I'm a Uruguayan and have live in NY for the last 11 years, i'm very disappointed with the actions that all the Uruguayan fans did on that celebration starting with the simple fact that the business owner that promoted all this celebration they never request any permit to the authorities to close the street and go with the parade, Police was very respectful and they tolerated us while watching the game on the street for a period of time of about 2:30 hrs, after that they started asking people to clear up the street and continuing the celebration on the sidewalk, so traffic could keep moving... which the youngest fans denied to do and started provoquind the police officers, the police didn't not do more than apply the law, of course in the process some people was attacked or hit by accident by any police man but in the crowd police must protect them self and they can not assume who is disturbing or not, so to all these fans please stop embarrassing our small community of Uruguayans, and I support the police 100%

somebody should have called INS, not that they would do anything anyway.
it's nice to see people getting excited and showing national pride in their homeland, but when living in another country, that countries and states and city laws need to be followed.
whether during a joyful celebration or not.
i'm sure that the crowd did get rowdy, and that police just didn't show up and start harassing people like the old man in the story said.

This is phatetic, do not protect the NYPD. They attacked innocent people, you need to check the videos first, and then say all you want. Shame of you all.

Thanks for the video, but, I gotta ask...
Did sombody put something in the cops' coffee that morning? Because that is about the calmest grouping of policemen (and women) that I have ever seen.
What I don't see in the video is what led up to that man being detained.

Lolo : You are clueless, if you truly were there like you say then you should know that is not how it went! And I am very ! Protecting the NYPD? And you say you've been here for how many years?? Have you been living under a rock in Central Park all this time? No, you probably were not at the celebration and did not see how the police acted...that's gotta be it!
shameless-li : You say you're sure the crowd did get rowdy... how are you so sure? were you there? you're as full of it as Lolo is....and fyi there aer no laws in the state of NY that prohibit dancing on the sidewalk. Lolo, take off your rose colored glasses already and shamless li... get informed and get around more often... see the world and grow up

quote: "There were 700 to 800 people in the crowd, said NYPD spokesman Paul Browne.
Five were arrested and charged with obstructing governmental administration, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, Deputy Inspector Kim Royster said.
Two officers were treated at a the hospital for bruises."

must have been some cha-cha line.
