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.
