More Evidence Marc Sarnoff Is An Insensitive Buffoon

Marc Sarnoff, the Great Cornholio
Miami City Commissioner Marc Sarnoff sure knows how to alienate people. We've made our case before why this guy should get recalled. The man is unfit for public office. He is absolutely clueless when it comes to dealing with the poor and the disenfranchised.

On February 18, Sarnoff provided more reason to see him run out of Miami. He appeared on Helen Ferre's TV show Issues on WPBT2 to defend the police-related shootings that have claimed the lives of seven African American males, as well as voice his support for Miami Police Chief Miguel Exposito.

During his chat session with Ferre, Sarnoff implies that cops are justified in shooting unarmed suspects who have a past criminal record involving gun charges.

"What is happening is there is an assumption made by many police officers when these folks are being pulled over in certain places at certain times that they are armed," Sarnoff rationalized. "It takes a lot of courage at four o'clock in the morning to pull over a car and you don't know who is in it, or maybe you do know who is in it, and that person has a rap sheet with 37 arrests in it and you see there are guns on 30 of those arrests you almost create the expectation."



Sarnoff also noted he is a firm believer in the second amendment to bear arms, informing the host that he owns more than ten guns. Seriously. The city commissioner representing Miami's wealthiest district with the least amount of violent crime is packing heat to arm a small commando unit. Considering he believes paranoid cops have a license to shoot suspects without provocation, we hope those guns are under lock and key and that he lost the key.

Wait a minute.... Wasn't Commissioner Sarnoff allegedly a Hillsborough County police officer who as a rookie was involved in, not one, not two, but three separate incidents where he actually discharged his weapon ?

One would certainly expect that the Commissioner would have, at the very least, mentioned his heroics in this interview.

The truth is that it's all another great big fat lie by none other than THE KING OF ALL LIARS.

Isn't that right Marc?

I'm pretty sure this guy is doing exactly what he was voted in to do. The writers at the Village New Times are out of the mainstream. Guess what, most people have no problem with what this guy said and what those cops did. The cops will never be charged. If there are lawsuits, they will never be found liable. Why? Because the juries are mainstream.

5 of those dead men pulled a gun on the officers. The officers did the right thing in shooting those scum bags!

I hate to tell you all, but the last man killed had a record of incredibly petty crimes such as trespassing, loitering and marijuana possession. Yes, some of the those killed earlier were violent criminals. The last one killed was not. Get your facts straight before you jump to the defense of one trigger happy cop.

i was not aware of the latest shoot out of the last guy's record.. . my statement was based off the other cases thxs for the info. Then again that why we have civilian over site or in some places need civilian over site. But i will stand by that sometimes a shotting is gonna happen especially when an officer or some ones life is in threat. That wont change its on of the reason that gun controls need to be more enforced...

Dude people dont relise a stress for a cop for a simple traffic stop now imagine a criminal.. Most of the the time those guys do have a guns on them and there going for it. So ya let just teh guy get the gun and shoot the cop then the cops shoots thatz a freaking great idea-.-.. Dont get me wrong i do think cops abuse their power and sarnoff is an asshole that should be out of office. But when a fucking cops shoots someone its for safety concerns of his peers and citizens.

I am no fan of Marc Sarnoff.

Let us be real. Several of the criminals who were shot had been arrested over 30 times. Many had committed hundreds of crimes. Aren't the citizens of Miami better off with them off the streets?

We live in a democracy last time I checked. In a democracy we set up an entire branch of government to deal with these people called the judicial branch. These are law ENFORCEMENT officers, not jurors or executioners. If you're satisfied with having roving bands of judge, jury, and executioners ready to kill at will then I suggest you go find another country to live in, one where rights are not defined and there's little value placed on human life. We follow the constitution here.

I'm quite the liberal, but F those with long rap sheets full of gun crimes. They deserve what they end up getting.

And is it the police dept's job to execute them? Last time I checked we had this entire branch of government called the judicial to try and sentence these men. We only ask police to enforce the laws and detain suspects, not try, sentence, and execute these men.
