DumpOzzie.com is about the story of Scott Maclay and his journey in standing for accountability, openness and transparency with a Corrupt and Murderous Sheriff with Blood on his hands. Decide for yourself…
I attended Opportunity Elementary, North Pines Junior High, University High School, and then graduated from Central Valley High School.
I attended SCC, and graduated from EWU with a degree in Economics and Labor Relations. I worked full-time for U.R.M. Stores in the Warehouse as a member of the Teamster’s Union, where I earned a retirement pension, while raising a son and a daughter who also attended Valley schools, and remain here in the Spokane Valley while now raising my grandchildren – and in the very community and in the very schools that we all attended.
I am the direct descendant of Senator Samuel Maclay, Pennsylvania, who was their first Senator and attended Congress in New York City. Historically, he was the most Anti-Federalist of all our Forefathers, and the Godfather of our Jeffersonian, or Republican-Democratic system. And, I completely share in all his heritage; Pro-God, Pro-gun, Pro-life, and less government.
I interned under Sean Harrigan of the UFCW, and later became the leading, resale, real-estate broker in the Spokane Valley, for nearly two decades, and served as a Board Member on the Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce while working towards Incorporation of the Valley, and in establishing the City of Spokane Valley where I still legally reside today. And, contrary to a recent article in the Spokesman-Review, my Washington, Real-Estate Broker’s License is currently in Inactive Status with the DOL.
I also worked for a short period as the Director of Sales for the Mid-South Region for Rocket Engineering in the sales of JetProps and in my continuing love of flying.
After being diagnosed with Asbestos from my early childhood years in Libby, Montana, and between my fifth and seventh grades as my step-father and mother worked for U.R.M. Stores there… I was confronted with the reality of adjusting to my developing, complicated health and lung issues, costly hospital stays with pneumonia, bankruptcy, and then in returning to SCC to complete two years of advanced classes in A&P, Biology, Chemistry, Math, and was accepted to medical school graduating with a Degree in Respiratory Care while completing successful clinicals in all the local area hospitals.
Today, I am a Registered Respiratory Therapist, working ER, PACU, Trauma, and as an Acute Care Life Support Specialist, a Certified Pediatric Acute Life Support Specialist, a Neonatal Resuscitation Program Specialist, and a Basic Life Support Instructor in outlying Critical Access Hospitals and local hospitals as well. I am currently licensed in Idaho and Washington.
I began confronting, then, Sergeant Knezovich, and his interventions into the City of Spokane Valley’s development as a member of the Law Enforcement Committee. I had served the SCSO as a volunteer member of the Dive Team, and while working undercover in the Federal Task Force that dismantled The Aryan Nations and The Order. My experience resulted in my selection and an employment opportunity with the Central Intelligence Agency, and my placement in the USAF Honorary Commander Program.
I was well equipped to challenge then Sergeant Knezovich who represented the Spokane County Sheriff Deputy’s Association, and who was busy in, basically, “bribing” candidates for our new Valley City Council in return for control of our Law Enforcement Contract – a practice that continues today – and that has resulting in the payments of thousands, and tens of thousands of dollars from the Deputy’s Association into the unwarranted interference in the affairs of the City of Spokane Valley, and while openly violating the Polices and Procedures of the SCSO. In fact, of the initial candidates that were elected, I was the only candidate who didn’t accept any contributions – but ask Diana Wilhite and Mike DeVleming how much they accepted next time you see them.
And here’s the math, to date, and over 18 years, this practice has cost us, the taxpayers of the City of Spokane Valley, 2 million dollars a year – which has now accumulated to some 36 million dollars, over the past 18 years, that Knezovich, who is not even a resident of the Spokane Valley, has continued in doing so… a total disrespect for the determination of the Voters in the Valley in Incorporation…
In effect, and since the Incorporation of the City of Spokane Valley, Knezovich has participated in undermining our cost-savings proposals to the taxpayers while “bribing” Liberal Democrats and Progessives to run for offices in the Valley as Republican’s, and with no Republican history or values, against our Christian Conservatives while taking a stand against our Valley Legislators, while endorsing and supporting candidates who always vote for his costly law-enforcement contract and with deadly outcomes – and while violating the Sheriff’s Departments Policies and Procedures.
I orchestrated a protest at the Spokane Valley City Police Station, and with over 800 local citizens in attendance, and Deputy Moffett’s comments in that the MRAP was necessary for Constitutionalists amassing guns and ammunition – and why you never even disciplined the Deputy who said it. Here are some clips worthy of your consideration:
So, what has Sheriff Knezovich given us in return for our support?
A phony Citizen’s Advisory Board (CAB) and Investigations that even includes a missing Report in the Pastor Creach assassination… shot on his knees with his hands in the air… while Knezovich scoffed at the taxpayers who endured a costly lawsuit and settlement while he continues in defending unmarked patrol vehicles – maybe, because, he drives one (?).
“Your lucky I didn’t f#cking shoot you,” Deputy Robert Brooke told the homeowner, who’s home his partner Deputy Evan Logan had just entered from the back through an unlocked door.
The only problem is, they’re snooping around the wrong house while investigating a potential burglary. They had been given the correct address, but they couldn’t find the house and assumed the caller was mistaken. Deputy Evan Logan walks around back and shines his light through the windows. He checks the handle on the double French doors that lead into the basement, and finding it unlocked he enters and begins to search the home!
Conner opens the door, and he’s ordered out of his house and onto his knees. The deputies put him in handcuffs at gunpoint, according to court documents. Conner filed a federal civil lawsuit against Deputy Robert Brooke and Deputy Evan Logan and Spokane County, including; claims of assault and battery, false arrest and imprisonment and negligence in a lawsuit that a Federal Judge ruled in June of 2015 – may be pursued – and with a likely outcome at taxpayer expense.
And, what leadership and integrity has Knezovich provided concerning these two deputies… not even an apology to their victim – Real Mormons do not commit assault and battery, false arrest and imprisonment and negligence without seeking restitution… just sayin Sheriff. Is anyone noticing a pattern here?
Brian Standow filmed the shooting of Zed Zillmer at the Spokane Valley Mall – claims to have given a copy to Treasurer Rob Chase, but he isn’t talking either. I’ve personally seen his video that shows Zillmer on his knees with his hands in the air. It appeared that possibly one Deputy may have accidentally fired one round… followed by a multitude of Deputies shooting Zillmer at least a dozen times… Standow then lost his guns and his gun rights at the hands of Knezovich under circumstances that would offend any law bidding citizen – along with the video of the Zillmer shooting. A coincidence?
Whether or not Standow will use his new position as a Republican State Committeeman in pressing Knezovich for accountability, openness and transparency, or in just becoming a part of the on-going problems in the GOP is now well understood… Standow’s desire to conceal carry a concealed weapon without a permit is apparently being permitted by Knezovich in exchange for Standow’s support of him in the Republican Party… more Unholy Alliances… right?
Well, it is an election year, and a good time to practice cultural diversity… unless, it’s with Knezovich’s good friend Phil Tyler, and their cover-up of abuse of the female employees in the Spokane County Jail.
Mark Fuhrman and Sheriff Knezovich have been friends for years… Fuhrman supported Knezovich for Sheriff… and just like with Tyler, Knezovich doesn’t say much about their relationship anymore…
Intentional cover-ups and conspiracies are taking the life and liberty of too many Spokane County Citizens to ignore. And, are costing us, the taxpayers, millions and millions and millions of public taxdollars!
This story really sums-up why I am preparing to run against a Corrupt and Murderous Sheriff:
“This man (Deputy Lawhorn) should be disciplined by God himself,” can be clearly heard by the author who captured it and who has become one of the Valley’s most respected Activists – Kayloni Bonner.
The Spokane County Sheriff’s Department recognizes the right of persons to lawfully record members of this department who are performing their official duties. Members of this department will not prohibit or intentionally interfere with such lawful recordings – SCSO Standard of Conduct. Yeah… right!?! And, another law biding citizen is denied his Constitutional Right for standing on the Word of God without any concern or intervention by Sheriff Knezovich.
At this point, you must be asking yourself the obvious question – why are there no video cameras in any of our City of Spokane Valley Patrol Vehicles or Body Cams on any of our City of Spokane Valley Police Officers? And, I think the answer is also obvious, because, dead Pastors, kids, and the violation of Citizen Rights would not be happening if Deputies/Officers were held accountable…
Decide for yourself, and ask yourself, how long will it be before Deputy Lawhorn gets himself into progressively deeper problems just like Deputy Hirzel did… ?
One thing we’ve learned by now with Sheriff Knezovich, is lessons unlearned in giving deputies complete freedom with no supervision, are lessons to be repeated. I thought most Mormons were pro-life? Apparently NOT according to Sheriff Knezovich… but, he’s not a real Mormon anyways is he? Watch the video and decide for yourself…
Sheriff Knezovich claims to have fired some 60-70 Deputies… but not one, not a single one, has ever been convicted for anything? How can you trust the integrity of your Sheriff’s Department under these circumstances???
Not even Deputy Cole Speer who committed Statutory Rape with a female student well over 5 years his junior – a legal requirement justifying Prosecution. Or Deputy Bodman, now missing from the SCSO in this election year for driving 75 m.p.h. down Sprague Ave., in the dark, with no lights and sirens in striking and killing Ryan Holyk – why does Prosecutor Haskell keep giving Knezovich these free passes? As Sheriff, this bullsh#t comes to an end.
The Sheriff placed a mysterious letter on the SCSO website claiming I had been asked to cease and desist… but unknown to Knezovich was that members of the family were actually funding our protests and our efforts in pressing for a re-investigation. What is truly amazing, is that Knezovich was actually acting like he was working on the behalf of the family!!!
I objected to Knezovich that Ryan Holyk had simply fell off his bike – suffering massive head and chest injuries, intubation and mechanical ventilation, and massive head and chest injuries… Knezovich threatened to arrest me and even stated that the Family wanted me to Cease and Desist. I appeared before the Sheriff’s CAB and demanded the truth, and that they not prematurely exonerate Knezovich as based on his own provided evidence… they didn’t listen.
And, nobody is listening to them now. A costly lawsuit and a Million dollar settlement was achieved for the family, and at taxpayer expense… but with no apology from the Sheriff. Who even built a phony video, at taxpayer expense, in staging a false outcome while misleading the public in getting re-elected. Who does this? Well, Sheriff Knezovich does this… all the time.
Sheriff Knezovich has asked the entire Valley City Council to “denounce” Scott Maclay, and specifically, Caleb Collier.
In fact, Knezovich has even texted me a number of individual demands to others… but, never a confirmation from any elected official.
Respect is earned, and even though there are those who don’t agree with my tactics… no one has even said that they disagree with my results!
I’ve asked to participate in the Sheriff’s Citizen’s Academy, and was rejected. I asked to participate in his CAB and was denied. I questioned his version of the truth in a multitude of outcomes with deputies that were never disciplined – not one – and while being disparaged for doing so.
I’ve endured a baseless defamation lawsuit, and with the assistance of a team of people interested in the truth, we have proven the truth in precise detail… resulting in Deputy Pendell being placed on the Spokane County Prosecutor’s “Brady Cop List.” And, of all of Knezovich’s fears in this election year, the possibility that Deputy Pendell did, in fact, personally hand over a gun to Roy Murry in the middle of the night, at his personal residence, that was capable of being converted to the murder weapon in the SFD Terry Canfield family murders… is now very likely. Resulting in very serious criminal implications for the both of them. As Sheriff, I would get to the bottom of this matter and Knezovich and Pendell’s role in it. Brian Breen, a retired SPD Internal Affairs Detective with 40 years experience engages Knezovich:
In detail: On the 23rd of September, 2017, I attended the Samuel Strahan Memorial at University High School. A public memorial, at a public high school that I once attended, as my kids, and even my grand kids.
I was surprised to see Knezovich there with a large contingent of City of Spokane Valley Police Officers. Knezovich, incited the Officers by stating that I was under investigation by the SCSO for making death threats against him, his wife, and his family.
Incredible and outrageous allegations that have now been proven completely false by the FBI. The Deputies harassed me while, as my public servants at a public event at a public high school, threatened to arrest me for Trespassing if I didn’t immediately leave… and I didn’t.
Knezovich initiated an incident in shoving me following the event, and while his Officers falsely arrested me, while giving me a very public flogging followed by solitary confinement in the Spokane County Jail. The Spokane County Prosecutor “dismissed” his charges the following Monday – and a Civil Rights lawsuit is now being formulated.
I personally appeared before the Sheriff’s Citizen Advisory Board (CAB) in urging the Board not to close the Holyk Investigation and in exonerating Deputy Bodman and Knezovich. I asked, with Knezovich in attendance, why the Board would even make this decision with an active lawsuit against the SCSO and Knezovich? Knezovich asked me what could possibly be missing from the evidence as provided in the three-ring binders in front of each and every one of his appointees to the Board? I asked if I could have one of the binders to inspect for myself in answering his question… and he replied… NO! Well, today, we know what was missing. It was the hat-band imprint from Ryan’s cap on Deputy Bodman’s Patrol Vehicle… and now even Deputy Bodman is missing from the SCSO???
Bob West, misusing his position as Co-Chair, now past co-chair, of the Sheriff’s Citizen Advisory Board… in contacting Brooks Clemmons – Pend Oreille County Prosecutor. Your tax dollars hard at work… right?
Brian Breen is the King of the Sheriff’s Deplorables. Without his continuing dedication, guidance, spiritual inspiration and involvement in pressing Knezovich for accountability, openness and transparency, I am sure I would personally be in jail… or even worse.
I’ve never met Brian, and he doesn’t even call me a friend. He is dedicated to the truth, and anyone who is a friend of the truth… well, he tolerates.

Maclay vs. Knezovich – The Main Event… Coming in May. Are you ready?
So, who will it be? A Corrupt and Murderous Sheriff with Blood on His Hands from Wyoming? Or a man with passion and a vision for accountability, openness and transparency from our own City of the Spokane Valley? The choice is coming… and the choice is yours!?!

Justice is coming for Ryan Holyk… and it’s me. Mathew 5:5
Editor’s Note: Scott Maclay has served as a Field Agent for the SCSO on the Federal Task Force that dismantled the Aryan Nations and the Order. He was never a Confidential Informant or a member of the FBI’s JTTF and regardless of what the local reckless press may construct, orchestrate, or otherwise misrepresent – I present with no criminal convictions.
