CRESPOGRAM REPORT

THE SLUMLORD RETURNS
 PLACIDO “PUMPKIN HEAD” DIAZ SET TO RETURN TO POLICE DEPARTMENT.  PLUS MAJOR HERBELLO’S KIDS GET JOBS TOO

Word has it that Placido Diaz, the middle-aged, former cop who left the police department under a cloud, is now being processed to return to the department, supposedly so that he can become a new Sgt-At-Arms, assigned to Commissioner Willie Gort. An alternative theroy is that Diaz, who plotted and schemed - and was the one who gave me the original IA file on Mayor Al Alvarez that was missing critical pages - wants to become the head of IA so that he can turn the Police Department back to the days when IA was used to develop private files on political opponents.


Diaz got a taste for this kind of activity working as theLegislative Assistant to Commissioner Willie Gort since 2010, and was one of the principals behind the scenes in the campaigns to oust both City Manager Tony Crapp Jr. and Police Chief Miguel Exposito.


Diaz was also the principal subject of my 3 Part Series, THE SLUMLORD, where I detailed some of the actions that led to his leaving the force under a cloud.


Why would a millionaire real estate investor with a house on Venitian Cuaseway and a yacht tied up at the backdoor - which is what Diaz became during his first go around as a cop - want to return to the force, even as a Sgt-At-Arms, or a Police Major?


For the cushy salary, and even cushier retirement package that he would qualify for after just one year on the job.


With a $40 million deficit, a 10.7% increase in crime, and a police force that currently needs over 100 able-bodied officers to help turn that problem around, the idea of bringing back a middle-aged, former cop who left under a cloud, so he can cash in like a pig at the trough, only underscores just how sleazy and scummy Willie Gort has become over the years he’s been in office, because make no mistake about it, this isn’t occurring without the direct involvement and support of Willie Gort.


Way to go Willie, maybe you can plaster Placido Diaz’s photo on telephone poles in your District. That should scare the criminals away.


MAJOR HERBELLO KIDS ALSO GET ON THE FORCE


Major Raul Herbello is best known to CrespoGram readers as the cop standing at attention waiting for Armando “The Whopper” Gutierrez to get out of the Mayor’s SUV at the Women In White protest in March of 2010.

It turns out that Herbello’s 2 sons also lucked up and got jobs on the police force thanks to the Regalado Family and Friends Plan, and supposedly, one of the boys might have needed all the help he could get. 


But then, that’s what the Plan is there for, and I’m sure that Herbello figures that he’s entitled to some sort of consideration for the embarrassment that my posting of this photo generates for him within the department every time I stick it in a story.


It’s Miami, Bitches!
