What a long strange day it's been....

I cannot believe the craziness that I just witnessed on the street.
I had been nauseated earlier by the sight of two street urchins making out between two parked cars. Imagine emaciated, drawn, skeletal, love and then mix in the crazies. It was disturbing.

Then, as if out of some movie.....3 big guys wearing Puffy jackets and one donning some kind of Rasta hat come cruising down the sidewalk. It's only extra bizarre because they were obviously not familiar faces from the 'hood....cause usually people start to look familiar round these parts. Plus, this was a group of about 6 or 7 guys, so it was really obvious.

Next thing I know, I see one of the guys doing the kicking, stomping thing on a guy on the ground.

That is some scary stuff. I got all spooked calling the cops then realized the futility of it all.
I guess they can rack it up as statistics, but as far as enforcing people to not be violent towards each other, I dunno. It did break up the nice little crack party that had been forming though.

gonna banish all negative thoughts now.

Seriously!!!! What the hell? I am always shocked by these things when you report them. I had no idea there was so much craziness there.

Good for you for doing something even if you felt it was futile. I hate crap like that. I saw 2 guys intimidating and threatning another dude in Bern on a Sunday afternoon. I called the cops as it was about 100 paces out the front door of their HQ and once they got the info that me and the 3 dudes were all foreigners they said it wasn't their problem and hung up on me. Great.

i recognize that car. it saw some serious action that day. for some reason it never tells me these things. i'm just like, 'how was your day?' and it's all, 'oh, same old, same old.'
