petiteperspective said: what kind of work were u doing?

i had to interview some kids whose friend got assaulted by gang members walking home from school. the cops came and seem to have arrested some people arbitrarily who weren’t involved.

the 14yo girl who was the main complainant basically pushed four armed perpetrators off of her friend and broke up the fight, and then helped him up and kept him calm and tended to his wounds until the police and EMS came. i talked to her 11yo sister and some other kids who were on scene trying to figure out what happened, i just like how bravely the kids handled it and how they had a lot of maturity and credibility speaking about what happened

also thank god for social media because it’s really easy to see who’s in who’s social networks, confirm people’s names and schools, gang affiliations, etc it just makes things so much easier

Woman to sit in my bath tub full of ramen noodles (brooklyn)

I will pay you $175 to sit in my bath tub full of ramen noodles wearing a bathing suit

I will not be home, nor will anyone else while you do this.

I will give you the keys while we meet, and you will go to my apartment thereafter.

It will require a 30 minute soak.

The noodles will be cooked and therefore slippery.

Do not bring any sauce. I will season the sauce after I get home prior to dinner.

primary thought after interviewing a group of 11- to 14-year-old kids today:

your average 6th grade from inner city brooklyn is more mature, confident, self-assured, composed, and gives better testimony in a legal deposition that your average 12th grader from the suburbs.
