Florida’s Facebook for Cops, Pam Bondi, and me. And Tommy Z, and Gary B.

To make a long story short, please skip to what I have highlighted in bold in the email to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, below.

Marriage equality, given its progress, is the least of the three concerns I highlighted. My uppermost concern is Bondi’s broken campaign promise to investigate all convictions involving charlatan dog handler John Preston, which may very well cost death row innocent William “Tommy” Zeigler his life, although Preston had nothing to do with Tommy’s case. Here’s why:

Florida’s 9th judicial circuit deployed a lurid lie against Tommy in a fraudulent (via officer Jimmy Yawn’s testimony) attempt to explain blood patterns. DNA tests destroyed the lie. 9th judicial circuit prosecuted recycled the lurid lie – with no purpose in mind – against Gary Bennett, a 18th judicial circuit case that the 9th was obliged to refuse transfer because of a triple taint: 1) then-Governor Bob Graham’s 1984 transfer of an “investigation” of John Preston’s activities in the 18th, despite widespread knowledge (officers, prosecutors, public defenders, media) that Preston had already been found a fraud and a perjurer by a federal court in 1982 in Dale Sutton’s exoneration; 2) the 9th’s use of Preston against Linroy Bottoson, with FBI participation; 3) then-US Senator Bob Graham’s 10 years of service on the Senate Intelligence Oversight Committee, during which he did not hold the FBI accountable for participating in public corruption that it was their job to investigate and expose (Linroy was executed in 2002, despite the credible, contrary testimony of an actual dog handler).

Executing Tommy will allow the destruction of evidence, which provides a rather detailed “Who’s Who in Florida Conviction Corruption.” Without Tommy’s case to turn to, Gary’s chances at freedom will be greatly diminished. This doesn’t seem to bother Gary’s defense attorneys – Centurion Ministries and the Innocence Project of Florida, but it might if their tax exempt status is called into question over this and what all else they’ve done to Gary, rather than for Gary.

How much did U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts know when he recently washed his hand’s of Tommy’s case, on the record? My guess is plenty. Perhaps as much (or more) as Pam Bondi. And Rick Scott.

Attorney General Pamela Bondi
The Capitol, Plaza Level One
400 South Monroe Street
Tallahassee, FL 32399-1050

Dear Attorney General Bondi,

Court after court across the country has found that there is no legal
basis to deny some Americans the dignity of marriage to the person he
or she loves, yet you continue to hold on to unfounded arguments to
legitimize a law that serves no purpose but to discriminate.

Judges appointed by Republicans and Democrats alike have 19 times in a
row come to the inescapable conclusion that such bans are wrong … and
constitutionally indefensible. Attorneys General in states across the
country have upheld their duty to the U.S. constitution by refusing to
defend a law that so clearly violates basic rights.

To quote U.S. District Judge Arenda L. Wright Allen, who ruled against
Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage, “We have arrived upon another
moment in history when ‘We the People’ becomes more inclusive, and our
freedom more perfect.”

Let us have our day in court. I want my Attorney General to be on the
right side of history and recognized the fact that 57% of our state
supports same-sex marriage.

I also want my Attorney General to be on the right side of history as
regards intact, knowingly wrongful convictions. You have not answered
my related correspondence, and I absolutely insist that you do, ma’am,
without further delay. It’s time to honor your campaign promise to
investigate all convictions achieved using charlatan dog handler John
Preston. You are similarly on the wrong side, historically, of
unwarranted domestic surveillance, of which I have been a target.

Please respond to all three issues in your reply. Thank you for your
time. [emphasis added, as previously noted in introduction]
