Miami Beach officers acted like thugs. Looks like they learned nothing from George Floyd | Editorial
A gang of hoodlums surrounded a victim. Any rattled witness would have called the police. But the hoodlums were the police, if the video released Monday is any indication.

Booker condemned the decision, calling it an “outrageous act of punitive retaliation and prosecutorial vindictiveness.”
