Dozens Arrested After Tea Party Riot

Oh wait, this raucous outbreak of anger and violence didn't happen at a Tea Party? It wasn't a bunch of "angry, wild-eyed" white people fomenting violence? It was Democrat constituents in the bluest of blue cities in the nation?

Well, never mind then.
Scores of gangbangers marauded through Times Square and nearby streets last night, storming businesses and harrassing pedestrians as three people were shot in possibly related violence.

Hundreds of cops struggled to disperse the youths. Police made 54 arrests on a variety of charges, including disorderly conduct.

One man was shot in the ankle on West 41st Street between Seventh and Eighth avenues.

Early this morning two people were shot at 34th Street between Seventh and Eighth avenues. Their conditions were not immediately known. Twenty young men were seen fleeing the scene.

And a woman was hit by a bb pellet at West 51st Street and Seventh Avenue. Her wound was not life-threatening, authorities said.

Police were trying to determine whether the three incidents were related to the disturbances.

A cop trying to break up a rowdy group of youths outside the police substation at West 42nd Street was taken away on a stretcher after he sustained a knee injury.

"This kind of nonsense [on Easter night] has been going on for the five years I've been here," said a security guard at a business on West 42nd Street, who asked not to be identified.

"The police try to maintain the crowd, but while one side of the street is maintained, on the other side of the street, a fight breaks out."
Funny, but I see zero mention of this story in the New York Times, whose offices are right in that neighborhood. Guess they're busy "reporting" on some non-stories and fabricated racial hoaxes perpetrated by Democrats.

Thanks to Ace for the link.

Update: I see the Times finally noted this story with an item posted at 4:27 this afternoon.
