NO SHAME IN HIS GAME

THUG COP EDWARD LUGO HAS THE GALL TO TALK ABOUT ACTIONS SPEAKING LOUDER THAN WORDS, ESPECIALLY WHEN HIS ACTIONS SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN HIM FIRED, IF NOT INDICTED AND PUT IN PRISON

APRIL 10, 2016

The City of Miami Civil Service Board has 5 members. The unwritten rules governing who gets to be on the Board includes the fact that a member of AFSME will always have one seat, and that the Police and Fire Unions will alternate in having one of their members sit in the 2nd “union” seat.


This year it’s the cops turn, and to no one’s surprise, the FOP controlled by Javier Ortiz and his posse decided to put Edward Lugo forward as their representative.


Edward Lugo, aka the Thug Cop of Coconut Grove, last appeared in the Crespogram after Ortiz went on Twitter to pose with Lugo after he was elevated to Sergeant, and sending me a tweet thanking me for making them infamous.  

Ortiz, who in recent months ratcheted up his always inflammatory rhetoric by calling for Miami cops to boycott providing off-duty security for the Beyonce show later this month at the Marlin’s stadium, and engaging in his usual racist, misogynistic comments on any subject involving cops, to the point where Miami New Times a couple months ago labeled him one of Miami’s oddest characters for among other things, trying to encourage good cops to “stay away from the Miami Police Department.” can always be counted on to show his ass, because of all of the possible choices that the FOP could have put to fill this position, putting Lugo forward is like appointing a child molester to run an after-school program.


I first wrote about Lugo when I got a copy of the audio tape of him sitting in the back seat of an FBI undercover informant’s car being pitched by the informant to take part in providing escort service for drug runners running drugs up I-95.


Lugo excuse when the FBI turned the tape over to the Miami Police Department was that he really didn’t know why he was asked to get in the informant’s car, and that once in the back seat he fell asleep because he was so tired  from working off-duty jobs.


Even though the department wanted to fire him, Ortiz pulled some strings with the cops in IA, and they conveniently failed to advise him of the charges against him, until 8 days after the statute of limitations expired.  So instead of firing him, the only thing the department could do was suspend him without pay for 160 hours.


Then there was the case where he beat on Dorothy Mays, an 85 year old Black woman in the Grove for trying to walk home when he was providing traffic control on the street where she lived, and where a fire in a house down the block was being put out by the Fire Department. The whole sorry episode was detailed in the Civilian Review Board November 11, 2011,  meeting. (Page 12)


And then of course there was the infamous case when Lugo was one of the 4 cops, including his best pal Javier Ortiz, who beat up and tazered the guy at the Ultra Music Fenstical a couple years ago that resulted in the music festival having to pay a $400,000 settlement.


The important thing about that case was that Lugo, along with the other cops, again including Ortiz, all flagrantly lied under oath in their sworn depositions, and if we had a real State Attorney, instead of the sorry excuse of corruptness called Katherine Fernandez-Rundle, they all would have been charged an indicted for their behavior in this case..


So this is who the employees of the City of Miami are being asked to vote for to represent them on the Civil Service Board. A lying, thuggish cop whose actions do speak louder than words.


Edward Lugo is a bad cop, and no one should ever want a bad cop sitting on any kind of public board, especially when Lugo, besides being a bad cop is also Javier Ortiz’s sock puppet.


In case anyone thinks that Lugo’s bad behavior is only limited to the cases above, here’s his IA Profile that’s now a couple years old that details all the other stuff that he’s been involved with over the years.


It’s Miami, Bitches!
