I received a State Police Gaming Enforcement Unit report for August 12. It goes something like this:

The Massachusetts State Police Gaming Enforcement Unit at Encore- Boston Harbor, which includes Troopers and Everett Police Officers, as well as MSP and Everett patrols responding as backup and casino security, responded to several fights and disturbances early this morning after a large crowd exited a nightclub at closing time. Troopers and officers arrested two people, took a third into protective custody, and will summons a fourth person.

Several minutes after 2 a.m., Troopers and Officers assigned to the joint Gaming Enforcement Unit were assisting with crowd control as a large group of patrons exited a nightclub, Memoire, at closing. As a disturbance involving a large number of patrons erupted, GEU Troopers and Officers requested backup units; State Police-Medford and State Police-Revere patrols responded, as did Everett Police patrols and a State Police K9 unit. One person, SHANI MOHAMED ABO, 29, of Everett, was arrested and charged with assault, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest after he became uncooperative and combative with a club security officer and responding police officers.

Obviously, this can happen wherever there is alcohol and entertainment. Only the worst losers cause fights and disturbances. There is really no way to stop such events when they spin out of control.

A raid at what has been described as a motorcycle gang clubhouse on Orient Avenue in Everett Friday night has led to three arrests, and to the confiscation of four illegal firearms and ammunition, according to the Everett Police and the Middlesex District Attorney’s office.

Police said at least a dozen members of the Pagan Motorcyle Club were present at the location having a few drinks wearing their patches and insignias – known as colors.

When all was said and done, four semi-automatic handguns with loaded magazines and additional ammunition elsewhere were taken from gang members at the scene.

Police reported no violence at the club during the raid.
