Funny, this doesn't make me feel any safer...

Miami ees now a how-joo-say? "Republic of Bananas".

The new police plan to fight terror in Miami is this: Stroll up to random locations, surround the place, go in with weapons drawn, and demand to see identification. Then leaflets will be distrbuted.
Police are planning "in-your-face" shows of force in public places, saying the random, high-profile security operations will keep terrorists guessing about where officers might be next... "People are definitely going to notice it," [Deputy Police Chief Frank Fernandez] said. "We want that shock. We want that awe.
In your face? Show of force? Shock and Awe? Homeland Security? Can't they even pretend to be serious people via the use of less laughable words? I mean, what's next? People in long, flowing, raincoats walking up and down the streets sneering "Papers Please!"
