    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) –Police in riot gear arrested 10 University of Minnesota students Thursday night after hundreds took to the streets of Dinkytown following the Gophers’ stunning last-second win over North Dakota in the Final Four. Hordes of hockey fans swarmed the intersection of 4th Street and 14th Avenue around 11 p.m., and law enforcement officials responded to the scene, wearing riot gear. “I saw the SWAT team, or whoever they were, marching down the street, and I’ve never seen that before,” said McKenzie Lagodinski, who was arrested. “And just, like, all of a sudden, it was like: Wait, guys, this...

    I assure you, the urge to rage will long outlast the budget of Santa Barbara to keep sending in large numbers of police. It should be noted that 85 percent of complaints received about noise, music and disturbing the peace are called in by law enforcement themselves, in order to “justify” the dissolution of social gatherings in Isla Vista. They treat the UC students as if they didn’t have to work hard to get here, and they treat the CC students like they’ll never amount to anything of substance. Contrarily, SBCC and UCSB are beacons of the educational process in...

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....

On Sunday, city police responded to a call involving 10-15 people fighting at the gym’s Cleveland Avenue location. It started all on the basketball court over a call and escalated, moving into the main fitness area. “People were actually throwing two and a half, five, 10 pound weights within the building,” said Police Lt. Lorne Rosand. This recent fight is just part of a bigger problem. Police say the...

    TAMPA — The first Friday of every Florida State Fair brings droves of Hillsborough teens, who get the day off from school and free admission. And each year, shortly after sunset, dozens of unsupervised minors start stampeding through the midway, the Sheriff's Office says. They're fighting each other, robbing other patrons, stealing food and battering deputies. The phenomenon is so common, deputies even have a term for it: They call it "wilding." Authorities said the lawlessness is mostly confined to the first Friday. But they've never publicly shared details until Monday — after several media outlets, including the Tampa Bay...

    Race-RiotsJohn J. Owens is absolutely sure race had nothing to do with the reason why 30 black people attacked five white people, including a mom and a baby, near Macon Georgia last week. The alleged assailants and victims could have been any race. “Color doesn’t matter, only the ‘idiot factor’ matters,” opined Mr. Owens in the Macon Telegraph. That means the rest is random. Anyone who ever took — and passed — a course in elementary statistics might wander about why Mr. Owens is so willing to dismiss race as a factor in the violence. Because the odds of 30...

    It may not happen this month, or even this year, but food stamp riots are coming to America. In fact, we got a small preview of the coming food stamp riots this past weekend when a "temporary system failure" caused food stamp cards to stop working in 17 U.S. states. Within hours, there were "mini-riots" at Wal-Marts and other retailers that rely heavily on food stamp users. So what would happen if food stamp benefits were cut off or reduced for an extended period of time? As you will see below, if Congress had not pushed through a "deal", the...

    Even by Baltimore standards, neighbors are astonished at the frequency and intensity of black mob violence in and around a suburban skating rink this summer. And last summer. And the summer before. And at other skating rinks and other shopping centers and other neighborhoods in the Baltimore area over the same period. Local media and public officials refuse to report or talk about how everyone involved in these hyper-violent confrontations is black. But neighbors know. And many think that the race of the criminals is preventing law enforcement from arresting and prosecuting those responsible for these “riotous” and “out of...

Rioting had broken out Monday morning, when Border Police were attacked with firebombs, rocks, and bottles. The officers warned off the attackers, but were ignored, and in an effort to defend themselves, opened fire as the crowd descended on them. On Monday afternoon, riots spread to Arab neighborhoods of Jerusalem, including near the Damascus Gate. The IDF said Monday that the incident took place during nighttime activity by security forces for the arrest of a wanted man in Kalandiya. In the...

A woman, badly in need of getting her 7-year-old granddaughter to the hospital due to an allergic reaction, found herself at the mercy of the rowdy protesters.

The program was started up due to a series of home invasions in the area.

    As the defense in the death of Trayvon Martin (a black teen) closes, police are already preparing for possible riots should George Zimmerman (a Hispanic man) be acquitted. It's a sad state of affairs. And let us not forget the huge judgment error made by President Barack Obama to interject himself unnecessarily into the case early on. By doing so, he may well have caused Zimmerman to be over charged by inflaming racial tension surrounding the case. President Obama was billed by his supporters as a racial healer for America. In this case, no matter how the jury rules next...

    HUSBY, Sweden (AP) -- Sweden has long been a bastion of generous social welfare and an egalitarian political culture. So many people were shocked when scores of youths hurled rocks at police and set cars ablaze during rioting in several largely immigrant areas near Stockholm this week. Few dispute that the violence was probably touched off by the fatal police shooting of an elderly man who had locked himself in an apartment wielding a knife. But some residents in the area accused police who responded to the violence of racism. For some, the real reason for the unrest is the...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It happened again. As soon as the warm weather hit, a large group of students in Center City caused a ruckus, endangered themselves, police and pedestrians. The Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office has charged 10 juveniles with Conspiracy, Obstructing Highways, Failure to Disperse and Disorderly Conduct. All 10 defendants are scheduled for a detention hearing Wednesday at the Youth Studies Center in Philadelphia. Four other teens were also arrested by Philadelphia Police on Tuesday evening, and they are currently being processed by police. According to authorities, 11 males and three females were arrested. All of them are teens.

    A Barnado’s charity shop has been forced to close after the front was smashed during a party celebrating the death of Baroness Thatcher. A gaping hole was left in the window of the store in Brixton, south London, where around 150 people gathered for a street party following the news that Lady Thatcher had died of a stroke. Similar celebrations in Bristol left six police officers injured after an anti-Thatcher crowd turned violent and began throwing missiles at police.

    Don't get me wrong ... I can appreciate taking any excuse to party, get drunk, and pretend that the world has been set aright in one fell swoop. (I've been waiting 25 years for the Dodgers to win another World Series for that very reason, and 20 for Notre Dame to win a football championship.) But this is truly, truly strange --- and very revealing, in a number of ways: Hundreds took to the streets as macabre ‘Thatcher death parties’ were held late into the night across the country, organised by critics of the "Iron Lady."Smashed shop windows, paint bombs...

    Kiki Gray would never point a gun at a cop, said his family and friends. He was a “good boy.” Kiki would never even carry a gun. But if he did point it at two plain clothes cops in Brooklyn last Saturday night, Kiki would not have shot them. After all, Kiki was only 16 years old and he was a “some mother’s son.” The videos show a different picture of Kiki. A violent, lawless Kiki that perhaps his family and friends did not know. More on that in a minute. First the killing, then the riot that followed Kiki’s...

    EDITOR’S NOTE: The links in the following report may contain offensive language. School officials say race has nothing to do with the latest example of black mob violence in Minneapolis. Neither did race have anything to do with the dozens of others examples of black mob violence and lawlessness – many caught on video – that have plagued the Twin City for at least three years. So say police. So say reporters. So say public officials. The victims and the videos tell a different story. The latest example hit the news this week: Hundreds of black students were involved in...
