Look at this -- how unbelievably brazen:


YouTube - Brawl at Dodger Stadium v. Phillies (Last Game NLCS Playoff)


YouTube - Dodgers Opening Day- Fight

Good grief, these people aren't fearful of the police in the least.

And nobody could foresee the attack against Bryan Stow? Seriously? When you've got these gang banger sorts admitted to the stadium, how can there not be felonious behavior?

You'd never see that at Fenway or Yankee stadium

Actually I don't see anyone in this video that even remotely looks like a gang banger, particularly with their clothing attire.

So are you arguing that the only fans that should be admitted to Dodger stadium are upper middle class and wealthy white families with children?

It would suck to go somewhere hoping to have fun only to have to deal with stupid drama like that. Grown @ss men acting little girls. It happens everywhere unfortunately.

I bet those fools had very pleasent rides to the police station, after assaulting those cops!

Look, these vids are disturbing, but they are anecdotal. You have to put them in context. Maybe one or two such incidents happen at every game. I bet non-Hispanic whites, Hispanics, blacks, asians, and Pacific Islanders are often involved. SO WHAT??

I'm still waiting for someone to provide evidence that there is a serious, on-going, statistically supportable, escalating problem with crowd violence (let alone gang violence) at Dodger Stadium, out of proportion with any other sporting venue in the country. Till then, I call B.S.

As long as we're accepting anecdotal evidence, here's mine. I went to ten night games last year, saw zero violence, zero arrests, and my family and I never felt less than perfectly safe, in the stadium, the restrooms, or the parking lot.

But then, being in mixed-race/mixed culture crowds has never made me pee my pants either. I'm not sure if that is true of everyone on this board.

While the rowdies in the first clip were overwhelmingly Latino, there were some whites in that crowd and I'd guess that some of said whites were non-Latino whites.

The rowdies in the second clip were evenly split between brown and white. And I doubt all the whites in that crowd were Latino whites.
