Idiots abound.

Well, some jagoff broke into The Co-op again. This time it was a total destruction mission -- windows smashed and shit spray painted on the walls, but apparently nothing was taken. They did, however, cut themselves pretty badly when they broke the windows; apparently Debbie and Allisyn spent the morning mopping up the blood from the sidewalk. From what I hear, there was a blood trail heading toward Braddock.

The word on the street is that this was the work of the same jerks who busted out the windows at quietstormpgh a few nights back.

The graffiti they left here, in addition to your standard issue circle A anarchy symbol, said something along the lines of "There are no good corporations: Stop [illegible] buying ..." In my personal opinion, it comes off less as black bloc and more as wannabe -- more as something somebody would do if they wanted to see the anarchists get blamed for it. I suppose I could be wrong, but to me this screams either bored teenagers or CIA bullshit.


ETA:
And thanks to pghwob for providing me with this bizarre little link.

Also, I ranted about this all in the pittsburgh community. Check out my rant -- I use the word "bougie."

political or anti-political vandalism
I agree about corporations not being "good," but the stuff about not buying sounds more like some kind of lifestylist adbusters crap than what I thought it might be about -- namely, anti-labor policies and support of gentrification.

I think you're being too hard on the kids -- if it is in fact, kids -- in your rant. Clearly, there has been much to be upset about with the state of things in Pittsburgh, and the Co-op and Quiet Storm are representative of some of those things. Of course, I favor a more "constructive program" through worker and community empowerment.

Yes, well, that's because you're bougie.

everybody's a writer...
From that same story I found:

"How dare they say they co-op board's
No better than the police?
They'll pay to bust a union
But they sell nutritional yeast"

Um ...

And what's with all the photoshopped blow job pictures? That was bizarre.

Incidentally, my Father found and shared with me the Post-Gazette article where Lt. Reyne Kacsuta, the same genius whose name appears as the arresting officer for 90% of The Pittsburgh 122, is quoted as saying that the destruction at Quiet Storm was "... a case of criminal mischief" that was "... not in relation to anti-G8 sympathizers ..."

O RLY?
