Writing the Truth

Assistant State Attorney Kenneth Lewis was disciplined for a Facebook message following the Orlando massacre that left 49 dead and dozens wounded Sunday.

According to WESH-TV, Lewis wrote a scathing Facebook post decrying Orlando right after the shooting.
"Downtown Orlando has no bottom. The entire city should be leveled. It is void of a single redeeming quality. It is a melting pot of 3rd world miscreants and ghetto thugs. It is void of culture. If you live down there you do it at your own risk and at your own peril. 
"If you go down there after dark there is seriously something wrong with you. Disney does everything in its power to shield visitors of Disney from its northern blight. That doesn't change reality. Disney may be the happiest place on earth but Orlando is a national embarrassment. If this is an act of domestic terrorist it is so important that we don't publish the religion, name, or motive of the terrorist as not to offend anyone."

The Florida State Attorney's Office has a social media policy. Kenneth Lewis violated that policy by writing what he thought about inner city Orlando.  Kenneth forgot that the emperor needs to be reminded that he's wearing a fine suit of clothes. It's the only way that the machine can survive.

And so it goes.
