Franklin immediately replaced CPL Davis with a white female who previously worked for the Sheriff's Office. Franklin hired Ms. Carrico and made her a Corporal above other long term employees. We hear that CPL Carrico is a very hard working and dedicated employee. We have nothing against CPL Carrico.
We do have a bone to pick with Franklin. When our post came out about the hiring of CPL Carrico, Franklin moved correction officer Staten in the commissary for what we believe to be the appearance that correction office Staten is running the commissary and that she replaced a person of color with a person of color. We learned that Franklin and Carrico traveled to Wetumpka, Alabama for commissary business leaving correction officer Staten behind. So who is running the commissary/kitchen? Why was the person of color who is allegedly over the commissary/kitchen left behind?
We blogged on CPL Davis resignation from the MCSO a couple of weeks ago. The information we were given reflects that CPL Davis felt she could no longer work under the conditions that faced her each day upon entering the sheriff's office. CPL Davis worked for the MCSO commissary for several years. When CPL Davis resigned Franklin moved CPL Carrico a white corrections officer into her position in the commissary.
Isn't it interesting that Franklin was notified by the EEOC yesterday that they had received a complaint of discrimination and now Franklin is busy moving Staten, a black corrections officer, into the commissary position. Our sources tell us that this is for looks only, that CPL Carrico will continue to be in charge of the Kitchen and will still be placing the orders.
Sheriff, do you really think the EEOC is that stupid?
