Hundreds of party-goers were at "College Fest," a block party on East College Avenue in Kent, when police began firing rubber bullets into the crowds.

Since we were so close, we scooped everyone. No other outlet was even close. We've been footing calls this weekend from almost every major news outlet and bureau (CNN, MSN, Fox, AP, BBC).

I have a feeling we'll get a subpoena, too.
