Unbelievable! Why bother ruling against the Seminoles if they have no intention of enforcing it? Same thing with their illegal casino. We need to go back and fix the flaws in the federal indian policy. Get rid of the this sovereign immunity bs.

i think we should take the seminoles and stick them on a reservation in the middle of the everglades, whenre they belong. and have the army guard them . especially the crooked chiefs, who are nothing but legal thieves. hiding behind the feds.

Why dosen't the legal lessee just take control of the property at gunpoint? That is what the slimy indians did last year AGAINST the contract they agreed to years ago.

Boycott their casinos, hotel and restaurants. Nothing that happens on that site is good for our area. Their police dept is as corrupt as the entire indian nation.

This is a large piece of land that brings in, what would be a lot of money to you or me, but evidently not enough to satisfy the gluttonous appetite of the Seminoles.
I'm sure they have plans for that land and damned be the law or anyone that's inconvenienced or displaced.

Mr. Holland, you might need to check a few things. I'm not sure if you or some headline writer is responsible for the caption under the picture lead to the story. This seizure and take over was not done by "the Hollywood police in Hollywood." This action was done by the Seminole Indian Police Department operating out of their office on the Seminole Indian Reservation which abuts the City of Hollywood's property. Although the mobile home park uses Hollywood addresses it is not in the corporate limits of the City of Hollywood. It is on the property of the Seminole tribe. It only uses Hollywood addresses for the Post Office for mail delivery.

What seems to more intriguing Mr. Holland, is why this took place after the former police chief and assistant police chief were forced to leave. Is it because tribal leaders don't like to be told "No" when they want to do something that may be illegal? Amazing that this did not take place until after they hired a lapdog as their new chief?

And this is why I don't go to the Seminole Hard Rock. All the money that goes into SHR disappears from the local economy, and they're not good neighbors.

Or had anyone else noticed the area around the seminoles is blighted and turning into slums?

Hartman and Tyner also own the Hollywood Greyhound Track now known as Mardi Gras Casino. Have to think that this is all somehow connected to the gambling turf war in which the Tribe and the local tracks are engaged--with Hartman and Tyner's boy Danny Adkins being the main spokesperson for the tracks.

All the Indians want is more land for a new casino and parking. They have the Hard Rock side, now it is on their radar to develop the other end. It is that simple. The land is too valuable to the Indians for its current use as a trailer park.

Better yet, move those injuns back into the swamp. Unfortunately for them, they're too fat and alcoholic to fend for themselves now.

Remember Stirling Rd. Mobile Home Park in Davie? On the north side of Stirling Rd near the Tpke, just opposite the Tribe's office building?
The Seminole Tribe of FL bought this non-native land. They evicted 65 families without following FL statute 723 for Mobile Home Park displacement and closure. The Seminole Tribe of FL lefrt 65 families homeless. They totally disregarded and refused to answer to the Town of Davie or the State of FL.

Remember Candlelight Park Mobile Home Park on SR7/441 which was reservation land? They evicted all the mobile home residents and constructed the Hard Rock.

What is most interesting...The Seminole Tribe of FL was "given" the land in the Everglades off of Alligator Alley as their land.

Because they couldn't make a living there and the uninhabitable conditions at the time, they were allowed to use the Hollywood Land via a perpetual lease. They do not own the land in Hollywood. Go to Nova Law Library and read the documents.
It is a "Perpetual Land Trust", not deeded to them like other reservation land by the Federal Govt.

The Federal Government completely controls the Hollywod land and its uses, not the Seminole Tribe of FL.

Few people know this.

And, remember at the announcement of the acquisition of the Hard Rock Intl. by the Seminole Tribe of FL in Times Square, Manhattan, Tribal Leader Max Osceola stated.
"They took Manhattan from our ancestors for trinkets, now we are going to take it back one hamburger at a time".
Wake up America, it's one life and one family at a time. Like Anna Nicole Smith, like all the displaced families from the Mobile Home Parks, like all the deaths which have mysteriously occurred on their Hollywood Hard Rock property, like all the alcohol related fatalities, like all the rapes which occur there, like all families ruined by gambling addiction and drug addiction there.

Throughout human civilization every group has had atrocities, holocausts,
slavery, some form of discrimination on this earth.

What other group is there that gets reparations and entitlements in perpetuity, and treaties, beside the Native Americans?

If you can think of one, please publish it.

Just because the Seminole Tribe of FL accidently was in the swamp and accidently didn't sign a peace treaty with the US, doesn't mean they are immune to capitulating to laws and other statutes in the State of FL, other states and the US.
It's time to wake up and smell the
"Hamburgers"...or the lives and families and surrounding communities affected by this arrogance and ignorance of the law by the Seminole
Tribe of FL.

"Cowkeeper is rolling over in his grave at the arrogance of the Seminole Tribal Leaders"...

This sad truth is that this is happening in neighborhoods all over America....The indians have become untouchable. A court ruling means nothing if it's not enforced. Even though sovereign governments aren't allowed to make campaign donations, the indians are. In fact, they have spent more on elections than any other interest group in the history the U.S.A. Every other for profit enterprise except for the indians, of coarse, are limited to the amount they can donate. These unlimited donations allow the indians to do what they want and when they want.

I don't know where you people get your facts. The Seminoles have occupied these swamp ridden pieces of land since the early 1800's and do not have a treaty with the US to enforce. If they don't want you on there land they can kick you out, and there is nothing that you would be able to do about it. On the other hand they are a trading partner with the State of Florida and it is the interest of both to coexist.

I still remember an incident when I was a kid where the Seminole Tribe was upset with the State of Florida and treated to close US441/ State Road 7 (which is also known as Seminole Drive) and the Florida Turnpike that run right through their territory. As History goes the waters calmed and nothing happened, but the treat was real enough that my parents laid out routes to go around if it went down.

Try to remember the next time you drive onto their territory that you are a guest of The Seminole Tribe and you are no longer in the United States. Think of it as if you are in the Caribbean. You are a guest. Donít try to tell them what to do.

Obviously "Wrong Again" is wrong again.
Didn't bother to read the post by "Linda", huh?
As she advised, go to the Nova Law Library and read the facts for yourself.
Too much trouble? Then change your name to, "Wrong As Usual".

My parents live in Hollywood Estates. They moved from NY 3 years ago and spent $100,000 on a manufactured home. When they received the news, they inquired re: prices to move their home. The latest quote was $56,000! It's unbelievable, the amount of stress this is causing. They are an ederly retired couple on a fixed income. There has to be some recourse.
