The Miami Police Department posts a photo of the chief using the same gesture that the police officer was stopped


The Miami Police Department counterattacked the city’s police chief on Friday and posted a photo posing with the same gesture that Art Acevedo suspended an officer for use last week.

Caption above the photo posted on the Miami Police Department’s Twitter page: “Don’t do what I say.”

Acevedo, who was attending the meeting on Friday and couldn’t comment, introduced the question to Troy Finner, the Houston police chief who was with him when the photo was taken. And the chief claimed that the gesture was misinterpreted, as police officer Asebed was suspended.

According to Finner, it was from Houston and was actually intended as a sign of support for George Floyd. The death of a Minnesota police officer triggered a protest by Black Lives Matter.

According to Finner, the signal was formed by a ring of thumb and index finger and was received a little over three weeks after Floyd’s death, when Asebed was the chief of Houston, while raising the other three fingers with both hands. It is said that

“I was there that day,” said Finale. “It was a celebration of George Floyd.”

The photo, taken in June 2020, was on the track of Jack Yates High School in Houston, mainly in Houston’s historic Black Third Ward. Floyd went to school there.

According to Finner, hand gestures are a sign of pride on behalf of District 3, and are called “Chalkin’Up the Threes” by locals. This is similar to a graduate of the University of Miami or a student who forms the “U” symbol with his thumb and index finger.

“These individuals are very proud,” said Finale. “They asked the chief to come to throw the Third Ward sign, and he did.”

Floyd’s life, which ended in an intolerable nine minutes recorded on a cell phone video under the knees of Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin, is one of the greatest civil rights movements in the history of the country. It led to the police.

In a photo a year ago that Asevedo reposted on his Twitter page, the chief blows up the person who posted it first and feels like “more evidence of ignorance and racism in our country.” Harmed. The chief said he helped women at Jack Yates High School, who are proud of their alma mater.

Acevedo last weekend Miami police officer suspended Daniel Ubeda is examining photos taken by the internal affairs with the other six members of his team. In it, Ubeda posed with exactly the same hand gestures used by the chief.

Reyes claimed that the photo posted on Ubeda’s commander’s Twitter account and deleted within 48 hours was a joke within the team, calling itself “B-Shift Six.”But according to the Anti-Defamation League, the signs centuries ago are “OK” was adopted A few years ago, by a racist group as a sign of white supremacism.

Two weeks ago, Reyes, who published a letter condemning his hard-line view of the need for vaccination of officers, called Ubeda’s suspension another “kneeling” reaction by Asevedo.

Ubeda is the same officer who received Written rebuke For wearing a mask to help Donald Trump, who worked in uniform at a polling place at a government center last October. Internal investigation revealed that he violated departmental procedures and etiquette policies.
