Remarkably, Sgt. Munoz wasn't injured. You know how, mostly in Hialeah, defendants will repeatedly smack their head in to the jail cell bars while officers plead with them not to injury themselves? Or how a defendant in custody will throw himself down a flight of stairs, repeatedly?
Well thankfully, those "accidents" that so often occur in Hialeah (Motto: "City of accidents, Ay Caramba!") did not happen with Sgt. Munoz.
What did occur today, according to The Herald, is that Sgt. Munoz claims he was set up.....
by his girlfriend's pimp!!
This is an actual quote-we swear we are not making this up:
"I met a girl- she happens to have a pimp, and we fell in love" Munoz said. "And he doesn't let her be free. This came about because he set the whole thing up."
Isn't that the way things always happen? You meet this great girl, and she seems fantastic and you have a few dates, and then BAM! She happens to have a pimp, or a cat, or is a Jehovah's Witness, and the whole thing falls apart.
And you have to sympathize with the poor sergeant. What's a lowly sergeant against a purple feather wearing, cadillac driving, pimp? What can he do? The who thing is just so sad. Hopefully the truth comes out and justice is done.
Jorge Ayala. Griselda Blanco- the godmother of cocaine. Paco Sepulveda. Centac 26. Mickey Munday. Pablo Escobar. The shootout at the Dadeland Mall. Where to begin? It was, it seems, an entire lifetime ago for us. The names, the snitches, the deals, the cops, the cash. It was a world that no longer exists.
We'd have to explain most of Miami of the1980's to you to explain who Jorge Ayala is and how he fits in with out city's history. But for our purposes, he is a convicted hit man. And now, according to David Ovalle, he wants out after 25 years.
For the whole story, just rent the movie. Or send a tweet to @billycorben, just not while he's a juror.
Boy, that was an unexpected blast from the past.
See you in court.
