Miami Dade has not lost anything in Liberty City or the War on Drugs. North side district is tantamount to a slum in Iraq. The police are doing a fine job despite the fact that our crooked corrupt government spends hundreds of millions on a baseball stadium rather than funding law enforcement. I am outraged that the highlight of your story is the focus on police brutality and harrasment. I wish you'd ride with a Northside District officer and see what they are up against. With just a small squad officers patrolling 5 square miles of crime, crack, shoot outs, prostitution, drug dealers and strippers how do you expect them the police to be unnerved, jittery, scared, and hardcore. Wake up they are not policing Beverly hills or sitting back at your computer dreaming of how police are brutal and searching for the perfect derogatory adjective. Wake up.
