Spring Break 2015 in Florida and Mexico

Florida has long struggled with the crowds of rowdy students embracing its sun, sea and party life in March and April. For example in Panama City Beach. Drug use, assaults, burglaries, robberies, a stabbing, a shooting and two accidental deaths comprise just a sample of a week’s worth of law enforcement reports from roughly 100,000 revelers spending millions of dollars in this small, northwestern Florida town.
