What's the difference between being accosted by a "group" of punks or a "gang" of punks? I believe Tuna also mentioned that the punks were teens or early 20's, making it more likely that they were not drunk (if they were, then its another problem). Gee, maybe it was like leisure Friday where the gang wore Merriman shirts. Who gives a rats asss. The whole point was that it was a very dangerous situation and one that San Diego authorities need to address ASAP.
