We are not responsible for our families' actions. However, the privileges Ana has bestowed on her family members is egregious. Ana's family members who chose to get involved in the Performance Auto Sales schemes are responsible for their own actions. On, the other hand the family may very well consider Ana's position as sheriff an entitlement. Especially if they commit a crime and Ana goes in and cleans the mess up for them.
Not only does Ana's family have entitlements to the sheriff's office, so does her son-in-law's family. Timothy Allan Hall was convicted of vehicular homicide in Limestone County. Sheriff Franklin placed an in-household on Hall ensuring that he will never see the walls of a prison. Instead of prison Hall spends more time out of jail in Morgan County than he does in jail. Another family member has been arrested in Limestone County multiple times and convicted of crimes yet Ana hired him as a corrections officers.
Ana's family is right to feel like they have an entitlement. They do. They are entitled to do anything they want because Mama Ana will get them out of the poop they find themselves in. The question is who will get Ana out of the poop she's in?
We all have issues with our family. Each of us must deal with our own set of family issues. Mine has certainly been laid out for all to see but in the scheme of things, I would still rather have my problem than Ana's problem. As to my grandson Daniel Lockhart. I forgive Daniel for each and everything he did. When the time is right each, every issue will be laid out for the people of our county to decide for themselves what really happened between the whistleblower and the sheriff, and why the whistleblower became the whistleblower.
