Concert goers riot at Evergreen College

Posted by David Postman

From The Olympian:

A hip-hop concert at The Evergreen State College ended in a riot early Friday in which a Thurston County sheriff’s patrol car was overturned and looted.

This is sure to bring a round of recriminations for the state's most liberal college. Evergreen has tried to rid itself of an image as a place that cultivates radicalism. One former student is on trial this week in Tacoma for her part in the fire-bombing of a University of Washington lab. Defendant Briana Waters was attending Evergreen at the time of the arson.

The concert was by the group Dead Prez, and some say that band members urged the crowd to confront the police. (I didn't know the group was in town or I might have ended up there. I saw group member M-1 on his 2006 solo tour.)

There are more photos of the destroyed police car here.
