What is in the drinking water in Philadelphia? Three black teens, two aged 17 and one 15, were charged with aggravated assault and related offenses after they beat up a Liberty Cabs passenger as he sat in a cab at a red light at the intersection of 15th and Chestnuts Streets Saturday night.

The kids shouted racially derogatory names at the passenger, as they pulled him out of the cab and threw an unknown substance in the cab, NBC 1o Philadelphia reports. The cab driver was also beaten when he came out of the car, but managed to grab a tire iron and scared the teens away. The cab driver suffered an injury to his right eye and had abdominal and side pain, police said. The passenger remains unidentified, Philly.com reports.

They were later arrested by police. Teens out looking for trouble and their parents not playing their roles. This is the reason why Mayor Michael Nutter has to call them names during press conferences. This behavior has to stop. These young thugs are wreaking havoc on parts of Philadelphia.

The Drudge Report is running with this story and I must admit, it’s a disgrace that some black youths continue to wreak havoc in Philadelphia. The parents should be hauled into court and held accountable for the monsters they have created. These three kids should face hate crimes, since they yelled racial epithets at the cabbie and passenger, who are both white.
