A NYC Upper West Side librarian says unruly tweens have become such a threatening menace to her and her staff that she needs police protection.
"They're 12 and they have no respect for us," said Bloomingdale Library manager Rebecca Donsky at a recent 24th Precinct Community Council meeting, her voice shaking with emotion as she pleaded for help controlling the youngsters.
Donsky said she asked her husband to get her pepper spray because she's worried the pre-teens might jump her one night as she's locking up at the end of a shift.
She's regularly forced to kick out rude tweens, who have called her "b--ch" more times than she can count, Donsky said.
