Wikinews: Rave Broken Up By Swat Team in Utah

http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/Dance_party_broken_up_by_police_in_Utah%2C_USA

...A first hand account from a DJ booked to play at the party stated that while police were arresting a man accused of possession, the suspect was beaten to the ground and continually "kicked in the ribs" by four armed "soldiers" dressed in camouflage. According to the account, nobody resisted the policemen, and was orderly but tear gas was thrown at the partiers as they attempted to leave as instructed. The DJ also states that police were attempting to confiscate video equipment, but an amateur video has still surfaced on the internet (see sources below). Based on the low resolution, automatic lighting adjustment, and low audio quality, the video appears to have been taken with an amateur device....

Amateur video (FLASH MOV format)
