  • I guess I should clarify that “unlawful assembly” bit to provide some fairness and balance. There was heavy police presence for the entire ride, but then some asshat began shooting off heavy-duty fireworks in a residential neighborhood in the middle of the night, and that’s when police gave the order to disperse. Otherwise, the majority of the riders were at least somewhat lawful.

    I’m still waiting for the police in my neighborhood to give an order to disperse to all motor traffic after the covery of motorcycles with modified pipes disturb my peace and quiet.

    Exactly! I couldn’t agree more. I’m so damn sick of a small minority of vehicles — motorbikes — with these loud exhaust setting off alarms and literally giving me a heart attack when they go by. What is it going to take for the city to crack down on this? Why do we tolerate this at all? There is so much noise which is so hard to do anything about, but this is easy to solve. I believe this is one of the most critical and overlooked issue in livability of our urban areas as noise drives people out of cities (and into car-dependent sprawl).

  • The screaming at public meetings are becoming more common when planning issues are on the agenda. It’s a Tea Party tactic, and they act to shout down anybody who disagrees with their views.

    Not just planning, but parking issues too (e.g., Polk St).
