I started a post on the crazy shit Morgan said publicly in 2017 but it has become such a list that it is almost impossible to get it all out. Even in the face of disgrace, Morgan still tries to “get over”. The AG decided to withhold her opinion on Morgan’s slush fund until after the Governor’s decision. What does that mean? Well, it means its complicated. It means Morgan is not blameless. It means the AG doesn’t want the perception that her opinion will affect the Governor’s ruling. Either way, no one came out to say Morgan was in the clear. If that was the case, there would be no withholding that fact because it would be moot in relation to the Governor’s ruling.
Am I surprised that Bondi didn’t grow a set and do the right thing? Absolutely not. She has given Morgan a pass for so long that it is shameful. Every crime he commits is under their (AG & Governor Scott) auspices. They are facilitating every wrong done by Morgan. Dante Aligheri said it best, ” The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who remain their neutrality in times of moral crisis.”
While I get that it may be politically wise to withhold this decision, but the last year or more of Bondi being aware of Morgan’s antics and NOT taking action prior to being asked by the County Commission is the neutrality that reserves her place in hell. The longer a crime continues the more brazen the criminal gets. We see the dismantling of the county in the crime. Dreamland is a good example. Juvenile crime is representative of the criminality in the community. While crimes are most likely committed by younger populations, the younger the population and the more violent the crime (vs property crimes) is symptomatic of a growing violent crime base over all within that community.
Dreamland had kids with guns at New Years lock-in. That is a new low for the citizens of Escambia County. This shows the escalating severity of the crime in the area. That is the legacy of Morgan.
So many things keep going on continually painting a picture of who the true Sheriff is. The man many of us have seen for years–pathological, irrational, sociopathic, vengeful, petty, and ridiculous to sum it up. His tyrannical tantrum in front of the Secret Service trying to carry his pearl handled pistol in to the Presidential rally, was unmentioned in the news, despite being news worthy. He claimed to be the “fucking Sheriff of this fucking county” to which the Secret Service responded, (I’m paraphrasing), “We don’t care who you are; you are not getting in to see the President with that gun”. Who does that? DUH!! Who thinks that would fly in this day and age? This man is seriously disconnected from reality.
Much like this hissy fit is the crying wolf about pay compression to the Governor. The most amazing thing is how viciously Eric Haines jumps to be nasty to Chairman Jeff Bergosh openly on social media. He sounds much like Underling speaking to his constituents. But the thing I love the most is that Haines talks a lot about the indiscretions of his subordinates that “break the chain of command”. Being the ever diligent hypocrite, as a subordinate in ECSO which is equal with County Commission on the food chain of the county, he breaks the chain of command to attack anyone on behalf of the ECSO. He does not have the standing to make the assertions he does. The sheriff is the spokesman of the agency. It would be akin to having a little kid of one house screeching at the head of the household of his neighbor. Not only is it bad form, it has no authority. He just looks like a spoiled little kid, lashing out.
Besides his inappropriateness, his diatribe of “pay compression” is a fallacy. If the average citizen had all the facts would be able to see right through. So in the spirit of keeping up the revolutionary act of putting the facts and truth out for the public to decide for themselves, I am going to release 2016’s W2’s numbers and a break down of what they mean.
Recently, there has been conversation about President Trump visiting our hometown. Having the POTUS visit your home is a big deal. It has always been considered an honor to be involved in the detail that provides security to the leader of the free world. It is an operation that law enforcement officers consider a privilege. It is a chance to be a part of something that is memorable and honorable. Not many people in the world can be tasked with the responsibility of protecting POTUS.
However, this visit is a bit different than the times I have experienced in the past. The President had been scheduled to visit Pensacola. The typical discussions would take place and plans made to give each agency the details of responsibility. All the law enforcement agencies would begin to plan as needed. The officers would be scheduled, and the plan would start to take form. Then……enter Morgan.
Even a self-mined political hack like Sir David Morgan would be reasonable enough to understand that this event is bigger than he is. If that was the conclusion you reached, you would be wrong. In fact, it would be absolute opposite of that conclusion. Morgan is the fly in the ointment again! This fool can avoid seeing that POTUS is coming to Pensacola for a purpose–a purpose that is likely to advance the agenda that he holds to improve the life of all Americans. When the self-absorbed sheriff can ignore that the President and turn the event into being about himself, it is a BIG DEAL!
Morgan made the decision to negotiate the terms that he will allow officers to provide protection to POTUS. In this mind-blowing thought process, he believed that he should sing the anthem and be provided time to address the audience. I know…. right? None of this included considering law enforcement function, which would have been the intent of the detail nor any thought of how best to accomplish the mutual agency cooperation and goals that are already in place. No consideration was given to better work with the Secret Service for a successful event. This fool believed he had the right to demand payoff for simply doing his job. He essentially is attempted to be paid with favors for being the Sheriff and tried to extort the President. This man never fails to shock the community with his ignorance.
This circus act is just another day at the office. Cops realize that it isn’t a joke to be viewed as fools. It makes me sick to my stomach to watch the agency fall into the shame of the everyone because of egos. Morgan has recently admitted under oath that he isn’t a certified law enforcement officer. So why when he makes a mockery of an agency that –until his arrival— had respect from the community, does nothing get reported except in independent blogs? He routinely allows or ignores the hate spewing attacks of Eric Haines to be allowed in any public forum. There appears to be no expectation of honesty being that Haines reported the ECSO was involved just like past Presidential details. This is an absolute lie. We were made aware after investigations was told they were not needed. The understanding that most have is a couple of staff members showed up and 6 or 8 from SWAT members were at the hotel. Really Eric? I find it appalling that you can judge others so vocally and lie publicly. Pathetic and predictable.
Please don’t allow “The Diva” some call Sheriff to cause the officers to be viewed as the same mental midget that Morgan is. Good cops want to do the right thing. The public only sees the antics of a man-child playing dress up. All his underlings have exceeded any expectation they, or anyone else, had for their life. His staff proves that a history of beating your spouse or shooting at your spouse is somehow useful experience. You can be a drunk and sleep with coworkers. Avoid following the path of testing and proving you are qualified. Vacate any of the integrity that you could have. Disregard that one day your child could discover you were a fake and stood for nothing. Completely bow to the honor of being blessed with the presence of Sir David Morgan. That is how you survive the Morgan administration. The cops haven’t done that. Cops are still the guys and girls in the patrol cars patrolling your neighborhoods while you sleep. The same ones that hold their head not so high. They feel the embarrassment for a man who would never be embarrassed because he doesn’t know what to be embarrassed about. He is certain that the way he does business is exactly like Miami Vice, but the cops with day to day contact with the public do know to be embarrassed. They have integrity and can spot a fraud. Morgan should realize that real cops will stay the course. In the end, he is exposed and the cops win.
We owe President Trump an apology. I hope he understands that Pensacola is a great place to call home. We appreciate him noticing our home and taking time to visit. Our law enforcement would proudly perform the duties as expected when he visits. President Trump would understand we have our own swamp to drain. Soon I hope we see a change for the better and changes come. I think with that clown posse out of the ECSO we can get back to being proud of our home.
So I posted yesterday night that Morgan took a knee rather than let deputies participate in POTUS rally. This was true when I posted. It was confirmed by a city source. There were 6 S.W.A.T team members allowed to participate but deputies were not participating…..at least until I posted my blog.
According to sources inside city and FDLE, late last night a few deputies were called and told to show up for the rally. This was AFTER MY BLOG POSTED AND PEOPLE STARTED GETTING PISSED.
Did I create that? Who knows, but the attempt to change the course of the Escambia history seems to have coincided with a woman in Kentucky with a big mouth. You decide…but it is amusing to think how “impertinent” I am.
In an unprecedented move, Sheriff Morgan refuses to lend support to presidential detail for Trump. WTF? He claims he is shorthanded but this is the Commander in Chief, you make it work or at least give a token few deputies as a show of good faith. In a military town, from a former officer of the Air Force, this is unreal. This begs the question, why?
Photo op and fanfare but no Morgan??? This seems ridiculous. In talking to a military source, a reason that was floated as to this missed press optic, may have something to do with Morgan’s LACK OF SECURITY CLEARANCE. Morgan refused to be vetted for a security clearance to be apart of the Joint Terrorism Taskforce, meaning he is not a party to any terrorism threat in Escambia County. He cannot be privy to details of any info that every other agency in Northwest Florida has access to, like PPD, FDLE, & FHP who work with federal agencies. Morgan can’t be at the table.
Is that a point of contention? Or is it a perceived point of contention? There is no reason for the military Sheriff disrespecting the President in a military town.
Sometimes the posts just write themselves. Thank God for that. Thank God for the Free Speech that would otherwise not be afforded to me in any other country. Free Speech Sir David doesn’t want to hear but that just delineates the need for such. If someone locally, won’t say it, I will. If not me then who? If not now, then when?
There were 2 different articles in the Mullet Wrapper this weekend that basically hit on the same points. The first is by my fave writer, Emma Kennedy, “Reopened death row, juvenile justice cases strain system” & the second, by my other fave writer at the Mullet Wrapper, Kevin Robinson, “Escambia County leads state in charging juveniles as adults”.
To summarize the two issues, in 2012, the Supreme Court ruled in Miller v. Alabama, that mandatory sentences of life without parole for children under the age of 18 are unconstitutional. The weight of this decision is financially straining Bill Eddins’s office because………
First thing that comes to mind is that office has been pushing juveniles into adult sentences at a far higher rate than the rest of the state, which is pointed out in the second article, by Robinson. Scott McCoy of the Southern Poverty Law Center, (SPLC) points out that these kids are being pushed into the adult system only to get probation. If the crimes are not severe enough to actually result in jail time, why shouldn’t they stay in the juvenile justice system which would allow them the chance to not be labeled within the adult system? This seems to be a case of not liking that option because it isn’t seen as punitive enough (in NW FL), for Mr. Eddins or at least his perception of what his constituents wants?
Over the last few weeks, I have become more acquainted with what passes for “a case” by the State Attorney’s office. Ron Clark Ball, John Powell, Pat Gonzalez, Gary Sumner were just a few who have been escorted in front of cameras and called criminals but when the evidence is laid to bear…..our court system (and by extension the judiciary that allows them to play “law”) were the through-backs on the short bus in law school.
What are you thinking, Bill Eddins, when you allow a personal vendetta of one of the legal elite firms to rope you into a RICO case, where there is perjured testimony, charges galore that end up being dropped because they are just that charges…not actual crimes committed. The bill on that case will cost the taxpayers millions. What about the letting whomever, assist the Assistant State Attorneys in the grand jury room, when Fla Statutes say they must have a J.D. after their name? Greg Marcille surely knows that. What about letting a Sheriff shake GRAND JURORS hands telling them, “I’ve done my job; now it’s time for you to do yours”? This is a directive to people personally to indict. How many people have been deprived a fair trial for that. Screwing with Grand Juries , YEAR AFTER YEAR, seems to me that will cost the taxpayers BILLIONS WITH A “B”.
This is a case where people who are in charge shouldn’t be. Their decisions result in inequities on the people they were sworn to represent and protect. I am talking about CRIMES OF MORALITY THAT LET THE REAL CRIMINALS OUT WHILE PUTTING THE INNOCENT IN JAIL.
Please, as always, don’t just take my word for this. Go to Flcourts.gov, or FDLE.gov. The statistics of what is actually going on. The problem is these men, Eddins, Morgan are stewards of the county and they don’t play fair. Consequently, in the appellate stage, other courts look at their non-sense and kicks back the badly handled cases. That is an error that is coming to fruition while these men are still in office. Typically, this sort of thing hits the following administration or comes back to haunt the subsequent terms of politicians; however, the glut for power has kept them in office long enough to see the spoils of their injustices.
It is a no-brainer that if you have to pay for a job to be done and then redone because of it was inadequate, it costs more money. Doing the job twice due to shortcuts like not having the properly composed grand jury, pushing kids into an adult system for no reason other than perceived political capital, letting other officials subject court cases to retrial for inappropriate contact, all these things COST THE TAXPAYERS MONEY & on top of it, having to doing out punitive damages for ruining people’s lives COSTS EVEN MORE.
According to the NCJRS (National Criminal Justice Reference Service),
Corruption can arise in virtually any area of local government activity, and will leave distinct traces according to the area -law enforcement, land-use regulation, purchasing, or tax assessment. It is possible to put together a diagnostic check list that will indicate possible corruption in a particular area.
When corruption in government is suspected, there is a checklist of things people should look for. Some of those are:
Have there been any cases tried in recent history of corruption? Statistically, there are going to be people involved in the moving parts of government trying to make money by cutting corners. Lack of this implies there are things not being caught which indicates incompetence or there are things overlooked indicating bigger corruption. Either way, the fact is something has to change for the county to retain its liquidity.
Is there a high turnover in agency personnel? This indicates a systemic internal problem that cost taxpayers money and allows for corruption to flourish in the internal dissension.
Are public positions filled when there is no need for the job, as hiring a
swimming instructor for a park with no pool? This indicates the fulfilling of political favors for off the book gains ie corruption.
Are those arrested for narcotics and gambling mostly street-level people
rather than higher ups? This indicates incompetence in not investigating about the street-level soldiers in a more organized criminal enterprise.
Is there an effective independent investigative agency to hear complaints of official misconduct? This is a check and balance approach to keep everybody honest.
The NCJRS (National Criminal Justice Reference Service) goes on to say:
“Some people who participate in corruption make no attempt to hide their activities, either believing that what they are doing is perfectly acceptable or expecting that no one will be watching. In most cases, however, participants will attempt to cover their tracks, both by making payoffs secretly and by attempting to provide a legitimate cover for their decisions. Where this is true, uncovering corruption problems can be difficult. Existing nvestigative bodies, such as the police and the prosecutors’ offices, are the obvious starting point because they can use surveillance techniques, subpoena powers, and the like, and can grant immunity to uncover evidence of specific crimes. Elected officials and agency heads who have daily contact with first-line supervisors or middle-level management are likely to have a fairly good idea of where the soft spots are, although they may be protected from below from any knowledge of specific corrupt acts or practices. Those who deal with local government from the outside – lawyers representing developers, contractors seeking building permits, salesmen seeking orders, or companies seeking contracts -will have certain knowledge of specific acts of corruption. Some will have little interest in exposing the acts that they profit from while others will be eager to see an immediate end to corruption (although they may be reluctant to aid in a suppression effort that entails personal risk). Newspaper, wire service, and television reporters may have more knowledge of corrupt acts than is revealed in their news reports, but may be reluctant to reveal it for fear of cutting themselves off from sources of other news. Outside of specifically chartered investigative bodies, the least reluctant sources of information about acts of corruption are official records.
” The desire to be respected by the public, so that being a politician or civil servant can be considered an honorable career, and election, appointment, or employment in government can be considered evidence of high personal standards of conduct. (They display:)• Recognition that corruption has a high social as well as monetary cost, and that even though the public may not seem to care in situations where corruption exists, and may continue to vote··in administrations that are either dirty or too stupid to be believed, the social cost is still being paid. When corruption and the costs of corruption finally become unacceptable, the result is likely to be personal as well as civic peril.• The awareness that there are standards of ethical conduct that can be agreed on, and principles of ethical action that can be applied, so that an employee or official can have confidence that he/she is acting ethically and need not be at the mercy of a superior’s whim or an investigative reporter’s slow news day. The most important ingredient of a (government leadership) management environment that is hostile to corruption is a strong and principled leadership. Without that, formalized guidelines for ethical behavior will be of little use. The next ingredient is credibility, which rests not only on sending clear messages that reinforce one another but also on keeping it all open and public”
Bottom line: Is this present in Escambia County? The articles in the PNJ tell the story….NO!
It’s November 16th, and a bit late to start giving thanks but better late than never.
I am thankful that I have the ability to do what I do. My family doesn’t always understand but nevertheless, I have the leeway to jump out on a limb for things I care about without condemnation. Appreciation is taken for granted but I am beholden to my husband and family for letting me be me. Not they had much choice, because I am hard headed, but I don’t get much flack anymore.
The fact that anyone is reading this is amazing to me. I’m just a woman with a big mouth. I’ve never asserted my superiority over anyone; I just think the people in the positions of power should be held accountable. People go through their days everyday without knowing their decisions impact the lives of other people. Politicians should be more cognizant of this fact and they should be thankful everyday they can have the ability to change the world, but all too often, they lose sight of the big picture, seeing only the ass-kissers and their “yes” men who follow them blindly. This tunnel vision gives them the sense of invincibility and that carries with it such arrogance and it blurs the vision of the lines of right and wrong. It is the nature of politics. But that tunnel vision has be broken by people who see a bigger picture or who see the lines between right and wrong vaporizing. Everybody agrees that if a cop shoots an innocent man, the cop should be held to the standard of anyone else–no special treatment, but when that same cop is smiling and shaking people’s hand and stealing from them, that’s just as wrong and anyone witnessing that has an obligation, a duty, to society and the greater good to say something. That is why I do what I do. I thank God for giving me the ability to do so.
The first thing I want to address in this series is a case that truly hurts my soul. Stephanie Todd. This beautiful, eccentric woman disappeared in February. In July, skeletal remains were found 75 ft from her back door that is presumably her. This is a mom with kids who faded into a oblivion one day after putting her kids on the bus. No missing person report was taken; no investigation into why. There are several possible explanations. 1. Stephanie wasn’t wealthy & lived in Brownsville 2. Stephanie was a vocal about local political corruption, particularly the crooked deputies at the ECSO. She’d had run ins with a couple which she was victimized due to her pissing off Sir David’s buddy, Mirza Ahmad.
But since the remains were found in July, steps from her back door, the assumption is the body is Stephanie’s. However, no one smelled the decomp. that should have been overwhelming being so close to her home and no one looked in the woods just beyond the back door of her home when she went missing. Months later, the cause of death of this body that is probably Stephanie is officially deemed suicide. Now that would seem to close the investigation of the case having decided that no crime occurred, but that is wrong. The investigation is still “open” which is problematic for someone like me because that means they won’t release any information as a public record. So this case just withers while no one is verifying who the body is or why no one smelled the decomp or why my friend was never reported missing.
A person’s life is never supposed to be so easily erased without someone giving a shit, but this is a “misdemeanor homicide” in my opinion, suicide was the easy out in resolving it and to not have to put manpower into a real investigation. So today, I want to take time to be thankful that Stephanie Todd lived. She was an eccentric but wonderful woman that I miss very much.
Wherever you are Stephanie, someone still remembers you. Your story isn’t over yet.
It has been a very long time since I sat down and dedicated a message just to you. This last week has been an eventful week in Escambia County and there is no better time like the present.
First of all, let me address the misconception that I have “no interest in Escambia County”, the implied meaning is that I need to get my nose out of your county. Your premise here is like most others is flawed and thereby your conclusions drawn from them are just as flawed, if not, more so.
My current location is simply geography; Escambia County is my home, despite the fact my GPS coordinates differ. I first learned the meaning of normal there; I went on my first date there; my first hellion travails were on those roads, in my first car; I got married and 2 of 3 of my kids took their first breath there; my first real dagger to my soul happened there with the loss of my father, my first parent to die. All my friends, alliances, allegiances and history reside in Escambia County. You are located there; you lied your way into the hearts and minds of the citizens and after you’re done fleecing the people, you, Underhill and Haines, will leave Escambia County because you have nothing that binds you to the people, the land or the legacy of this area when you don’t have your power to abuse. Your geography is not going to be the county’s degeneracy.
So having established my provenance, I will get back to the task at hand.
The County Budget
Gleefully, I told Jeff Bergosh, personally, I was proud of him and his own personal integrity in telling you to be a good steward of the county funds, regardless of your posturing and PR attacks. I know he didn’t do it alone but, in assessing the alpha-ness of the other members, Bergosh stands out, only to be outshined by your bitch, Underling. But Dougie’s pompous bravado on social media shows that in the heat of the fire (being critiqued or scrutinized), he’s reduced to a common schoolyard bully. Since he is ECUA’s favorite commissioner, he may outlast you by a minute but if he continues to hitch his politics to you, he may be out with you.
2. The Complaint about the Security at the Fair
I have been telling people for years what a narcissist you are, but your minions making an anonymous complaint at the fair was the first nail of the week in the cross the citizens are making to crucify you. You see, you looked petty, which you are. Plus by having those security guys leave, the guys working the fair, FDLE (the ones that will inevitably be investigating you) were left shorthanded. You burned another bridge, Dumbass. Or either you allowed someone to burn it on behalf of your agency. Either way, it was your guys, on your watch. Leadership is a role of responsibility, for the good and the bad. You are responsible for their actions, whether you did it or not.
3. The Deputy Sex Scandal
I categorically deny any personal relationship with any member of the Manning family. I apologize to the citizens for wasting taxpayers’s money in habitually being compelled to respond to frivolous and false claims and lawsuits fueled by nothing more than rumors, innuendo, Facebook and blog postings.
Riddle me this, then. If you didn’t have ANY relationship with the Manning family, how did I get your personal cell number from a member of the Manning family? You see, the phones collected from the Mannings were new phones that they had less than 6 mos. The old cells, with their SIM cards, were never taken into custody. Plus, there is a cell carrier with a cloud drive that make access to this info readily available without those old phones.
Now granted you have that number registered under a bogus name but 2 different sources verified it’s authenticity but because I still wasn’t convinced, I called the number and heard:
….The two sources that verified it were other people you pissed off but would not turn over your number to me in spite of the fact they hate your guts. They did, however, corroborate they received calls and text messages from your number in the last few weeks.
How is that possible?? The phone number given to me over a year ago that is registered to:
Why would a Sheriff lie about his association with this family publicly and then have the nerve to use a what I assume you meant to be a burner phone under an assumed name for personal, professional and very private affairs?? Are you trying to get caught or were you arrogant enough to think you only had to half-ass cover yourself?
That’s one for the people to understand. There are a great deal of secrets held by the Mannings (involving you) that would make Ron Jeremy cringe. While you can paint me as someone who is making shit up, the problem is the shit you say I make up, is factual, down to the dirty pics. Mark Smith has a personal stake in those photos too, but I will leave your deviant sexual tendencies and behavior to the speculation of the readers.
By the way, should you feel the need to “go after” me as you claim to the news, ( I am the only blogger who broke this story and your connection to the principals involved intimately), spell my name correctly, Bitch. I would love to turn over all the stuff I have to a judge. That’s my goal anyway. I have nothing to hide and there is nothing that I have asserted that could not be backed up with people, documents or both.
Plus in that statement of possible retaliation you claim to be considering, you show your true colors. Even if the girls are misguided as you claim, who SUES SEXUALLY ASSAULTED GIRLS for their story?? You jump to the defensive position without any understanding of other people. These are young girls who have been raped by the system, as well as their parents, and sexual predators. Do you really want to put YOUR reputation up against that? You love to victimize the victims. This is something most citizens won’t tolerate.
In closing, I just wanted to say I have enjoyed my phone blowing up because of your nonsense boiling over. You are so absorbed in your own shit that you can’t see the forest for the trees.
So I’ll wrap up this letter for now.
The lady who promises to bring the karmic justice you deserve to your door.
For a small community, Escambia County has more than its share of sex issues. Recently, 2 EMT’s (Doug & Leah Manning) were charged with sexual assault and child abuse for offering their teenage daughters to sleep with Escambia County Sheriff Deputies. Two men were videotaped with the 16 year old twin girls who were the kids of Leah Manning. The deputies were Walter Thomas & Mark Smith–both 40+ years old– and are only named specifically because of aforementioned video on a cell phone. The disturbing part of this situation is threefold; 1. How many other deputies sexually assaulted these girls who were not necessarily recorded? 2. How many other teenagers in these girls’ clique may be involved? 3. Why isn’t the Sheriff’s Department actually investigating this OR rather why isn’t a less corrupt agency investigating this? Do bad kids usually punish themselves?
I have part of an answer. Despite the fact there could be additional sex offenders with badges slapping cuffs on with one hand and slapping asses with the other or more kids that were molested by the men in green, the Sheriff is playing CYA (Cover Your Ass). Truth be told, the “free love” lifestyle is rampant among the Escambia County Sheriff’s office. Sir David is believed to participate in “free love” as well as Rick Outzen, his puppet, who pulled a major political favor out of Morgan by having his girlfriend given a fictitious job upon Morgan’s election as Sheriff. David Craig, Major, Community Policing Coordinator, Communications Director (depending on the day) was also bestowed a job within the Sheriff’s office as a condition of Morgan’s election.
(Damn, I never noticed but they could be brothers!) Surrounded by people indebted to the him, unwilling to live up to their assumed responsibility as well as deputies acting like gerbils crawling all over each other, Sir David doesn’t want his office to look bad. Who would want all this to come out? Definitely not Outzen—his wife and kids don’t know what kind of kink he has in his step. Certainly not the people who are inservitude to Sir David. Absolutely not the people who are screwing each other as well each others’ children. We could take it to the Chief Deputy who is a man of God, right? Holier than though Haines seems inclined to watch Sodom & Gomorrah burn, while he standing by idly. He sees the sins and the sinners but chooses to do nothing to stand up for his supposed values and God. Praise the Lord and pass the popcorn. Should we turn to FDLE, who composed of ex-deputies with buddies involved? Should we look to federal intervention in a region where a criminal informant is given carte blanche to kill while everyone covers it up? Like that really matters in light of a Sheriff who pronounces a “death sentence” over anybody that comes forward. To clarify, “you will wish you were dead if you speak outside this office”. Justice at work people. Who is next on the victim list? Maybe you? Maybe your children? Don’t let these people walk free in your community. If deputies are so sexually liberated to speak openly about their lifestyle in the workplace, it makes sense that they are prioritizing their pleasure over their responsibility. How many on duty deputies rotated in and out of the Manning house? Last count was 10-15. THIS IS NOT OK. There are reasons for ethical codes for peace officers. They are morally held to a standard that we should all live at. Yet they have the ability to commit the vilest of crimes without word one in the news. C’mon! In the Billings’ case, every detail and piece of evidence was dumped into the public and pictures were released to get press. Where are those cameras now? Why isn’t someone hounding the Sheriff to keep the public apprised of the further investigation in sexual depravity and molestation in his own HOUSE?
A 94 year old widow is being pushed out of her lifelong home because of a convoluted lawsuit against her son, in an attempt to leverage the 94 year old mother to “turn on” her son. This is being done by a non-county employee working for the county with unfettered discretion and authority. I bring up the non-county part because it is important to know that this man has NO REPERCUSSIONS levied if he does illegal things. He will be severed from the county and responsibilities carried in the umbrella of county ethics. He can be “kited” without any blowback to the State Attorney’s office legally. He’s a rogue agent without the same checks and balances to keep him in place. Yes I am speaking of Russell Edgar who has been practicing law since I was born.
How is this possible? Russ retired years ago. He gets full retirement, no pension, and a full pay check for the same job. He also has more authority, in that he isn’t a State employee technically. Abuse of power is only the beginning of this case.
A decorated Navy vet who has done more for this country than Russ has a widow who will be kicked out of her home as a means of trying to get to her son, in a civil suit blown up into a RICO case unjustly. Who do you complain to? He isn’t a state employee. He is a contracted representative with the full power of the state and acts as an agent of the state but is not bound to any rules that would apply to most assistant state attorneys.
How is this possible? Greed by a rogue agent can abuse the law, unscathed, and it be supported by the state. The umbrella of prosecutorial immunity still applies when the laws surrounding that immunity don’t. WTF???
Escambia is paying double for one job to the same person who did it prior. On top of that, he gets free license to go after anyone without any consequences for bad behavior. I just don’t understand.
