Meet "Machine Gun Joe Winslow" - under oath + TERRORIST ALERT?

Quartzsite Councilman Joe Winslow earned the nickname "Machine Gun" after he was caught on the town hall microphone before the March 23rd, 2010 town council meeting was called to order saying "I think if we could get all five of them in the front row, we'd just machine gun 'em" Councilman Lukkasson replied "Damn fine idea!"

"And they're contacting people all over the country with similar political beliefs, and that's why we had to DECLARE A STATE OF EMERGENCY"

"Based on my history, 24 years in the service, I'm more concerned about my reaction to his aggression"

"I've been diagnosed with PTSD and I'm a member of the DAV (Disabled American Veterans). And it is, that's what I'm concerned with, that he's going to get so far into my personal space that I'm going to react, and without thinking. It's just, I'm not making threats or anything like that...I'm not proud of that but It's just the way I am."

"I'm in a position where I felt it necessary for me to go out and purchase a gun, and I did. I went out and I bought a 12 gauge shotgun."

"If nothing else I would like to see him (Roth) disarmed."

  1. the incoherency/paranoia of this man is sad and disgusting. That he is in a position of government and can't handle somebody staring at them is telling of what his idea of a government official is. And that would be somebody you don't stare at and by this logic I would assume somebody that you don't question. What's sad is that he thinks that sniveling like a child and blaming his psychological imbalances so as to somehow heroically ditch accountability for his actions. How does he think he is qualified to lead if he can't take a little heat. what a joker!!!



    Joe, how did you end up in this mess? After 24 years of honorable service in the military, you made the decision to become a Town Council Member and serve your community. You now find yourself in league with a criminal cabal and see no easy way out. You are in a very bad situation; you cannot easily quit the criminal gang here in Quartzsite, no more so than a Mafia member can quit the Mafia. Joe, when you are in a hole, stop digging!

    Your actions on July 23rd in front of the Judge will make you seem a risk and a loose cannon to the cabal and your actions are continuing to draw unwanted attention to the cabal. They are concerned you will reveal damaging evidence and perception to these thugs, is as good as fact. Monitor their actions and you will see this is a fact. You have become a liability to the Cabal Leader and his criminal thugs. You may have been an insider in the past, but now you are an outsider. Observe the distance these criminals put between themselves and you, which is major clue.

    Is Mr. Roth really a threat to your safety in town? He is merely seeking to expose the criminal activity that is a part of Quartzsite government and police. Your biggest threat is from the cabal, your former allies. Now you have both the cabal and the citizens angry at you. The cabal is angry because of the international attention you brought to the criminal operation when you attacked Jennifer’s constitutional rights and had a part in her “kidnapping” in front of the world. The citizens are angry because you attacked Jennifer’s constitutional rights and are seen a key player in the Quartzsite government problem, right or wrong, it is the citizen’s perception. It is clear you are troubled by the actions of the last month, most would be terrified to be in this mess. At this point there is probably no one you can safely confide in, so you need to take action alone and with great stealth.

    Joe, it is time to repair the damage with your own honor and conscience and with the citizens of Quartzsite. It is not too late to reverse course and become an honorable voice for the citizens. Talk to Sgt. Ponce and get a statement on record, deliver evidence for safe keeping and be a witness. Talk to the Oathkeepers lawyers, they would be invaluable in helping you. Stay away from the La Paz County Sheriff Don Lowery; he is much too close to the Chief for safety. It is time to talk to the Feds and the State (DPS) and provide all the assistance and evidence you can. When it is time to go public, talk to the press and make public statements on the corruption and criminal activity. Do it quickly, these thugs are now desperate and may resort to all kinds of vile actions to cover their tracks.

    Show the people of Quartzsite and the World the kind of person you really are and for the sake of the Town do the right thing.


  3. I am amazed that a judge would issue a tro on the basis of this testimony. The guy basically said "I'm a loose cannon and therefore Roth should be prevented from being around me because I'm a physical threat to him."

  4. How prophetic Psy...where is Joe now? Hiding out in his 5th wheel and packing boxes for the troops. Better not to be seen or heard, in this particular case!
