Parents of Teen Slain by Oklahoma “Authorities” Still Seeking Justice

Mah-hi-vist Goodblanket was experiencing what his parents liken an “episode.” His parents called 911, hoping the presence of police would help to deescalate the situation. Yet shortly after those with badges arrived, Mah-hi-vist was shot seven times, including once to the back of his head, by two Custer County Sheriff employees – Dillon Mach* and a still-unnamed second shooter.

*Dillon Mach had previously worked for Clinton police outfit and was about to be fired but did a lateral transfer to Custer County Sheriff before that happened. I wonder if he’s a ‘Brady Cop‘?

Present were also two Oklahoma Highway Patrol employees who work out of Troop H.

That incident happened in December, 2013. As described in the letter below, written by Mah-hi-vist’s parents Melissa and Wilbur, despite attempts to gain accountability through the injustice system in the months that have passed, it’s been nonexistent.

The shooters work out of the Custer County Sheriff’s Outfit – everyone there, including head honcho Bruce Peoples, have circled the wagons and done their best to protect their image, rather than be concerned about the fact that a couple of their own killed a teenager. That same criminal outfit recently took possession of a MRAP


As the Goodblankets and many others have unnecessarily experienced, and as Rob Hustle makes clear in his video Call the Cops, realize that self-proclaimed “authorities,” who extort from you under the guise of providing the service of protection, are often the most dangerous element to introduce into any situation. That’s why it’s good to see tools like Peacekeeper now exist, so that we can form our own trusted networks to rely upon in times of need.

Become aware of the situation that the Goodblankets were thrust into and do what you can to assist. And also, realize the systematic pattern of unaccountability that is inherent, when “justice” is said to be provided by a monopoly based on coercion. Withdraw your consent and act accordingly.

Attention Justice and Civil Rights: Interested Parties

Around 8pm on December 21st, 2013, our 18 year old son Mah-hi-vist Goodblanket was unjustly slain, in our western Oklahoma home. Young Mah-hi-vist was shot 7 times with one of those shots being to the back of his head then he was bound and handcuffed. His body was left in the home unattended for 30 minutes before the EMT on scene was sent into the home for vital signs. Mah-hi-vist had been experiencing an ODD episode earlier that evening when we called 911 for fear that he may hurt himself.

When the county deputies arrived they never offered any words nor did they question either of us about the circumstances. Mah-hi-vist had kicked out the glass window of his room (4×6 foot glass window) when deputies arrived they entered the home through the bedroom window. They exited through the same window seconds later, regrouped and re-entered the home a second time through the same window. Two deputies with weapons pulled followed by two Highway Patrol with their weapons pulled. The end result of their arrival to be of assistance was the death of our son.

In April the local District Attorney and his team ruled the shooting death as justified. This type of atrocity should never happen but seems to be on the rise across this country. We are seeking assistance in the truth surfacing in this case and further seek accountability of the officers involved in the killing of our son. We have to date rallied at the local court house, the State Capitol and we have organized and marched with well over 200 other individuals, through the streets of Clinton Oklahoma.

Clinton Oklahoma is located in the far western section of Oklahoma and is the home of the Southern Cheyenne and Arapaho people. The area is tainted with stories of prejudice, racism and acts of police brutality towards people of color. The name of the county is Custer, named after a mass murderer of Native women and children. In the county law enforcement building, hangs an oil painting of General George Armstrong Custer. This is the attitude and energy that blankets the Native community here.

At the time the deputies showed up at our home, our son had calmed down and asked them to retrieve his dad and me from outside the home to come in and lay down with him. They refused his request. His girlfriend was with him inside the home when they shot and killed our son. There were no negotiations offered, there was no integrity, no compassion, no honor or respect for life shown to any of our family members and certainly not to our son.

If you can offer any assistance to us in the matter of Justice for Mah-hi-vist , Please feel free to contact us by mail or through email at Please note subject of email as Justice for Mah-hi-vist so we may be able to sort the email and answer your inquiry. We have filed a tort claim and now have 180 days to file lawsuit on any and all involved in the death of our son.
