    I have finally read the whole thread. It can be closed and deleted now. Thanks for your participation!

    I've actually been thinking about how much larger events with much rowdier crowd members don't become riots (or melees or whatever...) I go to Sturgis for the rally regularly, the numbers are always estimated in the hundreds of thousands. I think there's a bar every 15-20 feet. Try to argue that a 19yr old college kid parties harder than some of the bikers. While there have been incidents in the past, it is generally pretty tame. Is it b/c no one is rushing in to stop the party? Or that the police presence is very visible? Or an older crowd is just more responsible? (Jimlad that last one, go watch one episode of Full Throttle for examples of way too many bad decisions being made by "adults"...)

    I think it's now about whether you'd rather be hit in the head by a full beer can or a stop sign.

    Wait, maybe that's the other thread.

    I think this is partially true. Additionally it isn't as 'cool' or whatever to destroy things when you get older. There isn't the desire to do stuff like that or be a part of something like that. Additionally the older you get the more you realize the consequences. People were being destructive because they thought they could get away with being destructive. (some will get away with it) And finally older people tend to weigh what they would lose more heavily than college age students.

    The people that engage in these destructive activities, are people who think they won't get caught (or worth the risk of getting caught) and think others will be impressed or entertained by their actions. Their rationality is limited to the present. They do what they think will be the best or coolest thing for them right now. #YOLO

    So, why this year? And why on a Tuesday? And why didn't we see cars tipped and poles knocked over last year? Does it mostly come down to nice weather during a late VEISHEA?

    Earlier when people were talking about the one video and the dope who was out dancing/inciting people...they got him:

    Also arrested was Mark Ribbeck, 20, of Ames, on a charge of harassment of a public official.
    Huff said Ribbeck stepped out from the crowd into the gap between the crowd and police officers and began dancing around and taunting officers, causing the crowd to get even more riled up.- See more at: http://amestrib.com/news/ames-and-st....HGSIkTKC.dpuf

    Although I guess this was at 11 P.M. though, not the middle of the day.
    They were probably saving their hours for later in the week.

    Nice weather really helps.

    Looks like David had the worst charges filed against him so far. Going out with a bang.

    Attempted tearer apart the street sign guy made a good move by turning himself in. Cited instead of arrested.
