Is this open season on police in the print media? Or are too many officers behaving badly? A letter writer decries police frequenting Biogenesis as being pumped-up zeal. Another writer advises young people to stay away from Miami Beach rather than suggesting they behave cordially, keep hands in sight and make no threatening move when confronted by police.
Instead of rushing to judgment, we need to sit back and wait for the investigations to run their course.
Let’s remember that 39 officers have been killed in Miami-Dade in the line of duty since 1895. Response to a domestic disturbance, stopping a vehicle or dealing with a trespass may turn into more than it seemed. Aggressive police officers often get complaints because while on the job, they are always looking to protect and serve.
