Benjamin Crump, a lawyer for Martin's family, criticized the commission for not letting Lee step down.
"Sanford residents deserve quality leadership in law enforcement who will handle investigations fairly for all people," he said. "If Chief Bill Lee recognized that his resignation would help start the healing process in Sanford, city leadership should have accepted it in an effort to move the city forward." .............
Two of the commissioners disagreed with Crump.
.....................Mahany, for one, said Monday that reports of gaping rifts in Sanford along racial lines have been vastly overstated, adding, "I don't think Sanford needs healing."
And Jones, the other dissenting commissioner, blamed outsiders for fanning the flames.
"It is not Sanford residents who created this firestorm," he said. "It was brought in from the outside. We all know it."
Good for them.
