Last night I posted an update on Mark Turner’s criminal prosecution case in Pensacola, Florida. One thing I want my readers to know, especially those many who have been reading about him here for many months: Mark’s home community of Pensacola and Gulf Breeze and the greater Escambia and Santa Rosa counties know practically nothing about what has been done to him. With the US Observer taking up his case, Pensacola is about to hear and read what officials in his city have perpetrated against him and his family.
I’m taking heart at this, because Pensacola is not a huge metropolis. For each newspaper, radio station, and TV station refusing to talk about Mark Turner’s battle for freedom, many, many will be talking about it now. Perhaps those to ignored the whole thing will find it necessary to tell us who’s money kept them quiet…which official of the court threatened them.
The story of a long-time Pensacola-area businessman, tangling with a very prosperous local business giant, and going to prison for it…trying to commit suicide when the appeal was lost, gets nothing in Pensacola? No ink, no air, no nothing?
I hope Pensacola and Gulf Breeze residents are outraged that much of Turner’s story has not seen the light of day. If you know anything about the history of corrupt prosecutors, you should know that Mark Turner could have been you…may be you. The Turner family has found that wrongful prosecutions are happening all across the U.S. Read the US Observer’s first article. Read my update of January 3, 2010. Read my history of Mark’s case.
