I resent that!
Seriously, though, I don't know where Miami gets this bum rep. There are rough parts of town where it's unsafe to walk to the grocery store after dark. In most neighborhoods, people feel, and are, safe.
South Beach, the main club scene here, has it's share of drunken fools making scenes. The same as any other place in the world where you get a mix of young, sometimes immature, people looking for kicks, clubs, alcohol and, unfortunately, an illicit drug trade. However, there's not a club or bar I can think of where things would be allowed to escalate to the degree of this incident. The club's bouncers, as well as the police, would be involved in a heartbeat.

surfers is the only place you can go, its where every nightclub, restaurant and thing to do is within miles. its just one of those violent places unfortunately.





Dude, then don't go! Buy a couple of six packs, get a sound system, call your friends and hang out at your place or theirs.
To me, having a drink with friends is about fun. If it involves hanging out in a rough atmosphere, where my woman is apt to be insulted, fights are common, people pull knives, there's no security people to keep a lid on things and the police don't bother to come, where's the fun???? I'd be so alert and tense, I wouldn't be able to relax, much less enjoy myself.
You make it sound like you don't have a choice in the matter, just like you don't have a choice about carrying a knife around. Fact is you do, and it seems you choose this environment, and want to be told you have no choice but to pack a blade. Well, I'm not going to. Hang out in that type of place, expect trouble. Use a blade, expect at best to do jail time, at worst to be gutted like a fish by some other fool with a knife.

Lol! My comment was intended to say that the Gold Coast is actually very quiet and peaceful - not that Miami is particularly violent or unsafe! (Miami and the Gold Coast have similar climates and "lifestyle").

Otherwise I agree with you and Cord. Don't go out if you keep getting in trouble.

I used to go to the Gold Coast (Surfer's Paradise) every year on holiday (my father's family lives there). Never had a cross word with anyone. If anyone ever called out some drunken nonsense I'd just smile and wave. Then go back to the apartment and look in the fridge...

Oh, hey, that's the spirit in which I took your remark.
That said, though, I wrote what I did thinking of other readers. The fact is that during what got to be called the "Cocaine Wars" of the late 70s and 80s, violence in Miami, which was the focal point for cocaine traffic at the time, got to be outrageous. Those times are long gone, but the image of wildness is still with us, unfairly. Just setting the record straight.

.. lol how funny. just this night i was at the police because i got into some trouble. yes. some ppl are ar$es!

i was walking down the street on my way to my gf´s house when i heard some girl screaming.
i took a look around the corner and saw 4 guys surrounding a girl holder her hands and pulling her to the ground by the hair and one slapping her into the face. i quickly called my friends which work in a bar around the corner and told them to call the police and an abulance to the place where i was.

i told them not to come because i did not know if any1 of these guys were armed or smthg. so i didnt want to put my friends and danger.

then i just ran in and tackled to of them to the ground and started going berserk. aparently i could free the girl from the guys but she was so shocked that she just couldnt get up and/or run away.

the second when the 4 guys got up and surrounded now the two of us was the second when i though "oh [censored]". (i laugh now thinking back, since i am still alive.... but then.. :S)

i just thought that i would have to attack them and not letting them attack me (i would stand no chance if 2 would grap me and 2 would hold me)

aparently i grapped the biggest guy and started head butting him and giving him some nice low kicks (i rly thanked my muay thai teacher 2day) and keeping my hands up all the time for defense.

aperently my "wild" and "aggressive" behaivour stunned the other guys and say saw how quick and accurate i was elbowing and punching and kicking around me. this probably saved me.

my friends came just a moment later (even though i didnt tell them but okay.. iw ould do the same for them) and fell over the other 3. we didnt beat them up anymore. jsut made sure they had no knives or anything with them. there is no need to beat them up if we are 25 ppl and they 4.

the police arrived a few minutes later (always late... t.t)

the girl is okay. but the has a scar now in her face. she´ll also get some psychological assistance now.

the boy slapping her (the ones face i cracked) was apreently her ex-bf. she quitted on him and he couldnt deal with it. him and his friends waited for her in front of her house and he asked her to be with him again. she said no and this was his reactions. come on ppl... what the F***?!?!?!

i am mostly fine. my body and my face have some blueish/black spots and my jaw hurts like hell (i took a few punches). but i am okay.

its weird that we´re living in the year 2008 and sh1t like this still happens..

i just hope the girl get well soon.

the boys now have to deal with the curt..
