This morning on his Friday radio show WOR’s John Gambling called the numerous incidents "just outrageous," and said, "I haven't heard anybody really you know kind of get up in arms about it."
"Well some of the press today was 'where are the people, the local leaders, and elected officials,' said the Mayor.
"The behavior is just…" Gambling said before being interrupted by the Mayor.
“Well No. 1, you’ve got to remember that teenagers misbehave and there are some events at all pools so let’s not just rush," said Bloomberg.
"McCarren Pool is a big new pool. The city spent $ 50 million dollars. We had a big meeting I think it was yesterday, or the day before yesterday - I think it was yesterday when ever it was - with police and [the] Parks Department to make sure that we’re doing everything we can.
Part of it (the problem) is once it becomes fashionable and kids rushing to it - we will not tolerate this. We’re just not going to tolerate it. Do we want to close the pool? Of course not. Kids need a place to go. Don't forget most kids don’t misbehave. Most kids follow the rules. Most parents don’t let their kids defecate in the pool. But it’s a big world out there. We’re going to keep working on it."
