Patricia Fairclough, Vice Mayor of Homestead, tried to have Doc Justice arrested for publishing articles based on public records. But her attempt woefully failed, because no crime was ever committed.

On April 27, 2020, True Homestead published an Article detailing the arrest and conviction record of Fairclough’s husband, Kelvin Staggers.

That same evening, Fairclough contacted police by telephone attempting to have Doc arrested for the alleged crime of stalking after they arrived on scene to take her report.

This makes it the tenth time city officers and officials have pursued Doc with bogus stalking claims, as he has closely documented.

The police did not file a report, but True Homestead obtained a copy of the Dispatch Communications, which contains some very interesting details.

The responding officer noted, “Compl advised a known male was disclosing false personal information. Subj did not make any direct threats to the Compl.”

What does Fairclough allege that was false in the article? That her husband was arrested for cocaine possession and lost his law enforcement certification, or that he was later arrested for sexual assault anal and vaginal?

Those allegations are both backed up by public records.

Is she alleging she did not claim she was single on her mortgage Mortgage Application? Did she not write a $2,000 campaign check to an inactive 501c she is the treasurer of? Did her and her husband not improperly make a claim of a Homestead Tax Exemptions on both their houses?

What did True Homestead publish that was false?

The fact is that True Homestead wrote about Fairclough as a public official, and she retaliated against Doc Justice’s rights to speech, press, and petition.

But back to the records obtained.

The earliest note in the communications stated, “REF SOCIAL MEDIA – PER 101.”  Colonel Scott Kennedy, unit 101, is second in command.

Chief Rolle is basically a meat puppet, whereas Colonel Kennedy actually runs the show.

So, Fairclough called Colonel Kennedy, using her leverage as Vice Mayor to receive preferential treatment. Must be nice to have friends in high places, but not even they can save her now.

The communications further stated, “PER 106 SEND 448.”  Lieutenant Randy Owens, the shift commander, is unit 106. 

But why would Owens be involved in this matter and why would he be directing specific officers to respond?

Furthermore, where are the phone logs, and rest of the records, that were requested but not produced?

It is clear Fairclough used her official position as leverage to obtain special treatment from the police, attempting to use them as a weapon to attack a known member of the press.

It is also clear that Homestead does not want to give True Homestead all of the records

Fairclough was thrusted into this miscalculation by her desire to hide her husband’s criminal history and/or to block further exposure of her own crimes and/or malfeasance.

Shame on her.

The only question left: does she resign attempting to avoid prosecution and/or shame, or does her pride make her stay and chance taking the fall?

Stay tuned we still have more coming, and the best is saved for last.

  1. Doc, I have no axe to/ grind except getting truth out and rooting out people who are media criminals. Why don’t you crawl back into your cave of rotten eggs and suffocate your diatribe on sulfur fumes? Homestead deserves more than what you are bringing and the world already has enough crap. Why are you doing this? Who pays you? Are you doing this just for fun to stir tidings up and destroy good people? Your time is up. Stop this crap.

Tell us what you think.
