Riots at James Madison University in Harrisonburg Virginia

“A large crowd of approximately 8,000 people near James Madison University turned into a full-scale riot last week. The JMU riot led to the arrest of several dozen party-goers.

Local police reported that rioters threw bottles at police, who were forced to use pepper spray and tear gas to quell the JMU riot.

Around 30 people were arrested and several were injured by broken glass during the afternoon and early evening. A number of fires were started in garbage cans.”

The Rocktown Rebel website has much interesting analysis about the events surrounding these riots as well as the backlash following the events.
