Doesn't change a thing. It's safe. Only parts where crime happens for the most part are in ghettos and for the most part it happens to the people who are crime related.

I was in Miami last weekend to visit my parents. Someone stole my license plate. Luckily I was able to replace it really fast. I give the police credit for doing that so fast. Miami is a beautiful place but the people just ruin it. I'm not saying everyone is awful, but so many people are. It's like a lot of the normal and good people moved out and they have been replaced with crap.

Actually Miami is a more dangerous place to be in than you think, and I know this from personal experience. So your comment about it being safe short of the ghetto's is not accurate.

However my question was not so much how safe is Miami in general, but rather putting forth the reality of how poor the police department has been for many years.
So when you do have trouble, even in places where you would normally feel safe, the unprofessional cops are not something you can depend upon. Granted their response times are not as bad as parts of Detroit, but the fact that you have bums behind the badge who should have never been hired in the first place, is something residents should be very concerned with.

Possibly the key factor in how safe You feel, is like the posters above say, from personal experience. Although personal is more traumatic does not represent the overall environment.

In the building I'm staying for now, there was a domestic dispute and the first Cop car arrived within 4 minutes, a couple more in, maybe 8 minutes.
On the recent traffic disaster with the Ironman (discussed in another thread) all the officers to whom I spoke, were utterly professional, even when they were getting tired and overwhelmed.
Obviously not every single person on any given Profession is going to be exemplary.

Is there a point to you posting this now? Those incidents took place in 2010 and the officers and supervisor were fired in 2012. How is this at all relevant to how safe we're supposed to feel today?

Remember, it's not Carol City anymore, it is Miami Gardens. A new and fresh place with the same old problems. Who lead them to believe that a name change was going to rid them of all of the problems that they are plagued with.
