Do You Really Know Your Sheriff? Part 3

A few months ago, I wrote 7 reasons to vote David Morgan out of office:

#1 Conspiracy to cover up human trafficking

#2- Sheriff David Morgan is a FRAUD!

#3 Morgan has made Escambia County & Pensacola Look Like Reality TV

#4: Allows Deputies to be Thugs

 #5-Sheriff Morgan’s Money Handling Skills Need Attention

 #6-Sheriff Morgan is All About Double-Talk

#7 Morgan Lives in a Glass House

And the last few days, I have added to the list.

Do You Really Know Your Sheriff? PART 1

Do You Really Know Your Sheriff? Part 2

Today I want to look at this current administration in a different way. This post is inspired by the Parable of Tares from the book of Matthew.

24 Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.27 “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’28 “‘An enemy did this,’ he replied.“The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’

29 “‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’”

36 Then he left the crowd and went into the house. His disciples came to him and said, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.”37 He answered, “The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man.38 The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the people of the kingdom. The weeds are the people of the evil one, 39 and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.40 “As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. 41 The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil.42 They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let them hear.

I am not going to get into a sermon, but tare has been planted with wheat in Escambia County. It has grown to fruition and now it’s time to harvest. The tare has been pretending to be wheat. It’s an impostor, but he who has eyes to see, can see the difference.  There are good officers among the tare. Escambia County grows good seed. The integrity of the seed is not in question. Morgan would have you believe otherwise. He is trying to make you think tare is wheat and wheat is tare.

Judge those by the fruit they produce, not by their words. High crime, high attrition, & money mismanagement are the fruits of this administration.parable-of-the-tares

That is the legacy Morgan has today. You must judge…..wheat or tare?

#3 Morgan has made Escambia County & Pensacola Look Like Reality TV

Any of those closely associated with Sir David or has been in proximity to him when a live camera was within earshot can vouch for his, “kid in a candy store” persona that makes him the butt of national journalists and late night television. He is a legend in his own mind.

If in doubt look at the following photo op’s that Sir David has been so proud of:

       

These are just a few of his portfolio.

              

Even though he is the probably the most photogenic sheriff Escambia County has ever had, he most certainly is the dimmest as well. Here are just a few remarks Morganisms that make Escambia County so proud:Morganisms

First off, late me take issue with the title ‘African American’. We’re Americans. I am fourth generation Welsh. I or my family do not pretend to be nor do we say we are Welsh Americans. We are Americans. I was not born in Wales and the blacks that currently reside in the United States of America are not from Africa. Those sorts of terms that society has come to use are divisive in nature. So what are the issues in the minority community in Escambia County? Many are real, and many are perceived, and I will tell you that I think most of them are perceived and here’s why. And again, let’s go back to the history of our nation and where we currently are today. Not too many years ago, the thought of electing an African American president would have been unthinkable in the United States of America and I would remind black Americans that you are a little less than 13 percent of the entire population of the United States. Less than 13 percent–and now that’s every man, woman and child in the United States of America of black ancestry. Had every one of those people been voter eligible only 13 percent could have voted for President Obama, but President Obama has won two elections as President of the United States. Now what does that mean? That means a whole host of white people, and Hispanic people and Asian people and American Indians cast a vote for President Obama. The statistics are that we’re such a racist nation, why do we currently have an African American president? Why was General Chappie James the first four-star black general and why was General Colin Powell promoted to Chief of Staff and later to Secretary of State? Why do we currently have an Attorney General, Eric Holder, who is also a black American? So I would tell you statistically to anyone who makes an argument that the United States is a racist nation is focusing on specific incidences of where we might have had problems with race relations, but it certainly does not paint any organization or any individual any nation is racist. We have unfortunately, in the black community, embraced a “thug culture. One that agrandises foul language, shooting cops, abusing women….”

“I say this with great sadness, three months ago within a month period, I fired two officers for falsifying police reports. They falsified accident reports. When the information came in, my approach–when I took office, I told folks, I have one cardinal sin and that’s when you lie. When you lie, you’re done in law enforcement. What you’ve done, you’ve indicated to me that you have a proclivity of not telling the truth, what you call perjury in criminal justice system. If we can’t trust you, when society can’t trust you to tell the truth about the facts of the case as you see them, then you are of no use to law enforcement because our society and our criminal justice system is based on the truth. If we’re all about lying in business or government, then what kind of society is that? “

“those of you in the white community must overcome your fear of being labeled a racist. Because that’s what we all fear in trying to open a dialogue with minority communities. It’s when we enter that first juncture of the disagreement we will be called a racist. Anybody want that label?”

“you couldn’t just waltz into a second-hand shop with military memoriabilia and buy a medal of honor and put it around your neck. Why? Because you didn’t earn a medal of honor. That shows such dishonor and disrespect to the men and women who earned that honor through, most of the time, sacrificing their lives. They’ve passed (legislators) it and it’s called the Stolen Valor Law. “


“I believe there must be term limits. IF I GO STUPID AND RUN FOR A THIRD TERM, DON’T VOTE FOR ME. (laughter in crowd). I’m serious. I need to go back out into the real world and learn how to use a checkbook.” 8/4/2011- Pensacola BizNet-Cordova Lanes

Speaking of books about Winston Churchill…”… The frightening thing about these volumes is this: If you switch the word “Nazi” to “Muslim”, you’ll have an intersting eye opener with history and with the way the world is progressing today.”

“those of you in the white community must overcome your fear of being labeled a racist. Because that’s what we all fear in trying to open a dialogue with minority communities. It’s when we enter that first juncture of the disagreement we will be called a racist. Anybody want that label?”

Two weeks ago, two Florida deputies shot 15 rounds at a 60-year-old unarmed Florida man who was looking for his cigarettes in his mother’s car, parked in his own driveway.  Sheriff David Morgan of Escambia County hastily took to the airwaves to explain that “the tragedy of this is the noncompliance to the directions of law enforcement officers….Right now we are comfortable from a training perspective that our officers did follow standard protocols. [t]his is a common occurrence. We live in a very violent society.”–Dahlia Lithwick, TheSlate.com

“It’s witchcraft. I’ll say that right now. Well, again, the time of the blue moon every three years, the method of the murders and also our person of interest is known to practice this.”

 Truly I could go on for pages, but you get the point. His words of wisdom, most of which were said in front of a national audience, denigrates the people of Escambia County.
