PC Police Strike Again: Florida prosecutor suspended for Facebook post following Orlando shooting

Who said America is a land of free speech? 
Everyday we’re told what not to say or think because it offends somebody or some thing.  Take away words and thoughts and that’s how you get totalitarianism.  

Fox News reports the Florida State Attorney’s Office announced Friday that an assistant state attorney was suspended for violating the office’s social media policy.

Angela Starke, the public information officer for the State Attorney’s Office, Ninth Judicial Circuit, said 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.

I don’t know Orlando so I can’t comment on the specifics this man was referring to.  But, this man is a native Floridian giving his opinion on how he views Orlando.  He could have given his opinion on something else entirely and still get suspended.  This has a chilling effect on everyone.  And that’s not supposed to happen in America.  China, yes, here no!
