The Media Whore Sheriff

Morgan started his tenure in 2009 and almost immediately got a “big” case.  The night that Byrd & Melanie Billings were killed catapulted Sheriff Morgan to the national media stage. This was “the feather” in his cap. 

According to Edward Bronson, a media expert retained by the defense. Morgan was featured in 239 articles in the PNJ in reference to the Billings case and Patrick Gonzalez. That does not count the numerous national TV appearances, including the Oprah Winfrey Show.  Dr. Bronson reviewed 250 newspaper articles from 2007-2010 mentioning Patrick (Poff)
Gonzalez. 11 of those were from 2007-2008, prior to the murders.  Here is an excerpt from his report:

The quotes by the sheriff in this case:

“Among his notable achievements during his first  term in office,were …His commitment to this level  of cooperation and transparency extended to his  handling of the investigation of the Billings  homicide case in 2009, where, through mutual  cooperation with the national media and his  exemplary investigative staff, in approximately 96  hours, 7 suspects were in custody and in 118  hours an 8th suspect was arrested.”—  www.voteDavidMorgan2012.com

The next serious of news exposure did not portray the Sheriff in such a positive light.

An excerpt:

I submit to you, though, that it is people like Sheriff David Morgan of Florida who is to blame for our current racial state of affairs in cities like Baltimore, Maryland.

A video from 2013 has come to light showing the sheriff of Escambiaso County, Florida, David Morgan, sputtering on nonsensically about black culture.

Morgan’s bizarre speech begins with a criticism of the term African-American with Morgan emphatically stating:

the blacks who currently reside in the United States of America are not from Africa.”

 “I would remind black Americans that you are little less than 13% of the entire population of the United States.”  “Had every one of those people been voter eligible only 13% could have voted for President Obama.”  “If we’re such a racist nation, why do we have an African American president?” [Source]

Lord have mercy! This is a sheriff, people.

The headlines across the internet this created were phenomenal.

Sheriff Morgan Revives “Racist Speculation” “Urban Legend,” and “Junk Science,” to Smear All Young Black Males in Escambia County as ‘Super Predators’CJ’s Street Report, April 12, 2015

Let’s not forget the “Blue Moon/Witchcraft Case”. Morgan made the prophetic statement that “this is witchcraft” about a triple murder purely on the basis of a Wicca book at the suspect’s home. Colossal rush to judgment. I personally contacted nationally recognized paranormal expert, Michelle Belanger, to comment on this statement of the Honorable Sheriff. She made a video to respond.

“The biggest problem in Pensacola right now is you got a Sheriff who is jumping to all kinds of conclusions. He’s creating his own kind of red herrings. …My other problem with Sheriff Morgan is, your average person doesn’t know what a Wiccan is, doesn’t know what a Pagan is. They hear these words from an authority figure, like Sheriff Morgan. What he is doing, either through his own ignorance or his own willful misdirection of the actual facts of the case. He’s betraying the trust that people have put into him……..He is misleading people who he’s their only source for whether or not that’s true. And because he’s seen as an authority figure, they are not going to go out and Google to find out that he’s actually talking out of his posterior in a grievous way that could honestly incite hate crimes.”

I really could go on for days about the attempts of ye olde sheriff to try to bombast everything he can, but I do have other posts on his legacy.

The Implication of Sheriff Morgan’s Over-generalization & Colossal Rush to Judgement

As I have been saying for 3 years, Sheriff Morgan is no criminal investigator. He develops a theory and with tunnel vision. To the exclusion of actual facts and evidence, he plumps up his cheeks and gets in front of the media and touts his own truth. This is what happened in the recent triple murder of the Smith Family. He claims, “this is witchcraft”. Thankfully the public knew enough not to believe it. That has not always been the case.

On July 27, 2009, Morgan staged one of many national press conferences and with all the drama he could muster, he told Ashley Markham, “We found them (the people who killed your parents)”. He hugged the sobbing woman, resting his head upon hers in an embrace, of course, at an angle so that there is good exposure to publicity shots.

This very act should have been the first red flag. How many victims has Morgan ever touched, much less hugged?  He clearly had an agenda as did Ashley. They shared secrets as to what was really behind this crime. Sheriff Morgan–at the time of this shot–knew Justin Billings had gunshot residue on his hands the night of the murder. He knew there were 2 vans. He knew there was more likely a bigger picture other than the scenario he followed. He exemplifies that in this video.

Ashley knew that the only witness to the murders, her brother with Down’s Syndrome, when asked who committed the crime, kept signing “brother” ie Justin. This child did not know traditional sign language. He knew baby sign language, which is signs for things rather than letters. There was a sign for “Mom”, “Dad”, “Ashley (sister), “Justin (brother) that are unique and different from any other signs. This boy signed his sign for Justin over and over. Now the social worker who interviewed the boy did not know the sign, but April Spencer, the nanny, Ashley & Blue Markham and close people to the family did. Ashley conveyed this to someone close.

By brandishing this knowledge, Ashley used this lie to stave off any claims by Justin to the estate. While that is despicable and psychopathic, the real crime is by Sheriff Morgan is lack of ability to run an investigation. Whether this is willful or just pure ignorance, he uses this same pattern of behavior. He eliminated Bud Billings’s work life as a possible murder, immediately. He did the same with the triple homicide, he dismissed the fact that Homeland Security and Richard White’s position as a Cyber-crimes expert with a high security level. Point blank, it is too premature to eliminate any angle. Yet he has done just so by focusing on this farcical theory of “witchcraft”.

This is such a miscarriage of justice because as author, occult expert, Michelle Belanger says in her rant on Facebook,

The biggest problem in Pensacola right now is you got a Sheriff who is jumping to all kinds of conclusions. He’s creating his own kind of red herrings. …My other problem with Sheriff Morgan is, your average person doesn’t know what a Wiccan is, doesn’t know what a Pagan is. They hear these words from an authority figure, like Sheriff Morgan. What he is doing, either through his own ignorance or his own willful misdirection of the actual facts of the case.

I absolutely agree. There is probably no real way to undo the damage Sir David’s misinformed words on both these cases. He has set the tone for every perception every person in Pensacola will ever know of these two cases, as misguided and out of rhythm those  perceptions are.  The thought of Bud Billings being killed by a family member or business associate is far more plausible than the theory of crime as the state prosecuted it.

In the national news footage, Morgan acknowledges there is ties to drug cartels. That is suppressed. It is also mentioned that Down’s boy described how Bud grabbed the man who fatally shot him by the neck. This is corroborate below:

This, IN AND OF ITSELF, should provide the reasonable doubt.
