Greece PD Stays Busy Ticketing Skateboarders?

From craigslist:

"SKATEBOARDING IS NOT A CRIME"

GREECE POLICE SEEM TO BE RELENTLESS WHEN IT COMES TO HARASSING KIDS ABOUT SKATEBOARDING. THIS IS TOTAL xxxxxxxx. DONT THEY HAVE ANYTHING BETTER TO DO LIKE FIGHT REAL CRIME. TO GIVE A KID A TICKET FOR J-WALKING WHILE SKATEBOARDING ON THERE OWN STREET IS REEEEEEEEEEE-DIC-ULESS. MAYBEE A PRISON GUARD WOULD BE A BETTER CARRIER FOR SOME OF YOU SELF RIGHTIOUS COPS. ANGER AND RESENTMENT MAKES FOR BAD POLICE WORK. STOP TAKING IT OUT ON OUR KIDS

Well we know it wasn't at Norhgate cause the police and town ignore that area. ( Well per some)

Well if your kid is skateboarding in and out of traffic on Dewey Avenue he does deserve a ticket and you being the idiot parent deserves one as well. Good way for your kid to get killed and then you would want to sue fhe driver. Another parent with no parental skills.

No one would want to skateboard there. It is disgusting and the pavement is a mess.
And how can a person be ticketed for being in a side street. That is police harassment.
So if you are walking on the correct side of the street is that jaywalking? If you are on a bicycle and choose to be not on the right as if you are a car and on the left as a walker should be, is that a crime?
This is ridiculous. And a waste of police time and tax money as we prosecute these people.
This is maybe profiling but most skaterboarderss seem to be very laid back young people that mind their own business and get out of your way if need be.

To 2:31 you missed the sarcasm. I don't even have kids of age to skateboard.

My point was that a few of Greece's mouth pieces have been very vocal about the LACK of police presence in the Northgate area. So hence it did not happen there :)!
