I heard Ron C, himself, state.. With age comes wisdom..
I've also heard Pat Brown refer to him as a lying dog..
And I tend to agree with Pat Brown when she asked TJ Ward if he believed anything Ronald C told him. She stated no one can believe anything Ronald C says...JMO
How many times, when someone asks Misty a question, have we heard her start at the beginning, telling her rehearsed story?
A couple of things,
He says he doesn't look forward to breakfast, lunch and dinner, but he looks forward to AFTER breakfast, lunch and dinner because the trustee picks up the trash, right? Doesn't somebody have to BRING him his breakfast, lunch and dinner? Pass it through the hole in the door like he has to pass his trash through the door? Maybe the guy who brings his dinner doesn't speak to him, but the trustee does?
Regarding the messages...I don't think I believe he is trying to pass messages per se. I think the reason he wants the news paper is to find out what is being said about HIM and to find out what MC, TC have said. He's trying to figure out how to change his story if he needs to.
I also would suggest we carefully watch what he says in casual conversation. My personal feeling is that he may make multiple Freudian slips and that THOSE SLIPS of his subconcious will give more information about Haleigh.
Doesn't matter about the trustee now......Ron's in a different jail.
They moved him pretty quickly after those interviews... and of course, after his visit with his momma. Interesting that his recordings aren't included in this first release, and they severely curtailed his ability to broadcast himself.
I get the feeling they've already got some information to work with.
Hmmmm, where is GGS these days?
When will we hear from a document dump and videos of the sunshine law???
Is RC, or any of the 5 allowed TV?
Kyron, HALEIGH, ADJI & Gabriel NEEDS PRAYERS NOW TO FIND THEM!. Zahra & Jonathan in heaven
Justice for Hailey!!!!
No Justice for Caylee Marie..........
IMO- he goes on and on and on like he does to prevent Dana from asking questions that make him uncomfortable.
I don't give a flying flip about his poor me azz.
I say poor Haleigh.
Ronald- WHERE IS HALEIGH??????????????
Just striving to be average.
Adji is 14 years old on 10-15-14 Happy Birthday Adji, you are not forgotten and you are loved.
I hope we get to hear more interviews from Ron.
A cell phone: $300
A collect call from prison $10
Incriminating yourself on a recorded phonecall to a reporter: Priceless.
(there might be errors in this transcript and I didn't mark all the pauses)
RC= Inmate Ronald Cummings
DT= Reporter Dana Treen
DT: Dana Treen
Phone lady: Hello, this is a collect call from:
Phone lady: An inmate at Flagler county jail. With telephone service provided by Paytel Communications. The call will be recorded and subject to monitoring at any time.
RC: What’s going on man?
RC: How, how are you?
DT: How are you doing?
RC: How am I doing?
DT: How are you doing?
RC: One minute at a time, man.
DT: What, yeah, I tell you what. (beep)
RC: I ain’t really worried about the---, I’m worried about where I’m at, man. I’m in solitary confinement so I can’t even see nobody or talk to nobody and that.
DT: Oh is that right?
DT: It’s gonna be dreary.
DT: How come?
RC: I don’t know. I guess because it’s a high profile case.
RC: They’re not gonna let me out of here so I’ll go to DOC.
DT: (pause) Ah.
RC: At least that’s what I’ve been told.
DT: Who told you that?
RC: Well, uh(pause), a couple of people, but (pause) I’ve talked to two people that said that’s not true so (pause) I can’t, you know, I can’t go 100% on yes or no.
DT: I mean, uh, (pause) you had some (pause) you had some stuff in the past, nothing of, too terribly serious while that stuff with drugs, I mean, it is trafficking but it’s also, you know, it is not a first offence but it’s a (pause), I don’t know. Is it, do you think it is that serious, or do you think it’s something that you can get worked out, or something, not too…?
RC: Oh no I’m going to DOC, I’m going to prison. (pause) No ifs ands and buts.
DT: What’s that?
RC: I said there’s no ifs ands and buts. I’m going to prison. (pause) Hear me?
DT: Yeah, I hear you. Uh. ..
RC: Oh I put you on the visiting list too. You asked me to put ….(??) to put you on the visiting list and I put you on it.
DT: Yeah I did and I’m going to come down Wednesday morning, 9 o’clock.
DT: Oh, what, I guess, you know, but I, you know, I mean, following it It’s a high profile case and all of this, of course all of, you know…I guess one thing I want to ask you is they arrested you for the trafficking thing and they’ve got a, you know they say they’ve got several instances of buys and selling and all that… I guess I want to know what the, you kind of put yourself in a bad spot, you think?
RC: Did I?
DT: Yeah, I’m asking you.
RC: Did I put myself in a bad spot?
RC: Of course I did.
DT: How come? Why? Why would you… That’s a big risk?
RC: Um. I don’t know man. I don’t really know.
RC: You talking to me on the record or off the record, man.
DT: You know, we can do it either way, I mean, I wanna be sure and I want to talk to you on the record, at some point...
RC: That’s fine but leave everything we’re saying right now off if you would please.
DT: Ok, all right.
RC: Because right now, man, right now you know I’ve just said something to you that I should not have said. When you said I put myself in a bad spot and I said yes I said something I shouldn’t have said because I got a defence attorney working on this.
RC: So, you know I cut my own rope by saying one word. You put that in Jacksonville Times Union and I’m screwed.
DT: Well, they record this probably
RC: Yea but there is a difference in that, a big difference.
Thank you Donjeta for trascribing that phone call. So, Ron thinks that saying something to a journalist is different from saying it, on the phone, in jail ? He must not know a thing about the sunshine laws.
He is right about one thing, he is going to prison.
RC: Yea but there is a difference in that, a big difference.
What does Ron mean by that?
Does he think the sheriff will protect him and not let these tapes out he makes? Really what is going on here.
rc is just stupid, that's all Fess, nothing going on...imo.
He says he is not 100% sure he is going to prison...in the next two sentences he says absolutely going when he says no IF, ANDS ore BUTTS. He is similar to kc in some respects. He doesn't have an original thought. It appears he uses cliche's and other people's words to talk. One should not believe a word he says. He lies even when the truth is right in front of you and you can see it..doesn't matter.
He and KC = total narcissists
I wish he were still in Flagler. He now has people he can talk with. The only way to get to rc and force information out of him is to take away all outside social interaction. This is what he can't handle and will break. Instead they move him to a cell with open bars and other inmates...I will never figure LE's reasoning.
Of course, he's mistaken about what he said being protected. It's all recorded and subject to the state's Sunshine Law. Unless of course LE decides to redact something that will help their investigation. So, he's not as smart as he believes he is by giving statement.
The big investigaton here is about his missing daughter. Not the drug deals. If it's true the undercover deals were video taped, they've got Ron solid on those charges. And, he knows that.
But, I think Ron is going to play coy about Haleigh's disappearance. After all, to quote him, I was at werk.
But, time will tell. I really doubt Ron can handle the day to day lock up, especially when he's revealed that his biggest worry is to have clean boxers.
Sometimes when I read the release of these tapes with these characters, I think I'm dreaming. Someone pinch me.
The Hokey Pokey Clinic - A good place to turn yourself around:
Ron was rambling and controlling the conversation to make sure he only gets out with benign babble. He is slick and he is savvy when it comes to attempting to protect himself from any incrmination...after all, hasn't this been the game since the 911?
The only thing we know for sure is.. he doesn't tolerate being alone and he has to be in control. FDLE should be using these things against him. However; they may be some rules they have to follow regarding housing. He just has to slip up; he will eventually and will be placed into Ad Seg. Where he is now is not isolation, correctionally speaking. He is isolated from the general pop and all their noise, what a shame because being around newly admitted county residents is not a pleasant experience. What a shame they have all missed out on that one!

Okay everyone. I had one member suggest that instead of moving posts around, if I would ask everyone to get back on track. I'm going to try it here. The thing is, I'm not going to do this on every thread. Let's see if the suggestion works or not.
There are threads about TN's opinion of RC in jail and now I find posts here that would better be served there. And there are some posts about RC being at Putnam County Jail so I wonder if the Putnam County jail thread would be better off closed and we can continue that discussion here? Maybe even close the thread about TN?
Maybe those threads are used up and this is a better place for continuing discussions about RC in jail? (Except for venting about jewelry and laundry which is in the PL).
Normally a mod wouldn't throw this out for everyone to hash over, but I'm doing it at the request of a member. I'm feeling groovy tonight!
Opinions? Want me to close the other two threads so it is easier to follow RC in jail on just one now?
This breaking down of every subject is maddening, Kim. I would be nice to have a general discussion plus breakdowns on people and events...IDK.
