Backbooth backlash

More on the fireworks stunt that caused the cancellation of the Stitches show


Backbooth backlash

The security was in on this (“Stitches at Backbooth, sort of,” Sept. 12). Former employees who are friends with security were let in without being searched. Everyone knew this was gonna happen due to social media. FAM (Few Against Many) crew are a bunch of dickhead thugs who need to go to prison. People could have been killed by something like this. Large mortars set off in a small club could have easily caused a fire.

Those fat biker fucks did this (FAM Crew), and everyone knows it. Backbooth should be sued for negligence as they were let into the venue and everyone could tell they were there for trouble. This is why you don’t book hardcore straightedge acts before a dude that raps about cocaine.

FAM aren’t biker thugs. They aren’t even thugs. They are a bunch of rejects who haven’t even been in hardcore for longer than two or three years. They support the Outlaws because they are a bunch of little bitches who are too afraid to actually do anything. They were decent once and turned into dorks after they thought people were afraid of them. They wouldn’t last five minutes in a real hardcore scene.

Cannabis court

As the attorneys for Mr. Farley in both the criminal and civil forfeiture cases, as well as members of the NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) Legal Committee, I can say without reservation that this was a real victory for our client (“Court blocks Maitland from seizing drug house,” Sept. 17). To allow a municipal government to forfeit an entire house, the value of which is in the mid-six figures, for growing cannabis, is excessive and disproportional under the law. We were delighted that the District Court of Appeal thought so, too.
