Mayor Says Prosecution Was Politically Motivated

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer claims his prosecution was politically motivated.

Do you agree or disagree? That was the topic of today's Rapid Judgment segement.

Here are our results

3 say Yea 9 say Nay


Check out this excellent editorial in Thursday's Sentinel...

Rogue prosecution
Our position: Brad King showed blatant and disturbing disregard for the process.


What did this little circus cost us the taxpayers?
Probe cost FDLE $45,000
The former suspects agree to help pay part of the expenses of the investigation.

I think you switched the results. I listened to your quick poll this morning, and noted that in fact 9 said NAY and 3 said YEA in the response to the question 'Was the prosecution politically motivated?'

As a result, the audience is being misled to thinking that Dyer didn't deserve the indictment, which in fact he did - he was charged by a grand jury, for heavens sake, not by the prosecution!

WOW!!

What else can be said!!

I am glad I am a resident of Volusia County. If I lived in Orlando I dont believe the Ace at Michigan and Orange Ave stocks enough dutct tape (props to Glenn) to keep my head inside the city limits.

Will we the residents of Central Florida ever know the truth?

Pat could you answer a question. Did Dyer take the deal offered or were the charges just dropped? I was under the impression that the deal was they (Dyer and his Posse) would have to admit they were guilty. Did that happen?

Also, I was wondering if I carry the Brad King "no evil intent" if I can get of the speeding tickets from FHP on the Greenway.

BRAD KING SHOULD BE STRIPPED OF HIS OFFICE (FIRED IF THE GOVERNMENT CAN DO THAT NOW IN LITE OF BOLTON ACCUSATIONS THAT HE THREATENED TO FIRE SOMEONE) AND SENT TO ANOTHER STATE TO PRACTICE LAW (I USE THIS TERM LOOSELY).

"Moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue." I've also heard from a judge, when I was 16, that ignorance of the law is no excuse. Now, the Mayor says there will not be anymore secrecy. Is that an admission of previous "shady operations" within city management? In my eyes, he is the "Mayo Mayor": Slick.
