I'm not surprised by this death. I am a retired Federal Reserve Officer and 9/11 victim that was in Flagstaff in 2006 for a progressive respiratory disease contracted on 9/11. I was falsely arrested, brutalized, and denied medical assistance when I began going into respiratory arrest while at the detention center. The perpetrators were Deputies Mark Anton and Mark Street. The charges were dropped after I filed a brutality complaint and lawsuit and the entire affair was covered up by Lts. Cornelius and Gilliland, and Sgt. Barnes.

Finally justice! Mark Anton was fired last year, went on a rampage this past February resulting in him being arrested on 12 felony counts, including drug possession and use (crystal meth). He has pleaded guilty to several of the felonies and is awaiting sentencing! Now just awaiting karma to catch up with his supervisors. Be patient, it'll happen!

this Mark Anton guy...I met him online last year and he was quite charming, well spoken...I'm in the legal field, so I ran his name. That's how I got to THIS old post from 3008. After a few days of exchanging emails, telephone texts, he got UBER possessive, controlling...we hadn't even met in person, were just talking. I got a real hinky feeling about him after reading this and cut off communication with him. He sent me a number of disturbing texts, but since he was in Flag and I wasn't, I just let it finally run it's course. I'm glad to see now that my gut feeling about him served me well. He's not very stable, he feels he's persecuted and he's the victim. Ask him. He'll tell you. =)

After going ballistic and having an armed standoff with the Flag police, troopers, and FBI - threatening to kill his ex-wife, her boyfriend (a sheriff's Deputy - they even found a bullet with his name written on in), his family, and his former superiors, he was found crying in his closet like a baby, saying he wanted to die. He was taken into custody and charged with ~12 felonies. After being released from jail pending trial, he was arrested again for drug use.

Fast forward to the end he was given "aggressive probation" That sheriff's office is definitely criminal and malfeasant. With Anton's long record, he should be in jail for 20 years. One day he will do something to a police officer and then they might finally regret there incredibly stupid decisions Is this guys uncle the mayor or something? Any other cop or citizen or a real police force and real court system would be rotting in jail.. I wouldn't be surprised if he is still allowed to carry a firearm.

Anton, Gilliliand and Cornelious will have lots to account for when they appear before God.
