Well done LAPD
 
So the Lakers won the championship in a last minute comeback. YeeeHaaa!

And then the fight started.

Crowds had been gathering outside Staples center waiting for the celebration. Almost immediately azzwipes started trouble. But this year LAPD was ready. The cops had massive numbers with riot gear on, helicopters overhead, and full deployment of their mounted division. I was watching on live news as they lit the first bonfire. PD formed a running V formation that cut through the crowd like a knife. The scum scattered like roaches in the light. Fire department was right behind with extinguishers. The PD moved the crowd out and when they took a standoff PD fired rubber bullets. More roaches running. There were still pockets of trouble with cars damaged and some windows broken. But the LAPD was quick to show up and move the lowlifes along. Quite a few arrests were made, some injuries and a couple of fights, but all in all given the crowd of 20,000 plus the LAPD did an excellent job.

In fact the worst violence seems to have been at my house. Some dumb possum tried to get at our orange tree and Roscoe tore him up. No worries though. I think the possum was a Celtics fan. He had the beady eyes and weasely looks of a Celtics fan. And Roscoe has a cool new scar on his face to show for the battle.

Hey Jo, glad the cops had it under control,I just cannot understand why residents of a city would destroy their own community to CELEBRATE!!

I guess Roscoe gets an extra treat for gettin rid of that Celtics fan!

The sad thing here is the simple fact that a riot was expected. That really says something about the condition of society.

I'm sorry to hear about Roscoe's battle scar.

Thanks CA.
Roscoe didn't seem to even notice the wound. He was just upset I wouldn't let him bring the damn possum in the house. :eek:

Of course the "mainstream news" did not say anything about the would be riot because LAPD did a good job. It is only news when it appears LE screwed up.
Give Roscoe a pat on the head for me and tell him the big mean man won't try to scare him again;)
