Sniper Threats on Orlando Police

Last year, Fernando Trinidad an Orlando police officer pushed a woman down a flight of stairs at a local club. The investigation into the incident ended without any charges being filed against Trinidad- and now it seems that someone is unhappy about it.

In a letter to the Orlando police, mailed to the Clerk of Courts in Sanford Florida, threats were made which included targeting Orlando officers.

The anonymous writer is upset with the way the Orlando Police Department handled Fernando Trinidad's case. The person feels Trinidad should be criminally charged after he pushed Jessica Asprilla down the stairs last year at what was then Club Paris.

The letter states, "Any non-police man or woman would have been beat almost to death by police if situation reversed, then arrested and sent to prison."

The writer goes on say if Trinidad is not arrested and convicted then Orlando police officers will be targeted. "The D.C. snipers will look pale in comparison."
