Blogger Comments: The mental health cuts within the State of Alabama have caused tremendous suffering within the the state. The Morgan County sheriff has helped to exacerbate the local mental health problem in our county by claiming she has a 24X7 mental health ward with qualified personnel equipped to care for the inmates. Another lie. Franklin's first initiative upon receiving the mentally ill inmates was to take away their doctor prescribed medications which compounds the problems with incarcerated inmates. Many of the mentally ill inmates without their medications cannot assist in their own defense when they get to court. One inmate in particular spent almost two years in jail. The inmate has recently been sent to Taylor Hardin for treatment.
