The Georgetown forum, our favorite window into residents’ minds, is well-known for its diatribes against cat killers, newspaper thieves, and Republicans. But last weekend, it turned its critical eye towards the worst criminals of all: partying college students.
Robert Laycock, Citizens’ Association of Georgetown treasurer, got things started by complaining about an O Street party with “a couple of hundred very drunk and/or high kids.” Let’s break out the blockquote for the rest:
I called 911 around 11:30. The police arrive promptly and dispersed the crowd. The partygoers only walked a few hundred feet away, waited until the police were gone and then returned to the party house and make even more noise. I called 911 again, and again the police arrived promptly along with two GU police cars. The crowd continued to make noise as they left O street. They also harassed one neighbor who was walking her puppy threatening to defecate on her front stoop. There were drug deals going on the sidewalk, people were urinating and getting sick on the sidewalk.
