JEFFERSON COUNTY AL: Eighteen people were arrested in a series of raids at Jefferson County gambling facilities earlier this week, including the managers of all four of the establishments.
Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall on Thursday released the names of those charged, as well as the four gambling halls where the Tuesday-morning raids took place. While the facilities are commonly referred to as bingo halls, Marshall said that is not accurate.
“Bingo is played on a card with a group of people,’’ Marshall told AL.com. “These are slot machines located at small casinos.”
“We’ve now had judges sign at least four or more search warrants and we’ve had multiple people arrested,’’ he said. “This was an enforceable action that is part of an ongoing investigation.
The raids were carried out at daylight Tuesday amid an ongoing disagreement between Marshall and Jefferson County Sheriff Mark Pettway’s stance on the issues.
Honestly, do you think these arrests were made because of "rule of law" or Steve Marshall attempting to show the Sheriff? In my humble opinion, the murder rate has more than doubled in Birmingham over the last couple of years.
Am I stupid or seeing it wrong that the more important issue is the protection of lives over electronic bingo? That the Jefferson County Sheriff, who just took office in January, is focusing on getting the violent crime under control first.
But Attorney General Steve Marshall is taking his investigators and ALEA-State Bureau of Investigators away from investigating violent crime and solving violent crime and focused on bingo. That under Steve Marshall and Luther Strange's reign as Alabama Attorney General Alabama has become number one in the entire United States of America for homicides inside the prison walls of this state.
REALLY, am I the stupid one or is Steve Marshall?
