      It’s called “Sensationalist reporting” often used just to make a brief point usually regarding a previous or a future stance to be made by the writer . . . nothing EVER newsworthy . . .

    Corrupt cops in Miami? Corrupt police chief? Corrupt mayor? Hell everyone and everything in Miami is corrupt, even my front porch.

    Ok. Aside from this teaser, where is THE REST OF THE STORY????

  7. Miguel says:

    The Rest of the Story…is that it is still under investigation and things overlooked are being swept under a rug some where!

    There is no longer a real Miami, Florida . . . South Florida is either North Cuba or East Haiti depending on the city and neighborhood you are in . . .

    Criminals with badges in Flo-ri-duh, imagine that? Miami has pretty much been at the top of the corruption list ever since they started hiring anyone who could speak Spanish without checking their background after it was overrun with Cubans in ’79. Things sure aren’t getting any better. The best part is that these crooks/cops seem to always get to keep their pension in the Police State that is now America. Nice.

    The major problem with cops in general is that they protect the bad cops rather than get rid of them and treat citizens as the enemy. Protect and Serve? More like Pillage and Intimidate.

    This is more proof that the Miami police is operating with Nazi tactics and above the law. This is why they do not want law abiding citizens to video tape them. No video no evidence..

    How to remedy the problem :
    Teach children the billof rights.
    Repeal the Patriot Act.
    Change the election Dept Ballots to ENGLISH ONLY!(If you can’t read english you don’t know enough about how gov. is supposed to work to vote intelligently;no other country has multilanguage ballots,including Hati and Cuba.)
    As for the good Peace Officers keep up the good fight!
