Boulder City Fires Finn

April 16, 2013

All Posts, News

Boulder City, Nevada fired Police Chief Thomas Finn when he returned from a three-month-long, paid medical leave yesterday morning. No one was surprised. Boulder City named Finn’s putative replacement, a Vegas Metro Deputy Chief named Bill Conger, acting chief March 13.

While on leave, Finn filed ethics complaints against three of the Boulder City Politicians who fired him and filed a religious discrimination complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. In that complaint which is still pending, Finn alleged he had been unfairly criticized because he is Roman Catholic and most of his bosses are Mormons.

Finn also had a press release ready yesterday. City manager David Fraser “offered me the opportunity to resign my position, which I immediately declined,” Finn wrote. “I was then advised that my employment with the City of Boulder City as Chief of Police was terminated.” Fraser and City Attorney Dave Olsen then watched as Finn cleaned out his desk. “I have, for the most part, enjoyed a rewarding 32-year career, fourteen of those years as a chief of police,” Finn wrote. He added that he intended “to make Boulder City a better place to live and work.”

Mongols And Stubbs

Finn got into trouble last June when he decided to bully members of the Mongols Motorcycle Club while they were in his town on vacation. The Mongols had hired a lawyer named Stephen Stubbs to mediate any possible disputes with city officials and Finn was allegedly almost as rude to Stubbs as he was to the Mongols.

Stubbs accused Finn of multiple felonies and misdemeanors and urged city officials to investigate those charges in October. Finn then tried to sue Stubbs, Olsen and others into silence by filing a defamation lawsuit against his critics on November 21, 2012. Stubbs accused Finn of filing a nuisance suit to silence his critics. A judge dismissed Finn’s suit and ordered the Chief to pay Stubbs’ the cost of defending himself.

On November 29, the Boulder City Council voted to have Stubbs’ allegations against Finn investigated by the Nevada Attorney General. The findings of that investigation were then forwarded to the Clark County District Attorney and remain a closely guarded secret.

On December 11, the City Council ordered an audit of the Police Department by an “outside agency.” The International City/County Management Association’s Center for Public Safety Management completed the audit last month. Among other things, the audit discovered a missing M-16. Finn called the audit a “hack job.”

Finn had been Boulder City Police Chief since 2006. He had been on paid leave since January 16. Boulder City officials had no comment on the firing other than to say Boulder City had “separated employment” with Finn. The Boulder City Review has reported that Finn demanded a $250,000 buy out to go away quietly but the city refused.

    It’s quite obvious he was in law enforcement to help the citizens of Boulder City stay safe. By fucking robbing them?? There are so many underlying stories here! What a conceited prick! $250000.00 to go away quietly?! What a fucking moron. What’s his next move? Extort his paperboy for his subscription money??

    Great job Mr. Stubbs.

    Seeya, Finn, you gutless, hypocrite, pussy, asshole-on-a-power-trip piece of shit. Kill yourself from the shame, it’s the best thing you could do for the city and our planet, you useless fucktard.

    A virtual handshake to you Bowtie, for your dedication and hard work in ridding the city of a scumbag who knew nothing about being a decent human much less being a decent pig.

  3. Dirty Dingus McGee Says:

    Boo hoo. Poor ole Finn. Now that the boot is on the other foot, and planted squarely in your ass, it sucks don’t it?

    One of the times where good things happen to bad people.

    See ya.

  4. Paladin Says:

    Because Finn was fired and not honorably retired, Finn automatically loses his rights under HR 218 (the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act), which means that Finn can’t carry a concealed firearm anywhere in the U.S. or its territories.

    Also, because Finn was fired and criminal charges may be pending, Finn may forfite his pension and all his contributions to his pension if he’s convicted.

    Long May You Ride (to those that deserve to),

    “The Boulder City Review has reported that Finn demanded a $250,000 buy out to go away quietly but the city refused.”

    So this move if true says it all, no respect for the citizens he is supposedly protecting, and one more attack on them as he exits.

    Unfortunately there is a lot more exactly like him, sworn to protect seems to mean, sworn to protect their own personal interest and state agenda even when it means ignoring civil rights. I hope his toilet plugs up regularly for ever, after all he is full of shit.

    Former NJ fuzz, right, isn’t that state very belligerent towards citizens there in general, more so than most?

    @Phuquehed; that’s what I like about you, you get down to the nitty gritty quick, Respects man….

  6. Drifter Says:

    @Paladin; will this have any bearing on his NJ retirement package?

    Thanks for all the top flight info you provide, tip of the brain bucket to ya….

  7. Paladin Says:


    Because Finn’s style of policing is SOP in NJ, Finn had managed to retire without stepping on his crank. So, I think his NJ retirement won’t be jeopardized by his Boulder City blunders.

    Unfortunately, Finn didn’t (and still doesn’t) understand that what “goes” in NJ doesn’t necessarily “go” anywhere else in the Country. Boulder City is a good example of that.

    Psychologically, I think Finn is out where the buses don’t run and is also in a constant state of denial. Because of this, I preceive Finn to have the potential to be a very dangerous individual. I don’t think Finn fully appreciates the amount of trouble that may be coming his way..

    Long May You Ride (to those that deserve to),

    It’s good news when the system works for the people, not those in charge. Finn thought he was too big to fall. What’s next for him, rent-a-cop at a local mall?

    “Would you like fries with that?” would be nice but prison systems are known for hiring disgraced former cops.

    I thought I felt the Earth stop spinning there for a second.

  11. springerman Says:

    EEOC complaint is another attempt to leverage his job back and or get a big fucking payday!

  12. Drifter Says:

    @Paladin, Merci beaucoup…

  13. Opie Taylor Says:

    My question to Finn is this: If the Mormons hate Catholics so bad, why did they hire you as an Irish Catholic in the first place? Why didn’t they save themselves the trouble and hire a Mormon chief of police?
    Once the Attorney General’s office concludes their investigation, I feel all of this non-sense will not matter to BC. If charged, Finn will be pre-occupied getting out of that mess and negotiating a deal to stay out of jail. As far as his NJ pension, you are right, it cannot be touched.
    As far as breaking policy or laws, is the rumor about Finn getting stopped in Henderson, NV for drunk driving true? I heard he was stopped by police in Henderson, but fled from the officer who pulled him over. Rumor has it that he later received a phone call at home from the Nevada State Police telling him that they don’t care who he is, and if it happens again, he will be taken away in cuffs.
    Perhaps someone could look into that by calling the Nevada State Police. I heard that Henderson PD does not recall the incident, but I am willing to bet the State Police does.
    Wouldn’t that be a violation of the law, a policy violation or a chargeable offense? Just asking……..

  14. Paladin Says:

    Opie Taylor,

    In CA, evading a peace officer is a misdemeanor offense, chargable under VC Section 2800.1.

    If you evade a peace officer with a “willful or wanton disregard for the safety of others”, you can be charged with a felony, which is covered under VC Sestion 2800.2.

    Hey Opie Taylor

    Do your buddies there on Aging Rebel know you’re a former cop who was investigated by IAB in 2002 per Chief Finn in East Brunswick? You are holding a grudge eleven years later and can’t accept the fact that you were a PFL who was found naked in your ex-girlfriend’s apartment (she then filed a restraining order against you), had firearm violations and were just basically a screw-up. It’s sad and pathetic and now you’re a PI in south Jersey? I wouldn’t hire you to find a lost dog.

  16. Paladin Says:

    Hey Trina Amadon,

    Since you know all of this person’s monikers, it would appear that you’re an ardent “fan”. Because your post has absolutely nothing to do with Rebel’s article or the content of this thread, it would seem that you’re the one that’s holding a grudge and possibly internet stalking.

    What’s the matter Trina? Did you bounce one too many times, when kicked to the curb? Because you’re so egar to post about this person’s laundry, I wonder, “what’s in your wallet?”

    Long May You Ride (to those that deserve to)


  17. Trina Amadon Says:

    Hey Paladin,

    My comment has everything to do with the article and thread. If you allow posters to dish their trash against Chief Finn, they have to be able to take it too. I am simply offering an explanation of why a former NJ cop, would have such an interest in what goes on in Boulder City. He was a PFL and still blames Chief Finn for his problems in East Brunswick. These problems are documented by a 2002 Internal Affairs investigation and a matter of public record.

  18. Paladin Says:

    Hey Trina Amadon,

    There are a great number of people that have a lot of interest in what’s been going on in Boulder City, and I’d be willing to bet good cash money that a vast majority of them aren’t former NJ cops.

    I’m of the opinion that a Internal Affairs investigation, conducted by a police department, headed by Ex-Chief Finn, has about the same amount of credibility as former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s inquiry into the ATF’s Fast and Furious operation.

    Long May You Ride (to those that desewrve to),


  19. Trina Amadon Says:

    Looks like your aging rebels’ wish for jail time for Chief Finn won’t be granted. What will Stubbs do for you now?

  20. Trina Amadon Says:

    You disagree with my comment so you delete it. You have confirmed my assumption that you’re all a bunch of cowards.

  21. Bill Says:

    Trina Amadon: Why do you keep calling him “Chief” Finn?

  22. BigV Says:

    Dear Ms./Mr. Ignorant Cunt aka Finn Sockpuppet aka Trina Amadon:

    If you had ever bothered to learn to read you might have realized that comments are moderated and approved. Nothing was deleted, Rebel just has sock puppet prevention measures in place.

    Seems to be a running theme, Finn can’t read the law he enforces, and breaks it.

    Family thing ? Lotsa neat shit turns out to be genetic. Then there is nurture as opposed to nature. Looks like in your case the cowshit didn’t flop too far from the bull’s ass.

    No one expected the shits in Boulder City to do the right thing- look at the trash they hired in the first place. For anyone who isn’t blind, ignorant, morally corrupt, or just a cop licker- you can see Finn violated enough laws to get shitcanned.

    It would actually take a backbone for the DA to charge him. When you hire shit like Finn in the first place, you don’t have a backbone, so you can’t expect their other hires and appointees to have one either, so that rules out the DA doing the right thing.

    Chances are the laws that were broken with Stubbs and the Mongols aren’t the only laws that were broken by Finn and usually you have accomplices or people who are complicit. So who would that include ? Oh shit, don’t cops work with District Attorneys ? Huh, so maybe it’d be a good idea to let Finn leave town without charging him so that he doesn’t dime on the DA’s Office ? Makes sense to me.

    Now, I know there are lot of words up there longer than 3 letters, so I don’t expect you to follow it, but take this away:

    That smell you’ve lived with all your life ? That stripe that runs down your back ? You were born that way and you’ll die with it, and nothing you can do will ever change where you come from, what you’ve done, and what you are.

    Enjoy licking the cops. Everybody has to have a hobby, I guess…

  23. Phuquehed Says:

    @Trina – STFU you idiot. You came on here and inanely babbled about nothing and expected everyone to understand your idiocy and ramblings?

  24. Matt Says:

    Quit your oinking piggy.

  25. bones Says:

    i love it when cops post on here pretending not to be cops,while through there comments ak-gnaw-le-ging,that they are cops,they don’t think they sound like cops,faggots,(no offense to ciggarettes or homos)
    come on coppers, keep posting,your funny,your so mad
    we win

  26. Not Surprised Says:


    You say “found naked in your girlfriend’s apartment” like it is a bad thing……..

  27. Rebel Says:

    Dear Trina Amadon,

    I have no idea what you are talking about. You double posted a comment, requested the duplicate’s deletion, and I did. Since you are new, I will explain it you. You can say just about anything you want to say here within obvious limits. Don’t start a war. Don’t pick on somebody’s women and children.

    Please repost whatever you think it is you think I wouldn’t let you say because I am a coward. By the way, you are a five dollar whore. Okay?


  28. Trina Amadon Says:

    No one likes to be wrong and when a decision doesn’t go your way, you tend to attribute it to complicity with others. I get that, but your vile and crude language just shows how limited your vocabulary actually is. It’s been fun ladies!

  29. Paladin Says:

    I know this is slightly off topic, but I was wondering if someone would be so kind to direct me to the area in Walmart that had the five dollar whores? I’m not sure, but I was thinking they might be in the “tool” section?

    Long May You Ride (to those that deserve to),


  30. slycechyx Says:

    Trina comes onto a web page for news about the biker world & is meant for adults, yet bitches about the “vile & crude” language.

    What the fuck did she expect? This isn’t fucking sesame Street. One thing I learned along time ago, if you can’t hang with the big dogs, get the fuck out.

  31. WARTHOG Says:


    If you can’t find the five dollar whore section in tools check the pet department’s bitches in heat isle.



    STP STF STW (I didn’t want to be vile and crude with all the Fs)

  32. Paladin Says:


    Thanks for the that. However, I actually found them in the appliance section. They’re marketed by Waste King.

    Long May You Ride (to those that deserve to),


  33. Phuquehed Says:

    @Trina – So, you were wrong and now you’re bitching like a cunt. Those who say cussing and being rude is a ‘bad’ thing, are too stuck-up and hung on themselves and what ‘the man’ says they should think that they should simply kill themselves since self-thought is too hard on their nerves. Take that hint, Trina, you dumb cunt.

  34. Grumbler Says:

    @Trina Amadon – Readers of this page now know what a beef-witted, unrighteous, whining shit heel you really are.

    I have seen mold spores with more personal character than you. The utter vacuity of your social, moral, intellectual, and labia capacities is without equal. You are emotionally bankrupt. I wish I had a blueprint for your brain; I’m trying to build an idiot.

    Your incessant misanthropy marks you apart from the rest of humanity. Go away. No one wants to read what you have to say. You are a waste of flesh, oxygen, and bandwidth. You remind me of opium, a slow working dope.

    You’re the best at all you do – and all you do is make people hate you.

  35. sherides Says:


    $5 whores at Walmart – We usually see them lurking around the fancy underwear racks. We know it’s them ’cause the Ol Man says he smells them from a mile away.

    PS. There’s a smart phne app/website called “People of Walmart”.
    There’s some downright scary pictures on there.

  36. Stephen "Bowtie" Stubbs Says:


    Trina Amadon originally came into existence on Facebook. She has no Facebook friends and uses a picture of Obama as her profile picture.

    Interestingly, Ms Amadon seems to have a curious handle on all the inner workings of Finn’s legal arguments in court and information Finn has provided to local news agencies. How does Ms Amadon know so much about the inner workings of Finn’s positions?…I’d say Ms Amadon is really someone intimately involved with the case. She could be Finn’s attorney, Finn’s wife, Finn’s sister, or even Finn himself.

    One more thing, Trina Amadon, in a recent post on Boulder City Social (Facebook page) claims to be in the “witness protection program”…thought you might like to laugh as hard as I have.
