Ethics and a Tale of Two Counties

Folks, We have here two Alabama Sheriff Offices with a similar issue and a widely and wildly difference. Here's the first one:

BAY MINETTE, Ala. (AP) — The Alabama Ethics Commission says a former sheriff's deputy violated the state ethics law by falsifying time cards last year.
Baldwin County District Attorney Bob Wilters told WALA-TV the ruling could force former Sgt. Carl Griffith to repay more than $7,500. Sheriff Huey Mack said earlier his office's internal investigation found Griffith said he was working for the sheriff's office when he was working a second job, or was not working at all.
The Ethics Commission voted Aug. 1 that Griffith committed a "minor violation" of the ethics law, and that the case should be handled administratively and turned over to Wilters' office.
The prosecutor said the ethics commission also recommended that Griffith be fined $1,000.
The station reported Griffith's attorney did not respond to messages.
That was Baldwin County.  Now let's shift our focus to (surprise!) Morgan County.  Up here we have the same issue multiplied by 1000 at least.  Just three deputies (Wilson, Livingston, and  Robinson) reported hundreds of hours of overtime they didn't work to the tune of many thousands of dollars.  Unlike Sheriff Mack's action to investigate internally, Sheriff Franklin ignored, no, CONDONED what her co-conspirators did.  "We don't need no stinkin' investigation.  We know who done it and we don't care!"   Where was our Chief Deputy who's supposed to be the seasoned professional?  "Don't bother me with that crap!  I quit working years ago."
The blog admits we don't know beans about Sheriff Mack and Baldwin County.  For all we know he diverts inmate food funds, but he took the professional law enforcement action in this case and cleaned under his own doorstep, so to speak.  Once again, Ana and her gang of crooks continue to act as though the law can be ignored and ethics don't count.  How many days left in her term of office?

  1. Goodbye Bones Blake Ron Livingston Berzett. Goodbye to the Goodwin’s But mostly goodbye to Ana Woodard Franklin and daughters. Her Daddys and sugar daddies must be so proud! A criminal sheriff and her gang of which only two so far have been arrested. Cousin and business partner Greg Stenson And one of her boyfriends former ALEA Agent Steven Ziaja. Anyone would be foolish to believe that this isn’t going to all come crashing down any day now! Bye Felicia!!!!!!!

    Goodbye my friend, you've messed up again
    You're going to prison, you're off to the pen
    You've gotten off easy so many times
    But I guess no one told you how to get a life

    The judge wasn't lenient like he was before
    You got three to five and a kick out the door
    The public defender really did try
    Too little, too late, you didn't get a life

    Hey, in Walla
    I'll see you in Walla Walla
    Slap on the wrist? Well, not this time
    Hey, in Walla
    I'll see you in Walla Walla
    Folsom prison is the destination
    Hey, in Walla
    I'll see you in Walla Walla
    Slap on the wrist? Well, not this time
    In the scheme of life, we're all just brothers
    Rehabilitate with all the others
    Well, I'll see ya

    That car looked so tempting, so easy to drive
    Just like that apartment that you burglarized
    You started to run, but didn't get far
    Cause under your arm was a VCR

    Hey, in Walla
    I'll see you in Walla Walla
    Slap on the wrist? Well, not this time
    Hey, in Walla
    I'll see you in Walla Walla
    Folsom prison is the destination
    Hey, in Walla
    I'll see you in Walla Walla
    Slap on the wrist? Well, not this time
    In the scheme of life, we're all just brothers
    Rehabilitate with all the others
    Well, I'll see ya

    Ho ho, not this time my friend
    You'll be in lockdown by ten
    I'm afraid you can't talk your way out of this one, son
    Now four walls are your 24-hour-a-day, constant companions.

    Hey, in Walla
    I'll see you in Walla Walla
    Slap on the wrist? Well, not this time
    Hey, in Walla
    I'll see you in Walla Walla
    Folsom prison is the destination
    Hey, in Walla
    I'll see you in Walla Walla
    Slap on the wrist? Well, not this time
    In the scheme of life, we're all just brothers
    Rehabilitate with all the others
    Well, I'll see ya

  4. Again I reiterate DO NOT SEND CONVICTED felons from Gwinette GA into our yard to inquire about our vehicles in yard. Next time it won't be as smooth. Try harder
