Lake Mary police chief agrees with angry email then backpedals
Apparently Zimmerman does not have a friend in his local police chief. Steve Bracknell, who heads the department in Lake Mary, Florida, where Zimmerman lives, agreed with some pretty intense criticisms of the acquitted killer contained in two angry emails he received Tuesday about Zimmerman's recent altercation with his wife. "Zimmerman is a Sandy Hook, Aurora waiting to happen," the emailer, Santiago Rodriguez, asserted, in an email posted online. "Your job is to protect the communities you serve, and you are failing big time."
Bracknell responded with a lengthy defense of his department, but then threw in, "Your reference to Sandy Hook..............I agree." (Ellipses his.) Bracknell confirmed the emails' authenticity for Think Progress, but later backpedaled from the remarks, telling WTSP that he only meant that Zimmerman "seems to be involved in incidents" involving guns. In the followup email, Rodriguez called Zimmerman a "ticking time bomb." Think Progress reports that Bracknell replied, "on a personal note....I agree," but that email doesn't appear to be posted online. And on Monday, Bracknell had this to say to an LA reporter, per the Los Angeles Times: "Man, it would be fantastic if you have an apartment out there [in California] for George Zimmerman. This guy is killing me."
I did not see any references to that other infamous Resident of Lake Mary, Ray Anthony Lewis, Jr., by this police chief.
If one doesn’t connect the dots look here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ray_Lewis
Note : Murder Trial
Note similarities with GZ.
Maybe they will pressure Chief Bracknell to resign.
It’s not the replacement; it’s another jurisdiction altogether.
This chief is a total jackass for engaging in public comment about a constituent one way or the other. Guess he figures he missed out on his 15 minutes by not being in Sanford where the action was.
Steve Bracknell, Lake Mary Police Chief, Walks Back George Zimmerman Comments: Report
Cops kill all the time. How many Sandy Hooks will they initiate?
Government has completely run amok, from the bottom up to the feds. Bastards.
When I first heard that 911 call I thought they were all in the house, but you can see on the surveillance tape when she makes that call and where. They are right near the truck which is loaded and ready to go.
What was keeping her from getting in the truck with all her stuff and leaving??? Why aren't the police asking the same question??
Instead the drama queen calls in a swat assault on her husband putting his life and others at risk.
If I were a Lake Mary resident I would be calling for her to be charged and they don't need an iPad to do it. There is enough in the police report to charge her. But it won't happen with the current police chief.
If I were George I would demand that the police get the video off that computer or give it back to him so that he can press charges. Frankly I think the police have the video already and it shows Shellie videoing as she goes into the garage and then closing the lid to turn it off -- either to avoid videoing her father attacking George and/or so that she can help her father by hitting George with it.
Either way I would get a lawyer quickly and file for custody of the iPAD, and if necessary, allow her visitation rights. I'm sure at this point it will be another point of contention in the divorce.
