Peck for Justice
There was a bit of levity outside the courthouse, however, something that could only happen in Miami. At around 2 p.m., on a postage-stamp-sized patch of grass, a plump, white rooster with a red crest happily snacked on bread crumbs as suited-up lawyers and thug-looking defendants paraded by.
"It's a fat one," remarked a woman in Spanish. "Good for soup!" She then tossed him part of an arepa.
The white rooster eventually crossed the street and foraged under a bush, with two other handsome, green roosters. Courthouse veterans say the roosters are frequent visitors to the justice building's entrance. --Tamara Lush
