THE CHAIRMAN HAS ANGER PROBLEMS

JUST BEFORE THE LUNCH BREAK, COMMISSION CHAIRMAN KEON HARDEMON HAD A MELTDOWN RESULTING IN HIS TOSSING THE GAVEL ON THE DIAS AND WALKING OUT OF THE CHAMBERS. 


THE BACK STORY BEHIN THIS EPISODE IS ACTUALLY LONG AND A LITTLE COMPLICATED, AND INVOLVES GENTRIFICATION EFFORTS IN WEST GROVE BY AT LEAST ONE WEALTHY PROPERTY OWNER, AND THE ANGER EXPRESSED BY A LONG TIME RESIDENT OF THE CITY BY WHAT HE PERCEIVED TO BE SPECIAL TREATMENT BEING GIVEN TO THIS PROPERTY OWNER - MISTAKENLY ON THE PART OF THE OLDER RESIDENT BECAUSE THE RICH GUY HAD MADE A FORMAL REQUEST FOR THE RIGHT TO MAKE A PERSONAL APPEARANCE BEFORE THE COMMISSION - SOMETHING ANY CITIZENS IN MIAMI CAN DO.


THEN THE COMMISSIONER’S MELTDOWN OCCURRED AS SOON AS THIS OLDER RESIDENT STARTED TO SAY THE WORD HAITIAN - AND AGAIN, I BELIEVE THAT THE COMMISSIONER WAS TOO QUICK TO TAKE OFFENSE AS SOON AS HE HEARD THE WORD HAITIAN, WITHOUT ALLOWING THE RESIDENT TO COMPLETE HIS SENTENCE - BUT THE ISSUES GO FAR DEEPER THAN MERE WORDS.


KEON HARDEMON HAS CONTROL AND ANGER MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS, AND IT’S SURPRISING HOW QUICKLY HE SEEMS TO LOOSE CONTROL IF HE’S CHALLENGED IN ANY WAY - EVEN BY AN OLD MAN USING A WALKER.


THE REAL PROBLEM TODAY STARTED WITH A CARRY-OVER OF YESTERDAY’S BATTLE OVER THE RICKENBACKER MARINA RFP, AND I’M SURE THAT DAVID SMILEY WILL DO A FAR MORE ACCURATE STORY INCLUDING WHAT WAS SAID FOR THE HERALD, BECAUSE I’M WRITTEN OUT FOR THE DAY.


IN ANY EVENT, I CANNOT SEE HARDEMON BEING ALLOWED TO CONTINUE AS THE CHAIRMAN OF THE COMMISSION GIVEN THESE OUTBURSTS, AS WELL AS HIS BEHAVIOR TO HIS FELLOW COMMISSIONERS, SUCH AS YESTERDAY’S INCIDENT BETWEEN HIM AND RUSSELL INCLUDED IN THE STORY BELOW.


HOPEFULLY BY THE WEEKEND I WILL HAVE THE COMPLETE COMMISSION VIDEO AND WILL POST THE ENTIRE INCIDENT.
