S.C. parolee faces hefty charges after high-speed chase


Stand-off ended by SWAT


By ANGELA M. CASTELUCCI
Staff writer
When Fred Eugene
Jenkins II said he would
like to address the events
which led to his arrest and
subsequent first appearance
hearing Tuesday morning,


Fred Eugene Jenkins
II, 32, appeared
before County Judge
Buddy Murphy Tuesday
morning.


Judge Stephen "Buddy"
Murphy's response was
swift and to the point:
"Speak at your own peril.
Talk to your lawyer first."
After a quick word with
his court-appointed public
defender, Jenkins declined
to make further comment.
The 32-year-old South
Carolina man, was ordered
held without bond on a
list of charges that include
aggravated assault on a
law enforcement officer,
high speed fleeing and
eluding,: grand theft auto,
resisting with violence and
possession of a firearm by a
convicted felon.
In handing down the
ruling,i Murphy stated, "I
have te-read the probable
cause" affidavit and find
that you are a threat to
the community...you
threatened violence against
officers and you qualify for
prison re-offender status.
I am ordering you held
x% without bond."
Dining the hearing, which
took place Tuesday morning
at the Ta'lor County
Courthouse, Murphy asked
Jenkins if he intended to
hire an attorney.
"Yes, I do. I mean, I need
to talk to my mom and step-
dad first. Go ahead and
appoint one now," Jenkins
replied.
When asked about his


An eight-hour stand-off between suspect Fred E. Jenkins II and local law enforcement started in the
early hours of the morning Monday. Temperatures hovered around 30 degrees throughout the long
drama which took place at an apartment located behind the former auction house that stands along,
the east side of U.S. 19 South. Jenkins surrendered around 9 a.m. after a SWAT team deployed a
gas grenade into his home. (Photos by Angela M. Castelucci)


finances, Jenkins stated he
earned $14 an hour, bringing
home approximately $510
weekly.
"But I will not be making
that now while I'm here," he
said.
As for property, Jenkins
said he owned two and
one-half acres of land (not
stating where the land was
located) and estimated its
value at $4,000.
"Based on this
information, I am going to


appoint a public defender
for the purpose of first
appearance .only," Murphy
said.
The even-toned exchange
between Jenkins and the
judge was far removed from
the scene 24 hours earlier
when the South Carolina
parolee faced an armed
SWAT unit at his apartment
on Highway 19 South.
The tense eight-hour
standoff was the final act
in a string of illegal crimes


allegedly committed by
Jenkins in a 48-hour period.
The case began when the
Perry Police Department
(PPD) received a report
Sunday night, Nov. 25, of
a truck being stolen from a
home located on Marshall
Drive (off Ash Street).
, The owner, who works
nights, discovered his 2004
Ford truck was missing
aroiind 11 p.m.
A BOLO (be on the look
out) was issued to all law


enforcement officers on
duty.
Approximately 45
minutes later, Taylor
County Sheriff's Office
(TCSO) Sgt. Buddy Lee
located the vehicle on
Highway 19. PPD Sgt.
Lin Gray responded to the
area to offer backup as Lee
sought to initiate a traffic
stop on the truck.
Jenkins failed to stop for

The Magic Markers ForTheir Signs?"


Letters to the Editor


Why is everyone talking


about U.N. Agenda 21?


Dear Editor:
Why is everyone talking
about UN Agenda 21?.
UN Agenda 21/
Sustainable Development is
the action plan to inventory
and control all land, all
water, all minerals, all
plants, all animals, all
construction, all means of
production, all information,
all energy and all human
beings in the world.
Inventory and control.
Have you wondered where
these terms "sustainability"
and "smart growth" and
"high density urban mixed-
use development" came
from? Doesn't it seem like
about 10 years ago you'd
never heard of them and
now everything seems to
include these concepts? Is
that just a coincidence? That
every town and county and
state and nation in the world
would be changing their
land use/planning codes and
government policies to align
themselves with...what?
Far from being a
"conspiracy theory" or a
"tin-foil hat" fantasy, this
is an actual United Nations
plan, signed onto in 1992
by President George HW
Bush along with 178 other
world leaders. The UN
called it Agenda 21 because
it is the Agenda for the 21st
century. According to UN
Secretary Gelieral Maurice
Strong, the "affluent
middle-class American
lifestyle is unsustainable."
That includes single
family homes, private


Taco


vehicles, appliances, air-
conditioning, dams, farming
and meat-eating. They are a
threat to the planet.
This might sound like a
silly plan that doesn't affect
you. But look around. This
economic collapse is UN
Agenda 21. You'll hear that
this plan is non-binding, that
it's a dusty old-plan with no
teeth. That is a lie. In fact
over the last 20 years this
plan has been implemented
all over the United States.
It's called Sustainable
Development. The 3 E's:
ecology, economy, equity.
After George Bush signed
it in 1992, it was brought
back to the US by President
Clinton (1993) when he
created the President's
Council on Sustainable
Development for the sole
purpose of getting it into
every city, county and state
in the US through federal
rules, regulations and
grants. This is a global plan
but is implemented locally.
You'll see it in our regional
plans. and in our Taylor
County Vision 2060 plan.
They call for stack and pack
housing, restricted mobility
and regional government.
Domestic surveillance,
smart meters, GMO's,
loss of freedom--all UN
Agenda 21/Sustainable
Development. You are
losing your rights..
What's wrong with
sustainable development?
How could something
that sounds so good be
bad? Who wouldn't want

to be sustainable? Vibrant?
Walkable? Bikeable?
Green? These buzz words
were designed to make
you think that you're doing
something good for the
planet. This is the biggest
public relations scam in the
history of the world.
Sustainable.Development
was created and defined by
the United Nations in 1987.
Clinton began to implement
it in the US in 1993 by giving
the American Planning
Association a multi-million
dollar grant to write a land
use legislative blueprint
for every municipality
in the US.. It is called
Growing Smart Legislative
Guidebook with Model
Statutes for Planning and
the Management of Change.
This was completed in 2002
and is being used to train
planners in every university,
college and government
planning office in the nation.
Growing Smart is Smart
.Growth. Growing Smart is
in our planning department
and its principles are in our
city and county plan. Right
now.
Beside this is The Local
Agenda 21 Planning Guide
put out by ICLEI and the
United Nations. Groups like
the National Association of
Counties and the Florida
Association of Counties
are, promoting Agenda21/
Sustainable Development.
Our county is continuing to
fund these groups. Urban
areas are being consolidated
and rural areas are gradually
being emptied of people
through restrictive land use
policies, gasoline costs,
vehicle miles traveled,
taxes, loss of rural road
maintenance, closure of
rural schools, closure of
rural post offices, water
well monitoring, smart
meters and regionalization
pressures.
Smart Growth,
livable communities
and comprehensive/
vision plans are not just
the preferred building
style for UN Agenda 21/
Sustainable Development;
it is the ideology. Moving
people into centralized
urban areas in high density
housing creates the perfect
opportunity for domestic
surveillance.
This ideology is being
used as the justification to
radically change every city
in the United States and to
impose regulations dictated
by unelected regional

I'll level with you, I was
supposed to write about the
election in this article, but
I'm writing this before the
election and by the time this
prints the election will have
already occurred, so, as
you can probably tell, that
would be an excruciatifigly
awkward topic to write
about considering the time
difference and all that jazz
(by "all that jazz," I mean
political viewpoints that
can lead to some...let's say
"entertaining" situations).
I understand that the
Electoral College may
not be the most exciting
of topics (and I entirely
understand and won't be
offended at all if you jump to
the summary at the bottom,
or entirely ignore this piece
even, though I would rather
you not do that to be quite
honest--don't want my work
to be for naught), but it's
ridiculously important, so I
feel I should get what it is
out there,.but, for your sake
I'll make this as interesting
as possible. I'm just going
to dive headfirst into this
one.
As the Merriam-Webster
dictionary defines it, the
Electoral College is "a body
of electors; especially : one
that elects the president and
vice president of the United
States."


In layman's terms, you
vote, that vote is then sent
to a fellow known as an
"elector" and then this guy
(or gal) casts the vote that
actually matters (which is
the electoral vote) and so
do the rest of the "electors."

controversial, the electors

take all" system for what
president gets the electoral
points from a given state).
And this vote is the one that
decides the president, not
the popular vote (as would,
you know, make sense).
Now, I admit, I was no
fan of President Bush, but I
understand that many of you
were, and anyway, that's not
what this article is about,
so I will stay as neutral
as possible here. So, here
goes, (fingers are crossed on
being able to stay unbiased
here) Bush shouldn't
have been president, Al
Gore should, from any
reasonable perspective, won
that election. He actually
won the popular vote, so
the majority of voting
Americans wanted him
as our president, yet for a
few reasons (that shall be
explaineddin a wee bit), he
lost the Electoral College,
this means that we got a
president that the majority of
Americans did not support.
I don't know about you, but
to me at least that seems a
tad bit wrong (and I would
believe this regardless of
who this process had gipped
out of a presidency), it
seems that the popular vote.

Okay, I stated that I'd

part, the places he lost, he

summation of everything

leap to here).
The Electoral College
is a pretty horrid way of

If I had a dollar
There is a song I remember from childhood
that goes like this: If I had a dollar, this is
what I'd do. I'd buy up all the pretties and give
them all to you." Well, that was then and this
is now, and we all know the dollar is borderline
poverty. It just won't buy what it used to buy.
When I was growing up, way back then as
my grandchildren like to say, we could take a
dollar to the movie theatre, see the movie, buy
a soda and a bag of popcorn and have enough
to get a candy bar on the way home. I found
out recently that a movie night out with the
kids is expensive! It will take a chunk out of a
$50 bill without a blink of the eye. When you
add the cost of buying gas for the trip out-of-
town and the snack, you can part company
with $100 for just one night of fun.
Sounds like I'm complaining...yep I am! I am
all for good old American free enterprise, but
I sure wish it didn't come with such a high
price tag.
Being the thrifty Gramma that I am, I devised
a plan to teach my young ones the value of
the dollar. One of the first things I teach them
is the word "sale." I tell them that is always
the special stuff and that not everyone has
the privilege of buying it. I tell them it makes
them special just to get to buy it. The plan is
working out very well.
According to Megan, our 21-year-old
granddaughter, she goes straight to the sale
rack, passing the high-priced stuff without so
much as a glance in its direction. I believe I
taught her right. She did break down and go
to the movie to see the latest Twilight saga last
week. She probably had the extra money from
hitting all the sales. Plus she informed me she
had discovered how to shop online. Now she
gets the sales and saves on gas. She makes
me proud!
We took our 15-year-old granddaughter Tori
grocery shopping last Friday. She loves to
cook. She had a blast comparing the price of
food. Several times she lingered over the items
comparing the cost with the value. She made
good choices and figured the prices right along
with me. At the check-out she had the total
almost on-the-penny.
Living in today's economy is very expensive. If
things do not change it will be more expensive
by the time these teenagers become adults.
Most of them have never lived with a lack of
any kind. If we don't teach them to value the
money they earn by spending wisely, we are
doing an injustice to them.
In a world that has gone totally spend crazy,
and I might add that includes our government,
we need to sound the alarm by guiding our
next generation toward a thriftier existence.
We need to convince them name brands do
not necessarily mean better quality. We also
need to convince them that happiness is
not dependent on the number of things we
possess.
There is not a worthier verse in the Bible
than Proverbs 22:7 that declares...the
borrower is servant to the lender. Remember
God promises us food, shelter and clothing.
I've just about convinced them this promise
doesn't include a $500 bill for a cell phone
that is too complicated to enjoy. They are
searching the scripture in the hope that I am
wrong about this one!

FWC investigation involves

21 individuals, 200 violations


Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) and U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service law
enforcement officers
completed a comprehensive
investigation Nov. 14 that
included more than 200
criminal violations by 21
individuals in Orange, Lake,
Osceola, Polk and St. Lucie
counties.
The 22-month operation
targeted individuals who
illegally bought fish and
wildlife products in Florida
and shipped them out
of state to be sold to the
public.
"The suspects were
ultimately working together
in a criminal conspiracy,"
said Maj. Curtis Brown, head
of FWC's Investigations
section.
Officers determined
the suspects were buying
products from poachers and
unlicensed individuals and


shipping them to markets
out of state. Those out-of-
state markets are still being
investigated by the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service.
"This was a large-scale
illegal poaching operation
with serious implications for
the environment, economy
and public health," Brown
said.
The suspects made
one or two trips a month,
transporting 2,000 to 3,000
pounds of product each trip
to their markets.
"They placed orders that
included one for 900 pounds
of poached white-tailed deer
and another for 500 pounds
of illegal snook," Brown
said.
To date, the operation has
identified 21 suspects. The
criminal charges include
147 misdemeanor violations
and 75 felony violations.
Ten suspects were arrested
and taken to local county


jails; the rest were issued
notices to appear.
Undercover officers
successfully infiltrated the
illegal operations and were
able to gather sufficient
evidence of the crimes. The
species involved include
grouper, snapper, trout,
redfish, snook, bass, bream,
catfish, deer, turkey, ducks
and alligator.
"Some of those are
restricted species," Brown
said.
"Over-harvesting, taking
them out of season or taking
them by illegal methods
harms the resource,
undermining conservation
efforts."
In addition to the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service,
the FWC worked with
partner organizations
including the National Wild
Turkey Federation, Humane
Society of the United States
and Ducks Unlimited.

A-10 Taco Times November28, 2012


MMMMMMw 001 1 1 1f I
A SWAT member steps into a patch of sunlight as his unit continues negotiations with Frank E. Jenkins II, who barricaded
himself inside his apartment. Initial contact was maintained via cell phone and later discussions could be heard from what
sounded like outside speakers.


Suspect served 12 years in South



Carolina prison for armed robbery


SWAT
Continued from page 1
the officers and, instead,
attempted to flee, driving at
slow speeds through several
neighborhoods along Julia,
Jefferson and Ash streets.
"When he got back on
U.S. Highway 19 South,
he picked up speed, fleeing
through town at speeds close
to 70 miles per hour," PPD
Capt. Jamie Cruse said.
The pursuit continued
into the county with officers
and deputies on his trail as
he turned onto Beach Road.
"He drove down Beach
Road, all the way to Hodges
Park, at speeds that ranged
up to 100 miles per hour,"
TCSO Capt. Ron Rice said.


"He turned around at
Hodges Park, damaging
several posts in the parking
lot. He started fleeing back
up .Beach Road. A sheriff's
office unit managed to turn
around ahead of him and
Jenkins-driving about 70
miles per hour-rammed
the patrol car off the road
and into a power pole,
which snapped.
"The pursuit continued
northbound on Beach Road.
Officers deployed spike
strips, which flattened a
couple of the truck's tires.
He just kept running on
rims up to the area by his
apartment (on U.S. 19).
He abandoned the truck
along the highway between
the Servilla Motel and his


apartment. We saw him run
into his apartment where
he, barricaded himself. He
indicated he had weapons
and threatened to harm law
.enforcement officers," Rice
said.
"We negotiated with him
on his cell phone in excess of
two hours and didn't make
any headway. I contacted
the sheriff and he gave me
the go ahead to request the
Leon County SWAT team to
come in. When they arrived,
they took over negotiations,"
Rice said.
After several more
fruitless hours of talks--
during which the team
surrounded the apartment
Jenkins was renting-the
call was made to seek a
quick end to the standoff.
"When negotiations
fizzled, SWAT deployed
a gas grenade into the
apartment and Jenkins
surrendered shortly
thereafter," Rice said.
Jenkins was taken into
custody around 9 a.m.
Monday and processed at
the Taylor County Jail.
Two shotguns were seized
from inside the apartment.
"He was alone in there-


no one else was in the
apartment with him," Rice
noted.
Jenkins' arrest was
just five days shy of the
one-year anniversary of
his release from a South
Carolina prison where he
had served 12 years for a
range of offenses, including
armed robbery.
Rice said the suspect
had only been living
in Taylor County for
approximately two
months, having relocated
here with his mother and
stepfather to work on the
bridge construction project
underway on Highway 98
West.
"Other charges are
pending the completion
of our investigation," Rice
added.
The deputy who was
in the patrol car that
Jenkins rammed, Mark
Hershberger, was "checked
out and is fine. But the crash
totaled the patrol car," Rice
said.
Officers assisting with the
case included Rice, Cruse,
Gray, Hershberger, Lee,
Deputy Gregg Gulbrandsen,
Deputy Thomas Gunter,


Capt. Marty Nowlin,
Deputy Marty Tompkins,
Ptl. Chuck Geyer and Ptl.
Brian Curry.
"We would like to
thank the Leon County
Sheriff's Office for their
assistance. Everyone did an
awesome job throughout,"
Rice said.


'Secure


your


vehicles'

BURGLARIES
Continued from page 1
told officers there were
several items in the truck
that he had no knowledge of
how they got there.
"The items in the truck
turned out to be stolen
and were linked to a series
of vehicle burglaries in
Madison County that
happened just over the
county line on U.S.
Highway 19,North. We have
returned all of the items but
one to theirowners. We still
have one item that we have
not been able to find out
who it belongs to...if you
are missing any items from
your vehicle, call the police
department and give us a
description and we'll make
sure it is returned," Cruse
said.
He encouraged residents
throughout the city and
county to secure their
vehicles at nights.
"We: may live in a small
town, but we are not
immune to crimes like this
happening," Cruse said.


Work on Paul Poppell

Road to begin in January


PAVING
Continued from page 1
and $918,000 for South Red
Padgett Road (from: East
Red Padgett Road to U.S.
19).
"Staff expects that
there will be a good
chance that the monies
remaining from this original
reimbursement agreement
amount after allocating for
survey, geotechnical and
construction administration
expenses will be insufficient
to complete the entire
project as proposed without
additional funding from
FDOT," Dudley said.
He added that staff has


had preliminary discussions
with FDOT regarding
additional funding under
its Construction and
Maintenance Program
that may offset the cost
of signage and pavement
marking.
SBoth the Holt Road and
Red Padgett Road project
bids will be opened at the
commission's meeting on
Jan. 7, 2013.
Work on another SCRAP
project, Paul Poppell Road,
is expected to begin in
January. Dudley said the
project start date was pushed
back to avoid starts and
stops around the holiday
season.
