“There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie, and Dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar trying to make up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening. The Korova milkbar sold milk-plus, milk plus vellocet or synthemesc or drencrom, which is what we were drinking. This would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of the old ultra-violence.”
~ Malcom McDowell, as Alex, in A Clockwork Orange (A Stanely Kubrick film based on Anthony Burgess’s dystopian crime novel of the same name).
HYANNIS – [HN NOTES] – So, there was a little bit of the old violence last evening in Hytown (I know, shocking… right?) but for the most part it was actually rather peaceful for a Saturday night on a Labor Day Weekend, in my humble opinion. The cool night air was lovely and the booze was flowing. People seemed happy. (But maybe a little too “happy” for at least several individuals who would wind up bloodied, and in one case knocked out cold.)
As you can see in the top HN photo, it was the typical “closing time” fisticuffs in the West End shortly after last call. First responders arrived in the area of 595 Main Street for a man on the sidewalk, out cold, bleeding from the head. The individual who Jackie Channed his a$$ was long gone, reportedly on his way back over the Sagamore Bridge, possibly heading back to Peabody, rumored in some circles to be the unofficial Sucker Punch Capital of the North Shore.
And the man down on the sidewalk eventually came to, and after a little bit of cajoling changed his mind and decided it was probably a good idea to take a ride with Hyannis Rescue down to CCH after all. And his friends seemed relieved when it was all said and done, knowing their buddy was no longer unconscious. You know what they say, “All’s well that ends well…”
And it quickly went back to being a magical Hyannis evening with love in the air… until a carload of young people showed up at CCH injured, two with apparent stab wounds. (At around 1:40 a.m.)
One of the young men was checked in to be treated for his wounds. Wounds consistent with being stabbed and, surprise, surprise, he was reportedly very uncooperative with the cops, reportedly not telling them why, in the Wide World of Sports, he was now bleeding with apparent stab wounds in the emergency room at CCH.
And as you will hear in the following HN Video, the rest of the walk-in wounded hopped back in their car and skedaddled toward Main Street. There were three males and one female in a “one-piece, white colored jumpsuit.” The taller of the three males reportedly had a bloody face and a “pretty significant” stab wound to the back.
Police across the Cape were on the lookout but, at the time of this report, the rest of the “walk-in wounded” have not been found.
And then everything went back to being surprisingly peaceful and rather nice…
