I was at Palmerfest '09.
That sh*t was wild. Like, from being at Palmerfest, and viewing these videos of Woodfest, Id easily say that Palmerfest, if anything, needed to more police interaction.
We Ohioans sure do like to party. Haha.

Come on, man, you go to tOSU. You know firsthand that there are no parties on campus (at least big ones) that don't have at least some violence. In all honesty, isn't that part of the experience?
I witnessed three fights at Woodfest, one of them including numerous members within my own group of friends. That's just how it gets sometimes. I also saw people punching mirrors off of parked cars, throwing empty glass bottles into the air towards large groups of people, etc. Again, that's just how it is. Nobody should expect to go out to one of these "super parties" and expect only peace and solidarity (unless it's the Mirror Lake jump, of course). It got a bit out of hand once I saw people throwing half-empty beer cans at the cops, though. That's when I knew something would happen. And--surprise, surprise--it did.
Oh well. Not that big of a deal. If you haven't had a run-in with the cops during your college experience, chances are, you didn't go to college in the first place.
In your honest opinion, was it worth the pepper spray, or do you think that they could have handled it even slightly different?
