For Syracuse Police, the focus is on controlling the chaos expected during and after Saturday night’s game. Massive crowds spilled out onto Marshall Street back in 2003 when SU won the National Championship. Syracuse Police were there to try and contain rowdy fans.
This year, Syracuse Police will beef up security not just in the university area, but around the city. The biggest difference now is that there are dozens of closed circuit cameras in the university area, monitoring every angle of the celebration.
Police share a clear message with fans: celebrate responsibly, or be prepared to face the consequences.
Syracuse Criminal Defense Attorney Don Kelly of Tully Rinckey PLLC explains some of the consequences of criminal activity that could occur during riots such as the one in 2003.
