THE SNITCH IN CHIEF
POLICE CHIEF MANNY OROSA CALLED HIS OFFICERS “SNITCHES” FOR TIPPING ME OFF ABOUT COMMISSIONER FRANK CAROLLO’S  CALLING HIM AFTER HE GOT PULLED OVER FOR A TRAFFIC STOP

On February 27, 2013, Miami Police Chief Manuel Orosa was deposed by Michael Murawski of the Miami-Dade Ethics Commission in the case of Miami City Commissioner Frank Carollo’s alleged abuse of power case.


When it came time for Carollo’s attorney, Ben Kuehne to cross examine Orosa, Kuehne wanted to know how I could have gotten the information that revealed that Carollo had called the Chief.


Here is the page from the transcript of that portion of the deposition.

Imagine that, the Chief of Police of a major American city calling his own police officers “snitches” for passing on information about possible wrong doing within his department.


There isn’t a law enforcement agency or a news organization that would survive and serve the public good without folks coming forward with information that people doing wrong would like to keep secret.


How do you think it plays in areas of the city like Overtown and Liberty City where people are terrorized into not coming forth to provide information on the killers of little kids, old people and on occasion the neighborhood dog when the Chief of Police disparages his his own officers by calling them “snitches?”


In some American cities this revelation would warrant outrage and perhaps a vote of No Confidence by those same officers who the chief disparaged.


But not in Miami. In Miami, the Chief smirks, his cronies in the police department chortle, and at the end of the day police officers in Miami are still willing to confide in me because comments like this only serve to confirm their belief that the Chief of Police is not to be trusted, and will not do the right thing by them or the city.


WHEN THE CHIEF WAS A “SNITCH”


There is no small irony that Chief Manny Orosa would call any of his officers a “snitch,” when his behavior in the killing of Leonardo Mercardo should have resulted in his going to prison.


It was members of Orosa’s squad that were convicted in the Mercardo case for stomping his face and body with such severity that the imprints of their shoes were imbed in the skin of his face and body.


At the beginning, Orosa under the advice of counsel, refused to talk to investigators.  That changed several sources familiar with the case told me, after the feds informed him that they were going to charge and try him along with his squad for Mercardo’s murder. Those same sources told me that on hearing this news, Orosa fainted and fell off his chair.


When he recovered, Orosa, being the stand up guy that he is, decided to become a government witness against his squad members.


Here is a copy of the letter written to then Miami Police Chief Perry Anderson after Orosa testified. 

As the ultimate “snitch,” Orosa got to stay in the police department while his squad members went to prison as a result of his testimony.


Today, as the Chief of Police in the Banana Republic of Miami he has the gall to call his officers “snitches/”


It’s Miami, Bitches!
