Vote For Miami's Worst Cop of 2012

It's pretty hard to follow in the large boot steps of John Timoney, the one-time Miami police chief. In fact, ever since Miami New Times crowned Timoney "America's Worst Cop" in 2007, it's taken us five years to find suitable successors to the title.

But the quintet of contenders in Miami this year up have certainly done a heck of a job tarnishing the badge.

There are so many bad police chiefs, we can't decide who deserves the top honor. So readers, please help us by voting for your pick for Miami's Worst Cop in 2012. Make your picks in the comments section or in the comments section on our Facebook page. We'll announce the winner before the New Year:
