The Stage: Commissioner Mike Gelin

The Stage with Tamarac Commissioner Mike Gelin.

Commissioner Gelin went viral when he called out Deputy Gallardo during an award ceremony.

Back in 2015 Deputy Gallardo falsely arrested Commissioner Gelin and lied on the police report.

At the award ceremony Gelin took the mic and addressed the situation in front of the audience.

“Joshua Gallardo, will you come down for a second?” asked Commissioner Gelin, “It’s good to see you again.”

“You probably don’t remember me, but you’re the police officer who falsely arrested me four years ago,” he told Gallardo, who nodded silently, still clutching his award. “You lied on the police report. I believe you’re a rogue police officer, you’re a bad police officer and you don’t deserve to be here.”

This move caught my attention and the rest of the world, which is why I asked him to come on to my show. The Stage is a platform I've created to bring light to situations like this which happens every day.
