Video shows officer desecrating Jewish sacred Scripture in antisemitic act
Miami, FL – A city of Miami police sergeant is in hot water after a video surfaced of him tossing Jewish religious scripture — and using some choice words to describe it.
The video shows Roberto Destephan tossing the Tanakh, or the Hebrew Bible, and a wooden box engraved with the Star of David into a truck bed.
“We don’t need this shit either, man,” he says in the video, tossing the box and then the book into the truck bed. “This crap? Fuck this. Taking out the trash, dawg.”
Attorneys John and Andrea Cunill discovered the controversial video.
The Miami Fraternal Order of Police released a statement saying the “doctored video” was released as political “blackmail” to stop Destephan’s re-election campaign.
Roberto Destephan was suspended Friday .
