Miami-Dade narcotics detectives were investigating a marijuana growhouse when they were surprised by a suspect who had just arrived on his BMW. Shootout that ended with one detective wounded and the suspect dead was captured on the growhouse’s many, audio equipped CCTV cameras.
Detective John Saavedra was wounded with three bullets to the gut. Suspected marijuana trafficker Gerardo Delgado was heavily outmanned and outgunned but fought bravely till his last breath. He took cover behind a tree but was hit by Detective Jorge Milan. Still, he continued to fight back until a headshot put an end to the standoff. At that point, the gun flew out of his hand and the suspected trafficker crumbled to the ground, writhing in pain and moaning loudly.
After the shooting, the police arrested Gerardo Delgado’s cohort – 60 year old Luis Estevanell. 60 year old chap involved with alleged drug trafficking – fuck yeah! Although just how much is Marijuana a drug is disputable. But it’s a good means to keep the privately owned prisons to capacity so the crooked owners can stuff their pockets full of tax payers’ money while at the same time assisting the big pharma guys to get theirs – when it’s illegal for people to cure themselves with natural herbs that can be grown in their backyard, people are stuck having to buy expensive pills that have side effects and thus keep them sick and dependent on the big pharma products until their untimely death.
Inside the suspected growhouse police found 80 pounds of Marijuana. Luis Estevanell was charged with possession of cocaine, trafficking of marijuana and second-degree felony murder. Because of the way the Florida laws are written, Luis Estevanell can be held responsible for murder of Gerardo Delgado, even though it was the cops that murdered him.
