Local pastors send letter to Gov. Bill Lee seeking meeting over alleged police brutality
A group of pastors in Hamilton County wants a face-to-face meeting with Governor Bill Lee.
It's the same group of church leaders who called for Sheriff Jim Hammond’s job last month.
They sent the following letter to Governor Lee, which also asks him to address alleged police brutality.
That letter references the case of James Mitchell.
Mitchell claims two deputies performed an illegal cavity search on him during a traffic stop.
The Associated Press reports that Governor Lee plans to stay quiet.
His office says due to a review of the investigation, it would be inappropriate to comment.
