"If one of us were gone from Tinkture, Tinkture would just collapse and die, you know"

Last night, 16-year-old Roisin Isner, a member of Tinkture, had her hand basically blown off by fireworks. Some idiot chucked them at her and her friends.

I can't take the stupidity. Is it just the Bay Area -- the love-everybody-all-the-time-let-them-do-what-they-want mentality -- or is it the world? All I know is that a teenage musician can now no longer play.

This is what I read on the SFGate comments:

Roisin Isner, drummer for the San Francisco band Tinkture lost her hand in Dolores Park last night watching the fireworks. Her dad sent the email below to some local media outlets... Sent: Thursday, July 05, 2007 4:32 AM To: XXXX Subject: Roisin Isner, Tinkture drummer Hello, I am Roisin's father. July 4th, Roisin and friends were in Dolores Park watching fireworks. Some stupid piece of shit threw an M60 at them. It landed on Roisin's right hand and blew it apart. She will undego surgery later this morning but it doesn't look good. Most likely she will lose her index finger; second and third fingers will also be permanently impaired and disfigured. Needless to say, her musical career is over. I want this fucker. Media attention will help flush him out. People know who did it and I'm offering $20,000 for a name. Please do whatever is necessary to get the story out. Do so and I will reward you as well. Thank you, Chris Isner
