Florida city commission rejects police chief's resignation in Trayvon Martin case
cnn.com ^ | 4/23/12

The Sanford, Florida, City Commission decided Monday not to accept the proposed resignation of its embattled police chief, who has been under fire for the handling of the investigation into Trayvon Martin's death in February.

Chief Bill Lee has been on leave since March 22, a day after the commission expressed a lack of confidence in him for how he's handled the investigation. George Zimmerman, who has said he killed the 17-year-old Martin in self-defense, was not arrested after being questioned by police the night of the shooting. He was charged weeks later with second-degree murder.

Earlier Monday, the city announced in a statement that a separation agreement had been reached with Lee to resign. If it was approved by the City Commission, it would have taken effect at midnight.

I hope that’s the end of the nonsense.

I figure that the press leaned on the commissioners, and the race baiters screamed at them, until they caved. And then maybe the people of the town leaned on them the other way, and threatened to vote them out, if they kicked out a police chief who was just doing his job. That’s sheer speculation, but that’s the way town governments tend to work.

Because of political pressure.

Fox just said that a group was in attendance supporting “Billy”. Rev Al was named as being an outside force. People want to run their own town not be intimidated by those outside of it. Two were strongly for him. Showed the woman pictured in an earlier thread asking what he did wrong. Mayor flipped and joined those who wanted to run their own town.

Add this action to the planned rally in support of George on Sunday and I’d say the good people of Sanford have had enough of the “outside” forces....Rev Al Sharpton by name.

Group today were wearing t shirts and wrist band with “We back Billy” on them.

I think people are realizing that the prosecution’s case is incredibly weak.

Good news indeed, that a bit of common sense is being shown for once.

What you are seeing here are some of the people who have had their lives and careers ruined by a pack of Nifong’esque lies setting themselves up for damages in the litigation that will follow when this whole thing blows up in the face of the outside agitators who have misrepresented the facts .

The police chief is setting himself up for a wrongful termination suit against the city if they force him to resign and Zimmerman’s Lawyer is setting Zimmerman and himself up for a big fee and damages award for obvious reasons.

Good evening

Just a side note. If there is rioting in Sanford it won't be pretty, or long lived. Not just because of the rioters, but because almost everyone in Sanford is armed, to include Afro-American business owners.

Another side note, to those across the country who may want to take advantage of the situation: let the games begin...

The thugs and the national and Miami media are still in race card mode.
