Thread: Cops at Coachella

  1. #601

    Default Re: Cops at Coachella

    I went First Weekend.

    I saw two guys getting arrested in the Do-Lab right next to me after they had sold some dude something. Three undercovers were on them like no other, poor guys weren't even resisting. I felt like taking off all my clothes and causing a distraction, but maybe that was the LSD.

    I was asked atleast five or six times for coke, a few for molly and I was offered drugs tons of times! But I never sold anything just because I was paranoid. Undercovers are super easy to identify; they are wearing cargo shorts, loked, have backstage wristbands, and sunglasses and are scanning the crowd. Usually in pairs. The other kind of undercovers are higher up then they are in the Police chain, usually wearing khaki slacks and a button up bohemian t shirt. Usually they have ear-pieces and radios. And they are always over 20 years old at least.

    Then there are normal cops, and you would have to be spun as all hell to not realize them.


    There presence definitely killed some of the energy for me, but mainly it was just custy ass holes who think it's perfectly fine to push all the way to the front of a crowd only to squeeze right in between you and the person next to you.

    I was asked one time for drugs by a camping neighbor. I don't understand how so many get asked so often in the campgrounds, I was mistaken for a burner so many times yet I wasn't hassled for drugs once besides the time a friend referred a neighbor to me

    I was up front in the guest viewing area at Dre and Snoop and noticed the guy to my left had a radio tucked into his hoodie that he kept trying to listen to by leaning his head onto his shoulder. He blended in very well and was a total boner-kill.

    I sitting alone against the barrier between the food area and the Outdoor Theater, and this guy who is about 24-25 comes along with this big old plastic bag full of blunts and asks me if I want to buy. To be honest, I really did-- but I had no money. And it's like... how could you sneak in a giant bag of blunts? He gave me his number, and I didn't call it just in case. There were plenty of other people around me and he didn't go to them for some reason.

    Spotted a couple undercovers, earpieces gave a couple away and the others were just too obvious with their condo. You have to either be very bold or a cop to walk through the middle everyone's camp asking them if they need "hash nuggets". Others probably slipped by, the fact that i don't do any drugs probably kept me out of trouble though.

    I got separated from my two friends on Friday and it turned out that they had tried to buy pills off an undercover. Handed over the money and everything so they got arrested

    If true, your friends may have an entrapment defense to their arrest if they did not initiate the transaction.

    If an undercover comes up to you and offers to sell without you initiating the illegal transaction, that is entrapment and a violation of your 5th Amendment right against self incrimination.

    I was in the Sahara doing Porter Robinson yesterday. This guy came up next to me wearing a shirt, shorts, and looked like a typical bro. Then he raised his right forearm to his ear and next to all his kandi was a small portable walkie talkie. I definitely avoided him after that.

    2 security cops walked into our campsite while we were rolling joints and demanded all of our pot and threatened to raid our tents with drug dogs and kick us out. one of them was holding a glass bong that they had taken from another group.

    we ponied up our bag of weed and the j's we rolled. they didn't believe us and demanded the rest of our weed (that was all we had). After explaining to them that we gave them all of our pot they looked at us and said..."haha just kidding, here's your pot back. next time burn in the tents."

    my friend turned to one of them and said "you just scared the fucking shit out of me" and after they made us pour our liquor into plastic bottles they went on their way

    That night several bros were busted by the bro cops.

    As I walked in on Sunday of weekend 2 to see Santigold, I saw a kid in handcuffs being walked somewhere by a bigger dude, black tshirt and black shorts, sunglasses, basically the standard "narc" look that's been described on these boards before. As he was walking him somewhere towards one of the stands by the ferris wheel, he allowed him to stop and talk to his friends who all looked like they didn't give a shit that their friend was getting arrested, it was the weirdest thing.

    On Friday our group wanted to see SHM and I was not about it, so I went dolo to see Amon Tobin. We had walkie-talkies with us so that our group could find each other easily (they were the kind the cops walk around with). I felt like everyone kept giving my dirty looks the whole time I was alone, and I just couldn't figure out what I was doing to give off a bad vibe. Guess I looked like a Narc with my Radio, sorry everyone, I was to messed up to realize.

    If you haven't learned by now....DON'T SELL DRUGS AT COACHELLA.....

    if you have extras and want to give them away...you'll be fine....if you go to sell...they're hunting for you.

    seriously....if you are there for the music have fun and stop trying to make a few bucks.
    Just when I think you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this…and totally redeem yourself!

    Heh. So usually i'm wearing cargo shorts and a tank top and have this giant shit-eating grin on my face, and i'm over 20 ... so i risk being mistaken for a narc, is what you're saying. :{

    maybe with weed, but a cop sees you handing out acid or pills i'm pretty sure they'll take you down.
