Miami blogger on crusade against cop
And a few of us who have not been raided. Yet.
The latest to emerge on the scene is a blogger from Miami who has dedicated his blog to a single cop from the Miami-Dade Police Department.
The lawyer, Delaila Estefano, along with John Romney and Michael Martinez, are accused of using identity theft to obtain a mortgage to buy a house for three times more than it was paid for less than a week earlier.
The man whose identity was allegedly stolen is named Bernardo Barreira.
The Straw Buyer believes that Barreira is the guilty party in this case even though he is being listed as the victim. The blogger also claims that Barreira has not only has committed mortgage fraud in the past, but has also reported his identity stolen in a previous unrelated case, which in his opinion, only proves his guilt in the latter case.
Baluja, who was assigned to the Miami-Dade Police Department’s Mortgage Fraud Task Force at the time of the arrest, has since been transferred to the auto theft department, which the blogger claims is a demotion.
And in that post, the blogger even goes as far as posting a photo of what is supposedly Baluja’s house, which if you remember, that is what got prompted police to arrest a Virginia blogger.
However, he did not list the address and he simply used a Google Images photo instead of taking it himself.
And finally, the blogger claims that Baluja has missed the last four depositions regarding the mortgage fraud case, which you would think would place him in contempt of court. But police officers apparently have their own rules.
So don’t be surprised if you hear about another raid on another blogger in the near future.
