|Drunk white kids at the University of Arizona get to meet what "the state has the monopoly on violence" means|
Students at the University of Arizona apparently did not take Saturday night’s loss to Wisconsin in the Elite Eight well.
According to student newspaper Daily Wildcat’s Twitter account (@dailywildcat): “Dozens of students shot with beanbags” by law enforcement who were wearing riot gear and gas masks.
There were no reports of injuries to fans or officers, but 15 people were arrested for offenses such as resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and unlawful assembly, Tucson police Sgt. Pete Dugan said.
Dugan said crowds leaving bars and restaurants near campus after the game filled University Boulevard and wouldn't leave despite urging through a PA system and social media declaring it an unlawful assembly.
Police brought in cruisers and a unit of officers with batons, helmets and face masks to block the street when people started tossing beer bottles, cans and firecrackers, hitting police vehicles and endangering officers.
University students engaged in behavior that violates our Student Code of Conduct will be held accountable.
Officers fired pepper spray, pepper canisters and pepper balls, which disperse into the air when they hit, Dugan said. No tear gas was used despite some reports.
The college's student newspaper The Daily Wildcat reported police officers in riot gear formed a line across University Boulevard when the game ended. Officers riding on motorcycles circled fans lined up along the street and then fans then began throwing smoke bombs, beer and objects at the line of police.
|200+ blacks freely roamed the streets of Louisville, attacking white people, robbing pedestrians and engaging in flash mobs of businesses... police no where to be found.|
Louisville, like all American cities eventually will if the police are not allowed to forcefully deal with black dysfunction, is in the processing of surrendering to the same forces that made living in Detroit in an intolerably cruel proposition for white people. [Saturday's Louisville mob violence step-by-step, Courier Journal, 3-28-14]:
A swarm of two dozen teenagers walked up to a man on the Big Four Bridge around 7 p.m. Saturday and asked him for a cigarette. Then, without provocation, they pummeled him.
Within minutes, 10 teenagers on the bridge shoved another man to the ground, beat and kicked him, as his wife and granddaughters watched and wept.
The simultaneous attacks in broad daylight early Saturday evening were the opening salvo in a rampage that spanned at least three hours and two dozen blocks, and has, in the days since, sent city officials scrambling to reassure the public that downtown Louisville has not devolved into a lawless battlefield.
A Courier-Journal review of dozens of incident reports obtained from Louisville Metro Police chronicle the teens' movements. Mobs of teenagers roved the streets, several dozen people deep. They beat a man unconscious, broke windows, threw rocks at moving cars, looted a store, threatened a police officer and mugged anyone who dared get in their way. More than 30 people called to report trouble. Police have counted at least 20 crimes, and suspect there are more that have yet to be reported.
"They were organized and nobody else was," Jean Henry said of the mob that knocked her 61-year-old husband to the ground on the Big Four Bridge, then beat and kicked him. "When I was running to my husband, I looked around. I couldn't tell who was in the group and who just happened to be up there. People were in shock, I think that's why nobody helped us."
Police Chief Steve Conrad has spent the days since defending his department's response to the outbreak of violence, and explaining how a mass of kids managed to elude police for hours and continue robbing, beating and vandalizing.
Not only that, but the city leaders of Louisville have surrendered even further to the black rioters, waving the white flight and hosting community events where the blacks can vent their frustrations. [Dozens of youths gather to talk about violence, Courier Journal, 3-28-14]:
Five days after hordes of teens terrorized downtown Louisville, the city on Thursday gathered dozens of boys and girls and young adults — almost all of them black — to talk about violence in their community.
"We have violence in the community because that is all we see," one of boys said. "We don't see people who are successful. We see people who are broken, so we want to break people."
Added another: "A lot of my homies don't get too much encouragement at home. They feed off the stupid things their parents do."
Those comments came Thursday at the Yearlings Club, 4309 West Broadway, in one of two meetings of young people to discuss violence and how to prevent it from recurring. The meeting at the Yearlings Club was for boys only; another session for girls was held simultaneously at the Urban League. About 110 people — half of them girls, the rest adults, attended that session, according to Phil Miller, a spokesman for Mayor Greg Fischer.
"We need them at the table to guide the work we do going forward," Anthony Smith, director of the city's department of Safe and Healthy Neighborhoods, said of the young people.
City officials told public and private schools about the meetings and asked students to volunteer to attend.
Saying that they feared a heavy media presence would deter attendance, the city required that the meetings they organized at private venues be covered on a pool basis, to be shared by all local media. The Courier-Journal and WLKY-TV covered the meeting of boys and young men; Louisville Public Media reporter Jacob Ryan and WDRB-TV covered the girls' meeting until they were asked to leave because the girls had been promised there would be no media. Men also were asked to leave, said Phil Miller, a city spokesman.
