Where else were whistles blown to subdue the general population in history?
A 34-year-old Muskego man said he was riding on the Ferris wheel in the midway with one of his children when he heard shouts of “fight” sometime after 7 p.m. He saw a big group of people, perhaps 200 to 300, gathered around a brawl.
“I’ve never seen anything like this in my life. . . . There were so many people you couldn’t see who was fighting. There was just this big group that kept growing and chanting, ‘Fight, fight, fight,’ ” he said. “That lasted for one to two minutes.
Then when security showed up blowing some whistles,
all of this mob started running. It was like a herd of cattle.”
