NEWS: Riot At Dead Prez Concert

I'm a little bit in between Eskay's glee and SoulBounce's pessimism on this one. A riot broke out at last night's Dead Prez's Evergreen State College. There's definitely some chuckle-worthy elements to this story, and really 'F*ck The Police' is quite an excellent song (listen below).

Kiro TV reports: "Police said a band called the Dead Presidents was playing at Evergreen State College when a fight broke out within the crowd at about 1:30 a.m. As a campus police officer responded and tried to make an arrest in the brawl, she was surrounded by a crowd of concert-goers. Police said as she struggled to remove the man from the crowd, the band onstage started playing a song called “F___ the Police,” and the audience became increasingly agitated and combative. Washington State Patrol Trooper Brandy Kessler said the crowd surrounded the officer’s car, demanding for the arrested man to be released. The officer called for backup. Thurston County deputies responded and removed the campus officer from her car and released the arrested man. When a deputy’s car failed to start, the crowd overturned it, breaking out windows and ripping the car apart. Officers were pelted with rocks during the melee. Officials said a deputy's laptop computer and a radar gun were stolen. No weapons were lost. One officer was hurt by pepper spray in his eyes." (Source)

Eskay comments: "Call me irresponsible, but these kinds of stories make me smile. dead prez were performing at a college in Olympia, Washington last night when a brawl broke out in the crowd. When a campus cop tried to arrest one of the people involved, the shit hit the fan. [...] When the officer was trying to leave the venue with the suspect, dead prez started performing "Fuck The Police." I love it. (Full post)

Soulbounce comments: "This will surely be another blow to Hip-Hop, as pundits like O'Reilly and his ilk will once again paint all rap artists with the same, tired, brush." (Full post)
