When a friend of mine first emailed me about the events inspiring this week’s Dustinland, I didn’t think I’d be hearing about them later on the evening news. But it became a big story pretty quickly, and people I know out in California have heard all about it. So I may not be breaking any news to a lot of you, but I still think it’s worth discussing — especially in light of the NYPD’s accusations. Man, this dude is the last guy on Earth who is going to be standing on his chair at a Yankee’s game, being a drunk, obnoxious tool. But it’s no surprise they lied about what happened. Once the cops came back from tossing out my friend, his buddy overheard one of them telling a fan that he was “cursing and saying this country sucks.” Not that it matters if he said the country sucks or not — that should still be legal — but it just goes to show you that these cops were already making up stories to cover their asses before 10 minutes had gone by. Man, I bet McNulty wouldn’t have pulled that kinda crap.
