FDLE busts Opa-Locka cop for kidnapping man who wanted to complain about police brutality

Here's a good way for police to temporarily stop people from complaining against them -- only to wind up in jail. The press release:

MIAMI - Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Miami Regional Operations Center, arrested of German Bosque, 49, on charges of kidnapping, a first degree felony, a violation of section 787.01 Florida Statues, and tampering with witness/victim/informant, a third degree felony, section 914.22 (2) (f) Florida Statues and battery, a first degree misdemeanor, section 784.03 Florida Statutes.

Investigators allege that on Aug. 3, 2011, Bosque illegally handcuffed and detained the victim at the Opa-Locka Police Station after he tried to file a complaint. Earlier the same day, Bosque allegedly punched the victim while responding to a domestic call.

When the victim tried to file a complaint against Bosque, investigators believe Bosque forcefully escorted him from the lobby, handcuffed him and placed him into a holding area.  The investigation shows the victim was held against his will for a short time and was never given the opportunity to file a complaint.

FDLE began its investigation in Feb. 2012 after a complaint to the State Attorney’s Office was forwarded to FDLE.

Bosque turned himself in today around 5 p.m. at FDLE Miami Regional Operations Center and was booked into the Miami Dade Main Jail.  He is being held without bond.  Bosque was terminated from Opa-Locka PD in October 2012.

The State Attorney’s Office, 11th Judicial Circuit will prosecute this case.

Well, he did earn the epithet "Florida's Dirtiest Cop" for a reason. About time he got arrested for something. Are the coppers unions defending him?
