Cop suspended for other half’s social media posts about ‘Team’ member gets restored
A Florida officer made national headlines today after getting suspended for remarks that his spouse made on social networks.
And after America got pissed– he’s now been renewed.
Town Supervisor J.C. Jimenez said that Bay Harbor Islands Police Department Cpl. Pablo Lima was brought back to full responsibility Thursday after an investigation into the occurrence.
Lima had been suspended for “taste” his partner’s Facebook post where she described anti-American Congressman Rashida Tlaib as being a “Hamas-loving anti-Semite,” according to the Miami Herald.
Cpl. Pablo Lima, a former vice-president of the police union in Miami-Dade, was placed on administrative leave pending an internal affairs investigation, according to town supervisor J.C. Jimenez.
Florida police officer suspended for his partner’s social networks posts about a member of’The Team’. “The material of the social media posts that were brought to our attention are not consistent with our
Town’s worths and policies,”Jimenez stated in a statement. Lima had applied to be the town’s next cops chief on a Tuesday, and after that the following Thursday after being asked about the Facebook posts by the Miami-Herald, the department opened an examination and put him on leave.
“I further discover that Corporal Lima was revealing his First Amendment rights showing support for his spouse,” Lt. Curtis Johnson stated in his choice.
The investigation was crazy to start with.
Somebody posts a status on social media, who happens to be your other half. You “like” the post to support your better half’s right to her opinion.
ONE YEAR later a paper asks about it under questionable situations. And you get suspended for doing it? Ok.
Lima’s better half, Anabelle Lima-Taub serves as the city commissioner in Hallandale Beach, Florida, and is apparently considered a “questionable” figure in the city. Incidentally, Lima-Taub was born in Haifa, which is the 3rd biggest city in Israel.
Offered the rhetoric that Tlaib has originated considering that she entered public life continually berating Israel, one can barely blame Lima-Taub for lighting her up on social networks.
The Facebook post in concern emanates from a post last year. Last January, a vote was kept in Hallandale Beach to condemn her for Facebook posts targeting Tlaib, consisting of calling her a Hamas-loving anti-Semite and said that she might be a “martyr and blow up Capitol Hill.”
The vote passed 3-2, but apparently held no weight. Throughout the meeting, advocates revealed up waving Israeli flags and holding check in support of her statements. Lima-Taub declined to excuse the posts, and in fact re-emphasized them in other posts.
“I am upset by anybody who is NOT OFFENDED by Rashida Tlaib’s hateful rhetoric and professional BDS and other radical unsafe views calling for the obliteration of Israel, actually off the face of the map,” she stated in one post.
“I remain unapologetic for my views that she is a danger to the peace process and require an apology of her for relabeling Israel as Palestine on a map hanging on her wall in her congressional office.”
Lima-Taub explained that her primary problem with Tlaib is her assistance of the BDS or Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions motion versus Israel, which she feels is identical to supporting the terrorist organizations Hamas and Hezbollah.
Tlaib has a history of making anti-Israel comments. At one time when she was asked if she supported a one-state solution, she said:
“One state. It needs to be one state. Separate however equivalent does not work. This entire idea of a two-state service, it doesn’t work.”
Palestinian activists utilize the term “one-state option” to refer to the replacement of Israel.
Tlaib told Britain’s Channel 4 that she would cut U.S. military aid to Israel.
“Definitely, if it has something to do with inequality and not access to individuals having justice,” she said. “For me, United States aid must be utilize. I will be utilizing my position in Congress so that no nation, not one, ought to be able to get aid from the US when they still promote that type of oppression.”
Did you read that? “US help should be take advantage of.” Are we not impeaching President Trump for doing something like that?
Here is where Cpl. Lima can be found in. After the vote on his wife, she shared a news story on Facebook about the incident and had the audacity to like 5 comments that revealed support for his better half.
Those statements likewise consisted of “provocative” declarations about Tlaib, with tips that she “took her [congressional] oath on the Koran,” “honestly hates Jews” which she “supports individuals who flew aircrafts into our [New york city] twin towers and killed over 5,000 people.”
Tlaib is a pretty easy individual to do not like. At a rally simply after she was sworn into Congress, Tlaib, ever the class act in discussing President Trump stated, “we’re gon na impeach the mother * cker.” The outright embodiment of dignity and grace there, Tlaib.
Cpl. Lima liked the posts in assistance of his spouse, and now finds himself suspended, even though he did not make any posts himself.
According to the Miami Herald, the Bay Harbor Islands police department restricts any speech that “mocks, reviles, disparages, or otherwise expresses predisposition against any gender, race, religious beliefs or any safeguarded class of individuals,” even over social media.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) resolved the problem in a tweet under it’s “Islamophobia Watch.”

Obviously calling out Hamas, a group which Tlaib has actually supported, as a terrorist group can now get you in difficulty with your employer.
The suspension is the least of Lima’s problems. Even with the exoneration, the occurrence will likely leave a black mark on his career, which has actually covered nearly four years. He was a candidate to take over as the next chief of the department.
“Throughout my 38 years of police experience my credibility has been impressive!” he composed. “I took the function (and still do!) of performing myself ethically really seriously.”
Lima-Taub also composed a long post supporting her hubby on Facebook, supporting him in face of “corruption” in southern Florida, as well as the work of an unnamed lobbyist.

“Pablo understands that as a chosen authorities, I am not at liberty to delete any remarks affiliated with my political work,” she said.
“As he always does the right thing and he resembled comments that reiterated support of me not being a racist which he now is being punished and suspended for.
To my amazing and honorable, hubby, Pablo Lima: I admire you, love you, support you and stand by your side.
When this matter concludes, I will work diligently to reveal the tracks, which I make certain will lead to a lobbyist who brings absolutely nothing but anguish and corruption to every South Florida city he touches!”
God forbid somebody insult a member of the “team.” If it was President Trump who was insulted, Mr. Politically Correct city supervisor would probably have actually provided Lima a bonus offer.
