You Have Got to be Joking?

There were 2 articles in the news today that caught my attention. The first was :

Governor Rick Scott calls for FBI Director Christopher Wray to resign

Highlights from this article:

“The FBI’s failure to take action against this killer is unacceptable,” Scott, a Republican loyal to Donald Trump, said in a statement. “The FBI has admitted that they were contacted last month by a person who called to inform them of Cruz’s ‘desire to kill people,’ and ‘the potential of him conducting a school shooting.’ 

 “Seventeen innocent people are dead and acknowledging a mistake isn’t going to cut it. An apology will never bring these 17 Floridians back to life or comfort the families who are in pain. The families will spend a lifetime wondering how this could happen, and an apology will never give them the answers they desperately need.  

“We constantly promote ‘see something, say something,’ and a courageous person did just that to the FBI. And the FBI failed to act. ‘See something, say something’ is an incredibly important tool and people must have confidence in the follow through from law enforcement. The FBI Director needs to resign.”

The second was an opinion piece in today’s Mullet Wrapper:

Editorial: Are local leaders driven by ethics and intentionality?

This is the beginning of the article:

Speaking in Pensacola last week, former Pittsburgh Mayor Tom Murphy offered a specific recipe for civic reform that delivered cultural and economic rebirth to his city. According to Murphy, there were two prerequisites for Pittsburgh’s rise from a dying steel town to a center of economic and cultural growth — “ethics” and “intentionality.”

Murphy made it clear that ethics and transparency were mandatory starting points in the many deals that were made on behalf of the public sector. Without that ethical foundation, any potential plans or partnerships were poisoned from the start. 

As we look to creating a stronger city in which to live, invest, grow and prosper, we must ask that hard question of our own public leadership in Pensacola, Escambia and Santa Rosa County: Do you believe we have either? 

Where to start?

Let’s just use Rick Scott’s reasoning. He says:

The FBI’s failure to take action against this killer is unacceptable……We constantly promote ‘see something, say something,’ and a courageous person did just that to the FBI. And the FBI failed to act. ‘See something, say something’ is an incredibly important tool and people must have confidence in the follow through from law enforcement. The FBI Director needs to resign.”

On June 2, 2017, Kevin Robinson of the PNJ wrote: “The sheriff confirmed that Naomi’s mother had been arrested on an outstanding warrant after she called in about her missing daughter.”  What isn’t said is that the mother was arrested in lieu of the sheriff actually starting the search for Naomi for another 24 hours. In that time, Naomi was murdered before the ECSO ever started the search.

Based on lack of action taken after law enforcement had the ability to prevent a child dying and didn’t, Morgan should be asked to resign. The parallel fits and Naomi’s mom knows this.

But before this inaction that endangered a child in the community, let’s go back to another case right before this. On Feb. 3, 2017, Billy Boyette killed Peggy Broz in Lillian, Alabama.  Mrs.  Broz’s car was found along Nine Mile Road in Lillian, AL.  Kayla Crocker was killed on Feb. 5th, after traffic cameras caught Boyette and Rice coming out of the woods, DIRECTLY ADJACENT to where Mr. Broz’s car was found.  Search and Rescue people deployed to look for Boyette called me to tell me they were upset because they urged Sheriff Morgan to bring in bloodhounds offered by local K9 agencies to thoroughly comb those woods, but Morgan declined the offer, saying the interstate being right there, it would be a waste of time. He felt sure Boyette fled the area. This bit of discernment by the Honorable Sheriff ended up costing Kayla Crocker her life the following day.

These are only 2 instances just in the first 6 months of 2017 that are documented, where was Rick Scott and why didn’t he ask for this man’s resignation?


The second article offered up the question: “And do you believe that our local elected officials surround themselves with the sort of talent that Murphy hired — smart, experienced, ethics-driven people who are capable of brokering good and fair deals on behalf of taxpayers?”

I think Ashton Hayward and David Morgan have both shown their egos and self-interest are their priorities. In December, Hayward fell under fire for appearing in an AirBnB commercial leaving his opponents to point out that AirBnB has been lobbying to prevent regulations on rental properties. This is conflicting an earlier statement Hayward made on camera saying mayors should be in charge of regulating rental properties in their area which is contrary to plight of AirBnB.  Intention and ethics are absent in this decision by the fine Mayor.

Morgan’s recent blitzkrieg on the county commission. Using taxpayer money to buy billboards, commercials, and air time for his videos, Morgan opened fired regarding the county budget, particularly giving deputies raises. Everywhere you turned even in movie theaters was Morgan’s face calling citizens to contact their commissioner to tell them to support his agenda.  While this is intentional, ethical it is not and it is more self serving than in the best interest of the taxpayers. Morgan has forced good cops out creating a vacuum in the department.  Morgan’s solution was to promote more people to admin positions and bloat the budget, causing more deputies to leave He then created internal policies to counter any measure made by the commission. The BOCC offered him a lesser amount to be earmarked for deputies, but within the agency, Morgan has implemented caps on certain officers, thereby denying them the money that the BOCC allotted for them.  Intentional, yes. Ethical, no.

So to recap.

Rick Scott called for the resignation of the FBI director for failure to act which allowed for a tragic loss of life.  If that is the standard, Scott should ask for Morgan’s resignation. His failure to be a cop cost at least 2 citizens their lives, one being a child, the other being a mother.

Is Escambia County built on a foundation of ethics and intentionality? Hell is it even trying to act with intentionality in accordance to ethical standards?  What do you think?





The REAL Story of the Naomi Investigation & Gaslighting of Suspect

May 31, 2017

2:30 PM—   Naomi is missing

8:35 PM—   Naomi’s mother arrested on outstanding, non-violent, non-drug related       warrant; called Klaas Kids to initiate investigation into daughter’s abduction; Klaas Kids contacted the FBI and FDLE to assist in investigation.

 June 1, 2017

4:26 AM—   Naomi’s mother released. SmartWEB Jail.clipular

8:00 AM—   Investigator assigned to case by ECSO

Naomi was killed with in 36 hours of abduction.  By the time ECSO, began investigation, Naomi has 18 hours or less to live. ECSO wasted 18 hours before starting investigation while simultaneously severing trust with family by arresting mom when she tried to report her daughter missing.

While coming in as the last agency to be involved, Sheriff Morgan held press conferences regularly, creating a facade that the ECSO was working diligently. FDLE was the primary investigating agency, due to the bumbling of ECSO from the beginning.

In my humble opinion, Morgan has blood on his hands

Let the propaganda begin:

On the evening of June 10, on Facebook, I found a post that was quite curious. Robert Howard had been arrested on June 8th for Naomi’s murder. It had been all over the news. Personally, I was hesitant about this man’s guilt due to confidential info I received on the state of Naomi’s body. She was not just strangled. She was mutilated. This guy did not fit the profile. Nevertheless, on Facebook, a friend of a friend posted this with a comment about Howard confessing.


 I found a copy of the arrest report online that I had seen.redacted arrest howard

In communicating with the person who released the unredacted arrest report, I was told that this came from an employee at ECSO.

My question is why release that to mislead people. According to source on inside of ECSO, there was no real confession.  It was an off the cuff comment that is misrepresented in this version of the arrest report.  Had it been a real confession, Sir David would be up there taking credit for the “slam dunk”.  “The SOB confessed” might be the headline of the PNJ (AKA the Mullet Wrapper).  The term gaslighting seems  to fit.

Gaslighting is a form of manipulation that seeks to sow seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or members of a group, hoping to make targets question their own memory, perception, and sanity. Using persistent denial, misdirection, contradiction, and lying, it attempts to destabilize the target and delegitimize the target’s belief. 





Sheriff Morgan: ECSO Dropped the Ball in Crucial Hours of Naomi Jones Search

According to WALA and other news outlets, Naomi was likely killed 24-36 hours after her abduction, which would be June 1 into June 2.  As previously stated, the ECSO found it more important to haul Naomi’s mother to jail for non-violent, non-drug charges than it was to start the appropriate investigation into the girl’s disappearance.

“Very early on in this case, after not that many hours, it was determined that we were not making the progress we thought we should for that initial checklist. Not to state the obvious but at this point, it was time to call in the cavalry.”- Sheriff David Morgan, June 5, 2017

So from the horse’s mouth, this could be a death that should not have happened to one of the children of Escambia County. The crucial and now known, only time to rescue Naomi was squandered.  Is this ok with everybody???

Sources inside the ECSO confided that Naomi had been sexually active; however they were not sure if it was forcibly. The theory originally was that someone close to the girl had killed her in a sexual encounter. It has since been released that the people in close proximity to the girl originally suspected of the crime have been cleared.

In a classic Morgan moment another clever statement to the press  after the little girl was found:

“I don’t care why, you killed one of my citizens, that’s all I care about. I will leave the why to the psychologists and the scriptwriters.”

NOW, that the feds have deemed it necessary to know WHY someone would kill this little girl,  maybe some headway can be made.

It is my sincere hope that this does not lead to the undercurrent of sex trafficking that has exists in Pensacola and surrounding areas. Despite having names, faces, DNA and exact addresses of the people who coordinated Shauna Newell’s kidnapping, and selling into this web, ECSO made NO ARRESTS.

Authorities in Florida labeled Shauna Newell a runaway. She was found before she could be sold by efforts of her mother, Lisa Brant, and siblings who canvassed the street of Pensacola until they found her, with no help from the authorities.

This is an excerpt from a human trafficking article out of Las Vegas that has similar circumstances as Shauna’s.  When Sheriff Morgan met with Shauna in 2009 after he came into office, Shauna ENTRUSTED him with her clothes from the incidence. They had not been collected at the time of the crime and were sealed in a bag ever since she left Sacred Heart the night she was recovered.  Morgan told Shauna that he wanted to get these bastards and get some justice for her. The young lady trusted that the top law enforcement official was being genuine in his offer to help. However, Morgan was seen taking said bag and putting it in the trunk of his cruiser. The clothes were never processed and Morgan claims that Shauna never gave him her clothes. UNCONSCIONABLE!

Danielle Bell

Despite vanishing after a party in 2001, the fact she was stalked by one man and possibly pregnant my another man (not boy), Danielle Bell is still listed as a runaway.  Danielle was 17 in 2001. The man she was seeing and possibly the father of her unborn child, was convicted of lewd and lascivious behavior for his sexual contact with Danielle. The family told news outlets that the ECSO lost interest a long time ago. Today, no one is looking for Danielle.


But there are others in the Milton-Pensacola area that didn’t get the command performance by Sir David & his minion Chip.

Naomi Jones: Can She Still Be Found?

Naomi Jones went missing on May 31, 2017 from her Johnson Avenue home in Pensacola. That same day Escambia County Sheriff’s Office arrested Naomi’s mother, Shantara Hurry for an outstanding, non-violent warrant. This arrest very well could have impeded the efforts by taking the most important person, Naomi’s mother, out of the search. As well as the broken trust regarding law enforcement that must have arose out of the arrest for this family.  Ms. Hurry reached out to Klaas Kids from jail. Brad Dennis of Klaas Kids amped up the search for Naomi including reaching out to the FBI & FDLE.  An inside source from the ECSO says that it was only then that Sheriff Morgan began “A REAL” missing person investigation–roughly 24-48 hours after the original report. This time is considered to be the most crucial time to gather evidence in any missing person investigation, especially involving a child. SmartWEB Jail.clipular

This is not the only child that the ECSO has been less than driven to find in recent years. Seventeen year old, Danielle Bell, disappeared in 2007. There was recently a reinvigorated effort to try to close this cold case by independent investigators and news affiliates. These sources also disclose that the ECSO has been less helpful than expected in trying to find out what happened to Bell.

Why is the ECSO less concerned about at-risk or missing children in Escambia County?
