Miami Police Chief Miguel Exposito: Considered the Cost!


Miami Police Chief Miquel Exposito must have considered all possible options before stepping forward to reveal that he had been propositioned to take the money, [$200,000 and counting] and silently disappear into the sunset. After more than 40 years on the job, he knew that taking the money would have been and all or nothing deal. All the years spent serving the public would be washed down the drain and his reputation ruin.

Once it would be revealed that he took a “sweetheart of a deal “to leave and be quiet, there would be no turning back and whatever information that would subsequently surface, he would have to take it under the chin.

There is a price to pay when an individual decides to stand their ground and fight the principles on city hall or any government entity, who is trying to keep the skeletons in the closet. From the City of Miami’s standpoint it would be the “injured party” versus “Capitol Hill.” History will confirm that few people have the intestinal fortitude to take on such a battle.

When the “code of silence” is broken at such a high level, the parties involve scurry about like a ”tom cat chasing a mouse.” Cover-up operations kick into high gear. The Chief Financial Officer, Larry Spring immediately resigns because now the cat is out the bag. City Manager, Tony Crapp, Jr., is hot on his trails to resign next because the players are high and deep.

It is clear now, why the report that Paul Philip’s prepared for the City of Miami lacked substance. Mr. Philip’s no doubt stumbled upon the proposition that was made to Chief Exposito and found his hands tied, since it was Tony Crapp, Jr., the city manager at the time, who hired him to investigate Chief Exposito. There were also commissioners whose names kept popping up along the way, as they would be the ones to approve such a deal.

Offering $200,000 to Miami Police Chief Miquel Exposito brings the term “misappropriating funds” to a whole new level, considering the City of Miami is trying to dig itself out of a $40 Million deficit.

“Cooking the Books” is considered normal business operations along with co-mingling funds, transferring funds back and forth, and allocating funds into accounts that were previously denied by federal or state run programs is normal government operations as long as it’s kept under wraps.

Now that the “cat is out the bag” it’s going to be interesting to see how the next scene will play out. It’s intermission people! Go get your popcorn and soda and hurry back to your seats. You don’t want to miss a single moment of this fascinating play!

  1. History will show that Chief Exposito is an honorable man, and quite possibly, the best chief of police the City of Miami has ever had.
    Under his command, the Miami Police Department earned the only award it has ever in its history bestowed by the prestigious International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP). While at the heim, violent crimes, such as armed robberies and rapes dropped to levels not seen since the 70’s.

    Exposito is slated to bring his civil case for reinstatement to court in the near future, and when all the facts are revealed, many will be astounded at the evidence he brings, showing the corruption that is going on in the City of Miami.

    • Sam,
      Former Miami Police Chief Miguel Exposito will certainly have his day in court and an opportunity to clear his name. I look forward to the very interesting details that his attorney will present in his defense and I’m sure many of the actions by others that go against what is considered legal work ethics will be exposed.

      Does this mean that Exposito exceeded his power and authority? That is yet to be determined!
