Police in Miami Beach Break Up Spring Breakers

There is an enormous pent up demand for freedom.

Spring breakers invading Miami Beach have become so uncontrollable that authorities imposed a curfew on Saturday and declared a state of emergency as SWAT teams were seen moving in to clear people out.


A SWAT vehicle was filmed moving down Ocean Drive – a popular party street – and using an LRAD, also known as a sound cannon, to get people to disperse, video posted to Twitter shows.


The move to control the crowds followed weeks of wild partying in Miami Beach, which is no stranger to uncontrollable spring break throngs of young people.




The crowds of young people crushing the beach city have sparked worries of a coronavirus ‘super-spreader’ event, while alcohol-fueled partiers have been starting fights in restaurants and in the streets, officials said.




Franco said in a live video that the crowd breaking appears to be a multi-agency effort, with helicopters from Miami-Dade police, a SWAT vehicle from Coral Gables and officers from other agencies.


In another video posted Twitter, a man wearing Joker makeup waves an American flag while standing on top of a car screaming ‘COVID is over baby’ and throwing money into the air.


Later in the night, Ocean Drive was seen nearly empty after cops made everyone disperse and photos posted by Miami Beach police show street sweepers cleaning leftover debris.

    Put in a 8pm curfew in Miami Beach during Spring Break was not the smartest thing to do.
    And guess, what, no one will most likely get sick and/or die, with or without the curfew.
    Just more liberal government tyranny and nonsense.

    Of course, this is a Democrat Karen mayor.
    I don’t think the rest of Florida is like this Karen.

    Mar, you should look at the videos. This was a riot, complete with property destruction, street fights, injuries……..

    And of course, NOW the Mayor is being called a raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayciss for shutting it down.

    I’m curious to see data from the booking sheets. Two things stuck out to me when seeing the pictures.

    1) A LOT of the people look older than your average college kid. Late 20s, 30s, and even 40s. They didn’t appear to be “spring breakers.” Are they people from the local area?

    2) A lot of the dudes on the beach were in speedos. That is not traditional swimwear for the average American college kid, but is for folks from Europe or South America. How many of the folks are from other countries?

    I’d love to see the booking reports to see age and home city.

    Those pictures look nothing like years past. Where are all of the drunken white kids spending daddy’s money?
