Andrew Poole said it was for a family barbecue
Riot police stormed a 30th birthday party for just 15 people and shut it down, thinking it was a rave because it was advertised on Facebook.

Four police cars, a riot van and a helicopter were involved in the swoop on Andrew Poole's gathering for his family and friends.

He was just about to light the barbecue and had not even turned on the music when the gazebo suddenly started flapping wildly and the sound of chopper blades filled the air.

Mr Poole, a coach driver, said he invited 17 family and friends and two had not even arrived by the time the helicopter was whirring overhead.

Hi NorthernSantuary,

I think this case is a good example of extreme gate crashing (there must be a reality show in there somewhere!)

I've gate crashed a few parties in my time as well!

Best regards,

Steve

A similar thing happened to my 18 year old daughter.

She and her best friends boyfriend 'kidnapped' her for her 18th birthday.
She had a blindfold on and they put a shirt in her mouth. They were in the car clearly having fun as she was pulling it off and joking, then 6 police cars surrounded them and pulled them over.

Thank God none of them were tazed but after my daughter apologized and explained what they were doing she jokingly said well I guess you can handcuff me to make it more real to which the officer replied yes we should. my daughter just glared at him for such a stupid needless remark and he walked away.

The woman police was more understanding but she said yeah we can't do this kind of thing anymore she said it borders on disorderly conduct.

WTF is happening to this place?

you know I think the cops did the right thing...It was for the sake of your daughter...what IF she was really kidnapped? Cops are out there to save the innocent from *******s...Don't forget we are living in the year 2009 not the same as the good old days where everyone in the neighborhood knew everyone..

Great to see the police doing something useful rather than catching criminals
Tossers

Isn't this Trooly Sad... Police, are trying sooo hard to show they are
working hard [to show their worth] that they've stooped sooo low
they are busting into family birthday parties.... Talk about feeling
like sfit... Worthless... Remember a time when one could get directions
from the police... They're now wasting money doing sfit WORK...

This is what happens when there are tooo many, officers....
What, they don't hang around 'donut shops' in full 'riot' gear ?

Sick society we have here, cattle prods, Bullies, murdering people
in a cell, at airports, cuffed. Now, its all about Revenue...

They got to "feel" REAL proud...

Hmm. Perhaps Facebook should be avoided in the future for planning events.

Sigh.
