We Filed a Lawsuit Today Over My Metrorail Assault Incident 1

By Carlos Miller

Eight months after I was battered and assaulted by a security guard on the Miami-Dade Metrorail for videotaping inside a train station, I filed a lawsuit seeking damages.

The suit was filed today at the Miami-Dade Courthouse by my attorney Michael Pancier, who also happens to be a talented nature photographer.

He advised me not to comment on the suit because it is pretty much self-explanatory.

Besides, not only was the incident captured by HD Net on video, I’ve said all I’ve had to say on the matter in previous articles.

We are also seeking other photographers who have been harassed by 50 State security on the Metrorail because it’s an ongoing issue that has yet to be resolved.

If you have been harassed, threatened or intimidated by 50 State for taking photos or video on or near the Metrorail, send me an email to carlosmiller at magiccitymedia dot com (written that way to prevent the spambots from spamming me).

    Question: have you considered including requiring termination of employees or revocation of law enforcement officers police certifications as part of any suit settlement? My thought is that if awarded monetary settlement, that is taken from taxpayer revenues, so the officers essentially suffer no consequences from their actions. But if thes individuals paid with losing their job, the word would get around quickly and this abuse of power would decline rapidly.
