  1. So officers didn't shoot at the white man running into police officers on a motorcycle?! Had this been a black man he would have already been dead because police would have shot at him!!!

  2. I'm in miami but we know to stay home the visitors are too crazy getting high and don't know how to control they selves

  3. Small minded people always ruin things for everybody. Bringing the heat of the police on themselves and everybody else why just trying to enjoy the beach
