Escambia County Officials Complacent in Child Endangerment: The Readable Version

yourprezi_Page_04

Erin Ambrose is the starting point because the entirety of the story seemingly circles back to her. She is also the person in this story with the most influence and has the greatest obligation to do the right thing. Her job title and ethical responsibility is higher than the rest and her part in this story is the most egregious. This is not an isolated incident for the State Attorney’s office. They have been more concerned with covering things up rathering than pursuing justice. This is case merely epitomizes what happens on a day to day basis under Bill Eddins and his cronies.

Ms. Ambrose, Assistant State Attorney for the First Judicial Circuit, is engaged to a deputy by the name of Jason Young (Jason Von Ansbach Young).

10697416_10100595171443963_3087119126674280417_o (1) Jason is probably the least culpable of the bunch. While he is an adult and a law enforcement officer, which, in and of itself, carries responsibility for serving and protecting the public, he is not an active participant in endangering children; he is, however, complicit.

Jason’s brother and soon-to-be best man in his wedding in January is Ryan Von Ansbach Young, an ex-deputy who is married to Mindy Von Ansbach Young, a current Lieutenant at the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.

The Von Ansbach Young’s have foster children as well as their own children. Ryan Von Ansbach Young posted bail for his wife’s colleague, Mark Smith on 3/09/2015. This act which had to be known by the Sheriff’s Office due to the hand in hand relationships they have with bailbondsmen. If they did not know, it is because they did not want to know. Having a deputy, Ryan’s wife, subborning the release of a child sex offender, by extension, shows complicity of the entire organization for which she and her family represent. This is also the cavaet that Ms. Ambrose falls prey to.

It is telling that this impropriety and the ability to connect this sort of deviant, sex offender with the people who are supposed to police and cage these monsters. Cozying up with them off the clock shows how little regard they have for the humanity they are supposed to be protecting. Of course, this gives a bad message to all that have knowledge of it. Of course, it de-legitimizes the entire criminal justice system in Pensacola, because cronyism trumps proper handling of criminal cases. This is the downfall of the entire community.

The malfeseance is that with all these children in their home, the Von Ansbach Youngs, all current or prior law enforcement professionals, allow a sex offender into their home. They allow said offender to come and go freely with children in the home.

Sr. Deputy Mark SmithEscambia Sheriff's K-9 tops at national trials - Studer Community Institute.clipular

The sex offender, who should not have contact with children is Mark Smith, an ex-Senior Deputy of the Escambia Sheriff’s Office. He is awaiting ajudication currently for multiple counts of sexual battery/rape of children over 16 and under 21, which has been minimized through the State Attorney’s office. Most counts being reduced to misdemeanors, even though there is video evidence of his impropriety as well accounts of sexual misconduct against others that the Sheriff’s dept. refused to acknowledge (See my post “Where’s Gavin?“)

Coming full circle back to Erin Ambrose, who is SUPPOSED to be an advocate of the children molested, battered and raped by  Walter Thomas and of course Mark Smith, who were both Escambia County Deputies at the time of the offenses.

10473866_10204243856329120_2942019695593477156_n 1015429_10200868804664193_937361007_o

The most malicious of the acts in the fact that not only is Ms. Ambrose violating her position as Assistant State Attory by being involved personally with a case she is prosecuting but she is closely entangled in this family that neglects their moral and ethical duties as servants of the county and officers of the court to protect children against exposure to child sex predators. She knows what happens in this close knit family that she is about to become apart of and is aware of Smith’s consistent presence in the home as well as his “access” to the children. That is a conflict of nature that corrupts the entire justice process.

The girls victimized by these sexual predators are not being protected by the system. The system is more interested in covering its ass. In addition to this situation, regarding this same case, Sheriff David Morgan effectively endowed Gulf Coast Kids House with $50K for a new wing AFTER he personally became aware of the abuse of his deputies on children. This was a stop-gap measure to preemptively control the reaction of the Gulf Coast Kids House when the story inevitably became public. These two organizations colluded to sweep this incident under the rug with Gulf Coast Kids House turning a blind eye to the additional victims that may have been affected by the deputies that Sheriff Morgan failed to investigate.

This is the price of silence in Escambia County. 

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.

Justice Withheld

bildehttp://www.pnj.com/article/20140412/NEWS11/304120015/Gonzalez-death-sentence-upheld-in-Billings-murders

As expected, the Florida Supreme Court upheld Patrick’s conviction for the Billings Murders.  The articles claim, “In upholding the conviction, the state Supreme Court found that the convictions were supported by competent, substantial evidence, according to the State Attorney’s Office.” That is a purely laughable statement.

In the public records, in plain English, the state acted against judicial canons of publicly making statements pertaining to pending litigation. They told the public that these men were guilty and used every available news outlet to do so. This is ethically and legally prohibited.  But forgetting all the improprieties in procedure by the state, the DEA, FBI and Homeland Security have no interest in Patrick because he wasn’t the “mastermind” of anything relevant to this case. The fact that these agencies are involved supports the claim of this being a much bigger investigation than what happened in Pensacola in July 2009

Blue Markham gave the van used in the crime to Cab Tice a couple of months prior to the crime. The rest of the evidence clearly leads to Hugh Wiggins’s door. DNA evidence puts Hugh Wiggins in the Billings’ house with Byrd’s blood on his gloves. He also had the safe taken from the house as well as the murder weapon. Found with an arsenal of weapons in intracoastal waterways, his “limited” immunity frees him from ALL charges in Florida and Mississippi  Then you have the surveillance tape which shows a completely different series of events than the prosecution ever presented.  How is that possible?  The tape is the key to this and the state completely disregards the actual events because they don’t fit their version of the crime….really????

This is all beyond logical comprehension. How can a man be sent to Death Row by what amounts to a trial in the media? Think about it. This could be any one of us. Would you trust these officials to find justice if you were in Patrick’s shoes?

Surveillance Tape: Fact or Fiction?

I have recently been tipped off to look for information in the surveillance tape. Ashley & Blue had the release of the full surveillance tape suppressed because of the “graphic nature” they do not want to relive. As understandable as that is, I am thinking there are other reasons the tape was never released.

CBS got a computer animated version of the surveillance tape that is allegedly true to the real surveillance tape. Here is a still shot from that version:

Notice two left-handed people with rifles come in the front to Byrd, while one right-handed person with a handgun comes in the back.  In watching the rest of the video, the first shot to Byrd Billings leg was done by the person who entered from the back, the right-handed gunman; then they all proceed with Melanie into the closet. Three assailants and two victims move to the closet. Each of the assailants alternatively shoot both Melanie and Byrd.

There are so many inconsistencies in this computerized version, at least according to the prosecution team. They cannot account for the 2 lefties and 1 righty. The number of people in the house is not consistent with their case. The fact there are 3 shooters when there allegedly was only one shooter according to the Bill Eddins. None of the facts of this tape jive with the prosecutor’s version.

Now tell me why the facts don’t line up with the prosecutor’s version of the crime.

Revelation

To fully understand the business, political, criminal climate of Pensacola at the time of the death of Byrd and Melanie Billings, you must understand all the players in the “good ole boy” system.

April 30, 2002

W.D. Childers, Willie Junior, Mike Bass and Terry Smith, all Escambia County Commissioners, were indicted on political corruption charges including bribery, coercion, and racketeering. This was the soccer complex scandal. The commissioners offered to buy the defunct complex and Stalnaker dealership from Joe Elliott and his wife for an exorbitant amount of money, far exceeding the value of the property.  These commissioners were paid to vote for the deal.  What comes out in the wash with casualties is the laundering of money from “unnamed” sources.  Stalnaker Mazda, an auto dealership in Pensacola is one of the many tied to organized crime. W.D. Childers is convicted and jailed ending a 30 year political career that included a seat on the Florida Senate for 8 years.

 

180px-JuniorFuneralHomeDriveThru

Willie Junior, a character in the Pensacola landscape owned a funeral home.  He became the first black commissioner since Reconstruction in 1977. He was a presence in the history of the city.  In 1986, he made news for having a drive-thru mortuary. People could drive by to see their beloved in a window. He was flashy and lived far beyond his means. Junior slept around and gave at least one mistress a job until the affair ended when he promptly fired her. Historically innovative and eccentric to boot, he was convicted like Childers. In Willie style of drama, he conveniently disappeared before he was sentenced. For a month, no one knew what happened to Willie.  It was speculated he fled or was in hiding in the city. He was still causing news in his own way until December 9, 2004, Willie’s body was found under an ex employee’s house. He had 2 Heineken beers and a empty bottle of pills. The autopsy said cause of death was due to anti-freeze poisoning that had been in the beer. To everyone this was just too bizarre to be a suicide. Willie Junior had style. He was a legend in his own mind.  Would he go get a haircut  on November 9th and crawl underneath a rundown house like a dog to die? If anybody has seen the movie “Next Friday”, Willie Junior reminds me of Pinky from that movie. He was that kind of man. Crawling under a house?  Not dramatic enough for Willie. Just doesn’t make sense.

Until you look at Willie, he issued a 6 paragraph public statement saying W.D. Childers’s greediness got him into this and he was going to “blow the lid of further corruptions” by  W.D. Childers, Mike Bass, Terry Smith and others. Not a smart thing to say publicly.  He agreed to be a “star witness” in further investigations. Then Willie is found dead under a house. This is the Pensacola that gave birth to Ron Samuels’s cocaine dealing and hiring of hit men, as well as the Billings Murders. Screwing with the money train of the Pensacola auto business is deadly.  This is all linked my friends.

Blind Justice

When I started my research, I suppose you could say I was blissfully naive. I knew there were cases that were bungled. I watch Discovery ID. I wasn’t oblivious to “blind” justice. However, I wasn’t prepared for justice that was willfully deaf and dumb as well. One of the first contacts was someone investigating Bill Eddins for ethical and prosecutorial conduct. This was one of my first red flags.

Another red flag was Sheriff Morgan stating he would not be investigating anything pertaining to the Billings’ business dealings.  WHAT????? Any kind of investigation should focus on the life of the victims. Anyone who has ever seen CSI or for that matter anyone who knows human nature would know that murders are seldom committed by strangers. This was no random incident.

Byrd and Melanie had a no social life to speak of outside of family. What’s left? Family & Business. We know Justin tells deputies that he saved his girlfriend by paying for her safety.  Why didn’t he pay for his family’s safety or his own personal safety? In a nutshell he knew what was going to happen, so why didn’t he warn his parents?

He claims his buddy Walter in Colorado confirmed it was a “hit” and not a robbery. Who the hell is Walter?  Why wasn’t he interviewed? What did he know? Why was Justin in on it?

Taking a step back, in researching the Zetas activities, I found that their activities are based in the southeast and southwest, Colorado and Florida included. So if the theory of this being an organized crime hit is true, Justin and Walter make sense, don’t they? I have found that in researching people that the simplest explanation is usually the correct one.  The simple explanation that makes all the craziness of this trial make sense is that Byrd & Melanie were casualties of a cartel.

An Analysis of the Criminal Justice System; My Rant

Image

Throughout history, the lawmakers and lawbreakers have been engaged in a sort of tango in the dance hall that is politics and legalism. Each plays a role in American society today.  However, there are factors that affect and temper the rules that the lawmakers and lawbreakers each define. The Declaration of Independence states, “all men are created equal”.  The American justice system’s states all men are not treated equal.

The American justice system can be called many things, but fair and equal justice simply does not exist.  While most of the country goes to sleep at night believing that, the guilty go to jail and the innocents are exonerated, the reality is that the American justice system does not wear these same rose colored glasses.  The laws and lawmakers cherry pick the people to make examples of by tailoring and punishing laws that preclude themselves. Gender, race and class are weapons that are used to do just that.

The contradictions of crime, law and justice in contemporary America are evident in this day and age by merely watching a newscast or reading an article on modern day issues.  The powers that be in America, the elected officials, litigators, and judiciary have an apparent sliding scale on measuring guilt, guiltlessness and criminality. Justice is not equally distributed in American society.  The lawmakers get “tough on crime” every election, but only “street crime” is addressed in the “tough on crime” campaigns.  White-collar crime has a very comfortable place out of reach of the long arm of the law.

Social deviants who are indifferent to society and the repercussions of their actions commit crime, right?  But who are criminals? Criminals are defined as the people who commit acts against their fellow man and/or society.  They should be caged and punished. What if you are Edward Lee Elmore and are convicted for committing a crime that you did not commit and being innocent is not enough to overturn a malicious prosecution? According to the New York Times article, “When Innocence Isn’t Enough” of March 2, 2012, by Raymond Bonner, evidence that could exonerate Mr. Elmore was not enough to get a re-trial or his release.  Innocence is simply not enough.  Mr. Elmore is the stereotypical criminal that society wants behind bars.  His education is low; he is indigent. Because of these factors, he was kept imprisoned for a crime he did not commit.  While justice finally did arrive and he was eventually released, it was a begrudging act. Mr. Elmore’s real crime was his socioeconomic class. 

Yet there has been no effective prosecution of the major banking corporations that caused the economic collapse of 2008.  Egregious fraud, misappropriation, inflated CEO bonuses while corporations shafted stockholders, have been undeniably prevalent and common place in the America but no successful prosecution has happened.  Events that were the basis of a significant increase in crime and criminals as a means of survival, snowballing into economic disaster for millions of Americans go unprosecuted.  In our society, Mr. Elmore is the criminal, the CEO’s de jour are not.

Robert Hare, an expert of psychopathology, applies a checklist he has compiled to help diagnose psychopathological tendencies to corporations.  His findings were intriguing.  “..they are irresponsible by putting others at risk; manipulative of everything, including public opinion; lack empathy for others and are unable to feel remorse; refuse to accept responsibility; and relate to others superficially The standards that define criminality do not apply equally to all people and all businesses.  The scale is tipped by corporate lobbyists and government deregulation to facilitate business as usual on Wall Street. If such atrocious actions were taken by a gunman in downtown Detroit, the question of whether to arrest or punish him would be a “no brainer”. Yet we do anything but punish corporations.   It is not on in the American government’s best interest to see Wall Street collapse.  The Wall Street-Washington Corridor is a superhighway of crossover interests. 

“Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” Although the Declaration of Independence, seems to empower a government “for the people, by the people”, the American Justice system disagrees.  America has turned into an oligarchy with competing self-interests that result in the exploitation of the country.  Equality and fairness is legislated now.  Poverty is criminalized.  Criminals should not be on the street, yet they are not all punished.  This contradiction is the first pebble in the crumbling of the America created by the Founding Fathers.
