FL GOV Transfers Cop-Killer Case To Prosecutor Who Will Seek Death Penalty

On JAN 9th Orlando Police LT Debra Clayton approached a wanted felon.  The Parolee shot and killed LT Clayton in cold blood.  He later bragged about it on his Facebook page.

After an extensive man hunt this dirty bastard was tracked down and arrested.

Next up, court proceedings.  That’s how the system works.  The prosecutor announced at a new conference…”I have given this issue extensive, painstaking thought and consideration and determined that it is not in the best interest of the community not to pursue the death sentence.”  What??clayton

I wonder what thoughts traveled through LT Clayton’s mind before she was so viciously shot and killed.  Save the “Careful Consideration” crapola for your friends and the sour apple martini set.  The taxpaying public wants and demands justice.  The’re sure not getting it from you.

That’s bullshit!! This scum bag killed a police officer and needs to rot on FL’s death row.

Apparently the Governor thought the same.  He relieved her of her duties in prosecuting the case and assigned it to a neighboring jurisdiction where the prosecutor will seek the death penalty.

Perhaps LT Clayton can rest a little easier knowing that her killer will be tried with the death penalty on the table.

May the family of LT Clayton and the men and women of the Orlando Police Department find peace.
