Felipe Santos and Terrance Williams disappeared a few months apart after being in contact with Deputy Steve Calkins of the Collier County Sheriff's Office.

Calkins was investigated by the FBI and FDLE. His accounts of his interactions with both men contradicted statements by eyewitnesses as well as his own taped conversations with colleagues.

In addition, Calkins failed a polygraph. Yet investigators found no probable cause to search his home and otherwise take him from person of interest to suspect. I am not sure the investigators did everything they could and this case seems to have been allowed to go dormant. These young men were taken from their families. They have been missing for 8 years and the sheriff's office seems to have back-burnered this case.

NEWS : Actor and director Tyler PERRY joins the search! THANK YOU SO MUCH Mr PERRY FOR EVERYTHING YOU'VE DONE!!! "We all should be outraged," Perry says, "This is the kind of stuff that would happen in the 60's and earlier where black people would disappear and just be disregarded and never heard from again. And there is somebody that knows something about it…He has children that miss him. This is his mother who misses and love him. Felipe Santos, he has family and is from Mexico. And I just think it’s unfair. I just want to see justice be done and be served here. We got to do something to he help her.”

 

 

Felipe Santos et Terrance Williams ont disparu à plusieurs mois d'intervalle juste après avoir été contrôlés et être montés à bord du véhicule de Steve Calkins, un policier du commissariat de Collier County en Floride.

Le FBI et les affaires internes ont ouvert une enquête. Les déclarations de ce policier concernant sa rencontre avec les victimes et les faits qui s'en sont suivis ont été contredites : 1)par des témoins  2)par les enregistrements de ses discussions avec ses collègues (passées depuis la radio à bord de son véhicule) 3)par un echec du policier à un test polygraphe (detecteur de mensonge)

Des prelevements ont été finalement effectués dans la voiture du policier. Le rapport indique que la voiture était d'une propreté éclatante. Sa maison n'a pas été fouillée. Même si ses mensonges durant les interrogatoires ont conduit à son licenciement des forces de police, les autorités refusent de considérer Calkins comme un suspect. 

Il est certain que les autorités n'ont pas fait tout leur possible pour conduire cette enquête. Cela fait 8 ans que Felipe Santos et Terrance Williams ont disparu l'un après l'autre après être montés dans la voiture de fonction de Calkins.  Aidez nous à les retrouver! 

DERNIERES NOUVELLES : L'acteur et Producteur américain Tyler Perry nous rejoint !

  Dans une apparition sur MSNBC, il déclare : "Nous devrions tous être révoltés. C'est le genre de choses qui pouvaient arriver dans les années 60 et avant, à l'époque ou les noirs pouvaient disparaître du jour au lendemain sans que les autorités ne réagissent. Il y a quelqu'un qui sait quelque chose. Terrance a des enfants et une mère qui veulent des réponses. Felipe Santos qui est un émigré mexicain a aussi une famille. Je trouve cela injuste. Il faut que la justice fasse son travail. On doit faire quelque chose."

      Hello!

      I've started the petition "Barack Obama and Aaron Schock and U.S. Senate: Eradicate US Army Toxic Leadership" and need your help to get it off the ground.

      Will you take 30 seconds to sign it right now? Here's the link:

      http://www.change.org/petitions/barack-obama-and-aaron-schock-and-u-s-senate-eradicate-us-army-toxic-leadership

      Here's why it's important:

      To Whom It May Concern,

      I was the immediate supervisor for SPC Annzala Pitt at C.Co 225 BSB. In the time that SPC Pitt was part of my squad she encountered numerous difficulties which I believe were entirely due to being mistreated by her senior leadership. When SPC Pitt arrived at 225 BSB she had a medical situation that required attention prior to her deployment to Iraq. When she voiced her concerns to 1LT Riglick not only were her concerns dismissed but her private health information was erroneously released to multiple parties. SPC Pitt filed a complaint for the HIPPA violation against the offending party, 1LT Riglick. A few months later 1LT Riglick was assigned to C.Co as our Platoon Leader. This is undoubtedly the situation that caused SPC Pitt to be labeled as a problem soldier by C.Co leadership. SPC Pitt was not protected from reprisal and was treated badly for the duration of her time with C.Co 225 BSB.

      The result of filing her HIPPA complaint against 1LT Riglick was having a stigma placed on her by the very leadership that was supposed to be protecting her. She endured rumors, attacks on her character, and even attempts at discrediting her intellectual capacities. She was even accused of having inappropriate relationships with multiple senior Non-Commissioned Officers by our Platoon Leader 1LT Riglick. SPC Pitt continuously sought only to do her job as a mental health specialist and as her first line supervisor I pushed for her to be moved from the company to the Troop Medical Clinic. When SPC Pitt was sent to the Troop Medical Clinic to preform her duties as a mental health specialist C.Co leadership made sure to let the incoming social worker know what their impression of her was. SPC Pitt then worked with Major Ball, who had already been told she was a problem soldier, and was subsequently treated horribly to include having to undergo a mental health evaluation without provocation.

      SPC Pitt requested on numerous occasions to be moved from C.Co 225 BSB to another company, battalion, or division to get out from underneath the stigma placed on her. These requests were heard by our Company Commander, 1SG, Platoon Leader, Platoon Sergeant, Command Sergeant Major, and even Division Command team but nothing was done. Instead of helping the soldier 1LT Riglick and Major Ball ordered me to counsel her for their perceived insubordination. When I disagreed with these orders it was made clear that my military career was also in jeopardy. I was ordered by 1LT Riglick to counsel SPC Pitt for not properly using her chain of command to which, I informed the command that she had done exactly what procedures are outlined. The result of my not counseling her for this was to have my MEDPROS status changed to non-deployable by 1LT Riglick. This retaliation against me for defending SPC Pitt would have ended my career if I had not already been found deployable and fit for duty by the Medical Review Board in 2008.

      Despite her outburst which finally concluded her time in C.Co I would still recommend that she be retained by the United States Army. SPC Pitt endured being mistreated for months and still maintained a positive attitude. Her intellectual prowess combined with her willingness to work make her a viable asset. I believe that if SPC Pitt had been able to move to another command away from the toxic leadership of C.Co 225 BSB her military career would have flourished.
