Why Miami is a complete shithole

Now this is why I love having a blog! Venting and letting the world know about it. Hopefully someone will read this. Anyway, after recently purchasing a new car, my wife decides that she is finally up for test driving it (keep in mind she is not all that comfortable with manual transmission). So we pull out onto the road and she is a little shaky while getting comfortable with the car. Anyway, we pull up to a red light to make a right hand turn. Behind us we hear a horn honk. She pulls up a little to try and see past the car next to us and again the horn honks. I look in the rearview mirror and see some hag of a police officer throwing up her hands. I couldn't believe it. "Did a police officer just honk at us?" We make the right hand turn and my wife pulls over not wanting to drive anymore and being a little more than angry. Sure enough the hag pulls up next to us and rolls down her window. We were a little more than angry and I think that pissed her off so she mutters something about respecting a police officer. All right... a couple of things. A) It is not against the law to wait at a red light and not make a right hand turn. That is only something you should do if you feel safe. B) Secondly it IS illegal to honk your horn when there is not an immediately dangerous situation.

The moral of the story is that the hag was fairly apologetic, but made some sort of comment about it not being the time of day for people who didn't know how to drive. But seriously... drivers are bad enough in Miami, we don't need police inspiring road rage. Assholes.

Dude..., really!?!?
Teach your wife how to drive at a Walmart parking lot at night. Miami is a shithole, don't make it worst by slowing up traffic....
As much as Miami cops suck, that one was right!

Be part of the solution, not the problem!

It really sucks that you came across such a rude officer, especially since your wife is still getting used to driving, but your story has little to no relevance to the title "Miami is a shithole." Not once do you provide any evidence of why Miami is a shitty city or why you dislike it. Bad police is not a reason for disliking a city, since you can find those in every city across the world.

Having moved to Miami (from New Orleans) and spent two months here...and having lived in 6 other countries and all over the US...I feel I can say that Miami is a shithole. Not a shithole in the "nothing to do sense", but a shithole in the sense that it is the neon blue douchebag zapper of the western and northern hemispheres. Its proponents call it multicultural -- and that it true -- Miami attracts that 0.1% of national populations comprised of Snookis and Situations. It is...without a doubt...the douchebag capital of the world.
