As the last couple of years, months, and days pass some of the anonymous comments get more nasty and vulgar all because the whistleblowers have told the truth about the Morgan County Sheriff and her goons. We told you so but you didn't want to listen. The truth hurts but sadly enough most would rather blame the person(s) who bring public corruption up as a talking point than face the facts.
We told the truth about Sheriff Franklin hiring her daughter to work in the sheriff's office during the first term in office.
We told the truth about Franklin hiring her common-law son-in-law as a correction officer while he was spending time in jail for a serious offense. We told the truth when we blogged about Jonathan Stebbins being arrested three additional times for a couple of burglary charges and three contempt of court charges. We told the truth about Franklin forcing Corrections Officer Hayes out because she believes that Hayes was providing us information about Jonathan Stebbins. Ms. Hayes never shared any information with us while she worked for the Morgan County Jail.
We told the truth about Sheriff Ana Franklin and her "friends" taking money from the Posse/Rodeo events for their own personal gain. Do you really think taking money from the special needs events has stopped? It hasn't. Do you think that any of those funds went back to the sheriff's office to supplement the sheriff's office? They didn't.
We told the truth when we blogged that Angela Hundley was fired after reporting the 3rd recurrence of cancer to Larry Berzett. Angela was forced to struggle for the rest of her life because of the cowardly deeds from those who have no heart or compassion for others. The same people that Sheriff Ana Franklin promised a brand new truck for services rendered. You know society has a problem when your selfish desires for material gain is stronger than compassion and caring for those who cannot care for themselves.
We told you the truth when we told you that when Franklin fires people she goes for the jugular. When folks apply for jobs requiring background checks or references she gives them an unfavorable performance rating. Just the words 'He/she is not eligible for re-hire' is enough to keep folks from being hired. Franklin loves having power over those less fortunate. Franklin doesn't care about a young family with a baby on the way or any other person she has fired.
Franklin's selfish personal desires to obtain material possessions, money, homes, horses, horse trailers and all the many things she has accrued at the county's expense has taken a toll on our community.
We told you that Sheriff Franklin was taking money from the inmate food funds. You called us delusional. We told you that Franklin was giving less than nutritional meals to the inmates you told us you didn't care because they are only inmates. We told you treatment for the mentally ill was inadequate. You didn't care. We told you medications were being prescribed and dictated by Sheriff Ana Franklin. You called us liars. Each step of the way we have told the truth.
We posted checks from the inmate food funds that you justify the spending even though Franklin told multiple lies about where she obtained the funds. By the way, those are not the first or the last funds Sheriff Ana Franklin has taken.
Keep the name calling going and we will keep the blog going.
