So you lied on your job application...


Like the title says, so you lied on your job application.  Under normal circumstances, this may not be that big of a deal.  After all, whats a little white lie on a job application?  Maybe you added a few years of work experience on your resume, made bogus claims about your education or even made up a job to fill in long spells of unemployment.  No biggie, right?  How about lying about past problems with the law?  I can understand why people would be reluctant about disclosing prior arrests and convictions, after all, as an employer, I certainly wouldn't want to hire someone with a questionable past.

So what if you have had past brushes with the law?  I guess if you lie on your employment application, you run the risk of the prospective employer checking your background, maybe you get lucky and they don't and perhaps you get the job?  That may work for some, but what if the job you want is in law enforcement?  Shouldn't you disclose everything about your past, even if it involves an arrest and a conviction?  After all, if you want to be a cop, isn't it a prerequisite for a cop to at the very least be honest, especially on an employment application?

Here's what were getting at, take a look at this screen shot of a particular detective's employment application (click on the image to enlarge)...



Now, clearly where it says "Have you ever been arrested, convicted, or plead no contest to any violations of the law, police regulation, ordinance, traffic violations which resulted in fines or(sic) of more than $100.00?" the applicant checked off "NO".  What we're going to find over the next several days is that indeed the individual who filled out this employment application was indeed arrested, convicted and plead to a violation of the law.  Furthermore, the individual who filled this application out was subsequently hired and made a detective.  

Now, you all tell me, how can any of the cases that this fellow put together during his career or any of the testimony he may have given for those cases be worth a shit when he perjured himself at the very get go when filling out his employment application?  This situation seems like a steaming pile of shit to me.  Even worse, if I were a defendant in a case put together by this fellow, I'd want my attorney to know about this situation with his employment application as it shows that from the very beginning of his career, the subject cop was dishonest.

  1. Doesn't the city do background checks like run applicants through the various justice data bases. Every background investigator knows that an applicant may lie.

    1. No, even if they did, it still would not matter, background check how many "cocaine cowboys" are employed by the city of south miami.....

    2. This is correct, way to many are employeed and this plays a big part in how the corruption in this county started years ago. From one form of corruption to another.

  2. Of course South Miami does background checks. And for police they also contract for outside polygraph testing and psychological evaluation. The police brass had to have known everything and known the applicant was being dishonest, which leads to the obvious question: StrawBuyer, who was the chief of police when this job application was filed? Wait, could it be...

  4. And how did the strawbuyer get this private information, was it by Mayor Stoddard who feeds the strawbuyer. You want to address honest? Please, hypocrite. What does it matter. There was a drug bust a year or so ago in the city and the bust was at the home of a south Miami resident who is also an employee of the city at the community center. From what has been told in the paper they found marijuana and growing marijuana. Was the employee whose house the city raided fired, the answer is no, and he/she should have been in the spot. The reason they weren't fired is because Comm. Harris used his powers not to have he/her drug tested or fired, so Strawbuyer, want to blast a blog about lying about an application, I think what Harris did was much worse. The person is still working at the community center. Perhaps Mr. Strawbuyer you credibility is now at stake and you better check your stories out before more and more people stop reading your blog.

    1. Dumb ass, get your facts straight. The issue with marijuana was the son's problem, not the person that works in the Community Center. This son is 30 plus years old, he is not his parents responsibility, get it. Is YOUR mama still responsible for YOU? poor mama.

    2. Anonymous your 100% correct it was not the person who works at the Community Center, but a relative, and not the son of the Community Center employee.

      In addition there was no pot growing on the property or found on the property. The relative had a small piece of marijuana on his person.

      As the police why they did not arrest the home owners? Dumb fucks spent in excess of $100,000.00 of resources for a fucken $5.00 roach of marijuana arrest. WTF

      They need to arrest Lopez, Or firing his ass will do.

  6. Mayor Stoddard or should I say anonymous. You have the facts incorrect. Are you covering for your flunky Comm Harris once again? The pot was found in the home of an employee at the community center, end of story. That alone is grounds for dismissal If the police didn't arrest the homeowner, who is responsible by law, guess you don't know everything Mayor, than you Mayor Stoddard, probably got involved when you shouldn't in order to secure the black vote in the upcoming election at the time, Doesn't matter, many people thing three members of the commission smoke marijuana, their supporters do, so their mentors are a given!

    1. And how do you know the "true" facts, dumb ass? Another dumb ass told you so? Two dumb asses do not constitute one smart brain. You lost and that is what it is about. Sour grapes.

    2. So you're blasting Harris for advocating medical pot? Don't both Newman and Liebman's dads have cancer? Would canabidinol give them an appetite? let's see how precincts 606 and 621 vote on this in Nov.!

  7. Legalize it, decriminalize it, it's an herb!!!!

    But I didn't shoot no deputy, oh no! Oh!......"

  8. For the secret poster, Comm. Newman's father does not have cancer, get your facts straight, and Comm Liebman's father has esophageal cancer., If you had any brains and attended any high school classes, you would realize that smoking legal marijuana when you have esophageal cancer, where one had radiation therapy, would irate the lining and surround tissue around the esophagus, or did Phillip Stoddard tell you differently.

    The only reason Comm Harris wants it legalized, is so that he can get his pot more readily, someone please tell him he doesn't have cancer, so his crusade is waste. What he does have is marijuana brain, dementia, possible alzheimers, and hearing loss, none of those would allow the man to purchase medical marijuana unless he lies to everyone and says he does have cancer, and than it would be a coverup by the South Miami Police Dept.

    1. Hey, dumb ass - you are dumber than the description of "dumb" in the Oxford dictionary. When one takes medical marijuana, he/she does not smoke it, but takes it like a medicine, in drops or tablets or capsules. And it would especially help a patient with esophageal cancer since it would help with nausea. In addition, it helps with pain caused by many illnesses, including little children. So try to think with the upper part of your body, rather than the lower. And most importantly, educate yourself. It might help, although i can not promise, you might be a lost case...o, well.

    2. But how is this marijuana issue related to a dishonest, disgusting "sample" of a human species, named dishonest police detective? This is just a smoke screen for somebody who lost in this election. Nothing will help you with that.
