...or will he continue to blame the police department?
Miami City Commissioner Richard Dunn, who's been a vocal critic of the Miami Police Department's efforts to put a stop to crime in Liberty City and Overtown, has been pretty scarce lately.
A few months ago Dunn was making statements like this: “It looks like the chief [of police] has succeeded in creating a culture in the police department of shoot first and ask questions later. Unfortunately, it only seems to happen in District 5.”
Dunn believes he has a better way to deal with the violence that pervades his district: Prayer.
However, it appears that God is not listening.
from the Miami Herald:
Police: Two men shot dead in Liberty CityBut, I'm sure after Wednesday night's killings, Commissioner Dunn will be going before a bank of TV cameras and microphones today to apologize to Chief Exposito and denounce the real perpetrators of violence in his district.

Two men were shot dead Wednesday night in Liberty City, according to Miami-Dade police.
The attack took place about 7:30 p.m. in an apartment complex near Northwest 65th Street and 21st Avenue. Two men were approached by the shooter, who carried a gun that was described to officers as an assault weapon, police spokesman Detective Roy Rutland said.
The shooter opened fire, striking both men, he said. One died at the scene, in the complex’s playground, Rutland said. The second died at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
