article imageFecal flinging fracas by Florida Police?

Miami - Cops flinging feces in Florida may not be the case, but it does seem possible, and could be a simple case of retaliation.
As reported at Digital Journal, an off-duty Miami Police officer was detained last week for speeding by a member of the Florida Highway Patrol, and now the continuing saga suggests a bit of retaliation may have occurred.
As reported at CBS Miami there has now been a new video released showing two Florida Highway Patrol cars speeding on the Florida Turnpike. The video footage was seemingly shot by an unidentified Police officer and the latest round of disagreement includes a Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) car being targeted by a vandal with as much as five gallons of human waste.
The feces may have come from a porta-potty and was dumped on the trunk, windshield and doors of an FHP cruiser parked outside Officer Joe Sanchez's home. The car had to be cleaned up by a Hazardous Materials crew before the officer and former city commissioner was able to take to the road again.
While the FHP Union President, Bill Smith refrained from stating the obvious, that it was a retaliatory escalation and a just plain old crappy act against fellow officers, he did say that the FHP would be investigating the two FHP officers accused of speeding. The proviso being that the unidentified Miami Police Office would have to come forward and offer more information.
That would of course eliminate the anonymity of the officer and so it remains unlikely to happen. Trooper Smith offered the following quote in an apparent attempt to quell the issue.
“I think it’s just some disgruntled employees of other agencies, hopefully it’s not the City of Miami, I don’t know,”
Trooper Smith in the CBS Miami article didn't hazard a guess as to which other agencies might be unduly angry with the FHP.
