Quartzsite Chief Gilbert Fouls Out At His Firing

Jeff Gilbert was terminated (fired) without stated cause by the Quartzsite Town Council today. His last act was to stand at the podium during the call to the public and break a very significant rule. He decided to turn around and face the public and “thank” the town (his foul-out). It is well known that a speaker must face and address only the Council from this podium, not turn to the public.

Ironically, Jeff Gilbert personally participated in the arrest of his nemesis Jennifer Jones about two years ago at the same podium and for the same act – facing the public from the podium. Her elbow was broken by Officer Rick Paterson during that widely criticized arrest. Another irony – the same mayor presided today, as in 2011, but did not object to Gilbert’s obvious infraction.

“I am still the chief” was a familiar statement from this former police chief. This was his second firing by the town in about one year. His firing in 2012 was reversed. The Town of Quartzsite is now burdened with many claims and lawsuits as a result of actions by Gilbert and his cops. The Town is thus clinging to sub-prime liability insurance it sought after its participation in the economical Arizona Municipal Risk Pool was cancelled.
