This is a step in the right direction. In Marion County we just need at ax (not ask) Frank.

342,000 for Sheriff Anderson? That kind of money for someone we never saw or heard from for a year?

aThe citizens got fleeced and he will continue to collect for doing nothing.

Folks, that is more the the President of the US of A makes.

Marion County Sheriff is over paid liberal just like Carson was. If he was a white republican making that kind of money they would screem racism...

Wow, I did not know this kind of thing went on in this day and age. The Sheriff of Nottingham jumps to mind, keeping his portion of the tax till for his hard work. And then for the Sheriffs Associtation to say it is an incentive to collect the undo paid taxes? Here is an incentive... how about "DOING YOUR JOB!!".

What next? I didn't arrest the guy because I didn't have any incentive? I didn't leave my office because I didn't have any incentive?

What happens when the criminals start giving the Sheriffs more incentive NOT to arrest them? Isn't that liken to extortion? Or seeing that bad cop on TV taking bribes from thugs and stealing money from street hustlers? Asinine!

About time! Everyone should have a salary -- and that is IT!

Let's see how this gets screwed up by the people who are supposed to represent us.

This incentive pay has been around for many years. This has nothing to do with Frank. He just collected like all the other before him.

Why do we have to wait intil 2011 if it gets passed? That is 3 years away. The city of Indianapolis needs that money now, it could help cut property taxes.

Of course the sheriff's income should be cut. I could come to Indiana tomorrow and find 100 people that would do the job for $75K. And these would be competent people. Why give some guy a license to steal?

Most people don't realize that is just ONE bonus. He still gets a substanial salary, plus the other legal bonuses, plus the perks, plus control of the Commissary Trust Fund which is in the millions. This is not even mentioning any of the possible illegal kickbacks from vendors and service providers.

Jack Cottey is still using all the tentacles of corruption he has on Marion Co. politics.

Anderson is like a Mother Theresa compared to Cottey, but he likes his money.

You must be uninformed. Cottey was a republican and White, and made just as much legally, and a lot more under the table. People just said "oh shucks".

Cottey is now a vendor for the jail system and is still sucking the county dry through his cronies like Brian Barton and Lincoln Plowman.

There is just a bunch of racist here. Don't like no black man making some change. Don't like no black man running things and giving orders to punk acted white boys.

Frank runs the jail from office. The black men turn the white prisoners in to jail punks and ruin them for their white women folk.

It's about time!!! Pass the legislation or face the wrath of the people. This is absolutely ridiculous that the sheriff of any county in Indiana could make this kind of money by ripping it out of the pockets of taxpayers! Anderson should be ashamed! His term is coming to an end, thank god.
