This case has been close to my heart as a mother and a criminologist because I know the psychological damage that occurs when a child is sexually assaulted. Now factor in the fact the kids’ mother put them in a situation to be exploited by law enforcement. What does that tell the kid? Family can’t be trusted to protect them and neither can the justice system. How dare Anne Patterson let Mark Smith get away with this. The man used his little girl to lure teenage girls in his home. He drugged and videotaped them as he raped them. Yet his charges have now been reduced from 3 counts to 1 and it isn’t even sexual battery; it is simple felony battery on a minor. In theory, since he plead not guilty and the video evidence is conveniently no longer available, Mark Smith could walk AND GET HIS BADGE BACK! WTF!!!!!!!
I suppose I shouldn’t be shocked. When I did the Erin Ambrose story, I found pictured of her with her friend the Honorable Judge Frydrychowicz. Of course, the pictures not to be found now but they are both runners in local events. Look for them together as well as the dirty deputies that Ms. Ambrose–excuse me–Mrs. VonAnsbach Young colludes with.
Everyone that reads this and that lives in Escambia County, I sincerely beg you to help the families of the young victims of the ECSO and now the State Attorney’s Office. Every child in Escambia County is now at risk of being exploited, molested, raped and ignored since this son of bitch is going to walk. That’s not justice. If you ever wanted to help change your community, this is the opportunity for the citizens to take back the community from the good ole’ boys. VOTE MORGAN OUT 2016. Call the State Attorney’s office…flood their office with calls asking them why they would do such a thing. Call the Sheriff, ask him why he helped a sexual predator go free. DO SOMETHING, I BEG YOU!
This case just gets more deprecating the more facts that are released. Two sources at the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, confirm that the minors that were sexually assaulted by the Mannings and Sheriff Deputies, were the twin daughters of Leah Manning by a previous marriage. One of the 17 year old’s thought she was pregnant, presumably by one of the 2 deputies involved in this circus of a case. The same 2 sources have also confirmed that between 10 & 12 OTHER deputies, including 4 lieutenants and 1 commander, have participated in sexual activities with the Mannings. It is unknown how many of those deputies have had sexual contact or molested the teenage daughters.
The truth of the matter is this lifestyle is common knowledge and tolerated at the Sheriff’s department and the arrest of the 2 deputies was only prompted by a Gulf Coast Children’s Home Society tip about the pregnancy of the one of the teens. The child advocacy group’s their insistence on action being taken is the only reason this story ever broke. The depths of the Morgan knowledge is non-deniable as it is rumored he may also be a party to such a lifestyle which is completely legal as long as the participants are consenting and of age of consent. Unfortunately, this kind of sexual deviance tends to be progressive in the directions which it tends to advance. For example, there is higher probability of participation in pornographic videos, photos and other more salacious sexual predilections of which child exploitation and child pornography are on the periphery.
The fact that the Sheriff would not root out any and all deputies who may have violated the teens is one of the most reprehensible act and the aura of culpability around this Sheriff and his boys in blue cannot be tolerated. These are the public servants Escambia County citizens look to for safety. Would you trust your kids in their presence? I damn sure wouldn’t.
Is there any doubt why this Sheriff and his “Good Ole Boys” including his puppets Rick Outzen and David Craig along with Bill Eddins (who allows for this sort of behavior) should not be run out of town on a rail? Rick Outzen won’t report on it and David Craig will try to minimize it while Bill Eddins sweeps it all under the rug. C’mon Escambia County, wake up! Are you really going to re-elect these people?
