So we have a modest proposal: Fire the Irishman and hire Ken Jenne. The just retired Broward Sheriff has baggage, but he also boasts experience. The BSO is much bigger than the Miami PD -- and Kenny boy has done a fine job cleaning up the place. Hell, he's even a crack consultant. (We should probably make sure he promises to tell the IRS if he continues this biz.) Unlike John Timoney, Jenne never alienated our largest minority group by drunkenly proclaiming “Fuck the Cubans.” Plus, Kenny won't need the car allowance or those bonus amenities that got Timoney in trouble; he'll be in federal detention.
Indeed, Jenne is a crack political player and former prosecutor who could keep Miami commissioners off balance. And that's really what the Miami police chief must do, right? So we ask you, Miami City Manager Pete Hernandez: Why not give the short, bald guy a shot? -- Chuck Strouse
