But interestingly the Public Records Clerk, Jessica Clifton, is not the one responding. Instead, Lisa A. DiFranza, an Assistant State Attorney responds to the follow-up on behalf of Angela Corey.
Y’all know we are patient, very patient, but we are also relentless.
It took almost a year, and a painstaking methodical strategy, to get the Public Records from M-DSPD which revealed the truth behind Trayvon Martin’s history, and the illegal law enforcement diversionary practices which kept him from the Criminal Justice System.
One of the things we have learned (over time) is that when you are requesting these “risk records”, the public officials ‘at risk’ will easily lie. So, unfortunately, the strategy to actually get the records means you have to anticipate being lied to. You must know the truth of the existence of what you are seeking, before you actually request it.
If you do not know what exists, you are blinded to accept the less than truthful delivery of the information the deceivers are willing to provide. The deceptive Public Officials will NOT include the information that presents a risk to their careers.
Following the Zimmerman trial verdict, we again formulated a strategy to uncover the lies behind Special Prosecutor, Angela Corey, the prosecution strategy toward the Zimmerman case, and her team at the 4th District SAO in Jacksonville.
Make no mistake, by all appearances and given research into the Jacksonville history with Angela Corey at the helm, this is a very truth adverse State Attorney’s Office.
The strategy is almost identical to M-DSPD. Basically three fold. #1) Know what you are looking for before you begin. Which means face to face conversations with people in/around the issues, to confirm the existence of records. #2) Request the records with specificity which does not allow obfuscation or hidden information to remain undisclosed. #3) Let the receiving entity know that you will: a] jump through all their hoops, b] comply with all their *unlawful* instructions, and tactics for delay, yet… c] will not relent.
As with the M-DSPD experience, you can gauge the *risk* within the information based on who ends up answering questions when you submit follow-up status inquiry.
With that in mind, the latest communication from the 4th SAO to our inquiry has not been with the Clerk who handles the process fulfillment. The latest communication [excerpt below] comes from the Asst. State Attorney, Lisa A. DiFranza:
[…] This office diligently works to respond to each request in the order it was received as quickly as possible. We anticipate having the requested documents to you by tomorrow. If there are additional costs above the deposit amount, we will let you know.
If you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call.
Have a great day!
