Rainbow hippies arrested after Nederland brawl
Boulder Daily Camera

Five members of the “Rainbow Family” — the loose-knit band of hippies that
preaches love, peace and harmony, and is best known for its huge gatherings every
July — were arrested Tuesday night by Boulder County sheriff’s deputies after a
violent brawl broke out at the group’s Nederland campsite.
Deputies responded at about 6:30 p.m. to a report that a fight had broken out
among a group of about a dozen people camping out in the area of Ruby Gulch,
located on state Forest Service property along the Peak to Peak Highway between
the towns of Nederland and Ward.
When deputies arrived, witnesses said one man, a Nederland resident aged 34 or 35,
was hit in the back of the head multiple times with a shovel and possibly stabbed
in the neck during the fight, Sheriff’s Sgt. Brian Lindsey said.
Some witnesses reported a second person being stabbed, although no other victims
were located, Lindsey said.
“No one could tell us who was stabbed,” Lindsey said. “We still haven’t got much
information.”
The injured man, whose name was not immediately released, had to be air-lifted to
St. Anthony Central Hospital in Denver. He has not been able to speak with
investigators about the incident, Lindsey said.
Soon after the fight, sheriff’s deputies and Nederland police contacted a bus
filled with as many as 12 people leaving the area of the reported fight, Lindsey
said.
Andrew Joseph, 24, was arrested on suspicion of felony assault and menacing.
Three others — Patrick Register, 25, Jaron Smith, 30, and Jerry Mullenix, 34 —
were arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor assault for allegedly being involved in
the brawl.
Ari Perlman, 34, was arrested on an active warrant, Lindsey said.
Sheriff’s officials said everyone allegedly involved in the fight were part of a
“splinter group” of Rainbow Family members who earlier this month were kicked out
of a campsite in Pinedale, Wyo., after the group became “very violent.”
Lindsey said about 100 members of the larger gathering have so far made their way
to the Nederland area. Authorities, he said, are keeping their eyes on them.
“They’re coming out still,” Lindsey said. “We always have patrols there. Every
year, there have been problems (at the campsite).”
In 2006, a member of the Rainbow Family angered over another family member’s
refusal to help him “regulate” others camping at Ruby Gulch stabbed him in the
neck, according to the sheriff‘s office.
Joshua Sunchild Silva, known by his Rainbow name of Karma Chip, faced first-degree
assault and felony menacing charges in the stabbing of Gilbert Hernandez, 31.

I think I put a smiley face on the title by accident. Doesn’t really match the article.
Oh well.


They said it was a local that got stabbed I’m kind of curious what went down.

I noticed the paper had pics from the 16th, I think that is today. LINK

Maybe someone will post a rainbow version of what happened. lol
But I don’t know the library made it harder for non-locals to use the Internet.

Hello I am an individual who has been camping with the "rainbow" tribe in the woods near Nederland. It is with my deepest regrets i extend my condolences to the people hurt and their families. It MUST be know that those involved were expediently dealt with by local law enforcement and that in now way do any of the neighboring camps condone encourage or support such behavior. We want a safe place and are not affiliated with the "shut up and eat it" kitchen who was involved with the scene. We fear retaliation in a blinding passion and must reassert the facts.
We love everybody
We do not want violence or alcohol
We are peaceful
Now that the perpetrators are incarcerated hopefully soon things will reassume a lighter perspective and allow the rainbows to represent themselves well (individually)

Was this, perhaps, Sister Bob's idiot brood, those "Death Camp" kids?

Yup..... worded in a way that it points to shut up and eat it....

I went down to Bolder and was there about this time last year. one of the few places I went to while I was back in the states.

Met their crew up at that spot and would say they were a good bunch of kids.

alcohol did seem to be a big factor at that site and was for the 3 months I was in Boulder.

Honestly.... I would have to say that the camp was pretty far from being "rainbow" but it really does not matter... as anything that happens up there gets pinned on Rainbow anyways
