On 5.17.2017 while incarcerated in the Teller County Colorado Jail in Divide Colorado I was awoke at 0500hrs to be taken to court in Cripple Creek Colorado. By 0632hrs I was placed in full restraints (belly chains, cuffed in front, leg irons) and by 0722hrs I was stuffed into the back of a Ford Excursion with another pre-trial inmate, unseat belted and as we drove on the icy, snowy road, to the court house in Cripple Creek Colorado, on a road marked 40 mph, during a snow storm, the male officer was driving over 60 mph while passing the snow plow and sliding on the road. The other inmate and I were then placed into a small steel holding cell with steel seats, a concrete floor, no water, no toilet, locked in, kept in full belly chains, cuffs, leg irons and no heat. We were forced to remain in the cell all day, with a sack lunch, locked in the cell, feet and hands swelling, body waste being expelled into our jail uniforms. No one was in the basement to supervise us, take us to the restroom, unchain a hand to allow us to clean ourselves and then return us to our cells. We were locked in the cell, restrained until 1742hrs, when we were placed back into the transport vehicle and driven back to the main jail at Divide Colorado, on snowy/icy roads at speeds over 60 mph, unseat belted, doors unlocked, in a 40-mph zone. Being a former prison official, attempting to survive in general population, the female officer put my life at risk by identifying me as such to staff and jail population inmates alike, putting my life at risk. Filing grievances upon my return to the jail, after being in restraints, locked in a cold cell, in an unheated basement for over twelve hours, I requested to see medical, place the officers under citizen’s arrest and be moved to protective custody. The grievances were not answered and I was left in general population wherein I had to respond to threats with potential violence in order to survive. Complaints have been filed with the ACLU and civil rights lawsuits are to follow.
Worse yet, the Teller County Colorado Jail does not have a written kite, grievance or lawsuit system for offenders. It is a “paperless jail” in which the Sheriff does not allow the inmates to have paper to keep notes, write, communicate, file legal letters, write to attorneys, and if they write to the ACLU, the letters are torn up and given back to them with a smirk. Call the jail and demand the civil rights be returned to the inmate. Call the ACLU and demand that they file lawsuits on behalf of all the inmates within the jail. If you live in Colorado, picket and protest along Highway 24 while calling the media and alerting them, so that you are protected against these monsters. Help the helpless.

On 5.16.2017 an unidentified Sergeant from the Woodland Park Colorado Police Department called my home at approximately 0932hrs and accused me of “Felony Mayhem” for allegedly threatening to kill my adult son from a marriage (step son). The Sergeant told me to turn myself in at the Teller County Colorado Jail in Divide Colorado. I asked the alleged Sergeant when this was alleged to have occurred. The chickenshit ticket writer stated that I did this the night before. When I asked him if I was such a “Felony Menace, why didn’t he send his officers out to arrest me the night I was alleged to have been a “Felony Menace” to the public. The donut munching chickenshit ticket writer demonstrated my alleged threat to the public and his commitment to protect and serve the people of Woodland Park Colorado by stating, “I was told you had the house booby trapped and you were sitting in the dark armed to the teeth waiting for us”.
I followed up by asking this bastion of manhood, “Who told you this bold lie?” and he stated, “Your accuser”. When I asked him, “During your investigation, did you check the accusers background and discover that he is seeking disability from Social Security based upon his mental health issues such as being bipolar, having anti-social personality disorder, narcissistic personality disorder, as well as two other significant violent mental health issues.” And the chickenshit ticket writer stated, “No”. When I followed up and asked if he was aware that this seriously self-identified mentally ill person had signed federal firearms forms (3) in the last six months stating he was not mentally ill, when he was, per him, and had been institutionalized by the state of Washington in the past three years, and was illegally owning guns, he stated, “No”, so I followed it up with, “So you haven’t investigated shit?” He replied, “Be at the jail in an hour or we will come get you”.
Keep in mind, the night before, he was too frightened to come get me, when I was unaware of any of this, and not guilty of any of the “Felony Menacing” charges, but now that he had told me the lies and pissed me off, he suddenly went from chickenshit ticket writer to super hero. Bravery, intelligence and boldness, nowhere to be seen in this piece of pork.

Dear LA-Z-BOY Furniture Galleries (Select Galleries) Jim Hendren:
This is a demand for ethical treatment of Daniel Wade Thompson, for a litany of damages done to him by LA-Z-BOY Furniture Galleries (Select Galleries), Jim Hendren, his direct reports, their subordinates et. Al.
Your signed LA-Z-BOY Furniture Galleries of Colorado Springs Employee Handbook states that you and your employees “agree to”:
“…use creative measures to get the desired outcome” (Sentence reads: I am will to use creative measure to get the desired outcome).
“We operate the store in a way that makes money. The store is the boss.”
The implication here is clear, you and your staff will lie, cheat and steal to make money. This was made clear in the following instances regarding myself, Daniel Wade Thompson. Listed below are just a sample of the matters that allowed me to arrive at this conclussion:
Violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA): Forcing Mr. Thompson and other employees in my class to clock in early and go without lunch. The Warehouse Supervisor Mike Lockhart is known for stating, “Being on time is late. You will clock in no earlier than five minutes before your scheduled shift or you are late and you will cost all of your co-workers their bonuses”.
HIPPA Violations: Supervisor Mike Lockhart telling Daniel W. Thompson not to file a Labor & Industries report for an on the job injury to avoid a claim, a potential lawsuit and higher premiums. Mr. Lockhart telling Daniel Thompson’s co-workers that Daniel is bipolar, has extreme anger issues and his personal medical information. Due to Mr. Daniel W. Thompson’s Polymorphous Light Eruption, a sun allergy, which is actually a disease, Mr. Lockhart repeatedly called Mr. Thompson a “Vampire” in the presence of co-workers and others in the employment of LA-Z-BOY Furniture Galleries of Colorado Springs, as well as referring to Mr. Thompson and another employee (Ben Young) as the “Angry Team” due to the violation of both Mr. Young and Mr. Thompson’s rights.
Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA): Mr. Mike Lockhart, acting as an agent of LA-Z-BOY Furniture Galleries, Jim Hendren and LA-Z-BOY Corporate Franchising repeatedly violated ADA and HIPPA by publicly humiliating, Mr. Thompson, by referring to him as a “Whiny little bitch” in team meetings, in the warehouse and whenever in the presence of other employees. During the course of the Department of Labor and Industries investigating the injury to Mr. Thompson, Mike Lockhart had the other employees refuse to return calls to the investigator under threat of retaliation.
It should be noted that retaliation was taken against Mr. Thompson for being honest regarding the Bose Speaker Wire issue despite the Employee Handbook (a semi-literate item that will make a great evidentiary piece and nice item for the Colorado Springs Gazette). It should also be noted that the “alleged handbook” refers to the EEO and to the Human Resources Department, neither of which exist at LA-Z-BOY Furniture Galleries, something the corporate folks will take interest in. How long has Mike Lockhart engaged in nepotism, supervising his wife? It appears that there are many personal and personnel issues at this location that can and should only be corrected via lawsuits, settlements and government agency interrogatories.
Mr. Thompsons evaluations scored significantly higher than the marks given. When Mr. Thompson asked Mike Lockhart about this difference and the opportunity to speak with Mr. Hendren, Mr. Lockhart replied, “This is my warehouse and I run it how I want”. It appears that Mr. Lockhart has undue influence on day to day operations. The question remains, why?
LA-Z-BOY Furniture Galleries appears to be operating outside the LA-Z-BOY Corporate Franchisee Operational Guidelines and outside the ethical boundaries of LA-Z-BOY Corporate, but well within the local guidelines of Jim Hendren, corrupt owner of Showcase Galleries, driven by profit, not people
