Party House of the Weekend

I almost don't want to file this story under Blarney Blowout since Phillips Street is the most notorious party street in Amherst, with any given weekend having incidents like this -- usually more than one.

In fact the overall number of arrests this past weekend was less than an average weekend with schools in session during 2013 or 2014 leading up to that year's riotous Blarney.

Which is of course a good thing.  A very good thing.

Matthew Crosby stands before Judge Poehler

In Eastern Hampshire District Court this morning Mr. Crosby took the typical plea deal offered by the Commonwealth, a "diversion" from criminal to civil with payment of the town's $300 noise bylaw fine.  Plus he has to stay out of trouble for the next four months, aka the rest of the semester.

His partner in crime, Jeremy McGarry, who made the mistake of messing with Sgt Ting, was not in court today but he is expected to be arraigned tomorrow.

Amazing what having adequate police staffing can accomplish.

Is the house white and gold or blue and black?

In order to understand the behavior of these young "men," we must first understand the false ideal they are so desperately clinging to. It is no accident they chose to live right next to Southwest, a place where beautiful young women live. If they lost the tough guy approach (same goes for all other rowdy behavior), they would get laid twice as often and wouldn't get arrested.
