For the last 3 years Eric Holder has repeatedly denied all prior knowledge of Project Gunrunner, despite Holder’s transcribed 2009 speech posted on his DOJ website (screen capture: HERE) where Mr. Holder clearly states, “My department is committing 100 new ATF personnel to the SouthWest border in the next 100 days to supplement our ongoing Project Gunrunner.”
Too bad Eric Holder won’t have the same ‘jury’ as George Zimmerman.
Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman Sanford, FL Police Chief Fired
(OS) Sanford police Chief Bill Lee, who stepped aside temporarily three months ago amid a national outcry over his department’s handling of the Trayvon Martin shooting, was fired Wednesday night.
City Manager Norton Bonaparte Jr. dismissed Lee, effective immediately.
“I have determined the police chief needs to have the trust and respect of the elected officials and the confidence of the entire community,” Bonaparte said in a statement. “We need to move forward with a police chief that all the citizens of Sanford can support. I have come to this decision in light of the escalating divisiveness that has taken hold of the city.”
National civil-rights leaders, including the Rev. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and NAACP President Ben Jealous, also had demanded Lee’s dismissal because his department did not arrest George Zimmerman for shooting Trayvon, an unarmed black 17-year-old, on Feb. 26.
A special prosecutor later charged Zimmerman with second-degree murder. Zimmerman, who says he acted in self-defense, is in the Seminole County Jail awaiting trial.
Lee, 52, stepped aside temporarily March 22, saying he had become a distraction, and he has been on paid administrative leave since. The night before he relinquished his duties, the Sanford City Commission had voted 3-2 that it had “no confidence” in Lee.
He tried to quit April 23, but the commission rejected his resignation. At the time, Bonaparte told commissioners that the resignation of the chief would help the city move ahead after weeks of controversy. Bonaparte could have fired Lee on his own, but he wanted the commission’s backing.
Meanwhile, back in Corruption Central….
Deep Corruption At The Department Of Justice
(American Spectator) The scope of the corruption is so large as to defy adequate descriptions, in a single column, of each abomination. The reality is that these Obama/Holder minions at DoJ are dangerous to the very heart of constitutional, republican (small ‘r’) government.
