Their irresponsible and criminal conduct has given our community a huge black eye. Surrounding county sheriffs offices do not want to be associated with our sheriff, Bones, or Blake Robinson. Most consider Larry Berzett an arrogant ass, and Franklin has placed people such as Dee Goodwin who is paid as contract labor with a gas card, sheriff's office attire, and a county vehicle. Franklin claims that she is required to provide Dee with all the perks. Franklin easily placed her loyal friends in positions so that she would not be challenged when she went after the five-finger discounts.
What is truly bizarre is the fact that all of these God-fearing people that Franklin surrounds herself with have no problem with Ana's corruption. Why is that? We know that during the posse events that little to no cash ever made it to the bank. We know that Larry took a hand full of cash and stuffed it in his pockets. So, is that the incentive? We know that Franklin put a load of money that did not belong to her in the Title Marts. We also know that Bones and Blake invested in the Title Mart scheme. We know that Blake and Steven Ziaja set up a detail shop at the Hartselle Title Mart and made some 38K for their efforts at the expense of the Jeffreys. We know that Sheriff Franklin has been draining the MCSO bank accounts since 2013. We know that there are still ongoing investigations into the treatment and medical treatment of the inmates. We know that Franklin, Ziaja, Bones, Blake, Justin Powell and others are sweating bullets because of their conduct and actions. We know that a chunk of money went into the property in Saraland.
We are all human and we make mistakes. Year after year of thieving is not a mistake; it is intentional. These folks have intentionally set out to take from others. They have taken from the sheriff's office, they have taken from the citizens, and they have destroyed the credibility of the MCSO. Just a few bad apples have taken from our county with no regards as to the impact on us. All of us. These folks are going to scream and yell that this blog is the same ole message. Maybe so but it is still true.
Last but not least we know that we will continue to be beaten up by some of the anonymous comments. I think we have said this before. Hit us with your best shot.
