This is an open letter to the female deputy with whom I spoke at R2i2 on Janauary 25, 2022, after Pamela Davis erupted following my introduction.
I neglected to get your name and Badge Number at the time, when we spoke in the hallway.
When I picked up the reports availble to me from RCSD, I was given only the R/O's report, most of which was redacted. Your name does not appear in his report.
You and I had the longest contact. It was you who responded to where I was seated, when I asked the Richland 2 security officer to summon a deputy as an independent law-enforcement observer. I appreciated your professionalism and courtesy.
I requested Sheriff Lott to obtain a statement from you, and he replied only that there wasn't one. I already knew that.
Your testimony will be needed in the future, and I would appreciate your writing a statement for your own records, so that the events will be clear in the future.
If you would care to call me, feel free to block your number. I suggest not calling from a RCSD phone.
In Illinois I had the confidence of numerous deputies and police officers, who leaked information to me about the dirt in their departments. They expected that I would not reveal their names. The sheriff there tried to squeeze me with a subpoena in a deputy's Federal wrongful termination lawsuit. The sheriff wanted 27 months' worth of letters, emails, faxes, notes, etc. from any current or former employee of the sheriff's department. I knew I was not going to reveal even one name!
I filed a motion pro se to quash the subpoena, and the Federal Magistrate granted it! He ate up the sheriff's attorney and told her she was just on a "fishing expedition" (his words).
I'll let you know through RCSD when your testimony is needed.
