christopher Dorner saga has an eerie predecessor with many striking similarities, involving a 35-year old former police officer named James Beck. Police burned him to the ground inside a home during a standoff.
