This is it – one more to go after this! Just reading the “morning” news headlines and since I pretty much covered the fireworks and some of the post-firework hoopla in the podcast, here’s the ‘official’ word.
It was also another busy night for Vancouver Police. Constable Howard Chow says there were over 430 liquor incidents compared to 260 on Wednesday.
He adds there were six fight calls, seven weapons offences, everything from pepper spray to knives, 19 arrests and someone firing off some pepper spray. [News 1130]
And some people were getting a little crafty…
Constable Howard Chow says one man sprayed pepper spray into the air as peple were leaving through the west end. One group of people decided to try and out-smart police by hiding their booze in the waters of English Bay, but police spotted them and confiscated their liquor. [CKNW]
When we were walking back the other night someone tossed something onto the street from a balcony, it crashed into the middle of the road and although I never saw what it was, I’m glad no one was hurt. I like the fireworks, they are a part of summer, but there’s always ‘one of those people’ in the crowd that ruins it for a lot of people and heaven forbid, endangers others as well.
