It seems to me that this summer has seen more than its share of crazy stuff going on in this city. A few weeks ago, a guy ran into a police station about 10 minutes' ride from my apartment and proceeded to stab to death six police officers before being restrained.
Then there is the sad story of Diana O'Brien, the Canadian model who was found dead in her apartment building after only two weeks in the city. (Note regarding that story: Most apartment security guards seem mostly there for show, and it's not surprising that the security in her building was ineffective).
Then the other day, I was walking down the street and saw a man chasing after another man, waving a machete and screaming. The man he was chasing managed to get away.
And just this weekend, I was in a cab and saw a man having a fight with a woman, and proceeded to knock her down and attempt to club her with a U-lock. Fortunately, some people managed to restrain him before he actually made contact.
I'm getting a bit freaked out, honestly. I don't know if it's the heat or what, but whatever it is, stop now please.
