Thanks to everyone that made it out to the DIRTYRICHMOND x HollywoodCemetery Halloween Party. We estimate that there must have been at least 200 people there. For the short time that the party was going on, I had a great time, and saw so many wonderful costumes. Thanks to my friends on Parkwood for hosting the party, Philip White of FTDPOTW for doing the sound, and Jawnii and Flute for amazing sets.
Obviously it is illegal to have any sort of fun in this city and the cops abruptly ended the party around 11:45. In the four years that I have been living in Richmond, this is the most aggressive that I have seen them in a while. I understand that parties are loud and can be annoying for neighbors; but seriously, the cops took things way too far. One of the cops yelled at one of my friends, and falsely accused her of pushing him when she only touched his shoulder. He made her cry, and there is a huge size difference between a 200 pound policeman, and a 19 year old girl that is dressed like a baby.
We were able to donate $50 to riderichmond.net, an online forum for Richmond’s biking community. See you guys next time at Dirty December Part II!
