I am all for the event moving the fuck out of Nevada. But you did fail to mention that there was also many law enforcement agencies bussed in from California (and who knows what other states) to the playa this year. Calling BRC09 a police state is an understatement. I sat in front of my camp for an hour this year and watched 5 nevada or federal officers (normal), a Humboldt County Ca. Sheriff, and a Novato Police Ca. officer drive by. And I was all the back to G street. What the fuck is this shit? why are they even allowed in the event. Then there was burn night. I cant even count how many people I saw being arrested. Not to mention the fact that I was followed by undercover officers (very bad at what they did) when I went to go dance at El Circo/Do Lab's camp. When I confronted them and said "why the fuck are you following me, I haven't done anything illegal?" They just walked away and had new officers follow me. I felt like I was being watched for the rest of the night. Maybe next time they can focus their energy on some asshole selling drugs, rather than somebody just trying to dance.

But coming through Gerlach.... the place looked like a movie set for a film involving police states. Hell Kim Jong Il would have felt at home there with the overpowering authoritarian presence. The only thing we didn't see that would have felt right at home was SWAT or APC vehicles. Excessive and oppressive...it's the only way to call it.

Kinetic V wrote:Unjun, what I saw on 447 was that the ratio of officers to burners on the day I arrived was 3 to 1. And once we crossed the railroad tracks and turned into Gerlach, we saw more police vehicles than anything else...literally for every 1 burner vehicle or local resident there was 4 or 5 more police vehicles and I'm being conservative with the numbers. Now granted I came in on Friday...but it made Gerlach feel like a camp for LEO's instead of a sleepy little Nevada town. And when every officer you pass is eyeballing you looking for violations...now I'm not paranoid but damn, when they literally have the window down and are eyeballing you like a pack of vultures checking out roadkill, it's oppressive. I'm simply calling it as my fiancee and I observed it. I wish I had rolled video of it...it was bad.
