    Hundreds Arrested During Wisconsin Halloween Bash


    MADISON, Wisconsin (Oct. 30) - Police used repeated bursts of pepper spray early Sunday to break up a crowd of Halloween celebrants, part of a weekend of revelry in which more than 400 people were arrested.

    No serious injuries or property damage were reported.

    Police declared an unlawful assembly early Sunday in Madison, Wisconsin, and used officers on horseback to move chanting and beverage-tossing revelers off the streets. The pepper spray was used after cups filled with beverages and ice were thrown at officers.

    Most arrests were for alcohol-related offenses, said Lt. Pat Malloy. He said the local detoxification center was filled to capacity and some people had to be taken to emergency rooms.

    There were 269 arrests overnight and 178 the night before, Police Chief Noble Wray said.

    Madison is the home of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

    Officers used pepper spray last year to disperse partygoers that had started a bonfire, started fights, began crowd surfing and set off firecrackers. There were 455 arrests last year, but no serious injuries.

    Among those partying Friday night was Max Costello, 18, a University of Wisconsin freshman dressed as a "Miller Light Knight.''

    He said he spent about a week making his costume, which was made entirely from cans of Miller Light. He was one of the members of the Beer Knight Trio from the Witte Hall dormitory.

    "We also have the Coors Light Knight and the Busch Light Knight,'' Costello said. "Making the costumes wasn't so easy, but getting all the beer cans certainly was.''

    Elsewhere, police in Athens, Ohio, home of Ohio University, made 95 arrests at a Saturday night Halloween block party. Police described the crowd as belligerent but smaller than in previous years. Forty-eight of those arrested are college students, officers said.

    Madison has always been a party town, but I haven't been there since about 1970. I hear these days it's all about keg parties and fraternities, and very little student activist politics. Not surprised, really. That shit was pretty much over by 1975 or so.

    madison- home to tha funcrusher.

    there is a time and a place for tear gas and thats a riot. Where people are burning buildings and looting stores and shooting. Not when a bunch of college students are trying to have clean fun. This just goes to show what level the Madison PD is on. They probably went home and thought they actually accomplished some shit. On the other hand i would say they failed on a huge scale

    Whoa! Some people in a crowd of hundreds responded appropriately to provocation by dickheaded cops infringing on their constitutional right to celebrate Holloween! Then the Cops responded like the overzealous millitant thugs that they are and morrons like you come to expect from our (public servants)! Go fuck yourself dickhead!

    Oooh, you got me dawg! I'm a shit head. :dozey:

    I got an idea though. What's good with responding to the topic at hand? Or even replying to someones post without busting out Teachers red pen and passing out grades for spelling? Personally I don't even care if you call me a shithead, just at least explain how it is that I'm a shithead without it coming down to typos and misspelled words for crying out loud. What the fuck is this... English class? :dozey:

    or..or....maybe i'm the shithead.
    i just posted that because i thought it was funny.
    much like your original spelling error. and your reaction and subsequent correction. i actually wasn't trying to clown you about
    your spellling, i LIKE spellling errors, believe it or not. i'm fully aware that
    picking apart somebody's spellilng is a cheap tactic in arguments..unless of course
    your arguments are worse than your spelling.
    but you're over-reacting like you usually do, so yea, maybe you need to buy a shit cap, diggidy-dawg. go have a kit kat.
     
  13. Take it easy POIESIS. He might start calling you a right-wing asshole, or worse, a cop.
