Utah Police Bust Rave Event "Versus II"- *UPDATED* - Video Included

On August 20, 2005, police used brutal and excessive force to shut down a peaceful, legal rave party called "Versus II" in Diamond Fork area of Spanish Fork Canyon, Utah. The police are claiming that the proper permits were not aquired by the rave promoters, but that has since been shown to be false. They also claim to have made many drug arrests, although they often fail to mention thatit was the security guards at the event who were in possession of illegal substances since they were very effective at keeping the event mostly drug-free (especially when one compares the event to rock and hip-hop concerts).
