A Real “Ask the Sheriff” Follow Up

Although it has already been documented by James Scaminaci’s blog, CJ’s Street Report, that Frank Forte perjured himself, I wanted to post his IA exoneration details.  Sgt. Nix provided me with the document, as he already had it.

But before that, I must address the elephants in the room.  Ms. Rodgers, Mr. Haines and Mr.Underhill, I have something to say to you.  Ms. Rodgers, you’re a bully. You have a Facebook page, Escambia Citizens Watch, which is nothing more than a petty, political gossip circle. People cannot openly express their opinion IF it IS NOT yours. You slander people behind their backs. Who does that? Cowards do that.

You personally attacked me in a realm that you prohibited me from seeing or responding in.  You bash my credibility with ignorant accusations. Pat Gonzalez was not a part of that discussion but because you had nothing intelligent to say, so you threw out your opinion on an unrelated matter. Not you, Haines or Underhill have the moxie to bring your opinions to me.  I haven’t blocked you. Say what you are going to say to me. Stand behind your comments. Allow the free exchange of thought. Don’t sic your spouses on me in private messages.

You, Miss Prim & Proper, do not even realize how ridiculous you have gotten.  Darrell Hicks posted something I received. It was a letter from a member of law enforcement who commented on things in that person’s wheelhouse.  Ms. Rodgers, you belittled Darrell for posting something you didn’t agree with.  You falsely labeled the post “anti-LEO”. What?  It was anti-Morgan–not anti-LEO.  Btw, Morgan isn’t even a law enforcement officer.  A cop talking about cop things cannot be anti-cop, but in your ignorance, Ms. Rodgers, you made that assertion. You stand in judgment to everyone with your little bitch boys, Haines and Underhill chiming in to give you legitimacy.  I am here to tell you that you, M‘am,  are the most closed minded, miseducated person around.  Your credibility is CRAP.   Also, who the hell are you any way?   What standing do you have that makes your OPINION better than mine or Darrell’s or anyone for that matter?   Please advise.

Ms. Rodgers, you are the Nellie Olsen of Escambia County

Dangers of Being an ECSO Deputy

It is funny how so many deputies, scared of losing their jobs, want to speak out against the administration under Sir David & his cronies. Here is yet another deputy with a message.

Editorial by a Deputy

As the holiday season starts, I began to reflect on the year. The one topic that causes the most concern is how cops are being attacked. We are 70% more likely to be killed this year compared to last year. That is such an alarming jump. No officer deserves to be killed for merely being a cop. Our society is failing when we allow this to occur and take no action. This should be at the top of the list of concerns of every law enforcement agency in our country.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It is unfortunate, but obvious, the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office does not have the safety of officers at the top of the list. We have seen that thousands of dollars were spent to inform people to lock their doors. Thousands were spent to give David Morgan exposure during an election year. Had Morgan ever been a cop, he would understand the feeling that cops have when they are subject to unprovoked attacks. Morgan would know what the dangers are for cops in the national sphere and here locally.  The increased fear to go into the street and attempt to enforce the law knowing just wearing a badge could mean the end of the officer’s life is a REAL THING. Had he ever actually completed a tour of duty as a cop, Morgan would have likely considered spending the money on dealing with the increased pressure and scrutiny to generate good PR for officers for their own well-being instead of widening the gap between the community and law enforcement.  He could have addressed the elephant in the room in talking about how Ferguson, Trayvon and other national events might affect the cops and community of Escambia County. But instead he has wasted training dollars on senseless simulations, THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS on billboards with his face and meaningless reminders for the community to lock their doors. Or how about the time and cost of educating the ECSO on guidelines for Pokemon GO?  And the real kicker is the time invested in convincing cops that ratting on other cops for minor indiscretions to the upper echelon will get you brownie points. Internal Affairs cases have exponentially increased over the most stupid things like not having signed in on a training log in sheet. Cops are not prepared to work the streets where reality and tragedies occur.

Unfortunately, Morgan chose to take the path of a liar and does what he says he will not do on a continual basis. Moving officers from a precinct may technically not be “closing” it, but it absolutely has the same effect in lack of law enforcement for that area. Morgan will have his social media trolls do their best to insult anyone that tries to present this argument. They will be attacked and told they are not cops and could not know what is best. Documentation will be produced to show that there is not a change of coverage and that geographical area is getting the same if not better coverage. Really that is a lie.

I had the misfortune of being a part of the transition of the Cantonment shut down.  It is a fact there are times there is not ANY officers beyond Kingsfield Road. It is a fact that there are times that only ONE officer is working an area that is supposed be manned by a minimum of 2 at any given time. It is a fact that the coverage is not what it was when there was an active precinct for that part of the county.

When the social media attacks come, know what questions to ask so you are comparing apples to apples. When the roster showing an officer was 10-8 (on duty) in that area is produced, ask to see a roster to compare it to from last year at the same time. When the roster is produced to show that on each shift an officer is assigned and there is always coverage, ask about the total number of officers assigned at this time last year. What Morgan and Haines will not volunteer is that each of those precincts has “flex officers” that do not work traditional shift hours. There will not be a shift from in-town to provide coverage for those positions. Those officers will be lost completely. The overall numbers will fall drastically when compared to the new system of assigning officers. In fact, the total number of officers, including supervisors, will decrease by a minimum of 3 officers each day. Be prepared for Haines to attack this number and show documentation that the number is wrong. He will say that there is no change. The only way he could be correct is, if manpower has been so reduced that there is not a current deputy assigned and the position is vacant.

The truth is this administration has to reduce services because the ability of the leadership has been reduced as well as the funds to develop and keep good cops. Morgan is not a cop and assumed the ECSO would run itself while he was busy trying to get re-elected or networking to enhance his social standing in pure pretense. Haines is not able to admit wrong in any thing he implemented and will not admit when he makes a mistake. He spends more time trying to validate a bad decision and convince everyone else how it is actually a good decision than he does correcting what is wrong and improving the situation. Instead he rides a dead horse on principle.  The result of this failure way of running the show causes us to have less capable officers and officers not having the same experience as we once enjoyed.  Our agency is imploding on itself, but it’s all good if we are making sure that Morgan keeps his celebrity status in good order. Haines is not concerned by failure because he doesn’t know what a successful agency looks like. He wants to build the illusion he has been successful. His objective, or maybe his destiny, is to leave the agency. That is welcomed by any cop that cares about the good of the agency.

My one request to the powers that be is to please just stop chasing off good cops that want to be here and care about the dangers currently facing this community. If nothing else, you should preserve these cops because their community impact will only improve the overall perception of the agency and thereby your own agenda of pleasing yourself. This is a pipe dream because anyone who reads this and is in the position to fix it has been critiqued which is only going to hurt their feelings and cause retribution to the rest of us. But someone has to say something. Someone has to care and that is not David Morgan or Eric Haines and I fear, not Chip Simmons if he is enjoying being David Morgan’s new BFF.

Birds of a feather…..

From the Horses’ Mouths….NO DIGNITY

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

–Martin Luther King Jr.

This was on LEOAFFAIRS.COM, posted Friday:

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!

Sheriff Morgan: It’s OK for Deputies & Daughters Get Their Groove On

traffickingMedium2 For a small community, Escambia County has more than its share of sex issues. Recently, 2 EMT’s (Doug & Leah Manning) were charged with sexual assault and child abuse for offering their teenage daughters to sleep with Escambia County Sheriff Deputies. Two men were videotaped with the 16 year old twin girls who were the kids of Leah Manning. The deputies were Walter Thomas & Mark Smith–both 40+ years old– and are only named specifically because of aforementioned video on a cell phone. The disturbing part of this situation is threefold; 1. How many other deputies sexually assaulted these girls who were not necessarily recorded? 2. How many other teenagers in these girls’ clique may be involved? 3. Why isn’t the Sheriff’s Department actually investigating this OR rather why isn’t a less corrupt agency investigating this? Do bad kids usually punish themselves?

Mark Smith

I have part of an answer. Despite the fact there could be additional sex offenders with badges slapping cuffs on with one hand and slapping asses with the other or more kids that were molested by the men in green, the Sheriff is playing CYA (Cover Your Ass). Truth be told, the “free love” lifestyle is rampant among the Escambia County Sheriff’s office. Sir David is believed to participate in “free love” as well as Rick Outzen, his puppet, who pulled a major political favor out of Morgan by having his girlfriend given a fictitious job upon Morgan’s election as Sheriff. David Craig, Major, Community Policing Coordinator, Communications Director (depending on the day) was also bestowed a job within the Sheriff’s office as a condition of Morgan’s election.

(Damn, I never noticed but they could be brothers!) Surrounded by people indebted to the him, unwilling to live up to their assumed responsibility as well as deputies acting like gerbils crawling all over each other, Sir David doesn’t want his office to look bad.  Who would want all this to come out? Definitely not Outzen—his wife and kids don’t know what kind of kink he has in his step. Certainly not the people who are inservitude to Sir David.  Absolutely not the people who are screwing each other as well each others’ children. We could take it to the Chief Deputy who is a man of God, right?  Holier than though Haines seems inclined to watch Sodom & Gomorrah burn, while he standing by idly. He sees the sins and the sinners but chooses to do nothing to stand up for his supposed values and God. Praise the Lord and pass the popcorn. IMG_3335-1024x768 Should we turn to FDLE, who composed of ex-deputies with buddies involved? Should we look to federal intervention in a region where a criminal informant is given carte blanche to kill while everyone covers it up? Like that really matters in light of a Sheriff who pronounces a “death sentence” over anybody that comes forward. To clarify, “you will wish you were dead if you speak outside this office”. IMG_20150404_185524-1 Justice at work people. Who is next on the victim list? Maybe you? Maybe your children? Don’t let these people walk free in your community. If deputies are so sexually liberated to speak openly about their lifestyle in the workplace, it makes sense that they are prioritizing their pleasure over their responsibility. How many on duty deputies rotated in and out of the Manning house? Last count was 10-15. THIS IS NOT OK. There are reasons for ethical codes for peace officers. They are morally held to a standard that we should all live at. Yet they have the ability to commit the vilest of crimes without word one in the news. C’mon!  In the Billings’ case, every detail and piece of evidence was dumped into the public and pictures were released to get press. Where are those cameras now? Why isn’t someone hounding the Sheriff to keep the public apprised of the further investigation in sexual depravity and molestation in his own HOUSE?

Deviance Pensacola Style—-UPDATED

Mr. Morgan, Mr. Haines, Mr. Craig,

I think it’s time to put all the cards on the table. I have been reminded by quite a few of your colleagues that your aim is to destroy people who cross you. I have been warned you will do your damnedest to ruin me or discredit me. And I also know historically from the news, about how you set up and ruined former Dothan Police Chief, John Powell’s career with your collusion with Bill Eddins. It is not lost on me that during that case something seemed to change the course of the playing field. It appears at some point Mr. Eddins either got “cold feet” or somehow the “dropping of the other shoe” slowed his case. Don’t know what that was but, to be sure, I will find out.

Then there is your persecution of Rex Blackburn and Gene Valentino. Men who merely questioned your competency. In case you didn’t realize that we all have that right in this country but you use Mr. Haines and Mr. Craig to dirty their own hands in your missions to seek out destroy the “haters”.

I know about why you left the Air Force, how your wife played a role in that. I know about your step-children, Blaze & Rose, who willingly participated in “sexual racketeering” in my former hometown of Pensacola. I know about the so-called rocket explosion  you allege you saved people, but where strangely, your name was forgotten the official reports or in the media. I know you fancy yourself a TV star with those pearly whites and shiny metals.  I know about some crazy ass run around you plan on making to get Governor Scott to appoint Eric Haines, after your “win” this next election while you try to make your way into higher politics within the state.  I’m sure Mr. Craig’s clairvoyance, as he puts it, will be involved but know that will be under a microscope this time when the people of Pensacola are “assured of a win” before any votes have been cast. Again, remember you pissed off enough people Shiny Medal, Pearly White Mr. Morgan; there will be a microscope over your every action from this day forward–from the inside of your nest of corruption throughout the community.

So now that we know about you. I wanted give you some background on me. You seem to like to use people’s secrets to try to discredit them. I have no secrets Mr. Morgan but I have a hell of a colorful past. I didn’t grow up in house with a conventional family. My family was scary and dysfunction, at least on the Maddox side (which is the same Mattox family I think you recognize from the attorney in Tallahassee).

e35fa-sammys

I am the daughter of Jim Barnett, a man who ran numbers from Sammy Fiorella, founder of Sammy’s Gentlemen’s Club in Birmingham in the 1950’s. I am the niece ofMichael Maddox, who was deadly con man. He is probably the most colorful person in the family. God rest his soul. In 1985, he was a millionaire twice over (before and after serving 9 years in Terminal Island for RICO violations) in Los Angeles; he owned a business Goldex, Inc. He defrauded millions from people but he dabbled in other industries. He trafficked cocaine and arms within the Medellin Cartel. I can recall as a child, him flying into Birmingham without a call or anything-just out of nowhere with his son, who is my age. He rented a car and had to do business in Atlanta and New Orleans. He did them as day trips as to be home for dinner with my mother and I. His business partner in Atlanta, Maxy (Max Mermelstein) was the money man and he worked with another man Harry (Berkenthal). Both I know, now, were accountants for Pablo Escobar.His day trip to New Orleans was with Joey Marcello (son of Carlos Marcello). My uncle referred to himself jovially as a “Cocaine Cowboy“. It wasn’t until I was an adult I understood the fullness of that statement.

My mother worked for the Alexiou family in Birmingham. I was at the wedding of Hedy Alexiou to Carlos Levya Beltran (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlos_Beltr%C3%A1n_Leyva). That is my history, or legacy as it were. I have never been arrested; I am not a sexual deviant but before you take any measure against me maybe you should consider who is still on my Christmas card list. Who remembers that sweet little girl I was with strawberry blonde hair and ponytails that people tried to protect. Hell, I had bodyguards when I was 8 years old. Please do some fact checking into these names. You will need good clearance as most of these people where in classified federal files, DEA, ATF, IRS. RICO violations brought most of them down but their families are still alive and well and love sitting down talking about the glory days of the their colorful pasts. So when you start trying to trump up some charges against me, which would absolutely make my day, you may want to consider the fallout. What did you say to Mr. Valentino, on that voicemail? Something about “a flak vest and helmet because there will be fireworks”.

PS

The point of this post was supposed to enlighten people on sexual deviance. It doesn’t simply spring up. People don’t have kids that just up and decide to be porn stars. There is usually abuse, exposure or a certain amount of condoned behavior that leads to these things. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and when you see how rotten the apple is, you must question the nature of the tree it came from.

This point also ties in with the actions of the subordinates under Morgan. Just as children reflect their parents to some degree. It is reasonable to say that employees only fall under the standards to which they are kept. Morality is obvious absent in these deputies.  So what deviancy are they following?  To the naysayers, children and subordinates acting in the same fashion, morally corrupt and absent of discipline cannot be 2 coincidences under the same fine leadership. It appears to be a pattern of behavior. We are judged by the fruit that we bear. Mr. Morgan, your fruit, both of your home and office, stinks. Common sense can lead to the conclusion of what that fruit says about the tree.

Can You Hear That?

If you get real still you can hear it, the sound of the bellows coming from the Sheriff’s office. I have been “poking the bear” for a couple of weeks now. I started with Rick Outzen, David Morgan’s mouthpiece and his Public Records Officers.  Then with my article on PanhandlePolitico.com, “What is Wrong with Escambia County Law Enforcement? 

The Dastardly Davids are in an uproar. Eric Haines, Escambia County Chief Deputy was a bit bent out of shape at what he said in another article in the PNJ, which I used for this article. But here’s the thing?  Why get so upset? People do this all the time. I’m just pointing out the obvious. Working under the reign of Sir Morgan, has proven to be a joke. If he had not created his own caricature, no one could use it against him. Mr. Craig is evidently too busy playing with his drone invading the privacy of the residents of Pensacola privacy to notice he was getting looked at under a microscope.

Some people are so enthralled with their own “greatness” that they fail to see what is around them. I think this has been the case here.
