Atlanta blogs today: Deerhunter robbed July 30 2007
We got a friendly homecoming suprise sic last night in Atlanta when Lockett and I got robbed at gunpoint after our show at Lenny's last night.
-Bradford Cox, of Atlanta rock band Deerhunter, was robbed outside Lenny's early Sunday along with bandmate Lockett Pundt.
What is the message here? If you live in a poor or immigrant community and are a victim of a crime, you'd better not call the police, or you will probably spend the day down at the jail while they run a background check on you, regardless of whether you are here legally or not.
-DecaturGuy at Atlanta Public Affairs on local police policies that may discourage Latinos from reporting crimes. (Note, I think the arrest DecaturGuy mentions was in Carrollton, not Cobb County.)
Pimp implies in the Ozone interview that R&B singer Ne-Yo is gay, claims that Atlanta is not in the south because â€œAtlanta is on East Coast timeâ€ and accuses certain unnamed rappers (fans are guessing Young Jeezy) of turning his back on powerhouse label BMF after drug charges.
That settles it. If Pimp C doesn't like it here, I'm moving.
