I don't understand how they could confiscate cash though, unless it was from people caught clearly in the act of buying drugs, there's no proof that it was going to purchase drugs. That could have very well been for merchandise or gas money home if they made a trek.
I don't have any sympathy for the people that thought it would be a good idea to bring thousands of dollars of acid to a Phish concert. I would probably need to do thousands dollars worth of acid to find a Phish concert enjoyable though.
it is part of the culture of their concerts for people to do a lot of drugs.
no one can really defend that with a straight face and say the cops should have f*cked off.
in past concerts, the fans have been spared the shakedowns and the concerts have been non-violent without serious incident. the band was vocal in their protection of fans and letting them do what they want.
the fans got used to this, so in a way they kind of got burned.
again, tough to defend, but the rules changed and no one was informed.
