Let's question why there were police horses involved to begin with....it was a parking lot and the people were staying there and not wandering off creating mayhem.

Where are the video's of the violence that prompted this reaction by the Police?

Do you wonder where the News Media and all their cameras were while this was going on?

I agree with you that wouldn't warrant the response they gave. and it seems foolish to claim that coming closer with the loudest thing on the block would make a loud hailer more effective??
Perhaps they should have realized before the low alt, low speed, low intelligence pass that they were going to blow stuff around?

If you googled 101 ways to disperse drunk American students, I will put money on a helicopter not featuring in the list.
This really was a yippy Kay yay moment.
Only in America.

Not really. I remember a picture of a federal police „Cougar“ (or smilar seize) hovering over the heads of a bunch of demonstrators ( demonstrating against the construction of a nuclear power plant) in Northern Germany in the early 80s.
A lawyer used that picture in court to demonstrate the difference between „careless and reckless“ flying of a newscopter flying in 500 ft vs. the „federal police style“. Case dismissed
