“My personal goal is to exceed Sheriff Parker’s expectation of me,” Ivey said during his speech. “It’s a tall mountain.”
It seems to me that the only way that Ivey could meet his personal goal to exceed Parker’s expectations of him would be to personally take the stand and commit perjuries to tighten Brevard’s frame-ups, not all of which involve discredited dog handler John Preston’s perjuries (like Gary Bennett’s now 29-year-old frame-up does), and not all of which are from the previous century (Jeff Abramowski’s is 21st Century).
My correspondence to Sheriff Parker indicates his unwillingness to run unidentified prints from a Cocoa gas station homicide despite there being two unsolved Cocoa gas station homicides. It also indicates Parker’s unwillingness to compare evidence from Pauline Scandale’s Canova Beach skull-crush homicide to James Dvorak’s Canova Beach skull-crush homicide, although Canova Beach is barely bigger than a breadbox.
All that and more has been addressed in previous blog posts; Parker clearly protected public servants ahead of the public, and Wayne Ivey was doing exactly the same thing in Brevard while employed by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. In fact, Parker was one of the public servants Ivey protected.
There’s an FBI field office in Brevard – under the jurisdiction of Tampa – that coulda/shoulda busted both Ivey and Parker, and busted FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey while they were at it.
But the Tampa FBI, of course, busied itself with Petraeus’ pants rather than investigating public corruption that affected trial outcomes, ignoring the FBI’s mandate.
Every corrupt public servant counts on every other public servant to play along, but it doesn’t always happen that way.
Sometimes, one will say “enough,” and speak up.
One such person is Lake County, Illinois Sheriff Mark Curran, who spoke up about prosecutor Mike Mermel’s corruption a year ago.
As a result of Curran’s courage, another incarcerated innocent – Bennie Starks – walked free this week.
Hat’s off to Sheriff Mark Curran.
