Miami Beach Human Rights Committee wants feedback on Memorial Day weekend experience

With Memorial Day weekend about to start, Miami Beach is getting prepared.

That means barricades, crowd control and a major police presence along with lots of parties and visitors. For lots of Beach residents, the Memorial Day crush and attendant traffic makes for a less than relaxing holiday.

In years past, the city has been criticized for policing too little and policing too much. The Collins Avenue shooting of a motorist by police three years ago is still under investigation, and subject of a lawsuit. The annual arrest tally has drawn criticism from civil libertarians.

The Miami Beach Human Rights Committee has posted an online survey to get your thoughts (and those of visitors) on how well the city prepared for the festivities — and how it handled the weekend.

It wants to know if you felt safe — and whether the city treated residents and visitors with respect.
