A little sagacity here please: Several Federal criminal charges and a Federal civil lawsuit are what must be brought against the City of Reno, Reno Police Chief Steve Pitts, the arrogant involved Reno police officers for their obvious stupid, malicious, reckless and willful lawbreaking upon Kitty Jung. Several Federal criminal charges and a Federal civil lawsuit are what must be brought against the City of Sparks, Sparks Police Chief Steve Keefer, and the arrogant involved Sparks police investigators for their obvious stupid, malicious, reckless and willful civil rights violations upon Kitty Jung in agreeing to do what is clearly a “Code of Silence” conflict of interest and, then doing a “Code of Silence” kangaroo investigation that clearly further violated Kitty Jung's civil rights. The City of Reno and The City of Sparks have exposed themselves to a several millions of dollars of damages to Kitty Jung. At the start Kitty Jung was acting solely as a private citizen. When the Reno police stupidly, maliciously, recklessly, willfully and, arrogantly began violating their sworn duties and then violating her civil rights, Kitty Jung appropriately then identified herself as a Washoe County Commissioner.
What the City of Reno and the City of Sparks did to Kitty Jung both as a private citizen and a a public official weakened public confidence and undermined the sense of security for individual rights and was therefore AGAINST public policy.
In a representative democracy as America, the public hires public employees to act in the PUBLIC’s interests. ALL public employees are REQUIRED to act FOR the public. 63C Am.Jur.2d, Public Officers and Employees,§247:“As expressed otherwise, the powers delegated to a public officer are HELD IN TRUST FOR THE PEOPLE and are to be exercised on behalf of the government or of all citizens who may need the intervention of the officer. Furthermore, the view has been expressed that all public officers, within whatever branch and whatever level of government, and whatever be their private vocations, are trustees of the people, and accordingly labor under every disability and prohibition imposed by law upon trustees relative to the making of personal financial gain from a discharge of their trusts. That is, a public officer occupies a FIDUCIARY relationship to the political entity on whose behalf he or she serves AND OWES a fiduciary duty to the PUBLIC. It has been said that the fiduciary responsibilities of a public officer CANNOT be less than those of a private individual. Furthermore, it has been stated that any enterprise undertaken by the public official which tends to weaken public confidence and undermine the sense of security for individual rights is AGAINST public policy.”

The involved Reno police officers are working FOR and being PAID by the public at large. The involved Reno police officers were and are a relationship of trustee FOR the public, of which Kitty Jung was in this case. As such, public employees SHOULD both expect AND tolerate private and public criticism. The United States Supreme court has repeatedly upheld the right of a citizen to privately, publicly and anonymously criticize public employees. The involved Reno police officers are guilty of color of law, free speech suppression, unlawful detainment, kidnapping, false imprisonment, assault and battery, due process violations, failure to exercise reasonable care, violation of their fiduciary duties, infliction of emotional distress, use of excessive force, defamation, police brutality, psychological intimidation, impropriety, violation of their sworn oath to uphold the Constitution, inappropriate conduct, undermining security for individual rights and, weakening public confidence. The further illegal and unethical behaviors by the Cities of Reno and Sparks just made it worse for the damages they then wrongly inflicted upon Citizen Kitty Jung.
It is government and its employees who are REQUIRED to prove the guilt of a charge and conviction. That RELIEVES the one charged, here Kitty Jung, of ANY burden to PROVE his or her innocence. Police officers are held to a HIGHER standard. A people are either FREE from their government (from each other) or they are controlled subjects of a government and its public employees / police that illegally or unethically parcels out freedom as it sees fit. Here the Cities of Reno and Sparks acted illegally and unethically.
Because Due Process is A Constitutional Issue, a civil RIGHT, and one of the oaths ALL police officers take is to uphold and protect the Constitution, ALL police officers are held to a HIGHER standard, and that standard is fiduciary. In this case it is clear Reno Police, the City of Reno, Sparks Police, and The City of Sparks each FAILED to exercise reasonable care, each VIOLATED several laws, EACH violated their fiduciary duties and, undermined a citizen's sense of security.
In America, there is a legal presumption of innocence until proven guilty. Which ihe involved Reno police officers violated. If there is any HINT of presumption of guilt then Due Process is NOT followed and civil rights are violated. For civil charges or convictions against ANY American citizen there must be a clear and convincing preponderance of evidence. Preponderance is 50.000001% or more. For criminal charges or convictions against ANY American citizen there must be a clear and convincing beyond a reasonable doubt of the evidence. Kitty Jung was never charged but was punished, wrongly punished, by government, by government with guns and handcuffs.
The maxim that the King can do no wrong has no place in our American system of government. In America, it’s Semper pro Populus. The Cities of Reno and Sparks have done plenty wrong here against Kitty Jung.
Fiduciary duties are ethical or legal duties one party has to another. Broadly, these duties include duties of loyalty and duties of care to OTHERS. A PUBLIC employee has ANOTHER fiduciary duty to act in CITIZEN's benefit because citizens are the beneficiary – NO public employee can simply sit back and watch the beneficiary, you the citizen fall into greater difficulty or hardship. Yet that is exactly what the Cities of Reno and then Sparks did. They allowed, wrongly, a citizen to fall into greater difficulty and hardship
Because a beneficiary, the citizen, has the legal right to request AND receive information from a public public employee, and because a or public employee may need to take legal action against the beneficiary, the citizen, OR vice a versa, a public official and public employee has ANOTHER fiduciary duty to keep ALL their records and documentation related to the beneficiary’s account, the citizen's account, correct and up-to-date.

Kitty Jung's name must now be legally and publicly cleared.

The public official and public employee also must ensure that the data held within the public records and public documentation is accurate. If the beneficiary, the citizen finds that data in the records and documentation is not correct, it is the responsibility of the public official and public employee to modify the public records to accurately reflect the beneficiary’s, you the citizen requests, inquiries and proceedings. Kitty Jung's name must now be legally and publicly cleared.

When a fiduciary, your public official or public employee has special skills or becomes a fiduciary on the basis of representations of special skills or expertise such as police officer, deputy city attorney or judge, the fiduciary is under a DUTY to USE those skills in YOUR best interest. Your public officials AND public employees are REQUIRED to act in good faith WITH you, knowing that you the citizen was relying upon them to advise you CORRECTLY. The duty of the public official AND public employees is to be honest, be correct in their reporting, fully disclose and that disclosure includes what a citizen is too ignorant to know to ask as law is based on FAIR dealing.

Fiduciary duty and color of law touches on just SOME of the many HIGHER obligations of public service AND public employment above and beyond the minimum requirements of most public service and public employment ethics laws. Thinking about the parallels between fiduciary duties and public service and public employment ethics offers a good opportunity to think broadly about the obligations of public service and public employment beyond ethics.

Certainly when the public hires a public employee, the public is putting its trust and confidence in that person NOW on the PUBLIC dole to ACT in the public’s best interests.

The same is said when one becomes an employee of a public agency. The public agency trusts everyone on its team to put the PUBLIC’s interests first. Indeed, ALWAYS putting the PUBLIC’s interests FIRST is the essence of public service and public employment ethics and fiduciary duties.
