It appears that the Trayvon Martin case has hit another unfortunate turn. Not only did George Zimmerman ruin his life when he shot the unarmed teen, he also forced another man to lose his job. News outlets are reporting that Sanford, Florida, police chief, Bill Lee will resign today.
Anyone following the senseless shooting case of young teen Trayvon Martin, knows the police chief was criticized for the way his department handled the tragic incidence. It appeared he was defending Zimmerman without seriously considering the facts clearly in front of them.
This has turned into a complete disaster and should force changes in this ridiculous law. It gives untrained civilians the right to kill when feeling “in danger” for their lives, which seems good on paper but not always in “real life” situations.
According to the LA Times Bill Lee is being called the “scapegoat”, but if he was in charge wouldn’t it fall on him?
