The moment I heard State Attorney Ayala announce she wouldn’t seek the death penalty in the murder case of Markeith Lloyd, I knew this would be an Attorney who was here to serve self interest instead of seeking justice on behalf of citizens.
To add fuel to the fire, Ayala further announced that her office would not seek the death penalty in future murder cases. Not only was she so arrogant to deny victims’ families in Lloyd’s case the option to consider the death penalty, but to predetermine no death penalty for future cases is a miscarriage of justice.
Personally, I’m thankful Gov. Rick Scott removed her from the Lloyd case and the remaining 21 murder cases. Ayala has made it clear that she’s not ready to uphold the law and use all the tools available within the law.
Keeping her in office is a complete waste of our time and tax dollars. This is a person who shouldn’t be in anybody’s courtroom. I call on Ayala and encourage her to do us all a favor and RESIGN!
