This came to me today.
Recently, there has been conversation about President Trump visiting our hometown. Having the POTUS visit your home is a big deal. It has always been considered an honor to be involved in the detail that provides security to the leader of the free world. It is an operation that law enforcement officers consider a privilege. It is a chance to be a part of something that is memorable and honorable. Not many people in the world can be tasked with the responsibility of protecting POTUS.
However, this visit is a bit different than the times I have experienced in the past. The President had been scheduled to visit Pensacola. The typical discussions would take place and plans made to give each agency the details of responsibility. All the law enforcement agencies would begin to plan as needed. The officers would be scheduled, and the plan would start to take form. Then……enter Morgan.
Even a self-mined political hack like Sir David Morgan would be reasonable enough to understand that this event is bigger than he is. If that was the conclusion you reached, you would be wrong. In fact, it would be absolute opposite of that conclusion. Morgan is the fly in the ointment again! This fool can avoid seeing that POTUS is coming to Pensacola for a purpose--a purpose that is likely to advance the agenda that he holds to improve the life of all Americans. When the self-absorbed sheriff can ignore that the President and turn the event into being about himself, it is a BIG DEAL!
Morgan made the decision to negotiate the terms that he will allow officers to provide protection to POTUS. In this mind-blowing thought process, he believed that he should sing the anthem and be provided time to address the audience. I know…. right? None of this included considering law enforcement function, which would have been the intent of the detail nor any thought of how best to accomplish the mutual agency cooperation and goals that are already in place. No consideration was given to better work with the Secret Service for a successful event. This fool believed he had the right to demand payoff for simply doing his job. He essentially is attempted to be paid with favors for being the Sheriff and tried to extort the President. This man never fails to shock the community with his ignorance.
This circus act is just another day at the office. Cops realize that it isn’t a joke to be viewed as fools. It makes me sick to my stomach to watch the agency fall into the shame of the everyone because of egos. Morgan has recently admitted under oath that he isn’t a certified law enforcement officer. So why when he makes a mockery of an agency that --until his arrival--- had respect from the community, does nothing get reported except in independent blogs? He routinely allows or ignores the hate spewing attacks of Eric Haines to be allowed in any public forum. There appears to be no expectation of honesty being that Haines reported the ECSO was involved just like past Presidential details. This is an absolute lie. We were made aware after investigations was told they were not needed. The understanding that most have is a couple of staff members showed up and 6 or 8 from SWAT members were at the hotel. Really Eric? I find it appalling that you can judge others so vocally and lie publicly. Pathetic and predictable.
Please don’t allow "The Diva" some call Sheriff to cause the officers to be viewed as the same mental midget that Morgan is. Good cops want to do the right thing. The public only sees the antics of a man-child playing dress up. All his underlings have exceeded any expectation they, or anyone else, had for their life. His staff proves that a history of beating your spouse or shooting at your spouse is somehow useful experience. You can be a drunk and sleep with coworkers. Avoid following the path of testing and proving you are qualified. Vacate any of the integrity that you could have. Disregard that one day your child could discover you were a fake and stood for nothing. Completely bow to the honor of being blessed with the presence of Sir David Morgan. That is how you survive the Morgan administration. The cops haven’t done that. Cops are still the guys and girls in the patrol cars patrolling your neighborhoods while you sleep. The same ones that hold their head not so high. They feel the embarrassment for a man who would never be embarrassed because he doesn’t know what to be embarrassed about. He is certain that the way he does business is exactly like Miami Vice, but the cops with day to day contact with the public do know to be embarrassed. They have integrity and can spot a fraud. Morgan should realize that real cops will stay the course. In the end, he is exposed and the cops win.
We owe President Trump an apology. I hope he understands that Pensacola is a great place to call home. We appreciate him noticing our home and taking time to visit. Our law enforcement would proudly perform the duties as expected when he visits. President Trump would understand we have our own swamp to drain. Soon I hope we see a change for the better and changes come. I think with that clown posse out of the ECSO we can get back to being proud of our home.
