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?

Fire the Chief

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

Let me see....Who was in charge of Vehicles the last few years? Hmmm, I know, Let's blame it on Salerno. He's Retired, He's Old. He wont fight back... Lt. Dan, say hello to Mr. Sword...LOL

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?
