Miami Herald: Any Proof Readers Around Anymore? And I Was in the Traffic Yesterday. By Geniusofdespair

Oops my head shadow got in JED Bush's article
You might think that they corrected the JED mistake in the on line version. You would be wrong about that.

I get it two men shot each other on I 95. I don't care. It needs an investigation, yes but not to impact thousands of people trying to get to work. The news said it was only closed between 79th Street and 95 Street. But the entire road was closed at about 2pm at 103rd Street South. I, being a brilliant traffic avoider, didn't get I 95 South after noon at 135 Street, I knew there was something amiss. I instead opted for 441. On 441 you can see I95 as you go South. Now 441 was no picnic, it took me over an hour and a half to get to 103rd Street. I couldn't take it anymore. I got off 441 there to travel back North on I 95. The traffic was a solid clusterfuck. I cannot believe they were letting people on at 135 Street when THEY KNEW that the road was closed ahead. I tried to take a video but I was driving so you have no video from me.  On channel 6.

My question is why? Why would they close a road from 4 am to 2:30 pm? People were completely blocked on I95 for hours. It was not moving. People were out of their cars on the highway. And the reports are wrong. They had 103rd Street blocked off going South. I tried to get on there when I passed it. I looked at 95 as I was directed past, and it was entirely empty at 2pm going South way way past the murders. Why couldn't I get on??? People missed work. Come on. You didn't have to close the whole road for 10 hours. If the police are that slow there is something is wrong with them. The investigation should have been over by rush hour at 8 am.

Tell us your story. I hope you don't have a prostate problem. My spouse took 1 hour to go about 60 blocks on US 1 at 10:30 am.

Unless they were looking for shell casings the road should have been cleared in a few hours. The entire car could have been towed to the crime lab with the body inside. 10 hours of overtime Christmas pay for every officer called on scene.

One of the deceased was "a construction worker and father of two girls...." I guess he didn't have any work on Monday as he was out cruising around at 4AM.

I believe the comment about "overtime pay". Makes perfect sense.

You don't know what they were looking for... so stop being asses. You don't know where the crime scene began or ended, nor do you know if they were looking for something that may have linked the I-95 scene to one elsewhere.

The police officers had a reason for being out there. They don't want to take crap from the public for overtime accusations. It isn't worth it. And the idea of spending the day in the heat on hot asphalt, knowing that there are zillions of pissed motorists glaring at you, isn't worth the overtime.

Sorry if everyone's day was out of whack and inconvenienced, but if I get murdered on I-95, I hope some police agency gives a crap and does the investigation in spite of the armchair quarterbacks!

that is nothing. Back in Aug.state troopers shut down I-75 just north of Ocala in both directions, the northbound being closed for over TWELVE HOURS. This was for a manhunt for someone who took a shot at a trooper from the woods. It was a disaster area for those stuck in traffic backed up 20 miles that did not move AT ALL. People with horse trailers in the 98 degree heat had to let out their horses to not die, cars broke down, emergency vehicles had to be called for people sticken from the heat, military equipment, helicopters, all available law enforcement in the area converged.... it was a true disaster area.
