Right after Kentucky won the NCAA Championship over Kansas, someone had the bright idea to post the Lexington, KY police scanner on Twitter and since about midnight ET, listening to the college students and fans go crazy burning couches, shooting each other, breaking trees and selling weed has been one of the most amazing things I’ve heard since the city of Vancouver went wild after the Boston Bruins beat the Canucks for the Stanley Cup last June.
Since I’ve been listening, I’ve counted three people shot, several small fires, police surrounded by a mob, and someone trying to uproot a tree. All this in a span of 50 minutes.
You can listen in real time as Lexington, KY goes crazy. Crazy. Imagine if Kentucky had lost.
