Go figure ” where officers who are “too often in the limelight” are sometimes sent to work”. No wonder all the cops at the airport are douchebags. Give me a break. This piece of bully trash in blue needs to see t5he inside of a jail cell. But you can tell by their actions that they do not care; All they care about is his career. Not all of the citizens that he has abused. Oh that’s right “proven to be false or were Favorit’s word against the citizen’s.” But what is the word of a lying degenerate cop? Don’t think they lie? Check out this compilation from the month of June- https://deborahleejarrett.com/2017/06/22/compilation-of-lying-cops-6-22-2017/ There is no reason in the world that a cop’s word should be taken over any other person’s. They have as much , if not more incentive to prevaricate.
“After more than two dozen complaints — ranging from unprofessional behavior to excessive force — in a 3 1/2-year period, Orlando Police Officer Michael Favorit Jr. was fired in July 2016.
But he was rehired nearly a year later and is now assigned to Orlando International Airport, where officers who are “too often in the limelight” are sometimes sent to work, Chief John Mina said. Interactions at the airport are less about enforcement and more about customer service, he added.
“I think it will help his career,” Mina said, adding that the assignment will be temporary.
Hundreds of pages of police documents reveal 25 citizen complaints and police internal affairs investigations of Favorit’s behavior from 2013 to April 2016, a number the chief called high and “concerning.”
Favorit, who started at OPD five years ago, declined to comment.
Mina said there’s no average number for complaints per officer, and it often varies, depending on where the officer is assigned. But in 2016, the department looked into about 230 written complaints and conducted internal affairs investigations against the agency’s more than 700 sworn officers, about 450 of whom are first responders.
Favorit was not disciplined for any complaints until he was fired last year after an investigation concluded he and another officer went on an unauthorized chase in December 2015, then tried to cover it up. The city gave him his job back in May, after Mina said it was clear an arbitrator was likely to order the city do so with back pay.
He said Favorit was “counseled” by his superiors, had a meeting with a deputy chief and was issued a body camera. Mina said most of the complaints were minor, proven to be false or were Favorit’s word against the citizen’s.”
