When Are Charges Going To Be Filed?

Action News Jax (LINK) Reported a story on Monday about a Starke Police officer receiving double pay from a company and the city at the same time. Working for a company while off duty is very legal, the problem is: you can’t claim you’re working for both places at the same time.

The contract between the Vystar Credit Union and the Starke Police Department states officers are paid $25 per hour for security, and are “performing off-duty secondary employment.”

It says if the officers are pulled away for a call they “will not be compensated by Vystar,” providing a clear distinction between on and off-duty status.

A time card entry for police Chief Jeff Johnson, who’s running for re-election next week, shows on October 18, 2016, he clocked in at Vystar before 9 a.m., and he would clock out after 5 p.m.

But a duplicate entry for Johnson’s time sheet with the city states he was on duty from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. that same day.

Records obtained by Action News Jax show Johnson allegedly did this four more times from October to December of last year.

We asked Attorney and Magistrate Rick Schutte is there any laws being broken. Schutte said: Yes, it called stealing. Somebody got deceived by the looks of the contract.

If you are Sick, You Can’t afford it. Florida Medical Marijuana

After looking into the cost of medical marijuana for people who qualify and would benefit from it, the thought that runs through our head is: “If you’re sick, you can’t afford it.” Here’s what we found out about the whole 9-yards.

Buying medical marijuana is strictly a cash business. No insurance company will cover the cost and they don’t have to because cannabis is still prohibited at a Federal level. The cost is very high (no pun intended) to obtain a medical marijuana card, or MMJ card.

Here’s how it basically works:

You obtain an appointment to see a doctor who can make a recommendation for you to get a MMJ card. The Average Cost to visit a Certified Prescribing Doctor is $175-$299 for the initial visit and $100-$250 for the follow up visit. Under Florida law patients must be seen at minimum of once every 210 days, or at least once every 30 weeks. But a doctor can shorten the life of you’re card. Which means you see them more times a year.

If the doctor agrees that you qualify for a MMJ card, then you apply at the Compassionate Use Registry. All applications must be submitted to the Office of Compassionate Use and must include a full-face, passport-type color photograph taken within 90 day, and a registration fee of $75. Compassionate Use Registry identification cards remain active for one year.

Slippery Slope of the Law

Newtons 3rd law says: “for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”

I’m talking about Civil Rights and what happens when you screw with them.

What is a “Civil Right?” To put it simply: it’s something about yourself you can’t change. Like: race, sex, age, disability or national origin.

This question was asked to me and it made me think “people have screwed things up again.” So I’ll ask it to you and see what you think.

By a person being able to change their sex “medically”, (meaning man to woman, vise versa and non-binary) does this neutralize the civil right of sex? Seeing a civil right means something you can’t change.

The civil right of sex means you cannot discriminate a person based on their sex. In other words: everybody get’s treated the same.
