    The City of Miami Beach in Florida is so annoyed by the army of spring breakers descending on its beaches for wild parties fueled by alcohol and drugs that it’s considering a drastic, if a little bizarre, countermeasure. One elected city official suggested playing classical music, such as Mozart, at loud volumes to break up parties on the beach. That's according to a report in The Miami Herald, which said the city's commissioners were juggling ideas on how to tackle spring break partygoers after a chaotic weekend.

    One of the Parkland school shooting survivors is calling on tourists to boycott the State of Florida for spring break as a way to get legislators’ attention focused on gun control. “Let's make a deal DO NOT come to Florida for spring break unless gun legislation is passed,” David Hogg, a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student who is a leader in the #neveragain movement, posted on Twitter on Saturday. Hogg said he hoped his tweet would make state politicians listen if the “billion-dollar tourism industry in Florida” makes gun control measures a priority. “If the legislators aren’t going to...

    A Mexican newspaper condemned American spring breakers who reportedly chanted "Build that wall!" during a family show on a tourist ship off Cancun. In an editorial Friday, the Yucatan Times called the singing during a "Pirate Ship" attraction an act of "xenophobia and discrimination against Mexicans within their own country." The newspaper added that the "racist hymn" wasn't an isolated incident and that numerous complaints about spring breakers have been lodged by Mexican tourist industry workers. The paper referred to a social media post by Anaximandro Amable, a Peruvian who was aboard the ship: "Today I was with Suly, my...

    This destination attracts a fair share of college students year-round, but Cancun's coed party crowd can swell to more than 100,000 during spring break. The students are lured by sunny beaches, inexpensive lodging, endless nightlife, and a legal drinking age of 18.

    Two years ago James Madison University (Virginia) pioneered the Nap Nook: JMU has created the first ever “designated student napping center in a university setting.” Perhaps this is a backlash against the move 15 years ago to eliminate their nap time in kindergarten. You know: like daylight savings time - cut the blanket off on one end and sew it on the other.And now I see that Southern Illinois University is hosting “nap-ins” to “help students dream of diversity.” Didn’t we already do that? And aren’t we diverse enough yet?Anyway, I’m beginning to suspect that college stew-dents are napping when...

    As Washington D.C. liberals continue their fight for 'free' college education for all (which, of course, is just a nicer way of saying largely useless community college education crammed down the throats of taxpayers) and student loan forgiveness programs, a new study from LendEDU reveals some of the shocking realities behind where college students are really spending their $1.3 trillion worth of student debt. Per a survey of 500 college co-eds, LendEDU found that 31% of students, or roughly 2.4 million kids, admitted to using student loan money to fund their binge drinking trips to Cancun and Daytona Beach for...

Witnesses said it started as a fist fight in the middle of Ocean Drive and escalated into a shooting. Antoinne Decade, 20, was shot once in the chest and died in the hospital, investigators announced.

    The word whispered across South Beach Friday night was “chaos” after the spring break crowds got out of control, forcing Miami Beach police to call for back up units. Miami Beach police told CBS4 that spring break crowds flowed off the beach and onto Lummus Park between 7th and 9th streets before spilling onto ocean drive. As police tried to control the crowds – getting them off the street and onto the sidewalk – people pushed, brawls broke out and objects were thrown. The crowd became so big and out of control so quickly that Miami Beach police had to...

Many watched, some recording with their phones — but no one tried to intervene, officials said.

    Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri is defending the actions of one of his deputies seen on a video breaking up a fight on St. Pete Beach.

On the video, you can see Bingham grab 25-year-old Joshua McMahan by the neck and throw him to the ground.

    About 100 people were arrested and at least 44 people were taken to the hospital during a weekend college party in Southern California that devolved into an out-of-control street brawl, authorities said. The violence broke out in the densely populated beachside community of Isla Vista around 9:30 p.m. Saturday during the annual spring break party known as Deltopia, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office said. Sheriff’s spokeswoman Kelly Hoover said things escalated after a University of California, Santa Barbara police officer was hit in the face with a backpack filled with large bottles of alcohol.

Social media, including Twitter and Facebook, have also carried reports of the First Daughters' presence at Atlantis. One person who is...

Aiza says the assailants arrived at "The Mermaid" bar in a poor area far from Cancun's hotel zone in two cars Thursday afternoon. He says two gunmen using automatic rifles went inside and began shooting.

    A 73-Year-Old Man Tried to Assassinate JFK with a Buick Full of Dynamite Weeks after John Fitzgerald Kennedy beat Richard Nixon in the 1960 United States presidential election, an elderly man nearly killed the President-Elect. Richard Pavlick, a disturbed man with anti-Catholic sentiments, packed his car and traveled from New Hampshire to Florida with one goal in mind - the death of President-Elect Kennedy. Pavlick's brute force plan would likely have succeeded, but a moment of compassion stopped Pavlick in his tracks and allowed for the era of Camelot to begin. Retired postal worker Richard Pavlick often voiced anti-Catholic sentiments...
