Holes were drilled through government-issued smartphones and leftover rice was poured down the drain, among other things. It's a longstanding tradition that sheriffs aren't typically held accountable for.

Buying a ton of TP and trash bags is amusing.

Upperdecking all the toilets is hilarious.

Stealing $750,000 worth of funds initially allocated to purchase food for jail inmates between 2015 and 2017, and purchased a $740,000 beach house?

Looks like it's prison time for trying to starve people in your custody.

Alabama - Pride of the South and always eager to be an example of why a lack of progress isn't a good thing.

Remember when Clinton's people took all the W keys off the White House keyboards?

When I moved here, there was a sheriff named Fate Thomas who ruled the city. Get busted with a kilo of coke but are one of the hundreds 'deputized' by him? Get off scot free (but he kept the coke. I know someone he let off .. a Nashville singer and supporter).

He did the same kind of stuff you mentioned. Stealing food money and using it to build a cabin, stock his fundraising BBQs and the like. Went to prison for it too.
