Fear and Loathing in Utah. OR… SWAT team shuts down outdoor rave for which, according to the promoters, they had all the necessary permits.

“No one resisted. That�s for sure. They had police dogs raiding the crowd of people and I saw a dog signal out a guy who obviously had some drugs on him. The soldiers attacked the guy (4 of them on 1), and kicked him a few times in the ribs and had their knees in his back and sides. As they were cuffing him, there was about 1000 kids trying to leave in the backdrop, peacefully. Next thing I know, A can of fucking TEAR GAS is launched into the crowd. People are running and screaming at this point. Girls are crying, guys are cussing� bad scene.”

The police saw one guy filming and ran after him, tackled him and his camera fell, and luckily.. his friend grabbed it and ran and got away. priceless footage. That�s not all though. Out of 1,500 people, there�s sure to be more footage.”

“The police were rounding up the staff of the party and the main promoter went up to them with the permit for the show and said �here, I have the permit.� The police then said, �no you don�t� and ripped the permit out of his hand. Then, they put an assault rifle to his forehead and said �get the fuck out of here right now.�”

Meanwhile, that same night (August 20, 2005) in Colorado, Hunter S. Thompson, a fallen soldier in the war against hypocrisy, fascism and boredom, had his ashes launched out of a cannon. Militarism abounds, Soldier’s in Utah play with their guns, stroking their barrels, busting hot little pieces of terrorist rave candy (badges and faces covered) while Thompson mocks them, even in death, with the biggest dick of all.
