Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Still no new news or facts in Hallandale Beach re January's double-murder of Toronto couple in Venetian Park neighborhood; Important Three Islands neighborhood public meeting tonight at 7 p.m.

* Important Three Islands community meeting tonight at 7 p.m.at the Anchor Bay condo at 300 Three Islands Blvd., located adjacent to the Three Islands south security gate. Park in guest parking.

Besides the two recent unsolved murders in Venetian Park -see below- and the increase in break-ins and robberies in the area, there's likely to be more than a little discussion and gnashing of teeth by HB residents who are VERY frustrated with the city's laughably insufficient policing policies in the area, which makes it likely that this'll be one of the few public meetings this year where HB City Hall does not have 'plants' at the location to kiss their butts and say what a great job everyone is doing.

Everyone at HB City Hall is NOT doing a great job, and that includes the HB Police Dept.

Almost everyone I speak to in this city, but esp, who those who live in NE and the Venetian Park neighborhood in particular have watched with dismay as whatever visible Police presence the TISND is paying for that's assigned to the area near Scavo Park, seems to spend all or most of their time doing paperwork, NOT actually observing what's going on and interacting with citizens.

It's sort of hard to interact when the assigned off-duty police car that the Three Islands Safe Neighborhood District is paying for always seems to have their tinted windows up  -and the A/C is on.

Everyone I know in the area believes this to be the case because they've personally watched it so many times, for so very long.
And so have I.
It's become the defacto default position for the police.

I plan on being at the meeting tonight.

Me in the Summer of 2016
Above, me in June, pre-recent haircut, near acres and acres of orange groves off Scenic U.S. #17 in Frostproof, FL, while visiting hot/humid Central Florida, which I'm convinced is where heat/humidity goes in the Summer to get away from it all... The oppressive heat & humidity there is literally everywhere you go. :-(
