And now for another edition of Drunk, Out of Control Philadelphia Teenagers!
Last month at a Radio 104.5 block party show at the Piazza, some of the teenagers got rowdy! A neighbor saw drunk teens urinated all over her “entire” house; another said he filmed teens having sex out in the open. One person went to NBC 10, which filed a typical local news-style report.
If you ever need to know the difference between the people who live in Northern Liberties and the people who live in Pennsport, please refer to this story: When a parent in Pennsport saw a group of “between 100 and 150” teens drinking on one of the piers south of the Walmart in Pennsport, he didn’t go to NBC 10. No, his story ended up on PlanPhilly, where Kellie Patrick Gates filed a decidedly un-local news-like report. And look how reasonable people in South Philly are!
“These kids aren’t doing anything that you or I didn’t do, or anybody else,” said Pennsport Civic Association President Jim Moylan. But, he said, they are doing it in a much more dangerous area than dark areas beneath I-95. And if someone got hurt, they are “thousands of yards away from civilization.”
This is about as nice as you can be when tattling on teenagers for, essentially, drinking in the woods.
