I live in FL, South Beach to be exact... It is very nice here most people you see on the streets are going to be tourists but there are a good amount
of locals here... We have like 5 big hostels so lots of foreign people come here for vacations.
The cops here are up and down some of them are great I go to this chicken place a couple times a week that is amazing its across from the miami ink
tattoo place... Usually these 2 cops are in there it seems every time I go there lol they are nice to everyone I talk to them sometimes, there were 2
tourists from france sitting at the table next to us and the cops next to them the other week. One cop knew french and was talking to them and the
other one talked to them because they knew some english and they were asking about things and they told them to check out the beach for sure and the
cop asked them if they ever tried a cuban coffee they said no so the cop got them each a coffee to try and they loved it...
The other end of that is recently 2 cops were arrested because they were drunk and joyriding while on the job with their 4-wheeler and ran over a
couple of people on the beach and one of the people almost died and is still in the hospital...
Some cops are just jerks thats why they become cops so they can have power over people because they were losers growing up and people made fun of them
or whatever stupid reason. There is no getting around this and that is pretty much everywhere...
You will see allot of cops driving around and on bikes here patrolling I do not see this as a problem we have a decently low crime rate and you don't
have to worry when drunks are around looking for a fight because there will usually be a cop close by to help you out.
Most microwave food here I think tastes great... Now that doesn't mean its good for you in any way lol I really prefer some good real food like
seafood or italian food, I go to this great italian place down the road and their food is all fresh made and its amazing and its not that expensive
and they are all real italians and hardly speak english lol
Most people are nice here and I have lived all around the USA and everywhere I have been for the most part everyone is nice, when I was in NYC I ran
into a few not so nice people and everyone is in such a hurry I doubt they would want to stop and have a conversation with you. In Miami beach
especially if you aren't from here and you tried to just talk to someone most likely you will get some good information if thats what you are looking
for or a good conversation.
There are allot of homeless people here which is sad and they will ask you for money like non-stop I always feel bad because I usually really don't
have money to give them but I do when I can. Later at night when everything is closed is when I work at the club and when I walk home from work you
see them sleeping pretty much anywhere from door ways to the bus stop I have seen allot of them that are in wheelchairs missing legs or other things
and I can't even imagine how hard their life is
Most restaurants will leave any food they have at the end of the night that cant' be reused or
would be thrown away in containers in front of their doors for homeless people and the church lets you sleep under their awning so if its raining you
wont get wet. They also do other things around town to try to help homeless people giving them food and stuff.
I think that over all america is a great place to live, it is the very few that are trying to ruin it for everyone else. I wish the rather then being
a country run by warlords and fearmongers we could put all that money/time/energy into making the world a better place to live.
I have friends in Norway and I have always wanted to go there but its expensive to get there, I have watched shows about it and it looks like a really
nice place I am surprised that people there dont talk to strangers and stuff it seems like everyone would be pretty open there compared to here. I
really want to go to amsterdam though with my Girl and get really high off some amazing drugs
and maybe visit the red light district so we can have
some fun... If only the US was more like amsterdam
Oh yah and for the drunk law thing I personally like the law but I have been drunk as HELL plenty of times walking home and never had an issue... what
will get you an issue being drunk is yelling, peeing in public, harassing someone, basically being a drunk douchebag will get you arrested for drunk
and disorderly. I myself have never had an issue but cops will wait outside of clubs/bars and follow people they believe are drunk which is what they
should do and arrested them for drunk driving which they should do. There is no excuse for drunk driving
