Middle Class kids and the joy of tertiary education rioting


Alt Tv/Fleet FM Breakfast News Comment
Middle Class kids and the joy of tertiary education rioting
Canterbury University student leaders will meet with the Undie 500 organisers on Monday to discuss the weekend riots in Dunedin. More than 50 arrests were made, couches was set on fire, and bottles were thrown at police on Saturday, after the annual student car rally from Christchurch to Dunedin. Association president Belinda Bundy says it appears the Canterbury students don't know how to behave themselves, and they have to take some responsibility for that. She says it is likely the event will be canned. Once upon a time middle class Uni students were the social conscience of society, taking protest to the streets to confront the Government over issues of social justice and forcing Police to rush around to around to protect the US Embassy or the local National Party Headquarters, these days however students take to the streets to burn cars and sofas and start stupid drunken fights with cops who have MUCH better things to be doing than being forced into baton charging pissed Engineering students doing the Haka, ah – the joys of Tertiary education – tomorrows lawyers and doctors and accountants, mummy and daddy must be glowing with pride.

If the cops had better things to do than this, then they wouldn't have spent all year planning it. Were you there bomber?

Are you suggesting the cops forced this situation as a real life riot practise? I don't like cops, but that's a fairly huge claim to make

What kind of imbecile would blame the cops for this? How dare they stop people burning cars and smashing other peoples property.

Imagine the outcry say had this happened in South Auckland and it was a bunch of youth gang members who took over a street, burnt cars then threw bottles and attacked cops when they turned up.

Middle class N.Z would be up in arms instead of saying boys will be boys as they do in this case and blaming the cops.

Does the fact that the police, in full riot gear, emptied the occupants of nearly every flat along castle street out onto the road at around 7.30pm. Apparently to try and "avoid trouble". I'd be fuckin annoyed if I was having a few beers with the boys and the police came and gave me one around the ears with a baton and ordered me out of my flat, and didn't let me return at all that night.

Presumptuous lot.
