Philly Cops Begin Policing Bad Manners...?

"Philadelphia officials next month plan to use more “stick” in a program that takes a carrot-and-stick approach to bad behavior by people in cars, on bicycles, and on foot.

The program, dubbed “Give Respect, Get Respect,” was launched at the beginning of May, aimed at reining in bad behavior by motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians in Center City (things like distracted driving, jaywalking and sidewalk bicycling).

Since then, some tickets, but mostly warnings have been handed out.

But Deputy Mayor Rina Cutler says starting in August, more citations will be issued.

“After the first several months of doing that, we really need to pick up the enforcement side and really get serious,” she told KYW Newsradio today." (source)

Do they realize Philadelphia is in the Top 10 most murderous cities in the United States? Tons of rapes, robberies and racketeering...And they're worried about jaywalking and rude bicyclers?

See, I told you all --it all starts with smoking bans.
