A West Conshohocken Borough councilman has been charged with drunken driving and disorderly conduct after confrontations with police Tuesday night in which he allegedly shouted obscenities at officers and threatened to have them fired. Police also say the councilman, John T. Lawless, 51, of the 100 block of Moir Avenue, refused both a breath-alcohol test and a blood test, meaning that his driver's license could be suspended automatically. Lawless first came into contact with police when he stopped his car on the Matsonford Bridge and uttered obscenities at a Conshohocken officer who was assisting a disabled motorist on the West Conshohocken side of the bridge, according to police.

They have all gotten kids arrested at school. Classroom antics that once would end in a trip to the principal's office, detention, or, at worst, a suspension now end in a ride in a police car and an arrest record. The consequences can be grossly disproportionate to the conduct.

Mayor Kenney has proposed softening the city's stance on several so-called nuisance crimes, including, ahead of July's Democratic National Convention here, those commonly slapped on protesters. The shift, a sequel to Kenney's successful effort to decriminalize marijuana possession, would make violations that currently land on an offender's criminal record punishable by a $100 fine. His administration said the shift, introduced in legislation to City Council on Thursday, would keep 10,000 cases each year out of the criminal justice system while helping protect the city from lawsuits in the aftermath of the convention.

I IMAGINE the parents/families that scream and cause a scene when their kid's name is called during the graduation ceremony are just as rude and ignorant in other areas of their life, too. I assume they are the very ones who yell out at movies like they are watching in their living rooms; that talk in church while the ceremony is being conducted; that talk loudly on their cellphones in public. Could it be part of this "entitlement" generation? No one else's kid's name is on the same level as their kid's; no one's more important than their kid; nothing is more important than what they want to do . . . which is scream, cause a scene, most likely embarrass their kids.

Johnson said yesterday that demonstrators at the Broad Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue vigil were moving south toward Oxford Street when they saw the arrest of a homeless man who boarded a SEPTA bus without paying the fare.
