No one is saying that raucous behavior is acceptable, on campus or off. Unfortunately, many residents are not calling for better behavior, they’re trying to drive all students out of the neighborhood, even the ones who are ideal neighbors. Bad behavior is unacceptable, whether or not you’re a student, and if you really believe so, you’ll condemn Brown’s stalking of students and his incendiary rants.

By the way, the main reason that relations improved in the late 1990s was because two of the most dishonest and hostile neighborhood activists were defeated by students in the ANC elections of 1996. As a result, some more moderate voices arose from the neighborhood, and for a while many neighborhood leaders actually focused on issues of behavior and home safety, instead of mindless attacks on everything related to GU.

Certainly no one would claim that the complaints of students about noisy, drunken and rowdy students on campus should be ignored simply because “They chose to live here.” Certainly no one would dream of ganging up on the campus police for dealing with the subject of the complaints. It would be more likely that students would object if actions were not taken to restore the Peace or other students threatened for making a complaint.

I do recall that GTU completely turned around on this very issue – like twelve years ago- when a neighbor videotaped a really raucus party and then taped the nice quiet totally peaceful campus at the same time of Saturday nights. The Board was OUTRAGED. They believed the reputation of the University was ,um, valuable to students past present and future. The Administration swore they had “no idea” things were so out of hand a few blocks off campus. I don’t know that anyone believed the Administration had no idea, since they had been told over and over, but for whatever reason, the Administration was changed. I don’t think that tack will work any better this time.

The University is in a residential neighborhood, and by Municipal Regulaltion 210.2 states clearly any University may not disrupt or even “create conditions that may become objectionable” in residential areas, SO: if people are objecting, the University is in violation of DC Law.

A picture of some sort of screen (perhaps abutting his property?):

SCREENING IS BREAKING WALL TO RIGHT IS NEW AND ILLEGAL W/O VARIANCE

ALSO DISTANCE FROM PROPERTY LINE TO CONDO ON RIGHT IS 4.8 FEET RATHER THAN 6 AND WOULD REQUIRE A VARIANCE.

Just look at it, guys, FOUR POINT EIGHT FEET RATHER THAN SIX. THAT IS A DIFFERENCE OF ONE POINT TWO.

From Stephen Brown’s website, here’s a photo of what counts as “diverse” in Burleith: http://srbphoto.zenfolio.com/p801347366/h287c29f3#h67ea765

There’s old, and there’s older. There’s white, and there’s whiter.

(I think I see a black lady towards the back, but she’s standing with Jeanne Lord, so I assume she’s with the University.)

I’m assuming that when he was told to censor photographs, he forgot that the same images he uses on his drunkgeorgetownstudents are located on his professional website (for example img 1977) on zenfolio. As some people captured in his photos would most likely NOT sign a waiver to be included in his failed money making adventures in photography (an amazon ranking lower than that of Heidi and Spencer Pratt personal photography), I believe that Mr. Brown should act accordingly and censor/remove the same photos.
