Florida county suspends worker who said prosecutor should be lynched for refusing to seek death penalty
A public servant sparked a Facebook flap for saying Florida's first African-American state prosecutor should be lynched for refusing to pursue the death penalty against an alleged cop killer.
The Seminole County Clerk of Court suspended Stan McCullars — with pay — after the assistant finance director thumbed an offensive remark about Orange-Osceola State Attorney Aramis Ayala on the Orlando Sentinel's Facebook page.
The embattled employee said Alaya should be "tarred and feathered if not hung from a tree" for protesting capital punishment in the Markeith Loyd case, according to a screenshot shared by the Sentinel on Monday.
Her defiance prompted Gov. Rick Scott to pull her off the murder case on Thursday.
