....Miami-Dade Commissioner Audrey Edmonson.
Over the years Miami-Dade residents have heard a lot of stupid talk come out of the building at 111 NW 1st Street.
But a few things Commissioner Audrey Edmonson said this week could be some of the most idiotic statements ever uttered at County Hall.
On Tuesday the Miami Herald reported, "Last week, the [corrections] department began allowing released inmates who had rides of their own to leave jail directly from the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in West Miami-Dade. The remaining inmates are bused to the civic center in Miami, which houses the main jail and criminal courthouse and offers round-the-clock access to public transportation."
reports "That irked Commissioner Audrey Edmonson, who represents the civic center district and only just found out that’s where inmates get released — even though that’s been county practice since 1961."
“We already have a high crime rate,” she told Corrections Director Tim Ryan. “What you’re doing is increasing it.”
"The buses do not run 24/7 in front of TGK. They stop a little bit before 10 p.m,” Ryan told Edmonson.
Then maybe the jail shouldn’t release anyone after 10 p.m., Edmonson suggested.
Ryan said he would like to halt releases between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. But judges and the public defender have told him that would run afoul of a person’s constitutional protections.
“I have an obligation to get them out in four hours if they’re to be released,” he said.
So, Commissioner Edmonson...welcome to the Random Pixels Losers Corner.
In a town with more that its share of idiot politicians, you truly are one of the most idiotic to come down the pike in a long time.
