The New "Criminal" Menace: Peaceful creative Burning Man gatherings in middle of nowhere
Sadly, this makes me glad I didn't shell out $200-300 for a ticket this year, only to get harassed by
up-tight piggish cops. Hell I can stay home and get that any day of the week.

Police cracking down on Burning Man this year
By jennifer-wadsworth * San Francisco Gate * Friday Aug 23, 2013
Heads up, party people, the cops seem ready to mete out a heavy dose of law and order at the annual Burning Man festival next week.
Startup founder Aaron Muzslaski trekked to Black Rock City in the Nevada desert a little early. He forecasts heavy rains with chance of the heavy reign of law enforcement at the annual pop up art and culture festival-slash-outdoor rave, according to Boing Boing.
“The pigs are here,” Muzslaski wrote. “And uncommonly badge heavy.”
They nabbed a Burner for a car registration violation, he says. Another got a $275 ticket and threat of getting registered as a sex offender for peeing in public.
“In 18 years on the playa, I’ve never seen a more aggressive police presence that what’s been going down today. Deeply upsetting, outrageous stuff.”
