Four Nebraska cops were fired over [__an incident__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/nebraska-police-chase-down-man-video-recording-their-abuse-while-second-man-video-records-it-all) in which they tried their best to conceal, including beating a man and chasing his brother into a home to steal his camera all while unknowingly being recorded by another citizen from an upstairs window. And another three officers were placed on leave and an additional officer was reassigned, according to the [__Associated Press__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/4-Omaha-officers-fired-for-excessive-force-arrests-4412426.php). However, Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer refused to release any of the officers’ names, meaning they will likely get hired at another police department in the near future. After all, as hard as it is to fire a cop, it is even harder to prevent him from getting rehired as a cop where he will likely continue his unlawful ways. Take the case of a South Florida cop who violated police protocol when he pursued a suspect down the wrong way of a Miami expressway this week, which resulted in the suspect striking another vehicle and killing its four occupants inside. Opa-Locka police cpl. Sergio Perez had tried to pull the suspect over for making an illegal right turn. Departmental police only allows pursuits in serious felonies like murders, rapes or robberies. Perez had been kicked out of the police academy for reckless driving but somehow managed to get hired by one of the most corrupt police departments in Miami-Dade County, the Opa-Locka Police Department as Miami blogger [__Random Pixels explains.__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/opa-locka-pd-hiring-standards-we-aint.html#.UWA1qavwLmM) The [__Miami Herald__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/victims-of-i-95-crash-were-visitors.html) did a good job on digging up his short, but extremely questionable police experience: > But just two months into his training, he crashed his car into another vehicle on I-95 while drag-racing at speeds in excess of 110 miles per hour, according to the FHP report. A city of Miami police detective witnessed the race, the report said. Perez, who was off duty, was taken into custody on reckless driving charges. It’s not clear from the report whether he was driving a patrol car or his personal vehicle. > But he was fired the following day and kicked out of the police academy. > He applied to Opa-locka a month later, noting on his application that the reason for leaving Miami Shores was because he “received a criminal traffic citation.’’ > Opa-locka hired him a year later, in March 2008. There is no indication in his personnel file that the city conducted a background check or investigated why he left Miami Shores. > A month later, he was given a “post-accident substance control test,’’ which he passed. It’s not clear why the test was administered, since there is no accident report in his file. > In October 2009, a woman filed a lawsuit against the city, alleging that Perez punched her in the head with such force that surgeons had to reconstruct her face by inserting a metal plate. Included in the lawsuit is a copy of the surgeon’s report from Jackson Memorial Hospital, detailing the severity of her injuries. Now four innocent people are dead  and while Perez was not the one who initially drove down the wrong way on the expressway, he holds at least some responsibility for the incident. But we will probably hear from him again as a police officer and not in a good way.

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.
