Stupid people are stupid. The link goes to a blog that follows crime reports in Boystown. It’s a special St. Patrick’s edition of all the crime from the Saturday into Sunday that is St. Patrick’s Day Weekend. It is both comedic and sad.
There is no better way to see the true character of a person than to see that person drunk. “In vino veritas” as the Italians say. If a person acts like an asshole when they are drunk, you can be pretty sure that person is an asshole when they are sober but better able to hide it. And, boy, do the assholes come out of the woodwork this weekend. There’s nothing wrong with getting drunk. There’s plenty wrong with using your drunkeness as an excuse to act stupid.
St. Patrick’s Day weekend must be one of the worst to work as a first responder. Every dispatch message reads like this: Disturbance in progress, white male, 20s, wearing green. Fun.
