What a difference a day makes. It seems that the black community is still in shock because of last night's arrest if Friendship Baptist Church pastor/teacher Gaston E. Smith. He is accused of stealing $10,000 in community money through the non-profit group, Friends of MLK.
The story broke first on WFOR4 and was picked up by the Miami Herald. Smith, generally regarded as a nice guy, was called a thief by police. Surely there is a tie to his arrest and the investigation of Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones. The plot thickens and it stinks.
Smith's attorney said a lawsuit may be filed in his client's defense. Stay tuned.
