The Dade County State Attorneys Office declined to charge Hialeah Police Sgt Jesus Menocal Jr in 2016 for raping multiple women. ASA Johnette Hardiman declined to file charges. In doing so, Hardiman called three alleged victims "gang members" and "unreliable". The problem is that she never interviewed those women.
The state said "NO" but the Feds said "GO" and indicted Menocal earlier this month on federal civil rights charges.
Will the Dade State Attorney address these inconsistences and problems with the State's investigation?
As they say in England, "Not bloody likely".
