Are Florida’s #DAVID contracts like #Aramark’s?

After sending the email below, I sent Tweets reminding Rick Scott, Will Weatherford and Joe Negron that the questions I’ve posed aren’t rhetorical. Shortly thereafter, I received a perplexing email from Ms. Taylor that alleges I will somehow know the outcome of an investigation of DAVID before she does. Her words: “Please advise me of the results of the investigation … ”

Dear Ms. Taylor,

As you know from simultaneous receipt of my correspondence to Patrick Lineberry on April 25th (below), I am awaiting a response from Governor Scott, Senate President Gaetz, House Speaker Weatherford, Senator Negron and Representative Lee as to how it is that searching four years of computerized DAVID records could possibly take longer than a few seconds, let alone longer than a half hour, without DAVID being either outdated upon inception or improperly maintained.

Raising the issue of whether DAVID serves Floridians or fleeces them is little different than my raising the issue with the predecessors of the above elected officials – years ago – of granting Aramark a new contract for prison food after it failed to meet the conditions of its previous contact, and dangerously sickened a great number of prisoners with its swill.

Potential abuse of DAVID and Stringray are not the only concerns I have more recently taken up with the parties that I have Cc:d; some of them are addressed in the Baltimore Post Examiner link below. Far and away, the greatest concern I’ve addressed is the continued incarceration of innocents and related public corruption, which dates back to electronic correspondence of record to then-Governor Jeb Bush.

Since April 25, I have learned that – not long ago – DAVID records were available back to its implementation, @2001. I have also learned that Stingray records are not available from the Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. It is not fitting that questions I pose of public servants are ignored by them, and answered instead by other private citizens. And it is patently ridiculous for public servants to continually skew email trails with pretended non-receipt of relevant emails.

If DAVID worked properly, it wouldn’t be worth the state’s time to bill for the few seconds it would take to search any individual’s records. I await an explanation; taxation without representation is wearing very, very thin.

Dear Mr. Lineberry,

Thank you for your prompt, puzzling, partial response, which apparently was of interest to an inordinate number of your coworkers, to whom I’m simultaneously sending this email.

Please note that I additionally inquired about Stingray public records. Please note, too, that none of the information that WPTV5 provided to the public – from the email address to use to request DAVID records to the cost of those records – was correct.

Logically – given that records only go back four years – the only way that a mere 50 requests for computerized DAVID records could be deemed as inundation of your office is if DAVID was hopelessly outdated when implemented – further evidenced by your indicating that a search of a mere four years of data could take more than a half hour to search when most computer programs can search decades in seconds. This calls into question all contracts for DAVID’s implementation and maintenance.

Costs of abusing DAVID should not be borne by Floridians, but by the abusers themselves … and I do not mean by the state or local agencies that employ the individual abusers (which taxpayers fund); I mean the actual, individual abusers, who identify themselves to log in.

For these reasons, I have copied the governor’s office, the senate president, the house speaker and my legislative representatives, as it is their responsibility to ensure that legislation is fair rather than oppressive and enforced rather than ignored, their responsibility to ensure that citizens do not become unwitting targets of unwarranted domestic surveillance, their responsibility to ensure that taxpayers do not foot the bill for any computerized system that is outdated when implemented and increasingly dysfunctional, their responsibility to ensure that taxpayers don’t pay for public servants to use state equipment for spurious personal reasons. It is not only Florida’s Constitution that they are obliged to uphold, it is the U.S. Constitution, as well.

In addition to soliciting their firm and immediate support for having individual DAVID and/or Stringray abusers “pay to play” from their very own pockets as well as face reprimand or termination (depending on the extent of the abuse), I am seeking an investigation of DAVID’s apparently-present-upon-implementation shortcomings, and forthright disclosure of whether any federal funds were used to implement and/or maintain DAVID and Stringray.

I am a law-abiding citizen, and have not had so much as a traffic ticket since the early 1970’s. Obviously, failure to come to a complete stop a stop sign decades ago did not give any Florida public servant with access to DAVID or Stingray just cause to waste my tax dollars to look me up on either system.

Attorney General’s Pam Bondi’s contrary position is another example of her protecting lawless public servants ahead of the public they abuse, preceded by her broken campaign promise to investigate convictions achieved via the perjuries of DNA (and otherwise) discredited dog handler John Preston, of which there are scores. Investigations of Preston convictions would have relieved me of related public corruption I’ve endured since 2001 … and freed incarcerated innocents, including Gary Bennett.

As I have already received a request for $19.08 from Ms. Taylor, I ask that the Florida legislators and governor’s office immediately get their ducks in a row on DAVID and Stringray and respond rapidly. Thank you.
