Skateboarding: it is a crime in the US, apparently

Continuing our popular series of how there are places abroad with ideas we should adopt in the city, we are pleased to send this lovely video of a policeman arresting some kids for skateboarding.

Some people complain that we in this blog give skateboarders a hard time, but that's just because, like pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders, they slow us down and don't pay any road tax. We do try and attend PACT meetings and complain about skateboarders -more news on that another day- but we haven't ever seen a policeman in this city give teenage skateboard criminals the treatment they deserve.
