Comment: large crowds

(See in situ)


large crowds

In the late 90s I owned a party bus company. I had a group of folks on a bus when we arrived in downtown Cleveland for a game where we were stopped by FEMA, yes FEMA.

I was shocked, yet aware of government weirdness, so I said what does a party bus have to do with your flood and mud organization ?

The FEMA guy who stopped us said that any event with crowds of 10s of thousands of people was considered a national security event and they took over local policing .

And again, this was in the late 90s.
