City Paper is not for tourists
At the Yum’s on Kennedy, we set up shop last night to film patrons on the recent Petworth shootings. Things were going just fine. It was after 11 p.m.
Then a lady came running towards us. She had a warning for us.
Something about a dog on the loose.
She ran into the Yum’s. We saw the dog—a pit bull. And yes, I admit, I scurried into the Yum’s. Ted, I admit, played it cool. Even though they were safe inside, people screamed some more. I may or may not have screamed like an eight-year-old.
Eventually, I calmed down enough. Ted got some footage of the pit bull. For City Desk. We are very brave. We should be given an award or a free lunch.
We also captured the musings of one Petworth resident about pit bulls, a recent stabbing, violence in general, the police, and Obama:
