You missed Miami Lakes arresting a man over 100 times a year just to meet quota, including for trespassing at his own home and place of work in front of his boss. His boss turned over surveillance footage to the local news to get cops to stop illegally arresting him to meet quota.

And nobody ever got punished for it.

In that Wikipedia article, the Alex Saleh referenced is the same person as the Ali Amin Saleh who was arrested in the posted article. Something is fishy.

Edit: why the downvotes? It looks like the police are racketeering (meaning they’re extorting or coercing) Mr. Ali and fired the only cop who reported it

He sued the city and a bunch of the cops, one of the cops in the lawsuit felt bad and corroborated his story, and was fired soon after.

PD = Biggest Gang. If you snitch on PD Gang you get fired. Imagine that, cops get fired for doing the right thing. I guess enforcing the law is not the same as doing the right thing as we saw in Ulvade.

They truly are there to enforce law and order, and only do good or save your life if that happens to align with law and order, otherwise your shit out of luck.

This is not that uncommon. I mean the sheer number is, but… Police do it to targets for lots of different reasons. They know you might believe one false arrest but no one believes you on two or three, unless they really know the criminal justice system. There is even a name for it among defense lawyers: “recidivist innocent.”


RantoniFantoni t1_j687z7w wrote

They targeted him and a few others because they gave up on their rights. Because after 2 or 3 of the bullshit stops and arrests on private property with witnesses that would be a slam dunk for a lawsuit in the minds of most reasonable people. But because this dude for whatever reason didn't exercise his rights and didn't fight the abuse, they used him as a door mat to meet quotas.

So, their lawyer is going to argue that if the homeless guy had declined to be handcuffed and taken away to a place NOT 'in their sector', that those two officers would NOT have taken out and used their weapons?

Not all police are bullies, and I completely support removing ANY officer who treats people like this. Any officer who kills should be removed immediately from their job. If it comes out that there was irrefutable proof that they were in danger or taking down an active shooter, they can be reinstated. Of there is ANY question that or was not necessary, they should lose their job And right to carry any firearms.

Actually I see a silver lining here. 10 years ago this would have been swept under the rug and forgotten.

I believe that the smarter police departments have figured out that without the trust of the public, their job is going to get really tough. I think that these departments are willing to hold officers accountable in ways that simply didn't happen in the past.

This is the second time this week that cops have actually been charged with their crimes. I guess it’s finally gotten bad enough?

Ten years ago my white, Republican, multi-millionaire uncle told hubby and I that we should avoid ever calling the cops if we possibly could, because engaging with them for any reason is so risky. When even the rich white guys are acknowledging their lawlessness, it’s bad.

Warning: story about mild sexual assault on minors by police in Hialeah

>!When I was 17 back in the 90s, me, my gf, and a few friends were skipping school at Amelia Earhart. We were driving out of the park when a police patrol car was driving in and stopped us. They had us get out, place our hands on the patrol car, and patted us down. I don't know why they felt they needed to pat us down since we were just teenagers skipping. The cop grabbed my genitals like 3-4 times while patting me down.He didn't pat it or slide his hands over. He full-on grope my dick and balls enough to get a good feel multiple times. They then escorted us to school and ensured we walked in. When I talked to my gf about it, she said the cop grabbed her tits and ass a few times as well. Fucking bastards.!<

>Orfila also told the officer that they had dropped Ortega-Gutierrez off and "roughed him up," Fernandez Rundle said.

According to the off duty officer that found the victim and called 911, one of them admitted to "roughing him up". Given how cavalier this admission sounds, I highly doubt this is the first time this has happened as well.

I'm sure more cases will turn up with both of them or at least the older one who will have more time on. I can tolerate known criminals/felons doing things as we expect it and we just move on. No way in hell I could ever tolerate this from two entrusted with the jobs they have. (Had)

Organized criminal vs. disorganized criminal. They tend to have different motives.

Fuck Hialeah PD. They are some of the worst people you could encounter. Motherfuckers told me they were going to let my dad die as he was trying to put out a fire in our house because they didn't let the fire department in the neighborhood because they were beefing with them. I tried to hand the cop a fire extinguisher and he said nah fuck your dad let him die. I almost swung the fire extinguisher at him but my neighbor dropped me to the ground andasked me what the fuck I was doing, and then I told him what he said. After the fire was out, my dad heard what happened and almost had a stand off with the police department. The Sargeant or whatever on duty tried to calm everyone down saying that it was a stressful situation and people say things they don't mean.

Fuck that cop wherever he is. He doesn't deserve shit.

Another time I got arrested for skateboarding in a park and they raided the park from all angles. They went in the grass and said we were destroying sprinklers. We had never stepped foot in the grass, my one friend had a broken leg and was just trying to learn to push again on his board. They tried to use that friend to testify against me in court saying they had video of me destroying the property. When my friend asked for the footage, my case was suddenly dismissed.

Another time I got stopped. I admit I was waiting in a weird part of the city but I was waiting for a friend to get home and I was in my early 20s and didnt want to go home and wake my parents up only to leave the house half an hour later. The cops pulled up and immediately had their guns drawn. I complied with all their requests. Cop looked at my id and asked me what my name was, he kept asking me and told me I had a fake Id and there was no way that was my name. When he would ask me a question and I would respond he'd walk up and put the gun to my head saying that he didn't give me permission to speak. If I didn't respond he'd get at me for not cooperating. For a good half hour he kept tapping my head with a gun saying he wished he could unload the magazine on me. it was chaotic. No rhyme or reason for what the fuck was going on. Eventually I just realized they were fucking bored and we're doing that to keep them entertained. I just went home after that. I was exhausted, I told my parents the next morning and my dad almost was close to going and finding the cop.

This city has constantly had corruption issues with the police department and they're routinely some of the shittiest people I've met. Miami Dade PD look like saints next to them.
