Michael Barfield of the ACLU and a volunteer for the 2012 Sarasota Chalk Festival contends the arrest by the Sarasota Police Department violated Chris Young’s constitutional right of free speech. The involvement of Michael Barfield and the ACLU and all the media coverage of Chris Young has made all of the participants, at the very least ,”Limited Public Figures” and as such the motives and backgrounds of Michael Barfield and Chris Young and their interaction with Law Enforcement are open to scrutiny.

Chris Young has a lengthy arrest and conviction record in Illinois and in Florida, the mugshot photo above was taken in Sarasota in 2009, three years before the chalk festival arrest in 2012. Occupy Sarasota poster boy Chris Young had been arrested multiple times by the cops in Sawannee County and Sarasota he knew the drill and he knew not to resist because that just adds to the charges. Chris Young, work as a drug dealer, was known to the Sarasota Police Department (SPD) Intelligence Division as they keep track of guys like him when they show up in town, so why did Chris Young ignore the cops request for him to move on in Five Points Park, why did he resist arrest in Five Points Park when he knew not to, or did he want to be arrested, was this a set up for a possible lawsuit? In my opinion and from the facts gathered by an investigation of open public court records, arrest records and archived news articles, it appears to me and it is my opinion that Occupy Sarasota poster boy Chris Young has set up the Sarasota Police Department and the City of Sarasota for a Federal Civil Rights Lawsuit with the help of Michael Barfield of the ACLU.
Sarasota Chalk Festival Volunteer and Paralegal Michael Barfield Crafted the Predatory Lawsuit Filed on the Sarasota Police Dept that Lingers in Court. As of today, no payday for Chris Young and his protest pals, neither is it a payday for attorney Andrea Morgensen or her paralegal, at the time, Michael Barfield. Could the lawsuit filed on the Sarasota Police Dept (for the 5 Points Chalk Festival arrest) and crafted by Michael Barfield been staged? Cop Hater Michael Barfield is the president of the Sarasota ACLU Who Couldn't Pass a Background Check to Flip Burgers at McDonald's. A convicted felon by his own admission and barred from calling himself a lawyer by the Florida Bar Association, Barfield serves as President of the Florida ACLU Sarasota and chair of the Legal Panel of the A.C.L.U.’s Sarasota Chapter.
BOGUS LAWSUIT CRAFTED BY PARALEGAL MICHAEL BARFIELD
SARASOTA HERALD TRIBUNE WRITES August 3rd, 2018: Transparency for Florida says Michael Barfield coerced them into taking action over public records laws. More than two weeks after filing a lawsuit against two Sarasota County School Board members for not complying with public records laws, the advocacy organization filing the suit, Transparency for Florida, now alleges that they were coerced to do so unwittingly by local paralegal Michael Barfield. 'Transparency for Florida' Claims Paralegal Michael Barfield Conned Them Into Filing Lawsuit on Sarasota School Board & 2 Members with $3,700 From Unknown Source Over Public Records Laws. The lawsuit against all parties was voluntarily dismissed on August 2nd, 2018. What the hell was Paralegal Michael Barfield up to? An affidavit, sent to Herald-Tribune reporters Thursday, August 2nd, 2018 alleges that the three people who sit on the 'Transparency for Florida' organization’s Board of Directors never allowed Barfield to use an email address that was supposedly connected with their organization, never established any sort of “attorney-client relationship” with Robert Watrous, the Sarasota attorney in charge of the suit, never “knowingly” voted for or requested the lawsuit and never authorized any attorney fees to Robert Watrous or Michael Barfield.
The document goes on to request that the court dismiss the lawsuit. It is signed by all three Transparency for Florida board members — Joel Chandler, Kali Crum and Nicholas Plummer — and notarized. Apparently Paralegal Michael Barfield told Plummer to open a corporate bank account in "Transparency for Florida’s" name and that he told Plummer to deposit $3,700, which Barfield produced, into the account. Michael Barfield then told Plummer to withdraw that money, $3,500, as a cashier’s check that could be paid to Sarasota attorney Robert Watrous. The document says that the board of directors did not allow a corporate bank account to be opened or a check to be issued. They do not know the origin of the $3,700, the affidavit alleges. Where did the $3,700 come from, is this political as the two school board members were up for re-election? Did Sarasota attorney Robert Watrous know the $3,700 for the coerced lawsuit came from Michael Barfield (who apparently works for him) and a unknown source? I'm sure the Florida Bar would be very interested in this supposed transaction.
SARASOTA HERALD TRIBUNE WROTE July 18. 2018. A lawsuit filed Monday afternoon against Sarasota County School Board officials contends that they failed to comply with public records laws by not providing text messages. The Sarasota School board was added to the lawsuit on July 23, 2018. It was filed by Sarasota attorney Robert Watrous on behalf of Transparency for Florida, a Tampa-based not-for-profit group that says it aims to “keeping public officials honest.” Michael Barfield, who is the president of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, is a public watchdog in addition to being a paralegal who regularly tracks public officials’ compliance with public record laws, often suing for alleged violations. He said suing is the frequently the only way to prompt government responses to public records requests. “There’s nothing political about this — I’ve been seeking public records for the School Board and its members for years,” Barfield said. “I’ve sued them at least two or three times in the last couple of years.” Brown and Goodwin are notably up for re-election during the Aug. 28 2018 primary election.
Michael A. Barfield, a paralegal and litigation consultant, plead guilty on May 12, 1999, to five Federal felony offenses. The Federal conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and perjury convictions stem from Michael Barfield’s role in concocting a false accusation in 1997 against then-United States District Judge Lee P. Gagliardi, now deceased, and Assistant United States Attorney Kathleen A. Haley, in an attempt to disqualify the judge from presiding over a pending criminal case. Michael Barfield hired two private investigators, Deana Scapaccino and Dana Corum, to help carry out the illegal scheme. Michael Barfield, Scapaccino and Corum falsely claimed that the judge and prosecutor met at a restaurant where they discussed details of the pending prosecution and exchanged case-related documents. During the federal grand jury investigation triggered by this accusation, Barfield and his co-conspirators repeatedly attempted to bolster their false accusation by providing false information to the FBI and false testimony and Michael Barfield and his pals fabricated documents to the grand jury.
