Of Hitler and Humboldt…

A Louisiana man nicknamed “Hitler” and his wife have been indicted by a federal grand jury in a case involving possibly hundreds of pounds of marijuana from Humboldt County and murders in two states. Marcus Etienne and his wife Elizabeth Gobert and others are being held on charges of redistributing hydroponic marijuana from here through the Bay Area to Louisiana.

Press release from the Department of Justice:

On August 3, 2017, a federal grand jury in San Francisco returned a superseding indictment charging Marcus Etienne, a.k.a. Hitler, Elizabeth Gobert, Craig Marshall, and Mario Robinson, with racketeering, murder, and conspiracy, announced United States Attorney Brian J. Stretch and Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Charge John F. Bennett. The indictment was unsealed today.

The charges stemmed from the defendants’ running of a multi-state marijuana trafficking organization and the murder of Trince Thibodeaux on March 22, 2016, at 90th Avenue and International Boulevard in Oakland, California.

The superseding indictment alleges that Etienne, of Opelousas, Louisiana, ran an enterprise of more than five members who conducted a continuing and extensive narcotics conspiracy and criminal organization that distributed marijuana from California to Louisiana and Texas. In connection with that enterprise and conspiracy, Etienne, Marshall, of Houston, Texas, and Robinson, of Oakland, California, acted in concert to murder Thibodeaux on March 22, 2016, in Oakland. A grand jury had previously charged Etienne and Gobert, Etienne’s wife, also of Opelousas, with conspiracy to distribute marijuana on February 16, 2017. Etienne was detained by the Court and Gobert was released on bail. The Superseding Indictment unsealed today charges Etienne and Gobert with conspiring to murder defendant Robinson during May of 2017, while Gobert was on release pending further proceedings on the first indictment.

The defendants are charged in the superseding indictment as follows:

21 U.S.C. §§ 846, 841(a)(1) and (b)(1)(B) – Conspiracy to Distribute and Possess with
Intent to Distribute Marijuana;
21 U.S.C. § 848(e) – Murder in Connection with Continuing Criminal Enterprise;

Etienne remains in custody in Northern California based on the February 16, 2017, indictment. Robinson was arrested in Louisiana on August 4, 2017, and appeared on August 7, in federal court in the Western District of Louisiana. Marshall was arrested on August 7, 2017, in Houston, Texas, and appeared in federal court in the Southern District of Texas today. Gobert was re-arrested on Sunday August 6, and made her initial appearance on August 7, in federal court in the Western District of Louisianan. Robinson, Marshall, and Gobert are expected to be required to appear in the Northern District of California upon transfer from their current locations. The case is assigned to the Honorable William Alsup, United States District Judge, for the Northern District of California.

An indictment merely alleges that crimes have been committed, and the defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. If convicted, any sentence following conviction would be imposed by the court after consideration of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and the federal statute governing the imposition of a sentence, 18 U.S.C. § 3553.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney William Frentzen, paralegal specialist Jessica Meegan, legal assistant Bridget Kilkenny, all of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of California. The case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s San Francisco, New Orleans, and Houston Divisions, and the Oakland Police Department, with assistance from the St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, Sheriff’s Office, and the Opelousas, Louisiana Police Department.

  • Well. I have decided not to comment.

  • Holy shitballs, Batman!

  • So was this the ‘Hitler’ C.H.U.M.P was talking about in another thread?

  • And here I was thinking this was going to be an article about the homeless problem…

  • Sounds like a fun loving group of folks, black hitler and the crew. I sure they’re just misunderstood victims of addiction right?

  • This stuff can’t even be made up … just crazy … more fuel for CHUMP’s fire

    • Black Hitler. My new favorite super hero! I think.

      • groba dude osnt

        Did you watch “The Wire”? Hmmmm… Did the dealers actually kill EVERYONE?

        Improve Humboldt County. If you have to sell drugs, please have the class to sell to a nicer bunch of guys…

        Making some money is great. Getting shot over the whole thing – not so much…

        Hey, let’s move to OAKLAND!!

      • Think I’m gona get the tattoo.

      • Honeydew Bridge C.H.U.M.P.

        I want the T-shirt!

        Tattoos are for unwashed dope growers.

  • A black man nicknamed Hitler is rather ironic. Just ask the ghost of Jesse Owens the black USA Superman of the ’36 Berlin Olympics.

  • And, if you think SoHum folks have no class, try WILLITS! Whoa…

  • Excellent people. No racist comments and everything is PC. Remember, we cant hurt other peoples feelings by the obvious. That means if your not white n straight its gonna be bad. Lets all keep tickling each others behinds and turn your head to the blind side,keep calm and no one gets hurt.

    • So you admit your earlier comments were racist?

      • Im privileged n white. That automatically makes me racist……”they” can hate on me and its the new “cool”, if i speak of any color,im a racist. So ive learned to accept it kym. Its hard not to be racist when everybody else is calling u a racist because of your skin color. Ironic huh? Personally i like to think im not a racist but i am prejudice. Some prove me wrong,many dont. I will try my best to keep it PC here. Thank you for your reporting kym, like others say that i do….i dont watch fox news or any other sources,there all baised. So keep it coming! PS kym. Ill be changeing my post name to WhiteMail. Watch how many haters there will be with just the word “white”. I will keep it all PC on my end. Thanx

        • Yes that’s the message being programmed into our brains, but your not privileged and white, your privileged because your white, and yes without exception racist because you are white. i belive it makes the devide between races bigger and only permotes racism, but hey what do I know I’m just a white devil.

        • Oh, geez, I’m so tired of white people feeling sorry for themselves because they’re white and “discriminated” against. (I’m white.) It’s really hard to get used to not being the standard by which the rest of humanity is judged inferior, tough, tough, tough. Actually, it is tough — but so what? Let’s pull up our britches and get on with life.

    • “Never killed anyone, but I hurt someone’s feelings once…”

      Sorry Mr Hitler…

  • And this is why the SoHum green rush is just starting. We have almost the entire nation to supply. It’s going to be great.

  • Louisiana and Georgia Tate marijuana if you even get caught with a joint there you’re done. Welcome to Leavenworth.

  • You reap what you sow. They all deserve eternal fire for feeding the addictions of the weak and stupid.

    • Uh…and what about the murder? And the plot to kill their Oakland confederate? Those don’t count? Sheesh.

  • Veterans friend

    If cannabis was legal NONE OF THIS WOULD HAPPEN

    • BaHahahahah seriously? It would just be something else! But have fun in your dream world.

      • It is the prohibitionist who lives in a Reefer Madness dream world where losers reign.

        • You again, listen I’m no prohibitionist, I just live in the real world not the unicorn one. Do you really think if marijuana was legalized crime would just go away? That’s insane.

    • You were met by closed mindedness. These prohibitionists are like flies attracted to Kym’s fly paper website. They have to tread on you and me because they are the “fake news” crowd of little intelligence and a lot of snowflake fear.

    • Yes it would veterens friend! Its a drug. Dam. How many times do i need to say this. Oxycodin is legal. Vicaden is legal. Xanax is legal. Alcohol is legal(theres still moonshine being made!). All followed by illegal crime. Sorry. Your wrong

      • Buzzards nest… your spelling is terrible!!! veterens = Veteran’s, Oxycodin = Oxycontin, Vicaden = Vicodin, Your = You’re!!!! Use spellcheck & not auto correct, that screws up things a LOT!!!

      • Weed is legal under state law and we all know the writing is on the wall for re/descheduling it federally now; I’ll look forward to you fully supporting it once it does.

        • Honeydew Bridge C.H.U.M.P.

          No it’s not.

          The entire country of working people not on government handouts are against it.

          Granted it’s a state’s right issue, but you libs won’t talk about the last one of those that had nothing to do with declining slavery.

          How free are the slaves working a job with 25% withheld in taxes?

          Is that a full quarter of the year working for free on the plantation?

          You dope growers and addicts just seek an excuse for your addiction to become mainstream, so you don’t have to hide it.

          Normal, functioning people don’t go through life blasted out of their minds.

          Get help, you’re a drug addict-

          Accept it and don’t redirect….

          Own your addiction to get help.

          I’m going to start some type of remembrance festival on the very date the last dope grower leaves The Triangle.

          We’ll name it a victory day, like VE or VJ day…

          The Triangle will have a day of to remember the day The Marijuana Caliphate surrendered.

          That day is closer today than it was yesterday…

          We are so tired of your chicken coop muk.

          Go back to your slums……

          • The problem will get worse before it hopefully gets better, meth, heroin, and other drugs will be sold more often to try to fill the financial void, theft and robbery will be on the rise as people struggle to pay their bills. The slum is here to stay until ridiculous laws are changed.

          • “Here’s a little piece of hash. Go to the stove do some hot knives. Get stoned and get the fuck to work”

            “I can’t get stoned Ricky!”

            “What do you mean? It’s shitty work, everybody does that. Carpenters, electricians, dishwashers, floor cleaners, lawyers, doctors, fucking politicians, CBC employees, principals, people who paint the fucking lines on the fucking roads. Get stoned and it’ll be fun. Now get to work!”

        • This is Merica. They are not gonna be legalizing any “illegal” drugs any time soon. You think this God fearing country is gonna let that happen,your kidding yourself!

  • Dude was a total clown… didn’t get the Mustache right. Plus he’s got a French name… completely confused… But I’m sure the Aryans will recruit him once he gets inside. So he does have that going for him.

  • if he was booked in Humboldt co jail he would be out already .

  • Where is Chump, my evil minion, at?

  • Red-headed Loudmouth

    I am confused. If they are all being indicted, why do we just see a picture of him?
    We’re missing three other mug shots. Where’s Elizabeth and the crew? Aren’t they equally in trouble?
    Maybe he better fits the aesthetic for what the media wants us to see and fear? Hmphff.

    • Oh, please…If I could get their mugshots, they’d be there, too. His mugshot is there because I could find it. Theirs isn’t because I couldn’t find theirs in the short time I was willing to look. If you want to do some research, I’ll gladly post the others if you can find them.

    • You are definitely confused! Lol seriously

  • Where’s honeydew bridge chump , he must be out with the convoys cutting down . He’s law enforcement.

    • I don’t think he would pass the psychological evaluation, though some do slip through.

    • An excellent possibility!!! He’s Batshit Crazy enough to be Law Enforcement, for a fact!!!

      • Honeydew Bridge C.H.U.M.P.

        Can I give you a link to click, so I can get your IP, that would lead the chipper to your schwag that nobody wants making it my fault?

        • Run their nazi memorabilia through the chipper too! Arm bands Jack boots and all! Black hitler was a choir boy before he inhaled satans cilantro, he was on a plane in arcata and someone had their cilantro stowed in their carry on, he breathed in some fumes and by the time they landed in s.f. bam black hitler, true story.

  • This is why we build prisons!

  • HoneydewChumpDestroyer

    Humboldt cant handle the truth, yeah lets listen to some kmud and stick our heads back in the sand! Forget about the fact that black guy here turned into hitler and worse all fueled by humboldts finest….
