Miami manager suspends Police Chief Exposito

By Charles Rabin and Patricia Mazzei

In a first step to his possible firing, Miami Police Chief Miguel Exposito was suspended from his job Tuesday morning following a closed-door meeting with City Manager Johnny Martinez.

Exposito left the meeting with his attorney, Ruben Chavez, but declined to comment.

The suspension could lead to Exposito being fired, but that will be up to the Miami City Commission, which will review the city manager’s recommendations.

The move came only days after Exposito sent a letter demanding whistleblower protection to Martinez.

In the letter, Exposito contends he has been unfairly targeted by the mayor’s office since Dec. 29, 2010, when Exposito wrote to federal law enforcement claiming Mayor Tomás Regalado interfered with an October police raid targeting controversial video-gaming machines.
