    The cops out here are jerks. I was coming out of the bar and got gassed, no reason for any of it as the students weren`t causing trouble.

    Dayum. Things were quite a bit crazier in Chapel Hill, but the cops just shrugged and stood around to make sure nobody was hurt.

    Another side of the story:

    http://www.freep.com/news/mich/qspfans28...

    ...About 20 fires were reported since the end of the game
    ..."They`re starting fires wherever there is anything they can burn,"
    ...reports of Dumpsters, sofas and a car being set on fire.
    ...numerous injuries, mostly people being cut from bottles being thrown.
    ...firefighters were pulling back at Cedar Village because they were being pelted with debris.

    I`m not saying that riot cops aren`t above acting like jerks, but it doesn`t sound like these guys just pounced on the scene for "no reason" just because they had nothing better to do.

    That freep article is from 99, I`m talking about Sunday night. Definitely was no fires, no injuries, no firefighters, no pelting of debris. It was a bunch of fans out after a loss, no trouble.

    )-| What the...? What happened to cause this? I haven`t heard anything about this incident, from either side, until now. What happened? Why were the police there?

    I can`t find any information on the news sites I can think of....

    michigan state students are ignorant and dumb anyway. They riot at the drop of a hat. They rioted when they tried to ban alcohol from games. Instead of doing somethign constructive all they want to do is drink and be whores. No wonder the American economy is going down the toiulet and jobs are going overseas with pukes like these wasting space in our universities.

    Hey, don`t put the title liberals on those f*ck faces. We don`t get out in the streets on this sort of crap. These were frat kids. Liberals are pissed of about the fact that the economy`s going down the crapper and the jobs going over seas. That`s why we get out into the streets. And this same sh*t happened in Seattle in 99 over the WTO. Protesters standing around, cops kicking their faces in for no reason. Why do they go after people with cameras? So no one gets to see web pages like this one. You don`t know that they`re thugs with badges, they get to keep having fun.

    I think people need to have some better things to do with their lives than riot over the outcome of a game. A GAME, for pete`s sake.

    Whether these people deserved it or not, we can`t say. We`re only seeing what this person taped. Who knows, there could have been an overturned cop car and some other random stuff lit on fire right behind him.

    Maybe these kids shouldn`t take some college game so seriously, and study instead- since that`s what college is all about, right? )-|

    "Chill out, Ragdrazi, I was just joking."

    Kidding on the square.

    What ever. It`s a perception that needs to be attacked no matter if you meant it or not.

    "What ever. It`s a perception that needs to be attacked no matter if you meant it or not."

    All right...sure...I`ll go with that...

    Anyway, I`m gonna stop here. Instead of saying, "Let`s go to the forums!" it`s like saying "Let`s go argue!" I can see where you are coming from, and I would stand up for my own political party as well, but I really didn`t mean it. For real. When I joke about something, I don`t "perceive" anything. It is nothing more than what it is.

    "Whether these people deserved it or not, we can`t say. We`re only seeing what this person taped. Who knows, there could have been an overturned cop car and some other random stuff lit on fire right behind him."

    Could have... A friend of mine was talking about how a good friend of theirs (at Mi. State) came out of a building and choked on teargas not long afterward and not knowing what had happened at the time (actually, I read her lj after he mentioned it), so there weren`t any visible signs of there having been a riot from where she was in spite of there being teargas everywhere.
