As Marvin Dunn did, I, too, watched the video of Miami Det. Fernando Bosch striking a distraught relative of a homicide victim in Overtown.
However, I have a different opinion. In Miami and throughout this country, men, women, even babies in the womb are being killed and injured. So many of these victims are African-American.
I believe in profiling. That said, it must not be based on race or ethnicity alone.
I saw a gentleman charging the crime scene while police officers were busy protecting that scene from others. I saw Det. Bosch unsuccessfully try to stop him. I didn’t see “out-of-control cop hitting a person for no apparent reason.”
In this case, I saw a police officer doing his job with his fists and continuing until the subject was stopped and subdued.
