Memorial Day “Festivities”

Some headlines from Memorial Day weekend; news reports from across the country cite “Youths” behind a waive of rioting and crime, posted YouTube videos present a less vague demographic…

MIAMI:
According to Miami Beach Police, during the 2011 Memorial Day “Urban Weekend” in South Beach there were 431 total arrests, 66 felonies and 365 misdemeanors.  There were 1,298 citations and 3,221 calls for service.  Amazingly, occurrences like this do not take place when other events such as Art Festivals, Film Festivals, Art Basel, Fashion Week, Winter Music Conference, etc. come to town.

MYRTLE BEACH:
Myrtle Beach police received reports of five armed robberies, a stabbing, a shooting and an incident involving a shotgun being pointed at a security guard during a nearly eight-hour period in the city early Sunday and Monday.
