Folks, it sounds like Sheriff Franklin has gone on a spending spree for all of her loyal thieftums. It is troubling that Franklin would waste money on new vehicles for those who should be in jail while the hard-working men and women of the MCSO are driving vehicles that are falling apart. Not to mention the lack of training and education, and much-needed equipment that hasn't been purchased.
What can you say? The more things within the sheriff's office change the more they stay the same.
According to our sources, none of the thugs within Franklin's circle is the least bit worried about the outcome of their situation.
Are we to believe that all of the folks that have spoken up and reported the sheriff and her thieftums are liars? Or we just misunderstood the sheriff's intentions? That the sheriff didn't understand right from wrong? Are we to believe that Billable Barney Lovelace was in the dark for the past 7 1/2 years that he represented the sheriff?
Folks, something has to give. The folks we have blogged about since October 2015 are criminals. Not just common criminals. They are criminals with a badge, they are elected officials, they are information technology specialists hand picked by the sheriff.
Our county cannot begin to heal without getting these people out of office. Lock'em up. Treat them the way they have treated the citizens of this county. We look forward to our travels to Montgomery to sit in on the Steven Ziaja hearing. Steven had every opportunity to do right. He came from a good family and his family left him with all of their worldly possessions which were considerable. He had no need to become greedy. He had a beautiful wife. He gave everything thing up for the likes of Ana. Look what it got him. Hey! Steven is a big boy. He made the choice to become what he is today. A common criminal.
When we look back at these folks, many of them have families. Young families. Families that need both parents. Why would they give it up all for nothing?
