Tallahassee Police Officer Michael Edward Dilmore (Badge #694) Attempts To Suppress “Public Information” Of His Home Address At Lawsuit Deposition
On Monday – July 15th, 2013, Officer Mike Dilmore Of The Tallahassee Police Department was being deposed by civil rights attorney Marie Mattox in a deposition in the federal case of Rob Brayshaw V. Annette Garrett. Annette Garrett was a full-time police officer of 25 years with the Tallahassee Police Department until her retirement of July 1st, 2013.
The deposition involved questioning by Attorney Marie Mattox to Annette Garrett (Prior Full-time Badge #640), Officer Mike Dilmore (Badge #694) and Sgt. George Creamer, Jr. (Badge #0236). The case involves Annette Garrett violating the civil rights of Rob Brayshaw by removing postings on Wikipedia.com that were posted on the Tallahassee Police Department’s Wikipedia Page For Open Discussions By The Public. It was admitted by Officer Annette Garrett that she did indeed remove postings from Wikipedia posted by Rob Brayshaw (After A Federal Order Existed From Federal Judge Richard Smoak Upholding The Constitutional Rights Of Rob Brayshaw for an Unconstitutional Law And False Arrest) At The Deposition. In Fact, It Was Sgt. George Creamer Jr. Who Was Working Tallahassee Police Internal Affairs that was searching the internet for negative opinions of Tallahassee Police Officers resulting in him contacting Officer Annette Garrett with their TPD emails together. George Creamer, Jr. contacted Officer Annette Garrett about 4 Am in the morning by TPD email in March 2011 which makes you wonder if they were having a “love affair” between two cops. It’s very strange that an Internal Affairs Supervisor would have this type of relation with an Officer in sending this such type of email. A Story was posted about this exchange in the Sunshine News regarding open government.

At The Deposition, Attorney Marie Mattox asked Officer Mike Dilmore about his home address and he stated that he had moved from his last known address. He said that he wouldn’t give his newer home address or the date of when he moved. This is while being a public servant still working as a police officer and paid by tax payer’s dollars. It’s still surprising that we have such police officers with badges working in florida that always seem to forget that they are public servants like Dilmore should be. Unfortunately, Florida has many police officers with badges that want a “secret society” like that of Nazi, Germany to help protect them from responsibility, accountability and transparency with the Tallahassee’s Blue Wall Of Silence in which Officer’s protect each other like the brotherhood of the mafia.
Attorney Marie Mattox asked why Officer Dilmore refused to give his home address and he stated that Citizen Rob Brayshaw had mailed some materials to his home in the past. It seems that he was referring to the federal court order mailed to him in which it was shown by Federal Judge Richard Smoak that Dilmore made a false arrest warrant based upon an unconstitutional law that never even legally applied. Or, it could have been the federal lawsuit that was mailed to Officer Mike Dilmore For Various Civil Rights Violations To Brayshaw. Rob Brayshaw had never threatened anyone including Officer Mike Dilmore or his family. He strictly wanted his public servant as paid by tax payer’s dollars to conform to the laws instead of making bogus police reports and lying about facts and circumstances to a case just to get an arrest warrant for Dilmore being a biased officer with a badge involved in selective prosecutions. People publish home addresses and write letters everyday in America which is one of the most fundamental rights that we have in this country. It’s unbelievable that the Tallahassee Police Department would hire such an individual that attempts to selectively hide his home address and other information from the public.
We are publishing his home address and home phone number in this article because we have every right to do so just because we want to. Cops should not just put every American in jail for publishing their home addresses and phone numbers with Tallahassee Police Department’s Selective Citizen Police Force. It Seems like after the Death of Rachel Hoffman and Forbes stating “Tallahassee is the 8th most dangerous city in America”, Cops have better things to do than chase citizens for republishing their home addresses from a phone book. It’s very unfortunate when citizens have a police officer paid as a public servant by tax payers that is both “power-hungry” and suffers from “little-man syndrome”. This is while abusing and misusing the power of their badge by making up bogus charges to put a law-abiding citizen in jail for publishing an address of public record. Then even after an Honorable Federal Court Order By Honorable Judge Richard Smoak, the officer then even refuses to disclose his home address that’s been numerously published on numerous mediums. They didn’t even put citizens in jail within the times of Nazi, Germany for publishing addresses that we are aware from public records.
While Officer Mike Dilmore might remove his home address and attempt to hide it with redactions from Mortgage Public Records With The Leon County’s Kangaroo Courthouse….It’s still public information!
Officer Mike Dilmore is an uninformed police officer while also being an officer that makes up false police reports that don’t apply for any legal arrest because of his “Dukes Of Hazzard” Roscoe P. Coltrane tendencies on a power-trip as a police officer. The Mortgage Records In Leon County Court regarding Officer Mike Dilmore have been redacted by him repeatedly thus wasting tax payer’s resources for attempting to seal and cover-up his public information available in numerous databases available to the public. Doesn’t seem like a public official or public servant paid by tax payer’s to us but that of a criminal that wants to cover up his crimes. These aren’t the types of cops that we need working for us in avoiding responsibility, accountability and transparency of our tax payers.
His Home Address is indeed public information regardless of some public records redacted just because he thinks he’s a high and almighty cop working among the Good Ol’ Boy Network like in Dukes Of Hazzard. His Home Address And Home Phone Number Of: 10887 Herford Chase, Tallahassee, Florida 32317-8624 and (850) 668-8316 is a matter of public information in numerous public directories like Whitepages.com, Zabasearch.com, etc. for numerous on-line phone books regardless of redaction making it public information! The mortgage records, home address and home phone number took only minutes to find regardless of Officer Mike Dilmore withholding the information during the questioning at deposition by that of Attorney Marie Mattox.
Officer Mike Dilmore’s own wife — Robyn Burke Dilmore is also a public official as a public servant as a school teacher as paid by the tax payers. She teaches the First Amendment in Applied Civics to 7th Graders at Deerlake Middle School. Her Home Address Should Be Published As Well For Being A Teacher To The Public! It Seems That Many Of Tallahassee’s Finest Need To Go Back To School To Learn The United States Constitution To Avoid Falsely Arresting Law Abiding Citizens on bad laws that are illegally misused. Leon County and Tallahassee has been surrounded by good ol’ boy wheeling and dealing for years in which numerous people have their family members and friends working in the state like a corrupt mafia regime. Tallahassee is the Capital Of Florida with Florida being the #1 State Of Public Corruption According to Integrity Florida.
Honorable Federal Judge Stated The Following Key Points In Brayshaw V. City Of Tallahassee (Regardless What Officer Mike Dilmore or Anyone Else Thinks):
The publication of truthful personal information about police officers is linked to the issue of police accountability through aiding in achieving service of process, researching criminal history of officers, organizing lawful pickets, and other peaceful and lawful forms of civic involvement that publicize the issue. Furthermore, [Brayshaw] as an individual is afforded no less rights than those afforded to the media, nor is the level of First Amendment scrutiny altered by the fact that the internet was the medium used by [Brayshaw].
Having found that the speech targeted by § 843.17 was protected by the 1st Amendment, the judge considered whether the statute was unconstitutional. Brayshaw v. City of Tallahassee, supra.
The Supreme Court has held that if a newspaper `publishes truthful information which it has lawfully obtained, punishment may lawfully be imposed, if at all, only when narrowly tailored to a state interest of the highest order.’ Florida Star v. B.J.F., [supra]. . . . [A] n individual should be treated no differently under the First Amendment than a newspaper. . . . . Thus, pursuant to Florida Star, § 843.17 can only pass constitutional muster if it is `narrowly tailored to a state interest of the highest order.’
The same information that Rob Brayshaw was falsely arrested for publishing about Officer Annette Garrett was reposted in a publicly-available public record by that Of Federal Judge Richard Smoak which clearly shows that Officer Mike Dilmore’s Arrest was malicious and false in which it never applied to any law requiring a threat that wouldn’t be protected by our First Amendment. The information posted by Federal Judge Richard Smoak can be seen below as published repeatedly by the ACLU, attorneys, civil rights activists and media reporters. Former Officer Annette Garrett’s home address and personal information can also be found here in Federal Judge Richard Smoak’s Federal Legal Court Order as listed on page 2 of the 11 page court order.
Annette Pickett Garrett, 47 years old, 7 kids, Single, Divorced Anthony Edward `Tony’ Drzewiecki, 38 yo, Home:1929 Queenswood Drive, Tallahassee, Florida 32303-7123, Home Est. $167,500. Built in 1973, 1669 square feet. Cingular Cell-Phone: (850) 228-4567, E-Mail Address: AGARRETIOO@Comcast.net.
Thus, The Home Address Of Mike and Robyn Dilmore are being published as husband and wife because they are both a police officer and a school teacher. If they don’t want transparency of their home address listed, they obviously need to find another line of work because they shouldn’t be working as public servants to the public. People should always be able to write them a letter and tell them what they think while they are paid by tax payers working in government.
Officer Mike Dilmore can easily be sued like Annette Garrett in Federal Court under 1983 for violation of Constitutional and Civil Rights or even a Federal Question for his actions.
That lawsuit can go to the Northern District Of Florida, United States Court Of Appeals For The 11th Circuit in Atlanta, Georgia, Florida Supreme Court And The Supreme Court. This is while these documents can certainly have his home address listed as his home address has been previously listed in public records or the PACER System for years. With Dilmore not wanting contact from the public to improve upon his behavior of illegal violations of citizen’s constitutional and civil rights, the only options of civil discourse are that of federal lawsuits and news stories. We could also easily have his home address published on thousands of websites like the home address of Officer Annette Garrett as her address was listed in a federal court order by that of Honorable Federal Judge Richard Smoak that is a federal judge.
When government officials attempt to seal, redact or criminalize public information based on publishings, this information usually gets shared with thousands of people as attorneys, civil rights activists, reporters, professors, bloggers and other people in media because of the scandal.
Many Tallahassee citizens may remember when Rob Brayshaw was falsely arrested because of a false police report written by that of Officer Mike Dilmore with the Tallahassee Police Department. Not only was the police report written based on an Unconstitutional Law of Florida Statute 843.17 that was an Unconstitutional and Rarely Used Law From 1972 but the law wasn’t even properly used for being unconstitutional of being a false arrest. In order to move a constitutional challenge of a law forward, the speech has to be reviewed by a judge as “protected speech”. Brayshaw’s speech was reviewed by Federal Judge Richard Smoak that found Rob Brayshaw merely posted “publicly available information on a public website” that thousands of people do everyday and don’t get falsely arrested for publications of public information from a phone book listing. The False Arrest Report By That Of Officer Mike Dilmore Actually showed that the Florida Statute law of 843.17 was illegally used for a false arrest. The false arrest for “protected speech” had to be shown to the federal judge in order to challenge the law as a 1972 Unconstitutional Law On The Books. It also showed that Tallahassee Police like Officer Mike Dilmore couldn’t keep making a bogus arrest for the same law as shown as unconstitutional with no crime ever committed for republishing a cop’s address from a phone book listing.
The Murder Of Rachel Hoffman was On the Day in May 7th, 2008 that Officer Mike Dilmore was making a false police report based on an unconstitutional publishing law that didn’t apply for any legal arrest. Drug Informant Rachel Hoffman was under police care of Tallahassee Police and was murdered.
The Tallahassee Police Department was the subject of intense scrutiny after a botched buy-bust operation ended in a fatal tragedy on May 7, 2008 with the execution style murder of 23 year-old Rachel Hoffman. Hoffman, a recent graduate of Florida State University, was serving in an undercover capacity, alone, when she was murdered by two suspected drug dealers while nearly twenty TPD officers and a DEA plane were supervising the operation. A Grand Jury investigation was highly critical of the planning and execution of the operation, and a subsequent TPD internal affairs investigation found negligence and multiple policy violations by the Vice squad and individual police officers involved. Following Hoffman’s death, the Florida legislature enacted “Rachel’s Law” and established minimum guidelines for law enforcement to use when engaging civilians in undercover operations. In a civil suit alleging wrongful death, the City of Tallahassee paid the Hoffman family $2.6 million in damages.
In 2008 a Tallahassee resident, Robert Brayshaw, was falsely arrested for violating a Florida statute which prohibited individuals from “maliciously, with intent to obstruct the due execution of the law or with the intent to intimidate, hinder or interrupt any law enforcement officer in the legal performance of his or her duties, publish or disseminate the residence address or telephone number of any law enforcement officer while designating the officer as such…” Brayshaw had posted, online, the name of a Tallahassee police officer, along with her home address, cell phone number and age. Brayshaw further criticized the officer, stating that she was verbally abusive, rude and unprofessional. Brayshaw brought an action in federal court, challenging the constitutionality of the Florida statute, claiming a right to free speech under the First Amendment. The case was heard in U.S. District Court. On April 30, 2010, Judge Richard Smoak ruled in favor of Brayshaw, striking down the 1972 Florida law, finding that the statute was “unconstitutional on its face”. Smoak also ordered the city of Tallahassee to pay Brayshaw’s legal expenses of $25,000.
