Extortion plot details turned over to FDLE attorney James Martin
by Timothy Charles Holmseth on August 31, 2015 at 10:30 P.M.
An organized criminal judicial extortion operation that blackmails government officials and subverts the legal process has been identified and exposed in Florida.
The implications may be international.
Evidence detailing the elaborate scheme, and how it was apparently used to blackmail the States Attorneys Office in Florida’s First Judicial Circuit, has been turned over to Attorney James Martin at the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE).
Evidence indicates the extortion scheme was used to blackmail States Attorney Jason English and/or other attorneys in the States Attorneys Office into accepting a ‘Deferred Prosecution’ deal for felony defendant Thomas Norman Olsen, 23, Milton, Florida.
Olsen was booked on February 4, 2015, and charged with three felonies including theft of a firearm. However, his serious situation soon changed into something that he joked about as he mocked the judicial system and vowed to continue his menacing behavior.
On March 26, 2015, Olsen boasted in a press release published on www.radionewz.net that an attorney, that was not legally representing him, had obtained a “special favor” from the prosecutor on his behalf called ‘Deferred Prosecution’.
However, a prior press release made by Olsen on February 22, 2015, tells a much different story about what was going on behind the scenes. It reveals he was deeply involved in an extortion scheme against officials in Santa Rosa County using threats of a lawsuit involving abuse of prisoners by correctional officers.
But – there is unique twist to the published threats of a lawsuit.
The reason the published threats of a lawsuit rises to the level of criminal extortion is because Olsen was threatening a lawsuit against Santa Rosa County on behalf of unknown and/or un-disclosed third parties – not himself.
Olsen himself had no Cause of Action – but was publishing that Santa Rosa County was going to be sued for abuse after his arraignment.
There was no lawsuit.
It was a blackmail scheme that involves a Web underground that specializes in extortion through online threats, intimidation, harrassment, stalking, and worse.
The ability to run the blackmail scheme involves a model for extortion that uses multiple Twitter accounts in conjunction with an anonymous website on an off-shore Web server.
The Twitter and website are the public information delivery system critical to the extortion scheme.
HOW THE BLACKMAIL SCHEME WORKS
The FIRST step is for the extortionists to publish threats online that would cause great fear to the intended target. The published threats may include true events or completely fabricated lies (in this instance the target was Santa Rosa County). The threats may warn of impending disaster or promised doom.
The SECOND step is to contact the target (this is sometimes done by an attorney) and casually mention what is appearing online; note the unsightliness of it all; and suggest perhaps something could be worked out to make it all go away.
Other times the target is contacted by anonymous emails or direct messages via Twitter. The target is provided links to videos or photos or other media that convey the threat.
The THIRD step is – if the extortionists succeed – is for the extortionists to get what they want. This might be having criminal charges dropped against a dangerous criminal, or an active criminal investigation halted. It might be the illegal removal of records from a public records database, or a website being taken down. It may result in murders going unsolved; evidence vanishing; missing children remaining missing; child pornography crimes not being investigated.
BLACKMAIL OF SANTA ROSA COUNTY, FLORIDA
On February 22, 2015, Thomas Norman Olsen, 23, Milton, Florida publically announced on Twitter that a lawsuit was going to be filed against Santa Rosa County for prisoner abuse. He also implied that police in Santa Rosa and Escambia counties would be brought into the fray.
Olsen announced in a series of tweets:
|“Yes, this is a scandal. Yes, I plan on taking all this public. And yes, I have hard evidence WITH dozens of witnesses to the brutality”.
“Again, more information on all this will be released in my statement after my arraignment on Thursday”.
“And the Correctional Officers at Santa Rosa County jail apparently have a huge history of misconduct and brutality, beating inmates”.
“Let me tell you, when it comes to Police in Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties, they’re far from ethical. Known by anyone who lives here”.
“I will explain the details of said lawsuit against SRC in the statement I plan on releasing after my arraignment on Thursday”.
The tweets were then re-published on a website located at www.radionewz.net.
Olsen’s announcement made it clear that Santa Rosa County was going to be sued with hard evidence and dozens of witnesses to support the claims.
However – Olsen never actually stated that HE was/is the victim.
That is because Olsen was/is NOT a victim.
That means Olsen had no legal Cause of Action upon which to file a lawsuit against Santa Rosa County.
Therefore, at the very most, Olsen was professing to KNOW about a lawsuit that was going to be filed against Santa Rosa County.
The aforementioned fact-pattern becomes a key element to proving it was a blackmail scheme, because Olsen claimed he KNEW bout a pending lawsuit.
However – there is NO known record of any such complaints or lawsuit ever being filed.
Therefore – just exactly where Olsen was getting his information is something he would now have to explain to law enforcement.
Olsen was represented by a criminal defense attorney on his felony charges, and that attorney is not known to have filed any lawsuit, or filed any formal complaint on behalf of Olsen regarding abuse or police misconduct of any kind.
Olsen made it clear that somebody had information about prisoner abuse and police misconduct that was scandalous and a lawsuit was forthcoming.
Therein lies clues to the criminal extortion and who is behind it.
Olsen began making announcements using the information delivery system to announce the involvement of another attorney – a civil attorney – known only to legally represent the website www.radionewz.net.
Note: The name of REDACTED is known to the FBI, FDLE, and Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi
Olsen stated in a press release on March 26, 2015:
“This is an update on my case. One that I’m sure everyone will be happy with (except Murt of course).
Had a meeting with my lawyer this morning to get an update on what was going on. The prosecutor HAS accepted the deal put forth by my lawyer and the assistant prosecutor. This is the first time I will be able to go into full detail on what my deal entails. The prosecutor also stated that this WILL be settled before my next court date, which means no more court for me. Keep in mind, REDACTED was HUGE in securing me this deal. Call it a personal favor for her from the State Attorney for my circuit.
The deal is this. Deferred Prosecution. This is kind of like probation but not really. It’s extremely rare in my county that this sort of deal is offered or even considered. Basically if I keep my nose clean (no arrests, piss tests once a month, complete community service, etc…) then at the end of the time frame of the deferred prosecution (in this case it’s 1 year) ALL charges against me will be dismissed and my record will remain clean.
Pity, some thought that I was finally going to be put in jail or have something done to me by the legal system. Well, think again haters. I’m free and will remain free. And I’ll remain on the internet and remain out of jail to make sure I’m here to continue putting fuckers in check”.
The involvement of the third attorney in the plea bargain process – the civil attorney – is something that would need to be explained to the FDLE by the Office of States Attorney William Eddins.
And other questions arise.
Has there been abuse of prisoners by correctional officers or police in Florida’s First Circuit that has subjected the States Attorney office to blackmail and extortion?
Has the States Attorneys Office or any other law enforcement in Florida’s First Circuit engaged in misconduct or behavior that has exposed the county to blackmail and extortion at any given time?
How many cases have been affected by this blackmail operation?
Has this blackmail operation been used to suppress law enforcement in active missing child cases across the United States and abroad?
Sources tell Write Into Action the FBI is actively reviewing the names of all the missing children regulalry focused on by the anonymous authors of http://www.radionewz.net and http://www.murtwitnessonelive.com
