EASTER WILDING

NYC hasn’t observed this sort of criminality since the depressed 1970s; but whereas old habits die hard, social violence is forever imminent. Last Easter Sunday night, a band of thugs went on the rampage in Times Square and Herald Square (Manhattan). Four people were shot and fifty-six persons were either arrested or issued summonses as a result of the rioting that “came out of nowhere” according to a witness.

Mayor Bloomberg has termed this latest mayhem, which has become an Easter tradition here since 2003, as “wilding”: A neologism for spontaneous or pointless unrest that seeks to terrify tourists, pedestrians and business owners. In 2006, three people were stabbed; last year, 27 arrests were made.
