    Shouldn't he be in prison? In Miami that's how it goes.

  2. Mr. Camner, I am James from Miami currently in Fort Lauderdale. I have been gone from Miami many years and back just now and I find that Xavier Suarez was elected as a Miami-Dade Commissioner District 7. I knew Mayor Xavier Suarez. Just a question. Would you like to tell me why you would make this post? Really. I am not disputing you. I am only asking why?
