Blogger Comments: There have been a lot of painstaking work that has gone into the blog. We plan on reinstalling our blogs previously removed in the near future. We worked hard to set the record straight. No regrets. We believe that politicians work for us the citizens. There have been a lot of Alabama politicians brought up on charges for their misconduct. Hopefully, more will be forthcoming. To include Sheriff Blakely. Anyone that doesn't know about Blakely's gambling habits must have their head in the sand.
As for the whistleblower, you may wonder what she will do now. Keep blogging of course. Writing a tell-all book, stay family-oriented, and continue full force ahead with our business.
Many of you will say that the whistleblower and Leon rolled. Not so. If you read the Daily it is evident that there was a lot going on in the previous sheriff's administration. Some will be disappointed that these folks got off lightly. Maybe. Those are things beyond our control. We do our best; the legal system does the rest.
Some things that were accomplished is that none of those identified are still in office, and those that chose to follow are no longer in law enforcement. We have a new sheriff who is doing an outstanding job. Last but not least we met some outstanding folks that work for the SO that did the right thing. If you ever have any doubts go back and read the archives of the Decatur Daily, the New York Times, newspapers and magazines around the nation.
The previous sheriff has two years of probation to think about some of the things she did. In addition, 300 hours of community service, and possibly more. The real kicker is that the previous sheriff cannot leave North Alabama without permission. That blows when you are a socialite. We hope the community service fits the crime. We know her previous boyfriend had it made in the shade. We also can't help but wonder if her attorney will ever quit filing additional issues with the Federal Courts. What a spring butt.
