I've been watching the action from several different discussions. Cops getting violent for no apparent reason. APCs are on the move. Gas, rubber bullets and firehoses have already been used. Dozens seriously injured. Downtown effectively shut down. Undercover cops violently arresting people without provocation. Unconfirmed rumors of Army personnel in the area. Welcome to the Police State, a la Jeb style.

"Parts of downtown Miami resembled a police state. Checkpoints with armed officers blocked pedestrians without proper credentials on several streets. Squad cars were on almost every block. Troopers searched vehicles before they could move on."

www.msnbc.com...

"Report from the street that there have been small groups of provocateurs trying to blend into the crowd and attempting to provoke protesters into doing things that will get them quickly arrested. Person who reported this said that reporters have video footage proof."

Well yesterday was the peak of the protests. This morning there were small pieces done on msnbc about what will happen today.

I'm glad it wasn't like Seatle with those "anarchists"/"masked thugs" that were the real threat.

There was peaceful protests here in Miami though..I'm glad for that.

Well this Michael Jackson stuff is more hot than WTO talks in Miami.. I know on MSNBC during the day when classes were canceled they talked about it off and on..only when things got hot, but of course the local news will always be on top of it.

and its not just some WTO talks in miami...its was full out riots that shut down the city...

heh. I realise what happened here. I never said they were "just" WTO talks.. the fact is the downtown area recieved a warning about the protests like a couple weeks in advance, and that riot police were in place since starting from last week, so in reality it isn't the newest news story. I believe its only the downtown area of miami.. being biscane that runs by port of miami, american airlines theatre, and bay front park, 4th ST downtown, 5th st downtown, and possible some streets more south, but not the whole city.

Oh and 2nd street that runs along the court house and the campus as well.

Sir...you are absolutely on target! Our priorities are all messed up, and I have to further agree, its all about control of the media, the people will only hear what the government wants them to. Enough of Michael Jackson and more of what is really needed in the media!

rubs hands together

now you guys are on to something. So lets start figuring out why our government told news agencies to cover more of the Michael Jackson story than the WTO meeting in Miami, FL. Lets start for motive why.. so why?

"We're police officers; We're not trained to handle this kind of violence"

MrRadicalEd, I have not established a viewpoint in that regard, but it's obvious that the information delivered by the media is the result of selective programming. Just imagine seeing the whole story of every story...Oh my, ignorance is bliss.

Lets start for motive why..

I don't see any "programming". Maybe its because I actually live in Miami, and had to deal with it for almost o whole three weeks, or its just that I don't believe in that conspiracy theory.

I can understand why the people protest though. People get paid poorly, loose benifets, and even lose jobs. You have angry people that are more violent than others.. you have riots.. while not wide scale, they are there, but its all simmering down now, and I will get back to my classes next week it seems


sirCyco, no dude, I can't. I really don't see why I should know about why or How the US government is telling US news agencies to not report on these sporadic riots because of the World Trade Organization talks. I'm just not the member to that conspiracy club

I live in the midwest and if it was not for this website i would know almost nothing about whats going on in miami!!! but of coarse i know exactly whats going on with micheal jackson... every channel covers this important part of history..

Perhaps, and I know I can be wrong, but maybe that the new agencies themselves find that Michael Jackson makes a better story than sporadic riots and protestors in Miami

If you're so upset about not getting news coverage on the World Trade Organization talks in Miami you should call up your local news channel and ask why there was no coverage..
