Lol those wacky and fun loving Miami Cuban politicos and officials, they don't need "no stinking" permits.
Permits are just for people who believe in what USA stands for and play by the rules .

I wonder how safe these structures are?
Ay caramba ,lol.

"Building permit? Miami-Dade County doesn't need any stinkin' building permit!

In fact, officials for the county's internal services department got away with completing two construction projects in downtown Miami without obtaining permits for either one, according to Miami-Dade Inspector General Chris Mazzella.

"The Office of the Inspector General finds this matter troubling," Mazzella wrote in a Dec. 19 report to Mayor Carlos Gimenez. "The OIG is concerned that a pattern of building code violations appears to be emerging and should, herefore, be addressed

AY CARAMBA this sounds unsafe.

"Because neither project had a building permit, there were no electrical, plumbing, and mechanical inspections performed; a requirement for anyone building new construction. "

Hey true story here! Once I was out for a walk with my wife and son at night after dinner. As we were walking in the neighborhood we walked be two people standing in front of a house being renovated under constructions. As we are walking by I say ''buenas noches'' like a normal person should, and this one old guy wearing a suit with his Miami-Dade Representative ID hanging around his neck actually tells me in a threatening manner ''que? estas caminando? sige caminando!'' Then I was like what?''Tu te creas mafioso o eres representante del condado? O eres come mierda? Quieres ver como me quedo aqui mismo? Que pasa estas haciendo algo indebido?'' The more I think about it, I should have read his name on the ID and reported him, or called the cops to throw monkey wrench into what ever he was skeeming.

There is a Cuban AMERICAN who comes to this forum, his grandfather retired from Miami construction co as supervisor ,he over-saw MANY city jobs and he told my friend that the NY MAFIA steals less than most Miami Cuban politicians, commissioners, officials .

He met guys who at one time worked in NY and Chicago construction and they said that the MAFIA had NOTHING on the Miami Cuban bunch.

" The more I think about it, I should have read his name on the ID and reported him, or called the cops to throw monkey wrench into what ever he was skeeming"

If it was Hialeah than chances are they too were part of it.

That is total BS, not only the Mafia is way more corrupt but the cops in NYC where known for the most corrupted cops in U.S. history and forget about the politicians in NYC and Chicago, Pluuueeesssseeee, thier the kings of corruption, you don't know jack shit what you are saying, and I see you go by false BS written by writers who tend lean in favor of bashing Miami, don't you know Miami has been hated and envied by many outsiders because of how Miami one of the best if not the most liked city to vacation and live by many. It's like saying how most of the NBA fans hate the Miami Heat, I wonder whyyyyyyyyy!

Mornm no one gives a flying phck about basketball this has nothing to do with Miami heat but of the perpetual Miami Cuban ZERO political and ZERO police standards.

This is ANOTHER fine example, you zero standards brainless Miami dck.

"Miami-Dade Police green fund under investigation"

In the name of protecting the environment, the green fund has been used to purchase cars for top commanders, high-tech surveillance equipment, DirecTV subscriptions, iPhones, office furniture, boats and pricey laptop computers.

A large chunk of expenditures from the green fund has gone toward cars and fuel, according to documents reviewed by The Miami Herald. That includes the purchase of at least 10 SUVs in 2007 and 2009 that were given to top police commanders

A new surveillance van cost $233,000. Spending on personal computers and equipment for PCs topped $450,000. Three flat-screen TVs were purchased using money from the trust fund, according to a source with knowledge of the fund.

"The NY MAFIA steals less than most Miami Cuban politicians?"

And they would run it better because they sure as hell could not run it worse.It is already the WORSE run ,lol. Cuba libre MF , Cuba libre indeed.

"Miami Named Worst-Run City in America, Hialeah is Tenth"

Congratulations Miami-Dade County! We're home to not one, but two of the ten worst-run cities in the entire United States of America. The City of Miami came first on 24/7 Wall Street's list. That would be bad enough, but citizens of Miami proper may be even more devastated ;to find that their city is explicitly worse-run than Hialeah. The City of Progress came in 10th on the list.

Chica como un Cubano AMERICANO tu y tu junta son lo que yo llamo "Miami" Cubanos.
Mucha cuba libre ,pfffft.

"The Cuban community that doesn’t care about corruption when it casts its vote was critically portrayed by most leading city columnists and others, Cuban and otherwise. Robert Steinback, a Black Miami Herald columnist, said the Cuban community is gullible. Liz Balmaseda calls it “a knee-jerk majority” that would elect a hamster wearing a Cuba Libre T-shirt, and,“They only cared that he was Cuban.”

Those like toobad, FOOO, Peste and the 10,000 other names he uses think anyone who dare speak out about the STAGGERING Miami Cuban political corruption, ZERO police standards is an agent of Castro.

They were the problem in Cuba and STILL the problem in Miami.

Corruption up the Miami culo but aslong as it is from Cubans, they are fine with it.

I'm just here until I'm not, soon I'll be in my quite gringo town in the middle of nobody's business. Cuban mafia NY mafia it's all the same, I'd shoot either one. Miami was somebody's envy a long time ago, I was born here, but sure as hell not any more. And it is cuban-American, I was born here, I live here, the cuban part is irrelavant and lucky I even mention it. Had it been different and I would have been over there Cuba would have been lucky to have me. I would have died a good death.

I was born in Cuba and we came to USA when I was 2 yrs old (Mariel)and after 2 weeks nos fuemos a NY .

I find the Cuban politicians here the worse, there are some rare honest and efficient exceptions like Mayor Bermudez from Doral ,who I call a Cuban American not some flunky self serving, corrupt Miami Cuban politico like the vast majority in Cuban run "cities".

"I would have died a good death"

No ,it is a disaster there and no one dies a good death, the sad irony is that after the self serving and corrupt Castro mierda is gone , they will be replaced with self serving and corrupt Miami mierda .

The expression ''I would have died a good death'' meant had I been born over there, I would have surely been killed or jailed for acts sabotage and counter revolution.

Well, you may have destroyed an office or piece of equipment but you would never have gotten near any of the Castro brothers.

"I would have surely been killed or jailed for acts sabotage and counter revolution"

I think death would be better but again to remove the Castro's only to replace them with self serving, corrupt Miami mierda is no win.

Imagine Hialeah without the fed gvmt .
