Thousands Riot In The Streets of Isla Vista
keyt.com ^ | UPDATED: 03:06 AM PDT Apr 06, 2014

Posted on 04/06/2014 6:19:03 AM PDT by BenLurkin

The trouble started about 8 p.m. Saturday night as sheriff's deputies responded to two stabbings on Camino Del Sur. Two people were taken to the hospital. Their injuries are unknown.

About 9:30 p.m., a UCSB police officer was hit in the head with a backpack full of liquor bottles. Two Santa Barbara County sheriff's deputies also responded and were injured. One deputy was hit with a bottle and will undergo surgery on his hand. The violence escalated and another deputy was hit in the head with a brick. The UCSB police officer and both deputies are expected to be fine.

About 10:30 p.m., it turned into a riot with people in the crowd tearing down stop signs, setting mattresses on fire, and throwing more bottles, bricks and other objects at law enforcement. All emergency personnel were told to leave the area for their safety including paramedics and county firefighters.

People drinking and having a good times, and then the SWAT teams show up and start beating the crap out of people. And they call it a riot. Who incited the violence? The militarized cops, that’s who.

And I missed it?!?!

Meanwhile over at the monster truck show last night in Pocatello there was the opening prayer followed by the presenting of the Colors (in the spotlights) with the National Anthem sung by a barbershop style quartet (bottom left). And one marriage proposal.

There WAS a casualty later but no injuries.

From the pictures and video at www.keyt.com, it looks like college aged white kids with some black and Asian. Is this just spring break partying or the beginning of a long summer taken together with the Tucson, NCAA B-ball riot?

Righto. When people are drinking, having a good time and stabbing people, and then cops who show up in response to the stabbings are injured, the cops should not respond.

Or possibly they shouldn’t respond to the stabbings.

Okay, who brought the mattresses? Do people normally bring mattresses to a party or riot?

That was my first thought as well... how are there always random mattresses laying around when trouble is brewing? If I ever see some mattresses in unexpected locations in any numbers whatsoever, I think that’ll be my cue to get out of Dodge.

EXACTLY!!! ROFLMAO!!!

Someone should make a funny video starring mattresses that hang out in the ‘hood, college campuses, sports stadiums, and other places where riots seem to break out all too often, and then self-immolate at just the right time.

I’ve known a couple of dorm mattresses that needed to be burned. They made better toboggans than beds.

Are there usually stabbings at the “good times” in which you participate?

Mobs are a dangerous phenomena, be it a protest, college revelry, or Trevon supporters, or patriotic revolutionaries. There are always a few unbalanced people therin who are seeking the cover of numbers to engage in vandalism or violence. There are sometimes leaders who encourage mob action for perceived political gains.

Parents should always teach their children to almost always avoid the excitement of a large crowd, except at sporting/music events, etc.

The cops were called to a stabbing and a few of them are dumb enough to get smacked with bricks and beer bottles. Dumb cops. Guess they should have ignored the stabbings. Darn them for doing their job.

I see an opportunity here to create a plethora of new federal agencies and reduce unemployment.

First, we could upgrade the BATFE and add Knives so that it would become BATFEK.

Then we need to investigate the use of bricks and mattresses as weapons of terror so maybe we could create the Office of Bricks and Mattresses Administration or OBMA./s

Don’t forget the patriotic tea party. They are liable to leave a “protest” area cleaner than they found it!

This is why I stay out of all cities in my travels now.

I thought the quiet college town of Saratoga, NY would be safe.

A couple of summers as we drove through it, drunken white college "students" were jumping up on random car hoods and tops and "dancing".

We got away unscathed due to the high hood of our Grand Cherokee and my erratic driving.

It takes a few hours longer to travel now, but the scenery is better, and hopefully the security too.

You have a peculiar opinion on what constitutes a good time.

Do people normally bring mattresses to a party or riot?

When I attended UCSB way back when, mattresses would appear at parties from time to time to soften the fall of those people who would take in too much nitrous oxide. How these kids ever got their hands on a tank of N2O was never learned, but this was quite popular in IV at one time. It looks like the student ghetto hasn't changed much since then as riots and wild parties were common there 30 years ago. Stabbings, not so much. But there was always a population of non students in this town that were scary people.

I am sure that if these were all Blacks, at say, Jacksonville Beach, you would be singing a different tune.

I didn’t forget the tea party. I only hope that there is a political solution, and that a patriot mob will not be necessary.

Mobs always bring excess, and it would not be pretty.
