A Hispanic police captain in Miami has been suspended for claiming he was a “black male” during a city commission meeting, department officials said.
Javier Ortiz was “relieved of duty with pay” on Wednesday pending an investigation, a police department spokesman confirmed to The Post.
Ortiz, who previously oversaw the department’s SWAT operations, is expected to be off the force indefinitely, Deputy Police Chief Ronald Papier told the Miami Herald.
Papier refused to indicate why Ortiz is being investigated, but the development follows Ortiz’s comments on Friday at a city commission meeting during which he claimed he was black instead of Hispanic while addressing allegations of discrimination within the police department.https://nypost.com/2020/01/23/controversial-miami-police-captain-suspended-after-claiming-hes-black/

A Detroit man is suing a Michigan bank for refusing to cash a settlement check awarded to him in a racial discrimination lawsuit, according to a report.
Sauntore Thomas, 44, claims TCF Bank employees refused to cash or deposit his settlement check on Tuesday at a branch in Livonia, leading cops to respond and a fraud investigation to be launched, the Detroit Free Press reports.
“I didn’t deserve treatment like that when I knew that the check was not fraudulent,” Thomas told the newspaper. “I’m a United States veteran. I have an honorable discharge from the Air Force. They discriminated against me because I’m black. None of this would have happened if I were white.”
Thomas, who had an account at the bank for nearly two years, sued TCF Bank on Wednesday, alleging racial discrimination by the bank for calling police, prompting four cops to respond to the branch, the newspaper reports.

Two years ago almost to the day, Raven Saunders found herself behind the wheel of her car with no idea where she was headed.
The shot-putting star from Charleston’s Burke High School, just 21 years old at the time, had already won four NCAA championships at Southern Illinois and Mississippi, and finished fifth at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
Back home in Charleston, Mayor John Tecklenburg declared Aug. 17, 2016, as “Raven Saunders Day,” and her hometown fans turned out to greet her in a parade that started at Burke and proceeded down King Street. The future looked bright for the athlete whose vibrant smile belied the nickname “Hulk.”

...showing pictures of the 'savvy sexual predator' on red carpets and posing with former President Bill Clinton after the disgraced mogul limped into court without his walker
The disgraced mogul had earlier limped into court without his walker ahead of opening statements in his landmark rape and sexual assault trial, in a case that has become a watershed moment for the #MeToo movement.
Both legal teams will make their arguments to a jury of seven men and five women, with the once-powerful Hollywood producer facing life in prison if convicted.
Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Meghan Hast told the court: 'During this trial, you’re going to learn that the defendant was a savvy, powerful Hollywood producer but the evidence both from the witness stand and evidence will show that that man was a sexual predator and a rapist.'

At first glance at this pic, I thought those dudes were drum majors in front of a marching band.
