    Hmmm, let's see... the cops tell the mass of student to disperse and they don't, but instead start a fire and get rowdy. The response by the police towards an escalating /growing crowd looks like it is standard procedure to me. The reporter said the students were acting "peacefully", yet had to admit they put a bicycle on a stop sign (i.e. vandalism), and he didn't indicate the fire/arson in the grass - looks like the students were not as peaceful as indicated. Of course the police won't immediately jump in to a crowd to stop a minor crime, but they realized that big problems start from small problems - so they then took action.He also admitted that the police didn't enter houses, but intimidated people to leave the area. The last I heard, intimidation is still legal. How else are they to respond to a disobedient crowd? The police already asked them to disperse. Should they say "please"? Being outside your house on your own unfenced lawn is considered public property in these cases. Yes, it sucks, but that is how the legal system sees it. (example: if you%u2019re drunk, stay indoors at home%u2026 once you take a step out onto your porch, you%u2019re then considered %u2018drunk in public%u2019.) I suspect some of the students were drunk in public too.Though the students may not like the procedures the police took, I suspect the police were within their legal bounds in responding to this supposed 'peaceful' gathering of a large group of students.The reporter also said that the students were blowing off some steam in the beginning of the video - further indicating that they were not truly peaceful but becoming rowdy - a potential escalating issue/problem with crowds.To conclude, I know police responses to large and increasingly aggressive crowds SUCK, but if they tell you to leave when you're not truly being peaceful, then expect them to do their job.
