Another Dead Sparrow………

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. 

Pamela Laverne Long Wiggins died on July 22, 2015. She was the only woman convicted in the Billings Murder case.
In early June this year, I found a dead sparrow at the foot of my deck.  Now I don’t know if anyone knows  the superstition of the sparrow. There are variations. Like, if a sparrow flies in your house, someone will die.  Another on is if a sparrow knocks on your window and looks you in the eye, this is a message of death to come.  A dead sparrow is the most traditional message though. Sparrows die if they are abandoned by the flock. The implication is that if a child of God separated from God, it will die as well. One cannot live without Him or his flock.
This may seem silly but, in fact, I knew the symbolism and the fact I have what seems like a million cardinals, robins, finches etc in my yard and have not seen a sparrow. The dead sparrow is conspicuous when you see no sparrows. The timing was, again, uncanny. There was a great deal of death looming. Leonard (Lenny) Gonzalez Sr was dying and I had just found out that Pam was dying as well. Indeed, death was coming. The middle of June Lenny died, as no surprise and with some sense of relief, as his suffering was great.  Last week Pam died.
This is a troubling thing because with her death a bunch of truths die. Pam was played by people and the very most by her would-be husband Hugh Wiggins, who hung her out to dry. Pam got an immunity deal. Did anyone know that? She got a similar deal to that of Hugh. Then the State of Florida hit her with additional charges not covered in the “deal”.  Mighty white of them. Hugh orchestrated this deal in the illusion of keeping her safe. She was a part of what happened to Billings’ to some degree. She knew what happened.  She was seen looking over a fence after the murders looking for Justin Billings. This was seen by people but never noted. What did Justin have to do with this?  Considering he had gunshot residue and the emotional composure of a judge right after his parents were brutally murdered, I would say a great deal. Also, the people closest to the family and Justin days after came back to Sheriff’s office to say that after his interviews with deputies, Justin said and did things to make people believe he was involved.  This is never mentioned by Sheriff Morgan as he is consoling Ashley Markham on press conferences, who also believed that her brother, Justin was involved.  Again, not ever mentioned.

WALA wrote this about the Sir David and his statements in the Billings Murder case.

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.  

Commentary:

1.  I absolutely agree about the leadership. The subordinates follow what they see. In the case of all the bad behavior of the deputies as of late, one can only infer what the “leader” is doing.
2.  If there was no evidence that Billings was “ever involved in criminal activity”, then the deputies really were Keystone Cops. Bud Billings was a loan shark if nothing else, but we all know he was into much more. If there was NO sign of criminal activity, then that was the first red flag. Someone was covering up a hell of a lot.
3. Sir David was in office just 6 months when his glorious moment came. 9 satellite trucks? Morgan said. “I know on at least three occasions they broke into regular programming for updates on the Billings.”One can only speculate the tremendous pressure that came with this case. It is the biggest case since the King Bros.–probably bigger.

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.

  • 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.
“The human understanding when it has once adopted an opinion draws all things else to support & agree with it.”–Sir Francis Bacon

 

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.

A Brief Discussion with Fred Levin

UPDATE:

Candidate Reports - Candidate Log In.clipular
1410047973000-bilde-1

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.

Honor, Patriotism and Ignorance

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.”
Samuel Adams
