    didn't we see this same think against hippies and long-hairs back in the 60s and 70s?

    I was too young to remember. But apparently your memory pre-dates your birth. That's a pretty neat trick.

    It's called "loitering", and it's illegal in some places. So long as there's a sign posted saying "No loitering" and everybody is subject to it, I have no problem at all with stopping it.

    it's what happens when you crack open a book outside of HDTV manuals and dirty magazines.

    try it sometimes.

    Did the excerpt say "park". Why no, it didn't.

    Anyway, back to what I said, "no loitering" is a reasonable solution to the problem. City parks often have hours posted, and you can enforce those hours. I've certainly seen obnoxious groups encouraged to leave parks, haven't you?

    If you're going to offer an opinion about a newstory regarding a piece of proposed legislation, you might consider reading it first.
