"A sheriff in Alabama took home as personal profit more than $750,000 that was budgeted to feed jail inmates — and then purchased a $740,000 beach house, a reporter at The Birmingham News found.
And it's perfectly legal in Alabama, according to state law and local officials.
Alabama has a Depression-era law that allows sheriffs to "keep and retain" unspent money from jail food-provision accounts. Sheriffs across the state take excess money as personal income — and, in the event of a shortfall, are personally liable for covering the gap.
Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin told the News that he follows that practice of taking extra money from the fund, saying, "The law says it's a personal account and that's the way I've always done it.””*

Young Turk (n), 1. Young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party. 2. A young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations.(American Heritage Dictionary)
LOCK HIM UP. This fat hedonistic bastard needs to be chained and locked. He is a thief who somehow got away with an unfathomably shitty loophole...which shouldn’t even be a loophole. It’s federal law that you can not deposit taxpayer money directly into your checking account. This fat SOB Tom Entrekin should mow his own law... sounds like every Alabama hick to me in that dumbass state.
I cant believe that he would do such a thing. This is the kind of idiot giving cops a bad rep. He should be prosecuted, and these stupid laws should have been changed a long time ago. Its been the same law since the depression era, this is outrageous !
No jail time....
That fool says FAKE NEWS....
people make more excuses when there wrong... stealing Is a crime....give me a break
Excuses excuses🤔 I'm sure that taught him a lesson🤔 dam thief
Commenting crime you lock people up for darn hypocrites
This is unbelievable and should be unacceptable. There has got to be an enormous amount of health hazards attributed to eating this type of garbage. He should be jailed and any property this scumbag sluggard purchased should be ceased auctioned and returned back to the government...
Motherfuckers... The term rape culture was coined by a male prison inmate. There are twice as many reported rapes against male prisoners than against nonprisoners in the country.
Some spoiled food in the cafeteria is not exactly the highest priority I would have for addressing our treatment of criminals.
That is being done in long island jails as well. I know a woman who was in jail for narcotic posession and saw a box of chicken fingers that said not fit for human consumption. Trump says he got away with whatever the laws allowed.
I think what we need is a lawless society that way there would be nothing to stop this overgrown pig from getting the punishment he deserves, besides is not like laws stop people fron breaking them sooo...
The law isn’t going to make this sheriff accountable for his actions because its the same corrupted law enforcement and judicial system that protects him so he can do this. Let’s stop being surprised when we hear this kind of stuff. The police have always been corrupted, since their existence. The whole entire police force and court system needs to be gutted out before we’ll see any real change. He should be held accountable. He broke the law. How can something be classified as food if you can’t eat it? But he’s allowed to get away with this shit. They protect each other and in turn the cycle continues.
This actually came to light several months ago. But he remained the sheriff until the next election. I live in another county in Alabama and the exact same thing was happening here in the mid 00’s, but it wasn’t widely known because there wasn’t as much social media then.
