Whatever happened to those pesky maquinitas in the City of Miami?



Everyone remember those maquinitas that created such a fuss over at the City of Miami?  Who could have forgotten those illegal gaming machines that were at the center of the war between the City's mayor, Tomas Regaladoo and it's police chief, Miguel Exposito which ultimately lead to his firing by the City Commission.  Many allege that these gaming machines which the city claims are for "amusement purposes only" are nothing more than quasi legal gambling machines whose owners provide cash payouts once in a blue moon to the poor schmucks that empty their pockets into them as evidenced by this video from the Miami New Times...

We're going to talk about these machines that litter our city and the ongoing legal war regarding these machines over the next few days, in the mean time, check out these photos...





No big deal, just a couple of guys in the city of Miami unloading some gaming machines aka "maquinitas" from the back of a trailer...





Now, here are the same folks repairing those same machines they were unloading earlier and now the best part, they're doing all of this in front of one of these guys...



LOL!  All this going on right in plain view and in front of a City of Miami cop no less!  Back during the Chief Exposito's administration, cops were going after these machines and their owners now it seems like under the currents chief's reign, the owners and operators of these machines operate with relative impunity!


More tomorrow...

  1. Dont forget the Blind eyes of the City of Miami's Fire Department...Chief Pedro Gomez and Chief Zalraban provide a 'safe location' while the machines are in transition. Ah and we wonder how Chief Arthur got her pension!
