A massive fight in downtown Greensboro Saturday night has some city leaders taking a hard look at bringing back the teen curfew.

Nearly 400 people were involved in the several fights that happened along Elm Street.

Greensboro police arrested 11 people ranging in age from 16 to 20-years-old. Officers had to use pepper spray and a stun gun to try to get the crowd under control. Greensboro Police Department had to call UNCG Police and Guilford County for extra help. Some officers minor injuries following the fights. As soon as one fight stopped another started.

Yea! They should have blocked off the area while the fight ensued and ID’ed em all! Then hit their parents with a $1000
Fine. I bet it wouldn’t happen again!

What would you expect? School’s out, it’s the middle of summer, all the summer jobs have been taken, and hanging around mama’s house playing videogames and smoking weed just doesn’t cut it anymore. On top of all that they’re mostly horny, backed-up teenagers. It’s gonna be a long, miserable summer. Watch and see.

There was a lot of individual effort and pride that went into turning South Elm Street into a destination once again and it was quite nice for at least a decade. I watched it turn around, had an office down there.

There's been a turf thing going on for a while, Elm is just west of the historic dividing line between the white and the black sides of town under segregation. The more militant blacks disliked so many white people on “their” side of town. There have been several instances of flash mobs, the sidewalks, once teeming with people on any nice night and slammed Thursday through Sunday, are thinning out.

Two of the biggest bars/nightclubs began catering more to young blacks as a result of this thinning out. These aren't even NC A&T students, who have better sense. These teens are coming up from the projects, they don’t concern themselves with comportment and have no clue that they're going to cause “their club” to go out of business, probably wouldn't care if they did have a clue.

It's a shame. Ignorant to the point of abject stupidity, and a real shame.

It's also where back in the late seventies the assh@oles of the Communist party, et al, planned to disrupt a march of the knuckleheads of the KKK and it turned into a brawl.

Except the KKK boys brought their guns and gunned down a bunch of the reds.... >

Like the ole saying goes:

Never bring a hammer and sickle to a gun fight(or something like that) LOL

Greensboro has in the past been a major center of the Communist Party USA.I wonder if that figures in the current festivities there.

And the Governor just announced the cut-off of long term unemployment benefits.

"The decision of North Carolina lawmakers to cut the amount and length of state unemployment benefits took effect Sunday, stripping federally funded checks from the state's 71,000 long-term jobless.

The U.S. Labor Department says another 100,000 will be cut off in the coming months."

"NC's long-term jobless lose unemployment checks"

Some years back, when there was a riot-a-week in Italy by the Communists, the police would bring in vehicles with water cannons and spray the lot with a dye, then in the following hours/days, arrest everybody who was stained. Evidently they couldn’t easily wash the stuff off.

There probably some obscure law that prevents the same tactic here because it sounds like a good idea.

“Greensboro has in the past been a major center of the Communist Party USA.I wonder if that figures in the current festivities there.”

Negative. It’s just feral youth. And, FWIW, analysis of police reports vs. the news stories show there were not 400 people fighting, only a handful of arrests.

My ex-brother-in-law saw an episode where the word was "deer"

There was a Black contestant, and he was the one guessing the word.

His white partner gave the clue: "doe"

The Black guy responded: "knob"

Sheriff Taylor always knew how to handle them. I have a feeling it might take a more aggressive sheriff to handle this new breed of untamed youngsters.
