Beware the hoodie hoodlums and never steal an Irishman's spirits

  • Published in Letters

To the editor,

Beware of the Hoodie Hoodlums. If you see a bunch of young punks at night, in the middle of July, wandering around in your neighborhood, wearing HOODIES, trust me, it's usually not to make a fashion statement.

I don't know if it was the dog growling or the wife's snoring that woke me in the middle of the night, late one summer evening at 11:30 p.m. several years back. The hair rose on the back of my neck as I saw two young males WEARING HOODIES, 6-feet ...

Beware of the Hoodie Hoodlums. If you see a bunch of young punks at night, in the middle of July, wandering around in your neighborhood, wearing HOODIES, trust me, it's usually not to make a fashion statement.

I don't know if it was the dog growling or the wife's snoring that woke me in the middle of the night, late one summer evening at 11:30 p.m. several years back. The hair rose on the back of my neck as I saw two young males WEARING HOODIES, 6-feet from my open bedroom window, adjacent to my enclosed deck with the wet bar , TV, and sound system. These punks were helping themselves. It was in my rights to load thier butts full of buckshot, instead we called 911. The Tilton PD were here in a jiff .They apprehended one of them in 10 minutes. As far as the other one, the State Police hound is still on the scent.

Lesson of the day. If you can avoid it, don't take matters into your own hands, and NEVER STEAL AN IRISHMANS SPIRTS.
