Dear Mr. Hatami:
Thank you again for the information you provided to us. At this time, no public records exist concerning this matter and I can not confirm the status of any of your inquires.
Sincerely, Michael Murawski
Oh, Ok! Mr Murawski's response is a bit underwhelming, but while the investigation into Chief Martinez's alleged unethical activities are ongoing, all the records pertaining to the investigation are not "public record". That's all well and good but what bothers me is how long this investigation has taken, I understand that the allegations are a bit more serious than the allegations that the ethics commission had against commissioner Bob Welsh a few months back, but really, how much time do they need to wrap this up? Our sources from within the South Miami Police Department tell us that investigators from the Ethics Commission have interviewed several police officers who have all said that the Chief did indeed steer city business to his wife's business, so if indeed that is the case, what's taking so long?
