Skateboarding reaches the news again….Probably not good
This was in the news today. I guess this happened a year ago.
The cop got suspended I guess but rumor is he is basically on paid leave. I got checked for warrant one time skating because the guy kept asking for our names and I asked him what he needed it for and after we got to an understanding I told him I wasn’t trying to mess with him but that I have had people treat me like the people in the videos before and he checked me for warrants just because I told him cops and security had treated me bad for riding my skateboard before and tried to chase me just for riding it. I’ve even had a cop tell me that I had to walk home and stopped me twice until I walked out of jurisdiction.
The cop that checked me for warrants was cool about it afterwards, I don’t want people thinking I’m anti-police cause the guy was just enforcing some new thing they have going out there and he let us stay at the spot and even talked to us about it. It’s just a funny and true story.
The guy who made me walk wasn’t cool cause when he came back and caught us riding down the road again he threatened to give us a ticket or something.
