Jail Rioting Students in Fort Lauderdale

stopped and clubbed in the leg and
head by another officer who said
he was trying to escape.
This time he was taken to the
city jail. He was locked up without
being allowed to make a phone call
or medical attention for his leg
which by then was causing him
severe pain and made him unable
to walk.
Held in Jail
Next morning, after being fin-
gerprinted and photographed, he
and several others were lined up
before a judge. Charged -with un-
lawful assembly and pleading not
guilty, the judge then told him
that he'd have to stay in jail until
April 17 for trial. Nothing was said
about bail.
Figuring that if he pleaded guil-
ty he would get off with a small
fine, he changed his plea and was
sentenced to 1Wsdays.
All this time, the student was
almost unable to walk because of
his bruised leg. "They never asked
me about my leg," he said, al-
though he fell several times.
On March 29 a city judge, un-
der pressure from local merchants
and officials, finally dropped all
charges and released all but one
of the jailed students. 1
Review Case
The remaining student had his
case reviewed later in the week
and was subsequently released also.
He was charged with inciting a
riot and resisting arrest. His an-
tics on a utility pole were sup-
posedly what triggered the dem-:
onstrations Monday night which;
ended after some 225 arrests..
Sunday 'night was a different
story. Thousands of college men
and their dates (those who had
managed to find some), Were
standing on both sides of Atlan-
tic Avenue, heckling the police to
let them cross the street, cheering
their friends when they managed
to get into a car that was not al-
ready full, and bolting the motor-

ists who refused rides, the police
who told them to keep their toes
on the sidewalk and everyone who
didn't cooperate with the spirit of
gaiety that prevailed.
The police had their hands full.
By 11 p.m. the street was crossed
almost every minute by hundreds
who stopped halfway across to
bounce a car. Things began to get
warmer as firecrackers and bottles
flew into the air. When police
blocked off the area to keep traf-
fic out, the rioters thronged into
the street, and sat down. The po-
lice were eventually able to get
them out of the street by running
motorcycles and cars through the
Begin Chanting
The groups then settled on both
sides of the street and took up the
chant, "we want to go to the
beach." Pleas from the police over
the loudspeaker to move out of
the area or face fire hoses merely
brought cries of "bring on the fire
The hoses came, and so did the
police patrol wagon, the state po-
lice, the Dania police from a few
miles down the coast and the may-
or. The firemen were wondering
how they could use their hoses if
they were ordered to, since the
glass fronts to the stores and the
cars in the area would make such
use hazardous and create consid-
erable damage. The mob eventual-
ly broke up when people drifted
back to motels and cars.
Monday night brought a rapid
change in attitude and as a result
many more students ended up in
Jail, students who were responsible.
for no more malice, no more dam-
age and no more noise, than they
had been the night before.
Find Answer
The answer, as the city officials
finally discovered, to the entire
problem was the fact that this
year the circumstances were dif-
ferent than they had been before
during the twenty-five years or so
Lauderdale has been a spring stu-
dent haven.
This year; a book and a movie,
"Where the Boys Are," brought
thousands more curious collegians
along with the inevitable dregs of
high school hangers-on who came
mostly from the local areas.
This year also saw the closing
of a traditional assembly area for
the students,i Jade Beach. This
private stretch of beech front,
property had in years past been
the place where beach parties,
beer drinking, and all night rev-
elry had taken place.
'Open Jade Beach',
This year, the residents had
asked the city to close off the area
because of litter and noise that'
was the inevitable result of such
parties. Thus, for the majority of
the collegians who were ID card-
less, and dateless as well, there
was no place where they could go
by themselves and have a party.:
This was what prompted the cries
of "open Jade Beach" early Sun-
day and Monday nights.
Last week, in comparison to the
first one, was relatively quiet.
