Spring Street Jews – Quentin Cohan

Monday 2-23-15

11:42 a.m. Pappa Charlie’s: Security was called to escort out of the deli a student who was accosting the staff over an issue with the patron’s breakfast sandwich. The student had ordered a bagel with nova lox and cream cheese, but received gravlax instead. The server claimed the salmon was nova, but the student said his palette was very refined and could detect otherwise. Incensed, the student began throwing the brined fish around the store. Security removed the student. The fire safety inspector then swept up the dirtied delicacy. The student said he would go to Stop & Shop in the morning.

Tuesday 2-24-15

12:05 a.m. Dennett: A patrolling security officer broke up a group of students illegally gambling in the basement. The students were playing a game involving some sort of spinning top with characters on each side. The students were told to clean up the game and exit the basement, which they did without incident.

Wednesday 2-25-15

10:30 p.m. Carter: A student reported a theft. The student claimed that two J Crew® sweaters had been stolen from his room. One was a blue crew-neck which the student really liked and wore frequently, especially on the weekends. The other was a gray v-neck to which he was less partial because it was about a size too big, but since his Bubby and Zaide had given it to him it had sentimental value. Additionally, with the holidays coming up he had planned to wear it with a dress shirt and khakis to family functions. The officer on duty said he would keep his eyes open.

Thursday 2-26-15

10:11 p.m. Lehman Hall: A student was both kvetching and kvelling after receiving a grade on her history paper. Security gave the student a glass of water and told her to lie down.

Friday 2-27-15

2:05 p.m. Sawyer-Stetson: Security responded to a student who reported cultural appropriation. The student reported another student who was wearing a yarmulke around his neck as a necklace instead of in its traditional place atop the head. The officer confronted the offender who simply responded “oy.”

Saturday 2-28-15

12:38 p.m. Weston Hall: A student reported institutionalized anti-semitism in the form of a swastika on the building’s side. The officers on duty said there was nothing they could do and left.
