“Downtown Orlando has no bottom.
The entire city should be leveled.
It is void of a single redeeming quality.
It is a melting pot of 3rd world miscreants and ghetto thugs.
It is void of culture.
If you live down there you do it at your own risk and at your own peril.
“If you go down there after dark there is seriously something wrong with you.
Disney does everything in its power to shield visitors of Disney from its northern blight.
That doesn’t change reality.
Disney may be the happiest place on earth but Orlando is a national embarrassment.
If this is an act of domestic terrorist it is so important that we don’t publish
the religion, name, or motive of the terrorist as not to offend anyone.”

Kenneth Lewis, an assistant state attorney in the Office of State Attorney Ninth Judicial Circuit, was suspended June 17, 2016, after writing a post that slammed Orlando, following the Pulse Nightclub terror attack.
A Florida assistant state attorney has been suspended, after writing a Facebook post that slammed the city of Orlando following the Pulse nightclub terror attack, the state attorney’s office announced Friday night.
“Downtown Orlando has no bottom,” assistant state attorney Kenneth Lewis wrote on his Facebook page last Sunday evening — less than 24 hours after the tragedy — according to ABC Orlando affiliate WFTV. “The entire city should be leveled. It is void of any redeeming quality…It is void of culture. If you live down there you do it at your own risk and at your own peril.” The post continued to paint Orlando and its residents in a negative light.
A spokeswoman for the State Attorney’s Office, Angela Starke, said Lewis’ post violated its social media policy.
“Kenneth Lewis, an Assistant State Attorney in the Office of State Attorney Ninth Judicial Circuit, was suspended today pending further review,” Starke said in a statement.
She explained, “Mr. Lewis violated the SAO9 social media policy. The social media policy was adopted and implemented on February 20, 2015, as part of SAO9’s code of conduct. Every employee is required to sign the policy. Failure to comply can result in discipline up to and including termination.”
