Good day, eh?  Well not so good if you are Deputy County Attorney John Douglas Mangum of the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office who just got caught RED HANDED lying to a grand jury and allowing a witness to COMMIT PERJURY – any one of these CRIMINAL OFFENSES are serious enough to warrant disbarment!!


Yes, you heard correctly, ladies and gentlemen!  John Douglas Mangum committed criminal acts.

Mangum is clearly following in the footsteps of his revenge pornographer buddy James McGibney (who we don’t like) when it comes to lying in court and submitted fabricated evidence.  One wonders what Mangum’s family members, neighbors, and coworkers will think of this.  After all, the Internet is forever and each time a member of a jury Google’s Mangum’s name, they will come here to this lovely blog.


According to sources close to the investigation (which consist solely of the voices in our head), Mangum is facing an internal affairs investigation being conducted by County Attorney Allister Adel’s newly implemented Prosecution Integrity Program.  These sources also confirm that the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has also initiated their own investigation.

And it goes without saying that the Arizona State Bar has opened up a full investigation, as well.


One would think that Mangum would have learned his lesson after watching all of his supervisors and co-workers crash and burn as a result of all of the wrongful prosecutions of over 30 individuals as a result of last summer’s Black Lives Matter protests in Phoenix.  But according to his fellow students at the Sandra Day O’Conner School of Law at Arizona State University in Tempe, Mangum has been consistently described as being terribly unprepared and a slow learner.

One of his classmates has reported to us, your Admins of the BV Files, a disturbing incident involving Mangum and a female student involving allegations of sexual harassment – and worse –  that will be the subject of an upcoming article once we get our facts together.  After all, we would not want to be sued for defamation, would we?


An in-depth investigation has revealed what can best be described as extremely unsettling acts of personal misconduct in the life of Mr. Mangum the public revelation of which will cause wide reaching reservations.

The bottom line is that, if you’re breaking the law and your job is to uphold the law, you shouldn’t have that job.



Yes, recent news reports are correct.  Your Admins of the BV Files are about to change because of fears of super secret FBI investigations and long-awaited “federal” indictments and very scary shit like that.

So, without further ado, we introduce you to our new leadership.  CHECK IT OUT!!

As many of you, our teeming MILLIONS of readers, listeners, and supporters, will recall, we here at the BV Files have been long-time supporters and admirers of the Taliban.  Or is it ISIS.


But the point is that it is time for a change.





Taliban calls emergency meeting after US, its largest donor, pulls funding

You can sponsor the Taliban for only $5 per day!!!

AFGHANISTAN — Nonprofit organization the Taliban called an emergency Board of Directors meeting earlier this week after its largest donor, the United States of America, pulled all financial support, sources say.

“Ladies and gentlemen, I appreciate the great work you’ve all been doing, but I would not have called you here if the circumstances were anything less than dire,” said Taliban leader Hibatullah Akhundzada.  “Pretty much our entire budget was reliant on Uncle Sam, and we need to find some new sources of cash flow ASAP.”

The Taliban said it will be able to continue operating for a few months on donations from individual opium traffickers and through extortion and assassination-related fundraising drives.  But it won’t be able to thrive in the long run without finding another superpower with deep pockets and very little accountability to invade Afghanistan. 

Akhundzada said the Board also considered raising money through online crowdfunding campaigns, but “the American bastards took the internet when they left, too.”

A few financiers, including neighboring country Pakistan and billionaire Jeff Bezos, have expressed interest in invading, but neither could guarantee the inept leadership or incoherent strategy the U.S. provided.  The Taliban has found that generating leads in an economic environment racked by COVID-19 can be difficult, especially since it gutted and/or beheaded most of its fundraising department over the past few years.

“Most of our best lead generators blew themselves up back in 2009 or 2010,” said Akhundzada.  “Others have left to take chic jobs with ISIS or al-Qaeda.  It’s becoming harder and harder to find good people to join your terrorist organization.”

Despite its uncertain future, the Taliban remains confident it will find another superpower to invade Afghanistan before its financial situation becomes fatal.

“If history proves anything,” said Akhundzada, “it’s that there’s always someone dumb enough to invade Afghanistan.”

In the meantime, as the last American forces leave Afghanistan this month, the war-torn nation is looking forward to peace, said the incoming Taliban Minister of Public Executions.



“For decades, our people have suffered under the scourge of war,” said Shahabuddin Delawar, behind a towering stack of papers listing names of people who need to be publicly executed.  “We’ve lost generations to foreign hegemony, generations that should have been beheaded in soccer stadiums by our rightful government.  We are just looking forward to picking up where we left off in 2001.”

Delawar then shook his head as he considered the stack of names in front of him.

“So much work to do,” he sighed.

Other Taliban officials agreed that they, too, were looking forward to peace.

“With the Americans retreating before us, we must rebuild our nation to be mightier than ever” said Khan Muttaqi, acting Minister of Opium Production.  “Afghanistan looks forward to a peace dividend that will allow us to expand upon our relationships with neighboring cartels to ensure we can rid our land of all this primo opium we’re going to be producing.”


Mawlawi Akhundzada, the incoming Minister for Harboring International Terrorists, was practically giddy at the prospect for peace.  “We’re going to party like it’s the 7th Century,” he gushed.

In Washington D.C., the Taliban’s optimism was met with scorn.

“We’re not surprised that the Taliban are getting ahead of themselves as though they were a legitimate government,” said Marvin O’Kelly, CIA’s Assistant Director for Messing Around With Other Nations Because Why Not (MAWONBWN).  “But there’s still a democratically elected government in place that they have to execute first.  And if they do, they should know we’ll be watching them very closely.  Well, pretty closely.  Probably.  Unless something happens in Taiwan or South Korea or something, but what are the odds of that?”


Stay tuned for further updates from our new Taliban BV Files administrators.



Notwithstanding the fact that this anonymous Twitter user is somehow claiming to know the identities of anonymous commentators on our blog (which is literally an impossibility as not even your Admins of the BV Files know the real identities of you, our teeming MILLIONS of readers, listeners, and supporters who like to engage in their Constitutionally protected right of Free Speech and post comments), we wonder what this is all about?  Who are all of these individuals and why are they meeting in downtown Phoenix??

For those of you not paying attention, April Sponsel is a former very high ranking prosecutor with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office who was recently fired for her role in obtaining wrongful indictments against those BLM protesters mentioned above.  Sponsel, like her co-worker Mangum, got caught telling lies to a grand jury as well as submitting perjured testimony from law enforcement officers so as to get a group of protestors wrongfully arrested and indicted.

It is almost like none of those idiots in the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office (“MCAO”) has ever heard of the First Amendment before!!!  According to news reports in the Arizona Republic and the Phoenix New Times, the taxpayers of Maricopa County have shelled out over $50 million in taxpayer money in recent years in order to settle past lawsuits filed by people wrongfully prosecuted in violation of their First Amendment rights.  WOW!!!!

$50,000,000 paid out in lawsuit settlements

Can you imagine how many school teachers one could hire for $50 million?

How many potholes could be filled.  How many shelters for the homeless.  Or new fire trucks.  Or housing vouchers for people who lost their jobs due to the Covid pandemic.  Or for basically anything else?


In fact, former prosecutor April Sponsel has just filed a Notice of Claim with the MCAO and County Board of Supervisors stating that Allister Adel herself was personally involved in the presentation of false and perjured Grand Jury testimony and in the bringing of bogus indictments against over 30 innocent members in violation of their First Amendment rights.  CHECK IT OUT!!



April Sponsel's Notice of Claim agianst MCAO



An recent report by Phoenix news station ABC-15 said that an outside investigator found that the that protest response officers built the case on dubious and non-existent evidence and intentionally tried to “keep things quiet” to circumvent the normal process of classifying a brand new street gang so as to wrongfully indict these people by falsely claiming that they were members of an organized gang (like the Proud Boys, for instance).





Beaumont, TX private investigator Philip R. Klein


As many of you will recall, failed private investigator Philip Klein is suing Texas oilman / billionaire Bill Kallop for breach of contract in a lawsuit being defended by your American Heros & Honorary Admins of the BV Files Houston attorneys Jeffrey Dorrell & Anthony Laporte.  Klein is claiming that there was a written contract between him and Kallop for Klein’s private investigative services.

Unfortunately for Klein, there never was a written contract.  In fact, it has been established by an independent hand writing expert that the contract is a forgery and that Bill Kallop never signed it!!

Hey – does not the FBI like to investigate forgeries of signatures?  It certainly seems that super special agent Walker Wicevich of the Phoenix FBI has a lot of extra time on his hands to be running around trying to investigate state level crimes, despite the FBI’s mandate being strictly federal crimes, right?  So maybe Wicevich can look into this.

Walker Wicevich


Might we suggest that someone give Wicevich a call and see if he can get to the bottom of Klein’s criminal scheme to try to rip off Bill Kallop!

In fact, in an effort to help save Wicevich some time, here is a list of potential witnesses the FBI can start contacting to find out about the crimes Klein has committed.  CHECK IT OUT!!






Klein’s Go Fund Me account has been permanently suspended due to allegations of fraud and misrepresentation.


Yes, Philip Klein is a fraud and a con artist who scams the families of missing children.  And he clearly scammed Bill Kallop with Klein’s bogus invoices falsely charging him for work Klein never even did.



As our long time readers will recall, Klein has been an internet bully who likes to post false and defamatory claims about random people whom he does not like on his social media accounts. 




He also likes to file SLAPP lawsuits using his attorney John Morgan of Beaumont, Texas, which he loses in spectacular style.

Brent Kallop

Klein is mentally ill and appears to have a serious substance abuse problem.  Perhaps he could use a drink of some very fine spirits!






So which is it?



The Covid numbers for March 2, 2020, are on the far left-hand side where the graph is near zero.  As you can see, the current August 2021 numbers are as bad as it was last year starting in October 2020 through February 2021.

This sucks.  And it is only going to get worse as it now appears that having the vaccine is no protection from possible future Covid infections and does nothing to prevent you from being able to pass Covid onto others.  The vaccine is likely to make a new Covid infection much less severe.  But it now appears that fully vaccinated people with “breakthrough” COVID Delta infections carry as much virus as the unvaccinated!

A study by University of Oxford scientists has found that people who contract the Delta variant of COVID-19 after being fully vaccinated carry a similar amount of the coronavirus as those who catch the disease and have not been inoculated. The researchers stressed that vaccination still offers good protection against catching the disease in the first place, and protects against getting seriously ill with it.

“With Delta, infections occurring following two vaccinations had similar peak viral burden to those in unvaccinated individuals,” the study, which has not yet been peer reviewed, concludes.  Viral “burden” or viral load refers to how much coronavirus-infected people carry and thus “shed,” or release into the environment around them, where it can potentially infect others.  The high viral loads found in the study are a strong indicator that the risks of transmission from both vaccinated and unvaccinated people with the Delta variant could be similar.


All that said, some facts are well established at this point.  Vaccinated people infected with the virus are much less likely to need to go to the hospital, much less likely to need intubation and much less likely to die from the illness.  There’s no doubt that vaccines provide significant protection.  But a large proportion of the nation — almost 30% of U.S. adults — have not been vaccinated, a fact that has conspired with the highly contagious delta variant to push the country into a new wave of outbreaks. 





SPECIAL GUEST COLUMNIST – Robert Campos, attorney at law


You have probably watched a legal television show and watched someone get “indicted” on the show.  Have you wondered: What is a grand jury?  What is an indictment?  How does a real grand jury operate?    

There are differences between a federal grand jury and a state grand jury. Both are set up to investigate crimes and to determine if formal charges should be brought against the accused.  I am going to concentrate on what happens at a state grand jury, specifically Arizona.  There are a lot of legal statutes and formal rules of criminal procedure that govern how a grand jury operates and what limited rights you have as the target of the investigation.  I am going to give you a good basic understanding of what happens without all the mumbo jumbo.  

As a former prosecutor, I presented cases before grand juries.  A grand jury is composed of 16 people from the community.  These 16 people serve as a grand juror for 120 days (4 months).  Usually, these 16 people serve one full day a week and hear cases presented to them.  When I was a prosecutor, each case was presented to a grand jury panel within 20 minutes.  Grand jury proceedings are very secret, and it is a crime to reveal what happens in a grand jury case.  

The rationale for secrecy is to prevent the person under investigation from finding out and running away to avoid arrest.  Another reason for secrecy is to prevent a person’s good name from being smeared publicly if it turns out the person is innocent, and the grand jury does not issue an indictment.  No one knows then that you were at one point a target or under investigation for a crime.  

A grand jury does not determine if you are guilty.  It only determines if there is enough evidence that you “probably” did something wrong.  The standard is therefore called “probable cause.”  This is a very low standard and usually is defined as the grand jurors are 51% sure that you probably committed the crime alleged in an indictment. In practical terms, 9 out of the 16 grand jurors (or 51% of them) must vote that they think you probably committed the crime.  There is no requirement that all 16 agree –only 9 are needed. 

Grand jurors are people just like you.  A grand juror cannot have a felony conviction and must be able to act “impartially and without prejudice.”  The grand jurors come early in the morning and stay all day.  The pace is fast.  Prosecutors want to get as many indictments on as many cases as possible on that given day.  So, picture in your mind a big room.  There is a large table, maybe rectangular or round, and seated are 16 people or grand jurors with their names before them on paper name plates.  

There is a court reporter who will take down all the testimony and swear in all the witnesses.  Rounding out the people in the room is the prosecutor who is presenting the evidence.  The prosecutor will call a witness, this witness is almost always a police officer or detective.  The detective is sworn in and testifies about the case.  The grand jurors have the right to question the detective or request further evidence. This rarely happens.  Grand jurors often just go with the flow, asking little to no questions, or never asking for further investigation or witnesses to be called.  Why?

When grand jurors are first selected or “empaneled”, they are read every state statute that they will need to make charging decisions.  Yes, every statute.  Imagine sitting there as one crime after another (such as armed robbery, murder, rape, disorderly conduct, possession or sale of every kind of drug, criminal trespass, forgery, possession of explosives, misconduct with weapons, child abuse, child pornography, you get the idea) and the definitions of the crimes are read to you for hours upon hours.  

You are also given a copy of the criminal code, listing every crime imaginable.  You now are prepared to do justice!  Lawyers go to law school for 3 years to learn all this.  As a grand juror, you have done it in one day!

You are then presented your first case and first “draft” indictment.  A draft indictment is just a formal allegation that the target committed a crime or crimes. If the state thinks the target went into a Circle K and stole some beer without paying, the target could face a “draft” indictment charging the target with 3 counts, such as Count I, Theft; Count II, Shoplifting; and Count III, Burglary.  

If the target possessed a screwdriver the target could also be charged with Possession of a Burglary Tool.  The State can make a simple crime into a legal nightmare.  The State calls one witness -a cop- who testifies to everything, hearsay is allowed.  What this means is that one witness -the cop- can tell the grand jurors what everyone else said or did in the case, without the State having to call the actual witnesses.  Grand jurors really have no clue at the beginning of their tenure.  

As they get more experience, they may ask questions and become savvier.  But if this happens, it is usually at the end of their 4-month service.  If a grand jury begins to ask too many questions, the State can elect to bring only the easiest of cases to that grand jury and the more serious cases to a grand jury that asks no questions.  The State will have multiple grand jury panels going at the same time.  

After the witness testifies, the court reporter, the witness and the prosecutor leave the room.  The grand jurors then deliberate to determine if they believe probable cause exists that the target committed all three crimes.  If 9 out of the 16 find probable cause, the draft indictment is signed by the foreperson.  

The grand jurors are not obligated to follow the draft indictment offered to them by the prosecutor.  The grand jurors could draft their own indictment.  But remember they only had a one-day crash course.  They are not going to do the work themselves-they will rely on the State.  When I presented cases, I would wait outside until I saw a green light come on.  On the outside of the room were two lights: a red light (the grand jury was deliberating) and a green light (it is okay to come in as they had decided).  

I would enter with the court reporter and the foreperson would announce the decision.  At this point, I may have requested that an arrest warrant issue for the defendant or I may have requested that only a summons be issued.  A judge makes this decision. 

Where is the accused in all of this?  What can the accused do?  Frankly, little to nothing.  This is happening in secret.  The target has no idea and has no input.  Sometimes, the target has notice that a grand jury will convene.  It is too long to discuss why in this blog.  But there are times that a target will know in advance.  

If this is the case, the target can ask the grand jury foreperson to allow the target to come in and testify in his or her defense.  If the grand jury votes in favor, the target and his or her lawyer can come into this secret room and secret process.  The lawyer is not allowed to say anything except to his client, generally a whisper in the ear, which always looks sneaky to the grand jurors.  Testifying like this is risky.  

If you are the target, you may have no idea what you are being accused of, or what evidence has already been presented against you, and you could really hurt your defense later.  However, if you have compelling evidence or testimony in your defense, it is quite possible to convince the grand jurors to not indict you.  You leave free of any criminal charges.  I have been able to help clients in this manner.  

The rules of criminal procedure allow you the opportunity to challenge the presentation.  There are time limits and the challenges are narrow: Were you “denied a substantial procedural right?”  Legalese for how badly were you screwed?  If you face a grand jury indictment, if you are arrested on charges, or if you receive a summons in the mail to appear in court, it is extremely important to hire a lawyer immediately.  You have very little time to challenge the grand jury’s findings.  Once the time elapses, you will not be allowed to challenge the presentation of evidence, or lack of presentation evidence, again.

At one time in our early history, I believe the grand jury system worked just fine.  Now, the system is geared for efficiency and not justice.  Grand juries are tasked with knowing and understanding the entire criminal code in one day.  We have passed so many laws that lawyers who practice criminal law must re-read the statutes to keep up and must attend continuing legal education to understand the nuances of the law.  

Grand jurors have no real clue.  Therefore, you always hear the famous quote “that a ham sandwich can be indicted” by a grand jury.  This is often true.  Grand juries often see the same prosecutor presenting cases every week.  Grand jurors begin to forge an unspoken friendship and pact with the prosecutor: “We are working together for justice.”  

Grand jurors are not sequestered from the prosecutor.  When I presented cases, grand jurors would bring coffee and donuts.  I would share with the grand jurors a box of doughnuts and with a sly smile, I would walk away knowing that we were indeed sharing more than a doughnut together.


So some articles that we write are super hard and take a lot of time.  Some articles, like this one, seem to write themselves.  In this article you, dear reader, are asked a simple question:  Is what prosecutor John Douglas Mangum said to the grand jury about the law and the elements of the offense the truth or a lie?

If he lied, its GAME OVER and his bar card will be headed to the shredder.


Your American Hero & Honorary Admin of the BV Files Tom Retzlaff has been accused of Computer Tampering by the Phoenix grand jury.  Specifically, he has been accused of violating Section 13-2316(a)(5) of the Arizona Revised Statutes by supposedly sending his daughter, Brittany Retzlaff, some emails.  Specifically, the indictment says:

THOMAS CHRISTOPHER RETZLAFF, on or between May 1, 2018 and January 31, 2019, acting without authority or exceeding authority for use, serving no legitimate purpose and causing substantial emotional distress to Brittany Retzlaff, recklessly did use a computer, computer system, or network to engage in a scheme or course of conduct directed at Brittany Retzlaff, that seriously alarmed, tormented, threatened, or terrorized Brittany Retzlaff.


The prosecution is claiming that Retzlaff sent Brittany a several emails over a period of nearly one year.

The elements of an offense are the things that the State needs to prove took place beyond a reasonable doubt if they hope to secure a conviction.

13-2316. Computer tampering;

A. A person who acts without authority or who exceeds authorization of use commits computer tampering by:

5. Recklessly using a computer, computer system or network to engage in a scheme or course of conduct that is directed at another person and that seriously alarms, torments, threatens or terrorizes the person.  For the purposes of this paragraph, the conduct must both:

(a) Cause a reasonable person to suffer substantial emotional distress.

(b) Serve no legitimate purpose.


According to recently filed court documents from this case, the transcript from the grand jury proceeding revealed that the prosecutor, John Douglas Mangum, engaged in the following exchange with a member of the grand jury when that juror expressed “confusion and hesitation” regarding to the computer tampering charge.

Grand Juror:  I understand everything except computer tampering, and that might just be me, but what does computer tampering come in?

Mr. MANGUM: In further reference you can read all of the statute, A.R.S. 13-2316. Specifically, it’s subsection A, paragraph 5 that talks about computer tampering and using a computer or accessing a computer or computer system network. And essentially, as Ms. Anderson has previously read to you, that engages in tormenting, harassing someone and serves no legitimate purpose and causes them some sort of distress. [Emphasis added.]


The problem for the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office is that this is a BIG FAT LIE (to use a legal term).  According to documents filed by the defense, Mangum mislead the grand jury and intentionally “watered down” what the elements are for this offense by falsely claiming that the victim only needs to have suffered “some sort of distress”, as opposed to the “substantial emotional distress” that the law requires a victim to have suffered!

The defense claims that Retzlaff was denied a substantial procedural right – and the case law seems to back this up.  100% VERIFIED!!

Specifically, an accused person is entitled to due process in the grand jury proceedings.
Crimmins v. Superior Court, 137 Ariz. 39, 668 P.2d 882 (1983); State v. Emery, 131 Ariz. 493, 642 P.2d 838 (1982).  The due process rights of the accused are protected by the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution and by Article 2 Sections 4, 24, and 30 of the Arizona Constitution. 

Due process requires that a prosecutor read the applicable statutes to the Grand Jury.  See O’Meara v. Gottsfield, 174 Ariz. 576, 578, 851 P.2d 1375, 1377 (1993).  Thus, if the prosecutor FAILED to read the applicable statute to the Grand Jury, Retzlaff’s due process rights were violated and it is GAME OVER for the prosecution – 100% VERIFIED!!

Again, go back and read again the explanation above provided by Phoenix attorney Robert Campos about how grand juries work.


Grand jurors often just go with the flow, asking little to no questions, or never asking for further investigation or witnesses to be called.

As they get more experience, they may ask questions and become savvier.  But if this happens, it is usually at the end of their 4-month service.  If a grand jury begins to ask too many questions, the State can elect to bring only the easiest of cases to that grand jury and the more serious cases to a grand jury that asks no questions.  The State will have multiple grand jury panels going at the same time.


Clearly, the prosecution gets to place their thumbs on the scales of justice.  So when a prosecutor, someone who they are told they can trust, tells them what the law is supposed to be, you do not think that they are not going to believe him or her?

So when Mangum told the grand jury that the victim need only have suffered “some emotional distress”, as opposed to the legally required “substantial emotional distress”, that’s a real problem.

And, as we have seen from the actions of former prosecutor April Sponsel, it is clearly a very widespread pattern and practice of prosecutors in Maricopa County to lie to the grand jury and to misrepresent the law and the facts in order to secure indictments against innocent people.


QUESTION:  The State has to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that Retzlaff acted without authority or exceeds authorization of use of a computer, computer system or network when he supposedly sent his daughter some emails, right?  So if he did send those emails (a fact that is apparently hotly in dispute), he would have presumably done so using his own computer and his own email service, right? 

So the question begs:  How could he be guilty of acting without authority or exceeding authorization when it comes to his very own computer and email service?

According to Westlaw, which contains ALL of the case law decisions pertaining to A.R.S. §13-2316, this statue has never before been used in a case involving emails.  It has only been used in cases involving someone taking / using someone else’s debit or credit card, or making a credit card skimmer (like on a gas pump) so as to make duplicate charge cards.  Or the stuff like McGibney’s employee, Deric Lostutter did (illegally hacking into a school’s computer system to steal information).  Or like what Matthew Keys did when he accessed his former employer’s computer system in order to deface their website.

The bottom line is that the computer system that has to be used appears to have to be one over which the person has to seek permission or authorization to use.  But if the computer belongs to that person, then appears the prosecution is trying to shoe-horn the facts into a place that they are not meant to go.  At least in the humble opinion of your Admins of the BV Files.


Another thing the defense raised is the claim that the the prosecutor and his law enforcement officer witness who testified before the grand jury both told a BIG FAT LIE (to use a legal term) when they specifically claimed that an affidavit that they claim was forged was filed in one of the McGibney-related civil lawsuits.  Yes, you heard that correctly.  This comes straight from the court documents.  CHECK IT OUT!!

Mr. Mangum: Now, additionally, Mr. Retzlaff has been involved in some civil litigation; is that correct?

Mr. Mennella:  Yes, he has.

Mr. Mangum:  And we talk about it only because of the context of a certain affidavit that had been filed?

Mr. Mennella:  Yes.


The “Mr. Mennella” referenced above is Anthony Mennella, a detective with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office who is apparently working with super special agent Walker Wicevich.




Here are the court documents so you can read it all for yourselves and come to your own conclusions.  READ THIS DOCUMENT VERY CLOSELY SO YOU CAN SEE WHAT EVIDENCE THE PROSECUTION HAS TO SUPPORT THEIR CLAIMS AND FROM WHOM THEY GOT THIS ‘EVIDENCE’ FROM!




So two things are glaringly obvious here.  One is that this FBI guy, Wicevich, has been in regular contact with James McGibney (who we don’t like).  Something everyone already knew.

The other is that James McGibney (who we don’t like) is the original source of this claim that a “forged affidavit” was filed in one of the McGibney LOLsuits.

And, lastly, it is obvious that FBI Special Agent Tyrel Walker Lester Wicevich (aka “Walker Wicevich”) is a big fan of the BV Files blog and one of our regular readers who likes to come here and make screen shots, which he then likes to put in his court papers.

But is that not something that attorneys Jay Leiderman and John Morgan also used to do?  And how well did that work out for them??

Just from our reading of the many documents that we have seen and stuff that has been emailed to us, your Admins of the BV Files, the State’s case really is pretty weak.  Trying to claim that something posted here on this blog is an “affidavit” and claiming it is a forgery subject to criminal prosecution is likely the stupidest thing that we have ever heard of during our more than 7 years of reporting on all of these stupid LOLsuits and SLAPP litigation.

  • How does the prosecution propose to authentic something posted on an anonymous, overseas blog?
  • How does the prosecution propose to identify the specific author or creator of this so-called “forgery”?
  • How does the prosecution propose to identify the specific individual responsible for posting it on our blog? After all, McGibney has repeatedly claimed in court documents that he has personally identified at least 8 individuals as running this blog. Am I right?

According to Judicial Admissions made by James McGibney (who we don’t like) in his state and federal court lawsuits, McGibney claims – under oath – that there are around 11 other people who run this blog.  CHECK IT OUT!!



Amended Complaint -- McGibney v The Internets


McGibney vs The Internets - Texas Lawsuit



So which one of these individuals is the Arizona prosecutor going to claim is responsible for this “affidavit” and what PROOF will Mr. Mangum have to support his claims?  Remember – this is in a real court of law, not Twitter Court.  So the evidence used must be relevant and admissible.  Reliance on internet gossip or screen shots, or McGibney’s self-serving “declarations” is not going to be allowed in Real Court.  Twitter Court, sure.  You can do that.  But not in Real Court.




  • And we are deeply curious as to how the prosecution is going to claim that anything posted on this blog is a “forgery”, as that term is defined under the law.





And what appears to be the final nail in the coffin for John Douglas Mangum is this little tidbit.  CHECK IT OUT!!



So we have at least three inescapable facts here:

  1. The prosecution misrepresented the elements of the computer tampering offense to the grand jury;
  2. The law enforcement witness lied to the grand jury by falsely claiming that the “affidavit” had been filed in a civil case;
  3. The claim that there is an “affidavit” is based solely on some screen shots that Wicevich made of this blog and that the “affidavit” does not exist anywhere in a physical form; and,
  4. There existed a signed agreement between Brittany Retzlaff and her father authorizing him to take certain actions regarding her credit and finances.



By the way, if anyone is feeling froggie and wants to take legal action regarding our publication of these court records, be sure to read over Cochise County Attorney v. Morgan, No. 2 CACV 20180093, 2019 WL 2474727 (Ariz. App. June 13, 2019) regarding the Constitutionality of A.R.S. § 13-2812 before deciding on pulling the trigger.




I win, motherfuckers!!


So long, and thanks for all the fish!
