I’m Down For Runnin’ Up On Those Crackers In They City Hall Cop Car

posted by on February 15 at 8:58 AM

A hip-hop concert at The Evergreen State College ended in a riot early Friday in which a Thurston County sheriff’s patrol car was overturned and looted.

Officer[s] arrested a man inside the venue and placed him in the back of the patrol car. Some of the concertgoers were taunting and questioning the actions of the officer, said Trooper Brandy Kessler of the Washington State Patrol.

“They didn’t feel the arrest that was being made was fair,” she said.

The crowd continued to grow and became more aggressive.

“Some people blocked the police car that was trying to take the student away,” said Dan Hilden, a 20-year-old Evergreen student who attended the concert.

Concerned for her safety, the officer called for backup and the arrested man was eventually released.

Six sheriff’s deputies who arrived to assist the campus officer reported that several people in the crowd were throwing rocks, bottles and even a garbage can at the them, and others were grabbing at the deputies’ guns.

What would make dirty hippie Evergreen kids want to riot?

It's not Hip-hop, it's Evergreen. Troublemakers!

Hey now, Chicago. It's possible that Chris Sutton might have been there.
