Willie Meggs-Will You Retire For Your Own Health?

According to a recent article, Tallahassee State Attorney Willie Meggs is suffering from dementia. As someone who has personally witnessed the rapid mental deterioration caused by this disease, I think it's best Willie Meggs retire.

When I was in High School, my grandmother suffered from Alzheimer's and subsequently moved in with us. Over the span of one year, my grandmother transformed from her old self to someone who couldn't remember anyone's name. As if that wasn't enough, she couldn't remember who she was, what year it was, or where she was sitting.

Several articles have revealed that Willie Meggs is currently displaying the same symptoms as my grandmother. And while memory disorders effect everyone differently, I can't help but wonder how this will impact the city of Tallahassee.

An anonymous source within the State Attorney's Office claims that he has spotted Willie Meggs staring blankly at open space. These stares apparently last for a significant amount of time, and during this time Willie Meggs reportedly appears confused. Additionally, the anonymous source claims that Willie Meggs repeatedly forgets his name, often switching it with that of his son Wylie's. As someone who has experienced dementia first hand, I believe that these two actions correlate with dementia symptoms. Willie Meggs' reported actions are congruent with those of my grandmother, and as a Florida citizen, I'm truly concerned about this.

People with dementia or Alzheimer's are not fit to lead. In fact, it's best that they're monitored at all times. But Willie Meggs isn't monitored at all. Rather, he's running a public office that carries immense responsibilities. And all the reports of Willie Meggs' 'dropping the ball' in court prove he can no longer handle these responsibilities.

When a state prosecutor cannot describe how he feels about an opposing argument, it's time for that prosecutor to step down. Video evidence available on Youtube shows that Willie Meggs is guilty of such behavior. But for some reason, the public is not outraged about his incompetence.

It is my personal belief that many people are unaware of Willie Meggs' obvious condition. This is perhaps due to the fact that Willie Meggs has yet to come forward to admit his health problems. But I'm not really sure if that will ever happen. Often times, people suffering from dementia and Alzheimer's fail to realize that they're sick. This was the case with my grandmother, and I believe it is the case with Willie Meggs.

It is my personal belief that Willie Meggs retire for the sake of his own health. If he fails to do so, I recommend the Florida citizen carefully examine the prosecutor's speech and mannerisms. Anyone who has known somebody with dementia will immediately recognize that Willie Meggs is no longer fit to lead.

Willie Meggs-Political Favoritism

Florida State Attorney Willie Meggs plans to run for office again this year. The 2012 election will mark Willie Meggs' eighth consecutive term as FSA. But many Florida voters wonder if it's really the right decision.

Willie Meggs ran for State Attorney in 1985 after serving as Assistant State Attorney for nearly a decade. Over the past 27 years, Meggs has remained a formidable opponent to Floridian thugs on the courtroom floor. For nearly three decades, his tenure in this position earned him both the vote and the respect of the Floridian citizen. But recently Willie Meggs has experienced a significant amount of bad press. And the evidence accompanying the negative publicity is leading many former supporters to oppose the new campaign.

At the forefront of this bad press are allegations of favoritism and corruption within the State Attorney's office. Last year a woman named Lisa Brown received a relatively light charge due to her connection with a Florida prosecutor.

Brown was originally arrested in April for a DUI. The officers who arrested Brown recognized her as the fiance of Jeremy Mutz, an assistant of Willie Meggs. Brown's relationship to the Attorney's Office led to a lesser charge. She received a citation for Reckless Driving, and Mutz was called to the scene to pick her up.

Willie Meggs, a supposed crusader against drunk driving, hasn't done a thing to correct this injustice. In fact, the incident probably would've gone unnoticed if Brown wasn't arrested under similar circumstances one week later. Upon the second arrest, officer's were forced to push the initial Reckless Driving charge to a DUI. In the State of Florida, two DUI charges require mandatory jail time. But Lisa Brown has friends in high places, and friends of Willie Meggs aren't subject to the same laws as other Florida citizens.

Willie Meggs has maintained that he handled the case like he would any other. Yet Ms. Brown has still not received a prison sentence. It is said that Assistant State Attorney Jeremy Mutz did not intervene on his fiance's behalf in either case. According to Willie Meggs, Brown was prosecuted by another Assistant State Attorney. Coincidentally, the Assistant Attorney who dealt the miniscule sentence has left the State Attorney's Office. As such, Willie Meggs says that he is unable to fix the "mistake."

The citizens of Florida deserve a State Attorney who stands by his principles. And the actions of Willie Meggs suggest that he doesn't treat all cases equally. While Willie Meggs was once a great State Attorney, his record proves that long term incumbency breeds corruption. It's time that the Florida voters purge the office. It's time to get rid of Willie Meggs.

Mr.Meggs doesnt get to decide to help out.

He has to be impartial when he enforces our laws..."so what?" is part of the problem. You dont protect people from justice because they had a bad week a work!

Mr.Meggs helped that person out because he was looking out for a deputy's wife.

Willie Meggs admitted that he charges people when they dont have enough evidence and then just give a plea. This is 100% the opposite of what is taught in law school.

Willie Meggs has ran a monopoly of corruption for over 28 years in Tallahassee. He is about to lose power and will eventually get prosecuted for taking bribes to not prosecute his friends. Willie Meggs graduated last in his law school class and is a cancer to Tallahassee, Florida.
