No Good Pizza Raid Goes Unpunished
Police, responding in March to citizen complaints, thought they were doing the right thing by cracking down on pizza vendors who were selling pies from their cars without permits.
But as they attempted to arrest the scofflaws, a group of about 150 nearby high school students – apparently big fans of the cheap mobile pizza – attacked the cops, hurling wood, rocks, pipes and insults.
The students then attacked a nearby soda, a small Tico restaurant, that they believed was the source of the complaint against the pizza sellers.
Observed one cop astutely: “This event shows we are in a profound crisis in our schools.”
