You'll never believe where shitty cops from Sweetwater end up...
We left off last time discussing a video showing a Sweetwater cop beating the shit out of a man with his hands cuffed behind his back who was being beaten because he wouldn't put his hands on the counter in front of him. While this incident occurred back in 2010, it's not the first case of a horrendous beating at the hands of the Sweetwater PD. Take a look at this story from back in 2003, here are some of the salient points from the article...
A 19- year-old man has accused three police officers of severely beating him, and says the mayor later saw them punch him in the head before driving them all to the station.
I guess the beating had the mayoral seal of approval!
Four Sweetwater police officers have been suspended with pay while the Miami-Dade County state attorney's office and the police department investigate what happened to Peter Daniel on June 18.
Suspended with pay? What kind of punishment is that? Someone please suspend me with pay!
Sweetwater Mayor Manuel Marono said that his city- owned Ford Excursion was used to take Daniel to the station, but he refused further comment.
Sweet! I suppose ex Mayor Morono was a hands on kind of guy!
A police report filed by another of the suspended officers, Allen St. Germain, said Daniel threw himself several times against the floor of the police station and the wall of his holding cell.
Of course he did!
Boros said that at the police station, police kicked and beat Daniel. At one point an officer lifted Daniel off the floor as another officer punched him in the stomach, he said.
Daniel said at one point, Boros said, the mayor sat next to him and saw one of the officers punch him in the head.
Is this how mayoral meetings go over at the City of Sweetwater?
Then, Boros said, the mayor returned to the driver's seat and drove Daniel and his friend, Danny Izquierdo, back to the station, where Izquierdo was questioned for a while, then released.
Like I said, former mayor Morono was a hands on kind of guy! Here's the best part though...
The other officers suspended were Jose F. Lopez and Sgt. George I. Alvarez.
SWEET! So he's involved in beating the shit out of this poor guy, get's a complaint filed against him, miraculously the Sweetwater PD find no cause and don't discipline him yet quits while under investigation and ends up becoming a detective over at the South Miami PD under former police chief Orlando Martinez de Castro!
I know very little about this Lopez character, perhaps our readers can fill us in?
I read a story in the Miami Herald on October 7, 2008 regarding a mortgage fraud case that didn't make any sense to me, I did a little digging and what I found left me stunned. A tale of a task force head whose political ambitions have run amuck, a detective without a modicum of common sense, a reporter that prints anything that's put in front of him, the railroading of an attorney by this machine to further the ambitions of its head and the lengths that those involved will go to in order to salvage a case that should have never been. Please take the time to start from the oldest post first and enjoy...
