The monthly JDMST was off to an awesome start with a new venue at a multi story carpark with many hundreds of cars filing in. I was there early and got a good position near the top to watch the incoming cars who were mostly very well behaved (did notice a commodore getting sideways). The meet was building into a huge affair but downstairs actions were building to bring it down in a heartbeat.
The cops who look to be informed of the meet prior were nervously waiting on the side lines with their defect kits, a move that is highly provocative and not necessary. Why they would do this is questionable but could only be seen as a hard handed method of displaying some sort of authority which was not required. Soon they began to pull over cars then unfortunately some idiot high up in the car park launched a bottle towards a parked cop car in the adjacent alley and all hell broke loose. Within minutes the one way entry street was totally blocked off and what resembled a riot squad was quickly moved in. The venue was quickly cleared and any future prospect of another meet here seems unlikely.
A better way needs to be worked out to cover the growing interest in these types of events.
