Ex-Sanford police chief: Fired for not arresting Zimmerman

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.
