Is there any limit to the destruction that Miami City Commissioner Keon Hardemon will cause to the Historical Black Community of Overtown, Miami.
Bradley Market as reported by the Miami New Times is another Black business that has been shut down by Hardemon. Bradley Market first open its doors in Overtown close to 50 years ago, and has remained leaders of the community. Promoting Black independence and Black economics. Unfortunately for the community Hardemon won a close race to represent them as their District 5 City Commissioner.
Hardemon comes from a background of destruction. A family legacy marred by corruption, jail, and drugs. Hardemon the former Public Defender seeks revenge against anyone who spoke out against his family’s corruption. This is how his disdain for the Black Community was born. The Hardemon family has now properly position themselves, and seems hell-bent on destroying the Community that sent some of their members to jail. There is a fox in the hen-house.
Hardemon mostly raised by his mother, a retired Miami City Police Officer, uses the Miami City Police Department as a weapon of destruction against Black owned business in the Overtown Community. Forcing businesses to violate the Constitutional rights of the members of the Community or be shut down.
For the past two years he has allocated over 1.5 million dollars for added Police Services. Allowing six Special Officers and one Commander to do what is called double dipping, which is illegal. Hardemon if not stopped in his efforts for reelection in November will end up killing everyone in Overtown.
Hardemon who is also chairperson of SEOPW CRA uses the tax funded proceeds belonging to the people against the people. The CRA gets $30 million a year for the Redevelopment and strengthening of Black people in Overtown. Hardemon uses this money to enrich his family and put his foot on the neck of Blacks. Overtown is crying out for help and protection.
Some like Richard Corcoran, Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives, have heard this call. The Hardemon’s have started their powerful game of intimidation against Mr. Corcoran. Hopefully Mr. Corcoran will not fall victim.
The lawmakers in Tallahassee have started the process of dismantling Hardemon’s SEOPW CRA. Although the community appreciate any help it receives the action of dismantling the SEOPW CRA maybe a little overboard. The community is just looking for an action to have Hardemon removed.
Assistance State’s attorney Tim Vandergiesen initiated an investigation into the corruption of Hardemon. Focusing on his relationship with the Martin Luther King Economic Development Corporation.
Mr. Vandergiesen encourages anyone in Dade County to step forward in helping with the investigation of Hardemon.
