PROBABLE CAUSE

Yesterday the Miami-Dade Ethics Commission found probable cause in the complaint that I filed against him for calling the Chief of Police manny Orosa, after he had been stopped for a traffic violation in Coconut Grove.


Here is what the Ethic’s Commission press release described happened at the meeting.

I just loved the defense that Carollo’s lawyer offered about the Commissioner’s phone call being intended to determine why several police vehicles and a city recycling truck were blocking the road.


The reason was that the City was distributing the new garbage bins - something that you would expect a City Commissioner to know something about.


It’s all bullshit. How many people - other than these corrupt politicians in City Hall have the Chief of Police’s phone number, or think that it’s perfectly okay to call the Chief up anytime you have a question about city vehicles engaging in what was clearly city business?  Why didn’t he call the Director of Solid Waste?  It was one of their trucks?


And of course it’s a joke when he claims that he did not ask for special treatment, because the phone call and his identifying himself as Commissioner Carollo, automatically implies special treatment.


If Carollo had really been interested in what was going on, he could have pulled his car over, gotten out, and walked up to one of the cop cars and asked what was going on.


He didn’t.  What he did do was pull out into oncoming traffic to get around the conjestion, and that’s why he got stopped, and that’s why he called the Chief as soon as he could dial the number.


This is a serious charge and needs to be treated seriously.  Carollo could be removed from office for this stunt, although I don’t think that the Ethics Commission has the backbone to go that far.
