Blogger Comments: One would not expect you to understand the difference between right and wrong. This has nothing to do with Republican/Democratic politics. Ms. Lawrimore, there is something inherently wrong with a person who thinks that it is OK to place people in jail and then fail to feed them nutritional meals, medical care, and administer prescriptions as prescribed by the inmate’s physician. The jail system as a required dietary guideline set up by a Federal Court Decree. The Decatur Daily is just reporting the facts. I am a little amazed that you do not understand that.
This has nothing to do with racist actions. Racism is what one does to another person through prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior. If I am not mistaken Sheriff Franklin and Greg Bartlett are both white in color. It has been my experience that the Daily is not racist, nor does racism play a part in the articles, editorials reported by the Decatur Daily, and our blog posts.
Sometimes it is easier to criticize vice conducting you’re on research, and maybe even reading the consent decrees before making a broad statement such as your comment below.
