CBS 5 - KPHO
Turns out, the well done investigative report on KPHO (by reporters Heather Moore and Gilbert Zermeno) centered on Doug Clark. Clark is the Constable for the Downtown Justice Precinct.
His name immediately rang a bell here, because it had just come up in research on the MCSO's Cold Case ("MCSOCCP"). Clark was one of the founding directors of the MCSOCCP in 2006, and had submitted the exemption application to the IRS. And, while he did not factor into Arizona's Politics' articles yesterday, the coincidence was too much to ignore.*
Incidentally, although yesterday's KPHO report did not mention it, Clark has a long history of appearing in the news media. Nearly two years ago, KPHO also featured him in an investigative report.
The subject? That a number of MCSO posse members have criminal records. Here is the portion about Clark:
"One posse member with an extensive disciplinary file is Douglas Clark, who also happens to be a constable. Clark has been counseled for rolling a county vehicle, driving 91 mph in a 45-mph zone, using his siren when not on a call, and using red-and-blue lights installed on his personal vehicle to look for something his wife had lost in the road.
* Clark may no longer be a Sheriff's Posse member, due to his elected status as Constable, but he could still be involved in the "The Maricopa Sheriff's Cold Case Posse, Inc."
