Memorial Day

Unfortunate Miami Beach residents who didn’t escape their homes this past holiday weekend were subjected to dangerous and unacceptable behavior from hip-hoppers in our city.

It is beyond any understanding why our elected officials continue to annually schedule this event. Local stores and restaurants prefer to close during these three days.

Countless locals make a concerted effort to safely enjoy Memorial Day out of town.

This is no way to honor our fallen soldiers.

Our commissioners need to stop talking and take action to end Urban Beach Weekend now.

Marian Turk,

Miami Beach
