Covid Distraction

While everyone has been focusing on the COVID chaos, criminals march on in their pursuits.  Namely Sir David Morgan. Over the last few months, Sir David has been putting the word out that he wants to be the Mayor of Pensacola. I know how absurd it sounds to the lay person. I, for one, chuckled until I verified that it was true.

And as a lame duck sheriff, Morgan has donated to his pet LET organizations in a huge way.

2020-368-LET 2019-present_Page_12020-368-LET 2019-present_Page_2

And he even flaunts his refusal to follow statute. He requests for the BOCC to REIMBURSE him for funds he spent before he got approval. And since none of these organizations are being forced to show they spent the money properly, like every other state and federal agency requires, they may as well all be payment for support of Morgan’s mayoral run.

It’s funny because UWF was whining about being asked to repay money after the Auditor General found they didn’t spend the money correctly.  In another article, from the PNJ, it is reported:

“The Florida Auditor General’s office conducted its own review of the program’s finances and ultimately found the university had “no apparent legal authority” to withdraw the extra funds and recommended the university be required to return $2.4 million to the Complete Florida Plus Program. “

That is what is supposed to happen. Pam Childers as the Comptroller of the County is supposed to make sure all monies are spent appropriately, but as we’ve seen, Ms. Childers either doesn’t take her job seriously or she doesn’t care about the law. She’s become the unwitting or maybe willing co-conspirator in Morgan’s financial misappropriation. Who’s to enforce that law? Certainly not Eddins.

Now here’s the millionaire’s financial disclosure for 2019.

This IS CORRUPTION

For years, when people told me about the crap that happened in Escambia County on a daily basis, they would say it was “back room deals”, “favors for friends”, “a show of good will”, but all those things are just sugar coating for what really was happening—CORRUPTION.

One definition of corruption is:

 An act done with an intent to give some advantage inconsistent with official dutythe rights of others.

Another is:

  1. Dishonest or illegal behaviors, especially by people in positions of power or authority.
  2. Impairment of moral principal, virtue, or values.

It always surprised me the reluctance to call corruption by name. It really doesn’t matter what label you put on it, the act is what it is.  One of the worst forms of corruption is not the quid pro quo; it is the lack of accountability for those who abuse the system. That  holds potential liability for everyone. Knowing of a wrong, failing to act, is abetting and aiding in the commission of a crime. This means the people “in the know”, who fail to act become just as legally culpable as the person committing the misdeed. This is the foundation of RICO. This is systemic or organized criminal endeavors that others allow to continue.

A good example of someone who should be charged with public corruption is a high level law enforcement officer, who has been given information about a crime within his agency, a federal crime of interstate fraud and identity theft by a naturalized citizen. This person married, bought property in various states under a relatives social security number. She obtained employment and ultimately became a citizen but because of the crimes she committed, her citizenship is not valid. The citizenship oath taken outlines the fact citizenship can and will be revoked if any illegal acts were committed prior to naturalization. So when this law enforcement honcho finds out there is more than smoke in this case and fails to dig any deeper to prevent finding the mess behind the green card, he is guilty of abuse of power. Legally speaking, because of his oath, he is obliged to act if he suspects a crime to have occurred even if this is his favorite employee. That is his duty.  Yet this person WILL fail to act. This is CORRUPTION.

Now we all know the master of the game of corruption, Sheriff Morgan, is most adept at manipulating money. He should be since it is said he first started in the military, hence his refusal to produce his military record or obtain security clearance to work with the feds. Giving him the ability to buy political power or capital via the LET money, he keeps manipulating the process. No one seems to care–least of all Pam Childers. She doesn’t know how the process works, nor does she know the true meaning of the law. Ms. Childers informed me the Sheriff did not have to follow the statute regarding LET  funds because Eddins said they came to an agreement. Can’t make this shit up…..

Gmail - Public Records Request pam childers_Page_2

I will get back to the LET Fund later and  yes, there are more sketchy payments, despite the BOCC supposedly overseeing spending.

What I want to discuss now is the $30K computer/software purchased by ECSO for Eric Haines to have in computer crimes. This should scare the hell out of everyone Haines has in his crosshairs. This set up is for the purpose of pursuing pedophiles and he is being trained to “white hat” hack.  While the computer crimes department is made up of Haines and one other person, isn’t it possible that he can create a backdoor to this new toy he has? We all know that he has targeted people in the past and now with these resources and permission to troll, what could possibly go wrong?

But according to an inside source,  Morgan agreed to this as a promised perk when Haines “self-demoted”.  So now Haines, officially, can spend 8 hours a day, on the county’s dime, to terrorize law abiding citizens he doesn’t see eye to eye with.  Citizens beware!!!!!!!!!!!

Vinson’s Dismissal of the Rogers’ Cases

Judge Roger Vinson dismissed the lawsuits against Sir David last month. Morgan made short order in getting his version out in spite of the Corona Virus Craziness. I’m sure he’d hoped my response to this would be seen poorly, as an attack on the “first responders”.  I did wait to reply as I see this whole thing will decline quickly, restoring Morgan’s image as a the coward he is rather than the false facade of heroic first responder.

Vinson claimed the one claim by Zarzaur that made these federal cases was the “deliberate indifference” of children in the home with the foresight to see that sexual abuse of the girls could be predicted.  He found no evidence to be presented that definitively showed Morgan was aware of the existence of the Rogers twins and thereby couldn’t be indifferent. The following passage says it all:

6

So the other things mentioned….he doesn’t run a tight ship regarding sex on duty and that he interfered with Internal Investigations of such misconduct, are now facts of law.

This includes the the following: 34

I have attached the full opinion here and I believe sexual deviance could be predicted. We know sexual predators don’t stop or go backwards. Sexual deviance progresses much the same way. The thrill is in the taboo of the situation. Once the taboo loses its excitement, something more “taboo” and exciting will be sought. Given that there were adolescents in the home that sexual escalation was absolutely forseeable.

But the biggest “gotcha” is that Morgan despite many many times claiming he didn’t “have sex with that woman”, did not convince a judge .i could not would not

Commentary:  I believe Bill Chavers is collateral damage here of a vindictive Mindy Pare.

 

Zarzaur’s Latest Filing

This was filed on November 18th, 2019; it is PLAINTIFF’S RULE 37(c) MOTION FOR SANCTIONS FOR MATERIAL DISCOVERY VIOLATIONS AND/OR MOTION FOR LEAVE TO PERMIT LIMITED DISCOVERY ON RECENTLY UNCOVERED MATERIAL EVIDENCE. After Zarzaur received the texts from the PBA and well…here ya go.

The most important pages are below. For the whole document, click here.  The exhibits are here.

Morgan and Haines are caught in lies under oath yet. Bill Eddins says their lying.

4930389297332224

As for the exhibits, this is the most exculpatory is his list of sex cases of officers listed by Morgan, is less than truthful.

Pages from 108-44.jpg

Morgan’s response as flimsy as it is can be found here.

Officer Zaid is missing. Officer Custer is also missing. The CFO, Henrique Dias who allegedly got caught in another jurisdiction with a transvestite prostitute.  Another set of employees were caught having sex on duty in the garage parking lot. Oh and how about the civilian who was caught exposing himself at the Creighton Rd. Walmart. Employees of a news outlet attest to being on site after hearing the incident on a police scanner. Somehow it is alleged that Morgan talked to the PPD and got that incident erased. Unfortunately, there were a few witnesses who have nothing to gain by telling this tale. Even if the CFO and the civilian incidents can’t be documented, thanks to Morgan and Haines having evidence destroyed, the others are disturbingly absent from the list. Why?

They are others that are alleged but also cannot be proven due to the lack of documentation generated on the incidence. In the texts, Haines talks about not wanting Tyree to “create a public record” with the PBA letter. That is a theme I have heard about too many times.  In speaking of the texts, I am mentioned a number of times within them.

I love to see how much I’m in their heads, particularly Debra Little. She seems to have a contempt for me that is stronger than I would have guessed. Oh well.  I will let the documents speak for themselves. I don’t believe it is too difficult to glean the intent of Morgan and Haines in these documents.

 

More Morgan Drama

So the Rogers vs. Morgan lawsuit has heated up. This is a new twist. Mindy Pare claimed her letters to and from Leah Manning were not relevant to this lawsuit only to be proven wrong after an inspection of the letters on camera.

The excerpt says:

“I hope to make Morgan eat his words from the press conference (in 2015). He deliberately gave false information about the pictures and the computers, just to make a bigger better case. Fuck him and his election year! ANYWAYS! I feel he did it so it would make us look our daughters predators and it would get picked up by more news affiliates instead of just teens accusing of wrongdoings! And then he got to throw my sex life in and make the juicy twist. What goes around comes around and he has quite alot going around in his life. I wonder if he (illegible) his cell # when it showed up in my phone? LOL! Enough about that for now. It’s like a tv show. …to be continued!”

 

2 Sheriffs, One Sex Scandal

img_0673

On February 23rd, 2017, Chief Deputy Eric Haines started an internal affairs investigation into deputy Heath Jackson and with allegations of Jackson giving information to Leah & Doug Manning when they were on the run in 2015.  The IA investigation was thrown together and completed very quickly. It consisted of testimony of Doug Manning, Leah Manning, Heath Jackson and phone records. There was no true investigation as pieces of the criminal investigation and other internal affairs investigations were cropped together, to give the facade of an actual investigation being conducted. Naturally, the IA found the claims unsubstantiated. This was a political favor because Heath Jackson had political ambitions. He wanted to run for Sheriff in Escambia County, Alabama. In 2019, Jackson was sworn in after winning that election.

The sham of an internal affairs investigation doesn’t pass the legitimacy test. The key is in looking at the timeline of events.Pages from Chief Deputy Eric Haines - 30(b)(6) Deposition Exhibit Number 8 (1)_Page_1Pages from Chief Deputy Eric Haines - 30(b)(6) Deposition Exhibit Number 8 (1)_Page_2Pages from Chief Deputy Eric Haines - 30(b)(6) Deposition Exhibit Number 8 (1)_Page_3Pages from Chief Deputy Eric Haines - 30(b)(6) Deposition Exhibit Number 8 (1)_Page_4Pages from Chief Deputy Eric Haines - 30(b)(6) Deposition Exhibit Number 8 (1)_Page_5Pages from Chief Deputy Eric Haines - 30(b)(6) Deposition Exhibit Number 8 (1)_Page_6Pages from Chief Deputy Eric Haines - 30(b)(6) Deposition Exhibit Number 8 (1)_Page_7

The entirety of the IA file can be seen here.

This is an investigation that began on February 23, 2017, with Heath Jackson contacting Eric Haines. The first interview of this IA is Doug Manning from January 2016. Why was no IA started then? Then, an IA interview with Doug on February 10th, 2017 (before the IA began).  How is that possible?  Answer: IT ISN’T.

Pattern of Evidence Mishandling

Steve Cappas has become the poster boy of what a good investigator doesn’t look like. What is really disturbing is that Cappas is an average Joe in this agency. He is among others just like him.  He is the guy that takes orders well and doesn’t, for a second, question authority.  A dutiful soldier. But in that case, is that what is needed?  Is it ok for someone to break the law if a commanding officer directs them to do so? No it isn’t but most try to assert the Nuremberg Defense,  I was just following orders. I’m sure Cappas will be using that himself. The fact remains, law enforcement officers are supposed to follow laws, procedures & protocol for EVERYONE’S protection, not just their own. Cappas’s deviation from procedure and policy exposes, not only himself, to liability but the agency as well. Not to mention the fact that failing to properly handle/store evidence could affect a person’s liberty and freedom can be taken. That is the most crucial part.

In this case, two deputies rolled the dice on this evidence that was not properly handled and stored; one was able to get away with molesting a child because of it and one was found guilty, in the absence of evidence. That is paradox within itself. But both of their trials will be moot due to the mishandling of evidence. The “what-if’s” will propel criminal and civil cases alike back in front of a judge and jury.  As they should, in this case. Morgan’s crew did whatever they wanted. Procedure is overrated to them. Due process protection is not important to them. The law is of no consequence.

Steve Cappas was worried about me making his sworn testimony free for people to see and to shine a light on randomly applied laws and selective enforcement of policies. His words, though true, are going to be the catalyst for next phase of the ECSO. The paradigm has shifted. Evidence has been lackadaisically handled and destroyed in many cases. Records, in particular, are the biggest casualties of this regime. For example, public records have been destroyed in regards to one unsworn employee specifically. This employee became a citizen in 2011. The problem is this person has been in the US for more than 20+ years illegally. With false papers, this employee went to school, has bought property, married and worked. Because of that, the citizenship granted in 2011 is void, because this person is guilty of fraud, identity theft, larceny by trick. These felonious acts will invalidate citizenship. When this came to Morgan’s attention, he had it investigated and that indeed was the case. What did he do next? Nothing. He didn’t want anything negative to happen to the employee, so he let this criminal slide. That is a violation of his oath and Florida law, as he is aiding this person. Then Morgan wanted the records destroyed.  To date, this person is a well insulated employee at the ECSO. Your tax dollars at work.

Getting back to the evidence. The procedure’s violated by both these case is excerpted in the passage below.

 

High value items/narcotics: Submitting officers/crime scene technicians must separate items including, but not limited to, narcotics, firearms, jewelry, and currency so that it will be submitted separately from all other evidence items and where possible, will be identified with individual defendants or owners.  All high value items will be submitted with NO unnecessary delay.  [CFA 36.01 E]

527.5

Release and Disposal of Property/ Evidence [CFA 36.01 G]

Property or evidence may be released from the Evidence Unit with the authorization of certain individuals under certain conditions.  The Evidence Unit is responsible for ensuring that prior to the release, disposal or destruction of property that such property can be legally possessed by the person to whom it is to be released, and that there are no pending court orders prevent the release, disposal or destruction of the property.

Persons who may authorize the release of property:

  • Submitting officer;
  • An investigator assigned to the case;
  • Officers authorized by the investigator assigned to the case;
  • Supervisor of the submitting officer or Investigator assigned the case;
  • In cases where the submitting officer and/or investigator is no longer employed with the Sheriff’s Office:
  • Operations Division OIC;
  • Investigation Division OIC/AOIC;
  • Investigations Section OIC/AOIC;
  • Forensic Services Section Supervisor;
  • Evidence Unit Supervisor;
  • Chief Deputy; and
  • Sheriff.

 

In cases where the submitting officer and/or investigator was from another agency and is no longer employed with said agency, release may be authorized by the: [CFA 36.01 G]

  • A command level supervisor for the submitting agency (in writing);
  • Forensic Services Supervisor;
  • Evidence Unit Supervisor;
  • Investigation Section OIC/AOIC;
  • Investigations Division OIC/AOIC;
  • Chief Deputy; and
  • Sheriff

 

Property or evidence may be released for the following reasons:

  • Return to the owner;
  • Return to the agent: As in the situation where the victim has been reimbursed by an insurance company and the proper documentation has been filed with the Criminal Records Section by the insurance carrier;
  • Evidence processing, laboratory examination, and/or other investigative purpose;
  • Court presentation, evidence review related to discovery or case preparation, or in compliance with other court order;
  • Disposal of unclaimed evidence, lost or abandoned property; or,
  • Disposal or destruction of contraband property.
  • Disposal through a settlement or Final Order pursuant to Florida’s Contraband Forfeiture Act.

All transfers in the chain of custody will be recorded on ALL evidence cards to include, but not limited to, the following:

  • a) Date and time of transfer; [CFA 35.02 A]
  • b) Receiving person’s name and authority; and [CFA 35.02 B]
  • c) Reason for transfer. [CFA 35.02 C]

 

Each evidence transfer, whether by evidence card, transfer form or other means, will be documented with the following:

  •          Date/time & method of transfer; [CFA 35.02 A]
  •          Receiving person’s name/responsibility; [CFA 35.02 B]
  •          Reason of transfer; [CFA 35.02 C]
  •          Name/location/lab and synopsis of events; [CFA 35.02 D]
  •          Date/time received in lab; and [CFA 35.02 E]
  •          Name/signature of person in lab receiving the evidence. [CFA 35.02 F]

 

If any of these things had happened, we would not be talking about either case now. But we are and some criminals go unpunished . How do I know that evidence has been destroyed? The employee mentioned above is still in this country and still employed by Morgan. If the evidence of this employee’s citizenship were properly handled, this would be an empty seat in his office.  However, the employee is there and that is proof that documented crimes and evidence has been destroyed.

Manning Case: ECSO Employees Contend Evidence Mishandled/Possible Tampering/Destruction

Lieutenant Steve Cappas & Deputy Zach Ward were deposed in the Rogers vs. Morgan civil case. Under oath, both ECSO employees contend evidence was not properly stored in a secured location and reports were missing from case file.

Zach Ward, the first of the two to be deposed, says that chain of evidence was in tact up until the reports he created on the composition of Leah Manning’s devices in this sexual abuse case. In review of the case file, it becomes obvious the reports Ward claim to have run on the evidence he received in 2015 were not in the case file but a second examination of the phone of Leah Manning had been inexplicably run over a year later and was in the file where his report should have been.

In Lt. Cappas’s deposition, this is what he says about storage of evidence

When asked where Leah Manning’s IPad is, Cappas replied

Cappas was asked about the fact Morgan’s number was in Leah’s phone and the veracity of the statements made by Morgan in his press conference

When Cappas was asked about my blog publishing that Leah had the Morgan’s number

****Breaking News****

” This case against defendant SHERIFF DAVID MORGAN “Sheriff
Morgan” as representative of Escambia County Sheriff’s Office involves
allegations that the Sheriff’s office was deliberately indifferent to the sexual activity between 20 to 30 ECSO deputies and Leah Manning. The allegations include arguments that the Sheriff’s Office Internal Affairs Division purposely ignored a sex ring that was occurring between deputies and Leah Manning, many of whom were visiting the Manning house during work hours.”

“This deliberate indifference to its own policies allowed for more and more sexual activity with Leah Manning, most of which occurred in the family home while the minors were present. Testimony has established that the internal affairs investigation into the two deputies that were charged with sexual abuse of the Plaintiffs was curtailed by ECSO administration because they felt it would be a “public relations” nightmare.”


“Despite the fact that ECSO had Leah Manning’s cell records which indicated graphic/sexual text between her and various ECSO deputies, IA investigators were instructed that looking into these other acts would be “running down a rabbit trail,” and they were instructed to focus on the narrow the scope of their investigation and ignore the potential sheriff office policy violations since behavior between “consenting adults” was not material to them.”

You MUST be Joking….

After finally getting back around to look at Leah Manning’s daughters’ case, I was floored to see a motion for protection by Sir David Morgan. In reading the motion, Morgan claims that he, the Sheriff, should not be deposed in this lawsuit, because of his position as the Sheriff. The truth is wants this sealed and to not be subjected to the inevitable questions in a deposition that is public.

But why should he be afforded that opportunity? He will use this lawsuit to eviscerate these young girls and the horrific things they were exposed to by their mother and step dad. In documents that will be public records, he will attack them as promiscuous and delusional, as he already has to people who will listen. There is no doubt he had a relationship of some kind with the girls because he gave them a puppy they named Morgan after him. Does that sound like something he has ever done for people he doesn’t know? Much like the self-serving hug he gave Ashley Markham that he has framed on his wall….that is not the relationship he has had with ANY other stranger in his tenure, leading to the obvious assumption there is a personal relationship prior to that moment.

Here is the protective order he filed that I hope will get denied by Judge Vinson.

What do you think?

Update on ECSO

Well, folks, it appears all the blocked/banned people can post on the ECSO FB page. No communication just quietly unblocked/unbanned. Score one for the good guys!

Also, I came across something today. It is something I already knew but it may be news to you. There is a packet of info circulating to the various news outlets. It’s referring to the upcoming Laura Montoya’s upcoming civil trial against Sheriff David Morgan, Chief Deputy Eric Haines, Fred Alford, and Ricky Shelby. Here is the cover page of the packet.
