DA: Alleged Halloween bat basher really got into his role

A Fury: (via)A Fury (via)When Carmen Picardi of Everett bashed a woman in the head with a baseball bat early on Halloween, he wasn't just dressed as a baseball player - he was made up as a member of the vicious, pinstriped Furies from the movie "The Warriors" - the Suffolk County District Attorney's office charges.

Picardi, 39, was ordered held in lieu of $75,000 bail at his arraignment today for an early morning beating outside North Station that left a woman in a pool of blood on the sidewalk, the DA's office reports:

Prosecutors allege that Picardi swung a Louisville Slugger baseball bat at a 21-year-old Medford woman, hitting her in the head and causing serious injuries that required about 50 staples to treat, while wearing face paint, a dark wig, and a baseball uniform - the dress of the "Furies" gang from the movie The Warriors.

Prosecutors say Picardi and three pals then got in a cab, but the driver ordered them out because he was a Brookline driver and so not licensed to pick up fares in Boston. The driver later helped police identify Picardi, the DA's office says.

Innocent, etc.

        The weird part of this is

        a Brookline cab driver turned down a fare because he was in Boston. That never happens!

        WTF? Um, what was that about out-of-control college kids again?

        Or is this just another one of those losers who used to go into the city to beat people up because they thought the city was a place to act like a gangsta? Only, one that never grew up?

        Pay Attention Much?

        Just ask certain city councilors - "out of control college students" seem to be the culprit of choice for many of the city's ills.

        College students buying drugs

        College students buying drugs bankrolls a lot of crime in the city. But no one really wants to talk about that.

        I've heard some chatter about noisy parties

        And it doesn't offend me much, probably because I attended a lot of wild parties when I was in college. I would wager that if you took a survey asking people if they had attended a large, loud gathering (say, 30 or more people) in the last week, in a non-commercial setting, at which more than 80% of the attendees became legally drunk, and then asked them their age and occupation, you might find that college students (or, at the very least, college-aged people) are more likely than any other group to have attended such a gathering. Doesn't mean only college students drink to excess, doesn't mean only college students have large, loud parties that disturb neighbors- just that statistically they attend and/or throw these types of gatherings more often than people who are older, have kids and/or other responsibilities. It's something these awful, bigoted, party-pooping city councillors probably remember having done themselves when they were younger, but now they have to field the phone calls from constituents who say "a bunch of [apparent] college kids are keeping me awake and pissing on my lawn", etc. I don't really understand the attempt to create the sense of some kind of victimhood or persecuted minority status for college students.

        Yeah- I see it all the time.

        Bingo Swirlygrrl. Groups of guys coming downtown Thursday night thru Sunday- getting drunk- acting like they are bad asses- getting into fights and generally looking for trouble. And they are not kids either- but "adults" are doing this. I don't like to even go near that tri-bar area - Jose Mac's, Ain Tain- Coogan's- it is a madhouse especially at closing time. And my local 7/11 near the Aquarium- what those clerks have to put up with - the absue they take from these drunks- well- they are not paid enough to deal with that crap. I can't count the times the front door to that place has been smashed or broken by drunks on the weekend.
