Where the hell were these drunks when we needed them, on Black Lives Matter Plaza against Burr's Little Green Men?

"Why can't people just make their own decisions on wearing a mask?" I hear and see too often.

Because they go out and do this kind of sh*t:

Great

If they start shooting, I will have to listen to another, buffalo springfield song remake.

They did damage this time but SWAT learns. Next time they'll be back - and in greater numbers.

Hey kids back in the 80's when we were jammin to this on our wax drum players, we understood the concept of metaphor.  Take your vector asses back to the dorms and yeet your junk.

Shoulda loaded the cops up with paintball guns filled with the same paint they use in money bags that wont wash off and told them to fire at will

Then cite anyone who got hit

The students were stupid, but the police were creepy. Why the hell would you need a "light armoured patrol vehicle" to deal with a bunch of drunk students?
 
2021-03-08 11:29:21 AM  
Ahhhh, memories.  Was in a riot on the same block back on Halloween in 2004.  It's kind of funny that more of us were wearing masks back then than in this picture.

Replace "bunch of drunk students" with "drunken mob."

I mean honestly though, what were the cops supposed to do in this situation? The students weren't exactly innocent here.

Nice touch on going maskless while hundreds of cameras film you destroying things. This is how you know that they know there will be no repercussions from this.

Though as porch couches go, I can't be 100% sure those scuzzy things didn't happen to just spontaneously combust due to the mass of the gunk on and in them.

While hostility towards police officers is admittedly an admirable character trait, it would be better to wear a mask while expressing it

One of the things I've always appreciated about Boulder is the willingness to inspire creativity in the student body by escalating conflicts through use of organized force against parties.  You never saw a line of cops in riot gear in any other party district but the Hill. Now that the government has been gifting used military vehicles to the police, CU grads will be able to respond to life situations like open insurrection and food riots better than graduates from other state institutions.  Except Colorado School of Mines, because those peeps bring it, hard.

Respond the same way they would to a black family in the park and send out a couple armored vehicles?

Was that one after the Big 12 championship?  That was my first riot.  I was just a wee baby then.

I guess "NOT send a swat team, wearing battle armor and driving an urban assault vehicle" would have been a good start.

I'm on the CU mailing list and we just got a letter from the president of the university about how disappointed he is in everyone, and how "there may be consequences"
 
2021-03-08 12:31:45 PM  
The lunacy of sending a single SWAT team is hilarious.

Where was the tear gas, the rubber bullets, etc? It seems that those were really needed.

/Expel the crap out of these shiats.

SpectroBoy: Cops: You know what would really bring a peaceful end to this large crowd of drunk people!?!? We should send the SWAT team armed for war. That should de-escalate it nicely.

Because politely asking them to disperse in plain clothes would be better? Please. These kids are assholes and should have gotten riot cannoned.

Then fire whomever decided a SWAT team was they way to deal with the situation.

SWAT is supposed a very specific purpose, and this wasn't it.

I remember massive parties this big or bigger where I went (obviously we didn't have plagues back then just VD). They never sent a single swat team to break them up. What is that shiat. Usually they just let it burn out, when the kegs and fridges ran dry people went home. There was big deal after I was out that then sent in buses of officers in riot gear and rubber bulleted, roughed up and CS gassed a shiat ton of people; plus students started to set shiat on fire. That resulted in a lot of lawsuits and cost the city/state. Obviously you can't have huge gatherings with covid, but in normal times I don't know what you do in these sort of situations. Fence off an area and say have at it but don't drive out of here? Every moran videos everything stupid they do now so I guess go for court cases on property damage after the fact.

orbister: The students were stupid, but the police were creepy. Why the hell would you need a "light armoured patrol vehicle" to deal with a bunch of drunk students?


Considering the amount of damage the vehicle sustained, I'd say that was a good choice. They should have sent a larger force however. 800 people is a shiatload of people and to claim they were innocent because they are "just drunken college students" is a bullshiat excuse. They are a violent mob that should have been forcibly dispersed and arrested. Each and everyone one of those farkers. We are in the middle of a pandemic and what they are doing, outside of the aggressive actions to outside forces, is endangering the lives of countless individuals and is not just putting their own health at risk.
 
2021-03-08 1:01:47 PM  
I should also add from what I remember a lot of problems in college are caused by people who don't even go to the college. Friends visit or locals just come and get wasted and trash shiat. It ain't their school. I bet half of that CU party problem crowd was the same.

All I see is the era when the series started to get competitive, CU pulled out of the deal in Denver and would only play in Boulder.
