Calm Before the Storm

  One week from today!  This time next week we will have a courtroom full of people getting to see firsthand what is really going on.  The manipulation, defiance and deceit will likely be in part out in the open for all to see.  Next week will be a very busy week for many.

  Look up Al.com and the story on the ponzi scheme with the Birmingham Water Works.  Birmingham and Jefferson county is also a place that has seen more than its fair share of corruption.  Here, it is a Sheriff Ana Franklin and her crooks that have robbed the Sheriff's Office of tax payer money and invested it in the ponzi scheme known as Title Marts. Which Ana claims to be a "legitimate business".

  The mess that is in Montgomery that Ana has such strong ties with and who she feels will save her, are in enough hot water they likely wont be able to save themselves much less Ana.

  It is now all over this state about the corrupt Sheriff in Morgan County.  We know our citizens, the employees, their families, the inmates and so many others are ready for this to all end and for Ana and her co-conspirators to be held accountable.

  Inadequate care of inmates that in one case has lead to the death of an inmate, theft of taxpayer money for personal gain, defiance and contempt of the federal consent decree.  willful neglect of duties, running all over the US on tax payer money while seldom at work in the Sheriff's Office, using a rodeo to pad a select few pockets while painting a picture of it benefiting the law enforcement officers and other employees, illegal search and seizure, illegal wire taping and keylogger devices, opening of bank accounts outside this county to further attempt to hide money.  overtime paid only to the few chosen at a rate much more than actually worked or earned, criminal coercion, conspiracy, and willful destruction of evidence, the unethical deals made with so many including AT&T and the list goes on.  The so called immunity, lies and deceit as Ana tries to spin her way into making people believe she is a victim has gone on way to long.  Using pistol permit money to pay co-conspirator Barney Lovelace to try to save both their freedom, her idol threats and means of intimidation are all but meaningless as she and her band of thugs have lost all credibility.  How long has Ana claimed she would arrest the whistleblowers or otherwise silence us?

  There are still a small number of folks who have their head in the sand or are uniformed enough to believe her actions are good and she is a good sheriff.  We know different and can prove it.  Soon, as this continues to unfold in the upcoming court appearances this will be exposed.  We still are finding out more everyday.

  All this going on and the Sheriffs Office continues to loose good employees.  The Sheriffs Office is hiring new untrained personnel for an already relatively new untrained jail staff pushed beyond the limits of what is safe.

  Unarmed individuals in uniform that appear to be deputies at armed post and personnel who have not and can not qualify are caring weapons.  The rules seem not apply to this administration!  Safety and training of the employees and those they are assigned to guard and protect is at a point where it is dangerous beyond what is necessary for all involved.

  So many unfortunate circumstances!  This does however seem to be the calm before the storm and there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  One day we all hope the Sheriff's Office will have a command staff and employees we can all have confidence in and respect.

  As always to the many honorable hard working employees of the Sheriff's Office hang in there, it is almost over!

  3. Rick and Glenda are both very sad individuals. The both of you have done very wrong but insist on blaming others. You can't blame the sheriff for your son's wrong doing, Glenda. Rick you can't blame the sheriff for your insubordination. Clean your closets out really well before you try and clean other's out.

    1. Clean those closets...maybe Glenda can tell us how she bankrupted her business in 2015. Looks like she left her creditors holding the bag to the tune of about $600,000.

    2. Hey Rick Sherman, in case you haven't realized it yet, Glenda will burn you to the ground soon as you're no longer useful.

      Delete
    3. Rick probably isn't smart enough to realize this, I'm pretty sure if you go back far enough, Glenda or some of her other thugs were running ole Sherm down.
      Kinda sad, he's just another useful pawn for Glenda until he becomes a liability.

  4. It is very sad that you are acusing Rick and Glenda of wrong doing. I don't think their personal business has anything to do with the Sheriff in office now. I personally know how deceitful Anna Franklin can be. I also believe that she has misused quite a bit of taxpayers money. She needs to be held accountable for every penny and be charged with the maximum sentence possible when found guilty. Rick and Glenda's personal money and business is not public funding. Also you sound like a deputy probably Jones is your last name?

  5. Bankruptcy happens, you can't predict the future, the economy, or the government. What I can add to this discussion is...Ana did many things prior to stealing. As, in, consulting a lawyer before stealing inmate food money and before she was in an official position. She was told "NO" but like selfishness does, said, "yes" and went for the pot. Rick is a great man, and Glenda a great woman. They realize what can happen to their reputation and still choose to inform the public in transparency. My question is...where is Ana, didn't she make that promise? Rick and Glenda are sacrificing alot to inform you folks, because they're honest and really great people. They've worked hard for what they have, like you...while Ana steals it!!!

  6. There is a difference between being a victim of circumstances and being a fraud. The latter is Ana. Glenda is kind, passionate, and defends those who have no voice. Rick stand strong, you're a great guy.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Rick is a great guy? Maybe so, but he was a terrible deputy, shoulda been fired years earlier.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Totally agree he should have been fired years ago, oh wait he was from other police departments. Every time he is fired it is always someone else's fault. You would think eventually he would see that the problem is "him" not place the blame on others. Only real men can take the responsibility of their wrong doing though. Like I said earlier make sure your closet is clean very clean before trying to clean others. There are too many people that know the truth about Rick and Glenda so they really need to be careful what they say. Make sure your personal life is all clean and in order before you post on other's personal life.

  9. As the songs says "The Heat Is On" and the fans of Ana Franklin it appears are posting anonymous personal comments about the "bloggers"and trying to deflect any of the blogs against Sheriff Franklin...cute. Juvenile stuff. It's an old and useless tactic to say look at others, when the scope is on you. Frankly, the media has reported and quoted enough for me. The federal court order is plain and easy to understand, anyone that is Sheriff can't take the left over food money, aka tax dollars and put that money in their pocket. Ms. Franklin has done so by her own admission, knowing what the court said and what the county's attorney opinin was prior to taking office when she asked for his opinion. He said "no." But the temptaion took over after the State audit in 2014. Thisis all in press reports. Then opening an account for the "funds" in a Cullman bank. Cullman? Do we not have banks in Morgan County? Hmmm...seems a bit deceptive. Again I bring my broken record. The Morgan County Sheriff makes nearly 70 grand in salary, has a county vehicle with a gas card and probably a credit card for expenses and this isn't enough? All the while the jailers and deputies struggle to make ends meet. None of this is in dispute. It happened and is happening. And last, none of us taxpayers (according to press reports) have a right to know according to the Sheriff and her attorney as to how much money the sheriff has taken. Yet, some people can still defend those actions. Deflect from talking about it. point fingers in another direction. As grandson says " not cool paw-paw." Charlie McCall.

  10. Hey "Charlie", your faith in the Daily and Glenda speaking the truth is pretty amazing. Every now and then you might want to think for yourself, do some actual research before you pass final judgement. May I suggest you start by learning what a consent decree actually is. The Daily, and Glenda and her thugs share an agenda.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I assure you who likes to speak in anonymous status that it's easy to do research on a federal court order. I can do it right from my easy chair on my lap top. Actually what has been reported on this matter seems pretty correct, or else there wouldn't be a hearing on the matter in the Federal Court in Decatur next week. The press reports are direct quotes from Ms. Franklin and her attorney, it doesn't get much more plain than that. An agenda? perhaps they do, but so does the Sheriff. By her own admission she has taken the money. That is an agenda of greed, and I don't pay taxes for elected officials to put those dollars in their pocket. The "decree" can be found on the internet, I have read it several times, easy to understand. Charlie

    2. And while you are at it please let Bones know we did not appreciate him lying to a Fed TVA Investigator saying Doug failed the Lt Exam when there was no exam...he got the job and you rotten folks ruined that one too..disgusting.

    2. Sorry we experienced several wrong doings before this corrupt Sheriff took office. My husband went to get his Lt. Badge before she took office...they all lied and wrote a statement saying he better get it with Bartletts name on it before she takes office...Ana had them all lie for her because she already knew what she was going to do to my hubby

      Delete
    3. Then she sends Captain Law to his office her first day in office to inform him he has been demoted in rank and pay. He demands a meeting with the sheriff and a reason in writing...he gets meeting...she grilled him for over 2 hours for using Danny Kelso and Mike Wilson as back Up on meth labs...he asked for reason for firing...nope...sorry no reason.

      Delete
    4. Second meeting she had Corley hand him his file...tried to piss him off...still no reason in writing.

    5. You need to read Alabama law, deputies work at the will of the Sheriff. That means they don't have to give a reason for firing a deputy, I don't personally agree with that but it is what it is. Nor am I taking up for our current sheriff. It appears your husband was a victiom of politics. But in being a deputy he should know that he worked at the will of the sitting sheriff.

      Delete
    6. Without looking it up, I believe Doug Key sued Sheriff Ana Franklin 2 or 3 times, and lost every time.

    7. You are incorrect there sir...wrongful termination once...eeoc complaint was filed because one her cronies lied to a Federal Investigator from the TVA and said he failed the Lt. exam...when he was a Lt. the day she took office. That is all I will say to you folks that think you know the story...it is incorrect.

    8. I pray for Ana...I loved her before she took office...she had an agenda and we heavily paid the price...she surrounded herself around the wrong group of people. I feel for her. Maybe a lesson will be learned in the future.

    9. Well now....works at the will of the sheriff, fired by Sheriff and still fired. And I am incorrect? I'm not taking up for the Sheriff but deputies work at the will of the sheriff all I am pointing out.

  15. I generally keep quiet, keep to myself, etc. God says to be responsible for me, but me means those I love, me means, what I believe in, and me means, my well being. I have never been arrested, not ticketed, and appreciate law enforcement, because honestly I couldn't do it. But, I certainly appreciate them. We need an upstanding leader. Ana, I've actually seen your wrong doing, but I pray for you.I don't have a Dog in the fight, don't want too. Honey, my elders told me to pick your battles. You've lost this one. You can try to do right now, but you've hurt many in 6 years. Why did you let that money get to you. I always say, use your energy to do the best of things, instead of wasting it on covering up what you did wrong.

  16. To the dumb ignorant person who thinks Glenda has what it takes to run for sheriff . I do believe you have to have a form of law enforcement background .

  18. There has to be a good candidate out there somewhere...put money in the deputies protecting our counties wallets...give them the resources and equipment they need to do their jobs instead of investing into a rogue business scheme with Morgan County Tax payers dollars.

The way you and Rick Sherman put your business and hatred out in the public no one in their right mind would ever hire them for law enforcement or hopefully any other job. You guys are making yourselves look very ignornant. I feel sorry for the shame and disappointment you are putting on your family's.

    9. All the name calling? For someone I know is an intelligent woman and you have lowered your standards, how sad is that. Get off the pitty party train of Glenda and become the strong, independent, confident, hard working, proud woman and mother you once were. I've never said the sheriff is in the right ever. I believe she has done very wrong in many situations, but her wrong doings shouldn't make you stoop to her level. I saw the perfect saying on a church sign...Don't throw mud, you will lose your ground. Become strong again!

    12. And as far as Rick Sherman goes...the only time I met him was when Doug was in his personnel review board hearing in 2011...packed court room Ana called him for back up hoping when Barney questioned my husband a deputy would be there to arrest him...her plan did not work out too well. He was super nice and family members asked why he was there...he had no idea. Not to mention the fact that Ana stopped me and my beautiful daughter in front of bathroom and said I am so sorry Maria...I would have never fired Doug if it wasn't for him making a fiasco out of this mess in the Decatur Daily...2 minutes later she was questioned on the stand about that statement and she denied ever saying it. Sorry truth is truth. Maybe there should be video cameras in the courtroom like she tried to do to us. Just saying

  33. Psalm 64

    1 Hear me, my God, as I voice my complaint;
    protect my life from the threat of the enemy.
    2 Hide me from the conspiracy of the wicked,
    from the plots of evildoers.
    3 They sharpen their tongues like swords
    and aim cruel words like deadly arrows.
    4 They shoot from ambush at the innocent;
    they shoot suddenly, without fear.
    5 They encourage each other in evil plans,
    they talk about hiding their snares;
    they say, “Who will see it[b]?”
    6 They plot injustice and say,
    “We have devised a perfect plan!”
    Surely the human mind and heart are cunning.
    7 But God will shoot them with his arrows;
    they will suddenly be struck down.
    8 He will turn their own tongues against them
    and bring them to ruin;
    all who see them will shake their heads in scorn.
    9 All people will fear;
    they will proclaim the works of God
    and ponder what he has done.
    10 The righteous will rejoice in the Lord
    and take refuge in him;
    all the upright in heart will glory in him!
