Sanford, Florida Police Chief Bill Lee Fired in Wake of Death of Trayvon Martin By George Zimmerman


Something is amiss at the Circle K.

Sanford, Florida Police Chief Bill Lee was fired today in the aftermath of the death of Trayvon Martin and his mishandling of the case. Well kinda in the wake of the shooting death of the 17 year old, unarmed, hoodie wearing teen by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman. Months have actually gone by since the actually shooting took place. Question, why did the city commissioners not accept Lee’s resignation letter back in April 2012? Initially, George Zimmerman was not arrested by Lee, nor charged in the shooting because there were no grounds to disprove his account of the events  that Martin had attacked him. Since then, Zimmerman has been charged with second degree murder. Another question, did Police Chief Lee really mishandle the case or was there really just no evidence proving murder?

“After much thoughtful discussion and deep consideration for the issues facing the city of Sanford, I have determined the police chief needs to have the trust and respect of the elected officials and the confidence of the entire community,” City Manager Norton Bonaparte said in a news release.

“We need to move forward with a police chief that all the citizens of Sanford can support. I have come to this decision in light of the escalating divisiveness that has taken hold of the city.”

Lee will receive a three-month severance and a week’s salary in addition to any earned time off.

As a search for Lee’s replacement is carried out, interim Chief Richard W. Myers will remain on the job.

Lee had submitted a resignation letter in April that said he was stepping down, but city commissioners voted not to accept it.

Sorry, but something seems so wrong with this case. The actions of Angela Courey are frightening and disturbing. Forget the fact that with the evidence that has been presented that it would appear Zimmerman has been overcharged and was time to drop the case as stated by Alan Dershowitz. These free speech comments caused Courey to threaten to sue Dershowitz. So how does the Chief of Police lee get fired this late in the game? The initial prosecutor mysteriously step down (VIDEO – watch Mark Nejame discuss) with a conflict of interest just before he was about to take the case to a grand jury. So what was the conflict? Then prosecutor Angela Courey has the grand jury step down and that she was going to make the charging decision. But not before she prayed with the victims family. Hmm. All this when there were no charges or arrests prior the the liberal MSM and the race baiters entered upon the scene.  Hate to say it, but these just reeks of the Duke LAX rape case and Durham County District Attorney Mike Nifong.

      Something is very, very wrong in this case. And we all know exactly what it is, too.


      PC Bullshit! Discrimination! How is it that GZ is not getting railroaded even BEFORE he goes to Trial?

      With all this BS in the MSM, if I were a Judge assigned to this Case, I would not go lightly on this “Special Prosecutor”.

      This is out of control.

      Also, I’d like to know why and how the Police Chief is being offered up as one of the Sacrificial Lambs.

      Even if the initial investigation could have been handled more thoroughly, where any Laws broken or the Rights of the Victim violated?

      Not that I am aware of. A report was done, and perhaps LE did release GZ a bit too hastily until more investigating could have been completed.

      My point is, that there are never going to be any more witnesses to the actual altercation and moment the Gun was fired. Anyone who is going to come forward already has and most eyewitnesses saw or heard the moments leading up to the crime. Even those that heard the Gunshots, can not testify to seeing the actual shooting take place.

      It is what it is, and I don’t think it is right for George Zimmerman’s Constitutional Rights to be violated. I don’t think the Man is the Brightest Bulb on the Christmas Tree either, but the laws are the laws and he had a right to defend himself when he was being assaulted by Trayvon Martin.

      Perhaps this is a political stunt by the city manager. The police chief tendered his resignation and it was refused by the city council in April, so now is the political pressure so great that he is fired?

      This is doing just what your article states and NGBoston is commenting. Another Nifong episode to make political points in order for someone to get elected.

      If this can be proven, then there are several people associated with the Florida criminal justice system that need to be put in jail.

      I noticed that they never cited a REAL REASON he was being fired. Because they can’t. He followed the law.

      “After much thoughtful discussion and deep consideration for the issues facing the city of Sanford, I have determined the police chief needs to have the trust and respect of the elected officials and the confidence of the entire community,” City Manager Norton Bonaparte
      Who will ever have the respect of the ENTIRE COMMUNITY? It’s fantasy. I’m sorry Bill, there’s a couple of dingbats over on 45th & Lexington.
      They are not confident in you… YOU’RE FIRED!

      but but but…. hey man I was ELECTED! Have you seen OBUMMER’S confidence ratings? He’s still clucking.

      “Lee has been accused of overruling one of his detective’s recommendations to arrest Zimmerman the night of the deadly shooting.”

      Well, knock me over with a feather. Can you imagine that he overruled a guy who works UNDER HIM?

      Bill, why are the detectives off now on Fridays? Well Steve, I don’t agree with it… 7 guys wanted to work too – but Johnson wants to go to Seaworld with his kids. Can’t argue with that.
      What Johnson wants – Johnson gets!

      Have these people lost their minds?

      #5-Carpe-Apparently so.

      LOL @ Johnson wants to go to SeaWorld with his kids.

      2 funny!
