Police in riot gear clashed with a crowd that became unruly outside a Hollywood film premiere Wednesday evening, throwing bottles and vandalizing cars and refusing orders to disperse after they were forced to leave an overcrowded theater, authorities said. "''There were people trampling all over the police cars, smashing the windows," said Greg Magda, who works at a coffee shop on Hollywood Boulevard. The chaos erupted around 5:40 p.m. after a Los Angeles Fire Department inspector determined Grauman's Chinese Theatre, where the film was screening, was overcrowded, department spokesman Brian Humphrey said.

Was this crowd black, white, Mexican, young, old or what??? What was the movie??? Love how much INFO is MISSING from this story!!
Police estimated about 2,000 people were inside the theater to catch the premiere of a documentary about the Electric Daisy Carnival rave.
Judging from the film, it would have been weirdo white kids.
With a description like that, who knows?
I think they were what remains of the white freak crowd; apparently the Electric Daisy rave is some sort of huge drug fest accompanied by music where they all chant about "peace."
The name and subject of the movie is a key fact. Who what why where when. First two paragraphs.
I seems that ‘The Electric Daisy Carnival’ and riots go hand in hand.
Todyas kids are hypnotised easily.
I watch my Grand son and Grand daughter watching show on TV, They are hypnotised, They do not hear or see and don’t take their eyes off the screen as the most stupid shows I ever saw pass before their eyes.
Imagine these kids as teenagers , drunk, smoked up on drugs,no morals, no god, packed into a confined space and it’s Katie bar the door.
You want to keep your kids alive get them off the TV and into doing something useful try to instill some idea of right and wrong , and cut off the money supply that that allows them to go to these things.learn to say “no” to them.
Ah, chanting about "peace". That would explain the riot then.
“Was this crowd black, white, Mexican, young, old or what??? What was the movie??? Love how much INFO is MISSING from this story!!”
Inept has been growing since the’60s—the dope y’know—all these generations since then and their fruit...no wonder we are where we are and there’s anyoneat all left who knows right from obama, etc.
Even Kids are Entitled, it’s only Fair - coming soon to your neighborhood theatres.
That and the chandelier hats...
Amen. Reading this makes me glad I'm old. I feel sorry for today's youngsters. IMHO, their future is gonna suck big time.
Hipsters. The police used an obscure gas on them that you probably never heard of.
“The Day of the Locust” comes to life, at the same place as in the movie.
I just wanted to take a moment and recognize this awesome humor that far too many Freepers won’t get:
“Hipsters. The police used an obscure gas on them that you probably never heard of.”
You sir, win 1 Internet!
“White Punks On Dope.”
Mom and Dad live in Hollywood!
The police should announce to the mob with bullhorns that they are going to be launching tear gas grenades and then applying nightsticks to stragglers. Then go ahead and do it. A few (or a lot of) cracked heads would do wonders in discouraging future mob violence.
