PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – The drama and political theater this week at the Miami Commission had fingers pointing in lots of directions.

Commissioner Joe Carollo led the inquisition-like meetings, building a case against the city’s new police chief Art Acevedo.

But the chief struck first with a memo alleging corruption among the commissioners.

In this real-life telenovela, there are subplots and context.

One person who might shed some authentic light on all of it is Miami’s recently retired police chief Jorge Colina.

He joined This Week in South Florida hosts Glenna Milberg and Michael Putney to discuss, and their conversation can be seen at the top of this page.
