Special Crime Watch Meeting this week

The Golden Pines Neighborhood Association  is hosting a Crime Watch meeting on Tuesday, June 4 at 7 pm. The association would like me to remind everyone that crime is happening on both sides of US1. Mayor Regalado, Commissioner Sarnoff and the police will be attending this meeting, so many of your questions may be answered right on the spot.

Further, Commissioner Sarnoff started a petition here to get more police on the streets in the City of Miami.

What a joke

How many morons call crime a joke? We are seeing violent crimes where people are being beat up and their valuable stolen.

And since the City hasn't come and done something (yet) to reduce crime either by working with residents to provide a peaceful solution or cracking down with more patrols then what else is there to do?

A lot of people are asking for the pictures of suspects to be posted around the neighborhood so they can be clearly identified when they move about the streets.

Others are citing even more paranoid ideas that the city is allowing crime to take place for political benefit.

If you are not a moron and have an interest in the neighborhood crime then attend that meeting.

Did they ever catch the red headed bandit? Last week I saw a female with long, bright red hair walking down Grand near the CVS. She was with a male. Both looked to be in their early 20s

Just over a week ago two police officers at the beach slammed a 14 year old carrying a puppy to the ground and arrested him for making "dehumanizing stares" at them according to the police report. Who is committing crimes here?

I agree that there are sadistic people who join cops to get their kicks from bashing a face in and terrorizing people.
The only solution is to keep the mandate of the police service to local issues. Militarization of police and rampant abuse would take care of itself (with active participation of the community).

It's Hypocritical to complain about it if one does not attend.

Perhaps if our City of Miami Police spent less time behind the counter and just hanging around the convenience store next to The Last Carrot we might see some difference.

I have been in law enforcement for nearly 20 years (in another state and federal for 15 years). I hate painting our local law enforcement with a broad brush, but I see a lot of unprofessional behavior from our local police. More cops isn't the answer if we keep hiring more of the same.

The standards that our local officers are held to need to be raised and should be reflected in the hiring practices. The State Attorney's Office could also do a better job working with the police to ensure our community gets the level of law enforcement it deserves.

The other day I was eating with a friend who is in watch business and there were two cops sitting next to us in civilian clothing but the badge and gun, my friend looked over and asked me how can a cop in Miami be wearing a ten thousand dollar watch on his wrist.

The problem is that Miami for some reason prefers to hire criminals for law enforcement positions. It is really hard to find cops without criminal records here. Worse yet, imagine all the crimes they simply get away with because they are on the force.

the best solution is to know and look out for your neighbors - that's the biggest benefit of these meetings I believe.

I happen to be red head with bright long red hair so it concerns me that apparently the only description of the bandit that was ever given is a young person with bright red hair. Anyway, if i recall she had shoulder length hair, but still. I don't feel like getting knocked to the ground like that child and his dog in the comment above.
