"ee-mûr-jun-see"

Posted on 2004.10.09 at 23:42
so as i was going to the corner store to get another 1l of coke

(when you're using 151 you often run out of mixer first)

i witnessed at the sports bar next to the corner store, some guy beating the hell out of some girl in the parking lot

i ran up to the payphone, dialed 911, and got

"all operators are currently busy- please hold"

lovely.

at that point the guy looks up and sees me looking at him all concerned and with the phone in my hand and i'll give him the benefit of the doubt that he put 2 and 2 together

so i hung up and walked away

i feel like a coward, but he was close to my height with at least 40 pounds on me and i'm not about to get beaten bloody for someone i don't know

You know what though? You still did more than most people would do, and that's look away and pretend like it didn't happen.

I commend you for taking action, and even more so by doing it the *non* confrontational, *non* violent way. Instances like this are what the police are actually for. Too bad the bastards were too busy to do anything about it. Fucking pigs. They're never there when you actually need them.

i agree. but then, who's to say the cops even were needed ? in all likelyhood they are in that situation for a reason, and it wouldn't have made a difference.

while at a party at the TL, i had to go move my car (you know, the 2am "lets move our cars from one side of the street to the other" tenderloin street cleaning ritual) and saw something similar... some armani'd out guy with a thick (!) german accent beating the shit out of his very beautiful gf.

i yelled "hey, what's going on ?!" and got the obligatory "fuck off... mind your own business" and i responded with "yeah, well in *this* country it IS my business !" there were a lot of other people around, all doing nothing. hell, it was just 1 block down from the TL police station.

then the girl turns to me and moves her tossed long blond hair out from her face, revealing a huge puffy red eye, and says (also in a thick german accent) "no, we're alright" trying to calm me down. then she turns back to him and starts cussing at him in german... and they go back at it.

if it's one right people seem to have in america, it's the right to be completely dysfunctional fuckups. . . gawdbless'em *rolls eys*
