Ever since Rosh Lowe’s tweet this morning, eleven hours ago, I’ve been waiting for the story to break.
Shortly after the first one, Mr. Lowe tweeted a second time:
Per North Miami Police two people killed one injured in weekend shooting @wsvn

I was hoping to see something on Channel 7’s noon broadcast.
The 4:00 news?
5:00? 5:30? 6:00? 6:30?
Let’s see how long Chief Lenny can keep North Miami residents in the dark about a double homicide.
Let’s see how long he can keep up the pretense that “the Crime Index Rating for NM is the same as Aventura.”
Since the North Miami Police Department’s Public Information Officer hasn’t seen fit to inform the media of the details of this double homicide, the residents of North Miami have no idea when or where this incident took place, how it took place, or even if the suspect or suspects are still at large.
THIS IS A MATTER OF PUBLIC SAFETY!
How can North Miami residents protect themselves from a potentially violent, possibly fatal, attack if they don’t even know that a double murder took place in their own city?
Of all the unethical, unprofessional and downright corrupt actions Police Chief Leonard Burgess has engaged in, this is one of his worst offenses yet. Not informing the public of such a heinous crime is just unbelievably irresponsible!
This time, if City Manager Aleem Ghany doesn’t do something – and quick – he will be just as culpable for the negligent behavior of the Police Chief he refuses to fire.
For tonight, however, I urge North Miami residents to get inside, lock your doors, and stay away from your windows.
You have no idea if someone is lurking in the shadows … armed and dangerous.
Good night and good luck.
