MONTGOMERY: Marshall sent Jefferson County Sheriff Pettway a letter in mid-March saying the sheriff's role is to enforce the law and it's the court's role to interpret it. In response, the sheriff is deferring to local law enforcement to enforce the law. He also says electronic bingo is a misdemeanor crime and feels it’s too expensive to use resources to prosecute it.
Attorney General Marshall tells us if the sheriff doesn't act, his office is ready to step in.
"It’s my hope again that the sheriff does his job and that's to be able to enforce the law in Jefferson County.
Second we have the ability because of the laws in the state of Alabama for the Attorney General to act. We're prepared to act to stop illegal activity,” Marshall said.
Now from the Department of Justice Report on Alabama Prisons. Which according to the report, ALABAMA has finally gotten number 1 in the entire United States of America.
Alabama is NUMBER ONE in homicides in the prisons. NUMBER ONE in the entire United State of America. Thanks Steve you have made us number one.
Inmates in Alabama’s aged and dilapidated prisons endure some of the highest rates of homicide, suicide and rape in the country, the report found.
“The problem within the correctional system did not occur overnight...House Speaker Mac McCutcheon, R-Monrovia.
Steve Marshall was appointed Alabama Attorney General February 2017.
Because the Jefferson County Sheriff said he was concerned with "violent" crime and not electronic bingo, Attorney General Steve Marshall issued a statement being critical of the Jefferson County Sheriff.
Being critical that for some reason the Jefferson County Sheriff believes getting violent crime under control is far more important than electronic bingo.
In a prepared statement Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall makes the following statement:
Second we ( Alabama Attorney General ) have the ability because of the laws in the state of Alabama for the Attorney General to act. We're prepared to act to stop illegal activity,” Marshall said.
Ladies and Gentleman, if Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall has the ability and authority to act, then why in the hell is he not acting on violent crime. Half of the homicides in Alabama Prisons have occurred under his tenure because one report read for the past five and half years. That has been 100% Luther Strange and Steve Marshall.
So why has their focus been electronic bingo and not violent crime?
Why is the Alabama Attorney General ( Strange and Marshall ) more focused on electronic bingo then they are on violent crime?
Perhaps the Jefferson County Sheriff, who can conduct investigations equally as the Attorney General, ought to assign investigators to why Strange - Riley - Marshall had rather see people brutally murdered across the streets of Alabama and in the prisons and turn blind eyes, but do not get caught playing bingo.
Either I am an idiot or they are.
STATEMENTS FROM DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE REPORT
“The problem within the correctional system did not occur overnight, and they cannot be resolved overnight, but we are determined to address them. Like any major undertaking, tackling this issue will be a combined effort between the governor’s office, the legislature, and the attorney general’s office.” House Speaker Mac McCutcheon, R-Monrovia. “The problem within the correctional system did not occur overnight...
The report, nearly 60 pages long, found reasonable cause to believe that Alabama’s Department of Correction regularly failed to protect inmates from sexual and physical violence perpetrated by other inmates.
The “theme” of sexual abuse as a consequence of debt to other prisoners is so common, according to the report, that some incident logs specifically highlight a prisoner’s debt history.
Other examples, some among the dozens of violent assaults cataloged in the DOJ report, found that inmates were also sexually abused as retaliation for having previously reported abuse.
The assaults, the report found, showed a “flagrant disregard” for the inmates’ rights to safe conditions.
The DOJ’s wide-ranging investigation found not only that prisoners were susceptible to “an enormous breath” of sexual abuse and assault but other types of violence as well, including gruesome murder and beatings that went without intervention.
One final point... we have some boneheaded Judges and Parole and Probation Officers think the SAP ( Substance Abuse Program ) run by these same folks in charge of the Alabama Department of Corrections is better then Teen Challenge.
With all of this going on in the Alabama Department of Corrections, how can a logical person even debate that SAP is better than Teen Challenge?
Again, either I am a idiot or someone else is...
