Riot at Club Manhattan

So, last night Fate, Dissaster, and I went to the Hip Hop Hotties Calendar Search at Club Manhattan. Fate and Dissaster were supposed to perform a couple of songs, but they ended up only being judges because the promoter wanted them to focus on judging. The show was tight. There were some hot hotties in the contest :). Towards the end of the night a riot ("a wild or turbulent disturbance created by a large number of people") broke out. I don't know how it started, but at one point a 6'8" 300+ pound Polynesian picked up a table (I saw the table, broken and on it's side) and started beating people with it. Him and about 10 other Polynesians started tearing the club up and beating up whoever got in their way. When the fight broke out I moved Fate and Dissaster to the back of the club and told them where the back exit was (in case they needed to exit before I got back) and went to try to help. I took a chair away from a Polynesian lady (she wasn't being very lady-like) who outweighed me by at least 100 pounds (I weigh 180 pounds). I told some of the ladies who weren't fighting to get out of the way and moved some of the chairs ("weapons") out of the way. I saw that it was out of control so I went to the back and took Fate, Dissaster, their sister, one of the waitresses, "Mrs. April" (winner of the Hip Hop Hotties Calendar Search that night), and her friend out the back exit. I called 911 when we got outside. All of the Polynesians that were fighting ran away, so none of them got arrested. One brother (black guy) got arrested. So 11 or so Polynesians tore up a club and none of them went to jail. Three of the waitresses got hurt (that's f*cked up). The owner finally (this type of thing happens too often at Club Manhattan) realized he needs more Security.They had 5 security (2 on the door and 3 inside) for 300+ people. We won't be going back there for a while.
