It’s been a while, but just wanted to point out that GU hasn’t “been here” since 1634. It’s roots go back that far, but there was no presence in Georgetown until 1787. I know there’s a desire to argue that GU predates the town of Georgetown, but it’s not the case. And it doesn’t really matter either way.

Georgetown students, so drunk and rowdy they disturb the neighbors. “Real” Georgetown residents HIRE HIT MEN TO KILL THEIR WIVES, but we ignore those, you only count if you get your rocks off taking pictures of students at night and making up committees to troll them. committies

SHOCKING! An University trying to protect its own interests – how dare they. I’m sure the man whose car was damaged ran down the student for his own rehabilitation, right?
Personally, though, I’m far more concerned about having our interests as law-abiding student residents of the Georgetown neighborhood protected. I dare say at least 99% of us are registered to vote in our home states, not the District, so we don’t have a voice to defend our interests against such entities as “Self-Righteous Burleith Residents Who Believe We Should Be Allowed To Move Next To A College That Has Been Here Since 1634 and Keep the Students Locked In Cages Coalition” who have somehow managed to prevent us from having a boathouse (where, ironically, we could be segregated from the community boathouse) to keep our student athletes occupied and, you know, “off the streets.” Perhaps it’s the same logic that lead them to vote down a metro stop in the area – if we don’t make it easy, we can keep the people that aren’t us away. That also keeps the people that are here from leaving, including the very students you loathe.
Perhaps we should organize as a University community who has been here for at least 350 years longer than you have and demand that YOU remove yourselves from OUR sight. I, too, wish there were a greater MPD presence in the area – maybe one of them could chase down the residents who have nearly hit me in the crosswalk when I have the right of way. It happens daily when I walk to campus. Maybe they could also remove the non-students at Yates who will ignore an entire row of empty treadmills to get on the one in front of MTV that just happens to be next to mine, spend most of the time standing still or walking extremely slowly, and repeatedly leer at me. Perhaps you’re not capable of the same crimes a drunk 21 year old is, but you’re certainly not a guiltless bunch.

Neat trick! Kid got what he wanted – no police involvement. I’m sure that means a lot to the non-student who chased him down and handed him over to the police. GU has been bragging about how it’s supported additional MPD presence in the area, but it sounds more like they’re there to protect GU’s interests than it is to protect neighborhood residents.

And how about making him appear before a public meeting of the ANC? As for the snide student comments about this story, you’re not helping your case at all. How can anyone truly doubt that this actually happened? And if this were a “singular” incident, why were so many Georgetown residents upset with off-campus student behavior LONG BEFORE this happened? As for the remark about “self-righteous” Burleithers, show me an instance of a non-student Burleither putting a brick through a student’s winshield, and you MIGHT have a leg to stand on. Until then, you come off as delusional as Albrecht Muth!

Really? Maybe an overnight, no more. Even if university were completely uninvolved, this kid would not be going to jail. DMT Lab didn’t even send anyone to jail, did it?
