Me and MT1 just got in from riot control duty over in the lovely town of Amherst...600-800 students thought it would be fun to celebrate the Pats well-deserved win by setting things on fire, throwing bottles and setting off fireworks. Well, the MSP and the UMass Amherst police begged to differ with the student body. After things got out of hand in the quad, B-Troopers, SERT, STOP, K-9, UMass mounted unit, UMass Amherst Officers, and UMass Amherst Riot Control decided to take control of the situation. We formed a skirmish line and pushed the obnoxious students back into their ratholes, while the STOP Team and Amherst Riot Control pelted the troublemakers with pepperballs. We had the quad back under control in under thirty minutes, with no injuries to the police. I have to hand to the UMass Amherst Police, they are professionals all the way, and I was proud to stand the line with them at my side. Everyone did a great job, and it probably saved the University a lot of money in property damage and injuries. This is the definition of State and Local cooperation. Its nice to see when the chips are down we all stand on the same side of the thin blue line!! Kudos to all the units involve, everyone did great work!!
