Re: “The Birdman Strikes

I had a neighbor who used to throw parties like this starting at midnight. Try getting your todller's to sleep with a live band playing, people standing and walking around laughing, some of the partygoers used the light of my porch to have a dice game. The straw that broke the camel's back was someone firing a gun in the driveway. The neighbor claimed he did it to get everyone to calm down... We didn't believe that... and neither did the cops.
This is a bad idea.
Whenever you have large groups of people together in the same place, there are going to be fights. One of the reasons a concert promoter like Bill Graham was successful is that he hired huge thugs to do sweeps of people in line and the area in front of the concert hall. They made people standing around in front of the place feel very uncomfortable. This was how they nipped trouble in the bud, before it started.
How is this yahoo going to control trouble WHEN IT COMES?
Zoning, a license and mandatory security for events like these arose out of need... not just people acting officious.
I'll bet some of the neighbors are bothered but afraid to say anything, as I was.. until the gunshot in the driveway.
