I read that Jonathan Lewis, son of Brevard County Sheriff's Office 
Chief Deputy Mike Lewis, was not charged after being found with a 
small amount of cocaine in his shoe and his father's personal handgun 
under the seat.

He also refused to consent to a search of the vehicle after 
Titusville police pulled him over and smelled marijuana coming from 
the car. Marijuana was found.

Had this been your kid or mine, we'd be bailing him out and 
contacting an attorney in preparation to go to court. Our tax dollars 
at work -- those who are supposed to serve us seem to hold themselves 
and their families above the law.

Charges should be filed or Sheriff Jack Parker and Deputy Lewis 
should step down. This is a clear case of favoritism. Make it right, 
Brevard County Sheriff's Office.
