Miami Area Police Chief Resigns Amid Racial Profiling Charges

Police chief Matthew Boyd of the Miami Gardens Police Department resigned yesterday amid charges that officers racially profiled both customers and employees at a local convenience store. According to the Miami New Times, one employee was arrested 419 times for trespassing in the past five years.

The Florida chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) two days ago called on the Department of Justice to investigate “a systemic pattern and practice of intimidation by officers … against African American residents…”.

Miami Gardens, with a population of about 100,000, is a majority black suburb of Miami. It has one of the highest crime rates in the country.

I would hazard a guess that the crime rate was so high precisely because his police officers were so busy racially profiling innocent citizens that the criminals had carte blanche to operate at will.

Merry Cthulhumas!
