Lions Fans Break and Enter

On Sunday evening a fellow Metroblogger and I were driving around downtown when we were none too pleased to be stuck in Lions aftermath traffic. As we were stuck on Cass a couple blocks south of 75, we witnessed five white males – beers in hand – who appeared to have just wandered out of the Lions game rip down a construction barrier and enter a development site. I just hope they didn’t damage anything. Being appalled we pleaded with them to no avail and resorted to calling the police. Of course, it seems unlikely that the police could have gotten to the site at all on time, but at least it is on record. We are in the process of identifying and contacting the developers. It makes me ill to think that investors who take a chance on the city may never again because five guys thought trespassing on private property was the perfect cap to a game.

    if not those guys at that moment then it would have probably been other people at a different time. copper thieves, construction material thieves, simple random destruction of property…that’s just what people do these days. and, unfortunately, it’s not just in the city. here’s to you for making the effort to stop it, though. oh, and if you called the police Sunday they should just about be there by now. haha.
