Tuesday was a unique day. There were multiple serious crimes going on and Morgan holds a press conference on a cyberstalker. What?
While I understand the cyberstalker may have harassed people and made them uncomfortable, does that really compare to the stabbing, shooting and bank robbery happening in real time?
This is a perpetuation of Chief Haines's trolling on social media to tattle tale on deputies instead of focusing on the rising crime rate. Hello!!! There are things that are happening IN THE community that they seem to not see.
This reminds me of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia. He is told that people are storming the palace and he tosses the telegram because it's time for tea. Eventually the people, who he never really saw, were his demise.
This is an example of the disconnect of the administration (Morgan & Simmons). Or this could be blatant manipulation. Morgan parades a non-violent criminal around who a fairly new criminal enterprise. He makes sure not to acknowledge the violent crime that plagues the community. In the 40's, this tactic was used as propaganda tool by Hitler. He played news stories of the German wins, when in reality, they were defeats. Is this really the kind of community people want to live in?
The reason the local news doesn't cover this goes back to the "Witch" murders in 2015. Sir David was ambushed by a reporter in the ECSO.
He was from WKRG channel 5, but despite that fact, Morgan believed the news director, Kim Wyatt, put this man up to the aggressive tactic of following Morgan through the ECSO and outside despite the fact Morgan dismissed him. This doesn't show Morgan in a good light and he lashed out
According to sources close to the situation, Morgan's ire at Ms. Wyatt had him assign a plain clothed deputy (who recently got promoted) to follow Ms. Wyatt. He then called the GM of WEAR and asked if he knew where Ms. Wyatt was, because he did. This is the epitome of coercion. Since then Channel 3 has not made any attempts to portray Morgan in a "tainted light". Morgan strong-armed the GM and stalked the news director over a perception of a situation that may or may not have been true.
How is this "momentum"? Is this the Escambia County of the future? A community where this severity and frequency of crime is the norm and a thug controlling other thugs for his own personal agenda.....but hey who cares....he talks a good talk.
