I do agree with him, but i also no that parents can not keep their eyes on their child/ren 24/7. I was a teen that used to sneak out all the time because my mother was so strict. I couldnt do shit..

Maybe the teens snuck out to do stupid shit. I bet the 4 that didn't die don't do that again.

Of course they should have been in bed; it was half past ten on a Tuesday night. But these aren't preschoolers we're talking about. I find those remarks inappropriate. Note to self: never move to Philly.

He is correct but they are teenagers and where there is a will they will find a way. They wouldnt be the first kids to ever sneak out after mom and dad are in bed. I have an 18 yo and 15yo son and I dont get up at midnight on a Tuesday night and check to make sure my boys are in bed. All we can do is teach them the things we feel is imperative to their needs and futures and pray like hell that they listen. So, yes they should have been in bed but that doesnt mean the mayor has a right to overestimate the boundaries that come with his position.
