I laughed because I remember the "poster" from Rochester who badmouthed Greenville. It was later that we found out that he criticized Greenville because it was overshadowing his favorite city (which was not Rochester). Very bush league.

This thread is definitely getting off track now. Someone should take some notes about whether the proposed curfew has any impact on the number or behavior of teens this weekend.

Just easing things up a little...sometimes you have to don't you think? I know I can get frustrated sometimes and just need to chill out. Anyways, I'll head down there this weekend and see what's going on. It'll be pretty funny if right at 9:00 everyone scatters!

One thing I still don't understand is why 100+ teens would gather together. I mean...there's no way they're all talking to each other is there? Why can't they break up into smaller groups and spread throughout the park or other parts of downtown? My friends and I would go downtown with no more than 10 people and we could hang out wherever and nobody complained.

"Poster" in this case also means, "imposter". Online forums like City-Data.com and others that most of us are familiar with will continue to have this problem, just as it has been proven to be true more than a few times in the past. The key to clarification is...
  1. Always be aware of the potential for someone to break rules.
  2. Always discern such opinionated posts by their credibility and informational accuracy.
  3. Never be afraid to seek clarification by questioning and offering conflicting information.
  4. Never be afraid to seek assistance from trustworthy moderators and administrators.

I don't understand it. When I was a teenager I hung out with the same 10 or so friends most of the time. A teenager in Chapin got shot and killed at a house party in Chapin last weekend because of an argument about a missing cell phone. People just need to chill out.

I thought I saw on the news that teens caught downtown after the curfew would be "asked to go home". I've searched on line and can't find anything about if fines or arrests will be imposed for those caugt after the curfew. To me, it sounds like a waste of time if they are going to put a law in place, spend the money and man power to enforce it, and then not follow through. I did find that the number of teens downtown shrank from 300 to 100 last weekend, so it seems that he number of teens downtown before the curfew was stretched just a bit.

Well,I would't be one of those people,though I do believe it looks bad for other people across the country to be reading how citizens in Greenville are carrying on about what seems to me as very insignificant or atleast not near so bad as it's been made out to be.The problem I see from reading this thread is not a bunch of teenagers hanging out on Main Street not really causing any harm to anyone else,but a bunch of proud adults who thinks their city is above having young people hang out in crowds on the street whether black or white and from what I see,the crime rate iin Greenville is not something to be admired at anyway and not coming from these teens either.
