Wild party not Trinity's doing [4 stabbed, gun fire, at "stop-the-violence" party]

ALBANY -- A "rogue" now-former security guard at the Trinity Alliance was behind a large party that erupted into a brawl and ended early Saturday with four young men stabbed, a Trinity official said.

Trinity CEO Harris Oberlander said the so-called stop-the-violence party -- which was advertised on fliers and on Facebook using the organization's former name, the Trinity Institution -- was "totally, totally a fraudulent operation that had nothing to do with any of us."

Oberlander said the party organizer, whom he declined to name but said had worked at Trinity for more than a year, has been fired and that the not-for-profit plans to press charges against him.

According to the organization's security system, the employee let himself and perhaps as many as 300 people inside Trinity's 15 Trinity Place headquarters at 10:57 p.m. Friday, Oberlander said.

At some point afterward, the employee became alarmed at the size of the crowd and told Oberlander he decided to "shut it down" and called police, Oberlander said.

Just after midnight, police were summoned to reports of a large fight in the street outside Trinity and four young men -- ages 14, 18, 19 and 20 -- with wounds from a bladed weapon, none of them serious, police said.

Within the next hour, officers heard gunfire ring out twice on nearby streets, though nobody was reported hurt.

"Everyone knows what a cease-fire is. SNUG is guns spelled backward. Lisa Good, Jamel Muhammed and Harris Oberlander are leaders of a SNUG/Ceasefire team that views violence as a neighborhood public health problem. Based in Albany at the Trinity Alliance office in West Hill, they aim to stop shootings and stabbings and retaliation."

Thuggery appears to be genetic and contagious. Once a thug always one.

I guess some people have no interest in stopping the violence.

No pics and no descriptions of the bonnets and wide brimmed Amish garb.

Ever notice that a lot of these “stop the violence” gatherings end up in gunfire or other riot type behavior?
