Miami Cop Fearing Termination after Altercation with Internal Affairs Lieutenant he Pulled Over (Updated)



A Miami police officer pulled a car over for speeding last month, which turned out to be a plainclothes internal affairs lieutenant who shoved the door open on the officer after refusing to provide his drivers license, leading to a struggle on the side of the road that was caught on camera.

As the two were on the ground wresting, another three Miami cops who just happened to be in the area pulled up and piled on the screaming driver– only to pull off when they realized the man at the bottom was an internal affairs lieutenant from their own department.

That was when the officer Marcel Jackson, the cop who initiated the stop, was sent to his patrol car and internal affairs Lieutenant David Ramras assumed control of the situation.

Realizing the outranking officer with more than two decades of seniority over him was going to turn him into the aggressor, Jackson pulled out his cell phone and began taking photos of the officers that began arriving.

But then a cop ordered him to stop. And another cop later ordered him to delete the photos.

However, unknowing to the other officers at the time, Jackson had video recorded the entire incident with his GoPro camera, which he had attached to his dash, but shoved in between seat after realizing they were turning against him, keeping it recording to capture the ensuing conversations. The department does not use dash or body cams, so it’s not something they would expect.

Adding to the usual irony of cops investigating cops, the department’s internal affairs department is now investigating the incident involving their own lieutenant, who has since been transferred to the special investigations section, a top-secret unit that works in partnership with state and federal agencies, considered a promotion by officers in the department, even though it is technically a lateral transfer.

The video was leaked to the Crespogram Report, a Miami blog operated by Al Crespo that regularly breaks insider stories that otherwise would not see the light of day, many which are followed by the local media.

Crespo, who is profiled in my book on citizen journalism, has spoken to sources from the department and explains the issue began when Ramras condescendingly asked Jackson a question about his physical appearance:

My sources tell me that Ramras conceded that he had indeed asked Jackson, “what’s that on your face.” Many African-American men have a problem shaving because of “skin bumps” caused by ingrown facial hair, and it’s a recognized medical problem that allows police officers not to shave with a letter from a doctor.

Crespo also explains that he has not spoken to Jackson nor did Jackson leak him the video. Rather, it was leaked by sources wanting to protect Jackson from getting wrongly terminated.

To try and protect himself even more, I have been told that Jackson put a call in to the State Attorney’s Office, seeking guidance and approval for an arrest, and in the course of the conversation revealed to them that he had recorded the entire incident on a dash cam.

Jackson was then ordered to go to IA and give a statement. During the course of that interview, which some believe was the prelude to relieving Jackson from duty, the folks in IA discovered the existence of the dash cam and the video tape.

Jackson was asked to voluntarily turn over the tape, refused, and was eventually ordered to do so under the claim that it was evidence in a criminal investigation.

My sources tell me that as a result of the way in which this investigation has been handled so far there was never a Use Of Force Report, a traffic citation against Ramras for speeding, or an Arrest Report written, and that no Warrant issued.

Ramras has supposedly been transferred laterally from IA to SIS, which some people actually consider a promotion of sorts, and he was provided an attorney by the FOP.

Jackson so far remains on patrol, and went out and got his own lawyer, because even though the video tape clearly shows that Ramras was the aggressor in his efforts to get out of his car, Jackson as the low man on the totem pole is believed to be the one who stands the best chance of actually being punished over this incident.

It’s just another example of how the Family & Friends Plan works in the Banana Republic of Miami.

In the video, which is posted below, Jackson sits in his car after the incident and can be heard calling a guy named “Rick,” who apparently is another officer, perhaps a supervisor, telling him the story of how the driver flashed a badge, asked what was on his face, then pushed the door open on him.

He’s running around trying to pull muscle and rank, but I’m telling him, sir, you can’t do that.
He’s telling me, get the fuck in your car.

I was like, what, who are you talking to?

I said, sir, license, registration and insurance. Just like any 19 I’ve ever done in my life, dude.
And this guy just jumps down my throat. And I’m like, Ok, He didn’t give me a chance to say what I pulled him over for.


I thought I was going to shoot this man … cause I didn’t know if he was armed, whether he is a police or not, I didn’t know if he was going to pull out a weapon.

Jackson tells Rick that another internal affairs officer has shown up to the scene, one who has written him up before. In fact, Jackson was suspended without pay for 80 hours back in 2008 when he failed to report a use of force incident, which is a whopping amount of time considering cops routinely get nothing more than paid administrative leave.

The complainant, James Farley stated that he was at 3110 Elizabeth Street, Miami, FL 33127 on December 8th, 2007, when Officer Marcel Jackson arrested him without cause. It was further alleged by Mr. Farley that Officer Jackson handcuffed him and threw him to the ground. Mr. Farley fell face forward and his chest landed on some rocks. Officer Jackson used expletives during the arrest and instructed Mr. Farley to “shut up”. Mr. Farley indicated that several times he complained of the handcuffs being to tight, which resulted in bruising to his wrist however, Officer Jackson failed to adjust the handcuffs. Sergeant Rolando E. Davis and Sergeant Nelson Cruz of Internal Affairs conducted an investigation and rendered a finding of Inconclusive regarding the allegations of Abusive Treatment and Discourtesy. However, during the course of the Internal Affairs investigation the allegation of Misconduct was added to the complaint in light of Officer Jackson failing to report his Use of Force during Mr. Farley’s arrest. The allegation of Misconduct against Officer Jackson was Substantiated by Internal Affairs and an 80- hour suspension without pay was imposed.

Crespo posted three videos; one of the altercation, the other of the conversation and the other of the entire incident. All three are posted below. The extended video also captures the conversation between Jackson and Javier Ortiz, president of the Fraternal Order of Police, the police union, which also represents Ramras.

In the extended video, Ramras speeds past Jackson at 8:11 and is pulled over about a minute later with the altercation just before 10:00 into the video.

“Get the fuck off me,” Ramras screams from beneath the pile, which is ironic considering how many cops he must have exonerated for doing the same to other citizens.

“Do you know who the fuck I am?” Ramras screams at Jackson after he stands up.

“No, I don’t,” Jackson responds.

“I showed you ID,” Ramras yells.

But Jackson told Rick that Ramras did nothing more than flash a badge while he was insisting for license, registration and proof of insurance.

You would think an internal affairs lieutenant would appreciate a cop doing things by the book.

But this is a lieutenant who sped right past the cop’s patrol car and continued speeding for a minute even as the patrol car began following him, evidently expecting his badge to get him out of a ticket.

So it’s understandable why at 21:30 in the video, Jackson places the camera between the seats where it goes dark even though it continues recording audio. And the conversation with Rick begins at 23:43 and lasts until 29:10 when he tells Rick he is going to step out to take photos.

Within a minute, he is being ordered to stop taking photos because he is “making things worse.”

“I’m not making anything worse,” he says. “I can take pictures.”

The cop tells him he cant because there is an undercover cop car involved as if that’s supposed to make a difference.

“It’s on public display. I can take pictures of whatever is in public,” Jackson says.

“We’re not going to allow that shit to happen here,” the unseen cop tells him. “Put your phone away and relax. Go sit in your car now.”

Later, a cop walks up to his car and demands an explanation.

“All I’m doing is taking pictures.”

“Yeah, and you’re testing.”

“I’m not testing. I’m documenting. All those people are in cahoots. That’s why I’m taking pictures.”

Minutes later, union president Ortiz walks up:

“I don’t know what the fuck is going on. I understand what he did did, but right now as you can see, it’s you against the fucking world because of who it is, so we’re going to get the attorney here and we’re going to figure out how we’re going to handle this. I don’t think we’re just going to let this go or anything, you know.

“I’m not going to let it go. I was insulted,” Jackson says.

“You were insulted. You were battered,” Ortiz says.

“That too.”

At 41:50, Ortiz walks back to Jackson’s car and tells him to delete the photo, but Jackson is reluctant to do so.

“I’m just telling you. Just say yes, I don’t care,” Ortiz tells him, letting him know that he won’t push the matter if he just verbally agrees to do so.

“I will,” Jackson says.

“Thank you very much,” Ortiz says.

Ortiz then comes back and tells Jackson that he got into some type of dispute with Ramras a week earlier, so these are clearly dysfunctional people in a dysfunctional department, but that’s the way it’s always been.

Crespo also reports that just last week, Chief Manual Orosa sent out a memo to officers advising about the benefits of body-mounted cameras, so perhaps the department will start issuing them to officers some day.

But if you look at the department’s history of corruption, abuse and ineptness, you can understand why they have never seriously considered issuing cameras to officers. This is the department, after all, that led to the creation of this blog after they arrested me for taking photos in 2007; those camera shy officers permanently honored in the PINAC header photo.

Last month’s incident is being discussed by Miami police officers on LEO Affairs.

Jackson is as militant as they come. And Ramres is an arrogant asshole. That’s a bad mix. Jackson definitely knew who he was. He just picked the wrong battle. He’s gonna lose in the long run. This administration is good at covering shit up.

But they’re not going to cover this one up, no matter what they end up doing to Jackson.

UPDATE: So apparently they relieved Jackson of duty on Friday, according to officers on LEO Affairs. Today, the local stations will no doubt be on the story (you would hope anyway) and maybe get a statement from the Miami Police Department.

They will probably claim he has been the subject of too many internal affairs investigations, and maybe that was the case, but now everybody will see that internal affairs has no credibility.

    This is pure office politics at its worst. Regardless of the outcome – even if the captain is charged, tired, convicted and goes to jail, loosing his job – his IA department will be gunning (literately) for the officer. Best thing he can do is to move out of Maimi, take another job waaaay out of town (upstate or better yet out of state) – before the SWAT team makes a mistake on the address of their next raid.

    Sorry to distract from the story, I let a visceral reaction to one person’s tangential involvement get the better of me.

    • al crespo

      Dear Seth Levy,

      Are you a complete moron, or just an asshole trying to be a moron?

      I don’t know Senator Graham – that is if you are claiming that former US Senator Bob Graham is the person who supposedly gave me money. More importantly, why would he have given me money, and what smear campaign.

      I don’t take money from anyone for anything. I self-finance my blog, and if that were not the case some of the real people who I’ve made enemies of would have long ago dug something up and published it.

      I have checked my blog and did not find any mention of you anywhere in my archives. I do recall that you were involved – I guess you’re the same Seth Levy – with Commissioner Marc Sarnoff in some sort of deal having to do with a skateboard park in Coconut Grove, but I never wrote about that, so I am at a loss as to your rant.

      However, I’m always happy to take credit whenever a moron claims that something I did chased them out of town. Miami’s gain is some other community’s loss.

      So the best I can tell you is go fuck yourself, and if you keep making these stupid claims that I took money or was bribed to write a story I’ll sue your dumb ass.

    Touch a cop, you go to jail for felony assault.

    No question but if had been Joe Public in the car he would have been arrested for assault, the police dog would have been turned loose on him and you would have heard repeated cries of Stop Resisting

    It’s a crooked system.

    With that said, my viewing of the video doesn’t show from the guy in the car, the door was not violently thrown open nor did it strike the cop, he started to open the door, the cop grabbed the door and opened it the rest of the way, probably told the other cop to stay in the car and when he didn’t he violently shoved him back and a melee ensued.

    Seems like we have two cops who both like to push people around, unfortunately for the uniformed cop the IA cop likes to push both citizens and other cops around and can get away with it.

    F ’em both.

    • Difdi

      Battery, not assault. In some states they’re the same thing, but not in Florida.

  • Film The Police Always

    I’m shocked that this cop was suspended Friday. If anyone should be suspended, it should be that Lt. Like I have said over & over & over, Cop’s hate Black people, the SYSTEM hates black people, and white cops HATE BLACK COPS! They might act like they are boyz on the street when beating citizens up, but they truly hate blacks in general. I guarantee you that that Lt. has used the N word 1000’s of times.

    Because the system HATES blacks so much, this black cop is screwed as they are going to make up any story they can to protect the corrupt Lt. that he pulled over. Hopefully this incident will wake up a group of black cops that will literally bring down the Miami Police with a huge scandal. Maybe new Chris Dorners will be born.

      One cop, speeding, expected to be let go because he had a badge.
      Another cop didn’t want to let it go without more than a flash of a badge.
      Kinda like George Zimmerman, in as much as two people making bad decisions causing a problem/
      Had the Speeding cop explained before basically belly bumping the other, this could have been another non-event.

      Cops have a brotherhood. They will not often give another a ticket for speeding…. Jackson evoked a response by not playing by the brotherly rules…

    I hope this video serves as evidence as to why all of these degenerates need to be under constant supervision.

    Imagine if this cop didn’t record any of what happened. He would have been fired already. ALWAYS FILM THE POLICE. ALWAYS! Even if it’s not you being stopped. You could be saving someone from false charges. Record them and and if something happens, lay low and say nothing for a few weeks. Let these corrupt pigs write their reports and then through the open records act find the person who you recorded and get the video to them AND the news!

      Really, because all we see in the video is a black cop attacking a person for the mere act of opening their door. And the video is clear, the cop was not touched by the door.

    Is is normal cop crap. I know someone a couple of years back that discovered at his job evidence of police officers engaged in filming themselves committing acts of child molestation. When this evidence was brought in police higher ups confiscated this evidence and threatened the person that found it with possession of child porn if he said anything to anyone about it. And by the way the informant worked at a boys and girls club and it was a video tape the an officer didn’t completely tape over and used to tape an event at this place.

    What are the laws and/or regulations about cops, while conducting official business, recording on personal equipment such as a GoPro? I wonder how many acts of corruption performed by Jackson were caught on that camera to never be part of public record.

    Funny how the uniformed officer instantly assumed he would be set up for the fall. he knows police tactics and knew someone had to get screwed and blamed however he is a employee not a by standing citizen and if his superior says don’t film…then if you like your job… you don’t film.

    • Film The Police Always

      Cops are just as paranoid about cops as the people are. The problem with the police really starts with the State Attorneys. They allow bad cops to fester, and the so-called good cops think wow, I can get away with this and that because they got away with it. The next thing you know the entire department is one big rotting cesspool. If there is ever to be change, then that change has to start with a State Attorney with a spine. One who isn’t afraid to charge a cop like they would a normal citizen. Until then, the rotting cesspool that we all know as THE POLICE will continue to thrive. Hold the State Attorneys accountable. If they are sneaky or dirty then follow them and their family’s. If they go to church, then march outside demanding his dirty ass to quit. Follow their kids to school and march in front of the schools. TURN THE HEAT ON until their family’s realize that the heat is too much and they also want their dirty rotten husband/wife to quit. DEMAND CHANGE!

    Not saying the Lieutenant is blameless, but Jackson does not look good at all in the video. He looked to be ultra aggressive when the guy opened his door. He should be fired.

    Man, you couldn’t make this shit up, it’s straight out of a movie script. Wolf Pack Cops eating their own. Was this a set-to ease Jackson off the force ? It’s too convenient a set of circumstances for me. Is Jackson a rouge cop or a guy who just won’t take any shit from anybody?
    Should Jackson join PINAC and become a citizen video journalist?
    You have to apply the parallax principle to this, step back and view this whole scenario from a different angle. It’s the Miami version of LA RAMPARTS.

  • MongoLikesCandy

    Jackson seems non-aggressive up until the car door opens. His response makes me think that the IA guy was the angrily getting out, which would probably have been justified in controlling an out of control driver. IA’s not thrown to the ground until after he takes a swing at Jackson.

    I dont know a thing about Jackson outside of this incident, but I gotta call this one in his favor.

    • 25986

      When you’re pulled over you don’t get out unless you’re asked to.if you do it is an act of aggression against the officer who then has the right to control the situation which he did.he did it by the book.

    • David

      You know everything on earth, stronger/powerful person are at least 80% of time they are right even they did something wrong. the rest 20% they are wrong if they are unlucky. This law is not man made law but it is natural law. that why stronger or powerful person almost is right in most situation even they did wrong. for instance, most of jurors just police statement than normal person statement because they are holding power even or just sometime they did not tell the truth

  • JJ_Swiontek

    Interesting look into the mind of the police in that they take violent exception to being tagged for breaking the law. Even more interesting look into IA. Sort of a ‘masters’ of the ‘masters’ mindset. “Don’t cross IA or you’re dead.” I can see that.

  • IcedTeaParty

    Rumble in the pigpen.

    Two clowns in a pissing match, both should be fired.

    Marcel Jackson, however, should’ve been fired years ago; he has a massive history of police impropriety which includes 4th Amendment violations of entering a home without a warrant, multiple violations of policy where he used force against citizens without properly documenting them, and one interesting case where a citizen’s cell phone went missing after the citizen was arrested by Marcel Jackson…he claims he doesn’t know what happened to it.

    One case where he arrested someone for DUI, and then never conducted any DUI testing.

    Picking sides in this battle is like choosing a favorite turd from the load a homeless man just dropped on the sidewalk.

    FYI, one of Marcel’s multiple suspensions was for using the F word on a traffic stop; if the Lt wants to claim some kind of occupational immunity for speeding, then he should be disciplined for using the F word as well.

    • Film The Police Always

      How do you have all this information on Marcel? I’d say you are probably part of the police spin machine?

        No they aren’t, the black cop is a lot bigger and was the initial aggressor. He needs to be fired before he hurts or kills an innocent person..

        • Kerfuffulator

          A lot bigger? I don’t think so. At 1:01 in the video, they are face to face. There is NOT a strong discrepancy in size. The uniformed officer looks a bit taller & the plain clothes officer looks a bit huskier. aka roughly the same size. It must be your bigoted fear of black folks that makes them look so big to you.

          • whitemanzen

            Fear of black folks, you presume to much, you must be one of those black folks with a chip on their shoulders because his ancestors were sold as slaves because they were to weak and stupid to be free.

  • Film The Police Always

    I say we all hope and pray that more and more of these cops start turning on each other. Especially black cops. Out of all the people in the U.S.A., black people are hated by more groups then any other race. Cubans can’t stand black people! Black cops get disciplined more then any other race in law enforcement, and it’s because of the black hatred. White cops might act like they are friends, but in reality, they can’t stand their black counter parts. They see all black cops as niggers, and it’s sad that black people are treated this bad. Black cops need to stick together and form a coalition within their departments. Blacks need to have an outside source where they can release all their information to seek out revenge against these racist cops. Don’t take the high road because good guys finish last. Get revenge. Hell, look what they did to Chris Dorner. That man was railroaded but no one cared when it was happening, and no one cares after the white cops intentionally set fire to that cabin to kill him. Hell, the only thing missing from the cabin burning scene were WHITE HOODS.

    Black cops need to start communicating and they need to start turning the corruption on it’s knees. GO GET EM! GET EVEN! These white cops and Cuban cops are laughing at you black cops.

    The internal audio from the GoPro is crappy, but all you have to do is look at the body language of everyone involved to see the immediate switch from ‘attack dog’ posture when the three backup cops arrive to ‘lap dog’ posture once they realize it’s The Lieutenant on the ground.

    Had it been just another ordinary disposable citizen on the ground, they’d have escalated the situation into a full force beatdown with tasers, bruised and broken limbs, facial abrasions and the usual bucketload of verbal derision, excuse-creating and after-fight joking we find in all other dash cam videos.

        hey Carlos, bigots are not interested in relevant cultural nuances.. it’s way too much like all that edumakashun they keep avoiding

  • Plage

    It’s kinda sad that they didn’t start shooting each other ..

  • Barry O Ultimate Failure

    bro dude muh dog…i’m surprised we didn’t hear a few “my nigg@z”

  • o0THX11380o

    The fact that they didn’t still give him a ticket for speeding and assaulting a police officer says everything. Cops should not be allowed to police themselves. It’s just beyond all logic.

  • Ernie Menard

    Both of these two power tripping assholes need to be fired. Look at the portion of the recording at around 1:50, Jackson puts his hands on the guy again, pushing him in towards the car. This is after the other cops let him up, presumably because they recognized the guy as an internal affairs lieutenant. If that act alone doesn’t demonstrate anger at having his [Jacksons] authority questioned I don’t know what else could.

  • Jackson Covers Things Up

    Jackson is a piece of shit, too …

  • Jack Spade

    HAHA – I wish cops would do this to their own every single day in every single department. Power corrupts.

  • jake

    I am glad the system was unfair and unjust and kicked his worthless badge toting ass to the curb in an unfair manner…Know he can feel what he has made others feel.

  • Mike

    Why did IA get out of the car? Was he told to get out of the car? If not it’s IA that should have stayed in the car. If he was told to get out of the car, the cop ambushed him when he stepped out. My old ears couldn’t pick up the conversation

  • Daniel Salvatore

    Now, the wonderful question is, “how does the IA Lt. feel an officer should respond to a private citizen when that citizen opens the door, making contact with the officer, and attempts to exit a vehicle during a traffic stop in opposition to the officer’s commands?”

    and how many times has the IA Lt. let officers off the hook for being overly aggressive against citizens who did exactly the same as he did, or much, much less?

    it would be hysterically funny if it weren’t so maddening. our servants will only ever learn to behave themselves if they are forced to. the more we allow them to get away with, the more they will try to get away with, and the more they will test the boundaries, like the power-tripping children that most of them are.

  • Dave Infinger

    Forgive me but am I the only one who sees that Jackson knew he was a cop, knew he was his superior yet still slammed the door on his superior and refused to let him get out of his car. Then he goes on the radio and calls his friend and says, my air conditioning is working. “my recorder is on is what he was saying. He admits in that conversation that he knew the Ramers was a cop. Now if he is treating cops like this, how do you think he is treating the public? It was a good call to let him go.

  • DP2010

    Jackson using a personal GoPro hints at pre-existing distrust that IA uncovers the truth.

  • Htimez2

    I dont believe the punk cop, the lieutenant was in the right.

  • Htimez2

    the last video proves the cop lied on the phone he told rick he pulled him cause he almost hit a pedestrian yet his light was on to pull him over before the car even got to the pedestrian road.


    Sorry….but clearly the uniformed officer was overly aggressive……Open and shut case! “He thought he was going to have to shoot him”? Why?….He body slammed the dude and had total control…

  • Dave Infinger

    This uniformed cop was itching for a fight when he walked up to the car. He was overly aggressive with IA officer. The things that sunk his boat are he video taped this and then allowed it to be leaked on the internet. No other cop could trust him after that. Furthermore, it was obvious he was being deceptive by telling Rick his air condition is on. How stupid does this mutt think his superiors are? He was saying, ” I’m recording you now so be careful what you say. It was plain for anyone to see that this uniformed cop knew the IA officer was a cop. He was pissed because the IA officer asked him why he was not shaving. His response should have been that he had a profile for not being in uniform. He did not respond that way so chances are he was out of uniform. He betrayed his fellow officers when he allowed the video to be posted on line and that my friend is why he was let go, and that is why he should have been let go.

      “The things that sunk his boat are he video taped this and then allowed
      it to be leaked on the internet. No other cop could trust him after
      that.” If they are not doing nothing wrong they have nothing to fear… Right?

    • Bill Larson

      “The things that sunk his boat are he video taped this and then allowed
      it to be leaked on the internet. No other cop could trust him after

      But as members of the public have been told over and over again by law enforcement about prevalent surveillance by municipalities, “If you are not doing anything wrong you have nothing to fear…”

    • U.S.M.C. Liberal

      Itching for a fight? Who opened the car door?

  • Rodger Farmer

    If the internal affairs cop, was wrong!!! He should pay!!!! Kuddos to the officer who pulled him over!!!!

  • Rodger Farmer

    Dude don’t sweat it!!!! You are good!!! I respect police l like you!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Rodger Farmer

    “You break my glasses”, you should have told him he’s lucky, you didn’t break his face!!!!! I respect you sir!!!!!!

  • Adam William Majkowski

    That is called a set up. Regular cops setting up and framing an internal affairs cop. Cop on cop crime is not interesting.

  • Bill Larson

    Based on the low res video the IA Lieutenant should be fired. He was driving extremely recklessly. He was also according to reports going to lunch, not responding to an emergency.

    Well, things in the USA’s law enforcement seem to be getting worse. When a former Reagan official starts to make warnings you know we better pay attention:

    • jcfromnj

      I’m familiar with Paul Craig Roberts writings. 3 words that sum up Law Enforcement today:
      Aggressive, Sociopath, and Psychopathic personality are the main points in his interview.
      There is a standardized test use in Law enforcement screening that looks for the aggressive personality traits in hiring. The other two are just icing on the cake.

    So are they saying an Officer from the IAD is exempt from getting a speeding ticket when off duty. I don’t think so!!!!!!

  • U.S.M.C. Liberal

    That officer was 100% right. That Lt punk should have been arrested. The minute he opened his car door and tried getting out is game over. The Lt. knows it, and any police officer knows it.

    • Maji_Baridi

      I’m late to this story; did officer Jackson get fired or is he still on the force? If I were him, I would have kept that video secret and waited till they fired me and I would filed a huge lawsuit and run the department & city broke! It’s quite disturbing on how the department turned on him. Sometime last year over here, a state trooper pulled over a speeding SUV and it turned out that the driver was a higher ranking officer. The trooper had a chat with him and let him go. Unfortunately for the higher ranking cop, police cars have dashboard mounted cameras and all footage of traffic stops are reviewed by supervisors. What happened next was that the superiors were informed and the patrol officer was instructed to write a ticket day later. Traffic stops need to be recorded to erase doubt and protect both the officer and the traffic offender.
      The Miami PD seems like a cesspool.

  • ray

    It’s coming back to haunt them. There’s a price coming due for decades of corruption. For ruining good peoples lives with lies and immoral conduct. Film them and they will go away.

  • ethanspapa

    I saw the black cop trying to pull his weapon out to kill the white driver because he wanted to identify himself

  • OnlineRefugee

    Well everyone may not like what goes on, but that’s the reality of any workplace. Politics, favoritism, nepotism, it is the daily fare anywhere.

    I’m sure it was beyond Jackson to do so, but the smart play, at least if he likes his job, was to suck it up, get on his knees and tearfully beg for the lieutenant’s mercy and forgiveness.

    Bottom line: once you know it is the boss, or someone far senior than you, you don’t give him or her sheet.

  • tomhoser

    Wow; how many man hours of taxpayer-ed time are we grinding through with this total bullshit? How many calls unanswered, how many police vehicles rendered useless while this thing plays out? How much gas wasted? How much paperwork?

  • Nick Talbot

    Good work. Thanks for keeping an eye on these lowlifes.

  • Tony Rodriguez

    Yea I saw the video before here, and I see a man open his door and instantly getting attacked by a lying sack of shit police with a badge. Look at the video really good and see if the door hit the officer as he claims/lies. Hell no it doesn’t. The door fully opens and the officer’s leg on the outside doesn’t even move, if it would of hit him his body would of moved which it didn’t. But you can see the officer on the outside instantly attack the one I the car. That officer is a fucking liar, and imagine how many others he has sent to prison like this? Take that badge from him and throw his ass in prison. Also investigate him for other assault’s and illegal arrest. Fucking piece of shit.
