I should sue China for the butterfly that caused me to bump my head on the bathroom door.

They don't call Indiana the armpit of the Midwest for no reason.

Holy shiat - only JIm Brainard would think of that.

Or sue the police union that guaranteed he'd keep his job.

Someone explained to him what the term 'frivolous lawsuit' means, it seems

I know how to counter the carmel clutch, so I'm good.

Do they still call it Car-a-mel?

Seriously that town sucks

This made for a good laugh.

I used to have body building coworker who could imitate the Iron Sheik, you would swear he was channeling him.

The funny thing is we would be in a bar and some girl would be getting harassed and he would rip off his short and start yelling at the guy" Ready for the camel clutch, I will camel clutch right now."  and the guys would always turn tail.

I'm pretty sure you meant shirt but it's wrestling and the mental picture is funnier if you didn't.

How much extra security does a town need to control white suburbanites celebrating their woke-ness?

/I haven't been there for a few years but I don't recall seeing any black people there
//my daughter's roommate is from Carmel
///she's never really interacted with any black people before going to Univ. of Cincinnati

Me too! He's even Muslim .

Csb: when we met he mispronounced his name. I said, "wait, shouldn't it be X" and he said "well, stupid people say it Y, so I just go by that"

Later...

Me, "hey Y, bla blah blah"
Some 3rd party, "uhh, it's pronounced X"
X, "ya, didn't you know that?!"
Me, "god farking damnit. "

I'm still annoyed at that, 8 years later. He ASKED me to pronounce an ahh like a fonzarelli "ehh" so I did. Then he burned me.

Great guy though.

Ugh I lived just south of Carmel below 86th street near Castleton Square Mall. My aunt and uncle live there and raised two daughters who are most definitely Karens.

It's a white flight area where people have more money than brains.

Minneapolis PD are racist shiatheels. But even they didn't have to give stickers to the "good" blacks.

Haven't lived there in 20 years but doesn't sound like much has changed.  Lived at 91st and Allisonville.

Carmel, IN may be the whitest town ever.

I drove through downtown Carmel on Saturday and Sunday afternoon.  The only protests were people complaining about the line at Sun King Distillery and the drum circle near city hall.  A woman on the Monon even commented that the scene in midtown looked like "lake of the Ozarks" because it was so busy.  So, needless to say, Brainard is full of shiat but that's been true for years.

Apparently there was a gathering in the evening on Main Street and along the Monon.

Any municipal dollar not spent on roundabout construction in Carmel is a wasted dollar.

I spent my teenage years in Carmel.  Those of you saying it is the dumbest, whitest town in Indiana....are 100% correct.  I think I can count on one hand the number of POCs that graduated in my graduating class of 600+ from CHS back in the 90's.  Nothing about mayor Brainard and his suing of MPLS over the protests surprises me, and I am willing to bet the constituency was 100% behind it.  Carmel's unofficial motto would be "I'll sue you", but uttered by a 14 year old white kid, in a snotty tone, about something frivolous, like wearing polo shirts not made by Ralph Lauren.

C.S.B.  When I moved there initially at age 13 and started in the public middleschool (Clay), I was teased  because my polo shirt wasn't Ralph Lauren, so it wasn't "a real polo shirt."   I had recently moved there due to my parent's divorce, from an area in east Columbus, OH where the median income was likely about a quarter of what it was in Carmel.  My dad made good money, but lived within his means and we didn't spend like morons on expensive stuff to impress people.  So my wardrobe at the time wasn't good enough for the kids in that town.  My takeaway, which has served me well in life over the last 30 years, is how best not to give a fark what others think.  Especially rich white kids.

We *might* have some acquaintances in common.  Courtesy of my parents' divorce, I split my childhood and teenage years in the 80s-90s between Shelbyville and Carmel.  Your description is very accurate and has only gotten worse since the 90s, unfortunately.  Brainard has rebuilt downtown Carmel into some sort of Stepford Wives, "idyllic" town (and that's ignoring the actual Stepford Wives area of West Clay).

You think that's bad?  I joined the Navy in 97.  Did my 3 month stint in Great Lakes, IL for bootcamp, along with 12 months of advanced electronics training, then shipped out to San Diego, CA for the remainder of my time in service.   Which was awesome!...
...Then my (now ex) wife decided we needed to move to Minnesota to be closer to her family.  So, I lived in San Diego for about 7 years and moved to Minnesota, in late October...and shortly after got a divorce.  

I still live in MN though, because it is, for the most part, good people.  Plus I met and married a much better lady here, so it ain't all bad <3  But I do miss that '70 and sunny' weather, and the lack of mosquitos, and the beach...

You might be slightly older, as I graduated in '97.  But the area at the time didn't change much from late '80's to late '90s.  I don't know how downtown Carmel could get any whiter than it was.  My best memory of downtown Carmel was waiting till midnight when the city fountain shut off the pumps, then filling the cans that surround the jets with boxes of Mr. Bubble powder and waiting till it switched back on in the morning to see the mayhem.
