Just like that at Tuesdays city commission meeting, the commission voted, 3/2, that they do not have confidence in the city's embattled police chief, Orlando Martinez de Castro. In my opinion that moves the chief one step closer to the door. I guess you guys know how we feel about the subject...
After the "no confidence" vote, the commission went on to discuss taking away the control of the parking department from the chief. What leaves me baffled is the assertions from Commissioner Newman and some of her cohorts that somehow the chief was responsible for boosting parking revenues and that the chief is on call 24/7 in case there's anything awry with the parking in the City of South Miami. WTF? Honestly, it's one thing to have us believe that the chief single handedly stopped all the crime in the city, but how the hell do you expect us to believe that parking revenues are up because of the chief's running of the parking department? And once again, just like that, poof! The commission went on to take away control of the parking department from the chief!
So what do you think chief? Did you ever think a little over a year ago when we started writing about your wife's tag agency and the railroading of the poor tellers that you blamed for stealing tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars from her rinky dink three window tag agency that we'd end up here?
Karma's a bitch, isn't it Chief?
