AFTER the Tuesday-night shooting that killed three teens, an outraged Mayor Nutter had a few choice words to share outside City Hall.
“The first way for young people to stop this stuff is for young people to be home, where they’re supposed to be home, and for adults not to act like idiots and a**holes out in the streets of our city shooting at kids in a car.”
The mayor has no regrets or apologies, said Nutter spokesman Mark McDonald. (LINK)
Please. Nutter has spent most of his first term slashing and cutting his way through the police department (and fire department) budgets. The result? Less cops on the street, and less cars to patrol the neighborhoods. Now he’s shocked when the homicides are up? Is he serious? This is nothing more than faux outrage; a performance for the cameras. That’s all.
