Threatening blog post traced to North Miami Beach police computer

North Miami Beach police are investigating a threatening submission to a resident’s blog that was posted using a city-issued computer.

The anonymous post invited criminals to pay a visit to two outspoken city activists.

The statements under investigation were submitted to gadfly Stephanie Kienzle’s blog votersopinion.com and was traced back to a city-issued police department computer, North Miami Beach Major Kathy Katerman confirmed.

Kienzle, who sent a letter to the police department requesting an investigation last week, never published the post on her site — which requires the moderators to approve submissions — but did save the text.

In the post, the writer defends the police department against proposed cuts during the city’s budget process. The poster wrote, “There has been a tremendous amount of good work done by the North Miami Beach PD. There is a lot of crime deterred, caught, and handled by the PD. The speciality units that are being threatened to be dismantled are only going to assist the criminals. Gangs and criminals only look for opportunities.”

The poster called out two council meeting regulars who have supported the city’s call to reduce the police force. In the post, resident Mubarak Kazan, who is Muslim, is called “Al-Jazzerri” and Bert Kehren, a resident of German heritage, a “Nazi”. The poster goes on to say, “criminals, here it is” — followed by a description of Kazan’s house and directions to where both men live. The poster tells the criminals to “have fun”.

No surprise to me. I was stabbed 3 times about 2 blocks from the NMBPD on ne 19th ave and of course no help from police. Was hit and run by female driver and the female driver was not charged . They did manage to give me a jay walking ticket. They should ALL be fired.

yeah I'm scared to call the police now in the event of an actual emergency. They always make me feel like I'm the one who is doing something wrong. "So sir, you got mugged while you were walking home from work at midnight?!?" Yes sir. "oh, well what were you actually doing outside at midnight?!?...do you mind if we search you to make sure your not carrying any weapons or anything that will harm us" lol it's rediculous.
