Hmmm…Posted: September 27, 2006
My hometown is featured on the Biography Channel’s City Confidential tonight. The log line says the show is focusing on a terrible incident that happened several years ago between “preps” and “punks.” The popular kid murdered a well-thought of kid who’d been labeled an outcast by his peers because he dressed in the punk style. There’s been some tension between them, evidently, for a long time, and that night it boiled to a head. But already, the program notes have the location of the incident wrong. The fight started at IHOP, but escalated across the street where the prep ran over the punk with a Cadillac. I will have to watch it to see if they get anything else wrong.
