BLM rangers arrest a man riding a scooter - burning man 2012

BLM Rangers arrested a guy who was riding a scooter on the playa at night.­ Riding a scooter (and any other unauthorized motor vehicle) on the playa during the event is not allowed, and this guy should have read the rules.­ Plus, he had no helmet.­ He probably got a hefty ticket.­

I saw a lot of abusive police action on the playa this year, but in this case, they did their job right.­

Burning Man is yearly gathering of about 70,000 people, many from the San Francisco Bay Area, celebrating love, life, passion and art during one week in a desolated desert in Nevada.­

The event takes place each last week of august in an immense dry lakebed called Black Rock Desert.­ A temporary city is built where about everything is permitted except violence, money and commerce.­

The culmination of the event is the burning of a large human-shape figure in a giant bonfire, hence the name (Burning Man).­ The city disappears completely at the end of the week, leaving no trace.­
