Teens in the parking lots

Marion, NC

#1 Jun 27, 2011
Teen boys and girls are hanging out in the peebles parking lot is the only thing we can do. Cops pull up and turn on their blue lights and make us leave. Hanging out in parking lots is the only thing teens can do. I wish someone would make a place for us to do. I don't understand why they make us leave. We are just hanging out haveing a good time. We keep the parking lot clean. Im sure parents would rather their teen hang out in a peebles parking lot than to be out at partys. I think we should be able to hang out in the parking lots.

I don't know why but it seems like everytime we make a teen hangout it gets run out of town. Teens need something to do besides hang out in the parking lots tho. Instead of complaining about the teen pregnancy rates and drug use they should be creating something fun for you guys to do besides have sex and do drugs... Good luck with that!

I'm a mother of 4 and I agree 110%- what's the harm-- u just want somewhere to talk, maybe listen to radio....and it is free! I don't see the problem. And it's usually after hrs AND it's not taking up important parking- u park to the side.

Yes good luck getting anything in this town for teenagers to do. If the cops are running people out of parking lots, then they should be ran out of a no loading zone in front of ingles while they flirt with the cashiers when they are supposedly "on duty"

What's the harm? I thought that too. I drove to Peebles the other night around 1AM to sit and eat some Taco Bell.

Now I'm an adult, and supported hanging out there fully.

I drove up and the entire place is completely covered in trash. Cup after cup, bag after bag, and napkin after napkin.

That's why. You get the disrespectful and ignorant people to ruin it for everyone.

I know something teens can do besides hang out in a parking lot. There are several things actually.
Try reading a book. Or you could organize a community cleanup. Go to your elderly neighbors and ask if they need help around the house. Volunteer at a nursing home or hospital. Find out if the Sherrif or Police has an Explorer Post.
Do SOMETHING. Get off your butt and stop whining because someone won't hand your life to you on a silver platter.

And how long are you supposed to do that? What are teens supposed to do in the evening or night?

The movie theater here is a joke. The bowling alley is the only "half decent" thing that is left, and who wants to bowl EVERY night?

A Sheriff / Police Explorer post? Is that a joke? What teen wants to be Mr. Plastic Badge for a day?

I talked to a friend that works for MPD about the situation with the kids hanging out in business parking lots and recieved a response that I agreed with. I agree that the teenagers dont have alot to do in Marion and while major criminal issues dont normally take place with the teenagers they do cause some problems for the businesses. The police dont single out certain crowds, they just have a job to do of protecting the businesses. The major problems that police have is mostly with trash and reckless driving. I have personally seen the parking lots destroyed by trash around peebles after all the kids have left and people driving so bad they they could kill themselves or the crowd in the parking lot. If the kids would respect the property and not destroy the place, nothing would ever be said. Maybe one day, the people complaining about the police being the problem will realize that its a job that they have to do.

These are teenager in real life not from a 1950's sitcom. Give them a break.

At least when we are hanging out in parking lots and not doing any drugs. I think if we keep the parking lots clean the cops should let us hang out in the parking lots. We arnt doing any thing wrong we just want to hang out and have a good time, we dont want to hang out with a bunch a old people. I could under stand if peebles was open and people was trying to get in there, but there not they are closed when we hang out there.

You realize the reason teens like to hang out at peebles is because it's closed. They need a place to blow off steam and nursing homes just don't do it lol.

So hold off a couple of months and give them the wal mart side. It will help keep weeds from growing between the pavement cracks.

Try this. All teens that are hanging out in the lot, move out of the city limits to hang out. The city police cant do anything, and SO want get off butts and come out to do anything. Your not the first group to go through this. Want be last.
