Observations and musings on Jacksonville Politics

Cuba, FOP Grandstanding Again?

This morning’s TU article on the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office internal investigations was certainly interesting.  Nelson Cuba’s “attitude” once again comes out with the statement “if they don’t like it, we’ll stop giving them a statement, and they can get over it.”   Cuba calls the Sheriff’s statements “grandstanding”, but it appears that the only person grandstanding on a consistent basis lately is Nelson Cuba himself.

Even though I have not supported citizen review boards in the past, if the FOP is successful in their quest to close proceedings, I will be more than happy to join in the chorus to call for a citizens review board.  It is bad enough that the Legislature is currently considering a bill that would allow for police officers to corroborate their stories, i.e., get their stories straight, prior to investigation of incidents where two or more officers are involved.
