swat at rave

Knick from Evol Intent:
“..A few “troops” rushed the stage and cut the sound off and started yelling that everyone “get the fuck out of here or go to jail”. ..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…”

This summer similar things happened at the Czechtek rave in Europe:
“on 30 july in Mlýnec, Czech Repuplic over 1000 police men from the special forces stopped a legal rave counting 6000 party people. the toll: two deaths and 100 injured.” taken from bleak blog. -> Pictures

  1. that shit is freakin scary man. obviously the patriot act in full function. secret police shuting down gatherings of the people “turn the camera off!!! turn the camera off!!!” they want no records of things like this. god i cant wait till these facist get the fuck out off office. deep down i would like to think of the people who run the american government as human beings and they will someway learn to understand their lust for greed and power is wrong and justly change their ways. but…. ill just leave it at that.

  2. cant think of anything worse than raving – tis 2005 for goodness sake. putting all the political stuff aside; tis time we all grew up, behaved like decent human beings when we listen to our music (yes leave whistles, glow sticks and fluro clothing at home)… and just shake it like anyone does to nice sounds!!!

    anyway, who needs to rave when we have calibre’s 2nd lp is dropping in a few weeks?

  3. I’ve said it more than once, and I’ll say it again. F*** tha police!!!!!! Let us enjoy ourselves and our music in peace!!!!!!!

  4. HUNTER S THOMPSON R.I.P.

    This is exactly the kind of police bullshit that the great Hunter was fighting against throughout his life. Its sad when this kind of facist nonsense is still going on in the supposed land of the free. America needs a good kick up the ass, as long as they keep voting for greedy corrupt whores and jesus freaks then this is what u get.

  5. this shit happened in uk most weekends ten or so years ago.over the top cheesey dramatics i love it,so they missed out on evol intent and subfocus,id rather listen to abba.

  6. Fuck America. I am leaving the US, eventually. It might not be the worst place to live, but there are SEVERAL better places to reside.

  7. 1989 the number another summer get down
    Sound of the funky drummer
    Music hittin’ your heart cause I know you got soul
    Brothers and sisters, hey
    Listen if you’re missin’ y’all
    Swingin’ while I’m singin’
    Givin’ whatcha gettin’
    Knowin’ what I know
    While the Black bands sweatin’
    And the rhythm rhymes rollin’
    Got to give us what we want
    Gotta give us what we need
    Our freedom of speech is freedom or death
    We got to fight the powers that be
    Lemme hear you say
    Fight the power

    true say this stuff happened over hear during the late eighties but we still raving hard hey!!
    stiff upper lip an all that folks!

  8. it has to be said that utah is one of the most conservative countries in the usa, but that doesn’t excuse the behaviour of the authorities.

  9. It really boils my blood when I hear about some guys who tried to put on a legit, totally legal, and well planned event get there night ruined by a bunch of fascists. I hope that the law enforment involved gets their asses sued hopefully think twice before they mess with a bunch of good people who just wanted dance and have a great time. There are people trying to change things over here, it’s just going to take a little time, and no more George W in power.

    My thoughts and positive vibes go out to those innocent people who were abused that night. MAKE YOU VOICES HEARD.

    Hopefully one day all of America will actually realize that the dance music culture is worldwide and is hear to stay no matter how many clubs or parties you try to raid. Go and bust some meth labs instead….

    LET US DANCE!!!!

  10. This is what its coming to folks.

    Theres no trust, no sense, no justice anymore.

    They are acting like animals driven by fear.

    And these people represent the highest order of martial conduct in the world?
    I think not.

    Why would some one in flak gear carrying a fully automatic weapon backed up by their similarly attired/equiped team members attack a girl for no reason?

    One answer: FEAR.

    They are scared of people.

    Especially large groups of people.

    Their minds are continually thinking about violent encounters and terror.

    So when they are called into action they dont/cant make distinction between normal people and those who pose a threat.

    THE PERFECT SOLDIER.

    NO QUESTIONS.

    NO MINCING ABOUT WITH ANYTHING TRIVIAL LIKE OHH LETS SAY FEELINGS OR RESPECT FOR A FELLOW HUMANBEING.

    They have been conditioned to the point of not being able to distinguish.

    Watch the video and think……..

    Who are these people?

    Are they like me?

    Could I be like this?

    They had dogs,teargas,tasers and guns.

    Not to mention tactically out doing a bunch of KIDS essentially by force and organisation.

    Oh yeah and they have night vision a helicopter and bullet proof vests.

    COOL.

    :P

    SWAT YOU ROCK!!!.

    No actually FUCK YOU TO HELL.

    YOU FUCKING FACIST BASTARDS THAT ARE INFECTING THIS WORLD WITH FEAR AND USHERING IN A NEW AGE OF CONTROL.

    Wake up people and realise this is only the beggining.

    If some stand isnt taken in UNITY then we will eventually be supressed.

    The ‘”legal channels” avaliable to you are useless.

    How can they work when they are routinely violated by those who “represent”
    that form of “justice”?

    Petition politicians,form websites,email the CIA,FBI government and appeal to their sense of HUMANITY before it is to late.

    Communicate with your brothers and sisters in the same position overseas.

    Create your own frameworks and report your own “truth”

    REALISE that the “system” of news,media,corporate entities,law,politics,government etc…are all tied together and cant be objective and go against each other.

    Tell your friends,parents,childern,family,teachers ANYONE!!!

    DO YOUR OWN THING – DONT RELY ON THEM FOR “JUSTICE”.

    The hippies and early ravers and anyone who has throughout time stuck their neck out and done something distinctly non conformist has/have been treated with the same violence.

    Why?

    Two reasons:

    1. They are “fringe” enough and have had their cause/purpose/stance/ethics/morals sufficiently warped enough by the media and the hysterical society it feeds hysteria for them to have become easy scaepgoats and peole for whom the need for a “war” to be “fought” against has become nessecary.

    Just read the history of counter culture America.

    Look at what happened to early British ravers and mobile communities.

    2. Because the music and mindstate is genuinely not understood or appreciated by those in power.

    Of course its downright HATED!!!

    We are going to be treated the same as the hippies,blacks,gays,communists or any other minority who has crossed the ideals of the “great ??!!FREE!!?? state” in the past.

    Except we havent had time to get together and discuss what we represent i.e. liberation,freedom,equality etc….like the hippies or black people in the Civil Rights movement.

    Why?

    Because that same media has fed us a LIE that says these concepts freedom,liberty,justice etc…are all relative and fleeting and imaginary.

    WTF???

    BULLSHIT!!!

    EVERY HUMAN BEING KNOWS WHAT IT IS TO BE EQUAL,FREE AND TO HAVE
    KNOWN JUSTICE.

    Why else?

    Because that same media has kept us obsessed with “reality” TV and Nike and bullshit meaningless sports and bullshit meaningless “wars” on “terror” and “drugs”.

    And now YOU SEE when we do someting that the greater media machine cant GRASP with its MONEY MAKING GREASY FINGERS IT CENSORS US.

    It controls our activities untill they fall back into acceptability.

    Believe that the governments of the world will enact police states and create societies that would make Orwell turn in his grave.

    Its the natural response of a society ruled by fear.

    Dont fuck with major labels.

    Produce and stay “underground”.

    Be anti conformist.

    Confront these issues in you hiphop,graff,dnb,web design,poetry etc…

    Train yourselves mentally,physically and spiritually.

    MEDITATE ON PEACE AND SELF CONTROL.

    WE ARE GOING TO NEED IT.

    GLOBAL PEACE LOVE RESPECT.

  11. F**k this bullshit, let’s keep politics out of this site, alright? I don’t live in the USA but that stuff could have happened anywhere. Actually in many countries every raver would have been shot and nobody would have talked about it

  12. no politics in dnb… ok… what about movement, expression. community, one beat one people. sounds like the fundamentals of all these is freedom. and all politics is, is the fight for or the fight against freedom. Maybe all u lucky people who have lived in a country were this music and subculture has been around long enough to be chew up and blasted on every media outlet from gov run radio to shoe commercials. might not remember what this all means. but 10 to 15 years ago EDM was a movement for the people.” jack had a groove” I was there in the chicago area, were this music started… but to all of u this music might be just a backdrop to get your swerve on. and thats fine but please know your history. your fight to breath freely is political in nature no matter were u live. and if any innocent person gets shot anywhere people should care or we are gonna have big problems. peace

  13. Where the Raddy man (SWAT) looking for me, damm I thought the war on terror was against us Muslims, shit you lot (west) are getting shafted as well.
    I wonder has Bush gor another agenda for the DnB massive.

  14. WELL WHAT CAN I SAY, THE SYSTEM IS GETTING US DOWN. THEY DONT WANT US TO PARTY BUT THEY DONT MIND US KILLING OURSELVES WITH LEGAL VICES.

    THEY WANT US IN OUR OWN LITTLE CORNERS (TUCKED OUT OF SIGHT AND MIND BUT STILL PAYING THE BILLS LIKE GOOD BOYS AND GIRLS)

    ALL I CAN SAY TO THE USA POLICE AND STATE DEPARTMENT IS

    “YOU KNOWS YOU ARE A BUNCH OF NUMPTIES SPA”

  15. NO RESPECT POLICE IN POLAND…NO RESPECT POLICE IN EARTH……. __JAK TO SIE MÓWI W POLSCE……HUJ W DUPE POLICJI……..PEACE.

  16. Fuck hurricanes! Our power has been out for 7 hours so far. Though luckily enough I have a laptop with 2 batteries and a Treo 600 with PDAnet so I have internet access for a few moments every now and then. I know this has nothing to do with this thread (though I am an ATL native and some of this discussion came from 404audio.com) but this is the only site I actually post to anymore. It’s pretty shitty around here, lots of wind and rain. When I drove home from work and saw lots of trees down and a few branches and whatnot all over the roads. When I wake up tomorrow I will ride my bike down Fort Lauderdale Beach (3 blocks away) and take a whole slew of photos. If anyone is interested I can link you to the photos that I will eventually upload. I was suppose to fly to San Jose (very close to Silicon Valley) to visit my brother this weekend though I doubt I’ll be able to catch a flight Friday after all this crap. We’ll see. I hope Tim isn’t catching any of this shit down in Jamaica.

  17. jesper, i live in silicon valley….send me some pics to.. if your in my town hit me up…or email

  18. back to the subject of music. ive sent tim the link to download shy fx on the next chapter, however that was a week a half ago.
