Subject: Re: 2013 Black History Month Contests
Dear Governor Scott,
Again, you have forwarded electronic propaganda while ignoring another electronic plea to address Florida’s frame-ups. The subjects you chose to propagandize today are Black History and racial diversity, as they pertain to Florida’s educators and children.
Slain civil rights worker – and educator – Harry T. Moore is my hero. Florida Today writes a great deal about him so that Brevard’s children will know what to write in essays about Black History Month. Florida Today doesn’t write anything about Crosley Green, the victim of a “the black man did it” frame-up. Crosley still cannot change the length of his hair at will, nor can he change his physical size, despite police and prosecutors contrary claims. I’m aware of a closer-to-home “the black man did it” frame-up that the Press Journal should be writing about and isn’t – another black man incapable of changing the length of his hair or his physical size at will, despite police and prosecutors contrary claims. I['m] hoping that particular conviction gets cleared up in the near future, despite the Press Journal’s disinterest.
The Orlando Sentinel writes nothing about John Dobbs, who remains falsely incarcerated. The paper had initially reported that Dobbs’ unintentional slaying of one of many attackers in defending himself and his girlfriend as a homicide. John did not use the gun he took from one of the attackers, he instead defended himself with his legal-length pocket knife … while being sliced by a box-cutter and razor blade, thrown against his vehicle, punched, kicked, etc. Not only were all of John’s and his girlfriend’s wounds visible to cameras, the cameras made it clear that both John and his girlfriend are black. The Orlando Sentinel did not publish any of the pictures; they would have revealed the reporters for the liars they were for portraying a self-defense death as a homicide, and for portraying that supposed homicide as a supposed hate crime … against a black man. Four reporters in all involved in the story, none getting close to getting anything right other than the date and location.
Florida newspapers obviously don’t care if justice is available for black men, and they’re certainly not concerned whether they can vote, either. No Florida newspaper has taken you to task for trashing of Charlie Crist’s humane and inexpensive semi-automated felon rights restoration process, although the majority you are keeping from the polls are black and brown. A newspaper or two have mentioned it in passing, with no appropriate outrage over our being resoundingly fleeced to become America’s most Jim Crow state.
Between unavailable justice and suppressed votes alone, whatever Florida’s schoolchildren write in their essays about Black History Month won’t actually reflect Florida history; Florida’s real history is unpublished.
I previously cautioned you that sending me propaganda electronically while ignoring my electronic pleas to make justice available really isn’t in your best interests, and that your interests would be better served by making sure that Attorney General Bondi immediately follows through on her campaign promise to investigate all criminal investigations involving discredited dog handler John Preston … doing so would have led her from Brevard’s Gary Bennett to Brevard’s Crosley Green on to Orange’s Tommy Zeigler and John Dobbs, and to many, many others.
Your contacting me regarding “my interest in Florida’s children” offers me the opportunity to counter that were you genuinely interested in children, you would do whatever is necessary to ensure their physical safety.
For Florida’s children to be safe, innocents cannot serve the sentences of actual criminals, nor can the likes of Roger Dale Chapman get “walks” for helping to frame innocents. Chapman’s lies about William Dillon got him a walk on molesting a minor; he is currently incarcerated for running a shake’n'bake meth lab … and for molesting a minor. And I doubt that all of Chapman’s meth clients were adults.
Dead children don’t write essays. Perhaps some of the molested children and drug-addicted children write them, but I’m guessing most don’t.
Your PR portrays you as caring deeply about many things, but your actions indicate that you consider most Floridians exploitable and even expendable, including children. Whatever further nonsense you send, I’ll defeat on the record, while further substantiating your racism, elitism, predation and entrenched unwillingness to address Florida’s conviction corruption. I firmly believe there will soon come a time when governors like you will have far more to fear from our justice system than governors like Don Siegelman.
