Trayvon’s Legacy – Miami-Dade County School Board Lawyers Now Evaluating “Legal Risk” Pending Final FOIA Release

We knew last year the diversionary activity around the Miami-Dade School Police Department, which was coordinated, sanctioned and authorized by Miami-Dade School Superintendent, Alberto Carvalho, was illegal.

Consequently we knew a public airing of the illegal activity was a risk to all parties involved.

Miami-Dade School Board

Now, however – the entire School Board might be legally responsible for engaging in unlawful conspiracy which resulted from the internal investigation within the M-DSPD and the School Boards’ willful blindness” to the actual finding(s).

It doesn’t take a law degree to understand that when you intentionally construct a policy, or group of policies, which specifically hide illegal behavior you are on the wrong side of the law – even when it is the top law enforcement officer giving the instructions to do it.

All indications now indicate the information we have uncovered may open the entire Miami-Dade Country Public School System to legal risk.   The District Public Information Officer, Rolando Martin, has admitted to us the current Records Request delay is a consequence of School Board Legal Counsel evaluating our latest FOIA request.

Charles+Hurley+Mass+Held+Commemorating+Sept+lmV8IXDVXZ-lWe are currently awaiting the final report summary from the lead investigators which would have outlined the results of their internal investigation.

An investigation which uncovered several police officers, and School Resource Officers, admitting to breaking the law because they were instructed to do so within their chain of command – specifically, Police Chief Charles Hurley.

Last year we brought you dozens of sworn affidavits from within the Miami-Dade Public school system which specifically outlined a series of coordinated policies stemming from Police Chief Charles Hurley – It has taken almost two years to bring this information to the light of day.

The officers within the department admitted, under oath, to falsifying documents, hiding evidence, and concealing information.  Here are a few sample affidavits we have uploaded to our pdf file sharing account (thousands of pages):

Alberto CarvalhoChief Hurley was following the orders of School Superintendent Alberto Carvalho to hide the criminal activity of black male student offenders.

One of the students who benefitted from the Police concealing criminal activity was Trayvon Martin.

However, Trayvon was only one, there were presumably hundreds more as the affidavits from each of the officers within the Miami-Dade School Police Department attest.

Reports were falsified, evidence was concealed/destroyed, and in some cases hidden within the evidence/property room – intentionally not investigated.    In the case of Trayvon Martin, the stolen jewelry within his backpack was just shipped for storage to a property room without a police report and listed as randomly “found property”.

This is one example of how young black male students were diverted away from the criminal justice system.  Not by correcting the behavior, but by falsely documenting the activity and then using school discipline to replace criminal adjudication.

The M-DSPD never investigated student crime when it was carried out by young black males.  And in the case of Trayvon Martin, they took it several steps further, they concealed criminal conduct, hid stolen merchandise, and actively worked to cover it up.

Why ?

M-DSPD Media Advisory - Copy

Superintendent Carvalho instructed Chief Hurley to do it to improve statistics.   Merely to improve statistics.   But what they ended up doing was actually illegal.

Police Chief Charles Hurley was fired shortly after the investigation – but to avoid the story above being discovered the reason given for Hurley’s discharge was a “sexual harassment” claim.

But wait, it gets worse….  presumably to reward Hurley for going along with the false reason for the firing – the official reason for termination on his file says “failure to re-qualify with a firearm“, perhaps having something to do with keeping a pension/benefit payoff.

You can read how one example, the stolen jewelry, was discovered HERE.

You can also see how this information clearly shows evidence of unlawful behavior on the part of the entire school system.   They have stalled our records requests at every step of the way for well beyond a year.

Now the latest communication from within the M-DSPD/School Board is the School Board legal counsel is evaluating the inherent risk if the public finds out what has been going on.

In the interim, we stand determined – waiting.   Resolute.

We will bring you that final report, and the sunlight will come with it.

….. and the sunlight will come with it !

      That is unknown. Until we can evaluate the “summary” of the IA finding (the internal investigators report) we cannot determine the extent to which the Board would have been notified of the events it discloses.

      Regardless of what that finding outlines, we know Alberto Carvalho held specific knowledge as to the investigative material itself. Meaning he knew at least what was given to us – he was copied on every communication and I have personally spoken to the (media) spokesperson a man named John Schuster to confirm as such.

      If the finding outlines the specificity of what was discovered within the investigative materials itself a series of questions can then be put to the board to determine their depth of knowledge. If any of them knew about what took place, they are guilty of willful blindness, a legal term that stops them from hiding behind the shield of naiveté.

      The board would have needed to approve of the Superintendent Carvalho recommendations for Chief Hurley. But did they know the *full* backstory which led to the termination of Hurley’s employment – or did Carvalho conceal it ?

      The problem for the Board is quite extensive – not the least of which is their conflict of interest into any investigation from this moment forward. There is a potential for their own liability – so they cannot initiate an investigation of themselves. It would take an outside party like Kathleen Rundall the State Attorney in Miami-Dade to launch an investigation into the potential corruption inside the investigation itself.

      If the Board Attorney did NOT inform the board of their legal risk prior to now, that board attorney may himself/herself be guilty of both legal and ethical violations.

      They are in a tenuous position. A very legally tenuous position.

              No-one outlines the School Board.

              That is why we continue to request details to determine what the extent of the School Board knowledge was. One of those first aspects to make a determination is the “summary finding” which will show who, in addition to Carvalho, was given the info. [*Remember, Carvalho hired Hurley, the School Superintendent hires (and presumably fires) the M-DSPD chief]

              The extent of the School Board exposure is unknown. But it is known the School Board counsel has been aware since December 2012 (at least) that’s when our initial inquires began. Both the School Board Counsel and the School Board spokesperson were aware of the investigation in December 2012 and possibly before.

              Did counsel apprise the Board? Unknown. However, we do know he is currently evaluating *exposure*…. Should he have apprised? That seems obvious, of course he should – but did he? Unknown.

              Did the discovery of illegal activity stop with Carvalho, Attorney(s) and Spokespeople? or was lager school board informed ? These are questions yet to be answered.

              If they were not made aware – why not ? If they are evaluating risk – what is their risk ?

The board lawyer determined there’s nothing illegal about the policy and the Board approved it and told Carvalho his success in implementing the policy would affect his performance review, then the Supt calls in Hurley and tells him to cut the arrests – and he doesn’t care how he does it. It’s all a question of plausible deniability, the BOE has it, Hurley and Carvalho not so much.

        Arrested White Privilege Syndrome or AWPS–a condition where one lives one’s own life in a way that best uses his or her talents, goals, strengths and fosters happiness, and whereby develops self-esteem from within instead of trying to purchase it with guilt, demands, or tax dollars, and never gives a thought to how his or her life makes black folks “feel.”

        AWPS is not recognized by the BGI.

By “wolves”, I mean he will be taken care of as compensation for taking the heat on this one. Somehow, I think the American people are tired of these sorts of games as seen in Benghazi, Fast & Furious and a host of other alphabet organizations and this will only be an appetizer for the people, not an emollient.

      During the 60’s and 70’s the “Africanized” clothing that swept the nation was not simply a push for blacks to honor what they perceived their motherland to be.

      It was a level of demarcation; the afro’s and later dreds, the dashikis and later Muslim inspired garb was as much to make a political statement as it was about culture.

      The fake PhD woman does not wrap her head in yards of cloth as fashion or for simple attention, I believe. It is to give the appearance of power and position that is involuntarily paired with the many faceted thrusts of the Black Power Movement.

      When folks not of their culture joke about the headwraps and tunics and scarves we are not light heartedly mocking something as simple as clothing choice. What the questions address is the appearance of a appropriation of a culture that most of those espousing it have little knowledge of, save that the concentration of power in black hands can be a dismissal of American culture seen as Eurocentric-therefore-white-therefore-suspect and also often a dismissal of our rules of law and procedure.

      Ever listen to Shahrazad Ali? Whenever Dr Drew hauls her onto his panel she says outrageous, perplexing thing and dismisses critics because they are white and not students of African culture. Her headpiece is part of her schtick.

      Is it all grown up to diss a huge headscarf? Naw. Is it ok? Sure. Because it is the wrong ideas (and dangerous ideas) beneath it that threaten to usurp the stability of the “European culture” fake doctor bedspread believes.

      Because the media, Conservative or otherwise, doesn’t care about revealing the truth if they risk personal loss by doing so.

      Just the mere perception that they “smeared the memory” of St Skittles will put them in a bad light (and you can bet the BGI will start blowing their horns at the first mention of this) and cost them in form of damaged public image.

      So they will keep silent until the story starts to break in some significant way. The blogs like this one won’t be enough to do that, so it will take a connection with one major publication or news channel.

      Just ONE reporter picking this up and running with it, and a crack will start to form, Then another, and another, until the “piling on” effect takes over. But, in order to get that first reporter to go “All In” the entire rotten thing has to be documented from end to end. As it stands right now, SD is 98% there. He just needs to get that one last piece to complete the puzzle, and tie this thing back to Carvalho.THEN this becomes a national story, since Carvalho is on record as being “with” Obama, through Biden.

    BTW, as for decreasing ANY crime rate by that much one would like to know EXACTLY how it was done. Usual way is to change the way ‘crimes’ are determined and/or reported. You can change a student assault to something like bullying when the former’s a reported incident and the latter isn’t – viola, a decline. Or perhaps you don’t report an assault if the matter’s managed off-line, outside of the official trail or if the assaultee’s pressured into dropping the complaint. There’s also the question of, if you lowered the previous JD rate by some 60% how bad and/or non-existent was the enforcement BEFORE it became an issue? ‘Oh Oh boss, we’d better get out there and DO somethin’, the natives are gettin’ restless!”
    It isn’t unusual for the targeted to enact ‘new and more effective measures to lower crime rates’ after they’ve been caught sleeping on the job, and no one asks why these trends were not seen by the active actors before they were made manifest by outside parties and these measures enacted more soonerer. My dog knows when she has fleas, that’s her job, she doesn’t wait for me to do an outside top-down inspection. Ain’t that what the school police are paid for or is ‘proactivity’ something they don’t be paid to do? One would presume that the people paid to find bad things going on would actually FIND bad things going on.

I know that his behavior, and his language (you wouldn’t believe) have taken a distinctly BET turn and the school’s blaming us. Now I know that no one in either household uses Chris Rock phrasing and he doesn’t watch HBO so the source of his bi-lingualism has a limited possibility. I’ve had a number of parents from different races complaining about the safety of their children in that school and it’s been an on-going problem for some time – the school knows about the problems, the Feds know about the problems yet it appears that most of the available resources are being spent on ways to cover over the problems.
