dancing and violence

party was fun on friday night. Lots of people and fun. At around 11pm I was informed that someone had gotten stabbed in front of the liquor store (the employees were less than concerned). At 3am the party showed no signs of slowing and then the cops came in. The cops didn't have to say anything to anyone people knew to quickly leave.... Far from sober, I sauntered up "Is there a problem?"

"WE'RE HERE ARENT WE? OBVIOUSLY YOU HAVE A PROBLEM"
"YEAH, LOOKS LIKE YR LITTLE PARTY GOT OUT OF CONTROL?"

I was pretty surprised, given how nicely everyone was leaving, then I found out that celeste called the police because of the way our downstairs neighbors split... boy was angry and vicious... then landlady tells me that her daughter (the girl in the couple) has a broken arm downstairs.
shit.
No one saw what happened, apparently she was shoved and slipped... that sounds a little too nice to me so I just used the words 'domestic violence' when people asked me what went down.

So, I was upstairs and obviously missed this, but apparently there was a buncha cops outside and the folks leaving and poppoppoppoppoppop... somewhere between 4-12 shots went off down the block. Cops left quickly, but everyone waiting on the bus was apparently asked if they saw or heard anything a buncha times.

Rough day on a safe block, shit?

Quote of the night: "so.. what?... you all college kids or something?" after the cops stopped acting crazy belligerent....

"No, Im the only one here in college, everyone else works with children." thanks snokilla.

oh and ... cmon archconservatives, you cant call someone in palestine before you push an election and ask them if they think that hammas will win in a landslide?
Sometimes I wonder if Im naive when I think our foreign policy is just astoundingly stupid rather than calculated and evil.

Tomorrow is first day of peace games club.

I think there's a little of both, but on the whole it falls well on the side of astoundingly stupid.
