UPDATED Sept. 5, 2013 at 2:40pm: The Miami Herald reports that Archer "has been relieved of duty with pay while he is investigated by his own department and the FBI, the police department said Thursday in a press release." Click here for full story.
Yesterday, Miami Beach Mayor Matti Bower told Local 10 reporter Roger Lohse that Miami Beach Police detective Philippe Archer was under investigation by the FBI's Public Corruption Task Force.
Archer, of course, is the Miami Beach cop with major aggression control issues who can't seem to make an arrest without first beating the arrestee to a bloody pulp.
Lohse interviewed attorney Joseph Goodman who represented Guy Moulin, a French tourist who, in 2012, "sued the cities of Miami Beach and Hialeah and four police officers [including Archer], alleging false arrest, battery and civil rights violations."
Lohse reports that Miami Beach "paid Moulin $60,000 in a settlement in June."
But Archer isn't off the hook just yet. He's still working the streets despite his record of brutality.
So, as a public service, Random Pixels has worked up a wanted poster that hopefully, will prompt any citizens with additional information on Archer's lawbreaking to contact the FBI with that information.
The FBI needs help in doing what Miami Beach Police Chief Ray Martinez can't seem to do...and that is take Phil Archer off the streets of Miami Beach for good.
