Comments-It's interesting that this incident was not Tweeted by "Our" Franklin Police Department. I did hear that Warner is the only person qualified to Tweet and he was too busy acting ass the assistant chief at the time and 2 days later , this has yet to be Tweeted. Considering how other people are bonded for far more than 500 dollar$ , it does appear this police officer received special consideration. Why is it "Our" Police Department always seem to be hiding something from "US"? Morris will continue being paid despite being fired. Hmmmm.

Pete-To bad they still have'nt arrested Richards for his assault on various people.The only reason Morris was arrested was because there was more than one complaint against this guy that morning.Meanwhile Richards continues to prowl the streets doing as he pleases
Mac-What a joke....seriously a $500???? I am puzzled but that is a violent crime. I have been arrested for disorderly conduct which was non violent and the bond was $1000. I guess thats what happens when you are a officer of law.earlyx-Steven Morris is part native american ya'll, he is from the slap a hoe tribe!!!
Pete-Maybe Richards is also from the SlapAHoe tribe to
