Great write up...I'm sure it's also hard for local businesses to speak up in regards to the ban for fear of reprisal from locals, which sucks.
I do think a ban is the wrong idea. Also as much as it's the residents decision and the what occurred on the 4th was completely in the wrong, the local police force knew that 10th tends to get out of hand especially on holidays and could have been more pro-active. This isn't a blame game and I certainly don't blame them for the actions of the individuals out on the beach, but there are many things that could have been done to keep this from occurring.
A ban on alcohol is the wrong choice.
