Too soft on young criminals

 

Once again our judicial system went soft on this young criminal Quintin Vicks, who at the age of 16 robbed a woman at gunpoint, a serious felony. Last week, he was arrested and charged in the murder of a security guard.

If these “baby-faced teens” are tough enough to do the crime they should get what they deserve — long years in prison in order to protect hardworking men and women from these wannabe gangsters.

    As LeBron leaves, keep it classy Miami

    Alright, so James is leaving. We will survive, really. We will miss him for sure.

  • Thanks, LeBron

    Downtown Miami’s resurgence was well under way before The Big 3 arrived, gained momentum alongside four consecutive championship runs and won’t be slowing down anytime soon.

  • Missing him LeBron

    Although devastated by his decision to leave us, I am immensely grateful to LeBron James for what he gave us: the best four years the Miami sports scene has ever experienced.
