27 ARRESTS. "independent of the festival"? Who are you kidding. This mob festival must END NOW.

I heard that they wanted to get the mayor's attention.

the chief said he refuses to correlate the festival with the annual riots
he said this could happen on any day they choose and that shutting down the festival wont stop these annual riots
"the definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again while expecting different results"-Einstein
he is clearly unfit for duty and incapable of performing his job
he is clearly illogical and blind to the realities within our community
if he is not blind, then he is corrupt and showing blatant favoritism towards the hispanic community as NO OTHER group of people would get away with such behavior annually. we know this as fact as the precedent has been set with MANY other events being canceled after only one year of problems
if the chief and the mayor and anyone else wish to support this event, it is up to the rest of the community to remove these people from power
take back our city

its only a matter of time until the community members sue all involved for mental distress caused by the annual riots
each year we know the event is coming and each year the residents just have to wait until the end for the riots to start and end, worrying if this year it will directly effect their neighborhood, their property, or not
police are in neighborhoods being forced to fire pepper spray bullets from GUNS
they are operating high tech long range acoustic devices called lrad in order to control these riots
the community has to hide in their homes hoping the devices wont be aimed at their homes during the rioting
the community has to fear stray pepper spray bullets coming into their homes and property
every year we know it will all take place the moment the pr fest ends
and every year we have the officials say the events are unrelated
the lawsuits are inevitable
