The last two weeks the Feds have been all over Miami and the STATE of FLORIDA how it’s doing DIRTY BUSINESS. Institutionalizing disabled children, Violating civil rights of the disabled, Haitians (creole speaking persons) and Black Cubans (Spanish speaking persons). DOJ found Miami City (police) guilty of using excessive force and violating citizens fourth amendment, The Securities and Exchange Commission charged the city of Miami and its former budget director with securities fraud. It’s time to take back the state of Florida, in the beginning the Confederacy invaded Florida because Seminole Indians allowed “Slaves” to run to Florida and be “FREE”. The Democracy is here, the Democracy is here! We are registering to VOTE in droves in 2014. Cleaning up Miami and its dirty politicking before it sinks into the ocean. I don’t need to mention, Stand your Ground! This is what it takes to stop a cities downfall before it needs to file bankruptcy and more human inflicted pain occurs.
MIAMI — The U.S. Justice Department filed a lawsuit against Florida on Monday, accusing the state of unnecessarily institutionalizing about 200 disabled children in nursing homes and cutting services that would allow them to receive care at home. Florida Agency for Health Care Administration Secretary Liz Dudek said in a statement Monday that the state had recently improved an “already strong program” and that 31 children with disabilities have been discharged from nursing facilities this year. Liz if the program was strong, Parents would not be complaining about the care of their children. Excerpt from Huffington Post.
TALLAHASSEE — The U.S. Department of Labor slammed the state of Florida for making it difficult for some unemployed people to get jobless benefits, particularly the disabled and those who speak Spanish or Creole.
Federal officials found that Florida violated the civil rights of unemployed individuals, beginning in 2011, when it required them to apply online for benefits and take an “assessment” before receiving any unemployment check.

Miami may not be the worst city in the nation for “organized retail crime” — that dubious distinction belongs to Los Angeles — but the problem has gotten so big that South Florida authorities Tuesday announced a new task force with the goal of containing it.
Retail theft, estimated to run as high as $30 billion a year nationwide, has spread widely as thieves have become part of criminal networks that move stolen goods through flea markets, on the Internet and overseas. More than 90 percent of America’s retailers have reported being victims of “ORC.”
Following a spree in which City of Miami Police shot and killed seven black men, many of them unarmed, in a span of eight months between 2010 and 2011, the Department of Justice has found that the department’s pattern of using excessive force was in violation of the Fourth Amendment. The feds’ years-long investigation also found that the department was lax in investigating wrongdoings and rarely held its own accountable. Complete story can be read in Miamiherald.com
SEC Charges City of Miami and Former Budget Director With Municipal Bond Offering Fraud Washington D.C., July 19, 2013 —
The Securities and Exchange Commission today charged the city of Miami and its former budget director with securities fraud in connection with several municipal bond offerings and other disclosures made to investors.
An SEC investigation found that beginning in 2008, Miami and Michael Boudreaux made materially false and misleading statements and omissions about certain interfund transfers in three 2009 bond offerings totaling $153.5 million. They similarly included false and misleading information in the city’s fiscal year 2007 and 2008 Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports (CAFRs) that are distributed to broad segments of the investing public, including investors in previously issued city debt. Boudreaux orchestrated the transfers from the city’s Capital Improvement Fund to its General Fund in order to mask increasing deficits in the General Fund, which is viewed by investors and bond rating agencies as a key indicator of financial health.
