VMO2016 #7 Morgan Lives in a Glass House

In an Independent News Cover Story from Sept. 4, 2008, Rick Outzen writes:

“The Morgan campaign strategy was simple. ‘We made no secret that I was going to stand in front of people and tell the truth about the administration of this sheriff. I knew if we could get the information in front of enough people we would win,’ says Morgan. ‘We needed to communicate effectively that McNesby’s record needs a second look.'”

When I read this, I have to admit, I laughed out loud. Morgan has never stood up in front of ANY administration and told the truth about anything.  As we already substantiated, he lies on pathological basis. He claims any number of things including his own belief in term limits & not to elect him, should he go “stupid”, yet he then contradicts himself or flat out succumbs to arrogance and runs for a third term.

Sir David claims that McNesby’s record needs a second look, while his record shows that he gives ill-equipped officers guns to put 16 bulletholes in an unarmed suspect and his vehicle for reaching for a cigarette; he also infamously made newspapers for being ill-informed and arrogantly making broad, generalizing statements like “it’s witchcraft” or that Muslims are like Nazis. That is his record.

His fiduciary accountability is questionable in that he donated money that is not his in return for monies funneled into his campaign like Brownsville; this is researched and documented by CJ’s Street Report.

So while McNesby had questionable ethics, Sir David has far exceeded him in that race. His minion David Craig even eluded to the fact that Morgan stole the election over McNesby.

In the same article mentioned above, this is another excerpt that is curious:

10805719_10204342255690157_5612372976506644598_n

‘”We 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.”

How could anyone possibly know they were going to win going into election day? Or exactly what the spread would be?

McNesby may have done some unethical things but it appears Morgan’s first official criminal act was manipulating election results.

 

VMO 2016 #6-Sheriff Morgan is All About Double-Talk

Sir David is the King of Contradiction, or Hypocrisy, Flip-Flopery, if you like. When he gets questioned about something he said, his favorite excuse is “I did not say that” or “What I said was taken out of context”. That within itself shows the lack of responsibility for words he careless uses regarding that come back to bite him in the ass.

  1. Running for Sheriff  
    When Sir David filed for Sheriff, I had to laugh, because he spoke to the Pensacola Biz Net Aug 4, 2011  & he made the following statement:

“I believe in term limits from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet….. You lose touch with reality when you’re spending other people’s money.  So that’s why I’m a big advocate of term limits…..term limits.I believe in term limits from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet… We have to stop putting our county down…we have alot of problems in Escambia County. Take the Billings Case…..I encourage you to follow that case through to end of the last prosecute, then ask for the public record of how much it cost us, the taxpayers. It cost hundreds of thousands of dollars if not millions of dollars”

“I would like to do a second term as the Sheriff of Escambia County but let me make this statement to this group as I make to a lot of these groups, I believe in term limits from the top of my head to the soles of my feet.  If I go stupid and run for a third term do not vote for me, do not vote for me…. Because you need to cycle people out of these positions.”-Sheriff David Morgan, 2010

2.  Billings Case:  DEA involved? 

6cf7c-15slay190

Here is an article from NorthEscambia.com that sums up the mystery.

Is The DEA Involved In The Billings Case- - NorthEscambia.com.clipular

Is The DEA Involved In The Billings Case?

July 16, 2009

There are conflicting reports this morning as to whether or not the DEA has become involved in the Billings murder investigation.

“As Escambia County Sheriff, I have no knowledge of any DEA involvement in this case,” David Morgan said Wednesday night. “I have not spoken to any representative of the Drug Enforcement Agency today.”-CNN

But CNN was reporting early Thursday morning that the DEA was on the case. CNN quotes a DEA spokesman in Miami, David Melenkevitz, as saying that the Escambia County Sheriff’s Department did call for the DEA’s assistance.

David Melenkevitz, a spokesman for the DEA, said his agency is assisting with the investigation but would not comment further. He said Escambia County officials have also sought help from other federal agencies including the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. —CBS News  July 16, 2009

Even Sir David’s repeater (not reporter), Rick Outzen, who has claimed that Sir David is the best sheriff Escambia County has had in years wrote this:

It has been a week since Bud and Melanie Billings were killed. The seven men who the authorities believe are responsible and one female accomplice have been arrested. The media wants to know why, what was the safe taken from the home and why are the FBI and DEA possibly involved.

CNN is reporting early Thursday morning that the DEA is on the case, despite denials by Sheriff Morgan the prior night on Anderson Cooper 360. They say that David Melenkevitz, a DEA spokesman in Miami, has said that the Escambia County Sheriff’s Department did call for the DEA’s assistance.– Rick Outzen, Rick’s Blog, July 16, 2009

Now if this is a humdinger as Sir David had claimed and the alphabet soup (FBI, ATF, FBI & Homeland Security) were participants, then Sir David may not be the BIGGEST LIAR IN ESCAMBIA COUNTY (He’d still be in the top 10, if not the top 5). Here’s why I say that, they actually responded.  Now anyone can call these agencies and ask for assistance, but they may not actually show up. But there are credible sources saying, as early as 1 week after the murders that the DEA was brought in, contrary to Morgan’s statement.  There appears to be solid reasons that the DEA was a participant in this case.

 To end speculation, I have proof of their involvement.

 Corroborated by an FBI source, there were 2 ACTIVE DEA investigations into Byrd & Melanie Billings at the time of their murder. DEA only gets involved on high level drug cases. They don’t show up for insignificant possession/personal use cases where there is no chance of trafficking. Their presence speaks for itself and is contrary to Sir David’s version of events.

*Also, these DEA cases, one initiated in 2005 and the other in 2007, are still, TODAY, active investigations.

Think about that for a moment.

3.  Super Predator/ Thug Culture is the Downfall of America

“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?”

When asked for a response to the assertion that racism is merely a perceived social problem, Sir David responded with a statement to Channel 3 WEAR that his comments were taken out of context and  that those who propagate information about his rant have “a motive”. 

And the best statement ever out of his mouth:

I challenge someone to find an incident where anyone could have said that I am racist.”

The irony is every word he said prior to that statement is a jab at every ethnicity. He uses statistics to belittle the African-American people and remind them they are but 13% of the population. You can add hypocrite to his tile of racist.

4. Rotary Club assertion that Muslims are like Nazis.

CJ'S STREET REPORT- Pastor Lee Middleton's Pregnant Daughter Slammed Down, Hogtied, and Wife Arrested--A Deputy's Tall Tale.clipularDr. James Scamanaci, known for his blog, CJsstreetreport.blogspot.com reported for DailyKos  the following:

In the wake of two Escambia County Sheriff’s Office deputies firing 15 bullets at Mr. Roy Middleton in late July 2013, which created a national story, Sheriff Morgan delivered prepared remarks before the Rotary Club of Pensacola.  The Pensacola News Journal carried the Public Information Office’s edited version of the Sheriff’s remarks.

Sheriff Morgan:  ‘Muslims are Nazis’

At the 3:45 mark of the uncut version that the Street Report came to possess, Sheriff Morgan, after recommending to his Rotary Club audience reading Winston Churchill’s three-volume memoirs, Sheriff Morgan stated the following:

“And what you’ll find striking, and I find striking by the way, is the policy of appeasement that we go through in an almost a cyclic mode through our communities and our societies.  An appeasement across the board.  We intend to appease crime; we intend to appease political opponents; we intend to appease those who have different religious beliefs than we do.  And the frightening thing about these volumes is this, if you changed NAZI to Muslim, you’ll have a terrific eye opener…”

5. Triple Murder of the Smith Family

eab16-1016066187-ritualistic-killings-may-be-tied-to-blue-moon

In a press release, 5 days after the bodies were found and all news was hushed, Sir David made this eloquent statement regarding the brutal murders.

“It’s witchcraft, I’ll say that right now. The method of the murder, blunt force traumas, slit throats, positions of bodies and then our person of interest has some ties to a faith or religion that is indicative of that. Those of you that follow any of that will also note that at the time of death we believe on Tuesday it also coincides with what’s referred to as a blue moon, which occurs every three years.”

In response to that ignorant statement, every Wiccan, homeopath, occult personality came forward to refute this statement of “witchcraft”. I contacted Michelle Belanger, occult expert, known for her work on “Paranormal State” as well as her writing on the subject. When I spoke to her she was baffled how a person of Sir David’s authority and assumed intelligence would make such a reckless statement. She made 2 videos for YouTube regarding Sir David.  Here is a bit of what she had to say:

michelle.jpg

 “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.”

Sir David’s response: “It was a misconception.”

Sheriff- 'Witchcraft' Comments a Misconception - YouTube.clipular

**Sidenote: Morgan claimed the family was reclusive and that hampered investigation. When WKRG Channel 5 out of Mobile interviewed the Smith Family about the witchcraft factor, the family denied there was anything suggestive of Blue Moon or witchcraft based on the information given to them. They also refuted Morgan’s claim of the family being reclusive.**

The fact in this murder is that one of the sons is a cybercrimes expert at Homeland Security. Sir David said that they KNOW that fact wasn’t the motive for murder. He still says that theory was still “in play,” but that his office had also investigated financial gain and Richard Smith’s connection to the Department of Homeland Security as possible motives.

Specifically, the way he phrased it in an exclusive with WEAR-TV 3’s Amber Southard, who is now his new Public Information Officer that out earns most lietenants at the ECSO, was there were three possible motives: National security, witchcraft, monetary gain. Two are still on the table, as there were no national security implications involving the death of 49-year-old Department of Homeland Security employee Richard Thomas Smith.

 No chance that he’s wrong on the Homeland Security angle  but witchcraft is possible?

It hurt my head to even put that sentence together.

Sir David has many more loosy goosy “out of context”, “misunderstood” or “wrong perception” excuses. This is just the highlight reel, folks.

VMO2016 #5-Sheriff Morgan’s Money Handling Skills Need Attention

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In September 2015, Sir David jeopardized the Filipino-American Club’s tax exempt status. As a 501(c)3 non-profit, they have to abstain from political activity in any form and be complete apolitical . Yet they rented out their building, which they own, to the Republican candidate Morgan. This is violation that the IRS does not let slide easily. This was one of many of Morgan’s “karaoke night” fundraisers which fellow blogger Dr. James Scamanaci was escorted out of by Chief Deputy Haines even though he paid the $10 donation entrance fee to the event.  Yes, I said entrance fee and donation in the same sentence.

But the onus was not merely on the Filipino-American Club, Sir David should have done his due diligence to not put a supportive organization under the gun for involvement in his campaign, but he didn’t.  Not that anyone is surprised.

Florida Statute 106
(b) Candidates, political committees, affiliated party committees, and political parties may not solicit contributions from any religious, charitable, civic, or other causes or organizations established primarily for the public good.
(c) Candidates, political committees, affiliated party committees, and political parties may not make contributions, in exchange for political support, to any religious, charitable, civic, or other cause or organization established primarily for the public good.

But WAIT, THERE’S MORE……

 

On October 27, 2015, the Irish Politicians Club hosted a fundraiser with high dollar people, supposedly in attendance, like Sandy Sansing & Jim Reeves.  These guys give and give big.  Yet look at the total amount of contributions reported for this “high dollar” event.Candidate Reports - Candidate Log In.clipular (3)

Somehow with all the money people hosting Sir David, he only walked out of this fundraiser with $100 cash from 1 couple. Really? No one else gave to Morgan ?  The cost of the invitations and flyers alone wouldn’t be worth it.  For just $100.  I would suspect that the money NOT REPORTED that changed hands or perhaps the fact that out of all the people there who supposedly hosted this event, Sir David failed to impress, thus not receiving funds.  Either way, there is something rotten going on and it is a pattern of behavior for Sir David.

Given that Greg Marcille had Greg Fink arrested for failing to have a disclaimer on the bottom of a flyer, it stands to reason that NOT REPORTING CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS & ACCEPTING FUNDS IN VIOLATION OF FLORIDA STATUTES ie Filipino-American Club.

So which is it did Sir David just blow an opportunity to wow the elite of the community or did he embezzle the funds he collected?  I say embezzle because money off the books is embezzlement.

VMO 2016 #4: Allows Deputies to be Thugs

#4-Allows Deputies to be Thugs

Once again, even though it goes back to leadership, this behavior of letting deputies like Thomas, Smith, the Von Ansbach Young clan, Haines, and the various other Morgan men who do what they damn well please, there will never be any respect for the department. People in society will only live up to the standard they have to and with deputies doing what they please by allowing sex offenders access to children or bailing them out while trying to justify these actions are seen as playing favorites and creating a double standard that could be defined as law enforcement vs common man or for the sake of argument, white man’s crimes vs black man’s crimes. All the deputies mentioned are white.

Race is not always the card being played, however, when the appearance that it COULD be is enough to throw the gauntlet down on race relations in Escambia County. This sort of double dealing of justice makes  it possible to offer the theory that race is the motive more so than criminality. Isn’t that just what Escambia County and Pensacola needs–a reason to validate suspicions of ingrained racists within the higher levels of  law enforcement?

Haines and the Von Ansbach Young clan believe they are above the law. Hell before they took it down, Erin Ambrose had pictures of her schmoozing with Circuit Court Judges and their families on a social level. This sort of relationship creates a conflict of interest and unfortunately there is far too much of that already. Fraternizing with clients, customers, co-workers and colleagues gets most people fired.

 

Why is that? Because of the fact, as humans and “friends”, people want to be accepted. That need allows criminal beh10473866_10204243856329120_2942019695593477156_navior or character flaws to be ignored due to friendship rather than being impartial and applying justice equally. But don’t take my word for it. Look at Ms. Ambrose, the Von Ansbach Youngs and poor Marbc64e-escambia2bsheriff2527s2bk-92btops2bat2bnational2btrials2b-2bstuder2bcommunity2binstitute-clipulark Smith, why should they give up their fun times together because of a little bit of ethics?  Not everybody dines with a judge and a pedophile at one table.

VMO 2016 #3 Morgan has made Escambia County & Pensacola Look Like Reality TV

#3 Morgan has made Escambia County & Pensacola Look Like Reality TV

Any of those closely associated with Sir David or has been in proximity to him when a live camera was within earshot can vouch for his, “kid in a candy store” persona that makes him the butt of national journalists and late night television. He is a legend in his own mind.

If in doubt look at the following photo op’s that Sir David has been so proud of:

       

These are just a few of his portfolio.

              

Even though he is the probably the most photogenic sheriff Escambia County has ever had, he most certainly is the dimmest as well. Here are just a few remarks Morganisms that make Escambia County so proud:Morganisms

First off, late me take issue with the title ‘African American’. We’re Americans. I am fourth generation Welsh. I or my family do not pretend to be nor do we say we are Welsh Americans. We are Americans. I was not born in Wales and the blacks that currently reside in the United States of America are not from Africa. Those sorts of terms that society has come to use are divisive in nature. So what are the issues in the minority community in Escambia County? Many are real, and many are perceived, and I will tell you that I think most of them are perceived and here’s why. And again, let’s go back to the history of our nation and where we currently are today. Not too many years ago, the thought of electing an African American president would have been unthinkable in the United States of America and I would remind black Americans that you are a little less than 13 percent of the entire population of the United States. Less than 13 percent–and now that’s every man, woman and child in the United States of America of black ancestry. Had every one of those people been voter eligible only 13 percent could have voted for President Obama, but President Obama has won two elections as President of the United States. Now what does that mean? That means a whole host of white people, and Hispanic people and Asian people and American Indians cast a vote for President Obama. The statistics are that we’re such a racist nation, why do we currently have an African American president? Why was General Chappie James the first four-star black general and why was General Colin Powell promoted to Chief of Staff and later to Secretary of State? Why do we currently have an Attorney General, Eric Holder, who is also a black American? So I would tell you statistically to anyone who makes an argument that the United States is a racist nation is focusing on specific incidences of where we might have had problems with race relations, but it certainly does not paint any organization or any individual any nation is racist. We have unfortunately, in the black community, embraced a “thug culture. One that agrandises foul language, shooting cops, abusing women….”

“I say this with great sadness, three months ago within a month period, I fired two officers for falsifying police reports. They falsified accident reports. When the information came in, my approach–when I took office, I told folks, I have one cardinal sin and that’s when you lie. When you lie, you’re done in law enforcement. What you’ve done, you’ve indicated to me that you have a proclivity of not telling the truth, what you call perjury in criminal justice system. If we can’t trust you, when society can’t trust you to tell the truth about the facts of the case as you see them, then you are of no use to law enforcement because our society and our criminal justice system is based on the truth. If we’re all about lying in business or government, then what kind of society is that? “

“those of you in the white community must overcome your fear of being labeled a racist. Because that’s what we all fear in trying to open a dialogue with minority communities. It’s when we enter that first juncture of the disagreement we will be called a racist. Anybody want that label?”

“you couldn’t just waltz into a second-hand shop with military memoriabilia and buy a medal of honor and put it around your neck. Why? Because you didn’t earn a medal of honor. That shows such dishonor and disrespect to the men and women who earned that honor through, most of the time, sacrificing their lives. They’ve passed (legislators) it and it’s called the Stolen Valor Law. “


“I believe there must be term limits. IF I GO STUPID AND RUN FOR A THIRD TERM, DON’T VOTE FOR ME. (laughter in crowd). I’m serious. I need to go back out into the real world and learn how to use a checkbook.” 8/4/2011- Pensacola BizNet-Cordova Lanes

Speaking of books about Winston Churchill…”… The frightening thing about these volumes is this: If you switch the word “Nazi” to “Muslim”, you’ll have an intersting eye opener with history and with the way the world is progressing today.”

“those of you in the white community must overcome your fear of being labeled a racist. Because that’s what we all fear in trying to open a dialogue with minority communities. It’s when we enter that first juncture of the disagreement we will be called a racist. Anybody want that label?”

Two weeks ago, two Florida deputies shot 15 rounds at a 60-year-old unarmed Florida man who was looking for his cigarettes in his mother’s car, parked in his own driveway.  Sheriff David Morgan of Escambia County hastily took to the airwaves to explain that “the tragedy of this is the noncompliance to the directions of law enforcement officers….Right now we are comfortable from a training perspective that our officers did follow standard protocols. [t]his is a common occurrence. We live in a very violent society.”–Dahlia Lithwick, TheSlate.com

“It’s witchcraft. I’ll say that right now. Well, again, 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.”

 Truly I could go on for pages, but you get the point. His words of wisdom, most of which were said in front of a national audience, denigrates the people of Escambia County.

VMO 2016 #2- Sheriff David Morgan is a FRAUD!

Sir David claims to be knighted, which Dr. James Scaminaci proved was not as Morgan claimed. He misrepresented himself as being a leader of a military unit that he did not lead. He wears his medals on his dress uniform, in a fashion that is out of step with the military honor format. He is simply a false facade with no credibility which is apparent in the chaos of his department.


Leaders lead from the top down. The lowest of men must be a representation of them all. That is how it works. If you have deputies that sex offenders who still have a job, that conveys the affinity the leaders over those deputies have with their officers. It is very much a parent-child relationship. Look at the kid and you will see the parents. Especially in Escambia County, the reflection of the men in the community is that they are not doing their job; they are bullies with badges; they victimize people routinely. Now it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that as long as these people with bad behavior are allowed to keep their jobs in light of unethical, immoral and flat-out criminal practices, that either Sir David is blind or he is facilitating everything these deputies do.

VMO 2016: A campaign of 365 reasons to oust Morgan/Eddins/McNesby Ticket

Today begins a year long campaign to educate Escambia County and residents of the First Judicial Circuit (Escambia, Santa Rosa & Okaloosa Counties) as to 365 things Morgan/Eddins administration has done throughout their tenure that will leave you wondering how they still have jobs today.  I will be using the candidates Morgan/McNesby as virtually interchangable. Ronnie Mac was in office when much of the corruption became prevalent and when asked about correcting the problem now, he personally told me he wasn’t interested in all that.  So clearly he isn’t concerned with the corruption now, so you can expect more of the same with him. Not a big surprise. It does conveniently give me a chance to categorize, Eddins, Morgan, and McNesby as the Unholy Triad of Escambia County.

Also, please understand the problems in Escambia County are of one mind. Morgan makes personal vendetta arrests and Bill Eddins holds on to it just long enough to smear the person’s name, at which point, he declines to prosecute. Morgan cannot act without Eddins consent. If Morgan arrested someone that Eddins refused to prosecute, it would be meaningless. The devilish duo are in tandem in some sort of bizarre alliance to cover each other’s asses. Morgan and McNesby are merely interchangable.

So everyone is clear. I am reminding the citizens of 365 incidents that show the leadership of Escambia County today, made so by Sheriff Morgan and State Attorney Bill Eddins.

Let’s get this show on the road……………
