I think you are on the right track with stating your problems. I too have had the displeasure of dealing with Escambia County Sheriffs Office and their blatant disregard for the rights of individuals, as well as their abuse of power specifically (in my case) by a Deputy Robert Matthew Clark on 5/28/2009. The problems of ECSO run deep. When I got home after myself, my husband, 3 of my children, and 2 of my grandchildren were abused by the above mentioned officer I began to do some research into this fool's background. I wanted to know why an individual would think it was okay to shout profanities and demean a family, including the children, in the parking lot in a public area, and I found out that he treats his own wife and children this way. I found out that he has domestic violence charges against himself, has had two restraining orders placed against him, and at one point custody of his own child was given to his parents. How are the citizens of this county supposed to feel protected? I would be glad to help anyone start a petition, buy a billboard, something to stop the madness in this county with the very ones that have taken an oath to protect and serve.

Also, I would suggest that you stay in close contact with your son. When I had the displeasure of being in the booking area, waiting for my husband to post my bail, the deputy or clerk or whatever she was told me not to look at her because I was making her nervous. Then I sat in the "wrong chair" after being told to sit down by this same clerk and she sent another deputy/clerk over to me and told me that I had to go into the "holding tank", when I asked why she said "because I don't like the way you're looking at me". I was not looking at her, but the point is when you are in there they evidently feel like they can treat you any way they choose. I tried to report the information to the Sergeant on duty and he said he would look at the videos and walked away. Then another sergeant came up to me to walk me out after my husband posted my bail and he began asking me about the situation I was complaining about, so I was telling him and he just kept making excuses for the behavior of the 2 women. I told him no matter what he said there is no excuse for an individual to be treated with such disrespect and torment. When I would not accept any of his excuses, he said "what do you want us to do spank her". I simply said that is the uneducated, ascinine mind set of ESCO and then I walked away. As he was giving me a piece of paper with the court date, I asked the woman for her name and she absolutely refused to give it to me and then he shouted "if you want to blame someone, blame me and he gave me his name". There is no justice in that close minded, uneducated system but that needs to change. I can definitely understand your concern for your son's safety and well being. It is a valid concern and you should do everything possible to make some noise and let others know. Visit your son as often as possible to check on his safety/well being.

Judge Frank Bell...anyone have any cases about him where he refuses to grant a Motion To Suppress Evidence collected by officers due to wrongful arrests? I go to the law library every week and if I had exact case numbers it would help me.
ALso, in court last week Judge Jan Shackelford refused to allow our hired attorney, P. Cashwell to take over our sons case. Sixth ammendment violation. Ms. Cashwell is still working on his case untill this judge comes to her senses.

I also have had threats from cars 154 & 300. I also have had my home illegally searched by officer R. A. Simpson. My record is clean. The profanity & threats these officers are using just makes lawabiding citizens not trust any of them!!!

As one of the deputies told me (Make a complaint alot of good it will do you) Someone is teaching them what they can get away with.Possibly a superviser?

I have recently experienced life at the hands of Escambia County Deputies and Personnel. I am an upstanding, tax paying citizen of Escambia County and have been for the last 25 years. I have always respected the law and tried my very hardest to respect the law enforcement officers in ECSO, despite some of the ignorant things they have been shown doing. However, after my experience with one of our finest I have no respect for the law enforcement officers of ECSO. I was falsely arrested, manhandled, and verbally assaulted by one of ECSO's deputies. I want everyone to know what goes on behind the doors at ECSO because it is an injustice and disgrace. My husband, my daughters (14, 15,and 17 years old) and two of my grandchildren (3 and 5) had to witness this particular deputy behave in such a manner that I can not even begin to figure out a way to give them an answer when they ask "why Mom?". I have always taught my children to obey the law and to respect law enforcement officers. But after today my children ask how are they supposed to respect an officer who stands in front of them shouting profanities, pointing his fingers in their fathers face while being so close that his spit was all in his face, and running back and forth across a parking lot screaming and arguing with them, again a 17, 16, 15, 5, and 3 year old. I mean who really does this? Not a police officer, not a man of authority, not a man carrying a badge, not a man carrying a firearm, not a man you want your children to listen to, and certainly not a man you want your children to respect. His behavior was out of control. He was insultive, presumptive, and obviously uneducated. The entire time he was ranting and raving in front of my children, myself, and my husband I thought to myself okay this fool must not have a wife or kids, because surely he would show a great deal more respect. Come to find out the arrogant fool of a deputy has a wife and two young children. I wonder how he treats them. Hopefully, he shows a little more professionalism at being a husband and father than he does at being an Escambia County Sheriff's Deputy. I hope that once we file our complaint with Internal Affairs or whomever will listen that Sheriff David Morgan will realize that one of the "good ol boy mentalities" is still left under his command. I know that these officers do not get paid much and are extremely uneducated, but that is no excuse for someone you are supposed to trust and admire to behave in such a despicable manner.

Last year I had to kick my husband out because he became irrational and abusive. My husband kept calling with violent threates and I was TERRIFIED for my life and my childrens life. I called Escambia county police to have them just escort me to another location. They came. It was raining. I told them I would be very fast getting things together. The Male cop told me "where you better hurry up because we a'int gonna stand here in the rain all day waiting on you!" I ignored that and got my stuff together. Came out of house and male cop tells me "now listen! Call us if he comes back BUT DO NOT CALL UNLESS IT'S AN EMERGENC....." I was so livid at this point because I was TERRIFIED for my life and this male and female cop were laughing and stuff and checking their watches, and had banged on my door 3 timnes in the span of 3 minutes while I had been getting my thing!! So I didn't let him finish. I started yelling at him , tears streaming down my face and told him "you listen! If this wasn't an emergency I wouldn't have called you! I know my husabnd been with him 14 years! Your supposed to protect me NOT act as if this is some trivial matter!" the woman cop yells back at me "HEY maa'm, then LEAVE HIM!" i YELLED BACK "WHAT THE HELL YOU THINK I'M TRYING TO DO HERE?!!!!"

The Escambia County deputies are hands down the most uneducated individuals I have ever met in my life. Especially to be calling themselves "professionals". It is because of that type of law enforcement mentality that we have such an enormous amount of domestic violence. Citizens, particularly women, are asking for the deputies who have taken an oath to "protect and serve" to actually comply with that oath and they make the citizens feel like they are an imposition.

I moved here 6 years ago and the first thing
that happened is cop cars would follow my
car all the way to town everytime I got on
29. It became obvious that they wanted to
ticket the woman in the sports car.

Just before thanksgiving it started all over
again, and when the first day it happened
the officer actually got tired of following
or he couldn't take the time anymore or go
out of his district, who knows, but before
he pulled off he pulled up beside me and
tried to ram me!!!!!

Swear to God! I could not believe it!
I have been having trouble with the hunters
in this area for 6 years, and it was the
first days of hunting season, and it is
this girls belief that this cop was friends
of the hunters and when they went hunting
they talked about the woman with the expensive
car and the cop said I'll fix her, so for three
days he chased me to town. Which the hunters
had been doing for about 2 months now. He did
that for three days straight. Then all of a
sudden there were tons of cops all over 29,
I'm sure it was part of the grant that was
given to clean up the town. But not the first
three days, he was the only one there, and he
sat there and waited till I came by like I
do at that time everyday, and he came out
everytime and followed close behind me to
town.

Miss use of power.

But if you want a cop in this town just call
Gee Willies on 29, or Denny's on Mobile Hwy.
There were three cops all night at Dennys
on Mobile Hwy Sunday Night, just ask any
of the employees that were on.

No wonder our murders go unsolved.

What a bunch of losers.

I have no doubt this crappy cop would just
say he must of accidently swerved into my
lane, or it just didn't happen at all.

But He and I both know the real story,
and he is a dirty low down snake and thats
all their is to it! I would be willing
to take a lie detector test on it. I bet
he wouldn't, I just wouldn't take it in this
town, the corruption here runs all the way
to the top.

I have no respect for the escambia sheriffs
department or the police here, it is
my believe that they are just as crooked
as all the other ppl in charge here.

I think you give these guys a badge and
a gun here and they think their above the
law.

Everyone knows that any man who bullies
a woman is just a low down COWARD!

Honestly, I have no doubt in my mind that this happened. I wish there was a way that more people in Pensacola could be informed about the supposed 'law enforcement' in this county. The deputies do what they want and the citizens of Escambia County pay for it monetarily and emotionally. It is wrong, but I am at a loss of what to do. Maybe if we all go around with a camcorder and start spreading their ignorant actions all over the news via video, but who has time for that.

I would not doubt that you are being stalked by some of the deputies as I know many that have been in office a long time are big time hunters. Our Ex-Sheriff was in the news not that long ago for hunting illeagally in another state. And yes some of them do what ever they want. Our new sheriff stays in hiding more than in touch with the people. The statistics on the west side of Pensacola that he said he was going to clean up are not accurate if the deputies refuse to make reports. Write down dates, times, & car numbers before something happens.

Yeah, I have been in there once. I was arrested Feb 13, 2009 for a battery charge as a result of a mental afflicition. The deputies that came completely manhandled me even though I never resisted them at all was trying to submit to prevent further problems. The main jail which many of us call "Castle Greyskull" smells horrible once you go to the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 6th floors on the Phase 1 side. All floors on Phase 2 stick to no end. I have never before seen so many cases of staph in my life. It usually takes 2 weeks for an inmate to see a doctor. Heck, the deputies even beat down an old man there who was mouthing off because he needed immediate medical attention. The Goon Squad lead by Driver and Watson warned the rest of us to keep silent. The old man died and the news reported it as a heart attack. The food there is horrid. For breakfast you get to eat artifical eggs and the amount fits in the palm of your hand, a layer of grits and a couple of pieces of bread. Lunch is a sandwich pack, 1 meat sandwich, 1 peanut butter sandwich and 2 cookies. Dinner is always horrible. It is usually a form of goolash(sp?).

The air is always frigid there no matter the season and they say it is to lessen the amount of diseases. Nope, it's to keep inmates in their bunks so they won't have to worry about them. So much evil there and not just from the inmates. The correctial officers can be worse than any inmate there. Sad to say, the state will never do anything about it. We had some feds come through investigating and the C.O.s gave us some new cheap board games and cards. Anytime when the feds come is when they decide to clean up the jail. Other than that.... Escambia County Jail is a cess pool and a den of iniquity.
