TROUBLE IN REGALADOLAND

Manny Orosa was never seen as much more than a puppet for His Ignorance, the Mayor, but it was hoped that he’d at least try to handle some of the problems that built up in the Police Department  over the last year of Exposito’s tenure as Chief.

It hasn’t happened. Morale in the department appears to be cratering, and a large portion of the rank and file have supposedly submitted Blue Cards requesting the National Labor Relation’s Board to hold an election so that they can vote out the FOP as their contract bargaining unit and replace them with the PBA.

The worst calamity has been the revelation that crime in Miami has increased by 10.7%, and the department’s continuing failure to tackle the problem of hiring new officers to fill the growing loss as some officers retire, and others go looking for jobs in other police departments.

In an obvious Fruedian slip, Orosa was quoted in the Miami Herald as saying, “If we were a public company, we would be fired...”We would be deemed incompetent for not having hired new employees.”

On the personnel front, the day after Orosa was appointed interim Chief, Luis Cabrera demanded that his photo be returned to the the Department’s  Wall featuring the leadership of the department, where it now proclaims that he is once again the Deputy Chief of Police, even though he’s supposedly an Acting Assistant City Manager.

It’s all just another flagrant example of the kind of Banana Republic behavior that underscores just how little respect Regalado and Cabrera have for the law, the City Charter, or any other trappings of honesty and competence that reasonable folks normally expect of their city government.

To cap it off, Cabrera and the Chief’s secretary are spending 3 weeks in Boston taking some sort of Police Executive Training, allegedly at a cost of $9000 each, although that seems far too expensive.

Regardless of the cost, a question that merits an answer is why, with all the pressing equipment needs of the police department,  would Orosa approve spending money for these two to go traipsing of to Boston when he’s not officially the Deputy Chief, and she’s a secretary? Aren’t there enough real command officers in the department that could benefit from more training before these two?

All of this and more continues to draw scathing complaints and criticism from officers at every level of the police department who see Orosa’s actions as little more than screwing over the department’s rank and file to do the Mayor’s bidding.

Perhaps the most scathing criticism of Orosa in recent weeks came on Wednesday when on officer posted the following on  the LEO Affair bulletin board:

Dear Manuel Orosa,


I would like to know how it feels to be the most hated person in the department? What does it feel like to be walking the halls of Mpd knowing everyone is hooting as you walk by? What is it like to be the most powerful employee on the department yet you have now power at all. How can a cop go from a front line worker to a political do boy kiss ass? Sure you make a lot more money. Sure you get to drive a luxury SUV. Sure you get fringe benefits but after all is said and done, your alone in a corner hooting to yourself while everyone is looking at you laughing at the coward who sold himself to a communist asshole. I bet when you started you thought you would rid the city of crime. Now you contribute to it by enabling drug dealers, murderers and political corruption.


You have done nothing to help any officer on this department. You have done nothing to help the citizens of miami. You have done nothing to make yourself an honorable police officer. You smear the reputations of hard working cops, military men and citizens who stand up for those who can't defend themselves.


With great power comes great responsibility


With you, it's "With great power comes greed"


I come to work everyday ashamed that I work for you and the mayor. I can't wait for the day the mayor is arrested and you are removed. You sir are incompetent and a coward. I mean really, who sends a drove of officers to patrol without speaking to them face to face. Who doesn't back their officers up to the media? Who doesn’t stand up to crooked politicians? What kind of leader enjoys the riches while his officers can barely make ends meet? Who tells criminals it's open season to commit crime?


YOU SIR ARE A COWARD AND NOT WORTHY OF A BADGE. I WORK FOR THE CITIZENS OF MIAMI CAUSE I DAMN SURE DON'T WORK FOR YOU!


Orosa was never expected to last long as Chief, but with his obvious inability to be anything but Regalado increasingly unpopular butt-boy, there is growing a belief and concern that he will not be long for the job, and that Regalado will in fact attempt to appoint Luis Cabrera as the next Chief of the Miami Police Department.


The 5 Dwarfs on the City Commission do not have the courage to oppose this move, so the only thing that stands between the citizens and a police department run by Luis Cabrera is the arrest and indictment of Regalado.


It’s Miami, Bitches!

REGALADO’S HAND PICKED CHIEF OF POLICE GETS NO LOVE FROM THE RANK AND FILE
