    G20 at PITT

    Aight so for anyone is interested in the riots that took place at PITT during G20, I personally experienced them and let me say it was insane.
    There were thousands of cops on the campus (no exaggeration) who trapped students and ordered them to disperse.
    Cops from different sides of campus were giving contradicting orders which forced students into awkward positions and led to over 180 arrests, a shit load of tear gas, people being shot with rubber bullets, microwave guns (used on people including myself), ear piercing LRAD sound cannons (first time ever used) and cops throwing students and kicking them in the face.
    Personally, I was returning from work and walking back up to my dorm and was hit with microwave rays and pepper gas.
    Hands down one of the craziest weekends over here next to the Superbowl Riots

    Also students who were arrested now face repercussions from the campus' court system which could result in suspension or termination from the University.

    The only way you are going to make this game more appealing to the public than it was before is if there are on field orgies at halftime and the domes become massive opium dens."
