Ronald Clark Ball

Mr. Ball’s incarceration marks the point of no return in the crusade to de-throne corruption in Escambia County. Mr. Ball, being an author, a man of prestige & a globally renown lecturer in the understanding of the cyber threat as it relates to National Security, has become the latest name to the list of victims of abuse of power throughout the Escambia County government. Mr. Ball is not the typical victim, because he is not of a lesser demographic; he’s not a minority, nor a socio-economic nobody that is usually the profile of people marginalized by the Escambia corruption machine. People like Pat Gonzalez, or Michelle Clarke are denigrated by the “honorable” elite of the county due to their backgrounds or prior bad acts. People like Philip Nix, Bill Chavers, Gene Valentino, Anita Hemphill, Laura Montoya or the honorable other citizens who are outspoken in the abuses of the county,  are said to be suffering from a technical term by Sheriff Morgan known as “sour grapes”.  They have been wronged by the county and are labeled as trying to retaliate for their dismissals. That may have basis, if the list of people, who are suffering– allegedly — from “sour grape syndrome” didn’t hit double digits with the exact same complaints, including slander, defamation, civil rights violations, & discrimination.

No Mr. Ball does not suffer from any of the labels previously used by the GOB to discount people. He cannot be seen as I am by Sheriff Morgan, as a lone nut, who spews lies, “a political terrorist”. Mr. Ball has been silenced for a long time but that silence is broken. He cannot be dismissed as the rest of have.

Mr. Ball drafted a pro se motion to dismiss in June that is skillfully written and could be used by any of the above victims against varying agents of the Escambia corruption machine.  While his assertions may sound outlandish, I say to you that the actions against him are just that outlandish and bringing them to light is the right thing to do.

As I have said many times, the abuses of Escambia GOB are vast enough to be in violation of RICO (Racketeer Influenced & Corrupt Organization Law). This entails 2 or more felonies committed to further an ongoing criminal enterprise. The justice system in Escambia County is, itself, the criminal enterprise. The felonies are embezzlement, perjury, fraud and the list goes on and on.  Morgan arrests people, Eddins & his minions as well as various judiciary perpetuate the wrongful arrest through the court system to the tune of illegal seizures, defamation, and political gain.  The real violation is of the honest services clause.  According to 2017 Fall edition of  American Criminal Law Review, in an article by Alexander Sanyshyn, the honest services criteria is thus:

 Elements of the Honest-Services Doctrine

To be convicted under § 1346, an individual must (i) defraud the victim of honest services (ii) by accepting a bribe or kickback. n446

Defraud of Honest Services

Generally, a scheme to defraud of honest services takes place in a fiduciary or employer-employee relationship. n447 Such a fiduciary relationship is often present when one manages money for another’s benefit. n448 It may also be present when a voluntary trade association n449 or charitable and nonprofit organization is involved. n450 The employer-employee relationships that may give rise to an honest-services claim range from a shareholder-management relationship n451 to a government employee-private citizen relationship. n452 However, the duties owed by a public official and a private individual differ. n453

 [*1725]  The fraud need not be directly accomplished by the defendant–the defendant need only to have caused fraud to be committedn454 However, the defendant must be aware of, or participate in, the fraud committed by the third party. n455

 

This lays out the basis for many public corruption cases. The use of public power for private gain is the biggest risk associated with people in power.  The various prongs of corruption, quid pro quo corruption, undue influence in inequality corruption, misuse and abuse of power are all used to further the criminal enterprise that operates as the criminal justice & legal system in Escambia County. There is no justice to had in the system in Pensacola. No one is above the law and while that hasn’t been apparent to most people except those churned out by the system in my hometown, Mr. Ball’s case added to the 7 people in the Billings Case, specifically prove a pattern of behavior that spans over many years & many cases. The totality of injustice is astronomical in Escambia County.

Ron Clark Ball is going to the catalyst case that shines a light on the stuff Willie Junior was killed covering up. Get your popcorn, kids. The show is beginning.

I told Morgan that when he saw me coming, that hell was coming with me. He should be feeling the heat, because I am at his door.

Sheriff Morgan: Wrongful Death?

Two weeks ago today, Kayla Crocker had roughly 48 hours to live. Billy Boyette’s latest stolen car was found close to her home with receipts from Walmart showing purchases of camping equipment. Yet with that knowledge, Sheriff David Morgan opted to not bring in bloodhounds to check the woods close to the abandoned car. We now know that for 2 days, Boyette and Rice were in those woods, prior to invading Kayla’s home and brutally murdering her.18047838_1486432270.8322.jpg

Deputies approached me with information because Morgan was ENCOURAGED to use the resources available that could have ended the reign of terror the community felt. Social media was highly involved and invested in this manhunt. Could there be negligence in this lack of law enforcement action, intentionally ignored by Sheriff Morgan? It is worth investigating to say the least. Should Crocker’s people want more info on the deputies that came to me, I would be happy to put them in touch with said people.

13080202_G.jpg

Morgan’s lack of law enforcement experience was the pivotal factor here, either that or the good sense God gave a goat. Whichever was the case, this was preventable and his decisions were not congruent with catching this guy.  But he did want the media attention he got for this man’s rampage.

636220922944137228-ECSO-SWAT-Beulah-2.JPG

He even went so far as to second guess the teletype from Georgia stating that Billy Boyette and Mary Rice were there. While the standoff is happening in Georgia with someone talking to Boyette, Morgan dispatches a SWAT team to the landfill for a report of a backpacked man walking around.  Even while Morgan is contacted asking him for comment on Boyette’s death, he stammers and is evasive because he still has his men out.  Priceless, Morgan tries to upstage the actual standoff.  He is a piece of work & incompetent to a lethal degree in this case.

Commentary on the Escambia County Sheriff’s Forum May 23, 2016

I don’t know what to say. Should I start with the biased reporting of Kevin Robinson by claiming John Johnson “attacked” Sir David? Mr. Robinson does not understand the meaning of the word “attack” if he thinks that is what Johnson did.  Johnson merely unveiled the current conditions to the people. Morgan likes to whitewash the community erosion by saying it does not exist.  Escambia County isn’t Never Never Land. It evokes the tale of the Emperor’s New Clothes.  Sir David would have the citizens believe his rhetoric over the statistics, experiences of people around him. Let’s not forget the community vulnerability that cannot be explained away. Citizens are targets in their own sanctuary of Escambia County.  Where there is smoke, someone should be looking for fire.

Finally, to end this rant of bias by PNJ, Mr. Robinson, being a journalist, you should have a better grasp of vocabulary. Could you have used more legitimate wording?  Certainly! Challenged, confronted, impeached are all better descriptions of the dynamics of the forum. Unless Robinson’s vitriol was part of the propaganda machine of Team Morgan, there is no reasonable explanation of Robinson’s choice of words.  Ignorance or Venom—you decide.

P.S.

Mr. Robinson, do you or the PNJ get LET money to provide endorsements of political candidates?

Issues in the Forum

One of the most conspicuous things I noticed was roughly 19 minutes into the video. The moderator noted the long-standing corruption problem and asked what the candidates would do to increase public trust in the ethical (snicker) behavior of public officials. Sir David either misunderstood the question or he chose not to address “ethical behavior”. Funny how there is no reference to the “Good Ole Boy crew” he claims to have removed with McNesby. He’s put that song and dance to bed. Apparently, his hypocrisy has some limitations.

But He does jump into the fact he doesn’t have a “hate-filled Facebook page”.  What does that have to do with corruption or even unethical behavior? It is social media and campaign ads are simply not unethical.  What is unethical is putting a senior officer on admin leave for something that is purely a civil action between his mother and another officer. What is unethical is the targeting of personnel that do not agree with you and forcing another senior officer into early retirement for liking a anti-Morgan Facebook post. How about targeting women and minorities to make their employment environment a living hell of discrimination and condescension? These are unethical.

Perhaps Mr. Robinson and Sir David should take the same vocabulary lessons.

I could continue with the 10+ blatant prevarications & misdirections throughout the forum but I want to discuss something more offensive.  Sir David repeatedly started bombastic, defensive proclamations with “If Escambia County is so bad”.  This is a tragic effort to validate his re-election campaign by trying to bring the virtues of the county to light. He tried to take credit for everything Escambia County great.

So why do I care? There seems to be a perception that I am an outside agitator. That is far from the truth.  I spent the majority of my life in Escambia County.  I came to live with my Dad in 1986. He was a fisherman and a supervisor for BE&K (worked at International Paper).

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

His name was Jim Barnett (that’s why I’m Jimmie). My Dad was an exceptional man in a very un-exceptional world. He was a straight-shooter that people tended to love. His friends will attest to that, I was the pride and joy of his life. As his only child, he spoiled me rotten but in that, he did teach me the difference in right & wrong.

He passed away May 23, 1997. He was a veteran and was buried in Barrancas. There will always be a part of me in Pensacola.

I told that story to talk about the greatness of Escambia County, despite Sir David’s damage. Escambia County is not “so bad” as he would make it sound but he has been detrimental to entire county. He had no hand in making Escambia great, therefore he doesn’t have the power to take away that greatness.

The things that make Escambia great are the people, the values and the ability to live in a community for decades and NOT HAVE TO LOCK THE DOORS. By systematically fleecing the taxpayers, disrespecting the deputies and insulting the citizens, Sir David attempts to blame the community, but I submit to you that he cannot take away anything the constituency doesn’t allow him to take.

As for the disease of corruption, Sir David is patient zero. He is currently the biggest albatross Escambia County has. It is not the Sheriff Dept—it is him. He is either psychopathically delusional or sociopathically indifferent to the crime problem in the county. Sir David is the nexus of racism and discrimination in ECSO as well.  A double digit number of employees have filed lawsuits for discrimination, civil rights violations and hostile work environment.  DOUBLE DIGIT.  This is the largest number in recent history. Ronnie Mc did not have this sort of litigiousness.  When there are this many people seeking judicial relief because of animus at work, maybe it is time to consider the Sheriff is the problem.

In any other job, if you fail so completely by maliciously endangering the community, you get fired or arrested. If you misappropriate money, you go to jail. Why is Sir David allowed to sit in his office? Only the people of Escambia County can unseat this albatross.

Make Pensacola great again, VOTE MORGAN OUT-2016.

 

 

“MAJOR DRUG BUST” Purely Accidental

i-dont-parse

Sir David got some face time with this drug bust done several days ago. He was out of town at a marketing conference in New Orleans. This also allowed him time to develop this overblown story of a 4 year investigation that culminated in the seizure of $500K  of drugs.  There are many details of this “investigation” that are being propagated & are false.

To clarify, this pursuit may have been originated 4 years ago, but was it continually worked and on-going? The answer is yes and no. The dealer, Alfred Hayes, went by the nickname “E”. E has been tracked by a “stingray”. The deputies got a line that a deal was going down but prematurely hit the house only to find the money for drugs and no actual drugs. The money “was seized” but no arrests were made and paradoxically, the money was never recorded at the ECSO.

This week, the “bust” in the spotlight, a source who was inside the holding area reported Melissa Buchanan was stopped on a routine traffic stop. No one knows her from Adam. She is in possession and trafficking of a quantity of methamphetamine and is taken into custody. In the holding room at the ECSO, she is overheard trying to cover her own ass to try to make a deal. She calls E but he’s callous as to her arrest but she gives him 30 minutes to arrange her release. After the time expired, in her panic and feeling of being shunned, she dimed him and his cousins out. E is the grandson of a woman that owns a nursing home. The family had been selling prescription drugs of people who had passed on.  This is common knowledge in the community.

The prevarication of events in the press conference were a self-serving narrative developed over the days following these arrests for maximum political collateral for Sir David’s re-election efforts.  An accidental arrest turned sting…not a prolonged investigative effort that finally paid off.  Misdirection and misrepresentation of events…sounds vaguely familiar for the stories Sir David likes to deliver to the unknowing people of the county.

A Call to Action for Escambia County

Quote from a press conference 3/10/16 after a sting in Brownsville:

“You don’t have a law enforcement problem here you you’ve got a societal issue.”

I was absolutely floored that Sir David continues to blame the community for the crime problems. In a raid of Brownsville, they arrested 12 people who had been arrested some 49 times collectively. “We are doing our jobs by arresting them. This is a community problem.”

There are so many things wrong with that thought process. First of all, arresting criminals does not deter crime. The idea is to stop the crime prior to that arrest. If patrols are out interacting with the citizens of a county in a combined effort, crime is lower.  If you are proactive in a community, you don’t have to be reactive as this Sheriff is. Has he not read anything on criminal justice?  When you see an area turned around from crime-ridden to crime-free, they universally use specific components to succeed.  As I mentioned, establish a law enforcement presence through patrolling AND working with the community. If the community does not work with police, neither will be successful. Get the deputies out in the area meeting and interacting the community.

Secondly, directed patrol in “hot spots” at “hot times”. This prevents the crime prior to arrest. It makes it harder to be a criminal if the police are constantly where they do business. The presence of this uniformly in the county results in a safer county.

Thirdly, lead from the top. A fish rots from the head down. Without strong leadership, you have ineffective policing. Morgan has shown he does not have a clue as to how to fix this mess he created. His second in command, Chief Deputy Haines, has no practical investigative or policing knowledge. He spends his time policing social media. With these two role models, there is no clear directive. It’s like kids with two parents who aren’t around, what kind of stability or discipline can the child draw on, when they never see it in practice?

Lastly, funding actual activities within the community to detour crime is supposed to be what the LET (Law Enforcement Trust) Fund is geared toward specifically.  News Flash! The people Sir David is investing in are not doing anything to detour crime. Maybe he needs to worry more about doing his job and less with getting campaign and/or private money in his pocket. Fund after school programs, put more money into measures for neighborhood watch programs, DARE, MADD etc. But ultimately putting more money into deputies in problematic communities on a consistent basis—not just for a “sting”—will be the key to lowering crime.

These are common sense things. The head of the Sheriff’s office has been decomposing since 2009 and it’s working its way down in the form of loss of massive amounts of deputies. Some were bad apples but most were good guys who couldn’t lower themselves to the incompetence. One of the first moves is to get Haines off his ass and in the community.  He needs to know the people in the problem areas. His face should be out there with the men under him

Ultimately, the decay of society as Morgan claims is an anathema for all of us. Every state and county has the problems. Escambia is not unique. The people there aren’t bad as Morgan’s claiming. He’s outright saying YOU, THE RESIDING CITIZEN, ARE THE PROBLEM.  You didn’t raise your kids right. You didn’t do everything you could to make the community safe. That is a cop out. Society has changed, yes, but you know what? The safest county in Florida is doing something to counteract that by forward thinking law enforcement. Proactive policing, having a presence in each community. The deputies should be acquainting themselves to the people in their area. You should see them periodically through your neighborhood. You should know which deputy is in your area.

The residents can’t fix the crime; it’s on Sir David to provide a following of proactive deputies who know their jobs and do it. GET OUT OF THE CARS! Don’t wait for a crime to happen put someone in the “hot spots” patrolling. In turn that “hot spot” will move and you put people in the new location, eventually pushing outside this county. That is law enforcement. Not waiting for a robbery or murder and arresting people over and over.

To Sir David: Stop the crime before it happens. That’s what you get paid handsomely to do.  When you say it is not your problem, you are disrespecting every person breathing air in the county. You are pushing the problem onto the citizens rather than accepting the responsibility of your oath of office. Since you don’t seem to understand that, you need to get the f**k out of the seat.

The National Institute of Justice, under the Dept. of Justice says this:

Basic principles of CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) include target hardening (controlling access to neighborhoods and buildings and conducting surveillance on specific areas to reduce opportunities for crime to occur) and territorial reinforcement (increasing the sense of security in settings where people live and work through activities that encourage informal control of the environment). Most community policing models include the decentralization of police services, the collaboration of police departments with other city agencies (such as parks or utility departments) to resolve problems, and regular police-citizen dialog about perceived problems

Police can:

  • Conduct security surveys for residents and provide security improvements such as adequate lighting and locks.
  • Conduct park patrols and patrols of other public spaces to eliminate crime and drug use.
  • Use their substations to inform residents of high-risk locations in the neighborhood.
  • Work with urban planners and architects to review the designs and plans in order to enhance community security.
  • Prepare educational materials for building owners and managers to deal with problem tenants and enhance the livability and security of rental units. These materials are useful because they address not only the manner in which the physical environment is designed but also how the environment can be managed more effectively to enhance public safety.
  • Control traffic flow to reduce the use of streets by criminals and enhance neighborhood cohesion and resident interaction. Streets can be closed or traffic diverted to create residential enclaves that give residents greater control of their living environment.

The development of these initiatives affects various factors such as the level of communication and cooperation among police, city staff, and residents; the type, amount, and use of community education and orientation programs; and the methods by which crime prevention programs are described, measured, and evaluated. Currently, these factors apply more to law enforcement agencies because modifying a community policing model may require changes of significant magnitude.

While the Pensacola Opera may be entertaining, it does not meet the criteria of crime prevention programs or safe neighborhoods as outlined by statute to be funded by the Sheriff’s office. Nor does NAS. They have an awesome museum but it is not up to snuff for this funding.

Proper funding of deputies and community programs would aid in reducing crime statistics. The cronyism of paying your upper echelon of do-boys while claiming there is no money for raises to deputies is wrong. Buying a ticket to the society elite with law enforcement money that should be going into making the community safer is wrong. Until people see this, nothing will change.

GO TO THE NEXT ESCAMBIA COUNTY BOARD MEETING. THE COMMISSIONERS, PARTICULARLY LUMON MAY, SIGN OFF ON THESE RIDICULOUS, SELF-SERVING DONATIONS.

Since we cannot fix stupid in the Sheriff, let’s make his money people accountable. They allow him to do this with your money. Want to stop this frivolous spending? Go to the County Commissioners responsible for Morgan…that’s how you cut off his spending of Escambia dollars in return for campaign donations.  You have a voice ESCAMBIA!  Get your voice to the next meeting before it’s too late.

VM-Over 2016

I haven’t posted for a while because I’ve been reflecting on VMO 2016-365 reasons to vote out Morgan (McNesby). This is not what I want to be remembered for. Does Escambia County have a Morgan problem? Why, yes, it does. As a former resident and person who, now, questions calling Pensacola, “my hometown”, because of the state of affairs in the city, I should not be the one to save the soul of the city.  The people, who make Pensacola fabulous, need to raise some hell.

I am an educated, recognized blogger. My credentials consist of the Dean’s List throughout my Bachelor’s of Science program, working with criminologists, judges, authors and psychologists. I was privileged enough to be accepted into Vanderbilt University’s Master program that less than 100 people are currently in. I have letters of recommendations from people with alphabet soup behind their names and I have earned my stripes with colleagues who happen to be some of the most recognized in Pensacola. I bring legitimacy, education and sincerity to the table of everything I do. Yet Sir David would have you believed I could be reduced to a lone nut who has a grudge.  There is no part of that statement that is accurate.

Vanderbilt University - Vanderbilt - Best College - US News.clipular

13.1 % acceptance rating–that means over 86% of applicants are accepted. So much for your lone nut theory Sir David.

Also, please note, that I have no personal vendetta against Sir David, except for the trail of deaths and ruined lives he leaves in his wake. I said “leaves” because I am confident that Sir David will be run out on a rail or in jail by the first day of 2017. The people, upstanding and the outlaw element, have the same stories of what goes on in Pensacola. ALL THE STORIES ARE THE SAME, with respect to Sir David’s involvement. Favoritism, retaliatory behavior, abuse of power, manipulation of evidence, threats of all kinds, and failure to own up to his malfeasance as a leader. Each and every case that comes my way has these elements in it.

Why do cases come my way and how many are we talking about? Failure to address the problem through procedural or regimental avenues have been ignored, minimized or thrown out because of the layers of corruption in the law enforcement community in Florida. Where do you go when the police are the bad guys?  You come to people like me who will research and document things to bring some exposure to the case. There have been many overlapping cases. That being said, there is no exact number.  I deal with roughly 20 people who have been detrimentally harmed by Sir David’s gang of injustice.  That may not be a lot but even one is too much when you about how profoundly people have been affected by the rippling of misdeeds.  People have died who should not have died because of Sir David. Marriages lost. Kids turning away from parents under false allegations. Property has been lost. People have been debased that had no malice against Sir David. Lives have been lost, earthly and publicly. That’s why I do what I do. I would venture to say 1000+ people have been affected, personally, in some way from aforementioned favoritism, retaliatory behavior, abuse of power, manipulation of evidence, threats of all kinds, and failure to own up to his malfeasance as a leader.

imageThat is my problem with Sir David and thugs. Haines likes to justify and make excuses but there is no excuse for being a sociopathic person. That is what Morgan is.  The DSM IV (professional diagnostic standard; recognized universally) says sociopathy is described by just 3 of the following behaviors:

  1. Callous unconcern for the feelings of others.
  2. Gross and persistent attitude of irresponsibility and disregard for social norms, and obligations.
  3. Incapacity to maintain enduring relationships, though having no difficulty in establishing them..
  4. Very low tolerance to frustration, a low threshold for discharge of aggression, including violence.
  5. Incapacity to experience guilt or to profit from experience, particularly punishment.
  6. Markedly prone to blame others or to offer plausible rationalization for the behavior that has brought the person into conflict with society.

Suffices to say, the 1000+ people negatively affected by Sir David Morgan’s actus reus (law term for behavior and intent to engage in a crime) qualifies him for the label of sociopathy. For those who might be interested in tactics in dealing with a sociopath, SociopathWorld.com is a good reference.

I pose this question to the people of Escambia County: Should your Sheriff be a sociopath?

As for me, I will be focusing on the victims rather than Sir David and that is not to say that he is out of the crosshairs. He is the weakest link in the corrupt string of scum that are taking advantage of the community. And knowing the psychological profile of Sir David, he will try to save his own neck and roll over on Eddins and the money funding the corruption. You know the saying, “a chain is only as strong as its weakest link”? Well that link is corroding as we speak.

Also just FYI, Morgan has an agenda to get re-elected and step down to put Eric Haines as the Sheriff. He’s doing this because Haines COULD NOT get elected himself. Morgan is looking for higher political aspirations, possibly guaranteed by powers that be in Pensacola.  So know that if you vote Morgan, you will be getting Haines. He is a PCC graduate that has no effective law enforcement training, less leadership ability (if that is possible), and no charisma. He is the excuse guy who swoops in and tries to justify the most egregious of actions by the ECSO.

**I Rattled the Cage!**

Justice should be blind

Justice should be blind

Dear Sheriff Morgan,

I am flattered that little ole me got under your skin. I wish you luck in finding a charge to use to arrest me as I know you have been looking to do so. I am no cyberbully. I am merely a citizen disgusted by the stench of your slimy reign as “sheriff”. You make a mockery of the job and if that hurts your feelings, MAN UP.

If you do find a way to arrest me, know the second, you have me arrested EVERY single thing I ever said about you will be legitimized by your panic and trying to silence me. I will be the martyr who will be the proof that you are trying to play king in Escambia County. I welcome the outcome. I have Marie Mattox to go to and I am not afraid to use her on you.  She is wildly intrigued by your antics playing Sheriff.

FYI. Mr. Craig’s “drone” is coming down.

Also, I would not count on the show “See No Evil” with your pearly whites on the commercial airing anytime soon. I have emailed the producers sworn statements by your deputies about the mishandling of this case. You want to see? Here are some excerpts of your incompetency:

tama

Corey Aittama

It’s funny how quickly you released all the surveillance video for the Billings Murder without regard to the people who would be most affected by the fallout, yet your little perverts who impregnanted one of 2 twin teenage girls are off limits? Yes, I know that is why this is what broke the story. One of your deputies, in the line of duty, impregnated a 17 year old girl. Proud aren’t ya Sheriff Morgan?

Telling the truth is not slander or cyberbullying. Have a good weekend. I know I will.

Mrs. Staley

(you have not earned the right to call me by first name either.)
