No surprises there. As we mentioned yesterday, the City of South Miami commission convened a special meeting last night to vote on adopting a resolution to terminate his 5-year employment agreement with the city. There were several impassioned pleas from the chief's supporters including but not limited to threats to the commissioners who voted against the chief, despite the obviously stacked audience in favor of the chief and the tense atmosphere during the meeting as well as the hysterical high faggotry exhibited by some members of the commission, things went off without a hitch. While the outcome of the vote wasn't guaranteed, by meeting's end the commission did vote three to two to adopt the resolution and in essence to void City of South Miami police chief Orlando Martinez de Castro's employment contract.
Anticipating an entertaining commission meeting, I decided to go to trek down to City Hall after work and watch the proceedings first hand. When I got there it was obvious that there were several plain clothes police officers in attendance as well as a few uniformed officers that were all milling around the back of the commission chambers. I decided that I wanted to avoid any potential confrontation, so I went down and sat up front in the third row, third seat from the aisle on the right side where there was no one around me. All well and good till about four minutes into the meeting when some guy comes and sits down right next to me. I could tell by his overall demeanor and the fact that he chose to sit right next to me despite the empty chairs all around us, his intent was to clearly intimidate me or provoke me into some sort of a confrontation. Here's a photo of my new friend...

Whatever the fuck ever. I was rather amused by this interaction and decided that it was my turn to speak at which point I told him "I'm the one who's destroying your family? What about the three innocent girls that your family framed and sent to jail? What about them?" At this point this man who was mere inches from my chest, lunged at me in an effort to attack me at which time he was pulled off me by a plain clothes cop while a uniformed cop simultaneously jumped in between us and pushed him away. Someone behind me then told me that this was one of Chief Orlando Martinez de Castro's sons. While he was being pulled away from me, in front of a crowded commission chamber with ostensibly a member of just about every race and color that populates our region in attendance, Mr. de Castro's son then started hurling racial insults towards me culminating in "you'll see, you're gonna get your's YOU BITCH ASS NIGGER"!
In case you didn't get that, here's a visual aide to help you contemplate what Chief Martinez de Castro's son called me in front of a room full of City employees and constituents...
Honestly, are you fucking serious? In this day and age, how could the chief's son, Christopher Martinez de Castro, hurl this kind of racial slur against me or anyone else for that matter? For fucks sake you asshat, your fucking father is a public servant in a town with a sizable black population, even worse, you decided to call me a "BITCH ASS NIGGER" in front of several black people!
Shame on you, Mr. de Castro, while your intent was to clearly insult and demean me all you managed to accomplish is making yourself look like a lowlife idiot while embarrassing both yourself and your family. Nice work, I couldn't have done a better job myself.
Regardless of Christopher Martinez de Castro's outburst and racial slurs, I was told that shortly after the commission meeting, City Manager Steven Alexander relieved Orlando Martinez de Castro from his duties as police chief and appointed City of South Miami PD Major Rene Landa acting chief. I'll update as soon as I have confirmation.
