An entire South Florida SWAT team resigned over criticism from 22-year-old vice mayor who was elected while a student

The Hallandale Beach SWAT team collectively resigned their assignment this week, complaining of criticism from 22-year-old Vice Mayor Sabrina Javellana. The SWAT team made headlines in 2014 after it raided the home of 34-year-old Howard Bowe, killing him and his dog. In 2018, the city agreed to pay Bowe’s family a settlement of $425,000. “I spoke in support of Howard Beale and his family at [Hallandale Beach] city commission meetings before I was ever elected,” Javellana wrote on Twitter. “I will continue to do so no matter the [repercussions] because his life mattered and won’t be forgotten.” Visit
