Sanford Police Chief Steps Down

Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee Jr. announced Thursday that he is temporarily removing himself as the city’s police leader.

He acknowledged that his presence as the department’s chief had become a distraction amid growing public pressure for the arrest of Trayvon Martin’s murderer, George Zimmerman.

“While I stand by the Sanford Police Department, its personnel and the investigation that was conducted in regards to the Trayvon Martin case, it is apparent that my involvement is overshadowing the process,” Lee said, only 10 months after coming on the job.

It seems like heads are beginning to roll. Good. Still, while the chief’s resignation is a good start, one question comes to mind: Where the hell is George Zimmerman?
