They have a ton of extra police at Sturgis every year. It is too bad tha bikers have to put up with these A--holes who have nothing better to do than cause trouble. The bikers will be provoked and if attacked will respond and be arrested. Seems a shame to lock up a bunch of peaceable people having a good time. Maybe Sturgis Town Council should pass a no mask law.
Stay in the French Quarter and you're safe enough from the cops during Mardi Gras. Not so much before, after or if you leave the area
