I'm surprised. Don't cops usually get their illegal drugs by either shaking down dealers or raiding evidence lockers?

Wow! What an idiotic statement. You watch way to mucj TV, and seem to belive it is real.

Are we not supposed to be innocent until proven guilty?

Anyone can make a mistake or get involved in something that they should not have for reasons that we can't explain or are unknown to us. If our society starts firing every individual from their jobs for doing something illegal, 90% of the work force would be collecting unemployment.

Let's not forget all the Officers that have died in the Line of Duty while serving and protecting those same people who judge and criticize what they do and the method they do it in.

First, I said that “Anyone can make a mistake..”. I did go to the blog, very nice, though I think that anyone can make a mistake. As a matter of fact, there are Officers who have been charged with a crime, arrested, acquitted, re-hired and promoted within the same department. There are countless stories that can be told.

Also, there are Officers who violate the departments SOP's every day they go to work and its just overlooked by the Chain of Command until the department does not want you there any longer. Then they will do and use anything to find some type of SOP violation to get you out.

I still believe in helping those with a substanece abuse problem not throwing them into the LIONS DEN and watching what happens to them

Hialeah Police Officers try too hard to be Officer's. I support law enforcement but those within the Hialeah Units are need retraining. A Hialeah Officer stopped me because I was going 3 miles more then the average post (38 on a 35). He said he would give me a ticket for no license and registration (but I did have my license and registration) he said all you have to do is just prove in court you have it pay 20 dollars and your good. I argued that I had these documentations on me and then he asked me if I wanted to go to jail and I was suddenly confused. I was confused as to why he did not write me up a ticket for going 3 miles over the limit instead of going to court and lying to the State of Florida? This is something that occurs a lot in Hialeah, why do they do this?

The Irony of this is that this same officer use to teach the D.A.R.E program in my elementary school.... For those of you that don't know what the D.A.R.E program is, is a program that teaches kids to say no to drugs.......

The Hialeah Cuban Mayor and Cuban officials that the people there vote for wipe their culos with all of you , the abusive bad police know this and take advantage of it .
Good police are afriad to utter a word or they are out of a job.

Hialeah probably has lower political and police standards than Cuba.

There is not ONE Hialeah politico that should stay in office but the voters there continue voting for Cuban crap who prey upon them.
