Chaos erupts in crowd at NYC 'Top Model' auditions


news.yahoo.com

NEW YORK – Three people were arrested and six others hurt Saturday after bedlam broke out while they waited to audition for "America's Next Top Model," police said.

Police didn't know what prompted the chaos involving hundreds of people outside the Park Central New York hotel in Manhattan. The panic left the street outside the hotel littered with shoes and clothing, according to news reports

I wouldn't normally post something like this but look at that videoooooo.

Does anyone know what happened here? It's as if there's a stampeded of elephants coming their way and they all start running in panic.

I've never seen anything like this in a city area.

Anyone know what happened?

Man, it looks like the cops took someone to the ground, and then others jumped on some of the cops and then they got taken down...

Whoa. Intense!
Someone trying out the new mind control toys on a mass of people?
Very weird...

To me it looked like they opened the building door there in the center and people just started running to get in, then all the pushing and shoving started fights.

I needed ear plugs just to listen to that vid!

The NYC audition was cancled i believe after this,

CNN mentioned that someone yelled "FIRE!!!" and that's what started the melee.

No confirmation on that just yet.

Self centered women who want to get on TV to become rich and famous. I am surprised it hasn't happened before on this phony "reality" show. When you consider that many of them had been severely dieting to get in shape for the audition, it is no wonder there was a riot. It's a Barbie world, full of plastic girls.

Not sure why this is on ATS though. Unless you can point to a conspiracy or perhaps that Aliens were involved.

I guess they heard Beyonce's "I'm a Diva" song one too many times.

People will act outrageous for reality TV.

Probably the usual crap, herd a few thousand people into a tight space, throw in some riot police and a few provocateurs, then tell people how violent and dangerous they all are and ramp up fascism, for their protection, obviously.

That said, if that was for Top Model auditions, I would say that would have been the most superficial yet well dressed riot in town!

Crazy how a simple reality tv show audition can turn people into savages eh?

I've read a few reports in the past that they only allow so many people to audition per center, that might be why were seeing what happened today.

I think Tyra will have her work cut out for her this time around.

Another testament to our very under-developped society.

Good job folks!

Sadly, this makes sense in a misguided country full of people hopelessly locked in a cult of jock and celebrity worship. This is kind of sick. The cognitive dissonance that this inspires for me is troubling. On one hand, I feel like this would have been a good place to drop a bomb, and on the other hand I feel sorry for them. I realize that they are misguided young women who have families that would grieve for them if that were to happen. Whoa. This is just strange.

The news report I saw (ch 7 news, Aust) said that a BMW broke down, someone claimed there was a bomb in that car. People just freaked, trying to get away.

...it's a sick sad world...

You know, those women were all starving to death! Low blood sugar, nerves, many divas I'm sure. Still, I guess we all like to see a cat fight every now and then.

i think it is possible that this might be orchestrated, in that the incident might be used to bring in more restrictive laws on public assembly. i also think that is more probable that this type of behaviour is indicative of group response to a possible threat in a post-911 world, particularly in NYC.

Uhm... it's pretty obvious isn't it?

Mob mentality at a level the police said they had never seen?

Hello!? McFly!!!???

Alan Watts spoke about riots?


When was this? I've read "What does it Matter" of his, and so maybe it was someplace else, but this is news to me.

Could you provide some support for that please?

Could you please point to any country at anytime in the history of the world that this statement doesn't apply to?

I'm so sick of people who believe today is so worse than any other time as far as where our values are...

People, our values aren't any different today then they have ever been... we have ALWAYS been obsessed with celebrities and jocks!
