*(Via Miami Herald) – Miami Gadens Police Chief Stephen Johnson, hired last May to rein in a department reeling from accusations of racial profiling, was fired Friday night after being arrested on a charge of soliciting a prostitute in Dania Beach.

Michael Wright, a detective and police department spokesman, said Johnson was arrested at a Dania Beach motel during a sting operation conducted by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office. He said Johnson was immediately fired by City Manager Cameron Benson and that Assistant Police Chief Antonio Brooklen would take the helm in the interim.

The city released a statement late Friday saying, “We recently learned Chief Stephen Johnson has been arrested for solicitation of a prostitute. As a result, Mr. Johnson’s employment with the city of Miami Gardens has been terminated, effective immediately.”

    • He had to know them white people would try to set him up to take a fall.

      But at least he wasn’t going around harassing Quickstop customers, like the guy who was stopped and frisked 419 times in a five year period.

      Well, black Miami Garden residents, it’s back to the good ol’ days, with crackas roaming free once again.
