    Keene, New Hampshire's annual Pumpkin Fest, reportedly always a booze-infused, college-aged affair, blew up in riots last weekend, with dozens injured and 84 arrested after the police shut it down with a military-style show of force. The Guardians' coverage of the event is out today, providing thoughtful explorations of a regular theme in American policing these days: overly armed cops treating citizens as enemies, with tragic results. The Cato Institute's Walter Olson's comments in the article invoke Baltimore, saying that "it's shocking for people to consider Keene, New Hampshire, having militarised police in the first place—this is not Baltimore, not Los Angeles, this is a quiet college town," and that "if police dress up like the public are their enemy; if they were trained in military tactics to treat the public as their enemy, it is easy for them to make a mistake and treat the public as their enemy when they get on the street."
