CRESPOGRAM REPORT

 LOOK WHOSE GOING TO BE THE NEW RED LIGHT HEARING OFFICER, NONE OTHER THAN FORMER SLUMLORD PLACIDO DIAZ
HERE COME THE JUDGE

Remember back at the beginning of the year when I wrote the stories about Placido Diaz, former cop, and now assistant to Commissioner Willie Gort pulling out a gun at Los Ranchos restaurant at Bayside and supposedly threatening to blow his brains out?


Well, it took a while, but after pretending that he didn’t know about the incident for several days after it happened, Chief Manny Orosa finally ordered Internal Affairs to conduct an investigation, including the behavior of the officer who answered the call for help.


Well, that investigation was completed a couple months ago, but now Chiefy doesn’t want to sign off on the IA Report so that it can become public.


Why, you ask?


It seems that Placido Diaz, aka Pumpkin Head, was touted by his boss, Commissioner Willie ‘I’m Under Criminal Investigation’ Gort, to become the new Hearing Officer for the new Red Light Traffic Court that will be set up at City Hall, and it’s rumored that the IA Report was too embarrassing to be made public.


So, my sources tell me that Chief Manny Orosa, being Orosa, is keeping the report, along with the stuff on Javier Ortiz, and the stuff on a handful of other folks safely tucked away in his desk.


That Manny, he might not be able to run a police department in a way that reduces crime, but he sure knows how to provide protection for those on the Family and Friends Plan that allows for all of these weasel-dicks to cover for each other while they collectively screw the pooch, the city and the taxpayers every which way but loose.


However, putting aside the IA Report about what happened at Los Ranchos, the fact still remains that Placido Diaz was a cop who retired after he came under scrutiny for freelancing as an enforcer in evicting troublesome tenants in the West Grove.   


I wrote about all of that in PART II of my series on Diaz entitled THE SLUMLORD.


The Slumlord title came from the fact that after he left the police force - some folks claim he started before he left - he became a slumlord, with properties in Liberty City that were run so badly that his tenants held protests with signs naming him directly for his bad behavior including an interesting scheme of apartment to condo conversations that he pulled in 2008.


A blog that I discovered when writing those stories described Diaz’s actions during the housing bubble.


        “Unbeknownst to residents of Liberty City Apartments,

        Diaz illegally converted slum apartments into

        condominiums, making millions. According to legal

        and real estate documents Diaz bought Liberty City

        Apartments in 2005 after Hurricane Wilma.  Though

        the building was condemned and not up to code, he

        received a $225,000 mortgage.  Within a year, the

        building was appraised at $900,000 though he only

        invested $5000 in repairs.  


        Diaz illegally converted 27 of the 36 units into condos. 

        The conversion was never registered or approved by

        Florida Condominium and Land Sales.  Tenants never

        received notice or right of first refusal, a violation of

        Florida Law.  The average sale price for each unit

        was $100,000. “


Below is a photo taken at one of those protest rallies that names Placido Diaz as a slumlord.  The arrow points to the sign.

There were always those that questioned why Placido Diaz ended up in Commissioner Willie Gort’s office working for $40,000 a year when he was supposedly a multi-millionaire slumlord.


However he did what he did, and working for Willie Gort for $40,000 a year didn’t turn out to be a decision when it came to time management because instead of spending his time managing his properties and making sure he kept his fortune, last year he was forced to file for bankruptcy under Chapter 7, and managed to walk away from over $3 million in liabilities.

I ‘m not sure appointing a guy who managed to lose so much money so fast to a position where he sits in judgement on other folks is such a good idea, and since Police Chief Orosa doesn’t want to let anyone see the Internal Affairs Report on the gun incident at Los Ranchos, that also should raise some Red Flags about Placido Diaz being a “judge.”


In the meantime, now that Plazido Diaz is going to be assuming a quasi-judicial role as the Red Light Traffic Hearing Officer, it’s only appropriate that his finances, just like the finances of other folks who sit in judgement on their fellow citizens should be made public.


Here’s his bankruptcy filing. The person who passed it on to me says it makes for interesting reading.

It’s Miami, Bitches!
