So what are these brothers' nicknames in the neighborhood, "Dumb" and "Dumber?" One tries to push a police horse around - don't know if he noticed it, but horses are pretty good-sized animals!- and his halfwit brother goes for the police officers' gun! Would've been good if the officer had let Flash "accidentally" step on these two halfwits' toes a few times, too.

Well lets see... Last weekends title about Musikfest was "Despite the rain the music is playing and the beer is flowing" or something to that effect... Well gee, when you set beer in front of people and encourage drinking, don't you think your going to have some severely impaired judgments... Its the same with Marti Gras... they have the same problem there... Yes before anybody asks, I am against alcohol... It has destroyed more families caused more deaths and causes more health problems than anything else... But its big bucks for the people running the show, so its not going to stop "flowing" at Musikfest any time soon... So as long as it continues some stupid mutton head will be led away in hand cuffs and screw up the rest of his life...

What a pair of idiots, "normal" people take comfort in the fact that the police are visible at Musikfest and the horses are beautiful, people like to see them. Send these brothers to Iraq where they can fight for real.

Excellent job by the police in handling this situation! These Tasers are an excellent addition to their weaponry and are proving to be beneficial.

I wonder the police haters are that were bashing the cops for using tasers... Oh yeah! They're eating some crow right now! Lol!

Many can go to an event, enjoy a cold beer on a hot August evening, have a good time and go home without incident, or destroying their lives as you say. Any event where there are a thousand people gathered you can expect a moron in the group. Same for sports events, concerts, etc. Actually, with the amount of people that attend this event, there is a very small percentage of problems.

I grew up with an abusive alcoholic father; I also spent several years as an emergency services worker who answered many calls for accidents involving drunk drivers. And you could count the number of alcoholic drinks I have in a year on one hand. However - I see nothing wrong with people going to a fair, concert, ball game, whatever, and having a beer or 2. We each of us have to start taking responsibility for our own actions and stop blaming everyone else for our wrongdoings. If someone drinks to excess, how is that Musikfests' fault? Guaranteed if someone's going to be a lush and get drunk, they'll do it anywhere. I wasn't at Musikfest but I daresay the vast majority of attendees behaved themselves and if they did drink, they did so in a responsible manner. Unfortunately, it's the few morons who overindulge who get the publicity.

Whats sad is that every year a horse get treated like this,I mean nobody goes up and slaps a cop,but its ok to punch a horse?What a pathetic bunch of loosers.I grew up in Bethlehem and i love it,butits crap like this that gives it a bad name.Its the beer yes it adds to it,but you never read about hings like this at Celtic Classic,so it goes to show you that beer adds a kick when you serve it to idiots!

I think this event can be viewed on youtube. you have to find a 10 minute clip of two Aholes with Judgement day signs basically taunting people to try to incite a fight, at the end of that clip the two Aholes must have been down where this happened. It sure looks like the incident but can anyone confirm.
Hopefully someone will kick the shite out of the Judgement day gospel antagonizers also. Another reason to gate the fest!

Celtic Classic is so short that by the time the valley drunks realize it is happening it is already sunday. Plus at Celtic there is zero tolerance for leaving the "fest" area with your mug of beer. During MusicFarce you basically drive to bethlehem, fill your mug at your car, put a couple in your backpack and walk to fest, when you run out of yours you buy the fest beer, then walk back to your car and drive home..or more than likely to your favorite local bar where you proudly walk in with your mug and ask for a fill up. It is only later around 1am that you eventually drive home.
