Who taught them to drive?
I was more than a little shocked by what I read regarding the Morgan County Commissioners’ wish to exclude the Sheriff’s Department from the benefits of an office area that is spacious enough to house their department, and the reluctance to update their supplies and equipment like everyone else.
It seems to me that this department in particular is being singled out for mistreatment.
Why would you not want the Sheriff’s Department, which is responsible in large part for the community’s safety, to have the most up-to-date and modern facility and equipment possible? Out of all of the offices involved, I would say the departments that deal with emergency situations on a daily basis should take precedence over those that do not.
It sounds like there are some hidden agendas in play in the commission when it comes to making decisions regarding the Sheriff’s Department. I thought those in public office were to be impartial and base their decisions on what is best for the community, not what appears to be personal likes and dislikes of individuals.
In many cases that I have read about recently, it appears the commission’s priority is to force out or make things difficult for anyone who does not jump on their band wagon. Who is driving that wagon any way and where did they get their license? Is there any other office to keep them in check?
Are all of these decisions and statements that we are reading about truly decisions that are to be made by the Commission? Where does the power trip end?
