Former Sanford, Florida police chief Bill Lee claimed on CNN today that he was fired last year because he didn’t want to arrest George Zimmerman. He says there was a lot of pressure because city officials just wanted him arrested for killing Trayvon Martin as means of placating the public. Lee says he refused, and as a result, he was let go from his position, which was publicly explained as a lack of trust elected officials and the public had in Lee.
