Frantzie Watch: Chaos in the Chambers! The Devil Strikes again!

The proceedings of the North Miami Beach Special Commission Meeting scheduled for 6:00 PM this evening to choose a Replacement Commissioner came to a screeching halt when City Attorney Jose Smith announced that the absentee ballot fraudulently “re-elected,” and finally ousted, Faux Commissioner Frantz Pierre, filed a lawsuit to to keep the seat he vacated by pretending to be sick for over 120 days.

But not too sick to try to steal city trucks from the North Miami Beach Public Works Department!

The lawsuit was filed mere hours before the duly scheduled and announced special meeting.  In a late afternoon telephone hearing, Ben Keuhne, Esq. somehow convinced Circuit Court Judge Dennis J. Murphy to sign an Order Granting Motion for Temporary Injunctive Relief. Continue reading


Frantzie Watch: Replacing the Weasel (Hint: This one’s a no-brainer!)

Thursday evening, the North Miami Beach Mayor and Commissioners will hold another special meeting to choose someone to fill the seat vacated by the ousted Frantz Pierre.  They received applications from eleven individuals who hope to take his place.  Regardless of which candidate is selected, the seat will be up for grabs in this November’s municipal election.

While several excellent candidates applied to be the seat filler, the choice is obvious.

Or, at least it should be.

In case they need a reminder, let’s do the math. Continue reading


Frantzie Watch: The Weasel’s gone, but the heat’s still on!

In case you haven’t heard by now, former North Miami Beach Commissioner Frantz Pierre, who was “re-elected” by absentee ballot fraud, not only lost his frivolous lawsuit against City Attorney Jose Smith and former Deputy City Manager Mac Serda, but he was also finally ejected from the dais for not doing his job.

And, yeah, we’ll miss him like we miss an abscessed tooth after a root canal.

On the evening of Monday, February 5, 2018, the Mayor and Commission held a special meeting for the purpose of discussing “The Process of Filling a Vacant Commission Seat Under the City Charter (Mayor and Commission).”

As predicted, Frantzie’s former colleague/fellow absentee ballot fraudster, Phyllis Smith, wasted no time defending the Weasel’s “honor.”

And in the next breath, she nominated her crony, William Dean, Esq., to take his place.

Alrighty then. Continue reading


Frantzie Watch: Karma is a beautiful thing!

Remember that time when the now-former, and always-fraudulent, “Commissioner” Frantz Pierre sued the City of North Miami Beach on the grounds of discrimination, and claimed that the Defendant caused him severe emotional distress and impotence?  (Yeah, we’re still giggling about that.)

Despite his lawyer’s failed attempts (not just once, but twice!) to delay the trial due to his “quadruple bypass major heart surgery,” United States District Judge Frederico A. Moreno issued a Scheduling Order Setting Trial, which was supposed to commence on Monday, January 22, 2018.

Well, put that popcorn away.  The trial was over before it even began. Continue reading


The Kissel Chronicles: NMPD’s Disappearing Public Records (and other fun facts to know and tell)

In case you missed this Miami Herald story, Martin County commissioner arrested as part of widening public records scandal,  the opening paragraph serves as a reminder that the cover-up is usually worse than the crime.

“In a move that should send a chill down the spines of thousands of elected officials in Florida, former Martin County Commissioner Anne Scott, a retired judge originally from Chicago, and current Commissioner Ed Fielding were booked Tuesday night into the county jail after being indicted in a public records scandal that already cost taxpayers upward of $25 million.”

The two city officials, ages 69 and 73, respectively, are facing potential jail time of up to a year for “failure to permit inspection and copying of public records.”

This ongoing scandal has already cost Martin County taxpayers $500,000.00 in a civil lawsuit.  The county will also potentially cough up $25 million to settle another.

The two public employees who messed with public records are most likely less concerned with the spending of public funds than they are with spending twelve months in the hoosegow.

Public officials over in North Miami, however, may have missed the memo that public records belong to the public. Continue reading


NMPD Sgt. McNally’s complaint, Jeff Cazeau’s BOOM!, North Miami’s quandary.

Timing is everything

We find it curious indeed that Sergeant Patrick McNally filed his Charge of Discrimination with the Florida Commission on Human Rights and EEOC on August 22, 2016.

McNally, who is white, complained that he was passed over for promotion to commander in favor of a Haitian, a Hispanic and an African-American.  He alleged that the three other Sergeants, Emile Hollant, Rafael Estrugo and Angelo Brinson, were chosen over him because the “police department has a history of discrimination against whites in promotions.”  He also claimed that “none of the positions were posted.”

Here’s the thing. Continue reading


#NMPDsoWhite (but, apparently, not white enough for some)

We’re not sure what was on North Miami Police Sergeant Patrick McNally’s mind when he filed his discrimination lawsuit last week (as reported by the Miami New Times) claiming he wasn’t promoted because he’s white, but we’re betting he didn’t quite think it all the way through.

In what can only be described as a Hold My Beer Moment, this white dude just picked a fight with two Haitians, two African Americans and a Hispanic in a bar where he’s outnumbered by something like 88% of the population.

As evidence of discrimination, McNally bases his entire complaint on two allegations.

His first “smoking gun” is that former Police Chief Gary Eugene, “a Haitian-born acting police chief,” “stated in a YouTube interview prior to the promotions that he wanted his police department to ‘mirror my community,’ which is Hiatian, African-American and Hispanic.”

If McNally was hoping to get sympathy from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, he was sadly mistaken. Continue reading


The conspiracy to frame NMPD Commander Hollant: Who wins, who loses, who gets promoted?

Larry Juriga always wanted to be a cop.  After all, his daddy was a cop.  His uncle was a cop.  And besides, he couldn’t cut it on the gridiron.  Or pretty much anywhere else.  So the dumb jock quit Parks & Rec, put away his football helmet, and joined the NMPD family business where he could still tackle someone to the ground every once in a while.

It didn’t take long for Larry Juriga’s white privilege, not to mention his family name, to allow him to rapidly move up the food chain at the North Miami Police Department.  He was appointed as Assistant Chief after only 16 years as a cop, but then hit the proverbial glass ceiling.  Since he was so used to having undeserved promotions being handed to him, and even though he wasn’t even remotely qualified for the position (after all, he failed his Lieutenant’s exam, but was promoted anyway), he actually believed he was entitled to be the Chief of Police.

After five years as Assistant Chief, a frustrated Juriga decided it was time for drastic measures.  On July 6, 2015, he filed a discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, hilariously claiming that he has been “marginalized” for being white.  Juriga whined to the EEOC that he had been twice been “passed over” for promotion to chief in favor of a “black assistant chief” (Stephen Johnson), and then a second time by a “Haitian-American” (Marc Elias).

When the incompetent Leonard “Chief Lenny” Burgess was forced to resign in 2016, Larry Juriga believed the Holy Grail was finally within his reach.  He had to be positively furious when, two months later, he watched the appointment and swearing in of yet another Haitian-American as Chief of Police, Gary Eugene.
