Crowd clashes with LA police outside film premiere

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.

Police estimated about 2,000 people were inside the theater to catch the premiere of a documentary about the Electric Daisy Carnival rave.

Hoepfner said there were several hundred people in the street, some wearing lingerie and elaborate chandelier hats when it appeared that a fight broke out.

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.

You could not be more correct! Practiced just that with Son now 28, to a large degree and it worked as you say. No ability to practice it with older Daughter (raised by Ex) and such diametric difference is too easy to see.

Ah, chanting about "peace". That would explain the riot then.

It was the premiere of "Cowboys and Aliens". The white people in the crowd were rooting for the cowboys, and the Mexicans were rooting for the aliens. Then all hell broke loose.

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!

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.
