i'm a personal friend of eduardo he does not read or write spanish, "i love media" he speaks very limited and most important they did not give him a direct order it was an option. he chose the option not to translate, since he was on probation he was following their policies. their were translaters on duty that should have went, eduardo didn't want compensation, he didn't want to do it period. if the city hired him for being fleunt the 1st thing they should have done, was require him to get certified.
You just contridicted yourself. First you say that your friend does not read or write Spanish. Then you finish by saying that "if the city hired him for being fluent". Did he claim to be fluent when they hired him? If so, then he falsified his employment app and should have been terminated. I don't know about Seminole County, but the Osceola County Courts on expect translations to be made by someone who speaks the language in question a their "native" language. I have never heard of translators having to be certified, even when I've been in court and watched testimony being translated. Perhaps your friend realized that he wasn't doing too good as a probationary employee and knew he wasn't going to cut it. After this, he just looks "sue" happy, he is going to have a really hard time finding another job in law enforcement. This kind of reeks of the female Officer who sued the family of a drowned kid after she fell in their house. She did get fired and can't get hired anywhere, no one wants her.
