Miami Beach declares a state of emergency and curfew as spring break crowds spark safety concerns

Source: CNN

Miami Beach Police fired pepper balls into crowds of partiers and arrested at least a dozen people as the city took extraordinary measures to crack down on spring breakers who officials have said are out of control.

Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber declared a state of emergency and set an 8 p.m. curfew Saturday, saying the crowds that have descended on the city recently are "more than we can handle."

"Too many are coming, really, without the intention of following the rules, and the result has been a level of chaos and disorder that is just something more than we can endure," Gelber told CNN's Ana Cabrera.

Police in Miami Beach said early Sunday that they arrested "at least a dozen" people following the start of the curfew.

3. Get the Gov On This STAT!

Maybe he can calm down those unruly authoritarians and let the partiers exercise their rights properly.

What's a good hoax virus for if not sharing?

No social distancing whatsoever.

5. I Talked With A Friend That Lives In The Miami Area And He Said That....

a lot of the people that showed up in Miami weren't spring breaker college kids from around the country - but they are actually residents of Miami and surrounding areas that just came down to raise hell.

Any truth to that?

6. I've never heard Miami being a spring break destination so perhaps your friend

is correct. If this was Datona, FT Lauderdale, Iíd say itís spring breakers.

10. The reason it's spring breakers this year is that Mar has been too cool in mid state FL this year,

and so spring breaker populations have headed further south.

But yeah, usually you'd be correct. But this year is different.

14. You are so right!

Iím literally freezing in Orlando area. I have a sweat shirt on. Only 55 degrees. I hate that. I moved from Maryland to get out of the cold.

18. And I'm over on the Sarasota-Tampa west coast where it's freezing, too. This March is so unlike

March of all the 13 years I've been coming down here. It could be the new normal in climate caused season changes. It's hard to tell when it's new, though.

13. As a generalization,

white spring breakers go to Ft Lauderdale and black partiers to Miami Beach. Again, that's a generalization.

15. Based on the violence and other shitty behavior, I'd say that's right.

Sounds less like college students and more like college-age troublemakers.

7. Meanwhile DeathSantis is taking a victory lap

due to some idiots in the media praising him. See Politico's article on How Ron DeSantis won the pandemic.

No one bothering to do the research about how he hid the true numbers by excluding non-residents. Why aren't people up in arms about this? Oh, they only have time to attack Cuomo..

Toothpaste, tube.
Horse, barn door.
Pandora's Box.
Etc.

17. The curfews have nothing to do with COVID and everything to do with the behavior of the visitors.
