Blogger comments below Katrina Lewis Smith's posts.  Sounds like Sheriff Franklin may have written the posts for Katrina.  Na!  Franklin realizes she has gone too far with her withdrawals and cash investments with Ziaja and cousin Greg.




Blogger Comments:  Katrina seems to blame the county commission for causing the good men and women to be exiting the sheriff's office.  If Katrina read the blog or the Decatur Daily in regards to Franklin's conduct and behavior, she may be better informed.  If Katrina’s husband (Chad Smith) had a decent rapport with his co-workers, he would know why employees want to leave the sheriff’s office.  Little to none of the reasons included in the rants has anything to do with the county commission.  Katrina should go back and review the open records that reflects the amount of money the sheriff has received from the county, state, and federal government over the past six years before she bashes the commission.  The records are available to all citizens.  The more money Franklin received the more she took.  Over the past four years we believe that Franklin started out writing small checks and once she thought nobody was watching the size of the checks increased.

Katrina seems to forget that the sheriff has been busy investing in Title Marts, withdrawing money from the sheriff’s office accounts, the fraud, waste, and abuse, the abuse of the rodeo funds that should have gone to special needs and back into the sheriff’s office to supplement sheriff’s office resources.  We understand why Katrina respects the sheriff and doesn’t want to blame her for anything.  Franklin allowed Katrina and Chad to use inmate labor to assist their move into their new home in Falkville.  Sheriff Franklin allows Katrina to carry a weapon during special events even though Katrina does not qualify for a pistol permit.  We can think of a few reasons why Katrina supports the sheriff.  They are as follows:

Each person can change.  Change for the betterment of the person and the community.  Katrina, are you really proud of what sheriff Franklin has accomplished over the past six years?  We know you travel with Franklin to events, have your picture taken with Franklin's team and that you are honored to be on Ana's team. Those character traits are not reflective of the hard working men and women of the sheriff's office.  

We would ask Katrina to look at what has gone on in the sheriff’s office before she blames the county commission.  Katrina is a good friend of Franklin’s.  That is why she can do things within the sheriff’s office that no other sheriff would allow her do based on her criminal history arrests.  People who do not abide by the law flock together.  What makes this situation worse is that most of the people involved in the downfall of the MCSO are disgraceful law enforcement.

We would expect Katrina do be more compassionate towards the inmates than it appears she is.  Jail isn't a pleasant place as Katrina knows.  It is very unpleasant when you are hungry, cold, or sleeping on the floor or equivalent to sleeping on the floor.  

Franklin could have used the money she squandered to issue annual awards and incentive awards over the years instead of playing rodeo queen, spending thousands and thousands of dollars on three horse trailers that most likely belong to the sheriff’s office, horses, saddles, bridles, saddle blankets, embroidery cowboy/cowgirl clothing and hats, pageant dresses and more that also belong to the sheriff’s office.  Not to mention the cash money.  Did Franklin really believe that if she wrote counter checks nobody would notice?  Franklin also made yearly payments of $25,000.00 to a company to sponsor her posse/rodeo events.  The same company that gave them yearly kudos and awards.  If someone gave us $25,000.00 a year we would write them an award as well. 

Don’t get us wrong we would love to see all the hard-working men and women working in the MCSO get a raise.  But you have to ask your self why Franklin would fight for raises for her employees when she routinely cheats them out of their hard earned pay on a weekly, monthly, yearly basis, year after year?  Franklin could have given annual cash awards from $500.00 up to two thousand dollars per year to each employee of the sheriff's office had she not screwed the employees.    

The only person’s working in the sheriff’s office that Franklin cares about is herself, Bones Wilson who has made over $107,000.00 in overtime alone since Franklin took office.  The same Bones Wilson who invested $5,000.00 cash in the Franklin, Ziaja, Steenson Title Mart scheme and received a 22 percent return on his investment within 30 days.  Blake Robinson has made over $67,000.00 in overtime since Franklin took office.  Blake also invested $8,000.00 in the Title Mart scheme with the assurance he would receive a payout within 30 days.  Blake received $9,760.00 within 30 days of his initial investment.  Ron Livingston made a large sum of money for overtime he did not work.  He was paid to be at special events he did not work yet many of the deputies that worked did not get paid.  The Berzett’s and Goodwin’s have also profited from the sheriff’s office resources, as has Franklin’s family.

For all of the above reasons there is nobody to blame but Sheriff Ana Franklin and her thugs for the state of the Morgan County Sheriff's Office.

    1. who sets the pay scale? If the commissioner sets a decent pay scale, there wouldn't be as much money left in the budget to spend on other things...

    2. A lesson in government budgets: Department heads in this case the Sheriff submits an operational budget. Included is requests for raises and training etc.. If the department head does't request it it can't be granted, and just because it's requested does't mean it will be granted. It's not entirely up to the commission as claimed. In closing, you know you printing the truth when others make criticizing comments LOL!

    4. Again this person (s) were proven wrong. What about one Sunday evening when a SO supervisor plead for someone not to be arrested, and even still what has happened yet again?

  3. And this is coming from someone who inappropriately uses commas , puts 5 spaces in between words, and nobody can probably even understand anything you say . Please shut the fuck up with you're ignorance and stupidity

  4. First of all,"Potty Mouth", I have no intentions of shutting up,and secondly I have a very old computer.Furthermore, I taught, English Grammar and Literature for thirty two years.Again, your filthy mouth ,shows your lack of a proper education.My guess is, that you probably left school in the fifth grade, and that was probably after being held back three or four times.If you did not understand what was written,I rest my case.You appear to be a person with very low self esteem. "Bless Your Heart",as we ladies like to say ,in the South.

  5. Who is Cil Bailey? Your ex wife, or your mother? Are you a woman hater or did you just hate your teachers?

  6. As an experienced educator, you understand that a person's writing style can be akin to a fingerprint. An observant reader can distinguish between writers by key words, phrases, or other tendencies. Glenda Lockhart, Rick Sherman, Karmen Collins, and Cil Bailey are rather easily differentiated.

  9. While name calling and bashing grammar may seem like a great idea, does it help the task at hand? Does sharing arrest records help the MCSO staff? Does it matter if the blog owner is a successful business owner? Is correct grammar and complete sentences helping solve the issues at the MCSO? Allow time for the justice system to work through the info provided and hopefully justice will prevail. Until then, maybe digging into ways to reach out to commissioners in a positive way would be most beneficial to the staff.
