if the city wont listen to the GOOD people and shut this "garbage fest" down and stop it from taking place again next year, then the GOOD people need to do whatever is needed legally to fight both the city and the pr fest, even if the good people need to take it to federal court

its time to shut this crap down once and for all, it happens every year and every year we get the same line. "the events after the fest were not related"

HORSE FECES! every single year it happens, doesnt happen on ANY OTHER NIGHT, but EVERY SINGLE YEAR after the pr fest ends, its the same thing

Many other good festivals have been shut down after only one year of problems from these invading criminals, but the city wont shut THE CRIMINAL FEST DOWN

its time for the people to shut it down no matter what the city says. this group has become too powerful in this city, its time to put them in their place

bring in the feds to clean up this town and if the city or the feds wont do it, its time for the good people to step up

due to this event, police are being forced to use pepper spray bullets and long range acoustic weapons IN OUR COMMUNITY to control ANIMALS! WELL THE COMMUNITY SAYS ENOUGH!

this event WILL NOT take place again but if it does, i bet there will be a MAJOR lawsuit against all involved in supporting this event and that includes lawsuit against ALL CITY OFFICIALS involved in letting this go forward

You're right about the PGA. Witnessed a lot of people abusing champagne, mobbing golfers (who were minding their own business), trampling rope lines, smoking cigars on the course -- and drivers of the Silver Mercedes 'Official Vehicles' honking at slow moving pedestrians. It was total chaos.

I can tell you I was in constant jeopardy, and feared for my family. We will not return to Oak Hill next year for the 2014 PGA Championship.

Where were the State Troopers to protect us from those striped shirted goons? Horrible, just terrifying.

Your so right it had nothing to do with the PR fest. I think they were out rioting to celebrate National Dig Safely Day. You really sound like an RCSD drop out if you believe the Puerto Rican't fest has nothing to do with these riots year after year.

I think the city of Rochester needs to hold a African American fest just for us to watch and laugh at all the arrests, but even the city of Rochester knows better than that.

Happy days for you. Track that number, and let us know when it is revised. We're all standing by, waiting with excited anticipation. This is great, we can all bash them some more.

More whites are arrested at Keith Urban concerts and that doesn't seem to be a big deal to whites.

Do whites just find disorderly people of other races more scary??
