To give some background, yuppies have been gentrifying my neighborhood for about 5 years now. It's all hipsters and gay artists and people from the suburbs coming into our neighborhood. Some asshole buys out an old corner bar and turns it into a classy hipster/yuppie/artist bar. He tells the neighborhood guys that he doesn't want them in the bar anymore, and says he'll call the police if they come in. Word gets around the neighborhood. A few days later, the yuppie asshole who kicked out the neighborhood guys locks up the bar at the end of the night, and as he's walking to his car, a bunch of Irish guys beat his ass with baseball bats. Fight the power edit: I can't give any links for this because the yuppie asshole was either too shook up (or too smart) to go to the police. If he did, there hasn't been anything in the papers about it.
