Police Union Chief ‘Reprimanded’ for Doxxing Innocent Woman Who Made Video of Him Speeding

Miami, FL — In late January, Claudia Castillo pulled over Miami Police Lieutenant Javier Ortiz and accused him of speeding. She filmed the encounter and posted it to YouTube, where it went viral.

In response to being caught breaking the law, Ortiz, leader of the Miami FOP, used his police powers to access and post Castillo’s personal information and photo online. He had doxxed her.

According to the Miami Herald‘s report in March, Castillo received so many calls at work that she became concerned about her job security. “They sent me home yesterday,” the project manager said.

For ten months, not so much as an inquiry took place into Ortiz’s misconduct. This was in spite of the media coverage and a complaint filed by Claudia Castillo herself notifying the department that this tyrant officer had been doxxing her.

This was also in spite of the fact that after he doxxed her, Ortiz continued to harass the innocent woman. In February, Ortiz went to Facebook with a photo of Castillo holding a Pepsi can and posted to his followers that they should  “call Claudia Castillo at her cell… and let her know drinking and driving on a boat isn’t safe.”

Last Thursday, however, the department managed to wrap up their ‘investigation’ and noted that Javier Ortiz, president of the Miami Fraternal Order of Police, was ‘reprimanded’ for “discourtesy” and “improper procedure,” according to the internal affairs report, as reported by PINAC.

In spite of the ‘investigation’ finding Ortiz was in the wrong, this problem cop will not be fired, demoted, or even suspended. In fact, the ‘reprimand’ consists of little more than a paper entry into his record.

According to PINAC, Ortiz had no idea that he’d even been reprimanded. When the police accountability group contacted Ortiz, he replied with the following statement:

The woman is a danger to my members and law enforcement as a whole. No regrets. She’s an officer safety risk pulling over a vehicle on the side of I-95. I’m in the process of appealing my write up as a violation of my first amendment rights.

It is important to note that doxxing, an abbreviation for document tracing, the Internet-based practice of researching and publishing personally identifiable information about an individual — is illegal.

However, this officer faced no legal repercussions. Instead of adhering to his public service and protecting the rights of citizens, this cop became the bully.

When we look at his past, it becomes evident that Javier Ortiz was always a bully.

In December of last year, this hero police officer made headlines when he took to his Twitter account and declared that Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old who was killed by Cleveland police for playing with a toy gun, was a thug.

According to the Miami New Times, Ortiz criticized Marilyn Smith, a woman who posted a video of Miami police beating a man in handcuffs. Smith claims that police tried to knock her cellphone out of her hands and demanded that she delete the video.

When he’s not attacking black people for protesting police killings of children, this stand-up officer is demonizing an entire religion.

It seems that no matter what police do these days, they simply will not be held accountable. It is this very lack of accountability that is currently driving a wedge between the police and the policed. Until it is brought to an abrupt halt, we can only expect this divide to grow.

  • First off, he should be fined for speeding.

    Afterwards he can be fired.

    Hi is a typical low IQ POS scumbag with a badge that pretends to be a cop. That is the biggest problem with rogue cops is the union and bullies like Ortizzy that heads the group of thugs in blue. Kill them all, good riddance. It is a total police state, military is not allowed on the streets of America, but yet that is what has happened. They have militarized all the cops in the U.S. They are all psychopaths with egos as big as their heads. Escalate, escalate is all they know how to do.

    • Doran Zeigler

      You are exactly correct. Because of the Posse Comitatus act, the military cannot be used as police. But, that is no longer the problem as the federal government decided to militarize and blur the line between the two. Now with Trump coming to power, police organizations across the country say they are going to hold the dimwit Trump to his promise of further militarizing local police by supplying them with more armored vehicle, rocket propelled grandees and a lot more.

      Obama had curtailed the militarization process because of the huge outcry. But, dumb Trump, who is no champion of the people, stated he would resume the militarization process and giving them even more potent weapons.

      What’s next, short range nuclear weapons or depleted uranium shells? The completion of Police State AmeriKKKa will be finalized and polished by our next analized oricfice president. Woe to the people. It isn’t enough that we are slaves to capitalism, they are now going to terrorize us on another level.

      People, we complain online and jump up and down, but we are losing this war big time.

        You are a bit mixed up, the militarization began on your queero hero’s watch. Obama is the stupid sob who decided it would be a good idea to allow the police to have military armaments in the first place.
        Weren’t you one of those ‘useless idiots’ who was supposed to have moved away after Mr Trump was elected??

        • Guy

          Perhaps it is you that is sort of “A Bit Mixed Up,”and check for yourself what sort of weaponry that the Pd’s and swat had in there toy boxes to use against us, long befor Obama got to the plate. Or maybe you have forgotten, what was used by our Militarized Police Forces against the people in Waco Tx. & Ruby Hill’s, that were gifts from both the Bush and Clinton administrations.

          The Pd have just been adding to the list, more so now and recently, as the result of more funding available to them durring Obama than in the past, plus with even more money through assest forfeiture funding, they are able to buy the real neat gadgets and gizmos they like to have around just in case !
