Miami Chief Exposito’s Fate May Be Decided Monday


A hearing last Friday to decide the fate of Miami Police Chief Miguel Exposito turned into theater of the absurd, reports the Miami Herald. The city manager bumbled his way through the first few hours, and cops, lawyers, and commissioners got into screaming matches over legal technicalities.

After 17 hours of bluster, and at times blistering cross examination, commissioners didn't finish what they had set out to do: Determine whether Exposito should be fired for disobeying orders from City Manager Johnny Martinez. That — in all likelihood — will be decided some Monday when commissioners gather once again, this time to hear summations from the attorneys and vote to decide whether or not the chief should stay.
