On 11/20/2010, Stanford won the Big Game. Cal Security attempted to prevent thousands of students from rushing the field. Several instances of unnecessary brutality resulted.

This video is indeed shaky, and it only captures one of these instances. It was difficult to get great footage in the midst of all the activity.

Before all of the students charged the field (which has become a yearly tradition at both stadiums by the winning school), Cal Security beefed up personnel on that sideline. A few of them could be seen pointing back and taunting the students, seemingly provoking an even wilder environment.

It is evident in this video that one of the students who was the first to break free was choked by security. That should not happen under any circumstances to either a Cal or a Stanford student - or to anyone - unless they truly present a danger to the security and the people around them. Many students were riot cuffed by Cal security and subsequently cut free by the real police officers.

The point of this is to ask: is this all really necessary? For the safety of the students, the players, and the security, there should be much better ways of handling these situations.

Students rush the field EVERY YEAR. There is no need for security to amplify a potentially dangerous situation.
