"Early in the morning on Oct. 22, a Saturday, Ms. Zucker, 21, and her friend Alex Fischer, also 21, were stopped by the police in Riverside Park and given tickets for trespassing. Mr. Fischer was permitted to leave after he produced his driverâ??s license. But Ms. Zucker, on a visit to New York City with a group of Carnegie Mellon University seniors looking for jobs in design industries, had left her wallet in a hotel two blocks away.

She was handcuffed. For the next 36 hours, she was moved from a cell in the 26th Precinct station house on West 126th Street to central booking in Lower Manhattan and then â?? because one of the officers was ending his shift before Ms. Zucker could be photographed for her court appearance, and you didnâ??t think he was going to take the subway uptown while his partner stayed with her at booking, did you? â?? she was brought back to Harlem.

There she waited in a cell until a pair of fresh police officers were rustled up to bring her back downtown for booking, where she spent a second night in custody.

The judge proceeded to dismiss the ticket in less than a minute. "

#3

W. Virginia


#4

Texas


#5

be careful if you visit a Safeway in Hawaii.


#6

You liked Thelma and Louise didn't you?


#7

Boston, well Massachusetts in general.

The city sucks and is jelly of NY to an unreal level, plus we are all assholes.

Stay the fuck away.


#8

Stay the fuck out of Baltimore, Chicago, and Philly at night if you aren't a native.


#9

They killed themselves.

Causation?


#10

They did not want to go through Texas. Just saying.

EDIT: to be clear I am in no way implying you should kill yourself.


#11

On that note, specifically, New Bedford, Ma

unless you want heroin, aids, and awesome seafood then you've come to the right place


#12

Since I'm not in Texas, I have no reason to kill myself.

#14

Stay out of Cali at all costs.

(they make you check your brain at the border)


#15

I like Boston. Except of course no one, other than Bostonians, can understand them.

Say your 'r's' dammit!


#16

So this accounts for your posts?

:slight_smile:


#17

Hilar!


#18

It would seem that anywhere where there is no LEO is the place to visit in the US. lol

I have visited the south the most and I think they have the nicest people, but then again I'm white and I hear that makes a difference in the south.

Now, Philly sucks dick.
