Clay County Sherriff "Deputize Gun Owners" Video Outtakes

Russel Neiss filed this request with the Clay County Sheriff's Office of Clay County, FL.


From: Russel Neiss

To Whom It May Concern:

As background, the Clay County Sheriff's Office posted a video on Facebook on or about June 30, 2020, available at the URL [ ], captioned "Sheriff Daniels speaks on who we are as a people." (hereafter referenced to as "the Facebook Video").

Pursuant to the Florida Sunshine Law, I hereby request the following records:

(a) all original footage, full clips, unedited video, raw video, drafts, unfinished versions, source video, source audio, source media, 'B roll', and out-takes of, pertaining to, part of, or relating to the Heroin Video, including without limitation any raw, unedited, or source files involved in the production of the Heroin Video or which led to the creation of the Facebook Video.


(b) all correspondence regarding or pertaining to the Facebook Video, including but not limited to the production, creation, scripting, drafting, editing, uploading, response, feedback, and management of or pertaining to the Facebook Video.

I respectfully request a waiver of all fees for this request. The disclosure of the records sought is not for commercial interest or purposes, and is likely to contribute significantly to public understanding of the operations and activities of government, particularly the making of a viral video, thus making the disclosure a matter of great public interest. Responsive records will be published and used for non-commercial news-gathering and public interest reporting. If, despite the foregoing, there are any fees for searching or copying these records, please inform me before charges are incurred.

I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Should you deny my request, or any part of the request, please state in writing the basis for the denial, including the exact statutory citation authorizing the denial as required by statute.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I would appreciate your prompt confirmation of receipt, comprehensive response, and ongoing updates.

I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days.
