Motions Within MCSO

If there's movement, there's life.  Folks, there's a lot of moving around and not just 'property' to the Massey VFD as a commentor said on the previous blog.   No, no.  The Chief Shifter(AKA Ana) is shuffling the deck with appointments as more of the good folks leave. 
Four of her favorites were promoted, loyal troopers that they are.  Her rule is to stay away from long-term employees and it'll pay off.   Money can't buy you love but it can buy what looks like loyalty.  We'll see.
Other rumored movements:
Zivitt is moving to the Limestone County SO. 
Richard Hamm and Brandon Caldwell have turned in their two-week notices.
Guys, it may too late.  The stink of working for Ana is hard to wash off.  You might try a combination of dish detergent and peroxide.  It works for skunks.

Getting back to Blake and the 'storage unit' in the fire house.  Could some of that be property stolen..er..seized from Warden Bradley's house, property that Judge Thompson order returned to Leon.  Bet there's some Straightline files in there too.  Anonymous, thanks for the info.  Keep up the surveillance but remember, no stalking.

Sickening - Money - Power - Prestige

Police investigating allegations Alabama's 'Beach House Sheriff' had sex with underage girls

Back in Town

Blogger Comments:  Folks, we hear Ana is coming back in town this week.  We also hear Saraland is wonderful this time of year.  We can't blame Ana for getting away for some much-needed rest.  Screwing the county is hard work.  

We hear the frustration from employees and citizens almost daily.  Nobody believes anything will happen to Franklin and friends for their misdeeds.  We do believe that they will pay for their actions.  None of them believe they will get more than a slap on the hand.  We hear that the sheriff believes that because she is a "Republican" she will face no jail time.  Bones is busy asking folks about the statute of limitations.  It shouldn't matter whether you are Republican, Democrat, or Independent, you are law enforcement for God sakes.  Have you no shame.  It appears that the current ALEA, Governor, and State Attorney General believes in fighting corruption regardless of your political affiliation.  

Sumter County sheriff found guilty, ousted from office

Alabama Supreme Court Justices have found Sumter County Sheriff Tyrone Clark guilty of willful neglect of duty and corruption in office.
Their decision signals Clark’s automatic removal from his position, to which he was elected in 2011.
Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange said this was the first time in 44 years that a sheriff has been impeached.
"It’s extraordinarily rare, but it’s extraordinarily important because a violation of public trust by a law enforcement official is about the highest level of corruption I can imagine," Strange said.
A litany of allegations against Clark were fleshed out during his trial. Most of them centered around Clark's friendship with Rodney Coats – an inmate at the Sumter County Prison who was made a “trustee.”
Inmate trustees are typically low-risk, nonviolent offenders, said Assistant Attorney General Megan Kirkpatrick during her opening arguments on Monday. By contrast, Coats has eight criminal charges pending against him with a bond totaling $675,000.

Because of his "trustee" status, Coats was granted special privileges. But Coats' privileges went beyond what is normally granted to an inmate trustee.
A former chief deputy to Clark testified Tuesday that Coats had unsupervised access to what was known around the jail as “Coats' Quarters,” located in the administration building.
Found in “Coats' Quarters” was a television, bus seats from Clark’s old campaign bus, a couch, a toolbox and a laptop labeled “Sheriff” that Coats used to monitor his drug operation from jail, testimony indicated.
One woman testified Monday that she was held against her will in a trailer controlled by Coats, which was equipped with surveillance cameras that fed into his jail laptop. She said she was regularly made to bring drugs to Coats in his quarters, where he and other detention officers raped her. She also accused Clark of sexual assault.
Clark denied her allegation, as well as being aware that she had been brought to Coats.
He was also found guilty of allowing Coats and other inmates to leave the jail to go work on his house or perform other jobs for community members. Under cross-examination, Clark admitted to knowing this was a crime when he allowed it to happen.

Defense counsel argued during trial that Clarks’ case was one of small town politics that had been blown out of proportion.
“This case illustrates a conspiracy by political opponents by the sheriff who were sore losers,” said defense attorney Robert Tuten during closing statements Wednesday. “They couldn’t beat him in an election, and attempted to knock him out of office so they could take his place.”
The investigation into Clark's activities was initiated by the Sumter County District Attorney's Office. Any criminal charges brought against Clark would be a separate matter. Sumter County District Attorney Greg Griggers said he could not comment on any ongoing criminal investigations pertaining to Clark.

Excerpts from the Daily - And Our Opinion

Blogger Comments:  Warden Bradley's lawsuit sums up in a nutshell the whistleblowers' belief of what Sheriff Ana Franklin, Bones Wilson, Blake Robinson, and Justin Powell have been doing for years.  Remember the hearing where Warden Bradley was cleared of any wrongdoing?  Remember Blake Robinson and Justin Powell's riveting testimony?  In addition, had you been in the courtroom you could have watched the illustrious Jail Administrator turn as red as a beet when Blake Robinson testified.  Those who didn't admit the truth, Bone and Ana had others do it for them.  Ana went cop shopping to several different law enforcement offices.  They testified as to the knowledge Franklin had of some of the actions taken by the sheriff and her band of thieves.  There are very few people in Morgan County who have much trust in the sheriff and her Gang of Three.  The whistleblowers agree with the warden's attorneys "the real story needs to be told".  

Folks, we believe when the real story comes out you will be shocked at all these so-called law enforcement officers have done.  We believe the truth will come out in due time either through our lawsuits or other processes.  We are in no hurry.  The sheriff and her gang have been at this a long time; the corruption didn't just start.  They have had a lot of time to do a lot of damage to the citizens of this county, the sheriffs office, sheriffs office employees, the inmates, and the county as a whole.  

When we first started the blog all we could think of is that nobody will believe this stuff.  Each time we heard something else we repeated those words again.  It is hard to believe the mess these four people have done to try to destroy others.  But it's all true, believe it or not.


Former warden sues Morgan sheriff, deputies

    “Public faith in the integrity of the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department has been eviscerated by systemic misconduct under Sheriff Ana Franklin,” according to the first paragraph of the complaint, and for the next 56 pages it packs in allegations that include everything from misuse of rodeo funds to investments in bankrupt used car lots to unlawful surveillance.

LEON W. BRADLEY, Plaintiff, v. Ana Franklin, Robert Wilson, Blake Robinson, Justin Powell,...

In their official and individual capacity; and THE MORGAN COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE.
WOW!  It feels as if Warden Bradley's Attorneys summed up in 56 pages exactly the who, what, when, where, and why of what Ana Franklin, Bones Wilson, Blake Robinson, Justin Powell, and others did to us to cover their sorry butts.
