Miami cop turned up at a police station in full uniform, with a gun and a mask with the words “TRUMP no more bullshit.”
Can someone point me to the good cops that everyone keeps talking about?
Daniel Ubeda, in full uniform with badge and gun wearing his Trump mask inside of the polling location in the government center.This is city-funded voter intimidation. Ubeda should be suspended immediately. (Tweeted Miami Democratic Party official Steve Simeonidis.
According to the Miami New-Times, Simeonidis photographed the officer, whom he identified as Daniel Ubeda, at the Government Center in downtown Miami, and tweeted the image shortly thereafter.
“What he did was taxpayer-funded intimidation,” Simeonidis tells New Times. “Any reasonable person would be unnerved to see a man with a gun, a badge, and a Trump mask walking right by them as they’re casting their ballots.”
Mayor of Miami Francis Suarez a Republican tweeted out ‚I have spoken to Chief Colina and we agree that the officer’s behavior is unacceptable. This was a violation of departmental policy. He is under investigation and disciplinary measures will be taken.
Dozens of people, including Miami-Dade voters, responded to Simeonidis’ tweet with outrage.
“Unacceptable… There should be no political messaging as part of our officers’ uniforms,” city commissioner Ken Russell tweeted.
In an interview with WIOD-AM (610) radio host Brian Mudd at 11:35 this morning, City of Miami Police Chief Jorge Colina said the department was aware of the incident and would take “appropriate action.”
Obviously, this is a violation of our policy,” Colina told Mudd. “You’re not supposed to be campaigning for anyone [while] in uniform.”
THEN THERE IS THE POLICE UNION
Tommy Reyes, president of the Miami Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), said in a statement that the union is also aware of the photo.
“We would like to remind everyone, police officers also have First Amendment rights under the U.S. Constitution as well as the right to vote in uniform pursuant to Florida State Law,” Reyes said in an FOP press release. “We would also like to state that the National FOP has endorsed President Donald Trump’s re-election.”
These are the unions that continue to encourage their members to murder, commit assaults, and break rules the rest of society lives by.
Even when breaches of law and rules are indefensible by their blatancy, these thug unions find ways to try to add justification to these egregious actions.
And while you are at it, remember these events when they call you soliciting money for their members.
