While you were sleeping, North Miami Police responded to yet another shooting at the Center Court Apartments, located at NE 18th Avenue and 149th Street.
This is the same building where, less than two months ago, Vinel L’Amour was murdered at gunpoint while he was on duty manning the security booth.
Earlier this month, Police Chief Leonard Burgess sent out his now infamous email to City Manager, Mayor and Council, defending the crime rate statistics for North Miami. He wrote:
Head Cheerleader for Team Burgess, City Clerk Michael Etienne, also weighed in with his own Words of Wisdom:
I fully expect Police Chief Burgess to spring right into action and send out another public email stating:
MEMO TO THE RESIDENTS OF CENTER COURT APARTMENTS:
SHOOTINGS? WHAT SHOOTINGS?
EXCEPT FOR ALL THOSE PESKY SOCIO-ECONOMIC STATS,
NORTH MIAMI IS AS SAFE AS AVENTURA!
YOUR POLICE CHIEF LEONARD BURGESS
WHEW! That’s a relief!
Time for another NMPD flag football game!
