ORLANDO, Fla. — Orlando police chief John Mina says he is "furious" that State Attorney Aramis Ayala will not seek the death penalty for accused cop killer Markeith Loyd, according to Orlando tv station WESH.
Loyd is accused of killing his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Sade Dixon, and Orlando Police Lt. Debra Clayton.
The death penalty was ruled out by State Attorney Aramis Ayala.
Orlando's WFTV reports that State Attorney Aramis Ayala won't pursue the death penalty against murder suspect Markeith Loyd or in any other cases, she said Thursday morning during a news conference about her decision.
"I have given this a lot of thought, and it's become clear that pursuing death-penalty cases is not the best interest of victims' families or justice," she said.
At the same time, Rhetta Hussein, writing for the Black Politico editorializes that According to the aerial view of Loyd’s capture, the suspect crawled out to the officers, surrendered and ‘cowered like a little girl.’
During Loyd’s perp walk, he shouted, “They beat me up. They beat me up. They beat me up.”
Newly elected State Attorney Aramis Ayala, who ran as a candidate funded by George Soros, the financier of the Black Lives Matter movement, can’t seem to find sufficient evidence to charge any of the Officers with excessive force in this case. Not only that, at this time, she’s not even investigating excessive force against Loyd. Read the previous paragraph again. Does that even make any sense? The answer is no.
WFTV reported on the afternoon of March 16 that Florida Gov. Rick Scott was “outraged” over Ayala’s taking the death penalty off the table and called for Ayala to recuse herself from the case. When she refused, Scott removed her from the Loyd case and appointed State Attorney Brad King.
“Let’s remember, Markeith Loyd is accused of executing a brave law enforcement hero and murdering his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Sade Dixon. Orange County Sheriff’s Deputy Norman Lewis was also killed while actively searching for Markeith Loyd following these heinous murders. I am outraged and sickened by this loss of life, and many families’ lives have been forever changed because of these senseless murders. These families deserve a state attorney who will aggressively prosecute Markeith Loyd to the fullest extent of the law, and justice must be served.”
Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said: "State Attorney Aramis Ayala’s decision today sends a dangerous message to residents and visitors of the greater Orlando area. Furthermore, it is a blatant neglect of duty and a shameful failure to follow the law as a constitutionally elected officer.”
Ayala is a graduate of the University of Central Florida Central Florida. She apparently got her law degree from University of Detroit Mercy. She also lists the University of Michigan on her resume. Her on-line credentials provide no further educational experience.
In an interview with the alternative media Orlando Advocate, Ayala listed her job history as follows:
Polk County (FL) State Attorney’s Office: 2 1/2 years
- As a prosecutor she once experienced a member of law enforcement lie on the witness stand, and it disillusioned her.
Assistant Public Defender in Orange County: 2 1/2 years
Professor at FAMU School of Law, Orlando FL
The Orlando Sentinel reports that Ayala's husband, David, served seven years in prison on drug conspiracy and counterfeiting charges before they met.
Her husband now works as a business account manager for a phone company and has an associate's degree. They have two daughters together — Aliyah and Alanah.
