“She has absolutely no respect for law enforcement,” President of the Miami Fraternal Order of Police Javier Ortiz said.
Police in Miami recently voted unanimously to opt out of security duty for her upcoming concert.

Beyonce’s tour is sold out in 16 cities.
Police unions in Tampa and Nashville also voted to boycott her show.
