1. JOSE BAEZ - December 2016
One of the enduring features of the Seminole County jail is girls get to read stories about the other girls in jail, in the newspaper. It is another example of shameless dishonesty, with no motive but to take the life of a young girl, that no one will even admit this small persistent fact. Every person associated with Mandi's case, from state attorneys to deputy sheriffs to jail employees to 15-time incarcerated felons, will tell you with a straight face that the jail employees examine every newspaper thoroughly and removed every story that ever mentioned an inmate, so this never happened.
The state attorney included as discovery, a recorded phone call from jail on December 30, 2016. In the phone call, Mandi talks with her mother about stories about her own case, in the newspaper available inside the jail that day. The state attorney also included as discovery, a recorded phone call from the jail where Julie Madara mentions reading about another inmate in the newspaper. There were also stories in the newspaper when Mandi was in the Orange County jail, when she was first arrested. Eventual jailhouse witness Kaylee Simmons swore that eventual jailhouse witness Julie Madara was always the first to read the newspaper, where she could find the details of allegations against other inmates.
In the December 30, 2016 phone call, Mandi and her mother were in a panic about the false accusations against Mandi which were being spread online and in the newspaper. Mandi was crying out loud on the phone. The news stories were read in jail by Julie Madara, who then made a false claim that Mandi confessed to the exact crime she was accused of, but which there was no hard evidence of. What Mandi and her mother didn't know, is the false accusations were provided to the newspaper by someone that had been paid to help Mandi, attorney Jose Baez.
The December 30, 2016 newspaper stories first appeared online on December 28 or 29, 2016. They had details and images of Mandi's arrest affidavit, which I had just handed to the tattooed receptionist at the Orlando office of attorney Jose Baez during my lunch break on December 28, 2016. Madara's claimed confession from Mandi included multiple details from this arrest affidavit including 1) Mandi applied to Dollhouse based on somehow knowing the amount of money Mulrenin would have in his pocket at the end of the night, and 2) Mandi was "in contact" with Mulrenin in a struggle immediately prior to him going over the balcony.
The actions of attorney Jose Baez, to whom I gave my trust and my money, and who had a duty of care to Mandi, led directly to Julie Madara's confession scam, and Mandi's resulting conviction and two life sentences.
I first contacted the Orlando office of Jose Baez within a few days of Mandi being arrested, probably around Thursday December 22, 2016. The female I talked to gave me the name of a different female who would call me back. The name of the second female was a short white-girl name like "Jen." After a few days I was finally able to talk to that second female. Within two hours of talking to that employee of Jose Baez on the phone, there were suddenly new news articles and blog posts about Mandi's case on the web, including one on caseyanthony.com.
At the time, I was a web and traffic and news and clicks junky. People had been paying me to put up new web sites, and generate traffic for new web businesses, since 2001, going back to when the web was young and traffic was up for grabs. When Mandi got arrested, I was sitting in front of a computer every waking minute of every day, working on a contract for the oldest cloud-hosting company in Florida. I had been searching the web for news and pages with Mandi or Scott or Mulrenin's name in them, approximately every 30 minutes since Mandi got arrested. As an expert on web marketing and search-engine optimization, I was qualified to locate and make note of new web content when it appeared, authoritatively and exhaustively.
At the time I began soliciting the Baez law firm, it was around a week after Mandi's arrest. Mandi's facebook had been closed, and there had been no new online content with Mandi's name in it for days. When there are no new stories or blogs for many days, and then one gets indexed by search engines as live user content at caseyanthony.com within less than two hours of me talking to the female at the office of Jose Baez, I know the female at the office of Jose Baez made the blogger at caseyanthony.com aware of the story. The business plan of caseyanthony.com was to drive clicks based on content associated with legal activities of Jose Baez.
It is not clear to me that having blogs repeat the accusations against Mandi helped her case. And the evidence is that it actually hurt her case by stirring up anger at Mandi based on false information.
After several calls to the Orlando phone number of Jose Baez, I was finally able to talk on the phone to the female who was originally named as the appropriate contact who would call me back. She asked someone between phone calls, and told me I think $120,000 as a ballpark estimate of what hiring Jose might cost. I think she was a little vague at first around $100,000. Then she talked to someone and got a firm response. $120k was the firm number.
She said paying in installments was acceptable. I told her how much I would pay up front, and how long it would take to pay the rest. Again she confirmed with someone else, and said this was acceptable, it was a standard arrangement.
After talking to this female on the phone around December 26, 2016 about how much Jose Baez might charge, and agreeing that I could pay it, I finally got an appointment for a consultation. She said I needed to pay $1000 in advance to talk to Jose Baez. Though the other attorneys promoted by the Orlando office with his name on it, were offering free consultations.
The reason I contacted Jose Baez was not because he got a not-guilty verdict for Casey Anthony, when she was obviously guilty. I knew Mandi was not guilty. I contacted Jose Baez because after Casey Anthony, his career strategy seemed to be only taking on cases where the defendant was not guilty or there was a reasonable doubt, to pad and protect his record.
I was a high-tech stalker who often knew exactly what Mandi had been doing every day. I knew she was not guilty of what she was accused of. I thought the difference between the outlandish accusations, and what actually happened, was the ideal raw material for Jose Baez to continue to build his reputation. The difference between the crazy accusations and the truth, would provide Jose with a lot of material to strut around and be zealous about, and prevail in court.
I went to the Orlando office of Jose Baez on December 28, 2016, the day before my consultation, to pay the $1000. I got a copy of the arrest affidavit from the Seminole Clerk of Courts, and brought it with me. I gave my copy to the young tattooed female at the office of Jose Baez. I did this because she said it would be helpful to provide Jose information on the case. Within hours of my leaving the office, the exact copy I left at the office of Jose Baez, with the exact markings and orientation of the pages that came off the copy machine at the Seminole County courthouse, appeared at WESH.com with a story titled something like "new details in the case."
There were no new public details in the case. The arrest affidavit had been available in person, through the court clerk at the Seminole County criminal courthouse, for days. Court records were not available online until a few months later.
And there had been no new web stories on Mandi's case for at least a few days, maybe a week. In fact, there had been no new news stories since the first time I brought the case to the attention of the female on the phone at Jose's office. So it is was obvious beyond any doubt that the female at Jose Baez's office scanned and emailed the arrest affidavit I brought her, to WESH the second I walked out the door. They also somehow got it at a site called lawnewz.com that immediately pushed a new story based on the arrest affidavit soon after I left their office.
After nothing for many days, there was an immediate flurry of news stories based on the arrest affidavit which I brought to Jose Baez's office to help Mandi. It is not clear that promoting a bunch of news stories repeating the false accusations helped Mandi. Based on people I have spoken to, it hurt her case.
The clerk at the Seminole courthouse printed the arrest affidavit on a printer behind the counter. She then redacted it by hand, crossing out personal information with a pen, before she handed it to me. I gave that original copy to the tattooed receptionist at the Orlando office of Jose Baez. After she scanned it in to email to Jose, I told her to keep the original and give me a copy, to make sure it did not hurt his eyes to read a bad copy. So the copy I got was produced from the same scan that she sent to the media. As a result, I was able to match the copies which immediately appeared online to my own. My own copy matched the copies which appeared online not only based on the flaws and markings from the Seminole courthouse, but based on the additional scanning artifacts produced at the office of Jose Baez, the imperfections, and the angle of the lines relative to level.
At the time, I assumed I would hire Jose Baez. So I had no choice but to trust his decision to push the accusations out to the media, before I even met him. I texted Mandi's mother about how I didn't like all the news stories, but I had to accept the wisdom of a paid expert with more experience than me, if that is how he chose to manage the case.
So the day came for my $1000 consultation with Jose Baez, and I was told Jose is not here but he is coming. Sean Landers will meet with me instead. Sean seemed like a good and smart lawyer, but he does not charge $1000 for a consultation, his are free like every other lawyer in Orlando. After I spoke with Sean at length and he took many notes, Jose walked in and spoke briefly. Jose obviously had no idea about the case. Jose started out by running off two or three stock lines about the law.
Jose used his three inane lines to brag how whatever the victim says, we can attack his credibility. In fact the victim was dead and won't be saying anything. This was about three quarters of the way through my consultation. But whereas everybody on Jose's receptionist's tip list knew the victim was dead, Jose did not.
Jose then went on to quiz me over whether the defendant had family, and what their jobs are, how much money they have or make. So I basically paid $1000 to 1) have someone promote news stories about Mandi doing terrible things which she didn't do, 2) talk to a free-consultation lawyer Sean Landers, 3) hear Jose recite a few lines that were so generic and irrelevant it was embarrassing, and 4) be quizzed about how much money the defendant's family has. After I mentioned I was giving the defendant a lot of money to spend on food from the jail commissary, Jose told me that she might "blow up" and I "might not want her any more."
Jose said this was a problem for him. He said if he took the case, and I lost interest in the defendant and I didn't want to pay him, the judge might not let him withdraw from the case. Jose was too busy with the Hernandez case and stated that even after that, he had no interest in criminal cases as there was "no money in it." He said he wanted to do a civil case.
I told Jose this had nothing to do with my personal interest in the defendant. It was based on my personal interest in the truth, which my interest in the defendant put me in a position to know. I was there because I knew something about the case, I knew the defendant was falsely accused, and truth and justice are of value to me. I was pursuing abstract ideals, not sex. Sex is as common as sociopathic self-absorbed Jewish attorneys with catholicized names. Though not specifically for them, I can guess, just based on Jose's cheezy BMW jacket which he wore to match his BMW.
At first it was hard to put Jose's "no money in it" in context, in a consultation I paid $1000 for. Jose made his generic comments about strategy to win a criminal case, and then he offered the caveat there was "no money in it," It came across like "during the trial we can question the victim's credibility, but there is no money in it." Was he speaking figuratively, was he telling me his own strategy would be ineffective? It took me a moment to put together he was not characterizing his strategy to get a not-guilty verdict as ineffective. He was saying getting a not-guilty verdict in Mandi's case literally would not produce any money. He thought it was useful to point out that a winning verdict in a civil case produces money.
I was told it would be $120,000 to hire Jose, or I could hire Sean Landers for "about half that" $60,000. I said I already told the receptionist I was ready to pay according to the terms she relayed to me. Jose told me they would look into the case and call me. They never did. I sent several emails and made several calls to the office, and got no response.
I have since met people around town who read the news stories set up by the female working at Jose's office, and as a direct result of the broader promotion of this misinformation, had been demanding the defendant's head in every avenue available to them. The news stories Jose's receptionist directly created were read by girls in the jail, recycled as gossip, and presented at trial as confessions from the defendant. And it delayed the trial by years in the process.
To me, this seems unethical. I got swindled out of $1000. I have since done what I promised Jose I would do, I have spent over $100,000 on lawyers in Mandi's case. I did not get what was promised to me, and in fact they hurt the defendant immeasurably through their active promotion of dirt in the press.
The things Jose said in his "consultation" were so inane and misplaced, I have since come to suspect he provokes a favorable impulse from jurors only by seeming harmless and pathetic. It looks like he has mild microcephaly from zika or something. And his eyes are close together. The effect is he strikes you as too stupid and earnest, to lie or have sinister intentions. He looks a victim of injustice just standing in front of you. The jury will give this pathetic man whatever he is up there passionately asking for like a shoeless beggar, just to make the world more fair.
On the other hand, he wore a cheezy BMW jacket that seemed a little childish, a little beneath a famous forty-six-year-old millionaire trial lawyer. I could see how those dumb fuck Seminole jurors might be on his same wavelength and think that was a really cool jacket. This guy for real had a bourgeois BMW and matching jacket to swindle me out of my $1k.
Logo items are common expressions of aspirations by idiots. Like a kid riding the city bus might wear a jacket with a picture of a car on it. An undergraduate at UCF might wear a baseball cap with the name of a law firm on it. Jose owned the BMW and still wore the jacket. Do NFL players wear their jerseys to Walmart?
Normally lawyers like to pose in suits with law library books behind them. This guy came representing car wax and lawsuits. And sending news stories with details of the false accusations against the defendant, into the jail. And with a proposed strategy to discredit the testimony of a dead person.
2. GIRLS IN JAIL - 2016 to 2019
I had an educational experience with girls in jail. Mandi gives them my number. She is eager to please them. She tells them I once gave her $15,000 in cash which I never did, and that I am going to buy her a $100,000 car when she gets out of jail. They call me thinking I will buy them a car also. Usually they call after they get out of jail, but I get a lot of calls from in jail also.
A girl who got moved from the Osceola County jail to Seminole County was desperate to make contact with her dear friend who was still in Osceola County. The girl in Osceola County had cancer in her stomach, and was probably near death. That was my understanding of the emotional importance to the Seminole girl, who was worried about her sick friend and wanted to make contact. Osceola was a heroin dealer. Seminole passed over $1 million in counterfeit in a dozen counties, including Osceola and Seminole.
I tried to find the Osceola girl on the jail website, but she had been released. So we tried multiple phone numbers for her and left messages. Finally after a lot of messages explaining how Osceola's dear friend was trying to reach her, someone picked up during a message on an old-timey landline answering machine, and said "Don't call here any more." I believe it was Osceola's mother. So I waited like a week, and tried again.
Finally Osceola picked up the phone and talked to me. She said she refused to talk to Seminole, because she had since learned from other girls in Osceola, how Seminole was actually a sick evil sociopathic mentally-ill liar.
The pictures Seminole showed in jail of her own baby daughter, were really pictures she had stolen. Seminole stalked the child of another girl in Osceola jail and took pictures with the other girl's child, claiming the child was her own. Seminole stole something, or did a number of other evil and lying things. Osceola spent everything she had to make Seminole a jail birthday cake the day she left Osceola, and Seminole had betrayed Osceola with these lies.
There was some secret about Seminole that was so awful and shocking, Osceola did not even want to tell me. She said if she told me, I would never want to talk to Seminole again. She finally revealed the terrible secret to me. Seminole... HAS SUGAR DADDIES! This from a heroin dealer.
Osceola then explained to me how she had swallowed a piece of metal in jail, and got beat up by a guard, and needed to go to the hospital straight from the jail when she got released. And she finally had surgery to cut the metal out of her stomach. She said it was like a piece of a fork that accidentally fell in her food in the jail kitchen. Osceola said she was in the hospital recovering from surgery, and that is why she could not respond to my phone calls for a week. I never mentioned cancer to Osceola. She did not know Seminole told me she had cancer.
Based on facebook pictures and other facts I had accumulated, I was able to prove to Osceola that the pictures of Seminole's baby daughter really were her daughter. Even though the girls in jail were way out ahead of me, warning Osceola that Seminole had multiple fake facebook pages full of fake pictures, to trick guys to send her money. And the other evil things Osceola had learned about Seminole were also lies, told by the other girls in jail who were actually lying. Except the sugar daddy part was true.
Whether Osceola had cancer, or got beat up by a guard and swallowed a piece of metal from a kitchen tool, I could not possibly guess. Though I gave it a lot of thought. Seminole's story about the cancer was sincere, and is what motivated her emotional impulse to contact Osceola. Osceola's metal story had elaborate details, but they seemed improbable. But nothing about Osceola's activities or life plans matched someone who has advanced cancer. She talked about working a job and some other things in a casual manner, not like someone who was dying.
After six months of thinking about it, I finally came up with a theory about which jail girl was telling the truth, and whether Osceola really had cancer. Osceola is a drug person, her business is contraband. Osceola probably had a piece of metal contraband which she swallowed during a search. It could have been a pipe, or something used to create a spark and light a contraband cigarette, who knows. She hid it in her mouth. When the guards said "open your mouth" she swallowed it.
Osceola's story, which she then told in jail to explain her medical problem, was that she had cancer. Seminole was worried because she knew Osceola had a pipe stuck in her stomach and was in extreme pain. But Seminole told me the lying story about cancer, because she assumed Osceola was still in jail, and all her communications with me were monitored. Osceola then told me the semi-true story that it was a piece of metal stuck in her stomach, because she was actually at home. But she still didn't tell me the contraband part.
The point is, girls in jail tell complicated elaborate stories. And there is no way for a stranger to determine what is true, or if any of it is true, even after thinking about it for six months. People who deal with girls in jail all the time, such as prosecutors, must have already figured this out a long time ago. So any plan to use testimony from girls in jail, by someone who is familiar with girls in jail, is a blatant and conscious plan to use lies. And to exploit the naivete of jurors, who are not familiar with girls in jail.
Prosecutors put the word out in the jail that they need witnesses, when the case is big in the news, and they don't have anything. I got hints from a number of girls that they had been pressured to come up with stories about Mandi, and other girls in jail. Like a girl who knew Ishnar Lopez-Ramos, suddenly denied having met her. She was paranoid somehow the prosecutors would bring her dropped charges back, to try again to pressure her to testify. Another girl who knew Mandi suddenly said like she had no idea what Mandi was even charged with. She had fear in her voice, fear of prosecutors ratcheting up her charges and holding her, to pressure her to testify.
Perhaps as many as 12 girls in jail provided prosecutors different stories where they claimed Mandi confessed to them. Which is not surprising, given Mandi was an invited guest of Mulrenin who arrived and left without Scott, and could not have been in contact with Scott. There was no other way for prosecutors to prove Mandi's mind contained a plan to collude with Scott and rob Mulrenin. Of those probably 12 jail girls who made up some confession story, I only ever found out what four actually claimed Mandi told them. And of those four, only two made it to the stand at Mandi's trial.
The first was Julie Madara, a forty-something self-described indulgent addict who burglarized people's homes, and sold their heirlooms for drugs. She had convictions for 15 felonies and 2 misdemeanor crimes of dishonesty, and was facing a 10-year sentence, when she learned Mandi knew many of the same people as her, and began researching Mandi's case on her own. Madara is an alcoholic, with a stunted cranium that suggests her mother was also an alcoholic. Madara blamed Mandi's attorney for losing one of her cases a few years earlier, and wanted revenge.
The second was Maletta Young, a habitual offender who had been selling drugs and getting felonies at least since she was 20. 10 years later around age 30, Maletta was convicted for selling every drug except marijuana at once - fentanyl, heroin, cocaine, meth, pills - while possessing a loaded firearm as a convicted felon, and extra bullets in a drug baggie, and also for arranging an aggravated home-invasion battery where she stepped over the body of the helpless victim who had been kicked in the head. Maletta was an informant on an unknown number of cases, was released without bond, and got just two years for everything I just listed. Maletta got 21 new felony charges just between Mandi getting arrested and Mandi's trial, and ended up not testifying for some reason unknown to me.
The third was 18-year-old Kaylee Simmons looking at five total felony convictions, including carjacking and kidnapping, and facing a minimum of 10.5 years and a maximum of life. Kaylee Simmons was a proud teen lesbian, a sort of retarded savant who could probably remember the second she was born but garbled certain words, a child sexual abuse and trafficking victim, and was just downright creepy and unfortunate. I can't imagine what kind of sick men paid to stick their dicks in that haunted-house character. She was also Mandi's best friend in jail until they got caught kissing on camera and separated. Kaylee made a deal to provide secret information on four different cases. One of the cases, Tina Poirier, told Mandi that Kaylee just went into her cell and read her police report.
The fourth story about Mandi came from Ishnar Lopez-Ramos, the infamous love-triangle murder-for-hire case in Kissimmee. She wanted to kill her boyfriend's new girlfriend. They kidnapped the wrong person by mistake, a total stranger, an innocent mother. They put a bag over her head and beat her anyway. The prosecution offered Lopez 60 years. Then she wrote a document claiming to have confessions from three or four different cases, and they offered her 40 years. Nothing came of it by the time of Mandi's trial. Like all the other girl's stories, Lopez said some pretty random details. Lopez said the victim in Mandi's case was a manager at Cleo's, the wrong strip club, Scott Love owned a car, and Mandi's case involved two guns. Girls in jail know the prosecution wants a gun in Mandi's hand.
3. JULIE MADARA - 2017, 2019
One of the more sickening moments in the trial came when this disgusting alcohol-stunted hag Julie Madara claimed Mandi saw her as a mother figure, and laid her head on Madara's lap and called her "Mama Jules." I have never seen Mandi remotely role-play the child-mother role. Mandi has no concept of a caring mother, Mandi's mother is hard, not affectionate. Mandi has no concept that she is a different age from old people. Mandi doesn't want a mother. Mandi sees herself as the mother who needs to do the caring, Mandi never ever ever sees herself as the baby and never asks to be taken care of. Mandi absolutely never uses word "mama" like a latin person, neither the word nor the concept. It would probably be "mommy" but Mandi never said that word either. Mandi never calls me daddy or anything sick like that, I would puke. She sees me as a little brother.
I wouldn't be comfortable around the person Madara describes, not in any role like that. And a person like Madara describes wouldn't be comfortable around me. Mandi never treats old guys in the strip club like they are any older than her. Mandi doesn't have the social concept of it, she does not recognize or comprehend whatsoever that an old person should care about her. She sees old women as sex partners. She's sees herself in competition with her stepmother. I am sure she saw Mulrenin as a little brother. Mandi is somehow colorblind to age. Mandi never knew that she was a child.
In her first month in Florida prison, Mandi probably had sex with women whose total age exceeds 200 years. And like her boyfriends outside of jail, her girlfriends in jail all seem to have an eight-year-old son. Are you surprised there are aggressive sociopaths in prison just like Mandi gave herself to on the outside, and Mandi spends all day in prison on drugs? To me it's the least disturbing thing at this point.
Madara said Mandi Jackson called her "Mama Jules" and confessed to her on a mattress under the stairs in the Seminole County Jail. The other girls in jail told me the only thing Mandi would have been doing under there with Madara is having sex with her. Reality is dissonant. Non-reality is projecting your own life experiences - your "common sense" as prosecutor Stone told the jury - onto a stranger called Mandi Jackson. Non-reality is ignoring the truth in favor of your own preconceptions, like Detective Sprague.
It is more likely a conversation like Madara described, took place with Kaylee Simmons, in February of 2017 before Kaylee could have met Mandi. Kaylee was sexually abused as a child, and is used to being treated like or playing the role of a victim, of a child. Mandi played the mother role, telling me Kaylee had a hard life and needed a break on her sentence. Mandi tried to get me to send money to feed Kaylee's sister's kids. Madara said the person who cried on her lap and confessed was "Kaylee" multiple times at Mandi's trial, despite Madara previously claiming she and Kaylee never met.
At Madara's deposition, Madara quoted the girl in her confession as saying "I'm only 19 years old. I have my whole life ahead of me and I have this now." On September 21, 2016, when Kaylee was arrested, she was 19. When Kaylee supposedly met Madara right before Madara sent her letter to the prosecutor, Kaylee had just turned 20 a few days earlier, whereas Mandi had been 21 for 9 months. At Mandi's trial, Kaylee said "I've been my whole life in here." Though like many things, it is not in the transcript. It was around when she said "actually growing up, because, you know, I never got that chance. I never had an ID or anything." For contrast, Mandi never mentioned any concept of a future life different from and better than the present. Mandi thought she was always an adult.
After interviewing Julie Madara at Lowell prison, the prosecution claimed Mandi Jackson made the following statements to Julie Madara:
1. Mandi Jackson and Scott Love, and a person named Christopher Dahl, devised a plan by which Mandi Jackson would take the money of the manager of Dollhouse, James Mulrenin.
2) Scott Love reluctantly agreed to participate in this plan
3) Pursuant to this plan, the defendant obtained employment at Dollhouse,
4) Mandi Jackson went to James Mulrenin's residence, at which Mandi Jackson and James Mulrenin drank and ingested cocaine
5) Mandi Jackson placed a substance in the drink of James Mulrenin for the purpose of impairing/incapacitating James Mulrenin.
6) Mandi Jackson opened the front door of the residence and allowed Scott Love into the residence
7) A struggle with James Mulrenin ensued within the residence during which Scott Love shot James Mulrenin in the leg
8) James Mulrenin attempted to leave the residence but was unable to do so because Scott Love was standing in front of the front door holding a gun
9) James Mulrenin went to the balcony at which a struggle took place while James Mulrenin, Mandi Jackson, and Scott Love were on the balcony, during which James Mulrenin went off the balcony
10) Mandi Jackson and Scott Love panicked, took James Mulrenin's wallet and credit cards and used James Mulrenin's credit cards to make a purchase or purchases.
The prosecution must have felt a little hesitant describing exactly what Madara said, and wanted to keep it general. They knew it was lies, and just wanted to scare Mandi into taking a 25-year deal. Because Madara expanded on some pretty odd things in a deposition a year later, including:
A) The plan to target Mulrenin was based on Mandi saying Mulrenin "carried a lot of cash on him." Mandi "said he carried -- she specifically said 13,000 dollars, he's always got, like 13,000 dollars in his pocket."
B) Mandi Jackson specifically slipped the drug "G" in Mulrenin's drink to incapacitate him, which Madara said was the same drug Mandi got arrested with in Georgia.
Finally at trial, Madara recited the "shot while fleeing" narrative from Sprague's police report. She said they tried to tie Mulrenin up with duct tape but he resisted and stood up. So they shot him, and he ran off the balcony. Just like when everyone else says it, Madara's story is inconsistent with the fact that he sat in the recliner and bled for a few minutes, further from the balcony than the supposed bullet hole. And the duct tape is the circumference of his thigh, and has blood in two spots that match the entry and exit wound. In theory they could have shot him, and then tried to tie him up. But Madara's story doesn't match that possible story. Madara's story matches Detective Sprague and prosecutor Stone's impossible story.
Understand Madara's confession is worthless to any sane person in normal circumstances. Lead Detective Sprague was present for Madara's original statements at Lowell prison. He said at trial that he did not even bother to investigate them. He said at trial the name "Christopher Dahl" was not even familiar to him, he had no recollection of Madara saying that name. The only purpose of writing down the statements of a 15-time felon, was to overwhelm and intimidate Mandi Jackson while they kept her drugged in isolation for 6 months, to force her to testify against Scott Love in exchange for a 25-year sentence. They locked Mandi in isolation and slipped Madara's subpoena under the door, thinking it would scare her. Mandi had no idea what is was or why.
The basic idea of what happened, that Mandi went to Mulrenin's apartment and did cocaine, and Scott showed up and shot him in the leg, is not in dispute. Mandi also told her mother on the recorded jail phone that Mulrenin was on G, and the jail girls in the day room literally have nothing better to do than eavesdrop on phone calls. But right away, you start to see problems with the parts of Madara's story which police had no proof of and desperately needed, the parts where Madara tries to say Mandi planned to rob Mulrenin.
There is no reason for Mandi to apply for and get and work a job with her real name, and go to Mulrenin's apartment for two hours and tie him up in duct tape, to stick him up for money he "carried on him." They can do that right on the sidewalk. Unless the truth of what Madara says doesn't matter, and you just want to hear a 15-time felon who is getting out of prison early for saying it, say Mandi is guilty.
$13k does not fit in your pocket even straight from the bank. Certainly not in a GQ man's money clip. 130 used $100 bills obtained as revenue in a strip club will stack two inches high. Madara is correct there was $13,000 involved in this case. $13k is the amount police found in Mulrenin's storage closet, $13,000 is the number that appeared in the police report, $1300 is the number Mini-Jim quoted to me at Gator's Sodo, and that 13 number also appeared in a newspaper article that all the girls read in jail.
Only problem is, Mandi had no way of knowing there was $13k hidden in Mulrenin's balcony closet in a boot box. Probably not even Mulrenin knew there was $13k in his boot box. until the police counted it. The cash was jumbled together with different denominations in different stacks of different sizes, some inside a bag, some inside an envelope. Certainly no one other than Mulrenin could know that exact number 13. Anyone describing the money they thought Mulrenin had, might guess 10 or 20, but not 13.
Most of the money in the boot box in his closet was in a black plastic bag. But there was some money outside the bag that looked like he could have just thrown it in there, that looks like maybe $2500. Maybe the missing witness was right, maybe Mulrenin really did leave with $2500 and just threw it in there without putting it in the bag. But that means at the beginning of the night when Mandi supposedly planned the robbery, there would have been only $11k in there not $13k.
Suppose that extra $2500 outside the main bag was already in the box before that night. If you somehow got a look inside the open box, that is all you would see. You would see something that looked like maybe $2500 depending on what bills are really in the stacks, and a black plastic bag. And if the stacks actually contain $1's and $20's, it's a lot less than $2500.
It is not until you open up the black plastic bag next to the money, that you see there is more money inside. And it is not until you actually see what bills are inside the stacks and count them, that you know how much it is total. That would take at least a few minutes to get a rough count. And some of the money is in paper bands and old rubber bands, which would be hard to replace after counting. So nobody but Mulrenin can even know there is that much money in there, much less the exact amount.
It is not credible that someone would dress up as a stripper, drive to the far side of Orlando, apply for a job with a stranger, work an entire night with the hope that stranger might invite her home, drive her boyfriend to another county at 5AM, and drink with a reputed rapist in his apartment for two hours, based on a rumor about how much money that stranger might have in his pocket at the end of the night. Or even in a box. Especially not when every strip club in Florida has high-rollers waving more cash around than a neanderthal strip-club manager will ever hope to pocket. You think a stripper needs to be tipped off to find a guy carrying cash? Only in the land of pure idiots, Seminole County. Everyone in the strip club has more cash than the manager.
No matter how you look at it, Madara's claim about Mandi confessing a plan with the detail of the $13k mentioned in the police report is not credible. $13k cannot be the plan, it can only be the accusation after the money is counted by police. Madara is reciting an accusation, not a confession.
But the jury surely never had the chance to perform anything like the analysis I did here, and may have just taken it at face value. It's just garbage, Mandi simply never said it, not in his pocket because she couldn't predict and it wouldn't fit, and not in his box because she couldn't know. It is not possible she said what Madara claims. But garbage is the standard of government employees to take a young girl's life. Does it matter that they can just pay Madara to say nonsense and take a young girl's life?
According to witnesses on the ground who clearly saw Mulrenin on his illuminated balcony before he jumped, he was alone out there and not in a "struggle" as stated by Madara. This is also what Mandi told her mother on the recorded jail phone. Police found work boots and the "Don't Tread On Me" shirt which they said Scott Love was wearing on video at The Lofts. Neither had any blood, or any DNA of James Mulrenin. But there was blood from Mulrenin's leg on the floor, sofa, duct tape, cable ties, sliding glass door, and front door. Mulrenin did NOT go over in a struggle as claimed by Madara.
It was Madara who said at trial, Mandi confessed to seeing Mulrenin hit his head on the railing five stories below. Evidence is he hit first hit the railing with his legs, and then hit his head on the wall, below the railing and out of sight from the balcony. The way his legs were snapped, his head would have shattered if it hit that railing. His head only had a cut on it, his skull was not even fractured. Didn't stop prosecutor Stone from leading the medical examiner outside her expertise, to say the cut on his head could have come from hitting the railing. Meanwhile it was dark and nobody was even on the balcony to see much less leaning over. And even if they had been, his whole body would have obscured what part hit first.
There is also the general problem that Mandi seemed to already know James Mulrenin. She didn't just meet him that night to set him up based on a tip from Chris Dahl in Madara's story. During her video interview, Neisha Cintron described Mandi and Mulrenin as having an unusually close working relationship for two people who just met, right from the beginning of the night. And cell tower records show Mandi at Mulrenin's house four times that week, including a longer visit the previous Saturday than the night he died. So this pure theory that Mandi went to the Dollhouse and met Mulrenin that night, for the purpose of robbing him, doesn't fit with actual evidence that Mandi already knew Mulrenin for a while.
We also know Mandi does not use G to incapacitate people which was the center of Madara's story. Mandi does not even think G can be used to incapacitate people.
Mandi Jackson participated in at least 8 different people taking G that I know of: Chris Dahl, herself, James Arnold (I'm assuming), me, my neighbor from across West Muriel Street, Tywaun's best friend, the freaky lady whose house they lived in, and boyfriend Tywaun. In none of these instances did Mandi ever expect G to incapacitate anyone. Quite the opposite, Mandi Jackson wants to be fucked like a racehorse on G. At my house, she took G continuously from maybe 11 AM to 4 PM. Not only did she not become incapacitated, she drove home and had sex with three more people, in two sessions.
Six of those eight people Mandi participated in taking G, were guys. None of those six guys gave her a dollar after taking G. She did not attempt to take money from any of them, or expect to get money from any of them, on the day they took G. Mandi Jackson expected G to make a guy rowdier, and harder to handle. She expected it to make Tywaun's best friend more vigorous. When he couldn't stay hard, she was disappointed the G didn't work, and blamed his problems on cocaine.
I may have even taken G the day I fucked her upstairs at her mom's townhouse around June 2, 2016. Mandi took G that day. I know she would have offered it to me. Her little brother's friends were there, her mom was there, her mom's boyfriend James was there. Her mom said somebody saw Mandi squirting something in her mouth.
I saw Mandi taking G when nobody else was there. Combine that with what her mom said, she was taking it all day. I fucked her for at least 30 minutes, so loud the people downstairs could hear. Then we carried her furniture down the stairs together, out to my truck together, and unloaded it at my house together. Dresser, trunk, mattress, two people. She was up to around 115 pounds that day when she took G and carried furniture. She had been putting on weight from her new anxiety medication. She was buying too much Lucky Charms with those Walmart gift cards I gave her.
After she took G and we had sex and we carried her furniture, she took all the bolts out of the top of her car engine to try to find where oil was leaking from Then after all that, she took a brief nap from either exhaustion or her anxiety medication. Then she woke up, put the screws back in her engine, tied the loose plastic parts above the engine with duct tape, and hurried home to her boyfriend around 9 PM. That was a day on G for Mandi.
Julie Madara's central claim, that Mandi Jackson drugged Mulrenin with G with the expectation that he would become incapacitated, or easier to rob in any way, is impossible. Everything in Mandi Jackson's prior behavior and experience with G made it impossible for such an idea to exist in her head.
There is not much documentation of G on the web, because it does not do much. There is 10 million times more written about kratom and CBD oil. But what little documentation there is on G shows it has been taken in the form of gas-station sexual-enhancement placebos with names like "InnerG", "NRG3", and "Thunder Nectar." In other words people expect it to give them more energy, to make them rowdier, to have more fun, to do crazier things.
This idea that anybody, much less Mandi, could think G would incapacitate someone and make him easier to rob, is a complete invention by a sick felon, preying on gullible people who have no idea about anything, to get out of prison. And Florida rubes are so dumb, this is how their justice system works. They free felons who invent nonsense to victimize the innocent. Because some crazy hemp-oil grade science, and a moral panic about a drug with the same letter. Mandi may as well incapacitate Mulrenin with a fucking mood crystal.
Mandi doesn't need to let Scott into the apartment, any more than a bank teller needs to let a robber into the bank. She can just wait until Mulrenin is in the shower, or falls asleep, and take any money she knows about herself. Fucking old guys, is how Mandi Jackson gets their money, she doesn't need a gun. A girl is born naked with everything she needs to take a guy's money. Mandi has total confidence in her own ability to please a guy out of his money. But there is no way Mandi is going to apply for and get and work a job, to steal rumored money she has never even seen, in a world with a billion guys who will all pay money to fuck her in the first five minutes. She only needs to walk down the sidewalk. A guy with a Mercedes will drive up, not a Chrysler 300.
There was also some allegation that Mulrenin went home with a lot of money because Dollhouse had a big night. But Mandi could not have known Dollhouse would have a big night, and Mulrenin would therefore go home with a lot of money, when she first applied. Both Gorewitz and cell towers have Mandi first coming to Dollhouse around 8:30 PM.
The part about Chris Dahl putting a reluctant Scott Love up to a robbery, didn't fit with what I knew about both their personalities and habits. Something was fishy, I was recognizing something. I barely got to the bottom of Madara's list of allegations when I suddenly realized: This was the same story Mini-Jim Ferrara said they invented in Dollhouse on the night of December 14th. Madara was reciting the drugged-and-thrown-off-balcony story. Madara started with the standard stuff in the newspaper and police report. But the part Madara added herself was the drugged-and-thrown-off-balcony story.
Even the part about Scott standing by the front door holding a gun fit with the Dollhouse story. If Scott was really there to rob, he would either be standing by Mulrenin at the sofa, or going through the cabinets and boxes. The Dollhouse employees did not include Scott in their first theory. They wondered how "petite" Mandi (according to Cintron) could win a "struggle" and throw Big Jim off the balcony? Scott standing by the door with a gun was something made up after, to add Scott into their original theory of Mandi drugging Big Jim and throwing him off the balcony.
This story was never in the papers. It only even went around as gossip for a few days, and only in a small local area of people who worked at Dollhouse. The news said it was a suicide the day it happened. Then the news said it was a murder, and Mulrenin fell or was fleeing. The news available to the public went from suicide, to fell or fleeing, to shot-while fleeing, which Sprague started telling people on December 20th, and first appeared in papers around the 30th. At no point did the news ever say Mulrenin went over the balcony in a struggle. Even when I was on facebook on December 19th, the one or two Dollhouse girls who were still saying Mulrenin was thrown off the balcony, were quickly corrected based on what was in the news that day.
I immediately thought Madara had to get this story from someone who was at Dollhouse, in the brief window from December 14 to December 19th. I immediately predicted Madara must know or have contact with someone in Conway. The story was so familiar to me as what Mini-Jim had said. Madara must have heard it from someone local, and Madara probably thought she really had secret local information that the outside world was not privy to.
Do you think I was over-confident? Do you think anybody could have read the story about Mandi getting arrested with GHB, and invented the same theory as they invented at Dollhouse, that Mulrenin was drugged and went over the balcony in a struggle? Do you think I was paranoid, to assume Madara must have gotten this story from someone in Conway?
It only took me about five minutes on Google, to prove I was right. Madara lived on the same street as Chris Dahl. in the closest white neighborhood to Dollhouse. It was the same street as Dahl's ex-wife's family, Jessica Shearer. Chris Dahl's ex wife hated the new stripper Mandi, whom Chris was living with, when Chris got custody of their kid back. Jessica Shearer's family supposedly loaned Chris the $30,000 to bond out of jail, when Chris got arrested in Georgia the same time as Mandi. Madara's family was friends with Jessica Shearer's family and knew all of the details about Mandi. And they blamed evil strippers for Chris Dahl's troubles. They blamed Chris Dahl's coke slut sex slave Mandi for Chris Dahl getting arrested in Georgia.
What was really twisted, was that Madara had the same attorney as the guy she accused of conspiring in a first-degree murder. When Madara claimed Mandi confessed to her that Chris Dahl planned the robbery, Madara and Chris Dahl both had the same lawyer, Adam Reiss. Is that an insignificant chance coincidence? Or too big to be a coincidence?
Remember, Chris Dahl hired Adam Reiss the week before Mulrenin died, for his September 1 Orange County meth arrest. Madara's attorney at that time Chris Smith, worked in the same office as Adam Reiss. So it may have even been Madara's family that recommended Adam Reiss to Chris Dahl, through his ex-wife.
In February of 2017, Adam Reiss was about to sign a suspended sentence deal for Dahl's September 2016 trafficking arrest. If Dahl got arrested for anything, the suspended sentence would immediately become a real prison sentence. At the same time in February 2017, Adam Reiss drove the whole way to Seminole County to meet with Julie Madara, in place of her attorney at the time Chris Smith for her Seminole case 2014CF003700.
In all of Mandi and Scott Love's three years of court dates, which often have 200 different defendants in a single court session, I have never seen Adam Reiss work any other case in Seminole County. Even worse, Madara is indigent and has been using public defenders, whereas Chris Dahl is a cash client. So why is Reiss driving an hour each way in rush-hour traffic to another county where he doesn't usually take cases, to have a broke person invent stories about his cash client?
Adam Reiss was working for Chris Dahl, when he made the unusual trip to Seminole County to talk with Julie Madara. Remember also, when Scott was arrested and interviewed he acted like he knew nothing about what happened. But Scott said Mandi was a stripper would know James Mulrenin. He said it was Mandi and some other guy on the video at Walmart. And remember also Mandi was probably delivering cocaine from Chris Dahl to Mulrenin the night he died, and she was probably also giving all her hooker earnings to Chris Dahl while Scott went hungry. So anyone can see, Scott was looking for an angle to blame Mandi and Chris Dahl for what happened.
All three times Mandi did cocaine while having sex with me, it came from Dahl's house. Cell tower records show Mandi went to Dahl's house on the way to Mulrenin's apartment, and then ended up back at Dahl's house, the morning after Mulrenin died. So Chris Dahl immediately knew he was in jeopardy as the person who sent Mandi to Mulrenin's house in a cocaine deal, when Mulrenin got shot. And Chris Dahl knew there might not even be evidence that weirdo Scott Love was there, and Chris might get blamed for it. So right from the day it happened, Chris Dahl might have been telling his family and friends, who were also Madara's family and friends "I know what happened. Scott Love went over there to rob him, I didn't go with them. I knew about it, but I was at home the whole time."
There is a good chance Madara did not know Adam Reiss was working for Chris Dahl when she started talking to him. In her deposition, Madara said she told Reiss what she knew about Mandi's case, and asked Reiss to help her figure out what happened. I believe Reiss heard through the grapevine or from Madara's attorney Chris Smith, that Madara was talking about Jackson's case. Madara was reading crime stories about her home neighborhood in the Orlando Sentinel in Seminole County jail, before Mandi transferred to Seminole from Orange County where Mandi was arrested.
Remember, so far as Adam Reiss knows, Chris Dahl is himself the victim of lies. It started when Chris Dahl supervised a hooker named Tiffany to make a false police report against a guy named Barton. Then James Arnold, and Barton, and probably also Tiffany, told police all the meth in James' car belonged to Chris. Chris Dahl then told the court the weed in his bedroom belonged to Tiffany.
So I believe Reiss drove up to Seminole County to find out what Madara knew about the night Mulrenin died, to see if there was any chance of Chris Dahl getting arrested for drugs again. That would make the suspended sentence Dahl was about to sign, a bad deal. I believe Reiss humored Madara, and said "Yeah, Chris Dahl told me what happened. He talked to Mandi that night. Word is Mandi got a job that night with a plan to rob Mulrenin .So she drugged him and somehow won a struggle and Mulrenin went over the balcony." There was nothing about Chris Dahl drug dealing in the story Madara came up with after talking to Reiss.
Reiss then substituted himself for Chris Smith and became Madara's new lawyer in her Orange County case 2014-CF-013059-A-O. This enabled Reiss to talk to Madara about the case, and protect whatever he said with attorney-client privilege. He was still Chris Dahl's lawyer also. I doubt Madara paid him a dollar.
Reiss probably had no idea what Madara would do next. In March 0f 2017, even though she had an attorney, Madara wrote two letters by herself. One was a request for a sentence reduction, which a Google search showed was about 90% lies. The other was a letter to the Seminole County prosecutor, where Madara claimed she had secret inside information about Mandi's case. Madara wrote in her letter that the prosecutor should contact her new attorney Adam Reiss, to get the secret inside information. Reiss was the one who could best tell prosecutors the secret inside information Madara had obtained. The prosecutors went to talk to Madara at Lowell prison, and Madara said it was Adam Reiss' other client, Chris Dahl, who set up the robbery. Remember, Madara probably didn't known Reiss was Dahl's attorney.
You may wonder where the final part of Madara's story came from, Chris Dahl planning the robbery. Chris Dahl setting up the robbery was not in the police report, and it was not in the GHB story invented at Dollhouse. But there was an identical story, at Julie Madara's sentence hearing, for her Orange County case 48-2013-CF-12278-A-O. At Madara's Orange County sentencing for burglary, she whined how a drug dealer in her neighborhood - e.g. Chris Dahl - was the one who forced her to rob people. So now she just replaced herself with Mandi, in her same story.
Madara wrote the letter to prosecutors in March 2017, where she claimed Chris Dahl's attorney Adam Reiss had inside information that Mandi confessed to her. But Madara's claim was never revealed to Mandi's attorneys until it showed up in the docket as a supplemental discovery in September 2017. Two things happened almost immediately. First Adam Reiss put in a petition to seal Chris Dahl's Orange County case 48-CF-011304-O (see 2016-CF-011305-A-O) so nobody would know he was Chris Dahl's attorney when his other client Madara came up with her secret information about Chris Dahl. Second, Mandi's attorney Carrie Rentz stopped answering calls from me and Mandi's family, and requested the Seminole court appoint a some random Seminole attorney Russell McLatchey to advise Mandi on a conflict of interest. Because Carrie was also Julie Madara's attorney in three cases in Orange County in 2009 and 2013. McLatchey's office was like three miles up 434 from Carrie Rentz and co-counsel Bark.
Mandi's case was delayed month after month, while McLatchey was supposed to be advising Mandi whether to dump Carrie for having an ethical obligation to her previous client Julie Madara. Finally in January 2018, Orange County granted the petition to seal Dahl's case, and hide that Reiss was Dahl's attorney. Early in February the Dahl-Reiss case disappeared from the public records, and Mandi's case suddenly resumed. Mandi's lawyers were back in court literally within a few days of Dahl's case going off the record. Mandi's lawyers suddenly came to Judge Nelson's next available hearing date to settle the Madara-Rentz conflict.
It was obvious to me they were waiting for Chris Dahl's case to seal. I assumed the purpose must be so that Chris Dahl could safely testify how Madara's entire story was nonsense. I thought Chris Dahl was going to show up in court with Adam Reiss and tell the real story, that Mandi had known Mulrenin for a year and had been dating him, and was delivering a bag of weed or something the night he died. I thought Mandi's lawyers had been arranging all this, for Dahl to save Mandi by explaining how Madara lied, and what really happened.
Imagine my shock, when Reiss showed up in court not as Dahl's lawyer telling the truth, but as Madara's lawyer representing her story about Chris Dahl conspiring in a murder. Reiss had gotten Madara to sign a waiver of confidentiality, which meant Carrie no longer had an ethical conflict under the rules of The Bar. Russell McLatchey advised Mandi that Carrie no longer had a conflict, and Mandi kept Carrie Rentz as her attorney. Meanwhile Mandi was in isolation this whole time and could hardly make a phone call, and had no idea what was going on.
Madara signed that she understood how it was in her best interest, to sign a waiver releasing her previous attorney Carrie Rentz from any ethical or confidentiality obligations. It was never made clear how this could possibly be in Madara's best interest. It delayed Mandi's trial, where Madara hoped to testify. It freed Carrie to use any confidential information she might have, as an adversary at Madara's parole hearing or something. And because Carrie was Mandi's attorney, it let Mandi's attorneys use Madara's recorded jail phone calls about Carrie, where she lied and made up nasty stories about Carrie cheating on her husband and having sex, as evidence of Madara's bias, and propensity for malicious gossip.
It was all a complete scam. First, Carrie does not even need a confidentiality waiver. She is immediately relieved of any ethical obligation to Madara when Madara commits a crime, in this case perjury. Second, the rules of evidence do not even permit Carrie to say any confidential information obtained from Madara, they are only allowed to "impeach" Madara's credibility with specific types of public information.
I knew exactly what happened. I had already paid Carrie $80,000, and still owed her another $20,000 for $100,000 total. If her previous client being a witness disqualifies Carrie from the case, she immediately loses $100k. Meanwhile, Adam Reiss wants to control Madara's testimony, on behalf of his actual paying client Chris Dahl. It was a very shady setup Reiss was engaged in. In exchange for Rentz looking the other way, and never telling anyone Reiss was also Dahl's attorney, Reiss got the waiver from Madara which enabled Carrie to keep her $100,000. It was a quid pro quo at the expense of Rentz's client Mandi. Reiss and Madara basically paid Rentz $100,000 to look the other way.
Carrie Rentz was diagnosed with a major medical problem at this time. She had to go through surgery, she couldn't take on any new cases, she was strapped for cash. She probably had to do whatever Adam Reiss told her to do for that $100,000, to keep from losing her house and her office. And Bark is very loyal to Carrie, he did what he had to also.
Carrie knew Adam Reiss was Chris Dahl's attorney when his other client Madara made up the story about Mandi confessing. But Carrie never provided that information to McLatchey who was supposed to advise Mandi on the conflict. Carrie never admitted to knowing it whatsoever. And Mandi never knew what was really going on. It also came out that Madara blamed Carrie for bad legal advice, which Carrie provided in exchange for visits to a nail salon owned by Madara's mother. Madara thought her previous conviction was Carrie's fault, and wanted to sabotage Carrie as revenge. But McLatchey never got that information to advise Mandi, and Mandi never knew.
Mandi's lawyers never brought up Adam Reiss' name at trial. They said the jailhouse witnesses were lying about a "Chris Dahl" being involved, he was some irrelevant person who had nothing to do with anything. They asked lead Detective Sprague on the stand at Mandi's trial "Have you ever known of anyone named Chris Dahl to be in any way involved in this case?" No.
Of course the jurors went straight back to the jury room, and punched the last number Mandi called into their tablets. One juror was using a tablet right in the jury box during bench conferences, and everyone was too strapped for cash to risk shutting down the trial over it. So I am sure those girls who were using their devices the whole trial, saw Chris Dahl's name pop up for the phone record as the last person Mandi talked to before going to Mulrenin's house. So Mandi's attorneys covered for Reiss, the jury found them to be liars hiding Chris Dahl's involvement, nobody cared that the jurors broke the rules all day and lied about it, and Mandi got two life sentences.
Mandi's lawyers would say they did it for two reasons, 1) A Seminole jury will convict you of first degree murder for hanging out with drug dealers, and 2) Mandi's lawyers were afraid not just Madara, but Chris Dahl, would testify against Mandi to protect himself. If that is the case, Mandi should have known what was going on, before deciding whether Carrie had a conflict of interest. Mandi never heard anything about any theory that Chris Dahl might testify against her to protect himself from drug charges, and that is why they had to protect Reiss and Dahl in exchange for a confidentiality waiver worth $100,000. To this day Mandi imagines Chris Dahl is her best friend in the world and would never do anything like that.
I could not contact Mandi in isolation to tell her to dump Carrie for accepting a bribe. So I wrote her a letter, and I wrote a complaint to the Florida Bar. Mandi was sedated 23 hours a day in isolation, she thought I was joking. The Florida Bar told me it had all been settled appropriately by Mandi's conflict attorney McLatchey. They said the court approved of it, and I had no right as a third party to complain or have contact with Mandi in jail. What The Bar did not know, is that the relevant information of Madara's attorney being Chris Dahl's attorney, and Madara being motivated by a grudge against Mandi's attorney who did legal work in exchange for facials from Madara's mother, was never shared with McLatchey to advise Mandi properly in light of the full facts.
Carrie had her own conflict, having just been bribed by Adam Reiss by allowing her to keep her $100,000 by getting the confidentiality waiver from Madara. And Adam Reiss had a huge conflict, so that there is no way he could advise Madara honestly, without being influenced by his obligations to Chris Dahl. But Russell McLatchey never knew what was really going on, and never told Mandi. It was just a setup between attorney friends, at the expense of their incompetent indigent clients.
It also came out in the recorded jail phone calls that Madara was reading news stories not just about Mandi (including the ones from Jose Baez's receptionist) but also about all the other inmates in jail, and was a nasty gossiper. But who would assume otherwise of a 15-time felon alcoholic known for burglarizing family heirlooms and stealing her best friend's car?
Mandi had sex with Santa Claus-looking degenerates, and gave all the money to Chris Dahl. To pay his mortgage or his property tax or whatever. Because Chris Dahl has a sad dog that doesn't bark, and Mandi is a child sex-abuse victim with a brain injury. So that was Mandi's psychology, she fucked old guys so she could give the money to Chris Dahl.
Then on Wednesday December 7, 2016, Chris Dahl took the money Mandi gave him, and hired the office mate of family friend Julie Madara's lawyer, local libertine Adam Reiss. Adam Reiss then went to the Publix on Central Boulevard, and bought organic sprouts for his bucktooth airhead sugar baby, with the money Mandi originally got for having sex with decrepit hippie scumbags just like him. And he spent the rest of Mandi's earnings on gas to Seminole County in place of Chris Smith, to coach Julie Madara to lie and say Mandi is a murderer, to protect Chris Dahl's suspended drug sentence he was about to sign.
Mandi Jackson gave her body to pay Adam Reiss. He then turned around and used that money she produced, to falsely accuse her of murder, and unjustly take the life of a young girl whose body paid for his groceries. Sick and obscene members in The Florida Bar!
If Mandi's lawyers had their way, Mandi would get two life sentences and nobody would ever know Madara's lawyer was Chris Dahl's lawyer. Nobody would ever know that's how Madara got her gossip story from Conway, while the real story, the truth about Dahl and Mulrenin's drug dealing, remained hidden. Except the jury probably saw that name "Chris Dahl" pop up in the phone record as the last number Mandi called, and thought Mandi's lawyers were lying that Chris Dahl had nothing to do with it, and Madara's story was true.
I had some more thoughts a year after I first wrote this, on why Carrie Rentz never protested on the record that any evidence was suspect, and only gave subtle hints (except the Dollhouse video which was probably altered by Big Mike not police).
Star witness Julie Madara claimed Chris Dahl set up the murder. But lead Detective Ben Sprague claimed on the stand at trial, to not even recognize the name Chris Dahl. Sprague also claimed to not recognize, or know the name of, the dog walker who let his murderer into the building.
In a rational world, the lead detective would have looked up the name Chris Dahl, immediately after Julie Madara said Chris Dahl set up the murder. And in a rational world, Sprague would have immediately seen Chris Dahl's attorney Adam Reiss was also Julie Madara's attorney, the same attorney Madara's letter said to contact, for Chris Dahl's attorney to tell Sprague what Chris Dahl did. Was Sprague willfully blind?
In a rational world, Lead Detective Sprague would realize Mandi's attorney Rentz took a bribe to hide that Madara's story came from popular local attorney Adam Reiss. And in a rational world, Mandi's attorney Rentz would then keep quiet about Sprague and Athaide - and Rentz's local friend Smolarek - faking all the evidence.
So maybe Rentz had her own secrets - and she knew her peers knew her secrets - and that is why she did not reveal any of the secrets of her peers, how the evidence was altered and staged. Maybe it was not an explicit quid pro quo, but an influence on her decision making. People who live in glass houses don't throw stones.
4. MALETTA YOUNG - 2017 to 2019
One of the many bizarre events in this case is Maletta Young's attorney, at the time she made her deal to testify against Mandi, was also Scott Love's attorney, Kenneth Hamburg. Scott Love's other attorney Michael Nielsen, told me Hamburg was doing the day-to-day busy work in the case, while Nielsen was busy with another trial across the state. So Hamburg would have immediately been paid as much as $100 an hour, to write the motions that one of his clients Maletta Young's statements, were unreliable hearsay and could not be used against his other client, Scott Love.
Maletta Young's false claim that Mandi confessed, also made it harder for the state to offer Mandi a fair deal to testify against Hamburg's other client, Scott Love. Of course Hamburg had an ethical obligation to withdraw from one of the cases, and specifically to withdraw from the case where he knew his client was lying. Hamburg withdrew from Maletta Young's case. But only after he already got paid twice for what she said, shielded his own client from what his other client said, and saved Love from Mandi being offered a fair deal by having Young say what she said.
Maletta Young is an interesting character. She had been getting arrested for drug felonies at least as far back when she was 20. In 2017 when she was 30 and she was already a convicted felon, she got arrested for an aggravated home-invasion battery which she set up. Before that case was even settled while she was out on bond, they kicked in her door and caught her dealing fentanyl, heroin, cocaine, meth, suboxone, amphetamine, lorazepam, and codeine. She also had a loaded gun and extra bullets in a drug baggie, as a convicted felon and habitual offender. For all that, the Seminole County prosecutors let her out without posting bond, and gave her two years.
At Maletta's deposition, she said she had to testify against Mandi because she couldn't set people up buying drugs as an informant any more. She would have liked to do more buys, more police stings to get more reduction in her sentence. But it was not possible. Everybody knew she was an informant. Maletta saw it posted on the Seminole Clerk of Court website, that she was working with police. And she assumed everyone else saw her case there also.
Maletta said in her deposition she was not doing the same things any more, she was not talking to the same people, she was not selling drugs. Drugs were just not a part of her life any more, and she could not buy them because no drug people would talk to her. The material publicly available about Maletta, which said she was an informant and which people read about her on the Seminole Clerk of Court website, had ruined her ability to be a drug user.
Judge John Galuzzo set Maletta's two-year sentencing for Friday October 5, 2018. He must really be impressed with his own voice, because he gave Maletta specific instructions "DEFENDANT MUST APPEAR ON TIME TO NEXT COURT DATE" and "DEFENDANT IS NOT TO BE ARRESTED OR COMMIT ANY NEW LAW VIOLATIONS." So on Friday October 5, 2018, Maletta showed up late, and Judge Galuzzo told her to come back Monday. And then on Monday Maletta came back and got her two year sentence, and was taken straight from the courthouse to the jail.
And then on Tuesday, someone tipped off the jail that Maletta brought drugs to her sentencing before Judge Galuzzo, and had smuggled them into the jail. They caught her with five small balloons that she was carrying around the jail in her mouth, and two large balloons in her cell, containing buprenoprhine, naloxone, meth, alprazolam, and fentanyl. While those charges were pending, Maletta told her boyfriend to mail her suboxone in the jail which he did, and she got caught and charged for that also. You could not hope to outdo Maletta Young's persistence and determination to commit drug felonies over the years and put peoples live at risk. For all that, including dealing fentanyl in the Seminole County jail, they gave Maletta another three years.
Maletta's unique story about what Mandi confessed to her, seemed to fit with her unique circumstances. Of the people who claimed Mandi confessed, Maletta was the only one who was out on bond. The story Maletta told, seemed to come from the clerk web site and from Google, not from Mandi or Madara. Maletta's story largely contradicted what the other girls claimed Mandi confessed.
MALETTA: Mandi went to Rachel's to meet the manager and rob him.
Mulrenin had not been the manager at Rachel's since like 2001, when he was famously arrested for racketeering and prostitution. He was the manager at Rachel's North primarily from 2010 to 2012. All that was available in Google if you searched for Mandi's case, and then searched the victim's name, James Mulrenin. Back in 2017 when Maletta came up with her story, Rachel's was the main strip club name that was in Google for James Mulrenin. For his racketeering and prostitution, that he was known for. But if you talked to Mandi instead of talking to Google, she would have told you Mulrenin was the manager of Stars and Dollhouse.
Unless Mandi somehow knew Mulrenin primarily from when she worked at Rachel's for an extended period the previous summer. But if that is the case, then she already knew Mulrenin, and this idea the other jailhouse witnesses tell, that she came in as a stranger and Mulrenin liked her on the first night he met her, would be false.
MALETTA: They beat Mulrenin up.
Mulrenin went down five floors in the dark, hit a railing with his legs hard enough to bend it, smacked his head into a wall, and landed on the ground below. One of the other jailhouse witnesses said Mandi confessed to somehow seeing Mulrenin hit his head on the railing, five stories below in the dark, despite original witnesses saying Mulrenin's balcony was clearly lit and he was alone. Through all that, the only spot on Mulrenin's whole body that had no marks, was his face.
You and I know when people beat someone up, that means you punch him in the face. Maletta knows that too. Maletta's victim had lacerations, a broken nose, and a possible fractured jaw, from being struck in the face with hands and feet. You think 100-pound Mandi is going to beat up 250-pound Mulrenin with body blows? You think Scott Love holding a gun is going to punch Mulrenin in the stomach to get him to comply? No. But Mulrenin's face was not marked.
Under the law, "assault" is just threatening someone. Most people don't know the legal term for actually striking someone is not assault, it is "battery." That's what Maletta Young did to her home-invasion victim. Maletta looked Mandi up on the clerk website, and saw Mandi was charged with "burglary of a dwelling with an assault or battery." So Maletta just assumed Mandi did the same thing Maletta did in her "aggravated battery" case. Both Mandi's charges and Maletta's charges included the word "battery," And Maletta's victim was beat up. And Maletta assumes assault means beating someone up.
But James Mulrenin was not beat up. Maletta made a rookie mistake, after reading Mandi's charge on the Seminole Clerk website and comparing it to her own.
MALETTA: Mandi had done the same thing with her boyfriend in the past, where "she used to go down and get johns and he would come in and rob them."
Did Mandi leave those johns a resume with her name on it?
Mulrenin was not a john. He was her boss. He was a pimp. He was in her same social circle. He had her real name, and her father's real name and phone number as her emergency contact, on a job application. Did Mandi tell Maletta why cell tower pings had her at Mulrenin's house four times just that week?
There are many common traits of strip club managers. They are aggressive and strict with the girls. Robbing a strip club manager would be like pickpocketing a bank robber. Hookers steal watches from fat drunk guys from Minneapolis, passed out in $400 hotel rooms. Hookers do not steal from pimps. Mandi has been robbed by drug dealers and pimps, and she would not expect to be able to rob one easily.
You would think if Scott had been sticking a gun in guy's faces to get more than the standard $250 hooker fee, he might have been able to afford his own phone to at least coordinate when to come in. I wish Mandi had robbed some johns, instead of trying to be nice to people in Seminole County.
MALETTA: Mandi left something open so Scott Love could come in and rob Mulrenin.
This was alleged in two places 1) in Mandi's police report which Maletta said at deposition she had in the room with her in jail, and 2) in the arrest affidavit which was on the same Seminole Clerk web site Maletta blamed for exposing her as an informant. In both places the allegation was proved wrong. It eventually came out the freight door was not inadvertently left open as police wrote. The undisclosed video showed Love came in behind a dog walker who swiped the door open. Police also wrote they believed Mandi left the door unlocked so Scott could gain access to the apartment when she and Mulrenin went into the garage. But the deleted video showed Mandi entered the garage ahead of Mulrenin, so Mulrenin would have been the last one out his door. The video showed Mulrenin walked faster than Mandi walked in heels, and ahead of her.
If Mandi were inside the apartment, it would be "she unlocked the door" or "she opened the door" not "she left it open." Detective Sprague's theory that Mandi and Mulrenin had to leave the apartment so that Scott could get in, never made any sense.
MALETTA: Mandi pretended to Mulrenin she would come over for sex, but her true intent was to rob him.
How is Mulrenin going to believe it, when a hot 21-year-old blonde girl shows up as a complete stranger, and says she will come over to his house and have sex with him? Mandi was not a desperate 30-something hispanic single mom. I remember that second night I fucked her, she had that "too good to be true" t-shirt. Guys never believed Mandi would really have sex with them, until she proved it. Not even Chris Dahl that first night she went to his house and did a mountain of cocaine. Everybody the first time they met Mandi was thinking "What is the scam, what is the trick here?" She was a flawless young girl. A lot of guys missed out because they never would have guessed.
The only way Mulrenin would believe a promise from Mandi to have sex with him, and not be suspicious or skeptical, is if he already knew who Mandi Jackson was, from everyone else at the strip clubs who knew her. I know her. And I knew Mulrenin. To me it is not credible that the girl who never says no, who is proud of being up for any sexual challenge, and the guy who is known for aggression and date rape and having sex with 100's of new employees, could spend two hours alone in an apartment drinking vodka together, and not have sex. Mandi does not lead a guy on. Maletta had the wrong person.
In Barbara Mellinger's deposition, Mandi's lawyers asked if Mellinger saw Mandi dance on stage or do a private dance. They asked if sometimes dancers don't get paid for dances, and if Mellinger saw Mandi close out her funds and get paid that night. They were talking about dancer dollars which strip clubs sometimes sell customers with credit cards to pay for dances. Mandi's lawyers have no idea what a private dance is or about credit-card chargebacks or how strippers get paid. So obviously Mandi told her lawyers she did a private dance for dancer dollars, and didn't get paid that night. Barbara Mellinger said none of the girls got to cash out their dancer dollars that night.
I already told you how forcing girls to come back the next day for their money at Stars, was creating an opportunity for Mulrenin to make them earn it a second time. So it is most likely Mulrenin told Mandi if she came over to his house and brought him some cocaine or weed from Chris Dahl, he would give her the money she was owed for her dancer dollars. It was most likely Mulrenin who thought he was tricking Mandi with his veteran scheme that he used on 1000 girls already.
But Mandi did not look like a girl who would go for that trick. She had a BMW, not a bus ticket. Remember, this is the girl who Chris Dahl thought looked too young and innocent to try to have sex with the first night. And I thought she was an underage sex sting. Mulrenin would not waste his time with this scheme to get a girl to his house, he would not come down to the curb looking eager like he did on video, unless he had actual information that Mandi was a lot easier and more willing than you would guess if you didn't know her.
Mulrenin's confidence that getting her to this house would pay off, could not have come from Mandi saying she would go upstairs and have sex with him that night. Or he would not have needed a trick to get her to the curb first, and come down with a drink and talk to her through the window, and only then to get her to come upstairs. He probably knew from the previous Saturday night when she came, exactly how it would go. Maybe Scott was not there Saturday.
If Mandi promised sex (and Mulrenin was some gullible old guy who never met a girl before), Mulrenin would not need to go through the drink-at-the-curb thing. They would just drive right in. And if Mandi didn't promise sex, and Mandi really was a stranger, there was nothing whatsoever to make Mulrenin believe some random 21-year-old in a BMW is going to come the whole way up I-4 and fall right into his "come upstairs for a minute" ploy. Mulrenin had to know her and not have been promised anything by her, the opposite of what Maletta claimed.
When Mandi first heard about Maletta's claims, she was in isolation, half sedated on drugs, and in desperate misery. She said Maletta "said shit I didn't even say." As well as I can ever tell from just her tone that Mandi is telling the truth, Mandi was telling me the truth when she said that. Why not put me on the stand? Or if Mandi lied to me, then wouldn't she also lie to a stranger in jail like Maletta?
Did Maletta just make up that stuff about Mandi robbing johns? I think that was Mandi's reputation among the "mean girls" in the jail. I warned Mandi in January of 2017 not to say things to sound like she was tougher than she was, or those jealous bitches would use it against her.
Mandi refused to talk to me for a year after she got arrested at my house, even when I was putting hundreds on her jail commissary account. Finally in May of 2017 she called me, and I paid for her lawyer. But she didn't tell the girls in jail she fucked me 57 times. She told them I was some stupid old guy whom she basically tricked and took my money. Sugar babies and girls who cheat on their boyfriends are looked down on in the jail.
After the girls in jail read the newspaper stories, Mandi was famous. Girls would come in and spend the night in jail, and they would see the little blonde girl who murdered the strip club manager. They would say "Are you the one who murdered the strip club manager?" And it is my theory that Mandi would say yes. Because she often asked if I could mail more pictures of her. Because she met friends in jail who wanted a picture of her to keep. I think they wanted the pictures not because they were friends, but because Mandi was a famous murderer. So I stopped mailing them.
It was August or September 2017, around the time of the hurricane, Mandi called me from jail. And she started saying mean things, like I was too old to have sex and I was so old I needed Depend adult diapers. And I could tell there were girls listening in the background and she was putting on a show of being mean to me. Because it was embarrassing for her that she had to depend on an old sugar daddy giving her money for sex. And she would prefer they think she bullied me and robbed me, than that she had sex with me for money. Me or Mulrenin.
Then Maletta got arrested and came into the Seminole County jail on September 13, 2017. So she was either one of the girls who was listening in the background when Mandi said she tricked me and took advantage of me, or she heard it from another girl who was. Mandi kept it a deep dark secret that she liked Mulrenin and cheated on Scott. And the girls in jail thought she really was swindling old guys, in my case $100,000 for her lawyer, an amount large enough to drive a year of gossip among broke girls in jail.
Maybe Mandi told the girls in jail "This guy thinks he is going to get sex for paying for my lawyer. But he is not." Reality was the opposite. Mandi did not want me to pay, for fear I would demand something in return.
You can spend 1000 hours reading what I have written here, and go look at all the evidence, and you tell me if Maletta is telling the truth that Mandi confessed to her. The jury is expected to figure stuff out like this after hearing about it once. And with 99% of what I have written here hidden from them based on the rules of evidence. And then sent into a room to remember and sort out everything they just heard. It is a designed scam, to give the jury mindbenders which no honest person can really expect them to sort out and make sense of. It is just a scam to insinuate guilt and confuse the jury.
Maletta ended up not testifying for the prosecution, and I don't know the reason why. Mandi's lawyers almost brought Maletta over to testify at the trial as part of their defense.
There was some talk of whether Maletta would be brought over to the courthouse in the same bus as the other jailhouse witnesses, and whether they would have a chance to talk and get their stories straight. Prosecutor Stone made sort of a joke that he did not want Maletta talking to the other girls.
So whatever Maletta was going to say in the end, it does not seem like it would have been favorable to the prosecution.
5. KAYLEE SIMMONS - 2017 to 2019
Kaylee Simmons was the 20,000th person to accuse Mandi Jackson of having GHB. The previous 19,999 were wrong. In all my time in Miami and Orlando, I have never even heard of anyone having GHB. Guys would drug girls every night on Ocean Drive in Miami. You would see girls stumbling along the sidewalk, with two or three guys following halfway up the block. A handsome rich kid with a Ferrari even tried to drug my niece. But that was rohpynol. These places are full of meth, cocaine, heroin, pills, mushrooms, LSD. But I never heard of anyone in Florida having GHB.
Kaylee Simmons had five felony convictions. She was facing up to life in prison, starting from age 18. Though realistically she probably would have only got 10 1/2 years. Another girl in jail told her she could get a lower sentence if she got "information" about other people's cases. Kaylee also heard from Mandi about how Julie Madara made up a completely wrong story about Mandi to get a sentence reduction.
Kaylee offered the prosecution "information" on a total of four cases. One, Tina Poirier, told Mandi that Kaylee read her police report in her cell. Another involved Kaylee's co-defendant. His lawyer told Mandi's lawyer Bark that at her deposition, he caught Kaylee lying "50 times, 50 different ways." Kaylee told Mandi that Kaylee was lying about what her own co-defendant did, to seem innocent. Kaylee knew from her own case what it would take to tie a young girl to what a guy did. Another of the four cases Kaylee claimed to have "information" about was settled before Kaylee testified. At the end of it, Kaylee got a 6 1/2 year sentence.
Mandi told me Kaylee has like a mental disability. She can't say certain words like "enemy" or "facade." And her mom is a drug addict and her uncle(?) raped her when she was a tot. I talked to Kaylee on the phone once or twice, and there was something off like she is half retarded. Like she can remember the minute and second she was born, but has no idea what humor is. She says she was born in Palm Beach and grew up near Orlando. But her accent and way of talking is something so backwoods and provincial and just creepy, it could not even really exist except in a movie.
Kaylee is also proud of being a lesbian, and extremely violent. Like she just cuts loose and starts violently beating on people in every jail they put her in. It has nothing to do with her being a trafficking victim, her brain is just wired up wrong. It's sad and unfortunate. She is on her own planet.
The creepiest moment in Mandi's trial was when they put Kaylee up there in like John Lennon glasses. Jail has not treated her well. She is probably on meds, and she looks like she is 16 going on 60. She looked blankly out of those crazy glasses and said "I've been my whole life in here!" This was around Halloween, and she was creepier than any haunted house character.
Kaylee knows she is a zoo animal. All the defendants in Seminole County are. Kaylee said her goal in life was "to be an independent woman." Like she heard that line somewhere and was reciting it, with no idea what it meant or what planet she was on. It was just sad to see the prosecutors drag this little brain patient around in chains, and coerce her to lie for their amusement like a monkey.
Kaylee said so many things about Mandi's case that make no sense, I could write a whole book about it. It was like she was talking about an imaginary friend, not Mandi. But rather than rewrite the entire book here, I will give you a sampling of what Kaylee originally claimed on tape Mandi told her, right after she claimed Mandi confessed to her.
KAYLEE: The plan was for Scott Love to come in apartment and rob the manager
Did you know in Seminole County, carjackers can get out of prison just by saying fourteen words?
KAYLEE: Scott Love drove Mandi Jackson to the Dollhouse
Love has no car, no license, and literally cannot drive. He has tickets for improper backing, for crashing in his own driveway, and crashing a motorcycle a block from his house. Mandi is a former amateur cart racer with the top lap time at K1 Speed who owns her own BMW. Gorewitz watched Jackson arrive at Dollhouse, park, and walk in, and said Love was not with her. Cintron saw Jackson get her car keys back from Gorewitz at the end of the night. Jackson was recorded on video arriving, parking and leaving, and Love was not with her. The guy Kaylee was arrested with did drive Kaylee to meet male customers when she was a hooker.
KAYLEE: They (Mandi Jackson and Scott Love) had gun; it was the same gun Mandi Jackson got in trouble with in Georgia; At deposition, Kaylee added that police in Georgia gave Mandi the gun back and it was a black Glock
The gun which Mandi admitted Scott Love used to shoot Mulrenin was a 38 revolver.
Mandi's car was packed to the top of the seats when she got arrested in Georgia. Probably because they put everything from the rental car that crashed in her car. Monroe County Sheriff's deputies watched for at least 30 minutes in the rain while I unloaded all the stuff from Mandi's car at the impound. She had stuff from her passenger James, a backpack with oversized clothes and a Sunpass beloning to T, and a dog and dog food belonging to Chris. One of the many things in her car when she got pulled over was a semi-automatic handgun. I think it might have been like a Ruger 9mm.
Mandi's passenger in Georgia James Arnold was a convicted felon. She also had a dog named Blue in the car. James Arnold told Mandi he was a registered sex offender. He told her to say the gun in her car was hers because if a registered sex offender got caught with a gun, they would both get arrested and Blue the dog would go to the pound. Police arrested Mandi and took the gun because they mistook a liquid in her car for the illegal drug GHB. When the lab report said the liquid was not an illegal drug, they dropped all charges and returned Mandi's car.
Mandi never asked for the gun back because it was not hers, and she has no interest in guns. A Monroe County Sheriff's deputy specifically told Mandi, in my presence, that they would not give her the gun back because they did not think it was hers, and did not have any evidence to show it was hers. At the time, I was a little surprised the police had such a confident opinion the gun did not belong to Mandi. Years later I realize Mandi's dad probably called them to complain, and explained clearly the gun did not belong to Mandi. Monroe County Sheriff still has that gun, and they can tell you it was not a black Glock or a revolver.
I once watched Mandi discuss with her mother, her fear that her pimp might shoot her whole family. They mentioned that Mandi's dad should be safe because he had a lot of guns at his house. I was curious and asked what type of guns her father had. Mandi had no idea, to her they were just guns. Mandi was never someone who thought a particular brand of gun, such as a Glock, was cool. Mandi's mother dated police who probably carried Glocks, and Mandi did not think they were cool or have any interest in them. Mandi killed people with her pussy.
KAYLEE: At Walmart self checkout, Mandi Jackson signs "fuck you"
It doesn't exist.
I have written software for retailers to get a signature using an Ingenico credit card terminal, store the signature in an Oracle database, and transmit it to the processor and cardholder's bank. I know from my experience writing software to comply with payment rules, that this signature is carefully stored by all three parties, and the retailer is required to store and transmit the signature to get paid. The record of the cardholder signature can easily be retrieved. All lawyers in Mandi Jackson's case, defense and prosecution, agree that no record of Mandi Jackson signing "fuck you" exists. The "fuck you" signature never happened. Kaylee's statement has no bearing on reality.
KAYLEE: Manager's apartment is "gone through" (at deposition Kaylee said "they're looking throughout the apartment" and at trial she said "go through" the apartment)
According to police, Mandi and Scott were in Mulrenin's apartment for almost two hours. According to Kaylee, they only did “a line” before Scott supposedly came in "as soon as they got to the apartment."
Smolarek photographed storage boxes still sitting packed on the top shelf of Mulrenin's closet. Nobody took them down and ransacked them. None of the storage areas, such as the laundry area, are disturbed. Nobody lifted the mattress to check under it. According to patrolman Uzzi the bed was made when he came in. Neither the bed drawers, nor any other drawers or cabinets, were found open when police entered. Nobody took the weed or the long pipe, or the white iphone, in plain sight on the kitchen counter. Nobody took the $20 bill, two bags of cocaine, and a pill, off the first shelf in the first kitchen cabinet. Nobody took a large amount of weed and cocaine in a mug on the second shelf of the first kitchen cabinet. Nobody took the large pile of cash in a tin in the kitchen cabinet. Nobody took the weed in the freezer. Nobody took a second white iphone, or the ipad, on display in the kitchen.
Remember, Mandi was portayed as broke and desperate, Neisha Cintron said she had no money. Police found something like $6 when they arrested her. Police photographed weed in Mandi's car. The Dollhouse video shows Mandi smoking weed with Cintron after closing. There was weed on Mulrenin's kitchen counter, but not in his blood test. If Mandi was doing drugs with Mulrenin - using that rolled up $20 bill to snort cocaine, using that pipe on his counter to smoke weed - she would have known these things were in his kitchen. But she did not take them.
KAYLEE: Mandi Jackson drove her car to manager's apartment; Scott Love hid in back of car
Jackson is supposedly seen talking to Mulrenin at the curb through her driver's side window, before he supposedly walks around and gets in her passenger seat. Jackson is seen driving into Mulrenin's building with Mulrenin in her passenger seat. Mulrenin is 6"1 and the seat appears to be way back. Smolarek photographed the car a few days later, with the passenger seat way back, and the back seat cluttered with junk. It appears the dress Jackson bought from Neisha Cintron last thing before she went to Mulrenin's house, and the stripper shoes she wore at the club, are still on top of the junk. Love is 6' tall. The back seat of a BMW 328i is small. There is no way Love could hide in the back seat and not be visible to Mulrenin as they drove into his garage.
According to the video provided by police, Love arrived and entered Mulrenin's building separately from Mandi. So Love would have been out of the car before the car arrived at the building, and before anyone could have seen him. Therefore, Love would not have had reason or occasion to hide in the back seat.
There is a video that is best interpreted as Scott Love walking into the fifth-floor garage, searching for Mandi's car, and finding it. That is how it is described in one of the video timestamp files typed by police "Lofts Powerpoint.pptx". It says Scott "walks around appears to be looking for the BMW".
KAYLEE: Mandi Jackson parked her car, went to manager's apartment, and left door unlocked.
At least 30 minutes after Jackson parked and entered, Mulrenin and Jackson left the apartment, and entered again. So it makes no sense Jackson would mention parking her car, in a story about leaving the door unlocked when they entered much later. Mulrenin walked with Jackson every time police video shows them entering, so Mulrenin would have operated his own door for Jackson to enter. Evidence is Love did not come in until almost two hours after Mandi parked her car. Kaylee makes the two hours between parking and Love coming in, and the entries and exits in between, vanish.
KAYLEE: They (Mandi Jackson and the manager) did a "line" and went to balcony; Mandi Jackson kept manager busy on balcony; Scott Love entered apartment and went into a room; Mandi Jackson saw Scott Love poke his head out of room; Scott Love comes out of room and says it's a stickup;
You don't want to stick Mulrenin up on the balcony, where neighbors can see and hear. So you would not take him to the balcony to get ready for a stickup. You want to stick him up in the kitchen. It is a tiny apartment with a tiny balcony, that is separated from the living room by glass. So you can see the front door clearly from the balcony. Mandi has no way to know when Love is about to enter. And Love has no way to know when Mulrenin is on the balcony. Because Love does not have a phone, and Mandi did not call or text anyone while she was there.
There are enough empty bags in a mug in the kitchen, to suggest they did a lot of lines, And evidence is Scott Love did not come in for almost two hours. Certainly Mandi did not keep Mulrenin busy on the balcony for two hours. So why wait for two hours, and how does Love know two hours later when Mandi takes Mulrenin to the balcony?
When did Mulrenin stash his cocaine, the rolled-up $20 bill used to snort it, and the plastic card used to cut it, in the kitchen cabinet? Did he stash it before stepping a few feet away to the other side of the glass on the balcony? Why stash the cocaine to go to the balcony, when he can still see the kitchen where the cocaine was stashed, from the balcony? If Mulrenin didn't stash the cocaine, why did Scott or Mandi stash the cocaine and the rolled-up $20 bill used to snort it, instead of taking it? Why does Mandi need Scott to come in, when she can just take the cash after Mulrenin goes to bed?
KAYLEE: Mandi Jackson received a text from "Chris" informing her that the manager of the Doll House had money and drugs and was a "good lick"
When you say "the manager of the Doll House" rather than "Jim" you are talking about a stranger.
How could Chris Dahl know if Mulrenin has money or drugs in his pocket or house on a given night? Are you really going to apply for a stripper job with your and your father's real name, work all night, bring your boyfriend to another county at 5AM, hang out drinking vodka and smoking weed with a known date rapist for two hours, and stick a gun a guy's face where people on all sides can hear, based on a rumor that a complete stranger has money or drugs?
Did Mulrenin report his illegal drug inventory to strangers? Was Chris Dahl psychic to know Dollhouse was about to have a good night, or Mulrenin has money in his closet in another county?
All evidence and background I know, says Chris Dahl was Mulrenin's drug dealer, and Mulrenin profited from Dahl selling drugs inside Dollhouse. A drug dealer would know when a customer has drugs and cash. But all evidence and background I know, says Jackson delivered drugs to Mulrenin's apartment four times just that week. So Jackson would know firsthand if Mulrenin had drugs and cash. Chris Dahl could not tell Jackson something that Jackson would already know, and Chris Dahl would not know.
Let's suppose Chris Dahl went to a party at Mulrenin's apartment, and saw cash and drugs. Mandi's cell tower records have her at Mulrenin's apartment four times that week. Mulrenin's job as manager at Dollhouse would have nothing to do with it. It would be "Jim, the guy whose house we have been at all week, the guy whose house we have gone to already without any of us ever working a single day at Dollhouse, has money and drugs. If you can go to his house or meet with him one more time, like you already have all week without ever applying to Dollhouse, you can steal it."
Remember from the cell towers, Mandi did not go out and do her strip-club pattern on Sunday. On Monday the strip clubs are usually empty also. But Barbara Mellinger said there were some big customers at Stars on Monday. And Mellinger also revealed two years later what she previously kept secret for some reason, that Mandi also applied to Dollhouse on Monday. Chris Dahl's girlfriend Dalindy worked at Stars. So it is possible and perhaps even likely, that Chris Dahl texted Mandi on Monday, and said there were some big customers at Stars and she should come in and strip. So Mandi immediately came looking for Mulrenin who was her friend with benefits, and would be the only way she could get hired for night shift and start working that same night. Mandi's lawyers have hinted Mandi worked at Stars on previous nights. If so, maybe she got there too late on Monday and they wouldn't let her work, so she went looking for her friend Mulrenin.
When I told Mandi how Kaylee said "good lick" Mandi said "What? Good what? Lick??" It is not just Mandi. Nobody has ever heard the term "good lick" being used like this. I could not find it on Google.
KAYLEE: The manager liked her (Mandi Jackson)
This is the idea that Mandi walked in as a complete stranger, and Mulrenin liked her enough to hire her, start her late, and bring her back to his house within a few hours of meeting her for the first time.
The manager did two things that are never done, especially not by an angry control freak like Mulrenin: 1) He never let a new girl start night shift instead of day shift, 2) He never let any girl, and in this case a new girl, start work after arriving after 9:00, in Mandi's case around 11:00. Neisha saw Mandi change dresses under the unusual direct supervison of Mulrenin. The other employees saw Mandi and Mulrenin sitting together all night. The video has Mulrenin kissing Mandi.
Mulrenin was also known as the manager of Stars, including by Michelle Ervin who processed his rental application at The Lofts. Jackson spent time at Stars with Chris Dahl and the manager around Halloween of 2015 when she applied for a job. Chris Dahl was a domestic partner with Stars bartender Dalindy Luckett. Another strip-club employee, Ignacio Ernesto Ramos Moran, rented a room at Chris Dahl's house like Mandi did. Stars/Dollhouse are run as a single business, where paying at one gets you into the other. Cell tower records show Mandi at Stars/Dollhouse for 26 hours just the week Mulrenin died. Cell tower records show Jackson looping between drug dealer Chris Dahl's house and Mulrenin's apartment four times just the week Mulrenin died. Jackson was familiar to many employees at Stars and Dollhouse. Mandi listed stripping at other clubs on her application, where Mulrenin was familiar with most of the managers at those other clubs.
Do you think with all these details, and the hundreds of hours Mandi and Kaylee spent together as best friends, Mandi might have mentioned to Kaylee why her cellphone was at Mulrenin's apartment four days that week, and what she was doing for 26 hours at Stars/Dollhouse that week?
I've seen Mulrenin take advantage of broke girls for sex, their first day at work. That's what it looked like to me, anyway. That was day shift, and there was no public kissing. Mulrenin did not give Mandi the same slut-off-the-street treatment.
My understanding of Mulrenin's policy is pretty simple. If you are going to give your number to guys you meet in the club, or if he even hallucinates you are giving out your number, or touching their dicks through their pants, or meeting them in the parking lot or whatever, then you are required to have sex with Mulrenin also. And then if Mulrenin brings a rich guy and tells you to sit with him, you are going to sit with him. And you are going to tip Mulrenin at the end of your shift, I would guess at least $50. Mandi didn't fit that arrangement, She didn't meet any other guys that night. She supposedly spent the whole time with Mulrenin. She didn't owe him sex, she didn't look vulnerable.
It is not credible to me, that Mandi was a stranger to Mulrenin when she came to work that night. The person who knows why Mandi's phone was at Mulrenin's apartment four times that week, is the person who knows Mandi. That person is not Kaylee, it is Mulrenin.
Mandi liked Mulrenin better than she ever liked me. She is like a dog that eats garbage. Poisoned garbage. Disgusting. And I am not the only person who thinks so.
Let's pause for a quick inventory of girls who knew some inside information in this case and had a potential to be influencers, and wanted Mandi gone: 1) Chris' girlfriend and Stars bartender Dalindy, Mandi had sex with her boyfriend, 2) Chris older sister Carrie who OD'd in 2019, blamed Mandi for being a bad influence on her meth-dealer little brother after he bought Mandi a drink and served her a mountain of cocaine when he was 32 and she was 20, 3) Chris ex-wife Jessica who is friends with Julie Madara whose kid moved in with Chris when Mandi was living there, 4) Scott's ex girlfriend who was jealous of Mandi, 5) Barbara Mellinger who lost money because her manager got sloppy with the town slut, 6) and now her best friend Kaylee. Most of these people and especially Dalindy probably knew Mandi was no stranger to Mulrenin, but they wanted her gone.
On the other side, the only people who care that Mandi didn't do what she is accused of are me and her family. When it's your kid, I won't be there.
KAYLEE: They (Mandi Jackson and the manager) took the party back to the manager's apartment; it was a high rise;
Video shows Mulrenin coming out to the curb with a drink to appear more inviting, and Jackson parking perpendicular to the garage entrance to meet him. He talks to her from outside the car briefly, through her open car window. She then does a partial U-turn to enter. This suggests neither Mandi nor Mulrenin was certain she would go upstairs when she arrived. So it was not already set up back at Dollhouse, that she would go up to Mulrenin's apartment.
Mandi does not use the word "party" and I confirmed that she doesn't, on the recorded line at the jail. Like "good lick" this is Kaylee's creepy dialect.
In Barbara Mellinger's deposition, Mandi's lawyers implied Mandi told them she did a private dance for dancer dollars. Mellinger said none of the girls got to cash out their dancer dollars that night, just like I remembered from when Mulrenin took over Stars. Neisha Cintron said Mandi had $0 when she got her car keys back. Most likely Murenin held out the promise of giving Mandi the money she was owed for her dancer dollars, as a strategy to get her to come to his house. And Mandi had no choice but to come because she was broke, and no choice from Scott but to bring him.
KAYLEE: Manager was tied/bound with duct tape (Kaylee Simmons thinks Mandi Jackson said duct tape) behind his back; Manager cursed out Mandi Jackson and got up; Scott Love shot the manager in the leg and said next time bullet will be in head; Manager breaks free and goes to balcony
The manager would have been something like lying down sideways on the sofa, according to the bullet path claimed by police. So the manager would have been talking to the back cushion or the wall, and definitely facing away from Love, when Love shot him.
Are you really going to break free of duct tape, under threat of being shot in the head after you have already been shot, and jump five storeys, when you could just give them the money? If Kaylee's story were true, Mulrenin would not have made it to the balcony. There would be a second bullet missing from the revolver, and Mulrenin would have a bullet in his back.
Remember, this is all with an open balcony door next to other balconies, plus apartments above and below, on both sides, and across the hall. Russell Songer and Denise Smith saw Mulrenin alone at the railing and said "Don't jump, don't jump." Mulrenin's neighbor heard the name Denise and someone asking for help in the field after Mulrenin went over. But nobody ever heard Mulrenin call for help like someone was going to kill him.
I have done a recreation of the duct tape found at the scene. It matches duct tape wrapped twice around the thigh of a man Mulrenin's height and weight, with a loose tear end, and blood in the spot that matches the entry and exit wound on Mulrenin's thigh. The repeated duct tape loop circumference is significantly larger than anything I could produce binding a large man's wrists. So this duct tape was used to attempt to stop the bleeding on Mulrenin's thigh, while he was seated facing forward in the recliner, with his bleeding left leg elevated on the left side.
KAYLEE: Julie Madara was testifying against Jackson; Mandi Jackson and Julie Madara had same lawyer
This is one thing Kaylee has a clear and accurate understanding of.
KAYLEE: Police messed up; they dumped out drinks that contain GHB
I have been all over the strip clubs around Conway for years, and nobody ever had GHB. Jackson has never had GHB in her life. There was no GHB. The idea that Mandi Jackson ever had GHB was a complete invention of police in Georgia. There was zero GHB, and the charges in Georgia were dropped because there was zero GHB. But this GHB story went into Google, and has been regurgitated by idiots talking about Mandi Jackson for years now.
You and I know butanediol G is Mandi's favorite sex-related placebo. She told her mom on a recorded call from the jail, that G is the drug Mulrenin was on. Mulrenin had boxes showing he got viagra and testosterone straight from India. He could have gotten butanediol from the same web sites. If he did, Mandi would have driven straight over there like she did to my house, when I got some butanediol.
If Mandi Jackson had G in her drink, she was DEFINITELY there to fuck him, not to rob him.
But Mandi, and everyone else I have heard of taking butanediol, takes it intentionally right in their mouths. Mulrenin was a sex addict, with three different kinds of needles in the drawer under his bed. He was already known to be on caffeine, testosterone, alcohol, cocaine, and viagra. So I assume he would want to see the butanediol go straight into Mandi's mouth like she herself wants it to, so he could fuck her like a piece of defrosted chicken like I did.
There is an old Orlando Weekly article that mentions GHB at Rachel's, back in 2001 when Mulrenin got charged with racketeering. It states "Some of the dancers in the sex shows were high on tequila shots and GHB, a liquid drug that provides a temporary euphoria similar to ecstasy." Does that mean it actually happened, or happened more than once? No. But if Mulrenin's girls were using GHB like weed all day, back before there was a moral panic over it, that might explain why Mulrenin likes to take G in drinks. For him, the placebo effect could come from putting it in a drink the same way they did with actual GHB back in the old days.
When I told Scott's lawyer Michael Nielsen I was familiar with Mulrenin, he asked if I knew anything about him drugging girls. I said I knew he demanded sex from every girl who applied and most ran the other way. Some didn't run away and had sex with him, supposedly a large number (though still not enough to fill a strip club) but I had no idea what happened behind closed doors or how it happened. All I knew is he was a wooden person with stunted social development who did it with coercion not charm. But there could be some short latina single moms who were attracted to him.
The point is, Scott must have told his lawyer that Mulrenin drugged Mandi. I know Mandi likes the G on her tongue to feel it burn. If the G really was in their drinks, that was Mulrenin's own meme, maybe a habit he developed back in the old days, or from girls who actually did drug customers in the strip club. Nobody else in Conway takes G that way.
Since the effect of G is primarily psychological and it doesn't actually do anything, the effect is strongest when you go through the actual ritual of putting it in your mouth. The whole point of a placebo is lost if you don't know you are taking it. Putting it right in your mouth is half the excitement. Unless you are reenacting a ritual from back in the old days when Mandi was in diapers, GHB was still legal, and Mulrenin's mustache was only 20 years out of date.
But I know this is Seminole County, the land of fantasy, where cute little girls slip GHB into the drinks, against the wishes of their aging sex-addict bosses who want nothing to do with crazy drug sex.
KAYLEE: The defense is or was that the manager tried to drug her (Mandi Jackson)
There is no tried. It is certain that Mandi Jackson was fucked up out of her mind on drugs, as was her boss who paid for the drugs and gave them to her, with the intention to get her sloppy and have sex with her.
But for all Love knows, Mulrenin drugged Jackson against her will. Who knows what Mandi told him. It is a fact that Mulrenin lured many young girl with drugs like rat poison. He had two bags of weed and a pipe in his house, and his smoke detector was disabled, but he had no weed in his own blood test. The weed was for the girls, like the straws. This is just business as usual with old guys and strippers. Is there a world where old guys and strippers don't do drugs and fuck? Mulrenin lured Jackson away from Love with drugs. It is pure craziness to deny this.
The half white pill with Mulrenin's hastily stashed cocaine suggests Mulrenin could have drugged Mandi against her will. Mulrenin had cocaine, caffeine, alcohol, and viagra in his blood, nothing that looks like a white pill. So maybe that pill was only chopped into the cocaine he gave to Mandi. You might say half a pill is not going to incapacitate anyone. But many pills are constructed to release drugs slowly, over 12 or 24 hours. If you chopped it into powder, and snorted 12 hours worth of drugs straight into your brain at once, it might be enough to knock you down.
Of course police didn't test the pill, because it couldn't help them prove Mulrenin was shot while fleeing. But it was capsule shaped and the half had a “U”, suggesting the missing half contained 5mg of codeine. Mulrenin had no codeine in his blood, that pill was used to drug Mandi. And, having just taken her nightly meds when she got off work, Jackson probably fell asleep by accident on Mulrenin's sofa and was there when Scott came in.
If Mandi had been on anxiety meds back when I knew her, she probably would have passed out, her pimp would have had to knock eventually, and I would have shot him. The anxiety meds were a bigger difference than the difference between me and Mulrenin, or the difference between her pimp and Scott Love. She was on anxiety meds the day she took G and we moved her furniture and she passed out briefly. But unlike Scott Love, her boyfriend was at work that day. So she had time to wake up and hurry home.
Having had sex with Mulrenin, Jackson had to blame something. So she probably told Love it was the drugs that made her do it, and that she didn't really like Mulrenin, she truly liked Love. Jackson would prefer not to tell everyone "Yeah, I cheated on my roommate with this old Gary Ridgway impersonator because I am a coke whore and I needed a job. And he had a cool suit." Just getting right down to the facts, it really was the drugs! She has CTE and needs weed! Mandi wasn't at my house that night, because I don't do drugs.
Meanwhile police found tampons on top of the junk in Mandi's room. So poor Love probably could not even get lucky that week.
KAYLEE: Chris Dahl "has a small dick" (this came out at Kaylee's deposition, I think it became "tiny" at trial)
My best guess is it was maybe Sunday October 18, 2015 when I reported Mandi's pimp to the DCF. And she met the mystery white guy "Chris" with the manager at Stars around Tuesday October 27 or November 3, 2015. It was about a week or two after that, when she came to my house with a cut inside the top right of her vagina. She said she cut herself accidentally with her own fingernail. She told me I had to fuck her left to right to steer clear of the cut.
I asked "Did some big guy tear you up? Was it Chris?" This is before I saw he was a little Jewish-looking guy with the gayest mohawk in human history.
She said "No, his dick is exactly average size."
Remember, Chris was the guy who gave Mandi "sex the way sex was meant to be" for the first time when she took G. Dalindy Luckett said something similar when she lived with Chris. Can you do that with a small or tiny dick? Would Mandi call someone who did that small or tiny, to a female friend? (Full disclosure: Two women with like 20-year fraud sentences both claim to have rung Mandi's bell the hardest with no dick.)
I have a theory about the quality of Kaylee's facts. The Seminole County jail commissary used to sell a large dried pepperoni. But they discontinued it, supposedly because the girls were using them as dildos. They continued selling the same pepperoni in a smaller size. They stopped selling the bigger ones right about a month before Kaylee claimed Mandi made her confession. So Mandi probably held up the smaller-size pepperoni and made a joke like "We don't have Big Jim Mulrenin any more, but we still have little Chris Dahl."
Kaylee is on her own planet, and probably does not understand jokes like this. But it is very valuable for the jury to hear whatever comes out of Kaylee's crazy head, to determine whether Mandi Jackson was a principal in an armed robbery.
That's enough of Kaylee's statements that she claimed Mandi told her. You get the idea.
Now you and I know Kaylee's claimed confession is full of nonsense that directly contradicts physical evidence, and should never be allowed in a courtroom run by serious people. The jury has one week to hear and remember testimony from more people than they will ever remember, and none of it is written down for them to refer back to. To say this is a distraction, doesn't even begin to describe how it undermines the ability of the jury to think straight and try to make honest sense of the real evidence. But the jailhouse witness is a magical death ray to kill a young girl like Mandi, and here is why.
Kaylee can basically go up on the stand and tell her story straight through. The prosecutor only has to prompt her by saying "What happened next?" a few times.
But to show how Kaylee's story is wrong by comparing it to the facts like I just did, you have to go through dozens of witnesses and pieces of evidence all over the place. You can't just say things in court, and insist they are true. You have to have a witness say each thing, and the witness says it is true.
So by saying Kaylee is a witness of what Mandi said, she can tell any story straight through. But you need a witness to dispute each problem with her story, and say it's not true. It normally takes an entire trial to tell a whole story, using 20 witnesses and 100 items of evidence over a period of days. But a claimed confession can tell the entire story in 120 seconds.
Suppose Kaylee says "The sky was yellow and the sun was green."
Then you have to argue to the judge to let you introduce an expert witness. "Professor Fassbender, can you tell the jury what you do for a living?" I am an astrophysicist. "And what does that mean?" I study large gaseous bodies. "Like the sun?" Yes, technically the sun is a medium-sized gaseous body, but it also includes plasma. "And what color is the sun?"
Prosecution: "Objection, your honor. Professor Fassbender is an expert on astrophysics, not on colors or human vision."
To say Kaylee is wrong, Scott didn't drive Mandi to Dollhouse, you need a witness from the Department of Motor Vehicles to say Scott's license was suspended, and introduce a document that says so. And you need the valet parker Gorewitz to say he saw Mandi drive up and Scott wasn't in her car. And you need manager Big Mike to say this is the authentic video from Dollhouse. And then you can show a video clip from Dollhouse of Mandi driving up, and walking in alone.
So you need to go all over the place with dozens of witnesses and documents, to dispute something Kaylee recited straight through in a single, easy-to-understand story. By the time you are done, you will have told Kaylee's story a second time. The jury can't remember all those pieces of evidence, or which piece of paper you compared to which thing Kaylee said. All they can remember is her story.
And that is why even though Kaylee's story is total nonsense, the prosecution reduced her possible life sentence to 6.5 years, in exchange for using lies to take the life of her best friend, Mandi.
When DNA analysis was invented, a lot of people on death row were found to be innocent. The Florida Supreme Court wanted to know how that happened. They discovered that something like 50% of death-penalty cases exonerated by DNA, involved jailhouse witnesses. More than 140 people have been exonerated in murder cases involving jailhouse witnesses since 1966, when the Supreme Court allowed the scam. People don't want felons voting except in the one area felons are best at: taking the lives of the innocent.
Do you think there was any penalty for the jailhouse witnesses who committed perjury to take a person's life, or for the prosecutor who suborned the perjury, in a death penalty case that was overturned by DNA? Of course not. The prosecutor's peers are not going to prosecute him for victimizing an innocent person in such a heinous manner. And the prosecutor is not going to prosecute the jailhouse witness whom the prosecutor himself coerced to victimize other people in jail. Because they are a magic death ray for lazy crooked prosecutors, to use total nonsense in the courtroom, to take an innocent person's life.
The authors of the fifth amendment did not hope to form a nation where criminals escaped justice. They envisioned the type of crooked prosecution used against Mandi Jackson. But people who run Seminole County courtrooms are not on the level of the people who wrote the fifth amendment. And prosecutors who use coerced confession scams today, when they have real evidence like fingerprints and video and DNA, have to be 100 times lazier and more crooked.
The obvious solution is for the legislature to create a new independent Police and Prosecution Commission to punish morally sick members of the executive branch who suborn perjury and victimize the innocent. But of course the Florida Supreme Court came up with a worthless judge-oriented solution, which is all they could do themselves in the judicial branch. They recommended the use of a jury instruction.
The Florida Supreme Court said to put somewhere in the fine print, that jurors might use caution when listening to felons. But then the prosecutor stood up in front in front of Mandi's jury and said Kaylee Simmons would never lie, because if she did she would get life in prison. She is the only witness in the whole trial, with such a strong disincentive to lie. It is completely false, and the opposite is true. But the jury is never instructed with the truth, that there is no penalty for perjury, and prosecutors actually like it and use it and suborn it all the time.
All you need is for another girl to read Mandi's arrest report in jail. And that girl can recite in two minutes, what would normally take the prosecution 10 witnesses and 50 pieces of evidence to present. People out on bond don't have this problem, they go home and get their relatives to say they were in Kentucky the night of the crime.
But girls in jail without bond have no control over their body or possessions. They can get their cell searched, or thrown in isolation, or transferred any time. Their discovery documents can be thrown in a pile in the day room, and all the girls get into it. And then a girl says I am looking at 50 years, what can I do? And a guard, or another girl tells her just recite what is in those documents, and say Mandi confessed it. Suddenly the prosecution doesn't need a dozen witnesses, just one.
Of course it doesn't even look like Kaylee actually read Mandi's report, at least not very diligently. Too many things are wrong. When I told Mandi that Kaylee agreed to testify, Mandi asked me "What did she say?"
Mandi's tone was not like if you just drank from a mystery jar and dropped dead. "What was in the jar?!?" It was more like if you took a bite of candy and threw it in the trash. Mandi expressed a sincere puzzled curiosity. "What did it taste like?" Mandi was really puzzled to know what Kaylee could have claimed Mandi told her.
Me: You told her you took the party back to Mulrenin's house. But I know you don't use the word party.
Mandi: Yeah, I don't say party.
Me: She said Scott drove you to Dollhouse that night.
Mandi: NO. Yada yada yada...
Me: She said you signed "fuck you" at the Walmart self checkout.
Me: You told her Mulrenin was a good lick.
Me: Good lick.
Mandi: Good what?
Mandi: What does that mean?
Mandi told me stories about Ishnar "Nish-Nosh" Lopez-Ramos, the Kissimmee mommy-killer in jail. She said when Lopez got angry at another inmate, Lopez joked that she was going to get a plastic bag, like she did to her murder victim. Mandi told me this story in a tone of jealousy. How can Lopez go around threatening to put bags over people's heads, and nobody claims she confessed? Where Mandi didn't say anything, and everyone is saying Mandi is the one who admitted to it.
Do I think Mandi could have told Kaylee that entire nonsense story to humor her, and claim to be an armed robber just like Kaylee? Absolutely not. But I think Mandi could have said "Yes, we robbed him, so now you tell me what you and your boyfriend really did in your case." It's possible.
They spent 100's of hours together, and I think Mandi told Kaylee bits and pieces of things that happened. But the day at the end of their relationship when Kaylee claims Mandi confessed the whole story at once, came after Mandi found out Julie Madara said Mandi confessed, and after Maletta Young said Mandi confessed. And after Mandi told Kaylee the stories the other girls made up. And after Kaylee's lying defense in her own case had reached its dead end.
Do you think Mandi didn't learn to keep her mouth shut after two alleged confessions already? Or do you think Kaylee is the one who learned from the other two girls? If you are thinking about the answer to that question, you have fallen for the scam. I already showed you everything Kaylee said was nonsense.
I cannot overstate how creepy it was, to see Kaylee's attorney Mira Berry grinning in the back of the courtroom, while Kaylee recited nonsense statements that blatantly contradict physical evidence, for the purpose of taking her best friend's life. Of course Mira Berry is one of two well-known female defense attorneys in the area. And it pleases her to see her own client do better at the expense of Mandi's attorney Carrie Rentz. It's all sport, the clients are dirt.
Every lawyer in Seminole County has a psychology that the defendants are subhuman and not worthy of rights, they are just worthless hamsters to be pushed around like 10-cent poker chips. It is some kind of class-system psychology, where the lawyer girls think they are little princesses and the defendants are their pigs on a farm.
I already saw Mira Berry grinning at me 18 months earlier, before I even knew who it was. She is a creepy woman who is unhappy about something, and has some kind of axe to grind. If you are at all pretty, I recommend against hiring her. Or maybe God just cursed her with a face where she is grinning like a smug idiot all the time.
Often the passage of time is needed to gain perspective, and appreciate the historic nature of events, which at the time seemed almost nothing. The use of statements of Kaylee Simmons in a murder trial, and the money and the energy and the lives spent over statements that came from the mouth of one of the the most useless and unfortunate examples of 46 chromosomes ever created by God, and the weight they were given at the intersection of so many people's lives, is one of the lowest moments in recorded history.
Kaylee was a child sex-abuse victim and underage hooker, but somehow managed to attract interest from people with an even lower use for her. She went from being used by some old guy in her family, to being used by strangers in motel rooms, but that wasn't the bottom. Then she met the government employees of Seminole County, and that was the bottom. That is as low as a person can go, the most a human being can be demeaned at least in the United States.
At some point in 2019, Mandi's lawyers asked for the recorded phone calls of Kaylee Simmons. I guess the State Attorney's office was angry about it. Because while the state is obligated to provide them, the statements of Kaylee Simmons are beneath anyone wasting their time on, other than for those patronized rubes on the jury to take the life of another brain-damaged tramp. It is beneath the importance of the crude mammals that work in the state attorney's office to bother with the phone calls of Kaylee Simmons.
I remember the day some mediocre woman came behind me in Seminole courtroom 5D, to yap with displeasure over Mandi Jackson's lawyers requesting the recorded statements of Kaylee Simmons. Going to that courtroom, and witnessing an adult female employed by the taxpayer, expend such calories over nonsense statements with no bearing on reality of half-retard Kaylee Simmons, is lower than going to the zoo. Going to that courtroom, and observing such low behavior of a woman concerning her day with the statements of Kaylee Simmons, is like watching cows eat grass from an airplane.
Committing crimes against young girls like Mandi Jackson is as common as rain in human history. But there is always some rational incentive, whether sexual, or the general incentives of war. And the pursuit of common incentives such as kidnap and rape, was weighed against the risk of being burned alive. Coercing nonsense statements from a half-retard to keep a sick fat girl locked in a box, for no incentive but only from being dumb as bricks and evil, I believe is a unique event. Committing this against a young girl Mandi Jackson for no incentive worth recording but only stupidity, is an aberration in human history, a new low point.
It is well suited to the participants. For some people, winning a football game in high school was a high point. For some people, getting a job feeding monkeys at the zoo is a high point. For people like Mira Berry, who really did nothing for Kaylee Simmons who was left to fend for herself, being a bystanding stooge for the coercion of perjury from and against indigent incompetents, is probably the high point of a life and career.
Half of these registry attorneys are just a name, just a person with a copy of Microsoft Word and that name at the bottom of some legal templates, which name means your Constitutional right to an attorney has been satisfied. They are just menial laborers on the Seminole Railroad. Do not let your innocent children wander into Seminole County.
6. THE FOUR MOTIVES - December 14, 2016
There are many things about a person like Mandi, that jurors aren't going to understand from their own life experience. They don't know how the girls Mulrenin exploits for sex, always have another guy waiting somewhere and he knows it. They also have no experience with how young girls make older guys wait outside.
College guys who date girls their same age, married people, "normal" people who report for jury duty, do things as a couple. If you visit a friend, you visit together. The closest thing they might know to the world Mandi and Mulrenin lived in, is picking up a kid at school. It's not like when you go pick up your fiance at the airport, and you wish you could go out to the gate and meet her. When you pick up your kid at school, you wait outside.
People with an ordinary life experience like an ordinary couple, people who have never had sex with a stripper or hooker or a girl less than half your age, can be too quick to assume Love and Jackson are colluding, even though Love and Jackson are never seen on video together. Jurors have no idea what they are looking at. They have never been there. The key to guessing what Love is doing there and his state of mind - his motive - depends on the timing. Just like if someone saw you on video outside your kid's school.
My first experience with a younger girl making me wait outside, was when I was 27. That 19-year-old girl Sparrow picked me up hitchhiking in her red Ford Explorer with her Brittany Spaniel named "Brit." She stayed at my house for a few days, we had sex a bunch of times. If you are a normal college hippie, you are going to feel sort of like a couple at that point. You sort of expect to do things together.
She had been telling me about her best friend forever, Jen, who lived in Golden. So on our second day after she got her car, she brought me on a road trip to visit her bff Jen in Golden. It was two hours away. She called Jen from a pay phone up the street or something, and then we went to Jen's house. But I don't really know, because Sparrow surprised me by telling me to wait in the car!
They apparently talked about some very important life and boyfriend issues. Like Jen had a sugar daddy apparently, but Sparrow didn't know they broke up. And Sparrow was there to tell Jen she broke up with her fiance, and was living with her new older guy, me. So Jen knew something about older guys.
The whole trip took at least nine hours. We left midday, and got back at night. At the end of it, I could not confirm that her friend Jen even existed. I never laid eyes on her, and she never saw me. I am not sure why Sparrow even brought me. Probably for fun and companionship. But also for gas money, and to make sure my door wouldn't be locked when she got home.
I had normal girlfriends prior to that, long-term girlfriends, where 100% of our friends were friends in common. Normal girlfriends want to introduce you to their friends, and know if their friends approve. If not they will dump you. Girls who screw much older guys know people won't approve. They do things in private and march to the beat of their own drum.
I went to Sparrow's parents house. Her dad dropped a giant nickel-plated revolver on the kitchen counter in front of me. I am not sure why. Her mom dropped a strange line completely out of the blue. It was something like "Sparrow's father never did anything inappropriate when she was a child, we gave her a good home!" I took it to mean he fucked her. And she kept it secret.
The next day, Sparrow and Brit and I went to visit an older girl in Fort Collins who was a model. I was looking forward to meet a model girl. Again, Sparrow was driving. Again, I was told to wait in the car, out in the street in some bland suburban development. Sparrow didn't want the older model girl seeing me.
Maybe I am geeky, maybe I seemed too old. Maybe Sparrow was really meeting with a guy, but I don't think so. I think she was smoking weed in there. They didn't want to share with me. She was smoking her friend's weed, but bringing me in would be imposing too much. I guess it was probably around the 30-minute mark, that I started to get maybe a little irritated. I was tempted to go knock. But I didn't.
So after only three or four days of knowing a younger girl, I had lurked in a dark car at night in Golden, and I had sat casing a suburban house in Fort Collins with drug use going on inside. What if a crime happened in there? I would be in prison right now.
I was an unemployed 27-year-old man. Would you believe that an adult male looking suspicious in a dark street was there because a teenager told him to wait and he has no idea why? And he was not even buying drugs, not doing anything illegal? I know from experience, if you are doing that and a house gets broken into a block away while you are minding your own business, you get arrested.
Sparrow was the younger of two sisters. Sparrow had paranoid hallucinations. She thought people on the radio were talking directly to her, her parents were following us, and there was a video camera hidden in the radar detector I put in her car. But none of that affected her ability to be bossy and strict, and tell me to wait outside when she visited people
For whatever reason, girls do this. And do it more, when there is an age gap. A juror who has been a pea in a pod with someone his same age he met in college, doesn't know. He might get angry at a girl who did this strange and inappropriate thing. Like I said, I was 27 when this first happened to me. Maybe Scott Love is a little cooler than I am, or more pushy, or just didn't meet a younger girl, and it first happened to him at age 30 with Mandi. Maybe it never happened to you.
But you have to understand this behavior is as standard between young girls and older guys, as schoolkids who leave their parents waiting outside at a friend's house. It does not indicate there is anything sinister like a robbery going on. It is more a sort of compartmentalization, or elevated privacy, than a trait of dishonesty.
Marrying someone your same age and getting divorced is not taboo. Hanging out with an older guy who treasures you and forgives you and won't disappoint you is taboo. So keeping taboo male friends hidden becomes a habit, and part of a hidden subculture.
When I met that first Russian stripper and she lived with me, we used to go around South Beach on foot. So it was harder to make me wait outside. But if I came in the store she always got angry. The person behind the counter at the phone store would say "Oh, you are together, you know her?" I explained "I'm her friend" and she got angry. I tried "I'm her roommate" and she got angry. I tried "I'm her boyfriend" and she got angry.
After I threw her out and she went back to LA, she called me one time. She said she was with a guy or using his phone or something, and the guy she was with was "something like a friend." I was 10 years older than the Russian stripper, the same amount Scott Love is older than Mandi. If Neisha saw Scott that night she met Mandi at Dollhouse, would Mandi have said Scott was "something like a friend?"
Relationships like this are not likely to end well. But the jury has to accept that even though they seem strange, they exist. And it is not illegal to compartmentalize your life and your taboo relationships with guys who are "something like a friend."
My niece used to make me wait outside when I drove her around South Beach. She even disappeared with my car for two whole days before I got angry. If you are a geeky uncle, you might at least have that mainstream experience. My same-age girlfriend left me outside Nieman Marcus for two hours. I am sure many people have that mainstream experience. Did you get angry left waiting? Did you go into the store and fetch her? Were you there to rob the store?
You are allowed to wait in a department store parking lot. Are you allowed to wait in a suburban street? How about inside an apartment parking garage?
My sister introduced me to a beautiful young girl in New York City, 10 years younger than me, who had an unattractive secret. She was desperate to get a job, meet a fireman, and have a normal life. I drove her to a guy's apartment in the West Village, a young guy wanting to be TV producer. I let her visit with him for two hours without interfering.
I sat in my car with my dog, next to like a fire hydrant in the West Village, for two hours while she did who knows what in there. Every minute after 30 minutes I was itching to go knock. But I knew how important it was to her. Someone who has kids will know an experience like that, waiting outside while a child does something that only the child thinks is important.
A stripper from Showgirls Cutler Bay stayed at my house in 2008. I picked her up after work. She said she met a nice old guy with a lot of money, would I mind if she went to visit him? She implied it would pay the rent money twice. But I had plenty of money to pay my rent. I don't need someone who is staying with me to get some old guy's money. Disgusting! So I said no way!
But girls really get a sense of self esteem from earning some money, and from bringing joy to someone who likes them. More than from me just giving her money. So she said how about if you drive me there, and you can wait in the car while I visit with him in the hotel for only like an hour. And you can wait outside the whole time. Disgusting!
I said no. But I had money and a car. If I didn't have the car, there is not much I can do. If she has the car it is going to happen anyway. And I would have to accept going with her as the best deal I can get.
So suppose I didn't have the car or rent, and I therefore had no choice but to ride along while my stripper roommate visits some old guy at a motel in South Miami. Does that mean I am there to rob him? Is the old guy being taken advantage of, or tricked? How long would I wait before I went and knocked? What would the old guy do if I did knock?
What if after two hours, that stripper came out and told me "The old guy didn't give me the money he promised me. So we are stuck in this parking lot with no gas to get home. Plus I borrowed $75 to bring him a bag of cocaine, and I owe that also. Gosh my pussy is sore." If it was you, are you sure you wouldn't run in there and split his head open? Would that make the stripper an accomplice to a burglary?
Mandi always left guys waiting when she had sex with me. She left Primo at Popeyes and Burger King and Walmart. She left Chris Dahl and his friends at Publix. She left her mom and little brother in the street outside her house. She left poodle boy at her mom's house, and Tywaun at Ale House.
In all cases where it was another guy, meaning in all cases except her mom or her little brother, Mandi hid it from me. She didn't want me to know there was a guy waiting. In almost every case, her phone would start lighting up at some point, when the time got a little stretched. It lit up the most with Primo, who knew she was having sex with me, after an hour or two. Other than Primo, and even with Primo sometimes, she didn't want the other guys to know what she was doing with me. And almost always, they did not know.
From my personal experience waiting for girls like Mandi, I am able to know two things:
1) Mandi has pattern of making guys wait while she is with another guy.
2) The motive of the other guy is revealed by the timing. When did he arrive? How long did he wait?
That is why it is so unfortunate in Mandi's case that the video was tampered with, and they didn't get Mulrenin's last cell tower ping, for example. Because they don't want to reveal the true timing of when Love went in. But for jurors with a different life experience it wouldn't matter anyway, they would still have no idea what they are looking at.
When I first heard of this event, I immediately knew what happened. Mandi left a guy up the street at Denny's probably - just like the very first night I met her at Starlite - and somehow the guys didn't stay separated. I remembered that look of terror when I told her I got to Starlite early, and Mandi thought I could have seen Captain Primo, or we might even have almost bumped into each other. And my best guess, is Mandi had that same look of terror, when Mulrenin came face-to-face with Scott.
My first surprise came when I read somewhere that Love went straight in after Mandi. He didn't wait 15 minutes, or 30 minutes. To me, this indicated Love was already angry when Mandi kicked him out of the car. He got out of the car and immediately did exactly what she didn't want him to do.
Love then did what Mandi could not have expected he would do, given the building looks very secure, and unit 515 seems very remote, from the outside. This timing indicated a jealous and angry boyfriend right from the start. My best guess was Love then somehow fell asleep in the lounge or stairwell for over and hour. He then woke up cold, angry, out of cigarettes and weed, and out of patience. It is a little hard to make 90 minutes disappear, but I did not yet have any reason to doubt the story about when he first went in.
The next surprise came when I saw the video, with Love entering before Jackson. It made no sense in any scenario. In a robbery, for example, she would drop Love off and make sure he got inside the building, before telling Mulrenin to come outside. Jackson would enter past the garage camera slowly, to give Love time to hide or do whatever he was doing. She drove fast. This video could not be any well-ordered plan to rob.
At that point, my best guess was that Jackson dropped Love off at Denny's. He then ran across the empty lot to watch her enter. And he arrived before her because she had to drive around a one-way street or something. This plan indicates a curious Love, who wants to see and lay eyes on the person Jackson is meeting with. This might indicate a suspicion that Jackson has been cheating on him, but Love is not sure with whom. Maybe Love expected to see me, the violent stalker known as David, come out of that building.
The next surprise came when I saw there was a dog in the garage much later, and also one at the freight door when Love enters. And both video clips were hidden by Lead Detective Sprague. If that is the same dog, then it would match Jackson's pattern perfectly, as well my own experience. In this case Love would have waited a while before entering. 20 minutes is about as long as a guy might be willing to wait outside in the cold with no car to sit in. Or he might try to find Jackson's car almost immediately, so he could wait in the car.
This would indicate a patient Love, who just wants to wait for Jackson. But the time grows too long and his mind grows reckless, wandering around the building. And eventually the sun is about to rise, people are leaving for work, and he has no choice but to knock on Mulrenin's door. Maybe Jackson fell asleep on Mulrenin's sofa.
Or if the video timestamps are way off, maybe Love came much later. Maybe he was somewhere else, and borrowed a motorcycle when someone told him where Jackson was. This would indicate a jealous Love, with an intent to trespass and do harm to both Jackson and the guy she was with. Or at least tell them who is boss.
If you are married, and you never met strippers, it will be alien to you. You will say why is this guy waiting outside? These two lovers are setting this third guy up.
Even if you know better, you will still be lost as to Love's motive unless you are sure about the timing. Which you never can be, given the extreme efforts to originally provide a video with no timestamps. And to substitute instead a conspicuously large number of files containing notes of the missing timestamps.
So whether Love is angry, curious, patient, or murderous, depends on how long he waited and where. But a juror who has no experience with young girls making older guys wait, no knowledge of how Mandi Jackson keeps guys separated, and not even a video timeline he can trust, cannot possibly figure this out.
And so a young girl is given two life sentences based on hunches from aggressive felons paid to lie.
Four years later, I am ready to abandon the idea faked by police, that Scott arrived with Mandi. I know 100% the video was edited and Scott got there later. I believe he got there much later, after 6AM. So how did Scott know where Mandi was, and how did he get there?
Theory, shot in the dark: Dalindy Waugh. Dalindy worked as a bartender at both Rachel's North and Stars. She was married to a guy in Seminole County. She therefore knew Mulrenin, and where he lived. I believe I saw her getting out of zippy little car, maybe a black Honda Acura, parked by Chris Dahl's house. So Dalindy still went back and forth to Seminole County every night. Dalindy claims to be an addict. So when she started working at Stars, she met Chris Dahl and later moved in with him.
So when Mandi left Scott at Chris Dahl's house to go cash out her dancer dollars at Mulrenin's house, Dalindy knew where Mandi was going. Dalindy probably hated Mandi, because Mandi's goal in life was to marry Chris Dahl and snort all his cocaine. That was probably also Dalindy's goal. Dalindy may have also had some kind of history with Mulrenin. So when Mandi fell asleep on Mulrenin's sofa or her phone battery went dead, and Scott needed to get to work, Dalindy was perhaps driving home to Seminole County from Chris Dahl's house. Dalindy drove Scott to Mulrenin's house and sent him up to knock on Mulrenin's door. Dalindy was then in a position to shape the gossip about what happened, and get rid of Mandi permanently.
I even saw the Dalindy car, and Mandi's car, parked in the same spot across from Chris Dahl's driveway, on different days, the week before Mulrenin died. That is two girls, and one parking spot.
Just a theory. But it cures all the things I was not previously able to explain.
I know what some of you might think: Dalindy set up the robbery! There was no robbery. There is zero evidence of a robbery. There is tons of evidence there could not have been a robbery. The only evidence of a robbery is the jailhouse witnesses. Jailhouse witnesses are a known scam. Or a known miracle! And these jailhouse witnesses told stories that were impossible in all ways.
7. SCOTT LOVE MORALS - 1986 to present
Mandi is so accustomed to being shadowed by a pimp, I always just assumed she left Scott waiting up the street or something. But the idea has grown on me that Scott showed up later on his own. There is no question the video timestamps are some nonsense cooked up by police.
Guys are motivated by morals to do a lot of different things. A suicide bomber believes he is doing the right thing. Male supporters of Bernie Sanders for President think charging rent is immoral and landlords should be in prison. Even a guy who robs a bank, may believe he is fighting economic injustice, or subverting a conspiracy of the rich. I knew a guy who stole clothing from stores all over South Beach because he thought they were immoral, but would not steal from Walmart.
There is evidence Scott Love is a common morals-oriented person. I saw in some of his family-court documents, and on his facebook page, how he is a social person who likes to attach himself to groups, and parrot the things they say. It could be the local church, or a political party, or a biker gang or militia. He wrote a soliloquy on facebook where he argued he had been treated unfairly. When he was arrested for test-riding the motorcycle he was working on without a license, he told the cop that Hillary Clinton is the real criminal.
So what might have Scott believed, that would lead him to think knocking on a strange guy's door with a gun would be justified? You have to begin by believing Mandi is vulnerable, and an irresponsible person could do permanent damage to her. Mandi is not like a normal drug addict or bipolar person. She is much simpler than that. She is like a flag in the wind that can go from happy to sad and back in a few minutes. But it is easy to confuse her with a schizophrenic person, or a drug addict, or a suicidal person, who are all fragile and can take a bad psychological turn and have their lives ruined from one night of rule-breaking.
There is also the idea that Mandi was being sexually taken advantage of, which is very much agaist the law in Florida. Scott may have found out she was using this drug "G." Mandi said everyone in Conway knows what G is. I know my neighbor from across West Muriel street knew what G is. And Mulrenin's valet parker "Mini-Jim" knew what G is. But Scott is not from Conway. And Scott does not seem sexually oriented to me like the people at the strip clubs. One of Scott's girlfriends claimed he was into pills at some point. A person who is into real drugs and not a sex worker, would likely not have much use for this substance "G" whose benefits are mostly myth like a fad supplement.
Mandi pretty much describes me as a jerk who spends all day walking his two dogs. Pretty much the last things I ever did with Mandi, so far as Scott knows, are give her G and have sex with her, attack her with a machete, and lie about her and get her arrested at my house. So when Scott sees a guy walking two black-and-white dogs go into the building where Mandi is, he follows him in. Then there is a dog walker in the garage with Mandi, and next thing Scott is knocking on Mulrenin's door.
People who don't know what G is seem to quickly assume it is GHB, and Scott could easily have become confused like anyone else. So if Scott somehow knew Mandi was taking G, he may have thought I was giving it to her, and then sexually abusing her to the extent she is incapacited and not capable of consent. But how would Scott know Mandi is on G, to get stirred up by this idea that she is helpless and being raped or taken advantage of in there?
If Scott was stalking Mandi in Mulrenin's garage, or even just waiting for her, he may have seen her go out to her car and get the G. Mandi likes to drive around drinking G all day. And since she was hanging out with Chris Dahl, he would have been likely to provide her some to drive around with. Supposedly guys who do coke can't get hard. If Mulrenin couldn't get hard, Mandi might have gone to the garage to get the G from her car, based on her belief that G could help Mulrenin overcome that.
If Scott was waiting at Chris Dahl's house, Chris Dahl may have told Scott Mandi was over at Mulrenin's house taking G. Maybe Dahl wanted to stir the pot. Or if Scott became possessed with the idea Mandi was hanging out with me again, he might remember the last thing I did with Mandi was give her G.
Maybe his loyal girlfriend being gone for two hours, was all Scott needed to believe Mandi was restrained or incapacitated in some way.
There is no question Mulrenin was breaking the law using cocaine. And Mulrenin was corrupting a vulnerable person, Mandi, into breaking the law, by luring her with it. And Mulrenin was taking advantage of a broke young female employee, by bringing her home. Realistically, Mandi is a brain-damaged slut who drives around in circles all day, and there aren't enough bullets in the world to think that you can fix it by going to her boss's apartment with a gun. But having a screw loose and becoming confused about what to do and what is moral, is not the same as premeditated armed robbery.
It is generally accepted that Adolf Hitler is more evil than a bank robber. People who invent and spread this fake idea that Scott Love went to Mulrenin's apartment with a plan to rob him, are extremely evil in my mind. They are aggressive people with no conscience, who use propaganda to invent a sensational story and incite a mob against a person in an irrational way for sport. To me people who operate like that are much more sick and dangerous, than one guy with a screw loose who thinks there can be a good outcome from trespassing with a gun when his retarded girlfriend is cheating on him with her boss. Or even being raped by her boss, in his mind.
Or there could have been some other motivation which Scott perceived as moral. Something beyond just being cheated on. The only evidence Scott went there to rob Mulrenin is a psychological analysis, of him using the credit cards, or of his posture. I know Scott is a kleptomaniac, but he is also a whiny hardhead whose impulses are confused. I look at the tape and I don't see any rational plan.
I think Mandi was just gone too long, and Scott didn't have a phone to reach her. So Scott went looking for her and knocked on Mulrenin's door. Maybe the sun was coming up and Scott needed a ride somewhere. Mulrenin was coked-up and drunk and went batshit on the wrong trespasser, and was rude to his girlfriend.
I think Scott was carrying a gun, but not with any plan to use it. Mandi had a lot of guys in her life, and Scott wanted to compete. He can't buy the biggest house or the fastest car. So he tries to stand out by being the coolest and toughest guy by carrying a gun. Scott is trying to be gangster with that "don't tread on me" sweatshirt. It's a gimmick, like the hat and the beard and the tattoos. Scott is a genuine hardhead. But he didn't carry that gun to shoot it any more than a businessman wears a Rolex to tell time. The dude literally had no car. That gun was the only metal accessory he could afford.
People feel very free to invent or believe a hypothesis, about Scott going there to rob Mulrenin. Or about Scott wearing booties, which is not really supported by the evidence. And they feel justified to invent or believe it without real evidence, to lock Mandi in prison for 70 years from the age of 21. They imagine Mandi drugged Mulrenin, with the intent to rob him. They imagine it based on pure gossip and nonsense, and take her life based on a hunch.
But they assume Scott must have done what he did for money? They can imagine a robbery, but Scott can't imagine a rape? Scott cannot become similarly possessed with visions of the terrible, criminal things Mulrenin must be doing? Scott can't imagine or hypothesize the worst, that Mulrenin drugged Mandi to rape her? Mulrenin truly was an awful person. And Mandi truly was a vulnerable person. And Scott's lawyer was about to tell that story, and the jury was ready to hear it. But they never did, for reasons I will get to.
Prosecutor Stewart Stone is a bizarre and psychologically incomplete person, who obsessively stares at Mandi with the blank look of a kitten looking at a leaf, every time Mandi cries in court. He has no attachment to the truth, but only mindless aggression. Prosecutor Stone is much sicker and more evil, than some clown who gets into a fight and shoots a guy in the leg when his girlfriend is cheating with her boss.
A world without the pursuit of truth and only aggression is what the public justice system is supposed to mitigate. Not me, but I feel like I have been drafted into it by circumstance. The last thing I ever wanted my life to be wasted doing, is attempting to write the truth about this idiot Scott Love. I might as well be dead wasting my time trying to get the truth out in some irrational shithole Seminole County. But you can't let evil, and chaos, and Democrats elected at the end of it, prevail.
8. CAUGHT RED-HANDED - January 2019
Scott Love's trial started out as a disaster for the prosecution. Both defense and prosecution, in their opening statements, said Mulrenin was shot. By the time the jury was done hearing from witnesses at the Lofts, they were no longer even sure he was shot.
The prosecution did a half-assed job of coaching the Lofts witnesses to say Mulrenin was shot while fleeing. In reality, the first person witness to Mulrenin being shot was the medical examiner two days later. So the jury was confused if the people at the Lofts who witnessed Mulrenin die, were supposed to provide proof that he was shot, which they didn't.
Scott Love's jury was surprisingly normal and intelligent people compared to the average person in Seminole County. It was like every different person from the office of a small business in a high-tech field. Like maybe the CEO, some programmers, the receptionist, and a person who cleans the office. And there were some other normal office people or maybe medical workers on the jury.
I met one of the jurors, she was a young black girl who loved mysteries, and movies like "Minority Report." She was just cool and smart. I was extremely impressed, and relieved that of all the lowlifes in Seminole County, the people who report for jury duty are a functional subset. It was clear to these jurors, the prosecution was over-selling the planned robbery narrative.
Prosecutor Stone set the tone with a non sequitur, when he said Mandi and Mulrenin's DNA being on the same straw was evidence that this was a planned robbery. The defense said it was a consensual gathering. From that point forward, the jury ignored the prosecution's explanations of each piece of evidence, and began looking for their own explanations of all the evidence.
Jurors doubts were reinforced when bartender/manager Mellinger casually invented that one of the job applications in Mandi's car, was the same one Mandi gave Mellinger at Dollhouse two years earlier. The court spent 20 minutes arguing because there were two job applications, and neither was found at Dollhouse. Then the court basically said okay we want you to pick one of these two identical applications, and lie and say you recognize it as the same one Mandi gave you. The prosecution could have just said "Do these applications look basically the same as the one Mandi gave you two years ago?" But they were determined to have her lie and say "This is the one!"
Another one was a piece of paper with Mulrenin's address on it. It looks like somebody probably wrote it down as the billing address, to try to use his credit card online. But Stone said Mulrenin's address on a piece of paper was evidence they "targeted him" for a robbery. There are millions of addresses written on paper at this moment, and none of them are used to target someone for an armed robbery. It doesn't even make sense, and the jury saw that.
As a hooker, Mandi wrote down hundreds of addresses where guys had cash. In theory they would all be good places to rob. Going to any place requires having an address. You can't go to a restaurant without having the address. So having an address cannot be evidence of an intent to do armed robbery. Why does every house and business in the world even have an address, why would they need one, what is the use, it just exposes them as easy targets for armed robbery.
I have never even seen that in a movie, someone write down the address of a bank before an armed robbery. You have to go to the bank, see it, think about it, before you get the idea you want to rob that bank. So when you first decide to rob it, you have already seen it and know where it is. It is only by going to places, and seeing them, that you first get the idea they would be a good place to rob.
In movies, they are forced to spoon-feed the plot using contrived devices like addresses on paper. Directors dislike these "expository scenes" which are necessary to show the viewer what is happening, because they are unrealistic and awkward. Prosecutor Stone's presentation in court that day came across as awkward and contrived, an amateur B-movie screenplay.
It certainly made no sense that Mandi wrote down Mulrenin's address to go there and do an armed robbery. Because there is no way for her to know there is money in a boot box in a closet at an address she has never been to. But the prosecution made a great effort to present Mulrenin's apartment as being like a bank branch, by showing some money which police found hidden in a boot box in his closet, and hiding everything else. So there was no alternate reason to be there, the address had only cash, the address equaled cash. It was like a board game with a square called "cash" on the board.
The prosecution showed the money which police found in Mulrenin's closet, even though its existence can be taken as proof Scott and Mandi had no idea it was there. The defense then tried to show some marijuana, and other things that were right in Murenin's kitchen. The prosecution objected, and the judge wouldn't let them show it. The defense pointed out the judge already let them show money hidden in a closet that obviously nobody knew about. The judge said well, you could have objected.
The few photos the jurors saw from inside Mulrenin's apartment were small and blurry. So the jurors had pretty much no idea what was in Mulrenin's apartment or what it even looked like, what the layout was or what went on there. All they knew is that it had money in it. In reality it was a drug den filled with needles and viagra. But it was presented to the jury as an antiseptic bank branch, somehow known, but not known, to have money in it.
So the jury saw some irrelevant cash which it is certain Mandi had no idea was in Mulrenin's apartment. And the jury never saw the actual motive for Mandi being there, to smoke weed. But Scott Love's jury was still skeptical of the B movie plot, because they knew the prosecution wasn't telling them the real story about what happened with the girl and the boss and her boyfriend.
The idea that Mandi went home with her boss to commit an armed robbery at his apartment while drinking vodka, and shoot him and tie him up in duct tape with all the neighbors watching and listening, and Scott wore booties like "Mission Impossible," was outlandish. It was like a paranoid fantasy. And Prosecutor Stone came across like a crazy hallucinating person, which he is. He actually hallucinates guilt whether it is there or not, I have seen in many cases. But it made the jurors desperately hungry to know what really happened.
So when Smolarek went up there with what should have been a simple lie, that she found bloody gloves in Mandi's car with Scott's DNA on the inside, the jury didn't immediately swallow it. It wasn't the inside-outside "wearer DNA" thing where the gloves could be inside out. They probably accepted that Smolarek knew what was the inside. It wasn't even that the gloves were found in two different groups. The jurors did not have clear photographs to see that. It probably wasn't that there were only stains on some of the gloves. All it was, is the jurors were puzzled why there were five gloves and two DNA swabs, and from that Smolarek said Scott was the wearer, and Mulrenin's blood was on the outside.
When the DNA expert went on the stand, the jurors revealed their confusion about which swab came from which glove, and why exactly, and what the fuck? Unlike Smolarek, the jurors had a genuine curiosity what happened that night. So the prosecution recalled Smolarek as a witness, to clarify what DNA swab came from what glove. And Scott's lawyer objected to calling Smolarek back, and he was miserable through it because he knew it was a scam. He said something like "Come on, these gloves are not even the same color." And Smolarek came back on the stand, and she lied, as I have detailed elsewhere.
But that was pretty much the end of the prosecution's presentation, Smolarek saying that all the gloves were in one ball and Scott's DNA was on the inside, and Mulrenin's blood was on the outside. Up until then, there was no proof Scott was even in the apartment. And the robbery narrative was outlandish. But now the defense was faced with a total scam, and no good idea how to deal with it. So they made the absolutely disastrous decision to put Scott up there and say some even more ridiculous story to explain the fake evidence.
Scott said they got into an argument, and Mulrenin was shot in the leg by accident with his own gun. Which could very well be true. After 4,000 hours looking at the evidence and testimony in this case, I cannot disprove that story.
Scott said he then went out of there with Mulrenin's blood on his hands from the scuffle, and transferred it to the handle bars of his motorcycle which he used to arrive separately from Mandi. If Scott did arrive on a motorcycle, the dog walker at the freight door would have seen it. I do know the existence of that dog walker was concealed by police.
Scott said he then used gloves to do mechanical work on motorcycles, and that is how the blood got transferred from the handlebars to the rubber gloves he was wearing. I had a warehouse space next to two mechanics and an auto body shop. They all left inside-out surgical gloves in the trash every day. And I know Scott did rebuild a motorcycle. And the gloves from the zip-tie package do appear to have some generalized grunge on them. But Love's story was just too far-fetched and ridiculous.
They asked Scott what about the duct tape? Scott said he had no idea how it got there. He said the duct tape was not there when he left. They asked what about Mulrenin going over the balcony? Scott said Mulrenin was still in his apartment when Scott left, he had no idea why Mulrenin went over the balcony or when.
The jury was dying for Scott to go up there and save them from the prosecution's lies. They were starved to know what really happened to tie together all these inconsistent odds and ends. Why would they wipe the blood off the couch but leave the duct tape and cable ties? Why would they wear gloves and booties to commit a perfect crime, but then walk around on camera and leave the gloves and booties in the car? Why would they plan to hogtie her boss who knows her name, in an apartment where everyone can hear?
And Scott went up there and straight lied to them. He left them knowing even less than when he started. And they were angry at him for it. And they thought oh my god, this motherfucker really did it! He really did use bloody gloves in some kind of murder! Otherwise he would have told us what really happened, why make up such a stupid lie? Who would have ever guessed, before he came up here with such sketchy lies. Of course he knows how the duct tape got there.
Love's tone was also too dry. He told a story about some crazy events. But he expressed no emotion, like he had no stake in what happened. Like he didn't care. It was just a flat tone, even as he discussed Mulrenin coming with a gun. You cannot expect someone who has never done something before, like bake a cake or testify in his own defense in a murder trial, to get it right the first time he tries.
I hurried to the bathroom, after holding it in eager anticipation of Scott's testimony. A juror came into the bathroom behind me. He said "Wow, that didn't go very well! That was a bad decision by his lawyer to put him on the stand!" I said maybe his lawyer thought he was a sympathetic character because his girlfriend was cheating on him.
So they convicted him on all counts, and he got life in prison without parole. And it all went back to Smolarek's fake bloody glove "wearer DNA" evidence, which there was no honest explanation for because it never happened.
The sad part for Love is he is really good at whining. Mandi wouldn't have been with him if he wasn't. Catering to whining like a crying baby is the daily bread of her relationships. The first thing I noticed on Love's facebook page was a whiny post about how nobody is perfect and people are mean to him or something. And you hear it in his police reports whining and shouting when he gets arrested, about how it is unfair and his girlfriend did it not him.
The prosecution played some phone calls from jail where Love whined and consoled his family (and which Judge Nelson said she wouldn't admit until someone from the jail testified he was read his miranda rights or something, which never happened). He was supposed to be admitting guilt even if indirectly, but he came off as very sympathetic. If Scott summoned that same tone on the stand which I expected him to, the jury would have been sympathetic to him.
I still think if Scott told jurors the truth, that Mandi used the duct tape to bind Mulrenin's wound after their supposed scuffle, and that Mulrenin fell off his balcony because he was completely out of it on drugs and alcohol (and labyrinthitis which Scott has no idea about), Scott would likely have walked out of there. Because it made more sense than the prosecution's outlandish fantasy. And the jury was in a receptive state at that point. But that fake "wearer DNA" got in their heads and they panicked.
9. TRIAL BY LEGAL SECRETARY - 2019
Having never seen a criminal trial before, the most shocking thing to me was how the jury was given very little information and never had any idea what really happened. I used to tell people don't assume you know what happened in a criminal case just based on what you read in the newspaper. Unless you are there at the trial, you don't know what the truth is. It turns out that the truth doesn't come out at trial, the jury is left with no clue. The jury never would have guessed one tenth of the evidence that existed which they were deprived of.
Scott Love's jury was surprised that nobody even tried to give them an honest account of what happened. Like there was no adult in the room. They expect if the defendant is guilty, the defense will paint a different picture from what really happened. They didn't expect the prosecution to also make up crazy things and accusations not supported by the evidence, and exaggerate, and tell them something different from what was right in front of their face. This was not the sort of geeky truth-seeking process that writers idealize in television shows. It was a ridiculous crooked spectacle. The jury was shocked by it. But I guess it is business as usual in a criminal trial, which people outside the law world would never guess.
I was shocked at how little of the evidence the jury actually sees. Each side presents only a tiny subset of the evidence, in an effort to contrive a storyboard that is, at best, simpler than the truth. There were 100's of pictures of the crime scene, but I don't think the jury even saw 10. Witnesses changed their stories or left things out, and the jury never knew. The jury never saw a floor plan of Mulrenin's apartment, or a diagram of his apartment building. Some of this is just practical constraints of time and money. But a lot of it is case law and the rules of evidence. The rules of evidence also don't give jurors a copy of the testimony, so they can't even remember what they heard. In longer trials, this has a disproportionate impact on their ability to consider small details of what people said.
Judges with competing agendas have spent years trying to rig the process by adding new rules to make individual cases come out how they want them to. They have redefined and destroyed the Constitutional right to a trial by jury because they can. One judge will say "I want the case to come out this way, so I am making a new rule that you can't show the jury this." Another judge will say "I think that is unfair based on the outcome I want, so to balance it, I am going to say you are not allowed to show the jury this other thing. Or I am going to broadly interpret what you said, to use it in the situation I want to use it in. Or you have to give the jury this instruction of how to read this evidence which fixes the outcome in this case."
You don't need me to tell you Mandi went up to Mulrenin's apartment to smoke weed. The prosecutor in Mandi's closing argument said "Use your common sense." There was a pipe and loose marijuana in plain sight, in plain use on Mulrenin's kitchen counter. The smoke detector was disabled on a table. Mulrenin did not test positive for marijuana. Smolarek photographed marijuana in Mandi's car. The Dollhouse video shows Mandi smoking marijuana with Neisha Cintron. So your common sense tells you that Mandi's motive for being at Mulrenin's apartment was to smoke marijuana.
Only problem is case law will not let Mandi's lawyers show that marijuana in Mulrenin's kitchen to the jury. Won't let Mandi's lawyers ask Smolarek if she found marijuana in Mandi's car. The prosecution's theory, according to their witnesses, is that Mandi was there for two hours, and ransacked the apartment to steal things of value, including things hidden in boxes in closets. The defense's theory is that Mandi left without taking things of value. But a photograph of marijuana, which is Mandi's motive for being there, with direct relevance to proving and disproving the prosecution and defense's version of events, is not allowed to be shown to the jury. Some judge somewhere did not like the outcome of a case where the jury knew that some participant, probably the defendant, used marijuana.
So there is marijuana that is in plain use in plain sight in the kitchen. It is clearly the central activity in that room that night. Jury is not allowed to see it. Cash in a box in a closet which obviously Mandi did not know about? Jury is allowed to see that. Jailhouse witness who was in another county when Mulrenin died, read the police story in the newspaper in jail, and is threatened with prison if she doesn't say Mandi confessed to it? She can tell the jury the entire story of the crime, including the content of text messages that the most advanced technology could not get out of Mandi's phone. Marijuana that was actually in Mulrenin's apartment and in use the night he died is hidden from the jury. While a jailhouse so-called witness, who was nowhere near the scene of the crime, is put front and center as the primary witness of what happened in there that night.
Prosecutor Stone said in Mandi's closing argument "Use your common sense." If I were the defense, I would have said "Objection, not in evidence." The entire case law and rules of evidence are designed specifically to prevent jurors from using their common sense. Evidence is only allowed which is consistent with a specific preconceived, articulated narrative. You cannot guess what happened, beyond what the lawyers tell you happened, because the rules of evidence are not designed help you come to third conclusions not promoted by prosecution or defense. It was impossible, based on the evidence allowed, for the jurors to ever guess Mandi's true motive for being at Mulrenin's apartment. Strippers are chimneys when it comes to smoking weed. For the jurors, it was cash or nothing.
I lived in Miami before George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin. I saw black teenagers from North Miami going around punching strangers in the face. It was a popular thing in a certain demographic. I even heard a black teenager punch a toddler in the face in the dark, and then explain to his parents the logic of why he did it. I heard bone hit bone, tot crying, parents objecting, and a black teenager explaining.
If I were to use my "common sense" that is what I would say Trayvon Martin did to George Zimmerman. But Judge Nelson blocked the defense from mentioning Trayvon's reputation for punching people. And "the knockout game" was not in the national news yet, a Sanford jury would not have heard of it. So Judge Nelson deprived the jury of the opportunity to use common sense. But Mandi's jury was instructed by prosecutor Stone to use common sense, even though they knew less about Mandi and Mulrenin than Sanford jurors know about North Miami. Because Mandi's prosecutor knew the specifics of the evidence and testimony before the jury did not prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
According to Judge Recksiedler, the defense is not allowed to question witnesses on general information, or present general evidence which might be relevant to understanding what happened. They can only present true facts and items even in the vicinity of the crime, if they can articulate to the judge exactly how this information fits into the specific defense narrative of exactly what happened. This presumes every defendant can have an all-knowing attorney who is smarter than the defendant and the judge and every juror. The prosecution was not limited in this way. The prosecution was allowed to present ribs hollowed out from organ donation, an address on paper with no known criminal use, and a receipt for an engagement ring, that in no way contributed to any narrative that Mandi planned or was a principal in a robbery, or that Mulrenin was dead. We know he is dead.
Mulrenin's bed drawer was filled with viagra - blister packages, boxes, loose and broken pills - in a way that could be fairly characterized as a reckless and careless. His bedroom had blackout curtains. He had antibiotic eye drops. He punched the elevator button 8 times after the door was already closing, he rubbed his eyes, and he almost bumped into a wall on his way to the curb. It may be that neither the female defendant, nor her female attorney, nor the female judge, had any idea that viagra can caused blurred vision, tunnel vision, sensitivity to light, and retina damage. So they cannot articulate that narrative, to show evidence of it to the jury. But there could be five men on the jury who all have experience with exactly those symptoms, and who in their "common sense" believe vision problems from excessive viagra coud have contributed to Mulrenin going over the balcony.
Recksiedler would not have admitted any theory that Mulrenin went over the balcony because of viagra. The prosecution would have objected as "not in evidence." This is the same prosecution that said Mulrenin jumped from the fifth floor because he saw there was some soft grass and he was about to be shot, when no such thing was in evidence. There cannot be any rational reason to jump to your certain death from the fifth floor. Certainly not soft grass. So any medical theory, every drug, any idea should have been admitted, ahead of the argument which cannot be supported by anything in evidence, that jumping was a rational conscious reaction to something Scott Love or Mandi Jackson did. Did he fall because he was blind, or did he jump from five floors because there was soft grass? Recksiedler only wanted evidence to support one of those theories.
It is assumed jurors will bring some knowledge with them, such as how an elevator works. What about knowledge that strippers like weed, to a sufficient level to explain Mandi's motive for being in Mulrenin's apartment? Does a girl who went to law school know that strippers like weed? Is it possible a girl on the jury would know more about strippers and more about illegal drugs and more about prostitution, than any of the attorneys in the room who must argue about what evidence is relevant to understanding what happened? Is it possible a defense attorney could know his client is not guilty, but a juror could still discover proof of innocence which the defense attorney never even thought of? Is that part of the right to a trial by jury? Or is your right to a trial by jury limited to what a lawyer can articulate, when there were not even public defenders at the time the Bill of Rights was written?
What does the color of Mulrenin's dissected brain have to do with whether Mandi was a principal in a robbery? More than the fact that there was weed that was not taken from the apartment?
An attorney has to be extraordinarily thoughtful and creative, and spend a lot of time, to think how every piece of evidence might be useful to any person in the jury to understand what happened. There are 12 jurors from all walks of life. It is safer to just show more evidence and err on the side of providing jurors everything that might be useful to them, than to assume attorneys have infinite wisdom, infinite creativity, and perfect communication, to determine and include exactly what is useful and what isn't. But Judge Recksiedler does not see it that way. She clearly intends to restrict evidence in a way that deprives jurors of any opportunity to use their own common sense.
In a circumstantial case, there may be key pieces of evidence that no attorney recognizes the significance of. But someone out of twelve jurors, with common and provincial knowledge, may see the significance. In circumstantial cases you need to show more evidence. Every item in Mulrenin's house, every item in every cabinet, is part of the murky circumstances surrounding his death. Everything could have something to do with what went on in there, if we don't know what went on in there. But prosecutor Stone argued it was not a circumstantial case, because Mandi confessed to it. In Judge Recksiedler's courtroom, a jailhouse witness can be totally discredited, and still change the outcome of a case by changing the narrative and Recksiedler's preconceptions, and what evidence she allows or not.
A jailhouse witness can literally say "What I am about to say is a lie, Mandi confessed to me that she used a knife." At that point, the prosecution is now allowed to show every knife in central Florida, because they have a narrative for it. If the defense wants to show a screwdriver in Mulrenin's drawer, Recksiedler wouldn't allow it. I could lie on the stand and say I hid a camera in Mulrenin's apartment, I saw Mandi looking in the drawers. Everybody would know I was lying. It's not just that Mandi's lawyers are less shameless than prosecutor Stone and would never put me up there to do that. It's that they know Recksiedler still would not allow the defense to show what was in the drawer. If Recksielder would have allowed it, then Mandi's lawyers were ineffective in the game that Recksiedler created, by not introducing their own liar to affect what evidence was allowed.
Millions of people have been shot for reasons other than robbery. Everyone accepted that Scott and not Mandi shot Mulrenin in the leg. Once Mulrenin went over the balcony, they could have stolen every item in his apartment without it being a robbery. We know Mandi is at the apartment, and she must have known the address to get there. The only evidence Mandi planned a robbery is that the jailhouse witness said she did. But even if the jailhouse witness is totally discredited, Judge Recksiedler allowed an address on a piece of paper because it corroborates the prosecution's theory, introduced by a liar. If there is no lying jailhouse witness, there is no planned robbery theory to corroborate, and no use for the paper. If you want to argue with that, then you concede the outcome of the case is dictated by the outcome of an argument about what evidence the jury is prevented from seeing, and not by letting the jury weigh the facts.
If the jury is limited to seeing only a small slice of the evidence as Scott and Mandi's juries were, then their decision is inherent in what few items of evidence they got to see. They had extreme tunnel vision. If the jury is limited to seeing specifically the crumbs of evidence that a defense attorney can win an argument with the judge to present, or even win an argument with an appeals judge, that is not trial by jury. That is trial by judge and lawyer. The jury should see all the evidence that has some possibility of being relevant, for it to be a trial by jury. That includes evidence which might create a bias such as evidence the victim was violent or used drugs. Because the defendant, not the victim, and certainly not any prosecution witness, is guaranteed a trial by jury under the Constitution. That includes evidence the defense attorney might be tongue-tied in explaining, but just has a hunch it is relevant. That includes every single piece of evidence in sight or in probable use in the room where the crime took place. It is not for the judge, or even for the lawyer, it is for the jury.
Recksiedler allowed the jury to see a piece of paper from Mandi's bedroom with James Mulrenin's address on it, that nobody knows who wrote it or when or why. I think someone tried to use his credit card online and needed the billing address. The defense said it should be disallowed because there is no relevance or foundation without knowing where the address came from or how it was used. We already know and admit Mandi was at that address. Prosecutor Stone argued that because the note was on the same dresser where a gun was found in a closed drawer, the note implied that address was written down in an advance plan to go shoot someone at that address.
But remember, there were many items in closed drawers and cabinets at that address, such as needles and marijuana and testosterone and things no one will ever know about. Literally any item in a closed drawer at Mulrenin's address could be contemplated as a reason for writing it down. The defense asked to show marijuana at Mulrenin's address which he could have been selling, and they wrote down his address to go buy it. Judge Recksiedler would not allow the jury to see marijuana at that address. The jury was barred by the judge, from contemplating alternate totally invented reasons for writing down Mulrenin's address, other than the cash hidden a balcony closet which Mandi could not have known was there.
The loose marijuana and pipe on the kitchen counter were part of a constellation of evidence that showed why Mandi put on a jacket, why neighbors heard arguing, whether Mulrenin went over the balcony in a struggle as Madara claimed, whether Mandi tricked Mulrenin into to taking her home as alleged, and whether the apartment was ransacked as Kaylee claimed. Why did Mandi put on a jacket? Because it was cold. Why was it cold? Because the balcony door was open before dawn in December. Why was the balcony door open? Because the smoke detector was disabled on the table, meaning the place was filled with smoke. Why was the place filled with smoke? Because that is how much marijuana use goes on in Mulrenin's apartment. So much, that the same neighbor who testified hearing a commotion, testified smelling marijuana for years. Even though it is smoked out of sight, in the opposite end of the apartment. Therefore the commotion the neighbor heard, like the marijuana he smelled, was not on the balcony. It was inside, and possibly on the opposite end of the apartment in the kitchen or at the front door.
Mulrenin did not test positive for marijuana. Why was Jackson, all by herself, smoking so much marijuana that Mulrenin gave to her, to set off the fire alarm? Why, when her intention was to trick him and commit a robbery? Do you trick a man, by letting him feed you so much marijuana that you set off a fire alarm and freeze? Was there something in the apartment other than cash, that could be of value to Mandi, that she knew was there, that could be her motive for being there? Something right in the kitchen that she didn't take when she left? Not so far as the jury knows, the judge won't allow it.
Mulrenin tested positive for recent cocaine use, not fully metabolized. There was a mess of loose cocaine hastily stashed in the room where he was supposedly murdered, and many full and empty bags. Love's lawyers wanted to include these plain facts in their narrative by showing a picture of the cocaine, and say Mulrenin was doing cocaine that night. The prosecution wanted to block this, on the idea that unless a jailhouse witness claims Mulrenin confessed to doing cocaine in the room with Scott and Mandi, he could have done it before they came or some other place or time or who knows what. Without a jailhouse witness, it is impossible to say Mulrenin did cocaine that night. Recksiedler said of the cocaine in Mulrenin's blood and kitchen "There was no evidence of whose it was." But Recksiedler allowed one picture of cocaine, after much objection.
Later in the trial, the prosecution wanted to show a blurry partial picture of a credit card that fell on the floor of a car in another county five days later. It was totally immaterial to the matter in dispute, that Scott Love robbed James Mulrenin. It contributed not even a crumb of extra support to the prosecution's narrative. They had video of Love using Mulrenin's credit cards, and a wallet with Mulrenin's credit cards and a picture of Love's son, among many other things. The credit card had nitrous cartridges on the floor next to it. The same Judge Recksiedler who had to be begged on hands and knees to show any drugs at the scene where Mulrenin was supposedly murdered, had zero hesitation to show drugs in the defendant's car another time and place. Her argument sounded like she was stoned.
Alison Smolarek, who took the unclear photo of the drugs on the floor next to the credit card, had just referred to bullets as "cartridges." A juror who saw the drug picture from the car asked what the "cartridges" on the floor were. The court did not allow the question to be answered. So in fact, they misled at least one juror that there were bullets on the floor of the car, to save the case from being reversed for showing irrelevant illegal activity by the defendant.
Judge Recksiedler allowed every piece of evidence that could possibly contribute to an opinion the defendant was guilty. That was her standard of relevance for the prosecution. More simply, she allowed every piece of evidence the prosecution wanted, that could show the defendant in a bad light. I cannot think of any item the prosecution wanted that was disallowed. The prosecution was never pressed to articulate how something that happened at a pawn shop several days later, was evidence that Mandi was a principal in a planned burglary. The prosecution only argued that it was relevant to show Mandi used Mulrenin's cards at Walmart. It had already been proven very clearly that Mandi used Mulrenin's cards at Walmart, and it was never disputed she did, every party already conceded it was true. The conclusions of "common sense" were inherent in and limited by the evidence that was permitted and denied.
Recksiedler did not allow, for example, Scott Love to show restraints on Mandi's bed at home that show she either likes to be tied up, or is at least willing to submit to being tied up. Love's defense had a theory, which very well could be true, that Mulrenin used cable ties to tie Mandi up in a sex fetish. But even though this was directly relevant to the defense's theory and even to corroborate Love's testimony, and very well may have been true based on what I know, Judge Recksiedler did not allow it. That wasn't all that was denied to the defense. But even if they had shown every item Love's lawyer had the creativity to include in his narrative, it still would have been insufficient to give the jury a full picture of what happened, the scene and the participants, to where they could use their "common sense."
The court showed the jury Mandi Jackson was at a pawn shop several days later. Remember, Mandi Jackson was accused of planning a robbery and tying Mulrenin up with cable ties. None of the fairly ordinary events the prosecution used to show her character, indicate that she would tie a man up in cable ties. Using stolen credit cards at Walmart is the most common thing on Earth, it happens 1000 times a day, and in none of those cases did the person using the cards tie someone up in cable ties. So almost any piece of evidence, that would corroborate any theory of why there were some cable ties, would be helpful. But Judge Recksiedler would not allow the jury to see restraints on Mandi's bed, because Judge Recksiedler has a preconception they are not relevant, before the jury gets to decide for themselves why there were cable ties.
When Love's attorney wanted to ask police if they found any restraints in her bedroom, the judge wouldn't let him. When Love's attorney wanted to show the jury the weed in Mulrenin's kitchen, the judge wouldn't let him. The court thought the secret cash locked away in a box in an outside closet was relevant to the jury understanding why Mandi went there that night. The court thought the fact that Mulrenin has a battery conviction and Mandi is a freaky submissive slut with CTE and a compulsive need to self-medicate, and Mulrenin had marijuana that he doesn't use himself, marijuana and a pipe in plain use in plain sight in his kitchen when Mandi was there, were not helpful to the jury understanding why she was there.
The jury saw photos of the inside of Mulrenin's hollowed out ribs from organ donation for no reason. It was supposed to show he had a broken neck, when I am sure there was an xray that would make more sense to the jury. The jury saw every random thing in Scott's bedroom, except the restraints on the corners of the bed that showed Mandi would give in to Scott Love when he caught up with her.
The prosecution fought all day to hide the marijuana, and hide the fact that Mandi was on psychotropic drugs for depression and anxiety. Recksiedler allowed the psychotropic drugs in the jury instruction, only after Bark promised he would never mention it out loud in his arguments. They were not allowed to present Mandi as who she was, a depressed person who needs drugs to be happy. Then they told the jury "Use your common sense. A stripper would never go home with an old guy for any reason you know about. The only reason she would go home with this guy is to rob him." Judge Recksiedler agreed with this theory, in judging that the jury should not be allowed to see any evidence of other activities or fetishes.
Mandi Jackson is freaky as fuck, and likes for old men to put a gun to her head. I told people that long before this case ever happened. I have a theory it is a childhood rape reenactment fetish. And James Mulrenin was an extreme creepy weirdo sex addict control freak, regardless of how that is whitewashed after his death. Evidence was allowed and denied based on a preconception that cute young girls are prudes who lead guys on and trick them out of their money, and James Mulrenin was a normal old guy. Does your common sense tell you who Mulrenin was, what he was like? Yes, you assume he is a decent guy. And common sense was a misleading substitute for allowing actual evidence of what he was like.
Reality is always much more complicated than a simple allegation. I can show you a picture of a screw and a screwdriver, and then say I spent the entire day screwing in screws. Reality is that I spent the day petting my dogs, taking a shower, going to the refrigerator 19 different times, throwing away some trash, falling asleep, getting nine phone calls, scratching a sticker off my laptop, and at least 200 other things. It is literally impossible for me to present to you a narrative of what I actually did with my day. The evidence in Love and Jackson's trial was like presenting the jury with a world that consisted entirely of a screw and a screwdriver. Every other item is relevant to the narrative of what really happened. Every drug there, every cabinet that was not opened, every item that was not stolen or disturbed, is relevant to alternate theories.
The evidence is the narrative, you don't need to say it. If the defense wants to show a piece of evidence then by definition it supports their narrative. We think Mulrenin jumped because there was soft grass. We think they wrote down that address to go shoot him. We don't think she went there to rob him, we think she went there to stare at that marijuana. We don't think she went there to rob him, we think she went there to contemplate what it is like for a man to have convictions for racketeering and battery. Which one of those do you think Judge Recksiedler would allow? And who has the right to a trial by jury, the prosecution, or the defendant? Recksiedler has a preconception that Mandi went there to rob him is the only true, unbiased fair narrative, before the jury gets to weigh the relevance of facts, true facts, themselves.
All the jury saw was Mandi meet Mulrenin, they did cocaine, Mulrenin was shot, there was some cash in his closet, and Mandi used his cards at Walmart. The video was edited and deleted before the defense ever got it, to hide the possibility of understanding what really happened that night. The labels on the cell tower map were limited to what was alleged. Even Neisha Cintron committed perjury to simplify the narrative greatly compared to what actually happened. The narrative of what really happened, literally includes every single other item in Mulrenin's apartment. It is more than anyone can articulate. Every other item is an alibi. Judge Recksiedler's thought process never would have allowed the defense to present any of it, and was biased towards the prosecution's narrative, and towards guilt.
Recksiedler's process of denying the defendant the opportunity to present his defense worked great for another trial of hers, a guy named Greg Lepera. He got convicted of drunk boating manslaughter. But he is a well-known businessman who is politically connected in Seminole County, and Recksiedler sent him home with a suspended sentence. Of course there is no point for Lepera to appeal her decisions. Recksiedler's process worked not so great for Mandi who only sucked a guy's dick in Seminole County, and got two mandatory life sentences without the possibility of parole.
Scott's jury was presented with a choice between two simple competing narratives, neither with much correlation to the truth. It was sort of disrespectful and the jurors knew they were being snowed. Of course it is disrespectful toward the defendant and the victim and their families. But I never knew before that lawyers and judges have a total disdain for the sentiments, the morals, the tendencies, the intellectual capacity of the jury. They see the jury as a bunch of benighted superstitious bumpkins. It may be the safest assumption. And then after hiding the truth to manipulate and protect the sentiments of the jury all day, with a contrived set of crumbs of so-called evidence, Stone says "use your common sense." The jury has no idea. By design.
When the jailhouse witnesses claimed Mandi confessed, Scott's lawyers immediately said that is hearsay, can't use it in court against Scott. And the judge agreed. If the truth matters, it is just garbage gossip from the jailhouse where nobody expects anybody to tell the truth, and nobody has any incentive to tell the truth. Mandi and Scott are guaranteed equal protection under the 14th amendment. They were accused of equal collusion in the same crime. There is no difference in the credibility of what the jailhouse witnesses said Mandi did, versus what they said Scott did. The only difference between Mandi and Scott, is Mandi's right against self incrimination in the 5th amendment, particularly when locked in jail and being asked questions. But case law says the same evidence, the jailhouse witnesses, can be used against Mandi, and not against Scott.
I guess the idea is that Scott Love would be denied his Constitutional right to confront the witness, because Mandi won't come to the stand and testify. Elected State Attorney Phil Archer and Mandi's first judge, the respected Debra Nelson, both agreed Mandi could be compelled to unlock her cellphone, after being granted immunity from using that as evidence that she owned the cellphone. When Mandi's lawyer asked one of the jailhouse witnesses if she discussed the elements of the crime of burglary with her attorney, the judge said you can't ask that. Attorney client privilege of this small fact, overrides Mandi's right to confront witnesses under the sixth amendment. So certainly Mandi could have been subpoenaed by Scott's lawyers, and confronted in court about her supposed confessions. At least to the same extent Mandi could be coerced to unlock her cellphone, or a jailhouse witness can be confronted about what her lawyer told her to say.
The jailhouse witness can go up there and say anything, Mandi used a black glock, Mandi let Scott Love into the apartment. But the defense is not even allowed to tell the jury what crime that jailhouse witness was convicted of and plead guilty to. Armed robbery, breaking into homes? Can't say it. Jailhouse witness can lie and say "Mandi called me Mama Jules." Julie Madara claimed at a sentence hearing that a drug dealer forced her to rob people, same thing she says Mandi confessed to.
But the defense can't tell the jury who this witness is, why she is in jail, what else she has done, what she has said in the past. According to Judge Recksiedler, case law won't let them. Some judge in some case didn't like the outcome when the jury knew what crime some participant, probably the defendant, had been convicted of. And that judge decided that his agenda is more important than Mandi's Constitutional right to put true facts in front of the jury for her defense.
Mandi's lawyers were not allowed to ask the other witnesses "Did anybody provide you a benefit for testifying here today? Like they provided to the jailhouse witnesses?" Why can't they ask? Judge doesn't like it? Judge knows where this is going? Judge has a preconception that they weren't provided a benefit? Nobody alleged that these witnesses were provided a benefit? Nobody alleged that Mandi used a black glock. No sane honest person anyway. The major points of Kaylee Simmons' testimony, such as Mandi used a black glock, directly contradicted physical evidence in the case. And the judge had no problem letting the prosecution ask Kaylee questions, when the judge knew Kaylee's answers had no bearing on reality and would be more likely to confuse the jury. So it was a trial by judge.
The fact that Mandi's lawyer Bark is not alleging the witnesses were bribed, and prosecutor Stone is alleging Mandi planned a robbery, is immaterial so far as the jury is concerned. It is not a reflection of any fact, it is only a reflection of Bark being less shameless than Stone. At the point where Mandi is presumed innocent, there should be no preconception that Mandi planned a robbery. So the jury can no more become confused that the witnesses were bribed, than confused that Mandi planned a robbery. Whether one is confusion, and the other is a fair concept to leave the jury with, depends on the preconception that Mandi planned a robbery. Judge Recksiedler weighed and blocked or admitted testimony in light of her preconception that Mandi was guilty, and the witnesses were not bribed. That is a trial by judge. Does the judge know the witnesses weren't bribed, any more than she knows whether Mandi planned a robbery or used a black Glock?
The least we can say is the witnesses know whether they were bribed or not. Whereas the jailhouse witnesses were not inside Mulrenin's apartment and don't know what happened in there. Judge Recksiedler is used to civil court, where the lawyers agree to a long list of facts before it ever gets to the jury. In a criminal trial, the judge and the prosecution can't agree in advance on what the truth is before the jury hears it. The jury is the finder of fact. The witnesses need to tell the jury whether they were bribed, what the judge or the prosecution thinks is irrelevant.
What if a witness was given a plane ticket to come from out of state to testify? Is that a benefit? Judge thinks that's too complicated. The jury can't figure out if a witness who was flown in to testify was given a benefit. Can't confuse the jury with mindbenders like that. But the judge thinks its okay to ask Kaylee what Mandi told her, when she knows Kaylee is going to say Scott hid in the back of the car and Mandi used a black Glock and signed "fuck you" at Walmart. All of that is extremely confusing for the jury because it's impossible. Actually, the prosecution agreed to not have Kaylee say Mandi signed "fuck you" at Walmart. Judge would have allowed it even though she knows the "fuck you" signature doesn't exist.
This is supposed to be a trial by jury, not a trial by Judge. Not a trial by what the prosecution tells the judge they want the jury to hear. Its the defendant's right to choose what the jury hears, that is his right to a trial by jury. If the prosecution can't prove their case when a jury hears a witness was flown in from out of state, if the best evidence they have is that fragile and hard to understand, maybe they should let the defendant go. If the jury is that fucking dumb to not understand that, the judge should have declared a mistrial.
Prosecutor Stone told the jury "Just because witness Madara says Mandi says Mulrenin took this drug G, doesn't mean it happened." We can't get a correction like that, if a witness like Scott Jones accidentally says he received a benefit for testifying? Prosecutor Stone can't tell the jury "Hold on, just because Scott Jones said he got a benefit for testifying, doesn't mean he did." The judge wasn't going to let some crazy thing like that happen, when it is the defense asking to use their Constitutional right to question witnesses in front of the jury. The jury is there to hear what the Defendant wants to tell them. But Judge Recksiedler says no, the jury is here to hear any crazy confusing thing the prosecution wants to have a witness say, even if it contradicts physical evidence, and then tell the jury what parts to believe. Even if the prosecution says don't listen to the witness, there was no drug G. But if the defense wants to ask a witness if they received a benefit, it is too crazy and confusing, and doesn't fit with the evidence. It doesn't fit with Judge Recksiedler's preconceptions of fact.
The jailhouse witness is a plain scam and the judge knows it. It's worse than hearsay. Half the things Kaylee said in her deposition were complete nonsense. Even Prosecutor Stone agreed Kaylee is a liar, when he admitted there was no "fuck you" signature. So the judge knows letting Kaylee testify is a complete scam. But asking the other witnesses if they received a benefit? Oh, that would be weird. Just rubs her wrong. Paying liars to lie in front of the jury doesn't rub her wrong. But asking people a simple question? No, that seems kind of contrived to convey accurate information to the jury and win a case in court. Maybe on some weird planet where they allow a trial by jury, but this is a trial by judge where case law dictates the outcome. Julie Madara can accuse the defendant of drugging the victim, but you can't even tell the jury the true fact of what crimes Julie Madara was convicted of. That would create a jury bias against the witness, and there is some kind of bill of rights for the witness that supersedes the right of a 21-year-old girl to get a trial by jury with full facts ahead of a life sentence with no parole.
The jailhouse witness is a neat trick. Police are not allowed to say to a defendant "Confess, or you will spend a year in prison." If they could it would save a lot of gas, because police would never leave the jail again to do actual investigations. So instead they say to another defendant "Claim this person confessed to you, or you will spend a year in prison." It is no more complicated than that. In fact it is even less complicated than it would first appear, given the jail is filled with 100 career liars and known victimizers of the innocent, looking for angles to beat the system. And they are all familiar with things like arrest affidavits, the clerk web site, what happens to people who lie on the stand - nothing - and the elements the prosecution needs to prove specific crimes like burglary.
The same people who don't want felons to vote, want them to take the lives of strangers into their hands, and will release them from prison in exchange for doing so. It is not like there was some evidence of Mandi's guilt which was suppressed, and the prosecutors needed the jailhouse witnesses to make up for it. They had no compelling reason to believe Mandi was guilty. All they had was jailhouse witnesses who were known by all parties involved to be lying.
10. KINGDOM OF LIARS - 2016 to 2019
The strangest thing is how no lawyers in the room, judge prosecution or defense, feel any attachment to the truth, and no shame. You can go in a web politics forum where people who love and hate President Trump argue all day, and wish death on each other. But a person who Loves President Trump will not want to be caught lying by someone who hates President Trump. And each side will want to argue that his passionate political position, his wish for the literal suffering and death of his adversary, is based on the truth. But lawyers in a courtroom will do whatever they can get away with, with no shame or sanction from their peers for lying.
At Mandi's trial, in his closing argument, prosecutor Stone told the jury the gun was Mandi's gun. All the lawyers in the room know that is almost certainly not true. An anonymous person in a web forum would be ashamed to make an assertion that all his peers and adversaries know is almost certainly not true. But the prosecutor in a criminal trial does not seem to be at all worried that the judge or defense lawyers will think he is a lying scumbag. And the judge does not seem to care if the outcome is just or even based in truth. She sees herself as a legal secretary.
It probably got to a point in the 60's or 70's where it was no longer even possible to try to bring out the truth at trial, because of case law. Rather than telling the truth, you were forced to tell whatever story you could come up with, to fit with whatever evidence you were allowed to present. And from that point it is just a sport of liars. And of jailhouse informants and expert witnesses. And of people manufacturing whatever kind of evidence the rules don't forbid, to have any hope to get anything done. Old-fashioned lying is the one kind of evidence that higher courts, rules of evidence, and case law, can't prevent you from introducing, How is a higher court going to determine if you lied? No chance.
Witness Neisha Cintron can go up there and straight lie "I didn't meet Mandi until the end of the night. Mulrenin never took employees home with him." Doesn't matter. Jackson Athaide said "911 call came in at 6:30." Prosecutor Stone says "Just because Mandi told jailhouse witness Madara there was a drug named G doesn't mean it's true." Denise Smith said she ducked a gunshot right before she reported a suicide to 911. Even Judge Recksiedler was fooled about when the murder victim actually died, and thought he was alive in the hospital for two days. Barbara Mellinger completely invented, straight-up made it up right in front of Scott's jury "This is the job application that Mandi gave me." They don't even pretend that the witnesses aren't making it up. Only Mellinger didn't make it up. She lied about not knowing why there were two applications.
When a crime-scene technician lies on the stand, I get excited. So I pointed out Smolarek's new lie about the gloves to Mandi's lawyer Bark. He said "Yeah, but it doesn't matter because none of it's Mandi's DNA." To me it matters, because the whole system is a car with marshmallow wheels. But lawyers are like female veterinarians after 10 years tossing family dogs in the freezer all day. It doesn't bother them that it is not what people hope for.
The lawyers in the courtroom, the judge, the prosecution, the defense, are part of the same professional organization, The Bar. They are not going to try to police or harass their peers for dishonesty. As a practical matter, there is no ultimate arbiter to determine what the truthfulness of any statement is. Are they going to have a separate trial for every fact every lawyer supposedly lied about? No they are not, and so there is no benefit to go after your peers. All they have to do is deny lying and say you are the one lying, and it would dead-end there. As a practical matter, standing up for the truth would be hopeless endeavor, you would just make enemies.
Prosecutors have almost unlimited power to produce whatever evidence they want. The police go and tell witnesses "This evil guy shot this nice guy, he is evil, and it demands justice. Do you want to help us get justice by making a statement about what you saw?" Yes, I saw it. I saw this evil guy shoot this nice guy. It really is that easy to manufacture evidence. They don't even need to tell jailhouse witnesses you will get life in prison unless you say the defendant confessed to the exact thing he is accused of.
Or, if the witness doesn't catch on and say the story the cop wants told, the cop just doesn't write his name down. The defense attorney six months later, has no chance of finding that witness. That's not a rogue cop. That is state attorney Phil Archer's LEO of the year Ben Sprague. He hid the statements from Lofts witnesses who didn't say what he wanted, until the defense was lucky to find out about some of them a year and a half later on June 20, 2018. Sprague ignored the witnesses at Dollhouse who said they saw Love. Sprague never asked that dog walker what time did you let Love in that freight door. Not that we know about. Instead Sprague lost the video, so the defense couldn't know to ask the dog walker either. They didn't know there was a dog walker who let Love in until two and a half years later!
Where is the statement of any witness who said Mulrenin left Dollhouse with more than $2500? It is front and center in Sprague's arrest affidavit. Sprague: "According to witnesses Mulrenin left the club with a substantial amount of cash totaling upwards of $2500." I have not seen one statement from one witness who said this. What happened to those witness statements? According to Mellinger, they had $7000 cash at closing. According to Carico the club was closed, Mulrenin was in the office doing books and smoking in a bad mood, and then he got angry at the girls who were still there, and left. Somewhere in there has to be another witness. Was there $7000 - $2500 = $4500 left the next day? And if so who had that $4500?
Mulrenin told Barbara Mellinger, or told some unnamed person who then told Mellinger, that none of the dancers got to cash out their dancer dollars from credit cards, because there weren't enough cash receipts. Presumably Mellinger then went home. Mandi was still there. According to Dollhouse video with Neisha and Mulrenin, and her recorded phone call with her mother, Mandi stayed long after closing. Someone other than Barbara Mellinger said he witnessed Mulrenin had $2500 in dancer dollars that he got tipped, and cashed them out when he left. That same witness would know if Mulrenin told Mandi to come to his house and he would cash out her 100 dancer dollars or whatever little she had, where none of the other girls would know about it and demand to cash out their dancer dollars also. But the name of that witness is unknown.
There is a video statement from Gorewitz at 1:00 PM on 12/28/2016, and a video statement from Carico and Cintron at 4:00 PM on 12/28/2016. There are no video statements from any time in between, and there is no statement from Big Mike. This is Big Mike who said somebody saw Love at Stars the previous night, and heard Jackson was at Dollhouse looking for Mulrenin even though Big Mike wasn't there. He would probably know Jackson was at Stars all week and was at Mulrenin's house all week, and had been fucking Mulrenin. And if Big Mike said that to Sprague, Sprague would throw that statement away because it was not consistent with Sprague's narrative. So we have no statements from Big Mike and many others.
Is it more likely Sprague threw away some witness statements? Or is it more likely Mandi went out dressed in stripper clothes every night that week according to her roommate, and cell towers show there is no place she could have been except Stars and Dollhouse for 26 hours at night that week, and yet not a single witness who saw her there ever thought to tell police, or tell anybody police talked to, that she was there all week? And we have no idea who provided this $2500 number Mulrenin supposedly got in dancer dollars tips. Mulrenin's own list says eight dancers with 16 actual boobs only made $4960 in dancer dollars tips.
Barbara Mellinger, the Dollhouse bartender/manager, did a deposition in February of 2019, where she revealed Mandi came into Dollhouse and applied the previous night December 12, 2016. Mellinger said this is why Mandi filled out two job applications. Mellinger said she already knew this, when she went on the stand at Scott Love's trial and acted like she had no idea why there were two job applications. They asked her on the stand did a girl come in and apply? Mellinger said yes. She didn't say the girl came in and applied twice. The lawyers argued over how Mellinger could authenticate two applications, when Mellinger only said Mandi came in and filled out one. Mellinger misled the court. She did not tell "the whole truth."
After more than two years, this is the first time this was revealed by any witness that Mandi was at Dollhouse the previous night! Mellinger said she knew this from "rumor." She didn't want to say who said it, she thought it is funny to hide facts and witnesses while Mandi sits in jail without bond. Everybody at Dollhouse had to know this, and had to know who said it, who was the source of it, who saw Mandi there the previous night. Sprague interviewed valet parker Gorewitz, he didn't say Jackson came in the previous night. Sprague interviewed assistant manager Carico, he didn't say Jackson came in the previous night. Somebody said it, and they kept it a secret. You don't think Sprague said "Mandi murdered your boss" and somebody said to him "She was here on Monday also"?
Why wouldn't Sprague help witnesses keep secrets? Why wouldn't Sprague throw away witness statements? Who or what institution is going to stop him? Nobody. I guarantee you he can throw away witness statements all day, and nobody cares. When you or your family member gets arrested, nobody will care when police throw away witness statements and hide the names of witnesses. There is not an institution in Florida to punish or audit it, or do anything whatsoever to prevent it. You show me that institution.
Denise Smith's 911 call was thrown away. That enabled her to go from a story with no gunshot, to a story with a gunshot five minutes before Mulrenin came out, to a story with a gunshot right before Mulrenin came out at Mandi's trial.
Sprague threw away the name of the dog walker who let Love in the building. I am sure Michelle Ervin said his name. And Sprague threw away any witness statement the dog walker might have made. And Sprague threw away the video of the dog walker (and "lost" the hard drive) until two and a half years later when I bugged them and Athaide accidentally put it back in. And Sprague threw away the timestamps on the video of Love going in behind the dog walker. And in place of that name and that witness statement and that video and those original timestamps, Sprague substituted a file hand-typed by Detective Dean called "Lofts Video Review by Dean.docx". Detective Dean who wasn't even there, and not the person who was there and let Love in, is now the witness of what time Love came through that door.
It is comedy. But on the island populated only by children that is Seminole County, that is taken as serious police work. That is the standard of excellence of a "detective."
Remember, Mandi May is Buffalo Bob. She tied up a guy, tortured him, shot him. It's like State Attorney Phil Archer just locked up Charles Manson. Mandi will serve a longer sentence than Manson. Do they not care there is a "rumor" Mandi was at Dollhouse the previous night, like Tex Watson was at Sharon Tate's house the previous night? Do they not want to know whom Mandi talked to or met with the previous night? Is it possible someone at Dollhouse tipped Mandi off about Mulrenin's cash box, or helped Mandi plan the shocking crime? Nobody cares. And the reason they don't care is because they know it's all a scam. The Dollhouse people know Mulrenin tricked Mandi to come over and probably raped her, and not the other way around. And the police know Smolarek's glove and bootie evidence is a scam.
Sprague wrote an arrest affidavit that said we need to arrest Mandi Jackson because WITNESSES said Mulrenin left with $2500 cash. And then he never provided any evidence or witnesses, which I am sure would have existed, to support his central theme. Instead they said fuck it, here are some jailhouse "witnesses" making up garbage two years later about the Manson family hiding in cars and using black Glocks and drugging people and ransacking the apartment and signing "fuck you" like "healter skelter." Original case is a scam? Fuck it, we will just pay some girls to invent crap, Mulrenin had $13k in his pocket.
They literally replaced Sprague's missing $2500 witness with 15-time lying felon Julie Madara who simply said $13k. People are psychic in this case to count money they have never seen. I don't doubt someone literally handed Madara Sprague's police report and said "Say Mandi confessed to this" to save Sprague the embarrassment. Or to save Phil Archer the embarrassment of making Sprague LEO of the Year.
Who in a planet of 8 billion people is going to stop some mediocre old scumbags with a crooked scam to take some young girl's life for sport? Nobody. Human beings live and die like animals.
When it comes to employees of the state, it is like a Nazi wall of propaganda. The technician at the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Christine Murphy, who matched the bullet Smolarek planted in front of the love seat, to the gun Smolarek staged underneath the bra, was discovered to have done a lot of things wrong in her work matching bullets to guns. So they had to fire her. But the primary institution for investigating wrongdoing and pursuing justice in the State of Florida is allergic to the truth, and can't let it be used to protect the innocent.
If they tell you exactly what Christine Murphy did and fire her for it, that truth is admissible at trial. So the Florida Department of Law Enforcement will provide you with a shamelessly dishonest letter that Christine Murphy simply *retired*, and she did so with the highest respect of her peers and a reputation for excellent work. And according to case law, that is all you are allowed to tell the jury. Who is going to stop the executive branch from lying and victimizing the innocent by hiding the truth from the jury? The voter?
Don't get me wrong, I am not trusting local attorneys to come up with their own rules of evidence in each case. They are even crookeder and stupider than the pointy-head ideologues in the high courts, in addition to having the constraints of time and money. The poorer defendant with the worse lawyer, would lose the case right in front of some backwoods judge based purely on local politics, before the jury even saw the first piece of evidence.
I am just saying case law and rules of evidence have gotten too complicated and ambitious, to where the process has been corrupted and the right to a jury trial has been lost. The rules of evidence should be simple and conservative, to where a "judge" can throw out anything out that suits him, but only be forced to do so by a higher court in some set of broad original circumstances which I wouldn't even know, beyond coerced confessions. Except only the defendant has an extraordinary and unique Constitutional right to show anything he wants in his own defense.
You say restoring the asymmetric rights of the accused is not fair to victims of crimes. Life is not fair to victims of crimes, and you cannot chase a utopia. There is not a law of physics or of God which says "If Jack kills Jill, Joe must kill Jack." So there is not a symmetry between prosecutors who lie to prosecute, and defense lawyers who lie to defend. The authority of a prosecutor to run around as an aggressor, and insert himself into the affairs of total strangers, is granted only with the greatest restraint. The authority of an individual to defend himself cannot practically be constrained.
Privacy is a natural right to protect yourself, because man is naturally evil and aggressive. Man will use whatever information he can get, to do evil to any person he can take advantage of. The right of a defendant to keep secrets is sacred. The right of a stranger to invent accusations, to make up stories to fill the void created by the secrets which privacy is composed of, is zero. The difference is as sharp as the difference between consensual sex and rape. The voter does not have the moral authority to confer a right on any prosecutor to invent lies about someone.
Most nations give great legal protection against the various examples of privacy violation. So if Mandi Jackson were to lie about what she did in a room with someone, that is her right. That is not my opinion, that is our cultural standard. But if the prosecution were to make up stories about what she did in a room with someone, that is the gravest transgression and taboo. Both in my opinion and our cultural standard. The contrast about who is doing the lying, is as strong as the contrast between me entering my house, and you breaking into it.
That is why Detective Sprague needs to invent baseless stories in affidavits, as a trick to break the moral standards of our culture and nation. And absolutely some moral perspective needs to be restored, in a political environment where the voter has lost sight of the basic values of liberty and justice and become a benighted mob.
Prosecutors who insert themselves into the affairs of others, and exceed their authority with lies, are murderers. Whereas defendants who lie to escape justice are guilty of no additional crime, because nobody would bother trying to deny them this right. The right to defend yourself is sacred. The right of prosecutors to attack strangers beyond their authority, for political ambition or to humor the mob, is zero. So prosecutors who attack strangers, and not defense lawyers who defend only their own, must be prosecuted for lies.
Judges who try to fix cases with arbitrary restrictions on what evidence a defendant can present, are criminals to the extent their own vanity has lured them outside their proper authority. A less ambitious and complicated system of justice which errs on the side of innocence is not what voters demand. Voters are well known to throw away their own rights in pursuit of something that twinkles for a moment. Voters have to understand that the modest system of innocent until proven guilty is like Churchill said of democracy: The worst system, except for all the others. But I know, in nation after nation, voters clamor for a system where the worst get on top and the voters themselves end up being killed like flies.
With all the new technology like video and fingerprints and DNA, police and prosecutors should be able to do better than ever even without bizarre restrictions on what the defendant can say at trial. Prosecutions should be possible even with a restoration of the right of the accused to tell the jury the truth, by showing a simple picture from the crime scene, or by saying the firearms analyst was fired for incompetence. By comparison, prosecutors who still need to resort to coerced jailhouse confession scams when provided with so much new evidence science, have to be the laziest most crooked people in the history of public justice.
Judges, the judicial branch, in theory have a narrow power, that is sort of a subset of what the arresting officer has. They can block evidence and dismiss charges. But as a practical matter, local judges are not going to use their power for the benefit of the defendant, even when justified and appropriate. Because it is a lot of work with no benefit for them. Because police and prosecutors are much better politically connected than the accused. And any time lower-court judges do anything, the voter comes back as a mob with some new law to take push back their power and discretion, like mandatory minimum sentences.
If the defendant is held without bond, the defendant will very quickly be broke and often mentally incompetent and have zero friends, and nobody will even know the truth to advocate for the defendant. In Mandi's first six months held without bond, I think the public defender traveled the three hundred feet to the jail to visit with her once. Though it may have been twice, and definitely not more than twice. And of course she was drugged and held in solitary, and even her family would be recorded and used as witnesses if they tried to talk to her. After that point there is no political cost, only a benefit to all parties involved, to falsely convict her and take her life away.
Once people who read the newspaper think the defendant is guilty, the executive branch can get away with any crime. Like ordinary Germans, your own neighbors will build the railroad. Boondock greiferin like Stewart Stone will make a career out of it. The trial by jury means nothing, if the lies are constructed before it gets to the jury. The jury is more like a final demographic focus group of registered voters, to test if there will be a political cost or a reward when the innocent are sentenced to death. The average struggling circuit court judge has no political incentive to stick her skinny little neck out.
The judges of the Florida Supreme Court, through their Innocence Commission, discovered that prosecutors were victimizing the innocent - literally taking the lives of innocents - by coercing and suborning perjury from jailhouse witnesses. The only appropriate and effective remedy, which would be the prosecution of prosecutors who victimize the innocent, was of course not available to these judges. And the executive branch is never going to do it. So the remedy proposed by The Innocence Commission is the only type of remedy available to the judicial branch, to give an extra "unbiased" jury instruction about jailhouse witnesses.
The judges say they are afraid to usurp the power of the jury by simply blocking the jailhouse witness or having a motion hearing to determine if the witness should be allowed. They say if a judge decides which witnesses are reliable, that inappropriately redistributes authority from peers to judges. In fact, this power has already been inappropriately redistributed to prosecutors. A prosecutor can reward and punish a witness who says one thing or another. Certainly the prosecution in Mandi Jackson's case did not reduce the sentence of any inmates who said Mandi Jackson professed innocence. I am a witness to her claims of innocence, and I have been offered nothing.
But if I were to drive over to the Dollhouse and start paying people to say one thing, and locking people up in my basement who said another, I would be prosecuted. So the power to decide which witnesses are reliable, has been inappropriately redistributed to the prosecution. It should be illegal to pay witnesses based on what they say. They say paying them is necessary to balance out Julie Madara's fear that Mandi's father will kill Madara for lying that Mandi confessed. But remember, it is illegal for Mandi's father to discourage Madara's testimony in this way. It should also be illegal to encourage Madara's testimony with reward and punishment by anyone, but most of all by a prosecutor who faces no threat of prosecution from his peers, no sanction whatsoever for wrongdoing.
It is almost like this is a unique area of the rules of evidence, where family members of the accused are expected to take matters into their own hands in the street, for the process to be unbiased. They are a fourth branch of government. Mandi's father literally and clearly has to attempt to kill Julie Madara, to balance the reward promised by the prosecution, to get to the theoretical utopian starting point of balance between jury and prosecution, idealized by the participants in the Florida Supreme Court's Innocence Commission. Meanwhile Jessica Reiche Jones who testified for the prosecution, as well as many other witnesses, lived within a few minutes drive of Mandi's father. None of them were paid to testify, and Mandi's Dad never drove to their house, and nothing bad happened to them.
I would be totally in favor of letting the jury who convicts a criminal, also decide if his promise to perjure against an innocent citizen would mitigate his crime or be a cause for mercy to reduce his sentence. And I would be totally in favor of opposing counsels getting to make arguments in front of a jury as to whether a jailhouse witness should receive a reduced sentence based on the quality of his testimony. But the jury doesn't get to decide whether the jailhouse witness gets a reduced sentence. And opposing counsel is not even there to present any counter-arguments, nor are the past victims of the convict informed or consulted, before the judge signs the deal to reduce the sentence of a convicted victimizer. So the very existence of a jailhouse witness is an affront to the jury and due process and justice. And it is a crime against the public when this most aggressive and sociopathic victimizer of the innocent is put back on the street as a reward.
There is a case before the Florida Supreme Court which contemplates a policeman who violates the rights of a defendant like Rush Limbaugh by seizing his medical records. The remedy available to judges to "deter" this crime by a policeman - to substitute for derelict prosecutors who are complicit in the crime, and for the lack of an adequate institution to prosecute police - is to suppress the evidence and set the guilty defendant free. So now two crimes have been committed, by defendant and policeman, and the accepted remedy for judges to deter crime is to set both criminals free! You can see why judges have a political problem. Whereas the cop who violates rights and victimizes the defendant will not be blamed by the voter when his defendant escapes punishment.
It's a system where prosecutors operate like chess queens, and judges like knights confined to the single motion of setting criminals free. Judges are afraid to usurp the power of the jury in the case of a blocking a jailhouse witness who is an obvious liar. But they are not afraid to usurp the power of the jury by simply setting a criminal free before there even is a jury, in the case of an illegal search. The political response is a voter trying to balance this out, by granting more power to unchecked prosecutors. Idiot judges through their misguided activism, have inadvertently provoked a voter backlash and a system balanced in favor of prosecutors before cases even make it to the jury.
If judges did not try to front-run the democratic process, by setting criminals free as a "deterrent" to crime, surely voters would seek a remedy to their friends and families having their rights violated by police and perjuring jailhouse witnesses. They would clamor for an institution to deter this behavior through prosecution of the prosecutors. By not doing everything in their power to see more cops and lying jailhouse witnesses incarcerated, judges have eroded the proper role of the jury in our justice system. And they have encouraged vigilantism, the exact opposite of their ideals.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement, told me it is the job of local defense attorneys, to prosecute local police for tampering with evidence. But in reality it is a public problem. Policing of the justice system by judges is totally ineffective. There needs to be some kind of Police and Prosecution Commission in the executive branch, created by a new act of the legislature. But voters on both sides are too stupid, and judges are too self absorbed and geeky to take a political role in educating the voters.
When you turn over justice to the police department, a lot of criminals are going to get away and there is nothing you can do about it. Suppose you see your neighbor come onto your property, take your bicycle, and leave. If the first thing you do is dial 911, you may never see that bicycle again. And your neighbor may just deny it, and he will never get in any trouble. And there is no change you can make to the system to improve on that.
If activist judges and left-wing politicians make it harder to punish criminals, you cannot fix it by giving police more power or giving prosecution witnesses the same protections as the accused. If there are arbitrary obstacles to police pursuing justice, you have to remove specifically those obstacles, not try to balance them with arbitrary power. Maybe you are trying to balance out some liberal judges who tilt the scales away from justice, but your solution is not fixing or undoing what the judges did, it is just victimizing the innocent. It is replacing the guilty in prison with the innocent.
Every time leftists do something to release the guilty, Republicans do something asymmetric to imprison the innocent. Mostly in the judicial branch, to avoid offending larger voter populations in other areas of justice. And then Democrats get elected. Crooked lazy cops are not the solution. They are the cause. They are the gas in the tank. Starting with the first criminal who was ever released because of a coerced confession, or an illegal search. Lazy crooked arrogant dipshit sadistic cops are the itch that won't go away until people have scratched away the entire justice system.
Can you imagine if ambitious politicians demanded universal healthcare, then made it affordable by immunizing doctors against malpractice liability? That is the cheapy product the tough-on-crime crowd gives us with universal justice, and police and prosecutor immunity for any misdeed. Police need to be paid more, to attract higher quality employees and make it more competitive, and squeeze out the crooked dipshits like LEO of the Year Ben "Brady" Sprague and Alison "Squeaky Fromme" Smolarek.
Police in the USSR had unrestrained coercive power when they tried to catch serial killer Andrei Chikatilo. They used hundreds of investigators, psychological profilers, it was the most advanced investigation of its time. They obtained numerous confessions, and even executed an innocent person Aleksandr Kravchenko for a murder Chikatilo committed. Kravchenko's own wife was coerced to lie for the prosecution, and Kravchenko was executed to satisfy the family of the victim. Chikatilo went on to kill 50 more people while the police were bogged down in false confessions, and the charade and illusion of justice their arbitrary power was able to put on a facade of. Because a parade of arbitrary power and force and false convictions is a lazy and stupid man's diversion from actual information and evidence and justice.
You have to accept that in a public third-party justice system, criminals are going to go unpunished. Everything you do to try to bump up that rate of justice beyond the disappointing and imperfect amount you can get honestly, just results in somebody's granddaughter like Mandi May or your own, being locked up for something she didn't do. You build a bigger net, it catches the slow and the mentally incompetent and the politically unconnected, not the people who are actually doing the victimizing. In Mandi's case, they actually put sick felons, habitual victimizers, on the street where they will certainly create more victims, in exchange for plain lies to get Mandi's conviction.
The next person who suffers from the wrongdoing of Julie Madara or Maletta Young, will have no idea that State Attorney Phil Archer sent that criminal to live next door to them, to create the illusion of fighting violent crime in an imaginary home-invasion robbery, which was really just a door-knock altercation between Mandi Jackson's soon-to-be ex-boyfriend and her new pimp. Phil Archer is just a white-trash dirtbag trying to dress up and take a ride on the gullible voter as a tough-on-crime Republican, while shamelessly victimizing somebody's granddaughter. A brain-damaged little slut he assumes nobody will care about, is a convenient prop in his scam. You are at greater risk from Julie Madara, than anybody ever was from limp sex toy Mandi May Jackson.
The girls at Gadsden prison told me the first place they spotted known violent aggressor Kaylee Simmons when she got there, was "working out." Kaylee's mind is simple, it is consumed all day with thoughts of fighting and violence. She attacks people and gets in fights in every jail she goes to. That is the girl they let out of prison early, so they could lock up a girl who gave her boss a blowjob and bound his wound to stop the bleeding and went shopping with his credit cards. It's a scam that they are fighting violent crime. It's a scam that they are fighting fentanyl when they gave Maletta Young two years. The only excuse is that they are dumb as boards, and the voters in Seminole County are even dumber. They are not even Republicans. They are backwoods redneck heathen dirtbags, who think they are supposed to be Republican and don't even know what it means. Safe local districts create national election losses.
The appropriate remedy is for judges to advocate for the prosecution of police and prosecutors. If only by documenting their crimes, and presenting this documentation to the governor in a noisy public way. You can't count on defense lawyers to publicize wrongdoing, they are timid, it makes enemies in their community, it doesn't make them any money. This is understood to be a public problem that cannot be solved by lawyers of individual defendants. The public needs to be informed, to make an informed choice.
There is a new law in New York that allows accused criminals to inspect crime scenes. Like someone accused of burglary can go to the house he was accused of burglarizing. A sheriff near Albany complained this is "re-victimization." Accused criminals can also now get the names of witnesses sooner, and prosecutors are unhappy about it. Did that sheriff ever arrest a policeman for hiding a witness or staging evidence at a crime scene? Did that prosecutor ever charge a policeman whose evidence got thrown out because of an illegal search?
Is it even practical in that sheriff's job to do something like that, to police the police? Or wouldn't that require an independent outside institution? It is because police and prosecutors and Republicans don't offer good solutions, that people run to leftists for bad solutions. You cannot just demand that the public trust police detectives. You have to earn the trust, someone has to audit and certify it. Or stay home and admit that police can't catch every criminal.
Are we really going to let leftists win elections and appoint judges, and let the legislature turn the justice system upside down, because sick fucks like Detective Sprague and Prosecutor Stone are so precious to us? Prosecute these scum. Then police will be celebrated again. Just like they sold more stock than ever, after the creation of the SEC. Because stock promoters were protected from having their reputations damaged by the worst actors among them.
It is the height of dereliction of the duties of the Governor, to simply assume criminals will be set free by judges to make up for his spineless abdication of powers in the policing of bad actors like State Attorney Phil Archer. Spineless governors feed an appetite for activist judges. This in turn leads to actions by the legislature such as mandatory sentences, which deprive juries and judges of appropriate discretion, and create further political backlash, again as a consequence of spinelessness and lack of a moral compass coming from the executive branch. This is why there are libertarians, and young people and idealists who do not turn out Republican when they should. The Republican brand needs to be fixed. Do Republicans enjoy winning by 100 votes against socialist nihilists?
The Governor needs to stop the cycle of criminals being set free as a remedy for his inaction, and innocent citizens being victimized. Start prosecuting low-profile bad actors in the law-enforcement community. The current reactionary process will only lead to further polarization and dissatisfaction from injustice on both sides of the political aisle, and invite out-of-state agitators and propagandists such as George "Soros" Schwartz. There is a seeming inevitability to turn Florida permanently Democrat. Because the Republican Governor is a shiftless pussy under the thumb of his wart-infested wife that is the hick justice community. People won't tolerate crooked prosecution from white-trash scammers on a power trips like Phil Archer. They will go Democrat, and the whole state will end up like Chicago.
The Trayvon Martin and Rodney King and Big Mike Brown radicals have fried Republicans brains with "hands up don't shoot." They have confused Republicans into becoming promoters and enablers of moral decay. Just because some leftist calls policemen evil, doesn't make it right to pretend the product is perfect, to lie and say some pasty dipshit is a hero when he isn't. Republicans are less interested than the gun control crowd in actual statistics and science, when it comes to police misconduct and false convictions. It's just a mindless mob on both sides.
Crooked cops are smart enough to not victimize people who look politically connected. But the people who aren't know it, and vote Democrat. And the pool of voters who have never been harassed by some confused asshole arrogant cop is finite. You have to prosecute a crooked detective like Ben Sprague. That is the best thing you can do to help all the cops who aren't crooked. Every criminal claims the police did wrong. That is why the SEC doesn't wait for private citizens to march and beg them to investigate, when a stock goes up before a merger announcement.
You have to prosecute a prosecutor who pays jailhouse witnesses to say nonsense in a murder trial. In Mandi's trial, prosecutor Stone even told the jury some of Madara's statements were unreliable. I don't understand why Republicans would print invitations like that for radical leftist attorneys. I don't understand why Republicans would print requests like that for more garbage case law. I didn't know Republicans in Florida were really that dumb. They like a garbage justice system. They like systemic problems which can be falsely attributed to racism, and used by Democrats to paint them as racists every election. The systemic problem is there is zero deterrent to cops and prosecutors who victimize the innocent. And unlike every other area of law, investigations are initiated by crooks.
More than 140 people have been exonerated in murder cases involving jailhouse witnesses since 1966, when the Supreme Court allowed the scam. That is the source of 90% of the opposition to the death penalty right there. That is the source of 90% of the costs when you try to implement the death penalty. If you like the death penalty like I do, and you don't like the crazy costs of death penalty cases, then you should be in favor of the death penalty for prosecutors whose jailhouse witnesses are adjudicated liars. That's justice. Do you like justice?
The stela of Hammurabi in 1754 BC codified "If a man has borne false witness in a trial, or has not established the statement that he has made, if that case be a capital trial, that man shall be put to death." That is Prosecutor Stewart Stone when he paraphrases jailhouse witnesses in his closing arguments. How have we gone backwards in 4,000 years, and become hippies who let our fellow citizens kill each other like animals without consequence? You can get a mandatory minimum life drug sentence, based primarily on the coerced testimony of incarcerated drug felons! The consequence is generations of Democrat voters, especially in districts where local Republicans can spare votes.
Republicans are for liberty and justice, not for rehabilitation and forgiveness, and certainly not for crooked dirtbag prosecutors and lying cops. The best thing the Governor can do, is demand and sign legislation to create an independent oversight body in Florida with executive powers to police police and prosecutors, similar to how the SEC is an iron fist in Manhattan. Call it the Police and Prosecution Commission. Create and fund it, and design its powers, with the PPC Act. Then you won't have to leave it up to the ineffective judicial branch to try to protect the innocent with their silly Innocence Commission, their little jury instruction, and their sole power of setting criminals free as a deterrent to crime. Then you won't make an easy target for the DOJ to come in here with their own bully agenda, the next time some misery leftist with a soft manner like Barack Obama gets elected.
11. TRIAL OUTTAKES - 2019
One of the more touching moments of Love's trial came when, to prove Love's guilt, Lofts apartment manager Michelle Ervin remembered how [sex-addict cokehead battering pimp] Mulrenin was a generous man who liked to make anonymous gifts to other residents at Christmastime.
The real story is Mulrenin was having early-hours parties all the time where his neighbors could smell marijauna smoke. Next thing two disabled sisters who lived in the building had their Christmas decorations stolen. The most likely story is Mulrenin's drug guests stole the Christmas decorations. And Mulrenin was trying to protect his own self from any trouble, by replacing them anonymously without admitting to anything.
There was another incident the jury never heard about, where patrolman Uzzi met Michelle Ervin because an unaccompanied female minor had "escaped" from Mulrenin's apartment and was wandering the halls. Child Protective Services came and got her. But like with the Christmas decorations, Michelle Ervin handled it in her office, and nobody ever went upstairs to check inside unit 515.
Maybe the unaccompanied female minor was the drug guest who stole the disabled sisters' Christmas decorations. The jury would never know. When Love's lawyer Nielsen asked Barbara Mellinger why Mulrenin left Rachel's in 2001 - he was convicted of racketeering and prostitution - the prosecution objected and Judge Recksiedler wouldn't allow the question.
But they were allowed to tell the jury that Love was convicted of robbery around the same time.
Do you think it might be relevant to understand what might have happened, when a 52-year-old man who had a 21-year-old girl at his house, was previously convicted for a prostitution racket? Relevant to using your "common sense" as prosecutor Stone put it? Remember, the prosecution alleged the young girl Mandi tricked the wily old pimp Mulrenin, proved it according to the jury. (They hid that Mandi was stoned out of her mind, not only setting off the fire alarm, but already smoking weed with Neisha at Dollhouse.)
Which person's conviction might be more relevant to the jury, given Love was 16 years old when he was convicted of robbery, whereas Mulrenin was a middle-aged adult working as a strip club manager for the same employer, when he was convicted of prostitution, racketeering, and battery? So much for a trial by jury. (The same people who hide that indisputable fact from the jury, argue the jury has an inalienable ancient right to hear any garbage a jailhouse witness can invent to get out of prison, no matter how much physical evidence it contradicts, and without anyone being allowed to utter anything close to the l-word in front of the jury, much less reveal the established scientific truth about the jailhouse witness process in general.)
Mulrenin had a Violation of Probation on his racketeering conviction. His probation had been transferred to Michigan, I believe. And Michigan is where Mulrenin got arrested and violated his probation, and got dragged back to jail in Florida, it seems. Using your “common sense,” would a man with that experience call police after a fight in his apartment? Is it advisable to use your common sense, when you assume the Court would tell you these things?
There was a funny moment in Mandi's trial that is typical of Stewart Stone, the prosecutor. Mandi's lawyer was saying something about legal philosophy and the Innocence Commission, with regard to jury instructions. He mentioned the famous death penalty case of Clemente Aguirre-Jarquin as an example of an "innocent man" who was convicted and later had his conviction overturned. It's the case where an illegal-alien restaurant worker came in after the murder looking for beer, and got convicted of the murder.
I don't know what happened, but it is generally accepted the victims were probably killed by their own family member. The State Attorney could have chosen to retry the case, but in the end they chose not to. Probably because it is the prevailing wisdom the defendant was falsely accused. Not only was the evidence not strong enough to retry Clemente, but the Seminole Sheriff said they were investigating whether they could charge the family member with the murder instead, after they let Clemente go.
Stone saw fit to shout in the middle of Mandi's courtroom "Clemente is NOT an innocent man!" Stone is unusually short. People seem to accept that Stone argues his motions by shouting, to compensate for it.
It is worth noting multiple witnesses claim a family member confessed to the murder Stone thinks Clemente is guilty of. So Stone does not actually believe confession witnesses. Not even when they aren't felons being coerced to claim they heard a confession, to get out of prison. Is that evil that he knows he is using liars?
Stone was extremely determined to prevent Neisha Cintron from telling the truth about what happened the night Mulrenin died, and giving a window into Mandi Jackson's mind and intentions. Cintron was the only witness at the trial who could tell you what Jackson was actually thinking before she went to Mulrenin's apartment. Everything else is circumstantial, gossip. At Love's trial, when Recksiedler asked who is this next witness, Stone actually said "Neisha Cintron, the one who talked to Jackson at the end of the night." That is not in the transcript. But that is how aggressive Stone was to make sure Cintron lied that she didn't meet Mandi until the end of the night. Cintron was a hostile witness who needed to be led, to hide what happened throughout the night.
And then Stone actually told Cintron on the stand "I don't want you to tell us anything that Mandi Jackson actually said to you." What Mandi said after closing, right before she left to go meet Mulrenin, is that she wanted a different dress to wear the next night, because Mulrenin did not like either of the two dresses she brought. And Mandi said she would pay Neisha when they both came in to work the next night. Stone's extreme effort to embargo these facts of what Jackson was actually thinking, implies a consciousness on Stone's part that Jackson is not guilty.
Mandi told me from prison every single witness lied. There are many reasons for that. After three years, people's memories change. When they read things in the paper or hear gossip, their memories change to what they read in the paper. When they are told Mandi is Charles Manson, they change their story to be good people and fit the police narrative and get justice, making Mulrenin look better and Mandi look worse. And of course the prosecutor directly coaches witnesses to lie, to fit the prosecution narrative.
The prosecution spent literally hours getting the judge to block the defense showing what Mandi was there for (and did not steal in 79 minutes of ransacking), marijuana in Mulrenin's apartment. Marijuana was in three places, in two bags, and in plain sight with a pipe on the kitchen counter. Hiding that was a main subject of both trials.
The very first trial witness was a software engineer, a precise man, Jerome Ashcroft-Thew. In describing how he could hear what was going on, he described how the previous tenant in Mulrenin's apartment had loud parties he could hear, and the previous tenant in Mulrenin's apartment had marijuana he could smell. He said there were multiple different tenants, not Mulrenin. But he was very precise to make sure to add, he had not heard or smelled anything like that in a year or two, presumably since Mulrenin moved in. Software programmers add lines with precise purposes. Ashcroft was also precise to say the previous parties went until 2AM, not 6AM like this one.
Anyone but the jury knows, and the property manager later testified another day (when the jury forgot the point), Mulrenin lived there that whole time.
It was always Mulrenin, the noise and marijuana. And as property manager Ervin and Officer Uzzi said, the parties were always until 6 AM, after the strip clubs closed at 2 AM and Mulrenin got off work. Under cross examination, Ashcroft admitted he did not actually know it was a previous tenant, and not Mulrenin the whole time. If you know this case and this trial and this prosecutor, you know he was coached to lie that the noise and weed were from a previous tenant. Ashcroft was coached to add very precise lying lines he later admitted he did not know, to hide that Mulrenin always had noise and marijuana smoke at 6AM. That is how willing and easy a precise man, a total stranger with no direct interest in the case, is to lie under oath.
Even Mandi's own roommates, were coached meticulously for two trials, to avoid saying Scott worked in paving. Everyone but the jury knew, Scott worked in paving. Scott is a redhead, pale as a ghost. He had at least two straw hats, the one he wore the night Mulrenin died, and another placed recently in his closet. His roommates admitted he always wore work clothes, which included long-sleeve cotton shirts, and an orange vest. He always wore work clothes and boots, just like he was wearing the night Mulrenin died. Scott even had a pay stub from a paving company that showed he worked the week Mulrenin died. But his roommates were coached over and over to say a pale guy who works in paving in Florida, and who wore long-sleeve cotton shirts and work boots every single day, and who was thoroughly documented to own two straw hats, never wore a straw hat before. What was he doing with that worn-looking straw hat tossed recently in his closet? Carrying gourds in it like a pilgrim?
The second-most bizarre part of Scott's trial - behind his own testimony - was the gluttonous physical relationship in the courtroom, between the State Attorney Victims Advocate and Mulrenin's sister. They were both giant aging women who presented themselves very neatly and properly, like putting ribbons around a decommissioned Greyhound bus. They looked very similar. except Mulrenin's sister being slightly softer and more feminine, and the State Attorney Victims Advocate looking slightly meaner and more masculine.
Sitting two rows behind them in the courtroom, they appeared to be in a lesbian relationship that would have been more appropriate in a darkened movie theater. The Victims Advocate was constantly digging her giant arthritic hooks deep into Mulrenin's sister in all parts of her body, and aggressively kissing her. If Mulrenin's sister had been sobbing or something, I can understand comforting her. But I only ever saw looks of calm, or sour anger on her face. It was as if the Victims Advocate used moments when Mulrenin's sister might have needed some comforting, and every other moment also, to cop a feel in an aggressive way.
At the time, it seemed as if Mulrenin's sister reciprocated the bizarre display. But at Mandi's trial, Mulrenin's sister sat with a different Victims Advocate, a young fat guy. And the giant arthritic female Victims Advocate only came in for a grab and peck on the cheek once in a while. Maybe they broke up. In any case, it was so bizarre and perverted, nothing I write here can fully express it.
Mulrenin's sister made an impact statement that his family over 1,000 miles away missed him. What they missed specifically, was getting phone calls from him at the holidays. Mulrenin's family was so proud of their son, they put in the obituary only that "he died suddenly." I am sure the families of little girls he took advantage of, and sold into cocaine and sodomy, will not miss him. It is okay to paint the dead as better than they were, but not for the gratuitous and insincere purpose of aggression in taking the life of a young girl, who gave Mulrenin exactly what he wanted.
If you read Love's trial transcript, don't put 100% faith in it. Half the time I went looking for some exact thing I remembered, it wasn't there. When Judge Recksiedler asked who the next witness was and they brought in Neisha Cintron, prosecutor Stone said something like "Neisha Cintron, the one who spoke to Mandi Jackson at the end of the night." It matters because Stone was reminding Neisha what he talked to ger about on January 10, 2019, that she would leave out everything that happened earlier in the night and lie that she only met Mandi at the end of the night and got her phone number.
I also remembered Michelle Ervin saying of the dog walker who let Love in the building that "he moved out" while the video was playing. That is not in the transcript. I think it was prosecutor Sacco, but maybe also Stone brought up in front of the jury how Jackson was not wearing a jacket when she entered the garage. If that is true which I am not sure it is, then I am certain they said it in front of the jury because there is no other way I would know it. I think it happened near the "(Pause)" in the transcript before Stone asks Love on the stand about the jacket.
At Mandi's trial, Jackson Athaide mumbling about which system was seven minutes off, and whether it was all the cameras or just one, is missing from the transcript.
At Love's motion in limine to not allow his recorded jail phone calls, his attorney Nielsen said "But he still has the right to an attorney." That is not in the transcript, and may have been replaced with "All right. Understand, Your Honor." I still don't understand myself, how Love does not have the right to an attorney when he is in jail and being asked about his case on the phone. You could argue about it, but that is not what Judge Recksiedler does. Judge Recksiedler uses the simplest possible reading of case law when it blocks something the defense wants to admit. She says approximately that she is being conservative, and it is not for the lawyer in the courtroom to argue about, she will only listen to the appeals court.
One of the more disappointing moments in Love's trial came at the very end. Love was convicted of Count 1 first degree felony murder, with a mandatory minimum sentence of life without parole. The prosecution already reminded Judge Recksiedler it is a mandatory sentence and she has no discretion. Judge Recksiedler proceeded as follows:
Recksiedler: Okay. Count 1 is 30, correct, 30 or 40? Thirty.
Prosecutor: I'm sorry, Your Honor, Count --
Recksiedler: Count 1, the minimum, is it 30 or 40? I can't remember.
Prosecutor: Count 1, it's a mandatory life sentence.
Prosecutor: No -- minimum.
Judge Recksiedler came all the way from Lake Mary High School three miles away, and she had no idea she just presided over a first-degree murder trial.
The jury instruction had a bit of self-important language that made me laugh, when used by the children of Seminole County. It reads "For more than two centuries we have lived by the Constitution and The Law." What that means is that after all the lying was done, and the judge was too stupid to even know when the murder victim died, prosecutor Stone asked the Seminole County Circuit Court to let straight scumbag Julie Madara out of prison early for lying on the stand. And for victimizing someone.
This is the same Julie Madara who broke into houses like some flea-infested animal, and stole the irreplaceable heirlooms of people like Debra Behr and Christina Noerr, and pawned them for crack. Letting Madara out of prison for lying on the stand and victimizing someone is not the rule of law. It is the rule of a bunch of white-trash halfwits hiding their dumb heads in a low-rent shithole called Seminole County.
Some people are too dumb to aspire to such high ideals as justice and rational government. They are just like animals on a farm mindlessly trampling.
It was funny to see "honorable" Judge Jessica Recksiedler hand out the longest sentence of her career to someone who did not do what she is accused of, and was straight lied about in court. That is a nice thing God did putting Jessica Recksiedler on Earth so she could be born, participate in some dumb evil shit, and die like an idiot.
And lie and be self important and arrogant when they are the lowest people on Earth and too dumb to even be conscious of it. How do you become a judge when you are too fucking dumb to even know when the murder victim died? What a joke.
This is why they say "location location location" when it comes to real estate. Do NOT let your children wander into Seminole County.
12. CHRISTMAS IN WHOVILLE - Summer 2019
Something surprising happened in the summer of 2019. At age 24, Mandi Jackson suddenly grew the mind of an adult. When I first met her, I predicted it would happen around age 25 or 26. That was based on my research of brain injuries in young females, and normal times for human intellectual development. But I thought being locked in jail, and heavily sedated in solitary for so much of it, had screwed it up.
When I met Mandi in Miami, she seemed typical of a brain injury like orbitofrontal syndrome, though everyone is unique. She had no fear or understanding of people. She was totally selfless. It is hard to explain the sort of lack of sense of personal role or ambition or danger, other than to say you have it, she didn't. I predicted she would be victimized or taken advantage of, and end up strangled in a dumpster. So I justified a course of action which I calculated would reduce her exposure to such risks, and give her brain time to re-route.
I had done some study on recovery from brain injury in children, and I believed it was simply a matter of buying time. In the Spring of 2015, she indicated that she wondered if I could be her pimp. I said "One day you will smarten up, and on that day you would ask me what I was thinking." When I said that, I pictured that "one day" to be definitely by age 30.
My scientific theory had more details than I can remember today. But it was still not very detailed. I remember thinking about how I stopped driving too fast at a certain age, for no particular reason. And I theorized at some point Mandi would sort out an understanding of the world around her, and she would realize people are evil and dangerous. She would awaken to the concept that people could pose a risk to her, or something like that. In the meantime it should not be too hard to just get her off the street, and make her aware of some of the risks she was taking, and give her an easier way to spend her days.
For that I would need to slowly develop rapport with her. To do that I would have to show her some respect and interest. And to do that, I would have to inadvertently validate what she was doing, having sex with old guys. By giving her a good experience with a stranger she met, me, I would be encouraging her lifestyle as safe. You can't just walk up to strangers at the gas station and lecture them. I had to have sex with her, and then beg her to have sex with me again. That way I wouldn't just be a stalker whom she perceived as disapproving and trying to sabotage what she was doing. That way it would make sense why I was around her, and talking to her all the time.
So I would basically have to express approval of things she did, until I had some trust and credibility with her. She would have to believe I wanted her to where she could count on me, and believe I liked her to where I had her best interest in mind. And then I could spend that trust and credibility towards my own agenda, presenting certain ideas, and disagreeing with her about certain things.
The role I chose, to try to have some effect on where Mandi found herself a few years down the road, was a romantic suitor. That may seem strange. But my experience with other girls whom I wasn't romantically interested in, and whom I only alienated and didn't have much of a positive influence on, led me to conclude that being a romantic suitor would be a more robust approach. Girls are accustomed to romantic suitors and comfortable with them, more so than old guys lurking around and doing things they don't want or understand.
Plus, all is fair in love and war. Being a romantic suitor would give me an excuse to play rough sometimes. I had to, as part of that credibility. If I didn't, she would think I was a total pussy. Like I could shoot her pimp out of jealousy or something.
I sometimes pointed out to Mandi's mom how my role would have been more effective, and I could achieve my objectives more easily, if Mandi actually liked me. I did consider it was remotely possible Mandi could have some sort of awakening, where someday she might. But I wasn't betting on it. My example for this theory was a girl named Nikki whom I met when she was 18. Nikki did like me on the first day, but it wasn't until years later that she sort of gained consciousness to where she actually got along with me.
Nikki was sort of a mute sex object when I first met her wandering around Miami Beach meeting strangers. Her mother was a German woman who met a Mexican guy in Mexico. He used Nikki in child pornography. So she ran away or something, and ended up in a Mexican drug rehab as a child. They did some kind of behavior modification with negative feedback, where they tied her up and sprayed her with a hose. The son of the man who owned the rehab did the hosing, and he raped her. She wasn't telling me this as like a whining story. I think she was saying what I was expected to do with her.
Nikki's mother worked the night shift, at the front desk of a motel where Mandi Jackson sometimes stayed when she came to Miami. And Nikki's mother slept all day, while Nikki bopped around South Beach meeting old guys. One thing led to another, and I eventually hired Nikki to clean my house. Because I was too busy.
Nikki would show up to clean my house hours and hours late, at 9pm, with a big, almost empty bottle of some type of liquor. I worked on my computer, and she cleaned in silence. At midnight my house would be sparkling, and my projects would show great progress. And Nikki would leave drunk and angry, with $50. I didn't realize paying her to clean my house, was supposed to be a pretext for something else.
So Nikki would knock on my door at all hours like a raccoon, and I really had no idea what she wanted or what to do with her. She would pour tears, though I can't remember when or why. She punched me, to try to get me to punch her back and rape her. She wasn't getting what she wanted, and she disappeared.
A year later Nikki came back, and it was a different person. She met a guy in eleventh grade in high school. She lived with him for a year in Texas, with his father and his uncle in like a trailer. Somehow, living in that house with three guys for a year, developed her mind. She was an adult, she was like a normal person. I was able to connect with her. We could talk. We were even romantically involved for a short time, until of course she met some teenage guy with a cool hat and ran off with him. Nikki proved that a young girl can develop the mind of an adult, and suddenly get along with a guy, whom she previously could not get along with.
So when I met Mandi Jackson, I figured in a year or two she would just awaken to some facts of life, like old guys are dangerous. Or we would at least develop some rapport, to where she would trust me when I explained it to her. But a year and a half later she still had no sense that old guys are dangerous. In fact, she thought old guys were really easy sex addicts who just handed out money, like me. And the world was a happy wonderland of Walmart gift cards and sex.
Her brain re-routing and developing the mind of an adult was still a long way off, and her trusting me was having the totally wrong effect. So I thought maybe there had to be some bad experiences for Mandi to learn from. Maybe she has to be taught to be scared, like a bear that comes to campers for food. So when she called the police on me at my house and police asked if I wanted to press charges against her, I had about three seconds to think about it and say "yes."
Given about three seconds to consider it, I thought this will scare her away from driving around town crying and having sex with old guys all day. All it really did was teach her never to talk to police if something bad happens to her.
When Mandi got locked in jail for using Mulrenin's credit cards as if they were mine, it ruined the study. Whatever development was going to take place in her brain, it was going to be demented and deformed by the jail environment. She would learn crazy lessons from conniving sociopaths, and bully guards, and being locked in solitary and drugged all day. That is the world she would "wake up" in, and it would leave her with permanently maladjusted psychology. After however many years waiting to go to trial during this critical development period, she was going to be permanently fucked.
Though I did hear she had become interested in reading simple books in jail, like junk mystery crime novels. So I sent her "Shogun", because it goes into great physical detail, to create a setting for the introduction of strange and simple concepts of human behavior. But I don't think she ever read it.
According to the girls I talked to from the jail, Mandi slept for 23 hours a day. She only woke up for an hour each night until they gave her more pills, and she went back to sleep again.
The first strange thing, was Mandi asked me to come visit her in the Orange County jail around July 2019. Understand that Mandi never liked me much, and only talked to me because she thinks it is her job to please old guys. I asked her what she needed or what was going on, that she wanted a visit. I thought maybe some other guy has been visiting her all this time. And they had a falling out, and that freed up one of her three weekly visits. She told me she just wanted to talk.
Then she told me she likes listening to the radio, WDBO, I don't hang out with girls who consume any type of media. Because they are always parroting left-wing dogma, or sermons from the Kardashians. Like Guy Montag's wife. So I tuned in to see what WDBO is about. They were talking about adult stuff, like mortgage strategies. Wtf?
Then she told me she had been reading books by a woman named "Diane Chamberlain" that really connected with her. She was strongly affected by the experience and very much wanted to get more of them. I looked up "Diane Chamberlain" and I read about a book called "The First Lie." And I knew Mandi woke up somehow, she had been red-pilled.
There is that line in the Matrix "born into a prison that you can not smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind." Mandi was starting to taste the walls of the prison she had been her whole life in, since she fell out of that tree.
Now Mandi talks about all kinds of things, and says things she never would have said or thought before. She even talked about the psychology of strippers. If you ever saw her smiling in the strip club, she never behaved like she had any notion that there was a psychology of strippers. Then suddenly in the summer of 2019, she was boasting to me of knowing what the other strippers were thinking.
So I don't know what happened, but I am very surprised that suddenly Mandi Jackson seems pretty normal. Just in like starting in the summer of 2019. Like she suddenly developed a normal adult mind regardless of environment. I will give you an example of something she said during a video visit. Though it is not limited to just one thing she said.
I asked Mandi what she tells the other girls in jail about me. She said she tells everyone I am her sugar daddy. I said I never wanted to be called her sugar daddy. I said the key difference, is a sugar daddy is someone who is happy with the arrangement. Mandi responded approximately "I know exactly what you mean." Wtf?
In 2015, I had been searching for months for a way to point out to Mandi that our relationship was not the best thing. But without being so harsh that she would run away. So I finally came up with the word "weird." I said "Our relationship is weird." Mandi had a fit, and just about burst into tears. She said "It's not weird, I'm your ho." I wanted to tell her she was "naive" but there was no equivalent word that would be more familiar to her.
So how does a girl, surrounded by nothing but crazies in jail for three years, come not only to know how a guy feels about his relationship with her, but to understand why, and even empathize with him? From what well in the jail did she draw this information? How does she suddenly know what I am talking about? Nikki was at least in a house with three guys for a year, to learn something about people. I don't think there was that much just in some Diane Chamberlain books.
Maybe I was right after all, it really just happens spontaneously after the passage of time. The idea that Mandi Jackson could suddenly grow a normal adult mind in the middle of a jail surrounded by crazies, is like Christmas coming in Whoville without ribbons, tags, packages, boxes, or bags. As usual, I have a theory. There is only one explanation.
The only explanation is these ideas were in her head all along. But the part of her mind with these thoughts, was not properly connected to the part of her mind that talks (psychologists would say "plans a pattern of expressive behavior"). But suddenly she has a working mind, with experiences forming into thoughts, which then form into words and actions.
I felt like Bruce Willis in "The Sixth Sense." Seeing Mandi Jackson suddenly start talking like my niece, in a way that fits with what I was predicting five years earlier, is probably the most amazing thing I will witness in my life.
On the other hand, I kind of miss Alice in Wonderland. I wish I had one last drive with her. The world already has enough college girls.
Mandi told me she wanted to be a waitress at a sports bar. I said I have been telling you for years that is a good temporary job. It's not something for the long term. But don't you want to use the money to go to school and become a welder?
She doesn't want to be a welder any more.
I thought some other girl in the jail must have told her this, that it is cool to be a waitress at Twin Peaks. So Mandi is just repeating what some older girl said. Why do they have to tell crazy shit to my angel baby? But now I realize it is coming from Mandi, she really does want to be a waitress all of a sudden. And will almost certainly never go back.
Wanting to be a welder was like some cool autistic tomboy thing. Like a girl from Discovery Channel with a lot of tattoos. Now she is just an ordinary chubby Jewish girl with health problems, trapped inside the twisted fantasy of a bunch of degenerate Seminole County hicks. Though she is still easy, and a sucker for whiny sociopaths. Maybe that will go away.
I thought Mandi's mind had matured to the point where she could have testified in her own defense at trial. But the jury should also be aware the person talking to them, was far different and suddenly more intellectually developed than the child she had been three years earlier.
But there was no way her control-freak lawyers were going to put a person on the stand whom the jail doctor put on four different psychotropic drugs to keep from crying and screaming all day, who gained 100 pounds and developed major health problems during her three years in jail, and whom they basically saw as drooling on herself.
13. MANDI MAY JURY - October, November 2019
If you stand at the entrance to courtroom 5D and look out the window, you will see an expanse of overgrown pavement and rubble. This was once Orlando developer Syd Levy's vision of "The Mall Of America" Seminole County style. It was called Flea World.
A few decades later, Orlando and Orange County had grown into an economically vibrant area. People in Seminole County had a similar vision for their own future. So the popular and successful Flea World was demolished to make room for a new mixed-use development called "The Reagan Center," a beautiful and progressive campus of polished steel and glass.
However many years later, after however many promises, grand plans, and signed contracts, The Reagan Center is still a pile of rubble. And Seminole County is still a heroin-addled backwoods shithole. It is a perfect metaphor for the people who built and work in the criminal courthouse across the street: Trying to be "The Reagan Center" but stuck as derelicts selling fantasies.
Mandi's jury was just a rough bunch of people right off. Much to my disappointment, it was not like Scott's. It was just a completely different group of people. Maybe it was a different time of year, or a different part of the voter registration cycle, so they got the jurors from a different place. Was it because of a different election cycle, Pelosi instead of Trump? The whole juror pool to select from, everyone who walked into the courtroom, were like some miserable blue collar people in their own little angry unhappy worlds, who were sick or crying or didn't want to be there.
One of the potential jurors was a sort of top-heavy woman like a sack of potatoes, Amanda something, who kept putting her dirty feet up on the benches in the back of the courtroom and acting offended. She told me she knew Mulrenin. I told her they probably weren't going to pick her to be on the jury, but she still had to stay through the process. If she said she knew Mulrenin and immediately got to walk out, probably everybody would say they knew Mulrenin like a run on the bank.
I told the judge one of the jurors knew Mulrenin, and they brought her up and put her in the box with the other jurors. Amanda sat right in the jury box, and made a loud and self-important declaration that she had inside information from knowing people involved in the case when it happened and, based on what she knew, she could not possibly find Mandi innocent. Like OMG no way could I find her innocent based on what I know! That was a nice thing for all the other jurors to hear.
Then that prospective juror Amanda, from Mulrenin's close social circle of aging single white trash females, rushed disrespectfully out of the courtroom like it was sick and immoral to even give Mandi a trial and not execute her right there. She flashed me the two-fingered victory sign as she passed by, to signal her victory over the dumb fucks who wasted her time and suggested there should be a fair trial and she should consider Mandi's innocence. Judge Recksiedler called to her and stopped her right as she was slamming through the doors.
When Mulrenin died, Amanda the juror received text messages from other people who knew Mulrenin. They told her what happened. They weren't there. What they told her happened, came straight from Detective Sprague. So you have jailhouse witnesses in the witness box, who read Sprague's narrative in the newspaper thanks to Jose Baez. You have normal witnesses in the witness box like Neisha Cintron and Denise Smith, who changed their testimony based on what Sprague told them. And now you even have jurors in the jury box, who got Sprague's narrative secondhand, and imagine they know what happened and know Mandi is guilty and have a passionate interest in justice.
All this on top of grotesque Alison Smolarek with her fake little-girl voice, who no boy at UCF ever noticed. And she will do whatever she has to, to get even with an evil stripper in this unjust world that God created, and win the favor of her male coworkers at the ASPD. There is crime in Seminole County for sure, all these predictable lowlifes taking the life of a young person Mandi May, for no other reason than being stupid and jealous and self-important. And Phil Archer stands behind the worst tendencies, the aggressive evil nature of man, to take the life of a young person.
Inevitable in the right to a public trial and a jury of peers, is a mingling of public and peers. The people of Seminole County have no problem holding Mandi without bond, or giving Mandi 70 years for something she didn't do. Mulrenin might have lived another 10 years (or 300 measured in female employees), and will be dead for at least 5 billion years (if cokehead pimps and not young girls are the citizens that matter). That is still not serious enough to sequester some low-level Seminole County clock-punchers who insisted on using their tablets in the jury box. So it was inevitable that public observers of the trial were going to come into contact with members of the jury.
So I sit down on a bench outside the courtroom, and there is a potential juror there who was dismissed, a civil lawyer, talking about how civil law is different from criminal law. And so I made a joke with this guy 10 inches away from me, that the way suing people works is funny. And some aggressive person had the self importance and stupidity to complain that I was trying to influence jurors. So they brought me in front of Judge Recksiedler, to stand trial for juror influence. This in a courtroom where not just every regular witness and every jailhouse witness, but even the jurors, have been exposed to and influenced by Detective Sprague's narrative before they even made their statements, before the jury is even chosen.
The Seminole County Sheriff's deputies who dragged me in front of Judge Recksiedler for supposedly influencing jurors, are the same ones who distributed Sprague's narrative in the newspaper to the jailhouse witnesses! They are the arm of coercion that forces these jail girls to make up lies to save their own selves.
With one hand the Seminole County Sheriff's deputies are telling the girls you are locked in here until you provide us information on other girls' cases. And with the other hand they are handing the girls in jail a newspaper with Mandi's case in it. I am the one accused of trying to influence the outcome unfairly? When are they ever going to be held to account? These people are sick and evil and retarded. They are the ones who locked Mandi in solitary and drugged her up and threatened her with jailhouse witnesses, to try to get her to take a 25-year deal to become a witness and testify against Scott Love. That is not influence?
But that wasn't enough, they had to distract the jury some more. They said something to the jurors that made them think I was interesting. The court asked the jurors about me, I don't know what it was. After some aggressive asshole stuck his finger on the scale by accusing me of juror influence, something happened back in the jury room that spooked them or got their attention. So I had jurors following me into the elevator, approaching me and sitting next to me in the hall, and standing in line next to me at the metal detector asking "Who are you? Why are you here? What is your involvement in this case? Mystery Guy!"
After that, I had to go around telling jurors who sat next to me, or stood next to me in the elevator and said hi "Don't talk to me" to keep from getting arrested or thrown out of the courtroom. Because it is all on camera. After that, Judge Recksiedler told the lawyers the jurors said I was "creepy." So I know the jurors ignored all the testimony and instructions, and just went straight out of there and tried to look up everything they could find about the case on the web, to figure out who I was.
And I imagine the fascinated jurors spent a long time looking for me on the web, until they found everything about the case except what they were looking for. Because I don't think there are any pictures of me on the web, or indications who I am. But even worse if there were.
Judge Recksiedler talked to the lawyers about it after the court was in recess on October 29, 2019. Mandi's lawyer Matthews Bark told me in the back of the courtroom, in front of all the observers, that when the jurors insisted they hadn't spoken to anybody about the case, Judge Recksiedler thought they were lying. So I sent an email saying this has to be a mistrial.
Some aggressive asshole in the courtroom was riled up and tortured with lies about the facts of the case before the trial even started. And he didn't like me. And he used whatever special audience he was granted, to influence the court to harass the jurors, to the point where his obsession with me, and his preconceptions, rubbed off on the jurors. And when the jurors claimed they had followed instructions to avoid outside discussions and report violations of the rules, the Judge herself told the lawyers she thought jurors were lying.
The jurors were told the lawyers would not talk to them. And the family members of the victim and the accused were given their own clear sections in the courtroom, so jurors knew who they were. But nobody properly instructed the jurors to ignore participants observing the trial in the gallery. And when they became curious about a participant in the gallery, the court indulged in the nonsense, and the lunatics took over the asylum. Because a mistrial costs a lot of money, and is a political problem for Judge Recksiedler. So they just carried on with this crazed distracted jury following their "creepy" "mystery guy" around the courthouse.
I also think there may have been a mentally-disabled person on the jury.
In the winter of 2010, I was walking up to the free shuttle bus in downtown Orlando, the Lymmo bus. There was young guy sitting on something you weren't supposed to sit on, like maybe a bicycle rack or a fence or a sculpture, I don't remember. I thought who is this young punk who is so cool sitting where he pleases?
As I passed him I saw he was not that young. Definitely in his twenties. But the way he was swinging his legs and bobbing his head, his mental age was less than his actual age. He was not being rebellious in his choice of seat, he was just out of it and not conscious of what he was doing.
I got on the shuttle bus. A moment later the young guy and an older dark-haired guy in maybe his early 40's got on the bus and stood in the front. They started talking to each other loudly so everybody could hear. And you could tell they were mentally disabled. And they were funny and entertaining, and they knew it. They were putting on a show.
These two guys were making jokes and saying things, and having a fun time. Sometimes the younger guy would say things that were a little too retarded or private or inappropriate, and the older guy would reel him in and say that's too dorky or gay or something. I remember thinking these two mentally disabled people are funnier and have a better sense of humor, and are more entertaining and free-spirited, than the bitter politically-correct people on TV who are supposed to be funny.
I had done some research in the past on the genetics and personality traits of Williams Syndrome. But I never met anybody who actually had it. And I decided that is possibly what these two guys had. They were very sociable and outgoing, and talkative. But obviously they were mentally disabled and did not have the complete portfolio of intellectual skills that most people have.
I thought maybe they were homeless like all the oddballs that drift around the sidewalks of downtown Orlando. Or maybe they lived in some kind of housing for mentally-disabled people. And they were probably in some kind of life-skills program and some other services that they have downtown, and just spent the day bopping around downtown Orlando.
They were gay, and they were boyfriends. The younger guy was better looking. The older guy was maybe a little less retarded, but he really loved his young boyfriend. And they were planning on leaving Orlando together, and going back to the city where I guessed the younger guy came from. To the best of my memory, he said Great Falls, Minnesota which doesn't exist. It could have been Sioux Falls or Cedar Rapids.
So the younger guy says something like "When you see Great Falls it's so awesome you're going to be amazed. You're going to be like AAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!" And the younger guy leans his head back and goes goggly-eyed and says"AAAAAAHHHHHHH" to amuse everyone on the bus. And the older guy got a little embarrassed because he did not think Great Falls was that cool or that he would go goggly-eyed, and he reprimanded the younger guy to not be so dorky or something.
Whatever the city was, I looked it up to see what a mentally-disabled person thought was so amazing. It made no sense a person who wandered around the sidewalks all day would want leave Orlando and go to some freezing city in the northern Midwest. I found the city, and it had a small skyline with like a few shiny office buildings. And there was a bridge over a river where you could see the office buildings, like Cedar Rapids.
Anyway the point being, one of the guys in the jury box looked very familiar to me as being that same younger mentally-disabled guy from the bus eight years earlier. Like maybe he learned a lot of life skills and intellectually matured and registered to vote, and reported for jury duty. If it was the same person, and I'm not sure that it was, I would find issue with his capacity to weigh reasonable doubt in the complex circumstances of Mandi's case, and serve as a 12th member of a jury.
Another bizarre part of jury selection, was Prosecutor Stone seemed to be trying to stack the jury with black people. Or at least what he thought were black people. To me they sort of looked brown. Who knows what goes through his crazy deluded head. The defense sits about twice as far from the jury as the prosecution. And I was sitting even further than the defense. So it is possible the prosecution was able to see something about the race of the jurors that nobody else could see.
Stone objected to at least two of Mandi's lawyers' peremptory strikes, demanding the defense provide a non-racial reason for not wanting a particular juror.
I can only guess there is some case law that says if a prosecutor eliminates all black people from the trial of a black defendant, it is no longer a jury of his peers. And even though the lawyers in Mandi's jury selection were not provided with a self-identification of the race of jurors, prosecutor Stone took it upon himself to classify the jurors according to his own beliefs on race.
Whether there is some corresponding case law that prevents a defense from removing all jurors not the race of the defendant, I can't guess why there would be. Based on Stone's actions, there must be. But there is not as strong an argument that preventing a jury of the same race as the defendant is necessary to create a jury of "peers" of the defendant. It is the defendant, not God or the victim, who has a right to a jury of his peers. And you would think most case law in this area is to protect minorities. It is less often practical for the defense to remove all non-minorities from a jury to match the defendant.
To my memory, Mandi's lawyer Bark got rid of at least 15 jurors, and only two or three might fit Stone's system of racial classification as some race. This seems close to a random variation around the original racial makeup of the jury pool. If 15% of all potential jurors in the room were black, and something near 15% of Bark's strike were black or who even knows, there is no indication of a racial pattern.
But all Stone's objections to Bark's strikes, were openly designed to create a jury of a different race from the defendant. And to my memory, a disproportionate number of Stone's own strikes were probably from what Stone would consider the same race as the defendant. So the prosecutor, not the defense, openly and statistically acted toward a purpose of removing jurors of the same race as, and peers to, the defendant.
My guess, or at least my hope, is these activities go against the word, or at least the spirit, of case law, which is designed to prevent exactly this situation, a prosecutor removing jurors of the same race as the defendant. To me, it seems it should create a mistrial, or at least a new jury selection, as this sort of activity will only put the case back in court if it is not fixed while you have the chance. It's not nice to the taxpayer.
I cannot understand how this power to object to removing jurors, and demand a non-racial reason, would ever be appropriate when used by a prosecutor. If the prosecutor has some non-race-based reason for objecting to a juror's removal, then presumably the defense would want to remove the juror for the same reason the prosecutor objects. If the prosecutor doesn't have a non-race-based reason for objecting, then the prosecutor is the one trying to pack the jury based on race, with jurors of a different race from the defendant.
White strip clubs and black strip clubs are very different. White guys and black guys are very different. White guys are jealous and black guys are swingers. The victim Mulrenin was white, as was Scott Love. Very much so. As were almost all the witnesses white. A defense lawyer can't pick a juror more likely to understand what goes on in a white strip club, a jury of peers? It is another example of the bizarre perversion of the whole process by case law, towards a random outcome that has nothing to do with justice.
It really seemed to me as if some of the black jurors were bored and disinterested, and then became more interested in the DNA evidence because the DNA expert was black. Or at least she was something prosecutor Stone would probably call black. That is one of the things that rubs me wrong about it from the start, is who gets to decide which jurors will be labeled a different race and need a non-racial reason to be dismissed? Judge Recksiedler is the judge of shades blackness? Did she learn how to do that at Stetson University, or is it a special night class that judges take? I guess prosecutor Stone would be the teacher.
Can you object to the removal of a white juror, and demand a non-racial reason for it? What if the defendant is from Bangladesh?
Honestly, what value would a recent naturalized citizen from Samoa or Japan, or even Puerto Rico, have to contribute to the search for truth in this case? It is like some judge somewhere just wanted to be subversive and have the guilty found innocent and the innocent found guilty, to torture strangers with unjust outcomes, victims and defendants alike. Some sick judge somewhere had a goal to make people mad at prosecutors. And dipshit Stewart Stone comes along and says "Hey, look at me!"
I sincerely believe the judges who created case law are angry nihilists who wanted people like Mandi found guilty, to undermine support for the whole system and create anarchy. It's like a trap they set for benighted hicks who aspire to be "tough-on-crime Republicans." And prosecutors walk right into it and sow division, and undermine support for the Republican Party.
So right from the start, Mandi's trial was sidetracked and shaped by some crazy nonsense that had nothing to do with discovering the truth in this case. We are allowed to argue over the race of the jurors, but we can't show a picture of the simple reason Mandi was at Mulrenin's apartment, to smoke weed. Skin shade of the jurors matters, what Mandi was really doing at Mulrenin's apartment doesn't matter. You saw some cash in a box, juror is brown, and that is all you need to know.
Nobody knows why Mandi's cell phone was at Mulrenin's house four times that week, when Mulrenin's phone last pinged the tower, when he went over the balcony, when the 911 call came in, when he died, when they figured out he was shot, or where the sofa is with the alleged bullet hole in it. We don't know if he jumped or he fell, if he hit face first or legs first. We don't know what prescription his glasses were that were lying on the floor. We don't know what his medical problem is that he mentioned in his to-do list in his car. But we know if a brown person on the jury is a black or not.
Jury was racially balanced, bitch used his credit cards, case closed, dead at 21.
There must be a question on the bar exam: Does this seem normal to you? If it does not seem perfectly normal and you have no objection to it, you are not allowed to become a lawyer.
14. THE SMALL DETAILS - December 2016
I knew Mandi was innocent from looking at the tiny details. The behavior at the Lofts, the individual steps, the timing, made no sense as a planned robbery. Driving quickly into the garage. Saving a half-smoked cigarette.
Plus, I know Mandi. I saw there was a Denny's right before you got to The Lofts, that was open 24 hours. That must be where she left Scott Love, never imagining he would come in. Like she left Primo at Popeyes and Burger King and Walmart. Like she left Chris Dahl at Publix. Like she left her mom and little brother in the street. Like she left poodle boy at her mom's house, and Tywaun at Ale House.
The trial looked at the big picture. It tried to tie together the various general events into a robbery plot that made sense. Here is a girl, here is a guy who is dead, here she is using his credit card. The problem is a set of events involving Mandi, do not have the same explanation as a normal person.
You can make a styrofoam sculpture that looks like a car. You have to look under the hood, to find out it is not actually a car. You can have Mandi do something that looks superficially like maybe a robbery plot, if you don't look at the details. Under the hood is Mandi doing what she always does under there. She is having sex with old guys. The outward appearance is not what is really going on, especially not in the hooker business.
I don't care if Mandi takes a hot air balloon to meet the Pope, she is fucking him. And if the Pope spends two hours at GQ Jim's apartment drinking vodka, the Pope is getting more than a straw in his mouth. That is common sense.
That is not common sense if just some girl goes to meet the Pope. But that is common sense if you know anything about the girl involved. But there was nothing in evidence that would permit the jury to use common sense. Unless you want to say beyond a reasonable doubt what the average girl would be doing at the average guy's apartment, when that girl is not Mandi.
Mandi entered Dollhouse earlier in the night around 8:30 according to valet Marc Gorewitz and cell tower records. And she was at Dollhouse, or at Stars across the street which is the same business, at least 26 hours that week. The first thing Mandi did the next time she arrived at Dollhouse - the first time she ever arrives at Dollhouse so far as the jury knew, and when her plan to rob the manager began - was provide her real name, and her father's name, on a job application.
The last thing Mandi she did before she left work at Dollhouse - supposedly to go commit armed robbery on the manager - was 1) buy a stripper dress for the next day from fellow employee Neisha Cintron, 2) Give Neisha Cintron her real phone number with her name on the account and 3) text Neisha her real name "Mandi", in response to a text where Neisha sent her stripper name "Catalina." Neisha Cintron lied on the stand to hide these small details that did not indicate a planned robbery, and the jury never knew about it.
The prosecution showed Mandi's phone bill at trial to prove she committed a robbery. The phone bill proved it was her. But if she really committed an armed robbery, it is unlikely they would have her phone bill to prove it.
You could argue Mandi needed to put her real name on her job application to match her drivers license. And she put her work experience at the Veigle's original location, Rachel's, where Mulrenin also worked, because she needed to get the job. But Mandi would not provide her father's name as an emergency contact, for someone she was about to rob. She certainly did not need to buy a dress for work the next day if she were going to rob her boss, or provide her name and phone number to another employee last thing before leaving to do the robbing. And she didn't need to spend two hours at an apartment to do an armed robbery.
It is worth listing the things Mulrenin did, which make Mandi a criminal for tricking him to bring her home. He flashed money in a money clip. He displayed full shopping bags in his car, Neiman Marcus in the front, Macy's and Apple in the back. He promised to cash out her dancer dollars which none of the other girls got. He brought alcohol to the curb. He stocked weed he didn't smoke. All these things designed to be more interesting than a blob of slime.
That's the small details. The big picture is she used his credit card.
15. THE BIG PICTURE NARRATIVE - October, November 2019
She will do it in a car
She will do it in a bar
She will do it late at night
Just never in broad daylight
I don't believe you Mandi-Sam
I don't believe you give free ham
I mentioned a bunch of stuff that never came out at trial. Like what time did the 911 call come in? What time did Mulrenin go over the balcony? You would think that would be important to determining if Mandi is guilty. So why didn't Mandi's lawyers bring it up? Why didn't they go into the tiny details that erode the concept of a planned robbery, like Mandi buying a dress right before she left Dollhouse, to wear to work the next day. Are they crazy?
The reason they didn't bring it up is because they didn't need to, to raise a reasonable doubt. Because the only evidence Mandi did what she was accused of, was some creepy jailhouse witnesses who were paid to say what they said by an overzealous fantasizing prosecutor. And Mandi used Mulrenin's credit cards. Which doesn't prove robbery, unless nobody thinks to remind the jury it doesn't prove robbery. So Mandi's lawyers tried to use a big picture of what happened, rather than show tiny details to prove what didn't happen.
Carrie Rentz summarized the big picture by asking the DNA expert "The only DNA evidence that you found of Mandi Jackson was on a sweatshirt (with her boyfriend's DNA) and on a straw (with her boss's DNA)?" The big picture is what the fuck is Mandi doing there? It is a jealous boyfriend, she is fucking two guys at once. But there is too much weird stuff. The big picture is not believable, if you don't know Mandi.
This brings us to the main reason Mandi's lawyers used the strategy they used: Preconceptions. Anything people look at, they will try to quickly label it as something they are familiar with. Except black people, you are not supposed to do that. But when I say Mandi is a hooker, people say no, she is a "sex worker." They already have a preconception of what a sex worker is, and they want to project it onto her and tell me who she is. They can't be bothered to learn any actual details about Mandi herself. It's like in "King of the Hill" when Kahn says "No ocean, I am from Laos, it's a landlocked country in Southeast Asia." They respond "So are you Chinese or Japanese?"
Is Mandi an armed robber? Or is she a girl who drives around town secretly having sex with old guys and wrapping up wounds in duct tape and owns a BMW that her pimp financed in her name when she was a teenager, and the strip-club manager uses "dancer dollars" to make his employees come to his house. The jurors never heard of that second one before. And they are surely not going to avoid nodding off long enough to even absorb half of that.
Defense: Today's lesson? Southeast Asian geography. Let me draw your attention to this map!
Prosecution: Objection! What the fuck is this?
Judge: Sustained! If it doesn't have to do with whether Mandi is Chinese or not, I'm not allowing it.
So Mandi's lawyers instead tried to use the evidence to paint a much simpler picture, of something the jurors had seen before, a jealous dominating boyfriend. But it still sounded a little bit Laotian. So the jurors said fuck it, Mandi must be Chinese, armed robber.
I trusted Mandi's lawyers to know a Seminole jury better than I do. And now I better understand how their strategy resulted from what they knew. But they still didn't do a good enough job, because they never did anything to create any doubt about the authority of the police and prosecutors as being always right. They never drew attention to the lies and odd details that said "Don't necessarily swallow what these people tell you whole. These people can lie." I don't doubt that part of that came from being former prosecutors, who never say anything bad about police or victims.
First, Mandi's lawyers destroyed the jailhouse witnesses and did a good job. They could have done a little better on Kaylee Simmons, pointing out how what she said disagreed with all the physical evidence. I would have liked for the jury to see multiple pictures from inside the apartment to prove it was not ransacked and things were not taken. But that is the small details, and Mandi's lawyers looked at the big picture. Kaylee is an armed robber and uniquely unfortunate lowlife and bottom-feeder, who would say anything or do anything to anyone, to get less time in prison.
They did a great job destroying Julie Madara, to where I think Bark was more defending his fellow lawyer Carrie Rentz. Jailhouse scumbag witness Madara really had it in for Mandi's lawyer Carrie. Madara was saying some really low things about Carrie on the jail phone that I don't need to repeat. And I think Bark was zealous about going after her as much for Carrie as for Mandi.
I am not saying Bark slacked for Mandi. But his best and most zealous part of the trial involved Carrie. And I do think the jailhouse witnesses were effective as a distraction, to where Mandi's lawyers did not give the rest of the evidence the importance or energy they should have. So even if the jailhouse witnesses were discredited, they convicted Mandi by taking her lawyers' time away from the rest of the case they needed to worry about building. And they probably had the same effect of confusing and misguiding the jury to fixate on the wrong things. It is just a total disgrace to justice, that the taxpayer pays for the lowest scumbags they can find to take over a murder trial with irrelevant nonsense.
Then Mandi's lawyers presented their narrative of what happened that wasn't a robbery.
Problem is they can't tell the jurors what actually happened in Mulrenin's apartment. Because it is not "in evidence." Remember, only witnesses can introduce new information or new lies. But nobody explained that to the jury, so they expect to hear exactly what happened.
Mandi's laywers can try to sort of tell what really happened, by arguing how the evidence shows what happened. But the prosecution will object, and then it will be messy. And there are some reasons they don't want to try. First, they have some kind of unwritten rule that you don't say bad things about the victim. So if the truth is Mulrenin was a monster in there, they don't want to say it and have the prosecution say "objection, not in evidence." Second, there is really no evidence of what Mandi is there for. There is no evidence she is a hooker who fucks old guys for money. There was no evidence allowed she likes to smoke weed. So they can't really say much without the judge going crazy, except Mandi just thought Mulrenin was a great guy. Finally as local lawyers who know what the judge will say, they may foresee how the limited parts of the story they might be able to get across, could create more problems than it solves. For example, with the duct tape, which I will get to more later.
So Mandi's lawyers told a brief narrative that was a little hard to believe. Mandi was just a regular girl who went home with with a regular guy, and cheated on her boyfriend. They said Scott came in and tried to tie them both up, or I don't even know. They even said Scott's DNA was on the cable ties, which it wasn't. And then Mulrenin went over the balcony? I don't even remember, because it wasn't clear. Her boyfriend tracked her down and broke it up violently, and Mandi submitted to her boyfriend and went back to him. But the jurors maybe found it hard to believe Scott would come in and catch his girlfriend cheating and shoot the guy and try to tie him up, and then Mandi would go home with him and use credit cards like nothing happened.
The jury may be smart not to believe that, because it never happened, as I will get to when I tell you what I believe happened. But just because it never happened exactly like that, does not prove the prosecution's alternative explanation, that Mandi was a principal in a robbery. Something like what Mandi's lawyers described did happen, and not like what the prosecutor described. And the jurors were supposed to be able to figure out the basic idea of Mandi's narrative was right, it was something other than a robbery.
But what they were supposed to figure it out based on, that Kaylee said Mandi was trafficked meaning she was a teenage hooker who had a pimp, maybe didn't play into the jurors thinking as much as it was supposed to, to explain who Mandi was. As Mandi's lawyer Bark said to me, the jurors might not even know what "trafficked" means. So they never quite got that Mandi is a submissive sex toy who gets passed around by violent guys who are the boss of her.
It would have helped to know Mulrenin was a convicted pimp, since jurors probably think a strip-club manager is like a roller-rink manager. Then they might have understood these are not like normal boyfriends, where Mandi breaks up with one and goes to the other only after great deliberation and inner turmoil and consultation with her bestest of friends. These are guys who are much older than her who use her for sex and tell her what to do. And in Mulrenin's case, manipulate her with money and drugs like only a pro can, and Scott cannot compete with. And Mandi feels physically threatened by them.
The basic narrative of Mandi's defense, was that Mandi was hanging out with a new guy, running free, meeting new friends at the strip club where Scott does not want her to be. And Scott is some angry dominant violent guy who tracked her down and came and got her and took her back. And Mandi is a total submissive, who fell in line. The basic principal of that is true, just not to the extreme degree Mandi's lawyers represented.
First, nobody tried to tie anybody up. And so Scott was not as psycho and aggressive a woman beater as Mandi's lawyers described. But there was a technical reason Mandi's laywers went with that narrative, which I will get to later.
Second, Mandi did not choose to leave Scott and go to Mulrenin and have sex with him, and then go back to Scott, in the sort of standard romantic sense that jurors would assume, and found hard to believe.
It wasn't clear the kind of relationships Mandi was involved in. Mandi is a stripper and former teenage hooker with a brain injury. She went to Mulrenin and had sex with him because she has a fetish to have sex with old guys for cocaine or money, or just because she likes to have sex with every person she remotely likes, and to be raped. And she went back to Scott because she has no job and no place else to go and nobody else to go to, and still needed a place to keep her dog. And because psychologically, it is easy for someone like Scott to convince someone like Mandi that everything which happens to him is her fault for cheating on him, and she is in debt to him. And Mandi is eager to please everyone, whoever she is with.
Third, Mulrenin is an aggressive asshole sex addict who brings home employees all the time, and would very likely escalate if Scott knocked on his door. Mulrenin would probably even punch Mandi. So Mandi did not leave behind as much of a saint as the jury was led to believe, to go back to as much of a monster as the jury was led to believe.
So if Scott was not quite as much of a monster as Mandi's lawyers described, and Mandi is 10,000 times easier than the jurors would ever have guessed, and exercises a lot less discretion than most girls would going from guy to guy, and Mulrenin started a fight that got him shot in the leg and jumped off his own balcony for no reason, it makes a lot more sense that Mandi went from Scott to Mulrenin and back to Scott like nothing happened.
Jurors took it as totally trying to blame Scott for everything, when Mandi should have been more angry with him in the crazy narrative described. And more serious, not using credit cards. Like Bark was portraying Mandi to be more of a helpless innocent angel than they believed her to be. Though they didn't have that same problem with how Bark portrayed Mulrenin. And if Mandi really thinks Scott is such a monster and disagrees with what he did and liked Mulrenin, then why did she go back to Scott? Is she really that much of a helpless thing? Why would she want to hang out with a psycho? Even the way Mandi really looked the part in court, was not enough to convince them. The jurors did not look so great themselves.
Mandi looked stupid and helpless, but she looked smart relative to some of the people in the jury box. That is why there are 12 jurors, they can't all be stupid. I thought there must be two or three in there smart and thoughtful enough to understand what really happened, and at the very least get a hung jury. Though I couldn't say which ones just by looking at them. But I thought they were in there. I wasn't remembering the little problem that jealous boyfriends don't usually show up in booties. Smart people know that.
When I pointed out Smolarek's new lie about the gloves, Mandi's lawyer Bark said "Yeah, but it doesn't matter because none of it's Mandi's DNA." It doesn't matter if the jury thinks Scott showed up wearing gloves and booties like zeroth degree murder? In the end it did matter. Bark was worried there wouldn't be a single juror smart enough to understand who Mandi was, and the subtle points of his narrative, and the concept of reasonable doubt. What if you are just smart enough to remember the booties? It was a distracting bump on the road up Mount Smart.
The way Alison Smolarek said "Hi" to Mandi's lawyer Carrie in court, I think Carrie just didn't want to go after her friend in the local community. The prosecutor will lie zealously about some little slut from Orange County all day. Former prosecutor Carrie Rentz will not tell the truth zealously to defend her client, if the truth is that a member of her tiny hick justice community is a shameless evil liar taking the lives of innocents. Not even for $100k. Mandi is gone, forever. Carrie will never see Mandi again. Carrie and Alison still see each other every day.
Alison is nice, Mulrenin is nice, everybody is nice except that evil Scott Love.
(Especially those nice people who kept Mandi sedated in solitary with no bond before she was even convicted of anything. Especially that nice judge who wouldn't let you show the apartment wasn't ransacked. Especially that nice prosecutor who put forward more lies than I can mention here. Especially those nice jurors who just took a young girl's life because they don't think she sucked her boss's dick good enough. They never heard of "trafficked" or "racketeering" or "nitrous oxide.")
While Bark's narrative was a lot closer to the truth than the prosecution's completely wrong narrative, there were three missing facts that made him not believable to the jury:
1. Scott was not quite as much of a monster as Mandi's lawyers described, at least not in what happened in the apartment. He did not tie anyone up. But there is no witness from inside the apartment, and therefore no evidence of what actually happened in there that Mandi's lawyers can use to tell the jury. Remember Mandi is so drugged up her lawyers are afraid to put her on the stand. So saying Scott tried to tie Mulrenin up is the narrative Mandi's lawyers are stuck with if they don't want to complicate things. Scott did not really come in wearing gloves and booties. Her lawyers think it is great that Smolarek's insane cross-contamination scam made it look like Scott wore the gloves. But when Mandi then went home with Scott "Jason" Love, the jury found it a stretch. Not calling out Smolarek's evil perjury may have cost their client her life.
2. Mandi is 10,000 times easier than the jurors would ever have guessed, and exercises a lot less discretion than most girls would going from guy to guy (or from person to person in the case of having sex with old women). But it is not in evidence that she is a hooker and her lawyer is not allowed to say it. And there is no expert witness to say "This is how strippers are, this is what Mulrenin got into the business for."
3. Mulrenin is a lot more of a monster than Mandi's lawyers described, and may have started the violence that night (and very possibly jumped or fell off his balcony for no reason or a medical reason). But it is not in evidence that he is a convicted pimp or batterer or whatever else. And even if it were, Mandi's lawyers do not like saying bad things about the victim.
Scott was not quite as much of a monster, Mulrenin was more of a monster, and Mandi was way easier than the jury could possibly imagine and none of it was in evidence. Without knowing these facts, without knowing who was really involved, Mandi's lawyers' narrative did not seem plausible to the jury. They found the prosecution's far-fetched narrative more believable. That is far different from proof beyond a reasonable doubt of what happened. Only these jurors were too stupid to understand that fine point.
People who don't know Mandi May Jackson should really mind their own business giving someone a 70-year sentence. It's unbelievable to spend your whole life sucking guys' dicks, go home with your boss and suck his dick, and then get a life sentence for going home and sucking your boss's dick, because a bunch of strangers who don't know you just can't believe you really sucked his dick good enough. If it wasn't good enough for James Mulrenin, he shouldn't have brought her home.
"We don't think she went there to suck his dick. We think she went there to rob him." Maybe James Mulrenin knew something you don't you retarded hicks, you ever think of that?
It is unbelievable the State of Florida puts a young girl in a position where she has to beg for mercy by swearing she sucked her boss's dick just like he asked. What kind of sick fucking retards is the human race made up of?
One time we were sitting in Mandi's car outside Boston Market in Sodo Marketplace, and Mandi thought she was about to give me a blowjob. She thinks it's a game where if she can get me to stop bitching and lecturing for a minute, she wins. I shifted my position in the seat slightly, so that my dick for an instant pulled slightly back into my pants while I was shifting my weight. She thought I was putting my dick away. She exclaimed "No! Don't change your mind!" She must have sucked 1,000 dicks to misinterpret that small gesture as a guy putting his dick away.
And Mulrenin must have put his dick away 1,000 times, Mini-Jim can tell you. Strippers love giving blowjobs, they think it is funny that guys are willing to pay for something so stupid. I get called "complicated" because I am not interested. Probably all girls love it, but strippers don't care what people will say about them. They know guys who pay for it will keep a secret. Probably those dorky male jurors, or the one lesbian juror, or the black female jurors who don't know white girls, don't know all that. Maybe it was new to Scott Love also.
The jurors just assumed they knew something about Mandi. And why not, when the truth is not allowed in a courtroom even to save a young girl's life. And they were sure beyond a reasonable doubt she would be more likely to commit robbery than do what Mulrenin picked her for, what guys like Mulrenin always paid her to do, specifically because normal girls won't do it. You don't bring home a hooker to watch TV. And that is what Mandi Jackson is, a hooker. James Mulrenin brought home a hooker. A known hooker, known well in the strip clubs around Orlando. She was on backpage.com meeting strangers like me and fucking them every week for years. That is how I met her and I paid to fuck her 57 times.
The jury never knew anything remotely like that. Nobody ever said in front of the jury "James Mulrenin brought home a hooker" which is the plain fact. But the jury didn't need to know she was a hooker to raise reasonable doubt, because there wasn't actual proof Mandi did what she was accused of. Can you imagine going through six days of trial, and the jury never knowing the simple truth that Mulrenin brought home a hooker that night? And a darn good one. I challenge you to find a cute skinny blonde teenager that you can slip some extra money to that her pimp doesn't know about, and she will let you fuck her raw on the first night like I did.
It is a little hard to believe. I remember that second weekend I met her, we sat in that room on the first floor of the Starlite Motel and just talked. After a little while she got to wondering what the fuck is this guy thinking. So she looks right at me and says "I'm a prostitute!" That would have been some funny first words if she took the stand. Because I promise you the jury never had any clue.
And Mulrenin's sister is up there whining oh how terrible, I can't believe this evil little girl tricked my angel brother. Come to planet Earth you fucking retard, your brother brought home a hooker. And he sure as hell wanted a little 100-pound drug addled brain patient Mandi Jackson at his apartment at 5AM, to stick his dick in while he killed himself with cocaine, and not you or any member of his wonderful family who misses him so much. Go back to Michigan, your brother didn't invite you. Your brother would have wanted Mandi Jackson to tell you the same thing she told police: She wasn't there. So that you could keep living in your non-reality.
Mulrenin's sister doesn't think Mandi fucked her brother good enough. It wasn't enough to fuck her once, he has to fuck her a second time by getting so fucked up on drugs that he literally kills himself, and then his sister demands to bury Mandi with that old creep like the Pharaoh.
You saw Mandi's family sitting on the other side of the courtroom who you hated so much? You saw that old woman crying? Your brother lured her granddaughter with cocaine, and paid to use her as his sex toy. And now she has life in prison because of what your brother did, because he had no regard for what happened to the young girls he exploited for a living. He didn't give a fuck what happened to Mandi that night. Now he is dead and for the rest of the girls around here, it is the best thing that ever happened.
Mandi's lawyers asked lead Detective Sprague "Did you ever think maybe Mandi was being trafficked?" He said no, there was no sign of anything like that. I am curious, what would evidence of that have looked like, how would it look any different from what he saw? You think a 19-year-old blonde airhead with no job knows how to get a BMW financed? The only record her family even exists is they are all over the court websites for evictions and foreclosures. Her pimp financed that car in her name because he had bad credit, and he could not imagine little Mandi ever standing up to him and driving off with it. And she didn't, her family finally helped her, after months of her asking. And the pimp called her family "the KKK" afterwards. Every payment on that BMW except one came as a result some guy's dick going into that little girl.
A little girl with a brain injury and a BMW in 52-year-old man's apartment after midnight, and some psycho pacing around outside waiting for her, is EXACTLY what being trafficked looks like. And I really don't have a better explanation for why Scott Love was so patient while she was in there for two hours. Probably tampered video, right?
If the jury was pre-programmed with the alternate idea that Mandi was a hooker rather than a robber, they would have easily believed it was an angry pimp not a jealous boyfriend. If the prosecution wasn't in it for the sport of taking a young girl's life to make some scam claim about being tough on violent crime, they would probably have had an easier time convicting her of prostitution. And if the prosecution went that direction, the judge would have blocked any evidence it was a robbery, and then said "not in evidence" if her lawyers tried to say it was a robbery.
If idiot Detective Sprague said prostitution right from the start, the judge would have allowed the viagra and blocked the cash, instead of allowing the cash and blocking the viagra, And we would have seen photographs of the rubbers and sex toys in that second bed drawer that never even made it into evidence. Mandi herself hid from the other girls in jail that she was a hooker. You can lead the jury to planned robbery, prostitution, or a jealous boyfriend, just by what facts you hide. And the truth was hidden, and the verdict was wrong.
It wasn't a jury of Mandi's peers. It was a jury who knew nothing about her, and confused her with someone else. The rules of evidence wouldn't let them know who Mandi Jackson was. The rules of evidence are designed to make people look at the evidence, not the person. There was no actual evidence Mandi did what she is accused of, so there was reasonable doubt. But it didn't matter. The prosecution knew the evidence wasn't there. So they told the jury never mind the evidence, do exactly what the rules of evidence prevent you from doing: Use your "common sense." In other words, take a guess at what the evidence can't show you. Without even knowing anything, take a guess at what happened. What would the average girl be doing there. Is the average girl a hooker?
The jurors believed the prosecution, that Mandi tricked Mulrenin to bring her home based on a false promise of sex. The jurors might have given Mulrenin a little more credit. If jurors didn't fall for the trick that Mandi would actually go home and have sex with him, then why did Mulrenin fall for it? Mulrenin is a strip-club manager, not some dipshit who got called in for jury duty. It is not like he doesn't know girls.
If the guy whose business it was to know girls thought Mandi would go home and have sex with him, is it possible he knew something the dipshit jury didn't know? The truth is Mandi looked like such a child, Mulrenin wouldn't automatically believe she would go home and have sex with him. Even if she would in a second and said so. Not until she proved it. And Mulrenin knew she already had proved it. Because Chris Dahl knew and everybody knew the girl delivered. And that was her fourth time at Mulrenin's house that week.
The jury could not believe a girl would go from guy A to guy B, and then back to guy A, so quickly. She must have been with guy A all along. But the victim in the case disagrees. Mulrenin got into the strip-club business specifically because he knows girls with loser boyfriends will come in and fuck him for a job, and then go straight back home to their loser boyfriends. Mulrenin was in the strip club business, specifically to meet and bring home the type of girl who would do exactly what Mandi did.
Mulrenin was not hoping to get action from girls like witness Michelle Ervin, or the girls on the jury, who don't cheat on their boyfriends for a pile of cocaine. Mulrenin was also not hoping to get action from girls whose boyfriends had good jobs. Mulrenin was hoping for girls whose boyfriends are dysfunctional losers. Strippers are pleasers who want to be needed, so they pick needy dysfunctional losers as boyfriends.
A girl who did what Mandi did was not some unexpected evil girl who tricked Mulrenin. She was Mulrenin's primary target demographic, to exploit her dysfunctional situation. The strip-club manager knew strippers and what they would do, what he wanted them for doing, and why they would do it. He knew the situation they would be in, forced and willing to cheat on their boyfriends. The jury did not know. The victim knew more than the jury.
Mandi Jackson was exactly what James Mulrenin desired. She was exactly what he had designed his career for, and worked his whole life to acquire. And she gave him exactly what he wanted. Mandi May Jackson was James Mulrenin's angel baby. That twisted old creep was in heaven.
And she got two life sentences because she gave James Mulrenin exactly what he wanted, and her boyfriend didn't like something about it, something she or James Mulrenin did.
Does the fact that she placated her boyfriend by using the credit card prove she planned for her boyfriend to come in the apartment? No. It's all a scam, using a young girl with a brain injury, and taking her away from her family - and ruining the lives of two dozen people for decades to come - for sport. Because some old strip-club sleaze on OBT wanted his dick sucked for the 10,000th time.
Is that really what the taxpayer signed up for? To make sport of the same girls as a strip-club manager? I guess the easiest girl on OBT it is aiming high, a big catch for the lowlife government employees in Seminole County.
I am coming back a year later, to answer a question I have been thinking about: Why did Mandi's lawyer Carrie Rentz use the cheapest trial strategy possible? She didn't use any experts. She didn't try to discredit almost any of the circumstantial evidence and not any of the police who presented it. She didn't even try to get into more than a few details of the evidence, nothing like I did here. After the prosecution made their case, the defense rested without making their own presentation, and went straight to closing arguments. They never said any faked item was fishy.
The most obvious explanation is, Carrie Rentz wants to make a profit. Consider Rentz was sick and had a hard surgery recovery (and maybe froze her eggs) while this was going on. This is somewhat supported by comments from peers of Carrie Rentz who talked to me after they spoke to Carrie, after the trial. One said this was a winnable case, and asked me what went wrong? In the same breath she mentioned that in a case like this, the trial can take a month, not six days. Another peer asked me how much I paid Carrie. This suggests the possibility that after the trial, Carrie might have implied to them that cost was a factor in her decisions and the outcome.
The next explanation is the police are Carrie's peers in the local community. She was a prosecutor once, and may be again. It will cost her a great deal, to start attacking her friends on the stand and make them "brady cops". Particularly if she doesn't need to to raise reasonable doubt, when she can blame it all on Scott Love.
The final explanation is that Carrie is a white suburban Republican female, a member of the cop-worship cult, what in 2020 they call "Karens". Carrie was like a beautiful and cute sorority girl type, who married the tallest guy in her college class from the richest family. She is of that mindset that people who are involved in drugs shouldn't complain when they get life in prison. It is their own fault when police lie. And girls who choose to be involved with guys like Scott are dirt. They are all local farm animals, for people like Carrie to lock in a zoo when Carrie was a prosecutor. Carrie thinks it is good that faithful police fake evidence to frame the local drug people and lock them up, it increases the value of Carrie's home and her school district rating.
As a prosecutor, Carrie has seen defense lawyers attack police in a way that is almost silly, like they see on TV with Mark Fuhrman in the OJ trial. She saw cheezy lawyers make gratuitous and unjustified attacks to try to discredit police when she was a prosecutor, and the jury didn't like it. The jury thought look at this guilty man trapped in a corner, trying to blame these nicely-dressed police with a weak argument that is not even believable. So Carrie made a decision she was not going to be that kind of lawyer. She is not going to try to tell the jury that police are evil or try to paint them as liars. She is going to tell the jury what she believes herself, that Scott Love is evil. And Mandi is some stupid girl who is not as smart as college girls, and doesn't know to only date frat boys. So Mandi gets victimized by the white trash wife beaters that people of Mandi's class are stuck with.
Early on, I got the idea that Carrie didn't want to stand up for Mandi, because she felt Mandi's life decisions were wrong, and Carrie couldn't defend something like that, it made her queasy. She saw Mandi as guilty of doing bad things, of breaking laws, that Carrie would never dream herself of breaking. Carrie and her peers explained that a Seminole County jury is a bunch of squares who will give a 21-year-old girl life without parole just for being involved in drugs. But it was not the jury, Carrie herself believed this in her heart and it caused her to hesitate and not be zealous. Carrie wasn't deflated because she thought Mandi was innocent and found out she was guilty. She was deflated when she found out she would have to defend someone who was involved in drugs, a lowlife that she has spent her whole life thinking should be locked up to protect her own family in a cartoon suburbia. Mandi is a little piece of hopeless garbage, to a flawless woman, a former Assistant State Attorney like Carrie Rentz. And police who lie are upstanding, we are not going to get into this accusing the police of lying thing. They do a job.
16. JURORS AND GOOGLE - November 2019
So-called witness Julie Madara said of Jackson "she put G in his drink without him knowing it."
Prosecutor Stone suggested what Madara was saying probably wasn't true. He said "as a matter of fact you don't know if that's what occurred, but that's what she told you." Stone again suggested his witness was unreliable and confusing hearsay in redirect, with "as far as the G is concerned, and Ms. Jackson telling you about that, it kind of touches upon what I asked you when I was asking questions earlier. As a matter of fact, you don't know that's what happened. That's just simply what Ms. Jackson told you happened."
And defense attorney Bark in his closing argument says "There's no GHB, nothing that even begins with a G in the toxicology report... there's not even a word that begins with the letter G in this toxicology report. And I'll get back to the -- why that relates to Ms. Simmons' and Ms. Madara's testimony. But if GHB was involved, don't you think you'd be able to find it in the over 200 exhibits in evidence?"
Both witnesses, Simmons and Madara, said there was someone named Chris Dahl involved. Defense attorney Rentz asked lead detective Sprague "Do you know who Chris Dahl is? Did you go out and interview Julie Madara? Did you do any investigation to find out if what she was saying was true? Did you interview Kaylee Simmons? Did you ever uncover any evidence, or have you ever heard of someone named Chris Dahl having anything to do with this case?"
So a juror looks online and sees Mandi Jackson was arrested with 7 pounds of "date rape drug" GHB. Oh my God these lawyers are stupid, she really did drug the victim with the date rape drug! I have to go tell my fellow jurors, I think the jailhouse witnesses are telling the truth!
And a juror looks online, and sees there is a person named Chris Dahl, who lives right across the lake from the Dollhouse. And she sees Chris Dahl got arrested in Georgia the day before Mandi got arrested with GHB. And she says "Oh my God, there really was a guy named Chris Dahl. I have to go tell my fellow jurors, I think the jailhouse witnesses are telling the truth!"
And those are far from the only tidbits you will find online, if you allow yourself to become interested in the jailhouse gossip. The gossip is a bottomless pit, the most fascinating puzzle, the most interesting mystery, the juiciest drama, of everything the jurors have to look at. It was disproportionately entertaining. And the few jurors who do develop an interest and an energy and a curiosity to determine what really happened, but do not feel any debt to the rules, will go online and let their fantasies run wild.
I guarantee you they were curious to see what Mandi Jackson looked like three years ago, before she gained 100 pounds in jail. And they may even have found a completely different little blonde girl, also named Mandi May Jackson, who also got in trouble in Georgia. I remember the day I first met Mandi, and searched for her online, and found a completely different Mandi May Jackson who got in trouble in Georgia. I became completely possessed with a false notion, an epiphany, of what kind of person Mandi May Jackson was.
That jury room had three black girls. I have thick hair which black girls like, and my best friend mainly dates black girls, dozens of them. So I know black girls. They are smart. Call me a racist, but the black girls I meet over the years tend to be unusually smart. They are gossipy, they are curious and clever and determined at solving problems. And they don't feel any particular debt to the rules, or to a bitchy white-girl judge. None of these jurors felt restrained by the sobering effect of the rules, or they would not have kept coming up to me and bothering me around the courthouse all week. And one black girl in particular, was animated and opinionated and vocal, and had an outsized personality in the jury box.
The biggest personality in the jury box was the alternate. She took as many notes as anyone, and made more comments during testimony. She nodded her head up and down at direct of the first jailhouse witness, and shook her head at a totally irrelevant picture of James Mulrenin's ribcage, hollowed out by organ donation (which Mandi didn't do, he volunteered for). She got dismissed before deliberations. But the jurors deliberated among themselves before deliberations, they did it right in the jury box. And as the alternate was dismissed and walked past the defendant, she looked at the defendant and nodded her head, and used her eyes to say "yes, you did it."
The jurors became emotionally possessed with an epiphany of guilt, where such a sudden lightbulb, an "a-ha" moment, could not have come from any testimony or evidence in the courtroom. It was a circumstantial case, bolstered by jailhouse witnesses with 22 felonies and crimes of dishonesty between them, who got their sentences reduced for saying what they said, and who came across as biased and creepy. Even someone who managed to be convinced of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, had no reason to be joyous about the conclusion like the alternate was, given the murky circumstances.
Nobody could have given serious contemplation to what they heard in a six-day first-degree murder trial, with no physical evidence of the contents of Mandi Jackson's mind, in under two hours of deliberations. Maybe it was just that, the absence of any indications of the contents of Mandi's mind, the perjury by Neisha Cintron that erased the whole night, the refusal by the judge to show the weed in the kitchen.
Put simply, there was nothing in the courtroom to convince them of Mandi's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, nothing more than a hunch, and it didn't matter. So, a jury has the right to kill people because they feel like it, and no judge, or in this case no prancing legal secretary, is going to stop them. It's a killing world, and jurors come from it and will return to it. They want to kill someone's daughter based on a hunch, that is their business. People kill young girls, and that is that.
Stone probably knew the jury would look online and see Mandi supposedly got caught with a gun in Georgia, which was not even hers. So Stone made sure to emphasize to the jury the revolver was Mandi's gun, which is completely ridiculous.
I guarantee you those jurors looked Mandi up online. I would bet my eyeballs on it against a doughnut. And I guarantee the top to the bottom of the page was covered with the word "GHB."
I don't know if you would be allowed to pre-try during jury selection with the following questions to individual jurors:
1. If you use a guy's credit cards, that doesn't mean you murdered him.
2. If you go from guy A to guy B and back to guy A, that doesn't mean you were with guy A the whole time.
3. If police you accused you of something, that doesn't mean it happened, not in Florida or any other state you may read about.
Everybody in the jury box agrees with that?
There was another important thing. Prosecutor Stone pretried the case during jury selection, by telling jurors to fill in circumstantial evidence with standard events. He basically told jurors if you see storm clouds, and then later the ground is wet, it must have rained.
I would ask the jurors how many rain storms have you seen?
And how many times have you met Mandi Jackson or James Mulrenin?
Stone used a similar metaphor during juror screening and qualification at Scott's trial. He said if there is a cabin and a fresh snow, and there are footprints to the cabin but not away, you know there is someone in the cabin.
I would point out to jurors they are not at the cabin. The person could have walked backward through his footprints like in “The Shining”. There could be footprints leading away behind the cabin, and the cop did not see them. Or the cop could just be lying to you about what was at the cabin. Imagining, to substitute for what you don't know, is not proof.
17. WHAT REALLY HAPPENED - December 14, 2016
NOTE: I have since talked to Mandi in prison, making some of what I wrote here obsolete. For example, I was able to tie together why Mandi gave Neisha her thong back in the customer bathroom, why Mandi and Mulrenin went to the garage, and why Scott was carrying Mandi's duffel - tampons. Why did Mandi look for her friend Mulrenin two nights, to apply and start late? The VIP's. So why not update the book? I spent three years vetting everything here. The new stuff after talking to Mandi, I have only been analyzing for three months. It's a bit hasty to replace stuff I spent three years vetting, with quick explanations that may not stand the test of time.
It is also a lot of work to update the book, and risks error when combining the two, with things that have not solidified yet. It is also nice to have the before talking to Mandi, and after talking to her, to separate the stuff that is based on what Mandi said. So the updated version remains in its own section “Mandi Speaks”.
Here is what I believe happened, based on 4000 hours looking at the evidence, talking to Mandi, talking to other girls from jail, and talking to the attorneys and reading between the lines of what they said.
I didn't realize it at the time, but getting arrested at my house in June 2016 was one of the more formative events of Mandi's life. It did have some of its intended effect, of stopping her driving around crying all day and having sex with old guys. I unintentionally trained her to do that, and I wanted to undo what I had done.
It's hard to hurt Mandi because she is selfless and clueless and wants you to kill her. She will stand there and let you do it. But torturing her father is something she can understand and doesn't like. Because he whines to her, and she feels the pain of his whining and feels guilty. So the way to get to her was through him. So I tortured him with the criminal charges that he was helpless to do anything about. With the hope it would teach Mandi that recklessly hanging out with old guys like there was no danger in it, and screwing two guys at once with a total disregard for 5,000 years of accumulated wisdom of the human race, could cause her father pain.
Plus, every guy she met and fell in love with, either me or her mom sabotaged it. So when she was homeless and met Scott Love, she was sort of traumatized and heartbroken and resigned to just chilling out at his house every day. And that is how she found herself in a life with Scott which, when I saw pictures of it, I thought it had to be insincere. It wasn't her. It was unnatural for her. I didn't believe it.
But after six months she was no longer in post-traumatic shock, it wore off. Scott and her Dad were probably very distressed when it did. And I was pleasantly surprised and curious, that she was out and about again. By December 2016, Mandi was back to her old ways. But she was still very angry about getting arrested and me tormenting her dad with the charges, and she wasn't talking to me. So it wasn't me who got lucky, it was James Mulrenin.
You may remember around August I saw Mandi's car outside Dancers with a blanket over the windshield. It looked like she had been homeless and sleeping in it with her corgi dog Lorelei, her "angel." In September I went to Dancers, and she was inside working but her car wasn't there.
Scott Love's parents house is right up the street from Dancers at 5405 Barton Drive. I believe Mandi knew Scott as a customer who came into Dancers after work, and probably bought a bag of weed off him or smoked weed with him at some point. So Scott came into Dancers while Mandi was homeless, and she went home with him to smoke weed and stayed there.
She probably gave Scott her car while she worked. That is what she will do in a situation like this as a sort of favor to please a guy, in exchange for being able to leave her dog at his house. She was desperate for a place to keep her angel Lorelei while she worked.
Scott didn't want Mandi stripping any more, and neither did her father. Maybe Scott just did it to please her father. So instead she stayed home with Jessica Reiche taking care of Jessica Reiche's kid all day. This would have been heaven for Mandi, because all she really wants to do is take care of children. Every time I pick up my dog, Mandi exclaims "Like a baby!"
Mandi didn't have a phone for two months because her phone broke. This would have been in mid August before she didn't pay the bill on August 20th. She told me from jail, the amount of time she didn't have a phone was two months. Near the end of this period when she didn't have a phone or computer, the new Mandi "Jackon" facebook profile was created. Only close family and Scott Love's friends were added as friends, and it showed her as "in a relationship" with Scott Love. I couldn't find this profile because she misspelled the last name "Jackon", and because she didn't use it to friend or engage the people she knew.
At some point in probably October Mandi got a phone. Except for some reason, it was Scott Love's phone account, and had the same phone number he had already been using all summer. Mandi started using the phone to look at social media and communicate with other people. She met some new guys, including two black guys closer to her own age she would have found cute, and started communicating with them. Scott immediately shut that down, and replaced her picture on instagram with his own face.
Now Scott Love didn't have a phone and Mandi did, and he suspected Mandi was cheating on him. So he started staying up all night, keeping her same hours to keep track of her, or even missing work to keep tabs on her during the day. His employer took him off the schedule as punishment. Now the rent was late, and it was fair for Mandi to try to make some rent money.
After Chris Dahl got arrested for meth on September 1, 2016, he put on a good show and told everyone he was trying to make money as a mechanic. He tried to make some money like working on motorcycles out of his driveway, or fixing up used ones and selling them. Mandi needed money and had always dreamed of being a mechanic. So she drove over to Chris Dahl's house to see what she could do for money, or with a kid hope to be part of his mechanic business.
Mandi ended up delivering bags of weed from Chris Dahl's house to the Veigle strip clubs where Chris Dahl had long been the resident dealer, Rachel's, Stars, Dollhouse, and Rachel's North. Mandi loves motorcycles but nobody will buy her one. She was always excited to deliver bags of weed, in exchange for Chris letting her ride his black CBR 1000 to do it.
Mandi also delivered some cocaine to a manager she was familiar with from Stars. James Mulrenin. Chris Dahl arranged the deal on Mulrenin's burner phone that was charging in his kitchen when he died, and then told Mandi the address. Twice she just met Mulrenin at the curb and dropped off cocaine. But on Saturday December 10, 2016, Mandi parked her car in the first floor garage, and went upstairs and did coke with him. Given Mulrenin is the aggressive guy known for date rape, and everyone knew Mandi as the girl who never said no, I am sure Mulrenin got very lucky and they were a perfect pair.
I always guessed Mandi liked Mulrenin. He was a pimp, he had cocaine. And finally she admitted to liking him on the jail phone. I told her that what happened was her own fault for "hanging out with scumbags." She understood I was talking about Mulrenin, because that is what I called him in letters to jail. She defended herself "It is my choice. It is my choice who to hang out with. I can hang out with who I want to hang out with." She was telling me she liked Mulrenin and thought he was cool, and I needed to fuck off and mind my own business.
Far from robbing him, I don't doubt that Mandi put all her money into the tin in Mulrenin's cabinet. That is the bizarre psychology of a mentally-ill teenage hooker who is always trying to please a guy.
On Saturday during her long stay at his apartment until dawn, Mulrenin told Mandi to come by and get a job at the Dollhouse so he could show off his new toy, as I have seen him try to do with other girls. She slept most of the day Sunday, and then went and applied on Monday. He wasn't there. She went over around 8:30 PM on Tuesday December 13 (as Gorewitz said and the cell tower map shows) to see if he was there that night, and then came back around 10:30 and told Gorewitz outside the door she was working that night. Mulrenin told Mandi to change her dress, and Neisha Cintron asked Mandi about why she changed it. Neisha loaned Mandi a green thong bottom and said Mandi looked better in the first dress. Mulrenin thought so also, so Mandi put the first dress back on.
Mandi was extremely happy to have found a new group of people she seemed to fit in with. Neisha Cintron likes girls and so does Mandi. They smoked weed together. At the end of the night after closing, Mandi asked Neisha if she had any different dresses Mandi could wear to work the next day that Mulrenin might like better. Neisha gave Mandi a dress. Mandi said she would pay Neisha tomorrow. Neisha said she wouldn't be in tomorrow, so Mandi gave Neisha her phone number. Neisha texted Mandi as "Catalina" but Mandi texted back her real name "Mandi."
Why did Mandi come by at 8:30 and not apply and leave? Maybe she was bringing cocaine to sell from Chris Dahl's house. When Mulrenin first worked at Stars, the new non-subhuman bathroom attendant who dressed like him tried to sell me cocaine. But at Dollhouse, I think it would have more likely been a senior girl. That could also explain why Mandi went to Chris Dahl's house after leaving the club, and where the $2500 Mulrenin supposedly got from the big customers went.
If Mandi was Mulrenin's special little ho who would be allowed to start late, then why did he leave her waiting at the bar for a long time with her application? Maybe he is like me and Scott and every other guy. He wanted her to come by work to show her off. But he didn't actually want her stripping. Especially with those big customers there willing to pay for sex. They have more money than Mulrenin and can buy more coke than Mulrenin. If Mandi makes enough money off them, Mulrenin fears Mandi won't need him anymore, like when I was afraid she would do the sexy oil change. If Mandi and the big customers exchange numbers and hook up, it could be a week before Mulrenin sees her again, if ever. So, according to gossip from Mini-Jim, Mandi sat with Mulrenin the whole night.
Mulrenin told Mandi to bring a bag of coke or weed to his house after work, and he would give her cash for her dancer dollars as long as none of the other girls knew, as a pretext to set up a visit. Mandi drove to Chris Dahl's house to get the weed. At this point Scott was not wanting to let her out of his sight. Mandi was at Mulrenin's house on Saturday for longer than the night he died, and also stayed out all night at Chris Dahl's house one night, according to cell tower pings. I don't know if Scott was with her on those previous nights she was with Dahl and Mulrenin. The night Mulrenin died, Mandi's phone may have only had five pings on Mulrenin's tower because her battery went dead.
My first guess is that Scott had been waiting for Mandi all night, and insisted on coming with her to drop off the coke or weed at Mulrenin's and get the cash for her dancer dollars. So Mandi dropped him off up the street at Denny's. She stopped at the curb to meet Mulrenin, parking perpendicular to the garage entrance like she did not plan to drive in. Mulrenin came out to the curb with a drink in a red cup, to appear inviting like "Come in and have a drink." So at this point, I do not believe there was a plan yet to go inside.
Mulrenin talked for a minute through her window, then got in Mandi's passenger seat to do the deal. And either the weed or the cocaine persuaded her to come in for a minute. Maybe Mulrenin said "I have the money upstairs, you want to come in for a minute?" Remember he is an expert. He has been making girls come to the office the next day to get their money for years. I first saw him do it in 2012.
At some point Scott Love came to the apartment building looking for Mandi. Police monkeyed around with the video so much to try to tell the story they wanted to tell, it is impossible to know when Scott actually arrived. I know from hints from both Scott and Mandi's lawyers, and it was obvious just looking at it, police deleted a lot of clips. And I know they changed the timestamps of others.
I saw there was a Denny's right before you got to Mulrenin's apartment, that was open 24 hours. So my first guess is Mandi left Scott at Denny's. Like she left Primo at Popeyes and Burger King and Walmart. Like she left Chris Dahl and his friends at Publix. Like she left her mom and little brother in the street. Like she left poodle boy at her mom's house, and Tywaun at Ale House. All while she had sex with me, when I was her sugar daddy. Now Mulrenin is her new sugar daddy, and Mandi expects old guys to understand this is the treatment they get. There are other guys waiting on her.
I think Scott was angry for being dumped on the side of the road. So he walked right to the Lofts to find Mandi's car and wait in it. It wasn't on the first floor, where it would have been if he was with her on Saturday when she spent a long time at Mulrenin's. So Scott went to every floor of the garage until he found it on the fifth floor. He then went back outside, saw the lights on and Mandi smoking on the fifth floor balcony, third from the end. Then he went back into the building behind a person walking two dogs, went back upstairs, and knocked.
Mandi was at Mulrenin's for two hours the night he died. And whatever happened to Mulrenin didn't happen until right before he went over the balcony. Remember, nothing in Mulrenin's apartment is ransacked. When patrolman Uzzi came in, the bed was made. The boxes in the closet and the things in storage were undisturbed. No drawers or cabinets were open. It looked like Mulrenin was shot, bled for just a few minutes, and went over the balcony. Mandi knew where the drugs were because she was using them, but she ran out without taking them.
So if Scott really arrived at the same time as Mandi, then this leaves 90 minutes of nobody knowing where he was or what he was doing. He could have been sleeping in her car. Maybe he was patient, resigned to the fact he needed rent money to not be embarrassed in front of Scott Jones, his tough-guy friend he owed rent to. And then people started coming into the garage and going to work. And Scott ran out of patience or got worried, or was attracting suspicion in the garage, so he went to Mulrenin's door and knocked. Maybe Scott needed to go to work with his bag.
Scott told police he did maintenance work at The Lofts apartment building in the past. So he was familiar with the amenities. He could have been going around to the lounge or the computer room looking to steal some TV screens, or just chilling out napping in the lounge for an hour. The lounge is on the same side of the building as Mulrenin's apartment, I believe one floor up. Maybe there is even a sauna. I think Scott accepted at this point that he needed rent, and would have to wait for Mandi. Looking at very old social media posts and talking to people, I believe at least two of Scott's previous girlfriends were hookers. So Scott would have had some patience.
Or Scott may have arrived on his own an hour later. He was wearing his light-colored work clothes, and a straw hat that someone who works outside in paving would wear. When he used the credit cards at Walmart, he ditched that crazy-looking hat and put on a baseball cap to look incognito. Scott had the look of a traveler, on the video when he arrived at Lofts. I assume Mandi left Scott waiting up the street because I know Mandi. But I don't know Scott. And there are some small hints he may have arrived on his own.
At his trial, Scott said he arrived by himself on a motorcycle. I know he had a motorcycle he built, which impressed Mandi. Mandi's lawyer was curious enough to ask their roommate if he ever loaned Scott one of his many motorcycles. The roommate said no, because they are too expensive to loan. But when Mandi was first in jail, she was rambling about driving a Hayabusa on Semoran, sometime after we last were last together. Based on the timeframe and the scarcity of Hayabusas, I just assumed this had to be her roommate's Hayabusa in his garage where she lived during that time. If so, it wasn't too expensive to loan to a 100-pound girl.
You would think their roommate would remember Scott taking a motorcycle that particular night. But they were asleep. And witnesses tend to lie or forget, when they are somehow involved in an alleged murder. "I didn't loan him a motorcycle to commit murder." There were also a number of unregistered motorcycles in the shed and garage at Chris Dahl's house. Those would not be too expensive to loan. And if Chris Dahl is like me and wanted to get rid of Scott, he might think it was funny to send Scott to a confrontation with Mulrenin and get arrested.
The strongest hint Scott came on his own, came from Mandi. When I told her Kaylee claimed she confessed, she asked me what Kaylee claimed she said. I listed "She said Scott drove you to the Dollhouse that night." Mandi said "NO!" Mandi's emphatic and disgusted tone hinted Scott did the opposite of what Kaylee said, and the opposite of what Mandi wanted, and Mandi was not happy about it. The opposite of Scott driving her, is Mandi left Scott home and he came and found her anyway. NOTE: SEE NEWEST DALINDY THEORY IN “THE FOUR MOTIVES”
The strongest hint Scott did not come on his own is the straw paving hat. I did not see a chin strap or string. If you rode a motorcycle with that hat on, I think it would blow off. I have seen people ride motorcycles with a hat like that, but I don't know how. Maybe if it were really tight. Maybe he took it off and put it back on.
If Scott came on his own, that might indicate he was jealous and looking for trouble. Whether Scott was acting as a jealous boyfriend, whether he was genuinely worried about Mandi and wanted to protect her from bad people like me, whether he was acting as a pimp and Mandi was in there too long, or whether he just knocked because he needed to get to work and he was angry she ditched him, he felt justified to assert himself.
Lately I have visions of Chris Dahl himself driving Scott there. When I said to Mandi in jail that Dahl and Mulrenin set Scott up to get arrested, she seemed to accept that idea. More recently, Mandi was very unhappy that I wrote this book. I said if your best friend in the world stood up for you, and said that what his lawyer's other client was saying was nonsense, I wouldn't have to write any book. She became very angry, indicating she feels dumped by Chris Dahl. When Mandi ran to the garage, and then when she drove out of the building, Scott was not with her. Scott went in some other direction, he had some other way home.
It was 5:55 AM and Scott said "I have to be at work paving in Winter Park in an hour. Can you text Mandi where the hell she is?" Dahl says "I can do you one better. I know where she is, and I can take you there." So Dahl texts Mulrenin on his burner phone "This asshole is coming to knock on your door." I don't have any evidence for this. But it is the kind of thing guys do that girls call "immature." Something similar happened to me in high school when I sneaked off to have sex with a girl and I didn't think anyone knew where I was. The biggest problem with it is I don't think Dahl would drive 30 minutes just to play a prank, or for anything else. He would have to really want Love out of his house, or be secretly jealous of what Mandi was doing and want to stir the pot.
One day when I was in high school, there was talk in the halls of a big "rumble" after school. There were people coming from other high schools to participate. By lunch time, I heard it was actually just a bunch of guys coming to beat on me. A guy in my circle of friends handed me a gun, and told me to put it in my pants. Huh? The principal then came and told me I had detention, and kept me in a room with all those guys shouting outside the window, until they left. The whole time I was only dimly aware of what was going on or why. Weeks later I pieced together it was supposedly for having sex with or talking to the girls they liked. It makes no sense that a bunch of people could plan a showdown, without the person on the other side knowing about it. Did somebody else tell them I would fight them, and then give me the gun hoping I would shoot them? Did someone hand Scott the gun the same way and say Mandi is at this guy's house, go knock on his door, and Scott had no idea why?
Months later, that same guy invited me to walk down to the point with him. When we got there, a bunch of those guys were there drinking. When we got back he said "What a bunch of pussies those guys are, they didn't do nothing." I'm only piecing this together today, the guy I knew perhaps wanted those other guys to kill me. And I had no idea. And I still have no idea why. He also was urgent to tell me when my ex-girlfriend had sex with my friend.
Another time when I was living in a house with a bunch of guys, some guy had sex with a girl in my bed when I was out of town. I was angry about it when I got back, so I went looking for him to ask him for money or just to complain. He was a professional boxer who once knocked out the entire SAE fraternity one-by-one until someone hit him from behind with a brick. And the guys thought I was tough for some reason, always telling me to participate in the tough-man competition. They told me the guy was staying at a motel. When I got there he was talking on the pay phone outside the motel. He said they told him on the phone I was coming with a gun to kill him, and he better kill me first. So there is no question guys think it is funny to set up a fight between other guys.
Remember, Scott has heard 100 times that Mandi has a crazy stalker out there who attacked her with a machete, me. And Mandi's Dad has probably given Scott license to kill me, asked him to do it, to keep Mandi safe from me. Mandi's dad thinks I am both a pimp and a drug dealer. When Mandi stayed out all night, Scott demanded to come out with her next time. Mandi probably had sex with Chris Dahl while Chris' girlfriend, Dalindy Luckett, was bartending at Stars. Scott went over there the next night and asked Dahl "Do you know where Mandi has been?" Dahl says Mandi has not been with any guys that he knows about. But Dahl says he has heard of Mandi's sugar daddy, that crazy stalker who tried to kill her. Go kill that guy, don't bother me.
I don't think Mandi finds me interesting enough, to have told Scott I had two frisky black-and-white dogs. But maybe she told him how awful I am, and how my dogs tried to attack her dog. Who knows, maybe her mother mentioned it. Then whom does Scott follow through that freight door? A middle-aged guy who looks faintly like me, walking two black-and-white dogs like mine, a similar size to mine. And then Scott sees a dog walker in the garage, again in the similar size to mine and mobile like mine.
I dropped the charges, and the restraining order was gone. So now Mandi can come back to me any time she needs money. Scott is short on money from not working, and he knows Mandi will go looking for the better deal. Scott knows I have been stalking her and sending her provocative messages. Nobody will tell him where Mandi has been on previous nights. So Scott may have gone into the Lofts apartments thinking it could be me in there, the old guy that Mandi is meeting with. Scott Love has never seen me, he only knows I am old and have more money than him. So he might not know Mulrenin from me.
Going on his past arrests, Scott Love is an idiot. He has probably been arrested twice, for every one crime he actually committed. It is not hard to imagine he would bring a gun with him in the situation I just described. But I don't know for sure that he did. It is also possible Mulrenin pulled it on Scott. There were a lot of news stories at that time about people who used "stand your ground" to get a free pass to shoot someone in Florida. It is even possible, given Mandi and Mulrenin are both into the dominant-submissive thing, that the revolver was being used in a fetish role play. Mandi is happy to let you tie her up, or put a gun to her head and say "suck it, bitch." I don't want to share all of her secrets, so just believe it when I tell you.
Carico said Mulrenin was angry when Mandi left him alone at the club. Mulrenin had to suspect Scott Love was there. None of the strippers sleep alone. They all go home to guys, or guys come and pick them up. Mulrenin took their keys away. and made it his business to stand in the parking lot and see exactly who left with whom. Plus Dahl knows Mandi is with Scott Love, and many people at the strip clubs saw Mandi with Love. When Mulrenin got into Mandi's car outside the Lofts, the passenger seat was way back, and there was an ice drink in the passenger-side dashboard cupholder. I got into Mandi's car in Melbourne once, right after she dropped Primo off up the street before meeting me. And it was obvious to me a guy had just been sitting where I sat.
Whether Love rode with Mandi and was supposed to wait at Denny's, whether he borrowed a motorcycle from Chris Dahl's house, whether he used his own motorcycle which I know he had that summer, or whether he arrived at the Lofts some other way on his own, everyone knew Scott Love was somewhere waiting for Mandi. For both Mulrenin and Dahl, who had their own uses for Mandi, Scott Love was a problem. He was cramping their style. So talking over that burner phone, Dahl and Mulrenin may have hatched a plan to keep Mandi in there to make Scott wait. Maybe they even hoped to provoke Scott like I did, so that he would be forced to come onto the property and knock. Then Mulrenin could call the police and have Scott arrested. There is a pretty good chance Dahl and Mulrenin had been looking for a way to set Scott up to get rid of him, when Mulrenin kept Mandi in there for two hours that night.
Between Mulrenin and Love, Mulrenin may have been the more jealous one. Girls are his life. Girls are why he wears a suit. To think that a girl would snort all his cocaine, then cut him short to go home to a crazy homeless-looking guy with a beard with nothing, would rub him wrong. So Mulrenin may have kept Mandi in there out of passive-aggressive anger, that Scott was higher up the totem pole. And then Scott is just a bullhead.
I believe Scott Love knocked. Because Mulrenin's cocaine was stashed hastily in a cabinet. The cocaine that was still in baggies was in rocks, but this cocaine had been chopped and was in use. There was a plastic card, and the cocaine had been scraped hastily into a $20 bill, that looked like it had been rolled up to snort it. And then it had all been stashed hastily on the bottom shelf of the first kitchen cabinet. Nobody puts cocaine away like that, unless they are in a hurry. This is Mulrenin's own house, he doesn't need to hide the cocaine unless there is a visitor. The only way I can think of, for that cocaine in use to get stashed hastily in a cabinet like that, is if some stranger starts knocking on the door and won't go away. So finally you stash the cocaine and answer the door.
Based on the story Kaylee told which may have had a grain of truth (if you spend 4,000 hours to figure out which grain), and based on Mandi's unfinished drink on Mulrenin's balcony which still had condensation by the time police took pictures, I think Mandi was on the balcony when Scott knocked. Though she could have been passed out on the sofa from drinking and her anxiety medication. Mandi is a lightweight and can't drink much and not very quickly. But she does like to carry a drink around a long time and take sips from it. And if there was G in the drink as Kaylee claimed but which I doubt, Mandi would have been motivated to try to finish it.
So Scott knocked and said "Where is Mandi?" And Mulrenin said "You are trespassing, I am calling the police." Mulrenin was a really angry aggressive guy. Some crazy-looking guy in a beard coming into his apartment building, while he is freshly coked up and more than twice the legal driving limit on alcohol, would have sent Mulrenin absolutely batshit.
Mulrenin may have even punched Scott while calling the police on him. Anyone who says they knew Mulrenin and that is not how he was, is a liar. Look at how Mulrenin punches the elevator button eight times, and kicks the can, in the Lofts video. Moving his arms around came very naturally to him when he was angry. Mulrenin became very animated at the slightest imagined provocation.
There were a lot of scuff marks on the door. It looks like maybe Scott pulled a gun and Mulrenin tried to push the door shut and call police. But Mulrenin was too drunk and Scott was able to force his way in. If you enhance the photo, there is even a ding on the hard metal door surface, with a red tint, like Scott could have shot him in the leg right there. And the bullet bounced off the door, and was lost in the scuffle. But if that were the case, then police would have to shoot another bullet through the couch, to make one with marks from the zig-zag spring. It's unlikely police did that, but it is not impossible. Given the lengths they went to, to support their "shot while fleeing" narrative.
So Scott came through the door around 6:30 and grabbed Mulrenin's phone and broke it before he could dial 911. It would be nice to know what time the last ping hit the tower. But police wanted to hide that and say Scott went in at 5AM. If Mandi was on the balcony, or passed out on the sofa, this is around when she would have become aware Scott was in the apartment. Back when I knew her, Mandi would have been on the balcony smoking. But at the time she started hanging out with Mulrenin, she was on new meds for anxiety, and could pretty much fall asleep anywhere anytime. If Mandi fell asleep, that might be why Scott eventually felt no choice but to knock.
Kaylee said Mulrenin blamed Mandi for Scott coming in, and shouted at her. In Julie Madara's deposition, she said Mulrenin attacked Mandi before Scott came in. Though I suspect that was just the story that Scott instructed Mandi to tell, that Mulrenin attacked Mandi and whatever happened next was in self defense. But I believe Mulrenin could have attacked Mandi, because he had a strange habit of taking things out on the girl. Mulrenin had an incredibly short temper with female employees at the strip club. And he never said a cross word to me, even if I was the cause of what happened.
If I was in the strip club, and I touched a girl in a way that Mulrenin thought was inappropriate, he would go into a rage. He was very animated. He would wave his arms, and fire the girl, and throw her out of the building, Then he would ask me politely if he could help me find another girl. That is kind of a condensed summary of some different events. But the idea is that when a guy and a girl did something, or a guy did something, Mulrenin would get enraged and take it out on the girl. Someone told me the customer is always right, and that is why at the strip club, Mulrenin blamed everything on the girls. He was boss of the girls, not the guys. But to me it seemed like such a strong habit, Mulrenin might do the same thing even outside the strip club.
Mulrenin has a domestic battery conviction. Mandi was tilting her head sideways because her neck hurt, when she was photographed in handcuffs in front of her house, and during her police interview. You can get a hurt neck from being hit in the side of the head. I know Mandi left feeling betrayed by Mulrenin for something he did.
So at this point Mulrenin was facing Mandi waving his arms, and blaming her for bringing Scott. And Scott shot him from behind in the leg. Mulrenin then sat down and elevated his leg in the recliner. Either Mandi or probably Mulrenin put on latex gloves, because Mulrenin has all that hand sanitizer and is afraid of infection. And they bound the wound with duct tape to keep him from bleeding all over the car, rather than call police to a room full of drugs. Mulrenin makes money off the drug business with Dahl. Mandi has seen guys do a lot of crazy stuff and they usually calm down. So she was hoping to just tape up Mulrenin's leg and settle things down, so she could keep her new cocaine friend with benefits, and still go back to work at Dollhouse the next day and meet some of those big customers like she saw that night. But the duct tape wouldn't work, because your thigh becomes narrower, and it goes slack when you stand up.
There were also cable ties, which could have come from Love's work in his duffel bag. But they were right next to an entertainment center. I suspect Mulrenin brought them home from the heavy-duty lighting and cabling, or the drink hoses under the bar, at Dollhouse. Love told police his three best friends died in the military. And his "Don't Tread On Me" shirt had a logo of a guy rapelling out of a blackhawk helicopter. So Love had to be familiar with the scene in "Blackhawk Down" where a guy gets shot in the thigh and bleeds to death. For that reason, when the duct tape went slack, Scott may have recommended they put a tight cable tie around Mulrenin's leg like a tourniquet, to compress the wound and stop the bleeding.
I assume because of where the closed cable tie is, and its circumference, the cable tie was used to compress the wound. It looks like Mulrenin stood up from the recliner, stepped with his right foot, then stepped with his left foot, and it slid off. I tried this and it took two steps each, and fell off in the exact same spot as Mulrenin. If Love told Mulrenin to make a tourniquet because of Love's obsession with "Blackhawk Down" and military stuff, Mulrenin would probably not have been into it. And that may be why Mulrenin lost his patience sitting there.
Here is an experiment I did, and you can try yourself. Sit down and relax your leg, and bend it at the knee. Tie a tight string around your lower thigh just above the knee, where Mulrenin's exit wound was. Then stand up and straighten your leg out and put weight on it. When I do this, it opens up about two inches of slack in the string compared to when I was sitting. The circumference of my lower thigh changes when I stand up and walk. So it makes sense a cable tie used to compress Mulrenin's exit wound would fall off as he walks and his lower thigh gets narrower than when it was being wrapped.
You can also compare the circumference of the string you tied around your leg to the closed cable tie on Mulrenin's floor, and the repeating loop of duct tape by his door. You will see it is the same. Now tie duct tape around your wrists and ankles, and you will see the loop is much smaller. The duct tape looks like it also had some toilet paper stuck to it to absorb blood, and there is a loose roll of toilet paper on Mulrenin's bathroom counter a few feet away.
I told Mandi on the jail phone how a cottonmouth snake had been trying to get the rats that try to get my dog food. I told her if my dogs got bitten, I would take them to the vet. Mandi said she didn't think they would make it to the vet because they don't have enough blood. She said my dogs are so small they are not like you and me. People have more blood relative to the amount of venom. The total volume of blood my dogs have is very small.
I was surprised to hear that Mandi had some concept of how much blood is in a person, and that there might not be enough of it, and that it is the primary factor of whether you live or die. People where I live talk about dogs and farm animals getting bitten by snakes every week. None of them ever mention their thoughts on the volume of blood different animals have, and whether it is enough to survive a snake bite. They talk about the size of the snake, how much venom different age snakes release, and the type of animal, as being factors. But they never mention the volume of blood in the animal that gets bitten, as being a factor, much less the primary factor. So Mandi may have been the one who thought Mulrenin did not have enough blood to survive, and recommended a tourniquet .
Then Mulrenin stood up for some reason. Maybe he had labyrinthitis from cocaine and an eye infection, and he had the spins, and sitting down was distressful. I got an ear infection swimming in Biscayne Bay in November 2010. It felt like I was spinning front to back. When I tried to sit down it was very distressful, because it felt like I was falling over backwards. So I had an impulse to stand up and go forward, to counteract the spinning. Maybe something like that caused Mulrenin to stand up. Maybe he just had enough of drunk stoned girls, and bisexual guys with beards who think they are in the military, and tourniquets. I forgot to mention that Scott's first baby mama said Scott was bisexual in prison and still liked to shower with men. Maybe Scott got a quick crush on Mulrenin, some kind of "band of brothers" thing. That would make me run.
Maybe Mulrenin simply stood up because it was time to go, or to test if he could walk with the tape. Maybe Scott Love told him to stand up, so he could find the bullet under the sofa and not leave it as evidence. A neighbor below heard furniture being moved at this time. I believe Scott went to the kitchen to find something to get the bullet out of the sofa. First he grabbed the large tongs, which are seen lying on the kitchen floor. But that was idiotic, and the next thing he found was the serrated cheese knork.
Scott could have cut into the sofa after Mandi left. But the neighbor heard furniture being moved (which he only later said was "on the balcony" after finding out what happened), and nobody was paying attention to Mulrenin. So I believe they tried duct tape twice, but it went slack when Mulrenin stood up. So they stuck the cable tie on there, and then Mulrenin stood up and Scott went to get the bullet out of the sofa.
I believe Scott Love turned the recliner upside down, and started to cut into it with the serrated cheese knork police found on the sofa. That is the cut in the bottom of the recliner which Smolarek said was the bullet exit hole in the loveseat. That is when Mulrenin went out onto the balcony alone, and completely unexpectedly and out of the blue to Scott and Mandi, went over. Then Mandi ran out to her car, and Scott pulled up the carpet looking for the bullet, and put the recliner back in place. NOTE: NEW TIMING ANALYSIS IN APPENDIX A “ON THE BALCONY”
I know the tape and cable tie was used to bind Mulrenin's wound for several reasons. First, the repeating loop of the tape is the exact average circumference of a caucasian man's thigh Mulrenin's height, weight, and health condition. I got the data from a scientific study study that tried to predict cardiovascular disease in Swedish men based on their thigh circumference. And the tape had blood spots, in the exact spots where blood would be if it went around his thigh. The one closed cable tie was also similar to the circumference of Mulrenin's thigh. And both the cable tie and the tape loop were way bigger than they would be, if they had been wrapped around wrists or ankles. I taped and tied up a large man myself, to test and confirm this. You can do the same.
If two people really duct taped and cable tied a man who had just been shot under threat of a gun, there is no way he is "breaking free" and making it the whole way to the balcony alone, as theorized by the prosecution. The position where the cable tie was found on the floor, shows Mulrenin stood up from the recliner in his socks, took a step or two with his right leg, took a step or two with his left leg, and that is where the cable tie slipped off onto the floor. Then he walked to the glass door, and dropped the duct tape loop from his thigh there. The glove thumb tips were also torn off in this area, I believe by a drunk and sloppy Mulrenin, trying first to pull the gloves straight off his large hands.
You have to appreciate Mandi is a tomboy who uses duct tape when she cuts herself in the garage. I even had sort of a debate with her one time, in early December 2015. I tore up my knees fucking her on the shag rug in her little brother's room. She had a nitrous bottle lying by her head. She sucked on the nitrous, then said "I love this" then "Come on David, cum in me" to get me to fuck her harder. But my knees were worn down to the white stuff with blood oozing out. So I wrapped them both in duct tape to finish the job. Afterwards she said "You don't know how much that is going to hurt to take that off. You want me to help you?" I said "I have also taped myself with duct tape before and here's what you're missing: I don't care. I can even just leave it on there." Then she hurried home to Chris Dahl's house.
The duct tape was already in Mulrenin's apartment. Because there was a mug in his kitchen cabinet with empty cocaine bags, probably from Mandi's visit the previous Saturday. And at the bottom of that mug of old bags, was some black duct tape, which they probably used to wrap or store drugs in some way. There is a piece of black duct tape under so many used cocaine bags, the duct tape had to have been in the apartment days earlier. But the case law or rules of evidence won't allow you to show signs of drug use to the jury. Which is all that was going on there that night.
I also confirmed with Mandi, that the duct tape was used to bind Mulrenin's wound. We can't talk openly on the phone, because that is the prosecutor's home court. They can cut up and delete and use the calls to tell any story they want. They can change what evidence they send to the lab, or where they claim to have found it, based on what Mandi says. Mandi said a dozen times on the phone she is innocent, but I am not sure I can even get those calls. So you can't give the prosecution raw material by talking openly on the phone. But I did send Mandi a lot of letters, where I openly called her an idiot for taping up scumbag Mulrenin's leg with duct tape. But of course she was sweet on the guy. Disgusting.
Over her years in jail, I sent several letters where I mentioned binding Mulrenin's wound with duct tape, and how Scott is an idiot and she is an idiot, and a lot of other stuff. I could tell whether I got things right or wrong, or told Mandi new things she did not know herself, by her reaction. I might have to press her "Did you get my letter? Did you read it?" And she would say "It's all crazy." Or she might tell me "I got your letter! I read it!" Or she might not remember a letter at all. Or she might give me a number of other reactions to what I wrote, when I sent her a letter on a particular topic.
One time I was on the phone with her, after I sent her a letter which mentioned binding the wound with duct tape. I said "You are not guilty of what you are accused of. And they should be able to show that in court. Unless there is something I don't know about." I really was worried there was something I had missed, or couldn't know, or hadn't mentioned in the letters. Mandi answered "There is nothing you don't know about. It's all there in the evidence." I understood her to be saying the evidence showed the tape was used to bind Mulrenin's leg, and I had figured that out correctly. She was confirming I was right about the tape. Nothing happened I didn't already know about, just from looking at the evidence. Mandi was not playing games with me, she does not play games like that. If that was her way, we wouldn't be here.
After I looked at the evidence, and told Mandi what I believed happened with the duct tape, she called me a stalker. I told her I didn't expect to ever see her again after the first day she got out of jail. She said there is no point telling me to fuck off or trying to avoid me when she gets out of jail. Because she could never escape me knowing exactly where she was and what she was doing, every single day for the rest of her life. I stalked her every day before she went in, and then I spent three years and 4,000 hours looking at the evidence and figuring out what happened. Her lawyers never shared any evidence with me. They refused to talk to me, after I paid them. Mandi called me a superpower stalker because I knew she was at Mulrenin's house on Saturday, and because I knew the duct tape was used to bind the wound.
The prosecution wants you to believe the "wearer DNA" on the gloves with Mulrenin's blood shows Scott wore gloves and booties in Mulrenin's apartment. I showed you how that was a complete scam. They want you to believe Scott Love planned a perfect crime wearing gloves and booties, but then walked all around in front of cameras, threw a cigarette on the ground which they got his DNA from, and brought the gun home.
If Scott thought the duct tape and cable ties were incriminating, if Scott were the one who brought the cable ties, he would have grabbed them on his way out. You think Scott Love is going to make some big plan to sneak in with cable ties and gloves and booties, and then leave his cable ties at the scene? Scott is a blue-collar worker, he doesn't leave his equipment at the job site. Every day he picks it up. Scott didn't want to be found with Mulrenin's bloody cable ties on him, that would be evidence. He might even get accused of stealing Mulrenin's cable ties. Scott never dreamed someone would invent a story that Mulrenin was restrained with duct tape and cable ties. Nobody would plan to tie up a man in an apartment building, where all he has to do is scream and everyone can hear everything.
It does look like Scott wiped some of the blood off the couch after Mandi left. And it is clear he pulled up that rug from under the couch because he was looking for something. As clear as anything in this case. If Scott pulled up the rug because it was bloody and he wanted to take it with him, then he would have taken the duct tape and cable ties. The best analysis is Scott wanted to remove only the evidence he was there, meaning the bullet and the exit spray. He tried to wipe away the blood until he saw there was too much. And he didn't care about leaving anything that incriminated Mandi. And then he actually left when the sirens came. But police deleted that video of Scott leaving alone, and lied about the video timestamps and time of the 911 call, because they wanted you to believe Scott and Mandi left together when sirens came.
The prosecution wants you to believe Scott Love or Mandi brought bloody gloves out of the apartment, and left them in the car. Why would they bring the gloves out, and not the incriminating cable ties? The finger of the third glove was left on the floor right next to the cable ties. The reason Scott ran out and left the cable ties, is because they had the totally innocent explanation I have given you: They were used to try to bind Mulrenin's leg and stop the bleeding.
Why was Scott carrying a bag? Scott had a paycheck that said he worked a day that week. Everything about how he was dressed matches what I have seen guys on paving crews in Florida wear, and particularly very light-skinned guys. Scott was wearing a long-sleeve cotton shirt, a wide-brimmed hat, jeans, and work boots. So I think that was his work bag. In theory Mandi could have picked him up at work and dropped him off at Chris Dahl's house while she stripped, and he would have had stuff that is important to him in that bag. Carrying a bag might have just been a habit for him even when not at work, from not having a drivers license and being driven to work each day and taking the bus. He doesn't have a car to leave stuff in.
Why would Scott have taken his bag with him if he rode with Mandi and she said to wait up the street while I cash out my dancer dollars? Mandi may have said get your stuff out so Mulrenin doesn't see guy stuff in the car when Mulrenin sits in the seat for a minute to do the cocaine deal. You don't hand cocaine in the open. They may have gotten into an argument over making Scott wait, and Mandi kicked Scott out and said take the bus home. Maybe Scott doesn't want to leave his important stuff in the car while he stands on the sidewalk. Maybe Scott doesn't want to leave his illegal stuff in the car while Mandi is selling Mulrenin cocaine. Like maybe Scott has his own drug paraphernalia in that bag. Scott once drove up to sell someone a bag of weed, and got arrested in a drug sting in Orange County. Maybe Mandi dropped Scott off at that hotel up the street, and Scott's plan was to sneak in and use the gym.
Let's assume Scott brought that gun. Maybe it was because I had been harassing and stalking Mandi - I walked up behind her at Dancers that time - and her dad told Scott I attacked her with a machete, and to kill me if he saw me. Maybe Scott was jealous, and brought the gun for whomever Mandi was seeing behind his back. Maybe he just likes to carry a gun. I have looked very hard at the Lofts video and I do not think Scott had a gun anywhere in his clothes. So I think his gun was in that bag. Maybe he kept it in the bag because he didn't want Mandi to know he had it. Maybe Mandi didn't want a gun in her car after she got arrested for some guy's gun in Georgia. Especially not during a drug deal. That is a felony with a firearm. And so when Scott got out, he took the bag with his gun with him, either because Mandi did not want it in there, he didn't want Mandi to know about it, or he just wanted his valuable stuff.
If the little ball of gloves in the neat square package with the zip ties was for Scott's work, wouldn't it have been in Scott's bag? Maybe. But I don't think he would have packaged them up again if he took them out and used them at Mulrenin's apartment, and then threw them in the trash. Maybe they were in a pocket in his work jeans in Mandi's car. Maybe he balled them up sitting in Mandi's car when she picked him up at work, or he took them out to work on his motorcycle he built, or who knows why they would have been in Mandi's car and not in his work bag.
Where did the three gloves come from that Mandi or Mulrenin wore to tape up and compress Mulrenin's wound? A lot of people have surgical gloves in their house. I know I have some, I don't remember where I got them or why. I have one sitting in the console of my car right now. Mulrenin had all those needles and all that hand sanitizer, he had recently been to the doctor, maybe he had some use for surgical gloves.
When I lived by Club Madonna and strippers came to my house with their stripper bags, they often used blue gloves. One time a stripper put some gloves on to clean my kitchen and protect her nails or something, washing dishes and using bleach. Another time a stripper put some gloves on to apply spray tan so her palms didn't turn orange. Another time a stripper gave me a hand job wearing blue gloves like that, I don't remember why. It may be because she wouldn't let me have sex with her because I didn't have a rubber. A stripper washed her face with that "exfoliating scrub" with the sand in it, wearing gloves like that, at my house. I don't know why, maybe to stop her fake nails from scratching her face.
So why didn't her lawyers simply say this at trial, that Mandi was trying to calm the two guys down, and bind Mulrenin's wound while Scott pointed a gun at them, so she could go back to work the next day like nothing happened and smoke weed with Neisha and meet big customers? Mandi's lawyer is a former DUI prosecutor and didn't want to open up that can of worms with all kinds of technicalities. He knows the prosecutor will say when she was taping the wound, now she was colluding with Scott. When she is taping the wound, did Mulrenin really want her to stay? Or didn't he want her to leave so he could just go to the hospital? So now she is trespassing.
As a former DUI prosecutor, Mandi's lawyer was perhaps a little too technical. And he was afraid the whole trial would come down to a technical argument, of whether Mandi was trespassing, and whether she was helping Scott or Mulrenin more, by taping Mulrenin's leg. If the jury sees it one way versus another, and they decide she was trespassing, then suddenly she is guilty of first degree murder according to the bizarre technicality of the felony murder rule. Guilty of first degree murder for taping a guy's leg after she sucked his dick. Yes that was Mulrenin's DNA on her straw.
Remember, Mandi was 21 and still had the mind of a child when this happened. And on top of that, she was drunk and stoned when Scott shot Mulrenin. Drunk and stoned under the supervision of her boss, and for his amusement. Mulrenin did not want someone who would know what to do in this situation. Mulrenin wanted a stupid girl. Mulrenin wanted a girl he could bend to his will, who would get drunk and stoned and do things no girl with any sense would do, like suck his dick while her broke boyfriend was waiting. That is who Mulrenin was in the strip-club business to meet and take advantage of.
Mulrenin himself may have wanted to call 911 on a trespasser in the hall, but not on anyone inside his apartment where he has cocaine and his delivery girl. For the same reason Barbara Mellinger hid that Mandi was at Dollhouse the previous night. And for the same reason Big Mike or someone else deleted most of the Dollhouse video that would have shown Mandi at Dollhouse the night Mulrenin died and the previous night. Lieutenant Murphy proposed the idea during Scott's video interview, that Mulrenin would not want to call the police. Mulrenin had a VOP, a violation of probation. He got arrested for some small crime, years after his racketeering conviction.
If you think Mulrenin wanted to call the police, then why did they hide the video and witnesses of Mandi at Dollhouse that night and previous nights? The headline would have been "Strip-Club Manager in Rohypnol Drug Bust with Young Female Employee. James Mulrenin, who is no stranger to accusations of rape and racketeering..."
Just like Mandi wants to go back to work the next day, Mulrenin wants to keep on snorting cocaine, and luring young girls home with it, and making money off it being sold at the club. Go into Dollhouse yourself and you will see there is not much stripping money in there. Adding cocaine to the daily grind could be the difference between poverty and plenty for Mulrenin, to enable him to have that new car and sofa. If the police come in there, cocaine is out of his life, and he is just the boring manager of the sleaziest white strip club in Orlando. And that may be why nobody heard him calling for help.
There was a Sprint prepaid recharge card on Mulrenin's kitchen counter, like Mulrenin just used it that night. His white iPhone was AT&T, and Mandi's phone was T-Mobile. That suggests Mulrenin had just recharged the burner phone that was also on his kitchen counter, plugged in, and charging. So whatever Mulrenin was doing with that burner phone was important to him that night. No point using a burner phone, then calling the police on yourself.
The prosecution would say Mandi was guilty of first degree murder for not leaving immediately when Mulrenin got shot, to immediately call police on her boyfriend whom her dad liked, to immediately lose her job at Dollhouse, to immediately become homeless with her dog, to immediately tell her dad she was having sex with another old guy like me, and to immediately get Chris Dahl in trouble for dealing drugs with Mulrenin, and make Chris' kid cry all day. If Mulrenin was trying to dial 911, and Mandi didn't immediately dial 911, then she is a trespasser.
I think as likely as not, Mandi's phone battery was dead until she got in her car and plugged it in. That's why she only had five pings on Mulrenin's cell tower the night he died, compared to seven the previous Saturday. But if her battery was dead, and her lawyer says it was dead, or even if she begged for her life in fluent Japanese, it doesn't matter. The prosecution is going to object "not in evidence" and the judge won't allow it. So "common sense" says Mandi is guilty and she has to prove she isn't, and she can't.
Never mind that if Mandi was on the balcony, or passed out on the sofa, she may not have known Mulrenin tried to dial 911 and Scott broke his phone. Her lawyer didn't want to go there, into the taping details, and why she didn't dial 911. And whether she technically became a a trespasser - a drunk, stoned, confused, brain-damaged slut-with-two-boyfriends-plus-hopefully-Catalina trespasser - and technically therefore a first-degree murderer, when she didn't dial 911. And her lawyer believed he didn't even need to discuss that, to raise reasonable doubt as to whether she really planned to rob the guy. Which he didn't, and she didn't.
And the prosecution wouldn't let her lawyer tell the whole leg-taping story anyway, or all the details of why Mandi did what she did. Because they would say all these details are not in evidence, her lawyer is testifying. In fact, the judge would not let 99% of the actual murder scene into evidence. The judge wouldn't even let the defense show the weed which was the whole reason Mandi was there. It was an all-day fight to even let the jury see a picture with Mulrenin's viagra in it, the whole reason Mulrenin brought Mandi there. And of course her lawyer can't tell the jury all the background I told you, the judge would stop him at the first sentence.
Her lawyer wasn't there that night, only Mandi can testify in front of the jury what really happened and why. But Mandi has been drugged up on four different mind drugs, ever since they put her in isolation to torture her into taking a 25-year deal to testify against Scott. She spent the whole trial smiling at sheriffs like an idiot, and kissing the air. Her lawyer was afraid to put her on the stand. So the jury thought her lawyer was hiding something, and said screw reasonable doubt. We want to punish him for not telling us the whole story of what happened in that apartment. Which the judge would never have allowed her lawyer to do, but nobody explained that to the jury.
So Mandi tapes Mulrenin's leg or helps Mulrenin do it. And from her point of view, everything is settled down, it's all under control. She just needs to give some blowjobs over the next few days, and both guys will be happy again. But then Scott starts cutting into the bottom of the recliner to find the bullet. And they aren't paying attention to Mulrenin, and he walks out on the balcony and goes over.
I am still not 100% sure whether Mandi was wearing the jacket already, when she went out to her car with Mulrenin earlier in the night. I forgot to check for that on the video during her trial. But that is key to determining who left with the credit cards.
Mandi was smoking weed in Mulrenin's apartment. She smoked cigarettes on the balcony like when she visited me in motels. But she has to smoke weed out of sight, in the kitchen. Mulrenin has weed in his freezer and weed in his cabinet. And there is weed and a pipe, and a box the pipe is stored in, on the kitchen counter. The weed is just there to lure girls like Mandi who love to smoke weed. Mulrenin doesn't smoke weed, he is never mellow or relaxed and doesn't want to be. He is an angry wooden hard-ass. Cocaine and alcohol and caffeine are his drugs. The toxicology report confirmed this. Mandi smoked so much weed the fire alarm went off, and was found disabled on the dining room table. And they left the sliding door open to clear out the smoke.
The jury only saw cash, the apartment was presented as a bank branch. They never even saw Mandi's actual motive for being there, the weed. So it wasn't clear to them the whole reason of why and when Mandi got cold and put on a man's jacket.
Mandi was cold from smoking on the balcony in a skimpy dress, and leaving the balcony door open, on a December morning before dawn. I think Mandi got Scott's jacket from her car, and put it on to humor Mulrenin. She wanted to wear a blazer the same as her new crush GQ Jim, and be his mini-me. And then Scott walked in and saw Mandi dressed up like Mulrenin in Scott's blazer - the same one from their "in a relationship" picture on her fake facebook page - and it sent him into a rage.
But it's also possible Mandi and Mulrenin went down to Mulrenin's car on the second floor, the car with all the shopping bags and recent clothing purchases in it. And then they are seen coming back behind her car on video, and she is wearing the jacket. Mulrenin's jacket with his wallet in it, could have come from his car. Mulrenin is not worried about security, he also left the new white iphone he just bought in his car. And he carries his cash separately from his wallet, in a money clip.
So it is possible Mandi ran out accidentally, with Mulrenin's wallet in the pocket of his jacket she was wearing, But I think more likely, Scott stayed behind to find the bullet when Mandi left alone. And Scott saw the wallet on the kitchen counter and took it. When girls are talking to another guy, guys get jealous. They want to steal from the guy the girls are talking to. I know this because when I talk to cute girls and other guys get jealous, they steal my stuff. Mulrenin had just had sex with Scott's girlfriend, so no doubt he is going to feel bitchy and slighted, and swipe the guy's wallet.
I know Mandi didn't steal anything on her way out. Because she knows where the weed is, and didn't take it. And there is also a white iphone on the kitchen counter, and she didn't take that either. For a girl like Mandi, weed and white iphones are the whole reason for having cash.
Though I do think Mandi felt betrayed by Mulrenin when she left there that day. She felt like sugar daddies are supposed to know their place, and Mulrenin got way too aggressive. She thought Mulrenin was more fun and casual than me. Old guys from strip clubs who do cocaine are supposed to be libertines. Nobody warned her Mulrenin was a control freak and a psycho.
It is possible to not get shot by someone who comes to your door. Though I can see how being coked up and drunk might make that path harder to find. Nevertheless, one should always have a plan for such eventualities, when you stick your dick in somebody's little girlfriend. I know I always do. Being a felon in possession of a firearm is illegal. Maybe there is a reason why cocaine is also illegal.
It was Mulrenin's property. But Love also had title to some property there, in the form of a facebook page with "in a relationship." That means he owns Mandi. Mulrenin was committing burglary of an occupied skank. That's not the law. It precedes the law, it's reality. I understand people in Seminole County are slow to the light.
Whoever took the wallet out, Mandi ended up with it. Because she is protective of her friends' stuff. When T left a backpack in Mandi's car and got arrested in Georgia, she wouldn't let me touch it for months. I paid her hundreds and fucked her raw right next to that backpack. There was nothing in it but oversized clothes. And she wouldn't let me touch it. She wouldn't even let me use T's Sunpass, after I bonded her out in Georgia and drove her home.
But Scott put a guilt trip on Mandi. She had been cheating on him. Back in October, she took Scott's phone number for her new phone, so that he couldn't call her and find out where she was. That is why he had to go knock on Mulrenin's door, it was her fault. So Mandi gave in and placated Scott, by letting him use a credit card to buy a new phone at Walmart. So he can keep track of her, and something like this won't happen again.
The money comes from magic card land anyway, and it is not like Mulrenin will miss it. Keep in mind, there is no way Mandi could have planned this in advance. There is no way she could have planned anything that happened, starting from when Scott knocked on Mulrenin's door. The real reason Scott wanted a new phone, was to distance himself from the phone that called Mulrenin. The idea to buy a phone using Mulrenin's card, came after.
Then Mandi saw the credit card worked, and could not resist using them herself. That is what people with frontal lobe lesions do, it is called "utilization behavior." They do the standard behavior, in this case using cards at Walmart, in the most inappropriate situation, where the guy who owned the credit cards is in a coma or dead. It was certainly not something she could have expected to do in advance, or would continue to do as part of any rational plan, after what happened.
Plus she had just lost her job, and needed money to buy Christmas gifts for her dad's step-family. She sucked Mulrenin's dick, and it is not like he will miss the money. Most girls wouldn't do what she did with the credit cards, and most girls would also not suck a stranger's dick. That's why Mulrenin doesn't bring most girls to his house. Mulrenin sought and found a girl who does dumb things, odd things. Doesn't mean she planned a robbery.
Scott still wanted to get Mandi more entangled, so that she could not testify against him. Scott's brother, last name Dye, was in prison at that time, for selling stolen stuff at a pawn shop. So Scott made Mandi go to the pawn shop, and sell the playstations they bought at Walmart. If she ever told what happened, she would go to prison herself, like his brother. And he bought an engagement ring, and made her promise to marry him, so she could not testify against him.
And Scott gave Mandi a story of how he wasn't there and she shot Mulrenin in self defense, which is what Scott planned to say anyway. There was a similar story of a guy in Scott's circle of friends, who got shot in the face by his hooker girlfriend. The hooker said it was self defense, and didn't even get arrested. Mandi knew there was no evidence Scott was even in the apartment, and she would probably get blamed herself if she called police, the same as when she called police at my house.
And so self defense is the story Mandi told Madara a hint of. She said Mulrenin was on G, which he probably was, and attacked her, that is all Mandi said to Madara.
Scott probably put the gun in Mandi's drawer. But that still was not enough. Scott was still crazy every day with fear that Mandi would go to the police. And that is when she came to my house.
And then Madara figured out what she thought happened, same as me. Madara was also familiar with Chris Dahl, same as me. And Madara said she got parts of the story from Mandi, same as me.* But my version is right. Madara's story was some flimsy thing that could not even hold up for a few minutes in court, not even sheltered from 99% of the actual evidence which is how the rules are designed in her favor.
I challenge you to put aside gossip from a jealous and vindictive mob, and look at all the evidence as I have done. Look at all the evidence which the jury was never allowed to come close to seeing, and see if what I am telling you is not 99.9% true. The jury spent less than two hours. I encourage you to spend years as I did.
If you don't want to look at all these facts, if you want to believe gossip or a halfwit dog-catcher, then don't get mad at me. And certainly don't call me a liar, when all you know about what happened that night is gossip. So impulsive are you, to take a young girl's life.
I now doubt Mandi even spoke to Madara one word, not even “hi”. One reason is the conversation Madara described sounded not like Mandi, more like Kaylee. Another reason is the things Madara said, sounded like the things Mandi complained on the phone about jail girls saying, around the same time. When Mandi complained to her mother on the phone, how girls were reading the same stuff Madara said in the paper, Mandi sounded like she was absolutely not saying anything to anybody. The state waited six months to reveal Madara's letter. Makes me wonder if the jail security video, which would show Mandi never spoke to Madara, gets deleted after six months.
18. YOUNG GIRLS AND OLD MEN - December 2016
It reminds me of my first bird-watching success, when I spotted backpage.com small fish "Miss Arab" at the Ace Cash Express on 79th and Biscayne. I got in line behind her to confirm the sighting. She was on the phone. I overheard "I just finished with him, he's gone. I'm just putting some money on my card so I can pay for my ad. And then I am going to treat myself. I don't owe nobody nothing."
When Mandi walked out of there, she didn't owe Mulrenin nothin'. Mulrenin knew she had a boyfriend. He knew she was cheating on the boyfriend to be with him. She did exactly what Mulrenin wanted her to do. And if the guy came knocking, and Mulrenin blew up at him with his temper and got shot in the leg, that is what Mulrenin signed up for. Mandi could have got shot also.
You say wait he was murdered, doesn't Mandi owe him to report that? Mandi told her mom on a phone call, that Mulrenin jumped totally unexpectedly, completely out of the blue. Given his drugs and medical condition, it is entirely possible he fell. And if Mandi believes he died from falling or from his own baseless decision, then she doesn't think there is any murder.
Mandi's only known statement on Mulrenin going over the balcony, is that it was unexpected and without provocation. And there certainly was no plan for a robbery, just a fight between two guys with short tempers. So does she report her boyfriend for getting into a fight, where she may feel she was a victim also, when it will at the very least make her homeless? How about when the last time she called the police on me, she is the one who ended up getting blamed and arrested?
If Mandi believes Mulrenin died by accident, did Mulrenin really want the kind of girl who is on the phone with police over everything that happens? He is a coke addict with convictions for DUI, battery, racketeering and prostitution, a rape accusation, and a VOP. He did not bring home a girl because he thought she would be chatty with the police every time something strange happens.
Would Mulrenin rather Mandi do what a nerdy girl does, and tell everyone this guy paid for sex with a hooker and did cocaine right before he died? Or would he rather she does what a hooker does, what all of his employees would do, and disappear and spend money on the credit cards? It's not like she is stealing from him if he is dead, or from anyone who will miss it. She thinks the money comes from magical credit card land that rich guys have bottomless access to.
And by not telling anybody what really happened, Mandi enables Mulrenin's sister to carry on with her fantasy about what a wonderful man her brother was. Which is why Mulrenin picked Mandi, because she was absolutely toothless.
When a boss makes an employee cheat on her boyfriend to come home with him, it is a little much to expect her to report her boyfriend to the police after the guy is dead, not her fault. Dead by accident or his own decision and action, from Mandi's point of view. Remember, witnesses called it in as a suicide. He was alone on the balcony. And he lingered long enough at the railing to for Russell Songer to say "Don't jump, Don't jump."
Don't expect to have an easy time getting the 911 call. There has been a concerted multi-year effort by everyone on the State's side, to change and forget those facts. Every witness has been influenced by a motive to get justice for what they were told really happened. If you want to argue with the facts and paint it as something else with no evidence except what you manufacture years later, then just call it what it is, a railroad job. With evil people running over a young girl for sport.
Guys spend our whole lives looking for a young girl dumb enough to let us stick our dick in her mouth, and then keep it shut afterwards. Finally we find one, and these assholes come and take her away.
19. LONG STORY SHORT - 2016 to 2019
Anybody can be accused of anything. All it takes is a cop dumb enough to completely ignore the facts. And if girls in jail can find out what she is accused of and claim she confessed, and jurors who don't care about the rules can find the word online that all the attorneys said didn't exist, then anybody can be convicted of anything, When paired with a video of that person using credit cards, and that word GHB. That is the standard of "proof" for first-degree murder, for giving a 21-year-old girl the longest sentence in the history of crime. There is no evidence beyond what I just told you. And the jail girls were even proven to be liars. It was really just one word, "GHB."
There was no video of Mulrenin sticking his dick in her mouth to pay the rent, just his DNA on her straw.
Mandi Jackson was a teenage hooker set back a few years by a brain injury. She was trying to grow up into a normal person. But it was hard to unlearn the habits of trying to please every guy at once, cheating on her main caretaker, keeping secrets about a hidden life, and generally being taken advantage of by much older guys. She felt sexually healed by the substance "G" which is basically a placebo, because it made her feel like how she thought sex is supposed to be for a normal person, sex for her own indulgence, not serving a customer.
G was her road to psychological recovery, a superstitious ritual to forget what guys with credit cards did to her, what I did to her 57 times.
But because people are simpleminded, complete strangers assumed it was GHB, and Mandi Jackson was drugging people and taking advantage of them. It really is not more complicated than that. A dozen news stories on Google about how she was caught with $25,000 of date-rape drug, made people believe Mandi Jackson was victimizing people. But even before that when she was 20, the Department of Children and Families found my joke story believable, that she was victimizing her pimp almost twice her age. It may have been the used BMW he financed in her name.
So a cop in Georgia mistook "G" for "the date rape drug," and the mob could never let it go until they gave her two life sentences. The primary inertia of the case was in two things that never happened:
1) Mandi was arrested for GHB
2) Scott showed up to a murder wearing gloves and booties
And there were conspiracies of convenience. Both Detective Sprague and the drug dealers at the strip clubs wanted to erase that Mandi was there all week. Sprague wanted to hide that Mulrenin was shot and bled on the sofa and gloves before he went over, Scott wanted to hide that Mulrenin was shot at all. Both Scott and CST Smolarek needed the gun in Mandi's drawer, one to create a story that did not involve Scott, the other to force her to testify against Scott.
You might say what happened is Mandi's fault for cheating with Mulrenin. Some people hate a slut and a cheater, almost as much as a date rapist. But Mulrenin was an equal party to the decision to cheat with Mandi. He knew she had a guy out there. This was not the first time he took advantage of a broke girl with a guy out there, it was more like the 1000th time. Mulrenin was a way more prolific pursuer of cheating hookups, over decades, than even Mandi could match.
I know from my own relationships with strippers over the years: Slipping between broke guys and their girls can be a risky business. You have to be on guard all the time, or some jealous guy will get you. Eventually it catches up with you.
Mandi did exactly what Mulrenin wanted her to do. But because she is an evil little two-timing slut who went from guy A to guy B and then back to guy A way too fast - as fast as only a stripper or strip-club manager in their strange ethical world could understand or relate to - they gave her two life sentences.
And probably also because the jurors were jerks who didn't care about the rules, and had to amuse themselves reading about her online. And they saw how the gossiping jail girls were right, Mandi really was into drugging people with GHB.
And I had a hand in it also, stalking her and terrorizing her dad and making stuff up about her, trying to provoke her boyfriend and get her out of the house. And training her mind that things could all always be fixed by having sex with an old guy for money. She used Mulrenin's credit cards at Walmart, just like I trained her to when I was her sugar daddy. Me and a lot of other satisfied old guys. Robbery had nothing to do with what went on (unless you count robbing the innocence of a teenager in a cheap motel).
Mulrenin went over the balcony on his own, she gave him exactly what he wanted, she didn't tell Scott to come in there. If that doesn't matter, then next time it won't matter when it is your kid or you. Next time they will run the railroad even faster.
They gave a 21-year-old girl two life sentences for going home and having sex with her 52-year-old boss. Because she needed a job. And everything else is gossip.
They sacrificed someone at the beginning of her life, for someone at the end of his life, as had long been her way. They came with a dim mind, a vicious spirit, and a belief that an ill-tempered strip-club manager deserved to have one of his conquests, somebody's granddaughter, buried alive with him like the Pharaoh. And mainly they did it for sport and amusement, because Mandi doesn't run as fast as the others.
From Michael Garcia to Neisha Cintron to Denise Smith to Benjamin Sprague to Jackson Athaide to Prosecutor Stewart Stone and many others, they gang-banged her with deleted evidence and lies. They came to find out they do like getting their rocks off on strippers after all, very much so.
And here I thought I was bad, for showing up without a rubber.
I am not going to tell stories about how Mandi Jackson is victimized in prison. I expect someone with a personality that asks to be victimized, to be victimized by scumbags. You cannot appreciate how eager to please she is, and how the more of a scumbag someone like James Mulrenin is, the more she will give herself to him. What shocks me, is that she was victimized worse than any strip-club scumbag ever could have done by state employees, and by a court system supposedly created to protect victims, which instead hired and rewarded the worst criminal victimizers they could find - put them back on the street to mingle with the unsuspecting - and marshaled lies to incite a mob against an innocent person.
20. DEAD AT 21 - 2100
Today, Mandi Jackson emailed me from prison that I am her "only friend." Five years after I paid to fuck her raw at the Starlite. I finally managed to destroy everything in her life but me, as a calculated rational response to her not liking me. But Jesus fuck, what a Rube Goldberg device it took to get here.
I got to fuck her 57 times before she fatted up. Mulrenin probably got to fuck her four times. Detective Sprague got to hook her like a little 3-inch flounder, the catch of a lifetime. And Prosecutor Stone got to fuck her the way dry little balding scumbags in government offices are confined to.
Creepy noodle Phil Archer is probably too dumb and desperate to ever get anything out of it. He already reached his Dilbert maximum. But wow, he sure is tough on crime. He let that animal who stole old people's heirlooms, Julie Madara, out of prison as a reward for lying in court and victimizing a new person. Sick sick people.
Chris Dahl got all the Dollhouse Dollars money. Adam Reiss got to fuck Carrie Rentz. And the Dollhouse credit-card whales got nothing.
I didn't ask anybody's comment before I wrote this book. They all had three years to come out with the truth, and didn't. The chance of them starting with the truth today, is near zero.
What is hidden is usually worse than what was revealed. And the truth of the sick aggression that took the life of Mandi May for sport and mediocre ambition, is worse than anything I have written here.
