Sanford, FL Police Chief Bill Lee steps down

Reports are coming in that Sanford, Florida police chief Bill Lee has voluntary stepped down “temporarily” as head of the department.

The problem with this case is it’s getting political, and will move into chaos. I am actually surprised it took this long for us to see Al Sharpton’s name being tossed around.  Also from the article, the Justice Department apparently now has a Civil Rights investigation open on this case now.

Something I did not know,

“It’s extremely, extremely significant because the federal government is not allowed to prosecute just your ordinary, everyday murder,” he said. “Two people fighting on the street is not a federal crime. However, if one person shoots another based on racial hostility, racial animus, that does become a federal crime.”
