New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, 376 US 254 (1964)
"We are required in this case to determine for the first time
the extent to which the constitutional protections for speech
and press limit a State's power to award damages in a libel action
brought by a public official against critics of his official conduct."
My "crazy neighbor" lives one street over. Our backyards converged on the southwestern side of my property. It wasn't until after the closing on my home (early 2001) that I came to discover my crazy neighbor was a "walking code violation". My Crazy Neighbor was none other than, DEA Special Agent, Jack (John) G. Lunsford and his "sidekick" wife Kathy P. Lunsford. Kathy Lunsford actually is employed with The Bolles School, while she secretly engages in her domestic insanity alongside her deranged husband.
Very shortly after moving in, another neighbor on my street quietly informed me at length what my crazy neighbor really was like to deal with. This good neighbor welcomed me to the block and explained in excruciating detail that my neighbor was a DEA Special Agent suffering from all sorts of emotional problems and various psychological abnormalities.
I came to discover that my crazy neighbor entered this turbulent pattern of bullying and violent fits of rage after he performed an assignment in Columbia in the 90's. He returned to Jacksonville, FL and buried his in-ground swimming pool:
We also learned that our "deranged" crazy neighbor had a very similar dispute with the previous owner of our home, consisting of periodic verbal skirmishes and cigarette butts being passed from yard to yard over the fence line. The previous owner of our home was in his mid 70's when this crazy DEA Agent moved in (1992) and then in the year 2000 the previous owner of our home died and his home went up for sale by the surviving family members.
We quickly came to realize that attempts at reasonable discussion with this "Special Agent" could be potentially dangerous. Our crazy neighbor had an old rotting stockade fence, filled with wood destroying insects and it was falling over into our property line, so, as it stood, I really had no choice but to file an official property safety code enforcement complaint through Jacksonville-Duval County government services.
In early February of 2001 I contacted George (Buddy) Tawes, Supervisory Inspector, City of Jacksonville Property Safety Division (904) 391-3600 firstname.lastname@example.org - George Tawes agreed to inspect my neighbor's property and fence. Mr. Tawes was able to view my neighbor's fence caving in on us and that it was seething with wood destroying insects. Mr. Tawes immediately served my neighbor a property safety correction notice-citation which my neighbor still denies receiving to this day. Just ask him about it. It's like that rotting fence of his never even existed. (!)
The following Saturday morning (very early), I was awakened to my crazy neighbor screaming bloody murder in his backyard, as he spent all of that day (Saturday starting at 7:00am and into late Sunday) breaking down the many pickets and dismantling the framework.
Witnessing this neighbor's wild behavior tearing down his old rotted fence that weekend genuinely frightened us and as a result, we decided to install an 8' cypress stockade fence with 4" pickets and a pressure treated frame, all around the sides and rear-perimeter of our property line.
Going based on our survey we attempted to install our fence.
Survey performed by:
NATHAN E. PERRET AND ASSOCIATES
1614 Atlantic University Circle
Jacksonville, FL 32207
Perret and Associates
1710 Shadowood Ln
Jacksonville, FL 32207-1135
There was a section of chain link fence that was originally installed by previous owner of our home that ran diagonally into our property line, that had to be removed to create a straight fence line for the new cypress fence. When the Fencepro crew began cutting that section of chain link fence off our property line, my crazy neighbor came barreling out of his backdoor like a raging bull with steam coming out of his nose, he then pushed the Fencepro installation crew out of his way and proceeded to chase me, screaming at the top of his lungs, fanning his copy of his survey in hand. As I entered the backdoor to my patio room the "Special Agent" broke off his attack. I then called 911. During that 911 call I exited the home to the front; when the 911 operator asked me if my neighbor was carrying any weapons, I said "No, I don't see any weapons on him." My neighbor shrieked in response: " I am a weapon!", which was easily overheard by the 911 operator.
Trespass Order issued by Jacksonville Sheriff's office

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office responded to the call, all the while my crazy neighbor bellowed that we could not install our fence based on our survey performed by Nathan Perret and Associates, that our survey was "wrong" and that his survey (also done by Nathan Perret and Associates) was "right".
We were forced by the Jacksonville police to stop the Fencepro work crew mid-job and contact Perret for an explanation. Nathan Perret sent out another survey crew to examine the situation. In the meantime, our "DEA Special Agent" crazy neighbor, descended on Perret's office the following morning, brandishing his badge, "status" and credentials. Following our neighbor's threats of a lawsuit against Nathan Perret, he deposited his Special Agent's business card on Perret's desk. Later that week we got a call from Nathan Perret stating that he was sorry if there was any "confusion" in our survey (after we bought the property) but: "I would rather be sued by you than sued by him since he is an agent of the federal government. See you in court sir. Good day."
Based on our newly revised survey, we were forced to lose land from our original survey that was lawfully ours, as several years back, the city equally divided the "service alleys" that once existed between many of these properties.
This "bullying" incident between my neighbor and Nathan Perret's staff was the first indication into what has evolved into a distinct pattern of abuse (over 5 years) by this "Special Agent" who seems to wield "teflon-like immunity" to all local laws, codes and statutes by simply relying on his federal agent status, engaging in intimidation and threatening enforcement personnel all along his way.
Following our successful installation of our fence, my crazy neighbor's stalking erupted into threats of physical harm and I was forced to seek a protective injunction against repeat violence from the Duval County State Attorney's Office.
FOURTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT
Harry Shorstein, State Attorney
330 East Bay Street
Duval County Courthouse, Room 600
Jacksonville, Florida 32202
Petition for injunction for protection against repeat violence
We waited for hours that day in court. When the petition finally came to a hearing, it was the last case of the day as 4th Circuit Court Judge Mitchell and the bailiffs emptied the courtroom. Our neighbor was even represented by US Attorney Ralph Lee who came as a "friend of the court" to speak on our crazy neighbor's behalf. A permanent injunction against repeat violence would have meant our neighbor would have lost his privilege to carry and possess a firearm.
The hearing was a complete charade (a "blue shield" protection of a rogue federal agent), with our crazy neighbor ranting and raving to 4th Circuit Judge Mitchell about political issues totally irrelevant to the instant matter. Our crazy neighbor was given a slap on the wrist by Judge Mitchell and sent home, permanent injunction denied.
Although the very next day, even after Judge Mitchell warned my crazy neighbor to stay away from me at the bench, I witnessed my crazy neighbor at the foot of our driveway rifling through our trash and recycling bin.
It was at this stage that my crazy neighbor began his letter writing campaign, while he systematically stalked me throughout the years 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, and 2005. My crazy neighbor's favorite "sweet spot" is to stand at the foot of my driveway accompanied by his golden retriever "Nugget". Also noteworthy, are my crazy neighbor's deliberate efforts to swerve with his vehicle, hoping to hit me, while passing by in his Toyota Fourrunner, whenever I'm approaching the road (on foot) mowing the lawn.
Even though numerous calls have been made to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office and State Attorney Harry Shorstein's staff Assistant State Attorneys requesting relief, my crazy neighbor's stalking and harassment has gone on unimpeded for years. Throughout the years I've contacted the Florida Attorney General, the Governor's office, DEA's Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) (Miami).... all to no avail. Even the US Postal Service Inspector General and the Jacksonville Postmaster General would not take action against my crazy neighbor's deliberate use of the US MAIL to stalk, incite, harass, instill fear and purposefully cause dismay.
See my crazy neighbor's letters mailed to my home:
As if things weren't bad enough, we have also suffered for 5 years due to our crazy neighbor's chronically barking dog "Nugget". There was a year 2001 citation issued by Jacksonville Animal Control relative to Nugget's daily nuisance barking, although after our crazy neighbor intimidated former Jacksonville Animal Control Chief, Mr. Merritt and his Animal Control Officer Mr. Clark, who issued the citation; neither of those gentlemen dared to show up for municipal court when our crazy neighbor moved for his hearing, so the dog noise ordinance citation had to be thrown out.
My crazy neighbor then proceeded to file a complaint against Fencpro's contractor license with the city of Jacksonville and he even was successful at dragging Fencpro's owner into a retaliatory contractor oversight hearing. My crazy neighbor failed in his efforts to damage Fencpro's contractor license. My crazy neighbor even filed a frivolous (retaliatory) code enforcement complaint with the city of Jacksonville claiming that our fence was "too close" to our house. The complaint was dismissed without merit.

Last year I got a visit from Judy Lyorla (904) 535-7268 - United States Office of Personnel Management with a fat file in hand, copious with my crazy neighbor's Domestic Violence history associated with our home. Judy explained that she was investigating my neighbor for his post 9/11 security clearance renewal. Judy asked me if I thought my neighbor "posed a risk to the United States". I pointed to the case file she had in hand and our years of dealing with his miserable insanity as I answered her questions. Judy then asked me if I was willing to testify against my crazy neighbor based on his years of harassment and stalking. I declined citing my crazy neighbor's pattern and practice of retaliatory stalking and harassment.
Jacksonville City Council recently strengthened the dog noise ordinance:
Sec. 462.302. Noise.
(1) It shall be unlawful for the owner of an animal to allow the animal, to bark, meow, whine, howl, or to make other sounds common to its species, persistently or continuously for a period of thirty (30) minutes or longer when such animal is not contained within an enclosure sufficient to baffle loud noises and render them reasonably unobjectionable. This subsection shall not apply to animals maintained on land zoned for agricultural purposes.
(2) A violation of this section shall subject the violator to a civil fine of (Fifty) Two Hundred Fifty Dollars. Each animal (remove each animal) and each separate occasion is considered a separate violation. The animal control officer may cite the owner of an animal for violation of such subsection when either the animal control officer has received, from an (at least 2) adult witness (witnesses from different households), a (remove a) sworn affidavit (affidavits) attesting to the animal's having committed a nuisance pursuant to such subsection, or the citing animal officer has witnessed the commission of such a nuisance.
(3) As authorized by F. S. § 828.27(7), a violation of the noise provision of this section may be punishable, upon conviction by the court, by a fine of up to Five Hundred Dollars or by imprisonment in the county jail for a period not to exceed sixty (60) days or by both fine and imprisonment.
Due to my crazy neighbor's dog's incessant barking (10:00am-5:00pm daily)
Mr. David Flagler
Chief of Jacksonville Animal Care and Control
2580 W. First Street
Jacksonville, FL 32254
Mr. Flagler could hear "Nugget" barking during our many telephone conversations and as a result, Mr. Flagler agreed to begin documentation of the violation, thereby making some effort to curb Nugget's nuisance barking.
As instructed by Chief Flagler, I began to videotape Nugget's chronic barking fits. I got excellent footage and learned a great deal about nuisance barking problems and the steps to take to bring about resolution from http://www.barkingdogs.net/ .
My crazy neighbor was cited on January 10, 2006 after David Flagler and his Operations Manager Terry viewed the tape, then all of us signed affidavits attesting to the tape's authenticity plus time and date accuracy. Two citations, $250.00 each, were issued for days January 6th and 7th, 2006 as evidenced on the videotape, in flagrant violation of 462.302 .
Predictably, my crazy neighbor moved for a hearing against the city which was held on Wednesday, January 25th 2006, 1:30pm Courtroom #5:
Duval County Courthouse
3490 Beach Blvd.
Jacksonville, FL 32207
Judge Gary Joseph Presiding
I arrived at 1:15pm at the Southgate plaza and parked at the far end of the parking lot near Wendy's. I logged in at approximately 1:25pm as a witness to testify about the authenticity of the tape. My crazy neighbor showed up in court approximately 1:45pm as I later discovered that he and his spouse had stalked me out in their Toyota Fourrunner beforehand, while I was parking in the Southgate parking lot and then after I entered the courthouse my crazy neighbor parked his Fourrunner nosed opposite to my car.
The bailiff seated my crazy neighbor right next to me in row 3. This was the closest I had ever been in physical contact to my neighbor and I saw this as an opportunity to perhaps bring about a discussion relating to resolution and I asked that he cease his stalking and harassment activities. My crazy neighbor was shaking like a leaf and toe tapping as he thrust himself up from row three and told the bailiff: "Bailiff, this witness is harassing me."
When it came time for the city to present it's case, my crazy neighbor moved to "Exclude the tape as the complainant is not an agent of the government and this violates my 4th amendment rights." Incredibly, Judge Joseph automatically moved to exclude the scathing video surveillance that indicted my neighbor for his willful and wanton violations and the Jacksonville City attorney failed to even object. The City attorney looked at his shoes most of the time, instead of at the Judge, when this motion by my crazy neighbor was made. I knew at that stage that the case was going south, as my crazy neighbor yet again had another opportunity to share in his misguided and ill-informed rhetoric about my personal politics. Judge Joseph shut him down cold. After allowing a diatribe of irrelevant questions by my crazy neighbor and his enabling spouse about how the tape was produced, Judge Joseph ended it and issued the following statement and verbal warning: "I know something happened here Mr. Lunsford and if this issue should arise again, this court will remember what happened here today. I expect that there will be no retaliation Mr. Lunsford." as Judge Joseph rescinded the citations totaling $500.00.
As I appropriately warned Mr. Flagler back in December of 2005, my crazy neighbor is a vicious bully and will retaliate against and attack anyone that attempts to engage in an enforcement capacity against him.
Read my crazy neighbor's diatribe - demanding Chief Flagler's immediate resignation and prosecution:
Stalking Motion Light - Hanging foil to trigger motion lights - Stringing the neighbor's tree with trash
Hanging a poncho - Fruit sign hanging from trapeze - Leaving trash (foil) on their bench
"Tip-toeing through the tulips" in his underwear at 11:00pm to rearrange the foil
Hurling a rock attached to a rope over neighbor, June Wheeler's live oak tree,
attaching her property to hang his insanity and thereby further inciting conflict.
June Wheeler is a little old lady and a widow.
Lunsford preys on the weak and defenseless just like a jackal.
June Wheeler's son who visits his mom often, can be quoted:
"He (Lunsford) needs to live in an apartment."
On February 21, 2006 Jacksonville Neighborhoods Department, Property Safety Division agreed to come out and perform an inspection of my crazy neighbor's property.
It was nothing less than a travesty to learn that our crazy neighbor's efforts to make his property as much of a nuisance and an eyesore as possible, thereby destroying all of the surrounding property values in his quest for () - is all "acceptable behavior" associated with real property ownership in "suburban" Duval County neighborhoods:
Permanently hanging foil wrap from a fishing line.
Permanently erecting a handheld bathroom type mirror - staked into the ground.
Permanently erecting a wood stake in the ground, attaching a string and a paper scroll to it.
Permanently erecting a "dog sign" - from a branch of the neighbor's Live Oak tree, directly adjacent to our property line and fence line (thus declaring his "pyrrhic victory" over the Jacksonville Animal Care and Control's barking citations, Sec. 462.302. Noise)
The only facet of the property safety complaint supported by the City of Jacksonville against my crazy neighbor, was Section 518.412(c) for the black and green mold and mildew encompassing the exterior of his entire home and roof.
A mold and mildew property safety code citation was issued by Code enforcement officers Danny Connell and Bruce O. Chauncey email@example.com(see below). This latest enforcement effort by Jacksonville city government is certain to make my crazy neighbor go into high gear, once again threatening Jacksonville city employees with his frivolous "dereliction of duty" complaints (such as the complaint my crazy neighbor filed on Chief Flagler, in retaliation for the barking citations Flagler issued) instead of my crazy neighbor spending his time and effort bringing his property into compliance with "decent, safe and sanitary" standards.

Autumn - 2006 Update
As if things couldn't have deteriorated more, my crazy neighbor set out on a mission to vicariously live out his unmitigated hatred against me by inciting a hate crime, Florida Statutes, Title 46, 775.085 on my street. My crazy neighbor successfully renewed his hate campaign by indoctrinating the residents that live in four single family homes that are positioned directly across the street from my home.
My crazy neighbor engaged Gus Reinhardt, a de facto tenant, who lived with his girlfriend Brooke M. Berg, at a property owned by:
Dr. Jeffrey Sandler
South Moon Properties I and II LLC
12387 Mandarin Road
Jacksonville, FL 32223-1893
While I was away dealing with a death in my immediate family, my crazy neighbor spent the entire summer of 2006 conspiring with Gus Reinhardt, Brooke M. Berg, Heather Webb, Spear Bradley, Robert and Tonia Lee and the Lee's next door neighbor, who is yet another "Special Agent" for the DEA and his wife.
Gus Reinhardt was a former area manager for Petsmart, Inc. for seven years.
Mr. Gus Reinhardt is currently the manager of:

Mr. Reinhardt trained Brooke M. Berg's dog to identify my property as it's own by instructing the Berg Dalmatian to urinate and defecate on my property for months on end while I was away dealing with a fatality in my immediate family.
On September 25, 2006 I returned to my home in Jacksonville, FL and parked my Penske rental truck in front of my home. I needed to make room for the truck in my driveway, so I went to move my car. In the process of backing my automobile out of my driveway I could see via my left side view mirror, Mr. Gus Reinhardt (across the street) at the doorway of Brooke M. Berg's rental home, instructing Ms. Berg's Dalmatian to attack me. Brooke M. Berg's Dalmatian came tearing out of her home, on orders from Gus Reinhardt, and came barreling up my driveway. Brooke M. Berg's Dalmatian was so aggressively violent in the attack that I was unable to exit my automobile for two minutes. On September 26, 2006 I called David Flagler, Chief of Jacksonville Animal Care and Control to report the attack and how I witnessed the intent and purpose in how Gus Reinhardt used specific hand signals and voice commands to instruct Brook M. Berg's Dalmatian to come after me on my own property. On the evening of September 26, 2006 after Mr. Gus Reinhardt was notified of my complaint by Jacksonville Animal Care and Control, Gus Reinhardt disturbed the peace at 10:30pm screaming from Brooke M. Berg's front porch: "I'm being attacked! I'm being attacked."
On Friday, September 29, 2006 I emerged from my home to witness Brooke M. Berg stationed on her front lawn close to the street, with her Dalmatian unleashed, poised for yet another attack. I told Ms. Berg in no uncertain terms that unless the hatred ceased immediately I was going to seek an injunction for protection against repeat violence on her and her de facto tenant Gus Reinhardt. Brooke M. Berg shrieked the following epiphytes from her side of the street: "You're insane!" "Shut the fuck up!" "Queer asshole!" etc. etc. It was after this diatribe of filth by Brooke M. Berg that I realized just how seriously the matter was escalating and that Brooke M. Berg was actually reciting hate speech, displaying open prejudice against sexual preference. Florida Statutes, Title 46, 775.085
From September 29, 2006 until the present, I have witnessed all the adjacent neighbors living in the households indicated in the photograph above, enjoin Mr. Gus Reinhardt and Brooke M. Berg in a daily campaign of hate speech based on sexual preferences and religious intolerance, open container liquor parties in the center of the street and wanton efforts to make a public nuisance, destroying any peace and tranquility. Respondents' hate includes blatant assaults hurled across the street, and everything else one could imagine from a group of people engaged in hate based criminal activity, just like my crazy neighbor who lives one street over: "You're a freak and everyone in the neighborhood knows it!" shrieked by neighbor, Ms. Heather Webb's de facto tenant, Spear Bradley (October 14, 2006) while Heather Webb's boxers were once again running at large.
DANGEROUS DOG CLASSIFICATIONS ISSUED
DANGEROUS DOG CLASSIFICATIONS DISMISSED
On October 2nd and 3rd 2006 I was forced to seek three (3) injunctions
for protection against repeat violence:
Fair Use Provision of the Copyright Act
Judge J. BRAD STETSON
State of Florida, Circuit Court, 4th Judicial Circuit
Duval County Courthouse
330 E. Bay St., Room 103
Jacksonville, FL 32202
On the morning of October 17, 2006 Judge Brad Stetson presided over the Domestic Violence (DV) case. It is important to note that this domestic violence (DV) case was specifically assigned to Judge Stetson via Judge Mitchell, the same judge who presided over my crazy neighbor's injunction for protection against repeat violence case back in 2001, and empowered my crazy neighbor to stalk me for over 5 years with the assistance of US Attorney Ralph Lee.
When the case docket was open I was standing across from Ms. Heather Webb, Mr. Spear Bradley, Ms. Brooke M. Berg, Mr. Gus Reinhardt, Dr. Sandler the landlord, Mrs. Tonia Lee and her husband Robert Lee in addition to the other DEA Agent's wife who lives next door to the Lee's (whose name is not known and was never disclosed at the hearing). Judge Brad Stetson wasted no time in his flagrant display of animus for me that is well evident on the record. It was so obvious that Judge Stetson and Judge Charles O. Mitchell, Jr. had engaged in ex parte communication prior to Judge Stetson hearing this case. When Judge Stetson began reading excerpts from my petition he was so contaminated by Judge Charles O. Mitchell that he actually confused Gus Reinhardt as the Petitioner and stated: "Are you Gus Reinhardt?" Reinhardt responded, "Yes your honor." Judge Stetson responded, "All right. You did receive and -- you requested and received a temporary injunction that says that he may not harm you or threaten you or contact you or come within 100 feet of your front door." I attempted to correct Judge Stetson by saying, "You have it reversed." Judge Brad Stetson then proceeded to scold me, "Don't say a word sir till I ask you! Do you understand?!" Until Judge Brad Stetson realized his mistake!
Judge Brad Stetson was rude and silenced me innumerable times throughout the hearing. Judge Brad Stetson even allowed Brooke M. Berg's landlord, Dr. Sandler (a former military psychiatrist), to enter into an insulting diatribe of "psychoanalysis" in an attempt to openly denigrate me at the bench. Judge Brad Stetson permitted a pack (mob) mentality to occur in his courtroom, which was completely empty of witnesses other than staff members of the court, as Judge Brad Stetson recommended that I sell my house. Judge Stetson continued in his diatribe by indicating that since so many people (8) were standing against me (thereby condoning Respondents' hate crime) that "It might just prove that you're wrong and all these are reasonable folk!"
Anytime throughout the hearing that I made the slightest effort to defend myself against the onslaught by 7 of my neighbors and Dr. Sandler, baited on by Judge Stetson, I was silenced and threatened by Judge Brad Stetson. Judge Brad Stetson was so hostile and pompous that he even threatened me with jail before he made his final order.
Judge Stetson's final words were: "The credibility of the other side is more reasonable and believable than that of the plaintiff...I do find that these complaints were frivolous. If you had attorneys down here, the attorneys could be asking for attorneys fees to be assessed against the plaintiff in this case and that might be appropriate...I hope you all can forgive and I do appreciate the offers of forgiveness and the loving offers that were made by the Respondents today here trying to be good neighbors."
When Mr. Reinhardt returned from the courthouse on October 17, 2006 to Brooke M. Berg's rental home, Reinhardt gleefully hollered lyrics from the driveway directly at our home:
"Cause I'm free to do what I want any old time!" reinhardtfree.wav
(sung originally by The Rolling Stones then later redone by The Soupdragons)
Investigators of this website will be able to examine the court transcripts and related source digital recording of the October 17, 2006 hearing and discover that when I was cross-examining Gus Reinhardt to determine the actual source of the hate speech, Gus Reinhardt admitted under oath, that John G. & Kathryn P. Lunsford (my crazy neighbors that live one street over) were Gus Reinhardt's primary source of hateful information - an admission on the record that Judge Brad Stetson willfully suppressed from the bench on October 17, 2006.

RE: JUDGE J. BRAD STETSON and CHARLES O. MITCHELL, Jr., 4th JUDICIAL CIRCUIT - JUDICIAL CONDUCT VIOLATIONS OF CANONS 1, 2 & 3
Dear Ms. Kennerly:
The Judicial Qualifications Commission is hereby requested to begin an investigation and formal inquiry into violations of Canons 1, 2 and 3 of the Code of Judicial Conduct for the State of Florida.
Judge Charles O. Mitchell and Judge J. Brad Stetson recently engaged in ex parte communication over my 2001 efforts to seek an Injunction for Protection Against Repeat Violence against my neighbor John G. (Jack) Lunsford, a Special Agent for the Drug Enforcement Administration.
Judge Charles O. Mitchell committed ex parte communication with Judge Stetson, who Judge Mitchell assigned to a recent series of domestic violence cases I filed in October 2006 against various Respondents living in my neighborhood, engaged in concerted hate crime activities.
Judge Mitchell violated Canon 3, (9) A judge shall not, while a proceeding is pending or impending in any court, make any public comment that might reasonably be expected to affect its outcome or impair its fairness or make any nonpublic comment that might substantially interfere with a fair trial or hearing.
Ex parte communication initiated by Judge Mitchell during his assignment of the case to Judge Stetson, severely prejudiced Judge Stetson leading Judge Stetson to violate Canon 1 - A Judge Shall Uphold the Integrity and Independence of the Judiciary"A judge should participate in establishing, maintaining, and enforcing high standards of conduct, and shall personally observe those standards so that the integrity and independence of the judiciary may be preserved."
During the Domestic Violence hearing on October 17, 2006 - Judge Brad Stetson violated Canon 2 - A Judge Shall Avoid Impropriety and the Appearance of Impropriety in all of the Judge's Activities (a) A judge shall respect and comply with the law and shall act at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary.
Judge Stetson wasn't satisfied with his outrageous misconduct and overt violations of Canons 1 and 2, as he blazed on to willfully violate Canon 3 - A Judge Shall Perform the Duties of Judicial Office Impartially and Diligently - When Judge Stetson began reading excerpts from my petition he was so contaminated by Judge Charles O. Mitchell that he actually confused Gus Reinhardt, who was under a Temporary Injunction, as the Petitioner and stated: "Mr. Reinhardt you understand that he's been ordered to stay away from you." When I spoke up and stated "Your Honor, you have it backwards!" Judge Brad Stetson scolded me sternly until he realized his FREUDIAN slip.
(2) A judge shall be faithful to the law and maintain professional competence in it. A judge shall not be swayed by partisan interests, public clamor, or fear of criticism.
(3) A judge shall require order and decorum in proceedings before the judge.
(4) A judge shall be patient, dignified, and courteous to litigants, jurors, witnesses, lawyers, and others with whom the judge deals in an official capacity,
5) A judge shall perform judicial duties without bias or prejudice. A judge shall not, in the performance of judicial duties, by words or conduct manifest bias or prejudice,
(7) A judge shall accord to every person who has a legal interest in a proceeding, or that person's lawyer, the right to be heard according to law. A judge shall not initiate, permit, or consider ex parte communications, or consider other communications made to the judge outside the presence of the parties concerning a pending or impending proceeding
(1) A judge shall disqualify himself or herself in a proceeding in which the judge's impartiality might reasonably be questioned, including but not limited to instances where:
(a) the judge has a personal bias or prejudice concerning a party or a party's lawyer, or personal knowledge of disputed evidentiary facts concerning the proceeding;
Review of the court transcripts and source tape will reveal Judge Stetson behaving like the abusive bully that he is (against a Petitioner) in a domestic violence case requiring protection from repeat violence, that has gone on for over 5 years. Cross examination of Respondent Gus Reinhardt on October 17, 2006 revealed that the genesis of the hate campaign forwarded by numerous other neighbors is directly tied to hate speech promulgated and disseminated by DEA Special Agent John (Jack) G. Lunsford and his wife Kathryn P. Lunsford. The Lunsfords had previously appeared before Judge Charles O. Mitchell in a similar, related domestic violence matter in 2001. John (Jack) G. Lunsford was released from his injunction by Judge Charles O. Mitchell due to Lunsford potentially losing his job with the DEA which requires him to carry a firearm.
Judge Stetson openly abused me in court and in turn gave the Respondents license to attack me relentlessly. Stetson made all sorts of outrageous remarks noting that the area that I live in isn't a neighborhood conducive to the mistreatment I described in court levied by Respondents, and that he (Stetson) has attended "social engagements" nearby where I live. Judge Brad Stetson went on to attack me when I stated that I was intent upon filing a criminal complaint under Florida Statutes, Title 46, 775.085 (Florida's hate crime statute) against Respondents. Judge Brad Stetson quickly admonished me by stating: "You'll be wasting your time!" and "It won't go anywhere!"
Before Judge Stetson ruled, he was certain to look me square in the face and then threaten me with jail: "I will hold you in contempt and put you in jail if you say one word after I announce my decision!"
Judge Stetson embraced and coddled Respondent hate mongers throughout the hearing while ignoring key evidence about who initiated the hate, thereby empowering these criminals that live near me.
Irresponsible or improper conduct by judges erodes public confidence in the judiciary.
The Judicial Qualifications Commission's immediate attention to this matter is requested.

RE: FLORIDA HATE CRIME COMPLAINT - Title 46, 775.085
Dear Mr. Baily:
I am requesting that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in concert with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office conduct an investigation of Hate Crime Activities within my neighborhood. There is unrebutted testimony by Gus Reinhardt present on the court record dated October 17, 2006 that ties DEA Special Agent John (Jack) G. Lunsford and Kathryn P. Lunsford to recent hate crime activities perpetrated by Domestic Violence Respondent neighbors: Gus Reinhardt, Brook M. Berg, Robert and Tonia Lee, Spear Bradley and Heather Webb and Dr. Sandler (a landlord).
Due to homophobic and religious hatred precipitated (and continuously incited) by DEA Special Agent John (Jack) G. Lunsford for 5 years running, I am enduring hate crime victim status within my neighborhood by Respondents - Lunsford, Reinhardt, Berg, Bradley, Webb, Lee and Sandler.
Your immediate attention is requested.
Let justice be done though the heavens may fall,

On October 20, 2006 - the very same day that Ms. Brooke M. Berg filed her petition for protection against repeat violence, I received a hate mail "newsletter", by USMAIL, with no return address, that was obviously authored by Ms. Brooke M. Berg and Mr. Gus Reinhardt. The Berg-Reinhardt newsletter titled "Monterey Legal Eagle" was laced with slander, numerous counts of defamation, including several false domestic terror threats and calls for vigilante action by Monterey Street neighbors. The "newsletter" was copied (cc:) "All 31 residents of Monterey Street: David Flagler, Jacksonville Mayor John Peyton, John Rutherford, Councilman Art Shad, Agent Thomas Ingles, Folio Weekly, and the Florida Times Union." The Berg-Reinhardt hate mail newsletter was faxed on October 20, 2006 to Gerald Baily, Commissioner, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Sheriff Rutherford's Office and the United States Postal Service, Office of Inspector General for investigation.
On October 20, 2006 - Mr. Gus Reinhardt proudly announced his co-authorship of the "Monterey Legal Eagle" bellowing the following statement (like a newsboy) from Brooke Berg's front yard:
On October 25, 2006 - the original hate newsletter and its associated envelope was placed into the custody of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, Intelligence Unit, designated under JSO case number #959390 and assigned to Detective Carney, Intelligence, (904) 630-7275 - (904) 630-2185.
On October 24, 2006 - I was served by the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office with a fraudulent cross petition for protection against repeat violence. Brooke M. Berg's petition (assigned the same case number when I was the original Petitioner against Brooke M. Berg) is chock full of her fraudulant allegations solely intended to retaliate against me (the original Petitioner) for previously filing petitions for protection against repeat violence against her (Berg) and her de facto tenant boyfriend, Gus Reinhardt.
This ludicrous and fraudulent petition filed by Brooke M. Berg was later dismissed without merit, by Judge Linda F. McCallum (904) 630-2540 - just before she went to the criminal bench for the 4th Circuit. We hired Refik W. Eler to represent us at the hearing but at the last minute, Refik Eler showed his true colors (yellow-bellied thief) and filed a withdraw notice with Judge McCallum. Linda McCallum permitted thieving, racist, Refik W. Eler (in her chambers) to withdraw from the case when Gus Reinhardt started firing his Co2 powered BB gun at the jews across the street.
Later at the hearing, Judge McCallum screamed directly at Brooke Berg and Gus Reinhardt from the bench (with her page-boy haircut bouncing in the air) "I'm going to get to the bottom of this!!" and "I will rule later on this matter, you will hear from me via USMAIL." Yet, in the end, even Judge McCallum provided no judicial relief and exercised absolutely no injunctive authority against any of the respondent hate mongers, since a crazed DEA agent (Jack Lunsford) was actually the primary catalyst to the crimes perpetrated against our residence.
Brooke M. Berg's fraudulent petition for protection against repeat violence was actually temporarily approved and signed, by none other than, Judge J. Brad Stetson on October 20, 2006 - even though 72 hours prior, Ms. Berg flagrantly perjured herself about her dog "always being leashed", as Judge Stetson proceeded to ask Berg: "Have there been any other problems between you and them?" to which Ms. Berg responded, "With other.. with other neighbors. I have not spoken -- I actually never officially met them."
At the hearing on October 17, 2006 in front of Judge Brad Stetson, Brooke M. Berg deliberately omitted her premeditated (future plans), alleged on her current petition, dated October 20, 2006. Brooke M. Berg again perjured herself with the State Attorney's office, on her October 20, 2006 petition, by manufacturing "incidents of repeat violence" on September 29, 2006 and October 14, 2006 - in order get the 4th Circuit Court to support her fraudulent petition for protection against repeat violence.
During the hearing on October 17, 2006 Brooke M. Berg also conveniently never bothered to elaborate to Judge Brad Stetson about her allegations of "months" of "constant fear", "threatening and obsessive actions","I have no where else to turn", and "actual physical assault" which she (Berg) filed 72 hours later, on October 20, 2006 with the State Attorney's Office - after the October 17, 2006 hearing was dismissed .
Brooke M. Berg's fraudulent petition was unlawfully executed by Judge Brad Stetson on October 20, 2006 - as I had previously filed a Judicial Qualifications Commission complaint (present on this website) against Judge Stetson on October 18, 2006 with the "JQC" in Tallahassee, FL by facsimile and US Mail that day.
Ever since Brooke M. Berg's fraudulent petition against repeat violence was put into effect by Judge Brad Stetson, the following felonious acts by Petitioner Brooke M. Berg and her "witness" Gus Reinhardt have been perpetrated against our residence:
October 20, 2006 - First Hate Mail Newsletter received titled: "Monterey Legal Eagle"
October 25, 2006 - First Hate Mail Newsletter taken into evidence under JSO Case Number #959390 as my crazy neighbor, DEA Agent Jack Lunsford, walks past JSO Officer, R. J. Handres' (Badge #7242) patrol car and barges into Robert and Tonia Lee's home.
October 27, 2006 - Second Hate Mail Newsletter titled "Monterey Legal Eagle" taken into evidence by JSO Officer, Tom Martin, Badge #5671. This second hate mail newsletter "update" was laced with even more vituperate hate speech, slander, numerous defamations of character and also contained extensive false domestic terror threats.
October 31, 2006 - Halloween Evening - Brooke M. Berg (who feigns to the 4th Circuit Court she lives in "constant fear") with assistance from Gus Reinhardt, violated the provisions of the injunction that clearly enjoins BOTH parties. Berg and Reinhardt violated the provisions outlined by repeatedly screaming at our house throughout the night, in response to a Jewish Menorah displayed in our living room window:
"DO NOT BLOCK THE DRIVE! DANGEROUS DOGS! I HAVE A CAMERA!"
November 1, 2006 - JSO Officer, R. A. LeStrange (Badge #7348) responds to a dispatch call I made to JSO in order to pick up a CD recording of the October 31, 2006 Halloween evening harassment by Berg and Reinhardt. R. A. LeStrange then files a totally biased, erroneous and maliciously defamatory report, which was routed to the FDLE and the FBI:
November 2, 2006 - 11:38pm (captured by surveillance) - Gus Reinhardt fires a CO2 powered BB pistol from across the street, stationed in Brooke M. Berg's driveway area, hiding behind the cover of bushes, indicated by the directional arrow present in the photograph below:
Reinhardt was aiming for my rear windshield but due to windage from the west that evening, Reinhardt's BB traveled off course, penetrating my left-hand side view mirror. The surveillance video indicates that less than 30 seconds after Gus Reinhardt fired his CO2 powered BB shot, an SUV headed westbound on Monterey Street towards San Jose Blvd. cruised by.
November 3, 2006 - The above damage was discovered. JSO dispatch was immediately contacted. JSO Officer, R. R. Rose (Badge #7708) responded. Officer Rose made his observation, then framed the incident as "Criminal Mischief". Officer Rose attempted to deconstruct my argument, supported by the surveillance, that the damage was in fact caused by a projectile, fired from a GUN via a trajectory aligned directly across the street from us. Examination of the mirror's shattered glass indicates a circular pattern to the breakage, indicative of a projectile. The mirror even shows a distinct projectile entry point, that was so obviously caused by a BB shot.
November 4, 2006 - In an effort to protect ourselves from a repeat attack by Gus Reinhardt's CO2 powered BB pistol, we built and positioned plywood barriers around our cars, embossed with Stars of David and the phrase "Never Again".
November 4, 2006 - Approximately 6:00pm - Gus Reinhardt and Brooke M. Berg contacted JSO officers to complain about our protective measures and our rights of religious expression - in order to prevent a repeat CO2 powered BB attack upon our home:
March 31, 2007 Update: Brooke M. Berg and her criminal accomplice, Augustus (Gus) Reinhardt finally move out of Dr. Sandler's rental property.
July 21, 2008 Update: Finally sold the house and got out of this insane neighborhood
filled with crazed rednecks, racists, White Knights of Georgia and last but not least,
My Crazy Neighbor - DEA Special Agent, Jack Lunsford, who is certain to renew his addiction centered conflict with the next victim.
