Charlie was forced out---he refused to fire the two cops that shot the crazed indian with the knife. I applaud him for standing by his beliefs, but it cost him his job. Now he can fish like he loves to do!!!!
whatever reason all good

Charlie Tiger was PRESSURED to RESIGN or face TERMINATION due to DISAGREEMENTS, where Officers were not allowed to make arrest of the TRIBAL MEMBERS. Tiger is a Top Cop and believes in real police work to Protect and To Serve. Seminole PD officers are being treated as HIGH PAID Security Officers and not allowed to exercise their Police Power and Enforce the Laws. Therefore, the Tribal Members have no RESPECT for the Officers.

Its never easy to please everyone. When you become the chief of police, you have to back your officers (he did) and please the public when necessary. He had to manage an agency with a daily transient population of thousands.

And you can never please everyone.

I think the Government needs to step in and take the Law Enforcement duties away from the Seminoles. The money and the greed in their own Organization has corrupted everyone at the top. They think there above the Law! They even had there hand in the KEn Jenne corruption case, and there's more! The cops Charlie was protecting did there job!

Charlie Tiger was an excellent cop who always did what he thought was the right thing to do even if it pissed off people in power. If there were more people like Charlie we'd be a lot better off.

Here's my take......The SPD took appropriate police action a short time ago which resulted in the unfortunate use of deadly force where a tribal member was killed. The officers involved did the right thing. Chief Tiger is a 100% cops cop & defended the actions of his officers. Unfortunately, it cost him his job. Who knows who else in in the Tribes "sights" for termination. What has gottern into the Seminole Tribe of Florida. I know $$, power, & greed. Pray that the remaining officers are treated with respect. I personally would like to see a law enforcement agency that can operate without the fear of reprisals from the Tribe. We can only hope. Where's the PD pension Mitchell?

You are 100% correct. The tribe wanted those 2 cops fired on the spot which shows you how discriminatory the Seminole Tribe is. If the tribe has it's way and fires the cops, then the State of Florida should step in and here's a way they can do it.

First, if you won't honor a police officers bill of rights, then we will cut you off with certifiying your officers and having them go to our academies and training courses. You can also no longer use our courts and those convicted of crimes on your reservation can no longer be housed in our jails.

Boycott their Casino's. If you want to play the slots, use the 3 casino's in Broward.

B.S.!!! Do you work for the N.Y. Times by any chance? Bet your the one who wrote the story on John Mc Cain.

Charlie certainly doesn't need the money. He has his Hollywood pension, not to mention the money each member of the tribe receives each month.

So, Hollywood continues to take over the Seminole games. They don't get paid that much. What could the big attraction be that keeps them moving over to the Hard Rock scene? I've always wondered what kind of STUFF was moving in and out of those casinos.

He was complicit in covering up the murder of Anna Nicole Smith.
The Seminole Tribe Police Department is currently under federal investigation for quashing evidence they gathered during the investigation that proved Howard K. Stern premeditated and carried out Ms. Smith's murder.

Considering the problems with the Hardrock, (rapes, DUI, robberies) the Tribe needs to get serious about law enforcement. Right now, the Tribe is dumping these cases onto BSO and the ones that aren't do not get investigated. Step onto Tribe land and you're stepping into a 3rd world country with poor protection from the bad guys.
