    this is something a friend showed me. i amnot into this brand of music but the story here is very interesting. im just quoting the thing so you can read and watch the video for yourself.

    "Last night Yah Mos Def played a show in Williamstown NJ. The show was put on by this dude Alan who has been putting on great all-ages shows in the area for a long time. This was at a new venue that was owned by some other older dude. So during the course of the night some kid stole a sign from the bathroom. This was fucked up, because anyone knows we have to respect these places if we want to be able to use them as show spaces. But this was not Alan's fault, just some stupid kid being funny. But the guy who owned the place flipped out and called the cops.

    So while Amateur Party is playing, Alan comes in and says one more song. I guess the cops told him to wrap it up, and he came in to do so. So Amateur Party starts playing the shows last song, and one of the cops says "no, no more music". It is a confused situation. So Alan kind of just stands there and does not say anything, not knowing how to react.

    So from here on out I have it on video. Since Alan does not respond, the cops says "that's it your under arrest and grabs Alan. He says something like "fuck you" cause the cop just grabbed him so hard by the neck, but did not resist or anything. All the sudden 2 other cops run and, and they all jump on the kid. I was fucking insane. People start taking out their phones and cameras and taking out pictures. One of the cops starts yelling "put away your phones", and a kid in the crowd says "this is America" and the cop responds "I don't care, you're in my town now. WTF! He gets in my face and starts telling me to put away my camera or I will get locked up. I tell him to F' off, and that I work for a Law Firm (which I of course don't), but that I know my rights. The kid next to me, who I don't know, spits out the amazing line "I don't mean to be disrespectful, but we have the responsibility as citizens to record this". I love that kid."

    You say fuck you to the cops in a situation like that, thats pretty much whats gonna happen.

    Im not saying its right.

    But you need to be smart when youre in a situation like that.

    I doubt dude can press charges, unless theres better fottage/pictures of what happened.

    i agree with that. when you start givin it back to the cops man, theyll always win. i think saying "But you need to be smart when youre in a situation like that." is exactly right.

    I cussed out a cop before. He got his feelings hurt. He cuffed me and told me i was going to jail. He drove me a couple miles down the street and gave me a ticket to go to court and dropped me off. I had to walk back home. That shit was funny.

    if you got caught doing something you had no business doing the cops around here used to take your shoes and drop you off somewhere, usually on the other side of town or the town over. that all stopped when some lame decided to sue.
