An investigation into Miami police officers on-duty conduct found six officers were ignoring 911 calls while instead kissing their girlfriends, shopping, and drinking coffee.
One 911 call involved an unconscious five-month-old baby. Video footage shows Miami police officer Dario Socarras ignoring dispatch orders to save the child, while drinking coffee for nine minutes and lying to the dispatcher about being en route. Paramedics eventually reached the unconscious child, while Socarras never went but still, the officer wrote in his daily report that he attended the scene.
And Socarras is only one of six officers caught neglecting their duties: after being followed and caught on surveillance video by Internal Affairs, two officers and a sergeant were fired and three were suspended without pay for dereliction of duty from the Miami Dade Police Department.
The footage of the incidents documents the departments worst case of delinquency in its history.
Aside from ignoring the dispatch orders to save the unconscious baby, Socarras was also found to have ignored armed robbery and residential burglary calls. Instead, the officer was found kissing and cuddling with his girlfriend in the parking lot of a shopping mall on two different occasions.
Socarras was also caught misleading a crime victim, promising to fill out a police report about items that were stolen form her, while telling dispatchers that no crime had occurred. The officer proceeded to give the victim a phony case number.

Let us see: Dario Socaras, Jennifer Gonzalez, Jose Huerta and amazingly Fausto Lopez.
Guarantee you police corruption is rampant in the cities. You don’t really think all this drug gang activity goes on without payoffs.
Tip of iceberg I bet.
And we’re supposed to give up our guns and let the the “police” protect us?
When hell freezes over....
Miami is a sewer. Avoid it!
I just read somewhere that the three fired ones aren’t giving statements to the media, because they’re trying to get their jobs back!
Any time a citizen films the police they are told to turn over the phone/camera or they will be arrested.You also have prosecutors who want to charge citizens with anti wiretapping laws when they film the police because it’s either about officer safety or the citizen is obstructing the law.They have no problem filming you how ever unless there is a problem retrieving the tape showing how you fell,”accidentally”.
