Since then, Chief Exposito has been the subject of several press articles questioning his credibility, including Chuck Rabin explaining away the Mayor's lies about the "predator" video and Dianne Fernandez telling us how scared cops are.
Lost in all this is the role, or lack thereof, of Mayor Tomas Regalado.
In his typical way, the Mayor is using others to do his dirty work. First it was using Reverend Dunn as his errand house boy, and now it's using his friends in the press.
As Mayor Regalado demonstrated with Chief John Timoney, he knows exactly how to get rid of a police chief.
The Mayor is jeopardizing the safety of the city by not taking decisive action on this matter.
Already it is being rumored that heavy divisions exist within the City of Miami Police department, and we all know the saying about a house divided.
Meanwhile, we already have six police shootings and violent crime continues to rise.
So why won't Tomas fire Expo?
Either the Mayor really has no balls, or Expo is holding something over the Mayor's head.
