the good, the bad, the sheer

Just in case you were wondering, YES. The emo riots continue

Emo kids in Mexico are being attacked en masse, and it's escalated to "riot" status throughout the past month. In case you're out of the loop, you can read about it HERE. I believe that the victims are being targeted based on band tee's and haircuts, and from the looks of it, Mexican emo kids are not nearly as fortunate or safe as their mall-dwelling, Warped Tour-attending ancestors to the North.

Honestly, leave the emos alone! At first I thought this was funny, but it's actually pretty sheer and pathetic. Emos are already 3 or 4 steps behind their peers, which I consider disadvantaged enough. They don't need beatings on top of all the baggage they already carry around.

You can watch this video of the violence, if you dare.
