Igor Jakovsky: Fubegra: One of the scariest single experiences in my life was the crowd on Green Street in Champaign-Urbana on Halloween, 1985. Even though it was peaceful, the sheer population density was such that one spark could have set off a disaster. Once I worked my way out of the crowd, I got the hell away from that scene.ive only felt like that once. it was on bourbon street on new years eve. the crowd was so densely packed that when it moved you moved with it and had no choice. had something set off the crowd people would have been stampeded.
cefm: One particularly annoying tactic that police sometimes use in this situation is to seal off the area first, preventing anyone from leaving, then go through making arrests. That pretty much CAUSES the riot.
