Miami Beach police officer involved in two shooting deaths in four days



Every time an officer-involved shooting makes the news, we read about how they are placed on paid administrative leave pending a thorough investigation.

Yet we never hear about when that officer actually comes of administrative leave.

Unless, of course, that same officer ends up in another shooting death.

That was the case this week on Miami Beach when Officer Adam Tavss shot an unarmed man in an incident that was caught on a surveillance video, then four days later, was involved in a second shooting that left a carjacking suspect dead.

In the first incident, police claimed that the suspect was reaching for what appeared to be a gun, causing them to fear for their lives and open fire. The object, they said, turned out to be a beer bottle.

However, the surveillance video shows the man and his brother walking down the street with their arms by their sides.

And it never shows the man reaching for anything as he is shot in front of the camera.

Check out the video and the story I wrote today about it on NBCMiami.com.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
