Bosque has been fired eight times in his career and has always gotten his job back.
Opa locka’s City Manager David Chiverton said the department fired him again last October and he’s hopeful that this will end as the city is trying to clean up its image.MORE NEWS: Fired Former Miami Police Chief Art Acevedo Files Lawsuit Against City, Commissioners, City Manager
