This does not look good for the city. Yale sends its popular singing group, The Baker's Dozen, on a holiday concert tour. And San Francisco sends the young men away bloody, bruised, and several of them seriously injured.
Laura Aziz sent her son, Sharyar, off on a concert tour with one of Yale University's singing groups -- he came to San Francisco over New Year's.
This is how the 18-year-old returned to New York last week.
Sharyar Aziz, Yale University Student: "Besides any bruising or scrapes to the face, the main injury that I suffered was I broke my jaw in two places."
Laura Aziz, Sharyar's Mother: "It was shocking. It didn't make any sense. It still doesn't make any sense."
The Baker's Dozen are a 58-year tradition at Yale. They've put out two dozen albums and toured the country, with appearances at the White House and Los Angeles Lakers games. When their winter tour brought them to San Francisco, retired police officer and department lawyer, Reno Rapagnani, arranged a New Year's Eve party at his home in the group's honor.
Reno Rapagnani, Retired SFPD Lawyer: "I had given strict orders to my daughter that if anything got out of hand that the party would be over." .............

Hey... glad to help.

My site is out of date, so it isn't obvious that I'm a Hartford guy; I found your site because Maureen mentioned you.

Take care...

f t -i'm guessing that is the reason these men haven't been arrested yet - their silver spoons got in the way.

if i beat the shite out of someone, there were witnesses and it was unproved AND the police picked me up....what are the chances they wouldn't arrest me?

ah steve, maureen and hannah are grand! you remind me, i owe maureen a note... uh oh

anyway, i'm happy (if you're happy) you're in the hood. it's a great area (state police and homeland security 'lists' aside)
