VIDEO: Two Marked Police Cars Torched in Florida

Police responded early Friday morning to a home in Northeast Miami-Dade, Fla., where two marked police cars parked in the driveway were apparently deliberately set on fire, bringing the count up to at least four incidents of area police cruisers being vandalized this year, reports the Miami Herald.

In January and February two unmanned Miami-Dade police cars were sprayed with bullets. No one was hurt in any of the incidents but the deliberate targeting of police vehicles has raised concern at a time when tensions between law enforcement and the public have been flaring up across the country.

Friday’s incident involved one car belonging to Miami-Dade police. The second car is a Hallandale Beach police cruiser. The fire caused significant damage to both vehicles. The Miami-Dade Police Department is investigating the cause.

Make no mistake about it, the war has begun. First thing departments need to do is stop going on every damn TV Show and showing police training / tactics ECT.. (good or bad). Take care of each other Blue. It's going to be a rough road ahead.

Florida is big on take home cruisers so these marked cars were probably parked in the officer's driveway. Most Florida agencies allow road officers to use their cruiser both on and off duty as long as they armed when they use the car and they live within a preset distance from work. A small city or county can have as many as 60 marked cars on the street at any time but maybe 10 to 15 are actually on duty. It makes the area appear more heavily patrolled than it really is and it works good too. There is a special CAD selection on their dispatch system for off duty officers in marked cars just in case they would be needed as manpower for something special.
