(updated 11/28/22) Why do I urge residents to intervene? These violent posts went UNREPORTED for months until recently. Resources for understanding and intervening are found in sections 2 and 9 of this post.
Kanab area veterans (Geoffrey Broadbent, Jeff Schwilk), business owners (Robert Brissette, Trenity Gibbs), public employees (Coby Boyd Glover, Hunter Cram) and retired law enforcement (Kym & Phil Cloughesy) all posted acts of murder on personal pages, local FB Group Kanab/Fredonia Rant & Rave or friends pages, publicly. This post exposes each of their extremist rhetoric and proper reporting (FB and/or LE-FBI).
“The amount of angry, hateful, unspeakable, combative, violent even, rhetoric on social media exceeds what anybody in their worst imagination (thinks) is out there,”FBI Director Wray Feb 2021

INTERVENTION. (2 of 9)
Because of the previous KURW posts Understanding Social Media in Kanab: Groups, Pages & Individuals and Kanab FB Page “Kanab Patriots” Recruits and Radicalizes Extremists, some readers have reported and submitted evidence. Glover’s post was reported and removed by FB earlier this year, Brissette’s and Broadbent’s posts removed earlier this week. Schwilk’s post removed just recently. Some have questioned if/when posts should be reported to law enforcement and FBI.
- Keep reporting all comments of rhetoric (false narratives, conspiracy theories, violence, bigotry) to FB or other social media platform.
- Call 911 if it is an immediate threat where someone is in danger call 911
- Report to FBI when it is a valid threat of violence or published plan of attack. See how here FBI Requests Help Identifying People in New Images from Capitol Insurrection. This comment by Geoffrey Broadbent “I can’t wait to kill [Pelosi]” elevates level from report to FB to report to law enforcement and FBI field office, just like the people present at the Capitol Insurrection, Crosby & Corson Kanab “Patriots” at the Capitol Insurrection and Local Law Enforcement Praise
- INTERVENE directly with individual if you are a friend or indirectly through their support circles (religious group, community group, employer). See the sections below for more evidence on each person, section 9 for the 3 Ds tool for understanding systemic racism, how some have attempted to intervene while some did nothing and how left without intervention the person spirals into more rhetoric or acts of violence as evidenced by
- Dave Crosby and Steve Corson Kanab “Patriots” at the Capitol Insurrection and Local Law Enforcement Praise

Intervention is prevention. Reforming Extremists on Hatewatch
THE PEOPLE: GEOFFREY BROADBENT Kanab, Utah. (3 of 9)
Reported and removed by FB 03/2021
“I can’t wait to kill [Pelosi]” comment to Vicki Huntington Hooper’s June 24, 2020 extremist rhetoric (false narrative) Pelosi/mask/protest meme. Joyce Clark attempted to intervene publicly, pointing out a pattern of violence which someone saw April 01, 2021, reported to FB and FBI and sent evidence to KURW. I compiled what I could find and present it below. FOR TEN MONTHS no one reported this comment for removal. I am unaware if anyone reported his activity privately, which is appreciated if anyone did. Let’s catch this stuff earlier, report immediately and intervene.
You’ll need his FB profile https://www.facebook.com/geoffrey.broadbent.9 to report to FBI and feel free to cite this page or use images from this page. His legal name appears to be Brian G Broadbent. He has gone by Geoff Broadbent before.
I’ll present his public posts in four categories:
- personal tragedies shared publicly
- posts which should have triggered some alarm bells
- posts before this FBI level post of June 4 2020
- posts after June 4 2020 through Nov 4, 2020
- posts after election through April 01, 2021
Personal tragedies, Broadbent (1 of 5)
I certainly don’t present these to exploit anyone’s pain, but in an effort to learn what to look for and how to intervene with our neighbors in pain to prevent lashing out and lessen suffering. Broadbent’s public posts reveal three tragedies: Jan 2019, April 2019 and August 2020.
Alarming Posts, Broadbent. (2 of 5)
These are posts which did raise alarm expressed by some of his FB friends and are the indicators for more support, intervention and or reporting to community groups/law enforcement for additional support. These posts include: end of times, fear/betrayal, lashing out at family, and incoherency. Notice who supports these posts (they may not yet be on Hatewatch by KURW ) and who tries to intervene.
Posts by Broadbent leading up to June 4, 2020 FBI level post: (3 of 5)
These include only public posts on Broadbent’s personal page or on Hooper’s public posts and include only those with extremist rhetoric or bigotry. Notice who encourages extremism (not all are on Hatewatch by KURW, yet) and who attempts to intervene or counter extremist rhetoric. This includes false narratives on immigration, reproductive rights, 2A, Covid, slavery and civil rights protests. Bigotry toward democrats, media, politicians and immigrants. Fear of losing what is theirs and betrayed by government.
Posts by Broadbent following June 4, 2020 through Nov 4, 2020. (4 of 5)
posts amplify in anger (fuck you, go to hell, brainwashed, wipe out evil people), Islamaphobia, Traitors, conspiracy theories (Covid, Media, Soros, Gates, Election Fraud, Government takeover, wildfire lasers), false narratives (Biden, Statue of Liberty, JFK, CCP/Nazi, Law Enforcement Support, Ballot security, Pandemic Restrictions, Clinton, Fonda), bigotry (Islam, Democrats, Biden Voters) and savior status of Trump. Notice the people who encourage, who try to intervene, the groups/organizations and individuals of shared posts (PatriotPost, Americans Against Romney, etc), and the fact check status on some reported posts.
Posts by Broadbent following election, Nov 4, 2020 – April 1, 2021: (5 of 5)
THE PEOPLE: JEFF SCHWILK, Kanab, Utah. (4 of 9)
Reported and removed by FB 04/2021
Extensive evidence of Schwilk’s extremism is in this post Kanab Veterans Engage in Extremism, Reflecting National Trend and is listed in interactive Google Slides below
THE PEOPLE: Coby Boyd Glover. Kanab, Utah (5 of 9)
Reported and removed by FB 01/2021
Glover’s graphic violent post remained for four months before it was reported and removed. Some residents responded in support of it (Russ Whitaker, Danny Glover, Jon Anderson and Crystal Mognett, see evidence in slides below). In addition to violence, Glover’s social media interaction reveal: Transphobia, false narratives school indoctrination, member of Kanab FB Page “Kanab Patriots” Recruits and Radicalizes Extremists, racism, false narratives Black Lives Matter, move back/just leave, support online harassment of others with opposing views, conspiracy theories of government and pandemic, blame blacks for slavery, and denying systemic racism
THE PEOPLE: Robert Brissette, Kanab UT and Trenity Gibbs, Fredonia, AZ. (6 of 9)
Reported & removed by FB 03/2021
Updated post with 2021 arrest & death click—-Brissette 2021: Arrested. Violent Threats, AGAIN.
Brissette posted this back-hoe murder two weeks before harassing & covid-coughing on Black Lives Matter demonstrators in Kanab (see post link in red above). Brissette is also a member of local FB extremist page Kanab Patriots which has defended his actions and misreported his case. In 2021 he threatened mass shooting because of liberals in Kanab and was arrested then was killed following an altercation in October 2021.
THE PEOPLE: Hunter Cram Kanab, Utah (7 of 9)
Hunter & partner Celeste Breanne Cram are both employed by Kanab City & both engage in bigotry on line as well as their parents: Tom Cram and Crystal Mognett, respectively, and brothers & sister-in-laws: Landon & Tiffany Cram and Colton & Alicia Brianne Cram. Hunter is also featured in the post Kanab Kanasshole Disgust. Hunter supports local FB extremist page “Kanab Patriots” Recruits and Radicalizes Facebook Extremists.

THE PEOPLE: Kym & Phil Cloughesy Prescott, AZ. (8 of 9)
Kym and Phil retired from Long Beach Law Enforcement and spent a few years in Kanab before moving to Prescott, AZ in November 2020. They moved to Kanab for Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and Kym resigned over Best Friends supportive policy of the Black Lives Matter movement, community involvement and racial equity training.
Their posts of violence include: Killing George Soros and son Alex, stacking bodies of democrats on public lands, and glorifying physical assault. The breadth and depth of their extremism and bigotry justify their classification as Red Level Hatewatch Neighbors.

A tool for understanding & explaining systemic racism : 3 Ds and the 3 Ss (9 of 9)
The categories which people fall in regards to recognizing SYSTEMIC RACISM and WHITE PRIVILEGE are the 3 Ds: Deny—-Distance—-Dismantle. https://www.apa.org/research/action/speaking-of-psychology/white-privilege
The stages of systemic racism in the USA are the 3 Ss: Slavery—Segregation—Slammer (resource: Michelle Galaria).
- Chattel Slavery was dismantled nearly 200 years ago but some people are still in the Distance category today.
- Segregation was dismantled just over 50 years ago, however, there still exists nationwide inequalities in income, housing, healthcare, education, voting, infrastructure and access because of the systems put in place & still operating and the personal affects on the victims of living through Jim Crowe America and the affects on their offspring. Many in Kanab deny the relevance of segregation for today, deny systemic racism or distance themselves by blaming the victim (didn’t work hard enough). Most Americans are working today to dismantle the lingering, systemic effects of segregation.
- The Slammer, mass incarceration, is today’s segregation and slavery combined, disproportionately impacting minorities. The lengths some people will go to deny this by dehumanizing and/or blaming victims of police brutality or poor socioeconomic status and fighting social justice & police brutality reform became clear in 2020-2021. The global movement to dismantle the causes leading to the Slammer and failures of support afterward revealed that most Americans and most of the World are now dismantling !
