Moving Back to Jamaica

A blog about my Move Back to Jamaica after 20+ years of living in the US. Most of the articles focus on the period from 2005-2009 when the transition was new, and at it's most challenging.

Glad to Be Away from Broward County

The following article caught my eye.

Apparently, the US Federal Govenment has been stopping random motorists on Rte 441/7 in broward to check for Socai lSecurity numbers.

Failure to provide a number apparently was cause enough to be arrested with being read Miranda rights, and incarcerated at Krome Detention Center in Miami.

I am quite glad to have left that environment behind.

Ok, that story was more than a little disturbing. But somehow not too surprising - US law enforcement seems to prefer overkill to focused tactics.
