You can now read Part 1, Chapter 4: “Newsmakers” from Raving Radicals Bathed in Blax.
In this chapter, we are presented with a newspaper article from the fictional Twin Cities newspaper, the Sun Tribune. Witherslapt and Izzy have just purchased the paper, surprised to find out that a large number of persons died when the rave they were at the previous night was busted.
In doing a little research for this chapter’s subject matter, I came across this very surreal video of militarized police in Utah busting a rave party (which apparently even did have a permit) in 2005, just 2 years after the invasion of Iraq. How quickly the chickens come home to roost!
