UMassD Students: “F*** The Police”



A stepped up police presence at UMass Dartmouth didn’t stop students from celebrating the Red Sox World Series win over the Cardinals, but it did spurn some resentment towards law enforcement.

In 2004, campus officials were caught off guard when the Red Sox won their first World Series since 1918, with students happily rioting across campus, toppling fixtures, setting off fireworks, and rough-housing. The rioting cost over $100,000 in damages to the campus.

Wednesday night, however, there was an extreme police presence with campus, local, and state law enforcement officials patrolling the campus, and keeping crowds in check.

Earlier this week, campus officials warned students of an increased police presence, and asked the student body to keep celebrations civil if the Red Sox won the 2013 World Series.

Large crowds, loud cheering, and body surfing was about the extent of the celebrations at UMass Dartmouth.
