Loved the Decatur Daily Editorials today. Our opinion is that it seems most people agree that it doesn't make sense that the attorney for the board is taking money from the companies. We reviewed the business incorporation information on the Alabama Business Entity Website but the Articles of Incorporation was not posted. To obtain the information we will take a trip to the Decatur Courthouse to purchase the Articles of Incorporation.
It is also pertinent to mention that the attorney, in this case, is also the attorney for the Morgan County Sheriff. Sheriff Franklin has been involved in controversy since taking office in January 2011. Sheriff Franklin's controversy seems to grow by leaps and bounds as the months go by. Both Sheriff Ana Franklin and her attorney Barney Lovelace were in attendance when the plan was devised to break into the whistleblower's office to obtain documents, video the office, and obtain copies of emails on the whistleblower's personal computer. They didn't find anything wrong with that. The meeting of Ana and her goons went one step further and had Justin Powell and Blake Robinson work to have Keylogger software installed on the whistleblower's computer.
We can't understand how Lovelace is still in business. The actions taken in the whistleblower's office are illegal. Franklin's comments to the media are that even if she did do it she is immune from prosecution.
Does that mean that every illegal act the sheriffs in Alabama commit gives them immunity to prosecution?
