Crime in the City of Miami up by 10.7%!




Amazing isn't it?  The Miami Herald reports that "Crime rate drops slightly statewide and in Miami Dade, rises in Broward" yet the completely ignore the fact that the crime rate in the very city their headquarters are located in has jumped by 10.7%!  Take a look at the statistics from the Herald's own story...


You can find the FDLE report that the story is based on here.  No matter how you cut it, crime in the City of Miami has gone through the roof under Chief Manuel Orosa, blame it on whatever you want, whether it's pay cuts, drastic reductions in the tactical robbery units, etc, Chief Orosa owns this embarrassing statistic.

What I find even more alarming is the refusal of the Herald to report on this black eye for the Regalado/Orosa administration while taking the time to slam Broward county whose crime rate only went up 3.5%!  WTF guys?

  1. THATS NOT JUST CORRUPTION ITS AN ORGNIZED EFFORT BY A GROUP OF PEOPLE TO WITHHOLD INFORMATION FROM CITIZENS FOR THE SAKE OF PROFIT AND POLITICAL GAIN.

  2. Well, what do you expect. Orosa becomes the chief and all tactical units are stripped to the bone or outright disbanded. Couples with massive salary and benefit cuts, officers are only answering calls and proactive policing has gone by the wayside.Political patronage has returned to la cuidad.

  3. Exposito had the right idea. Sure some criminals were shot BIG DEAL! If your going to back down to a few protests from ignorant people, you might as well tell the cops to sit at the station while the citizens who pay taxes AND ACTUALLY VOTE get raped by the thugs of miami. This city has become a tropical Detroit and it's only going to get worse unless Exposito is brought back.

    It is all about the money. The very reason why the Herald refuses to report anything negative about the City of Miami and Miami-Dade County is because of political patronage. The selling of the Herald Building to the Genting Group is the 2011-2012 version of the Florida Marlins political dealings to build a stadium back in 2008-2009. The backroom deals are prevelant along with the current and future exchange of monies with politicians and lobbyists.

    Where is Katherine Fernandez-Rundle? Check their pockets. For her is all about being re-elected. She has compromised and sold her soul,body, and mind to preserve her territory as Miami-Dade County State Attorney. Trust me when I tell you, if you vote "NO" to re-elect her and vote "YES" for anyone, but her, then is fair game for those have done wrong, to pay for their wrongdoings.

    It is time! StrawBuyer, what do you think?

  7. Forget who's fault it is, why isn't the Herald reporting the stats correctly?

    Machine nonsense again? Yep. I got more coming.

  8. Straw im an avid reader and i appriciate what you, crespo and others do. I have been a cop for 30 years so i know a little bit about internal and external politics when it comes to police work and crime stats. Dont take my statement as fact, check your sources. The machines were a diversionary tactic to advance a policital agenda, not an operational crime reducing strategy. If you were not placing blame then I am the one that misinterpreted your headline. I do not miss Exposito, he brought unnecessary scrutiny from the media, DOJ, and the community to the police department. He did all that to keep his job, not to fight for us or for the people he was supposed to be serving. Keep up the good work, but cross-check your sources.
