NMPD: And the hits just keep on comin’ (UPDATED: Haitian Creole and Spanish translations posted)

North Miami Assistant Police Chief Larry Juriga thought he was so clever when he conspired with his cronies to frame Commander Emile Hollant for the shooting of Charles Kinsey, an unarmed black man with his hands up.

City Manager Larry Spring thought he was so clever when, in an overzealous rush to judgment, he decided to announce at a press conference that he suspended Commander Hollant without pay before learning all the facts at his disposal.

Councilman Scott Galvin thought he was so clever when he hogged the microphone at that presser to publicly chastise the Commander, claiming he “totally violated his trust from the public to protect and serve,” and then told a Channel 10 reporter that Hollant didn’t deserve an apology even though he was cleared of all wrongdoing by the State Attorney’s Office.

North Miami is Number Two on this list. Thank you, Larry Juriga!

It hasn’t been a very good week for North Miami Police Department’s Assistant Chief Larry Juriga.

For starters, the as yet unpublished results of my October 31st NMPD Unofficial Survey are thus far less than flattering for this wannabe Police Chief.  (Stay tuned.)

On November 1st, Miami New Times’ reporter Jessica Lipscomb published an even less flattering article about Juriga’s infamous “redneck” discrimination complaint.

Of course, we here at VotersOpinion just had to  follow up her article with our own usual snarky commentary.

But just when Larry though it was safe to go back in the water – figuratively speaking, of course – the Miami New Times once again reminded North Miami residents how tough white people have it in today’s society.

Especially a high ranking, and very white, Assistant Chief of Police. Continue reading


Mazel Tov, Larry Juriga! You (and your “redneck” complaint) made headlines! 😂

In case you missed it, the Miami New Times published an article on Wednesday all about NMPD Assistant Chief Larry Juriga.

In North Miami Interim Police Chief Once Claimed Discrimination for Being White “Redneck,” reporter Jessica Lipscomb wrote that when Chief Gary Eugene was fired, Juriga was appointed “as an interim replacement. But the decision to promote Juriga has raised eyebrows from many residents in the heavily Haitian community. Despite the fact that the police force remains overwhelmingly white, the interim chief filed an EEOC complaint as recently as two years ago claiming he was being discriminated against as an ‘anglo.'”

As we’ve already pointed out numerous times, Larry Juriga as Chief would be a disaster of epic proportions.  But for old times’ sake, let’s recap. Continue reading


Dirty Tricks and Outright Lies: A Day in the Life of Shady Boy-Lobbyist Evan Ross

Boy-Lobbyist Evan Ross has gone way beyond shady.

We now have irrefutable proof that he’s a smarmy, vicious liar.

Courtesy of the Broward County State Attorney’s Office.

First he got himself blacklisted in North Miami Beach for his unscrupulous attempt to circumvent the bidding process for CH2M Hill and for his unregistered lobbying of elected officials.

He was then fired as a “consultant” (a/k/a secret lobbyist) for Waste Management after publicly making libelous comments about its newest client, the City of North Miami Beach and its Mayor. Continue reading


The Kissel Chronicles: No one is safe. NO ONE!

We’ve already seen how North Miami Police Sergeant Joseph Kissell harasses female employees, and how his cronies at the department cover up for him, but what he did to a North Miami man, his common-law wife and their two minor children is even more shocking.

On November 16, 2005, Mr. Alberic Israel was involved in a shooting incident in which his wife, Sheila Mesadieu was injured.  Mr. Israel drove her to the hospital and while he was in the waiting room, the police arrived, and he was arrested by Joey Kissel.

That was only the beginning of his nightmare. Continue reading


PREPOSTEROUS! Myron Rosner gets busted, Sarah Zabel gets a pass!

Absolutely no one should be surprised that North Miami Beach ex-Mayor/CONVICTED FELON Myron Rosner got himself arrested again.

We’ve always known that Myron is a liar and a cheat, and that his only purpose in life is to con people out of their hard earned money.

The big shock here is that his wife, CIRCUIT COURT JUDGE SARAH ZABEL, didn’t do the perp walk alongside her hooligan husband.

Myron was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly  inducing Dr. David Rosenbaum to invest $150,000.00 in a real estate venture and then absconding with all the money, according to the press release issued by the Miami State Attorney’s Office.

His wife, Sarah signed an affidavit attached to the arrest warrant, (see page 3), claiming that she did not participate in Myron’s investment scam, was unaware that her name was used, never communicated with the investor, and had no knowledge of fraud.

Yeah, right! Continue reading


The Kissel Chronicles: How NMPD cops protect and serve … EACH OTHER!

Yikes!  The corruption never ends!

It’s bad enough that certain members of the North Miami Police Department’s command staff continue to protect bad cops, such as sexual predator Jodlyn Antoine, but they also go to great lengths to keep the public from finding out about them.

Fortunately, we are persistent.

Once we started digging into the maliciousness of serial offender Sergeant Joseph Kissel, we encountered similar roadblocks.

In our ongoing “investigation” of his discrimination and harassment of Crisis Intervention Specialist Natacha Jean-Francois, we uncovered yet another document that NMPD Major Franzia Brea tried to hide from us.

It didn’t work. Continue reading
