Welp. There you have it. We tried reform and it failed. Again.

Time for defunding.

Almost sounds like a good guy. No wonder the police force wanted him out.

I saw this episode.  It turns out that South Beach was crooked.  They were shaking down Davila.  Crockett and Tubbs broke up the whole operation.  There was also Santeria involved for some reason that I can't remember.

received a vote of no confidence by the Fraternal Order of Police and witnessed his deputy chief "verbally assault his executive staff after a commission meeting and did not intervene" on October 1.

I bet if there was video of him wailing both fists on a handcuffed black guy, it would've taken them a year to get around to saying that he acted within police protocol.

"Chief Acevedo is not the right fit for this organization,"

"Acevedo propelled himself to the national stage as a police leader who has been highly vocal in discussions about police reform and public safety, calling for national standards on the use of force by police and marching with protesters after George Floyd was killed by officers in Minneapolis."


Eyup, not a good fit. They just wanted a butt in the chair that would keep the status quo.

What I don't get is why they bothered to hire him in the first place if they just wanted a stooge.

Why do we take criminals off the streets?
To protect society from harm.
Why should we take antivaxxers off the streets?
To protect society from harm.

It's long past time to make a decision on how we want to run the Earth moving forward.  Separate the human people from the human animals.

So he was fired for rooting out corruption, Miami being Miami. The fact that the FOP is a bunch of Trumpikins so he was fighting a two front war didn't help, but was really just the excuse the council used to remove a threat to their gravey.

What other option is there? People want to laugh at the defund movement but like you said we have mounds of evidence that reform attempts keep failing. And fully funded departments with their tanks and riot gear arent making any of us safer.

So what's left?

It seems all cops ARE bad, as any good cops will quickly become EX-cops.

Acevedo appeared to support a Covid-19 vaccination mandate for officers, received a vote of no confidence by the Fraternal Order of Police

The criminal gang plaguing our cities had him removed
 
2021-10-15 4:45:18 PM  
Don't worry, I'm sure all the good cops will fight to have him reinstated.

Wait, they've been fired, too? Oh, dear.

You'll think the police would be the first ones lining up to get vaccinated since they come in very very close contract with people.

Nope.
We didn't call him Ass-Avedo por nada.
Austin cops still loooove to shoot people.
He cut and ran on the problem.

YescAustin and then Houston Before moving to Miami.

More here than the union issue.  He managed to anger the Cuban community by he says unknowingly using slurs against them used by the Castro brothers.

And he presided in Houston over the shooting deaths of a couple when the Gerald Gaines narcotics squad filed false statements to get warrants.

How about we decrease the funding of the Miami police department by 1000 office pay and use that money for 1000 social workers, nurses, and paramedics to deal with the crisis when 50% of the remaining police force all gets covid? Defunding isn't just cutting the budget to save money. Its about moving the money to other line items that will solve the underlying issues better.

Hypothetical -  You have a constant problem of the leaves each fall bursting into flames.  The solution for the last 10 years has been to add more firefighter so now there 3x as many firefighters.   Someone decides to defund the fire department and cut it from the 300 they have now to the 100 they had 10 years ago.  Then they hire 100 guys for parks & recreation to use the baggers on the lawnmowers to pick up all the leaves and 100 trash collectors to haul them to the city's mulch pile.  The city budget is still paying the same number of salaries BUT (here's the big but) there aren't another 100 homes burning down every fall from the leaf fires.  You solved the problem instead of the symptom.

Art Acvedo?  A GOOD cop?!  Good farking joke.  Ask anyone who lived in Austin or Houston how much of a "good cop" he is.  He's a grandstanding jackass who wants to ultimately end up in Congress, so he will hog the spotlight for any positive attention he can get while sweeping his own scandals under the rug.

Like the Harding Street Raid, where a corrupt cop lied to get a no-knock warrant that led to the deaths of two innocent people at the hands of the police. H was still sandbagging the investigation when he left Houston for the bright lights of Miami.

"Acevedo was also caught posing for a photo with a prominent member of the Proud Boys; Acevedo said he did not know who the man was."

He may have had some good ideas but he wasn't that great.

Think it had more to do with accusations against the commissioners.

I wouldn't expect DeathSantis to give a fark, so this guy needs DOJ help to investigate the commissioners.

my point being that none of the "bad guys" in the article are cops.

you have city management and the official statement from the union representative.

at no point did they interview 1 cop, let alone many cops.

it's like asking Bezos if Amazon warehouse workers enjoy their work

I was sitting in a waiting room at the Cancer Center and some dude was watching anti-vaxx vids on his phone at full volume.  I don't know if he was hard of hearing or was trying to make a point, either way it shouldn't have been happing.

WTF?

My guess is making a point. Several times I have been subjected to douchebags playing right-wing AM radio REALLY LOUD at gas stations while they pump gas. When the Mueller report was released, my asshole neighbor put his TV on the front porch playing Hannity REALLY LOUD to give the neighborhood "the truth!".

Stupid people like to be aggressively stupid.

Cop brotherhoods are the reason our police forces are almost universally goblin war parties, staffed by demented, intolerant gun-lickers.
