VIDEO: Protestors Attack Miami Police With Skateboards In Downtown Miami

Video posted on Twitter shows protestors attacking Miami Police officers with skateboards as they responded to vandalism of statues at Bayside on Wednesday. The video begins with an unmarked police vehicle being blocked by several protestors. Suddenly, two individuals attempt to break the windshield with skateboards. As Police officers exit the vehicle to apprehend them, they are swarmed by protestors. At one point, one protestor uses a skateboard to hit several officers on the ground.

The video was allegedly streamed on Facebook by activist Jahdiel Murray. He has removed the video from Facebook. Murray is a proponent of the “Defund The Police” movement.

Skipper Chuck Explains Memorial Day

If you grew up in south Florida during the 1960s and 1970s, you probably started most mornings watching The Skipper Chuck Show on WTVJ (then Channel 4). In this clip from the Wolfson Archives at Miami Dade College, Skipper Chuck Zink explains the meaning of Memorial Day to kids. As usual, Zink never talked down to his audience. Enjoy.
