Hackers Target Local Governments, Miami Beach Police Chief Retires & 'Latin History For Morons'

Miami Beach Police Chief Daniel Oates.

Three Florida cities - Lake City, Riviera Beach and most recently Key Biscayne - have been targeted by hackers in the last month. All were held hostage by hackers for large amounts of money. Sundial spoke with Rob Wile of the Miami Herald to discuss his reporting on the hacking in Key Biscayne, Director of the Cybersecurity Center of the Americas at Miami Dade College Jorge Ortega and Palm Beach Post staff writer Tony Doris on the hacking in Riviera Beach.


Miami Beach Police Chief Daniel Oates is retiring after five years with the Miami Beach Police Department. He will soon start a part-time position in Baltimore working with the Justice Department on advising the police department in a federal-city partnership. Sundial spoke with Oates about his legacy as police chief for Miami Beach and the challenges ahead for his successor. 

The Latin History for Morons tour will play three shows at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami starting July 12. Actor John Leguizamo has been a comic force for decades, as well as a social advocate and is the lead star in the show. He has also directed "Critical Thinking," a new film about a high school chess team in Miami that won the national championship. Sundial spoke with Leguizamo about the tour, his new film and his career in comedy.
