Bike Party = Unlawful Assembly

Please read my update that kinda sorta apologizes for this sensationalist blog post.

I was at my usual place near the Bike Party start Friday night with my camera shooting shady troublemakers like these.

Normally, one or two motorcycle police might accompany bike party. I shoulda figured something was going down when I saw a dozen motorcycle cops from three different agencies cruising down Stevens Creek Boulevard. Around midnight, the Santa Clara Sheriff Department declared an unlawful assembly at one of the regroup sites and dispatched a helicopter ordering the unruly mob to disperse.

You can view my entire set of nearly 400 photos over at Flickr over here, or you can view them as a slideshow here. I see now that it’s taking forever for Flickr to load that set of photos, so I’ll probably make the slideshow into a YouTube video later this weekend.

Thanks for looking!
