Reference The Decatur Daily Article - Long takes exception to sheriff's claim of $4 million in cuts

http://www.decaturdaily.com/news/morgan_county/long-takes-exception-to-sheriff-s-claim-of-million-in/article_6a1f6af2-9599-52b0-acd0-a1f3a42c2731.html

Blogger Coments:  Folks, we know Billable Barney uses fuzzy math and so does Sheriff Ana Franklin.  Look! It's simple.  Sheriff Ana Franklin spent the past seven years jet setting across the nation playing posse and cowgirl queen.  Sheriff Ana Franklin has been taking money from the sheriff's office accounts since 2013.  She proved how greedy she is by taking $160 thousand out at one time.  One time, people.  Can you imagine?  Franklin was to darn lazy to apply for the much needed grants for the sheriff's office.  So! Who's to blame?  According to our sources Sheriff Franklin blamed the commission and the whistleblower for her downfall in last weeks staff call.  If that is the case we will wear her claim as a badge of honor as should the county commission.  

Sheriff Ana Franklin has spent the last seven years of her career using the same words.  It isn't my fault.  Those words don't work anymore Ana.  It is true that the jail population has increased but it is our opinion that had Ana been given more money for inmate food funds or either other account it would have ended up in her pocket or set aside for her retirement.  

Franklin  went on to say that she isn't blaming the commission for the cuts; she just wanted her department to receive credit for improvements made during her tenure.  Ana Ana Ana all you want is credit for your department?  Why didn't you just stay on the job and try to help those who busted their butts to keep the sheriffs office together while you were out building houses in Saraland and roaming around the country with your posse and rodeo events?  These MCSO employees deserve credit for holding the sheriff's office together but that praise has nothing to do with your tenure.

The most notiable comment in the daily article was the "Our budget has decreased by $4 million, but in seven years we haven't and any constitutional violations or violations of the consent decree, we havent lost a lawsuit, we haven't had a major situation we couldn't handle, and we've increased patrols and arrests". 

The sheriff apparently forgot about being held in Contempt of Court.  Franklin fighting multiple lawsuits has cost God knows how much money.  All the while Billable Barney bragged about getting rich off of this sheriff.

The Best part of the article:

“The sheriff says we’ve cut her by $4 million, and that’s not true at all. At most, it’s $400,000,” Long said. “I don’t want to get in a back and forth with her, but we have the numbers.” “She doesn’t know how to read a budget,” Long said.

Hahahahahahaha.

If her budget kept getting cut, then why did she think it was a good idea to take $160K out of the Inmate Food Fund and invest it in a used car lot (of all things)?

I agree.

Ana is busted. Is Bones and Blake and Justin stupid enough to keep lying for Ana?

Anonymous said...

Yep, they ARE stupid enough! It's worker drones' mentality, protect the queen at all costs, even if that means sacrificing yourself!

It appears from this article that in words we can all relate to is that Anna just is dumb as a box of rocks. I will admit Gregory Steenson is pretty intelligent and is a master schemer and as crooked as they come, but his cuz Anna wow, she needs help. People, I guarantee this is just the tip of the iceberg of things to come, the downfall of the horse backbreaker will continue even after she leaves office as more and more people turn on her and reveal all the slimy, scummy and slutty things she has done. In that dumb box of rocks are 3 stoneheads, Bones, Blake and Powell, who worship the wannabe Rodeo Queen and try to clean up all the horse crap that she leaves behind. FYI:I am not a Robot

Blake has bragged way too much to save his ass. That's what you get when you have a bragging reflex. He buried himself and the rest of the sons of bitches. He told Blakely what he did. Man, why you bragging to outside law enforcement and Blakely ain't alone in Blake's list of brags. Not smart buddy.

I wonder just how surprised Blake will be when the FBI actually does turn up on the front doorstep of the sheriff's office looking for him...

Ana continues to brag that Session has taken care of her. As for the rest of the goons Ana said so long suckers. Ana gave Puckett Sessions number so that he will protect Bones. Why doesn’t Puckett explain exactly how he plans to protect Bones.

So Ana thinks if she removes Bones from the Drug Task Unit and puts him in the office replacing McDaniel doing civil papers and court duty that he will be saved from all his wrong doings in the Drug Task Force and all will be forgiven? No one will ever suspect he did anything criminal? Is that the plan?

I do not believe Sessions "will take care of her". He is honorable, if she has done wrong, he will NOT protect her, he will do what is right, if that means her going to jail, then that is what has to be.

Sessions believes local law enforcement needs less federal oversight, not more. He may not protect her, but no way he damages his pro law enforcement image by having Ana cuffed.

By putting his ass on the road. Puckett does his own thing and Don't need sessions or long. If long don't want to be responsible for feeding the inmates then he would be wise to keep his mouth shut about a job he knows nothing about.

Why would anybody protect corruption? If outsiders could see what we go through on a daily basis. I can’t wait until Ana is gone. Blake and Bones are even worse.

Ray long is another corrupt official that needs taking down. Dig a little and you will find shady stuff he's involved in now and in the past . It's not hard to find if you know what I mean.

Adecca should audit MCDTF because they can't find half of what they received on grants. Maybe someone should call Tom Goree or Mr Ray and request an audit because lots of things are missing and have been since Ana became sheriff and Bones became over the DTF. maybe a call to one of them will get something done.
