Three Loud Teens

Last night/this morning 12/19 there were three teens that were causing a good amount of noise around 2 am. They flipped a dumpster in the alley between Grace and Warrick just East of Kilpatrick. Only providing this information in case others had a similar incident. There were two males and one female, all Caucasian, who looked like teenagers of high school age. One of the males was carrying a full sized dark colored flag with a 6ft or so flag pole. It was wrapped around the pole at the time so I didn't notice any distinguishing marks.

    If you didn't call 911, then expect them to be back doing more damage. It's not too late to file a police report (and you really should)

Littering - Really?

Just an observation - I'm amazed at the apparent acceptance of throwing trash out one's car window. Maybe it's just timing, but once again yesterday sitting at a stop light along Cicero and the car in front of me opens their window and tosses their trash (papers) out the window.

Is it just me or is that ok here? I moved here from Texas about 3 years ago and although Texas has other issues, it was just not cool to...

Just an observation - I'm amazed at the apparent acceptance of throwing trash out one's car window. Maybe it's just timing, but once again yesterday sitting at a stop light along Cicero and the car in front of me opens their window and tosses their trash (papers) out the window.

Is it just me or is that ok here? I moved here from Texas about 3 years ago and although Texas has other issues, it was just not cool to litter - seriously, in the 30 years I lived there I don't think I ever saw this sort of behavior, yet in the 3 years here I've seen it a half dozen times. There was a long running campaign in Texas - "Don't Mess with Texas" that seemed to really work, as hokey as that sounds. I hear no such message here.

For almost a year we had a guy that would sit in his car late at night along our street, eat takeout food and toss all his leftovers out of the car - I finally waited up and called the police and even after they chased him away he still came back, like it was perfectly acceptable.

I really don't get it?

  • It happens everywhere. It's not a neighborhood thing, since I've seen it happen in higher end neighborhoods from people who are just passing through. (Personally, I keep a bag for garbage in my car and take it with me when I park at home..). There are now two garbage swirls the size of Texas in the ocean.

    JimmyMac - I still remember that commercial of the American Indian with a tear running down his cheek and Sue - I do remember Clean-Up Week. Be nice to get that commercial to air again. My kids still remember when I was driving and stopped the car and pulled to the curb and made one of them walk back a block to pick up what they'd thrown out the window before giving them the lecture about all of us standing waist deep in trash if everyone threw their papers out the window. I think it was a gum wrapper - lol.
