A female officer was transported to the hospital in “extremely critical condition,” but she died in the operating room, he added.

Do not go to Miami unless armed. I was down there last week and all I had was a can of Bear Spray. I felt very uncomfortable.

Uncomfortable?

Good thing you didn't drink the whole six-pack.

I’m sure this was another act by a Bush, Palin, Tea Party supporter. My heart goes out to the officers family.

Miami is close to being the Detriot of the south. Middle and upper middle class have moved and Haitian/Jamacan gangs rule the streets. Very few nice safe areas left and property values are still in a dead fall.
Open season on tourists.

Whatever Miami Police get paid, it isn't enough. Dade county is a cesspool.. So is Broward and Palm Beach actually!

It's probably just as dangerous being a cab driver in Miami...

If they can't deal with the job hazards, I suggest they go work at Walmart of the water company. The tax payers are tapped out.

That being said, I'm glad the suspect was killed.

“Miami is close to being the Detriot of the south. Middle and upper middle class have moved and Haitian/Jamacan gangs rule the streets. Very few nice safe areas left and property values are still in a dead fall.”

NOT accurate!

Some of Miami IS a Turd World pool of limitless cess.

However, much of it is not.

A friend is probably one of the oldest surveyors still working in America. He enjoys doing it, so he is actively surveying at 88. I have known him some 30 years, and in the course of those years, have accompanied him on his surveys in all parts of Miami, from Gables by the Sea and some island residences in Biscayne Bay, Miami Beach waterfront estates to Little Haiti and Highly Illegal (Oops -make that Hialeah).

Much crime in Miami is black on black crime, crime relating to the drug industry, an the expected crime resulting from allowing anyone to move here without requiring an appropriate acculturation program.

Were Miami to allow Open Carry, the crime rate would drop. If bounties were paid for all violent criminals killed in the commission of their crime, then Miami would soon have a very low crime rate.

Bounties and no gun restrictions forked for much of America’s history. They will work now.

‘Nuff said.

I wouldn't worry about it. We get the same comments about LA, California etc..

The only concerned I would have here are for the dead officers family, as you can bet the rent, their having a terrible night.

What's hard to believe for me Tom, is the AM takes two cops shot to death, out of breaking news, and puts in "Tennessee Democrat stands by Nazi remark"

Priorities in pieces on the ground.

Johnny Simms, 23, ......Simms was a "documented career criminal" with five pages of offenses, Miami-Dade Police Director James Loftus said.

What was he doing on the street?

Can the families of the cops and or victims of this guys career, sue and or prosecute the judge or persons responsible for allowing this guy onto the streets?
