Miami Cop Beat and Arrested Man For Yelling “Do your fucking job”, Lawsuit Says

A Miami police officer is facing a lawsuit for allegedly beating a man that was yelling at the officer. The incident took place in 2015, but the lawsuit was filed on July 17, 2018.

42-year-old Jose Farquaharson was in the town of Overtown back in 2015 enjoying a night out. A speeding vehicle blew by Farquaharson who was on foot. Farquaharson then took it upon himself to shout at two Miami Police Department cops that were standing across the street. Farquaharson yelled, “Do your fucking job and stop the cars from speeding!”

It was then that Officer Luis Arcia ran across the street and yelled back at Farquaharson saying, “Kiss my ass.” 

Arcia then grabbed Farquaharson by the wrist and threw him to the ground, cuffing his hands. The lawsuit states that, “Arcia punched him several times in the face, beating him so badly he required hospitalization.”  

Farquaharson was arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Citing insufficient evidence, the magistrate dropped the charges on the following day. The lawsuit lists Officer Arcia and the City of Miami as defendants. The grounds for the lawsuit are false arrest and excessive force Miami New Times News reports.

Attorney Roderick Vereen is representing Farquaharson. Vereen believes that the officer thought he got a free pass from the incident. Vereen released this statement:

“For a few years, he thought he was gonna get away with it. If he’s gonna get all pissed off because somebody yells profanities at him and exercise unlawful force, then [he’s] in the wrong community and in the wrong job. Some people think that uniform gives them permission to do whatever they want. This was uncalled for.”

Upon the charges being dropped, Farquaharson filed a complaint with the police department’s internal affairs office. But in 2016 internal affairs found no wrong doing of Arcia and closed the investigation citing that the allegations were “unsupported.”

The Civilian Investigative Panel, an independent police-oversight board, also reviewed the case but couldn’t verify the validity of the complaint because the witnesses failed to cooperate.

Arcia has four citizen complaints on his record in-addition to seven use-of-force incidents. In one instance Arcia was even relieved of duty.

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.
