Intellectually Stunted NZ Students Riot, Again

Posted by te2ataria on September 12, 2009

Scores of Dunedin residents injured in student riot

Many Dunedin residents and several police farce-rs were injured when riot broke out as pathetic Canterbury University students arrived in the town’s Castle St in their annual Undie 500 drunken car rally.

More than 1,000  students pelted the police and bystanders with bricks, bottles, metal bolts and bicycle parts in North Dunedin.

Dunedin police were forced to don riot gear and use pepper spray to disperse student mobs during overnight partying after the controversial Undie 500 rally arrived in the city.

Up to 100 police farce-rs took  more than two hours to disperse the students. To down play the serious riot however, they only made 20 arrests “for range of offences including disorderly behaviour, breaching the liquor ban and setting fire to property.” A report said.

Council workers have been cleaning up broken glass and other debris and are removing burned out cars.

The police were heavily outnumbered by the rioting students and failed to enforce a liquor ban, the city mayor said.

He hopes there will be no further trouble tonight and is urging anyone taking part in Undie 500-related events not to do anything they will regret for the rest of their lives.

The so-called “Undie 500” event was organized by Canterbury University students, and involves a pub crawl from Christchurch to Dunedin, driving cars worth under NZ$500.

Despite the cancellation of  last year’s Undie 500 event, which was prompted by serious rioting and public disorder in the city resulting in 69 arrests in 2007, an unofficial version of the event still ran leading to another round of rioting and disorder and 30 arrests.

Most of those arrested were Otago University students, Dunedin Area Commander Infector Dave Campbell said.

They faced a variety of charges, ranging from disorderly behaviour and breaching the liquor ban to wilfully setting fire to property.

Police Farce Infector Alistair Dickie said:  “We are happy we have been able to stabilise the crowd without exerting our authority too much … We could have sparked something here… Hopefully, I don’t eat my words.”

pakeha Antisocial Gene

Is it the birds? Is it the planes? No, it’s probably an antisocial gene!

Four-year-old pakeha drink alcohol, while  9-yos use cannabis, new study says.

“The study of 12,000 young people, led by Canterbury researchers, found the onset of drinking ‘goes up very steeply from age 12,’ while many were smoking cannabis by 15.” media reported.

“The study’s Christchurch-based lead author, Dr Elisabeth Wells, of Otago University, said it was obvious New Zealand’s youth were getting caught up in an overall culture of binge drinking.”

“The study, published in the international Drug and Alcohol Review journal, found one in 10 New Zealanders has tried LSD or glue and two out of five have tried cannabis.”

“A lot of 14-year-olds report to us that they are regularly drinking.” Full story is posted at  http://www.stuff.co.nz/4865753a11.html

Meanwhile the un-authorities are burying their tiny heads in the sand as methamphetamine addiction takes the poxy country by storm.

Eggs, rubbish, vomit and feces were thrown during the party
