Sometimes I see cars of young people parked together in bunches late in the evening by the Ingles parking lot and/or the EHS parking lot. What are they doing? Just wondering.

Just informally hanging out - being cool! Not causing any troubles or problems for anyone anywhere.

... would you rather they be out vandalizing or creating mischief?

.. stop by sometime and join in. They're cool!

Probably because they were referred to as a "gang" in the header?

I called them a "gang" in the header because that's what they call themselves - an EHS student told me. Also, it's what they have named their facebook page - an EHS student also told me. It wasn't meant to be a derogatory label.

Loafing and socializing --- during the days when Broad Street still had the traffic islands down the middle of the street and gasoline was much less expensive, you would see many more streams of teenagers endlessly "crusing" and parking with friends at various Broad Street locations.

I read NOT the least bit of defensiveness in his remarks; just explanation. And I must agree with what he says; wholeheartedly. There are some very good youths about versus the troublemakers who sneak about.

What a bunch of LONG-TAILED ROGUES. I loved it.:):) Thanks for sharing. I bet they could make haste and waste in a real gang situation.

Okay. So it must be just a coincidence that when a police car cruises in the parking lot while they are there all the teenagers and their cars scatter and leave. Lol

Unless things have changed over the years (this is Carter County, nothing ever changes) they all leave because the police car cruising in the lot is on his way to run them off.

WTH...Gangs a**. No real gang will ever hang out in a parking lot. Troubled kids or bored kids, maybe, but no gang.
Gangs don't cruise or hang out in parking lots..lol.

Me too! My teen years the "place" was the whites parking lot. Although, I remember it was McDonald's parking lot before I turned 16.
I never remember any problems, a fist fight once in a blue moon, but usually just a place to see and be seen.
Life, how it takes a zip into another direction after those cruising days.
Do you remember the AMC cruising? I would sneak and drive over there, because mom was a little strict..lol. With children of my own now....I realize why she was.

I remember those days well, myself. I learned how to drive cruising Broad Street. My boyfriend had a 340 Plymouth Duster with white racing stripes. What a trip down memory lane...

Quoted from the Fonz,

I agree with you, metoo.

Me thinks the Fonz doth protest too much. Lol

I recently was being harassed by someone at the car wash near ingles and thanks to several of the people hanging out at ingles who came up there to see what was going on something that could have been a bad situation was quietly resolved. The person harassing me got spooked by the number of people that was pulling up and he left. I am not bothered by the fact these people hang out in groups in town I am thankful.
Talk to Ingles

For those of you who have somewhat already started to bash the police and I'm sure there will be more , you should talk to the manager of Ingles before you blame EPD for "running them off" ... It is requested that they leave by the manager or employees at night due to vandalism that HAS occured and apparently some customers feeling uneasy coming out of the store at night because there are so many people hanging out. I personally don't see a problem with it, nor do most of the officers, however they have to do their job just like the rest of us so if it's requested to have someone removed from private property, they have no choice :/
