PureBounds: 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.


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.

Please explain what a better approach would have been that would have had the massive gathering dispersed without violence from either side? I'll wait.

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.

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.


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

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.

I'm not a cop nor an expert on crowd control. BUT, showing up ready for war typically leads to war. 

How about they try this first:

Uniformed officers arrive (lights and sirens, be seen ).
Uniformed officer with bullhorn CALMY tells the crowd that the gathering is illegal and to disperse.
After waiting..... they probably don't leave....
Uniformed officers start arresting people one at a time.
Eventually people start to leave to avoid arrest.


Yeah pretty sure that would not work out as planned. You know how I know you have never been in a large party that turns to a mob?

Simon Phoenix! Put down the gun...or else!!

You're out-of-sync with the narrative on this one. This time, it's "Police caused this problem by not suppressing the event hard enough when they showed up."

Imma let you finish, but 2001 had one of the greatest Hill Riots of all time. Of all time

One of the Hill's streetlight heads lived in my, uh, friend's dorm room for the rest of that year.

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

That's right. An early "Welcome to CU" for me.


That's pretty amusing.  Was my freshman year as well.  I remember the tear gas wafting all the way to my dorm that evening.

Back in my college town, the police got their APV's out and formed a line.  They fired gas and locked shields and marched on the party.  It got plenty of views, and resulted in the police department losing all of their APVs and their shields, and several people were fired.  The videos showed the kids were not disruptive, there was no COVID back then, and there was no history of injuries or fights breaking out.  Multiple angles of the video existed, and the cops were screwed on that one.

Then the kids ruined a year later by rioting, looting, and burning things when one student in a dorm shot their roommate.  So the police got ALL of their toys back, and got extra people and body armor, too.

Though ... I'll admit the police were always very anti-student.  I got stopped several times for no reason except that I was the wrong age.  They'd search for drugs, search for guns, search for alcohol, and never found anything so sometimes they'd make things up.  I got a ticket for not having FLARES, once.  So ... I'm torn on that town's issues.  The students need limitations, and the police force needs limits, as well.  But everyone on both sides is doing whatever they can to remove limitations for their side, and escalate the hell out of things.

Mutually assured annihilation may be the only solution.  I propose allowing each side to have a few nukes.

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.
