Blogger Comments: Folks it appears that the MCSO FaceBook page has gotten a facelift. It's about time. We have lost trust in Sheriff Franklin and the citizens need to see that change is on its way. This is a good start. The last time we looked at the MCSO website it looked like it has been years since it has been updated. It must be hard for JP to keep up with all of the official stuff with he is responsible for his "other duties as assigned".
As for Douglas Johnson below. We know of no one who has been able to sit in the sheriff's office and talk to our sheriff in years. First, she would have to be there. Which she isn't. We have been to several sheriff's offices over the years to include the Cullman County sheriff who made himself available to talk to us as citizens. Concerns over loved ones was not ignored by the sheriff. This has been the case in Cullman for many years. Some of the old geezers come in to tell the clerks that they want a word with the sheriff and they get it. That's how it is supposed to work. Our sheriffs must make themselves available to the public. Of course, there are times that it isn't possible to have a one-on-one with the sheriff but it shouldn't be an everyday occurrence. For that matter, there hasn't been a time that we called the Limestone Sheriff and not been able to speak with him one-on-one.
We voted the sheriffs into office and we have a right to speak to our local sheriff and to review all public domain written documents within the sheriff's office to include financial records.
Mr. Douglas may want to contact the sheriffs official FB page and try to coordinate a talk with the sheriff instead of what appears to be her personal FB page.
BTW. Has Christian Lewis been recaptured?
