Miami-Dade Metrorail security guard attacks Carlos Miller, steals his property

Published On July 30, 2010 | By Dr. Q | Articles

Carlos Miller, author of the Photography is Not a Crime blog, was attacked by a Miami-Dade Metrorail security guard. The guard stole Miller’s video camera (though it was eventually returned). When Miller began filming with his iPhone, the guard began pushing him while attempting to steal the phone. Eventually, the guard struck Miller and he struck back.

Miller managed to get video (captured by his iPhone) of part of the incident up on YouTube.

For the full story, see Miller’s blog. The entire incident was captured by a news crew and will eventually be on HDNet TV World Report.

    GOD-SPEED ON THE MISDEMEANOR LAWSUIT-AND IF YOU WIN-GO STRAIGHT FOR THE METRO-RAIL MONEYBAGS AND SEPARATE AWARD FROM 50 STATE! THEY ARE CRAP SMEARED ALL OVER THE PUBLIC’S FACE-AND UNDER-TAIN AND THREATEN GUARDS ALL THE TIME FOR SADISTIC PLEASURE—HAND THEM ALL FROM THE STEEPLES AND FLOG THEM NAKED PUBLICLY-FOR ALL OUR SAKES!

    BY THE WAY CARLOS-THEY HAVE FALLEN ON HARD TIMES AND MOVED OUT OF THEIR OFFICES AT 1125 N,E, 125 STREET AND ZOOMED RIGHT ON DOWN THE BLOCK TO A SHABBIER DIG AT 915 N.E. 125 STREET-RIGHT NEXT TO A CHINESE RESTAURANT-THEY ARE LOOKING FOR A FORTUNE COOKIE AT THE HONG KONG HOUSE-BUT I THINK YOU HAVE THEIR DUCK ROASTING IN YOUR OVEN—-TURN THE HEAT WAAAAY UP AN BROIL THEM IN SESAME OIL!

    NOW-you see why we “Intelligence Twinkies” have been telling you all that the photography issues are “small potatoes”-compared to the lack of firepower and logistics and training of guards in outsourced agency contracts! In THE NORWAY FIASCO-IT DAMNED-WELL DOESN’T MATTER WHO THE ENEMY IS-OR WHAT HIS TARGET IS-YOU’D BEST BE PREPARED FROM THE “GIT-GO” TO TAKE HIM OUT-with on-site decision and “EXTREME PREJUDICE”! A POLICE GUARD WAS ON THAT ISLAND IN NORWAY-UNARMED-JUST AS GOOD AS A STATION FULL OF OUTSOURCED PEA-SHOOTER FECKLESS GUARDS=MERE CANNON FODDER TARGETS. GET SERIOUS WITH SECURITY-GET REAL-PAY REAL WAGES FOR A REAL SERVICE-OR THIS DISASTER WILL VISIT AMERICA-WITH TRAGIC RESULTS!

    I AM SURE, AS A REVOLUTIONARY, I AM DESPISED BY THE AGENCIES THAT OUTSOURCE-AS WELL AS THE GOVERNMENT AGENCIES-WHOM I HAVE NO USE FOR-BUT-IT DOES NOT MEAN MY MESSAGES AREN’T VERIFIABLE AND CORRECT! THE COUNTRY’S DEFENSES RELY ON THE COMMON FOLKS-AS THE FIRST “BELL-RINGERS OF INTELLIGENCE”. IT WAS THE FARMERS AND FISHERMEN IN CUBA WHO ALERTED FIDEL CASRO TO THE INCURSION OF THE UNITED STATES AT THE “BAY OF PIGS”. IT WAS A WASHINGTON STATE CUSTOMS AGENT THAT STOPPED A 1999 EXPLOSIVES SMUGGLER AT THE CANADIAN BOARDER-ON HIS WAY TO BLOW UP LAX. THE POINT IS-IT IS ORDINARY PEOPLE WHO DO THE SERVICE-AND WE UN-EMPLOY THESE FOLKS, ABUSE THEM, AND GENERALLY LOOK ON THEM AS LESS THEN VERMIN. THIS DISRESPECT WILL BE THE DEATH OF MANY PEOPLE—-AND YOU DON’T GUARD AN ISLAND IN NORWAY WITHOUT FIREPOWER-UTTER INSANITY!

    We too, have been actively pursuing the “why-and-wherefore” OF “THE 50 STATE SECURITY” outsourced phenomenon. In MIAMI-it seems the agency is embarking on termination exercises against folks signed on to their medical coverage-because the agency rates went up-folks were using their coverages! Shame on them! They were told by the insurance provider they would get better rates if they hired younger recruits-so 50 STATE RESPONSE-was to start stuffing the files of these health care users with objectionable reprimands, and they removed them from duty-claiming they were to be removed by the client without explanation!Stuffed files with negative, unverified reprimands,vacated vacation pay with documented lack-of-performance criteria previously not appearing in otherwise good employee’s files, and hostile surveillance on older employees.This economic harassment and belligerence is not only uncalled for-it is illegal. it violates the anti-discrimination laws toward the elderly-and a class-action litigation is in the works on behalf of past employees affected by this wrong treatment.

    IF MIAMI HAS CONSTANT HIRING NEEDS OF “YOUNGER SECURITY GUARDS” TO SATISFY INSURERS OF MEDICAL COVERAGE, AND MIAMI HAS 4 APPLICANTS FOR EVERY JOB, AND BLACKS HAVE AN INCREASINGLY HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT STATISTIC—–JUST WHO ARE THESE OUTSOURCED SECURITY AGENCIES ACTUALLY HIRING??! THEY CANNOT EXIST FINANCIALLY VIABLE IN THIS REALITY-SOMETHING DOESN’T SMELL KOSHER HERE IN MIAMI!
