No police investigation into Halloween brawl

November 5, 2009 - 4:56 pm

brawlF’real, if you haven’t watched this yet, it’s rad.

Just heard from San Diego Police Department: The cops got a call at about 1:30 a.m. on Nov. 1 from 379 Fourth Ave. The caller reported a fight involving 20+ people, which reflects the video. The first officer arrived on the scene three minutes later and everyone scattered. A few were injured—including one guy with a nasty scrape on his head—and an ambulance was called. However, no one, not even the bystander whose rear windshield was smashed, wanted to file a criminal complaint.

And without a criminal complaint, SDPD says there can be no criminal investigation.

    I don’t which is worse: the guy filming the brawl for some 5+ minutes, commenting along the way and even laughing when one guy gets knocked out cold – gee, what great fun! OR CityBeat condoning such gratuitous violence by linking to the video. Yeah, really rad.

    Well…, douche-on-douche violence portrayed as a form of rad entertainment through insensitive uh… journalism (cough) supports and encourages its use. It also makes for a lot of bystanders, less we forget of course…

    Incomparable. No one’s supporting knuckledheads brawling on the street. It’s a pretty incredible fight, though, and but it’s also really silly that, despite video evidence of violence and property damage, no charges were filed.

    Yeah, a giant insane brawl on the street involving people in costumes should not be filmed or seen. I demand that we all wash out our eyes with soap and burn the footage now. CF especially should be ashamed for watching it. Me, i’ll just stick to watching over and over the 2 minute super 8 movie of It’s a Small World my dad filmed in 1974, lots and lots of C-Span, Teletubbies, and the film i made of CF lecturing a bunch of Meerkats to cross their legs when they sit up.

    People fight, it happens. It’s halloween and everybodys drunk. You can’t stop it unless we stop allowing any douche with a gold chain to move here from Jersey/arizona. Until then, deal wih it.
