35699 Closing Letter

39147 Closing letter

Dear Piya,

Given the time which has elapsed on this matter, should there be some official determination by the PAC regarding a non-responsive Public Body? Having reviewed the emails, it shows the Public Body was instructed to contact your office, but appears to have ignored that request.

I need some final resolution from the PAC as my next recourse is litigation.

I look forward to your response.

Thank you,

Mark McCoy

Dear Piya,

Following up on our conversation on 2/4/16, where you confirmed no response from Sean Murley regarding the above referenced Request for Review, as no response has been received to-date (2/10/16), and the PAC has reached out to Mr. Murley, may I have an official status/response from the PAC regarding this matter as it appears the next recourse will need to be through the courts.

I would just like to know if there has been any response from either public body, St. Clair County and /or St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department, with respect to the records requested, the response received, the corresponding FOIA Officer(s) for the respective Public Bodies, and the final disposition from the PAC.

Thank you again.

Hello, Mary Jo.
I sent an email yesterday addressing this very request and outlining in detail a number of points which constitute an appeal

Is this recent reply from the PAC in response to my email of 1/19/16, or from the earlier response from Mr. Murley?

For your reference, the substantive portion of my email of 1/19/16 follows:

This letter is in response to Mr. Murley’s reply below relating to 2 requests made to the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department. I have never received a reply from the FOIA Officer for that public body, the St.
Clair County Sheriff’s Department.

I submitted a similar request to the St. Clair County State’s Attorney, which was satisfied. However, different public bodies do not necessarily possess the same records, which is why a request was made to each for copies of records in their respective possession.

Mr. Murley, the FOIA officer for the St. Clair County State’s Attorney’s Office, replied (see below) to what I believe to be my request to the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department.

To-date, I have not received a reply from the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department. I do not believe Mr. Murley is the FOIA Officer for the St.
Clair County Sheriff’s Department, since I was directed by Major Thomas Knapp to send requests to his attention. Any response by Mr. Murley with respect to the requests outlined below are essentially unresponsive since the party responsible for the request is Major Thomas Knapp.

Furthermore, Mr. Murley states that certain records are exempt for disclosure as part of a pending prosecution, but does not cite the specific provision of the Act specifying which privacy exception is being invoked. It is also my understanding that subsequent to my initial request and Mr. Murley’s response, this case has been settled by way of a plea negotiation and order of the Court, thereby rendering any invocation of privacy pursuant to pending prosecution/investigation, moot.

Case 15OV0001966 is listed as closed on the Circuit Clerk’s website Case 14OV0004256 is listed as closed on the Circuit Clerk’s website Case 15OV0004474 is listed as Defendant having been sentenced and pending financial time payments on the Circuit Clerk’s website, which would indicate the conclusion of any investigation and/or prosecution.

For sake of clarity, I would like this request for review to be revisited by the PAC for a determination on the issues raised above, and to receive a reply, either complying with, or denying, the request made to the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department.

  • Government is not the standard by which our liberty is measured, it is the standard by which free people accept despotism.
  • Government is the last resort when tolerance, reason, and independence succeed.
  • Mirrors are the way by which we view our person, conscience is the way by which we view our spirit, society is the way by which we view our humanity, and government is the way by which we shut our eyes.
  • Laws are not rules to live by, they are rules to kill by.
  • The result is not a society of autonomous individuals freely associating peaceably, but a gaggle of morally emaciated nincompoops kowtowing to arbitrary authority in fear of being denied what is theirs by nature.
  • It can be said, laws are platitudes for a pusillanimous populace divested of their sovereignty through systemic indoctrination and sagacious statism.
  • There is not a more pitiful sight than a man who has forsaken his own humanity to pursue the fantasy of believing himself superior to other men by virtue of the office bestowed upon him.
  • In the search for truth, it is not most important that one arrives at the answer, but rather be capable of comprehending the question.
  • I was asked, “By what right do you disobey the laws of this State?” By what right?! By the right that I existed before the State; antecedent to an army of prehensile proselytizers of sagacious hegemony supplanting my reason with notions of allegiance, patriotism, and subjugation to men and a tatter of cloth. My first concept was that of self, of I. By that right, I need not disobey the State, but disavow it.
  • With respect to “society”, I am completely out of “control”. With respect to my “conscience”, I am the consummate “conformist”.
