Denver 4/20 Pot Holiday Bringing Crowds, Tight Security

DENVER (AP) -- As tens of thousands of people gather to celebrate and smoke marijuana in Denver, police will be out in full force.

But it's not the pot smoking they're concerned about at the yearly event, billed as the nation's largest April 20 celebration. Instead, police say they're focused on crowd security in light of attacks that killed three at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

"We're aware of the events in Boston," said Denver police spokesman Aaron Kafer, who declined to give specifics about security measures being taken. "Our message to the public is that, if you see something, say something."

Organizers say the event - which drew 50,000 people last year - could bring a record 80,000 this year, since it's the first celebration since Colorado and Washington voted to make pot legal for recreational use.

shots fired

looks like one guy hit. probably some wannabe gang members starting trouble. denver has a gang problem that needs to be dealt with. if the corrupt cops can't handle it then we should do what the vigilantes in mexico do. the mexican gangs have been growing out of control here for years.
