Arrested!?  Not like just asked to leave, but arrested.  What the actual fark?

Mayor Adams will end up facing the music.

Leave the musicians alone.
Go find a mime and kick that guy's ass.

I'm very much against this.
Now I'd understand if they told the guy with the bagpipes at Grand Central to give it a rest...

If they touch Geechee Dan or TMZ they'll start a riot. Hell Leo P is a world famous jazz saxophonist. That would not be a good look.

"America bans abortion and jazz like its 1918" is gonna be the headline.

What is it with NYC electing such shiatty mayors?  All the people in that city, and this is the best they can do?

I saw these guys playing in the same spot. Bought a CD. Why shut them down? They aren't in the way, and some people really enjoy it.

The guys with five gallon buckets and a pair of drumsticks can knock it off, though.

I mean, it was a red letter day for me to go see them on tour after freshly moving to San Diego. Wonderful guys and insanely talented. Hell of a show.

So they decided the issue to tackle was musicians rather than the people getting shoved onto the tracks. Well ok.

I'm as libby lib lib as they come. Adams is a complete failure. Shouldn't have the job. Thought he was lib/dem, turns out he's just fronting his ass off while slapping people with his very weird agendas.

Buskers give cities vibrancy and soul.  Street and subway musicians are as old as cities.  Leave 'em alone and maybe have the cops do something other than hassel people providing a bright spot in a dreary grind.

NYCs liberalness is vastly overrated. A lot of people think that because it's a diverse city and votes blue in elections, it translates to local politics as well.

A city that re-elected the likes of Giuliani and Bloomberg is not a liberal paradise. Staunchly Democratic, yes.

The subway isn't the place for drips constantly falling from the ceiling either, but I don't see you doing dick about that.

Reluctantly agreed. You're 100% correct. It's been a long time since I was back (Former NYCer), you just have to look at what happened to the Village and similar areas for that to hit home.

Mike_1962:

Street musicians and so forth make an area vibrant.

That vibrancy attracts cool young people to the area.

The cool young people live there and shiat out kids till they're old people.

The old people don't like the racket the street people make.

They ban street people.

The street people go somewhere else and that becomes the new cool place.

Rinse, repeat.

Not sure if it applies to a subway system, but I've seen it happen to particular stations.
 
2022-07-02 8:48:09 PM  
Is this going to be like that time NYPD planted wallets in subway stations and arrested people who picked them up, even though they weren't actually breaking any laws?

I would absolutely love to see Democrats lose their shiat if U2 got arrested in the subway.

Nah, it's fine. Farkers have assured me that most homeless people prefer it because they like doing drugs.

Buskers are often the only thing that make places like that interesting.  We don't really have cool subways like in Stockholm, for example.  I've never seen one that was doing anything other than performing and trying to earn a little cash.  This is some BS.

NeoCortex42: What is it with NYC electing such shiatty mayors?  All the people in that city, and this is the best they can do?


How some of you haven't realized that progressives don't actually show up to vote is beyond me. They love to march, complain on the internet, and write biatchin songs but they have always refused to do the one thing to actually put people in power that want to change things for the better because *insert tired excuse here*.

So in return even in liberal strongholds you're gonna have to settle for who the candidate the "Minorities should have rights but if the cops rough up a few people that's okay" crowd votes for.

Because Adams is an authoritarian and these people aren't respecting his authority.

Here is a link to the original arrest video along with a thread of who the man is and an NYPD response.

And a link to his GoFundMe.

When I was commuting to SF there was the BART troubadour. He was on the train and was actually pretty good. He always got off at the last Oakland station because if he went to SF he would be arrested. He screwed up once and when we hit Embarcadero Station he ran across the platform to a waiting train. It didn't matter where it was going. That is easily solved once he was gone.

I saw the Scientology people set up in SF once. They told I looked stressed and wanted me to do the hand thingies. Looking back I should have done it then tell them I am an SP. My golden once in a lifetime chance and I blew it.

Progressives are Schrodinger's Scapegoat:

Somehow few *and* numerous.
Somehow needed *and* not needed by the Democratic Party.
Somehow overly-impassioned *and* apathetic.

All depending on what narrative moderates want to spin.

You don't get to even run for mayor unless the NYPD is at least ambivalent to your continued existence.
