A juror from the Veldora Arthur trial leaves us a comment and some comments from the City of South Miami Leo Affairs message board regarding the chief...

You never know who's reading our blog, a couple of days ago we get this comment regarding former City of Miami assistant fire chief Veldora Arthur's federal mortgage fraud trial...
I served on that jury. I am so glad we saw through all the lies and deceit. I cannot believe she got to keep her pension and did not pay restitution!

Imagine that, a juror from her federal mortgage fraud trial not only reads our blog and but seems pissed that she got to keep her pension and didn't have to pay any restitution to the banks that she ripped off!  Sweet!

Now, let's take a look over at the City of South Miami Leo Affairs forum and read some of the comments regarding the Chief, Orlando Martinez de Castro and the matter of his wife's company doing business with the city...

Talk about corruption. This chief seems like the f--kup of the decade! Who on earth would ever trust a loser like this?

Is FDLE and the CJSTC looking into this? How can this guy be a Chief of Police? They should relieve him of duty immediately.

The one that can, the city manager, will not. The questions the mayor and city commissioners must ask of the city manager are these: What did he know about this clear violation of the city’ charter? When did he know it? How does he intend to correct the violation?

OK!  The members of that forum go further and on this thread suggest that someone's going to end up losing their job as a result of this matter...

He cannot! Martinez-De Castro; city manager Hector Mirable knew, they all knew these transactions blatantly violated the governing city charter provision. If the mayor and most of the commission had a shred of courage and decency in them, they would fire the most culpable parties. They are cowards; worse complicit. Guess the appearance of impropriety is no longer or never was a concern at South Miami?

This is not going away! So who’s going to fall on the sword? This is incestuous; it is “Malum Prohibitum!”

No, that will not do! Unless city leaders are willing to sever the manager and chief’s contracts and consequently payout significant sums to both men, an active duty sacrificial lamb is required. Ana Baixauli is it!

Wow.  I don't know much about the inner workings of the South Miami PD, anyone care to comment?


  1. Ms Arthur was sleepinp with the Fire Chief (Maurice Kemp). Rumors say she had a baby from him ONLY Rumors.Who was on the Pension Board? Somebody called in some favors. Its a fuking joke that she kept her pension...

  2. When things like this happen and nobody does anything about it,we all know the reason. Everybody its involved.If not so proof it!!!!!!!

  3. Del Rey and Mirielis

  4. Not sure what's up but it looks like someone took the delete hammer to the LEO Affairs forum again. The last post on that thread I see is from 3/25.... It appears they have the same "bug" they had a few months ago when another batch of negative comments directed towards the chief got deleted.

    4 CITY COMMISSION MINUTES March 15, 2011 4. Commission Reports, Discussion & Remarks (25 minutes)
    Vice Mayor Newman With regard to former City Attorney, Mr. Feingold, she said that she was very concerned about his interference with the appointment of a resident to the Planning Board, referring to Lorie Yanoshik; she said that it is not the place of a City Attorney to get involved in these things; furthermore, she said that even more disturbing than his involvement on this, was the very threat that the South Miami Hospital could put pressure on FP&L to terminate Ms. Yanoshik’s employment of 27 years, and unfortunately, she was in fact terminated from her job with FP&L two days after her appointment to the Planning Board in South Miami; She then referred to Ms. McCain, saying that in her opinion, the act of permanently trying to remove her from the Commission violated her First Amendment rights and that she will never support that. Mayor Stoddard: With regard to the above issue with Ms. McCain, he said that there was a case that has been referred to the Commission by Mr. Goldstein which shows that they cannot do that; therefore, he said that from this point forward they will take incidents of behavior as they come, unless further case law becomes apparent; 6 CITY COMMISSION MINUTES March 15, 2011

  7. CHAPTER 112
    112.311 Legislative intent and declaration of policy.-
    (5) It is hereby declared to be the policy of the state that no officer or employee of a state agency or of a county, city, or other political subdivision of the state, and no member of the Legislature or legislative employee, shall have any interest, financial or otherwise, direct or indirect; engage in any business transaction or professional activity; or incur any obligation of any nature which is in substantial conflict with the proper discharge of his or her duties in the public interest. To implement this policy and strengthen the faith and confidence of the people of the state in their government, there is enacted a code of ethics setting forth standards of conduct required of state, county, and city officers and employees, and of officers and employees of other political subdivisions of the state, in the performance of their official duties. It is the intent of the Legislature that this code shall serve not only as a guide for the official conduct of public servants in this state, but also as a basis for discipline of those who violate the provisions of this part.

  8. Thomas Thelusma was sentenced and ordered to pay $1,035,000.00 for restitution! That must be some good pussy she has. Did she fuck and suck everyone??

  9. Who hired Dr. Mirabile and the Chief? Who gave them sweetheart contracts? Who extended Dr. Mirabile's contract? Who gave Dr. Mirabile the highest marks possible on his employee evaluation? The answer is the elected officials of this town. Some of whom remain in charge. Take a good hard look at Mayor Stoddard and ask yourself why the man who was once the answer to all his prayers is not the devil incarnate. Place the blame where it belongs.
