Folks this is old news how long have our lawmakers known sheriffs are taking inmate food funds?

Blogger Comments:

Folks, this is ridicules. Sheriff Ana Franklin took inmate food funds in 2016 and most-likely 2013 -2017.  This practice is not news to our lawmakers.  It has been going on for years.  Every law maker knows the sheriffs' dirty little secrets.  Now the public knows just how wide spread the problems are.

The lawmakers should stop cowering down to lobbyists who support this practice over feeding the inmates in our state.  Feeding inmates is a law as much as the 1930's law is a law.  Nobody makes the sheriffs take the inmate food funds; they made that decision on their own. 

Sheriffs are required to feed their inmates.  I ask again what  is wrong with these people?  Is there slimy greed so egregious than being a humane caregiver and sheriff is overtaken by the greed for easy money and screw the inmates?

As a child we were told that if a stranger approaches you and is cold, dress them.  If a stranger comes to you and is hungry, feed them.  The rewards are ten-fold.  Imagine that person in a cell with no means of warming him/herself.  Imagine that person hungry with no means to feed themselves.  Imagine you are the one in jail.  Imagine you are the one who is cold or unfed.  Is this practice humane?

What some folks may not know is that the inmate food funds is covered under Alabama Open Record Request.  Where there is a law in Alabama for public officials to abide by, there is another law that says something to the affect that if public officials refuse to provide public domain information to the requester the only recourse you have is to file a lawsuit.

Alabama lawmakers won't tackle statewide solutions to sheriff food funds

  2. Why is it Blake gets paid to work but never shows up at the Sheriffs Office and yet he does show up at Wall Mart to work? Is he stealing time still like Bones is with all the overtime?

  3. Follow the money. Thieves can run. Lie cheat and steal and this is what our high and almighty Chaplin of the al sheriffs association has accomplished. Screwed several good deputies. Brought in corrupt thugs. Game over Ana your sweet smile and lies doesn't cut it anymore

  4. It's an election year. They were never going to reform a law that makes them look "anti-cop" now matter how urgent it is.

  5. Well, Steenson and his bashing on this blog has stopped since he has been put in jail. Anyone want him out? He and Ana can spin with a smile when free to do so.
