Same Crap, Different State Attorney

Featured

This is a hard truth that I hoped would not be so but the State Attorney’s Office is still operating questionably. I got a tip about a case that that was handled inappropriately. The case involves a grandfather of either a former or current Santa Rosa Sheriff’s deputy. It doesn’t appear he actually is a deputy there but I won’t say with certainty that he isn’t. The deputy’s name is Joshua Carlson. His father is Alvah B. Carlson Jr, and grandfather is Alvah B. Carlson Sr. Sr. lives in Milton and Jr. lives in Navarre. Then tip was specifically about the Jr. He reportedly masturbated on a property where he was trespassing on camera but failed to get arrested for it. But then more crazy comes out about this family. Jr. was arrested in August 2022 for getting a DUI in his official cruiser

Former Houston County deputy charged with DUI

ELBA, Ala. (WDHN) — A former Houston County sheriff’s deputy has been fired after being charged with a DUI.
Alvah Carlson, 38, of Elba, was arrested in Elba on a driving while intoxicated charge on Wednesday night. He was arrested after driving his patrol car erratically, according to a source close to WDHN.
After receiving the charge, Carlson was terminated Wednesday night, according to Houston County Sheriff Donald Valenza.
Carlson has previously worked as an Elba police officer and a Brantley police officer.
In regards to Carlson’s charge and firing Sheriff Valenza said:
“I’m not going to tolerate this (behavior).”
He was released from the Coffee County Jail on a $1,000 bond Thursday morning.

But this is only the beginning of the craziness. His father was arrested in 2019 on a litany of charges. Here is the arrest report:

So after inquiring with some people in Santa Rosa, supposedly this deal was cut due to Sr. being terminal and the source claimed he is dead. I found no evidence of him being dead. No transference of property; no probate; no obituary. This appears to be a bad deal made with this guy.

This shit happens more than it should in this day and age.

If anyone knows the specifics or has proof this man is dead, please contact me. Otherwise, this is just another sad case in the Florida Panhandle.

Double-Talking Underling

Underhill (aka Underling) posted this in Escambia Clan Watch regarding the county settlement with a woman discriminated against by the Fire Chief.

My question would be if the Commissioner believed the words–the above words–should apply to all people employed by the county?

His political bromance with Morgan colors his judgment to the fact of what kind of “leader” his buddy is to his staff.  The “Honorable” Commissioner’s attention should be turned to the article by Dr. James Scaminaci on May 26, 2016, GENDER AND RACIAL DISCRIMINATION IN THE ECSO IS NOT A JOKE.

There are 5 lawsuits discussed while, in actuality, there have been MANY other instances and MANY other lawsuits.  Rhonda Ray, Jacquelyn Gulley, Laura Montoya, Beyanca Cannon, Mindy Pare. All gender discrimination and at least 3 are racial discrimination. If Chief Grace was so wrong for his actions in the Fire Department, why isn’t the same action on a much bigger scale worthy of looking into?

As Scaminaci says:

“I think that when you find that five different women at five different times complaining of racial and/or gender discrimination and they are then subjected to retaliation via Internal Affairs investigation (or other investigation or near-immediate termination), then I believe you have the factual basis to conclude that there may be a pattern and practice of creating a hostile work environment for women of color (and women), a pattern and practice of racial and/or gender discrimination, and a pattern and practice of retaliation against those very same women. “

Another line in Scaminacis’s article says it all. “Once a woman files a complaint to protect their rights, dignity, and career, it appears that the full force of the office of the Sheriff is dedicated to beating these women down into submission.”

On top of the injury created by the Sheriff in these cases, Underling provides the insult by putting the Fire Chief’s victim on a pedestal while the 5+ women in the ECSO, just lose their reputation, their careers, their chance to be what they are called to be….COPS. How much is that worth?

 

 

ECSO Discipline: Different Strokes for Different Folks

I got a copy of this sent to me and I know little about this.  I’m posting this for someone to contact me with info.

While I know that Jeremy Smalls was disciplined for a similar action after a tirade by Chief Deputy Nonsense and legal counsel Gerry Champagne. While I do not know who “Jessica” is, I know that it was her who clarified the familial condition to the administration causing the disciplinary actions Smalls faced, including suspension for this same act (sans the fraud to cover it up).

So while I am not surprised, I am publishing this for clarity by those involved.  Y’all know how to reach me.
