Curfew comes to 'sleepy' Miami Lakes after near riot on Christmas night

-Video from martinezarie

Kudos to the Miami Herald's David Smiley and Christina Veiga for their after action report on a near-riot that occurred Christmas night in Miami Lakes.
Thousands of screaming teenagers running through a shopping center.

A movie theater manager who says her employees were attacked by a mob.

And a high school junior who is recovering from a gunshot to the chest. This was a Christmas to remember in Miami Lakes, though one town officials would like to forget.

In the wake of a chaotic Dec. 25 melee and shooting that caused police to declare a “countywide emergency” in the sleepy suburb off the Palmetto Expressway, town officials vowed to step up police presence at the outdoor Main Street mall, promising to enforce an 8 p.m. curfew and round up unaccompanied minors starting Friday.
As far as I can tell, not one of Miami's TV news outlets reported on this when it happened. But, since the curfew goes into effect tomorrow night, expect lots of coverage at 10pm on 7News and the rest of Miami's TV news corps! Guaranteed.
