y 2015, residents desiring to take in a summertime dose of nature may no longer feel the need to travel beyond the city limits. Mayor Michael A. Nutter’s Greenworks Philadelphia campaign aims to plant 300,000 new trees within the next five years. Saturday morning, local groups will participate in a variety of projects designed to enrich and improve Philadelphia’s urban park system in the city’s annual Love Your Park Day.

eisha Walker was out of work for a month standing up for what she believed was right. While the Temple University Hospital nurse returned to work on Tuesday with a new contract, she was encouraging fellow parents at her son’s school to stand together in support of their children last week. “Now I’m here tonight standing up for the safety of my son,” the resident of 19th

and Dickinson streets said at the April 28 three-hour meeting. “I hate to say this, but Barratt is not an options for my son. That’s just not an option … In September, my son will not be there.” The School District of Philadelphia has proposed to shutter George W. Childs Elementary School, 1541 S. 17th St., at the end of the current school year due to the building’s age of 116 years and relocate the pupils to Norris S. Barratt Middle School, located four blocks away at 1599 Wharton St. Eight school district officials

including Childs’ Principal Alphonso Evans formed the panel that addressed the proposed move — which must first be approved by the School Reform Commission — inside Childs’ auditorium as about 200 residents listened. The district met with Childs’ parents again on Tuesday and has more sessions scheduled leading up to the commission’s 2 p.m. May 26 meeting at 440 N. Broad St.. Regardless, Walker refuses to send her See CHILDS SCHOOL page 10

To the Editor: I believe that I have silenced all of the critics over the last three weeks who have disputed with me about the letter, (“Lion in the streets,” April 15). I know a lot about the damage caused by trees as I’ve been watching them in different locations around the world for a long time. My joy of your printing my little story was soon marred by the fact that my friends were taking ill with sinusitis and asthma. They are unable to share in my joy from their beds, and so on their behalf I would like to title this story “South Philly soup.” A long time ago, when I was a child wandering the streets of South Philly in the spring and summertime between 3 and 6 p.m., there was always this delicious smell in the air — I was told that it was soup. I was told that if you were hungry or didn’t feel well, just eat some soup and all would be fine. You have to understand we didn’t have air conditioners in those days and everybody’s front window was open for fresh air. We, as a people, were Irish, Italian, Polish, Jewish and African-American all living side-by-side. What wonderful smells greeted those men coming home from work. I left town for a few years, lived In Germany, ate potato soup (not bad) and then came home. I arrived at 19th and Dickinson streets by cab on a bright summer afternoon and was greeted by a stench that almost made me choke. That smell is still here, but I’ve become used to it over the years and even traced it to the source. The smell of the soup in the air of Philly today is a toxic mixture of the greening that is going on. All these different kinds of trees with their own special essence. There’s strychnine, arsenic, tannin, aspirin, pine, birch, maple and ivy. I could go on, but I will conclude here by saying that there is fungus, mold and pollen all adding their spoor to this soup that we call fresh air and it’s making us ill. It won’t kill us, but it will just make us sick. The side effects of the medicine will probably kill us. Thomas J. Barnes South Philadelphia

Where do they stand? To the Editor: A few months ago 1st District Councilman Frank DiCicco wanted to extend the 10-year tax abatement to a 15-year tax abatement. He wanted to give everyone a 12 percent real

estate increase and then withdrew it. Now, Councilman-at-Large W. Wilson Goode Jr. wants a 9 percent tax increase on behalf of Council. Then Councilman-at-Large Bill Green rehabbed his office at the expense of all of us because he wanted cosmetic changes after the sprinkler system was installed at a cost of $18,698, $15,627 more than it should have cost. For someone who is a stickler for a breakdown of all money spent by the City, you should live by example. Then 10th District Councilman Brian J. O’Neill wants to consider withdrawing the soda tax legislation by saying there is no support, but halted it at the request of other Council members. Who are they? Why don’t they let us know how they feel about this? The “Campaign for Healthy Kids” says 44 percent of people surveyed favored a soda tax to solve the city’s budget problem and obesity on children. Who did they survey? Why blame soda and any other sugar products? Why not tax cereal and cookies and any other snacks that have sugar? Come on, enough with the soda tax. Go after those that owe the city money for taxes and utilities. Start the process of auctioning off properties and see how fast these landlords come up with the money. I understand the city is in a financial mess, but you shouldn’t be going after the little people to solve it. A lot of workers didn’t get raises this year, but the prices are still going up. How about Managing Director Camille Barnett getting that Christmas present early, work a little over two years and be able to buy into your pension and wind up with a full pension. Remember, Council next year you’re up for re-election. Mario Marchetti South Philadelphia

Look out man To the Editor: I’d like to once again thank Sean Holmes, who witnessed a hit and run accident at Fifth Street and Oregon Avenue on April 24. I was parked outside the TD Bank sitting in my car and waiting for my sister when a truck came flying down Fifth Street, taking a good part of my car with him. Sean happened to be driving behind this creep and had the presence of mind to quickly record the perpetrator’s license plate number. His quick think-

ing was of great assistance to me and the Philadelphia Police Department, who also did a wonderful job. Sean’s action was the epitome of the good Samaritan, and I thank him again for being in the right place at the right time. Rosary Casiello South Philadelphia

Saving local forests To the Editor: From Sproul State Forest to Tioga State Forest (home to the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon), Pennsylvania’s state forests are well-known destinations for hiking, fishing, camping and other outdoor activities. Yet, most Pennsylvanians would be surprised to hear that our wild forests are often being sold off to the highest bidder for destructive practices that will do irreparable harm to these beautiful places. For example, state officials have already opened up 700,000 acres of state forest lands for harmful gas drilling in the Marcellus Shale region. That’s more than 40 percent of Pennsylvania’s state forests that fall within the Marcellus Shale. This means more roads, pipelines, well pads and truck traffic in our state forests. In turn, this means further lost habitat for our state’s species and more pollution in pristine streams that serves as drinking water sources for downstream communities. Sadly, this trend may continue. Many politicians in Harrisburg only see the short-term financial gain that can be reaped from our state forestlands — profit that will go to many of the richest corporations in the world like Exxon-Mobil and Halliburton. Luckily, there is a proposal to halt further leases for drilling in our state forests, House Bill 2235 introduced by state Rep. Greg Vitali of Delaware County. If passed, this legislation will help keep parts of Pennsylvania’s state forest wild — for now and for future generations. I hope local residents will call on their legislators to support House Bill 2235 to preserve our remaining wild forests from harmful drilling.

A couple of the bigger names include Lady Gaga (July 4) and the Black Eyed Peas (Aug. 7) both at Boardwalk Hall. The Atlantic City Hilton, however, is taking somewhat of a creative/political approach with its lineup. The resort recently announced an all-star list of names for its Summer Speaker Series. Television news personalities Glen Beck and Bill O‘Reilly kick things off 8 p.m. June 24. A month later, 7 p.m. July 23, former President Bill Clinton comes to the Hilton Theater.

ne of the events I look forward to attending every year, at least for the last couple of years, is the Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival. The event, which started as the Toast to the Coast in 2008, seems to be getting bigger and bigger every year. This time around Harrah’s Entertainment, the Food Network and Conde Nast Traveler are teaming up to make the late-summer bash a memorable one. This year’s events are once again spread over Harrah’s four properties and include everything from a “Chefs on Stage” series to a Jersey Tomato Brunch. One event that will likely be of interest to South Philadelphians is Guy Fieri’s Cheesesteak Battle where regional chefs will go head-to-head in this ultimate battle. Fieri, for those who have never met him in person, is quite a trip and has a personal-

custom sushi bar, Ruby Buffet offers the best Chinese, American, Italian and Japanese selections.

ff-duty 14th District police officer Rudolf Gary, 26, of the Northeast, allegedly shot and killed 22-yearold Howard Williams, of the 1800 block of Hoffman Street, 6:43 p.m. Sunday, Lt. Frank Vanore, of Police Public Affairs Unit said. While Vanore would not confirm details about a water gun fight initiating the gunfire, he did say an argument ensued and Gary is believed to have discharged his weapon, striking Williams multiple times in addition to hitting a 26-year-old woman in the leg and grazing an 18-year-old man in the leg. All three were transported to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Vanore said. Williams was pronounced dead at 5:20 p.m. while the other two were in stable condition. Monday, District Attorney Seth Williams announced criminal charges against Gary, according to spokeswoman Tasha Jamerson. On Tuesday morning, the district attorney posted to his Facebook page, “Yo Philly, it is never acceptable to shoot and kill someone because of a water gun fight. Never!� After Police Internal Affairs reviewed the case, Gary was given a 30-day suspension with intent to dismiss, which began Monday, Vanore said. Gary has been charged with murder, two counts each of aggravated assault, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person, and three counts of possession of an instrument of crime, according to court documents.

Gunfire broke out yet again on the intersection of 20th Street and Snyder Avenue last week. The gunmen are still on the loose. Police responded to the area around 5:20 p.m. April 27 to find two wounded bystanders, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. A 29year-old man told police he was deaf, but faintly heard gunshots as he exited the corner store. He started to run when a bul-

let struck him in his right calf, so he ran home. An 18-year-old was on his cell phone when he was hit by a bullet in his right hand, Tolliver said. He ran to 20th and Mercy streets. Police transported both men to HUP where they were treated and released. Ballistic evidence was located at the intersection where the two were shot in addition to the 1900 block of Dudley Street, Tolliver said. Police did not provide a description of the shooters. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

Fans on the run A teenager, who ran out on the field during the eighth inning of Monday night’s Phillies-Cardinals game, was subdued with a taser gun while a 34-year-old repeated the act a night later. A 17-year-old, of the 300 block of Kleman Road, Gilbertsville, allegedly ran on to the field at Citizens Bank Park at 9:20 p.m., Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. An officer tried to stop him, but he continued to run causing the umpires to halt the game. The officer ordered the teen to stop, but he did not abide, so the officer tasered him. He was taken in custody and transported to Methodist Hospital for medical evaluation, Tolliver said. He was charged with defiant trespassing, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. He allegedly found the incident hilarious and repeatedly laughed while the police processed him, Tolliver added. On Tuesday night Thomas Betz, 34, of the 900 block of Browning Place, Warminster, delayed play during the top of the ninth inning of the Phillies-Cardinals game as he allegedly ran out on the field, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. After surrendering to stadium security Thomas Betz without incident, he was arrested, Tolliver said. Police searched him and found a single packet of marijuana. He was charged


Police Report with defiant trespassing, disorderly conduct, interrupting meetings or processions and possession of a controlled substance.

Shot for charging at officer An officer fired a shot at an angry man, who slammed the door on he and his partner’s faces and allegedly rushed at them with a large piece of glass. Police responded to the 2200 block of South 15th Street around 7:54 p.m. April 27 for a domestic disturbance, said Lt. Frank Vanore of Police Public Affairs Unit. Jose Falero-Garcia, 31, is believed to have screamed and acted very aggressively when he answered the door after the officers knocked and identified themselves. The officers asked him numerous times to calm down, but Falero-Garcia allegedly slammed the door on them, Vanore said. The officers called for backup and Falero-Garcia allegedly opened the door and sprinted out of the home toward the officers with his hands raised above his head with a jagged piece of glass in his right hand. One of the officers fired one shot at the man and struck him in his abdomen, Vanore said. Falero-Garcia was taken into custody and charged with two counts of aggravated assault, possession of an instrument of crime, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and resisting arrest, according to court documents.

A teen has been accused of stabbing her younger brother inside their Grays Ferry home early Sunday. An officer was summoned to the 1600 block of South 27th Street at 4:17 a.m. where he met the teens’ mother, who informed the officer of the stabbing, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. Police observed the knife in 18-year-old Christine Stanley’s right hand and saw two men struggling with her. Police demanded she drop it, but she did not obey the order, so an officer struck her arm with a baton and she dropped the weapon, Tolliver said. Her 17-year-old brother had a cut on his forehead and on his left hand, but did not know how the altercation began. Stanley was charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, possession of an instrument of crime and recklessly endangering another person.

An elderly man was beaten and robbed inside his Grays Ferry home after posting his car for sale on the Internet. The 71-year-old received a phone call April 27 from a man who told him he was interested in purchasing the 1997 Nissan Pathfinder that was listed on caigslist, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The man was standing outside on the 1800 block of South 32nd Street when two men arrived on foot to look at the vehicle. They went on a test drive and offered the man $2,800. Although he wanted $3,500, he agreed and took the men inside his home to sign over the title. One of the men asked for a bottle of water, but when the man turned to get the water, he was struck in the back of the head and both males punched him in the face, Tolliver said. Another man entered the home wearing a ski mask and the trio screamed, “where is the safe at?” The men forced the resident upstairs

where his 39-year-old roommate was sleeping in her room. The man with the ski mask pointed a silver handgun at her and took her cell phone and duct taped her hands together. Meanwhile, one of the other perpetrators went with the 71-year-old to the rear bedroom to his safe, Tolliver said. He emptied it of its contents, which included collector coins, but asked the man, “where is the rest of the money? I’ll cut your throat.” The men searched his pockets and located an envelope with $9,800 inside. The man wearing the ski mask told him, “shut your eyes, you’ll be better off,” Tolliver said. The man begged for his life and then heard, the men exit his bedroom and his home. He then called police at about 2:18 p.m. The man suffered a bloody lip and swelling to his face, but the woman was unharmed, Tolliver said. The first two men were described as black males, in their early 30s, 5-foot-6 or 5-foot-7. One was dressed in tan clothing and the other was wearing black. The third male, who was wearing a ski mask, was possibly Hispanic, in his 20s, with some facial hair and dressed in gray clothing. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013.

Expanding her horizons

The artistic director of a local dance company premieres her latest ballet as she looks ahead to new opportunities locally and abroad. Rachel T. Halkias Review Intern

M

ost people are familiar with classical ballet storylines involving lovely, lighter-than-air maidens, chivalrous suitors, characters with evil or mischievous intentions and perhaps a magic spell or two. Rebecca Davis’ ballets tell stories too, but hers are rooted more in reality than in fantasy. The newest ballet from the Rebecca Davis Dance Co., 1802 S. Broad St., titled “Braving the New World,” is based on literary works such as Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World,” George Orwell’s “1984” and Ray Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451.” In the ballet’s world, social and political forces impose conformity, but one man refuses to give up his emotional and individual freedoms. The production, which the company will perform 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre, 480 S. Broad St., is its last Philadelphia world premiere for this and next seasons as Davis plans to focus on touring with her company . These totalitarianism-themed books have been around for decades, so what prompted Davis, the company’s artistic director, to create a ballet with similar themes? “There are so many contemporary parallels,” Davis said. “Especially in America, from the Patriot Act to surveillance to Google maps.” “Braving the New World” is South Philadelphia native Okewa Garrett’s first production with the company. The 21stand-Fitzwater resident has been teaching jazz and hip-hop at the company’s studio, but became a member of the corps, or ensemble, for the ballet in March — months after the other dancers. “I just kind of hopped in,” he said. “There was a lot of catching up and remembering.” Davis’ style is different from what he is accustomed to, which is mostly modern and jazz, Garrett said. Still, picking up the movement did not take long, and the unique style helped him expand his capabilities as a dancer. “I enjoyed the challenge,” he said. “It allowed me to be more versatile.” Because the need for his presence came

on such short notice, Garrett, a member of the Philadelphiabased Eleone Dance Theater that was touring in Glen Allen, Va. last Thursday and Friday, spent more time at first focusing on learning the choreography than on contemplating the story behind it. “Now I feel more comfortable. I’m not just dancing from the neck down anymore,” he said over the background chatter of his tour mates. Adapting to Davis’ movement style and becoming comfortable with it was challenging, added Samantha Barczak, who moved to the area from upstate New York when she was 16 to attend The Rock School, 1101 S. Broad St. “It’s quite different than the Nutcracker,” she said, adding that it is also “very aerobic.” In her first full year with the company, Barczak, of Broad Street and Washington Avenue, plays the role of the main female’s best friend, Sally. “Rebecca was a huge help in describing in depth what kind of personality she was looking for,” Barczak said on what helped her get into the mindset of the character. Barczak had read the book in high school, but reread it for this production. “Rebecca strongly suggested it,” she said. Experiencing social and political issues through dance exposes people to different facets the news does not often cover — ones more focused on individuals than the story as a whole, Garrett said. Witnessing movement within the context of relevant issues enables audience members to find an emotional connection with the characters, and in turn, the people those characters portray. “Seeing it on TV or in the paper, that’s one thing. But seeing it live onstage — it’s unbelievable,” he said. THE THEME OF totalitarianism has interested Davis for years. She read Huxley and Orwell in high school, and spent time traveling around Russia and Eastern European countries. When creating a new work, Davis follows a specific process, beginning with research then writing a libretto, or text ac

companiment that outlines the story, and finally picking the music, she said. The actual generation and development of movement happens afterward. “I do the choreography myself first, then set it on the dancers,” she said. “It becomes more collaborative at that point.” Davis has been working on “Braving the New World” for about a year with her dancers rehearsing since September, she said. The company also spent a great deal of time performing another production, “Darfur,” throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. The new ballet features five main characters, each possessing a motif unique to his or her person. “The crossed arm position is the motif Mustalla uses to represent his character and suggest that all other beings of the new world are enslaved through conformity,” she said. Another character’s motif is a butterfly, which Davis said represents freedom. The company will soon be experiencing some new freedom of its own. For a couple of reasons, Davis plans to restructure the company and pursue touring opportunities in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey, as well as overseas in Bosnia and Rwanda. “Certainly, financially, we need to look

at a more stable model,” she said. “But beyond that, there is a vast need to look at the power of dance in a different context, which is difficult to do if we’re based in one city with a full season.” But that does not mean the company will not revert back to its previous Philadelphia-based structure in the future, she added. At this point, she is not certain if all her dancers will be staying with the company to tour. They are free to decide, especially since some of the destinations will be post-war countries, she said. “I can’t wait until that happens,” Garrett said. “I’m up for the challenge.” Barczak is interested in branching out from Philadelphia, she said, and though it depends on what type of work becomes available, she added that she “would love to continue working with Rebecca.” “Braving the New World” is the company’s strongest ballet to date, Davis said, and close, family-like bonds between the dancers contributed to that strength. “I think it’s the right production to be marking this part of the company’s life,” she said. Former New York Times dance critic John Martin wrote of a performance by modern dancer and choreographer Martha Graham, “She does the unforgivable thing for a dancer to do — she makes you think.” Rebecca Davis’ ballets are meant to do exactly that — they are not solely based on aesthetics, nor do they employ the fairytale narrative of many classical ballets. “When people leave the theater, I don’t necessarily want them to be happy or entertained,” Davis said. “I want them to wake up the next morning still thinking about it.” SPR Comment at news/features.

THE NEW DEPARTMENT of Parks and Recreation, a result of the combination of the Fairmount Park Commission and the Recreation Department as of July 2010, will be in charge of managing the tree planting campaign that launched on April 24 in North Philadelphia’s Francisville neighborhood. The Department hopes to foster partnerships with local businesses and nonprofit organizations that will actively contribute to tree-planting efforts within Philadelphia. “This kick-off event with Francisville exemplifies the ‘new tree planting model,’ which leverages community partnerships to increase the number of trees planted,” Nutter said at the launch. “With the help of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, corporate citizens, local nonprofit organizations, and other institutions, I have no doubt that Philadelphia will become the greenest big city in America.” PHS will remain a crucial participant in the undertaking. As of April 24, community groups trained by PHS’s Tree Tenders

program will be responsible for planting up to 1,000 trees, expected to go up in neighborhoods throughout the city by the end of May. Tree Tenders’ training consists of a ninehour-total course that includes hands-on tree care. Programs are offered in locations throughout the Greater Philadelphia area, on weekday evenings or Saturday trainings. “Tree Tenders is free and open to the public,” Mahar said. “We have trained thousands of residents how to plant and care for urban trees and there are Tree Tenders groups in nearly every community in Philadelphia.” The upcoming local efforts of the Greenworks Philadelphia tree planting campaign will be possible due to a $1.65 million grant from the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority, which is, in turn, aided by funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The first major citywide contribution to the campaign will be this Saturday’s event, which was preceded in previous years by two park cleanup events: Spring into Your Park and Greater Philadelphia Cares about Fairmount Park Day. PHS will partner with the Department of Parks and Recreation and Greater Philadelphia Cares in a cleanup effort that will span more than 90 parks within the city. “The purpose of the day is to focus public awareness on the tremendous asset and resources that we all share in Philadelphia’s park system, to accomplish much needed park beautification projects, and to strengthen and expand community support for the parks,” Mahar said.

forts in neighborhoods that spanned the city. Organizers hope to see the attendance rate reach 2,000 volunteers in this rain-orshine event. In South Philadelphia, the Lower Moyamensing Civic Association will contribute to several neighborhood park cleanups from 9 a.m. to noon. At Mifflin Square Park, Sixth and Wolf streets, and at Weinberg Park, Sixth and Jackson streets, the civic association’s volunteers will sweep walkways, clear away debris, and remove graffiti, among other things. Additionally, volunteers at Marconi Plaza — the signature site for the cleanup at Broad Street and Oregon Avenue — will contribute to garden maintenance, weeding and mulching, and planting trees and perennials. Nutter, along with Parks and Recreation Commissioner Michael DiBerardinis and Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) President-elect Drew Becher, will be in attendance as part of a morning press conference. “Locals can get involved by going on the Greater Philadelphia Cares website and signing up online or calling them. Or they can just show up on the day of the event,” said Lower Moyamensing President Kim Massare. Supplies will be provided on-site at park cleanups throughout Philadelphia while SEPTA and recycling advocates will be on hand to staff information tables at Marconi Plaza. Furthermore, volunteers at Marconi can look forward to an appearance by the Mummers, who will perform before and after the press conference. Around noon,

Pop’s Water Ice and other local vendors will donate revitalizing refreshments to the participants. “Apart from the obvious benefits of beautifying parks, Love Your Park Day is a great way to bring neighbors together as one,” Massare said. “It’s also important for local residents to come out on May 8 so that they can learn how they can get involved with the Friends of Marconi Plaza. Whether it’s planning family friendly events like movie nights and concerts or taking part in regular cleanups, volunteering with a park Friends group has something for everyone,” added Jennifer Mahar, of PHS.

The FBI and police are looking for a Grays Ferry man who is believed to have robbed three banks within the last 15 days. Daniel Hodgins, 30, was charged April 29 in federal court with bank robbery for the April 21 robbery of PNC Bank, 230 S. Broad St. and the April 26 robbery of TruMark Federal Credit Union, 1811 Daniel Hodgins JFK Blvd., according to FBI spokesman J.J. Klaver. The FBI also believes that he was responsible for the robbery at Republic First Bank, 1601 Market St., 1 p.m. Monday where he handed the teller a threatening note and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to Klaver. Hodgins is white, 5-foot-7, 175 pounds with brown hair and green eyes. During Monday’s robbery, he was wearing a plain dark blue baseball cap, a light blue T-shirt and tan cargo pants. He is considered armed and dangerous. He served time for a 2002 robbery in which he was found guilty of robbery, possession of an instrument of crime and a firearm violation, according to court documents. To report information, call the FBI at 215-418-4000. SPR

CHILDS SCHOOL continued from page 10 not safe and that’s the issue, that the building currently is not safe,” Evans added. State Rep. Kenyatta Johnson, who runs the Peace Not Guns mentorship program at Childs, shared the concern of safety. Although he’s not in full support of the move, in addition to community education, he believes that the relationship between the two principals — Evans and Barratt’s Roy McKinney — can make the change a successful one. “It really comes down to leadership,” the Childs and Barratt alum said. “You can have the best building. If leadership sucks, then everything around it sucks.” But students were still upset with some even stepping up to the mic to ask a question and leaving in tears. Seven-year-old Dajoira Hudson, of 17th and Tasker streets, told the panel she was afraid of the potential change. “I don’t want to go to Barratt and I’m scared to go to Barratt,” the first-grader said as she started to sob. “I see kids on the street fighting and I think they go to Barratt and I don’t want to go to Barratt.” The district has vowed to add more school police and upgrade cameras inside and outside of Barratt in addition to the

ongoing renovations that are occurring inside the building, Superintendent Arlene Ackerman’s Deputy Chief of Staff, Danielle Floyd said. But that did not ease Childs’ seventhgrader Nina Wilson. “We got each others’ back, so what are we going to do for the little kids?,” the 13-year-old asked. “And also what do you think the security is going to do? They’re still going to torment us. … We’re still going to be unprotected.” Last Halloween, Childs students were egged by their peers at Barratt, she said. “They had egg stains on their shoes and on their T-shirts,” she told the panel. “What y’all going to do about it?” SPR Contact Staff Writer Amanda Snyder at asnyder@southphillyreview.com or ext. 117.

But to Neumann-Goretti Admissions Director Veronica Oster, Jenniferâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s qualities have been anything but clichĂŠ. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jennifer is a very kind and friendly student who is always willing to help others,â&#x20AC;? Oster said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She puts a lot of effort into all of what she does. She is very involved in all school activities.â&#x20AC;? The resident of the 2200 block of South 15th Street holds a perfect at-

Jennifer Chau tendance mark and has received first honors in academics. Jennifer noted she excels in English and languages. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I enjoy being able to express myself through writing and learning about various cultures,â&#x20AC;? she said. After school, this assiduous student divides her time between the art and technology clubs, the Community Service Corps, Mathletes, and a number of other extracurricular activities.

Hit ing a high note Putting a signing career on hold when her two sons were diagnosed with autism, a local artist is taking the stage for the first time in a decade this Saturday. By Jess Fuerst Review Contributor

t age 17, Denine, from 12th Street and Oregon Avenue, was seeing her dreams come true. “It’s funny because there was a demo out — I made it in someone’s basement — of [Bette Midler’s] ‘Wind Beneath my Wings.’ Gino came across the demo, at 17 I had met him,” Denine said of her now ex-husband but still close friend. “An independent label backed my first record, put it out and then Viper/Metro picked it up. “From that point on it was full steam ahead.” Touring, concerts and Billboard-topping singles were a taste of the glitz and glamour Denine — who only goes by her first name since starting ‘in the biz’ — was going to have. When her son, Gino Jr., was diagnosed with autism at three-and-a-half years old, the engine propelling her career forward began to stutter. Later, when her second son, Michael, was diagnosed with the same disease, it all came to a screeching halt “It was very hard to balance both — I needed to work and I needed to maintain certain things and insurance does not cover everything,” Denine said. “For me, I needed to do this not only for him but for me. I did maintain my career for a while. He was 7 years old when I had Michael — then you have two children. It was too difficult when Michael was diagnosed at 1 year old, he showed signs faster. “When I had my second son, I decided to kind of pull out of the music business and focus on being with them.” Denine put down the mic and worked on providing the best care she could for her two sons. Now, at 37, with a pair of healthy and prospering boys, it’s time to turn the attention back on her. “I did a meet-and-greet at South Philly Bar & Grill, and Tony and Dana Bruno approached me [about doing a concert]. I was reluctant. I haven’t done a show in over 10 years,” Denine said of the March event at 1235 E. Passyunk Ave. Putting hesitations aside, Denine began a head-dive back into


Lifestyles the scene. Working with producers Mike Rizzo and Steve Migliori in a Cherry Hill, N.J. studio, Denine laid down her first new single, “Shine,” and signed on to do an event May 8 at Chickie’s and Pete’s Play 2, 1526 Packer Ave. “It is $20 a ticket and it’s sold out. One dollar per ticket is donated to autism Speaks,” Denine, who will be performing her old hits “Baby, I Love You,” “All Cried Out,” “Love of a Lifetime” and her new single “Shine,” said. “Dana approached me about doing it — it was sort of like it’s something I want to do all the time. Any show I do, I’d love to have, even if it’s a dollar a ticket, go to Autism research. “Not just because my kids are Autistic, but it’s an epidemic now.” Though the performance is just to “get our feet wet,” Denine, who moved to Jersey when she married her new husband, Vince, three years ago, is excited to be playing to a hometown crowd in a local landmark (which was generously donated by owner Pete Ciarrocchi for the event). “That was where everything started. I have the most amazing family and friends in Philadelphia and in New Jersey, but I love South Philly.” DENINE LATTANZO WAS born to parents Susan and Frank Jr. in the South Philadelphia

home where her father still resides today. The middle child between older brother Frank 3rd and younger brother John, Denine started singing at age 6. “I went to Girard Academic Music Program because it focused more on the music theory of things. I thought it was great,” Denine said of her high school days at 22nd and Ritner streets. “This is what I’ve done my whole life and loved and I never had pushy parents or stage parents.” In fact, Denine’s father required she finish high school before signing a record deal, which is what she did. However, once the wheels of the music career got turning, Denine knew she was doing what she was born to do. “The hometown stations, Q102, that station was my saving grace. But if you don’t have a good record they aren’t going to play it.” Denine said. “‘I Remember You’ was the one that broke the Billboard Hot-100. From a small indie label that I was on, for it to break Billboard, that was something.” Pregnant with her first son, she recorded several more records and was told when Gino Jr. was almost a month old that her success meant she needed to get ready to go on tour. “I did it in a timely way. I made it where I wasn’t away from my son longer than I needed to be,” Denine said.

The fun stopped when Gino Jr.’s vocabulary began to regress and Denine took him to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, where a doctor diagnosed him with Autism, an early onset developmental disorder that affects children’s ability to establish social and communication skills. “Autism was not something that was familiar at that time. The only thing I knew at that point of autism was the movie ‘Rain Man’ and I’m thinking, ‘Oh no!’,” Denine said of the 1988 Oscar-winning film featuring Dustin Hoffman. Currently, an estimated 1.5 million Americans are affected by the umbrella of classifications under the autism spectrum of disorders. However, little is known of the diseases’ cause and early detection, which results in cognitive therapies to improve growing children’s skill sets, is the focus of current treatment methods. “Maybe because I was young and naïve, but I said, ‘no way, I’m not settling for that answer,’” Denine said of early doctors’ insistence Gino Jr., now 16, would never speak normally. “He, God bless him, today, to look at him, you would never even know. He moved from full-blown autism to Asperger’s syndrome. “He performed in the school play and he was outstanding. This is a kid that they told me wouldn’t talk and here he is on

stage — and on his own.” Seeing her sons progress well has let Denine focus on her passion and former career, which her mother urged her to continue. “My mother would constantly say to me, ‘You lost something because you don’t sing anymore.’ My mother stressed that to me up until the day she died,” Denine said. “Even if it was just for me, not for money or to get on the radio — my mother felt like I needed to do it.” The cosmic pieces pulled together, starting from the meet-and-greet in March and progressing to laying down the first track, “Shine” — two weeks ago. “My older son, he just thinks it’s the coolest thing,” Denine said. In attendance this Saturday will be her father, two brothers, extended family members, neighbors and perhaps the two most important critics: Gino Jr. and her mother, in spirit. “I’m excited to perform, I’m nervous because it’s been a long time and it’s something that I’ve always loved to do,” she said. “I’ve been given a second chance and I’m going to take it for whatever it’s worth and just run with it. “If my mother has anything to do with it, I think I’ll be alright.” SPR Comment at http://www.southphillyreview. com/news/lifestyles.

By Tom Cardella Columnist

Sinking Arizona

C

onventional wisdom in Arizona is that it is under attack by illegal immigrants. Why else pass a draconian law that is likely to result in targeting Hispanics, who are here legally, in the state? That’s not the opinion of your liberal columnist, but the opinion of former Florida Republican Congressman and current MSNBC host Joe Scarborough. Tom Tancredo, who has made a career out of verbally bashing immigrants, thinks the Arizona law goes too far. Tancredo saying an immigration law goes too far is like Lindsay Lohan coming out for prohibition. The guy known as “Bush’s brain,” Karl Rove thinks the Arizona law may be unconstitutional. So what is going on in Arizona? Polls show that 70 percent of Arizonans support the new law. Are the state’s lawabiding citizens being murdered in their homes by rampaging Mexicans crossing the border, or is there something in the state’s drinking water? Consider these facts from the internet website of conservative think tank CATO and “Commentary Magazine” — violent crime is down in Arizona — the lowest it has been in four decades. Crimes committed by immigrants are no greater than those by the general population. With these statistics in hand and even many conservatives wary of the new law, it is fair to wonder what is triggering what seems to be mass hysteria in Arizona? “Commentary” points out that many of the myths perpetuated about the new immigrants are the same ones that were leveled against Italians and European Jews when they came to this country. Italians and Jews, at that time, were blamed for rising crime and were thought to be undermining the dominant Anglo-American culture. Pat Buchanan tars today’s immigrants with the same brush, even though his Irish ancestors suffered the same bias. One politician wants to place microchips in every immigrant so we can track them. He says that we can do it with animals, why not immigrants? There is yet more irony in the timing of the new Arizona law. Liz Goodwin of “Yahoo News” points out that the number of illegal immigrants in Arizona dropped by 100,000 in the last year. Nationwide, the number of illegal im-

migrants declined from 2008 to ’09 by almost two million. Goodwin thinks that the new law was prompted by the murder of an Arizona rancher that might have been committed by an illegal immigrant involved in Mexico’s drug war that spilled over the border. She also believes the political primary season in Arizona is a key factor. Both Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer and U.S. Sen. John McCain are facing rugged primary fights for their political lives. I’m not arguing that illegal immigration isn’t a problem. The federal government has long been too lax in committing the proper resources to securing our borders, if only for national security reasons. I have previously written in this column that no nation can allow unfettered immigration and a first step toward a sane immigration policy would be to secure our border the best we can. But we should not forget that the business community in these border states has been complicit in the problem by enticing what they see as cheap labor to cross the border. We also must face the fact that we can never totally stop illegal immigration. As Peter Beinart, the senior writer for “The Daily Beast,” once said at a Union League lecture I attended, you can build fences 30 feet high, but people who are desperate for jobs to feed their families, will find a way to cross the border. The anti-immigrant hysteria is not confined to Arizona. I get frequent e-mails from people who whine about illegal immigrants getting coddled here and say they are a financial drain on our resources. There are people that view a new taco stand on East Passyunk Avenue as a sign of the coming apocalypse. In real life, illegal immigrants pay social security taxes that help sustain the system. If they are taking American jobs, they are usually jobs no American wants. These immigrants pick our fruit, work in the kitchens of our favorite restaurants, act as nannies and tend to gardens for the wealthy. The predictable calls for a boycott of all things Arizonian is just silly feel-good stuff that never accomplishes anything and punishes mostly people who have nothing to do with the new immigration law. It appears the constitutionality of the law will be challenged and many legal experts seem confident that it will be overturned. But we can learn from this legal debacle. In the absence of tough, but humane federal immigration laws, states will act, and not always act wisely. Washington must act before other states join the witch hunt.

Too cute

“Babies” follows four infants — including Bayar, who resides with his family in Mongolia — from birth to their first steps.

By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

W

ith our constant, subconscious desire to find reflections of ourselves, we adults perceive babies the way we do animals: If an infant, puppy or duck-billed platypus displays even a hint of grown-up behavior or a mature personality, it’s terribly cute and funny. Thus, the laughs and “awwws” come steady and strong in “Babies,” a flyon-the-wall nature documentary that just happens to be about expressive miniature humans, and holds tight to the theme of our close relation to, and interactions with, members of other species. Based on an idea by Alain Chabot and directed by Thomas Balmes, this concise and well-observed picture charts the first year of life for four babies: Ponijao of Namibia, Bayar of Mongolia, Mari of Tokyo and Hattie of San Francisco. Each child’s respective experience is further removed from nature, yet each takes in the world in similar ways, and each curiously crosses paths with the pawed and the feathered — be the setting the wilderness, a zoo or a town house. More than anything else, the film deftly and gently explores our collective animalism. And it does not exploit. With no voiceover narration, intermittent benign music and minimal dialogue, what we’re essentially left with is a camera that simply wants to watch — and so do we, as these babies do the darnedest things. Comedians whose movies have recently tanked might be crushed to find how much raw comic firepower lies in a plain shot of Hattie letting out hiccups, or in a scene where Mari falls to pieces after failing to master her stacking rings. Priceless stuff.

Occasionally, the babies look square into the camera, which they of course have no reason to shy away from. Usually, though, they just gaze inquisitively at the adults in the film, whose quirks and varying methods of rearing are regarded with near-equal fascination. The babies seem to be thinking, “Who are you weird and wild creatures?,” not knowing that, soon enough, they’ll be grown-up animals themselves, with weird behaviors and wild personalities of their own.

Babies PG Three reels out of four In area theaters tomorrow

Recommended Rental Edge of Darkness R Available Tuesday Mel Gibson makes a ferocious comeback in “Edge of Darkness,” a Boston-set revenge thriller adapted from a BBC TV series and directed by Martin Campbell (“GoldenEye”). Gritty, intelligent and surprisingly uncompromising, the film proves a fine performance vehicle for its controversial leading man, whose recent off-screen antics are eclipsed by his seasoned, undiminished acting chops. Ray Winstone and Danny Huston co-star. SPR Comment on these movies or reviews and see the trailers at www.southphillyreview.com/artsand-entertainment/movies

Philly

T

ypically, Memorial Day weekend is the kickoff to the summer barbecue season. But with the temperatures soaring above 80, why wait? While the burgers and dogs are cooking, it’s a good idea to have a starter dish or two ready for guests. Karen Griffith prefers starting her gatherings with a little southern comfort food. The resident from the 100 block of Mifflin Street suggests her Texas Caviar Bean Dip for snacking. This simple recipe can be made a day in advance. Add seasonal fruit and the menu is complete. SPR

Karen’s Texas Caviar Bean Dip INGREDIENTS:

1 cup of olive oil 1/2 cup of cider vinegar 1 cup of sugar 1 can of black-eyed peas 1 can of shoepeg corn 1 can of pinto beans 1 small jar of red pimentos 1/2 green pepper, diced 1/2 onion, diced

Your favorite recipe could earn you a gift certificate to a local restaurant, so why not share your delicious home cooking with your neighbors? Consider it a way to break bread with thousands without the nasty cleanup.

Twenty Manning Grill By Phyllis Stein-Novack R e s ta u r a n t R e v i e w e r

oan Rivers is the queen of facelifts. I do not know how many times she went under the knife to correct her wrinkles and imperfections. She did have rhinoplasty, but I am not sure whether she ever endured Botox injections. When a restaurant becomes a bit weary, it is a good idea to freshen up the interior and remodel the menu. Audrey Claire Taichman and her business partner chef Kiong Banh did just that. They closed Twenty Manning, spruced it up, reduced prices and re-opened last week as Twenty Manning Grill. My friend Dan, who works near Rittenhouse Square, joined me at 6:30 p.m. “They are seating us in Siberia,” I said as the hostess led us to a corner in the back room. However, I did not mind. The dining rooms are awash with Van Gogh sunflower yellow comfortable banquettes, whitewashed walls, a white painted tin ceiling and hardwood floors. Although Twenty Manning Grill is casual, tables are set with linen napkins, which is a plus. There is a well-stocked bar and wines can only be ordered by the glass. Dan and I sipped a Les Font Sauvignon Blanc ($9), which was a little grassy but not spectacular. Banh’s revised menu highlights French, Italian and New American bistro fare. It includes pasta, burgers and potstickers keeping company with roast chicken and the dish of the day. We nibbled on fresh, crusty rolls slathered with butter and disCoffee/Café/Sweets Caffe Chicco: 2532 S. Broad St., 215-334-3100, $

cussed the bill of fare. Moules frites ($10) was a large kettle of piping hot plump mussels sitting in a light broth which was studded with red pepper flakes. These were French fries at their best. Not salty. Not greasy. I added a little salt. Dan and I finished them with ease. We advised our server we wanted to share each dish. She brought two soup spoons for us to dish out the first course. The mussels were among the finest I’ve savored. I thought the broth needed more of a kick, such as more garlic and salt. Three homemade, crispy and long croutons were there for dipping. Next up was iceberg and bleu ($7), a steakhouse favorite for me. Dan has never been to a steakhouse and never tried what some places call the wedge. The iceberg, which was topped with bits of bacon, was immaculately fresh, cold and crisp. We did not care for the dressing. Although there were chunks of Gorgonzola used in its creation, it had an odd tangy and sweet flavor which was disappointing. One of my favorite pastas is Bucatini bathed in Amatriciana sauce. This simple dish is prepared with sautéed onions, some pancetta for crispness and a chili or hot pepper flakes. Dan never tasted it, so we decided to share. It arrived cold and the pasta was nearly raw. I like pasta prepared al dente but this was inedible. Roast chicken is a staple of every Paris and New American bistro. The roast chicken ($17) was splendid. It was roasted just Italian

right and not a bit overcooked. A small mound of creamy mashed potatoes and fresh spring peas were included in what appeared to be a cast-iron pan. Dan and I would have liked to see some pan juices included in the dish but we both enjoyed it. Dan toted some home. I sipped a glass of Crios Balbo Malbac ($10), which drank well with the chicken, and Dan selected a Castello Sangiovese ($9). The noise level kept escalating during dinner. Twenty Manning Grill was filling up. I overheard an 80-something couple specifically ask the hostess if Taichman was in the restaurant. Save room for dessert. We shared a berry cobbler ($5) which was uncommonly good. It was topped with a generous scoop

By Phyllis Stein-Novack Food Columist

S

omeone recently asked me, ”if you did not become a writer, what would you be?” An interesting list popped into my head. I would love to be an actress, a jazz singer, a police detective or an orchestra conductor. My No. 1 choice: I would love to own and operate an independent bookstore. If I chose any of the above, I would still be a writer. A writer is someone you are, not what you do. One of my favorite pastimes is browsing in bookstores. I especially enjoy The Friends of the Free Library store. I pick up bargains galore. I recently discovered a 1967 copy of “French Cooking in the New World: Louisiana Creole and French-Canadian Cuisine” by Frances D. and Peter J. Robotti. Old cookbooks are fun to read and are quite educational. You discover what was popular during certain decades and discover how cookbooks have evolved. The photography is not as up to snuff as in today’s versions because professional food stylists have a strong hand in the images. The tragic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has prompted me to write about Creole and Cajun cuisines with recipes from “French Cooking in the New World.” Creole cuisine is a mix of African-American, Caribbean, Italian and French cuisines. Cajun is the French-Canadian cuisine of Louisiana. The holy trinity of onion, celery and peppers is featured in many dishes. Garlic and

tomatoes also pop up frequently. In the past, I have given you recipes for jambalaya, shrimp Creole and gumbo. While perusing this book, I found interesting recipes using okra.

■ Eggplant with Okra ■ and Tomatoes Ingredients:

1 eggplant, cut in half lengthwise 1 teaspoon of salt 2 quarts of water 2 tablespoons of butter 1/2 cup of celery, diced 1 green pepper, chopped 2 tablespoons of flour 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1 can of Trappey’s okra and tomatoes 1 egg, beaten 1/2 teaspoon of salt 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper 1/2 teaspoon of Mexi-Pep 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise 2 tablespoons of bread crumbs

Directions: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Boil the eggplant in the salted water for 15 minutes. Drain in a colander under cold water. Remove the pulp and set aside. Reserve the shells for stuffing. In a large frying pan, melt the butter. Add

Directions: Season the okra with the salt and pepper. Roll the okra in the egg and then in the cracker crumbs.

I AM NOT THE ONE

You know when you hear the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am not the oneâ&#x20AC;? it usually means that trouble is on the way or a fight is getting ready to start. People generally take a few steps back. Well I am writing and talking to all the old folks, young folks, teachers, preachers, grandmoms, grandpops, mommies, poppies, aunts, uncles, cousins and YOU. Remember when you walk down the street, get out your car, come out or go in your house donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry about me because I am not the one. I am not the one that will hit you in the head, put a gun in your face, destroy the school, spray paint the church, disrespect a headstone or roll with the flash mob. I am screaming out to you, when you see me DONâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T BE AFRAID TO SPEAK, I WILL LISTEN. I NEED YOU. YOU NEED ME. YES ITâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S A CRAZY WORLD, A CRAZY TIME. IT MAY TAKE A MINUTE FOR YOUR SEEDS TO GROW, SODONâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T GIVE UP ON ME. When you see me take a few steps back, look at me for the person that, with your guidance, I can be. You see I am afraid that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re afraid, I hurt when you hurt. I will respect you and I want to be respected. So letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s take this thing one kind and uplifting word at a time. Do it in the house, on the block, in the neighborhood, city, state and world until everyone understands that...

I AM NOT THE ONE! Written by Maria 2010

Mom,

We miss you so much, our hearts are empty. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where to start... Mom, life isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the same without you, I miss your encouragement when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sad, I miss sharing happy moments with you, and most of all your strength when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid. I miss the touch of your hands and all your hugs. I miss hearing you say how much you love your three beautiful children. Mom the love you showed us all these years will last a lifetime. We just want to tell you that you are the greatest mom in the world and we love you so much. And you are truly our hero. We will continue to do good and succeed in life to make you proud. Mom you made us very strong, and you will live in us forever. Love, Your Kids, Bernadino (Tricia), Maria Ann (Jimmy) & Christina (Donna)

BOCCE NEWS

By Bill Gelman he Philadelphia Flyers might’ve taken the Wachovia Center ice last night trailing the best-of-seven series against the Boston Bruins 2-0, but there is still plenty of fight left in the home squad. Sure they’ve been hit hard by injuries, but that is all part of the game. If the current squad needs some added inspiration, they may want to catch the new HBO Sports documentary “Broad Street Bullies,” a look at one of pro sports’ most polarizing teams, the legendary Philadelphia Flyers Stanley Cup championship squads of the 1970s, which debuted Tuesday night on the cable network. This exclusive presentation includes the backstories of these engaging and colorful athletes who won back-to-back Stanley Cups in ’74 and ’75 with a bold, aggressive style that sparked controversy and criticism. The film has received rave reviews from Comcast-Spectacor Chairman and Flyers founder Ed Snider. “HBO’s Broad Street Bullies is an excellent and well-produced documentary that portrays the evolution of the Philadelphia Flyers,” Snider said in a press release. “It brings back many wonderful memories for me, and it uncovers some new insights into the great story of our two Stanley Cup Championship teams. “We are truly honored that this part of Philadelphia Flyers history will be seen nationally on HBO.” The story dates back to the early Spectrum days in which the Flyers rose to prominence under the guidance of coach Freddie Shero. With larger-than-life figures like Dave “The Hammer” Schultz, Bobby Clarke, Bill Barber, Bernie Parent, Ed Van Impe, Bill Clement, Rick MacLeish, “Moose” Dupont, Bob Kelly, Joe Watson and Gary Dornhoefer, the team won many games, fought in just about all

of them and made numerous enemies. “This film explores how a group of characters, who also happened to be an extraordinarily talented collection of hockey players that enjoyed contact on the ice, formed one of the most prominent and controversial teams in pro sports history,” Ross Greenburg, president, HBO Sports, said. “We are going to re-trace the steps that led to the love affair between the city and the team, and show how to this day

these players are revered in Philadelphia and despised elsewhere.” Upcoming airings are 11 a.m. May 8; 8:30 a.m. May 10; noon May 12; and 6 p.m. May 20. It also will air on HBO On Demand through June 7. SPR Contact Managing Editor Bill Gelman at bgelman@southphillyreview.com or ext. 123. Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/sports.

Don’t tase me bro May 4

S

ecurity at Citizen’s is no joke. At last night’s Phillies-Cardinals game, it seems a lowly 17-year-old boy decided to attempt the ultimate fan’s expression (with clothes on, at least). Steve Consalvi made a run for it across the field in the eighth inning of last night’s game. Unfortunately for him, a policeman at the field decided to Taser him. My favorite part of the article at http:// www.philly.com/philly/news/breaking/20100504_Tasered_teens_mom_ apologizes__wont_let_him_talk.html is that the parents (mom and stepdad) are

not mincing words about their son, calling him “dumb.” Also, he apparently was polite enough to ask his father for permission before he went on the field. Permission was not explicitly granted, though it was not denied. It’s always easier to ask for forgiveness, rather than permission, right? Joking aside, I don’t think Tasers are really necessary for kids running around on fields. The zero-tolerance mentality may deter some of the less stubborn would-be streakers, but consider this: A cop recently had to resign after Tasing 30 kids at a career fair at their request. Why is Tasing this misguided 17-year-old, who did not verbally consent, any different?
