Do I feel bad for the city of Miami? No. All they did was brag about how open their city was while rubbing it in everyone's face. You see people posting on social media and it looks like Miami never missed a beat.
Now that college students want to flock down to South Beach to enjoy their spring break there's a problem? To be honest, these are the types of videos we've been seeing from Miami all pandemic long!
Not only are the officials of Miami pissed, Miami police arrested 100 people due to spring break gatherings.
According to the article, Miami Police used pepper spray to break up a big spring break gathering. Unfortunately, two police officers were injured and taken to the hospital during the process.
The Mayor of Miami, Dan Gelber, told CNN, "We're seeing too much spring break activity," While also adding "We've got a problem with too many people coming here, we've got a problem with too many people coming here to let loose."
Like I mentioned earlier, when people have been partying in Miami all pandemic long, it's hard to blame college students flying down to enjoy their spring break. When you have a bunch of young people with loose COVID restrictions, it's probably not going to end well. Most of the issues are mainly from not wearing masks and over-crowding beaches. In Florida, they don't let local jurisdictions fine people for not wearing their masks.
Miami did this to themselves. Although they have some COVID restrictions, it's very loose compared to the rest of the country. If you give anyone a little bit of normalcy, they're going to go crazy with it.
