Saturday night (March 24, 2012) a group of friends went out for dinner in civic. Now, I live on the south side so this would be one of the first times going out for dinner and a little karaoke in Civic – but I was pretty excited to visit the “northside” after dark.
After a great evening of dinner and karoake, we left the karaoke bar and to my utter shock and disbelief, I entered into a whole new world…. I saw (in completely unrelated incidents):
- people getting pushed into police cars
- people lying on the cold cement, lying motionless with blood everywhere
- Hundreds of drunk teens falling over themselves
- girls wearing next to nothing.
- cops everywhere!
I was honestly scared for my life….so I found the next available taxi and went home.
Now I don’t have the answers… but I honestly think there needs to be a cultural shift to curb binge drinking amongst uni students…. but where do you begin?
