So they had to call in law enforcement that wasn't scared of all the punks. Do some more drugs students . They are nothing but a bunch of drugged up, strung out kids. The locals haven't done anything about all the drugs, so what made you think they could control a crowd that large and loud? No one cop had a bullhorn. The mob pushed the police around. Very pathetic.

*Not one cop*. If they had one I never seen or heard one. Did they not know how many tickets were sold? Why didn't they keep better count of the amount of people at the event? The event rocked, it was awesome. Why didn't someone put some more thought into it. Nobody and I mean nobody should have walked the road or the driveway. The police should have been able to keep people from walking the drive, which all and all created the mass confusion. I'm very surprised nobody was killed. How many injuries? The emergency squad couldn't even get into the injured. EMTs should have been inside the event already. Nobody had a plan and everyone on the force was too scared to enforce the rules. Does OU have a police academy that trains these officers. If so this could explain alot of the problem. Seriously how hard would it have been for someone to do some problem solving and stop the foot traffic. GREAT EVENT. EPIC FAILURE PLANNING IT.

Educated idiots anyone? They were understaffed. Several thousand drunk people in a holler having a good time until everyone wanted to go home. A bunch of impatient kids throwing fits. A bon fire would of been a good idea. How about a barrel fire for all of the event goers who forgot to watch the weather forecast?
