Philadelphia Mayor On Teen Violence: This Nonsense Must Stop

Speaking at Mount Carmel Baptist Church, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter discusses recent teen violence in the city.

"This nonsense must stop," he said, calling on parents to "get your act together" and telling trouble-making young people to "stop acting like idiots and fools."

He closes with a message to African American young people:

"If you want all of us -- black, white or any other color -- if you want us to respect you, if you want us to look at you in a different way, if you want us not to be afraid to walk down the same side of the street with you, if you want folks not to jump out of an elevator when you get on, if you want folks to stop following you around in stores when you're out shopping, if you want someone to offer you a job or an internship somewhere, if you don't want folks to be looking in or trying to go in a different direction when they see two or 20 of you coming down the street, then stop acting like idiots and fools out in the streets of the city of Philadelphia. Just cut it out."
