Blogger Comments: Folks, Sheriff Max Sanders claims the previous sheriff left the SO in a mess. We haven't seen the jail and the condition of the jail but if it is a mess shame on the previous administration. Sanders will eventually get the clean up done. Our concerns are the sheriff's office property. We recommend that Sheriff Sanders along with the other new sheriff around the state conduct an audit of all property both accounted for and unaccounted for (to include SO funds from each account) and then call for back-ups such as the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency or the FBI. How can you run a jail in that kind of mess? If the SO is a mess, the financial records are a mess as well.
We have heard this kind of stories around the state. The Jefferson County sheriff just placed the promotions of 19 employees under the merit system on probation and two other employees promotions were outright rescinded. The new sheriff of Marshall County has enough toilet paper to last three or four years while at the same time he was left with no money for supplies for this year. Some of these sheriffs are shameful.
Some sheriffs take from one account to make a surplus in another so they can take the money and run. They have internal employees prepare verbatim tapes of conversations that are not verbatim. What losers these folks are.
The new sheriffs in town do not want to make the messes their administrations, use inmate food funds, feed inmates food designated for farm animals, and keep unsanitary conditions in the jail.
