    Bunch of drunks wandering the streets of Fells point every weekend thinking they’re Pirates when instead all they are , are twenty something yuppie s$$t heads frustrated by spending all week in a 4×4 cubicle texting & playing video games.

    Why in the world are pirates glorified? They were thugs, rapists and thieves. They victimized innocent people going about their business, just as the Somali pirates are doing, today. What’s there to celebrate? In 100 years, will we have Nazi Day festivals on the streets of Baltimore? Or, Idi Amin. Maybe it’s time to have our children dress like him.

      But its okay to glorify the mafia!

  • Bonnie

    They dress up like pirates and say ARRR. Nothing wrong with that.
    No rapist, no thieves, just regular people having fun.

      Bonnie, Young white girls are getting date raped all the time in Fells point but are too embarrassed to report it. Don’t be so naive or ignorant.
