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

 

 

 

It Doesn’t Get Any Better than this!

You know when you have someone tell you something emphatically, but then turns around and does just what they emphatically told you they WOULD NOT do, well you just have to relish your good fortune or laugh like hell at the irony.

No more commentary.  I will let the facts tell themselves.

Setting:

“Rumors” around the ECSO were that the Perdido satellite precinct office would be closed. Also Chip Simmons was hired to work as Chief Deputy. People had to assume the current Chief Deputy was going to be replaced.

Making America Great Again–Just Not Escambia County

republican-sweep-cagle-nov-10-2014-jpg-600x488-clipularThe country has spoken. They are tired of the Clinton-Bush America and need something better. While I will readily admit Rand Paul would have been my choice, the fact of the matter was that was not an option. Albert Einstein said, ““Laws alone can not secure freedom of expression; in order that every man present his views without penalty there must be spirit of tolerance in the entire population.”

The protests and demonstrations on the left seems nonsensical.  A segment of society that wants to be heard as equal & be able to express their legitimacy as individuals and as segments within society, have the the inability or unwillingness to accept that some people might choose, for morally legitimate reasons, to have the freedom to do just that–choose–to opt out of that line of thought. That is not prejudice that is agreeing to disagree. I don’t have to share your political ideology or your religious dogma to appreciate you as a person. Please afford me that same respect. By trying to control the American voice, is like trying to herd cats.

America has many voices and yours is just one of many.  These voices elected Carter. These voices elected Reagan. These voices elected Bush…Clinton….W. and Obama. America ebbs and flows. The one thing that should be said is that as Americans we are unique. The uniqueness is what keeps us exceptional. We are all Americans and the factions and groups we split ourselves into only weaken us as a whole. Friggin’ be American and that will make America great.

Now to address the elephant in the room: the election of David Morgan for a third term.

Mr. Morgan,

As hard as it is to say, I am glad you got re-elected. I know you must be as surprised as most people are by this statement. Please allow me to explain.  For the last 4 years, I have learned so much about Escambia County. I have learned about your constiuents, your employees, your former friends, colleagues and more importantly the people you have immolated. Those are the people who will be the most influential in seeing you get your due.

By indiscriminantly marring so many people, you have made my allies diverse and their experiences form a distinctive pattern of how you “conduct” yourself and your self-interests. You are consistent and live up to even the worst of  the statements about your character. You excel at hubris. In fact, you are literature worthy. Some of the best written novels could not develop antagonists as impetuous and so resolutely undisciplined. That is your legacy.  Your continuing to be sheriff gives me an opportunity to be the end of your story in Escambia County.

Our destinies are inextricably intertwined. Your legacy will be part of my story. My story is bigger than yours in the long run. Trust me on this. As surely as the sun comes up, this is so. Your re-election was fortuituous for me as it gives me more time to show what is so evident to so many already. It also gives you time for the hubris you cultivated to expand exponentially.  The voters did not vote you in as much as they voted for the Republican ticket or even the alliance you made with Chip Simmons,b9316385517z-1_20150227173236_000_ghha3406a-1-0-jpg-1200x630-clipular whose public persona is largely less tarnished than yours. Hold on to those coattails. We are going on a hell of a ride.  Your legacy awaits.  The ivory tower can get as tall as the heavens, making an enormous fall from that tower.  That is the consolation that these next 4 years will provide for me, as with so many other people.

Defeated? No.  Secondwind? Damn Straight!

Truly,

JL

 

 

From the Horses’ Mouths….NO DIGNITY

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

No dignity

  1. Do not take any of this as personal. It is not intended to offend any person. It is an observation. The admin staff has some folks that always had the respect of the people they worked with as cops. They were people that others considered able and willing to be good cops. Then comes Morgan.

    Morgan slips into the mix and things begin to change. He was hiding behind others because he had no law enforcement knowledge to pull from. He used others to protect him from being identified as the incompetent CEO that he is. When things went wrong he destroyed their life and careers. He called it “tough choices” and tried to create a belief he was really the one in charge. He isn’t and never will be. He has sacrificial lambs that he throws out when something goes really wrong.

    He reached a point that EH was the next in line. EH has an agenda of his own and it showed in his failed attempt to be the shot caller. What he did do was manage to make all of the people that had respect fear him. They allowed greed and fear to dictate what decisions they made and didn’t recognize it was a mistake to follow such a weak leader. They were only concerned with moving upward. They lost respect and relationships because EH knew he had to separate the strong and neutralize their influence on the deputies that followed them. It worked because they turned their back on everyone and became the “leaders” EH said they should be.

    Now EH has dismantled the ECSO to the point that we can’t function close to what is needed. He has created a very dangerous situation and had people believing the generation changes caused it. That would be a good excuse if it was occurring everywhere and not just in Escambia county. He created fear for the staff and fed them the information to assist in the process. They followed because they don’t want to lose their spot. They knew it was wrong but would stand up and take the chance of paying the price for crossing the furor.

    How does this end? EH will walk away with a fat high five. He will muddle around until he gets his retirement and pretend he was a competent leader. He will make some money on that by teaching and talking about stuff he never did or better never could do.

    Those who compromised their beliefs to be part of the crowd gets to see the ladder they were climbing get pushed over. Morgan will peddle their jobs put to those willing to play his game. Those who dedicated their careers to this place will be tossed out. It is exactly like he said in his first campaign. He doesn’t believe there are any competent people here and used all of you. You lost so much trying to be good enough for the puppet master. Your were not and never could have been. Of all that you lost the one thing you could never recover is your dignity. It is sad that you all allowed that and even became a part of the plan to rid yourself out of a job.

    Morgan likes to use the term “wither on the vine” when he no longer has a use for someone and wants them to go away.

    It will not matter. None of those people have it in them to admit when they are wrong. The embarrassment would be too much. They continue on allowing the same bullshit happen by the same people. Once you lose your dignity you slowly die or wither on the vine. I would believe he says exactly that.

    Think about who you are talking about. EH, SA, SH, FF, BC, TY, TG, LD, to identify a few. In that crowd you have a wife beater, drunk, cry baby, one that’s always been lazy and avoided work, a selfish fat con man, and the leader of them has NEVER been a cop. He in fact does all he can to trash talk cops and tells everyone he doesn’t trust cops because they are liars. How does a man who beat his wife to the point of needing medical attention ever stay a cop much less a ranking cop? Then you have another that is such a baby he fights in court for months over wedding gifts because he could only married to her for a couple of hours. That is so hard to believe. Then you have one that can’t pay people enough to work for him and he does things to act like he is so professional. Why wouldn’t his boss ask the question of why he has a person that no deputy wants to work for ever. Is it because he is a little fat man with a bad attitude or because he talks about people behind their back. Maybe because he treats people like trash or pulls his gun out on them and acts like playing with a gun is ok. His boss don’t care because he is always drunk. A pathetic group. Embarrassing to the agency. If they had any trait close to being a man they would walk away for the way they have raped our employees for their good and nothing more. They will get a dose of their own medicine one day when they are on the hook having to answer for the wrongs they have continued to commit. Maybe if DOJ or somebody will look and see they are terrible people with no conscious and should never be in the places they are now. It wouldn’t be soon enough if it happened today.

    I couldn’t have said it better myself!

I Hate to Say “I Told You”….

Since late 2015, I postulated that Mark Smith of the Manning Sex Case would “walk” away from these crimes. On Thursday last week, that theory was proven true. I have been distressed to come up with a post in response to this crazy ass decision.  The way this case played out was more odious than I could have never perceived the events as they manifested. Not only did this degenerate “walk”, but he was found “not guilty”.  He can NEVER be held accountable for the crimes known to have been committed against Brittany Cutting or Kaitlyn and Kayla Rogers. How could that be possible? Ask Sir David.  He is the puppeteer of this tragedy.

I can hear people saying, under their breathe, that I blame Sir David for the rain. If only that were so. It would be easier to dismiss me and this post by saying I am on a crusade against what I perceive is the Devil himself. Regrettably the Devil himself could not evoke the despondency Sheriff Morgan has in the heart of girls whose only sin was the family they were born into.

I cannot make a more compelling case for the imprisonment of Mark Smith. I have put document after document out there that support the predatory nature of this man’s heart. I’ve asked the question as to how he got a badge to begin with. He was discharged from the US Navy due to a “Personality Disorder”. He explains he was young and threatened suicide. However, being familiar with military protocol, I know you don’t get out of your obligation to serve that easily. For this reason for discharge, there must have been evidence to justify that Smith was a LIABILITY to the service.

Furthermore, a fellow cop who has 15 years experience in criminal investigations was persuaded to investigate a colleague. Not only that but he convinced a judge, who most certainly was apprehensive in issuing the search warrant, to find cause to effectively shred the credibility of deputy. For this case to be so compelling as to have an investigator come forward on his own as well as a judiciary who finds legal sufficiency to go after a law enforcement officer is HUGE.

To question the judgment of the arresting officer, Zack Ward is question all cases in his 15 years of service at the Sheriff’s office, including the Billings Case. If the evidence Inv. Ward found was not legally sufficient in the eyes of the jury, how could it have been sufficient for the State Attorney?  The question here is who dropped the ball.In a press conference BEFORE THE MANNINGS WERE ARRESTED, Morgan says:

 We received some information downloaded from computer systems involving this case,” said Morgan. “We have over 100,000 images that have to be reviewed in addition to videotapes. As you can well imagine what a labor-intensive process that’s going to be for us to go through all of that material.”

This means there were images from Smith, Thomas and/or the victims. Yet in a Facebook conversation 10/4/15 with Eric Haines, Chief Deputy of the ECSO, he says:

 I unloaded on him including attacking his religiosity.  But the point is clear, Morgan says there were videos and images

but NOW Haines says, there aren’t any videos and pictures. No video or picture evidence was presented to the jury.

What happened to them?

IN ADDITION, lest we forget my post from over a year ago:

yourprezi_Page_04

Erin Ambrose is the starting point because the entirety of the story seemingly circles back to her. She is also the person in this story with the most influence and has the greatest obligation to do the right thing. Her job title and ethical responsibility is higher than the rest and her part in this story is the most egregious. This is not an isolated incident for the State Attorney’s office. They have been more concerned with covering things up rather than pursuing justice. This is case merely epitomizes what happens on a day to day basis under Bill Eddins and his cronies.

Ms. Ambrose, Assistant State Attorney for the First Judicial Circuit, is engaged to a deputy by the name of Jason Young (Jason Von Ansbach Young).

10697416_10100595171443963_3087119126674280417_o (1) Jason is probably the least culpable of the bunch. While he is an adult and a law enforcement officer, which, in and of itself, carries responsibility for serving and protecting the public, he is not an active participant in endangering children; he is, however, complicit.

Jason’s brother and soon-to-be best man in his wedding in January is Ryan Von Ansbach Young, an ex-deputy who is married to Mindy Von Ansbach Young, a current Lieutenant at the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.

 10763_1063480463680611_818962773520710047_n1919474_100376989990968_4173802_n

The Von Ansbach Youngs have foster children as well as their own children. Ryan Von Ansbach Young posted bail for his wife’s colleague, Mark Smith on 3/09/2015. This act which had to be known by the Sheriff’s Office due to the hand in hand relationships they have with bail bondsmen. If they did not know, it is because they did not want to know. Having a deputy, Ryan’s wife, suborning the release of a child sex offender, by extension, shows complicity of the entire organization for which she and her family represent. This is also the caveat that Ms. Ambrose falls prey to.

It is telling that this impropriety and the ability to connect this sort of deviant, sex offender with the people who are supposed to police and cage these monsters. Cozying up with them off the clock shows how little regard they have for the humanity they are supposed to be protecting. Of course, this gives a bad message to all that have knowledge of it. Of course, it de-legitimizes the entire criminal justice system in Pensacola, because cronyism trumps proper handling of criminal cases. This is the downfall of the entire community.

10173692_686024901453670_2236079528720823431_nyourprezi_Page_03

The malfeasance is that with all these children in their home, the Von Ansbach Youngs, all current or prior law enforcement professionals, allow a sex offender into their home. They allow said offender to come and go freely with children in the home.

Sr. Deputy Mark SmithEscambia Sheriff's K-9 tops at national trials - Studer Community Institute.clipular

The sex offender, who should not have contact with children is Mark Smith, an ex-Senior Deputy of the Escambia Sheriff’s Office. He is awaiting adjudication currently for multiple counts of sexual battery/rape of children over 16 and under 21, which has been minimized through the State Attorney’s office. Most counts being reduced to misdemeanors, even though there is video evidence of his impropriety as well accounts of sexual misconduct against others that the Sheriff’s dept. refused to acknowledge (See my post “Where’s Gavin?“)

Coming full circle back to Erin Ambrose, who is SUPPOSED to be an advocate of the children molested, battered and raped by  Walter Thomas and of course Mark Smith, who were both Escambia County Deputies at the time of the offenses.

10473866_10204243856329120_2942019695593477156_n 1015429_10200868804664193_937361007_o

The most malicious of the acts in the fact that not only is Ms. Ambrose violating her position as Assistant State Attorney by being involved personally with a case she is prosecuting but she is closely entangled in this family that neglects their moral and ethical duties as servants of the county and officers of the court to protect children against exposure to child sex predators. She knows what happens in this close knit family that she is about to become apart of and is aware of Smith’s consistent presence in the home as well as his “access” to the children. That is a conflict of nature that corrupts the entire justice process.

The girls victimized by these sexual predators are not being protected by the system. The system is more interested in covering its as. In addition to this situation, regarding this same case, Sheriff David Morgan effectively endowed Gulf Coast Kids House with $50K for a new wing AFTER he personally became aware of the abuse of his deputies on children. This was a stop-gap measure to preemptively control the reaction of the Gulf Coast Kids House when the story inevitably became public. These two organizations colluded to sweep this incident under the rug with Gulf Coast Kids House turning a blind eye to the additional victims that may have been affected by the deputies that Sheriff Morgan failed to investigate.

How Morgan & the PNJ Will Be Downfall of the Billings Convictions

Featured

Criminal Justice expert Dr. Edward J. Bronson recently analyzed the pre-trial publicity in the Billings Murder case. It was a fascinating look at just the local newspaper coverage. The reason he was called to look at this has to do with the fact that it has become an inarguable fact that press coverage prior to trial impacts jury verdicts. There have been 44 empirical studies with 5500+ people by dozens of social scientists over the last three decades.

The biggest shocker of Dr. Bronson’s analysis was that the Billings Murder case–overall–is the 27th highest publicized case EVER. This case rivals OJ, the Lindbergh baby, Bundy, Zodiac, Son of Sam and Jon Benet Ramsey just for starters. The average high publicity case has around 100 articles written about the case, pretrial. The PNJ & InWeekly did 250 articles on this case. Each of these articles were biased against the defendants, particularly Pat Gonzalez Jr. Not one of these articles were by anyone close to Gonzalez Jr or who advocated his character in any way, despite his contributions to the community, although the Sertoma club “Man of the Year” award was mentioned in passing as was high martial arts career. Not one of these articles offers any other theory of the crime or any leads outside the narrative the Sheriff concocted.

The Michigan Supreme Court ruled to delay a trial by 9 mos because of 1 news comment by an attorney on a Sunday morning at 6 AM. The judge determined the attorney had the potential to have tainted the jury pool with this one appearance. In comparison, Sheriff Morgan held press conferences up to twice a day locally; he spoke on Dateline NBC, Nancy Grace, Oprah Winfrey and Larry King to name a few. He said things like, “extremely gruesome scene”, “hateful, senseless crime” “bad seed” (speaking of Gonzalez Jr.), “stupid thugs” and referred to the Billings as “very good Christian people”.  Adding on to the fact, Morgan greeted the Grand Jury panelists prior to the indictments of Gonzalez Sr and Jr. He shook each person’s hand and said things like, “I’ve done my job; now it’s time for you to do yours”. This seems like a directive from the highest law enforcement officer in the community.

The PNJ articles were extremely damaging as they are the only point of printed news in the area. 174 times the death penalty was mentioned in relation to this crime—prior to any trial commencing.  This is extremely damning because the implication is that these people deserve death, before the facts of the case or the defenses were laid out.

Dr. Bronson noted that he had never seen more inflammatory comments within the PNJ by the reporters and in letters to the editor prior to trial. There was no possible way a reasonable person could consider that an unbiased jury could be had in this community. Judge Geeker doesn’t think this is an issue but ultimately this will go to the US Supreme Court, who has no ties to Escambia County corruption.

As for the media circus that propelled Morgan’s career and ultimately kept him in office, here’s the take away: David Morgan whored himself out to every news outlet possible. He was the source of most people’s knowledge of this case. As the community and world has seen with every instance in Morgan’s tenure where he smiles pretty for the camera, he seldom is the most accurate point of information. He stretches the truth and even lies to make himself seem important. Why would it be any different with this case? Good news for all the defendants, because if Pat Gonzalez gets a new trial, the flood gates of motions and lawsuits will dominate what was the old news of this case….with Morgan as the punchline.

not a sheriff

Views from Inside the ECSO: A Deputy Speaks Out

 

Over the last year, I have had many deputies come to me in fear of speaking out themselves. They have been sources for my posts and have had to be cloaked in the shadows because of the threat of losing pensions, job security, and an unbelievably hostile work environment. Today that changes. One deputy wants his words to be heard.

This is a deputy’s view of the inside of David Morgan’s Sheriff’s administration. This is the “good morale” Morgan spoke of in the debates.

635614962314354267-ecsobadge

I would say that the vast majority of deputies in Escambia County are good people that had good intentions when choosing law enforcement as a career. It takes dedication to accomplish becoming a deputy.  It requires a person to complete Basic Recruit training, “Rookie School” as the deputies refer to it, before even being considered for a job by an agency. This job will start out at less than 35K a year and offer little appreciation from the public. I am sure some would believe that is a decent wage. It is a decent wage if you take away a few elements of the occupation. First, take away the fact that every call you respond to is a person that is at the worst point of their day. Take away that often law enforcement officers are confronted with armed suspects that will kill cops. Take away that officers are among the highest rate of divorce. Take away that most of the career will be spent dealing with the negative aspects of society. Now, with all of that out of the way it wouldn’t be a bad salary.

The truth is that you can’t take away those parts. Those are parts of the job that create most of the issues for law enforcement officers. Those parts are what will create the perception that cops are assholes. It is those parts that will cause a cop to believe the world is a bad place. The sad part is that cops will discover that the worst part of the job will come from the administration. As if dealing with the public that does not appreciate you isn’t enough, they get to deal with administrators that care more about how they look than how the officers are performing. It is very common to find that administrators are often not the ones that stood out as a great cop. It is sometimes that those in administration stood out as straight up ass kissers. If you haven’t already guessed it–that is very helpful, depending on who is picking the administration.

The problem with the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office is a very simple problem to solve. Get Morgan out! If you consider that the number one guy (AKA Car 1) has never been and never will be a cop, it is no surprise that Escambia county gets a top ranking in the state for violent crime. Car 1 has never made an arrest as a deputy sheriff in any county…………ever. Yet, he will sit in judgement of those who have a decade or longer in the career. That seems odd in any situation. I could never be convinced that any person could be qualified to be in charge of a profession that lacks any credible experience in that profession. I have heard Morgan make the claim that he has 100 years of experience or some bullshit in PRIVATE and professional law enforcement.   What in the hell is PRIVATE law enforcement? Laws are created by government and enforced by government. If there were such a thing as private law enforcement, I would apply and have Morgan arrested for impersonating an officer. That is a ridiculous statement that makes absolutely no sense. The term for private law enforcement officer is a vigilante and is a violation of law. He should have considered that before bragging about being a private investigator and calling it law enforcement.   The point is this is the top of the Escambia county Sheriff’s Office. The top guy has never made an arrest, is not a certified officer, and could not even run a shift on patrol.

Most would believe that the top guy would be intelligent enough to recognize that although he may not know how to be a cop, he has almost 500 cops to choose from that do know. Well…..you would be wrong. His Chief Deputy Eric Haines is not much better. He did get certified and passed a state test. The end! He goes downhill from there. This is a guy that spent a minimal amount of time on a patrol shift. If he has made more than 50 arrests in his career it would shock every deputy at the ECSO. He was promoted quickly through the ranks and then comes Morgan. Morgan picks this guy to be Car 2. If you read the bio on Haines, he says he worked patrol and was Sgt. at Pensacola Beach. Get the f**k out of here! That’s it……nothing else. Not investigations or narcotics maybe a specialized task force? Nope just that and that’s it. Now he did move to the inside and worked a variety of desk jobs. It would be compared to mowing the grass at Turner Field so they ball players could play ball. Not much of a cop is an understatement. Not the first round draft pick most leaders would appoint to this position.

Moving down the line we get to Car 3. Cmdr. Dale Tharp. Now this guy knows his stuff. I pissed myself laughing just typing that. He is by far one the biggest ass kissers in the history of living cells on Earth. He worked in SRO since the program was started. He did nothing to prove himself or gain any respect of the officers. He would never attempt to have his own opinion unless he accidently thought the same thing as Morgan or Haines. He would cut the throat of his first born child to advance in the ranks. I bet he has not completed an arrest report in over 15 years.

All of that brings us back to the cops. They need leadership. If this were the United States government hierarchy we were talking about, we would be past the Speaker of the House and still have not found a leader. This organization will not survive another four years of this administration. The good officers that were at the ECSO are rapidly dwindling. The administration does not know how to be cops. That means they can’t lead by example or experience. That does not mean they sit idle in their office. They find plenty to do. They police the police. It is easy for them to police their own. They get to make the rules, define the rules, and judge you for breaking the rules.  Now if that is not a train wreck waiting to happen I do not know what is. In fact, the crash is occurring right now. We have dozens of vacant positions and very few qualified applicants. The ones that are there are scared to move fearing the administration will feel like working one day and they will be on a hit list. The ones that were the true leaders were too much of a threat to Haines and were forced away. That is what poor leadership will get you. Morgan is defining a level of poor leadership at the ECSO that will never be equaled. The problem is that he has to be stopped now. The county will not survive another four years of this collapse.

Don’t let David Morgan lie to you about the condition of the county or his deputies. He expects you to believe his words over the facts and testimony of other seasoned law enforcement officers. Remember the Emperor’s New Clothes?  The moral of that story is the same as this; people should not believe everything they are told without empirical evidence. The empirical evidence here is that crime is up, morale within the organization is disintegrating, and the citizens are paying the cost.

Escambia Citizens Watch=Escambia Gossip Clique

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Last week, as many people know, James Scaminaci endorsed a post of mine on FB-Escambia Citizens Watch. I have been blocked from that group so I did not see any of this unfolding until I looked at through a friend’s FB login. I only went there to get a copy of the shifty little degree Morgan claims is an MBA after Webster UNIVERSITY told me they had no record; technically that was true. He doesn’t have an MBA and he had the year wrong as well as the name of the institution–WEBSTER COLLEGE. While it is the same place, for the purposes of quality assurance, that fact may have been one of the issues in verification as it was prior to a major shift from college to university–a watershed moment in their history, but I digress.

12985595_10209279241444146_7602471676349631520_n

In looking at the posts of the unfolding of this whole thing, I became very aware of the cattiness of community. I posted a correction, but the group does not acknowledge that. It is made to look like James corrected me while, in point of fact, he was correcting himself. This fact is not seen, but I suppose I didn’t expect it to be. You see, this “free speech” group doesn’t allow me to see any of this.  To clarify, James did not “catch me” in  a lie, nor did he do anything extraordinary as he talked to the same person but received a different answer to the same question for reasons that are not clear.  While I acknowledge and corrected myself, the “free speechers”, led by Richard White and David Craig mocked me and my blog. They talked about me as if I was someone who fell off the turnip truck in a crazed vendetta against Morgan, after being dismissed by reliable people like Rick Outzen and Little Dickie White, while I compulsively talk about the Billings’ Murders.

Usually what other people say about me I regard as none of my business, however, I am regrettably disappointed by my peer, James Scaminaci for his part in this. He posted this in a place where I could not defend myself or do anything to accurately portray the circumstances. He misstated that Morgan’s degree of an MBA was verified as it was not. I was correct in my wording and I stand by it as such.

Also, I wanted to address the postings and comments of the peanut gallery.  I am involved in the Pensacola political arena because I am interrelated to the area, the people and the issues. It is my hometown. Most of my friends live there still. My “obsession” with the Billings’ case is even more basic. I am human. In my own curiosity over this case–AS IT UNFOLDED–I educated myself with the facts of the case as I was taking predominantly criminology classes at Eastern Michigan University from men who have LEGITIMATE DEGREES FROM NAMED SCHOOLS, who have wrote books on the subject and even presided over national-interest cases. When I didn’t find one shred of real evidence that someone I knew, Patrick Gonzalez Jr, was guilty, as a human I could not sit by idly and watch him be put to death for a crime he did not commit. We are all interrelated in mutuality on this Earth, so whatever injustice is done to one, it is done to all. That is an assertion made by our founding fathers as well as Martin Luther King Jr. in his “Letter from Birmingham Jail”. “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”.

In that understanding, I have used my time to research this case because it means something to me.The problem doesn’t just appear in this case. I assert that it is a systematic breakdown in the justice system everywhere. A death penalty case started and completed in 3 days is one fact that says it all. How could this elaborate case be reduced to 3 days when the question of life or death is involved?  What justice could that possibly entail? Two co-conspirators saying he did it to protect their self-interest and the confession of a mentally ill man who did not immediately confess but did so off the record after 3 days of being held without proper representation or medication; he was legally not able to make the confession they based the case on because of his mental impairment. You wouldn’t have a child under the age of 13 testify after being held without communication with a legal guardian, so why would you hold a mentally incompetent man without a lawyer for 3 days?

There is a feasting on the weak in this case. Young African American boys who confessed after being told they would receive the death penalty if they didn’t testify and a mentally handicapped and impaired person held, without medication, who makes some impromptu confession (unrecorded) to Bill Eddins directly.  This man was held for 2 years without a plea deal as leverage over the other men in custody until they were adjudicated. This man lost his life over this.  He died in prison of malnutrition from improper treatment of throat cancer.

NONE OF THIS IS RIGHT. So I use my time to try to make a difference.

Escambia Citizens Watch, I say, shame on you for not seeing what you should have seen right in front of you. Morgan is a FRAUD. EVERY CASE HE TOUCHED SHOULD BE REINVESTIGATED.not a sheriff

Finally to all involved in this little clique of gossip and misinformation, I say FUCK YOU. Read a book or invest your time into something substantial. Prove me the fuck wrong… Oh and by way, got something to say? By all means, say it to ME.

fuck you

 

 

 

***Correction**** Webster University Confirms Degree but Not Program

Whiteflag.jpg

This morning I received a reply after providing more identifying information in regards to Sir David.

Hi Ms. Staley,

Thelbert D. Morgan is a graduate of Webster University.  He received his Master of Arts degree in Business Administration on 3/9/1979.  He completed his coursework at our McConnell Air Force Base campus.  The MBA program did not start at Webster University until 1982.  Have a good day.

Best Regards,

Don

Nothing happens unless first a dream.”  Carl Sandburg

While this does not completely answer the question of what type of degree. A Master’s of Arts in Business Administration is different than the Master’s of Business Administration. A Master’s of Arts is essentially a humanities liberal arts/humanties degree that has an emphasis on management. A Master’s of Business Administration is honed in towards 30 hours of contemporary business specialties like marketing, economics and corporate law. These degrees are night and day apart.

As he represented himself in a half-truth as to when (1980 vs 1979), where (“Webster’s University” vs Webster College) and what degree he obtained (MBA vs Master’s of Art in Business Admin), I am not sure what he was attempting to lead people to believe is true. That is the “Thelbert Experience” in a nutshell. He does not market himself as he truly is. Would those differences have mattered much to the public? Probably not, but the fact, he broadened every aspect of that degree is indicative of how he expands the truth and how nothing he says can be taken at face value. There is always a con to one degree or another.

I concede…there was a degree but it was not as he represented it, which led to the confusion in confirming his education.

No worries, the military record will be enough.

Webster University Confirms No Degree

I previously posted about the National Student Clearinghouse reporting  that there was no record of David Morgan (Thelbert David Morgan) as being a graduate. In an effort to confirm or verify this information, I contacted Webster University directly. I spoke with Ms. Geraldine Lovejoy, yesterday April 11th, 201Directory Results - Webster University.clipular (1)6.  Ms. Lovejoy confirmed that not only was “Thelbert Morgan” not a graduate, he is not listed as ever being a student at any time.

In doing my own independent research after requesting this information in writing, I found that in 1980, there was no Webster University; it was Webster College and the only Master’s level class, Webster College was a Master’s in Teaching. In 1983, the college restructured its programs and expanded its curriculum. More programs were added and the name officially changed from Webster College to Webster University; however it was not until 1985 that the first MBA program was offered.bio

After  I confirmed this with more than one source, no one could have gotten an MBA at Webster University in 1980. After making that fact clear, I leave it to the people to decide what they think.

I am not a legal scholar. This level of misrepresentation is a career-ender in the private sector. Reputation and integrity are fixtures in employment agreements.  However, Mr. Morgan being an elected official, this is a horse of a different color. His job did not require that level of education but it is misrepresentation and fraud, which is a crime. Now we will see how corrupt the system is. Now that we all know he has lied, and lied and lied some more to the people of the community, let’s see how the community responds to this. Like I said, an average citizen would be looking for a new job.
