I just thought I would give you a little news that will not make the Andy Shock pro Lag Cabin Newspaper. It seems that Andy Shock got his a.s.s handed to him in court. The case of Brianna Pickard; you remember she gave a t-shirt to a female inmate and was fired and charged with a felony. It seems that Andy Shock and his administration of idiots fired Brianna over her private life and whom her life partner is. So when Brianna talked about filing a law suit against Andy Shock, he and his band of merry idiots filed trumped up charges on her, trying to justify their wrong doings. Well it seems that the Faulkner County Court System seen though Shocks BS and dismissed the charges on Brianna. I can't wait to see how this plays out in civil court!

This situation sounds extremely scary. For the taxpayers of Faulkner County, who will be on the hook for the lawsuit payout, but also for the employees of the Sheriff's office. A man so prejudiced that he would trump up a felony charge to get rid of an employee who has a lifestyle he doesn't agree with......that is scary

There has been a two cases of unlawful termination at the sheriff's office under Andy Shock that I know of, this one and David Hall. That's just the ones I know of. How meany more are there? Word has it that David Hall and his wife are also suing Andy Shock.I wonder if Cody Hilands office will do anything to Shock for filing false charges on Ms. Pickard?

Don't know if Hiland will do anything or not, but the Departmnt of Justice needs to look into this. Firing someone because their gay will get you sued very quickly. Setting someone up and depriving them of their liberty while they are in your jail awaiting bond on a fraudulent charge is criminal. If you are doing it because they are gay then it is also a hate crime

It's absolutely despicable is what it is. I just hope the voters of Faulkner County wake up to all this before the election. I'm ready for the nightmare that Andy's administration has become to be over.

Working at the SO has to be a tough job....you not knly have to worry about inmates sticking a shiv in your gut but you also have to worry about the sheriff sticking a knife in your back cause he doesn't agree with your personal beliefs.

Like I said, the Log Cabin Nwespaper is pro Andy Shock. Not one word in it about Brianna Pickards story about how she was fired over being gay. It stated that the charges were dropped because of evidence, the eviidence was the t-shirts. So she gave a 309 inmate t-shirts because that inmate had none. This is a violation? Let me tell you...John Randell, Matt Rice and Andy Shock all abused the 309 privilege over the years by taking them places, having them wash their personal vehicles and giving them things. Then, only then was she charged after Andy Shock heard she was going to sue! Yea, the court seen through this one! Since she was charged and arrested to cover their tracks, its a federal crime now. I would bet Cody Hiland throws Shock under the bus on this to cover his butt. Lack of evidence? what happened Andy, the sheriff's office lose them like they lost other evidence in the past?

Who was the detective from the SO that did such a fine job investigating this that a judge throws it out for lack of evidence?

It is going to be sad to see a sitting Sheriff be led out in handcuffs of the Sheriff's Office after he is indicted for conspiracy to deprive Pickard of her constitutional rights......but it will be well deserved if true.

I know for a fact that Ms. Pickard and another former FCSO detective have the same attorney........I have a feeling that this show is about to get real good!

When you have one or two people telling that the sheriff'office gave them a bum deal, you kind of have to think that this is someone that screwed up and got fired; now they just have an axe to grind...sour grapes so to speak. When you have dozens upon dozens of people telling the same story at different time, you have to ask "Do we have a problem Houston?" Hell, the news is always wanting a good story, they have one right in front of there face. Why not report it? Here we have a woman that was fired basically because she is gay, and when she went to sue, she was arrested and charged with a felony after the fact! 20 days after the fact I might add. Why wasn't she arrested when confronted by the administration? This has civil rights violation written all over it.

I thought I would give you may 2 cents on this subject, I know it doesn't mean much due to my actions in the past, but here it is.I've read the story and the comments along with it; it states that items had been mailed and from my understanding Cpl. Pickard signed for it or signed approving the money order, than gave the items to the inmate. I'm going on what is based in the story, but I have to say, something just doesn't seem right about this. 1. Why wasn't Pickard arrested when this came to light? 2. Why was she told to quit or be fired, and have felony charges placed on her, why wait 20 days later? Why wasn't the Postal Inspector notified that a felony crime was committed via the U.S. Mail? This all looks like a set up to me, now it has went out of control for someone. Some of you may remember during the last sheriff's election, Andy Shock stated " I'm going to clean out the sheriff's office of immoral people". Was he meaning homosexuals? I don't know, but I do know Brianna Pickard wasn't charged with a crime until it came out that she talked to a lawyer about suing Andy Shock. I have no doubt what so ever Andy Shock fired that girl because she is a lesbian. When this pile of BS goes to court, its tossed out the door for, I believe was lack of evidence? You have the so called items and a signature; and you say its insufficient? Please! They charged that girl because she was suing; plane and simple, and Andy Shock gave the order to Vincent and Randall to obtain a felony warrant. I can't sit here and say Cody Hiland knew what was going on, but based on Cody and Andy's friendship, I would say that he did. If they set Pickard up by mailing a package to bait her, then arrest her, everyone involved conspired to deprive Brianna Pickard of her civil liberties and civil rights. This is big time federal crime. If Brianna's attorney goes to the FBI and the U.S. Attorney's Office to file a complaint; Andy Shock, Loyd Vincent, John Randell, and Cody Hiland all will have a major problem. Like everyone else, I'll sit back and watch this play out.

I have been watching all of this corruption for over a year now with a ringside seat. I am thoroughly pleased to hear that this corrupt administration is about to get what is coming to it. Vincent, Randall, Shock, and all the others that blindly follow but are high enough up the food chain to know what's going on are gonna learn a hard lesson in a hurry when these cases go to court.

I'd like to put a little insight on some things that haven't been mentioned and perhaps avoid mentioning, There's more to it than what's being said about Ms. Pickard giving a t shirt to a 309 inmate, she in fact wanted a relationship with her and the 309 reported it to the administration, now I know the "team Pickard" people will say that never happened but most people know the truth, as far as Andy Shock letting her go because she was gay,,,, no she worked there a long time and nobody cared she was gay, she threw fits to get where she got and was escorted out of the jail a few times because of it. Bobby Brown and Karl Byrd saved her butt for a long time, she absolutely sucked as a detention officer, it has nothing to do about her lifestyle but all about her personality, I worked with her at Unit 2 for a long time, I know how she is at work, she will throw anyone under the bus to make her own butt look good but in the end she just looks foolish, also, its not a good idea to text your boss (the sheriff) while your drunk calling him every name In the book a threatening him with this and that, yeah not such a good idea huh? Anyway, I wish all the FCDC guys and gals nothing but the best in the future.

I too worked with Ms. Pickard at Unit 2, I was never able to trust her since a certain incident with another officer. I was too busy watching my back around her when I was at work. I was sick of it. That is why I left that job as a detention officer. I was warned by several officers that she was someone who was NOT to be trusted, period. I had no problem with her sexual orientation, it was the person herself that I had a problem with.

I wasn't aware of her being escorted out the building the nor did i see it. I to worked with her and for her once. I wonder who could post things that were supposed to have been said to admin... hmmmm.... and the person she is or you say she is still does not give someone the right to violate her rights. And if I know one thing about pickard no she did not want a relationship with this 309. She may have been friendly and a little more friendly then she should have been to inmates because she is just a caring person. But with knowing both the pickards very very well to this day I know they are both very committed to the vows they said. AND another point I may add "team shock" (I'm about to blow some minds) this package y'all try to say she mailed.. she didn't.. her wife did. Now why would her wife mail this package if pickard wanted a relationship with the 309.. that would make no bloody sense! AND even if pickard had mailed the package it still would not have been a broken law. Therefor a warrant should not have been done at all no matter who mailed the packagr.Of course her personality is going to be bashed, that's all they got because they know they screwed up when they arrested her from made up charges at her house in front of her 2 small children... one of which has mental disabilities. Lastly in regards to her being a crappy detention officer im pretty sure her awards, promotions, and accomplishments at Aleta speak differently. But thanks for your opinion.

One thing is for sure, its all going to come out in federal civil court and maybe federal criminal court. At this point it doesn't mean jack if she mailed it or if she wanted something in return, Team Shock f.u.@.k.e.d. up!

What this highlights for me is that we have inexperienced and/or incompetent leadership leading inexperienced and/or incompetent employees.

This incident is reflecting very poorly in the FCSO, Sheriff Shock. I would say Pickard but seeing how the charges were dropped, I am taking for face value she did nothing wrong.

This is going to cost us money that I would rather see being spent on salaries and equipment.

It is time for an election.
