Lubbock Police Deserve Props For Handling Of Broadway Riot
Whatever that "celebration" on Broadway was, it could have been much, much worse.
How much does it suck to be a Lubbock Police Officer? You know they're just as proud of Texas Tech's win as anybody, but then they have to deal with a bunch of jackasses like it's their first beer and first win. These policemen should have been delivering hi-fives and not tear gas.
Things are a little embarrassing right now, but they could have turned tragic quickly. Those fires could have spread, more stuff could have been broke and some people could have been really hurt.
By all accounts, the Lubbock Police Department acted with great restraint and only went to quell the crowd when things got out of control. So, let's take a moment and be thankful for the win, the Tech fans that weren't jackasses and the Lubbock Police who relied on their training to keep Lubbock people and their property safe.
