The news is out: [The police department in Miami-Dade has dismissed two officers after one punched a black woman at Miami International Airport.
The department ordered an investigation into the incident on Wednesday night when a video – dated 1 July – was shared online.
Miami-Dade Police Director Alfredo Ramirez III wrote on Twitter that he was “shocked and angered” at the video, which showed an argument between two masked cops and one black woman.
Mr Ramirez III said on Wednesday that the video had been sourced via a police bodycam at the scene.
“Actions such as these undermine the hard work that we have invested in our community and causes my heart to break for our community and for the vast majority of our officers who dedicate their lives to serving our County,” said Mr Ramirez.
“I’ve immediately initiated an investigation and ordered that the involved officers be relieved of duty,” he added.
The video shows the black woman telling one Miami-Dade officer that he was “acting like you white when you really Black.”
She then approaches him and asks: “What you going to do?”
The officer hits the woman seconds later and pushes her to the floor of what appeared to be the check-in area at Miami’s international airport.]
A rat, zero, crybaby, losing his damn mind in a black on black crime. The lady is sitting on a pile of money.
