From the Alabama Sheriff's Association FaceBook
Blogger Comments: More people should voice their opinions on the Alabama Sheriffs Association Website.
I know I won't make any friends with the , but the 1939 law that allows a sheriff to pocket leftover inmate food funds as income has got to be changed. The various salaries of a sheriff in the state of needs to be enough pay to serve the public. It has been lifted from the Consent Decree in Morgan County, and the sheriff can now pocket leftover inmate food money. I don't agree with the antiquated law and never have.Just as the inmate food money law needs to be changed, the opportunity for a sheriff's department to make money off of law-abiding citizens to exercise their 2nd Amendment right has got to end. Permit fees are wrong. You don't pay to be able go to church. You don't pay to be able to speak. No one should pay a fee for the right to bear arms. Please share with everyone you can. I know there are many others that agree.
