It ain't easy writing this blog...
Throughout the last several years, we've often struggled with the subject matter of this blog. Whether the story was about a crooked politician, dirty cop or other fraudsters that haven't been found out yet, it's tough writing about these people. Each and everyone one of them has a family that for the most part may have nothing to do or even know about the nefarious schemes our subjects have been involved in yet by outing these folks we invariably do great harm to the people around them not to mention outing whatever crooked business they're engaging in. So it's tough to write about some of our subjects over the years knowing the kind of collateral damage that will occur as a result of our work, nothing drove this point home more than watching the friends and family of then City of Miami assistant fire chief Veldora Arthur during her federal mortgage fraud trial. It tore me up to watch them have to sit through the trial and ultimately watch her get convicted and sent off to jail, regardless, in my opinion, considering her position and how she abused her position, it was a story that needed to be told. Perhaps she should have thought about her children before she engaged in a ten million dollar plus fraud?
Regardless, we're now working on a story involving a dirty cop who thinks nothing of manufacturing false police reports, fabricating evidence, etc. When our story comes out, this cop is sure to loose his job and more than likely his law enforcement certification. I've held off on putting this story together considering the impact it will have on his family, who more than likely have nothing to do with this guy being a piece of shit. When considering the consequences of outing this guy, you have to take into account that this guy thinks nothing of writing bogus police reports and fucking with people simply because he can. A dirty cop? I think so. Does he deserve to be outed? What do you guys think?
