The Emo Patrol Strikes Mejico

Anti-Emo Riots Break Out Across Mexico

Riot police have taken to the streets of several cities in Mexico to … defend emo kids?

A series of attacks on dyed-hair, eye-makeup-wearing emo kids began in early March when several hundred people went on an emo-beating rampage in Querétaro, a town of 1.5 million about 160 miles north of Mexico City.

The next week, shaggy-haired emo teenagers were harassed again by punks and rockabillys in the capital, prompting police protection and a segment on the TV news. Most recently, a Mexican newspaper reported that metal heads and gangsters have warned Tijuana’s emo kids to stay away from the town’s fair next month.

But the so-called emos are organizing, too. Last week, they demonstrated against the violence, pictured above, and Wednesday some met with police in Mexico City.

You just can’t make some things up.

So sad. The things our generation organizes about. Removing ‘is’ from Facebook’s status. The right to be emo.

May the universe help us all!

    Lol… I’m not sure what to make of this. I think I’ll just laugh like Brian from family guy when Stewie asks him to shave his balls.
