It was May 30th, 2011. Memorial Day. At 4 a.m. a crowd remained along famed Collins Avenue on Miami Beach, the last day of an Urban Beach weekend that brought hundreds of thousands of visitors to town. A small car drove South on Collins, in the wrong lane. It swerved, side-swiping some other vehicles along the way. As the car approached 14th street, police officers opened fire.
