Last night I went to Olipom's final send off and scored a gang of sunglasses. It's a drag that it won't be around anymore but it's cool that O's gonna finally get some days off.
Skinner was there looking tight!
When we were leaving the fuzz arrived and hassled some skaters that were sitting in front of the store which was pretty cheesy. First they said that they received a complaint about some individuals yelling at passers by from the sidewalk then they said that they were in the area investigating hate crime activity. Either way the kids in front of the store were being extremely cooperative and mellow. It's also curious to me why it takes three cars and six officers to check out a heckling charge.
I can't specifically vouch for what was or wasn't happening at all times that evening since I was inside until I left but on my approach I didn't notice anything particularly rowdy going on nor did I hear anything from inside the store. Once the fuzz arrived you'd think they were called on some serious dispute given the amount of man power present.
It's shit like this that seriously makes me think that there should be some sort of advocacy group that stands up for venues and any other places hosting all ages events in this town. Really, when the police decide to come down on a place many businesses are left with few avenues. Not that I don't have enough irons in my fire but still... something to think about.
