Miami is tiny, and traffic sucks everywhere. If you take a glance at the square Km near the opening paragraph you might be able to imagine the sprawl.

Have you ever left the states?

Previous commenters actually live here?

Comment on topic at least. It isn’t trivial to launch rockets. Weak “arguments” like calling people names has zero value.


Try to think.

Your opinion does not matter. These are situations.

The move here is clear if you casually follow global politics. Everybody arguing in the comments with their feelings is missing the news. It doesn’t matter. It is simply a play. All you can do is to see how it pans out. The end.

to a bunch of previous posts:

I love dogs. I have dogs. But the problem is that not everyone loves YOUR dog. The dog being a reflection of the owner is undoubtedly true, and even a quick park trip can tell you a lot about a person from the behavior of their pet. I do not want to sit around that kind of punishment, despite my fondness of animals. Humans belong in trains. Dogs (animals) deserve better than that. Take a walk, drive IF you must.

thats a nice armchair opinion.

interestingly enough, a casio keyboard and a japanese woman are responsible for the explosion of reggae and its subsequent genres, crossovers, and influence worldwide

It is a little strange to read the unnecessarily butt-hurt comments here, when no additional humans were hurt, and the police did their job. @ a bunch of you positing fallacious arguments.

That is inaccurate. You are held for up to 10 days at a time in (usually) the precinct you are arrested in. After 10 days an extension may be requested for another 10 by the detective/prosecutor, with a maximum of 30 days total.

Going to the prosecutors office involves a bus trip (chain gang style) a few times a week. Busses make rounds similar to school busses, only stopping at different precincts along the way to add to the chain.

Ride more busses? It’s about 50/50 and usually depends on the service operator/city/hardware setup.

Guaranteed it was curve adjusted and leveled at least. Not “shopped” to hell and back with amateur “hdr-ifying” though.

@Robert Cikki

There are probably less than a handful here who understand how data works. The rest are parroting what they read on facebook / being ignorant for fun.

To establish a data set, you would first need to establish an unbiased control - of which there is none.
