I just saw two babboons (brothers) on Broad St. in Whitehall. One was going east and turning left into UDF. The other was going west in a Neon and zipping along at 50 mph. The one turning left wouldn't slow down, nor would the one going straight.
I wouldn't be surprised if he just jumped out in traffic and expected everyone to stop for him like they owed him a living. And I wouldn't be surprised if the driver was gabbing away on his cell phone and/or just barrelled on through and just plain refused to stop. Its typical behavior of that demographic and you see the behavior on the east side all the time.
I challenge anybody to dispute what I wrote.
I won't dispute what you write as I live, work and drive in this area all the time and see unbelievable incidents while driving or walking or riding my bike. But I also see it all over this city, not just the areas you mention. And I guess people take umbrage at calling others "babboons." And showing disrespect for the dead and their families. And making claims about oneself which is so transparently false.

Please see post #144.
You have to live on the east side to know what I am talking about. You see the same behavior over and over again.

As I said before, only a few threads a day, while I'm watching TV or on the phone. Come out here on the east side, or just hang out at the BP at James and Main for a few minutes and you will quickly see what I mean.
Why in the name of God would someone like you be hanging out at James and Main? Maybe you live in Bexley.

It's hard to believe more people than you and me don't notice the same behavior. In fact, I'm sure they do. For some reason, it's a crime to post or say things like that in public because they hit a nerve.
If this was an accident, then I'm sorry. But I wouldn't be surprised if it's just more of the same behavior we see every day.
I see it! This is just not the place to vent about it.

If you want read things written in polite English, you should check out NPR. These are internet message boards and what makes them so fun is that you can express what you really think in the words you actually want to use.

Yes, what you say is true. It happens all over the city, just not with the sense of entitlement and attitude that it happens in areas with that demographic. As the author of Post #144 stated, jaywalking is treated as a civil right.

Yes it is!

Through the process of venting, perhaps one of these people might think twice about his actions and the consquences that result!

This is venting, and it is also teaching.

It seems impossible to have this kind of accident in an area that should have a 20mph speed limit. I hope his death will be a wake-up call for both pedestrians and drivers.

So why is it that the other kids that where hit this week where white? Why does some idiot always make every issue a racial one? And they say that racism is dead. HA!

I drive through Weinland Park on Fourth Street every afternoon. Those people act like jaywalking is a civil right.
The welfare queens just waddle out there, the thugs kind of shuffle along with their pants around their knees and grasping their crotches, and the little queenettes and thuglings swerve and dart into traffic on their (probably stolen) bicycles. About half the time I'll see one or more cops in the area, but I guess they're too busy looking at porn to write tickets to scofflaws.
And the ones who don't are "acting white"

And I'm sorry you're an idiot - and a moron.
You should be sorry for yourself, too.
