wilco BS: Drunks @ festivals, rationale euthanasia (52* d) RE: BS: Drunks @ festivals, rationale euthanasia 16 May 03


Let's reiterate the situation, since I was there. It was specifically advertised as a "drug/alcohol festival, with zero tolerance." It is very rural, and the law is an hour away. There is a drunk galloping a horse through a festival, with kids and people dodging him. He finally falls off the horse in the parking lot. My first instinct was to help the fool, which I did. Then what do you do with the guy, when he starts to get back on the horse, and do it all over again, despite trying to reason with him. And, he did do it all over agin.
    In urban settings, you can hide in a corner somewhere, call 911, and wait for the law. Not an option all the time.
    The guy also kept telling us that his grandfather was the sheriff, and that "nobody could do anything about it."
    Ready to cover him with honey, turn him around backward, tie him to the horse, and send the horse off on his way in the woods yet?
