Philadelphia Democrats Target Pedestrian Texting

Philadelphia Democrats have cooked up a new scheme to bring revenue into cash-strapped Philly – make it a crime to text or use your phone while walking and ticket offenders.

That’s right. Philadelphia Democrats want to make it a crime to text while walking in Philadelphia. This is part of their “Get Respect, Give Respect” campaign for social behavior modification.

Grant money is being used to fund the program. No word if Philadelphia officials will also give ticket agents brown shirts to wear while playing Gestapo.

Coverage of the story here.
