    Would somebody please tell the Mateel where we live, its the SOUTH FORK Eel River here at Benbow. The Eel River is 18-20 miles East of Garberville, about 40 minutes using Alderpoint Road.

    @WTF, it’s a Reggae festival, not a cartographer’s convention. Attendees would be lucky to know what planet they are on when it’s all said and done.
    Of course, YOU could always inform the Mateel of their geo-challenged press releases. Geez…

    I went two years ago and got GHB beer and raped right in the crowd. Reggae on the River is very dangerous, it’s not how it once was. Tons of gang people come up from Oakland and steal, rape, and kill for drugs.

    Has the festival changed? Yes. Is this the reason? “Tons of gang people come up from Oakland and steal, rape, and kill for drugs.” No – we have plenty of homegrown criminals right along with our ‘homegrown’ weed. We are as responsible for our part of these changes as we are for our part in the toxic algae in the river.
    Don’t be a racist tool.

    The only attitude or potential violence I experienced was from the Park Rangers who were looking for a fight by aggressively confronting vendors and artists after the show. One racist ass went around trying to goad people into a response to his threatening behavior. What an unbalanced psycho. How do people like him get into law enforcement?
    Fearful people are always excusing the actions of the police by claiming that they are the first one’s we call when there’s trouble. But the truth is they only bring violence. If violence is needed, then go ahead and call them.
