A New Times investigation reveals "a pattern of police officers involved in the drug trade in one of Miami's inner-city precincts." The reporter finds that most drug dealers know the cops and often talk to them. Some of the major findings are that an officer has admitted being an accomplice in drug deals, and that some of the talks between dealers and cops have been recorded. The faulty officer, however, has never been charged despite having signed a confession, and the wiretaps have fallen through the cracks, the story discovers. The department's internal-affairs office failed to investigate the conduct of the police officers who allegedly had connections to drug dealers.
