Steven Brooks Arrest: Nevada Lawmaker Jailed for Threatening to Shoot Colleague

Inquisitr, January 21, 2013

A Nevada lawmaker was arrested this weekend after he allegedly threatened to shoot the Speaker-elect of the Nevada state legislature, Marilyn Kirkpatrick.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, assemblyman Steven Brooks was arrested Saturday evening with a loaded gun on him after threatening his Democratic colleague earlier in the day.

The LVRJ writes:

“Brooks had been telling people Kirkpatrick’s ‘first day as speaker would be her last.’”

The Las Vegas Sun reports that Brooks threatened to shoot her because he was unhappy with the Nevada Legislature committee assignments Kirkpatrick gave to him.

During the course of the preliminary investigation, officers received corroborating witness statements supporting the victim’s report and began a search for Brooks.

At about 5:30 pm, Brooks, 40, was spotted driving in his hometown where he was taken into custody without incident during a traffic stop.

He was charged with a felony—intimidating a public officer with physical force—and bail was set at $100,000, the city jail’s website reveals.

    If Obama had a baby brother…

    • HamletsGhost

      Well, North Las Vegas is sometimes referred to as a “baby Compton”. It’s the ‘hood part of Vegas.

        If it was legal for these people to vote for a felon who is serving time, they would. It matters not to them that they are absentee representatives who have anything but their consituents’ best interests in mind, see JJ’s son in Chicago who would win if it was discovered he tortured puppies.

    If I were to google image Obama-lover, I might get several results that look like this woman.

    • Xerxes22

      Not all Democrats are Obama lovers, just as as not all Republicans are George W. Bush lovers.

      • SintiriNikos

        I’m just saying she looks like one, although I concede looks can be deceiving. Btw, I disagree. Pretty sure all Repugs revere GHWB and all their other pets. Unless you meant not all conservatives which is not synonymous to Repug by any stretch.

      • Bill

        They (Dems) may not all love Obama, but they all voted for him. The middle class dems did so because the unions told them to. After all, we all know the unions have the middle class interests at heart, right? (sarcasm – can ANYBODY truly say unions care about the middle class any more? They are now government creatures hand in glove)

        • Xerxes22

          A lot of Unions do have the interests of the middle class at heart. The problem is that too many top union officials also hold positions in the Democratic party which creates a conflict of interest. No man can serve two masters. These leaders support affirmative action, anmesty, open borders and a lot of other things that the rank and file oppose. They are aided in this by the open contempt that many Republican party leaders show towards the American worker. Neither party serves our interest but the Democrats at least pretend to care about working class Americans.

    No matter how high up in society they are, the savage instinct of all blacks and hispanics usually kicks in after a while.

      Blacks and Hispanics are closer in number of generations to a paleolithic way of life.
      During the paleolithic era warfare was more common and more lethal than
      it has been under civilization. The best hunters and warriors had the
      most wives, so they had the largest numbers of sons who inherited their
      violent propensities.

      Over a period of centuries and millennia criminal justice systems of civilized nations remove the more aggressive males from the gene pool. That is why whites and Orientals have lower rates of violent crime.

    This was how it came to be found that Obama was qualified for higher office while a state Sen. “He didn’t scream at people and wave a gun around? That boys going places!”

  • HadEnough

    And one thing we can be certain of: this will have zero impact on his reelection prospects.

  • IKantunderstand

    This country is going to be so awesome, when people of color are the majority! The vibrancy! The death threats! The intimidation! Just imagine it! The Sikhs grappling with Dearborn Muslims! The Blacks jockeying for position against the Mexicans! The Asians trying to figure out if there is any technology left worth stealing! But, think of the food! And, the melodious voices in a cacophony of non-English! Slaying animals on the front lawns of America! Pooping wherever you want! Disfiguring women! Oh, and imagine the strides in science and math and the advantages that will accrue to America in global markets! (Diversity is better for this, because, um, can I get back to you?)

    • bigone4u

      Great satire because it’s true.

    • Cochise

      Let’s leave the East Asians out of it. The “born here” generation of Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Vietnamese, with very rare exceptions, are totally integrated into the society. THey prefer beef and chicken over cats and dogs. You don’t see gangs of ” youths” of the above mentioned roaming the streets attacking Caucasians. I taught for almost five decades and never once had a problem with any of the above whom I had as students.
      Let’s focus our attention on the REAL enemies of society who murder, rape and assault with as much regularity as “Old Faithful” many of whom adhere to Islam because it satisfies their permanent juvenile desire to play “dress up” and gives them Divine license to abuse women. Then there are the Paks who appear to have a natural inclination, after raping them, to turn young girls into drug addicted prostitutes. Ask any Brit.
      Keep you ” sight picture” on the right target. BTW that was just a figure of speech. I’m not advocating anything; at least not yet.

      • Pelayo

        I’d wager that the “REAL” enemies to whom you referred really don’t read the Koran unless it has lots of pictures.

      • SmithandSmith

        The real threat and the real enemy is non-whites. All of them. There is no good reason for any non-white to live among White People.

        As it stands, there are too many Towns that have been ruined by asians and the other non-whites and contrary to popular belief, asians are very corrupt and very violent. Asian gangs exist and so does sex slavery. Asians do the exact same things all the other non-whites do.

        Also, including non-whites (asians too) is an Act of White Genocide. Only White People can procure our Future and no one else. Look, you just can’t add any color other than White if you’re looking for a White Outcome.

        • Cochise

          I’m not particularly looking for a “White Outcome” but rather a non- Black outcome. Asians tend to be clannish and generally marry within their race.
          Genocide has nothing to do with intermarriage. “Cide” means killing. There will always be some racial coupling between Caucasians and East Asians. The Asians who are into sex trafficking are generally from Central or Western Asia. and of course Blacks.

          • SmithandSmith

            I’m not interested in your semantics. I’m only interested in making sure my people aren’t eaten out of house and home by your people aka White Genocide. You not being interested in a White Outcome tells me all I need to know about you. You are the enemy.

            Last, you are either sickeningly naive or you’re a liar. asians, ALL OF THEM are very much involved in sex slavery, violence and fraud of all kinds. And the only thing asians are interested in is taking over every last square inch of everything White People built and of course, taking credit for everything White People created, invented and built too.

        as a 40-YEAR resident of Los(T) Angeles??
        latinos are definitely NOT “our friends”.

      I came out of the Wal-Mart and there was a Caribbean woman squatting down near my truck tire. I thought she was trying to steal my rims or something till I saw her defecate right there….

      • nexus

        should have kicked her in the face like Janikowsky kicks field goals.

      • PesachPatriot

        I’m guessing you live in florida too. I also have a feeling the caribbean woman spoke creole and not spanish. Hispanics may have issues, but most are pretty good at learning how to use indoor bathroom facilities.

      • Joseph

        Same in Houston -except substitute “Mexican”. The wonderful sights and smells of diversity.

  • bigone4u

    What was he before he became a politician? I’ll bet either a lawyer or a “community organizer” just like his hero Obama. His defense? She be racissss, so I wants to offzzz her. The jury? All black, delivers the verdict that “He be innocent just like Brother OJ.”

  • Michael_C_Scott

    As Tuco Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Ramriez once said, “When you have to shoot, shoot. Don’t talk.”

    • Pelayo


      Eli Wallach was great! Do you remember his portrayal of the leader of the Bandidos in The Magnificent Seven? His monolog on society (of that time) was priceless.

      • Tim

        I watched the movie over three hundred times and could pretty much recite the dialog from beginning to end. My buddy wanted to do a Country Western bar remake where they have to fight off bikers…

  • Pelayo

    If this Mau Mau beats a jail sentence and there is a high degree of probability that he might, he may still carry out his threat. Ms. Kirkpatrick would have been wiser had she shot him preemptively.

  • nexus

    represents north Vegas.. other wise known as “da ghetto”… how unsurprising.

  • Michael_C_Scott

    I’ll bet that being unhappy about his committee assignments is the least of this dope’s problems now. Starting at the bottom is normal in any bureaucratic organization, and this is true of newly-elected officials. Someone willing to take his lumps and stick it out in a bureaucracy will move up the chain.

    Of course, this sort of thinking requires the ability to delay gratification, and… oh… never mind. My bad.

  • LMAO steppin on da big white people’s toes LOVE IT again LOL
