Tex McDonald and 14 Others CHARGED with FELONIES At CHUKCHANSI TRIBAL CASINO

Fifteen people involved in the Oct. 9 armed confrontation at Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino have been charged with multiple felonies, Madera County District Attorney Michael Keitz announced Friday.
The forced takeover of the casino occurred Oct. 9 when people directed by Tex McDonald, leader of one of the contentious factions of the Picayune Rancheria of Chukchansi Indians, took over the gaming center from another tribal faction. The casino and hotel has been closed since then.
Those charged include McDonald; his fellow tribal council member, Vernon King; McDonald’s tribal police chief, John Olivera; David Lee Dixon; Timothy Tofaute; Shawn Fernandez; Tyrone Mark Twain Bishop; Benjamin James Rhodes; Jim Glasscock; Brian Lec Auchenbach; John David Cayanne; Ronald Jones; David Paul Anderson; and Miguel Ramos.
All are charged with seven counts of kidnapping, seven counts of false imprisonment, eight counts of assault with a firearm, and one count each of assault with a deadly weapon and battery inflicting serious bodily injury, and five counts of assault with a stun gun.
A 15th man, Eric Domingo Flores Suniga, was charged with five counts of assault with a stun gun.

They are all corrupt not one of them should be allowed to walk free! Jenifer stanley, Dustin Graham, chance alberta, buzz bushman, Karen wynn, her kids, tracey, all the damn mc combs, vernon, tex, linda, monica, nancy, nokomus, dora, morris, the list goes on and on. They are all criminals! They should all be held accountable to their capacity of what they have done. None should be allowed EVER to run for council again. Unfortunately the chukchansi people do not have many credible respectable people so it's hard to find any who would make good council memebers. Keep it closed give it back to its people (we all know these creeps won't stick around with no money) and maybe they can make something work, if not then they have a big ass ghetto to place all their drugies

Back in 1990 I paid 10 dollars for my enrollment! I can't believe these guys have gone and f***** that up for me. Maybe Gilberts corderos relations need to start handing out refunds for all the enrollments he sold. What's the point of buying a spot in a tribe that has no casino!

Anonymous said...

Yeah, give this guy his 10 dollars back!!

Lmao. Tex should have been removed back in August he as well as a few others on his council were being removed for ethics violations rather than step down they fired all security officers who were not loyal (tex's words exactly) and fired tribal gaming commission, then lied to the press saying the rameriz family tried to takeover. I personally believe that the rameriz family should sue in civil court for slander and defamation of character. They blamed the citizen of picayune for a pretend takeover to cover up the fact they violated the constitution.

So you only want to be part of a tribe if there's money in it? That is why people are saying that all Indians are greedy. Even if this is the way you feel, you should be cautious about expressing it this way. It makes your motives very suspect.

Talk like this makes it sound like you put no value on your Indian heritage and only care about getting some cash out of belonging to a tribe. Isn't this the same attitude that is tearing up your people, and caused the Feds to close your casino? Now no one will get anything.

Rethink your attitude and get together with the other people in your tribe. Find a way to see the value in being a people, in fighting the corruption, in healing the wounds of disenrollment, and uniting to restore you honor and dignity as a people.

This is how to prove that you can be a nation instead of a collection of greedy people intent on taking whatever they can get. Show everyone that you all desire to share equally in tribal gaming for the benefit of all. When you can do that, the BIA, the NIGC, and the local government will have confidence in your ability to govern yourselves, operate your casino, and be a force for good in the community.

That would be a welcome change to all the negative news that is coming out of Picayune Rancheria.

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

"Like". This Madera County Sheriff's office sure does appear to have a hard on for punishing Chukchansi.

Tex has two strikes. Who let him in our constitution has failed us. So if vernon and tex are going to jail they no longer have a quorum. So they can't legally act any longer. They better call charles and amanda back. They should sit a new board fuck Ayala and Lewis and lynda and donna should be cellmates for conspiracy org yea monica to

They will not like it in prison but the thing not looked at here as well is all of the civil lawsuits that are coming to the tune of millions .There will be hefty payout at chuchanci in the coming year and a lot of people will have hit the jackpots without spinning a wheel .
