      It really goes to show the real lack of compassion and hatred that exists here inSouth Florida. I can’t wait to retire and LEAVE this LOUSY, RACIST place!! To those who hate us Cubans, we hate you one hundred times back!!

      What a bunch of schmucks! People what goes around comes around!! ENOUGH OF THE HATE!!

  • Maggie Joseph

    yea mimi, someone wrote yea just another cuban, that should have been bombed a long time ago, and so i just had to say something.

    at some point, legislators will make it a point to institute a law that makes it illegal to text and/ or use a handheld cell phone while driving and make it a manslaughter or 1st degree murder charge. A little common courtesy probably would have saved this cyclists life. The drivers get a second chance, the cyclists get a funeral. Unbelievably stupid.

  • Greg Henderson

    may not have been the driver’s fault at all. i have observed flagrant disregard for the law by many cyclists—breezing through red lights, stop signs etc…

    Where did someone say “Cuban”? Florida is not bicycle-friendly, and that’s a busy intersection; in addition, 6 a.m. is quite dark. Add the usual driver distractions and you have a recipe for a tragedy. My condolences to this man’s family.
