Miami Gardens told by their Chief to target black males between ages of 15-30

Police arrested a man 56 times at work for trespassing.

Earl Sampson picked up by Miami Gardens Police 256 times– the equivalent of an once a week for the last 4 years and arrested 56 times  for trespassing at his place of employment where he still works.  None of the arrests resulted in  convictions and all were dismissed or  thrown out.  He has  no criminal record except minor marijuana possession.

As crime is low,  Are  police departments fabricating crimes and criminals for stats and money by  targeting black males between the ages of 15 to 30 years old.


Miami Gardens Sued Over Racial Profiling, Police Abuse!!


Miami Gardens Police Chief Mathew Boyd


What will be done about the injustices of police officers?  Thus far no one has sought to criminalize police officer’s brutality, violence, molestation and MURDERS.  They should be tried by the community and if convicted placed in same facility as those they arrested.   Now that would be justice as they reach for the soap.

I am a first generation Jamaican immigrant whose experiences and accomplishments were made possible by the courage, sacrifices and the heroic acts of many whose bodies have rotted away in unmarked graves. Those are my heroes. Their sacrifices and death paved the way for my children and I. Failure to Listen is a token of my eternal gratitude. Failure to Listen is a tribute those generations of unmarked graves occupied by people of all races whose ultimate sacrifice of life opened the door for me and others, THANK YOU. Failure to Listen https://failuretolisten.wordpress.com/ uses cultural lenses to appreciate and understand the relationships between current events and our values, beliefs and attitudes. Culture is everything without it we are nothing. Failure to Listen will take you on a journey to recognize the beauty of our differences as the seeds to creativity, innovation and resolving disparities. By sharing my personal and professional experiences, I hope to do justice to the perspectives of those who are rarely heard or listened to. This site is not to incite anger but rather to provoke thought. It is my hope that Failure to Listen will work to foster intergroup dialogues and motivate readers to step outside the box and get to know ALL PEOPLE. In the spirit of Martin Luther King, let's join hands and remember his famous speech about a dream... A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead

  1. It hard to imagine this. But when the statistics are presented, you will know without any doubt this fact in truth. One remedy is too put cameras in all police cars. All arrests are then put in front of the camera so there will be little doubt left on a persons word. For an example, if an officer claims a knife, it better be on the hood of the car for the camera to pick up, I just couldn’t imagine be setup by the people that are there to protect us, singled out to help pay for a prison and for a trumped up charge.

    Yes, this is really happening in the USA. Why is the real reason the whites walk away and the blacks are pick on, again, again and again.
