Gotta luv the ethical opines of our officers, especially the police chief

What an idiot, makes one wonder how many times he lied during reporting an arrest Hmmm. :grin

Miami Gardens police chief Stephen E. Johnson was fired after being arrested Friday night for allegedly soliciting a prostitute in Dania Beach.

According to a Broward Sheriff's Office police report, Johnson, 53, was arrested Friday evening at a hotel as part of an undercover operation conducted by BSO's Dania Beach Crime Suppression Team. Detectives had placed an escort advertisement on Backpage.com offering a "two-girl special" along with price rates and a telephone number.


A detective posing as a prostitute at the hotel answered the phone when Johnson called. During their conversation, police said, Johnson stated that he wanted to "do everything."

Johnson was quoted a price of $80 for a 30-minute session. When the detective on the phone advised him of the "two-girl special," Johnson said he was interested and agreed to a price of $100 for two girls, according to the report.

At 6:20 p.m. Friday, Johnson arrived at Room 423 and knocked on the door; he was let into the room by an undercover detective. Johnson produced the $100; the transaction was captured on audio and video. Johnson was subsequently arrested. He had two condoms in his pocket at the time of his arrest, deputies said.

He was booked into the Broward Main Jail on Friday night on a charge of soliciting prostitution. Bond was set at $300. It was unknown early Saturday whether he had bonded out.



Come on at 53 you cannot have enough money to just buy drinks, dinner and such and do it the normal way....really

    Miami Gardens had an interesting story done on its police force recently by This American Life. It is a real eye opener as to just how bad things can get in a department.

  • 2 girls X 1/2 hour for $100, too good of a deal to pass up.
    Hell that's $60 off.

    Sounds to me like the cops did the soliciting. There must have been a rule change.

    Perhaps, never been a cop but I do not believe "Stings" are a new thing. Why they solicite online, perhaps to catch potentially dangerous perps.

    "Bad Apple"?

    Ah yes....a member of LE caught sewing his wild oats with a woman who takes money for pleasure......he's already lost his job and respect he had in the community because he broke a law that was on the books....and bond was set at $300....probably an allowable fine of not much more.

    And I hope that he does get the "maximum punishment allowable by law"...even if it be for a "crime" that many don't feel should be....and is legal in at least one other state that I know of......but the law is the law....

    Just like the laws on marijuana usage, possession, growing....etc.....

    I hope those "BAD APPLES" get the maximum allowable punishment by law as well.

    Cops don't call bad guys "perps".

    There are (or were) certain guidelines in place in running solicitation stings to avoid the risk of dismissal as entrapment. It usually did not involve advertising prostitution services in print or the officer posing as the prostitute setting the price or specifying those services. The solicitation charge is successfully prosecutable by the offender doing so.

    In this example, the agency was soliciting and the chief was responding to the solicitation.

    I'm not allowed to mention a certain forum member directly, indirectly veiled or however else they put it. Or I would be banned. So I'll just post the edited/deleted version and no one gets banned and I don't have any of my posts deleted.

    Cops don't call bad guys "perps".

    Actually that is true, about a little over a decade ago got robbed at my hotel in Tampa, plus a few others, none the less just lost a little cash but my Rolex too...total ****....well somehow the local cops got him later and found my watch. When presented with the line up photos I could Id him no problem, cops actually high fived when I did. Now part of the Id process required me to give a really brief description of whom this was, and I used the word 'perp' and they asked me to rewrite it to not include such, just normal english which I did.

    What do cops call bad guys?

    What if the undercover detective says, "Hey, big boy...wanna date?", as the chief slowly cruises down crack alley? Is that considered solicitation? ...seems like splitting curly hairs to me.

    Saw the ex-Chief interviewed. Said the "stress of his job" made him do it "for the first time ever". Now, my job certainly has it's burdens and I often feel stressed but never once thought hiring a hooker would make it better. ****?
