NOT JUST OKLAHOMA (ROBERT BATES)==TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA: PAY TO PLAY COP (DON ODHAM); LEON COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE & STATE ATTORNEY WILLIE MEGGS’ OFFICE—HANDS WIDE OPEN—MONEY, MONEY, MONEY

Published April 15, 2015 by MAUL10

Tallahassee, Florida—Who ARE certified law enforcement officers? Who are NOT? We would all like to believe that our local law enforcement officers are qualified to protect our rights and are properly skilled and certified to do their job

FLORIDA CITIZENS BE AWARE—17-year-old DeShon Thomas was accompanied by his mother when they walked into the Leon County Sheriff’s Office on January 28, 2011. Neither Thomas nor his mother thought that a close friendship with then, Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell and Sheriff Campbell’s son, Assistant State Attorney/Prosecutor Jack Campbell (Meggs’ Assistant Attorney), along with money, money, money– had privileged Don Odham, a non-employee of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office, to COMPLETELY RULE over veteran certified law enforcement officers. SERIOUSLY! Mr. Don Odham violated several of Thomas and his mother’s rights, including ignoring Thomas’ mother’s invocation of her minor son’s Miranda Rights and preventing Thomas access to an attorney. Other deputies stood by idle while this all occurred. The friendship and money provided to Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell elevated Mr. Don Odham above all including the Sheriff’s Command Staff, which included current Leon County Sheriff Mike Wood and current Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Richard Swearingen’s brother, Robert Swearingen. Leon County Sheriff Mike Wood was appointed by Governor Rick Scott in January 2015–Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell passed away in December 2014.

In order to charge and convict Thomas in October 2013, based on “Pay to Play Cop—Don Odham”– ALL of the NUMEROUS hours of training of several teams of detectives, Crime Scene Unit, K-9 Unit, laboratory testing—all of these state certified law enforcement officers and agencies had to fall flat—making them look incompetent in their professions. In addition, there were legal documents notarized and filed with the Leon County Clerk of Courts identifying Mr. Don Odham as a Leon County Sheriff’s Detective—these documents contained FALSE information. While Mr. Don Odham did not wear a uniform, he had a badge and his own patrol car to take home. Mr. Don Odham was NEVER deposed in Thomas’ case, yet, Mr. Don Odham (alone) claimed to have obtained incriminating statements from a witness that led him (Mr. Don Odham) to prepare the Summary of Offense and Probable Cause, then he (Mr. Don Odham) provided the Probable Cause to Sheriff Campbell’s son, Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell—charging Thomas with possession of drug paraphernalia, cultivation of marijuana, two counts of 1st degree murder, possession of a firearm by a juvenile delinquent, and then a year or so later—simultaneous to Thomas and his mother firing his private attorney—Thomas was charged with Solicitation to Commit 1st Degree Murder. Thomas, who was 17-years-old in 2011, was a full-time freshman at Tallahassee Community College and had been on his job at a local fast food restaurant for nearly a year. Because Mr. Don Odham was NEVER deposed, it would take nearly 3 years (during trial) for Thomas and his mother to learn that Mr. Don Odham has nothing more than IMPOSTER. While Mr. Don Odham had been spoken to the jury as “Detective Odham”, the truth of the matter was “Detective Odham” was IMPERSONATING A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER under the protection of Sheriff Larry Campbell and others. And Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford was allowing State Prosecutor Jack Campbell and Thomas’ court appointed defense attorney, Conflict Counsel Daren Shippy, to LIE and MISLEAD the jurors. Convicting Thomas had taken nearly 3 years. Three years of CORRUPT JUDICIAL OFFICIALS—who WENT OVER & BEYOND to violate several of Thomas’ rights–including bullying him into pleading no contest to possession of a firearm by a juvenile delinquent. Because all involved knew that Thomas was CLEARLY INNOCENT! None of Thomas’ four court appointed attorneys set out to depose Mr. Don Odham. Thomas’ mother (single mother of four) paid defense attorney Greg Cummings nearly $30,000—Cummings refused to depose Mr. Don Odham and the witness who Mr. Don Odham claimed to had given him incriminating statements. Cummings failed to inform Thomas of Mr. Don Odham impersonating a law enforcement officer. Cummings refused to provide Thomas with both victims’ autopsy reports. After Thomas fired Mr. Cummings, Thomas was charged with solicitation to commit 1st degree murder and put in solitary confinement for over a year—where Thomas was unable to make phone calls (including to his home) and unable to have any visitors. When Thomas filed a Florida Bar complaint against Mr. Cummings for failure to disclose and other obvious violations of The Florida Bar rules, Thomas’ complaint fell flat.

Before and during Thomas’ trial, veteran detectives did not support Mr. Don Odham accounts that led to Mr. Thomas’ charges. Apparently, those veteran detectives were aware that their credibility along with the TEAMS of other veteran law enforcement officers, agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (Jacksonville) was nothing in comparison to Mr. Don Odham’s money and friendship with the father/son team. Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell and his command staff charged the suspects and Sheriff Campbell’s son prosecuted them—ensuring their conviction by ordering the judge around—including having judges to sign-off on frivolous search warrants and probable cause affidavits containing false information. “Pay to Play Cop—Mr. Don Odham” versus PROTECTING THE COMMUNITY.

Money in both political parties—How much MONEY does it cost to go “Play Cop?”

Mr. Don Odham and his wife gave money to Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell (Democrat), and Mr. Don Odham gave money to the Republican National Committee. Could this be why Thomas’ appeal is turning out to be as much of a joke and the circus leading up to and through his trial? If any political party truly wish to save tax payers money—then they should STOP selling out to IDIOTS!

WHEN MEDICAL EXAMINERS ARE ORDERED TO LIE ON THE WITNESS STAND—FLORIDA MEDICAL EXAMINER STATES THAT HE WAS TOLD TO…

Published April 10, 2015 by MAUL10

Tallahassee, FL—Dr. Anthony J. Clark with Florida’s District Two Medical Examiner’s office committed perjury during the double murder trial of DeShon Thomas. Thomas, who was 17-years-old, was charged as an adult in January 2011 double murder case in Tallahassee. Dr. Clark’s perjured testimony helped State Prosecutor Jack Campbell secure the convictions against Thomas.

State Prosecutor Jack Campbell’s dad, Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell, was investigating the double murder case. There was no physical evidence linking Thomas to the double murders, therefore, the Campbell’s (father son duo) had recruited a family friend, Donald Odham, a non-employee of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office, to impersonate a certified Leon County Sheriff’s Detective to make their case against Thomas. Mr. Odham was assigned lead detective on the double murder case, replacing the acting lead detective and her team of detectives. In addition, there is notarized court documents filed with the Leon County Sheriff’s Office identifying Mr. Odham as a Leon County Sheriff’s Detective. And Mr. Odham was allowed to testify before a jury under false pretenses.

Dr. Anthony Clark’s testimony in comparison to his original autopsy report of the victims is clearly contradicting in order to support the Campbell’s theory. In October 2013, Thomas was sentenced to Two Life Sentences plus 30 years.

Recently, the family of Mr. Marlon Brown received information that a medical examiner, Dr. Shipping Bao, was ordered to change information on Mr. Brown’s autopsy report. Mr. Marlon Brown was rundown by a Deland Police officer’s patrol car and pin to a fence. Dr. Bao, states that he reported Mr. Brown’s cause of death as a homicide, but was ordered to change the cause of death to mechanical asphyxia, and that there was no evidence he (Mr. Brown) was struck by the police car.

Mr. Marlon Brown’s family attorney, Benjamin Crump was quoted as to saying, “Look at Dr. Shipping Bao’s affidavit. It speaks for itself.”

In the double murder case of DeShon Thomas, it is believed that Circuit Judge James C. Hankinson and Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford and Thomas’ court appointed attorneys were aware that Don Odham was not a Leon County Sheriff’s Detective, hence was the foundation of the nearly three years of judicial officials conspiring to secure Thomas’ convictions. State Prosecutor Jack Campbell refused to allow the District Two Medical Examiner’s Office to make the victims autopsy reports public record. Thomas’ defense attorneys refused to provide Thomas a copy of the autopsy reports. Thomas’ defense attorneys refused to provide Thomas’ mother with a copy of the victims autopsy reports—this prevented Thomas’ mother from seeking an opinion of an independent medical examiner. Early in the case, Thomas’ mother paid private defense attorney, Greg Cummings, nearly $30,000 to represent 17-year-old Thomas. Mr. Cummings promise Thomas and his mother to provide them with the victims’ autopsy reports. After being on Thomas’ case for nearly two years, Cummings never provided Thomas with anything—not even the victims’ autopsy reports.

A medical examiner being ordered to commit perjury or change autopsy reports to support or protect the State of Florida is a crime. It and a harsh deception to victims, defendants and the citizens in the community by all government officials directly and indirectly involved.

INDIRECTLY, EVIL WITHIN THE BLOODLINE—ANDREAS LUBITZ

Published April 7, 2015 by MAUL10

Tallahassee, FL—ONE HUNDRED FIFTY PEOPLE MURDERED! 150 babies murdered! 150 sons and daughters murdered! 150 dreams dead! Babies who did not walk or talk—murdered! Young teenagers who possibly had not gone out on their first date—murdered! Husbands lost their wives. Wives lost their husbands. Sons and daughters lost their mothers and fathers. ALL MURDERED!

It’s been reported that one of the black boxes from Flight 9525 recorded the screams and crying of the passengers aboard Germanwings, as co-pilot Andreas Lubitz–DELIBERATELY PLOUGHED—the passenger plane into the French Alps on March 25, 2015—MURDERING ALL ONE HUNDRED FIFTY PASSENGERS.

Was Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz suicidal? Some media outlets have reported—YES, ANDREAS LUBITZ WAS SUICIDAL.

Who knew that Andreas Lubitz was suicidal? Some media outlets have reported of all important sources—GERMANWINGS–WAS AWARE OF ANDREAS LUBITZ HAVING BATTLED DEPRESSION FOR SIX YEARS PRIOR TO COMMITTING SUICIDE AND 150 MURDERS.

ONE HUNDRED FIFTY LIVES LOST IN AN INSTANCE. OVER ONE HUNDRED FIFTY FAMILIES LIVES FOREVER ASSOCIATED WITH GERMANWINGS FOREVER—AN ENTIRE INVASION!

Not at once. But over TOO MANY YEARS—PEOPLES LIVES HAVE BEEN STOLEN! Not at once—but over TOO MANY YEARS—PEOPLES LIVES HAVE BEEN STOLEN! More than 150 LIVES—BUT 1 STOLEN LIFE IS TOO MANY!

HOW MANY INNOCENT PEOPLE ARE IN FLORIDA’S PRISON SYSTEM FACING LIFE SENTENCES? How many defendants screamed at the reading of the guilty verdict? How many parents yelled and reached out to their INNOCENT CHILD/ADULT-CHILD? How many kids cried for their INNOCENT parents as they were being led out of the courtroom? Unfortunately, there is no blackbox to record such a TRAGIC MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE!

Who knew that the DEFENDANTS were INNOCENT? The detectives, the state prosecutors, the defense attorney, the judges, the medical examiners, the witnesses… Who DECEIVED the community that they ARE supposed to PROTECT? Who DISHONORED A SWORN OATH? Who bare FALSE WITNESS?

MORE THAN 150 LIVES—BUT 1 STOLEN LIFE IS TOO MANY! INNOCENT PEOPLE IN FLORIDA’S PRISON SYSTEM IS A TOTAL INVASION ON THE LIVES OF THE VICTIMS FAMILIES, INNOCENT INMATES AND THEIR FAMILIES!

On March 25, 2015, Andreas Lubitz was the only person whose life was fulfilled—his plan as a child to be a pilot—his dream to pilot a commercial jet—his plan to commit suicide in the manner in which he chose.

Over the years, so many lives and dreams have been cut short by Florida’s corrupt judicial system—not because of what a person may have done—but what those within the EVIL BLOODLINE—***Gregory Cummings? Jack Campbell? Larry Campbell? Willie Meggs? James Hankinson? Jackie Fulford? Donald Odham? Daren Shippy? Dr. Anthony Clark? Eric Trombley? Georgia Cappleman? ????????????

Former United States Chief Assistant Attorney for the Department of Justice Northern District of Florida James C. Hankinson and Second Judicial Circuit State Attorney Willie Meggs; Corrupt Predators At Large

Published March 25, 2015 by MAUL10

Tallahassee, FL—According to former United States Chief Assistant Attorney James C. Hankinson’s biography, he is currently a Second Judicial Circuit Judge presiding over cases within the Leon County Courthouse located in downtown Tallahassee. Prior to Hankinson’s employment with the Department of Justice– Northern District of Florida, Hankinson was employed as an Assistant State Attorney for the Second Judicial Circuit under State Attorney Willie Meggs. Hankinson’s judge’s chamber is located steps away from the Second Judicial State Attorney Office, where Meggs has been overseeing since the early 1980’s.

Both Hankinson and Meggs have earned a reputation in Tallahassee as being “arrogant” and “tough” in their handling of criminal cases. During pre-trial hearings, Hankinson directs bailiffs to bring in the “prisoners” in such a preconceived manner. Despite the majority, if not all, of the inmates being Leon County Jail inmates.

Meggs and about forty-two of his Assistant State Attorneys/Prosecutors serve six counties in Florida’s panhandle—mostly rural counties. The State of Florida is the major employer in that area of the panhandle (143 miles—I-10 east and west). There are a lot of people who commute into Florida from the State of Georgia State in order to work. One misstep with law enforcement, before inmates have their trial before a jury of their peers—according to Hankinson—they’re prisoners—and Hankinson shows his support to his former boss, State Attorney Willie Meggs, by catering to Meggs and Meggs’ Assistant State Attorneys/Prosecutors– State Attorneys/Prosecutors who blatantly withhold exculpatory evidence and the defense counsel is too afraid or whatever to present a descent defense for their clients. Assistant State Attorney/Prosecutor Jack Campbell stated that he (Campbell) has told judges what court appointed defense counsels to assign to cases of indigent defendants—and the judges abided by their order. For more than ten years, Assistant State Attorney/Prosecutor Jack Campbell prosecuted cases in that his dad, Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell was investigating.Leon County Sheriff’s deputies committed perjury and violated other laws to ensure both Campbell’s came out on top. In the case of State of Florida vs. DeShon Thomas, Hankinson violated several of DeShon’s civil rights for nearly 3 years as DeShon sat in the Leon County Jail awaiting trial, before abruptly being replaced (or whatever) by Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford. During trial, it was learned that a wealthy friend of the Campbell, named Donald Odham, who was a non-certified law enforcement officer–a non-employee of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office had been provided with a badge and a patrol car was allowed to perform the duties of a Leon County Sheriff’s Detective. Several cases in which Mr. Odham played a role, including one in which Mr. Odham was assigned lead detective, the families of the victims and the defendants have reached out to the Federal Bureau of Investigation to conduct an independent investigation. Meggs’ Office filed documents with the Leon County Clerk of Courts identifying Mr. Odham as a detective. This misrepresentation of Mr. Odham is fraud. Mr. Odham was allowed to testify in many criminal cases as a detective, in that Mr. Odham was presented to jurors as a Leon County Sheriff’s Detective. Mr. Odham did not have the certification or the credentials to be a detective, but with the support of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office, Meggs’ State Attorney’s Office, the failure of court appointed defense counsel to depose and expose Mr. Odham’s credibility, and the judges idled tongues, Mr. Odham proceeded the courts system with confidence–know that he was an impostor.

In Tallahassee, the median household income is less than $32,000. Most defendants qualify for court appointed counsel. Many local attorneys are registered with the State of Florida to represent indigent clients when there is a conflict of interest. These are the attorneys in which Assistant State Attorney/Prosecutor Jack Campbell is on video boasting about—as he is telling Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford what attorney to appoint in a case where the inmate, Dawuan Williams, robbed two banks in Tallahassee and fled to Tifton, Georgia. On the video, Fulford acknowledges that she can’t just pick an attorney to assign to cases—stating that the clerk assigns them. However, after a sidebar with Assistant State Attorney/Prosecutor Jack Campbell and Public Defender Nancy Daniels, Fulford assigns the attorney to that Assistant State Attorney/Prosecutor Jack Campbell instructs her to assign. And sadly, the video shows the court appointed attorney for Mr. Williams seemingly not wanting to have any part of the case. The attorney tells Fulford (the court) that he is registered with the state to represent only capital cases (Mr. Williams’ case was not a capital case). Then when nobody objects—not even Thomas’ court appointed Regional Conflict Counsel Daren Shippy, the attorney goes on to tell Fulford that he won’t be in town on the days in which Mr. Williams may need an attorney (the days of the trial in that Mr. Williams was to testify as a witness), yet and still that did not stop Fulford from appointing the attorney. Why? Because Assistant State Attorney/Prosecutor Jack Campbell instructed her to do so.

(Imagine all judges in the United States being told how to run their courtroom by their local District/ State Attorneys/Prosecutors. Now imagine not being able to afford to take your family on a three day vacation because you don’t have the money.)

According to a recent article in the Miami Herald by Mary Ellen Klas entitled, “The Cannibalizing of Florida’s Prison System, she states, “Unlike the state-run prisons, the contracts with the private companies guarantee them a 90 percent occupancy rate, pay them per inmate, per day, and allow them to charge more for extra services and programs.”

In the State of Florida, where public schools are closing down left and right. Teachers’ morale is down and has been down for years. The State of Florida cannot guarantee parents that 90 percent of their child’s FCAT scores will be recorded properly, but they can guarantee private prisons 90 percent occupancy rate. Is this unbalanced priority the infrastructure of Florida’s ‘School to Prison Pipeline’? Governor Scott pushes ‘Let’s Get To Work’—Yeah, put the parents to work while the children are failing in school and judges and state attorneys are blatantly violating the rights of children—charging them as adults–in order to guarantee 90 percent occupancy in private prisons. It’s no wonder why Circuit Judge James C. Hankinson and Second Judicial State Attorney Willie Meggs are PREDATORS AT LARGE!

Taxpayers don’t win if they don’t extract corrupt officials from their government.

On November 5, 2014, thanks to RepresentUs, a Massachusetts based organization, the city of Tallahassee became the first city in the United States to enact an Anti-Corruption Amendment to stamp out corruption in their local government via the ballot box. The citizens of Tallahassee passed the amendment by an overwhelming vote of sixty-seven percent (67%).

Taxpayers don’t win if they don’t extract corrupt officials from their government.

Not Just Ferguson, Missouri: Florida’s First Judicial District–Second Judicial Circuit –Funding for Florida’s Prison System is a Far Cry From a ‘Charitable’ Organization—Senator Don Gaetz

Published March 4, 2015 by MAUL10

Tallahassee, FL—Recently the Miami Herald published an article titled, ‘The ‘cannibalizing’ of Florida’s Prison System,’ by writer Mary Ellen Klas. The article outlines how Florida prison system became so dysfunctional. In the article, Florida Senator Don Gaetz, a Niceville Republican, is said to have ‘pushed to privatize state prisons, acknowledges prison funding is not politically popular.’ In addition, Senator Gaetz, is quoted to have said, “It’s awfully hard to advocate for more money for prisons. They’re not my favorite charity. It’s not going to get you any votes, but it is a government responsibility to put bad people away.” “They’re not my favorite charity.” “…but it is a government responsibility to put bad people away” There are thousands of men and women who work for Florida’s Jails and Prison System. Most of these men and women go through extensive training both physically and mentally in order to perform their jobs. Part of their correctional officer training consists of keeping themselves, their co-workers and inmates safe in a sometimes dangerous and chaotic—and most recently reported to the public—a deteriorating environment. Some of these correctional officers have notified the public of their fear for their lives and fear of losing their jobs due to their knowledge of abuse against inmates. Surely, correctional officers and their family members—who every day have to wonder whether or not if their loved one is going to make it home from work—don’t see the use of the word ‘charity’ as a means of providing a safe and healthy work environment. In 2008, when Senator Don Gaetz 26-year-old son, Matt Gaetz was charged with Driving Under Influence, the law enforcement officer who stopped Matt Gaetz did not do so believing that he was going to possibly send a “bad person” to a ‘charitable’ organization. The law enforcement officer was doing his job. It was reported at the time of Matt Gaetz being pulled over, he was driving his dad’s BMW. While Senator Don Gaetz may have seen allowing his son to drive his BMW as a charity (let’s face it—no one working for a Florida Prison is driving a BMW)—the use of the word ‘charity’ when discussing a financial obligation to provide a safe work environment just underscores the distorted perspective that government officials in Florida suffer when it comes to doing the right thing. The law enforcement officers who processed Mr. Matt Gaetz should be applauded for exercising their training—they just may have saved his life and the lives of others. There are a lot of people who don’t have political connections that are housed in Florida Prisons who have unintentionally caused the death of a family member or members, or a close friend or friends, or a stranger or strangers—while driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. In 2014, Tampa Bay Times published an article, ‘Lawmaker’s talk of mug shot raises questions about DUI arrest,’ written by Michael Van Sickler. In the article, Rep. Matt Gaetz, who is a lawyer and now a state representative is quoted to have said, “I made bad decisions that resulted in an arrest, and that is sort of something that we all live with.” Many Floridians believe that Rep. Matt Gaetz political connections are what helped prevent him from being convicted—Rep. Matt Gaetz bad decision that resulted in his arrest made him a bad person—that night. “…something that we all live with.” In 2002, then Governor Jeb Bush and his wife, Columba, were forced to repeatedly endure their 25-year-old daughter, Noelle, commit one criminal act after another. Noelle was charged with trying to buy drugs with a fraudulent prescription and it was reported that Noelle had possession of crack cocaine while she was in a drug treatment center. Eventually Noelle had to spend 10 days in jail. Jail facilities are steps toward prison facilities. Unlike Rep. Matt Gaetz and Noelle, some people who go through jails are completely INNOCENT. The only bad decision that they made was putting trust in the judicial system. It not always guilt that sends people to prison—it’s more like people who lack political connections. Not all inmates or members of their families are looking for charity from Florida government officials. In most cases, the only request that they have of Florida government officials is to uphold Florida Sunshine Laws and the United States Constitution. It’s unfortunate that such simple requests from defendants/inmates and their family members seems so simple, yet government officials struggle to abide by the requests and then struggle and complain about the government’s financial obligations to render it safe for inmates and correctional officers. Once again, according to the Miami Herald article, it states, “The prisons run by private companies have contracts that guarantee them a ninety (90) percent occupancy rate, pay them per inmate, per day, and allow them to charge more for extra services and programs. Two private-run Blackwater River Correctional Facilities in Santa Rosa County and Graceville Correctional in Jackson County.” (Note: these two facilities are located in Florida’s panhandle.) In the DUI case against Rep. Matt Gaetz, as Tampa Bay Times states, “…the prosecutor asked to be taken off of the case because his stepson was a friend of Matt Gaetz.” Fast-forward a few years, move over to a neighboring judicial circuit in the panhandle—to the Second Judicial Circuit—and a ninety percent occupancy rate in two prisons in Florida’s panhandle could be like a walk in the park for Second Circuit State Attorney Willie Meggs and his assistant state attorneys who operate in Tallahassee—Leon County. Second Circuit State Attorney Willie Meggs is responsible for six counties all located in Florida’s panhandle. Seemingly, over the years, State Attorney Willie Meggs doesn’t bat an eye when it comes to assigning his protégé, Assistant State Attorney John “Jack” Campbell to prosecute criminal cases that his father, Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell has investigating jurisdiction. Many of Sheriff Larry Campbell (recently deceased) has deputies who are about in the same forty-year-old age range as Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell. Without a doubt, these deputies feel obligated to abide by Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell’s playbook—even it means smuggling contraband into the Leon County Jail—a jail that he father was elected to oversee for over fifteen years. Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell used a number of Leon County Sheriff’s Office employee as witnesses. A defendant’s defense attorney wouldn’t dare introduce professional witnesses to refute the testimonies of Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell’s witnesses—nor the medical examiner’s testimony—even when it was clear that the medical examiner was committing perjury. SN: Imagine this—a Florida government employee can lose his or her job for selling Girl Scout Cookies while on the job—while a Leon County Sheriff’s Deputy can get a promotion for committing perjury in order for Willie Meggs’ Assistant State Attorneys to win convictions. Now back to reality—this is not imaginary—Leon County Sheriff Larry Campbell used a family friend as a Leon County Sheriff’s Detective—as a lead detective in their Violent Crimes Unit. This family friend, Don Odham, has a history of unethical behavior. In addition, Mr. Odham executed search warrants on teenagers (minors) outside of the presence of their parents. There are legal documents filed with the Leon County Clerk’s Office identifying Mr. Odham as a Leon County Sheriff’s Detective—a seemingly common practice in order to gain the conviction of defendants who were facing charges being investigated by the Leon County Sheriff’s Office. Mr. Odham was also allowed to testify before jurors. All of this clearly known by the Public Defender’s Office, as well as counsel with the Regional Counsel’s Office, who chose not to conduct depositions of witnesses—and presenting an impromptu trial. A complete disrespect to not just the judicial system but to everyone—every wrongful conviction leaves the real criminal in the community. Forget a guaranteed ninety (90) percent occupancy rate—with Willie Meggs’ method of operation—with Willie Meggs’ oversight of six counties—with the assistance of the Public Defender’s Office, the Regional Counsel’s Office and the circuit judges being told what to do by Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell—a guaranteed one hundred (100) percent occupancy rate could be possible. In Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell’s own words, “I’ve instructed judges to appoint certain attorneys on cases.” SN: Imagine what Florida’s Prison System would look like if every circuit judge followed the instructions of Assistant State Attorney prosecuting cases—specifically instructing circuit judges what attorneys to assign to indigent clients. (A guaranteed one hundred (100) percent occupancy rate. Now that’s charity!) In January 2011, “Detective” Don Odham violated numerous Civil Rights of 17-year-old DeShon Thomas and DeShon’s mother inside of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office. “Detective” Don Odham and Assistant State Attorney teamed up to charge DeShon with Two Counts of 1st Degree Murder. Because no other Leon County Sheriff’s Detective would support Mr. Odham’s probable cause which prompted DeShon being charged with the murders, Mr. Odham, who had never been deposed, was forced to testify during DeShon’s trial. It was at that time when DeShon and his mother learned that Mr. Odham was not an official member of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office. Mr. Odham did not have the credential to be a detective. Mr. Odham was merely a local businessman—a family friend of the Campbell’s—with so much time on his hands that he assumed the role of a detective. Mr. Odham was by all means an IMPOSTER with the authorization of government officials. (This website further outlines the different events that led up to DeShon being convicted—WRONGLY CONVICTED.) Not just government officials and law enforcement officers in Ferguson, Missouri… Florida’s government officials need to change their perspective—starting with guaranteeing any prison facility an occupancy rate. Just maybe Rep. Matt Gaetz and his dad, Senator Don Gaetz could work on prison reform. After all, Rep. Matt Gaetz is quoted as to having said what many people in prison say all of the time, “I made bad decisions that resulted in an arrest, and that is sort of something that we all live with.” Show some respect—it should be all about respect for one another—providing a safe, not cozy place—whether it’s a work environment, the place of an unfortunate inmate, or the place where an inmate needs to be—Florida’s Prison System is a far cry from a charitable organization.

PARENTS BE AWARE: WHERE ARE FLORIDA’S MEDICAL EXAMINERS? ARE THEY WORTHLESS TO LAW ENFORCEMENT? #BlackLivesMatter #AllLivesMatter

Published February 19, 2015 by MAUL10

Tallahassee, FL—During the mid-morning hours, on January 27, 2011, Dr. Anthony J. Clark with the District Two Medical Examiner’s Office is On-Call. Dr. Clark gets a call from Leon County Sheriff Lieutenant Tim Baxter in regards to a double homicide where the victims have been shot. The victims are brother and sister. The mother of the victims’ told law enforcement that she returned home from spending the night out and found her 17-year-old son and her pregnant daughter, who is 20-years-old, dead in the livingroom. The mother goes on to tell law enforcement that she last saw her daughter alive the previous night (26th) around 9:30 p.m. at the residence but that her son was not home at the time. Dr. Clark does not come to the crime scene. (There is no entry on the Control Entry Log Sheet of anyone with the District Two Medical Examiner’s Office having gone out to the crime scene.)

In cases of suspicious death, investigators and police bring in a medical examiner to help search for clues as to how the person died and ultimately identify the killer. Medical examiners also work outside of suspicious deaths and murder cases, examining remains of people who died of natural or accidental causes. Medical examiners hold medical degrees and receive their positions by appointment, whereas coroners do not have to have medical degrees and act as elected officials.

According to Dr. Clark’s testimony, he did not come into contact with the victims’ bodies until the next day (morning). Therefore, it is Dr. Clark’s testimony that he could not give an approximate time of death—only that the victims had been deceased within 24 hours of him coming in contact with the bodies.

HOW DOES DR. ANTHONY J. CLARK’S TESTIMONY HELP LAW ENFORCEMENT AS THEY SET OUT TO ESTABLISH A TIMELINE OF EVENTS LEADING UP TO THE VICTIMS DEATHS?

The murder investigation of seventeen-year-old Sterling Conner Jr. and his 20-year-old sister Laqecia Herring was a sham. Instead of law enforcement officers, both defense and prosecuting attorneys, judges and the medical examiner’s office utilizing their professional experience to ensure justice is carried out properly, they dummied themselves down to cover up several dumb actions that they seemingly have become so accustomed to that the person that was charged with the murders, 17-year-old DeShon Thomas, filed Pro Se because for nearly three years of him sitting in the Leon County Jail none of the four different court appointed attorneys would do the least to build a legal defense—no depositions—nothing. It’s too bad that most of those who are sworn to protect DeShon’s Constitutional Rights were more interested in their own pathetic agendas within their network—the State Attorneys Office refused to allow the victims autopsy reports to be released–and defense counsel refused DeShon’s mother’s offer to hire a private investigator to assist on DeShon’s case—then refused to retain professionals to refute Dr. Clark’s testimony. Dr. Clark’s testimony is either him dummying himself down—far, far away from his M.I.T. background or him failing to recognize how far science—the study of pathology and everything else about forensic pathology—has advanced. All factors combined is another reason to show that what Tallahassee currently has in place may not be ready for 21st Century Policing.
