Morgan Fiddles While Escambia Burns

Tuesday was a unique day. There were multiple serious crimes going on and Morgan holds a press conference on a cyberstalker. What?

While I understand the cyberstalker may have harassed people and made them uncomfortable, does that really compare to the stabbing, shooting and bank robbery happening in real time?

This is a perpetuation of Chief Haines’s trolling on social media to tattle tale on deputies instead of focusing on the rising crime rate.  Hello!!! There are things that are happening IN THE community that they seem to not see.

Tsar Nicholas II

 

 

 

 

This reminds me of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia. He is told that people are storming the palace and he tosses the telegram because it’s time for tea.  Eventually the people, who he never really saw, were his demise.

 

 

 

 

 

This is an example of the disconnect of the administration (Morgan & Simmons).  Or this could be blatant manipulation. Morgan parades a non-violent criminal around who a fairly new criminal enterprise. He makes sure not to acknowledge the violent crime that plagues the community. In the 40’s, this tactic was used as propaganda tool by Hitler. He played news stories of the German wins, when in reality, they were defeats. Is this really the kind of community people want to live in?

The reason the local news doesn’t cover this goes back to the “Witch” murders in 2015. Sir David was ambushed by a reporter in the ECSO.maxresdefault.jpgHe was from WKRG channel 5, but despite that fact, Morgan believed the news director, Kim Wyatt, put this man up to the aggressive tactic of following Morgan through the ECSO and outside despite the fact Morgan dismissed him. This doesn’t show Morgan in a good light and he lashed out

.  Kimberly_Wyatt.jpgAccording to sources close to the situation, Morgan’s ire at Ms. Wyatt had him assign a plain clothed deputy (who recently got promoted) to follow Ms. Wyatt. He then called the GM of WEAR and asked if he knew where Ms. Wyatt was, because he did. This is the epitome of coercion. Since then Channel 3 has not made any attempts to portray Morgan in a “tainted light”.  Morgan strong-armed the GM and stalked the news director over a perception of a situation that may or may not have been true.

How is this “momentum”?  Is this the Escambia County of the future?  A community where this severity and frequency of crime is the norm and a thug controlling other thugs for his own personal agenda…..but hey who cares….he talks a good talk.

 

Doug Underhill: Eroding Pensacola

My last post on Underhill resulted in the almighty Sheriff producing a video to refute the claim that the Perdido substation was closing. Sir David is using semantics here. That substation is effectively a back-up or satellite station; the ECSO is still in possession of it but no one reports there. Now, it appears the police presence in that area is minimized. The Sheriff claims it is due to the shifts in crime. However, the trends according to the crime map of calls responded to in the county shows a consistently higher rate of crime on that side of town.
But my point is, I pointed a finger at Underhill and he tried to create damage control by contacting the Sheriff and then the Sheriff making a video.  Underhill was trying to minimize my message.  The problem is you can’t pass off a zebra as a horse. The situation is what it is. There is no spin to be done. Meanwhile there are other issues of greater importance such as the Osceola community’s sidewalk problem in which Underhill has ignored wholly.
Underhill has a history of trying to manipulate the community. The following post clearly shows that.

________________________________________________________________

Excerpts from November 21, 2016 in Sandspaper.com titled Underhill Lays Ambitious Aims for Escambia:

Underhill envisions looking at Escambia’s budget with fresh eyes, approaching it from a “zero-sum” perspective. And he would like to see the county move from what he describes as “personality-based politics” to a more “process-based” style of governance….. Because when that’s a part of the discourse about whether or not an idea is good, really what you’re saying is ‘I know this person and so I trust this person, and so I’m not even going to look into the merits of the idea, it’s just coming from somebody I trust.’

Commentary: I have no problem with the “zero-sum” perspective. It is practical; the problem is the last part of the statement–“Personality Based Politics”–is where I have take immense issue.

“Personality based politics” is a fancy phrasing of the “good ole boy system”.  It essentially means people are electing people they know and like regardless of qualifications.  Here’s the problem: that is a basic tenant in politics. If people don’t “like” you, you don’t get elected.  Take the Nixon-Kennedy debate. On the radio, Nixon was considered the winner because of his ideas; however, the television viewers thought Kennedy won by a landslide. Why did that happen?

Even though Kennedy had less quality to his speech, he delivered it with charisma that television viewers took to immediately. Let’s take the more relevant, David Morgan in his “landslide” victory. People elected him because of his persona that he portrays, not his achievements; not his shady finances; not his increasingly growing crime stats; not because of his complete loss of employee respect. None of that mattered because he flashed his “$30K” smile and put his face in as many places as possible. His personality (publicly only) won him the election and is what kept Underhill in his position because he is Morgan’s bitch.

The hypocrisy of his statement is only half the disturbing part of all this.

You may recall, we were being pushed to purchase the old AES building on W Street, north W, it’s just south of the Pentecostal church. We were under pressure to purchase that, for some exorbitant amount of money. It’s just steel shell building with a stucco facia on it. And we were needing to buy that for our corrections department — ‘Because we got people working at desks out in the hallway.’ Ok? That was Tidwell that said that.
I said, ‘Ok, well, show me.’ You know how many desks were out in the hallway that people were working on? That’d be zero.
Ok, that’s called an ‘Escambia-fact.’ It’s an emotional thing, it sounds pretty meaningful, but when you actually peel back the layers it’s not there.

His article continues to belittle the Escambia citizens in that he talks of “Escambia facts”, which are facts people claim but when evidence is looked for after the fact, it proves to be untrue. Now, let’s understand something. The statement was made about people in the hallways—time passes—Underhill responds. What happened in the time passing? In my experience, Underhill most likely corrected the matter through others and then called out the complainant after the issue was quickly covered or fixed. He has does this in situations I have called him out on-twice so far; so this is a pattern of how he handles things. This “Escambia fact” was indeed a fact when it was brought up—I would bet the farm on that, but Underhill manipulated the situation to make him the good guy and the complainant the bad guy.

Why? Why not man up and fix the issue and not cast stones on the people in the community? It is the actions of a man trying to prove his worth by belittling others. His greatest asset should be showing humility and fixing issues rather than covering them up.

The most disrespectful thing implied in this article is the portrayal of the community by someone who does not “get it”. There is a thing in the South that is a fundamental undercurrent of the culture–Southern Honor. Southern honor is what makes Southerners hold integrity as the pinnacle of everything. Southern honor says your name is all you have and you have to live up to every single person who carried that name from the beginning. We don’t take that lightly. We honor others that show that same respect, which might be construed as “personality based politics” because we do look to the people who appear to be most like us. Southern honor is ingrown in every person who ever grew up with lack. When you have nothing but your name to hold onto, it becomes everything.

Underhill doesn’t get it. He’s seen as an outsider because he doesn’t carry this trait. Morgan feigns this and uses against the community but Underhill doesn’t get it. He can’t grasp the culture of the people he is ruling over. Look at some of the comments on social media. He ignored the Osceola community’s concerns with flooding; he looked to force out the Tomato Man and Georgio’s Greek trailer. People who have been figures in the community that beloved by most. Why?  Here is Underhill’s response to Stuart Kaplan’s questioning of the food truck, Tomato Man issue:

Stuart,
Please, try to get a handle on some basics of a civilized society. There have to be some simple standards, or are we advocating for pure anarchy? The County is very receptive to food trucks, and they prosper throughout the County, with no problem meeting our simple standards.

Why is it that a citizen who expects the rules to be followed and calls code enforcement deserves your profanity and bile? Moreover, while you guys rant about the oppressive government in everyone’s business are you simultaneously ranting about how the accident on the bridge last week was the government’s fault? Y’all always fuss about the accidents on the Key and say we need a four lane. Considering that almost every accident on the island involves intoxication, distracted driving and/or excessive speed, aren’t you advocating for a $100 Million government expense to overcome failures in personal responsibility?

I know that those who long for the good ole days of corruption and privileged access have a hard time with this, but in Escambia today and for the forseeable future, “One set of rules applies equally to everyone all the time.”
Respectfully,
Commissioner Doug Underhill

This is a disrespectful response that doesn’t do anything but turn blame back around. He twists facts to make him look like he person being victimized; What did he say that was productive or doesn’t focus on blame?  ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!

Let’s apply the rules of ethics that Underhill broke when he had the Sheriff endorse him on camera.  UNETHICAL! Yet when it was brought to the Florida Ethics Committee, no fault was found. Yet the canons state:

Fla. Code Jud. Conduct, Canon 7A(1)(b) Except as otherwise authorized, a judge or candidate may not publicly endorse or publicly oppose another candidate for office.

Yet we have this:

Morgan endorses Underhill for Escambia’s District 2

Underhill does as he wants while ignoring his constituents, belittling the culture of the people and recklessly speaking about things to which he has no knowledge…ie the sociological culture of the South & Southern Honor.
Might I suggest a good read for Mr. Underhill? Southern Honor: Ethics And Behavior In The Old South by Bertram Wyatt-Brown
The irony in all this is that Underhill wants respect because of his role as an elected official. He also claims that merit not personality should garner that respect. Yet his merits have not garnered JACK. The only reason people are cordial to this jackass is because of the culture of the community….the same culture Underhill belittles continually.

PREDICTION: The first words out of Underhill’s mouth will be that I have no idea of what I’m talking about. However, understanding respect and community without corruption is simple. There is no mystery to it. It is not that complicated.

Mr. Underhill, people elected you; do your job without disrespecting the community. It doesn’t get more basic than this. Many have done this before you and will do this after you. Blaming the community makes you look weak and that speaks to your grasp of Southern Honor. Should you take issue with my post, MAN UP AND COME TO ME. DON’T BE A LITTLE BITCH AND POST TO FACEBOOK PAGE YOU KNOW I CAN’T RESPOND TO OR EVEN VIEW.

Underhill Credibility Ranks with Shady Sheriff

This is not news to anyone!

Mr. Underhill sent me this message May 4, 2016, after I posted something to his Facebook page.

Now let’s talk credibility!

I started this blog and named it “Conjuring Justice” because the meaning of “conjuring” is to bring thing to existence from a place where it doesn’t currently exist; creating something by supernatural means or processes.

Justice doesn’t exist in Escambia County. The only way for it to come into being is by bringing it into creation by supernatural means; supernatural meaning conditions that are not natural in that environment. Justice is not natural in Escambia County; truth is not natural in Escambia County.  They must be conjured into being by people who want to bring the extra-ordinary into being.

Doug Underhill is not of the community. He is a outsider who will fleece the county and leave–just like his idol Sir David.  I think Underhill owes Rex Blackburn a PUBLIC APOLOGY for slandering Rex pre-election. If even ONE vote, changed because of Underhill’s LIE, then he should be asked to step down for lying and abuse of power. Perjury is really the word…not lying. He was trusted to not lie in his position as commissioner. That public trust was violated in one sentence. This shows his ethical standard.

YOU ARE A PUBLIC OFFICIAL, MR. UNDERHILL. PULL YOUR BIG BOY PANTIES UP, OWN YOUR LIE AND STOP BEING LIKE MORGAN!underhill-oath

 

 

 

Too Many Chiefs!

Yesterday’s round of promotions was historic in that it ranked this administration as the most top heavy in recent memory. According to one source:

2 chief deputies $230k
4 captains  $294k
4 commanders $350k
Lt colonel. Wtf!– created position
2 majors $150k
3 colonel $240k
Admin cost over $1 million dollars.

Watching these idiotic cowards implode……Priceless!!

Being told that one department, who has 3 employees, has 6-8 superiors. What sense does that make? The biggest issue becomes the fact that this was unsuspected promotions. People were promoted by surprise, while others were left behind–no explanation.

This is nothing new with Morgan. We’ve seen him make decisions like this before. Most recent being the creation of the position and hiring of Chip Simmons.  However, Morgan takes ridiculousness to unexplored realms. Lest we forget the “Super Predator”, “thug culture” that is rampant in Escambia County or the “Witchcraft” killing.

People from outside the county have mocked Morgan for his absurdity, specifically the triple homicide that was tagged as a “witchcraft ritual” and ultimately it was not the fantastic as he wanted it to be.  He is a public joke. His deputies openly MOCK HIM. Really?

Are the inmates running the asylum?? Promoting their buddies and to hell with protocol, or who is deserving of mentioned promotions. He’s the clown handing out promotions like balloon animals  It is embarrassing.

Also, we have an uncorroborated report that Morgan went to the Sacred Heart ER before Christmas for “symptoms of a stroke”.  He wasn’t admitted, so clearly that wasn’t the case but TIA’s or mini strokes are still on the table. Deputies have mentioned Morgan just checks out sometimes. He’s there physically but it is like he is zoned out…sort of randomly.  Is there a neurological issue here? MS?  Alzheimers’s?

We all know that it certainly seems Morgan is off his rocker.
