8/23    Utah police go nutzoid:
        http://www.buzzlife.com/forums/showthread.php?t=62975
        \_ So, were all of the bits in the Sherriff's Dept. official
           statement complete fabrication?
           \_ Yeah, the police never fabricate anything.
                \_ This is nothing.  The Czech police used a tank!
              \_ No, but when you have 2 versions of events on the internet,
                 and one requires the police to just be EVIL AND HATE FREEDOM
                 and the other that the people reporting this were on drugs
                 (while at a rave, no less), Occam's Razor says...
                 \_ Well the police's version (paraphrased) is that a large
                    party somebody is probably doing something illegal, so they
                    decided to bust it up and include the SWAT team because
                    regular cops are no match for raver kids.
                    \_ No, the police version is that something was probably
                       illegal, then that they didn't have the right permits,
                       then that they surveilled and there WAS illegal stuff
                       going on, then they went in.
                       \_ So do you suggest Gestapo tactics for other
                          gatherings that include illegal activity, such as
                          rock concerts and frat parties?
                          \_ And you just know at a left-wing political rally
                             somebody's going to be carrying drugs.
                             \_ Right, and at a right wing political rally
                                you know somebody is going to be carrying
                                loaded automatic weaponry without the proper
                                permit.  So either way, yay!
                                concealed loaded automatic weaponry, so
                                either way, yay!
                 \_ Um, read some of the local press articles linked to from
                    the various web forums.  Guns, Drugs, and note how they
                    bring up the possibility of rape, and how there may be
                    many minors (won't someone think of the children!) there.
                    They make it sound like a Hell's Angels 666th anniversary
                    grill party and baby sacrifice.  Occam's razor also says
                    that mindless police brutality and excessive force are not
                    unknown.  But then it's just a bunch of drug-addled
                    children, so...  -John
        \_ Heh, I like this:
           "I saw a dog signal out a guy who obviously had some drugs on
            him....They had liscenced security guards at the gates
            confiscating any alcohol or drugs found upon entry (yes, they
            searched every car on the way in). Oh, I suppose I should
            mention that they arrested all the security guards for
            possession."

           okay, but doctors and dentists are not allowed to run commercials
           or ads.

The hype behind this show was huge, they presold 700 tic kets and they expected up to 3,000 people total. they even made slipmats with the flyers on the m to promote in local shops. So, we got to the show around 11:15 or so and it was really cool. It was all outdoors, in a valley surrounded by huge mountains. They had an amaz ing light show flashing on to a mountain behind the site, the sound was booming, the crowd was about 1500 people thick and everything just seeme d too good to be true really. At about 11:30 or so, I was standing behind the stage talking with someon e when I noticed a helicopter pulling over one of the mountain tops. I j okingly said "Oh look, here comes big brother" to the person I was with. The helicopter dipped lower and lower and started shining its lights on t he crowd. I was kind of in awe and just sat and watched this thing circl e us for a minute. As I looked back towards the crowd I saw a guy dresse d in camoflauge walking by, toting an assault rifle. At this point, ever yone was fully aware of what was going on . A few "troops" rushed the st age and cut the sound off and started yelling that everyone "get the fuc k out of here or go to jail". They had police dogs raiding the crowd of people and I saw a dog signal out a guy who obviously had some drugs on him. The soldiers attacked the guy (4 of them on 1), and kicked him a few times in the ribs and had their knees in his back and sides. As the y were cuffing him, there was about 1000 kids trying to leave in the bac kdrop, peacefully. Next thing I know, A can of fucking TEAR GAS is launc hed into the crowd. Now, this is all I saw with my own eyes, but I heard plenty of other acco unts of the night. Now this isnt gossip I heard from some candy raver, t hese are instances cited straight out of the promoters mouth.. As she struggled to get away from it, the police tac kled her. People were trying to do cument what was happening out there. The police saw one guy filming and ran after him, tackled him and his camera fell, and luckily.. The police then said, "no you don't" and ripped the permit ou t of his hand. Then, they put an assault rifle to his forehead and said "get the fuck out of here right now." They had a 2 MILLION DOLLAR insurance policy for the event. They had liscenced security guards at the gates confiscating any alcohol or drugs found upon entry (yes, they searched every car on the way in). Oh, I suppose I should mention that they arrested all the security guards f or possession. The owne r of the land already has a lawsuit against the city for something simil ar. A few months ago, she rented her land for a party and the police rai ded that as well. And catch this, the police forced her to LEAVE HER OWN PERSONAL PROPERTY. Don't get it twisted, this is all going down in probably THE most conserv ative state in the USA. The police wanted this party shut down, so they made it ha ppen. The promoters s pent over $ 20,000 on this show and did everything they had to to make i t legit, only to have it taken away from them by a group of radical neo- con's with an agenda. This was one of the scariest things I have ever witnessed in person. Helicopters, assault rifl es, tear gas, camoflauge-wearing soldiers.... When we'r e losing the right to gather peacefully, we're also letting the police s et a standard of what we can get away with. They broke up a party that was 100% le gal and they physically hurt a lot of people there at the same time. The promoters already have 6 lawsuits ready to file with their lawyers and the ACLU is already involved. I'm sure some pictures (and hopefully some video) will surface soon. I'll make sure to post them up here on 404, so you can see the Police State of America at work. ps - there are more stories of police brutality that i'll post up later . can't wait to get the fuck out of this shi t hole state. This needs to get i nto the hands of someone who can make a difference. I'm hoping that the videos and more pictures are released by those in possession of them.

This was actually some of my friends' pary and I was almost gonna fl y home for it. Its getting almost impossible to throw parties there, especialy in Utah c ounty. I have a feeling that it was taken to this extent because another party was just held called Summer Sequence and the authorities tried ev erything they could to shut the party down, but weren't able to.
