ATTENTION, every city run by far left mayors!
THIS is how it’s down!
The Miami police were attacked by “peaceful protesters” and they did not kneel down or bow down.
They fought back to restore law and order to the streets.
No one was killed or seriously injured.
Instead of retreating and leaving a power vacuum in Miami, the police have been peacefully patrolling the streets to prevent violence.
In an incident caught on video, alleged “peaceful protesters” attacked a car filled with police officers.
Law enforcement was not having any of it. Actions have consequences, as they say.
See the epic viral video below:
The Miami police were cheered and drew widespread support as the videos went viral on social media.
The NY Post has more details:
Dramatic video footage shows the moment Florida cops squared off this week with protesters who jumped onto their car and smashed it with skateboards — prompting some to cheer the officers for their “decisive action.”
In the chaotic footage, the unmarked police cruiser is shown rolling along a downtown Miami street Wednesday before a protester hops onto the hood and two others bash it with skateboards, according to police.
“F— you!” one protester can be heard shouting at police.
Two quick-thinking officers restrain one of the attackers, prompting demonstrators — who had gathered to protest police brutality and the death of George Floyd — to surround the car and taunt them.
“Look at the cops! Look at the cops!” an onlooker yells as police grab the suspects.
Some hailed the cops for being ready to rumble.
“Decisive action was taken by the police and with precision. you can tell the officers had clear rules of engagement and when the line was crossed they restored order quickly. God policing in that situation. Cooled it off real quick too!” one observer wrote on Twitter.
Another added, “This is how you do it Miami PD.”
Turns out Antifa is not welcome in Miami!
Other cities, mayors, and police departments need to take note. THIS is how it's done!
Though the Miami police department is standing strong, they are enacting reform to protect ALL citizens.
Of course, they are addressing race specfically.
But they've also banned neck holds in the wake of George Floyd's death.
Police One confirms the reform:
Miami-Dade police, the largest law enforcement agency in the Southeastern United States, and one of only a very few in South Florida that continue to permit its officers to use a controversial neck restraint to subdue suspects, has banned the practice.
In a series of tweets Thursday morning, Police Director Alfredo “Freddy” Ramirez said he decided to do away with the policy after speaking with experts and community members, many of whom considered the practice dangerous and outdated. The change in policy is immediate.
“This decision was based on a multiple of factors to include officer and public safety, feedback from policing professionals, members of our community, local leaders and officials,” Ramirez said on Twitter. The director also said he chose to change the policy after speaking with members of the Police Executive Research Forum, a respected law enforcement think tank that recommends policy change and often reviews department practices.
The controversial technique — which is also often referred to as a chokehold — involves placing the crook of the elbow below the suspect’s chin and applying pressure for about 10 seconds. The decision from Miami-Dade comes on the heels of a national outcry about police use-of-force policies in the wake of George Floyd’s Memorial Day death at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer.
The move was quickly hailed by police reform advocates.
“I’m stunned,” said Democratic Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, a civil rights advocate and a member of the U.S. House of Representatives since 2011, representing northern Miami-Dade and southern Broward. “It’s something that’s needed. I told him [Ramirez] I’m preparing him a proclamation.”
The only other law enforcement agency in Miami-Dade that continues to use the neck restraint is Hialeah. The department and city have not responded to calls from the Herald for comment. Other police departments like Miami and the Broward Sheriff’s Office allow it only when lethal force is required because someone’s life is in danger.
Thursday evening at Hard Rock Stadium, Ramirez broke the news about the chokehold policy ban to a group of 100 students between the ages of nine and 19 at the 5000 Role Models of Excellence 27th Annual Police & Youth Conference, which Wilson founded in the 1990s to improve relations between black youth and law enforcement.
Miami proves that multiple things can be true at once.
It's possible to have a STRONG police department while also minimizing police brutality and eliminating racial descrimination!
This is the way to do it!
Way to go, Miami!
