Meet Lake Stevens Proud Boy Mark Chakotay Valdez Jr
Valdez is #5 in the now infamous North Sound Proud Boys group picture that has been the subject of such controversy.
According to his public Facebook Mark has lived in Lake Stevens Washington since 2009 and lived in rural Idaho prior to that. Publicly available records indicate that hes still has family in both locations and pictures on the account show a spattering of both locations leading us to believe that communities in both states should be aware of the neo-fascist in their midst.
Reedy is #4 in the now infamous North Sound Proud Boys group picture that has been the subject of such controversy.
Reedy’s Public Facebook was surprisingly open for being at the tail end of this list of exposed Proud Boys so his brothers in the Proud Boys either didn’t warn him this was coming or hes is incredibly stupid. Either way we are able to learn a lot from this profile.
Perhaps most interesting of all is the fact that Reedy works at the Salvation Army in Everett Washington.
A simple search shows that Jeremy not only works at the Salvation Army he is a Captain and in charge of operations at the Everett Salvation Army location and co-manages the location with his wife. They are seen here in this Everett Herald article with the same picture posted to his public Facebook.
Reedy and his wife are responsible for the Everett Salvation Army stopping food service for un-housed community members. They appeared on KIRO-7 News publicly announcing the end of the program and showing indifference and cruelty that is all too common among Proud Boys members. Jeremy was quoted by KIRO-7…
“Andrea and Jeremy say they find needles in the bathroom and see drug deals in the dining room. There are also violent threats – they say recently, someone upset threatened to come back with a gun, and a volunteer broke up a drug deal in the back ally.
“We’re trying to do something for people, to show the love of God. And there’s a few that want to cause trouble,” Jeremy said.
Reedy and his wife were active at the Salvation Army drives as of this Christmas season so this information is confirmed valid as of the publication of this article. The Salvation army is notoriously conservative which begs the question do they know they have a neo-fascist hate group member working for them or do they just not care?
Alex has been identified as number 21 from the now infamous group pic taken at Razzals Bar in Lake Stevens Washington.
Dickson’s public Facebook shows His Proud Boy allegiance confirmed as far back as May of 2019. Alex expresses standard Proud Boy murder fantasies. He shows support for Augusto Pinochet the former president of Chile known for operating death squads and throwing political opposition from helicopters as well as advocating for death squads here in the United States.
Alex has his Facebook fairly locked down but his wife did not. Through her account we can see that Alex lives in Mountlake Terrace and attends A New Day Church in Lakewood. Do his fellow parishioners know that they’re having worship service with a member of a neo-fascist, misogynistic hate group?
Seattle Cop Aaron Johnson Attacks Elderly Protester
On January 5th the Washington 3% militia descended on Seattle’s City Park plaza for their annual gathering. During the counter protest officers violently attacked and arrested people including one particularly egregious incident where an officer charges the counter protest line that is obeying orders and attacked two people with a riot control baton. One of those people was an elderly woman who fell and was prevented from receiving assistance by the officer who attacked her . Video available here.
They forced her to attempt to rise on her own before they hoisted her by her backpack barely allowing her time to collect her scattered possessions before shoving her back towards the counter protest line. All the while bystanders told Johnson she was 70 years old and needed help yet he blocked them from accessing her with his baton and directed other cops to do so as well. This was a completely unnecessary escalation by Johnson and caused many of the issues that followed. Video available here.
Through eyewitness tips, video footage and publicly available records we have identified that officer as Aaron Phillip Johnson of the South Precinct Ops Team. This class traitors name and station precinct are clearly visible in the from by frame video. Online records show that the badge number, name and precinct all match. He resides in Federal Way Washington and has ties to Lakewood as well.
We have sourced publicly available data and found that Johnson is a former US Marine who has complained in public military forums that the 9mm M9 Beretta sidearm he was issued wasn’t powerful enough. His description of the damage he would like to see from a replacement sidearm platform is particularly violent.
It would seem that a desire to use force that is greater than necessary is innate to Johnson and so we now expose him for what he is. A violent fascist storm trooper with a penchant for violence who zealously attacks anyone the state orders him to. Since Seattle police are incapable of disciplining their own we submit this article for your assessment. Tell Seattle PD what you think about them employing a violent thug here.
Johnson, Aaron P (17-PD) Seattle Police Department 45801
Allen has been identified as number 20 from the now infamous group pic taken at Razzals Bar in Lake Stevens Washington.
Allen was spotted on June 28th in Renton Washington with Justin Lux,Daniel Lyons, Zac Staggs and Josh Hanks protesting a Pride month event. Members of Mass Resistance and Washington 3% Militia were in attendance as well. The Proud Boys screamed at children and attempted to instigate fights with the largely liberal crowd.
Allen is open about being a Proud Boy on his public Facebook posting pictures of himself at political events in Proud Boys gear. Her he wears the same hat as can be seen in the North Sound Chapter Group photo.
Lake Stevens Proud Boy Identified As Jeffrey Kohloff
Kohloff has been identified as number 18 from the now infamous group pic taken at Razzals Bar in Lake Stevens Washington.
Jeff was harder to find than some but his brother in the Proud Boys saw fit to tag him in posts for us. Here he is picture with chapter organizer Justin Lux.
Jeff’s social media accounts are stripped or locked down so he likely knew this was coming. Being friends with the chapter organizer has its benefits apparently as the other members have all been blind sided upon being exposed and their social media accounts were wide open. The Lake Stevens Proud Boys have been extremely vocal in their support for Mayor elect Brett Gailey and most of them made comments on public forums leading up to his election. Jeff was no exception and can be seen here cheer leading Gailey along with chapter organizer Justin Lux.
Lake Stevens Proud Boy Identified as Joshua Reville
Reville has been identified as number 23 from the now infamous group pic taken at Razzals Bar in Lake Stevens Washington.
On his public Facebook Reville confirmed that the group pic was indeed the North Sound Proud Boys official meeting.
Reville replied to our article exposing Proud Boy Brandon Howe on Twitter stating “I’m number 24”. It’s unclear if Reville cannot count or was trying to be humorous.
Like most Proud Boys Reville is a rabid Trump supporter. This is evident from his public Twitter account where he posts ultra-right wing views and memes.
Reville also posts considerable amounts of Confederate apologia and neo-confederate propaganda. He posted a pic to Facebook showing the Confederate battle flag belt buckle he’s wearing in the North Sound Proud Boys group photo.
On Facebook he alleges that he is currently unhoused and has a GoFundMe for medical care for his dog. There is no evidence his “brothers” in the Proud Boys have attempted to help him nor have they shared his GoFundMe on any of their social media accounts or donated to it.
The business he is referring to was a lawn care service called “All About Lawns”. In the April 22, 2015 issue of the Sequim Gazette Reville advertised his lawn services along with his phone number and email address. We can confirm this business in indeed defunct.
Lake Stevens Proud Boy Identified as Brandon Audell Howe
Howe has been identified as number 3 from the now infamous group pic taken at Razzals Bar in Lake Stevens Washington. Wearing the Fred Perry polo is indicative of having achieved at least the 2nd degree or rank in the Proud Boys organiaztion.
Brandon’s public Facebook account shows he is friends with two previously exposed Proud Boys Eli Young and Justin Lux.
Brandon’s Facebook and LinkedIn show he is a self employed contractor but his license is suspended as of 2017. The license is registered at and address which records show was sold in June 2019. Pictures of his personal vehicle and license plates were also found.
Lake Stevens Proud Boy Identified as Cristopher Ocwieja
Ocwieja has been identified as number 1 from the now infamous group pic taken at Razzals Bar in Lake Stevens Washington.
On his public Facebook profile Owieja says he worked or works at Kimberly-Clark. His LinkedIn shows Chris Ocwieja resides in Granite Falls Washington and publicly available property records show his address.
Zac Staggs allegedly no longer a Proud Boy definitely still a fascist
Zachary Thomas Staggs has long been the primary organizer for the Proud Boys in Seattle but several months ago he all but disappeared. He has deleted all of his social media posts, pictures and Youtube videos related to his involvement with the Proud Boys however considerable evidence of his involvement with the group remains.
Zac has been filmed in the black and gold Fred Perry polo and PB laurels hat sported by Proud Boys attire several times. The Black and Gold Fred Perry is for members second rank and above only.
On August 4th Staggs, Josh Hanks and other Proud Boys spent hours harassing a “Border convergence event” with traveling speakers about the situation on the southern border. Afterwards they traveled to Occidental park where they attempted to enter Fuel bar frequented by the Emerald City Supporters. The soccer club had been vocally supportive of antifascism. After being denied entry they attacked Sounders fans leaving the game for wearing the Iron Front symbol used by antifascist groups. That incident was covered by Sounder at Heart and the Seattle Times.
Not content with political violence and marches alone Staggs and the Seattle Proud Boys lent muscle to “Referendum 88” the campaign to deny minorities legal protection against discrimination in Washington state. Assisting Staggs was outed Ballard neo-Nazi and distributor of Atomwaffen propaganda Sean Scott shown here to the right of Staggs.
Staggs has not been seen at an event since September 29th when Joey Gibson and the Proud Boys held and event in Seattle’s Westlake park. Proud Boy Kyle Tautfest was arrested for fighting after defending Staggs in a stunning display of cowardice by Staggs. Shortly after this incident rumors circulated online that Zac was no longer a member of the Proud Boys. This was the confirmed on social media by several active members. The incident was filmed by GOP governor candidate Anton Sakharov and posted to his Twitter account.
Staggs has a history of re-branding his social media and even group names to escape scrutiny for his racist antics. Blackout Media, Hard Facts, Correct The Record, @TheMAGAGuard, Patriots of Washington, RedPillSeattle, @GretaWatch and @TenebrisSanctus are all operated by or in in part by Zac Staggs. However there is one damning piece of evidence he will never be able to scrub away…. In order to advance to the 3rd “degree” or rank in the Proud Boys organization Zachary Staggs got a “Proud Boy” tattoo on his right bicep.
His current online persona is @TenebrisSanctus which is Latin for “Dark Saint” and his profile is obvious glorification of mass killers who fascist chan board and Telegram channels have labelled “Saints”. Dylan Roof, Brenton Tarrant and Timothy McVeigh are just a few of the mass killers revered by the fascist far-right and given the “saint” title. Staggs’s many allusions to a deeper fascist belief than the Proud Boys publicly espouse is of deep concern. His references to mass killers are equally troubling.
It is unknown if Staggs will be present at the January 5th rally being held by Washington 3% militia as the group has publicly denounced him and other members of the Proud Boys in the past. Though the Proud Boys and Washington 3% appear to have severed ties with him Staggs is and always will be a Proud Boy and a fascist.
