The Miami Herald has the report:
The two Miami Beach police officers accused of yelling anti-gay epithets at a tourist, kicking him and falsely arresting him after he called 911 to report them beating a man in a South Beach park are going to be fired, according to city officials.
On Monday, City Commissioner Michael Góngora said he was told by Miami Beach’s city manager that the city intends to kick officers Frankly Forte and Eliut Hazzi off the police force.
“I was personally disgusted by the actions taken by them and have been pushing the city administration quite some time to commence termination proceedings,” he said.
Babak Movahedi, president of Miami Beach Gay Pride, said he was glad the gay community “stood strong” and pressured Beach officials to take action.
