CHAPTER 3 OF THE DEVIL WAS APPOINTED IN GEORGIA

Robert “Cory” Sasser’s law enforcement career was marred by repetitive  behavioral and procedural transgressions. Quite obviously, he was an albatross around the Glynn County Police Department’s neck.  His extensive Internal Affairs cases tell a story of a man who had serious problems with authority, and a brazen & corrosive contempt for the rules. His increasing disregard for all people & things is shamefully apparent to everyone around this man. Intelligent professionals, who were around him day to day, should have seen Sasser for what he was, a train wreck waiting to happen.

Here is a brief summary of Sasser’s documented discipline issues & indiscretions (2001-2011):

2001-2011

Note, there is a huge gap from 2005-2011; there is no hint of the Caroline Smalls shooting in 2010 nor is there a mention of another dubitable shooting of a drug dealer in 2005. In this shooting, again, he shot the suspect through the windshield.  Perplexingly, he was cleared for both shootings; however, the departmental policies and procedures that were no doubt violated, are absent in this laundry list of Sasser’s misbehavior. Another exclusion is an incident in January, 2011.  Sasser arrogantly flaunted the fact he was “untouchable” to his colleagues.

Understanding Sasser’s history of perpetual and escalating misdeeds, a practiced legal professional had the duty to weigh the second shooting in 2010 (a shooting that was nothing less than first degree murder) heavily. D.A. Jackie Johnson made the purposeful, informed choice to disregard Sasser’s pattern of escalating misbehavior. She willfully undermined the prosecution of Sasser and in that act, she diverged from the position of D.A., electing, instead, to become Sasser’s voluntary co-conspirator in any and all crimes he, later, committed .  And as to be expected, Sasser and Jackie’s stories marched into historical notoriety.

In May of 2018, after Sasser and his wife, Katie, separate. Predictably, he began terrorizing her. This is body cam footage from an incidence on the 13th of May, 2018:

 

Sasser is not arrested during this incidence. Anyone else would have been arrested, without question, on the spot. On Monday,  the 15th, when Chief Powell finds out about this event, he lost his cool. Based on Sasser’s “untouchable” standing with the D.A., Powell requested the elected Solicitor General, who, in Georgia, reviews & prosecutes criminal cases, and the Chief Judge Magistrate, to review the evidence for potential criminal charges. This was not protocol but Chief Powell believed his office would be seen as bias and the D.A., who works hand in hand with judges, may subvert the case and criminal charges. The Solicitor General, believed to be a lesser biased politician, and Chief Judge Magistrate reviewed the case and the body cam footage. Both agreed that despite the responding officers’ belief that there was no probable cause for arrest, the Solicitor General and Chief Magistrate found probable cause did exist for Sasser’s arrest that night. Their decision was that only misdemeanor charges of simple battery and criminal trespass provided that probable cause. An IA was initiated on Sasser and was put on admin leave without pay until the IA was concluded. The officers on the scene of this domestic violence event were later disciplined by Chief Powell for their failure to take the appropriate action the night of the incident. Their relationship with Sasser recklessly tainted their judgment.

On the following Thursday, May 17th, Sasser turned himself in. Enigmatically, before anyone knew he had turned himself in, he was released on bond. Sheriff Neal Jump facilitated his bond and ensured Sasser received an expedited first appearance, outside of normal court scheduling. Jump also gained an extraordinarily fastidious release for Sasser on domestic violence charges. Sasser, literally, bonded out within the hour after his arrest. Here are the documents from this arrest, including the bond :

A victim advocate contacted Katie Sasser to tell her of her husband’s arrest and immediate release. The victim advocate was concerned about Cory’s welfare, believing him to be suicidal. It isn’t clear that this advocate feared for Katie Sasser’s well being. By all accounts, it was suggested Cory Sasser was the focus of concern, rather than his wife. This was uncustomary all the way around. Sasser’s history was indicative of someone who would re-offend in this situation. Domestic violence cases have such a high predictability of ending with murder or suicide. That is the reason risk assessment measures by trained officers on the scene and the legal system are educated on perils and statistical consequences involved in domestic violence cases; it is they that dictate the level of precautions to be taken.

Despite the cumulative training, all the professionals involved had (you guessed it), this was not the end of the story.

The Continuation of the Devil Got Appointed in Georgia: New Details in the Caroline Smalls Case

Before I move on to the next saga which will be Cory Sasser’s IA record, I want to restate that this entire shit show only happens because of corruption.  For now, it bears understanding a bit more the backstory to the Caroline Small Shooting.  To those of us without that sort of Machiavellian thinking, which must be factory installed, it is stupefying to see all the behind the scenes machinations. That is why I want to go back to the appointment of Jackie Johnson.

The District Attorney, prior to the shooting, Stephen Kelley, was appointed to a Circuit Court judgeship and had named his predecessor for the remainder of his term, (roughly less than 6 months), as David Perry.  Perry disclosed publicly, he wasn’t running for the position in November of that year. He was always strictly a temporary prosecutor.  Unbeknownst to him at the time, he became more temporary than even he thought.

When he originally watched the dashcam video of the Smalls shooting with Chief Doering,  (included in the prior post) Perry reportedly turned green and instantly decided this was a criminal event and he would be seeking indictments against the officers involved in that shooting. After hearing him say this in the press, Jackie Johnson, who announced she was running in the November election for that position, went to the then Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering.  Doering who vocally sided with the officers put himself on the opposite side of justice and this issue with Perry.  Doering simultaneously was dealing with the GBI (Georgia Bureau of Investigation). They were called in to review the actions of the Glynn County Police Dept. This resulted into a parallel investigation. There were continuous clashes between the policing agencies and resulted in finger pointing from both sides. Glynn County Police Officer, Tommy Tindale, head of Internal Affairs outright told GBI agents that they were only called in “for public perception”, implying the GBI was supposed to feign to investigate, while allowing the police department to make the real determination. This sort of statement is brazen and very reminiscent of Chicago in the 1920’s.

Further, flaunting the perversion of justice, Doering, in a gesture that should be insignificant in the overall scheme of things, wrote a letter to then Governor Sonny Perdue recommending Jackie Johnson be appointed immediately, prior to the November election. In a more paradoxical deviation of all reasoning, Perdue acquiesced and removed Perry, replacing him with Jackie. She, then, unsurprisingly, summarily fired Perry for his handling of this case as well as ceasing the proceedings, while lambasting Perry for the convening of a grand jury against Sasser and Simpson.  She cited increased friction with the Glynn County Police Department that could not be tolerated. However, no one else was cognizant of any friction between the DA’s office and the Glynn County Police except perhaps Matt Doering. Point of fact, the friction was between the GBI and the Glynn Police and the DA’s office that Jackie’s appointment further exacerbated.

After Perry’s firing, the ADA’s in the office with Jackie were targeted, as described in the prior post. Keith Higgins maintained the physical file of this case in his office until his termination. He is adamant Jackie never once came down to get that file to review while he was still employed, even when she was preparing the purely theatrical grand jury later seated with the officers having the upper hand. Her appointment by Perdue is confounding, especially considering, Perry was sufficiently navigating the waters of a powder keg case that Sasser and Simpson lit with their 8 shots into the windshield of a single mother.

My questions, so far, in this mockery of justice are:

  1. What individual motives are there for all the actors to obfuscate justice? Is it a common incentive or do they individually have motivation?  Or is it, truly, that these people are so inept that they cannot investigate a crime?
  2. Why did Doering’s recommendation carry so much weight to prompt the governor to replace Perry, right then? Was there more than just Doering’s recommendation that paved the way for Jackie to jump in?
  3. Why is Sasser, specifically, important to protect?

The Caroline Small case is more than a tragedy; it is a state sanctioned murder. No sense has ever been made of this single solitary event, let alone the events that were to come. Arthur Conan Doyle said it best, “Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.” To have the outcome in cases like Caroline Smalls, or Patrick Gonzalez Jr., where there is no real quest for the truth,  after all other explanations are ruled out, all that is left is corruption.

 

The Devil Got Appointed in Georgia: A Series on the Senseless Consequences of Politics in Southern Georgia

Chapter 1

So it came to my attention via an article forwarded to me, that John Powell, a man who ran against Morgan was indicted in Glynn County, Georgia, where he is the Police Chief. You may recall, Morgan had him arrested on a misdemeanor campaign finance violation, (the only person in Florida ever arrested for this violation) during his campaign against Morgan. Naturally, it was a farce and the charges were dismissed. Because of his connection to Escambia County and as an acquaintance of mine, I was naturally intrigued and felt compelled to look into the story behind the indictment. It may appear this chapter isn’t connected but I promise you it is.

It seems the beginning of this Georgia injustice began in June 2010. Caroline Smalls, a mother with alleged mental health issues was in a parking lot when a caller called the police because they believed the woman was openly using narcotics. Here is the dashcam footage:

Of the two cops that were involved were Robert “Cory” Sasser and Todd Simpson, Cory Sasser is the name to remember. By the way, this woman remained in this car, alive, for a bit before anyone called EMS.  She died a week later. Enter Jackie Johnson. Roughly 6 weeks after this incident, Sonny Perdue, then governor of Georgia, appointed Jackie Johnson to the office of Brunswick District Attorney. Jackie promptly fired a prosecutor, David Perry, who was vocal on prosecuting these officers.  Another prosecutor, Jonathan Miller, resigned from the District Attorney’s office to run against Jackie, specifically because of this case.

And even another senior prosecutor dismissed from her office, Keith Higgins, says an animated video re-enactment presented to the grand jury was inaccurate and misleading, showing Smalls had room to run over the officers, which clearly is contradicted by the video. Jackie let the officers  and their attorneys speak in the grand jury proceeding without being under indictment. This is unprecedented. She also allowed them to have all the evidence prior to their appearance before the grand jury, in fact, for 2 months before it was convened, again, unprecedented.  Jackie refused to let people most familiar with the case testify and fired people in her office that questioned her, including a victim advocate. To be expected, the grand jurors came back with no “true bill” against the officers. Jackie claimed that her actions were only to preserve alliances with the Glynn Police Department, although there was a loud outcry of injustice from fellow officers.

By covering for these officers, Jackie walked, with intertwined arms into their legacy and notoriety. As the succession of posts come to pass, the intermingling of Sasser and Jackie will unfold…to the very end.

This is the first in a series of articles about the preposterous political absurdities in Southern Georgia.

Vinson’s Dismissal of the Rogers’ Cases

Judge Roger Vinson dismissed the lawsuits against Sir David last month. Morgan made short order in getting his version out in spite of the Corona Virus Craziness. I’m sure he’d hoped my response to this would be seen poorly, as an attack on the “first responders”.  I did wait to reply as I see this whole thing will decline quickly, restoring Morgan’s image as a the coward he is rather than the false facade of heroic first responder.

Vinson claimed the one claim by Zarzaur that made these federal cases was the “deliberate indifference” of children in the home with the foresight to see that sexual abuse of the girls could be predicted.  He found no evidence to be presented that definitively showed Morgan was aware of the existence of the Rogers twins and thereby couldn’t be indifferent. The following passage says it all:

6

So the other things mentioned….he doesn’t run a tight ship regarding sex on duty and that he interfered with Internal Investigations of such misconduct, are now facts of law.

This includes the the following: 34

I have attached the full opinion here and I believe sexual deviance could be predicted. We know sexual predators don’t stop or go backwards. Sexual deviance progresses much the same way. The thrill is in the taboo of the situation. Once the taboo loses its excitement, something more “taboo” and exciting will be sought. Given that there were adolescents in the home that sexual escalation was absolutely forseeable.

But the biggest “gotcha” is that Morgan despite many many times claiming he didn’t “have sex with that woman”, did not convince a judge .i could not would not

Commentary:  I believe Bill Chavers is collateral damage here of a vindictive Mindy Pare.

 

ECSO: Haines Self-Demotes

Chief Deputy Haines chose to self demote effective May 1st; he will be a lieutenant working in cyber crime.  Speculation is that he is seeking protection from PBA.  That seems terribly unlikely with all the acrimony Haines has caused. I am also hearing he has the ability to “back out” of such a deal, anytime prior to May 1st.

This was a result of Eric trying to somehow be a part of Chip Simmons’s campaign. Chip declined the offer. There was a push to get some assurance of Haines’s job security when Chip becomes Sheriff. Seems as if Chip planned to put him in a innocuous, non predatory position, if he was kept at all. This lack of future job security ostensibly rattled the poor bastard because he agreed to self-demote to lieutenant. .

Morgan is none too pleased about this failure of Chip’s to keep his “little buddy” on as the bully in charge within administration. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I totally believe Morgan is going to file to run again by the June deadline. I think his narcissism will not allow him to become irrelevant, which is what he will be without the Sheriff’s badge. Mark my words, Morgan cannot let go of the wheel. He will be claiming the citizens are begging him to run.

I did inquire about whether Haines will be getting a pay cut. I am told he will lose approximately $50K a year in the demotion, which will knock him down to a cool $100K a year.  Poor bastard will need to stop taking cruises now. But he is get his cruise on as he has been on 2 in the last month. The one he’s on now is with his pervert brother Scott. I guess they need a break from being evil.

Haines Brothers: Predators at Large

The Haines brothers just keep on victimizing people and very little is being done to protect the community from these guys.

Eric Haines

Chief Deputy Eric Haines had his PBA membership revoked due to his continuous malfeasance and abuse of officers’ rights. No one has ever had their membership revoked. One person was unseated from the PBA board, but he still maintained his regular membership.  This is huge. His actions are contrary to the mission statement and fundamental operations of the PBA. What does that say? This is unprecedented.

Oh and remember the “cancer sex” website he wanted to start. That nugget of info came out in Laura Montoya’s case. Common theme….sexual harassment.

 

Scott Haines

The Santa Rosa Sheriff’s Office demoted Scott Haines after an IA investigation corroborated, in part, the sexual harassment of a subordinate. The finding of dildo underwear in his desk was the part being disciplined. The investigation concluded everything else is “he said” “she said”.

With his prior IA for viewing porn on his office computer as well as answering personal ads on Craigslist for hookups, there should be little doubt this guy is a sexual problem that is just amplifying due to the lack of REAL discipline. This dude is a threat to the community. Let’s not forget, he is exploiting an old lady for her money.

Why the hell are these guys allowed to oversee any staff at all? What the hell happened to these guys growing up that they have such vile proclivities to victimize people? Sexual abuse ? Possibly. All I can say for sure is these dudes should never be able to use their position, power or standing in the community to prey on said community.

There are serious sexual issues in these two departments.  These two brothers are at the center of it all.

SRSO Scott Haines: The Exploitation of Dorothy Rogers

Previously I posted on Scott Haines an SRSO officer who wormed his way into a family, isolated a 90 year old woman with Alzheimer’s, Dorothy Rogers, and convinced her that her family was out “to put her away”. By detaching her from her family, via false accusations, civil complaint, and arrest warrant, Scott convinced her that only he was looking out for her welfare, being a law enforcement officer sold it. Aren’t cops supposed to be the “good guys”?

He got her to change an Irrevocable Trust by arresting the trustee, the person who is entrusted to protect the trust, Matthew Groelinger, for stealing from her estate, exploitation of an elderly person.  Those charges were later dismissed, nolle proseqi, but only after Scott was named the new trustee of Rogers Trust and Estate, valued into the millions of dollars in real estate and assets. New documents have been released, authenticating Haines’s abuse of power and profiteering off of this woman.

This is the link to land sales to Haines for the sales of tracts of land owned by Rogers, deeded to Haines for $20 each (estimated value of each tract is $20K+).

These are the links to evictions from Rogers’s trailer park, executed by Rogers. The notes in Rogers own handwriting show her confusion and that she, not only believes Scott is her grandson, but that he is forcing her to evict these people and she doesn’t know why.

Haines & Young: WTF?

Having gotten a glimpse into the daily life of David Morgan and his cronies, via court order, from Judge Rodger Vinson, the ECSO provided text messages between Chief Deputy Haines including other members of the administration, like David Morgan and Mindy Young, among others..  The text messages produced validated many whispers about what is going on behind the scenes and prove the corruption of this administration.

The fact that the court had to issue an order for such common and completely public records is astounding; any person in a position of leadership at the ECSO should know their responsibility of operating in manner transparent to the taxpayers. Public Record laws are not a new creation but an existing process are meant to create successful, transparent operation of our government at every level. Public Records of ECSO belong to the citizens of the county and should be provided when requested, without all the drama of having to cover something up.

Reading the court order by Judge Vinson can shows his frustration with the ECSO for not being completely transparent with these text messages.

THE COURT: Well, obviously Chief Deputy Haines is the

one that you’ve sort of focused on specifically, because he said

he didn’t use his private phone.

THE COURT: Well, let me tell you where I am so we

can — perhaps we can save some time. I don’t find anything

that’s happened here warrants sanctions, so we can set the

sanctions request aside, because I think there’s ample grounds

for saying this wasn’t necessarily encompassed.

Chief Deputy Haines’ private phone, though, is

certainly open to reopen, because even though it wasn’t an

absolute negative, it was left as a negative response saying he

didn’t use it. So I think — I think that’s open to further

discovery. And the question is, in addition to that, what else

and where else do we go.

 

The existence of county business on his personal cell (which happens routinely)  in the form text messages to and from Haines prove he was untruthful and lied under oath about the use of his phone. The near sexting event that occurred between Mindy Young and Eric Haines was a bonus  and a mounting proof of the corruption. I doubt anyone would have condoned the supervisor-employee communication that is this  inappropriate especially when you consider she is currently  investigating him.  And it is most certainly obvious this group felt comfortable enough to openly discuss mishandling of investigations and other ECSO business.  The constant ego stroking shouldn’t be a shock.

Pages from show_temp010720

What should be a shock is that Haines continues to work in the same capacity even after a federal judge rules Haines was less than honest. In fact, Haines has been found to have fallen short of having the integrity that is expected of a law enforcement official at that level.  Haines was promoted beyond his capability as a law enforcement officer. Few if any have ever truly had any respect for him or his terroristic style of leadership. Haines demonstrated what occurs when an administrator lacks actual skills and experience in law enforcement and is escalated to a level he isn’t qualified to fulfill. It would be far too difficult to debate a law enforcement issue, beyond the theoretical, for Haines. He has exactly as much law enforcement experience on a basic level as Morgan.  This lack of experience forced them both to resort to abuse of  power to control those that have law enforcement experience and those that question their leadership.

When reading the text exchanges between Haines and Mindy Young consider this could be you or your loved one being discussed. Imagine making a complaint concerning an issue as important as your career. The complaint is filed in accordance with every rule and law. You believe the investigation is occurring with an investigator that is objective and fair. Then you learn that the person you made a complaint about under investigation by their SUBORDINATE! Obviously, this is disturbing!

As the investigation continues, there is a presumption that there is a true effort being made by the investigator to discover the truth. The unusual relationship of investigator and subject officer is still lingering in the back of your mind, questioning the most basic sense of decency. Everyday you have to question if the corruption you believed to exist does exist. That is what this is. CORRUPTION.

 

The text messages between Haines and Young leave no doubt about corruption was a real concern. Imagine reading the words “fuck those people” knowing that comment was intended to describe the feelings the investigator has you. Then realizing that the investigator you doubted from the beginning is discussing your case with the person you complained about! The investigator is upset at not being able to share a special dinner because of an investigation she is conducting on the subject officer. Her response is a promise to “sting” the complainant and proclaiming a waste of her time to complete the investigation. As if there could be any doubt left of an “understanding” between Haines and Young, she is even told by Haines “you will make a good commander one day”.

Pages from show_temp0107202

The described actions of the two ECSO administrators are criminal. Again, this is perfectly acceptable behavior for administrators, according to this administration. No action is taken to respond to the improper behavior of law enforcement professionals. Each day that passes is proof the current leadership is not opposed to the conduct displayed by Haines and Young. Obviously, there is a relationship between the two that would prevent anyone from believing there was a chance of objective finding in the investigation.

The ECSO has become indifferent to justice and the law. To true law enforcement professionals that take pride in serving their community, this is disgraceful. The current leadership has made the ECSO an example of what happens when amateur, egotistic, self-serving imposters are allowed to ruin a law enforcement agency and the community.  It is time that the issues that continue to plague the ECSO be taken into hand. Enough consideration has been given to the tantrums of Morgan and Haines and clearly, even with all their self-praise for one another, all they have achieved is an absolute failure making the agency a joke.

The facts described here should confound any law enforcement official that values integrity and honesty. And it should frighten people to the core that law enforcement professionals within the agency that see the dissent and are too cowardly to do anything about it are the same people that are supposed to be protecting you from the evil in the world.  If anyone wearing a badge refuses to stand up for themselves, can you really rely on them to protect you?
