NAACP Plans Course of Action Against Sheriff
Corruption, unfairness, brutality.
They're all topics that were discussed at Thursday night's NAACP meeting in levy county, and they're all allegations made against the Levy County Sheriff.
This week, TV20 has been telling you about Deputy Chuck Johnson, who many in Levy County say was only lightly punished after a series of indiscretions, such as using a racial insult and tasering his own dog. Johnson's father is the second in command at the Levy County Sheriff's Office.
Most of the discussion at the meeting was what the area NAACP should do in response to allegations of preferential treatment made against Sheriff Johnny Smith.
TV20's Josh Rosenthal broke this story early this week, and he went live from the church in Bronson where the NAACP meeting was held.
