Delaware to Kids: No Basketball Hoops For You!

March 29, 2011

From That’s What She Said:

The Nanny State  in all its pervasive glory. For The Children ™ — no basketball poles/hoops on private property. I wonder how Michelle Obama feels about this. I mean, it is counter-intuitive to her Let’s Move program, no?

Also note that the police officer lied right on tape. She clearly told the man that he could keep the pole and that they would lay it down in his driveway. Mere seconds later, that request is refused and she pretends she never *just said* any such thing.

We have one of those at the end of our cul de sac. Just try and pry our kids’ basketball hoopies out of our cold dead hands.

    You bold the words “on private property,” but the sidewalk is public property. The hoop in the video was between the sidewalk and the road, so that strip of land does not belong to the homeowner. Most cities have a “utility easement” on the strip of land between the sidewalk and the road, and can access that land for any purpose.

    That doesn’t make this right. The taking of the hoop was douchebaggery of the highest order.
