Concord City Attorney Mark Coon has passed away,

Image Notes: Pete Bennett began tracking incidents in Walnut Creek and surrounding cities many years ago.  In part due to the millions lost in Contra Costa Superior Court where Bennett losses can be directly tied to the murders of witnesses, defendants and in some cases Police Officers.

This location of Walnut Creek contains other stories untold, hidden or concealed by Walnut Creek Police, City Council and Employees of the Walnut Creek. 

Few know that the Walnut Creek Police Department is quietly removing officers via a unknown California Department of Justice investigation.  One officer was Greg Thompson who I encountered many times over many decades decided to take out a black woman in Richmond CA.

I am sure his time in jail was served with Coffee and Donuts.   

Concord City Attorney Mark Coon has passed away, according to an email sent to all city staff by Concord City Manager Valerie Barone.

Details of his death are not known at this time, but we’re hearing he died earlier this morning in Walnut Creek.

The City of Concord has closed all city offices, and tonight’s council meeting has been canceled.
Grief counselors have also been brought in for any city employee wishing to talk, according to the email.
