POLICE CHIEF PRAISES PHISH CROWD

I was very pleased and very appreciative for the cooperation of the crowd. They were very pleasant to deal with. I’ve been in the business for 33 years, and I can’t ever remember dealing with a crowd of that size that was so pleasant to deal with.

Brad LaRose Essex VT Police Dept, acting chief, on Phish’s Wednesday concert where ZERO arrests were made on site.

phisherman that is great. pretty typical i would say, contrarty to what i am sure many believe. i would love to see a record of violent crimes that resulted in arrests at phish shows compared to other bands without all the negative press regarding the arrest issue. i bet it would be eye opening.

Bungalow_Bill At my first show, a guy turned to me and said "I love you man!". Have not seen him since. But would give him a hug when I see him again. Nobody can touch that.

hillarysdillery So happy to hear some kind words for the Phish community, especially when I witnessed a lit cigarette being thrown at a cop at this very show. Let's be human people.
