The Burning Man organization sent a formal letter to federal officials on Wednesday requesting that law enforcement put an end to “unconstitutional” traffic stops on the road to this year’s Burning Man event which 80,000 people will attend.
The organization called for an end to law enforcement shinanigans citing “improper and apparently unconstitutional behavior.”
“Many of the tactics are attempts to intimidate and harass travelers who are doing nothing more than passing through the Reservation on a state-maintained highway. This is unacceptable and this behavior should not be tolerated by agency leaders nor the public,” the letter read.
It’s possible feds are targeting attendees of the event after the 2017 suicide death of a man who ran into the actual ‘Burning Man’ fire during the festival’s main event.
