Nutter expletive for shooters gets on TV

By Peter Mucha
Inquirer Staff Writer

Mayor Nutter, as seen in video applying a profanity to violent citizens. The remarks, aired on Fox29, got posted on YouTube.

After a Tuesday night shooting that killed three teens, an outraged Mayor Nutter had a few choice words to share outside City Hall.

Some viewers of Fox29 Wednesday night were surprised to hear one of those words on TV.

Here's the mayor's quote as captured on a YouTube video (www.philly.com/philly/video/137177578.html):

"The first way for young people to stop this stuff is for young people to be home, where they're supposed to be home, and for adults not to act like idiots and assholes out in the streets of our city shooting at kids in a car."

The mayor has no regrets or apologies, said Nutter spokesman Mark McDonald.

"He said what he said. He was clear about it, and he meant it," McDonald said. "He said what everybody else was thinking."

It's not the first time the mayor has used the "a" word publically.

In August, furious about two shootings at rec centers in less than a week, the mayor said: "It literally violates almost a code in our communities. . . . While there should be no violence on the streets of Philadelphia . . . it takes a complete asshole to do these kinds of things at a city facility."

Last January, the taking into custody of a Kensington Strangler suspect prompted the mayor to remark, "We got the mother------."

It's usually when the mayor's red with rage that his language gets a little blue.

In 2008, Nutter spoke of being "pissed off" by the failure of DHS to protect innocent children, and said that if his daughter had been affected, he would "kick their ass" himself.

Some objected after those remarks aired on 6ABC.

"I'm personally pissed off about this kind of behavior," the mayor said in July 2010 after three police officers were arrested on drug-peddling charges.

"On rare occasions, the mayor will assume a somewhat earthy tone," McDonald said. ". . . It is never an accident. He knows what he's saying and why."

The spokesman also recalled that October 2008, after the Phillies won the World Series, the mayor warned fans, "You can be joyous, you cannot be a jackass."

Requests for comment were also made to Fox29.

Give the man props for telling it like it is. It wont change anything but at least he spoke like a normal person would talk about a situation like this.

When he stops speaking in the bullshit PC code words and properly identifies the problem, then I'll give him props for speaking the truth.

I'd better work harder at teaching my little boy to cuss now, before all the words are gone. I know these are already taken:

A word
C word
F word
F word again (thanks alot Fez)
N word
R word

Surely there are more. F these N R A F Cs for shooting all these people.

That's the guy. Yelled at them for walking around with their pants hanging past
their ass, acting like thugs, ect.....(tnb stuff) I haven't liked a black mayor Philly
has voted in until this guy. Most of them have made excuses for the "community"
and filled city hall with their relatives and friends. Nutter actually seems to care
about the city and the way "his people" are acting. Good for him.

Still glad I moved out of there years ago.
