BOYNTON BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Boynton Beach City Manager Wednesday released a memo to the public, explaining what she can and can not do when it comes to firing a police officer.

At issue, the late December death of a teen fleeing a police officer on a motorbike. The 13-year-old boy crashed into a median on US 1 and died. Boynton Beach Police, claiming the officer has received threats, is invoking “Marsy’s Law” which shields the officer’s name from release. BocaNewsNow.com, and now the Sun Sentinel, have raised issues with a police officer invoking Marsy’s Law which was designed to protect victims. At issue, is a police officer — on duty and on a public payroll — really a victim if he or she takes questionable action in an official capacity?

Now, Boynton Beach City Manager Lori LaVerriere, under fire to fire the officer, just issued a memorandum claiming that she can’t do anything at this time. The Florida Highway Patrol investigation continues into the crash, and an internal affairs investigation can not be completed — she claims — until the crash case is closed.

Read the memo, below.
