Something at Norris/Memphis last night

There was a helicopter and about 10 police cars. Walked down and heard a girl on her cell phone in front of Fishtown Market telling someone on the other end of the line that apparently some kid (who she referred to by name) was arrested for "pulling a gun on a black guy."

From piecing together the scene and from what we were hearing people say, it almost looked like the guy was driving past and some kind of confrontation happened with a group of kids on that corner and one of them pulled the gun and the guy called the cops. Apparently the cops had several kids in the back of squad cars and ended up letting them all go except for one.

Disclaimer: This is about 80% speculation and could all be completely wrong, but regardless, it shows that the corner has not calmed down at all.

NO WAY I'm driving by there AT ALL when it snows. I don't want a piece of ice thrown through my windshield...

Ugh that sucks. Is this the same corner we had talked about staging a neighbors night out to increase the eyes and ears on the corner?

Joe's comment about the ice through the windshield reminds me of winter a couple years ago by that little store on Huntingdon and Memphis...a couple kids threw a snow ball at a car driving by and when the woman immediately pulled her car over and started trying to talk to the kids about how dangerous that way these other neighbors came out of their homes screaming at the woman to get away from their kids and go home. It was drama drama and I was just sure that poor woman who's care got hit by the snowball was then going to get beat up by some crazy moms.

Kids can't live with em...can't convince enough of the breeders to either.

although i don't know what they got arrested for, it's a good thing, i have seen these kids deal drugs and cause trouble before.

We were wondering what the helicopters were doing. They should arrest the parents of these kids too.

Yeah, this is the same intersection of the stabbing a few months back. The Fishtown market corner has become a haven for lame teen thug / druggy hangout action.

Yeah...I walked near there when going to pick up my car at Garrison's last week and saw what appeared to be a pretty blatant drug sale to a guy in a car. That corner comes up enough in various threads that it seems pretty chronic. Hopefully lots of folks in that area are reporting what they see.
