Blogger Comments: Sheriff Ana Franklin and good ole Barney sure are working hard to get out from under the Federal Decree. Why? Money and downsizing is the answer. It has nothing to do with the well being of the inmates. Once Franklin has gotten rid of the consent decree she will drop the size of the MCSO jail staff increasing the money she has access to and then it will be back to business as usual. This will not only hurt the inmates and pose a danger to the corrections officers but it will also pose a serious problem for the next sheriff.
