Stop the Presses……

Channel 3 reported that David Morgan pre-filed for Pensacola Mayor. Grover Robinson announced he wasn’t running again a little over 10 days ago. So this comes as no surprise. I predict the consolidation of services talk will escalate. I think the system is rigged. If this plays out as I predict, there will be no denying the corruption in the Panhandle.

I was surprised to see someone else had already pre-filed. Chase Anderson “Andy” Romagnano. He pre-filed in November 2020. As I look at his Facebook page, I find this post from Wednesday at 1:40am:

Legally, I should have been sworn in as Circuit Clerk and Comptroller of Escambia County, Florida on January 5, 2021 but they just don’t want me to have it even though legally I should have been sworn in 3 months ago and already earned near $40,000 worth of salary already just over these three months

http://edr.state.fl.us/…/local…/reports/finsal20.pdf

But Escambia County is wholly corrupt, they act people in Alabama, and I don’t think they understand just how awful a place Alabama is and why no one decent who wants to accomplish anything in the world would ever want to live somewhere as horrible as Alabama.

Having said that I have passed word through intermediaries, the fact is, when you have no money you cannot afford to take Kaplan LSAT classes nor even pay the fees for the real LSAT test and I would prefer to take those course against before the test.

I scored 161 on the LSAT in December 2008 and I have sent an email to someone with influence over admissions at Loyola New Orleans College of Law asking that the LSAT requirement be waived on the basis of poverty and making it clear that I need my law license to earn a living and time has passed, and generally if the admission was approved the things would get done and I even have sent in the FAFSA application and last time I lived off campus, this time I indicated “on campus” which would include enrollment in the meal plan because I am broke, do not have my car, I need my JD badly.

I have received no response from Loyola and in 2010 I received my notification in May I was admitted for the fall and so the wheels .would have to turn quickly and understand if I was going to “find something else” I already would have and I would not have had years of hell where all I am thinking about is “I should have my law license” because “then I wouldn’t be treated like this.”

I indicated to some persons that if it was arranged to have the LSAT requirement waived and myself admitted to the law school at the University of Alabama I would take it because so many want me to “be in Alabama” when I have made clear I absolutely despise them

The reality is at any law school at any school anywhere in America if someone in admissions really goes to bat for a person any number of exceptions can be made to what otherwise is a requirement, the persons getting these opportunities owing loyalty forever.

I am 35 and I honestly should have probably had my first child by age 32 but for people constantly messing with my life when it was without a point just to hurt me when I never would have done it to them because honestly I just don’t care about other people that much, I only care about business and the main problem with Mobile, Alabama is everyone there wastes so much time on the most unimportant and trivial nonsense and it takes energy away from making money and that is why no one who actually wants to accomplish anything wants to live there and why half the people in my high school class left for better.

But if I am not going to be sworn in to what by Florida law I should have been three months ago, someone has to find something for me and understand I cannot rely on “immediate blood relatives”, what others might call “family” because my immediate blood relatives don’t believe me, personally hate me, do not want to see me succeed, and I mean in Pensacola I know of no one to go to where I say “I need favor X” and it gets done the way you can do by walking into a precinct captain’s office in Chicago or Queens

.It’s not possible to “pull yourself up” when you have nothing and no one wants to do anything for you and everyone treats you like crap and this is the problem we Italians have, we don’t look after each other the way Jews and Lebanese do, of course Italian Jews, get looked after by fellow Jews on account of being Jews but we Italian Gentiles all we do is fight amongst ourselves, cut each other down and this is why we still have not made it in America. I am being screwed out of what I legally should have been sworn into 3 months ago just because people in Alabama are worthless, heartless scum who are so unhappy with their own lives that whenever someone leaves their worthless state to try and have better they just can’t accept it.

They are celebrating a warehouse being built in Theodore saying “1,500 jobs”, that is what they celebrate in Mobile County, warehouses, and not anything that actually attracts quality people and they wonder why the hell they have a brain drain.

Huntsville should go ahead and secede from Alabama and annex into the state of Tennessee. But I am trapped in Pensacola broke and I would love to leave, I am sick of my life being shit and being treated like shit, but where the hell do I go?I would need a job, lodging, etc lined up and no one wants to do a damned thing for me and I don’t get it because I would have been the first to do it for them, and then collect the IOU for the favor to be redeemed in a future election. I need my JD and law license but if I can’t get a number of waivers, and basically my admission ordered at a law school for fall 2021 I have to wait till 2022 and need to do something in the mean time but it is now a point of personal pride I have that law license for the awful way people have treated me and all the disrespectful things they have said to me. Just because they feel bad about themselves and have to pick on someone else to try and feel better about themselves. Sean Driscoll once said of me I would give the shirt off my back to help others, but no one could do a damned thing for me. So I will simply say, for those who actually want someone loyal to them and who always repays loyalty, I really am the opportunity of a lifetime so think of what it means to have someone owe it to you, rather than listening to morons following the crowd to pick on them.

But poverty, ostracism, mistreatment, this shit cannot continue, I have had all I can stand, if I am not to be sworn into the office I legally should be sworn into someone has to do a favor for me ASAP to get me the hell out of Pensacola to somewhere where I might can make it like Nashville, Brooklyn, Providence, etc.

I would do it for you.

Why can no one do it for me?- Andy Romagnano/rightful Circuit Clerk and Comptroller of Escambia County, Florida (as Pam Childers lacked the minimum valid signatures….someone please file a petition to disbar David Stafford….)

So after reading this, I really wonder which candidate is worse.

Prognosticating Morgan

About a year ago, someone came to me with information on Sir David. It was the craziest thing I had heard to date. Morgan said he was going to be Mayor of Pensacola in 2022, but it would be a consolidated services Pensacola, meaning integration of the county and city together under him. I thought the old man had finally lost his marbles. First of all he had no real pull with the Downtown Crowd. Secondly, there was no chatter even about that anywhere,

Fast forward to Morgan announcing he was running for mayor at the end of last year officially. And now I get this email, from Mel Pino.

So now I have to ask how Morgan knew there was going to be a push for a charter. Is he psychic or a gypsy? No! This has been in the air for a while, at least among the back room dealers. The public input into things such as this is just window dressing. THE FIX IS IN.

Morgan fancies himself as the King of Pensacola and Janice will create a place for herself in his court. God Help Us!

Covid Distraction

While everyone has been focusing on the COVID chaos, criminals march on in their pursuits.  Namely Sir David Morgan. Over the last few months, Sir David has been putting the word out that he wants to be the Mayor of Pensacola. I know how absurd it sounds to the lay person. I, for one, chuckled until I verified that it was true.

And as a lame duck sheriff, Morgan has donated to his pet LET organizations in a huge way.

2020-368-LET 2019-present_Page_12020-368-LET 2019-present_Page_2

And he even flaunts his refusal to follow statute. He requests for the BOCC to REIMBURSE him for funds he spent before he got approval. And since none of these organizations are being forced to show they spent the money properly, like every other state and federal agency requires, they may as well all be payment for support of Morgan’s mayoral run.

It’s funny because UWF was whining about being asked to repay money after the Auditor General found they didn’t spend the money correctly.  In another article, from the PNJ, it is reported:

“The Florida Auditor General’s office conducted its own review of the program’s finances and ultimately found the university had “no apparent legal authority” to withdraw the extra funds and recommended the university be required to return $2.4 million to the Complete Florida Plus Program. “

That is what is supposed to happen. Pam Childers as the Comptroller of the County is supposed to make sure all monies are spent appropriately, but as we’ve seen, Ms. Childers either doesn’t take her job seriously or she doesn’t care about the law. She’s become the unwitting or maybe willing co-conspirator in Morgan’s financial misappropriation. Who’s to enforce that law? Certainly not Eddins.

Now here’s the millionaire’s financial disclosure for 2019.

The Games Continue

 

 

thu-aug-11-2016-13-20-37-gmt-0500-4
On Aug. 11th, 2016, this was on Morgan’s Facebook page.  His true feelings about citizens finally revealed.

 

I haven’t posted since the Republican primary election on August 30, 2016. I was ridiculously disappointed in the outcome. However, having said that, Morgan has not posted until this weekend on his personal Facebook account. No “thank you” to the voters or cordial wishes or graciousness to the people who supported him. NOTHING.

Not only is that just phenomenally rude but it is exactly the lack of consideration he shows to his constituents day-in and day-out. That along with the “Bite Me” picture above are the only honest glances Sir David has demonstrated on social media.

But beyond this glaring red flag of lack of concern with the people who put him where he is, the most recent crime statistics (based on the record of dispatched calls on the Escambia Sheriff’s office website), the following crimes took place from Wednesday, August 31 (the day after Morgan received the Republican Nomination) and Saturday, September 17th–—18 days.

Burglary Battery Stolen Vehicle Child Abuse Shots Fired Narcotics
250 98 66 36 7 77

What is not specifically represented in the dispatched calls are 4 major types of crimes: homicide, rape, sexual abuse and domestic violence.

Homicides would fall within the “death investigation” category but there is no distinction between manner of death; however there were 67 death investigations. Of that number, an unknown percentage would be homicides.

In looking at statistics on crime from the UCR from 2015, there were 197 rapes that year. That breaks down to roughly 1 person was raped every other day or so. Using that logistical standard, within 18 days, there should have been 9 rapes. Yet there is no representative evidence of even 1. I know this is not the bottom line on statistics because the list of dispatched calls does not indicate the actual crimes committed–just the purpose of someone calling 9-1-1. It is the first glimpse of the crime.

It is well known that crime doesn’t happen in a vacuum. Criminal behavior is composed of more than a single crime. The atmosphere of drug crimes becomes conducive for other crimes. Simply put, drug crimes lead to other crimes. Property crimes and sex crimes are irrevocably linked to drug crime. According to the National Council on Alcoholism & Drug Dependence (NCADD):

Those with a drug use dependency are more likely to be arrested for acquisitive crimes such as burglary or shop theft, or for robbery and handling stolen goods — crimes often related to “feeding the habit.” For example, in 2004, 17% of state prisoners and 18% of federal inmates said they committed their current offense to obtain money for drugs. There are also close links between drug use and women, men and children who are involved in, or exploited by, the sex trade, many of whom are caught up in the criminal justice system. However, there is evidence that drug use is both a pre-determining factor in such sexual exploitation and a means of coping with it.

In criminology, there is a term called the “drug-crime nexus” that has been a tenant in understanding the interrelationship of crimes. It is necessary to find out what drives people to commit crime in order to stop crime. This is not a new understanding. Anyone with criminal justice training in the last 20 years should be versed in this concept.

This is the reason there is a “war on drugs”. This is the reason John Johnson, Doug Baldwin and Ron McNesby focus on drugs in their campaign. Until that is reigned in with diligent patrolling, police interaction (not just neighborhood watches) & constant pressure on the drug community, the other issues will inevitably be the by-product of the predominant problem.

Your Sheriff–Sheriff Morgan– makes it commonplace to lie to you about the crime in community. For example, in the instance of the homeowner in Fox Run who went to WEAR because the ECSO told her that a warning from her homeowner association about 2 home invasions close to her home was in bad faith because they did not happen. It would have been prudent for David Gonzalez from WEAR to independently verify, via the dispatched phone record on the ECSO website whether there were 9-1-1 calls regarding such crimes. Because if Mr. Gonzalez had done that, he would have found that despite what Sir David said or had his minions propagandize, there were, indeed, 2 home invasions in Fox Run while homeowners were at home. This flagrant lie is exactly the type of deception that shows how boldly Sir David will lie to your face about the state of the community. It also shows you the lengths he will go to hide the actual state of affairs from the public to make himself look good. If you can’t fight crime, cover it up or deny it happened. It worked for Hitler.

ECSO Commits FRAUD to Cover LET Misappropriation

PART 1 OF A 2 PART SERIES:

ESCAMBIA CO. SHERIFF REVEALS COUNTYWIDE CORRUPTION

In addition to spending LET money with great abandon, the Honorable Sheriff Morgan debased himself to a new low by exploiting his discretion of this fund even more. It should be no surprise, as Mr. Doug Underhill stated in the Panhandle Politico,  Morgan has been soliciting LET money  to other organizations. This is unprecedented and unauthorized by Florida Statute.  As Ms. Jeanne Griffin stated, the process is that organizations request money from the Sheriff’s office…… ORGANIZATIONS REQUEST MONEY. The fact Morgan has to offer money to people who then have to jump through hoops to get to money, is out of the normal.  It begs the question of “why”?

Regardless of motivations, the most recent foolishness is the Hadji Shrine Temple’s recent golf tournament to raise non-deductible, non-501(3)c donations for operational costs for their organization. This was not something donors could right off. Standard advertising sponsorship was $100 for a sign at one of the tees.They also sold sponsorship for golf teams. It was $300 per 4 man team.

The entire scenario is sketchy.  One afternoon, while canvassing the area for donations, Sheriff Morgan approached Jay Cowick, in his yard. Morgan asked him if he was the man to see regarding sponsorship at the golf tournament. Jay said he was and explained the $100 per sign sponsorship they had. Sheriff Morgan responded that he thought he could probably do better than that. He’d have someone contact this Jay  with more information.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The following Monday,  an unidentified woman called Jay and asked what $5000 would get the Sheriff’s Office. Shocked, Jay said they would have 18 signs, 1 at ever tee (value of $1800) and 2 teams (value of $600).  There was nothing else really that they had to give. They could come up with a banner for the Sheriff for free.  This was agreed upon.

Sources within the ranks of the Hadji Temple confirmed that no further documentation was provided to the Sheriff’s office for this transaction. They did not sign anything; no justification documentation went to the Sheriff’s Office and a check was received.Upon a inspection of a public records request, there is an entire packet of documentation attached for this check. There is an unsigned request form, an email from Alison Morgan to Jay Cowick asking about where to send the check, a letter from Jan 2016 asking the Sheriff’s office to donate items to be given away at the door for this tournament–oh by the way, if they are interested in sponsorship here are the basics. Additionally a Sunbiz printout with the Hadji Temple’s 501(3)c listing , a copy of the tax exemption form, which has no bearing on the request as the money is not for tax-deductible funds.  The troubling part of this is that the Sheriff’s office, according the Hadji Shrine Temple, put this documentation together without their knowledge and hastily so that they did not see that the donations were not going for the crippled children, directly. This entire transaction was doctored up. IT IS FRAUDULENT!

But wait there’s more…

The golf tournament was on May 14, 2016. The morning of the tournament, Sheriff Morgan and entourage arrive with a huge number of campaign signs and starts placing them everywhere. This had the other Shriners questioning just what this check was going to cost them. Upon inspection, the donation was out of the LET fund.  The Shriners did not formally provide a request, necessary by Florida statute. The check came to them after being solicited by the Sheriff.

shriners

This one transaction shows the corrupt nature of this Sheriff and his view of the fund. He went to people and asked them what he could give for donations. What purpose is there to ask people to give. Maybe we can break it down a little. For the Shriners, 18 holes with 18 signs would have been $1800. Morgan got 2 golf teams registered at $300 per team. That is $600 + the sign money is $2400 in total.  He did not get a thing more than if he had only written a check for $2400 to the Shriners. Why $5000?  Influence & power to put up signs illegally without the organization questioning him. This solicitation to DONATE money is bizarre and seems to have proverbial strings, but Doug Underhill corroborates this in the Panhandle Politico article when asked if he intiated the $25K  donation for Cyberthon. His response was, “during a conversation about the program, Sheriff Morgan offered to support the event with LET funding.”

There seems to be some sort of expected quid pro quo for these donations. It is possible that the recipients do not know they are selling their souls to Sheriff Morgan for unspoken future favors. I made this assertion in regards to the GCKH donation in 2014. I am even more convinced of it now.

Recruiting high dollar donations with the caveat of “what can you give me for this money” is a perversion of the altruistic facade the Honorable Sheriff receives accolades for, not to mention the overt cover up the facts surrounding these donations, specifically by fraudulently creating documentation to make the Shriners look like they came to Morgan is simply criminal.  This is exactly the reason the entire Escambia County Board of Commissioners should be impeached along with this Sheriff. The BOCC members have a responsibility to the taxpayers to govern and make sure the money for the county is handled correctly. By giving up those rights, they are faltering in their duty to the taxpayers. The buck stops with them and not knowing is not an excuse for allowing this. The inmate is running the asylum, while the commissioners do nothing.

Part II-An ESCO Deputy Speaks Out: We are Pissed Off!

 

It is not difficult to describe the dysfunction of the ECSO. There is more material to work with than you can imagine. As employees, we see the double standard that is in this place daily and routine for those who are at the top. The constant chatter is that the ECSO has never been run by anyone with the integrity of this administration. As observers of the inner machinations, we are disgruntled when we perceive that the administration–any administration– is incorrect or wrong about an issue. That is commonplace in every organization, but, in this administration, there is no tolerance for disagreement with those who nest in the Ivory Tower.doodle-810-ivory-tower

It is confusing how they believe they are so deserving of respect when we see the workings behind the curtain. Morgan has not made any effort to encourage the officers that work for the ECSO. He spends money on coins to give away so he can look important. If you are lucky,  you may have the chance to be given one–if you are in the right place, at the right time. He gives thousands of dollars to organizations that have little to do with improving communities, drug awareness or crime prevention. But none of those are real problems, according to Chief Haines. They easily circumvent the law due to the vague construction of the65a89-img_3335-1024x768 statute. He actually said that on a live radio show. This is an example of just how honest they are. They are so honest that they will admit on live radio they take advantage of the money from LET because the law isn’t clear.  Wow……..that is alarming by any standard.

We could look at some of the ways Morgan could have spent money from LET that would have been completely honest and would leave no room for judgement.  We can start by looking at equipment. It is not a secret that officers are seeing suspects that are armed with superior weapons than the standard issue 40 cal. handguns that are those issued for deputies. All of the officers assigned to patrol could be equipped with a weapon that would give them an equal chance of survival with an armed suspect. The cost for all officers assigned to patrol, to be issued a weapon that is adequate, is roughly 120K. That is less than the cost of the billboards that have Morgan’s picture plastered on them with the idiotic advice of locking doors. No shit, Moron. I doubt any of us who own a vehicle were confused about what that clicky thingy was on our doors! Yet, he decides to go and spend 130K on putting his picture out there on every sign he could buy. We are supposed to believe  him when he explains that it was a coincidence that it just happens to be a political season. You have got to be kidding me. If he thinks anyone with a brain, with actual activity, believes that, he is an idiot. Of course he bought the signs with the idea that he would be seen everywhere and was assured by his intellectual giant of a Chief that he could smooth it over with deputies who disagree.  The law of the land is this: “The minions will be told what they are to think and that will be that. We will fire them if they think independent thoughts without permission.” Just ask Buddy Nesmith.

There are some good causes out there that could benefit from LET money. We could start with youth sports. It is a great cause and many kids are saved by being involved in team sports. However, Lumon May is not the only one who is involved in sports. There are many deputies that take the time to coach kids in a variety of sports. Why would Morgan not let every employee know that the agency they work for will help with any sponsorship that is needed for youth activities? The majority of baseball teams are required to raise an average of $500 for a full sponsorship of a team. If you consider 25K given to Doug Underhill for the Cyberthon program, helping approximately 50 students a year ($500/per student), it starts to be concerning. That same amount of money would have sponsored 50 baseball teams. There is an average of 13 kids on a team. Morgan could have helped 650 young people (at about $39 per student) with a chance to experience the joy of being a part of a team. He could have offered a chance for 650 kids to be off the street learning about something other than drugs and crime. This is a good analogy of the community. Morgan wants to help the few–more elite– than the many whose lives could be changed by that $39. 

IMG_1463
March 2016

In case the point was missed, I’ll explain further. Morgan cares about pleasing a certain few that increase his positioning in life. May and Underhill to name a couple. I mentioned the name Lumon May and left out the details that even his brother is in on the gig. These two guys are in charge of raising money at ball parks and churches all over the county. The same guys that refused to obey lawful commands of a sworn police officer. These two people get the proceeds from our agency that was obtained by officers risking their life. Why? I can tell you that it is offensive but only a person that has been a cop would know how it truly feels. It is so insulting to see Morgan give money to these guys when he has seen the conduct and sense of entitlement they display when involved in a situation they don’t like. Morgan would have no idea how this feels or looks from an officer point of view because he failed to ever become a cop. He can’t rely on his staff to inform him because it has been established they are mere peons.   I guess it is a way to buy his way into the club and it has a net cost of zero to him. He didn’t risk his life obtaining the funds. Why would he care who gets the money?

In all fairness he has given to PHS girls soccer……wait I think a campaign contributor has a kid on that team. In fact, that contributor happens to be the CFO for the agency. Would there be any bets on if the name Underhill shows up? If you said yes you would be correct. It almost slipped by because the donation is in the name of the wife of Underhill. I guess they didn’t think we would put that together so fast. That is only a quick look at the contribution report. Imagine what would happen if someone actually took the time to look at each contribution and each LET expenditure. It isn’t just Morgan that is to blame. The people on that list know what is happening. Especially Underhill, a quick search of public records would show he has extensive knowledge of how to manage money or maybe mismanage would be a better description. This is the guy that Morgan considers best for the job. He has no proven record of managing even his personal affairs and is slippery at best.  

If you listen to Morgan his “blind” promotion system has been a wonderful addition to the agency. If it works so well why wouldn’t he use it for his staff? One reason could be Haines and his wife probably wouldn’t donate to him. Tharp wouldn’t donate. He would lose thousands of dollars from his staff. It is such a hypocritical message and insulting to believe Morgan thinks everyone is too stupid to see it.   

The truth is that Morgan does not care about the employees or the kids. Haines said it best “we can use the money for anything because the laws are so vague”. With that mentality why would you care about using the money for what it was intended to be used for in the community? Use the money for what best serves the needs of the administration. It is not a secret that all of the administration will be job hunting if Morgan gets beat. Where else could they go and have such a commanding presence with so little ability? thug life1

The dangerous part of all of this is that it just shows Morgan’s disregard for the safety the community. The crime stats just prove that it is harmful to all of us for this man to be in charge at the ECSO.  He gives cops all over the country a bad name. Then as if that isn’t bad enough Morgan have the audacity to claim that “his administration” possesses integrity. Simply put………………….PATHETIC!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So in a nutshell……..we, the deputies, are not so stupid after all. We know what Morgan is doing and it makes us hate going to work. The problem is–until someone sees it– we, the deputies, are stuck. We are all caught up in Morgan’s game of expanding his influence and wealth.  We are being used and will be promptly thrown out when we serve no further purpose to that end . A man in his position that cared about employees and the community would not be so careless with the money that men and women that are truly honorable risked their life to get.

Commentary on the Escambia County Sheriff’s Forum May 23, 2016

I don’t know what to say. Should I start with the biased reporting of Kevin Robinson by claiming John Johnson “attacked” Sir David? Mr. Robinson does not understand the meaning of the word “attack” if he thinks that is what Johnson did.  Johnson merely unveiled the current conditions to the people. Morgan likes to whitewash the community erosion by saying it does not exist.  Escambia County isn’t Never Never Land. It evokes the tale of the Emperor’s New Clothes.  Sir David would have the citizens believe his rhetoric over the statistics, experiences of people around him. Let’s not forget the community vulnerability that cannot be explained away. Citizens are targets in their own sanctuary of Escambia County.  Where there is smoke, someone should be looking for fire.

Finally, to end this rant of bias by PNJ, Mr. Robinson, being a journalist, you should have a better grasp of vocabulary. Could you have used more legitimate wording?  Certainly! Challenged, confronted, impeached are all better descriptions of the dynamics of the forum. Unless Robinson’s vitriol was part of the propaganda machine of Team Morgan, there is no reasonable explanation of Robinson’s choice of words.  Ignorance or Venom—you decide.

P.S.

Mr. Robinson, do you or the PNJ get LET money to provide endorsements of political candidates?

Issues in the Forum

One of the most conspicuous things I noticed was roughly 19 minutes into the video. The moderator noted the long-standing corruption problem and asked what the candidates would do to increase public trust in the ethical (snicker) behavior of public officials. Sir David either misunderstood the question or he chose not to address “ethical behavior”. Funny how there is no reference to the “Good Ole Boy crew” he claims to have removed with McNesby. He’s put that song and dance to bed. Apparently, his hypocrisy has some limitations.

But He does jump into the fact he doesn’t have a “hate-filled Facebook page”.  What does that have to do with corruption or even unethical behavior? It is social media and campaign ads are simply not unethical.  What is unethical is putting a senior officer on admin leave for something that is purely a civil action between his mother and another officer. What is unethical is the targeting of personnel that do not agree with you and forcing another senior officer into early retirement for liking a anti-Morgan Facebook post. How about targeting women and minorities to make their employment environment a living hell of discrimination and condescension? These are unethical.

Perhaps Mr. Robinson and Sir David should take the same vocabulary lessons.

I could continue with the 10+ blatant prevarications & misdirections throughout the forum but I want to discuss something more offensive.  Sir David repeatedly started bombastic, defensive proclamations with “If Escambia County is so bad”.  This is a tragic effort to validate his re-election campaign by trying to bring the virtues of the county to light. He tried to take credit for everything Escambia County great.

So why do I care? There seems to be a perception that I am an outside agitator. That is far from the truth.  I spent the majority of my life in Escambia County.  I came to live with my Dad in 1986. He was a fisherman and a supervisor for BE&K (worked at International Paper).

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

His name was Jim Barnett (that’s why I’m Jimmie). My Dad was an exceptional man in a very un-exceptional world. He was a straight-shooter that people tended to love. His friends will attest to that, I was the pride and joy of his life. As his only child, he spoiled me rotten but in that, he did teach me the difference in right & wrong.

He passed away May 23, 1997. He was a veteran and was buried in Barrancas. There will always be a part of me in Pensacola.

I told that story to talk about the greatness of Escambia County, despite Sir David’s damage. Escambia County is not “so bad” as he would make it sound but he has been detrimental to entire county. He had no hand in making Escambia great, therefore he doesn’t have the power to take away that greatness.

The things that make Escambia great are the people, the values and the ability to live in a community for decades and NOT HAVE TO LOCK THE DOORS. By systematically fleecing the taxpayers, disrespecting the deputies and insulting the citizens, Sir David attempts to blame the community, but I submit to you that he cannot take away anything the constituency doesn’t allow him to take.

As for the disease of corruption, Sir David is patient zero. He is currently the biggest albatross Escambia County has. It is not the Sheriff Dept—it is him. He is either psychopathically delusional or sociopathically indifferent to the crime problem in the county. Sir David is the nexus of racism and discrimination in ECSO as well.  A double digit number of employees have filed lawsuits for discrimination, civil rights violations and hostile work environment.  DOUBLE DIGIT.  This is the largest number in recent history. Ronnie Mc did not have this sort of litigiousness.  When there are this many people seeking judicial relief because of animus at work, maybe it is time to consider the Sheriff is the problem.

In any other job, if you fail so completely by maliciously endangering the community, you get fired or arrested. If you misappropriate money, you go to jail. Why is Sir David allowed to sit in his office? Only the people of Escambia County can unseat this albatross.

“MAJOR DRUG BUST” Purely Accidental

i-dont-parse

Sir David got some face time with this drug bust done several days ago. He was out of town at a marketing conference in New Orleans. This also allowed him time to develop this overblown story of a 4 year investigation that culminated in the seizure of $500K  of drugs.  There are many details of this “investigation” that are being propagated & are false.

To clarify, this pursuit may have been originated 4 years ago, but was it continually worked and on-going? The answer is yes and no. The dealer, Alfred Hayes, went by the nickname “E”. E has been tracked by a “stingray”. The deputies got a line that a deal was going down but prematurely hit the house only to find the money for drugs and no actual drugs. The money “was seized” but no arrests were made and paradoxically, the money was never recorded at the ECSO.

This week, the “bust” in the spotlight, a source who was inside the holding area reported Melissa Buchanan was stopped on a routine traffic stop. No one knows her from Adam. She is in possession and trafficking of a quantity of methamphetamine and is taken into custody. In the holding room at the ECSO, she is overheard trying to cover her own ass to try to make a deal. She calls E but he’s callous as to her arrest but she gives him 30 minutes to arrange her release. After the time expired, in her panic and feeling of being shunned, she dimed him and his cousins out. E is the grandson of a woman that owns a nursing home. The family had been selling prescription drugs of people who had passed on.  This is common knowledge in the community.

The prevarication of events in the press conference were a self-serving narrative developed over the days following these arrests for maximum political collateral for Sir David’s re-election efforts.  An accidental arrest turned sting…not a prolonged investigative effort that finally paid off.  Misdirection and misrepresentation of events…sounds vaguely familiar for the stories Sir David likes to deliver to the unknowing people of the county.

***Correction**** Webster University Confirms Degree but Not Program

Whiteflag.jpg

This morning I received a reply after providing more identifying information in regards to Sir David.

Hi Ms. Staley,

Thelbert D. Morgan is a graduate of Webster University.  He received his Master of Arts degree in Business Administration on 3/9/1979.  He completed his coursework at our McConnell Air Force Base campus.  The MBA program did not start at Webster University until 1982.  Have a good day.

Best Regards,

Don

Nothing happens unless first a dream.”  Carl Sandburg

While this does not completely answer the question of what type of degree. A Master’s of Arts in Business Administration is different than the Master’s of Business Administration. A Master’s of Arts is essentially a humanities liberal arts/humanties degree that has an emphasis on management. A Master’s of Business Administration is honed in towards 30 hours of contemporary business specialties like marketing, economics and corporate law. These degrees are night and day apart.

As he represented himself in a half-truth as to when (1980 vs 1979), where (“Webster’s University” vs Webster College) and what degree he obtained (MBA vs Master’s of Art in Business Admin), I am not sure what he was attempting to lead people to believe is true. That is the “Thelbert Experience” in a nutshell. He does not market himself as he truly is. Would those differences have mattered much to the public? Probably not, but the fact, he broadened every aspect of that degree is indicative of how he expands the truth and how nothing he says can be taken at face value. There is always a con to one degree or another.

I concede…there was a degree but it was not as he represented it, which led to the confusion in confirming his education.

No worries, the military record will be enough.

Degree deceit, Sir David, Fraud, Webster University

Pseudologia Fantastica. Richard Townsend Syndrome…Pathological lying. When a person rises to a level of lying that is complex, intricate and disproportionate to all end views or lying when telling the truth would be more beneficial. It is a pathos–a compulsion. Very rarely do pathological liars lie about one aspect of life and are honest about another, which brings us to Sir David.

The DD214 which either answers questions or creates more, depending on your point of view. To me, it definitively shows that Sir David is not honest about his military record. He was only in the military for 20 years and had 3 occupations throughout that time; thus he does not have 20 years experience in any one but in all 3 cumulatively. Also, either he was in OSI and did not realize it would be significant to his law enforcement career and claimed to be a security police, which makes no sense, or he that was a made up line he tried to get by with but didn’t. Either way, something is off.

Knowing that and many, many of the numerous other things Sir David has lied about, I decided to verify his education, specifically his Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Webster University.  For those who don’t know, the National Student Clearinghouse is a service used to verify educational credentials. It’s a pay service whereby, after payment is made, information is submitted and gathered by a national database. Should that info not be readily in that database, they contact the school directly.  So this is what I did.  Here is the response I received:
