She will likely never get the chance to chase her grandsons through a green patch like Vito Corleone did in his final scene of The Godfather.

Griselda looks directly at the camera. In a soft voice, she delivers Michael a message: "I love you. I can't wait to see you so I can bite your cheeks."

It's a sweltering afternoon on August 23, and Michael cautiously answers the front door of the two-story condo he and his wife rent in Southwest Miami-Dade. He is dressed in a white T-shirt and cream-colored jeans, which cover the electronic anklet that ensures he remains on house arrest. He invites a New Times reporter into his home for a brief conversation. "You had me spooked for a minute," he says.

His living room features finished wood floors and plain, off-white walls. The shades are drawn to keep snooping eyes at bay. Aside from a large flat-screen TV set, there is nothing extravagant about the furnishings. According to Miami-Dade public records, he has never taken out a mortgage or owned any property. He has never been sued either. Aside from getting ticketed seven times for traffic violations between 2003 and 2007, Michael has never been in real trouble with the law until this past May 12.

He has done a pretty good job of living a ghost-like existence. Michael skeptically glances at the reporter's business card. He says he would love to talk, but cites his lawyer's instructions. Then he adds, "I definitely have a lot of things I would like to get off my chest."

All coments that that are critical of the cocaine as being evil. Is wrong because what is evil is the goverental brutall laws imposed on its citizens for using or supplling the product..it has been used for thousand of years...who ate they to tell me what to put or use in my body

To the goverment is a bussiness

I don't think the drug dealers were all that bad. The people paying all that money for drugs are terrible. But there is no way to eradicate the demand for drugs. There will always be a demand and someone has to supply it. If you think the people who supplied it are evil and did it the wrong way, then maybe legalize it and let the government do it in an orderly fashion. That's not so absurd. What's absurd is the "war on drugs". Didn't we once think prohibition was the answer. Look what happened during that era.

Griselda is a parasite. Anyone who admires people like this are uneducated street clowns. All of the dealers, opportunist pilots and Jorge the assassin are going to burn in hell one day. None of what these scumbags did was of any benefit to humanity. As for the economic boom in caused in Miami, the streets should be paved with the blood and bones of the innocent.

Michael Corleone....Seriously man. I have nothing but respect for you and your mother, but you need to stay away from that life my brother. This ain't the 80s anymore. Do you honestly think the Feds are not going to keep an eye on you? That time is gone my brother. You are a well-set man economically. You have legit businesses that are making you millions. Why on earth would you mess with drugs dealings? Don't mess your life up like that bro. Is not worth it.

Mickey Monday exudes douchebaggery and this entire case exudes wannabe'rey! Dude is basically pawning his silver fillings for blow. Nice nostalgic effort to make a case and make a story but these cats are old news with no connect! I am surprised this "sting" did not go down in the parking lot of the former Club Nu, Casanovas, The Mutiny...or Stefano’s...

Its amazing how we glorify such distruction. Cocaine and other drugs have ruined so many lives yet we support musicians and movies that glorify this pitiful life. In a way we are all drug dealers when we buy and support differnet media outlets that create this hype about a chemical that kills. Its a vicious cylce.
