Top cop Glenn Theobalds last day at the Miami Dade Police Department?

That's what we were told by one of our sources this morning.  From what we were told, today will be Glenn Theobalds last day working for the MDPD.  We've discussed Mr. Theobald before, he was the chief legal counsel of the Miami Dade Police Department as well as the man responsible for drafting and lobbying for Florida State Statute 817.545  and the creator of the Miami Dade County Mortgage Fraud Task Force.  To say that this comes as a surprise is an understatement.  Take a look at Mr. Theobald testifying on January 14, 2010 before the Financial Crisis Inquiry commission in DC...



After watching Mr. Theobalds testimony, does he seem like someone that's going to resign his post just four months later?  What the hell happened?  Was it the MDPD Green Fund Scandal?  Was it simply the new Miami Dade County Police Department Director James Loftus cleaning house?  Considering the magnitude of what Mr. Theobald has accomplished in the field of mortgage fraud, how the hell was he allowed to resign, if indeed he did?  Who's going to take his place that has his credentials and qualifications?  It's a damn shame.


So what now?  Mr. Theobalds Mortgage Fraud Task Force was well intentioned, but as we know it's performance (at least in our opinion) was less than stellar.  It's a shame that his hard work and effort in creating the task force was rewarded by lackluster performance by everyone else down the line.  


Whatever the case may be, if indeed Mr. Theobald  has stepped down, we wish him the best of luck with his next endevor...

  1. It's hard to support the conclusion that the boss is doing a great job when the people who work for him are not. People on the task force seem not to have been given even the most rudimentary training on RE transactions or how to conduct an investigation. Whose fault is that?

  2. Precisely. The fish rots from the head down.

  3. Theobald and Vecin, are remnants of the previous administration's incompetent-ridden managers that were catapulted to their positions for political reasons and more disturbing causes. The Commission and our infamous Mayor should give Director Loftus full and unrestricted support to clean this upper management cancer as quickly as possible.

  7. 1:49, got the homework asignment, I'll report back with my findings. Thanks again.

    Shame about not recycling huh? 1:49, considering our mutual dislike for showboats, we really need to talk, you'd get a real kick out of who's investigating certain "showboats"...
