I have been given the opportunity to take my campaign to a new website, PanhandlePolitico.com. I have a headlining article. http://www.panhandlepolitico.com/escambia-news/wrong-escambia-county-law-enforcement/
In looking into how the craziness of the “official” state version of the events of July 9,2009 unfolded, one must look at the testimony of the investigators. In a sworn deposition of Chris Baggett and Tama Barber in 2010, these two investigators said that the 48 hours of the investigation, Justin Billings as well as other members of the Billings’ family were the prime suspects. The Escambia County Sheriff’s office had GSR on Justin Billings’s hands, albeit trace, it is still incriminating. They have an abandoned van at a weigh station in Alabama that appears to be the getaway vehicle.
Then a man name James Hartsfield comes forward to say that he thinks his van was used in the murders, as he saw it on TV. This leads to Terri Poff and then to Patrick Gonzalez Jr and Leonard Gonzalez Sr. When deputies showed up at Sr’s house, he had been up for 3 days cooking meth. He freaked out when there were deputies at his door as most men would. Then in the course of investigating Sr and his peculiar affect, another van is found on his property that also resembles the one at the weigh station. This is roughly 72 hours into the investigation.
According to a deposition by Tama Barber, a now newly promoted Sheriff’s department employee, the news outlets were telling a narrative and showing faces of people involved that the deputies had never seen. They had not heard the name “Gary Sumner”, “Frederick Thornton” or many of the others listed except for Jr and Sr. Because of the chaos and the number of hands of different law enforcement agencies, such as the DEA, Homeland Security, ATF, IRS and Santa Rosa Deputies, no one knew for sure who “leaked the narrative with pictures” but the investigators followed the trail of breadcrumbs and got 4 confessions. The confessions of 2 teenagers who almost immediately rolled, Wayne Coldiron and a very high Sr.
Here is the problem, what if someone with an interest in seeing how the pieces fell released the narrative with the bits of truth in scattered within? None of which included the bogus story Justin Billings gave to police about a Colorado gang hit nor the fact he had GSR without a plausible explanation of such. What about the fact the state had 2 red vans? One at the weigh station and one at Sr’s house. The one in Alabama disappears as soon as the narrative of what happened is released.
Before I proceed, let me quote an article from August, 2008, by Rick Outzen:
“We (David Morgan campaign) went into the election day knowing that we were going to win by 10 points or more,” David Craig interjects. The actual margin of victory was 13.4 percentage points, or 3,211 votes. In the 2004 Republican primary, McNesby beat Morgan by 34 points.
“We wanted to bury this guy (McNesby) with the truth,” adds Craig.”
The reason I shared is two fold. David Craig is now the communication director of the Sheriff’s department. He began this job in January of 2009. He also is more locally known for his show on BLAB-TV, “Blue Lights”, the Pensacola Cops show that incorporated Craig riding with Pensacola Police Department until he wasn’t allowed to do so anymore. There was a separation between he and the PPD. One can only speculate but he was persona non grata at the police station for some reason. So he hitched his wagon to the Sheriff’s office.
These are statements that shows the morality of Mr. Craig. He aligned and virtually guaranteed victory for Morgan. “We (David Morgan campaign) went into the election day knowing that we were going to win by 10 points or more.” The problem with this statement is that by the nature of elections, there is no way of “knowing” who will win especially to quote the “spread” (10 points). That tells me that it is a rigged vote. In other words, Craig makes things “happen” and as his website states, he is into “crisis management”. The exact phrasing goes something like this:
In addition to video and radio production we also offer services for political campaigns. Have a product, service or idea that you’d like to market? Call us for a free consultation. Have a crisis that you’d like to manage to it’s best possible conclusion? A political campaign that you’d like to see victorious? Think Reality News Network.
As a communications director for the Sheriff’s office, if a narrative came from Mr. Craig to the media on July 12, 2009, it would appear to be legitimate and credible. Mr. Craig also appears to hired jack of all trades. He is a freelance crisis manager. This means he fixes “situations” for clients for money. Could there be a client that had an interest to see this narrative known by news media, but not the actual investigators run its full course?
Absolutely. Anything for buck, right, Mr. Craig
Something must be said. In all my days working towards getting justice in a place where there is no justice, I have been accused of being sanctimonious, unintelligent, naive, even man-chasing after a lost cause because I am a woman. I have never addressed these things because those that KNOW me know that is not the case. These are all attempts to minimize my mission.
My very core of being led me to this place. I was born with greatness as my uncle Mike would say. The greatness is not in blood or even heritage. It is self belief and confidence. We all have it; it is merely a matter of how much of yourself you listen to or maybe some will call it what God believes of me. I believe the latter personally because you cannot have the former without the latter but I understand that is not everyone’s view.
I am a simple person who has always basked in being underestimated in every realm of my life. Nothing feeds the soul like doing something people say is impossible. I was not supposed to live at birth. I was not supposed to be able to bear children. I was not supposed to be able to make a difference in the journey but yet I find myself working amongst some of the strongest people in Pensacola to aid me in doing the right thing. People I read in the news about but never thought I would have a dialogue with, men like Gene Valentino, Rex Blackburn and others. These men have a legacy in Pensacola. They are trendsetters. They are people who have crossed my path in commonality of mission.
I know it may not seem like much either but I get to work with Patrick Gonzalez and Richard Gonzalez. They are aristocracy from the foundation of Pensacola. This is an excerpt from Pensapedia. (I did not write this nor did I poach it, Mr. Outzen. I am just CITING it.)
Don Manuel Gonzalez was born in 1767 in San Vincente, de la Barquera, Santander Province, Spain. Born into landed gentry, Gonzalez ran away from home to serve on his uncle’s ship. On December 17, 1784, he joined the army and was sent to the New World, landing in New Orleans. He was made Indian Agent in 1792 and was given the rank of Colonel and later Brigadier General in the Spanish Army. Don Manuel came to possess large tracts of land in Pensacola through honors granted by the Spanish Crown. After leaving the army, he was granted passage through the Choctaw and Creek nations and established residence in Pensacola, where he became a cattle rancher. He donated the land for Plaza Ferdinand VII to the city and opened a market there in 1816. When Florida was transferred to the United States in 1821, Gonzalez, a friend of General Andrew Jackson (and at whose house Jackson and his wife awaited the transfer), was appointed Justice of the Peace and made a Colonel in the American Army. The first Florida Legislature was held (and the first statutes enacted) at Don Manuel’s home, Gonzalia (nicknamed the “Fifteen-Mile House”). He was made Quartermaster General for the Florida Militia on September 14, 1822.
Gonzalez died in his home on March 8, 1838. His burial was marked by the closing of many businesses and was described by the Pensacola Gazette as well-attended, including the uniformed officers of the French corvette La Brillante.
Patrick & Lenny Gonzalez may not look like the sort to be of importance in Pensacola today. But like I said, I believe we all have greatness in us. We are Americans…our existence is miraculous. Thousands of people died trying to get the American Dream. We are the stock of the people who made it…the survivors.
Each of us has a family story. I feel the need to live up to a standard of the way I was raised and the people I came from. Honor is a seldom used word in our culture. I have done some bad things that will forever mar my character and for those things my penance is to do right in other ways. Slaying this nasty corrupt dragon is going to be my legacy. It is my destiny. I put my soul into this. I have made exactly $4.70 so far off of 3 years of work. But my conscience is clear and my motives are right. For that reason, I believe with every fiber in my being I can only succeed. That is all that matters.

UPDATE: FBI, DOJ refuse to investigate charges of judicial corruption

Re: “SEC IG looks into United Airlines bankruptcy,” Nov. 24
For three years, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice have refused to investigate material evidence of a nationwide criminal racket that has allegedly infiltrated state and federal courts and is unlawfully manipulating and exploiting litigants in bankruptcy, family and probate courts.
According to court documents filed in Chicago, the FBI and DOJ turned a blind eye to retaliation against citizens who attempted to expose the corruption, including “kidnapping of children, false incarceration after being ‘framed’ by criminal elements in civil and criminal authorities, impoverishment, coercion under duress, and serious physical injury up to and including death.”
The 2006 affidavit claims that “multiple judges and lawyers are aware of and/or involved in alleged criminal acts,” but have not…

It has been brought to my attention that the climate in Pensacola regarding Sheriff David Morgan (I like to call him “The Media Whore”, but that’s just me) and Sleazy Bill Eddins (Again that is my thoughts, I think we are still allowed to say opinions, right?). It seems their arrogance and overconfidence in the GOB (Good Ole Boy) System makes them remarkably reckless. Now everybody knows Morgan pisses people off with his complete ethical disregard of standards over his deputies or for that matter any amount of oversight and supervision. Let’s just thing of the man with 15 bullet holes in his car in his own driveway in the middle of the night, purely in error or the little boy on a bicycle in Brownsville that was tasered by a moving patrol car that then ran over the boy as he fell to the ground again when the boy, just as the man in his yard was guilty of nothing provable.
Then Mr. Eddins…well what can I say….he is a political glutton with no conscious who falls in alignment with whatever his cronies tell him to including falsifying grand juries that did not take place. I am referring to the testimony supposedly given in Patrick Gonzalez Jr.s trial. He interviewed Frederick Thornton without counsel or recording said interview took notes to the grand jury without documentation in the presence of Corey Aittama, his lead investigator. Now this grand jury with no testimony documented or witnesses taken from the jail was given to David Rimmer who was “acting” as the judge over the grand jury “to fill a vacancy” but it’s ok because Nick Geeker approved it. To me, in Pensacola, no one’s word can be trusted. It seems to me that this grand jury—IF IT DID TAKE PLACE– was a mockery of justice with the conspirators involved calling the shots. Either way that indictment should not have been granted; it was absent of justice and with no indictment, it seems like anything that proceeded from the fruit of that fake planted palm is non-existent.
Then you have David Craig, the stoner, who either is not supervised himself or acting in direct collusion screwing with press releases, leaking a timeline and suspects that Deputy Tama Barber testifies were never developed at that point they appeared on the CNN. Being the Community/Communication Director for the Sheriff’s office, it would seem like Mr. Craig has some “splaining” to do.
But even in the face of all this, Morgan leaves County Commissioner Gene Valentino a threatening voicemail which has to do with the jail being taken from under his control. By the way, has anyone thought of the fact, the jail being under Commission control and “exploding” may or may not have been a veiled threat from our fine Sheriff? Seems convenient to show that the jail was in the commission’s “reckless” hands. It was a ploy that ultimately by an “act of God” got the Lenny Gonzalez’s van destroyed due to water contamination. Kinda hard to prove that wasn’t the van used in the Billing’s murder if it has been destroyed and the actual van disappeared that was found at the weigh station.
I think ex-Sheriff McNesby and the many other people like John Powell and maybe former deputy Chris Baggett Sheriff Morgan stupidly crossed in his misguided God complex should bond together. The enemy of my enemy is my friend and it seems there are so many of them. Mr. Morgan, maybe you should get a flak helmet…there’s gonna be blood in the water.
Seems the FDLE, Florida’s next Ex-Gov Rick Scottt, 2nd Judicial Circuit State Attorney Willie Meggs and Leon County Sheriff’s son prosecutor Jack Campbell thought it was necessary to expedite an arrest without Grand Jury indictment and suspend without pay duly elected Liberty County Sheriff Nick Finch. Sheriff Nick Finch was fully exonerated at trial by a Jury of his peers and they were forced to reinstate him and I’m certain full compensation for his being abused, including indue pain and suffering, by the system is in order.“THIS GUY” was an analyst with the Pensacola Office of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement it seems, but the full story has not been disclosed…..DUE TO ANOTHER CORRUPT COVERUP!

Barfield became operations and management consulting manager for the alcohol testing program in 2001. She supervised six department inspectors and had several responsibilities including certifying all breath-test operators for the state.
Well, here we are at the end 2014. It’s been a year. Conjuring Justice is out. The biggest part of the story is out for masses. It is incredibly quiet, although I know that I have ruffled a feather or two. I know that by the signals I get from the periphery. The subtle rippling of the proverbial pool of justice. It is out there and I hope to turn it into a full bore whirlpool.
It has become apparently clear that the definition of jurisprudence in Escambia County is different than in the rest of the world. Sadly, it has a similar definition to cronyism. “Cover your ass” and “one hand washes the other” are the themes of all the circumstances around the Billings’ Murders and the reasonings that took so many lives. It is the most deplorable, sleazy, genuinely most corrupt affair that could be dreamt up.
It is such a far-fetched story that it is unconscionable that it is true. So many people and no moral fiber to speak of between the bunch. In a day where civlians lose their lives due a political strategy and an on-going homeland operation, it is unbelievably unethical to lay those deaths at the feet of innocent men. Denying the entire time that anything, diabolical is going on, even as the judge is commandeered and the prosecutors are having unrecorded interviews with suspects prior to law enforcement, that completely skew the horizon of the entire case. Sabotaging at every angle to cover up a bad political move regarding a territory war, the court officers and legal experts who are paid to ensure justice all conspire to make names for themselves in the face of a very brutish attempt to let one cartel snuff out another with terrorist acts. That is in fact what happened in Pensacola, Florida on July 9, 2009. It should be seen for the animalistic act it is.
I took the Nanowrimo challenge. I wrote a novel in 30 days. I won! I did it! Yea for me!
The story needs to be told. I have been accused of capitalizing on the backs of the horrors and to that accusation I say I put my heart and soul into proving the innocence of one man. In the meantime, the evidence proves at least 2 others are innocent as well. I’m not capitalizing on anything. I am making a living proving innocence. Take that for what it is worth and know that I did come into this pure of heart as I still am today. If that is not absolutely clear, there is nothing more I can say to convince anyone.
I am working on a project that is beyond myself. I found a cause in helping a dear friend. His life is in peril and you and I can save him.
You might ask how and it is very simple. I need a following. I need people to look at his story wholly and completely, seeing the injustice done . Why should we care? Because an injustice against one is an injustice against all. There is a tale that has been told that is not true but is being paraded as truth. We, each, have experienced that. Someone speaking untruths about you. Someone causing trouble in a sea of peace.
This is what is happening to Patrick Gonzalez except he lost his home, his wife, his kids, his name and he may lose his life, but for people standing up with righteousness behind them. I need your help in making that stance. You merely have to follow me and read Patrick’s story. Producing a web-presence of truth takes masses of people and I know the people who are reading this have a spare moment to view, to click, to follow the course to Patrick’s exoneration.
In looking at the elements of this “well-planned” home invasion from Patrick’s perspective would any of us do the the following things:
1. Use a mentally unstable, chemically dependent father as any part of the crime. A man that will crack under pressure and who has been willingly absent the majority of his son’s life. Highly suggestible and paranoid, he believes everyone is “after him”.
2. Use a pieced together 1979, 1982, & 1986 Dodge van without brakes or reverse, as a good “getaway” vehicle.
3. Commit a crime with knowledge of surveillance cameras that are not deactivated.
4. Tell a number of people about the crime prior to committing it, knowing that gossip spreads like wildfire in Pensacola/Gulf Breeze
5. Use 4 people out of 8 that were strangers whose trustworthiness had NOT been established nor were they close friends. Gary Sumner knew Pat for 3 weeks. He introduced him to Donnie Stallworth, Rakeem Florence & Frederick Thornton. Not knowing these guys from Adam, give them guns, tell them secrets and expect the kids to be able keep from cracking.
6. Allowing a known addict, Wayne Coldiron, be involved. He is a strung-out addict. Coldiron tells everyone Patrick did this and he was with him. Right off the bat. Just a bit too easy.
7. Putting as many people as possible in a house at one time. The chaos and the number of people exponentially increases the chances of leaving evidence behind as well as having someone crack.
8. Shooting 2 people that could have been easily incapacitated without a weapon. As someone who has been trained from childhood to defend themselves with their body, who trained people to fight back against any size attacker, going in solo to “take care” of the adults would have been the way to go and then bring others in after or as needed. This would lessen the liability to the one person we can all trust above all others–ourselves.
The vehicle and 6 unpredictable people entering into this plot would be absurdly ridiculous for a well thought out plan. Unless the plan was to have the people entering the house get caught….
This is the worst devised plan ever! Especially for Patrick. He was arrogant and a big talker, but he is intelligent. When you lay this all out, who would be dumb enough to go into this? The one person he trusts–Pam Long Wiggins–is just as screwed as he is. Her hubby, Hugh blames everything on the 2 of them.
