Cops had to use pepper spray to subdue brawling bathers as yet another fight shut down Williamsburgs star-crossed McCarren Park Pool on Tuesday.
A YouTube video of the incident shows a chaotic melee, with shouting, swearing youths surging and pushing towards a cluster of cops who have a suspect on the ground.

can’t seem to get the video to play...but then again, I think I know what I’ll see..

Move along nothing to see here just Black yutes doing what comes natural,you can take the boy out of the jungle but you cant take the jungle out of the boy.
Wish I had time to go to a pool. But I'm working to pay taxes for this and the bank bailout.
I'm still trying to fathom how they could let the water get dirty enough for no one to notice, let alone the end-of-day sweep the life guards are probably supposed to do.
OTOH, it's a muni pool in MA. Union hacks related to somebody.
I think you’re right.
