Blogger Comments: We are not at all surprised that Deputy Joey Coburn is back in the news again. Joey Coburn is notorious for rough housing the people he takes into custody. From Stephanie Coburn, To Ms. Legg, to a young 16-year-old visiting his grandmother in Falkville, Alabama. Franklin is aware of Coburn’s anger issues. My question is why hasn't the sheriff sent Coburn for anger management classes? Why hasn't she tested him for human growth hormones? Sources close to Coburn say that Joey has some pretty serious issues. In March 2016, one of the bloggers noted that Coburn had a young man pulled over to the side of the road in Falkville, Coburn slammed the young man up against the kids SUV. This action was well observed by people within the Falkville community. Ms. Lockhart observed the stop.
The interesting part of the stop came with a Falkville police officer pulled off to the side of the road. The officer also observed Coburn slam the kid up against the SUV he was driving. When the Falkville office walked up to the scene Coburn threw the kids ID's at him and walked off without any explanation to the young man or the Falkville police officer.
As for Sheriff Franklin, this is just another Federal Lawsuit she is facing. To date hasn't she had approximately 38 lawsuits filed against her? Franklin has had her fair share of lawsuits. At some point the courts just start wondering what kind of organization is she running. Franklin has been mostly immune to lawsuits filed by Morgan County citizens to date but don’t you think it’s time somebody took a close look at her operation.
Sheriff has been riddled with claims of excessive tazing complaints. She has let the inmates go hungry, she has alienated the highly skilled and qualified deputies instead favoring Coburn, Blake Robinson, Bones Wilson. To the best of our knowledge to date Bones has targeted mostly family pets. Such as the chihuahua he shot in a family home with a high-powered weapon. We hear that Bones has killed approximately 30 family pets. Blake is said to be very aggressive with a phone book. Go figure. Anybody that claims he will take on the FBI on the front steps of the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office is definitely a bad ass wanna be.
