We are always complaining about cops failing to respond in a timely fashion and/or giving a lax response once they arrive on the scene. Now, there’s proof…and it’s offered by the police department! The good cops are fed up too!
According to the Daily Mail, an entire police squad in the Kendall neighborhood was disciplined after being caught “canoodling” with women, shopping, drinking coffee, and basically shirking their duties to the people of that community. Dispatchers are always looking for officers that are nearest to an emergency to respond and this group ignored them.
After a 2010 investigation of officers: Dario Socarras, Jose Huerta, and Sgt. Jennifer Gonzalez were all fired in September 2012, according to MDPD Internal Affairs. But the worst of the offenders seems to be Socarras who was caught doing all of the above. He even ignored the emergency calls for an unconscious five-month-old baby. Gonzalez, who is Socarras supervisor, was even recorded having coffee with him during calls for nine minutes…when she wasn’t shopping at Target and other stores.
All kinds of emergencies were ignored by the crew. It appears that the only commitment these cops made when becoming officers was to a dereliction of duty. Folks are being robbed and dying and this guy is talking about he’s caught in traffic and other excuses. Altogether, six cops were disciplined, the other three were suspended without pay. But why did it take two years to fire them?!
