Friendly Cops so far at RNC; An Update on (the not-so-friendly) MDPD Major Nancy Perez

•, By Carlos Miller
 At this time, Isaac is still a tropical storm and has veered into the Gulf of Mexico where it may turn into a hurricane before striking New Orleans.

So maybe God is a republican, after all.

At least I’m sure they’ll be telling each other that during the Republican National Convention, which was postponed a day because of the hurricane threat, meaning it will begin Tuesday instead of Monday.

But that’s not going to stop the protest that was scheduled for noon Monday, which I intend to cover.

I took a walk around downtown today with Joel and Robert Chandler, the brothers who have been helping me obtain public records from the Miami-Dade Police Department in preparation for my trial next month.

There were no signs of protesters but plenty of cops. But the cops we ran into were very cordial, including an Orlando police officer named Pasley (pictured above) who jokingly grabbed my camera strap for a photo opp, asking me to not “write a bad caption.”

Other cops offered us refreshments from a cooler. Much of this positive attitude stems from Mickey Osterreicher, general counsel for the National Press Photographers Association, who has been training the cops in how to deal with the media. We met with him for dinner shortly after the photo was taken.
