CRESPOGRAM REPORT
OCTOBER 5, 2015
BARRED FROM NUMEROUS GOVERNMENTAL COMPUTER NETWORKS FOR TELLING THE TRUTH
MONTHS AFTER I REVEALED THAT THE MIAMI POLICE DEPARTMENT INVESTIGATED, AND THE STATE ATTORNEY’S OFFICE CONCLUDED THAT THERE WAS “PROBABLE CAUSE” TO BELIEVE THAT REVEREND JEROME STARLING COMMITTED “LEWD AND LASCIVIOUS BEHAVIOR” ON A HOMELESS TEENAGE BOY, BOTH THE POLICE DEPARTMENT AND MARC AND TERESA SARNOFF DEMONSTRATE THEIR LOYALTY BY CONTINUING TO TREAT HIM AS A BFF.  
PART II

On January 12th of this year I wrote what was even for me a rather amazing story of how detectives with the Miami Police Department had received a letter from a young man in prison who accused that in 1991, when he was a 12 year old runaway, he had been molested by Reverend Jerome Starling, and that over a 5 year period Starling had also kept him out of school while this molestation continued to take place while at the same time providing him with gifts to keep him from revealing what was going on.


While I would urge and encourage everyone to take the time to read my original story with all of the supporting documentation, here is a copy of the Incident Report prepared by the detectives that spells out what the alleged victim accused Starling of doing, how they attempted to collect evidence after so many years and the reasons why the State Attorney’s office decided even though they believed Starling had done what the victim alleged she decidednot to prosecute.

One seldom sees an acknowledgement that there is “probable cause” to believe that the accused “committed the crime” acknowledgement in  incident reports where the case gets dropped.


You got to wonder in what other American city would a Chief of Police whose officers conducted the investigation along with a City Commissioner and his candidate wife risk standing next to an accused child molester, knowing that if there was even the remotest possibility that the allegations are true, that their presence could be seen and used as a character reference to trick other vulnerable children into becoming prey for the accused molester? 


I have no way of knowing what, if anything School Board member Dorothy Bendross Mindingall, who was also in the photograph knows about this incident, although I’ve been told that there are many folks in Miami’s Black community who are aware about these accusations.


TRYING TO FOLLOW THE MONEY CONNECTION


After I wrote my original story, I wanted to follow up on the money and relationship that Jerome Starling had with the Miami Police Department and especially with Commissioner Marc Sarnoff.  In my original story I had included an email that he had written supporting Starling and his Ryka Issac Foundation getting $25,000 from the Law Enforcement Fund.

In June, the Police Department responded to my request for any and all documents that they had in their files about the Ryka Issac Foundation and Reverend Starling, by sending me the below flyer, claiming that this represented the only document they had.

This response was bullshit, and I made my feelings known in a followup email to PIO Frederica Burton.

Time continued to go by, and one afternoon in August I ran into Major Delrish Moss at the MRC, and expressed my thoughts about the failure of him and his department to respond to my request.


He denied that they were withholding any documents and claimed that the person who had control of the Law Enforcement Fund documents was Assistant City Attorney George Wysong, who is the Police Department’s Legal Advisor.


In September, when I tired of not hearing anything from Moss, I sent him the following email.

I have yet to receive a response, which raises questions about just what the Miami Police Department wants to hide about the ties between Starling and the Department?


The department’s unwillingness to come clean about those ties, especially in the period after 2013, when the allegations and investigation related to Starling being accused of being a child molester had become widely known within the Department - it was this knowledge that caused members of the department to reach out and ask me to request the file on this case - and especially the Department’s refusal to turn over any documents related to  ALL of the public money that has passed through the Department to Starling and his Foundation over the years clearly raises questions that the US Department of Justice should investigate, given that the Law Enforcement Fund monies are federal dollars.


TERESA AND THE REVEREND


At several of the debates Teresa Sarnoff has talked about her involvement with Reverend Starling’s Foundation - although she has also refrained from mentioning him by name - and bragged about the “No Stray Bullets” award she got from his foundation.


While I have not been able to confirm exactly when she got this award, I will go out on a limb and speculate it was at the 2014 Gala Fundraiser that was held on October 26, 2014, at the Downtown Hyatt Regency Hotel, where tables started at $2,500 and went to $10,000. 


The OMNI CRA, chaired by Teresa’s husband,the Commissioner, donated $5,000 to this event, and both of them were prominently featured on a the cover of the event’s program.


What’s really interesting is that if Teresa Sarnoff was as deeply involved with this foundation as she claims to have been, then how did they manage to mis-spell her name?


I mean really, if the Commissioner’s wife was really so large a part of the foundation’s activities that she merited an award, how come no one even knew how to spell her name?


And while we’re at it, just what exactly is the Commissioner receiving “Special Thanks” for?

It’s always Miami, Bitches!
