LET'S PLAY BALL!

The following was written by employees of the Florida DOC in Oct 2002.  I cannot vouch for the contents, nor reveal my sources.  However, I can tell you that the information about the seriousness of the  DOC's involvement in sports, money spent on the teams, favors given to the players, and to what lengths they go to recruit support is not coming from prisoners nor their families.  These reports are coming in from a variety of employees in different Florida prisons throughout the various regions.  Enjoy.......  Kay Lee


I WISH TO INFORM YOU OF SEVERAL EVENTS THAT HAVE
TAKEN PLACE
AT FLORIDA STATE PRISON RECENTLY. 

"THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS VERIFIABLE AND IS FACT NOT RUMOR."

1.  SGT. OSCAR SHIPLEY AND SGT. MARCUS HODGES (WHOSE REAL NAME IS MARCUS STARLING) HAVE BEEN POACHING DEER ON STATE PROPERTY WITH STATE WEAPONS AND STORING THE MEAT IN A STATE B.O.Q. (BACHELOR LIVING QUARTERS), AND LATER SELLING THE WILD GAME TO INDIVIDUALS AND GIVING PART OF THE PROFIT TO COLONEL A.C. CLARK.

2. SGT. MARCUS HODGES HAD HIS NAME CHANGED FROM MARCUS STARLING BECAUSE HE SERVED A YEAR AND A DAY IN THE CORRECTION SYSTEM IN NORTH CAROLINA FOR GROWING MARIJUANA WITH HIS RELATIVES.

3. COLONEL A.C. CLARK HAS HIRED PROFESSIONAL SOFT BALL PLAYERS RIGHT OFF OF THE STREET WITH SUPPOSED SIGN ON BONUSES AND PUT THEM IN A BROWN UNIFORM AND PUT THEM ON THE ADMIN SHIFT IN RETURN FOR THEM TO PLAY SOFTBALL.

4. COLONEL A.C. CLARK HAS PRESSURED STAFF THAT WORK AT FLORIDA STATE PRISON, TO SUPPORT HIM, MEANING ("I SUPPORT JEB BUSH AND IF YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR DAYS OFF AND POSSIBLY GET PROMOTED ONE DAY, YOU NEED TO SUPPORT JEB BUSH AS WELL.")

5. COLONEL A.C. CLARK WAS ASKED BY AN OFFICER AT FLORIDA STATE PRISON WHAT HE HAD TO DO TO GET PROMOTED AND COLONEL A.C. CLARK REPLIED "ARE YOU GOING TO THE JEB BUSH RALLY IN CLAY COUNTY?"  AND THE OFFICER STATED TO HIM "I WASN'T PLANNING ON IT BUT I WILL GO TO SUPPORT YOU COLONEL."

6. 50/50 TICKETS HAVE BEEN SOLD THIS PAST YEAR AT FLORIDA STATE PRISON IN HOPES FOR THE COLONEL TO RAISE MONEY FOR HIS F.S.P. SOFTBALL TEAM.

EXTREME PRESSURE WAS PUT ON STAFF TO PURCHASE THESE HOME MADE TICKETS THAT WERE MADE ON STATE TIME WITH STATE MONEY.

EXAMPLE:  A LT. OR CAPT. OR SGT. WOULD COME DOWN THE HALL WAY AND ASK YOU TO BUY A TICKET FOR THE SOFT BALL TEAM, AND IF YOU SAID YOU DIDN'T HAVE ANY MONEY THEY WOULD  REPLY BY SAYING " WHAT DAYS OFF DO YOU HAVE?"  MEANING IF YOU DON'T WANT TO LOSE THOSE FRIDAYS AND SATURDAYS OFF, YOU NEED TO BUY SOME TICKETS.

SGT. CHRIS EDDINS WAS ON STATE TIME IN THE CONTROL ROOM TAKING NAMES OF INDIVIDUALS WHO BOUGHT 50/50 TICKETS AND WHO ATTENDED THE RALLY'S AND COLONEL CLARK'S PARTIES ETC.

7.  COLONEL A.C. CLARK HAD INMATES BUILD VOLLEY BALL COURTS IN FRONT OF HIS HOUSE WITH INMATE LABOR AND STATE SUPPLIES.

8.  COLONEL A.C. CLARK  HAS CHARGED PEOPLE ENTRY FEES TO PLAY VOLLEYBALL ON TEAMS IN FRONT OF HIS STATE HOUSE ON STATE PROPERTY.  EXAMPLE $10.00 PER PLAYER

9.  COLONEL A.C. CLARK HAD INMATES INSTALL A 7 PERSON JACUZZI IN HIS HOUSE.

10.  SGT. CHRIS EDDINS WAS CHARGED WITH DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN BAKER COUNTY, SERVED HIS JAIL TIME ON THE WEEKENDS AND STILL HAS A STATE JOB.

11. LT. JOHN PALMER HAS BEEN PUT INTO A CAPTAINS POSITION AT F.S.P. AND WILL AUTOMATICALLY GET PROMOTED TO CAPTAIN AFTER 21 DAYS.  MEANING HE DOESN'T HAVE TO GO TO AN INTERVIEW OR ANYTHING.  THIS IS ONE OF COLONEL A.C. CLARK'S RIGHT HAND MEN.

12. CAPTAIN L. GRIFFIS HAS BEEN PUT INTO A MAJORS POSITION AT F.S.P. AND WILL AUTOMATICALLY GET PROMOTED TO MAJOR AFTER 21 DAYS.  MEANING HE DOESN'T HAVE TO GO TO AN INTERVIEW OR ANYTHING.  THIS IS ALSO ONE OF COLONEL A.C. CLARKS RIGHT HAND MEN.

13. SGT. KENNY HOLLINGSWORTH AND OFFICER BIGGS RECENTLY GOT ARRESTED AT 8 SECONDS NIGHT CLUB IN GAINESVILLE AND COMMITTED BATTERY ON A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER AT GAINESVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT.

COLONEL A.C. CLARK CALLED JAMES CROSBY JR. REGION 2 DIRECTOR AND INFORMED HIM OF THE INCIDENT.  JAMES CROSBY JR. THEN CALLED JEB BUSH AND ASKED HIM TO MAKE A CALL TO GAINESVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT AND HAVE THE CHARGES DROPPED AGAINST THE 2 FLORIDA STATE PRISON EMPLOYEES.  JEB BUSH MADE THE CALL BUT GAINESVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT WOULD NOT DROP THE CHARGES.

14. COLONEL A.C. CLARK  AND JAMES CROSBY JR. GAVE GOVERNOR JEB BUSH A CHECK FOR $30,000.00 DOLLARS AT THE CLAY COUNTY BUSH RALLY.

THE FUNDS WERE COLLECTED FROM BETS PLACED ON THE SOFTBALL GAMES WITH COLONEL A.C. CLARK AND JAMES CROSBY JR., 50/50 TICKETS, AND THE ILLEGAL SELLING OF DEER MEAT THAT WAS POACHED.

15.  COLONEL A.C. CLARK USED TO BE A CAPTAIN AT NEW RIVER WEST WHOM WAS DEMOTED IN 1998 OR 1999 FOR STEALING OVER $50,000 DOLLARS FROM THE EMPLOYEES CLUB.

CAPTAIN CLARK WAS DEMOTED TO A LT. AND THEN  WAS MOVED TO FLORIDA STATE PRISON INTO A CREATED MAJORS POSITION AT THE MAIN UNIT.  (THE MAIN UNIT NEVER HAD A MAJOR'S POSITION UNTIL WARDEN JAMES CROSBY CREATED ONE FOR HIS FRIEND A.C. CLARK.)

MAJOR CLARK WAS THEN PROMOTED TO COLONEL.  AND WARDEN CROSBY MOVED TO REGIONAL DIRECTOR WHERE HE STILL HAS CONTROL OVER REGION 2**.   FOR EXAMPLE IN GETTING PROMOTED.  IF HE WANTS ONE OF HIS BOYS TO GET PROMOTED.  HE WILL GET IT.  IF HE DOESN'T WANT A SO CALLED NON TEAM PLAYER TO GET PROMOTED HE WON'T.

**2005 UPDATE: Allen 'AC' Clark is now Director of Region I and James Crosby is enjoying the bennies of being Secretary of the Florida Department of 'Corrections'.

16.  SOFTBALL PLAYERS AND FLAG FOOTBALL PLAYERS PLAY SPORTS ON STATE TIME AND GET PAID FOR IT.

17.  FROM THE GOVERNOR ON DOWN TO THE SECRETARY OF THE DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS, REGION 2 DIRECTOR, WARDEN AND THE COLONEL AND CAPTAINS AT FLORIDA STATE PRISON ARE ALL INTERTWINED IN WHAT IS GOING.  FLORIDA STATE PRISON IS A CASH COW FROM THE COLONEL ALL THE WAY TO THE GOVERNOR.


18. ***************THIS HAS NOT BEEN ADDRESSED YET TO OFFICIALS BUT  STEROID USE IS RAMPANT AT F.S.P.

CAPTAIN DEAN ELLIS AND SGT. BRIAN GRIFFIS ARE SELLING STEROIDS AND USING THEM.**************************

  • THE 1-800-GET-LEAN NUMBER HAS BEEN CALLED AND NOTHING HAS HAPPENED.
  • THE FLORIDA DEPT OF LAW ENFORCEMENT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED AND NOTHING HAS HAPPENED.
  • THE IRS HAS BEEN NOTIFIED AND NOTHING HAS HAPPENED.

MY GUESS IS THAT JEB BUSH HAS GOT THE POWER TO SQUASH ALL OF THESE WRONG DOINGS FOR HIS GOOD FRIENDS A.C. CLARK AND JAMES CROSBY.

THE REASON THE ABOVE INFORMATION HAS BEEN SUBMITTED IS BECAUSE I FEEL SOME OF THE EMPLOYEES AT FLORIDA STATE PRISON ARE WORKING IN A COMMUNIST ENVIRONMENT.  THERE IS A LOT OF MENTAL STRESS THERE NOT FROM THE INMATES BUT FROM THE STAFF.

I WISH TO REMAIN A CONFIDENTIAL INFORMANT AS MY LIFE WOULD BE IN JEOPARDY IF ANY OF THE ABOVE INFORMATION GOT LINKED BACK TO MYSELF.  THANK YOU 


This report was originally sent on Sun, 13 Oct 2002 To The Gainesville Sun: <voylesk@gvillesun.com>.  I do not know why they did not investigate.  Surely the media is impervious to the High-Handed methods of the Florida Department of Corruptions!  If you have more information, please contact Kay Lee
