Cory Sasser’s Final Act Part 1

Featured

Chapter 4 of “The Devil Got Appointed in Georgia”

Robert “Cory” Sasser was a loose cannon as an officer of the law in Glynn County, Georgia.  In the course of time, he went even further beyond just being a loose cannon. Despite the fact, Sasser barged into his ex-wife’s home and threatened her, his actions were still not taken earnestly by officials and the judicial system. The Glynn County Police Department had him arrested for Domestic Violence. After being arrested, with privileged expeditiousness, Sheriff Neal Jump pulled strings by calling a judge after hours to do a bail hearing to get Sasser out of jail. This is the impetus of everything to come.

The domestic violence incident was May 13, 2018. At some point that night or the next day, Sasser and his friend, Robert Hamilton Moore, contacted Joanna Hall, the wife of the man with Sasser’s ex-wife to tell her about the affair between Katie Sasser and John Hall, Joanna’s husband. Sasser continued to annihilate every part of his relationship with Katie and created mass chaos, all around. The importance of this, is that it should have been another red flag for the trained professionals looking on. Although, it was not wildly known at the time, Sasser expanded his madness to include other people. Several “friends” of Sasser who were law enforcement officers should have seen his contacting of Joanna Hall as an alarming progression of the dire circumstances as they were occurring.

According to the Baxley Informer:

“Attorney Alan Tucker was contacted on May 15, 2018, by an employee of Judge Bart Altman and asked to represent Cory in court. Keep in mind that Judge Bart Altman was Cory Sasser’s defense attorney during the Caroline Small shooting. Caroline’s murder, and the way it was handled, had come under scrutiny over the years. Because of that, Jackie Johnson and Judge Bart Altman had a vested interest in keeping Cory’s name out of the media.”

Special protocols should have been taken.  However, in a divine reprieve, another intervening opportunity manifested. In the morning hours of May 17th, after Sasser was released, he called a another friend, Perri Rothemich. While on the phone with Rothemich, a gunshot was heard. Because of concern over Sasser’s welfare, officers and deputies started a search for him. After several hours, they eventually find him in a wooded area in his vehicle. Contact is made with Sasser and the SWAT team was called in.  A standoff ensued. When SWAT descended on the vehicle, they found Sasser had not injured himself  but they had to taser him to take him into custody for violating the terms of his bond.  He was also charged with 2 felony counts of Obstruction of Justice for this standoff. swat arrest_Page_1swat arrest_Page_2swat arrest_Page_3

It was decided to take Sasser to a hospital for psychiatric evaluation.  The Sheriff and the Judges allowed this to happen preventing any arrest for felony charges by the Glynn County Police Department. They allowed Sasser to voluntarily admit himself to the facility for treatment with the caveat that if he checked himself out, prior to being discharge, he would be taken into the custody of the Glynn County Sheriff Neal Jump. This seems out of line with the best interest of the county as it was Sheriff Jump who sidestepped due process to prevent a criminal from spending time in jail.

While Sasser was in the treatment facility, Chief Powell went to the FBI in an effort to get federal intervention with Sasser to prevent any further issues.

On May 21, 2018, when Sasser was released from treatment into Sheriff Jump’s custody. According to the Baxley Informer, still pulling strings for Sasser behind the scenes, Jackie arranged for a bond hearing on the felony charges and even appeared in this hearing. Court transcripts show that to be the case.

The Baxley Informer, also, reports:

“….On May 24, 2018, thirty minutes before Cory Sasser’s bond hearing, Officer Hyer, one of the officers who Cory assaulted, (during the standoff) talked to A.D.A John B. Johnson. John immediately started the meeting by stating, ‘just want you to know that I will listen to everything that you have to say, but regardless of what you say, I am going to tell the judge that Cory needs to be released’.

A.D.A John B. Johnson’s mind was made up, and nothing anyone said would change it.

A.D.A John B. Johnson continued by asking Officer Hyer how long he had been a police officer. When Officer Hyer answered, “four years,” John condescendingly responded, “Well, I’ve been doing this for forty-one years and in my experience, there have been very few times where the offender has actually come back and actually sought violence against the victims.”

Officer Hyer disagreed. He was concerned for the other victims and believed that Cory Sasser would try to kill him. Then when Officer Hyer asked if he would be allowed to make a statement in court, John Johnson told him that he “should be able to.”

Per the Georgia Victim’s Bill Of Rights, Officer Hyer didn’t need John Johnson’s permission to give a statement in court—as a victim, he had a right to give it. Despite knowing this, John Johnson neglected to recognize Officer Hyer during the hearing and never told the judge he’d wanted to speak.

John Johnson violated Officer Hyer’s rights, and then completely disregarded the concerned statements made by Katie Sasser reported in the Crime Victim Liason logs (which, by the way, the district attorneys can access from their office).”

So without much consideration given, on May 24, 2018, Judge Flay Cabiness granted the bond agreement negotiated between the DA’s office.  Requirements in that agreement were for Sasser to turn over his guns to his oldest son and declare that Sasser be banished from Glynn County except for court appearances as well as barring contact with Katie Sasser or the officers he’d assaulted. The judge added that Sasser would be required to check in with his probation officer and showing his location via an app on his smartphone. This was in contrast to the requirements suggested by Chief Powell which were an GPS ankle monitor and seizure of Sasser’s weapons rather than depending on him to turn over weapons.

The phone app used for Sasser to check in on, was wholly voluntary as Sasser had to open the app and manually sign in to show his location versus the recommendation by Chief Powell, which would have kept constant track of Sasser’s whereabouts without his permission.  But Sasser had no intention of using the app; he contacted his probation officer to advise he would be seeking to modify the bond requirements and thus would not be setting up the app at all. The judge and the DA essentially left it to Sasser to comply even though he’d shown he was willing to violate his bond previously and was in a dangerously passionate marriage break up. Right off the bat, Sasser was changing the terms without anyone having any concern about the possible fallout.

As to be expected, Sasser didn’t honor his terms. Officer Hyer was right.

 

CJ’s Street Report Questions 3rd Term for Morgan

On February 11, 2016, Sheriff David Morgan posted a political campaign video on YouTube.  In the final minutes, from 28:45 to 29:15, Sir David explains why he is seeking in a third term, despite the fact that he supposedly believes in term limits and that people serving a third term usually lose touch with reality.

On February 4, 2010, Sheriff Morgan told a community group, “…monopoly money, you lose touch with reality if you are spending other people’s money; so that’s why I’m a big advocate of term limits, of term limits.  I would love to do a second term as the Sheriff of Escambia County.  But let me make this statement to this group as I make to a lot of these groups.  I believe in term limits from the top of my head to the soles of my feet.  If I go stupid and run for a third term, do not vote for me; do not vote for me because you need to cycle people out of these positions.  I need to go back to the business world and understand what it is to balance a checkbook and make payroll, put children through college…”

Here is Sheriff Morgan’s exact quote taken from his February 11, 2016 political advertisement:

“I will tell you now in running for this third term it was a difficult decision for me to make.  And I made that decision because of you; because of you.  Because I see those in our community who want to take us backwards and not forwards.  And some of the candidates that are coming up to run now.  And I encourage you to check out their backgrounds; to check out their backgrounds.  And when you do, you are going to find out why David Morgan changed his opinion and understood that it was his duty to run for another term.”

COMMENT:

The assertion by the Sheriff that he is running for a third term because of the “candidates that are coming up to run now” suggests that Sheriff Morgan has already lost contact with reality.

According to indisputable proof from the Escambia County’s Supervisor of Elections, Sheriff Morgan filed to run for a third term on January 13, 2014.

That was 388 days before Doug Baldwin, Sr. filed to run for Sheriff.  And it was 567 days before former Sheriff Ron McNesby filed to run for the office.

Are we to believe that Sheriff Morgan could look into the future and see 388 and 567 days ahead regarding the character and qualifications of candidates who had not filed to run for Sheriff?  Is Sir David a soothsayer?  A clairvoyant?  A fortune teller?  If he can see that far ahead regarding his political opponents, why does he not stop crime like in the Minority Report?

And when Sheriff Morgan smears the other candidates, what exactly does he have in mind?  What is in their backgrounds?

Doug Baldwin, Sr. is a decorated former Pensacola Police Department officer with assignments in Special Weapons and Tactics, Criminal Investigations, Special Operations, Narcotics Unit, and Department of Homeland Security Protection Liaison.  John Johnson is a decorated former Drug Enforcement Agency special agent.

Sheriff Morgan, on the other hand, has zero first-hand experience working as a criminal investigator, or a narcotics investigator, Special Weapons and Tactics, or Special Operations.  When you look into his professional background before he became Sheriff, he rode a desk in the rear echelon.

So why is Sheriff Morgan running for an unprecedented third term as Sheriff of Escambia County?  Maybe the answer is that Sheriff Morgan decided to break his pledge not to run for a third term because: (a) he can and/or (b) because the local powers that put him into office in 2009 are getting a good return on their investment and want to keep him around.  In other words, is it possible that Sheriff Morgan has now become the political machine he decried in when he ran in 2008?

I agree that Doug Baldwin and John Johnson have better credentials to be Sheriff. I like them both. However, when asked to look at issues that are present now, like the corruption of the position now. Doug Baldwin and John Johnson both said “I can’t do anything until I’m elected.” THAT IS A COPE OUT.

The next Sheriff needs to go to the people and ask them what they need. People like Cindy Cutting and Chris Rogers who have teenage kids who are forever changed by Sheriff Morgan’s status quo.

Doug Baldwin asked me,

” What do you want from me. I have made it perfectly clear that I am against corruption in our community at any level. What else is there to say. I also said that I support your advocacy. So what is it you want me to do. I can’t do anything until I get in office and hold those accountable to the wrongs to this community.what do you want me to do?”

I believe you, as a representative or potential representative of Escambia people, go to the people and create a strong voice against the machine. Neither are willing to do so.

I also asked each of them to put a signature on a anti-corruption pledge. A symbolic measure to be sure, neither would put their John Hancock on a pledge to end corruption within their community. That is striking. Both were almost insulted by the challenge but considering the current state of Escambia County, it is a very reasonable request. I vowed through all the support I could muster to either of them should they sign the dcoument seen below. Both declined.Legislator_Form1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let me first define what I mean by “corruption”.

The Angry Man@the GOP Sheriff Forum

Wow! That is the only thing I can say.

I read about John Johnson’s speech. It didn’t go as planned. He tried to make a point by asking if women and children felt safe going to Walmart after 9pm. The woman he asked didn’t play along. She said she did…OOPS!

Next I watched Doug Baldwin’s speech.

I was very impressed with Baldwin’s articulation, coolness and value based approach. While I don’t necessarily agree with his politics, he was very persuasive. Hell, one of Ronnie Mac’s biggest supporters told me he was there and he would have voted for Baldwin had the election been held that night. He was that swayed by Baldwin’s speech.

Then I watched this:

This is just an attack on the people of the county. Sir David has lost his shit!  He’s an angry man. He has NOTHING positive to say and basically says “Don’t judge me; I didn’t want this job to begin with”.

To that I say, I agree…you should just move along, because you have just pillaged the people of Escambia County. His reluctance to be a politician was so overtly a lie. He’s always wanted to be the center of attention. His $30,000 smile is proof of that. Plus if he was so reluctant, why is he running for a third term since he clearly feels under-appreciated?  No one buys that BS.

Yeah, you used county money to feed into religious organizations that, in turn, contributed to you. Should we look at each agency you donated to, compare the staff of said organization with donations within proximate timing of their campaign contributions to you and see how that shakes out?

Again he went on about “parsed words”.

i-dont-parseN

Needless to say, my feelings in regards to his speech, was a bit angry at how he blamed everyone and said crime statistics don’t show Escambia County is a more dangerous place. Numbers don’t lie. This is just January – June 2015 compared to the entire year of 2014. Already there is a big disparity that is absolutely unexcuseable.

Mr. Morgan, coming from I’m sure what you’d call, “a coward behind a keyboard”, as a sheriff, you are a liar and a FAILURE. Your job is to make Escambia County safe…no, ifs ands, or buts. The buck stops with you. Can’t take the heat? Get out of the fire or the reluctantly held seat that you didn’t want to start with?

A Brief Discussion with Fred Levin

UPDATE:

Candidate Reports - Candidate Log In.clipular
1410047973000-bilde-1

Yesterday, in my frustration, I called to set up a time for a call with Mr. Fred Levin. For those who know, he is the major influence in Pensacola. His political clout can make or break an election. To my surprise and completely off guard, Mr. Levin was able to speak with me right then and there. It was brief but qualitative.

I expressed my concern for the overall perception of Pensacola because of asshats like Morgan and what all he’s doing that is going to be imminently uncovered. I mentioned his financial misappropriation and the sexual discrimination within the Sheriff’s office that is so prevalent that it borders on class action status, according to Marie Mattox. Mr. Levin told me that he had supported Morgan in the past and he realized the image being cast in the public forum that disgraces us all. Morgan being a liability for Pensacola was clear. Mr. Levin seemed unaware of the lawsuits pending by so many employees, particularly women but he suggested that the strongest candidate for Sheriff is John Johnson who announced his official bid yesterday. Mr. Levin suggested I contact Mr. Johnson with all the information I had. He believed that would be the best course of action.

While this may not seem like much, this tells me there is a divide in Levin and Morgan. We all know what that means. Whether Levin supports Johnson or Baldwin or the man on the moon, it seems like he sees Morgan for the liability he is. I would go so far as to say Morgan is a political pariah. This is good news for Escambia County.
