Blogger Comment: You are absolutely correct I do not know what happened and neither do you. I don't believe everything I read, but I do believe that Sheriff Ana Franklin has hired some people who are not as qualified as they should be in Law Enforcement. The new employees have nobody in leadership positions to guide them in the right direction. Franklin has forced a lot of good deputies out and most of the others desperately want out. Those are the things I do know. With people in leadership positions such as Bones, Blake, JP, Livingston, and Berzett leading the MCSO along with Sheriff Ana Franklin nothing would surprise me. I support all of the hard working men and women of the Sheriff's Office who have kept the office running since Sheriff Franklin took office. I still do. My comments stand. If what was written in the Daily Editorial really happened it is my opinion that it is wrong.
I don't have a political agenda as others do. I am not running for sheriff and I have no adverse agenda towards the deputies.
Base on what I read, if it truly happened I disagree with the actions. Furthermore, if that is all it takes to change your mind about the blog and the people behind it, your opinion was already set. Sounds like you are gearing up for a run yourself and you want all the deputies to believe you are the best. I had this same conversation with a person who is running for sheriff. I disagreed with his opinion and he disagreed with mine. That is what this blog is about. We call 'em the way we see 'em. If you can't handle it, don't read it.
Another person who is running for sheriff made the statement on his FB that he has no association with the whistleblower blog or the writers of the blog. We totally agree with him he has no involvement with the whistleblowers. We are not endorsing any of these people for sheriff. That is not what the blog is about. On the other hand the man who placed his comments on his FB account claims that Franklin has a few administrative issues that should not have been addressed on the blog the way they were. If this fellow believes that Franklin has "administrative" issues only, we sure as hell do not want this nut in office.

As it stands, you have no idea what actually happened at Talucah Landing. You've read one person's account, without regard to the opposing viewpoint.
You see,I have no idea, and you don't either, about the reason the deputies were there to begin with. Was there a complaint about public drinking or underage drinking? There again,I don't know and neither do you. If deputies are searching without probable cause, they should be dealt with, and those cases thrown out.
Surely you don't believe everything you read on the internet? That's a rhetorical question, no need to reply.
All along,I thought you supported the "hard working men and women of the sheriff's office", I guess it's too convenient when there is some negativity to spew. Looks like you're especially unhappy with the newest deputies, how odd.
