    The Sanford City Commission passed a vote of "no confidence" in police Chief Bill Lee Wednesday night.
    City Manager Norton N. Bonaparte Jr. will decide whether to ask for the chief's resignation or fire him. If Bonaparte decides to do neither, he can then be held accountable for any future problems with the chief.

    I wonder if Mr. Bonaparte's middle initial there 'N' stands for Napoleon? Gestapo police and Napoleon managing the city, wtf Sanford

    I just saw Bonaparte interviewed. He has sole power to fire the police chief.

    The vote of no confidence, then, was predicated on the Chief’s poor handling of the politics of the issue, not the law.

    If the Chief had arrested Zimmerman to provide political cover, he’d be breaking the law.

    Fortunately the Chief made the correct – if difficult – choice, he followed the law, although doing so may indeed have cost him his job.
