Last week I tweeted/f'booked about the cops knocking at my door and asking if I had heard anyone fighting outside the building the night before. Later that afternoon, post police visit, I was surprised to find my front door had police crime scene tape across it and the police had the sidewalk taped off with crime scene tape.
I asked the local corner deli if they knew anything. They told me some guy had hurt his head either by falling or possibly by getting into a fight. That guy was Sandy Thelamy.
I don't know what unfortunately happened to Sandy Thelamy the night before and I don't know Sandy.
Sandy is now dead. As it goes, his head was cracked open.
What I do know is I hear people outside my windows almost every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday night with their drunk courage/stupidity acting all hard, arguing, threatening and also harassing women. And let's be honest, the crowd that invariably comes to this hood on those nights is from uptown, the boroughs and jersey. LET ME REPEAT, LET'S BE HONEST! You know who goes out on a Friday, Saturday night in the LES getting hammered and for the most part it's not the locals. You wanna argue with that? Then meet me in front of my apartment building and take a god damn census this Friday.
I'm not sure why I'm posting this. Part of me feels sorry for Sandy and part of me doesn't know if he was part of the problem. So I guess I write this in the hopes that somewhere out there in the universe someone will hear my plea for all you dumb fucks to stop acting like a bunch of...dumb fucks. We all like to have a drink and have a good time but really? Cracking some guys skull open?! Like I said...dumb fucks.
Pray for rain.
To wash away the blood on the sidewalk.
