    Rioting in New Hampshire at a Pumpkin Festival.

    New Hampshire Pumpkin Festival crowd turns unruly - CNN.com

    CNN) -- Tear gas and pepper spray hung in the air as police in riot gear descended on Keene, New Hampshire, on Saturday night, trying to disperse a rowdy crowd that brought chaos to the city's 24th annual Pumpkin Festival, CNN affiliates reported.

    "State and local public safety officials are on the scene and have been working closely together to defuse the situation," Gov. Maggie Hassan said a statement. "We will continue to monitor the situation and provide any assistance necessary to Keene."

    Bonfires burned into the early hours of Sunday morning on city streets that were littered with broken beer and liquor bottles, video from CNN affiliate WMUR showed.

    "I am saddened and disheartened at the events surrounding this year's Keene Pumpkin Festival," said Keene State College President Anne Huot. "Despite the concerted efforts of organizers, city officials, police, and Keene State College, there continued to be disruptive behavior at parties in multiple locations around the city, injuries, and property damage."

    Huot said Keene State students bore some of the responsibility for the unruly behavior, but also suggested that some outside the community had billed the event "as a destination for destructive and raucous behavior."

    Authorities weren't able to provide exact figures, but CNN affiliates reported dozens of arrests and the Southwest New Hampshire Mutual Aid Dispatch Center reported multiple ambulances being sent to the scene.

    "I got hit with a Jack Daniel's bottle, like across the face," Keene State student Roger Creekmore told WMUR.

    Steven French, 18, who was visiting from Haverhill, Massachusetts, described the chaotic scene to the local paper, The Keene Sentinel, as "wicked."

    "It's just like a rush. You're revolting from the cops," he told the paper Saturday night. "It's a blast to do things that you're not supposed to do

    Hm. Revolting from police, eh? I suppose that ~$20K car folks are standing on top of, torched and flipped, is harming police. Folks like this are lashing out at their own neighbors, destroying their property, bringing fear to their community. And the justification for defecating on their neighbors is: to lash out at police.

    Takes "youth" to appreciate that line of logic, right there.

    Must have skipped over that class, at school, myself. Twisted Illogic 101.


    EDIT: I wonder if they could appreciate the simple math ... $6K in attorney fees, 1000hrs community service, 30 days in jail, and paying back $20K for the car plus 3x damages.

    The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all.

    I agree with everything you've said, Bob. Thankfully I live on the seacoast. I'll tell ya, I would be pulling some "protect my property" details like the shop owners did in Ferguson if that was to happen in my area! I have a couple of friends who would gladly stand with me.

    I wonder if many of those kids will bear the expenses of their actions. Most likely mommy and daddy will cover it. They'll threaten little Johnny with taking away his cell phone or 2013 car for a few days then sigh with relief when he goes back to school where he's out of their hair.

    I think I've said it before. This rioting mess needs to stop. First sign of rioting like this, the rubber bullets should come out. After the first warning...the rubber bullets should be swapped out... We don't need any more people like this. We don't need people in our society hell bent on destruction. It has to stop.
