Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.


This is a bit of a leftover from yesterday, but a reporter from the Tribune Co.-owned WSFL was trying to get an interview with the father of a Coral Gables High student in the wake of Tuesday's stabbing. His daughter is allegedly the girl who the two boys were fighting over. The man answers the reporter's question with a swift kick to the stomach.

Violence is never the answer, but you have to figure something like this is going to happen once in a while when you shove cameras in the faces of people who are probably going through a bit of an emotional shock. [h/t to SFLTV]

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
