the police will not be excused

While I'm on a posting rampage, check this out. Alan is a super nice dude who did a show for us last year and has done tons of shows for tons of good folks at his house in Jersey. What a shitty situation. Hopefully he can get some sort of recourse, although you know how things often tend to go in such instances. Especially sucks since, according to the account posted, the show was in Williamstown proper, which is where the poor fellow lives. Hopefully there won't be continuing trouble.
