Thank God for the fed gvmt and other NON Hialeah police depts who watch Hialeah because it is impossible to fathom lower police standards and lower political stadards than Cuban run Hialeah.

Hialeah cop and wife charged with gun trafficking

A current Hialeah police officer and his wife, a former officer who worked for West Miami and Golden Beach, were indicted for illegally trafficking guns, according to law enforcement officials.

Rafael Valdes is also accused of making a “material false statement” about the sale of guns in the investigation which included the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; Broward Sheriff’s Office; and Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

I have been in 3rd world countries with greater ethics in police dept and way bettr politicians than Cuban run Hialeah.

"Rafael Valdes is a 16-year veteran with the Hialeah Police Department, police said. The force released a statement about the arrest Friday"

"The Department of Justice said the husband and wife were in the business of dealing firearms without a license. Between 2005 and 2012, the pair allegedly sold guns over the internet to people in 44 different states."

Anybody who lives in Hialeah knows Hialeah cops are low IQ, low morality, gutless cockroaches.
I once called them when I saw a burgler climbing over a neighbors fence at night. The cops showed up and decided they didn't want to have to climb that fence to go after him, so they just drove off.
They're just cowards with badges!

Some are good and some are as corrupt as they are useless but with the type of third world politicos which make up Hialeah how can anyone be surprised.

I actually saw two of them, look the other way as a pick up truck which was rigged into an illegal tow truck with NO license plate, picked up a car.

I do feel bad for the few good police there because if they dare utter a word about corruption, pay offs and cops that hang out all shift, their lives become a hell.

I know a cop who left that place and in another dept, he told me horror stories but again some are good and I feel bad for them.
