    When Zimmerman is found not guilty, does he get his job back?

    Lets see they hauled him in (in cuffs) and got his statement. They got story, checked it against known facts, made sure they could find him and (I assume after checking with DA) released him without charges.


    He just forget to factor in RACE.

    It is odd that they would fire someone who offered to resign and had his resignation refused. It's like: "you can't quit. You're fired!" I wonder if he had changed his mind and withdrawn his resignation offer.

    Yeah this whole thing STINKS to HIGH HEAVEN....

    Another move to satisfy the MOBS wanting heads on a stake. You take a Chief that offered to resign and allow him to remain on his leave of absence only to come back and FIRE him. What in the world did he do wrong? He wasn't the one that made the decision to let Z go without charges. Are they going to fire the States Attorney too?

    Let me ask this of other LEO's here that would know about such things. Will that chief lose his pension that he has worked for his whole life? If so, I hope he lawyers up and buries that city with a lawsuit. That is just plain wrong and it's all done out of fear.

    Man it's scary how much power a cadre of pure THUGS has and can wield at a moments notice. I'm still waiting to see if there are going to be any charges filed on the Black Panthers that put out a bounty on Z's head. Is that legal now in Florida?

    It's sad that the people of Florida have to live under such cowardice in their city and state leaders. Governor Scott is a joke. You gotta think that all this is taking place under his implied direction.

    I guess their excuse for firing the Chief is that he no longer has the confidence of the people or his force. Well no $*** Sherlock. What do you expect to happen after months of talking trash about the man and how incompetent he was? They fired him for no other reason than they wanted to punish him and humiliate him publicly. That serves another goal for them too, that just about guarantees he won't be getting a top tier LEO job in any other city in the USA. I guess he'll have to go back to walking a beat. PATHETIC. These are NOT honorable people.

    Race did play a role in this one. I would think he would have legal options here.

    Probably not. The underlying problem will still be there...

    I don't think the people who fired the Chief will even bother making such excuses. The reason he was fired is to appease Black America, Inc. [/frank discussion on race]

    ...and that's all that it is

    Appeasing a certain group of misguided and coddled citizens is priority #1 in this case. The fools that fired him did the math, assumed that Zimmerman will be found guilty, and took a gamble. The cost of repairing damage done by rioters could be far more than any settlement he will get for being unfairly fired.
    It could be the taxpayers that pay in the end, but i sure hope he takes them to the cleaners.

    there are several reasons he got fired but I know one of them is that everytime the blacks complain the govt(federal or local) caves in to their wishes. It will never end...it is all racial and all stupid. See the blacks are smart enough to know that if the complain, march etc they will get their way, the media is on their side and people might disagree but they want it that way, where we all think twice before defending ourselves. I just find it funny when the blacks call Zimmerman white.


    Now if this would have happened 50yrs ago it would have been a totally different story.

    The chief had only recently been hired within the past couple years (couldn't find the exact date) so unless it was in his contract he wouldn't be eligible for a pension from Sanford. The report did say he is receiving some pay and will be paid earned time (sick, leave, etc) so at least he's not losing that.

    He's better off separated from Sanford. He would never again have the support from the administration. On the other hand the administration showed absolutely no class in firing him and not allowing his resignation to stand.

    It was a cave in by them to "heal" the imagined racial tension.
