In an interview with WEAR, Sheriff Morgan was interviewed about how the recent increase in crime & the perception of Pensacola, or rather the marketability of Pensacola would be affected. Before I get to his statements, I would like to offer an answer to those questions.
The increasing crime rate in Escambia County seems to directly correlate with the lapse of morality within the leadership of the community, particularly Sheriff Morgan. This statement may raise a great deal of controversy, but there is a practical and philosophical basis.
Martin Luther King said: The ultimate test of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and moments of convenience, but where he stands in moments of challenge and moments of controversy.
On some positions, Cowardice asks the question, ‘Is it safe?’ Expediency asks the question, ‘Is it politic?’ And Vanity comes along and asks the question, ‘Is it popular?’ But Conscience asks the question ‘Is it right?’ And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must do it because Conscience tells him it is right.
Practically speaking, Sun Tzu and Machiavelli, both wrote of leadership instruction centuries ago and are both regarded as principal references still used by leadership and military professionals today. On a practical side, both define a leader as being a person whose foundation is built upon consistency. They emphasize that to be the cornerstone of all leadership skill. Setting the rules and abiding by them to the letter is the primary foundation for establishing an effective, time-tested leadership. When employees realize that even the leader is subject to the rules, then they will fall in line.
By downplaying transgressions, a poor leader compromises all management decisions subsequent to those compromises. This has been demonstrated within the Manning sex case. Morgan squelched the investigation. This would be an opportunity to make an example out of sexual offenders of all kinds. Politically, this would have been a sign of strength and zero tolerance of such behavior by Escambia County Deputies. This decisive event could have been a formal way to separate ECSO from criminal activity. Did that happen? No. The investigation was rolled into a rug and buried. Why? What possible reason would there be to not hang these most egregious abusers of power out to dry? According to Machiavelli, “the first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him.” In this single move, publicly Morgan reduced himself to the level of the people he led who turned out to be criminals. The opportunity to rise above the situation and take command of the perception of the public was available for him to take it or leave it. He left it. If this is what is condoned within the walls of the ECSO, it logically follows that the community cannot be held to any higher standard. That is reflective in the crime rate and the mishandling of cases in an effort to cover an inability to lead.
Philosophically speaking, inept leadership invites corruption. In a research study, “The dynamics of effective corrupt leadership: Lessons from Rafik Hariri’s political career in Lebanon” by Mark Neal & Richard Tansey, which was published in The Leadership Quarterly 21 (1) 33-49, they observed “corrupt political leaders are usually ineffective…self-interested”. Their observations saw these qualities led to overcompensation of bolstering of power. However, this power is a false flag because the consequences it yields are undisciplined, inconsistent and evades responsibility. The errors or ills are always outward making the leader the willful victim of his own incompetence. This is how corruption seeps in. The psychological need to fulfill a role that cannot be filed leads to work-arounds and shortcuts. Justice is lost in ineptness.
They also point out that the flaw in how corruption is dealt with outwardly. Corruption is investigated as a systematic failure. This is a problem in two important ways. First, this approach does not comprehend or deal with the psychological/sociological forces operating when corrupt relationships occur.
“Specifically, power in organizations and power relationships between individuals have serious implications for the way corruption functions. Understanding corruption this way allows us to focus on the role of influence and networks of influence in corrupt relationships. Secondly, the systemic approach completely ignores the role of an individual’s free will in corrupt transactions. The systemic approach is only designed to fix “the system” of the public sector agency that has been the victim of corruption. This preoccupation with the system does not allow sufficient attention to be paid to the motivations and goal orientation of private actors. Corrupt transactions occur between individual human beings as the result of specific human interactions. For corrupt transactions to occur there must be communication between two or more individuals. They don’t happen by osmosis (and they don’t happen) by accident
Individuals intend to participate in corrupt transactions. They may not call them corrupt or they may have some rationalization to justify their behavior, but they intend for their transaction to have consequences which they desire. In this sense, corrupt transactions are social interactions between individuals and have to be viewed in terms of the intentions of the individuals. The intentions of both parties when participating in a corrupt transaction are to promote their interests. This may be an obvious point but it is nonetheless important. Promoting your own interest is essentially identifying and realizing personal goals. In order to achieve one’s goals one must have “power.” It is my contention that both parties to corrupt transactions are power-holders and power-seekers. They may possess differing amounts of power, but more importantly, they each possess resources of power that cannot easily be converted to promote their own interests. The purpose of corrupt transactions is to conduct a power swap which converts resources of power into actual usable power. The participants in the transaction can then use the power they have obtained as part of the transaction to promote their own interest.”
Corruption must be recognized as an act of individuals who manipulate the system in some way to their advantage. Fraud is brother of corruption. Sheriff Morgan fraudulently said he was “knight”, while that point is insignificant, the underlying fact that he would make that statement speaks to his view of responsibility, morality and respect he has to the people he is elected to serve. This is demeaning to the community because they are misinformed and mislead. In every research endeavor, one must consider the source, yet when the source seems like person we can relate to, who is in a position of command, such as Morgan, this leads people to fall prey to his attempts to take advantage of his power to “tell a tale” rather than relaying facts.
When Sheriff Morgan says something like he said to jurors in the Patrick Gonzalez Capital Murder case and many, many other court case such as, “I’ve done my part and now it’s time to do yours” while grasping the jurors’ hands to shake them in an act of agreement. This is a sanctifying step results in the responsibility of the citizens to do as they are told. For the average person, the weight of imprisoning the killers is, now, on them. It is no longer a question of innocence. Morgan has placed an onus on the shoulders of the citizens to do their part ie…convict. He is interjecting his morality and his opinions into an equation which proves only to prejudice citizens. Hitler used such methods to incite Germans to go after Jews. Remember this statement: Moral corruption incorporates a range of acts that place self-interest, rather than the interest of the community/group, as its ultimate goal.
Sheriff Morgan has power invested in his words by the people of Escambia County because of his elected position. In this role, when he asserts things, people take it for truth. The dilemma develops when he asserts non-factual or misleading ideas and personal agendas that are being taken take as fact. As a politician and human, when he speaks his morality must be scrutinized. He is obliged by oath, to be impartial, but this is rarely the case. His personal agendas, perceptions and value system are what is often propagated. There are many examples that provide proof of this pattern of behavior. The following is an analysis and deconstructing of some statements Sheriff Morgan has made in the last few days.
Statement #1: Regarding the Smith triple homicide:
“Well….the time of the blue moon every three years, the method of the murders and also our person of interest is known to practice this. It’s witchcraft. I’ll say that right now”
This is not a statement of fact but it is being portrayed as such. This is misinforming the public of the circumstances of this brutal crime. It is a red herring. That was good publicity talk for media. Sensationalism is a tool of the media but Sheriff Morgan uses it as a tool of reference. Doing so is obtuse and the only reason to use that as a tool of reference is he does not know how to use the facts and responsibility he has to convey an unbiased account to not skew the public or potentially the jury pool.
As a matter of fact, this lead did not “pan” out. Now this Wiccan is not a “suspect” so what happens to this ritualistic murder and witchcraft? It disappears. Morgan’s credibility in saying “It’s witchcraft. I’ll say that right now” that is NEGLIGENCE. If a doctor told someone, “This is cancer. I’ll say that right now”, then it wasn’t, what would be thought of the doctor? He is arrogant and incompetent. That is problem with Sheriff Morgan being a “media whore” (my name for him informally), he is there to promote himself not the facts or to inform the public.
Statement #2: “What I find sad about the last homicide was the fact that we have lost 3 of our citizens. That has been lost in the noise. Nobody is talking about the 3 innocent people who have lost their lives which is the horrific part”
This statement is the blowback of Sheriff Morgan’s narcissistic comments which were self-serving and not information. In legalese, this is considered “misinformation”. The misrepresentation of facts or accounts; to give false pretense. His press conference was supposed to be a bringing forth of the facts and investigation thus far in this brutal murder. Instead Sheriff Morgan made his statements the center of the press conference and is now condemning the very people who he led down that road by his “witchcraft” assertion. A responsible speaker knows that there are words that inflame. Anything racial or religious are understood to be inflammatory. Another is wording that is divisive by nature. If the statement categorically generalizes and isolates any one set of people, the fuse of public outrage is lit.
Sheriff Morgan is presumably a man who has read sensationalized news reports and has criticized such things. However, he perpetrates the same sensationalism in lieu of facts. Why? One could argue that the Escambia County election season has started and any publicity is good publicity. One thing that cannot be argued with any factual basis is that there was an intent to educate the public unbiasedly of the facts surrounding the triple murder. That was not his intent, yet it was his duty. In this capacity, his message is morally corrupt by definition.
Impact of these murders on the marketability of the Pensacola community:
“The community needs to understand unless you’re engaged in high risk behavior, the probability of you being a victim of a violent crime is very low. It’s very very small “What would affect marketability (of Pensacola) would be if we weren’t telling the truth. That’s why when cases and investigations allow, we try and be as transparent as possible.”
Now this comment is a simple reverting back to the exploitation of the position of power given to him by the community. He’s asserting his personal bias that effectively led to no conclusion in truth. This is calculated measure to emphasize his “truthiness”. However, there is no truth to the statements and as such, the murders are lost in the semantics Sheriff Morgan calculatedly used to get good “face-time”. This is a betrayal of his oath of office, his responsibility to the citizens and community. It is a morally, public office corruption.
How this affects the statistics on crime is simple. Government and law enforcement have a duty to put criminals in jail. What are criminals? This is where the law gets grey. Authority figures with no morality may wield this magic wand as rod of punishment to political enemies and also a tool to absolve others of criminal legality. That is why it is imperative to scrutinize the practices and moral ideology on a daily basis of any person put into such a power position. Sheriff Morgan, as a matter of routine, misleads and manipulates the public. Is it a stretch to think that those watching him start to back slide into same moral sinkhole? If the authority figure who is looked to as the instrument of justice is not manning his post as he should, what happens? People around him are not held to the same standard and they loosen their gird on their behaviors. This is how the deputies become corrupted by a poor leader. This all is conducive to making crime rates go up. Thus you have Escambia County today. The citizens of Escambia County, Southerners, are seen as an ever-increasingly criminal, uneducated lot based on the only national recognition that we have. Sheriff Morgan.
To end on a note of wisdom, many historic leaders have spoken on corruption because it is a timeless vice that is as old as the human race itself. Here are just a couple of statements regarding corruption that seem to best portray the fatal flaw of this kind of behavior by a public official.
Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first. ―Ronald Reagan
Whenever a man has cast a longing eye on offices, a rottenness begins in his conduct. ―Thomas Jefferson
Power-lust is a weed that grows only in the vacant lots of an abandoned mind.
― Ayn Rand,
Among a people generally corrupt, liberty cannot long exist.
― Edmund Burke
Look at the orators in our republics; as long as they are poor, both state and people can only praise their uprightness; but once they are fattened on the public funds, they conceive a hatred for justice, plan intrigues against the people and attack the democracy.
― Aristophanes, Plutus
As I have been saying for 3 years, Sheriff Morgan is no criminal investigator. He develops a theory and with tunnel vision. To the exclusion of actual facts and evidence, he plumps up his cheeks and gets in front of the media and touts his own truth. This is what happened in the recent triple murder of the Smith Family. He claims, “this is witchcraft”. Thankfully the public knew enough not to believe it. That has not always been the case.
On July 27, 2009, Morgan staged one of many national press conferences and with all the drama he could muster, he told Ashley Markham, “We found them (the people who killed your parents)”. He hugged the sobbing woman, resting his head upon hers in an embrace, of course, at an angle so that there is good exposure to publicity shots.
This very act should have been the first red flag. How many victims has Morgan ever touched, much less hugged? He clearly had an agenda as did Ashley. They shared secrets as to what was really behind this crime. Sheriff Morgan–at the time of this shot–knew Justin Billings had gunshot residue on his hands the night of the murder. He knew there were 2 vans. He knew there was more likely a bigger picture other than the scenario he followed. He exemplifies that in this video.
Ashley knew that the only witness to the murders, her brother with Down’s Syndrome, when asked who committed the crime, kept signing “brother” ie Justin. This child did not know traditional sign language. He knew baby sign language, which is signs for things rather than letters. There was a sign for “Mom”, “Dad”, “Ashley (sister), “Justin (brother) that are unique and different from any other signs. This boy signed his sign for Justin over and over. Now the social worker who interviewed the boy did not know the sign, but April Spencer, the nanny, Ashley & Blue Markham and close people to the family did. Ashley conveyed this to someone close.
By brandishing this knowledge, Ashley used this lie to stave off any claims by Justin to the estate. While that is despicable and psychopathic, the real crime is by Sheriff Morgan is lack of ability to run an investigation. Whether this is willful or just pure ignorance, he uses this same pattern of behavior. He eliminated Bud Billings’s work life as a possible murder, immediately. He did the same with the triple homicide, he dismissed the fact that Homeland Security and Richard White’s position as a Cyber-crimes expert with a high security level. Point blank, it is too premature to eliminate any angle. Yet he has done just so by focusing on this farcical theory of “witchcraft”.
This is such a miscarriage of justice because as author, occult expert, Michelle Belanger says in her rant on Facebook,
The biggest problem in Pensacola right now is you got a Sheriff who is jumping to all kinds of conclusions. He’s creating his own kind of red herrings. …My other problem with Sheriff Morgan is, your average person doesn’t know what a Wiccan is, doesn’t know what a Pagan is. They hear these words from an authority figure, like Sheriff Morgan. What he is doing, either through his own ignorance or his own willful misdirection of the actual facts of the case. He’s betraying the trust that people have put into him……..He is misleading people who he’s their only source for whether or not that’s true. And because he’s seen as an authority figure, they are not going to go out and Google to find out that he’s actually talking out of his posterior in a grievous way that could honestly incite hate crimes.
I absolutely agree. There is probably no real way to undo the damage Sir David’s misinformed words on both these cases. He has set the tone for every perception every person in Pensacola will ever know of these two cases, as misguided and out of rhythm those perceptions are. The thought of Bud Billings being killed by a family member or business associate is far more plausible than the theory of crime as the state prosecuted it.
In the national news footage, Morgan acknowledges there is ties to drug cartels. That is suppressed. It is also mentioned that Down’s boy described how Bud grabbed the man who fatally shot him by the neck. This is corroborate below:
This, IN AND OF ITSELF, should provide the reasonable doubt.
Pensacola, FL: Triple murder is a “witchcraft” murder. Sometimes, these posts just write themselves. Sir David has deemed this to be ritualistic, Wiccan, witchcraft, pagan or what have you due to the way the bodies were laid out in the time during the time of the “blue moon”. The timing of the blue moon is off because these people were murdered before the full moon and of course, because none of these groups have even fringe groups that kill people ritualistically. It seems that he was really trying to say “satanic” but because of how absurd that sounds, he relies on the people of Pensacola to believe it was witchcraft. More plausible I suppose.
Other reasons not to believe this lie is that Richard Thomas Smith was a high level Homeland Security agent who was over IT and cyber-crimes. In Pensacola, there is probably 2 people who outrank him. Doug Underhill did a job fair for recruitment for this division on June 22, 2015 at New World Landing. I am sure he met Agent Smith. Also, according to sources on the inside of ECSO, a warrant presented to a judge for investigation of the scene described circumstances prior to the bodies being found. Agent Smith emailed his boss on Wednesday morning, July 29, 2015, to say he need 1/2 day off. Then another email was received that same afternoon saying he needed the whole day off. Finally that evening, the final email came in saying he would need Thursday off.
Now the question I have is why the emails? How did the killer know to email who he did? I am not an investigator but if there is evidence of a ritual killing, maybe it is staged that way to cover up something else. The level of violence, including the claw hammer suggests passion or a struggle. Neither of which are indicative of any sort of ritual. Not to mention that there has not been a true “ritualistic” killing in years. The last was the “satanic” scare of the 1990’s which has proven to be COMPLETELY untrue and a catch-all phrase for most murders where no clear motive is seen. When DNA and PROPER investigations took place, what do you know? No more satanic killings…NONE!
This is truly one of the best, most self-satisfying moments I had in a while. I bet all those who are politically tied to Morgan turn tail. Who wants to be connected with this marvel of authority?
No what defies logic for you, Mrs. Patterson to be prosecuting this case knowing that you accepted a bribe not go after other deputies that did just what this man did. THAT IS WHAT DEFIES LOGIC. Ex-deputy charged with sex crimes won’t be ‘unfettered’ http://ow.ly/Qm6St
Sing me the Song that the Dead Sparrow Sings
Sing me the song that the dead sparrow sings: the poor bird that struggles to fly broken wings;
Broken and torn then – and here comes the storm: He cries out and tears fall and he longs for warmth.His song is of Hatred and rarely Love, And how he was always mocked by the doves:
The robins that taunted the blue jays that bit: He took in so much he didn’t know of it:
The chickadees all pecked thus his talons were worn… he lay there all tattered in the middle of his storm. He longed for glory, for love and respect; And when he didn’t get it he didn’t know the rest.
What else was there in life; other than their eyes… The little things a bird sees before he dies.
Little one, little one don’t cry for long. The sparrow, he’s singing, his lonely song.
Little one, Oh, Little one, Don’t shed your tears… The sparrow will love you, there’s nothing to fear.
Little one, little one, little one be: Listen now, hush now, listen quietly: Here it now? There it is, the Dead Sparrow’s Song. His words speak of dead dreams and things that went wrong.
Of dark skies and gray clouds of screaming and blood: Of being constantly thrown into the mud.
Morgan said he ran for sheriff because the department needed leadership.
“There aren’t any bad organizations. There’s bad leadership, and that was certainly true here,” Morgan said. “It was not the rank and file, it was not the men and women assigned to this agency, as much as it was a lack of leadership.”
Morgan was on the job just six months before Byrd and Melanie Billings were murdered in July 2009.
“At no time did we find any evidence that Byrd Billings was ever involved in any criminal activity that would of made him such a target for such a brutal murder, for he and his wife,” Morgan said. “He was the victim of a crime, not the subject of a crime.”
Morgan agrees with the state attorney that the primary motive for the murders were visions of grandeur with the money and home invasion robbery.
Morgan said the case garnered an unbelievable amount of media attention.
“You don’t understand how big it is when you’re in the middle of it. I knew it was a big case the morning I showed up for work and there were nine satellite trucks in the parking lot,” Morgan said. “I know on at least three occasions they broke into regular programming for updates on the Billings case.”
The attention included international contact from people concerned about the “special needs kids” the Billings left behind.
Morgan said surveillance tapes from the house provided information and is one of two reason eight suspects were quickly arrested.
Morgan said his people made the first seven arrests within four days, and the eighth arrest was just hours later.
“We solved the case that quickly because we created a marriage with the media in the case by getting information out very quickly,” Morgan said.
4. The videotape. There are so many things to say about the video. It was grainy. The FBI in Quantico, VA could not produce any enhancement to the video. The images were not clear and COULD NOT BE MADE MORE CLEAR.
|Kristopher Blom Deposition
Technology Expert for the State Attorney’s Office
- People were told what was on the tape by Sir David. This was told to the media who took it and reinforced the narrative they were fed.
Moral of the Story:
People die because of an ill-conceived theory that is not properly researched. Two deaths so far and not one person ever investigated at least one suspect.
Can this case ever be solved? Probably not.
Corruption and Sir David’s shiny smile were more important than justice.
“NERO FIDDLED WHILE ROME BURNED”
MARY FRANCIS GYLES
Yesterday, in my frustration, I called to set up a time for a call with Mr. Fred Levin. For those who know, he is the major influence in Pensacola. His political clout can make or break an election. To my surprise and completely off guard, Mr. Levin was able to speak with me right then and there. It was brief but qualitative.
I expressed my concern for the overall perception of Pensacola because of asshats like Morgan and what all he’s doing that is going to be imminently uncovered. I mentioned his financial misappropriation and the sexual discrimination within the Sheriff’s office that is so prevalent that it borders on class action status, according to Marie Mattox. Mr. Levin told me that he had supported Morgan in the past and he realized the image being cast in the public forum that disgraces us all. Morgan being a liability for Pensacola was clear. Mr. Levin seemed unaware of the lawsuits pending by so many employees, particularly women but he suggested that the strongest candidate for Sheriff is John Johnson who announced his official bid yesterday. Mr. Levin suggested I contact Mr. Johnson with all the information I had. He believed that would be the best course of action.
While this may not seem like much, this tells me there is a divide in Levin and Morgan. We all know what that means. Whether Levin supports Johnson or Baldwin or the man on the moon, it seems like he sees Morgan for the liability he is. I would go so far as to say Morgan is a political pariah. This is good news for Escambia County.
As the officially observed day of America’s independence from the repressive, tyrannical King George, I am saddened that we, as Americans, have chosen to implement repression, throwing away liberties without regard to the fight that took place to provide them. The founding fathers risked life and limb to provide us the openness of expression free from oppression by an authority that claims to be higher than our own. Case in point, the Confederate flag.
Think what you will of such a flag, but this single flag is being ignorantly banned. If people have a problem with the Confederacy and its heritage, the following flags will be banned as well as the flag for the original 13 colonies.
What about the British flag? Great Britain enslaved and killed more people than the Confederacy and they also implemented the slavery that is being placed on trial. How is it we are not all over that? The introduction and perpetuity of the use of slaves, begins and ends on British shoulders. That is a historical fact that is not being challenged.
The logic is flawed on this unintelligible crusade to pull down THE Confederate Flag. Pick up a book. Understand the history. Oh and by the way, you could not go into another country and demand a symbol of their history be taken down, even if it was a Nazi flag. The very freedom to be against ANYTHING is a right given to everyone able to make this ridiculousness possible.
All the uproar stems back to groups flying THAT flag under misguided principles. Again, in this country–at least for now–you can be as misguided as you want and say what you want to say, you have that right. This hyper-sensitivity could be applied to the LGBT community and the rainbow flag. I am sure there is a person on this continent who is offended to think about the representation of that flag. Apply the same logic that is attached with the vehement ignorance to take down THE Confederate Flag. It represents a difference in values that may or may not be offensive to a group of people.
Knowledge is power. If you jump on a bandwagon behind something without knowing the foreseeable liberties that will be lost in association to said cause, you are spitting in the face of what today is about. You were lucky enough to have been given these rights. Don’t be English enough to demand others give those rights up. You are putting others under the same tyrannical rule we fought so hard to get out from under.
”The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on Earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but only to have the law of nature for his rule.”
Corruption is a word people use but do not fully appreciate. Corruption means deviation from morality, honor and duty. It destroys political legitimacy. We have a system in place that puts trusted people in positions to make decisions for us and to keep our society the place it is. When that trust is severed for personal gain, we all lose. Not only have we been duped by a con-artist, but we have been robbed of our ability to discern who is for us and who be against us.
A case in point is my interest in the Billings Murder case. As a person who wants to not only understand the tragedy of the murder of these two people, but to understand how the disposition of the case could have gone so horribly wrong. What evidence led to the incarceration of 8 people whom the state claims to be guilty, when the initial evidence points to an entirely different direction? Whether you believe my questions are legitimate or not, if I am barking up the wrong tree, whose time am I wasting besides my own?
Victimology is essential to law enforcement. Why was this person killed? Was it greed? Jealous? Business? Insurance Money? These all help gauge who committed the crime. Bud Billings lifestyle must be understood. Here is an excerpt that perfectly describes the circumstance of this case.
“The Proximity hypothesis suggests that crime is less a function of life-style, but rather is based on close proximity…In a related concept is the equivalent group hypothesis, which points out that criminals and victims overall share similar characteristics because they are not entirely separate groups. People who commit crimes are probably at higher risk for victimization, both because of proximity to other criminals and because of their own lifestyles, which involve going out at night and associating with other young males who are involved in crime. In such associations, they place themselves at risk for becoming the victim of crimes themselves. Some support for this concept comes from research that indicates that crime victims as a group self-report a high amount of criminal activity. This hypothesis does not indicate that all victims are criminals, but that criminals as a group are at higher risk for becoming victims at some point because of the high-risk nature of their activities and associations.
So when I reached out to Andrea McDermott to gain some perspective as to what the situation around the family was at the time of the murders, I was surprised to get a response. It must be understood that I have reached out to everyone. Very few people respond for one reason or another. I told Andrea I got Bud’s FBI file last week. I am aware of the his conviction for trafficking in stolen vehicles in 1987 and some of the other “loosy lou” practices he had with odometers and cars that he acquired that “fell off a truck”.
I also shared my on-going suspicions about Justin and Blue. Andrea felt similarly. She asked me what I planned to do with the information she was giving me and I said I was looking for the truth, which is the truth. She reluctantly started sharing her perspective looking at the family from the standpoint of someone within the inner realm. After all, as Melanie’s lifelong friend, she was privy to many details that were innate to the family that strangers may never know. Certainly, she was unsettled by the dispensation of the case. There were elements that just did not jive with what she knew to be true and now her friend has been murdered and every fiber within her was screaming “there is a misrepresentation of the facts”. So when I asked questions, she answered because she believes people, who were at least accomplices in some capacity, got away with murder. She discussed things with Rick Outzen who wrote an article hinting at things but he never put the concerns she had out there. We all know Outzen’s integrity. He wants the truth but only if it does not reflect badly on his buddies, Eddins and Morgan, which this would.
Andrea began telling me about how Bud’s bad heart and age had made his dealings in the car business laborious. He planned on shifting it to Blue and Ashley. After beginning to do just that, everything started falling apart. He realized they did not have ability to maintain this business and his hands in money laundering, which is a known common knowledge fact among everyone around Bud, required that this business run in perpetuity to fulfill his obligations with Mexican criminal elements, or cartels. Ashley and Blue were going to get him killed, screwing with the Mexican’s money. So he took the business back from them. Blue and Ashley were on the verge of divorce. Blue was losing his “gravy train”. Bud’s intention was to sell off his business because that would be the only way out of his debacle.
Now the speculation comes in here. Do the cartels get nervous about the business changing hands with their participation woven into the fabric of the business or could Blue and Ashley have put their differences aside to try to reclaim the business from Bud? Either scenario creates a concern about Bud. Murder has been committed for far less motives than ensuring the perpetuation of financial stability by the cartel or Blue and Ashley.
Add another dimension to this. Justin. What is Justin’s story? He had a fight about a week before where he was relegated to a trailer on the property–not to be in the house. What was the fight about? We can imagine money or Justin’s future as a 20 year old. There are a number of different things that create friction between a father and his son. But what makes this situation different is the reasoning of this fight. This fight was about Justin inappropriately touching of one of the special needs girls. That was the fight and is a pattern of behavior that spans back to inappropriate acts with Nikki, Ashley’s daughter with CP. There was an inappropriate relationship that was there that made military school necessary to get Justin out of this house. At roughly $2-3K in SSI, state assistance via cash and food stamps PER KID, if someone in the house is “suspected” of inappropriate behavior, those kids are going to be taken by the State. Justin was a loose cannon and a liability to the family.
This becomes a Pandora’s box of issues within the house. Over the years, Bud was accused of inappropriate sexual conduct with some of the older girls in the house. Ashley made the statement to people that she had been raped as a young teenager. Sex abuse does not “pop” up in a house. It is typically learned behavior. People who were sexual abused will either sexually abuse others or they will internalize their rage and self destruct without proper therapy and in some case that happens in lieu of therapy. So to hear that Bud was accused in the past is not unbelievable because both Justin’s and Ashley’s actions are manifestations of sexual abuse and the common denominator is Bud.
Actions taken by Justin immediately after, led the people closest to him, Ashley, Patricia Bosco, and Cambra Lee, question whether he was involved. They all accused Justin to the police regarding his behavior prior to and after the murder, but no one has to take their word for it. Look at the Youtube videos. Within minutes of his parents’ brutal murder, Justin is calm, emotionless, talking a bullshit story and when tested, he has gunshot residue on his hands. A thing that is not easily transferable. I found this info on the FBI.gov site (https://leb.fbi.gov/2011/may/the-current-status-of-gsr-examinations).
…A comprehensive analysis of the sample can eliminate false positives, leaving GSR as the only possible source. In this area, recent research and studies in the search for false positives have only brought about increased confidence in characterizing particles as GSR.
Justin showed up after deputies arrived. That is documented. He had neither access to the gun at his parents’ home (as he contends) nor the bodies of his parents that are the only reasonable explanations of transfer gunshot residue. In the absence of that, the trace amount is pertinent. The deputies dismissed this because of an overgeneralized understanding of the crime scene and a flimsy excuse of handling of fireworks. In some cases, fireworks have some forms of gunpowder in them, but the testing used would not pick up this type of powder as it is organically, chemically different that true residue left by a fired gun. Primarily different in the shavings of metal that are microscopically ejected in the process of firing a gun. An excerpt from the following book, can more carefully explain this fact.

So you have these people in the inner circle of Bud Billings who had issues with Bud. To eliminate them WITHOUT investigating any angle or scenario pertaining to them is just reckless. Law Enforcement 101…the people closest are the ones who are more likely to be involved in any act of violence. They have intimate knowledge of people, routines, possible reactions and overall circumstances which can be exploited in opportunistic timing. That is not just TV logic. That is criminalistics.
Color me surprised when Andrea mentioned to me that she had been warned by that talking to me may not be a good idea. Why? I am just looking for some understanding of the crime? Who is ok with a justice system that allows people involved in a murder to go free? Is that really wrong to want to see he guilty people punished? In this case, implicated new people into the crime means that some of the people accused were wrongly accused. I say this because we have X number of participants in this crime. If you put the people that admit to being there, that corroborating evidence supports (ie not false confessions) and people now believed to be involved, knowing the circumstances of the family, the entire narrative put out begins to fall apart. The next question is why? Why was a false story with bits of truth sprinkled delivered to the media? Why would law enforcement (ie Sir David) release a story that was not exactly the truth?
Let’s go back to these pictures:
Outside of this case, how many times have you seen Sheriff Morgan hug and console a grieving family member after a murder? I would wager that number is zero. If the public did not know it prior to this case, these pictures speak volumes. There seems to be a personal relationship here. These people were not strangers thrown into a situation who were not known to each other. Pensacola is a small town. I can link together one particular link in Arety Kapatanis. Arety was a supporter of Morgan’s first election and she was close to Bud Billings. Had someone come to Morgan with the best interest of the family, in a PR situation, to ask that the family laundry not be aired in this investigation? Possibly.
I can understand that completely and maybe as a favor, Morgan agreed to spare a family close to his money (ie Arety) from the public ridicule of having to put the Billings’ dirty laundry in public like the career of laundering money, the entire business with the cartels, the “inappropriateness” of relationships in the family, Ashley’s marriage that is falling apart, Blue being halfway out the door after the business debacle and the other general family dysfunction. This is the general state of the family at the time of the murder, according to Andrea. Why wouldn’t she have reservations when none of these things have been looked at and had to have something to do with the intimacy of this crime?
The damnedest things about all of this is that Andrea, like myself, can’t seem to express these concerns because of a narcissistic Sheriff who slam dunked this huge case in less than 1 week’s time. He did this without a point person heading the investigation effectively, without records of interviews, without investigators conferring with each other and all of them on their own little mission within this three-ring circus and while Morgan is making hourly appearances on the news. Suddenly while people are scrambling around a phone call comes from a man who is concerned the van on tv is his that he sold to Terri Poff. But the truth of the matter is they have a van in close proximity to the crime scene that is abandoned. They already have it.
Being good investigators, someone checks it out. They approach a mentally unstable man who has been up for 3 days, according to a source close to the family, cooking meth in the van they are looking to investigate. Of course, his reaction was panic. Of course, he was trying to cover it and after seeing the news, he thinks he is going to be linked to this murder. He’s a paranoid schizophrenic. He would have thought he was being linked if the van had looked nothing like the one on tv. He was high and paranoid. During this time frame, Patrick’s (Gonzalez Jr.) name came up in the ECSO. This leads to a shit storm of speculation of involvement. Then after hours of interviews Lenny confesses to the crime in some way. He would have confessed to most anything after the number of hours of interviews, which were unlogged, catalogued or recorded in any way. This is the point where just enough truth and speculation merge with opportunity. I say that because no one could predict the reaction, sleep depravity and severity of the mental illness of Leonard Gonzalez Sr. That was pure luck and it was the catalyst that propelled the story of Morgan’s first official high profile case, that was solved with all the deputies going 60 different ways up until the moment Tama Barber swears to under oath and cross-examination, where they encounter people telling them about the suspects on tv. A measure of ye Old Sheriff that corrupts the investigation by having everyone and their mother seeing and knowing something. It also denies justice when people who haven’t even been questioned are put on tv and asserted as being the people who did this horrible crime. From that point on investigators chase the story on the news to which they find enough truth to railroad 8 people while leaving the people with the motives, Ashley, Blue, Justin & Cab, and people with incriminating evidence in their possession that cannot be explained away, Hugh Wiggins, who had the gun, bloody gloves and the only thing taken from the robbery. Would you find comfort if this were the case and it was your family on a slab? Why would anyone think Andrea’s questions or mine are a threat to anything? If we believed space aliens did this, no one would give it a second thought? But because the speculation IS possible and because this does make sense, it threatens the status quo of what Pensacola knows about this crime. It also dents Sir David’s armor that he shined up real pretty for the cameras. Would he really look back at his investigation the humbleness he should to find justice? HELL NO!
There was drama in the Senate last night, as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell struggled to extend a Patriot Act provision that supporters say allows the government to conduct mass surveillance of Americans’ calling records. (Opponents think the program is illegal regardless, but the legislative provision has become a focal point for the fight over the larger issue.) But his fellow Kentucky Republican senator, Rand Paul, led the charge to stop him. Wrote the Hill:
The battle between the two Kentucky Republicans spilled over on the Senate floor, with Paul using procedural tactics to force the chamber into an early Saturday vote. He then used his leverage to kill off McConnell’s repeated attempts to reauthorize the expiring National Security Agency (NSA) programs — first for two months, then for eight days, then for five, then three, then two.
It’s a tactic advocates of mass surveillance have used repeatedly in recent years:
- They drag their feet on legislation to curtail NSA spying authority until the last possible minute.
- They argue that it would be reckless to let old spying authority expire without an alternative to put in its place.
- Terrified of appearing soft on terrorism, members of Congress have repeatedly extended current authority without changes.
But it didn’t work this time, and for good reason.
The NSA program the Senate was debating last night, which collects phone records of every American, was never authorized by Congress in the first place. At least that’s the view of the Second Circuit Appeals Court, which ruled the program was illegal earlier this month. While the secretive FISA court disagrees with the Second Circuit, the latter’s ruling has stiffened the spines of those who believe the program was illegal from the outset.
And two years after the phone records program was revealed by NSA whistleblower Ed Snowden, the program’s advocates still haven’t produced any convincing evidence that the program makes us safer.
There’s broad agreement that the government should have access to the calling records of suspected terrorists, of course. But there’s no reason to think it’s helpful to collect the calling records of millions of innocent Americans just in case one of them happens to be a terrorist. And in particular, there’s no reason to think that a few days or weeks without bulk collection of telephone records will lead to a rash of terrorist attacks. The US government still has a number of ways to get the calling records of terrorism suspects — these mechanisms just involve more court oversight.
Finally, after years of repeating this tactic, it’s become clear that it’s just that — a tactic. Mass surveillance advocates are going to use it over and over to keep current law in place indefinitely. Only by saying no to short-term extensions and being willing to actually let the program lapse will reformers have the leverage to insist on serious reforms of the spying agency.
On October 28, 2014, Sheriff David Morgan presented a check to Gulf Coast Kids House for $50,000. This philanthropic gesture is posted on the ECSO’s Facebook page below.
The caption with the picture reads as follows: Joining Sheriff Morgan this afternoon were Pam Schwartz, Gulf Coast Kids House Board Chair, Debbie Ritchie and Stan Connally, Co-chairs of Captial Expansion for the Gulf Coast Kids House Board of Directors, and Stacey Kostevicki, Executive Director.
There is a short description of where the funds came from out of the Honorable Sheriff’s budget:
“The donation are provided by The State Law Enforcement Trust funds. Under the auspices of Florida Statute, Chapter 932.701-706, “Florida Contraband Forfeiture Act,” law enforcement agencies may seize and forfeit any contraband that have been used in the commissions of felonies to be used in the community.”
A couple of local articles thank local felons for this generous donations, which is a very noble way to think of such a donation. In researching the above mentioned, “Law Enforcement Trust” (LET) fund, after perusing the generous donations the Sheriff’s office likes to dole out to private charities in the area, this donation is conspicuously larger than the last 3 years donations to any other organization.
The 2 years prior, in particular, Sheriff Morgan donated a mere $500 each year. What drives such a sizable donation in the first 3 weeks of his fiscal year? This single donation is roughly 20% of his beginning budget in the LET fund of $250,000. The largest other donation in recent years was $15,000 to the National Flight Academy in March, 2014.
Keeping this in mind, the Pensacola News Journal broke the story on March 9, 2015 about Leah & Doug Manning being wanted as well as the arrests of Senior Deputy Mark Smith & Deputy Walter Thomas. The PNJ states:
“In late September or early October of 2014, Thomas allegedly visited spouses Leah and Douglas Manning. A victim allegedly identified the Mannings as “swingers” who had multiple sexual partners.
The victim said that Leah Manning invited her into a bedroom where she engaged in sex acts with Thomas while Douglas Manning recorded the abuse with his cell phone, according to the report.
The victim also reported multiple instances of abuse while visiting Smith in the summer of 2014. The incidents were reported through a child abuse hotline in February. Following an investigation, Smith and Thomas were arrested Friday.”
Being Sheriff Morgan’s biggest fan and knowing that no further investigation was done to see if there were any more victims or offenders within his department while also knowing through a confidential source, who spoke with personnel from the State Attorney’s office at Gulf Coast Kids House, that was baffled to find a LACK of zealousness to push such an investigation, I have to wonder if Sheriff Morgan wrote the biggest check to the state mandated child abuse advocacy agency in October, after the first complaints came in on Senior Deputy Smith, was this incentive money to keep the ECSO secrets?
This is purely speculation but looking into the timing of this phenomenal check and the investigation into the ECSO for sex offenders who wear badges, seems less than coincidental.
What do you think? Could this be the dirtiest secret in Escambia County?
In an unsurprisingly ostentatious manner, Doug Underhill, once again, starts slinging mud in retaliation to a civil suit filed April 10, 2015 against him for libel and slander. Mr. Underhill’s actions in this case, subverting the proper channels for the campaign violation that has been alleged against Gene Valentino’s campaigner, is paramount to being the little kid that tattles when his feelings get hurt. Only in Mr. Underhill’s case, his political subterfuge with the State Attorney’s office is the vehicle to exact his public retribution.
For a single misdemeanor offense, the public ridicule Mr. Marcille and Mr. Underhill doled out to an autistic campaign worker with 9 kids, is political bullying at its basest level. Normally, not only would this sort of thing NOT be in the news, it would not be tolerated by officials with a moral compass. Doug Underhill is like that bad ass, spoiled kid in the supermarket who isn’t getting his way, laying out in the floor for attention.
Pat yourself on the back now, Dougie; your stupid is showing.
********Extra, Extra, Read all about it!********
Equal in the eyes in the law, right?
Given enough time and rope, the Honorable Sheriff Morgan has finally done it. The high & mighty Morgan’s cell phone number was in Leah Manning’s phone. Now one might say that is innocent; however, I would argue you only cover something up that needs to be covered. Subsequently the investigation into other victims or offenders was “wrapped up” over a weekend. Mr. Morgan knew his name was eminently going to be revealed.
Sources within the ECSO reported that the Pensacola Police Dept pulled the raw data off the laptop and phone. Presumably establishing a checks & balance system, the raw data was turned over to ECSO to match up names to images and cell phone numbers with people. However, Sheriff Morgan has more enemies than friends. There were some hold backs on that data– just in case something came out of it. Pensacola PD officers held copies of all the info. Yes, Sir David has annihilated himself and surely his career. This information is not disseminated lightly. In the ECSO source after source, could confirm that this is common knowledge. No one will publicly come forward, because Morgan has a reputation of retaliation and as he said, “if there are any leaks, it will be a death sentence in that you will wish you were dead when I get done with you.”
I have faith that the fellow officers in the Pensacola PD will bring forth their proof or possibly some from the ECSO.
Furthermore Attorney General Pam Bondi has been contacted to investigate Mr. Morgan’s “public records policy”. The following 2 emails were for the same public records. Unmistakably I was required to pay $7,000+ for emails between he & David Craig in 2009. In the same breath, Beth Mederios, Public Records Officer, claimed to another request by a third party —for the same public records—that there are “NO SUCH RECORDS”. Which is it Sir David? EXTORTION OR FRAUD?
An Interview with a Victim of the Corruption in the ECSO
“My name is Michelle Clarke. I am the mother of Gavin Jake Clarke. We lived in Hammond, Louisiana. I have been stuck in a waking nightmare for the last 3 years. My son was taken by his biological father, Mike Cancienne Jr. According to Gavin’s paternal grandmother’s current husband (Not Mike Sr.), Gavin was taken by his father. Mike Jr for a trip to Florida but they never returned. This worried us all. Gavin’s grandmother had feared what Mike Sr. did to Gavin on a camping trip.
This scared me because Mike Jr. confided in me that his father had molested him as a boy. My baby communicated to his grandmother and myself that at his very young age of 5, Gavin had been molested by Mike Sr. My worst nightmare was realized. During this time my life started falling apart. It began with a car accident that killed my older daughter which almost killed me and then the subsequent death of my father in Pensacola. Mike Jr, Gavin & I moved to Pensacola to deal with my father’s passing. He had a house in Marcus Pointe. Mike and I started having problems. He began to beat me while he was on “blue ice” (different version of methamphetamine made popular in the series, “Breaking Bad”). He was making it as well. After an interwoven set of circumstances that resulted in Mike Jr. taking Gavin without having absolute custody, I found that Mike Jr. was living in Milton. At some point, they lived in a house across the lake in Marcus Pointe with a deputy Mark Smith (yes that Mark Smith). I called CrimeStoppers. Originally Deputy Walter Thomas called to follow up on my complaints of harassment of Smith and Mike Jr. I discussed the fact that my son was taken and not returned by his father Mike Jr. My complaint was ignored. No one wanted to get involved because this seemed like a non-crime that is way too common and law enforcement don’t want to get involved.
But the greater concern was that these people were pedophiles. Smith busted into my house and attempted to rape me. When I asked about my son, he said he would “take” him sexually too & just keep him. Another ECSO official, later identified based on a series of pictures I was shown, was Stephen Cappas. He initially was going to record Smith raping me. For some reason, he had a change of heart and talked Smith down off of me. When I called to report Smith again, Cappas followed up and said he would help me. However at that point I hadn’t realized the man on the phone was the man who pulled Smith off of me. A similar event happened later with Deputy Walter Thomas accompanying Smith. They were both high and got scared when they realized I knew their names.
Cappas strung me along for a while. He finally told me he’d investigated Gavin’s whereabouts and he was not missing. How did he know that? Did he know where my son was? He told me I was crazy and that none of my complaints were founded. Finally he stopped answering my calls. So my thought was Smith and Mike Jr. may have him. They had moved closer to the beach. I reached out to a couple of local people. I found out Gavin wasn’t in the DCF system and not in school in Escambia County. He wasn’t in Louisiana with his paternal grandmother.
I now know what a monster Mike Jr was, I immediately knew his roommate Smith must be the same. This entire time I’m trying to investigate where Gavin might be.
Could he have been in that house across the lake? If he was in Florida with his dad and his dad was across the lake from me, surely Gavin is there too. In a constant battle trying to get Smith to tell me where Gavin was, I became aware of Smith’s demons. He was on “ice” too. To give you an understanding of what happens to a person on “blue ice”, here is a description from 7-star-admiral.com as to why someone would want to use meth:
“The number one reason is sex. High levels of serotonin heighten mood and emotional responses- particularly one’s sex drive. It makes one “feel horny” with the result that their sexual inhibitions and limits are seriously curtailed. This, in combination with increased self-confidence and aggressiveness, may lead persons to engage in unprotected sex.”
Another article from Mamasite.com called “Suffer the Children”:
“But methamphetamine is unique among drug of abuse in its sexual effects. Meth causes intense sexual arousal, particularly in men. Pornography is a universal finding in a meth lab. The pre-occupation with sex is pervasive. Children in these homes are exposed to the pornography and inappropriate sexual activity of the adults with each other, but they are also exposed to direct sexual abuse, often violently so…Children of all ages are sexually abused by parents of both sexes, including rape and sodomy. Children are often prostituted to dealers and cooks as payment for meth. They are left alone with people who are likely to sexually abuse them. They are also used to produce child pornography which is a lucrative trade.”
The effects of this drug have a specific behavioral result. That was the side of Smith I saw when he tried to rape me. So without any law enforcement to be able to go to, I am coming to the people of Pensacola. Everyone knows Smith’s pedophilia and sexual misconduct. I was even told that my son was killed being forced to perform oral sex. His neck was broken; Mike Jr. took him to Louisiana and buried my baby in a backyard. Oh MY GOD! But the more I thought about it, the more I chose to believe this was just a way of psychologically terrorizing me and to get me to stop looking for my son.
Please if you have any information on Gavin or any way to expose this dangerous and corrupt Sheriff who seems to either not know what’s happening on his watch or he is allowing it. Please, Please stop them before they hurt more kids.
Since last week’s video release from the Escambia County Sheriff to the black community, a number of comments have been raised. The video has gone viral. One has to question, why a man running for office would willingly go on camera and essentially dismiss a huge demographic that he would need to be re-elected?
In doing some research, I went to Youtube and watched numerous publicly recorded speeches, interviews and press opportunities of the Honorable David Morgan for the last five years. I feel as if I got to understand Mr. Morgan and his politics. He repeatedly asserts statements about ECSO deputies arriving at scenes in certain neighborhoods and describing the hostily towards law enforcement by the members of the community over the crime that is taking place. While this situation may be overwhelming and no one is discounting that, he refers to these actions as “pack” mentality to try to intimidate the officer. Pack? That is a term used towards animals, wolves particularly. Is that what he’s equating these communities as—“packs”?
Another keyword for Sheriff Morgan is the “thug mentality” of the black community. That will also not win him any votes when he overgeneralizes all black people (not African-Americans, cause he believes that is offensive) as “thugs” and have a “pack mentality”. These characterizations intimate the fact he considers this community substandard to the rest of the community. Animalistic with criminalistic proclivity. That is the divisiveness that is in the community.
Here are some of the other quotes by the Honorable Sheriff on race and racial issues:
“I take issue with the time African Americans. We are Americans…The blacks that currently reside in the United States are not from Africa. Those sorts of terms society has chosen to use are divisive in nature. So what are the issues in the minority organizations within Escambia County? Many are real and many are perceived. I will tell you I think many are perceived. Here is why, again, let’s go back to the history of our nation and where we are today. Not that many years ago, the thought of electing an African American president would have been unthinkable in the United States of America. I would remind African American’s that you are a little over 13% of the entire population of the United States…..If those 13 % were the only ones that voted for President Obama, he would not have won that election….the statistics are if we are such a racist nation, why do we currently have an African American president?”
The inference of this video was the Sheriff Morgan was trying to smooth over race relations. What he actually accomplished was more proof of his racism. Another great speech of his was on the “Super-Predators” within the community. Here is an excerpt from that speech:
“The problem in criminal justice is system cannot be fixed by money…. The righting of the wrong is to start in the home. To get into our families, our homes, and yes our churches and start to bring back the training and integrity in our communities. Because we have raised an asocial generation. An asocial generation. Criminologists predicted this about 10 years ago, calling it the rise of the Super-predators. This again is that sociological problem called “anomie’. These are people who are not tethered by faith, family, or religion or community. ‘it’s about me” It’s about my wants needs & desires to the exclusion of anyone, everything and most assuredly institutions. We are seeing that today with the rise of the indiscriminate violence.”
Between both of these videos, the message seems clear. Sheriff Morgan has issues with the black community in Pensacola. He depicts them as “godless” heathens with no moral compass who cannot be stopped because they have no respect for authority or anyone, really. The blame for that he puts squarely on the families and communities.
My only question is how Mr. Morgan justifies his own stepchildren and their effect on society? For those of you who do not know, Mr. Morgan has 2 stepchildren, Greg & Antoinette Demetreon (sometimes known as simply Demetre) who are pornography producers and actors. They have also been charged in the past with “sexual racketeering” that was conveniently taken care of once Mr. Morgan became Sheriff. Wouldn’t they be characterized as “Super-Predators”?
Besides their Godlessness and lack of a morality, Mr. Morgan’s stepchildren can be classified in the other set of key words Mr. Morgan uses, because they are black (again not African-American). His children are black and criminals. As he insinuates, one goes with other. So if parents are responsible for their children role in society as adults, is Mr. Morgan willing to accept his failure as a parent to create some of the “thugs” with the “pack mentality” who happen to be “Super-Predators” that he holds solely responsible for the crime and downfall of Pensacola?
My Fellow Floridians, the time has come for all men to be vigilant & alert to charlatans. David Craig, Community Policing Coordinator/Communications Director/Major of the Escambia County Sheriff’s office is going to be starting his “crisis managing” by trying to fix yet another election. By his own words to Rick Outzen, he called Sheriff Morgan’s first victory spread with a HIGH degree of accuracy before anybody in the county voted. An amazing feat such as this and of course, his high quality work on Doug Underhill’s campaign, set a pattern of activity that is sure to be re-surfacing here soon. Being a self-proclaimed “crisis manager” (which encompasses providing false information to the media under any one of his fictitious titles at the Sheriff’s department or just a renegade crook), should make Escambia County voters weary of any info coming from this puppet of Sheriff Morgan’s. What is the old saying? He only lies when he talks.
It seems if you are an ethically challenged former certified officer who was neutered by FDLE for bad behavior, or a freaky sexual predator, you can get a job at the Sheriff’s office. Also if you are willing to brown nose enough about how pretty Sheriff Morgan is, he will create a job for you with hella-good pay (better than deputies) or he will create a job for your “girlfriend” like he did for Rick Outzen. As long as you are ok with being Morgan’s bitch, you too can have a cushy job like David Craig or Sena Maddison.
Dear Sheriff Morgan,
I am flattered that little ole me got under your skin. I wish you luck in finding a charge to use to arrest me as I know you have been looking to do so. I am no cyberbully. I am merely a citizen disgusted by the stench of your slimy reign as “sheriff”. You make a mockery of the job and if that hurts your feelings, MAN UP.
If you do find a way to arrest me, know the second, you have me arrested EVERY single thing I ever said about you will be legitimized by your panic and trying to silence me. I will be the martyr who will be the proof that you are trying to play king in Escambia County. I welcome the outcome. I have Marie Mattox to go to and I am not afraid to use her on you. She is wildly intrigued by your antics playing Sheriff.
FYI. Mr. Craig’s “drone” is coming down.
Also, I would not count on the show “See No Evil” with your pearly whites on the commercial airing anytime soon. I have emailed the producers sworn statements by your deputies about the mishandling of this case. You want to see? Here are some excerpts of your incompetency:
It’s funny how quickly you released all the surveillance video for the Billings Murder without regard to the people who would be most affected by the fallout, yet your little perverts who impregnanted one of 2 twin teenage girls are off limits? Yes, I know that is why this is what broke the story. One of your deputies, in the line of duty, impregnated a 17 year old girl. Proud aren’t ya Sheriff Morgan?
Telling the truth is not slander or cyberbullying. Have a good weekend. I know I will.
(you have not earned the right to call me by first name either.)
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/
