    Ok across the street from it. News said a 17 yr old female who worked at fair booth was grabbed by arms and neck and pulled into car. She had mace in hand and sprayed attackers. (and got free)
    What I was amazed (sarcasm) was they did NOT say what race the attackers were...
    Description of car but nothing (useful) on what they looked like. I guess she must not have seen them. She had visible bruses on arms, neck (so reporter said)
    IIRC MN State Fair did mention yrs ago they were no weapons. (have not been there in over 15 yrs)

    When I was in 4H I got state fair trips 4x. Always carried a knife. Was there once after out of 4H. Still stayed in 4H building (upstairs 3 high bunks) but that time I was responsible to sign myself in/out. So I was out on grounds late. I took a gal there for grandstand show couple yrs later. Didn't care for atmosphere after fireworks. Too many folks I prefer to avoid. Very loud, groups, trying to start something.....

    A friend of mine has a nurse for a sister. She was walking to her car at night last year and was attacked/robbed/grabbed.
    She pepper sprayed the guy and started beating the hell out of him, keeps beating him while she was on the phone with 911.
    She was kicking him in the nuts over and over when the cops showed up. And didn't stop just cause they showed, cussing the guy out like a sailor.

    He says
    "If you don't stop, I'm going to have to arrest both of you"

    I avoid fairs. There are always people who look like trouble when I've gone in the past.

    I was told I can't go to the fair by myself; we have to meet at the clubhouse and all go together...

    word for the wise. when the race of the offender is omitted, you can bet your ass they're not European-Americans.

    The no firearms rule has not stopped me from packing at the Indiana State Fair. The fair does have a strong State Police presence but they can't be everywhere. The large parking area is not patrolled much.

    ...and then there's "Last Night" at the MS State Fair where open season on whites is a long standing tradition.

    We have the fair later this week. I guess I better keep an eye on the youg'uns. I was planning on going over to check out the chainsaws, tires, ATV's and such while they rode.

    the real trouble is always outside the gates. the problem with the No Weapons policy is you can't carry from the street to the fair.
