Mayhem at Black Bike Week
Who didn't see this coming?
It was Black Bike Week in Myrtle Beach, S.C. over Memorial Day, and a major crime wave there swamped the MBPolice Dept. Coincidence?
There were armed muggings, vandalism, and drug busts, which describe an average Tuesday night at Charlie Sheen's house, but at Myrtle Beach?
Apparently in an attempt to mitigate the damage, some hotels and restaurants actually close because the cost of damage repair is too great. It's cheaper to close for two days. I know what you're thinking, "But Ed, the same thing happens during Spring Break every year and those are white kids."
Sorry, not buying it. Nobody closes their doors during Spring Break. And these aren't kids. These are grown adult men. Plus they aren't the leisure bikers and GoldWing club members. These are crotch-rocket riders who think they're in a Fast-Furious movie. I would expect a Hell's Angels convention to be just as bad. It's not a black thing, it's a violent biker thing.
