(KEYT Santa Barbara)   20,000 kids began to riot when the Santa Barbara police react to the annual Deltopia party by shooting rubber bullets into the crowd. Well, as you might expect, it pretty much went downhill from there   (keyt.com) divider line 67

2 stabbings. Kids being drunk idiots. Cops overreacting. Deceptive fark headline.

trappedspirit: The trouble started about 8 p.m. Saturday night as sheriff's deputies responded to two stabbings on Camino Del Sur.

This is why y'all can't have nice things


And yet the prevalent student reaction has been to whine, "But it was out-of-towners who cause the violence! Why can't we have our parties just because of a few out-of-towners?"

As a doctoral student at UCSB, this shiat frustrates me to no end. I came here to work with some of the leading people in my field while being almost fully funded through TAships, but the undergraduates came here to party on their parents' dime. I have to teach them, even when they're hungover and high; I get to live near enough to hear the grenades go off; and I get to have a degree from a school associated with a party scene that's gotten demonstrably more violent since I enrolled so long ago. Fun.

If anyone is interested, I can post the email I got from the Associated Students. In a nutshell, it says, "Stop blaming out-of-towners."

I think the G20 protest may have been a little more violent. Not to mention the biannual hockey related riots.

hardinparamedic: gulogulo: Some countries riot for freedom, injustice, etc. American riots usually start cause we had too much to drink.

Meanwhile, in Canada, rioters staged the most violent protest in Canadian history, with three dollars in damage.


The above was supposed to be a reply

This is not a repeat from 1969.

I don't know which gets slapped on the table quicker, the race card or the agent provocateur card.  No one ever seems to play the personal responsibility card.

Cops tend to increase the level of violence in a crowd by getting violent.

MJMaloney187: Many moons ago, I was the night manager at a hooker motel. One night this rough looking chic just plopped her fat a*s down on one of the window A/C units. I said, "ma'am, please don't sit on that. You're going to break it."

"F*CK you," she said real rude like.

I wasn't being a jerk. Window units aren't seats."Look, if you don't get off, I'm calling the cops."

"F*CK YOU, call the cops!!"

So I did. A really cool older cop showed up. "Honey," he said all nice like, "please come here and tell me what's wrong." Guess what she said? If you guessed, 'F*CK you,' you're right. So old Hammer calls in the women cops. When two of them showed up and physically tried to remove her from the A/C unit, she started kicking and screaming. She kicked one of those chic cops right in the face. That's when they decided to arrest her. Meanwhile, the crowd that gathered and witnessed the entire exchange started to get agitated. "Let her go," they said, "she ain't even done nothin'."

Savages.


Hopefully you moved onto something else in a better area and with better people. That kind of behavior just eats your soul away.

Oh yea, because this is a totally new thing.  Lived in CA for a very long time, riots in IV have been happening for many, many years.  Usually about spring break time.

Group together 15 to 20,000 young people cutting loose with alcohol and a variety of uppers, downers, laughers, screamers, add in lots of weed and the usual "I'm invincible!" attitudes, and well, geee, surprise that things get a bit spirited.

It's more of a surprise how few get hurt/killed.  One year a guy drove his expensive sports car into the crowd pretty much on purpose...

Uh, hello students, have you forgotten that to the rest of us in the County, you are the out-of-towners?
I wonder how Congresswoman Capps feels about this, knowing that these are the people that keep her in office.

Why couldn't they just wait until Halloween to riot?

Weird thing is, I've been at many a Halloween riot at UCSB. Most unforgettable time was walking through Isla Vista stoned to the bejeezus, with heavily armed riot police walking past me in both directions.  Closest I've been to a loaded M-16. They didn't give a crap about the stoners, though. It was the drunk people who cause all the problems.

Cops overreacting to being attacked for arresting criminals who stabbed someone? I suppose you simply would have asked everyone nicely to disperse and given the suspects an appoint for tomorrow, 8am SHARP MISTER, and it all would have settled down?
