Florida Governor has slapped down one of the states most controversial prosecutors. Rick Scott took the extreme action of stripping 21 pending murder cases away from Democrat Aramis Ayala today after she publicly stated that she would no longer seek the death penalty in murder cases. Scott placed the cases under the control of neighboring judicial circuit State Attorney Brad King.
Attorney Ayala has become a major embarrassment to the law and order governors office after she recently announced she wouldn’t seek the death penalty against Markeith Loyd or any other defendant. Loyd, a Black petty criminal, is currently charged with killing an Orlando police lieutenant and his pregnant ex-girlfriend earlier this year in an Orlando Wal-Mart. Scott took the Loyd case away from Ayala last month and reassigned it to King.
