President of the Miami police union: Tamir Rice was a ‘thug’ who got what was coming to him

President of the Miami police union posted an alarming tweet in response to the grand jury’s decision not to charge Chicago police officers in the death of Tamir Rice

President of the Miami police union posted an alarming tweet in response to the grand jury’s decision not to charge Cleveland police officers in the death of Tamir Rice, if you “act like a thug and you’ll be treated like one.”

According The Miami New Times, Lt. Javier Ortiz was debating with movie director Billy Corben on Twitter over the parameters of the Rice case when the officer made a comment suggesting a 12-year-old kid who plays with a toy gun deserves to be killed.

Ortiz went on to describe Tamir with the racially charged term of “thug,” which some believe has become internet code for the N-word.

When he was asked to clarify his comments, Ortiz said, “Mr. Rice wasn’t your neighborhood kid running around with a water gun. He was brandishing and pointing a pellet gun in which the orange tip was removed. As tragic as the situation is, I support those in law enforcement that had to make a split-second decision in protecting themselves and the community.” Twitter users were quick to jump on Ortiz’s comments.

The police union president even went so far as to call #BlackLivesMatter movement a “joke” and that it “incites violence”.

Ortiz has a history of using social media for not only voicing opinions following instances of police violence, but as a means to attack others.

When a woman filmed a Miami cop kicking a handcuffed suspect last year, Ortiz responded by blasting the witness and spreading photos from her Facebook page, according The New Times. He also perpetuated rumors that a female assistant chief of police was Muslim and that she ignored the National Anthem.

    Javier Ortiz needs to have a shotgun placed against his head & then the trigger pulled.

    Ortiz is a jackass and a bigot, but you’re an asshole who’s inciting violence. Be better than that.

    Just a thought here but if memory serves me right is that not an Open Carry state.. so if they thought he was older than he was.. and it was legal to open carry.. why would they drive right up to him and in 2 seconds kill him.. they have a megaphone on their car..they could have pulled fairly close and called out to him ..

    It is sad when a person in authority can be so insensitive to the death of a child who was innocently playing without knowing the ramifications of his behavior. Although the cop was found not guilty I am quie sure he himself has lost some sleep over the death of that little boy. If Ortiz is the Union president of Miami’s police dept. they are in the hads of a bigoted moron who doesn’t deserve to be union president. Every case that he has been in charge of involving a black person should be retried and he himself investigated. Being a public servant to all the people of Dade County means he should not show prejudice but instead he is displaying the behavior of a bigot and a racist to be a minority himself. His comments were not those of a police officer but instead those of a bigoted racist. I am quite sure he has children who they themselves are minorities and could someday be in peculiar predicament for simply being a minority. Unless he forgot that out of uniform he is just another PR or Mexican, with the name Ortiz it’s hard to tell which.

    Not against murderous pigs & murderous pig cheerleaders. They need to be shuffled loose from the mortal coil like the infection they are.

    “A Thug,who got what was coming to him”,,,a new method of exterminating Black criminals-kill them,when they’re 12 years old-unique,,sick,hateful and bigoted,,but very unique! right about now,we’ll see how long this Miami Police Chief will keep his job,or how quickly a lawsuit will be used against him,since he appears to be above the law of accountability!

    Why are we talking about what the innocent child was doing in a playground next to his home and not the police officer who jumped out of a car and mortally wounded the 12-year-old within 1-2 seconds of joining Tamir on the playground?

    Why aren’t we talking about a police officer who tackled the Tamir’s sister and prevented her from giving a few tender moments of love as her little brother lost consciousness, bleeding out in the dirt alone?

    Why are we not talking about the fact that the murdering police officer was deemed “emotionally unstable” and unfit for duty as a police officer by the Ohio Independence Police who trained him?

    Why on the day of the murder did police chief say “The officer got out of the car and told the boy to put his hands up. The boy reached into his waistband, pulled out the gun and [Loehmann] fired two shot” and the when the video was released “Loehmann shouted from the car three times at Tamir to show his hands as he approached the car”?

    This is why I don’t get that stupid black folks think we have allies with Hispanic people when we DON’T! and that asshole said nothing of the elderly white woman that pointed a gun at cops daring them to shoot her and she is STILL ALIVE so she must be a ‘thug’ too right, right?!!

    Ohio is a open carry state. Meaning you have a right to carry a gn. The police said in testimony. They thought he was 18. If you thought he was 18. In a open carry state he would have the right to carry a gun.

    Are you kidding? He wasn’t found “not guilty”. The prosecutor recommended that the grand jury not charge the murderer. Simple as that.

    To carry, yes, as in holstered. Pointing it at others is brandishing and is illegal. Look at the video and stills…he was not open carrying.

    First, check your facts before jumping to erroneous conclusion. Ohio IS an open carry state. So, what’s your next mistake in judgement?

    It’s unjustified comments like his, launched with arrogance and without thought, that trigger unjustified reactions by others, sooner or later, putting innocent law enforcement officials at risk. This is their pattern…escalate, escalate, escalate. There’s a price to be paid, by innocent victims AND by innocent cops, chosen randomly for revenge. He’s too stupid to see it. After all, it’s a fact that cops aren’t chosen for their high IQ’s, since it’s felt that those with higher IQ’s might get bored with their jobs. Therefore, those within an average IQ range are more likely to be selected. And, this is exactly why we end up with results like Cleveland..mistakes, by dumb cops.
