Now the New Times is catching on...
It was a recent Tuesday night at an Overtown community center, and McNeil had come to hear a presentation by Paul Philip, an ex-FBI chief hired by the City of Miami to investigate the Police Department's fatal shootings of seven black men since last summer. McNeil's son Travis was the most recent to die by a police bullet, and it was her first chance to meet Philip, a man she hoped would hold the department accountable.
So she was surprised when he announced that his research showed that under current Chief Miguel Exposito, police weren't shooting more often than they had under ex-Chief John Timoney.
Then she saw his report.
The first entry in Timoney's section read, "Dog Shot by Officer." So did the second. And the eighth. And the tenth.
"It was crazy to see him even associate the life of a person with the life of a dog," McNeil says.
What's also crazy is how the Herald and the rest of the media are giving Philip, Tony, and Regalado a free pass on this!
Where is the accountability?
Why is Philip being paid $70,000 to do something the Feds are doing FOR FREE?
Why won't Regalado, who was so quick in getting rid of Timoney, do the same with Exposito?
When Regalado says that in the inner city "violence will be met with violence" he is equating the residents of the inner city with dogs. So it is no surprise that Dunn, Crapp, and all the other "professional blacks" will echo the master's chorus.
To Chukie and all the other "journalists," start asking the tough questions, start holding the mayor and manager accountable, or continue to wallow in irrelevance.
